Is the GOP a Threat to National Security? Did the wars make us more secure? Some argue, it has actually made us less safe.

Back in the ’60’s, there was an awakening about war and other social issues, like what’s happening now, only they had more of a Free Press, and actual war reporting rather than just “embedded” press agents. How is the average person’s story told today? How are our voices heard? How do we find out what’s going on?
Tick tock people – time to wake up. There are chilling things that could be happening this very minute. Our president is poised to sign a document that shreds our Bill of Rights. Here I thought I voted for a Constitutional Scholar. I thought he’d protect our rights, not sign them away. He will be losing the coveted Independent Vote with a stupid move like this. He will lose the votes of all those starry eyed liberals who voted for him thinking he could perform miracles. He will only be licking the boot heels of the Republicans, who wrote this assault upon the American Citizen, and who have declared war against him anyway. What a stupid move, Mr. President. Your “note” attached will not save you.
The world is watching, as cable news proves how irrelevant they are as a “news” source.
It’s all over the internet.
Do not let them silence your voice. Do not let them silence your vote. It is the only thing we have that is more powerful than all of them.
Guess it’s time for the market to take a dip. Are short sellers lighting cigars somewhere? All it takes is a hush, a whisper and a false report, to bring down an entire company overnight. Yes, because regulators are so intent on pleasing their corporate masters, they threaten to plunge America into default, rather than bite the hand that feeds them.
Yes. The boom and busting bubble market will always pop and go down. Those who are hoarding cash will go shopping for the low, low price of whatever they decide to plunge the price down to. If you’ve already got investments, hold on. The roller coaster usually comes on the heels of political news, so it’s not surprising to see it happening now.
First, for anyone who wants to call themselves a “free market” person, let’s get one thing straight – a manipulated market, is not a free market. A monopoly, or even a cartel that monopolizes and manipulates the market, is not a free market. Second, for anyone who wants to pretend they stand for liberty, while actually advocating anarchy and no rules – it is our right to vote on a set of rules we all live by, that separates the self governing Free State from the arbitrary rule of the King’s Slave State.
Let’s get something else straight while we’re at it – rules and regulations that are put in place to protect consumers, taxpayers and ratepayers are there for a reason. Usually, because someone got hurt. Badly. There was a reason they enacted the Glass-Steagall regulations that protected Main Street from Wall Street’s gambling addiction. After they tore it down, big surprise, the same swindlers who crashed the economy the first time and caused the Great Depression, were at it again.
The only reason we’re not suffering another Great Depression, is because of some more fancy dancing on Wall Street, that still isn’t clear to most of us, and they’re fighting like hell to keep Elizabeth Warren’s watchful eye out of it. As Wall Street gets back to it’s old gambling ways, betting all our 401ks on predatory schemes and peddling their bullshit all over again, we still don’t have Glass-Steagall laws in place, nor have any serious measures been taken to curb the orgy of anarchy on Wall Street that even Alan Greenspan admits didn’t “police itself.” No. Greed does not police itself.
