You know, what I’m really tired of is everything being commodified -everything being marketable.
I’m tired of the husksters and poverty pimps who enriched themselves at the expense of the nations -I’m tired of hearing them drone on about “their people”, tradition, which they know nothing about, and requires ghostwriters when they foist another book off on the public.
I’m tired of the cowboy boots, hats, and suits, the leather braids tenuously attached to what hair remains, and the entire show me the money attitude.
I’m tired of the sycophants who urinate all over themselves at the mere mention of their heroes name- I’m tired of the wannabes who enable them, who think liars, thieves, rapists, and murderers are a reflection of the people to be glorified.
I’m tired of those in the generation(s) that followed jockeying for position to ascend to the throne when they pass on- wannabes in their own right.
Look around the net, they’re easy enough to find-they’re the ones hoisting or posing in front of AIM banners-they’re the ones with AIM, Peltier, and to lesser extent Graham paraphenalia plastered around their site.
They are also the ones that avoid any discussion about Annie or Ray-though they have no problem with a photo in an attempt to legitimize themselves.
They are the ones who wail the loudest and accuse any who call them to task feds, pigs, and snitches-what a pitiful lot they truly are, what an unnecessary burden.
I’m tired of important issues like pe sla being co opted by AIM or associated with them as though they are some kind of damn corporate sponsor or clearing house, and tired of those who invite them in.
At this point I’m becoming a little tired of LRI and Iron Eyes Esq. who apparently wants to be in the run off for the AIM throne. Wonder if the Lakota Pope and his College of Cardinals have already made a determination?
I’ve heard the phrase the age of innocence-I’m not sure what era that refers to but it surely isn’t this one. This is the age of greed, avarice, and deception-ignorance is the hallmark.
