Ready Set...Repeat

I am reposting this piece sans some time sensitive language, it was written right before Christmas of 07'.
I am nopt strokiong myself but i must admit i haVE BEEN a bit of a prophet

I live in fanatical netherworld of Patriotic fervor barely contained by high taxes and a bad economy. I guess the subpar living conditions provide just enough of a distraction for people to go home after work instead of joining a militia.
That is what irks me.Underlying all the Patriotism is a naivete a complete gullability.

People trust the Government.The modern American man has forgotten why we had all these checks and balances built in to our government in the first place.

Our founding fathers simply created a structure that would require magical conspiratorial powers to pull off any bullshit on the American People at least for any prolonged period.

Just like the evolution of the urban rat sometimes you have to build a better trap .
Which leads us to our current State Of The Union.
The Government we trust so much would love to wish you a happy election.
May you create a debt so large you work every day of your life to recreate this experience ONCE a year.
May your property value tumble and your mortgage foreclose.
We will be there to help you pick up the pieces, maybe.
Especially at this time of year.
May you prepare for continued, neverending war. Invest in 'our' economy, it is a violent hedgefund.
Most of all, tell your kids to tune in........

Yes We Can...Can't we?

It is getting down to the wire.

One week to go.

As I write this I am listening to John McCain.

He is a fighter.
He's an innovator.
He's elderly(experienced).

He has the scars to prove it.

Lets face it America. We are at a crossroads. We are at the precipice of decline or growth. Our current financial 'crisis' is a manufactured hedgefund on future depression (Big Oil).

I know it is complicated and hard to understand. But each of us should ask why we do not prepare now for an inevitable scarcity of the worlds most precious commodity.
Because...thats why.
Each of us should ask why our Government is not at the forefront of this inevitable transformation.
Just Because...thats why.
If you do the math you will find out who owns the Oil futures. Who bought thousands of barrels in advance at extrememly low rates ($50 or less per barrel). Playing poker with consumers savings and seeing just how much they can squeeze before growth is halted in every sector of our economy. Including stupid, oil (petroleum) addicted Wall Street.
But what about the Bailout? (crack for crackheads thats what)

It is no accident gas prices have fallen a week before the election. The fact is they were off by a couple of weeks.

A lot of things need to happen in order for prices to fall. The ripple of these actions take weeks to show up at the pump.There are so many variables. Like I said, they stopped shaking us down a little too late to help McCain. At least I hope so.

The rich have never been richer.
But this election is about morale, survival, unity and of course, change.
The thick rhetoric is neccessary. There is soo much underlying bullshit in regards to race in America that there are TWO conversations going at once at all times ( BrownYellowBlack and The White Conversation). The broad sweeping language consolidates the sentiments of everyone.
But there are a lot of people who are afraid of Black Men. People who would not let a Black doctor work on them. People who think all mexicans are here illegally. People who just don't trust 'the blacks'.

Like I wrote before "there is equal and ample space at the bottom for Black and
White people".

I think most of us get it.

I think most of us would let the black nuero surgeon save us.
