Dear Barack – Why don’t you address the fact that the U.S. went out on a manhunt for Osama bin Laden and killed him without a trial, or that the U.S. dropped more bombs on Laos and Cambodia than WWI and WWII combined and not one member of the government was convicted for war crimes. The U.S. convicts everyone else but itself. Barack, why don’t you address the fact that the Kennedy Assassination files aren’t being opened until 2017 or expose how many children of U.S. Senators have ever worn a uniform?
Dear Barack, how about you address the fact that a former member of United States National Security Agency can’t come back into the country because he’d be arrested for exposing the fact that the U.S. invades the privacy of its own citizens?
Dear Barack, please address the fact that you don’t work for the people, but for the conglomerates, the media magnates and the business moguls and you read from scripts whose ends favor their best interests, and not those of the masses.
“The President’s on,” they tell me. “State of the Union.”
“Not my president,” I say. “Let him try to tickle the ears of those who actually believe that any of it makes any difference.”
You’ll never have my eyes in front of a screen when you’re scheduled for an appearance. What “union?” Count me out. I didn’t vote for you.
Like you won from the free votes of the citizens anyway and not the $$ your future employers.
“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – for ever.”
