Tube flag burningROCK ON STANDING!

This morning Tubularsock arose with this on his mind. It is something so obvious that you’d think at first, “why is it so profound?”

When we came to these shores, and Tubularsock is using “the we” in the pejorative sense here, we came as “an advanced” civilization and looked upon the indigenous peoples as “lessor than”. Something to destroy, control, “educate” and to “save” in God’s name.

And, by jove, with all the destruction our civilization has brought forth onto the indigenous peoples WE still haven’t even learned their basic teaching. WE, the more advanced, the more sophisticated, the more educated missed a fundamental principle to life itself.

How has this transpired?

Well, Tubularsock doesn’t have all day to hash this over really. And you already know. After all, many of you have allowed the education system once again to fill your small children’s minds with that fucking Thanksgiving bullshit AGAIN!

So exactly what about, “WE came and brutally slaughtered “the Indians” and took there shit”, is so difficult to explain to our kids before we gather around with our dysfunctional families in our dysfunctional society and hack up a dead turkey carcass on our dining room table? Seems like a pretty easy thing to do but WE DON’T.

Now the other day Tubularsock happened to see an interview where President Step-en-Fetch-It responded to this young journalist’s questions about WHAT is the “President” doing about the Standing Rock Sioux pipeline protest. And this gutless wonder we call a president says he’s “monitoring the situation”.

Now exactly what is there to be “monitoring”? And at what point did the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers come up with an oil pipeline that would run through ancient burial grounds of the Sioux and run along and UNDER major water sources?

Which brings us back to where we started. At what point did WE as a civilization FORGET that you don’t foul your water supply?

NO, REALLY. THINK ON IT!
