I don't know whether to laugh or cry about America, so I'll do both.

What a tragicomedy America's fallen to.

Al Zarqawi now "bigger than Osama!"

Well sure he is. He's risen from the dead and has the power to regenerate limbs. Look out, he's a chameleon. He's lost his Jordanian accent, and God only knows what his face looks like now....

That people still fall for this shit is a tribute to the failure of public education, the successful psyops of the military/infotainment complex, and the basic decency of most Americans who refuse to recognize the dark games their goverment plays, even when they're played right in front of their faces.

My American friends, I'm deeply sorry for you. You should not be an object of pity. That's not your heritage, and that shouldn't be your destiny. But this is how low the cabal has brought you.

The emperor's lost more than his clothes. He's down to his dry bones. And still people cry "Hail Caesar!"

1. Thank you, Minstrel Boy.
Our long national hangover is about to begin.

2. The cognitive dissonance - the disparity between
the mythologized America and what it has become - is quickly becoming a matter of mental health. The denial is driving a segment of the right mad without their knowing it, and those on the left with eyes to see are feeling as if they must be going crazy, by remaining sane.

3. It gives us something to do.
Fighting the Bush Family Evil Empire is the highest calling since the fight to end the war in Vietnam, which on my calendar really began on 22 November 1963. This fight pits the same two groups against one another -- the Bush Organized Crime Family and its colossal octopus of the military-industrial complex, CIA-NAZI hierarchy, petrodollar fuel, Mafia mobsters, KKK nutjobs, Corporate McPravda, Wall Street monsters, global drug kingpins and so on against the enlightened class of people rich and poor, northern and southern, east coasters and west coasters, and from anywhere they can still think for themselves. The truth may not win ever battle, but the Truth always triumphs. This knowledge -- and the surety provided by Faith and the satisfaction that "Vengeance is Mine, sayeth the Lord," keeps me moving forward. Otherwise, yeah, I'd go nuts thinking about this stuff.

4. I !!!AM!!! going nuts!
After the *coup I always explained the land of my birth by asking people to take a close look at *corp media. It's a theme that resonates in my neighborhood. ;-) I would end my 2 cents with my conviction that Yeah, the Amis are S-L-O-W, but they're not STUPID. When they "capiche," watch out.

This last bit has REALLY shaken my faith. Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi has -0- to do with this latest "made-for-TV" production. THAT is as obvious as rat droppings in clear soup, to paraphrase a Chinese acquaintance. *dimwit pews NONSENSE on the electronic teat and Americans SCREECH in unison, "We're better, we're better, we're WHITE and WE'RE RIGHT!!!"
It is a HORRIFIC SPECTACLE. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
