THE D'OH! HEARD 'ROUND THE WORLD

Using manufactured hysteria following 9/11 Congress began an insidious expansion of Executive Branch powers. Add that to the very long list of horribleness resulting from the fanciful Pogrom Against Bad People begun under W.

 Trump now has more power than any one man has ever had, or should have.

Only one voice of reason among our "representatives" following 9/11. I find it amusing when I hear things like, "well, everyone agreed, was afraid, believed the intelligence, etc." Many on the left, in the streets, and on progressive websites knew the military response to 9/11 was bullshit and only served the Military Industrial Complex, and all those who profit from it. I remember being against a military response even in Afghanistan. Without knowing anything specific I knew 9/11 was a crime, not an act of war. And even in 2003 it was obvious Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.

The voices for reason after 9/11 were not simply marginalized, but demonized outright. The very sad thing is there are still so many who don't acknowledge or refuse to see how right the dissenters were then, and now.

Hear how right she was.
