What Do The Rich Know?

The billionaires of Silicon Valley and government people are scared and building bunkers and islands in anticipation of society’s collapse. The danger of government people and the very rich having these new 500,000 to 1.5 million bunkers is that they now think they will be safe if and when the big boom drops or the 99 percent comes after them with pitch forks. They may think nuclear war or severe climate change will not effect them and that in the event either of these should occur, they will be better off than the rest of us. These are not just a couple of fringe groups. There is real money behind this movement, hundreds of millions of dollars. These are the richest and smartest people who are probably in the “know” so what do they know that we, poor people, don’t know? Then there are all the so-called rich preppers are buying islands and land in New Zealand. If all government and the 1 percent rich are safe, then do you think they fear earth’s ruin by climate change or a nuclear war with North Korea or Russia, and would these people want to push the button first? There is, at this time, rich people refurbishing 575 munition storage bunkers in South Dakota, a 700-acres $330 million mostly subterranean developments, called Trident Lakes in Ector, Texas, equipped with DefCon 1 preparedness. It will have amenities, like a hotel, an athletic center, a golf course, and a polo fields with 600 condomeniums. People do not spend this kind of money unless there is some type of worry. The 99 percent must keep vigilant or start digging their own holes. What would start this kind of panic? Perhaps taking people’s healthcare, busting all the unions, taking away Social Security, using technology to eliminate jobs, striping pensions away from people, striping people’s voting rights, eliminating the minimum wage, forcing women back into a subservient roles, taking women’s choice away from them, and threatening a country that is in possession of a bomb. If is just the poor with pitchforks, they will have retired Navy S.E.A.L.s or Special Forces just shoot us, which, ironically, we, as taxpayers, paid for their military training. A lot of former military personnel have gone to work for the likes of BlackWater, which became Xe, which became Academi, and were established as a private military company originially founded in 1997 by former Navy S.E.A.L. officer Erik Prince. This is just one of many private military companies. If a bomb drops, these oligarches think they will just ride the consequences out in Trident Lakes and again shoot us if we try to get in. They’ve already said this by hiring their their own army. But what if their army turns against them. I wonder if these people have even thought this possibility since the hired army is already among them with evrything they need so why keep feeding and protecting the spoiled rich? History has shown the private armies work for the most advantagous for the hired hands. Should we all be preparing for the apocalypse?

Post Workists and What it Means

To change the abundance of labor in the world is to put more money in the pockets of the laborer to buy the products their fellow workers are making. Otherwise, when there are more products than money, there is slump in the economy. Austerity policies, low wages and automation (robots) were also of concern in the 1950s when Henry Ford II, CEO of Ford, took Walter Reuther, head of the United Auto Workers Union, on a tour of a new engine plant. Ford gestured to a fleet of new machines and said, “Walter, how are you going to get these robots to pay union dues?” The union leader turned to Ford and said, “Henry, how are you going to get robots to buy your cars?” This type of change in the labor has created a new type of working class that swings from task to task in order to make ends meet while enduring the loss of labor rights and bargaining rights. They are called “precariat” workers, a group of workers who live on the verge of collapse due to the instability of the nature of their job…

GOP To Pick-off Remainder of Unions

The last bastion of organize labor is now on the west and east coasts, like New York City, Seattle, and Los Angeles. Labor has mostly given up on the south and the middle of the U.S., is that because unions aren’t up to the fight? We have lost Detroit, Michigan and Wisconsin, which was the start of public unions. These GOP government control states, like govenors Synder and Pence have kicked our union butts. In California, labor has lost all of the rural counties, Orange and San Diego counties; and now San Francisco, Sacramento and Los Angeles counties are our last strong holds. It would not take a lot to lose California. California has elected GOP governors before and with our new federal government now in place and with the Koch brothers, et al, and their money it could be done again. We, union workers, could lose it all. They have started on teachers’ union and they are still trying to break the postal workers union by forcing the pension funds to be funded 75 years ahead of pa…

Gig Economy

The Gig con, which sells people on a more flexible job without fixed hours. This sounds enticing to workers fed up with their 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. jobs. Also, to people without jobs, and to people who have part-time jobs, and need more money. Gig jobs fill in many needs, but the rub is that these jobs or most of these jobs don’t pay into Social Security or Social Disability Insurance so when someone hits retirement age there is nothing to fall back on. Most have been told that Social Security will not have money for them because Social Security will be broke. This is a lie and a con job on the workers. Social Security will be OK if the federal government will keep its hands off the money we paid into it. They think it is their piggy bank. Then what if you get sick or injured on the Gig job, there is no healthcare. We know that we are running out of jobs here and worldwide. This is why we need the universal basic income and unions for all. At this time, the federal government estimates…
