"There are two futures, the future of desire and the future of fate, and man's reason has never learnt to separate them. Desire, the strongest thing in the world, is itself all future, and it is not for nothing that in all the religions the motive is always forwards to an endless futurity of bliss or annihilation. Now that religion gives place to science the paradisaical future of the soul fades before the Utopian future of the species, and still the future rules. But always there is, on the other side, destiny, that which inevitably will happen, a future here concerned not as the other was with man and his desires, but blindly and inexorably with the whole universe of space and time. The Buddhist seeks to escape from the Wheel of Life and Death, the Christian passes through them in the faith of another world to come, the modern reformer, as unrealistic but less imaginative, demands his chosen future in this world of men."--J.D. Bernal

Somewhere lost in the rockets red glare and the bombs bursting in air is a voice trying to rise above the pop and bombastic cadence of shock and awe. The voice is a voice of warning. It is voice that demands attention more now than it ever has.

It demands that we understand fully the meaning of the bombs bursting and landing on their intended targets. Bombs of today are not the same bombs that were seen in the skies of 1814 when a young lawyer named Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner.

The bombs of today are either dropped from planes or strapped on to terrorists. They are brought in under the nose of security, and are small enough to fit in a shoe. They can be atomic, bacteriological, or chemical and they are capable of devastating wide areas. There are also other bombs used that can kill thousands of people leaving the buildings in tact making virtual ghost towns in their wake.

Bombs today can destroy cities in the same way a runaway bull can destroy a china shop.

When we see the devastation of one bomb, from Hiroshima to the events in Oklahoma City we recognize the inevitability of what our fate might be if we continue to wage war in the world.

If we are not fully living in the apocalypse today, then the previews are just starting. Each preview is a warm up act for the big feature. The problem is the fate in this theater is not optional. You canít walk out on your own reality and you canít escape the price you will have to pay to watch "clockwork orange" style the horrific aftermath of the new bombs bursting, the rockets red glaring, and the fleshís red ripping.

It is the apocalyptic roller coaster ride. The last drop goes into nothingness and the final stop is annihilation. The fourth of July is a celebration of independence from our masters. Our founding fathers felt enslaved by over taxation, forced religious belief, and tyrannical leadership.

Over the nearly 224 years the stories about their intentions have changed and the Fourth of July has gone full circle. It has become another "war holiday" so declared by another mad king named George who imposes many of the same things as the British version of the 18th century.

A man who takes a perverse pleasure in apocalyptic views and talks candidly about history being forgotten because many are about to die in the foreseeable future.

Do we all want to see our America emptied? Do we secretly have this morbid curiosity about how our world will meet its end? It is all lost in the bombs bursting and the Rockets red glare.

Most of our major cities are already becoming ghosts, and their haunting future waits in an America that has already allowed its leaders to make them all potential Ground Zeroes.

The people in them are unaware that they will also be ghosts that will come back to look at how we had heaven on earth and how it was allowed to pass away like grains of sand in a light wind.

In a hypothetical exercise we imagine an American morning sometime in the not too distant future. The alarm clocks go off in every household. The automatic coffee maker makes a fresh pot of coffee. The sprinkler systems turn on and bring water to the thirsty grass before the sun scorches it with the summer heat.

The traffic lights blink red yellow and green.

The American City comes alive and every machine turns on automatically and unfortunately no one is there to turn them off.

In our imagination we realize that in our minds eye we see the blighted metropolis still living but with one component missing, human life.

In our vision we see a place devoid of traffic. Gone are the people filing in and out of buses. There is no shove or uproar of human traffic and the only sound that can be heard is the crackling of papers blowing about in the dust.

This future fades away and we come back to the present and realize that perhaps there may be time to change the outcome. That is if we truly desire a bright and peaceful outcome.

This vision of absolute Ground Zero is a bleak reminder of what can be and what may be the only true peace that our leaders want. They create a lasting peace where everyone is silenced through widespread death and destruction. It will be a permanent peace where the earth will be indifferent to mankindís disappearance. It is beautiful and disturbing all at the same time. Paradise that was once lost can be regained without the interference of mankind.

"There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground,
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;

And frogs in the pools singing at night,
And wild plum trees in tremulous white;

Robins will wear their feathery fire,
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;

And not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it is done.

Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree,
If mankind perished utterly;

And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn
Would scarcely know that we were gone." -- Sara Teasdale

In the efforts to bring about a flawed "New World Order", our leaders tell us that peace is only achieved through an all out war. The purpose of the war is to eliminate the bad people of the world.

