Happy Birthday America

It's different this time...

Some thoughts (submitted by Chris Moorman),

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"


-The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus

Happy Birthday America!
238 years old. Quite a respectable age.
You’ve managed to stay upright and breathing through a Civil War which nearly ripped you in half. 
You fought on behalf of liberty in two World Wars which enveloped you from across the globe, and even in victory, you magnanimously invited the vanquished back into the global community with open arms.
You’ve welcomed, albeit occasionally with gritted teeth, the “huddled masses” and “wretched refuse” of immigrants unwanted in their native lands and assimilated them into a society which has grown to be the richest the world has ever seen.
You’ve dealt with modernization, urbanization and the mass media.
You faced down the threat of nuclear annihilation and the dehumanizing spectre of Communism largely with soft power instead of the destruction that total war brings.
For the better part of two and a half centuries, you’ve held true to those most sacrosanct of ideals espoused by your Founding Fathers, those mostly enlightened men, “who brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal” and in doing so have been a source of hope for freedom loving people everywhere.
This isn’t to say that you’ve been blameless. No institution, no matter how grand its codified ideals (I’m looking at you Catholicism) can stay blameless forever. The stain of slavery, the dehumanization of those we found on this continent prior to European discovery, and the wars of choice fought over the past 60 years have fallen short of your commitment to those high minded ideals in favor of “realpolitik.”
I should quit saying “you.” This isn’t a professional sports team I’ll never play for, this is America. This is the living breathing organism which has from my first breath, blessed me with freedom, safety and mobility to be whomever I choose to be.
I cannot pick those attributes of America with which I agree a la carte, leaving the less desirable remainders for others to choke down. I cannot look at my neighbor and say, “Oh no, this is YOUR President. I didn’t vote for him.”
Men and women who came before me gave their blood, sweat, tears and lives to vouchsafe my ability to make this MY America, one where each voice, no matter its wealth, social status, or color of skin has an equal part to play in maintaining the greatest engine of human freedom and prosperity that the world has ever seen.
Yet spending another 4th of July abroad, I find myself tired.

I am tired of trying to explaining away the past 14 years of leadership so comically unenlightened that our political system has devolved into a shouting match incapable of legislating.


I’m tired of trying to explain to the Europeans and the Vietnamese and everyone else who doesn’t share my passport cover that the policies of my government do not reflect Americans as individuals.


I’m tired of seeing my government encroaching further and further into the lives of its citizenry, of spying on even our allies, and systematically limiting the rights of the individual.


I’m tired of being called a “brainwashed moron” because I believe in the fundamental American right to bear arms, even in the face of yet another mass shooting.


I’m tired of seeing my fellow Americans try to pass themselves off as Canadians to attempt to shirk a history that while imperfect, is still as proud or prouder than any nation the world has ever seen.

For all the chest beating talk of “American Exceptionalism” I hear at home, I am tired of being in a room of foreigners and seen as the idiot because I am not “properly embarrassed” of my country.
I am an American, and God help me if even for a fleeting moment that I deny that enviable truth.
I stand here today embracing the fact that the problems of the nation which has given me so much are inseparable from my own.
I look to the members of the so called “Greatest Generation,” who sacrificed lives by the millions against a tyrannical force as twisted and corrupt as any seen in the course of human history, for guidance. 
They fought with a single mind against an enemy armed with weapons engineered to make the slaughter of innocents magnitudes more efficient than ever before. They had the same right to vote that I did. They did not shirk from their duty, or try to hide behind their broken political system. They stood and took the mantle of liberty upon their own shoulders and said, “Liberty will prevail, and America will make sure of it.”
What happened to that America? Are we going through some sort of national midlife crisis?
Why is my generation different from that of my grandparents? Has our democratic right to vote been taken away? Has our voice been silenced by statute or dictat? Do we find men with guns at our doors waiting to silence opposition?
No. The answer is much more humiliating.
We’ve merely disengaged. We’ve taken the spoils that our forebears won for us and squandered our inheritance on iPhones and TVs. On houses that would’ve made even the richest in generations past blush with the embarrassment.
We’ve taken “conspicuous consumption,” once a behavior to be avoided at all costs, and made it into a virtue.
We tear apart our politicians at the slightest misspoken word, while giving our hours and eyeballs to such enlightened television as “Teen Mom,” “Honey Boo-Boo,” and the countless shows devoted to the Kardashians, a family known only for the limited virtue of their fame seeking promiscuity.
We’ve taken capitalism, an engine of growth predicated on rewarding the hardest working and most creative among us, and corrupted it into a rigged game of three card monte through cronyism and financialization.
Americans have inherited a system which requires constant maintenance, and we’ve let it go on autopilot for nearly an entire generation. The results have been as bad as history would have predicted.
Our education system, once envied as the best in the world, now languishes along side such countries as Lithuania and the Slovak Republic, and behind those once “vanquished” foes, the Russians.
Our middle class has been systematically gutted, our rural communities left to wither on the vine both economically and socially, and our political class has partitioned themselves away from the people whom they are elected to represent, happy to bicker from their DC perches rather than associate with the lower classes in anything more meaningful than a photo-op.
The America that we live in and the freedoms we enjoy are not ours by divine right. It is, and will continue to be an ever evolving experiment, the results of which are determined daily by the diligent effort of those citizens who continue to maintain it through their individual efforts.
Our efforts determine the America that my children and yours will inherit.
It is the sacred duty of each of us to ensure that that inheritance is worth receiving.
America I haven’t given up on you. Far from it, my travels have merely galvanized my belief in that responsibility George Washington entrusted to Americans 227 years ago.
Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair
Generations of great men and women have both raised and maintained that standard, handing it to their sons and daughters in turn. It is the hallowed responsibility of mine to repair it to its former glory, not let it fall to a state beyond repair.
Happy Birthday America.
Enjoy it.
We’ve got work to do tomorrow.

