WE’RE NOT YOUR BITCH ANYMORE!on October 11, 2012 at 11:32 am
Greetings from Calico Blackie!
Truth be told, we’re a nation of hypocrites that profess Christian Values the whole while we’re kicking “the little guy.”
The sad part is, we’re kicking ourselves.
We’re taught “Blessed are the meek” on Sunday, and then go out into the world on Monday and shaft the meek to death and say they deserve their screwing because they’re weak, lazy or stupid.
We might warm up to the occasional “Cinderella Story” of the lousy sports team that is suddenly thrust into the public eye because they’re having an extraordinarily good year, or the “local boy makes good” stories you see in the papers…..
But in reality….
We like the “winners” no matter how they became winners. We admire the most brutal football team, the richest pricks, the biggest winners, the handsomest men, the prettiest women.
And, we reward them.
Why? Because nobody likes to be seen as a “loser.” We kick losers.
Shows such as “Honey Boo Boo” are a good example of this type of mentality. People will watch a show such as this one and smugly say “Look at those losers. We’re not like them.”
But in reality, people watch these shows to reassure themselves that there are still people out there that are bigger losers than themselves. It’s easier to kick the unfortunate than it is to admit that your life has become a daily meaningless struggle and that you’re nothing more than a piece of meat to be thrown away by the machine when you’ve outlived your usefulness.
It’s easier to look down and kick the people who are one rung below you on the ladder of life than it is to look up and have to kiss the asses of those higher up the ladder than you are because you’re a loser too.
It’s easier to look down and say “Those people made poor choices in life, that’s why they’re poor” instead of stopping to examine your own place on the ladder, knowing full well that the people above you are saying the exact same thing about YOU.
Admit it. The mentality in this country dictates, if you’re not on top, YOU’RE A LOSER.
It’s time to change the mentality. We should all have ambition, but we’ve misplaced our definition of ambition to mean: We should all kill ourselves climbing the ladder in soul crushing labor in a headlong rush to accumulate more “stuff.”
Junk we don’t need. Junk we surround ourselves with to assure ourselves that we are not losers.
Buying junk that just makes the rich richer while we all become our very own version of Honey Boo Boo.
We bought the lie.
When you find yourself feeling superior to someone less fortunate than you, ask yourself “WHY?”
Is it because you work harder? Is it because you were lucky at times in your life? Is it because your parents worked hard to give you an advantageous start in life?
Or, is it because you don’t want to think of yourself as a loser and need someone, or a whole group/race/religion of someones to feel superior to?
Is it because you’re unhappy with YOUR life and feel the need to look down on someone while you waste your life away?
YOU ONLY GET ONE SHOT AT LIFE.
I hope this makes you stop and think.
When you make fun of, and kick the downtrodden, you are really kicking yourself and contributing to your own lack of self-worth. By helping those below you on the ladder of life, you are helping yourself advance morally, socially, and mentally.
At the end of the day, you could look back and say: “I wasn’t a loser.”
So, that being said….
Wal-Mart workers are beginning to wise-up. They’ve gone on strike in at least a dozen locations throughout the country.
Don’t kick them.
When you shop at WalMart, you are directly contributing to many of the problems that are facing our country. Offshoring. Poverty, Lower quality consumer goods. Poison pet food.
The list is endless.
IT IS GOD-DAMNED UNAMERICAN TO SHOP AT WALMART.
But, you can buy cheap American flags there (Made in China)!
SUPPORT THE STRIKERS AND DON’T LISTEN TO THE PROPAGANDA MACHINE OF THE 1%.
Expect Mal-Wart to take this seriously. They employ more of the weak, poor and downtrodden in the US than any other company, and they are very effective at keeping them that way.
Wal-Mart makes so much profit, that they could afford to pay every worker there at least $10/hour and it would only raise the average cost of a shopping trip there by $0.50. It would be only pennies to the item to pay a better wage to their workers.
They don’t want workers making living wages, they want maximum profits at any cost.
The typical Wal-Mart has their employees receiving $450,000 in food stamps every year.
They underpay their employees, then pass along the cost of their workers not being able to afford food and basic costs of living to taxpayers in the form of social welfare programs. But since it doesn’t show up on the sales receipt, they don’t care.
YOU’RE NOT PAYING A LOWER PRICE. YOU’RE GETTING SCREWED IN THE LONG RUN WHILE THE WALTON FAMILY GETS EVEN RICHER.
After all, the six richest members of the family that owns Walmart have a combined worth greater than the entire lowest 30% of the USA.
They did not get that wealthy by being nice to workers.
They did not get that wealthy by being patriotic and by supporting our Country.
They got that wealthy by exploiting the system and by exploiting you.
They got that wealthy by destroying communities and bringing POVERTY to YOUR neighborhood.
It’s time to stop these blood-engorged parasites from feeding even more on OUR blood.
…burn them to the ground. All of them.
And on the ashes, let America grow anew.
Let the people who used to be on the lower rung of the ladder working at shit-houses such as WalMart find jobs in American industry.
Let them find jobs in American stores.
Let them buy and live in houses built by Americans using American made materials.
SUPPORT THE STRIKERS
SUPPORT YOUR COUNTRY. BE A PATRIOT.
BOYCOTT WAL-MART UNTIL THEY ARE FORCED TO BECOME AMERICANS OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE.
Don’t be a cheerleader for the Chinese Government by shopping there.
Don’t be a sucker.
Wal-Mart and the rest of the 1% are NOT your friends.
They don’t give a damn about you. You’re just a piece of exploitable trash to them and they look at us like we look at “Honey Boo Boo” and her family.
Work together for change.
The encampments might be gone, but the Movement and activism lives on.
OCCUPY WALL STREET
