Social Program Cuts? Republicans Can't Shoot Butter

Republicans to Slash Needed Domestic Programs to Fund More War and Conquest

by Jude Cowell

Since Mr. Trump and the Republicans have their knives out intending to gut social programs for the weak, ill, and aging among us while massive tax cuts are put in place for the wealthy class, a review of the History of Medicare and Medicaid seems timely. And as you know, in 1972 (under Nixon) an expansion of the social safety net was enacted to include coverage for the disabled, end-stage renal disease patients needing dialysis or a kidney transplant, and citizens age 65 and older.

But waging perpetual war for the sake of Empire is a very costly endeavor and it isn't as if the disabled, ill, and aging can or would enlist in the military, right? So did the GOP finally accept Trump as their 'outsider' president because they knew that an unprincipled man would agree to cut whatever programs they targeted? And that, after spouting campaign rhetoric that he would not cut the very programs now under the GOP knife! Not that I believed him, of course. Did you?

Always the Tiresome Trade-Off: Guns vs Butter

Photo: Paul Ryan: "We've Been Dreaming of Slashing Medicaid Since My Kegger Days"...a drunken dream? Now he's drunk with power.

Yes, with dreamy Neptune rising in his natal chart, Speaker Paul Ryan is quite a big dreamer. But do the current GOP austerity measures against the American people put you in mind of Republican President Eisenhower's famous Chance for Peace speech of 1953? Here's an excerpt:

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children." Theft. He said theft. To give the wealthy more tax cuts while harming little children.

Now Eisenhower's words contain way too vast a concept for a subjective man like Mr. Trump to grasp although certainly some Republican congress members have the mental and emotional capacity to understand that such theft from We the People will result in millions of Americans ill and starving on the streets and infecting everyone else. Plus, the US economy will suffer from the additional financial burden placed upon our families. (No, churches cannot do it all). But that's where lack of conscience and principles come in--when politicians plainly show that no, they are not their brother's keepers.

Now I don't mean that the US isn't worse off economically than we've been led to believe these last decades and my suspicion is that this is very much the case. 'White collar' theft abounds, as you know, and as noted, waging global war and acting as World Cop takes a whole lot of filthy lucre.

However, the austerity path of heartlessness the GOP demands for America is not the only path to take. Even if it's the global bankers' * 'big picture commands a certain course of action, little option to do otherwise' offer-they-can't-refuse situation that our compromised, bribed, and threatened 'representatives' on Capitol Hill are following because the 'otherwise' involves too much risk for their own hides to take. Apparently the extra added 'benefit' of population control (a la Ayn Rand) seems to suit the Republicans (and their enablers) just fine--as long as they and their loved ones remain unaffected. (They hope!)

Well, thanks for letting me vent. The current news on Medicaid and other financial cuts enrages me on behalf of the common good and for the sake of my native country (which I'm very partial to!) I must vehemently dissent against the Republican austerity agenda and sorry-a**ed war economy which are suggested by the cruelty and hardship potentials of year 2020.


Here's an audio excerpt (under 3 mins) of Eisenhower himself delivering his Chance for Peace speech on April 16, 1953. Now that soup lines across America will come into vogue again, it's obvious that someone didn't listen to Ike's counsel and preferred to sell out our nation to the highest bidder.

* the oh-so-rational 'new world order' planets of The Enlightenment, Uranus and Neptune, met three times in Great Conjunction all through 1993 at or near '18 Capricorn' so that a current midpoint picture has formed via transiting Pluto: the big picture commands a certain course of action, very little option to do otherwise.' (Noel Tyl, Solar Arcs). And that's no matter who must pay the price--saboteur Pluto of the Underworld doesn't care.

#SyriaStrikes Aftermath: What We Know So Far - The Corbett Report (w/ Eclipses)

April 10, 2017: The following Corbett Report is posted to Stars Over Washington for your consideration:

Here's a link to The Corbett Report transcript if you prefer.


Have a look at the Syria Assad Coup 1970 Horoscope if you wish and one factor you'll notice is that its Prenatal Eclipse Saros Series (10th house), the 8 South, manifested in August 1970 @8Vir04 prior to the November 13, 1970 coup, opposite the currently in-effect Solar Eclipse of February 26, 2017 @8Pis12 in the 19 South series (a lucky break or win).

