Just two quick things here, the press is saying the “economy” is recovering and they base this off two numbers, first they say unemployment is down. Well that is total BS and here is why, I have no job, yet I have run out of unemployment benefits, so as far as our government is concerned I am no longer unemployed! That is some Ass Backwards thinking in my opinion. Did you know that one out of four children in America have no idea where their next meal is coming from? More than 16 million children in the United States, (that’s 1 in 5 kids), live in households that struggle to put food on the table. Around 22% of kids under 18, in America, live in poverty. Right now, about 9.8 million children receive free or reduced price lunches, at school. 10.6 million more are eligible, but go without. When school lets out for the summer, those children will lose access to the school breakfasts, lunches and after-school snacks they receive during the regular school year. That does not sound like we are in recovery to me! Next they tell us that the Stock Market is at an all time high, well good for the ten percent of Americans that actually own stock, what about the other ninety percent of us that have no stock whatsoever?! It is just more of the rich getting richer and poor getting poorer. Do not be deceived by these BS numbers that the mainstream media show you, like any statistics they are easily manipulated to show you that you will be “ok”, when really all they are doing are buying themselves more time to line their pockets. The government is not your friend, they should be your employee, not your master! We need new leadership, we need to destroy the two-party system, we need real change, Republicans/Democrats bend over to the Corporations and Banks and they will continue to do so as long as you just keep up what you’re doing and that is nothing, But hey, I hear there is a new season of Dancing with the Stars starting soon, and Kardashians ass is at an all time big, so you just worry about that folks! CMON PEOPLE WAKE UP!!!
Like any clever magician the Federal Government has you all distracted, you’re so worried about gun rights and abortions that you all fail to see the bigger picture. The Federal Reserve, a private run company is bankrupting the United States, and meanwhile you all toil away your time worrying if they are going to pass a bill to take away your guns?! Open your eyes people your dollar had declined in value so much over the past ten years that most of you cannot even vacation overseas anymore because the exchange rate would kill you! Five years ago you could go to Australia and for every 60 cents you had you would get an Aussie Dollar, now it cost you $1.05 to get an Aussie dollar, that is what you need to be concerned about! The government wants you to focus on non issues like the second amendment and abortion laws, you think they really give a damn wether or not you have an abortion or own a gun? As long as you pay half your check to them they do not, I promise. People need to focus on the real issues at hand:
First Wars all over the world since the 1940’s? – Do we really need to be at constant war?
Second The federal reserve prints money daily and devalues everything you own by the minute!
Third Republicans = Democrats and until you figure out that they are just opposite sides of an equally worthless coin you are F’ed in the A.
Fourth the Government will not save you, you are supposed to be in control of them, they work for you, you are not supposed to be a slave to them and until more than a few stand up and realize this there will never be change.
New rules for war America! Put it to a vote! May 9, 2013
The war machine keeps turning, and boy is it ugly, The ball-less politicians come up with reasons we need to enter yet another pointless war and it is pissing me off! Why Iran, they havent invaded anyone in hundreds of years, yes they hate us because we took out their elected leader in 1953 to install the brutal Sha that killed tens of thousands, so what right? We need a few new rules to war. First off we bank online we can vote online, any war that the president or any other politician wants to get us into we vote for, fairly, democratically online! Second we need more leaders like George Washington, if you want a war fine but you lead the charge, then we will see how many battles we get our noses into! Third thing we need to do is stop calling retaliation terrorism, if we attack a country and they counter it’s not terrorism, it’s a counter maneuver! Next point is why are Israel and the US the only people allowed to arm themselves? Seems like that is not fair, if a county wants arms how are they any different from my redneck 2nd amendment screaming redneck buddies?
CMON people it’s a new world adapt or die! and let your politician know that if any more American blood is going to be spilt in a new war it should be their own first
What the hell, he is so careful and still gaffs! WTF are we suppose to think now, he almost said that 911 was a consipracy on national news! How come this interview isn’t being spread more!? LOL and even if there was nothiung to either he still looks like a goon!
