Okay, so we’ve occupied Wall $treet for almost a month, now what? How do we take this to the next level? Well first, you have to understand your enemy. You wanna know why Wall $treet was drinking Champagne from a balcony while laughing at the protest? It’s because they’re already so deeply entrenched in your gas tanks, your wallets, AND your digestive tracks that it’s nearly impossible to tell where they end and YOU begin. That dump you took this morning… brought to you by Monsanto. 

Look, it’s one thing to sit collectively in peaceful protest but now it’s time to level up. It’s time to go home sit down and do a little research. Take an afternoon and invest a few minutes to find out just how much your bank contributed to the financial meltdown.Research the corporations that make your kid’s snacks, handle your insurance, or refine your gasoline. Find out just how much they contribute to Political Action Committees and then find out where those PACs stand on issues that are important to you. Yeah, I know this seems like hard work but trust me, it’s all there on the Internet. All you have to do is sit down, fire up the computer, and convince yourself that the Internet contains more then just porn. 

Do you wanna know a secret about those people sipping Champagne on the balcony? They’re betting you’re too lazy to do this simple research… and they’re right… because they watch porn too.

Next, we’ve got to fix Congress because let’s face it, it’s as dysfunctional as the cast of Jersey Shore. Seriously, letting Congress vote themselves a pay raise is like letting Alcoholics Anonymous hold meetings in a brewery, someone’s getting drunk and then someone’s getting raped.

Look, this is NEVER gonna get fixed at the polls; the system is broken because our democracy is clogged with money. We have a pay as you go government. Lobbyists are the deliverymen of self-interest; they are the agents of agenda. They arrive in DC with suitcases full of suntans, money, and power. They whisper policy into the ears of our lawmakers as they line up their next putt. All the while knowing that the political action committee they represent is sending out another mass email telling their VERY rich members to pony up more cash because democracy is almost theirs. 

So there you have it. If you want your country back, you’re gonna have to start exercising due diligence every day for the rest of your days… or you can go back to video games, American Idol, and super sized happy meals as if none of this ever happened. Who knows… maybe there IS no spoon.

Take me to your leader

Click for audio version
Last weekend, Occupy Seattle disrupted a Pro-Occupy Wall Street Forum, thus driving away actual supporters. Their complaint; they didn’t like the power dynamic created by speakers on stage talking into microphones. That’s like a Christian protesting church because they’re getting the message out.

Okay, when protesters start protesting forums supporting their protest because they protest the use of microphones, well… that is when it becomes apparent that this movement needs a leader, that’s when it become apparent that it can’t be just anybody, and THAT’S when it becomes apparent that not everyone should protest. 

You see successful protesting is a lot like golf. You must first learn the etiquette before you learn the game. Perhaps these protesters could help in other ways like oh, I don’t know… shutting the fuck-up and baking cookies for the rest of us. 

It’s time for a leader. The movement NEEDS to have a face and that face needs to have a name worthy of a hearty political chant-circle. The movement needs a face with a name because we love t-shirts with catchy slogans. The movement needs a face with a name because WE… LOVE… DISSIDENT ART. 

Christ, just look what the word “HOPE” and a photoshop’d pic of Obama did in 2008. It gave America such a boner that we just couldn’t wait to rub one out in the voting booth. We had pre-vote parties, post ballot coital parties, and for a week, if you saw a sock on the ground and it wasn’t tied to another sock, you didn’t pick it up. We were happy.

So yeah, you need to pick a leader. Oh sure, this whole “We are one voice” got everybody fired up but let’s face it, as in the case I just mentioned, some of these voices aren’t quite right. But I digress.

My point is, now that you’ve gotten evicted, you still need the support of the people, and to do that you’ve got to pick a leader and take it to the next level. Letting all of this momentum go to waste would be like popping a Viagra then taking a nap. 

Look, you should have a good idea of what needs to be accomplished by now so stop wasting your time on the pleas of the vegans, the potheads, and the “Stop Moon Mining” people. 

We already know that the first things to be accomplished are getting the money out of politics and punishing unethical behavior. So can we quit stroking every cause’s dick just to make them feel good? After all, aren’t we trying to get hand-jobs out of politics?

And we can start with the Supreme Court of the United States because if anyone needs a lesson in ethics, it’s the very court that granted corporations all the rights of personhood with none of the responsibilities.

