Wake Up From the Dream

“America is not a young land: it is old and dirty and evil before the settlers, before the Indians. The evil is there waiting.”

William S. Burroughs

Reading this stopped me dead in my tracks, cold. For I have felt this way too...about this spit of land that I live on now. You can feel it rumbling under the sun and beach and ice cream children. It is there. Energy from the past lingers. And I do believe this was the place of the first encounter between the people living here and the arriving settlers. The energy is here.

I've seen it in a young woman-- walking zombie-like across the street at 5:00 am, thinking she is either drugged out or under some kind of mind-control. I've seen it in the harsh treatment of the summer help by the locals. I've seen it in the little blue pin-wheels blowing in the wind on the lawn of a local bank, representing children who have been abused. I've seen it in the number of homeless on the streets, and how they are shuffled along so as not to bother the tourist. And I've seen it in the cavalier treatment of justice in a murder trial.

I also happen to know a woman who's sister was murdered....her body buried in the woods here....one of many. And the odd thing, is, she's friends with relatives of the man who killed her sister. Small place.

So, you can feel it in the air if you are attuned to that kind of thing...and many here are. It's an artistic community and also one of alternative life-styles. Mixed in with some very conservative retired people and some of great wealth.

It has been compared to the south, in that only a relatively small number of families settled here and they intermarried. So, you will see the same names on buildings, roads, etc. And you will often see the same name as both the defendant and judge in a trial! And actually, that trial I spoke of has been compared to the books Twelve Angry Men, and To Kill a Mockingbird.

What is my point in this essay? I don't know. Burroughs words just struck me and compelled me to write. And at the same time, conjured up a poem by Jim Morrison called L'America....My America! The place I love/hate all at the same time! The place where I stood at the top of the Statue of Liberty and had the strong urge to jump! It's our destiny to be here at this time...L'America has something to do with the recompense. For it has evil in it. In the ground. In the buildings. In the old broken down brick factories that sit vacant and stare out with empty- eyed windows into the night. One can imagine all the dark and dirty secrets that roam those city streets. The long ago past and the not so distant. And it has drifted down here too. The palpable something...ready to pounce. Ready to rumble up. Ready to tell its tale. I have a feeling it will come as no surprise to many.

The last lines from L'America, byJim Morrison:

doomed from the start

l'america

"That's how I met her,

l'america

lonely & frozen

l'america

& sullen, yes

l'america right from the start"

Then stop.

Go.

The wilderness between.

Go round the march.





All It Can Be

Do you believe America is living up to her destiny?

      Weistein is guilty. He took power and abused it. But we"re all guilty. Its called patriarchy and its a system.

      Mostly taught by religion.

      "Woman is subservient to man"

      Well, i dont buy it. Never did. And its on its way out.

      And for women who say "let the system work"....they just dont get it.

      The system is the problem.

      And a warning for you fellas......if you dont help change it, when the feminine takes charge, it will be in the same veign....not good. Abusing power, only you'll be under the boot.

      Yes Dear 2 weeks ago from Cape Cod, USA

      Read a comment on twitter.....guy says they are going tenderly with the trump/russia info in order to preserve the union.

      We already know civil war is out there. Its been threatened since the election of obama. Look at them! Say a bad word about trump and they want to kill you.

      Literally.

      Must walk on eggshells with the fragile ego.

      Centuries of being a country of white aryan kingmen....they truly think they are deserving of holding power and the best of everything given to them and them alone.

      Can it be they cant see it has already changed? This last gasp of theirs to hold onto superiority is simply an excercise in futility?

      God is not a white man. There, i said it.

      Nor is god any kind of man.....for the rest of you real awful misogynist countries.

      But you know what? FU!

      We had a woman who worked her heart out to be prez...knows things, has experience....

      And we got an ignoramus cause you had to go back to your comfort zone.

      Hillary knew about the navy ship comfort...trump didnt.

      Hillary did her homework. Trump didnt.

      So be it. The truth is there. But when it comes out, the trumpites wont be able to handle it.

      Thats when the guns are drawn. Against fellow americans who stand for equality for all.

      This is why they must walk gingerly. Baby steps for babies.

      It has always been this way. The powers that be dont want the truth out there.

      Ever read the gospel of mary? The powerful men didnt include it in your bible.

      I think you should....might kearn something....and you know, we brought you in this world....

      Newsflash:

      Those of you who insist that gvt is corrupt and must be drained....

