Bad Moon Rising Part 1 - Race To The Bottom


It may not be long until the the GROWING global RACE TO THE BOTTOM fuleled by increasing SLAVE LABOR with it’s SUPRESSED WORKER RIGHTS led by U.S. businesses’ UNCHECKED corporate GREED and the POLITICIANS IN THEIR POCKETS who together are HOLLOWING OUT DEMOCRACY AND THE MIDDLE CLASS at breakneck speed, and/or China’s undenyable status as a world power - results in SOMETHING not unlike the GREAT DEPRESSION - or WORSE.

Does it sometimes look like the US - led by CORRUPT corporate and political interests - wants to take over the WORLD, with the equivalent of an insecure BOY leading our GOVERNMENT and country?

Do you know a former middle-class, middle-aged person who lost his/her career the past few years and REMAINS unemployed or underemployed today?

YOU WON’T FIND those folks VISITING DOCTORS, taking vacations, BUYING CHRISTMAS GIFTS, toys for their kids, new cars, HOUSES, clothes, cameras, etc - or anything else that fuels the GNP.  At some point it’ll be crystal clear we can’t afford to buy, or CHARGE THINGS anymore.  Then - thanks to the NEW BANKRUPTCY LAWS - we’ll all LOOSE EVERYTHING to what will become a FEUDALISTIC SOCIETY of serfs and lords - MOSTLY SERFS.  A total economic collapse from this isn’t unlikely. 

Have you noticed that America DOESN’T MANUFACTURE things anymore, except maybe HAMBURGERS?

I had to change something in my computer the other day.  Most - if not all the hardware - is stamped with symbols that look like Chinese to me. If SONY can HIDE ROOTKITS IN CDs, and SYMANTEC can HIDE ROOTKITS IN IT’S SOFTWARE - Communist regimes can do the same or worse in computer chips exported to their political adversaries. Doesn’t China MAKE MICROCHIPS for the GUIDANCE SYSTEMS in some of our ballistic missles?

Do you see how company after company can drive itself to bankruptcy, and by doing that, drop all it’s commitments to workers, WHILE EXECUTIVES TAKE whatever assets are left as GOING AWAY PRESENTS for themselves - all with the BLESSING of the US Government?

Did you notice that the big, giant pillar of American labor unions - the AFL-CIO - LOST a number of it’s members this summer from a conflict in POLICIES?  I think the rebel unions’ cause has merit, and hope they do well, but ALL I SEE NOW is the strength of organized labor diminished, and splintering BEGGING for real leadership and direction - not what we NEED.

Isn’t it TIME for a NEW SOLIDARITY movement?
Before the RED STAR rises.

I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin.
I see bad times today.

Dont go around tonight,
Well, its bound to take your life,
There’s a bad moon on the rise.

I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.

All right!

Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like were in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.