America – The home of the blind May 5, 2013
Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death’s construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
That was written in 1970 to try to awaken people to what America represented, here we are over forty years later and the War Machine is now the only thing that keeps our economy afloat. People need to wake up and vote for something beyond Democrat and Republican- it’s your fault people that we are still under the rule of the Federal Reserve Bank, because that’s your god now! Your currency is only worth the oil that it is traded for and Syria, Iraq, Lybia were all trying to trade oil under a different forms of currency, and the US cannot have that or the Dollar would collapse completely. But now China and Russia have some power and when they start to trade on currency outside the US Dollar, which has already begun, your currency that is backed by nothing, will be worth that- NOTHING!! America better wake up and start to relize how F’ed in the A they are. I have moved, I am proud to live in Australia and I will not be returning to the US anytime soon, though I do hold citizenship in both countries. I am earning Australian Dollars, and we have a new trade agreement with China that supports the Aussie Dollar. In the past ten years the Aussie Dollar went from where .60 cents in American would by you $1 Aussie, now the Aussie Dollar is worth $1.05 American Dollars, it has almost doubled, but thats not the correct way to look at it, the American Dollar is collapsing, so the Aussie dollar hasn’t doubled so much as the American dollar has become worth half what it was ten years ago! WAKE UP FOLKS- you and your war machine are in trouble!
Ever wonder why the CIA needs so much of your hard earned tax dollars? Well according to Reuters here is the scoop.
Tens of millions of U.S. dollars in cash were delivered by the CIA in suitcases, backpacks and plastic shopping bags to the office of Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai for more than a decade, according to the New York Times, citing current and former advisers to the Afghan leader.
The so-called “ghost money” was meant to buy influence for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) but instead fuelled corruption and empowered warlords, undermining Washington’s exit strategy from Afghanistan, the newspaper quoted U.S. officials as saying.
“The biggest source of corruption in Afghanistan”, one American official said, “was the United States.”
The CIA declined to comment on the report and the U.S. State Department did not immediately comment. The New York Times did not publish any comment from Karzai or his office.
“We called it ‘ghost money’,” Khalil Roman, who served as Karzai’s chief of staff from 2002 until 2005, told the New York Times. “It came in secret and it left in secret.”
For more than a decade the cash was dropped off every month or so at the Afghan president’s office, the newspaper said.
Handing out cash has been standard procedure for the CIA in Afghanistan since the start of the war.
The cash payments to the president’s office do not appear to be subject to oversight and restrictions placed on official American aid to the country or the CIA’s formal assistance programs, like financing Afghan intelligence agencies, and do not appear to violate U.S. laws, said the New York Times.
There was no evidence that Karzai personally received any of the money, Afghan officials told the newspaper. The cash was handled by his National Security Council, it added.
U.S. and Afghan officials familiar with the payments were quoted as saying that the main goal in providing the cash was to maintain access to Karzai and his inner circle and to guarantee the CIA’s influence at the presidential palace, which wields tremendous power in Afghanistan’s highly centralized government.
Much of the money went to warlords and politicians, many with ties to the drug trade and in some cases the Taliban, the New York Times said. U.S. and Afghan officials were quoted as saying the CIA supported the same patronage networks that U.S. diplomats and law enforcement agents struggled to dismantle, leaving the government in the grip of organized crime.
In 2010, Karzai said his office received cash in bags from Iran, but that it was a transparent form of aid that helped cover expenses at the presidential palace. He said at the time that the United States made similar payments.
The latest New York Times report said much of the Iranian cash, like the CIA money, went to pay warlords and politicians.
For most of Karzai’s 11-year reign, there has been little interest in anti-corruption in the army or police. The country’s two most powerful institutions receive billions of dollars from donors annually but struggle just to recruit and maintain a force bled by high rates of desertion.
