All Aboard the Bullshit Express

Like everything else corporate whoredom shits out, the very nature of the language is undermined and debauched daily.  Concepts that embody morality and sacrifice turn into game shows for self-aggrandizement.

Heroism is now unrecognizable, the mindless commands of a steroid enhanced actor replacing intelligence and moral fortitude.  A bag full of money features in the teaser for this reckless show to risk life and serious injury so that one can perform on TV under the fake banner of “The Hero.”

Enough of this programming, this Pavlovian conditioning, has warped the social fabric of the nation.  Heroism is itself a marketing slogan for mercenary militarists, Hollywood snake oil salesmen and skeezy “reality” show producers.  And so it is dead in this nation.  The true heroes are labeled state enemies and criminals, sent to prison while the pig ignorant couch slugs gawk on at gibberish like “The Hero.”

Modern American heroes include Edward Snowden, who exposed NSA mass surveillance.  And William Binney, who exposed NSA mass surveillance.  And Adrienne Kinne, who exposed NSA mass surveillance.  And Mark Klein, who exposed NSA mass surveillance.  Is anyone noticing a pattern?

And Bradley Manning who exposed US war crimes, lies and deceptions of the US State Department, and is currently being tried in a military kangaroo court that won’t let him argue the actual reasons why he did what he did.  And Lieutenant Ehren Watada who refused to be deployed to Iraq on the grounds that it was a Crime Against the Peace, an illegal war of aggression, which he similarly was not allowed to say at his kangaroo court martial.

And Sibel Edmonds, the FBI translator who saw raw intelligence documenting massive US official complicit criminality and support for terrorists in Central Asia, but was fired from the FBI and gagged instead of rewarded and having her evidence used in prosecutions of wrongdoing.  And John Kiriakou who exposed CIA torture and was rewarded with jail time.  And Senator Bob Graham who would not let the 9/11 cover-up stand and has vehemently protested to this day the suppression of evidence of Saudi Arabian and other foreign government involvement in those attacks.

There are heroes in America today.  But they aren’t the kind that Hollywood sells to children.  They most certainly are not the jackasses playing on the outsides of skyscrapers to make some cash in the service of selling commercial air time – glorified car and beer salesmen.  Such a bastardization and trivialization of the meaning of the word is an insult to every thinking person on this planet.  Dwayne, “The Rock,” should apologize to the world in shame.  That’s not heroism, Dwayne.  Not even close.

Federal Reserve people on the record.  The collapse is still to come.  Dollar value is plummeting, and the US is in a quite unsustainable position spending more than it produces.
