Should We Kill The Politicians Before They Kill Us?

“The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.” William Shakespeare, Henry the Sixth

That was four hundred years ago, long before lawyers would come to hold most elected offices. 41% of the current congress are lawyers, six times the rate of the general population. The greatest concentration of lawyers is in Washington, D.C., and that is turning out to be a very bad thing.

This could well be the most sinister article I have ever written. We are sitting ducks. Easy prey. We are naive and easy to manipulate.

Groggy and sloggy on high fructose corn syrup. Corpulent and congested by pink slime beef and other toxins marketed as food, we ain’t gonna put up much of a fight.

Even if we could, they are ready and waiting for us. With their LRAD noise cannons, drones, armored vehicles, chemical weapons, Active Denial Systems and all of the right stuff to start offing citizens in large numbers.

To illustrate, I found this in Top 10 Future Law Enforcement Technologies by Amy Miller. As you read this, remember that this was three years ago.

“Has a chicken breast ever gone into a microwave oven without an absolute massacre being the end result? The ADS system (Active Denial System) aims to do the same thing to pesky rioters, high risk threats, and otherwise heavily shielded and protected targets.

High frequency targeted microwaves are projected at an offender sparking a reaction in the water carrying molecules and fatty tissues, causing the target to heat up from the inside out. Immediately, the target is unable to continue in the same fashion as before, they are in immense pain, and too uncomfortable to continue as a threat. It provides a biological reaction in the body, incapacitating the target and rendering them effectively useless for a longer period of time than other non-lethal methods.”

Non-lethal? Maybe, but the first degree burns it produces make it the modern day equivalent of pouring burning oil on them. Does hell have a special place for people who think this stuff up? A chicken breast in a microwave? That’s all we are to them.

I guess the Occupy movement is cooked.

But wait, there’s more…..

Homeland Security just bought 450 million rounds of .40 caliber ammunition. That is not a typo—450 million rounds. That is enough to shoot every American 1.5 times. These, we are told, are to protect us from a very large, well organized threat for which no plausible evidence exists.

Further, due to the destructive force of the expansion of the bullet, hollow-points are prohibited in international warfare, so they can only be used on us.

There are just us and them…and a few Middle Eastern crazies, straight from central casting, that they trot out from time to time to try to make us believe that all of this is for our own good.

The truth is that the only well-armed organized terrorists preparing to come into our communities will be sent by our politicians. If this is how they plan to handle unemployment and poverty domestically, it is hard to envision a time when any sort of even modest global accord could be achieved. Peace on earth? Yeah, good luck with that.

Meanwhile, they’ve been fine tuning the Constitution more to their liking by eliminating the first, fourth, fifth, and fourteenth amendments with the argument that times have changed and surely our founding fathers would want us to bring this quaint, pre-terrorism list of suggestions up to date.

I think that the only thing our founding fathers might have wanted is for us to have fought harder. Now it might be too late.

On New Year’s Eve, while nobody was looking, the president signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act, which for the first time in American history, makes legal the practice of apprehending and detaining, without writ or warrant, any American citizen, indefinitely, without trial.

It is based on a relatively new concept in law that all that is needed is the mere suspicion that an individual is thinking about breaking the law in order to arrest and detain them. I recently heard a government official defend it by asking the rhetorical question, “Well, if we think a crime is about to be committed, you would want us to prevent it?”

Never mind the Constitution, the presumption of innocence, or the right to due process.

As more and more Americans are discovering, if you try to stand up against the system in even a civil matter, you can wind up being jailed.

Except for a handful of brave judges, the vast majority of the judiciary has sold out. They, too, go on to great paying jobs with the law firms they favor in their rulings.

So, if one of those 450 million DHS hollow points doesn’t find you, than you might be one of those intended for a FEMA camp or a jail cell.

Meet the prison industrial complex; possibly the greatest single benefactor of our trumped up war of terror. Just ask Wells Fargo, a major investor. They know a sure thing when they see it.

Politicians keep telling us that crime is down, so who are they putting in all these prisons?

