Let’s Talk About Stoncks

Our Latest #becausefuckyouthatswhy to the System and why it’s Awesome

You don’t have to understand the stock market to comprehend what is going on here. Everybody’s jumping on the “Eat the Rich” bandwagon lately, right? Right. Me too. But why are we attacking the stock market? Isn’t that what holds up our economy by allowing corporations to grow big and gain an advantage over competitors? Yes, that is exactly why we’re doing it. Because it props up a broken system. It is a system that has served only to keep the rich rich and the poor poor. The issue, as it stands before us today, is that the imbalance of wealth in this country is greater than it has been since the French Revolution, and people haven’t been this poor in general since The Great Depression. We are attacking the problem from the inside out, ripping at the underbelly of The Beast to spill its vital organs and take them for our own. So the question is, how hungry are you, really? I am personally ravenous.

“I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child well nursed, is, at a year old, a most delicious nourishing and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricasie, or a ragoust.”

Jonathan Swift, A Modest proposal

Today we are facing a trifecta of crises, being health, economic, and political (let’s not pretend everything is okay now just because January 6th is over). So today, the small folk are taking the economic crisis by the balls and simultaneously stoking the fires of the barbeque pit for our feast. In the U.S., there are three men who own as much wealth in billions as the entire bottom half of the American population. Let that sink in. While the Covid-19 pandemic has raged and ravaged throughout the world, billionaires are getting fatter behind their gilded gates. They are actually profiting from the ineffectual response policies rolled out by the American government. Between March 18, 2020, and January 18, 2021, U.S. billionaires saw an increase of $1.138 trillion, or a whopping 39% of the combined wealth (inequality.org). In one year. One year.

One. Year.

“The United States exhibits wider disparities of wealth between rich and poor than any other major developed nation.”


How have your finances fared over the last year? Sure, we all (hopefully) received the stimulus checks issued by the government in the last 11 months or so, but was it enough to keep your rent paid? Lights on? Food on the table? Is anyone else out there scraping by on what little you can get from the food banks right now? I know I am. How many have lost their jobs, cars, or homes? How many have had to relinquish valuable assets to stay afloat? How many of us have suffered? So why not storm the gates of the billionaires’ estates or the federal reserve headquarters or the United States Capital building (Jesus Christ, you idiotic insurrectionist traitors! Yeah, we’re still fuming about that!)

We don’t do it because it wouldn’t do any good. The problem is too big, too institutionalized. It is too deeply rooted in our very essence as a country, like a brain tumor that just can’t be excised. Money has ruled our lives and indeed our very world since about 5000 b.c. (thought.com). Instead, we are all buying up the cheap “stoncks” The group of day traders who banded together to drive up the price of Gamestop stock and succeeded in costing the Big Guys about $5 billion only signaled the beginning of a movement that nearly every Little Guy can grab on to. And Little Guys are grabbing on left and right. Our primal instincts are kicking in at last. It’s our way of saying “Because Fuck You, That’s Why!” to those who are growing fatter off of our suffering, and it’s working.

To those of us who have taken up the battle cry, I say “Do not stop now, do not look back. No mercy, no surrender!” We cannot let the system fuck us out of our very survival. We gotta win this one. We are millions and they are few. They wanted unity and they got it, baby! Here we are; a wall of pissed off, feral, and frankly rabid citizens in insurmountable numbers against a few mewling hedge fund managers (taste their tears, aren’t they delicious?). We are ready and willing to cut the head off and drink the blood straight from the source. We have beaten the giants at their own game, winning our first battle in history, thanks to millennials, gen z, and the like $14 they each had in their pockets. Let’s win another. And another. And another until we can finally feed our families again.

When any type of system breaks down, whether it be the economy or the plumbing in your home, you fix it. You have to fix it, otherwise, worse things will come. You cannot escape the consequences. Then again, if the transmission in your car goes out, it’s probably easier and cheaper to just buy another car. Our transmission has definitely gone out. Capitalism is a stuck pig at this point, bleeding out billions into the streets. The attack on Wall Street may not deal the fatal blow, but it is coming. The hammer will fall and we will eat the rich.

Until next time,
