The anti-capitalist movement known as Occupy Wall Street says things like corporations who spend their own money to explore, find, and drill for oil has no right to it. It belongs to the world.
The anti-capitalist movement Occupy Wall Street says things like we should ration the food and the things we have. That corporations shouldn't be allowed produce it in the methods in which a capitalist state brings to market these products.
Now let's have no doubt here. Occupy Wall Street represents a statist view in which the redistribution of wealth is robbed from corporations and its investors and handed over to a strong central government. This is what Karl Marx wrote of in the Communist Manifesto, and this same redistribution of wealth theme is exactly what the IB pushes.
All of this suddenly reminded me of a conference in Texas the IB held, which they featured a speaker and proudly displayed their anti-capitalist guilt trip for Americans everywhere on their Web site.
“The mindset of scarcity is so pervasive“
BY LAURA JOYCE | PUBLISHED: JULY 22, 2011
Aruna Kharod reports back after attending Khaled Hosseini’s plenary session on the second day of the conference.
“In America, we are so used to abundance in everyday life—everything, from food to daily necessities is there at our fingertips. So why do we constantly feel as if something in our lives is lacking? Perhaps it is because “the mindset of scarcity is so pervasive”, as Khaled Hosseini suggests.
We are raised in a society that constantly strives for superlatives—the most expensive clothes, the biggest house, the highest income. This kind of focus, in my opinion, is shallow because we can easily forget that there are others in the world who have so much less than we do, and yet are satisfied with their lives.
The Khaled Hosseini Foundation aims to enlighten and empower students to act on their sentiment and reach out. Through a UN partnership, the foundation provides Afghani refugees with materials and knowledge to build a small shelter. Students can help, too—a $1500 donation can buy the necessary materials.
Hosseini’s observations were eye-opening for me and I am anxious to spread the message and act on the sentiment of goodwill by doing what I can; I want to spread the knowledge through my school this coming year.”
Why would an organization that is supposedly a product for better education, like the Ozark School Board suggest, trying to make Americans, specifically American school children, feel guilty about their abundance and rewards of hard work?
Simple, the more guilt you feel, the more likely you are to accept the idea the current free market practices in America are evil, which will lead you down the slippery slope of the real IB agenda which is:
Earth worship (pantheism).
Income redistribution among nations and within nations.
Contraception and “reproductive health” rights (inc., legal abortion).
World-wide “education for sustainability” which means planned communities and citizens told where they must live.
Debt forgiveness and different standards for third-world nations.
Adoption of gay rights and the right of children to all sexual materials and literature.
Elimination of any right to bear arms.
Environmental extremist positions, including global warming, bans on pesticides and genetically enhanced vegetables.
Setting aside biosphere reserves where no human presence is allowed, which means the government may come in and take your land for its own higher purposes — something that is now being debated in a case before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Don't take my word for it. Do some research and you will see how the IB aligned itself with radical agendas like Earth Charter and Agenda 21. Know the IB is a product and is endorsed by the United Nations. This stuff isn't hard to find, but for some reason, most parents in Ozark remain lazy and only hear the words better education.
Now we know one famous American President warned of this warfare state. You may remember Dwight David Eisenhower's famous farewell address where he discusses how an out of control military industrial complex is a threat to freedom and liberty.
Today Ron Paul talks about the military state and how it defies the Constitution, which gives the federal government only the power to provide a common defense. Now the federal government is engaged in creating war, something that hardly seems American, and despite Paul's efforts to put a stop to American aggression overseas, the military industrial complex continues to push for more war paying off the politicians to turn a blind eye to the Constitution in favor of more war.
Today, I want you to think about the United States' constant state of war, and then I want you to read Senator George Frisbie Hoar's speech that serves as pre-cursor to how this aggression is taking its toll on liberty and freedom. Senator Hoar gives examples of the costs to America in his time as he addressed the Senate in 1902. Today, his speech still has relevance as Americans are giving up their lives as our federal government pretends its democracy they hope to spread around the world.
Here's Hoar's speech:
Born in 1826, died in 1904; Member of Congress from Massachusetts in 1869–77; Member of the Electoral Commission in 1877; United States Senator from 1877 until his death.
