On The Streets…..Of America

I just watched a video on homelessness and I was quite struck by a brilliant observation from someone who commented on the video.

“People oppose welfare but they defend monopolism with every tooth and nail. They’re both forms of wealth redistribution. The only reason anyone has a good paying job is because they’re employed by companies who are somehow protected from competition, either by IP, geography, zoning laws, or licensing and permit schemes. The same laws prohibit individuals from employing themselves, resulting in widespread poverty. Anyone who has a good paying job has not a square inch of room to complain about welfare.

Nobody can be expected to get a job without a home. If all the money we spend on building new prisons were used instead to build public apartment high rises, crime would drop, minimum wages would go further, and modest rent rates could be a source of public revenue rather than a constant tax liability. The government collects more than enough taxes to guarantee that every citizen has a safe, clean place to sleep and bathe. I don’t care if lazy people chose instead to sit around their apartments all day doing nothing. It’s cheaper than prisons and more civilized than abandoning the poor to loitering the streets, prostitution, drugs, shoplifting, mugging, breaking into homes, sleep in filth, spread bugs and germs and get sick all the time.” – by Ox1A3C3E7

That comment is spot on! We have no problem with the fact that monopolies are encouraged when mere decades ago, there were laws in place to prevent monopolies, but that is a thing of the past. And now because of it, corporate greed runs amok, unchecked and add into the mixture the fact of huge tax breaks for these mega-corporations that have no competition and the people are held hostage by them. How many cable companies are in existence today? Telephone companies? Microsoft software is a monopoly since our computer systems use Microsoft software damn near exclusively. All of this leads to boundless profits for corporations while wages for those who work at the bottom rungs of those corporations earn wages that would not keep a hamster in feed, thus leading to hunger, homelessness and hopelessness. And what does the government do? It continues to aid and abet these corporations into becoming monopolies by refusing to break them up and also by encouraging the growth of monopolies with our tax dollars. Amazon is yet another ‘prime’ example even as Donald Trump likes to pretend to take umbrage with Jeff Bezos. My guess would be that he is just jealous of the fact that Bezos has far surpassed him in business acumen which Trump never had to begin with.

Meanwhile, video after video can be viewed that showcases the plight of homelessness, year after year and yet what is done to rein this in? Nothing. Just talk and more talk and hand wringing. Anyone can follow a homeless person around with a camera for a few days to get an idea of what life is like for the homeless, but when all is said and done, what good does that do? It only elicits a few comments and likes for those comments and suggestions and ideas and then on to the next. The sad fact is that ALL of us are headed where the homeless are. People are not paying attention to the fact that those who are sitting on Skid Row in Anytown, USA are going to have plenty of company. The plight of those who are already homeless will soon be felt by us all because no one is seriously trying to do anything about what millions of people are dealing with every single day. It matters not if I write poetry about the homeless or if people post videos about the homeless because if there is no real feasible solutions to throw at the problems that cause homelessness, the situation is going to continue to worsen.

Those of us who are comfortably looking at the situation from afar are not even thinking that we shall soon be in their shoes. Some of us are content to think that our jobs will always be there as will our pensions. I wouldn’t count on that because pension funds are being raided as I type this and Social Security does not pay enough to live on. And though there are suggestions to move oversees or to Latin American countries where your Social Security will go further, that is just not feasible for everyone. And with many of those countries that are named as great retirement havens in the news for having mass protests over a lack of food, medicine and housing, who in their right mind would head to those areas flaunting their ‘privilege’ in the face of mobs of people, gaunt and sunken-eyed looking to feed their hungry children? Take your ass on over to Venezuela and see how you fare. Try Honduras. Guatemala. Mexico City, Mexico. Either get caught up in drug warfare or get caught up in a United States staged coup against a Latin American country. But either way, your situation is not going to be roses and all things bright and beautiful forever. And even in countries like Ecuador and Costa Rica, the natives are going to get mighty sick and tired of foreigners coming in buying up everything for pennies on the dollar and paying them pennies to wait on them hand and foot.

And as usual, it is mostly whites who can take themselves off when the shit hits the fan for them while those who already have the shit hitting the fan, must stay and deal with a country that is rapidly descending into Third world status. Some of you may think it funny that hookworms are dripping out of the assholes of homeless people, nationwide, but it’s not. Some of you may think it funny that typhus is making the rounds of the homeless population in multiple cities, but it’s not. Add to those issues are the other physical and mental illnesses that most homeless people are dealing with and what that means is that hospitals are overwhelmed with emergency room visits by people whom they cannot collect payment from.

People try and act as though they cannot understand that mass homelessness costs more than housing and necessary services to stabilize the homeless once they have been housed and with communicable diseases on the rise, that is no small problem especially seeing as how there are diseases that no antibiotic can cure. When serious plagues start resurfacing and plagues never before seen start occurring, what is going to be the exit strategy for that? There is none. We’d ALL better wake up to the fact that homelessness is not just impacting those who are sitting out on the sidewalks or who are sitting inside tents or living in their vehicles, it is going to impact us all in some way or another. Something for you to think about while shopping for chicken wings and hoagie ‘meat’ for your Superbowl parties. What we ‘give’ importance to is just too ludicrous for words given the seriousness of the situation as it pertains to the rapid descent of this shithole called America. People are homeless, sick and hungry while those of us who have not yet joined them are anxiously awaiting the Superbowl since bets have been placed and there are parties to be hosted. It is no wonder we are sinking like a stone since we will get behind anything that will distract us from the truth and from seeing those who have already gone where we too shall go. And you can take that to the bank!

