    If what the U.S. Military did here is not terrorism then what the hell is? Here's more: The U.S. Military are sitting side by side with Saudi Commanders in the Control Center in Riyadh right now looking into computer screens deciding on targets. They know _exactly_ what is going on. They are totally complicit in these crimes.

    Exactly. The people in my family who are upset by this are completely pro-war. They now want to go into Iran because the TV tells them Iran is bad. They have no problem at all with any of the wars. They never complain of the debt and have no problem with increasing military spending. And they are 100% pro-cop, no matter what the situation is. As said in my prior post, sometimes i just need to come here to feel sane again.

    Thanks Ender. I feel the same way. A lot of it i think goes to what people personally understand the meaning of the flag to be. If it means what our military does overseas, I have to take a walk. Thanks everyone for responding. It's difficult not to question myself when members of my own family get so upset. I'm forever thankful that I can come here and feel sane again.

    Yes that's my view. My sister-in-law just had hatred spewing from her eyes when she spoke about it recently. The anger was jarring. Same for my Dad. It's this incredible anger that i don't comprehend and i wondered how others here feel about it. Of course all of this was brought back into the news with Trump's recent tweet: I always buy tickets and take my Dad to an Orioles Game for Father's Day every year and have done so for 20 years. It changed dramatically when the Pentagon was paying sports teams for having military members come out on the field, or talk from the big screen, or sing the anthem. It's gotten a little better since McCain stopped Pentagon funding for this. But in this year's game they still had military members come out on the field in uniform to sing the anthem. And 7th inning stretch had everyone stand up to sing God Bless America. I suppose different people correlate different meanings of the flag. When i see the flag it's a reminder of what we do to people overseas. It reminds me of 60 children less than the age of 10 whose bodies were just blown apart in their School Bus for no reason because of U.S. Military intervention in Yemen. It reminds me of millions of lives gone and many millions of lives who will never be the same because of the horrors our military and cia does overseas. Normally i try to be in the ladies room or walking around the stadium during the patriotic stuff. It just shocks me how angry those in my life are at people who refuse to stand for this, and it scares me what they would think if they knew my own viewpoints on this. Their anger is real and is deep.

    Just trying to understand what you are saying: so you are saying that: Twitter and Facebook spent millions of dollars for net neutrality so that the ISPs could not decrease their speed relative to other sites. ie. So that their sites work at the same speed as everyone else on the internet, which is what they have now. The ISPs spent millions of dollars to end net neutrality so that they could profit on allowing monied sites to pay more if they wanted faster throughput than other sites. So the ISPs would welcome a chance to throttle Twitter and Facebook because Twitter and Facebook have fought against having to pay more so their speed is not reduced? Is that right? The last i heard is that there is some appeal in the Courts to stop the ending of Net Neutrality. But say that doesn't go anywhere and the ending of Net Neutrality comes to fruition for good. At this point, Twitter and Facebook can choose to pay more for faster throughput or allow their sites to become much slower by paying what they are now. At this point, i don't understand why an ISP would slow them down even further since they have already achieved the ending of net neutrality. And i would think an ISP could expect a lawsuit if it was found that they deliberately slowed down certain sites.

    Pompeo admitted Colombia and Mexico are working with the CIA in overturning Maduro. Here's an article from 2017: I disagree that somehow this is a "good" intervention. I think the U.S. needs to mind its own business.

    I don't have the same amount of trust in the ISP's as you do; after all, it is ISP's and telecoms that handed over our personal information to the government without search warrants and without probable cause. The ISP monopolies are pretty much as in bed with the government as the social media sites that use their platforms.

    Thanks so much for responding. This is something I’ve never understood. So: So it’s the borrowing part of this equation that the Fed is involved in? Is it correct to say then that if we had a balanced budget and no debt, that the Federal Reserve would play no part in financing the warfare and welfare state? And that if we had a balanced budget but also had debt, the Federal Reserve would play no part in financing the warfare and welfare state of the current year but would still be involved in financing the warfare and welfare state of previous years? So the paying back of the T-bills + interest when they are due is paid by American dollars in circulation or newly printed dollars created by the Fed? So we’re $21 trillion in debt: I know this is a stupid question, but that $21 trillion does not include the + interest we have to pay back to those who purchased our T-bills?

    I have never understood this. *How* does the FED finance the warfare and welfare state? The House of Representatives fund these programs with American dollars that are already in circulation. Are they saying that *beyond* what Congress allocates, the FED prints dollars and that these dollars are *secretly* going to fund programs that are not on the books? Is that what’s being said here and, if so, is there any proof of this?

    I have never understood this. *How* does the FED finance the warfare and welfare state? The House of Representatives fund these programs with American dollars that are already in circulation coming in the form of taxes + borrowing. Are they saying that *beyond* what Congress allocates, the FED prints dollars and that these dollars are *secretly* going to fund programs that are not on the books? Is that what’s being said here and, if so, is there any proof of this?

if modern agriculture continues to follow the path it's on now, it's finished. The food-growing situation may seem to be in good shape today, but that's just an illusion based on the current availability of petroleum fuels. All the wheat, corn, and other crops that are produced on big American farms may be alive and growing, but they're not products of real nature or real agriculture. They're manufactured rather than grown. The earth isn't producing those things.. petroleum is! -Masanobu Fukuoka