WE 1 have to deal with a territory ten thousand miles away, twelve hundred miles in extent, containing ten million people. A majority of the Senate think that people are under the American flag and lawfully subject to our authority. We are not at war with them or with anybody. The country is in a condition of profound peace as well as of unexampled prosperity. The world is in a profound peace, except in one quarter, in South Africa, where a handful of republicans are fighting for their independence, and have been doing better fighting than has been done on the face of the earth since Thermopylæ, or certainly since Bannockburn. 1
You are fighting for sovereignty. You are fighting for the principle of eternal dominion over that people, and that is the only question in issue in the conflict. We said in the case of Cuba that she had a right to be free and independent. We affirmed in the Teller resolution, I think without a negative voice, that we would not invade that right and would not meddle with her territory or anything that belonged to her. That declaration was a declaration of peace as well as of righteousness; and we made the treaty, so far as concerned Cuba, and conducted the war and have conducted ourselves ever since on that theory—that we had no right to interfere with her independence; that we had no right to her territory or to anything that was Cuba's. So we only demanded in the treaty that Spain should hereafter let her alone. If you had done to Cuba as you have done to the Philippine Islands, who had exactly the same right, you would be at this moment, in Cuba, just where Spain was when she excited the indignation of the civilized world and we compelled her to let go. And if you had done in the Philippines as you did in Cuba, you would be to-day or would soon be in those islands as you are in Cuba. 2
But you made a totally different declaration about the Philippine Islands. You undertook in the treaty to acquire sovereignty over her for yourself, which that people denied. You declared not only in the treaty, but in many public utterances in this Chamber and elsewhere, that you had a right to buy sovereignty with money, or to treat it as the spoils of war or the booty of battle. The moment you made that declaration the Filipino people gave you notice that they treated it as a declaration of war. So your generals reported, and so Aguinaldo expressly declared. In stating this account of profit and loss I hardly know which to take up first, principles and honor, or material interests—I should have known very well which to have taken up first down to three years ago—what you call the sentimental, the ideal, the historical on the right side of the column; the cost or the profit in honor or shame and in character and in principle and moral influence, in true national glory; or the practical side, the cost in money and gain, in life and health, in wasted labor, in diminished national strength, or in prospects of trade and money getting. 3
What has been the practical statesmanship which comes from your ideals and your sentimentalities. You have wasted nearly six hundred millions of treasure. You have sacrificed nearly ten thousand American lives—the flower of our youth. You have devastated provinces. You have slain uncounted thousands of the people you desire to benefit. You have established reconcentration camps. Your generals are coming home from their harvest bringing sheaves with them, in the shape of other thousands of sick and wounded and insane to drag out miserable lives, wrecked in body and mind. You make the American flag in the eyes of a numerous people the emblem of sacrilege in Christian churches, and of the burning of human dwellings, and of the horror of the water torture. Your practical statesmanship which disdains to take George Washington and Abraham Lincoln or the soldiers of the Revolution or of the Civil War as models, has looked in some cases to Spain for your example. I believe—nay, I know—that in general our officers and soldiers are humane. But in some cases they have carried on your warfare with a mixture of American ingenuity and Castilian cruelty. 4
Your practical statesmanship has succeeded in converting a people who three years ago were ready to kiss the hem of the garment of the American and to welcome him as a liberator, who thronged after your men when they landed on those islands with benediction and gratitude, into sullen and irreconciliable enemies, possessed of a hatred which centuries can not eradicate. 5
The practical statesmanship of the Declaration of Independence and the Golden Rule would have cost nothing but a few kind words. They would have bought for you the great title of liberator and benefactor, which your fathers won for your country in the South American Republics and in Japan, and which you have won in Cuba. They would have bought for you undying gratitude of a great and free people and the undying glory which belongs to the name of liberator. That people would have felt for you as Japan felt for you when she declared last summer that she owed everything to the United States of America. 6
What have your ideals cost you, and what have they bought for you? 7
1. For the Philippine Islands you have had to repeal the Declaration of Independence. 8
For Cuba you had to reaffirm it and give it new luster. 9
2. For the Philippine Islands you have had to convert the Monroe Doctrine into a doctrine of mere selfishness. 10
For Cuba you have acted on it and vindicated it. 11
3. In Cuba you have got the eternal gratitude of a free people. 12
In the Philippine Islands you have got the hatred and sullen submission of a subjugated people. 13
4. From Cuba you have brought home nothing but glory. 14
From the Philippines you have brought home nothing of glory. 15
5. In Cuba no man thinks of counting the cost. The few soldiers who came home from Cuba wounded or sick carry about their wounds and their pale faces as if they were medals of honor. What soldier glories in a wound or an empty sleeve which he got in the Philippines? 16
6. The conflict in the Philippines has cost you six hundred million dollars, thousands of American soldiers—the flower of your youth—the health and sanity of thousands more, and hundreds of thousands of Filipinos slain. 17
Another price we have paid as the result of your practical statesmanship. We have sold out the right, the old American right, to speak out the sympathy which is in our hearts for people who are desolate and oppressed everywhere on the face of the earth. 18
This war, if you call it war, has gone on for three years. It will go on in some form for three hundred years, unless this policy be abandoned. You will undoubtedly have times of peace and quiet, or pretended submission. You will buy men with titles, or office, or salaries. You will intimidate cowards. You will get pretended and fawning submission. The land will smile and seem at peace. But the volcano will be there. The lava will break out again. You can never settle this thing until you settle it right. 19
Gentlemen tell us that the Filipinos are savages, that they have inflicted torture, that they have dishonored our dead and outraged the living. That very likely may be true. Spain said the same thing of the Cubans. We have made the same charges against our own countrymen in the disturbed days after the war. The reports of committees and the evidence in the documents in our library are full of them. But who ever heard before of an American gentleman, or an American, who took as a rule for his own conduct the conduct of his antagonist, or who claimed that the Republic should act as savages because she had savages to deal with? I had supposed, Mr. President, that the question, whether a gentleman shall lie or murder or torture, depended on his sense of his own character, and not on his opinion of his victim. Of all the miserable sophistical shifts which have attended this wretched business from the beginning, there is none more miserable than this. 20
Mr. President, this is the eternal law of human nature. You may struggle against it, you may try to escape it, you may persuade yourself that your intentions are benevolent, that your yoke will be easy and your burden will be light, but it will assert itself again. Government without the consent of the government—an authority which heaven never gave—can only be supported by means which heaven never can sanction. 21
The American people have got this one question to answer. They may answer it now; they can take ten years, or twenty years, or a generation, or a century to think of it. But it will not down. They must answer it in the end: Can you lawfully buy with money, or get by brute force of arms, the right to hold in subjugation an unwilling people, and to impose on them such constitution as you, and not they, think best for them. 22
We have answered this question a good many times in the past. The fathers answered it in 1776, and founded the Republic upon their answer, which has been the corner-stone. John Quincy Adams and James Monroe answered it again in the Monroe doctrine, which John Quincy Adams declared was only the doctrine of the consent of the governed. The Republican party answered it when it took possession of the force of government at the beginning of the most brilliant period in all legislative history. Abraham Lincoln answered it when, on that fatal journey to Washington in 1861, he announced that the doctrine of his political creed, and declared, with prophetic vision, that he was ready to be assassinated for it if need be. You answered it again yourselves when you said that Cuba, who had no more title than the people of the Philippine Islands had to their independence, of right ought to be free and independent. 23
The question will be answered again hereafter. It will be answered soberly and deliberately and quietly as the American people are wont to answer great questions of duty. It will be answered, not in any turbulent assembly, amid shouting and clapping of hands and stamping of feet, where men do their thinking with their heels and not with their brains. It will be answered in the churches and in the schools and in the colleges; and it will be answered in fifteen million American homes; and it will be answered as it has always been answered. It will be answered right. 24
Note 1. From a speech in the United States Senate in May, 1902.
