I can’t BELIEVE that the American people are falling for the propoganda of the current administration….how quickly we are doped by the media feeding us FUD.

Have we already forgotten all the problems with Bush and company? Cheney still hasn’t come clean about his role with the energy conglomerates, we’ve got a war machine that seems to be COMPLETELY IGNORING the guy that everyone in America WANTS dead (bin Laden) and instead we just blindly are supporting a war that, as far as I can tell, seems to be just an attempt to finish what his father didn’t.

We’ve got an ACKNOWLEDGED psychopath running North Korea, who we KNOW has nuclear capabilities…and we’re ignoring him.

Anyone who claims this isn’t about oil and some fucked up American empire that Bush is trying to build is just fooling themselves.

And I blaim the media for most of the problems…not a single major TV news agency has hit the air with a story contrary to that they are being fed by the government. It’s just unbelievable.

This is one of the few times I’ve been ashamed to be an American.