In 1980, there were two hundred and twenty people incarcerated for every hundred thousand Americans; by 2010, the number had more than tripled, to seven hundred and thirty-one. No other country even approaches that. In the past two decades, the money that states spend on prisons has risen at six times the rate of spending on higher education.

Remember the old saying, “You get what you pay for”? The education a child gets determines their fate. If we spend way more on prisons than we do on education, the results are predictable and the results speak for themselves. We are “Prison Nation”.

The US has 5% of the world’s population and 25% of the worlds incarcerated. Either we are some seriously bad-ass, mother-fuckers or something is very, very wrong. Ironically, the US also has 66% of the world’s lawyers serving 5% of the world’s population. I’m not sure what that suggests.

The prison business approaches a community desperate for jobs and commerce, and offers to build and operate a prison with local resources; but, there’s just one little catch—the community has to keep the prison full.

Recently, Corrections Corporation of America offered to buy and operate existing state prisons. Their offer requires the states to guarantee 90 percent occupancy.

Now, anyone and everyone is a potential customer for the local gray bar motel.

Within the last year, four different people I know were arrested and jailed while appearing in court on civil matters—not criminal, but civil.

Last year 40,000 new laws were passed in the US. Can you list them all? See how ridiculous it is becoming? That’s what you get when you have two thirds of the world’s lawyers.

FEMA camps, for real or paranoid lunatic nonsense?

All that I can verify is that the “emergency camps” have been put out to contractors for bid.

On February 24, 2012, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) posted the final draft solicitation for what they are calling a National Responder Support Camp (NRSC).

You can read it for yourself. My general impression is that particulars of the camps, as defined in the request for bid, are intended to have two separate groups residing at the camps for a long period of time. Ten percent of the group will live in additional secured quarters and receive better amenities than the other ninety percent of residents.

That scenario would suggest more of a prison environment than a short-term aid facility operated by members of the community. The camps would need to be operational in 72 hours. Though the request for bids suggest staffing with local labor, it concedes that under such short notice, local residents might not be able to respond so staff would be brought from other areas. They’ll be the ones in the crisp, brown shirts.

The locations of the camps have already been picked. Awesome! It appears that our ever forward-looking leaders already know where the next big disasters will be. Comforting, very comforting.

Meanwhile, a devastating disaster is already upon us and no one is responding to that.

For people who lost their homes to crooked banking schemes or a natural disaster, the result is the same.

This, despite the fact we spend a fortune on Governments who do little more than act as a conduit for the syphoning off of middle class prosperity.

They submit a budget, and then they overspend it.

Given unrestricted ability to do whatever they want without any interference from citizens or fiscal restraints you would think they must be doing a great job for us, but exactly the opposite is the case.

They suck. They are absolutely terrible at what they do. There must be a requirement to work in the government that you have absolutely no common sense whatsoever.

Take a look.

In the years since 9/11, we have learned that the attacks might have been prevented if US “intelligence” agencies had shared information.

Experts had issued urgent warnings about the levees protecting New Orleans years before Katrina.

The very name Katrina has become synonomous with “cluster-fuck”, because of the incompetence of FEMA’s response, and the fact that little has improved in New Orleans since.

The occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan have been grim reminders of why we should not go to war.

Marked by general implementation failures by U.S. agencies and evidence of massive corruption, Iraq and Afghanistan will be this generations Vietnam, right down to the lingering social costs including drug abuse and homelessness.

Military procurement systems are, according to retired military leaders, so broken that they now jeopardize national security. According to them, the U.S. is buying armaments that are overpriced, unneeded, and technically defective.

What about the economy? How has lowering taxes and eliminating or failing to enforce regulations benefited the economy? Well, the rich got way richer and the middle class got wiped out.

Let’s take a moment to evaluate and grade the performance of some important agencies.

  1. 1. The Government Services Administration, GSA

Since they are currently in the news, I thought why not start with them. The GSA is an important agency because it is the procurement arm for the entire Federal Government except the military. They buy stuff; lots of stuff. Everything you could imagine and some stuff you couldn’t.

