Okay, I know in my last post I said I wouldn’t be posting on here for the foreseeable future. But, seriously America?
Endless wars based on lies? Drone murders? Black sites? Torture? Big money owning our politics? Illegal wire-tapping and spying on Americans? Kids in cages? Racism and inequality? Militarized police? Police brutality? Out of control use of chemicals on people in our city streets demanding justice and equality? Protestors being snatched off the streets and thrown into unmarked vehicles by federal officers who refuse to identify themselves? Supporting our…allies?—while they bomb buses full of kids? Pardoning war criminals? Unbelievable rates of incarceration? No affordable healthcare? An uncontrolled pandemic killing hundreds of thousands of Americans and driving people into poverty and…$1800.00!—to survive on for nine months while a $741 billion defense authorization act is approved? And don’t forget that billionaires gained nearly $1 trillion in wealth during the pandemic, and politicians profited from insider trading based on their knowledge of the dangerous potential of the disease–all while people lost their lives, their loved ones, their jobs, their businesses, their homes…
I could go on. And on.
But seriously, America, this is what some of us are ready to burn DC for? Some angry white folks who didn’t get their way in an election storm the capitol building to show their support for a man—WHO LOST?!
We have truly lost our way. And it is way past time to honestly ask ourselves why.
