True Or Not: We Just Can’t Be Sure

462_160History has always demonstrated that it is all a lie, or at least as it is taught or told. Not too long ago, Bush was viewed as the worst president of them all of them, now he looks like a saint compared to this guy. Even Chaney is looking pretty good in these times! History is always revised or told differently than the fact; one day 45 might be remembered as something of a savior or hero.

I can remember a not so good actor they praise today who was similar to 45. To that point, I lived during his reign and know his history; none of what the republicans preach or say about him is really true. Most of his senior level officials went to prison but they never talk about that Regan. He or his administration was alleged to have been involved in bringing drugs into the country. He was a horrible president! So you see that over time a new narrative is created.

I say that because the fix is in for this guy too. Look back at history, they taught us that Custer’s Last Stand, for example, was a monumental event – it wasn’t. This was the result of a hard headed fool general who was not a general but a colonel; who thought because he was white he remotely had a chance against all the Indians in the world; his 270 men against 1000’s. But his legacy is one of an astounding accomplishment maybe because it gave cause to the government to slaughtering the American Indian tribes in retaliation.

Here is my favorite, the Alamo; there were about 230 or so white men and one black man, a slave, held up in and old mud-walled church defending it in the name of Texas which was not on America soil against almost four-thousand Mexicans. Of course, all died and what happened; they made them heroes and made countless movies and books about them in the name of glory. By the way, most of the story they told was far from the truth. The whole battle lasted less than an hour. Think about it, how would anyone know what took place behind those walls?

Let’s look back at the founding fathers; they told us all these tall tales but in reality, all of them had devious backgrounds. Most were document slave-owners and the rest were segregationists or bigots. In fact, it was probably not until the 1950’s that a black person even was allowed to enter the White House unless that person was working there and black people build it. Oh, I may have misspoken; good ol Freddy Douglass may have been the only one who got in. For that matter they make movies making black characters white.

Most shameful however is they have removed Egypt from Africa and now claim aliens from outer space built the pyramids. As I have said before we can’t believe anything they tell us. Let me take this to the extreme and talk about this person called Jesus. First, if he ever existed he was black! What they did was make him the biggest weapon used to further white supremacy all over the world. The made him white on purpose for that reason but you can never convince people of this point of view.

Black people fought in every war only to return to America to live in the same dastardly conditions white folk created. Think about it black Americans fought for the freedom of other people in their lands to give them freedom but did not have it here in America. So how can one not say what truth is and what is true or not? We just can’t be sure! We never own up to certain people for the past in digressions of some when it comes to matters of race! And that is my thought provoking perspective…


Romney’s Bain

I am an uncompromising history fanatic and some call me an expert, but I prefer to say I am one who seeks the truth. While we live in an era when so much history is being made we should be excited for the time in which we live. Last week, for example, we witnessed the Supreme Court’s affirmation of the president’s signature legislation the health-care law the Good Ol’ Boys call Obamacare. This was the most profound piece of legislation since the “New Deal”.

So let’s talk about Romney and his past. He started and built the venture capital and asset-management firm which was nothing more than a money-making machine. So what’s wrong with that? Well Bain Capital is a company that doesn’t and has never made anything; it invests. It spots trends, looks at promising companies tapping into those trends and then stakes its capital on improving a company, using Bain’s sector and financial experts to, as they say, help company’s get over a capital shortage or help it expand.

The companies that Bain identified and invested in, and not in a small way, while Romney was at the helm, were Microsoft, Stream Global Services, ModusLink, and StatsChipPac. These companies are now among the biggest outsourcing companies in the world, with call centers, factories and facilities, mostly in Asia, but also across the globe, that support U.S. high-tech companies. The mission of these companies was to help big U.S. companies outsource and offshore. And let me add that this strategy was and is designed to support a low wage business model.

Even his own Republican cohorts like Newt Gingrich said: “The Bain model is to go in at a very low price, borrow an immense amount of money, pay Bain an immense amount of money and leave. I’ll let you decide if that’s really good capitalism. I think that’s exploitation.” Then slick Rick of Texas said: “There is something inherently wrong when getting rich off failure and sticking it to someone else is how you do your business. I happen to think that that is indefensible.”

So if he can be eaten by his own, who by the way does not appear to think much of his thinking, raise the issue – then why can’t President Obama raise the issue? Frankly, the president should have done so during the debate on financial regulatory reform. I should say there’s nothing inherently wrong with private equity, which plays an important role in the economy. Let me add that there’s nothing wrong with wealth and those who risk their capital in private-equity ventures should be rewarded when those deals pay off.

Romney himself acknowledges that the free markets need rules and regulations in order to function and we know certain dealings are prohibited and should be criminal like insider trading. So it is reasonable to ask whether some highly leveraged buyout deals, of the kind that Bain and other private-equity firms often conduct, should fall into the same thumb-on-the-scale category as insider trading.

Suppose a company is failing and appears beyond rescue. Suppose a private-equity firm buys the company with borrowed money, burdens it with more debt, and then spends the next few years firing workers, selling assets, eliminating pension plans — all while collecting handsome “management fees.” If you can recall losses at the nation’s largest and supposedly best-run bank, JPMorgan Chase — at least $2 billion and perhaps much more.

This is what Rick Santorum said in March: “I heard Governor Romney here called me an economic lightweight because I wasn’t a Wall Street financier like he was. Do you really believe this country wants to elect a Wall Street financier as the president of the United States? Do you think that’s the kind of experience we need? Someone who’s going to take and look after, as he did, his friends on Wall Street and bail them out at the expense of Main Street America?”

If you read my thoughts and words you know I don’t think much of the GOP or their henchmen but I agree with Santorum in this instance where I have to ask the question is this the guy we want to be president. I will go further and say Romney’s personality traits remind me of the “Robber Barons” of old. I would suggest that this so-called “Job Creator” needs to go offshore where he and his buddy’s send jobs.

Would he do this to the American Treasury and the American people if he were to become president? I say, yes! And that’s my Thought Provoking Perspective…

Cynthia McKinney Speaks

I am so empowered by the kindness of my readers who share powerful information with me to share with you. I received this audio clip that you must hear. It is a chilling reminder of what we lived through with the regime of the last administration.

Cynthia McKinney delivers a speech while Lord George was in power that gives us reason to vote because we should never want to go back there…

VOTE!!!

Does History Repeat Itself?

This is a powerful video that you must see!!! It explains how history repeats itself and what happens when power corrupts, and in the case of the last administration, was corrupt absolutely.

In a stunning indictment of sweeping policy changes during the Bush years, best-selling author Naomi Wolf (The Beauty Myth) makes a chilling case that American democracy is under threat. We must vote and not go back to the past.
