The Manson Children and Obama
I recall the turbulence of days gone by. I was rather young when hippies were en vogue, but I was always fascinated by the free spirited nature of it all. Just my opinion, but I believe that the lure of living that so called carefree existence ended when Charlie Manson and his girls murdered Sharon Tate ( wife of film director Roman Polanski), and several others in a mansion located in the hills of California. The vision of a perfect life surrounded by beaches and temperate weather, stars and glamor, were nullified in a premeditated murdering spree replete with blood smeared walls and epithets of hate emblazoned throughout the house. Charlie Manson was not a member of a community, rather he was a drifter, floating through life surviving on cigarettes. However, Charlie ( who is still alive and eating three meals a day in the penitentiary) was an "organizer." With a personality that his followers would describe as "dynamic", he brainwashed a band of females into worshiping him as their idol and convincing them that he was their messiah. These girls, for they were really too young to be considered women, believed his every word, hoped to be his favorite, and changed their normal existences to accommodate his every whim. Some of you may recall the most infamous of the bunch, Squeaky Fromme, who till this day, visits Mr. Manson in prison. His power over her was so embellished in her psyche, that years after the Tate murders, Squeaky attempted to assassinate President Ford. Underestimating the power of suggestion from someone with evil intent is a dangerous move, and I have only illustrated one example of such.
Lest you P.U.M.A's have missed this latest hit video, allow me to enlighten you with a prime example of our newest brain washer extraordinaire, Barack Obama.
Frightening and reminiscent of some other notable "leaders" who perfected the art of persuasion and mind control. Jim Jones had HIS followers literally drink the kool aid and go to their deaths, whilst the Hitler youth fell prey to the propaganda of one of the most evil men in world history. I am not equating Obama with a murderer in the literal sense, but think about it....isn't losing ones free will the death of our very spirit?
Are we the ones we've been waiting for? I don't know about you, but George Orwell was a bit early in his prediction. Vote McPalin....change can be good, if WE decide what the change will be.
