“I’m Mad As Hell And I’m XXX Going To Take This XXXXXXX!”

 

“I’m Mad As Hell And I’m Not Going To Take This Anymore!”

Bizzaro Foreshadowing

Mark Glover of Marfa Public Radio wrapped up our interview with words to this effect, ‘Is this what America is heading for?  Two classes?  The very rich huddled behind gated communities and the impoverished starving outside the walls?’

The black and yellow image of a torch-lit night and an angry mob carrying pitchforks staked with the “Dark Triad’s” head popped into my mind.  Call me an optimist.  I know.

A prong for the Machiavellian, the slightly longer and very rusty middle one spearing the psychopath, and a narcissist whose head was turned backwards on the last.  Ultimate justice for a lawless world.  But, not exactly suited for a radio audience who might be toting preschoolers to the local Texas IGA.  Before I could tone that down and into a: “Maybe it’ll come to pitchforks and torches that’ll restore the republic?” it was over and just like that we were off-air.  The studio line was just as silent as when I had dialed in.

Since it is almost time for me to tune into Garrison Keillor, I am reminded to stop any of Garrison’s other listeners right here.  If you’re even thinking about looking for that email icon to tell me that I’m the bat-crazy-psychopath for thinking that pitchforks and torches are a form of modern justice. Don’t!

For anyone of my readers who still holds the mid-evil belief that we have an evolved modern day justice system, you just need to read this.  And if that doesn’t do it, then visit the Capitalism Without Failure blog and overdose on Bill Black or catch Michael Lewis asking “How did no one notice that 24-year-olds who knew nothing were being paid $2 million?“.  So that’s modern justice?

The three headed beast—the Dark Triad—has decimated capitalism

The Dark Triad has destroyed our economy utilizing corporatocracy.  Removed our justice system.  Turned our military upon us.  Taken away our right to trial, we can now be held indefinitely—or assassinated .  Launched 32,ooo drones to spy on us.  Empowered a female-looking-Hitler to hire pedophiles off of pizza-box ads; paying them with our tax dollars to fondle our children’s privates; humiliating them in public while they etch what government power is into their once pure minds, that only moments before thinking about going to Disneyland.  Worse, they watch their emasculated dad being rendered powerless as their mom’s breasts are exposed. fondled and filmed for the perverts to watch later.  And after 15,000 hours as serving as an airline captain I assure you all that does nothing for security.  Nothing!  But, the ultimate sin was the inter-generational tyranny—destining our little children to a life of financial hell. All this so a few psychopaths could have a measuring contest with yachts, Gulfstream V jets and summer mansions.

When I put down the phone I realized that Mark had asked us all a question.  One that was designed to get us thinking.  It had been a busy week and like every other American I had a ton of stuff on my mind.

Corporations: Soulless Psychopaths

I’d just created a podcast interview with Dr. Daniel N. Jones, the postdoctoral researcher for Dr. Robert Hare, whose work I follow closely.  It is the underlying thesis for my work, Psychopathic Economics.

In the Documentary The Corporation Dr. Hare puts our soulless corporations—motivated strictly by profit—on the couch.

These wealthy, skyscraper sized monsters, exhibited all the characteristics of a psychopath.

The psychopathy checklist breaks into four different aspects.

✓ Being a manipulative person or a liar.  (AAA Rating of fraudulent mortgages, paying “scholars” to write papers praising derivatives in exchange for $124,000.00 so they could get them pushed into the market.).

✓ Antisocial behavior, some kind of breaking rules, whether it be social rules or legal rules. (Muzzling Brooksley Born who wanted to regulate derivatives, getting Greenspan to waive and promise to have Glass-Steagall removed (hat tip Jesse’s Cafe’) in order to join banks with investment houses).

✓ Impulsivity, or more specifically a lack of impulse control. (They knew.  Greenspan’s top-secret, library-removed, New York University, dissertation spelled out the housing bubble in the 1977 when he realized how homeowners tapped wealth from real estate before Home Equity Lines of Credit were a thing.  It discussed how prices would crash to levels below that of newly constructed homes.  His 1966 Objectivist article laid out the framework for confiscation of wealth through inflation.  In the 2000s he signed it for Ron Paul and told him he still believed in all of it.)

✓ Callous, kind of a lack of empathy towards others. (We have 1,500,000 homeless kids in America and parents so poor they’ve eat rats in front of them.  ”Fear Factor”—no electricity or TV required.  Perfect for the deprived children of Tent Cities who lack “advanced forms” of social entertainment that television executives call “reality TV”.  Excuse me for calling TV a weapon of mass dumbification.  To boost C.E.O. pay to 450-650 times that of the middle class worker, our jobs were sent to China.  The boobaling box said this was good economics.  China had 168 miles of paved highway and 5.5 million cars on it in 1990.  Today they have more paved highway than we do—53,000 miles and it holds 200 million vehicles.  Asia now consumes more oil than the U.S. and that growth has sent global oil consumption to 87 million barrels a day.  The world can only pump out 88MM bbl/day.  To subvert the job-theft authors whored themselves our as Globalization Pom-Pom Girls. CNBS’s paraded “experts” to convince boobaling watchers to borrow $9 billion from their Home Equity Lines of Credit and go take it to Starbucks so they could buy $4 cups of exotically named feel rich coffee.)

