taking a pass
i started to check in on my google reader- but i got like 2 articles in and had to stop. i am taking a pass on the news. apparently, the cia let private contractors do waterboarding. that on top of the private security forces for the fbi- and the blackwater, et al forces- goddamnit! these are allegedly americans. how can so many sign on for what is going to be the end of our democracy? no- scratch that- is the end to our democracy. honestly, i don't know how much longer i will keep blogging. there are no checks and balances- and the fact is- i have people who depend on me too much for me to sacrifice myself to an idea that has apparently run its course with my countrymen. yes, there are those of us who are out there fighting. there always are. they sacrifice themselves for the greater good and martyr themselves to the cause. i am not that person. my sacrifice will be for the greater good of my family. i can't depend on the strength of others because i have not seen much. the small band of brothers who have connected over these blogs and email- would be rounded up and sent away and no one would be the wiser and to what end? the writing is on the wall and i can hear the boots marching on the streets. although, apparently, they are more like ninjas in the night. this isn't my country anymore. it is the place i live. the country i was born into is dead on the inside. the facade is still in place- and we go through the motions but the idea that was america- has died and an inglorious death by the hands of the corporatocracy. i have much thinking to do this weekend. posting will be light.
