When you only have two choices, you must decide who best represents your values.

They both take a beating though.

Great insight, pretty cool to see how folks write there headings.

I've read through those a couple times. I definitely think there's a different feel/vibe depending on which person they're writing about.

What's also telling to me is that I took these headlines for two Google pages for each candidate.

Fox News appears only once.

Breitbart twice.

Hot Air zero.

Red State zero.

Zerohedge zero.

But the obvious left wing blog Huffington Post three times.

Seems that a lot of these headlines that are anti-Trump are couched in what he/she said about Trump in the form of a report or quote. It's like the LSM guys can honestly say, "Hey now, we didn't say that...so and so did. Don't blame us!" Wink

For the average person just scanning through these headlines, what do you think they would get from it?

That both candidates are bad for the country.

Trump will originate deals based on business growth. America’s assets being the source for America’s growth if handled in a way that begins to embrace economic growth.

If you have $100,000.00 in a cd at a bank or a savings account and you're interest is only 1 to 3 percent, $1,000.00 to $3,000.00 a year is very low.

So interest rates got to go up at least 4 to 6 percent on homes in order to buy a home.

Look, who's been buying all the homes and TB's? 80 billion a month ring a bell.

If I had a bunch of homes, I might want to sell them. Boy, if I could regulate interest rates, and keep them very low, I would sell a lot of houses until all those credit worthily folks purchase a house.

Then you got regulations determining credit worthily standards.

And then you either have a bunch of rentals or folks that might be able to buy, grouping together to purchase, co-ops I guess, but not explored much and those with bad credit, that want to buy.

So here we have what’s suppose to be a separate power of the government, but not a government entity, approved by the congress but not the governors of the states at the time of conception, an entity that is given our money, which was loaned back to us, in which we, the American Tax Payer now allocates annual interest payments greater then buying a house.

The Federal Reserve Banks are no longer neutral and have become a liability to the country, in their pursuit to become the largest entity to own homes in America.

Our country can no longer have its economy subject to the interest rates on buying a home.

It is my hope, that Trump sees this coming. Hillary Clinton will grow the civilian government, which tells anyone, growth will not come.

Increasingly I'm thinking that we've built this society on a lick and a promise. Credit has done awesome things for us. But when you have to pay that back, PLUS INTEREST you're going to be in the hole if your original risks didn't work out...that is, you didn't profit as you thought you would.

And that applies to business as well as federal, state, and local governments (thinking bond issues here).

The assumption has always been that everything goes up up up...stocks, bonds, wages, productivity, wealth creation, and so on. Really much like a Ponzi scheme especially when one thinks on Social Security and pension funds. Demographics has a lot to do with that as well as embezzlement by the government, misuse of funds as well.

But what's interesting is that when those things don't go up, you're still stuck with the same taxes...or even higher and/or more taxes. The government Beast must be fed after all.

So....we end up with huge losses, and/or massive defaults.

Business is risk. Somewhere along the line (I'm thinking about 100 years ago when the Captains of Industry reigned) we as a society did away with risk as much as possible and went instead with safety nets, "sure things", insider info, government manipulation and safeguards, and hedging one's bets.

The Carnegies, Rockefellers and the rest weren't about risk. They bought out, manipulated and strangled the competition wherever they could. They got their pals in politics and the courts to help.

But if you have reduced risk, you don't really have free enterprise. When you don't have that, you minimize wealth creation and innovation. You also remove the ability to solve problems because everything is "good enough" and only Yes Men get the high positions.

At a certain point, you become so wealthy any competition is meaningless. To me, that is the number one reason economies are failing worldwide.

Go back a thousand years. How many blacksmiths could one village support? No one had a chain of smithies all across the kingdom and controlled prices and drove out competition, yet competition didn't exist. Innovation was excruciatingly slow and rare.

How many oil refineries or power plants can there be? How many of us can afford or get the loans to build new ones and compete? How about setting up a multi-billion dollar computer chip making operation?

Increasingly, competition is just not practical. We've come full circle and are back to Medieval economic stagnation.

Certainly government, taxation, the Federal Reserve, the Communists/NWO and a general dumbing down of an increasingly helpless and ignorant society are all factors.

But these issues are, to me, way beyond the capabilities of a Donald Trump and certainly a Hillary Clinton to fix.

Another major factor is all the wealth we've wasted on wars and military spending. Yes, I believe in a strong military, but we don't need (nor can afford) having 5-10X the number of aircraft carriers that other industrial countries have in their navies.

