friday night fright

Well today one of my favorite shows can back for a new season. It's on HBO and it is a political panel discussion show. I liked today's show because one of the panelists was a Pseudo-Intellectual.... He was a Brit that was espousing the New Republican Spin. Yes Bush is not very bright, but look at Clinton he changed his mind with very book he read HE WAS GASP!!! a ditherer and a reader. But Bush he might be dumb but he can recognize an enemy and a threat. I have a bird dog that's dumb as a brick but he can recognize an enemy and a threat, as nice as that trait is I AM not recommending the republican party make him president. Clinton may have been a ditherer but when it came to meeting out justice to Al Qaeda he did it by not embroiling us in a NO WIN war. There was a reason Colin Powell did not Go into Iraq. It was his experience in another NO WIN war Vietnam. Clinton just bombed the bastards. Clinton Knew how to be succinct and to the point. He was not perfect in foreign policy ignoring Rwanda was a huge mistake.

Another thing I love is price of gas. The oil companies have been swearing that there has been no price gouging, the president has sworn, the republican party swears it also. So why two months before the election prices are mysteriously lowering. Do these people honestly believe that we will not expect the prices to go up after the election, I do. Anyone who votes republican expecting the prices to go down Needs to seriously sue their school system for producing such ignorance or declare themselves brain dead and ready for organ harvesting.

summer time

Summertime is passing by quickly and thank you for that. Soon it will be labor day that wonderful holiday immortalized in the movie with William Holden, Kim Novak, RosalindRussell
and Susan Strasberg. Labor Day a holiday dedicated to the worker and unions. In this era of unbridled greed by corporate interests it is a bit of an anachronism. As the rich become obscenely wealthy and the working class more oppressed I wonder if the fading middle-class have realized that their partnership with the conservative leadership and religions are the cause of their slide in to the grave. It seems that the middle class bourgeiouise attitudes in the end will destroy them. Their need to legislate conservative morality will in the end destroy any financial and class gains they and their ancestors have made. Already it is easier for a lower class person to enter the middle-class in Europe than America. The first time ever in history America is slipping the middle-class is losing ground and money quickly, while rich are becoming wealthier as the percentage of multi-millionaires are becoming billionaire and now trillionaire is the next goal for them.

The sad thing is that most americans believes all these billionaire are making wealth for society, but sadly this is not the case. The billions of dollars is coming into their pockets by paying slave wages, taking away benfits and salary packages that are a tiny step away from embezzlement of retirement funds of employees.

The silent movie Metropolis showed a bleak future. Now in the new millenium instead of Europe evolving into worker slavery it is America beating path to this future.
