About Me

If you\'re reading this I suppose you are interested enough to make some small effort. I apologize for the endless run-on block of text, but DU apparently does not provide any means to do simple formatting. It is time to formalize an explanation of my username. Egalitarian adjective asserting, resulting from, or characterized by belief in the equality of all people, especially in political, economic, or social life. Thug Personal definition taken from the Reich-Wing\'s favorite moniker for people that belong to and/or support unions. I\'m old enough and have been through enough that I absolutely will not take shit from anyone, period. I know that what I know is right and has been proven right throughout history. There is only one division in the human race, those that are on top stealing from those that are not, and those that believe they will someday be on top and can then steal from those that are not. For the rest of us, our only hope is to be smart enough to realize that they need us to exist and we don\'t need them at all..

Long before they funded the teahaddists, they were also among the who's who of

funding sources for Al From's Democratic Leadership Counsel. Kochs, Coors, Chevron, Merk, the list goes on and on, created the DLC to do just what it's done, remake the Democratic Party in the image of the republican Party. Could that be why the DLC has tried so hard for so long to keep its financial sources "private"? Of course it is.

But a bunch of reporters (remember what those were), after digging for over a decade began to unearth some of the names. For anyone interested in verifying it, it's not going to be easy, because, quite coincidentally I'm sure, the stories listed in your web searches have frequently been "removed, renamed, or deleted" from site after site. The most recent one that I'm aware of was written by Bill Berkowitz.

Neo-feudalism.

Put yourself in the place of an owner and think about it. You're young and educated and have (hopefully) acquired the knowledge and thinking skills to achieve a measure of freedom. Free people make decisions about how they wish to live and many of them will choose to do something other than what the owners want them to do.

California built one of, if not the, best education systems in the world and made it free to residents for a generation. That one generation of Californians changed the world in virtually every field. Philosophy, Medicine, Sociology, Science, Technology, Politics, Art, Literature, etc. They intruded on and forever exposed a world that had been the exclusive province of the ruling class. Worse, they rejected just about all of the notions that that system of authority is based on. They proved that the commoners were not only equal in capability, but that through sheer numbers produced more and better leaders than the established ruling class. One generation from one large state threatened the entire social order.

So what better way to control the young, than to saddle them with large, inescapable debts that will force them to limit their options?

Exactly. There is no other occupation I can think of where the rewards are so large, the risks

so small, and the effort nearly nonexistent, as American politics.
