Our interventionist foreign policy is the gift that keeps on giving. Is there any Middle Eastern country that we haven’t screwed up yet? Oh yeah – Iran. Give Obama and McCain time. That will be the clusterfuck that destroys the world.

A bunch of fucking Obama-hating Republicans, I tell you!!  /sarc


Those pics are about the funniest thing I've seen in some time.  The Egyptians get it.  Why can't the majority of Amurkans???  Maybe cuz they're all too happy to get some handouts (individual OR corporate)?

Former UN Ambassador Susan Rice, who began a new role as National Security Adviser on Monday tries to defuse things and take the edge off of the whole Snowden/ USA Global Spy & Command and Control Network media circus thingee....

Take it away Susan...


"I think the United States of America is and will remain the most influential, powerful and important country in the world, the largest economy, and the largest military, [with] a network of alliances, values that are universally respected."

O.K. so basically just another giant Fuck You to the planet then...

Except when everyone hates you... Being the most powerful don't mean shit.

Its called alliances.  Piss off enough people and see what happens.

Its all built on promises, this whole fraudulent system.  Promised pensions, promised promotions, promised benefits, promised economic growth, promised promised promised.  Any one believing these promises (like that SS will exist in 30 years) at this point is definitely the Greatest Fool.

My father, uncles, their father,and his father all fought and bled for this country.

But THIS is not the country they fought for.

Our country, our nation, our self has been hijacked and turned into SHIT.

I am glad to see that foreigners see us for the evil that we have become. I hope that we as lazy fat stupid distracted Americans will one day see it too. and do something about it.

Dear god! ....I sound like ananonymous.

This will become like the clapping research. Now it's just a few countries clapping, soon more will pick up the applause, and then a thundering ovation against the U.S.  All it takes is each of those countries internally aligning against the U.S. and suddenly we find ourselves without full military support, then without trade support, then without diplomatic support and finally, without dollar reserve support.

When obama was first elected and ran around bowing and scraping, he thought diplomatic politeness was approval. As time went on even butt heads like Chavez scorned his antics. The Russians have contempt for his incompetent foolish actions even if it benefits them. He is a tee ball player dealimg with the major leagues.

Priceless. Wonder if we can import these protesters on our streets because Billy Joe Bob is too busy drinking beer & watch'n football while our Republic burns to the ground.

Funny how the rest of the world knows that we fund, arm & train the same terrorist AL-CIA-duh organizations they claim to be protecting us from yet the sleeping US sheeple do not.

It has always been a source of amazement to the non-US world how the USoA maintains a world wide military Empire, complete with gunboat diplomacy and pax Americana, and the American public remain blissfully unaware of it.

Millions upon millions of slaves worldwide, working at gunpoint to make Americans rich, well fed, well clothed, with the latest knick knacks at bargain prices, and never a word of thanks, the only acknowledgement that they even exist comes in the form of 'lets bomb them back to the stone age.'

Isn't it simply amazing that the human mind is capable of describing a nation that has:

willfully and knowingly destroyed it's economy... spied on it's allies... tortured it's prisoners... secretly confiscated it's citizens rights... refuses to prosecute it's most financially successful criminals and generally (through the self-serving and tireless workings of it's lauded politicians) has sold it's soul to the highest bidder...

As 100% power purity and goodness?

Escape to where though?

It's pretty much the same or heading in that direction everywhere you look these days... just some places are taking longer than others.

Find some land with water and some low maintenance friends and enjoy the show.

Alternatively go help out a farmer with harvesting his crop this fall... the pay sucks but the work is extremely physically and psychologically fulfilling... and the friendships you make will be real ones with real people that may prove helpful or even more one day...

No use getting too upset about it anyway since there is absolutely nothing that can be done at this point... other than educate educate educate... (yourself and others)

+1. Im getting old, but as a young man i did this kind of work. It will be hard, but i can do it again.

Sadly, most of us Americans have never actually worked. I dont think we have in us what we used to have.

We are the next roman empire, enjoy the collapse. This is gonna get ugly.

pretty much my plan Zero. I have turned six neighbors into food growers. Soon I will move and try to buy 10 - 20 acres. In the meantime I study permaculture and water capture. Hope it helps. And your right, screw the money, its screwed anyway. Doing something concrete, tangible and healthy is satisfying. SO is the hard work.

DJ - doing something similar here many years now.  I work a little bit every day, planting, moving timber, creating swales.  Food, health, stress-free happiness is very good. 

Watch out for rising land taxes consuming your future. 

I saw a great post once about how to select and move onto .gov land w/o anybody the wiser.  For example, sometimes government and private parcels are intermixed.

All the best with your endeavor.

And at least one small part of the planet replies in fury.  From Walid Shoebat's blog--and pay special attention to the video from Port Said, where the rioters pay special attention to a car festooned with an Obama sticker (scroll down):



Shoebat is a Christian convert, hence the bible reference. He is also known as Theodore, and has another website, which had a stunner today as well.

your second link is festooned with amrkna symbolism, and the words

The true nature of Islam is mob violence, ritual human sacrifice, cannibalism, hence the results of heresy.

more artificial sides against humanity, in the guise of religion - where's your Prince of Peace?

divide and rule, centuries of distractions while the same elites get fat.
