BushCo as Tower Sniper

Here's a nice open-eyed rant delivering some cold truth hard and fresh:

⋅ ⋅ ⋅
Bush will remain President and keep his unsteady hand on the ship of state (with a veritable mafia of warmongers and greedheads standing behind him) right up until January 20, 2008, no matter what. [and beyond January 20, 2008...]

The Democrats will undoubtedly nominate another Brooks Brothers suited non-entity who will again ignore the progressive constituency of the party, not to mention the poor, the minority populations and others who have not shared in the American Dream because the Democratic Party seeks power for its own sake.

And since they are now inextricably tied to corporate money they will not now, nor ever, question the fundamental assumptions of American capitalism and what it is doing to our environment, our people, the world's less fortunate and our very souls.

While we're told that this invasion is the cause of our Middle Class ills, the corporations will continue to run our lives as we run the treadmill longer, harder and more desperately for less pay, fewer benefits and less security.

Our laws were written, and our courts constructed and our police deployed, first and foremost, to protect those denizens of capitalism. And so they remain standing guard, doing their duty, and their minions continue to scramble for the crumbs from the master's table, taking solace in the belief that if they don't do this duty, someone else will.
⋅ ⋅ ⋅
And the American people will not take to the streets. They will, instead, take it, because they, like their government, have made their own deal with the devil. They have forgotten and shamed the memory of our founding fathers and sacrificed essential liberty for the security of a comfortable middle class life which they will eventually lose anyway.

After all, someone could get hurt or tear-gassed or jailed actually protesting. And certainly no one will blame any overzealous police for just doing their jobs. And we wouldn't want our boss to see us thrown into a paddy wagon on the Six O' Clock News might be bad for the career.

...then, later, he reaches what to me is the correct conclusion given the current economic & political situation and the political psychohistory of BushCo...

But the day will come with terrifying consequences. Our economy, overstretched by suburban expansion debt, consumer debt and national debt is already showing signs of wobbling and will not need much of a shove to start a cascade of dominoes that will make 1929 seem like child's play.

If it all starts unraveling in a big way for the United States to the point where, constrained by a shattering economy, determined opposition by other nations over natural resources and the diminishment of Earth's carrying capacity because of environmental destruction, the man in the White House may decide to take the planet down with him.

Because I believe based on the record of American history that the people who now rule this nation, true sociopaths, believe a world in which America does not dictate terms is a world not worth living in. And if we can't have it, no one will.

Sounds to me like he's one of a growing handful of people who actually understands BushCo.

Sadly, it's looking increasingly like Canada isn't far enough away... but at least it's not the epicenter.
