2. That would be heartening, IF the American Subject Populace had any power whatsoever
or any effect on the government of this nation whatesoever, beyond the barest minimum of occasionally forcing the Corproate NeoFeudalists, Good Cops and Bad Cops all, to put on a show for the purpioses of "plausible deniability".

Unfortunately, the American Subject Populace, other than an inanimate obstancle to be easily and laughingly tiptoed around (but for how much longer will the PTB, the Corporate NeoFeudalists, even bother? one wonders...) using all the techniques of advertising and propagasnda, the American people have as little effect on ur government than the Chinese Subject Populace.

The dog-and-pony show is just gussied up more for us, and again I say, for how much longer will the Coporate Neofeudalists bother?

Well, see. Good Cop is pretty much over, even though it had scarcely begun. The Corproate Neofeudalists are in a hurry to dismantle the last real threats to their Inverted Totalitarianism, and Obama's "election" has succeeded in sending millions of Americans back to the TV and Prozac, convinced that the American Subject Populace can still vote and have it mean something or even be properly recorded.

Wait until you see what Bad Cop has in store for us in 2010 and 2012.

3. I have slowly begun to realize the same thing. It is all a show and it looks like
they are tiring of playing with us. For eight long years we kept thinking if only a democrat were president then things would be better. Well, now it is still the same and there has not been any change at all.

Look at the banks and their bailout. They are not even bothering with a dog and pony show at all. Bank of America is simply not modifying the mortgages that we paid them to fix. Now they say they will pay back money. They got the money with no strings and no interest payments. When was the last time we were given that kind of "bailout"?

5. Aren't WE too big to fail? It would be great if everyone just stopped paying them.
No more credit card payments and no more mortgage payments until they pay attention to us. We can't fight them in the streets, but we could fight them with money. Eventually they will stop social security checks and other government services anyway. Look how even our president is on board to dismantle free public education. All that bullshit about charter schools is just the stepping stone to ending free elementary through high school education in this country.

6. What to do when everythin is upside down, when applying logic leads to apparently insane conclusions
This is something we handful of people who are One-Eyed in a kingdom blinded and bedazzled by TV and drugs have to live with.

Try to tell anyone, and you'll achieve nothign except having them think you're nuts.

Just like the handful of people who recognized the danger of Hitler years before he became Germany's Chancellor.

Hell, I bet you could record the conversations between "us" and "them" from any historical period and it would be the same tape loop.

Anyway, I do not envy you your realization, for it will give you 100% grief and no satisfaction, since there is only one way left to achieve "change we can believe in" anymore, and that is a literal impossibility PLUS the Bushies have now activated the conscienceless monsters in one-third of our population (the KKK sympathizer third and I am not talking about the racism but the STUPID and the gullibility to authority as authority becomes evermore corrupt) to act as Brownshirts if ever there are any serious rumbings.

What to do when logic leads to "insane" conclusions? What to do when the entire Conventional Wisdom of a nation turns out to be 100% lies, or very VERY close to it? And what to do when, as it always happens, 99% of the people can't or refuse to see it until it is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY too late and so obvious even small children start noticing?

Been pondering that for ten years now, with only a brief respite to drink Obama's Special Blend Good Cop Corporate Neofeudalist Kool-Aid. Of course, even at the time in the back of my mind I knew I was drinking Kool-Aid, that Obama was just another Clinton without the sexual promisuity, but I wanted to drink it because it felt good.

LOL. Anyway, good luck with your awakening that will make you miserable and no one will believe you anyway as they gobble Prozac in the glow of their TVs.

I don't envy you.

7. Sounds like "history's actors" ...
"We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality
-- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and
that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."

8. I've come to that same conclusion
in the last couple of weeks. At first I thought I was crazy for believing that's the way it is but with each passing day I see more and more that it really has come to this. :-(
