Answerable To The Global Banking Cartel

As much as the Jamie Hyneman cat posting amused me, this image did a 1/x inversion of humor.  First, because the caption on it is so true.  Secondly, because for the first time in my life, there's actually someone I voted for - and had respect for - in the picture along with the rest of the hegemony composed of plutocrats and oligarchs.  With the Republicans, you KNOW you're gonna get a snug, slick, rich asshole who looks out for other rich assholes, and who gets a majority of Americans to elect him to vote against their own self interst in the pipe dream that they'll win the lottery one day and be a millionaire too!  This looking out for the rich and duping the dumb electorate is not just a plank in their platform, it's the granite foundation on which their party is built.   With the Democrats (as my friend Joe M says, the party where "ideas go to die") you have the hope that they'll look out for the middle class and the little guys, the under dogs... but they just tend to hide it a little better, and squander their weak grip on power more in a more rudderless fashion.  And since "Citizens United v. FEC", there's no shortage of corporate patronage to keep the rich in power longer, concentrate more wealth in the hands of a few, and increase the growing economic disparity in what was once the great nation of the United States of America.