No one's going to invade us. Nobody else can afford to amass an amphibious force large enough to make it through our Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps air wings based here in the U.S. China pretends they can, but in reality they are broke. Plus our nuclear arsenal is more than a deterrent.

I agree with Trump about NATO, etc. We can't afford all these dozens of bases worldwide. We've been subsidizing their security so their politicians can allocate resources to Socialist Bread and Circuses programs and infrastructure that keeps them in power.

Also, we can't keep giving billions to ISIS, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and dozens of other countries.

When I read your thought’s, its makes me realize I‘m not the only thinker.

I’ll be publishing a report by years end that illustrates the aircraft carrier fleet do to overhauls reduces the effectiveness to five useable for theater of operation.

Your right about the carrier fleet becoming a liability economically and carriers are more vulnerable to killer carrier missiles or torpedoes.

The navy is focusing a new amphibious ship but continuing the CVN-21 series, better-known as the Ford Class.

I think forward deployed CVW’s working with two carriers when necessary will work, that is if we encounter another war.

Without a war, a carrier fleet is not necessary. The last time we had a war where other ship’s or submarines were able to fire back, hunt down and destroy was World War II.

A War with Naval Forces of China or Russia would result in carriers lost as they would be the first targets, suggesting most would be in mooring, state side while such a war would try and remain conventional..

War against Middle Eastern Countries Dictators or government rebels has gained little, while the lack of resolve to destroy ISIS will result in a cancer that will spread.

I’m not a dooms day looking into the future kind of guy, but I do believe our leaders are blinded to a certain party direction rather then actual solutions our country needs.

For example, Democrats believe the government should regulate to reduce risks for businesses and personal investments, rewarding us all with higher taxes for their services to the general public.

Regulations seen by Republicans (GOP) as stagnating the economy, like cap and trade, down sizing coal plants or the ACA added cost to employers.

Also, government subsidies like free tuition, school loan forgiveness and college education paid for by the tax payer adds trillions to the ND, in addition to the ACA government costs in Obama’s rush to make health care either affordable for everyone or free, without first figuring out where the bucks will come from other then federal income taxes.

Increasing taxes the only solution to Democrats, while the aforementioned will force even a Republican President to raise taxes.

Free Trade agreements will continue to create trade deficits. I’ve offered FRRD.

I find it alarming; folks feel the free enterprise system has failed to bring in the American Dream, when credit is offered so generously to buy a house at record low interest rates, or a car with very bad credit.

School loans, portion of tuition paid by the government, employers paying for birth control medicines, devices and or abortions for female employees.

Hillary Clinton as President, promising three month pregnancy leave, free college, higher pay, more Free Trade agreements and a huge government to employee all the college graduates to help protect us. Sounds cool until you have 5,000 employees, and 4,000 are young women or are a small shop with 6 women and four men.

The Democratic Party has become the Party of Shared Wealth, one for all, all for all, growing in the minds of children, mostly fermented into the young generations of the new millennium.

We are lost to the principal’s of the free enterprise system. It never included the Federal Reserve Banks and in the past in side information, and government favoritism behind back doors is the cost, as it turns out of building a nation.

The Indian Land Invasion and systematic termination of Indian Life, less those after the fact, whom signed treaties, was also as it turns out, the cost of building a nation.

Slavery a terrible cost, prompting Michelle Obama to say slaves built the White House.

In the 1700’s to the 1850’s, Slavery was an important economic machine, creating great wealth and power. One Congressman exclaimed that Slaves in the South have no ill content, with no inspiration, well cared for and fed, as compared to Blacks on the streets of New York, said he, the name of little importance, but the statement that continued was more derogatory by this Congressman about the Blacks inferiority and other arrogant thoughts, thoughts that had been passed from generation to generation for hundreds of years to Europeans who made it to America.

Not all granted, were for Slavery, a very fortunate turn of events in American History do to the number of anti Slavery folks, resulting in the Civil War, yet the Civil War was about power, and determination of Lincoln to keep the U. S. Of America a unified Republic, with three branches of government rather then two countries.

It took decades after the Civil war for Civil and Equal Rights to happen for Blacks and still equal rights wasn’t complete until after Brown vs a Bus Line, in Chicago I think, Martin Luther Kings effort as well as President Kennedy and others to usurer in a new dawn for countless over the decades that had no rights at all.