Republican Senator Mitch McConnell Whose Net Worth Is $22.8 Million And Who Recently Called For Cuts To Social Security And Medicare Disputes His Bill At Cuban Restaurant, “Havana Rumba”

 

While dining out at Havana Rumba, a Cuban restaurant in Louisville Friday night, Mitch McConnell and wife, Chao were disrupted from their dining experience by a man who has been hailed, a “hero” for calling the senator out on his comments that he intends to call for cuts to Social Security and Medicare since they, in his opinion, are why there is a huge budget deficit. That is not true, but Americans do tend to believe the lies put out by those they elect to political office. However, thankfully, one man was not falling for the lies put out by Mitch McConnell that Social Security and Medicare are the sole cause for the budget deficit.

The hero of the hour, who remains nameless at the writing of this blog, bellowed these words at the senator, “Why don’t you get out of here?  Why don’t you leave the entire country?” Whereupon Republican Senator Mitch McConnell flagged down a waiter and requested to speak with the establishment’s manager in order to have his bill disputed down to $0. When asked why McConnell thought that he should pay nothing for his and his wife’s meal, the senator responded, “Like Social Security and Medicare is causing a huge budget deficit, so too would my paying for this meal cause a huge deficit in my net worth of $22.8 million and to avoid this, I would rather not pay for the meal.” The manager understood and declined to charge McConnell and his wife for the meal. The next couple would have an added tax placed on their credit card charge for their meal to make up for the cost of the McConnell’s meal.

And there’s this … the woman who shot the video says before McConnell left there appeared to be some dispute over the bill. They talked to the waiter and restaurant manager and apparently resolved it.

You see, having a net worth of $22.8 million and knowing how to not ever need to touch it since it is so easy to dispute EVERYTHING when you are a senator of longstanding who has engaged in taking bribes and kickbacks for so many years from corporations, you become a pro at making sure that your net worth remains untouched even as you deplete the net worth of others, namely those who would rely on Social Security and Medicare to help them through their retirement years even as Mitch McConnell feeds at the taxpayer trough himself, helping himself to designer health care, a yearly salary of $193,400 and a six figure income for life even when he retires from the senate. So, what need has he for Social Security and Medicare when he’s got a wife who is rich on her own account and whose money he has also made use of even as he sits in a restaurant and disputes the cost of their meal.

He cares nothing for the senior who already has to sometimes go without food or medicine and who has to bankrupt themselves to pay the portion of medical expenses that even Medicare does not pay for while he enjoys a six figure income for life thanks to us taxpayers while he leaves untouched his $22.8 million since he also enjoys, at taxpayer expense, designer health care coverage that we can only dream of.

And let me clear up one thing right now. Social Security and Medicare are not responsible for why those corrupt criminals in Washington have caused a huge budget deficit. Their ‘pork’ programs that they throw in bloated budgets to be signed into law are partly responsible for a bloated budget, not to mention, a bloated military budget that funds useless aircraft that don’t even fly and that have had to be taken back to the drawing board to figure out why not. Social Security and Medicare are PAID FOR BY CONTRIBUTIONS OF ALL WHO WORK and since the republicans have been shouting, especially Donald Trump, that the unemployment rate is at 3.7 percent and is the lowest since December 1969, then how can Social Security and Medicare cause the budget deficit when practically everyone is working? The republicans want their cake and eat it too. You cannot state that the reason the budget deficit is so huge is because of two programs that are paid for by people working while at the same time state that the unemployment rate stands at 3.7 percent which would mean that the programs are being paid for and therefore, are not outrageous entitlements that are lacking funding. Also of note, Social Security has been raided by almost every Administration going back as far as Ronald Reagan.  The Social Security surplus revenue was used for wars, tax cuts and other government programs. The money was stolen and never put back and now that baby boomers are retiring, our ‘elected’ criminals are trying to place the blame elsewhere and not where it belongs, on the White House and the halls of congress.

Remember, it is NO lie that whenever a politician’s lips are moving, that politician is lying and Mitch McConnell is the perfect example of a lying politician. With a net worth such as his and yet, he is sitting somewhere attempting to obtain a ‘free’ meal from hard workers at a restaurant even as he seeks to deny those workers the right to their money when they retire. He is a shameless reptile and may he slither out of the senate the next time he is up for re-election and if not, what is wrong with the people of Kentucky? You folks don’t need Social Security and Medicare? For your sake, I hope not because as long as you continue to elect the likes of Mitch McConnell, you won’t have to worry about those programs being around if you should need them!

