It doesn’t take much anymore to rekindle the lingering embers from uncertainty and ignite raging flames of fear and blind vengeance in the hearts and minds of innocent Americans, once again; First, the screams of a young woman from a mountain’s edge crying for help…then a series of second-hand threats and if that isn’t quite enough throw in a couple of alleged be-headings to prime the pump. And, thanks to an ever accommodating media who anxiously jump at the opportunity to revive good ol’ 9/11 fears spooking us real good just before another anniversary of the tragic 2001 September event, Coincidence, or?
Is this our government’s reminder or that of a new enemy for us not to forget 9/11 fears? It’s as if they are secretly admitting; “…there are still many freedoms we need to take away from you and we need ya’all to get really afraid again, so you won’t think twice when you learn that you have to chip in more of your ‘take-for-granted’ privileges in order to remain safe…”, albeit from the fear of yet ‘another’ foreign hybrid terrorist group. They hope you have forgotten what they inadvertently revealed to us before; “…you never want to waste a crisis”,…(especially if it is a manufactured one)!
Following each new sound bite a poll is taken to check the latest news’ effectiveness, as if testing the results of the announcement’s ineffectiveness. Push into the minds of the conditioned listeners new, but second-hand information and wah-lah the polls change and the majority of those tested now want to kill the bastards before they get us. A predictable outcome or a surprise? Or is this another propaganda spree or another hollow threat to justify boots on the ground (which we no longer have) or a second attempt to right an unnecessary war into a just one?
Good grief! Has our country’s truth, its integrity and confidence in ourselves actually been polluted to such an extent by false messengers and double speak that all we have left are these despicable methods to secure our temporary support behind the elites’ ever-changing agendas. Where will our image be once we fail again, with this latest excuse? Will there still be enough truth left to proudly call ourselves Americans or will we just continue to implode behind our ever failing institutions? Are we being hijacked again? Or are we just waking up? Do WE even have a back-up plan? Do any of us really care? Besides, what can we do about it as we dangle from the strings of our puppeteers?
When the word ‘God’ was first used in the phrase which now appears on the value we assign our labor; ‘In God We Trust’ the word ‘God’ meant ‘Truth’ and the government feared us… ‘We The People’! …Today the word God means one of a million or more beliefs denoting some dogma of religiosity. TODAY ‘We the People’ are afraid of our government and what they will do or otherwise convince us they must do to/for us next, even if …it is supposed to be for our own good (ACA) and safety (TSA).
Should we stay tuned for 9/11 2.0 and more bombing or after Boston and Benghazi is it 4.0?
