Removing The Boot

It has been quite some time since I have turned on a TV to watch something besides a video from www.conspiracycentral.com... but after only 20 mins I had to turn off the repulsive propaganda.

All I wanted was to hear how the media was playing the wire tapping testimonies today and got more than I bargained for...

Out of instinct I turned on Fox News because after the Iraq war began that was all I ever watched... I agreed with their reporting and secretly enjoyed the conservative slant, but now years have past and I can see the whole picture... reading between the lines of every talking head, pundit, and pseudo-politico mouthpieces... Underneath the layers of make-up and behind the bleached teeth and phony smiles, I see the message and the messengers.

Between the ads for Lunesta and Prilosec, is a thick curtain of deception covering the real meaning of their reports. If it wasn't for the Lunesta, I wouldn't be able to sleep at night, because after watching only twenty min of Fox and MSNBC I have developed a need for Prilosec to keep the stomach acids at bay, and a strong case of insomnia... I must have just missed the ad for Soma...

As I strain the news through a charcoal lined coffee filter in my mind I see the lies and violations coming into view... and presented with a smile.

...Dear Sir, we are taking your home because Katrina has severely damaged it, and in the interest of time, efficiency and profit we are going to bypass your right to own property, thanks to Kelo v. City of New London, and the fine Supreme Court Justices that decide the case....

...Mr. Chairman... We don't need to bother with the formalities of Swearing on the Bible before we discuss the Wire tapping of Americans... I certainly wouldn't want to purge myself, besides I'm the Attorney General... didn't we have an agreement Mr. Specter?...

The pundits on both sides making my stomach churn like I drank spoiled milk while discussing the authority to pick and choose what laws to follow... hmmm, that one worked in the 70's but... today we are fighting a new war... a 21st century war... a war wherein we politely disregard the rights granted to you by our creator...

oooo, I can feel the burn in the back of my throat, as I hold down the bile and bite my tongue.

Flashback... to a video clip from the documentary, "The Yes Men"... Mr. Bush remarking "There ought to be limits to freedom..." God where the hell was I when he said that? No doubt I was still polishing one of two patent leather boots as it slowly applied pressure to the back of my head, with my teeth firmly planted on a curb... and the other one just tapped the beat of the Fox News jingle.

Then what happened? When did the sun shine down and the boot remove it's pressure? When did everything become clear again... I knew these things so long ago, but chose to fall into lock step with the sheep, as they were lined up to be shaved and slaughtered... when did the scales fall from my eyes and the veil of deceit lift from my line of sight? Over the course of several months it took for the transformation to take place... the layers and layers of silt and grime were slowly being washed away with every second of Truth pushing through the dirt. While the voices of Americans, like Jones, Avery, Paul, and McKinney reached my ears... It all became so clear again... the New Order or the Ages had never stopped marching, it was just the steady drum of their goose stepping that had put me to sleep...

My silent weapon makes only a constant hum, as millions of bits are transferred to the new ears and new eyes of a people who are seeking for a light in this darkness... bringing ever closer one more person from the deep slumber to the reality that we all need to take our teeth off the curb and throw that oppressive boot from the back of our head to the ground... I will no longer hold the shoe polish, I will wield the Sword of Truth and cut the throat of my slave master, and I'm not waiting for the next commercial break to do it.

GET OFF YOUR ASS AND TAKE A STAND AGAINST TYRANNY!
