Not to distract from Clusters latest topic, but this afternoon I thought that a discussion about Senator Corker injecting himself into the V.W. / Union debate was unprecedented and shamelessly brazen. It seems that an utter lack of awareness and a cavalier attitude towards future consequences is spreading quickly among the more conservative minded. Who exactly is Corker working for? Who’s interests is he promoting? It’s not those that assemble automobiles! Lets be honest, unions are an impediment. A stick in the spokes of profit. Sort of like the FDA protecting consumers. It’s a logical conclusion as to why there is so much animosity about the minimum wage. Labor in any form, at a certain level is an inconvenience to pure capitalism. Marx was right when he said that if all one has to “market” is labor, then it’s no wonder that exploitation is part of a business plan. (Admittedly Marx was referring to physical labor, the 19th century being the birth of industrialization.) But my point was made.
Cluster painted the Koch Bros as innocents, unjustly accused of (what is essentially) anti-American behavior and distracting us, dear readers, by comparing them to more liberal political contributors. Payola is Payola. They are equally open to criticism and exposure but in this case, the difference between left and right is the difference between serving selfish self-interest and serving the common good. Morlocks and the Eloi. Lobbyists writing legislation. Citizens United. Max Headroom being gobsmacked on November the 6th, 2012. Yeah baby! Not to digress, but another example of this obliviousness is Chris Christie. Talk about a psychotic break! When conservatives return to being actual conservatives, when they are capable of being big enough to go through a functional, productive self -examination then they will be able to be taken seriously again. Worthy of consideration. Reince Priebus, the mouth piece of an opportunistic ideological dead body should be reduced to ash himself . While he promises to burn said bodies with all of the regret, shame and phony enlightened sincerity of Alexander DeLarge with his eyes wired open.
These moneyed enabled power guys. Throughout history they think they can buy time, rule forever and build monuments that prove singular immortality. When in fact they are building tourist attractions for the future and subject matter for history books. Beguiled by narcissistic reflection. Thinking that they (we) have been successful in a shell game where the object is camouflaging free will and challenging the gods about ideas of our own. Is it a bluff? There is only one way to find out.
