Is that the same Kafka who wrote "The Metamorphosis" ?

This could explain the strange back hair.

"that virtually no American has any control over, except for a few bankers and a few religious fundamentalists"

What religious fundamentalists would that be?  Oh, I know these:

this video was prouduced by national inflation association.  I have seen some blog sites label them a scammers running pump and dump schemes. anyone have any thoughts or comments?

anyone have any thoughts or comments

 

I do. Where is the evidence that the NIA is pumping and dumping, and WHO is making those accusations? Is the NIA guilty until proven innocent?

NIA Stock Suggestion June 15th: PDO 

Their profile for PDO is down but they were claiming some serious revenue and cash flow. The order flow that day was rather odd and the crash was not orderly as sellers were taking whatever they could get. 

 

Unfortunately charlatans will always take a good message and use it for their own advantage but as the saying goes...live by the sword, die by the sword.

shoot the messenger? NIA is educating the public to reality and allowing a few of us who dont watch tv to prepare.

Thank you NIA.  And if you lost or won money in the fedlottomarket, FU, you should not be trading with the enemy.

Life is short, too short to live with our heads held down. Man up folks, restore personal honor in your own lives. As a cumulative effect it would sure help.

"NIA is educating the public to reality"

Reality? They didn't mention once in the video why the g'ment might want to shut down milk producers who don't pasteurize. Um, because Pasteurization prevents disease. Some of the diseases that pasteurization can prevent are diphtheria, salmonellosis, strep throat, scarlet fever, listeriosis, brucellosis and typhoid fever. I'm glad the government has the Patriot Act becase they can protect me from wackos like the NIA.

NIA is an elaborate Pump and Dump scheme. I gullibly signed up a this past spring and then got inundated with penny stocks ideas. Hhhmmm, I cancelled my account. A fool and his money are soon parted.

And why do you need a Government Patriot Act to protect you from wackos like the NIA?

Are you glad you have the Gubernment protecting you from Banksters too?

"Are you glad you have the Gubernment protecting you from Banksters too?"

Good point. My problem is with everybody. Nobody gets it, NIA, The Tea Party, our Government. From my vantage point both sides of the aisle are way off target.

A little less protection, PLEASE. Whose business is it what kind of milk I buy if you have informed me of the risks--greater fear of disease on one side, significant loss of nutrition on the other?

DarkMath's picture

"significant loss of nutrition on the other?"

Really, pasteurizing milk causes a significant loss of nutrition? I doubt that. The risk of some organic farmer getting a lot of people sick is what the g'ment is trying to avoid. American's aren't lacking in nutrition.

The big picture here is that the Tea Party has been hijacked by wack jobs. If it's not Karl Rove and the AstroTurf movement, it's pump and dumpers like NIA. Of course there's the God, Guns and Gays crowd waiting in the wings.

America is so fucked that even the groups that are supposed to save it are fucked in the head. That's how fucked we are. It's all over except for the cryin'.

If Sarah Palin becomes the next president I'm moving to Australia.

 

Meatier Shower's picture

Good luck with that.

Unlike the USA, Australia has strict standards on who they allow to immigrate - and they actually enforce them.

Also, the IRS will be looking to collect their cut of your assets as you look to expatriate them.

Don't forget the KY jelly............

BigJim's picture

There wouldn't be much point. Australia is run by lunatics as well.

Saxxon's picture

Don't look for someone 'bigger' than you to get it. You are on your own.

DM, when you pasture raise these animals, as many of the raw milk producers do, the diseases you mention just aren't an issue. Only when the animals are raised in CAFO's, kept in their own filth, are these diseases an issue. A pasture or forest fed animal is an entirely different beast...

FDA and their boogeymen. It's just amazing humans have made it this far along without tech.

Thanks for the comment, Hulk.  People foget to peel back the layers.  Superficial observations produce superficial solutions.  Or, as Eric Sevareid said “The chief cause of problems is solutions.”  E-coli outbreaks are the consequence of "govt protection" of big business: once power is concentrated it turns around and wipes away restrictions on it (first kills competition/diversity, then tosses off regulation); always amazes me how many people just cannot get this!

DaveyJones's picture

Well said. Most of the modern diseases are traced back to our modern "domestication." Mad Cow being only one of the latest

Absolutely.

Also if you need a documentary flashing NIAs site every other minute to "enlighten" you, well...never mind.

Their piece on here is loaded up on propaganda. Inflation stealing from the (US) middle class. Propaganda marked.

Inflation touches every class. The least touched is the higher class and the more touched is the lowest class.

The USD is world reserve currency. They are more poors outside the US than within the US. The US is stealing from the rest of the world through the USD (to be transferred to anyone in the US, especially middle class)

That is closer to reality than their NIA scam.

"The US is stealing from the rest of the world through the USD"  Yup!  Spreading that "American Dream!"

"We are slaves in a criminal monetary system, where the Federal Reserve steals from the middle class through inflation and transfers this wealth to their banker friends on Wall Street."

IMO its not that subtle.  The stealing and lies are blatant from almost all our so-called leaders.  Its not just inflation - its lying about everything and the MSM is the main facilitator

Chicken nuggets Bitches !!!

Big Red's picture

Man, I can no longer stand factory food. Take KFC, without the spices in the skin, where's the taste in the meat? And if you buy a turkey for Thanksgiving, how can anyone stand that terrible smell from the oven, if it's a factory bird?

Hell, just driving by CAFO's is bad enough. But like good old Earl Butz (former Sec of Ag long ago) told the farming community back in the day, "Get big or get out". I want to see all subsidies die out over a 2 year period.

(At least, today, in my neck of the country, you can find the small guy doing good meat and vegetables. )

BigJim's picture

Yes... if you ever smell KFC chicken, it literally smells like shit.

God alone knows what they feed those poor creatures with.

Id like to suggest that Zero Hedge put together a "contest" on who can write the best "Manifesto", and that that Manifesto be kept permanently available by a front page link. At some point, somebody with some nuts, or even a crackpot who wanders onto the site can use it for whatever they have in mind:) Remeber that idiot who flew his cessna into the IRS building in Austin. What a wasted chance! He could've done so much better, especially considering he was suicidal anyway. Ah...missed chances to fire the masses.

Dapper Dan's picture

I assure you he was no idiot.  But his violent act was of no help to the cause.

 Only a moron would want to exact revenge on the IRS or the federal government. Get out there and ROCK THE VOTE!

High Plains Drifter's picture

The man had balls the size of grapefruits to do such a thing but committing suicide like that does not help anyone especially him or his family. Will there ever be American suicide bombers? I don't know. Maybe.  This sort of discussion scares the pants off of Homeland Insecurity.

Tsukato's picture

American suicide bombers!? Oh shit! Just like them crazy A-rabs! Wish GW Bush would've sent them all to hell for what they did to us on 9-11. GOD DAMN THEM TO HELL!
