    How many “emergency” “secret” meetings do the central planners around the world need to have before the citizens of the respective countries begin to fully understand and take notice that something...

You guys are way too humane with the execution ideas.


Rectal impalement or upside down crucifixion maybe...


What I was thinking is more along these lines

Greenspan, Paulson, Rubin, Senator Gramn of TX, Summers and Mozilo deserve a military firing squad.  An additional 200 accomplices in the MSM, NY and DC should be doing very hard time in prison for 20 plus years.

The greatest country in the history of mankind has been stabbed in the back from within.  When this was done to the Germans they responded by electing Hitler.   By 2016, things are going to be so bad that an American version of Hitler could easily take power with the full support of the majority of Americans.

Folks, there won't be any mass organization.  Don't wait for some internet savior to come and rescue you.  Your friends and  neighbors will never understand, or be of any use even if they do.  Take care of yourself.

How?  Opt out of the consumerist sheep shearing, and save as much of your labor as you can.  Stop doing business with intra-state banksters.  Stop buying crap you don't need.  Stop believing TV commercials.  Just opt out.  You'll be preparing yourself for what's to come, and you'll be starving the beast.

If only a small percentage of us did that, they system would come crashing down.  Without a shot being fired.  Just quit playing their game.

If you mean a dictatorship will arise from the middle pleading for relief, I think the case can be made, at least from Soros' point of view.  I think this is a big part of the set-up

Josey Wales is one of the greatest movies of all time and a tour de force of great lines.

Wales:  "soon as I get to likin somebody, they ain't around too long,"

Wattie:  "I've noticed that soon as you get to dislikin somebody, they ain't around too long neither."

but the original article was total bullshit.  What these idiots who talk about marginal tax rates omit is that the numbers of deductions have been sliced down.  Those 90% rates weren't paid by anyone as all kinds of things were deductible from income back then.

This statement is 100% in earnest:

Reduce the Federal Budget by 30% across the board and the overwhelming majority, most likely as many as 85% of Americans (not including those who work directly for government or directly for companies where their job is the result of government funding), would  notice no decline in their standard of living.

Reduce state budgets by 30% across the board and the same thing as above holds true.

You could even reduced federal, state and local government budgets by 30% across the board, and limit reductions to Social Security Payments to 7% or less (by getting rid of the EPIC waste and fraud that exists in Medicare & Medicaid, not to mention DoD/Pentagon contracts).

To put the cherry on top, the country could go to a flat tax of around 12% to 17%, replacing the incredibly inefficient income tax as it now stands (with 60,000 pages of IRC bullshit), and living standards and the environment for almost all Americans and businesses would improve by a vast degree.

but instead what we get is shit like this that was just passed in Florida:

Florida to require drug testing for all welfare recipients

Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) signed legislation into law on Tuesday that requires anyone applying for temporary government assistance to pay for and undergo drug screening.

Under the new law, applicants for the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program who test positive for illegal drug use won't be eligible to receive benefits for one year or until they successfully complete a drug abuse program. Those who don't test positive will be reimbursed for the cost of the test.

Around 60,000 people would be affected, according to earlier reports.

Good. Those drug addicts don't need the tax money of working people to pay for their fix. Bunch of degenerates that went from begging mom for $20 from their room in the basement, to licking Uncle Sam's shaft for their dope funds. Fuck em.

But this does present an opportunity. A bottle with a temperature strip, two hand warmers, a rubber band, and some guaranteed clean pee..$50. Stand outside the dole hub and wait for the welfare queens.

So, did the banksters who received a $700 billion dollar welfare check from us have to have their pee tested?

Or are they free to do their lines of coke etc and drink champagne while pissing down on us?

Can you apply by leaving a turd on the Welfare Dept. front step? They could screen it for drugs and filet mignon. Be sure to leave your name on it, or maybe they could check your DNA records.

In theory, the flat tax makes economic sense ... but in practicality, it's a license to steal as much as the government wants.

It's actually one of the few places to get basic education at a reasonable price.

Yes, a lot of morons go there because they can't make it into the overpriced colleges, but that's not necessarily terrible since they are spared the accompanying debt-loads.

It's statewide.


Anyone who plans to move to Texas and thinks it is a low tax jurisdiction since it has no income tax, should note that paying 2%+ of appraised value on a residence per annum in combined city and school district ad valorem taxes is not unusual.  And if you have mineral rights and happen to live over the core Barnett Shale region, you might as well be doubly screwed if you have no active royalty or option income from it.

Well, they couldn't possibly allow you to actually own your property after all, and of course logic has it that you'd have no control over it or how the taxes on it are spent.  Government knows best, right?

Not all of us deserve what is coming.  There's a lot of blame to throw around, but I know a lot of folks who deserve what is coming FAR more than I.
