"Raw capitalism is dead." -- Henry Paulson, U.S. Treasury secretary
"Can't we just all go out and say things are OK?" -- President Bush, to congressional leaders during bailout negotiations
I'm not much of an Army Times reader, but after reading that a brigade was shipping from Iraq in October to serve as "an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks" in the homeland right before the election, my antennae perked up. Same as they did when I read that an electoral college doomsday scenario exists in which Dick Cheney casts the deciding vote that gives McCain-Palin the White House.
That is, if Cheney and Bush don't take it for themselves. That may sound like fantasy, but don't kill the messenger. They are all strands of the Gordian knot the Bush administration has tied around the neck of the American people for the last two presidential terms, best represented today by the failed bailout of banks, brokers and other complicit parties that have since jacked the American people out of trillions. And while the Army Times revelation or election doomsday may turn out to be paranoia rather than prescience, the evidence just isn't there.
1) Neither Obama or Mccain deserve the presidency after voting yes to an abomination of a bill that 90% OF THE US POPULATION WAS AGAINST!!! Our voice really doesn't matter at all to the elitist scumbags! And people wonder why I've always held the attitude that voting really doesn't matter because none of the politicians (with a small few like Ron Paul or Mary Kaptur or Stallion Cornell) actually give a crap about the rest of us or what our wishes are!
2) The brigade is supposedly going through exercises in Georgia. There were similar exercises elsewhere over the summer in another state, and then I believe that unit was shipped to Iraq or Afghanistan or some such to put what they learned to use. There is a topic about this on http://www.abovetopsecret.com
. Now that the elitist pigs have sold us to foreign interests and wooden arrow makers, you probably have nothing to worry about as far as martial law being declared.
