Obama reelection. Pardon me for intruding on the perkiness

The Obama reelection will change little.  This was a pretend election. The presidential candidates pretended to engage on issues.

Neither candidate said anything substantive about the deficit or how to end the recession. Both studiously avoided any mention of enforcing existing criminal laws against obviously guilty banksters. Not a word was said about the serious menace of the drug cartels and the Eurozone crisis.

Little if anything will change.

Election 2012: How the winner will destroy America

Whoever the “winner” happens to be is ultimately irrelevant. They do not count. They are mascots. Middle management cronies running through the motions to distract the masses while enacting the policies of their superiors. They are fry cooks serving greasy overpriced democracy with no real sustenance. What does matter, though, is what comes next. I’m sorry to say that the idea that one man will do less damage than the other is a naïve sentiment. Democrat? Republican? Obama? Romney? The crimes and calamities wrought will be exactly the same. Take a look into my crystal ball and see the future. Here is how the winner will destroy America…

Bill Black: Wall Street urges Obama to commit the great betrayal

Only a Democrat can make it politically safe for Republicans who hate the safety net to unravel it (a process that would occur over a number of years) by legitimizing the claim that the safety net must be cut. Obama may not intend to unravel the safety net. He may have been convinced by Wall Street that it is necessary to begin to unravel the safety net in order to save it. But the result would be to declare open season on the safety net by legitimizing the false Republican memes that the safety net is unsustainable and harms the nation.

    $6 BILLION BULLSHIT FESTIVAL.

    Well tomorrow hurricane
    Sandy will slide from our consciousness, all that mayhem and misery
    will disappear from the “babbling brook of bullshit”, commonly
    called the mainstream media, there are more important things to
    report. Tomorrow is the culmination of the biggest, most expensive
    ever, Crooks and Liars competition. Yes, $6 billion, I’ll repeat
    that, $6 billion, spent on helping the American people to decide
    whether they should vote for Coke or Pepsi. Each contestant in this
    Crooks and Liars competition claiming that if the American people
    vote for the other, the world will collapse and the Apocalypse will
    be upon us all.

    Once the decision is made, and the new mouthpiece of
    corporate imperialism takes his place on the throne at the White
    House, no matter who, the same old, same old shit will continue.
    There will be wars dotted around, which we will be told is our way of
    bombing democracy into those people fortunate to be picked by our
    imperial masters. Most of those chosen, will of course have oil
    and/or gas on their land, but that doesn’t influence our decision to
    bomb them into democracy. Poverty will continue to grow across the
    world, while the corporate world continues to get richer and richer.
    The army of parasites will sink deeper and deeper into the froth of
    opulence, while the vast majority sink further into the mire of
    poverty and deprivation. Then in four years when the shine has worn
    off the residing Pope of Plutocracy, the merry-go-round will start up
    again, the billions of dollars will once again flow, and the
    spectacle of the Crooks and Liars competition will repeat itself. And
    so the cycle goes on, our reward for allowing ourselves to be screwed
    big time is this very expensive illusion of change, every four or five
    years depending on where you live. Can you think of a better way to
    shape our society?

    It may seem that way to you, being a white straight male. For minorities, and women, there was clearly a choice on the table. One had a plan in progress (dislike it or not) for helping the economy. The other wanted to go back to the plan Bush had. Neither were great, but there was a choice. To claim there wasn’t betrays the bourgeoisie life you live…

    • I want Rule of Law in this country applied to everyone including those like Jon Corsines and other banksters. If Rule of Law is not applied equally to all – something Obama is studiously not doing – then everything else, in my opinion, becomes a secondary issue.
