5 things the Government DOES NOT want you to know!

Since Roswell, the government (US) has been keeping little secrets here and there over the years. Area 51, The truth of the Bermuda Triangle, Ark of the Covenant etc.

Since Project Blue book closed down, we haven’t heard of any juicy secrets that the government doesn’t want us to know. Until now.

So here is a look at them and if you don’t see a fresh post by me on Monday, then I have been silenced dear readers.

  1. Taxation. We are led to believe that taxes go to paying for government expenditures, infrastructure and some foreign aide projects. Not so says an inside top bureaucrat. ” Actually, your taxes go to China and they do not pass go! We owe China so much money that we do not have a snowball chance in hell of every paying them back.”

According to Ron Paul, a member of the house banking committee, we owe Chinaabout 2 & 1/2 trillion American dollars.

China gets American dollars when they sell us stuff made in China. Instead of sitting on the dollars they buy American interest bearing Treasury Bills & Treasury Bonds, which would have different maturity dates. These Gvt. issues can also be rolled over when the maturity date arrives.

It’s a distinct possibility that it may never be paid off or paid back because the numbers are so high. (Emphasis mine)

These American dollar debt obligations can be sold or traded by China at any time provided a buyer is found.

If the Fed is ordered by Congress to buy them back, it would probably be at a very deeply discounted price, which would show the worlds bankers exactly how unsound dollars have become.
If the Fed buys huge amounts of Treasury debt, it can be assumed the national debt {about 9 trillion dollars} would be owed to the Fed, which apparently is owned by the wealthiest bankers in the world, not the American people.

Now do you see why Ron Paul wants to abolish the Fed?

2. John Kerry is a Soviet spy. Unfortunately, there is no proof on paper of this , but I have seen The Manchurian Candidate so, there you go.

3. The Fed is an unconstitutional institution.  And yes dear readers, there is proof. Watch this little video. I am not sure why people are not actively taking to the streets and protesting this alone. it is bad enough that we are all spiraling out of debt, but the fact that the Fed is making more money of of you than is allowed for by the Constitution?  Write your local congressman today and END THE FED!

4. Michael Ignatieff in Canada is actually a pod person sent by the American government to infiltrate Canadian politics with blandness. Not sure if you noticed, but Canadian politics and history, have always been bland, other than WWI and WWII where we kicked serious ass. Then we became tepid tea drinkers afraid to offend anyone, or anything.

And the top thing that the government does NOT WANT YOU to know about is that, yes,American Idol really has sucked since Simon Cowell ( a Brit) left the show. People want to see tears and ridicule. If they want talent, they will put on a Beatles, Led Zep, Pink Floyd or Stones album. Talented musicians last made a guest appearancee with Blind Mellon and Shannon Hoon.

PS: VOTE RON PAUL. HE IS YOUR LAST CHANCE!!

Pirates in the Caribbean, not just a movie. Another group of pirates (Muslim Somalis) taking hostages in the Indian Ocean. CNN has the story, but I wonder if they will exclude any relevant facts like they did when the 4 Americans were kliled by Somali pirates.  In that story, the world media outlets neglected to tell the reason why those 4 Americans were in these troubled waters..

They were Christians, handing out Bibles. Do you think that is what got them killed? Dollars to donuts, I’d say yes.

Now it is early in this particular story, but as I read any major news outlet version of the story, I am left wondering what they have left out. Now, I am not saying that the media might be biased, or afraid to call a spade a spade, (snicker,snicker) but it be in all of our best interests if we stopped taking what they were giving us at face value.

Like the American government saying “No more taxes”, or “There were no arms deals to the Contras” (Remember those fairy tales and other lies your step mother told you?) We are being herded like sheep to a cattle car. Slightly nervous about why we are being rounded up, but not terribly afraid as everyone seems to be going along with it, and the media and the government is after all, telling us it is for our own good.

Ollie North! Come back! We need you!

Canada, U.S. agree to use each other’s troops in civil emergencies

Canada, U.S. agree to use each other’s troops in civil emergencies.

Very disturbing. In 1992, Clinton had signed a similar agreement with the United nations giving the UN military control over the US in case of “civil unrest.” The reasoning from one account that I read was that American troops were less likely to fire upon fellow Americans in time of war.

Now we see that agreement broadening.

evidence of a plan for a “North American union” where foreign troops, not bound by U.S. laws, could be used by the American federal government to override local authorities.

“Co-operative militaries on Home Soil!” notes one website. “The next time your town has a ‘national emergency,’ don’t be surprised if Canadian soldiers respond. And remember — Canadian military aren’t bound by posse comitatus. “~Canada.com

I wonder how far that this is going to go? How many liberties are we going to give up? Cries of “Arbeit Mach Frei” call across the decades. We have learned nothing if we let our freedoms erode into an ocean of complacency. Six million souls went to slaughter and the world slept. Arbeit Mach Frei.

Unemployment: Day unknown

Another job that I didn’t get although I would have been great at it. Men’s Outreach Coordinator. And I don’t even have a lick of Scotch in the house to nurse my ego.

This is getting frustrating to be sure. I am like a million other people in North America (actually it’s more but a million is easy to spell) and every day that I am not working is frankly getting a little harder to deal with.

