Wake Up From the Dream

“America is not a young land: it is old and dirty and evil before the settlers, before the Indians. The evil is there waiting.”

William S. Burroughs

Reading this stopped me dead in my tracks, cold. For I have felt this way too...about this spit of land that I live on now. You can feel it rumbling under the sun and beach and ice cream children. It is there. Energy from the past lingers. And I do believe this was the place of the first encounter between the people living here and the arriving settlers. The energy is here.

Hopeless

I am your mother

Spiritual Intuition

I've seen it in a young woman-- walking zombie-like across the street at 5:00 am, thinking she is either drugged out or under some kind of mind-control. I've seen it in the harsh treatment of the summer help by the locals. I've seen it in the little blue pin-wheels blowing in the wind on the lawn of a local bank, representing children who have been abused. I've seen it in the number of homeless on the streets, and how they are shuffled along so as not to bother the tourist. And I've seen it in the cavalier treatment of justice in a murder trial.

I also happen to know a woman who's sister was murdered....her body buried in the woods here....one of many. And the odd thing, is, she's friends with relatives of the man who killed her sister. Small place.

So, you can feel it in the air if you are attuned to that kind of thing...and many here are. It's an artistic community and also one of alternative life-styles. Mixed in with some very conservative retired people and some of great wealth.

American Dream?

I am your neighbor

I am your neighbor

Confederacy Never Died

It has been compared to the south, in that only a relatively small number of families settled here and they intermarried. So, you will see the same names on buildings, roads, etc. And you will often see the same name as both the defendant and judge in a trial! And actually, that trial I spoke of has been compared to the books Twelve Angry Men, and To Kill a Mockingbird.

The Reckoning

What is my point in this essay? I don't know. Burroughs words just struck me and compelled me to write. And at the same time, conjured up a poem by Jim Morrison called L'America....My America! The place I love/hate all at the same time! The place where I stood at the top of the Statue of Liberty and had the strong urge to jump! It's our destiny to be here at this time...L'America has something to do with the recompense. For it has evil in it. In the ground. In the buildings. In the old broken down brick factories that sit vacant and stare out with empty- eyed windows into the night. One can imagine all the dark and dirty secrets that roam those city streets. The long ago past and the not so distant. And it has drifted down here too. The palpable something...ready to pounce. Ready to rumble up. Ready to tell its tale. I have a feeling it will come as no surprise to many.

Be careful what you ask for….you might get it. I see native tribes are buying back land that was theirs in treaties.

If they ever decide to fight these treaties in court, you may be out of a home, Wasichu.

This is the time of reckoning. I’d be careful with the hubris and inhumanity if I were youze.

The common decency of Trump country….

“During a December 5 rally in Georgia last year Donald Trump turned his focus to a local official, showing supporters a video of Richard Barron, the Fulton County elections director.

"So, if you just take the crime of what those Democratic workers were doing," Trump told attendees, "that's ten times more than I need to win the state."

It was then that Barron started getting attacked in a deluge of voicemails.

"Hey, Rick," one voicemail said. "Two hundred and thirty four years ago, the founding caucasian fathers of America gave us the Second Amendment. Time's running out, Richard. We're coming after you and every motherfkr that stole this election with our Second Amendment, subpoenas be damned, you're going to be served lead, you fking enemy communist cockskr. You will be served lead."

Isn’t it lovely? Unlike those snowflake libtards who are tearing America apart!

“Florida School is Forcing Vaccinated Students to Quarantine for 30 Days so They Don’t Infect Unvaxxed Students.”

A Miami private school is forcing children to get vaccinated to quarantine for 30 days. The reason? The school believes the vaxxed students could spread serious infection to non-vaxxed students.

Parents of students from the Centner Academy received a letter which read, “if you are considering the vaccine for your Centner Academy student(s), we ask that you hold off until the Summer when there will be time for the potential transmission or shedding onto others to decrease.”

The letter continued, “Because of the potential impact on other students and our school community, vaccinated students will need to stay at home for 30 days post-vaccination for each dose and booster they receive and may return to school after 30 days as long as the student is healthy and symptom-free.”

When asked for comment by 7 News Miami, infectious Disease expert Aileen Marty said, “What happens 30 days after they get vaccinated? What kind of nonsense is this? Where did they get that? There’s nothing in the recommendations to that… they made that up. That’s science fiction, not even science fiction because it’s pure fiction.”