Republican Senator Mitch McConnell Calls to Cut Social Security, Medicare

 

Actually by doing this, McConnell is engaging in great strategy right before the Midterm elections. You see, by calling for cuts to Social Security and Medicare, this is sure to get the baby boomers in an uproar which will likely lead them to head to the polls in record numbers to vote for Democrats, which will then give the Democrats control of the House. This will in turn aid the Republicans by the time 2020 gets here and Donald Trump is up for re-election because then McConnell and his GOP cronies and Donald Trump can say that they got not a goddamn thing accomplished because Democrats dug their heels in and refused to pass any legislation. That is excellent strategy because why else would you stand up and loudly proclaim your intent to cut Social Security and Medicare a mere two weeks before the Midterms? You wouldn’t unless you wanted the opposite party in control of the House so that then you could claim that the Democratic party was holding up Donald Trump and the GOP from making any headway in passing bills because otherwise, this would be considered, “political suicide.” And even though baby boomers are dying off, there are still enough of them left to vote and make a difference at the polls because if there is one thing baby boomers will do, and that is to vote if they believe that Social Security and Medicare is being threatened.

After instituting a $1.5 trillion tax cut and signing off on a $675 billion budget for the Department of Defense, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that the only way to lower the record-high federal deficit would be to cut entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

“It’s disappointing but it’s not a Republican problem,” McConnell said of the deficit, which grew 17 percent to $779 billion in fiscal year 2018. McConnell explained to Bloomberg that “it’s a bipartisan problem: Unwillingness to address the real drivers of the debt by doing anything to adjust those programs to the demographics of America in the future.” The deficit has increased 77 percent since McConnell became majority leader in 2015.

The republicans just implemented a $1.5 trillion tax cut for the rich, increased spending on the military which already has a bloated budget and yet, Mitch McConnell is stating that Social Security and Medicare are what is needed to be cut? Talk about outrageous lies, that right there is one hellacious outrageous lie! And to make it seem even worse, Social Security and Medicare are considered ‘entitlements’. Another play on words since who could be more ‘entitled’ than members of Congress who enjoy designer health care and hundreds of thousands of dollars in the form of a salary FOR LIFE for doing fuck all? You see Mitch McConnell can destroy Social Security and Medicare because he knows that he will never NEED to make use of those programs of which millions of Americans pay into their entire working lives. So how can Social Security and Medicare be considered an ‘entitlement’ by ANY stretch of the imagination when people are paying into both programs? It cannot. But just as ‘liberal’ has been declared, a ‘dirty’ word, so has Social Security and Medicare been given designations as ‘entitlements’ to make people feel ashamed when they apply for the very programs that exist because they worked and put their hard earned money into. Republicans are shameless reptiles when they can attempt to reduce workers into shameful slogs to be used for their agenda and that agenda in this case being that they intend to cause a “Blue Wave” during the Midterms so that they can indeed, point fingers at the Democrats and call them, “OBSTRUCTIONISTS!” This same, tired old playbook never grows old. They just expect the American people to continue to be bamboozled by their shenanigans. And if we continue to fall for this GOP dog and pony show, then we are indeed, fools.

Both parties have tried their damned best to cut Social Security and Medicare for years but since the republicans are now at the helm and people are getting frustrated with “flaming orange 45’s antics,” it is time to up the ante and mix the shit up, thereby allowing for a “Blue Wave” to take the pressure off Trump and the GOP. They know their shit is raggedy and so they are attempting damage control by galvanizing the baby boomers to give seats to the Democrats. Watch what happens. If the Democrats take the House, which is why Mitch McConnell is calling for cuts to Social Security and Medicare, then the GOP is going to jump up and down in political advertisements come 2020 and exclaim that because the Democrats refused to engage in bipartisanship, nothing was accomplished and so vote a straight republican ticket in 2020. And if that happens, you can best believe that we ALL will be sitting out on the streets, dripping typhus and hookworm, which is already making the rounds in homeless encampments and in areas that are so severely poverty stricken to the point, they are likened to a third world country, which is exactly what the politicians in Washington have in store for ALL of U.S. Don’t believe it? Then bookmark this post and if this is all put in motion, try and find a Wi-Fi signal and pull this page back up in 2020 and I will make a believer out of you.

People, don’t fall for the okie doke AGAIN. Don’t play the fool for these politicians who think of you as less than bugs to be squashed on the sidewalk. They don’t care about any of us and that includes white, Black, middle class, poor, homeless; it makes no difference. Left to them, we shall ALL end up the same way; homeless, sick, broke and dead! America is being destroyed by America’s politicians. We don’t need an overfunded military because no outside force is seeking to destroy America. America is being attacked from within. It is an ‘inside job’. America’s politicians are out to feather their nests at the expense of ours. They are corporate-owned and corporate controlled. They fill you with fear about some shadowy bogeyman in Afghanistan or somewhere when in reality, those people just want Americans out of their country. We would not stand for usurpers from another country to come here and take over and so why should they? Those people had nothing to do with your 9/11. Fear mongering is a strategy both political parties have engaged in because it works. They control us by telling us who our enemy is when we have no greater enemy than worthless, corrupt, criminal politicians and that is why they are busy pointing the finger at others, to get the focus off what they are doing to us all. This November, tell them to shove it up their ass! You are not falling for their lies and that Social Security and Medicare are not the problem, are not the reason there is a huge budget deficit and that no, those programs are not ‘entitlements’. They are there for you because you paid for them. Those ‘entitled’ asses in congress need to get voted the fuck out. Those are the ‘entitled’ assholes! Why do you  think they are called, “career politicians?” There should be no such thing since ‘term limits’ should apply to ALL members of Congress. Wake up and vote that shit out!

