If you measure a Nation by how great her enemies are, our Nation of Pirates, Ranchers and Wall Street Con Artists isn’t much of a Nation. Our enemies include the poor, the homeless, orphans, the elderly, refugees, cattle, the Native American Arab and little girls. How the Faux News propaganda machine is able to convince the cattle in our stockyard called a Nation that this group is indeed our enemy is beyond me. Seems to me that our Nations Great Leaders have become unhappy with the World’s Reservation system and are busy rounding up the Geronimo’s, Sitting Bull’s, Chief Joseph’s and Tecumseh’s of the world, hoping to insert today’s version of a Crow as their new chiefs. We have truly entered into the 21st Century 100-year Indian War, the only difference is what and who makes up an Indian. Our Pirates and Wall Street Con Artists still find it all too easy to find a man on the reservation all too willing to sell another man’s horse. Buying another man’s property from someone who doesn’t hold actual Title and calling it yours is just how our Christian Fundamentalist Faith does things. Non-English speaking people of the world refer to this as stealing, while the English Ranchers of the World view this as ingenuity and conning.
Just like Geronimo, today’s Reservation Leaders will be given yesterday’s weapons and just enough ammunition to fight back, but nothing close to what is required to actually win. Just like Geronimo we will rape enough of his women, slaughter enough of his children and bomb enough of his Tee-Pees so he will have no choice but to fight back. The Pirates, Ranchers and Wall Street Con Artists will allow today’s Geronimo to run wild, allowing him to slaughter a few of our cattle and yet pose no threat to the Pirates, Ranchers and Wall Street Con Artists themselves. The Cattle in our Stockyard of a Nation will become spooked and will follow the dumbest cow in the yard that the Ranchers tie the loudest cowbell on. Even though this cow will clearly be castrated, de-horned and vaccinated against original thought the cows in the pen will follow the cow with the bell to the ranchers feedings, watering’s and eventual walk up the ramp to their slaughter. The cow with the bell will remind the cattle in the yard of a time when the feedings were more frequent, the salt licks were more plentiful and the short life in the yard was good. Life was great in the yard until these refugee cattle were allowed in, or maybe it will be the Black Cows or the Brown Cows the Cow with the Bell will blame. Blame will need to be made, because even cattle get tired of the smell of shit and the small confines of the pen. No blame will be cast on the actual Ranchers of the stockyard, the cow with the bell has been vaccinated against having original thought and that maybe life on the other side of the fence is preferable to the eventual walk up the ramp.
Still trying to live my life on the other side of the fence. Peace.
