Long before we built that, schemes for distracting scenarios were conjured up like witch's brew. Our TV ads skillfully inoculated fear of Liberal boogey men and ERA women -- convincing the gullible with the lies we told them to tell themselves. Now they worship at the altar of bad hair asses, Jersey bullies in yoga pants and loud mouths of media politics.
At last, life was a grand old party! No more need for burning crosses, OK Corral in Dealey Plaza or defending oil spills, for we were the fossil fuel of dragons. Having internalized Cain and Abel, we were the keepers of our brothers and sisters, and despite an 1865 setback, we rose again.
Benedict Arnold, Andrew Jackson and Aaron Burr disciples, we applaud any sitting VP immune from prosecution for murdering a poor immigrant, or waterboarding. We'd arrived. Our money could make money off those with no money, by investing other people's money in private prisons, which our rented governors and prosecutors would populate with mass incarceration.
Long ago original good intentions, morphed into gradually diminishing unknowing patients with unnecessary, overpriced pharmaceuticals -- everything from Statins to a few Dr. Farid Fata types.
Admittedly, as catalyst and benefactor of the Great Recession, we expected increasing numbers seeking escape in alcohol, cigarette and even food addiction to fuel our fortunes. Still nothing topped our CIA conjugal Contra Cocaine Drug War trafficking.
Now, we few filthy rich, stare down from Mars at what's left of a simmering might have been -- while those engaged in water wars and food fights, still can't imagine it wasn't so much what we did that betrayed them, but what they themselves ignored.
Decades before the weaker sex evolved its inferiority into superiority and invaded the canyon of heroes, declaring victory of the human spirit, and sexual freedom to be or not to be Wonder LGBT Women on national late night TV -- it was decided, our puppets may not be able to preserve our meticulously cultivated gender economic status quo.
With the possible election of the first female president, our world was flip-flopping: gay coffee beans forcing the cream that rose to the top, out of the straight and narrow winner's cup. We were not willing to lose control of the balance of man's power, to a former rib. If we had, like minorities overcoming our majorities, women would expect their heroic Herstory to be included in the half never told.
How could such acceleration of equitable information rise to challenge we who managed the manipulation of earth's climate?
Well before 21st century Wall Street, K Street and Government Menage, we oppressed thinking, with distracting misinformation formulae. Okay so, all lives matter, and all men are born equal, but women, like Serena and Hillary, rising to the top!?!
Do the millions of 99% minions even have a clue that infrastructure is more than bridges and potholes, and American immigrants built everything from railways to Internet? No little girls, and until they do, old white men will keep your infrastructure, by depleting earth's resources -- pumping black gold profits into our pockets -- until the dimming of your rainbow.
Children, computer data security of OPM, NYSE, United Airlines et al, Antiquated Electric Grids, Redistricting, earth's natural resources, the animal kingdom and immigrants are America's Infrastructure.
From Mars, I confess: It wasn't ISIS, but war profiteering; not Lone Wolves, but insider trading traitors. It was failure to give back, or give a damn.
It was us. It was you.
