Did anyone but me get that we now have a black president paying a corporation to keep indentured servants in service to our military forces? Who wants to bet that KBR is keeping sex slaves somewhere back of the kitchen?

Analysis: If it doesn't matter who the President is, maybe it isn't the President who's running the show. Maybe the diagram of our tripartite government doesn't actually reflect the true division of power in our country.

Just saying.

I feel quite hopeful after reading this. "Too fat to fight" might be the best thing that ever happened to the U.S. military (or the world.) We know that our political system provides absolutely no restraint on the imperialistic impulses of our rulers, maybe military-industrial bloat will?
