*[click the title: PINK:Dear Mr.President]*
Has Anyone else felt this? That we are living in an Environment that resembles 1930's Germany ? Has anyone else felt or seen the Pendulum of Public Emotions that run from outright Apathy ( aka Ostrich Syndrome) to Tormented Rage.Historically we are witnessing the Worst Time In Our History, and We Know It. I see it all around me, the Vacant Eyes, or Tormented Eyes.Next time you stand on a Corner Bustop or at the Grocery Store look a the EYES of those you stand with, and tell me what you see.
It is worse than the 1930's in many ways, there is Labor Unrest, Economic Instability, and Workers and Families have been disenfranchised and blighted.And Civil Rights have been trampled beyond Recognition.When in any of Our Lifetimes, have we heard "Debates" About Torture,Renditioning, No Fly Lists, SPYING on citizens, SPYING On Emails, Letters, Homes, Bank Accounts, Only Demonstrations allowed when the Government says so, People being denied Passports, and Others being Deported. People being cited and arrested for Wearing Impeach Bush Tshirts, People Being Removed from Voting Rosters.Remember this there are 1000's, Hundreds of thousands on LISTS. When in our Lifetime were there ever Lists? And now people that are in DC to organize the IMPEACH BUSH Sept.15th rally were harrassed and arrested this week. ( Go to Crooks&Liars for More on this).
I stood in line at the Grocery Store at dinner time with four people buying large amounts of Very Cheap Liquor last night. There was little eye contact, no jokes, no smiles. There were two other moms with small children buying Pedialyte and Milk, using Food Stamps. Is there NO Way that this should not tug at my heart.47 Million without Health Care and Health Insurance in this Country, Our Country. 9 Million of them Children.And What are the Real Homeless Humbers? What are the real Unemployed and Working Poor Numbers? I want to know. If the Bushco Administration were concerned about Terrorism, they would realize that they have been Fearmongering, Hate Mongering, and Terra Mongering for years now while they Disenfranchise THEIR OWN PEOPLE. And while People, OUR PEOPLE have been starving, losing healthcare, and their Homes and their Jobs they are also LOSING Civil Liberties and Rights. And the Bush Regime tells People to go Shopping......
And the Main Stream Media has abandoned us in so many ways. They do not report what is happening in Main Stream America, and that Level of Propagandizing the News has in many ways harmed the America That was here only 6 years ago.
The Media has forgotten that we are the ONEs that pay their way, we buy the food and soap that is advertized.I think many of us thought that there would be a "Bin Laden Terror" tape that would of course appear before the Sept 15th Impeach Bush Rally or before the Petreaus Report Release Date. These are Desperate Times for the Whitehouse.
When I lived in the Northwest, back in 2000 I met an Old Polish Woman that had Survived the Concentration Camps and WWII., and she said that the "War On The People started in the 1930's". She spoke about how first people lost their coffee shops, and Parks, and Places to MEET and talk.There were no more Public Gatherings, and the Police were Everywhere.And then the Newspapers became controlled. She talked about how Fear was used to ccontrol the People. Then they lost their ability to travel and visit and share news with others. She spoke with her thick accent and her weak Voice about how it Started So Simple, and grew day by day....Her words have haunted me," In the End I did Not Know My Country at all".
This America is not the America that we Knew and Loved before the Bush Regime Stole Power. I want Our America Back.I am tired of feeling like a Refugee in my own Country....We are NOT the Enemy.We should NOT be on Lists, or treated like we are Terrorists. We are WE THE PEOPLE.....Remember That.