“Donald Trump hired paid actors to cheer for him at his campaign launch event in 2015 and yet, to this day, to my knowledge - and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong here - he has never ever been asked about it or had to directly comment on it.”

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on September 27, 2021:

“The biggest challenge to immigrants in 19th-century America came from the rise in a movement known as nativism. The movement was supported by white, American-born Protestants who believed the swelling tide of immigrants and, in particular, the rapid growth of Catholicism in the United States were harming the public welfare. Middle- and upper-class citizens felt the majority of European immigrants were uneducated and would not be able to contribute to American society.”

Sound familiar? Now we see trump and the magas continue this disgusting American tradition.

People coming to our border are disease ridden…? Give me a break! Look who’s talking, Covidiots!

And of course, your leader Trumpo, called them rapists and murderers.

Scalise said they had calves like watermelons from running drugs.

What is more my property than me?

And you care zero for my freedom. Hypocrits.

I would like to know if he is trying to chip you, and if so, why do you still support him?

Republicans trying to make a point about freedom are missing the boat.

All they’re saying is, “we’re free to not mask and vaxx, you still can’t have an abortion.”

Freedom is one sided, as with everything Republican.

It’s a pro life issue.

Just FYI....

My boss paid everyone who came to work for us $18.00 an hour.

We’re working a full hotel on half staff.....every single one of us does every job.

Turns out, we have had the best July ever.

And, our staff works harder and better because they see a good paycheck, not a nothingburger, after busting your butt all week.

Who knows what will be in the future, but it makes me happy to see our crew happy!

I hope we don’t go backwards. Covid has been a learning experience in a lot of ways.

Oh, and I’m a great gramma today!!!!!!!

Getting rid of these Nazis is now paramount.

“Just three states are now driving the pandemic in the United States, as the divide between vaccinated and unvaccinated regions of the country becomes ever more stark, as the more transmissible Delta variant of the coronavirus spreads.

Forty percent of all new cases this week have been recorded in Florida, Texas and Missouri.”

What is it going to take?

Maga may well wipe out a huge population of Americans, single handedly.

You want to die, that’s on you. I don’t! And how can you stay the eff away from me and my family?

When I think of all the thought Kontrol we are subject to, it boggles the mind.

Pledge of allegiance….it’s juvenile!

Reciting the Lord’s Prayer at school…..indoctrination!

I had to do both those things every day.

This is the one time I was with trump

https://youtu.be/LN3fWF9nD_Y

How we mindlessly follow orders…..it’s scary!

How about we live up to the promise, rather than dot all the little “this is what you have to do” I’s?

Good little citizens, or free people living up to the standards we set?

WE have a long way to go.

Lakota Man:

You really haven’t figured it out yet? Really?

It’s the racism, stupid. All of it.

We are here to form a more perfect Union. We say all men are created equal, we say liberty and justice for all. And then we do this.

https://theintercept.com/2021/06/04/georgia-racism...

We must get to the root of the sickness to heal. Covering with more bandaids won’t help. Pretending it was no big deal won’t help.

It’s the basic principle and the basic hypocrisy. It’s like you telling me you’re all about freedom, but forcing me to carry a pregnancy to term whether I want to or not.

And you don’t even SEE it!

Racism must be atoned for. Period.

Then maybe the floodgates will open.

Lot of people were treated unAmerican in America. And let’s not even start on the origins......like oh my god.

If we want to BE America, we have to live the words!

Oh yes, they mock you for masks, too. Did you see the story of a woman who drove her car through a bunch of people screaming “no masks”...?

Those responsible for this horrible psy op on America will pay....one way or another....in this life or the next.

Bank on it.

Geee, what could have caused the decrease in deaths.....was it vitamin d? Excercise? Eating right? Fresh air? Or was it THE VACCINE?

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E1MSM3YUYAQqxIL?format...

Btw, “the virus was created in Wuhan lab” people.....rightwing media parroters....why Wuhan? Why not Fort Deitrick? There was a cluster of respiratory deaths in oct of 2019 in Maryland, which they blamed on vaping.....was it Covid? Did it leak from the fort Deitrick lab? Was it America’s fault, not China?

Or does that not fit your agenda?

Like the claim the election was stolen in 2016 you totally dismiss, don’t you?

So why should anyone care about your boohooing about 2020?

God, I miss balanced forums. It’s all Trumpees now, in one form or another.

And 71% of this country approves of Biden’s job.

Why is hubpages so slanted and biased? And why does it represent the 18% trump fascists? Why?
