Just A Few Thoughts...
by The Old Hippie Because Sometimes Even “Allowing” Americans Have To Stop And Think.
- America is the only 1st world, or 2nd world, or westernized, nation that uses a for-profit healthcare system, and yet its quality is rated far below almost all of the others.
- At least 89 humans were killed, most while being tortured in American military prisons, verified by the Pentagon.
- Almost all available guns, and their ammunitions, have been sold out nationwide.
- Billions of dollars from life insurance policies on the “lowly” workers are being used to pay the corporations’ “elite” executives’ incredibly outlandish pensions, even if the corporation is losing stock value, or even going bankrupt.
- Others are being paid directly from the taxpayer funds given to the corporations to “save the too big to fail” company, not to pay undeserving outlandish executive pensions. And, so far, absolutely no one has done anything “real” to stop them.
- Credit card percentage rates are now reaching almost 40%, on most citizens, even those that responsibly pay on time, not that paying late would in any way justify an almost 40% apr... and this usury is being not only allowed by “our” representatives, but it is even being supported by the laws they vote in, even as they publicly speak out against such practices by the corporatists.
- “Free-Speech Zones” are still legal... In America... The land of the free.
- America has the highest percentage of its citizens in prisons, and the highest actual number of its citizens in prisons, more so than any other nation on this planet, and more so than in the entire written history of the planet, and almost all are in for-profit private corporate prisons.
- Absolutely no one has been even “investigated,” much less punished, for any of these criminal, and purposefully created, and profitably manipulated mess of crimes... At least so far.
Are you “thinking” about those facts, and many more that you know you know about, and that you did allow. In many cases, like the global warming “debate,” (“...our product is doubt...”) or the fact all of the “criminals” ... political and corporatist and the-very-few ... are living in abject luxury at such an insane level that it is completely beyond even the wildest imaginings of almost
all Americans in the lower 99% bracket of “income.”
What part of the wealth-transfer theft, the largest theft, (by a very small group of people,) of an entire nation’s wealth, do you just not understand?
Is it that you believe you are part of them, or is it that you think that you will benefit somehow from their theft, or that you actually think they will allow you into their protected enclaves when the destructive effects and affects of their theft, and their criminally greedy short-term-profit-taking, and criminal war-profiteering, reach you and yours?
And now, even our “audacity of hope and change” president, is turning out to be a “continue the protection” politician. and yet, as far as I can tell, (and I am seriously no one special, but I do pay attention,) the “allowing of the allowing” by my fellow “citizens” continues to continue, without real protest, without revolt, without...?
All of the founders of this nation, that openly worried about this worst case scenario of national destruction of the democracy from within... Were correct to worry after all, for it has happened, and it is still being allowed to progress as I type this.
