Regardless ... it's a bloodbath.

From the Koch brothers et al, their candidates, all the way down to the blank, staring faces of the "voters" immobile in front of their wide-screen TV sets, it's a dead world, run by zombies. As the redneck sheriff in the first Dead film said, "Yeah, they're dead. They're all messed up."

The prevailing malformed ideas are as lifeless as the death machine that spawned them. A sane person ... someone who is actually alive ... would protect our water, land, and air from the shambling elite committed to irrevocably destroying everything necessary for us to live.

And one by one dropped the revelers in the blood-bedewed halls of their revel, and died each in the despairing posture of his fall. ... And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all."

With that happy thought ...

Some 45 years ago I became aware of the fact that the government of The United States was trying to kill me. I wasn't paranoid or anything. I mean I knew the government wasn't out to kill me personally. They just wanted to kill as many Vietnamese (more...)