You see, A few hours after the Supreme Court met to consider hearing challenges to the national health care overhaul, also known as the “Health Insurance Profit Preservation Act”, Justices Scalia and Thomas were the honored speakers at a fundraiser for a conservative legal group that was sponsored in part by health care reform opponents involved in the very same litigation.  That’s like taking the wife and kids to your girlfriend’s birthday party all the while swearing that she doesn’t mean a thing to you.

Yeah I know… it sounds really fucked up when I put it that way.

First Amendment Faux Pas

Click for audio version
A little while back, first grade teacher Jennifer O’Brien posted she was a “warden for future criminals” on her Facebook page and this week a judge ruled she could be fired from her tenured job. Now I tend to agree but not for the comment but because anybody dumb enough to post something like that via the social media highway should not, under any circumstances, be allowed anywhere near the formative minds of young children. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m pretty sure she’s right but when you’re a teacher, those are your inside-your-head thoughts not barfing-on-Facebook thoughts.  

Now she does have the first amendment right to post whatever she likes on her Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ accounts but let’s be honest here, no one’s really hanging out on Google+ now that they’ve gotten used to the new Facebook layout. But I digress. 

My point is, she does have the right to post anything she likes within reason and by reason I mean the Patriot Act but that’s a rant for another day. That said, your First Amendment right only guarantees free speech, not employment. All I’m saying is that just because you have the right to say something doesn’t always mean you should. You don’t believe me, ask Gilbert Gottfried.

Now it was also rumored that a Middle School principal spent a weekend searching students Facebook pages and then suspended the ones that had foul language on their profiles. Of course that would defeat the purpose since it would just give them an additional 6 hours a day to talk more shit on Facebook. But I digress. 

Look, I don’t have all the answers, my head swims every time I try to get a grip on reality. I see shit like American Express hijacking Small Business Saturday, a cause meant to support small businesses. I mean how ironic is that? People… let’s not start taking long hot showers with American Express just yet. American Express will show support for ANY entity that accepts the American Express card for the exact same reason movie critics can’t stop talking about this week’s new release… IT’S THEIR JOB!!!

My point is, fuck “Small Business Saturday”, how about “Small Business Everyday”? And while you’re at it, lend a hand to the Occupy movement and leave your credit cards at home. 

Now I know that this latest news cycle has really cast a shadow on the Occupy movement so let me give you a little reminder of what they’re fighting for. I’ll begin by giving a shout-out to Coca-Cola and the Grand Canyon for reaching an accord regarding the sordid issue of plastic bottles and hefty donations.

You see, the Grand Canyon was all set to ban plastic bottles until Coca-Cola, the distributor of Dasani water AND major donor of over $13 million to the National Parks Foundation, pointed out how it would be awfully hard to justify donating so much money to our national parks if they weren’t allowed to destroy them. 

Of course you probably missed these news stories because of the Penn State child molestation and subsequent firing of the winningest coach in college football history, Joe Paterno. Now at the risk of my wife never ever speaking to me again, I’m gonna come right out and say that based on the facts, Joe Paterno is culpable for every child molested by Sandusky after he was informed of what was happening. Let’s be honest here, Joe Paterno had knowledge of the incident, nobody’s denying that; Joe Paterno informed his superiors of the incident, nobody’s denying that; Joe Paterno failed to call the police and sadly, nobody’s denying that either and therein lies the rub. To quote JoPa “Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won't taste good.” I’m betting he’d like a little salt right about now. 

Yeah I know… it sounds fucked up when I put it that way

How May I Help You?

Click for audio version
Okay, so a lot of us just can’t seem to make the time to get down to an Occupy event for whatever reason. Life is busy; especially when you have kids I get it. Maybe little Timmy’s got soccer practice, which when you think about it is really stupid because even little Timmy knows soccer will NEVER catch on in this country. But what the hell, at least the little shit’s getting some exercise. But I digress.

My point is, no matter how busy you think you are, you can still help by dining and shopping at family and locally owned businesses. The food alone is much better. I mean where would you rather go for Italian food; Olive Garden or Little Toni’s in North Hollywood? I’ll give you a hint; only one of them is a REAL Italian restaurant that doesn’t even have a website while the other is owned by the exact same corporation that also owns Red Lobster and Longhorn Steakhouse restaurants which means you’re not getting any family recipe handed down from generation to generation. What you are getting is food made by corporations for your institutional dining pleasure.  All pre-measured, pre-bagged, and ready to heat-n-serve.

