Merc’s, contractors, killers for hire . . . What ever you call them . . . And our Senators thank their CEO for their service to our country . . . Iraq has 180,000 contractors. There are more contractors than American service men and women. Before Iraq is over they will have spent a trillion dollars . . . Not a billion but a trillion . . .
And our service men and women get s**t, but we pay contractors, 1200 dollars a day . . . And the CEO said nothing but good things about our service people . . . Sure he would, wouldn’t you if your organization was being paid so well . . .
What if we had 180,000 advocates for peace instead of military contractors? We must want war, don’t you think?
What if we had 180,000 Gandhi’s? What if we truly did what we say, war only as a last means, what if?
I wonder if how many missionaries 1200 dollars a day would buy. Twelve, thirty . . . I’m sure it would be a lot.
Blackwater, Amway’s big brother . . .
I have a fear. When I was young I watched the men in white shirts, black suits and those narrow black ties, spew their lies . . . From the fear of the Communist Threat to the lies of Tonkin . . . Somehow everyone thinks it was better then. It wasn’t, fear was everywhere . . .
Nothing ever changes, we just keep putting new idiots in charge . . . Does it make any sense to vote in a President that has virtually no experience? Of course it doesn’t . . . Business would never put a child in command of their super corporations, why do we?
