Trickle Down Economics

There have been a number of articles recently, usually from fascist mouthpieces like the Washington Post, that trash trickle down economics. They called it a bad idea that won’t die.

They are right but not in the way you think.

What is trickle down economics?

Trickle down economics is giving money to the rich and hoping that it finds its way to the poor.

Trickle down economics is not allowing middle-class people to keep their money.

As usual the media has it backwards, intentionally so, of course, because the media works for the rich.

It is the job of the media to confuse you.

When we give money to the government who then give it preferentially to the rich, that is trickle down economics.

And, guess what, it doesn’t work.

But when we give money to the middle class through tax breaks, that is not trickle down economics.

That’s only what the media wants you to think.

What our government practices now, and has practiced since FDR, is trickle down economics.

Fighting nonstop wars, both physical and abstract, in which we give trillions of dollars to defense contractors and corporations to fight the war – whether it’s a real war in Vietnam or Iraq, or an abstract war such as the war on drugs, or the war on poverty – is trickle down economics.

It is trickle down economics because the corpo-fascist pigs at the top keep a disproportionate share of the money.

Our politicians like these wars because they have been given postpaid bribes in the form of corporate board seats, jobs for their worthless children, speaking engagements, book deals, and hosting spots on television programs.

And as you have seen, the rich have gotten richer and the poor have gotten poorer.

People who make a million dollars a year are not rich. They are still middle class.

People who are worth fifteen million dollars are not rich. They are still middle class.

John D. Rockefeller was rich. These people are nowhere close to John D. Rockefeller. In today’s money John D. Rockefeller was worth about $500 billion. That’s rich. That’s upper class.

The people who make a million a year are not rich. Got it?

Those people live pretty much the same life that you do.

Those people who make a million a year cannot afford their own private jet. They cannot afford their own super yacht.

They are not rich.

They live the same life that you do. They fly on commercial jets just like you.

It is those people who will start the small businesses that will share the wealth amongst poor people.

When those people get tax breaks, they will invest that money in their local community.

That money invested in the local community will lift it up, make it better.

That’s called trickle up economics.

On the other hand, when we give that money to the government in the form of taxes, we put power into the government.

The problem with that is that the government is usually stupid and corrupt.

Government officials more often than not give that money away to their cronies like the DuPonts and the other rich families whose corporations contract with the government.

Now if these cronies were smart it wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Frequently these cronies though are lazy and stupid. They got to where they got not by being smart but by being connected.

The rich, who would like to keep all their money to themselves, are happy to confuse you, or happy for you to think that giving your money to the government will make things better for you.

Unfortunately experience has not proven this to be the case.

Those countries that have embraced a government approach to economics, such as the Soviet Union, such as Cuba, such as North Korea, such as all the former eastern bloc countries, have failed miserably, have impoverished their peoples.

What socialist and communist countries engage in is trickle down economics.

Allowing people to keep their money is trickle up economics.

The media, controlled by the rich, has it backwards, and intentionally so.

How to Fix America in 10 Easy Steps

1. Restore order. Maintaining order is the number one function of government. This is something that Donald Trump has failed to do. It’s embarrassing for me to say that as a conservative. When we have massive, systemic riots in the nation, the President must take command. To do that boots are needed on the ground, and plenty of them. Where will we get those boots? That leads me to point number two.

2. Shut down the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq in their entirety. As long as we are over there, we will never be able over here to fix our problems over here. We don’t belong over there in the first place. Defending democracy begins here at home in the United States of America. The troops can be put to good use here. Of course, discipline and order is only part of the equation. Those are the sticks. To be successful, you need carrots. And that leads me to point number three.

3. Bring the manufacturing back jobs back to the inner city so that poor folk here have real jobs that pay real money. That can’t happen as long as exploitation is our national economic policy. Shut down the sweat shops in Indonesia and Southeast Asia. Poor folk can be making good money making shoes and apparel and all sorts of textiles here in the United States of America. How do we do that? Remember those troops that we brought back from Afghanistan and Iraq. Some are going down to the docks to make sure that not one Nike shoe enters the United States of America from overseas. Too bad, Nike shoes. Too bad, Lebron “Shameless” James. Your golden cash cow is cooked. And that leads me to point four.