Did you know:


Most Zerohedge articles are designed to make you lose money.

Zoroastrianism is the 1 true religion :D

Thinking more positively is the way to create solutions.

Reductive thinking is only useful for realizing what doesn't work.

It will not present solutions.

Scientology is not a scam - dianetics is simply taking command of your brain.

Most zerohedge articles are designed to keep you in a state of fear.

Aside from insulting almost every world religion, the board you're posting on and using the term 'reductive thinking' when I believe you meant to say 'deductive reasoning', no nothing's wrong.  It's fine.

You're not very good at this, are you?

employing an analysis of a complex subject into a simplified, less detailed form; of, pertaining to, or employing reductionism; reductionistic. Reducing only matters when you want to know what doesn't work. You then build from what you've reduced. Thus yielding something that has at its very core, the basis for its existance.  IE government / currency.
I'd tell you you've the logic of a lawyer, but in reality, its just idiotic and narrowminded. As for religions?  LOLOLOL, don't make me laugh I don't concern myself with the theories of morons.

That's the definition of Reductive, which you obviously found here (definition 3):

The use of reductive thinking has a name.  It's called Reductionism.  I would have used the actual name if you were trying to sound superior to everyone, which you obviously are.

Would you care to explain what it means, so I can post up the Wikipedia link, where you will have copied it from?

If you want to claim the authority to say the things you are saying, you better polish up on your presentation skills. You would indeed do better to accuse us of being "reductionist." You missed his point. Name calling does not inspire any one to listen to you and engage in a civil exchange.

You are right, there is a certain way that this place feeds on fear and it can be unhealthy. But positive happy thoughts and "wishing" is not the way out of the level of corruption that we are dealing with. When the mainstream media loads us up on fake positive propaganda, it is a logical reaction that a blogspace like this one may lean hard on negative news simply to balance things out. 

They do occasionally post things that have happened that are hopeful or in the right direction (a recent SCOTUS decision comes to mind). 

Me, I think the author of this post is right on the money. The country has become so content that they have cultivated a culture of consumption, fetishism, and disengagement. That is one big assed rock for Prometheus to push up hill.

there is nothing positive about ignoring the truth. 

Positivity and negativity are like math. 

Killing evil people is good.

helping good people is good.

ignoring the truth is bad.

promoting the truth is good.

listening to dumb people is bad

listening to smart people is good.

See, two positives make a positive, two negatives make positive, and heterogenous mixture is negative.

'You fought on behalf of liberty in two World Wars...'

I got as far as that and stopped. America supplied both sides with munitions in WWII. The only reason Germany didn't receive theirs was because the Royal Navy sunk their ships. Which side was liberty on then, or do we just call it what it is, outrageous opportunism with more than a liberal helping of bullshit.

If you want to celebrate then celebrate, but spare us all the bullshit, please...

