Working on it.
We are going to take this lying down, just sitting back staring at the few articles staking claims at things worth calling ‘change’. We’ll pretend its taking the good with the bad and still better than the last. The red and blue parties are and will continue to be the same with most media only giving light to the most ludicrous and insane the population will vote out anyway. The story you don’t see is the lack of a party line - the ideals have blurred the same and has become nothing but absolute power with a faux-vote to make most of the general public feel secure. This didn’t start with Obama or Bush, people are just now beginning to take notice. If this were most smaller countries, we’d already be forced into a civil war. The problem is the facts have been twisted to a point nobody even knows what they are fighting for.
America, the beautiful - or America, the clever dystopia? It doesn’t matter, there’s no real change on the horizon so we should keep bickering about the little things that’ll give way. Maybe there’ll be less gun violence when we try to take it all away, maybe love will prevail and gays will be able to get married in every state, maybe big business will collapse and money will come from the ground up, but most likely only some of this will take place in our time or by the time it does, it won’t matter because we’ve chosen to ignore the subjects of these past regimes that will open the doors for the future to be filled with more alarming deceit and sheer treachery against the people. We’re slaves to money and media theatrics, we’ll believe anyone with enough passion in their voice. Democracy will revert back to monarchy and we won’t even care so long as we have deals at IKEA and Wal-Mart will match any store’s prices. The distress felt around the world and right out the front door isn’t our concern, so long as our temporary house-coffin is fitted to make us feel secure. Shop, ‘til you drop. Work until you can afford to do what you actually want at least a few times a year. It’s a joke, but capitalism lets us all laugh with it a time or two.
There are better ideals already in place, but we’ll never see actual beautiful change until all this corruption and the current legislation we choose to tolerate are laid to waste. In the end, the greatest threat to America is America itself because the expiration date was already set the moment we rose to power with our weapons, never knowing everything we fought for would soon be outdated. The wars will go on and on, once again even with ourselves. Nobody will stop to ask if there’s a better way because it’s the way of life. It’s humanity at its finest. Fighting keeps us all tricked into thinking the world is making progress.
There will be no progress until all arms are laid down and all government step down. You’ll know this has happened when people stop caring about the borders of a nation and become open to the problems of the whole world. Money won’t matter because no one will feel the need to be better than anyone and no child will starve from a lack of funding. I say, it’s time to evolve. But until then, America keep pushing legislation closer and closer to fucking yourself with your own atom bombs. That’ll show the world, right? And note, this has only been a test - please return to your media drivel. I know it’s a safer place to stand thinking half a nation backs your ill-construed beliefs. But you will find me refusing this status-quo, forever and always. Learn a simple lesson: Change will not come in the form of a president, congress-person, or monarch - it comes from the people. We The People at a global scale. Do you want the history books to read of our generation’s success at change, or should your children read we let history repeat without putting our foot down and shouting we’ve had enough?
I’ve had enough and this is no longer my country - nor yours.

Happy birthday, Hunter.
If I’d written all the truth I knew for the past ten years, about 600 people - including me - would be rotting in prison cells from Rio to Seattle today. Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism.
March 7, 2012- The morning revealed its ugly boring head as my eyes came to. Dry, flickering awake as my throat gave notice it was thirsty. Water would work, but I would need several glasses before lighting my first cigarette.
Next the machines powered on, start windows, password prompts. There’s a whole world in there. Men, women, children all flocking to one another for an ego rub and to promote beliefs, sometimes laughs.
Mostly untouched and unmolested by the powers that be, until today…
Today began the new cloak and dagger tactic. Charity they called it. A group called Invisible children hides behind the mask of a Joseph Kony. A dictator of children in the middle of nowhere in Uganda; the group uses human emotion in media to promote the end of his power via U.S intervention.
The people are weak in mind and don’t see as I do. They spam it everywhere, in one day millions of people are registered as a number in the fight against our own freedom and promotion of war. Nobody looks at history, nobody questions it. You either support it or you are a heartless bastard.
How they could believe a small time charity goes viral while the Anonymous and Occupy front have grown quiet should be evidence enough. I have no evidence for the agenda you are about to read, but I wish I did for the sake of many children.
The video is a man and his child speaking of one single child from Uganda who escaped the wrath of Kony, musical ambiance, smiling and crying children, and a clear voiceover to sway the hearts of many. To the blind eye it is hidden why this has become an important issue other than the Kony 2012 yard signs accompanied by the obligatory Obama 2012 signs that flash the screen followed by the statement of Barack being the movements original political supporter.
The mission? To plaster the cities with posters supporting another war and demand the voice of celebrities that already practice as Liberal Africa activists. The video uses Facebook to such an extent that it couldn’t be done without copyright approval from the corporation itself, yet supporters are still asked to write Zuckerberg to announce his approval.
It’s so clever, it’s so genius.
By supporting project Kony 2012, they support Obama’s re-election and demand celebrities to do the same in a roundabout way. The election is over already. Ron Paul’s liberal supporters flock to the opposing view to promote the end of tyranny, their candidates’ non-interventionist agenda ignored. Their planned internet strategies and viral videos destroyed overnight by one campaign with a single video leaving only the rich and insanely open religious GOP members to lose the election.
The irony of all this is everyone supporting intervention in Uganda is mostly war ending activists. The presence in Uganda for good reasons will bring back the saint-like appearance of the United States and will soften the bad press when the bombs begin to drop over Iran.
This is already happening, they are sending soldiers over to train children to kill other kids that were once just like them. The last group we trained slapped us in the face with two planes, but nobody has learned their lesson. As George Orwell once said: “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.” The show has begun. The strings are in place. And you are all the puppets.
Semper Fidelis to death.

I want to make a promise to you, the reader. And I don’t know if I can fulfill it tomorrow, or even the day after that. But I put the bastards of the world on notice; that I don’t have their best interest at heart. I will try to speak for my reader- that is my promise- and it will be a voice made of ink and rage.
