One American's Rage Spills Over: Shut Your Mouth & Start Fighting These Political Parasites

Warning: NSFW, for the weak of heart, look away...

Submitted by Thad Beversdorf via First Rebuttal blog,

I was shocked today by the absolute gaul of the Fed releasing a statement about Net Worth in America reaching record levels.  Now I get that they are under extreme pressure to sell the story that everything is rainbows and butterflies.  But surely they understand that working class Americans are going along with the story because they really don’t have any say in our nation’s policies anymore.  That doesn’t mean they want it thrown in their faces that the Fed has spent 6 years now inflating the wealth of the top 10% so much that it actually lifts the total wealth of the nation’s citizens to record highs.

The ugly reality is that the bottom 80% of Americans experienced none of that gain.  That’s right a big ole goose egg.  And so when the Fed via its ass pamper boy, Steve Liesman, start banging on about the fact that some sliver of society is being handed extraordinary wealth while the working class has lost 40% of their net worth since 2007, well a big fuck you right back at ya bub!  The Fed is very aware that the bottom 80% of Americans own less than 5% of US equity markets.  And so the Fed is very aware that its manipulation of stock prices such that it creates immense unearned wealth to those in the markets doesn’t reach the bottom 80%.  So why celebrate the results of the stock market price manipulation??

It is embarrassing that our policymakers are either that inconsiderate or that stupid to celebrate such a brutal dislocation between the haves and have nots.  I don’t know what one can even say about the Fed making a celebratory statement like that today.  It is somewhat beyond words.  And really paints the picture as to how little thought goes into the lives and well being of the bottom 80%.

Just to give you something to compare and contrast the situation of the bottom 80% here in the US to counter the Fed’s celebration today.  I want you to think about how lucky we are not being in one of the PIIGS nations of Europe.  These are the nations that are essentially bankrupt and just hanging on by the kindness of the Troika.  Glad we’re not there right??  Well allow me to show you a chart published by CNN Money some 8 months ago.

Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 12.47.37 PM

So there it is.  While the average net worth of Americans is 4th in the world pulled up by the top 10%, the median net worth of Americans comes in the 19th spot.  Yep, behind Spain, Italy and Ireland so 3 of the 5 PIIGS nations.  Meaning the bottom 80% in these broke ass barely hanging on nations have more wealth than the bottom 80% of us here in America.

So I’d like to ask the Fed, is it that you just hate the working class here in America and thus like to torment them or are you truly that stuck up your own asses that you just cannot see the light?  Celebrating the fact you did today is downright nasty you lowlife scoundrel pieces of shit.  It’s akin to a family showing off and celebrating a new born baby at the funeral of another family’s child.  It is just a very ugly thing to do.  Even if it wasn’t meant to be malicious it looks very much like a giant FU.

And for Americans, why, please god tell me why is it that Americans are so willing to be shit on for so long without so much as a hint of standing up to these monsters that steal our wealth and pass it around their political class.  Having grown up in Canada while all of my relatives were here in the US I was intrigued by the States.  I used to think of Americans as an incredibly admirable people.  The type of people that are confident, strong, intelligent and command respect.  I really truly did.  But having lived here now since 2001, what I see is a people that have rolled over on our backs.  As long as we get a few belly rubs once in a while we’re happy to live without a hint of respect.  We seem fine with being demeaned, controlled, robbed, enslaved and yes shit on by our political ‘superiors’.

Is the real Giant Con the ideal American?  Was it just a made up concept sent out to the rest of the world in hopes we could instill a fear simply by portraying the notion of a truly formidable American?  I really don’t have the answer.  Perhaps at some point in time Americans really were a force to be reckoned with.  And if that is the case then what a sad story to be told to the world 100 years from now.  How a nation got fat, lazy, complacent, perhaps stupid and definitely lost all sense of self esteem.

Imagine the founding fathers looking down on all of this.  Hell imagine those who fought on the beaches of Normandy looking down at what America has become.  Knowing that they sacrificed everything just to hand the nation over to a group of foreign sociopaths.  Imagine those men having to see that Americans no longer have any sense of dignity other than to yell loudly that “we are still great” kind of like that drunk in the corner that wants to fight everyone but can’t seem to find his legs to even stand up from his stool.  How incredibly disheartening it would be for those WWII soldiers to see us now.

We have become nothing but a host to a group of political parasites that have thrived on our wealth and our strength.  And they’ve watched us slowly die over time growing weaker and weaker.  Less able to find the strength to uphold the duties entrusted to us.  God, what a sad fucking story we are.  Thanks Steve Liesman for rubbing shit in our eyes today.  Hope you got a few clicks.

