What’s happening to my America? We are slowly becoming just like the enemies we have fought for generations. The US government has given a Halliburton subsidiary a contract to build detention centers in the US. Congress recently passed a law that allows the President to federalize State National Guards even at the opposition of said states Governors. Of course there is the Patriot Act which was passed even though few actually read it, and which goes against the very fabric with which this nation was created. The Pentagon has a 400 page document which calls for Phyops to be used against foreigners, but says that American may be exposed to this propaganda and that that’s ok. We have paramilitary contractors from companies like Blackwater patrolling in cities like New Orleans after hurricane Katrina, and they will be used in other domestic situations. Citizens can now be detained indefinitely and held without charges. They have limited access to lawyers, family and the evidence if any against them. There are also plans to shut down the civilian internet during “emergencies” because they deem it to be a weapon. Military Intelligence while unable to actively gather information on citizens is not prohibited from receiving it. So to those ends a myriad of gray agencies are now in place to provide them with said information. This includes NASA, the very agency Bush gave more money to to aid in “space exploration”. NASA uses its computer banks to data mine info provided by credit card companies and airlines. The Bush administration in league with the Pentagon have also deemed space as the property of the US and plans on weaponising it. Moreover we have committed ourselves to developing more nuclear weapons even though we have enough to blow up every major city in the world 20 times over. All this at a time when we have over 50 million people without health care, we have over five million more people below the poverty level, our students score near the bottom of western countries in math and science, and personal bankruptcy is at an all time high.
Time to hoist our flags higher, and slap more yellow ribbons on our SUV’s. Time for peaceful revolution.
