If the government really was the totalitarian dictatorship these militia nuts claim it is, they'd already be either dead or in prison, instead of armed to the teeth and occupying public land.
Their very existence disproves their complaint.
Questions:

What if we wake up one day and realize that the terrorist threat is a predictable consequence of our meddling in the affairs of others?

What if propping up repressive regimes in the Middle East endangers both the United States and Israel?

What if occupying countries like Iraq and Afghanistan - and bombing Pakistan - is directly related to the hatred directed toward us and has nothing to do with being free and prosperous?

What if someday it dawns on us that losing over 5,000 American military personnel in the Middle East since 9/11 is not a fair trade-off for the loss of nearly 3,000 American citizens, no matter how many Iraqi, Pakistani, and Afghan people are killed or displaced?

What if we finally decide that torture, even if called enhanced interrogation techniques, is self-destructive and produces no useful information - and that contracting it out to a third world nation is just as evil?

What if it is finally realized that war and military spending is always destructive to the economy?

What if all wartime spending is paid for through the deceitful and evil process of inflating and borrowing?

What if we finally see that wartime conditions always undermine personal liberty?

What if conservatives, who preach small government, wake up and realize that our interventionist foreign policy provides the greatest incentive to expand the government?

What if conservatives understood once again that their only logical position is to reject military intervention and managing an empire throughout the world?

What if the American people woke up and understood that the official reasons for going to war are almost always based on lies and promoted by war propaganda in order to serve special interests?

What if we as a nation came to realize that the quest for empire eventually destroys all great nations?

What if Obama has no intention of leaving Iraq?

What if a military draft is being planned for the wars that will spread if our foreign policy is not changed?

What if the American people learn the truth: that our foreign policy has nothing to do with national security and that it never changes from one administration to the next?

What if war and preparation for war is a racket serving the special interests?

What if President Obama is completely wrong about Afghanistan and it turns out worse than Iraq and Vietnam put together?

What if Christianity actually teaches peace and not preventive wars of aggression?

What if diplomacy is found to be superior to bombs and bribes in protecting America?

What happens if my concerns are completely unfounded - nothing!

What happens if my concerns are justified and ignored - nothing good!

We got the house. What a relief.

Sunday, March 08, 2015

We are comming down to the wire on buying our house. We should be done by wednesday. Boy am I stressed out until we get it done. On pins and needles.

There is nobody I can talk to, the stress of trying to buy this house is killing me. I have no friends anymore, they are all just gone. I don't know where to turn. I just want it all to be over.

I am still not out of the fog yet, I have no direction, no motivation. I just keep on keeping on. Things are no better today than yesterday. I don't understand people any more. Their word just go right passed me. I don't know what to do any more.

I don't know what to think any more. I seem so isolated and alone. Friends die and I never replace them, and I don't know why. I guess I can only tolerate a few types of people as friends.  I feel things, but not clearly.

I am just lost any more, and don't know what to do. I have no friends any more, all my old friends are dead. It is funny that I really don't seem to care. I miss them. I just don't know what to do any more. I can't play the guitar anymore because my hands are stiff, and I have lost the music inside. Oh well I'll just keep pn keeping on,
