    We make things that kill people. Weapons have been America's largest employer, by far since the 1940s. Without wars to use them in, the companies that make these things go out of business.

    This is the legacy of what WWII has brought us: America has become a self perpetuating giant mass murder machine, constantly searching for another group of people to target. The 'intelligence agencies' job is to manufacture targets which we can then destroy.

    In times of peace, the rhetoric of fear is used to make us waste trillions on ridiculous asinine 'Star War' missile shields.

    Reagan and Poppy Bush did a great job, working with Iran and Iraq to create that whole new never ending "war on terror", which we are blessed with forever.

    Fixing the US and world economy is easy. Tax speculation, not labor.
