I Simply Must Apologize To The Rich And Powerful!

I Simply Must Apologize!

I simply must apologize!

How could I ever criticize?

I never took the time to familiarize!

I’ve had someone to open my eyes!

Never before did I sympathize!

It was only the dollar he would emphasize.

Wow! The way he could organize!

He had “that way” to advertize!

He was only trying to tranquilize!

So what if he would monopolize?

So workers’ pay was minimized?

Every tool he will utilize!

His toadies he will synchronize!

They know how to proselytize.

A worker? He might stigmatize.

So what if he needed to terrorize!


A competitor? He might neutralize.

Dissenters he will ostracize!

Other countries? He might polarize!

Another country? He might barbarize.

Of course for profits he’ll downsize!

He always has a speech to memorize!

If it should come back to him, he did not authorize!

Is there anything here to epitomize?

Nominate him for the Nobel Prize?

There’s nothing here to idolize.

Don’t even try to deodorize!

After all – he’s just trying to capitalize!

All Capitalism Is Not Good. Unbridled Business Is Not!

Let's join the Bilderberg Club! It's an annual, unofficial, invitation-only conference of around 130 guests. Most of these folks have influence in politics, banking, business, the military, and the media. WELL GO FIGURE!

They are very secretive. Each conference is closed to the public. They never issue news releases. They are often accused of political conspiracies. WELL- DO YOU THINK?

But why go into any other evidence of unbridled capitalistic powerful, greedy, selfish pigs!

America doesn't have time to be "really" informed. But we have to be "somehow".

Private clubs are segregating the world. We are all just, simply, "people". We need to lift each other up. I'm against private clubs with private agendas.

The FRANKLIN SCANDAL - Pedophile Ring for the Rich and Powerful

The Frankin Scandal is the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring’s pimps were a pair of political powerbrokers who had access to the highest levels of our government. Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks.The legislators’ efforts resulted in rash of mysterious deaths and the overpowering corruption of federal and local law enforcement, including the FBI, Secret Service, and Justice Department, effecting an immaculate cover-up of the trafficking network.

Toe Your Flipping Party Line Won't You!!!

Now can anybody believe that Micky Dee would have anything against unbridled capitalism, greed, power, money?

If you're rich and use your wealth for the betterment of society - God bless!

Yeah- go ahead and write me down with a permanent marker that I generally dislike the deeds of the rich! Compassion should accompany wealth.

Research the United Fruit Company!!! The United Fruit Company is one of the reasons that Cuba is the Cuba we know today.

“I was on the same plane as Gavin Newsom (Mayor of San Francisco) and he sat in economy with me!  He is SOO cute and yummy!  So tall and handsome, he’s going to do great things for California and our country!” she gushed.

Micky you have inspired me to write a hub about how the rich actually got richer over the recession - I am researching it right now - increase in millionaires but what will interest you the biggest increase is in Brazil. India and China. Strange Days - and no Jim Morrison. Give me a day or so on this one.

Hi Darlene. We're full of the Illuminati! The "wantaberichers" are their flunkies. The folks that depend on money (that's all of us) have to do their bidding. The "wantaberichers" do their bidding with great fervor though. Those are the big haters and bullies. I just got some of their propaganda at another of my hubs. They can't even help themselves anymore. They've told themselves lies for so long they've convinced themselves of their lies.

Great Hub, Micky! Like you I don't trust the rich very much. How did they get rich in the first place? Usually by doing someone else down. I know there might be exceptions, but I haven't come across them yet!

As you say, those who are wealthy should use their wealth to improve society, not just make themselves more wealthy. Luckily there are some who do, but I still wonder about their motives - is it a good marketing ploy to send malaria nets to Africa, maybe?

Love and peace

Oh my God, i just watched the Franklin video, i can,t believe the evil in this world. Are there no good people in high places and looking at the video, it appeared that the church was involved. I have wanted to sponsor a child, but who in the world can you trust. Micky please be careful, you expose people who might hurt you, if you would have a fatal accident, i would wonder!! I have a hub, called," why are some women allowed to conceive" and

i don,t think any of my followers have been told. There was a mix-up, when i first put it on hubpages two people made comments, then i wanted to edit it, which i did but when i did it became unpublished, i notified the hub staff and they cleared it and published it, but i don,t think anyone knows about it, lord have mercy, how i do ramble on, anyway your hubs are valuable in letting people know about the coruption going on, just be careful.

