Wake Up Green America

I'm looking for fresh ideas for a lot of things, and inspiration doesn't come as easily as it used to. We're faced with a lot of dead ends, complex green strategies come to nothing confronted with the immensity of the financial resources at the disposal of the planet thrashers. It's getting harder and harder to stay one step ahead of them, even with social networks.

The Blue Meanies function in their own insulated power universe the best of intentions can't penetrate. Our only weapon is fashion, and guilt... people quit their jobs because they start feeling queasy... that's dangerous in a crap economy, with no golden parachute. In the 60's, you turned on, tuned in and dropped out. Now you try, in vain, to change the world from the inside out.

So 30 years after Earth Day, we're in a great sense, practically back where we started from, not technologically, but politically. The same reactionary mentality rules Washington and the Fortune 500, no better exemplified than by Obama showing his true pro-nuclear colors.

Wake up Green America, it's time to get back to the roots of where the environmental movement began, and that's how absurd nuclear power really is. With the collapse of that industry, will come liberation of all other energy sources, like a ball and chain finally off our feet!

Each year it gets worse, as almost every reactor in the world leaks, it just doesn't stop, does it? You know what happens when the faucet drips? Eventually the sink gets full... climate change will be the least of our worries as the remnants of humanity have to live in radiation shelters!

What I don't get, is how much of a global preoccupation this all was back in the 60's and 70's and how now, everyone has since become so complacent. It's almost as if the same psychological phenomena that takes place in reactor hosting communities, has spread to the entire population at large. The whole planet lives in a state of denial about the deadly poisons we're unleashing for the sake of hanging on to the last threads of the post-industrial civilization.
We're all about to become bedouins!
And the worse part, is that after 30 years, we have developed the alternative means to produce electricity, cheaper, better, cleaner, faster... and yet they STILL want to shuv more nukes down our throats.

These people are monsters and criminals, and much like Jon Stewart demonstrated when he spliced Bush and Obama speeches together, they both say exactly the same words, the same phrases, all that has changed is the tone in their voices.

Who do we have to thank for this... other than the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, who for some weird, strange reason, never minded living in a palacial estate just five miles south from the most dangerous nuclear power plant on earth?

Go figure, we must all be stupid monkeys!

Stone age. We can bring it in shingles, windows...the middle eastern way. Man, get a hair cut. Latvia, and Romania for example (thus Zarathustra, rather Russia--well a far corner of it) can benefit. Smoke a joint, but I don't smoke weed - love vodka. She got under my skin man. And I called you a fagot, she hates me. Freaking biotch. I should have listened. Its Euro "obsession." Freaking fagot fragrance, what about 'ol' spice'...
