Americans are a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue. These mules clearly fit in one of Leo Strauss'(*) categories of society: the Vulgar Many

"The vulgar many, are lovers of wealth and pleasure. They are selfish, slothful, and indolent. They can be inspired to rise above their brutish existence only by fear of impending death or catastrophe."

The sooner the US economy collapses, the better, so these brutes will finally learn NOT to live beyond their means.

* German Philosopher (1899-1973)

yea but how do you deal with planning the next system? if you don't plan it, then it is destined repeat the precise same mistakes that lead us to the current corrupt system.and there is the risk that the next stage of the u.s. sees us owned by a mafia like conglomorate far more exclusively oligarchic than anything we've been used to for the last fifty years. 


take note, a significant number of russians long for the good old days of communism. putinism, while different, was no great triumph and has led many people into a worse life than before. 


different, does not mean better. how do you make it better?if you have no plan to do that, you are just advocating more change, which inevitably, results in things staying the same.

So we need to keep business small and localised? In other words we need a factory in everyones backyard? Ok Mao, I'll get the Red Guards working on it...


Actually what you are saying makes no sense, you cannot put a leash on a persons entrepreneurial spirit and drive and still have political power remain small. Even if you could it would be to the detriment off all as you're giving away the opportunity to benefit from division of labor.


Unlike governments a corporation has never forced someone to use it's services nor has it the power to enslave someone or wage war... most problems they cause are due to government (eg historical Wall Street bailouts and access to money with distorted time preferences and opportunity costs which created a moral hazard causing the GFC). Government is the only thing we need to keep decentralised or non existant.

. . .Monsanto, Raytheon, GE, Xe & all its obfuscating psuedonyms spring immediately to mind, not to mention the banking corporations. . . also historically the East India Company setting the precedent.

and while I understand your noting that "government causes the problems" - most who do the "governing" are in paid service to those corporations, at this point in time it's really a chicken / egg conundrum.

getting rid of "government" will solve nothing unless you kill the corporations that steer it with fiat & promises of power.

East India Company was essentially a government arm, it was the archetypal mercantilist organisation, it's monopoly was enforced by military action and 19th century contra smuggling (Opium Wars). It was a creation of the ideas of bullionism and mercantilism some moron bureaucrats and thier paids for economists like Adam Smith dreamed up. Raytheon, GE, Xe etc.. all of them are contracted by a government, it defies all logic for a free market to demand the deadly goods and services these companies offer.


Yes as it stands those governing are in paid service to corporations but this is solely a fault of government. Without government not even a businessman as evil as Dr Evil or Mr Burns could force someone to use their deadly services.



edit: I didn't junk you either. And we don't need to kill corporations like GE, Xe, Monsanto, BAC, JPM, GS etc... if we could get rid of government and the anti competitive aspects it creates that allow for these mega congolmerates (IP, fiat money, crony contracts) they'll soon shrink back to size.

1) German banks own Greek debt, so Greek debt = German risk.

2) many Americans (ie. Paris Hilton) have German ancestry, so what happened to industrious German culture?

3) Germany has tons of debt too. 19th in the world in 2010 with 80% debt-to-GDP ratio.

4) Why didn't Germans live within their means in early 20th century and instead invade rest of Europe....twice?

Instead begin massacre of ethnic Germans. Hitler invades, Germany then backstabbed by Brits. How dare those beastly Huns fight back!!

you're conflating "the vulgar many" with the vulgar few.  

the "vulgar many" are as yet unawakened to reality and do not deserve your other accolades.

it is the vulgar few who better fit the slothful definition.  

"live beyond their means" is the predator's distraction and cover story.

Hey, wank did not say that dummy junkers. And that was so many decades ago.

