When We Worship Those, Who Incite Domestic Terrorism – Headlined on OpEdNews.com

Posted on

When majorities begin to experience the loss of power over the consumers, minorities and voters they’re accustomed to persuading, selling and jockeying, to harvest gain, the thrill of the kill becomes a desperate conquest to retain the myths of history skewed to accommodate misconceptions of legitimacy, mis-perceptions of nationalism and misinterpretations of patriotism.

We have always rendered temporary our patches of fear, stress and strain, during the war and peace of political and cultural turmoil:  our Civil War, Pearl Harbor, 1960’s assassinations, Vietnam, 9/11, and 2017 Charlottesville hate crimes.

Anxiety and sleeplessness, however, are produced by our primal gut responses to perceived worldly impositions thrust upon us by an out of control evolution – the constant conflict between, truth hurting and freeing us – diversifying faster than some care to assimilate.

It is not only our physical and mental health-care that needs to be affordable – preserved, protected and defended from enraged autocratic commanders-in-chief, but our historical, cultural and self-examination that needs saving from individual complicity in the duplicity of radicalized Conservatism, avarice Corporatism and gerrymandered Party members – who’ve deserted promised statesmanship for a nationalistic provocateur.

Our greatest danger to trade, alliances and a United We Stand America is politicians fooling themselves into thinking, in the 21st century, we are still hypnotized by their convenient flip-flops to win elections – instead of keeping our ever-watchful eyes on what they do at rallies, state houses, Congress and the U. S. Supreme Court.

Americans do not live on alternative facts about border safety, homeland security and presidential dishonesty alone – but those who do, are embittered.

In 2018 Mid-Term elections, how we vote can recapture the essence of our American, I Have a Dream character and Statue of Liberty promise.  However, it will only be a, brief shining moment band-aid on a festering preexisting character-flaw, if we think our hour of seemingly diminishing power is just about Donald Trump.

#TimesUp on lying to ourselves regarding our past being our prologue, particularly if we continue to costume our racial prejudices, sexual bias and political acrimony in Halloween, Blackface.

Although true that our current GOP leaders are more akin to base purveyors of Jim Crow than malice toward none, the Trump family M.O. favors profiteering rather than originating.

Be assured, however, not all Republicans are among the willingly herded and corralled by the mendacity of Ted Cruz, Kevin Cramer, Josh Hawley, Dean Heller, Martha McSally, Dana Rohrabacher, Rick Scott and Scott Walker.  Therefore, we must be helpful to those tricked into voting for the only globalism from which Americans need to recoil:  an American Trump/Pence/Putin/Saudi/Bolton/Sessions regime.

America, and by, buried heads in the sand extension Americans, has nurtured our preexisting condition of propping up foreign despots, supporting domestic strongmen and now voting for rented career maniacal politicians – all while silently bidding for the establishment of imperial military bases, black sites and encampments for refugee children.

Whether armed assault on a fictional pizza basement pedophile ring or sending six wannabe intimidation pipe-bombs, everyone is responsible for their actions.

Nonetheless to hear a consistent hate and fear mongering racist and misogynist try to compose an harmonious tone, expecting we’ll forget his violence inciting monologues, insulting the humanity and intelligence of empathetic, mature Americans – especially now that we’re trumped into mimicking a wannabe super reunion of KGB puppeteers, mocking what they can hack, but never bury, unless with presidential cooperation – is insufferable.

Violence results when mob rule infects civil debate with the belief that while all are created equal, none are as equal as the crude and rude trouncing peaceful assembly with obnoxious rhetoric grasping for extension over extinction.

Forsaking, agreeing to disagree civility in favor of servicing treachery, fueling the minions of madmen profaning biblical guidance, defiling fellow human beings and downgrading our Land of the Free, to a Russian footstool – is massive dereliction of duty, treason.

Nevertheless, regardless of personal political preferences, instead of becoming what has become the lowest ever bottom of America’s Home of the Brave, we must elect to be and do unto others as we would have them be and do unto us – for most Americans remain above, an eye for an eye.

Echoes of Truth despite Reflections of Wild Boars

Posted on Updated on

Miro driving smallEvery time I allow my ever ready for adventure ChiPoo to escape the confines of home, her first action as she races into the outside world, is to release an impressive, ear piercing announcement of her taking the field, at breakneck speed right to the edge of her outer boundary — no electric fence nor wall is necessary to maintain her power over the lay-of-the-land, for it is her presumed, raison d’être.

Regardless of race, creed, gender or talent, Oscar like awards are subjectively dealt out over lifetimes.  Though, admittedly, more often, it’s Hearts with a ravenous Queen of Spades, than a winning hand from MSNBC for Melissa Harris-Perry.

The deck, too stacked in Wall Street board rooms by bankers producing sequels to, The Big Short too small to prevail, they stuff 99% of humanity into, the envelope please in the out-sourcing Room.

Until the Oscars of life are awarded to those who run the race like Jesse Owens, the ever increasing global danger is our failure to imagine beyond the hyperbole of self-serving politicians — some with ambitions as destructive as an Olympically defeated master race dictator like Karl Rove’s puppeteer.

Most often life isn’t an Oscar winning film, especially when we choose choices like Cruz’s Garden of Eden, and the lowest hanging fruits of justice:  senators refusing to consider replacing a deceased Supreme Court Justice who preached once its original ink dried, the Constitution died.

Despite our Founding Father’s lack of crystal ball expertise and inability to anticipate a Bridge of Spies between the FBI, Apple and Hillary, Franklin nonetheless suggested the possibility that, those who give up their liberty for more security neither deserve liberty nor security.

Unlike The Martian, there is no bringing us home to greatness, unless we are a nation forever progressing forward.  On Oscar Sunday, decisions, limited only by lack of diversity, are announced amidst tears, laughter, applause, speeches, regret and the politics of blackout boycott.

On Super Tuesday, decisions, limited only by the will of the people to demand greater value for their vote, will be announced amidst jeers & cheers, speeches of concession and for those herded and huddled by PACs for regression, the politics of hate.

In 2016, We the People are contesting via a personification of our built-up resentment, a coronation and a Mad Max escapee from the arrogance asylum.  So which will it be for us January 20, 2017…

  • Revenge on the We Built That gang
  • Decades old recipient of constant onslaught from every side, now potentially FBI investigated, dynasty, next
  • Huffing and puffing bore salivating over under-minding our exceptional law of the land:  The Golden Rule

This election, though not a feel good movie, is based on the truth and lies we tell ourselves, when the lights are low – produced by Corporatism, directed by partisans and starring those who vote and those who avoid the Spotlight, of civic responsibility.

Nevertheless, The Revenant self within is beckoned by the peace that comes from surviving the American saga – now recognizing right from wrong, justice and injustice, equality and discrimination, economic opportunity and income disparity.  Can’t we see the dishonesty in those who shout volumes of vagueness, provoking violence among those most vulnerable to the fear and frustration that accompanies, feeling being passed over, forgotten or ignored?

To the degree we are mesmerized by the least our political system has to offer, we echo 1930’s Germany, in 2016 politics behind the politics of a ratings crazed Media, rented lobbyists bribing career politicians and ranting Demagogues.

Miro Say What SmallUntil we stop fearing progress, oil slicked money changers will remain the greatest terror threat to our environment, rainbow and melting pot.
