Life in AmeriCOnia and living with our NDT (New Domestic Terror)
Maybe the Mayan Calendar is predicting the end of America as we knew it? After all they didn’t count leap years, 12/21/2012 could be off by years or even decades. Maybe America really ended on September 11, 2001? Maybe it’s always been just an idea designed to distract us from the real issues from the very beginning?
So. This is it now, AmeriCOnia and our New Domestic Terror. Welcome to the New AmeriCOnian highway. We are On the Road, but Jack & Neal are dead, JFK & JFK Jr., Marilyn, MLK, John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Jenni Rivera & Nat Turner are all dead. Django’s here! The D is silent!
What does all of this mean? “Please, someone help me understand this confusion.” So, you’re confused by our new era of death, destruction and this brand new brand of NDT? In this Our New AmeriCOnia.
“He was such a nice boy, so quite. I can’t imagine he would do such a terrible thing, all of those poor little children.” You see the metamorphosis is finally complete. The chrysalis lies empty. The butterfly of death and destruction is borne. How did we get here? Why don’t you give the NRA a ring or all of the Congressmen & Senators chiseled into their contact lists. After all, the NRA isn’t concerned with public safety they’re concerned with private sales. Private sales for the gun manufacturers, private sales for the munitions manufacturers, private sales for the Capitalist Agenda, Private Sales for AmeriCOnia!
“How on earth did this happen, how did we get here?” In a snapshot? Because we like things quick & e-z, nice and neat for our immediate gratification, Insta-Crap! I guess we can begin by taking a peek at our transmogrification and by lumping Viet Nam, Grenada (how’s that for a laugh!), the Contras, Afghanistan and Iraq under the heading of The AmeriCOnian Empire? We could then pin blame on the House & Senate their incessant need to take bribes, I mean Lobbying money, for larger and larger sums of money from Corporate-AmeriConia in order to continue its excessive march toward absolute corruption, add to this the Khristian Right for their intolerant behavior, the Catholic Church with its misogynistic dogma, our Military-Industrial-Congressional-University-Pharmaceutical Complex for its insidious greed, why now we can even include the Boy Scouts of America! Just like the NSDAP Jugen under Ernst Rohm! How proud all of this makes me feel. GO RAIDERS! GO COWBOYS!
Do you really want to know how we got here? Truly? Okay, then set down that Big Mac & fries. Walk past your 48 oz Slurpee and your half eaten stale bag of Cheetos over to the television and turn it off. Take a walk into your bathroom and stand directly in front of your mirror. Take a good, long, hard look. Breathe in and hold it. Then let it out. You, We are the problem. The American Citizen is dead, just like the Martians of Chronicle fame. Drink up on that Slurpee and forget, because nothing is going to stop this unending violence until the system collapses in on itself and is rebuilt by Citizens who take the time, care enough and are not controlled by immediate gratification & Insta-Crap. It is only going to get worse until these Citizens arise. I eagerly pray for their arrival.