4. It’s time to shut down the power of Corporate America and their well-paid celebrity shills. We do that by taking these large corporations and busting them up with a sledgehammer.. That’s what Ida Tarbell did to John D. Rockefeller, and it’s high time we took a page out of her book. We must tolerate no more of these international corporations that only serve to polarize wealth and emaciate the American people. Globalism and the global stars can take a hike. So can the CIA, the thug agency of the wealthy elite. It’s nothing more than a secret police force that engages in dirty tricks against ordinary citizens foreign and domestic.

5. When we get rid of the big corporations, we can jettison these international superstars like LeBron James also. Shameless James works against the black man. He incites riots in the inner cities that destroy black lives’ neighborhoods.

And why is that? Because the name of the game is race and race hustling in America today. Promoting class warfare serves the government and its bedfellow, Corporate America, well. It keeps the black man focused on rage which keeps him from beating his sword into a plowshare. It also ensures chaos in the black community that will ensure the production of black inmates necessary to justify the other cash cow from which Corporate America profits handsomely – the prison system.

All the while, Shameless James makes a fortune by shilling for Nike shoes. When he’s not pitching for Nike shoes he’s investing in Blaze Pizza shops that sell overpriced pizzas to white people in white neighborhoods. Where are the Blaze Pizza shops in Compton, East St. Louis and Algiers? They don’t exist. But you don’t know that, because the main stream media is controlled by a few corporate pigs. And that leaves me to point six.

6. Break up the oversized media companies. Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter have too much power in the United States. There is no true diversity of opinion. These oversize media companies are really just agents of the federal government. We need diversity of opinion. Moreover we need truth tellers whose principal client is not their ten-million dollar salary. Someone who makes that much money is liable to say anything. Presenters and hosts must not be beholden to a corporation, but to the truth wherever it lies.

7. We must put a premium on honor and process again. We have become a Shark Tank nation focused on making money at any cost as if the size of one’s bank account was the sum total of a man or woman. It is not. A country focused and consumed by money, possessions and toys cannot survive. No system, I repeat, no system can hold up under greed. Healthcare is collapsing because of greed. Rapacious Palo Alto giants are rushing to substitute a human-based care model with a machine-based algorithm. The former relies on intelligence and compassion; the latter relies on AI and money-making efficiency. Which leads me to point eight.

8. We are human beings, and we should remain human beings. We are not machines. Yet we have Elon Musk and Neuralink that have the desire to make us into machines. It’s all part of trans-humanism, don’t you know? If we go down this route, will we be better off? What will we lose? Can our fragile bodies of carbon meet the demands of the mathematicians of the Third Reich of whom our Palo Alto overlords find themselves enamored. Transforming and perfecting humanity is their goal, and that is the vision that they have prosecuted in the United States for many decades now. It must be firmly repulsed.

9. Overthrowing the Fuhrer’s mathematical vision of the future, his dream of a master race begins in our elementary schools where we currently teach children that failure is not an option and that there are no excuses. This is antithetical to Christianity and it must be rejected. Christianity not only preaches that failure is an option, but that it must be an option; for if it is not an option, then there is no need for forgiveness. Never once have I read in the New Testament where Jesus walked up to a sinner and said: No excuses.

No excuses mandates a perfection of humanity that can not be attained.

Other pernicious methodologies must be jettisoned as well. The standardized test and the focus on mathematical scores serve to score and stratify people. People are thus perceived as better because their GPA and SAT scores sit above the 90th percentile. This engenders a sense of entitlement amongst the more intellectually gifted. The so-called best and brightest then set out to fulfill the false prophecy instilled in them that they are destined for great power, wealth and fame.

That people are better and more valuable than others because they were gifted with higher intelligence is antithetical to Christian thought.

10. This does not necessarily mean that Christianity must be the official religion in the United States of America. What it does mean is that Christianity must be a viable participant in the affairs of the United States of America. What we are seeing today are the fruits of a secular world devoid of any religion at all. It does not work.

New World Order Judges

Yesterday, the chief justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts, rebuked Donald Trump after Donald Trump spoke out against Judge Jon Tigar a federal judge in California.  Trump also complained about another group of judges who take care of matters pertaining chiefly to the west coast.

Donald Trump was upset because this particular judge had overruled his policy of denying political asylum to immigrants who desire to enter the country.

Trump called John Tigar an “Obama Judge.”  

The chief justice responded that his judges were not “Obama Judges” but independent judges.

That’s a laugh.

There’s nothing independent about the federal judiciary when it comes to the general welfare of the country.

These federal judges are 100% USDA-certified puppets of the New World Order.  They are gutless, clueless, privileged cowards hell-bent on harming the integrity of the nation.  

