Yeah, Well You Finally Stopped Getting Mad


Here's a popular "Letter to America" and a new reply from America below.

You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.

You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn't get mad when we spent over 600 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn't get mad when you saw the Abu Grahib photos.

You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn't get mad when we let a major US city drown.

You didn't get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when.. when... wait for it... when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all OK with you but helping other Americans... well fuck that.

That about right? You know it is.

That about right? You know it is.

If the two tribes of party loyalists are done exposing each other's hypocrisy, can we get on to some independent activism?

Am I the only one who noticed this who article is, something funny about it. It should read: "Why did you not do anything" when that happened, Instead it says "why did you not get mad" when that happened. Then the American response would not be so easy. You could not say, "well, I was mad"; instead you would have to answer why you did nothing.In other words, this article makes little sense on the reply, and the initial letter could have been more specific for the idiots in America. I think more serious stuff should be listed on this site, and not stupid stuff like this. Does anyone else agree?

The right could come up with a parallel list of Liberal whoring contradictions..........when the real issue is that class ideologies have never been consistent, coherent.

We need a unified social principle, ideology to confront the empirical contradictions of both the liberal whores, and conservative class thugs. We need to reclaim the universal language of the revolutionary liberals, and revolutionary socialists, before they were co opted by both class ideologies, and Stalinist, derived class distorted outcomes.

We need a universal language, social terminology that sort out the long history of middle class distortions, ideological distortions caused by class deformed middle layers and their oligarchies.

World Comment to American Citizens:

Why did you not question, and do something about your Democrates who were all funding a war they swore during elections that they would stop?

Why did you not question Bush's second election when you already had ideas years ago that his first election was stolen due to Diebold machines and every dirty trick in the book?

Why did you not question, and enforce better rules for business rules, that would not allow money schemes like seen with Enron and the ones that followed?

Why did you give them even more money for your war department when you already owe so much from borrowing from other countries for these wars of yours?

Why do you not single out the corruption in your country, your corrupt business that run your public servants?

Why do you not show your dead army men when they come back to your home with spirits broken, confused with lie you told them, some crippled or dead; why does the public not see the face of unnecessary wars?

If your country is so free, then why do you not do all these things; we all thought America was the melting pot of ideas and would evolve in the world instead of rape and destroy it?

Why have you not noticed when vacationing abroad, that you are not welcomed; why have you not sensed that you are a bully and we only like your money?

Why is it you think we are jealous of you and your country, when most of the world has better people, cheaper medicine, a better education, and live longer happier lives?

When will you get you military basses, soldiers, and CIA; when will they leave?

When are you going to stop spying on the world, and now yourselves?

When will you stop saying you are aiding countries; when really, you are just scamming us, stealing, and having military exercises that we did not permit?

Why are you letting your congress start a new Cold War with Russia buy pulling such stunts as missile shields in Russia's back yard, and also interfere with it's break away states and put in corrupt thugs that do the bidding for America in other's countries?

Why do you steal the pensions of hard working men, and ship away the jobs overseas so that your children have no employment.

Why do you have the most expensive medicine, when other countries seem to take care of their people for far less?

American Comment to World:

I did not know all this was going on: I watch CNN, Fox, NBC, CBS, and PBS.
I made fun of most the people who told me what really is happening.
I got mad when I started to accept the truth of what is happening.
Then I rationalized and said "that is just the way the world is".
I only starting hanging out with people who did not talk about politics.
I kept busy with things like my car, football, and other distractions so that I would not think about politics.
I got mad at everyone who mentions politics.
I finally accept the truth but feel like an insignificant person like me could not do anything to make things better.
I just voted for another guy because he looks nice on television, and has a nice personality; but didn't bother to check out how he voted while working for us before.
I voted for another guy because my friends like him.
Now I see that things are even worse but someone else will have to fix it; I am too busy.
No, I did nothing. I knew about it, but cared only for myself. And there is nothing wrong with my behavior because I am not responsible for any of this. And if the world is trying to send me a message to be accountable for what my country does; then my reply is "I got mad about it",; what, do you expect me to do something, you think it is part my fault? And the world response is: Yes, we expected you to be responsible in light of the facts; that was the purpose of the first letter we sent you, asking you why you did nothing and you still have not answered the question. If your representatives will do this to us abroad, then why would they not do it to you at your home.

Getting mad about something doesn't equate to solving the problem. So if everyone was equally mad, which the post suggests they should be, what would happen? Getting mad would result only in - being mad - so it's pointless.

There is a solution. Getting mad isn't necessary. If people want to do something together and change things it's relatively simple. That doesn't mean it's easy, just simple. The people who we're told we should be mad at need our participation to do the things they do. When we stop participating these people will lose there ability to function.

The ways and means are already written out and there are people trying to persuade others to act. David and his followers could join in this action. Or they can continue to do what they've been doing. I have put all these solutions on my "Watching The World" blog. If anyone want's to do something you can contact me. Or just visit the site and contact the people with the plan directly.

In any case the answer to this, and all problems, is non-participation. Non-participation starves the problem. Participation feeds it. Learn how and get others involved. Then, and only then, will things change.
