Tuesday’s ‘Things To Think Through’ Time.
by The Old Hippie Because One Should Often Turn Off The Buzz, And Just Think.

“All Successful Political Conspiracies are Eventually Called The Government of. . .

And, (the ’bad’ ones’ like this current administration, now rated by its own citizens as the worst in its 232 year history,) after their ‘victory’ then refer to most whom oppose, or those presenting evidence exposing them... (wait for it...) as conspiracy nuts, and/or un-patriotic and anti-American.

The first such successful conspiracy for our nation was the Founding Fathers’ take-over of the colonies from the British, creating the United States of America through violent revolution.

The second such successful conspiracy for our nation was/is the current destruction of the Constitution and Bill of Rights by the corporatists through successful cronyism, lies, sycophancy, collaboration, and a hostile take-over of all of this nation’s regulatory agencies, the re-writing of the regulations to protect themselves from the people, and a successful corporate take-over of almost all of the media of this nation to purposefully control info-flow to the masses, (us.)

The success of this is obvious in the non-actions of the now congressional-controlling ‘opposing’ party in power.  Now Think - Why would they not ‘oppose,’ even after the people gave them a mandate to ‘oppose’ in the mid-term election of 2006??? - Think.  Seriously, think. . .

All the lies that have been exposed, and proven beyond anyone’s doubt.  All of the exposed, and again proven beyond anyone’s doubt, theft and transfer of almost the entirety of this nation’s wealth through the blatant (again proven beyond any reasonable doubt,) use of no-bid contracts, etc... into the hands of their-very-very-few, and the transfer of the power that this wealth controls into their-very-very-few hands.  Yet... the opposing party does nothing real to stop them, much less ‘opposing’ them as “our” elected representatives, much less the punishment of their exposed and proven war-crimes-profiteering, such as torture, lying about the purpose for attacking Iraq with aggressive pre-emptive invasion, purposeful distortion, and politicization, of all science that in any way interfered with the flow of their very-very-fews’ profits, the illegal firing of Attorney Generals that didn't tow-the-line of lies and crimes, the illegal firings, and criminal maligning of any and all who dared to speak out from the ‘inside,’ etc... (did I mention the “Free-Speech Zones?”)

Why is the “allowing” of the crimes “allowed” to continue to this day, with no actual opposition, with no actual stopping, with no punishment by the ‘opposing’ party, and by you?

“*- Think -*” before you answer.

Here is a bonus “Below The Fold” link for you to think about today,
(which Michael Moore titled on his front-page as “The Land of Make Believe.”)

I think that there is little difference between a corporate exec and a hippie, both are focussed on rules and regulations, a corporate exec does not air his views because he has accountability (accountable to make profit!), he is dependant on a hippie with no accountability to voice his thoughts. a hippie cannot change the world as he cannot be seen to profit from his insights, that is why we survive, we need to be cynical like the old testament prophets. But that correlation has lost meaning since the corporate world (represented by the romans initially) already took ownership of the bible and have translated it to their view, which is maintaining profits which is niether good nor bad. There are a lot of good things happening though, which I like to also focus on and which keep me an old happy-hippie, like the beauty of nature, art and hash

I'm not really sure what the other poster is trying to say here...I believe there is an inherent difference between a corporate exec and an 'old hippie' who is trying to bring about change for the better. Corporations are focused narrowly on their own profits, their own gain, their own greed. Progressives and hippies alike seem to think in general about the good of all, not just the good of a few. How does blatant and useless consumerism that benefits a small minority even remotely compare to the rules and regulations necessary for an open and free society??? The corporate exec strives to stifle exactly that.

Maintaining profits is NEVER good. Mankind was not meant to create a world such as we have today, one so far removed from the earth and nature and plain common sense that we live in perpetual unhappiness. We're slaves from the moment we're born until our very last breath. In school from the age of 4 to 18, then working to enrich the lives of the few until we can retire at 65 or thereabouts, by which time we've lost our youth--and most of us have lost the will to make a difference.

I find it interesting that this poster, who describes themselves as another old hippie who likes art, nature and hash could compare the ideology of greed to the ideology of peace and love.

On a side note, I just discovered your blog, Old Hippie, and am looking forward to diving right in. Your posts are insightful and incredibly informative. Thanks!

Thank you for your very kind words.  They do help, at least for this old hippie.