Next you'll be trying to tell us that America has some kind of higher moral standing or more freedom than anyone else, and that really will make me throw up.

Happy birthday.

The only idiot around here is yourself. 

Proof ? You keep collecting red arrows long beyond what common sense would deem acceptable (or even funny).

Common sense is natural intelligence at its basic (survival) level... You don't have it ! So, let me explain it to you:

a red arrow is the equivalent to a kick in the ass from people who won't bother answering you.

The more you get, the further away you place yourself from the group that you are trying communicate with.

You might fool yourself by thinking that you are some sort of "contrarian", but in reality you are just a miserable troll (baiting to provoke angry reactions).

Apart from being impolite to the extreme, trolling is also moronic, as it requires only following a simplistic script, and no original thinking. It has the same logic of a website bot.

Collect your red arrows (you seem very good at it) and get lost under your rock .

You are a perfect waste of time...

Who determines who is good and who is evil?

If you kill people doesn't that make you evil?

If you help good people so they become dependent on your help does that make you evil?

If the truth is that you are going to die tomorrow and you choose to ignore that is it bad?

If you yell, "You're all going to die" in a crowded movie theatre is that a good thing even if it really is true that everyone will die eventually?

If dumb people are saying they are going to take your stuff or kill you for it is it bad to listen to them?

If smart people say you are evil and should die is it good to listen to them?

I don't give a flung turd about this or that way of thinking.  It's all just excuses for this or that path of action in order to excuse any kind of conscience or responsibility. 

Edit:  Isn't evil a religious concept?  Since you have no respect for religion then you must not buy into the obvious religious fallacy that there is even such a thing as evil. Or, maybe you believe in this thing called evil which you cannot actually define with precise scientific parameters.  Keep up the faith.

Everything I have read seems to imply that immunity from the small pox vaccine should be very long lasting. They are predicting partial immunity to 75 years but I'm not sure how they determined that. Remember, this was a live virus vaccine that results in a better immune response though more dangerous to use. Unfortunately, as we age, our immune system wanes so even with partial immunity you could succumb to it. I guess you've got to die from something but what I've heard of small pox, that wouldn't be a pleasant way to go.

Or you could do as I did. In my virology class, I was inoculating eggs with an orthopox virus and accidentally stabbed myself with the needle. Got a skin lesion and a fever. My prof said I just probably got a booster for small pox. Mr miffed isn't so sure and claims it fried my brain and is mystified why I do the things I do. I guess being female just isn't a convincing or believable explanation.

I guess I am just a student of Marcus Aurelius and go through life inquisitive and curious about everything. I find men fascinating and enjoy understanding their perspective, something that doesn't seem appreciated today. Perhaps this is your attraction and I am saddened there doesn't seem to be too many women today that share this characteristic. I will hope you meet one in your future.

I'm celebrating the Fourth of July by NOT celebrating it.

The first rule of Freedom is to make sure your mind is FREE first and foremost.  Not just from outside lies and delusions.  But also and more importantly the ones you generate yourself.

And the first truth of ALL truths can NEVER be truly free.  You will ALWAYS be under the control or influence of someone from the moment you are conceived until the blessed day you die.

And even if you DELUDE yourself that you can attain freedom of some sort....or that you HAVE attained freedom of some sort you are NEVER free from the battle to keep that freedom.

The greatest gift and the greatest tragedy of the Declaration of Independence and the subsequent formation of America is the knowledge now that men can never be free and indepedent.  They never have been.....nor can they ever be.

In fact....the sad truth is......we have to have a Declaration of Independence to tell us and the world that "we hold these truths to be SELF EVIDENT".  Really ?  If "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" were so fucking "self evident"......then why did Jefferson have to write it down for posterity's sake ?

And sadder still......nearly 230 years later.....after it being SOOOooooo self evident....and even if it weren't it's WRITTEN DOWN FOR ALL TO SEE......we and the world are more enslaved than ever.  It's even worse.  We THINK we have so much more freedom than ever just because for most of us our lives are "EASIER" than our parents, grand parents and the generations before.

And THAT'S the biggest SELF ENSLAVING DELUSION of all.  The American Dream of an easy life and an even easier living retirement.  This is our chain of enslavement.  And we are all enslaved by it.  Just by the very fact we live and work in this system, we feed the machine....we feed the slave holders.....we tighten our own chains. 

And as the survey shows.....79% say that's perfectly OK for them.

Happy Independence Day.

