OK, ABC and Disney, Hollywood, Pepsi,the Democratic Party, MSNBC, CNN, Fox, the other two nets, every newspaper in the country, and anyone who advertises in them or on TV, medical insurance, auto insurance, insurance insurance. It all stinks like fish gurry. That’s what we’re being fed, and we think it’s filet mignon.
Are we really that stupid? Have we really been such lousy pushovers? Is it really the truth; that these guys have figured out that all we are is a bunch of stomachs, sexual organs and fat butts? Seems like it.
No you say? Prove it.
Don’t give them any of your time, and don’t spend any of your money on them.
Did I leave out anything? Oh, yeah, the cable and satellite companies that carry alla that garbage into your home. Stop it all. Cut it all out, the noise, the flash, the bling, the fly, the whatever the hell they come with next to make us forget that this is all a big swindle.
That’s gonna leave many of us with a lot of loose change and an awful lot of time on our hands. Try reading a book. Try reading a good book. Take a walk. Actually have a conversation about something other than baseball or your nails and hair. Put the money in a shoe box or a bank and forget about it.
Hey! Here’s an idea. Why not spend the time saying a prayer for the state of the world, these Untied States and our own poor selves. And, another idea just occurred to my mind. Why not use some of that new found money to help some folks; like folks with time on their hands because they have no work to do. Or, folks with time on their hands because they never had any work to do, or because they can’t work…or hungry folks…or sick folks. You know?
And, if or when the suits in the big buildings wake up and find everyone’s left the room, and they come outside and say, “Hey! OK, we screwed up. Sorry. Come on back.” And their hands are out in supplication, and they’re smiling pleadingly, why not everyone say, “Nah, find another sucker.” And, try finding an honest job while you’re at it.
‘Cause you know what all of this is, don’t you? It’s “Bread and Circuses”, where the Big Deals figure out how to keep the lid on, keep the schmucks (that’s you Mr. and Mrs. America) happy so they never figure out how lousy life is; they never figure out that they are owned, bought and paid for in the greatest swindle since the original Bread and Circus deal back there in Rome. Did you see the movie Matrix? You’re in it. I’m in it.
We’re all in it.
