Like it or not, the United States of America is sliding into a miasma of the worst kind. This started happening before the Bush Administration to be sure, but this administration is using it to it’s advantage and our extreme disadvantage.
The United States is now run by a despotic administration. I’ve said this before and it bears repeating again and again. Through the actions of those despots we now have a fascist government running the show.
Check out this interview of author Naomi Wolf. She wrote the book “End of America”.
When you’re done with that sign up for the American Freedom Campaign. We need to rise up against the misuse of governmental power.
As Wolf says in the interview, the McCarthyism of the 50’s will look like the good old days if w3e let the Bush administration or ANY administration continue on the same path.
I’ve already told you all one of the things we need to do, because while Wolf correctly identifies all the things that slide us into fascism, she never identifies the source.
The source is unchecked corporate power over our government. If you read this blog you already know what need to change in order to break the stranglehold of corporations over both our government and ourselves. Modify the constitution to specifically exclude the enumerated rights to corporations.
Read the book “The Arms of Krupp 1587-1968” by William Manchester to see just one of the corporate interests the pushed WW I and WW II Germany into warfare. You’ll see clearly what I’m getting at here.
Then step back and examine who stands to profit most from running a government. If you guessed corporations and their owners and shareholders you get a gold star. In most any wrongdoing if you step back and think about who benefits most you’ll find your perpetrator.

Vietnam all over again. That’s what we all think the Iraq mess is turning into.
You have to ponder the question of who benefits most from warfare. As always, just follow the money. And if you ever have the chance, read “The Arms of Krupp 1587-1968” by William Manchester. It’s still in print though I have the original hardcover version given to me by a friend. It traces the development of the Krupp concern in Germany and how instrumental it was in World War II. And Krupp isn’t dead and gone yet, it’s part of ThyssenKrupp, the elevator people among other things. Even the logo for the company retains the three interlocked circles of Krupp with the arch of Thyssen.
I suppose some day someone will write “The Arms of Halliburton”. It’ll be quite a tale but where it took Krupp 400+ years to build up enough influence to propel a country into war, Halliburton did it in less than a century.
Back to the original subject, the other day I was with Keyron at one of his friends homes. We got on the topic of her son in law who already did one tour of duty in Iraq and now they want him back for another. The only problem is that while he was in Iraq he took two rounds to the back, and one round pretty much destroyed his right hand. He’s also suffering an extreme case of PTSD (It used to be called Shell Shocked back in the WW II era).
This kid is in no shape to go back to Iraq. But they’re calling. At last call he’s delayed until January and I hope our congressional representatives stop this craziness and pull our troops the hell out of Iraq. It’s evident that we’re no longer welcome there, yet the war hawks (corporations) don’t want the gravy train to stop just yet.
It’s part of the reason we’re paying close to $3 a gallon for gasoline. Yes, the military runs on dinosaur juice just like we do, and they get first cut.
So here we have it, it’s windfall profit time primarily for Halliburton but for the oil companies too. Yes it is about the oil but not the way you’d expect it to be. Take it a step further and it’s all about the cash. And one doesn’t have to look too far to see exactly who is connected to this in the Bush administration, it’s Dick Cheney.
So if you want to continue to see men in the prime of their lives get chewed up by the military, stay complacent. Just remember that the payback is coming as those men come home missing limbs and with their psyche fractured.