It is the New World Order’s goal to create a common market in North America between Canada, the United States, Mexico and Central America; abolish local currencies; then establish their bullshit government most likely devoid of the Bill of Rights and the second amendment.

Of course, the Amero, printed by the elites will be important; but what they really want is gun control.  They need to find a way to negate the second amendment.  Creating a supranational state is integral to that plan.

Forget about Madison and Jefferson.  Clearly they are no longer relevant.

To attain this supranational state it is important to destroy the integrity of the United States, Mexico and Central America.

This was aided vastly via NAFTA which destroyed the economy of the independent corn farmer in Mexico by dumping cheap corn into Mexico.  These independent corn farmers, with no place to go after having been thrown off their lands, either joined El Chapo in the drug trade or emigrated to the United States.  That’s one reason why you have this massive migration of Mexican citizens into the United States. The elites knew exactly what they were doing. We know this because they have done nothing to fix it. They are totally content with this immigration. In addition NAFTA made the elite wealthier.

The same situation is going on in Central America today with CAFTA. CAFTA exploits the poor, pollutes the environment and creates a culture of poverty within which gangs thrive. That’s why you have so many gangs like MS 13 coming from Central America; that’s why you have so much immigration coming from Central America. Who wants to live in poverty surrounded by gangsters? That’s why you have the caravan. Again, the elites know exactly what they are doing. They have done nothing to fix this problem. They completely avoid solving the root of the problem which is to make Central America a nice place to live and raise a family. Why would they want to do that? CAFTA makes them rich.

Concomitant to causing upheaval in Mexico and Central America is the necessity to break down barriers of entry in the United States.

To achieve this we have the pusillanimous government in California, which is now a state in Mexico, and we have clueless judges like Jon Tigar who Trump attacks.

He calls Tigar and his ilk “Obama Judges.”  

In reality, they are judges of the New World Order.  It doesn’t matter whether they were appointed by Bush, Obama or Clinton. It’s not a Republican versus Democrat issue because all three presidents were puppets of the New World Order. All three Presidents did tremendous damage to the United States through these ridiculous trade agreements and the fighting of international wars which have devastated the United States economy and impoverished you in the process.

Remember, the economy is about your welfare, not the Dow’s welfare.

The elites try to frame this as a racial issue; but it’s not a racial issue. It’s an economic issue and always has been.  It matters not whether you are white, brown, black, red, purple or polka dot.

If we do not stop this diabolical plan of the New World Order, you can expect your stake in the  American Dream to plunge.  

The New World Order’s plan is bad for everyone.

My Land of Lakes, Sweet Land of Liberty

Just the other day Land of Lakes butter decided to rescind support for Representative Steve King of Iowa.

I suppose they think he is some sort of racist or bigot.

Well, maybe he is.  I don’t know.  He sure sounds extreme.  There are many, many of his views I disagree with.

My question is this:  Why does Land of Lakes butter think at all about what kind of views Steve King, or anyone else, has toward anyone?

The only thing Land of Lakes butter should think about in our current system is making better butter here in America.

That’s what Land of Lakes butter should be concerned about.  

Now, if you’re a social activist and believe that Land of Lakes butter should be concerned about what Steve King thinks, then you should ask how much money Land of Lakes butter makes by selling butter to the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan.

How much money does Land of Lakes butter make off our global killing machine?

Does Land of Lakes butter benefit by supporting war?

War and subsequent exploitation of peoples is the ultimate form of bigotry.

Maybe Land of Lakes butter is the ultimate bigot here.

Maybe Land of Lakes butter ought to shut its big, fat mouth.

Maybe Land of Lakes butter along with other corporations shouldn’t be allowed to lobby at all.

Maybe Land of Lakes butter along with the other corporations shouldn’t be allowed to contribute to political campaigns.

People who sit on a high horse get knocked off.

At any rate, the job of a business is to add value to society, and the best way for Land of Lakes butter to do that is to make better butter.

That’s why Land of Lakes butter exists.

Land of Lakes butter is not a person regardless of what the Supreme Court may think or dictate.

As a non-person, Land of Lakes butter has no soul, no sense of shame, and no country.  Given the time, they will prove just that in spades.

Of course this is the modern trend:  using global corporations to decide who your representatives will be via campaign contributions.

If this is what you are for, welcome to  Corporate America, your new feudal overlord.

There is no need for you to think anymore, my friend.  Land of Lakes butter will take care of that for you.

