I’ll be a guest tonight on Coast to Coast…
But I wanted to get in here a few things I may or may not get to talk about. I had a dream about a month ago I meant to post but didn’t because I became distracted. In it I was an African-American woman walking around my neighborhood in Philadelphia – how I knew it was Philly? I have no idea, I just did. Everything seemed fine when a riot broke out. I was running for cover with my child in tow toward a store. Once inside things seemed fine and didn’t seem to affect me or the store I was in which was run by a local woman who was very affable and spiritual.
Occasionally I have dreams where I am other people and I get names and very specific information and have actually googled those names when I get them and freakishly enough – I find information on the narrative in the dream and the names connected to it in the places I’ve dreamt them to be. I often have no idea why, sometimes they are connected to crimes, other times they are benign.
In this particular dream about Philadelphia I had no idea why I would be dreaming about this or what the names of the people were as the main theme was getting out of dodge.
The other thing I got today from my guide or the part of me that knows things, which I had revealed (in the original post back on December 6 of 2011 about Romney losing the election) as a side note I had mentioned Republicans were going to lose seats.
Well today it was revealed to me in much more detail. I won’t go into the numbers I got about the House and Senate but lets just say that it’s a majority on both sides. I am reticent to post the numbers because I don’t want people to feel they can sit back and relax, so I’m not going to post it publicly. I will create a private post that I will release on the night of the election.
On a personal note I want to say I went to high school on the North Shore of Chicago – one of the wealthiest areas of the world. My father died when I was ten and my mother struggled to make a living and collected social security to help raise myself and my brother. I worked at a Chinese restaurant at the take out counter to buy clothes for school. I worked my way through college and got scholarships. We were not rich in fact we were lower-middle class. We had been much better off when my father was alive. My mother used the sale of the home my father and she had built in Winnetka to buy a condo in Wilmette. I lived in the poorest town that was serviced by my high school. I went to school with kids of CEOs and the ubber rich. I can not tell you how many arguments I had with kids who reflected the side of the Republican party we are seeing – that poor people were just lazy, useless slackers and in fact I lost several “friends” once they realized I didn’t live in a mansions like they did. These kids once they found out my social strata actually just never talked to me again.
The dark side of the wealthy mentality is being exposed. Not all wealthy people are like this of course, there are many charitable and noble people who are wealthy but this odd worship of status and materialism is absolutely the most common ideology espoused by the wealthy 1 percent born into wealth and given too many advantages and hand outs to even be able to fathom what hunger, fear of losing of ones home or property, having to pay for their own college education or having to work 80 grueling hours a week just to make ends meet – I mean real work, not taking money dad gave you and using it to invest in the hard work and toil of other people who you just profit off of. This world I grew up mixed with kids like myself (who were the minority) lower, middle-class, upper middle-class and wealthy kids.
It became clear the more a family struggled appeared commensurate with a person’s ability to empathize with other people’s pain whether that be financial, personal, or emotional.
This mindset simply doesn’t exist for anyone born outside the (constantly shifting which I guess is why they try so hard to stack the cards on their side) plutocratic class. It is something that most people were unaware of until now and something that no matter how much I informed people of my own experiences people just didn’t want to believe me. I suppose it’s because we imagine ourselves as we are in those positions and can’t possibly project the bubble that encapsulates those who make it their business to have absolutely no contact with the unwashed masses.
I always thought it was odd because many of these kids were no more likely (in my estimation) to be successful in their endeavors than I was, but then again, I wasn’t working with a safety net.
There is real and true disdain for those who made the grave mistake of being born to parents who weren’t rich among those miserly plutocrats.
I saw first hand how kids who did poorly in school got into Ivy League Universities based on how much money their parents gave to these institution. Again exposing the unfair playing field these sort of people want to play on. I saw first hand that money was the true religion of these types – that like some people of faith who want their children to stay within their own faith to marry – these kids were to date and befriend only those within their wealth induced delusion of a modern aristocracy. I had privy to this due to the enormity of my high school and the fact that I was in gifted classes and the assumption was that because I was academically and artistically gifted this meant I was also wealthy. Of course as soon as these assumptions by those who befriended me were shown to be false I was ignored like the rest of the unwashed masses of undeserving losers that 99% of the population falls into.
The rhetoric from the wealthy has been manipulative and made to seem on one hand as if they have compassion for those less fortunate and on the other hand we have the Koch brothers of this world vigorously working behind the scenes to further their own personal acquisition of wealth – for what purpose? Having a dozen quarter of a billion dollar mansions isn’t enough while people starve?
And our 4th estate – the media, which was sanctioned by our Forefathers to keep the state transparent and was supposed to be duty bound to the truth only to be deregulated by Republicans – giving Murdock (owner of FOX News) the opportunity to play Leni Riefenstahl for the Republican party. And why? For the love of money. I wonder sometimes if these people realize they will one day be dust in the ground like all of us unwashed masses – that no amount of money can change that reality.
If in fact they truly were religious or spiritual people, they would use their money to lift other people out of poverty instead of spitting on them. At least Murdock actually employes people even if it is with the ultimate agenda to sell his own financial agenda to those who would least benefit from it by using standard propaganda techniques. He gets that unfortunately for him, the 1 percent who DON’T actually have an aristocracy, don’t have the power in the most powerful nation in the world. It is WE THE PEOPLE who were endowed with it by OUR CREATOR and OUR FOREFATHERS. These plutocrats have sought to turn the tables and bring us back to the ways of Feudal Europe – you know the one our FOREFATHERS fought against. These are not AMERICAN VALUES – these are PLUTOCRATIC VALUES and something we must as a people always be on guard against.
