Precision, what morality is, really, that's the issue. Not the fable kind or magic kind or pompous, polemic, or promised kind, but real morality.
Morality means evolving governance over our vanity, and increasing our awareness of other's suffering. You know, human values. Understanding and forebearing so we can work and live together in peace. Prosper.
Willard "Mitt" Romney is a bully. His morality is relative, flexible, self-defining, every moment. He was given too much. It ruined him.
The school days assaults never stopped, really. They became commercial pillaging, worker screwing. All because the Bain Capitalists were swaggering rich fucks who made everyone they encountered their fag blonde bitch. Now this temporary right-fielder Mitt wants to veto regulations and run the Supreme Court line-up. Religious schools will be mandatory, and gay made illegal again –– and they are a generation or two away from just such a grand slam if Bishop Romney becomes President Pope. Pope-voters, that's what we have going on here. Every family wealthy, every man a Cardinal. Romney, the infallible Mormon pontificator...well, maybe not, but he'll have a hell of a security force to back up his proclamations, so who cares if he's fallible?
American conservatives, wake up. This isn't the rich guy who wants you to be rich, too. He's one of the chief assholes who absconded with your sacred relics over the last eighteen years: opportunity, fair play, a square deal, an honest game, the dignity of work––and replaced them with something about maybe a discount plasma screen someday and shut the fuck up, fag. He and his ilk rigged the game so money could be redistributed to the short list, so unions had no unity and overseas workers could be pittanced, the rest of the profit pocketed. Ca-ching! but the sound gets fainter every day for the rest of us.
And he means you, Joe the plumber and John and Jane TiPartay. Not us liberals. He tsks at us because we spoil the narrative, but that's ok, when he takes office it will be surveillance and new Guantanamos, tasers and sprays, cordoned demonstration areas and no-account detentions all over again.
It's all for you, all his pretence and shit-cicle lies, conservative America. If he can fool enough of you into thinking rubes are welcome, too, then he'll get Air Force One and the right to make shipping concessions with Putin that close the Panama Canal. All the world's frieght, across the newly unfrozen Siberian coast. The shorter route. The giant Russian ships are already kingdoms on the sea, without worker safety or union protection. The Bainists give away our industrial might, and our merchant marine. They give away whole industries. Watch that happens, when Willy boy gets here.
Let's not be held down and fleeced of our liberty and pursuit of happiness by Kettlejaw McDumbney and his golfing buddies, shall we?
Congressional Subcommittees, subpoena power, this way please, front and center. Let's start with the mortgage merry-go-round, to slow their flow of cash. Let's tax overseas holdings, personal and corporate, hell, just because, and we'll make it cheaper to keep the jobs and expertise here. Want to keep the wealth you accumulate using our financial system, infrastructure, raw materials, and good will? Then pay an inheritance tax to any public works or defense or tech dev entity of your choice. But pay you must. Vast rapid weath should only permit you a large measure of comfort and opportunity, the rest should be recycled, and all you get is the sacred privilege of shaping positive growth by choosing from hundreds of orgs, individuals, schools, technologies, commodities, or creative arts that improve, replenish and uplift us. It must stop being the pile that never shrinks, for a few greedy assholes, the pyramid of gold on the bleak, hot horizon. Let's vote in some transaction fees. Let's send accountants to the Caymans and Switzerland, with a Marine escort if necessary, and use the loot we find to staff and fund oversight with teeth.
Then let's see some bloody teeth.
