Bombing Our Way Into The Hearts And Minds...

Drought caused by climate change, which in turn was caused by polluters, poverty as a result of drought and greed...these are the things that create extremism. Despite the whining from the Wrong Wing, the United States cannot afford to nor should it bomb its way into the hearts and minds of the Middle East. The military industrial complex that Eisenhower warned us about doesn't think we need to do anything but bomb the hell out of anybody who doesn't see eye to eye with us.  

Doesn't that tell you something?

It's like this country cannot seem to do anything without the military. Just check the budget: over half is dedicated to the military! A tiny, tiny portion goes to protecting and paying the soldiers...the rest is for management and materiel. Guess who the Oil Companies' biggest customer is? Well, it sure ain't Joe Public driving his SUV down 2 blocks to get his fuckin' Latte. 

I just want to know one many of our soldiers need to die before we decide to stop blowing people up and try something different? 4,000, 40,000, 400,0000, 4 million?

The "News" Media Distraction

All the "news" (hahahahaha) networks talking about Daesh (formerly ISIS or ISIL or what the fuck ever) distracting you from the real problem you are facing...corporations robbing you. Por exemplo: You paying an average of $150 for your cable or satellite service which includes a lot of channels of shit and 20 minutes per hour of bullshit advertising. In other words, you're being robbed of at least 20 minutes per hour of shitty service, piss poor content. Back in the day, when there were only 3 channels plus UHF, there was a hell of a lot better content and only 8 minutes of ads that often were for products that DIDN'T kill you, Maybe it's time we go from complaining to kicking some corpoate ratbag in the nut sack.
