Excerpt from a speech delivered in 1933,

War is just a racket.

A racket is best described,

I believe, as something that

isn’t what it seems; the majority

of people. Only a small inside group

knows what it is about. It is conducted

the benefit of the very few at the expense

of the masses. I believe in adequate defense

at the coastline and nothing else. Say a nation
comes over here to fight, then we’ll fight. Thats

trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns

siX percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas

to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and soldiers

follow the flag; wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some

lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for.

One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any

other reason is simply a racket.There isn’t a trick: the racketeering bag that

the military gang is blind to. It has its “finger men” to point out enemies,

it’s “muscle men” destroy enemies, it’s “brain men” plan war preparations,

and a “Big Boss” Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism.It may seem odd for me,

a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to.

I spent thirty- three years and four months in active military service

as member of this country’s most agile military force. The Marine Corps.

I served in commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General.

And during that period, most of my time being high class muscleman

for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short,

I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. Suspected I was

just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like

all the members of a military profession, Never had thought

of my own until left he the service. My mental concept did

remain in suspended animation while SB obeyed the orders

of higher-ups. This it’s typical; everyone in military

service.I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for

American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a

decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in.

I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the

benefits of Wall Street. A record of racketeering is long. We did help purify

Nicaragua in so that international banking house of Brown Brothers; in 1909-1912

(where have I heard that name before?). SB brought light to Dominican Republic for

American sugar interests in 1916.

In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.During

those years, I had, as those boys in the back room would say the swell racket.

Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone few hints. The

best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated

on three continents. this is not for the book, it’s no joke. Awake from

the capitalist coma. Sitting there all pretty and innocent. it ‘i’ do

not enjoy speaking on this level; most days. However those seeming

mistakes of the present CIC of our United States is rapping on a

tin roof of my mind; all kidding aside, a person who is the now

hinderance to our national reputation that is constantly in a

non-understanding, yet tolerable… laundrys done! don’t am

i gonna have to make another mistake? Everything’s okay!

everything is great. It is so apparent that you’re not

int5o it so don’t pretend; everything’s okay. ‘s all

great. No don’t go too far. Something is missing.

Completely mindless: taking a long walk x7…

don’t leave, k? L A U N D R Y! ahhh; in a

“Hap-ap-ap-ap-ap-appy; HAPPY! finally feel

it, tell him _____________________ don’t

let them take me away ~ we’re so happy

in Love.(PRESSURE) “i know i did not

do anything wrong today, how about you?

dig...

the UFO’s were picking our wavelength up.

Earthquake Los Angeles, give you the highest of all the spirits. lettuce go to 7th.
