Our problem is universal. The corporate interests are organized and the people are not. Why should taxpayers support SWAT teams to deny us basic freedoms? Are we more than brainwashed dummies?
Ron Paul got 10% of the vote in the primaries by urging us to rescue our Constitution. Every generation must fight for its freedom. 90% of voters are corporation slaves dummied up by food additives and GE/NBC.
The George Bush legacy: we can put anybody in prison to rot without trial. We have two millions of spaces in FEMA concentration camps to hold every corrupt official and Monsanto executive in the country. They can grow organic food in the prison yards.
Many White Folks Have Chosen the Route to Oblivion
The white Republican leadership thinks that "Barack the Magic Negro" is a proper theme song. Chip and Huck tell it like it is. The GOP deserves leaders who are straight in their white supremacy. Sooner or later, the Republican armchair Rambos will learn the lessons of three failed wars in Asia. White folks who insist on hogging the front of the bus have chosen the route to oblivion.
Barack the Magic Big Spender would have passed as political commentary. Referring to the next President by his race is beyond the Pale.
International Outrage is a Paper Tiger
We all oppose genocide. Occasionally, we send e-mails to the Congress and the UN. We made a thoughtful movie about 1994 Rwanda AFTER 800,000 human beings were in the graveyards. Angelina Jolie decries the genocide in the East Congo. In the last TEN years 5.4 MILLION have perished, 27,000 women and girls raped in 2008 alone. More recently 430,000 people have suffered pillage, rape and murder in Darfur. Nobody has made a serious effort to stop these outrages.
Unlike the other combatants, the Israeli leadership went on television to define what was happening in Gaza. They offered a legitimate exit strategy. If Hamas effectively stops the bombardment, Israel will allow needed supplies into the country.
The Hamas leadership responds with bombast and bombardment. They invite a land invasion because they believe Iranian-supplied anti-tank weapons will win the day.
This is the Palestinian mindset. After the beginning of the most recent truce, they continued to rocket Israel even as the supply trucks rolled in. They pointed to the relief trucks. They said to their people, "Do you see the gifts our attacks have brought you?"
The beggar bowl is out. Ignorant of the most fundamental chores of economic development, the Hamas freedom fighters feed the people with hand outs and propaganda. A cease-fire is only an opportunity to reload. The Hamas will fight till the last Palestinian is dead and then stuff Euros into suitcases for a tour of sunnier climes.
The PNAC and the intellectual pundits of the West believe they can bring the New World Order to Asia. Their method to install democracy was to kill 7.4 million Asians. Stubbornly, the people embraced capitalism, but they shunned the rest of it.
Stupidly, the Israelis swallowed the story line becoming a warfare/welfare state like the American model. Israel exists as a testing ground for military/industrial complex weaponry.
The Western commentators ignore the recent 13 million victims of genocide. They concentrate on 360 dead Palestinians knowing the Israelis, unique in the world, value human life.
It would be better for everyone if the West got out of Asia.
