17. You nailed it!

In 2008, I thought Obama was the Second Coming; I was elated. Then he appointed Summers and Geithner, and I knew we'd been played, BIG time. Not long after, it's revealed that Goldman Sachs was his biggest single donor.
The point being, the Bad Guys have protection at the tippity-top. The police go psycho on anyone who exercises their Constitutional right to protest unjust laws and policies, and every politician is bought and paid for by malignant filth like Monsanto.
So, what's a decent person supposed to do, grab his or her ankles and just take it from these psychopaths? The system is rigged against us, top to bottom. We're already enslaved, to all intents and purposes, and the orange jumpsuits aren't too far behind.
I've been watching this shit unfold for fifty years, and there is no room for discussion. It's happening. We either fight on our feet, or die on our knees. I'm on the downhill slide to seventy, but I can still snap-shoot the seeds out of a grape, off-hand. And I. Don't. Kneel.
