Naomi Klien’s “The Shock Doctrine” is a New York Times best seller.
It is a scary book explaining the many machinations and illegal activities that has contributed to our topsy-turvy economy today. The manuscript pointed out documented happenings that point to profit at all costs, inclusive of which is murder and torture.
Robert F. Kennedy, the younger brother of President John F. Kennedy, wrote a book called “The Enemy Within”. In this book the Attorney General states when hearing about a deal made between the Teamsters and Freuhaupht Trucking Company, adroitly leaving out the membership of the union, exclaimed “Say it isn’t so” reminding him of the hit tune of the same name.
That is how I feel, “Say it isn’t so”. The people we rely on to protect us are making their own deals and forgetting the people they are sworn to protect. Now, we all know that most of our agency members, CIA, ATF, FBI, Immigration ect., are committed to the protection of this country. However, there are some that we have to concentrate on.
Focus on nailing the people we cannot trust. Even if it takes a glorified internal affairs nation wide, this is something we have to take care of. Maybe some Congressman or Senator will take the first step. But it has to be done. It will take plain old guts to flush out the tax illusive monies in the trillions lying about the Cayman Islands, Switzerland, the Bahamas and a multitude of other locations. Plenty for everyone who earned legal disposable income that will strengthen the world. “God help us in this endeavor”.
I don’t know about you, but I am totally disgusted with the shenanigans going on in the City of Lawrence by elected officials and their minions. Just because you were elected does not give you carte blanche to run amuck destroying the Police, Fire, City employees, and anything else you can get your mitts on. The Great City Of Lawrence is no longer great. It is the laughing stock of Massachusetts and beyond. Why it is not safe to ride through the city, never mind stop anywhere in it? You are likely to get shot or stabbed. And, where oh where are the State Representatives and Senators, and our Federal Elected Elite? Hiding their collective heads in the sand, afraid of speaking out lest it should tarnish their image? Ha! Remember the feet you stepped on to get to your positions, are the feet that will kick your rumpty dumps on the way down!! Clean it up, throw the bums out!
May the good Lord take a liking to you, do something nice for someone today. And, we wish you enough!
