- Americans are better off than most others in the world.

- The US economy is a free market system.

- Corporations owe their success to free market & innovation rather than govt support &? subsidy.

- What happiness we have is thanks to big business & free markets.

- For our ills, the govt is to blame, rather than big business.

Not work or children safe because of a few F bombs, but when this Irishman speaks of Wankin' F'ing Bankers, it's a literal reference to all Central Bankers and their proxy 'private sector investment/commercial banks' (by extension, who are the tools that perpuate wealth-theft that is fiat fraud):

*This thread has grown to 5+ pages of comments in near or record time on a NFL Sunday, during game time. The Bernank's quants are furiously inputting that factoid into their models, as they're curious to find out how fast their system will unravel.

What Ben Bernake is doing is punishable by death according to the US Constitution.  I look forward to hearing what Ron Paul will say about this latest FED move, and hope that he will bring it up in Congress not just on the campaign trail.  I would hope that if by some divine miracle that Ron Paul is elected he will order the closing of the FED and one of those muti-traitor gallows be erected on the Capital Mall.  Where six or eight of the FED board members and chairman are hung at the same time.  Are you listening FED WATCH monitors?

Speaking of Big Brother, this OCCUPYWALLSTREET protest video capture, without full context mind you, really looks like the cop took him down for...talking. Talking smack, whatever I don't know, but yes, protesters, to be considered peaceful, watch your language, don't block traffic, keep on to the sidewalks, and stop at red lights. Make sure you are wearing proper attire, comb your hair and brush your teeth before participation.

"Anglerfishes are members of the teleost order Lophiiformes (pronounced /?l??fi???f?rmi?z/).[1] They are bony fishes named for their characteristic mode of predation, wherein a fleshy growth from the fish's head (the esca or illicium) acts as a lure; this is considered analogous to angling."

Of course it is better to blame it on a mysterious and secret bunch.  Rather than the one right out in front of you.

Maybe in a hundred years we will have enough information to truly find out who is screwing us?

Or how about we destroy fractional reserve banking and all the grist and easy money that comes from lending it?

Then maybe we will have a few less "illuminati" running around in the usual places?

And we can avoid the phrase (gasp) Anti-Semite.

Some good one-liners.  Truths, insights, and realities that slap you upside the head. 


Fair Trade Fraud: How Congress Pillages the Consumer and Decimates American Competitiveness ...

James Bovard: Here are some epigrams from that 1991 work:

Government cannot make trade more fair by making it less free.

The myth of fair trade is that politicians and bureaucrats are fairer than markets – that government coercion and restriction can create a fairer result than voluntary agreement – and that prosperity is best achieved by arbitrary political manipulation, rather than allowing each individual and company to pursue their own interest.


Lost Rights: The Destruction of American Liberty (1994) ...

It is important to have a sounder distinction between democracy and thievery than simply counting votes.

Beggaring the taxpayer is the main achievement of the welfare state. The federal tax system has turned individuals into sharecroppers of their own lives.

A law is simply a reflection of the momentary perception of self-interest by a majority of a legislative body.

Politicians have sought to maximize social progress by maximizing the number of people labeled to be criminals. 


Freedom in Chains: The Rise of the State and the Demise of the Citizen (1999) ...

Paternalism is a desperate gamble that lying politicians will honestly care for those who fall under their power.

So much of political philosophy throughout history has consisted of concocting reasons why people have a duty to be tame animals in politicians' cages.

• The surest effect of exalting government is to make it easier for some people to drag others down.

The growth of government is like the spread of a dense jungle, and the average citizen can hack through less of it every year.

• Trusting government nowadays means dividing humanity into two classes: those who can be trusted with power to run other people's lives, and those who cannot even be trusted to run their own lives.


Feeling Your Pain: The Explosion and Abuse of Government Power in the Clinton-Gore Years (2001) ...

• Clinton exploited and expanded the dictatorial potential of the US presidency.

The lies that Clinton got away with were far more important than the ones on which he was caught. 

The better that people understand what Clinton did in office, the greater the nation's chances for political recovery.


Terrorism and Tyranny: Trampling Freedom, Justice, and Peace to Rid the World of Evil (2003) ...

Nothing happened on 9/11 that made the federal government more trustworthy.

The Patriot Act treats every citizen like a suspected terrorist and every federal agent like a proven angel.

• The worse government fails, the less privacy citizens supposedly deserve. 

• Killing foreigners is no substitute for protecting Americans. 

It is impossible to destroy all alleged enemies of freedom everywhere without also destroying freedom in the United States.

• In the long run, people have more to fear from governments than from terrorists. Terrorists come and go, but power-hungry politicians will always be with us.

Habeas corpus is an insurance policy to prevent governments from going berserk.


The Bush Betrayal (2005) ...

We need a constitutional amendment to make the federal government obey the Constitution. 

Neither Washington nor Jefferson ever intended for the President of the United States to become the Torturer-in-Chief.


 Attention Deficit Democracy (2006). ...

• Rather than a democracy, we increasingly have an elective dictatorship. People are merely permitted to choose who will violate the laws and the Constitution.

• Bogus fears can produce real servitude.

• As long as rulers are above the law, citizens have the same type of freedom that slaves had on days when their masters chose not to beat them.


James Bovard was born at the right time, possessing the proper talent – a combination of acute intelligence, skeptical humor and investigative discipline. But he is still lucky to be living when he is. It suits his peculiar genius.

The federal tax system has turned individuals into sharecroppers of their own lives.

"One of the greatest detriments to job creation in the US is the overseas income deferral law. This unbelievable gift to transnational corporations is at the heart of free trade, globalization, offshoring and outsourcing. Presently these corporations are sitting on $2.2 trillion in untaxed profits, which is costing the American taxpayer almost $800 billion in lost tax revenue if like in 2006 they are allowed to bring the funds back at 5-1/4% taxation. Those conglomerates want to bring those funds back into the US tax free, which means $1 trillion in lost taxes, taking advantage of the current financial situation in the US. Five years ago Congress passed legislation allowing $350 billion to be returned to the US at 5-1/4% taxation, not the normal 35%, because these corporations said they would use the funds to create jobs. Very few jobs were created and a large part of the funds were used to purchase company stock, which rose in value, allowing the officers of these corporations to sell stock from options and make billions of dollars in profit for themselves. These are the same corporations that have been responsible for the loss of 11.7 million jobs, the loss of good paying jobs 450,000 American companies and the loss of hundreds of billions of dollars in tax revenue."
