The DUmmies are revolting!
The DUmmies are revolting! Again! Once more the cry goes out, "To the streets! Man the barricades! Liberté! Égalité! Fraternité!" The oppressed masses are RISING UP!
The call to revolution comes in response to the utter FRUSTRATION voiced by DUmmie Cyrano in this THREAD, "Why are we letting ourselves get screwed … and screwed … and screwed?"
Do you hear the DUmmies sing? It is the stuff in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, letting the DUmmies know they can start the revolution without me, is in the [brackets]:
Why are we letting ourselves get screwed … and screwed … and screwed?
[How many DUmmies does it take to screw themselves? All of them!]
I believe the answer is because we are both unwilling and unable to do anything about it.
Who’s destroying our country and our lives? We know a few names like the Koch Brothers and Rupert Murdoch. But most of them are faceless, nameless, incredibly wealthy people.
[THEY are destroying us! RICH people, without faces, without names!]
But even if we had the names of our owners, what would we do about it? My guess is, not a damn thing.
[An indirect challenge by Cyrano to rise up and DU something!]
Somewhere along the way, we lost the ability and the knowledge of how to stand up to oppressors. . . . We’re on our own, we’re being raped, pillaged and plundered, and we are doing absolutely nothing to put an end to it.
[Shake, rattle, and roll. Rape, pillage, and plunder. It's what we oppressors do.]
So here’s my question for anyone who thinks they have an answer. Given the vast power arrayed against us, what can we do to salvage what’s left of our country and our own well being?
[Is this a trick question? . . . Now let's see what answers the oppressed masses have . . .]
simple: demand campaign finance reform and a return of the Fairness Doctrine
[Well, that's simple! One, two, and we're done!]
the people have been duped into believing . . . that challenging power is "crazy", yet Europeans do it successfully all the time.
[DUmmies are all Euro-wannabes.]
This country's not going to turn itself around until we see a few good riots in the streets.
[To the streets! DUmmie backscatter712 issues the call!]
Riots in the streets will be put down with maximum force and brutality.
[Oh, Cyrano, you're such a Debbie Downer!]
We can vote, donate, give our time. Call, write letters . . . it's worked well so far.
[I detect a note of sarcasm.]
It's not difficult to find out who "they" are.
[Look for rich people with no names and no faces.]
Nobody's coming to our rescue, if we can't help ourselves. Don't wait for some sort of messiah and don't get too deeply invested in charismatic "hope and change" figures. You are the revolution.
[Remember that, DUmmies: YOU are the revolution! Doesn't that just fill you with confidence?]
The rich are merely the most successful con men, thieves and sociopaths. You cannot (99% of the time anyway) get to be rich without lying, cheating, stealing and generally conning people out of their money. There isn't a single multi-millionaire in this nation that is not guilty of at least one of those and probably all of them on a daily basis.
[Class warfare much?]
So the question becomes, why riot? Why not assault their mansions and put all the wealthy crooks under citizens arrest and take back out country!!!
[Citizen's arrest! Citizen's arrest! < /pyle> ]
Tear down their walls, put them under siege. . . . They all are guilty of crimes against humanity. . . . Jail them all!!!
[To The Hague with the lot of 'em!]
Brothers and sisters in the military and police, join with us when the time is right.
[I'm sure they're listening.]
There is a good chance that they'll side with us and march along side us to the houses of the rich.
[I can see it now . . . in Fantasyland!]
Are you suggesting a "Rambo-like" solution?
[I think it's more like a DUmbo-like solution.]
The immediate result would be anarchy. And after that, who knows?
[Like this is really going to happen in the first place!]
Disunity among the screwees.
[I think you're all pretty screwy!]
Too many of the screwees think they are "standing up for freedom" by bending over for exploitation.
[That's how benburch rolls.]
Dumbed down schools where "making the grade" - AVERAGE - is considered a resounding SUCCESS!! . . . This carries over into sports. Everyone gets a trophy just for SHOWING UP. The kid who whines . . . the kids who bust their ass on every single drill, every single play - get the same stupid trophy. . . . So the ones who aren't "so smart" want everything the the "smart" ones do - but they're not willing - and not even capable - of working for it. . . . They want to drag us all down to their level.
[Thank you. You have just described succinctly the problem with socialism.]
ap x pe = tp (amount of pain multiplied by the number of people experiencing that pain equals the tipping point)
[IQ x 00 = DU]
I think the word I'm really searching for is brainwashed...and in an odd way, naive.
[I think the word I'm really searching for is brain-dead...and in an odd way, NUTS!]
Direct action in our local communities. . . . Strikes. Boycotts. SPONTANEOUS protests. Mass Civil Disobedience.
For whatever it's worth, our species has been screwing the planet and each other since we gained sentience all those millenia ago. There's just more of us and we talk about it more now. . . . The revolution ain't coming any time soon.
[Tomorrow's revolution has been canceled due to lack of interest.]
democrats sold their soles for campaign money.
[And so they were defeeted.]
They always screw enough to hurt but not enough to break.
[Mr. Ben LIKE it like dat!]
Shut the f***ers down. STOP watching tv, STOP buying their crap, STOP supporting anything those bastards do. . . .
[Not One D*mn Anything!]
They are already winding us down and have robbed us significant resources to affect their plans, which means they no longer significantly care if we feed their beast.
[They! I hate Them!]
Their tentacles are already stretched around the globe. . . . Do you suppose it's possible that UFOs are actually watching us to make sure the vultures can't escape from this planet to loot other civilizations out there?
[They want to loot Uranus!]
At this point we should be aggressively in the streets. . . .
[Instead, we're sitting in our basements posting about a fantasy revolution that isn't going to happen.]
Direct action in your spare time isn't going to do much good as long as you support them 40-60 hours a week at your day job. . . . Do what you have to do in your own life to be able to implement, on demand, a general corporate strike. Don't work for them. . . .
[Not One D*mn Job! That'll show Them!]
