    12 19:35 When Will We March Against Obama?


    "Give Obama a chance." some of his less critical supporters say. "Do you think you're smarter than Obama?", some of the less polite ones ask. But those are not the real questions. The real question is how long it will be before the left wakes up and finds its own voice. Shut out of Obama's policymaking circles, there are few choices but to speak up. How long before more of us seek to unambiguously hold the new president and his record accountable? How long before protesters hit the street?
    Webmaster's Commentary:
    Within four months., and yes, as a matter of fact I do think I am smarter than Obama, at least in understanding that you don't fix an economy by taking money from the working class to give to the banks to loan back to the working class (at interest).
    I am smart enough to know that you cannot prosper a nation doing each others' laundry for a fee, and that wealth does not grow by shaking money back and forth with great vigor in that giant open-air casino called Wall Street.
    I am smart enough to know that the propaganda games that worked at the height of the cold war are failing miserably in the age of the internet.
    I am smart enough to know that Obama is not doing anything consistent with the long term improvement of the economy. He is patching things, going with the politically expedient quick fix, and that 6 months from now when the bailout is spent and the potholes in the roads are filled in those workers will be out of work again, still unable to pay their mortgages, still unable to pay their credit cards, and like the rest of of, some $30,000 deeper in debt each to the Federal Reserve for all these bailouts.
    I am smart enough to know that the fatal flaw in the debt-based Federal Reserve System is that the moment it went into operation more money is owed than is actually in existence. I am smart enough to know that when the Federal Reserve cannot find more and more people to pledge themselves to a loan in order to create new money that the pyramid will collapse as it collapsing now. I am smart enough to realize that each new bailout thus creates more interest debt, meaning that We The People owe the federal Reserve even more money that does not actually exist.
    I am smart enough to understand that the fastest way to fix the economy is to cut taxes so that we can pay our mortgages, ending the mortgage crisis, pay our credit cards, which ends the credit crisis, and shop for those goodies the retailers are screaming we are not buying enough of. I am smart enough to realize that we can afford massive tax cuts if we just lose our addiction to running around Planet Earth killing brown people, or handing billions of dollars in weapons to Israel so that they can kill brown people.
    I am smart enough to see all this.
    Why isn't Obama?

    Because Obama is a part of Slavery, Inc. -and his job is to continue the job that was started.

    It is not that we are too stupid in as much as most of this nation is in denial about our whole economic way of life (consumerism) is now on it's death bed.

    I lost my mother to cancer 20 years ago this coming May. She was the type that had a champagne taste and only a beer budget to support her champagne taste.

    After her diagnosis, she went into the stage of denial and stayed there till the end of her life. For the last year that she lived, she became a person that I never knew. Her spending went completely out of control with credit cards, a second mortage, and in a few cases, theft of cash from other family members and friends.

    What I am seeing with the "sheeple" now is the same exact thing I witnessed with my mother and the last year of her life, and belive me when I say that you will never be able to pry open thier mind to what is truly going on, and the only thing you can do is to sit back and watch.

    My word of advice is to keep prepping like there is no tommorow, and hope for the best, If and when this false economy falls flat on it's face, maybe there will be enough to become apart of this nations "Fourth Turnning".

    "I am smart enough to understand that the fastest way to fix the economy is to cut taxes so that we can pay our mortgages, ending the mortgage crisis, pay our credit cards, which ends the credit crisis, and shop for those goodies the retailers are screaming we are not buying enough of."

    I have to admit that cutting taxes is a nice gesture, and may even allow for some of the things said in the quote. However, I am smart enough to recognize that the expenses of the common weal will continue, thus will also continue to contribute to the debt load our children will face. Short of repudiating all debt and starting anew, I don't know anything that will work other than the sheep themselves embarking on a self imposed austerity program similar to what those of us on fixed incomes must follow. One thing seems certain to me; prolonging the agony such as the PTB are doing will simply make the end result worse. This whole scheme so resembles something Ponzi dreamed up that I almost puke thinking about it. The debt will not go away without reducing spending on personal, local, regional, state, and national levels. Debt service itself is more expensive than pay as you go, and the entitlement mind set is wiped out.

    As of late conversations with my son, has revealed he too thinks it has to be something in the water....
    We have noticed the lack of intelligence in the general population over the past 2 years, and it has increased dramatically.
    Now, I don't do conspiracies, so maybe it's in the media ?
    Dosen't really matter how, it's the what that sacres me....
    What happens next?
    It really is apparent that no one can see the forest anymore, as all the trees keep getting in their way!
    Yes, in all honesty, there is something WRONG....
    Kind of like being bred as a bunch of drones....
    Being "dumbed down" as it were....?

