    What do expert economists say ?

    If you Goggle: dollar collapse, you will find over 3 million articles on the Internet about this timely subject. Many opinions are based on the observations of recognized expert economists and pragmatic futurists. Pay attention to other people's point of view, then decide for yourself.

    The issues related to the collapse of our national currency are highly controversial. There is no single doomsday scenario consensus, but clearly, the world of global finance has changed radically in the last decade.

    We are now seeing an increase in "doomsday preppers", who are investing their time and money to get ready for an unthinkable near-future disaster, of one type or another. We do not agree with everything that paranoid preppers are doing, but people who project our current trends toward economic collapse do have reason to be concerned:

    Since Bush / Cheney took office in 2001, and turned USA from a Clinton / Gore budget surplus to historically-high deficit spending, the U.S. dollar has lost roughly 85% of its purchasing power, relative to the value of gold. In 2001, it took $250 dollars to buy one ounce of gold. In 2012, the price of gold hovered in the $1650 to $1750 range (+ / -). The intrinsic value of gold has not changed one penny. Insane U.S. government-and-corporation policies have already caused the value of the dollar to collapse.

    America is a country with about 4.5% of Earth's population, but we selfishly-and-inefficiently consume 25% of the world's finite non-renewable resources. As the value of the U.S. dollar evaporates, it is becoming much-more expensive for us to import petroleum, raw materials, food, and manufactured goods from other countries. With an explosion of human population, American obese gluttony is clearly unfair and immoral.

    THIS ONGOING, NON-LEARNING STUPIDITY IS WITHOUT A DOUBT
    COMPLETELY UNSUSTAINABLE FOR MUCH LONGER !

    From 2002 until 2012, the U.S. dollar declined 55% against the euro, because U.S. debt nearly tripled from $5.9 Trillion to $16 Trillion. Europe has its own set of catastrophic economic problems (including a suicidal debt crisis), but since 2008, America has led the way toward the great worldwide recession.

    We live on a round world - We cannot take sides - We are not an isolated community

    What we do to anyone else or Earth, we do unto ourselves

    "You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war" - Albert Einstein

    Regardless of our empty words, our actions prove that we love perpetual war, much more than prolonged peace

    A single serious global event could now trigger the worst worldwide depression in all of human history

    Issues with Iran and North Korea (and many others) are now potential economic-collapse trigger events

    The U.S. Federal Reserve Bank continues to print tons of worthless paper (and electronic) currency, which terribly dilutes the value of all forms of dollar-based financial assets (cash, savings, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, pension plans, trust funds, etc.). Their nominal value may stay the same, but their purchasing power is rapidly declining (i.e., "inflation": food, fuel, imported goods, etc.).

    This FACT is NOT speculation about what may happen in the future. It is hard, fast, well-documented, irrefutable, recent history.

    When the Fed says that inflation is only 2% - IT IS A CLEARLY-DOCUMENTED, BALD-FACED LIE!

    In 2011, the U.S. cost of living was the worst in history. Wages are NOT keeping up (except for the greedy top 1% of American like Mitt Romney, who pay much lower tax rates than middle-income Americans). America is a regressive "plutocracy" - ruled by the wealthy 1% - NOT a progressive democracy - led by the need for the greater good of the majority. Our 10,000-page U.S. income tax system provides huge tax breaks and loopholes for multimillionaires and regressively penalizes the working poor. The richest Americans own one half of America's wealth, but only pay one third of our taxes.

    After World War II, (under Republican President Dwight Eisenhower) the wealthiest Americans paid 91% income tax. For three decades, USA prospered (rich and middle class alike) and our infrastructure grew rapidly (Interstate highways, power grid, manufacturing, exports, housing, cars, etc.). In most families with children, mom stayed home to care for the children, and only dad needed to work outside the home. There were far less single-parent households. Crime rates were low. Children respected policemen. Morality was high, and we needed a fraction of the expensive prisons that we have today.

    And then Ronald Reagan slashed the income tax rates for his wealthy supporters. He ended Carter's plan for energy independence. Reagan slashed spending on infrastructure development and public education. Reagan promised to balance the budget, but in order to pay for tax breaks for the top 1% of Americans, Reagan ran up more national debt than any previous President. His legacy is the mess we still have decades later, made much worse by Bush / Cheney's even larger tax breaks for the wealthy.

    Our shortsighted inept government is ENCOURAGING income inequality, and the rapid decline in the value of the dollar, so in the future they can repay our domestic-and-international debt with even cheaper (essentially worthless) dollars. Accumulating and holding dollar-based financial assets is a really dumb idea for Americans, and for foreign countries. Everyone holding dollars is rapidly losing purchasing power every month. A $100 bill that was printed in 2001, will purchase far less goods and services today - and even less than that in the near future. Soon after the predictable economic collapse, $100 may not even purchase a gallon of gasoline.

    Do NOT invest your time or money in dollar-based savings, stock, gold, silver, guns or ammunition!

    Instead, invest what is left of your life in high-value timeless efforts, like building goodwill, and a mutually-supportive LOCAL community that is as self-sufficient as is possible, without dependency on any petroleum or other imports. Leave a valuable legacy for posterity.

    Fulfill our Creator's plan to live a good life on Earth, and we will have nothing to fear when it is complete

    The following is NOT meant to be all negative gloom and doom - It has a silver lining

    We merely present many well-documented historical proven facts about the unsustainable suicidal path we are now on.

    Our goal in providing this free collection of alarming information is that you will laugh along with us at the world's current counterproductive stupidity, and allow this awareness to motivate the radical shovel-ready beneficial mutually-supportive sustainable-community lifestyle changes that we propose.

    If you don't agree with everything we suggest, please allow this material to provoke thoughtful development of your own compelling vision of a superior future, and a pragmatic pro-active plan of action for your family's survival.

    Do not become depressed. Never give up. Do not wait for those who created our problems to solve them - THEY CANNOT!

    A better new dawn is on the horizon. (See our specific solutions listed on the right) Become part of the pro-active revolution.

    Today's clouds have sparkling silver linings - IF we are open to our own radical reinvention potential.

    Learn from the mistakes of the past, but do NOT allow bad history to prevent you from reaching your full future potential.

     

    We are what we imagine. Everything we will become begins with our imagination. With our images we create the world.

    Without a compelling vision of a superior future, the people will perish. Help others look forward to a happy tomorrow.

    Recent rapid decline can and MUST be reversed - IF we have the collective political will to do what is long overdue.

    A truly-democratic free society has the unique ability for radical non-violent revolution - IF we have a SHARED VISION.

     

    Our 99% majority CAN reverse the suicidal trends created by the oppressive, selfish, wealth-accumulation Top 1%.

    Patriots must be prepared to defend our nation against pervasive greedy corporate-and-government destructive corruption.

    Study the following cause-and-effect issues. Become The Solution, not the problem. Everyone must do their part.

     

    Recent Roller-Coaster Ride of U.S. Dysfunctional Political and Economic Instability

    (1) There was an abrupt negative change in the August 2011 30-year low-yielding U.S. bond auction. By December 14, 2011 the yield on the 30-year long bond was only 2.9% - below its 200-day moving average. U.S. T bills have been among the worst investments most people can make.

    The $16 billion bond auction had the lowest level of indirect foreign bidders, since February 2008. The hesitance toward buying long bonds was shown by indirect bidders taking just 12.2% of the sale. That is significantly lower than the recent 39.1% average. If this trend continues, soon USA will NOT be able to borrow money from any foreign creditor. (Primary dealers are required to take any leftover securities - They had to purchase nearly half the $16 billion offering, which is a bad predictor of our declining economic future.)

    The yield on U.S. Treasury 10-year bonds subsequently fell below 2%. I cannot imagine why anyone would tie up their dollars for 10 years at 2%, while the value of the dollar is declining so very rapidly in the middle of worldwide economic turmoil.

    Our previous foreign creditors do NOT want to loan America money for the long term - They are NOT STUPID

    They rightly believe that USA is a declining investment, with an increasing probability of economic collapse

    IF no one will loan USA any money, we will have to immediately slash our deficit-spending
    federal budget overnight by more-than 40% - Causing Instant Economic Collapse

    (2) Following the do-nothing Congress Tea-Party-triggered Debt Ceiling debacle, the DJIA had its worst day since December 1, 2008 - during the Bush / Cheney-deficit-spending recession. DIVIDED WE FELL !

    (3) On August 8, 2011, the DJIA closed at 10,810, On July 21, 2011, the DJIA had closed 17% higher at 12,724 - only 11 trading days earlier.
    The week of September 19, 2011, the DJIA had its worst loss since the October 2008 collapse. Even gold declined significantly.

    (4) August 8th was the sixth-worst DJIA point loss in history - There were 30 times more stock market sell orders than buy orders.

    (5) The economic instability "Volatility Index" (VIX) shot up 60% - to the same level that it was in September 2008 - which predicted The Bush / Cheney Great Recession, loss of millions of jobs, reduced tax revenues, increased unemployment expenditures, bankruptcies, foreclosures, and a rapid worldwide economic crash. For four days the DJIA rose or fell over 400 points per day - FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY.

    Long-term stock "investors" want a steady rise in the market - They hate uncertainty. Short-term parasitic "traders in derivative stock options" love volatility - They make money when our country crashes. Their motivation is perverse and anti-American. Gambling on the failure of the U.S. economy makes the rate of decline even worse. Europe has similar problems. They are considering banning "short sales", where billion-dollar-a-year parasites profit greatly when a country's economy fails. The Wall-Street-owned U.S. Congress will probably never consider such legislation.

    During times of high volatility, long-term investors and companies withhold their cash, which further reduces employment opportunities, and reduces tax revenues - increasing our unpayable deficit. U.S. companies are sitting on well-over $2 Trillion in cash, which would greatly benefit our entire economy, IF it was invested wisely in building sustainable "green" future infrastructure.

    Our government does NOT need to spend taxpayer funds or borrow money to accomplish this goal. USA merely needs to set the right future goals, like Clinton / Gore did with putting the Internet in public schools in 1993 (which happened in only 8 years without public funding).

    We need a Shared Compelling Future Vision of a More-Prosperous Future, driven by a world-class expanding infrastructure foundation - Like the privately-developed Internet and smart technologies, we need a nation of motivated innovators, who share a vision that the world's best days are yet to come - This is certainly not true today.

    Ask yourself, WHO WILL PROVIDE THE PROTOTYPE FOR OUR OUTSTANDING FUTURE?

    (6) The yield on the 2-year U.S. Treasury bill fell to its all-time historical low. Big Ben Bernanke announced that he would intervene and do what the Federal Reserve Banks could to keep interest rates near zero percent for two more years - Discouraging saving, and encouraging MORE debt, which is what created our debt crisis in the first place!

    After Bernanke's announcement in August 2011, mortgage interest rates fell to a 15-year low. But even so, new mortgage applications also fell to a 15-year low - Americans could not afford low-priced houses with exceptionally low interest rates. When real estate values are declining, it is stupid to own a declining large asset that robs you of lifetime net worth..

    Throughout most of the 20th century after The Great Depression, real estate was a great appreciating asset to build net worth for retirement. People's homes were like an ATM that they could draw endless money from. BUT, since 2007, Bush / Cheney easy-home-ownership policies and failure to regulate sub-prime high-risk mortgages resulted in significant LOSS of net worth - costing Americans billions of dollars in home-ownership equity. Tax deductions for home mortgage interest caused too many people to buy a more-expensive house than they needed (or could afford). Many U.S. homes now have mortgages that are higher than the market value of the property. Refinancing is allowing people to enter new mortgages for 125% of the value of their home - increasing the probability of default and foreclosure. There are over 4 million foreclosed home or ones with a mortgage that is as least 3 months overdue. Even artificially-low interest rates have NOT corrected the real-estate-based recession, which has badly damaged our entire financial system (beyond repair?).

    As house prices fall, fewer people want to own depreciating assets. Fewer buyers mean even lower prices - in a downward snowball cascade. Even low interest rates do NOT motivate potential home buyers. Home construction has fallen precipitously - lowering national GDP and tax revenues at a time when welfare payments, food stamps and unemployment have rapidly risen. Construction unemployment is near 20% - leaving many families with nothing but welfare income - a heavy burden on all taxpayers. Less nationwide income means less money to spend to keep our failing economy from bankruptcy.

    If deficit spending created our 2011 crash, then artificially-low interest rates and MORE UNPAYABLE DEBT PASSED ON TO OUR INNOCENT CHILDREN IS THE OPPOSITE OF THE SOLUTION

    Representative Ron Paul: "We have a failed monetary system with interest rates that are way lower than they should be - encourages malinvestment and debt."

    Failed Presidential Candidate Rick Perry essentially stated that if Bernanke did anything to help the American economy (and benefit the Obama Administration) before the November 2012 election, Perry would consider it "Treason" (which is traditionally punishable by death). Rick threatened that Bernanke would be treated badly in Texas.

    Rick Perry is essentially illiterate and does not know what the U.S. Constitution definition of "Treason" is. His stupid remarks were attacked by high-level Republicans.

    Most Tea Party Terrorists (like radical Rick Perry and insane Michele Bachmann) would like to see the American economy and government collapse, rather than Obama win in 2012.

    (7) The price of gold rose to a record high over $1788 USD per ounce on August 10, and gold traded at a speculative high of $1888 on August 19, 2011. This is a clear signal that the U.S. Dollar is rapidly becoming WORTHLESS as Bernanke creates trillions of worthless new dollars out of thin air. Fed "Quantitative Easing" stole value from every U.S. dollar holder.

    The price of gold was at an all-time high, as worldwide central banks dumped worth less U.S. Dollars and accumulated gold reserves. The speculative risk premium for gold was over $300 / oz. It was long overdue for a correction, but the decade-long rapid radical rise in gold (as the dollar continues to decline) is irrefutable. Do you think that gold will ever return to the 2001 $250 / oz price? Of course not.

    When the price of gold rose rapidly to just above $1900 per ounce, we predicted that it would have a correction. We strongly recommend AGAINST investing in gold (see discussion below). We were not surprised when gold fell to $1600 per ounce, but even $1500 per ounce would be a far cry above the $250 per ounce that it was when Bush / Cheney first took office.

    (8) Many economists (including Big Ben Bernanke) predicted that the U.S. economy would magically snap back when the price of oil dropped below $100 / barrel. Oil controls the price of transporting almost everything. Despite the fact that China and India are rapidly expanding their number of petroleum-powered cars, and the worldwide supply of oil is Past Peak and declining, the price of oil fell below $82 per barrel in August, 2011. Instead of transportation stocks rallying on the news, the Dow Jones Transport Index FELL to a 52-week low.

    By the end of August 2011, the demand for gasoline fell to a 9-year low - predicting a serious recession. This low-demand was even less than during the 2008 Bush / Cheney $4-per-gallon gas, and The Great Recession that it triggered.

    In the past, when the price of oil declines significantly, it has almost always predicted a significant near-term recession.

    Michele Bachmann made the outrageous statement that with her as U.S. president, gasoline would fall below $2 per gallon at the pump. Newt Gingrich promised $2-to-$2.50 gas.

    These Republican LIARS are way beyond laughable. The last time gas was below $2 was after the terrible Bush / Cheney 2008 global recession, which blew a $15 Trillion hole in the U.S. economy. Many hard-working Americans could not afford to travel or transport their goods. 1,000 American trucking firms and 8 U.S. airlines went bankrupt. 1,000 financial institutions failed. Millions lost their jobs, homes, healthcare, retirement investments, opportunity to go to college, and sense of self worth.

    The price of oil fell from the peak $147 per barrel ($4.11 / gallon at the pump) in the summer of 2008, down to a well-below-market unsustainable $33 per barrel - resulting in short-term gas price below $2 (before the nationwide recovery began under Obama in 2009).

    U.S. GDP fell 3.86% in the third quarter of 2008, and then GDP fell 9% more in the fourth quarter.

    Bush / Cheney's outrageous oil-corrupted energy policies created The Worst U.S. Recession since the Great Depression

    Will gullible American voters be dumb enough to return control of our national energy policy to oil-corrupted Republicans?

    To maintain $2 / gallon gasoline, the American GDP would have to CONTINUALLY FALL over 3% per year - Perpetual recession on a downhill dirt road toward economic, national and social suicide.

    Is perpetual recession what Republicans want to impose on you and the entire world?

    Would that make them as proud as the August 2011 Tea Party stock market crash did?

    What kind of idiot could possibly believe that $2 or $2.50 gasoline pump price can be sustained,
    while petroleum demand from China and India is rapidly increasing, and worldwide oil supply declines?

     

    Today, the U.S. Dollar purchasing power (relative to the gold standard) is less than one half of what it was when gasoline was below $2 per gallon at the end of 2008. $2 gas in 2013 would be like $1 gas in 2008 (Not even remotely possible in a growing economy).

    A major portion of Tea Party and Republican campaign funding bribes come from Koch brothers and other Big Oil interests. Republican Presidential candidates preached that they would miraculously cut gasoline pump price in half by (1) deregulating their oil-industry benefactors, and (2) encouraging significant increases in domestic Drill Baby Drill (nonsense). They claimed that Obama was preventing new oil drilling. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    During the last four years of the terrible Bush / Cheney recession administration, drilling and domestic oil production steadily declined. Under Obama, they steadily increased. Under Obama, America's dependence on imported oil fell every year. Many Republicans are well-documented oil-corrupted bald-faced liars.

    The time required to find and bring new oil discoveries to the pump is about 7 years or more. Non-partisan government energy agencies predict that increased domestic drilling might reduce the price reduction of oil by only three cents by 2030. The American economy is likely to collapse long before then. Drill Baby Drill is the path toward HIGHER gasoline pump prices, and inevitable economic collapse.

    All inexpensive shallow domestic U.S. oil was depleted decades ago. USA passed its Peak Oil Production in 1970.

    New drilling (like BP Gulf of Mexico) must be very deep, which is quite expensive compared to 1960's U.S. shallow oil production - before we hit Peak Oil and began to decline.

    The rising price of Past Peak international oil is determined by the global marketplace supply and demand (plus greedy parasitic Wall Street speculation by Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and others).

    IF Republican big oil corruption sources produce more domestic oil at a much-higher future cost, will they patriotically sell it to Americans for one half of the current pump price? HELL NO! The greedy big oil companies who openly bribe all Tea Party politicians will sell their more-expensive oil to the highest bidder on the international marketplace:

    Current U.S. Profit-Motivated Oil EXPORTS

    20 years ago, oil was not among the top 25 U.S. exports. In 2011, American petroleum products became the NUMBER ONE AMERICAN EXPORT - an increase of 300% more than in 2010. Under Obama, USA is becoming more energy efficient. Our demand for oil is happily declining as our economy is slowly recovering. Our domestic petroleum production is rising. Oil companies can sell their refined petroleum products outside of the U.S. for much higher prices than they can domestically - SO THEY DO.

    Only 58% of the oil being produced in USA today is consumed in America - That percentage is rapidly declining while pump price rises.

    If we want to increase the availability of oil at American gas pumps, we merely need to pay America's greedy oil company profiteers as much as they get for exporting it overseas. Republicans attack anyone who points out the obvious. Truth has no place in partisan politics. All that matters is wealth accumulation for the Top 1%.

    Alternatively, we could place high taxes on all petroleum product exports, which our oil-corrupted Congress will always refuse to do.

    Despite what lying politicians say, producing more oil domestically will NOT lower the price at the local pump

    Drill Baby Drill and the Keystone XL pipeline will merely increase profits for America's wealthy oil exporters

     

    Republicans obviously lie without shame when they say that the proposed environmentally-damaging Keystone XL pipeline (from the filthy Canadian tar sands down to the Port Arthur Texas refineries) will (1) increase the supply of gasoline at American pumps, and (2) lower the price to only $2.50 per gallon. The explosion of oil exports from Texas in 2011 PROVED conclusively that this will NOT BE TRUE.

    Port Authur is a tax-free export zone. Our government does NOT receive revenue for these oil exports, BUT America must suffer the significant environmental damage that the Keystone XL will surely cause. The original Keystone Canadian pipeline reported 14 oil spills in its first year-and-a-half of operation.

    To suggest that the Keystone XL will be "environmentally safe" is a huge proven lie

     

    Middle America currently has a glut of oil, which keeps the local pump price below the national average. Extending the Keystone pipeline from Cushing Oklahoma down to Port Authur, will eliminate the middle America glut, increase oil exports, increase oil company profits, and INCREASE THE PUMP PRICE FOR MIDDLE AMERICA. The only ones to benefit will be greedy oil companies, who badly corrupt our Congress with ongoing huge bribes.

    If Republicans honestly believe that the Keystone XL should be used to increase the availability of oil and lower gasoline price for American consumers, then they should be willing to support legislation to make sure that will happen. In 2012, Representatives Ed Markey, Shelly Berkley, Steve Cohen, Gerry Connolly, Henry Waxman, and Peter Welch, submitted a simple unambiguous amendment to the Keystone XL House Resolution 3900. It simply stated: "The Secretary of Energy shall ensure that any crude oil and bitumen transported by the Keystone XL pipeline, and all refined petroleum products whose origin was via importation of crude oil or bitumen by the Keystone XL pipeline, will be entered into domestic commerce for final disposition."

    All oil-corrupted Republicans voted AGAINST this very-necessary amendment - Proving that they know full well that the filthy products transported to Port Authur Texas would be EXPORTED for huge oil-company profits, and NOT benefit American consumers in any way - not even tax revenues. The Koch Brothers would be major beneficiaries. The Koch brothers "own" Tea Party Terrorist legislators.

    Why has the news media not made this a top-headline item?

    Because they profit greatly from oil company advertisements, and money spent on Republican campaign advertising!

     

    Air Pollution: Although Texas is mostly low-population-density wide open spaces, Texas has some of the worst air pollution in all of America. The American Lung Association has given their lowest-possible "F" grade for air pollution to the following Texas counties: Bexar , Brazoria, Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Galveston, Harris, Hood, Jefferson, Johnson, Parker, Tarrant, Travis. Many other counties received a "D". The Environmental Protection Agency has ruled against Texas multiple times for not enforcing Clean Air Act standards, but oil-corrupted Governor Rick Perry continues to regularly ignore EPA with impunity. Perry wants to eliminate the EPA and DOE, because of their regulations.

    Exposure to toxic pollution from petroleum refineries causes, contributes to, or exacerbates a wide variety of health conditions, including: asthma and other respiratory diseases, mental developmental disorders, neurological damage, brain tumors, birth defects, cancer, and premature painful death.

    A major portion of Texas air pollution already comes from the poorly-regulated high-capacity oil refineries along the Gulf Coast. The Keystone XL pipeline extension will more-than-double Texas refinery air pollution output. Americans will pay the huge environmental and health-damage price, but most of the refined petroleum products will be exported outside USA - American consumers will suffer all of the pain, but none of the gain.

    Texas Governor Rick Perry strongly supports the Rush Limbaugh / Koch brothers anti-science position that "Global Warming Is A Hoax." It is interesting to note that there were widespread droughts, crop loses, and devastating wildfires in Texas. In 2011, the annual average temperature in Texas was 5 degrees above their historical average. Anti-science Rick Perry still arrogantly says that Global Warming is not happening. He apparently cannot read a thermometer, or listen to the local weather report.

    The Keystone XL pipeline will significantly increase Texas greenhouse gas emissions

    The Dallas Morning News published that Rick Perry is an embarrassment to the entire state,
    and yet, Texas Republican voters keep reelecting Rick Perry again and again

    Existing Deadly Texas Oil Refineries

    Have Obama's compromises with Republicans improved his relationship with Congress, or support from voters?

     

    Are U.S. Oil companies in business to patriotically provide low-cost petroleum products for extremely-wasteful American SUV's? Absolutely NOT !

    Greedy oil company wealth-accumulation corporate charters clearly state that they are in business to make PROFIT (for their Top 1% owners)

    OIL COMPANY OWNERS DO NOT MIND KILLING MANY AMERICANS TO ACCOMPLISH THEIR SHORTSIGHTED SELFISH SINISTER GOAL

    Do YOU own any oil company stock, pensions or mutual funds?

    Do you drive a gas guzzler? Do you often fly on inefficient airplanes?

    Those who do support murder (of their own children) - Shame on them

     

    When America is consuming over 17 million barrels of oil per day, why do U.S. companies EXPORT three million barrels of finite past-peak oil per day? DEADLY PROFIT!

    Over two thirds of unpatriotic American oil exports leave the country from governor Rick Perry's Texas. The greedy oil industry owns low-I.Q. illiterate Rick Perry. He received $12 million in direct political bribes from oil companies, PLUS several times more than that from a handful of anonymous billionaire contributors to his super PAC's, (as a result of the corrupt "Citizens United" Republican-controlled Supreme Court decision.

    The American Petroleum Institute published their wish list of highly-profitable environmentally-damaging deregulation policy changes for the USA.

    Rick Perry re-published the API report as his energy plan for America. Tea Party Terrorist total-oil-industry political corruption is transparently obvious.

     

    How much profit is enough? In 2009, the U.S. oil company profit from refining one gallon of diesel fuel was $.39 (roughly 10% of the retail price).

    In 2010, the profit it rose to $.64 per gallon (about 16%). Oil companies did not have to build any new refineries for this huge windfall.

    Did YOUR net income increase 64% on the same capital investment in only one year? Are oil company profits in any way fair or equitable?

    In contrast to big oil 16% profit margin, the profit for people who assemble the Apple iPhone is only 1%.

    Many high-volume successful large American businesses do quite well on less than 5% profit margin.

    WalMart is growing rapidly with less than a 4% profit margin. Why do greedy oil companies need 16% per gallon?

    Are oil company huge profits for the Top 1% of the American plutocracy in any way justified, when nationwide unemployment remains over 8%?

    The top 5 U.S. oil companies' profit for the first half of 2011 was $71 Billion - Twice that on an annual basis

    What earthly justification is there for ultra-corrupt Republicans to insist on paying greedy oil companies Billions of dollars in totally-unnecessary ongoing taxpayer subsidies? Republicans consistently vote down recent attempts to end the irrational, unnecessary oil company subsidies.

     

    Americans tolerate our reverse "Robbing Hood" big-oil economy - Oil companies regressively steal from the poor to give to the Top 1% of wealth-accumulation oppressors.

    Parasitic Wall Street oil speculators make billions of dollars every year, while contributing almost nothing useful to society. Goldman Sachs stated that if speculation was removed from petroleum commodity markets, the pump price of gasoline would fall by $.56. This is bad enough, but we believe that their estimate understates the truth.

    Goldman Sachs is the worst of all oil speculators. They paid their "average" employee $430,700 per year (for helping destroy the U.S. economy in 2008). Taxpayers borrowed money from China to bailout Goldman, so they could pay huge bonuses to their employees. Did your congressional representatives do what you wanted them to do?

    Is there anything democratic about America's government? Is majority opinion worth anything at all?

    Both the Obama and Bush administrations were loaded with former Goldman Sachs executives - with huge conflicts of interest

    Is this at all fair? Is it competitive is today's starving world? Will unrealistic, unpatriotic, greedy profit margins destroy the American economy soon?

    Almost every product Americans buy is transported to us in petroleum-powered trucks, trains, ships, or airplanes. Outrageously-profitable big oil companies essentially have a difficult-to-change infrastructure monopoly. They own our corrupt government and our failing unsustainable economy.

    Gullible non-learning people who vote for oil-corrupted politicians help accelerate America's rapid decline.

    The oil industry is the most profitable, greedy, wealth-accumulation business on the planet. They are the world's largest source of political corruption (especially the Koch brothers, Exxon, and BP USA). The U.S. Congress SUBSIDIZES their immoral oppressive regressive profits. Tea Party Terrorist Republicans refuse to end the unnecessary Ronald Reagan oil company subsidies. Burning oil is shortsighted, unhealthy, and unsustainable, as is the entire U.S. failing economy. The Keystone XL pipeline will make this much worse. NASA climate science expert says that the Keystone XL pipeline is "GAME OVER" for global warming.

     

    Should taxpayers borrow Trillions of dollars from our grandchildren to increase our shortsighted addiction to rapidly-diminishing supplies of oil?

    74% of Americans polled (including a majority of Republican voters) want to end all subsidies for immorally-profitable oil companies.

    Oil-corrupted legislators CLEARLY REJECT THE WELL-DOCUMENTED WILL OF THE PEOPLE that they were elected to serve.

    Should we STOP subsidizing our suicidal addiction to unsustainable fossil fuels, and divert that money toward building a sustainable future?

    Is increasing America's petroleum product exports good for our overburdened consumers? How much profit do oil companies really need?

    Should we continue to subsidize fat-cat big-oil profiteers who insanely EXPORT finite, past-peak, nearly-exhausted, American oil ? ? ?

     

    Oil-addicted Americans want lower oil prices. When our oil-corrupted government subsidizes big oil, our addiction to unsustainable oil increases. We buy more cars, trucks, machines, trains, ships and airplanes that depend on declining oil supplies, instead of investing in proven long-term-sustainable energy solutions. Growing demand makes oil prices and inflation increase. The value of the buying power U.S. dollar rapidly declines. Imports cost more. Our energy security decreases. We transfer trillions of dollars of net worth to oil-rich countries that often provide funds to terrorists who want to destroy us. Oil executives get richer, while 99.9% of Americans suffer greatly. Summer 2008 $4 / gallon gas triggered the 2008 Great Recession, which blew a $15 Trillion hole in the U.S. economy.

    Is there ANY rational justification for subsidizing oil companies - the most profitable business on Earth today?

    We must immediately STOP subsidizing everything that is clearly unsustainable, and allow the market to determine what is best

    The ONLY energy subsidies should be for the development of non-polluting, sustainable, free-fuel energy source infrastructure

     

    Americans are used to paying well-below-worldwide-average prices for insanely-subsidized unsustainable gasoline

    The global demand for petroleum products is growing rapidly every year. Many countries are used to paying $7 to $8 per gallon for gasoline and diesel fuel. They do NOT drive grossly-inefficient American SUV's. (They make much better energy conservation decisions than Americans do. Many countries now have strong tax incentives to phase out petroleum-based transportation.)

    In 2011, U.S. oil companies can transport three million barrels a day of American oil to other emerging prosperous countries and MAKE MORE PROFIT than they can by selling it in the USA. American oil company exports are rapidly accelerating (to the growing unpatriotic detriment of all U.S. oil consumers).

    U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu accurately stated that to solve the American energy crisis, we need to allow the price of oil to rise to be equal to the global fair market price. Oil-corrupted Republicans ridiculed that idea (since it would reduce the U.S. demand for oil, and reduce their bribes from big oil companies).

    If the price of gasoline and diesel in America rose to the worldwide average, oil companies would STOP EXPORTING AMERICAN OIL TO OTHER COUNTRIES.

    If the U.S. price at the pump somehow fell to only $2 per gallon, OIL EXPORTS WOULD DRAMATICALLY INCREASE! Is that what USA needs?

    Michele Bachmann, and other DRILL BABY DRILL IDIOTS, do NOT have the first clue how the real-world oil industry is based on PROFIT. You did NOT see any oil industry advertisements saying: "Elect Michele Bachmann and we will lower the price of gasoline to half of our production costs."

    The shortsighted Republican Keystone XL environmental-disaster pipeline project will increase U.S. oil exports and oil company profits, while badly damaging the Earth and the American economy.

     

    Michele Bachmann, voted against ending the billions of dollars a year of unnecessary taxpayer subsidies to big oil companies - the most profitable industry in the history of mankind.

    Let's suppose that oil-corrupted Bachmann continues down the path toward big-government socialism of the oil industry. Perhaps she would increase the taxpayer subsidy of oil companies to a Trillion dollars a year to bring the pump price down to $2 / gallon. (1) Where would the Trillion dollars come from? And (2) Would $2 gas cause Americans to waste even more of the world's past-peak declining oil supply, so we would run out altogether even sooner?

    Does anyone who ever supported Michele Bachmann have a functional brain? Apparently NOT!

    Although Michele was once the front runner the stupid Tea Party, when the Truth became apparent, her staff left her campaign, and the Tea Party asked her to withdraw from the presidential race - She became a huge embarrassment for the "Anyone but Romney" Tea Party terrorists, as did Rick Perry, and Herman Cain.

    Anyone who believes Michele Bachmann's $2-gas insanity is a dumber fool than she obviously is. (Much more detail about Michele's endless Big Lies below)

    (9) 2011 U.S. GDP growth fell to only 1.6%, as a direct result of the recent dysfunctional-federal-government stock market crash and federal spending cuts.

    Tea Party Republican obstructionism resulted in half-a-million federal, state, and local job losses, including police, firemen, and teachers.

    For 60 years, essentially every time GDP growth fell below 2%, there has been a recession immediately thereafter.

    The next worldwide recession with negative GDP growth may be worse than The 1930's Great Depression.

     

    Morgan Stanley slashed its global growth forecast for 2011 and 2012, saying the U.S. and the eurozone were "dangerously close to a recession . . . over the next 6 - 12 months . . . it won't take much in the form of additional shocks to tip the balance. A negative feedback loop between weak growth and soggy asset markets now appears to be in the making in Europe and the US."

    In contrast, Morgan Stanley left its 2011 growth forecast for China unchanged at 9% - China continues rapid growth and prosperity, while the U.S. and eurozone nose dive.

    If business-as-usual is rapidly declining - DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT - We are way overdue for radical reinvention of the U.S. economy, which oppresses the world.

    (10) The U.S. Trade Deficit rose in June 2011 to $53.07 billion from $50.83 billion in May. The rise in the trade deficit is bad news for the American economy, and the new level is VERY DANGEROUS. It increased 4.4% in only one month, and it was much worse than the $48.0 billion consensus expectation. Wall Street has been irrationally optimistic about the American economic recovery. Domestic manufacturing is continuing to decline, as greedy un-American corporations ship everything overseas. On a year-over-year basis, our total trade deficit was up 13.2% from $46.89 billion a year ago. The trade deficit is a measure of sending U.S. technology, jobs, and great wealth outside of our country, reducing domestic investment, jobs, and tax revenues - driving us ever deeper in unpayable debt.

    As our imports increase, and the value of the U.S. dollar plummets ever faster,
    everything is costing us more, and our standard of living continues to decline

    (11) Summer 2011 developments demonstrate that the global economy is in a "dangerous new phase . . . The stakes are clear: we risk seeing the fragile recovery derailed." - Christine Lagarde, International Monetary Fund managing director - August 27 The fundamental problem is that in advanced economies, weak growth and weak balance sheets (of governments, financial institutions, and households) are feeding negatively on each other. Balance sheet problems will worsen, fiscal sustainability will be threatened, and policy instruments will lose their ability to sustain the recovery.

    Our current downward economic trends are CLEARLY UNSUSTAINABLE
    Something drastic must change very rapidly, very soon

    These large marketplace signals (and more) are no small economic speed bump
    THE WORST IS YET TO COME !

    The recent stock market decline was not flash-crash panic selling - It began before the S&P Credit Rating downgrade. It was an orderly sell off by investors around the world who have good reason to believe that the dysfunctional do-nothing U.S. government and greedy corporations do NOT have a clue how to deal with our current suicidal economic crises.

    More unpayable debt and creating trillions of new dollars out of thin air are the SOURCE of the crises, not the SOLUTION.

    The world is aware of a potential near-term U.S. and European economic collapse, and the probable global impact.

    The G7 and G20 promised to do everything possible to prevent worldwide monetary collapse - Their track record is abysmal.

    Can the G7, G20, and Ben Bernanke do enough to stop the imminent economic tsunami devastation? We will soon see.

     

    President Obama made a familiar blame-shifting speech about the rapid economic decline during his watch, but there is little indication in 2011 that America's dysfunctional divided partisan politicians have changed ANY of their Democrat, Republican, or Tea Party intransigent talking points, or that a rational solution for the delicate American (and global) economy is in the foreseeable future. "It often takes more courage to change ones opinion than to keep it." - Willy Brandt

     

    On August 11, 2011, President Obama spoke at Holland, Johnson Controls, Michigan and the DJIA rebounded 423 points. He discussed what he is doing from the executive branch that does not require congressional approval. Barack also outlined specific proposals that will require the Congress to act. He promised a long-overdue detailed specific job creation plan in September. http://www.whiteouse.gov/the-press-office/2011/08/11/remarks-president-johnson-controls-inc

    "There is nothing wrong with our country. There is something wrong with our politics. . . . The only thing keeping us back is our politics. The only thing preventing these bills from being passed is the refusal of some folks in Congress to put the country ahead of party. There are some in Congress right now who would rather see their opponents lose than see America win. And that has to stop. It's got to stop. We're supposed to all be on the same team, especially when we're going through tough times. We can't afford to play games - not right now, not when the stakes are so high for our economy."

     

    The Rapidly-Rising Price of Gold

    The rapid rise of the price of gold above $1888 USD per ounce on August 19, 2011 was a crystal-clear window into the truth. The free-market price of gold trumps the economic lies and deceit being portrayed by inept central bankers (Bernanke, et.al.), corrupt politicians, the greedy corporations that own Congress, and by billion-dollar-per-year Wall Street hedge-fund managers and investment advisors.

    Central banks can NOT create gold out of thin air - the way they do our worthless fiat-currency U.S. dollars. The U.S. Constitution STILL says that gold and silver are the ONLY legal tender in the USA. No Amendment or legislative bill has ever changed that persistent truth. Worthless paper and electronic dollars are clearly unconstitutional. Creating money out of thin air is clearly criminal behavior, and yet, the federal government and central banker criminals go unpunished.

     

    Section 4 of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution emphatically states: "The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, shall not be questioned." Beyond any shadow of doubt, those in Congress who voted against paying our legal debt obligations and promises are TRAITORS who violated their Oath Of Office to defend the U.S. Constitution.

    The criminal impeachable U.S. government is now in direct violation of multiple points of our Constitution. The Oath Of Office is often violated with arrogant impunity by almost ALL U.S. officials. 82% of Americans disagree with what the U.S. Congress is doing. They have ceased to represent the people, and they only represent big-money contributors to their campaigns.

    When baby boomers were growing up, they were taught to fear Communists. In college, they fought against the senseless Vietnam war. Today's 20-somethings fear what their own government is doing to their nation, and to their children's future.

    Three quarter's of Americans polled said that they would like to remove 100% of today's politicians and start all over again.

    Will Congress vote to impeach themselves? - They have made themselves above the Law and the Constitution.

     

    Our current catastrophic crises were created by both political parties over decades. No single party incurred all of our $14.5 Trillion of unpayable debt - which is STILL increasing at well-over-a-trillion-dollars per year - for the foreseeable future.

    At the current unsustainable pace, U.S. national unpayable debt will DOUBLE IN ONLY TEN YEARS

    Long before that can happen, China, Japan, Saudi Arabia and others will STOP LOANING USA MONEY TO SUPPORT OUR RECKLESS SPENDING SPREE. We are on the very verge of that deadly cliff today. Our toes hang over the self-imposed suicidal point of no return. Neither Republicans nor Democrats have a plan to balance our annual budget before 2040. On our current path, USA WILL COLLAPSE long before then.

    A Balanced Budget (like we had under Bill Clinton) would now require over a 40% immediate reduction in government spending, which would destroy millions more American jobs, result in widespread starvation, reduce tax revenue, eliminate most social services, slash our military budget, and greatly-increase unpayable government liabilities (like unemployment insurance, veterans benefits, etc.)

    45 million Americans are already on Food Stamps, just to avoid starvation (one out of seven Americans - an increase of 11% above one year earlier). Most of the 45 million would love to have a full-time living-wage job with basic survival benefits for their families.

    Despite fantastic new technology and increased productivity, our greedy capitalistic system cannot provide for hard-working people.

    What will happen when 90 million Americans are on Food Stamps (soon)?

    The current steep downward trend is clearly unsustainable. Can radical revolution of the working-class masses be very far away? We HOPE it will be non-violent.

    Given America's current circumstances, there is no conceivable political / economic scenario that will avoid serious near-term pain, and avoid a deep recession (which will probably be much worse than in 2008).

    Cut, Cut, Cutting Government Spending may be sound fiscal policy, but it will put millions more Americans out of work, devalue real estate and the almost-worthless U.S. Dollar, and make it even more difficult for America to compete in the global marketplace.

    The international market price of gold is a clear indicator of the rapidly-declining purchasing power of the U.S. Dollar

    No short-sighted dysfunctional gridlocked government partisan politics, or policy, controls the free-market price of gold.

    The intrinsic worldwide REAL value of gold has been constant since pharaohs ruled Egypt.

    When it takes more U.S. dollars to buy one ounce of gold, it does NOT mean that gold is worth more - IT MEANS THAT THE FIAT-CURRENCY U.S. DOLLAR IS WORTH LESS ! ! !

    The full faith and credit of USA has been BADLY DAMAGED BY OUR CORRUPT ARGUMENTATIVE CONGRESS. Some financial institutions are predicting accelerating devaluation of the U.S. Dollar, causing the price of gold to rises above $2,500 / oz in a year or so. IF this happens, the U.S. Dollar will be worth only 10% of what it was when Bush / Cheney took office in 2001.

    There is no limit to America's current insane suicidal economic irresponsibility

    The whole world is rapidly learning the truth about the collapse of the U.S. Dollar - You can already see the irrefutable truth in the USD price of gold. When Bush / Cheney took office in 2001, gold was $250 USD / ounce. At $1788 / oz on August 10, 2011, the purchasing power of dollars (relative to the price of gold and other fixed-value commodities) was worth only 14% of what dollars were worth one decade earlier - when Bill Clinton had a budget surplus, and USA was paying off the previous Reagan and G.H.W. Bush national debt.

    There is absolutely NO indication that the dysfunctional divided 2011 U.S. government is capable of making the radical changes necessary to avoid the U.S. Dollar becoming worth essentially ZERO in the near future. The U.S. Dollar has undeniably already lost 86% of its value (past tense). Losing the remaining 14.5% is only one small step in the same direction. Accumulating and holding dollars is an extremely-dumb thing to do.

    The infantile argumentative handling of the unprecedented 2011 U.S. Debt Ceiling crisis, and the first-time-ever S&P downgrade of the U.S. Credit Rating, were trivial events compared to the predictable (near term?) collapse of the U.S. Dollar.

    As our previous Emerald Eco-City predictions continue to come true - THE WORST IS YET TO COME.

    There is very-little chance of a dramatic economic recovery, as we cut, cut, cut, investment in our children's future, and burden them with ever-increasing unpayable levels of debt and unfunded entitlement benefits (without means testing for billionaires).

    Those who are aware will prepare - Those who do not prepare will soon despair

    Understanding the underlying cause and effect of the near-term collapse of the U.S. Dollar does NOT fit in a 30-second sound bite, or a 128-character tweet. It takes an attention span greater than five minutes. Appreciating the Emerald Eco-City shovel-ready solutions for our impending worldwide economic catastrophe will require in-depth thought by open-minded intelligent leaders. (It has taken 3 decades to develop the details.)

    I AM STILL AN OPTIMIST, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary

    I grew up in America with all of the bountiful gifts of Freedom, Liberty, great education, wonderful parents, and explosive growth of never-before unprecedented technology and productivity advances.

    There were tears of great pride and inspiration when I watched 12 Americans walk on the Moon in real time, and USA establish a used car lot up there with five innovative electric vehicles. (smile)

    I thought America's Space Age and Abundant Clean Energy Future had Enormous Immediate Potential, but I was quite wrong - Business-as-usual, status-quo obstructionists, and corrupt politicians badly dropped the ball, and failed to follow through after Nixon ended the gold standard in 1971, and the 19973 - 1979 OPEC oil crises made double-digit inflation explode.

    There were emotional tears in my eyes as I watched the last few Space Shuttle flights, with nothing on the near horizon to replace the obsolete 1980 space technology. The current head of NASA says that we badly mismanaged our space future. We now send money, technology, and jobs to Russia, just to hitch a ride to our Space Station - They raised their price for a one-person ticket to 465 million dollars.

    How insane is that! America has REALLY dropped the ball, on the game that WE invented. America is sadly becoming a lazy third-world nation with respect to manufacturing, technology innovation, and exploration, but our children are great at tweeting, porn, and video games.

