Great American Democracy

 

War, Inc.

Billy Bragg and Wilco

Washed in the blood of the Lamb

Authentically one person changes the

The lives of many inauthentic people.

Consumeristic missionaries spreading

War in the name of corporistic greed.

No longer American impirialism, just advertising

And sales and profits.

Missionary position

Bringing converts by the millions

Through cultural destruction.

Middle Eastern American Democratic Capitalistic Culture destruction machine.

Sad but true. Truer still, there is nothing missionary at all about the position our government has us in. Patrick

Greed is the name of the game. Unfortunately. Well said, Dayvid.

And all for the greenback. Do you ever think maybe George Washington would like his picture removed?
God bless,

Thanks, I have been wordless since the election. This is personal on so many levels, again, thanks for saying what I could not find the words for.

It's what Eisenhower warned about with the emergence of the military-industrial complex. What's really scary is that now with so many entrenched interests making money off the waging of war, how in the hell will it all ever stop? And when we run out of so-called "enemies" overseas, i.e. people who are upset that the US is bombing, murdering and occupying their land to exploit natural resources (oil, gas, poppy fields, lithium, diamonds, gold, silver, etc.) will they just roll the tanks on the American people to feed the war machine? It's almost happening now. Excellent piece.

Dayvid,
Your last line pretty much says it all. I don't like to get political, but it is getting pretty rough out there.

Peace, love and light,
Amber
