The Next-To-Nothing Advantage

©2008 Stan Spire

Being down and almost out does have a couple of advantages.

Despite the economy going down the toilet thanks to our boob president, I don’t have to worry about losing my car or home.

But the main advantage is that I have time to read, research, and know a bit more about all the bullshit going on with the Elite who control this country.

The Elite wants the average Joe or Jane working long hours, fretting about paying bills, so that they’re too distracted to be aware of what is really going on. That’s how the Elite sold America on the War in Iraq. Most people were too busy to look behind the claims: weapons of mass destruction, Saddam was behind 9/11, all the lies. Joe and Jane were trying to get through another day. Sound bites are easy to digest. In-depth analysis takes time to chew on.

And when Joe and Jane America did have some free time, it was spent relaxing, catching a break from the daily grind. They didn’t have the energy to question the Big Lies from the White House. After all, George W must know what he’s doing: he was elected president.

The Elite don’t want anyone to have too much free time. After all, citizens might notice the smell of the stuff being shoveled down on them.

But the Elite are really screwing things up. With the economy sliding into a depression, people will be laid off, stuck at home, nowhere to go. And like me, they will have plenty of opportunity to think and challenge the BS.
