America 2017 = France 1789

We are looking more and more like France on the eve of its revolution in 1789. Our classes are distributed differently, but the inequity is just as sharp. America’s “aristocracy,” once based strictly on bank accounts, acts increasingly hereditary as the vapid offspring and relations of “stars” (in politics, showbiz, business, and the arts) assert their prerogatives to fame, power, and riches - think the voters didn’t grok the sinister import of Hillary’s “it’s my turn” message?

What’s especially striking in similarity to the court of the Bourbons is the utter cluelessness of America’s entitled power elite to the agony of the moiling masses below them and mainly away from the coastal cities. Just about everything meaningful has been taken away from them, even though many of the material trappings of existence remain: a roof, stuff that resembles food, cars, and screens of various sizes.

But the places they are supposed to call home are either wrecked — the original small towns and cities of America — or replaced by new “developments” so devoid of artistry, history, thought, care, and charm that they don’t add up to communities, and are so obviously unworthy of affection, that the very idea of “home” becomes a cruel joke.

And in this case, the palace people all live inside the DC beltway. They are all a bunch of power hungry (translating to money eventually) SOB's.
Maybe it is time to burn some torches and toss out the bums.

Miles Mathis has done a great service by uncovering and exposing the fact that almost ALL "stars" are actually members of the elite families. They are placed into positions of prominence. For example, modern art was created to give name to the pathetic efforts of rich family's off-spring. Children of elite families who possess no talent, yet "want to be" artists. So they paint and the product is referred to as modern art. Mathis who is not amused, points out the very obvious: the art sucks and that is why none of us "get it".

Almost all famous actors in Holly-Woood are descendants of the elite bloodlines. Rob Lowe for instance, is one of the most "royal" of all Americans!

His site is fascinating and I encourage the readers to give it a peek.

The names and places change throughout history but the CONDITIONS stay the same.
A powerful elite raking in all the gold, their friends and connections making laws to propagate that imbalance with laws and regulations, a draconian enforcement of laws that are openly prejudiced against the lower class and poor, and a glaringly and ever-widening gap between the haves and have-nots.
Hunger and desperation, coupled with simmering anger of the people, will ALWAYS result in blood in the streets.
Keeping a large part of the country dependent on gifts of money and food will only DELAY the bloodbath. It's coming.
Keep cheering (and buy ammo).