Obviously, there is a potential for relationships to develop between vendors and buyers. Budda-bing, budda-bang, budda-boom, if you get my drift.

Why, heck, if you didn’t have the right people in this agency they could be buying $900 toilet seats, taking kickbacks, and wasting the tax payer’s money on themselves in a manor so lavish and arrogant that it would create corruption in all directions.

So, when news surfaced of the GSAs Caligula like event in Vegas, it struck me as rather ironic that these are the people responsible for booking all government travel, so this goes to the very core of what they do.

GSA Grade: F

  1. 2. The Food and Drug Administration, FDA

When it comes to public health and safety, no agency is more vital than the agency responsible for protecting Americans from the potential dangers of bad drugs and poisonous food. Everyone eats food, and in this country, almost everyone takes prescribed medication.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that contaminated food products are so common that Americans suffer 76 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations, and 5000 deaths every year. That frightening number means that one of every four Americans will suffer a food-related illness in the next 12 months.

Do not put that in your mouth. Salmonella in the sushi, E-coli in the chicken, pink slime beef.

The agency did not require any testing of Genetically Modified Organisms GMOs before approving their sale to the American public.

Irradiation is now a common method of extending shelf-life. It destroys a large proportion of the nutrients in food, a problem that is compounded as food sits out its increased shelf-life. Cooking escalates the problem further still. The end result is empty-calorie food that could actually increase nutritional deficiencies. No wonder everybody is fat and hungry.

So much for the food, what about the drugs?

Vioxx, Bextra, Baycol, Zellnorm and 27 other drugs have been withdrawn since 1980 due to serious, often fatal side effects.

The abuse of prescription medication is America’s largest and among the most costly of our health problems.

FDA Grade: FF

  1. 3. The Environmental Protection Agency, EPA

Don’t drink the water and don’t breathe the air. The medications are now showing up in ever increasing quantities in our drinking water.

On April 8th, the EPA rejected a petition to ban the sale of the 2,4-D pesticide, a major ingredient in the Vietnam-era defoliant 'Agent Orange'. Dow Chemical, is hoping to receive approval to sell genetically modified corn seeds that will dramatically increase the usage of 2,4-D.

In defending its decision, the EPA pointed to a study conducted by Dow. That’s good enough for me.

The Center for Food Safety said this, "This novel corn will foster resistant weeds that require more toxic pesticides to kill, followed by more resistance and more pesticides - a chemical arms race in which the only winners are pesticide/biotechnology firms."

So who is right? We need look no further than Monsanto’s GMO corn which is experiencing massive crop failures and developing mutated and resistant insects as a result of its widespread usage. Innocuous as this may seem, it is irrefutable evidence of the potential for worldwide crop failure if we keep tinkering with Mother Nature.

Meanwhile the FDA has become the primary foe of organic growers and natural food co-ops.

And, you were worried about Al Qaeda.

EPA Grade: FFF

  1. 4. Agencies Policing the Financial Services Industry

There are a host of agencies policing the financial services industry including, but not limited to, the SEC, the OCC, the FTC, the IRS, the FBI and the DOJ.

Under their watchful eyes, banks morphed into global money sucking machines that vacuumed up every dollar they could while all of the above stood around and said “duh.”

Not a single one of them sought to find out why Credit Default Swaps had soared from nearly zero in 2000 to an estimated $60 trillion in 2008, or how Derivatives, investments that have no value of their own, could grow to six times the value of everything on the planet.

SEC, FBI and all the financial watchdog agencies are the Mr. Magoos of law enforcement.

Grade: FFFF

  1. 5. The Department of Health and Human Services 

Our system for financing the costly federal health care system subsidizes the overuse of advanced technologies while underfinancing highly effective and lower-cost public health measures. Here again, the results speak for themselves.

More money per person is spent on health care in the USA than in any other nation in the world, and a greater percentage of total income is spent on health care in the USA than in any United Nations member except for East Timor. Is there a West Timor?

