Conspiracy Theory – A State Of Mind


There is a truth so simple, so obvious, and yet so elusive to those who seek it. It is hidden in plain sight. And it it is verifiable if you can walk a straight line without getting sidetracked by conspiracies. This is not to say that conspiracies aren’t happening all around you. On the contrary, this simple truth I speak of actually verifies these plans between two or more people (the definition of conspiracy).

Now, the hardest part about seeing this simple truth is in fact these 100’s of conspiracies that redirect your conscious thought. Yet subconsciously, the truth sits there and waits for logic and reason to pull you towards it. For, like a grove of aspens, all of these “plans between two or more people” are connected and supported by one central root system, and are dependent on this truth for their secrecy and continuity.

So what is this truth… this central root system?

As we seek the source of these conspiracies, we get distracted by the very conspiracies themselves and by the players involved. And I am by no means immune from this never-ending, reproducing fork in the road. We feel that this truth is constantly in front of us, but these conspiracies keep diverging our focus, and our path forks once again. Our frustration mounts, and we either fall by the wayside or keep trudging through.

When we sufficiently uncover the evidence of one plan, deciding that there is still a higher cabal that is guiding the hand of the perpetrators of that plan, certain shock jocks and even other sincere truth-seekers throw us three more conspiracies, often not even realizing that they are doing nothing more than obfuscating the truth, and creating another fork. But for some, this is an intentional effort.

Then someone like Walter Burien comes along and says, “Here it is… here is the truth that you seek”.

But we ask, “Yeah, but what about the Rothschilds?”

And Walter simply says, “Don’t look right, look straight ahead to the source.”

But we ask, “Yeah, but what about chemtrails?”

And again, Walter states, “Don’t look up, don’t get sidetracked, look straight ahead.  Who funds these weather experiments? Look at the source.”

And as we walk for a few steps on that path, we yet again diverge and ask, “Oh, look over here… what about the Federal Reserve?”

And as Walter smiles with a mix of empathy and frustration, he simply says, “No. Don’t look backwards, look straight ahead at the source.”

But the conspiracies flow like fireflies, distracting us from that path. And we say, “Oh my, what about fluoride in the water supply?”

And once again, Walter says, “Don’t look down either. You cannot change this without looking at who funds and allows this to happen. Will you please look straight ahead at the source.”

And we do, and we know who is responsible, and we know who funds this poison in our water with our own taxpayer dollars. But still we get distracted from this simple truth.

And so we say, “Ah… but what about Bilderberg, Bohemian Grove, the CFR, and the Tri-Lateral Commission? Alex Jones says…”

And Walter in anger says, “Why aren’t you listening? Why aren’t you comprehending? Don’t look left, for that is where you are being fooled into looking. These things are just part of the source. Look at the source. It is straight ahead. Follow the path.”

And then every once in a while, not too often, but every once in a blue moon, someone gets it. They still may stray off the path every once in a while, but once the source is comprehended, all other paths eventually lead to the source. It becomes impossible not to see down the straight path, no matter how many curves and side roads we take.

So again, what is this truth? What is the source.

Well, let’s face it. Nothing happens in this country without some branch of the government knowing, approving, and regulating that thing. No conspiracy happens without government and its spy agencies being a part of it, or at least profiting from it. And no person, corporation, or business can operate within this country without the government knowing about it. Since all corporations are indeed government entities, taking direction from and following the rules of the government, no corporation is above government. This includes the banks, the Federal Reserve, investment companies, and the rest. And they all follow the Federal Law that states that all corporations must file a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), including the banks, the Federal Reserve, and the rest. There are no exceptions.

If a hybrid bank such as the Federal Reserve was above the government, or above the law, they certainly would not hand in a complete audit of themselves every year to the government, now would they? No. They are incorporated within the United States and under the government. They operate within the laws set by government. They are granted the favor of extreme power over the economy. But this is not total power, for they and their assets can be immediately seized at any time by the government. They are but pathetic, dangerous, but fragile men in expensive suits. They are not powerful without the consent of the people through their consent of the government. This is the truth.

Who sprays these chemtrails? Well, these planes would not be allowed to fly over U.S. airspace without government permission, right? Therefore the truth is that the government not only allows this spraying of our skies, but funds and benefits from this strangest of conspiracies. Simple logical deduction. No other theory is needed, only the knowledge of who these planes must get permission from to fly over U.S. airspace. This is the path of knowledge that can only be obtained by focusing straight ahead. Sure, look into the chemtrail theory, but don’t get sidetracked from the truth. This has to be a government or government approved operation. There is no other option.

Ok, let’s take the Rothschild family. So what. What are you going to do about them? They have oodles of money and investments. So what. One is a Senator. Ok. They own banks. Good for them. Those banks operate within the United States with government permission, under Federal charter or law. The Rothschilds’ are not above the government. Now, they may have their Zionist agents seated deep within our government, and indeed we see not only a fervent support for Israel, but a multitude of duel-Israeli citizens being appointed into that Federal Government. But government is still in charge, and it still runs the show. It is the people in that government that are the problem. They do not represent the people. And everything that happens and all of the conspiracies that take place must happen with government approval.

Yes, yes… there is fluoride in the water. Yes, it is a main ingredient in rat poison. Yes, it is the by-product of the aluminum industry. It calcifies the pineal gland of the brain. And yes, it has a calming effect on the people who ingest it, which is the only reason I can think of to explain why people aren’t charging Washington D.C. in droves, with pitchforks and guns and ropes… and Tazors! But the simple truth is that government must approve its use. It funds and owns stock investment in the companies that produce it. Government approves the dumping of this toxic waste into the water supply to save on the costs of properly disposing of this substance, thus improving its majority stock share value. Simple. Logical. No theory needed.

What is Bohemian Grove? It is where government goes to relax. What is the Council On Foreign Relations? It is a think tank funded by government. What is the Tri-Lateral Commission? A government entity. What is the Bilderberg Group? An obscure think-tank meeting of global government. And since it sometimes meets in the United States, and since the U.S. government officials who attend this meeting against multiple Federal laws are not punished for their actions, one must concede to the truth. Government is in control of these officials, and allows them to attend.

I was on this switchback trail for a number of years, turning over one conspiracy only to reveal three more, and never comprehending this simple truth, until fortune or fate brought me to cross paths with Walter Burien.

