“Snorting Koch”

Is Plutocracy imminent for America?

As we approach the 2014 elections there are right-wing politicians running for offices throughout the country that have been bought and sold by the perfidious Koch Brothers, who have no desire to be part of this great country, only to use it to amass enough wealth to manipulate it and create a Plutocracy.

There’s no shortage of politicians willing to sell their integrity to people like the Koch’s to remain in office; willing to lie to retain a false sense of power and authority.

How do we fight this insidious malignancy?

“It’s Not Envy, My Friend”

This article has been posted on The Huffington Post. Click on the link to read it on HuffPost.

The unrest in Egypt is a microcosm of the sins of a global economy!

Egyptians, tired of oppression, wealth disparity, and the indignities perpetrated on the middle and lower income classes, revolted against this soft tyranny that has inflicted pain on the people over the last 30 years. The Egyptian people wanted to control their own fate. They wanted a new government and they wanted Mubarak to leave.

The world feared that the turmoil in Egypt would spread throughout the Middle-East — to Saudi Arabia, Algeria, and other oppressed nations in the region.

Clearly, the Egyptian people had had enough of high unemployment, the listless growth in the country, the transfer of wealth to the top one percent of the Egyptian population, and the gluttony of the Monarch!

If this sounds familiar, it is! The only difference between Egypt and the United States is the number of bandaids available and a media not doing its job in exposing the unsustainable problems we have on the horizon.

When will the Americans wake up? When will the oppressed populace take to the streets of American cities?