Hey Always Exploring! I've already been "singled out". Americans are pretty smug about disbelieving how police could beat up Rodney King once, and are less likely to believe that somebody is getting beat up by a policeman right now. God bless policemen who are honest. God bless the firemen that are honest and brave and work HARD! God bless civil servants who want to serve. Everybody should do some humanitarian service for our country! If it is possible to help our brothers and sisters -it should be a requirement and a blessing to everyone - the giver and the receiver.

It is a pleasure to help one another!

Almost Exploring, can I call you AlEx? Just pulling your lariat! I'm ready to go. I say that. Maybe most of us do. But it must be quite a shock really when "we go". Yes Ma'am. I know there are people with enough hate to kill me. I have no doubts. I hope they do kill me. Hell I'm tired of writing about what should be obvious to most people but the media don't want to get into that much truth. I'm not really "having fun". These stories are not fun like the bike stories and the other poetry. I'd like to write funnier poems. I guess I know the truth or I have a good idea about it. I seek the truth and I've been that way since Nam. I've also been to hell a bunch of times right here in the USA. I know things can be made bad for me. I could have a big string of "bad luck". In America and most places, it doesn't matter if you've broken the law but whether the powers that be want you to have broken a law. My suffering won't be long. Thank you AlEx! Always Exploring!

We do have Bill and Melissa Gates and Bono, but I, too, am doing research right now on objectivism which seems to fuel the new "moral" code of the rich. It explains a lot about their dissing the unemployed and elderly as unproductive and useless and like stray cats one shouldn't encourage by feeding.

It seems there one rule for the rich and one for the poor. If you are rich then you can buy anything, however vile and corrupt. I had never heard of this pedophile ring but am not really surprised. Certain people think their money and position places them in some special untouchable place.

I also read some scandal about Bush a short while ago but only saw a small article not giving much information.

I think those who have perverted minds do not look on their victims as human. They think they are objects to do their bidding until they have fulfilled their purpose and then disposed of. I think those who commit these foul acts are not human and the only penalty for pedophilia, for example, should only be death. There can be no extenuating circumstances, in my opinion that should spare them.

It is terrible to think that somewhere, at any moment there are children and adults being subjected to unspeakable miseries.

It is when I read or hear about things like this that I really hope there is a God who will punish the wrongdoers.

As usual, Micky Dee, an excellent article. Thank you.

You have a good heart Hummingbird! That's what we need- good hearts. "De-humanizing" is definitely a trait to hate! We need a kinder world.I do think we need to spend a little time thinking about some of the sources of suffering and really concentrate on being more compassionate.

You mention a scandal about Bush. I'm sorry, would that be the idiot son, the idiot father, or the horrible grandfather? It's really hard to define their actions as crimes. The laws were never meant for these folks. The Bushes and their ilk just take turns with jerking the whole world around. But notice how the "party line" is seldom broken. Thank you Hummingbird!

Hi Hummingbird. A puzzling thing to me is how good people (seemingly at least) have chosen this man who like many of our leaders, have been members of a secret organization called "Skull & Bones". First off- how would I tell my parents? "Dad- I just joined this club called ...". How does a Christian nation decide "this choice" is the choice. Plus- they don't care to answer truthfully about their "secret society". Do they have Geronimo's skull? And- George graduated Yale? How? We have "blooper reels" that reflect a nightmare of idiocy! George Bush graduated Yale. It's an institution of higher learning? The National Guard couldn't find Bush when he was a member? I see no reason for the republican party to exist but for the rich and privileged. I see no future with the dems either. They both work for the rich. The dems pretend to care though and more so at the grassroots level. You will know them by their fruit and some of the fruit smells. Thank you Hummingbird.

It is envy and ignorance that breeds this contempt for the rich. There are bad people and good people in all walks of life and in all income brackets. However, capitalism has been a great vehicle to power America into its status in the world. Free markets are the best way to run your economy. THe real problems occur when you give government power to regulate as corruption then sets in. Companies have no power to run our lives. If you dont like the product, then dont buy it. When you give government power, they then can run your life (and ruin it)

I think we have seen in this country what unregulated capitalism has done. Sure it benefeits the "big boys" who know how to play the game but not for hard working middle class Americans.


