it's hard to expatriate now, people see us as some kind of vermin, a disease. maybe it's just as well that the illusory concept of the america we thought we lived in dies here, right here and now, and isn't perpetuated into the infinitum with bullshit propaganda. we've sunken to a level that is so scummy and low, that it's a wonder you can get on a plane with a U.S. passport and actually go anywhere. We really have de-evolved, but what is probably more important to understand is that the self-righteous indignation about a fictional america that allegedly has stood for essentially good things, was such bullshit and lies, that when your whole nation is founded on mythological crap that isn't true, ultimately the facade wears thin and exposes the real nature of the people.

that happened finally. we really are monsters. those of us who object are too few and far between to have made a significant difference in our fellow citizens. we were the 'albinos' in the pool. the majority were the murderers and the torturers, and the dominionist christian bastards who can talk about christ out of one corner of their mouth, and do this shit from the other corner.

the illusion is over. we're really quite evil.

and it's sad. we could have been different.

I can be much more of a patriot as an ex-patriate. Americans have really sunk too low on this one. I can't even stand my own countrymen. And it is embarassing these days to be identified as an american abroad.

I just don't know what is worse: Torture? Americans defending it?

we've really got a big problem on our hands when fully 50 percent of the fuckers who stand next to me in any Starbucks or any grocery store checkout line can condone the torture and murder of people who've not been tried or sentenced for any criminality of any kind, and actually, were tortured to derive self incriminating evidence under torture, by which to convict them in these fucking tribunal jokes that the military set up to kangaroo court these poor fuckers into concocted death sentences.

the day is rapidly approaching when either americans either grow up, or their nation 'dies' because you cannot have a nation which condones torture, and freedom, and the moral high ground.

the absurdity of the justifications for the torture just astounds me. it's hard to believe I live amongst you fuckers who can condone this banality and amoral bullshit. It's disgusting.

It would have been difficult at that time to demonize and separate out the enemy. They were basically the same religion and ethnicity. By promoting fundamentalist Christian religion in the military, we have innoculated people from any identification with the populations in the Middle East, so that soldiers can do what is "necessary". Like, torture. Then, they put on entertainment glorifying and promoting things like torture in shows like "24". The MSM is doing demonization in preparation for a big war against Iran by painting Obama as returning to his "Muslim roots" (as ABC puts it) by attempting a dialogue with countries in the Middle East and speaking out against inflamatory Israeli settlements. First you cause an economic crash, then you start a big war to direct attention elsewhere that profits a few at the top and consolidates and solidifies power. It is a repeating game. The Reagan era allowed mergers and acquisition of mass media to the point where it is a very effective propaganda machine and there is barely a squeek from the public about things like torture. They just keep tuning into their daily dose of propaganda.EQ
