memorial weekend is a good time to stop and reflect. think about the sacrifices that men and women throughout our history have made in order to safeguard our democracy. we need to stop pretending that we still have one. it is an insult to all of the people who have gone before us. we who lean left accuse the right of not living in the real world- well, we aren't either. we continue to keep up the pretense that the american constitution is still intact and in place- and that the right wing rhetoric spewing mouth breathers like hannity, o'reilly and hasselbeck- have anything credible to say. of course the same could be said for reid, pelosi and murtha right about now.
here's the deal- it is my belief that as long as we no longer have a constitution, i don't have to be tolerant. there is absolutely no reason to put creationists and bigots on the same platform as progressives and people with actual intelligence. if we continue to be tolerant, we will not be able to save what is left of america. why did i single out creationists? they are part of the movement to dumb us all down. don't take my world for it- read here.
so- my point is this- regular folks are beginning to feel the crunch of our new america. it isn't about inconvenience at the airport anymore. wake up and smell the coffee folks- the internet is wired up to the government snoops; cell phones and land lines too. your mail can be searched; your library card researched. credit card receipts, electric bills, bank records- all open at any time to the feds. the media is complicit but so are we. we stand idly by and let these people take equal stage time. these hate spewing mouth breathers openly lie and distort the facts daily on our 'news' shows and in our 'news' papers- and we continue to subscribe and continue to watch. we continue with our 'live and let live' mantra while they are eroding and taking away our way of life. the tolerant- 'this is what america stands for' attitude is really just complicity in the funeral and burial of our constitution. we tried the old way- and elected what has essentially amounted to nothing- and voted- to no avail. anyone who has listened to the right- and their fearless leader- the liar in chief- can see that absolutely nothing has changed.
no one has been held accountable- we are essentially 'waiting this out' until 2008. fuck that noise! take back your neighborhood! take back your piece of the world! confront these people and challenge them! make them defend their feeble position and make them worry. if we want our constitution- and most say that they do- put your money where your mouth is and stop being a spectator in life. bullies back down when challenged. don't roll over and accept the -oh well they are entitled to their belief system- it is destroying our country.
