America; The Lost Child!
Editorial submitted by; Bretton Woods. Nov. 2007 (Updated Sept. 2009)

"So you think that money is the root of all evil?" said Francisco d'Anconia. "Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Would it not seem more likely that the evil lies in the pursuit of money?

Money has no value;

The nationalists were diligent in fighting the gold standard because they wanted to sever their countries from the world market and to establish national autarky as far as possible. Interventionist governments and pressure groups are still fighting the gold standard because they consider it the most serious obstacle to their endeavors to manipulate prices and wage rates. But the most fanatical attacks against gold and gold backed currencies are made by those intent upon credit expansion. With them credit expansion is the panacea for all economic ills. It could lower or even entirely abolish interest rates, raise wages and prices for the benefit of all except the parasitic capitalists and the exploiting employers, free the state from the necessity of balancing its budget—in short, make all decent people prosperous and happy. Only the gold standard, that devilish contrivance of the wicked and stupid "orthodox" economists, prevents mankind from attaining everlasting prosperity.

The main objection raised against the gold standard is that it makes operative in the determination of prices a factor which no government can control—the vicissitudes of gold production. Thus an "external" or "automatic" force restrains a national government’s power to make its subjects as prosperous as it would like to make them. The international capitalists dictate and the nation’s sovereignty becomes a sham.

What the expansionists call the defects of the gold standard are indeed its very eminence and usefulness. It checks large-scale inflationary ventures on the part of governments. The gold standard did not fail. The governments were eager to destroy it, because they were committed to the fallacies that credit expansion is an appropriate means of lowering the rate of interest and of "improving" the balance of trade and in obtaining currency and market control.

The struggle against gold which is one of the main concerns of all contemporary governments must not be looked upon as an isolated phenomenon. It is but one item in the gigantic process of destruction which is the mark of our time. People fight the gold standard because they want to substitute national autarky for free trade, war for peace, totalitarian government omnipotence for liberty.

The Culprit is The Federal Reserve

Who is responsible for inflation? It's not you or I because if we privately increased the supply of money to finance profligate spending, we would be charged with counterfeiting and go to prison. The Federal Reserve Bank, our central bank, is the only entity legally permitted to increase the supply of money, to bailout crooked financial institutions and finance Congress' profligate spending. The Federal Reserve Bank while supposedly independent does not institute sound monetary problems and is in actuality the root of economical problems. Charging interest on all monies issued it is quite reluctant in abstaining from an out of control market credit system.

Central banks are villains in most countries, including ours. In 1946, Hungary's central bank gave it the world's highest inflation rate yet to date. Prices doubled every 16 hours creating an annual inflation rate of 13 quadrillion percent. Last October, Zimbabwe's central bank produced history's second highest rate of inflation. Prices doubled every 25 hours, giving it an annual inflation rate of 80 billion percent. By comparison, Germany's inflation rate, which brought about the social disruption responsible for Hitler's rise to power, was a mere 30,000 percent that saw prices doubling every four days. You say, "Williams, that couldn't happen here." Except during the Revolutionary War and the War of 1861, our inflation has never exceeded 20 percent, but keep in mind that any hyperinflation was once 20 percent.

Knowing the dangers posed by central banks, we might ask whether our country needs the Federal Reserve Bank. Whenever I'm told that we need this or that government program, I always ask what we did before. It turns out that we did without a central bank from 1836, when President Andrew Jackson closed the Second Bank of the United States, to 1913 when Federal Reserve Act was written. During that interval, we prospered and became one of the world's major economic powers.

The justifications for Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was to prevent bank failure and maintain price stability. Simple before and after analysis demonstrates that the Federal Reserve Bank has been a failure. In the century before the Federal Reserve Act, wholesale prices fell by 6 percent; in the century after they rose by 1,300 percent. Maximum bank failures in one year before 1913 were 496 and afterward, 4,400. During the 1930s, inept money supply management by the Federal Reserve Bank was partially responsible for both the depth and duration of the Great Depression.

It is not wise for us to permit a few people on the Federal Reserve Board to have life and death power over our economy. My recommendation for reducing some of that power is to repeal legal tender laws and eliminate all taxes on gold, silver and platinum transactions. That way there would be money substitutes and the government money monopoly would be reduced and hence the ability to tax -- some people would say steal from -- us through inflation.

______________________________________________________________________________


The story begins in 1944. After World War II, the United States was the only industrial power left standing. Germany, Japan, France, and other European economies were decimated; their factories destroyed, their people impoverished. Britain, long the world’s dominant economic power and the issuer of the world’s reserve currency, was in similar shape. The pound, backed by the rubble that once comprised the world’s mightiest industrial economy, had been made worthless by the costs of war and could no longer function as currency by which international accounts were settled. The world’s leading economists met at Bretton Woods, NH before the war’s end in 1944 to devise a new system of international payments and exchange rates; what emerged came to be known by the name of the conference’s location - the Bretton Woods System.

In this system, all countries would peg the value of their currencies to the US Dollar, while the dollar was pegged to gold at $35 per ounce. In this way, the exchange rates of foreign currencies were determined in relation to the dollar, while governments were able to exchange their currencies for gold, effectively making the US Dollar “as good as gold.” If another country got into trouble and saw the value of their currency decline sharply, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), was able to make adjustments to the exchange rate regime and/or issue loans to mitigate short-run balance-of-payment imbalances and stabilize foreign currencies. In this way, member countries would not have to induce a severe recession or depression in order to cut imports and national income to a level that was within their means to fund. The IMF was able to use this leverage to prevent the adoption of policies which would have caused a nation to default on its outstanding debt, and to reduce the temptation of poor countries to embark on policies of economic nationalism - restricting imports and capital outflows - much to the chagrin of populist demagogues in many third-world nations.

This system worked exceptionally well for thirty years; the post-war economic boom was one of the longest periods of increasing prosperity in world history. The United States benefited greatly from its position as the issuer of the world’s reserve currency. Since other governments had to hold dollars to participate in the system, the US was able to run persistent budget deficits and finance ever-increasing consumer spending and private investment without raising interest rates. While other nations had to either raise taxes or cut growth by raising interests rates in order to meet their obligations, the US was able to have it all - low unemployment, high domestic consumption and investment, low interest rates, low taxes, and high government spending. In effect, the rest of the world was doing a lot of the USA’s saving, but the US trade deficit encouraged exports from developing countries and spurred economic growth. However, it began to show signs of strain in the late 1950s. The system from whence the USA enjoyed unimaginable benefits was reliant upon very good behavior to maintain the dollar’s prestigious position. The American public ultimately rejected the hard decisions necessary to do so.

Beginning with tax cuts and increased domestic spending in the 1960s, the US trade deficit began to increase rapidly. The Vietnam War placed an even more enormous strain the federal budget and thus the Bretton Woods system, as the US borrowed heavily from abroad to finance prosperity at home while it was undergoing enormous outflows of human and economic capital in fighting the war. When Nixon assumed office in 1969, the situation continued to deteriorate. The central banks of France and Germany were piling up huge amounts of US Treasuries, and economists began to question how long they would be willing to pay our bills. The Fed induced a recession in 1969, but inflation stayed elevated due to pressures on the dollar. 1969 also proved to be the peak of US oil production, and America was soon forced to begin importing oil more and more oil from overseas, greatly excacerbating the balance-of-payments problem. Nixon, always the cynic, was advised that the Bretton Woods was facing collapse, but decided that keeping unemployment low for short-term political gain was more important than the long-run health of the economy. “We’ll take inflation if we have to” he said, “but we can’t have unemployment. Nobody ever lost an election because of inflation.”

And yet, the only trade-off was in the short run. By 1970, the crisis had become acute. US gold coverage - the amount of gold held in reserve to back the outstanding fiat (paper) currency - declined from 55% to 22% as more and more dollars were being printed to finance the fiscal and balance-of-payment deficits. Foreign central banks began losing faith in the ability of the Treasury to redeem dollars for gold, and began demanding their gold at $35 per ounce, a huge discount to the value of gold on open markets. Faced with a run on gold reserves, spiraling inflation, and an impending election, Nixon unilaterally closed the “gold window” - suspended the exchange of dollars for gold - implemented trade protections, wage freezes, and price controls. The Bretton Woods system collapsed.

A successive series of attempted devaluations of the dollar were unsuccessful in imposing discipline on the the US, and countries began abandoning their dollar pegs. By early 1973, the last Bretton Woods exchange markets were closed, and thus began the “Great Inflation” of the 1970s. Without the discipline of the gold-exchange system, other countries began attempting to print their way out of trouble as well, and inflation rates in countries around the world spiked. We in the US could no longer rely on other countries to do our savings for us, and the choice was either to tighten our belts, or find a new source of saving to bankroll our consumption. Enter Nixon’s visit to China.

Bretton Woods II

Far from being an altruistic visit to advance world peace, Nixon’s normalizing of relations with China had a very specific purpose - leverage the Chinese supply of cheap labor to enable the US to continue living beyond its means. However, it was Japan that played the most important role in the creation of Bretton Woods II. While Japan is often thought of as a capitalist society, the reality is much murkier. Socialism of the mild sort, as was the consensus in the UK during this time, generally meant government control over and central planning of the “commanding heights” of the economy - utilities and heavy industries - while leaving market forces to determine the production of higher value-added products. The problem with this idea is that the “commanding heights” don’t actually command anything; the true commanding heights of a market economy are not the heavy industries, but the financial markets.

The Japanese economy, while reliant upon market forces to do the heavy lifting, is controlled by high-level technocrats at the Ministry of Finance. In contrast to the import substitution models popular at the time, the MoF set about developing a policy of strategic development through export-oriented industrialization. They wanted cheap capital for their exporters, which was funded by forced savings through MoF purchases of US public debt. Rather than invest their export earnings to build up domestic industries, the Japanese plowed them back into purchases of Treasuries, thereby keeping the value of their currency suppressed and their exports artificially cheap.

Thus, a new Bretton Woods began to emerge. During the 1980s, the US again slashed taxes and ramped up spending, yet this time they were able to do so without causing inflation or sky-high interest rates because the Japanese MoF bought up our debt at huge discounts. On the back of the US fiscal and balance of payments deficits, the export-oriented Japanese economy boomed. But when the US economy slowed, imports did too. The “Japanese miracle” was revealed to be a massive bubble, and rather than let the export-oriented economy readjust to a more domestically-oriented one, the MoF propped up the existing economic structures.

With the election of Bill Clinton and the return of fiscal restraint, the dollar surged, but as the US ran fiscal surpluses, the supply Treasuries available for purchase by the MoF shrank. The MoF could no longer boost exports by financing the non-existent US budget deficit, the Yen appreciated, and rather than allowing domestic demand to increase, Japan entered a decade of stagnation. Yet, even though the US government was now living within its means, the American public was not. America still posted trade deficits year after year, and while Japan still held vast numbers of US assets, China was on the rise. China’s domestic economy posted solid gains throughout the 1980s and 1990s, yet their currency was still at artificially strong levels, making exports uneconomical. But following the Japanese model, the Chinese government itself began a weak-currency policy.

The Collapse of the .com Bubble and the Bush Era

The budget surpluses of the 1990s freed up an enormous amount of capital for private investment in the US, much of which went to hyped-up .com firms with no assets, no revenues, no earnings - but extraordinary share prices. Wall Street argued, as in asset bubbles past, that the old rules no longer applied. Consumers took out loans and bought huge amounts of these absurdly-inflated stocks on margin. They increasingly financed current consumption against the value of speculative stock picks. However, reality eventually reasserted itself, and when the bubble burst (expedited by 9/11), many consumers’ paper wealth evaporated, and they were stuck with the enormous debt they had incurred during the boom.

But rather than ensure an orderly deflation and market correction, the Fed slashed (real) interest rates to negative territory, while Bush and the Republican Congress pushed through massive tax cuts - even with the expected return to deficits during the downturn. While .com stocks plunged, the Fed and the new administration worked to ensure that the consumption-fueled economy that grew up around effortless wealth was maintained. But investors were soured by the collapse of the stock market; real estate was the new must-own asset. Consumers, encouraged by their elected leaders, once again borrowed heavily to finance speculative asset purchases. Wall Street, now freed from the constraints of much of the regulation put in place during the 1930s, created numerous securities and instruments that enabled banks to expand lending to un-creditworthy buyers.

Bush and the neo-cons launched headlong into a war in Iraq and, like LBJ and Nixon, pursued a guns-and-butter policy of further tax cuts, massive defense expenditures, and huge increases in entitlement spending. The budget deficit ballooned, but like Japan, China stepped in to purchase the new debt at huge premiums. Interest rates in the US stayed absurdly low. Despite massive government and consumer spending, and the trade deficits those necessitate, the US was spared inflation, unemployment, and the loss of its reserve currency status.

Yet, once again, economic reality reasserted itself. The real estate bubble collapsed, leaving many US households with negative net worth. The falling dollar, demand from developing energy markets, massive domestic consumption, and instability in the Middle East caused energy prices to spike, further squeezing consumers. Unable to pay the bills on their massive debt, American households began defaulting on their mortgages and credit cards. The financial system, an elaborate house of cards dependent upon increasing levels of consumer indebtedness, began imploding. And, like Japan in the 1990s, rather than ensure an orderly transition to more rational economic structures, the US government continues to try to prop up the debt-fueled “consumer economy,” oblivious to the fact that selling debt-backed securities in exchange for the fruits of the world’s labor is totally unsustainable and unrealistic.

And once again, we still we have no policies to move the United States towards a production-oriented economy. Rather than embark on the spending necessary to make this transition, they instead continue to exchange noncollectable consumer debt on the balance sheets of banks for US Treasuries in a futile attempt to bring back the good ole days of unsustainable consumer spending. Just as how they’re unable to grasp that the sky-high gasoline prices were the result of inadequate supply and unabated demand, policymakers seem unable to grasp the reality that this is not some random crisis resulting from illiquidity in the financial markets, but rather the overall collapse of the Bretton Woods II system. Try as they might, they will be unable to put the Humpty-Dumpty bubble economy back together again.

