When 9/11 ended they used the occasion to foist all of their paranoid fantasies on us, and it has cost us dearly, both in credibility and money. It has bankrupted us both financially and morally. When discussing Cloward-Piven, the peabrain party need only look in the mirror to see who exploited the American people.
