Dear American People and People of the World,

Corporate Death And Destruction - with full Government support!

Where are the dissenting voices of the Public?

Ya see? That's what I DO NOT UNDERSTAND !!!

What the bloody hell is wrong with people when they see plain as day right in front of their faces who is fucking them over - copoRATS - WallStreet - Fossil Fuel - and a Puppet Government.

BUT THEY LOOK AT EACH OTHER FUNNY INSTEAD OF GOING AFTER THE FUCKING CRIMINALS.

RAISE A DISSENTING VOICE ???

Seems like people can not speak out - not that they are forbidden or anything - NOT YET

Because they have no guts?

Or they think someone else should and will save them?

Or because it is not their problem? ( REALLY ? )

People - WAKE UP !

Take a good look around you and see what is happening.

The rampant crime that caused the economic meltdown and the criminals not only not charged but are rewarded and supported by the Government of the USA.

Look at fossil fuel and pollution. The Toxic Ash Dumps, the fracking for Liquid Natural Gas and for Oil, the Mountain top removal to access coal. Look at the poisoning and the destruction of our environment that is being done with full support of the government of the USA.

Look at the outsourcing of work to foreign sweatshops - the resulting loss of American Employment and no new jobs or Industries being created to make up for the loss. With Full Government of the USA support.

WAKE UP DAMN IT !!!

UNITE IN COMMON CAUSE AND PUT AN END TO THIS INSANITY BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.

People do not go quietly into the dark.

I think part of it is technology. Its the speed of democracy. Starting in the 60's politicians started using TV with its instant messaging to affect public opinion. One newcast can set the agenda of a country in seconds. These day's bankers make thousands of trades per minute. The elite have utilized and perfected technology to speed up the rate of decision-making and political action leaving the common person in the dust. But as protest groups and regular people catch the technology curve to speed up the rate of community interaction such as through the internet, i.e the speed of democracy increases, then I think more public participation will occur...like before when all messages were sent by horse.

The proverbial speed of business.

Fast communications can be a plus/blessing and they can be a negative/curse.

It is all in how the ability is used or misused.

It is surely a sad state of affairs.

Yet, "as I always state" those who know, know and will always have the courage to make positive moves against the ills of the world.

I have come to see that everyone cannot be a leader, (particularly those who hold those positions now) and followers are the norm since it is the path of least resistance.

Therefore, Leaders.....help the people, but I am sure not all of them will want to understand...it is the failings of human nature. .

It is also a failing of society not to teach how to think for ones self. It is the failing of society to allow propaganda instead of complete factual information. It is the failing of all who can think not to help others open their eyes. It is the failing of those who can think not to spread the awareness and educate those around them.

This is a great success of OWS all Occupy movements all protests - raise awareness educate reach out. And yet this is also an area that needs much more attention and expansion. Currently too many are not acting outside of a street protest - protests which are not being aired by the media - and so are reaching a very limited audience.

I am sorry to be repetitive, but EVERYTHING
from wars, to banks, to pollution, to taxes, to education has one thing at its core -
the influence of crapitalist money buying our government - EVERYTHING

Too many people fell asleep on the couch after their 32oz soda and supersize fastfood while watching sports or the latest holloywood movie.

Bread & circuses man. (the Romans said it 1st and best)

I'm with you. Gotta wake everyone up from their saturated fat induced stupor.

We might agree on something.

Stranger things have happened.

ASAP - or we are all well and truly fucked - I am devastated at the thought of the future the (future generations ) survivors will be forced to live in before they too die.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

It is an urgent emergency. Agreed.

No more snooze button. It's time to get up and smell the coffee.

[+] -7 points by DKAtoday (26439) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

We need to see a massive communications effort.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

I will forward and agitate for the awakening. I always prefer non vulgar but the message is that important.

[+] -7 points by DKAtoday (26439) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

I am pretty much done with being polite about what is happening to our country - our world.

It seems as though - well they are talking so nice and polite - it must not be all that bad then or there would be some real passion.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Your right. I would suggest though that any letter to the Pres has a better chance of gettin to him without the obscenity.

You could use the spcl chars F#@K that might be a good compromise.

Peace

Keep-on Keeping-on.

It's sad, perhaps, but a majority simply don't see what you see.

[+] -6 points by DKAtoday (26439) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

We have got to get those eyes open.

[-] 1 points by MsStacy (1035) 2 years ago

I often think their eyes are open, people just take the short term benefit and ignore the problems that creates. It's the same thought process that allows someone to smoke or drink himself to death over a few decades. They ignore the danger for the short term gratification.

It "is" a very sick society.

What I sent to the President:

FYI - this is not addressed to you but to the American People. But I thought if this letter or any of my letters have been forwarded to you as they should have been ( which I doubt that they have ) then you should also have more food for thought and another wake-up call.
