  1. “The bottom line answer is that the “war on terror” is about creating real terrorists. The US government desperately needs real terrorists in order to justify its expansion of its wars against Muslim countries and to keep the American people sufficiently fearful that they continue to accept the police state that provides “security from terrorists,” but not from the government that has discarded civil liberties”

    That is totally naive head in the sand BS. I wonder if he believes that the moon walk was a hoax and that JFK and Elvis are still alive?

    This guy is a radical liberal he just came out of the closet late after lapping at the GOP trough long enough to sell this crap to other radical liberals.

    • And you probably also believe that the U.S. was completely surprised by the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, instead doing everything it could to induce such an attack so the U.S. could finally enter the war despite massive opposition in Congress and the public. Only an attack on U.S. soil would change that opposition, and that attack would not be coming from Germany so it had to be Japan. Hence, the oil embargo, etc.

      That provocation worked and so it was repeated in VietNam and then Iraq.
      The government cannot be trusted. No matter who is in power.

  2. Here you are, I knew it all along. 911 was/is a US conspiracy orchestrated by Dubyah to clean up his Daddy’s mess. What a crackpot!

    “Roberts comments on the “scientific impossibility” of the official explanation for the events on 9/11 and says those engineers and physicists who accept this theory are wrong. On August 18, 2006, he wrote:
    I will begin by stating what we know to be a solid incontrovertible scientific fact. We know that it is strictly impossible for any building, much less steel columned buildings, to “pancake” at free fall speed. Therefore, it is a non-controversial fact that the official explanation of the collapse of the WTC buildings is false… Since the damning incontrovertible fact has not been investigated, speculation and “conspiracy theories” have filled the void.[

    “Roberts adding that the so-called neoconservatives intended to use a renewal of the fight against terrorism to rally the American people around the fading Republican Party. “The administration figures themselves and prominent Republican propagandists … are preparing us for another 9/11 event or series of events,” he said. “You have to count on the fact that if al Qaeda is not going to do it, it is going to be orchestrated.”


  3. “The government cannot be trusted. No matter who is in power.”

    OK i have a question. How can an anarchist who does not trust government work for it for 30 years? And then plan to work with it as a consultant?

    • Now PT, I have always considered you be very intelligent. Therefore, I find that question about why I am in government puzzling.

      There are three possibilities about why you ask which immediately come to mind and I do not like two of them. Those two being: you are tugging my tail or you are playing a game because you are pissed off. The third possibility is that you really have no idea of the answer. Maybe there is a fourth which I’ve missed, and I am tired tonight.

      If it is either of the first two, then better to stop right now. If you really have no idea, confirm that it is not a rhetorical question. And if you have any idea of the answer, what that answer is.

      Then, I will confirm your thinking or give you the answer if you really have no idea. But I think you do….

      There are not that many answers are there? I can think of only two, one of which is an insult. But given what I’ve said on this blog about what I’ve done in the past, which is act not talk, then the “correct” answer should be obvious. Which is why I’m puzzled you ask.

      Hint to the “correct” answer: why did Rick Scott run for Governor? He sure doesn’t seem to like government. So why be part of it?

  4. I withdraw the question.

What say you?
