THE ABSURD TIMES
Illustration: Just one of the many birth defects in Fallujah which has a defect rate about 32 times expected. I seem to remember something about our being "protected" from the evil lurking in that city.
One of you sent me this:
If a tree is dying, you don't pour water on the dead branches to revive them, you cut the suckers off and burn them so new sprouts take hold and grow. At the same time, you put the water on the roots so they can support the new growth. The workers are the roots - the ordinary people. You have bought in and followed the old way and supported the damn corporations like they are too big to fail, instead of giving support to the workers and the ordinary people, so what you have done is bound to fail. And you wont get another 4 years to try to fix it.
Of course, the problem is that the Obama Cabal already knows this. The problem is that the electorate, such as it is, screams against any sort of movement towards helping them as they are carefully brainwashed by corporate agents.
Take healthcare, for example. People are convinced that having the government, instead of insurance companies, provide for our right to healthcare, it will make paupers of them all. They fail to realize that Health Insurance Corporations are not in the business of insuring anything but higher quarterly profits for their stockholders. It makes no sense to criticize them for this, as it is what they were designed to do and will continue to do so long as we allow them to exist. In fact, if they are concerned with health care at all, it is that people be sick so the they give them more money. It is ludicrous for usw to expect anything different from them.
Actually, if we really believed that having the government provide for our health would make us paupers, it is also quite true to say that having the government provide for defense against terrorism makes all of us cowards. We should, by this logic, pick ourselves up by our own bootstraps, buy flame throwers, and be on the lookout for Jihad Jane and her type, not that anyone below the Mason-Dixon line has a thing to worry about.
Another sent along this article. Since I was not aware of this site, some of you might not be as well, and so I pass it along:
After I had copied the above, the below appeared on my browser, so I pass it along for your delight:
