American - Educated Fool


Americans, you have your TV,

Internet and schools.

There’s really, so much knowledge,

You’re educated fools.


Watch some TV.

It will tell you how to eat.

It will pump you full of sucrose,

Empty calories that taste so sweet.


It’s a trickle down news-day,

We get all we need to know,

From airheads on Fox News,

Or another brainwashing show.


Empty calories and promises,

Keep the “students” entertained,

False history and propaganda,

Means- nothing of value will be gained.


All Americans join in.

Religious idiots, do your part,

Take a child and feed it lies,

Break the spirit and break the heart.


But-“stand against abortion!

Don’t murder any fetus!”

Allow our kids to grow,

Before you cut and bleed us.


Take away the infrastructure,

That could make a difference to our nation,

Send our kids to an endless war,

Started by a corporation.


God doesn’t live on Wall Street.

God doesn’t even stop by.

For the evil of big business,

Will make the almighty God cry.


God doesn’t sit in a board room,

With other idiots in suits and ties.

While businessmen and women,

Decide where our kids will die.


God doesn’t sit in Congress,

While lawyers rob mankind.

Make laws for corporations,

Destroy the soul and the mind.


Elect another lawyer.

From Harvard or from Yale.

That lawyer will kill your children,

And hang your butt up on a nail.


You think a lawyer, a politician,

A businessman has a heart.

Put your good thoughts in one hand,

And in the other place a fart.


They’ve never run a court-room,

With honesty, in 200 years.

They laugh all the way to the bank,

While Americans live in tears.


“Seek Jesus! Obey authority!

Hunger for all that is good.

Sign up for war at the high-school,

Any good American would!”


Religious idiots! Stop it!

This America is NOT for you!

You have no idea what a lawyer is.

You don’t have a flipping clue.


God doesn’t live at the Pentagon.

God does NOT stop by!

The war machine will kill our kids,

And our nation will always cry.


Americans- you’re fools,

Merely pawns in the corporate game,

So the poor can walk in mud,

And the rich -the walk of fame.


Americans- you pray to the God of money,

You bow to the corporate cow.

And when this false God rips out your heart,

You’ll ask, “God, where are You now?”


Believe in this corporate lie,

The business suit, the business tie.

And capitalism for the few,

Is why the truth and poor suffer and die!


Elect a republican!

Elect a democrat!

Keep the status quo!

Keep the fat cats phatt!


Life’s about the bottom line.

It’s just a ledger sheet.

If you’re a lawyer or a businessman,

You know you were born to cheat.


Socialism, capitalism,

It’s all about servitude,

Democracy, autocracy,

Either way, we’re screwed.


Vote for the candidate ,

The one who most loudly screams.

But know that it’s the fascist,

That will more quickly destroy your dreams.


Go on and vote that lawyer in!

What the heck!

Billions of souls are lost,

In their game with their stacked deck.


Exercise your right to vote!

Vote for the tyrant of your choice!

You think you have a democracy.

You actually think you have a voice.


Hold your cards close to your heart.

Put your ante in the pot.

You need to wake the flock up,

The dealer knows what you’ve got.


Every square inch of Earth,

Will come under the corporate rule,

While the American remains,

The educated fool!


I’ll pray: Our Father that’s in heaven,

Hallowed be Your name,

And may Your Earth and heaven,

Both reflect the same.


America abandons God,

To vote for another lawyer to rule,

It’s war, mayhem, tyranny, utter nonsense,

And makes the American – an educated fool.


~Micky Dee~




Another hub is banned.

.

But stand by. As another voice is stifled, watch.

.

The Nazis are coming for Anne Frank. Stand by. Sit by.

.

The CIA is invading another country.

Sit by. Stand by.

.

It's business as usual.

Bow to the sacred cow..

.


If I do not protest the prohibition of free speech - it is a sin.

If I do not speak out against lies - it is a sin.


I will not bow to the sacred cow.

I do not worship money.

I will not pretend that all is okay.


I can't look the other way.

That is how I am.


Make up your mind "who" you are.


"They" are watching.

Yes sir TeaPartyCrasher.

And good luck with trashing the tea party.

I heard they were changing their name to fascists pigs from hell. What a joke. Much like the a$$hole$ who own hubpages. Cowards, fools, pigs, selfish.....

Sorry TeaPartyCrasher - I get carried away.

It's only because I hate fascism. and depriving the right to speak is about as hellish as an entity can get.

God bless you.

God bless the TRUTH.

And may hubpages either close down or find God.

God bless you Bobbi.

The patriots of the world need to unite.

The evil is alive and well right here and all across America.

It's just concentrated in Washington, DC - District of CON-ARTISTS - District of Criminals- District of CAREER-CRIMINAL$.

Revolution! Viva the Revolution.

America -actually the military of the USA, the CIA of the USA is OWNED and OPERATED by Pig Bu$ine$$ like hubpages.

Why should any of us here stay to support this pig bu$ine$$ right here?

Mickey,

Did you wear out the heads on your bongos when you were "writing"? Or should I call you....Maynard G. Krebs?

While I don't think politicians particularly care what we think, it is important to fight for what you believe in. I totally understand your cynicism, but we need to demand our representatives (we ARE in a republic and not a democracy) actually do what we say and want. If we just tune out and complain, it is over. That's what they want.

The tea party at least has the right ideas, but if they are not held accountable then they'll be seduced by the Beltway mindset.

elenox- what color is the sky where you live.

Are you Eva Braun reincarnated?

Did you learn, "but we need to demand our representatives (we ARE in a republic and not a democracy) actually do what we say."

Did you write that on the black-board a thousand times at teaparty school?

Then you say, "If we just tune out and complain,it is over."

You really don't know how America works do you? I am tuned in and you have your head up your butt.

Have you not read anything? How old are you?

Because let me tell you something - drug companies BREAK THE LAW.

LAWYERS MAKE THE LAWS.

LAWYERS HELP THE DRUG COMPANIES BREAK THE LAW. Are you with me so far. OI want to move slowly because if you're with the teaparty you're obviously very selfish, very stupid, or very selfish AND stupid.

IF YOU ELECT A LAWYER FROM THE TEAPARTY - well you're dumber than a brick but, You ARE ELECTING A LAWYER.

what part of this do you not understand?

Because I'm 60 years old. I've seen JFK, LBJ, Dick Nixon (still not the biggest Dick out there), Ge3rald Pardon ME Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald I can't remember selling weapons to Iran Reagan, George Herbert Walker CIA BUSH, Bill I never inhaled Clinton, GW I can kill more people than you Bush and -- why don't I stop here. But in my 60 years - THERE HAS NOT BEEN ONE GOOD LAWYER. NOT A SENATOR. NOT A REPRESENTATIVE.

But - just like the pharmaceutical companies that BREAK THE LAW - and are not to EVER deal in a government program EVER AGAIN - A LAWYER WILL GIVE THAT DRUG COMPANY A SUBSIDIARY. To what elenox? Can you guess? It's to screw the AMERICAS AGAIN!

But you want to tell me that a lawyer now dressed up in "teaparty" clothing is different.

You are one stupid person. Good luck, I'll pass on your "new look for the same old Satan".

Mickey Dee,

Well, I really don't think I are dum. Thanks for letting me know. You win the ad hominem war. I thought the Maynard G. Krebs line was kind of funny.

To the point, I will try to speak to your post. I didn't see anywhere inside your rant any solution other than "hey, you stupid guy, wake up."

I am aware that people in higher places get their way. My point is that you and I aren't really privy to those meetings and proceedings. What can we do? We need to protect and ensure our liberties that we do have. Elect good people when you can and push for sunshine laws, protest practices when possible and work to enact the government that the Founders created.

Fixation on the lawyers of all the Bilderbergs and Tri-Lateral Commission all that you want, but I never said anything about any of that except that the Tea Party has the right concepts. And, that if they stray from that (i.e. corrupt lawyers getting new Flintstones Chewables on the market etc., then they deserve our disdain and to be rode out on a rail).

