I have a single question about Americans: when did they decide that loving those who lie to them for the sake of profit was the way to go?

Folks, you were lied to in order to get you to back a war in Iraq. (Saddam, the malevolent bugger, didn't have anything to do with 9-11 even if he still does have a few chemical bombs around [which he doesn't] and even if he had continued his nuclear program [which he didn't].) You were lied to about the need for a war against Iraq, and now you're going to be lied to about another war and another war (pick one: Libya, Syria, Iran, North Korea ... Colombia?). And meanwhile the folks who brought you these wars (you know, the folks who manipulated the California energy problem, just like they manipulated your grief about New York) will get you to finance a Nuclear Missile Defense strategy ... and you'll buy it ... because you're a nation of junkies.

Get it?

Armegeddon is gonna be God's way of kicking Uncle Sam's ass, just to remind him he's human.

Human need, not corporate greed ... without justice, there can be no peace. That's the meme stringing these items together.
