Privatization: A fancy new term for “Carpetbagger”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jane Stillwater @ 11:02 am

I’m currently down here in Mexico City. It is a fabulous paradise for tourists and yet I seem to have the entire city practically all to myself. There are almost no American tourists clogging up all the awesome churches, museums, ruins, monuments and plazas down here. Plus there are no drug wars down in Mexico City either. Those rumors are false. It’s just me, having the time of my life.

Hell, Mexico City is hecka lot safer than Washington DC.

I’m not sure if the newspapers down here lie to their readers as much as the Washington Post lies to us. Can’t really tell. My Spanish isn’t all that good. “Tacos” and “enchiladas” are just about the extent of my vocabulary.

And speaking of vocabulary, I just went to the beautifully-ornate and regal central post office building down here and, no, Mexico hasn’t “privatized” it yet — unlike in America where our post offices have generally been sold off cheaply to the lowest bidder, as have our banks, our national parks, our military, our schools and God knows what all else. Even our religions have been “privatized”.

So I looked up the meaning of “privatization” in the dictionary and the word “carpetbagger” instantly leapt off the page.

It doesn’t take an expert on linguistics to predict that when the RepubliDems get done with their carpetbagging in Washington, within the next ten years or so America will have nothing left to sell or steal. But, hey, you can always go visit Mexico City.

PS: I just started reading “The Devil’s Chessboard,” a biography of CIA spymaster Allen Dulles. It is a horror story. “Don’t open that door! Don’t shower alone!” The man was as evil is Hitler — and twice as sketchy.

Now I’m gonna have nightmares for a month. So much for light vacation reading. The only good thing about this book is that it mentions my hero Peter Dale Scott in the preface as one of its sources.

And all those lies and screams and chain saws and slashings and horrors started by Allen Dulles during the Eisenhower administration still continue to this day — in places like Afghanistan, Honduras, Ukraine, Washington DC, Syria and, yes, even in Sinaloa.


Stop Wall Street and War Street from destroying our world! And while you’re at it, please buy my books!
