CAPTION SATURDAY.

   

I need a caption for this pic.

For example: Carson: Donald, all that money and  you are  still rocking a Timex? Cruz:Mine seemed to have stopped. I bet it was made in China.

The Donald: I started running for President little more than six months ago. Right from the start, the mass media pushed the theme that my appeal was limited to the angry weirdos in flyover country. Once my poll numbers started to climb, they stopped calling my voters weirdos, but stuck with the angry motif. Every discussion of me now includes at least a side bar on the “angry voter.”

Tony Montana: Mass media still has to sell crap so they try not to be too obvious when insulting their customers. The whole “angry voter” bit it just a polite version of “bitter white trash losers.” The reason the white trash losers are angry and bitter is they are stupid and did not go to college. Instead of having glorious self-actualizing careers like being wrong on TV, they are at home munching on oxy, watching Jerry Springer and bitching about foreigners. So the theory goes, least-ways.

The Donald: This made perfect sense as the mass media has always made its money off the middle-class. American news is 10% reporting and 90% proselytizing. That 90% gets old fast unless you have some bogeymen. For as long as I have been alive, working class whites have been treated as life’s losers. In a nutshell, the mass media is “buy this, say that, wear these, do this” so you are not one of those proletarian losers down at the Walmart.

Black Ben: The truth of the matter is there’s not much of a “working class” culture anymore. That died out in the 70’s when large scale factory work was replaced with service work. The people in my neighborhood are called the “working poor” but there’s not many of them working. In modern America, working class and working poor both mean not working. The life of a welder or car mechanic is nothing like what our betters imagine.

Tony Montana: None of that matters as the point of painting the Trump vote as angry, toothless peasants pissed off about losing at life is to try and scare the middle-class into going along with the bipartisan fusion party candidate. It is not an attempt to explain; it is an effort to frighten and stigmatize. “You don’t want to be lumped in with those people do you?” is what is supposed to be heard by the viewers, even when the presentation is less explicit.

Black Ben: Motherfuckers.

But most girlie girlies like to play with your mind
They like sporting new gold and riding in cars
And most of them, they, they don't care who you are

And to most of them you're nothing but another statistic
Who's ever got the money, they're all on his
Y'all can save it for David, 'cause I know what time it is

Interesting article, thanks for that. No doubt capitalism like everything else needs checks and balances, without such it becomes like a game of Monopoly. No doubt we are gravitating towards the feudal system that Hutton implies with the gig economy building lavish underground basements, swimming pools, etc for the 1%. And like everything else, stating the problem is easy, solutions are a lot more difficult. Hutton's solution is world peace, constraining banks and financial markets, power to the people, which is all well and good. So why, when we have in Bernie Sanders at least one presidential candidate who no doubt embraces these principles (perhaps Clinton does as well), do you dismiss him as empty rhetoric?

The Purple Cow said...

"So why, when we have in Bernie Sanders at least one presidential candidate who no doubt embraces these principles (perhaps Clinton does as well)*, do you dismiss him as empty rhetoric?"

Simply put, I want to see more meat on the bones of what Bernie is saying. In principal you can;t argue with his analysis, but how exactly would he go about achieving what he wants to achieve when the vast majority of the nations' elected legislature (let alone the forces of capitalism) will be against him? Just saying you are going to give America back to Americans and revive the American dream is one thing, how is he going to do that in the real world? I think the last twenty years has shown us just how hard it is to get things done.

Even now it's not too late to save America, but does Bernie actually have the guts to do what really needs to be done? Nothing would make me happier if he does.

Quote Joshy

"You're just too dug in on this make-believe Josh-as-the-enemy persona you decided to create from day one to look cool as the Brit black to the American blacks y'all try so hard to emulate, bruv...."

"Y'all try so hard to emulate bruv...." He actually said that. Does that make sense even to him, do you think?

...and he wonders why I consider him the enemy??

Maybe you're right Josh, maybe you are not my enemy. Maybe the fact that - like most fascists these days - you call yourself a 'Libertarian', is not a reason to hate you. Maybe the fact that you are a racist who can only assert his manhood by coming here to call us " dumb motherfuckers" and " slow cunts" every single day is not reason enough to hate you.

I'll just have to think of some new ones.

@ the Purple Cow. If Bernie wins the Dem nomination and is elected, I think we'll have a better chance for change than with Hillary, whose compromised relations with Wall Street are well documented. His consistency of point of view, expressed over at least four years, will probably have some effect in educating our sorry electorate, and maybe enough so that the constituency of Congress changes over that period. I think we can rest assured that he will stay "on message" during his term and that his cabinet appointments etc. will reflect his point of view. Hillary is compromised re: Wall Street and is already hated by most leading Republicans, so she would hardly be able to break the insane partisanship. Either one in office may be able to make new appointments to the Supremes and turn around some of the worst court decisions in history.

"Obama's reckless mismanagement and massive cronyism is about to send the world into a depression. The next President will inherit a disaster."

Of course Obama is personally responsible for capitalism's innate contradictions and for the reckless fiscal policies of the Chinese government. Of course he is.

That makes total sense Brainiac, now why don't you go for a lie-down in that darkened room over there? And the nice young man in the white coat will be along with your medication shortly.

This is actually my sons joke. He's melanin enriched ;) so when ever I ask him what time it is, he looks at his wrist and says "Not sure but it's dark outside"!
Ahahahaha! Well I think it's funny!

