Dark Side

Black, White and Blue All Over Again – Headlined on OpEdNews.com Sun 7/10/16

MY Zoe & SoulmateIn the aftermath of sniper murder in Dallas Texas, public reactions have been what we’ve come to expect:

  • Conservatives, largely silent about street weapons of mass destruction
  • Governor and Mayor pass out pabulum band-aide as soothing, consoling patch for a horrific wound to those drowning in grief before funerals and moving on, without
  • Police shootings of black men in Baton Rouge and Minnesota largely pushed to back burners to simmer while the main Media course Terror in Dallas is brought to boil, repeatedly
  • MIA, Wayne LaPierre’s madness, Only Way To Stop A Bad Guy With A Gun Is With A Good Guy With A Gun all five Dallas police officers were good men with guns, protecting good Americans in Peaceful Assembly

The commonality of sniper fire, mass shootings, gang bangers, foreign wars, police brutality, community fear and NRA bottom-line, lining political pockets is:  guns.  The cure:  hope, trust, faith voting political backbone to overcome special interests.

In unity, we party then weep; play then pray – longing to wash away the epidemic violence of a ranting few with the generous voting common sense of the many.

It’s not just Dallas, Minnesota and Louisiana; not just police killing African-Americans; not just African-Americans shooting police.  It’s a constitutional mind-set derived by agendas addicted to profiting from destructive human behavior.  It’s not just Conservatism’s Dark Side, but programmed biases ingested into our Hedonic Hot Spots – from handheld devices.

It’s not just about the Bush/Cheney Wall Street induced Great Recession, it’s about defining ourselves by the number of dollars at our disposal.

It’s not just about bigger, better, faster, for what value is being the most advanced country technologically, if our global communications fail to embrace different cultures and points of view.

It’s about getting beyond being statistics:

  • More white people killed the twenty-six police who died in the line of duty in 2016, while 136 black people were shot by police in the same 191 days
  • More black people were killed by US police in 2015 than were lynched in the worst year of Jim Crow

America is not just about statistics for media hype, The Census for Gerrymandering, Madison Ave analysis for addictive ads that hook us on over consumerism – and while elections are not just about exit polling, exit polling is about our Media trampling over, those who are first will be last.

It’s not just about Texas Open Carry and Paul Ryan’s GOP tap dancing to an oldie but baddie NRA refrain.

It’s about political leaders being elected for solutions, but too many, like Congress and retrograde Roberts & Alito justice, are offering up a pittance of lowering the flag, moments of silence and condolence clichés, while gutting the Voting Rights Act, voting for Citizens United and ignoring this truth:  the shared commonality between Newtown’s Sandy Hook, Charleston’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, Richmond Virginia’s TV reporters, Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and Terror in Dallas is:  guns.

It’s not just violence of any kind is more than political opportunity to huddle and scramble for the perfect words, because for multiple death from gun violence, there are no words.

It’s either about being color blind, preserving the mental health, economic stability and individual security of all human life, or being accomplices after the fact to numeric few attempting a takeover of The Land still trying to breathe Free.

It’s not about the size of our arsenal defining our manhood.  It’s about needing cold water in our faces to warm our hearts and awaken our brains:  Zika Virus, ISIS, and Climate Change denial are the real potential pandemics.

The fear of being left behind, oppressed and forgotten, can only be defeated by our collective spirit of reason, denying denial of truth and dismissing from power, the powers who need foreign wars and seed domestic violence.

Solutions:

  • Instead of allowing 24/7 Media to program us into believing America is a polarized nation, attend meetings of diverse local groups, and listen
  • Know that bullets will never defeat the powers that steal our hope – but ballots can
  • In peaceful assembly, start walking in city streets; silently, allows the non-violent presence of your numbers to be the message
  • Make certain all races, ages, ethnicities and sexual preferences are encouraged to walk with you

Not All American Lives Matter

Posted on Updated on

Jefferson Shadows & RotundaLet our 2015 preproduction caucus of the few selected, begin anew to cast beyond those we got elected, guaranteeing no first brother of the nation twice ensconced in 1600 will ever again be resurrected.

We are the fog of Foggy Bottom, the bonus protection from DOJ shareholder paid fines – the ones who keep you in the long blue lines, for our freedom to commit Wall Street crimes.

We few, we greedy few puppeteering the asses, from our shadowy passes, now call our New Year lows to order, to keep disorder among the masses.

With each prelaunch of annual potential, we sync our stopwatches, knowing we are the simmering pot the watchers neglect to watch — now to concoct a new low plot.

Tis the season for taking victory laps for vow of media silence in post Ferguson protest coverage, and the populace proudly imposing North Korea into umbrage.

While it may be patriotic to stand your ground for laughably bad acting, you’ve tipped the bottom line to the tune of the tiptop one percent, which is America sacking.

Under our thumb you will ever succumb, beyond year end reviews of goody two shoes all aplomb, it’s you who permit us to make America dumb.

Controlling non-news media trolling with conniving ads and talking heads, we keep the hordes focused on the Feds, while we in the wings prep the world stage, heaping financial reward on puppets playing the role of saving sage.

Still secure without need for bail, our stolen cache chiseled in too big to jail, we split the races violently, trusting rented Congress to behead your Social Security.

Matters not that you know, it’s our playing field and show in which both puppet and puppet master race for dough.

Whipping Middle Class to Right deluded, keeping mere millionaires delusional, we swarm for trickledown, shootings and patriotic funeral — denying any image of your own, save that which we, on The Street, condone.

Whether Fascism in Michigan Courts or 5-4 Citizens United ammunition, we few Dark Side shadows fuel Koch condescension.

We stroke the minions with holiday sales, puppy dog tails and whimsical gasoline prices, but it’s our money power that separates Blue & Red by Black & White, which Corporatism slices and dices.

Thanksgiving shoving aside, replacing peace on earth with manic shopping, ever wonder what you’d receive if instead of credit card deal flip flopping, you’d share the wisdom of knowing, it’s we at the top who determine direction you’re going?

Remotely granting instant gratification is our key, to keeping the roulette media ball spinning its cliché chorus in circles repeatedly.

We few direct your culling the brown and black tanned, limiting our exposure throughout the land, for without transparent light we can continue manufacturing your rage to solidify our might.

Troublesome though it is to see police giving gifts in Lowell and throughout the nation, we’ll erase the image with news cycle of police assassination, rendering Don’t Tread on Me and Multi-cultural celebration into mutual confrontation.

As conduit of misinformation and Middle Class elimination, in disproportion we imprison African-Americans but limit gerrymandering prosecution.

Ignoring laws designed to environment and equitable pay save, we bury poorer neighborhoods and minimum wage in early grave.

As long as banners of Blue Lives and Black Lives Matter wave in opposition, murder is murder regardless of color of shooter or victim, will never gain a We the People united position.

We oppose Pope, Santa and Herstory in White House press conference, and though “it was a mistake” was no presidential SONY dissonance, with a twist of public opinion we’ll blacklist all Progressive preference.

You see, on our balance sheets, lives matter only on some American streets.Too Big To Fail
