Slow Cooked

With the seats of apathy at full capacity here in the stadium of pain, where dickheads of any persuasion in government or fear porn media, in nicely tailored suits who don’t wear the masks of shame they demand the insouciant wear, don’t practice the voodoo of social distancing, haven’t lost their jobs that their jack boot orders have heaped upon the innocents, you might consider to take the opportunity to step outside outside on your front porch of whatever crib you reside in,  at 8:00 pm and howl with delight that you’re f**ked and they’re not.

America’s Super Rich See Their Wealth Rise by $282 Billion in Three Weeks of Pandemic – via mintpressnews.com

 A new report from the Institute for Policy Studies found that, while tens of millions of Americans have lost their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic, America’s ultra-wealthy elite have seen their net worth surge by $282 billion in just 23 days. This is despite the fact that the economy is expected to contract by 40 percent this quarter. The report also noted that between  1980 and 2020 the tax obligations of America’s billionaires, measured as a percentage of their wealth, decreased by 79 percent. In the last 30 years, U.S. billionaire wealth soared by over 1100 percent while median household wealth increased by barely five percent. In 1990, the total wealth held by America’s billionaire class was $240 billion; today that number stands at $2.95 trillion. Thus, America’s billionaires accrued more wealth in just the past three weeks than they made in total prior to 1980. As a result, just three people ­– Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffet – own as much wealth as the bottom half of all U.S. households combined.

The spike in billionaire wealth comes amid an unprecedented economic crash; 26.5 million Americans have filed for unemployment over the last five weeks, and that number is expected to continue to rise dramatically. While the super-rich are holed up in their mansions and yachts, the 49-62 million Americans designated as “essential workers” must continue to risk their lives to keep society functioning, even as many of them do not even earn as much as the $600 weekly increase in unemployment benefits the CARES act stipulates. Many low paid workers, such as grocery store employees, have already fallen sick and died. The mother of one 27-year-old Maryland worker who contracted COVID-19 and died received her daughter’s last paycheck. It amounted to $20.64.

A nifty plandemic works wonders for these vaudeville acts, doesn’t it?

And as this plandemic worms its way through the intestines of the unwashed, there will come a time when the spine of the ‘adults’ in the room will be questioned by the generations after us who have allowed these absolute pieces of filth to lay to waste life, honesty, truth and love.

And when this whole f**king charade is done…when the gods meet us as we exit this insanity – they might ask, what did you do for your brethren…and sadly, we will reply…not a goddamn thing.

Folks…how long before we realize, deep into the night, as we lay our heads upon our pillows for a night’s rest. that we are supremely f**ked by the demons of the day.

Or don’t listen to any of this…and open your orifices to to be reamed up your arses by demons offerings:

And then, when you and your families and children have been laid to waste by activities  of the demons of the era, you might think, as you take your last breath…. WOW, how fucking dumb was that of we believed in… and sadly, either by a silent nod to the insanity of that of which we wouldn’t  protest against, or even more insidious, that which we silently allowed to happen to us and our loved ones, this shit-posting writer wonders if the gods, wherever we might might meet them – the only defense will be be able to offer is…Oops!

Tonight’s musical offering:

***

“On the page it looked…nothing. The beginning – simple, almost comic. Just a pulse – bassoons…basset horns – like a rusty squeezebox. And then, suddenly – high above it – an oboe, a single note, hanging there, unwavering, until a clarinet took it  over and sweetened it into a phrase of such delight! This was no composition by a performing monkey. This was a music I’d never heard. Filled with such longing, such unfulfillable longing. It seemed to me that I was hearing the voice of God.” – from the movie, “Amadeus”