      This is your opinion, and only that. And not everyone shares it. Nor does everyone think every pol is just like all the others. Dems are just like repubs? Hardly.

      What you gvt decriers fail to ever mention is the corruption, greed, and lawlessness that exists in the business/money world, which needs a strong force to defend from.

      Gvt needs to be a force for good. We need to get the biz/money/lawless claws out of it.

      Not have one as prez.

      And that is my opinion. And frankly, never the twain shall meet!

      once again, rightys sitting on undeserved high horse.

      i actually brought it up here when nugent told obama to suck on his gun, and hillary to ride it.

      know what right said? "dont be such a wimp, he has right to say what he wants"

      not too long ago he called obama a sub -human mongrel.

      no conservative outrage.

      he said hillary should be hung.

      rightwingers here on hp were saying hillary was satan, obama was the antichrist, and hillary was spirit-cooking and running a paedophile ring.

      no conservative outrage.

      so spare me the kathy griffin high horse. the right is just as disgusting on a regular basis.

      after all, ive been a femi-nazi slut who supports barack the magic negro since limbaugh's fat mouth came along.

      and he never apologizes for anything.

      you cant be independent and alt right. alt right is extreme.

      if you want to round up mexicans, keep muslims out, ramp up the police state and force women to have babies against their will, there is nothing indie about you.

      there is no indie in trumpland. you are either for him or against him.

      its a clear line in the sand!

      trump is alt-right.

      and the republicans will put up w him to get their agenda in.

      i hope you know, he has alienated 70% of americans, whether they admit it or not.

      and NO ONE should work w him!

      anyone one watching north carolina? repubs are so upset a democrat won, they're taking away his powers!

      and they have a fit over recount?

      their redistricting and voter suppression laws were deemed racially motivated and unconstitutional.

      and i hear not a peep from those who claim democrats are trying to "steal" the presidential election.

      guess what? it was already stolen. we want the rightful winner in there.

      and yes, 100%, republicans put in redistricting and voting restrictions to prevent black democrats from voting.

      im sorry, you cannot play nice w these people.

      and they do not get to keep claiming "real" american status.

      this truly is the kali yuga. lady apocalypse coming into bloom. the shooting of those cops was supposed to make us all hate blm, but it's having the opposite effect. I saw a white guy crying about it...saying how he doesn't feel safe anymore, what happened to america....well my friend, this is the america that black people and indigenous people have lived under for centuries.

      do you know, black moms have to protect their children from the police? they are taught how to be deferential, don't make them upset, let them bully and disrespect you. this from people who are paid to serve and protect!!!

      now white people are getting a glimpse of the terrorism that black people live under.

      Hillary is right. we need to walk in anothers shoes for a minute. understand what terrorism is, and how we as a society promote it.

      when you can cry for innocent black men as much as you cry for innocent white cops, we will have made progress.

      mothers of the movement support hillary....and i know why.

      I just heard his campaign manager say that his numbers are high because he gets Independent voters.

      Well, yeah, because he is one!

      But rather than run as one, he uses democrats: votes which normally would have gone to Hillary, AND gets his Independents to boot.

      Now that's machinations. Unfair and sleazy.

      I recently saw a comment that said Democrats really, are mostly pragmatic. I know Obama is....and so is Hillary. Many people say that her being a "rocked-ribbed Republican" in her youth, like her dad, is a negative.

      I don't think so. I think it shows she is not a block-head! She can learn, and grow. AND, she does not outright dismiss those opposing views, as so many others do.

      The things that have been nagging me about Sanders are this:

      1. Hearing people in Vermont call him a corporate sell-out (very confusing to me!)

      2. Reading Ron Paul say he watered down the Fed audit so much as to be ineffective.

      Well, we are learning.

      Sanders is about to get "the Hillary treatment", as is Trump.

      Let it begin.....

      "Mr. Sanders tops off his narrative with a deus ex machina: He assures Democrats concerned about the political obstacles in the way of his agenda that he will lead a “political revolution” that will help him clear the capital of corruption and influence-peddling. This self-regarding analysis implies a national consensus favoring his agenda when there is none and ignores the many legitimate checks and balances in the political system that he cannot wish away.

      Mr. Sanders is a lot like many other politicians. Strong ideological preferences guide his thinking, except when politics does, as it has on gun control. When reality is ideologically or politically inconvenient, he and his campaign talk around it. Mr. Sanders’s success so far does not show that the country is ready for a political revolution. It merely proves that many progressives like being told everything they want to hear."

      https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/bernie-san...

