This week after Sunday Morning
I stayed tuned in to watchFace the Nation
and a well written rant or two by Bob Schieffer and found myself just mesmerized by his witty and sardonic truth saying about the new (old) Ayn Rand philosophies running rampant (allegedly) in the hearts and minds of many in Politics today. Where it can be said that I do not dislike Obama, though to me the Reps and the Dems are the same pary with different ties…I have not really been a fan of Rand as her feelings that the poor are nothing but parasites makes my skin crawl. I was always taught that we are only as good as our weakest link, but that does not mean we pitch the weak in the trash heap, cut their heating oil or deny them birth control. Balancing anything on the backs of children or the elderly or even people who just are having a hard time of it makes about as much sense as giving people who already have more money than they know what to do with more money. If you are making money off of people, if you are reaping from the masses then you should give back to said masses. Carpetbaggers, Flim Flam men, Snake oil salesmen these are the sorts that get rich selling manure and yet refuse to help plant seeds for the future. The Earth, our world, our people and all of nature is just a commodity at their going out of business sale.
Yes I believe we should have some balance, we can start with the oil companies and their record profits. They remind me a bit of giant Pig mutants sitting on their mud thrones and complaining about the people that give them all the slop they are so happily wallowing in.
Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself… All men are enemies. All animals are comrades.” – ‘Old Major,’ Animal Farm
Still not sure why all my Youtube linkage died, dies or just is not showing anymore but I left it hoping I will figure it out. Till then…