Psychopaths & Magnetism

But what caught my eye was a video on  Jesse’s American Cafe’ titled, I Am Fishead.  Precisely at the 22:38 minute point the narrator says, “In the spring of 2010 we heard back from Professor Hare.  For the first time in history his team was able to fish for psychopaths within the highest ranks of management at Fortune 100 companies.”  Later in the documentary Dr. Hare mentioned some very high scores of 8 or 9 subjects.

That and the math had me interested.  They had interviewed 203 executives.  Our populous has 1% of it that are psychopaths—9 of 203 is 4.5%.  The interview revealed the experts saw scores that they referred to as “toxic”.

‘Is this what America is heading for?’

That question foreshadowed my reading of the latest news.  A Morgan Stanley banker who co-headed the fixed income capital markets was charged by Darien police for stabbing a cab driver over an alleged dispute ensuing from a $204 cab-fair.  It’s hard to get by on $2 million a year when your limo doesn’t show up and you have to travel from Manhattan to your $3 million dollar home in Darien, Connecticut.

Here is NyPo’s account [✓ psychopathy checklist references are mine based on the upfront assumption that this is an accurate account]:

Mohamed Ammar said investment banker W. Bryan Jennings — a $2-million-a-year fat cat for Morgan Stanley — went from being a sweet gentleman he picked up in Midtown to a surly, knife-wielding “drunk” who stiffed him on the $204 fare when they got to Jennings’ Darien, Conn., home.

Cab driver Mohamed Ammar (above) says investment banker W. Bryan Jennings (below) slept off a night of drinking in the back of his cab and then slashed him when they got to Connecticut.

“I said, ‘You have to pay me. It’s the law,’ ” Ammar recalled at his Queens home yesterday, where he lives with his wife and three children. “He says, ‘What law? [✓ Antisocial behavior, some kind of breaking rules, whether it be social rules or legal rules.] You should go back to your own f–king country.’ [✓ Callous, kind of a lack of empathy towards others.]

“I say, ‘This is my f–king country, excuse my language. I’m an American citizen!’ ” said the driver, who is originally from Egypt.

“That’s when he pulled out the penknife . . . He leaned forward and yelled, ‘I’m gonna kill you, motherf–ker!” Ammar said. [✓ Impulsivity, or more specifically a lack of impulse control.]

“I saw his hand balled up into a fist and I thought he was going to punch me,” the cabby said.

“I put my hand out to protect, and that is when I saw the penknife. He went for my neck first but ended up slashing my hand many times as I was fighting him off . . . My hand was bleeding pretty bad” as Jennings fled on foot, Ammar said.

“He was drunk and out of control, and he could have killed me. That was one of the scariest moments of my life.”

. . .

“I tell him, ‘Sir, we are going to drive back into town so we can find the closest police station . . . Would you close the door?’ He refused. He sat in the seat as I drove with the door open.” Then the alleged attack took place.

Jennings allegedly told Ammar “the cops wouldn’t do anything to him because he pays $10,000 in taxes,” court records state. [✓ Being a manipulative person or a liar.]

From what we can gather Jennings got out of the cab and never called the cops until days later when he turned himself in.  That kind of blows his attorney’s abduction story to hell.  I got abducted a few days ago and just haven’t had a second to call the cops and report it. I was too busy creating derivatives of mass destruction. The entire thing was handled poorly by both sides.  The cabby could have let the guy out in his driveway and called the cops on his cell phone from the closest public road.  But lets not muddy the waters by playing Monday night quarterback.

The Network – “I’m as mad as hell” speech

This event brings to light several interesting things.  Are the sheeple waking up?  Like in the movie The Network, are they now, “mad as hell and not going to take it anymore”?  You screwed me out of $204 bucks I’m dragging your but to the police station.

Seriously, think about it: The bankers and Wall Street gave us one hell of a cab ride in 2008.  After they totaled their cab they had their ex-Goldman buddy slam us with a $10.4 trillion “bailout” fare.

Did one banker get stabbed by any us?  313 million passengers and not one penknife came out.  No one leaned forward and yelled, ‘I’m gonna kill you, motherf–ker!”  Did they?

They’ve committed inter-generational tyranny that have sodomized our grand-kids before they’ve been conceived or had the chance to get molested by team-pizza-box-pedophiles.  The negative externalities are many:

  • An unemployment rate of 22.5%;
  • 47 million Americans are on food stamps;
  • Our children have been saddled with even more debt which went to bailing out insolvent institutions who deserved to fail;
  • Responsible prime borrowers now face foreclosures rivaling subprime foreclosure rates;
  • 50% of all homes are underwater;
  • Home prices are through the first floor and will be subterranean soon—all bubbles over correct;
  • 25% of kids age 18-34 live in mom and dad’s basement;
  • 46% of kids 18-24 have no job; 12% of homes are vacant;
  • There are schools just for homeless children where kids “steal” ketchup packs so they can make soup over the weekend when there is no food in the tent or car that they are living in;
  • Tent cities have sprung up; and 60 Minutes now runs stories of children living in cars with their unemployed parents.

So, what is America is heading for?

It’s amazing a guy who pulls down $2,000,000 a year can allegedly stab someone over a $204 car ride when his limo no-shows.

We get stuffed with a $10,400,000,000,000 bill and not only does no one go to jail but after that no ones head is even on a pitchfork.