      *****

      On par with Trump, who tells his audience what they want to hear, IMO.

      Unless it disagrees with yours.

      Vasectomy Now, a play in 3 acts.

      Premise: A crazy preacher is so obsessed with abortion, he creates an island where pregnant women are caged. If they have a male baby, he is automatically taken and given a vasectomy.

      The women are monitoted constantly, their sex lives regulated to a tee. Abortion is considered a crime, punishable by death.

      Act 1:

      Group of women are sick of being held in bondage, fear of death over their heads. They scheme together to kidnap crazy preacher, send him on ship out to sea. Preacher is heavily guarded, eunuchs serving him for life.

      Act 2:

      Women enlist the help of their sons, who are forced to serve as obediants to the Church of No Abortion. Though they fear for their lives as well, they love their mothers!

      Act 3:

      Sons request meeting with crazy man, whose main pleasure is hanging upside down on a cross, chanting"im not worthy, im not worthy". Sons distract eunuchs with talk of the latest fashion, and group of mothers enter crazy mans room through windows. They grab him, tie him up and escape with him out the windows they came in.

      End scene:

      Preacher is placed on ship, hung upside down on mast, and sent out to sea. Mothers and Sons go back to Church, which is turned into a home for wayward eunuchs.

      Women free to live lives, sons free of serfdom, no more crazy to rule their lives.

      Here is the mucky water we swim in regarding conspiracy theories....

      Many of us feel the "official" version of events is the conspiracy.

      Then there are those who manufacture conspiracies where none exists.

      Its a quagmire.

      And research really isnt the whole answer, as "they only show us what they want us to see"

      Only sure-fire way of knowing is after-the-fact: Qui Bono...who benefits!

      I will say this....anyone who thinks Muslims have benefitted these past 15 years is nuts.

      Terror attacks against Muslims going crazy. Brad Sherman given air time to say LA threat "said to have been a devout Muslim--but we don't know". NY police commish said it was hoax. Threat claimed to have been for allah.....writing allah with small case a--something a true devotee would never do.

      So you see....someones want you to think all this terror is Muslim terror. But any discerning person should see thru it.

      The only ones benefitting from it are anti-Muslim. Ergo: they are doing it. It's basic common sense. Easily ascertained when hysteria is removed from the brain.

      And all these Republican candidates that spout anti Muslim statements are guilty of promoting stochastic terrorism.

      Yes--the blood is on your hands.

      How many times must we keep repeating it?

      Gawd--dish it out, take it!

      Anyone with me yet on separating America?

      You must see we live in alternate universes, and will never be happy together.

      Heres my take:

      They want some radical right wing tin pot dictator to take over, give zionists control, and turn us into the next Gaza.

      I wonder if they know the control it takes to be civil to them. Given the fact their party gave us Bush and Cheney, whom i belive allowed 3000 of us to be killed for Greater Israel...

      Its a feat of great magnitude not to let them know exactly what i think if them. Its much in the line of things they say about liberals.

      So you see, there is not now, nor will ever be any way to" get along".

      We must go our sepatate ways if America is to survive. No bs.

      They can have guns, no abortion and no taxes.

      We can pay taxes for us all, and allow people to live as THEY see fit.

      Its got to happen. Not worth fighting another 200 years!

      And when you walk down the street

      Don't forget to ask for papers when you meet

      Hi Ho the mistletoe

      Hung where you can't see

      Shell bombs and IED's

      When you go to see

      Have a Muslim hating Christmas

      And in case you didn't know

      Masterminds are laughing cause the world is gonna blow

      *****

      Just kidding. World is gonna SHINE. Once we get rid of the dross.

      I watched the ceremony for Cheney's bust.....watched he and Bush talk about the great stuff they did.....watched 2 old men tried and weary.......could almost feel sorry for them. ALMOST. Bush I see some humanity in...people say he is a programmed multiple. His dad was a son of a b. But to sit there and act like nothing bad happened was really surreal. And this is how it goes....Horror. Death. Torture. Misery. All in a days work. Home to mother for some tea.

      "Every gun that is made, every war ship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."

      Nice that some men don't need Viagra yet....but guess what? When they do--it's included in their insurance plan! Yes, when their "little shooter" shoots blanks, we all get to pitch in to help it "aim straight and fire". You see--we think sex is vital and important for a man.

