I feel the need to explain myself

Thanx to a comment I received from someone, I feel the need to explain just where I am coming from politically.

9 years ago I was put on the federal watch list of right wing militia psychos. I have stated repeatedly that Clinton should have been impeached for the massacre of the Branch Davidians at Waco. Anyone who believes the "Official" story is severely lacking in the ability to think critically. Let's just look at the 1st point of that story. Heavily armed ATF agents were dispatched to a Religious Compound to check on the well being of the congregation's children. Does that sentence make any sense? No. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Fire Arms? There is nothing in their Charter that kids can even purchase. Normally, agents from CYFD or a similiar state agency would make the housecall, accompanied by Sheriff's officers if need be. After that part, the official story really falls apart fast. So, there I was as an outspoken Right Wing Domestic Threat.

For the last 5 years I have been listed as a leftist threat. Yes, even to the point of temporarily blessing the no fly list with my presence. Why? Cuz I made some educational videos about basic physics and released them onto the web. Due partly to my having taken Physics at one point in my life, but mostly due to my having blown a lot of shit up, I could not accept the "Official" story of 911. Well, that made me a Leftist Threat and possible Domestic Terrorist. So if you look at the records, I flip flopped like FAA Testimony before a Congressional Commission. (That's quite a bit of flappin!)

Funny thing is, I have not changed.
My political views are quite plain and understandable. I want small government. Tax money to go towards uplifting social programs, improved infrastructure and education. And for us, the US, to get out of the business of killing people all over the world. Let me explain these 3 ideas.

By small government, I do not mean classifying 80% of what the government does so no one can see the size of it.
I mean, returning traditional county and state responsibilities, like law enforcement, to the counties and states.
I want to know that an aspirin is an aspirin, but I should not have to sneak into Canada to buy it. We have Anti-Trust laws on the books. Use 'Em.
We have Labor Laws on the Books. Enforce 'em. Punish the Companies hiring illegal immigrants and they will be forced to stop. Then, with no demand for them here, those immigrants will be far less likely to make the trip. That beats the hell out of building a garrisoned Fortress America wall and quartering an army in the Southwest.
Also, have reviews of Pork Barrell spending that actually effect the originators of the crap legislation.

Uplifiting Social Programs? Well, like Workfare, or funding vocational and higher education for everyone and yes, if need be... welfare. We spend enough money a week fucking up Iraq to feed every person in this country 3 out of those 7 days. So yeah, I'd much rather see everyone with a big block of Government Cheese than the eyes of one more Iraqi child with nothing left but the need to seek revenge against us. But here, if you have not seen that enough those eyes, I made this for you.

Finally, the part about not killing anyone. That I believe is self evident in the words "...get out of the business of killing people all over the world". I know it might be hard for some to grasp, but if you kill a person, you do not win the Hearts and Minds of the people who loved that person. So, if you do not want the people of the world to feel compelled to strap bombs to their asses and run at us, you need to stop giving them reasons to do just that. So stop bombing them. Eventually, they won't want to grow up to be terrorists anymore.

I'd like to thank Trolly for being stupid enough to inspire this writing.

Thanks, you friggin' idiot!

I can't agree with you on Waco... as I recall the ATF showed up in force because of a stockpile of weapons Koresh had... if you are going to bust someone you know is heavily armed, you show up heavily armed...

had Koresh surrendered rather than taken a "You'll never take me alive, coppers!" attitude, there probably wouldn't have been a single fatality...

and the massacre, well, tearing down the walls after almost eight weeks and inadvertantly causing a fire which spread quickly does not a massacre make... there were kids in there... Koresh's pride kept them in there - and in harm's way -until the worst happen... this was a tragic accident...

I do support your right to blow stuff up, provided it's your stuff and no one is hurt... LOL... as for me, I plan to launch some fireworks the night of 4 November...

mmm... fire good!

For the record, Koresh surrendered voluntarily to LOCAL law enforcement on two prior occassions. He was on relatively good terms with LOCAL law enforcement.He allowed LOCAL law enforcement to peruse the compound and interview residents two times previously. And he routinely went into town alone and unarmed for various purposes. He was in fact in town buying guitar strings and groceries two days before Reno's Raid.

The Feds ignored all that and it went downhill from there.

On this issue, you're better informed than Bogs. Which is akin to being better informed than a diseased monkey.
