The Color of the Future

by Jim Kirwan

If you liked the last eight years you’re going love the future – in fact you will experience explosions of ecstasy – because the entire world will be lying at your feet! Or more likely; unless you are one of the Owners, you will find yourself among the destitute, the hungry and the lost; writhing among millions of the disillusioned and the damned!

Tyranny & SlaveryThe reason for this is that after the selection becomes official there will be no more of this Democratic-Republic stuff; there will only be outbursts of outrageous promises, continuously shattered, and this new reality will be enforced by troops and Homeland Security thugs.

This nightmare hinges on something as fragile as your personal beliefs. This involves “Trust” at the deepest levels of possibility in what any politician or figure-head is promising now; in these last few weeks before the doors of our private prisons are slammed shut: Against any future possibility of personal freedom!

If we do not now demand that congress stop the creation of this Slush-Fund for the rich and corrupted, then we shall have given over control of our lives to a faceless shadow that will control everything we say or think or do: which is the definition of ‘Slavery.’

The 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division forms the core of Task Force Operations assigned to NORTHCOM and will be the first US troops, just back from Iraq, to break with the posse comitatus provisions of US law, Commencing October 1, 2008. Today the Senate will illegally vote on their version of legislation; as all laws must originate in the US House of Representatives: something Bush referred to yesterday when he claimed that “how legislation gets done does not matter.” Couple this with Speaker Pelosi’s declaration of Martial Law in attempting to pass-without-debate the Slush Fund for the Corporatocracy and the self-appointed owners of this government.

Given this; how then does anyone evaluate political leadership? To attempt to look ahead, for understanding, we need to look back to previous events and conditions and then review the real-time results. Any “promise” made to anyone can only be evaluated based on what is known about similar prior experiences. Before the current onslaught became an everyday event, promises had to be kept if the person or institution that had made the promises wanted to have a future. That is no longer true in the global-marketplace where corruption, greed and power have come to divide the public from their lives and property, as well as from having any voice in ‘what shall come to pass!” It is not an accident that the ‘color’ of the illustration above is the same as the color of money – the question is will this be the color of our future as well!

The public has seen the writing on the wall but the candidates, the government and in particular the congress are demanding that the will of the public be overridden to give their favorite criminals a multi-trillion-dollar giveaway, with immunity from prosecution, for everything that has led directly to this crisis.

Either the government of the US represents a nation that enacts the overwhelming will of its citizens, or we shall have become enslaved to those that have already stolen our country and are now seeking total control over what shall become of our wealth. What is at stake now is what will happen to our right to choose the things that will most directly will affect everything about the way we shall be ‘allowed’ to live in what will be our future!

Freedom’s light is not something that can exist unless it clearly includes the responsibilities that must imbue the entire concept, because otherwise there is only a “Lord of the Flies” society where power alone determines every action.

Either the laws of this land are there to be followed or we have embarked upon a course that can only lead to the total collapse of this criminal-enterprise that we continue to call The United States of America!

One example of these horribly distorted promises, that gives the public a clear idea of what we can expect to come from this crisis, are the unilateral and preemptive wars that we’ve been aggressively prosecuting since 2001. When you review what is about to voted on again and again in D.C. until the traitors can finally get this passed, please remember this time: Remember all the lies and exaggerations, plus the unbearable costs in blood and treasure that we were promised would NOT happen!

Look at both Afghanistan and Iraq. Look at the costs that are utterly staggering, compared to what we were told to expect.

AMY GOODMAN: Talk about this, the global war on terror.

ANDREW BACEVICH: Well, I mean, the phrase itself is one that really ought to cause people to have their heads snap back a little bit, because President Bush and others around him – Rumsfeld was certainly very clear on this – it’s a war, it’s global, and how long is it going to go on? Well, they said from the outset it’s going to go on for decades. In the Pentagon, there’s a phrase that gets used, “generational war,” a war that lasts a generation or more.

Well, we need to ask ourselves whether that really makes sense? What are the costs entailed by waging war for a generation? Where does the money come from? What are we not doing because we’re spending all this money on war? And in a very human sense, who actually pays the cost? I mean, who serves? Who doesn’t serve? Whose social needs are getting met, and whose are not getting met, as a consequence of having open-ended global war be this national priority?

It seems to me that were we to accurately gauge the actually existing threat – and there is a threat. I mean, 9/11 happened. There are people out there who want to kill us. But were we to actually gauge that threat in a realistic way, we would see that open-ended global war is not only unnecessary, but it’s probably counterproductive, that there are better ways to go about keeping us secure than to engage in global war.”

President Bush exploits that after 9/11. He decides he knows how it wants to be used. And, of course, for the first time in our history, when we go to war, instead of a president turning to the Congress and turning to the country and say, “We’re going to have to change the way we do business, because we’re at war,” President Bush actually says, “Go to Disney World. Go shopping. Go back to doing what you have been doing for the last ten years, and I’ll take care of everything.” And I have to say, the great majority of the American people – I don’t think listeners of your show – but the great majority of the American people basically did what Bush said and tuned the war out and allowed the burden to fall on a very small percentage of the population, which I find, frankly, morally objectionable.” And there is also the interview with Bill Moyers.

The public must demand that this charade be stopped dead; and the American public’s views must be used to create a totally new piece of legislation that meets the concerns of the public. This must be done by-the-book so that the rules concerning how legislation comes to a vote are not violated!

FreedomEither the government of the US represents a nation that enacts the overwhelming will of its citizens, or we shall have become enslaved to those that have already stolen our country and are now seeking total control over what shall become of our wealth. What is at stake now is what will happen to our right to choose the things that will most directly affect everything about the way we shall be ‘allowed’ to live in what will be our future! If this hijacking of the public’s treasury and our common sense is allowed to stand then the Color of our Future will definitely be eternal darkness!
