Our Troops do NOT Protect Our Freedom and We Should Stop Thanking Them for Doing So

Troops do not die for our freedomLet's make one thing crystal clear, no member of the US military contributes in any way whatsoever to protecting the freedoms of the American people.

And so would almost everybody that was confronted with the intelligence they got.”

Oil company bonusesBosses at the world’s big five oil companies have been showered with bonus payouts linked to a $1tn (£650bn) crescendo of spending on fossil fuel exploration and extraction over nine years, according to Guardian analysis of company reports.

The unprecedented push to bring untapped reserves into production, and to exploit new and undiscovered fields, involves some of the most complex feats of engineering ever attempted.

Why the last of the JFK files could embarrass the CIA

JFK FILESShortly after the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Chief Justice Earl Warren, who oversaw the first official inquiry, was asked by a reporter if the full record would be made public.
