THE TERRORISTS OF WALL STREET
BIG FINANCE HOLDS A GOLDEN GUN TO AMERICA'S HEAD OF STATE
OBAMA CHICKENS OUT IN RUSSIAN ROULETTE
"Give Us Your Money Unconditionally Or We'll KILL Your Economy!!!"
Union contracts affecting millions can be shredded, ignored or rewritten without any difficulty. A few individual Wall Street executives' contracts cannot be touched. The union workers did no wrong. But they're getting screwed anyway. The Wall Streeters wrecked the economy while stealing billions. And now you and I are going to pay them billions more in bonuses for committing those crimes. Why?
Why? What are you, stupid? It's capitalism, baby! Free enterprise! This ain't no freakin' workers' paradise, you tool! What did you THINK that meant? Did you think you were one of the winners? BWAHAWHAHAHAH!!! Were you born with a membership in an exclusive country club? A seat on the New York Stock Exchange or the Chicago Board of Trade? An ancestor in the White House or the Senate? No? Well, then, you're nobody, nothing, nowhere, man. This game isn't being played for you. It's being played ON you.
See, the autoworkers and their sweaty ilk have no choice but to allow the abrogation of their own contracts. It's either that or die, financially. The whole industry could vanish overnight in this country, and all those working stiffs could then be homeless in a matter of weeks. That's the system they worked and fought and died for over the years, in the factories and in the many many wars of empire. That's the system they are going to have to pay for now. They're willing to do it because they see the need, and they care about our country, and their way of life, which they would lose by not giving in to this extortion. They're doing it because they have no choice. They're Americans [Read: "SUCKERS"].
Wall Street, on the other hand, already has enough of our money to pull up stakes and move to China or Brazil or Timbuktu and start a new economic empire there. Or, they could just sit it out, picking up big bloody chunks of what's left of this country for pennies on the dollar, after they pull their own moneylending temples down around them. It's win-win for them. If the American taxpayer doesn't give them everything they want, they just finish destroying the economy, and scarf up the pieces. Unlike the millions of blue-collar workers, Wall Streeters have the leverage to destroy the whole country, and still benefit by it. But their very, very good friends in Washington would never call them on that. They don't have the balls. And it would be rude for our "leaders" to speak to their corporate masters in such disrespectful tones.
See, the go-along to get along crowd in DC has been helping corporations take over the country for years now, shaping and reshaping our laws and institutions to serve corporate interests, not citizens'. In exchange, our glorious figureheads never had to work at a real job or worry about money, except at campaign time, when they had to bust their asses just kissing corporate sh*tholes. That's how the system really works, schmuck. You thought it was working for you, because you were so enmeshed in it. And you thought, "Oh, well, I got a house and a car out of it. My kids get to go to college. I have health insurance at work. I'll be able to retire at 50 or 60. It's a wonderful life." But now your job looks a little shaky. You may not be able to make your house and car payments much longer. If you lose your job, you'll lose your health insurance. You may even have to pull the kids out of college. There goes their middle-class status. And retirement? Well, that's already gone. It's almost as if you were what some people used to call a "n*gger." You know, a second-class citizen. A completely powerless person. A slave, a serf, a peasant, a bum. Poor, homeless, unemployed. How could this have happened to a nice "middle-class" white boy or girl like you? You, a veteran, a taxpayer, a property-owner, a person with a job or a business? A WHITE GUY!!!
What you failed to realize all along was that, if you weren't born with that membership in the exclusive country club, etc, you were a "n*gger." You were fooled by your own skin color. You came to believe your own bullsh*t: That you were the Master or Mistress of all that junk that you owe so much money on; and that it all made you SOMEBODY. Well, how's that workin' out for ya?
There was still time to reverse all this, last year. Back in November, maybe you thought you did reverse all this. But then your buddy Obama started appointing Bushies and Clintonistas, Wall Streeters and torturers to all of his highest posts. Still, you didn't catch on. You were still thinking that you mattered, somehow; that your vote had actually counted for something; all we had to do was be patient and trust in big O and wait, Change was coming. How's that "change" workin' out for ya?
This year we're all faced with another kind of change, and a much starker set of choices. We can eat corporate sh*t, or we can revolt. I mean, we obviously don't have the balls to pick up a gun and slaughter our way down Wall Street or up Capitol Hill. That would be wrong. That would be un-American. We would, could and should never do that. If only because our own military and police forces would cut us down without mercy, using bullets we paid for. So our corporate masters and their tame talking heads in the media and in the government all know that they can pretty much do anything they want to us. We're their bitches. Unless we rise up peacefully and just stop supporting them. Stop working, consuming, tax-paying, voting, serving in the military, going to school, playing their game. National strike, that's one thing we could do. Bring the game to a grinding halt. But who's going to organize that? And who's going to participate?
Because, you know, we never participate in anything. We don't go to meetings or run for office or organize movements. We just passively sit and wait for somebody else to do everything for us. And that's what we're doing now. Instead of picking up a gun or an axe or a scythe like some third-world peasants, instead of shutting down the country and marching in the streets like citizens of a real democracy, we just sit drooling in front of the daily corporate propaganda show on the tee-vee, and let 'em f*ck our country into submission, and us along with it. Because we don't have the balls to put our own lives and lifestyles on the line. So I guess we deserve to play Russian roulette, and lose. Even if there never was a chance we could win. Suckers.
See, the French shut down their country when the rich pull this sh*t over there. Back in the day, they even chopped the bastards heads off. That'll get their attention! Bad French! Bad! But the French have real political Parties, Left, Right and Center. They have real unions. They know how to organize and work together, how to take effective action and defend their own interests. Maybe they're not "surrender monkeys" after all. Maybe we are.
