Hats off to you, KD. Not only do you bring truth to light, but you offer comprehensive, sane solutions. My opinion, not that anyone asked for it, is that before your solutions can be studied, ruminated, and put forth, the country as a whole must face the dire consequences of our actions. This includes everything that has been put forth over the past 70 plus years.

I say this because in my experience there is a dearth of common sense and practicality among the general populace. Almost everyone in my immediate circle of acquaintances (I hesitate to use the term "friends" since Covid 19 lay bare their true reliability) is a steadfast believer in anything and everything the 24/7 CNN, Fox, legacy media spews forth.

I'm talking real pain. Empty stomachs, joblessness, homelessness, random and situational violence need to visit each and every one of us so that we can make real reform in this diseased, godless cuntry (sic). I honestly don't see any other way out of this except to bring the people to their knees. I've been waiting for people to wake the f*ck up for over 20 years. BTW, my "wake-up call", if you will, occurred on 9/11. It was a slow process for me, but it was when I began questioning the rhetoric that constantly played in the media.

Along with my father and brother, I visited Ground Zero during Thanksgiving break after the attack. The ferry that carried us across Staten Island to Manhattan seared into my memory the still smoldering ruins that were slowly being transported to New Jersey. The stench of death hung heavy in the air. My anger slowly turned to hatred, first directed toward "the enemy". My later realization was that much of what we suffered that horrible day was a direct result of our actions.

I deeply respect the men and women who were murdered that day. My heart is still filled with sorrow and horror as to what they suffered. But when I saw "W" on t.v., climb up upon the World Trade Center debris and proclaim that we all "must go shopping", my spidey sense was awakened. Nothing would ever be the same for me after witnessing that display.

At the time, I knew that we are ruled by feckless, impudent, self-serving cowards, people who view us as cash cows, to be worked, taxed, abused, and then discarded, like the rubble that lay where the towers once stood.

We will never be free from their iron grip until people get good and pissed off. I'm encouraged by watching Sri Lanka, the Netherlands, and other places, where people have the guts to rip the head off snake that has been strangling them. With God's mercy and guidance, perhaps we can return to the principal of law and order upon which this country was founded.
