Forum Post: "shithole countries" ...identify**it**

This content is user submitted and not an official statement

In his funny and ironical view of us and them Trump has identified immigration from "shithole nations" as the problem. What are the seeds of violence? Cause that is probably part of it?...or failing infrastructure...bad hospitals and schools, crime, filth hunger...we all do get that much. Yes we know shit. But... Perhaps colonization and corruption by hmm the largest outsiders: multinational aka non resident conglomerates Wallstreet corporations and shareholders has something to do with it? Or perhaps desperation and the failure of trickle down to provide opportunity and self reliance for instance when non resident multinational conglomerate corporations pay off governments with bribery and dominate markets and buy up all the land and real estate to benefit only themselves renting water and soon air back to us at the induced scarcity prices and all that shit piss and stacked feudal corruption. I rather think the real "takeover" was silent...when we lost anti trust and lobbying seeded implants from every psycopathic runaway hedgefund into the fabric of our governments...who are these men and women?... Who are they who set these conditions upon us? Where do they originate from...where do they reside now? Who are the one percent who rule us? They sit on invisible thrones and there is no wall large enough to keep them at bay.

So yes Tump-inia there is a shitty clause...Yes if we must admit some countries are indeed shitholes as quoted by Trump I think it is more than fair to identify the ingredients of that bitter cake.

And also to ask the question America are we also headed there? (Shitesville)

Ultimately it is not the peoples of corrupt countries who make a country...it is the multinational corpiration and ceo running it. They are not shy to boast about that power either. Survival of the fittest in a country with hoarded resources, and misappropriate dispertion of tax funds from the peoples pockets... creates desperation, violence, inequity, instability, and well some rather shitty conditions. The new colonization is corporate colonization and it is the same old story the rich get richer the poor stay poor. And when they get poor enough and desperate enough we will see desperate measures. Also inequity breeds hate. As any toddler will demonstrate. We are hard wired to react to it.

So from one shithole country to yours...let's give our corrupt leaders their big deserved thanks. Thanks for shit-ifying things Dear Leaders. We give you the thanks.

And it is those that you outline, who are making countries into shitholes, and they want to make (and are making progress at it) the USA into a shithole!

We can probably all agree upon there being many "shithole" countries around the world, by no means as Trump had implied of them being limited only to "Haiti" and "Africa."

Everyone is entitled to have a nationality and a champion. This is why I don't condemn Nationalism outright. I think that Patriotism, "Whether my country is right or wrong, it is right!" is the actual problem. Here is some valuable information regarding Patriotism that is particularly appropriate for it to be taught in our Adult Daycare Center we are running on the Potomac.

The scums had invented a label "Globalization" and then blamed the ill effects of their nefarious doings to "Globalization." Who caused all the shit? The scums!

[-] 4 points by elf3 (3900) 2 months ago

The most Patriotic thing one can do is to question government/ leadership/ rule of law. Too often I hear people say outloud that they are Patriotic because they stand with their leaders. A large section of society has Patriotism all wrong.

Globalization is the Astro term created in order to push/ propagandize for the corporate oligarchy MNC to have free reign over every country and a unified corporate rule of law that allows them special rights to trample the people of EVERY nation uniformly as they please.

Absolutely - somehow they align with the leadership instead of with the ideals the country was founded on and the leadership has no honor and could care less about the ideals that made the USA a place of hope - the ideals are what should be fought for by real patriots! and those who only give lip service have no business being leaders!

"We are the children" who did "start giving" more than "just you and me" Mikey Jobs away. Are you now better off in the House of Black and White more than thirty-two years later since the Raygun Revolution? Or are you still "impotent and obsolete," now being well past the "end of the century," in protecting the civilian population?

A male African slave was counted as 3/5 of a white man and all women were counted as zeros in the representation through the House of Representatives and thence the Electoral College. Slavery has consequences. Who will save us now? Only Time.

[-] 3 points by elf3 (3900) 5 months ago

I feel the corrupt corporate driven DNC was responsible for Trump. Dems or at least the regular people wanted Bernie. The immoral and criminal actions of the corrupt corporate DNC machine forced this on us. And we are better off or will be because with Trump comes a revolution and recognition of the violations of the social contract. While with Hillary the illusion would have been enough to keep the corporate oligarchy in place. Real meaningful change won't come without a wake up call. Real change hurts and is never easy...first come the painful lessons and consequences of thinking government looks after itself. And if you think that is Hillary take a look at her 6 years serving on the board of Walmart...then Nafta while Bill and she sat in the oval office...they chose to benefit the mighty conglomerate and outsourcing over union jobs and people. So yes it is tough to watch but for me tougher to watch status quo under the illusion of beneficial change including the idea women are equal. So relax and let Trump do our job. Real change is coming after this asshole wrecking ball finishes with things . Just look at the strong womens' movement we have seen in ages. Next maybe... Move to Amend. Banning lobbying and enforcing anti trust..fixing those hackable Diebold voting machines...a free press...meaningful good paying labor. Equity. I'm so glad honestly that we no longer have to work so hard at getting all of this out in front of people. Nature is taking care of things now and seriously...can't you breathe easier watching it all implode on itself?

(yawnnnn - stupid ankle biter) So sad to see you come all unhinged/unglued that you can NOT understand that sHillary (the candidate you love to tongue the anus of) is every bit as unfit for the office of president as is Drumpf!

