“Does your family possess firearms?” “Have you ever touched a gun?” “Where are they stored in the house?” These are now to be considered customary questions that your child will be asked when they come in for influenza or a bad cold. Hey, no offense, but isn’t this more than a hair’s breadth past being totally invasive into topics that are nobody else’s business? Or even worse, totally usurping the rights of the parent responsible for that child? Mind you I’m not talking about juvenile felons or dysfunctional families with long histories of neglect or abuse. This includes ‘everyone’. The current stand by the American Pediatric Association, as noted on the local news, seems to be that it is not only their right but their duty to invade the average household.
Forget if you own an AR-15 assault rifle or not, what does this sort of institutional attitude say about the attitude of the governing powers of this nation? Think also what it feels like to see a total stranger put their hands inside your four year old son or daughter’s clothes in the plain view of the general public at a DHS checkpoint? Is it right for everyone’s children to be molested for reasons of serving public safety? What sort of bureaucrat can dream up such egregiously unlawful policies to enact without conscience of the general public? But, what is worse is that there is no sign of public outcry to these policies that even as long ago as three decades back would have resulted in a heated confrontation nationwide by thousands of irate citizens, jamming government phone lines and clogging the thoroughfares of government offices. Consider that if the current generation of parents or those aspiring to start a family are too cowed down by their Socialist Obama worshipping brand of education to think that there is no other recourse beyond ignorance and denial, then they and their subsequent offspring richly deserve to suffer all the indignities rained down upon them for their failure to be responsible citizens.
The figurative virtual banners that fly before our patriotic ever-caring military empire’s ongoing conquest of the remaining earthly resources resound with dulcet public relations propaganda. “WE” bring ‘freedom’ in our wake! The resultant residue of this ‘freedom march’ includes the disabling of any competitive infrastructure, the elimination of any significant contra-productive national movements, and a wealth of airborne depleted uranium. The kind that contaminates the landscape for millions of years into the future. Why do they hate our ‘freedom’? Each night, “WE” sit before our flickering flatscreen’s, barricaded within the imagined safety of our living cubicles drinking in the artificially sweetened empathetic prose reported by government agents posing as reporters. These ‘straw-man’ journalists precisely mouthing well calculated prompter speak in repetitive recitations that never illuminate any real facts. The official ‘chapter and verse’ concerning the ongoing rape and violence plundering of our very way of life scrupulously ignored. They remain silent on topics so overwhelming in scale and effect that their immediate effect quickly eclipses in level of seriousness that slack jawed environmental soda jerk known as “Global Warming.” It would all be laughable, just like “The Simpson’s”, if not for the fact of the amount of irreparable damage done to society and the people forced to contend with it.
OK, look, I know that there is no possibility at this point for inspiring any moral outrage or motivation to take responsible action by anyone in our thoroughly corrupted consumer paradise. Who really cares about what the government or police do to you? If the Nutrasweet tastes as good and the corn syrup keeps on flowing into your gas tank then what is the ‘brow ha ha’? After all, studies show that the Monsanto soy milk is infinitively more healthy than all that toxic ‘moo cow stuff’! That same one that doctors say builds up bad Cholesterol to choke off your arteries. Just as long as they don’t cut off one’s thumbs so you can’t text like David Caravaggio in the, “English Patient”, it will be alright.
