It's almost too much to bear...
These sickening tax giveaways when cities like Flint force kids to drink lead-laced "drinking" water.
These sickening tax giveaways creating a pretext to close schools and Head Start centers.
These sickening giveaways with money ALWAYS earmarked for more war, and more weapons, and more fossil fuel-based ecocide.
Inside my overworked brain, I get flashes of the Syrian and Yemeni refugees being rebuked from seeking safety and it reminds me of the Jews begging entrance into other nations when Hitler began his campaign of extermination. Doors shut on them, too.
I get flashes of the Brazilian mothers holding malformed infants in their arms. And while this sickening travesty is blamed on mosquitoes, it's more likely the dark fruit of lab assistants playing god in attempts to redirect nature. Gen tech firms put sterile mosquitos into circulation and used chemicals to theoretically make water incompatible with mosquito breeding.
Nature always finds a way; but if her resources are tainted, the poisons go to work distorting natural systems and life forms.
I get flashes of the marine life going silent across the Pacific, and the deformed marine life close to the toxic (albeit now plugged) Maconda well in the Gulf of Mexico.
More flashes of all the kids maimed for life with Autism and other neurological impairments many of which are the direct product of TAINTED vaccine overloads.
Our world is being run by murderers, sociopaths, thieves, and the most twisted of souls.
There must be binding UNIVERSAL laws to thwart the actions of these maniacal forces.
A friend of mine once asked me NOT to talk about these things. She's the center of a big family and uses her love and enthusiasm to buoy up everyone else. She also inquired, "How do you LIVE with what you know."
That comment haunts me.
Kudos, indeed, to Mr. Buchheit for exposing the dark heart of corporate malfeasance. "Dark Money" by Jane Mayer explains the logistics of how it came to be that a handful of billionaires gamed the system, gained possession of the National Dialog, and then used lobbyists to fulfill the rest of their diabolical agenda.
Today's article by Mary Bottari adds yet another layer in how the U.S. Chambers of Commerce reinforce the Old Deal--as promulgated by the likes of the Koch Brothers and their partners in corporate crimes against humanity. (By "Old Deal" I'm speaking to the AGES of aristocratic rule over the lowly multitudes.)