I do understand the feelings of cynicism. It all seems like the same old merry-go-round with new operators, but you have freedom and liberty to go out and build a life to enjoy and share with your family. I am about 20 years younger than you, but you have freedom. And I do know my fair share of history, thank you very much. When you are confronted with someone who wants to infringe on your individual liberty then let loose this kind of vitriol on them, not people like me who evidently aren't as enlightened as you.

You can call it Skull & Bones. You can call "part" of it the Masons. You can call it a bunch of businessmen choking the world. Vote. Make sure your vote for your APPOINTED candidate counts.

America has invaded 17 countries right here in these Americas.

The CIA has MURDERED elected officials all over the Earth.

There has NOT BEEN ONE HONEST COURTROOM IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IN ITS 200 YEAR EXISTENCE.

Lawyers perpetuate their own bleeding of the American people and America KEEPS electing the creeps.

The truth is, we find out more about FREEDOM when we speak out against what is happening then we do when we nod our heads and follow along. Conservatives are all about assimilation. If you don't get on board with the need for greed, then you're audience will be limited. If it starts to get too big, they'll start to find other ways to punish you - think Martin Luther King Jr and the CIA and FBI files that were kept on him. Heck, Nelson Mandella was labelled a terrorists at one time. I wonder how many terrorist today are really fantastic leaders like Mandella and their character is being assasinated by the government and media of America and the West?

I suppose it is like the cable channels. FOX channel isn't really getting any new converts. It's just making sure those who are in the fold, keep following. Same for MSNBC and CNN. All that political air is just maintaining the audience. Most people have already chosen a side of the fence on which to stand.

Me, I prefer to get off this ruddy planet all together and be united with my Savior. But that will have to wait on His time. He'll come soon enough. In the meantime, we are in the world, but not of the world - and the world hates us for this. All I can say to those who hate my opinions is - I love you anyway. Peace

It takes a rare courage to speak such bald truth in our surveillance-industrial-society where dissent is being monitored and sometimes even punished.

Sinclair Lewis said long ago: "When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and waving a cross." Your poem captured it.

Another good hub. You write so seldom nowadays I have been thinking that maybe you are getting sick of the same old corruption and lies from everywhere. There are some hubbers I will not read because they only have hate against certain members of the government. It doesn't matter to them whether the person they are writing about could be speaking the truth or doing something good at any time. It is the fact of who they are and someone they do not support. That is enough for the hate.

I mainly only come on hubpages now to see how popular my Pakistani hubs are because I am writing a book about my travels there which will be coming out on Kindle soon.

When I first started on Hub Pages I thought this was a more serious place for writing articles. There are a lot of good people here though. You are one of them and I always like to read your hubs.

Thank you.

Yes Hummingbird. I get sick of responding to lies. I get sick of the hubmonsters censuring the truth. Hubs are culled because hubs don't conform to the lies.

It's frustrating dear Hummingbird.

Fellow hubbers want peace tranquility and peaches and ice-cream. Screw all that. I want the truth. The world is suffering under the iron FIST of an oppression Americans would have thought impossible. It comes FROM AMERICA. It's apathy. It's false patriotism. There are cowards and bullies all over America and these hubpages.

America has NEVER in 200 years run a court system for doodoo. Never. Yet Americans swear the next democrat will walk on water. Republicans will pave heaven, the moon, and every planet in their enslaving and murdering of God's people. Of course - EVERY democrat is a republican in sheep's clothing. But republicans are just so mean they abandon ALL words of God. They don't even know God or His teachings. This American political system is a lie. It has NO roots in God. Thi8s world belongs to Satan /this world - this America belonged to Satan when George Washington was in charge. It was under Satan's thumb 2,000 years ago. This America under the Bushes, Clintons, Reagans, Obama - belongs to Satan - whether Christians get off their lazy stupid asses to admit it or not.

I'm not running for mayor or any public office and THIS AMERICA is a lie.

I'll prove it any day. The evidence is STAGGERING.

God bless you dear Hummingbird.

And saddest of all, most people are now resigned to becoming used to being constantly lied to...it's as though they expect the lie to come.

Who are our heroes any more? And who can we look up to any more? This is why I hate politics so much...
