I have to reblog this because it has to do more with a state of mind than politics. Yes, this goes way beyond politics: it addresses the brainwashing of a nation and of large parts of the First World, or should I say the “Empire” as well. Bombs before bread; cash before children: we have our priorities set, and as we said in my days, “My mind’s made up, don’t confuse me with facts.”



1million 400 thousand dollars for ONE cruse missile and we sent 105 cruse missiles into Syria to destroy three supposedly chemical sites.

$1,400,000.00 times 105 = 147million dollars divided by 3 = $49,000,000. per target area.

And because 42 people in Syria were gassed by chemical weapons, so they say?

42 divided into 147,000,000.00 = $3,500,000.00 per gassed person.

Wow, and did it bring them back to life?

So WHO exactly profited?

Now when you look at the poor in this country both parties are not even close to outstanding in assisting the poor much at all.

But it is the Republican’ts who yell loudest against the poor. Yet few in either party ever question paying $1,400,000.00 for a Tomahawk Missile and then to blow off 105 of them and all prance around like something of importance has taken place is pathetic.

And then Trump-Puppet-Of-The-Neo-cons (TPOTN) acts…

    ‘ My minds made up don’t confuse me with facts ‘ and then you continue to present some facts and statistical ones at that . They are the most dangerous ones you know the old saying ‘ there are lies ,damn lies and statistics’ . Let old Kerosene try his hand at a few:
    Coca – Cola has made a commitment to spend $3.5 billion in 2014 on big ads. Now where will that money come from? The average US citizen drinks 403 Coke products a year; meanwhile back at the ranch people are going hungry .
    There is a Christian obsession that human life is without value and yet governments and through them all of us set values on it every day, but we do even more we value some far more that others.
    ‘ Ah Love could thou and I with Fate conspire
    To grasp this sorry Scheme of Things entire,
    Would we not shatter it to bits– and then
    ‘Re- mould it nearer to the Hearts Desire ‘

    I follow Tubularsock on another blog ( and this is one of his better posts. They are all good. I appreciate the re-blog. It doesn’t surprise me that you like him, too.

    God knows I love hyperbole. Missed the whole point. What business is Putin in? What business is the upper echelon of America in? What happens when an oil producing region is destabilzed? If you need to go the gas station to get your answer, you are excused. All the random name calling bullshit is no better than Trump’s own tweets. Selling factionalization with sensationalism is what should be criminalized. My .02.

    “Can’t pass up all that luscious sunshine, the cycling, kayaking…” Man, all those things sound much better than sitting a room writing! I wanted to acknowledge your comment because I removed that post already. Thanks for popping in. Fight boredom keep writing. That’s my new challenge.
