On Not Watching the “Debate”

No Talking Keep Cranking

I’m glad I didn’t watch the debate. What are they debating anyway? Spending cuts, deficits and taxes. Why do people listen to that stuff? Do they think that is a way to act like an adult like it shows other people you are a responsible person? One needs to debate about a deficit when the fed can’t even give money away? Cut spending so more money doesn’t get spent to buy stuff? This will help the economy? You would think that after the last bank crisis the press might allow some people who have actual ideas about real things to talk occasionally. But then I wouldn’t be listening anyway so I guess it doesn’t matter. I keep thinking about all the young able bodied Americans who are in prison, school, the armed forces or just unemployed. I guess it really doesn’t take much work to produce enough food and build enough houses for everyone to stay alive. Seems like there are actually way too many houses all sitting empty. Why do people even bother worrying. Even the people who actually have jobs rarely do anything productive. I work in a doctors office and at least 95 percent of the work is shuffling papers. A lot of the people who do actual work like building things or harvesting crops are immigrants used by “business” men to make them an “honest” buck while they are denied many basic human rights. Sometimes I think the people who really hate immigrants are the same people who don’t want to realize that they do nothing for no one. If everyone one washed their own dishes and made their own food no one would have a job. Its kinda sad, technology has made the economy so productive that people really don’t have to work that much but instead of realizing that and making some changes people are led to believe they need to support a larger prison population, more higher education and a bigger military and if they don’t have a job they should just feel really bad and stay out of sight. What else can people really do anymore? There is no public culture in America. The occupy movement looked so weird because it joined human beings together without giving people there marching orders. There is power in people just being together as people. If people went to school to learn how to think and act for themselves and be part of a living culture, if they turned off the TV,realized it was an empty box that had removed their souls and instead of getting up and going someplace else to get told how to be they just turned to their neighbor and started a conversation about what its like to be a human. Imagine people talking about what it’s like to be a imperfect fallible mortal human being able to make decisions and do things out of some inner desire instead of trying to act and feel like some twisted “ideal person”,some manipulated advertising created capitalist statistic analyzed and picked apart by the new technocratic high priests.
