Corporate Punishment

And now, brought to you by your personal reality manufacturers, Recession! Enjoy.  It's for your own good.  You will thank us later.

In our never ending obsession with manipulating your lives, we have decided that you just don't appreciate when we give you quite enough. You ungrateful subjects of our empire squawk and wail at the slightest little things we require of you. Your endless prattling on about Democracy, having a say, having your representatives in Government not work for you and being cheated out of all that you've earned has finally gotten on our nerves. So it's time to jerk your chains a little.

It's time to readjust your sense of gratitude for the easy life we give you. So recession it is and just to drive home the point of who's boss, we're going to blatantly rig this next election. We're going to allow some ringers in from both parties who will say exactly what it is you really want, let you go to the polls and vote for them, and then right on our TV, tell you that they lost. And the best part, there's not a thing you can do about it.

Setting up the Recession was easy since we control the money supply, energy markets and the stock markets. To get it started all we had to do was start a run on Real Estate and your own greed caused many of you to rush in hoping to get a piece of that easy free money. Of course, without our continued money the bottom dropped right out of it, the bubble burst. Hey stupids, it was a classic bunko, we show it to you on TV all the time, yet in the real world you act as if you don't know what it is. So you suckers fell for it hook, line and sinker.
This is why you will never rule your own life, much less the world. You lose your heads over the same things you accuse us, the Corporates, of. Except of course, we control the game and have no need for greed.  We already own it all. Geez, this is too easy.

You will just  accept your Corporate punishment. Corporate punishment is a pun on corporal punishment. Except we won't really beat on you with a stick.  We'll just beat on your numb, no thinking brains with riddles, contradictions, out right lies and just for that extra zing, we'll inflate the value right out of your hard earned dollar. Your silly precious dollar, you have yet to figure out that we can print up just as many dollars as we want.
We love watching you slaves whine. There you go whining over all these illusions we feed you 24/7/365. Well, 366 this year.
Yes, the recession is really created by simply telling you there's a recession. You will stop your economic activity all on your own driven by your fear and typical short sightedness.
But what about the dollar you ask, isn't that real? It's as real as you believe it is.  Look at it, it's nothing but a silly piece of paper, but you will virtually do anything for a few of them. Pathetic, we laugh about that all the time.

So pray to your GOD for help in this economic calamity. Go on, that's what we invented your GOD for, so you can blame GOD instead of us, your personal reality manufacturers, affectionately known in this age as your Corporate-Banking elites. Except you don't even recognize or admit that we're really here or able to do all these smoke and mirror tricks on you.
Your ignorance is only exceeded by your ability to live in denial. We will even tell you straight up that your willing suspended disbelief is off the charts. That's right, you will believe anything.   
Please don't worry about us, our lives won't miss a beat in all this recession and endless WAR. Besides, it's true, you'll thank us later.  No, on second thought, you will never give us a second thought.
