How To Deal With Media Brainwashing


I was quite taken by this segment of a George Galloway show in which a caller had the typical American point of view that somehow Iran is both an enemy and an aggressor…

In the end, can fact, logic, and reason prevail?

Iran may be the free world’s last hope.

Conspiracy 101 – A Breakdown of Reality


Since nothing in the American culture of politics, religion, and society is what it appears to be on the surface, I’d like to just cover a basic truth for each paradigm we “believe” in…

1) The Constitution – There is no constitution. The United States was declared insolvent and bankrupt in 1933 by President Roosevelt, and it then became a communist state. (http://www.apfn.net/DOC-100_bankruptcy.htm). Besides,  the only “people” that were ever bound by the constitution for the united states of America, were the ones who wrote and signed it, and they’ve been dead for 200 years. Any contract must be entered into willingly and signed, sealed, delivered, witnessed, or acknowledged by you in order for you to be bound by it. Therefore, the constitution is null and void for all of us. While our politicians do take the constitutional oath to keep up appearances, Article 1, Section 6 of the U.S. constitution states:

“They (politicians) shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.”

This means that they cannot be held accountable for anything they do that is “unconstitutional”. Therefore, the oath of office is a contradiction to the protections afforded by the constitution itself. And who decides what is supposedly unconstitutional? The judicial branch of the so-called “government”. So… “government” decides what “government” can and cannot do “constitutionally”. If the irony of this is lost on you, then quit reading now… The most simple way to comprehend this, is that the constitution guaranteed a republic form of government. However, we are in a democracy – a system vehemently opposed by all of the writers of this so-called constitution, and a system that is a communist platform (democracy, socialism, fascism, etc…). Therefore, the very democratic “government”, or rule by majority, that we all live under is already inherently unconstitutional. Therefore, we do not live under constitutional rule. Democracy is a communist ideal… period.


2) Government – There is no government, because there is no country. We have private corporations, not representative governments. This is easy enough to prove, simply by looking at the Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports of all “government” bodies (corporations) in the “United States”. All for-profit corporations must file this report, as it is the law to do so. These are public domain, and hidden in plain sight. We have representatives of the “government” – some voted for, some not – from the president on down to local representatives. But, what is the actual “government”. If you can answer that, let me know. For it is not a tangible thing. It does not have any physical attributes that you can point to and say: “That is the government”. The closest thing to a “government” we have, are banks – since government is just transfer of wealth by government agents like the IRS by force. Your money or your life… or at least your property and your freedom.

3) Law – God’s law in natural law states that you shall do no harm to others, or their property. This is basic common law, and the only true law that really applies to us. An eye for an eye applies here… But over time, a bunch of lawyers and attorneys have come up with a bunch of unintelligible, barely comprehensible word phrases stating your inability to be free. Again, as there is no contract that you signed stating that you except and are therefore bound by these laws, you are not accountable for following these laws. A law can not be constitutional, since the constitution does not apply to our country or ourselves, accept in some idealistic, unrealistic theory. As long as you are duped into believing that your rights are granted to you by the constitution, you will follow even the most tyrannical, socialistic, communist, and draconian laws that are passed under the guise of constitutionality and false-liberty. A law is an intangible thing… Laws and the authority of their enforcers can only exist if the common people can be trained like dogs to follow them, forgetting their own natural-born, God-given authority to live free on this land without tyranny and oppression.

