Eleven Days...

I Think The American People Are Finally ‘Over-Them’ - - -
by The Old Hippie Because It Seems Most Of Them Are Going To Be Voted Out.

{-The Way Many Picture Me-}

Eleven days....  I stopped posting eleven days ago to watch this national shift of attitude of our body politic.  An almost celebratory “we are over-them, and we’re gonna throw them out.” attitude.  Even though it is way-too late, and way-too little in way of correction and punishment, I have to admit... it is great to watch anyway.

Two videos of a single interview; Part I and Part II of a very recent REALnews, (Oct. 22nd,) interview with Noam Chomsky...  It clearly explains our current collective reality -

Well worth any American’s time - Enjoy...

Part I - On voting the lesser of two evils -

Part II - On the current economy -

If you do not understand that both major American parties, the Republicans and the Democrats, are to the right of the "lower 99.9%" of Americans’ wants and needs - The Republicans being obviously much-much further to the right than the Democrats - Then you are doomed to be manipulated - - - As you have been since before the Republican-era of the robber barons and their purposeful Great Depression, and more specifically since they put Reagan in the Oval office.

The last eight years have been a real “kick-in-the-teeth” lesson, haven't they?  For over 60 years after the Republicans last had power to steal the nation blind, during the robber barons era, the American people simply did not let them (the Republicans) have power again - But then, like so many peoples in history, their children and grandchildren “forgot”... Then the thieves of the-very-few got their sycophants back in power with the Reagan administration, and the cycle of robbing the nation blind began again, only this time the effects and affects of their greed had/has more than national consequences - They had/have global consequences - Environmentally in particular.

The damages caused by these past eight years of blatant, sneering, sociopathic greed by the Republicans-run-amok, is, in many areas, already beyond ‘mitigation,’ much less fixable.

The saddest part?  The very-few got the money, and they will again be “allowed” to keep it.

If the nation survives, (and considering how successfully they've ‘dumbed-down’ the masses since Reagan, it is debatable,) I wonder how long it will be before the American people again ‘forget,’ and again ‘allow’ the Republicans to have uncontrolled [deregulated] control of the governmental structures, and uncontrolled [deregulated] access to the treasury, again?  Three generations?  Possibly two?  One?  Do you even care?