Let us take these in turn, shall we?

1. Most Zerohedge articles are designed to make you lose money.

I don't know what to do with this. Granted, a number of articles posted to the Zerohedge site were written by people with financial interests at stake, but Zerohedge (and this is obvious to those of us here longer than a week) is a compelling forum because of the absence of sugarcoated mass media messaging. A number of the authors whose work appears here are valuable contributors to the thinking of any serious investor. You might have noticed that further valuable analysis often takes place in the comments - there are (present company excepted) some very smart and knowledgeable folks making positive contributions here.

2. Zoroastrianism is the 1 true religion :D

I would be interested in seeing you define 'true religion'. I think I just heard some of our more semantically knowledgeable members laugh out loud.

3. Thinking more positively is the way to create solutions.

This is a tautology.

4. Reductive thinking is only useful for realizing what doesn't work. It will not present solutions.

This is three parts the opposite of sentence 3, and one part inane. It also suggests there is no value in understanding why something didn't work, and we all know that is not true. Most good quality management processes include after-action and failure analysis activities.

5. Scientology is not a scam - dianetics is simply taking command of your brain.

I am trying to remember the last time I saw anything on Scientology, so I am not sure why this is here, but let us take it at face value. Fine, Scientology is not a scam. Belief systems are like assholes. Everyone has one. Better now?

6. Most zerohedge articles are designed to keep you in a state of fear.

I find the variety of perspectives and the generally contrarian messaging of the 'Hedge to be refreshing and thought-provoking. It is only when I tune to the captured media that I experience any negative emotions. I suppose that one man's trash is another man's treasure, but I have always thought that statement reflects more upon the man and his vision and capabilities than on the object in question.

ok, I'll step to plate and smash you.  But warning, you will cry like a bitch.



ZH demonizes most input from the banks, even though they often times fuckin nail it.  & most of their data comes from the banks.  Where you think they get all those charts from?

Lets also see, they tell you over and over short the market for like 4 years running, only last year they changed their tune, and I wouldn't be surprised if its going to change again.

Its free financial information, and you get what you pay for, generally. I agree with the sentiment of ZH, shit is clearly not alright.  Things are VERY fucked up. But being smarter than the average idiot is NOT enough.

I note all of the trades ZH has given, and the only 2 that were good, were long some stock that was suing jp morgan, and 3 months later won.  & the other good adivce was short Knght Capital after Knightmare.

So Yea, I know what I am fucking talking about, and I know good traders, and none of them, bother with this shit.  I will say tho, some of the articles are helpful, most are garbage, and are not helpful to people looking to move forward or create solutions.


2).  religion is a spiritual belief.  Zoroastrians believe that good actions and thoughts create good, for one's self and others.  Pretty strait forward there.


3).  No shit shirlock, so why are you being negative?


4). wow ur def not smart, reductive thinking is extremely important... wow you say that as if reductive thinking is not...  holy crap u are dumb.


5).  scientology is legit as fuck.  Basically preaches that you, are a fumbling moron who is incaable of logical thinking, until you work through your issues in a process called dianetics.  I see out of order with it right now.


6). then you sir, are a simple little fellow, run along.

As I suspected, you are incapable of actual dialog, but it is in my nature to give everyone an opportunity to explain themselves.

As the written word is the only means of expression in these kinds of exchanges, it seems to me that you might invest a little more effort in consistency, accuracy, grammar and spelling. It is the only tool in the box here.

I am still trying to understand your criticisms of Zerohedge. For the most part, the site itself functions as a collector of stories written elsewhere, which gives the operators considerable control over the site's gestalt, but the original authors speak for themselves. And I do not think anyone here relies solely on this site for their financial due diligence. This is not intended to be a repository of security-level research for investment decision support. It is, as you say, free to use, with all that implies, yet I and others find it useful.

I don't know any serious theologian who would equate religion with spirituality as you seem to above. That said, you avoided responding to my original comment at #2.

As to #3, in what way do you believe I am being negative? Or are you conflating me with your hypothesis about the entirety of the Zerohedge site? My response here was a statement of fact, which you affirmed. My observation was intended to point out its triviality.

Regarding your response at #4, let us simply say it is not one of your better moments.

As far as #5 is concerned, you have to understand that you are prosthelytizing, and that smells of fanaticism, a trait I do not associate with intelligence. As I said, everyone has a belief system. I have mine, assembled over many years, and borrowing valuable ideas from many places. But it would not be recognized by any purveyor of an organized faith as their own.

