Wake The Fuck Up!  (#3)

“Anyone, Who Still “Believes,” After All That has Been Exposed Within the Last Six Years, That the Republicans are Ruled by Anyone Other Than the Ideological Theocratic War-Profiteering Corporatists, Using Lies, Death, and Manufactured Fears. . . To Destroy the American Democracy, Which Stands in the Way of Their Profit/Power Agenda - Are Either “Part of Them,” or Completely Blinkered and Delusional In-Denial Cowards, or Total and Dangerous Idiots.” [-I wish that it contained bombast, but sadly, it doesn't-]

The 46% Factor of last year, has become the 39% Factor of this year. . .

The right-wing rulers, and their sycophants, are “outraged!”  . . .  At the outrage of everyone else, over the revelations that it is now official American policy to “allow” the torture of humans, most of which have been proven, and even verified by the Pentagon's own reports, to be innocent of any crimes, and never charged with any crimes, in their [our?] prisons - That they actually did lie to all of us, for nothing more than profits - That they have been exposed as not being “moral” Christians at all, and that they even consider the “Christians” that helped vote them in - as “nuts” - They are outraged that we would even question them.

For whatever reasons one can rationalize - They, the 39% Factor, that “still approve,” of this criminally corrupted corporatist administration, simply refuse to, or dangerously can't handle, the reality of the truth. . .  Truth that refuses to stop slapping them in the face - - -

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

Denial, blinding obedience, bigotry, America-right-or-wrong, just plain dangerous politics-over-reason, god is on our side, sycophantic profiteers, it was just a few of the “bad-apple” soldiers - not the system, not the rulers, etc., etc., etc., - - -

The fact remains, as more and more evidence pours in from more in-the-system whistleblowers, who are not in the opposition party, from non-agenda driven neutral experts, from the testimony of those that have been abused/used, from the pics, and now - the videos - that they are wrong - dangerously wrong.

I personally don't care what they do with Rumsfeld, or what happens to him - I do care that the “system” is not being fixed.

I do care that the corporately controlled American prisons, here within the United States, and those prisons they hid in foreign countries, have for years been known to be “broken” - violent places of rape, death, abuse. . . (evidence is abundant on the web) - and to this day continues to “abuse,” and rape, and kill, the “political innocents,” along with the guilty - Which in “our” foreign prisons, including those in Guantanamo, the innocents far out-number the guilty.

I do care that one of the largest business lobbys in America is private prison corporations - - !

I do care that America has imprisoned more of its population - us - than any other nation in the written history of this entire planet - in both raw numbers, and the percentage of total population - and that the very large majority of these Americans are “on the inside” for non-violent reasons.

I do care that in the face of all of the proof of the bad, stupid, and the dangerous criminality of this administration - that 39% of Americans still “approve” of this administration!

I do care that the voting machines obvious criminal design - is not yet being fixed - the majority during this coming election will not be fixed - - The majority of them - - It is insane.

Go to any or the right-wing's propaganda web sites, FOX, Limbaugh, Novak, NewsMax, Hannity, CATO, The Heritage Foundation, the American Enterprise Institute, listen and watch and read their denials, their rationals, their lies, their propaganda - and absorb that 39% of Americans still believe them!

“Get over it.” - “It's time to stop apologizing.” - “They're evil killers!” - “You're either with us, or with the terrorists!” - - - “To publicly expose the truth only helps the our enemies!”

Never mind that it has been shown that 70% to 90% of those feared “evil” Iraqi prisoners have been shown, proven by the Pentagon, to have been arrested by mistake!

Never mind that the large majority of them did exactly what you or I would have done, would do - in their situation of a disastrous, and outright criminal foreign occupation, that is “privatizing” all of their national assets away from them, that is killing them in the thousands, not killing just men - but also women and children - proven - pictured and taped for all to see.  (Which some right-wing deniers are saying “must” be fakes!)

But yet - 39% still “approve” of this criminal administration - - -

They have made it clear to all - The draft will most likely be returned - Except it will now draft women - and those to the age of 35, rather than 25. . .

39% approve - -

They have made it clear that they support their corporations' profits over the democracy itself. . .

39% approve - -

They have made it clear that they are doing all that they can, legally and illegally, to privatize as much of America's assets as possible, as fast as possible. . .

39% approve - -

They made it clear that when Bush said “God chose me for this time”, that they supported the demonizing of anyone “doubting it,” or “questioning it”. . .  in their 5-corporation corporatist media, (that share the majority of their boards-of-directors with the defense, extractive, and pharmaceutical corporations) - - -

39% approve - -

They may it clear that the “Separation of Church and State” is in their way, and must be done away with. . .

39% approve - -

They have made it clear that when they can't get their way - they will bypass Congress - even illegally - to get around us - and so far have successfully been “allowed” to get away with it. . .

