Oh, I Get It Now. . .

Unemployment...  8% During The Great Depression, Higher Now.
by The Old Hippie Because I Thought Seeing Truth Would Help, Obviously Not.

Within the reality of the economic destruction from the “allowed” open criminal theft, not to mention the “allowed” unconscionable war-profiteering, too many Americans still believe their jobs are safe...  Actually believe their lives won’t be destroyed by capitalism’s criminal-greed-hogs’ “allowed” theft of the entire national treasury.  Many other Americans could care less... the worse, the better...  Because it just means they are closer to being “Raptured.”

While in the face of this insanity, this continued allowing, and enhancing, of the theft by “our” elected representatives, and the-very-few...  “Americans” just keep allowing it, without real protest, without rational revolt...  My only conclusion is that many of my nation’s citizens are living a pathological denial.  A very dangerous denial of even their denial.

{-The Way Many Picture Me-}

Denial of the openness of the criminality of the theft by “the-very-few.”  Denial of the purposeful destruction of the Constitution over the past eight years by the criminal corporatists and their war-profiteering sycophants.  Denial of the reality of the level of danger from the manipulation of the purposefully dumb-downed “fundamentalists Evangelicals” for opportunistic political profit by the manipulators, the-very-few, their sycophants, and minions.

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

The following is reprised, because not much has really changed as far as the ongoing denial
of the insane “allowing” of the theft by the-very-few is concerned...

It, the insanity of the “allowing,” is getting worse, much worse.

Go look at all of the MSM’s headlines, at their websites, then compare what you see there with the reality as rationally reported by reality based independent news sites.

If that simple comparison doesn’t open ones closed eyes of denial, nothing will.

To help you remain sane, and not too deeply depressed, you should end your “session of reality” by stopping in at some of the better editorial humorists’ websites - It couldn’t hurt.

That is my main personal method of doing research for this blog - Check in with the right and the right’s insane, then study as much of the reality-based news sites as possible, then check in with the humorists.  I then sleep on it, do it again, and then post what I have learned, observed, or was stunned by, to first, share it, and second, to get it off my chest so that I can remain sane myself.  All the while, trying my best to keep a reality-based perspective in these historically insane times.

Yup. And WHY was this nation founded? Why the Revolution? Because of over-taxation and taxation without representation. Look up in your history books. At the turn of the century American taxation was about 10% of the GDP. It is now at over one third of the GDP. 18th century Americans paid far less taxes than we do currently. And our "representation" is scam.
