Top corporations are sitting on MORE CASH than ever.
The "we have no money" chant on the TV News -- means; "we do not have the WILL to take the money."
We have the WILL to invade Iraq and Afghanistan under false pretenses. We have the WILL to covertly help some group in Libya overthrow YET ANOTHER
TYRANT -- who is so awful, we used to pay him to torture our prisoners of war. LINK
WE approve torture -- and lying to invade a country. And LOOK -- it just so happens that Libya is the BEST place to get Oil in the Middle East that
doesn't buy boat loads of weapons or want to keep trading in US dollars like our good friends in Saudi Arabia. THEY are not a tyranny, you see,
because,... we are talking about Libya,... [cue people in nice suits sounding reasonable to explain it to us]. Libya TORTURES people, you know? Like
the WMDs that Iraq USED to have because Donald Rumsfeld sold them to Saddam. See how evil Saddam was -- I mean Gaddaffy?
>> But getting back to the IMPOSSIBILITY of having money to pay for people NOT getting tortured or blown up...
The rules of business are merely
so that businesses can operate without destroying each other. Without a Federal Government -- you have no currency to trade and keep track of who gets
what -- and without Law Enforcement, you can't penalize those who cheat, or have corporations sue each other over Patent disputes all day.
Don't you think it costs MORE money to fly someone to Libya and torture them than it does to give them Welfare or Unemployment benefits? MAYBE,, we
could be really smart, and do a secret deal with Syria -- everyone who is really hard up, would pretend to join Al Qaeda -- the CIA would ship them to
a camp in Syria (as usual), and when they got there, they'd just be let go. Syria would then split the money they get from the Black Ops budget with
the "terrorist sympathizer" and the Hard Up American would keep their mouth shut.
A future conversation for Welfare POWs;
"Sure, we pulled out his fingernails and used a drill on his kneecap today...."
"We certainly appreciate your attention to detail and work ethic here at the CIA."
"No problem -- Mr. Homeless Guy was really forthcoming today -- and he informed us that Gaddaffy had spies everywhere."
"Um, Mr. Homeless used to live in Minnesota."
"Right. Gaddaffy had spies in Minnesota -- trailing Jessy Ventura."

But INSTEAD of addressing this problem, perhaps by raising the COST of unemployment insurance on corporations who pay almost no taxes (and in the case
of some Oil and Banks -- get more BACK than they spend), the Koch Brother's Governor, decides to find another RULE to exclude people from the
We INCREASED costs of government by going to war and DECREASE revenue by giving away tax money to the top 2% -- of COURSE there is a revenue
shortfall. Were businesses collapsing during the '90s? No? Then why did we trade reasonable prosperity, for "Oh my God -- the world is going to
end!" Just so someone who already has a Lear Jet can have 3% more to put into his Chinese stock portfolio?
If we don't stand up for these people -- there won't be anyone left to stand up for us when we are kicked out of our homes. And unless you are a
multi-millionaire and CONNECTED to the abusers of this system who receive Corporate Welfare -- don't kid yourself; YOU are on the menu.
