Retro~America~life at the five and dime~

Image

Far and away, unemployment and simply bad employment is the number one concern to be addressed in this country today. We make little distinction between absolute joblessness and the more widespread condition of having a highly educated young demographic working for the foreseeable in dime stores. America cannot survive with such a bleak employment picture.~~

~~

It is a national imperative to bring jobs back to America and to keep them here. It is similarly an imperative to have all American flagged companies employ American workers and that every stitch of retail product is made in America by American citizens.~~

~~

There is certainly nothing wrong~or immoral~about working in a five and dime~but~I gotta ask~can an advanced economy survive when most of her people can’t hope for more than nickels and dimes?

Image

~~

Rather than turning all elements of the debate over how to create and encourage finding good jobs for good American workers into a tiresome political re-hash of old concepts of social structure, let’s take the best elements of seemingly conflicting attitudes and get to the business of solving the problem. Yet, of course for the reader who has had his mind formed in the previous century, words do have meanings.~~

~~~

Can apparently conflicting concepts come together to solve the problem of wretched poverty and unemployment in America?~~

~~

We say, yes indeedy, Sir!~~

~~

Consider first socialism—a word with a most nasty reputation. America has, indisputably, been a socialist nation for eighty years and few, if any, would move away from the main elements of that structure. Yet socialism is an extremely hot, political, and, somewhat less so, commercial hot potato. No conventional politician admits to being a socialist when in fact, they all are—and we all are. However, the reality is that socialism, while it plays a role in advanced society, must take a secondary chair to commercial interest. After all, it is business that hires people and puts them in real jobs. Likewise, business produces necessary goods and services needed by the nation. Socialism run amok destroys commerce and that is not in the best interest of the nation. If this solution is given a proper chance to work, commercial enterprises must take proper care of the workers—providing good pay, good benefits and, of great importance, good retirement programs of the sort that were prevalent in the very recent past—by law. Such good pay and benefit laws will serve to calm the social anxiety so prevalent today and make for a happier, more secure and productive work force.~~

Consider second, free market capitalism as a political construct. There, the vogue obsession is with balancing budgets and eliminating deficits. While I understand that young Mr. Ryan, a chief proponent of such austerity measures, likely thinks he is doing God’s work, I must caution him and others who stand with him that, in real life, these concerns are abstractions of academic economics best left in classrooms.  Again, we ask of young Ryan and others—what, tangibly, have these things that you propose to do with getting Americans good jobs—right now? Again, the obsession ought properly to be with nurturing commerce–directly. In the anticipated system, the employer will provide a good wage, sterling health care and good, old-fashioned, retirement benefits. The massive new tax base of well paid workers thus created will quickly eliminate deficits and balance all federal, state and local budgets.~~

~~

Mr. Ryan and friends are admonished that deficit spending of itself is not a mortal sin. What sin there is in it comes when deficits are rung up for the wrong reasons.~~

~~

The issue as to ringing up deficits is not if they lead to an artificial economic construct but rather if they are beneficial expenditures.~~

~~

Both sides must put aside their intense enmity for one another to get this absolutely imperative program moving. Right away. This is an idea that cannot have any, legitimate, rhetorical enemies.~~

~~

It is not complex to accomplish this end. It requires simply the will to get the massive and spreading cancer of unemployment and low-level employment cured and cured quickly. This aggressive cancer, this wasting of good people who cannot participate properly in the work world no matter how hard they try, must be addressed as such—a hostile enemy of America.~~

~~

We propose the latter-day, moral equivalent of a day, plus one, past Pearl Harbor, to immediately put into place an equally aggressive attack on this unemployment cancer by adopting a massive hiring of workers to good jobs under the auspices of this most necessary industrial program.~~

~~

Our liberal democracy must now agree to put aside a key element of its DNA. It must take draconian action on a monumentally serious issue. The alternative is certain, swift and savage revolution that very few in America will like but, by the time it comes, it will be too late to alter course.~~

I have written an article spelling out precisely how best to eradicate all unemployment and poverty in America quickly.  I ask that readers see the initial article

As getting the word out across America on a monumental and time pressing enterprise such as mine is very expensive, I ask those who have been energized by my words to help defray the costs of my activities as best they can and follow this link to a secure site to make a contribution.  Thank you very much.

Impression, soleil levant

~

Avec

~

M. Claude Monet

~

The painting~~of Le Harve~~and the painter~~

~~

M. Monet~~who, most unintendedly, and satirically, gave birth to the art now known to us all as Impressionist French~~the most amazing paintings~~

~

Ever…

~

We ask~~who can say with certitude just~~

~~

Why things happen as they do ?~~

~~

Man today~~

~~

Very certain of himself~~will tell you~~

~~

“I know why things happen”~~

~~

Do you now?~~

~~

Oh?~~

~~

Well, then~~Let’s consider, you and I, the advent of the Impressionist French we all hold so dear~~

~~

Impressionist French art takes its sweet name from a savage, biting, satire~~

~~

And not~~

~~

From~~any sort of pretty picture~~

~~

Consider, dears~~

~~

Claude Monet’s Impression, Sunrise (Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris) exhibited in 1874, gave the Impressionist movement its name when the critic Louis Leroy accused it of being a sketch or “impression,” not a finished painting. and M. Leroy savagely lampooned the work~~as did all the Academy critics of his day~~

~~

How embarrassed those critics must be today, in blue heaven~~

~~

Put to the quick, children~~M. Levy and his Academy friends were not “impressed” with the men who became the Impressionists French~~

~~

Now say, do, what is your impression of all that?

The Procession of the Trojan Horse into Troy

about 1760, Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo

