$ New Military Jet=$600,000 Home For EVERY U.S. Homeless Person

Thread: 

Robbie Couch in an article on HuffPo recently asserted:

The $400 billion program to create a fleet of F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jets, which, as The Hill points out, is seven years behind schedule and chronically plagued with misfortunes and incompetencies, could have housed every homeless person in the U.S. with a $600,000 home.

Scapegoating Bergdahl for Unpopularity of US War Crimes

Justin Raimando in “Hating on Bowe Bergdahl” broke me out of my cognitive dissonant nausea over the trial by media, chicken hawks, political gamespeople, lynch-mob/firing squad jingoists of the recently rescued American POW from Afghanistan. Raimando refreshingly writes: Read below the fold...

Even a small regional nuclear war would kill at least 2 billion people all around the world, especially children, as food prices skyrocketed and billions became unable to afford food.

I thought I should post this study

Although historically European elites have traditionally used war among themselves as a means of relieving social pressures for real change, and stirring up nationalism, that approach has become too risky with the advent of nuclear weapons.

‘Always Look on the Bright Side of War’ Part 1 of 2

I have spent the last week chewing on my fist, reading dozens of impassioned articles on alternative cyber media at the same time listening to contradictory and relentless government propaganda-laced (-saturated) mainstream media about the Ukraine situation.

I am trying to cope with my personal shock and awe. Read below the fold...

William Rivers Pitt: Obama/Congress & a 10-Deployment, Maimed Vet

I came across an article by William Rivers Pitt entitled “The Sugar Makes the Poison Taste Sweet”. I am posting a powerful excerpt from it in which Pitt lets his anger rip about the shameless exploitation of a 10-deployment, maimed vet by Obama at the end of his 2014 State of the Union Address.

Obama, the Liar, Spins the SOTU

I didn’t watch Obama’s State of the Union address on television tonight. My stomach was not strong enough. (Reminiscent of how Bush’s TV appearances also induced nausea in me.)

Just a little while ago I abandoned the balance of my cappuccino in an upper East Side diner because Obama’s voice from a wall TV screen in the back ambushed me. The manager/owner hustled over to the front cash register to process my check.

“I came out tonight to ESCAPE Obama!” I scolded

He wagged a finger in my face angrily. “Hey, I’m just watching to see his nose grow!” Read below the fold...

Jesus vs. Obama

In his book, People of the Lie, Scott Peck maintains that the best way for us human beings to fight evil in our world is “to keep a gentle place of shelter for Jesus in our hearts.”

Jesus promoted love. Peace. Empathy. Good faith.

I resent when the pro-war corporate media labels us American citizens “war-weary.” As if we are and were okay with war but since there have been so many only NOW are we reluctant to have our country go to war. Read below the fold...
