“I remember when there were those who were exposing government corruption and it was called a ‘conspiracy theory.’ Now, 50 years later. I find that it was not theory. In fact, it is now a reality.” (Jeremiah 11:9) – Posted from commenter at Bradlee Dean’s Facebook page I am humored by the sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity that some people in this country accept concerning their representatives on the topic of “Global terror.” Friends, it is not just America that I am now addressing, I am addressing the peoples, the governments and the incumbent representatives on a global scale.

We now find ourselves operating in a strange paradigm where the government not only views the citizenry as suspects but treats them as suspects, as well. Thus, the news that the National Security Agency (NSA) is routinely operating outside of the law and overstepping its legal authority by carrying out surveillance on American citizens is not really much of a surprise. This is what happens when you give the government broad powers and allow government agencies to routinely sidestep the Constitution.Read more ›
Back in the Dream Time, when my mind was still locked in the glow of Ronald Reagan and all his example and message meant to America even then I wondered, “What’s wrong with these leaders of ours? Why do the Democrats always seem to outsmart them at every turn?” Are Democrats smarter than Republicans…or are Republicans too busy swilling at the public trough to fight like they want to win?Read more ›
