“Pentagon To Gas Crystal City Residents Substance is harmless, assures newspaper, but terror paranoia fearmongering is contagious”
The above quote is from the article next, below.
It rang a bell for me of something 60 Minutes ran maybe some 20 years or so ago about the mlitary gassing experiments in San Francisco; and that it was both unannounced and unexplained afterwrards. I recall that they reported many people were harmed and it was never determined till many, many years later what the cause and circumstances of their ailments were.
I love America. That is why I am so disillusioned by what our “leaders” have done to our great Country. I use the term “leaders” loosely. Dr. Howard Gardner defines a leader as, “an individual (or, rarely, a set of individuals) who significantly affects the thoughts, feelings, and/or behaviors of a significant number of individuals.” The reason we are in our current predicament is because, “We the people” have elected politicians rather than leaders.
Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines a politician as “a person primarily interested in political office for selfish or other narrow usually short-sighted reasons.” The people we have elected to Congress and the Presidency are politicians who are more concerned with their own re-election, maintaining power, and enrichment of their financial backers than they are about our great country. Our great leaders included: George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan. A true leader tells the American people what we need to hear and is able to convince us to change our behavior. Our current cast of politicians, tell us what we want to hear based on polls that tell them how to best get re-elected. They spend our children’s future by dishing out election-year rebate bribes and foreclosure bailout schemes for votes. The only two people that I have seen on the political scene today who show the characteristics of true leadership are Ron Paul and David Walker.

“The ideal tyranny is that which is ignorantly self administered by its victims. The most perfect slaves are, therefore, those which blissfully and unawaredly enslave themselves.” Dresden Jameson
Almost six years ago, I gave a speech in Sunnyvale, California. This is a short excerpt from that speech. History does repeat itself, but we the people have the power to stop the total annihilation of this country if there is enough courage and fire in the belly of those who truly want to be free from oppressive government. The alternative is hell.