Do you really think your 2 for .99 tacos contain 100% real beef? How about the cheeseburger on the dollar-value-times-are-tough menu? It’s neither cheese nor burger. If you paid a buck then chances are it’s a thin slice of yellow soy filler on a patty of sizzling hot brown soy filler. 

Look, the pilgrims didn’t jump off the boat and go shopping at Walmart. Yeah I know, there’s that whole taking shit from the native’s thing, which wasn’t cool at all but that’s for another rant. I’m just saying, corporate Amerika needs your holiday dollars like the cast of Jersey Shore needs movie deal. 

Now some of you might make the argument that boycotting corporations would cost jobs? Well considering our species just became 7 billion strong, we’ve already got more people then jobs. You see, people fuck like rabbits and they’re real stupid about it because somehow nature found a way to make men swear then can’t have sex with a condom and that they’ll promise to pull out. While jobs on the other hand pull out all the time. But I digress.

What I’m saying is knock it off with the babies right now. I mean seriously, it’s a vagina, not a fetus powered revolving door. If you’re married, fine, have one to replace each of you and maybe, maybe a third for spare parts BUT only if one of the originals is a bad copy. 

It’s our own fault, we started messing with Mother Nature the moment we invented the bicycle helmet and now kids are so over protected that defective units are slipping through the cracks and we’re overrun with broken floor models. 

With 7 billion people, I think it’s time we got back to our ‘survival of the fittest’ roots. Maybe we can start by putting Dingo ranches next to preschools or… STOP MAKING BABIES FOR A LITTLE WHILE!!!.

And don’t give me that we’re the superior race crap the planet isn’t ours. Look around you; do you REALLY think we’re the superior species? You think we’re smarter than dolphins? Why because we can rationalize AND have thumbs? Why do you think dolphins don’t have thumbs in the first place, evolution? No, it’s because they’ve seen what we’ve done with them.

Do you think we’re superior because we have sex for enjoyment? Well guess what, so do dolphins and, once again, they don’t have thumbs!!!  Do you think we’re superior because we can have orgasms? So do pigs and urban legend has it that they can last up to 30 minutes. Now I don’t know if this is true or not since I usually cum first and then fall asleep.

If you really think we’re superior then please explain to me how Michigan lawmakers can pass an anti-bullying law that actually includes a clause that makes it okay as long as it’s part of your religious or moral belief system. That’s like saying you can’t beat your wife unless you think she deserves it. I know… it sounds pretty fucked up when I put it that way.

How Much?!?!

Click for audio version
Look, we all pretty much agree that the government is too big. Unfortunately, we can’t all agree on what to cut. Liberals wanna cut defense, Republicans wanna cut social safety nets, Tea Partiers don’t care what you cut, just so long as you cut something and cut it to the quick, and Conservatives… well Conservative want you to pay the fire department before they put out your deep-fried turkey flare-up.

So what IS too much government? Is it too much government when they prevent Wall $treet from tanking the economy? Is it too much government when they prevent Marcellus Shale from turning kitchen faucets into fuel pumps? I wouldn’t know because apparently those regulations are as real as Santa Claus who, incidentally, won’t be visiting little Timmy AGAIN!!! But I digress.

I have an idea, why don’t we get rid of all government regulations for a period of oh… let’s say 90 days. That’s right, no rules, no regulations AND… no laws.  Be it rape or zoning, no government interference for 90 days. Anyone left standing after 90 days gets to vote on a brand new set of government regulations and TRUST me… there will be government regulations. 

You think the EPA is a job-killing monster? Really? Because of the EPA most corporations have entire departments dedicated to maintaining compliance with EPA regulations. Others have entire departments dedicated to the circumvention of EPA regulations. And that’s not even counting the 18000 people employed by EPA.  Saying the EPA is a job killer is like saying prostitution saves marriages. The only thing the EPA is killing is corporate Amerika’s buzz.

