As the title reads, my blog is back. I’ve had some time to think about it and I don’t care if my employer finds this because I have a right to write what I wish so long as I am not doing anything criminal with it. I am also taking the lock off my Twitter account. If I want to write and publish pro-Socialist views, then that is my constitutional right. I’ve had enough of this misplaced fear of mine. I miss writing this blog.
So today I have a lot on my mind. I am very angry at the greed of the corporations. I am also angry at the so-called economists that are harping on inflation. Inflation is a myth according to Modern Monetary Theory. The government could print and unlimited amount of money and it would still retain its value because of the collective belief that money has value. After all, money is not held to the gold standard anymore.
I am sick of the continuous punishment of the working class and all of the government assistance literally going to the wealthy and the corporations in the name of trickle down economics. When given the tax breaks, incentives, etc., the wealthy just hord the money; nothing coming down to the working class at all. And don’t get me started on the price of gas as the invasion of Ukraine did not create a shortage; simply an excuse to extract more capital from the working class.
Finally, I got angry that my cell phone provider keeps sending me these texts about internet and communications assistance that I will never qualify for because, according to federal poverty guidelines, to be a poor single person I would need to earn no more than around 18,000.00 a year. 18K a year! That’s not poverty, that’s homelessness and destitution.
