Quote Sandwich w/fries

April 9, 2017

Too many titles otherwise

Defense stocks rise

Beating swords into more swords

Hypocrisy at the helm

 

Dwight Eisenhower

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex.

The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted.

Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”

 

Peaceful revolution is dead

Pony up to self destruction

Because you’ve been told so

War is Peace

Freedom is Slavery

Ignorance is Strength

Trump is President

America is

Graving again

To whomever

seems to fit

The bill,

Invoicing our soul

Through aeons of debt

No piper to pay

The Ferryman

Has vanished

 

George Carlin

“We’re a warlike people. We can’t stand not to be fucking with someone. We couldn’t wait for the Cold War to end so we could go play with our new toys in the sand. 

We enjoy war. And one reason we enjoy it is that we’re good at it. You know why we’re good at it? Because we get a lot of practice.

 This country is only 200 years old, and already we’ve had ten major wars. We average a major war every twenty years, So we’re good at it. And it’s just as well we are, because we’re not very good at anything else.

You needn’t be a historian or a political scientist to see the Bigger Dick Foreign Policy Theory at work. It goes like this: ‘What? They have bigger dicks? Bomb them!’ And of course, the bombs, the rockets, and the bullets are all shaped like penises.

Phallic weapons. There’s an unconscious need to project the national penis into the affairs of others. It’s called ‘fucking with people’.”

 

From the “American President”

President Andrew Shepherd: 

“What I did tonight was not about political gain.”

Leon Kodak: 

“Yes sir. But it can be, sir. What you did tonight was very presidential.”

President Andrew Shepherd: 

“Leon, somewhere in Libya right now, a janitor’s working the night shift at Libyan Intelligence headquarters.

He’s going about doing his job… because he has no idea that in about an hour he’s going to die in a massive explosion.

He’s just going about his job, because he has no idea that about an hour ago I gave an order to have him killed.

 

You’ve just seen me do the least presidential thing I do.”

Will any of this ever register with our collective psyche, or will it continue to be “business as usual”, till annihilation?
