The Republicans and democrats are crooks and criminals who use the ballot box to hold onto power.
America is being looted by war profiteers and promise makers.
The U.S. policy (includes tax policy, financial deregulation, trade policy, anti-labor policy, and much more.) for the past 50 years has been aggressively dedicated to shifting income share away from the poor and middle class and into the pockets of the already rich. It’s not the result of mysterious global forces, or technology, or China, or structural problems concerning the skills and education of our workforce. Rather, it is the direct result of policy choices made by Democrats and Republicans alike.
We’ve allowed our country to be taken from us, for the benefit of the few and the total decimation of the vast many.
Our only real hope for democracy is that we get the money out of politics entirely and establish a system of publicly funded elections.
American education ranks 33rd out of 39 industrialized countries.
While America spends ten times what every other nation spends on defense, citizens aren’t even safe from one another. More rapes are committed each day in the U.S.A. then anywhere else in the world.
Year after year, the U.S. locks up more of its own citizens then any other country on the planet.
Black citizens are pulled over more often and given longer sentences, than whites, for the same crimes. Although black Americans smoke pot at a nearly identical rate as whites, they are nearly four times more likely to be arrested because of it.
In America there are 2.5 million homeless children and 40,000 homeless U.S. veterans on any given night that no one in America gives a rats ass about. As a matter of a fact, Americans spend more money each year on pet food then what they spend on the homeless.
There is no honor in America because what is honorable about stealing the land, the resources, the labor, the music, the culture, the technology of others and claiming it as your own? Americans have no honor, not even the Marines because they know they are not liberators but invaders everywhere they go. Don’t believe me? Then why is that war crimes follow the U.S. military everywhere they go? Well, why is it that Agent Orange, tiger cages, waterboarding, rape, torture and police brutality are as American as apple pie? And no one has/is done or doing anything at all to stop the abusers? Instead it is the whistleblowers who get punished. Because the U.S. military are baby killers who rape and plunder for big oil.
In America the police will lock you up and or blacklist or shadow-ban you so that you will never work again and then call it free speech. How’s that Constitution working out for Edward Snowden? Or Julian Assange? Or Colin Kaepernick? Answer me that, you can’t because America’s freedoms are like everything else, fucking fake! Yeah, I said it and I guess that if I don’t like it here I can get the fuck out, right? But what happened to my right to redress my grievances? See, it is, just like you, all fucking bullshit. Do I have the right to a different economic system other then crony capitalism? No, you won’t let us vote on anything of any great importance so what’s the god damn point anyways? Can I vote out this stupid drug war? No, so stop claiming that I have rights when you clearly have taken them all away. In America, you/we have no rights. Either you play by your corporate masters rules or you can go live in the streets. If you want to work in America be prepared to suck a lot of cock and to kiss a lot of ass. They call it the casting couch and they have one almost everywhere you go. And even if you obey every order given by a cop, chances are you’ll still get shot.
An unarmed man who was shot and killed by an Arizona police officer in January cried, complied with police orders and begged for his life before the fatal firing, according to a newly released police report.
America was the number one polluter in the world but we moved some of our industries to China and now China is the number one polluter in the world and America is number two.
You want the god damn truth? My bet is, you can’t handle the truth!
Americans will not stand up and protect her leaders so learn from the past and don’t repeat it. Whistleblowers should keep the truth to themselves because in America you will face the long arm of the law if you dare to speak the truth. What they force feed you everyday in the news/media is total bullshit.
Drugs really aren’t that strong or dangerous or they wouldn’t keep coming out with stronger versions like crack for cocaine or fetanyl for heroin or wax for weed, right? They would instead come out with lighter versions. The real problem is that some people are too weak minded for drugs. Not that users are weak minded because they were abused and are now just self medicating. But I mean the people who keep ending up in jails and rehabs because they really can’t handle their drugs or alcohol and consequently make the rest of us look bad while justifying the governments phony war on drugs.