Now, the truth is clear. I can look at the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) and see the vast stock investments, real estate investments, hedge funds of currency from every nation in the world, gold holdings and gold certificates, Special Drawing Rights, and junk backed securities and derivatives. I can see that government owns it all, through stock investment. I can see that through stock investment, government owns the Fortune 500 and other corporations for which it also regulates.

And so here is the truth…

The government as it stands today is in a complete and utter conflict of interest.

Simple. Logical. Provable by the CAFR.

A body which regulates, deregulates, sets the laws for, polices, audits, and then also owns the controlling interest in the corporate business world it is supposed to impartially oversee, is the biggest conflict of interest in the history of such conflicts.

So, the next time you get distracted from the straight path, from the true nature of government ownership and control of every facet of America and the world, just think of the CAFR. And remember that nothing happens in this country without government approval.

If you want to fix the nation and solve most of the worlds problems… replace government and elect non-corporate poor people in jeans and a tee-shirt, with no assets, no stock investments, or any other interest except in that of the people.

Follow the straight path. Go to the source.

Kill the conflict of interest. Save the world!

Who Owns America?


Nothing is as it seems…

Somehow, we have all been conditioned to believe that what once was shall always be. We believe that we are a free people, guaranteed our God-given rights declared in the constitution. We believe that when we vote, we are electing representatives of we the people, whom once elected become public servants. We believe that the house in which we live and the land on which we settle is our land, free and clear of our government’s tentacles. And we believe that the laws for which we allow ourselves to be governed by come from a legitimate law making body, with checks and balances and constitutional oversights.

But what if the above perceptions are in fact false?

And what if the reality is that the United States doesn’t even exist at all?

What indeed…

According to Executive Order 12803, signed by George H.W. Bush in 1992, The District Of Columbia – Washington D.C. (neither a state nor a part of the United States) was given the authority to privatize most or all of the infrastructure within the United States. This means that the federal government, or the corporation that acts in lieu of a federal government, can sell any city’s “assets” which were built with tax-payer monies including:

· Roads
· Tunnels
· Bridges
· Electricity supply facilities
· Mass transit
· Rail transportation
· Airports
· Ports
· Waterways
· Recycling/wastewater treatment facilities
· Solid waste disposal facilities
· Hospitals
· Prisons
· Schools
· Housing

E.O. 12803 lists the above as examples of America’s salable and/or lease-able infrastructure. But this is not to be taken as a complete list, as these are just some examples.

E.O. 12803 names this authority in its destructive pages as “Infrastructure Privatization” and states that this power allows for the “…disposition or transfer of an infrastructure “asset” such as by sale or by long-term lease from a State or local government to a private party.

In a previous blog article, I compared the 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto with various Executive Orders, Presidential Directives, Acts of Congress, and other legislation which, under a declared state of emergency (martial law) would put the very items listed above under immediate government control, ensuring the continuity of government (corporate rule). Read here: https://realitybloger.wordpress.com/2010/04/25/the-united-states-communist-manifesto/

If we then understand that America’s infrastructure has now been available for sale to foreign nations for 18 years, when E.O. 12803 was signed into law by the treasonous Bush family cartel, we might then get a picture of why everything seems to be getting so expensive and corrupt.

No longer should we be asking why our phone, electric, gas, water, sewage, waste management, tollways, parking meters, public transit, hospital bills, and general operating budgets keep going up-up-up in price… What we should be asking is who owns these once public utilities?

Is it possible that China owns the sewers? Can Mexico actually own our tollways and roads. Is Russia the proud new owner of Nevada?

These are the questions we should be asking…

And when one considers that “Housing” is one of the listed “assets” in the government’s list of examples, one must then ask whether the continued accounts of foreign troops practicing martial law drills across the country might be construed as foreign troops practicing takeover of the land for which they now own. After all, the real estate industry has recently been privatized into government hands. Is it not reasonable to assume that our “housing” includes the land for which those houses call home? And, knowing that your title or deed (you should read yours, especially the small print) states that you do not own the land or home you live in, that you are the tenant, and that it can be taken at any time by the corporate government through eminent domain for any reason, one must ask what will happen when China wants to claim the land for which it has purchased or been given in payment of the national debt.

Are Mexicans illegal immigrants if they are living on Mexico’s land purchased from under our noses through government deed? Could the push in recent years for a multi-cultural mindset and global population in the United States simply be to acclimatize us for the reality of America’s sale and eventual take-over from these foreign entities?

We know that many of our interstates and roadways are already sold. We know that they are part of the N.A.F.T.A. system of inter-continental transport controlled through United Nations sanctions. And we know that Mexico gets tolls that are paid in the United States. So, if these roads are no longer in the public trust, instead being held by private corporations or foreign countries, where do our taxes go that have historically paid for the building and maintenance of this infrastructure? Are we paying taxes for not? Or are we giving our money to non-governmental and foreign corporations?

Why doesn’t the government actually fix the health-care system and start enforcing the safety regulations that supposedly apply to the health-care industry? Perhaps these hospitals aren’t on American soil anymore. Or perhaps the whole codified system of rules and legalities don’t mean a hill of beans. And isn’t it amazing and suspicious that most of our hospitals are packed full of foreign doctors?

Private prisons are plentiful, many owned by Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR). Old Dick Cheney must be so proud of his legacy of the privatized prison labor business. And with more than 1% of our population in prison, business is booming. But how does one know if one is still in an American prison, with all of the rights and protections accorded thereof? Is rendition simply taking an American citizen to a foreign-owned prison on foreign land inside of America? So many questions can be answered by applying this Executive Order to the equation…

And finally, are our public schools being sold off to the highest bidder? This should frighten anyone with any sense of behavioral modification and the early childhood educational programing that takes place in our schools today. Considering the multi-cultural bias in most and the allowance of Spanish as a first language in some schools, we good little citizens must pause and wonder if our natural-born children aren’t indeed attending a foreign school in the middle of America!

These are scary thoughts indeed. But we should be asking these questions, and demanding answers for them. For at this point, if it is true that the United States of America ceased to exist long ago, then we have no legitimate government. We are in actuallity living in a fictitious corporate state opperating under the illusion of freedom and democracy, with no constitution in sight. Our independence is gone, as is our sovereignty. We are a people with no homeland. We have been sold out by our “trusted leaders”.

In reality, the international banks and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is our government.

35. We are Human capital. (Executive Order 13037)

36. The UN has financed the operations of the United States government for over 50 years and now owns every man, women and child in America. The UN also holds all of the Land in America in Fee Simple. (Get the Disks for the Essay and Documents.)