    USA Peak Oil occurred exactly as predicted in 1970. The 1973-1979 OPEC oil embargoes triggered 600% gasoline price inflation in only 6 years ($.20 to $1.20 / gallon). Detroit FAILED to respond, and continued their downward decline (toward 2008 bankruptcy). Detroit still makes profit selling inefficient trucks and SUV's to gluttonous idiots, but Detroit loses money selling reasonable efficient cars that compete with Asia. Their terrible profit motives damage America, and yet American taxpayers had to bail them out so they can continue their deadly declining business-as-usual.

     

    Eight U.S. Presidents PROMISED Energy Independence, but
    EVERY LAST ONE FAILED TO DELIVER THEIR PROMISE

    The price of imported energy costs U.S. jobs, which devalue houses,
    and force our government and children into unpayable deep debt

    Trace the cause-and-effect backwards, and you'll see that most of
    today's many crises are based on insane energy policy corruption

    The largest influence on American politics is big oil company bribes

    Our most-corrupt politicians refuse to stop subsidizing the most-profitable companies in the world

    Fraudulent campaign promises are evil crimes against voters

     


    In stark contrast, I created, demonstrated, and presented pragmatic cost-effective Zero Energy Design® in 1979

    The decades-old science of Zero Energy Design®, and the energy-independence recommendations of the U.S. Department of Energy, have been ignored by almost-all greedy, non-learning, business-as-usual, inefficient American companies.

    To this very day, the U.S. STILL provides billions of dollars of immoral subsidies and tax breaks every year to the importers of foreign oil, who increase our deadly suicidal addiction, pollute the world, and provide huge funds to fanatical religious terrorists who want to destroy USA.

    Gross mismanagement of unsustainable energy and environmental damage are arguably the most serious man-made problems that we face today. Unemployment and gigantic unpayable debt are merely current symptoms of high-prices unsustainable energy stupidity.

    The unprecedented economic cost of imported oil, oil-business bribes of our congressmen, and our military expenditures to protect our foreign oil sources, have forces domestic spending cuts that have cost many millions of Americans their jobs, lifetime savings, and home foreclosures. Our oil-corrupted Republican House of Representatives SUBSIDIZES unsustainable oil addiction. Could any political policy thing be more INSANE or damaging to the majority of all Americans?

    The Accelerating Radical Rate Of Progressive Technical and Social Innovation

    Any observant person over thirty years old is aware that the rate of worldwide change is rapidly accelerating. It is a non-linear, exponential compound growth rate. There are endless reasons for this including: globalization, satellite-and-fiber-optics telecommunication, integrated circuit computer miniaturization / acceleration / cost reduction, the worldwide web / Internet, air-and-sea trade and transportation, supply / demand of finite non-renewable resources, etc. One innovation builds on another, making it ever-increasingly difficult for slow-moving society to keep up with the potential applications of fantastic new technology.

    People around the world see the unsustainable irrational squanderlust American lifestyle and want it for themselves.

    USA is a global role model of what NOT to do

    Exploding first-time gasoline car sales in China and India are dramatic examples of worldwide suicidal societal trends.

    There clearly is NOT enough oil available to meet predictable increases in demand. The same is true for all non-renewable resources (lithium, etc.).

    China is spending 9% of their Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on competitive-future infrastructures. America's infrastructure is obsolete, crumbling, and insufficiently maintained. USA needs to immediately spend over $2 Trillion just on our failing roads and bridges. America is spending less that 2% of GDP on investing in the future, and big-money-corrupted government wants to significantly reduce that. We could provide millions of good jobs for U.S. construction workers, IF our government would shift many billions of dollars of unneeded subsidies for oil companies and billionaires into building up our infrastructure for a superior future.

    If 7 billion people on Earth started squandering finite non-renewable highly-polluting resources at the rate that Americans do, we would need the resources of more than 7 Earths, just to survive. Can compound economic growth continue much longer? NO!

    If current population compound growth rates continue, there will soon be one person standing on every square meter of Earth, and no room for anyone to lay down to sleep.

    SUCH A WORLD CANNOT POSSIBLY EVER EXIST - Something Dramatic Is About To Happen EVERYWHERE

    What new forms of government and economy will be born from the ashes of the old? Have we learned anything at all?

    Things MUST change dramatically, and the change must happen very soon - Faster than ever before in all of Earth's human history.

    Today's outdated slow-to-change, suicidal, unsustainable empires MUST COLLAPSE, and make way for a more-sustainable, rational future.

    Fantastic modern technology and greatly-improved productivity mean that humans have the POTENTIAL to live much-more-efficiently than ever before.

    We already have the technology to totally eliminate poverty and unnecessary suffering around the world
    BUT, do we have the compassion and love to make it happen quickly?

    Gene Roddenberry's Compelling Vision: "Reality is incredibly larger, infinitely more exciting, than the flesh-and-blood vehicle we travel in here. The more you read science fiction, the more you realize that you and the universe are part of the same thing. Science knows still practically nothing about the real nature of matter, energy, dimension, or time; and even less about those remarkable things called LIFE and THOUGHT. But whatever the meaning and purpose of this universe, you are a legitimate part of it. And since you are part of the all that is, part of its purpose, there is more to you than just this brief speck of existence. You are just a visitor here in this time and this place, a traveler through it."

Dollars will probably become worthless in the near future anyway. I love America's POTENTIAL. I want it to survive and thrive, and overcome all of our current criminal corruption. The solution will have to be a radical revival of what America stands for - Equitable, productive, shared prosperity in harmony with Nature, and with each other.

    If you are or are not an American, I hope this material will help you avoid or mitigate our current calamity.

    In the 21st century, we live in an Apocalyptic Culture of many greedy profiteers. Hollywood makes billions of dollars with frightening realistic disaster movies. Once such images are in your brain, you begin to use them to make bad decisions. The subconscious mind cannot tell reality from perceived reality. Some people even use silly meaningless dreams (which contain images from Hollywood movie fiction), to guide their real-world decisions. These are NOT visions from God, but rather your own poor judgement in what you allow into your eyes, which drives vain imagination.

    The New Testament Bloody Violent Book of Revelation frightened early Christians into believing that Armageddon would happen in their lifetime. Today's survivalists are still selling fallout shelters and radiation suits to hundreds of thousand of frightened fools, who refuse to help the world avoid potential predictable disaster.

    Profiteering is most-certainly NOT our goal. We are very-aware of today's unsustainable negative trends, BUT our goal is to provide free details to you about what you can do to prepare. All you need to do is invest the time required to read, and then decide for yourself what you should do to prepare. This website sells nothing, but FREE HOPE for a better tomorrow.

     

    The following is a large collection of detailed documentation from many credible sources that all point in the same direction

    It is critical for you to understand the trends of man-made cause and effect, before you can develop your own personal plan for sustainable survival after the almost-unavoidable near-term economic cataclysm. No one can consistently predict the future with certainty. Exact timing is very difficult, BUT, many well-documented negative trends ARE quite clear.

    An increasing number of authors are predicting the U.S. bond market downgrade and dollar collapse (including Bill Gross - the world's largest bond trader). Simply increasing our debt limit does NOT solve our burdensome deficit spending problem.

    More debt is the opposite of the solution - DEBT IS THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM

    Raising the Debt Ceiling is NOT a political success - It is FAILURE to live a sustainable lifestyle

    No person or country can forever live above its means - The American debt experiment MUST FAIL (soon)

    Debt is the opposite of freedom and liberty - DEBT IS INDENTURED SERVITUDE

    If (WHEN) the dollar collapses (soon), there will be a global economic disaster

    We saw a $15 Trillion preview in September 2008, and a Trillion-dollar small snapshot stock market decline in July 2011

    The world has been warned many times about fiat currency debt, but continues its suicidal path at break-neck speed

     

    We know of no other source than Emerald Eco-City offering comprehensive, self-sufficient, sustainable,
    large-scale, shovel-ready solutions for AFTER the U.S. dollar predictably becomes useless (soon?)

    See our comprehensive Emerald Eco-City "Table of Contents" on the right above

     

    We cannot afford to sit back and wait for our self-serving gridlocked government, greedy bankers,
    and corrupt corporations that created today's problems to correct them - They cannot

    We must radically change our suicidal society from the ground up - one community cooperative at a time

    We must recognize great value in the life-critical things that are NOT measured in dollars or GDP

     

    The BAD NEWS is that we will have no money (which MAY help reduce the root of all evil).

    If book entries say that you own a billion dollars, when dollars become worthless,
    YOU ARE WORTHLESS:1,000,000,000 x 0 = 0

    The wealthy who spent a lifetime oppressing the "have nots" will have negative net worth (very soon).

    Trees will still grow apples, but a $100 bill may not buy one apple in 2012

    Wall Street Commodity Trader 2012 $100 Apples

     

    When dollars become worthless, The GOOD NEWS will be
    that the rest of us will still have each other, apple trees,

    and whatever humans have not destroyed of God's Great Green Garden of Eden

    The future SUSTAINABLE solution is not hard to understand -
    It is just VERY different from the suicidal way greedy people live today

    In a world where dollars become worthless, your net worth will be what you offer community survival

    Any friendships, relationships or contracts that are based only on dollars will be null and void

     

    Profound Questions That Must Be Answered Tomorrow

    What will you be able to trade for your local seasonal apples?

    Petroleum-powered vehicles will be worthless - Will you own a bicycle?

    Will someone nearby know how to build bicycles out of local resources?

    Will you live within bicycle distance of where food is grown year round?

    Will you have any near-by mutual-support friends at all?

    Where are you investing your life energy today?

     

    Since this material is voluminous and somewhat overwhelming, we have tried to make it more interesting and entertaining by adding many video clips, detailed charts, and some humor about how silly and stupid our suicidal business-as-usual is today. You can quickly find many more along similar lines from countless sources, with a simple Internet search. We hope that our effort in presenting this material to you will spark your own imagination, and inspire further immediate study for your self improvement, AND for the betterment and survival of all mankind.

     

    The aware will prepare - The unaware who do not care and prepare WILL Despair

    The dollar-collapse issues are non-trivial. So will be the solutions. When you complete this material you will be a better person - More valuable to your local community - Able to live a happier, abundant, more-prosperous life AFTER the U.S. Dollar collapses completely. Pay attention to the essentials.

    We don't agree with every detail of every video that we reference, but we do find them thought provoking at the very least. Be open minded and judge for yourself.

    If we can learn to laugh at our social stupidity, we can take long-overdue steps toward a superior sustainable set of comprehensive solutions.

    "Remember, the agencies that gave USA bonds AAA ratings also gave
    AAA ratings to the
    (bankrupt) Federal National Mortgage Association
    and Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation"
    Representative Ron Paul, M.D. - U.S. Presidential Candidate

    In a 2011 Rasmussen Reports Poll, Barack Obama received 41% and Ron Paul received 37%
    Ron Paul says that the U.S. should NOT raise our debt ceiling, and deal with our bankruptcy
    It will be very painful, but it will get even worse in the future

    When you compare American unpayable-debt fiscal irresponsibility to other large nations, and our dysfunctional
    divided ineffective government, U.S. bonds SHOULD have a lower credit rating than some better-managed nations
    - This will increase our interest rates, and we hope it force USA to borrow less - and live within our means

    In April 2011, Standards and Poors put the USA Credit Rating on their negative outlook watch list.
    Bowles / Simpson identified $9 Trillion in USA debt reduction opportunities.

    S&P warned that if USA did not have a realistic plan to reduce debt by $4 Trillion over ten years,
    they would downgrade America's AAA credit rating for the first time in history,

    which they did as they promised on August 5, 2011, when warring Congressional opponents only
    reduced deficit spending by $917 billion over ten years - Too Little, Too Late
    (70% of which would not take place until 2017 - long after the collapse of the U.S. dollar)

    Based on direct comparisons, USA is now formally a SECOND RATE DECLINING NATION -

    S&P has good reason to believe that Liechtenstein, Isle of Man, and Guernsey should have a better credit rating than declining dysfunctional USA

    U.S politicians and billionaires (like Warren Buffet) say that S&P is wrong - $14.5 Trillion in debt is no problem at all - Do you agree?

    American debt is still rapidly increasing, while our GDP is nearly flat or declining - USA debt to GDP ratio is getting worse every month.
    Raising the national debt ceiling is the OPPOSITE OF THE SOLUTION.

    Standard and Poors explained their downgrade of USA credit rating in detail on
    http://www.standardandpoors.com/servlet/BlobServer?blobheadername3=MDT-Type&blobcol=urldata&blobtable=MungoBlobs&blobheadervalue2=inline%3B+filename%3DUS_Downgraded_AA%2B.pdf&blobheadername2=Content-Disposition&blobheadervalue1=application%2Fpdf&blobkey=id&blobheadername1=content-type&blobwhere=1243942957443&blobheadervalue3=UTF-8

    "We lowered our long-term rating on the U.S. because we believe that the prolonged controversy over raising the statutory debt ceiling and the related fiscal policy debate indicate that further near-term progress containing the growth in public spending, especially on entitlements, or on reaching an agreement on raising revenues is less likely than we previously assumed and will remain a contentious and fitful process. We also believe that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the Administration agreed to this week falls short of the amount ($4 Trillion) that we believe is necessary to stabilize the general government debt burden by the middle of the decade. Our lowering of the rating was prompted by our view on the rising public debt burden and our perception of greater policy making uncertainty, consistent with our criteria."

    America's serious debt problem problem cannot be solved without reducing entitlement spending, and increasing revenue (by eliminated detrimental tax loopholes).

    Almost all intransigent extremely-corrupt Congressional Republicans have signed Grover Norquist's billionaire-subsidy pledge to never increase taxes for the top 1% of wage earners. This infantile stupidity weighed heavily on thew S&P downgrade decision. Ronald Regan promised to balance the budget, but he raised taxes 11 time and still increased the national debt three-fold - more than any previous president. George H. W. Bush proclaimed "Read my lips - NO NEW TAXES" but he was forced to eat his words, and lost his presidency. Today's Tea Party Terrorists are totally non-learning entities.

    We believe that S&P gave USA clear warning about their downgrade criteria, and that their downgrade was predictable and well deserved.
    BUT, will politicians merely point their finger at everyone but themselves? Will they do anything to correct their ongoing fiscal foolishness?

    Bill Clinton gave America a budget surplus. Bush / Cheney squandered the progress that Clinton made, and increased our national debt two-and-a-half times. Obama failed to keep his campaign promises, and allowed congressional corruption to continue Bush / Cheney fiscal insanity. America's debt crisis can be traced back to bad policies in response to 1973 - 1979 OPEC embargoes. The year since Clinton left office (in moral disgrace) have been particularly bad. The 2010 Tea Party election destroyed any hope for USA to reach a collaborative bipartisan solution to anything.

    In 2011, America became a badly-divided, finger-pointing, gridlocked, ungovernable, rapidly-declining nation - led by suicidal fools.

    Avoiding U.S. dollar economic collapse is highly unlikely. Credit rating agencies will probably further downgrade the U.S. credit rating, due to the congressional debt-reduction super committee of 6 Democrats and 6 intransigent Republicans from the House and Senate failing to reach a rational deficit reduction. S&P stated that their goal of a ten-year $1.2 trillion reduction was not nearly enough. At least least $4 Trillion was required. An $11 Trillion deficit reduction would be required to balance the budget, and even more to be able to pay down our burdensome $15 Trillion national debt crisis. There is NO HOPE OF A RATIONAL SOLUTION ON THE HORIZON.

     

     

    Every time Donald Trump digs himself into a fiscally-irresponsible hole of deep unpayable debt, he defaults on his loans, claims bankruptcy, does not pay his debts (steals from his creditors), starts all over again, and continues to deceive those non-learning fools who invest in his many fraudulent financial scams. Some insane idiots thought that this evil behavior would make Donald Trump a superior U.S. President.

    Donald Trump said that Congress should allow America to default and go bankrupt
    (The ethnocentric fool also claimed that Obama was a Muslim born in Kenya, along with other Tea Party birther bigots)

     

    Representative Mike Ross has been a conservative centrist member of Congress for 12 years.
    He is so fed up and frustrated with corrupt Congress that he will not run for another term.
    Ross is not collecting campaign bribes to run for office ever again. He said:

    "If America must decide who gets paid what we promised to pay them,
    the first people that should NOT get paid are Congress"

     

    America Is Already Bankrupt - We are way past the debt default tipping point
    We cannot afford the corrupt, bloated, ineffective government that we currently have -
    We cannot ever pay back the money we borrowed from China, Japan, and OPEC

    Our international statistics show that we are getting many anonymous hits on this webpage from CHINA
    Are the greedy American leaders who are destroying U.S.-Dollar-based economy paying any attention at all?

    We know for certain that China-sponsored hackers are successfully performing espionage on American
    corporation trade secrets, and obtaining information from Top Secret government agency files

    The detailed documentation about America's dysfunctional divided government, and extreme mismanagement
    of the U.S.-Dollar-based economy is readily available in the public domain to any interested viewer or country

    China is NOT stupid - The corrupt leaders of American politics, and our greedy corporations, ARE
    China is rapidly growing their economy, while America rushes headlong toward total collapse

     

    We can no longer keep the American promises to our senior citizens -
    We've squandered the money they paid into the Social Security Trust Fund


    Default and great financial trauma can no longer be avoided
    Raising our debt ceiling can NOT solve our deficit-spending crisis
    INCREASING our debt can only make our debt crisis WORSE
    If we do not increase our debt limit, and we default, interest rates will explode
    No matter what Congress does, millions of Americans will suffer great hardship

    There can be no soft landing - Do you care? Are you prepared?
    Will you get rich from bankruptcy, like Donald Trump, OR DIE?

     

    Since the Bush / Cheney economic collapse and great recession, taxpayers have bailed out
    parasitic big banks and badly-mismanaged mega-corporations with Trillions of dollars

    Many of the evil ones who received billions in big bailouts are now sitting on large
    cash reserves, instead of creating jobs for 15 million Americans who WANT to work

    Suppose America's credit rating predictably drops below AAA -
    Interest rates will rapidly rise for everyone - This will greatly damage all borrowers,
    BUT THOSE WITH LARGE CASH RESERVES WILL MAKE MORE INTEREST!

    Who do you think WANTS America's credit rating to be downgraded (despite what they say)?

    Man-made avoidable crises (like the USA debt crisis) are designed and motivated by
    the greedy rich, to make them richer at the expense of the debt-enslaved working class

     

    On July 15, 2011 U.S. President Barack Obama and the Democrat and Republican leaders of the U.S.
    Senate and House of Representatives said that
    America Is On The Edge Of Armageddon,
    because of self-serving partisan political posturing and manipulative brinksmanship

    When both dominant political parties firmly state that the other party is evil,
    greedy, and corrupt, then both of them are probably quite correct

    We have been documenting total collapse trends for years - Do you agree with me?

     

     

    Collapse Word Cloud

    USA may soon collapse from squanderlust deficit spending and fiat currency corruption

    IF (WHEN) it does, how will we survive? We won't have any money, but we will still have each other
    It is NOT all GLOOM and DOOM - There is good reason for HOPE, but the solution will be non-trivial

     

    In 2011, top economists say that: "The U.S. economy is no longer self sustaining"

    America does NOT have a clue how to live within our means on only our unsustainable natural resources

     

    Since 2008, USA has not been able to survive without irresponsible fiscal-and-monetary stimulus from huge taxpayer subsidies. A direct measure of this is our inability to provide jobs with a living wage for tens of millions or our citizens. Unsustainable outrageous deficit spending has badly burdened our grandchildren - in a way that they can never repay.

    Increasing America's national debt from $14 Trillion to $17 Trillion in only two years from 2011 through 2012, is the exact opposite of what we need to do.

    How long will YOUR family survive if you have to borrow over 40% of your monthly spending from your grandchildren (as insane unsustainable USA is doing today)? The long-overdue radical revolution is going to be traumatic for the multitudes

    2011 Unsustainable Borrowing - Deficit Spending Gone Wild!

     

    Any nation based on unpayable debt, inflation and devaluation is
    an abomination demonstration - with no imagination or illumination

    We must MANDATE a Balanced Budget, and eliminate immoral borrowing altogether !

    The real issue is how do we get there from where we are today without deep depression

     

    We must find a reasonable way to STOP raising the U.S. government maximum debt limit - $14+ Trillion of immoral generational debt is already unpayable - $16.7 Trillion has been approved for the next year and a half - The U.S. economy is likely to collapse before we get to $16.7 Trillion in unpayable burdensome debt.

    When we get to the point where no one will loan USA money, we will have to immediately and traumatically reduce spending by more than 40%. which will destroy many businesses and jobs, drastically reduce tax revenues, and cascade off the cliff into total deadly economic collapse

     

    Professor Peter Bernholz (author of "Monetary Regimes and Inflation") explained the historical progress of hyperinflation that results from irresponsible money creation:

    "Hyperinflations are always caused by public budget deficits, which are largely financed by money creation. The figures demonstrate clearly that deficits amounting to 40% or more of expenditures cannot be maintained. They lead to high inflation and hyperinflations."

    "Hyperinflations are not caused by aggressive central banks. They are caused by irresponsible and profligate legislatures that spend far beyond their means and by accommodative central banks that lend a helping hand to governments."

    Will Rogers - popular Great Depression country-boy wit and wisdom: "I was raised on a Cattle Ranch and I never saw or heard of a Ranchman going broke (except) the ones who had borrowed money. You can't break a man that don't borrow; he may not have anything, but Boy! he can look the World in the face and say, 'I don't owe you Birds a nickel.' You will say, 'What will all the Bankers do?' I don't care what they do. Let 'em go to work, if there is any job any of them could earn a living at. Banking and After-Dinner Speaking are two of the most non-essential industries we have in this country. I am ready to reform if they are."

     

    Stop Spending Our Future! - Irresponsible Current Collapse Crisis

     

    January 27, 2011: The head of the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) testified before the Senate Budget Committee that our current U.S. $1.6 Trillion per year budget deficit is about to send us into a "fiscal crisis."

    It could double our national debt in only 10 more years. Reducing our enormous budget deficit by ONLY $3 Trillion barely begins to help.

    If (WHEN) USA defaults on our unpayable debt obligations, our credit rating will plummet further, investors will not want to loan America any money, and interest rates for EVERYTHING will rapidly rise. Our government will NOT be able to respond to natural or man-made emergencies; interest payments on old debt will consume much more of taxpayer funds, ALL government benefits and services will have to be slashed by over 40%, and taxes will have to rise significantly - To Prevent Total Bankruptcy. Millions will die a painful death.

    The recent riots that we've seen in Europe and the Middle East are coming soon to America

    "Gang Of Six" member, and Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad said:

    "Spending as a share of our national income is at the highest level in 60 years (since WW II)

    "Revenue as a share of our national income is at its lowest level in 60 years

    "No wonder that we are headed for the largest deficit ever" . . .

    "CBO's report should be a red light flashing to the nation

    "Our fiscal situation is serious and becoming more so

    "We are at a Critical Juncture –
    "We are borrowing 40 cents of every dollar we spend

    "This is UTTERLY UNSUSTAINABLE and the sooner we address it,
    the sooner we come to grips with it, the better"

     

    Stop Spending My Future

    The sins of the parents will be visited on their children down to the third and fourth generation - Exodus 20:5

    If one generation is 15 years, do you think that our offspring 60 years from now will still be paying off the unsustainable debt created by the extremely-sinister selfish, non-caring baby boom generation? Will the American economy collapse in less than 60 years, when our U.S. dollars are worthless and no one in the world will be dumb enough to loan USA money for endless immoral deficit spending that our grandchildren cannot possibly ever pay back? How will this impact their future standard of living? Is a major reduction in lifespan the only answer to today's suicidal unsustainable spend-thrift obese gluttony?

    Evil parents borrow, spend, waste and destroy, so their children's children will suffer

    Index of U.S. Dollar exchange rate against other major currencies
    Bush / Cheney Republican Documented Destruction of the Dollar

    United Nations Report Index of Effective Exchange Rate Against Other Major Currencies,

    The June 2011 United Nations "World Economic Situation and Prospects 2011" report says:

    "The (U.S.) dollar has continued its downward trend against other major currencies. Despite lingering risks associated with sovereign debt levels in some European economies, the euro appreciated against the dollar . . . buttressed by the expectation of faster monetary tightening in the euro area. This trend is expected to continue until late 2011, when the United States Federal Reserve (Fed) may raise interest rates. . . . .

    "The downward trend over the longer term is associated with the dollar's role as the world's major reserve currency and the uneven global growth exacerbating the global imbalances. The imbalances have led to cumulative increases in external liabilities of the United States as its growth pattern induces large trade deficits, which, have a counterpart in large trade surpluses, elsewhere, such as Germany, Japan, China and other major Asian exporters and oil-exporting countries. The large external debt position of the United States is keeping downward pressure on the dollar.

    "The global imbalances narrowed as a result of the collapse in world trade and the aggregate demand compression. With the recovery they have started to widen again, albeit moderately. The deficit of the United States declined from its peak of 6% of GDP before the recession to a trough of 2.7% in 2009 and widened again to 3.2% of GDP in 2010, and is expected to stay at about 3.5% of GDP in 2011-2012.

    "China's surplus declined from the peak of 10.6% of GDP in 2007 to about 5% in 2010, and is expected to narrow further to below 4% in 2012, as a result of the accumulated appreciation of the renminbi (yuan) in recent years and policies to support domestic consumption. Germany's surplus has also narrowed slightly, but has remained at about 6% of GDP in 2010, and is expected to stay above 5% in the near outlook. However, the current account for the euro area as a whole is approximately in balance. Japan's surplus stood at about 3% of GDP in 2010, and is expected to decline notably in 2011-2012. The surplus of oil-exporting countries in West Asia and North Africa decreased from more than 15% of GDP in the years before 2008 to about 2% in 2009. Th e surpluses have since recovered slightly but are expected to stay below 5% in 2011-2012.

    "The most recent wave of dollar devaluation has also been driven by other factors, including interest rate differentials between the United States and other economies, and growing concern about the sustainability of the public debt of the United States, half of which is held by foreigners. Measured by the exchange rate index of the dollar vis-à-vis the basket of other major currencies, the dollar has reached the lowest level since the 1970s. The depreciation of the dollar against the currencies of many emerging economies has also been significant. As a result, further (expected) losses of the book value of the vast foreign reserve holdings could trigger a crisis of confidence in the reserve currency, which would put the entire global financial system at risk."

     

    U.N. says that the demise of the dollar puts the entire world at risk

    The faith-based worthless fiat dollar is not just suicidal for the USA

     

    Think for a minute . . . Why is this not the #1 headline on every news channel?

    If the U.N. report is correct, we may soon see the largest
    global economic disaster in the entire history of all humanity
    WE CANNOT KICK THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD ANY FARTHER

    If the average American really understood the coming near-term collapse,
    then every town hall should be filled trying to reverse the current trend

    Media Moguls (like Rupert Murdoch, Michael Bloomberg, Sumner Redstone, and Steve Forbes)
    do NOT want their reporters to broadcast the TRUTH,
    since it would
    accelerate the total collapse of the faith-based worthless fiat dollar, which
    is the source of their huge net worth, and their power over the people

    "You will learn the Truth and the Truth will set you free" - John 8:32

    Occasionally, there are times when it seems there may be a little bit of justice
    in the world. Hitler, Mussolini, Hussein, and bin Laden are a few examples.

    Rupert Murdoch is the world's largest and most-influential Media Mogul.
    He has more high-profile radical right-wing Republicans on his payroll
    than the Republican National Committee.

    When Rupert applied for U.S. citizenship, it was granted overnight, while
    11 million who legally applied for citizenship have been denied for years.

    Rupert IS a King Maker - Conservatives must pay homage and tribute to him.
    The radical Tea Party revolution owes Murdoch's Fox News their very existence.

    After over a decade of corrupt criminal influence peddling and international
    crimes in the highest of places, Murdoch turned the Republican Party
    into a Supercilious Circus of wing-nut ridiculous clowns of the gullible.

    I was ever so delighted that the Murdoch family and his lieutenants
    are finally under international criminal investigation.

    Rupert Murdoch committed perjury to British Parliament:
    "It's not my responsibility - Other people lied to me."
    If you delegate responsibility to criminals YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE.

    The value of Rupert's News Corp. stock plunged $6 BILLION in only 5 days

    NewsCorp.com prophetically said: "Creating ... news ... around the world."
    It was filled with press releases that continued to deny the obvious documented Truth.

    3-Minute Video - Fiat Currency Humor Time:

    For half a century, Ray Stevens entertained millions of people with his quirky

    Ray won 11 Grammy Awards.

    We don't agree with all of Ray's politics, but we strongly believe that

    Of course we now know that fiscal irresponsibility and
    deficit spending are BIPARTISAN universal unethical immorality,
    but
    "once you reject any sense of decency it just gets easier and easier"

    Laugh out loud with us, at us! (and then do something serious about it)

    Ray Stevens' Budget Plan

     

     

    Squanderlust Debt Ceiling Pig The "Debt Ceiling" is America's faux maximum national credit card limit

    It is a nonexistent "faux" limit because every time we reach it, we raise it

    If you keep raising your own personal debt limit every year, you have no spending restraint at all. Debt payments MUST forever increase to pay for principle and interest. Being in debt is a growing snowball that ends in bankruptcy.

    For our government, taxes must increase, and less money is available for doing what needs to be done. This behavior has always triggered the collapse of every great nation throughout history. Have we learned nothing from history?

    Rampant deficit spending is absolutely insane and unsustainable

    Families know they cannot keep increasing their credit card limit forever - Eventually they will go hopelessly bankrupt.

     

    Everything costs more when you borrow money for it

    It is very depressing to have to make endless payments on things that you bought on credit and used up long ago. If you buy a hamburger on your credit card, and you do not pay off your credit card in full every month, then you may be paying expensive interest on that hamburger for months into the future. Few things are more stupid than that.

    "Better to go to bed hungry than to wake up in debt" - Ben Franklin

     

    Greedy Wall Street bankers used insane sub-prime lending practices and risk-transfer derivatives to badly damage America under Bush / Cheney unregulated deficit-spending policies. U.S. taxpayers will be paying for the 2008 Wall Street bailouts for decades - stealing the future from our grandchildren. The ungodly wicked vulture capitalist bankers were allowed to pay themselves huge bonuses with taxpayer bailout funds. This provoked great anger among damaged middle class voters, who created the Tea Party terrorists as a knee-jerk reaction in 2009.

     

    Half a century ago, many middle-income Americans did NOT have a mortgage, car loan, or credit card debt. Only one person out of a family of five needed to work outside the home to earn enough for a comfortable middle-class lifestyle.

    Borrowing money for anything (especially depreciating items) was thought to be immature and irresponsible in the 1950's. Many people only owned things that they could pay cash for. USA cared about our WW II veterans, educated them well, and there were plenty of growth-oriented jobs available. A nice new three-bedroom home in middle America might only cost $10,000. No banker can foreclose on your home or farm if there is no mortgage on it. Rural communities helped each other with volunteer barn raising, and other generous acts of brotherly love and kindness. Immediate gratification, conspicuous consumption, and flashy possessions were frowned upon.

    When shortsighted, immature, "I Want It All NOW", baby boomers took out many more mortgages in the 1970's, demand for new houses went way up, and house prices unsustainably increased significantly - often more-than-10% per year. The $10,000 house eventually cost over $150,000 - because of indiscriminate unwise borrowing.

    Fools thought that houses were a great investment that only went up in value, UNTIL THE UNSUSTAIABLE HOUSING BUBBLE BURST BADLY IN 2007, creating The Great Bush / Cheney Catastrophic Recession, which blew a $15 Trillion hole in the U.S economy.

    Ungodly greedy Dick Cheney emphatically stated that "Deficit spending does not matter" - HE WAS PROVED TOTALLY WRONG !

    Thousands of companies went bankrupt. Cheney got rich on his Halliburton stock options, but millions of Americans lost their jobs, pensions and health care. Millions of homes were foreclosed, and house prices plummeted - because of nationwide indiscriminate unwise borrowing by government and inDUHviduals.

    Non-learning Dick Cheney often stated that he had no regrets for anything he did while in office - including shooting his hunting partner in the face, and starting an unjustified war in Iraq, based on Cheney's lies about nonexistent weapons of mass destruction. There were 30,000 American Causalities in Iraq, plus a million innocent women and children killed or seriously injured.

    Cheney should be held accountable for all casualties in the Iraq war,
    AND for the $15 Trillion hole blown in the American economy in 2008 !

    Our grandchildren will pay the heavy price for many decades

     

    Is out-of-control, widespread, unaffordable borrowing a good thing? Hell NO!

    Many Americans claim that we are a nation founded on Christian principles,
    BUT, true Christians are FORBIDDEN from ever borrowing money for anything:
    "Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another;
    for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law."

    - Romans 13:8 - Borrowing money is UNGODLY and ANTI-CHRISTIAN

    Hebrew tradition: "You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none"
    - Deuteronomy 28:12

    "The wicked borrow and do not repay, but the righteous give generously"
    - Psalm 37:21 - Wicked presidential candidate Donald Trump claimed bankruptcy multiple times,
    but he did NOT repay his debts when he recovered. Wicked, selfish, ungodly, ungenerous
    Tea Party terrorists do NOT want America to repay its contractual debts or social obligations
    They want USA to default and fail - Their wickedness drove down America's AAA credit rating


    When an individual or country goes bankrupt, no one should loan them money
    This is a GOOD and GODLY THING - We must learn to live within our means

    This is not only possible, it is COMMANDED by multiple religions (which are often ignored)

     

    Early American founding fathers cultivated character based on frugality and humility:
    "Neither a borrower nor a lender be"
    "He that goes a borrowing goes a sorrowing"

    - Ben Franklin - The founding father face on our $100 bill

     

    "I never saw or heard of a Ranchman going broke (except) the ones who had borrowed money
    You can't break a man that don't borrow" - Will Rogers - Hollywood's 1930's top movie star

     

    Today's gullible borrowing-crazy ungodly consumers cannot understand those of us who chose to live debt free
    "The rich rule over the poor, And the borrower becomes the lender's slave" - Proverbs 22:7
    The foundation of America is FREEDOM, and financial freedom clearly means DEBT FREE !
    If you cannot even imagine living debt free, then you have ignored history AND religion


    In Ben Franklin's American freedom, an ungodly "consumer" was considered a wasteful foolish person
    In contrast, profit-motivated advertisers encourage deficit-spending consumption, slavery, and bankruptcy

    Non-learning Americans now seem to ignore history and forever repeat the worst errors of the past
    We do stupid things again and again. We teach them to our children, until insanity seems normal

     

    Wealthy ungodly people and vulture capitalists profit greatly when
    less-fortunate, financially-inept, ignorant people borrow mon
    ey

    DO NOT FALL INTO ADVERTISERS' NEVER-ENDING, PROFITEERING, DEBT TRAP !

    If you can't afford to pay cash for it right now, then you probably can't afford it - Don't buy it
    MAKE BETTER BUYING DECISIONS - ALWAYS, ALWAYS LIVE WITHIN YOUR MEANS

    Federal Reserve artificially-low interest rates have stolen the incentive to save money for a worthwhile goal
    Instead of investing in the future, greedy baby boomers steal from their grandchildren, leaving a legacy of deep debt

    If you are struggling to make ends meet, then DO NOT PAY INTEREST TO WEALTHY ANTI-GOD VULTURE CAPITALISTS
    (or to foreign countries like China, Japan, and Saudi Arabia, as our squanderlust self-serving legislators do today)

    Wealthy money lenders now control our corrupt legislature, which encourages deficit spending for high profits
    When banks went crazy making bad sub-prime mortgages, struggling taxpayers had to bail them out !

     

    Corrupt American legislators ignore the plain fact that borrowing makes everything cost more. They blindly borrow Trillions of dollars, hoping to get reelected before their deep debt must be repaid. They foolishly hope that "borrowing money makes things cost more", does not apply to OUR government. Surprise, Surprise, IT DOES!

    Uncontrolled government borrowing raises the price of almost everything for almost everyone!

    Suppose a family sits down to try to balance their budget. Their annual family income is $50,000 per year. They add up what they spent over the last 12 months, and find that it was $80,000. They add up their credit card debts, and discover that they owe a total of a whopping $350,000. These are the irresponsible ratios of the insane, unsustainable, U.S. government deficit-spending budget today.

    You can argue if we should cut spending OR find legal ways to increase our income, BUT NEITHER ONE ALONE WILL PREVENT NEAR-TERM BANKRUPTCY.

    America is way past the catastrophic deep-debt tipping point

    A non-traumatic soft landing is no longer possible, regardless of trillion-dollar:
    debt ceiling increases, huge tax increases and draconian spending cuts

     

    Tea Party Activists Hijacked American Politics in 2011
    And Held Our Failing Economy Hostage

    They ALL voted against the majority U.S. opinion in favor
    of the big money bribes that obviously corrupt them

    63% of Americans supported Obama's Jobs Creation Act
    http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/jobs_act.pdf
    100% of Republican Senators voted against all aspects of it

    Republican Senators violently oppose majority-rule democracy !
    Since Obama became President, they have used the minority filibuster
    to block the will of the American majority hundreds of times
    - many times more than ever before in American history

    Speaker of the House John Boehner would not even allow
    any elements of Obama's popular Jobs act to be debated

    Speaker Boehner BOLDLY LIED when he said:
    "My job is to listen to the American people and do their will" . . .
    "95% of my (Republican) colleges are doing the will of their constituents"

    Boehner is a popular low-I.Q. non-learning propaganda peddler. He's a well-documented
    chain smoker, heavy drinker, and habitual liar. The above quote has one critical omission:
    Republicans do the will of their WEALTHIEST 1% of constituents,
    while voting against the will of the vast majority

     

    69% of Americans polled believe that Republican
    Tea Party terrorism supports the Top 1% wealthy,
    to the sad detriment of the other 99%

    76% of Americans think our nation is on the wrong track
    Are Republicans really listening to the will of most constituents?
    ABSOLUTELY NOT !

     

    There Are Over Three Million Americans In The Top 1%
    They Have Net Worth Over $9 Million For Each Family Household,
    and, The Top 1% "Own" The Extremely-Corrupt Republican Party

    Weak-Minded Republican Voters Are Easily-Manipulated By Big Money
    94%of the time, voters elect the president that spends the most on campaign ads

     

    John Boehner says that the Top 1% already pay over one third of
    U.S. taxes - He feels that they should pay less, not more - BUT,
    the Top 1% of Americans own HALF of all wealth in the USA -
    THEY SHOULD PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE OF TAXES


    Why should Mitt Romney pay only 13.9% income tax on $21 million per year,
    when most middle-income Americans pay a much-higher tax rate ? ! ? ! ?
    The obvious answer is that the evil, greedy rich corrupt self-serving USA legislators !

     

    Before the money corruption of Ronald Reagan, the top progressive
    income tax was 50%, and the wealthy Top 1% prospered very nicely

    Under Bill Clinton, the top income tax bracket was only 39.6%
    We had a budget surplus and USA was paying off our national debt

    John Boehner wants to lower the top tax bracket to only 25%, or less,
    which (like Bush / Cheney) will greatly increase America's national debt

    Koch-brothers' paid puppet, immoral Herman Cain wanted max tax to be only 9%

    Ohio Representative / Speaker Boehner is a strong supporter of wicked John Kasich

    Ohio Representative Speaker John Boehner Strong Supporter of Ohio Governor John Kasich

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uR3Z556dBSk

    In October 2010, Speaker Boehner said that then-Ohio-governor Ted Strickland, Barak Obama, and
    Democrats in Congress did not listen to the will of the people, and Ohio needed (R) John Kasich (as if)

    After John Kasich was elected and signed his attack on middle-class Ohio workers into law
    (in March 2011), Speaker Boehner featured Kasich on his website, as an example of
    "success" that Washington D.C. should follow (August 20, 2011):

     

    John Kasich took a $10,000 salary increase - He gave members of his
    administrative staff up to 40% salary increases, plus pensions,
    and a guaranteed annual salary increase of at least 3%

    Kasich's SB5 took away automatic salary increases for public sector unions,
    made it illegal to strike or collectively bargain, violated pension contracts,
    and demanded that state employees pay more for lower benefits

    John Kasich quickly became the most-unpopular governor in America

    His 1% versus 99% class warfare was similar to other Republicans in 2011

    On November 8, 2011, a 61% super majority of Ohio voters resoundingly defeated
    John Kasich's union-busting SB5 bill, despite strong support from many corrupt
    Republicans and out-of-state donations to dishonest fraudulent campaign tactics
    (Powerful message from the 99% to the two Johns: "NO Number 2")

    Ohio had a strong movement to boycott all large-and-small businesses
    that provided funding to support the SB5 attack on the working class
    Business names were published online, and THEY LOST REVENUE

    Speaker John Boehner, many other Republican politicians, and
    presidential candidates attached their political future to Kasich's SB5

    Should Republicans begin to listen to the clearly-stated will of the people,
    STOP subsidizing the Top 1%, and encourage 20 million new living-wage jobs?
    There is almost NO POLITICAL CHANCE that will happen any time soon

    In his 11/8/11 concession speech, Kasich said he would have to rethink his politics
    John Boehner on the other hand did NOT repent or hear his home-state constituents

    Will corrupt deaf Republicans be defeated by a super majority in November 2012?

    Will angry Ohio voters send Speaker Boehner home after he supported Kasich's SB5?

    We certainly hope so, but non-learning American voters have a very-short attention span
    We hope that the "NO Number 2" and "Occupy" protesters will unite in solidarity

     

    "The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
    but because of those who look on and do nothing"
    - Albert Einstein

    "NO Number 2" won a super majority, because of extreme Ohio activism,
    in the face of the worst American class warfare since The Great Depression

    Will the 99% freedom fire continue to grow, or die out before November 2012?

    If dysfunctional government continues to do nothing, unrest will surely spread

     

    Will Rogers: "I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Democrat. . . .
    Democrats never agree on anything, that's why they're Democrats.
    If they agreed with each other, they would be Republicans." (Chuckle)

     

    The 2011 congressional Tea Party Republicans reversed that classical political party pattern
    Inept, uncooperative, Tea Party House of Representatives freshmen were like herding rabid cats
    Republicans strategists like Karl Rove are hoping a rational candidate will run for president

    Speaker of the House John Boehner commanded his caucus to "Get your ass in line!"
    But, his desperation destructive arm-twisting coercive battle cry famously failed in flames

    On Monday July 25, 2011 the inept Boehner promised that the House would pass his outrageous budget bill by Wednesday,
    with bipartisan support, BUT, he could NOT deliver even enough Republican votes to his last-minute 7/28/2011 insane budget bill
    Boehner had to amend his America-killing bill even farther to the right to get only 218 Republican House votes for it on 7/29/2011
    Within only a couple of hours, 51 Democrat, 2 Independent, and 6 Republican Senators voted down Boehner's bill in the Senate
    BUT, stubborn Republican Senator Mitch McConnell demanded a minority filibuster against the bipartisan Reid debt crisis solution

    Childish congressional disregard for the consequences of their incompetence is the worst political event in MY lifetime

    We can only hope that the new form of government (after the USA collapse) makes such stupidity impossible

     

    Our founding fathers went out of their way to intentionally create divided government checks and balances
    Divided democratic government mandates bipartisan cooperation on what is good for the majority of USA

    "Logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few" - Spock
    Defending and subsidizing only the top 1% of multi-millionaires is clearly corrupt, and beyond illogical insanity

    Infantile intransigent Tea Partiers haven't a clue how to play together to get what they covet the most
    The 2010 election Tea Party morons turned America into a hypocrisy mockery of democracy

    Robert Greenstein of The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities stated that the Boehner budget plan was "class warfare . . . if enacted,
    it would produce the greatest increase in poverty and hardship produced by any law in modern U.S. history."

