Big Dan's Big News Feb 22, 2010

Teach your children well...

BD: When I was a kid, they taught us what America stood for and America was the world's moral compass and we were to be looked up to. They taught us that America always took the high road, the harder road to travel, to serve as an example to the world. Will they teach our kids in school nowadays that America tortures? I don't go to church anymore, but I still taught my kids that torturing people is wrong. I don't see the church or the schools or the American media saying torturing people is wrong. They're saying that if WE do it, it's OK. If someone else does it, it's wrong. I still think it's wrong. I didn't change my mind. RIP Moral America, I want no part of this.

Chris Floyd: This is the lesson that the United States government -- the government of the historic progressive, Barack Obama -- taught the children of America today:

"Children, the law is nothing but a rag smeared with blood and shit.

"It is only for suckers, rubes and losers.

"Claw your way to the top -- by any means necessary -- and the law can never touch you.

"This is the American way."

Teach Your Children Well: There Is No Law but Might and Murder

The American Way Of Torture

This is sickening and disgusting:

TV and newspapers and radio (and the classrooms next?) would like you to think someone named Franklin Delano Roosevelt never existed, now they're working on JFK. Don't worry, the Democrats aren't liberal anymore. If you think Obama's a liberal, then the propaganda worked. For those of you who are younger and grew up in the new media that we're supposed to think is liberal, FDR was a president a long time ago and he was one of our greatest presidents. You probably don't know who he is, because the media is now controlled by corporations, the military, and the 1% wealthiest.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt: "I WELCOME THEIR HATRED":

"For twelve years this Nation was afflicted with hear-nothing, see-nothing, do-nothing Government. The Nation looked to Government but the Government looked away. Nine mocking years with the golden calf and three long years of the scourge! Nine crazy years at the ticker and three long years in the breadlines! Nine mad years of mirage and three long years of despair! Powerful influences strive today to restore that kind of government with its doctrine that that Government is best which is most indifferent.

For nearly four years you have had an Administration which instead of twirling its thumbs has rolled up its sleeves. We will keep our sleeves rolled up.

We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace‹business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering.

They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.

Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me‹and I welcome their hatred."

Eisenower's Military Industrial Complex speech

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

"We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."
