Experts Predict Strong Employment Growth for Santa Barbara County Economy
Oh dear…Okay..,.First of all, a quote:
[The Chicago School of Economics is] a great center of contemporary scholasticism. The economists working there and produced by it are as important to the stagnation of useful thought as the Schoolmen of the University of Paris were at the height of the Middle Ages… Like that of the Paris scholastics, their mastery of highly complex rhetorical details obscures a great void at the centre of their argument… A large number of America’s economic problems could be solved by shutting down the Chicago School of Economics… The purpose of closure would be simply to disentangle a tendentious ideology from its unassailable position within contemporary power structures. The same sort of liberating shock treatment was applied to European civilization in 1723 when the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) was disbanded. The effect was to set free the ideas of the Enlightenment.”
–John Ralston Saul, 1994
Second, a few FACTS which I’ll simply title “Economics 101 for Slaves:”
My theory below is based on the following premise by Hazel Henderson:
“The problem is, of course, that not only is economics bankrupt but it has always been nothing more than politics in disguise… economics is a form of brain damage.”
So, based on that statement, I will argue that economics is an elaborate illusion and, yes indeed, merely “politics in disguise.”
The entire SLAVE-based economy is, in FACT, the political structure itself. Indeed the entire economy of the world has been and still is deliberately engineered by the very few men in and of the REAL POWER STRUCTURE. These very few shadowy figures, i.e. the Trillionaires, the Robber Barons, the Tycoons (take your pick) are firmly in Control. It is THOSE people who have been and still are pulling ALL THE STRINGS of the mere Puppets in this OSTENSIBLE government (Look Up “Ostensible” and see FDR).
So these Robber Barons, who themselves comprise the ACTUAL POWER STRUCTURE, have succeeded for quite some time to keep a fairly tight lid on too much knowledge, learning, awareness, fact-based truth; Since learning and discovering actual FACTS would, of course, lead to bitter protest and violent revolt, and maybe even a fate far worse such as that of the French Revolution for just one example.
There is a veritable myriad of totally intentional distractions, deliberately designed to hide the truth, real history, FACTS, specifically the global slavery, massive theft by very deliberate schemes to defraud everyone, YES, that’s US; And, of course, the rampant plunder of all finite natural resources.
These distractions are very effective and are used on any and every thoroughly contrived “side” of the political spectrum; The entire “Left”-“Right” paradigm, for instance, is one of the most useful and effective of such contrivances; People are left confused and belligerent bickering about so-called “Issues,” that are by design and placed right under their noses: Abortion, Gun Rights, Animal Rights, you name it… All Contrivances designed to distract the general populace away from the really big picture.
The game, then, is to distract the fools Away from what the Robber Barons are actually doing: That is STEALING everything they can get their hands from US, the Americans, through FRAUD; And STEALING from every other godforsaken country on earth by brute force (WAR), that is, PLUNDERING, i.e. theft of other sovereign countries’ natural resources.
Every technique to distract is used; Mass media, which of course is wholly owned thereby entirely controlled by CORPORATE governance; Thus, the media outlets report NOTHING useful and everything asinine and inane. No matter the technique, All are forms of intentional trickery.
So, skipping straight to the late 20th century, 1980 specifically, the emergence of Ronald Reagan and “maestro” Alan Greenspan, here it all really began: the beginnings of the Total DEREGULATION of ALL industry; Shipping manufacturing jobs oversees, gutting the entire U. S. economy; the utterly Fantastic LIE of ”trickle-down” economics; And the new “service” economy: A boatload of low-paying thankless jobs with no benefits, i.e. the NEW SLAVE.
All these conspired deliberations worked hand in hand to set the new and more all-encompassing SLAVE-based economies (Yes, that means ALL OF US) and the Modern-Day Slavery, at least a veritable form of sharecropping; Working more and more for less and less, all while never being able to climb out of debt…Sound familiar, at least? 80 hour work weeks and still climbing, declining wages and declining standard of living, forever locked in debt…Sound familiar at least???
So it is that every [Puppet] Administration after Reagan–Democrat, Republican–every single government tool of the REAL POWER STRUCTURE Did follow, in lock-step, the ongoing and now thorough DEREGULATION of every single industry and the Privatization of ALL previously public sectors. Just wait till water is unaffordable.
And then there is Clinton, of course, who was among the most destructive of these so-called leaders, as he is the one that repealed the Glass-Steagal Act that had been put into place by FDR after the Great Depression of the 1930s, regulating the criminal banking and financial sectors. Clinton did this, knowing very well the history of the worst economic crash, and also whilst knowing the certain ramifications [of giving a gigantic idiot-child a machine gun, i.e. DEREGULATION];
But doing it anyway for his billionaire buddies in the Banks and on Wall Street who bankrolled him into office; That, along with the passing of the Graham-Leech Bill, took away any and all restraints, i.e. REGULATIONS, from the banking industry and the financial sector.
So!! Look around NOW!! The “Powers” tanked the economy deliberately; They want, for lack of a better term, Zombie-Slaves that won’t think or even ask why: (IDIOT-AMERICA). And they’ve sure GOT them and they’ve got them by the BOAT LOAD.
Slavery Then and Slavery Now:
The main difference (other than race, i.e. skin color) between slavery then and slavery now, is that NOW is that those few men whom are still in cahoots and “controlling” the people, the governments, etc., are thoroughly capable of committing mass Genocide; Indeed, it has become quite apparent that now we are all headed straight toward the edge of the Abyss at their command; And Engineered genocide is a clever and historic tactic; And that works too. They’ve been doing it all throughout history. Whether by Guns, Drugs, Prisons, Wars; You name it!! The main goal is very clear: Let “them” kill each other and themselves, on the battlefield, in the ghettos, in the many privately-owned, For-Profit Prisons, etc., The message is clear: Let them ALL simply DIE OFF.
