How To Tell. . .

The Depth Of Trouble The American Democracy Is In?
by The Old Hippie Because I See Its Deepness


This administration's own General Accounting Office, (GAO,) has publicly told the White House that their using of taxpayer monies, our monies, to produce, and distribute, what the GAO itself terms "illegal covert propaganda," is against the laws of our nation - Our nation's laws - not anyone elses'.

And what is the president's response?

(I paraphrase here)  With an arrogant smirk firmly up-front, he openly, publicly, says fuck 'em, and ordered all of "our" federal agencies to "ignore" the GAO, (read 'break American law',) and to continue to use "our" money to illegally produce, and distribute, covert propaganda, the soul purpose of which is to "fool" the people, (us-you-me-everyone-below-the 1%,) that are paying for it, with the fake newscasts they make and distribute.

His smirk is firmly in place because he knows that they will get away with it, again.

That is how one can tell their Constitutional Democracy has been destroyed.  The "Leader" is told he can't do something, because it is illegal by the laws of our land, and he openly says 'fuck you,' I'm doing it, and rhetorically ask, 'what're you going to do about it?'  With the smirk barely being held back from an open belly laugh.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

Why aren't you in the streets in open, sustained, coordinated revolt?

Does anyone really believe today's worldwide protests will have any effect, or affect, on the president, or his cronies?  Protests just make their knowing smirks wider.  Open revolt would maybe accomplish something - But that would take sacrifice and courage, the same kind our founders demonstrated when they created this Constitutional Democracy.

That was all I had to say today.

Hi Hippie,

You mean join one of those encounter groups, like asshole calls them? Actually, if I didn't have a slight heart problem I probably would go march in the parade with them tomorrow up in Reno. As it stands, I'm left to read about it on the net. I just can't stand to watch TV any longer, except for Star Trek, DS9, and West Wing reruns. What the hell?
