John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, and Martin Luther King all crossed the CIA or the FBI. They paid with their lives. What do Lee Oswald, Manuel Noriega, Saddam Hussein, and Osama bin Laden have in common? All four worked for or with the CIA. They paid with their lives, too:
- Lee Oswald: assassinated
- Manuel Noriega: life in prison
- Saddam Hussein: tried and hanged
- Osama bin Laden: assassinated
The latter three are not people you would naturally feel a lot of sympathy for. Still, there’s a lesson here for leaders out in the wide world: think twice before you do business with the United States. Think much longer than that before you do business with the CIA. You will not come to a good end.
“No, Mitt, corporations are not people.” ~ Elizabeth Warren
Article of faith: progressives do not like corporations.
Why? Because corporations do bad things. People do bad things, too.

Quotations from John F. Kennedy:
“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”
“A revolution is coming –
“When the people fear the government, there is Tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”Remember what happened when the movement for change in the 1960s turned violent. Let’s make the second try work.
