What gets your hackles up the most? Crooked politicians (is that redundant?), obsession with money and possessions, destruction of our environment, the insanity of our so-called “justice” system, the hyper-militarization of our country, the TOTAL destruction of our constitutional rights (yeah, that happened when the Bush-Cheney regime was installed by our SUPREME Court).
We seem to be surrounded by totally brainwashed sheep whose priorities seem to be totally incomprehensible to thinking people. For too many folks, as long as you don’t interfere with their access to such necessities as: American Idol; Dancing With The Stars; Facebook and Twitter; ball games and professional “rasslin’”; a 3,000 sq.ft. house (for 2 people); a 48″ television; sitcoms; ad nauseum, they won’t complain nor even notice that there
may be ARE some VERY serious problems all around us. So, what to do?
But a very realistic question arises…CAN we really do anything to change all this? Does it REALLY matter WHO we vote for? If I remember correctly, more people AROUND THE WORLD rallied to protest the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq than any other event in history. Did it change ANYTHING AT ALL???? Of course not, because our representatives do NOT represent US at all. Most of them are prostitutes for the lobbyists, doing their bidding no matter how reprehensible. Those same representatives regularly threaten and intimidate each other to get bills passed, to end inquiries that might reveal something WE might not like, and to generally bully each other into voting how the PTB wish. There are a LOT of rotten apples in this barrel!
If your cherished ones are involved in the invasion/occupation of either Iraq or Afghanistan, no matter how much you may love your husband/wife, son/daughter, uncle/aunt, best buddy, etc, they are ALL international war criminals! Don’t shoot the messenger…do some research yourself. The USA is the greatest war criminal in recorded history. Look at how many countries have been invaded in the last century by the US, usually for mega-corporations or to secure resources for ourselves. (also, of course, to have military outposts in almost every country of any size on the planet).
Now, you may say who am I to just spout off about all this drama? That’s a legitimate question. Over the next few months, I’ll be sharing with you some of my experiences in scenarios as small as private affairs to a local idea which blew up to be an international news story. Sufficient information will be provided for you to check out the validity of my statements, the soundness (or lack thereof) of my decisions, and whether the outcome was “worth it”. Coming up first will be the biggest event I was involved in, the infamous “Forsyth County Incident”.
In the meanwhile, keep your eyes open, your mind clear and your heart strong–you’re going to need it. B.
