    17 slides of a very informative article. A MUST READ

    http://projects.washingtonpost.com/...ticles/a-hidden-world-growing-beyond-control/

    These are only SOME of the findings, there are too many to post into one single post. Be sure to click the link and read for yourself

    A scary and yet fascinating read at the same time.

    Most of what you just posted is extremely generalized like the number of TS holders. Not what level of TS, not what their specific TS encompasses, etc...

    Have to edit. I read the whole thing and I have to laugh! Talk about doing whatever it takes to sell papers. LOL!! There is so much generalized bull shit, innuendo and supposition in this article to qualify it for the conspiracy theory forum. I get the ComPost (that's it's name here in the DC area) and to be honest their investigative abilities have to be taken with a BLOCK of salt. LOL!!!!!!!
    Just remember, this type of shit sells!

    Makes me think about the warning Eisenhower gave in 1961 on the Military Industrial Complex

    The government quite naturally senses unrest in the general population.

    Naturally it's going to create allies within the population.

    If there's 1.5 million folks in uniofrm, and another cpouple million on the government payrolls in the private sector, too, they figure they have enough minions to deal with any public unrest before it gets out of hand.

    THIS is the government most of you here who CLAIM to love freedom really want.

    An interesting parallel. At the 1800s wound down, the Union/Socialist movement in the U.S. was becoming so powerful that the government built forts all over the U.S...particularly in factory towns and stocked them with weapons against the possible revolution coming. For those of you in older towns...those forts are mostly still standing and are usually being used as Nat'l Guard arsenals now. But they were originally built to protect the government FROM the People.

    I've been telling people for years, you would be shocked if you knew how many people in your local community were undercover federal agents.

    Scary isn't it? This is exactly why we need to seriously cut Federal power and spending. Restore the Constitution.