Bob Chapman explains the Dodd-Frank law and its effects on Gold & Silver Bullion over the counter

Bob Chapman goes once again to explain the Dodd-Frank law and its implications on the average Gold & silver coins bullion or shares buyers , the story was first put out by Zerohedge and obviously either intentionally or not was taken way out of contest , many were led to believe that "trading over the counter gold and silver will become illegal starting July 15" this is one of the most distorted stories says Bob Chapman , what is banned under the Dodd-Frank is the ability of the American corporations to trade in Forex in Foreign exchange in Gold and Silver you can no longer do so it is a very very small segment of the market it attracts big time speculators people who want real high leverage and a few average people by in large it is a pro market secondly it has absolutely nothing to do with gold and silver coins bullion or shares, there is nothing in that law that has or says anything pertaining to gold and silver coins bullion or shares PERIOD......

I think we need a governmental budgeting process which actually budgets. Not one designed to overspend by bundling up these enormous bills and then tacking on enough extra porkbarrel spend to get them passed. Thus serving to create large amounts of public debt.

 I propose spending bills be broken into their various "line items" and have every legislator assign a percentage value to each item. Then reassemble them in order of preference and the president draws the line at what can be afforded.

 As there would be a smaller constituency for those items near the line, than those being asked to pay for them, the inclination to overspend would be reduced.

 This would seriously reduce federal spending on local projects, but if we had a local community banking system, that spent the profits generated by the local community, back into local needs, rather than send those profits to New York in order that they be lent to Washington, this problem would be organically resolved.

I hate to disagree with you since your ideas would actually work if we ignored human nature. The solution is not better legislators, but less powerful ones. If the government, at all levels, was limited to protecting citizens from physical violence and settling contractual disputes, it wouldn't matter much who got elected. Their influence would be so limited that even Barney Fife could handle the job. Kind of like putting the new guy in charge of the staples. Even if they fuck up, there is no actual damage done.

By the way everyone, the founders specified gold and silver as money in America.

That doesn't mean gold / silver backed paper currency, so forget the idea of a gold backed currency.

The founders wanted no paper currency PERIOD.

Also, they specified gold and silver coin without saying it has to be minted by the US government.

That means any gold and silver coin from anywhere, from any nation, is acceptable in America.

I get your sentiment, and you are correct in referring to the coinage act- but I would research colonial scrip before you make the the statement you did above.

Here's an idea...lets do a national stock take of the debt outstanding, figure out what we can afford zero (hedge) based budgeting and do a system reset. A couple of things, one would be that every loan to anyone in the private sector has to be audited and a template/checklist that proves the ability to pay the loan today, anything else, must by definition be an odious loan and is therefore criminal. The original loan documentation, with all those involved goes to trial for potential extortion, corruption and racketeering. Now, what we will need is a department that is bigger than social security and we will need to declare a hiatus while we appoint 3 million people to do the work. You know, somewhat less than the size of the pentagon and the armed forces.

There will be a big problem with Federal employees of course (like the CIA) and they have guns and all their pensions are invested in worthless Treasuries with no hope of receiving any value whatsoever.

So we will probably have to do the same thing that should have been done after Iraq had been defeated, namely, disarm everyone. 

Well it's a solution of sorts. Happy to sign on to your declaration though William

Willb7... You should start by putting 7 point stars on the flag... 5 point are pentagrams of the Freemasons... and we all know what idiot 33rd degree masons run the country...

Then another group of Kabbalists own the 6 point star...

Symbolism is everything to these ritualistic morons... Just make the stars middle fingers...

Sun, 07/03/2011 - 03:41 | 1422253 Prometheus418

If you must talk about symbolism, get it right, and identify the actors correctly.

A seven pointed star represents either the A.'.A.'. or the qaabalistic representation of the seven holy planets (those located below the veil of the abyss on the tree of life.)  It is also promenently featured on the Sigilum del Ameth used by Dr. John Dee in the Enochian (Angellic) system.

