Carved in stone in our Nations Capital

  "These unhappy times call for…plans…that build from the bottom up and not from the top down, that put our faith once more in the forgotten man at the bottom of the economic pyramid."

Industrializations Promise

  "Industrialization united 19th Century America with the promise of more – more money, more goods, more leisure, more possibilities   But it also divided the country. The gulf between the owners and managers of industrial enterprises and the many people who toiled in the factories widened throughout the century. Industrialists and laborers lived and socialized apart. Debates over employee’s rights and manager’s prerogatives turned into bitter struggles that even a shared pride in work and achievement could not lay to rest.
  Industrialization delivered its promise of abundance but it also led to a question that remains with us today: How should the wealth that result from the combined effort of so many be distributed?"

  When a person becomes a new member in the work force they bring little to no experience into the system, they have to be taught, they are carried by the more experienced people. It is hoped that in time these inexperienced newbie’s will learn and be contributing members in the work force, where they too will carry less experienced members of society.
  As we age and our bodies start breaking down, we will not reach as high or move as fast, some will not be able to grasp technological changes that are whizzing all around, does that mean we should toss out the older experienced individuals; we will again have to be carried by those in the middle.
  What happens when those in the middle, the ones society hinges on, don’t want to teach or help those below, or support those who are aged, less stable?
  What happens when life becomes a free-for-all, no one helping anyone else, a dog eat dog situation?
  Civilization decays.
  When people refuse to work together for the betterment of the whole, collapse occurs.
  If you are in the Military the ranks are broken, the lines fold, death occurs.
  If you are a Wall Street Mogul, people are treated with indifference, just another commodity, companies are bought, sold, exported to maximize profits, the ranks are broken, lines fold, death occurs.

  "History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance."
President James Madison

  In the early 1900’s after World War I the banking establishment had its foot on the throat of the German people, financially strangling the country; Hitler {make no mistake what Hitler did in starting World War II and the subsequence slaughtering of millions was evil} gave the people hope, a chance to rebuild.
  Never forget the roll that the banking establishment had in creating the environment that allowed Hitler to rise to power.

  "You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the Eternal God, I will rout you out... If people only understood the rank injustice of the money and banking system, there would be a revolution by morning."
President Andrew Jackson

  It would appear that Wall Street has declared economic warfare against the people of the United States of America and the Founding Fathers idea of “common good”.
  The term "common good" has now been demonized; how can having all people, rich and poor contributing to make a stronger society and country be wrong.

  Wall Street plunders and pillages, perverting justice, using a pen, the legal system and their millions and billions actively lobbing to change the laws of the land and the Constitution, the rest of us be damned. There appears to be little regard for the number of jobless and homeless left in their wake.
  Too many people on Wall Street are acting like kids playing a game of Masters of the Universe and treat the financial system as a game of Monopoly.
  The Trickle Down theory of economics does not work. The reason being, nobody bothered to account for that most basic of human nature, greed.
  Most people when left to their basic instincts are greedy and have to be taught to share, the only way to stop greed in a capitalistic society is to tax those who refuse to share. Is there anybody really worth a billion dollars a year? Is there anyone worth 100 million dollars a year? Is there anyone worth 10 million dollars a year? NO, NO, and NO.
  I found long ago everyone is expendable, everyone is replaceable; if confused, graveyards the world over are filled with irreplaceable and unexpendable individuals.

  From 1940 through 1963 the highest tax rate was over 80 percent going as high as 94 percent. Wealthy people and the children of wealthy people rarely go to war; President Bush sent troops to two unfunded wars. Usually one group is sent to war, the moneyed class pays for the war and the collateral damage caused by war.

parasite: a plant or animal living in, with, or on another organism usually to its harm:
parasite; noun: a person who is supported or seeks support from another without making an adequate return <The Hedge Fund lived as a parasite off the labor of others and also bled the employee’s pensions dry>
host: an animal, plant or company on or in which a parasite lives; Sears and K Mart were the host, Hedge Fund ESL Investments, which is owned by Edward Lampert, is the parasite; JC Penny’s was the host, Pershing Square Capital owned by Ackman is the parasite; Soros Fund Management adviser for the Quantum Group of Funds is the parasite, and according to Wikipedia dam near everbody else is a host.

