Independence Day Turned Into Our Worst Nightmare

The news I read this Independence Holiday is shocking to the core! We've had events transpire and attention drawn to others that should outrage every American that begins adding up this holiday's revelations. After celebrating the birth of the world's premier democracy, it's more than disturbing that everything we celebrated was a sham. We're celebrating an America that no longer exists - a memory of what we were, and our future appears to become bleaker by the day... For all practical purposes, a strong majority of the people is being over-ridden by warmongers and individuals that control our lives that have less compassion and humanity running through their veins since the days of Hitler and Stalin. The things I've read and heard have me wondering what happened to us - and most importantly, what we can do about it!

Ron Paul gave a report of Congress that is bone-chilling. It isn't being repudiated in any fashion that attacks Paul's credibility - and the charges he has made prove that Congress is not listening to the people, and when that happens, if they run unchecked, it is the people who lose on a scale that could bring an end the to the "American Way of Life.'

Even as bad a we know Bush and Cheney are, how is it that this cancer has spread to the Congress - and after talks with other members of Congress, Ron Paul believes that an attack against Iran has been "green lighted" and some members of Congress are in favor of using nuclear weapons!

Ron Paul: I hear members of Congress saying:

"if we could only nuke Iran" MUCH MORE

Steve Watson / | July 4, 2008

Congressman Ron Paul has warned millions of radio listeners that the US is heading into a deadly confrontation with Iran, revealing his disbelief at members of Congress who have openly voiced support for a pre-emptive nuclear strike on the country.

"If we do (attack) it is going to be a disaster," the Congressman told the Alex Jones show this Thursday.

"I was astounded to see on one of the networks the other day that the debate was not are we going to attack? but are we going to attack before or after the election?" Paul continued. MUCH MORE

As you read the above article, it's obvious that lobbyists and AIPAC, along with those who are simply Bush enablers and fascists themselves, are more interested in war and padding their own campaign chests and garnering favor with other lobbies in ways that still remain suspect. "81% of Americans Say Country Headed the Wrong Way." That's a staggering figure, demonstrating that Congress is turning a blind-eye to those who elected them - instead acting upon their own opinions which may have been influenced by Lobbyist money, and have betrayed the American people again!

To add insult to injury, we are finding out that Bio-fuels are helping to raise gas prices as much as 75 percent, prices which is causing inflation that's beginning to impact even those families who believed they were "well off." Vacations are being changed, driving habits are changing and even the affluent are finding out their incomes are being impacted by an economy that is teetering on collapse.

Biofuels Cause 75% Increase in Food Prices

by The Telegraph (Posted by Watching)

Environmental campaigners have called for a change in policy on biofuels after a report that they have caused a 75 per cent increase in food prices.

An unpublished World Bank study claimed the EU and US drive towards biofuels was having a massive impact on both food supply and prices.

The US Government had claimed that biofuels - mainly ethanol produced from crops such as corn, palm and soya - was responsible for only a three per cent rise in food prices.

My Bio is as varied as my life. In 2012, my twin sons murdered a Journalist in Pensacola, Fl., for 100K worth of "Magic The Gathering" playing cards and buried the body in my backyard. I was once a regular writer here, but PTSD from my son's (more...)