#6 reveals you for a stereotypical troll; you are your own hero, battling the forces of ignorance from the safety of your keyboard, mistaking the candlepower of your intellect for a searchlight.

That is all the time I intend to waste on you. I suggest you go find a forum where the average user will be less likely to out you as a poser so quickly.

I think the International Jew is a sign of progress. Some of these articles and comments are cutting really close to the bone. They are sending droids, and propaganda personal at an increasing rate to diffuse the bone cutting. His comments have dominated the dialog of this article as designed, and the slaves have taken the simple poison bait back to the hive.

I have some personal theories that this site is used to refine a variety of propaganda techniques, so don't be caught unaware when the next International Jew starts trying to find buttons to push. Happy 4th everyone, and keep the love.

It isn't just America ...


What is Wrong With the People.

First, there is plenty of reason for hope, so don’t despair, but …

Something is wrong with the people, who seem increasingly partisan, ignorant, apathetic, dishonest, evasive, cowardly, hypocritical, passive aggressive, insecure, conformist, closed minded, irrational, illogical, and unprincipled. Perhaps most obvious is the increase in cognitive dissonance, but the entirety of the character devolution of the people should be really obvious to any American who has lived long enough. I first noticed it during the Clinton Administration, but the root cause actually started long before that and merely caused a rather obvious leap under Clinton.

A lifetime of experience has taught me that just about everyone has the potential for the dark side as well as the potential for nobility. Both impulses are in our genes, but something in our environment is favoring the dark side.

First, let’s identify the rather obvious trends that motivate us to find a cause. Then, we will learn how they all have the same root cause:

Before we can solve a problem, we usually must understand the cause; otherwise, the unintended consequences could be worse than the original problem. In fact, the solutions of the past are the cause of most of our problems today.

Given that those who are most successful tend to be those who are least principled, we can see why every other problem is the result of unhealthy interventions at the top, but how did it get to be this way?

After a few generations of unhealthy interventions from the top by men who may or may not have been principled, we can see how their bad solutions created a perverse incentive structure that rewards bad behavior and punishes good behavior. Just like bad parenting creates a spoiled child who suffers from arrested development, now an entire people are increasingly spoiled children who suffer from arrested development.

The Soviet Union had a system that rewarded unprincipled people, and it crumbled from within.

Everything afflicting the people (that wasn’t caused by evolution) is caused by dishonest banking and a dishonest money supply, and the watershed of problems are self reinforcing. One unusually large cause of problems, that was itself indirectly caused by dishonest banking and dishonest money, is political correctness. Another unusually large cause of problems that was itself indirectly caused by dishonest banking and dishonest money, is media bias. Of course, the chain of cause and effect is long, complex, and suppressed by the media; whereas, myths are substituted by the media, but the chain of cause and effect should be clear by the end of this article.

This is where the real explanation begins.

Dishonest banking and money are caused by:

  • Central banking
  • Fiat currency
  • Fractional reserve banking
  • Quantitative easing
  • Zero Interest Rate Policy (ZIRP)

Central Banking: The Federal Reserve is a private bank with a government granted monopoly on currency creation; whereas, money is a product just like any other, and thus would benefit from competition just like any other product. Why do you think the Federal Reserve refuses to be audited? Central banking was universally considered dishonest until the 20th century.

Fiat Currency: What most people still don’t know is that all of the money in America is created from nothing and backed by nothing except confidence, and thus it is referred to as fiat currency. Fiat currency was universally considered dishonest until the 20th century.

Fractional Reserve Banking:  The main cause of fiat currency is that banks can lend at least ten times as much money as they receive in deposits, and depending on the type of loan and type of deposit, it can be even more. Over time, the government has been making it increasingly easier for banks to create more unearned money out of nothing. This is known as fractional reserve banking, which was universally considered dishonest until the 20th century.

Quantitative Easing: In addition to fractional reserve banking, under Obama, the Federal reserve has been creating a much larger than usual amount of money and loaning it to the government and the banks. This is known as quantitative easing, which was universally considered dishonest until the 20th century.

ZIRP: The federal reserve has reduced the interest rates to nearly zero percent on money it loans to the government and on money it loans to those banks who own the Federal Reserve.  This is known as Zero Interest Rate Policy (ZIRP), which was universally considered dishonest until the 20th century.

