Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, June 16, 2019

How many of us are convinced that there is no alternative to capitalism? How many have ingested the neoliberal narcotic of lost imaginations? The fear of a better life is a product of media conditioning and is only escaped by sages and psychotics. New organizations feign impartiality while fulfilling the needs of elite capital. The National Endowment for Democracy,professes neutral and angelic intentions while actually savaging the reputation of progressive movements, domestically and internationally. Human Rights Watch's CEO takes to Twitter to rampage against Maduro for American power. The media supports imperialism internationally. Our system decimates our land, disfigures our psyches, deforms our bodies, and desiccates our dreams on behalf of a chiseling syndicate of elites. The elites that helm this system share new world order ideas over champagne and canapes in Switzerland at their annual Bilderberg summit and no one will vote on what they do.

Programs like Medicare for All, easily within reach of any nation that wants it is considered wildly idealistic and unworkable in the mainstream press, which has conditioned an essential slice of the voting population. Senator Bernie Sanders is being redefined as anti-American for the upcoming election. Biden is a faithful servant of capital who tried to clothe himself in the blue-collar swagger of the working man. Biden has been anointed as the chosen foot soldier to shepherd imperialism back into respectability. Mainstream America, indifferent to art, enthralled by money, ignorant of history, is the outgrowth of a three vile powers: the neoliberal party, the imperial state, and the capitalist media. Each of these entities has vested interests in advancing the cause of violent western hegemony. Our bourgeois are ethically and spiritually bankrupt. They can rationalize away any and all cruelties in the name of "democracy". Their latest international targets include Iran and Venezuela.

You can confiscate enough personal property to do almost whatever you want. Problem for liberals is, America wasnt designed that way. True freedom doesnt come from being provided all of life's necessities. It comes from individual effort. Taking care of yourself and having the opportunity to do so.

It's funny the article mentions Iran and Venezuela. Both countries with brutal dictators and severe limits on internet access to the outside world.

We're the richest country in the world, ever ... yet we STILL can't pay for everyone's healthcare?

And the argument from people like you is you don't want to pay for someone else's healthcare ... but people like you don't understand that you are ALREADY paying for someone else's healthcare.

I've explained this to you and the rest of the dummies a zillion times -- your sense of "freedom" is twisted and perverted.

Welcome to the United States of Dysfunction

It was, but it was people who were confiscated, and made into slaves.

Welcome back Pinch.

Anyhoo,

I do understand what you are saying. And quite frankly, you know I've been advocating for healthcare for all. It's just liberals dont want to do it the way I say do it. The way I want to do it makes everyone feel the pain. Period. But liberals want to coddle their voting block. Not let them feel how much it costs to take are of people.

"America wasn't designed that way."

Can't really argue with that. After all it was designed so that so-called land owners could exploit unadulterated soils and many other undeveloped natural resources using slaves and women to live the life of Riley. It was amazing.

Natives were given no land ownership rights even though they were here first. Their system of enhanced wildtending was eradicated. Instead each time another natural resource was discovered on land natives were displaced to they were displaced again or just killed so that invaders could enjoy the fruits of labor of slaves and indentured servants.

You seem to forget that this entire nation is stolen property, which has and always will be the basis of its wealth. Then you can add in the genocide and mass murder that allowed for this, as well as abetting the theft of resources from central and south America - along with africa and the middle east, as well as a significant portion of asia. The US government is the brutal dictator.

Your supposed value does not exist, unless you actually make something of intrinsic value. Punching a keyboard, ,white collar work in general, lawyers, the vast majority of research work, including medical research, their value is created by someone else, long before most of your jobs and professions ever existed. Its funny to hear someone disparage so called unskilled or "low" skilled people. Without them you would have NOTHING to start from. You people get degrees because you swallowed the lie, you HAD to get them as you had no skill to begin with. Not even a thinking mind, you had to "learn" that as well.

If you want MEDICAL care for all, the choice is simple - get rid of the corporations that have hijacked medical care for profit.
$.45 cents of all money into the fraudulent "healthcare" system is used to prop up corporations that provide NO value to the people other than holding their medical care hostage for profit. At this point you'll also have to deal with the doctors, as they have enjoyed an extreme acceleration of their wages, wholly influenced by the corporate profiteering.

Corruption and elitism start in this fashion, and that is what you have. Just look at the world around you. It will not get better, it can only get worse because it has been designed that way. Every tick of the clock destroys someone else's life, for no other reason than greed, and you are fast approaching the day when no-one will have value in the eyes of the criminals whom would destroy all of it to keep you from having any of it.

Bravo. Well done.

Too bad it was wasted on this audience.

Who defends the Obamacare insurance scam as "progress".
