No, I’m not talking about abortion (by how I worded this title). That was bad enough—sick enough!
We’ve moved to the next level, risen to the next disgrace, ascended to a far worse sickness—justifying, thinking, saying this is okay. And this is from the same people who cry “abortion is murder!”
Now we kill people who think deeply, who talk, who run and play—who, unlike the unborn, are accountable as to where they’ll spend eternity.
Even one homicide, one remote-controlled, joystick killing in the name of ‘self-defense,’ is too many—and we watch our President’s smugness as he leaves office. What a disgrace—laughing—having led US into impending doom.
What have we become—so high on our horse? Instead of reaching out to our ‘enemies,’ admitting the many ways we have been wrong, how we’ve bullied and spread filth around the world, we just kill them. We drive them away—into hating US.
And “America the Dysfunctional,” the big bully on the block, now sanctions and enables others to do likewise—leading by example.
America is sick, her heart has grown cold, having succumbed to the delusion The Moody Blues proclaimed in 1967:
Cold hearted orb
That rules the night
Removes the colours
From our sight
Red is gray and
But we decide
Which is right
Which is an Illusion
Our end is near, because Dennis’ words go unheard, speaking to an empty House, while America amuses herself to death.
Washington, Jan 15 –
Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today made the following statement about the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Gaza on the House Floor:
“The attack on the United Nations headquarters in Gaza is further proof that a post-legal era in world affairs has taken shape; where law and moral principles are irrelevant, where might makes right, where retribution and vengeance, even against innocent children, fails to shake us from moral lethargy or political paralysis.
“Collective punishment, disproportionate use of force, using U.S. planes, helicopters and munitions to attack a wounded, starved and thirsty civilian population of mostly children trapped in a box called Gaza has become acceptable, perhaps because we have already accepted the deaths of over one million innocent civilians in Iraq in a war based on lies.
“There is a way out. We must ask those who were given our armaments for defense to stop the aggression, end the blockade, end the occupation, and reconnect with the high sentiments that rallied their own suffering, wounded people to nationhood generations ago. When we recognize the humanitarian disaster in Gaza, when we come to grips with the reality of suffering on both sides, we may yet find a way to save ourselves.