Consider that any entity who borrows money at zero interest has little incentive to ever pay it back, and will in fact have much incentive to keep borrowing. That’s a very corrupting influence.

Bailouts: Before Quantitative Easing and ZIRP, the government tried bailouts. Does anyone believe that the crash of 2008 and many of its prerequisites would have happened if all the self-proclaimed Elites had been certain that bailouts were an impossibility? It is almost as if bailouts were part of some plan.

Bailouts are unconstitutional, but they happened anyway, so we see that it is really just the character of the American people that gives the Constitution its power, and the American people lacked the character to stop the bailouts. It is almost as if character devolution were part of some plan.

Bailouts were universally considered dishonest until Obama.

Cronyism: Dishonest banking causes the government and the big banks to receive a flood of unearned money, which then finds it way to their closest cronies, which thus tempts cronies to become closer cronies and which tempts honest entities to become first-time cronies. This is called cronyism, and although it has been growing for a long time, it was universally considered to be dishonest – until Obama became the President.

Government rewards cronies with bailouts, contracts, tax breaks, regulations that help the crony and/or hurt honest competitors, and with selective enforcement of laws and regulations. Once the media became cronies, then media bias also helped other cronies and hurt honest competitors.

Once cronyism took hold at the top of government, the cronyism trickled down to the local level. Cronies in local government thus have the support of the cronies directly above them.

A system that favors cronyism makes it increasingly difficult for honest individuals and honest businesses to compete with cronies. It also manufactures more cronies by corrupting honest people. Furthermore, the dwindling number of men of principle limit their success by avoiding doing business with cronies.

Dishonest bankers corrupted honest banking, which then corrupted government, which then corrupted the free-market, which thus corrupted the people, which thus reduced entrepreneurship, innovation, efficiency, and honesty.

Think about it.  Did you trust the MSM when they told you 9/11 building 7 fell all on its own?

Why would you trust the MSM when they told you what scientology was?

1. They're now selling oil to the refineries that ship oil to the US and Europe.
They ship 100 tankers a week. At 19000 dollars a tanker, that's almost 2 dollar a week.

2. They now sell merchandising for kids on Ebay!

I had a dream the other night I didn’t understand,
A figure walking through the mist with a flintlock in his hand.

His clothes were torn, and dirty, as he stood there by my bed,
He took off his three-cornered hat, and speaking low he said:

We fought a revolution to secure our liberty,
We wrote the Constitution, as a shield from tyranny.

For future generations, this legacy we gave,
In this, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

The freedom we secured for you, we hoped you’d always keep,
But tyrants labored endlessly while your parents were asleep.

Your freedom gone – your courage lost – you’re no more than a slave,
In this, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

You buy permits to travel, and permits to own a gun,
Permits to start a business, or to build a place for one.

On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent,
Although you have no choice in choosing how the money’s spent.

Your children must attend a school that doesn’t educate,
Your moral values can’t be taught, according to the state.

You read about the current “news” in a regulated press,
You pay a tax you do not owe, to please the IRS.

Your money is no longer made of silver or of gold,
You trade your wealth for paper, so your life can be controlled.

You pay for crimes that make our Nation turn from God to shame,
You’ve taken Satan’s number, as you’ve traded in your name.

You’ve given government control to those who do you harm,
So they can burn down churches, and steal the family farm.

And keep our country deep in debt, put men of God in jail,
Harass your fellow countrymen while corrupted courts prevail.

Your public servants don’t uphold the solemn oath they’re sworn,
Your daughters visit doctors so children won’t be born.

Your leaders ship artillery and guns to foreign shores,
And send your sons to slaughter, fighting other people’s wars!

Can you regain your freedom for which we fought and died?
Or don’t you have the courage, or the faith to stand with pride?

Are there no more values for which you’ll fight to save?
…Or do you wish your children live in fear, and be a slave?

Sons of the Republic, arise, and take a stand!
Defend the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land!

Preserve our Republic, and each God-given right!
And pray to God to keep the torch of freedom burning bright!

As I awoke he vanished, in the mist from whence he came,
His words were true, we are not free, we have ourselves to blame.

For even now as tyrants trample each God-given right,
We only watch and tremble, too afraid to stand and fight.

If he stood by your bedside in a dream while you were asleep,
And wonder what remains of your rights he fought to keep;

What would be your answer if he called out from the grave?
Is this still the land of the free, and the home of the brave?