You know who really wants the EPA abolished, pharmaceutical companies that’s who. Because once the EPA is out of the way, cancer clusters will pop-up quicker then acne on a ninth-grader. And every time another patient is diagnosed with cancer a drug rep gets their wings… or something like that. So yeah, we should probably keep the EPA. In fact, we should probably give them guns. But I digress.

Why the hell are we looking to congress for jobs anyway, it’s not like they can wave a magic rent boy’s wand and create jobs. I mean seriously, do you really want a job created by THIS congress? We’re on our own people; time to create our own jobs. 

Look, I know we ALL can’t create our own jobs but I also know there are plenty of us out there that can and just haven’t been inspired yet. Well how’s this for inspiration; every time someone creates their own job, a executive gets caught fucking the babysitter. Every time someone hangs their own shingle, corporate Amerika is weakened just a little more. 

It doesn’t have to be anything new and exciting, you can wash cars in your neighborhood, go door-to-door with a screw driver offering to tighten loose screws and if you’re a handsome lad, loose women. 

Whatever happened to those guys that used to go door-to-door spray painting addresses on the curb? Well how’s this for a fresh spin on that old idea, offer to spray paint the wrong address on the curb. Never receive another collection notice again. 

Look this IS the “do something great” moment you’ve been waiting for; did you think it would just come on a sunny afternoon when you’d just finished masturbating and hadn’t a care in the world? Nope, they usually arrive the moment you realize you’re out of toilet paper

My point is, if you want that job, go out there and create it. Who knows, maybe you’ll be successful enough to hire someone that couldn’t create their own job. And every time THAT happens… a babysitter is caught fucking a corporate executive. But I digress.

Expansion Theory

Click for audio version
With the Occupy movement showing no signs of slowing, maybe it’s time for us to evolve. Isn’t that what we’re supposed to do, evolve? Aren’t WE supposed to be growing as a species? Isn’t it about time we gave up the “ME” mentality and began thinking outside the super-sized happy meal? And for those of you counting, yes that is the second time I’ve used that reference this week. But I digress.

Now I’m not suggesting some grand act of charity, nobody’s got time for that shit. But with roughly one out of every ten people now unemployed the house odds are high that you know somebody that needs a little help.  What little things could we each do for our unemployed friends? I know… how about we quit calling them bums? Can we at least start with that? 

Can we quit applauding politicians that demonstrate just how outta touch they are with reality every time they tell the unemployed to “Get a job”? Can we quit being douche-noodles towards our neighbors? Is it so wrong to NOT be surprised when a stranger tips their hat to you? And yes, I envision a world where we all where hats. But I digress.

Today’s unemployed was yesterday’s gainfully employed. Nobody’s out there taking a voluntary lay-off because their doctor told them to take it easy and live on dole for a while. They didn’t want to lose their job, their dignity, and in some cases their families? So can we at least, just for now, give these people a break? Besides, not being a douche-noodle is lot less expensive then it used to be. In fact it costs nothing but will help rebuild the life that Wall $treet, financial de-regulation, and the SEC, which is so spineless it blows itself to sleep every night, took from them.

You know what, now would also be a pretty good time to quit manufacturing crap that we don’t need. I mean seriously, how many collectible plates do you need before you realize you should probably buy a sundress and get laid? How many different video game attachments do you need for your P$4 Xbox720? Look, there should only be one game. One in which the goal is to solve the world’s problems.  And when a 12-year-old solves it parents everywhere will have no choice but to shut the hell up and let their children finish a sentence or two. My point is, we’re always saying how our children will inherit the earth, well… let them fix it, clearly we’re not up to the job.

And while we’re at it, lets level the field in both the House and Senate. I don’t know about you but I believe every lawmaker should make the average median and not the combined income of their constituents. How the hell is anyone able to relate to the middle class when they get nervous every time the middle class drives through their gated communities? And when exactly did politics become a career? Who woke up one day and said, “Ya know… there’s gold in them thar coffers”? 

Politics in this country has become a booming industry. Hell, I’d venture to say it ‘s the number one employer and if I was a betting man, I’d put all my dough into Kinkos because as this 4 year campaign cycle enters it’s fourth quad-mester, those apron wearing keepers of the toner are gonna be busy. But I digress. 

Look, I know politics provides jobs and it generates revenue for various economies… just like coal mining, offshore drilling, and the whaling industry. Yeah I know… it sounds pretty fucked up when I put it that way. But once again, I digress.

