The blatant lying and hiding from the truth, all the while playing some semantics-based word game that distorts the very meanings of the words being used to excuse the machinations is beyond disgusting (Hatch is absolutely grotesque in his abuse of common sense here), yet we have a media pushing this blather down the throats of the American public like squeegee-weilding cleaners pushing shit and swill out of a pigsty and into the apparent gutter of the overall American “Mind”.
Forcing something so overreaching and powerful down the throats of not only the American people, but essentially any and ALL people in the associated nations, if not the entire Western trade system, is an illegality on it’s face, and should not being tolerated by ANY public ANYWHERE.
The obvious implications of not allowing anyone to even SEE it, much less have a public debate on it, should have ALL peoples affected out in the streets calling for politician’s heads. Which is the reasonable response to such abuse of a country’s people for the self-gain of a very few.
The profound corruption of our leaders and our processes is obvious and predictable, our lack of caring and our acceptance of our own inevitable fate if this succeeds is NOT so understandable.
Completely criminal scumbags, trying to frame an innocent man. Ok, technically a kid, but who cares right? Except his parents, and since they’re a minority, they’re not really humans to be cared about or listened to, right?
Corporation AND government are expressions/extensions of the will of the very rich.
In this country as in most, the goal is to transfer public wealth into private hands, wealth at that level and amount really only being power, as money is a fictional concept anyway.
THAT is the truth….people can argue about politics all they want, Dem/Repub etc, but it’s all a fool’s game if you focus on that dance.
Free markets without regulation will ALWAYS produce a kind of cannibalism, no matter how many Rand-ian fantasies fill high school student’s minds and never leave.
BTW, what’s going on in our country right NOW could not possibly be a better example of exactly that.
The Koch’s will tell you that they are just practicing their own form of Economic Darwinism, and that they are only doing what the system allows them to do…..which is true, but they will never admit the machinations and expense they go to in order to make SURE that the system “allows” them to practice their form of “libertarianism”.
You will see many arguing FOR this kind of thing, as tho it’s somehow just and as though they themselves will have a shot at it, or a part of it.
It’s NOT a meritocracy, they were BORN into a position that allowed this warped Destruction Fetus to grow into what it has become.
You would not be able to do it, and you will not share in the fruits of this system, but think so if you like, they are happy to have your help…just don’t expect a check for your efforts.
None of this shit we’re in is accidental.
Nor is it justifiable under any system, except one that only measures the human experience in terms of money.
But the best measures of the human experience are always fictions, aren’t they?