When you look at how folks lived during the dust bowl years in the mid western states, the lack of jobs as the populous grew, the great depression, the hordes of folks praying for a job waiting tell someone got sick or died, in order to get a job standing in a long line, camping and tens of thousands of folks that never worked, many whom died, next to the Hover Dam, a President Roosevelt Project, as compared to how folks live now, to not know your experiencing the American Dream, especially when you throw in the mix the communications devices and recreational battery operated or fuel propulsion toys, movies and video games, tractors a trucks, cars and businesses, trains and ships, planes and drones, bow and arrows, guns and riffles, medicines, hospitals and abortions, tanks and weapons, bombs and rockets, sex toys, drugs and horror movies, and so much more our ancestors had, shouts the American Dream is with every American and many work so others can also share in the dream of surviving without working for many reasons.

Our Society and economy has taken a turn to all signs facing socialism and or progressive thinking to a communist level of providing for the populous, rather then the populous providing for themselves.

To let go of the reigns, risk becomes inevitable, and for the individual investor, mistakes affect a person’s life, while the AIG’s of the world supposedly are too big to fail or Banks laundering dirty money, merely fined, so government moves in and directs rather then remains neutral.

When manipulations on all levels of government steer the economy, you get growth stagnation, i.e. solar panels competing against China’s production of said same cheaper or “it wasn’t as shovel ready as we thought,” trillion that didn’t boost the economy as desired or needed.

There is a balance however, where government works with businesses to succeed, yet this notion Obama implanted on folks minds when he said “”You didn’t build that business, government gave you the roads and means to ship your products…”, illustrates a mentality that the individual can‘t do anything without the government and folks and in addition, folks don’t understand the cost of doing business any more nor the government regulations and taxes involved, liabilities, employer employee responsibilities, etc., but most understand a minimum wage of $15.00 an hour as compared to $80.00 an hour working as an auto worker in a automotive plant.

The difference between how much one earns, is dependant on the product your boss sells, or as an employee owned business, the savings of not having an owner and more flexibility to improve and grown your products lines revenue.

When the government mandated minimum wage increases moderately over the years in the past, the market never reacted adversely and today were witnessing price increases in nearly everything, so time will tell if paying folks more an hour, whom still qualify for welfare services to include food stamps, housing assistance and free medical, or at least up to an income of $2,100.00 a month in my state of Oregon if you can justify you‘re expenses, kids, etc.

And then there is my favorite give away, Social Security Disability Insurance and Veterans Pension and free VA Health Care and Work Comp, a Quad, living only because of modern technologies, driving an electric wheelchair, my Bat Mobile, I’m living the American Dream on $1,100.00 a month personal income and an additional allotment for employees for 24 hour care in a Beach House to boot.

The American Dream is having the ability to live our lives the way we want to, to succeed if we desire to work hard, provided we don’t set to high expectations, education a major factor but not greater then our creativity, talents and skills, or just be a bum, a party hound living on beer bought by mowing yards.

Generations since after WW II, were gifted the American Dream, we’re living it now..

The free enterprise system was also a gift, but it was never meant so that ruthless folks could profit at the expense of the public, nor does it prevent a person to profit at the benefit of the public good.

As you mentioned SOT, we’re at a juncture where decisions that will be made by our next President will remain the same, that is to say, Obama economics or shuffle the cards for a Trump “Make America great Again,” era.

Trump to Clinton, “No more Mr. Nice Guy.”

You dam right, no more.

“Increasingly, competition is just not practical. We've come full circle and are back to Medieval economic stagnation”

Very True. The EPA regulations that limit industry growth, limit Americas growth, while new factories adhering to a meditation plan should be built by any business willing to return from over seas, other wise there will be more looking for jobs, but not willing to pick oranges.

40/20/40 is the only viable partnering rational our country can take to generate wealth for Americans and revenue for the government, and FRRD is the vehicle waiting to replace the Federal Reserve Banks and IRS, to include within ten to twenty years federal income tax abolished and the Federal Reserve Banks replaced with FRRD, working in conjunction with a national sales tax targeting selected areas of the economy like goods and products. Services if charged should reduce business taxes for business.

Of course there is the fair tax.

I’m thinking a Trump Administration will delay the inevitable while a Clinton Administration will force an economic default by the time she concludes her four year tour of office, unless she can convince the Federal Reserve Bank Chairman to continue investing in America buying up TB’s and Mortgages

Trump realizes that by reducing corporate taxes to 20 percent and as well, reduce foreign military bases unless were paid to protect a country like South Korea, will reduce government spending.

Trump said he would liquidate federal properties not being used and go after government waste, something all President candidates say, yet I think he would be held accountable for not following through with a promise, more so then Clinton.