Appropriately describing a violent military coup are the themes of 8 South: loss, separation, physical injury and strain. (Brady's Predictive Astrology). An 8 South Solar Eclipse last occurred during Bush-Cheney on September 22, 2006 @29Virgo, a critical degree that conjoins the 00Libra Midheaven in the natal horoscope of America that I most often use (July 4, 1776 5:09 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA which puts Cardinal World Points on the MC-IC axis. I save America's Scorpio Rising chart (ruled by Mars and Pluto) for spying, surveillance, military, and corporate or Big Business matters. And sometimes for the occult and esoteric issues of our Founding Fathers (whether Freemason, Rosicrucian, Illuminati, or a combination). You may disagree but there it is.

The World According to Trump - a Max Igan broadcast

Despotic Trumpism continues to garner outrage and resistance in the US and across the globe--and Mr. Trump has yet to pass his one-month milestone pontificating from the White House. Here's a broadcast from activist and world citizen Max Igan whose Surviving the Matrix series may often be found here on SO'W:

American Leaders Joke about Dead Veterans and Children - video

Is this video collection of clips too controversial for Google to allow here? Perhaps yet censorship of this video and topic would be extremely hypocritical since wars of conquest and the mass misery they bring to innocent people ought to be the real controversy. Such wars certainly are the real crime of global proportions. Maybe the 2016 presidential candidates should be more forthcoming concerning their White House war plans--and who advises or will advise them--though I suspect most Americans can winnow the anti-societal psychopaths from the very few decent:

Ignore The Naysayers: Single Payer Healthcare Is A Great Idea - video (+ RNC 2016)

Concerning 2016 candidate Bernie Sanders' proposal for health insurance coverage for all Americans, here is Farron Cousins of Ring of Fire Radio:

Campaign 2016

Perhaps you've noticed lately the establishment (ex: Hillary) bringing out the 'Bernie Sanders' plans won't work in the real world' attack in the 2016 Campaign but I assert that the "real world" they refer to is nothing but the false reality we've been scammed into by power elite plutocrats who hate the idea of a government by, for, and of The People! That's a government where resources are used for the needs of the people, not for waging more war and implementing global conquest.

And if you don't vote on November 8th and a Republican enters the White House on January 20, 2017, we can wave buh-bye to any hope of returning the US government to the people once new plutocrat SCOTUS Justices are installed. Now I realize it may not be much better if a Democratic or Social Democratic president selects new Justices when the time comes but it will definitely be worse if a Republican president chooses them.

And please remember that the RNC 2016 Capricorn Full Moon in July conjoins US natal Pluto with the Sun in Cancer opposing our national Pluto which denotes a time and event of power plays, forceful intimidation, and lots of media coverage.

"Who Is Albert Pike?" (video) with a view on Pike's natal planets

General Albert Pike December 29, 1809: Jupiterian Plotter

by Jude Cowell

Here's a brief video concerning Albert Pike, Confederate General, major leader of Freemasons, possibly a founder of the Ku Klux Klan and member of the Knights of the Golden Circle, World War plotter and strategist, and the only Confederate General immortalized via statue in Washington DC. Attached to his controversial legacy is a creepy tale that his body lies in a vault at the Scottish Rite Temple a few blocks from the White House yet he's listed among those resting at Oak Hill Cemetery in Georgetown, DC (scroll to the letter P).

Yet bodies can be dug up and moved under cover of darkness, can't they? Thomas Paine's was! Or perhaps only Pike's skull 'graces' the Temple in DC for you know how secret organizations with visions of global power are attracted to death, skulls, and bones. No matter where his remains are located, Grand Poo Bah Pike died at age 81 and is long gone since April 2, 1891...


For more info try this interesting site with articles concerning the Illuminati, Albert Pike, his fabled 1871 letter to Mazzini in which he details plans for three World Wars in order to take over the world, and many more such controversial topics, if you get into those sorts of curiosities. Pike's letter may have been written later by unknown sources since a few of its terms were not in use until after 1871. Hmmm...if so, a fake letter full of sinister intent sounds to me like plotters plotting against a plotter!

As for Albert Pike's natal horoscope, I am reluctant to post a version of it due to his birth hour being unknown and the fact that on December 29, 1809 the Moon left late degrees of Virgo and entered Libra at 3:27:28 am LMT (using Solar Fire Gold v9 software.)

