Who Is Responsible

February 26, 2018

From a more global perspective than

Merely looking out the windshield

Looking to the 45th failed leader

To stop gun violence when he

Like nearly all of his predecessors

Is merely a tool in the war chest

Of the military industrial complex

He can order a drone strike

Kill as many sovereign citizens

That strikes his fancy

Watch in the comfort of

The “situation” room

With his generals, who

Told him what needed to be done

 

“I have this feeling that whoever is elected president, like (Bill) Clinton was, no matter what you promise on the campaign trail – blah, blah, blah – when you win, you go into this smoke-filled room with the twelve industrialist capitalist scum-fucks who got you in there.

And you’re in this smoky room, and this little film screen comes down … and a big guy with a cigar goes, “Roll the film.”

And it’s a shot of the Kennedy assassination from an angle you’ve never seen before … that looks suspiciously like, it’s from the grassy knoll.

And then the screen goes up and the lights come up, and they go to the new president,

“Any questions?”

“Er, just what my agenda is.”

“First we bomb Baghdad.”

“You got it …”

 

– Bill Hicks

 

(How can we stop, that shooter?)

 

Then that is “sold” to the

American public who eats

It up like Pavlov’s dog

That our “freedom”

Is being defended

After all it is just a

Few thousand people

Who have become unpersons

That were faceless

And nameless, to US

(Meanwhile, not to their families)

Maybe he is afraid that if

He takes away your guns

Someone will take away his

Then he will not have any

Toys to play with in some

Sovereign citizen’s sandbox

While looking for resources

To steal then profit from

 

“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. “

 

– Smedley D. Butler

“War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America’s Most Decorated Soldier”

 

There are so many wires

Controling this petulant puppet

He has lost his ability to speak

And the one attached to real

Human emotion and empathy

Fell off a long time ago, so sad

 

“In this struggle, the heaviest burden will continue to be borne by the good people of Afghanistan and their courageous armed forces. As the prime minister of Afghanistan has promised, we are going to participate in economic development to help defray the cost of this war to us.”

– Trump’s speech 8-21-17

(Sounds like coercive theft to me)

 

So there is no conspiracy

Of some mystical 1% power

Doing this to earth’s inhabitants

It is the inhabitants themselves

Accepting manufactured consent of

What they need is what they’re sold

When life affirming alternatives

Must be considered viable

Blaming oil as a means of power

To fuel our vehicles and life

Is lost when it becomes another

Resource such as lanthanum

From Afghanistan is stolen to

Energize “new” electric cars

Connecting the dots only shows

Who is responsible for the violence

The consumer and the taxpayers

We buy the products that “need”

Resources elsewhere on the globe

 

“Lanthanum is used as a component of nickel-metal hydride batteries, whose most important commercial use is in hybrid cars.”

– Softschoolsdotcom

 

But alas I digress

And I look into the mirror

To see who is guilty

Not liking what I see

For the one who is

Ultimately responsible

Is unfortunately me