He won’t go after your gun or riffle or MM 16. He will back refugee camps in the Syria conflict, screen folks entering feverously, build a southern wall where ever he can, less tribal lands, areas of animal migrations, etc., and deport how many folks?

Trump may find to accomplish the reduction in the alien population, stiff fines will have to be regulated by congress to discourage illegal alien hiring, while making available the means for farmers to higher Mexicans to harvest there crops. Catch and release program halted and illegal alien criminals deported back to there countries, rather then the streets of America, would go a long way in insuring pubic safety.

I’m hoping for more time, yet at the same time, I pray for God’s Kingdom and his Son’s Realm of 1,000 years, my self resurrected I’m praying one day to be gospel and true.

The lack of knowledge of folks in general in matters of politics, regulations and government, so great, that Sound Bites are all folks latch on to any more.

Those of us who stay tuned in, desire so much to help, but we’re not wanted nor needed, as the course set by a President determines the direction of our country.

So when given the chance to inter act with folks, in so doing, by stimulating my thoughts, I’m able to cope with a decaying race of human values and morality, while watching those in power do just about anything to get elected.

It’s enough to make a person start drinking or just puke. The DNC Chairman finally got burned from her actions by not being neutral and the GOP Leaders booing Trump illustrates the great divide between the parties that should forum four separate parties.

SOT, without a different approach for generating government revenue from federal income taxes for the most part, said taxes will continually increase until the worker can’t afford to work anymore.

Or at least that’s out it seems.

Concerning the aircraft carriers, face it...they're offensive weapons.

By keeping a huge aircraft carrier fleet to me that signals the desire to continue to be the world's police. Dunno. How's that worked out for us? Not too well.

The Japanese Empire was the last real threat we've dealt with since the British Navy of the Revolution and the War of 1812. I will concede that a strong carrier force was necessary because of Japanese Imperial Navy capabilities.

But...would the attack on Pearl Harbor have taken place if we had ICBMs? I seriously doubt that.

It seems that terrorism is the thing that keeps us having to maintain the carrier fleet as well as expensive overseas bases. It's the gift that keeps on giving...to the MIC (military industrial complex). And, once again, we're using our resources to benefit other countries.

9/11 smells to high heaven. I'm mostly convinced that it was indeed carried out by elements of our own government in collusion with Saudi Arabia and probably Israel. Which brings us to ISIS and Al Qaeda. These are constructs of U.S., European, Saudi and Israeli intelligence services. Exactly how the Twin Towers were taken down remains a mystery to me, but I'm convinced it wasn't done by Snackbars flying passenger airlines into them. Doesn't explain Building 7's collapse anyway.

------------

Slavery only benefited a few, the power elite. It was the same in ancient Rome. Sure the Masses got to see some cool gladiator fights in places like the Coliseum and races in the Circus Maximus, but I refer back to the idea I brought up earlier of Bread and Circuses (Panem et Circenses). The PTB had to hand out free bread (made mostly from Egyptian wheat) in order to keep said Masses from rioting. Today we have food stamps and all the other stuff...partly to buy votes as well.

The average Roman had basically the clothes on their back and little more.

How did slavery benefit the average Southerner who didn't own slaves? Not much. In fact, all that lead to was many a Southern household in tears because their husbands and/or sons never came home, or if they did they were missing a body part.

The guys who owned most of the slaves and the land were still wealthy and in charge after the war. Sherman's "bummers" couldn't get them all.

The idea that the Democrats are involved with "wealth redistribution" is a myth. It's nothing but stealing. The only results of the New Deal and the Great Society is an ever increasing poor sub class dependent upon government, and the concentration of more and more wealth in the accounts and holdings of a few. Again, a power elite...just like in Rome and just like in the Confederacy.

------------

The American Dream...

Remember when we were kids? Remember when a man could work a full time job and the wife stayed at home to take care of the kids and the household. The average middle class American did fine. A TV, a nice stereo/radio, a car, a nice place to live, decent furniture, spending money, the ability to take vacations, maybe even an 8mm movie camera to record their get togethers? Couldn't afford X? It wasn't a big deal.

People accepted that there were limits to what they could own based upon their incomes.

Remember when gas stations could have attendants pump your gas, wash your windshields, and check your oil and tire pressure and still remain profitable selling cheap gas?

Remember when a person could work in a department store and be able to comfortably support a family?

Remember when wood furniture was actually made out of wood and not sawdust/glue or plastic?