WALL STREET & HEDGE FUNDS ARE PARASITES
THEY PRODUCE ONLY
INDEBTEDNESS FOR OTHERS

  Wall Street only cares about money. Is one person running a hedge fund really worth $3.4 billion a year; that is more than 70,000 enlisted personnel are paid serving in the U.S. Military for a year.
  The men and women coming back from all of our foreign skirmishes -- Iraq and Afghanistan being the latest ones -- should have a chance at a decent job and the ability to make a decent wage.
  How many people have to go to bed hungry and cold because of American Hedge Fund Gamblers before we wake up; American money grubbers only build resentment of the United States.

Everybody likes good clean drinking water.
You don’t want to drink water from a well that somebody has pissed in.
Exploiting others for financial gain (greed) is pissing in the well.
Other people suffered while Wall Street and the Bankers
Pissed in the well and played their game
Masters of the Universe

Long ago Thomas Jefferson wrote
  “I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. If we run into such debt, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and in our comforts, in our labor and in our amusements. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.”

  All to often at the intersection of Power, Control & Greed are abuses of Religion, Politics, Sex & Money

  The groups that really confuse me are the Religious Right Christian groups that embrace the Republican Party, which loaded us with this perpetual debt in the first place.
  Yes, I get it. Many of the people involved with the Democratic Party are amoral (rabid supporters of the LGBT and abortion).  
  There is a book, and one has to wonder if the LGBT crowd has read this book, (one can only wonder about the Religious Right crowd also) the older version lists Homosexuality as an Abomination the newer version just lists it as Detestable.
  A poster that was popular in the 70’s was titled The Last Great Act of Defiance; it depicted a Mouse flipping off an Eagle as the eagle was swooping in to take the mouse out.
  Legalizing what is deemed as detestable or an abomination would appear as a thumbing of ones’ nose at God (the Mice flipping off the Eagle) and that never really struck me as much of an intelligent move.
  The problem with many involved in the Republican leadership and financial supporters is they are immoral (virulent supports of P.A.C.’s funded by Church Organizations are so Pro Hedge Fund, Pro Corporation, pro war mongers [Henry Kissinger Military personnel as stupid animals...], pro Neo-cons & Anti-worker I am amazed any blue-collar workers still go to your churches). The National Debt is where it is today because of the GOP’s (Greedy Ol People’s) love of money.
  The major reason the people abandoned the Catholic Church was that Priests where raping boys, the reason that people are abandoning Fundamentalist Churches are that they have thrown the working class under the bus.

  If Gods Own Party, which claims the moral high ground, has read the Bible and what it says about debt, then still forced this country into debt because “President Reagan proved that deficits don't matter” according to Vice President Cheney; that is immoral, and the unintended consequences for our children and grandchildren rests with the Republican Party.
  President Nixon took the United States off the gold standard in 1971, Republican President Reagan instigated Strategic deficits to cut programs and Republican Bush started 2 wars (Afghanistan & Iraq) using the National Credit Card while also cutting taxes.
  This financial nightmare is a gift from the Republican Party to We the Little People.
  Most of the people of the United States (approximately 70% of us) could be looked upon as the Sensible Center, but, what is ripping U.S. apart is both of the political parties have been hijacked by the fringes on the ends. The Democrats appears to have been hijacked by the LGBT (lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders) along with the ACLU (Anti-Christian Legal Union), while the Neo-Cons appear to have used the religious self righteous to hijacked the Republican party.
  One has to wonder if the people who refer to themselves as Republicans really want to be known as warmongering, Greedy Ol People. It’s been stated again, most recently by the crowd that refers to itself as God's Own Party, you are either with us or against us. Well it is clear to me how civil wars get started. I am continually amazed at how tightly the Religious-Right embraces some serious hypocrites. I understand that people make mistakes, nobody’s perfect, but come-on, when individuals or groups are wallowing in hypocrisy it is difficult to believe what they say or do.

