      American sunset


      Look dear! Don't the chemtrails
      look lovely tonight




      By John Kaminski

      Oh, the gnashing of teeth, the beating of breasts, the wailings of
      woe.

      Bush and the Republicans stole the election! Big surprise, eh? The
      neocon Nazis have done nothing but break the law since before they
      ever took office. You were expecting fair play from them, perchance?

      Much as I admire many of my friends who are desperately trying to
      tell everyone that the exit polls matched the election results in
      all the states with a paper trail, but didn't in states without one —
      suspiciously and substantially favoring Bush instead — they all
      are, to put it politely, whizzing into the wind. Perhaps they hope
      to find a prosecutor aspiring to career suicide, or maybe a judge
      who wishes to see his family killed in some kind of odd accident, an
      inexplicable plane crash, perhaps.

      Of course, it is of some substantive concern that the American
      electoral process has been placed in the hands of partisan
      corporations, guaranteeing about as much integrity as typical
      government reports saying antidepressants are good for children, or
      the feds have no idea who committed the anthrax murders, or
      corporations should not be held liable for their lethal products
      because it's bad for business.

      Your vote didn't count last time. Why would you expect it would now?

      And anyway, here's a more important question.

      How, in an election year where the central questions should have
      been about waging wars based on well-known lies and throwing away
      the lives of American soldiers chasing phantoms who don't exist — as
      well as questioning the cynical coverup of the greatest crime in
      American history, which 3,000 Americans were murdered by these same
      phantoms .... how could these momentous questions be overshadowed on
      election day by a relatively irrelevant brouhaha about gay marriage?

      In fact, it was because the loyal opposition chose not to mention
      these issues, but instead participated in the media coverup of these
      crimes, because in fact there is only one party in this country —
      the party of the banks. On that level this election was a complete
      sham. There was no real contest. So why are you so upset about the
      results of an election in which both candidates were saying the same
      thing? Hell, it's only too appropriate the results were manipulated,
      given the insincere similarity of the candidates.

      Evil electronic electioneering and deliberately distracting debates
      are not the top stories of this election.

      When all was said and done, your vote didn't really matter because
      John Kerry essentially agreed with everything Bush had done during
      his capital-crime-plagued first term. (Capital crimes, as in treason
      and mass murder.) Kerry promised to INCREASE the war effort in Iraq.
      He accepts the reality of the cover story of Arab hijackers. He
      helped write the Patriot Act. Fifteen years ago, he helped cover up
      the BCCI scandal, another one of the great robberies in American
      history.

      So why are so many so upset that Republican vote-counting executives
      stole the election for Bush in Ohio, Florida, Georgia, and God knows
      where else? We know having Kerry, Bush's fraternity brother, in the
      White House would have made absolutely no difference in terms of
      government policy.

      So why is everyone so upset that Kerry so quickly conceded, getting
      himself out that contrived dog-and-pony show as fast as possible?
      Why is anyone upset that Kerry lost? Nothing would have changed!

      Why bother working to overturn an election when success would mean
      installing a candidate who would do nothing different from the man
      who won? Now that's what I call a totally futile effort.

      No, there is a bigger question than vote fraud, or the manipulation
      of public opinion by unscrupulous media corporations, or the fact
      that the two political parties are actually one, and that the loyal
      opposition seeks only to emulate the party in power rather than
      oppose it, which means it no longer has a chance of winning anything.

      The biggest question of all is about the caliber — and the sanity —
      of the American people.

      The mask is off now.

      The lies used to justify the continuing slaughter of innocent people
      in Iraq fester like an infected scab on the psyche of the American
      people, who have become so twisted in their pursuit of narcotized
      tranquility that they are now even cheering the deaths of their own
      children who come home in boxes we are not allowed to see. How much
      more insane can it get before blissful blackness will alleviate our
      misery?

      If souls were faces, Americans would gaze into their bathroom
      mirrors each morning and see their rotting skin covered with oozing
      sores, putrescent pustules of their suicidal disease caused by their
      intransigent focus on tormenting trivialities, caused by their
      willing ignorance of their soldiers — their own children — raping
      Iraqi children, blowing Iraqi families to bits, then, as their deeds
      set into their curdled spirits, coming home and hanging themselves
      in the shattering silence of realizing their own horrified depravity.

      Do you have a child in the military?

      Chances are fairly good — if he is still alive — he has become a
      murderer, or a rapist, or that he has become sickened to the point
      that his life is ruined, which means that your life is ruined, if
      you have any feelings at all.

      This is America 2004. A willing blindness drapes the land like a
      shroud, where old men beat their war drums and young men say, "hey,
      this is really cool!" in the millisecond before they lose a limb to
      a land mine, or frag an unknown family into bleeding bits of
      twitching protoplasm.

      Americans have not only lost their souls into insane religious
      practices, they've lost their brains as well. What other country on
      Earth can't even keep track of its own voting process, that offers
      two candidates who are handpicked androids of the power elite, who
      both cheerily endorse senseless killing of people already oppressed
      by enemies invented by the very people who fight them?

      I ask again: Do you have a child in the military?

      Because if you don't, you will soon. What will you do when your
      child is drafted into the military and sent to Iraq to kill innocent
      people for reasons that you know in your heart are lies?

      Will you wave your flag, like most Americans do, just as you have
      dutifully cast your vote?

      The election is over. It didn't matter who won. What matters is that
      America has lost, and Americans eagerly helped her lose, just as
      Americans eagerly kill people all over the world for reasons that
      they know are lies. Since both candidates were pursuing the same
      policies in regard to making unjust war, in this election, Americans
      voted overwhelmingly — almost 100 percent — to kill their own
      children for reasons that they know are lies. And kill anyone else
      within convenient shooting distance.

      Long live the empire. Let the killing continue.

      Stop whining about the vote. You got exactly what you deserved. A
      homicidal liar with the weaponry — and the willingness — to kill
      everyone on the planet.

      This is the new American dream, and it's your worst nightmare.

      You have only yourself to thank for not paying attention. Have a
      nice day.
