The Warner Janissary Compensation Act Passes
It is going to be the big picture of the Bush junta that it was one huge effort to loot the public treasury, run up a huge debt while stealing the borrowed money, destroy the public infrastructure and contract with crooked connected contractors for its replacement and any other kind of crooked scheme they can dream up. And all financed by debt to the "Red Chinese".
After him the flood is going to wash away the American Empire.
We're the collateral damage.
There are more objectives than wasting money for the creation of a mercenary force:
* It will be cheaper than hiring American soldiers or contractors,
* It will provide the the Administration deniability when they commit atrocities,
* They are all but exempt from congressional oversight.
The downside, of course, is that in the end the mercenary armies always betray their overlord.
There's nothing left to defend here, except what? A handful of Wal-Marts and Circle-K's?
So what if the mercenaries abandon even these? The center cannot hold. Give it up.
It's time to start a new country. Who's with me on this? This time we will make a Constitution of our Constitution, and oust those who would differ.
However, I do think that the only practical way to deal with what has happened is to declare that the First American Republic ended on December 12, 2000.
Consider the mess that has been created. It is not just the war and the dead on all sides. It is a judicial system that is filled with sycophants, crackpots and ideologues. It is a debt piled on the backs of generations to come. It is a maze of laws that are not lawful. On and on, the Republicans have created a Gordian tangle that we cannot ask generations to be patient enough to untangle.
It is time for America to declare moral bankruptcy and default on all the promises made and contracts entered into by these crooks and liars.
