‘The BIG One’

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 11:46 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sun dripped, cool, very breezy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this glorious Sunday morning here at the Hyannis/Hyannis Port Waterfront(s)–the Fourth Day of October, 2015–another great day to be alive! What else can one say on a day such as this?  Although if one were to tune in on the old TV machine (credit Rachel Maddow of “TRMS“, on MSNBC, OK?), on any given Sunday, one would find the boring, exhausting, mind numbing, controlled, painfully advertised with said relievers of PAIN, scripted, predictable, un-informing, biased, fear based, scarcity based, oil based, corporate based, never ending talk shows that bring one down to the level of wanting to overdose on a vat of single malt scotch, Ambien or perhaps graduating to some fine CIA crack cocaine…, yes, one would find said ‘talk’ shows providing the echo in a chamber that no one is listening to in the first place.

I don’t know Greg, your the judge around here!

Michael Moore, the ‘infamous’ documentary film maker who (again), made headlines when he wrote the book, “Downsize This”–the real life horror story of what was happening to the middle class and working poor in this nation–has not made a movie in a little while, but his original message about Flint, Michigan and the dying auto industry in and around Detroit has, unlike that city, not died.  What is really going on with the typical American worker that politicians’ speak of so often when attempting to get elected into public office, speaking of ever creating ‘new jobs’, oh, and do you speak Mandarine Chinese?

Corporations began leaving the U.S. en masse during the 80’s and 90’s, bleeding into this young 21st century, and they will not be coming back any time soon, at least not when the only duty a group of people at  the top have to this country it seems is to fleece it as best they can before dropping it off in a poisoned fracking fluid ditch.  Leaving a gaping hole that is now represented by this GRAND CANYON gap between those who live on Park Avenue and those who live in any street Centralia, PA.  A nice quiet town where the good folks got the shaft when “Pay Day” candy bars decided to pay workers in Mexico instead of them, pay them far less money to produce the very tasty treat   Many studies suggest that a loss in a job is much like a death in the family, and with no job prospects out there, alcoholism, domestic abuse, divorce, suicide, poor health in general, all of those things sky rocket, as property values diminish and all of the remaining businesses dry up.  Including the Walmart, who can’t sell any of the (sweat shop created), cheap crap that ran all the mom and pop stores into the ground in the first place, ’cause those poor folks who are starving and possibly living in their car, will most likely not be in the market for a plastic truck for their kid this Christmas, a toy whose ‘cost’ at it’s fine, ‘upstanding’, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, ‘factory store’ in China was precisely 18 cents to create, and then of course, ‘in the American way’?, selling it back to the now cash poor citizens of Centralia for $14.95, all while paying it’s overall, hourly, 28 hours a week (considered “full-time” work), work force a non living wage of 7 bucks an hour.

‘Something is rotten in the state of Denmark…’

Published in the mid-90’s, the work centered on the FACT we all know now to be normal, and look at that Dow go!, the new and improved, you know, for your 401(k) shell game, ‘business as usual’, i.e. jobs being shipped overseas so the massive corporate conglomerates can make more and more MONEY for their ’stockholder’ to whom they have a fiduciary “responsibility”, just as it was written in U.S. Constitution?  I’m sure I mean corporate charter.  The glaring reality being that those who own most if not all of the stock are those who OWN the company to begin with, and therefore, it would stand to reason that they and they alone, will stand to make the most of the soaring profit therein.  Concentrated wealth mankind has not seen since the days of Julius Caesar.

Michael exposed this fact (”…today, now more than ever!”), to adoring fans all over the country in a book tour in that year of 1997, an actual book tour, with him giving lectures, comedy acts, interviews, all while secretly filming (to keep “Borders’ Books” off his back), with unbelievable footage of him stepping into the Lion’s Den, i.e. Procter and Gamble, the evil overlords of “Pay Day” candy bars, naming it, ‘The Big One’.

His message was heard loud and clear.  Both those who hate him, and especially to those who Love him! The reality of ‘downsizing’ companies.  Ruined LIVES. A trend becoming EPIC.  With the top 10 percent of ‘earners’ (an old mob term), in the US possessing 76% of the pie.  And now you have presidential hopefuls like Donald Trump touting just what the Illuminate wish for, a tax plan that would not only bankrupt the country, but leave the top 1% taking home 21% more every year, with the bottom 90% (Wal-Mart employees), taking in 1% more.  Upside down, resulting in down and out…

When George W. Bush took office in 2000, it was his turn to do the Master’s bidding.  First off, cut taxes for the rich, and that is exactly what happened.  In 2001 and in 2003, ‘W’ slashed them taxes by gosh, by golly! For all the Park Avenue types, for guys like David Koch and his brother to the tune of 1.4 Trillion added to the national debt.  Monies owned to the banking cartel.  Get the picture?

Add to that the two disastrous wars that fed the military industrial complex, warned of by then U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1960, but bankrupted the country ever further, to the tune of 4.1 Trillion.  And then the sweet deal with big pharma, another 1 Trillion, add in all the other corporate subsidies that corporations get year in and year out, in 2006 92 billion went out to those poor corporations, with social programs designed to help real, live people, our brothers and sisters, half that, yeah, can you SEA where this is headed?

These corporations have taken over many sectors of this government, by way of proxy, by way of lobby rather, thus, have roped what could have been good, decent law makers into sniveling dogs for money.  For with the advent of “Citizens United” in 2010, there is no honor in this profession any longer, save a guy like Bernie! A 30 second spot could wipe you out, especially if it is played over and over again on that “TV machine” or on the many other, countless, electronic distractions, i.e. one’s “mobile device”, and with the modern Madison Avenue wizard blasting that crack like noise, light and radiation into one’s brain 24/7, any psychologist or shaman worth his or her salt would tell you that easily manipulated masses tend to be fascinated with bright, shiny objects, preferably loud, plutocratic, and patronizing, parental figures who don’t make much sense, but hate the same people you do…

Like our pal and all round good guy, Donald, “…they love me out here in the sticks, who knew? I’ll be here all week folks, please don’t forget to tip your waitresses, they work hard for their money, I’m telling you’, I…” Trump, who is keeping it real by keeping the circus energized, at least until another good stiff wind from the North via the coming storm, lifts that tent skyward, high, high into the air, where one may finally discover just how that blue bird got over that ‘dang rainbow.

Have a nice Sunday everybody!