The difference this time is that there are no more China’s and Japan’s to buy our debt and enable us to live beyond our means. All of the bailouts in the world won’t do a bit of good without a package to make the transition to a production-oriented economy. Consumers are unwilling to take on any more debt, and banks have learned the hard way that they can’t extend shady loans to shady borrowers without consequence. The sooner Congress and the Fed realize this, the sooner they’ll stop throwing good money after bad, and the sooner we can start to recover. Simply put, the era of free lunches has come to an end.

Americans remain in denial of their Murderous Iraqi - Afghanistan Campaigns

As with every war in the history of capitalism, its proponents cloak their real aims with high-minded and noble-sounding phrases. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq - just like the slaughter of World War I, the Vietnam War and countless other conflicts - were sold as battles for freedom, liberty, democracy, good vs. evil and so on. The Bush administration was hardly original in its rhetoric. It was though, successful, as the world is easily misled by it's controlled media and fear of the unknown.

American Imperialists waging war for oil and wealth

The war in Afghanistan could not be more disastrous, both for the long-suffering people of that country, but also for the chief aggressor: the United States. And 2007 was the bloodiest year of the war - so far.

The professed concern for the lives of the occupied peoples is patently false. It is estimated that these occupations have caused over one million casualties, as well as establishing a permanent legacy of death and deformity by the use of weaponry enhanced with depleted uranium.

The American elite care little about human suffering. They are committed to the free market, neo-liberal economy policies that have seen a massive global increase in extreme poverty. They were quick to apply this economic dogma to their newly conquered Middle Eastern possessions. Companies like Halliburton made mega-profits for failing to provide services and infrastructure.

Today, the war in Iraq is totally discredited. The US overstretched itself trying to link Saddam and bin Laden, and even more so, in inventing stories about WMDs. The lies were necessary because the genuine reasons for the war were so perverse and cynical. Chiefly, the war was about the US ruling class trying to extend its power in the world. In this case they were seeking to rewrite the geo-political map in the oil-rich, and strategically important, Middle East.

Afghanistan and Iraq are essentially different theatres of the same American war. The US occupies both countries for the same reasons. Indeed the entire "war on terror" flows from the logic of imperialism.

Imperialist military conflict is the inevitable extension of the economic competition upon which capitalism is based. Major companies rely on the states in which they are based to use their muscle to secure access to raw materials like oil, and to arrange favourable terms of trade with other nations.

Imperialism is primarily about competition between the most powerful states in the world. And military strength is the ultimate arbiter of power between these states. This becomes clear when one considers how the victors of World War II were able to divide up the globe as they pleased at the conclusion of the war. The US and its ally Britain on the one hand, and the USSR on the other hand, simply carved up key sections of the world into "spheres of influence."

Since the collapse of the USSR, the United States has been the world's sole superpower. But as its economic position vis-à-vis other major capitalist nations has declined, the US has become increasingly reliant on its unsurpassed military might to shore up its dominance.

Whereas the US economy accounted for a majority of world production in the immediate post-World War II years, its share of global GDP has been trending downward for decades. And the figure has slipped from 30 per cent to 25 per cent in the last five years.

The Afghan and Iraq wars were conceived by the US ruling class primarily as a reaction to the prospect of US global hegemony being challenged, either by an integrated Europe, a resurgent Russia, or most pressingly, by ascendant China. When Bush declared after 9/11 that "you are either with us or with the terrorists," he was effectively telling the rulers of all other nations that they must accept the right of the US to govern the world. Very few of these rulers felt able to challenge this statement at the time.

But instead of ushering in a renaissance of US hegemony, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have had actually seen a diminishing of US power. The reason is that the people of these countries have resisted in a most determined fashion.

It has been possible to say with complete certainty for at least the last three years that the chance of the US salvaging some sort of lasting victory in Iraq is zero. As for Afghanistan, the occupation is now in its eighth year, with the insurgency continuing to gain strength. The US-puppet government has no legitimacy in the country, and no control over most of it.

As the left-wing commentator Tariq Ali put it recently: "To sum up the situation in Afghanistan, it's a total mess. The US can never win that war, and the main reason they can never win is that Afghans don't like being occupied. Afghans kicked out the British in the 19th century, the Russians in the 20th century, and now they're fighting again against the US and its NATO allies." Indeed, it is the right of the Afghan people, and the people of Iraq, to resist the subjugation of their country.

Rather than admit defeat, the Bush administration continued to obliterate thousands of US lives, and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi and Afghan lives. And the Democrats who control US Congress, and now the presidency as well with the election of Obama, have done literally nothing to obstruct this process.

In fact, many key Democrats like Barack Obama have participated in preparing the ground politically for a possible future attack on Iran. Frighteningly, there are precedents from the last 40 years of the US lashing out when faced with inevitable defeat in a war. Even though the US had clearly lost in Vietnam by 1968, they not only persisted until 1975, but actually extended the conflict into Cambodia killing millions of mostly civilians.

We can therefore say with complete justification that the US military machine is the greatest threat to the peoples of the Middle East and central Asia. And the words of Martin Luther King during the Vietnam era, that the US government is "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world", have never been more true than today.

For this reason, socialists oppose the entire phony "war on terror." And we oppose any Australian support for America's war.

Australia's involvement in the disaster in Afghanistan is no mere token undertaking. The roughly 1000 troops deployed there play an active operational role. That is, they carry out killings, and themselves come under fire. Three troops have been killed in combat in recent months.

Furthermore, the Australian Defense Force has had to abandon its previous attempts at a cover-up, and publicly release a report into the suicide last February of a soldier who had served in Afghanistan. The Melbourne Age noted on January 10 that the young man "was struggling to overcome post-traumatic stress disorder incurred after shooting a man dead in Afghanistan and telling others of how he had seen a child raped by a fellow soldier."

The troops stationed in Afghanistan have not and will not be able to achieve anything, other than to do some of the dirty work of the US ruling class. They are assisting in one part of a global war that has involved routine torture at the Abu Ghraib prison, the gulag of Guantanamo Bay, 25,000 US troop suicides, a million plus dead Iraqis, and the diversion of trillions of dollars into military spending that ought to have been spent on alleviating poverty and fixing the climate crisis.

US recent and ongoing recession may just be a reclaiming of American's wealth by the power elite. Citizens have lost one or more trillion dollars and with the 4 trillion dollar bailout they will have to repay...they have lost their future, as well.

How the US created Osama bin Laden

This portion of the main articles was contributed by; Ben Hillier

On July 3 1979, US President Jimmy Carter, under advice from National Security Adviser Zbignew Brzezinski, signed the first directive allowing secret aid to be given to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime that had recently come to power in Afghanistan. It marked the beginning of a now infamous convergence of interests, which saw the CIA, the Saudi Arabian regime and the Pakistani Interservices Intelligence Directorate (ISI) equip and train the Islamist mujahideen resistance to the Soviet Union.

For the US, this was an immense opportunity. In the preceding 5 years, they had been booted out of both Vietnam and Iran. It had been "the most humiliating half decade in American history".  Now they sought to hand the Soviet Union their own Vietnam by luring them into an intractable guerilla war in Central Asia.

Over more than a decade up to 35,000 fighters from the Muslim world were recruited, US$10 billion worth of aid channeled (including, by 1987, 65,000 tons of arms), and a "ceaseless stream" of CIA and Pentagon officials helped to plan mujahideen operations. According to Stephen Coll, writing in The Washington Post, "at any one time during the Afghan fighting season, as many as 11 ISI teams trained and supplied by the CIA accompanied mujahideen across the border to supervise attacks... CIA operations officers helped Pakistani trainers establish schools for the mujahideen in secure communications, guerrilla warfare, urban sabotage and heavy weapons."

But not only this. They gave support to the most retrograde elements like Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. His followers, according to journalist Tim Weiner, "first gained attention by throwing acid in the faces of women who refused to wear the veil". The reasoning of the CIA was simple: The more fanatical the fighters were, the more brutal they were, the better they would fight so the more support they should get. Ronald Reagan - the same man who denounced the African National Congress and the Palestine Liberation Organization for not renouncing violence - described the mujahadeen as "freedom fighters."

Reagan, now president, met in Washington with rebel leaders like Abdul Haq, who openly admitted his responsibility for terrorist attacks, such as a 1984 bomb blast at Kabul's airport that killed at least 28 people.

Meanwhile, with CIA assistance, the mujahideen greatly expanded opium production in areas under their control - turning Afghanistan into what one US official later described as the new Colombia of the drug world.

One of the first non-Afghan volunteers to join the ranks of the mujahideen was Osama bin Laden, hailing from a wealthy construction family in Saudi Arabia. Bin Laden recruited 4,000 volunteers from his own country and developed close relations with the most radical mujahideen leaders. He also worked closely with the CIA, raising money from private Saudi citizens. By 1984, he was running the Maktab al-Khidamar, an organization set up by the ISI to funnel "money, arms, and fighters from the outside world in the Afghan war."

According to journalist John Cooley, "the CIA gave Osama free rein in Afghanistan, as did Pakistan's intelligence generals. They looked with a benign eye on the build up of Sunni sectarian power in South Asia to counter the influence of Iranian Shi'ism of the Khomeiny variety".

By 1989 the Russians were exhausted. They indeed got their "Vietnam". News of the Soviet defeat saw champagne corks popping all over Washington. The cold war was about to become history - the US had triumphed.  But when the USSR finally withdrew, the administration of George Bush Sr. turned its back on Afghanistan -leaving it, in the words of The Economist, "awash with weapons, warlords and extreme religious zealotry."

As the state funding from the Saudis and the US dried up, private financiers - like bin Laden himself - further stepped up their contributions to "the cause". The Soviets may have gone, but there were new targets, and they weren't limited to within Afghanistan's borders...

Looking back on his role in the conflict Zbignew Brzezinski asked (in 1998), "What is most important to the history of the world... some stirred up Muslims or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the Cold War?"

In light of the new "war on terror" Brzezinski's question is tragic. The hypocrisy is there for all to see: the "terrorists" of today were trained, funded and backed by modern imperialism yesterday. In Bush's facade of lies and deceit he used the made up legacy of  Bin Laden as the excuse the US needed to go into Afghanistan again, and to follow it up with the obliteration of Iraq. That "war" shows that while Bin Laden may have been a useful protégé, the US is still the master when it comes to terror.

Oil and Empire: The new scramble for Africa

Contributed by; Ben Hillier

 

"The vilest scramble for loot that ever disfigured the history of human conscience" - Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness.

 By the time the European powers had completed the great scramble for Africa early in the twentieth century, the wounds they inflicted had left the continent crippled. In the space of 20-30 years the territory had been almost completely carved up and subjugated. Its people were put to work, under the most brutal conditions, extracting the natural resources that were feeding the rapid industrialization of Europe. The entire Western world supported apartheid and the slavery of the African continent.

Today there's a new scramble on. On the one hand it's driven by geo-political concerns: After the break-up of the USSR in 1991, the political "certainties" that characterized the Cold War were brought into question and a space was opened up for the forming of new strategic political alliances.

On the other hand, it's just one more giant looting fest, with oil at its centre. The world's two biggest oil importers - the US and China - are rushing to seal up the continent and secure every last drop available. Fully one-third of new oil discoveries since the year 2000 have been in Africa, with oil investment now representing over 50 per cent of all foreign direct investment (FDI) in the continent.

China's oil imports from Africa account today for 30 per cent of total imports. Its oil companies are constructing pipelines and refineries, and securing exploration rights particularly in Angola, the Congo and Sudan.

The Wall Street Journal recently noted that "China has made Africa a front line in its pursuit of more global influence, tripling trade with the continent to some $37 billion over the last five years and locking up energy assets, closing trade deals and educating Africa's future elites at Chinese universities and military schools."

All of this makes the US uneasy, firstly because an aim of their global strategy since the break-up of the Soviet Union has been to prevent the rise of any country that might challenge their global domination. Secondly because US oil companies have invested more than $50 billion in the region since 1995 and US agencies are expecting oil imports from Africa to rise from 15 per cent today to 25 per cent of total imports by 2015.

The Council on Foreign Relations, a right-wing US think tank, depicts China as the leading threat to US interests in Africa: "China has altered the strategic context in Africa. All across Africa today, China is acquiring control of natural resource assets, outbidding Western contractors on major infrastructure projects, and providing soft loans and other incentives to bolster its competitive advantage."

You might think that all of this economic competition must be a godsend to the destitute masses of the African continent. After all, capitalist development is what the continent desperately needs, right? Unfortunately, the opposite is the case.

Nigeria, the continent's largest producer, struck oil nearly 50 years ago. Between 1960 and 1973 output increased 120-fold, with government oil-revenues increasing nearly 140-fold in the decade from 1970. Yet as US academic Michael Watts points out, "Between 1970 and 2000 in Nigeria, the number of people subsisting on less than one dollar a day grew from 36 per cent to more than 70 per cent, from 19 million to a staggering 90 million." The IMF could curiously write of this that oil "did not seem to add to the standard of living." Little wonder, when 85 per cent of the revenues accrue to 1 per cent of the population.

Added to this is the environmental devastation. Constant leaks and spills in the Niger Delta have seen the beaches run black. The water has a constant oily film over the top, fish stocks are depleted and acid rain diminishes local crop yields. A group of scientific researchers who visited three of the nine Niger Delta States in the late 1990s noted "most places we went, the extent of damage [was] sincerely beyond human description." One oil spill alone in 1998 released over 800,000 barrels of oil into the local region.

In most villages there are no schools, medical clinics, or social services, no clean drinking water and almost no paying jobs. People struggle to eke out a living, while all around them oil wells owned by foreign companies pump billions of dollars' worth of oil a year from under their feet and from their own land.

A Human Rights Watch report on another major oil producer, Sudan, noted: "Oil development in southern Sudan should have been a cause of rejoicing for Sudan's people. Instead, it has brought them nothing but woe." It points out evidence of the complicity of oil companies in human rights abuses: "Oil companies operating in Sudan were aware of...killing, bombing, and looting...all in the name of opening up the oilfields. These facts were repeatedly brought to their attention in public and private meetings, but they continued to operate and make profits from devastation."

