Not saying I welcome, not saying I want it.
But there is now a huge disconnect between the Powers that Be, The Criminal Politicians and the vast majority of Americans. This vast majority is hungry, or afraid of becoming so, jobless or extremely fearful of losing their job, homeless or afraid of being so, and the smiling bastards that have aided and abetted the Wall Street, Big Monied Interests will on account of these elements, soon face a terrible awakening.
(How bout that!!! I didn't know I was gonna be hungry, jobless, and homeless!!!! I'm glad we have the DUmmies around to tell us this stuff!!! :eek:)
Yesterdays Brouhaha's in California, Texas and Illinois regarding the protests of students, parents and faculty is just the beginning. In California, twenty thousand people who are out of work and seeking higher education as a means to better themselves have been turned away by State Officials. Classes are cut back, but never fear, Richard Blum, Di Fi's Iraq war profiteer of a husband is still sitting pretty in his office overseeing the mess at UC.
And let's not kid ourselves - had Geithner offered to California the loan Schwarzenegger requested, for twenty billion bucks, none of those folks would be turned away. But Geithner has to be mindful only of his buddies on Wall Street and the seventeen billion or so they need for their so well deserved bonuses.
A huge philosophical point that separates the current Administration and the Current Congress and Senate from the political ideas of Richard Nixon is that Nixon employed panels continually telling him to do right by the People, or worry about riots.
The current clowns in Office think that we don't need the occasional bone. Barack is too young to remember what old fashioned, in the street rioting looked like. But he is about to get a quick catch up course in reality.
I am convinced that this nation is set on a course that will be unlike anything seen up to now.
In ways I am reminded of tales that Howard Zinn has told - when the common people of the 1830's got together and they pulled apart the custom official's home, brick by brick, to oppose the horrendous penalties that the official had utilized against them.
We have had no real change in Health Care Reform, we have had no real meaningful way of putting America back to work, and the citizens are coming home not to roost, but to wage all out hell.