Nevada Brothel Owner And Self-Professed Pimp Who Was Running For A Seat In The Nevada State Legislature Was Found Dead In His Whore House! Only In AmeriKKKa!

 

Only in Amerikka, does this ridiculous shit take place; a pimp who owned brothels wins the primary to run for a seat in the Nevada state legislature on the GOP ticket. The GOP party that constantly lauds itself as the party of ‘conservatism’ and family values is as hypocritical as it is amoral, rotten, corrupt and full of criminals who should be behind bars for the cruddy, criminal shit they do.

I guess we’ve all forgotten that former Los Angeles Lakers basketball player, Lamar Odom was found near death after going on a drug and whore binge at the brothel owned by this pimp, Dennis Hof, who just kicked the bucket in his own goddamn whorehouse in Nevada. Well, that’s one way to keep some scum from gaining a political seat.

Dennis Hof, the Nevada brothel owner whose business was at the center of the HBO series “Cathouse,” has been found dead. He was 72.

Hof’s death was confirmed by the Nye County Sheriff’s Office in Nevada, which said that he had been found at his Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada.

Only in Amerikkka, will you find headlines such as this. This entire shithole is the laughingstock of the world and rightly so. Who on this planet besides stupid Amerikkkans could read about shit such as this and believe that Amerikkka is the land of ‘milk and honey’ and stands for ‘freedom, justice and liberty for all’? A goddamn gnat couldn’t wipe its ass on the amount of ‘freedom, justice and liberty’ that is to be found in Amerikkka because there is none. All we got is the likes of this shit that’s claimed to represent the party of ‘conservative family values’ and who owned whorehouses and a narcissistic president with an ego the size of Texas, who frequently engages in name calling while lauding flaming racist, bigots and white supremacist groups and who expounds on his ability to “Grab women by the pussy!” Well, we ALL know that those whores in this dead, bloated fuck’s brothel were grabbed by their pussies and had no problem with it. Not to mention, that HBO was so desperate for ratings that it actually filmed a series on whoring and apparently, those in the land of the stupid, brain dead and afraid were tuning in to watch whores in action in Nevada. This shit is just to ludicrous for words.

This deceased sad sack of shit likened himself to President Donald Trump, saying that, “What qualifies me is the same thing that qualified Trump,”The Trump of Pahrump.”

“I’m a businessman,” Hof said. “We sign the front of the paycheck, not the back. We know what it takes to run a business and a state is just like a business but with a lot more zeros on it.” And that is exactly what Trump is doing, the same as this piece of dead shit, treating an entire country like it is just a business which is why he was able to sign a massive tax bill that gave himself and shits like this deceased garbage, a big huge tax break and then claim that the middle class benefitted from his tax plan when that was an outrageous lie!

At least one of these worthless shits has done us all a favor and dropped dead. Now if only more would follow suit, that would be a tremendous help. They’re all old ass fucks anyway who need to just do us ALL a favor and keel over! And yet the Amerikkkan people back this shit, even those who sit up in church, professing to be all religious and sanctified while lauding pimps and sexual predators so long as they are WHITE. Even so-called evangelicals seem able to look the other way when racism, bigotry, prejudice and hatred is the law of the land since they get behind such as the likes of Trump and this deceased pimp. And yet, their congregations head inside those palaces of hypocrisy every Sunday to sit up and listen to shit about who the hell knows what since it is quite obvious that no one practices what the “Buybull” teaches for if they did, they could not in all honesty support pimps and sexual predators, but since they do, then what is the point of even going to church? There is none because everything sitting up in there is headed, not for some fucking rapture, but to bust their so-called ‘hell’ wide fucking open. You hypocritical pieces of brain dead shit are just beyond the end of enough.

And why aren’t ‘white’ women somewhere protesting that brothels exploit women, sexually? Why aren’t they outraged that a ‘white male pimp’ loudly and with great relish hailed himself as the “Pimp of Pimps” and we all know what a pimp is to a prostitute? “White” women, why weren’t you screaming for this dick’s head on a platter since several of his whores had accused him of sexually assaulting them or is it due to the fact that they worked in a whorehouse and so therefore, should have expected their pimp to do what ALL pimps do to their whores, sexually assault them, beat them down and take their money from them? And don’t even bother screaming and yelling that at least those whores are tested for diseases and so that right there gives them a safe environment in which to ply their wares. Newsfuckingflash, there is no such thing as safe sex. Just ask the whores who work in the porn industry since many of them are battling sexually transmitted diseases. Condoms break, come off and so aren’t infallible. The number one reason contestants who tried out for “The Bachelor” were disqualified was due to the fact that they were walking around with herpes and were unaware of the fact until the show tested them for STDs and told those who were disqualified to “see their doctor.” And yet, this bloated, dead pimp, Dennis Hof, would more than likely have headed to the Nevada state legislature if he had not had the decency to drop dead first in his own diseased riddled brothel where he played the pimp to numerous whores.

“The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported earlier this year that multiple former prostitutes accused Hof of sexual assault earlier this year. The cases were never prosecuted. According to USA Today, Hof denied the allegations.