Economic competition becoming military competition

Despite being the largest economy in the world, the US is struggling to compete with China on an economic level in Africa - China just has too much cash to throw around.

The US has therefore concerned itself with combating China in a way the world to which has become accustomed - through the expansion of US military operations in the region. Although the US only has one permanent military base on the continent, journalist John Bellamy Foster points out that "a newly established base in Uganda gives the United States the potential of dominating southern Sudan, where most of that country's oil is to be found."

In West Africa, the US military has now established operations in Senegal, Mali, Ghana, Gabon and Namibia as well as developing a coastal security system in the Gulf of Guinea (80 per cent of African oil discoveries are here).

So Africa has now become a pivotal zone in war to secure a "New American Century" - the war to ensure the US remains top dog for decades to come.

Is there an alternative?

When we turn on the TV, the picture of Africa is almost always the same: A World Vision ad shows a malnourished child and the news shows us refugees and conflict. They don't tell us why the child has arms like sticks, they don't tell us why all these people are dying of famine. They don't tell us the root source of violence in conflict areas. The news just gives us vague and racist commentary about "complex" "tribal" or "ethnic" divisions, without ever exploring how tensions arose or how we could actually make a difference by not stealing their resources. Instead all we hear is there is little chance of any solution. The picture of Africa is that of an eternally backward primitive society that desperately needs charity and aid from the civilized world.

Yet the reality of Africa is that the problems are primarily external - imperialism, oil and other multinational corporations - and the real solutions lie within.

All across the continent, there are combative workers' movements - in Egypt, South Africa, Algeria, Nigeria, and Zimbabwe. These movements have led the way - fighting for democratic rights, striking over privatization, annulment of elections and for fuel subsidies for the poor, greater concessions from the oil giants, pay increases for state sector workers and so on.

This year alone there have been general strikes in both Nigeria and Algeria, two of the biggest oil producers on the continent, as well as South Africa.

The working class is the key to social transformation across the continent, firstly because of the enormous power it wields - especially in the oil-producing states, where just thousands or tens of thousands of workers have the ability to completely shut down the economy in an instant.

But secondly, because the working class is the only force which has an interest in genuine development. Generally the ruling class in oil states is embedded deeply in the State machine and survives almost exclusively on oil revenues. As far as they're concerned, there's no need for a healthy and educated working class. So precious little is spent on welfare, education and public health, let alone sanitation, water and electricity.

This is not simply a mistake, or bad policy. For the African ruling classes (not to mention the oil companies) there is no economic need for much civilian infrastructure - all that is required are the huge outlays on pipelines, ports and drilling machinery too keep the profits flowing.

Unless the populations themselves put them under pressure, why would they really care about the state of the mass of people? They don't. There's no money in that.

So given the ruling class won't provide, the workers are forced to fight for their needs. The reality, then, is that there is a real possibility of the working class in these countries pushing forward - for example, to nationalize a country's resources to ensure that the population, not the oil companies and the ruling elite, are the beneficiaries of the proceeds. We have already seen these sorts of movements in Bolivia and Venezuela in the past five years.

The biggest threat to the achievement of genuine development and decent living standards in Africa will not be a lack of compassionate donors from the Western world, but the military operations of the imperial powers, who want to see Africa remain crippled so that its resources can continue to be pillaged.

It is precisely because of this that impending military interventions into Africa have to be opposed. We will be sold a script about "humanitarian" concerns, but it is important to recognize that the imperial powers only care about humanitarian concerns to the extent that it enables them to sell another war for oil and empire - just like Iraq.

In order to hasten the decline of the continent the US and her allies, working with WHO, World Health Organization, has for the last 30 to 40 years purposefully plagued the land with AIDS and other crippling and deadly viruses.

Americans are as deeply in denial to their wrongdoing as Nazis were. They imagine that America spent three trillion dollars ($120,000.00 per Iraqi man, woman and child (in a country with an average monthly wage of $5) to create grief for Iraqis, all without killing any non-combatants. What nonsense! Sgt. Frank Wuterich (accused of murdering 24 civilians) explained in a 60 Minutes interview that the US Military policy is to kill anyone who shows “hostie intent” That would include a child throwing rocks or old women screaming obscenities. That would include anyone who did not lie on the ground in submission — something the non-English speaking Iraqis are supposed to automatically understand. He said that he and his men threw grenades into houses, without doing any checks first to see if there were any combatants. Their belief is the only good Iraqis is a dead Iraqi, that Iraqi civilians are worthless scum, so it is perfectly acceptable to kill children on the off chance they might kill a resistance fighter in the process. The American soldiers have lower morality than the Nazis in this regard.

 The photos at the top of the page show the tip of the iceberg of the suffering of both Americans and Iraqis in the Iraq war. This is considered collateral damage in a $13.5 trillion oil heist of the #2 oil reserves on the planet, callously masquerading as a compassionate regime change. The occupation and slaughter carries on without an official reason now that Saddam was captured and hung. That the Iraqis resisted occupation was justification enough for Bush. It may sound strange, but to Bush, the following images are erotically stimulating.

Most Americans are in deep denial that their country would butcher children and civilians, routinely torture, or bomb homes. Yet nearly every American saw this live on CNN with his own eyes on 2003-03-20 when America did its Shock & Awe bombing of the residential sections of Baghdad on the opening day of the war. Granted, they did not see the blood spurting, but they saw apartments full of families being turned to rubble. Everyone knows perfectly well what happens when a bomb hits an apartment. Americans pretend the $2 trillion they borrowed for the war went for reconstruction. If that were so, every Iraqi would be living in a 450,000 dollar mansion. That money clearly went for mayhem and destruction. Soldiers are trained and paid to kill, not build schools or hand out candy. America has behaved worse than Nazi Germany. Americans plug their ears while praying for their soldiers, as if that would erase their responsibility. US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have posted on the Internet “several hundred’ photographs of mutilated corpses from “the real war” in exchange for free on-line pornography.


American Imperialism

 

 

Watch this common sense video on how to take back America.

 
 

America...Sinking Currency, Sinking Country!

Watch the below video on the causes of debt.

The British pound is back up over $2, the highest level since the Carter era. The Canadian dollar, which used to be worth 65 cents, is worth more than the U.S. dollar for the first time in half a century.

Oil recently climbed to over $200 a barrel. Gold, down to $260 an ounce not so long ago. Gold has climbed steadily while oil took a nose dive, but will it last?

Gold, silver, oil, the euro, the pound and the Canadian dollar all suddenly soared in value in just a few years, while the US dollar has taken a global beating! Now as of May 2009 the world is in a major crisis with plunging real estate value, tourism, commercialism and credit. S of Aug.09 the Feds just poured 2 trillion dollars of play money into the corrupt industries and markets.

The dollar has plummeted in value, more so in Bush's term than during any comparable period of U.S. history. Indeed, Bush presided over a worldwide abandonment of the global health and economy.

Was it all Bush's fault? Alone no one man can destroy America's economy and global status, but through his ignorance and willingness to let others do as they wish...he has definitely did his share.

The dollar is plunging because America has been living beyond her means, borrowing $2 billion a day from foreign nations to maintain her standard of living and to sustain the American Imperialism. And printing trillions of unsecured paper money.

The prime suspect in the death of the dollar is the massive trade deficits America has run up, some $6 trillion in total since the passage of NAFTA and the creation of the World Trade Organization in 1994.

In 2006, that U.S. trade deficit hit $764 billion. The current account deficit, which includes the trade deficit, plus the net outflow of interest, dividends, capital gains and foreign aid, hit $857 billion, 6.5 percent of GDP. As some of us have been writing for years, such deficits are unsustainable and must lead to a decline of the dollar.

A sinking dollar means a poorer nation, and a sinking currency has historically been the mark of a sinking country. And a superpower with a sinking currency is a contradiction in terms.

What does this mean for America and Americans?

As nations realize that the dollars they are being paid for their products cannot buy in the world markets what they once did, they will demand more dollars for those goods. This will mean rising prices for the imports on which America has become more dependent than we have been since before the Civil War.

U.S. tourists traveling to the countries whence their ancestors came will find that the money they saved up does not go as far as they thought.

U.S. soldiers stationed overseas will find the cost of rent, gasoline, food, clothing and dining out takes larger and larger bites out of their paychecks. The people those U.S. soldiers defend will be demanding more and more of their money.

U.S. diplomats stationed overseas, students and businessmen are already facing tougher times.

U.S. foreign aid does not go as far as it did. And there is an element of comedy in seeing the United States going to Beijing to borrow dollars, thus putting our children deeper in debt, to send still more foreign aid to African despots who routinely vote the Chinese line at the United Nations.

The Chinese, whose currency is tied to the dollar, and Japan will continue, as long as they can, to keep their currencies low against the dollar. For the Asians think long term, and their goals are strategic.

China — growing at 10 percent a year for two decades and now growing at close to 12 percent — is willing to take losses in the value of the dollars it holds to keep the U.S. technology, factories and jobs pouring in, as their exports capture America's markets from U.S. producers.

The Japanese will take some loss in the value of their dollar hoard to take down Chrysler, Ford and GM, and capture the U.S. auto market as they captured our TV, camera and computer chip markets.

Asians understand that what is important is not who consumes the apples, but who owns the orchard.

Other nations that have kept cash reserves in U.S. Treasury bonds and T-bills are watching the value of these assets sink. Not fools, they will begin, as many already have, to divest and diversify, taking in fewer dollars and more euros and yen. As more nations abandon the dollar, its decline will continue.

The oil-producing and exporting nations, with trade surpluses, like China, have also begun to take the stash of dollars they have and stuff them into sovereign wealth funds, and use these immense and growing funds to buy up real assets in the United States — investment banks and American companies.

Nor is there any end in sight to the sinking of the dollar. For, as foreigners demand more dollars for the oil and goods they sell us, the trade deficit will not fall. And as the U.S. government prints more and more dollars to cover the budget deficits that stretch out — with the coming retirement of the baby boomers — all the way to the horizon, the value of the dollar will fall. And as Ben Bernanke at the Fed tries to keep interest rates low, to keep the U.S. economy from sputtering out in the credit crunch, the value of the dollar will fall.

The chickens of free trade are coming home to roost.

America; The Lost Child!
Editorial submitted by; Mike Smith
Nov. 2007

American wake-up call!
Is it not time for the world and especially Americans to grind their industries of war to a halt and once and for all realize that the billions of hard working citizen's tax dollars are sucked into the vacuum of profit generated companies selling weapons of war to every corner of the globe, which are the main cause of global conflicts. The resources could definitely be put to better uses. America and most countries producing weapons are definitely not biased or selective in whom they sell their weapons. They sell them pretty much to anyone and everyone, dictators, corrupt regimes, neighboring tribes, etc. and will supply all sides in the conflicts, such as in the Iraq-Iranian war of the late 80's. As a super power the leading dog in this pack is the USA and the American tax payers have given free reign to the war dogs and without batting an eye they continue to fund the development of new and even more deadlier weapons in a never ending cycle of insanity. And for what...so some fat cat good ole boys can smoke Cuban cigars...buy more beach homes and spend more time leisurely traveling the globe demeaning women in poor countries? Isn't it time to fund alternate energy, build more and better hospitals, provide affordable health care for your citizens? The USA, alone could end the world' hunger, develop safe and clean fuel and other technologies to save our dying planet. They could fund greater scientific space exploration, spend more resources on curing diseases, and even fund free global universities? If this vast amount of funds were freed up the USA could even spend a few billion on building safe electric rail lines across it's vast expanse as alternate and less environmentally harmful travel.  

Fear Mongering! Now is the time to acknowledge that the cost for fear mongering is extremely too high? Where's the sanity? Where is the global peace promised at the end of each war? The western countries consistently pretend to be under threat in justifying their global wars, but in reality they're the ones behind the real terror. Seeking and demanding self empowerment they pre-empty vicious attacks on countries with little or no defense capabilities, as they continue to plunder the earth of its resources, and retain their statistical importance. Loudly and fallaciously these power brokering countries cry out in fear for their security, while proceeding to destroy the economy and livelihood of entire regions, mostly vandalizing the poor and hapless victims of third world nations. Blindfolding their own citizens with panic the western governments pursue what they believe to be their right to accumulate excessive wealth in maintaining their leisurely lifestyles. They definitely are masters of deceit in their continuance of strengthening their global bullying. Christians vainly declare their absolute redemption from their own self serving God, thus making it easier to accept their vile deeds of self-gratuity. These rich, obese and lazy citizens of the west moan the death of a pet, but turn their backs to the cries of millions of people suffering from war, famine, and disease, both natural and man-made calamities. Where is their logic, sanity and compassion, and most definitely... where is the love for their fellow human beings? America was once a nation of envy, of respect and gratitude, but now it's a nation of fearing and loathing. Are Americans proud of their self-serving achievements? Do they really believe in their ridiculous two party political system, which in its total and quite obvious corruption is ludicrous. The toughest decision these complacent people ponder is which of these malignant good ole boy law school graduates do they vote for...asshole A or asshole B? Either and you still end up in the outhouse. And to add insult to injury, perhaps as much as a billion dollars is spent on a single presidential election...peeking into the realm of sheer insanity to say the least!

With all the fiber of my existence and worldly experience I will never accept the words of rhetoric spewing from the mouths of those with the most to gain and when I hear the words "Trust Me...Vote for Me" or my favorite..."I will keep America Safe" I get chills up and down my spine. And to influx their self gratifying run for power...they all proclaim to be God fearing people. Which God...the God of Bullshit?

