  • What is it with being a Secretary (or at least Deputy) of Defense, then moving up (or down whatever) to being the President of the World Bank?

    I'm thinking Wolfowitz.

  • Wolfowitz -- Bilderberg Group & Trilateral Commission

    McNamara -- Bilderberg Group & Trilateral Commission

    Those seeking a New World Order (One-World government & monetary system) tend to belong to the same elitist groups and follow the same paths.

  • I was 22 in 1967 and somehow managed to avoid the draft. I spent a lot of time protesting against the draft and against the war or conflict or whatever.

    Pot had become a meme and disdain for anyone over thirty the norm.

    That war I think caused a loss of faith in our Government by many people, on a lot of levels.

    I would surmise we witnessed a loss of innocence

    and a Humpty Dumpty negative government citizen relationship.

    The tragedy was that it did not have to happen.

    Of all the words of mice and men the saddest are what might have been.

  • I was 22 when I was drafted -- had started a good job as a computer programmer and had to walk away into Army basic training -- 2 years is a big chunk out of your life at age 22 -- perhaps it was a worthy cause -- most of us assumed so at the time -- others our age protested -- both sides had a "valid" point-of-view.

    Harmony on Planet Earth remains to materialize -- humabnoids seem to have much conflict amongst themselves.... BB
