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

“The President signed this assault on our Bill of Rights on New Year’s Eve, 2011. Those who still believe in him think he’s being blackmailed by world financiers, skeptics think he’s sold out. Whatever you think, it reeks with the odor of lobby. It really is a shame that for all his smarts, he’s letting his advisors lead him around by the nose. Tsk, Tsk, Mr. President. I really did think more of you. Sad to see you basically just declare war upon the American Citizenry and declare America a “battleground” where mom and pop will now have to endure jacked up military dudes showing up in riot gear to check out granny’s save the whale posts. Yeah? Greenpeace is now a terrorist group? Who knew? Granny, there’s some dudes here to see you.
Granny takes one long look at them and says ‘how much is that gear costing me, dudes?’ ” – Rabble Rouser
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.
It’s not pitchfoks and shovels, this time.
What started as a ragtag bunch of peaceful protesters on Wall Street, has now blossomed into a worldwide Occupy Movement. When people around the world started to see the peaceful assembly being attacked and peaceful, unarmed protesters being brutalized by “public servants” who are supposed to “serve and protect” them, more and more supported them. Veterans showed up, to help protect them. A worldwide movement is now in full swing, with countries as far away as both Egypt and Israel, marching in solidarity with U.S. protesters who have been brutalized beyond belief.
One such protester, US Marine Scott Olsen, survived two tours in Iraq, only to come home and get hit in the head by an Oakland Police “projectile” and suffered brain injury to the speech center of his brain. His crime? Simply peacefully assembling. He is said to have “provoked no one” and footage of the incident shows there was no cause for police to abuse their power so forcefully that night.
Think about that one for a minute. Injured like this. Suffering brain damage to the speech center of his brain.
It’s enough to leave anyone speechless.
Rick Perry is gonna outdo George Bush on being a Texan? Will he answer the question – if Texas is rolling in so much dough, why do they need so much government assistance? Why can’t they pay for their own disaster victims? It appears, they like government help when it comes to securing their borders, but when it comes to anything else, wasn’t Perry the dude who wanted to secede from the Union? It seems, Perry thinks this country needs another dose of Texas GOP politics, when we’re still surviving the last one. The approach is perhaps the anti-JFK. Ask not what you can do for your country, but what your country can do for you, and your corporate buds.
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.
If, as one Greek philosopher put it, the world is always in a state of flux, or change, then what is one to hold on to, when the seas are shifting, and sands blow in different directions? Keep trudging along forward, I suppose. Your own motion, steadily, toward your target. You’ll find adventure along the way, which is where most of the fun is. On the side of the road, up a road you never meant to go down, or in the back roads you never knew about.“The end of the road gets more and more narrow, so follow as many roads as can take you, before you get to the end,” she said.

Not America. Not you. Not me. Who holds our debt? Multinational banks? Who do our politicians work for? America? Or something else? Why would they do something that would help big banks get bigger interest rates, and crash our economy even worse than it is now? Do they want America to fail?
Wall Street is once again so corrupt, they’re like children misbehaving, begging for discipline.