By birth I am an American, my Mother being mostly a full blooded Piute Indian with my Father being of Scottish and Norwegian decent. I guess you might say that I am quite an odd combination of Viking and native American. My Norwegian blood drives me, while my Indian blood bonds me to the planet. Reading this article you might assume that I am no longer a proud American? You would be correct in your assumption. As a child in America we were taught to feel pride in our country. We were coached to say our morning pledge of allegiance at school, to salute the flag and to always be thankful of being born in this God fearing nation. Yes, I, like millions of other Americans believed, wanted to believe, in the fervor of the patriotic hype. They fed us their deceit as if it were chocolate candy. The patriotism, political and religious agendas created by our so called perfect forefathers and forever manipulated by every preceding leader, educator and preacher in continuing to perpetuate the lies. They have conspired in making Americans believe that societies elevated and self proclaimed are the appointed keepers of the moral truths and that they are the only ones wise or worthy enough to lead the common man and in keeping them secure and on the right path...their path! This directional conditioning was designed to keep the people under mass control, like mindless children, or as some would say...slaves. Thousands of freedom diminishing laws and ridiculous regulations and more enticement for the their citizens to work harder, spend more buying fruitless objects of self indulgence, such  as a bigger house, more cars, expensive jewelry and so on...and making people believe that debt is as American as Apple Pie! Convincing you that it is your duty to wave the American flag and support your government even if it means sending your young off to fight and die in yet another war. The Whitehouse and Downing Street criminals are quick to bellow their cries for nationalism by spewing their mind boggling echoes of fear and patriotic rhetoric to energize the people into frenzy masses of hysterical idiots and then bleeding them of their monies.

The pulpits of religion and politics continue their mind controlling rituals of preparing the next generation of meek and obedient hard workers, tax payers and little tin soldiers. The psychotic misdeeds of these powerful bloodsucking mongrels cry out to our patriotism with catchy mottos like: "You have but one life to give" and "Its your duty to die with honor for your country" and "Your country needs you" and even more insane, "Onward Christian Soldiers Marching off to War." Boy that one really perturbs me. Illogical fervor swells rampantly in citizens, making them feel even more obligated to their religions and nationalities. The USA military went from mandatory draft to enticing young recruits with huge pay checks, but one thing that never changed is that the military immediately sets out to demean and strip any individuality from them, as they are...after all, just government property, 'GI, does means, Government Issue.'

Personally I doubt that anyone can substantially clarify the reasons America is a warring and barbaric nation; a nation of takers, of people convinced that the world belongs to them and no matter what the needs of others they have the right to lay claim to the globe' resources. No country spends trillions of dollars building offensive weapons they do not plan on using. Westernized nations have and will use their military might to take what they want...whenever...where-ever. With their massive armadas they believe that no nation can stop them in which does nothing more than leading to increased weapon proliferation of the rest of the world them taking defensive measures for global bargaining strengths. Western power's policies of  world policing provide endless and golden opportunities to meddle in the affairs of other nations in which they have become quite successful in their masterfully deceitful manipulation with bribery, threats, monetary devaluation, economical and trade barriers and when required...naval blockades and even war under threat of total annihilation. Unscrupulous power plays and insatiable quenches of wealth keep the world in utter chaos and millions dying of starvation and conflict.

Why does the empowerment of 11th century doctrines of church and state still exist? Why? Because we, the people allow it to remain and continue to support the institutions that keep it in power. The  USA was founded in war, waging bloody battles with our English brethren and then continuing to wage one-sided campaigns of murder against the rightful owners of our newly claimed land...the indigenous Indians...and so began a long history of warring for self proclamation.

Moral Values Without Religion

by Peter Schwartz  (December 25, 2006)
 

Does morality depend upon religion? Most people believe it does, which is a major reason behind the appeal of the religious right. People believe that without faith in a supernatural authority, we can have no moral values--no moral absolutes, no black-and-white distinctions, no firm demarcation between good and evil--in life or in politics. This is the assumption underlying Justice Antonin Scalia's assertion that "government derives its authority from God," since only religious faith can supposedly provide moral constraints on human action.

And what draws people to this bizarre premise--the premise that there is no rational basis for refraining from murder, rape or anarchism? The left's persistent assault on moral values.

That is, liberals characteristically renounce moral absolutes in favor of moral grayness. They insist, for example, that criminals should not be reviled, but should be seen as tragic products of their "social environment"--that teenage mothers are just as entitled to welfare checks as wage-earners are to their paychecks, and that to deny welfare benefits for a child born into a family already receiving welfare is, as the ACLU declares, to "unconstitutionally coerce women's reproductive decisions"--that America is morally equivalent to its enemies, with our own policies having provoked the Sept. 11 attacks and our "unilateralist" actions in Iraq being no different from any forcible occupation of one nation by another.

Repulsed by such egalitarian, anti-"judgmental" absurdities, many people disavow what they regard as leftism's essence: secularism, and turn to religion for their values.

But this is a false alternative. Secularism is simply a viewpoint that disclaims religion; what it embraces, though, may be rational or not. And the absurdities of the left stem precisely from its irrationality--its pervasive emotionalism, its insistence on doing whatever "feels right," its contention that there are no fixed truths, its credo that morality is anything one wishes it to be. The left maintains that no objective principles exist to validate moral judgments. From its multicultural equalization of all societies--savage or civilized--to its belief in an indefinable, "evolving" Constitution, the left rejects the logic of objective standards and enshrines the arbitrariness of subjectivism. Thus, what the left's opponents should disavow is not secularism per se, but rather the replacement of a religious variant of unreason--blind faith--with a secular variant: blind feelings.

The real alternative to the leftist claptrap is a morality of reason. Such a morality begins with the individual's life as the primary value and identifies the further values that are demonstrably required to sustain that life. It observes that man's nature demands that we live not by random urges or by animal instincts, but by the faculty that distinguishes us from animals and on which our existence fundamentally depends: rationality.

With reason as its cardinal value, this code of individualism espouses fixed principles and categorical moral judgments. It demands, for instance, that the initiation of force--the antithesis of reason--be denounced and that an unbridgeable moral chasm be recognized between the criminal and the non-criminal.

Since life requires man to produce what he needs, productiveness is a moral value--thereby making moral opposites out of the industrious worker and the parasitic welfare recipient. Since life requires man to use his own judgment rather than submissively accept the assertions of others, independence is a moral value--making moral opposites out of the person (or nation) acting on his own rational convictions and the one deferring to the consensus of his neighbors (or the U.N.). Since life requires the mind, man's political system must allow him to use it, i.e., freedom is a moral value--making moral opposites out of America, the defender of liberty, and America's enemies, who seek liberty's destruction.

A morality of reason counters the relativism and the undiscriminating "tolerance" of the left.

It also counters a morality of faith, and establishes a genuine "culture of life." Individualism upholds your sovereignty over your life--and refuses to subordinate the preservation of that life to, say, the preservation of embryonic stem cells in some Petri dish. Individualism defends your inalienable right to your life, including your right to end it--and evaluates, say, opposition to assisted-suicide as a desecration of human life, since forcing someone to live who wishes to die is no less evil than forcing someone to die who wishes to live.

There is indeed morality without religion--a morality, not of dogmatic commands, but of rational values and of unbreached respect for the life of the individual.

Might over Right; Doesn't it bother Americans that every inch of their soil was wretched from the dead and dying tribes of free natives? Is not America built on the graves of hundreds of thousands of these people? Did not our admired and worshipped leaders of the past murder the native men, women and children in their unrelenting destruction of not only native’s culture and right to exist they sought and succeeded in diminishing their future place in society. They were murderously seeking to actually eradicate them? The few remaining and scattered tribal people were not even allowed to speak their native language or to practice their ceremonial dances!

Today America persists in this practice of genocide around the globe and remain active in setting up their own capitalistic societies. America's strong self interest beliefs continue to lead the country down the same destructive path, evident even today as they attack and forcibly occupy and wage unrelenting war against Afghanistan and the people of Iraq. Liberation or a thirst for oil and military bases in their quest for global expansion.  Even after thousands of American deaths and the million or so Iraq's they continue to rattle their war sabers with threats against Iraq's neighboring countries of Syria and Iran.

Are Americans and British citizens naive enough to believe that they can secure their peace by waging war around the globe? Are their citizens naive enough to allow themselves to be led down the same path again and again? To go marching blindly off to war every time the rich puppet masters blow their horn of patriotism and don their cloaks of terrorism protectionism? Are the emotionally frenzied people capable of seeing the true reasons for their governments warring atrocities or are they nothing more than what their leaders believe them to be...small children afraid of the dark? Are you, the people, happy living as livestock to be led into constant self-induced chaos? Take a moment out of your busy, but fruitless lives, and ponder the good we could do with the trillions of dollars and wasted ingenuity, along with the countless livelihoods of so many people now laying dead and forgotten in yet another war cemetery? Isn't it time to stop the madness! Get involved. Put your own life on hold and do something to better the lives of others, near and far. Do you part to stop the destruction of our living planet...as it is home to us all. 

Is America really dependent on War for survival? At this time in our history I would have to say yes! It is a matter of record that their government sold out their industries and their people and are now feverishly seeping away the common citizens right to work, to prosper logistically and passing the mass tax burden onto the working middle class. The America, government has allowed and encouraged their companies and industries to move their production facilities to 3rd world nations. Nations that provide no health or safety benefits for their workers and no matter their excuses and reasons...they do it simply  in order to increase the company's profits. Everyone is searching for the fast and easy dollar and seem processed to earn as much as possible, and as quickly as possible, regardless of the consequences. Americans sell out their country's interest without conscience or regret. This mindset stifles the country's growth potential and is now evident in the collapse of the Dollar, the housing and credit market, as well as the massive debit and trade deficit. America is borrowing approximately 2 billion dollars a day to fund it's wars and to prop up it's debtor lifestyle. Commercialism is all about quick profits and living beyond sustainable means.

The American government and their corporate partners orchestrate laws and ridiculous restrictions making it nearly impossible for the production of competitively quality cars, steel, glass, textile, including computers, stereos and other electronic products for export. It's obvious to anyone with a brain that America itself is its greatest enemy. 

Is America still a rich nation? Not 'no…but hell no! They nation is and has been for the last 8 years under the previous disgustingly greedy and corrupt Republican regime a debtor nation with minuses in every aspect of its domestic and global enterprises. And now with Obama, the debt and burden on the American people has sky-rocketed. America has billions in trade deficits with Japan, China, Europe, and other countries, America prints billions of worthless dollars and borrows billions from allies and adversaries like China to finance its Iraqi and Afghanistan wars. The debt of the country spirals out of control as the value of it's dollar sinks to new world lows. Under George Bush the Euro had nearly doubled against the dollar and for the 1st time in nearly 30 years even the Canadian dollar had, for a while, surpassed the dollar.

Should America continue polishing it's pride? Pride of what? America is not only the fastest collapsing global power it is the most loathed and feared nation on Earth. It is the brunt of international comedy, especially when our previously twice elected President opened his mouth to further embarrass us with his moronic and ignorant ramblings as he blunders his way through yet another repetitive speech about terrorism. Hell' the man's an idiot and a joke...a sick joke and a very dangerous one at that!

Is America a secured nation? Not in the slightest. Why? Well, when a nation wages wars and police actions on a global scale they create extremely dangerous situations, and even more determined enemies, and do it while depleting their own resources. Even if we changed our policies today it would take 50 years to rebuild Americas global respect and trust. To initiate the rebuilding of America we, as Americans, must retake our country by removing our heads from the sand and standing up to the corporations and our government by refusing to support them and allowing ourselves to be roll-cast. Did you know that the dreaded IRS is not even listed in any US Article as a branch of the government? And did you know that the Federal Reserve is not even listed in the Governments Blue pages. They are actually listed in the white pages near Fedx.

America's corrupt and unjust self-serving world policies will continue to decline it's world's standing as a global power, as they do nothing more than empower and enrage their enemies on an ever increasing scale. As a result America and her allies will continue to be despised and thus have no choice other than to  live in constant fear of it's enemies, real or imagined. The US is its own worst enemy as the nightmarish and fearful scenario scripted by large American companies selling their souls, and yours, for profits...large profits continue. The major oil companies reap billions in quarterly profits while millions of Americans lose their jobs, their livelihoods and even their homes. Our Gov. bails out the greed and failed financial institutions and as soon as Wall Street markets go up, even a little, they proclaim the recession is over, but make no such claims or admissions of our failed social and economical failures. What are the western governments doing about the greed and market manipulations? Nothing and why should they when their very livelihoods are supported by the very same industries they are supposedly regulating. Who pays for this? Isn't it again obvious that you and every citizen on the planet pay for these failures by our leaders! I often wonder why are the world's most crucial commodities traded on the global stock market? It's entirely insane to allow greedy men and corrupt companies to profit by sky-rocketing oil and other prices with induced speculation and hoarding and/or dumping shares?

Inept security policies. In their endless attempts to keep it's citizens in fear America's leaders bankrupt the nation with fruitless implementations of so-called security in the airports and placing metal detectors in schools, banks, etc., but wouldn't dare go against the gun associations by passing stricter gun laws. Cheap and easily obtainable weapons kill  thousands of citizens each year! If that isn't bad enough the governments go even farther...they consistently raise the limits of allowable poisons in your water, air and food. They seldom, if ever regulate the constant bombardment by the legal drug pushers, drug companies, ads encouraging it's citizens to consume a never ending assortment of pharmaceuticals. In the midst of being over worked, over taxed, immensely burdened and pretty much in a drug induced state of mind you, the citizen, the tax payer, must live in fear state sponsored terrorism. Don't allow yourselves to be herded like cattle with sound-bites. Logic not hysteria should be applied! And stop poisoning yourselves with drugs...legal or not.

Ignorance leads to either hysteria or complacency and isn't your life difficult enough in daily turmoil without even more generated stress from political propaganda? If you persist in living in hyped chaos at least do so with your eyes wide open. Question everything, doubt everything and always stand up for your rights...not just as an American, but as a human. Ask yourself if security is truly elevated by giving up your water bottle, shampoo and fingernail clippers at the airport? Is it really making you safer when airport security makes old women and young kids remove their shoes? Facts are that billions of tons of cargo pour through your open ports in unchecked containers each month. But the Gov. would never impede capitalism...just it's people.

Are you safe on your streets or in your home? Are the threats of so-called global activists the real danger when considering that your streets, cities and towns are some of the most dangerous in the world? Americans, as well as 99.99% of the world's populace are much more likely to die from a car wreck, bad food, a drug overdose, medical malpractice, or a common cold or even from drowning in your bathwater than you would ever have from being killed by an extremist. America is one of the world's leaders in random violence and it's citizens are more likely to get murdered by a family member or  neighbor than a stranger. It leads the globe in murder, rape, car-jacking, robbery, random acts of violence even in spite of your country having more people per capita in jails and prisons than most any country in the world. It's insane to have more young people behind bars than in Universities.

