You and our brethren suffer…Washington could give a shyte:
According to estimates by the Costs of War project at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, the war on terror has cost Americans a staggering $5.6 trillion since 2001, when the U.S. invaded Afghanistan.
$5.6 trillion. This figure includes not just the Pentagon’s war fund, but also future obligations such as social services for an ever-growing number of post-9/11 veterans.
It’s hard for most of us to even begin to grasp such an enormous number.
And if all that rot isn’t enough…read and weep of the latest f**kery from John Bolton, bemoaning that Washington can’t just step into yet another sovereign nation and lay it to waste, taking over the country’s resources, without a whimper of protest :
“Maduro has lost the support of the Venezuelan people, so he’s relying on Cuban and Russian support to usurp democracy and repress innocent civilians… Rather than sending nuclear-capable bombers and special forces to prop up a corrupt dictator, Russia should work with the international community to support the Venezuelan people. The United States will not tolerate hostile foreign military powers meddling with the Western Hemisphere’s shared goals of democracy, security, and the rule of law… Maduro asks for Cuban and Russian goons to suppress the people of Venezuela.” – via globalresearch.ca
And who has the most loveliest of responses, dripping with acerbic wit, responding to this absolute asshole:
The (Russian) Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova:
“What are they (US) themselves doing in Eastern Hemisphere? Perhaps, they believe that the people of this part of the world will be thankful when Washington willfully changes their leaders and kills the unwanted ones. Or the US still believes that people are waiting for the Americans to bring democracy to them on the wings of their bombers. Ask Iraqis, Libyans or Serbs about it.” – via globalresearch.ca
Psychopath’s in the West don’t care – they could give a f**k about you, your loved ones or any other citizen in any other sovereign nation.
You’ll hear, from time to time, that America can’t afford to provide medical coverage for ALL, or geez – ending homelessness, or feeding our poor and beaten-down brethren just can’t be done. $32 million per frickin’ hour just might help so many of our brethren in this country who desperately need the help.
You’ll hear radio talk show blowhards, sipping their kool-aide, spewing golden rods of vomit that Millennials feel entitled, aren’t appreciative, don’t want to work hard as previous generations have. Well, they might continually have their heads buried in their dumb phones, but…
New findings from the New York Federal Reserve reveal that millennials have now racked up over US $1 trillion of debt.
This troubling amount of debt, an increase of over 22% in just five years, is more than any other generation in history. This situation may leave you wondering how millennials ended up in such a sorry state. – via theeconomiccollaspeblog.com
Of course, the outrageously expensive tuition of colleges and universities that provide a curriculum that consists of, for the most part, memorizing dumb things in order to get a piece of paper so you may, on any odd day in January, get a job paying a decent wage that might…might afford you a 600 square foot apartment, and enough left over to buy food, make a car payment and all the other necessities of just living – Jesus, Mary and Joseph – life is good in the richest country in the world.
And it’s not just millennials who are feeling the pinch of life –
U.S. Job Cut Announcements Rise 117 Percent To the Highest Level That We Have Seen In More Than 3 Years – via theeconomiccollaspeblog.com
We’ve allowed the absolute stench of human beings, if they are human at all, dictate a life of insanity for us, but not them.
They profit from the misery they heap upon innocents, and could give a shyte about it all. They are lunatics and degenerates of the first order.
All of the wonder from God, Mother Earth, or the Committee of Dolphins who started all this – all the beauty of creation, all the natural healing available to us all via herbs – all the love in our hearts for others that has been buried by modern era horseshit, to the point where we’ll trash it all, believing, and following the absolute f**kery of demonic souls…Mercy!