Since Luna is the lead planet of a Locomotive pattern (an indicator of executive ability and achievement--Jones) it's quite inconvenient not knowing whether natal Moon was in earthy, practical Virgo or airy, sociable Libra--one sign ruled by Mercury (in Capricorn), the other by Venus (in Sagittarius.) Both Mercury (communication, thinking, planning, travel, the teacher, writer, magician) and Venus (values, relationships, diplomacy--but also, the goddess of love and war) are interesting in the chart with Mercury conjunct his Capricorn Sun and Venus sextile Mars (in Aquarius) and possibly his chart-ruler with Libra rising. In fact, the close conjunction of Sun and Mercury supports the legend of his genius (allegedly he spoke several languages, was a teacher in his early days, and a Jupiterian figure for certain--the General, the Guru, the Priest, the Professor, the Banker, etc.) Check his photos to admire his widened girth!

As you know, using the Sabian Symbols to rectify a chart is a fascinating, time consuming task yet the symbol for '29 Virgo' (Moon?) seems to me to be appropriate for Pike's occult activities and interests: "A Man Gaining Secret Knowledge from an Ancient Scroll He Is Reading...DISCOVERY." Another curious one is '7 Capricorn' for natal Mercury: "A Veiled Prophet of Power...SUPREMACY." You may disagree as you wish for these degrees are rounded up from the 12:00 am chart until the Moon enters Libra which also moves Mercury ahead to '8 Cap'. Naturally there are many other factors to consider as well and perhaps one of you will take a little time one day and spend it with Albert's natal planets.

With Moon in Virgo, Venus May Be Chart-Ruler

Now since his natal Sun (personality) has no other major aspect to it other than the conjunction with Mercury making our picture here of Mr. Pike's character quite sparse, perhaps a few words about his Venus-Mars sextile are in order since the aspect is retained throughout the 24-hour period of his birth date. This aspect (60 degrees) between the relational Aries-Libra pair denotes a good organizer and a 'talent scout'--one who learns to use people, their talents, and resources in the best ways possible. Making necessary personal sacrifices to reach goals is indicated along with an ability to disguise aggressive tendencies though when needed, forceful assertiveness may be used to the point of bluntness.

For some people born with a Venus-Mars sextile, the 'killer instinct' can be in evidence with a strong need to be in charge. Since Pike was in charge--as a Confederate General, as a global leader of Freemasonry--I surmise that he used the opportunities and abilities contained within this sextile to much advantage. And since a determined imperative for reaching closure is also a trait of a Venus-Mars sextile person, my guess is that leaving things 'pending'---especially a 'new world order' or a Utopian global government--is an envisioned goal passed down through the generations which now inspires our current crop of infiltrators and power-grabbers to complete the job. For we now see the plan outlined in "Pike's letter to Mazzini" occurring across the Middle East and elsewhere with America's "authorization of war powers" that will further the goal of perpetual war and collapse.

But with the current theatrically hesitant 114th Congress, our Commander-in-Chief President 'Nobel Peace Prize' Obama has now asserted that he doesn't need the approval of Congress in order to wage war, war, and more war. After all, even the most apathetic of Americans cannot fail to notice that the Pentagon is waging disastrous war in several 'theaters of operation' already.

"War against a foreign country only happens when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it." - George Orwell.

And as truth-teller General Smedley Butler correctly surmised, "War is a Racket."

Add to those common sense truths some freakish thing like Pike's-Bacon's-Weishaupt's Utopian plan and the whole corrupt conglomeration has a distinct odor of depopulation, fraud, and psychosis, don't you think?

On Resisting the Plutonian New World Order (video)

Is a New (Economic and Political) World Order inevitable? The power elite who monkey with the course of history want us to think so and knuckle under accordingly to their *Bacon-inspired Utopian vision.

Some time ago, I ask both this blog's readers if they think that 'insurgents' in the Middle East and elswhere are actually fighting against the NWO (our guys!) and that we, the majority of the American people, are on the wrong side of the issue though few realize it.

Well, the theory would certainly explain a lot of things while emphasizing the futility of the US government's and world leaders' so-called, propagandistically named, "War On Terror," that rabbithole of endless money funneling and weaponry building in order for global string-pullers, the Illuminati, to wage perpetual war.

UPDATE Oct 29, 2011: Plus, everyone with a noggin on their shoulders knows the truth that War IS Terror. Warmongers and warpath followers never tout the horrors of war at its beginning, do they? For at that early stage, horror would be a dumb note in their exalted jingoism tune that must promote aggression as 'honorable', 'just', and 'democracy spreading'...puh! Arch deceivers take men to war!! And most folk are aware that there is a devouring force motivating warmongers and other violence doers in this world.

