Here's your October Surprise ... a few months early

The latest ploy by the paleoconservative gang to throw Barack Obama out of the Whitehouse is ... (wait for it) ... WAR WITH IRAN!!!

A military strike on Iran, whether by the US or Israel or anybody, would pretty much destroy the global economy, particularly here in the land of the dollar bill, where every single aspect of our daily lives depends on what? Oil, boys & girls. If somebody bombs Iran, the price of a barrel of oil will likely go over $160 in a heartbeat when they close the Strait of Hormuz in response. If that happens, there will absolutely be a global great depression. Such a small price to pay for getting that black guy out of the Whitehouse, no?

From Thom Hartmann
"On Tuesday - International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde warned that a military strike on Iran could disrupt oil supplies around the world - causing the price of oil to spike 30%. Lagarde said, 'Clearly it would be a shock to economies if there was a major shortage of exports of oil out of Iran...A sudden and brutal rise in the price of oil would have serious consequences on the global economy.' "
So if you've been puzzled by the constant yammering about Irani nukes, despite the fact that Mossad and all 18 US intelligence agencies (18? That in itself makes you wanna puke) are convinced that Iran has no nukes, puz no more. They'll have to bomb Iran to take out Obama because, face it, without crashing the economy they probably can't.

They've tried strangling the US economy with their damnable tinkle-down economics, they've tried to strangle the working class by killing unions both public and private, and they've tried to gut some of the country's most popular and successful programs (social security, Medicare, even the Post Office, because it comprises the biggest public sector union on the planet) in the interest of tanking the economy and disabling their opposition.

Why must we sacrifice necessities for poor, working class, and disabled people in order to provide more money and toys for rich legislators and their friends?


Because it is the fascist way, and we are being taken over by fascists. Look at what's happened in Wisconsin.