Five pointed stars represent the four traditional elements plus spirit.  When upright, they represent Theurgia, when inverted, Goetia.  Five points is also indicative of microcosmic (internal) cause and effect.  Anything involving a pentagram affects only the person that drew it, and indicates either a draw to the person or an expulsion from a person based on the starting point of the star and it's direction (doesil=clockwise=invoking, widdershins=counterclockwise=banishing)

Six pointed stars represent the macrocosm (outside the self, the rest of the world) and are made up of two triangles- the ascending fire of prayer and the descending toungue of grace.  The Star of David is the hexagram of fire- the other three hexagrams are not in th form of stars- One is an hourglass, one is a diamond, and one is made from two upward-facing triangles that overlap.

All of these things have meanings, and are clearly defined and immutable in context.  The Freemasons emphatically DO NOT use a pentagram as a symbol- this is used by a secondary body comprised of the wives and daughters of Masons known as the Eastern Star. 

Lots of ellipsises do not make you knowledgeable- I had to pass tests on this shit while being physically and mentally tortured, and every detail had to be letter perfect.  It took years of digging in the trenches, and I am sick and tired of you tinfoil hat wannabes thinking you know something because you read a stupid website that included a bunch of crap about the Chupacabra and Bigfoot along with other senseless speculation.  I, along with hundreds of others, have been entering entire books and releasing them on the web for decades so that you can do your own due dilligence if you ever decide to actually understand rather than post incomplete paranoid one-liners on comment boards.

The western occult tradition is an established and definable set of systems that you can learn and understand.  If you do not wish to engage it, that is fine- but your intellectual laziness does not qualify you to comment on it.  The price of participation is your open mind and willingness to do the work- if that is not to your liking, close your mouth and stick to those subjects you *do* understand.

I've said it before, and I'll keep saying it until it sinks through your neanderthal skull- there are conspiracies in the world, but for every one that is trying to enslave you, there is another that is trying to set you free.  The Freemasons are not your enemies.  Nor are the Ordo Templii Orientiis, the Aurum Solis, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the Temple of Set, the Ecclesiae Gnosticae Catholicae, the A.'.A.'., the Elusian schools, the Star and Garter or Wicca.  All of these are on your f'ing side, so stop bashing them.

Point your middle finger where it belongs.

"Advisorship" as a replacement for "governance" (includes subentities having full control over funds):

Sat, 07/02/2011 - 16:48 | 1421557 PulauHantu29

from MarketWatch:


Again, there are two paths:

  • Drugs that mask the symptoms (throwing trillions of dollars at the problem), which triggered a spate of unintended consequences (such as outsized bank profits) and lead to a tricky trifecta of societal acrimony (over the likes of Goldman Sachs and BP), social unrest (from Greece to Libya), and geopolitical conflict (yet to be determined).

  • Medicine that cures the disease (debt destruction and reorganization) will be a bitter pill to swallow. But once we traverse that process, it’ll pave the way to a legitimate outside-in globalization (the US won’t lead, but will participate). This, in my view, is where the market was heading before the synthetic stimuli, and it’s where the market will ultimately go whether we like it or not. The question, of course, is,“From where?”

Market Watch is primarily valuable for the comments section.  But they made some changes and it has lost some value.  You can get most of what you'd get from the Market Watch comments by simply watching the Zero Hedge headlines these days.

You're kidding, right?

Voting is the preferred method of exercising Diebold vote flipping and count totals adjustment software. Nothing more.

Throw the bums into the lava pits. But keep the heads. They make fine decorative illustrations to any remaining psychopaths who might think of inserting themselves into the freshly vacated positions of power.

Voting in a purely representative democracy is pointless. People only vote for politicians, not for policies, and politicians can do whatever they want, whatever they claim, without being affected by any consequences.

Because of this, people also are NOT directly responsible for national debt. The only thing they are responsible for, is to have voted at all, and not having abolished the system. People are only directly responsible for debt, if they actually have a choice in it, like for example in the system i posted a few posts up ( ), because there people can actually veto policies on spending, taxation, laws and obligations.
