Osama Swings ElectionWritten by Ed Howes
With all noise about undecided U.S. voters through Summer of 04, it is safe to assume more than two per cent were undecided a few weeks before election. Among decideds, an equal or greater number would have swung their votes at drop of a hat. Osama came on TV and told them not to support George Bush. So they went to polls and proved their patriotism, by doing exactly what Osama expected them to do. So why did Osama want this president reelected?
Fact is, War on Terror is best thing that ever happened for Osama, Pakistan and George Bush, who share many secret agreements between them. This has been case since November, 2001, when Pakistan, George Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, and Tommy Franks agreed to airlift as many as 4000 members of Al Qaeda from city of Konduz, Afghanistan; to safety in Pakistan. Another 4000 members of Al Qaeda were allowed to head for border on ground. Where are they now? Spain? France? Germany? Holland? England? Canada? Mexico? Iraq? Who cares?
This betrayal, this High Treason, was reported on PBS news magazine, Now with Bill Moyers, Friday, 21 February, 2003 and should have reached over two million viewers. The war drums were beating loudly for invasion of Iraq, so fact is Americaís Commander-in-Chief has betrayed not only American people and armed forces, but a suffering world unable to resolve conflict without violence. This proves entire War on Terror a huge fraud to increase size, cost and power of national governments around globe. This is of no concern to anyone I know of. Who is there to say no thanks?
If you belong to Republican Party, you can now get away with murder, whether victims are innocent Iraqi people, U.S. military forces, or foreign captives. Isnít that exciting - intoxicating? Isnít war grand? Doesnít it make you proud to vote? Can you guess who will pay price of these crimes, done in name of American security, freedom and democracy?
No single person in all Islam has done more to recruit and inflame terrorists than George W. Bush over past three years. And where has Osama been hiding past three years, if not in Pakistan? So why would Osama want anyone other than George Bush as President of United States? To save most precious American lives? Sure, thatís what he says in his videos, but donít believe him for a minute. It would be unpatriotic to believe an enemy, wouldnít it? Of course it would. It doesnít matter if your enemy speaks any truth, it is your duty to ignore him or call him a liar. Good boy! Good girl!
CyclesWritten by Ed Howes
There are few people in this world unaware of cycles. Few escape childhood without observing cycles of seasons, birth and death, day and night, full moons and new moons, ocean tides. Birthday anniversaries and weekly cycles of seven days. If we suspect that all we know is cyclical and cycles overlap, we suspect rightly. Welcome back to 1960s. Welcome back to dawning of Age of Aquarius.
ďHarmony and understanding, sympathy and peace aboundingĒ. A war supported by all involved in U.S. and quietly opposed by half people who are paying for it; people who will likely grow more vocal in coming months and years. People, who will be telling us to tune out, turn off and drop out. Reforming wicked is no viable option and their systems will not be reformed from within.
Fundamentalists of every faith pray and work for fall of wicked and their symbols of material power. They are united in this effort though they identify one another as enemies. Christian fundamentalists despise Muslim fundamentalists who attack their common enemies. The Christian fundamentalists, who would tell us of their righteousness, support wicked in their tithes and offerings, support corporate media, corporate government, corporate churches, corporate schools and corporate markets. They gloat over recent political successes and grow exceedingly arrogant in them.
They will not prevail for much longer, as a progressive backlash among thinking people is gaining momentum. This presidential election is their last hurrah for regressives. The people have begun tuning them out and dismissing their power as a historical fluke. What is conservatism but fearful holding on to that which only serves wicked? What is conservatism but fear of change they can postpone but cannot prevent? By definition, conservatives fear fall of wicked and power of simple, power of ordinary, power of love. They have no place in new age of science and brotherhood. They are but self defeating obstacles to righteousness and progress. That is why they do not speak of progressives, but liberals. They love Orwellian double speak with which they slander and ridicule their opponents. They love double speak because they are double minded and unstable in all their ways. When sleeping masses wake, as they did not when Adolph Hitler rose to power, conservatives will be a historical footnote of end time struggle to usher in Kingdom Age.
The nearly impotent Democratic Party allowed and assisted Republicans to define them in 2004. They missed every opportunity to respond in kind throughout presidential campaign. If liberal is derogatory label for progressive, why isnít regressive derogatory label for conservative? The leadership and membership of U.S. corporate political parties all have their heads where sun does not shine. In darkness of valley of shadow of death, they fear evil they create and rightly so.
