if yer rich, yer more important.
Terror tip for rich
E-mails warned bigs of city attack

"I have just received a most disturbing call from one of my oldest friends from growing up in Washington," one E-mail began. "He called with a very specific caution to not enter or use the New York City subway system from Oct. 7 through 10th."

A second E-mail sounded a similar ominous tone: "As some of you know my father works for Homeland Security, at a very high position and receives security briefings on a daily basis.

"The only information that I can pass on is that everyone should at all costs not ride the subway for the next two weeks in major areas of NYC."

One of the E-mails was dated Oct. 3 with a 6:05 p.m. time stamp, about 90 minutes before Bloomberg was fully briefed on the threat, a police source said.

I like throwing phrases into the google search engine to see what shows up... Here's one:
Google search = "the reich are more important than the poor"

It led me to this blog entry on last year's presidential debates:
Utopian Hell - The Debate
Bush also keeps talking about how hard his job is. If I were a manager, and an employee came to me telling me that their job was hard, I’d think that maybe they weren’t the person for the job. Perhaps they can’t handle the pressure they’re under. It’s too difficult for them. Time to shift the weight.

He also keeps talking about sending mixed messages, and whether or not we send the appropriate messages to the world.

“I’m not going to make decisions that I think are wrong for America.” – Bush
“You can not lead if you send mixed messages.” – Bush
“What I won’t do is change my core values.” – Bush

So let’s examine the messages he’s sent to Americans:

Outsourcing is okay.
Lying is alright if you’ve got better spin doctors.
Torture is okay if you’re the good guy.
The rich are more important than the poor.
People who don’t have health care don’t deserve health care.
Offensive is better than defensive.
Women deserve no rights.
Marriage is the only way.
Gays deserve no rights.

Great message to send, and if these represent the president’s ‘core values’, then there is no reason this man should remain in office.

Why is he in office? Are rich people more important than poor, are white people better than black, are we actually imprisoned in concentration camps called cities, and why is the counterculture unable to unclutter the pathway of power?

Channel Null addresses this very question in the article Bullet Pathways and Branching Histories:
In fact, I'd suggest that the counterculture works more like a symbiote of the mainstream than an occulted current. Tim Leary was close friends with G. Gordon Liddy when they started "touring the country as ex-cons debating the soul of America" ; Captain Al "Tripps" Hubbard mined uranium and distributed LSD. To look at this in a sane way, try looking at discrete units of time, or discrete causal chains. The CIA-Oil-Narco-Pedo Cabal, under Bush I as CIA director, had been working toward something. Seeing it as a current allows us to trace its history backward, to find out what path it took before it collided into the convergent narrative. It tipped its invisible hand during the JFK assassination; now, we can stand to gain by looking back at the history of this current, to make more accurate predictions about where it will next crash into convergence, our consensus reality history.

We're struggling under the weight of a corporate republic, and there's not a damn thing we can do about it except try to shift out from under the burden.