      Isn't that nice of us?

      Not like women, tho. If she wants birth control....why that just means she's a sl*t, huh? Why should YOU pay for her having sex, huh? I mean the NERVE of women thinking they should get equal treatment when we all know men are superior.

      Viagra: of course! We're pleased to help you.

      Birth control: How dare you demand I pay for your filthy desires....buy them yourself. Better yet: Keep your legs closed, and you won't need them!

      I guess sex is not vital and important for women......still......in 2015........

      I think Obama's gun proposal in 2013 was very reasonable.

      1. Remove gun show loop-hole

      2. Ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines

      3. Make schools safer

      4. Increase access to mental health

      *******

      Second amendment intact, maybe more lives saved. Sounds reasonable to me.

      But NOOOOOOOOOO

      No no no no no!

      Can't have a ban on assault weapons, or guns with magazines that can kill multiple people in a row! Why, do you know how much one of those babies go for? My God--the money we would lose!!!

      (not to mention---see what a "man"or "mannish woman" I am for owning one?)

      And let me guess: Gubmint has no business in a private gun sale, right?

      You know, but gubmint did make 231 new restrictions regarding women's private health.

      I guess guns are more sacrosanct than a woman's right to privacy..OBVIOUSLY

      And you know, they now blame mental health for all the shootings.....but I guess since Obama suggested increasing access to mental health: it's DOA

      I know--let's PRIVITIZE mental health, so it's very expensive, then the R's will go for it! after all: at the bottom of it all is always the bottom line

      And even tho we regulate cars, homes, women's bodies, food, medicines, poisons, etc...for the common good i/e GENERAL WELFARE of the country:

      I guess a deadly weapon that can kill in a second is the one thing we need to keep gvt out of.

      How dare you take away the freedom to take drugs!

      *******

      And i.m getting furious at the comparison of a fetus to a human being.

      People will hold women hostage to a mass of cells....should make you question your opinion on women, because it's very low.

      And--these idiot goons in America have made it impossible for abortions, while they prevent ANY restrictions on guns....

      An inanimate object receives MORE rights that a fully formed female human being.

      Their Male God is an idiot! Let me tell you something: God is not the misogynist YOU make her out to be!

      Here is what Obama proposed, and what the misogynist phallus worshippers (gun-lovers) denied:

      1. Getting rid of background check loop-holes

      2. Banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines

      3. Making schools safer

      4. Increasing access to mental health

      ******

      That's it. That's the big bad tyranny that Prez proposed. And it failed to even get considered in the Tea Bag Congress.

      So--go cry me a river.

      What they want is MORE shootings (so we will all run to buy more guns), MORE big pharma (ka-ching, ka-ching....guns n meds go hand in hand)

      And NO abortion. NO freedom for women in the 21st century.

      And a fully-armed populace. GOD--what a nightmare.

      Forcing us all to have a gun.

      Not to mention......

      The Black Panthers really WERE under attack by the gvt.....they were being hunted down and killed!

      Black people were being treated worse than dogs.

      But when they took up arms against the gubmint......YOUR sainted Ronnie Reagan immediately implemented gun control!

      This is hypocricy. You can't have it all ways under the sun.

      If you want to take up arms against the gvt: police are the gvt!

      If you think you are heroic......why aren't you joining the war?

      Basta!

      Peace, not war.

      Human nature is no more violent that it is loving.....we LEARN how to act from observing and experiencing our surroundings.

      WHY we keep perpetuating violence means we must LIKE it.

      The deceiver is truly in charge.

      Ben Carson?

      Didn't he oh so smugly compare homosexuality to bestiality? And the audience laughed or clapped.....

      another one...why are Reps just plain mean?

      Saw Trump--he said all he wanted was fairness.....well gee bud, join the club!

      That's all anyone is fighting for in this place.

      And it's like pulling teeth!

      Fairness for all minorities...including gays, Ben.

      Fairness for Palestinians *choke* swallowed my muffin

      Fairness in quality of life *snort* coffee went up my nose

      fairness in sacrifices made for this country.........

      All the bennies have gone to the top.....what's fair about the rest of us having to pay it back?

      Do you have a kid who's a young adult?

      Can you honestly say that he or she has it as easy as we did?

      Get real. They have to make their own way...and it's why they don't give a crap about dinosaur politics......

