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.

Controversial Memorial Day toon by Mr. Fish. But probably not around here. You probably won’t be shocked by this toon, either. Or that one.
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]
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 . . .

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 . . .

I took a brief break from political limericks, just long enough to write a new song parody about the Pelosi / CIA brouhaha: The “We Did Nothing Wrong, & Nancy Should Have Stopped Us” Song.
