You know, what's happening right now isn’t all bad. Sometimes things have to get unbelievably terrible before people wake up. In AA, this is called "hitting bottom" -- and the good news about hitting bottom is that's where all the bounce is.
Nearly everything Obama has done since the primaries isn’t only non progressive, it isn't even centrist. He spends most of his time sucking up the Israeli lunatic fringe right wing, corporate Texas energy vampires, etc, etc. There's really no point is listing all the stuff, since he's basically doing EXACTLY the same things our dem/pug congress has been doing.
So now, I guess we can talk about the dem/pug/Obama convention. One party of hog troughers. God, people will be able to hear the squeals of greed on the other side of the planet when Obama makes it clear all that "liberal/progressive" stuff in the primaries was crapola.
Probably the high point of the convention is when Judas Joe Lieberman gives him a big sloppy kiss.
So, what's the story?
(1.) We now know with ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY that the United States of America is a Dictatorship of the Rich.
(2.) We now know with ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY that we have a one party political system.
(3.) We now know with ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY that our one party system is abjectly under the control of 1% of the country, i.e., the vampire rich.
(4.) We now know with ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY the our Democratic Republic (what a laugh!) is rapidly turning into a Police State.
(5.) We now know with ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY that we are up to our eyebrows in a Class War -- and guess who the suckers are who pay all the taxes (hey, no taxes for yachts in California!) and sacrifice their children as cannon fodder for vampire rich oil wars. Yes, you guessed it. They all belong what's left of the middle and lower classes.
(6.) Millions of Americans profoundly believe 9/11 was an "inside job". Let's spell that out. 9/11 wasn't the mere result of Bush Administration ineptitude; it was the direct result of Bush Administration engineering. In other words, 9/11 happened BECAUSE OF the neocon/Bush administration. They made it happen to justify the preemptive invasion of Iraq, and to tax out of existence the cattle class (that’s us), and most of all to turn Iraq into a "money cow" war of billions and billions of graft money -- and on and on. But the main thing to bear in mind is that 9/11 was ENGINEERED by the Bush/neocons.
(7.) Speaking of the neocons, millions of Americans have finally got it that Bush's neocon "advisors" are all of a piece of the lunatic right wing fringe of Israel: meaning for the last eight years (actually more) our foreign policy has been a tail wagged by the dog of American/Israeli right wing crazies. Sure would be nice if American foreign policy was determined only by Americans, wouldn't it?
Of course, this list could go on an on.
So, do we have a moral here? Indeed we do. Millions and millions of Americans would agree with most of the above. There might be a debate here or there about this or that, but the big picture is that we are living in a textbook Dictatorship of the Rich that is willing to do ANYTHING (e.g., treasonously engineer 9/11 and lie about Iraq even in presidential addresses) to keep a relative handful of multi millionaire and billionaire international elites astronomically rich (and still getting richer).
And of course there's a marriage in hell between the international elites and right wing sociopaths of the two countries in question. Indeed, these sociopaths fuel the Police State master plan of the elites.
Simple: Dictatorship of the Rich with an evolving Police State. That's what's really out there.
Now let's see if Obama will address ANY of this at the convention.
He should, you know, since we're talking about the total and very rapid extinction of our human freedoms and Constitutional Democracy.
But, this American thinks "hitting bottom" includes seeing our dem/pug/Obama one party system for exactly what it is, i.e., a 6,000 year old strategy to keep the elites living like Greek Gods and all the rest of us living like cattle.
Oh by the way, let's not forget that elites are totally willing to indulge in genocide. Look at what white Europeans have done to black Africans. And for that matter, on a smaller scale, look at Bush's assassination of New Orleans. Gotta keep that black population down.
And lastly, look at what the dem/pug/Bush/neocons have done to our life and death health protections and plans. All those chemicals in our food and water are steadily killing us you know. Is that just fate or chance, or are the elites "weaning the cattle". They need us (who else will clean their commodes), but they don't want "too many" of us.
Probably nothing would be more horrifying for Americans than a massive examination of how hundreds of things are now being allowed and encouraged in our country in order to gradually kill off millions of us. No inspection of poisonous meat, unnecessary pesticides, avoidable pollutants in our water supplies, even verifiable hanky panky in our pharmaceuticals ("medicine" that ain't medicine). Hey, too many cattle just can't be allowed -- especially as the bad karma of raping Mother Nature starts kicking in more and more.
Now many Americans realize some, most, or all of these things (again, debate about details doesn't change the monstrously evil big picture). And make no mistake, we are talking about monsters. Unfortunately our country is now under to total control of literal monsters.
They certainly control the political game.
And they certainly seem to be controlling Barack Obama.
And oh yes, the bounce. Let's not forget the bounce. We are clearly hitting bottom, so let's talk about the bounce.
The bounce, such as it is, will come from one thing only! It will come from being in touch with reality. It all comes down to how many Americans are willing to puke out the fantasy version of America. You know, that America the elites have brainwashed us into thinking is real.
But IT'S NOT REAL. What's real is the Dictatorship of the Rich. What's real is the oncoming Police State. What's real is that 1% of the human race (including in America) owns and has control of virtually everything on the planet What's real is that, compared to the Greek God like elites, all the rest of us are living like human cattle.
