Unfortunately, the Bush faithful don't want to hear how his administration ripped off the American people and flushed our surplus down the toilet. I've known about the $9 billion in cash that went poof and disappeared after it was shipped to Iraq for quite a while. Where are the questions about that? How many people would that have provided health care for? Where's the outrage about that?

Exactly. I am wondering the same thing. The attitude is that it is all in the past, yet the current administration is being falsely accused of exactly the same behaviors (see "Obama Prince of Lies" post). It is utterly mind-boggling.

If part/parts of the "Obama Prince of Lies" article is false, educate us with verifiable facts, not opinions...

This is all Obama's fault. I'm not sure how, but let's not allow facts to get in the way of the Two Minute Hate.

Here's something print and clip as an insert in your wallet.

IF BUSH DID IT = GOOD
IF OBAMA DID IT = BAD

See? Now you don't have to think for yourself.

The Game

Students of history. Don't start with the simple explanation when examining the history of power, look for the better explanation.

Here's an illustration.

During Bush's tenure, the data reveals a military spending level that far exceeded any nation on earth by many multiples. The totals, into the hundreds of billions produced a totally unsustainable global police force. We have more than 120 countries around the world where we have US military bases. PNAC's New American Century (2000) white paper outlined this very clearly BEFORE he came to office.

Now during Obama's short tenure now, the President of "change" is not bringing the boys home. The size of military spending continues to climb and we are pouring even more troops into Afghanistan.

Does anyone understand that government reports have documented that Afghanistan has one of the largest gas reserves in the world, and Iraq has one of the largest oil reserve? Is it possible that neither Democrat or Republican bashing is really getting to the root of where the real power is in developing long term global political and financial policy?

Food for thought.

You said it Best Minds, the Dems and the Repubs are on the same team, owned by the International Banksters. In reality, we have one party, and we are not part of it. We are all "Enemies of the State", that is very clear. The plan is to destroy the middle class and that is what we are witnessing daily. The War Budget, the mortgage bubble scheme, the stimulus and bailout fraud, cap and trade, all elements of the plan to bankrupt USA and Americans. USA is already bankrupt, the money to pay back the real debt does not exist. Federal Reserve Notes are in essence worthless pieces of paper, backed by nothing. The owners of the Federal Reserve own all the gold that this country ever had. The federal Reserve is neither Federal nor does it have a Reserve. Makes money out of thin air and loans it to the government, and charges interest. Inflation is a hidden tax, the prices are not going up, the value of the dollar is going down, due to the "Fed" printing money like there is no tomorrow. Zimbawee, here we come. They are destroying the dollar by printing money 24/7, and so goes the USA. All of our income tax is used to pay against the interest we owe the "Fed", with none of it payed against the principle.

A quote by Thomas Jefferson: "If the American people ever allow private banks
to control the issue of their money,
first by inflation and then by deflation,
the banks and corporations that will
grow up around them (around the banks),
will deprive the people of their property
until their children will wake up homeless
on the continent their fathers conquered."


BINGO That is exactly what we are living.


The illegal Federal Reserve Bank is the third Central Bank the USA has ever had. The country disposed of the first two but only temporarily. Here is another Jefferson quote:

“I sincerely believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. The issuing powers should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs.”

Of course "Stay Cool" chimed in to add confusion with his brand of disinformation/LIES!

He says "Exactly. I am wondering the same thing. The attitude is that it is all in the past, yet the current administration is being falsely accused of exactly the same behaviors (see "Obama Prince of Lies" post). It is utterly mind-boggling."

What is it Stay Cool? The past or the present? You are trying to make it "utterly mind-boggling." (Should read "Obama King of Lies" "Stay Cool Prince of Lies")

Hang the Traitors, thats the law of the land. WAKE-UP AMERICANS Our future looks bleak, our kids future does not exist unless WE DO SOMETHING!!!
