THEY WILL DO ANYTHING TO MATERIALIZE THEIR WISHES.-1883427231- THE TRUTH. FOR THE WORKING POOR, BEWARE THE CLOSING OF THE DOOR. SOON YOU WILL RUN OUT OF OPTIONS TO BE VIABLE. TO BE ABLE TO LIVE AND GROW INDEPENDENTLY WILL BECOME A THING OF THE PAST.

EXCERPT (c)  A REGGAE EDUCATION- THE ITROD SERIES. WHERE REGGAE LEGENDS TROD.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE- WITH NO APOLOGIES FOR THE TRUTHS.

FOR ALL THE WORKING POOR AND THOSE WHO ARE SUFFERING JOB LOSSES AT THIS TIME. I TOO- FEEL YOUR PAIN.

I HAVE SAID THIS BEFORE- FOR THE POOR MAN- LIFE CAN BE MISERABLY LONG OR TRAGICALLY SHORT.

MANY WILL READ THIS AND SHAKE THEIR HEADS, MOSTLY SAYING-WHAT THE HELL IS HE TALKING ABOUT?

BUT, THEY ALL KNOW THE TRUTH. ONE DAY, JAH WILL MAKE THEM ANSWER.

Now, let me be clear in all this-

I am not speaking  on behalf of those who are poor because they are lazy and do not want to work. Those who have found ways to become parasites on a system which already is a parasite on those who are poor and struggling.

LET ME RE-ITERATE:

I WILL SAY NOTHING IN THEIR DEFENSE. I AM ADVOCATING FOR THOSE WHO ARE POOR, WILLING AND WORKING, STRUGGLING AND SURVIVING, THE SICK, INFIRM FROM WHATEVER REAL ILLNESSES MAKES THEM UNABLE TO DO SO.

I SPEAK NOT FOR THE LAZY AND PARASITIC AMONG US.

I am not talking about those who because of sickness and other health conditions cannot work.

I am talking about those who have all the strength and physical and mental attributes to work and yet do not want to do so.Those who have developed a parasitic mentality to feed on others i.e. sucking the blood of the sufferers- corporate vultures included.

KEEP THIS IN MIND- THE BIG FISH ALWAYS EAT UP THE SMALL FISH.

Even in corporate cultures you see this mentality.

Those who speak the truth as to what they have seen and learned by working on the insides of corporations, will soon find themselves- fired-in vicious schemes by those board members who do not want their evils to be revealed- THE TRUTH.

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU SEEN THESE TRUTHS I NOW TELL YOU REVEALED IN THE OPEN?

HOW MANY WHO NOW SIT IN CORPORATE BOARD ROOMS WITH THEIR ASSOCIATES FEAR WHAT EVILS MAY BE REVEALED AMONG THEM?

ALL ACROSS THIS PLANET, THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO LOSE THEIR JOBS EVERYDAY BECAUSE THEY DARE TO SPEAK THE TRUTH, AS TO WHAT EVILS THEY DO NOT WANT TO BE PART OF.

“GOING WITH THE FLOW” NOW TAKES ON A VICIOUS SINISTER SIDE.

FOR ALL THE LAWS THEY MAY HAVE ON THE BOOKS ABOUT EMPLOYER RETALIATIONS AGAINST THOSE WHO REVEAL CERTAIN TRUTHS ABOUT UNETHICAL AND CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES OF CORPORATIONS, THESE WILL NEVER STOP THE EVILS OF THESE VULTURES.

THEY WILL DO ANYTHING TO MATERIALIZE THEIR WISHES.

I AM SURE THAT BY NOW MOST PEOPLE HAVE HEARD THE TERM- OLIGARCHY.

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT- IT MEANS THOSE WHO ARE GOVERNED BY A SMALL GROUP OF PEOPLE.-e.g. A STATE GOVERNED THIS WAY.

SOME PEOPLE ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE GAME- MONOPOLY, AND I AM SURE THEY KNOW HOW IT IS PLAYED.

I MUST INTRODUCE YOU TO THE WORD- OLIGOPOLY.

THIS BASICALLY MEANS- THOSE CORPORATE CULTURES WHICH SEEK THEIR CONTROL AND POWER IN THE MARKET PLACE ABOVE AND BEYOND ALL OTHERS.

THINGS ARE BEING STREAMLINED IN SUCH WAYS THAT ONES -FREEDOM OF CHOICE- WILL SOON BECOME-

“YOU TAKE IT AS WE GIVE IT- OR DO WITHOUT!”

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU SEEN RETAILERS ADVERTISING THEIR SALES AND- SO- CALLED “-PRICE REDUCTIONS?”
BUT YOU NEVER SEE THEM TELLING YOU ABOUT THE PRICE INCREASES.

HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ROBBED AND – NICKEL AND DIMED- AT THE CHECK OUT CASH REGISTER- ALL BECAUSE THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW TO ADD UP THEIR PURCHASES?

WHEN HAS BEEN THE LAST TIME YOU CLOSELY EXAMINED – YOUR UTILITY BILLS FOR UN-FORSEEN/ADDED CHARGES?

UNFORTUNATELY FOR SOME- AMERICA HAS A SYSTEM WHICH ENABLES SO MANY TO BECOME ALL THE CRIMINALS THAT THEY WANT TO BE.