4) Borders – When you cross over into another state, do you somehow feel different? Does a little bell go off in your head on a trans-continental flight every time you fly into the official airspace of each state? When an “illegal” person of Hispanic decent crosses the Mohave Desert and over the U.S./Mexico “border”, are they any less hungry or thirsty as they step over the pretend invisible line? Are they any less Mexican? Borders are invisible lines – again not tangible things – which begs the question of jurisdiction… what actually stops the powers of the “government”? An invisible line? Each state is a separate corporation, controlled by the main corporation: U.S. Inc. And, when one researches who owns U.S. Inc, one finds that the United States never really separated from Great Britain, whom never really separated from the Vatican. So, the true jurisdiction of our “government” comes from a child molester in a big castle called the Vatican, which is not part of Italy, but rather a separate corporate state within the Italian “country”. There are no borders, only psychological fear and oppressive punishments for the crossing of imaginary lines by your “government” and its “code-enforcers”. Borders are ideological pretenses that mean nothing if you do not recognize their power, which is bestowed by the “government”, which of course also only has power if you give up your own. There are no tangible borders, because there are no “countries”, because there are no “governments”, because there is no “law” but what you participate in. Participation is paramount to communist control and domination. Without it, there is nothing but you and your own boundaries (borders).

5) Washington D.C. is the capital of the United States – The District of Columbia (Washington D.C.) is a separate entity from the United States. It is not a state – meaning it is not one of or part of the United States. It is not a commonwealth of the U.S. It is not a city, town, county, or island. It is however, a country! But remember, a country is simply a corporation. The ten-mile stretch of land that holds our federal government, is not under the jurisdiction of anything except itself. It is untouchable by us. We have no rights there, and we have no power to do anything to stop this corporation from doing its business – control of us. States are just sub-corporations under the Federal corporation of Washington D.C.

6) Terrorism – Blind acceptance of the myth that terrorism equates to individual persons or extremist “groups” killing and blowing up things for their personal gain is how terrorism has been sold to the American public. But I challenge you to find one person or group who has benefited from these terrorist incidents and attacks. Traditionally and historically, terrorism has been used by governments to persuade their citizens to act according to rule of law or to enter said “country” into war for profit. The act of terrorism is indeed a government tool for control. If you need proof of this fact, one must only inquire as to who profits from these acts of terror?

Osama bin Laden? He lost everything, and gained nothing… even losing all of the support of his people.

Saddam Husein? He lost his country, his wealth, and his life!

The Taliban? They are constantly hunted down, beaten, imprisoned, and killed like animals and are now cast as the scourge of the world.

But when one does look at who profits from terrorism, one finds massive profits in our corporate “government” and its corporate partners like Halliburton. We find the complete takeover of other countries, declared as the spread of “democracy”. Translated, this means the spread of corporate fascism – the takeover of all land by the main corporation, while destroying the infrastructure of that land in order to force monetary loans and debt in order to rebuild that infrastructure. Of course, since these “countries” can never pay back the “loans” provided by the charitable corporate “government” (banks), the terrorized “country” is forced through this clandestine terrorism to give up all mineral, water, and other resource rights to the corporation who conquered it through its spread of “democracy”. Incidentally, when one researches who it is that is bombing, killing, threatening, and destroying things all over the world, one always inevitably finds a connection to the CIA and/or the Mossad, though I’m not sure there is really a difference. From the shoe-bomber to the school-shooters to the suicide bombers (who bomb their own peoples schools and hospitals??? – Figure that one out!) to the 9/11 hijackers (many of which are still alive and asking why they are being blaming), there is always a CIA/MOSSAD connection. Even Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden (CIA name: Tim Osman) were involved with the CIA. There are no terrorists but our own “government agents”. Heck, where do you think they get all of their weapons???

7) War – The “United States” has not officially declared “war” since World War II. Therefore, all of the more than 50 “countries” that we have attacked, conquered, occupied, assassinated the leaders of, destroyed the infrastructure of, killed the people of, destroyed the pride of, and committed war crimes and human rights atrocities which are unparalleled in our history, were terrorized by us. These should be interpreted as nothing more than the corporate takeover of every world economy. War is something completely different, being a declaration that falls within the laws that govern such wars. War crimes, Geneva Conventions, and other protective vehicles for civilians do not apply in an undeclared war. We are the terrorists.

