It's time to cut the crap. We are in a war. All this political sound and fury signifies nothing. The 2004 "Democratic Congress" was filled with closet Republicans. Never in the history of our country, did we have such a collection of filth that spat on morality and rationality like the Nancy Pelosi types who were (and still are) dem puppets of George W. Bush.
And yet, even that is secondary to the self-evident theme of this paper. Forget television (corporate or otherwise), forget meaningless elections. Forget the duh-duh-duh "debates" -- unless your meds no longer put you to sleep. Also, forget nearly all forms of religious b.s. (not just the fundamentalists). Those guys in dresses and babblers in tents are barely primates, much less functionally intelligent children of the universe.
But most of all, forget the supreme smoke screen of our species: "politics." Life forms which take politics seriously are bound for extinction. Evolution is ultimately impatient with such consensus denial of reality. And yes, Virginia, reality IS within reach of advanced life forms (all over the universe). How could it be otherwise? This is our home. Sarah Palin airheads notwithstanding, the universe is not a Motel 6 we're just passing through on our way to comic book salvation or damnation.
Probably nothing is a better measure of the degree to which a random human is in touch with reality than knowing in your bones that "This is it." Ultimate realness is where we already are.
But alas, for the Sarah Palin's (and probably billions of religiosos) such knowing is equivalent to mind-blown insanity. Tough. The bubble heads who DON'T realize this are simply defective life forms which Evolution, in due course, will "select out."
But back to the supreme repression of America. Our country is now up to its neck in total war. And be careful, this isn't poetic imagery, this is LITERAL FACT.
Look, the elites, fascists, and religious fanatics aren't only killing us on a genocidal scale, they are robbing us blind and boiling our bones before they turn to the "assassination solution" (the international symbol of American society).
Exaggeration? Only human ostriches get to play the moronic and infinitely cowardly game that the God of War is not the God of American society.
