You lied, America Died

I can't get this song out of my head. Maybe it's because it so aptly describes the action of the overseers and it sounds great too.

From the folks who brought you pentagon strike and the signs of the times

You lied words & music by Signs of the Times

You told the world Saddam had chemical bombs
To kill us all in our homes, on our farms
You said he sent his men into the heavens
big planes crashing down, September 11

You lied, You lied,
People died, When Bush lied
I've got some questions, wipe that smirk off your face
Betraying your people, that's a real disgrace
See I'm having a hard time finding that plane
you said hit the Pentagon, bursting into flames
Vapourising the aircraft, didn't leave no remains
But the bodies appear not to burn quite the same
More lies Yeah, yeah, more lies
America died, When Bush lied
And talk about mir'cles, did you see how they fell,
the three towers in New York, those charges worked well
Flattened out in a straight line, just like it was planned
Did you think we were so stupid that we wouldn't understand
And it's a pity about the folks there on Flight 93,
Just as they took back control, you blew them to smithereens
You lied, You lied
Heroes died, when Bush lied
You say Osama is living in a place you have traced
But you don't go and get him, it seems such a waste
Could it be it's because he's still one of your men
A C-I-A asset just like he was then
He endorsed your campaign in a last minute pitch
Is he just one more man who has gotten quite rich
From your lies, Your lies
Freedom died, from your lies
How about those Israelis dancing to their success,
On the rooftops of Jersey, they created a mess
So you sent them back home with a slap on the wrist
Told the cops not to bother, 'cause they don't exist
It's a lie, You lied
Justice died, when you lied
Now people are dying through your crimes in Iraq
You've killed more than Saddam, though you don't care to keep track
Cause they're only some Arabs in a faraway land
That Yahweh has promised to his chosen band
While Sharon and his cronies pull on your strings
When he opens his mouth your whole government sings
His lies, His lies
Palestinians die, With Bush lies
Next time you talk to your God, I've got a question for him
What side is he on or does it change on a whim'
There's a whole lot of people, suff'rin here in his name
What kind of pyscho is he that he's playing this game
It sounds more like the devil is guiding your hand
Destruction and death are the plagues of the land
of your lies, your lies
Children die, When Bush lies
You see, Mr President, there's something amiss
Two elections you lost, but you overcame this
By rigging the vote, not counting the blacks
You've ensured two full terms, the dry drunk is back
And now they're changing the laws to get you a third
The brown shirts are charging at the front of the herd
of your lies, your lies
Democracy dies, When Bush lies
The question remains what can we do about this
Most people refuse to consider this list
They're lost in illusion, can't recognise proof
so we offer this song to all who stand for the truth
No more lies, No more lies
Must we all die, Because of your lies
No more lies, No more lies
Must we all die, Because of your lies
Your lies...

oh say can you see

Following my own advice to learn about brain and behavior, I started searching for something to explain the actions of the people we have in power. The state we find ourselves in this fourth of july can't possibly be due to run of the mill greed. I searched various sources on brain and behavior research to see if the actions of our leaders today is in anyway DSM-IV classifiable.

Study after study shows that the behaviors exhibited by our leaders are similar to those exhibited by a certain class of people-narcissistic psychopaths. I also found an interesting link on Laura Knight Jadczyk's site about a narcissistic, psychopathic kid who killed his grandparents. Jadczyk also has pages upon pages devoted to the topic of psychopathy. Diminishing freedom for most while wealth increases for a select few reminds me of how little we have to celebrate. Could "the few" that are leading us today be mostly psychopaths? If you don't know read on.

As I research psychopaths, I can see how important it is to have some knowledge about such people. We must know what we are dealing with if we want to avoid further victimization by people of the lie as Dr. M Scott Peck called them.

According to the linked article on psychopaths;

They are manipulative, confrontational, show a lack of empathy and are pre-occupied with success, power, brilliance, ideal love and beauty.

When you read the research below which is just one of many, which formerly alcoholic leader do you think of?

Alcoholism may therefore be part of a spectrum of disinhibitory psychopathy which is characterized by reduced central serotonergic activity, and has a familial or genetic component.
Of not then consider Brian Blackwell in a different light as the article proposed

....Yet imagine for a moment that Brian Blackwell was the CEO of a corporation or a member of the government of one of the world's most powerful nations. In such a case, he would be in a much better position to not only cover up his crime, but to cover up the fact that he was a psychopath. Armed with access to a controlled press and with a national security apparatus at his beck and call, he could commit the most heinous crimes on a massive scale and still convince most of the world that he was an good and decent individual.
Oh say can you see.....