It would seem that whores are fair game and deserve what they get since I’ve seen not one protest sign about those accusations of sexual abuse against a piece of shit that was headed to the Nevada state legislature from Amerikkka’s version of “white pussy riot.” “Selective outrage” is a disease that millions of Amerikkkans have come down with and it would seem there is no cure. And the “good ole white boyz” club always stand by their menaces to society since what ‘white’ man isn’t a menace to ALL Black and Brown people. And that was not a question.

But we sit around bemoaning the fact that this country is descending into third world conditions, fast while at the same time, we vote for such as what is now deceased to head into the political arena and expect it to do wonders to stop the descent. It is quite apparent that there are millions of fools who live in this country and who have their heads shoved up their ass because eventually where the homeless are, we too shall go. It is just a matter of time. When you can sit somewhere and have no problem with the likes of pimp filth sitting in the legislature enacting laws that will aid the rich and further stomp on the poor, those of you who think you are immune to suffering, poverty, homelessness and misery can just think again. No evangelicals are going to come to your assistance when you cannot pay the tithes they demand you pay. No politician, including the likes of Donald “Grab them by the pussy” Trump is going to rescue you. He is busy trying to dismantle the few remaining safety net programs that were designed to at least aid in some small way, our ability to have an income if we become disabled and when we retire. He is attempting to cast the blame on everyone else when he and the rest of his GOP cronies are trying their damned best to cut Social Security and Medicare to pay for those tax cuts that benefitted Trump and his cronies and Trump’s supporters are too blinded by hatred and racism to see that when the smoke clears, their ass is grass because there is a difference in being one of Trump’s cronies and one of his supporters. His supporters are just useful tools to allow him to continue to fill his coffers and those of his cronies. Too bad you won’t see the reality of what is in store for you until it is too late because even though it has been purported that Trump just absolutely adores McDonald’s food, his arteries may hold up long enough for him to take a mean McDonald’s shit on Social Security and Medicare.

Maybe, ‘white women’ will be fine since they can go work as whores at the dead man’s whorehouse since I am quite sure that it was profitable and so his relatives will probably keep the whorehouse up and running with a new pimp, but for the rest of us, it’ll be grab a box and try and locate a spot and I hear tell that those spots are at a premium. Not to mention, plagues are about to make a comeback. There is ‘typhus’ among the homeless on Skid Row. There is also ‘hookworm’. Are any of you ready for that? Get ready! Because that is what we are asking for when we continue to laud the likes of what we’ve got running shit at the state level and in Washington. A pimp was all set to head to the Nevada state legislature and we have a flaming sexual predator in the White House who can “Grab ’em by the pussy!” Truth really is stranger than fiction in this here fool’s paradise, this here rich white man’s scheme!

How you can help protect Medicare and Social Security — The Most Revolutionary Act

Originally posted on #Monetary Sovereignty – Mitchell: . It takes only two things to keep people in chains: The ignorance of the oppressed And the treachery of their leaders ============================================================================ You endlessly have been told that Medicare and Social Security Trust funds will, in the near future, run short of money unless benefits are decreased…

via How you can help protect Medicare and Social Security — The Most Revolutionary Act

My belief (which I have stated before) is that there is a new global economic realignment happening and the US is being left out – which is why the conditions of Americans’ lives are deteriorating so rapidly. The fact that the entire US infrastructure is computerized has left the country extremely vulnerable – which makes it extremely difficult to predict which system will collapse first – the energy or the telecommunications grid. – Dr. Stuart Bramhall

Wise words, indeed! And true! Quite frankly, I cannot wait for ALL grids to collapse. That is what is needed because the hypnotized Americans are not going to realize how fucked they are until their smartphones go dead and the lights go out. When they can no longer gas up the SUV, there will be hell to pay as well. They’ll wake the fuck up then. Donald Trump’s administration, just as all previous administrations that raided Social Security and threw in worthless IOUs that I couldn’t even use as decent toilet tissue, is also coming for Social Security.  Social Security and Medicare are not on the point of insolvency. The government prints money out of thin air and can just print more money. It has no problem printing money to throw at the U.S. Military Industrial Complex and yet, we are to believe that no monies can be found for Social Security and Medicare? Don’t believe this bullshit and don’t leave it up to the sick ass seniors to save your Social Security and Medicare because it is always left up to the old and infirm to hobble down the street with pitchforks in hand while clutching walkers and canes at the same time. This will impact US all if we allow Trump and the GOP to get away with lying that Social Security and Medicare are about to go belly up. That is simply not true.

And as the number of those living in poverty climbs, the last remaining safety net programs, such as they are, will be sorely needed especially seeing as how even the United Nations issued a shocking report, though not shocking to me, as to the extent of poverty in the United States which was quickly slammed by the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, has taken umbrage at a new United Nations report that examines entrenched poverty in the United States and calls the number of children living in poverty “shockingly high.” She called the analysis a “misleading and politically motivated document.”

A Washington Post article said that the report, written by U.N. special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights Philip Alston, says the United States tops the developed world with the highest rates of youth poverty, infant mortality, incarceration, income inequality and obesity. He also said that the Trump administration’s policies will deepen poverty.

Let me repeat this part! “The Trump administration’s policies will deepen poverty,” which means that, like I’ve already stated, Trump and the GOP are coming for Social Security and Medicare which will only ‘deepen poverty’ and too many Americans are living in extreme poverty as it is. While congress enjoys designer health care coverage and a great pension for life, the biggest class growth is the ‘poverty class’ and America is fast becoming a 3rd World nation. The situation is so bad that hookworm has been discovered in America again.

