US Marine Speaks Against Police Brutality “1 Marine vs 30 Cops” ~ Big Noise News
“We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore…” is a famous statement from a move made during a bygone era where it was predicted that cooperate greed would cause such separation between the classes that regular middle class Americans would have to suffer through extreme poverty, neglect and brutality. Have we reached the horizon for such an existence within our own country today, the good old U.S. of A? Obviously we live in a time where corporations have become so monstrous and manipulative that they don’t really care about what we think, their number one concern is their bottom line… it’s time to take it back!
Americans have recently hit the streets in record numbers, united and unified on the message that Wall Street and corporate America have failed us, over the past 50 years greedy executives and corporate policies have steadily moved in the direction that keeps their pockets fat and our pockets in “rabbit ear” status. More Americans are currently homeless or unemployed then we’ve ever seen in recent history, megalithic companies are creating monopolies and forcing independent businesses out in the cold.
Right here in the Silicon Valley we see criminal activity where corporate executives have been allowed to outsource all the hi-tech jobs that could be generating revenue here in our community. Somehow government officials have turned a blind eye while the criminal activities continue. Look what just happened to “Solyndra” in Fremont, CA – 500 million dollars and those criminals were actually allowed to claim the 5th, let me or you try to steel 500 thousand dollars and watch how quickly they throw the book at us, my god!
Every corner in our community you’re seeing the takeover – Target, Wall Mart, Home Depot, Lowes, Star Bucks, Chase, B of A, Apple, Verizon, AT&T and the list goes on-and-on… as citizens of this great country we have to hit em where it counts, in the pocket book, at the bottom line. It’s time for us to boycott these behemoth greedy bastards, they don’t care nothing about us. Shop at your local mom-and-pop stores for everything, shut down that unnecessary cell service, write your local congress-folks and company executives, give them a piece of your mind. Let them know we care about our community and country!!!
Ever since the corporate media outlets have been promoting shows like Cops, The First 48, Rookies, K9 Cops, Lockdown and other such shows police in our community have gone from a “protect-and-serve” mentality to a “I’m-the-man” mentality. Most police no longer have any respect for their community and with recent profiling, shooting, killing, brutality and community thefts we find that the ones who are suppose to protect us are under marching orders from the ones who want to undermine our existence.
