The following article published in TIME is just one example of the privatization of our country. This one is on our roads & bridges. Check out the name of the Carlyle Group mentioned as one of the investors. George Bush Sr. is with them. So on 9/11 he had a breakfast meeting of the Carlyle Group and was sitting next to OSAMA IN LADEN”S BROTHER who also was at the meeting. They watched that day unfold together on the TV. What are the odds of that?

The privatization of the military is just now starting to seep into the public’s awareness because Black Water is in the news for it’s employees killing innocent iraqis. The truth is there are 171,000 US troops in Iraq and more private contractors than that over there as well. They do NOT answer to the military code of justice and they make ten times what our soldiers earn per day. They also have better armored vehicles and equipment.
Our media is now owned by FIVE CORPORATIONS. Some of those are also private military contractors in control of the information we are getting about the WAR.
I know I go on and on about this stuff but it just drives me nuts. THE AIR WAVES, THE ROADS BELONG TO US! THEY ARE “THE COMMONS.” IT’S UP TO US TO PROTECT THEM OR EVERYTHING WILL BE PRIVATIZED AND WE WILL BE CHARGED TO USE THEM ALL.
For states and cities looking to upgrade or replace aging infrastructure, partnering with private players is the biggest idea to come along since the interstate highway system started ribboning the country with asphalt in the 1950s. The appeal: governments can stop worrying about roads, bridges and tunnels, and companies get lucrative leases that allow them to collect money from drivers for generations. The craze is being driven by investors who crave the steady cash flow of decades’ worth of tolls. There are 71 projects worth $104 billion being considered for private development by state and local governments, according to the publication Public Works Financing. The proposals are feeding a new pack of investment funds from the likes of Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and the Carlyle Group–as well as controversy over how roads should be paid for.
