SURE IT MATTERS: DUMP DUMPY DUMP!

 

Well, if it hasn’t become obvious to you by now that Orange Tweet will throw ANYONE overboard and under the bus as long as it is not him, then you haven’t been paying attention.

That includes what is known as The United States of America as well.

Orange Tweet has no shame and ONLY cares about HIMSELF!

And the DEPLORABLES that lovingly get worked up by him time and time again seem to just love the redundant soliloquies he supplies.

Primarily because most of them have an attention span of less than four seconds which is just short of the time to tie their shoes.

But really, you know this.

What is wayyyyyyyyyyy more worrisome is the general American public that still believes that the Democraps, with the exception of Bernie Sanders, provide any direction other than same ol’, same ol’!

In fact, according to The New York Times, the Democrapian establishment is considering a possible shift away from Biden to  John Kerry or even Bitch Hillary!

OH, SAY IT ISN’T SO!

But it shows that the Democrap Establishment is no different from the Republicant’s and both are ONLY centered on their own net worth rather than any care for the “regular citizens” of the U.S.

And those “regular citizens” do have the ability to tie their shoes BUT not to see the lie that they are living thinking they have a choice. We DON’T have a democracy! Will you get that clear.

Your 8th grade civics teacher unknowingly LIED to you. Only because that teacher was lied to as well and so on.

 

Oh sure Trump is an idiot in the open while Biden, Obummer, and Killery are hidden idiots. All that they are doing is business for themselves and their families and we the citizen pay for it.

Trust Tubularsock on this. NONE OF THESE ASSHOLES CARE A HOOT ABOUT YOU!

NO MATTER HOW STUPIDLY OR ELOQUENTLY THEY TELL YOU.

AND YOU ARE THE SUCKER IF YOU BELIEVE THEM.

It is pretty simple and it is out there in plain sight.

Tulsi Gabbard ………….. opposed to the continued regime change wars.

No main stream media would give her the time of day. The so called “free press”. Really a joke!

Bernie Sanders ………… plenty of coverage but the Democratic Establishment see him as a threat and are willing to lose to Trump rather than support the ONLY candidate who wants to shift the entire set up to a citizen first platform.

Can’t have that. Would cost too much or rather it would cost the ESTABLISHMENT corporate overloads too much.

Here’s the bottom line for Tubularsock.

The entire system is MADE UP.

So we the people just need to MAKE UP A NEW SYSTEM.

Well, lets start with Bernie’s modest projected programs and build from there.

And the cost? Hell! Making “money” out of thin air has already been perfected by the central bank, so we just make more of it and AGREE that the money is worth something.

That is how it is done now ……. take a look!

All Tubularsock asks is that all of these establishment people stay out of HELL so Tubularsock will have a comfortable warm get-away to hang out in because the Cayman Islands is just too expensive.

SAVE THE PLANET …….. LEAVE!

 

IT COSTS TOO MUCH!

You know, Tubularsock finds all the debates over “How Are We Going To Pay For It” such an odd concept.

“Money” is just a concept, an idea out there in the space. IT IS MADE UP!

At one time “they” attempted to tag money to some physical reality like GOLD.

And GOLD too is just a physical concept due to agreement …… really, in truth it is worthless. UNLESS you agree it has value and then BY AGREEMENT it has value.

Now Tubularsock has always valued potato chips, no really. Potato Chips have value.

And as a means of value there is a problem with potato chips because in Tubularsock’s case, once Tubularsock has eaten the potato chips, well you can see why others chose GOLD.

OH my, Tubularsock digresses.

Well when people speak about Medicare For All or The Green New Deal or even Welfare for the poor the chorus is “WE DON’T HAVE THE MONEY”.

“HOW CAN WE GET THE MONEY?” “WHO’S GOING TO PAY FOR THAT?”

Well it is just a matter of priorities, we just have to change the agreement.

For example, back in 2013 TIME MAGAZINE did a study of cost-per-flight-hour data for U.S. military aircraft.

Now it is 2019 so you can be positive that the cost reflection is way, way, way, way higher now. In fact, you can count on it.

