Stay tuned....there's more to see....


Unbreakable--Alicia Keys



You've got to stay tuned.....'cause there's more to see....through the technical difficulties.....We might have to take a break...but ya'll know we'll back next week....No thing, no money, no sin, no temptation, talking 'bout nothing....unbreakable

(LOL...This is my week to be mad at my senator....I'm allowed every other week to be mad at her....I fear that Senator Landrieu is becoming toooooo military /industrial complex AKA "the iron triangle" for my comfort....)

The phrase military-industrial complex was first used on January 17, 1961, by President Dwight David Eisenhower (http://www.americanpresidents.org/presidents/president.asp?PresidentNumber=33) in his farewell address to the nation in what is called his Military Industrial Complex Speech (http://coursesa.matrix.msu.edu/~hst306/documents/indust.html):


"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
"We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."
His children suggest that in an earlier draft of the speech, he refered to the "military-industrial-congressional complex". [1] (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0436971/) [2] (http://festival.sundance.org/2005/filmguide/popup.aspx?film=5745)


I want to take this time to promote this book....It is an awesome book called People Power by Susan Neiburg Terkel.... I got it for four bucks at the bookstore three years ago....
