The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

The Neo-con job




I am so over
the neo-cons,
chief architects
of the con-job.
They've made a 
running their capers.
Call them globalists,
call them fascists
or oligarchs. 
Call them banksters in London,
or Wall Street and
retired generals 
at Lockheed Martin.
They are collectively,
arrogantly standing
as Mr. Big. 
Now even performing
on Broadway, 
or found in  
a recent edition of
The Atlantic,
Die Zeit, Le Monde,
The Guardian, 
La Repubblica,
The Jerusalem Post,
Kenyan Daily Post
or Chosun Ilbo.

It's nearly all the same story.
in deception
and muscle,
the mobster kind.
Guns a-blazen.
The neo-cons
often get lumped into 
the Republican party.
But the neo-cons work with
both corrupt parties,
they control 
much of everything
across the west
and beyond.
These oligarchs
at times have 
competing interests,
though when 
the neo-cons
stick together,
as we watch in fear
their endless war 
on Russia and China,
and the global south.
It's a hustle,
a canard,
a ruse,
a con-job.
And we
are the suckers. 
Go stand
on a corner
and complain,
make some noise. 

Arouse the sleeping,
disturb the 
supposed tranquility.

"The worst of all possible worlds would see speech policy added to the long list of under-publicized areas of near-total consensus between the two parties, like military spending, bank bailouts, corporate taxation, and warrantless surveillance.

We’re almost there."
