How the Rich and Powerful Inherit the Earth

The more money you have in the bank, the more powerful you are. That’s been the case since we human beings have adopted a monetary system for purchasing what we want, rather than just clubbing each other over the head, and then stealing what we want.

Powerful people get what they want, when they want it.

Just ask the executives of a Toronto, ON., Canada-based hospital who somehow managed to “acquire” their H1N1 Swine Flu shots long before anyone else. Or the numerous sports celebrities in basketball, hockey, even baseball – which isn’t even in season – all who got their vaccines first. There are countless politicians, movie stars, and business executives who probably got their H1N1 Flu shots before us common folks.

Despite the shortages in some parts of the world – thanks to poor planning by all levels of governments – the rich and powerful have jumped the line, getting their medications first. Because we all know the world just can’t go on without professional athletes, movie stars, and ass kissing politicians.

The world would continue without ‘em?

Must be the money, the power, and the prestige. No, it’s just that the money gives these elite people the power to buy whatever they want, whenever they want it.

Even government regulators can’t stop these individuals. They make rules and regulations; and have law enforcement types wearing intimidating bullet-proof outfits armed to the teeth fending off anyone who tries to jump the line.

But if you are lucky enough to have enough money, you don’t even have to stand in line – the doctor will be more than happy to make the house call and personally serve your every need.

“Oh I’m sorry, did that hurt? Here – take this ‘lolly’ – it’ll make you feel better.”
When was the last time your doctor made a house call, and offered you a lollypop candy as a distraction from the pain of a common medical procedure?

Nice to know that if the pandemic of H1N1 Swine Flu does decimate much of the world’s population, at least we’ll have the rich and powerful to re-populate and rebuild the planet.

Just think, although your families genetic line could be wiped off the planet, Donald Trump’s would replace it. Imagine a world where everyone has bad hair, and likes to yell “you’re fired!”

Don’t like the Donald? Maybe Paris Hilton is more to your liking – with her massive brain power under that blonde bimbo exterior, the human race is sure to succeed.

Don’t think the world would survive on a diet of gossip, partying, and making really bad movies?

Don’t worry if you don’t survive the H1N1 Swine Flu pandemic because some famous basketball player got your flu shot instead of you, you won’t miss much.
You can’t dribble away the world’s problems with a jump shot.
