Know your true enemy. He's not over there, that's a ploy to keep you distracted.
He is right here under your nose.
All of us are now ruled by the large corporations. They are scattered like little kingdoms, with their corporate flags and polished granite buildings (castles).
Nothing so far has changed in the past 1000 years - only the names and titles (again to keep you distracted).
We need to change who is running our lives and that can only begin once everyone wakes up and figures out who the real enemy is.
Not the little puppet on a string (Obama/another distraction/scapegoat).
Who then is the real enemy?
They are the men/women pulling the strings, making the puppet dance and talk, the people who own and run the corporations that have bought our government and our freedom.
If you cut out the cancer, you just don't take a little out, you get down to the deep root.
That is what we, the common person must do, get to the root cause (greed in the name of profit).
BP is just the latest example of the total disregard for all life the large corporations have.
For the destruction of our entire Gulf region, BP will get a small fine and slap on the wrists.
Why? They are a large corporation, and corporations run the show, make and break the laws - they are above the law.
We need to demand a stop to this insanity or we as a species may go the way of the dinosaurs.

LLC or private corporations where the ownership is 100% declared may be OK, but for the most part, corporations should be 100% ownership transparent and heavily taxed to balance their advantages.
