A Simple Story
Today in the salon my nails were being done by a new lady. She was older. I’d guess mid to late sixties.
Husband just passed on six months ago.
The State of the (Occupied) Union Address
48 hours ago i found myself at a private get together with a small group of sincere and patriotic individuals representing a variety of different factions of what has become known as “The Global Occupy Movement.” Barely on my own accord I caught my mind daydreaming, planning even, a move out of the United States. Both for the safety of my family – due to the rapid pace the country has transformed into a police state, and to escape the incessant materialism running rampant through the American psyche. The thought only lingered for a few minutes, getting interrupted by the passionate discourse erupting around me.
The following evening i received a cryptic text message from Father Bloopy asking me if i was “intuitively feeling a need or desire to leave the United States”. The coincidence intrigued me
recently suggested that I’d love that to be true, but I’m actually feeling it before then. Remember the 2008 US presidential election campaigns? All that infighting, bickering and trumped up manufactured “news” & drama? The mysterious 24 hour disappearance of Obama & Clinton when they secretly snuck away to meet the Bilderberg Group? McCain & Palin shouting “Joe the plumber” ad nauseum as if they’re minds had been taken over by daft robots? That was child’s play compared to what we’re about to see come January. These new Repugs arent even recognizably human they’re so mean insensitive & out of touch. And that’s not even the real problem. The Dem WH (and Congress) has steadily & systematically shut down the entire Occupy movement all over the country, city by city, right under the nose of the entire world, illegally arresting thousands of innocent Americans both famous & not, while openly inciting violence & encouraging people’s revolutions in numerous other countries. It’s an odd anomaly, disturbing to watch; with no apparent solution in sight other than repeated & continual acts of peaceful non-violent civil disobedience & protests nationwide. Problem is, it doesn’t appear that there r enough citizens awake yet to reach the kind of critical mass necessary to reclaim our freedoms and basic rights. The few who are get beat up shot at & immediately picked up and thrown into large armored police vehicles. The Lizard King himself may speak eloquently about liberty and democracy w his words, but his actions speak much louder. If I had to guess I’d say the strategy is to train the populace into a quiet submission out of fear through physically & visually demonstrating that there is a zero tolerance policy toward any kind of mass assemblies by the people. With the EU mysteriously imploding economically, the American people can no longer count on former European alies to assist us in any meaningful manner if we do eventually decide to take to the streets en masse and take the country back. By the time the well meaning but ill informed Tea Party folks realize that they’re actually in the same boat as the OWS folks, it will be too late. The speed at which the current administration has put down the notion that the citizenry have a right to freely assemble & protest for as long as they deem necessary has been alarmingly fast, indoctrinating a meme in American society that seems to state that any sort of unrest, whether for just cause or not, is improper or illegal and will not be tolerated. Hence most right thinking but cautious and rightfully self protective people opt to sit on the sidelines and not leave their homes. Ironically the money being used to pay the police officers to battle their fellow citizens and neighbors in their own backyards is coming from the same people being beat up, shot at and arrested.
