    War is terrible and it is not just what is happening now it is always the same. People can never return to normalcy while their country is involved in War.

    American’s need to realize that they have suffered too much but still their suffering is nothing compared to the countries where any War is being fought. When a loved one is lost in War it also means questioning their own reasons for enlisting and being a part of the military solution. This will never stop until people realize they are responsible for their actions and the governments that start these wars. DT

      There is a saying and it goes, “if you are looking for trouble you will find it’. Our species is so warlike that we will not endure because the bully around the corner is bigger and stronger and you may meet him in a walk to the corner store or in the universe beyond us. Only intelligence and social skills will ensure our survival. Violence and War are for the losers. DT

      Just a shade under 50% Jerry. Does that count social security or other types of insurance that are prepaid by us?

      Jerry, this country can’t afford all this warmongering. This country is past broke, running on fumes.

      Mark my words, the debt and unfunded liabilities will swallow this country whole.

      An awesome day of reckoning is coming and it may well be upon us sooner than most think.

            How do you see it playing out, Jerry?

            A horrific economic collapse or permanent economic stagnation punctuated by 2008 style crashes that drag the standard of living continually lower?

            What’s going to happen when the next recession hits? What’s going to happen when budget deficits top a trillion again (and that’s just what the gooberment admits to)? What happens as the gooberment debt continues its inexorable rocket upward? What happens when the Feral Reserve’s economic repression no longer works and interests rates spike?

            Will our rulers take us into another major war?

            I do not see how we are going to have permanent stagnation……
            We have stagflation now…….college debt, auto debt, housing debt, all covered over by lending to a public at low interest rates with all products increasing in price.
            Eventually, the public goes broke, not being able to continue financing the higher levels of debt….the debt clock shows approx 700,000 BRs.
            The govt is broke…….$200Trillion in Unfunded liabilities , ….who pays the bill…., with Private debt already at record levels…from record mortgage debt, auto debt and school debt……and with the majority of people with less than $400 in savings. I did not even mention the medical out of pocket and health insurance. I think we already have a Collapse., people have been to busy to realize it…………JMO

            How about a pertinent comment here about this woman’s very important message or would you rather not comment unless you can bitch!

            Ok, Mr. Big Al. I will comment on the video.

            If we had a foreign policy the founders implored (no entangling alliances, no going abroad to slay foreign monsters, etc.) and if we did not have a myriad of special interests who profit from war that the rest of us get to pay for, this video never would have been made.

            As long as we have military bases all over the world and as long as this gooberment intervenes in the affairs of countries all over the world, basically as long as we have warmongers running the country many more such videos will be made.

            Ebolan/Big Al:

            War is never the best solution, always the worse solution. Instead of honoring war, we should honor peace. What the US has done to our military over the past 18 years goes beyond criminal. We have destroyed the military fighting wars for a third party.

    A sad, but all too common story.

    The military is a meat grinder.

    It puts out it’s glossy propaganda on the TV to recruit gullible young people, like it’s going to be some glorious adventure. They recruit 16-year-olds for ROTC!

    But when they come back, completely F’d up? The military treats them like disposable trash. My understanding is that most of the homeless are vets.

    So yes, we should ‘Support our Troops’ — by calling BS on the criminal wars that our criminal leaders involve us in, bringing them home, AND seeing that they get the assistance they need (without allowing deadbeats to milk the system, which IS rampant).

    I am sorry for her loss. her children’s loss, Eddy is right.
    Who has had the money in the last 1500 years?
    In the House of Representatives there are symbols on each side of the Speaker’s
    podium . What do they mean and why are they there?

        Fasces At The U.S. House Of Representatives

        By Liberty1955 | Posted September 15, 2011

        “The Roman “fasces” — which had been on the “Mercury Dime” for many years — was replaced by the torch of liberty (stylistically quite similar, but with 180 degree different messages). But it has not been replaced in the U.S. House.

        I guess that, after the World War II defeat of Mussolini, the political establishment thought it might be good PR to remove this symbol of fascism.

        The symbol represented the strength of unity.

        “The unity of government… is a main pillar in the edifice of your real independence…of your tranquility at home, your peace abroad; of your safety; of your prosperity; of that very liberty which you so highly prize.”

        The Roman Republic began and flourished based upon that same principle of just enough federal government to provide unity to its provinces.

        You may recognize their ancient symbol, the fasces.

        The many rods representing the sovereign states have in the midst of them an axe representing the national strength derived from their unity.

        The thin cord which holds the rods together as a bundle represents the minimal amount of federal government necessary to maintain that unity. This tenet of unity is deservedly extolled by Washington.

        Learning from history that “the essence of freedom is the proper limitation of government,” our forefathers chose this symbol based upon this original meaning and placed it in the House of Representatives directly behind the Speaker of the House.

        Two fasces on either side of the American flag were placed there as a constant reminder for future members of Congress.”

        I’m curious to hear YOUR reaction to this video, Al, if it’s significantly different than ours.

    The story is an interesting one to follow.
    Rogers and Casey, move east.
    They been saying it for years.

    Imagine the opportunities, as well as the benefit of extracting yourself from a police state.

    The people aware of whats happening have the chance to prepare themselves as best they can, those that are not aware will deal with things as they develop, the way people always have.

    This change is not really anything to be concerned with, the reserve currency has changed before and the world lived.

    The real concerns are environmental, or will the american and Zionist psychopaths start a nuclear war.
