During my absence, the United States has drifted deeper into a Fascist Oligarchy. Watching the news from there is both embarrassing and laughable. It is amazing how most citizens of the US have no clue about the rest of the world and world history. They are so busy wallowing in their own shit that they have lost perspective. At the hands of the corporate media...(NO....THERE IS NO LIBERAL MEDIA!).....the population has been lulled into complacency and impotency.