Perhaps we should quit trying to be an empire, a nasty little habit we clearly got from our British ancestors, and focus more on home. Let another country be Libya’s best friend. Oh sure, their crude oil is some of the most desirable in the world and it requires very little refining. But sewage like that should no longer concern us. Instead, why don’t we REALLY try to get the fossil fueled monkey off our backs? Wouldn’t it be great to be energy independent from the rest of the world? Wouldn’t it be grand if we invaded a country to stop REAL atrocities against humanity? Let’s face it; if our cars ran on Darfurians, our troops would have been boots down in Darfur the moment we found a refugee camp. If we got our energy from alternative sources we wouldn’t have to see Gadhafi’s bloody corpse all over YouTube!!! That man was ugly enough when he was alive. My point is, let France or Spain deal with crazy for a while, we need a break.

The Occupy movement has stated that it does not wish to become a political party and I have to ask… ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? Look, these knuckleheads in DC are not going to change so some of you are just going to have to step up to the plate and make this shit happen. I mean seriously, what harm could come of having someone in office that just wants to do the job right the first time so they can get home in time to see the game?

I think this is an excellent opportunity to create a third party. You’ve already shown more dedication, got more credibility, and make much more sense then the tea party. You don’t believe me? How many World Tea Bagging days do you recall?

Death of a News Cycle

Click for audio version
There was talk earlier this week about the Occupy Wall $treet protest possibly developing into an actual political party. And I remember thinking “why not?” Look how powerful the Tea Party became and those people are retards. 

But seriously why not? After all, they’re meeting everyday to form a general consensus of their demands AND they spell check their protest signs. In just three weeks, they’ve accomplished more then Congress has all year. 

Just like the Tea Party, they’re mad as hell but rather then slamming on the brakes of every car on the crazy train, they’re actually experimenting with a new and never before heard of negotiating technique where the word “No” is the last stop for an idea, not the first.  

More importantly, the media was finally starting to not only cover but pundit and pontificate all over the protest like it was a needy party girl with presidency issues. Sadly, this lasted only a nanosecond because that very same afternoon, Amanda Knox had her conviction overturned. And just like that, we witnessed the birth of a news cycle. 

And when it became obvious that Amanda Knox just wasn’t pretty enough to captivate the nation for more than  18 hours, Apple stepped up to the plate and rolled out its new iPhone 4s which sent iPhone junkies around the globe on a mission of unparalleled autistic like single mindedness in a drive to obtain the newest “must have”.

And then… well then the news cycle kicked into high gear when Steve Jobs passed away, eliciting millions upon millions of tributes, praise, and condolences from around the globe. All of a sudden the most important thing in social media was making sure the entire world knew they were behind Steve and his family 100 percent of the way.  And yet in all that praise, all that memoriam, and all those tributes not one person paid homage to Steve Jobs crowning achievement… making obsolescence desirable. 

Steve was a magician when it came to planned obsolescence. Why do you think the iPad STILL doesn’t a USB port? Because he knew you’d sell your wife’s soiled panties just so you could be the first on your block to have the iPad with wings. 

Hell, they’re not even trying to hide the fact that today’s gadget is tomorrow’s penny-whistle. Some stores even guarantee a “buy back” price so you’ll fell better about yourself when you drop $399.99 for the newest soon-to-be obsolete piece of silicon. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t an indictment against Mr. Jobs, after all, he was simply giving us what we asked for, obsolescence. 

But Steve’s death needn’t be in vain. It should serve as a lesson to billionaires everywhere; cancer doesn’t care how much money you have, it doesn’t want your wallet, just your life. Dying in silk pajamas is still dying. 

Which brings us to the tenth anniversary of the war in Afghanistan AND the death of this particular news cycle. In case you forgot, we’re still occupying an entire country and spending millions of dollars every day in order to capture, torture, or kill 50-100 al Qaeda operatives… yeah I know… it sounds really fucked up when I put it that way.

Party of Three

Click for audio version
Look, I'm done playing the left against the right against the conservatives against the tea party against puppies! Because when the smoke finally clears, we'll discover that we've been fighting against the best interests of all of the above! And then... we'll blame illegal immigrants.

