I admit I am not privy to the information the USA politician scum who are mere figurehead lackeys of the USA’s elite classes, corporations, special-interest groups, etc. have access to.
I am far removed from the bureaucrats and bureaucracies involved with assisting the vile, scum, putrid politicians and all the other people and institutions that whisper into the ears of the USA’s so-called “leaders” who decide to send the common folks of the USA to foreign lands to fight for some reason.
The past few years I keep hearing the well-brainwashed people of the USA spewing that those troops have fought terrorism to “protect our freedoms.”
What freedoms have you lost?
The ability to move to a new area? How about voting? Writing a blog entry? Well, you have lost the freedom to not have some government lackey fondle your body attempting to board an airplane.
But that may be necessary since our borders are wide open to anybody wanting to stroll across a border with the intent to harm us.
I sincerely doubt that the mid-east terrorists had or have the ability to truly remove our many freedoms.
But, that freedom phrasing is excellent spewing material to jostle the masses of citizen-sheep’s emotions and make them compliant and accepting of the ruling master’s politician lackeys.
A few folks who have cast off some of the brainwashing do not bleat their contentment with the USA’s masters and the master’s politician and bureaucrat lackeys, though.
Replace the TV show shown with any show of any type and a multitude of citizen-sheep will accept that which appeals to their implanted notions and either bleat contentment or disgust.
An enormous amount of research and studies prove that most folks are influenced by emotional appeals and tune out that requiring logical or rational thinking.
For proof listen to the spewing politicos campaigning for office.
They will babble the words that influence the largest percentage of voters.
Of course, to understand the meaning of what I just wrote you have to possess the ability to recognize meaningless emotion-laden meaningless froth when it is tossed at you.
If the USA had never become engaged in any way in the middle-east area who knows what the world situation would be today.
I can not even make a wild guess.
I do know that there would be a HUGE number of USA troops who would not have injuries from minor to life-altering and that children would be able to hug a dad who did not die overseas and the other folks who died in yet another far away land would have not died in that manner.
Looking back, if the mega-dollars (billions? trillions?) spent to send troops overseas had been spent inside the USA I wonder how many sick people could have received decent medical attention?
How about the people suffering from dental pain daily, unending, suffering but without the money for even basic dental care? Could some of that money been used to assist a fellow citizen?
The World Trade Center (WTC) tragedy started us on the path that has led to so many Americans dead or suffering from injury and with the USA falling ever-further in debt… spending more than governmental income.
If a country had performed that attack our leaders (cough) and their advisers could have acted akin to the 1941-era folks who had Congress declare “official” war and commence mayhem against an easily-defined and located enemy.
Fighting “terrorism” is difficult since those trouble-makers are embedded within a country or countries and akin to the Viet Cong in Vietnam who blended in with the populace.
I am not a foreign affairs expert but from my viewpoint, without the access to “experts” our “leaders” have, the years-long trials and tribulations confronting the USA in regards to terrorism and the middle-east appears to be a clash of cultures.
Reflecting on that idea I look to events in California where the Reconquista of land once occupied by Mexico is being overrun by folks from the south entering the USA both legally and illegally.
A few years ago the Los Angeles police chief publicly proclaimed that Black citizens were undergoing genocide by some of the folks from the south.
What happened to that political correct mantra, the constant spewing that “diversity is our strength?”
So, a lack of unifying bonds is a good thing?
I groan inwardly thinking of how extremely complicated the topics I am writing about are in real life.
People who have not personally experienced the animosity held by some of the folks from the south, physically and/or culturally, towards the often despised USA citizens and/or Gringos and/or Blacks and/or folks from oriental countries such as South Korea have not been informed of the realities some USA citizens are confronted by.
There are many reasons for the out-migration from California by USA citizens, myself among them.
Some reasons are economic and other reasons but a surprising number of California’s refugees are fleeing the invasion and the often horrid behaviors of the invaders.
Naysayers please note that am writing in generalities and that numerous exceptions exist but I have to ask naysayers if they have ever suffered at the hands of Nortenos or Surenos or whoever or whatever who decided you are an enemy due to your nationality or skin pigmentation?
A house divided can not stand…
And thus I have again veered from the topic path I started upon….
BRING OUR TROOPS HOME NOW!!!!
After the WTC tragedy we commenced seeking revenge.
That is a normal response and I do not condemn our “leaders” for doing so.
But did they use the best methods?
I wonder if their actions were based to some extent upon meeting the desires of the common folks?
Were there other consideration involved in our actions?
How about the connections between USA elites, corporations and the figurehead lackey politicians and folks and entities of wealth and power in the mid-east?
Were the best interests of the USA in general considered?
