DIVE, DIVE, DIVE!
Well Cricketeers, I’ve been getting a bunch of email concerning the “american recovery and reinvestment act of 2009’’ aka “economic stimulus package” in corpoRATe media speak. The house version known as hr1 passed pretty much along parties lines with ALL filthy repubs voting against it, and all but 11 dirty dems voting for it. So much for obamessiah’s call for bipartisanship!
DAGNABIT! The truth is, early in every new presidency we get these calls for bipartisanship such as ethically challenged g’dubya’s “I’m a uniter not a divider” bullshit. This is all par for the course and part of the smokescreen to cover up the fact that the two parties of the apocalypse are really in cahoots. If the reverend mcPain had won we would have gotten a similar bill anyway. There is simply nothing the federal government can do at this point but SPEND, SPEND, SPEND.
SONOFABUSH! We are in a full out deflationary spiral and only by pumping massive amounts of taxpayer money into the failing economy can the feckless appaRATchiks in washingtOOn hope to preserve their gravy train. The corpoRATeers have run completely amok (with deregulatory support from both the dirty dems and filthy repubs) and crashed and burned the economy. If the two parties of the apocalypse don’t spend like crazy, there are only a couple of other things they could do to fix this mess. Both parties of the apocalypse would find those other possibilities not to their liking. What are they, you ask? I’ll be glad to answer that hehehe:
First, the filthy repub and dirty dem pigs could decide to go against the interests of the power elite, of which they are all card carrying members and move away from the low wage with shit benefits corpoRATe economy they have been building for decades. This is the real long term answer to the economic failure. To produce a REQUIREMENT that business’s MUST pay living wages and give benefits. THIS IS HOW YOU “MAKE WORK PAY”. But we can forget about that really happening. The pig rich corpoRATeers won’t allow their bought and prayed for republicRAT spin doctors in washingtOOn go that way. LIVING WAGES AND BENEFITS TO WORKING PEOPLE? NO, NO , NO! As that evil corpoRATe handyman bernie marcus has said. If the us economy was made to pay living wages and benefits “the usa is on the verge of becoming like france”. Gee handyman bernie, I ONLY WISH the usa was more like france! The french workers are better paid and receive far better benefits then workers in the us do. That goes for the rest of europe too. Why do the european workers do better then workers in the us? HERE’S WHY! This from usa today:
Nationwide French strike shuts trains, subwaysPARIS (AP) — Hundreds of thousands of angry and fearful French workers mounted nationwide strikes and protests Thursday to demand President Nicolas Sarkozy do far more to fight the economic crisis.
Public and private sector workers united in the protest to seek increases in salaries, greater protection for their jobs and more intensive government efforts to simulate the economy.
No fooling around over in france. The pig rich try to dump their economic failure on the workers over there, the workers shut down the whole damn country! What do workers here in the us do when the economic shit hits the fan? WHINE! Really, that’s all I’m hearing from YOU. WHINE, WHINE, WHINE! None of you are gonna take any action against the pig rich corpoRATeers. You’ll all go along to get along, just like you always have. That goes double for the unions here in the u s of a! There will be no national strike here. There won’t even be a major outcry. YOU, my countrymen are WIMPS! The pig rich have been ripping you off forever, and YOU will NEVER STAND UP AND DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT!
That all said, the second thing the two parties of the apocalypse could do to is:
CRIMINAL PROSECUTION OF THE corpoRATe THIEVES!
BUT OF COURSE WE ARE UNLIKELY TO SEE MUCH IF ANY OF THAT FROM the two parties of the apocalypse in washingtOOn because THEY ARE THE corpoRATe THIEVES!
If anyone needs a bit of PROOF that there is little likelihood of serious consequences to the corpoRATe thieves levied by the feckless appaRATchiks in washingtOOn take a gander at this from ap:
Obama calls $18B in Wall St. bonuses ‘shameful’
By BEN FELLER, Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama says it is irresponsible and shameful for Wall Street bankers to be paid huge bonuses at a time when the American public is dealing with economic hardship. The president reacted harshly Thursday to reports that corporate employees got paid more than $18 billion in bonuses last year.
Said Obama: “That is the height of irresponsibility. It is shameful.”
SHAME, SHAME!? Is that ALL? A bit of finger wagging and a stern talkin’ to? Jeez, ya gotta do better then that! How about some CRIMINAL CHARGES? I WANNA SEE corpoRATeer PERP WALKS!
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I have ALWAYS believed that there is nothing that would fix the corpoRATe wagon BETTER THEN A NICE NATIONAL STRIKE! A shame we’ll never see one from YOU wimps!
Tomorrow being the last Saturday of the month, we hope you will all tune in to another ClapSorific™ edition of ClapSo’s Video Funhouse!
