you're reading...


The power-elite, the “money,” who run this country and reside in luxury atop the food chain, largely white, obscenely wealthy, and certain they are all that matter, are now nearing the culmination of their decades-long effort to turn this country into a Fascist state masquerading as a Democracy.

Their army is the Republican Party.

The marching orders of this Army of the Republic-ans are clear:

1. The prime directive is to destroy the regulations that stand in the money’s way of reaping ever larger profits.

2. Keep the ordinary citizens of the country at each other’s throats, thus enabling the prime directive to be more easily attained by having the citizens occupied by hatred for each other and so unable to see what is happening clearly.

3. Destroy the Social Safety net, thus making it easier to attain step 2.

This cynical agenda is now transparently obvious to anyone who is still able to connect the dots. And the danger that this ability presents has given cause to the money’s ongoing efforts to destroy education.

At least the Ku Klux Klan possessed the gene of shame which led them to cover their faces.

However, this bunch, this Army of the Republic-ans, emboldened by the promise of vast wealth and unfettered power conferred on them by the real power, the money, has no such gene for shame. This bunch has the shameless indecency to show their ugliness and commit their crimes in broad daylight.

And fuck you if you don’t like it!

You wanna to take it to the Supreme Court? To any court? Don’t make us laugh! These self-righteous “Christian” criminals – who couldn’t care what you think – just held their annual convention of the biggest grifters in this country, CPAC, in Victor Orban’s Hungary. Hungary – a Fascist State!

This Army of the Republic-ans has successfully convinced far too many of this country’s citizens that even though they are anti-women, against healthcare, and steadfastly against making it easy to vote, they are really for them.

This is an evil bunch whose orders are to steadfastly refuse to take assault weapons off the streets no matter how many children are killed. This is to their benefit. Every massacre keeps our minds occupied with its horror as it sucks up the oxygen of our TV news. This is the extent to which the Army of the Republic-ans will go to, to stay in power.

If this wasn’t actually happening one would think this was some kind of surreal farce. Purely imaginary.

There was a TV show in the 60’s called “The Prisoner.” Its conceit is exactly how it is and has always been. It is a clear-eyed view of how the world is run. The invisible hand of the money runs everything, and the Politicians, in this case The Army of the Republic-ans, are all Number Two. And, in Number Two’s eyes, except for our vote and our tax money, we are not even counted.

As George Carlin said: “It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it.”

  1. Our election last Saturday has managed to swing some normality back to the fore in Australian politics. The women are angry and they voted accordingly.

  2. Climate change will get us eventually — if the mass murderers don’t kill us all first.

  3. All the above has become increasingly obvious for years, while the Democrats have been asleep at the switch and lost their backbone….and while Biden was fooling himself into thinking he could “work across the aisle” and unite the country. How naive can you get? This is WAR, and Trump is Putin the second.. .

    • Agreed…I fear it is all too late though. The worst of us have always been in power because of their insane need to amass, the people have never been clear enough to connect the dots, we have trashed our only habitat, and we are headed for extinction. Other than that, stay well MM, keep educating people about the greats of music, and continue…

  4. Whoa. I am sitting here stunned. Those three marching orders you cite just explained what has been inexplicable to me every since he who shall not be named first announced his candidacy for president. Nothing else can explain the godawful mess we’re in. #2 and #3 are diabolical.

    • Liz, it is as it is and has always been. The worst of humanity is always in control because of their selfish need to be. And, being the worst, the most self-serving, they shroud all the rest of us in their slime. Our eyes have always failed to be open to what is and has always been going on. I have come to the sad conclusion that human awakening on a grand scale is impossible. Dylan said: “there’s somethin’ goin’ on, but you don’t know what it is…do ya Mr. Jones? Carlin said: “It’s called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it.” I have long thought that we are a seriously flawed life form headed for extinction. We have stupidly trashed our only habitat. To believe that any advanced life form in the universe would want to come here is laughable. It is sad to know that the sentiments of Dylan and Carlin apply to all of humanity all over the globe. Thanks Liz, stay well – and continue…