Remember when even cheap (American-made) stuff was well made?

Remember when quarters, dimes, and half dollars actually were mostly silver?

I remember those things...though I'm younger and caught only the tail end of a prosperous America, and also remember those things beginning to disappear back in the late '60s and early '70s. Still wasn't too bad, though.

--------------

What's interesting is that even the very wealthy are forced to purchase what can only be described as "crap" or to use a Civil War term, "shoddy".

Can any mansion built by a wealthy individual today begin to compare to the quality and workmanship of say a Biltmore or Vizcaya built by the Captains of Industry of over a century ago?

Saw a new "mansion" being built in the Orlando area (not even sure they've finished yet, kept running into cost overruns) on TV...basically just the same cinder block and sheet rock of an average 2-3 bedroom ranch style house. Only...bigger.

Think any (well-maintained) building constructed 100 years ago can't outlast anything built today?

What does this tell us?

I guess that we're simply spending more and getting less, but who is benefitting? No one really as far as I can tell.

It's all pretty sad.

We must navigate are way through the ripples ahead, as the past has showed us we’re not safe from ourselves.

Our we capable of such madness you speak of, or is it our inability to get to the truth that illuminates so clearly, the truth is not been fully disclosed as to the sponsors of the 911 act of full scale murder.

“by elements of our own government in collusion with Saudi Arabia and probably Israel.”

Why? I see no gain for America. The Mafia made out scrapping the steel. The Unions got high paying jobs. Bush was able to initiate a war because of the act of murder, but where is the benefit of such a partnership to destroy three buildings and so many lives.

It’s easier to grasp evil or ideology differences, like a holy war against us infidels.

How did slavery benefit the average Southerner who didn't own slaves? Not much. In fact, all that lead to was many a Southern household in tears because their husbands and/or sons never came home, or if they did they were missing a body part.

You are dead right, only the rich plantation owners and slave traders and contractors benefited. I read 400 Slave Contractors were paid to have their Slaves help build the White House over a period of years.

Why Congressman’s from the South kept spouting on about how well their Slaves were treated confuses me, unless they them selves owned Slaves.

From the first day money became the means to live by, greed swept in and economies have been manipulated every since.

I think about the Movie, “Gangs of New York,”, when it was the natives against the emigrants, resulting in street warfare, prompting the navy to fire on New York City.

Emigrants landing ashore often were recruited to join the Army during the Civil War, fighting a war for citizenship.

The average Southern Solider, fighting the Union Soldiers felt a deep since of belonging to their State and uncommon sense of loyalty for their leaders.

Almost similar to the 700 British Cavalrymen who road into the cannons of the Arabs.

When you evaluate the cost for our beginning as a nation as compared to the present condition of the states and federalism as a whole, our political institutions that can’t remain neutral or loyal, an economic system that is not based on fundamental wealth creation for our government, but instead by taxing folks to fund federalism, we exist now at the leisure and pleasure of our government, therefore we have enslaved ourselves.

The only real thing any of us can do is teach the kids of the future to be less reliant on the government.

For us old salts and or disabled were a cost to society, the major beef of the guy in Japan for why he murdered so many disabled.

I believe in yesterday because it is the past. The future we make as we travel through time. When we remember the past we become time traveler’s without the ability to effect time or change our condition in life.

But everyday forward is what we make it, so we better do the best we can, because what we do will affect our lives.

I prefer to learn, yet when I’m dead it won’t matter much, those dam bugs are going to be eating away at me.

I think I’d like a cell phone head set in my coffin with a fully charged battery, a radio and a hinge able lid, a air vent and my cat with his own door.

When asked of Hillary Clinton what she would want in her coffin with her, she said, Bill.

Loyalty, it’s a heck of thing.

Mmmm, yeah but all those military contractors benefited such as Blackwater and Halliburton to name a couple.

What did "Al-Qaeda" gain from it?

Nothing as far as I can tell.

Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey, Jordan, Kuwait and Israel all benefited because Saddam was taken out.

The Assad regime is ba'athist like that of Saddam. It has to go, too.

OK, let's say the standard version of 9/11 is true. Then that means that our government failed to protect us. And don't forget, the WTC was bombed years before.

So, we've had this ongoing military, diplomatic and intelligence presence in the Middle East going back many decades. Did that protect us?

And again, if we believe all of these subsequent attacks took place since 9/11, then what good has Enduring Freedom and these other operations done to protect us?

Nothing.

But...they keep telling us we have to keep doing the same old same old in order to protect us...but, they don't protect us.