After all, when the attacks of 9/11 occurred, transiting Pluto, lord of death and doom, was on the 'we' side of the chart, crossing the US Ascendant, with Saturn in Gemini on the Partnership axis. In America, it is we who are Pluto.

Well, if this theory is even remotely accurate, the American people have been placed in an impossible position by our government and so I must wonder:

Which side of the NWO are you on?

So here's my favorite new slogan concerning the elite's centuries-long agenda for totalitarianism and chaos...'New World Order: Not Too Big to Fail'.


*'Bacon' refers to Sir Francis Bacon upon whose doorstep much of the current Utopianism may be laid; another major rat in the original NWO woodpile: Bartholomew Gosnold.

Obama escalates war ~ horoscope 12.1.09

Chart shown: Dec 1, 2009 @ 8:00 pm est, West Point, New York. President Obama will give a TV address from West Point to announce his decision on sending thousands more US soldiers to Afghanistan; Hour of Mars @ 8 pm, switching to a Sun Hour by 8:05 pm. Click chart to enlarge.

Moon and Sun apply to opposition as mentioned below, a Full Moon 10Gem15; Sun then applies to a trine with Mars (7A39) and conjunction to Venus (9A49.) Trines are usually considered a positive help or talent, but can set one up for a ride on a slippery slope.

At 8 pm there's a Fire Grand Trine highlighted as you see and indicating an adventuresome, daring, and courageous nature. (Ideally for a planetary pattern, the Mc point should have a planet there. There is, however, a midpoint at Mc...Moon/Jupiter = Mc: recognition for ideas and work in expanding knowledge in foreign affairs.)

Plus, the Moon/Jup pairing of energies has an 'uncertainty, doubt, and vacillation team with expansion, advice and opinions' flavor. Moon symbolizes defensiveness and Jupiter increases that tendency; expounding on goals and ethics is indicated as well. (Munkasey.)

As you see, the current July 21, 2009 Solar Eclipse (11 South Series) is rising (ASC 29Can00, a crisis degree) with its flavor of 'systems fail; new ideas and methods are needed to deal with events brought by the eclipse; any blocks could be violently or tragically removed.' (Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

Now I know the president probably won't begin speaking at precisely 8:00 pm so chart-ruler Moon (the public; Cancer ASC) will soon morph into chart-ruler Sun (the leader) at 8:05 pm est, ASC 00Leo00. Either way, the president's first natal planet to rise is Mercury, planet of announcements, messages, oration, and thought processes.

The president's thinking and planning - nine meetings these last several weeks concerning war escalation, reports NPR - are described here and his n Mercury 2Leo20/Jupiter 00AQ52 Rx opposition (n Jupiter and Saturn 25Cap20 Rx in the karmic n 12th house of Self-Undoing) means that n Jupiter, planet of growth and expansion, sets in the TV address chart.

I have neglected to highlight Mr. Obama's n Jupiter/Saturn on the chart although his other natal positions are marked in turquoise. Some US n planets/points are marked in pink and US Inaugural Moon 2009 (29Sco45) is added because it conjoins Mr. Obama's n Mc along with transiting Venus 00Sag09 in 5th house of Risk-Taking and Gambling. Venus and tr asteroid Cupido (corporatism; The Family) are conjunct here @ '1 Sag' = the "A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire" Sabian Symbol.

Privatized war for profit, a favorite past time of the tiresomely imperialistic 'industrial military complex', is indicated by this corporate significator at this particular degree along with Venus, planet of values, relationships, and revenge when she's scorned. "A Grand Army" indeed - but misdirected energy ill-used, imho.

Messenger Mercury is in 5th house as well @ 24Sag32, a degree traversed by powerful Pluto in late 2004 and all through 2005 which ropes Obama firmly into the Bush-Cheney war pursuits. This is significant in Dec 2009 because the president is having to come up with new ideas and methods in an attempt to finish the objectives of the US Afghanistan adventure, or misadventure, depending on your viewpoint.

Considering that the Big Money 8th house of this announcement has Jupiter 21AQ04, Chiron 21:45, and oily, gaseous Neptune 23:54 posited within, I'd say that the control of the region's natural resources is still on the agenda of the US government - and the speculator pair, Jupiter/Neptune, are leading our expansion of grand schemes and risk-taking. As you know, the two big 'uns will conjunct for the third and final time this go-round (13-year cycle) on Dec 21, 2009 conjunct US natal Moon(the people) which continues to ensnare us and our children's futures within their power play games toward a dominant world government.

