    Sometimes things take on a life of their own. No one wanted things to turn out this way. Where do we go from here? That depends on the people becoming self aware.

    From my observation bread and butter issues overwhelms war as a national business at this juncture. Five years has passed since the last recession and people have yet to see a light at the end of the tunnel. 40 million on foodstamps and unemployment rate is at 8.1%

    The author needs to go back to school. This article is laden with fallacies, and all throughout the article, are quotes from famous persons in eye catching fonts, as well as all the charts, and pictures. The article is not meant to convey fact, but agenda. This is just more propaganda in the guise of moral high ground, in order to appeal to emotion.

    I think the war in Afghanistan could have been handled better, but I'm not against it in any way. I don't agree with the war in Iraq, but I do agree with the Libyan campaign. Why? Because Gaddafi's time was up, he was going to die whether we participated or not, so we backed the winning team in order to ensure continued flow of resources.

    The real question is if the 'no war for oil' crowd even attempts to consider why we fight for these resources. Every day, more fat stupid slobs squeeze out more stupid fat babies, because they cram too much food into their mouths. Because these mewling, rambling cabbages of humanity are so godamned fat, they need bigger vehicles, with the ****tiest gas mileage possible, so they can drive to and from giant ****ing cities that are lit up with lights, and sensors, and cameras, and displays telling us when the next stupid fat celebrity is going to be released in other stupid fat movie about nothing. This stupid **** is everywhere, consuming ridiculous amounts of power and energy, which doesn't just magically generate itself. We also require petrochemicals to produce the tons upon tons of plastics and polymers used every day in every thing we don't even think twice about, from packaging, to synthetic fabrics stupid little teenage girls will wear once, then discard. The problem isn't Bush, or the MIC, it's the millions of greedy stupid fat ****s that eat up all these resources, both literally and figuratively, and don't give one flying **** about the consequences of their disgustingly excessive consumption. However, they have absolutely no problem bitching about the war, as long as it gives them a happy **** **** moment by being part of the largest sociopolitical circle-jerk of the 21st century.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
