Reality Check. . .

Some Have The Ability To “Put It All Together” - Here Are But A Few...
by The Old Hippie Because it is Getting Worse by the Hour, as the “Allowing” Continues.

  -  “Why Japan is Eating America's Lunch on Broadband”
      Not just in Japan, speeds that are 30x faster, and it cost much less.

  -  Just How Low Have [you allowed] War-Profiteers To Go?
      A Rolling Stone report, and extra video “Below The Fold”, explains.

  -  “CheneyBush’s “Mercenary” Legions”
      Taking private enterprise way beyond what is reasonable, (or safe.)

  -  “Strikingly Negative” GAO Iraq Report Leaked...
      Why was it leaked?  “To keep Bush from watering it down.”

“As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression.  In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.”

- Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas

The following video is from Mark Taibbi's article in Rolling Stone linked above.
I present it here correctly embedded, as Rolling Stone for some reason used
the less standard "iframe," which many web surfers can not see correctly, and
because the above linked CommonDreams copy of the article didn't include it...

“In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, Matt Taibbi reports on how President George W. Bush-appointed contractors in Iraq are exploiting American tax dollars.  Here, Taibbi narrates a video exploring the grim details of the situation even further.”

Somethings Happening. . .

It Would Do You Well To Know What These Happenings Are. . .
by The Old Hippie Because The “Allowing” Can't Be Modified - It Must Be Stopped.

Some say it's already too late.  In some areas, I think they may be right, e.g. the environmental damages from laser focused short term profiting, and the purposely misinform citizenry’s ignorance, and definitely for the hundreds of thousands of innocents that have been murdered as “collateral damage” for the promotion and protection of the short term profits of the corporate profiteers that have taken over the nation’s government.  Also I think it’s too late in another area, an area that requires one to fully understand our Constitution’s Article 6, specifically the phrase “Supreme Law of the Land.”  [To get a clear explanation of this, see the video at the end of this posting.]  No matter how one tries to rationalize it, this administration’s leaders are, since the invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003... war criminals, as defined by our own domestic “Supreme Law of the Land,” and by all recognized international laws.

{-The Way Many Picture Me-}

But is it really too late to turn it around?  I’m sure most all of us really want that to not be the case.  But - I honestly don’t know if it’s not already too late.  The fact that the evidence of the reality of the un-hidden criminal sociopathic nature of this administration’s pro-corporate agenda of profits-over-even-life-&-nation, has been so well proven, and so in-our-faces for so long, that the denial of it is beyond any possible sane rationality.  The fact that there has been no revolt, and so far no real attempted stopping of the “allowing” by the citizenry of my nation, in the face of the overwhelming evidence of the ongoing destruction caused by the few, over the many, that I think the continued allowing, and the self-destructive denial, has become, not only a disgrace, it has maybe become pathological.  I admit it’s possibility scares the hell out of me.

Some say it’s never too late.  And like most of you reading this, I hope that’s true.  There are signs of “somethings happening” cropping up, like when, just last week, “John Edwards fired a major broadside against corporate America and, more significantly, “corporate Democrats,” -- the likes of which hasn’t been heard from a viable candidate with national appeal in decades.”  Also the observation a few days ago by Barbara Ehrenreich, “We may be witnessing the first time in history that the downtrodden manage to bring down an unfair economic system without going to the trouble of a revolution.”  And just in my limited contact with others, I sense a “somethings happening” in the psyches of the masses of the many that feels like an awaking that borders on anger.  Almost like the denial is finally beginning to fade.  If so, it may grow, and it may not be too late.  Maybe.  Only time will tell, as they say.  But time has a way of running out, especially for the naive that still believe that good always triumphs over evil.

Another Reality Check. . .

Some Can See Your Reality - Here Are But A Few. . .
A Few Videos Exposing More Truth Than All Of The Mainstream Media Combined

Because You've Allowed It, “Our Nation's Media” is Now Controlled by Just Six Corporations,
Whom Share Boards of Directors with the Extractive/Ag-Chem/Pharma/HMO/“Defense” Corps,
Whose Only Concern is “What is the Most Profitable Way To Keep You Ignorant of the Theft...”
(The Theft of Your Money, and the Constitutional Protections from Their Theft of Your Money.)

