My Recent Spate of Revolutionary Writings


I realize I’ve been leaning towards a touch of the revolutionary recently, and I’d like to explain why… This clip should sum things up nicely.

I’m mad as hell.

We’ve been promised again and again, that things will change. The only changes I see around me, have been for the worse. The disparity between the rich and everyone else has increased, the poor have become poorer, our leaders have become more self-centered and bureaucratic, the recession has worsened for all but those who caused it to begin with, and on and on and on.

I’m reduced to a number thank you FICO and my banks, I’m merely a consumer fit only to buy and work and die, the important things (IE OUR ENTIRE EXISTENCE AS A HUMAN SPECIES AND THE WELL BEING OF OUR EARTH!!!) are ignored, our oceans are polluted, our resources misused, and those elected to defend our interests, to hold accountable organizations, businesses, and each other, have failed.

Miserably failed.

So yes, I’m advocating a revolution. Screw restoring value or sanity. Both are code words for status quo, except one is blue and one is red. The only tea party I want is one that leads to independence, the only change I want is real change, the only hope I want is the hope that we can make things better.

Let’s face it, America isn’t a republic anymore. It’s a joke. The real power is in the bureaucracy, the real force is within the special interests. Your vote doesn’t matter in the least bit. We don’t need another charismatic politician, we need real leaders, with the integrity and strength to do what’s right.

Insulation


Yesterday evening I saw the presidential motorcade pass, and my first thought was: how distant.

Our elected officials are as far from their constituencies as I am from the moon. When I write to my representatives, I don’t get anything more than a canned letter, with a fake signature, three months later.

The election is coming up shortly, and we’re most likely going to elect a new batch of the SAME EXACT PEOPLE.

Last year we elected a president around ideas of “hope” and “change.” Now we’re just hoping for change, our officials and representatives are different on the outside, and promise the world to voters: only to get into office and do whatever they were going to anyways.

 

Why do we continue to allow this to occur?

Quick Fix


President Obama was touted as the Capitalist-in-chief for the United States in an article on BusinessWeek (here). Specifically he’s been pushing money into the clean tech sector.

This is a quick fix to a serious problem.

Our current system, was built on ideas and assumptions from the 1940s and 50s. Back when smoking was healthy and gasoline wasn’t polluting. But since that time, we’ve learned that pollution is a serious issue and smoking causes cancer.

Electric and hydrogen powered vehicles are nothing more than ways to prop up old world ideas.

Look at our stimulus package: $300 Billion to the establishment. It didn’t actually stimulate the economy, nor did it trickle down to Main Street.

Look at health care reform: No one answered the question “Why have health care costs sky rocketed?”

The question with clean tech must be “Why are we trying to preserve a dying, antiquated way of doing things?”

We like to fix things, we aren’t good at solving problems.
