We are far beyond insanity now. When you have cops openly blaming protesters for their own deaths there is no end to the rabbit hole we have fallen down. These protests are happening because you god damned fuckers are openly murdering black people on a daily basis now. And then you praise the heavily armed militias for their helping you to basically attack the protesters. Fuck. And yet you still have the gall to still stand behind mottos that proclaim you protect and serve the citizens. Fuck you assholes. You are nothing but criminal murderous thugs now. You pretty much always have been, as the history of the police in the USA was all about chasing down slaves back in the day. Nothing has changed. Your hatred is now on full display, no more masks needed. You should all be wearing white sheets instead of blue uniforms. There is no doubt now that the police must be defunded for all lives and especially those of color. I no longer can wrap my head around just how fucking insane folks like these are who dare to blame citizens engaging in their constitutional right to protest against your outright evil actions against the citizenry you still pretend to protect and serve. You are pure evil. If you had any honor at all you would step down and publicly commit seppuku for your crimes against humanity. Resignation is too good for you fucking evil monsters.

US police departments held all the cards when Congress and the Dubya regime failed to renew the assault weapons ban. Had police departments threatened to strike at the time, Congress would have renewed the ban before the sun set that day. (Yes, I know cops and firemen union contracts prohibit strikes, but that strike would have been ignored because the cops were better armed than vigilantes back then).

After sunsetting the ban, US vigilantes’ personal arsenals grew exponentially as did arms industry revenue, enabling funding fascist sheriff campaigns that have resulted in many county sheriffs being nothing more than vigilantes with badges.

Many police departments at all levels are working on behalf of Trump, Moscow Mitch and the organized crime syndicate disguised as the GOP, they are not working for we the people who pay their salaries and pay for their military grade arsenals.

Someone close to me suggested that the fascist-corporate take-over has already been in place, and all there is now is empty political theater.

What predictably got little news coverage is the fact that, during the impeachment inquiry, the Fraternal Order of Police sent a letter to Congress - complaining about the inquiry.

“Protect and serve”: they protect property and serve the oligarchy which rules AmeriKKKa.

A society which allows citizens to easily and legally obtain military assault weapons is beyond insane. It is suicidal.

TToB, granted, this damned Disguised Global Crony Capitalist Empire of lies does seem to be winning for now over this “smoother-lying” neoliberal-con ‘D’ Vichy Party of the exact same effin Empire.

So, Empire has the upper hand because of the deceit of the “rougher-talking” neocon ‘R’ Vichy Party of this dual-party Vichy-facade of faux-democracy.

But as Bill Murray might say, “At least we got that going for us”.

Actually, the whole damned problem could be very easily and peacefully solved if ‘we the American people’ just fired a; loud, public, sustained, ‘in-the-streets’, but totally non-violent “SHOUT (not shot) heard round the world” to ignite a Second American people’s peaceful and complete “Political/economic & socialist Revolution Against Empire” to lead the world toward socialist and racial democracy as our first one did in 1776 — but without the Muskets.

And the simplest way to shout-out a chant against EMPIRE and for democracy is this:

“Show me what democracy looks like”
“This ain’t what democracy looks like”
“This is what an EMPIRE looks like”

Just like with climate breakdown, societal breakdown is proving to be much more exponential than us humans realize.

Let’s see what happens. There is the chance something revolutionary can come from this mess and change our suicidal course. It is doubtful but possible.

Good, I was being sarcastic anyway. Voting won’t get us out of this hell.
