actual vehicles that made the trips from Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Texas
and Oklahoma that so graphically depicted this massive migration of farmers
and ranchers from the Dustbowl in the Great Southwest to California in
the 1930's.Here's a quote that depicts their plight in Steinbeck's novel:
"The Grapes of Wrath."
- The book is out-of-print, but the story this tells us
about the true nature of how the 1930's in America was dealt with by those
that had become disenfranchised is priceless. Hollywood, typically, screwed
up the book and changed the ending: because the reality of the book was
far more devastating than Hollywood and their owners could ever allow the
public to understand, even that long ago.
- "The service station boy, in his white uniform,
seemed uneasy until the bill was paid. He said, "You people sure have
got nerve." Tom looked up from the map. "What you mean?"
- "Well, crossin' in a jalopy like this."
- "You been acrost?"
- "Sure plenty but not in no wreck like this."
Tom said, "If we broke down maybe somebody'd give us a han'."
- "Well maybe, but folks are kind of scared to stop
at night. I'd hate to be doing it. It takes more nerve than I've got."
- Tom grinned. "It don't take no nerve to do somepin
when there ain't nothin' else you can do. Well, thanks. We'll drag on."
And he got in the truck and moved away. The boy in white went into the
iron building where his helper labored over a book of bills. "Jesus
what a hard-looking outfit!"
- "Them Oakies? They're all hard-lookin'."
- Jesus I'd hate to start out in a jalopy like that."
- "Well you and me got sense. Them goddamn Oakies
got no sense and no feeling. They ain't human. A human being wouldn't live
like they do. A human being couldn't stand it to be so dirty and miserable.
They ain't a hell of lot better than gorillas."
- "Just the same I'm glad I ain't crossing the desert
in no Hudson Super-Six. She sounds like a threshing machine."
- Oklahoma was a place that the USA tried to overlook.
Oklahoma did not become a State until 1907. The name means Home of the
Red man. Prior to that time it was just called "Outlaw Territory,"
or the Badlands. It was home to Outlaws, Indians and in general a whole
group of individuals that wanted no part of organized anything. They had
their parcel of land; most of them were tenant farmers that owed the Bank
a mortgage. If the truth behind that place were known, the state shield
would have featured a Remington 30-30 on top of that olive branch because
'Oklahoma' was not a peaceful place!
- Before the Dustbowl came, most of them had the distinction
of having driven off every kind of social or political movement that had
come-round to try and sign them up. Socialists, Communists, political party
organizers, Union people; one an all were usually run-off with shotguns,
because those hard-scrabble people believed they had no-time for such trash
that were just trying to use them for their own purposes. The 'Elmer-Gantry's
were the exception. But even as poor as they were they were proud people;
determined people that wanted to make something for themselves and their
- To them their side-arms and shotguns were nothing more
than just tools that went into the trucks with the shovels and rakes and
whatever else they could take to California; and ironically they didn't
ever seem to consider them as weapons in the aggressive sense: Which was
how the California Highway Patrol chose to see it all.
- The Oakies came to understand that the PTB would never
let them in, and they didn't. But because the Oakies failed to confront
the cops and troops directly; they died by the tens of thousands, alone,
forgotten and spit upon openly, as just plain "trash." This is
what is about to happen to us and to our non-violent attitude toward today's
uniformed thugs; if we do not begin to confront our tormentors and turn
their powers against them.
- The Oakies were promised "work" in California
at a real wage. But when they got there: They found that there were hundreds
of people lined up for every so-called job; and there was no where else
to go, and so they died. Our "jobs" have been sent overseas;
and there are no replacement jobs coming-ever. What shall we do?
- We need to remove those people that exported those jobs,
and end the artificial rein of the BANKERS, beginning with our local branch
banks of the biggest banks in this country. That is something that we can
all participate in doing; and the effects of this action will be virtually-immediate.
Those banks that have loaned out a hundred dollars for every one they
have "on deposit" can never pay off their depositors, if everyone
demands their money back, in the same period of just a few days time.
- The current "thinking" is focused solely on
remaining non-violent and unarmed. Today the governor ofCalifornia announced
the end of the Open-Carry laws in California; just like the Highway Patrol
of Dustbowl days he's afraid of those gun-owners that might cause problems
for the illegal-police-state that he is currently running. (1)
- But the rest of this nation is still armed and dangerous
to the criminals in government; as we should be. That's why the Second
Amendment is in the Constitution (That would be The Constitution for theConstitutional
Republic and not the one written by USI).
- But here in California we have an answer for those that
want to take this Republic back, peacefully. We have the Big-Three Witches
that in theory "REPRESENT US." That would be Senator Diane Feinstein,
Senator Barbara Boxer and of course that legendary heroine of the people
Nancy Pelosi, my own personal Representative in the US House of Representatives.
These three witches have come down to us through history. "Shakespeare's
witches are prophetesses who hail the General Macbeth early in the play
with predictions of his rise as king. Upon committing regicide and being
seated on the throne of Scotland, Macbeth hears the trio deliver ambiguous
prophecies threatening his downfall. The witches' dark and contradictory
natures, their "filthy" trappings and activities, as well as
their intercourse with the supernatural all set an ominous tone for the
- Just imagine how safe we will all be when the big-three-witches-of
California confront the New World Order and demand that the PTW dissolve
themselves and end their police-state tactics? I don't think I'll hold-my-breath
on that one.
- We have seen what happens to any cause in this place
when it fails to confront the real problems we face, as a people. A public-driven
resistance cannot be mounted by organizing from within the ranks of those
that have made millions from the current slave-state we're living in. If
America is not going to repeat the disaster that the Oakies faced and lost:
then we need to do something DIFFERENT this time. We must grow a backbone
and fight these traitors where they live; or else we shall all just be
like these completely docile "folks" that are giving protest
a very bad name! This is NOT a protest this is a DECLARATION OF UNCONDITIONAL
SURRENDER! The man being so "honored," John Lewis was effectively
SILENCED by this ridiculous "PROTEST!" (3)
- The current effort by several different political parties
to capture and divert the OCCUPATION forces in and around Wall Street are
being infiltrated and coerced into being used by the same forces that brought
us all into this quagmire that will kill us if we do not begin to take
back the spontaneous reactions of the people who are indeed outraged at
what life in this country has become. You don't NEED organization to go
to your own branch of America's largest banks and just close your account
tomorrow: B of A has one out of every two depositors in this country: If
those account holders withdrew all their money, or tried to, that bank
whose stock is below $5 would collapse, as indeed it should.
- The public could then use the existing banks that did
not buy-into the housing bubble, or the any of the great BAILOUTS, to begin
rebuilding this nation through reconstruction one infrastructure at a time;
while the people go about the business of finding and prosecuting all the
outlaws that have looted this country-blind over the last forty years.
Here's a major topic that needs to be followed up on too, because this
is SO LONG OVERDUE: GLOBALLY. (3)
- I'm an Oakie, and proud of it! But I do not plan to repeat
what so many Oakies did in the 1930's I plan to fight this to the
end. What about you will you passively chose to stop raising your voices
and declaring your outrage, or will you allow idiots to tell you to just
raise your fingers and "wiggle them" if you approve of the rote
speeches being made? Last chance people: Will you take this treatment in
your community, or at your branch bank, in your hometown-or will you chose
to SURRENDER UNCONDITIONALLY like those fools inAtlanta chose to do?
- Have we become just another "Nation of Oakies"
or are we the Americans we profess to be!
