5.Rapists on the prowl


Oh yes, Washington Post reported something horrible! Afghan security forces torture people!  Of course, it is not our fault; our media is so appaled!   Pundits, one after another  talk about 'Our men and women dying  while our allies in Afghanistan are unreliable and corrupt.' Oh yes!  What happens to the man who rapes a woman and then he is told that it was not his fault at all, that she was a whore anyway, that she deserved it, that she was dirty  and he  just was there to clean her up?  He becomes a serial rapist. WE invaded Afghanistan. WE killed their people. WE still are killing their people. WE imposed their current government. WE  imposed torture. WE are plundering and raping. And here our media transforms us into  serial rapists telling us that it is not our fault and that  we are  the good guys and that the raped one has to clean herself and get tidy.

6. 'I did not do it' government


- Advertisement -

I have never seen a government  like ours before.  Its main message is  'I did not do it and I am not doing it and I will not do it'. It is a government of  a defensive denial. It denies any plans to use tax money. It denies  any plans to regulate industry. It denies   that it likes its own laws. It denies any obligations towards people. It denies  any consistent economic policy. It denies its own role. It is a government of malicious eunuchs if I ever saw ones. This government  denies the decision- making process. It denies its own existence.


7.  Howling by proxy


According to  some state laws now   we have a man-hunt open season on illegal immigrants. Anyone who helps them is in trouble too.  Of course, media just presents it as  a pure states' issue.  Just like  it was before the Civil War. The actual   issue that   the man-hunt  had become an overall  populus occupation in which everyone has to participate is  avoided in the media at any cost.  What a compassion!  We like to hunt people but we love them anyway.    That's our nature, right?  This is a Halloween month and if  there is a place where people go to the Church by day and become werewolves by  night-this is the place, ours.

8.  Foreign Policy


US had not even noticed that she had become a rogue state. She is only invited when it  cannot be avoided, like bombing Libya, for instance. Otherwise people avoid the US like a plague.  Other countries are active in discussions and cooperation without us. US  State Department  has no honest employees remaining and is engaged only in threats and chipization of documents. US foreign service people are not respected anywhere- they are in fact  considered  a source of harm.
