Vulture Capitalists Love It When We Focus On The Insignificant

by Richard @ Flexible Reality – Sep. 17th, 2016

A quick survey of the expressed concerns of Americans reveals a startling fact: we pay an inordinate amount of attention to the insignificant, and ignore the truly important issues. Vulture capitalists love it when we focus on the latter since it mitigates any focus we might expend on areas where they have skin in the game. For example, do you honestly believe the Koch Brothers give a flip about whether Pres. Obama is a Muslim or American born? Whether the CEO of Goodwill is involved with the abortion issue? Whether the Pastor of one of the Mega-Churches has any concern with Comcast’s monopoly over internet access? No, and hell no. Let’s stop being gullible wasting time and talent on minutiae, and focus on the real issues. Below is a quick listing of the real, and the phony.
