Alleged Problems: Real Solutions

Alleged Problems: Real Solutions

By Frank Scott

There are more than 300 million people in the USA.

492 of them are billionaires.

That represents roughly 16 millionths of 1%.

In decimal form that’s 0.0000016, or as a fraction,
16 over 1 million.

This is not the 1% the Occupy Movement imprinted on
(some of) the national consciousness.

Even an innumerate person can understand that represents a
teeny, tiny, microscopic portion of our supposedly democratic,
equal opportunity, propaganda spouting world’s most deadly
military killing machine in history.

But hey, we’re a free enterprise system, right?

Those less than 500 of us are brilliant, industrious, hard working
people who’ve earned every penny of that money by getting up
early and getting off to the foundry, office, factory, school,
hospital and sundry other places where people work, while the
rest of us - roughly 99.9999984% – are loutish chumps (except
for a small professional elite who were smart enough to become
servants to that 16/millionth) who, if we work much harder,
regularly attend religious services and even more regularly take
good drugs, can also hope to join them up at that fractional
faction, of a factional fraction, at the top.

Someday. Sure.

It’s in the Constitution. Or the Declaration. Or the bible?

Well, maybe a comic book?

Meanwhile, at the other extreme of our population, far more
people, actually tens of thousands, live in and on the street.

They sleep in shelters, which put them up for the night if they
are lucky enough to get in, and put them out in the morning.

Or they sleep in cars, doorways, under bridges, and on park
benches, if there is no room at the inn – oops – shelter.

But not to worry, theirs is not complete despair, abject misery
or living death by comparison to the opulence enjoyed by the
top fraction and its servant class.

Our bottom dwelling humans who absorb the most extreme loss that
ultimately benefits upper level private profits can avail themselves
of free food dispensaries at least once a day.

And free health clinics and hospital emergency rooms when their
economically and elements weakened state brings on illness or

And if they drop dead in the street and are not claimed by
relatives, they are guaranteed publicly financed burial in
Potter’s Fields.

That’s after their bodies have been used to train future doctors and
nurses, assuming the ravages of their lives haven’t reduced them to
former human but now garbage offering no useful parts or organs as
tools for medical education.

We also have tens of millions of pet dogs and cats which live in
warmth and comfort, are often loved as members of our human
families, are very well fed and have health care from thousands of
pet clinics staffed by educated veterinarians, including oncologists.

This in a nation where some die in the street and no one even
knows they had cancer until their unclaimed bodies are used for
medical experiments.

Those may seem uncommon extremes of the social order, but they
are factual and not the healthiest sign for a nation and culture in
which many still believe that we are superior to others, and if not
a master race of people, at least an exceptionally wonderful place
to have a family, raise a dog, tap a phone or aim a drone.

Given that and the fact that the overwhelming majority of what is
called the scientific community warns us that our treatment of the
planet’s human and other resources is bringing us closer to a failure
and possible breakdown of society previously inconceivable, what
would you say we should be most concerned about?

What happened at Downton Abbey?

The outcome of the NCAA March Madness?

The chances that Miley Somebody’s twerky tongue will grow
a foot longer?

That Pussy Riot will move to America and host next year’s
Academy Awards?

Nope, nothing that important. Guess?

Putin, and Russia’s attempt to take over the globe and make
us all eat evil black bread!

You’d think as much if you read, watch, listen to and especially
believe what you’re told by our nation’s corporate ministry of
disinformation, which has been beating the drums of war for
years now but most recently over this alleged renewed threat
from Russia.

And where is the evil Cossack saber poised to strike at the burgers,
fries, Fox TV and PBS series we so love, cherish and would die for?

Right on our very borders at the Ukraine!

Well, though it actually borders on Russia and parts of it like the
Crimea have actually been in Russia and millions of its population
identify with and speak Russian you might think it was in downtown
Dallas, or uptown New York, for the way it has been treated by our
sometimes, telegenically attractive, brain dead media mind
managers, and their pin headed mentors, in our Hollywood-for-ugly-
people Government.

This would be laughable if not hysterically so, but for the fact that
what passes for leadership, like the president, secretary of state, a
wannabe president, and half wit critics of those dim bulbs because
they aren’t warlike enough, dominate what passes for discussion on
an issue that could lead to even greater stress on a failing system,
if not a blunder into a war that might just bring on collapse that
much sooner.

There has never have been a better time to totally disregard
corporate media and to be extremely careful about what passes
for its “alternative”.

Study a map of the world and also look at the material reality
of the USA that’s neglected by those who tell us about it rather
than allowing us to experience it.

Learn to respect your neighbors and turn anger at those who
allegedly represent you but are owned and operated exclusively
for the benefit of that top minuscule minority and their servants.

Demand and create social transformation before these people
and their system destroys us all.


You can call that process democracy, revolution, or lunch.

The substance is what matters, not the label.
