Bird With Two Right Wings
written by Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Bird With Two Right Wings
— Lawrence Ferlinghetti
And now our government
a bird with two right wings
flies on from zone to zone
while we go on having our little fun & games
at each election
as if it really mattered who the pilot is
of Air Force One
(They're interchangeable, stupid!)
While this bird with two right wings
flies right on with its corporate flight crew
And this year its the Great Movie Cowboy in the cockpit
And next year its the great Bush pilot
And now its the Chameleon Kid
and he keeps changing the logo on his captains cap
and now its a donkey and now an elephant
and now some kind of donkephant
And now we recognize two of the crew
who took out a contract on America
and one is a certain gringo wretch
who's busy monkeywrenching
crucial parts of the engine
and its life-support systems
and they got a big fat hose
to siphon off the fuel to privatized tanks
And all the while we just sit there
in the passenger seats
without parachutes
listening to all the news that's fit to air
over the one-way PA system
about how the contract on America
is really good for us etcetera
As all the while the plane lumbers on
into its postmodern
manifest destiny
and The Band Keeps Playing On !

The thing about money is that it IS a finite resource/commodity. Everyone can't be rich. Money has to circulate like blood flowing through a healthy body. If blood stops circulating to your leg it will start to die, cell by cell. Each "cell" of society, no matter what function they serve, will slowly suffocate without enough money flowing in their community. How can they get money if there are no jobs? How can they start a business if no one around has money to spend?

If rich people spent money at the same rate they earn it, there would be no problem. They would still have all the trappings of wealth and more. Some one has to make that yacht, build those sports cars, build that mansion, cook all those expensive dinners, etc. But at some point, they just don't need to spend more and so they don't. And so that money just sits, increasing and increasing and serving no other purpose; just bragging rights.

Very few rich people do what poor people think they're doing, which is pumping millions of their own profits and personal gains into new and existing businesses. So some degree, yes. But some of these businesses really just take advantage of people. Some of this spending is just to buy assets that cost the rest of us more money to use, but don't really employ many people.

But what doesn't seem to be finite? Is debt. The rest of us trade in debt and there isn't enough money in the world to pay it all back because rich folks always add interest. And this makes everything more expensive and makes living actually more expensive for the poor than for the rich. Because the poor pay higher interest rates.
The buy out of debt is buy only what is Needed. Big difference between Wants and Needs... Wants ruin the checkbook

One thing, I think is true is that the rich are not allies. They aren't really loyal to party or ideals. What they will do and support depends on their portfolio.
We are United by Name. ( united States of America ) benefited by States in a awarded separation. That means certain favorable states are given more stimulus.

It is amazing that so many forget that the Democratic Party they seem to despise nominated and then elected a Black man to the White House ... TWICE!

What has the Republican Party done for the majority of Black people in this country over the past 20 years?

Go ahead, I'll wait ...
