Bird With Two Right Wings
written by Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Bird With Two Right Wings
— Lawrence Ferlinghetti
And now our government
a bird with two right wings
flies on from zone to zone
while we go on having our little fun & games
at each election
as if it really mattered who the pilot is
of Air Force One
(They're interchangeable, stupid!)
While this bird with two right wings
flies right on with its corporate flight crew
And this year its the Great Movie Cowboy in the cockpit
And next year its the great Bush pilot
And now its the Chameleon Kid
and he keeps changing the logo on his captains cap
and now its a donkey and now an elephant
and now some kind of donkephant
And now we recognize two of the crew
who took out a contract on America
and one is a certain gringo wretch
who's busy monkeywrenching
crucial parts of the engine
and its life-support systems
and they got a big fat hose
to siphon off the fuel to privatized tanks
And all the while we just sit there
in the passenger seats
without parachutes
listening to all the news that's fit to air
over the one-way PA system
about how the contract on America
is really good for us etcetera
As all the while the plane lumbers on
into its postmodern
manifest destiny

Well yes Fine that is very true.
It's often said they are just the flip side on the same coin and that the difference between them is less than the thickness of one thin dime.
So understanding and identifying what power is and how it is used either for us or against us is of vital importance now.

Following the money:

On trying to understand how the INSTITUTIONAL POWER shapes our thoughts and action.
How We Stay Blind to the Story of Power

:10500: the question is....are the democrats actually oppsed to trump ??????
That's a good point. There are definitely factions that are but there are factions who are more than willing to work with anyone who is putting money in their pocket. A lot of these people, Like Elizabeth Warren pointed out with Bloomberg, are willing to cross the party fence. Trump did it too. He was a democrat. So I would say the more progressive a person is the more they hate Trump and love Bernie. The more money people have the less (imho) they tend to consider morality and ethics in politics. I think they tend to separate the two just like the separation between church and state.
