The biggest abusers of the oversight process, AND the least accountable. We shouldn’t wonder why terms like fascist, and lawless are applied to them.

Why should the Strump’s EPA give a shit about adding a new rule. The EPA has been the Corporate Protection Agency for years.

We are at the end stage of this experiment in democracy of, by, and for the people. The brick wall is visible and the what we know can no longer be denied or the apple put back on the tree. Not sure where to go from here so I think some of Zappa’s nuggets need to be applied ~

“The essence of Christianity is told to us in the Garden of Eden history. The fruit that was forbidden was on the Tree of Knowledge. The subtext is, All the suffering you have is because you wanted to find out what was going on. You could be in the Garden of Eden if you had just kept your fucking mouth shut and hadn’t asked any questions.”
Frank Zappa , interview, Playboy, May 2, 1993

The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater – Frank Zappa circa 1977

I forget where, but once I found a similar sentiment: “Fascists prefer to rule by fraud when possible, but will rule by force when the fraud is exposed.”

Let me add on to that:

Secrecy and hiding information blinds democracy.

Corporate State Democrats should dig this…at least secretly.

True…and that trend certainly has been accelerated with the fascist pig’s Administration.

Let’s hope that the next “new rule” isn’t marshal law.
