“Confronted with truth, the detractors are sounding a little pissed.” Naw, just bored.
One Nam Vet to another, I am afraid we are done for. The Republicans sold us out to the 1/10th of 1% a long time ago and have taken advantage of weaknesses in our Constitution to seize power from the working class. The corporate owners have used their near monopoly of the communication infrastructure of this country to sow division among the 90% by telling us that all the other groups of workers are out to take our small sliver of the remaining pie. All the while angling to take it all for themselves. As long as any of us has a small nest egg in the bank or own valuable property, they will not be satisfied. They want it ALL and have said so. In the meantime they tighten the screws by taking away all legal recourse by cheating and intimidation. They have used their vast wealth to corrupt politicians into passing laws that make it legal to lie and fraudulently seize the holdings of working people. With no legal way to fight back, we take out our frustrations on each other, leaving the suits in high towers to chuckle. Its all our own fault, they tell us, for not being eager enough or clever enough to work the system. Laws are for the little people. The truly wealthy are above it all and shove that fact in our faces on a daily basis and dare us to physically resist so they can demonstrate their power by smashing any attempt to level the playing field. Remember the Occupy movement? Remember the beatings, tear gas, rubber bullets, mass incarcerations, and preemptive jailing of suspected leaders of people who were simply asking for social justice (not counting the provocateurs planted by the governments). The powerful will see blood flowing like rivers in the streets before they will give up the new feudal system they’re building world wide. We’re just ahead of the curve because of our two party system that limits true representation. Vietnam was a long time ago. I am afraid that level of violence will have to occur again before there’s real change for the better.
Hey Wiz, do you hear the buzzing of a mosquito intellect?
Did you read my answer to @hfergus? I make all of these points.
Remind him of what happened to that guy about 2k years ago.
The Right holds that it isn’t a lie unless you can prove that the speaker intended to lie. They hold that if the person believes it to be true (or only suspects it might not be) it is not a lie. Nor do they believe an outright exaggeration to be a lie (unless the speaker leans Left).
You will notice he didn’t say why the FBI wasn’t able to help.
You mean the “white ones”?
Yep but it takes forever for the dust to settle.
Ok, that does it. You’re either a bot or a meat bot, makes no difference.