America's educational system is horrific and problematic kids are simply guided through the system regardless of their grades. A country where moral value is translated into dollar signs...$$$. Where success is judged by the car you drive and/or the number of vain accessories you process and not by social or conservational  involvement, such as doing your part in protecting the environment, charitable work or activities in stopping the actions of your out of control politicians. America has, had, one of the world's highest GNP, but spends a great majority outside of it's borders on global wars, policing, offensive weaponry, while it's infra-structure crumples. Wouldn't the country's resources be spent wiser by allocating a larger portion of it's trillions on global peace initiatives, disease and hunger campaigns in impoverished nations, arms control and hundreds of other sane and humane activities at home and abroad. Is war really productive in the long term and isn't it simply a guise in gaining global dominance? Are not the poisons of greed and self proliferation really the problems? Americans and western societies are products of commercialism, radicalism, religionist self-righteousness and cultureless lifestyles. Their youth are out of touch and out of control and insensitive to others and being prone to murdering others for pride, for their cars, money, drugs and in some incidences...even for their shoes. Americans and many European countries are deeply burdened in stress and a loss of personal freedoms and in that regard have become impatient, judgmental, as well as racists with temperamental tendency of instantaneous violence. The young are alienated, the old abandoned and the rest are simply stressed to death...what can or could we expect from such societies. If the American dream is nothing more than being in a pit of debt than people really should wake up from their horrific dream!

Watch the below video; The Dumbing Down of America

                                      

Homeland Security...what a play on words...like so many words paraphrased in Bush's 3rd grade speeches of sound bites like the constant referral to freedom, terrorist...and his constant referral to God. I shivered whenever I dared to listen to his mispronounced words of rhetoric repetitively used in his brain-dead out-bursts, which to any coherent person portrayed his sheer and utter contempt for human intelligence and left me, personally, feeling like I was trapped in a living soap opera. If having to know that the world is laughing at your president and your country in general isn't bad enough...there is the constant news bites instilling a blackening veil of confusion on what's really going on in the world. Taking in the consideration that most Americans know little about the world and even less about their country's involvement in global wars, murder, torture of prisoners or the destruction of the environment. It brings to mind the insane proclamations from WW2's Hitler, "Scream it loud and long enough and the people will believe anything."

Home land security is a staged and well rehearsed play in America's guise to keep the world divided and on edge. The leaders constant cry of "Wolf" instills blind obedience and fear in their citizens in order to keep their support. The hidden and sinister goals are not to be found in their spoken words and must be viewed at all times with utter skepticism and if not...the end results of their actions and not their words may eventually become evident, but at a high cost. The leaders, rather political, religious or corporate spew their lies with utter disregard of the consequences and use the media to elevate the sheer panic in proclaiming that the very way of our Christian life is in grave danger from Muslims, and pretty much everyone, including immigrants, the Communists, the Chinese, Russians and so on. The repeated rhetoric provides justification for their global insurgency and police actions. The people of the world need to understand that these governments hide the truth that they, themselves, are the real threats. The global disruptions to peace and equality are central banks, climate change, wars, installation of puppet regimes, weapon proliferation, induced poverty, man-made diseases, along with Free Trade, NAFTA and one world policies are the real and eminent threats. The continuous mind boggling bullshit not only makes me angry...it makes me want to take the first available space ship to a galaxy far, far away! And it's not so much that the governments are doing it, that's expected, but its because the people actually believe the bullshit. "Oh, and by the way...God will save you...the sky's falling and your investments are secure." 

The truth is that America, as well as their ass kissing allies, England, Australia and especially Israel, are the real terrorist nations. I must also mention China and their demonic involvement with the government and juntas in Sudan's genocide of the tribal people in Darfur in removing them from their oil rich territory. China also gives their full support to the military dictators in Miramar and are deeply involved in controlling resources throughout Africa. And never mentioned is Israel compilation of over 100 nuclear weapons and that they manufacture nerve, biological and countless other dangerous weapons of war. Israel was one of the first nations to build these weapons and there are beliefs that they began the world's nuclear proliferation, selling the technology to the USSR and/or China and other regimes. Yet there's never a word from the Jewish controlled medias!

Think about it! Aren't the rich civilizations mostly the one's involved in global wars, support of dictators, arms proliferation, corporate corruption, global scandals, and are they not the leading polluters? Then there's the pollution of our seas and waterways, deforestation, use of pesticides, unwarranted slaughter of animals and sea life, and all in their desire for exotic delicacies and unquenchable lust for novelties and artifacts, such as skins of endangered tigers, leopards, etc. It's the rich countries that endanger the elephants for ivory, the dolphins and giant whales for their meat, the tiger bones for increasing impotent men's sexuality, etc. How could anyone with a brain believe that eating the bone powder of a beautiful and endangered Tiger would improve their sex life? The insanity spreads throughout the globe with the deforestation of rain forests, encroachment on animal habitats, the pollution of our rivers, lakes, oceans and even our atmosphere with every possible chemical and toxic waste. Are not these same responsible countries also the ones  invading, occupying, bombing, killing, imprisoning, and torturing, people all over the world, while passing out bibles and tainted vaccinations? Do they not set the world's policies, trade agreements, and global prices of all products and services? Are they not the same countries that steam their warships and fly their bombers to every corner of the world? I would believe that it would be most difficult to say no to any offered trade concession when you face such intimidation???

The rich nations, especially the USA, Europe, Russia and China are feverish in their goals of arming, impoverishing and in overthrowing world leaders being of disagreement with their goals and policies. These countries have gained power and wealth by whatever means available, corporate, financial, theft, as well as bribery, support of corrupt leaders, instilment of puppet regimes, and even actual military force when required. Since the first fleet of wooden ships sailed from England, Spain, Portugal and Nederland, etc. the world's self righteous have used their religions and military might to rob, rape and plunder the world's wealth. They did and are doing so with total disregard to the local populaces and/or consequences.

The CIA, Britain's MI6, also known as SIS and Israel's Mossad, as well as the Chinese and Russian state sponsored power brokers, all have their dirty hands in the world's economies. They are in fact the perpetrators of the global distribution of drugs and armaments, just in exposing the tip of the iceberg. Wealthy nations did not and do not obtain great wealth with tender mercies or fair treatment of others nor by displaying concern for their planet. They are and will always be ruthless in their self empowerments.

The real drug cartels! Haven't you noticed that the poppy fields in Afghanistan were being cultivated with new American supplied tractors? Do you honestly believe that America invaded Panama to unseat a dictator? A dictator that they, themselves, placed into power! George Bush senior was a personal friend of Noriega and kept him in power as long as he, Noriega, was an asset in the movement of Columbia's illegal drugs. When Mr. Noriega became a liability Mr. Bush, at great expense to the American tax payer, ordered the military to invade, remove their elected President Noriega and regain total control of Panama and the canal, which had been agreed to be handed over to Panama a few months later than the American invasion. Again, the American people turned a blind eye and never even questioned their country's actions. The billions made with illegal drugs contribute immensely to America's budget of covert activities around the globe.

The above applies to Saddam Hussein in Iraq. The US put him in power, made billions from arming his regime than misled him in attacking Iran, weakening both countries economies and ability to wage war. Then the USA provoked him into invading Kuwait giving the Western powers the excuse they sought for destroying Iraq's military even further. Years of bombing and severe sanctions and falsehoods of his capabilities eventually led to a full scale imperialist  invasion, which occurred years later under another Bush. After billions of dollars, years of murdering Iraqis and destroying the entire infrastructure of the country...America now has what it wanted from the beginning...secured oil supplies. The war in Afghanistan was never about the Taliban or the so-called non existent Al' Qaeda it was and is to secure territory for the building of a huge pipe line through Afghanistan's northern regions and to build large airbases for the future invasion of Iran, which borders Afghanistan.

The American CIA and special forces are everywhere undermining the world's governments and economies in ambushing and removal, or disposal, of anyone in their way. Their massively intimidating war ships cruise around the world, while their policy makers bribes, coerce and/or threaten every nation in the world for the building of their bases under the guise of protection. Then they forcibly demand the host countries to open their markets with bribery or bullying them into privatizing their resources, such as oil, natural gas, electric facilities and even their water. Once accomplished the American and/or other wealthy nations move in their corporate partners to purchase the resources and companies for a little of nothing.

Then the new controllers inflate the value of the commodities whereas the local citizens can no longer afford real estate, access to water, gas, oil, timber, minerals and even their own produced food products, etc. Do you really believe that Britain and America became the richest and most powerful nations on Earth because God willed it? Even though these people believe that the white Christian race are God's chosen people??? Isn't it more rational to accept the facts that it was because these nations developed ships and sent their explores around the globe armed with superior weapons. In the belief that the early Christian crusaders had the blessings of not only their Kings & Queens, but the actual blessing of their God they were encouraged to discovery and commandeer the world's resources at any cost...even if it meant obliterating entire races of people.

The truths are in history, as waste was laid to the world's aboriginals, such as the American Indians, Australia's Aboriginals, African tribesmen, South and Central American natives and so on and so on... Think about it...has anything changed and aren't we now in the Middle East killing and occupying their land for control of their oil fields? Aren't we still in Africa stealing their diamonds, timber, oil and the entirety of their resources. As commercialism's greed for more and more grow and in supplementing their own limited access to land they coerce the Brazilians to burn down the world's crucial oxidizing rain forests in order to graze cows for the world's insatiable desire for more beef. The primary blame for this is another American profiteer...McDonalds INC.  Now our demand for more alternate fuel oils is enticing poor countries to cut down their forest and tropical jungles for growing soy beans and palm trees for palm oil. The rich buy the ivory in expediting the demise of the elephant...the Japanese dine on whale and dolphin meat...the Chinese consume a few million shark fins a year and so on it goes. The world's hunger for more erotic food are pushing the world's exotic animals and fishery to extinction...and so it continues with no one...man or God to stop the destruction of our planet. Prophecy or just man's immaturity?

America's Industry. Consider that America can no longer even make a decent car, or pretty much anything else, they have for the past several decades used their industrial might and budget in perpetuating their weapons industry, while the country's people are literally be led into greater and greater debt! That alone should tell you something agendas. It appears that Americans choose not be too concerned as after-all they live in the land blessed by the God of Moses and David...Jewish prophets and deity, nonetheless. America, the land of the free and the brave where living in blind ambience and debt, still manage to validate their existence as a God fearing people. Which God, oh yes...the God written and detailed by Israel... whom are, by self degree, God's chosen people. It is sad that Americans actually believe they are blessed by some all powerful Enmity having inherited his blessings and permission to do whatever they damn well please. First it was the crusaders, then the Portugal, Spanish, Dutch and English, and so on, and now America takes it's turn in spreading their self serving religion and democracy and do it with the force of a so-called avenging Angel...I believe its called the New World Order!

Do I hate my country? Absolutely not all the people, just the leaders, the hypocrites, the elite and those too dumb to see! personally, I am not deaf, dumb or blind and while I do not believe to be better than others, I am fully aware of man's inability to govern others with fairness and justice, much less with compassion and as we all know...power corrupts even the most valiant of hearts. The world's leaders are bestowed with power over their citizens and in such an elevated position it is most difficult when looking down on your fellow man, to share in their challenges, fears and aspirations. In general I would say that mankind is a very immature species and suffers from self awareness, self empowerment, self righteousness and an inability to understand the complexities of our planet fruitful, but fragile ecosystem.

Am I angry? You god damn right I'm angry and you should be too! Why? Because it's all happening again in Iraq and Afghanistan and our leaders, being civilian or political are now beating the war drums against Iran. The seductress of wealth and power envelopes America and has driven her to conduciveness, unproductiveness with a sense of self empowerment. America uses more, wastes more and pollutes more than any other nation and it's also well known that America spends the world's highest percentage of their GNP, even going into immense debt, on weaponry in their endless obsession to spread their cultureless and commercialistic lifestyles in every region of the world. Prospering by greed, blindness and violence is a fast track to self destruction and as quoted. "live by the gun...die by the gun" rings ever so true! Who benefits...the banks, which are the global financers of wars.

Wealth by any means has created a most dangerous social and environmental predicament in which I am not positive if mankind has the mordacity, ability and/or the will power to overcome, much less the inclination to give up their self-inductive lifestyles. To paraphrase an old cowboy proverb, "It seems we have a tendency to close the barn door after the cows escape!" We just can't accept or absorb the realities that we are just one of millions of species on this planet and that each is co-dependent on the other for survival. It should be apparent that the American and western civilizations are not living in harmony with the world and are simply existing day to day, behaving like spoilt children...well armed and extremely dangerous children.

Tried and proved for centuries by self serving politicians the art of deception in retaining control is used repeatedly in uniting the people against both real and imaginary foes, viral, environmental and/or other species. The most common deceptions are the creation of pending atrophies, natural or man-made and threats, real and imaginary, from those wishing to destroy, or change, their way of live, such as in wars with Japan, Germany, Vietnam, now Iraq and Afghanistan, and so on. During our 50 year cold war nightmare with our archrivals, the Russians and Chinese the world suffered immensely. Then we include our social and racial enemies, the Blacks, Mexicans, Socialists or Communists and continue our religious differences and once again declare war on Muslims by classifying them as extremists and terrorists. Crying wolf and declaring that our western way of life is threaten has worked in the past and is working now. Just more instilled fears rendering us susceptible to others rhetoric. Personally I ponder our logic in bankrupting our nations by spending our time, energy, talent and resources building trillion dollar arsenals of offensive, not defensive, weaponry. If America and Europe in general, are indeed under attack, as so loudly and repeatedly proclaimed, shouldn't we at least be building up defensively? I just don't accept that we must fight our real and imaginary enemies abroad for safeguarding our security. Doesn't global proliferation actually increase the danger by instilling fear and panic thus creating many additional enemies...turning our neighbors and friends into foes? Our ships, planes and soldiers wage conflicts around the world in establishing and retaining our global dominance in the guise of keeping the peace. The question is...peace for whom?

