this, the latter part of the year 2012, slips toward the year 2013,

The time has come to resist and end economic and political tyranny!So
many people in this 21st century United States have allowed
themselves to become entrapped in the fallacious paradigm of Democrat
and Republican chicanery, subterfuge, hypocrisy and insanity. So many
people continue to view the life and death struggle of everyday
Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people as if it is a my side
versus your side spectator sport, or a mechanized video game of
winners and losers. It is not. It
is a serious, long, hard, and protracted struggle to replace this
rotten, filthy, unjust, and corrupt political system.
the very name of the everyday people of this nation we now have a
legalized NDAA (National
'Defense' Authorization Act of 2012) de
facto police-state that can indefinitely
imprison in this country both
U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens - without
charge, trial, jury, or legal defense. In our name,
U.S. predator drone missiles are dismembering and murdering women,
infants, entire families, and old & young men alike - in Africa,
South Asia, and the 'Middle East.' In our
name! Over 80% of those murdered by these
deadly, terroristic U.S. predator drone missiles are noncombatant
innocents! Yet, even so-called 'combatants' deserve to be charged and
tried, and the right to present a legal defense. But not in this de
facto corporate 'American' police-State! But who gives a damn?! Do
you? Do you understand the national and international ramifications
of this even as it relates to you, your family, your friends and
associates? Do you give a damn?!
our name, we have an official 'Kill List' that allows for the murder
of anyone, anywhere
in the world (including of U.S. citizens), who are
designated by the U.S. corporate-owned president / Commander-In-Chief
as being supposed "threats." The hell with being charged or
receiving a trial, a jury or a legal defense! This has been done and
is being done in our name! The
hell with the U.S. constitution and
international law! The hell with justice! The hell
with the needs and political & human rights of everyday ordinary
people in this nation and throughout Mother Earth. Is this what you
some persons have the unmitigated audacity to allegedly wonder why
this nation's corporate-government is increasingly
loathed throughout the world?! Get real!!!
be sure to run to
the voting booths / recruiting chambers - and vote for the Democrat
or Republican corporate fascist of your choice!!! After all, you're
just a hamster - right?! Well are you?!
really don't have
to be this way.
It is a serious, long, hard, and protracted struggle to replace this rotten, filthy, unjust, and corrupt political system.There
is the option of
we everyday people regaining our humanity and resisting and reversing
the destruction of our civil liberties, corporate hegemony, economic
austerity for the masses of people, and perpetual wars and military
adventurism. There is
another option. But of course that means that you
would have to critically think and act accordingly, doesn't it?
none of us, can any longer claim "the mantle of ignorance."
Make your choice! Choose your humanity and that of your / our
brothers and sisters nationally and internationally; or choose
hypocrisy, servitude and ultimate oblivion. The choice is yours.
time has come to resist and end economic and political tyranny! The
time has come to join collectively together - Black, White, Brown,
Red, And Yellow - and to say through word
and deed, NO
MORE! The time has come to demand and
struggle uncompromisingly for
real systemic change.
can, through inaction and illusion, try to ignore the
blood on your /our hands - but sooner or
later "the chickens will [euphemistically] come home to roost."
Remember: Things do not have
to be this way, but they will remain so and will indeed worsen
unless and until we, the everyday people,
collectively change them. Make your choice the choice for systemic
change, the choice for humanity and for a creatively new and more
humane model. Oh, yes! The choice really is
yours. It's up to you and all of us.