The UN study also found 19 out of 55 people tested in Alabama had hookworm. It’s a disease typically found in developing countries, one that was thought to have been eradicated in the US in the 1980s. Hookworm is most common in developing nations in Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America.[2] Areas with poor sanitation, water treatment, and plumbing/sewage infrastructure are especially at risk.  And now, hookworm is also “typically found in the developing country called, ‘America’! For the love of !!!!

What in the world is hookworm? A parasitic nematode worm that inhabits the intestines of humans and other animals. It has hooked mouthparts with which it attaches itself to the wall of the gut, puncturing the blood vessels and feeding on the blood.

And yet Nikki Haley said,

“It is patently ridiculous for the United Nations to examine poverty in America. In our country, the President, Members of Congress, Governors, Mayors, and City Council members actively engage on poverty issues every day. Compare that to the many countries around the world, whose governments knowingly abuse human rights and cause pain and suffering.”

Americans are walking around with hookworm that is ‘most commonly found in developing nations’ and so according to Nikki Haley, “it is patently ridiculous for the United Nations to examine poverty in America?” That skank is a depraved, soulless monster as is anyone who works for the Trump Administration and who condones what Trump stands for. I have never seen the like in all my born days! What the hell is wrong with US when we will sit still for this?

None of you see the writing on the wall? Are you that dense? Are your smartphones and personal assistants that distracting that you can’t see what is right in front of your very eyes? First they came for the seniors and the disabled and then they will come for you! You’d better be understanding this! Your smartphone is not going to pay your rent when robots and automation have taken your jobs. Your personal assistant, Alexa, is not going to be able to house and feed you when you lose your income and Social Security is not there to at least, help out in some small way. Obamacare is on life support and so what are you going to do if Trump and the GOP get their way and destroy Medicare? Ask Siri what to do? Yeah! Get your prescription for hookworm from Siri! Your ass is just going to be dropping worms everywhere and don’t damn well come near me with that shit!

No one in the Trump administration gives a damn about any of us who are not multi-millionaires. The United States would rather pull out of the United Nations Council on Human Rights than listen to reports that gives a clear picture in that the United States is descending into 3rd World conditions. They are making excuses that other countries should be looked at for their human rights abuses and how dare anyone confirm what many of us know and that is that the United States has already descended into 3rd World conditions for too many people, including children. Millions of people are living in deep poverty here in the states. Does that have no meaning for you whatsoever? SIGH! I throw my hands up!

Hillary Clinton, A ‘Nasty Woman’!

trump-and-janet

 

I did not watch this debate just as I did not watch any of the previous debates between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, but I just read that Janet Jackson’s “Nasty” has become wildly popular on Spotify since Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton a, “nasty woman,” while Hillary Clinton was speaking on what she intends to do FOR Social Security. And AmeriKKKans have the goddamn nerve to wonder why they are choosing between Twiddle Dee Foolish and Twiddle Dee Liar? Seriously? No one has of yet said anything about Hillary Clinton’s words pertaining to Social Security. So, I shall recap them here.

“I am on record as saying that we need to put more money in the social security trust fund. “That’s part of my commitment to raise taxes on the wealthy. My social security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald’s – assuming he can’t figure out how to get out of it.” – Hillary Clinton. And because Donald Trump interrupted her and said, “She’s a nasty woman,” let’s forget about the important stuff and concentrate on some name calling? We already know that this farce is as fake as a four dollar bill, so let’s continue to sweat the stupid stuff while ignoring what these yahoos say? Really? We shall surely get exactly what we deserve, either way!

If there is anyone out there that has more than two brain cells operating, think about what Hillary Clinton said. “I am on record as saying that we need to put more money in the social security trust fund. That’s part of my commitment to raise taxes on the wealthy.”

Her dear philandering husband, Bill Clinton BALANCED THE BUDGET BY RAIDING THE SOCIAL SECURITY TRUST FUND BEFORE HE LEFT OFFICE. Bill Clinton did not magically leave office with a surplus that was just lying around. Social Security would be entirely solvent today if the Social Security Trust Fund had been left the hell alone and now, we are to believe that Hillary Clinton, unlike her philandering husband, would actually ADD to the coffers of the Social Security Trust Fund? She fucking can’t take from it because it’s practically busted! Damn near every single past presidential Administration has raided the trust fund and now Hillary Clinton is going to come along and save the day for us all. Yeah! Right! And how many times have taxes been raised on the rich? Crickets are fucking chirping! The rich own this shithole and they are not going to allow taxes to be raised on their ill-gotten gains that are sitting in off-shore tax havens. What is there to tax when the money is not even sitting here in AmeriKKKa? But let us not concentrate on these so obvious lies that Hillary Clinton is spouting, let us concentrate on Trump calling Hillary, a ‘nasty woman’ and let’s go find a song with NASTY in it and make it go viral! I fucking swear, AmeriKKKans continue to outdo themselves in goddamn stupidity, cluelessness and moronic behavior. You useless bunch of yokels are indeed, going to get everything that’s coming to you! And about time, I might add! For the love of!! AGAIN, I just cannot make this shit up!