But somehow we can afford these costs. Now why is that? And then, if we shifted these costs to helping the poor and healthcare and the environment then how could it cost any more than we are spending right now.

You see the money is already being spent and we have it to spend so let’s not spend it on what we are already spending it on and rather on what we really need!

So check this out:

To fly Air Force One (The President’s “ride”) it costs $161,591.00 a FLIGHT-HOUR! That is not the cost of the on the ground costs this cost is the cost while it is in the air!

The President’s Huey Helicopter (This is the President “chopped-ride”) cost $13,634.00 a FLIGHT-HOUR!

Would you like to add up OrangeTweets hours on these two aircraft to just deliver his orange-fat body to Mar-a-Lago for golf! And this is for 2017 IN Flight Cost.

The cost of on ground expenses for the Secret Service and Coast Guard protection and staff costs are not reflected in these costs.

Well, 6 million 6 hundred thousand dollars for IN FLIGHT COST only and this is JUST FOR Mar-a-Lago trips!

 


Melania & OrangeTweet with the Secretary Of The Deplorables, Tubularsock deplaning THE Mar-A-Lago Express …………. FOUR!

 

Now the difficulty of exacting these figures is a challenge because many sources use different base lines depending on what agenda they are trying to push. And “in flight hour cost” are always rising so good luck on keeping up.

And this is not just an OrangeTweet issue. Obummer spent $96.9 million on travel during his 8 years of his Presidency but presently OrangeTweet is running about a half of million A MONTH more and that is JUST THE COST OF AIRFARE!

However, picky, picky, picky. The point is not that the President wastes money traveling BUT that money could be spent far better for citizens needs.

 

But why stop there?

The Global Hawk Drone cost $49,089.00 (2013 rate) a flight hour …… remember that is just while it is in the air. EVERY HOUR IN THE AIR.

Oh and it can surpass 30 hours in a single flight. Which means that for that one flight the cost is $1 million, 472 thousand, 670 dollars.

But there must be a cost to build this thing, right?

Yep!

The “fly away cost” from the factory of a Global Hawk Drone was in $10,000,000.00 in 1994 BUT by 2013 the price became $69,900,000.00 each and then went to $131,400,000.00 each! (that is MILLION )

This price hike is known as a COST OVERRUN to some but to others, Tubularsock included, it is massive CORPORATE WELFARE and it happens all the time.

Seems no one notices except when some homeless man cheats with his food stamps!
And then we have a Congressional Investigation on this cheating of the system.

And we do this all with righteous indignation!

But corporate welfare to Northrop Grumman is just business as usual.

The Global Hawk Drone is the type that Iran just shot down after it crossed into their air space. Oh well, $131 million. WE CAN AFFORD ANOTHER ONE, right? It’s just the cost of doing business!

But the beat goes on:

Remember the per flight hour is the time the plane is in the air and has nothing to do with the cost of maintenance or the incredible price tag and COST OVERRUNS of each of these and many others of the thousands of planes that the USAF fly EVERYDAY!

And as Tubularsock is writing this, OrangeFuck is planning his Military Bull Shit Offensive for the 4th of July and the outrageous costs that will be wasted and then to hear, WE CAN’T AFFORD FREE EDUCATION FOR ALL —– HORSE SHIT!

No, it is priorities NOT money that is the issue.

But here is the critical part, this is not a Democrap vs. Republican’t issue!

THIS IS A TRANSITIONAL ISSUE!

What kind of world do you want to live in?
And YOU decide!

When you step outside of your door every morning, YOU choose what you meet.
Don’t think so ………….. try it and pay attention!

Don’t fear ………. Tubularsock will turn back to cynicism tomorrow, promise!

 

TARIFF & BEER

 

A half ass Trump produces half ass policies producing half ass outcomes for a half ass country!

HOW PERFECT! Oh yes, American Exceptionalism!

Could the dumb ass get any better than this?

 

 

COKE is raising its prices and BEER is going up. Damn, those TRUMP TARIFFS are sure helping out us deplorables!

But rest assured the soybean farmers are going on corporate welfare, BMW are raising it’s prices and Harley-Davidson is moving some of its work out of the country.