For those that Disagree:
By the way, ALL of the others, women, Blacks, et al, are MARGINAL, at BEST, in this grim little charade. Meg Whitman, for example, is rich, but she’s still totally disposible; The women, the Blacks; They’re all, in Fact, mere Dupes in this “GAME.” And actually I blame it ALL on the ENTIRE HUMAN SPECIES; The Human animal is simply put, to quote John Gray now, an “exceptionally rapacious Primate.”
And further, I blame people for sheer and stubborn stupidity. Rather than seeking actual facts, most humans willfully choose to believe ENDLESS LIES and stupid fairy tales. People, as a rule HATE FACTS. Of course, on the most fundamentally impervious and horribly pervasive levels, Absolute Stupidity has morphed into a VIRTUE in America!! And it’s a Stupidity that is so base, so wide-reaching, that the destruction is total now. We’ve now reached the point of NO Return.
What a majority of the electorate, including supporters of corporations/capitalism fails to understand is where we really are: Owned and operated by multinational corporations that hold absolutely no allegiance to any nation, Constitution or system of moral authority. Corporations who pick our leaders, buy our representatives, count our votes without oversight or confirmation, taint our food and foul our water and air, sicken our workers and benefit from their deaths. The corporations’ allegiance is to only money; nothing else. They pay little or no taxes, yet they impose policy and write laws to limit our power and unleash theirs.”
The TOTAL Failure of the American people to recognize, to realize, to even momentarily acknowledge the complete Corporate TAKEOVER of our government, is the American Way. Total Ignorance. Total Hypocrisy. Total Injustice. INDEED!! This IS the American Way!!
I’ll leave you now with a few quotes:
“The death-knell of the republic had rung as soon as the active power became lodged in the hands of those who sought, not to do justice to all citizens, rich and poor alike, but to stand for one special class and for its interests as opposed to the interests of others.
– Theodore Roosevelt
“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”Franklin Delano Roosevelt
“Corporation cunning has developed faster than the law of nation or state. Corporations have found ways to steal long before we have found that they were susceptible to punishment for theft. But sooner or later, unless there is a season of readjustment, there will come a riotous, wicked, murderous day of atonement…. These fools on Wall Street think that they can go on forever! They can’t!”Theodore Roosevelt
“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”~ Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864
‘I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered..'” ~ Thomas Jefferson, 1802
“There are plenty of ugly things about wealth and its possessors in the present age, and I suppose there have been in all ages. There are many rich people who so utterly lack patriotism, or show such sordid and selfish traits of character, or lead such mean and vacuous lives, that all right-minded men must look upon them with angry contempt…~Theodore Roosevelt
“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” ~Sinclair Lewis
“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell
“When fascism comes to America, it will come in the form of democracy.” ~Huey Long
“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.”~Franklin D. Roosevelt
“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.

A 21st Century Challenge
“I am absolutely convinced that no amount of wealth in the world can help humanity move forward–even in the hands of the most devoted worker. The example of great and pure individuals is the only thing that can lead us to noble thoughts and deeds. Money only appeals to selfishness and irresistibly invites abuse. Can anyone imagine Moses, Jesus, or Ghandi armed with the money-bags of Carnegie?”
I now know beyond any doubt whatsoever that, as Balzac wrote, “Behind every great fortune, there is CRIME.”
These cretinous trillionaire and billionaire “ people” [criminals] should be tarred, feathered, paraded around in dunce caps and handcuffs, and then summarily and unceremoniously EXECUTED in a public square.
Indeed it is these wealthy CRETINS who are the true dregs of society; They offer nothing at all of value; Rather they suck away at society and everyone that crosses their vile, reprehensible paths, right along with their counterparts in our government, the corporate whores. Idiotic arrogance, abhorrent racism, unforgivable stupidity, base covetousness, inexplicable greed is all they possess. Let them go about their brainless, despicable behavior, deluding themselves in the face of all odds, all the while destroying every one in their paths and indeed destroying the entire world itself.
The likes of these cretins, the wealthy whoremasters and their greasy little minions, the corporate whores, know nothing at all. In FACT, they are reptilian; Their small amygdala-minds are thoroughly undeveloped, totally unenlightened. So laugh directly AT them… Then smack ‘em hard in the mouth and tax ‘em at 1,000%.
BUT WAIT!! The wealthy Cretins are actually hilarious and amusing to watch carefully…And before you know it:
Why, they are simply Grotesque!! Hideous little Idiot-caricatures…Some kind of brainless, rapacious, spineless and puffy little dunces, pushing wildly and flailing uncontrollably to get to the front of the slop-trough so that they too can roll around in their own FILTH and SPOILS. Let them have it.
So…Why is it that I laugh?
Because the Cretins are so fucking Stupid that it is INSANE!!
So!! Let ‘em have ALL their filthy lucre;
Watch em roll around in it for a while…
Until they can all wipe their asses with it…
And keep laughing heartily, right in their blank faces, right into their blind eyes.
Amuse yourselves at their expense.
So, my advice for y’all is this and call it a rule of thumb:
As the ship goes down, Rise above it all, always and forever. Let the besotted fools bicker, rant and rave and let them have their pathetic little power plays and spoilt-idiot games, all while we enjoy our own rides, always far above THAT and THEM.
Transcend; Not just sometimes, but ALWAYS.
NEVER give UP and NEVER give IN.
Now, feel totally free to speak your truth whenever you feel like doing so; Any where, any time.
So, before our fleeting lives finally end, let us bask in the absurd. And let us share everything, every bit of any wealth before we die; Let’s share it with those whom we know need it.
YES!!! SHARE!!! SHARE whatever good fortune is bestowed upon you, whether small or large, SHARE it ALL with others.