THE FEW WHO CARE TO WORK, MUST SUFFER THE DETRIMENT FOR THOSE WHO CHOOSE NOT TO.

FOR DECADES, AMERICA HAS HAD THIS -FEED ON YOURSELF- OPPORTUNISTIC- ACCESS AND PRIVILEGED SYSTEM CATERING FOR THE FEW- WHO CONTROL THE CORPORATE MACHINERY.

BUT WE ALL KNOW THIS:- NO ONE GETS BETTER OFF, WITHOUT MAKING SOMEONE ELSE WORST OFF.

LUCKILY FOR THIS SYSTEM, IT HAS HAD A LONG LIFE- BUT FOR HOW MUCH LONGER?

FOR I SEE, AND LISTEN TO THE LAMENTATIONS OF PEOPLE IN MY CARE EVERYDAY. PEOPLE, MANY OF WHOM ARE GETTING READY TO EXPLODE.

AMERICA- STILL HAS A FEW GOOD PEOPLE LEFT- AND IT IS THEY WHO ARE KEEPING THIS COUNTRY AFLOAT.

I WILL SAY THIS AGAIN- IT IS THE RICH WHO WILL DESTROY AMERICA- NOT THE WORKING POOR.

NOW, I AM CONCERNED AS TO WHERE DOES THE POOR MAN OR THE WORKING POOR FIT/DON’T FIT IN ALL OF THIS?

EXTRAORDINARY CONCENTRATIONS OF POWER IN THE HANDS OF MEN ARE ALWAYS VERY DANGEROUS.

MY REGGAE HAS SPOKEN ABOUT THIS FOR DECADES.

THE BIG FISH CONTINUES TO EAT UP THE SMALL FISH.

BEFORE I GIVE YOU THIS IN POETRY, ALLOW ME TO ASK A FEW PERTINENT QUESTIONS. THESE QUESTIONS CONCERN THE GLOBAL CHALLENGES AND THE POOR WHO MUST SURVIVE IN THIS 21ST CENTURY.

WHEN CORPORATIONS MERGE- JOB LOSSES ALMOST ALWAYS OCCUR. IS THIS NOT TRUE?

MY P2- INTERSECT SHOWS THAT PEOPLE LOSING THEIR JOBS ARE THROWN INTO POVERTY, AND THE REALITY OF POVERTY IS THE EXCLUSION FROM OPPORTUNITY AND HAVING THE POWER TO CONTROL ONE’S LIFE.

I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT THE -TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY. THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT THE TECHNOLOGY CAN CREATE NEW OPPORTUNITIES WHICH WILL CONCENTRATE POWER IN THE HANDS OF A FEW.

LARGE CORPORATIONS POSSESS MONOPOLISTIC CONTROLLING POWERS, ESPECIALLY IN THE AREAS OF REDISTRIBUTION .

HE WHO HAS THE GOLD- RULES. THIS IS THE NEW- GOLDEN RULE.

I HAVE SAID- ACCESS DENIED.

PRIVILEGED AND POWERFUL POSITIONS SOMETIMES FLOWS WITH THE WEALTHIEST NATIONS, BUT STAYS WITH THOSE WHO HAS VAST RESOURCES IN THE MARKET PLACE.

NOW- MY POEM:          THE VULTURES, CORPORATE CULTURES


CORPORATE CULTURES ARE NOTHING, BUT VULTURES.

SOME CALL THEM OLIGOPOLY, THEY GIVE NOTHING TO

THE POOR, AND NEEDY., NOTHING TO CHARITY.

THEY MERGE, AND THEY SURGE, AS PEOPLE LOSE THEIR

JOBS AND SECURITY IN THE SHUFFLE.

THE BANKS AND THE SKANKS TRYING TO COME AS ONE.

THE AIRLINES AND DRUG STORES. THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN

ABOUT THE COMMON MAN.

THE PLAN IS ALWAYS TO HERD THE POOR MAN  , WHILE THE

STOCK HOLDERS SITS IN THE TOWERS OF THE WEALTHY

AND ELITE.

WHILE THE POOR AND JOBLESS/HOMELESS-POOR PEOPLE

WALKS- FEELING  DISPLACED IN THEIR PLIGHT,

WORRIED, TROUBLED, AND AIMLESSLY ON THE STREET.

THE WORKING POOR- LIVING FROM PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK.

TRYING TO FIND A WAY OUT, FILLED WITH ANGUISH AND

DOUBT.

THE BIG FISH ALWAYS EAT UP THE SMALL FISH IN THIS

CORRUPT AND GREED FILLED SOCIETY.

MY REGGAE SPEAKS ABOUT THIS CONTINUALLY,

IT IS WRITTEN IN JAH PROPHECY.

IT IS MY HOPE THAT THIS WILL GIVE SOME MEASURE OF HOPE FOR ALL THOSE IN THIS STRUGGLE AT A TIME WHEN THE SEASON OF DEPRESSION, SUICIDES, TAKES ITS TOLL ON THOSE WHO HAVE NOTHING TO SHARE WITH THOSE WHOM THEY LOVE.

I , RAS CARDO, PRAY FOR JAH GUIDANCE AND PROTECTION TO YOU AND YOURS KNOWING THAT THIS TOO SHALL PASS. YOU ARE NEVER ALONE.
