This a good time to bring this up...

Since 911 this country has been run by fear. The military industrial complex in my opinion,.has taken advantage of war on terror, to the point that they don’t feel they have to answer to anyone in the country.
In some respects I feel this also applies to the POTUS. It is very difficult for a president to defy military
wants...

It also bothers me that local law enforcement has piggy banked on the “Hero” image to the point that it has become ridiculous . These guys feel they don’t have to answer to the public...because of the “constant terrorist threats” Watch a small city council at work and notice how the council city managers give into any demand the police captain desires.

Not saying that these are not brave and honorable men and women.... but enough of the 24hr “ thank you for your service" stuff....

1. The powerful don't give a big rat's ass. The powerful manipulate the powerless. That's mankind.

That's why we have laws. The powerful pass laws that the powerless have to abide by or else.
