Mr BURNS vs OBAMA : TOTAL RECESS
Mr. BURNS vs OBAMA
“The American empire has not altered under Barack Obama. It kills as brutally and indiscriminately in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan as it did under George W. Bush. It steals from the U.S. treasury to enrich the corporate elite as rapaciously. It will not give us universal health care, abolish the Bush secrecy laws, end torture or “extraordinary rendition,” restore habeas corpus or halt the warrantless wiretapping and monitoring of citizens. It will not push through significant environmental reform, regulate Wall Street or end our relationship with private contractors that provide mercenary armies to fight our imperial wars and produce useless and costly weapons systems.” - Chris Hedges
The rise of fascism in the USA is well documented.
Not the fascism of Nazis or final solution; nah, the economic one, the Mussolini type where the will of corporations replaces “We The People” at the helm of government & institutions.http://www.worldfuturefund.org/wffmaster/Reading/Germany/mussolini.htm
Trash media hacks & corporate neo-brown shirts compete with Nixon’s ghouls & war criminal’s daughters to impose a political & religious agenda as fundamentalist as it is obscurantist.
Tragedy is, they succeed in imposing their narrative through a bought & paid mighty Wurlitzer spewing intellectual pabulum 24/7 at our master’s will and Rove bots pace. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2E1SLJgATvM
Their disillusion seems to be that ‘We The People’ are but a herd to be led by the nose to the economic slaughter house of eternal dependency and ponzy scams where the winner takes all; mainly the banking system & Giant Corp exemplified by the military industrial complex & Big Pharma.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmhL8bjL9vc&feature=channel_page
The recent Blackwater debacle (1) is a prime example of how fast & nasty things go wrong; as if being taken hostage by Wall Street didn’t bring the point home alone. (2)

Last November, Americans said WE WANT CHANGE so loud & so strong that the GOP was prevented to steal a third election in a row. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCR6IdTQTeE&feature=channel_page
Change we want, change we’ll get only if Obama gets a strong articulated left to back him up. This is but political pragmatism. http://current.com/items/89858972_it-s-obama-s-war-now.htm
Let’s start by booting out of office, and forever, the 31 racist senators who voted against Sotomayor for size. Then replacing them pesky blue dog democrats with real progressive minds.
Let’s collectively bring forward the ideas of Nader, Kucinich, Sanders, McKinney and others who really want change from the deadlock 2 party system that makes Americans looking like a helpless pathetic dog running after its own tail. http://current.com/items/89858972_it-s-obama-s-war-now.htm
Brand America also depends on the kind of justice that will be brought upon the last executive branch that went bat shit on everything that characterized civilization !
Our tomorrows & children’s future depends on this !
Because its our collective ass that’s on the line…
WAKE UP AMERICA, WAKE UP AMERICA, WAKE UP AMERICA !
"At what point do imbalances in access to money, media, and society’s administrative apparatuses constitute the censorship of dissent?" - Harvard Anthropology Prof Lorand Matory
“Washington has become Versailles. We are ruled, entertained and informed by courtiers. The popular media are courtiers. The Democrats, like the Republicans, are courtiers. Our pundits and experts are courtiers. We are captivated by the hollow stagecraft of political theater as we are ruthlessly stripped of power. It is smoke and mirrors, tricks and con games. We are being had.” - Chris Hedges
"The only difference between the GOP & DEMs is the velocity with which their knees hit the floor when corporations knock at the door." - Ralph Nader
“They call it the 'American Dream' because you have to be asleep to believe it.” - George Carlin
