Class Warfare: Declare It!

money_icon.jpgRush will not go to jail. Michael Jackson will not got to jail. Ken Lay will not go to jail. They are the privileged, the upper class that rule this country, and the rules do not apply to them. Class, not racism, is the true division in this country.

Look around. If Bush were not a child of privilege, he wouldn't be allowed to manage a grocery store, much less the country. O.J.'s trial and verdict were not about skin color, but about how money buys (in)justice. The mutual fund thieves just now becoming news are just some more in a seemingly continuous line of corporate and financial crimes to come to light. Let me make a prediction: none of them will go to jail, either.

Police busting down doors and ignominious public arrests for possessing a couple of joints or shoplifting bologna are only for me and you. We have this residual servility to the alpha male in our monkey brains that somehow shames us into not demanding equality, even when the crimes of the rich are exponentially more egregious.

And the bastards know this, which is why they cry foul whenever a prominent liberal politician tries to point it out. It's about time we give as good as we take and stop this boot-licking. Arrest Lay. Arrest Rush. IMPEACH Bush.

Laugh while you can, monkey-boy.

Impeach Bush on what charges? And what good would that do anyway? Clinton was impeached - he lied under oath - which, last time I heard was ilegal (purgery, I think they call it!) and nobody did anything! His was a gross and flagrant misuse of power and nobody cared. Impeach Bush for what?

You're right. People with money get away with stuff you and I would hang over. I see all kinds of, and have been a personal victim of, the government doing whatever the hell it wants without recourse. And you think we have recourse and can use the judicial system to get justice? Yeah, right. Don't fool yourself. Sure, there are flaws in the system. Frankly, it's a mess. But don't forget - everytime you get the government to pay for something or police something, you're setting up for more of the same. Sure it pisses you off, but you have to be careful in thinking what should be done about it all. :):)
