For one hundred years after we fought the Civil War, a century after over 600,000 soldiers died in a cause to proclaim that a man cannot enslave another, Blacks were beaten, abused, hung by the neck in trees, buried in oil barrels at the bottom of a river, denied the right to vote, forced to endure separate bathrooms and water fountains, denied their place at a drug store soda fountain counter, America turned a deaf ear and looked away as folks were denied their personal liberties. You see, they weren't Black...and no one was coming for them.
In the 1940's Adolph Hitler exterminated 7 million Jews. Americans knew about it within the first year, after a million had already been sent to the ovens, and after Himler was turning out lamp shades made out of human Jewish skin. And America turned away and denied it was happening, even as a boatload of refugees docked on our shores, told of the ongoing Holocaust and were turned away from our shores, denied refuge from the most vile of human tragedies. But you weren't Jewish...and no one was coming for you.
In the early 1950's anyone who had, rightly or not, believed that Karl Marx might have written a truth or two in "Das Capital", anyone who had attended a communist gathering between 1930 and 1950, were hauled before a Congressional committee and crucified on the cross of a demigod named McCarthy. But, because you hadn't attended, and you weren't a Communist, you turned your head as thousands of Americans were blacklisted and denied employment because they had once read a commie pamphlet in some American reading room. After all, no one was coming for you.
And when big government outlawed smoking everywhere except your home and your car, when they banned it on beaches and city parks and even on city sidewalks you didn't raise your voice because you weren't a smoker...and they weren't coming for you.
And when big government was allowed to force you to buy a service, as with Obamacare, as the Supreme Court allowed the government to change their Obamacare argument from a fee base mandate to a tax, you didn't say much because you didn't understand the complexities of it, so you rolled over and called the only ones fighting this assault on our Constitutional liberties "TEA-BAGGERS". And since you were getting care for free, or since government was giving you a subsidy to pay for yours, you said to hell with all those who had to pay higher premiums to pay for yours...and, after all, no one was coming after you.
So a couple of weeks ago the World Obesity Federation And Consumers International, an adjunct organization feeding off the United Nations, met to set new rules and new taxes on foods that make you fat. Well attended by Obama's army of "czars" the two organizations are working toward making world governments impose strict new guidelines on the amount of sugar and salt in our food products. They also want the industrialized nations to impose heavy taxes on fast foods and sugary drinks and snacks. (Michelle Obama seems to be leading the way as she has worked to impose brown rice and broccoli lunches in our public schools.) Finally, like those black lung pictures on cigarette packs, both the WOF and CI are demanding that pictures of obese people and pictures of diabetes driven foot and leg amputations be prominently shown on fast food wrappers and bags. That way, when you accede to paying an exorbitant "punitive tax" for that hamburger and fries, you'll know why you're paying it!
Both organizations are driven toward extending the lives of the world's citizens...so that they can be transformed into automatons at the beck and call of some national and world bureaucrat. No doubt, citizen apathy toward the protection of personal liberties (including the right to die sick) will result in drone monitoring of every conceivable human behavior and we'll all learn exactly what's expected of us.
And there will be no one left to fight...as they finally come for you.
