I was up until 2 in the morning dealing with my parents, as my mom spent most of the night in the emergency room. She’s back at home resting but I’m exhausted so here’s a short blog….
I read this morning that the USA, is conducting secret air strikes in Yemen. OK… so that’s war #4, which us yet another war without congressional approval. Why not just throw out the constitution right now, and declare ourselves a fascist state. We can wear arm bands, and start goose-stepping to our workplace, and sing patriotic songs at the water cooler, and report suspicious activities to the proper authorities and conduct random pat-downs just in case someones grandmother is wearing an explosive suicide belt!
President Eisenhower warned us of the military, industrial complex before he left office. What we see in 2011 is endless war with Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and now Yemen. I wish I had the video playing right now of Obama telling the people BEFORE the election how he was going to bring our blood and treasure, back home and close Gitmo! Well here we are 2.5 years later and the war rages on, 45 million people are on food stamps, foreclosures are at depression level numbers, and our government has grown bigger…this is the change we can believe in?
Yesterday a SWAT team broke into an apartment and arrested a man without a warrant. It’s ok though because it wasn’t you or me, it was someone else, that had the jack boot on his back, at least for now.
America is at a crossroads and unless we the people take control of the weasels and Weiners that are our leaders, all will be lost. Just think 45 million people on food stamps…. We haven’t seen this since the great depression.
In closing todays’ post: The Military Industrial complex absorbs billions of our tax dollars. We are all over the globe, “policing” it while making sure that the rebels in Libya can “purchase” heavy artillery from their local fallafal stand. God help us….