Why am I so harshly critical toward America and her allies? It should be obvious that I simply want the America I once loved to wake up and get their asses of the couch, to turn off their televisions, stop waving their flags and most definitely to get their heads out of their bibles and stand up to their government and their profit driven corporations. The people are the country and need to reclaim their heritage and their societies back from the despicable policy makers and their corporate supporters. As an American I ask and demand that our citizens reclaim our country. Haven't we been pawns and sheep long enough? How long do we intend to pray and wait for a mystical God to save and redeem us? Please...get involved with the issues destroying our world and realize that our real enemies are our fears and complacencies!

Conducive behavior. Western in general, but all commercialized countries begin conditioning their children to function in very competitive societies that focus mostly on wealth and status-quo. Societies where citizens are evaluated by their university degrees, their jobs, clothes, cars, etc. but nothing is said about the great debt they have incurred. They are consistently led to believe that their way of life must be protected at all costs...even if it means destroying the rest of the world, which includes animals, forests, oceans, the air and so on. A perfect mind-set for becoming excellent candidates for their military. Their parents buy them what they want...not what they need. Do the children really need more war toys, violent video games and should they be allowed, even encouraged, or at least tolerated to watch an endless affray of murder and mayhem movies...and to accept that it's ok to hunt and murder animals, to be aggressive and to do onto others before they do onto them. They're allowed to lie and cheat and are defended with sheer mordacity, even if their sons are accused of date-raping a young girl. These anti-social parents turn a blind eye when their kids consume large qualities of alcohol, take designer drugs, shop and spend enormous sums of money on the latest fashions, electronics and non-valued trendy gadgets and reprehensible clothes. After puberty they have usually been totally stripped of common sense and respect for others and continue their downward spiral of self destruction. Some dying of drugs or killed in cars and some imprisoned for being out of control. It is tragic, but predictable when their parents never took the time or had the willingness to get involved in their children's lives. Then when the child's live has turned out accordingly the parents actually blame their self created society for their kids failures.

Then we have the testosterone driven ego maniacal young boys wanting to prove their machismo by joining the military. Then and if these unbalanced products of a disruptive society get killed in a bullshit war supported by their parents than we as a society whine and blubber like babies, blaming everyone but ourselves. We have been instilled with patriotic fervor to support our governments policies and thus are proud when our young men and women march off to war, but are then so quickly filled with hate and remorse when they are killed or wounded. We just never seem to realize that our children are our own products. These young soldiers have been militarized to kill and even murder proclaimed enemies by our self-serving governments. If these kids should return alive they are elevated and praised as heroes when in reality they are nothing more than institutionalized brain-washed robotic killing machines with no remorse and little consciousness.

Out of touch! The people of our modern, mostly western, world are totally out of touch with themselves, the world around them and everything in between. In solving parenting deficiencies children are pushed toward achieving, even more so than learning. They are given credit cards and birth control pills at 13 and a new car at 16. And the few kids, that do get jobs end up spending every earned dollar trying to be something they're not. Splurging their money on designer jeans, latest cell phones, consistent boozing to impress other degenerates, they call friends. The rest of their time spent on idle chit chat on their $200 cell phones or messaging each other on computers, browsing porn sites, playing video games and the other endless and readily available assortment of nonsensical items of sheer vanity? The really sad issue is they aren't responsible...they're just products of their society in pursuing the consumerism dream, while their parent were too busy to actually do any parenting. Parents of such socities were never made aware that they're terrible at being friends, neighbors, parents, teachers, employees and employers and even worst at being human. They live and die in a small cubicle of work, stress, traffic, junk food and occasional self indulged leisure...and actually believe they have a life. A fulfilled life is not being caught up in an induced comma of commercialism. Such a life is wasteful and truly shameful! 

The world's governments have sold us out to the banks, the lobbyists and their corporate donors. We seem too busy to notice as we blindly chase the fucking American dream...leading us further and further into debt and depression. To pacify our suicidal lifestyles we turn to a long line of pharmaceuticals and booze, making it somewhat easier to bear. Why do we strut our accomplishments but never reference our giant debts. Are the people really proud of having a heavily mortgaged house, that will never be paid off; a new foreign car and other countless playthings like a giant plasma TV, remote controlled lawn mower, golf clubs, boat, a motorcycle and etc. that they seldom ever have the time to enjoy. People just don't realize that their American dream lifestyle comes at a high price, not only in stress, but with undrinkable tap water, chemically polluted air, jammed highways, diets of junk food, unsafe streets and schools, and an out of control government restricting our few remaining liberties and increasing our tax burden in order to bail out the Jewish owned banking system and on top of it all...news of persistent sound-bites of non important rhetoric spewing from every Jewish owned network. Which all news is strictly regulated in accordance to networks FCC masters. (FCC, Federally Controlled Communications.)

Then we must discuss a few million lunatics with guns and drug infested slum areas we're afraid to drive through even in daylight. We live and die up to our eyeballs in debt, but still can't afford to take a decent vacation and are consistently too stressed to enjoy a little romance with our spouses. Many live in constant fear that our out of control kids might hate us and in some incidences...may even murder us for not succumbing to their daily demands for more money and unrestricted freedom. Yes, we should all be proud of our robotic lives in our glass, plastic and concrete environment. But then again, we are taught, conditioned and led to believe that our God will reward our worthless lives with everlasting peace in some spiritual paradisiacal heaven. And while we struggle to retain some sense of reality we are bombarded with fear mongering by our Gov. and police. Scared into submission of ridiculous searches and intrusive policing at the airports, schools and etc. Are we really ignorant enough to live in fear believing that some terrorists jealous of our decrepit lifestyle wish to destroy our screwed up way of live? Now that's hysterical! 

Commercialized societies. In this so called modern society neighbors and co-workers don't know, or care to know, each others names, much less desiring to get involved with one another. Living in societies where it's more unacceptable to incorrectly roll up your water hose than it is to shoot someone for trespassing. Our so-called civilized countries have far less freedoms than most any 3rd world country. In the US it is illegal to walk down the street or sit in a park enjoying a beer. We can be arbitrarily put in jail for a traffic violation...for having a miniscule amount of marijuana and so on it goes. Now people can be issued fines for smoking a cigarette in a park or on the beach. I saw a sign in an Orlando, FL. parking lot that read that "Loitering is a Felony"...not a fine or a misdemeanor, but a felony! Speak of a screwed up set of values. It appears that it's perfectly ok to dispose of millions of tons of daily waste in the ocean or bury it in some virgin landfill and continuously spew millions tons of chemicals, carbons and etc. into rivers and atmosphere, etc. but we actually pass laws banning smoking a cigarette! Talk about screwed up priorities! Any level of logic would dictate that its insane to legally allow the pollution of the very air we breath with million of vehicles and factories spewing trillions of cubic meters of poison gases, chemicals and etc. that endanger our very existence. What?...smoking a fucking cigarette is so bad, as to warrant penalties?

In the USA I have read horror news stories where some degenerate woman wanting a baby decided to invade a pregnant woman's home, kill her, cut out the fetus and take the infant home with her. A country that bans prostitution, but spends billions in producing violent shows, movies and video games. Where men can be arrested for talking to a female on the street, which at times may even be a cop dressed as a hooker, but its ok to browse the web in search of extremely disgusting and degenerate hardcore porn. To live in a country where you can be arrested for a friendly game of poker with your friends in your own home, but can legally walk into a billion dollar casino and lose everything you own in a matter of minutes. A country where you can go to prison for smoking marijuana, but can legally buy, consume and even overdose on prescription drugs. A land where in every poor neighborhood there's liquor and gun stores on every other corner and in sheer mockery...a church on every block for immediate and convenient redemption.

A Country where self righteous men dignity their existence by going to church on Sunday and then masturbate to images of young girls on the internet. These same men that group with drinking buddies at local bars getting plastered while screaming like childish morons watching a fucking football game? Yet they have no time for any involvement with the issues that are destroying their world. They can not or will not devote any time in giving loving support for their families and never seem to take the time to teach their children anything of real value. Just a few more great examples of the American lifestyle! The same lifestyle, which unfortunately is spreading like a vile spore around the globe? Is such a cultureless society worth preserving??? A society of brainless money driven spiritless robots that actually believe that wrapping their house in plastic sheeting and duct tape will actually protect them from Anthrax? Or that a plane and small fire actually collapsed the two tallest buildings in the world...and that building 7 fell when it suffered no damage, and further accept the lies that a jumbo-jet flew 10 ft. from the ground without hitting streetlights into the Pentagon, which it's damaged was not filmed or investigated. The we are supposed to believe afterwards that some terrorist was spreading Anthrax, but oddly enough, only to non Bush supporters? It eventually leaked that the Anthrax was from a Utah military research facility, but was not even reported by the news media.

Personally I was raised and educated in nature, camping, hiking, fishing, exploring, swimming and playing with my friends and my dogs. We swam in the creeks, rivers and lakes and never worried about contaminates or being murdered by some whacko. I loved star gazing, day dreaming, working on our small farm and basically just being a kid. When I did watch TV I had no desire to watch trash TV. I, instead loved shows like Lost in Space, Gilligan's Island, Bewitched, the Andy Griffin show and so on. Today kids cut their teeth on computer porn, sexual videos from MTV, violent shows of cops, forensics, murder and mayhem...violent shootouts where guns and murder are glorified. Then some Mothers, supposed defenders of their children, become to lazy to cook and thus feed them junk food. The non working women lounge around watching soap operas that go on and on for generations.

And let's not forget our music; disgusting black rap and hip-hop about whores, guns, murder and easy money and never ending ghetto trash relentlessly blasting from stereos, Ipods, computers, TV's and countless other gadgets. Think about it for a minute...being raised and living in the mindless societies of America and western counties "just what the hell do you expect from the people, especially your kids? Living in a country where honking the horn at someone can get you killed is definitely not where I want to live and especially not where I would want to raise my kids. A land where guns are legal but prostitution is not?

America...the land of the free and the home of the brave, yeah, but only if and when superiorly & overwhelmingly armed to the teeth with the latest high tech kill toys, so they can fight the wars without seeing the faces of those slaughtered. Why would any sane person want to live in a land that morns the death of one of their soldiers, but feels nothing for the thousands of innocent people killed in the war that we always start? A country where traffic laws are strictly enforced with a high percentage of the police forces while robbery, murder and mayhem are more common and frequent than an average family going out for dinner. Crime soars while the macho police hide behind every bush, tree and sign waiting to pull you over for going 5 miles over some ridiculously low speed limit. They always have their hands on or near their guns as they walk up to your window. We must never forget the fact that traffic citations generate a hell of a lot of money for our screwed up judicial system. The law states if stopped...stay in your car and keep your hands where the under-trained highly paranoid cop can see them or he might just shoot you...a few dozen times...as happens daily somewhere in the USA. They are geared and instructed to issue as many tickets as they can, so it's almost fruitless to try and persuade them otherwise.  They make you feel as if it's a deserved payment for protecting your safety. And heaven forbid if you're not wearing your seat-beat! There's another couple of hundred dollar fine. In all irony a loaded gun on your seat may go totally unmentioned. It’s just one of the country's thousand or so warped concepts of selective freedoms. based on one of our archaic amendments that made a vague reference that we as good ole Americans have the right to bear arms and if we feel threaten...we have the right to shoot and kill another human being for whatever reason we believe is necessary. We hold greater value on things than human lives.

Let's not forget the patriotic bumper stickers on most cars and trucks proclaiming "God bless our troops in Iraq." Not that the typical American even knows where the fuck Iraq or Afghanistan are located. Shouldn't we at least be obligated in learning how to spell the name of the country we're destroying? Hey people...we've fallaciously declared war on those poor people...please...give a damn! 

And is this, our American lifestyle, what we're fighting and dying for? What we're pushing down the throats of others around the world? Our fucked up culture of bigotry, racial despise, hated, impatience, intolerable treatment of others, as well as hunting our wild animals, and then there's our self serving global policies, along with our malcontent, obesity, greed and cruelty, as well as our philosophy of "God loves me because I'm a white Christian" So much bullshit, it's frightening!. The for all you people wearing your self-righteous asshole attitude cops and security guards, wearing your gun and badges around like you have the absolute right to kill someone for shop lifting some over-priced clothes at a boutique or not obeying your commands quickly enough? This is the culture and lifestyle you're protecting? Your right to carry concealed guns and the absolute right to shoot someone for generally just pissing you off?  That's not freedom...its mayhem. Freedom is having the right and obligation to keep your government in check...having the right to not roll up your fucking water hose, the right to sit on your porch or in the park and drink a beer or smoke a cigarette. Freedom is the right to walk you dog at 3:AM without fear of getting mugged or shot by a paranoid cop. Freedom is having the right to be gay or an Atheist without persecution. If I remember my history correctly...isn't escaping religious bigotry and micro-control of our everyday lives by self appointed masters just a few of the reasons we left England so long ago?

America's Decline

America...Sinking Currency, Sinking Country!

The British pound is back up over $2, the highest level since the Carter era. The Canadian dollar, which used to be worth 65 cents, is worth more than the U.S. dollar for the first time in half a century.

Oil is back on the rise. Gold fell off its recent mark. Millions have lost their homes and jobs and the world's just basically falling apart.

Have gold, silver, oil, the euro, the pound and the Canadian dollar all suddenly soared in value in just a few years?

Nope. The dollar has plummeted in value, more so in Bush's term than during any comparable period of U.S. history. Indeed, Bush presided over a worldwide abandonment of the American dollar.

Is it all Bush's fault? Alone no one man can destroy America's economy and global status, but he has definitely did his share.

The dollar is plunging because America has been living beyond her means, borrowing $2 billion a day from foreign nations to maintain her standard of living and to sustain the American Imperio.

The prime suspect in the death of the dollar is the massive trade deficits America has run up, some $14 trillion in total since the passage of NAFTA and the creation of the World Trade Organization in 1994.

