Once Again It's. . .

Time For Another One Of My, "A Bit Of The Old Rant. . ."
by The Old Hippie, Because It Is So Beyond The Pale, And So In Our Collective Face


This picture says a thousand articles about how we "elected" this administration.  In essence We didn't.  We all know it is true - not possibly, not maybe, not could be - but definitely true.  You know it, and I know it.  It's a sure bet that all of us Americans deserve what is coming, because we did "allow" this to happen.  No ifs ands or buts, we "allowed," and we are still "allowing" it all.

Hacker All of the born-again imbeciles that actually wanted this do truly deserve what's coming much more than the "we" that fought this, even though it is now obvious we just didn't fight hard enough.  Most of us, the other 49%, actually believed, right up to the end, that our democracy was still intact, and would weed out the insane religious zealots and the criminal politicians with the vote - What a joke on us.  But the "why" of our deserving what's coming?  Is because - "We" knew -
"We" knew private corporations, run by two arrogant "Bush Pioneers," two brothers heading both corporations, had full control of the voting computers, and "we" knew these same corporations had 23 convicted felons in positions of manage-
ment, and software control, of the programs that control the
"count," without any traceable paper trail.  "We" knew it, and allowed it to happen anyway.

And Now. . . ?  The voting machines have spread even further in the states, We know that they corrupted all of the last three national elections, (2000, 2002, and 2004.) - But yet - Even in the face of all the expose facts of criminal corruptions - We continue to "allow" their use?!?  Are we, as a nation, insane, or simply stupid???

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

Yes - I'm angry at "them" for bringing this about - BUT - I'm much more pissed off at the "we" that "allowed" this to come about.  No matter how you reason it, or justify it, or deny it, the "we" are more at fault, than the "them," of our divided nation.

"We" were not deluded by insane religious rapture, "we" were not lost within the throes of profit and power of neo-con'ed aggressive Empire, "we" were not members of the corporate criminal cronies - "we" were/are simply naive Americans that believed our Constitutional Republic actually was still a reality.  Believed it would protect us.  But the reality is our government is now, and has been for the last six years, run by the combination of insane fundamentalist zealots, delusional neo-con imperialists, and opportunistic corporatist criminals taking every advantage of the other two's insanity.

No matter how you twist it - It is a conspiracy that is so obvious that it's invisible within the denial.
Every day we look more and more like Germany of the late 1930s, or a least not different enough.

We deserve what is coming. . .

The rest of the innocents on the planet do not.

Yep. "We the People" got all comfy and cozy and protected under the warm Dragon's Wing of the protect-us-pink Homeland. We're hypnotized and fattened like slaughter sheep. Good heartfelt and accurate piece there. Asking people to come out of that comforting "Materland" skirt means painful reality for most. Most people spend their time avoiding pain in all sorts of escapist ways. Hypnotized by the media, recreational drugs - including food, lack of true strong spiritual values.

Power Back To The People!
