CHENEY SPEECH Decoded
> recognize the basic role of government

yes! that of regulating the market,
and creating a level playing field
> Nobody can sit in an

Why not? The government can print money and
make everyone work. The trouble is that the
USA government creates all money for weapons,
to protect the few opulent against the masses
of the poor. Worldwide.

I think he means "people like him". He doesn't
mean the "man in the street who has no job
security or guaranteed pension because his
big private-owned money-'institute' can fold
up tomorrow, eh Enron?"
> reduce tax on dividence and capital gains
> Laughter and applause
Cheney and the investor-class, the OWNERS
are richer than ever. But the amount of
people living in poverty has stayed the same
since the 1960s, and in fact is increasing.
> over the last three years. And over
> three trillion dollars in new wealth
> has been added to the stock market.
3000 billion. Or
3 000 000 000 000 dollars. Divided by 300mio US citizens
/ 300 000 000
=10 000 dollars per person, grandma & pop, children & all.
And who are the OWNERS of this 'wealth' in the stockmarket?
Banks, Corporations and Gates, Buffett, Waltons.
THE REST OF THE SPEECH IS Confidence Trickster talk and
selective quoting of 'numbers'. Promising tax-reduction
to lure the gullible poor who have nothing to gain.
> By the year 2030, spending

> Medicaid alone will amount to almost 60

A clever lie.
He means the so-called 'discretionary' federal budget.
If you count the ACTUAL BUDGET..the military and
the fascist institutions of control get nearly all
> .. September 11th 2001.
yep. This mass-murder must be mentioned to frighten us
into submission. The trouble is: It was an inside job.
Lets see how he wriggles himself out of this hole.
> Thinking about 9/11 still moves all of

Ve don't Sink!
Ve are in blind rage!!
Here Cheney launches into a the fantastic
'Uncle Richards horror-fairy-tale'..,
which, if you can stand the mind-fuck
is worth reading in full.
See how many (implied and actual) lies you can count.
> The enemy, also, took note of the

Fact: our special-ops killed the 3000,

> And once again, all of us were reminded

Fact: The US corporations are powerful
and have big ambitions.
> Our country has never before had to

> feeds on the pain of others and
> glorifies in murder and suicide.
Fact: The US killed hundreds of thousands
with modern weaponry.
> Though they plot and plan and operate
> by stealth, the terrorists make no

> seek to impose a dictatorship of fear,
Fact: The US *is* imposing a dictatoship of fear

Fact: The USA killed more Afghanis and
Afghani women than all warlords.

Fact: The USA attacked Afghanistan and Iraq.

Fact: These countries are not endangered
> They have declared, as well, their ultimate

> and even nuclear weapons, to destroy

> the United States.
> The terrorists regard the entire world

> They want to breed chaos, bring down a

> There is still hard work ahead, and we

> the terrorists will continue to have
> the coward's power to plant roadside

Fact: The USA can kill from space.
> And you will continue to see the grim

> proves that the war is difficult, but
> it does not mean that we are losing.
> There's been more violence in Baghdad

> Coalition and Iraqi forces have been
> conducting more focused operations --
> going into the most violent areas to
> disrupt al Qaeda, capture enemy
> fighters, go after the bomb makers, and
> break up the death squads.
> Another reason for the increase in

Fact: Some videos are faked. (agent provocateur)

> They send messages and images by email,

Fact: The USA is governed by corporations.

> in 1998; and the attack on the USS Cole
Fact: All these attacks have unclear circumstances.
For example an FBI agent provided the 1993 WTC

Fact: 9/11 was an inside job.

Fact: The USA-admin never keeps its word.

Fact: Gore won. Bush's 500 votes were not allowed
to be recounted. Illegally the federal court
took the matter away from the Florifa court.
2 judges had personal interest...
Kerry won, too. Voting machine fraud.

The HOPES depend on us?
You mean we tell them what to strive for and
then conquer their minds, WE prevail?