The humans all have their own idea of what is harming the world. The straights say itís the Gays. The Vegans say it is the meat eaters. The whites say itís the blacks. The Jews say its Palestine. The Protestants say itís the Catholics and everyone has something against the Pagans.

America seems to have developed some ghoulish desire for all of the people on the planet to go away that are not of the same mindset. They can all die so that we can live. They have no right to breathe our same air because they are below us.

We are better than they are and they hate us because we are better. America has developed these ideas because those who we look towards for guidance encourage these destructive thoughts and behaviors.

The damaging and most frightening philosophy that has been delivered by our self appointed shepherds is that war is the only way to true and everlasting peace.

The Necropolis will be "absolute Ground Zero" left behind for those who are worthy to rebuild it into the new Eden. That is if anyone at all is left to rebuild it.

In our paranoid quest for true and lasting security we remain in denial when it comes to an accidental ending of our world by negligent efforts to "protect" us from some unseen enemy.

The end can come from some fatal lack of communication, or perhaps a failure to act on warnings of an impending disaster.

While the fathers of homeland security warn us of suicide bombers and dirty bombs, we ignore the tightrope we walk on as we orbit the sun and forget that the earth is a pebble in a very turbulent ocean.

We have become arrogant almost to the point of mental illness. We have developed what I'd like to call "Terminal Americancer" where the United States will be consumed by the keen invitations to make our various castles in the air.

It seems that we have been convinced to let our reptilian brain rule our bodies. Our spiritual and nurturing nature has been replaced by the need to conquer and win at any cost.

It is fashionable to have an uncaring predatory nature. Our leaders encourage it and the stupid and mentally corrupt are cock sure that the path we are on is the right one. It is the intelligent American that has his doubts.

Only the ignorant challenge the patriotism of Americans who question. The ignorant dismiss new points of view and some of the uncomfortable truths that need to be considered in order to preserve life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

It is the ignorant that allow bumper sticker patriotism to supplant long suffering for freedom. It is the ignorant that deliver preemptive death when they don't feel good about their embarrassing failure at engendering the confidence of the republic.

Only the intelligent know that true patriotism includes free speech, separation of church and state, the right to bear arms, and the responsibility of revealing the enemies that exist that are both foreign and domestic. It is the intelligent American that knows that patriotism granted to any government or any administration is given only when those in power deserve it.

Recently there was a study conducted by the Journal of the American Medical Association that graced the back pages of the news. It is obvious as to why the study was buried underneath the horrific blood and circuses that included the various beheadings, court hearings, and JayLo's wedding.

The study reported that The United States seems to have more people in it that are mentally ill. The study led by a Harvard Medical School researcher, found evidence of mental problems in 26.4% of people in the United States, versus, for example, 8.2% of people in Italy.

This means that a country that considers itself the leaders of the free world has one quarter of its population mentally stunted and incapable of understanding what it means to be free.

Let us add this to the many Americans who do not understand American history, or World history or care to research anything that has been told to them by the major media.

This is both disconcerting and comforting at the same time.

It is comforting because now I am beginning to realize why so many vocal Americans like Anne Coulter, Rush Limbaugh , Sean Hannity and Michael savage continue to march lock step behind a mentally ill President and his equally psychotic administration.

It also explains how the left have also become irresponsible by claiming that "anyone but Bush" will solve their problems in the coming election. They fail to realize that there is no alternative. It may be comforting to you to hear that the vocal supporters of this failed administration could very well be the mentally ill and those that are fully capable of demonstrating intelligence but forfeit their chance for the promises of riches and prestige.

Now the disconcerting part is that we realize that the inmates are running the asylum. The inmates don't like the system now, they didn't like it then, and probability dictates that they won't like it in the future.

This will apply even if the left wing savior John Kerry ends up moving into the Whitehouse after the November election. I attempted to get into a theater to see the movie Fahrenheit 911 and was greeted by a vanguard of clipboard patriots asking if I am registered to vote and if I was, I should be voting for Kerry.

I have been criticized for saying that we should vote for none of the above until we have a serious attempt at election reform. As the new election approaches I say it all over again.

Even John Kerry supports my belief because his record shows that even he believes in selective voting.

He believes that the basic responsibility of the government is to provide for the common defense and this includes the continued support of "Homeland Security." This is peculiar considering he was a no show when it came time to vote for the provisions of Homeland security.

