Blue Angels Due to Be Grounded
Posted by Rev Billy on March 4 on Facebook: AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS WITH A FENCE DOWN THE MIDDLE: Our family reunion near Coronado Beach south of San Diego featured extremely low flights by military fighter-jets, helicopters, cargo planes... practicing landings to the north. I jogged up the beach to take a look. At a cyclone fence with threatening signs, then a second and third fence with robot-eyes up on poles - I gazed into the military camp. I expected barracks, a runway, etc. Instead I saw a big white hotel, young swimsuit clad couples in the surf, an 18-hole golf course. I saw the socialist utopia of Pentagon-life. The prosperous style which $700 Billion a year affords you. I stood there getting that the military world was very close to a carbon copy of the tourist world of my family's reunion. Militarism and tourism evolved into the same consumer's life. The Orwellian scary-thought is that both worlds now shape their citizen participants with the hypnotic bombardment of corporate marketing. The two populations risk death in different ways: the demoralizing series of meaningless illegal wars that a soldier faces is matched on the civilian side by psychos shooting school-kids, poisons in our food and miles of bleak super malls. The two Americas are being herded toward a single obedient personality by the mono-culture. Soon, the fence won't be necessary.
Posted by Rev Billy on March 4 on Facebook: Fabulous sermon fragment from the Los Angeles Sunday service with Exene Cervenka and the Triple Goddess Gospel Choir... "The person we called Father fucked us. Religion turned love into hate. Big Banks stole our homes and killed our climate. Patriotic feeling for our country became murder. Politicians replaced votes with dollars. Insurance coverage shrank with illness and disaster. The corporate class took an elevator up into a mirrored building and never returned. They talk to us from their desks in professional gibberish. The breakdown of consumer society is so complete that... "If we try to live an ordinary, healthy life we are asking for revolution. Let's accept this and - enjoy it! Revolujah! (Posted in celebration of the retreat of the Blue Angels -grounded for lack of funds.)