8) Voting – An educated voter is non-existent. Even the most educated of the voting public can not possibly “know” anything about the candidates for which they vote, besides by their portrayal in the propagandist media. Therefore all voters are technically uneducated. If that weren’t bad enough, we have been tricked into voting on machines – machines which have been proven over and over again to be fixable. In other words, at least 80% of the public votes on machines that can be easily manipulated to change their votes to a desired result. Elections are show business. They no more represent the will of the people than they do the integrity of the “government”. Elections can best be described as the hiring of non-representative corporate figureheads through carefully manipulated public opinion. The only vote that counts is no vote at all. Participation is the only action that lends credence to this false system of “government”. And when more than half of the entire country’s populace doesn’t even show up to vote in the first place, the legitimacy of these “politicians” to rule by majority vote is completely unfounded. There is no legitimate government…

9) America is a free country – This opinion has been propagated upon America’s population since day 1. So let’s discuss briefly what we as citizens are free to do: I can drive, but only with a license and mandatory insurance. I can buy and sell items, but only if I pay a tax and have a seller’s license. I can fly on a plane, but only after military style search and seizure and a complete background check with two forms of ID. I can get a job, but only if I am a member of the Social Security club and pay state, federal, and local taxes on my wages, as well as mandatory insurance. I can listen to the radio or watch TV, but someone is always there to decide what is proper for me to hear – editing out words and scenes, and sometimes even banishing my favorite speakers and shows from available viewership. I can own a gun, but only if I register it and let the police decide if I qualify for one based on my personal and criminal history. I can live in an apartment or house, but I must keep that house and its land up to local and state code, otherwise code enforcement (corporate private police) will be knocking on my door and handing me a citation. I can hold up a sign declaring my disdain for all of these rules, regulations, and the people who force them upon me, but only if I have a permit and do so in a free-speech zone. You do not live in a free country.

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

10) Police are there to protect and serve – Police are there to enforce code. They are there to assign taxes, in the form of citations and tickets. They are there to command a sense of authority and the illusion of control. They are not there for the benefit of the people, though sometimes they coincidentally protect or serve some fortunate people, usually the wealthier ones. They are the corporate enforcers of legalities, statutes, codes, signage, rules, regulations, etc… Many police forces are in fact private corporate entities. Parking police aren’t police at all. They take no oath, and they are not schooled in standard police training. They are barely required to have a high school education, and may just hav a G.E.D. instead. Many are hired by private corporations who only hire minorities. The parking enforcement in Los Angeles, for instance, is part of a corporation based in New York City, which is paid for by taxpayer dollars to write tickets and tow as many vehicles as possible to make a profit. They have been caught many times removing temporary permits and handicap placards after breaking into vehicles, in order to ticket and tow. They have a quota. And the regular police do not have authority over these private corporate enforcement companies acting as police. Protection is purchased from private security, not bestowed by public police officers. Service is not in the law enforcement handbook.

11) Only a fool represents himself in court – When you hire an attorney or one gets appointed for you by the court, you are in fact admitting to the court that you are incompetent to represent yourself , and mentally unstable to the point that you must become a ward of the court (of the state), giving up all of your rights. Attorney’s, like police, are there to ensure that code is followed, and to object to anything the court does that might entitle his client to sue the court (the state). A monetary value must always accompany any judgement, and the attorney ensures compliance with legal procedure. He does not represent you, but instead represents the court. A BAR’d attorney has taken an oath to uphold the legal requirements of the judicial system. What you must understand is that the BAR stands for “BRITISH ACCREDITED REGISTRY”. This association is housed in London England, or more properly, the small area in London that is not part of England, but rather like Washington D.C. in the fact that it is its own country – a corporate “state” controlling our own.