    53 Senators wrote Speaker Boehner that they would reject his budget bill, which they did in a couple of hours
    The Tea Party uncompromising virulent ignorance was a bad career-ending attempt to win political points for 2012

    The House Tea Party representatives who voted against the Boehner budget thought it did not advance their class warfare enough
    The Democrats who voted against it thought it went way too far to destroy health care, social security, education, and food for the needy

    The cascading predictable damage to the worldwide economy may be huge

     

    Benjamin Franklin: "Tricks and treachery are the practice of FOOLS, that don't have brains enough to be honest"
    When elected representatives consistently vote AGAINST majority opinion, it is PURE ARROGANT OPEN TREACHERY

     

    Marcus Tullius Cicero: "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague. . . . No wise man ever thought that a traitor should be trusted."

     

    Republican Senator John McCain said on the Senate floor that the intransigent insistence of Tea Party caucus members of the House of Representative, (like Michele Bachmann), for their political agenda was "worse than foolish." McCain quoted from Rupert Murdock's Wall Street Journal: "The idea seems to be that if the House GOP refuses to raise the debt ceiling, a default crisis or gradual government shutdown will ensue, and the public will turn en masse against Barack Obama. . . . Then Democrats would have no choice but to pass a balanced-budget amendment and reform entitlements, and the Tea Party Hobbits could return to Middle-Earth, having defeated Mordor." (Chuckle - Rabid-Cat Republicans are badly divided by Treacherous Traitor Teavangelists)

    Senator McCain then said: "This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell into GOP Senate nominees."

    Dear Senator McCain, please remember that YOU raised crackpot, room-temperature-I. Q., Tea Party Queen Sara Plain to national fame without vetting her.
    Your extremely-bad Sarah Palin running-mate choice contributed significantly to your 2008 presidential campaign defeat.
    Sarah Palin now stands in strong opposition to much of what more-reasonable Senator John McCain is trying to do to save America from Tea Party Hobbits.

    Mark Meckler of the Tea Party Patriots responded to John McCain on CNN. "Clearly he's been corrupted by the ring of power." (snicker)

    I feel that the worst corruption of political power in my lifetime has been the rapid un-vetted rise of uncompromising destructive Teavangelists

     

    USA 2011 Treason

    "Treason" is the criminal offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one's own country from within.
    Treason is the ONLY federal crime defined in the U.S. Constitution.

    When Rick Perry foolishly applied the word "Treason" to Ben Bernanke, the Texas cowboy politician clearly demonstrated his illiteracy
    - Bernanke has tried to SUPPORT the Bush and Obama Administrations (even though Ben's Q.E. methods are very counterproductive).

    In the extreme case where lives are lost, the traditional punishment for Treason was death. We do NOT advocate capital punishment for non-violent Tea Party acts of Treason, BUT, we do feel that elected officials who openly and repeatedly violate their Oath Of Office HAVE NO RIGHT TO CONTINUE HOLDING OFFICE.

    The Oath Of Office required by the 1884 Sixth Article of the U.S. Constitution of the United States requires elected members and delegates of Congress to swear:

    "I, ___, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

    When true patriots take this Oath Of Office, they SHOULD put aside their partisan campaign mode, and become a member of the cooperative national solution team. Their top priority should become issues, NOT competitive partisan political positioning. Self-serving members of congress and Tea Party Terrorists have clearly reversed these critical priorities.

     

    The 1868 Amendment 14 to the U.S. Constitution clearly states that: "The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, . . . shall not be questioned." There should NEVER be an opportunity for Congress to vote to NOT pay our legal debts and obligations that Congress committed us to.

    ANYONE who has sworn a solemn oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States" who then advocates the U.S. government NOT paying its legal debts, contracts or financial obligations has (1) Violated their Oath Of Office, and (2) committed a treacherous act of TREASON. This statement is irrefutably self evident. The U.S. Constitution says that they should be impeached and removed from office.

    Anyone who voted NO on The Budget Control Act of 2011 (Senate 365) (aka the debit ceiling bill): Violated their Oath Of Office, committed an act of Treason, should have articles of Impeachment filed against them, be immediately removed from office, and banned from ever holding any public office ever again, prosecuted for the crime of Treason, and perhaps placed in federal prison for many years. This applies to 161 members of the House of Representatives, and 26 Senators.

     

    Of course, we know that justice is absolutely NOT going to happen in plutocratic America

    Congress has clearly made themselves above the constitution that they have falsely sworn to uphold. Laws only apply to the poor and the mediocre who lack the legal representation that is reserved for the elite, connected, and powerful, who want to tax the poor, and subsidize the top 1% wealthiest of all.

    IF those who voted against the 2011 The Budget Control Act had prevailed: (1) USA would have been forced to suddenly stop borrowing 40% of every dollar that we spend, (2) we would have to slash our budget by 40% - immediately terminating millions of jobs, (3) this would have reduced tax revenues, resulting a cascading loss of millions of more jobs, (4) America could not possibly honor Amendment 14 - we could not pay at least some of our debts and obligations - we would default, (5) interest rates would jump up for every American, (6) our bond market and U.S. dollar would collapse in a matter of hours, (7) we could not afford to pay for imports (with our worth less dollars).

    This would be the worst kind of internal Terrorist Treason, with suicidal international consequences

     

    Who Is Responsible For This 2011 Suicidal Economy-Damaging Treason?
    The arrogant criminals that should be immediately removed from office have names

    161 U.S. Representatives who voted against Senate 365 to pay our legal debts and obligations:
    Ackerman, Akin, Amash, Bachmann, Baldwin, Bishop (UT), Blumenauer, Boswell, Braley (IA), Brooks, Broun (GA), Brown (FL), Buerkle, Burton (IN), Butterfield, Capuano, Cardoza, Carson (IN), Chaffetz, Chu, Clarke (MI), Clarke (NY), Cleaver, Cohen, Conyers, Cravaack, Crowley, Cummings, Davis (KY), DeFazio, DeGette, DeLauro, DesJarlais, Doyle, Duncan (SC), Edwards, Ellison, Engel, Farr, Filner, Flake, Fleischmann, Fleming, Forbes, Frank (MA), Franks (AZ), Fudge, Garrett, Gingrey (GA), Gohmert, Gonzalez, Gowdy, Graves (GA), Green, Al Griffith (VA), Grijalva, Hahn, Hall, Harris, Hartzler, Hastings (FL), Holt, Honda, Huelskamp, Hultgren, Hunter, Jackson (IL), Johnson (IL), Jones, Jordan, Kaptur, King (IA), Kingston, Kissell, Kucinich, Labrador, Lamborn, Landry, Larson (CT), Latham, Lee (CA), Lewis (GA), Loebsack, Lofgren, Zoe Luján, Mack, Maloney, Markey, Matsui, McClintock, McCollum, McDermott, McGovern, McIntyre, McNerney, Miller (NC), Miller, George Moran, Mulvaney, Murphy (CT), Nadler, Napolitano, Neal, Neugebauer, Nunes, Olver, Pallone, Pastor (AZ), Paul, Payne, Pearce, Peters, Pingree (ME), Poe (TX), Posey, Price (NC), Quayle, Rangel, Rehberg, Reyes, Richardson, Roby, Rokita, Ross (FL), Roybal-Allard, Ryan (OH), Sánchez, Linda T. Sarbanes, Scalise, Schakowsky, Schweikert, Scott (SC), Scott (VA), Scott, Austin Serrano, Slaughter, Smith (WA), Southerland, Stark, Stearns, Stutzman, Sutton, Thompson (MS), Tierney, Tipton, Tonko, Towns, Turner, Velázquez, Visclosky, Walsh (IL), Waters, Watt, Waxman, Welch, Westmoreland, Wilson (SC), Woolsey, Yarmuth and Yoder

    26 U.S. Senators who voted against Senate Bill 365 to pay our legal debts and obligations:
    Ayotte, Chambliss, Coats, Coburn, DeMint, Gillibrand, Graham,Grassley, Harkin, Hatch, Heller, Inhofe, Johnson (WI), Lautenberg, Lee, Menendez, Merkley, Moran, Nelson (NE), Paul, Rubio, Sanders, Sessions, Shelby, Toomey, and Vitter

    Some of the above Democrats voted against Senate Bill 365 because it went too far. Some Republicans and Tea Party Treacherous Terrorists voted against S. 365 because it did not go far enough, BUT, all of the above elected members of Congress violated their Oath of Office to uphold the U.S. Constitution and pay all of our debts.

    If YOU vote to re-elected any of the above - You are enabling ongoing Treason to destroy America from within.

     

    Tea Party Mad Hatter Eric Cantor and
    Big Headed, Pig Headed, Evil Red Queen Bachmann

    Mad Hatters Tea Party Cantor Bachmann Don't Touch My Pork

    Don't Touch MY Pork - It keeps my feet Warm

    Michel Bachmann was asked if higher unemployment would be GOOD for her 2012 hopes,
    she candidly replied:
    "I hope so." What is wrong with this evil self-serving picture ? !

    Eric Cantor said plainly: "America has made promises that we cannot keep"
    In direct violation of his Oath Of Office, and Amendment 14 of the U.S. Constitution
    Not paying our legal obligations will have unthinkable catastrophic consequences

    Senate Leader Harry Reid: "House majority leader Eric Cantor has shown he shouldn't be at the table,
    and Republicans agree he shouldn't be at the table - Even Speaker Boehner and
    Minority Leader McConnell seem to understand the seriousness of this situation."

    "The wise man doubteth often, and changeth his mind; the fool is obstinate,
    and doubteth not; he knoweth all things but his own ignorance."
    - Akhenaton

    Senator Chuck Schumer: "It can't just be Eric Cantor deciding everything"‎

    Cantor refused to provide FEMA disaster funds for hurricane victims, unless he got his way.
    This brought the wrath of hard-hit Republican Governor Chris Christie down on Eric Cantor.

    Senator John Kerry said Tea Party Republicans engaged in legislative extortion
    and held the nation hostage to get their way on the debt ceiling crisis

    V.P. Joe Biden said the Tea Party acted like "terrorists" - 76% of Americans agree

    President Barack Obama said Republicans "manufactured a crisis" over the debt ceiling

    After the brutal Debt Ceiling fiasco badly damaged our fragile economy, and made the USA an international laughingstock,
    Mitch McConnell (the leading Senate Republican) fully expects to do this again. McConnell believes his party
    has "learned" the value in pursuing this, regardless of the catastrophic consequences.
    Senator McConnell clearly stated on the record that the Debt Ceiling is "a hostage that's worth ransoming."
    (If you don't like being called a hostage-taking extortionist terrorist, THEN DON'T CALL YOURSELF ONE!)

    Eric Cantor sent an email to Congressional Republicans. He wrote that the consequences of the S&P downgrade and stock market collapse
    would renew pressure to close tax loopholes for the wealthy, but Mad Hatter Cantor urged big-money-corrupted Republicans to resist

    Speaker John Boehner said: "I got 98% of what I wanted - I'm a happy guy" - just before the global Stock Market crashed
    Does the buffoon Boehner still claim 98% of the responsibility for the $4 Trillion of USA net worth loss in only 11 days?

    Do you agree with S&P that the gridlocked U.S. government is dysfunctional,
    and unable to solve the many problems that they have created?

    The 11/2011 Supper Collapse Of The Super Committee Proved That It Is

    Are Tea Party Extortion Terrorists the solution or the source of gridlock?

     

    Eric Cantor insists on cutting federal spending, no matter how many millions of jobs it destroys

    Eric insisted that any FEMA disaster relief spending must come from cutting other federal spending he does not like.
    Fossil-fuel-corrupted Tea Party Terrorist Republicans want to eliminate the U.S. Department Of Energy (DOE).
    They will do anything they can to end DOE energy-efficiency and sustainable-energy development,
    which threaten to reduce the immoral profits of the dirty unsustainable oil-and-coal industries.

    When the man-made global warming Joplin tornado killed 153 Americans, Eric Cantor
    insisted that the FEMA funds be stolen from the Department Of Energy federal budget.

    When hurricane Irene struck 14 states, Cantor insisted that FEMA funds for it be diverted from Joplin
    - Sorry Joplin, you are yesterday's disaster - You are now on your own to rebuild at your own expense.
    Republicans must cut spending so they can subsidize big oil companies, and give tax cuts to billionaires.

    Texas Republican extremist Ron Paul has his own suggestion. Ron says USA should eliminate FEMA altogether.
    It is curious that FEMA denied Rick Perry's request for funds for Texas' climate change drought and 9,000 forest fires.

    Our President criticized Rick Perry for his rejection of scientific data when Obama referred to
    "a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change"

    Should we dissolve USA, close Interstate Highways, and build
    a 50-foot-high double fence with alligators around every state?

     

    A Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution has been hotly debated since the very foundation of our nation:

    Thomas Jefferson (third U.S. president and author of the Declaration of Independence): "I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution. I would be willing to depend on that alone for the reduction of the administration of our government to the general principle of the Constitution; I mean an additional article, taking from the federal government their power of borrowing." . . . "A democracy cannot work with an ignorant electorate. They will elect and return the worse people to power."

    IF government had always been required to balance our budget, we would have spent a lot less time at deadly war, and we would NOT be nearly $15 Trillion in unpayable generational debt. BUT very sadly we are, and the imminent collapse of the worth less U.S. Dollar will dramatically damage the entire worldwide economy.

    The basic rule of reasonable borrowing is: "Never borrow money on any depreciating item." In some cases it may be acceptable to borrow money for revenue-generating projects where the profit or capital gain is much larger than the interest. But, Does it make any sense at all to use your credit card to buy hamburgers, and then not pay the bill at the end of the month? You may still be paying interest on those unhealthy hamburgers - months after you ate them.

    So it is with America's enormous national debt. Families and governments MUST learn to live within their means. The fact that we have so many decades of unpayable debt is only going to make the collapse trauma many times worse, than if we had always balanced our budget (as under the prosperous Clinton Administration).

    America is guaranteed that we will soon balance our budget - either by intelligent spending reduction and equitable revenue generation, OR BY TRAUMATIC DEBT DEFAULT and NATIONWIDE BANKRUPCY. Which pain do you prefer?

    USA is probably way past the tipping point. The catastrophic choices have already been made.
    Indecision was a BAD decision. The consequences are very close indeed. What will we do?

    America now borrows for the wrong things and reasons. If we borrowed less, we would have to spend much less on things like interest, making unjustified war, being the world's policeman, political waste, fraud, and abuse, gross redundancy, extreme inefficiency, subsidizing things that are suicidally unsustainable, and tax cuts for people making millions of dollars a year.

     

    Inefficient Government Agency Redundancy, Duplication of Effort, Assignment Overlap and Functional Fragmentation

    In his 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama pledged to “eliminate wasteful redundancy. . . . too often, federal departments take on functions or services that are already being done or could be done elsewhere within the federal government more effectively. The result is unnecessary redundancy.”

    March 1, 2011, The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) published their required report, which documents that Obama has NOT kept his 2008 promise to eliminate unnecessary redundancy. http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d11318sp.pdf

    Almost none of the above government programs have metrics in place to provide Congressional oversight of their effectiveness, or the trillions of dollars of potential savings that abound in our grossly-inefficient endlessly-redundant government bloated bureaucracies. Are all government agencies doing their job well? Why do so many have similar assignments? When we have a hundred redundant agencies working on the same problem, does it get done more efficiently? Does it get done at all?

    There is NO transparency, or public awareness of the terrible job that Congress has done for a century (including World Wars, The Great Depression, and many recessions).

    When a problem arises today, Congress argues over the solution, ignores the flawed agencies that should have prevented the problem in the first place, passes a new bill, and creates new redundant pork-barrel non-transparent bureaucracies to deal with the problems - When the EXISTING agencies should have been monitored, reprimanded, and repaired to do what they should have been doing all along.

    My wife and I have Top Secret security clearances, so we can work on advanced-technology development projects. We have first-hand knowledge of endless inefficient, waste, fraud, abuse, redundancy, overlap, fragmentation, and plain-old laughable stupidity on many classified government projects (which we can never discuss publicly). These classified redundancies are not mentioned in the GAO redundancy report. Congressional oversight is absolutely NOT doing their job !

    It is lack of transparency, laziness, and gridlocked pork-barrel partisan politics that creates trillions of dollars of avoidable government waste

    The 9/11 Commission Report publically exposed enormous fragmentation and deadly miscommunication that prevented life-critical actionable intelligence from getting to the disconnected expensive federal agencies that could have prevented or mitigated the terrible 9/11/2001 national disaster (and the trillion dollar wars and loss of life that followed).

    Many of the essential 9/11 Commission Report recommendations have STILL not been implemented today

    Homeland Security and so-called "intelligence" agencies are expensive, ineffective, farcical jokes. USA IS STILL VERY INSECURE

     

    The following outlines the 34 mission areas studied in the GAO Redundancy Report: http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d11318sp.pdf

    34. Coordination essential to reduce fragmentation of financial literacy efforts

    More than 20 different agencies; about 56 programs involved

     

    Congress can no longer claim ignorance of their above redundant bloated bureaucracies

    GAO let the rabid cat out of the bag - Informed 99% voters are getting more angry than ever before

    Will these avoidable redundancies become high-priority issues in the 2012 debt-reduction election campaign?

    Do nearly-illiterate mediocre-minded American voters ever read any government spending-reduction reports?

    We could use the money saved by redundancy elimination to create millions of new living-wage jobs

    Lazy legislators need to READ the reports they are given and take immediate decisive action to remedy the expensive waste they have created

    Redundancy-reduction heroes should do much better in the polls than those who resist elimination of unproductive pork-barrel waste

    Gridlocked indecision IS a decision. Why would any person in Congress want to perpetuate U.S. pervasive unproductive redundancy (other than corruption)

     

    The above list of U.S. government massive redundancies and inefficiencies CAN NEVER HAPPEN within Emerald Eco-City

    I developed and taught large-scale Enterprise Architecture at IBM. At one time, I was IBM's top consultant in Enterprise Object Modeling (before I started my own consulting business. It was income from my win-win Enterprise Architecture contributions to international corporations that made me financially independent, and able to do what I am doing for you for free today).

    From day one, our Emerald Eco-City proposal has ALWAYS been developed with scalable Enterprise Architecture, which guarantees NO unnecessary redundancy.

    The entire sustainable, self-contained, self-sufficient Emerald Eco-City plan is optimized to accelerate integration, consolidation, cooperation and, interoperability - eliminating waste. Every output from every ecocity process is a valuable input to another process. Every ecocity function is scientifically optimized in its relationship with every other function.

    Many unprecedented, extremely-efficient, economy-of-scale Enterprise Architecture details are presented throughout the other pages on this free website.

     

    Merely fixing the existing redundancies in the U.S. government is a long-overdue small start, but NOT NEARLY ENOUGH

    One issue is that Congress needs to STOP creating more inefficient pork-barrel redundancy in the future. Senator Tom Coburn submitted a bipartisan legislation-transparency proposal in the Senate to do just that. Citizens Against Government Waste enthusiastically endorsed the proposal, and so do we.

    “For every bill considered by the Senate:

    1) an analysis by the Congressional Research Service to determine if the bill creates any new federal program, office, or initiative that would duplicate or overlap any existing federal program, office, or initiative with similar mission, purpose, goals, or activities along with a listing of all of the overlapping or duplicative federal program or programs, office or offices, or initiative or initiatives; and

    2) an explanation provided by the committee as to why the creation of each new program, office, or initiative is necessary if a similar program or programs, office or offices, or initiative or initiatives already exist.”

    In order to rapidly and efficiently accomplish Coburn's valuable redundancy transparency goal, the Congressional Research Service will have to have access to a comprehensive government-wide object / project function guide, which is at the heart of effective Enterprise Object Models. The need for a comprehensive well-designed Enterprise Object Model will increase the motivation to build one. The effort will improve Enterprise Modeling tools and techniques, which will eventually benefit the entire world (the same way the U.S. Internet has done). A good, scalable, efficient, Government-Wide Comprehensive Enterprise Model will be self-sustaining, as new legislation creates new project functions, and eliminates expensive redundancies that still exist today.

    When the U.S. government first started to embrace IBM's Enterprise Architecture in the 1990's, they wasted a lot of taxpayer dollars on inexperienced, inconsistent, non-IBM wannabe Enterprise Architects. They spent a decade reinventing the existing Enterprise Modeling wheel, and came up with a rectangular clunker that did NOT roll. This setback in BAD Enterprise Architecture has been responsible for hundreds of billions of dollars of wasteful government spending, and unaudited amounts of unnecessary redundancy, duplication of effort, fragmentation, miscommunication, waste, fraud, and abuse (that was only partially mentioned in the March 2011 GAO Redundancy Report).

     

    BACK IN BLACK - What America desperately needs to do IMMEDIATELY

    Senator Tom Coburn (M.D.) was a member of the U.S. Senate bipartisan "Gang of Six" - trying in vain to improve the quality, and reduce the cost of our bloated inefficient government bureaucracies. We don't agree with most of his politics and involvement with scandals, but Coburn has been trying to do his job better than most Senators.

    For years, Dr. Coburn has assigned his congressional staff to study every government agency report (from GAO, OMB, etc.) gathering specific recommendations to reduce unnecessary, ineffective, government spending. They have compiled a powerful 621-page book of Republican AND Democrat ideas titled "Back In Black."

    http://coburn.senate.gov/public//index.cfm?a=Files.Serve&File_id=c6590d01-017a-47b0-a15c-1336220ea7bf

    Back In Black provides specific solution proposals to deal with government programs that are:

    Not Needed — Serves no vital or essential federal role or has outlived its intended purpose.

    Does Not Meet Any Need — Little or no evidence to demonstrate results or effectiveness achieving stated goals.

    Wasteful — Significant amounts of silly or unjustifiable expenditures.

    Duplicative — Redundancy that overlaps existing government agencies functions or initiatives.

    Not a Priority at this Time — Mission cannot be justified within today's budgetary constraints.

    Not Cost Effective — Benefits do not exceed the costs.

    Parochial — Serves a local or special interest with no overriding federal role and exceeds the limited powers granted to Congress enumerated in Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution.

    Mismanaged — Significant amounts of erroneous, fraudulent and improper expenditures, excessive overhead and administrative costs, or otherwise poorly administered or implemented.

    I do not agree with all of Senator Coburn's politics (he has most certainly made some mistakes in his political career), BUT Back In Black is a comprehensive list of bipartisan specific ways that America can rapidly reduce our national budget by NINE TRILLION DOLLARS over a ten year period, without serious damage to our society or economy.

    No other congress person, and no other current document, has so much time and effort invested in it to produce such a valuable document. It contains things that please everyone. Some argue that Tom Coburn may be the ONLY person in Congress who is earning his salary.

    Back In Black asks for equitable shared sacrifice from everyone, no special interests are protected. Parts of it will bother everyone in the country - Different strokes for different folks.

    America does not have to implement all of Back In Black today, but half of it would be a great start toward a balanced budget, and eliminating the need to borrow more money.

    One of our gigantic U.S. government errors is that Congress writes 2,000+ page omnibus bills. They are guaranteed to hide good-old-boy pork-barrel waste, fraud, abuse, redundancy and unwanted duplication of effort.

    Here is a unique suggestion: Why don't we break out every plainly-written topic in Back In Black (and any other bipartisan ideas) and have a quick up-or-down, no-debate, roll-call vote on each one individually. Congressional debates are a silly partisan waste of time - Legislators NEVER change their mind as a result of a debate. Most votes are cast along corrupt party platform lines, NOT rational open-minded thinking by learning legislators.

    After the individual roll-call votes, legislators could take the ones that Congress likes and put them in legislative language, ready for the President to sign. With minimal effort, taxpayers would save trillions of dollars, OR we would know for sure the names of the intransigent legislators who want to continue corruption-as-usual - so voters can remove them from office.

    "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty." - Thomas Jefferson

    Transparency leads to liberty

     

    Here is one excerpt from Back In Black that most Americans should like - How refreshing to hear this from an influential Republican Senator:

    End Benefits, Unnecessary Subsidies, Corrupt Loopholes, and Tax Breaks for Millionaires

    "Each year the federal government pays billions in cash and benefits to millionaires - Americans reporting an adjusted gross income (AGI) of $1 million or more. For example, in terms of cash benefits, in 2008, the Department of Labor's Unemployment Insurance program paid 2,804 people with an AGI of $1
    million or more over $18.6 million. In fact, 17 of these reported an AGI of $10 million or more on their 2008 Tax Return.

    "In the same year, the Social Security Administration paid 56,587 million-dollar-earners over $1.54 billion in retirement benefits. Of these, 2,511 reported an AGI of $10 million or more.99
    A number of tax breaks also exist for millionaires, just as they exist for less fortunate Americans. In 2008, 34,348 millionaires deducted over $162 million in business expenses, while 209,116 millionaires wrote-off over $7 billion through the mortgage interest deduction.

    "The purpose behind other payments of federal funds to millionaires is even less clear. For example, the National Endowment for the Arts ("NEA") made a $25,000 grant to multimillionaire Quincy Jones (winner of 27 Grammy Awards) in 2008 through its NEA Jazz Masters program.

    "The NEA also honors achievement in Opera and in 2008 made a $25,000 grant to millionaire James Levine - an internationally celebrated conductor.

    "The United States Department of Agriculture also doles out millions each year in cash benefits to millionaires. For example, in 2010, USDA paid eight millionaires over $74 million through its Wetlands Reserve Program, which was established to give landowners the opportunity to protect, restore, and enhance wetlands on their property.

    "Millionaires can afford to 'protect, restore, and enhance wetlands' with their own money.

    "At this point in our country's history, deep in a financial crisis, our government cannot continue to make grants and pay benefits to individuals that do not need them. Means-testing government programs and eliminating benefits to wealthy Americans is a simple step toward fiscal responsibility.

    "Moreover, millionaires do not need these benefits and can easily live without them. The government safety net should be provided to those with true need."

     

    Senator Coburn's Back In Black is less-than perfect, and it is sometimes humorously hypocritical and self contradictory: ". . . federal agencies (excluding DoD) – spend nearly $1.3 billion a year on office printing. . . . (mostly) unnecessary." The 621-page Back In Black book was published on tree-killing bureaucratic-government paper, with expensive full-color ink - ALL government documents should ONLY be available electronically. (chuckle) Just because a book or bible contains some obvious flaws does NOT mean that it has no value at all.

     

    Rational Future Infrastructure Borrowing

    If we are going to borrow anything at all, it should be for high-profit long-term projects that create good living-wage jobs with family benefits.

    All other old burdensome ineffective debts should be quickly paid off, and NEVER REPEATED AGAIN

    Our USA national infrastructure is now rated number 26 in the world (well BELOW many third-world countries). Our engineers tell us we need a minimum of $2 Trillion of repair work on our Interstate highways, pot holes, and crumbling dangerous bridges. We need to catch up to the world leaders, and develop 250+ mph super-efficient ELECTRIC TRAINS (in anticipation of the end of low-cost air travel). Our education system is abysmal. We are firing teachers, police, fire, nurses, social workers, etc. Only the government can stop the collapse of America's nation-wide critical infrastructure, and yet short-sighted, selfish, immediate-gratification politicians want to slash spending on our children's future.

    Restoring American greatness and laying an advanced-technology foundation for the future would be a great way to put people to work, at a time when interest rates are low. Government does NOT need to fund 100% of this effort with taxpayer dollars. We just need to set goals and incentives, and let the magic of venture capital handling the heavy lifting, just like the way the Internet dream rapidly spread around the world in less than eight years with PRIVATE VENTURE CAPITAL, NOT TAXES. What is sadly missing today is a compelling vision of a superior future for our children.

    If (when) USA defaults on our debt payments, goes bankrupt (soon), and no one will lend us any money at all, we will suddenly and catastrophically be FORCED to spend no more than what we have. Imports will have to end traumatically. A negative balance of trade will NOT be possible. We will then not even be able to borrow money for profitable future infrastructure projects, etc. Millions more people will surely starve. Is this the terrible legacy that selfish baby boomers really intended to leave for their children?

    America raised our faux debt ceiling 78 times in the last 51 years - 18 times under Reagan, and 7 times under spendthrift Bush / Cheney. THIS TREND IS UNSUSTAINABLE.

    Some people think that raising the debt limit allows Congress to enact more spending bills. But actually, America's previous in-place laws REQUIRE the debt ceiling to be raised every year, just to pay our past debts, unfunded existing commitments and legal liabilities. To stop raising our unpayable debt burden on our children, we would have to repeal much of our existing spending legislation for military, homeland security, education, food programs, health care, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and ALL FEDERAL EMPLOYEES and SUBCONTRACTORS - putting millions more out of a job. It would be terribly regressive - impacting the working class much more than millionaires and billionaires.

    Suppose you borrow $25,000 to buy a gas-guzzling inefficient American SUV. You run up $20,000 in credit cards debt (buying gasoline, alcohol, food, etc.). You get to the point where you can't make ends meet, so you bring your family together, and argue about whether you should pay your past debts.

    This is what happened in 2011 when freshman Tea Party intransigent, infantile idiots took control of the U.S. House of Representatives, and hijacked the American political agenda. Their legislation set out to reduce taxes for parasitic billionaires, while reducing support and increasing taxes on working class and poor Americans.

    40% of American children are born into impoverished families eligible for Medicaid

    Shall we terminate their only health care safety net?

    HR 2560 Republican Balanced Budget Amendment passed by the House of Representatives
    limits total federal spending to no more than 18% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP)
    That is only enough to pay for our military budget (which they want to increase), plus
    Social Security, and interest our our existing national debt - That leaves ZERO for Medicare,
    Medicaid, education, food safety, disease control, FAA, or anything else being done today

    There is apparently no love or compassion in our evil greedy corpocracy Tea Party


    86% of Americans who were polled do NOT want Congress to keep increasing the Debt Ceiling burden that we are forcing on our children and grandchildren, BUT, 84% of Americans disapproved of the infantile way Republicans used the Debt Ceiling in July 2011 to threaten the U.S. economy and embarrass USA in front of the world. An August 1, 2011 CNN / ORC poll found that more than three quarters of Americans felt that Congress behaved like "spoiled children" squabbling over their extreme political views. Non-learning American voters have such a short attention span that they will probably re-elect most of the corrupt criminal stubborn brats that nearly destroyed the American economy.

     

    "The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn't get worse every time Congress meets" - Will Rogers - Deep debt is deadly suicide

    The Newt Gingrich "Contract With America" promised a Balanced Budget Amendment, BUT, during the 8 years of the corrupt Bush / Cheney Administration, the dishonest self-serving Republicans INCREASED THE DEBT CEILING SEVEN TIMES! Under big-oil-and-G.E.-corrupted President Ronald Reagan, Republicans increased the debt ceiling 18 TIMES, and increased tax revenues 11 TIMES. The Tea Party is most certainly anti-Reagan.

    In 2011 the misleading Republicans hypocritically said that our debt ceiling problem is all Obama's fault, and they refused to do for him what they so freely did for themselves. The truth is that endless Congressional corruption is universal and bipartisan.

    Bill Clinton raised taxes, balanced the budget, accumulated a $7 Trillion surplus, and created 23 million new American jobs.

    Bush / Cheney said that America needed lower taxes for multi-millionaires and billionaires, squandered Clinton's surplus, drove gasoline pump price from $1.47 to over $4, destroyed 8 million American jobs, caused millions of home foreclosures, doubled the national debt to twice what it had ever been since World War II, and blew a $15 Trillion hole in the American economy in September 2008. From which we have still NOT recovered to this very day.

    As a Senator, Obama voted against Republican debt ceiling increases:

    Senator Obama's Floor Speech, March 20, 2006: "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can't pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. . . . Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

    We agree with 2006 Senator Obama, NOT flip flopping, inept, corrupted, 2011 President Obama. The changes that Obama promised in 2008 totally failed.

    Obama Deserves NO RESPECT from anyone with a functional brain, but Republicans proved to be many times worse in 2011.

    ALL DEBT CEILING INCREASES ARE ALWAYS AN ECONOMIC MISTAKE - WE MUST LIVE WITHIN OUR FINITE MEANS
    Deficit Spending is NOT sustainable - America is on the edge of a total economic collapse cliff - Moving at an insane suicidal irreversible speed

    It has now become obvious that knee-jerk American voters in November, 2011 ushered into office a divided dysfunctional government
    of spoiled-brat children, who care nothing about defaulting on national debt payments, in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution.

    Every time Congress immorally increases the Faux Debt Ceiling, and the President signs it, they are
    going against the vast majority of the people who elected them to office, but
    failure to pay America's debt and contractual obligations, will destroy our fragile economy even faster.

    Recent polls show that: (1) 70% of Americans STILL want a mandatory Balanced Budget Amendment (the last time it was voted on in 1995 it passed the House, but failed by only one corrupt Senator's vote, and again in 1996 it failed by only two votes - As a Senator, Joe Biden was a strong supporter of the Balanced Budget Amendment, but he flip flopped and opposed it as Obama's Vice President). 49 of the American states are already phasing in state balanced budget amendments.

    (2) 81% of Americans want to restore income tax rates for millionaires to where they were when Bill Clinton had a budget surplus (millionaire fair share tax rate was only 3.6% higher than today - Fair taxes would restore $4 TRILLION (four thousand billion) in tax revenue over ten years, and be a major step toward balancing our irresponsible deficit spending budget), and

    (3) 74% of Americans want to end billions of dollars a year in unnecessary subsidies for oil and gas companies (which are the most profitable businesses that have ever existed in the history of the world).

    Does Big Oil Really Need MORE PROFIT at the expense of those who can least afford it? 74% of Americans clearly say NO.
    Corrupt Spoiled-Brat Infantile Republicans In Congress Continue To Stomp Their Foot and Demand YES!

    Congress is absolutely NOT representing the vast majority desires of well-over two thirds of their constituents.
    Their biased balanced budget amendment was an outrageous elimination of social-support systems, and protection for billionaire tax breaks.

    No wonder Congress' approval rating FELL TO ONLY 13% - an all time low in August 2011. I am surprised it is more than zero. The very-corrupt Republican "House of REPRESENTATIVES" makes almost NO effort to represent America. In the Senate, the minority "filibuster" blocks majority opinion on most important legislation.

    76% of Americans, and even the majority of Republican voters, strongly object to the obviously-corrupt Ryan budget that the House passed in 2011, which attempted to end Medicare as we know it, so Republicans can give tax breaks from 35% down to only 25% to wealthy millionaires and billionaires (who bribe them with millions of dollars in immoral unethical campaign donations). These criminals are robbing the public purse, wearing a transparent face mask.

    Endless corruption SHOULD end their political careers, but NOTHING IN AMERICAN BIG-MONEY-CONTROLLED POLITICS IS RATIONAL

    The July 19, 2011 outrageous Republican-House-passed their "Cut, Cap, and Balance Bill." It was even worse than the Ryan budget bill. It slashes the budget for social programs even lower. It gives Republicans the ability to TOTALLY ELIMINATE ANY EXPENDITURE (like Social Security, Medicare, Medicare, universal health care, food programs for the poor, education funding, etc.) by merely 51 votes - a simple majority in the Senate. HOWEVER, Cut Cap and Balance requires a 2 / 3 super majority of the House and Senate to close tax loopholes, like hedge-fund-manager 15% capital gains tax, and tax subsidies for big oil companies, corporate jet owners, etc.

    In the previous continuing budget resolution, Republicans insisted on cutting already-insufficient funding for food inspection, FBI agents, overload air traffic controllers, construction projects, flu shots, food for the needy, clean water grants, pre-schools / schools / Pell grants, scientific research, community health centers, and crumbling transportation infrastructure maintenance and innovation. Americans can expect Republicans to slash all of those projects and many more in the future - In order to preserve tax cuts for millionaires, and huge subsidies for the oil companies that own Republicans and the radical fanatical Tea Party organizations (funded largely by Koch brothers big oil).

    Republicans tried to hold the debt ceiling hostage unless Cut, Cap, and Balance was passed by the Senate, and submitted to the 50 states for ratification. Insistence on this stupidity would drive America into default, and destroy our fragile jobless recovery. July 19 was the final straw that could break America's back (unless Republicans drop their extremely-corrupt demands). The alternative that Tea Party Republicans want is to blow a $20+ Trillion hole in the U.S. economy - outrageous unprecedented partisan insanity.

    Republican big-money corruption is being proclaimed with hundreds of very-loud trumpets to extremely-upset working-class voters

    Paul Ryan drinks $350-per-bottle fine wine at public restaurants - with his multi-million-dollar-per-year hedge-fund-manager drinking buddies, who profit greatly from tax breaks that corrupt Congress enacted just for them (so they only pay 15% per year capital gains tax, instead of the 35% Bush / Cheney progressive income tax rate).

    For New York City's largest unproductive parasitic hedge fund managers, that is over a $200,000,000 per year inequitable tax break per person!

    The Republicans who support Paul Ryan apparently have NO connection with, or concern about, burdening the working class with heavy taxes that SHOULD be paid by the rich for the income that they earn. At town hall meetings, many of Ryan's own working class constituents that elected him now BOO and ridicule his obvious big-money corruption.

    However, almost all Republicans in the House and Senate voted for the Ryan "road to disaster" budget, and the much-worse "cut, cap, and balance" budget. How many of these corporation-corrupted legislators will be re-elected by non-learning mediocre-majority Republican voters? (Probably most of them - How very sad for America)

    Voters who ignore or reject the documented TRUTH continue to get the terrible government and excessive burdensome debt and taxes that they deserve. They refuse to accept obvious cause and effect. The predictable economic collapse of America will be their self-created suicidal reward for their virulent ignorance

    Do you care? Are you prepared? Will you remain silent and just "wait and see" until total corruption is too late to correct?

    Suppose an international event triggers total collapse tomorrow - much worse than in 2008.

    Who will you blame? Would you wish you had done anything different YESTERDAY?

    Remember the above prophetic words - I won't get a chance to say "I told you so", when the Internet infrastructure grinds to a halt - It will be far too late to prevent generational suicide.

    Those Who Care WILL Prepare NOW - Will you?

    Paul Ryan's 25% tax rate for the wealthy is only 71% of what they are paying now (which is already bankrupting America). Ryan's budget is many times worse than the terrible Bush / Cheney 3.6% tax reduction for millionaires (from 39.6% down to 35%), which blew a $15 Trillion hole in the 2008 economy.

    2011 Republican House Cut, Cap, and Balance is much worse than the Ryan Road To Ruin.

    If the Bush / Cheney tax cuts for millionaires caused the deficit-spending crash of 2008, WHAT WOULD THE MUCH-WORSE 2011 TEA-PARTY REPUBLICAN BUDGETS DO?

    After the 2001 Bush / Cheney tax cuts for the wealthy, Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill told the administration that their over-$500-Billion budget deficit threatened the entire U.S. economy. Cheney told O'Neil: "You know Paul, Reagan proved deficits don't matter, . . . We won the midterms (congressional elections). This is our due."

    One month later, Cheney fired O'Neil for his rational thinking. The administration passed a second round of unfunded tax cuts for the wealthy.

    John Snow, who replaced O'Neill as Treasury Secretary, insisted that "deficits do matter." Snow was replaced by Henry Paulson, the criminal CEO of Goldman Sachs.

    The predictable disaster was the Bush / Cheney / Paulson 2008 largest recession since The Great Depression, and gigantic bailout of Goldman Sachs, et. al.

    If tax cuts drove USA deep into unpayable debt (compared to the Clinton budget surplus), then will much-larger future Republican tax cuts for the mega-rich solve the problem?

    If the board is already too short, will cutting it again and again make it longer? HOW STUPID CAN NON-LEARNING VOTERS POSSIBLY BE ? !

     

    PLEASE Learn From Well-Documented History

    The Republican Paul Ryan budget says that the tax rate for the wealthy should be REDUCED even further to only 25% - Increasing our budget deficit perhaps $20 TRILLION dollars.

    From WW I I until 1975, the tax rate for the top 2% was NEVER LESS THAN 70% (twice what it is today). That was a time of great growth and prosperity in America. The number of USA millionaires exploded. Millions of new jobs were created year after year. We heavily funded infrastructure development and world-class leading edge R & D. We created the Interstate highway system, integrated circuit computers, super software, fiber optics, solar-and-wind energy systems, the Internet, and left five electric cars on the Moon!

    Bush / Cheney's unfunded regressive tax reductions for the top 2% terminated all such progress. NOW, corrupt Republicans want to end Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and eliminate even the 15% capital gains tax - so that billionaires will pay ZERO INCOME TAX AT ALL! Gullible Republican and Tea Party voters love such outrageous greedy politics.

     

    Any government anywhere in the world can exist only with the consent of the governed
    - America is long overdue for a major radical revolution

    The Boston Tea Party was a revolutionary response to the British Stamp Act - tax increases without representation.
    (It is why many Americans now drink coffee, instead of healthier tea.)

    Today's U.S. deficit spending is stealing much more net worth from Americans than British taxes did in the 1700's - It is happening WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.

    The largest TAX in America by far is the rapid devaluation of the U.S. dollar

    Thomas Jefferson wrote America's Declaration of Independence. Jefferson fought hard against second President John Adams' big-government Federalist party politics. Jefferson became the third President of the United States, and began dismantling Adams' big government. Jefferson wrote that: "Every generation needs a new revolution." We strongly agree.

    A patriotic red, white, and blue revolution against America's current corrupt bloated big government is long overdue. IF the Congress refuses to immediately undo the deficit spending that destroyed our dollar, then total economic collapse WILL require a radical revolution to reinvent what America SHOULD have always been in the first place - Living within our means, while laying a solid foundation for our prosperous sustainable future.

    Americans do NOT live in a representative democracy. We have become an OUTRAGEOUS CORPOCRISY HYPOCRISY that only benefits the top 2% for the short term

    "Representatives" do NOT represent 95% their constituents in any way - In our instant-communication electronic age, Congress is an ancient (pre-telephone) artifact of government corruption. Governance of the people, by the people, and for the people needs to be RADICALLY RESTRUCTURED for total instantaneous electronic transparency, and a weekly comprehensive, secure, biometric electronic referendum on all critical issues. Representative and Senators can write bills, but the people should control the acceptance of major changes to American Law.

     

    Today's Off-The-Shelf Cost-Effective Biometric Technology

    For many years now, Walt Disney theme parks and others have used biometric scanners to eliminate fraudulent use of annual passes. Tens-of-thousands of visitors are quickly processed every day at every park. Computers and cell phones offer built-in biometric scan options (but the USA is slower in implementing modern security technology than many other nations). Republicans want cheap illegal alien workers, and Democrats want illegal alien votes to get reelected. Government corruption is the only thing that prevents cost-effective biometric security and fraud elimination in America today.

    In 2011, India used off-the-shelf biometrics for their nationwide census. They created a National Population Register, which is now the world's largest biometric database with 1.2 billion people's: name, 12-digit unique identification number, picture, complete fingerprints, and other census-related data. This information is used by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) for online authentication of all types of transactions, such as employment, voting, welfare benefits, etc. Indians do not even have to carry an ID card. Biometrics recognize every registered citizen. This system replaces the need for all other previous ID cards. Fingerprints, facial recognition software, and historical data can all be used in real-time for many crime-elimination and secure-access purposes. It is just as fast as a modern American credit card transaction. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_census_of_India http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unique_Identification_Authority_of_India

    How much did India's comprehensive biometric population database solution cost? it was estimated to be $4.60 (in USD) per person. It actually cost only $448 million, less than half a dollar per person!

    Can America afford biometrics? Would it be worth a few dollars per U.S. resident to eliminate hundreds of billions of dollars of fraudulent crime every year?

    It is truly insane for America to NOT follow the leadership of technology-savvy India in the use of biometric identification of EVERYONE.

    America cannot afford to wait until 2020 or 2030 to do our own biometric census - The delay will drive USA many more trillions of dollars in hopeless debt.

    If the American government is too STUPID to understand how to cost effectively implement our own National Population Register with off-the-shelf biometric technology, then we should immediately hire India (with a proven track record) to do it for us for less than one billion dollars!

