  1. Should we be surprised. Don’t our reps ‘get it’ that we’re flat, dead broke as a nation. “Make war not love” is their mantra…! Seemingly they are both impotent as a governing body as well as personally.

    I’m sure they look at our professional military as a major source of ’employment’ in these times of ‘failing empire’. They’ve allowed the outsourcing of the majority of our manufacturing infrastructure excepting the production of materiel for making war. When it comes to clothing and shoes, we’re screwed. Seemingly the only clothing still made in the U.S. is military clothing. This was mandated by the Berry Amendment to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 which leads me to believe prior to such passage that possibly even our U.S. military uniforms were ‘Made in China’ too? The way this nation is going the government will soon have everyone wearing either a uniform or prison orange…no? / : |

    The main problem with Afghanistan is their corrupt, CIA controlled and endorsed government. I like Woody’s new moniker for the op as al-CiAda which is spot-on since we’ve created a corrupt government along with a ‘straw enemy’ too. We’ve met the enemy alright and “he is us”…!