In 2006, that U.S. trade deficit hit $764 billion. The current account deficit, which includes the trade deficit, plus the net outflow of interest, dividends, capital gains and foreign aid, hit $857 billion, 6.5 percent of GDP. As some of us have been writing for years, such deficits are unsustainable and must lead to a decline of the dollar.

A sinking dollar means a poorer nation, and a sinking currency has historically been the mark of a sinking country. And a superpower with a sinking currency is a contradiction in terms.

What does this mean for America and Americans?

As nations realize that the dollars they are being paid for their products cannot buy in the world markets what they once did, they will demand more dollars for those goods. This will mean rising prices for the imports on which America has become more dependent than we have been since before the Civil War.

U.S. tourists traveling to the countries whence their ancestors came will find that the money they saved up does not go as far as they thought.

U.S. soldiers stationed overseas will find the cost of rent, gasoline, food, clothing and dining out takes larger and larger bites out of their paychecks. The people those U.S. soldiers defend will be demanding more and more of their money.

U.S. diplomats stationed overseas, students and businessmen are already facing tougher times.

U.S. foreign aid does not go as far as it did. And there is an element of comedy in seeing the United States going to Beijing to borrow dollars, thus putting our children deeper in debt, to send still more foreign aid to African despots who routinely vote the Chinese line at the United Nations.

The Chinese, whose currency is tied to the dollar, and Japan will continue, as long as they can, to keep their currencies low against the dollar. For the Asians think long term, and their goals are strategic.

China — growing at 10 percent a year for two decades and now growing at close to 12 percent — is willing to take losses in the value of the dollars it holds to keep the U.S. technology, factories and jobs pouring in, as their exports capture America's markets from U.S. producers.

The Japanese will take some loss in the value of their dollar hoard to take down Chrysler, Ford and GM, and capture the U.S. auto market as they captured our TV, camera and computer chip markets.

Asians understand that what is important is not who consumes the apples, but who owns the orchard.

Other nations that have kept cash reserves in U.S. Treasury bonds and T-bills are watching the value of these assets sink. Not fools, they will begin, as many already have, to divest and diversify, taking in fewer dollars and more euros and yen. As more nations abandon the dollar, its decline will continue.

The oil-producing and exporting nations, with trade surpluses, like China, have also begun to take the stash of dollars they have and stuff them into sovereign wealth funds, and use these immense and growing funds to buy up real assets in the United States — investment banks and American companies.

Nor is there any end in sight to the sinking of the dollar. For, as foreigners demand more dollars for the oil and goods they sell us, the trade deficit will not fall. And as the U.S. government prints more and more dollars to cover the budget deficits that stretch out — with the coming retirement of the baby boomers — all the way to the horizon, the value of the dollar will fall. And as Ben Bernanke at the Fed tries to keep interest rates low, to keep the U.S. economy from sputtering out in the credit crunch, the value of the dollar will fall.

The chickens of free trade are coming home to roost.

Religion

America's God. Consider that America can no longer even make a decent car, or pretty much anything else, as their industrial might and their budget is spent toward perpetuating the weapons industry and doing so at the demise of their own infrastructure! That alone should tell you something about the insane policies of their leaders. Americans are ignorant in believing that they shouldn't be too concerned and leave their lives and the future of the world in the hands of their self appointed God...the Jewish God of Moses and Abraham. America, the land of the free and the brave and in immense debt still manage to find blind validation as a God fearing people. Which God, oh yes...the God written in some old notes and scrolls transcript by Israel... which are, by self degree, God's chosen people. It is sad that Americans actually believe they are blessed by some all powerful Enmity and have inherited his blessings and permission to do whatever they damn well please. First it was the crusaders, then the Portugal, Spanish, Dutch and English, and so on, and now America takes it's turn in spreading their self serving religion and democracy with the force of an avenging Angel...I believe they call it The New World Order!

Do I hate my country? Absolutely not! But then, I am not deaf, dumb or blind and while I do not blame anyone specifically, I am, however, fully aware of man's inability to govern others with fairness and justice, much less with compassion and as we all know...power corrupts even the best of hearts. The world's leaders are bestowed with power over their citizens and in such an elevated position it is most difficult, when looking down on your fellow man, to share in their challenges, fears and aspirations. In general I would say that mankind is a very immature species and is suffering from self awareness, self empowerment, religion and an inability to understand the complexities of our planet fruitful, but fragile ecosystem.

Self empowerment over others and our planet in general has created a most dangerous social and environmental predicament in which I am just not positive if mankind has the mordacity, ability and/or the will power to correct by changing the way we live. To paraphrase an old cowboy proverb, "It seems we have a tendency to close the barn door after the cows have gotten out!" We must understand that we are just one of millions of species living on this planet and that each is co-dependent on the other for survival. It is also apparent that this is more true in American and western style of civilization where they live they fruitless lives of spoilt children, but sadly and most precariously, they are very well armed and extremely dangerous children.

And it has been tried and proved for centuries by greedy politicians that to keep the people under control they must unite them against both real and imaginary foes, viral or chemical, social and/or human. The most common are and have been potential enemy combatants, such as the Japanese, the Germans, Russians, Chinese, etc. Then there's always the social and racial enemies, such as Blacks, Mexicans, Socialists or Communists and now if that's not enough we've included religious differences and declared war on Muslims by classifying many as extremists and terrorists. Crying wolf and declaring that our western way of life is threaten seems to be working as we sell our very souls to our fears. Personally I keep asking myself that if America is under attack, as so loudly and repeatedly proclaimed, then why are the majority of our arsenals of weapons offensive instead of defensive? Why do we proclaim that we must fight our enemies abroad in safeguarding our welfare when all we really succeed in doing is turning our imagined enemies into real ones! Our ships, planes and soldiers wage conflicts around the world in establishing and retaining our global dominance, while pretending to establish peace...peace for whom?

Why am I so critical toward America and her allies? It should be obvious that I simply want the America I once loved to wake up and get their asses of the couch, to turn off their televisions, stop waving their flags and most definitely to get their heads out of their bibles and stand up to their government and their profit driven corporations. In every global locale the people are the country and they need to reclaim their heritage and their societies back from the despicable Jewish bankers, political policy makers and their corporate supporters.  As an American I ask without pause for our citizens to reclaim our country. Haven't we been pawns and sheep long enough? How long do we intend to pray and wait for one of our mystical Gods to save and redeem us? Please...get involved with the issues destroying our world and realize that our real enemies are our fears and complacencies!

Conducive behavior. Western in general, but all commercialized countries begin conditioning their children to function in very competitive societies that focus mostly on wealth and status-quo. Societies where citizens are evaluated by their university degrees, their jobs, clothes, cars, etc. but nothing is said about their mind-boggling debt they have incurred. They are consistently led to believe that their way of life must be protected at all costs...even if it means destroying the rest of the world, which includes nations, millions of people, animals, forests, oceans, the air and so on. A perfect mind-set for the young to become excellent candidates for the military. Their parents buy them what they want...not what they need. Do the children really need more war toys, violent video games and should they be allowed, even encouraged, or at least tolerated to watch an endless affray of murder and mayhem movies...and to accept that it's ok to hunt and murder animals, to be aggressive and to do onto others before they do onto them.

The pampered children of the decadent are allowed and even encouraged to lie and cheat in order to achieve their selfish goals and are then defended with sheer mordacity by their parents when their behavior is reprimanded. How many times have I heard the proclamations of innocence by parents when their children are involved in serious crimes. These social misfits, posing as parents, turn a blind eye when their kids consume large qualities of alcohol or designer drugs, or when they spend enormous sums of money on the latest, and must have, fashion trends, electronics, etc. These children of complacent parents, having never been taught to apply simply logic in their decisions, soon lose respect for themselves and others as they venture further down their pathway of destruction. Some dying of drugs others killed in cars or shootings and even more imprisoned for their out of control behavior. The parents of these killed or imprisoned children whine and sob, and without hesitation pass all of the blame on the very society they created. Never realizing or admitting that their children's failures lay in the fact that they, themselves, never had the willingness or time to get personally involved in their children's lives.

Heroes or militarized executioners? Conducive to the western lifestyles thousands of super competitive testosterone driven young boys are quick to join the military in proving their machismo, and in legally venting their frustrations onto others. The trained and physically, but not mentally, conditioned young warriors are quickly sent off to fight for their country's agendas in far away land. Then, heaven forbid, that these unbalanced products of a disruptive society should get killed in the publicly supported bullshit war the families and their society in general bestow heroism on their young fallen warriors, but fail to questioned the war or their country's involvement. I guess it's true that hindsight and not foresight are the authors of history. How conveniently the blame falls on others for their loses, while remaining constant in their support of their country's agendas. It is and has always been deemed patriotic to blindly and obediently bow to their religions and to their leaders. Personally I feel that these hypnotic behaviors are the real fault of our murderous contempt for others. How can we simply ignore that our young are being militarized to kill and even die in combating self proclaimed enemies of our governments. How can we elevate them to martyrdom and heroic figures of reverence, while ignoring the realities they are no more than institutionalized robotic killing machines. How can we not but blame ourselves for our blind obedience to our self appointed masters...whether they be man or God?

Out of touch! The people of the world in general, and specifically people of westernized democracies, are totally out of touch with themselves, the world around them and everything in between. In resolving their parenting deficiencies young children are given credit cards and birth control pills at 13 and the more wealthy children get a new car at 16 years of age. Then there's the few kids that do get jobs that spends their every earned dollar in trying to be something their not. Splurging their money on designer jeans, latest cell phones and designer drugs, as well as constantly booze themselves into a constant state of limbo to impress the degenerates they call friends. If not working or in school most spend their remaining time in idle chit chat on their $200 cell phones or messaging each other on their $2000 computers, while browsing porn sites. With no real family obligations they also find plenty of time for playing video games and shopping in the malls for an endless assortments of readily available and mostly nonsensical items of vanity? The really sad issue is they aren't responsible...they're just products of their society and are simply pursuing the American dream. The same dream their parents blindly labored away their lives...never having the time or desire to actually do any parenting. A home grown society of horrific parents, dangerous schools and streets, unknown neighbors, timid teachers, and lazy employees and profit driven employers, and under these circumstances how could the people learn to be decent and thoughtful human beings. They live and die in a small cubicle of work, stress, traffic, junk food with rare opportunities of intimacy or leisure, but still believing they actually have a life...sad to say the least! Existing in their self made world of commercialism, where nothing else matters...is not having a life!

America's governments have sold out their citizens  to their corporate brethren, while encouraging the over burdened to blindly persist chasing the fucking American dream...which is nothing more than a psychotic existence in a self contained maze of work, debt and stress where the only relief is self indulgence, booze and prescribed pharmaceuticals. Clinging to a false and mindless pride of living in a super inflated and heavily mortgaged house and driving a foreign car they can't really afford. The women of the West remain depressed and disillusioned and therefore substitute contentment with endless and shopping for items of self reward...clothes, jewelry and tons of numerous playthings for their kids. The men also are being absorbed into the shopping for pleasure and just have to have a giant screen TV, a boat, new golf clubs and so on. This shadowy lifestyle is nothing more than bragging rights when his buddies are invited over for lots of drinking and yahooing at some ball game. Then to push themselves further into debt they charge even more toys like a remote controlled lawn mower, a new car or putting in a pool, or perhaps a motorcycle they have absolutely no time to ride.

To prove my point about citizens be driven into debt by becoming even bigger players in consumerism just count the number of brain dread commercials during one 30 or 60 minute TV show. Then watch the constant commercial bombardments from pharmaceutical companies that have succeeded in getting 80% of Americans hooked on dangerous and expensive chemicals.

People must realize that their western commercial  lifestyle comes at a high price, not only in stress, undrinkable tap water, chemically polluted air, jammed highways, a hasty meal of junk food from the multitude the joints on every corner, but more serious issues like out of control governments, wasteful spending, increased taxes, 34 million illegal immigrants, as well as daily laws depriving them of what few rights they have remaining. In America alone there are a few million lunatics with guns, deployable slum areas that most people wouldn't dare drive through even in daylight, and then to add confusion to mayhem  there's the constant bullshit bombardments of news-bites from the puppet casters of CNN, BBC, ABC, NBC and all the rest of the brain dead stations blaring out their governmentally approved rhetoric all in accordance to their FCC masters. (FCC, Federally Controlled Communications.)

The citizens working their very live away in anticipation of a better live and a secured retirement, but generally end up in debt up to their eyeballs and even after retirement they still can't afford to take a decent vacation. Is this the life you planned...a live so stressed that you can't relax long enough to play with your kids or steal a few passionate moments with your spouse? Does living such a live make you proud? A robotic existence in a glass, plastic and concrete environment. And if such a life isn't bad enough you're ignorant enough to live in fear of actually believing that some terrorists may be jealous of your lifestyle and wishes to destroy your screwed up way of live? Sad, but definitely hysterical! But it will be OK, after all you are a Christian  and you do believe without doubt that your God will reward your worthless live with everlasting bliss in some rainbow paradise you call heaven. Sure' and the tooth fairy lives around the corner and good ole Saint Nick will stop by for some cookies on Xmas Eve.

Commercialized societies. In this so called modern society neighbors and co-workers don't even know each others names, much less get to know one another. Living in societies where it's more acceptable to carry a fire arm than to incorrectly roll up your water hose. These so-called civilized countries that can put you in jail for smoking a a joint and issue fines for smoking a cigarette in public places. A society that can jail an adult for enjoying a beer in a park or on the beach or even for parking in a restricted area. When in Orlando, FL. back in 2004 I saw a sign in front of a convenience store that non customer parking or loitering was a Felony...not a fine or even a misdemeanor, but a felony! Hell, I thought felonies were for criminals? Speak of a screwed up set of values. Why is it perfectly legal to dispose of millions of tons of daily waste in the ocean or buried in some landfill and in the spewing of deadly chemicals and carbons into the world's waters and air, but it's illegal to park in front of a store or even enjoy smoking a cigarette in public or in a bar? Does this seem rational to you...to anyone? Where's the logic that would allow the legal pollution of the very air that we breath with million of vehicles and factories spewing trillions of cubic meters of poison gases that endanger our very existence and "what?...smoking a fucking cigarette is so bad!"