Bills, mortgages, bills,  kids in hockey, kids in guitar, kids in this, kids in that. I am not going to let my kids feel the pinch just quite yet. I just can’t do that. Some may say that is being foolish, but I am honest.

On the lighter and brighter side, this has given me a great opportunity to paint the kitchen and the kitchen cupboards. I have gone out for coffee more than I have in the past ten years and that is okay too.

I amat least not guilty of  forging those chains like the late Mr.Marley. Maybe I will end up in Saskatoon. Montreal or Ottawa. Maybe Boston. Bean Town is a good town, some good folks in Boston. Read more…

Doctors in Madison. Gunships in Tripoli

A nice short post at the Volokh Conspiracy this morning about the doctors that were handing out notes excusing workers from work. The writer states a fine point;  ” These doctors sacrificed a slice of the medical profession’s credibility for a political cause. Was it worth it? The fallout is mounting” The political pressure from the left is mounting. Using every tactic possible, they consider democracy a good thing, only when it goes toward their favor.

Fast track to Tripoli. People are being shot for walking in the streets as Gadhafi wants to hold onto his power, even at the cost of his own people. Is that so far removed from what is happening in Wisconsin and soon, to a town near you? People of all political stripes seem to be discontent with their lot in life. In Wisconsin, the marchers feel that they are being threatened by losing their ability for collective bargaining. The governor says too bad. He says they are costing tax payers too much money.

If you don’t believe that this will come to a town near you, from the WSJ: “The clash between Republicans and unions that caught fire in Wisconsin last week escalated Monday: Labor leaders planned to take their protests to dozens of other capitals and Democrats in a second state considered a walkout to stall bills that would limit union power.” (emphasis mine)

There is no longer a case of “majority rules” in the United States. The few, pressure the many. I would use the term “coerce”. In Wisconsin, union employees acccount for less than 15 percent of the working population, yet, they seem to be making the biggest noise. The average American (or Canadian) does not get increases in their salaries that match the cost of living increases.

Unions routinely get 2, 3, 5 and even 10% increases in their agreements. When I worked in sales for the past seven years, the only time I got “increases” would be when I worked for them by increased sales. The dinosaur model of the trade union has a different mind set, a mind set of entitlement.

I wonder when we are going to become like Tripoli. With gunships imposing martial type law because the few demand from the many.

Growing Population Fights for Fewer Resources

It’s a sign of Armageddon. We are living the dream of consumption. The American dream that was heard around the world. Consumerism has led to an explosion. Foreign aide only increases the surface population.

Now, I know that this going to be an atypical rant, but when scientist’s get together and agree on something like “global warming” (snicker, snicker) then we as a people must unite and stop the madness. Let’s end all foreign aide to developing countries. Their hungry cries can’t be heard if I am not listening! heck, lets just pave Africa! It can be an international airport, connecting North America to Europa!

Of course it will be North America leading the way for family planning because Third World nations refuse to do so. Therefore, we will be ceremoniously guilted into doing it. Let’s begin with Al Gore! Lead on Al!! Lead on!!

Lets end all drug rehab. Let’s stop losing fine men and women in uniform in the war on drugs. Let the druggies begin killing themselves and then when there are not so many kingpins and bobby pins, then we can allocate some police members to fight the war.

Growing population fights for fewer resources – News1130.

Lets eat more plants! (of course if we eat more plants, then poor baby seals will die in the wilderness, and the baby deer, the antelope)

The plus side is that obesity rates may go down somewhat, although, unfortunately, not because of an exercise program.

Wisconsin protests: why ‘week of rage’ matters to rest of America – CSMonitor.com.

“In a time when large and tense demonstrations have become increasingly rare in America, the Wisconsin protests could provide an Egypt-like moment, says Norman Ornstein, a fellow at the nonpartisan American Enterprise Institute in Washington.”

“We have finally come in Madison to the basic question: will voters control government and public policy, or will the unions?  Don’t kid yourselves into thinking the unions don’t understand that, either.  They know exactly what’s at stake in the Battle of Mad Town, and that’s why they’re throwing everything they have into winning it.” ~ Hot Air

The snowball effect.The domino theory. In the Middle East, we see the Islamic Brotherhood gaining control through civil unrest. Now, in America, the potential spread of the disease is taking up residence in state capitols. Coming soon to a government near you! We could get Oliver Stone and Sean Penn to direct the feature film. This is the beginning of the socialization of America. Unions have always played a big part in her politics.

The Democratic left has been a mainstay of the trade unions for as long as trade unions have been in existence. As they grow with age, these political dinosaurs still litter the landscape, not knowing that it is time to wander off into the sunset and die gracefully. In today’s economy, there has to be a better solution by all parties to move away from unions and their archaic thinking. If there is a progressive union in America, please, let me know. I know of one in Canada, but that is about it.

Time for dancing around the mulberry bush. The only way to keep jobs in America, iunion and non union is this:

Employees need to make concessions to their employers. (Fairly, without high priced lawyers and negotiators)

Employers need to make concessions to their employees. (Fairly, without high priced lawyers and negotiators)

Government has to make it attractive to want to do business in North America. The government has to be a government of the people, for the people, by the people.

There is no reason unionists and non-unionists cannot coexist for the mutual good. That mutual good?

America. Canada.
