I have become sick of playing with kid-gloves on. Time is way to short. As our congressional leaders and White House officials continue their efforts to recreate this country into a perminent oligarchy, and hand over every last tax dollar you and your grand children will pay to their affiliated corporate sponsors, it occures to me that we have to stop pandering to the least common denominators in this country.
You cannot make everyone “get it”. All you can do is put the information out there and hope someone will be interested enough to begin looking on their own. If they do not, if you have not by now, then you are either a coward or an idiot; and either way, the real progressive movement has to pass you by.
Right now, even the Gatekeepers of gatekeepers, the Daily Kos, has changed their policy and allows “Let It Happen on Purpose” discussions, because the evidence of that has become all to “mainstream” for even them to ignore.
Below is something I wrote on ADS. It is in response to an article written by David Swanson, a very committed and active man in the impeachment movement. I reccomend reading his post, then my response.

…and tell me what you see.
Everything they have wanted to do to this country, they have been able to do; and always, at the heart of their demands for “more power to fight “the terrorists”… is 9/11.
We need to start calling things like we see them; stop worrying about peoples’ feelings.
If you think that they had this huge plan to shred the constitution, hand over all this money to their buddies in the MIC, and turn the economy of this once great country into a social welfare program for the international bankers and big business, and you think 9/11 just “happened” so they took advantage of it… then you’re a fucking idiot.
If you look at the collapse of building 7 and think it’s a structural failure, and that somehow gravity brought it down (through the path of greatest resistance), and it started “collapsing” at the base then “fell” into a neat pile in it’s own footprint without damaging the buildings beside it… then you are a fucking idiot.
EVERYTHING is about 9/11. Hell, staying in Iraq, according to the good General, is about preventing “the next 9/11”.
The “war on terror” (the endless war economy) is about 9/11.
You should explain, David, just HOW they got rid of the president of Iran in 1953…
…the CIA staged false terrorists attacks thoughout Iran and blamed the president.
Kissenger was Bush’s FIRST choice to head the 9/11 commission.
If you can’t put those pieces together, you’re a fucking idiot.
How do you think the 4 planes were never intercepted? And as the investigation unfolded, the story changed not once, not twice, but three times?
All the time, there is the Minnetta story, in congress, about that young man reporting to the vice president “It’s 50 miles out…Its 40 miles out…”
The key is 9/11. Looking at “why they attacked us” without looking at WHO attacked us, is stupid.
Who hates your freedoms? Well let’s see… who wrote the Patriot Act…who wrote the Military Commissions Act… who is pushing for the revamped FISA bill with telecom immunity… who created “free speech zones”… who is breaking up labor unions… who rewrote the bankruptcy laws keeping you enslaved to the banking interests, forever… who ignores any congressional oversight and refers to the constitution as a “goddamn piece of paper”…
and WHO wants to hand over COMPLETE control of our entire economy…to the Federal Reserve Bank System?
And who helped them steal the White House in the first place?
19 “terrorists” with box-cutters?
If you can’t put the pieces together… you are a goddamn idiot.
If you are affraid to put the pieces together and commit it to writing for fear of being called a “whacko”… Then you are NOT an idiot…
you are a fucking coward.
