1.  “Endless War and the culture of unrestrained power

The mere utterance of the word Terrorism (which now means little more than: violence or extremism by Muslims in opposition to American or Israeli actions and interests) is — at least for America’s political and media class — as potent in justifying wars, civil liberties assaults, and massive military spending as it was in the immediate aftermath of 9/11.  And worship of the American military and all that it does — and a corresponding taboo on speaking ill of it except for tactical critiques (it would be better if they purchased this other weapon system or fought this war a bit differently) — is the closest thing America has to a national religion.”

2.  “With 9/11 No Need for “Seven Days in May”

Sadly, as our nation falls deeper into a depression ( financially and emotionally ) few seem to challenge the Military Industrial Complex that even Cold War warrior President Eisenhower chose to warn us about… much too late! No, the hypocrites who wear those Republican, Democrat and Tea Party buttons on their election cycle lapels only care about serving the empire. Who is this empire? Who makes bundles of money from phony wars, illegal invasions and occupations? Who earns profits from those fantastic up and down swings of the S& P? Yet, they still pull the strings and watch the obedient lemmings march to the edge of the cliff of reason. Swim anyone?”
