The Koch Brothers are Fucked in the Head

After reading Jane Mayer’s book “Dark Money” I am disturbed.

The book describes the multi-billionaire Koch brothers and how sick they are.

Consider this: At my buddy’s farm these goat siblings stood up for one another against another goat. That’s just the natural order…siblings stand up for each other…you see it in rural Shoreham, VT.

Not with the Koch brothers. These sick twisted men, well Charles, he tried to blackmail a brother over homosexual relationships.  Fucked in the head.

This is what you get with a society as unhealthy as this one, where the rich are so busy and hell bent on money and power.

In another part of the book it talks about how David Koch who is worth something like $40 billion doesn’t even tip his hired help when they move all his stuff on the weekends when he and his family go out from NYC to the beach.

These people behave as though no one matters.

Fuck them. Humans have the ability to freeze someone out of the fold. I know how this works because it happened to me twice in my life: once after my car accident, and after I came out about my mental illness.  

Humans can freeze each other out of society and just fail to serve or deal with certain people. The greed. It’s just so transparent and sick. It’s twisted. Life is not about becoming a rich individual. This is selfish. The point is to rise as a society.

Those goats: brothers and sisters looking out for one another.

If society could freeze me out for having a mental illness it can certainly freeze out the Koch’s.

Society could just familiarize themselves with their picture like they would with someone on the FBI’s most wanted list and refuse to deal with them. 

When I had my mental break I said, “Hell is a cold place” out loud on Christmas day in 2012 in front of my parent’s home estranged from some of my friends and my phone took a picture in my pocket as if to capture the moment.

“Hell is a cold place” was one of many things I spoke outloud during my mental break as if I was quoting an authority impromptu and to myself. I think it means: that when humans are functioning at their best we can freeze people out who are toxic to our mission.

It happened to me twice: once was an accident and once was a disease that I had no control over.

If it can be used against me for those stupid reasons it can be used against the Koch’s for their greed.

Greedy People Run Health Care in America

Gone are the days when doctors traveled John Steinbeck’s heartland with a leather satchel tending to the poor out of the goodness of their hearts.

From hospitals to insurers to, yes, even doctors, greedy people run health care in America. Just like the greedy in the financial and energy sector. Health care providers are greedy. And greed needs to stop. We all need to take a deep breath and value what we have and who we are.

This latest article in the New York Times reports how some insurers are asking for rate increases of up to 41 percent this year.

It’s all because we have a for-profit health care system in America instead of a national health plan that covers all of our citizens.

Hospitals run up the number of procedures they perform on patients not because the outcomes are better, but rather because every procedure can be charged to that patient’s insurance.

Nobody wants to believe that doctors are greedy, but some of them are. Some of them are in bed with Big Pharma, over-prescribing and diagnosing patients just so that they can get them on drugs.

I spent all weekend reading about the maniacal Koch brothers. Greed has got to stop. These primitive men who beat their hands on their chests and scream, “I can do any fucking thing I want” when they don’t get their way are fucked in the head and they are running most of the corporate world in this country.

Instead let’s imagine a world where we come together around a bigger purpose. Imagine we don’t hate on each other online. Imagine we look out for each other, one neighbor looking out for another, everyone on a block knowing everyone else. Imagine a United States that, like a mother will instinctively do for her children, puts the interests of its citizens ahead of the interests of the rest of the world.

The Insatiable Desire for Money Among the Already Rich is Disturbing

Visit Uber CEO Travis Kalanick’s Twitter page and you will see that he describes himself as the Uber CEO and a “serial entrepreneur.” Read serial killer. The mindset is similar in certain ways: both want domination.

Just retire. You made your fortune. Please for the sake of the rest of us. In God’s good name what do these people who have made a fortune beyond all measurement need by working to make more money on top of it? Where does it all stop?

It’s like the Koch brothers spending, with their allies, north of $800 million on this election so they can make more money. They are so rich. Why can’t the super rich just retire and enjoy their money? How much more money do they need? Moreover can’t they part ways with most of their fortune and help others in need out?

Part of what the Free Masons laugh about when they get together is that the rich could not have built this great nation. They wouldn’t know what to do with a wrench and a car problem. They wouldn’t know how to build a bridge. They know how to skirt finance laws and rip people off, but are these virtuous traits? Hell no.

This country needs less greedy money whores and more well-balanced, generous, loving, caring individuals. There should be $15,000 allocated annually to each American above the age of 18 from taxes on the super rich and corporations. In return every able bodied American out of high school should be required to spend two years in the military until they are 20.

As an aside i think the genders should be segregated between the ages of 11 and 20 to prevent rapes and sexual assault even though “seperate but equal” rings in my mind from the terrible Jim crow days. Speaking from experience I and so many of my peers were distracted in front of females in school. Talk to some of the females and they could do without the males. And my liberal upbringing cries out that this is discrimination against women,  but consider we were talking about wild animals when we were talking about men and women humans. Cuz that’s what we are. Wild. From our jails to our university campuses. We’re wild. And when you mix wild men with wild women sexual assaults spike.

I whole heartedly support mixing the various races in America. One way Americans can overcome racial differences is to go into the service together and become a team together fighting (patrolling our outposts, monitoring the oceans, etc.) for USA and good naturedly ribbing each other about their racial backgrounds. We can teach them by modeling this behavior.

Now take sex again.

What if there were roles each gender played like gender roles genders play in basically every other species on planet earth and say that we’ve grown so far away from those norms we don’t see them modeled and pass them on to the next generation any more. Monkey see, monkey do.

