"The Ultimate in Vanity - Exploiting Their Supremacy
I Can't Believe the Things You Say
I Can't Believe... I Can't Believe the Price We Pay
Nothing Can Save Us
Justice Is Lost, Justice Is Raped, Justice Is Gone
Pulling Your Strings Justice Is Done
Seeking No Truth; Winning Is All
Find it So Grim, So True, So Real"
"Freedom of choice is made for you, my friend.
Freedom of speech is words that they will bend.
......Freedom no longer frees you"
These words, from two different songs, were written almost thirty years ago. As each new day passes the depressing irony that they still ring true
brings ever more anger into my heart. In my particular line of work, I am legally limited as to what actions of protest I may take and in what manner
I do so. The rest of you are not, so long as those actions are peaceful.
Too many people today have become accustomed to the idea of "someone else will surely take care of this travesty". The truth is, there are no more
heroes. They have gone because we refused to help them. A hero is just an ideal, and truly one person can only do so much. The heroes have gone,
because no longer do men rally behind them. We expected them to do everything for us....I know I am ranting, and most likely to a crowd who are
content to grumble online and not take action; but anger, frustration, and despair sit sour in the stomach.
It would seem that our fellow man will only be ready to take action, once the knife is at his own throat. When every single thing that was his, is
lost. I fear that only when our country has hit absolute rock bottom will the people be ready to rise en mass....
