Yes…You Can Change the Course

Getting into your sixties, upon waking, you slowly – every so slowly – manage to gather enough strength to collect the incoherent ramblings in your foggy mind into one, succinct thought – that being, how in the hell do I get up from bed?

Now, imagine you’re a psychopath – it’s easy to do – for there are thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of psychopaths in front of us daily, via television, governments and on the world wide waste. Their daily waste of a thought upon waking is how to screw everyone.

They might look “normal”, in other words, they have legs, feet, hands, fingers, arms, torso and, for the most part, have particularly unattractive noggins attached to their torso. But beyond that, they are not normal, and maybe even not human.

Consider this grade A, fermented a-hole, Jeff Bezos, and how he chooses to run his company, keeping in mind that this soulless wretch has an estimated worth of $153 Billion:

‘We Are Treated Like Animals,’ Say Amazon Flex Drivers – by Hamilton Nolan – via splinternews.com

Both white collar and blue collar workers for Amazon have complained of a variety of inhuman working conditions, even they have it better than the absolute lowest rung on the Amazon employment chart: “Flex” drivers, who lack job security, benefits, and decent pay—and who say they are desperate for change.

Amazon Flex is, in essence, the company’s in-house Uber-esque package delivery program. You can claim delivery shifts (called “blocks”) via an app, then drive your own car to an Amazon warehouse, pick up packages, and deliver them and be paid directly. Of course, this means that Flex drivers are not Amazon employees, earn no benefits, pay for their own car maintenance and gas, and generally have no rights or influence over their own working conditions. The Flex program has been the subject of a number of exposes by journalists describing the plight of drivers, who often find that their take-home pay plummets to single-digit dollars per hour once they have factored in all of their expenses. And although Amazon has made much of the fact that the company raised its minimum wage to $15 an hour last year, Flex drivers were not included in those raises. In February, the LA Times reported that Amazon was systematically stealing Flex drivers’ tips.

But how could this be, in the richest country in the world, where government shysters and their lying statistics tell the apathetic masses that jobs are plentiful, wages are good, and anyone who wants to work 2, 3, 4, jobs to make ends meet – well, it’s low-hanging fruit available to all the unwashed as these psychopath’s screw us all, reaping billions off our suffering from their offerings of disdain of us all.

But all is simply fantastic here in the land of the free and the home of the apathetic.  If you don’t believe that then you’re not listening close enough to the guy with orange hair, tweeting BS, with compliant hyena’s in the media adding to the pile of vomit.

And if you’re not listening to the guy with the orange hair, then we have the corporate media with their continued Russiagate insanity so that the attention of the unwashed can be diverted to all that is horseshit, while so many of us find ourselves deep in suffering.

As the West continues to gobble up the insanity of these demons, one can throw their arms up in the air and think…there’s nothing we can do.

Bullshit!

Unite with your co-workers, your friends, your like-minded individuals who are NOT in rapture with the latest stupidity coming through their hand-held radiation devices, and say ‘no more’ – no more of their f**kery – quite like what these ‘ordinary citizens’ have recently accomplished:

Grocery Store Workers Take on a Multinational:  via globalresearch.ca

At precisely 1:00 Eastern time on the afternoon of April 11th, 31,000 workers at 253 Stop and Shop grocery stores throughout Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts walked off their jobs. The strike came after several months of failed negotiations in which Stop and Shop refused to retract an onerous set of demands for the elimination of premium pay for Sunday work, major cuts to pensions and dramatic increases in the amount workers would have to pay for healthcare.

What happened as a result of the unwashed coming together and saying, ‘no more’?

Stop & Shop workers in the United Food and Commercial Workers union will get to go back to work after over a week of striking that followed the breakdown of negotiations with management over pay, health insurance, and benefits. The workers now have a tentative three-year agreement with management that satisfies their demands, according to the Associated Press.

“Today is a powerful victory for the 31,000 hardworking men and women of Stop & Shop who courageously stood up to fight for what all New Englanders want,” the union said in a statement.

“Under this proposed contract, our members will be able to focus on continuing to help customers in our communities enjoy the best shopping experience possible and to keep Stop & Shop the number one grocery store in New England,” the union said. “The agreement preserves health care and retirement benefits, provides wage increases, and maintains time-and-a-half pay on Sunday for current members.” – via splinternews.com