39% approve - -

They have made it clear that they “money-laundered” the entirety of our treasury into the pockets of the top 1%, and that they are coming for even more - and that the lower 90% of us fodder-units, and our children, will have to pay for their theft - and so far - they have been totally successful with the largest open theft in U.S. history. . .

39% approve - -

They have made it clear they will “protect their way of life,” and will “protect their freedoms” - even from “us” lowly 90% - At any costs, to us, to our children. . .  And, with the profitable “denial” of global warming, even at the costs to their own children - for nothing more honorable than personal profits.

39% approve - -


Insane - off-the-fringe - born-again evangelical dominionists, with a real hope of purposefully creating "the rapture", in combination with the opportunistic corporations, (the real power behind the power,) that are taking every opportunistic advantage of the “nut's insanity,” to do all that they can possibly be “allowed” to get away with, to take over the this nation, and the world.

I wish I had a way to wake up the liberal base. I saw a bumper sticker the other day that read “I Never Thought I Would Miss Nixon.” Well, what I miss is a counter balancing Congress and Judiciary. I remember during the 1972 election I was voting absentee along with some fellow students. When one said he was voting for Nixon, I asked why the hell he would do that. He replied that McGovern was too radical but to keep Nixon in check he always voted for Democrats for Congress. This is one of the purposes of mid-term elections, to counter balance and reign in the power of the Executive. It would be nice if the real conservatives out there were to wake up and discover that this bunch of wacko NeoCons have nothing to do with true Conservatism, but I won’t be holding my breath. We will not win Congress by mobilizing Republicans we must get out the Democratic vote. This is why I fear the Foley scandal as motivation for Republicans to go vote since they now see a strong Democratic showing as probable.

I think that what is at work here is the old advertising gimmick, brand identification. People are choosing their team first, beliefs second, as in: "I am a republican, therefore I believe this, this, and this, and I hate that, that, and that."

In a rational world, it would be the other way around. Citizens would investigate the issues, clarify their positions, then support the candidate that best represented them.

Too many people are content to sit back and let the party do their thinking for them.

If John Kennedy were around today, he would be a Republican.
No doubt about it, Mark Foley is a slimeball, but he did resign. The Democratic slimeball, Barney Franks (can someone please give this guy/gal or whateve he is a set of dentures?)let his boyfriend run a prostitution ring out of his (Barney's) Georgetown townhouse, but that was just met with an "Oh well" and a wink and he is still being re-elected. What's wrong with Massachussetts?
Hey, Michael, saw your picture. You are hot! I'll come here more often.

Is it really necessary to use the F word so often? You seem like a smart guy. Is your vocabulary that limited?

Dear Anonymous, I only used the "F-word," (i.e. "fuck" to most mature adults,) twice in the article. If this truly offends your delicate nature, please, don't bother coming here, if a word offends, and what is being done to this nation by the corporatist thieves of this administration doesn't, if what their actions have done to so many thousands of people around this planet, and what they have destroyed doesn't, then your are lost, especially after all that has been exposed within the last six years.

I normally don't respond to this type of immature comment, but I have to admit to being in a foul mood today.

I tried to post a response to this, with an apology, but apparently got kicked off. Can you tell me why?

Thanks. One day I will try to return the favor.

The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.

The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature.

Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment.

Subject : In a fast society slow emotions become extinct.
Subject : A thinking mind cannot feel.
Subject : Scientific/ Industrial/ Financial thinking destroys the planet.
Subject : Environment can never be saved as long as cities exist.

Emotion is what we experience during gaps in our thinking.

If there are no gaps there is no emotion.

Today people are thinking all the time and are mistaking thought (words/ language) for emotion.

When society switches-over from physical work (agriculture) to mental work (scientific/ industrial/ financial/ fast visuals/ fast words ) the speed of thinking keeps on accelerating and the gaps between thinking go on decreasing.

There comes a time when there are almost no gaps.

People become incapable of experiencing/ tolerating gaps.

Emotion ends.

Man becomes machine.

A society that speeds up mentally experiences every mental slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A ( travelling )society that speeds up physically experiences every physical slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A society that entertains itself daily experiences every non-entertaining moment as Depression / Anxiety.

Why did you stop posting in Oct?
More please.

I stumbled upon this blog, and was pleased to find an isolated space of clarity and lucidity.

Thank you.

If you ran for President, and if I were an American and if I lived there, I would vote for you.

Perhaps it is fortunate that none of these are true. I am safe here in the Great White North, with my great snowfalls, bears and wolves.

Up here, above Superior, we study history and wait to see if there are men among you who will save a nation, a great people, and a great democracy.

If you studied at Oxford, Paris or Rome we may have met. Spilled a beer.

I wish you well.
