From where and when I left off so hastily interrupted, SAME SHIT continues as previous post subject matter.
I thought today to feature something else.
WHY do we bother HERE to have s-elections??
Aside from political demagoguery, charade, theatre, elections are BIG BUSINESS.
BIG BUSINESS FINANCES US S-elections, BUT, ALSO, s-elections represent a further BONANZA, SUBSIDY, for our crappy CORPORATE SPONSORED COMMERCIAL MEDIA, especially electronic, TV advertising.
Corporate, PRIVATELY OWNED MEDIA, FLOAT their PROFITABLE financial boats on a sea of political advertising.
MY GUESS-ESTIMATE of 5 MILLION $ AVERAGE PER STATE (50 States) FOR ALL SORTS OF S-ELECTIONS amounts to 250 million dollars spent nationally on media, primarily, TV, electronic, coverage.
NOT small change.
And, I assure you MY GUESS-ESTIMATE ABOVE being INTENTIONALLY a VERY, VERY, CONSERVATIVE one.
IF doubled, which easily can be the case, it equals 500 million.
Maybe, closer to a billion, realistically.
The skies the limit, really.
So, expecting our crappy lapdog media to do anything to bite the hand that feeds them being an utterly ridiculous, insane, ludicrous, preposterous, proposition.
Our CORPORATE COMMERCIAL MEDIA and S-ELECTED GOVERNMENT have a symbiotic marriage, an echo chamber effect of spin, lies, legitimacy, pretext, diversion, for their PAYMASTERS.
Whatever determined as official line, story, spin, no matter how absurd it may be, they repeat, parrot, ad nauseam.
In no way does or can our COMMERCIAL MEDIA reflect reality.
Anyone watching, observing, a world TURN THRU A PRISM OF THEIR LENS hopelessly is out to lunch, deluded, lost in a foggy maze, haze, labyrinth.
AND, NOW, FOR OUR LATEST SPECULATIVE BUBBLE:
In case you missed it, absolutely NO correlation between ANY FUNDAMENTALS and stock market price valuations going up, up, and away.
But, hey, folks, WHO CARES when PRIVATELY OWNED MONETARY PRINTING PRESSES exist??
Just print MORE money and shift COLLECTIVE debt burden on to Dis-United Suckers and Assholes backs.
Meanwhile, BELOW, represents FOR SOME, at least, a latest "aha" moment, revelation, discovery, example, scandal, indignation, shenanigans, in yet another amongst so many flavored fixed, rigged, NAZI playbook schemes, same one slaughtering Arabs and others elsewhere while NOT officially recognized as CLASS war BOTH at home and abroad, doing anything nasty to anyone:
Back on local, street levels, trenches, everyone, peons, screwed ALL THE TIME.
Latest local example.
PGW, link below, represents a skeleton local SERVICE operation, middlemen.
ALL Philadelphia City (and elsewhere) gas, energy, natural resource, industries from point of origin to destination, pipelines, delivery systems, etc., ALREADY PRIVATE.
So, might as well finish off job while SUBSIDIZING SAME NAZI FIRMS receiving Federal taxpayer TARP, STIMULUS, ET.AL.!!
Additionally, while BANKRUPTED Philadelphia (and elsewhere) PUBLIC city schools beg, plead, for money, euphemistic PUBLIC-PRIVATE CHARTER school systems expand, having received their Federal STIMULUS taxpayer BONUSES.
Also, their own CITY public pension and other funds INVEST and BORROW heavily FROM same PRIVATE NAZI FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS SCREWING THEM, with whom they lost/lose money in fancy derivatives, swaps, casino capitalism gambling, USURY INTEREST RATES, debt obligations, etc.
Our NAZI partnered labor union WHORES, as usual, do NOTHING except HELP, AID AND ABET ABOVE processes but publicly they posture, blab, about this or that particular issue, altho NOT ones mentioned above.
NEVER do or will you see a labor led, MILITANT, action, strike, coalition, AROUND/AGAINST ANY PRECEDING issues.
AFT (Am Fed of Teachers), former AFT Albert Shanker, ON THE RECORD as AVID proponent, SUPPORTER, FOR PROFIT PUBLIC-PRIVATE CHARTER SCHOOL establishment!!
So, eat it!
Suck it up for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
ONLY for starters.
My list could go indefinitely, including more embryonic SPECULATIVE REAL ESTATE BUBBLES, URBAN REMOVAL, SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE, SOCIAL SECURITY VERSUS PRIVATE PENSION, HEALTH INVESTMENTS, ETC.
ALL variations ON A THEME:
