But this picture kind of spoke so much when I glanced at it
It said so much
So much about the people, so much about partisanship and basic common sense & humanity
In the back of my mind I'm still a little happy because many people woke up and the young may grow up to follow freedom & basic common sense.
But the snapshot of today's intelligence and leadership is just so low
When I say leadership I really mean individualism, I mean people who will decide on their own which direction to take rather than follow the herd.

But during Bush there were ALOT of anti-war protesters, they were everywhere

Ron Paul wants to get rid of all corporate regulation, which would just make everything worse. You want to work for $ 2.00 an hour? because minimum wage would be gone.
You want everything privatized? No more public schools, libraries, parks, roads, everything that makes society.........

Civilization has reached another peak, time for the burning now. Rome burnt, what makes us think we are any different?
I agree, its a aad state of affairs.
Its got to the stage where the corrupt in power dont even recognise thier corruption anymore and there is no one brave enough to arrest them. This is why the world will burn and us along with it.edit on 30-8-2012 by TheMindWar because: Add
Because of this fire, Cleveland businesses became infamous for their pollution, a legacy of the city's booming manufacturing days during the late [size=4.5]1800s and the early 1900s, when limited government controls existed to protect the environment. Even following World War II, Cleveland businesses, especially steel mills, routinely polluted the river. Cleveland and its residents also became the butt of jokes across the United States, despite the fact that city officials had authorized 100 million dollars to improve the Cuyahoga River's water before the fire occurred. The fire also brought attention to other environmental problems across the country, helped spur the Environmental Movement, and helped lead to the passage of the Clean Water Act in 1972.
The interest of the dealers... in any particular branch of trade or manufactures, is always in some respects different from, and even opposite to, that of the public… [They] have generally an interest to deceive and even to oppress the public… We rarely hear, it has been said, of the combinations of masters, though frequently of those of workmen. But whoever imagines, upon this account, that masters rarely combine, is as ignorant of the world as of the subject. Masters are always and everywhere in a sort of tacit, but constant and uniform combination, not to raise the wages of labor above their actual rate… It is not, however, difficult to foresee which of the two parties must, upon all ordinary occasions, have the advantage in the dispute, and force the other into a compliance with their terms.
