Corporate Brand Obama - The 'Kill List' Assassin

 

"The madness of this course, we believe, is admitted now...but we fear the lesson is wholly lost on our present ruler."

 --Frederick Douglass, from his speech, What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?

 

"The challenge remains. On the other side are formidable forces: money, political power, the major media. On our side are the people of the world and a power greater than money or weapons: the truth."

 --Howard Zinn

 

The truth is that at this moment of time in this, the 21st century, the vast majority of everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people in the United States are de facto slaves. That's right - slaves.

 

We are slaves to the psychological, economic, and physical dictates of a self-legitimized organized corporate/military crime syndicate known as the United States government. Our bondage is not only economic, it is mental, and is supported by constantly tweaked tyrannical and unjust laws and extremely brutal police forces throughout this nation. Our slavery is further reinforced by a corporate owned and controlled "news" media that is as pathetic as it is insidious.

 

Unfortunately, much of 'Black America' exists in a vacuum of delusion and has yet to heed the burning significance of Harriet Tubman's words, when she said, "I freed a thousand slaves - I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves."
