Yes, vulture capitalist Thomas Perkins is a motherf***er of the highest degree, one who f***s his own mother, his wife’s mother, their respective mothers, and indeed, any mothers he can lay his scummy little mitts on. Adding to that is the sense of entitlement to the mothers of the world, an outraged response to anyone who suggests that he leave all those mothers alone, and a proposal that he and others like him have laws passed reserving all American mothers for themselves alone. An honest motherf***er is he.

Mr. Perkins made an analogous proposal recently: that only taxpayers be allowed to vote, and that the richer you are, the more votes you can cast. Said it straight up and did not try to pass it off as a joke. And he has not yet walked it back as he did (partly, anyway) his comparison of people like you and me to Nazis. This is what the rich motherf***er really thinks.

And he isn’t the only one: five Supreme Court “justices” said pretty much the same thing when they imposed the Citizens United ruling on the nation. That ruling made money into speech, meaning that those with more money have a right to more speech. This is the wealthy trying to take over our government, and having some success at it.

But unlike Tommy Boy, most of the other motherf***ers don’t admit to being f***ers of mothers. They talk about “freedom”, and “unfettered capitalism” and other such buzzword-laden tripe, and pretend that their vision is not at all Orwellian. But they want the same thing he wants, make no mistake about it: a plutocracy, wherein the rich rule the rest of us.

But honest or not, he wants to f*** our mothers. And the rest of us. So f*** him.

(Next time: motherf***ers crying about being “attacked”.)

Yes, that hypocritical parasite is lapping up luxury in Switzerland at our expense. This after telling unemployed Americans that there was no money for them.

It is time for America’s hard-working citizens to realize this truth: we send billions upon billions to these lying leeches in our taxes, and they blow our money on luxury trips, private barbers, and shovel millions of dollars to their billionaire buddies. And then they tell us that the country is broke. Bull-f***ing-s***. We aren’t broke at all. There is a lot of money there.

But the money is wasted and stolen by the “trickle-down” crowd in Congress. A perfect example: Cantor’s luxurious trip to Davos will cost more in a day than an unemployed person will get in six months.

Repeat: Eric Cantor’s luxurious trip to Davos will cost more in one single day than a REAL hard-working American’s unemployment benefits would cost for half a year.

Sick of Teapublicans yet? Then for crying out loud, stop f***ing voting for them.

Today is the official start of the Davos World Economic Forum, during which some of Earth’s richest and most powerful people convene in amazing luxury to decide who will win and who will lose. And wonder of wonders, a few bits of common sense are appearing on the horizon:

Number A: Japan’s recent turnaround, which happened after they finally gave up on Voodoo Reaganomics, was the keynote topic;
Letter 2: income inequality is on the agenda; and
Thirdly: Oxfam’s recent gruesome report on just how badly the rich and powerful are f***ing the rest of us is being looked at.

Looked at is good, but acted upon would be better. The report’s gist is that across the world (as in America since Reagan) the rich and powerful have rigged the game and are gleefully piling up filthy lucre, which is putting billions of people in a no-win, guaranteed-loss situation:

The Oxfam report found that over the past few decades, the rich have successfully wielded political influence to skew policies in their favour on issues ranging from financial deregulation, tax havens, anti-competitive business practices to lower tax rates on high incomes and cuts in public services for the majority. Since the late 1970s, tax rates for the richest have fallen in 29 out of 30 countries for which data are available, said the report.
This “capture of opportunities” by the rich at the expense of the poor and middle classes has led to a situation where 70% of the world’s population live in countries where inequality has increased since the 1980s and 1% of families own 46% of global wealth – almost £70tn.

The 1% of the world are a load of purblind fools who have either never read history, or stupidly think they are smarter than billions of other humans, so let’s make this plain for them, shall we? Oxfam’s report clearly (and correctly) points out that this fleecing of the many to benefit the few is creating instability. In other words, revolution is around the corner.

It happened in France. It happened in China. It happened in Russia. It has happened, can happen, and will happen anywhere that people are being treated unjustly and feel that they have nothing to lose. And right now, Gentle Reader, nearly 3/4 of the world’s population feels that they have nothing to lose.

In America, it will continue until the “Republicans” who were and are behind the scam get voted out of office. And if they don’t get voted out of office soon, shit’s gonna go down sometime. And it will be bloody and destructive in a mammer such as the world has never before witnessed, and will not be confined to our shores, because the great robbery has happened around the world.

And it’s ridiculous. Can you wear more than one suit at a time, eat more than one meal at a time, drink more than one drink at a time? Hell, no. Beyond a certain point, acccreting further wealth becomes useless and meaningless. As well as dangerous and destructive.

You. Cannot. Keep. Abusing. People. Forever. Eventually, even a dog will bite back; people will do it sooner than dogs. And the “bites” of humans will do a lot more damage, too. Earth to Davos: you have the people gathered in one place, at one time; the people who can change this horrible state of affairs (many of whom helped to create it, and who have benefited from it). If you don’t change what’s happening, then you can’t change the outcome.

And regardless of of what the 1% may think, the outcome will destroy them, just as it will will the 99%. Davos: you can change the outcome; and if you don’t, well, even all your riches won’t buy enough soap to wash the blood of billions from your greedy, clutching hands.