No one knows what percentage in-touch-with reality-Americans will catalyze a social cataclysm, but when that critical mass is reached, the “bounce” will happen and Americans will start DOING WHATEVER THEY HAVE TO DO to resurrect our Constitutional Republic. We shouldn’t kid ourselves about this. If and when that critical mass of “enlightened” American is reached, all bets are off on everything. Radical change will happen, no matter what the cost! Most of all, the elites will be “dealt with”, since they are the core cancers of planet Earth. The Have and Have Not horror will be challenged ultimately and permanently.
Case in point: When the full truth that the 9/11 atrocity was actively engineered by the Bush Administration (and friends), only God can predict what will happen . . .
And Barack who?

Are we trapped in some kind of terrible fairly tale in which an evil witch has metamorphed Obama in a squeaking mouse?
Because, that's all the EVER does these days (when he's not on vacation), he squeaks. No fire, no liberal passion, no "standing up and being counted" -- just squeaks.
Also, he "reacts" to McCain. What does he do when McCain is not asserting himself? Couch potato television? Who knows, but what we DO know is that he won't even squeak unless McCain gives him something to react to.
Suddenly he's turned into a McCain reaction machine. Not an Obama ACTOR, but just a McCain REACTOR. And when he does react he squeaks out something that sounds like a page from an academic paper that mesmerizes everyone into a coma.
What happened to his funkiness? Where's the passion? Where's the down and dirty political street fighting? And most of all, where's the moral outrage. Jesus, he's turned into Nancy Pelosi in slacks.
And naturally, the polls are going straight to hell. He had incredible (mostly progressive) momentum at the beginning of this presidential campaign, but he's pooped it all away in, what (?), one month. A Zogby/Reuters poll, 8/20, has him down five point from McCain. Not ever f_____ even, but DOWN, and down BIG!
Oh, God, God, God, not ANOTHER ONE! Not another democrat (no upper case for this party) who snatches defeat from the jaws of victory. Tell me it ain't so.
And yet, there could be some constructive conclusions from the polls and from the general disgust of even centrist voters for Obama's reactive squeaks.
This is feedback. This is making diamond clear the difference between the progressive talking Obama, the activist, and the champion of change (vs.) the DLC/Carvilleized Obama, the Nancy Pelosi in slacks Obama, and the squeaking mouse dem/republican.
Someone once said people much prefer to vote to for Republicans than Democrats who act like Republicans, such as the "reborn" Obama, the status quo supporter Obama, and the Obama who has totally turned his back on his dynamic, progressive base.
This guy has turned into a mugwump. Mug on the right of center side and very little wump on the other side. What he's trying to do is make everyone happy. He's changed into archetypal democrat who has no moral or rational stand about ANYTHING, and we all know what happens to archetypal democrats, don't we? They turn into Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. Even worse, they turn into Joe Lieberman.
Obama talks like the primaries never even happened. For awhile, it was OK because you could write off his squeaking as possibly the political chess game you have to play to get support from the center.
But he's gone far, FAR beyond that. He's turned into a clone of the dem/republican congress. He's turned into a clone of those unforgivable traitors to the constitutional and moral soul of America. Plus, it's like he's lost all his nerve. He doesn't speak out strongly about ANYTHING. No, just those catatonic "lectures" that are the answer to Republican prayers.
"Change", the guy probably can't even spell the word anymore. Was he in some kind of trance during the primaries or is he in some kind of trance now?
OK, back to the good part of this. If what's happening now doesn't convince him that he should fire all his mousey, dem/pug "advisors", nothing will.
What should he start doing IMMEDIATELY. He should go back to progressive policies and the passion for change. Change, change, change -- that's what he should be talking about, not all these gutless, immoral "compromises" with the devil. Leave that to the dem/put congress and the "leaders" of the house and senate. They've been doing NOTHING BUT THAT for the last 4 years, so to hell with them all.
It's almost if the guy is drugged. Is someone putting downers in his breakfast food? Is he really the twin brother of the "other" Obama, you know, the one in the primaries, the one who was morally outraged by the Bush administration and who promised to change basically EVERYTHING, the one for whom words like liberal and progressive were the beating heart of America.
This man has simply got to snap out of it. No more droning lectures instead of down and dirty moral outrage. No more mere reacting to McCain. This is the time for action, not reaction! No more compromises with the Devil. No more COOPERATING with the rape of Mother Nature. No more COOPERATING with the Israeli lunatic fringe right wing. No more COOPERATING with corporate Texas energy vampires. No more COOPERATING with committees who pretend 9/11 wasn’t an inside job and high profile Democrats never received anthrax in the mail. And is he ever going to say ANYTHING about the Bush assassination of New Orleans?
It's time to draw lines in the sand. It's time for him to not only act like a man, but act like a presidential man. It's time to gloriously gamble that morality and rationality truly will keep our ship of state afloat much more than treasonous DLC back room deals with the Bush/Republican devils.
My God, Barack, why do you think you are where you are? Divine Right? Your "looks"? Fate?
Wake up buddy. You are where you are ONLY because that's where progressive Americans put you, and believe me, you need them much more than they need you.
If you turn out to be just another dem/pug clone, we'll deal with that. We'll keep the faith and eventually we'll find a REAL rational/moral American who will NOT betray his base, the American Constitution, and the planet Earth -- as you certainly seem to be doing.
Hey, Barack. Read the polls. Look where your dance with the devil advisors have taken you. Better get used to hurricanes of contempt if you turn out to be after all just another betrayer of the American progressive soul.
