Now that he has seduced the rednecks with this lovely performance from his campaign, we are being told that the Rockettes have been told that they are not permitted to refuse to perform for the presidential inauguration. Take a look at the Rockettes for comparative purposes:
This is a clear upgrade on the same theme, Trump is simply announcing a move to the big league of desperately old fashioned American entertainment.
In addition, Putin and Trump have evidently agreed to renew their arms race with a view to telling he rest of the world what to do, presumably involving killing a lot more people.
Expect increased radicalisation, more terror attacks and further moves to divide and conquer at the expense of hippy dipshit Europe in the developing nations. There are cost-effective ways of countering this impending doom scenario, but will anybody in the Conservative government have the time or inclination to notice? This after all gives permission to up national security and buy more weapons with money which is needed to stop sectors of the British population from starving to death.
So, as usual you are being told the opposite of the truth. Buying more weapons is supposed to be the answer to world peace, spending more money will help people by killing them, and America persists in thinking they are policing the rest of the world.
Likewise we have now been told that starving the unemployed does not work No evidence that welfare sanctions work and that they cannot find a way of preserving the income of the one million millionaires, so they cannot figure out how to Brexit. Brexit is essential for your future safety, never mind actually earning a living. The misery of domestic political lies started a very long time before the crash of 2008. As far back as 2002 we were told not to admit to the lack of jobs, because middle class people don’t talk about struggling.
Fuck that, frankly, we have been mismanaged by self-interest for some time. At some point during the Thatcher government, the brakes were taken off the banks in the form of them no longer having to ensure that virtual money represented real money. We have ridden a false wave of spurious growth ever since.
This has not been helped by the fashion in recent decades for employing people who will say yes to anything to pay their mortgage. In real terms the economy of the UK as well as America benefited hugely from a culture of honesty and innovation, which is why Trump is so fond of using this terribly old-fashioned imagery. He has no intention of backing that up, but this is why it is appealing. Those of us who remember the popular post-war culture of honesty, bravery and growth feel some fondness for the spirit of patriotism in the form of working together towards a common goal.
The reason for the encouragement of dishonest behaviour for money, lack of empathy for others, labelling people who do not share our views, and fear of admitting that actually borders are a good thing is corporate expediency, which is what both Clinton and Trump represent in real terms, but on a different basis. Trump is all out for himself and his fellow billionaire, with the same trickle down lies that goes with that that Clinton would support in the form of open globalisation. It is all at your expense. At no point does anybody want to help you, unless it involves you giving them yet more money.
And so the cycle continues, and as long as you use the same shops, vote the same way, respond emotionally with helplessness and play facile games on facebook instead of actually taking action, the cycle will continue until one day you will find yourself walking past a starved corpse on the street and not caring. At all.
Think about that whilst you eat your Christmas dinner.