Yet, The Commonwealth Fund ranked the United States last in the quality of health care among similar countries. The USA is the only wealthy, industrialized nation that does not ensure that all citizens have coverage.

The U.S. Census Bureau reported that a record 50.7 million Americans—16.7% of the population—were uninsured in 2009.

The consequences are real. We are 48th in life expectancy, below most developed nations and some developing nations. The World Health Organization (WHO) ranked the U.S. health care system as the highest in cost, 37th in overall performance, and 72nd by overall level of health among 191 member nations included in the study.

A 2009 Harvard study estimated that 44,800 excess deaths occurred annually due to lack of health insurance.

Fifty percent of all bankruptcies are due to medical expenses.

Department of Health and Human Services: Grade: FFFFF

  1. 6. Department of Energy

Some of the most profitable of all corrupt activities involve energy. Remember Dick Cheney’s secret energy meetings? Those led directly to electricity deregulation scams, corporate welfare for energy producers, fracking, the BP oil spill, gas pipeline explosions, high gas prices, faulty nuclear reactors, and an unreliable grid.

  1. 7. Department of Housing and Urban Development

One word…Detroit.

More and more American cities are starting to look like Detroit.

This is what our money bought. Our infrastructure is in desperate condition. Roads, bridges, rail, water, sewage systems, and many dams are in dangerous disrepair around the country. Large sections of New Orleans remain wrecked and highly vulnerable.

The DOJ sells guns to Mexican drug cartels, and launders their money while aggressively pursuing the cartels competition.

What we have today is what they want us to have. So, we get prisons, not schools. We get war, not peace. We get poverty, not prosperity. We get genetically modified organisms, not food. We get wealth for a few and misery for the masses. We get oppression, not freedom. Who did it? The politicians.

You can’t vote them out because they are fungible, and the system itself prohibits most honest candidates from competing for funds. Podunk mayor and council races generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign spending for jobs that pay $12,000 a year.

Money now owns the system at every level.

It really is too late for voting. We still must vote or we send the message that we just don’t care at all, but that won’t change anything.

We have seen the enemy and we see them arming for a fight and a post-fight occupation.

Maybe you read the tea leaves differently. Maybe you think they have good intentions but really poor execution.

I read 450 million hollow points for Homeland use, an explosion of prison populations, a corrupted court system and poison everywhere as a potential threat to my right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

When they see you as a chicken breast, you know your vote matters little and your life even less.

Perfect article. I like to see well footnoted "summing it all up" articles I can forward to my friends and loved ones, as an alternate to the pablum force fed via mass media.  As I told you Tuesday in person, you have a lot to offer, and I'm glad you are on the side of the people.  We need more brave Americans, like you and your friends, to speak out on all this in justice, because the time is getting closer where it will be too late to do anything but "give me liberty or give me death!" Many wont get the choice- and will be 'hollow pointed out' for death.

Thanks for providing this article-  I ALWAYS look forward to your posts, & what you are up to. Hope to see you again soon-

Kudos to you  4closureFraud for even having a thread title like that. I would expect a visit from the secret service, but it appears they are short staffed now and quite busy. Nonetheless, I admit I did not read this article as I have felt for a long time now that most of our politicians do not serve their constituents as they should. They are all political animals, not like the farmers, small business men and blue collar workers of yestercentury, where they actually didn't want to reside in Washington. They served term limits and preferred to return to their lives in the private sector. My favorite hypocracy is the politician that runs on the basis of term limits. Then once they get elected and served their term(s), they say they need to continue to serve because they didn't have enough time to do what they wanted. What a joke! It's all corruption at this point. None of them are experts on the various committees they serve or head, yet we give them so much power. It's simply amazing! Consider this. Whomever is elected president is instantly an expert on all things - economy (all its facets, housing, wallstreet, energy, all commerce). foriegn matters (trade, war. commerce, immigration) and domestic matters  such as education and power between the state and the federal government. Yet, we currently have a president that was a law professor on constutional law and that doesn't understand the constitution himself! 


