OK, I will say it… Rich motherfuckers don't deserve any more god damned money

Over half the world's wealth? Are you fucking kidding me? In a world where misery abounds, where poor and distressed people are turning to radicalism in order to alleviate their suffering, where the environment is being ravaged for profit, where the world around us is crumbling, we want to fatten the already overflowing coffers of the greediest of the greedy?

Fuck that noise.

This isn't about jealously, or envy… It's about basic survival.

Our economies have been stagnant for decades, wages frozen as the cost of living rises, becoming more and more expensive for those who earn wages to live. We've forgotten how to prosper. We've learned that empathy is for suckers. It's now our duty to love our rich masters at the detriment of ourselves and our loved ones.

I could go on all day about this, but I won't. The balance of power has been bought and paid for by the people who have stolen our futures. Little do they know that these things always require a correction, a reckoning. Forcing one will not make it any more palatable for anyone. It'll create general suffering to impel action.

At that time, after the chaos and the aftermath, people will look back and wonder why we let this go on for so long. They'll say that they've came to their senses where we have not. And after some time, in a moment of comfort and absence of due diligence, they'll start creeping into the same old mistakes that got us where we are now.

Past is prologue.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

George Santayana

Huckabee Slams Obama for Letting Daughters Listen to Beyoncé

Tuesday, Jan 13, 2015 • Updated at 4:27 PM EST

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has accused President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle of parenting by double-standard, in an interview published Tuesday, saying they shelter their daughters from some things but allow them to listen to the music of Beyoncé.

While promoting his new book, Huckabee told People magazine, "I don't understand how on one hand they can be such doting parents and so careful about the intake of everything - how much broccoli they eat and where they go to school ... and yet they don't see anything that might not be suitable" in the lyrics and a Beyoncé choreography "best left for the privacy of her bedroom."

Huckabee described the Grammy Award-winning Beyoncé in his book as "mental poison."
The first lady's office declined to comment on Huckabee's comments.