    Consider America's current expensive illegal alien problems. They significantly contribute to the U.S. trillion-dollar-per-year budget deficit. Shortsighted inept politicians have proposed spending $100 billion to build a fence along one of the USA borders. Even if they construct twin 50-foot-high electrified fences with a moat and alligators between, it will NOT begin to solve the problem that a one-billion-dollar biometric system would immediately solve.

    40% of America's undocumented aliens entered the country legally, and then just overstayed their visa. No fence will solve this problem. A southern fence will not block terrorists from entering via the northern border, or along the east-or-west coastlines. A border fence will not remove the 12+ million undocumented criminal aliens who are currently illegally receiving the benefits of U.S. residency. A LOW-COST BIOMETRIC SECURITY SYSTEM CLEARLY CAN!

     

    Modern Biometrics Facilitate Ancient Direct-Vote Democracy

    In the original form of Athenian democracy, EVERY concerned citizen had the opportunity to vote directly every week on every change to the law - A white pebble ("vote") for "Yes", a black pebble for "No." They had the technology to make it work well 2500 year ago. How much better is our Internet electronic biometric technology today! Wikipedia: Athenian Democracy

    Every line item on every bill should have the name of every author, and the Representatives and Senators who support or oppose it. The people must know the source of corruption, so they can purge it from the system. Anything less perpetuates autocratic aristocratic tyranny from the oppressive elite deceit.

    Will elite politics-as-usual ever approve such things - Of course not! - How will we ever improve our badly-broken system of greed, habitual lies, and endless deceit? It was the citizens of Athens who created successful democracy - NOT the aristocratic ruling class. Modern America is a plutocray of the elite, NOT a majority-rules democracy.

    Can voter revolution be far away? Will voting for the other party correct the source of bipartisan political corruption? NO Way Jose!

    Wealthy media moguls and greedy corporations and bankers strictly control the corruption options we are allowed to vote on.

    Many greedy politicians have said that America MUST keep raising the Debt Ceiling, or we will default on our existing debt, and no one will lend us money at such a low rate ever again.

    Some people say that raising the debt ceiling will allow Congress to write new spending bills.

    Irresponsible debt is the source of the problem - More debt is the opposite of the solution

    Going bankrupt may be a good thing, IF it teaches America to live within our means - It will be traumatic for a time, But the dollar must collapse soon - one way or another - We are way past the debt limit tipping point - Disastrous economic collapse is almost 100% guaranteed

    November 1995, and December 1995, Congress refused to increase the Debt Ceiling, and essentially shut down the government until January 1996. The DJIA increased several percentage points, and Congress began to balance the national budget until the end of the Clinton administration (when Bush / Cheney began their deficit-spending rampage).

    LOWERING our suicidal national debt ceiling is essential to balancing our out-of-control budget, which is necessary to restore jobs and nationwide prosperity !

    We cannot implement a Balanced Budget Amendment fast enough. We must STOP INCREASING THE DEBT CEILING IMMEDIATELY!

    WE MUST PROVIDE MANY NEW LIVING-WAGE JOBS FOR AMERICANS - Local food coops could provide part of the long-overdue answer

    We also need to specify the funding priorities for the tax dollars that we do take in. We need to pay our debt service to stay afloat. We need to pay our brave soldiers that we have sent into harm's way. We need to stop being the world's policeman. We need to invest in profitable future education and local domestic infrastructure that lowers costs.

    The last item on the priority list is funding the benefits and salaries of legislators who refuse to do what voters demand that they do.

    Do you think our government will ever do the right thing? Revolution and collapse are getting closer with each incremental deficit-spending dollar.

    Every member of Congress costs Americans many times more than their salary and benefits - perhaps billions of dollars of pork-barrel corruption each (with a $3.7 Trillion badly bloated budget). The Senate should begin by reducing its size to 50 members. The House should be no more than 100. Term limits should be no more than six years. Seniority should be determined by legislators who bring about the changes that the majority of Americas say they want in large-scale electronic polls.

    All bureaucratic government agencies need to find ways to slash their numbers at least in half, and be much-more efficient and effective than they are today. Refusal to raise the debt limit, and default on our international loans would be one catastrophic way to force our corrupt government to live within its means. Does anyone else have a better way?

    Information technology is part of the answer. I know from years of first-hand experience that our government computer systems are a disorganized disgusting redundant inefficient mess, with WAY TOO MUCH EAISILY-ELIMINATED MANUAL LABOR, SECRECY, AND MISCOMMUNICATION INVOLVED. 9/11/2001 was only a small demonstration, which has STILL not been completely corrected to this very day.

    Do you think that those who currently have a choke hold on political power today will voluntarily give it up? Will they ever give us a chance to vote on it? HELL NO!

    Sometimes it takes an avoidable crisis to bring about long-overdue structural innovation

    In 2010, America was already bankrupt. Total federal government tax revenues were only enough to pay for mandatory spending (roughly 60% of our budget). Every other penny we spent was borrowed. We suicidally borrowed the money we used to pay for military, homeland security, FBI, CIA, FDA, CDC, infrastructure repairs, subsidies for big oil companies, farms, biofuel from food, schools, high-value research projects, big business bailouts, the salaries for government employees and EVERYTHING else.

    Senator Alan Simpson (co-chair of the bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform) plainly said:
    "Our Congress and President are STUPID!"

    On our current stupid path, our insane federal government spending would look like this in 2020:

    2020 U.S. Budget Percentages

     

    President Obama said that by 2025, our entire U.S. budget would be consumed by:
    Social Security, Interest, Medicare and Medicaid alone

    Baby Boomer Alzheimer's Disease will consume the entire Medicare budget
    (aggravated by boomer permissive drug abuse and avoidable bad lifestyle choices)

    There will be NO FEDERAL MONEY AVAILABLE FOR ANYTHING ELSE
    We might be spending over a TRILLION dollars a year just for interest !

     

    "Fiat Currency" Always Collapses Catastrophically

    The Latin word “fiat” means “an arbitrary decree by a presumed authority” or “a legally binding order.”

    No nation can be created and maintained by bureaucratic fiat alone. It does not matter that a country is ruled by a blood-line pharaoh, caesar, emperor, violent autocratic military dictatorship, communism, socialism, representative republic, democracy, or religious theocracy – ALL GOVERNMENTS RECEIVE THEIR POWER AND AUTHORITY THROUGH THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED.

    "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty." - Thomas Jefferson

    If a sufficient number of subjects become sufficiently dissatisfied with their government, they can (and do) revolt and topple those who are responsible for the failure of the nation, often by violent revolution (as is happening around the world today).

    The U.S. Declaration of Independence even formalized this process: “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, - That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government.” - Which is likely to happen again in America very soon. The only questions are whether it will be violent and traumatic radical anarchy, or not.

    Governments and government fiats exist only through the faith of those who voluntarily submit to them.

    They are all faith-based institutions (even those governments that are atheistic).

    dollar bill, legal tender for all debts? “Fiat money” or a “fiat currency” is government-decreed “legal tender” (medium of exchange) that is created out of thin air and has no intrinsic value whatsoever other than blind, dumb faith in the institution that issued it (“the full faith and credit of the nation”).

    Will Rogers talked about Great Depression fiat currency: "It must be marvelous to belong to some legislative body and just pick money out of the air." . . . "The budget is a mythical beanbag. Congress votes mythical beans into it, and then tries to reach in and pull real beans out." . . . "A man can make a million over night and he is on every page in the morning. But it never tells who gave up the million he got. You can't get money without taking it from somebody."

     

    No one is required to accept any intrinsically-worthless fiat currency. A merchant may demand to be paid in blueberries, or anything else of value to the vendor. Historically, eggs and chickens have been used to pay for medical treatment, etc.

    "Time banks" are emerging that allow one to exchange hours of their time for the products or services of other time bank members. Formalized barter systems can survive and thrive among local individuals when a fiat currency totally collapses due to irresponsible government corruption.

    The medium of exchange for all financial transactions is negotiable, no matter what the government-fiat legal tender may be.

    When a government falters, or the nation enters a recession, rapid inflation can occur and the value of the fiat-currency legal tender of the day may plummet precipitously.

    Since World War II, ten of the United States’ eleven recessions were triggered by rapid increases in the pump price of petroleum. Rising energy prices greatly devalue any fiat currency.

    Paper fiat money originated in 11th century China. It gained widespread use during the Yuan and Ming dynasties. The “Yuan” (¥) is still the name of the “Renminbi” fiat currency of the People’s Republic of China today. Without major economic disruption, in this one instance, the Yuan fiat money concept has survived for a thousand years (with significant changes in worldwide marketplace purchasing power).

    For most of human history, the “currency of the realm” was based on something with perceived intrinsic value – a rare commodity with finite availability. For thousands of years, gold was the currency of pharaohs and kings. Silver was the currency of the common man.

    Judas Iscariot was the keeper of Jesus disciples' common purse. Judas eventually betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver - two thousand years ago.

    Loyalty can be bought and sold with the legal tender of the day, but, Does money make one happy? When Judas realized what he had done, he hanged himself.

    I Timothy 6:10 "The love of money is the root of all evil." The accumulation and love of fiat money is beyond foolish insanity. Selfish greed creates suicidal crises.

    Christian Economics - Acts 2:44-45 "All that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need." They were in mutually-supportive "one accord." They had "favor with all the people" and their numbers and motivation increased so rapidly, that Emperor Constantine the Great made Christianity the state religion of the Roman Empire by fiat.

    Such "Communism" is totally rejected by almost all who claim to be Christians today. Soviet Union secular communism most certainly failed (without the love and compassion that was preached by Jesus).

    Most young Christians are now brought up to believe that socialists are lazy. American children are taught that socialists have no motivation to work, innovate or reach higher levels of human performance.

    Teachers preach that competitive capitalism is the solution. Fiat-money capitalism brings with it many serious selfish suicidal social evils, which are making the world tremble today.

    We are long overdue to make radical improvements to our obsolete economic and monetary systems.

    The desire to make ever-increasing amounts of money is NOT a good goal. How much money is enough to be happy with your life? Profiteers care nothing about damaging the environment or exploitation of fellow human beings.

    Matthew 19:24, Mark 10:25, Luke 18:25: "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God."

    Fiat currency facilitates the measure of self-serving capitalist "success" (until the currency collapses). In contrast, true historical Christians distributed their possessions based on need, which motivated higher levels of symbiotic synergist human performance from those who gratefully received the generosity of others. Few humans have a clue today.

    100% of all U.S. Dollars are created by for-profit bankers from nothing but thin air - based on endless debt
    There are 12 different Federal Reserve Banks around the country that are owned by large PRIVATE banks

    "None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free" - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    You must work to pay off your debt. When you go to work, you submit to an autocratic dictatorship. You are most certainly NOT "FREE."

    The following 2-part video (totaling 20 minutes) is one of the best explanations of today's
    worldwide fraudulent "fiat currency" Ponzi schemes:
    PART 1 and PART 2

    The following discussion assumes that you have viewed the above two-part critical video.

    Faith Based Fiat Currency - Intrinsic Real Value = Zero

    The Federal Reserve Bank "Modern Money Mechanics" booklet describes "the basic process of money creation in a 'fractional reserve' banking system."

    Fractional reserve banking is immoral and unconstitutional. It is like overbooking airplane seats, assuming that some passengers will not show up. The red, white, and blue American 10% fractional reserve banking system is like selling 9 times more airplane tickets than you have seats - Way beyond insane foolish greed - Guaranteed to cause currency collapse.

    100% of all U.S. Dollars are created by unregulated private bankers who refuse to be audited even by demand of the U.S. Congress.

    The privately-owned "Federal Reserve Bank" (which unconstitutionally prints worthless money out of thin air) is no more a Federal Agency, than is Federal Express. Imagine if Federal Express refused to submit to an IRS tax audit, because their name contains the word "Federal." Would that stand for long? Their executives would be prosecuted and sent to jail, as should the "Fed" head.

    The "Fed" is a privately-owned for-profit wealthy-banker entity, which by its own definition essentially enslaves everyone who accepts U.S. dollars in debt-based payment for services, goods and property that have real intrinsic value.

    "In the United States neither paper currency nor deposits have value as commodities. Intrinsically, a dollar bill is just a piece of paper, deposits merely book entries." (Virtual bits in computer files) "Mainly, it is the confidence (blind faith) people have that they will be able to exchange such money for other financial assets and for real goods and services whenever they choose to do so."

    In 2006, the "Fed" stopped publishing the (M3) money supply ludicrous amount of worthless dollars that they had created out of thin air.

    M3 is currently estimated to be about $14 TRILLION.

    Being a Fed banker is a very-profitable thing. The Fed charges interest on every worthless dollar they create out of thin air, AND they set the mandatory interest rate without government regulation or third-party audits. Who ultimately pays for the money supply interest charges? YOU and YOUR CHILDREN!

    Suppose that an unconstitutional, unmonitored, private agency tried to charge you interest on the air you breathe. Would you quietly pay it forever, just because that is what your enslaved parents always did?

    Do you care? Will you do anything to change our nation's irrational failing Ponzi-scheme monetary system? Will you just wait until it is too late to prevent the predictable catastrophic currency collapse, and total loss of all your dollar net worth? Is accumulating soon-to-be-worthless dollars a good goal for the life of your children?

    We know for certain that Chief Fed private banker Ben Shalom Bernanke has repeatedly refused to allow Congress to audit their criminal behavior. He is also an astronomical BIG LIAR who testifies before the Senate that inflation is only 2.1%, while the price of gasoline and food has soared 80%, and the value of most American's income (in net buying power) has fallen precipitously. The Fed can say and do whatever they want - They prove that they are way above the law and even Congressional oversight. These bankers "own" the U.S. government. It does not matter what laws legislators write, when un-elected private bankers have a bold stranglehold on the nation's money supply, they can (and do) freely violate almost any law. This was the reason for the American revolution.

    "an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of money manipulators was probably the prime cause of the revolution" - Benjamin Franklin (the ironic face on the U.S. $100 bill) Does America have an honest money system today? Are we long overdue for a fiat currency revolution? How traumatic will the inevitable dollar collapse be?

    Intrinsically-worthless "fiat currency" has become the world's largest, unquestioned, FAITH-BASED RELIGION. When faith in the coin of the realm predictable falters due to out-of-control irresponsible debt, the nation that the currency is based upon will surely collapse catastrophically, as ALL impossible manipulative Ponzi schemes eventually must do.

    The very nature of all worthless fiat-currency Ponzi schemes guarantees ongoing loan defaults and ultimate eventual complete economic bankruptcy. The new-millennium trend toward total collapse (since Bush / Cheney took office) is proof positive of where USA is now headed - very soon.

    We have been warned hundreds of times, and seen countless historical fiat currency collapse examples,
    BUT, we still continue to ignore even the guidance of our insightful founding fathers who tried to save us:

    "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation (plus interest), then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around (the banks) will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." - President Thomas Jefferson

    Have you noticed an increase in bank foreclosures and homelessness recently? Banks loan worthless Ponzi-scheme dollars, but then they illegally steal real property through immoral foreclosure.

    "The bold effort the present (central) bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it." - President Andrew Jackson

    "The real truth of the matter is that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson" - President Franklin D. Roosevelt 1933

    The inescapable fact is that America's Federal Reserve Bank fiat currency financial system now appears to be badly broken beyond repair. We can only hope to rebuild a superior monetary system solution, out of the ashes of long-foretold future anarchy.

    Are you prepared for the tremendous traumatic transition?

     

    Before the Federal Reserve was created in 1914,
    the purchasing power of the U.S. Dollar INCREASED

    Since WW I and the creation of the Federal Reserve Banks in 1914,
    the U.S. Dollar has become almost worthless

    U.S. Dollar Fiat Currency Purchasing Power Decline since the creation of the Federal Reserve banks

    Ending the Gold Standard gave way to destruction of the U.S. Dollar fiat currency

    The 1982 change in Consumer Price Index calculation tried to hide the Truth

    For 110 years, USA was the world's largest innovator and manufacturer

    We exported our valuable advanced-technology goods around the world
    This profitable economic engine has catastrophically ceased to function

    Now, USA merely exports almost-worthless dollars, which will soon
    no longer be accepted as payment for the endless things that we import

    The remaining USA wealth was transferred to greedy Wall Street Parasites

    (1) Privately owned and operated for-profit Federal Reserve Bank's declining
    fiat dollars, (2) USA deficit spending, and (3) corrupt politics are largely to blame

    Print one of these Trillion dollar bills - Take it to Walmart and learn the true value of fiat-currency U.S. Dollars

    Ben's Bernanke Bucks are made of thin air - They have NO intrinsic value at all

    Ben Bernanke Federal Reserve Bank Worthless Trillion Dollar Bill

    America's outta money - Ain't got NO credit score
    Don't worry 'bout dat, Ben'll create a Trillion more

    How much interest will your children pay this LIAR
    to borrow 16 Trillion worthless dollars from him?

    In 2008, Ben secretly sent $5 Trillion to bail out European Banks
    (over three times USA's annual budget deficit)
    European bailouts are adding debt to our U.S. grandchildren and destroying the value of the dollar

     

    So many people have become so aware of Bernanke's ongoing crimes against USA
    that he cannot go out in public without an armed security guard with a pigtail earpiece,
    who even escorts Ben inside our secure Capital Building -
    Ben's insecurity spectacle reminds me of gangster Al Capone's entourage

     

    In the history of America, there have only been three people who
    understood the politics of our experimental form of government:
    Mark Twain, Will Rogers, and Forest Gump's mother (as if)

    Will Rogers most-certainly understood the Fed better than does Ben Bernanke.
    Will Rogers 1930:
    "The whole financial structure of Wall Street seems to have fallen
    on the mere fact that the Federal Reserve Bank raised the amount of interest
    from 5 to 6 percent. Any business that can't survive a 1 percent raise must
    be skating on mighty thin ice . . . But let Wall Street have a nightmare and
    the whole country has to help get them back in bed again."

    "There is two things that can disrupt business in this country.
    One is war and the other is a meeting of the Federal Reserve."

    Radical Revolution From The 99% Oppressed Draws Nearer Every Day

     

    Worldwide Currency Purchasing Power Decline

    Since WW II, the U.S. emerged as most of the world's fiat-money "reserve currency."

    When the USD declines, it brings the whole world monetary systems down with it,
    as an observant person can plainly see graphically:

    Currency Purchasing Power Decline U.S., Canada, Euro, Pound since 2000

     

    Countries (like our major creditor China) are trying to divest themselves
    of declining U.S. Dollars, and then end it's use as their reserve currency

    China is now the world's largest innovator and manufacturer,
    and THEY can set any reserve currency standard they want

    China does NOT want to destroy the USD while they hold over a Trillion

    China's Xinhua news agency accused U.S. politicians of playing a "dangerously irresponsible . . . game of chicken" over the debt ceiling. They wrote that the rest of the world had been "kidnapped" by American politics. Beijing is deeply concerned over unstable U.S. dollar debt default. Xinhua said many countries will be in the "impact zone" when the U.S. defaults. "With leadership comes responsibility. It is unfortunate and disappointing that when political leaders in Washington spar over who is doing good for their country, they take little account of the world's economic soundness . . . Given the United States' status as the world's largest economy and the issuer of the dominant international reserve currency, such political brinkmanship in Washington is dangerously irresponsible. , , , It risks, among other consequences, strangling the still-fragile economic recovery of not only the United States but also the world as a whole."

    The Chinese People's Daily warned of the consequences of a U.S. debt default - It would badly hurt the U.S. dollar and trigger a "torrential flood of liquidity" (worthless fiat currency) into the global economy, fuelling inflation in delicate emerging all economies. China does NOT want America to be such a terrible threat to the world, and therefore China is anxious to reduce dependency on, and support of, the U.S. dollar. China is the largest American creditor, but that is about to change dramatically in the near future. American politics push the rapidly-declining dollar way past the international collapse tipping point.

    After Standard and Poors downgraded America's credit rating (for very good reasons), Xinhua wrote: "China has every right now to DEMAND the United States address its structural debt problems and ensure the safety of China's dollar assets. International supervision over the issue of U.S. dollars should be introduced and a new, stable and secured global reserve currency may also be an option to avert a catastrophe caused by any single country."

    To accomplish the goal of replacing the USD with a different reserve currency,
    China is wisely using their declining U.S. Dollars to buy hard assets with
    real intrinsic future value (just like India wisely did with gold in 2008)

    (My wife and I are spending our declining dollars on real assets with sustainable-community intrinsic value)

    China is investing heavily in infrastructure, while USA CUTS FUNDING
    China is now doing what America used to do to create prosperity long ago
    China is wisely investing heavily in their own long-term future success

    Has your corporation or government been as growth-oriented as China ?

     

    Accelerating Decline of the U.S. Dollar versus the Chinese Yuan

     

    The U.S. Dollar has been driven off a cliff by very-bad policies
    The American economy is in complete free fall, and poised for
    total destruction when it hits rock bottom (perhaps very soon)

    "So far, so good" said the fool who fell off a 1,000-foot cliff
    - while he was still 50 feet above the ground

    The U.S. Dollar is clearly a failed faith-based fiat currency
    How much is the full faith and credit in the USA worth today?

    Do you think that the suicidal policies that created the current
    dollar-based currency crisis are going to change any time soon?

     

    Obama Bernanke Dollar Decline Same as Bush Bernanke

     

    The longer anyone holds U.S. Dollars, the more net worth they lose
    Dump your declining dollars NOW - Invest in your local community coop

     

    When Bush / Cheney took control of U.S. economic policies, Chinese labor was only $.58 per hour.
    Since then, the price of Chinese labor has been increasing at about 20% per year, in U.S. dollars.

    Has YOUR hourly wage increased 20% per year since the 2001 Bush / Cheney disaster?
    For more than 99% of Americans, the answer is an emphatic NO!
    Only the U.S. greedy elite, Wall Street parasites, and vulture capitalists have prospered.

    Unpatriotic profiteering U.S. companies like Apple, General Electric, General Motors,
    Caterpillar, and many others have sent millions of American jobs, great wealth,
    and our best technology education to Asia and Europe.
    This is unsustainable. This terrible trend MUST change very soon.

     

    It is difficult to find any aspect of American life that is no longer influenced by China.
    If you drive a modern car made anywhere in the world, it likely has Chinese components.
    The petroleum that you put in your car probably flowed through
    pipelines or oil tankers made of low-quality Chinese steel.
    New and recently-repaired bridges and buildings contain Chinese steel.

    Most products in the world's largest retail stores (like WalMart) are "Made In China."
    Over a hundred million U.S. jobs involve transporting, selling, or using Chinese products.

    China's primary exports are digital electronics, computers, and communication equipment.
    Half of all Americans own at least one Apple product Made In China.
    If you watch television, view a weather satellite image, listen to the radio, talk on a telephone,
    use a computer or the Internet, then you are probably using digital chips Made In China.
    If you use any federal government service, then China loaned us part of the money.

    Never in human history has one great nation ever been so totally dependent on another.
    China now owns or controls much of America - It gets even worse every year.
    This rapid downward spiral is COMPLETELY UNSUSTAINABLE much longer.

     

    China wants to become much less dependent on exports to America
    As USA collapses, China wants to develop other sources of revenue


    With $3 Trillion from Americans, China is bailing out Europe
    China is now buying up Euro-based bonds at bargain prices
    If this reduces China's investment in U.S. bonds, it will accelerate
    the collapse of the U.S. bond market, our fiat currency, and economy

     

    When China's current goal is accomplished, the U.S. Dollar WILL collapse,
    and China will no longer want or need to loan America any more money
    What will our stupid country (that borrows over 40% of what we spend) do then ?

    China will own significant worldwide hard assets with intrinsic real value
    China will have used American technology to become the world's economic leader

     

    Many business-as-usual U.S. economists say that China will never dump the dollar
    So-called "experts" insist that China will always be forced to loan declining-USA
    trillions of dollars, to keep us afloat so we can buy more Chinese exports,
    BUT, such shortsighted fools are ignoring documented recent trends:

    Consider these basic FACTS: (1) Chinese labor is getting 20% more expensive every year (in USD),
    (2) China is developing growing global markets (other than America) to sell their products to,
    (3) The rising price of petroleum is making the cost of exporting to the U.S. prohibitively expensive,
    (4) Some U.S. companies (like GE and Caterpillar) are bringing thousands of jobs back to America,
    (5) IF we continue to export jobs to China, Americans will have no income to buy Chinese exports in WalMart,
    (6) When Chinese exports to USA decline, we will send less money to China, and they will no longer lend us money,
    (7) The U.S. economy will collapse, and we will be forced to rely on our local communities, just to survive.


    This is NOT a bad thing - I look forward to it enthusiastically!
    Turn the world right side up - Return to the Garden of Eden again
    Think globally - Act locally - STOP doing unsustainable things (OR DIE)


    Begin to prepare TODAY - Invest in the future success of your own local community

    Do NOT waste your life accumulating gold, silver, guns and ammunition - to kill your hungry neighbors.
    Invest your time and resources in community supported agriculture, so no one ever needs be hungry.
    STOP buying unhealthy food that comes from more than a bicycle ride away. Plant a victory garden.
    Plant and nurture fruit trees for your grandchildren - Leave a legacy of love and harmony with Nature.

    Want for your brother what you want for yourself, and you will have no fear of death.
    Prepare to meet the Creator of the Universe, with confidence and humility.

     

    America's entire deficit-spending declining economy is not just unsustainable,
    IT IS BY DESIGN SELF-DESTRUCTIVELY SUICIDAL

    The largest outrage is that there seems to be no widespread outrage !

    Very few people are preparing for the predictable

     

    Rapidly Collapsing U.S. Dollar - Losing Purchasing Power

     

    Constant-Dollar False Assumption by Non-Learning Dummies

    You may have more dollars today than you did a few years ago, but EACH ONE IS WORTH MUCH LESS

    It would take over 715 U.S. dollars in 2011 to be worth the purchasing power of one hundred 2001 dollars
    (relative to the purchasing power of gold and other hard-asset commodities with intrinsic real value)

    IF you could find an FDIC-insured savings account that would pay you a whopping 8% net interest after taxes,
    you would ONLY be losing about 10% of your net worth every year, as Bernanke destroys the value of all dollars

    When the dollar and the FDIC both totally collapse (soon), your dollar investment may become totally worthless

    It is spectacularly stupid to save rapidly-collapsing U.S. dollars - Invest in hard assets with intrinsic real value.
    When the dollar collapses, food will be precious - One good investment is in an efficient LOCAL organic-food coop.

    (We are NOT selling anything here but just plain talk and local community survival common sense.)

    Governments know that the dynamics of policy-based inflationary economics are too complex for the simple-minded mediocre majority to comprehend. It involves complex mathematics like "takeawayfroms" and "goesintos", which are way beyond most non-learning dummies. (snicker)

    Inflation is a convenient way to Steal Real Value from stupid people who continue to vote to re-elect the corrupt criminal treacherous tyrants currently in office. Approval of Congress is only 9%, but re-election of incumbents is about 92%. How stupid is that?

    The problem is that this form of inflationary immoral theft cannot go on for multiple centuries. Once the government has stolen and spent over 90% of a nation's net worth, the faith-based fiat currency MUST collapse catastrophically. It has ALWAYS happened throughout history. There has NEVER been one ancient or modern exception.

    America has used up all of its economic ammunition. We are nearly out of silly silver bullets and fiat-currency smart bombs.

    We are not talking about a possible future. USA has already borrowed far beyond a rational national credit limit, and created so much fiat money out of thin air, that the dollar is worth less than two cents. Our squanderlust government has paid for short-term hamburgers and pork with credit cards, and we now cannot even afford the minimum payment on them.

    The next small step is a U.S. Dollar that is worth ZERO, ZIP, NADA - Nothing at all

    What will Americans then use to pay for our enormous addiction to imported goods ?

    Your local WalMart shelves will be empty - Very few businesses will survive in their current form

    Everything you know about how to live day to day will turn upside down

    Your family's ability to continue to exist will depend on your local community

     

    Would you sell a loaf of bread for
    one thousand Zimbabwe Dollars ?

    5 Trillion Zimbabwe Dollars

    Would you loan Zimbabwe anything,
    and expect it to ever be repaid ?

    This IS the direction of the rapidly-declining U.S. Dollar
    Why are U.S. Dollar holders so oblivious to the Truth ?

    All fiat currency ALWAYS collapses from corruption
    When it happens again and again, why is anyone surprised ?

     

    Consider The 2008 - 2012 Pump Price Of Petroleum Products

    When the pump price of petroleum products hit $4 USD per gallon in the summer of 2008, USA's economy began to enter a huge recession. A thousand trucking companies, 8 airlines, General Motors, Lehman Brothers, etc. all went bankrupt. Millions of Americans lost their jobs, and their homes were foreclosed. By the end of 2011, when oil was over $100 per barrel, 15 airlines in America (including ALL major legacy carriers) had filed for bankruptcy. Simply cutting labor costs, not paying your bills, and reducing quality and safety does NOT solve the price-of-oil problem. America's oil-addicted transportation system is absolutely unsustainable. It must radically change very soon.

    $4 gas blew an unprecedented $15 Trillion hole in the net worth of the USA in the Fall of 2008. By the end of 2011, American homeowners had lost $7.2 Trillion in real estate equity, due to unemployment and foreclosures caused by unsustainable oil price.

    Is anyone paying attention to oil addiction cause and effect? When will we STOP suicidally making and buying things that depend on the world's declining supply of deadly oil?

     

    Subsidizing General Motors

    GM top management and automotive engineers are spectacularly-obsolete, poorly-educated, propagators of bankrupt business-as-usual stupidity.

    For 15 years, GM has not been able to read the Toyota Prius shop manuals, take one apart, and come up with anything anywhere close to the 50 mpg "Hybrid Synergy Drive."

    The "hope of the future" U.S. taxpayer-subsidized GM Chevy Volt is an unsafe, deadly, inefficient, unaffordable, laughable joke.

    In contrast, the 1997 all-electric GM Saturn EV1 went over 100 miles per charge (mpc). Multiple international vendors now offer cost-effective 100 mpc electric cars. The Chevy Volt only gets 35 mpc, or less (at night, with the A/C running, or on steep terrain). The Volt takes 4 hours to recharge so it will go only 35 miles - NOT a practical all-electric vehicle.

    When the Chevy Volt operates in gasoline mode, it gets less than 74% of the mpg of a same-size more-comfortable Toyota Prius (35 mpg city / 37 overall). Unlike the efficient Prius, the Volt REQUIRES MORE-EXPENSIVE PREMIUM UNLEADED FUEL. If you consider the higher-per-gallon premium-fuel cost, the net effective mpg of the Volt is even less.

    The far-superior proven Prius only costs 2/3 the price of a Chevy Volt, WITHOUT ANY TAXPAYER SUBSIDY FOR THE PRIUS.

    The lithium-ion batteries in the Chevy Volt have a well-known deadly safety hazard. If they are charged or discharged too rapidly, or unevenly, they explode and burn violently. This can happen when the electronics fail, or after a crash. Other electric vehicle manufacturers understood this life-critical problem and designed safe solutions for it long ago.

    Obsolete GM tried to "reinvent the electric wheel" with the Volt, and GM FAILED TO DELIVER A SAFE ELECTRIC VEHICLE. Government testing of the GM Volt discovered multiple fires from the poorly-engineered battery system and electronics. GM OFFERED TO BUY BACK ALL POTENTIALLY-DEADLY CHEVY VOLTS.

    Was your taxpayer subsidy money well spent? Is Chevy Volt inferior billion-dollar American engineering the future of our declining manufacturing base?

    What else is GM doing with taxpayer bailout money? GM used U.S. subsidies to expand their manufacturing plants in China - sending more jobs overseas. GM used U.S. subsidies to develop unsafe 190-mph gas-guzzling 500+ horsepower Cadillac, Corvette, and Camero muscle cars.

    Current U.S. C.A.F.E. standards require all cars to achieve a minimum of 39 mpg by 2016. Obama set in motion progress toward a minimum of 54.5 mpg cars in the future. Europe already has off-the-shelf 4-passenger cars with 75-to-100 mpg.

    NOT ONE PENNY OF TAXPAYER FUNDING SHOULD PAY FOR ANY CAR THAT GETS LESS THAN 54.5 mpg (especially those made overseas)!

    Do YOU think that your taxpayer dollars should be used to fund the development of the hazardous, inferior, poor-performance, GM Chevy Volt, or 500+ hp deadly 190 mph expensive gas guzzlers?

     

    American Bankers

    In a speech to the American Bankers Association convention in New York City in 1923, Will Rogers said: "You have a wonderful organization. I understand you have ten thousand here. And if you count the ones in the various federal prisons, it brings your total membership up to around thirty thousand."

    Will Rogers 1924: "Bankers are likeable rascals. Now that we are all wise to 'em, it's been shown that they don't know any more about finances than the rest of us know about our businesses, which has proved to be nothing." . . . 1927: "If a bank fails in China, they behead the men at the top of it that was responsible . . . If we beheaded all of ours that were responsible for bank failures, we wouldn't have enough people left to bury the heads." . . . 1934: "The bankers just got a good cussing by everybody for loaning too much money. Well, they got some awful nice buildings. So when a banker fails, he fails in splendor."

    Tall Building Suicide Jumper

    American banking has essentially not changed much in a century. Similar things happened in 2008, but this time we did not send the criminal bankers to prison - They are too big to fail, and clearly above the law. The same largely-unregulated U.S. banking system still exists today (as it did during the Great Depression) - but our fiat currency cannot survive much longer.

    When we add the pressure of Past Peak Unsustainable Oil Addiction, collapse is now imminent.

     

    When gasoline returned to $4 per gallon in the Spring of 2011, the damage to our our economy was not as bad as 2008. Why Not?

     

    In the Summer of 2008, the price of one ounce of gold was about $880 USD
    In the late Spring of 2011 gold was $1540 USD per ounce (before the Bush / Cheney crash)

    The intrinsic real value of gold is essentially constant

    The gold purchasing power of the Spring 2011 U.S. Dollar
    dropped to only 57% of what it was in the Summer of 2008

    Mediocre minds can NOT keep up with fiat dollar dynamics:

    A 2011 dollar bill looks like a 2008 dollar;
    it may even be the same piece of paper, BUT,
    the value of a dollar in 2008 was much more
    than a worth-less 2011 U.S. dollar

     

    In the Summer of 2008, an ounce of gold was worth 220 gallons of gas

    In the Spring of 2011, an ounce of gold was worth 385 gallons of gas
    (even though the price of gas was $4 USD / gallon in 2008 and 2011)

    USD purchasing power (to buy gold) fell 43% from Summer 2008 to Spring 2011

    When we adjust 2011 $4 / gallon gasoline for USD inflation, 2011 gas was only
    $2.28 per gallon - measured in summer 2008 USD (relative to the price of gold)

     

    You had the legal right to buy gold in 2008, as India did for $880 / oz
    If you did not buy gold, you probably lost 43% of your USD net worth
    (This strategy may not work in the future - The value of gold may collapse when the world is starving)

     

    Ben Bernanke testified that the reason the U.S. recovery is so slow is because
    of the high price of oil. THIS IS A GIGANTIC LIE to cover up the Truth !
    "Sustained rises in the prices of oil or other commodities would represent
    a threat both to economic growth and to overall price stability"

    That was just as true in 1973 as it is today - USA continues to ignore history

    The $4 / gallon USA pump price of gasoline must soon go much higher, due to:
    (1) increased worldwide demand, (2) declining supply, and (3) fiat money inflation

    It is curious that the Fed dropped fuel and food price from CPI calculations
    The CRB Index is now a much more accurate indicator of inflation than the CPI:

    CRB Index Documents Rapid Decline In The Value Of The U.S. Dollar

    The USD price of gold and the CRB tell the truth - Bernanke Clearly LIES!

    The simple Truth is that Bernanke's Federal Reserve "Quantitative Easing"
    has STOLLEN TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS of net worth from Americans,
    and squandered it on ineffective pork-barrel political projects for the corrupt
    U.S. Congress, leaving our grandchildren deep in $14T of unpayable debt

    2011 $4 / gallon gasoline is a Big BARGAIN (relative to the 2008 $4 price)

     

    "We are on the verge of financial collapse"
    "The bond market could collapse any day now"
    - Popular Governor Gary Johnson (successful entrepreneur)

    CRB Commodity Prices versus U.S. Dollar Bonds

    The time to own bonds is when: (a) Interest rates are high, (b) Interest rates are beginning to fall,
    and (c) The inflation rate is less than the net yield on bonds after taxes - This is a rare situation
    Do NOT make the incorrect assumption that the value of the underlying currency is constant

    The time to dump bonds is when: (a) Interest rates are low, (b) Interest rates cannot fall lower,
    and / or when (c) the value of the underlying bond currency is falling (rapidly)

    America cannot afford to pay the low interest rate on our #14+ Trillion of growing unpayable debt,
    much less the principle on the money we owe - SO we must borrow money to make the
    minimum payment on our gigantic unprecedented credit cards

    What would happen if your family did that? How long before you went bankrupt?

    America finances its debt by selling low-interest-rate bonds that rapidly go down in purchasing power
    In the past, the majority of our bonds were sold overseas - Now only about one half that amount are

    Japan has no more money to buy our declining bonds, which are a rotten investment
    China and OPEC (particularly Saudi Arabia) are now taking the hundreds of billions of dollars
    that USA pays them for their exports to us, and they are buying Euro bonds,
    which pay them one-and-a-half percent more than U.S. Bonds

    America cannot afford to pay today's low Federal Reserve Bank interest rates,
    much less the rate that China and OPEC are receiving from European Bonds

    Who will loan USA money so we can keep borrowing over 40% of every dollar we spend?

    NO ONE! The U.S. Bond Market is on the verge of total collapse - any day now
    No one can predict the exact day or trigger event with certainty,
    but the downward dollar trend is irrefutable, with no change in sight

    We are much worse off now than we were just before The Great Depression

    Wall Street and International Investors are racing along merrily toward a well-marked cliff

    Many will die after the imminent cataclysmic currency crash -
    Formerly-wealthy greedy special interest groups will claim that their status quo will save us

    Those that survive and thrive in the future will have to live within their means,
    in harmony with the Laws of Nature, and with each other
    - Nothing like today

    Emerald Eco-City Is the shovel-ready plan to make that happen quickly

    Humanity CAN overcome all of the problems that humans created,
    AFTER we hit rock bottom and have no other available options

    "Americans can always be counted on to do the right thing
    - after they have exhausted all other possibilities."
    - Sir Winston Churchill

     

    People who refuse to study history condemn themselves to forever repeat its worst mistakes
    America is now very close to a terrible collapse - much worse than The Great Depression

    America has world's highest standard of living, but millions are homeless and hungry

     

    Millions homeless and hungry, despite fabulous new technology and very-high productivity

    Homeless family of four

     

    There is one crucial reason for unemployment and poverty in America today:
    Our millionaires want to accumulate more wealth - They have NO compassion for others
    They could easily create millions of local new jobs and incentives for willing workers
    Their selfish profit motive causes them to send American jobs overseas
    Wealthy oppressors refuse to live in harmony with Nature, or with each other

    Their Selfish Greedy Prosperity Theology Is Extremely Anti-Christian

    Our families need living-wage jobs, NOT handouts that demotivate people
    Our mismanaged welfare state perpetuates poverty and oppresses the poor

    The unemployed could quickly form coops and grow their own food,
    but their grandparents forgot how to survive in harmony with Nature

    Our government subsidizes unsustainability and does NOT invest in our future

     

    In July 2011, Republican energy policy called for a REDUCTION in support
    for sustainable free-fuel energy like solar, wind, hydroelectric and geothermal
    They wanted to INCREASE U.S. billions of dollars of subsidies and tax breaks
    for unsustainable, dirty, deadly: oil, coal, and nuclear energy

    China is now the world's largest consumer of energy - Chinese utility companies are
    required to install wind turbines and Beijing is paying part of the cost of solar equipment

    China led the world in clean energy investment in 2010 at $54.4 billion, up 39% from 2009

    In July 2011, the profits of some Chinese green energy companies doubled from July 2010
    China aggressively invests in the future - Corrupt Republicans are destroying America's future

    Most Americans learn nothing from the well-documented, frequently-repeated errors of the past

     

    The Old Testament Book of Amos is the third of the twelve prophets. It does not matter what religion you are or are not - Amos describes the historical terrible way that wealthy aristocrats have always oppressed the poor and enslaved submissive workers for greedy profit. Amos accurately describes selfish human nature. Evangelists that preach ungodly Prosperity Theology never quote Amos. Consider these words from Amos chapter five: "These are the words of the Lord . . . You turn justice to poison and thrust righteousness to the ground, . . . you hate a man who brings the wrongdoer to court and you abominate him who speaks nothing less than the TRUTH . . . you levy taxes on the poor and extort a tribute of grain from them . . . You distress the righteous and accept bribes - And turn aside the poor from your gate."

    The nature of those who love extortion and the accumulation of excessive oppressive wealth remains exactly the
    same thousands of years later. We continue to be an evil unjust unsustainable society of non-learning fools

    We must radically reinvent the very foundation of our demotivational economy that rewards oppressors
    Anything less is self-inflicted selfish suicide for our entire society

     

    The Great Depression, the 2008 Recession, and Amos SHOULD have taught us One Important Lesson:
    Our corrupt gridlocked government, greedy bankers, and self-serving corporations haven't a clue what to do for you !

    Most Americans that are polled give our leaders a vote of "No Confidence", but then re-elect them

    God is just - The net worth of those who have accumulated millions of dollars may soon be zero
    What will YOUR net worth be when our dollar-based economy predictably collapses ?

    Do you care about the well-documented unsustainable future trends for your posterity ?
    Will your grandchildren remember you with admiration, or curse the legacy you left them ?

     

    My first introduction to "fiat currency" inflation happen when I was in the first grade. My parents gave me just enough money to buy my favorite lunch in the school cafeteria. One day I handed my coins to the cashier and I learned that the price of my favorite chips had increased overnight from five cents to ten cents per bag. I did not have another nickel. She made me put my chips back. I was embarrassed in front of my classmates. I felt hungry and deprived all afternoon. I cried when I came home and told my loving sympathetic mother what had happened. The size and contents of the bag of chips was exactly the same. The economy had done me wrong. The sky was falling in on my little head. It seemed like there was no financial stability or security in the foreseeable future. In this silly case, there was a one-day reduction of the value of my coins by one half. It was one young child's early lesson about economic reality that I will always vividly remember (because of the emotions that it provoked):

    THE PURCHASING POWER OF THE FAITH-BASED U.S. DOLLAR IS ALWAYS DECLINING - As a child, I learned that this is just the way things are. It was not my fault. I had no control over inflation. From that point on, I always kept an extra dime hidden in my pocket, and skepticism about the political leaders of our unfair nation.

    Have you assimilated this important lesson yet? There is much to learn from the past about our probable future.

    Some grade school students understand parts of history better than many adults. "Are you smarter than a fifth grader?"

    Do you believe that Paul Revere made his midnight ride to "warn the British"? (as some low-IQ inDUHviduals now believe - chuckle)

    It is not so much that popular would-be "leaders" are just plain STUPID
    (History is full of arrogant inane leaders) "The way of a fool is right in his own eyes"

    "The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool" - William Shakespeare

    "In seeking wisdom thou art wise; in imagining that thou hast attained it - thou art a fool" - Lord Chesterfield

    The outrage is that complete fools have so many non-learning, ethnocentric, self-righteous, faithful followers

    "Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into the ditch?"

