What a month! Even the best fiction writers could not come up with the scenarios we have seen and maintain any kind of believability. But this is America and truth is in short supply. Big lies, little lies, multiple lies ... we take them in stride and move on. I've been looking for some local folks who are as outraged as I am but can't seem to find them. Silence is the rule. If we don't talk about what is actually going on then the problems must not exist. We 'got' Bin Laden so we're making progress is the common theme.
It's springtime and the "Idiocracy" of America is in full bloom. We are the sideshow exhibits and those who have the power of life and death gawk at us in amused scorn at just how stupid and gullible we actually are.
Not everyone is a gullible idiot of course but being a 'truther' minority means in this case we are always going to be discriminated against and made to look foolish by not conforming to the prevailing deceptions. Being put in a jar of formaldehyde and preserved as an example of what happens to those who don't love their slavery may not be that far off an image.
My grandson had a sort of rite of passage last night, the high school prom. In his case it was where you pay $100 to rent a tux, $20 for the girl's small corsage and they didn't even get to have a live band, just the same old music industry promoted pop and country music that they hear daily on the radio. He had fun but it's over quickly, unlike another rite of passage that seems to go on and on ... the military recruiter. These lying pricks are allowed in the schools and pound on a young kid's head how it will make them a man and gain 'experience' along with some vague monetary incentives. What should be a no-brainer "Just Say No" or "Go Fuck Yourself" response to the death merchant too often turns into a "Sure, why not, I can't get a job anyway and you did say killing a few 'Mooslums' is our patriotic duty."
Just this morning I heard of a young Nashville Marine who was killed in Afghanistan and the lead line in the story was that he was doing what he was born to do. What? He was born to die in a foreign land in an illegal immoral war for the profit of bankers and war contractors? Born to be a pawn, yep, every kid's dream.
In other 'big' local news, Geert Wilders came to Nashville to stir the hatred and every fear mongering crazed neocon quack and Christian zionist whack job came out of the woodwork to praise this outside agitator and possible CIA/Mossad asset. Three days after his speech at a 'church' and the media is still going on about him but nary a peep from the presstitutes about the May 15 Nakba Day or the fraud of the 'jewish' state of Israel, without which, along with a few other zionist 'events' such as 9/11, the Islamophobia narrative would not even be taking place.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been arrested in New York in the sexual attack of a maid at a Midtown Manhattan hotel. A criminal organization, the IMF, being run by a sexual criminal ... who could have guessed? Big money will probably get this creep off. After all, raping entire nations is his job and he gets by with that.
In another bit of good news, Israel firster and would be traitor Mike Huckabee has said no to running for president. I suppose he realized that even in America there aren't enough Republican fools to get him elected or maybe he didn't want to be the designated loser this time around.
Although we like Ron Paul's anti-federal reserve, non-intervention, anti-war, bring the troops home stance and without him that message will not be heard at all in the upcoming presidential cycle, he was disappointing in the minutes after his announcement yesterday when he just had to use the words holocaust and Nazis in response to some question by a shill reporter. He also can't get past the rhetoric of 'blowback' and that Bin Laden and arabs did 9/11. Paul is blasted by the left, the right and the middle and if you're going down, why not go down swinging with everything you've got. I'm stubborn. 9/11 is a root cause of the fascist downfall of this country and if one cannot speak the truth about it at least concerning what we do know and call for the real criminals to be brought to justice, it's hard to give them full support. Paul is playing within the system and as we all know ... the system is a failure for most of us and it cannot be changed by playing by the rules of those who have rigged the game.
