So while we, by that we mean U.S. citizens, have been arguing over right and left and right and wrong, political parties and the virtues of one president over another, the thief that didn't call has been coming in the back door and taking our shit! Not that we weren't warned. The signs were there, but for the most part we did not look for them. We new things were FU'ed. We just figured if went about on our own way it would ignore us. Whoops. So anyway the following post and it's links are almost like reading about the here and now. So we figured what the hell, we will just repost and figure we have done our good deed for the day. Cause after all, so few read it the first time we doubt many others are gonna read it this time.
In the councils of government we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. - Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961Failure to read can be hazardous to your freedom!
