Crime and punishment.

Follow the link below to check out a video Keith Olbermann did about the Bush administration and the convenient announcements of terror threats. I know, I know, it's Keith Olbermann, but it's worth watching.

Correlation does not equal causality, however the contents of this video seems too much a coincidence to let slide. I checked the facts on most of the incidents mentioned in the video, and of the ones I checked, this is legit. It's a 17 minute long video, but very interesting and worth the attention.

Olbermann says this at the end of the video:

"what we were told about terror, and not told, for security reasons, has overlapped considerably with what we were told about terror, and not told, for political reasons"

And now I reiterate my position on politicians: they are scum. They have been put in power by we the people, but then operate under a guise with their own agendas for personal gain, party gain (both parties), and corporate interests. This does not serve the populous, and our best interest is not their focus. What drives the politicians is greed, lining their own pockets, or the pockets of their corporate masters, while resting on the notion that America will not notice, the people will not care.

There needs to be change. Thomas Jefferson said "Every generation needs a revolution." It's time for ours, if not I fear what kind of a world my children or grandchildren will grow up in.
