What we are capable of

Ran across this the other day and thought that it was worth sharing.

I'll see you there.

America's failing infrastructure

There's been a lot of talk in Obama's jobs bill about fixing America's infrastructure, but from what I've seen, talk is more or less all it is. Obama truly does have the right idea here, however, when you look at the details of his plan (which won't pass congress anyway) it's clear that this is simply more empty rhetoric.

I recently watched about a 2 hour long documentary on the state of the US infrastructure and just how dire it really is. I'm going to try to find it and post it here for those of you that might be interested.

Ultimately, according to the aforementioned report, the 2.2 trillion dollars that we need to fix our infrastructure is absolutely essential to improving the state of the US economy. But, of course, instead of fixing the bloodstream of the country, we would rather spend that money on wars and our trillions of dollars worth of military contracts.

Americas chickens are coming home to roost!

Obligatory 9/11 post

Thank god it's over... Now hopefully we can stop seeing and hearing about the 10 year anniversary every time we turn around. It's not surprising that stories from 9/11 have been invading every TV, radio, paper, and even internet news provider for the past week or two... it -is- an utterly and truly tragic event in nearly all measures of the word... however, how unchallenged the 'official' story is in the mainstream media, and indeed in the minds and hearts of American citizens everywhere, is -far- more tragic, in far more ways than one.

For those of you bold enough to accept the truth for what it is, I'm sure you sympathize with the challenges and frustrations that I endured in having to bite my tongue at every mention of that truly tragic day. While I try to be a strong and vocal proponent for the truth most of the time, there are some battles that just aren't worth fighting. In many instances, 9/11 is one of them. While I have confronted many members of my family, people on the internet, and even strangers that I meet, in some instances, like at work, or when conversing with a friend who personally experienced that day, for example, you learn that sometimes, it's best just to smile and nod. All I can say is that I hope things start getting back to normal, because I'm sick of having the idiocy, gullibility, and ignorance -everyone- around me shoved in my face all the time.. at least more than usual.

And now, for your entertainment, I present to you the truth about 9/11, in 5 minutes.

And one more, slightly longer and less entertaining, but fairly interesting argument. I actually learned a thing or two I didn't know before, so I figured I'd share.