braudboy profile image

braudboy 6 years ago from Long Beach, MS

If you are talking about the recent economic crisis....well, you are wrong. That was not unregulated capitalism. That was government intervention forcing bad loans into the market place. It was government who strong-armed banks and lending institutions into lending to high-risk borrowers for housing for political reasons. These lenders would never have taken that risk unless forced to do so. Then, the markets had to deal with the massive amounts of dollars in risky real estate ventures and thats where the trouble started. There is no evidence that "free markets" or unregulated markets are the problem. The real problems are with government trying to manipulate markets and control them for their political favor.

braudboy- "It is envy and ignorance that breeds this contempt for the rich." Can you and your other suck-ups to the rich even read. People like you and your buddies need government watching but not from the same jacks that turn the world upside down

Envious of you and who? My sights are not on this world except to point out your corruption. You're holding a child in your arms. What about the "Franklin Scandal? You want to do away with government "eyes" on a pedophile ring. Maybe we should call social services to go over to your house! Envious of you? I'm not envious of brainwahed party huggers that ignore suffering in the world. You and your cronies "looking the other way are the problem. Give me some rhetoric. That's what you do. Rhetoric! No facts! Just stupid rhetoric!

The real problem with you and your ilk is no concern for the fellow man. It doesn't bother me that you and others don't believe in paying your dues. I don't care3 that you don't believe in God. AND you don't. But I have atheist friends who live and breathe the Golden Rule. If you were a real citizen and caring person you would admit to your folly. Reagan and his buddies set the dogs loose on unions and destroyed the middle class. You have no credibility!

You blather about corruption....but it is even more so in the government you want put in charge of this capitalism. Your idiotic examples of pedophile activity and such is, of course, not acceptable.

Let's draw the line- YES, braudboy- I am against corruption whether a small businessman does it, a big businessman does it, a judge, politician, Supreme Court judge, or you. I don't care whether it's a democrat or this political farce you call republican. You are division and hate. You haven't changed my mind at all. I won't be acknowledging your hate here anymore. You're a member of the HATE party. I'm not a member of any party. We should not bring children up with this much hate. Yes, I am against corruption. It's too bad that dishonest people like yourself- and by the way, you are labeling yourself this way in NOT SPEAKING OUT about corruption whether it's your friends or not. Yes sir- write me down as being against corruption and yes I'm definitely against the repugnant party. You have now made me a life-time member of the "republican? YUCK! Club". There are too many of you in your party. You've fooled the Christians of America with your lies and indeed oppression. You bully people when they work for you. I'm guessing that because you love corrupt businessmen and want to speak out in their defense, you are one. I will try to maintain allegiance to the Golden Rule however.

Now here you are braudboy calling me names. You like the word liberal because I'm against bad business. You call me pompous too. Let me just say that I'm not a "liberal:". I'll die before I'm whatever you are.

But braudboy- I do not care what sexual affiliation you are but I'm straight. You seem to have some physical attraction to me as well as political. I'm not gay. I have nothing against you are your sexual affiliation. I realize that a lot of you party line followers are gay for power and republican leaders and you mask your feelings with a "pretend hatred" for liberals. Books are written on your supposed moral values and your conflicting actions. Your words say you hate me (and for no reason) but your return trips tell me you are very effeminate. And that's okay. But you should find a male lover in that political craziness where you are.

Micky Dee profile image

Micky Dee 6 years ago Author

what I'm trying to do braudboy is comply with and promoter the Golden Rule. I really don't want to argue.

I'd like to see improvement with our government. I never voted for Clinton, Gore, either Bush, nor did I vote for Obama. I have voted for Ross Perot and others.

So- I think we can blame some of the mess America is in on someone else? Who do you suggest? Those dang Liberals.

I warned you earlier that, "I won't be acknowledging your hate here anymore. You're a member of the HATE party."

So how should I be now? You bring no conversation to the page here. You probably don't even have much but hate on your hubs. I can only guess because you refuse to "create the hate" on your own hub. Do you know how? I won't be going to find out because I'm not interested in you at all. You sure are interested in me.

I don't know you braudboy at all. But- there is no arena that you can defeat me in.

I'll take the moniker of loser. I've lost quite a bit. I've lost in the US courts and the injustice system that is wrecking this country. I've lost with business because I've chosen to not be wicked. I'm a "disposable human". Petra has a book of that title. I actually have said that in other circumstances so I know exactly.

