Honoring the Oath … Who really DOES it?

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

We have far too many “officials” and appointees in unelected positions of power whose  personal views hardly support any democracy as we know it. In fact, many tied to our corporate Oligarchy outright oppose the democratic process. They see it as antithetical to their personal and class hegemony. How can THEY make the rules if all citizens get to participate in deciding our fate? No sooner do they get appointed or sworn in, than they totally disregard that Constitution they swore to defend and protect — merely that “piece of paper” (as president “W” famously referred to it) … upon which the nation was founded.

It’s amazing that so few seemingly sincere “patriots” don’t seem to SEE that …

Some among us have shown the desire to CHANGE that. Most notably, Bernie tried for a while not so long ago, and found a following … of millions.

Way too FEW in our military &/or executive have respected that oath so many like to cite. They use their “authority” as THEY re-define it, cleaning their feet on that “piece of paper” — the Constitution — they swore to defend. They twist words, and occupy authority they do not have. It is part of believing ultimately in physical force as some kind of “divine” justification. Cave men, short of wisdom and real morals.

• Take, for example: Henry Kissinger … a model of vision & integrity. Right? Admiring or recommending HIM … by itself … disqualifies the moral judgment of anyone wanting to be a leader of a democratic U.S. That has been true for decades.

— They constantly warn us against foreign threats & demand billions from us for our “defense”, while ignoring, protecting, or even aiding much more serious DOMESTIC threats … to our people, stability, economy, environment, well-being and to the democratic process itself.

— Sadly, that OATH itself has become but “piece of paper” as banksters & other unelected power-brokers rob us blind and usurp authority while buying up our laws, lawyers, media, and elections … with total impunity. No questioning, no warnings, no indictments. Only … rewards, … oh, they might pay an occasional fine perhaps. U.S. prisons are for dope smokers, the out-of-work, minority critics, and whistleblowers, not Constitution-trashers. This is not mere speculation … but rather simple, sad observation.

Prime-Time, Fantasy Unity-Time DNC Puts Disney to Shame

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

(from the BernieSanders FB site on the Monday of the DNC in Philly)
I hear and share the disappointment of many here. Yet I understand that the solid, seriousness of the programs discussed by Bernie in his national campaigns & rallies, about education, healthcare, banks, prison, TPP and more, ARE important for the future of this nation and indeed the world. That these issues are rebutted or glossed over by the Machine-DNC is galling at best.

— Their campaign is based upon fear of Trump and intimidation, but not of the vision and courage to make our democracy work for us all, as it COULD and SHOULD.Berners At Convention

— While Trump clearly is the Beacon for Bigots, this Elite-driven DNC represents the cold, calculating lengths to which our corporate oligarchy is willing to go to maintain THEIR control over the Power Structures of the Nation and to marginalize America’s People from any process of governance.

— They could, in a flash, nominate Bernie, roundly defeating Trump, their declared nemesis and bringing new millions of people into the process. But for those heartless vultures, Bernie is the UNDECLARED nemesis they set out to destroy … and basically DID.

—Then they BLAME the Victims (an old Dem favorite Game): don’t yell, don’t complain, don’t boo, don’t be disrespectful, don’t leave the party … etc. It is a childish playground bully mentality that is reflected SQUARELY in our current foreign policy. We do what we WANT to do to whomever we name or blame, … then cry: “Do not complain, do not fight back, resistance is futile”, etc. — OR, we’ll attack you, drone you, steal your election … whatever.

— You SEE, WE too … are treated … as Enemies if we seek fairness, economic justice, participation, … democracy. That’s how they have treated the Sanders movement: as enemies. There is a war on democracy in the USA, and Dems do their part, when not pretending that it does not exist.

— So all their sweet staged words do NOT compensate. We are their enemy, they thus are ours … or at least enemies of democracy, fairness, decency, and our Constitution … and of their OWN Rules, to be honest. Their “superdelegates” (Supermen?) are REQUIRED to vote for Sanders who is the most likely to win, but they will NOT.

— I, for one will NOT sleep with the enemy.
