    “If the general population were to ever see this country as it actually is, they would chase everyone in Capital Hill up a tree and set fire to it.”

    Couldn’t agree more

    Ahh, I do understand, thanks for clearing it up.

    One more thought. From what I understand the incubmancy rate for the USSR was in the upper 90% for their ‘elections’, and ours is somewhere in the 90% range as well. Coincidence, hopeful/ignorant population, or parallel?

    I wasn’t around during the Cold War but it seems consuming the population in fear may have been the most profitable aspect for those in control. I could see some men in black suits licking their lips over the ‘threat’ of China. Perhaps the only thing that could stop another cold war would be our [...]

    “We complain about the revolving door in Washington but to me it simply looks like intra-office advancement.”

    I believe the term you’re looking for is fascism. Or as Mr. Mussolini said..”Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.”

    Its out in the open. None of them are being arrested because nobody has the authority. And all three branches know it.

    Second on Mohammed’s posts. I tend to agree with eye witnesses. Its pretty obvious who is responsible for the majority of death and destruction in the world – theres only one empire

    Not a chance. It would open too many minds.

    I don’t have a lot of knowledge of the Secret Service, just what I observed from my brother’s graduation into the service. I went to his graduation ceremony and watched the newest class of recruits receive their honors and guns (used ones, he was pissed! HA!). I don’t defend any of what they did (he [...]

    Republicans serve as condom placers to the orgy that is big business. Democrats are the tollbooth operators to get to that orgy.

    “Our efforts are wasted trying to prop up a deeply corrupt central government that lacks popular respect.” – Sounds familiar.

    So, what does it mean when the wishes of the majority of the population in a democracy are simply ignored…time, and time, and time again?

    Geeze, whats that word..it starts with a letter..but I can’t remember which one it is. Must be the fluoride. Silly me.

    I wasn’t alive during Vietnam but the two (Vietnam & Afg.) appear to be quite similar on the surface (drug running, strategic positioning, MIC, etc…)

    I don’t see the crusade war ending anytime soon. I’m not even sure a new Daniel Ellsburg could help end it, though I guess Assange is a fair parallel. IMHO the Wikileaks documents alone warrant a far greater upheaval than just exiting Afghanistan.

    Wait, where did I put my car keys? Well, shucks.

    I also fear we’re “past the point of no return.” The food we eat isn’t food, the water we drink is poisoned, and our air is, well, I don’t even know. Lately I haven’t been viewing (speaking for myself) life as life at all. We’re the nameless characters in a video game; the extras in [...]

    I have a few honest questions on student loans and banking in general as it seems I may have missed a few econ 101 classes. If my questions are due to my ignorance or simple lack of knowledge, please let me know. If not, any answers would be helpful. I’ve been paying my student loans [...]

    ” Words form the thread on which we string our experiences. Without them we should live spasmodically and intermittently. Hatred itself is not so strong that animals will not forget it, if distracted, even in the presence of the enemy. Watch a pair of cats, crouching on the brink of a fight. Balefully the eyes [...]

  • I think I remember hearing on the radio that somewhere around 200,000 jobs need to be added per month to account for population increase -just to keep even. Anybody know how close to being accurate that is? Or are those figures added in already? (Not sorry for any pessimism)
