christmas has been turned into a corporate wet dream, new years a sanctioned night of drunken foolishness and danger.... even independence day has turned into a corporatized falsely patriotic debacle...
its very common for people to say "merry christmas" and "happy new year" to strangers on those holdidays, but i found on this MLK day when i said "Happy Martin Luther King Day" to some strangers, they laughed or nervously chuckled, saying nothing! What's so funny about it? Are you nervous that showing support for a politically progressive figure would all of a sudden make you an activist, make you radical? There was also the debates on CNN between Edwards, Clinton on Obama, praising Martin Luther King, but i heard nothing about Iraq/Afghanistan, which King certainly would have been talking about! Instead they go on about mortgage rates... while we have an illegitimate, treasonous, war criminal administration sitting pretty, with no accountability in sight... A couple of guys in the locker room watching this
"debate" said to each other:
"So, what do you think about this?"
"Are you kidding?"
"Oh, yeah of course Im kidding."
Apparently holding any opinion at all on politics nowadays is ridiculous! One of the guys also said something like: "This politics is beyond repair.." How convenient for your apathy! How conveinient for the status-quo! How did people become so disempowered?
We need to forget this corporate media circus and focus on the fundamentals right now, the past 2 rigged presidential elections, 9/11 Truth, The Federal Reserve, and IMPEACHMENT FOR GOD'S SAKE!
How can so many people be so easily duped and exploited?
