We spend nearly a trillion dollars a year on defense...more than the next thirteen most powerful nations in the world. We have troops in 170 countries and the last time anyone surrendered to us was 1945. We've had a presence in the middle east since the late 1920's...early 1930's. I doubt that it's a coincidence that the automobile was just beginning to use a lot of oil products.
Think about this....how would you feel about armed troops from another country standing around every time you left your home? We should bring our troops home and use a trimmed down military for what the framers intended...to protect our citizens if we're attacked.
All of that is true and valid. However, we are being invaded by a different type of enemy. One that uses deriatives and financial debt as weapons of destruction. Different tactics, same reults down the line.

America has been used (now used up) as a weapon by the IMF banking ellites for their own gain. We need to round them up.

You are right again. Americans gave on America last November. The War is Over. We are only Obamaland now.
Get used to it people. The very worst is yet to come.

Mass starvation is unlikely. Irritability and outrage maybe, but not starvation.

The National Center for Health Statistics recently announced that 64.5 percent of American adults are overweight or obese.

Most have cancer and diabetis from consuming all the GMO in their EBT Walmart diets. And we will pay for their health care and make the insurance companies rich.

Yes.. because Americans have evolved into a group of idiots who sit and watch "American Idol" and "Dancing with the Stars" all night and don't get up off their sorry asses and exercise.

The GOP happily lets veterans, the elderly, and the working poor starve rather than asking the wealthy to pay a dime more in taxes. The new report that came out this week showing how great the economic disparity is in this nation with a flatline for the middle class, and high gains in prosperity for the UNDERTAXED rich and corporations IS disgusting. The GOP only works for the rich.

In remarks made in front of Amazon employees in Chattanooga last week, President Obama used Kim and Kanye as examples of a "shift in culture" that is poisoning today's youth and altering The American Dream.- See more at: http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/2013/08/pre...

Oddly, I havn't heard president Obama weigh in on Miley Cyrus yet.
I mean, he's usually pretty good at stepping up and commenting on on everything from religion and diet to pop culture.