"The jerk in the White House was giving out dried fruit!"
That's because the Obamas, who are often seen munching down on junk food are giving out dried fruit at the White House this year for Trick or Treaters. These hypocrites are giving out fruit and probably stuffing their own faces with candy behind closed doors.
Trick or Treaters should give this guy a trick!
The character assassinations are beginning for Herman Cain.
During Herman Cain’s tenure as the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, at least two female employees complained to colleagues and senior association officials about inappropriate behavior by Cain, ultimately leaving their jobs at the trade group, multiple sources confirm to POLITICO.
The women complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Cain that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them financial payouts to leave the association. The agreements also included language that bars the women from talking about their departures.
Now why is it, that when Barack Obama was president, the media ignored allegations of serious drug use, a gay love affair with Larry Sinclair, and of course the fact Barack Obama sat in front of Reverent Jeremiah Wright, the American hating preacher, for nearly 20 years? Could it be because Barack Obama fits the mold of what the mainstream media and the left wants the black man to look like in America--that is they can be lifted out of poverty but only if they pledge their allegiance to the Democratic party?
But of course.

Ozark Mountain Meats is located at 1865 Camelot Drive in Ozark, Missouri.
Just when you thought the Occupy Wall Street movement couldn't get much weirder, it does. Some armed Neo-Nazis have joined the Occupy Phonix protest armed with AR-15 rifles to protect the First Amendment rights of the protesters.
Paul Joseph Watson reports:
Armed citizen militia group US Border Guard is making its presence felt at the Occupy Phoenix demonstration to protect free speech rights, arguing that the second amendment prevents the state from abusing the first amendment.
The group has been labeled “neo-nazis” by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is usually a demonization tactic, but the individual shown in the clip, “JT Ready” has attended neo-nazi rallies and is closely affiliated with the fringe National Socialist Party.

Congratulations to the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals. They are a study in mind over reality. In July, baseball season seemed done for me as my three favorite teams were pretty much out of contention. Of course, that's the mentality in America these days. Give up. It's too hard.
That's the path the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals took. Rather than complain about being more than 10 games out, they decided to do something about it. And when their championship hopes looked done and they were down to one strike left on a couple of occasions they did something about it. And this morning, they are waking up as World Series Champions for the 11th time in their great history as the most successful National League franchise of all time.
Congratulations to the 2011 redbirds! Everyone counted them out except for themselves. Their belief in themselves gave them the ability to accomplish the impossible in what may be the single greatest championship run in baseball history.
Now it will be interesting to watch whether or not one of the greatest players ever to wear the Cardinal uniform will be signed as a free agent this off season. All eyes will be on Albert Pujols.

Of course dancing with modern pop music that is deeply written with sexually suggestive themes is anything but educational, yet students are being forced to participate as the school board is promising better education for Ozark students. Once again, the values of those running Ozark schools should be placed under the microscope and we should look at this term better education and what it really means for the administrators and school board.
From 11:00 this morning on, Ozark junior high school students will be led to the dance floor where they will be robbed of reading, writing, and arithmetic in exchange for Lady Gaga music.
This is just less than a week removed from the junior high's music departments tribute to an alleged pedophile who overdosed on drugs as the junior high choir paid tribute to Michael Jackson with a disturbing solo by one kid singing:
Nothin' Can Stop This Burnin'
Desire To Be With You
Gotta Get To You Baby
Won't You Come, It's Emergency
Cool My Fire Yearnin'
Honey, Come Set Me Free
Don't You Know Now Is The Perfect Time
We Can Dim The Lights
Just To Make It Right
In The Night
Hit The Lovin' Spot
I'll Give You All That I've Got
Oh yes, better education on display at Ozark schools. "Hit the lovin' spot" sung in front of smiling parents by a 13 year old! Geez! Principle Jeff Simpson and Assistant Principle Jeff Strickler should be ashamed this was sung considering the sexual nature of Michael Jackson's PYT (Pretty Young Thing) under their watch. How 'bout some traditional education?
In a new poll, where Obama is losing to the pathetic field of Republicans led by Mitt for Brains Romney, the inspiration for Obamacare, Hillary beats all the candidates.
A new Time magazine poll shows Clinton easily defeating the major Republican candidates, were she somehow to become the 2012 Democratic nominee for president.
Clinton leads Mitt Romney, 55% to 38%; Rick Perry, 58% to 32%; and Herman Cain, 56% to 34%, among likely voters in a general election.
Republicans better wake up and realize this election isn't a shoe in and their candidates don't inspire the American people. Considering the Clinton's love of power that Mordor on the Potomac unconstitutionally promises, you know they are paying attention to these polls.
As the Rangers hit two home runs in a row last night and I was tormented by bobble error after bobble error, I didn't know how bad the Cardinals wanted it. And then they got serious. A missed catch at third base by David Freeze was soon forgiven at two bats when the local play from west St. Louis county delivered a triple to keep the game alive and send it to extra innings followed by a game winning walk-off homer at next bat.
Perhaps this is the best picture of the 2011 World Series, unless of course you are George W. Bush, Nolan Ryan, or a Ranger fan.
David Freese's home run will rank in Cardinal history as one of the greatest along side Ozzie Smith's game winning homer.
As well, St. Louis may be a boarded up city where homelessness is rampant these days, but this game reminds many who follow St. Louis sports of the Blues amazing playoff victory against the Calgary Flames called the Monday Night Miracle.
