I don't know about you but as, I watch this documentary, it makes me ill. Not because of the contents, I think Matthews and his crew did a great job but because it made me realize just how many immature and easily persuadable people live amongst us. Watching the so called leaders of this New Right-wing spew forth their incongruities and misconceptions while giving the impression that they are actually encouraging their sycophants to get angry enough to commit crimes, makes you cringe with disgust. What are these people searching for? Why don’t they understand that what they demand makes no sense at all?

No Government in our lives they shout. No oversights, they bellow. Then when things aren't going their way, they take to the streets and yell “We want the government to put a stop to reproduction choice! We want the government to make Big Oil pay (yeah right, for its failures due to no oversights)! We want the government to step in and destroy certain civil rights (Not our civil rights, just those we deem intolerable like Homosexuals being allowed the right to marry or Gays having the right to serve openly in the military).” What a bunch of naïve hypocrites! If they are able to gather enough strength and become powerful, America will once again, in the eyes of the world, become the buffoon it was during the Dubya years.

With seemingly EVERY DAY in crisis mode, a story slipped out of the Pentagon a few days ago and has been buried in the oily slime of BP's corruption. Afghanistan is sitting on over a TRILLION DOLLARS of mineral wealth and apparently we've been using taxpayer dollars for the last decade or two and with renewed vigor over the last 9 years, mapping out an exploitation strategy. For a long time, I just thought Afghanistan was only important as a "pipeline" route, but it appears there are vast fortunes to be made with a host of minerals, includings, iron, gold... and lithium. One Pentagon official said this may be the Saudi Arabia of lithium producers. If there was ever an illusion since the Citizens United case that our Government has merely become the tool of Corporate hegomony... the skies of deceipt should now be abundandly clears.
