Medicine for profit: social neglect

Need proof?

“The bottom line is that insurance companies make money when they don’t pay claims,” said Mary Beth Senkewicz, who resigned last year as a senior executive at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. “They’ll do anything to avoid paying, because if they wait long enough, they know the policyholders will die.”

"I predict a riot"

From a site titled "Gathering of Eagles."
Eagles are a wonderful symbol of . . . empire of course.

The second point of their mission statement:
We are a non-violent, non-confrontational group. We look to defend, not attack. Our focus is guarding our memorials and their grounds.

Here is what they've got planned for 3/17/07:

Gathering of Eagles is an act of love by thousands of veterans who choose to honor the sacrifice of the fallen by guarding the memorials from those who would desecrate them on March 17th in a “peaceful” anti-war rally in Washington D.C.

It is also an act of war, a call to action for every American who chooses to stand and say “No more!” to those who would spit on our veterans and ridicule their service to our nation.

We invite you to join us March 17th, as we stand together as one to ensure that the sacrifices of our fallen and the memorials that remember them are not tarnished by the ungrateful.

I think this is a gathering of liars. Their intention is to confront and defend.
You can't do that without fighting.
They advocate the war, so certainly they advocate violence against anyone disagreeing with them.

Evidence of a new Gilded Age

The government favors the large over the small, the strong over the weak, the ones whose lawyer bills are paid in advance.
The government favors the corporate over the citizen, sheds the drop of blood to gain more dollars.
Polarization is on the way. Just keep on, keep on.
A new naturalism will indict those in favor.

The numbers will only keep growing

The facile creeps in this government who aren't facing the fire, and most of whom, I must add, have never faced it, had better do something about this.

So here are my future plans

1. To begin my exam readings this year.
1.5 To edit my bomb paper for the spring conference.
2. To take all my exams within a year-and-a-half.
2.5 To edit the bomb paper for publication in the future.
3. To write my Romantic Atlantic thesis.
4. To write a history of the Americans in the sealing trade.
5. To write a definitive history of the rise of the Shakers in America.

Yes, I think all that should be enough. For the time being.

The deception of mission

Principle has been supplanted by interest in public dialogue.
Purposefulness, clarity and simplicity are gone, all betrayed by the reality of empire.
There is no American nation.
There is an empire imposed from above us by those with the most economic & political agency.
The American nation will have to be recreated, because the Constitution & Declaration have both been abandoned by those in government.
Every time they raise their hands to preserve, protect & defend the Constitution, they lie.
So the American nation doesn't really exist now.
Such a nation will have to be the product of another revolution, which must encompass the complete alienation of the corporate & current elites from power.
The party is too rich, loud and stupid; it makes me sick. I want it to be over, and I mean it.

A Reality Shaped by Licentiousness

It is time to write in order to clarify my most essential point with respect to the world I've got. The United States government, in its creation of an empire beyond North America, has behaved licentiously and criminally in the interests of elites. There is no sense of mission in them, there is only the base desire to control resources and intimidate those who live in proximity to them.
The United States government has become the creature of elites, has turned its back on the desires and needs of the American people.
Who are the majority?
Those who work.
Whose voices are the most muted in government?
Those belonging to workers and the majority of citizens.
Can a government run by a privileged minority be said to be republican or democratic?
No. It is, in fact, an aristocracy.
There is no merit in aristocracy.
There is only money, which takes the place of merit, principle, and mission.

Yes, I know I haven't written here

in more than a month, but I've been busy.
I've decided that this blog needs to take a turn away from political discussion, and toward something broader, something more literary. Rage is an awful thing, it seems to empower where it consumes.
I've decided I don't want to be consumed any more. I can direct my energy toward other things.

I am quite sure

she has slept with the father of lies.

Separation of church and state is "a lie we have been told," Harris said in the interview, published Thursday, saying separating religion and politics is "wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers." end quote.