Then he adds, "Look what this sun has done to me, I was born blonde and white, and look at me now!"

To which I add "yeah and don't forget you had blue eyes!"

Then my other kids would chime in "and we had straight hair too!!!"

@Purple Cow 9:18AM

So what you are saying is that what is missing from Bernie's platform is how he can implement it when he is shoveling shit against the tide, as it were? Certainly a very defeatist perspective, the very response that the right wing has been conditioning in us for the past 8 years. Who other than a right winger can meet that criteria? Look, you can cast aspersions on the motives of any politician, but the real world is in fact a political one. Like I said before (here) I have not seen any evasiveness from Bernie (well at least until today, a bit, on gun control and details of funding his universal health care proposal). Certainly more meat on the bones than what Hillary has put forth. And off the charts compared with the "VOTE FOR ME I AM A MAGICAL MOTHERFUCKER" from Butt Trumpet or any other right winger.

Bernie Sanders Reverses Course on Gun Immunity Vote
...
Sanders has said he was open to reconsidering the law, but said last week his vote was "not a mistake."

But in a statement Saturday night, Sanders said he would support legislation recently introduced by...


http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/bernie-sanders-reverses-course-gun-immunity-vote-n498101

"not a mistake" until Hillary calls him a gun nut for supporting the second amendment and he has to react.


Hey FieldNegro, if gun companies can be help liable for what criminals do with their guns, can GM also be held liable for selling cars to drunks that kill innocent people?

The Purple Cow said...

"A flip-flop by another name is still a flip-flop."

As Bill Clinton correctly pointed out the electorate likes flip-flopers. The obsession with politicians never changing their minds is one only shared by political journalists.

Bill Clinton was the most corrupt President in history.

His wife has history of seamy, money grubbing scandals like no other politician in memory. She is possibly going to be under federal indictment at the time of the convention.

Many in the Democratic Party are sickened by the Clintons, and Sanders offers a clear choice of a principled and uncompromised candidate.

The Purple Cow said...

Lance, I guess one man's defeatism is another man's realism.

To clarify my position, what Bernie is seeking is not particularly difficult thing to achieve in of itself, most of Western Europe already operates successfully along those lines. His views and policies are not exactly radical either, he is well to the Right of me politically - he is a box-standard social democrat, of a type that can be found behind every bush and under every rock in Western Europe.

However, trying to achieve what he wants to achieve in America is a very different thing indeed. Not only will he have a majority against him in both houses, he will have the might of the American menia against him doing the will of its billionaire owners. There are a 1001 vested interests in America, (think military-indistrial complex, think health care insurance companies, to name but a few) who will not sit idly by and watch America become a fairer and more decent society because it is not in their financial interest for that to happen.*

So to achieve what he wants, Bernie is going to need to radicalise the citizenry, he will need to get them on the streets demanding (as Lenin said) "the bakery, not just the crumbs on the table". He will need to forge alliances with other interested groups - the trade union movement, public service workers, government workers, health care workers, students, the unemployed, pensioners etc. All these things he will need to do, I want to hear him talk about that.

Of course all of that is prefaced on the promise that America can be reformed. It might be too late, it could be that America has to be dismantled and re-built in a new culture and a new structure.

*Though as an aside, I think it is in their long term financial interests, but the problem lies in the phrase 'long-term'. Too many companies in the Anglo-Saxon world are in thrall to shareholders, who will always demand a short term return on their investments. The post-war economic miracle that happened in Germany and Japan both took place in societies where there was very little public shareholding. This allowed German and Japanese companies to take a long-term view of what was good for their organizations at the expense of short-term profits. It was only when Germany and (in particular) Japan started to adopt the Anglo-Saxon model that things started to go wrong for them.

Crazy wingnut update:

It might interest Field Negro readers to know that there are not only dumbasses of the Caucasian persuasion currently camped out in that wildlife refuge out in Oregon; there are also apparently dumbasses of color, too.

Meet Brandon Dowd, Ammon Bundy's black friend.

Brandon says he was motivated to join their militia movement by the inspirational example of Ammon's father, Cliven. (Was it Cliven's eloquent "one thing I know about the Negro" speech?)

Brandon is outraged about the feds' violation of his "right" to privacy -- in a very un-private park in which he and his like-minded (no-minded?) group are illegally trespassing.

He also thinks stealing land from taxpayers and "common law grand juries" (aka kangaroo courts with no legal authority, convened to announce phony charges against people one dislikes) are quite reasonable political proposals the rest of us should seriously consider. We should all give a hearing to the backwoods "constitutional lawyers" (*chortle*) he's been hanging out with.

He also says the Oregon crew has some useful things to teach Black Lives Matter.

Freedumb!!!

Dear Mr Field, I don't know if you FN folks are aware but there is a Democratic debate tonight. I noticed you were on top of the Republican debate, but not the Dems....Why?

Fyi, Bernie Sanders is in the lead and probably will be our next President. As a bm, I feel Bernie is our best choice. Hillary is corrupt, lies and not trustworthy.

Anyway, thought I'd let you FN Negroes, Black and White, there is something important going on tonight.

PilotX said...

We used to have laws that forbade upper management from being compensated in stock and they had to have the public and corporate interests in mind when making decisions. I think these laws were weakened sometime during the reagan administration and now they have a fiduciary responsibility to the shareholders and not the corporation or community. Seems a simple tweak to this law would help corporations take a longer term view and possibly even slow outsourcing. Who knows?
