    Imagine a castle sitting high up on a hill. Overlooking a great country side. In that Castle ( in this story the castle is the white house ) is the KING. In this story replace the king with a President. All of laws are made and delivered to the people by the Royal Court. The royal court in this story is the Congress. The king has a group of wise men. He appoints. More like Court Jesters. Who just sit and listen to complaints. These wise men are the judges in this story. Only the Educated Writers can stand and represent before the jesters.

    You know clowns want to entertained by other clowns.

    The educated writers gather from the people and those of the royal court all complaints, and take it before the court jesters. The attorneys are the educated writers in this story. They are hard to get time with. They also only act when they feel like doing so. They perform if the king asks. They perform and practice if all of the jesters are watching, and all eyes of the citizenship is focused on them. Man can they ham it up. Some times they do this in front of the Town Criers; they are the media in this story. He ( the king ) has three sets of Soldiers one set never leaves the country-side. The king’s soldiers monitor and keep the peace. Since there are three sets of soldiers at the king’s disposal. One set of the soldiers in this story are the police. The another set of soldiers march and sail off to far off lands to conquer others, and bring the king back all the riches from the wars. These soldiers are the military in this story. The third set of soldiers are the Money Grabbers, you owe me claimers, the bean collectors. They take your house, cow, and farm, your fishing pole if you can’t pay what they claim is your fair share. Of Taxes. This set of police in this story is the IRS.

    Goods and Service aren’t produced within this castle, but the consumption is enormous.

    Certain elite groups around the country side get special treatment. Because the royals can trust these people. They won’t poison the king.

    Note: They do special favors in return for favors. They go by code names. NRA, Tobacco Industry, WHO ( World health Organization), Food and Drug Administration, Human Rights advocates like the NAACP, and the ACLU.. they look more toward the citizenship, but do nothing because it won't fly with the royal court. They don't want to loose favor, or the ear afforded them on some issues. Given another century if they still exist. They may get some rights for the disenfranchised slave group the Royals used openly abuse. :bullseye:

    Mostly they won’t alert the masses of what they heard and saw happening on the hill. They will also deliver the goods and service needed to help wage a good war. They will charge what ever they want for the goods and services. The royal family doesn’t care. Its unlimited dream land. Up on the hill. They have a life time of taxes and funds guaranteed them for ever and ever. If they want they can print more of the currency that bear. The faces of some of their greatest takers and elite that have sat on the thrown.

    The citizenship will suffer, but isn’t that their job? They never complain.

    They let the royals year after year violate them. Man, the lengths of pain they bear. It seems unlimited in what the masses can tolerate. The elite and Royals do throw down small morsels for some to remain loyal, only half are needed and the royals can sleep well at night feeling they are loved.

    The inhabitants of the castle and those under the Kings rule claim to work for the good of the people in the country-side. But the standard of living for the people is always minimal.

    Those who claim to work for the welfare of the country men and women, have all the luxury’s supplied to them. Some for a life time after they leave the employ of the king’s court. The king leaves eventually. Passing his crown if all possible to another within his own royal family. The royal family is the same political party of the sitting king. Republican / Democrat.

    To supply the soldiers, the royal court and the law makers. Gold must be given to the elite. So the peasants within the villages work hard everyday. They are taxed heavily by the royals. Living in total fear, that after they pay what is claimed, they pray something is left to help their family, run a small business or send their children off to be educated at the institutions supplied by the royal family.

    These institutions are not enough; they are not well supplied with resources needed to give each child or adult attending a decent education. Yet the peasants are forced to foot the bill for inadequacy. The people are too afraid to lie, too afraid to tell the truth. To afraid to protest.

    The royals could have them flogged and put in the Dungeons. The dungeons are the local and federal penitentiaries in this story. The majority of citizens stay silent. Hoping they don’t get violated by the local money grabbing soldiers. Or one of the local police. The local police can place you in the dungeon until a court jester finds time in his schedule to consider letting you go. Of course the educated writers dash in, like mice. This the only way for them to show their worth. Each fighting to represent the lowly peasant only when they smell blood. Blood in this story is money.

    Money taken from the citizens of the country side or from the funds gathered from the people of the country side and set aside by the royal ones. Because they don’t want the people to get upset and change this great set-up they have going.

    What a night mare. I can’t wake up... please tell me it isn’t true. If it is so.

    Why haven’t we done more to change the flow of currency, the trickle down theory? One of the elites called it that.

    He promised a tax cut, (meaning I’ll give you back today some of the riches we have taken from you over your working life time) but I hope you know and most of you won’t. You have to claim it as income. :spank: So we can take it back! Ha... Ha... ha...and on they continue. :confused: :spinn:
