An unbelievable crime against everything human...and YES it is for money! What do we all live for and dream of and want more than anything, what makes Jackie "JACKIE"...what have we been convinced can ONLY come our way if we are willing to trample every decent thing we ever developed...why, money of course.
When democratic, freedom loving Athens defeated the Persian Empire, victory went to its head and it shed its enlightened past to become a despotic despoiler and Imperial power...the hatred it engendered led to a final struggle with almost every neighbor that reduced it and destroyed its reputation as well as its wealth and standing.
EVERY empire feels immune and all powerfull...they wouldnīt embark on such a venture if they didnīt...and every one of them has failed. Given the proliferation of weapons in the world...failure today will come faster...not slower. Today you can "win" an all out war and live to regret it.
The millionaire businessmen and women weīve handed over our govenment to will do with us what they do with their employees...worse with the rest of the people on this planet...they will explouit us in their mad dash for immediate personal power and wealth...wealth way beyond what any sane person needs...and at the expense of basic standards of living for the majority of us. All we have to learn to do is just say NO to monmey...to money being the means as well as the criteria for measuring success or worth.
They are committing these crimes against us and others in our own name, and by the power we let them wrench from us...or give to them out of boredom and a lack of interest. It will only get worse as long as we do that. Iy isnīt Bushīs fault he is what he is...itīs ours for allowing him to steal the White House...and distract us from that and other scadals that pose a far greater risk to our way of life than bearded malcontents 14,000 miles away. So far WE kill and impoverish and rob more Americans than any terrorist organization does.
We have met the enemy...we know the bastard well.
