BREAD, CIRCUSES & BOMBS – DECLINE OF THE AMERICAN EMPIRE
“Roman satirist and poet Juvenal was displaying contempt for a degraded Roman citizenry that had shunned civic responsibility, shirked their duties of citizenship within a republic, and had chosen to sell their votes to feckless politicians for assurances of bread and circuses. Rather than govern according to noble principles based upon reason, striving for public policies that led to long term sustainability and benefitting the majority of citizens, politicians chose superficial displays and appeasing the masses utilizing the lowest common denominator of “free” food and bountiful spectacles, pageants, and ceremonies in order to retain power.”
“The Roman Empire’s decline stretched across centuries as the gradual loss of civic virtue among its citizenry allowed demagogues to gain power and barbarians to eventually overrun the weakened empire. While the peasants were distracted with shallow exhibitions of palliative pleasures, those in power were debasing the currency, enriching themselves, and living pampered lives of luxury. The Roman leaders bought public approval and support, not through exemplary public service, but through diversion, distraction, and the satisfaction of base immediate needs and desires of the populace. Satisfying the crude motivations of the ignorant peasants (cheap food and entertainment) is how Roman politicians bought votes and retained power. Free wheat, circus games, and feeding Christians to lions kept the commoners from focusing on politicians pillaging and wasting the empire’s wealth.”
Big Pharma invents ‘Sluggish Cognitive Tempo’ disease to drug millions more children
“The drug industry has come up with yet another phony mental illness that it says afflicts as many as 2 million children: “Sluggish Cognitive Tempo,” or SCT, one of the most ridiculous counterfeit diseases yet. According to a description of the “disease” published in the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, children with SCT are basically daydreamers, which Big Pharma is now using as a catch-net classification for children who can’t be declared as having attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).”

Syrian General: ‘Moderate Opposition’ in Syria Figment of Obama’s Imagination
“The “moderate opposition” that US President Barack Obama said Washington would train and equip to address the Islamic State (IS) militant threat in Iraq and Syria does not exist, Maj. Gen. Yahya Suleiman told Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency on Tuesday.”
“”We are accustomed to the fact that the United States is often hypocritical. The biggest hypocrisy was displayed by the American side, when the US president announced that there is a “moderate opposition” in Syria. However, this was nothing more than a figment of his [Barack Obama’s] own imagination,” Maj. Gen. Suleiman said.”
I concur, the USA is hypocritical. USA’s hypocrisy is the elephant in the room.

Obamacare Architect Says Society Would Be Better Off If People Only Lived To Age 75
“Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of Rahm Emanuel, says that society would be far better off if people quit trying to live past age 75. His new article entitled “Why I Hope To Die At 75” has the following very creepy subtitle: “An argument that society and families—and you—will be better off if nature takes its course swiftly and promptly”.”
