America’s Silent Killing Fields

2 Comments

America’s silent killers are deadly, and do not discriminate. They target babies, the elderly, teenagers, young adults, middle-age housewives, and businessmen alike. They poison livestock, pets, and wildlife, and the people behind them deny complicity in the carnage. Who or what are these silent, deadly killers? They are the beautiful, green, uniform, and seemingly beneficial, killing fields of GMO crops. The people behind them are the U.S. government, the Rockefellers, Monsanto, Dow, DuPont, and Syngenta.

Why Don’t We Just Buy the Oil…..and Get Rid of Congress?

Leave a comment

From my mathematical friend who is consumed with the real meaning of the numbers that are flung about by that collection of dregs that now parades as our Federal government, I received this small note this morning:

“quote”……

 How Much Is Too Much To Spend On a Preemptive War?

As of this third week in March 2008, the wars in the Mideast (Afghanistan and Iraq) have cost us $538.6 Billion.  That is $5,686 per U.S. family.

Let’s see if we can wrap our minds around the numbers.

·         $538.6 Billion dollars would buy ALL the fuel for ALL the commuters in Minnesota for 116 years and four months.  (At 12,000 miles per year, 20 mpg, $3.10 per gallon)

·         $538.6 Billion dollars would pay a year of premiums on a $955 per month health insurance policy for EVERY uninsured person in the United States.  (46,995,000 as of August, 2007)

·         At $250 Million per bridge, $538.6 Billion dollars would replace 2,154 bridges

·         $538.6 Billion dollars is a LOT of money.

My $5,686 could have been spent in many better ways.

At the risk of sounding naïve, why don’t we just buy the oil, instead of trying to control it?

Dan Martin (end quote..)

I agree Dan.  Why didn’t we just save our selves, our country and the world a lot of grief, and just pay for the oil we needed or wanted?  Why?  Because blasting other countries off the map, killing indigenous populations, manufacturing weaponry and making war a business was far more profitable on so many fronts. 

Think what we have accomplished by attacking non-threatening countries that had something we coveted.  Just look at the “freedom” we brought to Afghanistan and Iraq!  Look at these burgeoning democracies that have governments we hand picked to make sure things were done our way to benefit the elite.   We have many things to be thankful for in this massive genocide for oil and thanks to the use of Depleted Uranium on the Iraqi’s, massive and horrendous birth defects are occurring at an alarming rate.  Not that it matters, those exposed to this radio-active gas are going to have a short life anyway, and that includes our military that was also exposed.

Thanks to Paul Bremer, Iraqi farmers can no longer even save seed for next years crops.  It’s illegal.

Thanks to the World Bank, an Iraqi national cannot be loaned money for a business start-up . . . only foreign investors allowed.”

Thanks to Halliburton and KBR and others like them, reconstruction has cost billions upon billions, most of which can’t be accounted for and nothing is getting built that would account for the massive amount of money American taxpayers have had to ante up.

Thanks to Cheney and the oil cartels, we are building a multi-billion dollar embassy in the middle of a pile of rubble we created.  This….while we keep destroying everything in sight and killing anything that moves. 

Thanks to Blackwater and CACI, we now have roving gangs of hired killers that are not subject to any laws anywhere.

Thanks to these wars of aggression to benefit the greed of a few, we are faced with a staged collapse of our own economy. As Americans, we now own less than 18% of our own country while our infrastructure is sold off to foreign investors, home foreclosures skyrocket, and jobs are shipped to foreign countries.

Thanks to the phony War OF Terror, we have lost the writ of habeas corpus, due process, and the right to defend ourselves.  We can now be declared “domestic terrorists” for speaking out against the policies of corporate government.

Thanks to the failure of Homeland Security or the Attorney General, our borders remain wide open while we are colonized by people who not only do not respect us, but openly express their contempt for us; all to benefit the free movement of people and goods for the benefit of business under the S&PP and to facilitate the North American Union Merger.

Thanks to the phony War OF Terror, the president can now declare a national emergency even if he is the only one to perceive one (congress can’t review it for six months); and declare martial law, suspending the Constitution with its Bill of Rights and any upcoming elections, and effectively establish himself as king and dictator. 

Thanks to the Civil Assistance Plan signed with Canada (also with Germany and Mexico and others) we can look forward to foreign militaries patrolling our streets, among other things.

And thanks to our do nothing congresses, nothing has been done or will be done to halt or stop any of this.  What this tells me is that they are part of the problem.  We already know they are math challenged and don’t understand that the money they blow is ours.  For some reason they have come to believe that the money they waste is theirs.  This siphon on the public monies is so addictive that these parasites on the public couldn’t even vote to stop their selves from “earmarking” funds for wasteful and stupid projects but they sure don’t have any problem passing an almost unanimous vote nine times in the last seven years giving their selves raises and perks.

Then there is that illegal immigration thing.  For some reason, Speaker Pelosi just can’t seem to understand that her constituents, and 78% of her countrymen oppose amnesty, increases in visa’s, and continuing to support to the tune of billions of dollars a year just to the Federal government (your tax money) people who broke our laws.  Ms. Pelosi now works behind the scenes trying to pass or include one anti-American amnesty plan or another.  This after Americans rose up in massive numbers in opposition to each and every form of the “Dream Act” that was put forward last year.  Billions of dollars that could have helped American families, created jobs, shored up our infrastructure or built that damn fence!  have gone to pay the livelihood of people who are not even legal residents of this country.  Thank you so much, Princess Pelosi! 

I have come to the conclusion that the best thing we could do at this point is to rid ourselves of congress.  This institution has become nothing but a siphon of taxpayer money and is totally useless in either defending or protecting the citizenry from what has become an evil empire or is conspiring with it to dismantle our country.  Dismantling the federal congress would allow states to individually decide what they will support or not.  My, but that would change the landscape of corporate government wouldn’t it?  If the senators and representatives were only on the state level and had to stay in-state and actually face the people they are trying to screw over, maybe then things would change.  I would be thankful for that.

Maybe we need to send Dan to Washington (he always has his super-duper calculator with him) and have him sit down and explain to these imbeciles that the math just doesn’t work.  Maybe we could all send each of our legislators a calculator and maybe provide them with a tutor or math translator (after all we’re paying for translators in public schools for kids who don’t speak English) to help them better understand that we are no longer willing to pay for private wars, illegal immigrants, or bridges to nowhere, and that we cannot afford to continue these devastating policies.

But, thanks to those who cling to the right vs. left paradigm, who think God loves us more than others, that gay people are demon possessed, who hate the Muslims because some money grubbing preacher said that God wanted us to hate them and kill them, who believe that killing people “over there” is not going to happen “over here” or that supporting candidates from either side who will only give us more of the same things we have been enduring…. thanks to those people, nothing is going to change. 

In the end I have to repeat Dan’s question: “Why don’t we just buy the oil?”  Think of all the grief, the killing, destruction, hatred, bigotry, jobs, homes, businesses that would have been preserved.  Think of all the good that could have been done throughout our own country with 500 billion that has been squandered for war and to enable the destruction of our Republic. 

Then ask yourself, why we didn’t just buy the oil?
