morons. They may think they're smart, but I think they're just a bunch of morons.

If it weren't for the fact that we have people who are always provoking wars for profit, people who wish to exploit the poor and the helpless for their own personal gain, and people with idiotic and messianic ideas of spreading American-style "democracy" (It's really just their form of capitalism), we would not have to deal with the blowback. It is these parasites who have controlled foreign policy for the longest time, and the citizenry have failed to make a dent on their grip of power no matter if it was a Democrat or a Republican controlling the Oval Office.

What's this blowback? People pissed off enough to want to kill us, that's what. This government has always attempted to attack, rip down, or destroy the aspirations of other people to live in peace because it somehow conflicted with the bottom lines of too many powerful people on Wall Street. So what do we do? We support bloody coups. We launch horrific wars, and we engage in the most vile form of geopolitical subterfuge imaginable to achieve the goal of "protecting American interests." We literally send the poor to bleed and die for the rich.

Fuck that shit. If you are so intent on growing cash crops in Nicaragua without having to pay taxes to the locals, making a living on building the machines of war to be sold to dictators like Suharto or the Shah, or making a buck off the wholesale raping of their natural resources like the privatization of water utilities in Latin America for your pals on Wall Street, then how about YOU fight the fucking locals for once! How about you bleed and die for your own goddamn money! How about you go there and stamp out the people who finally snapped and exploded in violent rage on you! How about you go out there and attract the suicide bombers instead of hiding behind civilians in our big cities and big buildings and big planes!

Instead of getting us to bail you out everytime you fuck over one too many people with the mind to kill you! Fight your own fucking war!

3. Most interesting to me
is that Poodle had to come up with this one - Bush has no fugging credibility and any 'plot' would have been laughed to scorn. The timing of this one is just too convenient. EfuggingNOUGH - send these fuggers to the Hague.

4. I think a lot of Americans know what you are getting at
But the corporate media and dominate culture in America keeps most people from knowing what horrors the US has been doing since it/we became an imperialist power.

6. There's a very simple thing that you and I...
...can do to begin the process of STOPPING THIS INSANITY.

It's very simple and you can start today. Ready?

STOP USING YOUR FUCKING CREDIT CARDS!!!

Seriously. Stop paying interest. Stop borrowing THEIR money so you can afford to buy the crap they make and then paying them back more than you borrowed. That's how wealth is created and that new wealth goes straight to the top. This is the Revolution and this is the only way we will get these reptile vampires from hell off our backs. We, who are sitting in the air-conditioning at our computers, are the consumers of the horrors that they are committing, and they are not going to stop dropping bombs on babies until WE make it unprofitable for them. You can scream about "war crimes" until you are blue in the face and they won't give a flying fuck. Cut up your credit cards and send them back in the mail, and they'll get real ansty real fast!!!

Sorry...