I am sure the title Thursday Night Miracle will stick in the mind of St. Louis sports fans. See the parallels?
Jill Filipovic packed in her luggage some personal items which grabbed one Perv of TSA agent's attention. The TSA agent noted he saw the sex toy she packed by writing a little note on the notification that let Filipovic know her Fourth Amendment right was violated by the federal government.
When Filipovic unpacked her luggage, she found the following note referring to the sex toy:
“[The TSA] has initiated action to remove the individual from federal service,” a TSA spokesperson said. “Like all federal employees, this individual is entitled to due process and protected by the Privacy Act. During the removal action process, the employee will not perform any screening duties.”
Unfortunately, the TSA and the Department of Homeland Security no longer believes people like Jill is entitled to Due Process including the requirement for a search order before federal thugs go through her luggage.
Thursday, October 27, 2011
Upon going through the luggage of blogger Jill Filipovic, the TSA left their familiar mark to notify the traveler their Fourth Amendment right had just been violated by a government thug who serves Mordor on the Potomac. This notification was different because the TSA agent left Filipovic a note that alluded they had seen the sex toy.
The TSA announced yesterday that the offending worker has been removed from checking baggage, yet Filipovic, who is also a lawyer, says the TSA, along with the corporate media, is completely missing the point.
Writing on her blog, Filipovic states:
“It’s easy to scape-goat one individual here, but the problem with the note is that it’s representative of the bigger privacy intrusions that the U.S. government, through the TSA and other sources, levels every day,”
“The invasion is inherent to the TSA’s mission, regardless of whether a funny note is left behind — the note only serves to highlight the absurdity of all this security theater,” she continued.
“As much as this is a funny and titillating story, when I put the note on Twitter for what I thought was a relatively limited audience I was hoping it would open up a bigger conversation about privacy rights (or lack thereof) in post-9/11 America,” she added.
“It unfortunately hasn’t done that, and instead has turned into a media circus. I would imagine that the TSA agent in question feels the same way I do at this point: I just want this story to go away.”
That should make you better. The perv is no longer going through bags for the TSA; however, they aren't in the unemployment line either.
Filpovic did get it right. The TSA represents the violation of privacy and the federal government's total disregard to the right to privacy guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment.
Obama Prepares to Create More Professional Debtors Through the Federal Student Loan Program: Pass Debt Off to Taxpayers
Obama will announce his Student Stimulus plan in order to expand this federal entrapment. Of course, all of this is cleverly timed to begin working on the young base that embraced Obama four years ago and propelled him to an office he was hardly qualified for.
The stimulus doesn't just encourage more students to go into debt. It promise them they will only pay a fraction of that debt, and the American taxpayer will have to pick up the rest of the tab, which is scary considering Americans are over $1 trillion in student loan debt.
In keeping with his new campaign theme of “we can’t wait,” President Obama today will roll out a plan to put more money in the pockets of some of the nation’s 36 million student loan recipients.
Obama has broad latitude in this area – certainly broader than the first two parts of his western campaign trip, underwater mortgages and subsidies for hiring veterans – because one of his early legislative initiatives was to have the federal government take over the student lending business in America.
Obama argued for the measure in 2009 as a cost-savings initiative, saying that the old system of privately issued, government secured loans reduced the amount of available money for needy students and also prevented the feds from making the system more efficient.
But Obama is now seeking to use that new power to obtain a taxpayer-financed stimulus that Congress won’t approve. The idea is to cap student loan repayment rates at 10 percent of a debtor’s income that goes above the poverty line, and then limiting the life of a loan to 20 years.
Take this example: If Suzy Creamcheese gets into George Washington University and borrows from the government the requisite $212,000 to obtain an undergraduate degree, her repayment schedule will be based on what she earns. If Suzy opts to heed the president’s call for public service, and takes a job as a city social worker earning $25,000, her payments would be limited to $1,411 a year after the $10,890 of poverty-level income is subtracted from her total exposure.
Twenty years at that rate would have taxpayers recoup only $28,220 of their $212,000 loan to Suzy.
So basically, Obama is expanding student loan enslavement to taxpayers from the student who borrows. The student will still have a student loan bill but eventually it will get passed on to the taxpayer, which basically puts America on pace for socialized state-sponsored college. I wonder what these students will think when budgets determine who gets to go to college and who doesn't. They won't be cheering Obama at that point, but of course he will be long forgotten about.
Intellistreets is furthering the belief that government has the right to
New street lights that include “Homeland Security” applications including speaker systems, motion sensors and video surveillance are now being rolled out with the aid of government funding.
The Intellistreets system comprises of a wireless digital infrastructure that allows street lights to be controlled remotely by means of a ubiquitous wi-fi link and a miniature computer housed inside each street light, allowing for “security, energy management, data harvesting and digital media,” according to the Illuminating Concepts website.
"We came, we saw, he died." Still she can't explain the billions of dollars the feds sent to the Ghadaffi's central bank of Libya before the US decided to turn against Ghadaffi.
The Energy Department’s $730 million conditional loan commitment to Severstal, a Russian company led by a multibillionaire, has come under fire from Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
"The government is taking the risk, but getting the short end of the reward," the California Republican told Fox News about the project designed to improve an advanced high-strength steel plant in Dearborn, Michigan.
Severstal is controlled by Alexei Mordashov, a chief executive whose net worth is listed at $18.5 billion by Forbes magazine, and is known to have close ties to the Kremlin.

Please note this is not a reaction to the rallies and the solutions they propose themselves
So we posted the 99% declarations in their entirety a few days back, pretty much stating that they are at least thinking about creating their own representative government to tell the big boys that they don't like what's up. Anyway, here's that reaction post that was promised. Be sure to have that post open in a different tab so you can flip between the posts.