And speaking of 8th house, you see that the 8th cusp conjuncts the president's natal Ascendant 18AQ03 (his natal birth data is given below) which personalizes Jupiter/Neptune in his natal 1st house of Self. So contentious god of war Mars 17Leo37 is conj his n DESC of Partnerships and is rising in the announcement chart, as you see.

Now this chart has ~Sun 176 degr 22 mins Moon~ which is a Gibbous phase just prior to a Full Moon @ 10Gem15:05 which perfects @ 2:30:24 am est on December 2. '10Gem' = "An Airplane Falling" or if you prefer to round up, '11Gem' = "A New Path of Realism in Experience."

Since any prior degree indicates karmic conditions for the next degree (such as the above-mentioned change of ASC degree for the Solar Eclipse), both symbols are pertinent in the wheel of life. And by 'karmic' this Saturnian astrologer means past behaviors and inherited conditions, not 'past lives' or reincarnation. Wars and an economically disabled country were passed down to Mr. Obama from you-know-who.

The "Airplane Falling" degree has CRISIS as its keyword. Positive expression: highly advantageous reorientation of selfhood through every issue; neg/unconscious/shadow side: defeat through disinclination to lift even a finger in decent self-interest.

'11 Gem' = IDENTIFICATION; positive expression: effective mobilization of the self's practical resources for the role it must play in daily living. Neg/unconscious/shadow side: self-delusion through sheer fantasy. (Marc Edmund Jones, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology.)

Well, with the transiting Saturn/NN midpoint (serious meetings) now upon President Obama's natal Midheaven (the goal) we may wish to consider the picture thus formed...

Sat/NN = n Mc: maturing through the help of others; able assistance through groups or meetings (9 meetings, as noted - jc); using assistance of others to mature and find one's destiny. (Michael Munkasey.)

Noel Tyl gives this mdpt picture as: standing alone in life; little joy from accomplishments; mourning for others.

For the human race, war is mourning, isnt' it?

The first transiting midpoint to rise is Moon/Saturn (4Leo42, just passed Mr. Obama's n Mercury = prudence; maturity; the wise thought; sadness, esp among women - Tyl) indicates an astute awareness of ambition, strategy, and direction. A depressed (Saturn) populace (Moon) is indicated, too.

Since Dec 1 is the day of rebellious Uranus' Direct Station (as seen in this chart @ 22Pis42 in 9th house of Foreign Lands, @ 3:28 pm est West Point, NY), its disruptive and shocking effects are too much indicated for my comfort - the 'shock doctrines' theory of Naomi Klein comes readily to mind.

Uranus' Direct Station is precisely opposing Mr. Obama's natal Mars 22Vir35 and US natal Neptune 22Vir25. We may not want to look at the mdpt picture thus formed for with our national Neptune conj BHO's n Mars, it's not as if his actions (Mars) are clearly seen (Neptune) by the public, so let's have a peek on this momentous occasion, for cloudiness is a bad idea for the future of this war.

Mars/Neptune = Uranus: unusual stamina to speed up the outcome of activities; an unconventional approach to forcing (Mars) idealism (Nep) and socialism (Nep) on others; a noisy rebellion against aggravating dreams or visions forced by others. (Munkasey.)

Tyl adds: energetically following one's personal dream; reaching for 'pie-in-the-sky' which is exactly most of what's bothering me about the whole war escalation.

Plus, tr Uranus opposing the president's natal Mars is a time when the physical urge to act is compelling, yet outcomes are unpredictable. It's been reported today that President Obama and his power elite backers realize that this prescription for war escalation won't be accepted by the American people unless an exit date or plan is touted as well.

Uranus opposite n Mars also indicates stress, strain, head injuries, fevers, and/or headaches - and hostile confrontations will not favor the president, and as our representative, the American people will negatively impacted by the escalation of this war. "Not 8 or 9 years more" in Afghanistan doesn't necessarily mean a short extension of our occupation.

But as you see in 6th house, tr Pluto/Chiron (plutocrats, oppression, racism, corporatism, fascism, class warfare, etc) = Venus/Uranus (erratic with money; broken relationships) = Jupiter/Pluto (big bankers; criminal elements with great influence; self-destructive forces stemming from offical corruption; pacts with foreigners; growth of spying agencies; greater powers for religious leaders; a society which wields much influence; extreme depletion of resources - Munkasey), an equation that sums up much of what we're experiencing with these midpoints conjoining US natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx.

