Some Workers Can Get Away With Anything

Employees get fired for just about anything. Meanwhile, certain members of the political entertainment elite get away with just about everything. I’ve gotten fired for relatively trivial offenses. Maybe I should have tried to do the truly disgusting stuff that people like Harvey Weinstein stand accused of instead. They got away with it for years.

  1. You’re doing it wrong, Ted.

    You need to go on TV and make a tearful confession while saying that you rededicated your life to Jebus. You need to have your photogenic trophy wife standing beside you with a resolute expression on her face, while your adorable blond children gaze at you adoringly.

    Then ask for donations.

  2. It’s called a double standard.

    That sly bastard John Adams argued against a Bill of Rights, saying that without a monarchy it would be unnecessary (all the while arguing FOR a monarchy) and to say that the People need their rights protected from the People is an absurdity.

    The government has long operated as agents of the corporations. The big difference with Trump is that he cut out the middleman-agents in order to directly serve America’s real sovereigns as one of their own.

    Mussolini called it corporatism.

    On the whole I am optimistic about Trump because he is potentially giving people a rude awakening from the trance induced by both parties that the government is on the side of the natural persons, and not the artificial persons that are the corporations.
