This Is Also Your Truth...

Just Your Current Situation via Reality-Based Information...
by The Old Hippie Because You Keep “Allowing,” And Nothing else.

Read   -  “Branded”
      ...few of us will admit that we frequently succumb to salesmanship...
      In “Buying In,” Walker aims to lift the cloud of self-delusion.  Every
      indicator suggests we’re the shoppingest society that’s ever lived

  -  “The Roots of Obstruction”
      The reputation of the Congress would be very different had the Republican
      minority and George Bush not orchestrated a systematic campaign of
      obstruction to bottle up any progress.

One Tiny Step In The Right Direction...
[Very much too little - Very much too late - And most likely won’t be enforced.]

“House Panel Votes To Cite Rove For Contempt”

“A House panel Wednesday voted to cite former top White House aide Karl Rove for contempt of Congress as its Senate counterpart publicly pursued possible punishments
for an array of alleged past and present Bush administration misdeeds.”

Today’s “Truthdig” (linked) quote emphasizing my above parenthetical points...
“There’s still plenty of red tape keeping Bush’s Brain from a day of reckoning.  A full vote on the citation won’t happen—if it happens at all—until September, and by the time the lawyers get involved, George W. Bush will be back in Crawford whacking brush.”

“Evil as the Absence of Empathy.”

In the 2000 TV film “Nuremberg,” psychologist Gustav Gilbert says to the Head Prosecutor Robert Jackson, “I told you once that I was searching for the nature of evil.  I think I’ve come close to defining it: a lack of empathy.  It’s the one characteristic that connects all the defendants: a genuine incapacity to feel with their fellow man.  Evil, I think, is the absence of empathy.”  “Absence of empathy” is likewise “the one characteristic that connects” most of the immoral and misbegotten tenets of Bushism: that dogmatic mix of market absolutism, libertarianism, corporatism and simple greed that falsely describes itself as “conservatism.”
