Let Me Try And Get This Straight, Just So I Can Understand...
by The Old Hippie Because I Thought Seeing Truth Would Help, Obviously Not.

{-The Way Many Picture Me-}

The political right-wing is experiencing an unexpected power vacuum, and the extremists are moving in with gusto, with the help of FOX, who after openly, sneeringly, blatantly, profitably, backing the losers for the past eight years, are now so desperate they will, and are, through the sycophantic likes of Hannity, Beck, O'Reilly, Cavuto, Baier, et al, say anything, no matter how dangerous to this nation, to keep their ratings up.  (Profits before country, before life...)

To gain a deeper understanding of the increasing dangers of this uncontrolled power vacuum that is now filling fast with far-right extremists, see this excellently researched article.  Also see this article concerning the DHS report on increasing domestic extremism.  Both articles are worth reading.

This situation of the observed growth of dangerous manipulations of far-right extremists' paranoia, by FOX, and other financial, and ideological, profiteers is not just going to go away.  It is with us now.  It is much more dangerous to our “way of life” within this nation than even the Islamic fundamentalist terrorists are, and I am not diminishing the danger they pose either.

The planet is more crowded than ever, the global corporations have more power than ever, and “the-very-few” have more money than ever, and its inherent manipulable power that this stolen wealth possesses.  There is much less fresh water available to fewer people worldwide, and the supplies of it are diminishing with the melting of the glaciers planetwide.  Food supplies are short in many areas, more so than ever, and global ag-chem corporations are making the situation far worse, just for the short-term profits to themselves.

We are in a bad situation on this planet right now, a very bad situation indeed, and it is getting worse each day from many complex, and mind-numbing, and varied directions... Fundamentalism, ideology, corporatism, “opportunistic profiteering” of every conceivable kind, not to mention commodification of supplies of food, and water, and healthcare... are destroying much more than “just peoples lives” on this planet, which has been accurately described as... “Spaceship Earth.”

When the revolt comes, whether from the left’s reality-based reaction to the insanity, and/or from the right’s manipulated paranoia, and/or from simply people “refusing” to starve and thirst for someone else’s profits - It will be ugly.  Possibly more than just ugly.  I seriously hope I am long gone from this mortal coil when it finally happens.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =  <  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...  I will continue to reprise this... as long as the 'citizens' of my nation continue to “allow the allowing.”

It, the insanity, of the “allowing,” is getting worse, in fact it is much worse already.

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.
