I was just looking at CD rates on bank of america site and thought of something. i was noticing how a lot of their site models are asian and wondered
if i heard it correctly in the recent past that china had acquired bank of america. i've read different things... so i'm not sure about that.
recently i was bored and did something to amuse myself.
i was given a tiki torch around the 4th of july last year...and it is red and blue with white stars, but it was made in china. I thought I should
paint it because all that faded and was looking kinda crappy and it's just a bamboo torch so it wouldn't be like spray painting a car or
anything...and while looking at it and thinking of the irony of it being a torch for the 4th cook outs and what-not, it's made in china...so a light
bulb went on... I'll paint it red with yellow stars and i couldn't stop giggling while i was doing this. i put a big yellow star on the cap and four
stars in a semi circle on the side and put the gold "made in china" sticker by the stars and sent a picture to my mother to see what she thought...
it actually looks pretty good, i think.
Ok.. I'm a cynic and a bit of a punk at times so i thought it was hilarious... it's concept art. It's my ode to the economy.
So I was wondering... bank of america is one of the US biggest banks. It got big when joined with one of the italian banks early 1900s and it's got a
strange history behind it that really makes me scratch my head but i will have to read more into it.
WHAT IF... china really bought bank of america. Wouldn't they technically be entitled to change the name? What are they trying to say with these
asian woman all over their site? I think it's kinda funny. Are they trying to stick it to the man?... rubbing our faces in it?
So lets say we wake up one day and go to the bank and see that they changed their sign and now it's BANK OF CHINA.
There would be RIOTS... People all over the place would be screaming how communists were taking over.
and it's just a company...we have plenty of companies with china in the name but most of them are restaurants, but change bank of America to bank of
CHINA and see what happens.
I wouldn't be happy about riots but at least it would expose people with some very short thought processing.
I just want to see what would happen. I'm mean hell... it beats bombs being dropped on your head.
It's just a damn name...and now maybe it's chinese people who own it...so?
I think it's funny as hell because those old time swindlers got us into this crap... and to try to get out of it they send their own to go fight
wars. They damn well ought to be able to handle "Bank of China" without dropping a damn bomb or forming a coup, but there's only one way to find
We can't make bank of America change it's name for some laughs but we can all exercise civil disobedience.
We can show them what we think about loyalty to the symbols on the currencies that enslave us... when what is important are people, their lives and
We can take them down to bare bones by legally avoiding taxation. We can refuse to bow to their ideals without feeling guilty or like a traitor,
because being a traitor to a flag is nothing compared to being a traitor to other living beings who've done you no wrong... and that's what they
do... and expect YOU to do as well, just to survive.
You should only be combative towards those who do you harm... and that is the industry, the economy, the men of money and power... they stacked it
against us all to squeeze out every last drop and when we're all dried out, they'll send our own to kill people they don't even know.
I read a comment on a site that said "destroying the rich will not help the poor"...what?
If they are rich and greedy... then yes and many rich people are very greedy. it's how they got rich. They're greedy and scared and the only thing
that makes them feel strong is to count their money. They keep others from having what they need... only to get richer and then others do
that saying is like saying... destroying the rapists won't help the potential rape victims....what?
putting out the fire won't help those who are about to get burned....say what?
yeah... someone will always get to the top, but in the here and now, we are ripe for a grand lesson that history will not forget anytime soon... and
more greedy will rise... sure, but the age of non renewable oil will be over and if mankind survives, we will not ever forget this. We will get more
enlightened... or we will die as a species. We're out of excuses at this point. that is why this is happening NOW... welcome to the age of
information. things will never be the same, pecking order or not... and if the next phase is not the end all- be all, we can still keep fighting and
trying... but in the here and now, change is due and change will happen. like it or not.