      Guess who they like? Sanders!

      He's a new-way thinker.

      And he's been in politics all his life....go figure.

      BTW--I really hope some reporter somewhere will ask Trump what KIND of jobs he will create....we are looking for quality of life jobs, not work to the bone for nothing jobs.

      And--what are his feelings on unions? Not police...all Reps seem to love the police union.....I mean industry unions.

      Thank you.....zzzzzzzzzzzz Oh sorry--you're still on a Trump high

      And where are Webb, O'Malley and Chafee??? It's as if they don't exist!

      For that matter......how come I never see Sanders speeches broadcast? Even on C-Span.

      Trump I see round-the-clock

      Ever hear of saturation fatigue?

      I'm sure everyone saw the picture of the dead little child on the beach.....this is the neo-con world they're offering us.....still think it's worth it?

      If so, you need your head examined. Not to mention your heart. You remember that thing right? Been closed for along time, but used to mean a lot here.

      Is it possible, when they shot the dreamers, they killed our hearts along with them?

      Bravado is no substitute for a heart. Not in a million years....Cruz,Trump,all the other war-mongering idiots.

      It's REAL easy to hate....try loving. That's hard. Imagine! That's the world we're in now! Love used to be a given!

      I mean agape love...for everyone.

      When those forces killed Kennedy, King and Kennedy......did they kill America's Heart? Subconscious, or just like a mass psychological breakdown?

      I did use to think we were in some kind of group hypnosis after 9/11....trauma. And then came the lock-down. And now comes the crack-down. And still you support it....

      Well, I know one thing....those mofo's have some big retribution coming their way....I mean BIG

      For every little baby on the beach......and there's been a lot

      Keep spouting rah rah rah....and sis boom bah

      10 happiest countries--USA isn't one of them!

      We rank 17th for happiness.

      http://www.financialjesus.com/how-to-get-rich/top-...

      By gum....some of those happy people are socialists!

      Don't have to worry if they or their kid get sick: they won't be fired.

      Don't have to worry if they or their kid get debilitating disease.....healthcare for all.

      Don't have to wonder if you can go to college..it's free for all!

      Sound like a dream to me......so many stress-filled moments because we are wound tighter than a drum here in America.

      Have taken kids and snuck them into work before....

      Have left them home alone sick.....could not afford to miss a day's pay.

      Stressed about illness

      Watched my parents go broke from cancer

      Stressed about school vacations and 3 day weekends and teacher days and conferences......

      Stressed about money --always never having enough

      Going hungry

      Doing without.........BAH HUMBUG!

      For what?

      It's stupid.

      Crapitalism is a failure. Crony, corporate WHATEVS....it sucks.

      People deserve time to smell the roses...and enjoy their kids and parents before they pass on.

      Not stressing 24/7 so some fat cat creep can have a villa in S of France!

      Poverty IS the crime in America!

      People suffer in it

      Wall Street profits from it

      Politicians sway fools with fear-mongering it

      The fact that ONE PERSON gets to have billions.....not by working harder, being smarter...but actually: by criminal activity. The saying "behind every great fortune is a crime" didn't come out of nowhere.

      And the fact that Americans worship these criminals is unimaginable to me.

      At LEAST Gotti took care of his neighborhood........who takes care of poor people here? Better yet: why do we have to have poor people????? Aren't we "the richest country on earth? Don't we have as a spiritual leader a man who said "sell all that you have and give to the poor"?

      Listen...you know what the problem is? We are full of sh*t, and everyone knows it but us!

      I'm starting to feel misogyny everywhere..and I don't know if it's real, or I'm just too sensitive to the issue....

      Now I see that a lot of Obama donors are really pushing Biden to get in....what's wrong with Hillary?

      Carla Fiorini.....does she have a chance?

      And Ben Carson.....IF people really are angry about Planned Parenthood body parts crapola...they will have to address Carson using fetal brain tissue....or they won't do it: because it's really NOT about fetal tissue...it's about abortion, and women controlling their own lives. And he's anti-abortion, so you'll give him a pass on what you demolish PP for.

      Same way you had "pro-life" people, who accuse American women of "butchering babies", and call our American president a "baby-killer"--stand and cheer for Netanyahu, whose policy is free abortion for ages 22-33! (or something). I/E: why don't you "pro-lifers"condemn Israel for "butchering" babies? How come you don't call Netanyahu a "baby-killer"?

