Corporate Assault &
For many years Many people have been under attack by
the outrageous behavior of Corporate America! We find ourselves being
offers skewed to attract and compel. Inviting, convincing
to engulf us in an endless maze of debt! Now! Some would
say no one
twisted our arm, that we knew what we were doing. Oh yes! But
we completely understand what we were opening ourselves up to?
did not! Many of us might have made far different choices
had we known
what was up the conniving sleazy world of much of
look at the
Bill for starters, they designed it!
Deceased, Senator Paul
The fleecing of America!
Ah! But Corporate Americas Capitalism/Commercialism is
entrap and trap and trap until it gets a hold of you like a
vise. It has been
all too easy these last demanding and unreasonable
years to tempt those
who have worked hard, have little money, less time,
problems and like any mortal, have a need to be
validated in some
small way before
they die! But instead
we find ourselves sinking in
quick sand where our leaders have led us, due to their lack
of vigilance, or their complicity!
Since the Reagan/Bush years, it has been an
"Impossible Dream" "The
American Dream", unless you
were a corrupt and selfish individual! I am
not feeling sorry for myself
and do not want nor have I ever embraced pity.
My family and I have paid
our dues over and over and for many years I
have been so close to losing it! That is
one of the reasons why I am
speaking out for all those other souls that
dare not speak out
for themselves for one reason or another. Decent,
Americans, who have sacrificed themselves into a corner and
they just do not want nor can they take it any longer!
How many of you out there have had one problem after
another with merchandise you have purchased and been hooked for
warrantee cost for TV's, Washing Machines, Hot water heaters,
sports/out-side gear, Computers, software, printers, scanners.
about telephones and service, Utility companies, electric,
Propane for one, which was attempting to and
in many cases did, in
fact, rip off many Americans?
We know; we were one of those who held "Level
accountable to their fraudulent behavior and it cost us,
even though the Attorney General's in many States levied
a fine of $750,000.00 on "Level
How many of you have bought food that was not what the
for example: twelve frozen biscuits, were there were only
ten, etc. etc. Have
you purchased more often then not these years, tough
beef, even though
you thought you were purchasing the tender NY, etc?
How many of you have been faced with an immediate
problem and the company you have called to hold accountable
a serious error, conveniently, is not available, and even
though they say
they will get back to you; They Don't!
they haven't forgot your name and address
when the bill comes due )
I could go on and on from where I have been perched
these last many years!
I have contained my anger and not acted on my
impulses; Which is to tear
the throat out of many of these faceless
wonders who have eagerly taken
my hard earned money, and replaced it
with that, which only an arrogant, pernicious, corrupt, faceless wonder
would dare offer any American
who is not brain dead! Dear God the
overwhelming exasperation as the
years wear and tear at our essence,
which was once hopeful, and full
of promise! The compelling need to find
out, "Whatever happened
to America and her sense of Justice and
I know that I need not go any further with my personal
they are too numerous to name here! If any of you have
one tenth of what my family, friends and I have experienced,
paid unreasonable dues. You have been frustrated beyond reason!
And clearly, you understand what I am talking about!
George Bush wants to bring justice to other parts of
Just what kind of justice is Bush the lesser speaking of? Is
it the kind
that sells you items that are not worth what you paid for
corporate America has devised an ingenious plan which
to ensure that they will work (extended warrantees)! Have
you had the
horror of lost time waiting for a new washing machine, or
other item to be serviced, and serviced, and serviced? We have!
do not forget, they do they take forever,
when the warrantees come due,
have you noticed?
Is Bush the lesser speaking of the kind of justice
that his father and Reagan
years dealt us with their voodoo economics?
Like! No Health Care?
Or, "Health Care" costs, thanks to the
which are prohibitive; Inadequate and deadly
for many, who have
some sort of coverage? Job cutbacks?
national (it doubled) debt?
S&L scandal, Iran Contra, Persian Gulf Syndrome (depleted
El Salvador, Nicaragua, Saddam, the butcher of Baghdad! Now! Enron,
WorldCom, Halliburton, etc.? There are far more terrible things that
Whitehouse and His fathers' have performed, they and their
cronies have effectively usurped the rights of working class
Americans in order to pursue their greedy goals.
Then there were the unscrupulous attacks on the Clinton’s for much
their eight years of service to the people! I did not vote for
President Clinton until the second term, Thanks to the
of the U.S.!
I remember the Jesse Carpenter story, do you? Jesse
was a Nam war
hero who froze to death in Washington DC, Christmas, 1984,
on the steps of the White House. This was shortly after
like Attorney General Meese and some others had the
audacity to say,
"No one went hungry or was in want in America.
" Maybe not from where they perched!
Corporate America and their raiders are so arrogant in their takeover
American values as well as the rights guaranteed by the
that they have become shameless and are
an embarrassment to any proud
There are many alarms being sounded, warning of
terrorism and diseases,
like West Nile and SARS. Have you heard of or do

Just what will hospitals do if we need to go and or take our loved ones
to them, especially if these diseases get out of control and are visited
upon us, or someone we love? What can we expect if one of these
hospitals do tend to us? I'll tell you what you can expect, I have
the decline of emergency room service for the uninsured,
you are nothing
more then food for the jackals. And I am here
to tell you, no thanks to

experience, even when you do have
What about the money to bury a loved one. Do any of
our leaders ever
think of this when they fight for the crumbs we get? We
can't afford to
stay healthy, how in God’s name can we afford to bury
or be buried.
What kind of justice is this that this "White House and
Washington metes out"?
Is this what we offer the Iraqi's and the world at large? We have
already killed off many Iraqi loved ones with our inhumane sanctions,
Depleted Uranium and now a pernicious war! But then again, many
Americans have been suffering under a type of Government imposed
sanction ourselves. We work for peanuts! No Health
Unsafe work environments! Double standards. Our Veterans
serve at the behest of an insensitive spoiled individual,
who fancies himself as a leader. My mother would
say, "Leaders Command, Dictators Demand"!
And the beat goes on!
No voice in Washington! Not even a viable whimper since
lost his life, albeit Senator Byrd has certainly
tried! I have been watching and listening closely and while a
voices have been raised for the people,
it may be too little, too
"We the People" have lost the right of redress! What price
continue to pay for Bush’s kind of freedom? Bush the lesser!
Well his idea of freedom is an abomination!
He attempts to instill fear
in our hearts as he challenges
the faithful and all those patriots of
these United States of "AMERICA"!