So what now? I mean, here I've finally reached the end of the maze and much to my surprise, there wasn't a single fucking piece of cheese. Oh, It wasn't moved, it was NEVER THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!. 

All I found was just another reason to engage in more rhetoric. Just another opportunity to listen to pundits trash opposing pundits and then call it a successful day for their side, comforted in the knowledge that as long as today's problems don't get solved, they still have a job. So please Ed Schultz, tell us again just how evil Bill O'Reilly is and please, please, please Mr. O'Reilly, do tell just how Jon Stewart is warping what's left of the politically formative minds of today's MTV generation. Of course I'm referring to the ones that Jersey Shore missed.

This is INSANITY people. And as everybody knows, insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again expecting the outcome to be different. Or as they call it on the floors of the house and senate… "Work".

The public is just now awakening from a very deep consumer fueled sleep. Aging tea partiers are beginning to see the importance of social safety nets such as Medicare and Social Security. They may not want a black man to be president but they sure don't mind if he takes their blood pressure and writes them a prescription just so long as it's covered under their Medicare parts A, B, or C. Oh, and before they reduce the government, could they please do something about that fucking Part D donut hole? 

We're waking up like a wife from a "Cheating Husband" dream, we're pissed but don't know what the fuck to do about it. It's time for a real, viable third party, one that represents "We the People" not "We the Corporation". We need somebody from the Middle Class there to protect the Middle Class. How many of our lawmakers are Middle Class? I'm not talking $250k per year Middle Class, I'm talking 38k-60k per year Middle Class. HOW MANY?!?!?! 

We need somebody that's not afraid to look directly into the lens of the CSPAN cameras and scream "ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?!?". We need a third party, a people’s party. And if the term "people’s party" conjures up images of communism then perhaps your three-cornered hat is just a tad too tight for your misshapen head. But I digress.

So why Wall $treet? Because when I bounce a check they charge me $35.00 but when they bounce the economy we give them $700,000,000,000.00. Yeah, I know they paid it back but they didn't pay us back for what they stole from "We the People". You know, things like affordable health care, retirement accounts, and jobs. Remember jobs? You know, that thing you hated going to but did it anyway because you were addicted to food?

Now I'm not going to pin the responsibility to create jobs on Congress for the simple fact that if jobs were so important to Congress then they would be doing their jobs correctly. You can't get through to these people. It's like trying to describe the picture quality of your brand new LED flat screen to Stevie Wonder. Oh sure, he'll nod his head in agreement but he really has no idea what the hell you are talking about and truly wishes you would just shut up and get back on the bus that brought you to his doorstep. Our politicians show up to town halls, shake some hands, count the money, and leave. You're feeling all warm and fuzzy because you just donated to your favorite candidate, meanwhile they're in the back of a limo slathering themselves with Purell just to get the stench of constituents off their hands before it ruins their $2000.00 suit. 

Today's politicians are nothing more than elected lobbyists and THAT my friend is why we've landed on Wall $treet.

Your turn now - Economy

Hiring in U.S. Slowed in May With 54,000 Jobs Added

"The Labor Department reported on last Friday that the nation added 54,000 nonfarm payroll jobs last month, after an increase of about 220,000 jobs in each of the three previous months. The gain in May was about a third of what economists had been forecasting. The unemployment rate, meanwhile, edged up to 9.1 percent from 9.0 percent in April."

Look, I'm tired of blaming our lack of jobs on politics. Politics already gets blamed for so many other things; like the erectile dysfunction one experiences at the mere thought of Michelle Bachman's name on a presidential ballot.

Isn't it time we quit blaming politics for all of society's problems? Look, this shit ain't gonna be over in another month or two, hell, we've been in this mess since the Fall of '08, which means this 'slump' has outlasted 2 of my 4 marriages. There will be no Christmas miracle this year and NEXT summer, it's 'Stacations' for the lot of you.

If you want to see our economy change then you're going to have to roll up your sleeves and hang a shingle of some sort and start generating income on your own… just like our ancestors did before learning how to take land from the natives.

Now I know this all sounds like it just might be a little too much work, believe me, I understand. But unless you know something that I don't, waiting for Amerika, Inc. to save the day is like waiting for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve… by now, you're old enough to know better.

Seriously, the only way your government will help you now is if you're a millionaire… OR a country we have bombed, are bombing, or are eventually going to bomb.