37. The good news is we don’t have to fulfill “our” fictitious obligations. You can discharge a fictitious obligation with another’s fictitious obligation. (Get the Disks)

38. The depression and World War II were a total farce. The United States and various other companies were making loans to others all over the World during the Depression. The building of Germanys infrastructure in the 1930’s including the Railroads was financed by the United States. That way those who call themselves “Kings,” “Prime Ministers,” and “Furor.”etc could sit back and play a game of chess using real people. Think of all of the Americans, Germans etc. who gave their lives thinking they were defending their Countries which didn’t even exist. The millions of innocent people who died for nothing. Isn’t it obvious why Switzerland is never involved in these fiascoes? That is where the “Bank of International Settlements” is located.Wars are manufactured to keep your eye off the ball. You have to have an enemy to keep the illusion of “Government” in place. (Get the Disks and see the Documents for yourself.)

39. The “United States” did not declare Independence from Great Britain or King George. (Get the Disks for Documents and Essay.)

40. Guess who owns the UN? The disks have many more cites including Hundreds of Documents to verify the 40 statements above and numerous other facts. The Disks also include numerous Essays written by Stephen Ames and several other people that fully explain the 40 above mentioned facts. The Disks will clear up any confusion and answer any questions that you may have. The cites listed above are only the tip of the iceberg. Also included on the Disks are several hundred legal definitions because without them it is next to impossible for the non-lawyer to understand many of the Documents. Simple words such as “person” “citizen” “people” “or” “nation” “crime” “charge” “right” “statute” “preferred” “prefer” “constitutor” “creditor” “debtor” “debit” “discharge” “payment” ‘law” “United States” etc, do not mean what most of us think because we were never taught the legal definitions of the proceeding words. The illusion is much larger than what is cited above.

There is no use in asking an Attorney about any of the above because: “His first duty is to the courts…not to the client.” U.S.v Franks D.C.N.J. 53F.2d 128. “Clients are also called “wards of the court” in regard to their relationship with their attorneys.”Spilker v. Hansin, 158 F.2d 35, 58U.S.App.D.C. 206. Wards of court. Infants and persons of unsound mind. Davis Committee v. Lonny, 290 Ky. 644, 162 S.W.2d 189, 190. Did you get that? An Attorneys first duty is not to you and when you have an Attorney you are either considered insane or an infant.

The United States Communist Manifesto


The Communist Manifesto is a desired description of the government (corporate) control of a society, and for that mater the world, written by Mr. Karl Marx in 1848.

Karl Marx describes in his communist manifesto, the ten steps necessary to destroy a free enterprise system and replace it with a system of omnipotent government power, so as to effect a communist socialist state. Those ten steps are known as the Ten Planks of The Communist Manifesto…

Karl Marx designed these planks as a test to determine whether a society has become communist or not.

As if to give credence to these 10 pillars of a society completely controlled by the State (communism), past and present presidents of the United States Corporation have and continue to pass presidential directives, which bring these planks of communist doctrine to reality… in the state of a declared emergency. While these “directives” scared me before, the realization that they coincide so perfectly with the communist/fascist doctrine of Marx brings this to a whole new level.

These “10 Planks” written in the Communist Manifesto are listed in blue below. Underneath each “plank” is the Presidential Directives, Executive Orders, congressional acts, constitutional amendment, etc. that has made each plank of the Communist Manifesto into law. This is not good.

.

– Executive Order 12919 – The president would put the United States under total martial law and military dictatorship, in case of a declared emergency.


≈–1–≈

1) Abolition of private property. Abolition of private property and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.

– The Patriot Act – Allows law enforcement to conduct warrentless searches of your records and place of residence, and to confiscate your personal property without your knowledge or consent.


≈–2–≈

2) The income tax. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

The Emergency Banking Act – President Roosevelt declared the United States Federal Government dissolved by being bankrupt and insolvent.

– House Joint Resolution 192, 73rd Congress –  Suspended The Gold Standard and Abrogated The Gold Clause. Dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States Governmental Offices, Officers, and Departments.

– Sixteenth Amendment (Amendment XVI) – Allows the Congress to unconstitutionally levy an income tax without apportioning it among the states or basing it on census results. “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.”


≈–3–≈

3) Abolition of estate. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

– Probate Laws and Taxes – The application of estate tax, property tax, and the limiting of and reassigning of property values, as well as other state and federal taxes are all aspects of this. Also, you do not own the property in which you live nor the land it sits upon. You are permitted through contract (title/deed) with the State to occupy said dwelling. It can be taken away at any time through eminent domain, or through bank contract if a loan is defaulted upon. Read your title and deed and these facts will become apparent.


≈–4–≈

4) Confiscation of property. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

– Executive Order 10998 – Allows the government to seize all means of transportation, including personal cars, trucks, and vehicles of any kind.

– Executive Order 11310 – Grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.

– Eminent Domain – The inherent power of the State to seize a citizen’s private property, expropriate property, or seize a citizen’s rights in property with due monetary compensation, but without the owner’s consent. The property is taken either for government use or by delegation to third parties (corporations) who will devote it to public or civic use or, in some cases, economic development. The exercise of eminent domain is not limited to real property. Governments may also condemn (exercise power of eminent domain to transfer title to the property from its private owner to the government) personal property, such as supplies for the military in wartime or franchises. Governments can even condemn intangible property such as contract rights, patents, trade secrets, and copyrights.

International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) – A UNITED STATES Federal Law allowing U.S. presidents  to identify any unusual extraordinary threat that originates outside the UNITED STATES and to confiscate property and prohibit transactions in response. In the UNITED STATES CODE  the IEEPA is TITLE 50, SECTIONs 1701-1707. Enables the President to seize the property of a foreign country or national. These powers were transferred to FEMA in a sweeping consolidation in 1979.

– National Security Presidential Directive (NSPD) 51 – Allows the president to control and coordinate all three brances of government (to become king) in the event of a “catastrophic emergency”. Thus, no judicial review or jury trial will be available, thus property disputes will be squashed by the king or his minions.

– The Military Commissions Act – Strips the courts of jurisdiction to hear or consider habeas corpus appeals of anyone held in U.S. Custody as an “unlawful enemy combatant” or “rebels”. Also prohibits any person from invoking the Geneva Conventions or their protocols as a source of rights in any action in a U.S. court.


≈–5–≈

5) A central bank. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

– Executive Order 11921 – Allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to take control of all financial institutions in the United States, and allows government to control the mechanisms of production and distribution of energy sources.