In his own way, JFK foresaw the future we now live in and offered an alternative vision.  For that he was killed.

How to Fix The JFK Lie in 30 Seconds

Going for the Gusto

No healthcare system can hold up against greed.

No innovation can stand up against greed.

No reform can stand up against greed.

Greed kills all.

Greed is the mother of death.

Corporate greed is the biggest  mother of all.

Sensible reforms to healthcare corporations involve the following acknowledgements, epiphanies and measures:

  1. CEO pay must be fixed.
  2. Stock option packages for corporate executives, board members, consultants or anyone else must be banned.  Such packages represent theft.
  3. Corporate profits must be controlled as in a utility. The purpose of the corporation is to add value to society – not rack up profits.
  4. Healthcare is not a place to get rich.   Can’t handle that, Bub?  Go make televisions.
  5. Healthcare corporations may not own other corporations or companies.  We aren’t going to allow a small group of men in Poughkeepsie to control the lives of one hundred million people.
  6. Board member pay must be limited to a pauper’s salary to ensure that the board member is involved for honor not wealth.
  7. No board member may sit on a board of another company of any type.  The era of the professional board member is over.  
  8. Half the board members must come from and be fully educated within that immediate community.  This is done to prevent carpetbaggers from elite universities from hijacking a wide number of corporations so as to institute their politically correct agenda which has nothing to do with helping people and everything to do with feathering their own nests.
  9. Board members may not place their board membership on their resume nor promote themselves to the public as having sat on the board except for the purpose of delivering factual information for the public good when asked This is to prevent guru-ism.
  10. No board member nor his company nor his wife’s company nor any one connected with the board member (or his wife) three generations forward, backward or laterally may do business with the corporation.
  11. Healthcare corporations may not hire professional lobbyists.  Healthcare corporations are not people; as such, they have no sense of shame.  Shame does not necessarily kill greed, but, short of economic collapse, only shame can kill greed.
  12. Healthcare corporations may not be publicly traded in the stock market.  It is the whooping it up by television cheerleaders when stocks go higher that entices CEOs to further maximize profits.

There is little point to making any change in healthcare unless greed is limited.

As long as people continue to “go for the gusto”, we are sunk.

Princess Eugenie’s Big Day

Define obscenity.

Princess Eugenie’s big day.  That’s what the media called it:  Her big day.

What about the big day for the Yemenese who have nothing but cholera thanks to the greed of the US and GB who support the ruthless Saudi regime’s crackdown on their country?

What about the big day for the Jamaicans who live in poverty today thanks to the bone crushing exploitation of Great Britain for centuries.  Once they gained independence, to rebuild their depleted country they borrowed themselves into slavery to the elites at the IMF.

Oh, yeah, baby; they’ll never get out of debt.

What about the big day for the 400,000 who died in Syria so that the rich in London could live well?

And we’re only talking about this century.  We could easily discuss the Opium Wars, the oppression of India, the enlisting of Hindus to work British slave plantations around the world, the Irish potato famine, the 1876 famine in India and much, much more.

But why be negative?

Let’s celebrate Princess Eugenie’s big day.

All the smiling celebrity oppressors were there.

The big day.

Fuck Princess Eugenie and her big day.

Princess Eugenie could have had a bigger and more meaningful day by renouncing her silly title and the silly system of peerage that Great Britain clings to.

The gall of these people and their sycophants to dress up in splendor at the taxpayer’s expense is staggering.

The cost must have been enormous.  

Oh, only 3.5 million?  Very well, proceed.

Like the Supreme Court Justice, Potter Stewart, I can’t define obscenity but I know it when I see it.

Yet many people don’t think so.

Like the Roman mob, they like a good show.

They are unable to see the connection between the spectacle of a royal marriage and their own ignorance of world affairs.

This is what the modern media does.  It replaces meat and potatoes with cotton candy.

It impoverishes the soul.

It robs people of their self respect and dignity.

It’s part of the codependency that the elites have with their serfs.

The elites agree to believe that they are superior, that they are entitled to participate in grand spectacles while the poor agree to believe that they are inferior, that they are not entitled to participate in the good life, that they exist to watch and discuss what the elites are doing.

The masters agree to believe that they are supermen while their serfs agree to believe that they are the little people not worthy of questioning matters that pertain to the elites.

The “betters” agree to be ghastly rich; their “lessers” agree to scrounge for pennies and dimes.

The problem with this paradigm is that your Founding Fathers constructed your  government so that you would not think this way.

