A mildly amusing side light on the ongoing Meta wars.
Lots of people are tossing around the word. Apparently with no regard for what it actually means.
This just in, Governor Nathan Deal, his business partner and Daughter are on the pad for the "Healthcare" industry.
In this time of war and rumors of war, perhaps we should give thought to oldest and longest war of all.
This September will mark the 40th anniversary of the US Government backed military Coup against the Democratically elected Government of Chilean President Salvador Allende. Allende was a Marxist who advocated a nonviolent, electoral path to socialism in keeping with Chile's long tradition of Democratic governance.
On September 11th 1973, the Chilean Right Wing and military led byGeneral Augusto Pinochet, backed by the US, drowned Allende's experiment in the blood of the Chilean people.
Among the many victims was Victor Jara, a Chilean teacher, theatre director, poet, singer-songwriter and political activist. He was a distinguished theatre director, devoted to the development of Chilean theatre. He also played an important role in establishing the Nueva Canción Chilena (New Chilean Song) movement.
On September 12th he was arrested by the military an imprisoned with thousands of others at Chile Stadium, now renamed the Estadio Víctor Jara. There he was tortured, beaten and his hands crushed. Despite this, he defiantly sang the revolutionary hymn "Venceremos": We Will Win, before being machine gunned.
I wrote this for him and for us.
My years infiltrating, researching and organizing against Right Wing hate groups.
Feeling hopeless? Looking for someone to blame?
I was once labeled as a vigilante.
Agree or disagree?
I'm a proud, apoplectic, left wing, radical!
They're out to get us!
Find your Truth!