The points that are valid in my book include; point 1, (only partially; I believe that either corps need to be capped like individuals, or the individuals need that cap removed), point 3 for removing conflicts of interest, point 4 for dictating the side a politician should take on an issue through gifts or money transfers, point 8 (which is incompatible with a lot of other points by the way), point 9 for bringing up a generation of Americans that can actually compete with the world job market, point 11, point 12, point 13 (except for that green energy pitch there, but I'm sure we'll get there; don't need to rush it), point 14, point 16 with a vengeance! My views on how to get competitive with the world job market differ than these guys though, and I'll get into that in a second.
All the other points are irrelevant or would lead to a socialist Valhalla. Point 2 falls into irrelevance because all speech is protected unanimously under the First Amendment. Some people speak with their mouths (like these guys are doing) and other speak with money. When you go to buy something, you speak (or vote, as the common saying goes), with your dollars. Viewpoints go that way too.I'll semi-agree to point 5 as the tax code does indeed need reformation. All the credits make the tax code extremely complicated and most tend to serve special interests (as most of them require a purchase to redeem). However, graduating income taxes are what we have now. It won't fix a thing. Instead, I propose this. Income tax and all the credits that go with it go away. Beautiful.
Point 6? In their dreams. Not happening.
Point 7? Well, I stand against government and regulatory body power, so you could see how I would feel about this one. No regulatory should gain more power and I would venture to say that we should lower the amount of power these bodies have as well as completely dismantle some of them (here's a good one to start with).
Point 8 starts out good, but gets flawed as you begin to read in to it. It directly conflicts with point 6, which is about the single-payer healthcare system nonsense and the medicare. Instead, how's about we get the FDA to loosen up some testing requirements to make medicine cheaper, which is the language of that point.
Point 10 sucks. Big time. Forcing a tax surcharge on the corporations to help pay student loans will add another bullet point to why to avoid this country, instead; let the corporations pay for the education voluntarily. College students are smart enough to figure that out, and make choices.
Point 15 has good intentions, but the course of action is severely flawed. Instead of legislating our way out of our problem, we should make our currency more valuable by not printing so much of it. We could also inspire investor confidence by honoring our debts. Just a thought!
So there it is, if you want; we can debate it in the comments. All yours y'all!
Learn why Abraham Lincoln was no hero. Each state has the right to secede when the federal government oversteps the boundaries of its power.
AG: I did not.
Mike: And it’s not just a regular calculator. You’ve got to have one that does all that fancy-schmancy sine and cosine and all that other calculus geometric trigonometry stuff. So if you don’t bring a calculator, they won’t even let you take a test. Yeah, you have to have the pocket calculator. Well, what does the pocket calculator do? It robs you of having to teach how to write the damn formulas, that’s what it does. Mathematics is all about formulation. If you don’t know the formulas, how can you possibly work the problems out? And so is it any surprise?
I guarantee you, though, U.S. children are better at using smartphones than any other kids on earth. We have got the smartphone part of it licked. They ought to have a smartphone Olympics. America would sweep. We’d not lose in any category. Wasting time by Facebooking on a smartphone, the 12-and-under category? Gold, silver, and bronze won by kids from Kansas. You go anywhere today, my kids included, I get on them all the time: Put the damn phone down. Talk to me. Do not send me a text message.
Our technology has become our god and our educator now. Here’s the problem: It doesn’t educate. Have you seen the new iPhone commercials, AG, when you were watching football yesterday? Where you don’t even have to type on the damn thing anymore. All you do is pick it up like it’s Captain Kirk’s communication device, and you go “Kirk to Enterprise, Kirk to Enterprise. Send note to Mrs. Church. Mrs. Church, the lunch is on for 1:00 o’clock. I’ll see you there. Kirk out.” Have you seen the new iPhones?
AG: That new Siri app is supposed to be pretty cool.
Mike: Yeah. Well, you don’t even have to type into it anymore. And that reminds me. While I was watching that iPhone commercial yesterday for the new app that you don’t have to do anything, you just talk into it, and it does everything for you, what were these people that were meandering about with their iPhones doing, AG? Did you catch it? Were any of them doing anything that could remotely be called “work”?
AG: I mean, did you notice that any of the things they asked were of really zero importance?
Mike: Yeah. “Remind me to call my fingernail stylist later on this afternoon,” said the woman who was merrily out jogging with a set of ear buds in. Did you catch that one?
AG: “I’ve locked myself out of the house.”
Mike: Yeah, I’m a dumbass, and I locked myself out of the house. Well, don’t worry about it. The iPhone can save you. I mean, ladies and gentlemen, seriously. I always tell the audience — and I have a lot of fun with this, but there’s a point to be made here — always encourage the audience to watch the television commercials on America’s signature product. The only thing that we still make is football. It’s the only product we have. Watch the commercials on the NFL and see if you can identify for me one solitary product that’s made. Did you notice — let me ask you a question, AG. Now, you’re not a suburbanite. You’re not a rural guy. You’ve lived in the city most of your life. You still live in the city. But you are familiar with pickup trucks; right?
AG: I am.
Mike: All right. Why would one purchase a pickup truck, would you think? Let’s do a 1970 purchase of a pickup truck. Why would you buy a truck?
AG: I would say to do construction or home improvement, that sort of thing.
Mike: Right, to haul things around and to carry your tools and your chains and your saws. You go to and from work. Not anymore. No, the reason you buy a Toyota Tundra is so you can push a dune buggy over the top of a sand dune.
AG: Or that a plane can land in the bed of your truck?
Mike: Or a plane full of tourists can land in the bed of your truck. And then the iPhone, I locked — see if you can find the audio from that. “I locked myself out of the house.” “Remind me to call such-and-such later on.” “Oh, I need to pick up a gallon of milk.”
