Capitalism @ Its Finest

April 7, 2020

“We got a thousand points of light
For the homeless man

We got a kinder, gentler,
Machine gun hand

We got (closed) department stores
and (no) toilet paper
//
Got a man of the people,
Says keep hope alive
(Yes, that’s Mr. # 45)

Got (cheap) fuel to burn,
Got (bad) roads to drive.

Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world”

– Neil Young

 

.
Bidding death away

To the highest bidder

Need some PPE

Or a ventilator

To live another day

Pony up and pay

Or the shell

Of your being

Will be put

In a casing

6 feet in the ground

(Ultimate social distancing)

As 45’s administration

Has secured

Pallets of masks

To send them to……

No, not hospitals

Rather a

Distributor / broker

Who can then

“Auction” them off

To whichever

Customer or county

Wants them the most

Because that is how

Capitalism…….works??

From White House Press Conference 4 2 20

REAR ADM. JOHN POLOWCZYK, JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF VICE DIRECTOR OF LOGISTICS:

The 200,000 is going out as we speak.

MIKE PENCE, VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES:

Very specific about that.

POLOWCZYK: It will be – it will be delivered tomorrow.

REPORTER: Question –

PENCE: Let me be clear on that. What Jared announced, what the admiral said is pallets are being loaded right now to send 200,000 N95 masks to New York City to the public health hospitals.

POLOWCZYK: To the public health warehouse in New York City.

PENCE: All the health care workers, help is on the way.

POLOWCZYK: This product that we`re moving is primarily commercial product that would enter the commercial system and be distributed through financial business transactions between hospitals and these distributors.

REPORTER: But just to clarify, that explains why states say they are bidding like eBay because the supplies are going to the private sector and they have to go there.

POLOWCZYK: That`s normally how things work, right? So I`m not here to disrupt a supply chain.

(Am thankful did not have to call Pence a weasel, his dialogue and manner, did that for himself)

.
Wonder if that is how

The casket makers

Will cash in or if

They’ll be competing

With bulldozers

Digging mass graves

Which is really

Capitalism @ its finest

Well…..certainly nothing

To sneeze at

 

.
Yes, my soul is

Much darker

Than it “should” be

Actually though, according

To this blog’s title and subtitle

“Looking at the world through a windshield”

The observations are from

“The loose nut behind the wheel”

In other words I didn’t make this stuff up

I am merely an observer

Making observations

Thanks for stopping by