12) Churches are independent, non-profit, charitable organizations – Catholic, Mormon, Methodist, Jewish, Islamic, and all other organized religions have one corporate structure of which all individual churches are sub corporations (501-3c). The main church is a for-profit corporation. Each individual church is a non-profit sub-corporation of the main corporate entity. They are not independent. They must pay their share of money to be a part of this corporate structure. Charity is often not what it appears. Welfare is a form of domination and control. And religions, as for-profit corporations, are free to contribute to and influence politics, politicians, and government just as all other for-profit corporations are allowed to do. After all, according to the Supreme court: Corporations are people too!

13) You have rights – No, you have privileges granted by the state. Of course, you have natural God-given rights, but only if you know how to exercise them through sovereignty and natural law. Since the constitution does not apply to you, you cannot invoke this document as a source of your “rights”. You did not sign it. It is not a binding contract, even for the agreeable parts. Your privilages are granted by the “state” even though technically there is no state, only a corporation that exists solely because you let it control you and your life, liberty, and freedom.

14) You own your house or property – Actually, if you look at your deed or title, you are listed plainly as a “tenant”. Your land and by default the structure built upon it (your house) is the property of the “state”, or more accurately the bank. No matter how long you live in your house, you will be forced to pay property tax. This is not necessarily a tax as much as it is rent to the “government”. If you believe me to be in error about this fact, I would invite you to stop paying your rent (property tax). Your home and property will be confiscated. Consider this protection money… protection from corporate takeover. And if this is not enough to convince you, one only need consider the law and practice of eminent domain. This confiscation tool can be used to take your property at any time and for any reason. No exceptions there, except in cases of elodial title or land patent. Sure, they pay you what “they” set as fair-market value… but you must also consider that “they” are the ones creating the money supply and therefore the “market”.

15) 9/11 was an inside job – This is the popular cry of the 9/11 truth movement, of which I am happily a part of. But this is not a true statement. All roads lead to Israel and it’s CIA counterpart, the Mossad. That would make it an outside job. Of course, Israel is supported by billions of dollars of taxpayer money, and would not exist without U.S. backing. But, to say “inside job” doesn’t make clear that the people in our “government” who were involved with the events of 9/11 are Zionist and/or dual Israeli citizens, or very supportive and uber-friendly with the “state” of Israel. In other words, many in the Bush cabinet were in fact Jewish Zionist and duel-Israeli citizens. But also, to bring home that this event was not an “inside job”, our federal government is an outside entity (corporation), as discussed above, and not housed within the United States proper. Remember, Washington D.C. is not part of the United States. It is a foreign corporate entity. Therefore, any federally employed persons involved with 9/11 were operating outside of the “United States” – or the 50 unified states. So to call it an inside job is inaccurate, as this implies that our “government” is an inside entity and part of our “states united”.

16) Pro-choice means pro-abortion – Choice is a fundamental quality of freedom. Abortion however, is not. When someone is pro-choice, they are not necessarily pro-abortion. They are what the name implies… “for” the individuals right to choose, which should never be taken away. They are declaring freedom of “choice”, and are not declaring that abortion is in any way good or acceptable. No subject is cut and dry, and abortion cannot be classified into one of two group views. Choice is pro-choice, not pro-abortion. Education is key.

17) There is a difference between the Democratic and Republican parties – “The left-right paradigm” is a phrase coined by Alex Jones. It represents a state of belief in the two-party system. It means that which ever “side” you choose, you inherently and by default vilify the other side. It means that one is good and one is bad. All the while, party members and supporters never comprehend that there is no difference between the two parties standard platforms, excepting their “public” views on abortion. But even on abortion, the efforts by both parties to depopulate the world is clear, with forced abortion mandates in Africa, one-child policies in Asia, and others. These policies are corporate. They are instituted by the corporation, which dominates these poor countries. And the corporation includes democrats and republicans. You see, it doesn’t matter what you believe as a democrat or a republican, it only matters what the men and women who are the elected and unelected officials in these parties believe. They are corporate officers. They have no regard for what you believe is right or wrong.