Goldman Sachs projects Ford and GM will both lose $1 billion each this year because of Trump’s tariffs.

Well hell, it’s only money!

 

The interesting problem is that the trade war with China sets in motion a loss in market share.

And the longer all this continues, soybean farming will grow in other countries and once that becomes established it may NEVER shift back to the way it was before Trump’s destruction of the American soybean farmers.

But that doesn’t really matter. Fucking Dump hasn’t any stock in soybeans!

So, you got to admit that no one except The Imbecile In Chief could have bankrupted a gambling casino but THAT is the “brilliance” of Dump’s business aptitude.

You’ll understand what direction we are going economically when you see the first “garage sale” on the White House front lawn. Cash Only!

 

Capitalism’s Contribution: looting, lying, and acting obscene

© 2017 Dan Stevenson III

the die is cast
the money on the table
some people may die
is it really that bad
just look at the profit
it’s ours ‘cuz we’re able

it’s only good business
it’s just what we do
if they’re in the way
what are we spoze to do
if we don’t take advantage
we’re all going to lose

it’s there for the taking
the law’s on our side
we made it that way
the game being played
it’s really their fault
if they don’t step aside

sure we’ll help their children
we’ll put them in camps
we’ll do what we can
you must understand
it’s best that you see
we have a smart stance

we’ve done this forever
our heritage, you know
it’s way too important
to just let it go
so call in security
to protect what is so

it is our right
our history complete
we don’t mind doing
what has to be done
until the next time
with a butt of a gun

the damage we do
to land, water, and air
is not of concern or
cause for despair
we donate most heavily
for orphan repair

the profit which is
the ultimate treasure
can be used to buy
all in good measure
the next exploitation
to protect this great nation

sure some have to die
for others to live
but really we’ve found
it’s just like it is
not one thing to worry
or even forgive

so stack up that money
and oxygen tanks
so we can survive
as others all die
‘cause we got the talent
when the earth’s out of balance

yet some keep on yelling
it’s too late to correct
but what do they know
with no portfolio
our investment appreciates
the longer we go

it’s called progress you sillies
you don’t even know that
if you don’t risk
you’re just scaredy-cats
so count yourselves in
all the way to the end

so come on no worries
for what we do know
is dow jones is up
we’ve got money to burn
at least just enough
to cover the earth’s very last turn!

 

MONETIZED RELATIONSHIP?

tube special report

 

NEWS THAT ISN’T!

The German Economic News  reported that a current Princeton/Northwestern University study has discovered that, The United States is no longer a democracy. Well no shit, Dick Tracy!

It takes two Universities to study and come to THAT conclusion?

Even a fucking beer swigging, football watching, wife beater, with a sixth grade education has figured that out just sit’en on his fat ass! It’s just that he doesn’t give a shit!

You see the Universities discovered that “. . . political decisions no longer serve the needs of citizens, but the interests of a small economic elite”. Wow. That’s as surprising as “fish have fins”.

Where in the fuck have these “educated people” been! Fucking DisneyLand?

And sit down because they discovered that in the realm of foreign policy it is the COMMERCIAL INTERESTS not the American citizen that the U.S. Government represents.

And they found that, “In the United States, the majority does not rule . . . As soon as a majority disagrees with the economic elites or organized groups, the majority loses . Although in the US the majority principle is incorporated in the Constitution, we note that even if fairly large majorities want a certain policy, they do not get it “.

The researchers determined that the U.S. government has become an oligarchy or a Corporatocracy. This means that a very few among the privileged and wealthy are literally controlling everything.

And Congress and the President do not have as much power as the American people previously thought but are controlled by the elite.

TUBE MERBOMA

Now there is no surprise here for those who have wanted to see the truth but most Americans believe that their VOTE counts for something. IT DOESN’T! It is all a sham.

And you can vote for Hillary or Jeb but you’ll get the same government. These people are just puppet figure heads and nothing more!

Tubularsock just can’t figure out why something so obvious is refused to be seen by the general American public.

Regardless of whether we face it or not it will not remain this way. It will either be the American public forcing a demand for change and going to the streets in mass or a collapse from within from the weight, just because shit is heavy, and that weight will bring us down.

