Epitome of Class Struggle

I worked for a “corporate predator” for 25 years. At the end of that time, they “delayered” me. (Orwell was a genius).

In a recent cost cutting, belt tightening, competitive driven move, a man who once reported to me was “deselected”. (That’s why the word “Orwellian” exists)

This man, a good man who worked hard but injured his back rather seriously, figured that the entire bottle of Oxycontin, along with a chaser of Vicodin, would make him feel, well, no pain. He was 41 years old and had worked for the corporation for over 15 years.

His boss, the predator puppet that made the “deselection” decision, showed up at the man’s funeral. His wife had to be restrained.

And, so, the class struggle continues while The Regime attempts to pawn philanthropy off onto “the private sector”.

Casey's Song

I write and appreciate all genres of music, as I do poetry and other forms of literature.

In fact, I appreciate and respect those who differ with me on matters of society, war, peace, poverty. The only caveat I have with that one is that, while appreciating and respecting those who differ with me, I have little or no use for those who attack people personally with whom they differ. In my humble opinion, this is a tactic used by those who have no legitimate argument with which to debate.

With very few exceptions, I don’t post my poetry and/or music here. I save that for my web site.

I recently posted two poems on this blog about the x-mas season and its “true” meaning.

Now I’d like to make an exception with music.

I've recently written a new song. It's in honor of the son of one of my good friends, Cindy Sheehan.

I sent the song to Cindy and she set me straight on a couple of lyrics that weren’t accurate. She did say that she appreciated the effort.

I had sent her a song entitled “Soldiers Of Peace” when I first learned about Casey on the Mount Diablo Peace Center message board. Although I dedicated “Soldiers Of Peace” to Cindy and the memory of Casey, the song was written previous to my knowledge of Casey’s murder.

I wrote “Casey's Song”, however, specifically for Cindy, Casey and their family.

As I told Cindy, the song is more than a memorial for Casey. It's my gift to all of the families of The Goldstar Families for Peace and even those families who aren't members but have lost loved ones in The Regime's march toward world hegemony. It's truly a heart felt gift as it's given in the form of that which I do best, write.

You can listen to the song and read the lyrics here.

The copyright for “Casey's Song” is still pending, but I believe I'm protected. I just didn't want to wait to share this.

To friendship,
Michael

It’s for the pride and greed
of speakers shouting lies
that mention freedom’s cause
and praise the tool that dies.

Too Much Power

I watched “Beyond Treason” tonight. I highly recommend it.

It merely reinforced what I knew already; the American military carried out “experiments” on unsuspecting subjects. I knew that they “utilized” military personnel, prisoners, etc. This DVD just reinforces my belief that there’s far too much power in far too few hands. There’s not enough oversight of any governmental agency, be it military or otherwise.

That’s why I believe that “it’s time for a national (second constitutional) convention”.

That quote and the discussion that follows, along with many other justifications to change or seriously modify the elitist driven constitution that was drawn up at the end of the 18th century, can be found on the TRG (true republican governance) message board, which is part of the Direct Democracy League.

What American Can Forget?

We who are outraged at The Regime’s unwarranted wiretapping have been accused recently of forgetting about September 11, 2001.

I haven’t forgotten about 9/11. It was a horrific day in the history of the former United States. We must never forget it.

However, The Regime, via its front man, is using that tragedy which killed so many innocent people to invade the privacy of American citizens just as Hitler used the Reichstag Fire to invade the privacy of German citizens. 9/11 is merely an “excuse” that The Regime uses to circumvent ethics and laws. It’s in the name of citizen protection that The Regime moves forward with its abuse of power.

The Regime says that there hasn’t been another 9/11 during its totalitarian rule. Have we all forgotten that there was no 9/11 before September 11, 2001? Is it The Regime’s over the top so called leadership that’s stopped further 9/11s from happening? Using that logic, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, H. W and Clinton stopped a 9/11 from happening.

Taking that logic further, it was under The Regime that September 11, 2001 happened. Is The Regime really keeping us safe or is its incompetence, or more sinister behavior, the reason that September 11, 2001 happened?