I mean, ladies and gentlemen, we talked about this two weeks ago on this program. And I said, you know what, the United States, people in this country don’t — we’re not going to beat the Chinese, and we’re not going to make a rebound anytime soon because we’re a bunch of lazy people. We have become lazy and complacent and don’t really care much for producing anything anymore. That’s hard work. We’re certainly not going to give our weekends up. How many people were told sometime on Friday, have a great weekend? What did Gorab tell us when our meeting was concluded Friday morning? AG, what does he always tell us?
AG: Baseball season doesn’t start till April when the Yankees are back?
Mike: Yeah, and then after that, “Have a great weekend.” I mean, it is an entitlement and a right now to have those two days off at the end of the week. You know, every time I mention this I get a piece of hate mail, and I can’t wait to get today’s hate mail. “Well, if you want to work on weekends so desperately, why don’t you come in on Saturday?” I’ll tell you why, because they don’t ask me to come in on Saturday.

While there is no economic reason to oppose a flat tax in general there is ample reason to oppose Perry’s because if enacted it would lead to years of speculation on its effects and will derail legitimate efforts to fix or amend our corrupt, broken system but the biggest reason to find fault with The Old Deal is that it does nothing to set the Constitution on a comeback path. The Federal Leviathan gets a trim for a few years, stays at that level, then re-starts its inexorable course to financial and moral ruin. The problem that Perry fails to even acknowledge is not in Obama or Bush’s zeal for regulation, oversight and militarism it is that these things are dealt with as opposed to eliminated where possible.
Perry’s plan is however exactly what status quo right wing media has been lusting for and paves the way for his ascendency back to the top of the Republican heap with the gleeful support of DeceptiCONS from A-Z. This is a tragic development for conservatives who still have a chance to force a drastic course correction as opposed to slowing our federal bus from 85 to 83 as it careens toward the insolvency cliff. That course correction is contained in the blueprint laid out in Ron Paul’s “Restore America plan”, even if that blueprint is adopted by another candidate.
Quickly closing in on one-million hits, I want to thank all the friends and readers who have helped make this venture a success.

Mitt Romney, the inspiration for Obamacare (before Obamacare there was Romneycare, who Obama and the Democrats modeled Obamacare after), has launched his new Romney 2012 campaign logo, which will be featured on signs and bumper stickers. Mitt for Brains Romney found inspiration for the design by someone who found inspiration in his governing abilities, OBAMA.
Here's a video of Obama praising Romney for Romneycare.
With President Barack Obama attacking “fat cat bankers on Wall Street,” left-wing non-governmental organizations (NGOs) see a great opportunity to pass a global tax on financial transactions that could generate at least $700 billion a year from the U.S. and other “rich” countries. They are expecting Obama’s support.
The banks are a key target because of the “anger” that already exists against them for their roles in the global financial crisis, says a detailed 13-page memorandum from Max Lawson of the foreign aid group Oxfam.
Calling the global Financial Transactions Tax (FTT) “an idea whose time has come,” Lawson says in his memorandum that “politically the time is now” to pass such a tax. “It will take some great campaigning but I think we can do this,” he says in a message introducing the memo.
Lawson explains, “The global anger against the bankers; the huge pressure on rich country budgets; the need for money in 2010 to rescue the MDGs [Millennium Development Goals] and from failure; to protect poor countries from the economic crisis; and the need to come up with money for climate change to unlock a global deal. All combine to make a very strong political backdrop.”
The MDGs were established by the United Nations to make sure that the U.S. and other Western nations devote 0.7 percent of Gross National Product to official development assistance or foreign aid. As a Senator, Obama had introduced a bill, the Global Poverty Act, to mandate U.S. compliance with the MDGs at an estimated cost of $845 billion.
Lawson, head of development and finance for Oxfam in Britain, has distributed his 13-page memorandum to members of NGOs in the U.S. and other countries. “There is potentially plenty of money here for all of our issues,” he tells them.
The global tax is being called “the Robin Hood tax,” in order to convince people that it is somehow designed to take money away from rich people in order to help the poor. Another variation on this theme is the claim that the tax is aimed at Wall Street to help Main Street.
In reality, such a tax would affect IRAs, Mutual Funds and pensions by taxing the exchange of financial transactions. It would hand over great sums of money to politicians in the name of bashing the big banks but ordinary Americans and their life savings would be hurt.
As outlined by Lawson, however, the idea is to create the appearance of public support for the plan, ultimately enabling G8 leaders meeting in Canada in June to agree to the global tax and then get acceptance from the G20 leaders meeting afterward.
At the same time, the U.S. Congress is moving ahead with the “Let Wall Street Pay for the Restoration of Main Street Act of 2009″ (HR 4191), a financial transactions tax introduced by Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.), a leading member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
Lawson’s document cites support for the tax from Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who endorsed the DeFazio measure during a December 7 news conference and, according to a CNS News report, announced that the bill would have to be made “global” to keep U.S. investors from taking their business overseas and out of taxable reach.
Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) is introducing a similar bill, which has the backing of the AFL-CIO, in the Senate.
An “Open Letter from Economists in Support of Financial Transaction Taxes” has been released and signed by 200 liberal and left-wing economists.
Lawson also cites support for the tax from billionaires George Soros and Warren Buffet and such media organizations and figures as Le Monde, The Mail, The Guardian and Paul Krugman of the New York Times.
President Obama “supported [the idea] during his campaign,” Lawson says, but the U.S. Treasury Department under Timothy Geithner has been resisting it.
However, Politico reported on December 3 that Pelosi is now pressuring Geithner to accept the global tax proposal. “Geithner was widely seen as opposing such a levy when it was proposed by Gordon Brown, the British prime minister, at a meeting of G-20 finance ministers last month in Scotland,” the publication reported. But after a telephone conversation, “Pelosi told colleagues that the secretary indicated he was more open to some such fee than had been reported,” it added.