I guess we have the people in power we deserve because, excluding some ZH readers, the majority doesn't understand the above either, and thus the same corrupt and ignorant politicians continue to get elected.

And that is my rant for this thread.

Barbara Boxer is seeking authoritarianism (i also posted this in michael snyder's article):

The Obama administration is getting desperate. As part of the federal-aid highway bill, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-California) has added a provision that allows for anyone who owes the IRS more than $50,000 to be denied a passport. (Senate Bill 1813 is now in the House.)


I think Barabara Boxer's bill says it all in where we are quickly heading. I guess people should get out now before they can't. It will just take one huge economic blow to your personal finances and situation, find yourself wiped out, yet owing $52000 to the IRS without the ability to pay....and you will be denied US exit.

Boxer also voted for the NDAA, which, IMHO, makes her un-reelectable.  I guess she decided she wouldn't run again before making these choices.

The consensus for maximum survival chance  in a worst case scenario appears to be go mobile, be nomadic, and pursue a guerilla campaign.  i.e. Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett style.

As a 24-7 365 day lifestyle this would be a war of attrition to both sides and a coin flip as to who wins.  To increase your odds, utilize cold weather to your advantage.  During the summer be a nomad and build multiple resources stashes.  In the winter hold up in one place.  If they are stupid enough to attack then bug out and go nomad.  With multi-year winter ops experience the inexperienced enemy will be easy pickings and your kill ratios will go through the roof.

Most likely the enemy will disengage in the winter due to logistical costs.

in maryland we vote on a diebold terminal, our votes then are 0's and 1's in the electronic haze, subject to programs running the vote system anyone out who is supported by the reptile elite (look up Soros and the co running election results )just got nullifed..I asked for a record of my vote after voting for R Paul in this spring primary..but  there is nothing they can give me to verify my vote even happened  ...have at it voting em out..LOL

"but  there is nothing they can give me to verify my vote even happened"


which is exactly why the last vote in which I attempted participation was in 2000 when my local precinct started using a similar voting system...but previous to that we had a punch paper voting system in which the votes were counted electronically. I was deluding myself before we even had the diebold type voting terminal.

now the electronic haze includes both the voting and the counting.  good luck with that...

Yeah, the Bolsheviks were a GREAT change for the Russians!

It's a bit tiring to keep saying it all the time, but... It's the SYSTEM!

If your premise/foundation is based on a delusion (the "American Dream") then someone else picking up the operating instructions is going to do little to change the outcome from using the same playbook.  Maybe TPTB figure they're ready to pack it away and wait to take back over when the dust settles: their "strategy" is little different than many here (many "survivalists")- it's human nature; they're ALWAYS given a head start by fact that they're the "leaders" (insider trading- they know before everyone else which way the winds are blowing).

They're doing to Americans what they did to the Russian people; creating a captured market controlled by an authoritarian state. Russia was moving into position to be a direct competitor of Western capitalists, like the Rockefeller's standard oil and dynastic families in Europe, with their Russian gas fields. Sure enough, come to find out it was the West that was funding the Russian revolution and the creation of the soviet union.

Once they start throwing dissenters and protesters in prison, do you think other Americans will be concerned about getting you released? Are most Americans concerned about the prison population to date?

American people Are NOT going to put up a fight. It's a nice thought that we will all get together and go after those that are plotting the destruction of Americans (entirely from within, btw) but reality says it won't happen.

If you want to stay and fight then first look around you, and you'll see mostly clueless people or cowards. The battle has already been won by the Elites in the U.S. They will never win the war, though. The rest of the world will be the ones that bring down this Weird World Order. The Americans aren't going to be the saviors like all the movies portray them as.

We're taking our "stash" with us when we leave.

I believe the taxes on homes are going to be raised and the interest write off ended. Homes/property are going to be confiscated, valuables seized by the central banks/United Nations as collateral for the unpayable past/present/future debt of the US govt and sold on an auctioning block.