  All new meaning to the phrase Gods Own Party of Greedy Old People (I have been to Church; I find the actions of these people to be utterly disgusting)

Lets get the blame right

  Many years ago this country honored a humble man, there is an impressive monument in Alexandria Va. to him and also one in D.C. less then 10 miles away.
 
At the end of his second term in office he gave a farewell speech warning against the dangers of Political Parties, Political Potentates, The Dangers of Debt, the dangers of allowing other countries to manipulate the U.S. because of “friendships” and treaties.

His likeness is on the Quarter and graces the one dollar bill.

Alter of Greed

  Elephants (Republicans) & Neo-Cons got their wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (The Lie Needed to Start a War) with that debt added to the National credit card. Will they reinstate the draft so that everybody’s children rich and poor alike have a chance of seeing war up close and personal?  Will the Elephants be like the Neo-Cons whose actions suggest war and its aftermath is for other people’s children?  Will they take care of the collateral damage (WAR IS HELL) or just continue kicking the Veterans and others, Vietnamese children and the effects of Agent Orange to the curb.

It always eventually boils down to the money:
Why American Service Personnel had to Die in Afghanistan

Years back I took an oath, it went like this

  I, _____________________ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

  Over the years since I have taken this oath I come back to the part about support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I have to say the foreign enemies have never worried me like some of the domestic ones mostly lawyers, lobbyist, politicians, banking elite and other power hungry greedy people.

  The Elitists don’t care about We The People. The Rich Elitists have Body-Guards and live in private gated communities with security protection while the rest of us have to take care of ourselves (armed citizens protecting themselves).
  “This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!”
(Adolf Hitler, 1935)
  One can only imagine that a reason for the Rich Elitist Wall Street Billionaires attacking the Second Amendment is they will be viewed little differently than the Nazi’s. When the people figure out that their pension funds have been stolen and Social Security has been plundered due to the greed of Wall Street they will fight back, just as some of the Jewish people came to the understanding of fight or di
e while family and friends were being massacred.
  Very few Jews had guns and ammunition, in the true story Defiance, with Daniel Craig, the Jews had to borrow guns and bullets in order to fight back. My guess would be the rich elitists of Wall Street, having pillaged and plundered the United States while enriching themselves could be cognizant of the blow back heading their way, as the Nazi’s learned. It is difficult to say what will spark the fire that will finally get the sheeple to stand up, but as the Nazi’s demonstrated unarmed masses are easier to control, and it is much easier to squash the 1st Amendment after the 2nd Amendment has been removed
.

  The decline of civility brings about the death of civilization, human life becomes worth so much less; is the Moneyed Mogul or Elitist really worth more than the Veteran.

  What happens when collapse occurs!

  In China the intellectuals were executed.

  In Russia the aristocracy was eliminated.

  The Jews were blamed for the financial collapse of Germany after World War I and therefore purged.

  The French Revolutionaries did not want cake they wanted the heads of those that had made their lives so miserable.

  When collapse occurs death follows.

  The Love of Money and Power kills, greedy people are no different than bullies. When the bully on the playground or in the sandbox refuses to play nice and no one teaches sharing and caring a jerk is turned loose on society.
  Society can not survive when bullies and jerks are left unchecked to traumatize the masses.
  I remember reading that during Hitler’s reign of terror he had a unit that decapitated people and stuck their heads on poles as a form of intimidation (which worked rather well) and what finally put an end to this form of brutality was American Forces hunting the members of said unit and returning the favor by sticking their heads on poles. The bullies in Hitler’s unit did not like seeing their buddies head on a stick and the practice was stopped.
  Wall Street’s greed and the do as I say; I know what is best for you attitude of the Elitist must be stopped or society will again collapse.
  When those in the middle can not, will not or do not help those younger and needing guidance and those older and also needing help and protection from greed and bulling the burden of carrying others is dropped for survival of the fittest. Restoring order is much more difficult when bullies and tyrants are in charge.

  
Will people work together or shall we fall separately. If the bullies and tyrants are not stopped whose head is next on the pole.

Amputations by ax are the tools of terror

As all Veterans should know and hopefully others have learned also
Some days you do the carrying and some days others carry you.
