What We Don't Know Hurts

What we don't know about Corporatism's push back against our economic recovery hurts us with potential internal combustion from the top heavyweight of those who define success by how many "Muppets" they can fool most of the time. Siding with Cain against the 99 percent, they profane The Good Samaritan: we are at our best when we are the keepers of our brothers and sisters -- not their jailers, pill pushers, financial oppressors or community watch murderers.

"With malice toward none, with charity for all," evaporating like steam from the frog-inhabited simmering pot, guess who's coming to dinner: Corporate hunger games! As for those still lulled by pretend patriotism faking the way we were, failing to sense our transformation into "fat, lazy and stupid" 99 percent slaves, you are dessert.

"Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me."

Who dines best because of our addictive diets causing epidemic illnesses from stress and overweight? Why, sellers of prescription drugs, pushing doctors to push pills in a non-healing cycle that links at the HIPPA with Goliath Health Insurance Companies like WellPoint and Blue Cross Blue Shield. Bullying of all kinds belies. "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but prescriptions will never hurt me."

"You get what you pay for" has ballooned through wining and dining AMA white coats, whose numbers are limited by government of, by and for the Corporations, to limit competition, keep medical fees artificially high and insurance premiums lucratively guaranteed, in this reign of unabashed, unrepentant and largely unprosecuted corporate resurrection of the age of "Robber Barons."

"If a mind is a terrible thing to waste," why are education budgets the first to be cut? Who benefits most from the failure of our children to write an intelligent sentence beyond 140 characters or make change without computer assistance? Who wins when we are demoralized by under-employment and under water mortgages? "The Bible tells me so:" the money changers of Wall Street, like Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, and Wells Fargo.

Banksta immorality nurses on the inequity of our tax code, allowing exemptions for those with the most at the expense of the least of these my brethren, and the merging of Banks/Corporations and government decapitates democracy.

"Corporate Boards are the problem," aided and abetted by politicians like Scott Walker and a Congress willingly selling its soul, pledging to the flag of "firmness in the Right as Gold gives us to see the Right." Let us Rush to shake off our feet, the dust of billionaire extremists in the electoral process that Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe and all the women left out of our history books built.

Corporatism is not Americanism. It is the product of self-serving multinational houses of greed, with an extreme right wing agenda descending from Cain to Vaginal Probes. "Volt," like Tucker and the Electric Car before it, now maneuvers through the habitual Koch head self-preservation tactics -- from Marie Antoinette through Hoover to Romney's "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt."

Did you know that before the Supreme Court was the benefactor of corporate personhood, it was a court that supported regulation of insurance companies under the Constitution's Commerce Clause until insurance lobbyists convinced Congress to pass the 1945 McCarran-Ferguson Act , which to this day exempts insurance companies from anti-trust laws?

Do you know why the findings of a McCormack-Dickstein House Committee on Un-American Activities investigation of a potential coup of FDR's administration by banks and some of the wealthiest and best known corporate family names in "The Land of the Free" is classified?

What we don't know hurts US.