Some elements of the Lawson plan that are designed to secure passage of the legislation seem modeled on the 1999 “Battle in Seattle,” when 5,000 activists marched against the idea of global free markets, producing confrontations with police trying to keep order on the occasion of a meeting of the World Trade Organization. Lawson suggests “two or three global events” and “days of action” where “activists climb up banks” in order to pressure officials to adopt the global tax.
Joseph E. Stiglitz, a cabinet member in the Clinton Administration, claimed in his book, Globalization and Its Discontents, that the “protests at meetings of global financial leaders in Seattle, Prague, Washington, and Genoa…” had put pressure on the international community for more global action to solve the world’s problems.
Stiglitz is one of several high-profile figures listed in the Lawson memo as supporting a global financial transactions tax.
In Copenhagen, where governments are now meeting on the so-called “climate change” issue, some of the same leftists have been on display, marching in the streets under the banner of “Climate Justice Action” to demand that the U.S. and other Western nations pay “reparations” and an “ecological debt” to the less developed nations. U.N. reports have put this figure at $24 – $45 trillion.
On the eve of the Copenhagen summit, French President Nicolas Sarkozy joined with Prime Minister Gordon Brown in issuing a statement calling for a global financial transactions tax and other “innovative financing mechanisms” to assist countries fighting climate change.
Other elements of the Lawson plan seem modeled on “anti-poverty” campaigns such as Live Aid and Comic Relief. Live Aid was a rock music concert held on July 13, 1985, in order to raise funds to fight global poverty, while Comic Relief was designed to use comedy and laughter to alert the public to poverty.
In terms of using celebrities and making a big splash in the media, Lawson cites the case of Richard Curtis, a film director and the “creative energy” behind the Make Poverty History campaign, which urges people to wear a white band around their wrists as a “common symbol of the global fight to end poverty.”
Lawson says Curtis “is very interested in a short campaign” to press for a Financial Transaction Tax and “is working with colleagues in the advertising industry to work up ideas around a set of creative ideas that could be used by campaigns around the world, based on a Robin Hood Tax. His hope is to produce a set of materials that would be useful to all, and give the issue a huge global profile. He is also likely to use his media contacts around the world to ensure high profile for the fight for the tax.”
The global targets are the G8 and G20 groups of nations because the G20 summit in Pittsburgh in September decided that the G20 would replace the G8 as the leading international body for economic matters. As numerous media organizations have observed, the move signaled a major shift in global politics that has seen the authority and power of the U.S. in global affairs undermined. President Obama went so far at the G20 meeting to agree to a proposal for an International Monetary Fund study of how a global tax could be implemented.
Oxfam, which is spearheading the campaign to get a global tax implemented, is one member of an international coalition of organizations working “to fight poverty and injustice.” Its American affiliate receives funding from such entities as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation.
So-called progressives in the U.S. are now openly pressuring the Obama Administration to go along with the proposal. “We need to make this bill [the DeFazio/Harkin approach] a reality in the United States–and then take it worldwide,” The Progressive magazine proclaims.
Support can also be expected from the New Rules for Global Finance coalition, which runs the gamut from typical liberal-left groups to religious-oriented organizations.
The main problem with the Lawson scenario is that the truth about massive corruption in the foreign aid business is a matter of public record.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee published a report in 1995 which revealed that the cost of foreign aid provided by the U.S. to the rest of the world since the end of World War II had already reached nearly $2 trillion, with little to show for it in terms of alleviating poverty.
The AP reports:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Iran should not misread the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq as affecting the U.S. commitment to the fledgling democracy, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday.
President Barack Obama's announcement Friday that all American troops would return from Iraq by the end of the year will close a chapter on U.S.-Iraq relations that began in 2003 with the U.S.-led invasion to overthrow Saddam Hussein.
Washington has long worried that meddling by Iran, a Shiite Muslim theocracy, could inflame tensions between Iraq's Shiite-led government and its minority Sunnis, setting off a chain reaction of violence and disputes across the Mideast.
Clinton said in a series of news show interviews that the U.S. would continue its training mission with Iraq and that it would resemble operations in Colombia and elsewhere. While the U.S. will not have combat troops in Iraq, she said the American presence would remain strong because of its bases in the region.
"Iran would be badly miscalculating if they did not look at the entire region and all of our presence in many countries in the region, both in bases, in training, with NATO allies, like Turkey," she told CNN's "State of the Union."

Here's the newsletter:
Where's Billy? He won't be in the district listening to you. He's sending his staff members--the same staff members that decided they didn't want to listen to John Dollarhite and the other American patriots that came out to support him and his family as they fight the USDA. If you remember, these same staff members made sure the Dollarhite supporters were escorted off the property where Long's Springfield office is located.
So will their listening skills they displayed in the video be on display for those constituents critical of Long? I'd bet on it.

Perhaps you can see why raising money is so hard for Sarah.
The Washington Post reports of Steelman's third quarter fundraising, which resembles the first two quarters of the year (pathetic), as anything but top-tier.
In the third fundraising quarter, neither of the two declared Senate candidates — former state treasurer Sarah Steelman nor Rep. Todd Akin — raised more than $300,000 from donors. In fact, Steelman raised less than $100,000. That’s an unheard-of number for anyone who could be considered a top-flight candidate, and Steelman had to self-fund $400,000 to remain financially viable.
Perhaps it's time for Steelman to realize her dream of becoming a US Senator simply isn't viable.
The Post went out of their way to include Congressman Long in an article that was primarily outing Peter Kinder as an embarrassment after getting his picture taken with a stripper he has been pursuing. Funny thing is Congressman Long also has his tales of stripper improprieties.
And, the potential rising stars the party was grooming have fallen on hard times in recent years.
They include state Sens. Jack Goodman and Gary Nodler, who both lost to now-Rep. Billy Long in a 2010 primary.