     

    We must NOT hate people for being stupid - We are ALL stupid, just in different ways -
    When we learn something new, we think that people who think what we thought yesterday are stupid -
    If YOU think you are right and everyone else is wrong, open your mind to the possibility you are wrong

    The majority are often wrong, but SOMETIMES the majority do understand a few things better than you do
    If you disagree with the majority of the people around you, make sure that you have SCIENTIC PROOF
    If all you have is blind dumb faith in the impossible, others MUST be skeptical of your bigoted opinion

    Do NOT be mislead by people who want to sell you something that can only be believed by faith in miracles,
    lest you be fooled by many mutually-exclusive faith-based self-contradictory egotistical bigoted things

    If it seems too good to be true, then REJECT IT, or demand rock-solid proof beyond reasonable doubt

    Do not even believe anything that I write, until you validate it with other trustworthy sources

    If you disagree with any of this, we would appreciate constructive criticism from you: ZEDmaster


    Hate mongers are among the dumbest and most-sinister humans of all
    Those who preach a dogmatic doctrine of destructive hatred are by definition WRONG
    They love endless war much more than Peace On Earth, Good Will Toward Men

    IF the stupidity of others is interfering with our own pursuit of happiness,
    then we can have pity on them, try to get them to laugh at their own foolishness,
    and offer free advice and wisdom that helps us avoid similar mistakes

    If however, stupid people chose to continue being virulently-ignorant
    militant hate mongers, then we may have to merely allow them to fail,
    or incarcerate them if they become dangerous criminals

    We must not enable stupidity that badly damages society

     

     

    The recent history of Gold, Oil, and the U.S. Dollar - Have we learned anything at all?

    Just before America reached Peak Oil Production and President Richard Nixon ended the gold standard in 1971, the legal value of gold was $35 per ounce. An ounce of gold was worth 175 gallons of gasoline at the pump. By the beginning of 1973, the value of the U.S. Dollar had fallen 47% to the point that the market price of gold was $65 / ounce. (I recognized that it was just like my bag of chips in grade school.)

    The U.S. mid-west pump price of gasoline was still $0.20 per gallon in 1973. An ounce of gold was worth 325 gallons of gas. Do these numbers sound at all familiar, as the value of the U.S. Dollar fell precipitously, due to government-planned fiat currency Federal Reserve Bank rapid price inflation? I did not like it, but I did recognize what was happening to the economy.

    Just after the first 1973 OPEC oil embargo, gas rationing, and long gas-station waiting lines, the price of gold was $112 / oz by the end of 1973. Gasoline rose 280% to about $0.56 / gallon. An ounce of gold was worth 200 gallons of gas. After the second major OPEC oil embargo in 1979, mid-west gasoline was $1.20 - an increase of 600% in only six years.

    Gold rose to $512 by the end of 1979. An ounce of gold was worth 427 gallons of gasoline. The $1.20 pump price of gasoline was a SUPER BARGAIN, relative to the constant value of gold, but it was devastating to the U.S. economy, relative to the rapid devaluation of worth-less faith-based fiat dollars.

    Can you begin to see the altogether-obvious corrupt-government long-term USD trend yet?

    Can you hear how 2008 harmonized with the 1970's.

    Does history help intelligent people understand how to plan for the future?

    In the 1970's, my conservative parents had savings invested at 5% interest in "safe" FDIC-insured banks. The greedy U.S. government STOLE significant net worth from them with Federal Reserve Bank double-digit inflation. The dollar-value of their lifetime savings accounts went up. They paid income tax on the interest, BUT their net purchasing power fell by one half.

    My mother and research-scientist father were well-educated intelligent people, but they failed to adapt fast enough to radical economic change. It was an unprecedented event for them. This had a profound impact on the rest of my creative life. It reinforced the fiat-currency (bag of chips) lesson that I had learned decades earlier in grade school.

     

    The Perceived Market Value Of Gold

    At $1900 per ounce, there was a $300 speculative premium in gold Q2 2011. Q2 2011, the demand for gold increased 26% year-over-year. But, even at $1600 per ounce in Q3 2011, the market perception of gold was still somewhat irrational.

    Gold has multiple uses, including (1) a hedge against inflation (devaluation of worthless fiat currency), (2) jewelry (narcissistic conspicuous consumption - "I'm worth more than you are" arrogance), and (3) industrial.

    Gold is non-corrosive and an excellent conductor of electricity. A billion electronic devices have gold-plated electrical contacts, etc. When these rapidly-evolving devices are discarded, the small quantity of gold in each device is usually not recovered. This is unsustainable irrational behavior.

    Gold is a finite resource. Mining new gold is increasingly expensive. The cost of gold for industrial applications is like petroleum - It can only increase over the long term - until it eventually runs out.

    There are roughly 31,000 tonnes of worldwide gold holdings today. The World Gold Council suggests that 52% is jewelry, 18% is held by central banks (like Fort Knox), 16% private investors, 12% industrial, and the rest unaccounted. The worldwide worthless fiat currency money supply far exceed the sum total of all gold in the entire world.

    Gold has been used as a representation of royal wealth for 5,000 years.

     

    Platinum is much-more precious than gold - The market is crazy

    Modern knowledge of platinum is only a few hundred years old. Its chemical / industrial properties are superior to, and more valuable than, gold.

    Like gold, platinum is non-corrosive, highly electrically conductive, soft and malleable. But, platinum is also a powerful catalyzing agent.

    Platinum has been essential in industrial processes, and in the hydrogen fuels cells that provided electricity for 1960's man on the moon, and the space shuttle program.

    IF platinum was abundant and cheap, Americans would have been driving electric cars with hydrogen fuel cells since the 1970's. BUT, platinum is extremely rare compared to gold. The sum total of all known mined platinum available on Earth today would probably fit into a single living room, or one truck.

    Historically, the market value of platinum has been much greater than gold, for good industrial, chemical, and scientific reasons.

    When the worldwide speculative value of gold surpassed platinum - THE PRECIOUS METAL MARKET WAS EXTREMELY IRRATIONAL.

     

    What would an intelligent person do in a terrible energy-based dollar-devaluation scenario ?

    At the university (and as a research-lab intern during the summers), I studied to become an energy research scientist like my father, PLUS I added major degrees in business management and the emerging new field of Computing Science / Artificial Intelligence. This good fortune gave me me a truly-unique unprecedented new point of view.

    When the price of gas increased by more-than 250% in a couple of months in 1973, I realized that M. K. Hubbert's 1956 Peak Oil predication was coming true in a dramatic way, and I had to react much faster than my parents did. I was already a successful energy research scientist, but I went out and obtained a real estate license, as a "hobby."

    Why was I interested in a real estate license, when it was gasoline that was getting more expensive? I KNEW THAT THE PRICE OF ENERGY IMPACTS EVERYTHING. In the 1970's (but not today) real estate gave me the chance to "leverage" a small investment in assets that were rapidly appreciating. All of the pieces of a complex economic puzzle began to fall together in my futuristic imagination.

     

    THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY YO TURN A BAD SITUATION INTO A GOOD ONE !

    EVERY CRISIS CREATES OPPORTUNITIES - FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE PREPARED

     

    In the 1970's, I bought 9 houses (by assuming existing loans), and rented the homes to my friends and young work associates. I watched my real estate investments greatly increase in dollar-value by heavily-leveraged double digits every year. Inflation more-than-doubled my income. I was not taking advantage of anyone. My renters (many recent college graduates) appreciated the service and good value that I gave them. My research-scientist salary was increasing over 20% per year, but my net worth increased more from double-digit leveraged investments than from my job. I quickly and quietly became a young self-made millionaire. My income tax rate went down, due to "depreciation" and capital gains treatment.

    I analyzed the trends with computers. In college I told my parents that I was going to retire by age 40. I could see that real estate (in the 1970's) was a great short-term investment. I also knew that energy prices were the source of rampant inflation. Vacation travel was going to become more expensive, SO, I decided to build my first Zero Energy Design home - like a vacation resort - and take advantage of President Carter's new solar energy tax credits: win, Win WIN !

    That strategy will not work today. Real estate is going down in value. History does not repeat itself, but it rhymes.

    In every season, there is an optimal strategy for success (by whatever measure you use for "success"). Intelligent people are sometimes the first ones to adapt when the situation changes radically (as is about to do with the total collapse of the faith-based U.S. fiat dollar). I no longer measure success in U.S. Dollars - Far from it, I am specifically divesting myself of declining-dollar-based assets.

    I now care far more about living in harmony with Nature, and leaving a lasting legacy of accumulated wisdom for posterity. I have invested many years and resources so that you may read this material totally for free. I wrote it for my children, but then I published it for the whole needy world to see. This website has no way to generate any revenue. Pay attention or ignore it as you chose.

    I was given many great gifts, education and experience for some important reason. "Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have give I thee."

    I have nothing to fear from death. I will meet my maker with great joy in my soul. I look forward to hearing: "Well done, my good and faithful servant." It motivates me to the highest level of loves-labor performance in my entire life. Just imagine how much love went into creating this website. I hope you can benefit from my life's work. "Love thy neighbor as thyself." "Want for your brother what you want for yourself" as I want for YOU.

    Fiat money is counterproductive to my personal lifetime goals. "The love of money is the root of all evil." "Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth." I have never owned a Rolex. Even as an accidental millionaire, I shopped at Walmart - preparing for the future. I no longer even own a $1 wrist watch, or wear any jewelry at all. I've forgotten how to tie the neck ties that I once wore at IBM. There is no more scratchy starch in any of my clothes.

    My inspiration is never ending. I never have writer's block. I sit at the keyboard, and the words flow from my fingers like many bolts of lighting from above. I believe that it is much more than just the product of an isolated human brain.

    I should have died in 2007, but for some reason, I have been kept alive and well until the purpose for my earthly life has been completely fulfilled.

    I now turn toward the great emerald-green beauty of Nature - away from conspicuous consumption. Worldly possessions are no longer a measure of my personal net worth. I am comfortable and satisfied with what I need to survive and contribute my nerdy knowledge to the needy world.

    "The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth. The trite subjects of human efforts, possessions, outward success, and luxury have always seemed to me contemptible." - Albert Einstein

    I think that Universal Consciousness and the Love of Nature are Godly Goals, and Measures of Maturity. You are welcome to your own opinion.

    There is some reason that you are reading these words right now. I hope that this helps you develop and accomplish your own good goals, even though I may never know your name.

    You may even read these words after I am long gone. Remember that I was thinking of you as I wrote them. I hope that one day I will see you smile from wherever my spirit is.

    I hope your life is worthy of praise from your grandchildren.

     

    WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN YOUR FIAT MONEY COLAPSES IN THE NEAR FUTURE?

    Are you preparing TODAY for the predicable? Will you be able to feed your family tomorrow?

    How bad will things have to get before you learn what "unsustainable" really means?

    Is everything you need within walking distance of your current home?

    Will there be food on supermarket shelves? What will you use for money?

    Do you have seeds and skills to grow your own food in a year-round greenhouse?

    "God helps those who help themselves" is a platitude that is NOT found in the Bible.
    Throughout history, human needs have been met through value provided to the community.

    Will YOU add significant value or excessive burden to your future community?

    Will your fossil-fuel-dependent home freeze in the winter?

    Will your petroleum-powered vehicles have any value at all?

    Most people say: "If things get that bad, we'll all be in trouble"
    - Yup - Will you be a dummy and march off the cliff along with fellow fools?

     

    America wastes over $600 Billion dollars per year importing foreign oil
    (for inefficient vehicles, heating obsolete homes in the winter, and harmful petrochemicals)
    A major portion of the USA military budget goes to secure access to imported oil, plus oil
    companies receive billions in subsides and tax breaks, which
    doubles the true price of oil

    OPEC countries like Saudi Arabia are converting their USD into hard assets
    They are building up their national infrastructure, and buying
    U.S. real estate at greatly-reduced current recession prices

    Dubai built the world's tallest building, and an indoor ski slope in the desert
    using U.S. dollars that foolhardy Americans continue to send to them every day

    Foreign oil is the largest insane transfer of wealth in human history

    American addiction to imported oil is absolutely self-destructive suicidal !

    USA REFUSES to live within its resource-and-economic sustainable means
    Osama bin Laden said that he attacked USA because we stole Arabian oil for a paultry sum

    Since 1973, we have clear proof that the price of energy has a dramatic impact
    on inflation, and our entire non-learning imported-oil-addicted U.S. economy
    We send our brave patriotic children to die in O.I.L.-related wars

     

    * * * * * * * * * *

    Overseas outsourcing is helping tens of millions of people in China and India
    climb out of poverty every year - They are now buying millions of new cars
    This increases the worldwide competition for the dwindling supply of oil

    Countries receiving USD are wisely buying hard assets with real intrinsic value

    In 2008, India was the world's largest importer of huge amounts of gold
    They are being paid in USD dollars, which they believe will soon collapse

    India exchanged USD for gold at $800-to-$1,000 USD per ounce in 2008
    In hindsight, India's foresight was exactly the right thing for them to do
    Outsourcing and inflation increased their net worth (measured in USD)

    Was your investment advisor as smart as the government in India in 2008? R U ?

    In the USA, Supermarket food has the same intrinsic value in 2011 as
    it did in 2008 - It just takes almost twice as many U.S. Dollars to buy it
    - Food does NOT cost more - The dollar is worth much less

    DON'T BE A DUMMY - STOP THINKING THAT THE USD IS CONSTANT

    Do NOT work hard to accumulate and hold declining-dollar fiat money
    Exchange dollars quickly for appreciating things that have lasting real value

    Infrastructure that helps meet local community needs is a wise investment
    Learn how to cost-effectively grow your own sustainable food year round
    As the price of oil increases, local food production will become more important

    If you lose your job, think that you might, or you can't make ends meet,
    immediately plant a garden and grow at least part of your own food -
    Your family will have better-quality fresh food, and spend much less

    Even renters can raise some food year round in pots next to southern windows

    Join or start a local greenhouse food cooperative that you can walk or bicycle to

    Search for local information about "Community Supported Agriculture" (CSA)

    Spend your time learning how to survive, and helping others who will help you

     

    Unsustainable Exponential Compound Growth and Decline Food Trends

    (1) As worldwide population continues to explode exponentially (from 2.5 billion in 1950 to 7 billion in 2011), billions more people will soon want cars. Demand for oil (and oil prices) will skyrocket, while Past Peak worldwide oil supplies will sharply decline. We will very soon have no choice but to eliminate oil from our food chain. The sooner we get started, the less traumatic the total transformation will be for our children.

    (2) Freshwater supply aquifers are drying up - due to water over extraction. Man-made global warming, desertification and deforestation are increasing droughts and famines. Urbanization and population growth are converting over a million acres per year into urban sprawl. Worldwide farmland has been declining rapidly since year 2000, while planet population is increasing exponentially with a compound growth rate increase in demand for food. Over a billion people are starving on less than one cup of food per day.

    (3) USA food imports have increased 400% in only one decade. Starving countries like Haiti are sending food to gluttonous morbidly-obese Americans. FDA food inspectors are monitoring FEWER shipments of imported food - resulting in increasing death rates from food-borne diseases. MOST American food import ports have NO FDA INSPECTORS AT ALL. Bad food exporters know very-well how to get their contaminated food into USA. 2011 Republican maniacs are trying to REDUCE funding for food safety monitoring, so they can give tax breaks and subsidies to parasitic economy-destroying billionaires.

    (4) From the time that Bush / Cheney took office until mid-2011, the value of the U.S. dollar fell 85% (relative to gold). In less than two years, food and fuel prices jumped up about 80%. Our government subsidizes low-quality high-fat and high-fructose diabetes-causing factory food. As oil prices continue to rise in the future, low-quality, deadly food will become increasingly more expensive. Is this the legacy you want to leave your children?

    CSA greenhouses offer solutions for all of these deadly well-documented trends:

    Did your USD income and savings portfolio double from 2008 to 2011 ?
    If not, U.S. government fiat currency stole real net worth from you,
    and your standard of living is rapidly declining

    On the other hand, inequitable U.S. government policies helped
    many parasitic Wall Street billionaires double their net worth,
    while they received taxpayer bailouts, subsidies, and huge tax breaks

    What could America do with one Trillion dollars in wasted bailout money ?

    THE PURCHASING POWER OF FIAT CURRENCY IS NOT CONSTANT

    Only Blind Dummies think that 2008 $4 gas was the same price as 2011 $4 gas

     

     

    Is the Stock Market Up or Down? Only Non-Learning Dummies think that the stock market is going up

    Foolish people look at the Wall Street Dow Jones Industrial Average and say: "Our economy must be doing well - See how the Dow is UP."

    They are using the false assumption that the value of the dollar is constant, when it is actually declining rapidly. The ignored Truth is graphical.

    Stock Brokers who predict "too good to be true" endless growth and prosperity
    will always find endless shortsighted fools to pay their commissions

    Non-learning entities ignore or quickly forget events that
    work against their selfish greed and love of money motivation

    "There ain't but one thing wrong with every one of us in the world,

    It is curious that the most-selfish people tend to be the biggest losers

     

    The hopeless suicidal fiat-money inflation trend is irrefutable

    The future value of the worth-less U.S Dollar is 100% predictable

    Fiat Currency ALWAYS Collapses, due to greed and corruption
    That is why the U.S. founding fathers made worthless paper ILLEGAL !
    Corrupt Congressional Criminals Violate The U.S. Constitution:

    U.S. Constitution Article I, Section 10:
    "No State shall … coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing
    but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts."

    Printing Fiat Currency Is A Federal Crime of Enormous Theft from the
    mediocre majority who haven't a clue about "takeawayfroms" and "goesintos"!

     

    Add up all of the money that you have made since 2001
    Subtract the taxes you paid for: federal / state / local income,
    capital gains, Social Security, Medicare, gasoline tax, sales tax,
    property tax, etc. then take away from that about 84% for the net worth
    that was STOLEN from you by faith-based Fed fiat currency devaluation

    The U.S. government took almost everything middle-class people made,
    and left them (you) with a mere pittance for the last ten years of work
    Most American's net worth declined since Bush / Cheney took office

    You are clearly an indentured slave of the government that YOU elected
    Your entire family is owned by debt to Ben Shalom Bernanke


    The current government exists only by the consent of the governed
    You got exactly what the mediocre majority did (or did not) vote for
    80% of brain-dead enslaved Americans didn't even take the time to vote!
    Those who tolerate government corruption have no right to complain
    Unpunished convicted criminals like Rep. Charlie Rangel keep getting reelected

    How many people have YOU convinced to vote against corruption ?
    Whatever your answer, it obviously was not enough !

     

    Is your purchasing-power net worth more or less now than 2001 ?

    When will you be worth ZERO or have negative net worth ?
    (For millions of Americans, that day has already arrived)

    How much longer can you expect to make a living wage ?
    Will there be any welfare available when you lose your job, home,
    and gas-guzzling SUV's, and the U.S. Dollar is worth ZERO ?

     

    Is your future based on faith in the USD, or something with real value ?

     

    Should you invest in high-technology company stocks ?

    In 1993, Al Gore and Bill Clinton set the "Information Superhighway" in motion (using 1972 Internet technology). In only 8 years, almost every public school had access to the worldwide web. It was an explosive time in tech stock speculation. Alan Greenspan (the Fed Head) said it was "irrational exuberance" - which triggered the tech bubble burst.

    March 10, 2000, Microsoft stock was $101 per share. If we adjust that number for subsequent dividends and stock splits, Microsoft stock was worth $40 per share.

    By June 10, 2011, the adjusted close of Microsoft stock was $23.71 per share. IF the value of the USD had remained constant from 2000 to 2011, you would have lost one third of your investment in Microsoft. BUT, the value of the U.S. Dollar has fallen precipitously, so 2011 Microsoft stock is worth roughly 10% of 2000 Microsoft stock price, relative to the purchasing power of gold.

    Millions of naive people have lost a great deal of net worth by investing in the trailing-edge-technology low-software-quality poorly-managed Microsoft corporation, and other stocks on the NASDAQ technology stock composite index. Many arrogant "investment advisor" fools make money by telling YOU what to do.

    Have you ever known anyone dumb enough to recommend that you buy and hold Microsoft stock? Did you? Did you pay a commission for their bad advice? Are you sorry that you did? Have you learned anything from the expensive experience?

    On June 10, 2011 the NASDAQ peaked at 5,048, and the market price of gold was $292 per ounce. The NASDAQ was worth about 17.3 ounces of gold.

    On June 10, 2011 the NASDAQ was 2,644 - down 48% from it's 2000 high (assuming constant value of the USD, which is FALSE). Gold was $1529 / oz.

    On June 10, 2011, the NASDAQ was only worth about 1.73 ounces of gold - Almost exactly 10% of what the NASDAQ was worth in 2000 - A 90% loss over the 11+ year period.

    After seeing Great Depression Wall Street shenanigans, and gambling losses of those who bet on horses,
    Will Rogers said:"The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back in your pocket."

    Do YOU still own declining NASDAQ stock that you had in 2000? Does your mutual fund or pension fund own Microsoft?

    Do you still think that Wall Street stocks are a wise long-term investment?

    For the NASDAQ to merely break even, it should be over 26,432, measured in worth-less 2011 U.S. Dollars

    Give me a call when the U.S. Dollar recovers, and gold is less than $300 per ounce again

    Wake me when the NASDAQ is over 27,000 and rising - It jus' ain't gonna happen!

    Corruption only leads downhill - Recovery is not remotely possible with the current Fed policies, deregulation, and debt in place

    USA needs to declare bankruptcy, throw the criminal thieves in Federal Prison without parole, and start all over again
    - Living sustainability within our resources in harmony with Nature and each other - Anything less is too little too late

    If we do not do it voluntarily, revolutionary economic collapse, starvation, and widespread anarchy will do it for us very soon - The only reason it has not already happened is foolish faith in the unsustainable stupidity du jour.

    Most Wall Street stock prices have been declining in net purchasing power faster than the faith-based U.S. Dollar fiat currency - made by profiteers out of nothing but thin air

    Do you agree with the insane Republican idiots who still want to privatize Social Security and move it into the stock market?

    Do you agree with the criminal Congress that steals from the Social Security Trust Fund to finance their vote-buying pork-barrel deficit-spending political projects?

     

    Faith-based U.S. Fiat Dollars may soon have very-few uses:

    Worthless U.S. Dollar Used As Toilet Paper

    Are you working hard to accumulate declining dollars ?

    Are you pleased with your return on savings investments (relative to gold) ?

    IF (when) the value of the USD falls near zero, how will your family survive ?

    Will you have year-round food to eat ?

    Are you in total denial of the unavoidable documented TRUTH ?

    Do you believe in Ben Bernanke's insane policies and fraudulent LIES ?

    Do you trust politicians from any party to correct the crises they created ?

    "It's almost been worth this Depression to find out how little our big men know." - Will Rogers
    USA didn't learn our lesson from the Great Depression - Will we learn anything from total collapse ?

    Are there any other problems that we need to solve besides the collapse of our fiat currency ?

     

     

    The World's Ineffective Policeman

    USA Storm Trooper

    In 2010, the U.S. Department Of Defense reported that they had 2,278,895 active duty and reserve military personnel located in the U.S. and more than 150 countries around the world (NOT including all of their dependents, plus unreported hidden military-and-civilian subcontractors, and Top Secret classified covert DOD and CIA operations).

     

    Few American taxpayers could find on a globe most of the 150 countries where we have ongoing military operations. Most Americans have no clue why we are in such countries in the first place. Even Congress has little insight into our most-covert secret operations. DOD and CIA refuse third party audits. Taxpayers are forced to blindly trust that everything that DOD and CIA do is correct (which it often is NOT).

     

    The largest numbers of reported overseas U.S. military personnel are in: Afghanistan, Australia, Bahrain, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Diego Garcia, Djibouti, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Greenland, Guam, Guantanamo Bay Cuba, Honduras, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, "Afloat" and "Transient." http://siadapp.dmdc.osd.mil/personnel/MILITARY/history/hst1012.pdf

     

     

    We strongly support the patriotism, bravery, and huge sacrifices made by our all-volunteer armed forced and their families, BUT, we mostly disapprove of the way that our corrupt American government ineffectively uses this precious human resource in some places where we are hated, and where we have no business being at all any more. Military leaders gave Congress very-bad advice about what we should do in Vietnam, and they advised the same stupid profit-motivated things in Afghanistan and Iraq.

     

     

    Well-informed Congressman and Presidential Candidate Ron Paul said that USA has 900 mostly-unnecessary military bases around the world. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2011/sep/14/ron-paul/ron-paul-says-us-has-military-personnel-130-nation/  Some journalists report that there are as many as 1,200 worldwide U.S. military bases - No civilian seems to know for sure, not even the President. The exactly number is kept very-secret indeed. It is not even available through a Freedom Of Information Act request. Attempts to publish the details are squelched. The U.S. DOD and CIA are clearly above (and not subject to) American law or the Constitution.

     

    America’s military expenditures are nearly as large as the sum total of all other countries around the world combined http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_military_expenditures

     

    American companies profitably provide deadly military equipment to many other nations
    Under Reagan, Rumsfeld and Cheney illegally provided weapons to Iraq and Iran
    They fabricated lies about non-existent weapons of mass destruction to justify preemptive Iraq war


    It increases USA GDP when countries go to war - America encourages endless war
    U.S. money says: "In God We Trust", but the truth is America covets war profits much more

     

    Accountants should SUBTRACT all military expenditures from national GDP, not add them to it
    America's warped military sense of values is the exact opposite of those who truly love peace

    It is amazing to me that the political party that promotes guns and war, mostly claims to be Christian
    They most certainly do NOT believe in: "Peace on Earth - Good will toward men"

     

    America’s current weapons of mass destruction can now kill every human on Earth - a thousand times over

    Is such suicidal military madness ever warranted under any circumstance at all?

    If Iran detonates an atomic bomb in Boston harbor, should America kill every human on Earth?

    Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) is counterproductive against suicidal religious fanatics !

     

    The USSR Soviet Union went totally bankrupt trying to keep up with U.S. outrageous military and space expenditures

    Is there even one rational American taxpayer who thinks that
    all of the military money USA now spends is cost effective?

    Do we really need any wars that last ten years?

    Do we still need to occupy World War II and Cold War countries?

     

    Do you approve of the military corruption in Congress?

    Is America a democracy where the majority rule?

    Will you vote for any incumbent? WHY?

     

    Those criminal politicians who are badly corrupted by the extremely-profitable U.S. military industrial complex became upset when President Obama wanted to reduce the rate of military budget increases, after withdrawing all troops from the unjustified Bush/Cheney war in Iraq.

     

    Rick Perry said that he would immediately send our troops back into Iraq, despite the fact that the Iraq government (that USA paid to establish) does NOT WANT US THERE. He grossly exaggerated when he said that "Iran is LITERALLY moving at the speed of light back into Iraq." IF, Iran could move at the speed of light, they could invade Israel and the USA in less than a second. IF Iran had light speed technology, they could use it to colonize other planets. What an irrational, unscientific idiot Rick Perry has always been!

     

    In 2012, Mitt Romney said he wants to INCREASE U.S. soldiers deployed around the world by 100,000.
    Could anything be more irrational when we are $15 TRILLION in debt.

     

    We already borrow 40% of what we spend on our military budget - much of it from China!

     

    China’s military budget is the second largest in the world, at only 1 / 6 of what USA wastes ineffectively each year.

     

    If America entered into a war with China, we would have to borrow money from China to fight it - TRULY ABSURD!

     

    If America reduced its military budget by a whopping 80%, we would still have the most-powerful, dominate, military operation on planet Earth.

     

    Extreme government corruption prevents America from acting in a rational military manner.

     

    Is all of this moronic military behavior worth placing such a huge debt on our grandchildren, while we allow our own infrastructure to crumble?

     

    God did NOT assign USA to spend $700 billion a year to ethnocentrically kill people who do not live the way we think that they should.

    How dare we ask God's blessing when we know that our collateral damage kills many innocent non-combatant innocent women and children.

    Greed and ungodly religious bigotry has started more wars than any other reason in human history.

    "Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is perhaps the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes . . . known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. . . . No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare." - James Madison - Fourth U.S. President - Political Observations, 1795

     

    War cannot exist unless greedy people covet something other than peace

    The Bible says that Jesus came for "Peace on Earth - Good will toward men." Greedy hate mongers crucified Him, because they feared losing their power over the people. We now send young patriots into deadly war to kill people in Jesus' name - knowing the collateral damage it will bring - What insane hypocritical ethnocentric bigotry!

    How can America impose our own form of corrupt capitalistic democracy on nations that hate us, WHEN OUR OWN DIVISIVE USA PARTISAN DEMOCRACY IS NOW SO TOTALLY DYSFUNCTIONAL. We cannot even manage our budget, or provide living-wage jobs to our people.

    Let us FIRST get our own house of cards in order, and repair our obsolete crumbling infrastructure, BEFORE we borrow another trillion dollars from China to rebuild the other nations that we help destroy.

     

    Republicans have always been the corrupt supporters of high profits for the military industrial complex, at the expense of soldier's lives, deep debt, and taxpayer funds.

    In 2011, the Republican House passed their budget, which called for widespread unpopular austerity and slashes in Medicare, Medicaid and prepaid Social Security program spending, but THEIR CORRUPTION INCREASED THE MILITARY BUDGET BY 17%.

    On August 31, 2011, The bipartisan / nonpartisan U.S. Congressional "Commission on Wartime Contracting" published their Final Report http://www.wartimecontracting.gov/

    When America goes to war, half of the people involved are now government contractors. We've spent $206 Billion on contractors for war with Afghanistan and Iraq alone. The Wartime Contracting Commission conservative consensus says that up to $60 Billion (nearly 30%) was spent on useless unproductive Waste, Fraud, and Abuse (WFA). 10%-to-20% WFA is typical in corrupt American government. 30% is exceptionally high. WHY?

    In the 1990's, USA significantly cut spending to balance our previously-bloated Reagan / Bush budgets. Clinton / Gore significantly reduced military spending. We failed to reply to direct attacks from al Qaeda on U.S. interests overseas, and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Reagan, Rumsfeld and Cheney funded the Afghanistan Mujahideen, which morphed into Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda. The Reagan Administration focussed on the USSR, and created our worst terrorist enemy. Clinton failed to respond effectively to the growing threat.

    In some cases, we now realize that shortsighted false-economy balanced-budget stupidity prevailed. Military auditors and inspectors were laid off. When the unplanned Afghanistan and Iraq wars were quickly ramped up after 9/11/2001, the auditors and inspectors were NOT replaced, and $60 billon was lost to corrupt WFA, by trying to save a few million.

    Tea Party Terrorists are now demanding similar false economy

    We are truly a non-learning nation, forever repeating our worst shortsighted mistakes

    We myopically focus on today's crises symptoms, not the cause-and-effect problem source

    Sometimes you have to spend a million to save a billion - 1,000-to-1 benefit / cost ratio

    Sometimes, irrational budget cutting can be a truly terrible thing to do

    Every dollar spent on corrupt WFA is a dollar that should have been spent productively elsewhere. Many Americans were already aware of slimy no-bid contracts that funneled billions of unearned profits to Vice President Dick Cheney's Halliburton Corporation, which greatly increased the value of Cheney's personal stock options. Chapter Three of the Wartime Contracting Commission Final Report documents many more deplorable taxpayer rip-offs. Like Dastardly Dick Cheney, the government-and-contractor perpetrators of these many documented federal crimes have mostly gone unpunished. In Dick Cheney's latest book, he arrogantly admits multiple war crimes with impunity - saying he has no regrets (for the documented damage he has clearly done to our crumbling country morality.

    When America rebuilds Libya, we can expect continuing similar contractor WFA. The commission states that Congress people who resist their specific solution proposals should be documented by the media. Contractor WFA is easily eliminated, IF politicians are forced by voters to make it happen. The problems is not limited to the military. WFA corruption grips our entire global government.

     

    Let's suppose hypothetically that we stopped raising America's unsustainable faux debt ceiling, or that we had a balanced budget amendment in place. Here is a simple question about America's future priorities. If you had to pick only one of the following options, which one would YOU chose? (1) Stop paying all Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid payments, or (2) Stop being the world's policeman. In 2011, the Republican Ryan budget tried to move toward number (1), so they could give huge tax cuts to the wealthiest destructive Wall Street parasites. The Boehner Budget moved even farther in the same negative direction.

    Do the corrupt Tea Party Terrorist Republicans accurately represent YOU?

    Is it worth having a huge military budget that tries to defend a greedy, selfish, declining place to live?

    USA could provide BETTER national defense with ONE FOURTH of our current enormous inefficient military budget - managed by rational leadership.

    A federal government is necessary to provide services that individuals, corporations, and states cannot cost-effectively provide for themselves. Providing for a nation's common defense is a primary example. Important military budget questions are:

    How well are we defending ourselves ?

    How much does it cost - all things considered ?

    Could we do a better job much-more cost effectively ?

    Do you want corrupt profiteering politicians (like supremely-evil Dick Cheney) to send your children into harm's way, based on fabricated lies ?

    For 8 years, Dick Cheney was the U.S. President (Illiterate, alcoholic, low-I.Q., bumbling-bumpkin George W. Bush did not have a clue what to do).

     

    Truth is the first casualty of war - years before the first bullet is fired. IF all people understood the TRUTH, they would never start any war.

     

    America spends $80 billion a year to gather (and mostly ignore) so-called "intelligence." It took USA ten years to get Osama bin Laden, when he was living in million-dollar luxury less than 3,000 feet from Pakistan's military academy, in a very-open-and-obvious location. During his CBS "60 Minutes" television interview that aired on May 8, 2011, President Obama said that Osama was "hiding in plain sight" for five years. George W. Bush knew the exact movements of some of bin Laden's couriers for most of that time, but failed to act.

    Do you think America should continue to send billions of borrowed dollars to Pakistan, when they clearly harbored and gave aid to Osama bin Laden, and their radicals continue to publically burn our flag? The answer is complex. Former President Carter said in 2011 that Pakistan has a hundred nuclear weapons. Osama was very close to the Pakistan military.

    Sending aid to the enemy of our enemy (like Reagan, Rumsfeld and Cheney sent military aid to Saddam Hussain and to the Mujahideen) can create our worst nation's enemies. Giving money to a tyrant dictator (like the Shah of Iran) does not make his nation like us.

    If termination of American aid to Pakistan causes their unstable government to fall, their nukes are in the hands of the military that sustained bin Laden - Spooky indeed !

     

    We cannot possibly win a War Against Terrorism by terrorizing the families of terrorists,
    any more than we could win a war against all earthquakes by stomping our foot in anger!

    Cowardly terrorists are the ones who hide behind precision-guided smart bombs, and
    "no-risk" Nevada video games that control deadly unmanned UAV drone bombs
    (nuclear warheads optional and on the table)

    "I want to scare the hell out of the rest of the world" - Colin Powell

    There is no way to explode a smart bomb without any risk of collateral mutilation
    to unarmed non-combatant innocent women and children

     

    The way to destroy one's enemy is to turn him into your friend

    With today's advanced technology and high productivity, we could terminate poverty
    and suffering by providing living-wage-jobs with benefits for every family on Earth
    (IF war mongers would STOP wasting $1.7 Trillion on deadly futile war)

     

    In an interview on the Today show http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/23220908#23220908 George Bush said:
    "I think actually that the spending on the war might help with jobs, 'cause we're buying equipment and people are working."
    In several other speeches, Bush said that the war is good for our economy

    Bush stated that the best way to grow the U.S. economy is by waging war
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/27/bush-war-boosts-the-us-ec_n_592444.html
    Insane Bush wanted USA to replicate the successful nation-building strategy it implemented at the end of World War I I.
    "What needs to be done, and the best way to revitalize the economy is the United States has grown based on wars,
    . . . all the economic growth that the U.S. has had was based on the different wars it has waged."

    As long as there are morons who believe that war is profitable, there can be no peace

     

    No one has ever "won" a war - ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE LOSERS!

    The total cost of war continues decades after the last bomb explodes
    This is a life-critical lesson that has been ignored for thousands of years

    "We will bankrupt ourselves in the vain search for absolute security" - Dwight Eisenhower

    Those who enter war do not have a child's understanding of mathematics
    (especially "takeawayfroms")

     

     

    America now borrows every penny that we spend for our badly-bloated, wasteful, Department of Defense

    The U.S. Congress has tried for decades to get a third-party independent audit of our out-of-control DOD, but the powerful Pentagon still insists that they are UNAUDITABLE (according to Simpson / Bowles). Do you think that every American defense dollar is always spent wisely? Do you feel as frustrated as we do?

    America's population is only 4.5% of the world - far below China and India - BUT, America's borrowed military budget is larger than the next largest 15 nations combined !

    Somehow, we got the stupid unsustainable idea that America should be the world's policeman (at least whenever oil is involved), and DOD should have an unmonitored unlimited credit card to secretly spend our borrowed money any way that they want. My wife and I have security clearances to work on government projects. We have seen extreme waste, fraud and abuse first hand, but we cannot legally ever publish the specific details, or we would be sent to federal prison. The few who do blow the whistle are discredited, belittled and ignored by the non-learning mediocre majority.

    USA has a legally-binding treaty with Taiwan to defend them against mainland China. If such an armed conflict took place, America would fight against much-larger China to defend Taiwan, BUT we would have to borrow the funds from China to do it! This is way BEYOND ABSURD !

    We ran up well-over a TRILLION dollars of needless debt for our children by starting an unjustified preemptive war in Iraq. The long-term cost will be over twice that amount. The deadly unprecedented, unjustified, preemptive "war to prevent war" Iraq war was based on well-documented BIG LIES by supremely-sinister Dick Cheney about non-existent weapons of mass destruction. We will be paying mutilated Iraq veterans over a trillion more dollars in benefits for decades.

    The net result of Dastardly Dick Cheney's "Operation Iraqi Liberation" (O.I.L.) war is that when America completely pulls out, Iraq will probably be overrun by their long-term enemy Iran, who will take control of Iraq's oil fields. Is that what Cheney really wanted to do? Where is the outrage? Why isn't Cheney in federal prison today? The war in Iraq was fought for one reason only: to increase the value of Cheney's Halliburton stock options.

    Our corrupt politicians are above the law, while taxpayers must pay dearly for us to be the unsustainable policeman for the rest of the world.

    Preemptive "war to end war" is an insane asylum, where the administrators are criminally-insane murders

    In Dick Cheney's O.I.L. war, the terrible enemies of American patriots were NOT overseas - they were in Washington, D.C.!

    "A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government." - Edward Abbey

     

     

    Social Security's Criminal Crumbling Foundation

    Socail Security Dysfunctional Pyramid Scheme

     

    U.S. Social Security is PROFOUNDLY ACTUARILY UNSOUND

    Under current law, Social Security CANNOT POSSIBLY keep the promises that have been made on your annual Social Security Statement.

    Social Security is a criminal Ponzi scheme that must collapse very soon (or be radically restructured into something much different).

    The U.S. President and Congress know for certain that the statements sent out by the Social Security Administration are ABSOLUTELY FALSE CRIMINAL FRAUD that cannot possibly be true under any foreseeable future circumstances - even with the most-optimistic view of the U.S. economy and retirement demographics.

    When 50-year-olds look at their official Social Security statement for retirement planning purposes, the numbers on it are IMPOSSIBLE LIES, under the Social Security legislation that is currently in place.

    The ONLY way Social Security could have ever worked would have been to invest income in a locked box - at an net interest rate that is above the fiat currency devaluation rate. Ending the gold standard, and rapid fiat currency devaluation guaranteed Social Security bankruptcy (very soon).

    The Corrupt Criminal U.S. Congress turned Social Security into an impossible illegal Ponzi Scheme. It is well-past the total-collapse tipping point.

    Social Security does NOT respond to predictable demographic dynamics and increasing American life expectancy.

    When Social Security was created in 1937, life expectancy was 63 years and retirement benefits began at age 65. People only received Social Security for very few years.

    Today, Social Security encourages people to begin their benefits at age 62. An average retired couple can now expect to receive Social Security benefits for 21 years.

    People who made poor choices about education and career think that work is unpleasant drudgery, and they naïvely look forward to Social Security being their salvation. Poor lifestyle choices about nutrition, exercise, drugs, alcohol, smoking, stress, and bad mental behaviors increase mental and physical disabilities, and the related costs to society.

    People who love their work and make good lifestyle choices often want to continue contributing to society beyond age 65, but U.S. Social Security insanely provides a disincentive for them to live a more-productive life, where their experience can benefit all of society. How very suicidally-stupid Social Security is today!

    Previous cultures assigned great value and respect to the wisdom that accumulates with lifelong learning. America DOES NOT! The stupid structure of Social Security makes this problem even worse.

    It is now expected to take about $1.3 million to cover living expenses and heath care expenses for new retirees. These expenses are often more than one third of a person's lifetime earning potential. Social Security income is only about 11% of today's payroll taxes. This tax rate cannot begin to provide the benefits that have been by promised to Americans on their Social Security retirement planning statements. SS is actuarially unsound - Totally unsustainable under the current corrupt fraudulent SS legislation.

    If you ask Americans would they prefer the government to either: (1) Increase Social Security payroll taxes, or (2) Reduce the Social Security benefits that they have been promised and planned for, their first answer will be an impossible "NEITHER." If they are forced to chose one or the other, the majority will usually select (1) increase taxes. There are several reasons for this.

    People who are currently paying no or low payroll taxes will not be impacted much by SS tax rate increases, BUT they will be seriously impacted by benefit cuts. Two thirds of people on Social Security receive the majority of their monthly income from it. For one third of recipients, Social Security is their ONLY SOURCE OF INCOME. For millions of people who are barely able to pay their increasing utility bills and low-quality food expenses, the proposed Republican Social Security benefit reductions would be about equal to one week of food per month. It is a starvation strategy, which would kill many Social Security recipients, so Republicans can give large tax breaks to millionaires. How insanely-cruel is that?

    Americans currently pay Social Security tax on their first $107,000 of income. If that number was doubled, Americans making less than $107K would not notice the difference. Republicans reject this idea (which the majority of their constituents support), because the clear Republican goal is to inequitably increase wealth accumulation for the richest 2%.

     

    During debate on the Senate floor in July 2011, extremely-corrupt Republican Senator Orin Hatch argued that the wealthy already pay too much in taxes, (even though their tax rates have been at modern lows since Bush / Cheney cut them down 2001 and 2003, and millionaire's income has increased 88% since 2009).

    Do the wealthy already pay too much tax? Here is the TRUTH about Republican LIES: 15 years ago, the top 400 U.S. income tax returns were for people making over $50 million per year. Although the top income tax bracket was 39.6%, they only paid an average of 28%, due to many Republican tax loopholes designed specifically for the wealthy.

    In 2010, the top 400 U.S. income tax returns were for people making well over $350 million per year (over 700% increase). Although the Bush / Cheney top income tax bracket was 35%, the top 400 only paid an average of 16%, which is LESS than their secretaries, housekeepers, and the people who prepare and serve their food.

    Are the wealthy really paying too much tax? Republican tax breaks and loophole for the wealthy have bankrupted America, created the 2008 crash, left our children deep in debt, and shifted the tax burden to the working class. In essence, the modern American working class are either indentured slaves to the wealthy, OR millions of them have no hope whatsoever of having a living wage job with benefits.

    The top 50 parasitic, job-killing, Wall Street hedge fund managers and commodity speculators make OVER A BILLION DOLLARS EACH PER YEAR. Our red, white, and blue system greatly rewards the most-destructive scum of the Earth. Almost ALL of their income tax is at the low 15% Capital Gains tax rate - well BELOW what the average American wage earner pays.

    Democrats believe that the Capital Gains tax rate should return to the previous 20% rate for the higher income brackets (before Bush / Cheney, when USA had a budget surplus under Clinton).

    2011 Republican Presidential candidates promise that they will ELIMINATE ALL CAPITAL GAINS TAX - Leaving many American millionaires to pay only an average of 1% per year income tax. Orin Hatch and other Republican megalomaniacs are the Most Spectacular Sinister LIARS on Earth today!

    Do you agree? Is this the legacy you want to leave your oppressed children and grandchildren?

    In Orin's bizarro mind, the middle and lower classes should pay MORE, even if they already cannot pay their skyrocketing bills, as politicians and Bernanke drive down the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar to less than two cents.

    Why did any middle class, unemployed, or poor people ever vote for such Republican insanity? Answer: Because corrupt Supreme Court judge Clarence Thomas allowed wealthy corporations like Exxon, the Koch brothers, and Wall Street banks to contribute unlimited campaign bribes to Republicans, which polluted gullible minds with false campaign advertisements in 2010. Did the Republicans do in 2011 what they promised in 2010? They said that jobs were their number one priority, but half a year later they had not submitted even one job creation bill, and unemployment is rising past 9.2%. That is what foolish mediocre-minded knee-jerk Americans voted for in 2010. What will happen in 2012?

