America, if you think the worst is behind you, think again

If you think things are bad now, just wait, it's going to get worse. We're already living under a form of martial law, with our emails and cell phone conversations being spied on w/o a warrant. Satellites fly overhead and peer into our homes and track the moves of "persons of interest."
A "person of interest" is anyone who's ballsy enough to say "Stop, this had gone far enough."

They can legally use no-knock warrants, come in with guns blazing and it's an "Oops, sorry," if they got the wrong house.

When is the last time you heard some cop or federal agent go to prison for shooting an unarmed citizen during a botched raid?

We don't have money for health care, but the various goon squads, like the ATF, DEA, FBI etc are bristling with weapons making them look more like a platoon of Green Berets.

And we have no problem with funding over 800 military bases around the world to protect our "interests."
Our interests? More like the interests of AT&T, ExxonMobil and GE.

Ditto for the local cops, who just love getting military technology and weapons.

Who are they so afraid of?

We the People.

1.7 million lost their homes in 2007.

2.5 million in 2008.

In 2009, it will get worse.

The ones in power are like junkies addicted to some drug. Try getting between a meth head and his next fix and see what happens.

DC and Wall Street will continue to loot, pillage and plunder this country until there is nothing left.

Yes, the same ones who take that oath of office to uphold the Constitution. An oath which they treat like used toilet paper.

And forget writing or calling your DC rep. Remember how effective that was when people deluged the Congress with phone calls, emails and faxes saying NO to the Banker Bailout Bill?

We're fucked.

If we don't want to take a stand and fight for our freedom, then you'd better get used to that boot stomping on your neck.

Working Class Hero by John Lennon

As soon as you're born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function you're so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There's room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

  1. Hi Greg,
    Saw your comment on that i-911 article but couldn't post myself because there was no "anonymous" option--I disagree with the author about the 20 days to write up the patriot act--it was written up--printed out--and approved before 911--you can bet that the i-911 is sitting on the shelf as well--
    First time by your place will stop back later--
    Thanks,
    Jj

  2. The basics of the Patriot Act were on hand and ready after the Murrah building was destroyed in OK City.

    Clinton wanted to pass that version back then, but was told NO by Congress.

    That was when the feds realized they needed a more drastic approach to help pass the Patriot Act.

    Which conveniently fell in their laps on 9/11.

    Amazing, huh?
