Japan Lost The Big War

Post by mnaz » February 15th, 2020, 4:40 am

Japan lost The Big War yet
infiltrated, outfitted us with
mechanics and electronics.

Meanwhile we look for war;
it's what we do, look for war,
push lemons off our roof.

in order to maintain the strength and power of the U.S. war machine, those in charge MUST exercise that notion over and over to drive the point deep into the psyche of the other power-nations these (4) words -

DON'T FUCK WITH US!

It has cost our people an inordinate amount of money to maintain that message, foolish and wasteful as that truly is.
But as the powers-that-be well know - if we don't do it another nation will.

War IS a constant, mentally AND physically for all involved which is worldwide.

Yeah, just 'spitballin' here. Everyone lost that war. The whole thing is war. Life is war. Sex is war. We just said "well, we might as well make money on it"...

(Kidding. Sort of..)

Japan learned a great deal after losing that war. They learned how to use the transistor when our inventors knew not what to do with it, for starters. They are an amazing people that have roared into the 20thC and might just as well conquer the 21stC.

Compare their advancements to even our own, and we are rapidly losing ground... short of money to even maintain what we have while those "Third Worlds" live a pretty good life. The U.S. i fixated on wealth over what wealth could do for the country at large.

That WILL end out of necessity once the wealthiest are found to drain the Treasury and the health or the citizens.

I wonder why it is not called chritianism?

I miss Luke, the lutheran poet
