You know what they want?
They want obedient workers. Obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for your Social Security money.
They want your retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you, sooner or later, ’cause they own this freakin’ place.
It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it.
You and I are not in the big club. And by the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head in their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy.
The table is tilted folks.
The game is rigged, and nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-working people — white collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on — good honest hard-working people continue — these are people of modest means — continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a crap about them.
They don’t give a crap about you.
They don’t give a crap about you. They don’t care about you at all — at all — at all. And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on; the fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes everyday. Because the owners of this country know the truth: it’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.
The owners, as Carlin calls them, have you and me by the balls and the latest blunder in not legalizing cannabis is just another example showing us that Carlin was right. We are not represented by our leaders and perhaps it’s time for a new way of engaging with society. We are so dependent on these owners that it’s hard to imagine life without them.
But it’s these owners that make billions on piling corpses, wage war using our sons and daughters as toy soldiers in an endless conflict that bleeds the color of oil and money.
Don’t be fooled by the theater. You are the product…you always have been. The question is, now that you know, what can you do about it?
