Just the previews, bad concept

Apparently the War Dogs movie is an out-in-the-open celebration of organized murder. Warmongering. Just judging a book by its cover. Sometimes it works. The line “they call us bottom feeders who make money off the war and never go to … Continue reading

Another military victory where the Poor “socialized” their blood for Capitalism

‘Call us when WE behead somebody’ …again.

US/UK “Liberators” not allowing Afghan Liberty

What a surprise. The Puppet Karzhai government, as always echoing what Washington and London (but mainly Wall Street) tell them, is refusing to seat Members of Parliament elected “fraudulently”. This from the most farcical “democracy” in history. Even the French … Continue reading

They set themselves up for this…
