Steve Lendman has a good essay on what is going on in Israel and the treatment of humanitarian delegations, UN diplomats and several comments about the ongoing genocide against the Palestinian people.
Everybody by now should well recognize that criticizing Israel is taboo, but I don’t care. It is not that hard to understand the horrible story of occupied Palestine and who’s really suffering (and who’s land has been literally stolen).
It is hard for me to believe that a modern country could exhibit such behavior, but witness the US treatment of Iraq for another current example a bit closer to home. Both of these evil and corrupt governments are in league with each other and is no accident at all, crimes against humanity oftentimes require evil bedfellows.
Bad, bad news about Obama these days if you’ve been paying attention. They’re getting ready for martial law as I “read it”. Logrithmic sent this in: Obama, the threat of military dictatorship
In recent weeks, I’ve read a lot of scary stories regarding Obama. Climate Progress is optimistic that he will act decisively on climate change with his scientific adviser picks, but it remains to be seen what this will translate into on the ground.
It is however, rather doubtful in my opinion that anything effective will be accomplished, the forward momentum is going to be difficult to stop. The economic collapse has a much better chance of impacting our future climate then anything else, so there is a bright side to all of this.
Even so, I’m much more concerned with the ongoing economic collapse and how this is going to affect us all. The threat of military takeover (or martial law, same thing) is real, and there are plenty of rumblings coming out of our government that they are expecting serious unrest in this country. The precurser to this seems to be the economic collapse trigger.
No friggin wonder, as they spend trillions of our dollars in a totally unaccountable way. Don’t even BOTHER to ask where the money is going, you will not be told.
This country should be up in arms (literally) over the crimes being committed by governments (not just ours). But I’ve given up on Americants, who are too fat, lazy and stupid to care about anything anymore. No use even reminding them of their chains or their death sentence, slavery is their preference.
These ‘reminders’ as it were (current news stories) are factual enough to be taken quite seriously and require the immediate attention of every American. But, nothing will be forthcoming. Just more breadlines and more destitute, homeless people as trillions more in handouts disappear into the ether.
Something really odd is happening here. Anybody besides me notice this? Only in America is the apathy so great and the indifference so high that our ‘leaders’ can and do get away with bloody murder without any accountability at all. It’s rather unbelievable, but it’s very real.
Go spend five minutes today over a Wired Defense Blog, and see what new toys the military has been dreaming up to extend their unending wars.
Consumer Day is almost here by the way, in case you haven’t noticed. I haven’t, I don’t bother with this feast of consumerism and global gluttony. It’s hard to get anything done in town during this month, as the aisles and parking lots are jammed packed with debtors and slave laborers. But invariably, I have to venture out and always regret it when I do.
Next year, maybe I’ll be better prepared and I can just cancel December as the month when I check out from the human race. I think there is a better then even chance that by this time next year (or sooner), there will be martial law, so running around then will be a bad idea anyway.
March seems to be the month that people think it all comes flying apart. Maybe it will, I don’t really know and to be honest, I don’t really care anymore. It’s not that I’m pessimistic (which I am), but what difference does it make anymore? Collapse happens to YOU, it’s most certainly here now for millions of Americants, and it will indeed happen to each of us at different times (depending directly upon your preparations) and it has already proven to be entirely unpreventable (and desirable).
It could happen via be a job loss or a roadblock gone wrong. We’re all about to get locked down in some pretty drastic ways, I can feel it in my bones. There are definite signs many other people feel the same way.
