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. @BruceKGagnon

The great illusion - a prayer for thanksgiving

 

Chiricahua Apache Prisoners of War at Ft. Marion in St. Augustine, Florida


Thanksgiving,
one of America's
greatest illusions,
the original sin
 
Dress up the genocide
real nice,
turkey, feathers,
pumpkin pie,
peace pipe,
native people
and the killer
christian colonists
seemingly
as friends.
 
But the truth
was otherwise.
 
The new,
soon to be empire,
rivaling Europe,
envisioned itself as
king of the global hill.
 
Washington 
had to sell
its image
as something
great and different,
from all the other
marauders
and plunderers.
 
But eventually
the turkeys come home
to roost
and the world learns
that the noble sounding
American experiment
is just a nightmare
 
Give a prayer 
of thanks today
that the veil
has been lifted
and that all 
can now see the truth,
if willing 
to open their eyes
and hearts.
 
The shining city on the hill,
streets paved in gold,
is nothing more
than a sad
illusion.
 
Just a
figment
in the pirates
imagination.