“Well doctor, what have we got….a Republic or a Monarchy”?
“A Republic if you can keep it” Ben Franklin

Independence Day 2014:


Be sure to fly the United States of America flag upside down, in flag etiquette, an upside down flag is considered a “distress” signal.


The American People are under attack and in “distress” today on many fronts (our democracy has been overthrown and our Free Enterprise System of capitalism economy has been destroyed) by the same criminals that successfully carried out the “inside job” attacks on 9/11/01. The American People have been under attack for 13 years!!!


Illegal immigration is just another fascist bankster/ big oil/ military complex/drugs criminal cartel orchestrated attack to destroy American Sovereignty (independence) with secret and illegal trade agreements and UN Agenda 21st Century.

"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free..."

How inappropriate, on this particular Independence Day, to spotlight immigration.

As Laddie wrote recently on ZH: Although the Statue of Liberty, properly known as Liberty Enlightening the World, was a gift to the United States from France as a tribute to American political traditions, the sonnet by the Jewish Emma Lazarus helped change it into a symbol of immigration. Affixed to the base of the statue several decades after its construction, the poem welcomes to America "huddled masses yearning to breathe free / The wretched refuse of your teeming shore."

I wonder why Chris felt the need to have this

"This isn’t to say that you’ve been blameless. No institution, no matter how grand its codified ideals (I’m looking at you Catholicism) can stay blameless forever. The stain of slavery, the dehumanization of those we found on this continent prior to European discovery, and the wars of choice fought over the past 60 years have fallen short of your commitment to those high minded ideals in favor of “realpolitik.”

A decent write-up without this shite, reminds us what our focus should be, but why point a finger?

Why did he have to point out one religion? Blamless forever?

Chris is a Half-Wit.

actually its pretty strait forward.  the torah and talmud forbid telling the truth.  and they HEAVILY demonize the things that are most truthful.  Its really really simple.  So that would mean scientology is legit...  & I looked into it, and it is.

The U.S.A. has crossed the Rubicon.

The ideals it was founded on and the people who follow those ideals have been sold out.

Notice how all the left/right - red/blue sides have managed to collude to shred the Constitution and sell out the middle class?

Notice how both sides have managed to get the flag wavers to voluntarily sign up to be sent overseas to pointless wars of aggression that benefit the M.I.C.?

Notice how both sides have managed to make us "shelter in place" and welcome the militarization of police forces all in the name of "safety"?

It's called being SOLD OUT.  I wish I could celebrate the 4th of July like I used to, now it is more like a memorial service instead of a celebration.

The Plan is to separate society into three groups, the Owners, the Sold Out, and the Dead. The Owners group is not accepting any new goyim members. Which one of the other two groups would you like to belong to?

Your piece, ebworthen, would have been an excellent substitute for an Independence Day article as Chris Moorman has submitted a pretty revolting offer.

The Moorman attempt, except for his right-to-bear-arms comment, could have been written by Cronkite, Brokaw, or George McGovern. For all the mass-media, politically-correct ills of America are there: the pediophile scandal, the mark of slavery that we will wear forever, the slaughter of the Indians to our everlasting shame, the disgusting consumerism of the wasteful middle class, the folly of the young and their iPhones…

At least the Kaiser and Hitler were vanquished to "save the world" but one would quarrel with the premise that all our enemies were brought back to the “global community with open arms,” as they now are mere puppets to an Israeli-American Empire Axis.

Dealing with enemies such as Communism with “soft power” also might disturb those soldiers of Korea and Vietnam who were allowed to die but not allowed to win.

Lilke Cronkite, Moorman would celebrate Independence Day with open-border immigration because that’s what a mass audience is all about, and like Cronkite, Moorman jwould skip America’s real ills such as the session in 1910 on a Georgia Island where the world’s richest and most powerful bankers, competitors, got together to plan how they would steal America’s riches for themselves. And, what’s more, they would be partners in this new central bank. But the worst part of their plan was that the United States government, not its people, would also be a partner.

And since the government would be under their control, the people would pay and pay and pay with all of their assets, and all of their labor until it was all gone. This was the Federal Reserve. And Mr. Moorman still does not think our voice has been silenced by statute or dictat?

And, btw, Chris Moorman, why can I not look at my neighbor and say, “This is YOUR president. I didn’t vote for him”?  You haven’t seen my neighbor.

To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.
