US Military in 175 Countries

Toward the end of the 3rd quarter of the Rams / Broncos game on Sunday, the announcers (Ron Pitts and John Lynch) began their traditional thanking and lauding of the US military watching from all over the globe. Pitts, echoed by the graphic on the screen, specifically gushed about the US military members from 175 countries throughout the world, and parroted the propaganda of how they are "protecting our freedoms".

I have previously written about the US Empire's presence throughout globe here, so it really should come as no surprise when I see a statistic like the one on Sunday. But this is particularly striking when you consider the fact that there is only a total of 196 countries in the world.

Let this be a warning to you remaining 21 countries: the US Imperial Army is watching you.

Glenn Greenwald: "FBI successfully thrwarts its own Terrorist plot"

Here is a great piece by Glenn Greenwald on how the FBI is manufacturing and then "preventing" terrorist attacks, most recently with the supposed Somali "Christmas tree terrorist".

Greenwald has quickly become one of my favorite writers. He is like a surgeon in his ability to dissect and communicate the countless devastating atrocities committed by the US government in the name of "security".

An excerpt:

We hear the same exact thing over and over and over from accused Terrorists -- that they are attempting to carry about plots in retaliation for past and ongoing American violence against Muslim civilians and to deter such future acts. Here we find one of the great mysteries in American political culture: that the U.S. Government dispatches its military all over the world -- invading, occupying, and bombing multiple Muslim countries -- torturing them, imprisoning them without charges, shooting them up at checkpoints, sending remote-controlled drones to explode their homes, imposing sanctions that starve hundreds of thousands of children to death -- and Americans are then baffled when some Muslims -- an amazingly small percentage -- harbor anger and vengeance at them and want to return the violence. And here we also find the greatest myth in American political discourse: that engaging in all of that military aggression somehow constitutes Staying Safe and combating Terrorism -- rather than doing more than any single other cause to provoke, sustain and fuel Terrorism.

Feds Look to Imprison More People

The United States federal government, not satisfied with imprisoning people for putting natural substances into their bodies, have now targeted synthetic marijuana.

Don't you feel safer knowing that the government is watching out for you and the things that you put in your body?

Warren Buffett's AWFUL Op-Ed in the WSJ

This is absolutely disgusting. Warren Buffet is another shill for the state. What a sad, pathetic, little man. This is the type of ass-kissing one would expect from a Soviet slave. Awful.

Great video on how the government prevents new business from being opened by imposing countless restrictions, permits, and red tape.
