Just to make the point more pointy....


See the paid-off local bottom feeders
Passing themselves off as leaders
Kiss the ladies shake hands with the fellows
Open for business like a cheap bordello

And they call it democracy...
And they call it democracy

See the loaded eyes of the children too
Trying to make the best of it the way kids do
One day you're going to rise from your habitual feast
To find yourself staring down the throat of the beast
They call the revolution

Oh I saw, was busy watchin it entire afore posting a reply, cause it's well done.
Thing is, none of my current crop of ideas and concepts on how to handle the matter can be spoken out loud or even put in text, alas.
Which means I must reserve comment at this time.

"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false." -- William Casey, Reagan's presidential campaign manager & CIA Director (from first staff meeting in 1981)


Loves me some Bruce Cockburn, but a personal fave sums it up a bit better for me:







"I supported Bush in 2000 and 2004 and intellegence [sic] had very little to do with that decision." - Hero

Mitt Romney, introducing his running mate: "Join me in welcoming the next President of the United States, Paul Ryan!"

Rappy's response? "You're lying, gullible ( believing in some BS you heard on msnbc ) or hard of hearing."

Abortion doctors get all the good sedatives. They sleep like babies.

I got a better one for ya, Siggy.
This about sums it up exactly.



Again, Robespierre.
The longer this mess drags on, the more I understand him - once you realize he MEANT it to unfold that way, up to and including the destruction and demise of himself and his own faction, it all makes sense.
But all skimming the top does is buy time, the ROOT of the problem are the structures which create them.
