Did you dare to openly disagree with Bush’s invasion of
Iraq? You would be accused of hating America and siding with the terrorists.
Maybe even appear on a no-fly list.
Dare to protest the Military Industrial Complex and its
powerful influence on our government and public policy that Ike warned us
about? See above.
Dare to protest the corruption and immunity of Wall
Street? Then you WILL be demonized and disparaged as a dirty commie hippy
dropout, at the minimum.
So you dare to disagree with corporate person-hood and
corporate money corrupting our elections and government? Too bad. You
will be accused of being “anti-free speech” and un-American.
Dare to protest and condemn the theft of land,
occupation, and wholesale slaughter of innocents by Israel’s far Right Likud
Party? You will be called an “anti-Semite” and maybe “pro-terrorist”. You
may even have the FBI
at your door.
Dare to join hundreds of thousands of people
demonstrating their concerns about pollution and climate change? Nobody cares.
The “liberal media” will ignore all
Hate Obama? Hate paying taxes? Hate liberals? Hate the
Federal Government and its constitutional duty to tax for the general welfare
and regulate commerce? Join the Koch/FOX (R) Tea Party and let your protest be
amplified. Even if only a few dozen show up. You will find corporate PR and
corporate media covering, if not cheering, your anger and hate.
If you want to know who runs the place, notice the
tolerance, and intolerance, to hate or criticism.
well, it looks like Obama has his war after all. Hey, that's what the job calls

(AP) — Nearly seven in 10 Americans believe it is likely that ousted Iraqi

long ago I predicted, quite easily, of course, an Iraq War III. It was

Sarah, never mind the cult of the far Right was just this week accusing Obama
of having no strategy. I suppose that would make sense to someone who blames
Obama that, “America turned tail and turned away from all we’d sacrificed
there”. Again, it was BUSH who signed the agreement to leave, under pressure
from Iraqis sick of the occupation. Just blame the black guy, like a good
racist, war mongering idiot. The RRBC Radical Right Bubble Cult is full of
fumes, “Terrorists who we had under control got to regroup and grow after
Obama’s premature pull out.” Or would that also be false?
what about the terrorists we created by invading Iraq? Damn, some of us got
that one correct, too.
Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of the jihadist terror group was detained without
charges by US forces, for reasons unclear, and confined in Camp Bucca. Although
he was released into Iraqi custody in 2009, (Before, not after, the
alleged “premature pull out") former inmates of Camp
Bucca say the military prison was a training ground for extremism.
James Skylar Gerrond, a former US Air Force security forces officer and a
compound commander at Camp Bucca in 2006 and 2007, also says that he believes
Baghdadi's stay at the prison contributed to his radicalization—or at least
bolstered his extremism.
Sarah, “Those are the facts, and some tough talking speech is still just talk.”
America, listen to the tough talking Quitter in Lipstick. She’s the
“experienced expert” to guide our nation.
