It Continues To be Allowed To Get Worse Yet, And Still, You Allow...
by The Old Hippie Because Seeing Truth Didn’t Help, Nor The Resultant Pain Of The Truth.

{-The Way Many Picture Me-}

What can anyone say?  After all that we Americans have “allowed” since 1886, when a court reporter’s headnotes, not the court's decision, in the Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad Supreme Court case gave “personhood” status to corporations.  Which has, over the years, been expanded, again and again, until now corporations hold the status of an actual “citizen.”  It, and it alone, has allowed the slow corporate take-over of the government of this nation, and with its growing “power to influence”... even the very mindset, of our citizens, has been transformed from “the common good” into “get what I can get for me and mind, and fuck everyone else.”  Profit, over any other consideration, even life itself, whether it be money, power, ideology, or a combination of all three, is the only winning way to think, otherwise you are a loser. A far-left radical, below contempt.

It also has allowed the creation of the military-industrial-congressional-complex.  It also allowed the “flag follows corporations,” rather than the “business follows flag,” in our nation’s foreign affairs, as Gen. Butler emphasized in 1934 in his revealing of the “Business Plot” by the wealthy industrialists of that time.  It allowed the creation the military-intelligence community that reached such a point of paranoia and corporate profits over common good, that this nation’s citizens allowed them to be able to murder a president, and get away with it, because that president, his brother, and Rev. King were close to turning the mindset to the nation’s common good, and away from flag-follows-corporations in all of our foreign affairs.  It allowed, beginning with the illegal selection of G. W. Bush by a corrupt Supreme Court in 2000, three straight corrupt national elections, without real protests or revolt.  It allowed the slow take-over of this nation’s diversified mass media to finally allow just a handful of corporations, with very strong ties to the military-industrial-complex, and other corporations, through their boards of directors, to the point that now, these very-few corporations have almost total control of the flow of information to the masses.

It allowed, that one moment in 1886 when a court reporter’s headnotes took precedence in law over the court’s own decision in the case, the corporatists, during the eight years of the Bush administration, to completely infiltrate, and take-over all of this nation’s federal regulatory agencies, and to completely deregulate all citizen’s protections from any and all abuses by the corporations in their fervor to get profits, even over life itself.  It allowed them to start illegal wars, it allowed them to redefine torture as something legal, it allowed them to destroy the environment with impunity...  All of it. . .  In our collective names, because we continue to allow...

And finally it allowed them to complete the largest wealth transfer of a nation’s wealth in written history, now passing 4.7 trillion dollars, and growing, (now predicted to help the 1-percenter's profits to reach 23 trillion dollars,) without the citizens doing much more than yawning, no real protests, no real in-the-streets anger, and no citizen’s revolt...  quite simply... they were allowed to get away with all, are still being allowed to get away with it all, by the citizens of this nation.  Still.  Being.  Allowed. . .  By you.

“Have a nice day.  :-)”

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.

I can live and die with a clear conscience in knowing that I've not only done my part, but I've done the part of several thousand who did not know how or care to do their part. I've been in the front lines fighting for human rights on reservations opposing uranium extraction and coal extraction on First People's soil, for the Leonard Peltier's of the world, the Mumia Abu Jamal's of the world,the alternative energy movement, the pro-peace movement, the pro-environmental movement. I've walked in Peace Marches across this country, and across my town. I've knocked on people's doors from coast to coast for years for GreenPeace when there was such a thing as a canvass. I've participated in non-violent direct actions in the US and abroad. I've even brought my brand of activism to classrooms and assembly halls, stood on street corners with placards, signs, and armed with petitions. I've done all this and more all in hopes of arousing the magic 20% of the population to affect change, and usher in a new era. Well, a new era is indeed being ushered in. Its an era where the richest 1% of the world cannot escape or hope to escape. The planet is affecting the changes that will change the course of human existence for centuries, maybe even millenia to come. As for me, well, I haven't given up. I still attempt to get the attention of the puppets in government. I still attempt to wake up the sleeping survivors at my work and in my community by turning them onto the Noam Chomsky's and the David Korten's and the Howard Zinn's and the Arundhati Roy's, and the 350 group's works. Now @ 51 I look to see who the new faces will be that will carry the torch when I am long gone and my bones turn to dust. I think the planet will take care of itself, as it has long done. I'm grateful that the human race has been contained to this spehere, for had we been able to escape from this 200 mile gravity well and found a way to survive to explore and conquer new worlds, we truly would have been a threat to all the rest of Creation. We're still too infantile as a species to be able to take on such a huge responsibility. Keep up the good work until your last breath,I know I will.