I'm a small man. This can give you more courage and confidence. I'm 5' 6" maybe, and shrinking. I'm 60 years old. I played sports. I've been the only person working for Ralph Morrell that would go into the black waters of the Edisto River to hook up a drag line to logs. I've finished the Assault on Mt. Mitchell, 102 miles, 30 straight years. I finished once with a broken clavicle. I've ridden Boston-Montreal-Boston, 750 miles in 66 hours. I've ridden Paris-Brest-Paris, 750 miles in 66 hours. I can't give you my resume right here. I've put myself in harm's way a lot more than you have and I don't know you. I know the odds though. You try to intimidate. That's just witchcraft.

I'm a Marine. I was in Vietnam at the DMZ. I didn't have an office job.

Good luck with your hate. Good luck with that "coward" scenario.

The more you write- the more you need God! The more hate you spew- the more will return to you.

You are making yourself sick. Now- take my words and your words to a preacher, a priest, a rabbi, psychologist, or a counselor of some sort and see if your actions or mine are "acceptable".

Calling me a coward? I would say you would need to cheat in a fight. Of course there is no good fight. There is no fair fight. My guess is you would use a weapon. You'd use a lot of force. You might come with friends. You're the master of the "cheap shot".

You certainly fail at diplomacy, tact, recruiting abilities for your cause.

My guess you probably are a really bad person. You're a bully.

You and the "right wing and that moral majority" party should find out what Jesus is all about. I'll say the those liberals should too.

But Jesus said, "This law I give you to be above all laws- that you love one another - that you do unto others as you would have them do unto you".

Now if your party was real- there would be some of your party here agreeing with these simple words. The Golden Rule- it's not just a good idea - it is the LAW above all others!

If our leaders, religious, political, or otherwise do not adhere to this simple law we will continue to have Satan at the helm. Vote red or blue. It won't matter. Fact is- your party and that other one is fake.

The Golden Rule- it's great for atheist too!

I am not a member of any party. YOu make assumptions of hatred and accusation with the best of them. I merely pointed out that there are good and bad people in every income bracket. Your hub appears to make fun of the rich in general. I very much believe in God and I put my faith in him, not government, to provide for my family. You talk alot about Jesus. You should probably reconsider the position of government regulating business as our government has no connection, that I can see, with Jesus. You dont know me, and you have painted me as an athiest. You are way off. I can just spot a hypocrite from a mile away.

Well braudboy in the words of Ronnie Reagan- there you go again. I do not talk a lot about Jesus. I talk about Jesus and the Golden Rule. No- you are very much like the masses of so called "Christians" who talk about everything but the Golden Rule. I talk about treating each other right.

Government regulating business? Hell no I don't want THIS government regulating ANY business but yes it needs regulating.

This country has promoted slavery since 1776. THIS government is for the rich. You think you know this government. If you did you'd be creating hubs about the negatives of the leaders of this country for at least- just - the last 30 years. That would keep you busy.

I'm try to open eyes to tyranny. You want to beat me and this hub up.

braudboy profile image

braudboy 6 years ago from Long Beach, MS

Mickey- I cant be shoo'd! You say that business needs regulating, but you dont want government to do it. This makes no sense. There is no one but government to do it. And there lies the problem. If left alone, businesses are regulated by the consumer. If the company doesnt satisfy the customer, he will go out of business. The real problems came along when corrupt people in government started getting more power to regulate. It set up a system where companies can pay off govt officials thru political donations and lobbyists, and bypass satisfying the customer.

This/our government is all a big show. I may highlight this and that. I'll be putting bike pics up or I'll give a time-line of "enterprises" for 150 years or maybe two hundred.

I'll put up all kinds of stuff. But- I'm simple.

I just keep hammering that Golden Rule. It's the only nail I have.

The hearts of the world have to change. We cannot look away from corruption by one (either) political party because that party supports superficial band-aids and panacea while ignoring the real blight on the world which is the abandonment of "our brothers and sisters", people, etc.

This is the real blight that we may not recover from.

How many unexploded landmines are still "being found"?

See? This is another hub. I have a lot of fish to fry. I don't have writer's block.

The bottom line is - a man cannot serve a political party and God too!

There is one Master.

If someone is atheist- perhaps they are their masters.

But- we all have to serve somebody. I've served and I've been "served".

There has always been and will be work to do.

We all have to serve. We should pick some cotton, teach some school, clean a toilet, sweep a floor, plant some food.

How did Hearst come to own 8,000,000 acres in Mexico? Maybe we should be insulted when we see even smaller countries sold to the highest bidder.

I'm probably going to be picking at scabs for quite a while. But scabs are history. I like knowing real history. Not fabricated, "George Washington chopped down a cherry tree" history.

