So.. if gas prices double .. all prices go up - especially food — and most people in America are barely making it now — paycheck to paycheck —
…and most of the oil in North Africa is in Libya — one of the many News Outlets told me that earlier — RTAmerica, I believe..
…and, really, how else does my government solve problems, be honest: it drops high explosives while weaving deceptive speeches—high-minded love of human rights — oh, except for China — and Gitmo — That’s Different.
Crap. Just crap. Hypocrisy. So tired of it..
.. and did the Libyan Rebels really tell us to stay out of it .. their civil war ?? I’ve heard that a lot today .. but who the hell knows which media sources are trustworthy anymore .. the “News” is a mass of contradictions ..
So.. I’m at a real loss tonight, fellow humans.. I have nieces and nephews.. What a terrifically shitty world Capitalism has made for them …
.. good night ..