(From article)

In 2007, a year that saw investors diversify into other assets against the backdrop of a booming stock market, high net-worth individuals in China allocated 21% of their assets to real estate, against a global average of 14%. Now, the drop in housing prices and a steady RMB have created an opportunity for wealthy Chinese to invest in real estate in the United States.

And the one thing the politico-financial-elite are scared of is....ORGANIZING BY the masses. So, any OWS or Tea-party like organizing is quickly co-opted; or worse, they send in the SWAT teams and kick your doors down (like what happened to those people in the mid-west).

It's basically Check-mate for Americans. Way past midnight, and most people don't even know there was a war going on against them and they lost.

American people were warned and warned, specifically since 9/11. About a year ago a poll was done and there was still about 40% of Americans who STILL thought Saddam Hussein had something to do with 9/11. We've had TEN YEARS to wise up and do something.

In the end, American people only have themselves to blame for the loss of their nation.

I've had people tell me they were OK with the idea of having their children chipped...for security. A man told me he supported all the 'crack-downs' and loss of liberties because it was for our safety and protection from all the 'terrorists'. I asked him what happens when they come for him and his response was "I got guns". Like your guns would really matter when 20 SWAT guys are busting your door down, you idiot!

"About a year ago a poll was done and there was still about 40% of Americans who STILL thought Saddam Hussein had something to do with 9/11."

George Carlin said it best (paraphrasing): "It's the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it."

It was ALWAYS going to come to this point.  And the reason is is because we kept buying into the myth that growth is good; and now that growth is physically impossible the Dream Bubble bursts.  Nothing will be "done" because people have been programmed to be fragmented, to believe it BS stories such as created for taking over Iraq's oil fields (and MANY, MANY more); nationalists, xenophobia, it's all good for covering up reality, for lying to ourselves that we've set ourselves up for a calamity never before seen.

"Remember the old saying, “You get what you pay for”? The education a child gets determines their fate. If we spend way more on prisons than we do on education, the results are predictable and the results speak for themselves. We are “Prison Nation”.

I only disagree with one point. We throw one hell of a lot of money at education and produce ignorant, violent, sociopaths, who take what they want if it isn't given to them courtesy of government, by way of our wallets. The rest of the children are turned into sheep under the same conditions, exposed to these individuals because they cannot learn in such an environment and cannot escape because our schools have become high priced baby sitters, until the "problems" are expelled at 18 years of age, if they aren't already serving time by then. These conditions exist These "problems" realize that there is no downside to their behavior and that no matter what "someone" (government) will look after them using our wallets to solve their "problems."

The answer is not money. The answer is to undo the systems and thought processes and people who created them. Oh and one must also deal with the "problems." At some point you must begin to wonder if they were not created deliberately. My belief is that they were and that implies a purpose, a goal that is illogical, a goal that produces evil and harm to society in general. Not a goal that an honest, upright, productive person would seek, or allow to be created. The creator/s therefore must have a contrary perspective which does not embrace those values but others.

Change "money" to "energy" and realize that the available energy IS limited (laws of thermodynamics).

The "problem" with the System is that it consumed the future, it consumed/spent future energy and resources.  You CANNOT undo That!

No, there was no intent to collapse a system that served TPTB so well for so long.  It's all that they know/knew. And it was predicated on cheap energy.  They suffer with the illusion that so many non-TPTBs suffer from: denial that there could ever be an end to growth, that there's an endless supply of unlimited energy available and waiting for "discovery."

The "problem" is, and always has been, that the majority of people believe that they require "leaders."  As soon as you start down this road, and add in systems predicated on perpetual growth on a finite planet, it's only a matter of time before massive resource control raises its head.  TPTB will, in many cases, believe that they've been "chosen" to deal with these issues and are therefore ordained to apply whatever means necessary to deal with it (doing "God's work").

We won't be able to come up with any "solution" because we cannot get that the problem lies in the fundamental premise.

Government employees that use some of those 450 million hollow point bullets on American citizens will be the second shot heard round the world. With a few social networking tweets as a call to arms, killing federal government employees will become the national past time. With 300 million guns in the possession of good red blooded American civilians, and we out-number them 100 to 1, they shouldn't be much of a problem for us. The more government employees that get killed means the less tax money we'll have to pay for their government pensions, so there's a good incentive along with the fact we hate them anyway.