What about the best interests of the masses of common folks?
One of many questions I have about the USA “leaders” decisions about the ongoing “war against terror” is would the same decisions have been made if a military draft sent youth from the upper-classes into foreign lands?
One of the federal government bureaucracies sent alerts to warn other agencies, bureaucracies, etc. about the various dangers that returning troops from overseas battles posed to the USA.
More accurate would be the assumed danger to the status quo of the ruling-elite masters, corporate USA and the other entities owned and operated by a small minority of Americans who skim immense amounts of wealth from the masses of common folk’s labors.
Maybe that fear is legitimate; due to the vile vermin who are mentally and economically enslaving the mass of folks; you and me and everybody we know (I assuming you, the reader, is not one of the small group of scum lording over us though you may be a well-indoctrinated lackey such as an FBI or NSA anti-We, the People vermin who put your pay, pension and perks above any concept of We, the People).
When I returned from my two overseas tours in the 1970s I viewed the USA far differently than when I left the USA.
Enormous amounts of non-fiction reading and life experience led to my growing Disgruntlement over the years.
In the early 1980s I concluded that the USA was in the throes of class warfare.
I was saddened but also pleased when much later I read the words of minds much better then mine:
“My friends and I have been coddled long enough by a billionaire-friendly Congress.” – Billionaire Warren Buffett, in a New York Times op-ed on Aug. 15.
“There has been class warfare going on,” Buffett, 81, said in a Sept. 30 interview with Charlie Rose on PBS. It’s just that my class is winning. And my class isn’t just winning, I mean we’re killing them.”
“While the poor and middle class fight for us in Afghanistan, and while most Americans struggle to make ends meet, we mega-rich continue to get our extraordinary tax breaks,” Buffett wrote in a Sunday New York Times Op-ed.
“One reason companies are so profitable is that they’re paying employees less than they ever have as a share of GDP. And that, in turn, is one reason the economy is so weak: Those “wages” are other companies’ revenue.
In short, our current system and philosophy is creating a country of a few million overlords and 300+ million serfs.” Blodget
The various people and systems that are sending the common folks (non-elites) to fight overseas are the same folks immersing us in life-long intense propaganda that is very effective.
Mentally enslaved with self-applied mental slave chains We, the People are also being economically raped.
A news story from June, 2011 says:
“…a majority (56%) says that U.S. troops should be brought home as soon as possible, while 39% favor keeping troops in Afghanistan until the situation has stabilized.”
Read the entire story: Record Number Favors Removing U.S. Troops from Afghanistan
A report from April, 2012:
With the numerous news reports about supposedly friendly Afghans shooting foreign troops with USA troops the most often killed and wounded I believe the numbers of USA common folks wanting our misused troops home NOW has greatly increased.
I can imagine so many other actions and reactions our “leaders” could have done following the WTC tragedy.
I also am forced to lay some blame on the masses of USA commoners, the everyday Johns and Janes and various Q-public-types of We, the People.
Perhaps if the masses (not all, of course) had not shouted their demands for immediate revenge against the guilty ones the lackeys of the elites operating the federal government may may MAY have used some wisdom instead of knee-jerk reactions to respond to that horrid attack.
If that lackey kisses sheiks I wonder what he did or perhaps still does with the tyrants lording over Mexico… the country GW Bush stated was America’s best friend?
Yes, my bias is evident in some of what I write but I am not an emotionless critter though I will match my logical and rational thinking abilities against any foul fiend lackey politician or candidate for a figurehead position.
Sadly, I am a withered husk physically after the decades of extremely arduous labor-intensive jobs I performed that assisted in keeping our society operating on a day-to-day basis.
Doing the jobs the putrid politicians proclaim are jobs Americans will not do.
Maybe the lazy, spoiled filth at their socio-economic level will not perform those jobs but there are MANY USA citizens doing that work and it was OUR wages driven down and benefits disappeared as the encroaching multi-millions of illegal alien competitors appeared and destroyed the supply/demand economic laws and sent even more wealth into the hands of local, regional and nation-wide elites.
“…many vets have a hard time adjusting to corporate culture.”
The statement above comes from an article also telling of the high unemployment rate for those returning after fighting overseas. Read it at the next link:
I wonder how many of those folks returning from overseas, especially the younger ones, view the USA and the many aspects of it similar to me when I returned back in the 1970s?
If enough of them are akin to me maybe my desired full-scale military coup to re-create the USA from its currently unrepairable condition may occur some day.
Highly doubtful but I and many others were shocked when the Berlin Wall was torn down… not that what happened within the USSR was a huge improvement but there was some additional freedom for the folks afterwards.
