Episode 113, American Tyranny--Soft Now, Hard When?


Many people would deny that there is tyranny today in America. And with good reason.

Why you can watch any TV show you like. You can go to MacDonalds, Burger King, or Popeyes, it's your choice. Comfort fit or slim fit when it comes to blue jeans too. You see, the US of A ain't no one-size-fits-all third-world Hell hole, no sir.

You can even pick which NFL team you like, and you can wear their jersey with pride. Well as long as you avoid them hostile home crowds.

America is just the swellest country on Earth. Everyone knows that.

Oh sure, you have to pay taxes, or you'll go to jail. And some of those taxes, heck, maybe a lot of them, pay for stuff you maybe don't think is such a good idea, and might even someday bankrupt the country, put your kids through the wringer, and all that. But whaddya gonna do? You can't fight city hall.

Besides, neighbor Jones started talkin' bad about the government the other day, and pretty soon those black Suburbans showed up, and then we found out he'd been hanging out with a dome-ess-tick terrorist group. Shocked the heck out of me to hear he was a terrorist. Won't be seein' him around here no more. Good riddance.

Come to think of it, I haven't heard from Uncle Fred in a while. Hope he hasn't been shootin' his mouth off again.

What's that? One of them black Suburban fellers just pulled up out front? No sir, I ain't got any guns, not a one. Well, no, I guess I don't mind if you have a look around. No, that ain't my revolver--you must have put it--now just you wait a minute! I ain't done nothin' wrong! Let go of me! I'm an American!

  1. Hi Pete,

    Great cast.

    Some of your projections sound a lot like the book "Enemies Foreign and Domestic" by Matt Bracken. The book is mediocre, but the scenario is all too plausible.

    I recently read a speech by Russell Means called "Freedom to be Responsible", and thought it might make good source material for your podcast.

    Keep up the good work, and Merry Christmas!
