John Kaminski: 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
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
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
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
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
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
