11110 Reasons Why The Federal Reserve Is The Greatest Fraud Of All Time

Mention the Federal Reserve (FED) and most people, including Americans, will think that you are talking about the financial arm of the US government.

They’d be very wrong though.

The ‘truth’, if such a concept is still alive in the era in which we live, is altogether different and, perhaps, somewhat more disconcerting.

Read more to find out how the Federal Reserve was created and how it may have cost a great President his life…

Several Progressive Ads That I Like

There have been a number of progressive ads out there that I kinda like. Here’s the short version of the Obama presidency so far. He tends toward evil but he’s not a completely relentless flood of darkness and blight. Or: a center right person is better than the republican right center out and out fascism persons that we had to choose from. There are some bright spots in his policies. He’s personally put several hundred dollars into my pocket as an unemployed person. So its hard to get my hatred up for him.

For me and in the long term there are three issues that he has to deliver on: health care, EFCA and carbon caps. If he delivers on health care, or manages to put 60 million Americans onto the path of health coverage, then I think he wins reelection quite easily. I say that because I would be one of those 60 million people who would receive health care. I’m making an assumption here that the public option will pass with teeth. If not, and I have to depend on my friendly neighborhood health care insurer then nothing really changes. If he doesn’t deliver on health care, then I agree with Howard Dean that Obama won’t be reelected and that Dems will start losing ground starting in the 2010 midterms. He can strike out on EFCA and carbon caps, but not healthcare. I really think he needs all three to secure the dem base.

There have been some great ads running on the Youtubes concerning the public option for healthcare. First up is Howard Dean:

You might have also seen those awful insurance industry ads featuring insurance lobby hack Rick Scott (Did you know that Canadians really really hate their health care system? Yeah neither did I. Check out this response from The Real News.). I won’t show those here. But here’s a great counter ad:

I also think that labor’s EFCA ads are stunning. They really hit home.


All change is not growth, as all movement is not forward. ~ Ellen Glasgow

I really couldn’t help but chuckle, listening to Weekend Edition, when Daniel Schorr declared that Obama had “disappointed progressives”. He cited the president’s re-deal of military tribunals. Heh. If that’s the only thing that’s upsetting the proggies, they’re still under the sedative-hypnotic spell of Oxybama, a drug that wipes memory, causes hallucinations, and distorts reality into some twisted remake of The Wizard of Oz. Sigh and sigh again . . .

Feminisnt > A Meddlesome Hussy Takes On the Enemies of Sexual Sanity

Welcome to my rantblog! I’m a pornographer, sex worker, atheist, and former “sex-positive feminist” who grew tired of trying to shoehorn my life into a feminist analysis. I have liberated myself from women’s liberation, and it feels glorious. I’m now sharing my observations as a politically-minded smut peddler, ethical slut, and staunch skeptic. I despise people who project their insecurities onto others, or force sex workers into only two roles: helpless victims and evil patriarchy-colluders. I love spicy food, vegan lip balm, and the word “pollywog”. [more]

The Great Imposition

It is for each of us to choose who we follow and what we believe at this point. If you see a bunch of drunks playing with fireworks, you have to decide if you’ve had enough beers to want to join them or whether there might not be some other way to occupy your time. ~ Les Visible, Smoking Mirrors

Those who ponder the concept of a “new world order” speak of it as a looming future event, as if the evil plotters will convene in a gloomy, cathedral-like room of an ancient castle, throw the Frankenstein switch, and awaken the gruesome monster to eat all except the drooling new Master.

The reality, of course, is that such an event will not take place. The reality is also that every day events, conversations, and actions take place that move us toward clashing centralizations and chaos, freedoms and incarcerations, progress and retrenchment, poverties and riches. The matrices and paradigms shift and melt and mingle and drift, each instance noted (or not) by the MSM and viral hysteria on Twitter and at PrisonPlanet.

Sadly, we shake our heads as we watch Alex Jones shrieking through his bull-horn at a fancy hotel, his entourage of thirty or so souls surveilled openly by twice that number of blue-jeaned security thugs. We gotcha, he wails. We will win! Heh. We’ve got ’em, all right – right where they want us . . .

Welcome to the United States of Bilderberg

This weekend, in an out of the way luxury hotel in Greece, some of the richest and most powerful people in the Western world are convening to decide the fate of that world. Among others, the US Secretary of the Treasury is in attendance, with one other so-far-unknown representative from our country, to receive instructions from these gods of empire and finance. On the outside, Alex Jones and some hangers-on are shouting righteous epithets through bull-horns from across the street. Alex is perspicacious, as always, but these folks are probably just mildly amused. “Sticks and stones”, they think. It’s going to be a nasty summer, global warming, global cooling, come what may.

Memorial Day is just around the corner. In the States we can use it to remember the death of the American Dream. By Labor Day, drained and exhausted from the summer, we’ll know how bad our asses are on fire. Remember, it’s not the heat; it’s the stupidity . . .

Quotable: George Carlin

“. . . this experiment, this magnificent experiment in democracy is just being shredded to pieces by these right-wing Christians, the Ashcroft branch of Republicanism. (They’re) just shredding the rest of the Bill of Rights which hadn’t been shredded already.”
