Mr. John Q. Public's New Clothes

"Edward Bernays was the first person to take Freud's ideas about human beings and use them to manipulate the masses. He showed American corporations for the first time how they could make people want things that they didn't need by linking mass-produced goods to their unconscious desires. Out of this would come a new political idea about how to control the masses. By satisfying people's inner, selfish desires one made them happy and thus docile. It was the start of the all-consuming self which has come to dominate our world today." - The Century of Self part one

The Wall Street media package which led to the $850,000,000,000.00 give-away isn't a surprise to Thimerosal families. Hey, we've been fighting city hall all by ourselves for many years. Just a year or two back, we saw the same sort of government affairs bunko racket swindle $1 billion dollars in the name of Autism.

Don't preach to us about bribes, loose regulations, and no accountability. We've got all that profusely pouring out of our nostrils. $7.1 billion dollars for a bird flu vaccine that one drug company admitted they already had and new legal loopholes created to protect the "bio-terrorism countermeasures" market from any product liability. And not a second's worth of debate ever took place in Congress.

To acknowledge greed and corruption is the root of America's problems is one thing, but to actually find a politician willing to receive a bullet in the back of the head for what's right is another.

It takes moral character and daring to hold the American people in high enough esteem to put an end to white collar welfare racketeering.

Charities are nothing more than the rich man's entitlement and a nice way for politicians to launder the money they cheat and steal. Corporate heads run the charities to dodge taxes and write themselves welfare checks. The humanitarian profiteers are no better than Somali war lords swiping a pallet of corn sacks from hungry villagers.

Sure the corporations cheat. Sure they bribe public officials. Sure they rob from the poor, needy, and disabled and give to the rich. Sure they speak despitefully of the average American citizen.

Lesson number one is Congress and corporations laugh together because they are inseparable. Like gang and ster.

What you get for you tax dollar is a generic web site to spam and the phone number answered by a staffer. You simply can't compete with a corporation cabal that has money to burn in "governmental affairs re-investments". The drug lobby has so much money that there's eight lobbyists for every single member of Congress.

The only positives that will come out the $850B Wall Street looting is perhaps more Americans will wake up to the fact that life as a constantly moving happiness machine is empty, corporations control our lives, and the American spirit is a dead lead.

The corporatists know whatever your beef is with Congress, you'll give up. You simply don't have the time or the money that they have.