Bill Clinton’s lock-box plan is nothing more than a scheme to use more than $3 trillion in Social Security surpluses to buy down federal debt. In exchange, the Social Security trust fund gets another $3 trillion worth of IOUs. To be sure, most Americans would rather pay down the debt than use Social Security’s surpluses to fund pork barrel projects. But make no mistake, once that money is spent – to buy down debt or fund new programs – it will not be there to cover Social Security’s long-term liabilities.

And those liabilities are enormous. As most Americans are becoming aware, in 2014 Social Security will begin spending more on benefits than it collects in payroll taxes. Ten years later, its annual deficits will reach $370 billion, and by 2034, when today’s 33-year olds begin to retire, the program will be mired in $800 billion deficits. Over the next 75 years, those deficits total $122 trillion, or $19 trillion after adjusting for inflation.

Social Security is filled with nothing but worthless IOUs that I can’t even wipe my ass with and we are now to believe that Social Security is going to bounce back from almost complete insolvency by Hillary “I am going to raise taxes on the rich {to make Social Security solvent again}” Clinton? Right! And the Klan is going to disband!

Let us all concentrate on this. It should get us through the next 4-8 years!

The Cost of Pumping Peter Piper’s Pecker!

Nothing is more important than pumping that pickled pecker up!

Warning: Pickled pecker plumper

Peckercare paid a pack to pump plenty Peter Pipers’ pickled peckers.
A peck of pickled peckers Peckercare pumped.
If Peckercare paid a pack for pumping pickled peckers,
Who got poked by the pumped pickled peckers that Peckercare pumped?

This is a quite a pickle. Apparently, Peckercare was over-priced for pumping pickled peckers and why is pickled peckers in need of pumping? Now, I understand that people’s peckers are living longer and the pumping mechanism gets puckered out, but to pay double for the pumping of pickled peckers just seems perplexing to me. From what I understand, no one has ever died because their pickled pecker puckered.

Peter doesn’t really NEED a pecker pumper, but Peter’s pecker was pumped to the tune of $172 million. Weee willy, thatsalotsa pumpin’! But get this, Peckercare doesn’t pay for dental work, but Peckercare will pay for Peter Piper’s pecker pumper. So, when Pops pokes you with his pumped pecker, thanks to Peckercare paying double what the going rate is for a pecker pumper, don’t look in Pop’s puckered mouth, his pecker is more pumportant.

Department of Health and Human Services said Medicare, the government health insurance system for seniors, paid nearly 474,000 claims for vacuum erection systems, or VES.

…and just when I thought I’d heard it all…..Peter Piper’s pecker’s pump appears and pisses in my Puffa Puffa Rice cereal. Sorry granpa, but you gotta look elsewhere, this lady ain’t having none of your Peckercare paid for pickled pumped pecker! Fuck off!

Strike ‘Terror’ In the Hearts of Senior Citizens

back_off_social_sec_rect

In a government  shutdown, Social Security checks still go out on time. In an economic  shutdown — if we don’t raise the debt ceiling — they don’t go out on  time,” Obama said. “In a government shutdown, disability benefits still  arrive on time. In an economic shutdown, they don’t.”

Now, let me get this straight. ‘Terror’ has already been struck in the hearts of children who were enrolled in head start programs all across the United States. ‘Terror’ was also struck in the hearts of working mothers who need WIC(Women, Infants and Children Program)to help them feed their hungry babies even though they are working at companies that make billions in profits but refuse to pay them a ‘living wage’ for an honest day’s work. Apparently, this ‘terror’ was not deemed sufficient and we come to the seniors and the disabled.

Uh…AARP…where are you when the seniors need you? Poor nana and grandpa worked hard for so many years and now it is THEIR turn to get thrown underneath the ‘government shutdown tug-of-war debt ceiling show down bus’. The Obama Administration has played a ‘trump’ card in attempting to strike ‘terror’ in the hearts of poor seniors and disabled people by stating that there will be no checks mailed out next month. Seniors, Obama is saying to you that he is going to use his leverage against you in a ploy to get what he wants and that your hard work and sacrifice never counted for much. Just because you paid into Social Security your entire working life does not mean that you can now rest easy in your golden years because you are to be used as a pawn in this back and forth struggle for the ultimate power in Washington. Those of you who are disabled and unable to even care for yourselves because of traumatic brain injury, well, that is just too bad. You need to get your act together and realize that just because you are unable to pull your weight, your disability benefits are going to be held hostage in this debt ceiling crisis bullshit because Obama did not get his way with bombing Syria, but he damn sure will get his way with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act(PPACA). Obama said, “by golly if I have to deny the sick, their disability benefits to get them health care, then I will do just that!” “I am going to deprive you of a roof over your head so that I can make you feel better!” “Take this placebo, but don’t call me in the morning because that is when I’m golfing!” And even though businesses have been given an additional year before they must comply with the PPACA, individuals are not to have this option. By all means, we must ignore the fact that during Obama’s first two years in office, the democrats had control of both the House and the Senate. They should have put that to good use, but it was not to be. The ‘pee party’ was voted in and that was that.