~~~~~~~

On the subject of impressions~~both handed down, revisited after the fact and in the present tense~~
~~
Not to mention~~
~~
 Writing the future in advance~~
~~
Specifically~~
~~
Just what is your impression and how did you come to have it~~
~~
Of~~
~~
Barack Hussein Obama II~~Communist Trojan horse~~
 
~~
 
The greatest thing that ever happened to the American right-wing~~
 
~~
 
The impressionist painting of the President as a communist has been coldly calculated, opulently well-funded, disciplined, multi-faceted and, as we shall shortly see, both this year and in 2016~~
~~
Remarkably successful~~
 
~~
 
I remember a family friend, an older man and a high operative of the Democratic Party, telling me in summer 2008~~
 
~~
 
“Young Beggs~~if you~~yourself ~~were in the belly of a Trojan horse and were wheeled into my Party headquarters~~
~~
You could not possibly have done as much damage to the Democrats than this boy will now do to us.~~
~~
When this is over, all that will be left of the Democratic Party will be driftwood of the coast of Ireland”~~
 
~~
 
I have watched, now and then, over 5 years time, with keen interest at just how~~
 
~~
 
Prescient~~
~~
Those words were~~
~~
Yes~~that’s it~~
~~
Prescient~~
~~
 
 
I have never heard the incumbent speak~~
~~
I wouldn’t know the cadence of his voice~~were I to hear it~~
~~
I have never read a word he has written~~
~~
I would not know him if I fell over him in the street~~
~~
Most unlike many of my fellow citizens, I’ve no way to knowledgeably gauge~~
~~
Just who the incumbent is~~
~~
 I lay no claim to know his heart’s desires~~
~~
I hear it said that he is evil and a communist and, he may be so~~
~~
I don’t know~~
~~
But then, nobody knows anybody~~
~~
At least not very well~~
~~
How many who have been married on now 50 year can truly say they know anything about their spouse~~
~~
I cannot~~
~~
 
But I do know the American right-wing~~
~~
Very, very well~~
~~
And I can say this with full alacrity~~
~~
The twin sister~~
~~
And heir apparent~~

Impressionist Fascisti~~