It all boils down to this: If the democrats are in power – as they are now – they were put there because the public opinion of republicans was guided by the media to make you vote democratic this time around, not realizing that they are simply the same people playing good-cop/bad-cop roles in a publicly broadcast, fake dramatic sitcom. Now, after 8 years of horrific republican rule under the Bush regime, we will get 4-8 years of even worse tyrannical rule by the Obama ragime. And, once the media works its magic, we will once again vote republican. But, the same players (or actors) that were in previous administrations are again in power. Because what you have to realize is that by electing a single man for president, you are really “electing” all of the unelected officials that the “elected” president “hires” once he is elected. Therefore, we have tens and hundreds of “APPOINTED” officials ruling over us, and even ruling over our other congressional and senatorial elected officials. This is not a representative government… for you must be chosen to represent the people in order to hold the title of a “representative of the people”. And so as long as the republican party is there to catch the democratic party when it falls, and as long as the democratic party is then there in the future to catch the republican party when it falls, we will always have the same two party’s in office (which are just one party role-playing like professional wrestlers as good and evil – depending on what your perspective of good and evil is). It is a slight of hand trick that will continue to ensure the right-left paradigm stays in power by manipulating the perseptions of the voting public.

So one could put forth here that your vote doesn’t really count, unless you use it to vote out the two-party system by voting for a third party. But the media has manipulated you into thinking that voting for anybody but a democrat or republican is foolhardy. This is the paradigm we must all break out of if we are to ever be a free society.

18) Charities and foundations are grass-roots organizations run by good caring people – The Cancer Society was founded by none other than John D. Rockefeller. The US President only earns $400K ($200K as recently as Pres. Clinton) while the C.E.O. of the Red Cross earns approximately $565K, even though this person has “done little work in the primary mission of the Red Cross: disaster relief” and “will face a steep learning curve”.

Foundations, Charities, Associations, and Organizations are Corporations! Though billed as non-profits, the amount of money brought in by these foundations is staggering. When corporations donate to such things as Red Cross Haiti relief, they are not donating to the people of Haiti, but rather to the corporation of the Red Cross. In return, these corporations get no-bid contracts from foundations like the Red Cross. The board of directors for the Red Cross are the who’s who of agri-business, construction, contracting, banking, infrastructure, and other for-profit corporations. And while the Red Cross is indeed a non-profit, it gives this money away to it’s board of director’s companies, as well as paying them a ridiculous salary. So the majority of the money that you donate to these “charities” never reaches the people you believe it will help.

19) The nightly news is comprised of independant jounalism you can trust – When a news story is produced, it is writen in a way so as to be usable in all markets. It is then sent to each affiliate news station across the country, to be recorded by the local newscaster as if it was their own story. Meanwhile, on every other news station across America, the same story is being screened by different newscasters reading the same thing verbatim – but attaching thier name to the end of the story. This is media. It is entertainment. It is hypnotic. But it is not truth. It is a set of meticulously researched standards and practices employed to mentally labotomize you from discovering the true nature of your world and your “government”.

Can You Support The Troops Without Supporting The War?


“I don’t support the war, but I support the troops.”

She said it smugly and with an unaccountable confidence. For a moment I actually imagined that she had thought long and hard about what she was saying and understood its implications. She was convinced that it was somehow reasonable to be against the war, while conversely being in some surreal acknowledgment of the validity of the actions of the soldiers being used to fight in that war.

“Mom,” I said in an unbelieving tone, “Do you have any idea what that even means?”

“Huh?”

So, what does this phrase mean anyway: I don’t support the war… but I support the troops?

Well, this is the question I am going to attempt to answer here. It is a statement of passion and of fact. It is also as contradictory of an assertion as I have ever heard in my life!

First, let’s break this statement up into three parts and examine how these two declarations correspond with each other:

1)    ‘I don’t support the war.’ – This is a very cut and dry sentence. It translates very easily. Whoever says this probably does not feel that the war is relevant and/or that it is not worth the cost, both financially and in the number of human lives being lost. It can be emotionally driven. It can be logically driven. It can be intellectually driven. It is at least a somewhat educated response to a situation that, in the eyes of the person who says it, does not believe that war is either justified or necessary for the reasons it is being fought.