≈–6–≈

6) Government control of communications and transportation. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.

– Executive Order 10990 – Allows government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.

– Executive Order 10995 – Allows government to seize and control all communications media (telecommunications, internet, radio, television, etc…)

The State of Massachusetts enacted mandatory government sponsored education in 1852. Mississippi was the last state to enact a compulsory attendance law In 1918. Public education involves compulsory student attendance until a certain age or standard is achieved, government certification of teachers and curricula to ensure learning structure and materials are State approved, and government testing and standards for citizens, to ensure indoctrination-like education into the system of debt-enslavement and ignorance of corporate government and actual history is achieved. Homeschooling is now demonized, and has even been made illegal in some states.

One “event” is all it will take, real or false-flag.

And a national emergency will be declared.

Obama will become king, overseen and controled by an oligarchy of elites.

Be afraid… be very afraid!

What Is Democracy? What Is A Republic?


Simply stated, democracy is a majority rule.

So, if 51% of the people get what they want, then 49% of the people get something they don’t want.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep sitting down to discuss dinner plans.

Where as a republic form of government, which is guaranteed by the constitution, is well armed sheep.

You see, in the republic form of governance (not to be mistaken with the Republican Party, at all, in the least!) – but in the republic form of governance, each party, group, or individual would be represented and included. A law or bill, and especially an amendment to the constitution itself would be extremely difficult to get ratified. This is a good thing, and exactly what the founding fathers had in mind – less government and more liberty. And for good reason…

The idealistic writers of the constitution, believing that parties, special interests, lobbies, and politicians would never be able to set their claws into the beautifully written concepts for which the constitution set forth, made the mistake of concluding that like themselves, the future elected leaders of the country would be both statesmen and representatives of the people. This of course was and certainly is not the case. Education is one huge factor in this. Uneducated voting is nothing more than a popularity contest similar to American Idol, where winners are chosen by the producers under the false pretense that the voting public actually elected the winner.

One might rebut and say that we have a democratic republic…

But in truth, the two concepts are way too opposite from each other to be used to describe each other. This is because a majority rule can never represent the minority need (nor the minority of one) as in a true republic like the one described in the constitution.

The Bill Of Rights are God-given. They are not privileges to be suffocated and chiseled away by legalities and statues forced upon the public by weasels in fancy suits, ties and black robes. Government owned corporations were never intended to be the police, the treasury, the municipalities, the army, or the appointed legislators.

But this is what we have become: a democracy. A better title would be an oligarchical corpocracy (fascism) – corporations owned through investment by the government, whom advertise popular candidates like Obama, knowing that once he is elected he will appoint former, current, and future corporation lobbyists, CEO’s, and board members into positions favorable to private government/corporate no-bid contracts, thus ensuring future revenue generation for the government-owned corporations while generating wealth and kickbacks for the corporate representatives that are appointed by the elected official, namely the president of the United States corporation – U.S. Inc.

Thus, when we hear our politicians and media hounds constantly harping about bringing democracy to the rest of the world, what this really means is that United States Incorporated wants to expand its business base internationally – be it oil in Iraq, poppy seeds in Afghanistan, water and mineral rights in South America, or simply the power to use our corporate and United Nations controlled military to destroy a countries infrastructure so that companies like Halliburton can receive billions in taxpayer money to rebuild what U.S. Inc. destroys. All of this in the name of democracy?

Let’s try: all of this in the name of corporate big-business.

And the human element, as we’ve seen in the Middle East, is much like an exterminator killing cockroaches. The only difference is that the pest control industry provides the necessary protective equipment and tools for their exterminators, whilst the military just denies its soldiers medical claims for their wounds and traumas sustained due to a lack of equipment and a general lack of  human emotion and callous disregard for it’s soldiers well being. I have a feeling that if the pest control corporations could get away with this crime, it would stop providing safety equipment for it’s exterminators tomorrow.

The U.S. government is a holding company, a concentration of monetary funds, investments, and the power of allocation of monies, allowing for the corporate employees (politicians being paid by these corporations before, during, and after his or her term is done) to legislate in favor of corporate need and with total disregard of the people they are meant to represent. Why do you think men like Clinton, Bush, and Cheney are now on multiple corporate boards, earning millions of dollars for attending a meeting once or twice a year?

A republic requires 100% of the vote, both in elections and in a jury trial. While a democracy only requires majority rule. This is great, as long as you are in the majority! But can you imagine if the choice to use nuclear weapons was left up to a majority, especially the uneducated and socially manipulated population. How many times have you heard that, regarding the middle-east, “we should just nuke em”? This is why the average people should not be in a position to vote. They do not understand what they are voting for, besides the best sound byte and promises from the prettiest face and fanciest suit. This was the purpose of electing a statesman to represent the people.  The constitutionalists were sure that the state of education would be top notch in their new country… and that the people would never forget the reasons why they set up a republic in the first place, and not a democracy. But as with all things, the people are doomed to repeat their past – thanks to the purposeful corporate degradation of the school system and radio and television.

If our system of government were truly of the form granted by the constitution for the United States of America, this is how the congress and senate voting sessions would go:

1) A bill or amendment would be put forth onto the floor of the legislature.

2) Debate over the quality, constitutionalism, practical application, and future ramifications would then ensue for many days, weeks, or months since every state representative would be needed to justify the passage of this new law. This ideological barrier was purposeful, so that 99% of the laws and statutes that are passed and in effect now could not have been passed. If one independent statesman stood up and voted no, then it would have to be re-written and re-debated until all representatives shared a common desire to see this bill become law.

3) Once all minorities are fully represented and content with the bill, it would then be passed by the house, then the senate. And finally, the president (being a true statesman and not a shill for corporate interests) would have to decide if the bill was indeed constitutional and good for the country. If he did not, he could veto the bill. But this veto is not the final authority, for the representatives of the states could force the bill through despite the executive branches action.

This is what was originally a constitutional set of checks and balances for the republic, where each legislative body must respect and approve the others actions, ensuring total representation for all people. But this is no longer the case. Now, the president (of the corporation) does as he wishes, or more accurately, what he is told to do by his appointed hierarchy and the corporate structure they represent.

Who does the president appoint to these positions of power and regulation?

Well, in March President Obama announced that he was appointing Islam A. Siddiqui as Chief Agricultural Negotiator, Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.

