Unruly Mob turns a Year old
Liberally Mirth fades out and then back in...
I am surprised and thrilled that there is enough interest in this little blog to keep it going. Beginning next Wednesday and until I have more free time, I will do a once-per-week post. Thank you for your kindness and encouragement. "
Winter Patriot wonders why the blogger meltdown is occurring... or, in the ever-non-churlish Winter Patriot's words:
"Winter Patriot's getting a bit concerned over signs of blogger meltdown ..."
My original thoughts on the meltdown-that-is-not-a-meltdown:
We are disillusioned, those of us who can see how far our country has fallen. We understand that increasingly it appears that the only way to fix our government is by strident measures. We can see that our politicians, corrupted to a man, whatever side they profess to be on, hold the belief that they ARE Royalty and that the people of this country deserve to be their pawns.
Peaceful protests aren't going to be the catalyst to change our country this time around.
Power is only checked by powerful countermeasures and important sacrifices borne of patriotic duty. Neither of which any American seems to have in any consequential supply, myself included.
It WILL get worse- and until Bushco and the Royal highnesses of Congress experience some REAL pain as a result of their destruction of the constitution, they WILL Not be checked.
IS it better to burn out than to fade away?? Do we Stand up and fight, REALLY fight- or sit meekly and die this slow death?
Either way, This country is on a path to self destruction. We either allow this murderous pharisee corporatist to become Pharoah, or we refuse to be slaves to the empire.
It's certainly a lot easier to simply give up and let your country die a nice quiet death, isn't it?
It's apathy versus anarchy. Like many americans, tucking my kids in bed at night, I find it really hard to champion ideals when their only defense is anarchic acts. The upper class of America HAS Abandoned the rest of the country. They hold the whips and no one among them has the morality or far-sightedness to see past their current mastubatory goals. They put all their efforts into chasing their selfish immediate gains and allow the infrastructure of our government, our economy, our military, and our global standing to rot from within.
And not ONLY do they so casually destroy the material infrastructure of this country, they also burn to the ground their own freedoms, their own futures, their own system of laws just to increase their piece of the pie.
Greed is a powerful thing. I have never really understood it.
But no matter how many vacation houses they amass, how many expensive cars they add to their collections, or how much they add to their bank balances, it won't be enough.
They sell their country out cheaply, these greedy short-sighted fools.
Maybe they Will deserve it, when it all comes crumbling down. But my children certainly don't deserve it. I don't know how to keep fighting this system that spirals deeper and deeper into hell each week. At least not without resorting to drastic measures.
So, until it gets worse, Americans will allow our royal keepers to continue fleecing the flock.
So here we go, once again- We got knocked down, but before I even finish bitching about it, we're already back on our feet, back into the fray. Just remember to protect yourselves at all times and keep swinging...
