This was originally an editorial opinion about the Bush Administration budget published here in 2006. But tell me, isn't the Obama Adminstration budget exactly the same?

That the majority of the world's people are poor is not an accident. It is a very deliberately designed plan to keep the "First", or Western, World's foot on the neck of the "Third" World in order to take everyone's piece of the cake and serve it up to the very few on the tippy top of the economic pyramid. And it's disgusting.

The financial "elite" in the U.S. are in the process of using the financial "crisis" they created to commit financial genocide. WAKE UP!!
SHARE Saturday, June 13, 2009 The Car Czar's plan to gut America's autoworkers
Here it is, a perfect cameo of the living standards here in the U.S. of A., the truly classless society. Obama's $600 million dollar man is demanding a pound of eyes and teeth from U.S. autoworkers.

It seems there's no way out of the slave system of capitalism. You will either be chattel, owned outright, wage-slaves who recycle the Masters' money to them, or debt-slaves who will enrich the Masters via compound interest and made-up fees. Money for nothing. Not a lick of work. What's wrong with this picture?

Isn't doing the same thing over and over again Einstein's definiton of insanity? Isn't denial more than a river in Egypt? How mentally-challenged are we to keep biting off the same piece of bull that we have had repeatedly demonstrated to us that we can't chew?

As we remember our fallen soldiers this Memorial Day, let's remember how America chooses to treat them. For all they are asked to do, when they pay "the ultimate price," they might as well be M.I.A. as far as our government is concerned.

Intelligence is a piano. And ours is out of tune. It takes practice to use it for the purpose for which it was intended. Our practice has been hijacked by consumerism and our deliberate thought all but cancelled via indoctrination. We need a LOT of piano tuners! Won't you join us?
