Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

my letter to the americans....

I get frustrated with the refusal of the vast majority of Amercans to inform themselves about the facts about America's disgusting, selfish and murderous foreign policy over the last 100 years or so (I guess it would be just too "un-American" to do so.)

I obviously piss many Americans off with my anti-American ranting. As a committed pacifist, the only weapon I have is ranting and protesting, and even this right may soon be taken away from me under America's new wonderful "security" laws imposed internationally via their "advisory" interactions with "democratic" governments like ours.

I know why Americans are so terrified. They're getting a sense of the amount of rage that their mad brand of globalised capitalism is generating and they realise that most of the raging humans are not sworn pacifists like myself, and being just as war-hungry as America, these raging humans have decided to come after Americans now if America persists with its mad ways. And America will continue with its mad ways ("war on terror" is a classic example.) It wouldn't be America if it didn't. It's America's insane version of "democracy". America is insane and it doesn't know that it's insane.

Gerog W. Bush will not fix it. John Kerry cannot fix it.

America has doomed itself into becoming the most murderous, fascist regime the world has ever known. It will murder tens, if not hundreds, of millions before it finally collapses in a screaming heap. It will do this under the delusion of "keeping the world safe". It will happen that way because American "democracy" is a diabolical caricature of what true democracy is.

But sadly, Americans are obsessed with the need to "be positive" and what I have to say is way too "negative" so no one's listening. I don't think Americans can afford to think about what I have to say. I think it would be way too threatening to their self-image.

I just love the way Americans blame their governments and refuse to take any personal responsibility for the fact that they elected these governments. When the Republicans rule, the Democrats say "it's not our fault" and when the Democrats rule, the Republicans say "it's not our fault", whilst all the while both parties support the foreign policies which impose global capitalism, and the McCulture that comes with it, upon a huge mass of people who don't want it but who are denied the right to vote against it. Well now they're voting with airliners, truck bombs, car bombs and exploding backpacks and "girdles".

Neither party will do what would end anti-American terrorism completely and immediately: America will not stop interfering in the world ("in America's interests" of course). It will not pull its military bases out of where they're not wanted. It will not stop supporting Israel's murderous land-grab in Palestine (they're doing it with American military hardware and billions of U.S. dollars of "aid".) It will not insist that Israel dismantle its nuclear arsenal. Why will none of these things happen? Because too few Americans are willing to endure the discomfort of reading books critical of America's foreign policy so they never even find out what's really going on. If it's not on CNN or Fox, it's not happening, right?

You wonder why I hold the average American in contempt? I think with democracy comes the obligation to hunt down the truth before you vote on anything, but the avarage American voter is pig-ignorant about what his/her own country has really been up to around the world. They're far too busy believing the warm fuzzy propaganda fed to them by their politicians and Big Business interests through their media, corporate hype, their churches and their schools. Oh don't worry, dudes and dudettes, I'm just as hard on the idiots here in Australia, but per capita, I think we have more informed voters here. We had about one million demonstrate at anti-war rallies in mid-Feb 2003. Per capita that would equate to about 15 million American demonstrators. How many demonstrated in America in mid-Feb 2003, I wonder...

(ahhhh... that feels better...)

Gerry, as usual, I agree with most of what you are saying here.

The vast amount of U.S. citizens who go about their daily routines while remaining totally clueless to political/world affairs is staggering!

The bottom lines are these: either they're too mentally challenged to pick up on some of the "finer points" (like- Iraq is a potentially powerful ally/interest because it has lots of oil), just politically uninterested (which takes the very principle of democracy and flushes it down the toilet) or they believe what they want to believe and leave it at that.

In a RECENT poll of Bush supporters this year, 70% of them believe that Saddam had weapons of mass distruction and 40% of them think that Saddam had nuclear (or as Bush says it, "new-clur) weapons!

Of course, anyone with half a brain or half an eye or ear open knows that all of that is CRAP! Still they believe it and run and hide under their beds everytime that George W. begins chanting his favorite warning: "TERROR! TERROR! TERROR!"

In the U.S., from the age of 3 or 4, we are "instinctively" taught by our parents, relatives, friends, teachers, politicians, that the U.S. is the "good guy." We learn all that we've done in the past to "save the world from evil."

Forget the fact that to "earn" this country, we slaughtered millions of Native Americans. That was "manifest destiny." We were here to "civilize" these savages and even more important, to give them RELIGION! Forget the fact that they had their own beliefs that frankly, to my mind, make a hell of a lot more sense than the Christian bull shit. They believed that god was encompassed with nature. Pretty savage mindset, don't you think?

The point is, in the U.S., patriotism is pretty much drilled into us from the moment after we croak out "mama" or "dada."

In the U.S., a lot of kids/folks never get past that point of an infantile belief/assumption that EVERYTHING that we do as a country (whether it's by politicians or American businesses) is right and just for the rest of the world. We like Coca-Cola, so, of course you'd like it Down Under or in Korea too! How many f-kin' McDonald's do you have in your neighborhood, Gerry?

Finally, America will wake up one day and realize that it's NOT all about US. Unfortunately, that day will likely be preceded by some catastophic event, one that will make 9/11 look like a college fraternity prank in comparison.

So, did I just pass your GerryRantings 101 class, professor?

Go to the top of the GerryRantings 101 class, Jeff. That rant earned you a High Distinction! But I'm a bit worried what the GOBs will do to you when they track you down.

This whole Christian thing is so stuffed! The Old Testament is completely incompatible with Jesus's teachings as far as I'm concerned. Whilst "Christians" continue to drag that piece of highly suspect and ugly doctrine around with them, they'll continue to be unable to follow Jesus's true teachings as I understand them to be. I gotta stop here, of I'll get a High Distinction myself.

Coca Cola? They own 30% of Australia's spring water rights. Water has become a commodity and you Yanks are nicely dispossing us of it. There's a blog post on this somewhere in the archives. Use blogger's search function if you want to find it.

McDonalds? In the area where I live we have declared a "Mac Free Zone". McDonalds has so far not been able to get approval from the local authority to open a store here, but in time that will unfortunately change. Ironically, I was once a McDonalds manager. I've come a long way, baby!

And I think George pronounces nuclear as "new-killer". I think he quite likes the sound of that...
