The Daily Beast: Biden Laughs Off Sagging Poll Numbers, Defends Afghanistan Mess.

Biden is a doddering old fool, emblematic of imperial American foreign policy thinking. He should be put out to pasture along with the massively destructive Pentagon in CIA, who have caused more death and destruction on this planet than any other organizations in history. If you don’t believe me, why don’t you try reading a book at your local library. If you still have one.

To say that this is a complicated mess and there is no right decision, why don’t you hit yourself in the head again, because clearly you’ve done so many times in the past, maybe even accidentally. A wonderful solution to this could have been spending even a tiny fraction of our disgustingly obese war budget on setting up humanitarian institutions in the country, if we were actually to care about such things, and just simply let the people govern themselves and give those who want better things an alternative. Oh, but I’m not a policy analyst who went to school too long and got sufficiently indoctrinated to think any of this was ever a good idea.

THIS JUST IN: Torture doesn’t work, and neither does mass surveillance.

And it has taken how long to find this out??? And has anyone really learned from these lessons??? Then why do we continue to torture, and to mass-surveil?

Someone needs to stop the USA, Inc. Empire. It could be the citizens of the empire, the United Nations, other nation states, time, SOMETHING. Or just logical conclusions, which would be the suicide that we are slowly committing by our devotion to the fantasy of continual economic growth, infinite growth. What a fallacy. Stupid college kids. All of those MBAs.

Even the filthy rich will eventually get bored with this shit and decide to do something different. I hope it will happen before the decision is made for them and we are all destroyed.

But I have come to the same conclusions as Edward Snowden in pretty much everything he says in this interview. I agree wholeheartedly with his analysis of our current situation, our wannabe-democracy’s situation. I feel like he and I are brothers!!! I could very easily have been Edward Snowden. If I were in his position I hope and believe that I would have done what he did. Because it is right, and aimed at truth, and truth is our salvation.

Thanks, Obama!

And an important thing to recognize is that it wouldn’t really have mattered who was president at that time; the same thing would have happened.  Replace Obama with a Clinton, a Bush, Joe Biden — any owned and well-heeled politician that toes the line — the will of the military industrial complex would have been obeyed.

For a change, try electing people based on their bold ideas and principles rather than name recognition and folksiness.