    Deeply-entrenched Orin Hatch will probably be re-elected again and again by non-caring, non-learning, STUPID lower-income and unemployed Utah voters, who Orin apparently wants to tax and starve to death. This is way beyond anything rational at all. It IS The American Way.

    Do big-business lobbyist-corrupted Republicans like Orin Hatch represent the best interest of the majority of their constituents, or all Americans?

     

    The REALLY SCARY THING is that it is extremely rare for Americans to re-elect a President when unemployment is over 7%. Obama's disappointing failure to meet most of his 2008 campaign promises implies that the next Republican U.S. President elected in 2012 will make American tax code inequity iniquity many times worse than it is today.

    If the working class must pay almost all U.S. taxes, and they cannot make a living wage
    - a violent revolution against their wealthy oppressors cannot be far behind

    Voting for a Democrat or a Republican is clearly NOT solving our extreme Congressional corruption problem

    If millionaires make the dollar collapse (as trends are clearly headed), then their net worth will soon be negative

    "History does not repeat itself - but it rhymes" - Mark Twain

     

    Every irrational selfish stupid person wants a free lunch - something for nothing
    - which is politically popular, but is an actuarially-unsound BIG BAD LIE

    If dummies are promised a free lunch, they want to believe it, even if it is impossible (as is the fraudulent Social Security Ponzi scheme).

    Our dishonest corrupt government knows that mediocre-minded voters are too stupid to understand their unrealistic obvious Social Security lies.

    "Men are so simple and so much inclined to obey immediate needs that a deceiver will never lack victims for his deceptions" - Niccolo Machiavelli "The Prince"

    "You can deceive some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time" - Abraham Lincoln

    Well-educated young people with higher income potential are learning that they cannot possibly receive the benefits from Social Security that they have been promised, and are paying for, EVEN IF THE U.S. DOLLAR DOES NOT COLLAPSE (which is highly unlikely). The youngest members of Congress are developing revolutionary resistance to unsustainable Social Security status quo. The solution is non-trivial. Every actuary says that the sooner we start to fix Social Security, the less traumatic the transition will be. BUT, since 1983, corrupt Congress has done NOTHING - far surpassing the tipping point, and making the solution more impossible every year. Inaction is suicidal, immoral, and extremely cruel.

    One third of American adults are now receiving Social Security benefits, plus many children of retirees and deceased people

    The original Social Security System was NEVER capable of supporting such a ball-and-chain, plus Disability Insurance and children until they reach age 18. Such oppressive burdens are like constructing a ten-story building on top of a foundation designed to support a one-story house - It WILL collapse soon.

    Those who are unaware are failing to prepare for the predictable imminent inevitable.

    In the 1950's (when most baby boomers were in grade school), there were 16 people paying into the Social Security system for every one taking out. Today, there are only 3 paying in for every one taking out. In 2010, Social Security tax was 40% of all U.S. Federal tax receipts - A heavy burden on all Americans paying in. However, it was less than half of what Social Security payroll taxes should be, if benefits are going to remain the same as those promised on your extremely-fraudulent Social Security benefit statement.

    YOU HAVE BEEN KNOWINLY LIED TO BY THE CONGRESS AND SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION YEAR AFTER YEAR

    Trillions of dollars have been "stolen" from Social Security Trust Fund, and used for out-of-control short-term wasteful federal pork-barrel spending, to get politicians re-elected. The SS trust fund should have $3 Trillions in it plus compound interest, but what it does have is a pile of worthless I.O.U.'s from the general fund.

    America cannot pay the principle or even the interest on our $14+ Trillion national debt (to China, Japan, and OPEC).

    USA most-certainly cannot repay the Social Security Trust Fund I.O.U.'s - The SS Ponzi scheme is already bankrupt without the trust fund in place

    If by some impossible miracle, the general fund repaid the SS trust fund, and the U.S. economy does not have another crash like 2008, then the SS trust fund would still be totally used up and penniless by 2036. Our government knows this for absolute certainty, but they still continue to lie on the Social Security statements that they send out to YOU.

    Do NOT base you future retirement planning on your Social Security statement bald-faced lies - What alternative do YOU have?

    In 2011, the Social Security Administration arbitrarily decided to STOP mailing out these fraudulent SS statements, despite the fact that legislation requires them. You will NOT receive a Social Security statement in 2011. There should be a class-action law suit brought against the Social Security Administration for violating the law and not doing the duty that they are being paid to do. The General Accounting Office loudly complained, but GAO was ignored by the corrupt Republican House Ways and Means Social Security Committee.

    PONZI SCHEME FRAUD IS A CRIME. THEY ALL BELONG IN FEDERAL PRISON, NEXT TO BERNIE MADOFF! How is Social Security any different?

    At the current rate by 2020, there will be one person taking Social Security payments out for every two paying in, as the rest of the baby boomers retire.

    Is this long-term sustainable, or is it SHORT-TERM SOCIAL SECURITY SUICIDE? The selfish greedy baby boomers have stolen from their children and grandchildren.

    Social Security, Medicare and Medicare were compassionate fanciful social experiments, but under the covers, they are clearly nothing but actuarially-unsound impossible Ponzi-scheme fraudulent porky political false promises. Baby boomers have left nothing for their grandchildren but gigantic unpayable debt, crumbling infrastructure, and bankruptcy to look forward to.

    USA not only borrows 40% of every dollar we spend (primarily from China, Japan, and OPEC) to pay our bills, but Baby Boomers have STOLEN from their Social Security Trust Fund - Bankrupting their own retirement, and especially their children's future!

     

    Social Security is a REGRESSIVE TAX - It places a larger burden on lower income people that cannot afford it than on the rich. The Reagan and 2001-2003 Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% forced the government to ROB the Social Security Trust Fund to pay for huge budget deficits, making low-income people pay even more of the government's out-of-control spending, and now we MUST cut back on Social Security and Medicare benefits to make up for the immoral SS Ponzi-scheme shortfall.

    July 2011, Republican Senators offered bills to: (1) Increase the age when people can begin Social Security benefits, and (2) REDUCE the Cost Of Living Adjustments (COLA) for people receiving Social Security benefits. The corrupt dishonest calculation for today's COLA says USA has ZERO COST OF LIVING INCREASE. There has been NO COLA since 2008.

    Have you noticed that basic commodities like food and fuel have increased about 80% in that time frame? Congress apparently has not. The dishonest Social Security Administration says there is no need for a COLA, and the Republicans want to REDUCE COLA even further than the zero that it is today - OUTRAGEOUS INSANITY ! ! !

    The Republicans say that their Social Security benefit reductions will save $460 billion over ten years, so they can reduce the income tax rate for millionaires and billionaires from 39.6% (under Clinton's budget surplus) down to only 25% (under Ryan's Road To Disaster), which will add well over $12 Trillion to the U.S. budget deficit. Eliminating Capital Gains Tax will make inequity much worse - Can you imagine any person in America so spectacularly STUPID as to support such obvious total legislative corruption for the wealthiest Americans ? ! Almost every Republican in the House and Senate voted for the economy-and-job-destroying Ryan budget plan. They all belong in prison today!

    Middle-income people cannot possibly receive the Social Security benefits that they were fraudulently promised, and that they have already paid for all of their life. Even IF the U.S. dollar does NOT collapse (highly unlikely), there will be no Social Security Trust Fund left for the younger generation, who are now supporting the selfish baby boomer generational thieves. Are you aware? Do you care? Will you prepare? Will your grandchildren curse your memory?

    Old-Fashion Country-Boy Great-Depression Wisdom - Will Rogers wrote: "Now, when I tell you that if I was running the government, there would be no lowering of taxes, you know now a comedian is crazy. We owe more money than any nation in the world, and we ARE LOWERING TAXES. . . . All government statistics say that 70% of every dollar paid in the way of taxes goes to just keeping up our interest and a little dab of amortization of our national debts. In other words, if we didn't owe anything, our taxes would only be less than one-third what they are today."

    "You see in the old days there was mighty few things bought on credit. Your taste had to be in harmony with your income, for it had never been any other way. I think buying autos on credit has driven more folks to (rob banks) as a regular means of livelihood than any other contributing cause . . . I don't reckon there has ever been a time in American homes when there was as much junk in 'em as there is today. Even our own old shack has got more junk in it that has never been used, or looked at than a storage place. Most everybody has got more than they used to have, but they haven't got as much as they thought they ought to have. So it's all a disappointment more than a catastrophe. If we could just call back the last two or three years and do our buying a little more carefully, why we would be O.K."

    "Our whole Depression was brought on by gambling, not in the stock market alone, but in expanding and borrowing and going in debt, all just to make some money quick."

    The way to lower our taxes is to first and foremost pay all of our bills, stop living above our means, and then there will be much less need for taxes

    Only the dumbest of immediate-gratification fools believe that the quick-and-easy path of least resistance is sustainable for long

    Non-learning Americans refuse to study the huge errors of the past - We unsustainably repeat and perpetuate them again and again

     

    The March 2011 disaster in Japan means that they cannot afford to loan any more money to USA. Japan needs to sell U.S. bonds to get money to finance major reconstruction. This has already begun to make borrowing 40% of every dollar that the U.S. government spends much more difficult (and expensive for future generations).

    Large new-millennium increases in the cost of basic food, fuel, and healthcare are huge regressive burdens on the majority of Americans who have now undergone a standard of living decline. This is already causing riots that topple governments around the world. USA cannot be far away.

    At the same time, Republicans are actively trying to destroy labor unions and collective bargaining to share the wealth of the greedy. Corrupt Republican legislators demand huge tax cuts for oppressive parasite billionaires who continually lobby, bribe legislators, and pay for their reelection campaigns. A few million dollars in corruption bribes buys the creators of our crises many billions in taxpayer subsidies, for the unsustainable - including $47 BILLION of subsidies and tax deductions to the big oil companies who import foreign oil for huge profits.

    To pay for tax cuts and counter-productive subsidies for the unsustainable, Republicans want to tax Girl Scout cookie sales and Boy Scout popcorn, while forcing 9% salary decreases, eliminating already-paid-for pensions, Medicare, Social Security, and removal of collective bargaining rights for public servants like nurses, teachers, police and fire fighters. Is this the moronic future that most Americans want for their children?

     

    2010 National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform

    President Obama inherited an economic catastrophe of unprecedented deficit spending and gigantic big business bailouts. He was forced to continue for a time what he knew was unsustainable. BUT, Obama created an 18-member bipartisan commission to recommend how we return to a balanced budget. From the report:

    "Our nation is on an unsustainable fiscal path. Spending is rising and revenues are falling short, requiring the government to borrow huge sums each year to make up the difference. We face staggering deficits. In 2010, federal spending was nearly 24 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), the value of all goods and services produced in the economy. Only during World War II was federal spending a larger part of the economy. Tax revenues stood at 15 percent of GDP this year, the lowest level since 1950. The gap between spending and revenue – the budget deficit – was just under nine percent of GDP.

    "Since the last time our budget was balanced in 2001, the federal debt has increased dramatically, rising from 33 percent of GDP to 62 percent of GDP in 2010. The escalation was driven in large part by two wars and a slew of fiscally irresponsible policies, along with a deep economic downturn. We have arrived at the moment of truth, and neither political party is without blame."

    After The National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform published their alarming report and proposal in December 2010, Alan Greenspan (the former Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank) said: “I think that the type of budget agreement that was put together by Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles is the type a budget that will be passed by Congress. The only question is: Will it be before or after the bond market crisis?”

    (Greenspan believes that our bond market will collapse when the value of the U.S. dollar plummets further, and no one will lone us any more money by buying our worth-less bonds.)

    May 6, 2011 - Erskine Bowles (Co-Chair of The Commission on Fiscal Responsibility, and former White House Chief of Staff under Bill Clinton, when America had a budget surplus) said:

    “We face the biggest and most predictable economic crisis in history. It will make the crisis we just went through (which not many of us predicted) look like child's play.

    “If you think about what happens in a crisis like this: interest rates rise dramatically and  quickly, inflation, what happens to the business cost-and-availability of credit, and trillion dollar deficits as far as I can see - I think it could be UNSPEAKABLE.”

    When asked how soon this "unspeakable crisis" might happen (if America does not act immediately), Erskine Bowles said: “One-to-two years”, and Commission Co-Chair Senator Alan Simpson said: “Less than a year.” Their critical commission studied the deficit spending issues extensively. Should USA continue to ignore their clear warnings?

    America can NOT afford to wait until after the 2012 election. A major collapse of our entire economy in the very-near future is now at stake. Electing yet another dishonest ineffective politician who breaks promises will NOT avoid our highly-predictable total economic collapse. The extreme stupidity that created our current crises cannot possibly solve it.

    There are many predictable global and domestic potential trigger-event scenarios that may become the last straw that suddenly breaks the camel’s back, causing catastrophic collapse, and the BIGGEST economic crisis in history.

     

    1995 Balanced Budget Amendment - The Broken "Contract With America"

    When Republicans took back control of Congress in January 1995 (under President Clinton), the House of Representatives passed a Balanced Budget Amendment within three weeks (as promised during their 1994 Contract With America campaign of lies). In the Senate, 52 Republicans (all but one) voted for it, AND 14 of the 42 Democrats. There were six politically-corrupt Democrats who supported the Balanced Budget Amendment a year earlier, BUT who reversed their previous position and voted against it to block Republican momentum.

    If only one more 1995 Senator cared about America's future (instead of selfish politics), Congress would have passed the Balanced Budget Amendment, and if ratified by the states, we would NOT have had the Bush / Obama decade of outrageous suicidal deficit spending. Corruption Can Be Very DEADLY. Stupidity has consequences. The problem is that long-term stupidity is seldom immediately obvious.

    Such an unsustainable economy cannot possibly exist for long
    Total Economic Collapse is now likely in the early 2010's

    Any assumption about business-as-usual beyond 2012 is probably very invalid
    A three-year plan based on more status quo is almost guaranteed to be wrong

    USA Budget Deficit Alarm Clock

     

    The alarm clock went off. We've hit the snooze alarm 20 times. We fell out of bed.
    A gangster threw a bucket of ice water in our face and is pointing a shotgun at us.
    We ARE awake. Our national heart is pounding. Shall we try to go back to sleep?

     

    A USA Balanced Budget with Zero Borrowing would REQUIRE either:

    (1) A $1.6 Trillion 40% Reduction in fiscally-irresponsible inefficient-government-bureaucracy spending - In 2010, Republicans promised a $100 Billion spending cut in 2011. They settled for far less. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office said that what they actually passed on April 14, 2011 would lower 2011 fiscal year spending by a trivial $352 million, which is only 0.0352 of the $100 billion that they promised, and 0.0002 of the $1.6 Trillion that we would need to balance our budget.

    Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats have a plan to live within our means in the foreseeable future. At this rate we have no choice other than national bankruptcy.

    The only reasonable alternative is:

    (2) Return to spending and tax rates that are similar to Bill Clinton's administration, when America had a Budget Surplus - before the outrageous deficits of the unjustified Bush / Cheney O.I.L. war spending, and inequitable large tax cuts for wealthy parasitic millionaires that bankrupted our budget.

    Our current suicidal Congress and Administration continue to refuse to do either - Destroying America's future!

    Kick the can further down the road, and leave the predictable catastrophe for the next generation to solve - Selfish baby boomer generational theft!

    Almost everyone SAYS that they want to end deficit spending, but 87% of Americans polled refuse to cut major entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. We continue to spend about half of our huge military budget on maintaining totally-useless nuclear weapons - If we used any nuclear weapons, it could trigger the end of humanity on Earth. Mutually-Assured Destruction (MAD) is the total insanity of humanity!

    We live in an age where caring human behavior could eliminate poverty, or eliminate all human life on Earth (which is the current trend).

    Without draconian cuts to unsustainable entitlement programs and our ill-conceived military programs, USA can NOT balance our budget - even if we totally eliminate all other spending. With no intelligent adult supervision, the declining U.S. economy WILL collapse very soon.

     

    $1.1 Trillion in Legislated U.S. Tax Spending Pork Barrel Earmarks

    Congress was proud that they cut $16 Billion of pork-barrel earmarks out of the budget - which was only a 0.004 reduction of our bloated $3.7 Trillion budget.

    Bowles / Simpson pointed out that our 10,000-page lobbyist-corrupted U.S. tax code contains $1.1 Trillion in "tax spending" earmarks.

    Eliminating these special-interest-group concessions (like $47 billion in oil company subsidies) would go a very-long way toward eliminating our $1.5 Trillion budget deficit.

    Corrupt politicians have not yet begun to reduce earmarks for those who support their election campaigns - Extreme deficit-spending bloated budget abuse as usual.

     

    The Land of Inequality - Top 1% Versus The 99% Majority - Class Warfare

    America falsely claims to be a “Land of Equal Opportunity,” but among political big lies, few things could be further from the Truth. The U.S. Department of Labor is responsible for reducing discrimination in the workplace (somewhat), but there is a HUGE inequality in USA family income distribution from elite rich billionaires, down to the poor.

    The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) publishes their international inequality distribution of family income (GINI Index) report.

    In essence, smaller GINI Index numbers indicate more-equitable distribution of income from the wealthy to those with lower incomes. Sweden, Hungary, and Norway have the most-fair and equitable distribution of family income.

    Larger GINI Index numbers (like those for Namibia and South Africa) indicate a selfish greedy elite class that badly oppresses the powerless poor.

    Out of 137 countries monitored by the CIA, the United States ranks number 97 – very low down on the GINI Index – even worse than Iran, Nigeria, Russia, et.al.

    USA is truly a Land of Inequality, with respect to distribution of family income, as published in the CIA Factbook. Our U.S. GINI rank has been getting progressively worse since Reagan and Bush inequitably slashed taxes on the wealthiest 1% of Americans, who paid for their elections.

    In 1980, BEFORE Reagan became president, the top 1% earned 8% of American income. When Bush left office in 2008, the top 1% earned 23% of American income – MORE than the lower 50% combined. Unemployment was the highest it had been since Reagan, and the USA was in the Worst Recession Since FDR. Net income for the average American fell by $2,000 during the Bush / Cheney disastrous administration, but increased significantly for the top 1%. The value of the U.S. dollar (relative to gold) fell 82% in only one decade.

    The USA CIA Factbook documents the plain and simple net TRUTH about greedy, corrupt Republican elite oppression of poor Americans – among the worst in the world:

    American Productivity Prosperity Plan - The Rich Get Richer

    Part of the American Dream is that if we work hard,
    our children will inherit a more-prosperous world

    Since Bush / Cheney took office, our dream has become a NIGHTMARE
    Baby Boomers have stolen the future of their offspring with deep debt

    Both Republican and Democrat policies have accelerated
    the greedy hoarding of wealth by the selfish, corrupt, top 1%

    The primary motivator in American Capitalism is
    "The Love Of Money", which is the root of all evil

    America does not reqire paid time off

     

    Republicans LIE when they say that USA corporate taxes are the
    highest in the world, and therefore should be significantly reduced

    The TRUTH is that as a percent of GDP, U.S. corporate taxes
    are LOWER than every other nation on Earth except Iceland !

    USA Tax as a percent of GDP

     

    In the 1960's, American GDP and prosperity exploded for almost everyone
    With about 5% of the world's population, America produced 55% of the
    entire world's manufactured goods - much more than everyone else combined

    We were the world's largest oil exporter - Great wealth streamed into USA

    The whole world sent their best-and-brightest here for a superior education

    We invested heavily in USA future infrastructure like Interstate Highways,
    abundant clean water, hydro electric power, and manufacturing plants

    American R&D did the "impossible" and sent men to the moon in only 8 years
    Countless technologies like computers and communications were spun off

    The corporate tax rate was an equitable 4% of GDP - Many got very wealthy

    BUT SINCE THEN, CORRUPT CORPOCRACY LOBBYISTS TOOK CONTROL OF
    AMERICA'S EVIL GREEDY GOVERNMENT - THE INEQUITABLE CORPORATE
    TAX RATE FELL PRECIPITIOUSLY TO AN EXTREMELY-LOW 1.3% OF GDP

    Jobs were sent overseas - Unemployment plus underemployment grew to 20 million
    Greedy corporations are motivated only by profit - NOT the domestic economy

    Our unsustainable infrastructure crumbled - Leaving NO foundation for the future
    America's national infrastructure is now rated number 26 in the world
    Our deficit-spending economy is no longer self sustaining - We can't borrow enough

    Tea On The Donkey - Smile with us, and then think about it seriously
    An accurate mental image is worth thousands of words

    Republican Elephant Tea Pot Hosing  Down Democrat Donkey

     

    Boiling A Frog / Boiling An Elephant - Where Did The GOP Elephant-Tea-Pot Terrorists Come From ?

    There is popular published political pandering propaganda that today's American Tea Party was a spontaneous grassroots divine-intervention miraculous movement of previously-silent voters, who are Fed Up with Washington D.C. politics-as-usual corruption. Supposedly, nonpartisan voters who had never-before participated in politics magically came together with a common goal of returning America to its constitutional Christian foundation. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    In 2006, Professor David E. Campbell (Notre Dame) and Professor Robert D. Putnam (Harvard) "interviewed a representative sample of 3,000 Americans as part of our continuing research into national political attitudes, and we returned to interview many of the same people again this summer (2011). As a result, we can look at what people told us, long before there was a Tea Party, to predict who would become a Tea Party supporter five years later. We can also account for multiple influences simultaneously - isolating the impact of one factor while holding others constant." http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/17/opinion/crashing-the-tea-party.html

    "Our analysis casts doubt on the Tea Party’s origin story. Early on, Tea Partiers were often described as nonpartisan political neophytes. Actually, the Tea Party’s supporters today were highly partisan Republicans long before the Tea Party was born, and were more likely than others to have contacted government officials. In fact, past Republican affiliation is the single strongest predictor of Tea Party support today."

    "What’s more, contrary to some accounts, the Tea Party is not a creature of the Great Recession. Many Americans have suffered in the last four years, but they are no more likely than anyone else to support the Tea Party. And while the public image of the Tea Party focuses on a desire to shrink government, concern over big government is hardly the only or even the most important predictor of Tea Party support among voters."

    "So what do Tea Partiers have in common? They are overwhelmingly white, but even compared to other white Republicans, they had a low regard for immigrants and blacks long before Barack Obama was president, and they still do." (The "birthers" used their false statement that Obama is a Muslim born in Kenya, to cover up their overt bigotry.)

    "More important, they were disproportionately social conservatives in 2006 - opposing abortion, for example - and still are today. Next to being a Republican, the strongest predictor of being a Tea Party supporter today was a desire, back in 2006, to see religion play a prominent role in politics. (Theocracy NOT Democracy) And ,Tea Partiers continue to hold these views: they seek 'deeply religious' elected officials, approve of religious leaders’ engaging in politics, and want religion brought into political debates. The Tea Party’s generals may say their overriding concern is a smaller government, but NOT their rank and file, who are more concerned about putting God in government."

    "This inclination among the Tea Party faithful to mix religion and politics explains their support for Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and Governor Rick Perry of Texas. Their appeal to Tea Partiers lies less in what they say about the budget or taxes, and more in their overt use of religious language and imagery, including Mrs. Bachmann’s lengthy prayers at campaign stops, and Mr. Perry’s prayer rally in Houston."

    "Yet it is precisely this infusion of religion into politics that most Americans increasingly oppose. While over the last five years Americans have become slightly more conservative economically, they have swung even further in opposition to mingling religion and politics. It thus makes sense that the Tea Party ranks alongside the Christian Right in unpopularity."

    "On everything but the size of government, Tea Party supporters are increasingly out of step with most Americans, even many Republicans. Indeed, at the opposite end of the ideological spectrum. Today’s Tea Party parallels the anti-Vietnam War movement which rallied behind George S. McGovern in 1972. The McGovernite activists brought energy, but also stridency, to the Democratic Party - repelling moderate voters and damaging the Democratic brand for a generation. By embracing the Tea Party, Republicans risk repeating history."

    "Polls show that disapproval of the Tea Party is climbing. In April 2010, a New York Times / CBS News survey found that 18% of Americans had an unfavorable opinion of it, 21% had a favorable opinion and 46% had not heard enough. 14 months later, Tea Party opponents have more than doubled, to 40%. Tea Party ranks lower than any of the 23 other groups we asked about - lower than both Republicans and Democrats. The Tea Party is even less popular than much maligned groups like "atheists" and "Muslims." Interestingly, one group that approaches the Tea Party in unpopularity is the Christian Right."

    The population percentage of fanatical evangelical Christians is a bit less today than a decade ago. BUT, they are having a disproportionately large political influence, through Koch-brothers-funded big-oil Tea Party right-wing unconstitutional congressional corruption. The following is therefore submitted for your thoughtful consideration:

     

    Religion's Role In Self-Destructive Corrupt American Politics

    Anti-Christian Fanatical Fundamentalist - Televangelist Wealth Accumulation

    A surprising connection to today's deficit-spending destruction of the dollar

    If you are a devout religious person OR an atheist - this should fascinate you:

    Michele Bachmann was educated at Oral Roberts University. She has been a major influence on Tea Party radical fanaticism. It is helpful to understand what she learned at ORU.

    After WW I I, the original Pentecostal faith-healing televangelist Oral Roberts became quite wealthy by preaching his unique (anti-Christian) message of "Seed Faith" health-and-wealth "Prosperity Theology"

    Oral Roberts claimed to embrace the "Full Gospel." out of which emerged the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International in 1952. Oral taught the Book of Acts mysticism of Pentecostal "praying in tongues", BUT Oral Roberts rejected the Book of Acts Christian socialism practice of holding all things in common.

    In Oral Roberts' Pentecostal Revival tent meetings, strong peer pressure was applied to get people to answer an alter call, be baptized in water, and then "baptized in the Holy Spirit", as evidenced by "praying in tongues." It essentially involved the preacher or a prayer partner at the alter in front of the congregation strongly encouraging the VICTIM to make nonsensical sounds, which they were told were from the life-changing Spirt Of God (#3 in the Christian Trinity).

    The Pentecostal "tongues of fire" experience is an interesting mythical traditional song and dance (from Quakers, Shakers, Holy Rollers, et.al.), but clearly NOT TRUE. Factual evidence shows that most people who pray in tongues do NOT suddenly go out and live a totally-godly charismatic (Spirit-filled) powerful life. This proves scientifically that they are NOT totally under the influence of God's Holy Spirit.

    People who fraudulently claim to have been miraculously healed by the Holy Spirit still have many ongoing progressive physical afflictions. If a perfect God healed you perfectly and filled you with His perfect Holy Spirit, you would be perfect in mind, body, and soul - and IT WOULD SHOW. If it doesn't, you aren't.

    These are undeniable hard facts, regardless of the MYTHICAL BIG LIES that many religious-cult Pentecostal people tell today.

    "If the facts don't match your religion, LIE about the facts." Pentecostal politicians (like Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry) are continually being caught in well-documented Big Lies week after week. They claim visions of grandeur and a calling from God to do what they do. God did NOT call Michele Bachmann AND Rick Perry to win the 2012 election and become the U.S. president. At least one of them must be lying (actually both). Their submissive followers ignore the obvious truth. The gullible only hear what they want to hear - on the criminal Rupert Murdoch's dishonest Fox News, and a variety of televangelist broadcasts.

    Angry fanatical Pentecostal politicians are beyond any shadow of a doubt gullible, manipulated, manipulative, weak-minded fools - who are extremely dangerous to society.

    Their modern Tea Party crackpot popularity proves what a dishonest, selective-memory, non-learning, gullible world we live in today.

    God save us from irrational suicidal insanity. We pray in private "Thy will be done."

    If you have ever been duped into praying in tongues, think back to the human peer pressure that was applied, which got you started. It is much like the self-destructive bad habits of junk food, smoking, drinking, or drugs. One way to help addicts break an irrational suicidal habit is help them think back to the heavy-handed peer pressure that got them started in the first place. Once Christians has been pressured into praying in tongues, it is extremely difficult to get them to admit the truth. they would rather be fed to lions. New Pentecostal Christians are taught not to "blaspheme the Holy Spirit" (from Mark 3:28-29). Much of the extreme mental manipulative power of fanatical religious cults is based on an exaggerated fear of God, as presented by self-appointed human religious leaders. I Love The Majestic Creator of the Universe. I have nothing to fear from God or death. But, I despise manipulative false religious hypocrites, as Jesus did the Pharisees in His time.

    People who accepted Oral Robert's silly stupidity are clearly highly-suggestible gullible fools who are easily influenced by whatever flows from a charismatic pulpit, regardless of scientific evidence, or what the Bible actually says. Once Oral had fraudulently entrapped simple-minded rural people into his Pentecostal message, it was an easy next step to selfishly extract money from them - for his personal wealth accumulation plan. The truth is well-documented today.

    Oral's radical fanatical message was always COUNTER TO the Book of Acts Full Gospel. Oral explicitly REJECTED Jesus' teaching that "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!" - Matthew 19:24 Oral's innovative Seed Faith religious invention gave Oral the ability to fraudulently extract large donations from rich people (with a guilty conscious), which Oral did more effectively with televangelism than others had done (other than the Vatican, et.al.).

    Oral was NOT supported by most local churches, since he made it clear that he was in direct competition for donations from their congregations. Without support from a single denomination, Oral was an independent wealth-accumulation entrepreneur. He started out in a small tent. He had a simple radio broadcast that brought in money for his personal use. Every time Oral bought more radio time, his income increased. When televisions became widely available in many rural homes, Oral enthusiastically became the first televangelist, where he rapidly honed his two-faced money-raising sales pitch.

    The essence of Oral's Seed Faith message was that true believers should send their money to him, and God would reward them with great wealth on Earth (as God did Oral). Gullible "get rich quick" Pentecostal Christian fools (who selfishly wanted great wealth like Oral's) ignored the teachings of Jesus and the New Testament fact that "the love of money is the root of all evil." They faithfully sent their money to Oral, and waited for a large earthly "return on their investment" (which never came for the vast majority).

    Old-fashioned Marketing 101: Give the fish hook away for free. (There is no such thing as a "free lunch".) See "Selling God" movie: http://www.amazon.com/Selling-God-Noam-Chomsky/dp/B004MA1K1C or on Netflix

    Vendors used to give away razors for free, then charge a high price for their unique razor blades. Webpages offer free eBooks, if you'll give them your email address (so they can bombard you with targeted spam). Blood sugar meters are free for the growing number of self-made obese diabetics - then they charge almost a dollar per patented test strip for the rest of your life.

    So it is with "free" salvation. Evangelists appeal to selfish human "something for nothing" GREED (for eternity in Heaven), but then they ask for 10% of your gross income (a tithe Genesis 14) for the rest of your life !

     

    Expect A Miracle - Housing Bubble that broke the camel's back

    Since gullible simpletons had been told by Oral (and later by his son Richard) to "Expect A Miracle", followers of Roberts' Prosperity Gospel took many BAD RISKS that they selfishly expected would give God an opportunity to reward them handsomely in the here and now. One common joke was that God came to them and said: "If you want to win the lottery, give Me a break and buy a ticket." Gambling on many risky things became commonplace "prosperity gospel" normal behavior. Texas Christian George W. Bush encouraged this Bad Prosperity Theology by deregulating banks who made millions of toxic sub-prime mortgages to unworthy credit risks.

    Some economic author's attribute at least part of the huge American housing bubble to Prosperity Theology followers taking on way-too-much debt, in direct contradiction to Proverbs 22:7, which says: "The borrower is servant to the lender" and Jesus in Matthew 6:2: "No man can serve two masters . . . You cannot serve God and money."

    WEALTH-ACCUMULATION TELEVANGELIST PROSPERITY THEOLOGY CAN LEAD TO DEEP DEBT, HOME FORECLOSURE, AND ANTI-JESUS INDENTURED SERVATUDE

    A few of Oral's faithful donors starved, despite requests to extremely-wealthy Roberts for assistance. They planted many seeds of faith as they were told to do, which did NOT germinate. They expected impossible miracles, which did NOT happen. The failure facts were covered up by the wealth-accumulation Prosperity Theology community.

    Oral Roberts was the first televangelist to deceive his followers with computer-generated letters that looked like individual responses from Oral to their prayer requests. Oral's faith-healing was based on "Point Of Contact", such as Oral's "laying on of hands", "touching the television set", being "slain in the spirit" (dramatically falling down when touched), and mass-produced "Prayer Cloths" with a machine-made facsimile of Oral Roberts's signature, which were deceptively supposed to transfer Oral's healing touch to the distant receiver. The practice followed the previous pattern of "Holy Rollers" and "Quakers" who shook or rolled on the floor when touched by evangelists. It sometimes triggered sexual orgasms, which reinforced the behavior with reported euphoric visions of Jesus.

    The commercial website www.OralRoberts.com (now run by Richard Roberts) still offers Point Of Contact Prayer Cloths and promises: "Expect a miracle. . . . The moment we ask God for something - the moment we do our part and plant our seed of faith - we should believe God that the answer is on its way. It is important to expect our miracle so we can recognize it and reach forth to take it when it comes." This invalid message does not differentiate between asking for good things or evil things (like wealth accumulation), which were specifically condemned by Jesus.

    When the gullible expect seemingly-impossible selfish miracles, they will testify that ordinary scientifically-explainable occurrences are answers to their faithful fervent prayers, which perpetuates gullibility among others. Some even lie and embellish the Truth to make their miracle sound more impressive to others. You can see examples on www.OralRoberts.com . Their poorly-hidden message is: "My faith is stronger than your faith, so God has rewarded me more than you" - Pure Crackpot Hogwash.

    Tens of millions worldwide are now addicted to Oral-Roberts-legacy health-and-wealth prosperity theology, which contradicts some of Jesus' foundational teachings, and transfers great wealth to fraudulent deceivers of the faithful. If Oral Roberts' touch could heal the multitudes, why then could Oral Roberts never heal his own speech impediment lisp? Why did he die a slow painful death? Why did he go totally insane in his later years?

    If Abraham Lincoln had a fast-talking charismatic southern televangelist con man like Oral Roberts, the North could have gotten the South to do anything Lincoln wanted, and there would have been no Civil War. (chuckle)

    Oral Roberts University (ORU) - Seeds Of Deceit

    Oral Roberts University gaudy Bible college campus

    Oral Roberts took part of his ill-gotten gains and built a gaudy Bible college campus that he vainly named "Oral Roberts University" (despite strong objections from his Christian contributors). Everything about ORU architecture was designed to demonstrate "I'm worth more than you" wealth accumulation, and wasteful conspicuous consumption.

    If the upstream Arkansas river earthen dam fails (like the New Orleans levees did in 2005) the entire poorly-designed ORU campus will be flooded.

    The space-ship-looking ORU centerpiece "Prayer Tower" is topped with a noisy large natural gas flare that burns 24 / 365. It lights the night for several miles away. It is adjusted to burn bright yellow (starved for oxygen), which expensively generates a large amount of air-pollutant particulates, and toxic carbon monoxide. Is this God's will?

    Oral said that God inspired the ORU buildings, but the entire gaudy campus is built in total disharmony with God's Laws of Nature.

    There are no ORU buildings that use "green" technology, free sunshine or wind energy. They are very inefficient. They burn huge amounts of natural gas.

    There are triangle-shaped buildings on the ORU campus, with high external surface area and thousand of square feet of useless interior space in the corners.

    Some buildings were covered with expensive gold glass - held in place with hundreds of pounds of custom-gold-plated screws.

    A primary ORU facility was a duplicate of the NBC Burbank television broadcast studio, where Oral and Richard Roberts produced their deceptive wealth-accumulation prosperity theology television broadcasts to the faithful gullible. Oral spared no expense to produce the highest-quality broadcasts for his seed-faith greedy wealth-accumulation message. A good video can make rational people believe the irrational. Roberts' videos were always NBC-broadcast top quality.

    Oral broadcast that a 700-foot-tall Jesus had commanded him to build the three tallest buildings on the campus, so the faithful should send Oral even more money than ever before (to increase his real estate net worth). You just can't argue with 700-foot-tall Jesus. (snicker)

    There was a controversy about the tallest ORU building, since it is in the landing path for the local airport. Pilots objected, but Oral won political approval.

    The shells for these three buildings were constructed but never occupied. The risky miracle that Oral expected never happened, and the speculative buildings had to be sold under the inept mismanagement of Oral's extremely-corrupt son Richard. This pretty much proved that Oral's 700-foot Jesus story was a deceptive self-serving lie (as were many of his anti-Jesus words and methods).

    After the 700-foot-Jesus false-prophet failure, Oral Roberts' divine visions became increasingly ridiculous. He went quite insane, and his Board of Regents appointed his son Richard as the President of Oral Roberts University.

    Richard Roberts led a decadent life of immoral luxury, flying his family around frivolously in the expensive corporate jet, and lying about excessive unauthorized expenses, until a lawsuit exposing the scandal was filed in 2007.

    Richard was married, divorced and remarried. I Timothy 3 and Titus 1:5-9 demands that a church leader be "the husband of one wife." If you don't have your own house in order, you clearly have no right to tell others how to lead their lives (unless you are preaching to complete fools).

     

    Richard Roberts ORU lawsuit, scandal, vote of no confidence, and resignation

    In October 2007, three former professors filed a lawsuit claiming to have been wrongfully terminated. They alleged Richard Roberts misused university assets and illegally ordered the tax-exempt university to illegally make Republican political contributions. Other allegations included claims he used university funds to pay for his daughter's trip to The Bahamas by providing the university jet and billing other costs to the school. He maintained a stable of horses on campus and at university expense for the exclusive use of his children. Richard regularly summoned university and ministry staff to the Roberts house to do his daughters' homework. Richard and his second wife Lindsay remodeled their house at university expense 11 times in 14 years. Richard allowed the university to be billed both for damage done by his daughters to university-owned cars. He acquired a red Mercedes-Benz convertible and a white Lexus SUV for his wife Lindsay through ministry donors.

    Three days after filing the original lawsuit, the plaintiffs filed an amended version that Richard fired the university's financial comptroller (who had been employed by ORU for 26 years) and "witnesses have reported voluminous materials and documents were shredded and destroyed, constituting spoliation of evidence." The tenured faculty of Oral Roberts University gave Richard a nearly-unanimous vote of "no confidence" in Roberts. Richard resigned as ORU President, but continues to broadcast his father's anti-Jesus seed-faith greedy wealth-accumulation message to the gullible to this day.

     

    People who refuse to study history condemn themselves to forever repeat its worst mistakes

    The 1960 Academy Award winning movie "Elmer Gantry" was a story about fraudulent evangelists (similar to Oral Roberts). A more-telling 1972 movie about the TRUE confession of "Marjoe Gortner" exposed the manipulative techniques used by sinister entrepreneurial evangelists to selfishly extract money from simple-minded believers - who unskeptically accept whatever a charismatic evangelist preaches.

    Oral Roberts' Seed Faith anti-Jesus wealth accumulation methods have exploded into a huge growth-oriented profitable tax-exempt business - with many practitioners and millions of entranced followers.

    Prosperity Theology is not just for church goers any more - it is becoming mainstream secular marketing practice, just like Christmas materialistic consumerism training of greedy children.

    The religious devotion to charismatic dishonest evangelists is much like the very-real state of medical hypnosis. The Greek word "hypnos" (hupnos) appears multiple times in the New Testament. Biblical hypnos references are always associated with impossible miracles, mystical visions, and life-changing teaching techniques. Modern medical science has a much-better understanding about the physiology and psychology of how evangelists, faith-healers, and medical doctors use hypnosis. Mental manipulation with hypnosis is based on well-understood psychosomatic placebo effects. Hypnos is ancient, real, and it does work well on many highly-suggestible susceptible subjects - including some with high IQ's.

    Even though Oral and Richard Roberts have been exposed as fraudulent egotistical self-serving hypnotic deceivers, there are millions of good people still being duped by modern large-scale prosperity theology televangelists (with Rolex watches).

    Matthew 23:25 "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees (self-appointed religious leaders), hypocrites! For ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of EXTORTION and EXCESS."

    Jesus warned His followers that deceivers (like many modern televangelist) would surely come - Matthew 24:24 "There shall arise false Christs (Messiahs), and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, THEY SHALL DECEIVE THE VERY ELECT." (The outrageous criminal Charles Manson even claimed to be Jesus Christ.)

    The Greek word "profitis" means "foreteller" - One who claims to have been contacted by the supernatural or the divine God, and serves as an intermediary with less-knowledgable moral humans. Jesus' reference to "false prophets" includes deceptive evangelists who violate the foundational principles that Jesus taught. Modern false prophets are easy to identify by people who have read and retained the simple words of love and equality attributed to Jesus and His faithful followers.

    Romans 16:17-18: "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple." False prophets are identified by the way they live and treat others, NOT by their hypocritical or misleading words.

    It is not hard to identify the anti-Jesus "fair speech" dishonest deceivers who call upon the name of Jesus Christ (or other religious leaders). Just read the basic essential teachings like the Sermon On The Mount, and avoid those greedy evangelists who arrogantly violate what Jesus taught, and how early Christians lived.

    True followers of Jesus' teachings will not exploit your emotions or bank account. Jesus' disciples and the Apostle Paul worked common (like fishing and tent making) to earn their daily bread, and THEN they supported the early Christian community out of their dedication to Jesus' first principles. Be very skeptical of any wealth false prophet who asks you for money. Most early Christians died in poverty, persecuted to death for their faith.

    I love many of the teachings attributed to Jesus in the New Testament. The world would be a much better place if there were only a few people who lived the Sermon on the Mount. I am not so arrogant to claim to be a Christian who lives as Jesus taught. Hypocrites who claim to be Christians do a great disservice to the faith of our fathers.

    Simple minds that are hopelessly addicted to divisive self-serving anti-Jesus Prosperity Theology are a minority of the population. If the problem had died with Oral Roberts, it would not be an issue today, BUT Oral Roberts left a lasting legacy of habitual lying and dishonest false-prophet deception on some key students who attended ORU.

     

    Since the Tea Party is controlled by big-oil-owned radical right-wing religious fundamentalist fanatics, we provide detailed documentation about their leaders: Crackpot ORU-Educated Michele Bachmann and "Mad Cowboy Disease" Rick Perry. They emerged as two major radical-right influences in the imminent collapse of the American government and economy.

    Michele Bachman - The Fraudulent Con Man's Anti-Jesus Lasting Legacy

    Oral Roberts wanted to train an army of young people to support his successful Oklahoma Bible-belt money-making televangelism enterprise. ORU formed an experimental, unaccredited School of Law. Oral's goal was to train Bible-thumping fanatical fundamentalists to infiltrate government and impose his own brand of greedy Seed Faith Christianity as an America legal requirement.

    The ORU School of Law (which underwent several name changes) started its first inaugural class in 1979, including Michele Bachman, who fulfilled Oral's dream and became an outspoken radical member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

    The Rolling Stone article about Michele's Holy War Inquisition is hilarious

    Michelle Bachmann Bible Crusader Bachmann studied under John Eidsmoe, who she described as "one of the professors who had a great influence on me." Bachmann was John's research assistant on the 1987 book Christianity and the Constitution, which falsely argued that the United States was founded as a Christian theocracy, and that it should become one again, with strong support from Oral Roberts.

    People who often tell this lie about America's founding fathers are called "Christian revisionists." They want to rewrite public-school text books the way that they would like it to be. "Christian" Confederate-state Tea Party revisionists are trying to change history books to say they their ghastly Civil War position was about states rights (instead of slavery).

    Laughable Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin sometimes do not know as much as a fifth grader about American history.

    History clearly documents that America's founding fathers made it very clear that government should NOT endorse any particular religion."It is not the legitimate province of the legislature to determine what religion is true or what false."

    John Eidsmoe, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Santorum like to quote John Adams (George Washington's V.P. and the "big government" second president of the U.S.): "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

    Their FALSE misleading implication by quoting John Adams is that when Adams referred to "religious people" he meant "Christians" and that by extension, John Adams was a Christian. Nothing could be further from the truth. John Adams absolutely was NOT in any way a Christian.

