  1. Idiots?! People like Kissinger, Albright, and Rockefeller might be considered 'moral idiots', but dumbdumb-idiots? I don't think so!

    There's an old saying in Buddhism: Wisdom without compassion leads to cruelty. That is what we see in our leaders today…they have lots of worldly wisdom without a particle of compassion to temper it. Moreover, there exists a small group of individuals who excel at being truly evil; nature has cursed us with these individuals, but we allow them to flourish! So, who are the real idiots here?

    @ Henry_Clemens: The "best and the brightest" are identified early on and quickly snapped up by one of the arms of the NWO. There are plenty of wicked people who will pay our smart lads and lasses huge sums to do bad things…but is there anyone paying them to be good? So, again, I have to ask the question: who are the real idiots here?

    1. Simple. Those who aid and comfort, through support and outright theft of their time, blood and treasure, these altogether evil men and women at the levers of power.

    2. Simple. Those who aid and comfort, through support and outright theft of their time, blood, and treasure, these altogether evil men and women at the levers of power. You can squawk all you like at those at the top, and thats legitimate, but they would never be there if there wasn't a pyramid of sycophantic ass kissers.

        1. I got it right away. Those in power aren't as stupid as people paint them. Evil, yes. Stupid,no. And if the best and brightest had any shred of morality, or any sense of decency, we wouldn't even be having this debate. The fact that they succumb so willingly is that they're fellow travelers, cut from the same cloth as you will, as those that recruit them. Which is to say they are as evil, though intelligent, as their elder cousins. The true idiots, I repeat, are those that willingly or ignorantly support these clowns in their aspirations.

          1. The American people have a responsibility to reign in their leaders and punish them, if necessary, when they step over the line. The American people haven't done that…they've turned a blind-eye to the rampant corruption that is destroying this nation. It's the common man who's the lazy idiot in all of this.

            The fact that "the best and the brightest" succumb to the lure of power and wealth is something that has been with us forever…would you be able to resist the temptation? But there's more. In addition to the promise of lots of cash, and sex with pretty girls, there are threats that are used to secure the compliance of "the best and the brightest"…"Do as we say and we'll make you rich…go against us and we'll make you wish that you were never born!"

    Ya gotta wonder if the Amerikan sheeple will ever wake up and overthrow the whole corrupt, lying, murdering, thieving gummymint…nah…never happen.

  3. Where have all America's leaders gone, a long time passing? WAR! Where have all America's leaders gone, a long, long, time ago? WAR! Where have all America's leaders gone? They're gone to idiocy everyone. When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?

    Assassin in Chief no racist, killing unarmed civilians from thousands of miles away is what gives him pleasure.

  5. the truth is Obama simply doesn't have the balls to make a real decision here. He's too afraid to just get out of Afghanistan and be blamed for "allowing a safehaven for alqaida" by republicans if another terrorist attack occurs, yet i feel he doesn't want to escalate to vietnam proportions either for fear of catching hell from his own supporters. So what we get is Obama's butt falling between two stools as he tries to sit on both of them. It's agonizing and disgusting to watch, but bottom line is while Bush was the "deciderer", Obama is the eternal "undecided" – too afraid to displease anyone of incfluence on the right or the left. get used to that for the next 4-8 years.

  6. As one with more than 20 years experience in Afghanistan I can say with certainty; there is not a military solution. Having traveled with the mujahideen in the mountains of Paktia during the Soviet occupation, I see similarities between our, and their, prosecution of war. The Afghans are no different than others whose only political orientation is bound by a passion to rid the homeland of foreign intruders. Professor Robert Pape of the University of Chicago conducted years of research to the question of so-called insurgencies in his seminal work, "Dying to Win." His conclusion; more than 95% of the time asymetrical warfare is in response to foreign occupation.
    We cannot expect to win hearts and minds through unmanned drone strikes that cannot diferentiate between a young girl carrying a bundle of firewood and a "militant" with an RPG.
    Like it or not we have become an empire of war profiteers.

  7. It is never about winning hearts and minds,freedom,liberty,democracy ,or getting rid of this or that! It always has been about perpetual wars for perpetual profits!

  8. It’s not really “the best and brightest” for the most part. They’re hired by a “machine” that exists distributed among thousands of minds. Eliminate even half of these mercenaries, and given that the machine is powered by extorted (tax) money, they will be replaced by a new crop of “the best and brightest.”

    It’s not the “lazy citizens” either. The only way to shut down the machine is to deprive it of money. About the only thing that might work would be to stop paying taxes. Most citizens aren’t lazy, they’re intimidated by the IRS, etc.

    However, you might take a step in the right direction by joining the ranks of the “unbanked.” Google it.

    1. "The only way to shut down the machine is to deprive it of money." I couldn't agree with you more…I started depriving the machine of it's money back in 2001. But out of all the people I know I'm the only one who's stopped "feeding the machine".

      "Most citizens aren't lazy, they're intimidated by the IRS, etc." Okay, maybe lazy wasn't the best word to use – cowardly is much closer to the truth. But "brainwashed" also applies.

      The US has become one of the most hated nations on earth…second only to Israel. And it's the cowardly middle-class consumer-zombies – shuffling mindlessly back and forth from refrigerator to couch – who have allowed this country to be systematically destroyed.

      The common man is nothing more than a life-support system for the wallet.

      Thanks for your input, L. Reichard! ;)
