Here Are 3 Tyrannical Elements Still Tyrannizing America
Fourth of July snuck up on me. To think it’s actually today. Well, apparently it is today. Today is celebrated as America gained its independence from Spain. I mean, from the Kingdom of Great Britain, 234 years ago. Suddenly, or not so suddenly, America was footloose and fancy free.
Free from Tyranny and with a new lease on life, the deep crimson flow of American blood pulsed strong in a nation that would plow ahead into unchartered territory of Success and Prosperity.
Except one thing. Smaller, more insidious tyrannies cropped up and hindered the growth of America’s valued citizens. So, as an American, I say, we defeated the formidable Kingdom of Great Britain and gained our Independence, but here are 3 tyrannical entities from which we need to gain Independence. (And I capitalize the ‘I’ in Independence because it’s just so darned important)
This is no shock. And the Brits pop up again. No surprise. They’ve infiltrated America through other means than red coats and constipated war tactics. They’ve managed to destroy the Dirty South, make the Gulf look like the dark roast at Starbucks, which then effects the entire nation, and have managed to come away mostly unscathed.
You don’t think so? Read one instance of BP calling the shots.
In the words of Gloucester in Henry VI, part III, “Or hew my way out with a bloody axe” (Act III, scene ii). That’s what America needs to do-hew its way out of BP’s disgusting, oily grip-and that would be more extreme than anything Barack Obama has done to the misfits at British Petroleum. It looks, so far, that he’s rather enjoying his oily massage from British Petroleum.
Goldman Sachs amp; Friends will have you believe Wall Street is the lifeblood of America, from where prosperity for all Americans flows. That’s a lie. Wall Street is, indeed, a large black hole where numbers, representing your actual dollars, disappear. That’s a simple criticism, and there is much more going on, but Americans are simple, and mainstream journalism is simple.
If you didn’t know it, there’s a throne in the Goldman Sachs building. It’s a tall throne, and usually Lloyd Blankfein sits atop it, with a golden scepter. Real cliché stuff, I know, but that’s how they get off.
In fact, Blankfein has been placed there by God. No joke.
If you want to visit Goldman Sachs, see the throne, I’m sure they will be more than happy to show you around, especially since they built their very gorgeous building, with the precious throne, largely from your tax dollars.
Here’s their address, go see them: 200 West Street, New York, New York.
The funny aspect of America is that it relies on jobs. Especially manufacturing jobs, where millions of people can go to work, screw the doodad on the widget for eight hours, five days a week, and make a decent living.
Thanks to mega-corporations like Wal-Mart, and hundreds of others, that is no longer an option for Americans. The manufacturing days are over, the jobs sent overseas for little children to make pennies each day, rather than paying Americans a living wage. Make sense? Yes, it’s good business practice, and Wal-Mart is the biggest offender.
Wal-Mart has cheap shit (to use a colloquialism that America likes). They also sent the life force of this country overseas.
Where’s Gloucester and his bloody axe? Because we need it, now! And, by and large, happy Independence Day, America!
