Pigmen Win Again

“The real owners are the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians, they’re an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the statehouses, the city halls. They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all of the news and information you hear. They’ve got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, ­ lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else.”  - George Carlin

After the disgusting example of politicians of both spineless parties bowing down before Wall Street, the military industrial complex and corporate interests this weekend with the passage of a bloated pig of a spending bill totaling $1.1 trillion, how can anyone not on the payroll of the vested interests not admit there is only one party – and it serves only the needs of the wealthy business interests.

Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered... That phrase is meant to be a warning for those tho tend to get too greedy at the wrong time. Those who work hard will get what they deserve, but those who try to gain something for nothing will not get very far unless they've got the "law" on their side. Are you seeing the pattern yet? Do you understand how the shell game keeps going? If you read that article and still believe in political party difference, there's not much else I can do for you and there isn't much you'll ever do for me besides prolong my head scratching and amazement as to why people are so incredibly hard headed when it comes to waking up and seeing the system for what it is. I woke up a long time ago...