Nobody is going to outnumber them. The way it's going to presented is that a group or an individual will be labeled terrorist and your redneck buddies will even join the govt in shooting them down.

Let me guess- lifelong New England or Left Coast urbanite whose entire experience with rednecks comes from watching parodies of them on TV?

Michael, your post ignores two important factors: black budgets and mercenaries (especially foreign ones).

In an interview that Jim Willie did at least a year ago, he said the federal reserve had hired 250,000 mercenaries. Those are the people who own our govt. Congress and the bureaucrats just carry out the orders. Start at the top and the middle will fall.

And... that most people are utterly dependent upon the centralized systems (food, water etc.).  Imagine the folks running water treatment plants get notified to add a little "extra" in the water systems, and that if they don't they'll be "replaced;" the incentive will be that they will be able to notify their families to not drink the water (but they can't say why, and they have to inform their families that they cannot say anything- National Security!).  The "enforcers" need only be posted to watch out for these gatekeepers, make sure that They carry out their orders.

I've heard they are already using the hollow bullets, but you don't see an outcry from the public. In fact the public has been very accommodating to having their liberties removed. Just look at how they line up at the airports to have their crotches felt up. They even let their children be felt up by strangers! Pretty soon they'll be lining people up at airports, bus stations, and even stopping you while driving your cars to do vaginal and asshole probes. What will Americans do then? They'll just pop more Xanax before they get hearded into a probing stall.

I think this has also been an experiment by the Elites to see just how far they can go with the American people. Obviously they must be surprised to see how easy and compliant Americans are.

"On New Year’s Eve, while nobody was looking, the president signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act,"

Notice how the nastiest stuff Obama does is always late at night and/or on holiday weekends? 

Most transparent administration... EVAH!

Did you just fall off the Turnip Truck?  Think that this is something that's only been practiced by the current POTUS?

I smell more stupid Party Pussy shit lurking...

Pretty good summary, but let me throw one more log on the fire-TPTB are making plans to evacuate Chicago (for real):

It's going to be an interesting rest of 2012 to say the least.

There are lots of reasons they want us dead but the big one is that they don't need us any more. There is more than enough cheap labor and that's not even taking into account robots. Another big one is that they view us like ants. A nuisance to be stepped on.

Answer: We should kill them. And we will...

I respectfully disagree. I am worrying that a nation of potatoes who can't tell you much more than the latest sports scores, winners on DWTS or American Idol, are not going to do much. Our citizens have been lulled into a sense of stupidity - most being delightfully satisfied with a couch, beer, TV, and a roof over their heads.  

Want to make a huge difference? Right now? Grow a pair, call your cable company and cancel your cable. Defund the enemedia. Kick the filth out of your house and your/your familiy's lives. Render them powerless from that end.

BINGO!  Quit giving them power!  Participating in their System enables them.

Long ago quit paying them for their propaganda, no TV.  Had a cell phone for a few years, no longer do.

A man with a gun is a citizen

A man without a gun is a subject


How bad do you think they would be raping us if we didn't have guns .... scary isn't it.

The true guns are the will of the people to impose a rule of law by using the elective process to give power to honest people and take power from crony capitalisits bending all kinds of rules. Amongst the 99% of the population there is the future generation of Jeffersonians and Washingtonians. If the people of the USA were aware of their true power, how fortunate they are to live in a country with institutions that IMPOSE the rule of law, and the collective will of the people, unlike MOST of humanity, they would become POLITICALLY active to enforce the USE of those institutions to establish rule of the law and outlaw crony capitalism.

Its the benign neglect of the people that feeds the beast. You won't solve the USA's problems by buying Gold, maybe your own, but not collectively as a country. It has to be through the political process of institutions. But for that to occur you need a NEW MINDSET in the 99%. Wake up America. Maybe it'll take more pain and the next generation for this to occur...