Here's some perfect examples of the embarrassment in Congress that is Billy Long:
Here is a great video comparing the AP to the IB:
They just keep promising better education, which first you should ask why do they need the United Nations to provide better education since the IB is sponsored by the UN through UNESCO. Why haven't they been providing better education up until now?
Since Central High School in Springfield became an IB school, why is it their test scores and graduation rates are down?
These are questions Dr. Pace and Fugate don't want to answer. Someone in the community is doing their best to ensure the silence of these two school official so they don't have to be accountable to parents.
A Doubt IB program has sprouted up in Ozark. Over the past few days, yard signs that have tried to alert the community to the anti-American agenda and the hefty price of the IB have been disappearing out of yards in Ozark. What are people in Ozark so afraid of you will find out about IB that they must go to this extreme and destroy the signs?
Here's some clues:

Oh, but it gets worse, because few American jobs are going to be developed manufacturing this toy. The car is made in Finland.
The Department of Energy funded the project because it is an hybrid car, and exotic Prius so to speak. The base price for this car is just over $96,000. You have to wonder when Obama's celebrity buddies like Leonard DiCaprio will get his tax credit for purchasing one.
News Channel Five reports:
You're probably used to seeing TSA's signature blue uniforms at the airport, but now agents are hitting the interstates to fight terrorism with Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR).
"Where is a terrorist more apt to be found? Not these days on an airplane more likely on the interstate," said Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons.
Tuesday Tennessee was first to deploy VIPR simultaneously at five weigh stations and two bus stations across the state.
Agents are recruiting truck drivers, like Rudy Gonzales, into the First Observer Highway Security Program to say something if they see something.
So as the TSA continues patting down grandma's breasts, they admit terrorist aren't likely to carry out their missions on airplanes anymore; therefore justifying their existence in our every day lives. Just wait until grandma gets patted down before she can enter your local mall.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Iowa caucus-goers shows that Cain is in front with 28% followed by former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at 21%. Congressman Ron Paul is a distant third at 10% followed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 9%, Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann at 8%, and Texas Governor Rick Perry at 7%. The sixth place finish for Perry is a sharp decline from early September when Perry was the frontrunner both nationally and in Iowa. (To see survey question wording, click here).
Former Senator Rick Santorum picks up 4% of the vote and former Governor Jon Huntsman is at 2%. Another 4% would prefer some other candidate and 8% are not sure.
Only one-third of the caucus-goers (32%) are certain of their vote and don’t expect to change their mind. Among these voters, 30% prefer Cain, 22% Romney, and 17% Paul.
The AP Reports:
Republican presidential contender Ron Paul is opening his wallet for $2 million of television ads that criticize rivals Mitt Romney, Rick Perry and Herman Cain for supporting federal spending while touting his own proposal for drastically shrinking Washington's bottom line.
Paul on Thursday unveiled a 60-second ad that cast the White House hopefuls as spend-happy politicians who are not true conservatives. A second ad, also set to run for two weeks in the early nominating states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada, promotes Paul's plan to cut $1 trillion from the budget, eliminate five Cabinet-level agencies and stop spending U.S. tax dollars abroad on wars or aid.

He voted for the largest single debt ceiling increase in American history and then bragged about some minor spending cuts that followed. His "fed up" campaign theme suggested he wouldn't go to Washington and mingle with the establishment who fail to care about the threat this $14 trillion debt places on our freedom and liberty, but that is exactly what Congressman Billy Long did. There is an entire list of other things that he has done as well to break our "fed up" trust in him.
Congressman Long also voted to fund fraudulent lawsuit against the USDA known as Pigford that is taking billions from taxpayers rather than putting his foot down in an effort to stop it. He proposed no spending cuts with HR1 while voting to continue funding for federal sponsorship of NASCAR teams and other frivolous spending failing to come up with $100 billion in spending cuts. Long proved he could be bought by lobbying money by proposing National Auctioneer Day instead of coming up with valuable spending cuts.
Billy helped grow the power of the federal government by voting for the Fourth Amendment killing Patriot Act twice all the while claiming he supports the Constitution, and then co-sponsored legislation that continues to grow government like the If You See Something Say Something Act of 2011 and HR617, which would sell off valuable HAM radio frequencies that were important in saving lives in Joplin before and after the horrible tornado in exchange for an emergency broadband frequency that has ties to the Internet kill switch.
Based on Long's disappointing fundraising quarter, you have to wonder if Southwest Missouri has quickly become "fed up" of Billy Long. The News-Leader writes:
Long raised about $47,000 from individuals and $23,000 from political action committees (PACs). That's a relatively weak showing, even for a freshman lawmaker.
Yeah, Billy Long isn't what Southwest Missouri bargained for when they agreed with Congressman Long they were fed up too.

As a former USCF licensed road cyclist that raced in multiple states, one would think the Legs workout would be easy for me. The truth is, it is my least favorite workout in the Supreme 90 Day Workout series.
The good news is I am getting results as muscles I rarely used are getting sculpted as I enter the final three weeks of the series. My weight loss goal hasn't been met yet, but I am wearing clothes I haven't worn in a while. Unfortunately, they are out of style.
It's been a while since I reported to the readers my progress. I am proud of what I have accomplished on this program and the program is for real. It's not some cheap knock off of P90X that doesn't work. It does work. It's effective and I sweat and hurt with each workout. I go through muscle failure. I build and sculpt. This system works.
Today is legs which begins tough with some ab exercises and then instantly goes into this ball exercise called the Triple Heater. You form a bridge with your feet on the ball, shoulders on the ground, and begin a series of movements that make all muscles involve burn. Judging from the comments on the Facebook Supreme 90 Day users page, nobody likes this series of movements. It is followed by a series of squats and lunges that just add to the pain. My legs never hurt this much when I was bicycle racing.