2)    ‘I support the troops.’ – Once again, this is a very cut and dry sentence. It translates fairly easily. Whoever says this believes that our men and women in the military should have the equipment, medical care, training, and funding to make sure that they are protected and comfortable, and to ensure that their job be both honorable and justifiable. It is a confirmation of faith that the troops are pursuing in good conscience the freedom of our nation, and helping to free others. It can be emotionally driven. It can be logically driven. It can be intellectually driven. And it can be at least somewhat of an educated response to the fact that our boys and girls in the military are in harms way and should be protected by having the necessary tools to do their jobs. It is also if I may, a statement that one supports the actions of the troops: a statement of faith, honor and justification for their occupation of a foreign country and for the assault, imprisonment, and killing of its people (including civilian men, women and children).

3)    ‘But’ – In the dictionary, this word means: however, although, other than, except, excluding, and save for. It is used as a connecting word to express conditions or reasons why a previous statement is not quite accurate or complete.

On the surface, these seem like two wonderful concepts. And separately, they express both the patriotism and the will and opinion of the majority of our citizenry. But now, let’s put them back together and examine what one phrase means when preceded by the other.

I don’t support the war, but… I support the troops.

Is it just me… or does this statement ultimately boil down to a paradox? Other words that come to mind: inconsistent, illogical, irrational, ironic, incongruous, incompatible, absurd, contradictory, opposite, unsound, odd, and just plain stupid.

These two concepts are noble in and of themselves. But like oil and water, air and pollution, church and state… They do not belong in the same sentence. What does this statement mean? Well, first let’s examine the war itself:

The war (occupation) in Iraq and Afghanistan is one of the most horrific human rights violations and war crimes in our history. The fact that many thousands of American troops have been killed in the Middle East has been plastered all over media headlines, all of the time (some Veterans groups estimate that there are over 70,000 U.S. deceased when taking into consideration deaths in V.A. hospitals following combat, post-traumatic suicide, and whether or not our soldiers were shot in the back or the front of the head). But what is rarely talked about are the well over 1 million innocent Iraqi, Afghani, and now Pakistani men, women, and children who have been murdered in the name of false democracy, and the tens of millions who have been displaced as a result of our so-called humanitarian efforts in the Middle-East. We all know that the government lied about Iraq harboring weapons of mass destruction. We all should know by know that oil and the control of it’s distribution is the reason we are in the Middle East. We know that Osama Bin Laden lived in Afghanistan, not Iraq. And we now know that our troops are guarding the poppy fields in Afghanistan to ensure mass production for U.S. and world consumption of government controlled opium products, including many common opiate-based pharmaceuticals, anti-depressants, anti-anxieties, and the highly addictive and illegal street drug heroin. Yet even against our most logical sense of reasoning, most of us still hold on to the preposterous theory that a guy, hiding out in a bunch of caves with no electricity and virtually no support, masterminded a plot to crash airplanes into the most highly guarded section of the United States’ airspace, systematically fooling N.O.R.A.D. for the first time in history into thinking it was only a drill, and then escaping the clutches of what is supposed to be the best trained army in the world for the past 8 years. Talk about a conspiracy theory… This is so absurd that I can hardly write it without laughing! The men and women responsible for it are still in power, despite the fact that overwhelming evidence is easily found in books, the internet, radio, and even on mainstream television, all showing a massive conspiracy and cover-up on the part of this government and all of its acronymic organizations.

Watch these documentaries on Youtube and Google video for free for more information:

911: Blueprint For Truth (Architects and Engineers for 911 truth)
Loose Change: Final Cut
9/11 Mysteries
Zeitgeist (part 1)
Zeitgeist Addendum (part 2)

And now back to the original question. What does this statement mean anyway: ‘I don’t support the war, but I support the troops.’

