When it does arrive in full force, oh the havoc it will wreck..
As the sentry keeps looking out into the horizon at the same open roads or clumps of trees while the clock tick-tocks into endless repetition of silence, the more draining the exercise becomes
Worse, the more utterly Lazy and Complacent those the sentry is trying to protect become.
And annoyingly that's the position A&G has sometimes been forced into.
It has been 6.5 yrs from Lehman Brothers and the stock collapse and even the economically poorest dum-dums have moved on..
A&G has been around for over 5 yrs trying to warn people it is all illusion
It doesn't matter to people that more than 50% of all American workers bring home LESS than $30k annually or after adjusting for inflation, median household income has fallen by nearly $5,000 since 2007
Very few to none are concerned that according to the U.S. Department of Education, 33% of all Americans with student loans are currently behind on their student loan debt repayments or the rate of home ownership in the U.S. has been declining for seven years in a row, and it is now the lowest that it has been in 20 years.
Its just harder and harder to get people to shake the Complacency drug.
One great difficulty it seems is getting people to stop accepting the Systemic Lie that 'its their fault' when prices go up while wages freeze or decrease.
There should be an ultimate raging against the machine, community grass-roots organizing and putting the continually corrupt Federal government on notice via loud and disruptive displays that their post-crash business as usual approach to help banks and corporations and super-wealthy was no longer to be tolerated.
That's one thing we give credit to Blacks.. Often their rage is misguided but unlike middle-class comfortable whitey, they have a very short fuse on certain things and many of them when provoked are not afraid to confront the enemy and go toe to toe, blow for blow..
Complacency is also an extension of fear, namely of losing 'stuff'
Or one's freedom.
Most people don't realize prison is a state of mind more than a physical reality. Confinement among criminals is no fun but in honesty 'prison' is also being married with children and a dead-end job and bills up the nose; utterly trapped by the trappings of adulthood.

So that means in a span of 5 years, 2 months, the Dow has increased by nearly Triple!
Meanwhile the first time the Dow ever surpassed the 1,000 mark in our nation's history was sometime in 1981.
And we all know why.. And some of us are disgusted and some are happy because maybe they own 20 shares in Apple or McDonald's
It reminds us of Hurricane Katrina.
The blacks and liberals were so angry at President Bush and FEMA for what they perceived to be inadequate response to the devastation, and yet..
In the New Orleans area and nationally via the Weather Channel, the people of Louisiana and the Gulf region were warned of a massive hurricane directly striking their area for about a week prior to the event..
And only in the last 48 hours did people start to take things serious and in a massive rush went to buy supplies and clog the interstates trying to escape
The people of the Gulf Region and "Chocolate City" as New Orleans' now imprisoned but then mayor described, got what they deserved..
They were Complacent.
It makes it much easier to control the populace while the nation's wealth is stolen into a select few..
We used to be the USA.. Now we are the CSA..
The Complacent States of America