In the chart shown above is another powerful equation of interest involving the transiting Uranus/NN midpoint...

Uran/NN = Jupiter/Neptune = Pluto/Mc.

(Uran/NN and Jup/Nep are given above.)

Munkasey gives the political and business implications of Pluto/Mc as: pursuit of large social or research projects; studies involving the concept of earth, the solar system, etc, as a living organism; practices concerning the disposal of toxins or waste products (ex: nuclear wastes); inadequate preparation, supplies for emergencies, or similar large disasters; overloaded waste disposal systems ('systems fail' eclipse?); destructive self-centered terrorist actions; focusing on weapons systems for great destruction.

Interestingly, a few minutes after 8 pm, veiling Neptune will be focal planet between the Pluto/Mc midpoint which seems to tell the larger tale...

Plu/Mc = Neptune: Inwardly seeing the need for changes on a larger scale; temporary setbacks due to illusions about how to effect some progress; thinking of using dubious practices to increase reputation or power.

And nebulous Neptune's foggy tendencies? The Fog of War.


Barack Obama August 4, 1961 7:24 pm AHST Honolulu, Hawaii ASC 18AQ03; Mc 28Sco54; Sun 12Leo33, 6th house; Moon 3Gem21; 4th house; 1st house Chiron 5Pis19 Rx opposing Pluto 6Vir59; NN 27Leo18 conj Uranus 25Leo16, 7th house. Uranus/NN = 'radical political reformers': Uranus/Pluto = NN: drawn to others with similar ideas about how to change the world through new approaches. (Munkasey.)

A Matrix of Propaganda

Not wanting to surreptitiously sneak a controversy-discussing website into SO'W's sidebar links list, I hereby announce the addition of Propaganda Matrix to the offerings here.

Mainstream propaganda we got plenty of without even trying so something a little different might fill in the gaps of knowledge that governments work so hard and spend so much taxpayer money to muddy - all to their advantage.

So if you're thinking of having an H1N1 swine flu inoculation, Propaganda Matrix is an alternate resource for balancing the WHO-network media-Big Pharma-government view that's bringing windfall profits to Big Pharma during what is, for most people, a recession.

And recruitment is up for our military as I expected when the financial crisis was hitting...Uncle Sam needs you and you need a job. Now they're officially admitting that it's due to a lack of jobs in the economy.

Thus US plans for perpetual war proceed purposefully...assuring perpetual debt into infinity.

Bill 'NAFTA' Clinton speaks on Jobs! video 10.5.09

Is this a joke? No, it's only Bill Clinton, the president who ushered in NAFTA and US jobs out the door, speaking Oct 5 on...wait for!

To be fair, Bill Clinton isn't solely to blame for outsourcing US jobs, closing manufacturing plants, and so forth. Corporate America's 'go cheap and sell out America' agenda had been underway for some time prior to Clinton's first term in the White House. But not only did President Clinton not stop the hemorrhaging, he sped up the flow with NAFTA - and, following Washington politics' usual 'call things the opposite of that they are and fool the fools' ploy - they called it and continue to call it - 'free' trade!

And I still say the US government has our armed forces waiting in the wings for chronically out-of- work Americans to sign up for perpetual war service. Now wouldn't that be a version of a 'jobless recovery' to die for?

Chalmers Johnson: US military bases expand

The Secret Sorrows of Empire by Chalmers Johnson is one of my go-to books for inside info on the roots of US imperialism, and July 3, 2009 has brought a report from Mr. Johnson on the escalating costs of new US military bases the number of which is being increased, not decreased, by this Democratic president.

To settle up, state governments in the US are sending out IOUs, many July 4th fireworks displays are cancelled, and the nation is hurting in a thousand ways, but the eagle-soaring imperialists continue to march America on toward perpetual war while charging US taxpayers for war expenses while the power elites pocket the filthy profits.

"All those who seek to destroy the liberties of a democratic nation ought to know that war is the surest and shortest means to accomplish it."

Alexis de Tocqueville

Don't look now, Monsieur de Tocqueville, but a political faction in league with the international banking system figured this out decades ago. Or else they've been following your notes and intend to keep the masses enslaved by the chains of perpetual debt.


Paul Craig Roberts has something to say about Mr. Obama's continuance of Bush's wars, too.