And further more imagine that our survival depends on getting back to our traditions as tribal members, willing to fight and die for this great nation.

Now I’m all for women in the workplace and we need more of them managing fortune 500 companies and getting elected to political office. But their job description should be different and more intuitive to them.

That’s why requiring that every able bodied American serve for at least two years in the military will help.

And in the military it SHOULD BE taught that greed is not a value that is prized. That sacrifice and courage are more honorable. The histories of the various nations that make up America would be taught in the military. And it would be taught that we are the chosen few who entered the “Promised Land”. And we must defend this homeland to the death against all foreign threats like China and Russia, who Trump is SUCKING up to. What’s up with that? I mean I’m LGBT but homo alert. For real. Why don’t you and putin just go have butt sex? Brokeback mountain style…with putin looking like he did in those “staged” shots they took of him like horse back riding shirtless. Or hang gliding or whatever he staged to get elected in that strange country. At least in Africa and other poor nations like Ireland they wear their fortunes on their sleeve…their smiles. Poor country boys but rich in their hearts.

When all the other countries of Europe picked cathedrals and art as their demands in return for God’s love, Ireland said we’ll starve for God’s love. And so they did. The potato famine starved them.

Now I’m all set people. I know this is not real. That it’s just my mental illness that’s speaking, but what if some of the stories in the bible were true?  and even suppose they’re not…they are still creations of our ancestors to help future generations out.

I have accepted the need for medication and I know that like my now deceased brother who suffered from a similar mental illness I am prone to believe things that aren’t true.

Imagine there really was a God…or were multiple gods…how do we not know? We don’t know what is beyond our reality.

We should just resolve to retire after we’ve hit $10 million.  Collectively. I just think we should all agree that that’s the amount you need to live comfortably but modestly for the rest of your life. Maybe even $2 million. I don’t know. I just know that the mindless pursuit of ever more money (serial entrepreneur) is futile. It’s so much more about the interactions with our children that matters.

While the Hunters Hunt

It’s difficult to climb a mountain or read a book when the hunters hunt.

When the Koch brothers raise over $800 million to get their candidates elected.

This is war.

This is veterans committing suicide and dying on waiting lines because we underfund their health care,  yet the billionaire hunters hunt for more money.

It used to be tribal…tribes of humans looking after one another.

Now the hunters hunt and cars whiz a million different directions and pollution gets worse and it feels like we’re in our dying Era of human activity and still the hunters hunt.

They can’t get enough money… $10 billion it’s not enough… $20 billion, it’s not enough… $30 billion it’s still not enough…they hunt for more money.

If we could only hospitalize the greedy the way we can hospitalize mental patients and get them away from their tools of warfare against their fellow citizens but alas we can’t…not yet anyway.

When thousands upon tens of thousands of men and women operate for the hunters it takes a sustained resistance…people like Bernie standing up to them.

Taking the time to get educated about the issues and motivate others.

We’re still a community.

I still love my class mates from Middlebury because they were stimulating to be around and we shared a time and a place together.

It’s time we be monkeys.

Monkeys getting territorial about a food source.

They fight you know. I’ve seen video of it.

Monkeys going to war.

The hunters will hunt. There can never be too many suicides or mass shootings or extinction events to stop them from their singleness of purpose to make more money. Yes brothers and sisters they have blood on their hands and still they hunt for more money.

But the monkeys can fight back together.

If you ever loved anyone or anything more than yourself…realize that we are a tribe.

It’s in our DNA to link arms and march into the gunsmoke…they can’t kill us all if we stand together and march on them.

It’s very simple. The hunters want more money… we want more free time, more family time, more community, more learning, more athleticism.

Will you go to war with your brothers and sisters, not a conventional war but a war nonetheless? Primal instincts are in play.  Will you fight for what is right? What is just?

We don’t need another former soldier dead to realize that we need to do more in our short lives than be entertained and pick up a check every Friday.

We must go door to door in our neighborhoods which is a constitutional right and introduce ourselves. We must have our neighbors over for meals… and the rich and famous? Anyone can be famous in a neighborhood or a small town or a city. Let’s love those who have the capability and the interest in loving us back. We give so much attention and money and time to celebrities like Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift…they don’t pick our children up from school when we’re busy…we’re investing our money and energy into the wrong people.

No celebrities get interested in themselves and the illuminati and all the gimmicks and slights and arrogance that goes with being a celebrity. Then celebrities and billionaires like the Koch brothers work together to hunt us for more money.

Each day the means of making that money get trickier and trickier.

What is the point of living in a community when your neighbors lie and cheat and steal from you? When everyone is only interested in themselves? There is no point.

We can do better. We have to do better. It starts with how we raise our children. We really must not corrupt them. We really must show them love and give them an early role to play in the survival of the family: chores etc.

The hunters will hunt because there is nothing in their cold calculating hearts except dollar signs and profit margins, but we can choose to see a beautiful world where every minute of life is precious.

A life where one can hike a mountain, swim in a lake or read a book and not worry that while they are playing people like the Kochs are hunting them.

Let’s resolve right now that we’re here for the right reasons, the pure reasons, the natural reasons. That we are monkeys being hunted.

That we will not die passively…telling ourselves sweet nothings to make all the warning signs go away like the passengers on three of the four airliners that crashed on 9/11. That we will say “let’s role” and rush the attackers and fight to the death…not physically attacking the Kochs but holding sustained political pressure on our representatives until change is hard won and passed.