You are so distraught (actually frothing at the mouth) by the criminal-n-chief's admin that you totally miss the fact that HE "is" killing the GOP all across this nation. The GOP is finally being recognized by their own public (other than the base of supremacists) as being totally toxic to the general population and are beginning to vote them out of office in deep red states!

You grieve over the loss sHillary suffered! sHillary who would just have continued the republican attack on the poor and working poor (middle class) to cater to herself and the other wealthy few in the same manner as the GOP (only not nearly as openly insane greedy and hateful as the current president & admin) = continuing the fall of the middle class and all of our civilization!

Bernie would have been the best candidate but he was screwed by the DNC !

So now we deal with chaos and destruction of the Drumpf presidency and administration as well as with the GOP that is in office - until the public can vote them ALL out of office - IF the Public will unite to do so! And Drumpf his administration & the GOP in office are giving clear justification to the Public as to why they need to be removed from office!

Lending to the poor is now at risk. As if threats to Medicaid weren't enough.

"Trump may weaken 'outdated' rules that force banks to lend to the poor"

I haven't even read that article or watched the video but just the headline alone caught my eye. If you live in the wrong neighborhood, a "shithole" neighborhood, evidently, and even if you have excellent credit, you may have trouble getting a loan.

So, good luck when wages aren't enough to sustain you. Most Americans live on their meager wages plus DEBT.

The current stock market rise is WAGE THEFT. Period.

The one percent who rule us are a bunch of greedy psychopaths who don't care if people die and suffer. Life in America has become about suffering.

The only thing that gives me hope is that perhaps if Americans suffer enough they will take off their blinders of nationalist pride and face the fact that their government has not been protecting their General Welfare for the past 40 years and get out in the street together.

The President of the USA referring to other countries as shit-hole countries - gosh I might agree - but to say so is so wrong if one wants to help make those countries better (don't ya think) - I mean what in the hell type of diplomacy and outreach is that? Who has helped make them shit-hole countries to begin with?

[-] 1 points by elf3 (3900) 5 months ago

Absolutely ...but more in the context with which he used it in reference to immigration. Because if we are honest some countries are absolutely shitholes and we can say yeah I don't have a desire to go there and actually probably the people there would like to get out too. And while lacking tact, diplomacy, etc etc. if we argue that point rather than the conditions which made them shitty then we are also guilty of gaslighting on the left as well as failing to prevent it in America. So yes they are shitty. And my point is exactly as you stated...why are they shitty? What causes a country to be that way. His point is skin color or ethnicity...which is scapegoating, racist, supremacy and on and on. While yes we are all responsible for our own behavior the conditiins in which we live and survive absolutely effect people's nature. In example most narcissists like Trump have severe childhood trauma which sets about this kind of extreme self preservation to the exclusion of normal rational or empathetic responses. In a corrupt economy where conditions become desperate and survival of the fittest mantras and unfeeling corporations rule...it is going to obviously bring out some terrible behavior especially in anyone prone to a lack of empathy. The people reflect back the conditions their government is creating. When the conditions stop allowing for empathy or humanism as we are now seeing in America...citizen employees, people as numbers and dollar signs hegde fund rule we are naturally going to see society and behavior in general decline as self preservation becomes necessity and surviving by whatever means becomes a norm. I'm not saying that is ever ok...it is an explanation. And of course this isn't everyone. But the best way if you are trying to have a nice country where people aren't in this kind of mode and bad behaviors are kept in check...than we must have an equitable society. Equity is the most important factor in maintaining a comfortable balance and non shitty society. Keeping corruption in check is key. Keeping money out of politics, free press, balanced government and breaking down monopolies. Conglomerated wealth is a disaster a subsidiary and shared hedge fund by any other name is still a monopoly. The people must have control over their resources...the second you privatize and allow a big giant monopoly to collect and sell it back to the citizenry and this includes land and real estate, water, fundamentals of survival...the conditions become ripe to rot.

And after they wreck the conditiins those in power trap themselves in a guilded cage. The masses always eventually break down the walls. And especially in America. We are used to a standard of equality. No matter how slowly they try to boil away our sense of freedom and equity...we won't stand for it. The banksters Wallstreet and corruot politicians are on their way out. The steam is building. And the lid won't hold.

Y are some country's considered shitholes? Well you hit on it a couple of times. They are shitholes oft times due to the wealthy in those countries as well as foreign corporations that come in and ruin the place. Then instead of booting out those corporations or getting them under control the corrupt governments will protect them (for monetary consideration) with their police and any armies they might have and allow the corporations to hire and bring in mercenaries.

But what amounts to (multi-national) corporate misrule is NEVER spoken about (that would be bad for business). Instead it is all blamed on the suffering populations!

[-] 1 points by elf3 (3900) 5 months ago

Exactly and the fact that many of them happen to be resource rich societies with non white populations says a lot about history and how those in power viewed it as fine to steal from people they viewed as less equal and less human. Or perhaps they dehumanized them in order to get away with stealing those resources. Either way... The fact that it is still going on...says a lot about who we still are now. "Take care of your character for it becomes you". I'm glad we are fighting back. The Occupy movement is so important...we can't let it slip away.

And I would add labor is a type of resource...corporations are stealing it for a pittance of their profits. And they have become so conglomerated really goods are being sold back to us by the same entities ...so really we all work now for the company store.

And the only way to keep things calm in an unequitable society is by militant force and authoritarian rule. So you see that in those places too...like China. Lots of beating killing imprisonment labor camps...scary kind of governmenting. Instead of working on equity...they start beating people. It is soooo shitty.
