Re: AUDIO: Bruce Gagnon's Update on the Privatization and Militarization of Space

Everyone should be required to listen to this audio! Bruce is a clear articulate speaker talking about a very serious and threatening topic. I wish this wasn't true, but we all know how far the Military Industrial/Oil Complex will go to become the Masters of the Universe (Damnit, I thought He Man was the Master of the Universe?? Does this mean Rumsfeld is Skeletor?? He kind of looks like him!!) Educate yourself by listening to this audio, and get out there and do something about it before AMERICA UBER ALLES has weapons and military forces in space!! This is no joke people!!! Wake up and smell the radioactive waste!!
