    Dennis, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

    I knew Dennis was on the right track when my republican, conservative, Glenn Beck listening friend said he was nuts.

    • $4251815

      Amen. And I knew he was on the right track when mainstream Democrats said he was nuts.

        Also true, which reminds me of the old Richard Dreyfuss (sp?) movie; Moon Over Parador. The citizens are asked to vote for Red Simms or Blue Simms. Same man, same photo, but one is tinted red and the other tinted blue. For a movie from the eighties it was ahead of it’s time, and a pretty good film too.

    one thing I discovered from being an executive in a corporate system
    The System runs things
    and people do its bidding
    some lie to enable war, some lie to enable The System to prevail
    but there is no reforming The AI System called democracy

      Hadn’t thought of it that way but you’re right. If one guy stands up and speaks out he is generally just rolled right over by the machine. The machine barely notices as he is quickly replaced.

        The higher up you go in a corporation the more aware you become that something inhuman is running the show. But then you remember that that is impossible and you blame the PTB.

        But I’ve been a senior corporate executive and know plenty of CEOs and all have personal agendas, but those agendas are all subservient to The System. If you cross The System you’re a goner.

        • Ittabena

          Kinda makes you lose your breath a little, doesn’t it?

          • BuzzCoastin

            Well, when I figured that out, I hacked The System for my personal amusement. I had a great time doing it too. But most get hoodwinked by The System and never figure it out.

    Obama looks forward when it comes to Bush officials, yet backward when it comes to Bradley Manning — proof positive that he’s a two-faced bastard.

    • Ittabena

      And when you wear two faces, you don’t own either one.

    they punish the whistleblowers because they signed an oath of secrecy. they knew the consequences. if they are not punished, that encourages people to disseminate more information without punishment. that’s not how the law works
