If you have "no place to go," come here!

Right on schedule....

More WMD hype. I'm tellin ya, if the war on terra didn't exist, Versailles would have to invent it. Oh, wait....

Not to say that Versailles wouldn't happily sacrifice a city or two for "shock" value; of course they would (which is one more reason for adopt a personal policy of internal exile).

I'm just saying that the symbiotic relationship between "the terrorists" and our military industrial complex is just as useful, globally, to the right people, as the symbiotic relationship between the two legacy parties is domestically. And the only people who die, on either "side," are peasants, so who gives two shits?

Like Microsoft needs Apple, so too these other parasites.

It occurred to me last night that we could just nationalize the arms industry- buy out every company that makes only war machines, and no longer award contracts to companies that previously dabbled in both civilian and military hardware, like Boeing or GE. Like health care, arms manufacturing should be taken away from the need to generate profit and growth.

Private interests, as rent-seekers (common theme, right?!), must always and with greater intensity argue that more intervention is needed. Of course, they're part of a larger disaster market. Whether "natural" or anthropogenic, disaster allows this breed of rent-seekers their share of the public treasury.

Both legacy parties engage in a sort of niche marketing, selling the same product but with a different marketing strategy--from the status-inflated proggies that see themselves as better than all their hillbilly "lowers" to the tea party r3volutionaries. Each needs the other market to sustain the marketability of the other. Revenues from both go to the same store.
