I now feel really stupid for not understanding the ‘power’ the tea baggers would end up with playing ‘the game.’ (Politics) I did the math wrong in a big way. “Americans are stupid” plain and simple on this debt dumbness deal. So if stupidity is man’s deadliest weapon, his most devastating epidemic, his costliest luxury what does that say about us Americans? What can be more characteristic of our mankind than the fact that Roget’s Thesaurus devotes six columns to the synonyms, verbs, nouns and adjectives of ‘stupidity’ while “wisdom” occupies hardly one? Oscar Wilde’s is correct in saying, “There is no sin except stupidity.” Will America wake up from its ‘stupid stupor?’ That is the question. Who’s pulling the strings here? We know who the boys in the back room are. So that’s not the issue. Steve Stills sang it to us back in 1967 while stoned out of his Gourd I might add. Remember, There’s something happening here. What it is ain’t exactly clear? We need a Tom Paine shout out, to the winter soldiers and concerned citizens. We need ‘we the people,’ yet again in our history. History has as much to do with ‘now’ as it does about the past or future, right? Too many of our Reps are nothing more than whores for the corps. “Corp Whores” at that. Have Americans have been deceived and overtaken by Corp Coup. It started with Nixon and Reagan set it loose. Bush nailed it and Obama has doubled down. Hope is now a dirty word, Obama’s ‘rope a dope. Is there a pill we can take? Let’s go ask Alice…”

How Do We Take Back the Military From the Billionaire Owned Military Industrial Complex?

Thom plus logo Democrats (Bernie & Lee) in the senate proposed legislation saying what the Constitution already says: that Trump can't go to war with Iran without congressional authorization. Every Republican on the committee, except Rand Paul, voted against it.