Islam Siddiqui is a pesticide lobbyist and Vice President for Science and Regulatory Affairs at CropLife America, an agribusiness lobbying group that represents Monsanto.

Monsanto is a government controlled corporation, and one that is ruining the organic and wholesome food markets in favor of its genetically modified organisms (GMO) that look the same as corn, soybeans, and other crops. But they are altered clones of real food, with deadly pesticides built into the genetic code of the seeds.

The reason for this purposeful mutation of living organisms? The patenting of life itself.

From the blood in your body, to the foods that you grow, to the animals you raise and eat, to the DNA that you are made up by, companies like Monsanto are allowed to own life by putting a government (corporate) patent on each monstrosity they create, while simultaneously attempting and succeeding in killing and removing from the markets the original life or heirloom seeds that humans have used from the beginning of our time.

By appointing Monsanto and other corporate representatives into the government offices that write the regulatory laws for which these giant corporations operate under, our legislative body has become nothing more than a corporate permission giving body, there to ensure that the anti-trust, health-codes, and other regulations are in fact deregulated for ease of transition into a completely corporately dominated, government owned corpocracy with no representation for the people whatsoever. The laws which govern corporate greed and thievery are being written by the corporations’ lobbyists that they in turn paid millions to get appointed through the election of the president, who would then appoint them.

This type of majority representation of the corporations and not of the people is where we stand now. Our legislature is on a level of coruption unheard of in even the most devilish of oligarchies or communist regimes, with banks running the treasury and economy, pharmacuiticals running healthcare, chemical weapons companies running agriculture, insurance companies running the judicial, private security running the police and military, media companies running the propaganda, and the United Nations running the show. If all the world is indeed the stage, then we are not merely players, but corporate debt slaves.

One last word on what a democracy really is…

The word democracy does not ever appear in the Declaration Of Independence, nor in the constitution.  It also never appears in any of the 50 state constitutions. In short, we are not supposed to be a democracy.

The founding fathers actually did everything they could to keep our new country out of a democracy, knowing that a democracy is just a patriotic word for an oligarchy.

“Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention, have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property, and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.” — James Madison: “Father of the Constitution” from: The Federalist Papers – Essay 10 —

“We are a republican government. Real Liberty is never found in despotism or the extremes of democracy” — Alexander Hamilton

“Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself.” — Samual Adams

I think that many people, in studying the constitution, overlook the fact that this is true. I think that many people think that the constitution was the inventor of the democracy, and do not understand that Rome was a democracy as it fell. And I do not think that America has much longer to live, if you can call our current despotism, bankruptcy, hunger, pharmaceutical poisoning, homelessness and moral degradation living.

On a final note, here is a list of past democracies, and how long they lasted. Compare these with the United States…

†———————————-†———————————-†

The Tytler Cycle

†———————————-†———————————-†

The Scottish historian Alexander Tytler composed the following theory:

“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.

“From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:


From bondage to spiritual faith;

From spiritual faith to great courage;

From courage to liberty;

From liberty to abundance;

From abundance to complacency;

From complacency to apathy;

From apathy to dependence;

From dependence back into bondage.”


Consider now that the following empires all lasted just a bit over 200 years:

Assyria (859-612 B.C.): a 247-year reign.
Persia (538-330 B.C.): a 208-year reign.
Greece (331-100 B.C.): a 231-year reign.
The Roman Republic (260-27 B.C.): a 233-year reign.
The Roman Empire (27 B.C.-180 A.D.): a 207-year reign.
The Arab Empire (634-880 A.D.): a 246-year reign.
The Mameluke Empire (1250-1517 A.D.): a 267-year reign.
The Ottoman Empire (1320-1570 A.D.): a 250-year reign.
Spain (1500-1750 A.D.): a 250-year reign.
Romanov Russia (1682-1916 A.D.): a 234-year reign.
Great Britain (1700-1950 A.D.): a 250-year reign.
The United States (1790-2010 A.D.): 220 years and counting.

***List compiled by Chuck Baldwin – Constitutional Party presidential candidate in 2008 that most voters never even knew was on the ballot until election day, due to a media blackout on “alternative” and “third party” candidates.

• Now consider that the United States has been around – since winning it’s war for independence and becoming a nation – for 220 years.

• Or depending on your historical perspective, since 1776 – the unofficial humble beginnings of our country through the Declaration of Independence – for 234 years (Coincidentally, just one more year than the Roman republic-turned-democracy listed above).

The Government Casino


I used to deal blackjack in South Lake Tahoe. It was a good job – good benefits, really good tips, and I got to live in the beautiful and clean mountains of Tahoe. But as with everything else in life, once the initial excitement of a new job is absorbed, and the realization of the reality of what it is you are actually doing in your job and how it either benefits or harms the people who are your customers, the whole thing falls apart.

I learned many things in that job… not the least of which was the application of statistics and the law of averages and odds to take advantage of the average person who likes to gamble (sheep without a clue). And unfortunately, I learned that most businesses out there that deal with the making of money by usury, gambling, and investments are indeed a cancer on humanity, and are slowly destroying the fabric of our freedom and replacing it with destitution and debt.

On that note… I’d like to compare our corporate government and the stock markets to a casino, and see if there is any distinguishable difference between the two…

I’d like to mention this one thing before I start, since I think it is relevant to this comparison. The feeling I used to get when i walked into a casino and layed my money on the table – the anxiety of risk mixed with the illogical emotional orgasm at the prospects of winning a fortune  – was the same feeling I used to get when I would buy shares in a stock from a company that really, in hind sight, I knew nothing about. Gambling is gambling, whether you call it investing or insist is is just a game.

First of all, as we enter into the casino, we have to exchange our money for chips. Similar to buying a piece of paper (called a stock certificate) representing the purchasing of a stock, the casino sells chips in exchange for your hard earned cash, and without hesitation I might add, considering the prospects of you actually building wealth from those chips. So in essence, the casino sells you a worthless clay or plastic chip that represents the value of the money you exchanged for it, knowing that the only place you can spend that chip (in-house money) is in their casino. As with a stock certificate, the chip is simply a tool used for gambling – a talisman which mimics wealth but is actually worthless paper, clay, or plastic that can be traded and bet for other similar but worthless talismans.