And for those of you that think I’m an ass for being so harsh on us, well stuff it.  Get up off your stool you lazy drunk, shut your damn mouth and start fighting these political parasites like a damn man, like a damn American.  I’m not the one stealing your retirement, stealing your income, stealing your wealth and stealing your freedom all while making myself wealthy and exonerated from all the laws that would put your ass in prison.     In short I ain’t your enemy.  If you’re mad by what I said then do something more constructive than calling me an asshole.  Capiche??  Good.

Everyone looks at the generation who fight in the revolutionary war as heroes, but I assert the bigger heroes were the people who came before. Those who risked a journey to a new land carrying almost nothing with them. Those people who took their ignorance and dependence and turned it into enlightenment and self-sufficiency. It was in these nameless men and women where the true sparks of freedom came. These precursors. In many ways, the revolutionary war was already won before it began thanks to these people. Get off your ass and be a precursor. Take risks NOW, that will make the battle your children and grandchildren fight winnable.

best rant i've read in weeks.

but wasn't "I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!" written in 1976?

nothing has changed since then but the number of commas on US debt and top 10% net worth values.

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. ...We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. ...In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons...who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”

 "One American's Rage Spills Over: Shut Your Mouth & Start Fighting These Political Parasites"

 

Good thing that guy doesn't post comments on blogs like francis_sawyer did [once upon a time]

 

- letting your rage spill over

- NOT shutting your mouth

- attempting to fight these [political & or otherwise] parasites

 

You might end up getting kicked off because CH1 & SMG digress on the issue [based upon exquisite knowledge of the dangers of the dark sect of 'Luciferianism']...

SMG's picture

These parasites control just about every lever of power in our society.   The schools, entertainment, media, banking, police, military, religion, government.  You name it, their agents are in key positions working toward their NWO empire goal.

Someone who was in their ranks and left was asked, "When you left, did they try and stop you?"  He said "No", he said " They were so confident in their brainwashing of society, that they said, "We could publicly reveal ourselves and our agenda and people wouldn't believe it"

As it stands, people won't believe the Satanists plan, until the nukes are falling from the sky, but there is still time to stop it.  

You have to undo their brainwashing or any kind of resistance will never have a chance.  I try and raise holy heck about this stuff in a rational manner, but it just doesn't sink in.   I actually had a conversation with a co-worker of mine, explaining how your smartphone can spy on you, and she actually replied "Oh, your just being paranoid"  This even after the Snowden revelations.

We here in the US are so wrapped up in the conceit we are the "greatest, freest" nation in the world.  I don't know how you break that in the minds of most.  It was hard for myself as well.

The advantage of having greater and greater wealth concentrated in fewer and fewer hands is that you only need to eliminate a very few criminals to restore balance.

They wont arrest the real criminals- you dont bite the hand that feeds you, especially when you're fed very very well. Many police officers make in excess of $100,000 per year once they've been on the job for a few years.

Once we the people get our money printing press back from the parasites, we will give the cops a raise.

Parasitic 'law enforcement' are more likely to arrest the people who are reading this.

 

The criminals and 'law enforement' (but I repeat myself) will never be arrested under the present regime. The only way they'll get their due deserts, will be via flash-mob, crowd-funded, direct-democracy existential nullification. E-Ukraine style.

"I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad - worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone.' Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot - I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you've got to get mad. You've got to say, 'I'm a HUMAN BEING, God damn it! My life has VALUE!' So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!' I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell - 'I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Things have got to change. But first, you've gotta get mad!... You've got to say, 'I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Then we'll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: "I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!"

The more things change, the more they stay the same.  He could have made this speech this afternoon and it would still be relevant.  We need a Howard Beale.

If we are to unseat Bernays and remove the hands of his followers from our throats, we need to get everyone we know to see that graphic.  If they're too dumb to understand it - explain it to them (it is amazing how few folks understand the difference between mean and median).  Also, stop voting for any politician who spoons out the pablum of "American Exceptionalism".  We aren't now and never were exceptional.  Also, I recently listened to an interview with a psychological researcher who presented evidence that narcissism is on the rise in American children, driven in large measure by parents who tell their kids they are special, leading to anger and violence when those kids figure out that they are just special enough to flip burgers.

FreedomGuy's picture

Actually, if you do not think America is exceptional you have not been paying attention to history. While I will say that entropy has overtaken our exceptionalism, it does and has existed. I could fill the page with the exceptional and unusual and bold things done and created in America.

The exceptionalism revolves around liberty, individual rights and self-selection. Back in 1787 when the Constitution was written, every major nation in the world was lead by a monarch who claimed divine rights and certain blood lines. Law still pretty much served the monarch and rulers and while the Magna Carta had been a great step forward, it was largely ignored or nullified.

