Thanks for the advice 50's.If only 'IKE' were around to see what the 'Military Industrial Complex' and the 'Hostile Corporate Takeover' of America have accomplished by criminalizing the poor created by their greed..He would find him his self without a flag to stand on. Patton was an unrepentant killer born in the sand box of his boyish dreams.Soon the country will abolish the Presidency,(needless to say why) and we can have a CHAIRMAN like our owners in the Peoples Republic.

Oelwyn.. I have an affinity for your views and agree with our history of exploitation.. at the end of the day,however, I can't really buy into the "america is to blame for everything" narrative. Many years ago the US Govt. made a good trade with me.. they made me give back my m16 but they gave me a oiece of paper that said I did not have to kill anybody anymore.. not a bad deal

Now take them to a VA Hospital and let them see with their own eyes and hear with their own ears the price of "IMPERIAL WAR" and EXPLOITATION of distant Nations.Ask their children,wives and mothers.
