Boiling Pot

The boiling pot of discontent, fear and confusion is slashing over the lid fueled by the election, Black Lives Matter, Standing Rock protests, wage inequality, and a lot of these things are the residue of Occupy Wall Street, which did not solve much, but did start the pot boiling. Most of these concerns are not just felt here in the U.S., but are concerns for the world over. Then there is the wars, which are never ending and propagate the immigrant and refugee onslaught of the world causing more discontent wherever they go. Most of this is the result of greed by the world’s 1 percent, also known as the 1/10th percent, which is destroying the democracies of the world. So, what happens when the pot boils over? Does it extinguish the fire? Or will the world’s oligarchies try to slam a lid on the pot, and if they try the pot will blow up. We already are seeing terrorists’ activities the world over. Just how long will it be until terrorism is here in the U.S. as an everyday event? The shame of it all is we here in the U.S. had the answer in Bernie Sanders and let it slip away by some listening to the bought and paid for corporate media and Wall Street, who do nothing but rape and pillage the workers, retired people and our earth the world over. At this time we here in the U.S. are in limbo until our fraud of an election is over, but after that the people must make some decisions on how to reclaim our country, their lives and how we are to survive. We, the people of the world, still need wage equality, healthcare, free education, pensions, a safe healthy planet, an end to these wars, and elections free from corruption so we can elect candidates who will fight for us and not the big banks, Wall Street and the oligarchies. “There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest,” Elie Wiesel, Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor.
