Alan Grayson Recalls Dwight Eisenhower's Chance for Peace Speech - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ys2vHSjNcoA&feature=player_embedded

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter with a half-million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. . . . This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.

Some people on this forum need to think about this the next time they make excuses for the wars.

Business is Unusual.. Grandmother Rothschild said,If my sons did not want war, there would be none.. Baron Rothschild said,"I care not who sits on the throne, who controls the money supply controls the country, and I control the money Supply. End The Federal Reserve, printing 16 trillion dollars in secret and distributing it to foreign companies and sticking us with the bill, is Extortion,Robbery, Grand Theft Maximum..Treason is punishable by Death, and that is what they deserve..Cancel all Public and private debt.Fake Money=Fake Debt...
