remember this when the US government pretends to care about this great man.

LTMC: Yep.

However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.

Hopefully the FSA will pay it forward and arm us when we’re fighting to overthrow our own corrupt regime. 

"Common definitions of terrorism refer only to those violent acts which are intended to create fear (terror); are perpetrated for a religious, political, or ideological goal; and deliberately target or disregard the safety of non-combatants (civilians).”

Take a moment today to remember the worst terrorist attack in the history of the United States - the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States - responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women, and children. 


Before you have an emotionally-conditioned response and try to rationalize how the murder of innocents in this case was OK because “the ends justify the means” in your opinion, think about what might have motivated the attacks on 9/11, because I’m sure those individuals were using similar logic. 

The murder of innocents is never justified, full stop.

This is too fucking perfect.

I don’t believe we’re going to war. That’s not what we’re doing here.

John Kerry

no Kerry, what you are doing is redefining it.

Then he threatens you, “if you don’t want more extremism” you HAVE to support this war in Syria. As though its not our intervention which exacerbates political extremism abroad.

Doublespeak. “We’re not going to war, we’re just doing a limited strike.” 

"We’re not going to fight, I’m just going to punch him in the face. Nothing bad will happen afterward."

We’re talking about the only country in the world that has used nuclear weapons, on civilians no less, not once, but twice. We’re talking about the only country in the world who currently controls remote-controlled drones which can fire missiles where ever the fuck they please. We’re talking about a country that could cut its military budget by 85% and STILL have the largest military in the world. I don’t think the United States is in any danger of appearing weak. 

"The US Navy admits its underwater training and experiments will result in the deaths of hundreds of dolphins and whales over the next five years – but insists that its testing program is essential.

Computer models showed that the Navy will likely kill 186 whales and dolphins off the East Coast and 155 near the coast of Hawaii and Southern California – its main operation areas – between 2014 and 2019. 

Results also showed that marine mammals on both coasts would likely suffer more than 13 thousand serious injuries and nearly 4 million minor ones.

Most of these will be the result of underwater explosions, though some injuries will be the result of physical contact with ships, or sonar testing. Larger species are particularly vulnerable to Navy activities.”

Nothing is inherently essential, especially the maintenance of an obsolete militarist, nationalist, and imperialist institution like the navy, and even more so when it is predicated upon to the destruction of innocent life.

Until people are confronted with the consequences of their actions, they will see no need to change their behavior. The same applies to the State, and those who support it.

A guy tried to create an alternate currency in America free of the Fed’s monopoly and was charged as a domestic terrorist. Fuck America

No one disagrees that the use of chemical weapons in Syria is despicable, and the results tragic. However, those facts alone do not make going to war either justified or even a good idea. And while the Administration can parse words all day long, launching missiles or dropping bombs constitutes going to war.

There is no clear U.S. interest in what is, in reality, a civil war on the other side of the globe. Likewise, there is nothing to indicate at this time that intervening in that civil war will benefit anyone — either here in America or in Syria.

The consequences of our military actions in Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan should be a lesson to President Obama and others who appear determined to act without any meaningful strategic or national defense justification.

$1 billion for a high-powered spy satellite, wonderful. Who knows how many billions went into R&D, production, all that was required getting the thing into space, and how many more will go into maintenance and actual use. Meanwhile we have millions unemployed, millions of middle class Americans living paycheck to paycheck, a sham of a public education system, millions lacking access to affordable healthcare, a War on Drugs, and on top of it all, the government is trying its hardest to start WW3. I think the next country to be targeted for regime change should be the USA.
