MERE OBJECTS FOR THE LEGITIMACY OF OTHERS – UPDATED

This follow-up to the previous topic MERE OBJECTS FOR THE LEGITIMACY OF OTHERS focuses on how those of the “Society” is supported and upheld in their fictitious identities, namely by advertising. Such ads are symbolically either representation of the types of establishments used by the individuals whose identity is being stolen (see the series of posts on the subject FREQUENTING THE PAST ESTABLISHMENTS AS A MARK OF LEGITIMACY), or other ads carefully place the name of an impostor in the ad for the appearance of legitimacy for such frauds hiding in the identity of another. Advertising has apparently been co-opted by the “Society” as means to their end, which is repetition leads to acceptance and acceptance equates to legitimacy, (see the post WHY DO “VIRTUAL”SOCIETY TYPES RELY ON SOFT TOUCH ADVERTISING?). In examining the subject matter for sometime, I have formed the opinion personally that any industry, business, occupation etc., which relies heavily on or have come to symbolize senseless mass advertising is a “haven” for the “Society” types. What types of businesses, occupations, etc. have evolved into seemingly “graveyards” for absurdity? We are all too familiar with the used car and some manufacturer’s type sales ads, which are some of the most outrageous, with their 1st ever sales event every other week, or the most insulting, we are here to save you money, a lot of money. Also joining the used car dealers etc. and becoming ever more notorious offenders are, insurance and election/re-election political advertising. The following “snapshot” is given in example:
·         Insurance companies have joined the ranks of those that make the most ridiculous claims and they are accepted because market types who study human behavior have told product advertisers, no matter how senseless it is, if its repeated often enough, it will become accepted as “normal”. For example, if any “real” consideration is given to how silly the concept of an annoying mascot running around with a phony accent stating that it is saving people money on car insurance, is, it wouldn’t be given the time of day. However, because the “snake oil” salesperson in this case is remade into an apparently “harmless” mascot, it is accepted as “normal” and the public “swallows” the hoax and the perpetrators are ginning all the way to financial “ecstasy”.
·          Political ads are also notorious for the characterizing of the opponent into a seemingly monstrous individual, no matter how sincere. As a result, politics has become a “swarming” ground for its own form of “snake oil” sales representatives. As long as they can “sell” the public on insincere claims made to appear to be credible, they are accepted as legitimate no matter how phony or “hollow” they are, (see the post PERSISTENCE OF THOSE WITHOUT SOCIAL ETHICS). Ever since television changed the political process during the Nixon-Kennedy debates, it has become more essential to rely on “made for television” candidates, even if they are as “hollow” as a straw. As long as they are made “picture-perfect” for television no matter if they are propped up more pylons than are needed to support most of this Country’s bridges behind the scenes; as long as their “made for television” (public) appearance gives a look of credibility, just as the annoying mascot with the phony accent is, the masquerading that has become politics today goes on its present course and will only get worse.
WHAT DOES THIS SAY ABOUT THE SOCIETY AT LARGE, WHEN WE HAVE
BECOME SO SUPERFICIAL THAT PHONIES (OR MAYBE PEONIES) CAN
PRETEND TO BE LEADERS WITH “FAMILIES” (IN SOME CASES, AS BEST
TYPIFIED BY THE MOVIE “DAVE”) AND THE REMAKING OF THE “SNAKE OIL
SALES REP INTO A “HARMLESS” MASCOT, CAN’T BE REALIZED BY ANYONE
OUTSIDE THE “SOCIETY” FOR WHAT IT (THEY) TRULY IS (ARE)?

It must be close to election time, because strange developments start to occur, mail delays, meaningless credit card offers, and my son who is searching for a replacement vehicle was called in unexpectedly on his only day off this week for a very large order in his department. My recommendation to him is to stay away from any vehicle with a name, which sounds like “Bored” vehicle, but it’s his decision. I’m waiting for the other “shoe” to drop before Election Day, because the election (or re-election) of some (“Society’s” type), who are used to playing "god" in the lives of others may be dependent on it (whatever it “is”, “is”).

Dejon has made his decision about a replacement vehicle, he chose a late model (2010) brown Chevy Malibu. He placed a deposit on it on 11/14/2012 and will pick it up in two weeks. Maybe he did listen to my recommendation after all!

The photo below (on COMMENTS Page), is a depiction of the vehicle, which Dejon is purchasing this upcoming week only the color is brown instead of RED!

They are those who are living in an altered version of reality that what’s factual as depicted in comment # 2 from 11/21/2012 on the COMMENTS Page. For those types who made the choice to live in such existences, targeting me either directly or indirectly (through my son) is not the answer. As previously stated on this Blog’s pages (see comment # 2 from 11/22/2012 on the COMMENTS Page), it’s never too late to live in the “REAL” world instead of in a fantasy existence based on identity crutches, phony accounts, and an ancestry based on mail fraud.

Knowing how unusual occurrrences (or "coincidences") just happen to develop at the opportune time to impact those whom "Society's" types are targeting; is what led me to include the statement on the photo in comment (# 2 from today 11/24/2012) regarding "last minute surprises" and hoping that the transaction and other factors in his daily routine will go smoothly for my son!

What is this I read in an old edition of the WSJ from 7/28/2011, the omnipotent Mogul WRONG ON TAXES? How could this be, he never makes mistakes when he in his alter ego as “Emperor of Credentials “confers” degrees on “Society’s” types in his perpetual wealth-generating schemes so how could he be wrong on taxes? Well as it turn out the Omnipotent Mogul is doing “fuzzy” math with his higher tax talk on the wealthy. The biggest point of contention the article writer had with this Mogul is that corporations pay up to 35% tax on their profits before a dime is passed on to shareholders. In turn the “real” rate on corporate income paid to individuals through capital gains and dividends is not in reality 15% but closer to 45% once the tax on corporate profits is added in. Furthermore, if this dividend tax rises to 20% from 15% then the total tax paid to shareholders would be in turn closer to 50% (excluding state and local taxes). As the article author concluded, the tax system is already far too reliant on the wealthy to pay the government’s bills in terms of the share of all income taxes paid and the effective tax rate on this group (millionaires and billionaires) much higher, not lower, than any other income category. “The best way to balance the budget is for the economy to produce a lot more “American” success stories like” this Mogul. Why does this Mogul advocate such insincere solutions? In reality, how can such successes materialize when this omnipotent Mogul is in everyone’s affairs (playing god), by determining who is worthy of their own identities, as well as whom credentials should be conferred in his attempt to be sure that he is ensured of perpetual wealth generation and ultimately who is worthy of “surviving” (or in effect living) if it impact his ability to generate wealth at the expense of those whose rights he tramples on along the way, by teaching his “Society’s” types to take from others no matter how violent the methods employed as long as he receives his kickbacks they can be assured that their unethical practices will be covered up it. (I am almost positive that his business methodology was NOT learned at Columbia as he indicated where his business studies originated).