      See? It doesn't seem to be the principle you are so against......only when American women are doing it.

      and this feels like misogyny.....

      and it really makes sense, in a way-- since female energy will prevail for the next aeon, and we're used to the male side of things......

      Nobody likes to give up power, do they? Even those who ride the power of another.

      All corruption in US gvt started with Obama...remember that.

      And even if they do stuff...they're not deserving of hearing after hearing after hearing, and constant repetition on the news.

      And if you don't like what they do: there's something wrong with you.

      ONLY right-wingers are pure.

      And by golly--if you insult Republicans, you'd better dam well insult Democrats, too.

      Am I crazy? I just don't see it:

      "All Dems are liberal, and all Reps are conservative."

      1st if all...if you're really liberal: you take a back seat.

      And conservs have said the same thing for years: their party in its current form is not conservative!

      And we saw in ACA debate: Univeral healthcare Dems were out of the discussion.

      We are seeing now, the hard-core far right: Trump

      versus

      The establishment Republicans.

      And some would say neither represent them!

      I'm just tired of every one being painted with the same brush, dem and repub.

      And we have third parties that are always shut out: but you can certainly join if you want! Explore their message.

      And if we are the ones who send these people to Washington...well, whose fault is that?

      America's a big place. There is no chocolate and vanilla of politics.

      And the establishment parties R and D, are hardly the same! I mean...HARDLY.

      People keep saying :they throw out these little issues to divide us"....tax cuts, minimum wage, WAR, abortion are not "little issues"

      And--as we see-as someone who personally does not want war, most official Dems feel the same way.

      ALL of the official Reps are gung-ho to punish and defeat.

      So, what's the same about that?

      I agree completely....and it's one component in how I gage presidential candidates...so far, most get an F from me.

      "The choice before members of Congress is thus a clear and simple one: Do they owe their primary allegiance and loyalty to the United States of America or to Israel?"

      http://www.veteransnewsnow.com/2015/08/15/congress...

      Even Trump said it...hell, he sounded like Obama!

      "Our roads and bridges, infrastructure are crumbling...we need to fix America"

      Deja vu, dude. Obama-vu

      So why you want to spend American kids and money on more military spending, threats of war? For what? Your "good friend?"

      listen, I know you're a master of the universe and all.....but you don't represent all Americans, either.

      We have been put down, demonized, slandered, thrown out of places for our view......

      And now------it's Day of Reckoning.

      'The choice facing members of the U.S. Congress in September’s “disapproval” votes could scarcely be clearer and has little to do with the merits of the international agreement reached on July 14 with respect to Iran’s nuclear program."

      Oh yes...America is in decline....by design. Much like the planned destruction of the USSR.

      Began in 1980's with the Trickle Down Grand Theft, which is still ongoing, the election of the Tea Party to control House and Senate, Neo-Cons embedding themselves in every level of gvt Dem or Repub--beginning 1970's!, and too many pols allowing Bibi Netanyahu to control our policy.

      And speaking only of my life-time.....the murder of the Kennedy bros, MLK, Lennon, Hendrix......all who spoke out against this parasitic grip

      All the dirty-dealings of our secret gvt......

      Suppressing anyone and anything that stands in the way of their Fascist greed......

      The wages so far out of line w the cost of living as to be laughable

      Continuous war, which as we all know, is a big racket

      Oh yes--it's declining: as planned

      But, there is a counter-plan.

      I'm waiting for it to come to fruition......and then the love will bloom like an opening flower.

      Just awakened, after decades of sleep

      Cannot wait!

      Minimum wage is $9.00 an hr (my state).

      That's $360.00 a week before taxes if you work full time.

      "Chief executives of the nation's largest companies earned an average of $12.3 million in total pay last year -- 354 times more than a typical American worker."

      And you're telling me they can't pay their workers more.

      ******

      2015:

      Housing

      Food

      Gas

      Heat

      car insurance

      Bills, etc etc......electricity is now 30 cents per kh....because you know, the wind farm would have made our rates go up, right Koch? DERP

      300 bucks a week?

      In 2015.......sorry: that's guaranteed needing help from somewhere.

      Mom, dad, state, or federal......

      No way around it: unless the price of things go down....but that's tied in with profits too, isn't it?

      Looks to me like biggest recipients of gvt largess is business.

      Pay dirt wages, and gvt makes up for food, housing and medical that people need to live....
