Someone needs to remind him what "Commander in Chief" means.

The military-industrial complex rapidly gained power during and shortly after World War II. They had already had some influence as the result of the Civil War but the Post WW II explosion can be felt even today. Eisenhower warned of it but like other warnings they were ignored. The use of military power will not and cannot solve the world's ever growing crises. Only a concerted political, social, diplomatic and cultural movement will bring about the needed change. With the Military-Industrial complex we only get a great deal of the same wasted money, and energy.

I think those banana peels were already planted there before he even took office. What is he running from? I do believe that operatives within our govt. have planted those same slippery conditions for all of US. Maybe a picture of our President with strings attached like a puppet would be an even better depiction.