     

    The following is NOT meant in any way to influence your personal religious beliefs - It is merely factual documentation about the feelings of our founding fathers.

    John Adams was educated at Harvard where Deism was expanding and many Boston churches were converting to Unitarianism. John Adams explicitly rejected many fundamental doctrines of Christianity, such as the Holy Trinity and the miracles and divinity of Jesus. Adams recognized the endless bloody abuses that Christian bigotry had caused, but John Adams did believe that religion could be a force for good in individual lives and a worthwhile influence for society at large. For over three thousand years of written history, powerful political leaders have exploited the control that religion gives them over the gullible mediocre minds. This principle is still true in Iowa USA today.

    John Adams was a Unitarian Deist, NOT a Bible-believing fundamentalist Christian.

    Founding fathers George Washington and John Adams wrote the 1796 Treaty of Tripoli with Muslims which clearly states: "As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion, - as it has in itself no character of enmity against the (Sharia) laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen (Muslims), - and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan (Islamic) nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries."

    The above text of the Treaty of Tripoli was distributed to all U.S. Senators. It was ratified by 100% of all the Senators that were present. It was one of very few unanimous votes taken by the early U.S. Senate. On the subject of religious tolerance there was no controversy whatsoever. The treaty text clearly documents the Senate's total support of America NOT being founded on Christianity (as Eidsmoe and Bachmann falsely wrote). Subsequent writings of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison after the Treaty of Tripoli also strengthen this strong unanimous view of America's foundation of religious tolerance of all faiths (including Islam). Unlike the Church of England and the supremely-sinister Inquisition, America's foundation begins with diversity of opinion about God, and the First Amendment guarantees Free Speech.

    America's founders felt that religions rely on human
    gullibility about miraculous myths and fantastic fables

    Religous Myths and Fables: Zeus, Poseidon, Kin g Tut, Santa Claus

    Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence that the United States is based on "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" but he also wrote: "Religions are all alike - founded upon fables and mythologies." Sincere reverent belief in God does not imply belief in a particular book written by men, or in a denomination.

    President Jefferson and other founding fathers were Deists with a strong scientific belief in God, the Creator of the Universe. Jefferson agreed with the good moral teachings of the Bible, but NOT in the impossible myths and false fables that it contains, or in the dogmatic dictatorial deceptive doctrines of ethnocentric bigotry that are taught from many pulpits by pious pastors and purveyors of religious persecution.

    When a government becomes intertwined with a particular religion, it justifies inquisitions and murder of innocent people, just because they reject false doctrines of ethnocentric hatred and revenge. This is the example set by historical Rome, Spain, England, and modern day Iran.

    James Madison (fourth president of the United States) wrote: "The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe with blood for centuries."

    The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution emphatically states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion."

    The term "respecting" also implies "banning." Those who wish to ban a particular non-violent non-criminal religious cult, or even atheism, violate the American Constitution.

    Even so, some early American states banned Catholic churches, and pseudo-religious American courts sentenced innocent women to be burned alive as witches for their mythical irrational religious reasons. Burning perceived witches because they disagree with your American religion is obviously in direct violation of "Thou shalt not kill." When "right to life" fanatics kill doctors who perform abortions due to rape or incest, they violate the Ten Commandments, AND American law. Racial / religious violent hate crimes are still common in America today. Should any southern state allow the Confederate flag symbol of slavery to fly on any state property? Some southern churches used to teach that Africans had no soul, and thus could be abused in any way that their owner saw fit.

    When religious bigots say: (1) America should return to its Christian foundation, AND (2) America should return to its Constitutional foundation, they totally contradict themselves. The U.S. Constitution supported slavery. It contradicted many of the teachings of Jesus.

     

    Christian fanatics Oral Roberts, John Eidsmoe, and Michele Bachman knowingly rejected the well-documented TRUTH about America's foundation of religious tolerance. BUT, if you are willing to reject all of history, science, and proven facts (as did Roberts, Eidsmoe and Bachman), then you can easily get many gullible non-learning mediocre-minded simpletons to believe almost anything you preach from your radical televangelism pulpit.

    As a boy, there was no local church or school for Abraham Lincoln to attend. He became a self-educated avid reader. When Lincoln arrived in Washington D.C., he spent endless hours in the Library of Congress (which began with Thomas Jefferson's large personal library).

    After reading the Bible, Lincoln said: "The Bible is not my book, nor Christianity my profession." Like John Adams and many others, Lincoln recognized that mediocre minds need a religious crutch, including many myths and false fables. Iowa Senator James Harlan (whose daughter married Lincoln's son Robert), introduced a Senate Resolution and convinced Lincoln to sign it, which proclaimed "a day for National prayer and humiliation. . . . to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness." Christian bigot John Hagee cited this Resolution in support of Rick Perry's day of fasting and prayer to Jesus, but Abraham Lincoln was in no way a Christian.

    The U.S. motto "In God We Trust" was NOT sanctioned by our founding fathers. Salmon P. Chase, (Treasury Secretary under President Lincoln) suggested that "The trust of our people in God should be declared on our national coins." It was implemented in 1863 - 87 years after Thomas Jefferson's Declaration of Independence. The vast majority of Americans do not trust God enough to follow the fundament teachings of the founders of their own religious denomination (like selling your worldly possessions and giving the money to the poor).

    Obviously, there are atheist American citizens who disagree with the American motto on our coins and buildings, which violates the First Amendment. One strategy of some modern atheists is to give a Bible to their teenage children and say: "Read this and decide for yourself" (as Lincoln did). IF the Bible could sell itself without manipulative evangelists (like Michele Bachmann) hypnotically distorting God's Truth, then there would be no atheists - But the Bible can't, and so there ARE many atheists.

    I am a Deist, not an atheist. I believe that the Bible contains some valuable morality lessons, but I agree with America's Deist founding fathers and Abraham Lincoln in many ways.

    No deceptive evangelist has ever drawn me closer to the one True God. In fact, most moronic evangelists make it more difficult for a rational person to believe their impossible manipulative miraculous mythical tales and fables. The Bible by itself does not bring me closer to God. Silly story lines like Noah's Ark and contradictory "don't kill" versus "do kill witches" make me question the mental competency of anyone who accepts the Bible's irrational flawed logic by blind dumb faith.

    It is NOT evangelists OR the Bible that makes me faithful. It is the scientific study of the unchangeable Perfect Laws of Nature that gives me a Profound Love of the Majestic Creator of the Universe, and makes me a Deist - like many of the world's great scientists, and essentially all of America's founding fathers most certainly were.

    It is in the context of being a Scientific Deist that I find many of Jesus' morality teachings inspirational, but so many of the Bible's self-contradictions are PROOF that it is at-least partially based on lies and exaggerations - written on ancient scrolls by imperfect delusional scribes, who edited the text from one copy to the next, as times and politics changed. We have irrefutable scientific factual proof of that in the Dead Sea Scrolls and other historical sources of Bible texts.

     

    By boldly lying about America's founding fathers being Christians, Eidsmoe and Bachmann
    drew skeptical attention to their manipulative deception, and they begged for the Truth to be told:

    None of America's founding fathers were atheists, but most of them were "DEISTS" (not Christians). Deists believe that God created the universe (as I strongly do). Most Deists believe that Jesus walked the Earth as a moral man (and taught many good things, as I do), but Deists do not necessarily believe that all of the Bible (or what flows from the human pulpit) is infallible, or to be taken literally in all cases. Many early-American founding father Deists REJECTED some of the puritanical fanatical teachings about Christianity, the Holy Trinity, unscientific impossible miracles and myths, the oppressive persecution practices from the Church of England, Inquisition, and some early-American Puritans (witch burnings, etc.).

    Many intelligent scientists (including Ben Franklin, Albert Einstein and myself) are Deists. An open-minded person cannot look through a microscope or telescope without appreciating the majesty beyond mere mortal men that set it all in motion. BUT, an observant scientist can clearly see fanatical self-contradictory hypocrisy that often flows from the pulpits of self-appointed self-serving selfish ethnocentric evangelists and false prophets who vainly abuse the name of Jesus Christ.

    Benjamin Franklin: "primitive Christians thought persecution extremely wrong in the Pagans, but practiced it on one another. The first Protestants of the Church of England blamed persecution in the Romish Church, but practiced it upon the Puritans. They found it wrong in Bishops, but fell into the practice themselves both here (in England) and in New England." . . . "I wish it (religion) were more productive of good works . . . I mean real good works . . . not holy-day keeping, sermon-hearing . . . or making long prayers, filled with flatteries and compliments despised by wise men, and much less capable of pleasing the Deity."

    Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Perry are not the first or last hypocrites to pray such vain pandering prayers to draw public attention to themselves.

    Ben Franklin (the scientific Deist and founding father face on our $100 bill) concluded: "The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason."

    Signing of the U.S. Declaration of Independence

    During the first American Continental Congress January 1776, many states instructed their delegates to resist separation from England. Thomas Paine became known as "the firebrand of the American Revolution." George Washington later said that it was Paine who influenced his own support for the controversial July 4, 1776 Declaration of Independence.

    Was Thomas Paine a Christian? "All the tales of miracles, with which the Old and New Testament are filled, are fit only for impostors to preach and fools to believe." . . . "The Christian religion is a parody on the worship of the Sun, in which they put a man whom they call Christ, in the place of the Sun, and pay him the same adoration which was originally paid to the Sun." . . . "All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit." . . . "Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst."

    George Washington will always be remembered by school children as "the father of America." Washington was a Deist, not a Christian. "Religious controversies are always productive of more acrimony and irreconcilable hatreds than those which spring from any other cause. Of all the animosities which have existed among mankind, those which are caused by the difference of sentiments in religion appear to be the most inveterate and distressing, and ought most to be depreciated. I was in hopes that the enlightened and liberal policy, which has marked the present age, would at least have reconciled Christians of every denomination so far that we should never again see the religious disputes carried to such a pitch as to endanger the peace of society."

    John Adams was the second President of USA: "As I understand the Christian religion, it was, and is, a revelation. But how has it happened that millions of fables, tales, legends, have been blended with both Jewish and Christian revelation that have made them the most bloody religion that ever existed?" . . . "The divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for absurdity. Nowhere in the Gospels do we find a precept for Creeds, Confessions, Oaths, Doctrines, and whole cartloads of other foolish trumpery that we find in Christianity."

    Ethan Allen was an American Revolutionary War patriot. "I have generally been denominated a Deist, the reality of which I never disputed, being conscious I am no Christian." . . . "In those parts of the world where learning and science have prevailed, miracles have ceased; but in those parts of it as are barbarous and ignorant, miracles are still in vogue."

    Thomas Jefferson was an educated scientist, architect, land owner, gentleman farmer, expert statesman, international ambassador, and third President of the USA. Jefferson wrote the Virginia Statue for Religious Freedom, and the 1776 Declaration of Independence, which is based on "the laws of nature and of nature's God."

    Jefferson was a Deist. "And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with all this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this the most venerated reformer of human errors."

    Jefferson believed that Jesus was a good morality teacher, but that organized Christian dogma was full of impossible miraculous lies and divisive deception - used to justify the church's inhumane deadly behaviors (like the Inquisition and burning witches). Jefferson took his razor and removed all of the impossible miracle scriptures in the New Testament, and published what is known as "The Jefferson Bible - The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth" (a much-smaller more-believable book). In 1904, Congress printed the Jefferson Bible, and presented it to every new member of Congress for many years. (The Jefferson Bible is available online for free today in searchable electronic form - We recommend it to you. You do not have to be a Christian to appreciate its believable morality teachings. It does NOT say that Jesus is the only path to God.)

    John Hancock (first signer of Jefferson's Declaration of Independence) was an open-minded Deist: "let us humbly commit our righteous cause to the great Lord of the Universe, who loveth righteousness and hateth iniquity. And having secured the approbation of our hearts by a faithful and unwearied discharge of our duty to our country, let us joyfully leave our concerns in the hands of Him who raiseth up and pulleth down the empires and kingdoms of the world as He pleases; and with cheerful submission to His sovereign will."

    The fourth President of USA was James Madison - another Deist from Virginia. He was an effective statesman who governed well with reasoning and logic. By the end of his presidency he had produced an "era of good feeling." Madison was "the father of the Constitution", which does not even mention God. "Experience witnesseth that ecclesiastical establishments, instead of maintaining the purity and efficacy of religion, have had a contrary operation. During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What has been its fruits? More or less, in all places, pride and indolence in the clergy; ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution."

    To claim that America's founding fathers were Christians (or that Jesus wants you to accumulate great oppressive wealth) is absolute manipulative bigoted balderdash - believed only by gullible, barbarous, illiterate ignorant idiots (and submissive, suggestible Tea Party fools)

    Do you honestly think that any self-righteous anti-Jesus Christians will read these words and pay any attention to the well-documented Truth? NO!

    "People hear what they want to hear and disregard the rest" - Lie La Lie, Simon and Garfunkel

    "Religion is the smile on a dog" - Eddie Brickell (New Bohemians and Paul Simon's wife)

    Albert Einstein had a favorite joke for non-learning, bigoted, hypocritical,
    deceptive, revisionist fools like
    John Eidsmoe and Michele Bachmann:
    "If the facts don't match the theory - change the facts."
    - chuckle

     

    Two thirds of Americans now claim some affiliation with Christianity, but they are NOT the 100% unanimous representation of the USA. In fact, American Christians seem to largely reject the primary principles of Jesus' teachings. Obvious ongoing examples include: the love of money, capitalistic accumulation of wealth, covetous conspicuous consumption, persecution and oppression of the poor.

    Consider this often-violated commandment: Exodus 20:4
    "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image,
    or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven"

    Jesus Christ On The Cross

    In Exodus 20:13 (and elsewhere) the law of Moses says clearly and unambiguously "Thou Shalt NOT Kill" with absolutely NO exceptions for any reason at all. BUT, Moses himself did NOT believe what he had laboriously carved into The Ten Commandments stone tablets. When Moses came down from the mount, he saw God's chosen people (that Moses had delivered out of Egypt) had made a graven image and made sacrifices to it. They ate, drank and made merry while dancing naked before their man-made golden idol.

    In Exodus 32: 27-28 Moses commanded: "Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour. And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men", which was clearly a hypocritical violation of Moses' own law. Those who write the laws from man or God often break them.

     

    Here is one of Jesus' most-important teachings that is rejected by almost all modern self-proclaimed "Bible believing" Christians. Matthew 6:5-10 (The Sermon On The Mount): "And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven."

    Clearly, you can NOT be a Bible-believing Christian follower of Jesus and also wear a cross or pray in public - Reject those hypocrites that do

    People who stand beneath a cross and pray pandering political prayers in public are anti-Bible, even if they use Jesus Christ's name in vain

    Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain said that Michele Bachmann's frequent public prayer "sounds like the ultimate pander." We agree with he.

    The word "pander" means: (1) "a pimp, who procures customers for a prostitute, or lures people into prostitution for personal profit" (a crime in most states), or (2) "unscrupulous catering to special interests without any personal principles, such as a politician who says one thing to one group, and the opposite to another, unscrupulously-and-hypocritically preaching to what each one wants to hear, to selfishly win their votes and financial support."

    There is an awful lot of anti-Jesus religious pandering in American Tea Party Terrorist politics today

    The fact that public prayer pandering is a well-tolerated common practice does NOT mean that it is correct Christianity

    Michele Bachmann strongly supports vocal prayer pandering in publically-funded schools. Who would she have determine what to pray? (Herself?)

    If you believe that Christians should ever pray in public, then YOU reject the well-documented primary New Testament TRUTH, in favor of man-made false-prophet anti-Jesus traditions. How many self-proclaimed Christians pay any attention at all to the essential Sermon On The Mount? Do they not know how to read the book that they carry around? Do they only read what they are told, and not the context of the message? Do they pray the Lord's Prayer out loud in public, in direct contradiction to what Jesus taught? Which part of "enter your closet and shut the door" can they not understand? Even in King James English, these simple words are easy to clearly understand by literate people, as they were intended to be. If you reject the fundamental teachings of Jesus DO NOT CLAIM TO BE A CHRISTIAN.

    Jesus taught true Christians to ONLY pray in a closet where no one could see them. The only prayer that has any meaning is "Thy will be done." It is NOT a prayer for God to change His mind. God is NOT capricious or arbitrarily influenced by prayers or the unstable politics du jour. Unlike the U.S. Constitution, no modern human judge can reverse the everlasting unwavering Truth. The timeless Creator of the Universe is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

    "Thy will be done" is a prayer to align the one who prays in their closed closet with God's timeless will, which was preordained at the beginning of Creation. All other prayers are selfish vanity. Oral Roberts taught his followers to pray on worldwide television and ask for great wealth, expecting all prayers for miracles to be answered, regardless of what they were for. "God Bless America" is a public prayer request for God to endorse every selfish ethnocentric bigoted evil thing that we do. What could be more anti-Jesus than that?

    Janice Joplin's song was a parody of Oral Roberts "Expect A Miracle" message: "Oh Lord won't you buy me a Mercedes-Benz?" It worked for the Roberts family - Why not for you?

     

    Faith Of Our (Deist) Fathers

    Misplaced faith in the impossible, unscientific, revisionist lies and hatred (taught by those who distort the Truth for their own personal gain) is destructive to society.

    Faith in Truth, Righteousness, and a Virtuous Life is essential to survival, productivity, and shared national prosperity

    The word "faith" appears throughout the New Testament - for example Hebrews 11:
    "faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report."

    1800's American Hymn
    "Faith Of Our Fathers, we will love - Both friend and foe in all our strife,
    And preach thee, too, as love knows how, By kindly words and virtuous life
    Faith Of Our Fathers - Holy Faith, We will be true to thee till death"

    Without faith in a compelling vision of the future, the people will perish

    Faith in the best of human potential is wonderfully motivational, BUT

    Faith in self-serving false prophets and corrupt government is deep dark evil

     

    The Boston Tea Party and The American Revolution were ANTI-CHRISTIAN Historical Events

    Violent Bloody Revolutionary Killing Violates MANY Old and New Testament Religious Scriptures:

    Romans 13:9-10: "Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if
    there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
    Love worketh no ill to his neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law."

    Moses' Law - Exodus 20:13: "Thou Shalt Not Kill" We strongly agree, (except for irrefutable mass murderers).

    The Old Testament does mention several exceptions to Thou Shalt Not Kill, including Deuteronomy 18:10:
    "There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth
    divination, or an observer of times
    (astrology), or an enchanter, or a witch" Exodus 22:18 "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live",
    which explains the Puritan Salem witch burnings (that our founding-father Deists abhorred), but it does not explain why 2010
    Tea Party "Christians" supported the habitual liar, mentally-unstable, self-proclaimed WITCH Christine O'Donnell. (snicker)
    Have you ever met UNGODLY superstitious "Christians" who read their horoscope to influence any decision?

    Hebrews and Christians must not allow witches, astrology observers, or rebels among you (if you believe the Bible).

    1 Samuel 15:23 "For rebellion as is the sin of witchcraft" - i.e., American Revolutionaries should not have been allowed to live

    The Boston Tea Party was about British Stamp Act increased taxes without American representation.
    The Hebrew Pharisees tried to trap Jesus into making a statement about not paying taxes. He replied:
    Matthew 22:21 "Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's" - Tax rebellion is anti-Christian

    Jesus taught His disciples to obey the evil hypocritical authorities above them, but do not do what they do. Matthew 23:
    "The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do;
    but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and
    lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works
    they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, And
    love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets"

    - The American Revolution violated this teaching of Jesus - Most U.S. founding fathers did not claim to be Christians

    Since the Pope sits in the seat that Jesus appointed to Peter, by inference, some Catholics believe that Protestants
    are rebellious anti-Christians (who resisted the deadly Inquisition) - All Protestants violate Matthew 23 submission.
    You cannot rebel against any evil existing authority figure and also be a Matthew-23-believing true Christian.
    Do you agree? Which parts of the Bible do you reject?

    I Peter 2: "Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;
    Or unto governors . . . For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
    As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God."

    - America's Deist founding fathers did NOT submit to the King or Church of England, as Jesus and Peter said to do

    Romans 13: "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. . . . Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth
    the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works,
    but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? Do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
    . . . But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; . . . Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for
    conscience sake. For for this cause pay ye tribute (taxes) also: . . . Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom
    tribute is due; custom to who m custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour. Owe no man any thing, but to love
    one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law."

    - America's revolutionary Deists did NOT do what Paul wrote to the Romans - Deists do not claim to be Christians

    The revolutionary Deist signers of the U.S. Declaration of Independence, and the supporters of our Constitution
    risked their lives and fortunes for the anti-Christian principles that they believed in.
    Anyone who claims that our
    founding fathers were all Christians either knows nothing about the Bible and history, OR THEY ARE EVIL LIARS.

    I am absolutely NOT saying that the American Revolution was bad - I owe my life and liberty to our founding fathers.
    The simple point of this section is that the American Revolution was a very-brave anti-Christian thing for them to do.

    No one who signed the U.S. Declaration of Independence could possibly be a submissive Bible-believing Christian !

    No one who signed the U.S. Declaration of Independence could possibly be a submissive Bible-believing Christian !

    No one who signed the U.S. Declaration of Independence could possibly be a Bible-believing Christian !

    No radical revolutionary Tea Party member can possibly be a Bible-believing Christian ! ! !

    Anyone who refutes the above is not familiar with Bible basics, the Tea Party, or the bloody American Revolution

    If you poll American Tea Party members, almost every last one of them will reject the above well-documented Truth

    Their gullible lives are based on blind faith in what they are told by manipulative politicians and preachers, NOT THE PLAIN TRUTH

     

    As a Deist Scientist (like Franklin and Jefferson) I believe that non-violent revolution against hypocrisy is reasonable behavior,
    even though it violates literal interpretation of many Old and New Testament religious principles. Do you agree with me?

    Pervasive pandering pious puritanical political preachers pollute public perception of the documented TRUTH

    The Bible stands in direct contradiction to the bloody American Revolution - You cannot support both !

     

    Anti-Jesus Rick Perry Panders To Poorly-Educated, Gullible, Self-Proclaimed "Christians"
    - Perry Is A Frightening Christocracy Tea-vangelist Corrupt Politician with a proven track record

    Rick Perry: "I am being called" (by God to be President). Michele Bachmann makes a similar claim. At least one of the two candidates must be lying.

    Rick replaced George W. Bush as the governor of oil-corrupted "Christian" conservative Texas (with the big pentagram flag - home of the evil Bush Empire).

    Perry went to Texas A & M (remedial farmer school). Rick wanted to be a veterinarian, but his "C" and "D" grades were too low, so he joined the Air Force.

    Rick Perry George Bush Texas Cowboy Hat Politics and Corruption

    Texans have a term for inept corrupt cowboy politicians: "All hat, no cattle"
    In Perry's case, he is All hair, no brains

    Informed Texas Progressive Democrats call Rick Perry: "The radical fanatical Taliban in a ten-gallon hat."

    Governor Perry (running on Bush's coat tails): "Certainly, you are not going to see a great philosophical
    difference between Rick Perry and George Bush. We share the same type of philosophy."

    "Rick Perry has an ugly side. He never met a lobbyist that he didn't hug.
    He is a George Bush Plutocrat
    (rule by the wealthy), without the intelligence or ethics."
    - Jim Hightower - Twice elected Texas Agriculture Commissioner

    Bush called himself a "compassionate conservative." Perry is most certainly NOT.
    "He (Perry) is as tough and mean and as hard a guy as there's been."
    - Paul Burka, Senior Executive Editor of Texas Monthly magazine

    George W. Bush was known to work both sides of the Texas legislative aisle. Rick Perry said in June, 2011:
    "The political left are never going to like us, so let's stop trying to curry favor with them"
    Rick Perry is a "NO Compromise" Tea Party Terrorist, like the ones who created the 2011 Debt Ceiling Crisis

     

    A 4th-grade New Hampshire boy asked presidential candidate Rick Perry about the age of the Earth. Perry replied:
    "I hear your mom was asking about Evolution. You know, it's a theory that's out there.
    It's got some gaps in it, but
    in Texas we teach both Creationism and Evolution in our public schools,
    because I figured you're smart enough to figure out which one is right."

    In the background, the mother prompts her son: "Ask him why he doesn't believe in science." Perry said:
    "We teach the straight out facts in Texas in our schools. You'll have to pick those up in our classbooks."

    U.S. Supreme Court ruled that teaching Creationism in public schools is UNCONSTITUTIONAL, because it endorses a particular religion
    At Rick Perry's insistence, large numbers of Texas public school science teachers ILLEGALLY endorse and teach fundamentalist Creationism
    Do you want a criminal in the White House mandating national religious education standards that contradict science? The Tea Party does.

    Comedian Lizz Winstead: "The Tea Party does not believe in Evolution, because they are not part of the process." - Chuckle
    Rick Perry's limited mental capacity is more like a chest-pounding adolescent jungle gorilla than an intelligent observant human being.

    Rick Perry shot to the Republican front runner position, before most Republicans got to know him very well.
    It proved what gullible fools they are. With each debate, Perry looks worse and worse, coming off as ignorant and unprepared.
    Republican strategist Bill Krystal wrote of Perry's debate performance: "No front-runner in a presidential field has ever,
    we imagine, had as weak a showing as Rick Perry. It was close to a disqualifying two hours for him."

    John Huntsman suggested that Perry now suffers from "Electile Dysfunction"

    The endless Republican debates are hilarious to watch, as they self destruct and attack each other in public.
    Is one of them going to become the leader of the free world? Can America survive our politics?

     

    People laughed when low-I.Q. cowboys like Ronald Reagan and George Bush ran for president. They both badly damaged our country.

    Voters love simple-minded cowboy politicians who do not talk down to them, regardless of their self-destructive track record.

    Cowboy Reagan Laughable Cowboy Reagan promised to balance the budget, but instead tripled America's debt - raising taxes 11 times. For years, conservatives thought that Reagan was the best American president ever. BUT, today's Tea Party would reject Ronald Reagan altogether.

    When an inept, corrupt politician promises something important, you can almost be assured that the exact opposite will happen - Especially from yahoo cowboys.

    "Mad Cowboy Disease" Rick Perry is even dumber than Cowboy Reagan or illiterate Cowboy Bush, and therefore, Perry was more popular among non-learning fools (for a short time)!

     

     

    Just Plain False Statements and Cowboy "Perry Tales"
    from http://www.iwatchnews.org/2011/08/15/5797/fact-check-perry-exaggerates-statistics-oil-imports-federal-debt

    Rick Perry is clearly a habitual liar cowboy - showing no guilt or repentance for his outright deception, and politically-motivated false exaggerations

     

    As a boy, a teacher asked Rick Perry if he wanted to be a Christian. He replied: "Nope, I want to be an aggie."

    Rick Perry is an extreme foolish flip flopper - Blown back and forth by every bad political wind and bribe in a greedy attempt to gain and maintain power. Although Perry did not want to be a Christian, he profited monetarily by selling Bibles door-to-door to Christians.

    Once a con man discovers that he can make money off of unskeptical gullible people of blind faith, it can influence the rest of his self-serving life.

    Rick's pretend "religion" is a major source of campaign income and political support from non-learning dummies who ignore the truth and live by blind faith.

    Rick supported the possibility of Texas seceding from the USA, but unstable
    flip-flopping Perry changed his opinion when he began considering becoming the U.S. President.

    Rick Perry Texas Most Likely To Secede

     

    Rick Perry, San Antonio Feb. 10, 2010: "I have NEVER been proud to be an American"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8-nEu6Gryk

    In 2011, Perry commented on Obama, saying that "American soldiers need a president they can be proud of"

    Flip flopping Rick Perry's Presidential campaign announcement:
    "First and foremost, I am an incredibly proud America"
    (Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire)

    You are correct Mr. Perry your are truly "incredible" - You have NO credibility at all

     

    In 2011, Rick Perry's worst enemy was own words - published in his November 2010 book "Fed UP!"
    He made it clear that he wants to terminate many federal institutions like Medicare, Social Security, Education, EPA, etc.
    In 2011, Perry's flip flopping presidential campaign staff damage-control spin managers said that
    Perry's November 2010 Fed UP! book did not reflect Rick Perry's August 2011 political opinions

    Karl Rove is living in Republican Hell, hoping that one rational candidate will join the presidential nomination race
    Democrats hope that Tea Party Rick Perry or Michele Bachmann will be the Republican Party nominee - Chuckle


    When Rick could not make it as a low-I.Q. Texas aggie farmer, he went into politics. All of his paychecks have been as a government employee.

    Rick Perry was a long-time Democrat. He was elected to the Texas State House of Representatives. To get elected in a Democrat district, Rick espoused Democrat values, and became the Chair of Al Gore's campaign in Texas.

    Karl Rove is THE Texas Republican King Maker. Rove convinced George W. Bush to run for Texas governor. Rove provided millions of dollars of campaign bribes from Republican big business, and especially from Texas big oil. Rove was the primary advisor to the Bush Administration.

    One devious way to defeat an enemy is to make him your friend. Karl Rove offered millions of dollars to flip-flopping greedy Rick Perry to become a Republican, which immoral, dishonest Perry gladly accepted. It was cheaper for Rove to BUY Perry, than to fight against him. Now, Rick Perry is against almost everything that Democrats stand for. (This is similar to the way Ronald Reagan was a Democrat, until he was corrupted by General Electric and Exxon campaign bribes.)

    Money is often much more important in American politics than morals or convictions. Flip floppers will do anything they can to get elected.

    Founding Father Benjamin Franklin: "He that is of the opinion that money will do everything may well be suspected of doing anything for money"

     

    Rick Perry's money-based motivation for radical flip-flopping political opinion change is clearly big business corruption of his unstable immoral value system.

    The primary factor required to become the governor of bloody-red oil-owned Texas is to NOT be a Democrat. Number two is claiming to be a Christian.

    It is obvious that votes and power are much more important to Rick Perry than mere moral principles, OR the good of the majority of his constituents.

     

    Rick Perry has received more than $102 million in big business bribes for his 3 gubernatorial campaigns - Half of that was for his 2010 reelection campaign alone.

    Perry raised another $50 million for other GOP candidates that he has influenced as the Chair of the Republican Governors Association.

    “In order to have a realistic chance of winning the Republican primary, Perry will need at least $200 to $250 million in the form of direct contributions or independent expenditures on his behalf” - Political Science Professor Mark P. Jones, Texas Rice University. It is clear who Perry is corrupted by, and beholding to.

    According to the Los Angels Times http://articles.latimes.com/2011/aug/16/nation/la-na-0816-perry-donors-20110816 and the "Texans for Public Justice" watchdog,
    Rick Perry received over $37 million from just 150 megadonor individuals, many of whom received much larger Texas state contracts, tax subsidies, and appointments to influential state offices. For example, a $400,000 from Red McCombs resulted in a $25 million a year subsidy for Red's Formula One Race Track to be built near the Austin state capitol.

    Perry's path toward monumental Texas corruption and misuse of taxpayer funds is blatantly obvious to anyone who takes the time to read.

     

    Governor Perry surrounds himself with fanatical religious-cult conservatives who claim to be Christians

    During government meetings, Rick Perry often stops for public prayer -
    Presumably to send the false message that his immoral politics have the support of God

    Rick Perry Public Prayer

     

    Rick has been a total disaster for Texas education. He turned down federal funding, because it would influence the revisionist theology that is taught in Texas schools. Thousand of teachers had to be laid off. Rick denounces all "ungodly secularists" - especially progressive government innovators, science teachers, and school-book authors.

    Rick Perry's unpopular Texas budget cuts include $7.8 billion reduction for public schools, and $1 billion
    for higher education - Perry wants cheap internet training to replace much of the university experience
    http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/politics/texas_legislature/article/Perry-stands-firm-in-calling-for-budget-cuts-1338113.php

    Perry legislation lays off 97,000 teachers and members of school staffs
    - Overcrowded classrooms are to became much worse than before

    Rick explained why he rejected federal education funds, and did not participate in education excellence programs:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7hgCntt6zI The Republican Heritage Foundation supports Governor Perry

    Perry rejected federal funds because he does NOT want Texas children to learn the Earth is more than 6,000 years old,
    or that worldwide climate change (like recent Texas floods, droughts, and fires) are made worse by
    unsustainable man-made carbon emissions (from Texas oil, expanding dirty coal-fired plants, industry, etc.).

    Rick Perry's political plan is based on blind irrational faith in scientifically-impossible miracles.
    Perry teaches that the solution to climate change is prayer. He called for three days of prayer in Texas
    to end their terrible man-made climate-change drought, but God did not answer Perry's futile protestant prayers.
    (If you wonder of God wants you to be a millionaire, buy one lottery ticket, and accept God's answer to you - snicker)

    The Creator of the Universe is not about to violate His Eternal Laws of Nature, to accommodate suicidal Texan behavior.
    God is NOT capricious or arbitrary - God obviously does NOT change His mind in response to Rick Perry's political prayers.
    (A similar non-response happened when Sarah Palin called for prayer to stop the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill.)
    The futile prayers of unrighteous people do NOT trump God's never-changing Laws of Sustainability.

    Jesus taught His disciples to pray "Thy will be done" - It was clearly God's will that man-made climate change damaged Texas.
    It was clearly God's will that man-made abuses in the Gulf of Mexico damaged the surrounding states, and the seafood industry.
    In a non-learning state full of ethnocentric bigots, scientific truth is totally rejected by the myopic mediocre majority.

     

    Rick Perry preaches against big government spending (in other states), but hypocritical Rick Perry
    requested FEMA to pay for 9,000 man-made global-warming forest fires in Texas in 2011.
    His request was denied - Rick had already requested too much federal spending for Texas-made disasters.

     

    "When Mr. Perry presents himself as the candidate who knows how to create jobs, DON'T BELIEVE HIM. His prescriptions
    for job creation would work about as well in practice as his prayer-based attempt to end Texas's crippling drought. . . .
    What Texas shows is that a state offering cheap labor and, less important, weak regulation can attract jobs from other states.
    I believe that the appropriate response to this insight is 'Well, DUH'. The point is that arguing from this experience
    that depressing wages and dismantling regulation in America as a whole would create more jobs
    - which is, whatever Mr. Perry may say, what Perrynomics amounts to in practice -
    involves a fallacy of composition: every state can't lure jobs away from every other state."

    - Paul Krugman - The Texas Unmiracle - The New York Times

    When Rick Perry announced that he was running for president on August 13, 2011, he said "President Obama has been downgrading the hope for a better future for our children." Governor Perry, YOU have BADLY damaged your own state's education system, and now you want to do the same thing to all of America!

    Under Rick Perry, Texas ranks number 49 in verbal SAT scores in the nation (493) and number 46 in average math SAT scores (502), and Perry has the audacity to say that Obama has downgraded the future of our children! This is pure hypocritical Texas Republican Tea Party B.S.

    Carole Keeton Strayhorn (the Texas State Comptroller) said: "Nothing is more important than education. Our state's future tax base and fiscal well-being depend directly on a highly educated work force." Texas' education system is abysmal, due largely to actions taken by Rick Perry (and other anti-education stupid Texas governors like George Bush).

    Under Republican cowboy governors George Bush and Rick Perry, Texas has risen to multiple Number One positions:

    * More minimum-wage non-living-wage jobs without benefits than any other state - 1 / 4 of Texas children have no health care coverage

    * 50th among American states with people over 25 years old without a high school diploma - And budget cuts are making this WORSE!

    * Number one state in the wage gap between the rich and the poor - Good for the top 1% who bribe Perry - Terrible for everyone else

    * The most regressive tax system in the country - NO income tax for the rich - Regressive consumption taxes impact the poor

    * Number One in greenhouse gas Carbon Dioxide Emissions - The oil-owned Tea Party Perry denies the science of man-made climate change

    * More toxic releases from chemical plants and industry than any other state - Extremely poor regulation of environmental regulations

    * Number One in criminal executions (despite hypocritically proclaiming "the sanctity of life")

     

    * Under Rick Perry, Texas formulated plans to build a record 18 obsolete-technology dirty coal-fired power plants
    - In all the world, only the huge nation of China built more new CO2-belchng, climate-changing, deadly coal-fired plants
    - Since Perry falsely preaches that Global Warming Is A Hoax, then there's nothing wrong with unlimited greenhouse gas emissions

    * 49th in individual credit scores - Texans are rapidly going bankrupt under Perry's oppressive low-wage policies

    * Number 2 in the nation with about 70,000 teen pregnancies per year

    * Number 4 with 100,000 poorly-educated Texans living with HIV / AIDS diagnosis

    * Under Rick Perry, Texas reduced per-student public school spending to 47th in the USA - And It Shows In Texan Stupidity!
    - Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (R) asked Rick Perry at the December 2011 Huckabee Forum: "If a state continually failed its parents and children through inadequate education, (as Texas has clearly done) does the federal government have an obligation to intervene on the education of these children?" Perry's emphatic answer was "NO!"
    - Evil Rick Perry wants to end ALL federal education funding, including Pell grants, school breakfast-and-lunch programs, and the G.I. bill

    * 43rd in high school graduation rate - Perry policies dismantled Texas' public education system - including science, math & health
    - Perry is satisfied with Texas students who only make "C" and "D" grades - like he did at remedial-education Texas A & M

    * Among the worst SAT college entrance exam scores in the nation - Higher education is NOT part of Perry's low-wage poverty plan

    * 41st in workers represented by collective bargaining unions - Texas is a declining plutocracy of mostly-poor non-learning people

    * 4th in children living in poverty - Can you see how all of these attributes are linked together under Tea Party Republican goals?

    Do YOU want to impose these outrageous ineffective Texas policies on all of America? Most Tea Party Dummies Did (until Rick Perry's bubble burst)

    What will you do to keep Tea Party destructive fools like Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, and Herman Cain out of public office in the future?

    Will you spread the truth to others, or ignore it?

     

    Rick Perry's principle philosophy in his own words, in a nutshell: "You know, they're telling us which cars to buy and which light bulbs to use now. But they ought not be telling us whether we can go to Baptist, Methodist, whichever one . . . But it is quite different and, I would say, extreme, to say that our laws should not be inspired and informed by the views of the faithful. Freedom of religion is not to be confused with freedom from religion."

    The implication is that Texans (and all of America) should NOT be allowed freedom From religion: Select Baptist or Methodist, those are your options.

    Rick attended church at John Hagee's influential Texas wealth-accumulation Cornerstone Church. Hagee is a totally-out-of-control morbidly-obese bigot with a huge appetite for food, riches, and political power. Hagee strongly endorses Perry for U.S. President, along with many other wealth-accumulation Prosperity Theology evangelists.

    In 2008, John Hagee offered to endorse John McCain, but McCain turned him away, since Hagee preaches total intolerance of diversity, and that the Catholic Church is "The Whore Of Babylon" (Revelation 17).

    Many bigoted ethnocentric televangelists believe that members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS / Mormons) are NOT Christians, so they are spend large sums of political-corruption money to defeat popular frontrunner Mitt Romney in 2012, as they did in 2008.

    Right-wing Republican extremists like Rush Limbaugh, Dick Armey, Steve Forbes, FreedomWorks, Rupert Murdoch's Fox News, and the Koch brothers source of Tea Party funding were very offended when Mitt said that scientific evidence shows that Earth's average temperature has increased, and that man-made greenhouse gas emission need to be reduced, since they are bringing about detrimental changes in Earth's climate. The oil-corrupted Republicans joined the televangelists to defeat Mitt, and support radical Rick Perry. No state has been more dependent on federal stimulus funds than Rick Perry's Texas, yet he says America should stop the very bailouts that kept Texas from going totally bankrupt in 2010. Supreme Hypocrisy!

    Rick Perry enthusiastically invites oil corruption and John Hagee's endorsement

    Rick agrees with Hagee's anti-Jesus narrow intolerant view of how Christians should live, and what all students in Texas (and elsewhere) should be taught.

    Perry works tirelessly to indoctrinate all Texas public school students in his narrow-minded non-learning Christocracy. He wants Texas public school educators to essentially become Sunday School teachers. In pursuing his goal to keep students ignorant of earth sciences and vital health issues (like HIV / AIDS and pregnancy prevention education), Perry appointed Gail Lowe (Creationist and staunch science denier) to head the Texas Board of Education. Rick Perry's Texas is now number two in the nation with about 70,000 teen pregnancies per year, and number four with 100,000 living with HIV / AIDS diagnosis. Gail Lowe's intransigent anti-science position was so offensive to Texans that the state senate rejected her re-appointment by Perry in 2011. Rick Perry has become too stupid even for Texans! The ONLY reason he was elected to governor three times was the big bribes provided by Texas big oil and big business.

     

    Perry's Pervasive Plan for Permanent Poverty

    Rick Perry strongly endorsed Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's attack on labor unions (that help fund Democrat campaigns). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_refhbHDhGQ

    The average worker in a so called "right to work" state makes about $5,333 a year less than workers in other states ($30,167 compared to $35,500). Such union-destroying laws would be better called "right to work for less." Rick Perry encourages companies like Boeing to move their manufacturing to right to work for less states.

    In his 10 years as governor, Rick Perry has created more minimum-wage jobs (550,000) than all other states combined. Perry is a moderate on the enforcement of illegal alien laws. Many Texas jobs are held by illegal aliens (who lower the labor costs for Republican business owners). 23 states have lower unemployment rates than Texas. Texas unemployment is now rising faster than most other states. Texas has the highest proportion of uninsured people in America (25.1%), and Rick Perry wants to totally opt out of federal Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Texas has the fourth-worst budget deficit in USA ($ 9 billion) - The direct result of Perry's ten years of Conservative Republican destruction of his state's economy. Perry preaches that the federal government should learn how to govern from his conservative Texas - Total Lone Star State BULLSHIT!

    Perry preaches against big government, but with Rick as governor, the number of Texas state employees has grown 18% - The opposite of his campaign speeches.

    Texas has no progressive income tax. Texas sales and excise taxes are extremely regressive - hurting minimum-wage workers much more than big oil men making over a million dollars a year with zero state income tax. In order to keep taxes low for millionaires, Perry is laying off policemen, firefighters, nurses, and school teachers - Particularly science teachers who disagree with his terrible dishonest unconstitutional Creationist theology, and honest geoscientist who point out what a totally stupid fool Rick Perry really is.

    Texas student math and science test scores are among the lowest nationally AND internationally for industrialized nations. High-tech businesses (like Texas Instruments) are clamoring for creative problem-solving engineers and scientists. The demand for math and science skills is much higher than the supply from declining public schools. The quantity and quality of American public school science classes is abysmal. AND, Rick Perry is on a suicidal religious crusade to LOWER SCIENCE SKILLS ACROSS TEXAS.

    Gail Lowe rejects the science of Global Warming and Climate Change (which is a prerequisite to get Koch brother's Tea Party funding). Lowe will not tolerate books in public school libraries that disagree with her radical anti-science theology. Perry and Lowe believe that every word in the Bible is divine and must be taken literally (despite endless self-contradictions). They want all Texas students to be taught that the universe is 6,000 years old, dinosaurs were on Noah's ark, and men can live in the belly of a fish, but like Rick Perry, Gail Lowe ignores Jesus' teachings that Christians should never pray in public, accumulate great wealth, or that the Book of Acts Christians held all things in common.

    Texas public school teachers are now being trained by "religious scholars" (who reject science that proves them wrong) on how to implement Perry's state law that mandates the study of Christian scriptures in high school classrooms. These false scholars boldly reject the science of geology. They teach students that climate change is a hoax. Some Texas "science" teachers even tell their students that Man on the Moon was an impossible hoax (although they rely heavily on communication satellites for televangelism, and computing technology from the space program science that they reject - chuckle). NASA Mission Control is in Houston Texas, but some "Christian" Texas school teachers reject the obvious scientific Truth, like NASA's warnings about man-made climate change catastrophe!

    Do religious bigots still want to believe that the Sun rotates around the Earth, and the Genesis account that the Earth was created BEFORE the Sun and stars? Bigots believe that they are correct in all things, and THEY are the center of the universe, which was created for them to selfishly exploit. As in the days of the Christian Inquisition and Hitler's Christian Nazi's, they are willing to persecute, torture, and kill those who disagree with their incorrect perverse view of religion.