They won’t even let you kneel, uh, I mean protest. You are forced to pledge to the imperialist and war mongers. You must pledge to racism, sexism, ageism, war profiteering, police brutality because you wouldn’t want to offend the baby killing troops, right? I mean those mother fuckers have never and I mean not once protected our rights as they were trampled on by teachers, bosses, landlords, judges, politicians, bankers, you name it. Where the fuck were the Marines to protect my/our rights? Oh yeah, they were in Afghanistan for 17 fucking years unable to beat a bunch of goat herders who don’t have a navy, an air force or even a military budget. Right? With the best equipped, best funded military in the world. Right? Fuck the U.S. military, I’m protected by two large bodies of water in case you didn’t notice known as the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. The U.S. military has never, not once protected any of us, ever. It’s all lies. The U.S. military is not protecting me or you at all, remember 9/11 or Pearl Harbor? And the Boston marathon bombing, where was the NSA, spying on the Pope? America has the most rapes and murders of any nation anywhere in the world. You’re not protected, it’s all bullshit. America arms both sides and profits off of others pain and suffering. America committed genocide against the natives and is now playing cowboy and Indian with the Mexicans/Latinos. Openly putting their children in cages where they are raped and tortured by federal agents. Fuck the troops, because the U.S. military are baby killers who rape and plunder for big oil.
No one has ever died from marijuana. While organized religion has killed millions but marijuana is illegal and religion is not. A top global health agency has declared the main ingredient in medical cannabis nonaddictive and nontoxic, according to a new report.
In 2016, over 64,000 people in the United States died from opioid overdoses — either from painkillers, heroin, or fentanyl (a synthetic opioid). To put that number in perspective, that’s more Americans killed by opioids in 365 days than were killed during the entirety of the Vietnam War.
Cannabis’s success in treating chronic pain is echoed in a 2018 review of more than 10,000 abstracts on the topic. Also published in the European Journal of Internal Medicine, the large-scale review offers individual conclusions about marijuana’s ability to treat a variety of conditions.
In 1970, Congress passed the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act, which placed marijuana in the most restrictive category of drugs having no permissible use in medical practice.
About 800,000 Americans are arrested annually for marijuana offenses, mostly simple possession.
I’ve looked high and low, but I can’t find the disastrous consequences of marijuana use apparent anywhere other than the Drug Czar’s predictably propagandized press releases. Whenever the government claims that marijuana will cause you to crash your car, just look for the corpses. Where are they?
No one can hear me. In America they smear the truth tellers. Kill the messengers. Blacklist, shadow-ban, refuse to share, unless I stroke your fragile egos and support your grotesquely narrow world view. Don’t share/donate I’m use to it. Call me crazy, call me edgy but you can’t stop talking about me.
Your city council pays one police brutality settlement after another, year after year, right? But why not just pay for better police training? There is a reason. It’s called counter-insurgency and it is a military tactic to control and subdue large populations by making them fear the police. Because you/we outnumber the police and because your politicians are crooks and criminals they fear you. Your city council members also allow the local police to legally rape your moms and daughters and as long as they claim it was consensual it’s legal. In public this is called a loophole but behind the public’s back it’s called a perk.
When you go to jail, you can either do your time or let the time do you but that choice is always yours to make. Drugs are no different, either you do drugs or you allow the drugs to do you, which one is it? When you get high are you still in control of yourself or are you sloppy ass drunk and can’t even think straight? See, there’s a difference. Are you enjoying your high or are you constantly looking out the blinds worried about the police? Some drugs are fun while some drugs just get you spun. And who wants to pay to be paranoid schizophrenic?
There’s no such thing as ghost. Don’t believe me? I’m selling my pet ghost in mason jars for just $19.99 plus shipping/handling. Buy two and the second one is free, just pay shipping. Makes a perfect gift/pet. While supplies last. Not available in any store. Allow 6 to 8 weeks for delivery. Dealers inquire within. Buy by the gross and save. To order send to…
No such thing as an honest politician. No such thing as a generous rich person. Ask any poor person and he will give you the shirt off of his back while a rich man won’t give the crumbs from his plate to save a starving child.
Drug cases keep cops busy, courts busy and jails to over capacity. Which makes it possible to farm out prison construction and control to private industries. Private prison companies can then trade prison slave labor on Wall Street at a profit. Making slavery legal again.
Tell me this, is every single politician beholden to the NRA or the military industrial complex or Big Oil? No, of course not but they are invested in them. So then our system is not broken, as they claim, it is actually rigged. Rigged so that the house always wins and you and me will always lose. Look at how many athletes and musicians made it, only to die broke. But you’ve never heard of a politician who died penniless, have you?
