I recently visited the CIA World Fact Book. It had been a while since I’d been around. But if it’s your first day at the Commerce Department. And the boss wants to know about soybean yields in Argentina, that’s where you go to find out. What made me think about it, was a neofascist on Facebook. Just crying his eyes out until near inconsolable, about Joe Biden turning the US into a Socialist country. Will facts alone, be sufficient? Can you even win an argument in this country with just facts anymore?
“In the US, private individuals and business firms make most of the decisions, and the federal and state governments buy needed goods and services predominantly in the private marketplace. US business firms enjoy greater flexibility than their counterparts in Western Europe and Japan in decisions to expand capital plant, to lay off surplus workers, and to develop new products. At the same time, businesses face higher barriers to enter their rivals’ home markets than foreign firms face entering US markets.” – CIA World Fact Book
Now, for those of you with reading comprehension difficulties, I’ll paraphrase…not Socialist. Less Socialist than Western Europe, less Socialist than Japan. Private individuals and business firms make most of the decisions. And you thought this was a democracy.
But what does that really mean? It means private individuals and business firms make most of the decisions. Should we raise the minimum wage? Should we repair our crumbling roads and bridges? Should we invest in our public schools? Private individuals and business firms vote “No.” Billions for a Faux News “My Pillow” Advertising, but not a penny for wage increases or healthcare.
Joe Manchin and the neofascists are doing just what the people who put them in office want them to do. Stop at all costs, raising taxes on billionaires. They are private individuals and business firms who don’t give a fat rat’s ass, if this country goes to hell. As long, as it doesn’t affect their bottom line in the next twelve months.
The neofascists in Congress, Aka the billionaire class and toxic energy producers, are fighting over the environment, Infrastructure, and education. While the neofascists worry about China supplanting the US.
“Long-term problems for the US include stagnation of wages for lower-income families, inadequate investment in deteriorating infrastructure, rapidly rising medical and pension costs of an aging population, energy shortages, and sizable current account and budget deficits.” – The CIA World Fact Book
Gee, who would have thunk it? The CIA a bunch of card-carrying lefties who sound just like Joe Biden. Spending their time and our money foisting Liberal propaganda on each other.
Poor people are a drag on our economy. By suppressing wages, the private individuals and business firms. Help themselves personally, while hurting the economy overall. They get a private space program. You get a town full of empty buildings and homeless people. They get fracking wells, and you get a poison water table.
The neofascists have had it in for public education since 1948. That was the year Harry Truman added a desegregation plank into the Democratic Platform. They begged Truman to drop it. He was going to split the Party wide open, and Truman answered, so be it.
The Dixiecrats walked out of that convention never to return and woke, in the morning as Republicans. If you’re gonna go around giving people their civil rights, regardless of the color of their skin and write it down and stuff…we’re outta here!
Then in 1962, the Supreme Court ruled that forced prayer in public school was unconstitutional. Boy, that one pissed them off. Public schools then became dens of iniquity in the neofascists press. We must build Christian schools and home school, so those devil worshippers won’t educate or properly socialize our children.
“College is bad!” Says the Faux News host, who attended an Ivy League school. “They are teaching bad things there! Because they aren’t teaching the things, that I like. “They’s letting the coloreds in and kicking God out!”
“Pride and Prejudice” The neofascists don’t want race theory which are documented facts, taught in public schools. They do want religion (Only their Religion, of course.) taught in schools, despite it being fact free, bigoted, and in some cases, just plain ridiculous. “What’s Noah’s wife’s name again?”
How long would they promote religion today, if God went around dropping food from the sky on hungry people, without any kind of work requirements? Do you think the fast-food industry, would support that kind of God for very long?
They do want you to teach their children about the dangers of illegal drugs, but not the legal ones. And under no circumstances, teach them about the dangers of unprotected, pre-marital non-reproductive sex. See, the neofascists have this book that doesn’t believe in unprotected, pre-marital, non-reproductive sex.
You know, I might not personally believe in airplanes, but the people at the airport do. Book versus biology, “The kids might discover that they are Gay… after reading it in a book first.” (Eureka! This answers everything!) Does this dirty, sex book of yours, teach the children that masturbation and pre-marital sex, will lead them into a burning lake of eternal fire? Or that menstruation is a curse from God on women, for tempting Adam?”
The culture war can best be described as the billionaire’s silent butler. Poison them against themselves, make them dislike each other. Tell them they can’t win, so why bother. Make them dislike public schools, so they don’t raise our taxes to support them. (I’ve got a launch schedule to keep!) Tell them they don’t need college. You do need any roads or Internet, it’s just the big liberals spending your money again! Joe Biden wants to teach preschoolers about butt sex!
Oligarchs and Kings used religion to control the people for a thousand years. But recently have suffered a setback, owing to the big words and hard to pronounce names and obscure references in the Bible. This is the 21st Century and the information society, wants their religion in thirty minutes or less increments. They want the new religion with their own buzz words, “Sheeple” – People who think differently than you do. People not as smart as you. I’ve always said, if you really want to change someone’s mind, insult their intelligence first.
The new religion like the old, teaches the brethren to shun non-believers and teaches them to be loyal and not step outside of the orthodoxy. “Before I let you put a set of tires on the wife’s mini-van. I gotta ask you a very important question. Who did you vote for in the last election? What about them other boys in the shop?”
What did the doctor say?
“Liberals with their big scary words, like cancer and mortality. Did you know that doctor drove a Prius? Only Liberals drive a Prius! You can’t trust them. Right away they start talking about expensive treatments and chemotherapy. But I can see what he’s up to, he’s just another soldier in big Pharma’s army. But I read on the internet, that drinking cough syrup while standing on your head in a wet suit, does the exact same thing. The Liberals don’t want you to know about that…it’s a secret.
Timothy Leary said famously in the 60s, “Turn on, tune in and drop out.” The neofascist religion says, “Tune in, tune out, sleep well and support your local billionaire!” Our top news stories tonight! Joe Biden personally orders gas prices to rise and plans to outlaw Sunday School and take all of your guns away!
