On A More Rational Economic Philosophy

Filed under: American Culture,Economy,Socialist Progressive — Morwen Madrigal @ 9:55 pm

I am going to open this with what I believe is a more sane concept of what America is about, how our form of economics has moved us forward and what this means as what we are as a Nation… the promise that has been offered to the Modern World for many decades. It is a model that has worked and has changed cultures for the better.

First off, our Constitution states that our government is one by, for and of We The People. It’s stated purposes are to deal with trade, foreign relations with other countries, provide for the common defense and to maintain the General Welfare of the People who are equal stake holders in this Sacred enterprise. This means that each and everyone of us are a part of the equation that insures this county’s success.

It is said in the Environmental Movement that “All of Life is a chain, and when one link is harmed we all feel the pain”. This is perfectly clear to me. That so many cannot see this blows my mind. I have been employed in different occupations and I have worked at all levels of them. I have been a manager in most of them in the end. I know how these machines work: that which works and what cannot work.

It takes many different types of workers in order to take and idea and bring it to the market: laborers, artisans, mechanics, designers, packers and those who deliver the product to places where sales folks send them because customers desire the product because marketers did their job as directed by those people who serve as mangers. Many different levels and skills are involved, and each and every one are a necessity. Lose one link in that chain and the project fails.

I believe that payment for work must be based upon success of creating, producing, marketing and sales of a product. The end result as far as money goes should be reflected on the return of every level of labor involved. If there is a 25% increase in the Net it should result in compensation at all levels of the chain that made such profit a reality, not just given to top management as their increase in pay. It took the entire chain to bring such a profit to fruition.

That is fair in my mind.

Now when we look at current corporation manipulation of worth as their machinations of moving assets around just to increase a dollar total such fairness cannot exist. The top tiers will claim the boost because they are only manipulating the process. That doesn’t increase wealth. It only inflates numbers.

To me that is not why a business exists. Any business that uses such measures in order to please shareholders who only demand profit should be fined accordingly. It is not doing real business . It is fudging to use a nicer term. There should be no profit to the shareholder if that which they are invested in are not creating true wealth. It is a sham and an act of robbery upon each and every person working for said company.

The shareholders may scream, but they are the ones who ultimately choose the Boards that run these ventures and their responsibilty is to choose people who can create wealth and not just swipe capital from other sectors.

Remember we are all in this together as a country.

I’m Getting Pissed Off at Obama

It looks like Obama-nation is getting screwed again. Appointees from the Clinton (“I did not have sex with that woman”) Administration, a decision to not prosecute the Bushite fuckmooks for war crimes and being just a limp dick when it comes to the fixing of our Bush-destroyed economy.

Can my Gentle Readers feel that I am freakin’ upset and pissed off? That I sense that we the people have been betrayed… sold a bunch of goods that are not what was advertised?

Damn fuckin’ straight.

I have a song runnin’ round my brain (and it ain’t “Cocaine”)-

“We’ll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that’s all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain’t changed
‘Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again
No, no!

I’ll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I’ll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do ya?

There’s nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Are now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again
Don’t get fooled again
No, no!


Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss”
The Who

I didn’t sign up for this shit.

13 More Days…

I can’t fucking wait to get that fuckmook Bushite out of office and see him hide away in his posh new Dallas enclave.

(I also wonder if the Feds will allow Cheney to keep his bunker since his coffin and grave dust is there.)

I Knew This Was the Truth…

The moneyed Cross-wearers are now worshiping their true God. It only took time for them to reveal their true object of worship- the Almighty Dollar/Baal. “Lord! Why hath I been forsaken?”

This comes via Wonkette-

Did I ever tell you that these creatures eat their own? It’s true.

“Buddy, Can You Share Some Bootstraps?”

Toulouse Street has a great piece today that addresses the fears of those in the “we can take care of ourselves unlike ‘THOSE’ people in New Orleans” concerning their Ruling Party’s almost absolute destruction of the economy and the fallout they will have to deal with in their lives and familes.

Ya’s know those kinds- the Can Do’s, the Heartland types and  others who looked down on those decadent NOLANS. Well, we are surviving our disaster. Can you survive yours? Do you know how?

Here’s the opener for the post-

“America is worried. What it will be like to lose your home and all your possessions, to see your job shipped off to another town, to be forced to pay out the mortgage on a house no longer yours while you try to make the rent? Will the government help me, or will all those hundreds of billions in aid they voted just evaporate into people’s pockets before it gets reaches the average person?

How, they worry, will they survive such a catastrophe?

I suggest they have a parade. It worked for New Orleans.”

Read the entire piece Gentle Readers. It’s good advice for these times.

Are Freddie and Fannie Bonnie and Clyde?

Here’s a breaking piece that show the dangers that comes with lobbyists who are not regulated.

This bullshit from 2005 is now costing us billions. Each and every one of those who part of this scheme should be put on their knees and shot.

‘Nuff said.
