TABACCO: Let’s assume that everybody in America is at the very least a MILLIONAIRE under CAPITALISM!
Now, who among ye Millionaires will collect the Garbage?
who among ye Millionaires would be a policeman and risk being shot and killed?
who among ye Millionaires would be a Government employee such as Postal Worker?
who among ye Millionaires wants to serve as an Office Clerical at those meager salaries?
who among ye Millionaires wishes to toil as a Factory worker?
who among ye Millionaires longs to be a Retail Store Clerk?
And who among ye Millionaires lusts for a menial job at Burger King, MacDonald’s or Wendy’s?
What, no hands up! Now perhaps you see the Problem! If everyone in Capitalist America were wealthy, the Economic system would come crashing down overnight! Capitalism could not survive if EVERYONE WERE WEALTHY!
Did I forget to mention the Staff at those grand mansions belonging to Multi-millionaires! If you were a Millionaire or Multi-millionaire yourself, you would have no interest in being some other Millionaire’s butler, chauffeur, housemaid, gardener, cook or all-around handyman – now would you. You see, being Filthy Rich in an America where everyone else is also Filthy Rich has few benefits! You may have to cut your own grass because Junior is the son of a Millionaire – fat chance he would stoop so low! And, even if he would do it, you couldn’t afford to pay him what he would want every week he did it!
That Dream, you’ve had since you first learned how to go to the corner store and buy your own candy bar, has now been fulfilled – but it’s a NIGHTMARE! Your Fortune is useless because nobody will supply your Needs – they’re all too Wealthy!
Therefore, the ‘Capitalist Myth’ is not only UNATTAINABLE; but if it were attainable, it would be TOTALLY UNSATISFYING! So what were you thinking!
Likewise Every Player cannot Break the Bank at Atlantic City. Nor can every Player win the Multi-Million Dollar Lottery. The Casino Owners and New York State Lottery would certainly frown upon that! If you should happen to be that 1 in 10,000,000, who does cheat Probability, you are now one of them, no longer one of us! But don’t spend the Money just yet!
Capitalism is being manipulated so that there are a very few WINNERS, and a Continent-full of LOSERS!
What did you think the 3-Martini Lunch, Outsourcing, Eminent Domain, Citizens United, Capital Gains and a host of other Legislative Maneuvers were about, which favor ONLY the HAVES & HAVE-MORES! You certainly could not have thought these Abominations were done to benefit WE THE PEOPLE, did you!
And, as years have gone by, the Wealthy Capitalists have discovered a multitude of ways to widen the GAP between themselves and the REST OF US. After all, somebody must cut their grass and pick up their Garbage! Even the Wealthy have Garbage!
Successful Wealthy Capitalists have grown SMARTER & SMARTER, while We The People have gotten DUMBER & DUMBER! While they got Richer, we kept drinking the Kool Aid!
In the 21st century when all the cows have left all the barns, We The People begin to march and sit-in out in the cold or inside a Wall Street office building in what we now call “occupy wall street”. Guess what! It’s too little and too late! And since all the Major Media (MSM) is owned by the Elitist Wealthy, those “occupy” movements don’t get much coverage or Capitalization. The Wealthy just allow the “occupy” movements to whither and die.
Tabacco: I consider myself both a funnel and a filter. I funnel information, not readily available on the Mass Media, which is ignored and/or suppressed. I filter out the irrelevancies and trivialities to save both the time and effort of my Readers and bring consternation to the enemies of Truth & Fairness! When you read Tabacco, if you don’t learn something NEW, I’ve wasted your time.
Tabacco is not a blogger, who thinks; I am a Thinker, who blogs. Speaking Truth to Power!
In 1981′s ‘Body Heat’, Kathleen Turner said, “Knowledge is power”.
