I’m sure they crowd around the trough to get what they can get. Why else would they bother.

Murder For Sale.

A third party espousing Peace instead of Hate and Destruction is what is needed right now.

Too bad America can’t see the Green Party for the trees of corruption of this two party Corporate love affair.

From the article:

“Bart Roper, Senior Vice President for Strategic Development at General Atomics, said the firm has been limited under current policy and that a liberalization of the rules could result in ‘hundreds’ of new sales.”

And that’s capitalism for you–each of those new sales represents the likely deaths of who-knows-how-many actual humans, which are of no apparent concern (at least until there aren’t enough of them to satisfy the investors, as appears to be the case here). Alert Sec. Pompeo stat!

I’m sure both the military manufacturers and Amazon are salivating at this. Oh by the way this is yet another thing the Democrats would do too.

Though these days I feel even the green party has a few such saplings too.

That is right and horrible. As for the Green Party, socialist parties and eco-socialists need to join forces.

Government service seems to draw the saps.

Seems as though the 95% who vote for Duopoly candidates, election after election, are satisfied with these two Dinosaurs.

With 5 months to go it’s not too late to make a statement, "WE DEMAND 2 NEW CANDIDATES."

OR, "RETIRE JOE AND THE CONMAN. WE DESERVE BETTER."

What about the $500 Billion Stimulus they do not have to account for?

We’re being robbed blind in broad daylight TTOB.

Bingo ! There’s the problem, how to bring all of the opposition to the D’s and R’s under one umbrella for a unified front?
