Fuck You Pay Us

DISCLAIMER: Don’t read this if you want to actually want to see the movie and care if I  used dialog from the movie.

I sat through another movie drama crime sort of thriller comedy ( I don’t know, you figure it out) last night called “Killing Them Softly”. So, I’m in the last 60 seconds of the movie and through all of this fiat motivated mobster foreplay, I’m like…finally the climax! We have the supposed lesser of two evils, (Obama) giving his 2008 election speech “…to reclaim the American dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth, that, out of many, we are one… ” and this hitman (Brad Pitt) who is totally logical throughout the movie is NOT BUYING IT while at the same time he is being told he did not get paid what he was expecting. Im relating to this hitman right now and all I could hear in my head was  Yasin Bey s,

War [and crime] is a global economic phenomenon…

Go get my money man
Go get my money man

Fuck you, pay me
Fuck you, pay me
Fuck you, pay me
Fuck you, pay me
Fuck you, pay me
Fuck you, pay me
Fuck you, pay me
Fuck you, pay me”

Seriously though, I related to the hitman on some classic STOP PLAYING ideology because what he said NEXT after hearing Obama’s speech was beautiful to my ears…

Driver, “You hear that line? Line’s for you.”
Hitman, “Don’t make me laugh. One people. It’s a myth created by Thomas Jefferson. ”
Driver, ” Oh, so now you’re going to have a go at Jefferson, huh? ”
Hitman, “My friend, Thomas Jefferson is an American saint because he wrote the words ‘All men are created equal’, words he clearly didn’t believe since he allowed his own children to live in slavery. He’s a rich wine snob who’s sick of paying taxes to the Brits. So, yeah, he writes some lovely words and aroused the rabble and they went and died for those words while he sat back and drank his wine and fucked his slave girl. This guy wants to tell me we’re living in a community? Don’t make me laugh. I’m living in America, and in America you’re on your own. America’s not a country. It’s just a business. Now fuckin’ pay me. “

All of this had me thinking…so many of us really believe in America. So many of us went out and actually voted for this illusion…Some of us even went harder on the last two elections because the candidate looks like a brother and gave  hope…Damn this puppet even had me hoping for a few seconds, lol. Then I come back to my senses and I realize that to my knowledge the general operation and maintenance of the executive, legislative, and judicial machinery really does not get updates like a cell phone or a computer hardware. They simply just change the cover and we “vote” for it every time.

I thought even more about how the whole plot was fiat driven…just like the U.S. corporation. This is what we the people need to be focused on but in a healthy responsible cooperative economics kind of way. Im like damn…even the mobsters had a tight system (as violent and unnatural as it was it worked because they had the finance to back themselves up..they paid each other instead of McDonalds, Nike, and weaves and things….I’m just saying…we don’t have to be the mob but we could at least be teachers in our own schools and bankers in our own lending institutions.

I don’t know maybe I am just a dreamer but I related a lot to the hitman in this movie. I feel like I was called to hit all those people/ entities in their pockets who feed off this illusion by engaging our people in ways that actually effect change. It takes finance to uplift a nation so really…eff you pay us.
