Wrathful by The world of Dante
Whatever the government will do to them
they will also do to you, remember that. Keep that close to your
American heart and then think about this. Somewhere, someplace in
some grimy factory some poor slobs work nights and weekends for low
pay and no benefits making bullets to kill people. Innocent people,
the bullets they don't know the difference and the politicians they
just don't care.
Shocking? Yes, shock is the only emotion left in the American tool box. To vomit upon the altar or piss on the Queen's leg, a multi-level media colossus designed to numb and pacify the beasties inside ourselves and to hide them from ourselves with low grade gutter humor and underage titillation. Pilger misses the mark, for while he shows us how easily and skillfully the American public can be duped, he fails to understand the primal American bloodlust, the viciousness or the one dimensional mean spiritedness of the modern American nature.
American's watch Fox news because they like being lied to, American's like their news stories framed as either good guys or bad guys. They don't want to be forced to think or beleaguered with facts. Keep it simple, USA! USA, they want to be polarized. They vote Republican because they don't like liberals but lo and behold there aren't any liberals any more. Democrats vote Democratic because they don't like the Republicans, but even as Democratic office holders sell them out by adopting Republican positions they still vote Democratic because they just don't like Republicans even if they can't tell the difference.
Screwed into the ground like a dog stake, the American's people wait anxiously for the chance to vote between Spaghetti O's or Beefaroni. During the Republican Gong Show the other night Ron Paul asserted that if the U.S. would simply return to a medieval gold standard our economy would grow by fifteen percent every year. An incredulous display of insanity by a group of individuals unqualified to baby sit house cats. Presented with a straight face by moderators earning six figure salaries to not tell the public what they know and repeated as legitimate opinions by those who know better.
From the TSA website- "TSA continually evaluates the latest threats and screening measures which are implemented based on the latest intelligence. As always, passengers may notice a variety of security measures at U.S. airports to include the use of physical bag checks, random gate screening, explosives detection technology, canine teams and behavior detection officers. We ask the traveling public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the authorities."
"Behavior detection officers," what a nice euphemism for secret police, just as indefinite detention mirrors concentration camp or gulag. Enhanced interrogation is torture but this is America, isn't it? We only torture and send those off to concentration camps that really deserve it. Our behavior detection officers are the best trained in the whole wide world of behavior detection officers but still, it is most important that they can depend on you, to live in fear, and to turn in your neighbors on command.
Last November, the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) issued a decision that called for an election among TSA employees to determine whether a majority of officers wished to form an exclusive union. Administrator Pistole's determination allowed this election to move forward after he laid out specific terms for limited, clearly-defined collective bargaining agreement within a framework consistent with TSA's security mission. The union can represent the employees in any issues which don't involve,
Security policies, procedures or deployment of security personnel or equipment.
Pay, pensions and any form of compensation
Aren't you glad you voted Democratic? The Republicans never would have allowed these poor, dumb, surf Nazi bastards to form their own union. Under the Obama administration however, they can stand tall and in international solidarity with all of their brothers and sisters in surf Nazi unions everywhere and collectively bargain for what color wall paper goes up in the break room.
America is a land of illusion, the illusion of being in a union. An illusion of a free press, where anyone who gains a foot hold on the Internet will be sawed off with cash because money is their weapon of mass deception. You're not an employee anymore; you're a team member, an associate or a human resource. You're a piece of chewed bubble gum and if you get stuck in the shoes of the state you will be treated as such.
It was also announced that The Federal Reserve's New York manufacturing index dropped from positive 11 to negative 7.8. It had been anticipated the index would rise to 12 this month. At zero the index is considered be an indication of a business contraction. What was the big story on CNN? Greeks hurling Molotoff cocktails at surf Nazis or US manufacturing strikes iceberg? No, the big story on CNN was the release of John Edwards mug shot followed by Hugh Hefner being jilted by his twenty five year old fiance'e.
Meanwhile Saudi and Bahraini troops shoot down demonstrators demanding democracy in their streets. Syria opens fire on its own people with tanks and artillery and then massacres its soldiers who refuse to open fire on civilians as Obama warns the Palestinians against statehood. The silence of the American government supports these massacres. The sale of billions of dollars in US weaponry to the Saudi's and Israeli's and Bahraini's enables them. We cannot divest ourselves from the dead bodies created through our government's actions anymore than we can separate the blood from the blood money.
