Lot’s Of Weirdness Happening, Some think Too Much Of The Wrong Kind.
by The Old Hippie Because I Thought Seeing Truth Would Help, Obviously It Didn’t.

{-The Way Many Picture Me-}

Between "FOX, and its sycophantic friends" telling their nuts and morons, (their only believing viewers, which is obviously way too many Americans,) to go out an kill “patriotically,” and the MSM doing its job for the (basically just five) corporations that control 99% of the media of our nation now, and not for what the Founders referred to as “the common good” of its citizens.  Not to mention the control the war-profiteering, ‘healthcare,’ and ag-chem corporations, plus what the banks and Wall Street are doing to make matters worse, with their power over ‘our’ elected representatives in the executive and legislative branches.  We, the rational and reality based, are just basically fucked.  The only branch left that still seems to have a conscience left concerning the Constitution and Bill of Rights is the judicial, and even that branch is corrupted by the right side politically.

As I have observed before...  The planet is more crowded than ever, the global corporations have more power than ever, and “the-very-few” have more money than ever, with 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 people simply “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.

Redundant, I know...  But reality is reality, even if it sucks.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =  <  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.
