Plunderstorms

Plunder.  In our post-Constitutional America, it is everywhere. According to the dictionary, plunder can be a noun or a verb:

verb: to steal goods from (a place or person), typically using force and in a time of war or civil disorder
noun: the violent and dishonest acquisition of property.

In either case, it is a near-perfect word to describe what has been happening to our nation.  Our environment has been plundered by deregulation and government policies that place a higher value on fossil fuels than human life. Unions have been plundered by massive corporations.  The middle class is similarly plundered by megabanks, shady mortgage brokers, unfair labor practices, lack of a livable minimum wage, and lack of reasonable medical benefits.  Our education system has been plundered by spending cuts and human service reductions that undermine our children’s hopes and dreams, as well as by school systems that seek to teach mythology (creation) as science. Our social safety net is under siege, from unemployment benefits to food assistance, medicare, medicaid, social security and everything in between.

And if we seek to rectify this damage by electing politicians that will actually represent our best interests in Washington DC? No luck there. Our right to free and fair elections has been plundered by Rovian attacks and Supreme Court decisions that render the current electoral process near-meaningless. Meanwhile drone strike by Executive Order – with questionable oversight from other agencies –  threaten our very lives. The US has become a consummate exporter of plunder as well, in Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, and lessor-publicized entities around the planet.  Once known for innovation and creation, today America squanders its blood and treasure on destruction, both foreign and domestic.  It may be an over-generalization to say that government spending flows toward fomenting death and destruction and away from social programs designed to build, repair, educate and heal.

The only facets of the Constitution that are being aggressively protected are those that ensure NRA members can tote huge assault weapons into fast food restaurants and ensure that corporations are people and money is speech.

How did this happen? And can it be reversed? Join us tonight as we tackle this question.

    And the plunder in Detroit continues.

    I read some articles at the voiceofdetroit.net site and am deeply sad and angry. Kevyn Orr is the emergency financial manager (EMF) there. Like all EMFs, appointed (NOT elected) Orr takes the place of an ELECTED official, thus locally overthrowing our [alleged] form of government. He’s not there by the will of the people, but by the will of a fascist governor. Moreover, EMFs so far are expensive, hire expensive consultants, know little to nothing of the local situation, and are there to fulfill the treasonous Koch/coporate agenda: privatize everything in sight, even if (maybe Particularly if) it kills citizens.

    I’m furious that corporations that CAN pay but haven’t paid their water bills still have service, whereas PEOPLE who CAN’T pay are being sentenced to death via lack of potable water and water for sanitation.

    Which brings to mind the Warka water tower. So far, they’ve been installed in various Ethiopian villages. Why not every other block or so in the US? They cost a HELL of a lot less than a filthy murderous bomber or a subsidy to a filthy murderous corporation. They’re pretty, too.

    Upon reading the word “Plunder” in Kathy’s post,immediately
    I thought Detriot. Capt. Mary, too, nailed it. As to why we
    do not install the Warka water towers to prevent people from
    dehydrating to their deaths, as a nation, could it be that
    we are not as civilized as the Ethiopians?

    I’ve been reading about Detroit today, too, and think it’s unconscionable that they have to seek help from the U.N. because their leaders in Michigan are perpetrating this on them, and no one in D.C. is listening.

    On an unrelated note, I’ve also been reading about the huge austerity march in London this past weekend. I didn’t hear about it at the time; just stumbled on it via some UK writers I follow online.

    They share many of our woes, but they also seem more willing to mobilize and speak up about it. I don’t know what it’s going to take over here.
