Class Warfare: Declare It!
Rush 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.Posted by tat at November 20, 2003 07:10 PM