So does this mean he says he supports it to gain support from the ignorant who are for the new Gestapo and then flees when it comes time to put his vote in the hat?

He can talk all he wants but his actions speak louder than words.

He literally says nothing, and he does nothing to give us an indication as to what he sees for the future. There is no vision in Kerry's America. Just hypothetical "feel good" messages that serve as a Hallmark card saying "Have safe and happy American apocalypse."

Kerry also blows the trumpet of terrorism in order to satisfy the mentally challenged Americans who have believed John Ashcroft and Tom Ridge's cries of wolf when statistically speaking, acts of terrorism have taken a drop according to the State Department.

There were 190 acts of international terrorism in 2003, a slight decrease from the 198 attacks that occurred in 2002, and a drop of 45 percent from the level in 2001 of 346 attacks. The figure in 2003 represents the lowest annual total of international terrorist attacks since 1969.

A total of 307 persons were killed in the attacks of 2003, far fewer than the 725 killed during 2002. A total of 1,593 persons were wounded in the attacks that occurred in 2003, down from 2,013 persons wounded the year before.

In 2003, the highest number of attacks (70) and the highest casualty count (159 persons dead and 951 wounded) occurred in Asia.

There were 82 anti-US attacks in 2003, which is up slightly from the 77 attacks the previous year, and represents a 62-percent decrease from the 219 attacks recorded in 2001."-- Released by the Office of the Coordinator for Counter terrorism April 29, 2004

These statistics are subject change no matter who is president because of the counter attack that is in the works. Several new reports indicate that intelligence once again is begging us to believe that patterns indicate conclusively to the grave threat of an imminent round of atomic-bacteriological-chemical terror attacks in the United States, The U.K., Canada, and possibly other nations.

These attacks could include nuclear detonations, radiological dirty bombs, poison gas and other chemical weapons, or biological agents, to be unleashed in such urban settings as New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC, Vancouver BC, or London. The goal of these operations would be to produce a worldwide shock several orders of magnitude greater than the original 9-11 attacks.

Regardless of who you want for President all evidence points to another coup d'etat that is being prepared in the United States. This coup has been in the works and will probably come about in the same way the bombings in Spain influenced the elections on March 11th, 2004. Which in an eerie coincidence happened 911 days after the attacks of September 11th, 2001.

The surprises that are in store for us will have a nation more fearful and more vulnerable. Once again this will all be for the purpose of reinforcing the ideology of open-ended war. The next attack will come with yet another surprise. This time the homeland gestapo will step up it's efforts by ruling under emergency provisions which will include the militarization of the police forces and the opening of the borders to foreign armies to aid in the curtailing of any rebellion against the people who feel that their liberty has been revoked.

Coup d'etat =Government held at gunpoint

A president that is being held at gunpoint will have to do whatever he is told. We have learned from the Presidency of Ronald Reagan that even men with the best of intentions can be forced into making decisions that are directed by a shadow government that wants to create a prison state and the eventuality of the urban war that will open the door to absolute Ground Zero.

The door that opens to the advent of the coming Necropolis.

This Fourth of July a decision has to be made by every American. You need to decide if your patriotism is rooted in the love of God and Country and the continued liberty of ourselves and our posterity?

Or is it rooted in continued dominance and hubris brought forth by a monolithic government that uses your emotional attachment to America as a tool for an excuse to lie and circumvent the effective processes of running a government that is for the people and by the people?

Your decision must somehow come despite the urge to lapse into an alcoholic haze at the kegger or when you burn your fingers while lighting your sparkler.

This Fourth of July we should all be thinking about how we as Americans can legally halt the continued idea of a unilateral global domination.

These thoughts are a part of the New World Order indoctrination provided by a small group of Unamerican criminals that have found their way into our Government and deserve trials similar to those who have destroyed other societies and other nations.

It is time to stop complaining about how bad things are and work toward a radical analysis that explains why these things have happened in the first place. It won't mean that the American experiment has failed, on the contrary it means that Americans are pulling out of their mental haze and are doing something to save the very foundation that feels as if it is wobbling.

The time for the powerful using fear to make you powerless has to end now. If you believe in America and if you are a true patriot you will not be hoodwinked into overreacting when terrorism rears its head again.

We all know that terrorism has been around for a long time. It is not new and it is not something that shouldn't draw Americans into reactionism that cloaks itself in bumper sticker patriotic urgency that causes division and regret.

It is best to fight against the current than to be swept away by it.

Happy Birthday America! I am patriotic to you always and to my government when they deserve it!
