Beck, Boehner, Limbaugh & Monsanto: Love America or leave it!
Once again I've just received yet another e-mail from someone telling me that if I don't like America, then I should leave it. Me? I hardly barely even whine about America at all -- when compared to all the right-wingers and corporatists who haunt the media, the White House, the Supreme Court, Congress and K Street. Those guys REALLY know how to whine!
Take John Boehner for instance. He whines about America constantly. But if he hates this country so much, why doesn't he leave? "Why?" Because if he pulled the same stunts in almost any other civilized country that he has pulled here, he would probably get jailed for corruption -- or even treason. Stop crying all the time, John, and either love America or leave it.
And Glenn Beck? I whine and he doesn't? Yeah right. Send him off to Egypt! Let him keep company with his buddy Hosni Mubarak. Let's see how long he would last in Egypt right now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBuMuzhvYeA
There's a new day of peace and freedom dawning all over the world these days, one wherein everyone gets a slice of the pie -- not just the corporatists and oligarchs and dictators. And when this new dawn comes to America and the uber-rich who have shamelessly plundered our country for decades finally get the boot that they deserve, corporate shills like Beck and Limbaugh are gonna have to fall back on the very same government "safety nets" that they currently decry. And when the average working stiff in America finally gets fed up with doling out corporate welfare, then Wall Street, CitiBank, the Koch brothers and Monsanto aren't gonna save these shills any more and they're gonna end up BEGGING for Social Security, single-payer healthcare and unemployment benefits! Ha.
"Help me, America!" they'll whine. "I can no longer afford payments on my yachts or my Porsche!"
In the end, corporatism is a great leveler and it ultimately levels those fat cats at the top as well as those of us at the bottom. Didn't we learn anything from Bernie Maddoff's sad end? Or even Hitler's? Apparently not.
And Rupert Murdoch needs to be careful of what he is wishing for too. Look what just happened in Tunisia. That could happen to him as well if he doesn't stop whining all the time about salt-of-the-earth types like you, me and us.
After the recent success of non-violent resistance against the apartheid Wall in Palestine, the Arab world seems to be finally wising up and going all Gandhi on its Washington-supported dictators.
If Palin, Angle, Chevron, Wall Street, General Motors, Fox News, Boeing and Diebold keep on whining and moaning about how terrible America's government is -- even though for the most part they own it -- then the kind of revolution that they seem to be trying to stir up here won't be non-violent at all. It will come out of the barrel of a Glock.
And do you really want Beck and Palin fans running around YOUR city locked and loaded? Good grief. Heck no.
So. All you corporatists out there who insist on complaining and whining about MY country all the time? I strongly suggest that you pack up and leave for someplace else ASAP -- that is, if you can find any other country that will take you.
PS: And after all the corporatist whiners have gone, I bet we could make America a really cool place. "But how?" you might ask. The answer to that question is obvious.
Let's start by limiting the amount of money that political candidates can spend on their campaigns. $200,000 max -- or go to jail. And then let's make all those large corporations and rich guys actually start paying income tax like the rest of us. And then let's bring our troops home where they belong. Duh.
