Interesting, And Dangerous. . .

It's Not Just Interesting Times, But Rather Dangerous Times...
by The Old Hippie Because The “Allowing” Is Still Being Allowed - Now Isn't It.

Dylan was correct, the times they are a-changin’ - But the changes are proving to be more dangerous, than interesting, so far.  From long before the 2000 “selection/election,” we on the left have reported on, and predicted the many now realized dangers our nation, and the world, collectively faced from the ongoing take-over of our American Constitutional Democracy by the corporatists.  I'm not into schadenfreude, or I-told-you-so, but damn it, every single dangerous prediction has come true, with most of the early predictions being realized faster, and more strongly, than when first predicted, e.g. global warming, and/or the destruction of the balance of powers, and/or the turn toward a theocratic corporate manipulation of manufactured fears, etc...  These times are dangerous, more so each day.  The following is reprised from earlier postings, as this info is not new at all - Is it?

{-The Way Many Picture Me-}

We who banged our heads against the wall of denial took abuse as Chicken Littles, were laughed at as conspiracy nuts, called un-American for “questioning” the obvious dangers, ignored as if the danger was over-blown, derided as agitators, accused of being weak-minded or wrongheaded on the terrorist threat, or worse - mislead by liberal propaganda into being supporters of the terrorists, and against our troops.  And now here we collectively are. . .  The start of the summer of 2007. . .  The ice is melting, faster.  The oceans are rising, faster.  The species, both plant and animal, are disappearing, faster.  The whole of the planet's peoples are turning against us, faster.  Corporate privatization of all nation's natural resources is happening, faster.  America “allowed” America to become, and to this moment is still denying that America has become...

An incorporated nation of corporate-supporters/collaborators, and “allowers,” to the point of planet wide destruction, faster.  And due to the “denial of the allowing,” my America remains almost completely blind to our own self-destruction.  There's always hope - Until reality is “allowed” to smack you in face, and says not anymore. . .  Meanwhile the 1%'ers are still sneering at your denied “allowing” all the way to their banks in their protected enclaves. . .  When the destruction reaches you, and you need a place to hide from it, do you think they will “allow” you in?

Mr. Olbermann is correct, ...betrayal... is the most accurate description, particularly within the reality of these dangerous times.

A walk through Wal-Mart will tell you why it's allowed.
