Happy Turkey Day


 

It’s funny how we humans manufacture history. We all grew-up being told that sometime in the 1620’s these wonderful  Christian Pilgrims came to America, that was before any border walls, to practice their love for baby Jesus without being persecuted.

So! they saw some G-dless “Injuns” and decided that before they and other  Europeans slaughtered untold numbers of diverse people that constituted the Native American, that they should come over and sample some of their cuisine.  Well it was a smash, not quite like an office -Xmas party that everyone gets shit faced and end up in bed, but a hootenanny nonetheless.

We know how this tale ended, we took their land and they got casinos–win win.

Ok, so this is not what we learned in school, but it’s closer to reality, no?

        Yes it’s obscene, and all too common! I’m getting screwed very much the same way, they just got back to me after I said I wouldn’t do any more for them till they paid me. They claimed (as they have in the past..) that they changed the way they process pay, and oh-my we hadn’t realized the error! riiiiight! I actually forwarded this very petition to the 1 guy sticking his nose in it, my way of saying yes I know who you “people” are, -what- you “people” are! liars/cheats/thieves!

    Hiya Realm, About the recent discussion here at the Realm of the takeover of society by corporations.

    Recently I was checking out some TV shows that might be worth binge watching. One that ended recently that I was thinking I might watch was “Parks and Recreation” which debuted in 2009 and ended this year.

    I viewed the pilot episode.

    “Parks and Recreation” character Ron Swanson says “I don’t want this Parks Department to build any parks because I don’t believe in government. I think that all government is a waste of taxpayer money. My dream is to have the park system privatized and run entirely for profit by corporations.”

    Now this was back in 2009 and everyone probably thought this was really funny back then. But today I am not laughing. Today this libertarian mentality is now all too frighteningly real and privatization is happening before our very eyes and no one is doing anything about it.

    Try as I may I can’t seem to get away from this.

    “We Energies [stupid, stupid name] offers a look at its newly converted natural gas plant in the Menomonee Valley [just west of downtown Milwaukee near Miller Park.] After 50 years producing energy with coal, the plant has converted to natural gas, which allows the company to meet more stringent air quality regulations. ”

    Oh, yeah, they fought it every step of the way and it’s the same song-and-dance surrounding the Oak Creek facility south of Milwaukee..$$$ First !!….8-)