The bottom line is- whatever anybody is putting ahead of the Golden Rule is false!

So- in this spirit of the Golden Rule- I can leave your arguments as they are, erase them, or whatever. Doesn't matter. I don't mean disrespect to you or anyone. If possible I'd like to act as a shock absorber. I'd like to take a hit, the hit, whatever will lead us to adhering to this Golden Rule.

I don't have one single agenda. Not a flipping flopping one. I've lived here 40 years too long already.

I want to serve a benevolent God.

If not - what purpose is there?

In every religion there is the "Golden Rule".

That's God's law.

So- if I have offended anyone unjustly- I am truly sorry.

I intend to keep writing though- pretty much as I have been.

I intend to obey God.

As a matter of fact though- if you and all your friends would- seriously - pray for me to have this burden lifted from me.

I don't think I can ask that. Jesus said to pray the Lord's prayer. So I try to do that.

I'm not going to ask God to lighten my load.

I just want the strength required.

If this "load" is considered a failure here or there, it doesn't matter. It isn't my "load".

I have things to do. At least -I think I do.

Who knows? "Like a thief in the night."

This isn't my choice. I don't get paid for subject matter. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure I've ever made anything here.

But- I'm tired! I live alone. People see me as a cyclist a couple days a week. Other than that - I hardly exist.

You can say that God or life has slapped my ass silly and slapped me right here.

I'm just like everybody else.

I do what I'm told.

The worst of all this might be- you may not like the posters I place with my poetry!

So I'll dedicate this verse,

With nary a curse.

I wish you and yours love, joy,

Peace, and happiness braudboy!

Aye Mic, my Brother, I started 3rd in this race and have peddled until the end, seems you've created a "good conversation" your accolades will show. You can spread the word of Christ and his teachings far and wide. As sure as they killed him, know this! It is written you will be chastised, imprisoned and worse, when you come in his name.

So don't be disappointed when this occurs, it is then you will know you shake the tree of sin, Much Love and Peace 50

I'm in total agreement. Yes, there may be exceptions who have amassed fortunes, contributing to the betterment of society with tiny portions. The norm is that those fortunes should perhaps be returned to those whose blood, sweat and lives they demanded and destroyed as they crushed, controlled, abused and manipulated through enslavement for "gain".

Was Jesus carried by slaves to share his message? Did Buddha keep any of his rightful inheritance once choosing a spiritual path? Could Ghandi have freed his people if focused on financial gain?

As amazing as our lack of shock with what we witness these days is that through-out history, "power" became synonomous with greed; "control" with deceptive manipulation; "education" with delusional personal agendas... the list goes on. Do you offer a solution Micky?

Thanks 50 Caliber. I've had some of what you're talking about. I should have a "get out of jail free card" but I don't. I'm working on the staying out of hell card.

Yo SEM Pro! I do think there are enough "basics" that we need to see people with. I think sidewalks that are in gated areas are pretty and should be where the poor are walking in the mud and with cars too. You can go to a lot of cities and see people walking in danger. ETC.

We just need to make the world more livable for more people.

The biggest thing is giving dignity to people.

Here here - offering a solution for others to gain back dignity is also the ultimate fulfillment :) "Do unto others" is a good start - recognizing the leader and love in everyone we meet is to honor them. There are new and current messages/solutions for some of our tougher problems these days as well :)

Wow...this was not as fun as going cycling with you on those beautiful journeys. Glad that you and braudboy have come to some sort of an understanding.

I think that you were both in agreement at the end that there are good and bad people in all levels of society and government for that matter. Power does seem to have a corrupting force unfortunately and successful movies have even been made with that as a theme. No one should be painted with a broad brush or generalization.

If we could gel this all down to the GOLDEN RULE, everybody on this earth would be better off. That I truly believe!

Now I need to go read or write something fun and frivolous!

There are very few rich people who have compassion. I have met one rich person with compassion and he seems to be a deep thinker but he never makes it known. If you looked at him outwardly you would not see anything. I had to figure it out myself. This guy helped me way back when I was really losing it and I really appreciate people like this who offer true help (instead of exploiting) when we are in a cess pit! It seems to me that the most valuable people in this world rarely get to see the limelight but if we can recognize them for who they are when they appear, then we will see them in some kind of great kind of glory. I think you are a person who understands these things.

That's a great story whoisbid. It's forever - the other way around. Exploitation rules the day. God bless!
