      If I Were a Ruthless S.O.B

      by Tamar Yonah

      They’re not stupid and they’re not crazy. Our leaders today have a reason for their lousy leadership. And it all has to do with money and power. It’s been like this throughout the ages. Nothing has changed and we are not seeing anything new under the sun.
      Let me explain to you why I believe our leaders lie to us and persist in following policies that never bring us peace. I will do this in a mini-series, as there is much to understand and learn for one to absorb how dirty power, politics and big business can be. However, I believe that after reading these articles with the accompanying video and audio presentations, it is possible to get a glimpse into a world we don’t usually get to see.
       
      The world is not always what we have been brought up to view it as.
      As a child, the thought of becoming a Hollywood actor, a policeman or a prize fighter might have been glamorous, but the real picture was only shown to us once we entered that world.
       
      Winning a role in a movie wasn’t based on talent, it was based on if you gave your body to the casting director or the producer.
       
      Becoming a policeman didn’t turn out to be the 'upholding of the law' and having integrity. You found out who you could enforce the rule of law to, and who to leave alone because they were paying off your chief.
       
      Vying to be the best in boxing or other sports didn’t always go as planned, especially when you were told to take a dive, because that’s what ‘scar-faced Vinney’ wanted.
       
      The world is run by people who are ambitious, thick skinned and love having power. Most people abuse this power. Sadly, this is happening to most all of us around the world, whether in the USA or in Israel. Let me show you how people corrupt and manipulate others.

      If I Were a Ruthless S.O.B.
       
      If I was born in another family, one who had a ruthless father who made a fortune and had even higher ambitions on the horizon, I too would probably follow in his footsteps.  I too could build on his foundation, having my own unique 'vision' for making an empire, and leave my own imprint on the family dynasty.  How would I build this empire?  How would I expand my power, and eliminate or reduce opposition to my goals?  This is what I would do if I were a ruthless S.O.B.
      I would make sure I rubbed elbows with the 'right' people.  I would get to know them, offer to 'help them' in any way, I could, and even come through on that offer.  I'd make big contributions to political campaigns, - both the republican and the democratic candidates, this, in order to cover all bases.  No matter who the citizens voted for, democrat or republican, I would own them both.  The people would THINK they chose who they wanted, but in reality, they both work for me.
      I'd have a grand party at my residence.  At this party, I would invite these new friends and business acquaintances of mine, like the Governor, senators, mayor, judges, district attorneys, Police chief, media people, the hottest musicians, some other celebrities, in short, all the 'elite' of the area and out of area.
      There would be lots and lots of booze, and maybe some other mind altering substances that celebs use.
      At this party, I would also make sure that I had some other guests. They'd be female.  Well, mostly female. They'd be beautiful, and what's more important, they'd be for hire. Get my drift?  
       
      I would instruct these 'hired' guests of mine to get them good and drunk, and to 'please' my guests any way they would want to be 'pleased'.  I would have the premises at my house equipped with many tiny cameras, video-ing all the action. I would keep these videos for future need, i.e. twisting arms, blackmailing.

      If I ever found myself in legal proceedings or any court cases against me, I would ask the judges, district attorney, whoever, to find a way to drop the case, or lose evidence, -whatever it takes to get the charges dropped, or the case thrown
      out.  If they didn't comply, I would show them the videos I have and ask them if they would want it to get out, and their career ended.
       
      This by the way happens in 'real life' and there have been cases of judges being bribed, the courts 'losing evidence', or thugs threatening jury members or witnesses to a case.  In the case of law and enforcement, there are politicians who have the power to make a law in-active, by stating that there is 'no public interest' in enacting or pursuing a case.
       
      To be continued, however, I will try to address any comments below that you leave.