And not to mention that their theft includes, not just your money, but also the lifes of your family and friends, the lives of thousands of innocents, plus the destabilization of the planet's environment, the decaying of this nation's infrastructure, the purposeful destruction of the Constitution, the rape of all of this government's regulatory protections, the successful, (and profitable,) transfer of power to the executive branch by the complete criminal corruption of the legislative and judicial branches, and your right to simply “know.”

  The videos can all be found, and viewed, in the “Below The Fold” section.  «-

Where Do You Stand?

Since You're Still Allowing The Allowing, Maybe It's Obvious.
by The Old Hippie Because So Far, You've Done Nothing Real To Stop Them.

After each purposeful rip of the Constitution, after each exposed lie about the previous lie, after each day's group of your children were killed to fill their profits, after each revelation of their cronies takeover and abuse of your federal regulatory agencies purposes were clearly shown to you, after each realized environmental destruction was proven to serve only their profits, after they openly, arrogantly, knowingly, sneered at you - You still, to this moment, still allow them your children, your money, your fear, your freedoms, your security, and your continued allowing.

My outrage fatigue is less towards the thieves, and more towards your continued allowing.

“Citizens?”  Do you still believe you deserve that honorific?  Opportunistic sociopathic thieves have openly taken over, and are in control of, “your” government.  Therefore, they have control over your environment, your money, your future, your children's future, your liberties and freedoms, your entire way of life - They have that control now.  Not possibly, not coming, not could have.  -- They have it now --
Please, tell me, what have you done to wipe the open, arrogant, knowing sneers off their faces?  Something that would allow you the honor of “citizen” maybe?  Anything?  Outside of your children, their futures, your environment, your wealth, your freedoms...  What have you sacrificed for your nation to qualify you as “citizen?”

How Much Time Did You Get Off From Your Job?
by the Old Hippie Because You Keep Giving Them Reasons To Sneer/laugh At You.

Bush set to beat Reagan’s vacation record.  Yesterday, President Bush took off for his vacation home in Crawford, TX, where he has already “spent all or part of 418 days of his presidency.”  With 17 months left in office, Bush is on course to beat “the presidential vacation-time record holder,” the late Ronald Reagan, “who tallied 436 days in his two terms.”  Bush’s vacation will mark the 65th time he has visited Crawford as President.

Here's a Link that may help you

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =  <  B e l o w  T h e  F o l d  >  = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

So - When the destruction reaches you - And it will reach you, if not already - Do you think they will allow you and/or yours into their protected enclaves?  Do you really believe they will let you interfere with "their freedoms."

Don't you get it yet?!?

It was never about your freedoms.  Your wealth.  Your protection/security. . .

It was/is - from the start, to even as I type this - about their protection from you.

About taking your wealth from you, your freedoms from you, and transferring it to themselves.

And still you do nothing - Still you continue to allow.

No Rant - Just Facts...

I'm Not Going To Rant, I'll Just Let The Facts Speak Their Truth.
by The Old Hippie Because You Didn't Stop Them, Now They Not Only Sneer, They Laugh At You.


Let's start with today's first four articles at's excellent site:
   1.  Justifications  2.  Proselytizing  3.  Constitution  4.  Mind Warp

   Now let's surf over to The Crisis Paper's site to read about how:
      ==>  Hillary Clinton Is The GOP’s Favorite Democrat  <==

  Those five articles alone should fire you up, but somehow I doubt it.

This Blog's Quote of the Day:  From the “Okay. . .” Posting. . .

This administration has been proven, in just about all the obvious ways that any citizen would need to know, that this administration is lead by, and filled with, lying destructive, even murderous, openly criminal thieves, that sneer in the faces of dissent, that are successfully, purposefully destroying the Constitution, and any restraints on their powers by the Constitution.  And yet - The citizenry of my nation still continues to “allow” them control and power.

“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face, It's just a goddamned piece of paper!”
