A Rant that has One Life to Live

I never really wanted America to fall/fail. I have just wanted this Machiavellian machine for a country to do right by its citizens and the people around the world since America’s Yes-Men tout themselves and this land as the BEST. America has not done this thus placing them in the undesired but deserving category of FAILURE.

Over the years this beast for a government has manipulated countries to the point that they do not even recognize their rich culture and heritage. The media infiltration of America’s General Hospital good life has transformed reality into soap opera episodes. Therefore, leaving Bulgarians and Sudanese people reaching for The Guiding Light – but America’s light is being dimmed by its misdeeds. And, now As the World Turns not in America’s favor we, common everyday people, who may cling to religion are praying that the United States returns to The Bold and the Beautiful nation it once was.

The United States Congress poses as that great beacon of legislature that claims to answer to it residents; and then decides not to live up to its purpose because an opposing President sits in the White House. That alone is the essence of the failure and downfall: Donkey ego that tries to out match an inflated Elephant ego. This gets us nowhere. It also tarnishes the true mission of government. Yet politicians on both sides of the aisle have the audacity to criticize China’s State Council on its human rights breaches.

America in all its glory has built its wealth off the backs of the poor and darker people worldwide without ever once thinking about the inalienable rights of these people. The first inhabitants of North America, Native American’s, basic rights and freedoms were not even considered. No, our white countrymen slaughtered them; later bused the red skin leftovers to ill-prepared reservations, and then almost 200 years later decided it was necessary to ‘preserve’ the Cherokee’s history in a building on the National Mall. I am not sure if the few remaining Cherokee Indians appreciate this multi-million dollar gesture or not – but I do know that their spiritually has not been respectfully acknowledged or welcomingly received by the Lone Ranger (America).

America and its Christian zealots e.g. Billy, Eddie, and others have used religion and their brand of the spirit world (Holy Ghost) to control and brainwash the masses. As a result they have defied God and polluted His word. If the Good Book is accurate this act alone has and will continue to shorten the Days of Our Lives. Lives that resemble desperation, confusion, and anger.

The present state of America is an embarrassment. What happened to the integrity? The honor? The accountability? What makes a man from a foreign land want to defecate on the stars and stripes? I will tell you. The reason is on the hands of guilty white men who decided to adhere to their weak feelings of insecurity. They have ruined the nation as a result of this act. Pathetic! Now you, my children, and others will suffer (are suffering) a consequence just because we live here.

Thank God I am not too devastated by this: All great nations crumble. Unfortunately, America’s dissolution is occurring too soon. Entirely too soon! Even the Great Savior, Barack Obama, cannot save us from the ABYSS. He will say he can just like McCain will – but I recommend that you prepare for the worst.

I only have One Life to Live so why be quiet?

*For the record: I do not condone the act in the accompanying picture – but I do understand the sentiment.

Thanks, PM. I thought about sending it to a few papers - but I think they will dismiss it. Even the so called liberal papers.

These fools fussing over a "lipstick on a pig comment" and people are struggling to make it. People in Haiti are perishing after the hurricane.

America smells like...

I wonder what things would look like if someone could save us from ourselves...I mean if THE someone who could finally motivate us to do what we need to do to fix our own lives and situations actually showed up, would we recognize that person or continue to believe that we're all going to hell in a hand-basket.
I've been on a tripgenealogy for about the last two years and finding out more about my ancestors has really made them a major part of my thinking during this whole campaign, that and the fact that I keep wondering what my dad would have said. What I keep remembering and thinking about is the fact that the woman who raised my grandfather (his grandmother because his mother died young) was a slave until she was 30 only a little younger than me. I've also been thinking about my grandfather - who was born in 1881 and died almost 100 years later. He started his working life as a houseboy in a local plantation type home, lived through the turn of the century, WWI, WWII, and Vietnam not to mention Jim Crow, and life in a small racist VA town where THE original lynching tree still stands. My dad used to tell me this story about how they stopped by a gas station when he was a boy once and my granddad bought him a pack of 'nabs. My dad went to open and eat them in the store and the man behind the counter said 'hey nigger you can't eat that in here'. My granddad then told my dad to put them back on the counter and they turned a nd walked out because he didn't allow anyone to treat his family like that. My grandfather lived long enough to see his grandchildren go to integrated schools. I think about that - he was raised by a slave, started as a houseboy, and saw integration happen before he died in 1979. Thank God he and people like him never gave up their sense of hope, thank God that they passed a sense of purpose and a vision of what life could be like on to their children. America is most definitely in trouble now but I'm not ready to throw in the towel yet. Too much hard work on the part of my ancestors to give up now and too many years for my son and descendents to be left on this planet after I'm gone....but to quote Margaret Mead, "Never doubt the ability of a small group of concerned citizens to change the world, indeed it is the only group that ever has."

Oh and about the pig/lipstick thing...remember when the purpose of the TV News was to report it - not to make it up. Don't let the media hype fool you, most of us know this is bullshit the only people making a big deal about it are the media and they have 51 more days to make must watch TV before we all go back to watching reality shows, they've got to at least try to compete.

Muata Responds to MTP:

Reading about the research you have conducted inspired me. I am so thankful some of us are 'looking back' to gain more of an understanding about thy self.

I must say that in my heart of hearts that I am pretty much spent. I am so tired of putting hope in America to be let down. Collectively, we have not honored Earth. What we have done is used her up and thrown her away. Like trash. Now, as it appears things are looking bleak for so many we are prepared to get on a bending knee. I am guilty of this.

I just see what has been predicted or should I say what is written. History repeats itself, and you know as well as I do that history is evidence that great and powerful nations fall i.e. Rome, Greece, etc. America (in my mind) is approaching a collapse. The question to ask and answer: What can I do to save myself? It appears you are on that road: anytime someone takes the time to 'look back to understand' like you have done with the "genealogy trip" it is proof he/she is honoring the ancestors. Praise you, Sista!
