Taps for the Black Man
For the second time in four years, I did NOT vote for the anointed, black messiah. I never considered it; what I did consider, yet again, was my residence in a country full of black, white, red and yellow people who would vote for him – or his opposite – and trying to justify it?! What I know is that the only thing that keeps me here is my daughter. And, as Dr. King said: “how long? Not long!”
While many people around me have found a reason for optimism or hope, I feel a hopelessness and despair at the human condition, and at the conditioning that has left most Americans intellectually ignorant, morally bankrupt and de facto dead. Meanwhile, Pakistanis, Afghanis, Yemenis, Sudanese, Iraqis and a host of others die because of our fatty, terminal stupidity.
Listen to this devil speak on it:
National Security Interests=Whatever the fuck we want, when we want it, fuck sovereignty, justice or law.
Also known as: Freedom & Democracy.
This is the face that Obama hides behind his Quiet Storm crooning; the kill list, NDAA, drones bombs fired into houses, mosques and the bodies of innocents – whose only crime is geography colliding with US global hegemony.
George Carlin says it much better than I:
“Now, there’s one thing you might have noticed I don’t complain about: politicians.
Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They don’t fall out of the sky. They don’t pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. It’s what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out.
If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you’re going to get selfish, ignorant leaders. Term limits ain’t going to do any good; you’re just going to end up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans. So, maybe, maybe, maybe, it’s not the politicians who suck. Maybe something else sucks around here… like, the public. Yeah, the public sucks. There’s a nice campaign slogan for somebody: ‘The Public Sucks. F*ck Hope.'”
If the South hadn’t seceded, we might still be chattel. The physical slavery may have ended, but the mental slavery has never ceased. That a black face in a high place could short circuit the intelligence and ethics of a people who have known nothing but trouble, nothing but struggle, nothing but opposition in this country…is a disgrace. The veneration of false Gods, of thin symbols trumping doings, or the works…
