So this is Amerika

I wrote this commentary in 2007, during the throes of the Bush Administration. It is, unfortunately, as appropriate today as it was 4 years ago.

We the People are in serious trouble if we can't get beyond our media-manufactured differences and take our country back. 


In 1987 the mini-series Amerika aired on ABC amid much hype and controversy and then died a quick death. In 1995 there was a limited release on VHS. While the premise of the mini-series was to show the United States 10 years after a take-over by the Soviets, the story is hauntingly familiar to the America [Amerika] we are living in now.

For the most part, apathetic Americans let the coup progress with no resistance, resulting in an occupied America.
