As Tubularsock has mentioned before, Donald Trump is the symptom as well as the result of an America that has fallen off the tracks.
Any country that spends its time at war and not at peace is a sick country.
Americans have been willingly led down the primrose path by leaders that really don’t have the general interest of the “people” at heart.
EVERYTHING has been corporatized and that is epitomized by Citizens United!
The very first give away is when something is entitled with the term “Citizens” …… yes, a dead give away!
That ALWAYS means that a real citizen isn’t within a thousand mile radius of the pronouncement.
Now, of course here is a Tubularsock aside: Have you ever wondered what would happen if the poor would form a Corporation?
They could infinitely expand their lifestyle incomes with golden parachutes and fly first class all with smiling politicians bending over backwards with shit eating grins handing out new installments of corporate welfare checks WITHOUT the stigma of getting a hand out from the government!
Rather cool, RIGHT? Or LEFT …….. is there a real difference anymore? Not that Tubularsock has noticed.
Well shit! Another Tubularsock aside! (Can Tubularsock EVER stay on topic?)
Have you noticed that the RIGHT, whatever that is, is ALWAYS being goaded by the fear of “left-thinking”, whatever that is, and the LEFT, whatever that is, is ALWAYS being goaded by the fear of “right-thinking”, whatever that is?
But at the same time the power structure continues its agenda, whatever that is, to the point that if you really stop and look at it ………. something is being directed here without our consent.
For example, every time a poll is taken of the general public’s view about the U.S. going to war a resounding number of American citizens say NO TO WAR!
Yet ………. we have been at war THAT WE HAVE CAUSED for the last fifty plus years!
Oh sure, it’s called another name. You know, like a “Police Action”. That was what the Korean War was called AND IT’S NOT OVER YET!
And we always start the wars by propagandizing the citizens with, ….. “THEY attacked us” ….. as in a Vietnamese Gunboat attacked on an American ship in the Gulf of Tonkin. Then off we go blowing the hell out of Vietnam burning to death hundreds of thousands men, women, and children to SAVE AMERICA!
Only to discover that that incident in the Gulf of Tonkin NEVER HAPPENED!
So much for the “FREE PRESS”! Bull shit in, bull shit out!
And NOW those dangerous Vietnamese that threatened America then are now being sold armaments from our military-industrial-complex! God-Fucking-Bless-America!
Or Afghanistan …… why did we attack Afghanistan?
Oh yeah, Tubularsock remembers now, …….. to get bin Laden. And for what? There is still no proof that bin Laden planned 9/11. And before being attacked the Afghan Government said they’d turn bin Laden over to the U.S. if PROOF was provided that bin Laden was guilty.
But it was easier to bomb them than provide PROOF so seventeen years and still no proof, just continuous war.
And it’s good to remember:
9/11 WAS NOT AN INSIDE JOB!
IT WAS AN OUTSOURCED JOB.
THE U.S. ALWAYS OUTSOURCES IT’S TERRORIST ACTIVITIES!
Oh but the American population has forgotten Afghanistan because it’s now Syria ad nauseam. And Syria has DONE NOTHING to the U.S.! Oh well.
And don’t even get into Africa ……….. we are destabilizing Africa BIGLY but most Americans don’t even know we are there with our military.
And the Imbecile In Chief still thinks Africa is a “Bigly” country!
Which brings us back to Citizens United.
Money = votes and those with the most money = control. That is NOT democracy that is plutocracy and that is what Citizens United has created!
If a corporation is a person then ipso facto a person is a corporation! So just maybe the citizens may want to shift their status.
And hell, it’s cheaper than a sex change!