The only way that chip has any value is if you cash it back in for its monetary equivalent. The same goes for a stock certificate. If a stock goes down in value, or your chips become less than what you started with, your losses are only realized when you actually cash these objects in for their current value. So, the only way you lose money on your gambling (investment) is to cash in your talisman after it has lost value. Of course no one wants to do that, and so most of us will hold on to the chips or papers that represent our money, and watch it slowly dwindle due to forces that are mostly outside of our control, or from an addiction to this obsurd excitement we get from the thought of our luck turning around and still reaping huge rewards.

But if that casino goes out of business or declares bankruptcy, and you are still holding that chip or piece of paper, the casino or company that these talismans represent have no obligation to pay you the value on their face. In this way, their value is best defined as “conditionally” worthless – the condition being that you aren’t educated or knowledgeable enough about how the casino or the company and the market it trades through works to know when the right time to trade them back in will be.

And we must remember that when we loose a chip to a hot dealer or we lose a dollar on a bad stock pick, that dollar doesn’t just get lost and disappear off of the market and out of the monetary system, and instead it goes into someone elese’s account. The stock gets lower in value, and someone behind the scenes gets richer. One dollar lost by you is another dollar gained by someone else. And by someone else I generally mean the government, it’s investment owned corporations, and the wealthy elite – who became wealthy by manipulating the markets into making you lose your wealth in thier shell game they call “the stock market”.

Now, the casino goes out of its way to entertain, wine, and dine you so that you will come back for more. It makes sure that there are no clocks or windows for you to see outside, so that the comprehension of time and of day and night are virtually non-existent. It places flashy lights, clever advertising, winning bells, and half naked cocktail waitresses all around you to add to your distraction. It pumps specific mood altering vibrational sound and music at low levels to keep you docile and in a trance-like state for the duration of your stay. And it has complete control over the odds, knowing that it will always come out financially ahead over most of its gamblers in the long run.

Does this sound like the government and the stock market to you? Let’s see…

The government owned television networks keep you entertained and give you reality shows and “to-be-continued” sitcoms so that you will continuously come back for more. The television holds you in a trance-like flash induced state as it pumps specific mood enhancing and mind-altering programing and sound into your living room. It bombards you with flashing lights and advertising. The news and financial “entertainment” shows give you false information about stocks and what is a good investment, similar to the mth propegated by casinos about your odds of winning against them. Billboards, radio, and other media outlets purposefully expose you to more than 3000 distracting advertisements a day, wherever you go. Sex is the weapon of choice in this advertising, and you are sold purely nonsexual products like milk and coffee by beautiful and scantily clad male and female models and Hollywood stars. And the very products and services that are being sold to you, completely distract you from what is really happening…

What is happening?

You are trading in your money for worthless stuff you don’t need and gambling the rest of your money away investing in the stocks that the government and its investment owned corporations have complete control over (the odds are fixed!). The market is manipulated on a constant basis, completely controlled by the people in power. Think of it this way… if all Fortune 500 companies are collectively owned through government investments by the over 174,000 individual governments around the United States (collectively as one conglomerate individual government body – The U.S. government corporation) then it is natural and logical to assume that the value of these corporations on the open market are also in the control of the government who owns and reinvests in their majority shares as well as the monetary system that they thrive in. The price of Haliburton stock, for instance, goes up when the government “invests” in the destruction of the once beautiful country of Iraq. Nation building and re-building is huge business. And market shares soar when that corporations services are sudenly needed to rebuild the nation that our corporate government decides to destroy, and awards outragous no bid contracts to its own investment-owned company.

Translation: nothing happens randomly in the stock market, and corporations rise and fall (and are repurchased for pennies and conglomerated) at the whim of our corporate government!

OK, back to the casino…

The games that are provided for us to play in the casinos are specifically invented to assure that the odds are always in the favor of the house (the casino). The illusion and legends of being able to beat the casino are propagated to the extreme to the general public, while the men who have lost small fortunes – and in the process their businesses, homes, families, and lives – go unmentioned. (And yes, I saw small fortunes go through my hands as a dealer, enough to feed a small country. And I couldn’t believe it when cutomers were still in the same seat 24 hours later with a slumped over, dazed, exhausted look on thier faces… and yet still the glimmer of hope in thier eyes.)

And as soon as the money dries up, the casino perks, free rooms, food, and entertainment dry up as well.

Comparatively, once the sheep-like American investors lose thier savings and investment wealth in the stock market, thier perks dry up as well. Many end up homeless on the street, broke and hungary, while the money they lost is reinvested back into the governments crime syndiccate called the UNITED STATES.

What are the chances of winning at blackjack?

The “odds” that everyone seems to cling to as they sit on the losing side of the table go something like this: the house has a slight advantage (about 54% chance of winning). But these odds are in reality based on a computer model simulating randomly generated blackjack hands, where a computer player and a computer dealer play the same way by a specific set of rules in a perfect uninterupted simulation for millions of hands. Strangely, these are the odds by which most players play the game. But these odds change dramatically when other variables are included into the equation. For instance, new players don’t know the rules, and therefore will play differently than the computer model and the experienced gamblers. This of course changes the odds, as more or less cards are played in each individual hand. Interestingly, the new players often win on thier first blackjack session, simply because they don’t follow a specific set of rules. They think about thier options, and make amatur but somewhat educated guesses. And when they don’t follow the advice of the other players, they often come out ahead. Amusingly, this is refered to as beginers luck!

As for the “experienced” players, they quite easily fit into Einstein’s definition of insanity, which states:

“Insanity = doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

And the look of frustration and anger on thier faces as they blame the dealer and the new player at the table is a good indication that this is a true description. Loosing is never the gambler’s fault, just as alcoholics and smokers could quit… if they thought they had a problem, and if they wanted to!

But the actual “odds” at wining at blackjack are all over the spectrem of opinion and hope. And the word winning must also be defined here. The odds at “winning” one hand are different than winning five hands, which are different than winning ten. The average player plays tens or hundreds of hands in a single trip, and thousands of hands in his lifetime. So winning on one gambling trip doesn’t mean that person is ahead on their life totals. But I guarentee that the last remodel or expansion on your favorite casino was instituted with part of yours and others total losses!

According to Ion Saliu’s Paradox: random generation does not generate all possible combination’s, as the odds that a hand will repeat before all possible hands are dealt are a sure thing. So, to consider the odds, random generation is not an accurate source. If there are 334,490,044 total possible complete hands in blackjack, and we randomly generate 334,490,044 hands, the statistics show that approximately 63% will be unique and 37% will be repeats. (http://saliu.com/blackjack.html)

And the point is… if you can show me a person (besides Rain Man) who can sit down and play that many hands, with no outside influences, with no burned cards, with no change of dealers or bathroom breaks, with no dealer mistakes, and with no sleep… then I will except the odds you come up with.

