As AmpedStatus readers know, when I'm not analyzing, aggregating and summarizing the news, I'm conspiring with activists in hopes of launching a non-violent revolution to keep our society from collapsing into complete neo-feudalism. Yeah, yeah, that may sound a bit extreme to people who don't pay attention to what is happening, but as Tom Paine said, "Time makes more converts than reason." To say that this is a frustrating battle is an understatement. To keep my sanity in an insane world, sometimes I just close my office door and rant at the wall or scream at the TV. It always comes down to this one baffling question: How can people be so passive and apathetic as our future is going up in flames? W"T"F!

At this point, I usually need some comic relief. George Carlin always works! Bill Hicks will make you laugh at some deep truths. Bill Maher maybe, sometimes. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert on occasion, but they spend way too much time playing the divide and conquer status quo supporting court jester role. Their multi-million dollar contracts have dulled their edge, to say the least. But lately, every few days, I get the joy of watching Lee Camp rant for a few minutes. He delivers his blistering Moment of Clarity with much needed insight and passion. He actually makes me want to be a comedian. Maybe that's the only way to speak the truth in a way that can wake people up.

So here's a post in support of my long lost brother from another mother, who I never met. He is a bit stuck in the Democrat Vs Republican trap, but" he gets it. He speaks truth to power and makes enough funny pop cult references to make people understand the urgency of the moment.

Wake "em up Lee!
