The Gap Widens
The gap between the 1% oligarchies and the wage slaves gets wider by the day. The Stock Market just hit 1,500. It has never been this high and the corporations are making record profits than ever and yet the workers are paying for this as the wage gap just keeps widening so what are we to do? The elected politicians won’t help. They are in the pockets of the money people, but some of the world leaders are starting to get nervous about the level of anxiety of the poor 99%. There is no jobs and what there is pays very little and no health or pensions. When people have no hope, the masses can be very dangerous. All that is missing is a leader or leaders, such as Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., Walter Reuther, John F. and Bobby Kennedy, Malcolm X or Gandhi. When the leaders do appear we had better hope they are good ones and if they are we had better protect them from being killed like our old friends “Abraham, Martin and John.” Now will the new leader or leaders be something like Anonymous or someone like Julian Assange and Wikileaks, who will build coalitions with groups, such as unions, Occupy or just working people who will fight for a better life and a fairer share of the economic pie for themselves, their families and other workers. Our government leaders cannot expect the youth of our country to earn a college education and then work for minimum wage. They will rebel and then add all our military veterans returning to -- what? When they were in the Middle East our government was allowing jobs to be outsourced or privatized. The politician should also realize that not everyone can go into business for themselves so what is left for the majority of the working people. How long do you think they, the graduates and veterans, will put up with no jobs or hope? We are starting to boil a pot of toxic stew, which will boil over and be very costly, and it does not have to happen. The government and greedy oligarchies just have to wake up and do the right things. And if they don’t, they have no one to blame, but themselves.
