What stories of real importance do you see? Where do you see them?

I am watching RT America, streaming live. I am typing out about the story I am now seeing, just after 4 PM, EST.

When taxpayers are paying for water purification for our troops, an infamous war contractor should not be poisoning soldiers.

If there are at least 162 victims of KBR poisoning and negligence, why should KBR not be responsible for their own legal fees, fines, and compensating soldiers and families of victims? Why should taxpayers pay the bill for the lawyers to defend KBR and all fees KBR should be paying? Why should taxpayers be responsible for compensating victims and not KBR?

Does KBR bribe elected officials that well?

Why is KBR off the hook after electrocuting soldiers with their faulty bathrooms in one of the last rounds of abuse? KBR is a subsidiary of Halliburton of Dick Cheney fame.

Why aren't Americans raising hell, and demanding Obama and elected officials act on this one? Is a minimum of 162 soldiers way less important than 26 school children who attended the Sandy Hook school in Newtown, Connecticut? I am not disputing the horrific loss in that event.

War contractors, bankers, and officials are making money hand over fist. We the people get at least another trillion dollars in debt every year plus interest for our own abuse. We are another $100,000,000,000 upside down every month according to this interview.

There would not be such financial trouble in the US if we weren't spending trillions to occupy Africa, all of it, and to wage war, drone bombing at least 8 countries. Why should I have to work multiple lifetimes to pay for all the public corruption theft which are the current wars? Why should all of our offspring for all of time pay for this abuse too?

Let's pay less attention to what the bankster and corporate pirate media says to tell us what to think, and actually look around. Why not ask, "What did you collect from me, what are you using it for?"

Why don't we call out the elected officials on the actual damage they are doing to all of us in order of importance? I am not saying I don't feel for those children. But, millions of us are being harmed. You are being harmed. Please don't let international organized crime tell you what to be upset about as they reach for all they can grab out of your pocket.

Please contact your elected officials and ask them to stop ripping you off on all these unnecessary wars and for criminals who profit from wars.