This is the way of Great Britain. This is the way of the Old World. This is what your Founding Fathers were trying to prevent. 

And this is what the elites have been trying to reestablish since July 4, 1776.

July 4, 1776 is not just a celebration of independence from the country of Great Britain.  

It is a celebration of your independence from elite domination.

July 4, 1776 is not just an American Independence Day; it’s in Independence Day for every human being on the planet who is oppressed by an elite class and the obscenity they commit against their people.

Changing the Corporation

I live in a fantasy world. I am the most unrealistic person the world is ever seen.

I am so naïve there is a picture of me in the dictionary beside the word naive.

Yet I try to be practical.

In a perfect world we would outlaw major corporations.

But that is not going to happen, so instead we must try another tack.

Let us ask what happened to our major corporations. How did they get so off kilter? How were they able to grow so big so as to become willing collaborators with big government in establishing a New World Order?

Our New World Order is fascist.

The core of the corporation is the committee. The committee is where ideas are discussed and hammered out. On its surface the committee seems to be a good idea. Theoretically the best ideas should rise to the top.

But experience suggests that this is not so.  Often the worst ideas rise to the top.


Because people value collegiality over confrontation in a group setting.  

In time slick leaders take advantage of this and learn how to game a committee to their advantage.

People with good ideas that promote long term value over immediate profits are labeled crackpots.  Legitimate criticism is derided as naysaying.  Rewards are given to sycophants and puppets who do the leader’s bidding.

In time, good people throw up their hands and leave the committee as it becomes increasingly dominated by the immoral values of a tyrant.

What can we do?

We can and must return to the sensible controls that our founding fathers had placed on corporations.

Each and every day the founding fathers look smarter.

In the days of our founding fathers, corporations were limited as to what they could do. They had specific purposes for specific lengths of times. The owners of the corporations could be held personally liable for any malfeasance of the corporation.  Profits could be limited to a specific amount.  Salaries were limited and defined.  Corporations were not permitted to own other corporations.  This was not only important with respect to limiting profits; doing so also promoted accountability.

By placing controls on corporations, we prevent hucksters from entering the corporation to begin with. Once the huckster sees that he has no cash cow to exploit, the huckster moves away.

This is a good thing.

Sensible reforms will enable corporations to be more responsive and sensitive to the people that they serve.

Corporations must exist for us, not we for them.

The Big Bogus

The size of the national debt is a bogus issue.

It was a bogus issue in the 1980s; it’s a bogus issue today.

The elites love to talk about the size of the national debt in order to make you uneasy.  

The uneasier you are, the weaker you are, the better it is for them.

They constantly talk about the national debt.

They place large scrolling signs in the bigger cities that regularly update the national debt to the public.

Stop listening to them.

The national debt is not the same as your debt.

It’s not the same because the federal government can print new money; you can’t.

If you owe $100,000 on your house, you can’t print up $100,000 to pay it off.

The federal government can, and it does.

Moreover it doesn’t even care about piling up debt because the debt is not there to be paid off.

Let me explain.

Let’s say that the national debt is five billion dollars.  How do you make that insignificant? You do so by printing up five trillion dollars.  

Now let’s move forward. How do you make five trillion dollars seem insignificant? You do so by printing up five quadrillion dollars.

You can play this game in perpetuity.  As you can see, the national debt never gets paid off. That’s the whole point. It’s a scheme that avoids that pain.

There is nothing inherently wrong in borrowing money.  What counts in the national debt is what you are spending the money on and who gets it.

If you are spending the money on a bender in Las Vegas, that is a poor investment.

On the other hand, if you are spending the money on education, that is a good investment.

Who gets the money?

Does the money go to wealthy elites as it did in 2008?

Or does it go to regular people in paying off their mortgages as it should have done in 2008, but, of course, did not.

When we invest in war abroad, that is a poor investment in money. It is so because the elites skim an inordinate amount off the top for themselves. Also, at the end of the war all you are left with is a pile of rusted metal junk. Plus many lives have been lost.

When we invest in education and healthcare domestically in a decentralized manner which allows individual citizens to choose their healthcare or education, that is a wise  investment of money.   It is so because it prevents elites from skimming too much money off the top.  Also, at the end of the day we have healthier, smarter people – always a matter of concern to the elites.

So when the media speaks about the national debt, don’t get freaked out. Ask yourself what are we investing in and who is getting the money.

When you do that, you will be smarter than your average bear.
