Guest Post: Egyptians Love Us For Our Freedom

Submitted by Jim Quinn of The Burning Platform blog,

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.

15 Photos From the Tahrir Square Protests You’ll Never See In Legacy Media.

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)?

"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."

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.

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.

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.'

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)

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.

It's extra interesting to consider that no one ever even gets to a ballot without doing the nasty dance and signing the non-disclosure agreements with the owners.

Last election, my wife did a write in vote for RP. I wrote in Mickey Mouse.

Did you happen to check the voting record afterward?  I wrote in "No Confidence" several election cycles back - which is different than simply not voting, and my write in was not counted... Last time I voted!

Beats the disdain get when I explain my reasoning to people in real life.  Confusion, angst, then usually a quick "If you don't like it..."

And criminal too if the goverment is criminal.

I.e. if you are voting for capos in the mob then even if you are not extorting, stealing or killing, you are still participating in a criminal enterprise with your vote and are therfore complicit in their crimes.

Voting is worse than that. It's saying loudly and clearly, "I not only consent to this government, I want to use it for my own personal gain, to the direct material detriment of others, I don't care, I gotsta gets me mine!".

A bunch of greedy fools fighting over everyone else's property. Brilliant system.

voting keeps your mind withIn their paradigm, delaying any real-isations that might occur.

Strange, I didn't see any pictures of the natives burning US flags or wearing those silly vests.

The Egyptians are different than Americans.  They stand up to Islamists like O and Morsi while Americans watch O-TV and O-Hollywood which fawns over the islamist.   Most Americans wear diapers in front of their O-TV so they don't miss any of the brainwashing.

If you watch TV or Hollywoods shit then you support it.

Whatdya' mean OK?  Nobody friggin asked me!  It is NOT OK.  It merely is.  But lacing all this together - the increasing global disdain for the USA, its government, and its people has been percolating for decades as various administrations destabilized whole regions of the globe in their quest for an ever more powerful empire.  And Snowden's little tattle that the NSA is Big Brother and spies on everyone seems to have put the pressure cooker on high.  My sympathies are with the Egyptians, seeking democracy.  It is simply fitting irony that the U.S. is currently supporting a theocratic dictator and is widely seen as an enemy of democracy.  It is you know.

He was designed to be impervious to criticism from the white male (TWM).  You know, because TWM is racist.  So we can immediately dismiss all criticism coming from that sector of society.  Oh, and they hate Bernanke, so that makes TWM anti-semitic.
