Soon, The Only Ones Not In Jail Will Be The Jailers
Witches and Saints

'Stand with your back to the Roasting Root
Jailer lights the fire with a tall jack boot
Never get a chance to speak your side of it is moot
Prepare to meet your fate at the Roasting Root'
December 15, 2017 "Information Clearing House" -As another one bites the dust, and with others being added to the list of the accused by the hour, one cannot help but marvel at the ability of society to break down as rapidly as embers from a Salem fire.
It is obvious that the current climate of social fear being wrought across 2017 America is at a level not seen since 1939 Germany and has de-evolved into nothing more than a witch hunt. For instance, how many saints can you name? Saint Francis, my favorite. Saint Joseph, like the aspirin for children, Sant Bonaventure, I think that's a school or an amusement park... But really if you can name them on one hand you may be a saint yourself.
Never Miss Another Story
But now how many are not saints? All the
rest of us, I would say! We are, by the
millions, wickedly dirty little creatures
with many-a-skeleton in our closets. And
don't tell me you didn't. You know what you
did. Lying is only lying to yourself,
because we don't really care- we'll likely
get to you eventually, anyway.
So here we are, attacking, accusing, ruining lives and careers (and don't misunderstand me, some of these bastards deserve it), but what is really happening here is a breakdown of society, a horrible and unhealthy climate of fear of being the next to have our shirt stripped from our back, revealing 'the mark' that will send us to the burning stake.
And it is all disproportionately affecting the left end of the political spectrum, with all of us winding up the losers. And then there's the role of money. A comedian whips it out in front of a couple of colleagues and flogs the mule, and heads to the gallows, while another, wealthier comedian known to be a serial rapist, drugged and molested untold numbers of women over the course of a career only to return them home, soiled, to their families -along with money for a car or college- and still he walks free, due to huge money and influence.
But one thing is to be sure, with the escalating witch hunt now racing across the social fabric of America, soon, the only ones not in jail will be the jailers. It is easily enough done; government just keeps on collecting all manor of information, every thing about every one. All to be used one day when the process of social data mining finally stops at the station of our own little town, then to be pored over until the jailers find something, anything, they can use. And then you are denounced, more people come forward, and you are tarred, feathered, tied to the roasting root and burned. And on to the next.