In other words, whenever you hear someone quote the odds and tell you the right way to play blackjack, they are talking out of their butt – which is where you should tell them to stick their advice! Likewise, if you take advice from a stock broker (who makes money from your wins and your losses regardless) or from the government (who’s investment owned corporations are on the other side of your trade, and who wins your losses) you are a fool, and are playing into the trap of legalized embezzlement through stock market gambling.

In much the same way that you have no way of knowing which card will come out of the blackjack deck next (52 cards means about a 1:52 chance of guessing, or 1:13 on its numerical value), you have no way of knowing what planned or seemingly random events will come out of the world economy that will effect the price index and value of your stock investment. And you have no way of knowing the plans of the elitist money changers (bankers) who control these events and can crash the market at any time through planned events like 9/11 – when unprecidented short positions were put on airline stocks just days before the event (which destroyed the values of airline stocks). The very fact that shorts, derivatives, and other hedges and gambling bets are allowed to be made on stocks should be a huge red flag for who controls and influences the markets.

A “short” is simply placing a bet that a stock will, in a certain amount of time, go down in value. Who in their right mind would want to make a bet like this, without some inside information to support the bet? I see this as no different than being best friends with Don King, and taking his advice on which boxer to bet on as a K.O. in the third round!

So why would you, as a simple working man or woman with none of this foreknowledge, gamble on these things called stocks? Probably the same reason that despite the fact that the odds are totally against you, you willingly and hopefully lay your money down in that little circle on the blackjack table, so that a dealer like I used to be can snatch it up with a look of false surprise, disappointment, empathy and remorse.

The last aspect of this conundrum is this: while you may set your loss limit at $1000 for your gambling trip, the casino has no such limits. It has more money in its coffers than most local banks have in their vaults. Actually, casinos are banks… complete with their own vaults, the highest of high-tec security, and armed guards that collect the money from each table’s drop-box two or three times a day. They even make loans, called markers, to high profile club members whose financial information is on account with the casino. And you must understand that with an unlimited money supply and the odds completely in their favor, the casino is always going to win.

Likewise the government, with it’s unlimited amounts of money – hidden in these investments – has no limit to what it can accomplish to ensure that the odds are in its favor, and that you are distracted through entertainment, and unenlightened by purposefully creating one of the worst education systems in the world. Remember, they can create money anytime they want to. You cannot. The odds are that eventually you will lose enough of your wealth by gambling it in their fixed system (the casino-like stock market) to eliminate any threat you might impose by your insignifigant wealth.

Oh, you’re a millionaire, you say? Well the government has many multiple trillions. A trillion is a million-million. So the government is a millionaire of a whole differant sort. Get over yourself, and fast!

And for the final nail in the coffin…?

If you do somehow get ahead and make a scene, the casino (government) can send in the cleaner – the dealer who can stack the deck and deal from the bottom of it. In other words, the odds we have talked about in this essay are not real, for they are manipulatable just like everything else. And they will never be manipulated in your favor unless you are being set up for a big loss later.

The moral of this story is simply this: invest your money in your home, in your family, and in your community. Charity is now a lost concept, and the thought of giving freely without anything in return has been killed by corporate greed and usury. Imagine if you will, actually giving instead of investing, without a tax write-off or of any expectations of repayment with gains or interest. Imagine building a church, a school, or a public meeting house without gaining anything but the admiration and love of the people around you, and in seeing the benefit it gives to them, and in turn to you. Imagine buying land and putting it into a trust that ensures that it will be in the peoples control and use, and never usurped by government and its corporate interests, and for the next thousand years seeing that community come together and use that land for a community garden to feed everyone in the area.

Reinvestment into the people and communities is the only way to fix what damage has been done to our once great country.

And seperation of the community churches and real charities from corporate interests, ownership, and control is a necesary step in this process.

The power is in the people, despite where the money lies. But only if we use our power and declare this corporation we call our government unlawful, unconstitutional, and downright evil.

And, in one last plea for sanity, if I may be so bold… The only solution I have seen brought forward by any of us to change the country and the world in a complete and lawful way is through Walter Burien’s “Tax Retirement Fund” (TRF). We can talk and anylize and discuss till we are blue in the face, but until this mans efforts are supported, and until Mr. Burien gets some charity of his own by true patriots who stop reveling in the usury and gambling in the corrupt and hopeless markets and banking and profitting from these thieves in government, instead of giving freely and annonomysly, without expectation or financial attachment to men like Walter Burien, our world will just go deeper and deeper into this endless spiral of depression and pestulence through corporate government’s takeover of the world markets and of our very lives.

The Only Products Still Made In America Are Fortune Cookies!


Ok… so this is a bit of an exaggeration.

But as I was siting at Fong’s Chinese restaurant a couple of days ago here in snowy Utah, I noticed that my Chinese food happened to be served on a plate – from China. Then I saw that my plastic water cup was also made in China. My knife and fork? China. The salt and pepper shakers? You guessed it… China.

Finally, at the end of my meal, I was presented with the bill – which was delivered in a fancy black folder similar to ones in many restaurants. Though it had no country of manufacture listed, it appeared to be made in “Mastercard”, since that was the only writing on the folder.

With the bill, of course, came a set of two fortune cookies.

Now, one of the most interesting things about fortune cookies is that they are an American tradition, with roots in… America. The Chinese don’t eat fortune cookies unless they are Americanized! Somehow this ritual of a deep fried batter cookie covering a tiny rectangular paper with a usually inaccurate fortune on one side and some randomly generated numbers on the other has become a tradition with the purveyors and connoisseurs of Chinese food.

Naturally, after attaching “…in bed” to the end of my otherwise typically droll fortune, I examined the wrapper to verify that everything I touched on this delightfully oriental evening had its origins in some other country.

But I was shocked to find out that these cookies were actually made in America! National City, Illinois to be exact. The Baily Fortune Cookie Company. Hmmm…

Now, one might think this was unimportant or hardly worth mentioning. But then I had some shopping to do, and went to a couple of different stores around town. As much as I don’t like shopping at stores like Wall Mart and Target, these happened to be the stores I frequented this night.

As I was searching for a few household necessities at my local “Super Target”, I began to read the labels of the things I was interested in, thinking that maybe I should start practicing what I preach and make sure that I am buying American made products. Now, this is not to be confused with products that are distributed by an American company, for that is just deceptive marketing to hide the country of export by these huge distribution companies that do not ever buy American.

