Greetings From Rural America!
More “Occupy” arrests made for exercising 1st Amendment rights last night.
UH-OH. Rattle the sabers! Wave the flag!
From The Washington Post:
U.N. agency reports new concerns about Iran pursuing nuclear weapon
“Nuclear watchdog says it has “serious concerns” Iran is secretly working toward building a nuclear weapon, citing documents pointing to extensive and ongoing research by Iranian scientists on mastering the technology needed for atomic weapons.”
Also saw this in the morning news:
The President of Iran has said that such allegations are “absurd.”
“Russia will not support new, tougher sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program, Interfax news agency quoted a senior Russian diplomat as saying on Wednesday.”
Calico Blackie says:
Whichever side you choose to believe, people might have to suffer and die over this mess.
A lot of people.
Make up your own mind.
It looks like the subject of Iran is heating up again. It’s disturbing news.
I also hear from people calling for violent revolution in this country. That bothers me too. So I ask my readers…..
Have you ever read history, or did you “major in something useful” like your masters told you to do, so that you would be a good obedient drone for the 1%?
Imagine if we all did that?
No artists, poets, thinkers, dreamers, dancers, or culture.
Everybody the same.
No entertainers. Nothing but WORK.
Free Speech? Who needs it?
We’re all the same!
Just out of curiosity…..
How many of you have studied the history of wars and calamities in society?
How many of you have seen a real war from the ground?
How many of you have studied past violent revolutions in society?
How many of you are just “internet tough guys?”
I’ve put off writing this column for weeks because war and revolution are terrible things to contemplate and/or write about.
Quite frankly, it’s a scary topic.
So, why are we in such a hurry to send our kids to war?
Simple. Those who have never been to war have a “Hollywood” version of war.
They’ve never shot a living thing and seen it’s eyeballs pop out of it’s head.
Most people in this country think of John Wayne or movies such as “Apocalypse Now” when there is a mention of war.
Or, they’re just Fox “news” internet tough guys. These people have never studied the subject in detail.
They have never seen or felt real pain. They can’t even imagine it.
In the scene depicted here, he said he “loved the smell of napalm.”
Have you ever thought about what it would be like to die covered in burning jellied gasoline?
Have you ever thought about members of your family dying in this manner?
Have you ever noticed that the people that scream the loudest for war here are the very people that will not have to go and fight?
Either that, or they’ve only experienced war in video games played in the comfort of their warm homes.
WARNING….I am posting four images below that you may never forget for the rest of your life.
This is reality.
Remember, there are people out there that are living this RIGHT NOW in the world.
So you want a war?
Ok, internet tough guy.
Imagine you’re sitting in your living room cowering behind your couch during a revolution.
Suddenly, the door is kicked in and your kid is grabbed and you’re faced with the situation depicted in this photograph.
You can’t put down THAT game.
You can’t stop what’s going on.
Is this what you want? Or, would you perhaps prefer this?
This could be your wife and your child.
Where are you now, tough guy?
Defending your wife and child?
YOU’RE ALREADY DEAD
Still not enough for you? Try this.
Imagine how you would feel if your children were suddenly made homeless orphans, sitting in the wreckage of what was once their home.
Imagine if YOU had to bury them?
See them dead with their eyeballs popped out?
How would you feel?
How quick would you be to do this to someone else?
Or….How would you like your hometown to look like this?
Time to relax…..
After you’ve buried your family and friends.
After you’ve killed.
After you’ve seen everything you ever worked for and/loved destroyed.
We do this…….
To prevent our country from becoming this:
Oh yes….We will fight when needed to ensure this never happens again.
BUT WE WILL NOT BE DUPED INTO FIGHTING ANOTHER WAR FOR PROFIT and THE 1%’ers.
WE PATRIOTS WILL RESIST YOUR ATTEMPTS TO KILL US!
Think about it.
If the above scenes are frightening, why should we think it is OK for that to happen in any other country?
When Hannity, O’Reilly, Coulter and Limbaugh start waving the flag and try to push you in front of the blowtorch, be sure to tell them:
“Not for big oil and money.”
When they call you a commie, or say you are un-American, say:
“Ok, YOU go first.”
See if they send themselves and the families of the 1% to go fight and die.
Tell them that we are sick and tired of supporting the 1% maggots that feed off of our bodies.
We are sick of the Fox “news” parrots and their mouthpieces.
Tell them: WE ARE MORE THAN JUST “SURPLUS POPULATION” TO BE SACRIFICED IN THEIR WARS.
WE ARE THE 99%
