The Duped Tea Party Set

This is right from a Tea Party page on a major social website:

They are being set up by a fall too, by those who are busy destroying the economy from the top. They are ready and eager to clean out their pensions and bank accounts a la Cyprus.

The Tea Party set while right to be concerned about growing avenues of tyranny and over-taxation, are being duped just as much as the liberal Obama set.

They are told people are poor because they are "losers" and sadly, many of them believe the lies about the economy improving. They have been set up to defend the robber barons at all costs. While they blame Obama for everything, they will ignore that Bush brought the Patriot Act in to begin with.

Ever meet one of those libertarian types who may be good about civil liberties, but still will defend a world "free market" economy, and American jobs sent overseas? It's set up that way. Our owned media influences each demographic to think in a way that benefits the very top.

The Tea Party set will kick the dogs below them, while the ones on top will make out like bandits! They have been fully indoctrinated into the belief that the poor are lessers, and deserving of their ill economic fate and lazy. Are there lazy people? Sure there are, but in a country with unemployment and underemployment is at the levels they are at, the picture is far bigger.

Trust me, even if a person had a good job before, and lost it and fell down the ladder, these types will cut you no break. Pompous and prideful in their place, they don't even want to imagine that they too one day could be in the same position. They will blather to us about their work ethic and how hard they worked as the economy implodes around them.

Wasn't the original Tea Party about freedom? These folks sure aren't.--The Squawker

So Much Debt!

Regarding my last post, notice he is now in the place where he has to say PLEASE GIVE ME A JOB! What if the bean counters say NO? The colleges are busy teaching underwater basket weaving and theory rather then any actual SKILLS. Remind your young people they need to be able to sell a skill that no one else can do where there is actually DOING not just theory and putting those things into practice!---The Squawker

Throwaway People

Throwaway People

We have too many in this society.

What does one do in a society where you are told YOU DO NOT BELONG and ARE NOT ALLOWED TO MAKE A LIVING for the most minute of differences? I faced this when I got sick, said illness denied me high paid enough, sustainable employment which made the health problems worse. I have seen so many talented people set aside via the bean counters. It's a travesty. Right now we have a growing underclass of all kinds where they know they do not belong.

Sure, I am disabled myself, but I am thinking of past days, where one wanted a community to have some loyalty and you were willing to give the same loyalty back. Where has that gone? If you are a little different, too smart, too slow, too old, too young, not conformist enough, not thin enough, not mainstream enough, today they don't seem to want you. I suppose some of us become experts at finding outside niches but I wonder at a society where it seems that out there only a growing number of people are being deemed "acceptable" for employment. Sure, they will make the "everyone needs education" claims, but we have the most educated society ever, no what is happening is a new class structure where only those who are already well heeled, connected and have the right looks and attitudes need apply. The "owning class" [see below] is tossing the rest out the door.

Both I and the Reckoner have pondered the reality of how many soul-less minions behind desks have determined our reality with the very economic foundations of our lives determined based upon their whims.

The other day I saw this quote:

"The problem is not work. Work is FUN when you do it for yourself. Work can be rewarding and you feel proud of your accomplishment. Nothing feels better than taking a well deserved bath after a day of hard work and then eating a comforting supper.
No, the problem is employment and job hunting. There is no dignity for the worker and job seeker in the process. Work has been hijacked by the owning class and has been rebranded as “employment”. They are not job creators, they are work usurpators.
If the capitalists, the owners and the rulers were not in the way, anybody could immediately pull themselves up by their own bootstraps. The fact that you need to be hired before you can do any kind of productive work is the problem that must be ended. Nobody should have to sell himself or herself before he or she can contribute to society."  

One thing I ponder is how much human potential is being thrown out the door, as these employers tell endless lines of people they are not a good fit. Some may contribute via writing or volunteer work and unpaid activities, but how many are being denied decent livings out there, because of the blockades put in their way? When did human beings become mere commodities?

I find the whole hiring process to be more about weeding people out rather then finding the "best"or allowing people to contribute. The other day I was talking about this with a friend when people lived in communities lifelong and when there were family and other long-term ties; things were far different, in terms of business decisions. One's community was taken into account, the extreme "free market" types will never discuss how those farmers they praised for so much self-reliance, worked together to raise barns and more. People worked together, and I am not talking about the controls of Communism but SPONTANEOUS relationships and interactions, ones formed by God's creation not directed from above....

I tend to think people were seen even differently. It wasn't all about fitting in and SELLING yourself to those who may NOT BUY. It was about being alive and being part of a community.--The Squawker

The Same as Bush Really

Both parties, as I have said before, are teamed together for tyranny, globalism and the destruction of the US economy.....

Hmmm: Nixon wiretaps an office and gets removed from office--forced to resign.

Obama wiretaps an entire nation and it's business as usual. Well, Bush started the trend....

See where this is going? Perhaps they want you to know they are listening so more will be afraid and will be silent--The Squawker
