As I have heard rape victims describe the violence perpetrated against them they cannot wash off the filth thrust upon them. The scum which is the Intel orgs then and now stains us all, like it or not. As a country we are all held to account,like it or not. I feel wounded by a houseguest and regrettably now must face the responsibility.

The one real difference between the American press and the Soviet state newspaper Pravda was that the Russian people knew they were being lied to. To expose the lies our media tell us today, controversial journalist James O'Keefe created Project Veritas, an independent news organization whose reporters go where traditional journalists dare not. Their investigative work - equal parts James Bond, Mike Wallace, and Saul Alinsky - has had a consistent and powerful impact on its targets.

Best kind of reporting, the facts sans personal opinion with a good bit of background information. Confirmation of what most of us know about the mental disorder called liberalism. Thank you James O'keefe.

At the height of the Cold War, JFK risked committing the greatest crime in human history: starting a nuclear war. Horrified by the specter of nuclear annihilation, Kennedy gradually turned away from his long-held Cold Warrior beliefs and toward a policy of lasting peace. But to the military and intelligence agencies in the United States, who were committed to winning the Cold War at any cost, Kennedy's change of heart was a direct threat to their power and influence.

After 6+ decades of U.S. citizenship I thought I knew something about this country and its principles, I was wrong. JFK was the last real leader president to occupy the White House and this perception has been expressed by world leaders brought to us by great writers like James Douglass. Bravo sir you have my thanks.

The rise of the Tea Party and the 2010 election results revealed that tens of millions of Americans are alarmed by big government but skeptical that anything can or will be done to stop the growth of the state. In Free Market Revolution, the keepers of Ayn Rand’s legacy argue that the answer lies in Rand’s pioneering philosophy of capitalism and self-interest—a philosophy that more and more people are turning to for answers.

Too bad the US government posses none of these attributes. The gravy train would be done for politicians and all their bureaucratic minions if we returned to a separation of government and economics practice. For that reason, "foget about it".
