Cavalcade of rant
Back to the usual "top stories" of cat antics, hair malfunctions, and celeb mischief. And as always thank you for shopping at K Mart. Seems the little guy never gets a break in this world. After getting hit with the worst earthquake in the nations history Haiti gets a hurricane two years later adding insult to injury. After two years of living in tents (jeez even Bush wasn't that bad) the island nation experienced Issacs' force as the hurricane passed on it's way to the U.S. mainland. What meager tent dwellings they had were ripped apart by the storms winds. There's really nothing left of this nation. It's been raped for centuries. It's natural resources were looted, corruption rampant and little hope for the future. Once again the few have managed to exploit the many kept ignorant and impoverished.
And on the other side of the spectrum we see the banksters walking away scott free to bask in the Bermuda sun with fat Swiss accounts compliments of the underdogs they raped. It's laughable to see the response to the world economic situation. The can keeps getting kicked farther and farther down the road. After all the longer the can is in motion the more money's to be made. They know that when the kicking stops the game will be over and so will that nice tidy cash flow. Call a meeting to decide when you'll hold that G (fill in a number) summit with the creme de la creme of the economic set but you're not fooling anyone. Nothing will come of those meetings and we know it now. Just another excuse from a bunch of deadbeats. You're sitting on all the worlds' cash and you don't want to part with so much as a penny. Just how does one become so greedy? Momma didn't raise you like that.
The latest "we're going to look into the matter" red herring is the expose of the pubs. That'd be bars here in the U.S. That may be a good start but better territory might be in the brothels or with the call girls of DC. I'm sure they'd have some titillating tales to tell. Pillow talk might get you a cell with Madoff if the truth be told. But just how vulgar and nasty this Greek tragedy will play out is anyones' guess. It's only a matter of time because you know somebody just loves having the goods on somebody else. It's the way things operate in that town. Bribery and blackmail are big business but let's not be crass about it. I believe the term is now called "influence". He/she with the most power and money rules the roost. It's only now that the facade has been stripped and we're seeing the ugly face of the lust for privilege. No compassion for the victim now. Not even hiding the intent.
So there you have Sunday's rant. I don't make it up. I just call it like I see it.