If America really is a democracy as they claim then why are there no term limits? That sounds more like nobility because until they die you can’t get rid of American senators. But there is absolutely nothing noble about sucking on the public tit while investing in the same companies that they legislate. Democrats and Republicans both invested in defense contractors who’s main employer is the U.S. military while voting on Bush’s fraudulent wars. The American system isn’t broken, it’s rigged to keep the rich getting richer and the poor to get children to feed to the war machine. We all know that in America it is the rich who start the wars but never do any fighting and will even fake illnesses to avoid serving their countries. All the while, thanks to wall street, profiting from death and misery.
There is no law in America against the police stealing your property and filing no charges against you. It’s called “civil asset forfeiture laws,” in case you think I’d make such a thing up. Certainly there is no law in America that prevents a police officer from shooting you in your back with your hands raised in the air while you are unarmed as long as the police officer claims self defense.
Police departments are actually amazing at public relations. Each department often has its own communications director, some have full PR departments, and high-ranking officers interact with the local media more than any other profession in our country. This may explain how police officers are held up as the ethical and moral heroes of our country in spite of the reality that they have a rate of domestic violence 300 percent higher than NFL athletes.
In families of police officers, domestic violence is two-to-four times more likely than in the general population — from stalking and harassment to sexual assault and even homicide. As the National Center for Women and Policing notes, two studies have found that at least 40% of police officer families experience domestic violence, in contrast to 10% of families in the general population.
The Innocence Project has helped free hundreds of wrongly convicted people from prison in the last decade, and they point to studies which estimate that between 2.3% and 5% of all prisoners in the U.S. are innocent, which suggests that roughly 46,000 to 100,000 people are currently serving time for crimes that they did not commit. Keep that in mind the next time you are tempted to believe that your innocence will protect you from prosecution.
So where are these freedoms that we celebrate every fourth of July? Free to what exactly? Free to do as we are told or get arrested or even worse? Free to go to school as you are told or get arrested for truancy. Free to get up at the crack of dawn, five or six days a week. Free to bust your balls and dream of a raise that never comes. Free to kiss ass all the way up the corporate ladder. Free to get on your back and ride the casting couch to success. Where are these freedoms?
Free to vote for the lesser of two evils? Free to own a gun, a right that they have from the very country we escaped from. What you didn’t know that it is legal to hunt in merry old England? That’s where fox hunts come from, right? I know, I know, your “right to bear arms” isn’t about hunting but protecting yourselves from tyranny, right? So then what happened? Why haven’t you turned them on your corporate masters?
GEO Group, the country’s biggest private prison company, donated a total of $225,000 through a subsidiary to a pro-Trump super-PAC, according to campaign disclosures. The super-PAC, Rebuilding America Now, had been heartily endorsed by the Trump team; Mike Pence said contributions to the group would be “one of the best ways to stop Hillary Clinton and help elect Donald Trump our next president.” But according to a lawsuit filed by the Campaign Legal Center, the prison company’s decision to fund the super-PAC allegedly violated federal law, which prohibits government contractors from making political contributions.
America is being controlled by lobbyists, bankers, corporate executives, and anyone with money to pay. These people, only interested in lining their own pockets with gold, have little care for the pain of average Americans. Americans are being hurt by career politicians’ cowardice and inability to take a sincere stand on behalf of the communities they supposedly represent.
From your TV, media professionals tell you that politicians and the local police have only good intentions, that corporate entities are great because they provide you with fast food and cheap gas, and that U.S. Democracy is the best system of government in the world. They convince you that voting is your civic duty and that Democrats and Republicans are more different than they are similar.
They are nothing but mouthpieces for corporations whose only interest is in their own profits. Education? Not important. Environmental issues? Counter-productive. Combating racism, sexism, poverty? A waste of money. The arts? Don’t make me laugh. Health reform? Only if it makes them more money, likely through mandatory, private, expensive health care. War? Hell yes! More war, more war, it’s great for the oil companies and great for the arms dealers! Deregulating banks? That’s what they’re talking about!
Don’t be fooled by their campaign speeches. They poll their audience then say what the polls show they ought to say.
As rich countries, strip poorer countries of their natural resources in an attempt to re-stabilize their own, the people of poor countries become increasingly desperate. This deteriorating situation, besides pressuring rich countries to allow increased immigration, further exacerbates already stretched political tensions and threatens global political and economic security.
There are two problems for our species’ survival – nuclear war and environmental catastrophe – and we’re hurtling towards them. Knowingly.