As some other astute commenters have posted, the people who came to the U.S. before it was the U.S. were exceptionally courageous and many died along the way. They came primarily for liberty. For most of American history there has been a worldwide self selection that I find nearly Darwinian. People who were fearful and pessimistic stayed in the old countries for better or usually worse. They were not risk takers, adventurers, ideologues or even entrepreneurs. "Play it safe and sensible" or "You have no idea what you are getting into! Are you crazy?" would be more their style. So America self populated with many of the best from around the world. As the frontier moved West the process continued.

I would argue that this gave America a huge advantage. One of the characteristics was that Americans were not keen on being told what to do, how to live, where to live, and a host of similar issues. Imagine telling an American two hundred years ago that Congress has a 2,000 page bill to control when, how, why and under what circumstances you will see a physician. It also tells everyone else how to run a medical practice and comes with large new taxes, large numbers of enforcers and it is mandatory you buy a product, or else? They'd say, "Let's see what the 'or else' part is. Draw when you're ready." This is the essence of the Whiskey Rebellion.

If you look at sports, entertainment, science, techology, commerce, health and so on America outpaced every nation in the world who usually had a 500 to 1000 year head start. You cannot correct for population. It makes the differences more apparent. America dominates in most every category of significance and has the most innovation, either from here or for here. No one else comes close.

That is pretty exceptional. As we adopt ever more of the Leftist agenda that will all come to an end. Let's face it, we are pretty much the USSA, now and we are slightly behind the entropy that is Europe. The question, as posed indirectly by this article is whether or not we will tolerate the decline or do something about it.

Grimnir's picture

This really just goes to show that America is another failed experiment: the experiment of considerably limiting government in the hopes that it would prevent the power-hungry from infiltrating the government it does have and grab more and more power for themselves.

Indeed, it was the idea of freedom that attracted so many people from other parts of the world to try it out and allowed foreign ideas to be innovated on (the freedom often came at the cost of the Indians, but let's not get into that). That was all well and good for awhile, but it was inevitable that the gains in wealth and ideas would only be sought out to be controlled by others.

So not only did it fail, but now this behemoth, which has used all the innovations of foreigners to build itself up, has become the conduit for which the entire world can be bullied. But something's gotta give, and it will sooner or later. It's time we stopped talking about the glory days of freedom in America. Those were VERY short lived (hint: LONG before anyone reading this was born). Rather than trying to simply return to how things were 200 years ago, maybe it's time to start thinking of ways to prevent this mess from coming about AGAIN.

You have no idea of history.

After the hanging of Charles I in England in 1640, the English King did not rule Enlgand, the parliament ruled England, the King was the 'head of state', nothing more.

The Magna Carta, signed by John II in 1215 , when he was absolutely  broke, was a reactionary document- not a democratic document-the 'deal' forced on him by his power hungry Nobles.  The Magan Carta took power from the Crown and gave the nobles power to 'lord' over the peasants.  The Nobles then used 'enclosures' (fences, that took away the peasants right to hunt on noble lands)which  forced the people into serfdom.

Don't use grand themes of history to buttress  your points if you don't know what the fuck happened.

Monarchies,are not necessarily 'bad', 'evil'.  

Antonine Rome, for 150 years, in the years after Christ  was peaceful, plentiful  under Emperors: so was China in many of her dynasties.

'Democratic' Athens, for example, extorted tribute from her sister states for defense then spent the proceeds on the Parthenon and othern art , not for ships, armour,swords men.  Totally divisive, crooked. 

Don't be a schlepper: don't get stuck on MSM memes-dictators are bad, democracy is good, communism is evil inter alia: such designations are but disguise for true motives which never  change-the powerful want more power and the less powerful (get mesmorized) get fucked!!

 

Did I pass the audition?

Yeah, actually you are way off base and I know history well. Military history happens to be my specialty. Are you named after a French general that served L'emperor Napoleon?

Nothing you say or quote dimishes what I wrote. I actually referenced the Magna Carta for a reason and it was not simply grand themse of history. Where we are is a direct product of where we/Europeans have been. The Magna Carta was a great step regardless of cause. Ideas like "nobless oblige" were a step forward...Oudinot.

My point is that America has been exceptional by any measure you want to take. You have to WANT to believe that it is not to do anything else.

Your last sentence really undoes any point you might have wanted to make. You act like you were really there as a reporter and primary source who knows "what the fuck" really happened. Are you a professor of European history with a superior understanding? Not even close.

My point stands.

Yes, the courageous and idealists came but so did the religous fanatics, convicts and greedy banker types. I am afraid the latter won out over the former. A little reverse Darwinism might be in order.

Did you read the post?  Did you see where median income for U.S. citizens fell?  There are other statistics that support my contention.  Infant mortality?  Hell, we fall below Serbia and Croatia. https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/rankorder/20....  Happiness?  How bout 17th?  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Happiness_Report.  There likely are areas where the U.S. is number one - like the rate of adult incarceration, but that hardly makes us exceptional.  Wake up.
