Leaving behind a treacherous government now addicted to perpetual war, its limitlessly greedy and power-lusting masters, as well as the retarded albeit smirky Republicans and their evermore clonish Democrat colleagues, a braindead electorate incapable of recognizing its own best interests, the hypocritical Christians who '"support our troops," and the tiresome, sloganeering and feckless activist-hobbyists, as well as those who profit from their plastic morality -- I now repair to my Jungle Home amidst the giant palmettos on a dirt road running east from the Gulf coast that neither the US Mail nor school buses dare assay, and there to gain the more decent and trustworthy company of the indigenous sand tortoises and rattlesnakes.

The Mass Atrocities We Allow and Pay For The question is: Why do we the citizens allow and pay for the war and the atrocities our military has committed in the Middle East for the past 15 years, a hemisphere and two seas from our beaches?

"LIZ: Do Not Run !" WHAT !!! There is a recent piece cruising the WEB with statements from contributors to Elizabeth Warren's senatorial campaign stating these same contributors would not support Warren but Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. What's this really all about?

Looking Amerika Politika in the Eye America is -- make that Americans are -- in trouble both here and around the world. But few are interested in our real problems, their actual causes and their effective, just and (dare I say it?) moral correction once the electioneering begins anew.

Wake Up Dim Demwits ! Progressives are catching on to the Democrat cadre's dodgy misrepresentation on the best interests of us "common" people. That includes the middle class as well as the less advantaged, of which, more of us have become more of them with every election of the past 34 years.

Amerika, Heal Thyself ! An activist friend advises we should beseech John Kerry to intercede to stop the US government from manipulating development aid to promote the interests of Big Agra at the expense of poor El Salvador farmers and the millions of families they support. This can't happen in El Salvador or anyplace else until we clean up our own house in the USA. The election of 2016 is an opportunity for finally a start in such direction.

Neglecting Jefferson, the Adams Boys, and Pogo Rest secure, my historical friends, we have not totally forgotten your wisdom, and with the more neglect and abuse surely to come upon us, we may yet rise again to merit your instruction.

"Run, Hillary, Run!" How long will it be before Hillary actually announces her candidacy? No doubt she'll run, but her plan is to await the time when the lines of partisanship and psychology join in apex on her strategy chart, which should not be too long after the tactic of the "Run, Hillary, Run!" chant is implemented -- sort of a make-me-do-it strategy, however plastic and obvious.

Our Unaffordable Bill of Rights Having reaped their mountain of lucre and gained unassailability from the laws of the land, our masters can no longer afford the threat posed by our Bill of Rights to protect the best interests of the mere citizens.

A Diminished "America" One can hardly recognize today the "America" we were taught in school and so highly respected.

The Fallacy of "Lesser-Evil" Choice Yet three years from the next national election, there is already the voicing of liberals (?) that we cannot chance supporting such as Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders lest we lose, therefore we must choose a "winner" rather than someone who actually exemplifies our ideals.

Political Remediation, Revolution, or Foreign Invasion? Well, certainly change there will be, but by what means?

Zomboid Partisans vs Intelligence, Decency and Survival Both of America's major political parties share in the guilt of the American treachery around the world and in the shredding of our Bill of Rights at home. American voters need to shed the leaden boots of partisan loyalty and get on to decent government unbeholden to greed meisters and their demands for atrocious means to self-serving ends.

Can America Survive Electioneering Propaganda? If there is yet any possible way to survive America's past thirty-odd years of its bought-and-paid-for governnent and its wretched impact abroad, then we must wake up to the treacherous tactics of the politicos to persuade our support and even to encourage our indifference.

Two Major Parties -- One Wretched Government With the Democrat elected representation's progressive -- make that unprogressive -- drift to the right, it seems to matter less and less which political party wins elections only to represent big-money advantages at the expense of the people's best interests.

How Do We Get People Into the Streets? A people will revolt but only when their condition becomes absolutely intolerable. That intolerability will become our salvation.

Bailing Out the "Bailout" There's a new message on the WEB: "The Must Read Book of 2012: Bailout". The author's gist is that fervent partisanship will not save the "republic" from a government bipartisanly indentured to greed interests.

Indentured Democrats are Hardly the Champions of the People ! On the rare and precious occasions when the real questions of War and Peace and of our ravaged Economy are asked of our government in such forums as the U.S. Senate, they seem to disappear into the mist that pervades the dome above a Democrat Senate-majority and the corridors of the Democrat Administration. And that appears to be just fine with the Dem boosters at the state and precinct levels.

Democrat and Republican "Reality Shows" Television's moronic song and dance extravaganzas, although quite silly, lack the potential to inflict serious damage anywhere near that of their political equivalents.

"We Have Met the Enemy, and It is Wal-Mart!" Serious questions here that America is unable to influence companies that exploit children and violate the basic human rights of their workers. What! In the world's most powerful nation! Who's kidding who? And why?
