A Letter to the American Ruling Class


Dear…

Press Secretary Carney, President Obama,Vice President Biden, Chief Justice Roberts, Speaker Boehner, and every CEO investing inside (or outside) this one of a kind country,

Do you really think outsourcing is the answer? Here’s what will happen in the Middle East if  we stop vesting so much economic interest in it and let the true voice of the Arabic people develop:

-after centuries, the Arab world won’t be sucking the tit of the foreign market

The world moneymakers….or perhaps moneytakers? (bad joke)

-there will be more jobs for the educated youth and people like this man. Remember him? 

Mohamed Bouazizi se inmola y enciende la llama de las protestas globales

It all started with the martyrdom of street vendor Mohamed Bouazizi. His last words before igniting himself sound a lot like the complaints of the unemployed here in the US: “How do you expect me to make a living?”

-no more regimes of dictators or extra $ for them to wipe their asses with

Gaddafi-the-dictator

Why so militant?

-how about we put an end to senseless acts of yes, TERRORISM, under false pretense?

American terrorist

The Arabic perception of a terrorist.

-more public means of communication, openness to public opinion and criticism

….hey wait a second, don’t we need to fix these problems right here at home?

I’m sorry, did I say earlier that the US is one of a kind? Although we’ve put a lot at stake by globalizing as we please, there’s one good thing that’s come out of it: we’ve gotten an inside look into parts of the world that not many Americans have been to or are familiar with. I’ve never met an American who enjoys sexual and toilet humor as the foreign exchange student from Dubai who lives down the hall. Another student who’s native to Syria was actually the first to show me a Harlem Shake video! (Talk about globalization!) Hey, I guess we’re not so different from the Arab World as the big, scary, propaganda says we are.

Peace, Love, and Prosperity,

A Concerned Human Being

    “after centuries, the Arab world won’t be sucking the tit of the foreign market”

    It is nearly 2015, current economic growth and prosperity require foreign trade. It is easy to blame the US for the hardships of other countries, ultimately it is down to each individual and the businesses as well as the diplomats. The “Arab World” is being royal screwed by corrupt politicians and police, lack of appropriate funding to ensure the welfare of her people, and very few rights with which to force change without committing mass suicide. Not America’s fault, the pick-pockets are running the Arab governments, they would still be crooks, with or without American involvement.