And so, as I glanced at the labels to verify the pride of the U.S.A. in my purchases, I was… disappointed, to say the least. In fact, I was absolutely shocked! There were almost no products in Target that were made in America. Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, and other known sweatshop imported products filled the shelves. And while an occasional Made In America product was prominently featured, most of these were from tried and true conglomerates and mega-corporations that no doubt manufacture in such bulk that their prices can barely (just barely) compete with those of the enslaved third-world. And so the thought of seeing a mom-and-pop produced gadget or gizmo, or at least one that hasn’t been bought up by these large monopolistic conglomerates – who keep the “local” or “small town” name on their hostile taken-over products for marketing purposes – flew right out the window.

In the end, I couldn’t help but buy non-American. I wasn’t sure what I could do about this, but I wondered if this was the case at the other low-price stores…

Wall Mart…

Man, I walked into my local (and I use that word quite ironically) Wall Mart store – again a giant Mega Super Wall Mart – and was by now not so surprised to find the same situation – foreign products distributed by American companies at extremely low prices. On a side note, this whole Wall Mart thing is really eerie. The majority of people who shop there are… interesting. That’s a nice way of saying, “Oh my God! What the hell has happened to Americans?”

And just then, in the middle of a conversation with my roommate about plastic containers, a woman with high died red hair and big glasses buzzed by on a little scooter, slightly slumped over and almost zombie-like in her demeanor. Her legs were crossed and her foot was moving up and down in the passing air as if impatient to get wherever she was going, appearing to be lounging while in motion. We both stopped mid-sentence to bask in the surrealism of this sighting, as would the watchers of a rare bird on expedition. As the scooter traveled past us, contrasting the eerie silence of the monstrous store, we watched in wonder as she circled the center displays with her head unmoving – as if she were too lazy to look left or right. She preceded to circle one small display twice without stopping and then buzzed away into the vast expanse of the mega-store.

Once the belly laughing subsided, we carried on…

Besides the bizarre feeling of walking into this amazingly sterile and yet unfinished warehouse, full of helpers of which half could barely stand on two feet without a walker or some type of mechanical or other support structure due to their obesity or vast array of disabilities, the sheer size of this building was absolutely imperceptible. As I commented on the impossible depth of this particular Wall Mart store to the check-out girl on my way out, she actually noted as if it were a perfectly natural state of being that this was one of the smaller Super-Mega-Wall-Mart’s in the area! I couldn’t comprehend that statement, and so I left with the dour realization that the Made In America label was not to be found in any of these low-budget chain stores.

And so, out of a strict curiosity, mixed with a bit of alarmist disposition, I decided to upgrade…

I went to Macy’s!

Now, surely the reason that Macy’s is so damn expensive is that this chain store is as old as the history of department stores themselves. I mean, the store that is able to put on the all-American Macy’s Day Parade each year that is so cherished by America, must be because they are selling higher cost, well made American products instead of importing from sweatshops overseas… Right?

Wrong.

I was deeply disappointed to find out, as I examined the labels on most of their popular products, that these too were made in China, Bangladesh, India, Vietnam, Cambodia, etc, etc, etc…

Now, why is this such an important aspect of the economy of our great country, and important enough to devote the time and energy to write about this to the 3 regular readers of my humble blog?

Why indeed. Let’s start with what is being ridiculously called the “jobless recovery”. There are some words that cannot be used in a sentence. Jobless and recovery are two perfect examples of these types of words, especially if they are back to back. Of course, there are always exceptions to this rule, like: “How in the hell can you have a jobless recovery you stupid dumb-head num-nums?” I’d say in this case, the combination works.

But all jokes aside… the fact that we as the American people have been slowly manipulated into consistently buying foreign, cheaply made, disposable (to ensure repurchase) products is a most heinous consumerist conspiracy, whether is was intentional or not (and it was intentional), it is and has been slowly destroying the economy and the manufacturing and production value of our entire nation. And at this point, that value and pride of production is almost completely vanished. A whole generation is now being brought up thinking that this is somehow normal and acceptable. And these same kids will grow up with their only job options being in the service industry. Bankers, customer service, check-out clerks, police, government, forced volunteerism (Obama-corps)… or in other support functions such as IT, computer software, computer programmer, technical support, or any number of non-producing, non-relevant jobs. And as the products they continue to blindly purchase from increasingly less quality sources become more poisonous and more disposable, they wont have any frame of reference to compare their way of life and their consumerism to in order to save their own economic viability and for that matter, their humanity.

In fact, I’m not sure why this country is even still in business. The money is printed (electronically) out of thin air based on a fractional reserve system that recently decided to allow banks to make loans with zero percent monetary reserves in its accounts, meaning banks can now just loan all of the imaginary money they want at the behest of our government and the private corporate Federal Reserve with just a note in their little journals. Imagine that! Free money! Well, free except for the debt attached to that imaginary money that will enslave this whole generation of service industry workers to their beholden corporate-government rulers.

And don’t even get me started on the government’s derivatives, which will attach so much debt to this generation that their great-great-great-great grandchildren will wonder at the ignorance of their forefathers of today as they scrap for tidbits of food left over from the most recent bankers convention.

“All restaurants are now Taco Bell…”

I wonder at this phenomenon, sometimes as if I’m the only one that can see.

I hear my friends say: I love the Martha Stewart collection, and isn’t her show just wonderful? She can do so many things. And I have to stop what I’m doing and thinking and tear off into some angry rant! You think Martha Stewart cooks? Give me a break. Her people do that. You think those pre-prepared dishes are done by this Benedict Arnold of a Judas? You think Martha makes all of her clothing and accessories for the home? No… she sold her name like so many other celebrities for millions of dollars plus royalties to a conglomerate U.S. corporation that purchases everything that Martha Stewart ‘s name gets placed upon in third world sweatshops and factories. Then, while she laughs all the way to the bank, us stupid Americans consume these cheep foreign products without even a hint of their origin, as American companies continuously lay off their own factory workers who are then forced to shop at stores like Wall Mart for their low low prices, which then in a full Euroborus (snake devouring its own tail) type of circle forces more American workers to be laid off due to their purchasing of almost exclusively foreign made products.

I can’t go on. I see… but I am in a room full of blind people eating fortune cookies and I am trying to describe the color red… as in red alert!

God save us all.