    It's the Flouride!!!

    Controversial fluoride is one of the basic ingredients in both PROZAC
    (FLUoxetene Hydrochloride) and Sarin nerve gas (Isopropyl-Methyl-Phosphoryl

    Sodium fluoride, a hazardous-waste by-product from the manufacture of
    aluminum, is a common ingredient in rat and cockroach poisons, anesthetics,
    hypnotics, psychiatric drugs, and military nerve gas. It`s historically
    been quite expensive to properly dispose of, until some aluminum industries
    with an overabundance of the stuff sold the public on the terrifically
    insane but highly profitable idea of buying it at a 20,000% markup,
    injecting it into our water supplies, and then DRINKING it.

    Yes, a 20,000% markup: Fluoride-- intended only for human consumption by
    people under 14 years of age--is injected into our drinking water supply at
    approx. 1 part-per-million (ppm), but since we only drink 1/2 of one
    percent of the total water supply, the rest literally goes down the drain
    as a free hazardous-waste disposal for the chemical industry, where we PAY
    them so that we can flush their expensive hazardous waste down our toilets.
    How many salesmen dream of such a deal? (Follow the money.)

    Independent scientific evidence repeatedly showing up over the past 50
    years reveals that fluoride allegedly shortens our life span, promotes
    cancer and various mental disturbances, accelerates osteoporosis and broken
    hips in old folks, and makes us stupid, docile, and subservient,
    all in one
    package. There are reports of aluminum in the brain possibly being a
    causative factor in Alzheimer`s Disease, and evidence points towards
    fluoride`s strong affinity for aluminum and also its ability to "trick" the
    blood-brain barrier by looking like the hydrogen ion, and thus allowing
    chemical access to brain tissue.

    The first occurrence of fluoridated drinking water on Earth was found in
    Germany`s Nazi prison camps. The Gestapo had little concern about
    fluoride`s supposed effect on children`s teeth; their alleged reason for
    mass-medicating water with sodium fluoride was to sterilize humans and
    force the people in their concentration camps into calm submission
    . (Ref.
    book: "The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben" by Joseph Borkin.)

    "Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce
    an individual`s power to resist domination, by slowly poisoning and
    narcotizing a certain area of the brain, thus making him submissive to the
    will of those who wish to govern him. [A convenient light lobotomy]

    "The real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children`s
    teeth. If this were the real reason there are many ways in which it could
    be done that are much easier, cheaper, and far more effective. The real
    purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses
    to domination and control and loss of liberty.

    That explains why you are not supposed to swallow, when you use a toothpaste that contains fluorides!
    (unless it's the Chinese brand, that contains ethylene glycol/antifreeze!)
    That'll fix your wagon too!

    I dont know if you all know this Fluoride is also found naturally in ground water higher doses in some areas than others.
    Seen community's with grayish teeth? thats from natural fluoride in the water supply.
    Out west here none uses in the water supply that I know, My Father inlaw does water tests for several counties here,.

    In Az. it's not the fluoride that bothers's the alkalinity of the water, as it has killed a lot of my raised bed gardens, when the soil turned white as snow!
    That coupled with the excess' of chlorine in the city water, is very nasty!

    Makes one wonder why they're cracking down on personal water wells.[lolol]

    In some places, they are. A lot of municipalities force you to destroy the well once you hook onto City Water. Official story is 'to prevent cross-contamination of water'.
    Really of course, they want us dependent on 'The System'. :rolleyes:

    I agree with most of this but one slight problem:

    "I am smart enough to realize that we can afford massive tax cuts if we just lose our addiction to running around Planet Earth killing brown people, or handing billions of dollars in weapons to Israel so that they can kill brown people."

    It's not that simple folks. We Americans depend on oil so much that if our supply is out of whack our economy will crumble, real fast! You really need to understand our addiction to oil and it's impact on our society/economy. Once we are self sufficient I am all for saying **** the middle east.

    About those wells...
    Back in the 80's the city of Phoenix, "secured" 7 out of 9 wells in the "Sunburst Farms" irrigation district! I was there as foreman to run the irrigation schedules and wondered what had happened....I saw the wells that were capped off, and was told how, when, and where, but never the why!
    They are deep wells and the water is warm and sweet!
    There was a "reason", but according to the "Gilbert Pump" people, the water levels in the "aquifer" had not dropped even 2 inches in the past 40 years....
    And, there are thousands of wells connected to that aquifer!
