Ex-PMs join Lib campaign to attack Harper economic cred; Tories call it desperate

April 8-10, 2011 -- USA Government shutdown priorities unmask who really rules over us : Trading Corporations of the commodities markets

as Stephen Harper and Michael Ignatieff take their campaigns west today in what the Liberal leader is calling an election about democracyn ...

Although federal offices that process new Social Security applications, national parks, and mine inspections would be shut down in a closing down of the government over the budget impasse, rest assured that those government functions that benefit the wealthy elite who run America will not be affected. And, in some cases, the oligarchs will actually benefit from the closure of some federal oversight agencies.

Radioactive fallout monitoring from the stricken Fukushima reactor complex in Japan will be adversely affected, with the Food and Drug Administration not being fully staffed to monitor the radioactivity in food imports from Asia. Schools on Indian reservations will close their doors.

American-led wars for oil and gas will continue to kill civilians, including women, children, and the elderly in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. U.S. service members will continue to die for Exxon Mobil, BP, and Chevron Texaco.

The Federal Reserve, which is not funded by Congress, will continue to engage in their secretive financial alchemy for the benefit of the financial elite.

Transportation Security Administration goons will still be rubbing their hands on passenger's sex organs and be running children through millimeter wave scanners for the pederastic pleasures of creepy-looking crew cut and obese weirdos.

Federal courts will continue to sentence Americans for mostly non-violent drug-related crimes to the federal gulag prison industrial system.

A note of appreciation from the rich

Let's be honest: you'll never win the lottery.

On the other hand, the chances are pretty good that you'll slave away at some miserable job the rest of your life. That's because you were in all likelihood born into the wrong social class. Let's face it you're a member of the working caste. Sorry!

As a result, you don't have the education, upbringing, connections, manners, appearance, and good taste to ever become one of us. In fact, you'd probably need a book the size of the yellow pages to list all the unfair advantages we have over you. That's why we're so relieved to know that you still continue to believe all those silly fairy tales about "justice" and "equal opportunity" in America.

Of course, in a hierarchical social system like ours, there's never been much room at the top to begin with. Besides, it's already occupied by us and we like it up here so much that we intend to keep it that way. But at least there's usually someone lower in the social hierarchy you can feel superior to and kick in the teeth once in a while. Even a lowly dishwasher can easily find some poor slob further down in the pecking order to sneer and spit at. So be thankful for migrant workers, prostitutes, and homeless street people.

Always remember that if everyone like you were economically secure and socially privileged like us, there would be no one left to fill all those boring, dangerous, low-paid jobs in our economy. And no one to fight our wars for us, or blindly follow orders in our totalitarian corporate institutions. And certainly no one to meekly go to their grave without having lived a full and creative life. So please, keep up the good work!

Of course, life could be different. Society could be intelligently organized to meet the real needs of the general population. You and others like you could collectively fight to free yourselves from our domination. But you don't know that. In fact, you can't even imagine that another way of life is possible. And that's probably the greatest, most significant achievement of our system robbing you of your imagination, your creativity, your ability to think and act for yourself.

So we'd truly like to thank you from the bottom of our heartless hearts. Your loyal sacrifice makes possible our corrupt luxury; your work makes our system work. Thanks so much for "knowing your place" without even knowing it!

You also probably don't have the same greedy, compulsive drive to possess wealth, power, and prestige that we have.

And even though you may sincerely want to change the way you live, you're also afraid of the very change you desire, thus keeping you and others like you in a nervous state of limbo.

So you go through life mechanically playing your assigned social role, terrified what others would think should you ever dare to "break out of the mold."

We're also very pleased that many of you still embrace the "work ethic,"

even though most jobs in our economy degrade the environment, undermine your physical and emotional health, and

basically suck your one and only life right out of you.

We obviously don't know much about work, but we're sure glad you do!
