'The year is 2017 - the unrelenting heat waves
and coastal flooding brought on by the greenhouse
effect are ravaging the earth. While scientists
and politicians argue and lay blame, ordinary
citizens pay the price for a world sickened by
pollution and economic disaster.
"The Fire Next Time" is the story of an American
family forced to confront this ruinous legacy.'
Blood and Oil
Greenspan: Iraq was all about the oil
Stop right there.
All of this is NOT about just stealing The Oil...
-It's about The Money stealing The Oil ADDS to...
...Greenspan's seeming sudden candor is disingenuity
carried to new heights: his seeming act of betrayal,
low as it may appear, is actually a loyal performance
of disinformational sleight of hand...
THE OIL IS ONLY A PART OF THE OVERALL BOOTY.
'Military Keynesianism' too is merely a subset of it all.
(...And it too is used as an economic scapegoat...)
...And as likewise is 'terra nullius'...

be sure to hit the first one up top... Reading it through
to the comments leads, by the author, to the bottom one.)
My God. When I think of what I did at Sitel this summer
up in Caribou, Maine, I know I am as culpable as anyone.
Maybe even much more.
Hell, I just wanted to make money for my beloved.
