Remember when you could be afraid of just heights or maybe spiders? Now we have the ‘phobia’ fear cropping up everywhere. If you are afraid of something it’s a ‘phobia’. Researchers a delving much deeper into the psyche of the American mind and finding out we’re all just a little bit (if not a lot) crazy. How many people dope-up just to get through the day, and it’s legal. There was a time when doping up meant you were buying crack from the dealer or shooting heroin in the back alley. Not any more! Get your fix from the local pharmacist with an overpriced prescription.
So what are we afraid of? Muslims? Wouldn’t that be Muslimaphobia? The media has taken it a step further and called it Islamaphobia. The fear of everything Islam. Sure, it makes sense to be afraid of something you don’t understand or has been represented by a few extremists. It just makes us think that if the media had been around during the Crusades, what would the media coverage be like? “Today in Northern Spain the Catholic religious right massacred over 4,000 non-believers and quickly converted another 10,000 by torture.” – Ah, yes… the media.
So where does the fear come from? Is it our deep inner insecurity and disbelief of our own self? Are we too hung up on other people that we don’t see ourselves for who we really are? Are we that much better than everyone else we condemn before seeking the truth? We don’t think so. We just think the American population doesn’t care enough to be concerned with whatever else is going on in the world. Why should we? We’ve got our own problems. We have a president who has to fight to prove he is not a Muslim and was born in the United States. We have a talk show host who has become the national voice of the American God. We have the ‘chosen few’ who are better than everyone else and above the law… We say bring back the Crusades. At least if you couldn’t defend yourself you died or converted… at least you had a choice.
He had a dream. God told him to go before the reflection pool and tell the world how he is the next savior of America. 300,000 supporters, scores of speakers and even an angelic choir; all in the hopes to get Americans to stand-up, fight the political bureaucracy, and take over a country that once they owned. Ah, the smell of shit in the morning. We’re ready for the heavens to open up and for the almighty being to reach down and raise Glenn Beck to the heavens, kill all of the doctors and scientists who are using embryonic stem cells for research and send the damn foreigners back to wherever they came from….
Ah, the good old days when you couldn’t get away with calling someone a Nazi Socialist without being arrested . Back in the day when being called a communist could get you killed unless you were with other communists. Back in the day when you could ‘duck and cover’ and think you were really going to be safe. Back in the good old days when men were men and sheep were scared.
Now we have this. A march on Washington D.C. for the disgruntled Americans who didn’t have the balls to do something when things were going to hell because they couldn’t see the trees for the forest. Its alright to support a party that is based on the start of the American Revolution. Who wants to pay taxes anyway… especially for tea. So now we have (appropriately named) the Tea Party – an offshoot of the morally righteous republicans who have decided to ‘step-up’ and change the United States of America. Good for you.
Here’s a suggestion: Impeach Obama (I’m sure you can find something that will stick since it didn’t for Clinton), put one of your own Teacupers in the big house and change things. With all of the cooperation going on from both sides of congress and the senate, it ought to be easy. Or here is a better idea: Get your guns (I’ll explain it so you might be able to understand it – Git’r guns), and start shooting everyone who you don’t like. You can start with the immigrants. Go to Arizona (or Florida, or California, or Texas, or Michigan or any state for that matter) and start picking off the ones that shouldn’t be here. Then go for the politicians who don’t make the laws to enforce them. Then shoot some doctors and scientists ” ’cause thems all killers…” and finally maybe a school teacher or two because “they didn’t edumicate me no good.”
The American people have spoken… again. This time they have secured themselves even further in to the anally rectal part of decency. Conservative Tea Party? Liberal Republican? Wishy-washy Democrat? We’ve got them all… coming soon to a political party near you.
You would think at some point, the ass-minded self serving voters would open their eyes and smell their own shit, but it hasn’t happened yet. Unforgivably it probably never will. No matter what side you place your hat, it seems that common sense is over-ridden by personal and self-imposed morality that founded this nation. Remember, we were founded by a group of self righteous puritans who believed they were better than everyone else. Things haven’t changed in over 300 years.
The Republicans take the moral high ground and want to impose it on everyone else. The Democrats want to loosen the morality strings and let hedonism be the mantra. The Tea Party wants to shove barbarism and bigotry down the throats of those who wont listen, louder than everyone else. The Green Party is to wimpified to stand up to its own bleiefs. What’s left? If the american revolution were to happen today, half of the country would site lide and watch the other half terrorize, pillage and murder. Alright… maybe more than half.
Is ignorance and apathy the only way American society can function? If you’re against gay marriage, you’re homophobes. If you’re against abortion, you’ve never been raped. If you believe Obama was the only president to spend billions, look back six months before he was elected. If you think immigration is a problem, look at your own family tree. Wake up America! You’re not better then everyone else, even though you think you are.
Here we go again. Are you ready for some bullshit? The time has come for the proverbial shit to hit the fan. All of the mud-slinging, lies, dirt digging and “misrepresentation” drudged up by the opponents have been presented. Anyone who thought they had a shred of dignity going into any political race has now lost it, and no matter who the candidate or what they are running for, it will all be lost among the traitorous lies and corruption to follow.
We dare anyone (ANYONE) to post a politician, either past or present, who has not been involved in bribery (you might call them lobbyists), pork belly budget busting, personal gain (for themselves or community or business constituents) or just personal self interest. I dare you! You’ll be hard pressed to find someone. You say Lincoln? Didn’t he have his own agenda and gain from his exploits? Washington? Come on! Give us something with some teeth and flesh still hanging out of the mouth…
So the offer is open. Find someone. Then ask the political party who they work for… Then the private parties who fund the victory. Then what? Give us something… some shred of hope for democracy. We doubt you can find it, but the offer is on the table.
