Obama crossed the line in the sand, for me, when he went on international television to announce his new definition for American “justice.” …invading a sovereign nation whose military has not attacked us (against the will of their leaders), shooting an unarmed woman in the leg, then shooting an unarmed suspect in the forehead (previously a CIA “asset”), without any charges filed, trial or sentencing and then dumping the murdered man in the ocean… is Barack Obama’s “justice.” Murder by any other name.
And mainstream corporate media did not even burp. This is nonsense… as well as rank treason.
“… It has become challenging to keep up with all the ways in which the president has not only embraced, but expanded and institutionalized, George W. Bush’s most radical policies.” https://thewordsmithcollection.wordpress.com/…/obama…/
the murder of Americans (and thousands of innocents) without a trial.
Does this sound right to you?
I know that my father, Rev. James Martin Flanagan, is rolling over in his grave. The corporate cons, on both sides of the aisle, have taken away the freedom he fought for in World War Two: daily they trade blood for money to enhance the bottom line of the Fortune 500. On our dime, with our lives and reasources, while American infrastructure falls apart, we make more enemies and are less secure.
Regime Change for the corporate bottom line is a bad idea
We have 36 years of evidence that unending war is not the answer. And either sitting on the couch and hoping for change or only focusing on local issues are not solutions.
Surrender to fear and endless wars or embrace courage and sustainable peace
“Those who insist on pretending we only can choose between Democrats and Republicans must learn how to think outside the corporate box. We have 36 years of evidence that unending war is not the answer. And either sitting on the couch and hoping for change or only focusing on local issues are not solutions. We must keep our eyes on the prize of freedom and vote our values instead of our fears. We must secure the peace and demand justice. Too much hangs in the balance to straddle the fence, vote for lesser evils… or lose hope and surrender.”
It is time to make a change. Avoidable and unnecessary wars must not continue.