I have sat in awe at bizarre news articles on Yahoo and read an incomprehensible story just a few months ago where some degenerate woman wanting a baby decided to invade a pregnant woman's home, kill her, cut out the fetus and take it home with her. Good ole America, where a grown man has to wear a seat-beat when driving...a helmet when riding his bike and an endless array of other restrictive rules, but at the same time, as mentioned previously, can legally arm himself with as many guns as he wants or can afford. Mmm, this must come from watching too many western and gangster shows and movies for the last 45 or so years? That would help explain while every man, woman, child and hooligan is armed to the teeth! Then there's the music, hip hop, rap, ghetto crap about guns and whores...hell' that's logical..., well, at least in America. Simply brain wash the kids with mega-million dollar movies of rape, murder and mayhem and lets all drop our pants down to expose the crack of our asses while bopping to some ghetto rap, but oh' sorry...smoking isn't allowed???

Condoning the film industry's spending of billions of dollars in producing violent TV shows, movies and video games each year and in allowing your police forces to waste resources dressing up female cops as prostitutes just so they can arrest men for talking to them...this is sane? And isn't it acceptable behavior to browse the web in search of extremely disgusting and degenerate hardcore porn, but at the same time isn't it illegal to park your car in front of your own house? Is this another example of living the American dream? Why would any mildly sane person want to live in a country where they can be arrested for a friendly game of poker with their friends in their own home, but can legally walk into a billion dollar casino and lose everything they own in a matter of minutes. The same country where a person can go to prison for smoking marijuana, but can legally buy, consume and even overdose on prescription drugs. A land where in every poor neighborhood there's liquor and gun stores on every other corner and, of course, a church at the end of the block for immediate and convenient redemption.

Isn't America a country where self righteous men dignity their existence by going to church on Sunday, but then wouldn't hesitate to have sex with a 16 year old girl or in locking their families out of their bedrooms while masturbating to porn on the web. A nation where so-called macho males group together on the weekends to get plastered and scream like pathetic losers while watching a fucking football game. Are not these the same men that have no time to get involved with their kids or much less actually give a damn about the issues destroying their world. Isn't America also the land where fearful people believe that wrapping their house in plastic sheeting and duct tape will actually protect them from Anthrax? The same people never believing that the Anthrax used in the 2000 DC and Florida attack was traced back to a US Military Research Facility in Utah ..surprise ...surprise!!! You didn't really believe it was a terrorist attack did you? Naw...it was just good ole American politics and the beginning of a 8 year reign of insanity by Mr. George W Bush and his do anything for a paycheck...cronies. Where the question of the day might be...you want us to kill Bin Laden, Mr. President, but doesn't he work for the CIA? And then there's Bush's "Iraq's weapons of mass destruction" that was nothing more than weapons of America's mass hysteria!

Personally I don't classify rednecks, guns and hunting harmless animals and pickup trucks as part of any culture I would want to be associated. So is this the culture and lifestyle the terrorists are supposed to be jealous of and wish to destroy? Sadly and unfortunately, it is the lifestyle that the western countries wage war in spreading around the globe. Seeking to carbon copy themselves they are feverish in commercializing every section of the planet.

Personally I was raised and educated in nature, hiking, fishing, exploring, playing with my friends and dogs, swimming in the creeks, star gazing and just being a kid. When we did watch TV we tuned in to bloodless TV shows like Lost in Space, Gilligan's Island, Bewitched, the Andy Griffin show and so on. Today the kids cut their teeth on computer porn, sexual videos from MTV, violent shows of cops, forensics, murder, and mayhem, violent shootouts where guns and murder are glorified. Mothers feeding them junk food, while watching soaps that go on and on for generations. And let's not forget their music; disgusting black rap and hip-hop about whores, guns, murder and easy money and other ghetto crap blasting from stereos, Ipods, TV's and countless other gadgets. Think about it for a minute...being raised and living in the sick societies of America and western counties "just what the hell do you expect from the people, especially the kids? Living where honking the horn at someone can get you killed is definitely not where I want to live and especially not where I would want to raise my kids. A land where war is common, porn is accepted and where guns are legal, but prostituted sex between adults and smoking a cigarette are not?

America...the land of the free and the home of the brave, yeah, but only if their superiorly & overwhelmingly armed to the teeth with the latest high tech kill toys, so they can destroy at a distant. Why would any sane person want to live in a land that morns the death of one of their soldiers, but feels nothing for the thousands of innocent people killed in their wars. A country where so much of their resources are utilized enforcing traffic laws, while robbery, murder and mayhem are as common and frequent as an average family going on a vacation.

America's restrictive traffic laws are enforced with Nazi uniformed macho cops hiding behind every bush, tree and sign to pull drivers over for going 5 miles over the posted speed limit...even if it's in the middle of the Nevada desert with no one else in sight. They pretend to be concerned for your safety as they promptly issue you a $200 dollar citation. A good example of "taxation without representation." Heaven forbid if your not wearing your seat-beat when stopped, as that's another three hundred dollar fine. Oddly, having a loaded gun on your car seat is not an issue. It’s just one of thousands in America's warped concept of selective freedom.

As good ole boys, Americans believe it's quite normal to feel they have the right to shoot and kill another human being for whatever reason they believe is necessary, but at the same time panic when stopped by a cop for some minor traffic violation. I assume it's because they know traffic laws are much more strictly enforced as huge money revenue industries for the states. Isn't just a little odd that a murder conviction can be appealed a numerous amount of times, but rarely can a traffic citation be appealed, much less over turned?

So, if and when you're a visitor to the wild west culture of the USA be extra cautious if pulled over by a cop. Stay in your car, don't make any sudden movements and definitely keep your hands where the gun happy cop can see them, or he just might shoot you...a few dozen times. "Hey, it happens daily somewhere in the USA. And be sure to read the various bumper stickers on most Americans. Most are quite funny and some are insanely illogical...like, "God bless our troops in Iraq." My question is always, well if God is blessing their troops and Mohammad is blessing the Iraqis...then it's going to be a long war." Sadly,  the typical American has no clue where the fuck Iraq is located and most can't even spell the name of the country their destroying. Hey people...you've fallaciously declared war on those poor people...please...give a damn! 

Is this American lifestyle worth fighting and dying for? Are you wars and global policies worth the actual downfall of your country itself? Commercialism is the contributing factor to the demise of our very world and yet you, Americans, continue allowing your industries to push commercialism down the throats of  the world knowing full well it's malignant effects? Commercialism breeds nothing but a culture of bigotry, racial despise, self-hatred, impatience, intolerance, and the slaughter of wild animals, legally hunted to extinction? Cultures of self serving global policies, international malcontent, obesity, greed and just general insurrection, and lets not forget your all encompassing philosophy of "God loves me because I'm a white Christian" As they say in America's South, "Raise your feet...the bullshit's getting deep."

Isn't America the home of the armed high school dropouts wearing police and security badges? Degenerates with the absolute right to shoot and kill another human being for shop lifting some over-priced clothes at a boutique or for simply not obeying their commands quickly enough? This is the culture and lifestyle you're protecting? Is your interpretation of freedom mean having the right to carry concealed guns and them anytime you feel the circumstances are justified...or simply when someone just pisses you off? That's not freedom...its mayhem. The real meaning of freedom is having the right and obligation to keep your government in check...having the right to not roll up your fucking water hose, the right to sit on your porch or in the park and drink a beer or smoke a cigarette. The right to paint your house any color you desire without asking permission from the local government! Freedom is the right to walk you dog at 3:AM without fear of getting mugged or shot by a paranoid cop. Freedom is having the right to be gay or an Atheist without persecution. Do you in America have those simple rights? If I remember my history correctly...isn't escaping religious bigotry and micro-control of your everyday lives by self appointed masters just a few of the reasons your ancestors left England and other bigoted nations so long ago?

Bigotry is when the nation's people turn their back on the needy and pray that God will save them. When people whine about pollution while driving a gas guzzling SUV in allowing the giant oil companies to triple gas prices in three years, which tripled their profits. Bigotry is when you you make a big issue of Janet Jackson's nipple being partially exposed on TV, but do nothing to stop the endless flow of disgustingly demeaning porn sites. The same sites that your citizens masturbate to when alone on their computers! Is this acceptable behavior and is allowing your kids to watch grotesque movies of violence and then not make the connection when some maniac shoots dozens of kids in a university!!! Please get your heads out of your asses...you created the nightmare, so do something to end it! "Hell even sheep wouldn't follow a moron like Bush."

In Addition there were and are countless other US interventions not listed above;

George H. Bush threatens a military navy blockade and cancellation of previous IMF loans to Argentina if they did not sign an agreement allowing Enron to build a major pipeline through their country with little compensation. As of Jan 22 2002 Argentina's collapse was inevitable, as under such threats they had just swore in their fifth president in two weeks. The IMF, International Monetary Finance provides cheap loans, subsidized mostly by the U.S. government; in return, it dictates economic "advice" to the borrower. That advice is always the same. First, the IMF tells a country to increase its taxes in order to reduce budget deficits. The IMF always advocates higher taxes, never lower spending. Then the IMF suggests devaluing the nation's currency, a kind of one-shot hyperinflation that allegedly "stimulates" the economy and encourages exports. yes, cheaper exports, less worker earning and turns the country into a basic sweat shop for Western interests.

It was recommended that the first component of the suggested IMF economic program was to devalue the peso by another 40 percent. Bear in mind that 80 percent of Argentina's private and government debt is denominated in dollars, so borrowers would now have to pay many more pesos for every dollar they owe. Under this scheme, any Argentine business that had not already gone bankrupt surely would.

The IMF's prescriptions are as far from the free market as you can get: unchecked government spending, higher taxes and government-induced inflation.

The results in Argentina were predictable. Higher taxes sent the economy deeper into recession. Then, early last year, Domingo Cavallo, the architect of Argentina's stable currency system, made plans to demolish his work, proposing a thinly veiled devaluation that dropped the peso's value by 7 percent. Last fall, he began hinting that the peso was "overvalued" and needed to be brought down further.

Investors got the message: He was planning to make the peso worthless. They bailed out, everyone raised prices, and the economy went into a tailspin. The final result? The angry mobs of newly impoverished Argentines who rampaged in the streets in December. It's the same cycle we saw after the IMF gave advice in Russia and Southeast Asia. The final assessment is simple;, "Wherever the IMF goes, rubber bullets are sure to follow."

Argentina's refusal to agree to Enron's criminal proposal and in allowing the IMF to ruin their economy led to the Falklands war, which was a farce from the beginning. Just another example of America and Allies continued imperialism. The brief, but crippling war was never about the Falkland Islands. One good note; Enron soon collapsed, as they had based their profitability on the success of the gas pipeline through Argentina.

Pentagon chief escalates threats against Venezuela
26 March 2005

US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld used his brief three-nation tour of Latin America this week to step up US threats against Venezuela and pressure the region’s governments into joining Washington’s campaign to isolate the government of President Hugo Chavez.

“Propaganda war” to justify seizing oil

Rangel characterized the remarks by the Pentagon chief as a “propaganda war” that represented “a new phase in US imperialist aggression” aimed at “taking possession of our energy resources. A potential war against Venezuela is just one step in US global ambitions.”

*The US has been creating friction between Colombia and Venezuela, as well as beefing up Colombia's military since 2004 in order to stage a possible Venezuelan invasion.

March, 2005; Donald Rumsfeld arrived in Buenos Aires, Argentina just two days before the anniversary of the 1976 military coup that brought to power a dictatorship which murdered, tortured and “disappeared” tens of thousands of Argentines. Also during that period, Rumsfeld occupied the top post at the Pentagon and participated in formulating policies that aided and abetted the police-state repression.

Sept. 2009; The US and allies consistently threaten Iran with stronger and stronger sanctions and possible military intervention for not complying with IAEA regulations in regard to their work on nuclear enrichment.

USA's Crippling Global Debt.

BIG PICTURE - $66 TRILLION of DEBT in America, and rising hourly.

The USA economy is 2-3 times mor debt-dependent - with $36 Trillion DEBT EXCESS compared to prior debt ratios! As of July 2009 the USA has just spent another 5+ Trillion Dollars. Along with Billions of monthly compounded interest...DO THE MATH!

Here's one graphic of many shown in the main Total Debt Report, linked below.

This is A SCARY CHART - showing trends of total debt in America (the red line, reaching $57 trillion in 2008 vs. growth of the economy as measured by national income (blue line). (adjusted for inflation). That debt increased $3 Trillion in the past year.

Which line goes up faster, the red debt line or the blue net national income line? Answer: the debt line.

And, that debt line is 12 to 14 times faster than national income!

(Perhaps, like this chart, your own personal or business debt is also going up much faster than your income?)

As mentioned, debt is defined as all U.S. debt (sum debt of federal and state & local governments, international, and private debt, incl. households, business and financial sector debts, and federal debt to trust funds).

This chart shows, for the period 1957 to mid 1970s, total debt (red line on chart) was increasing close to the growth rate of national income (blue line on chart), despite war debt for WW II, Korea and Vietnam.

Who is selling out America? Ask Timothy F. Geithner, Secretary of the Treasury, and his cooperative big business cohorts on Wall Street, such as Citi Group, Goldman Sachs, Lehman Bros and companies like AIG, and so forth. Then do a little research in the USA past Treasury Secretaries, like Henry M. Paulson, Jr. and Ben Bernanke, and don't forget Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan. These men are but just the tip of a huge iceberg. Then check into their common ties & heritages along with the vast majority of our country's mega companies and even our FDIC & Treasury Departments! From banking, major news medias to Wall Street to Hollywood these groups are bleeding our country and leaving the middle class to pay the debt. Click on the below link to discover more about The British Insurance Group Willis Holdings. They are now the majority lease holder and are now changing the name of our country's icon, The Sears Tower; Click on the following link to learn more about this company and the CEO, Joseph J. Plumeri's close ties to several failed US Financial Groups; Willis-Holdings!  Isn't it also quite coincidental that Michael Chertoff is the new Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
