Hope Yours Is “Allowed” To Be Happy.
It’s My 62rd Fourth, And It’s My Most Worried-About-The-Future One So Far.

by Joel Pett

My “worried-about”?  The fact that you allowed this, and are still allowing much more than this, and you will continue to allow. . .  Without any real effort to punish anyone.  Not one person has been fired or punished in any way what-so-ever for any of the destruction of the last 10 years.

Not one - Think about it - You are a nation of cowardly allowers.

The corporatists know you better than you do.  Why do you think they don’t even attempt to hide their bored disdain of you?  Seriously - Think about it, (since obviously you haven’t so far.)

Why the fuck do you keep “allowing” your own, (and the rest of ours,) destruction?!?

Hi Old Hippie! I have followed your site for years and never made a comment. Then i lost the link for a while and then i just found it again- so i feel i must comment to you. First off- you got a great site. i do love all the links and the positive things you say. You are awesome. THAT said-

Well maybe i ought to tell you about me. i'm 49 years old- a generation i guess away form you- but close enough to have remembered a lot of the shit that went on in the 60s and 70s, and it made me a liberal and nearly a hippie for most of my life. i smoked pot, supported liberal causes and voted for democrats RIGHT up to 2004. THEN came Obama...

Do you sense where i'm going with this? Well in a nut shell- he got elected and everyone believed the hype. i never did. And now i can't stand him- and I'm not a liberal anymore!

WTF happened? all I know is i NOW feel about Democrats and their lies the same way as you probalby do about Republicans and their lies. I'm tired of the lies. I wish we lived in a hippie universe- but it seems like we were lied to all along!

And NOW the Gulf oil leak is going to destroy Us all! I live in Florida 35 miles from the ocean- and i tell you this is a HUGE fucking deal. i blame Obama. Absolutely I do. I expect the oceans to be destroyed and life on earth dead in five years - becuse of him and his slack liberal attitudes- which i trace unfortunatley back to you and the hippies.

I don't mean to be obnoxious- but dude- don't you feel USED by Obama? Don't you think he lied to you and every other liberal and hippie to get in power and has now used all the liberal and hippie causes to make a police state worse than Bush or Nixon or Reagan? Dude - he won't even legalize pot! WTF is up with that?

No- i think we have been lied to by both sides of the government and you Hippiea have paid a terrible price. Hippie liberals hate the country that they live in- and they hate the government. And all they are left with is bitterness as the world slowly dies. The Beatles were wrong. All you need is not Love. Its something else- its POWER, and MONEY and GUNS. Maybe then we could wipe our the greedy fuckers who have destroyed out world.

Anyway. thats my take on it. What do you think?

It did not start with Obama.  It began a long time ago.  Every civilization has fought against the encroaching power of corporations from the very beginning, starting back in the Roman republic.

The corporatists hit the jackpot with the court reporter’s notes that became law in the 1886 Supreme Court case of Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad, where corporations were given their first “legal” status as a “citizen”.

Then there were the robber barons of the late 1800’s/early 1900’s which produced the Great Depression.

Then cane Bush Jr., in whose 8 year administration made corporation more “citizen” than human citizens, and in whose administration the corporatists took over all of the federal regulatory agencies with their ex-CEOs, lobbyists, sycophants, etc...

They were able to, and allowed to, completely change the entire structure of the United States governmental structures so that they were now protected from us, instead of us protected from them.

All of this was before Obama won in 2008.

Yes - Obama has proven to be a blatant liar, like the rest of the corporatists, but he was long after all the damage had been done, and long-long after all of the allowing by the citizens had cemented the destruction.

Too turn all of your rage onto Obama, who only maintains the already done damage by those who came before, that actually did the damage... is naïve at best, and allowing those who deserve your rage to escape punishment again, and to reap the rewards of their murderess theft.

They will continue to live in luxury you can’t even begin to imagine, and will continue to be “allowed”, by you, to gain even more wealth, and power to oppress your ability to strike back at them.

Haven’t you noticed they can no longer hide their disdain of you, nor even to suppress their public sneers at you for attempting to do anything real to stop, much less punish, any of them?

Yes - Obama does deserve your rage for his blatant lies, but he is only one cog in a large sociopathic corporatist profiteering machine.

If those who came before are not punished, what use is there in punishing the current maintainers, sycophants, collaborators... as they will only be replaced by those that escape the punishment.

There is little hope at this stage, outside of real revolution, to save the once great democracy of the United States of America.