Now, we have ‘terror’ here and ‘terror’ there, ‘terror, ‘terror’ everywhere! It is quite obvious that no one is to be spared when this ship sinks. And it looks like women and children and seniors and the disabled go first, no not into the lifeboats, but into the cold, frigid waters of a made-up debt ceiling crisis. Yes, I said, ‘made-up because has the military shut down? No! Have drone strikes ceased? No! Is the CIA still training rebels? Yes! Has the NSA shut down? No! Is Guantanamo closed? No! Are all the troops out of Afghanistan? No! However, if you are in the military and you die, no telling how long you will have to wait for the funds to be made available for your military burial. Your country can get nothing else out of you, so you are of no use. Join the children who were in head start. Join the mothers who need the WIC program and join the seniors and the disabled.

Is a clear picture developing here? Is the writing on the wall? The most vulnerable in society are once again to pay the price for the disgusting and immoral behavior demonstrated by those who were voted in to represent them. Some representation, eh?

“Here’s to terrorizing kids and making anxious seniors fret.

I’ll stomp on all the poor and destroy the safety net.

They’ll all be held for ransom ’til I get what I decree.

And discard them at a whim like some smelly ole debris.

Don’t mess with me, I’m not the one and everyone should know,

I’m the bully of this playground; I’m the lowest of the low.

Congress leave my shit alone; you’re trying my fucking patience.

Initiate my healthcare act; protect these goddamn patients!”

Barack ‘Insane’ Obama

Note:You do not ‘protect’ someone by first destroying them! For years, there have been so many attempts to weaken Social Security to the point of destroying it. For decades, each Administration has raided the Social Security Surplus and spent it as if it were their own personal credit card. They’ve even attempted to balance the budget on what they’ve ‘borrowed’ from Social Security. Social Security would be solvent if the government thugs had left the program alone, but no, like I stated, they used it for their own nefarious purposes and now with an aging population retiring or about to retire, this is a new attempt to get rid of this program that people paid into their entire working lives and because assholes pissed the money away, the people who paid into it are now to be told that your money is not there and there is not a damn thing that they can do about it. Make no mistake, this is not about a fiscal cliff or a government shutdown, or even an ‘economic shutdown’, this is about gutting the hell out of programs that were put in place to help those who paid into it. If the fight over the  PPACA was all this was about, then why did the focus quickly turn to shutting off the program that is keeping some of the most vulnerable citizens, the elderly, afloat? Why not curtail military spending? Why not shutdown the drone program? Why not defund the spying program, the NSA? Why not shutter Guantanamo? Why not cease funding to U.S. funded ‘terrorists’? Why not shut down the CIA’s program of training terrorists?

The U.S. government continued to kick the Social Security can down the road, knowing that it had been wiping out the program’s trust fund while at the same time being well aware of when the babyboomers would start reaching retirement age. So, it is now time to make those who are innocent, pay for the shenanigans of those who were elected to do the right thing with our tax dollars and since they didn’t, again, the innocent must be forced to pay.

Two Dirty Words:Liberal & Entitlements

liberalss medicarecrap

Politically speaking, I consider myself to be, liberal. Damn..shut my mouth!! I said a..shhh..dirty word. Yes, it seems that we cannot be ‘liberal’ anymore and here I thought that ‘liberal’ meant that I was broad minded, open to new ideas. So when and why did ‘liberal’ become a dirty word? When ‘conservatives’ said so. Or should I say, when the ‘christian conservative family values party’ said so. You know the one, they’re always in the news for acting more broadminded to the point that they’re open to new ‘affairs’ than any actual ‘liberal’ I’ve ever met. You see, I may be liberal in my political thinking, but in every other aspect of my life, I am totally conservative. I dress conservatively. My social ethics are conservative, not that I’m endlessly yelling about how someone else should behave in their bedroom or behind any other closed door. What someone else does has absolutely nothing to do with me, just so long as they are not infringing on my right to..well..be. You see, I believe that we can co-exist regardless of what our sexual orientation is. Live and let live. It’s that simple.

Next up, we have the other really dirty word that’s been bandied about quite abit. That mean old ‘entitlement’ word. Now, back in the day, when I thought of an entitlement, I thought of someone who had never worked for anything and just had everything handed to them. Sort of like when a parent hands a business down to the kids who never really learned a work ethic. They were just handed the keys to the business, a handy Trust Fund was set up for them and they were on their way. Entitled to everything a handed down fortune could bring. I never equated ‘entitlement’ with something that someone worked hard for and actually put into a system, a sort of ‘pool’ that is to enable those in their golden years to have something to fall back on if one of life’s blips happened. I never thought of Social Security and Medicare as entitlements especially since anyone who has worked since January 1, 1937 has been paying into Social Security. Not to forget that Medicare(implemented into law in 1965) is also paid for by payroll deductions. Again, taken out of our paycheck(for the more dense among us).

I guess now that many Baby Boomers are set to retire, it is time to shame them into thinking they’re not ‘entitled’ to that money that they’ve worked hard for and that should be there to help them out in their retirement. So instead, the government wants to increase the full retirement age to 70, hoping you die at your desk so you don’t collect on that ‘entitlement’ that was taken out of each and every one of your paychecks for 30, 35, 40 or more years. Just because almost each Administration used the Social Security Surplus as if it were their own personal credit card and raided it, why should you have a problem with that? It was only YOUR money! After all, entitlements are for those who were born with a silver spoon in their mouth and we call them ‘Trust Fund babies’ not ‘Baby Boomers. Right? Wrong!