Well, it could be the most potent marketing strategy ever conceived, complete with yellow ribbons, tea-shirts, and wristbands. Even if we say we don’t support the war, we have all been duped into saying we support the troops. For, if we don’t support the troops we would be evil, un-American, and unpatriotic. These are the names we’re told to call each other as we self-police ourselves and keep one another in line.

And so the conundrum now presents itself, sinister and ugly as it is. The moral of the story is this…

→ The brainwashed, media-driven American people are unwittingly, and quite submissively forced to support the war, because they support the troops. Brilliant!

What are we thinking… and what do people mean when they say it?

Well, I’m not sure anybody has thought this through. It is just mindlessly repeated as a parrot might squawk a phrase it has heard over and over and over again. But in this case, we are the animals being trained by the repetitious media on our televisions, in our movies, and on our radios. I can only assume that people mean that they don’t support torture, but they support the torturers. They don’t support murder, but support the murderers. They believe that molestation and rape is bad, unless our soldiers are using it as a tool to terrorize “insurgents” and their families into submission. They don’t believe war is the answer, but they do not question the architects of that war or their methods. They don’t support nation building, but support the demolition and construction teams, and the vastly expensive no-bid contracts given to private corporations who are making fortunes from the American tax payers by wasting and spending as much money as they possibly can in their “cost-plus” compensation plans after contributing heavily to the pre-determined winners of political campaigns. (See the documentary: Iraq For Sale)

This is absolute hypocrisy mixed with a heaping portion of escapism topped off with a healthy dose of ignorance.

Here is just one small example of how much we actually support the troops:

There are over 200,000 homeless war veterans in the United States.

“On every night, 200,000 people who have put on the uniform and served this country sleep homeless on the streets,” said Aaron Glantz, a journalist who has been covering the stories of US military vets returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. (Source: Pacifica, Middle-East Online)

How is this in anyway supporting the troops?

Most good citizens who hear information such as this will inherently just go on with their incessant consuming, truly enjoying their ignorance while thousands more innocents die at the hands of the troops they unwittingly support: buying their sweatshop-manufactured clothing and enjoying imported foodstuffs packaged in poisonous plastic, ready-to-heat-and-eat containers, while the economy of the country of export enjoys mass starvation and food riots as they fall victim to the debt-for-land and debt-for-oil schemes of our illegitimate government. Is this the American dream: pure, unadulterated gluttony and ignorance?
For those who still believe that we are in Iraq and Afghanistan for altruistic and patriotic reasons, here is a little known fact that might change your mind: Osama Bin Laden, the supposed mastermind behind 9/11, is indeed on the United States most wanted terrorist list. But never once in the eight years since September 11, 2001 has he ever been charged with any crime related to that day. That’s because there is absolutely evidence linking this man to the crimes of 9/11. Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself… On the governments own website (Go to: http://www.fbi.gov/wanted/topten/fugitives/laden.htm).

So, do you support the war… despite the fact that it is being fought under false pretenses and government manufactured terrorism?
Do you support the troops… who are killing innocent men, women, and children every day while ‘just following orders’ and then killing themselves because they see the faces of their innocent victims in their own daydreams and nightmares?

I hope that you can open your hearts and expand your minds past the empty tube in your living room and start to realize that, through heavy repetition and marketing strategies, you have been sold an idea that doesn’t make sense: that it is your patriotic duty to support our troops who are deployed in an illegal war that you do not support in the first place! Never be afraid to seek or speak the truth. For who else but a politician and a priest could have made up the rule that speaking about politics and religion in mixed company should be avoided. Get angry, speak out and inform others that these occupations are against everything the principles and doctrines of this country, its founders, and its Constitution stand for.

And the next time you are asked what you think about the war and occupation of Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Pakistan, do your fellow Americans and Middle-Easterners a favor… be original and think before you speak!
