Greetings good citizen,

Um, since the truth matters little to the corporate owned media I always find it worrisome when the media ‘voluntarily’ prints what is commonly accepted to be ‘the truth’.

With Election Day just over a year away, a deep sense of economic anxiety and doubt about the future hangs over the nation, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll, with Americans’ distrust of government at its highest level ever.

The combustible climate helps explain the volatility of the presidential race and has provided an opening for protest movements like Occupy Wall Street, to highlight grievances about banks, income inequality and a sense that the poor and middle class have been disenfranchised.

Almost half of the public thinks the sentiment at the root of the Occupy movement generally reflects the views of most Americans.

Er, that last bit of only ‘half’ of Americans, er, ‘supporting’ the 99% movement is typical Corporate Owned Media ‘propaganda’. The ONLY thing/factor ‘keeping the peace’ right now is the media induced psychosis that we are still ‘evenly divided’.

If you AREN’T one of the richest 1% then guess whose ‘side’ you’re on?

You may ‘Want to be’ one of the 1% but the bad news is membership in that club is restricted to ‘by birth only’ these days. If you weren’t BORN a Gates or a Koch or a Buffett, fer-ged-a-boud-it!

But seriously good citizen, WHO are you going to vote for in the next election cycle?

I told you after the last election cycle the, er, ‘betrayal’ of Obama was ‘proof positive’ that the ballot box no longer works…and four years is far too long to wait for a chance to rectify a ‘mistake’.

Can we ‘survive’ another four years of the current spineless wonder?

Perhaps more damning is the fact that the incumbent is still running ‘unopposed’ by the alleged ‘good guys’…what does that tell you good citizen?

Not that the party of the, er, ‘working class’ had a deep bench to draw from.

Who, besides Elizabeth Warren, would you run for the Oval Office?

I suspect Liz is too smart to run, considering what she’d be inheriting

Attacked by 500 cops in a surprise assault. Tear gas, rubber bullets, shotguns, flash bang grenades. Many injured.

The Oakland occupation's website goes into some more detail, saying over 70 (some reports now say 85) were arrested:
This morning at 5am over 500 police in riot gear from cities all over central California brutally attacked the Occupy Oakland encampment at 14th & Broadway. The police attacked the peaceful protest with flash grenades, tear gas, and rubber bullets after moving in with armored vehicles. Apparently the media was not allowed in to document this repression, and the police established barricades as far apart as 11th and 17th. Over 70 people were arrested and the camp gear was destroyed and/or stolen by the riot police.

We see several conservatives lined up and chomping at the bit to take control of our burgeoning police state. I’d like to think that’s why the Democratic side of the field is empty, that our now spineless defenders at least don’t have the stomach for becoming our tormentors.

Well, most of ’em anyway.

So, what’s up with the media suddenly beating the drum on the ’disappointed public’ theme? 

Are they ‘prepping’ us for the next phase of the eminent collapse?

Looks that way to me but ‘doom and gloom’ is my stock in trade.

If I were all about the ‘happy’ these pages would be notoriously blank.

In fact I do write a ‘happy blog’ but don’t bother looking for it; it has zero entries.

The decidedly ‘unhappy’ real world tends to dominate the news cycle.

This, ironically, would not be so in a world managed by rational people.

Unlike the the media circus the Euro-Zone has become.

Stocks in the United States and Europe sank Tuesday as the markets got another jolt from the European Union — this time the abrupt cancellation of a meeting of finance ministers that was meant to precede a leaders’ summit meeting on Wednesday.

The sovereign debt problems in European nations that share the euro have loomed over the markets for more than a year, with investors able to price in some of the twists and turns in the efforts to resolve them. But on Tuesday, stocks that had opened lower dipped further on concern about what the cancellation of the meeting might portend.

Financial stocks in particular declined steeply, more than 3 percent. Europe’s leaders said they had made some progress over the weekend on measures aimed at addressing their financial and economic problems, but a big issue that analysts had expected to be tackled on Wednesday was how to expand the stability fund of 440 billion euros, or $611 billion, so that it would cover Spain and Italy, if necessary.

If you haven’t been paying attention due to being faced with larger problems in your personal domain, the ’debt’ this proposed ’stability fund’ is supposed to be protecting from default is 5 times larger than the fund…and there’s no place to get more without, er, ‘diluting’ what’s already there.

But that shouldn’t be a problem for the people in charge!

Reality be damned, we’ll make it work!

Large-scale twin studies have shown that these traits are highly heritable – identical twins, who share 100% of their genes, are much more similar to each other in this trait than fraternal twins, who share only 50% of their genes. In one study, over 80% of the variation in the callous-unemotional trait across the population was due to genetic differences. In contrast, the effect of a shared family environment was almost nil.

Psychopathy seems to be a lifelong trait, or combination of traits, which are heavily influenced by genes and hardly at all by social upbringing.

The two defining characteristics of psychopaths, blunted emotional response to negative stimuli, coupled with poor impulse control, can both be measured in psychological and neuroimaging experiments...They do not seem to process heavily loaded emotional words, like “rape”, for example, any differently from how they process neutral words, like “table”.

In a nutshell, good citizen, these people don’t know the difference between right and wrong. Sometimes its mild and sometimes its severe but left unchecked, it proves to always be disastrous!

This is why I propose to end ‘incarceration’ as a form of punishment and replace it with exile.

If we don’t ‘weed out’ this genetic trait we will keep returning to the point we are at today, with civilization itself on the verge of collapse.

Understand, the ONLY thing capable of ‘repairing’ our badly broken ‘global economy’ is a massive Jubilee, debt forgiveness on a scale not seen since biblical times!

Once forgiven the placing of another into debt must be criminalized. It is the first step towards sharing the planet’s bounty ‘equitably’.

And if that’s NOT a Desirable Goal, good citizen then I do not wish to remain a member of this species!

Remember the Golden Rule (which doesn’t go ‘those with the gold make the rules’.)

Look to your conscience and act accordingly.

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
