    This stuff is so hateful! You guys who made this site do not represent the leader you try to represent: Obama or anyone else. He would not promote you. You guys are way off and the world will show you in November. Its time to put harsh words down and come together

    Because of people like rev, we are now subject to limited constitutional rights, ownership of the broadcast airways by the media monopolists and spy-in-the-sky weapons. You need to understand, that everything in this world and around it belongs to all of us.

    Only those who become politically aware and active when governments and mega corporations conspire together to hoodwink the general populace, are working for the good of all people of all nations. And placing ANY kind of military equipment in space is NOT in our best interest.

    Beware rev! The bombs that you may wish to allow in our space may drop on your head.
