Happened Then, Happens Now?

During the 1970’s

The Church Committee uncovered CIA operations to secretly influence the minds of Americans:

The CIA is now using several hundred American academics (administrators, faculty members, graduate students engaged in teaching) who, in addition to providing leads and, on occasion, making introductions for intelligence purposes, write books and other material to be used for propaganda purposes abroad. . . . These academics are located in over 100 American colleges, universities and related institutions. At the majority of institutions, no one other than the individual concerned is aware of the CIA link. At the others, at least one university official is aware of the operational use of academics on his campus.. .. The CIA considers these operational relationships within the U.S. academic community as perhaps its most sensitive domestic area and has strict controls governing these operations…

We Will Overcome . . . right?

This is what the government has been up to.

^ Where’s our money?

Oh yeah, It didn’t go to the tax payers. It went to the banks and billion dollar corporations. But people are starving and homeless because of our economy. Wouldn’t giving the money back to the taxpayers stimulate the economy? Of course it would, but the government doesn’t care about the poor. They’d rather give our had earned money to rich bastards who have pocketed billions of dollars themselves. But Obama is black and he’s gonna make things better, right? Hell no! He may be black, but he’s still a president, and the presidents job has always been to screw the people on the bottom and get money for the people on the top (big businesses and banks). The thirteen colonies were established to make money for England (cash crop system became a big profit). George Washington, Plantation owner and slave holder, became the first president to maintain the flow of money for his business. Currently, oil is a big money maker. The Bush family, oil company owners, took presidency through father George and son George jr. They used their power to maintain the cash flow into their business, with the help of business associates like Dick Cheney, owner of Halliburton oil well co. and Condoleezza Rice Cheveron director. All of the presidents have been rich business men, or something of the sort, and have had the best interests of businesses as their top priority. Helping U.S. citizens is a minor issue next to making money for their companies and banks. Has a president ever asked you what you need or how they can help you? They certainly don’t have a problem asking banks. They may feed us bullshit to keep us under control and to prevent us from speaking out, but they decisions are made based on money for themselves. Congress decided to give money to banks rather than back to taxpayers which would have put $250,000 into each of our pockets. That could have helped citizens and the economy.

During the Civil Rights movement, thousands of people joined in the march on Washington to fight for themselves. Do you think we can get thousands of people to join each other and fight for our rights? Will thousands of people today, get off their couches and do something about the homelessness, starvation, and abuse of power that we face today? What did they have then that we don’t have now? We know what’s going on in America, but we ignore it. We distract ourselves with 3D movies and video games while everyone around us suffers. What they had then was a voice that was loud enough to be heard. A voice that was created by the unity of people. With no one speaking out, we can’t be heard. With out unity, our voice is small. Taking the time to learn about what’s going on right now isn’t going to kill us, but ignoring it might.