What?

That's true, there was a lot of infrastructure built in Iraq and much destroyed after built, and I read Vice President Chaney benefited, as did others.

Weapons of mass destruction was reported, yet UN Resolutions violations lead the way for OIF.

OEF was as a result of 911 and while we finally killed Bin Laden, we failed to destroy Al-Qaida or the Taliban and now there is ISIS, which we could have destroyed when they boldly Marched across the desert from Syria to Iraq, but our CIC abandoned Iraq and felt ISIS was JV.

If the Captain of a ship is responsible for his command, then our CIC is also responsible for policy failures.

In Vietnam, bomb and helicopter manufacturers benefited and we got nothing for lost blood and treasure.

Its the same with Iraq and Afghanistan.

I don't believe our government or any government can protect us against radical wackos with WMD components available on the black market.

I got pulled away so couldn't finish my 911 thoughts, not that there that great.

SOT, many believe as you, that their was governments involved.

Its been said Saudi Arriba elite financed those nuts that high jacked those planes.

Building structural design failures once aviation fuel exploded in the elevator shafts brought two buildings down so they say.

The building you speak of I thought had a shallow footing. Its been so long ago, I don't believe a plane hit it.

Lets say someone wanted those buildings gone to create work in New York, and as well, knew a war would create work for Contractors rebuilding Iraq from around the world, but chiefly America contractors as a result, planned in advance, would these folks be the CIA of those countries you sighted or one day will our government, 40 years from now, tell us who sponsored those nuts.

They were able to fly by the FBI, Home Land Security, civilian and military radar.

Makes me think a plane with a nuke onboard could easily fly into any large city or shore line of America un detected.

So our governments assets were either not up to the job of protecting us or it was, and someone was told to stand down.

Civilian targets is one thing, but the Pentagon, surely our own CIA or military wouldn't attack themselves.

So all that remains is conspiracy because what you suggest is within the scope of theories that can't be proven.

Were left with only the official count.

Well, all I can say is that the official story can't be proven, either. Also, the official story is one of conspiracy in itself. Guess it comes down to which conspiracy theory one chooses to believe...rather like November 22nd, 1963.

Be that as it may, the last Iraq invasion only happened because of 9/11. Though I think Saddam did sponsor some terror training camps, no one said that Iraq was a bastion of Al-Qaeda power.

Interestingly, Bin Laden was never wanted by the FBI for 9/11...he was a red herring for the government and the LSM:

Quote:
“The FBI gathers evidence. Once evidence is gathered, it is turned over to the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice then decides whether it has enough evidence to present to a federal grand jury. In the case of the 1998 United States Embassies being bombed, bin Laden has been formally indicted and charged by a grand jury. He has not been formally indicted and charged in connection with 9/11 because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting bin Laden to 9/11.”


As for Building 7 not even the government claimed that it had been hit by an airplane. I'm thinking they never said it was hit by anything at all?

I didn't know Bin Laden was never charged or indicted for 911.

The 1998 Embassy bombings you bet.

So when our CIC made his speech after they killed Bin Laden, exclaiming this nut concluded basically the war on terror, linking him to 911, Obama blamed a nut job guilty before any evidence of his participation in the crimes against humanity.

See what happens when you begin believing Sound Bites of Obama.

I'm thinking he hook winked a bunch of us sleeping.

I thought the 911 papers exclaimed those responsible, pointing fingers at Saudi Arriba elites, Taliban and al-Qaeda, supposedly Bin Laden's followers.

"Afghans in the Taliban heartland of southern Afghanistan said bin Laden’s death meant he would now be adopted as al-Qaeda’s “number one martyr”.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/pakistan/8487822/Osama-bin-Laden- dead-followers-warn-of-another-77.html

So if Bin Laden is these folks leader and he was never charged or indicted, I fail to see why we attacked them in the first place, unless it had to do with training camps spreading terror both in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The official story was because of 911 we all were told, hook line and sinker we took the bait.

We may just have the sneakiest government on planet Houston.

At the time I thought the evidence spouted was damaging, meriting both wars.

The weapons of WMD and 911 was enough for me to support both wars.

Since Iraq was abandoned by our CIC and Afghanistan will soon be abandoned by our CIC, to say I regret supporting both wars isn't enough some how.

Lives were lost and the Middle East is disrupted now, as a result of with drawing from Iraq and attacking Libya, the latter really confused me as their leader was working with the U S.

Well SOT, We can't trust our government.