Either way it will not hold!

Tubularsock has been boarding up his windows in his top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA as a precaution.

Tubularsock has a bank account.

You may not have been following this story but Tubularsock has been following it for several months now and it’s rather weird to say the least.

Since March, 2013 there have been 51 bankers that have died. Some by suicide, some by questionable circumstances still up in the air, and some by “accidents”. According to Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten (Economic News of Germany).

Now hell, people die everyday but these are all successful bankers and they are dropping like flies.

Now why is that?

For example Geert Tack, a 52 year old “flawless, athletic, slim, successful” banker who worked at ING Group and handled portfolios for wealthy bank customers washed up on the beach in the port city of Ostend, Belgian on Wednesday December 3rd.

He left his villa in Vondelen and headed to work but never arrived. He had left his laptop and his cell phone in his mansion.

The autopsy has not been completed so suicide, perhaps or maybe murder, perhaps. Or maybe a total collapse upon finding himself without his laptop and cell phone. You know, in todays world one can not be “unplugged” for even a minute?

Or lets look at Shawn Miller, the CEO of Citigroup. He advised managers and other customers on sustainability, including environmental and social policies. These include the areas of mining and renewable energy. He worked for Citibank in various monitoring functions in over 100 countries.

Miller was found dead in his New York apartment in March 2013. His cause of death is still unclear. His body was found by the police in the bathtub with his neck completely cut open. No half way job here!

They found no weapons and no apparent “violent external force” but murder is suspected.

Which if you look closely Dr. Watson it would be rather difficult for a person to cut open his own neck and not leave behind a weapon. Cleaver devil, I should say.

Now the house camera did show that he allowed an “unknown” man into his apartment that WAS NOT his current lover.

Now how about the “accidental death” of Robert Evans a 30 year old vice-president of Bank of America Merrill Lynch who fell off his bike and smashed his head on a rock after losing control on a fast descent as he competed an Iron Man triathlon on the French Riviera.

An eyewitness saw Mr Evans swerving repeatedly before he hit the rock.

“Accidental”? Seems like it ………

Robert was Vice President of Electronic Trading Technology at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in the London office.

Another “accidental death” was 54 year old J. Patrick Sheehan, a managing director for public finance at Well Fargo in New York.

According to a police statement, he died at the scene, as did the driver of his livery car, after a Ford Explorer sport-utility vehicle crossed the median and struck his limo.

“Accidental”? seems like it.

Why does Michael Hastings car “accident” come to Tubularsock’s mind? That was just a regular car accident …….. right, right?

Sometimes some people seem to know too much ………

Now like Tubularsock has stated, people die all the time and accidents do happen but when they happen within a curious “trend” well just maybe something else is happening.

IT'S ONLY MONEY

For example:

March 11, 2013: Mohammed Hamwi, IT specialist financial company Trepp in New York. Was on the street and was shot three times in the head, reports New York Post .

July 29, 2013: Hussein Najadi, founder of the Arab­Malaysian Banking Group was shot dead in a car park in Kuala Lumpur by a shooter at close range. A suspect was arrested in September 2013, reported The Star .

April 13, 2014: Tanji Dewberry Vice President of WL Ross investment in New York and Deputy Vice Presi of Credit Suisse. She and her son burned to death at their home in New Jersey, reports The Daily Mail .

April 18, 2014: Benedict Philippines, Director of the Bank Ans­Saint­Nicolas, was shot dead along with his wife and child by unknown assailants in their house, Reuters reports.

July 6, 2014: Julien Knott, Director at JP Morgan. He and his wife were shot dead at their home in New Jersey, reports the International Business Times.

And then there are the suicides which make up about a third of the total number.

Now for the Tubularsock disclaimer. The world is a big place and lists like this could be created based on a variety of professions but Tubularsock does find this curious and is only bringing this to your attention to alert you about this and thereby maybe you’ll find a connection. Or not.

It just reminded Tubularsock of the ending of the movie “Wag The Dog”, that’s all!

Oh well, Tubularsock over thinks sometimes but what if ……….

Oh, and Tubularsock closed his bank account ……… too scary!
