CHANGE I do not believe in

29 years ago in the first Political Science course of my college major, I read the following;

I didn't buy this crap then nor do I buy into now.

However I think some of our elected officials do.

" You must therefore confess that by individual you mean no other person than the bourgeois, than the middle-class owner of property. This person must indeed, be swept out of the way and made impossible."

Nevertheless in the most advanced countries, the following will be pretty generally applicable:

1) Abolition of property in Land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.

2) A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

3) Abolition of all right to inheritance.

4) Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.(are you a rebel ?)

5) Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.

6) Centralization of the means of communications and transport in the hands of the state.

7) Extenstion of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing
into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance
with a common plan.

8) Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies.

9) Combine Agricultural with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction
between town and country, by more equable distribution of population over the country.

10) Free education for all children in Public schools.

..."The bourgeois claptrap about the family and education, about the hallowed co-relation of parent and child, becomes all the more disgusting, the more by the action of modern industry, all family ties among the proletarians are torn asunder, and their children transformed into simple articles of commerce and instruments of labor."

by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels

I have a confession to make about President Barack Obama

He seems like a polite guy. I've read both his books. I've reviewed his speeches and voting record in detail. I'M ON HIS MAILING LIST.

Below is the most recent letter I received from President Obama.


As we head into the final stretch(still haven't seen a real bill) on health reform, big(mean) insurance company lobbyists(how many are in your administration ?) and their partisan allies hope that their relentless attacks(war reference) and millions of dollars can intimidate us(huh?) into accepting the status quo(what?).So I have a message for them,(I'm president and you're not) from all of us: Not this time.(look angry) We have come too far(applause). We will not turn back(finger point). We will not back down(cheer).But do not doubt(glare) -- the opponents of reform(not yet clearly defined since you came on seen) will not rest(pause and refocus). So I need you, the members of Organizing for America(fundraising election group), to fight alongside me.We must continue to build out our campaign -- to spread the facts(you mean 5 different 1500 + page bills?) on the air and on the ground(battle references test well with organizers) and to bring in more volunteers and train them to join the fight. I urgently need your help to keep Organizing for America's 50-state movement for reform(never defined) going strong. Please donate $5 or whatever you can afford(10 % + unemployment) today (website here)

Let's win this together,(win what ? your next election)

Seven National Crimes

1. I don't think.

2. I don't know.

3. I don't care.

4. I am too busy.

5. I leave well enough alone.

6. I have no time to find out.

7. I am not interested.

from William J H Boetcker

...and now you know how the government does what it wants to the people
