    I`ve just had an idea for a new campaign.

    TONY 2012

    We can spread awareness and get Tony Danza to answer, once and for all, "Who`s the Boss?"

    The Kony thing has nothing to do with oil. The U.S. gets the bulk of its petroleum from Alaska and Texas. There`s much, much more than they tell you. They burn a lot of it just to get rid of it. It`s all a big lie to justify the ever increasing price of gas.

    There are enough legitimate issues with Invisible Children as a non-profit organization to see through their sensationalist video. This issue doesn`t need some conspiracy theory nut job suggesting Kony is CIA operative, the bankers are controlling this entire issue and suggesting that rising gas prices are pushing us into conflict in Uganda. Every time gas prices fluctuate everyone goes off the deep end and tries to link everything they possibly can to rising gas prices. There is no secret. Fossil fuels are finite and pollute. There is the issue. Vote with your wallet and push for renewable energy. There. Problem solved. And I didn`t even mention any CIA operatives, dictators or bankers to reach that conclusion.

    Get rid of Kony? Sure, but I think we can sit this one out. Let the UN deal with it. I`m sure with the combined might of all those nations they can do one little thing without the US. We`re busy with another war right now and frankly, we`re broke and can`t afford another one.

    It`s not just oil that`s in short supply, or will be soon. Lots of minerals & metals are tremendously valuable.
    This guy has it `spot-on`! It`s just a frame-up, a scam to pave the road to colonization of that area.
    That`s how Vietnam started, remember?

    unmercyfuldu: and with all the technology advancements they have, they couldn`t see a fossil fuel shortage coming and try to do something about it? like alternate energy sources? they know what they`re doing and what they wanna do next.

    We already get plenty of oil from Nigeria. They`re our fifth-largest supplier. In addition, U.S. producers of oil have tripled exports in the last year. We need oil so bad U.S. companies are selling our surplus.


    And here

    I guess I`m a sucker. I spent $38 USD on the pack after watching the video. THEN I watched `The Machine Gun Preacher`,not even realizing it was the same cause.I guess nobody in Africa needs help.If it turns out that my monies went to something else,..........bad things.

    Bin Laden wasn`t some imaginary bogyman...he was the head of a ultra extreme terrorist group that managed to plan and carry out attacks against innocents all over the world.

    it is an insult to insinuate that he was some trumped up boogieman.

    I don`t understand why America has to be the world`s police. We try to fix problems, everyone hates us, and we`re not getting much out of it. (Not saying we don`t do anything wrong)Our country is kind of going down the toilet, and all we can think of is other countries. I can understand invading oil rich ones, but can`t another country take over being world police for us?

    This guy`s been around for years. Bush threw US resources at him back in 2008.

    Calling someone a `boogeyman` would suggest they aren`t actually real and/or don`t pose a threat to anyone. I believe there would be plenty of people in africa (that`s where this is all going on, yes?)who would disagree with that sentiment.

    Anyways, while someone like kone`s certainly a danger to those around him, the question in my mind is where does our involvement in other countries stop? As long as there are people there will be bad people, and the idea that we can track down and deal with every single criminal in the world is absurd.

    That`s my personal dilemma with the issue; from a moral, humane standpoint just turning out backs on a person like that would be an awful and callous thing to do. From a practical standpoint though he proses no real threat to us, and the area in question has been rife with violence for a long, long time, so chances are even if kone was removed it wouldn`t be long before some other violent group took over.
