    and not a smart one.

    I figured out the difference - you're shocked, I'm resigned.  We both see bad coming down the pike.

    And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...

    •  I'm not shocked, nor resigned. I truly believe (9+ / 0-)

      that we (the people) should take on these scumbags trying to enslave us.  I will never accept the imposition of a police state and of tyranny.  I will fight against it with every lawful and constitutional (and peaceful) mean at my disposal, no matter how long it takes.

      •  It's too late. (7+ / 0-)

        While I admire your courage to take them on - I don't want you to get ventilated.  And that's what's going to happen at some point and time in the not so distant future.  Americans who dissent will be ventilated.  Once the second term is over the backlash and the Republic of Giliad will be all that's left of the nation I called home.

        I grew up a junior member of the military industrial complex.  It is entrenched in a way that it cannot be removed short of a reboot.  We're too lazy and scared to actually reboot.  We are a soft people.  We will be like John Locke on LOST - wondering right up until the end - why?

        The why is simple - because we have no value to the people who actually run the place - and they've been running it since before I was born.

      •  Incredibly informative diary... (5+ / 0-)

        And, you're right... it's time.

        I believe the first step is to get acquainted with the only way to successfully turn this country around.

        This story in The Telegraph talks about an 83 year old professor @ UMASS (Dartmouth) in Boston  named Gene Sharp who wrote a brilliantly instructive book on how to start a [nonviolent] revolution called, "From Dictatorship to Democracy."

        A great, inspirational read.

        Thanks for the diary.
