The New On The Waterfront

unlike street thug pistoleros
cronyism out of control

Ruin and destroy in a few ways.  What do you call it when you have a government job with crooked politics and cronyism out of control, and you’re not like them so you become more of a liability to have around but they try getting you botched up to fire you but you out think them and keep your cool so you always prevail where others in the past transferred or quit. Then an evil boss who had been there almost 25 years straight out of college because he had  the big political connection, mind you a punk who never had to struggle to get a break like I did, and he decides to put you in a hazardous environment to do a procedure alone that you never had to do before and didn’t see anyone else ever doing it; figuring you won’t take his BS and quit or walkout and get fired for insubordination, and just weeks before this creep was badgering a mechanical shop manager that he hated to jam him up, but that guy resigned before things got ugly; so you  just do the job and end up almost getting killed and end up sick for years after with a long recovery; but no OSHA investigation of an industrial accident or  any accountability and it’s an environment under DEM and EPA oversight.  Politics kept the lid on it and then you end up having to fight your workers comp case yourself with a rigged system and the political machine looking to see you fail so you lose it all and have to move on to someplace other than around them and the crony capitalist project you’ve been vocally against and made suggestions to officials to preserve the environment, because the actual DEM isn’t doing jack.  So you fire the phony lawyer who will appease the system and fight it yourself with enough moxie to make sure the judge knows it will be better to allow you to succeed than to not in getting a fair settlement which others don’t want you to get; but because you make them aware of how things could get ugly for them if they push you any further and this mess ends up in the court of public opinion;  especially when a high ranking public official is about to be advanced to the highest level just before retirement, which is a much heftier pension.  All the while you wrap your head around the medical science and get one of the best lady doctors in the field to make the case medically speaking airtight!  That’s just one piece, then so many more of antagonizing, harassment, intimidation, conspiracy with even some medical people involved to trip you up more if possible.  In a way like the old classic movie “On the Waterfront” just not all the beatings or street thug pistoleros; but all white color crooked crony politics and tactics that lead to physical damage worse than a beating because of nefarious methods employed to injure.  Needless to say I went from being fairly confident in government and persons of high position to not trusting any of them not even a little.

Lot’s more to come!

MAGA

“Why MAKE AMERICA GREAT “AGAIN?” What part of our history was GREAT that you want to go back to. I’d rather see: “MAKE AMERICA GREAT, ALWAYS!” Here’s a statement from Walt Disney that was featured at the end of Meet the Robinsons.” “Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. –Walt Disney”  -courtesy of Peter Borreggine

Peter, but America isn’t a fairy tale and Walt Disney was loaded with them!  And there were periods in American History when values and morals were much better than they are now; I think that is a big part of making America Great again!  When they took prayer out of schools and no more civics class as mandatory this country started to decay in many ways and some then saw America as a roll of toilet paper or nation to take advantage of; like Rodney Dangerfield used to say “I get no respect!”  America has given so much help to other nations and peoples and then many of those same nations tell us to take a flying f-k!   I think I would like going back to Post WWII American stature and values, or even the early 60’s before all the social revolution madness started and Vietnam became a thorn in her side!

“Lawrence- that’s the first time I’ve ever heard a justification of MAGA like that. Bravo. I mean it.”

Peter, don’t get me wrong Walt Disney is an American icon and was an amazing person as well as leader in a new pioneering frontier, I love em!  But, when we get down to the nitty gritty reality of what makes a country good and right to claim the title of being a world leader, entertainment and the arts aren’t going to cut the mustard or get the job done! The world is an ever increasing dangerous place loaded with many dangerous players and enemies of the American People!  We need our Government Leadership to be exemplary along with having the “Best Military” bar none to hold onto that leadership position because we know full well there will be a host of devils out in the world looking to knock the leader off that perch!
