WHITHER NOW UNITED FATES OF AMERICA?
To paraphrase something Ollie used to say to Stan, “That’s another fine mess you’ve gotten us into!”
The U.S. pandemic response has been a true SNAFU for the collective mass of humanity that is the USA, ‘Situation Normal, All Fucked Up”.
That’s if anyone feels there has been a response at all... it is more like an ongoing, uncoordinated ball of utter confusion, most of the time with a sociopath adding daily to that casebook study in unmitigated chaos.
The world was looking on of course, marveling at just how fucked up North America truly is. The diseases infecting the USA go far deeper than the current malaise. It’s not only health care that is as dysfunctional, arbitrary and as expensive as it gets. The political system is even more insane. If you can call it a political system. It is more of a corporate team building exercise, money laundering scam and puppet show combined.
When will you engineer the next financial crash? Has the greed-o-meter not quite reached maximum yet? Then Uncle Joe Biden will have to bail out all your banks again, foreclose your homes and arrange some quantitative easing for your high fliers while watching those of you in the bottom two thirds get screwed... again.
What about your media, that strange amalgam of fantasy constantly leaking into the world of what passes for your news over there. Those talking heads acting as automatons for whatever murderous foreign policy narrative the U.S. state now demands, conveniently forgetting the hundreds of thousands it helped die already as cheerleaders.
Next, the Military Industrial Complex. Dwight Eisenhower must be spinning like a brain-busted cruise missile in his grave about now. The $billions that get plowed into that utterly useless industry is totally mind-boggling. And enough is never quite enough, is it? Why not just give them the entire U.S. budget? Why not double that or triple it. You are only a couple of trillion in debt. Who cares?
Add in the Opioid crisis your pharmaceutical industry has bequeathed you, ably assisted by your local doc in a cyclical money-making machine where (almost) everyone profits including the morticians. You take so many pills you surely rattle like dice in a cup America!
That leads me on to your compulsive gambling habit... no, not just the manic hordes in Los Vegas. Your gambling with the lives of the rest of us out here beyond your borders. You act as though you own us and have the right to do whatever you want with us. I don’t recall you being given the mandate to be the world’s executioner. I must have missed that edition of 'The Situation Room’.
Biden and Blinken are clearly obsessed with the goal of aligning every U.S. ally out there is a spearhead to create a new forever war, this time not just with terrorists but with entire nations, namely Russia and China and a gaggle of others your elites want weakened enough to get taken over by some proxy, poodle, puppet or Guaido-like quisling. What lovely leaders you always have. Not content with one thug by the name of Trump with his cohort of superthugs you have elected a geriatric thug and a man channeling the still breathing double evil spirit of a Cheney-Bolton combo.
How come a nation with such an obsession for seeing analysts can be so perpetually insane?
It is perplexing to say the least.
But soon to be resolved in the world’s favor if I’m not mistaken.
Your time as top dog, top cop, world dictator and exploiter, or whatever you wish to call your current tattered status... is almost over. A rather more benign power is coming to the fore, a power that already holds much of your debt and many of your most profitable industries. And despite your elites engineering the demise of your Mom and Pop shops, handily transferred to their friends in the corporate mono-world to come... China will also rise above whatever desperation campaigns now being mounted.
Your systems are infected. Your people are rising against you. No matter how many cop killers you send out there, or how many ladles of poisonous food you serve, or foreigners of color you murder... your time is ending. Your era of malignant exploitation in the name of phony freedoms and democracy is ending.
Your casino capitalism is busted. Your flag tattered. Your eagle about plucked and cooked.