    If Rick Perry's followers would secede from the United States, America's I.Q. would significantly increase, and the regressive era of stupid U.S. Presidents from Texas would end.

    Rick Perry wrote in "Fed UP!" that science is "all one contrived phony mess that is falling apart under its own weight."

    Do you agree with Rick Perry's bigoted Texan ethnocentric religious anti-science stupidity? I MOST-CERTAINLY DO NOT !

    As a scientific Deist, I believe that The Handbook Of Chemistry and Physics has as much information about how to live a sustainable life in harmony with Nature, as does the Bible.

    "It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so." - Mark Twain

    It is alright to admit that you do not know how to control gravity - Perhaps scientists will learn how one day (who knows).
    BUT, if you claim that you know how to control gravity, and you arrogantly jump off of a tall building to prove your point,
    it may be hazardous to your health (and those below you).
    (chuckle)

    Here is one of the funniest things about Rick Perry's bigoted Texas: Rick Perry often stated for sure that the Earth is 6,000 years old
    - The Bible Told Him So, BUT, It just ain't so. Texas is following Rick to the top of the building - ready to jump off on his command.
    Will Perry next ask Texan "Christians" to drink his cyanide-laced grape Flavor Aid (as Jim Jones did all of his Christian fanatic fools)?
    Rick Perry's ethnocentric suicidal bigoted behavior is not without modern precedent. How quickly fools forget lessons from the past.

     

    As a presidential candidate, flip flopping Rick Perry was asked about the age of the Earth. He said: "How old do I think the Earth is?
    I have no idea - it's pretty old. It goes back a long way - I'm not sure anyone knows really completely how old it is."

    Rick's spin doctors are slowly getting through his unevolved thick skull - smile

     

    Rick Perry does NOT want any Texas public school student to study earth sciences, the fossil record (as in the Grand Canyon), or geology,
    since they establish scientifically that the Earth is Billions of years old.

    Here is the hilarious self contradiction: The wealth of Texas came from the accident that it had a large amount of very-profitable oil. Houston is still considered "The Oil Capital of the World", with more big-oil HQ's than anywhere else. The air pollution in Texas is the worst in the United States, because of their huge oil refineries (in Texas City, etc.). Rick doesn't give a flip about Texas air quality, and it shows in Texas' high health care costs.

    Rick wants America to become MORE addicted to unhealthy big oil - The Koch brothers pay big bribes to make Tea Partiers say so

    YOU CANNOT FIND OIL UNLESS YOU HAVE EXPERT GEOLOGISTS, who know with scientific certainty that the Earth is billions of years old. It takes a million years for oil to form from the lipids in tiny dead animal bodies. Every petroleum geologist knows that oil can NOT form in only 6,000 years. Perry's plan for Texas is a total self-contradiction. TEXAS OIL COMPANIES MUST HAVE EXPERT GEOLOGISTS. They may be atheists, agnostics, or Deists. They may attend Christian churches. BUT THEY MUST BE EARTH SCIENTISTS.

    The evil Koch brothers provide funds for Tea Party fools who deny scientific truth, BUT, the Koch brothers could not produce any oil without expert geologists, who know science, and the multi-billion-year age of the Earth.

    Rick Perry does NOT want any Texas public school students to know the truth about geology. Rick Perry (and the Bush dynasty) have made Texas' anti-Jesus right-wing conservative "Christianity" the laughing stock of the more-intelligent problem-solving scientists and engineers around the world.

    The very sad thing is that the 2 / 3 of gullible Americans who falsely claim to be "Christians" might like to elect Perry the next President of the United States.

     

    I have two close relatives who teach public school in Texas. Both are good moral practicing Christians. One teaches science. They do NOT believe that every word in the Bible is flawless and literally true. (They have told me that IF the Song of Solomon is taken literally, that would be one very-strange woman!)

    Both of these relatives hope that Rick Perry will concentrate full time on running for President. They don't want him to BE President; they just want him to resign as governor, and STOP screwing up Texas education to the point of irrational international ridicule.

     

    Jesus taught his followers to never pray in public. God is not capricious or arbitrary. God is never swayed by selfish anti-Jesus wealth-accumulation prayers. The Laws of Nature never change. There is NO reliable scientific evidence that ANY divine-intervention "miracles" have ever happened, since the moment when space and time began.

    Things that are perceived as impossible miracles, are usually just a lack of understanding of science or Nature

    Is child birth a divine-intervention scientific miracle? NO

    Praying for a selfish miracle is the futile ignorance of simpleton fools

    Did God commit adultery with a betrothed woman - to produce a Virgin Birth?

    Matthew 1 and Luke 3 give two contradictory genealogies for Joseph. They do NOT agree about who the father of Joseph was. If Joseph was not the biological Father of Jesus, what does it matter anyway? In the fourth century, Eusebius wrote in his History of the Church, "each believer has been only too eager to dilate at length on these passages." Believers are instructed to ignore obvious self-contradictions, but also irrationally believe that the miracles in the Bible are the flawless inspired Word of God. PURE HOOEY! if there is even only one self-evident flaw in the Bible, then it is fair to be skeptical about its impossible miracles.

    We are asked to believe that Methuselah lived 969 years. One thing we can say with absolute scientific certainty is that the Methuselah described in the Bible was most certainly NOT biologically a modern human.

    Was even one miraculous biblical story a myth, parable, or long-embellished fable? Are all biblical impossible miracles mere myths or LIES? Which ones do you believe? WHY?

    Long after Matthew and Luke were said to have written the contradictory genealogies, the authors of the Greek New Testament borrowed the Virgin Birth idea from previous mythical religions, to elevate Jesus the the level of previous half-human kings.

    Although the Virgin Birth could be described with only a few words, those words would break the biological link between David and Jesus (which was a requirement for the Messiah). The Greek New Testament authors of Matthew and Luke created two major unresolved theological problems: 1) the contradictory genealogies of Joseph were meaningless, and 2) the biological Father of Jesus was not a descendant of David.

    The Gospels of Mark and John did not even mention the critical miracle of the Virgin Birth. This impossible myth was an embellishment that was chronologically added later to the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, based on three-thousand years of Virgin Birth fables and myths about many previous rulers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miraculous_births http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus_myth_hypothesis

    "Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fantasies. To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing. The child mind accepts and believes them, and only through great pain and perhaps tragedy can he be relieved of them." - Hypatia - A brilliant, beautiful, Greek scholar from Alexandria Egypt at the time when the New Testament was being written in ancient Greek. Hypatia was the first notable female scientist and mathematician. She opened new doors for intelligent women. Hypatia was a practical mechanical-device inventor, and also taught philosophy and astronomy, after Eratosthenes had accurately calculated the circumference of the nearly-spherical Earth, and Greeks were building solar-home communities, based on the previous writings of Hippocrates. Hypatia became a martyr for science and reason - killed by violent "Christian" hypocritical bigots.

    Teach your children that miraculous Santa Claus is real, and they will soon learn that YOU ARE A LIAR
    - It takes them longer to discover some of the many flaws and lies in the self-contradictory Holy Bible.

     

    Is gravity a miracle? Gravity is as gravity has always been, and so are all other Laws of Nature (which humans do not fully understand). If God granted a foolish prayer to miraculously suspend gravity so you could fly, the entire universe would explode in an instant. When Oral and Richard Roberts, and Michele Bachmann preach "Pray For A Miracle", they expose not only total rejection of science, but they also infest fools with hope for the impossible. (Do they still believe in Santa Claus also?)

    According to Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount, the only valid prayer is "Thy will be done" - to align the mind of the one who prays with God's eternal will since the beginning of time, and with the unchanging immutable Laws of Nature.

     

    Using Pandering Prayer For Political Manipulation Of the Gullible With Blind Faith In Impossible Miracles

    Mormon racist Glenn Beck, and Pentecostal Sarah Palin, both called for a day of anti-Jesus pathological public prayer pandering - to change God's mind about His obvious judgement of corruption in America. Their call to public prayer is in direct contradiction to Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, but false Christians who reject Jesus' fundamental words think that a day of egotistical, vain, attention-grabbing public prayer is a good idea.

    Rick Perry followed Glenn and Sarah's lead and called for a day of (anti-Sermon-on-the-Mount) public prayer and fasting on August 6, 2011.

    "The Response" was conceived and initiated by the Texas governor. Rick's politics are heavily influenced by the energy industry. It is appropriate that Rick's anti-Jesus day of public prayer political pandering was held in the Reliant Energy stadium in Houston - Dirty Oil Capital of the World with the worst air pollution in America.

    Rick pompously prayed and pandered to multitudes (to deceptively make it seem that he is doing Jesus' will, and to eventually raise future funds and support for his wealth-and-power-accumulation presidential campaign agenda).

    Rick Perry prayed "our heart breaks for America, . . . we see fear in the marketplace, we see anger in the halls of government." Rick prayed for President Barack Obama: "that you would impart your wisdom upon him" (i.e., Jesus show the president that he is wrong, and You have called me to correct Obama's many mistakes).

    When Rick Perry announced for president he said that there was no greater threat to America than President Obama.
    (Perry obviously did not believe, or want, his previous prayer for Obama to be answered).

    Rick is very-much anti-science. He incorrectly believes (as Jesus did) that the human heart is the source of our emotions. The scientific truth is that the heart is nothing but a blood pump. Emotions come from our brain. If you have a heart transplant, your emotions and memories do NOT change.

    The unconstitutional anti-Seromon-On-The-Mount public-prayer and political-power event cost about $1.5 million. It was attended by many Prosperity Theology televangelists from around the country. It was endorsed by: Alfonso Aguilar, Ché Ahn, Laura Zavala Allred, Jacob Aranza, David Barton, Dr. John Benefiel, Rev. A.R. Bernard, Sr., Fred & Wilma Berry, Mike Bickle, Pastor Stephen E. Broden, Dr. Terry Crist, Dr. Joe Ellison, Jr., Bryan Fischer (worse than Rush Limbaugh), Jim Garlow, Rev. Carolyn Stovall Gilbert, Mark Gonzales, Pastor John Hagee, Dr. Jack W. Hayford, Wallace Henley, Pastor Jim Hennesy, Jose & Magda Hermida, Fr. Bob Hogan, Jane Hansen Hoyt, Dr. Khanh Huynh, Dr. Charles L. Jackson, Dr. Cindy Jacobs, Timothy Johnson, Ph.D, Hal Jones, Marian Jordan, Joe & Becky Keenan, Bishop Roy Lee Kossie, Jr., Dr. Richard Land, Tomas J. Lares, Dr. Dennis and Mrs. Ginger Lindsay, Robert Madu, Pastor Gregg Matte, Adam McCain, Nick Nilson, Allan Parker, Ramiro Peña, Dr. Gilbert D. Perez, Mike Richards, Steve Riggle, Vic Schober, Kelly Shackelford, Esq., Kerry Shook, Eddie & Alice Smith, Doug Stringer, Dr. James Swallow, Dr. Paul Tan, C. Peter & Doris Wagner, G.F. Watkins, Nathan & Cherilyn Williams, and self-proclaimed Apostle Willie F. Wooten.

    The Response website designers thought that the above list of pathological maniacs was great front page news, BUT, when the Truth about the documented insanity of many of Rick Perry's staunch supporter fraudulent televangelists hit the news media, www.TheResponseUSA.com removed the above list of crazy cult Christians from their website. You received "Error 404" when you clicked on the link.

    The Response obviously became ASHAMED of the radical religious positions held by most of Rick Perry's benefactors. Examples of some of the radical ideas that they broadcast include irrational religious fanatical statements like: Oprah Winfrey is the anti-Christ, The Pope is the anti-Christ, Catholicism is a godless theology of hate,The Statue Of Liberty is a Demonic Idol In New York Harbour, The Japanese stock market collapsed because the Emperor of Japan had sex with the Sun Goddess, God sent Hitler and his Nazi's to kill the Jews, American gays and feminists invited 9 / 11 terrorism, Gays are Nazis (BTW Nazis were mostly radical right-wing extreme Christian fundamentalists - The swastika was a Christian good luck symbol, before Hitler's Nazi's adopted it and turned the crooked cross into the sign of their intolerant, judgemental, ethnic-cleansing holocaust) Are Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann feminists? Did they cause 9 / 11 ? (chuckle)

    The Response filled less than half of the seats that they paid for (roughly 30,000 in the 71,000-seat Reliant Energy stadium. No other 2011 presidential candidate held such a large political campaign event. Although The Response was supposed to be a 7-hour day of fasting, but there were hypocritical long lines at all of the concession stands. (chuckle)

    Ethnocentric anti-Jesus insanity is pervasive among arrogant false Christians. They deceptively use the name of Jesus Christ in vain, but openly reject His primary teachings.

    Are these the leaders that YOU want to follow? Millions of gullible Americans do. They are part of the massive mediocre majority that elevate crackpots into Congress, and above.

     

    Lawrence O'Donnell about Rick Perry's August 6 Unconstitutional Bigotry Meeting

     

    Rick Perry was the Chair of the Republican Governors Association. Rick specifically invited the governors from the other 49 states to participate - None did - Rick is just way too scary for the mainstream Republican.

    Resources paid for by Texas taxpayers were used to plan and promote Perry's unconstitutional political / religious meeting, where Rick told attendees what to do.

    The American Civil Liberties Union filed open-records requests to determine how much public time and money will be spent on Texas Governor Rick Perry's August 6 prayer event: "We are concerned that Governor Perry is using public office to endorse a sectarian religious event and to advance specific Christian beliefs," - Lisa Graybill, legal director of the Texas ACLU. "We are seeking information on the degree to which state resources have been or will be used for the planning and promotion of this event and for state officials' participation in it." IF the truth can be exposed, Rick Perry may be subject to criminal prosecution (but his own Texas government will likely be intimidated to protect him and hide the truth).

    The Freedom From Religion Foundation sued Bible-banging Rick Perry over his unconstitutional public prayer rally - which was designed to ask for divine political intervention only from Jesus. (FFRF has been very successful with similar constitutional law suits in the past.)

    Can you imagine how much tax-exempt profit Bryan Fischer and Rick Perry hope to make from people who attend this "free" political / religious event?

    Rick said: "It is time to convene the leaders from each of our United States in a day of prayer and fasting, like that described in the book of Joel"

    It is curious to note that the words "pray" and "prayer" obviously do NOT appear anywhere in the entire Old Testament Book of Joel (but Perry's illiterate followers clearly do not read the Bible). Jesus studied the Hebrew scrolls, and was familiar with every word in Joel. It would be against Jesus' Sermon on the Mount to call for a day of political-power-pandering public prayer (in a dirty-energy company's stadium).

    "The Response - a call to prayer for a nation is crisis" (http://TheResponseUSA.com/) specifically references the Old Testament Book of Joel Chapter 2:

    "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains; a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. . . . a flame burneth the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape . . . Before their face the people shall be much pained, all faces shall gather blackness . . . The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble; the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining"

    Welcome to Rick Perry's extremely-negative alarming view of America's immediate future - Rick tells his gullible suggestible illiterate simpleton followers what Joel and Jesus want them to do - Send money and vote for his partisan political pandering Perry.

    Seeking God's Will For Our Country - The Response Self Contradiction

    I believe like Thomas Jefferson that the Bible contains some valuable moral teachings, but I do not believe that every impossible miracle in it can be accepted literally by unscientific blind faith. If you "believe the Bible to be the inspired, the ONLY INFALLIBLE, authoritative Word of God", then everything you need to know about how to live your life is contained in the Bible. If however you reject what the Bible tells you to do, it makes no sense at all to pray for God's guidance, which would in any way contradict what is already documented in the Bible.

     

    What Is A Miracle?

    Your heart beats 3 million times a month - more if your exercise heavily. Is every heartbeat of every human a miracle?

    When you watch a movie or television, you are experiencing 8,640-to-10,800 still-frame pictures per hour
    - many-times-faster than your highest heart rate. Is multi-channel wireless broadcast television a miracle?

    Your complex optical cortex converts still-frame images into the illusion of motion. Predators can instantly perform the mathematical mental calculations required to analyze the rapidly-changing trajectory of fast-moving prey. Predators lunge at where they predict their victim is going to be in a fraction of a second, not where it now is.

    Modern commercial-television and animated Internet advertisers know for certain that when their target audience watches moving images, the mindless majority enter into a suggestible state of hypnosis. We suspend the constraints of reality and allow ourselves to believe that a superman can fly, or that a warp drive can propel humans ten times the speed of light, or that a red convertible will improve our sex life.

    In the Greek New Testament, the word "hypnos" (hupnos) is always associated visions, miracles, and religious teaching - beginning with the Matthew 1 description of the Virgin Birth. Charismatic evangelists of all religions have always exploited the unskeptical hypnotic state of human mental susceptibility.

    Hypnotized suggestible people easily accept impossible-miracle myths

    I've heard poorly-educated fundamentalist Christian evangelists say that "Hypnosis is from the devil" - They have seen stage hypnosis by charlatans, but they clearly have not studied New Testament Greek. All evangelists rely on the hypnotic state to make people believe lies about miracles.

    The original New Testament text makes is very-clear that Jesus and the Apostle Paul used hypnosis to teach about miracles. King James English did not have a word for "hypnos" (which they did not understand), so, "hypnos" was incorrectly translated "sleep", which does not make sense in the context of its usage. Joseph did not believe Mary's Virgin Birth story, until an angel (who looked like a man) put Joseph into a state of hypnos. The KJV mistranslated word "sleep" just does not make any sense at all. The plain Truth about hypnosis usage in teaching about New Testament impossible miracles was lost to those who only read flawed translations of the original Greek scriptures.

    While studying Artificial Intelligence at Stanford University, I had a chance to learn about the modern use of medical hypnosis from what is now called the Stanford Center for Integrative Medicine. Hypnosis is a very-real laboratory-provable mental phenomenon. I can create a four-degree F temperature differential between my right and left hand with nothing but self-hypnotic mental imaging. I can make my two eyes move independently. Ancient gurus in India have honed these skill for thousands of years. In the laboratory, these gurus alter the brain waves and the flow of blood in the brain, and then do seemingly-miraculous one-in-a-million mind-over-matter things. Hypnosis DOES work in repeatable laboratory experiments, but, is hypnosis a spiritual paranormal superhuman mental miracle?

    If YOU believe in a placebo, or an impossible miracle, it CAN accelerate your healing. The lymph nodes of the human immune system have a direct measurable neural connection to the brain. Our mental self-image controls much of our self-healing ability. If you are full of self-destructive stress and hate, your immune system will be compromised, and you are probably going to get sick and heal slowly (if at all). Our world is always stressful - It is how your react to stressful situations, and how you manage internal self-generated stress that really matters. Self-hypnosis (in any of its many diverse forms) can help you manage self-destructive over-reaction stress.

    If you have a positive compelling vision of a superior future, your health is much-more-likely to improve. Self-hypnosis (prayer, meditation, yoga, spiritual discipline, lucid dreaming, etc.) is a part of modern medical science, holistic, Integrative Medicine.

    Throughout human history, most physicians, blood-letting, medicine men and faith healers have relied heavily on hypnotic chants and inert (or even harmful) placebos.

    Hypnosis CAN help bring cancer into remission, through the accelerated release of white blood cells from the lymph nodes
    - This Is A Scientific Fact (which faith healing relies on, without understanding the underlying medical science or limitations).

    Is hypnosis a divine-intervention miracle, or merely part of God's perfect plan for man, since creation?

    The hypnotic state is part of the immutable Laws of Nature, which most humans do not begin to comprehend.

    To some, placebo-effect self-hypnosis is a miraculous divine intervention - To others, hypnosis is satanic, but miracles are real.

    Whatever floats your boat: "Whether you think you can, or you think you can't - you're right." - Henry Ford

    To medical research scientists, hypnosis is just one element of provable real-world laboratory science.

     

    There are trillions of neurons in one human central nervous system. Each one may have hundreds (or a thousand) connections to other nearby neurons (based on a lifetime of experience and learning) - in a complex neural network that represents all of your memories and learned motor control. These neuron connections and firing patterns represent all of your thoughts, character, spirit and soul. They control the good-or-bad way you react to every situation.

    When you are at rest, every one of your neurons fires roughly ten times per second, and then much-more frequently when it is excited. Your brain waves and blood flow change measurably in different situations. Is the human brain a miracle? Is brain-to-brain human communication a miracle? No made-made computer can match all of our brain's efficient monitor, memory, and lightening-fast athletic control capabilities.

     

    Suppose that you divide one month into a million distinct mental thoughts, sensations, sounds, visions, dreams, and physical events

    A "one in a million" unique good event should happen to every person every month. That is 7 Billion per month worldwide - 84 Billion per year - Over 6 TRILLION one-in-a-million events worldwide in one human lifetime.

    Such good one-in-a-million things are NOT at all rare OR supernatural miracles.

    Every month: some (not all) people win the lottery; some bet on a long-shot and win; some parasitic hedge fund managers pick the right stocks; some worthless banks and corporations do not go belly up; some poorly-designed-and-maintained bridges and dams do not collapse; some fiat currencies survive another month; some drillers find the dirty things they are looking for; some people live through a near-death experience; some religious people (diagnosed with terminal cancer) pray and go into remission; some people who could not walk rise up and dance to the pulpit; some greedy selfish people get rich; some "lucky" evil criminals kill their spouse or children and get away with murder.

    Are all 7-Billion one-in-a-million worldwide MONTHLY events a notable "miracle" from God? Of Course NOT

    If you religiously "expect a miracle", you will probably call your personal monthly good events "miracles", when they are actually merely mathematically-predictable statistical probabilities of normal life obeying the never-changing Laws of Nature. If you tell people you're having multiple miracles each month, you have a silly definition for "miracle."

    Do YOU call one-in-a-million good events "miraculous divine intervention", where 7-Billion-times-each-month God intervenes in individual lives and violates His own Laws of Nature - which have not changed even once since the beginning of space and time? To whom do you attribute statistically-predictable unusually-bad-or-evil events?

    The Roman Catholic Pope cannot canonize saints unless they have PERFORMED (not just experienced) at least one "miracle."
    Do you know anyone who has ever prayed in vain to a miraculous saint?
    In Matthew 6, Jesus taught His disciples to pray to the Father (not even to Jesus Christ).

    Rick Perry's "The Response" group states that they thrive on their irrational foolish followers believing impossible "miracles."

    Fraudulent self-serving evangelists have always exploited and enslaved mediocre minds with hypnotic charismatic lies about miracles.

    If you believe that God intervened to save your life in a car wreck, then why didn't God stop the holocaust - when Hitler's Nazi
    crooked-cross "Christians" were slaughtering a million of God's chosen-and-cherished Jewish men, women, and children?

    Is God unjust, arbitrary, capricious, and downright unfair with His 7-Billion individual miracles every month?

    Why aren't all of YOUR monthly prayers for divine intervention always answered immediately in a miraculous way?

     

    "Not 20 people were convinced by the reported miracles of Christ, and yet people of the nineteenth century were coolly asked to be convinced on hearsay by miracles which those who are supposed to have seen them refused to credit." . . . "Religion can never reform mankind because religion is slavery." - Robert Ingersoll

    Q: Why do all courts of law disallow hearsay testimony? A: Justice

    Q: Why are all religions based on impossible hearsay miracles? A: Slavery

    "A miracle is an event described by those to whom it was told, by people who did not see it." - Elbert Hubbard

    If you believe ancient hearsay about any religious miraculous myths, then why do you not believe ALL fantastic myths from all religions?

    Ethnocentric bigoted foolishness: "The only real true miracles are the ones that I was taught when I was an innocent impressionable child.
    (Except for Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny) - How do I know, the Bible told me so."
    (snicker) Can you laugh at how stupid this sounds?

    Faith in ancient myths and miracles MUST be blind, dumb, and without skeptical critical thinking

    Miracles have no place at all in a rational world of modern scientific reason

    Solution Says: Then A Miracle Occurs

    Miracles, myths, and fables are relics of ancient manipulative lies and self deception

    Ancient Greeks needed an explanation for frightening lightning - They invented Zeus - The King of All Gods
    Today's scientists understand electricity and weather, and have no need for miraculous mythical Zeus

    Simple-minded fools believe and expect miracles - Scientists, engineers, and problem solvers must NOT

    Sarah Palin's call to national public prayer for "divine intervention" to end the BP oil spill FAILED
    The Tea Party unsustainable "Drill Baby Drill" political war cry requires divine intervention to avoid disaster

     

    The Universe Exists - Our Creator Is Majestic - Earthly humans cannot create a universe
    We will never know everything about God's Laws of Nature in this lifetime

    The Creation of the Universe may be the only ONE TRUE MIRACLE
    Everything since Creation has always obeyed the Creator's immutable Laws Of Nature
    (which we humans must study all of our lives, but we do not yet fully understand)
    From God's perspective, the Creation of the Universe was His own science, not a "miracle"

    No human myth or fable even comes close to explaining Creation of the Universe
    No ancient holy scroll contains a plausible scientific theory about Creation

    "All have fallen short of the glory of God"

    "You shall learn the Truth, and the Truth shall set you free"

    "PROVE all things; hold fast that which is True."

    Legal actions against Rick Perry's fraudulent unconstitutional "The Response" planning and promotion

    Americans United believes that Rick Perry's sponsorship of a "Christians-only" event fails to honor our country's religious diversity. His actions are divisive, unwelcoming and constitutionally inappropriate. The Response told non-Christians that they are NOT allowed to speak at the August 6 event, because that would "invite false gods" and promote "idolatry."

    "This is an explicitly Christian event because we are going to be praying to the one true God through His son, Jesus Christ. It would be idolatry of the worst sort for Christians to gather and invite false gods like Allah and Buddha and their false prophets to be with us at that time. Because we have religious liberty in this country, they are free to have events and pray to Buddha and Allah on their own. But this is time of prayer to the One True God through His son, Jesus Christ, who is The Way, The Truth, and The Life." - Allan Parker on The Response official letterhead

    BTW, Buddha NEVER claimed to be God. Buddha explicitly rejected the notion of a creator, and refused to endorse any views about creation. Buddhists refute the concept of a supreme God or a prime mover. Many Buddhists also study the morality teachings of Jesus. They seek peaceful spiritual nirvana. They generally do not impose their views on others. Allan Parker incorrectly assumed that Buddhists are as wickedly deceptive and evangelical as he is.

    Bryan Fischer, Allan Parker, and Rick Perry are clearly bigoted non-learning religiously-illiterate idiots - It is obvious that the speakers at their fundamentalist pathological August 6 "prayer rally" will offer more political pandering than just silent private Christian prayers in a closed closet.

    Rather than winning popular support, The Response greatly offended many potential Republican campaign supporters (in the non-Confederate states).

    Out-of-touch Rick Perry obviously hasn't a clue what to do. Do you want him to have authority over you?

    Could any form of ethnocentric bigotry be more clear? Is this the religious-freedom America that our founding fathers set in motion?

    Should a large-state governor support extreme bigotry and intolerance? No previous U.S. President has ever been such a radical religious-cult fanatic.

    http://HoustonClergyCouncil.org has a list of many popular recognized reasonable religious leaders who strongly oppose Perry's violation of the constitutional boundary between church and state. This clergy list includes caring religious representatives that are Bahais, Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, and Unitarian Universalists.

    In his official role as governor, Rick Perry has NO ethical or constitutional authority to use his office to promote his personal radical fanatical religious-cult beliefs over all others. It is absolutely NOT in any state governor's job job description to use taxpayer's public resources to orchestrate religious rallies, or to invite other government officials to join in and pander partisan politics with him.

     

    Tea Party people say they want to return to our (Deist) founding father's Constitution, but Rick's specific-religion selection is a direct violation of constitutional separation of church and state. Many organizations strongly believe that Perry's actions are a constitutional crime. Do you?

    The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says that our government shall NOT respect a specific establishment of religion - It is NOT the place of America's government (or governors) to impose on the people their personal religious belief about which religion is true, and which is not. That is a private freedom of choice reserved to the people, in our government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

    Article 6, section 3 of the U.S. Constitution explicitly says: "no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States."

    Rick Perry wants a litmus test that those in HIS government be his brand of evangelical Bible-believing "Christians" (who accept the scriptures that Rick likes, and reject the ones that Rick refuses to follow).

    After Republican Richard Nixon resigned the Presidency as a documented criminal facing impeachment, Nixon arrogantly told David Frost in a televised interview: "If the President does it, it is not against the law." Nixon (like so many other supercilious politicians) was never prosecuted for his multiple notorious crimes.

    Apparently, Rick Perry believes that the Nixon "Above The Law" Principle applies to Republican governors (himself) as well - Rick is above the U.S. Constitution. His only law is the way Rick chooses to interpret the King James Bible, and which parts of it that he obviously rejects.

    Perry's August 6 anti-Jesus day of prayer is specifically ONLY for people who contradict Jesus by praying in public, and who also claim to be Christians, "to pray to Jesus for guidance." Jesus taught His followers to pray directly to the Father, NOT TO JESUS.

    Perry's pandering political prayer day is laughable since by praying to Jesus in public they all clearly reject foundational principles taught by Jesus in The Sermon On The Mount..

    If non-Christians attend the August 6 prayer meeting, they will be encouraged to accept Jesus as their savior, as Perry also wants all Texas students to do in his unconstitutional Texas anti-Jesus Christocracy hypocrisy. The above rational logic is totally rejected by those unskeptical fools who support Rick Perry.

    Do you believe anyone will come away from Perry's Prayer meeting with new insight from Jesus, when they already reject the most-fundamental teachings of Jesus?

    RICK PERRY IS A POPULAR, GOOD-LOOKING, SPECTACULAR SELF-CONTRADICTION TO THE CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES THAT HE FALSELY CLAIMS TO STAND FOR - Perry follows Texas' centuries-old exclusionary ignorant hate-monger ethnocentric bigotry balderdash

    Rick Perry's Bigoted Texas Is Bigger and Holier Than Thou

    Rick Perry's Bizarro Confederal Christian Texas

     

    Rick Perry is certainly not the only religious hypocrite in American politics, nor is he the last dishonest dumb dinosaur

    Rick Perry's Texas has many voters who are not ashamed to be supporters of their forefather's slavery of kidnapped Africans

    Some are descendants, or members, of the white-supremacist Christian-cross-burning Ku Klux Klan Knights Party www.kkk.com

    They hate the humiliating huge nationwide landslide defeat that they suffered in the 2008 election of Barak Obama

    Modern Confederate bigots will be glad to destroy the American economy before they will allow Obama to be reelected

    USA is now more polarized than at any time for 150 years since 1861, just before our bloody, insane Civil War
    Mindless maniacs would rather decimate their grandchildren than compromise their ideologic bigotry

    "A house divided against itself cannot stand." - Abraham Lincoln, Mark 3:25

     

    A significant number of PROUD narcissistic Texas terrorists are members of the huge Southern Baptist "Christian" CULT

    Southern Baptists egotistically formally state that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a cult of non-Christians,
    while many of their own Tea Party terrorists violate most of the love and compassion teachings found in the New Testament
    They officially subsidize the oppressive Top 1%, and want to increase the tax burden, and decrease benefits, for the poor

    Their televangelists call the Catholic church "The Whore of Babylon", and falsely say that THEY are the only path to God (as if)
    They beg on TV for donations from the gullible poor, and wear a $10,000 Rolex on their fat wrist - Is this what Jesus taught?

    If you are a hypocritical bigot, you already know that the above is true - Why does it not bother you?

    Lying and hypocrisy are immoral sins that seem to have no punishment in America's dysfunctional divided partisan politics.

    Bigoted vipers are similar to Hitler's "Christian" Nazi's, and Survivor Island's greedy dishonest self-proclaimed "Christians"

     

    To win support from The Sons of Confederate Veterans, Rick Perry wrote a letter to them stating:

    "Although this is an emotional issue, I want you to know that I oppose efforts to
    remove Confederate monuments, plaques, and memorials from public property"

    When Perry ran for President in 2011, the national press raised the issue of the proposed Texas vanity license plate:

    Texas Sons Of Confederate Veterans vanity license plat Number 1 BIGOT

    For a time, the Number 1 Texas BIGOT was the Number 1 Republican Presidential Candidate Front Runner

    Perry was enthusiastically supported by millions of egocentric self-proclaimed slavery-promoting "Christian" bigots

     

    Rick Perry's largest lie when he announced his 2011 bid for president was:
    "If you support me, I will never embarrass you"

    In Q3 of 2011, Risky Ricky Perry received $17 million in political campaign bribes, while Romney only received $14 million

    When Perry showed up at the Republican debates, his well-documented low I.Q. badly embarrassed his foolish followers

     

    In an expensive campaign ad in rural Iowa, Rick Perry said:
    "liberals say that faith is a sign of weakness"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6tmsxdSUkY
    I am not aware of one single instance where that statement is true.
    Perry's lie is a fraudulent fabrication of a nonexistent enemy of faith.

    America was founded by intelligent men with powerful faith in our deity.
    Faith is the backbone of our hope for the future of our entire nation.
    Democrats and Republicans widely agree and reaffirm: "In God we trust"

    People who believe that Rick Perry is a faithful follower of Jesus' teachings
    are not necessarily weak, but they do lack basic powers of observation.
    Rick Perry is a spectacular anti-Christian world-class hypocrite
    that Jesus often warned His faithful followers against.
    Pandering to faithful rural-Iowa Christians is a sign of pollical evil

     

    Koch-brothers' radical-fundamentalist Tea Party terrorists have a huge "war chest" to wage class warfare on 99% of Americans

    The complete insanity is that many of Perry's badly-bigoted, gullible, religious supporters are part of the oppressed 99%

    We truly live in a world with many spectacularly-stupid non-learning self-righteous pseudo-religious Tea Party hypocrites

    With no basis in morality, love, or compassion, will anyone be surprised if such a selfish society collapses, very soon?

    The "Faith Box" (Boil-A-Faithful-Frog) Parable

    Faith in realistic rational goals can be wonderfully motivational. We all need a compelling vision of a better future - BUT,
    deceptive fraudulent con men exploit the natural need for faith among gullible people - to the detriment of all

    There is no limit to self-delusional suicidal greedy gullibility - It is precisely why 98% of badly-misled Americans are declining rapidly today.

    This section is intended to be tongue-in-cheek humor - We hope it will help you laugh at the easy deception of simpleton mediocre minds, AND encourage healthy intelligent skepticism and hesitation whenever a pandering politician asks you to ignore science, logic, mathematics, economics, and rational reasoning - to accept a fraudulent harmful bill of goods purely by faith.

    Suppose you are suffering from a mountain of bad-lifestyle decisions in nutrition, lack of healthy exercise, wasted time, selfish social / financial / sinful / criminal thoughts and behaviors.

    You cannot sleep with your self-created depression, so you turn on late-night cable TV - to help numb your mind. While in a near-hypnotic television trance, you accidently stumble on a charismatic speaker, just as he is saying that "It is God's divine intervention that you should watch this program right now." This can't be a mere coincidence. Maybe he is correct, so you turn up the volume and lean forward.

    You are offered a miraculous "Faith Box." It contains the solution to many worldly problems. However, you must believe in the "Faith Box" without seeing inside, or it will not work at all for you.

    Jesus promoted blind faith: John 20:29 "Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed."

    Normally the rare "Faith Box" is worth well-over $1,000 dollars, but because you are faithful, you will not pay $500, not even $200, the one-time price just for true believers is only $99.99. BUT WAIT, for the next three minutes only, your personal "Faith Box" is totally FREE (just pay $7.99 shipping and handling). The infomercial runs night after night for months.

    Three people (infomercial actors paid by the con man) in situations similar to yours testify that they got the box, an impossible miracle occurred, and their problems went away.

    A still small voice deep inside you says that this "Faith Box" may be God's perfect plan for your life. After all it is totally FREE (and $7.99 is a reasonable S&H fee).

    You decide to blindly order your personal free "Faith Box." The next few days and months, many other free-fish-hook spam offers appear in your in-box.

    Three weeks later, your free "Faith Box" arrives from China. You open it to find only a folded up return shipping box, with the following note inside:

    " Luke 17: 'If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.' Matthew 17: 'The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree. . . . If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE UNTO YOU. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.'

    As a demonstration of your Seed Faith, place valuables in this "Faith Box", send it to us, pray for a miracle, fast, and God will remove your mountain of woes."

    A still small voice deep inside says that this must surely be God's perfect plan for you. You load up precious valuables and gratefully ship them to the cable TV con man.

    A month later, another $7.99 charge appears on your credit card. You call the original phone number, and the bored operator reads a script to you: "You must persevere in your faith, fasting and prayer. Claim God's promises for your life. (Read the fine print on our contract.) God will work His miracles at the most-appropriate time in your life."

    Month after month the unauthorized $7.99 charges keep coming. You call the "Faith Box" phone number again. It has been disconnected.

    Have you learned God's lesson for your life yet? Maybe you should order yet another "Faith Box." (The board is too short - Try cutting it again - snicker)

    Non-learning gullible fools (with no powers of observation, skepticism, or critical thinking skills) WANT to believe a pandering charismatic con-artist televangelist who promises simple "free" solutions to mankind's many self-imposed catastrophic crises

    Many impoverished, ineffective, enslaved people of blind faith incorrectly believe that "Faith can move mountains." They will nod their heads and praise God in unison compliance when anyone thumps a Bible and tells them so. Millions of unskeptical Americans honestly believe televangelists who tell them "Every word in the Holy Bible is the divine 'Word Of God' that must be accepted by faith and become the foundation for all of your future real-world decisions."

    Only illiterate non-readers could believe such an obviously-false dogmatic dishonest doctrine -
    America's founding father Deists most-certainly did NOT - Anyone who says that they did is a LIAR

    From a purely-scientific rational perspective, there is ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER that prayer, fasting or words alone have ever moved one real-world mountain even one inch. Things that many gullible people call "impossible miracles of pure faith," are nothing but non-learning self delusion of those who need a religious crutch.

    Deists believe that NO ancient fantastic magical metaphysical metaphorical book ever written on Earth can be believed literally and scientifically in its entirety.

    There are many good principles of living in many long-term-successful religious scriptures - BUT, all books and stone tablets were written by the hand of imperfect man, trying to understand the perfect plan of the Creator of the Universe. Are The Ten Commands the literal law of God for all people for all time? What do you do on Saturday? Have you ever paid taxes to a government that ever kills anyone for any reason?

    Since no one on Earth has EVER moved a real-world mountain by mere blind faith,
    then clearly, no one on Earth has even as much faith as one tiny mustard seed.

    The words: "NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE UNTO YOU" apparently have NEVER been true in the real world.

    Even Jesus' Matthew 26:39 prayer at he the end of His life went unanswered: "O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me"

    Did Jesus not have enough faith to change God's preordained plan for the end of His life on Earth?

    The Bible says that Jesus had read the Hebrew scroll prophesies about the life and death of the Messiah.

    Jesus ended His crucifixion prayer with "Not my will, but Thine be done",
    which is the ONLY valid prayer to pray in our private closet today.

    God is NOT capricious or arbitrary, or swayed by the selfish prayers of greedy men, regardless of blind faith
    - No one can move even one grain of sand by faith alone, much less miraculously move a real-world mountain
    - Every con-man's "Faith Box" is always empty (unless you have self-delusional hallucinations)

    Ben Bernanke is offering the gullible world the largest, most-deceptive, con-man's "FAITH BOX" ever in human history on Earth

    You would have to have blind faith as large as a mountain to believe the HUGE LIES that Bernanke tells Congress every six months

    If you disagree, then you must be a person of blind faith in impossible miracles, as a great many foolish Americans seem to be today

    Does this sound even a little bit "funny" to you? Would you like to buy the Brooklyn Bridge?

     

    Oral Roberts, ORU, and John Eidsmoe had a great influence on Michele Bachmann's use of criminal fraud

    Have you ever seen anyone who claims to be a Christian who prays in public - In direct violation of Jesus' fundamental Sermon on the Mount? Such false Christians do NOT follow the basic teachings of Jesus.

    Wealthy televangelists are the WORST example of everything Jesus preached against. How dare they arrogantly claim to be "Christians" who follow Christ, when they are con men and hypocritical selfish treacherous tyrants. They were the inspiration for Ray Stevens song: "Would Jesus wear a Rolex?" Would He ask you for 20 with 10,000 on his arm?

    In 2007, the U.S. Senate began investigations into the criminal finances of fraudulent televangelists. See Prosperity_Theology

    ORU-trained Michele Bachmann became the popular queen of the U.S. House Of Representatives Tea Party caucus, and a 2012 U.S. Presidential Candidate. The first prerequisite to receive Tea Party funding is to deny the scientific evidence of man-made climate change. This is easy for fanatical fundamentalists who reject most of science (evolution, etc.) to do.

    The extremely-corrupt-and-wealthy Koch brothers (world's largest privately-owned oil company) provide the majority of Tea Party funding. They have given over $25 million to candidates who deny the proven scientific truth about global warming. The largest receiver of Koch bribery has been Senator Jim Inhofe (also from Oklahoma oil country). When George Bush finally admitted that man was causing worldwide climate change with greenhouse gas emissions, Inhofe and Bachmann spoke out against the President of their own party (in order to maintain Koch brothers funding). The love of money controls the political ideology of corrupt politicians, including those who falsely claim to be Christians who pray in public to Jesus.

    Bachmann often says that "global warming is a hoax." She says that since carbon dioxide is "a natural by product of nature", it is a beneficial gas required by plant life. She falsely states that because life requires carbon dioxide. and it is part of the planet's life cycle, CO2 cannot be harmful. On the House floor on Earth Day, April 22, 2009, Bachmann stated she was against the cap and trade climate legislation, stating: "Carbon dioxide is not a harmful gas, it is a harmless gas. Carbon dioxide is natural; it is not harmful.... We're being told we have to reduce this natural substance to create an arbitrary reduction in something that is naturally occurring in the earth."

    When Bachmann was interviewed by the Northern Alliance Radio Network, she spoke out against cap and trade legislation, which BOTH Obama and McCain supported in the 2008 Presidential campaign. Bachmann said she wanted Minnesotans "armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back." Her words went viral on the Internet.

    To gain significant oil company financial support, Michele became a leading Congressional advocate for increased domestic oil-and-natural-gas exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and the Outer Continental Shelf.

    Bachmann voted against increasing higher education Pell grants. She incorrectly said that the measure favored direct lending, which she felt should be handled with additional middleman overhead by for-profit commercial lending institutions.

    The Tea Party falsely claims that they want smaller government with less regulation (for fossil fuel companies). However, Michele Bachmann is quite the opposite in many areas. In a heavy-handed way, she wants to do away with First Amendment Freedom of Speech. She wants it to be a Federal Crime of "Blasphemy" for anyone to speak out against the many wrongs that so-called Christians are doing today.

    Michele wants it to be Federal Law that all immigrants must reject their fundamental beliefs in non-Christian religions, such as Islam Sharia conduct (explicitly tolerated by a 100% unanimous vote in the early U.S. Senate).

    Bachmann wants to remove the states' right to determine the definition of marriage, and replace it with a one-size-fits-all-federal mandate.

    She supports sending brave young patriots into harm's way to fight unjustified oil war based on lies about non-existent weapons of mass destruction, and to kill a million innocent non-combatant women and children, BUT she wants Federal law banning all abortions in America at any time for any reason. "Thou shalt not kill" does not have an exception for collateral damage while fighting to steal other nations' oil.

    Bachmann voted to extend the invasive Republican Patriot Act, which essentially eliminated Constitutional privacy in America.

    Bachmann and Palin have both clearly demonstrated that they are NOT as smart as a fifth grader when it comes to basic American history.

     

    In multiple presidential campaign advertisements, Michele promises emphatically: "I will NOT vote to increase the debt ceiling" (no exceptions, no matter what). Michele kept this promise and voted AGAINST the Republican Cut, Cap, and Balanced Budget Bill (H.R. 2560). She joined 180 Democrats, and only 9 Republicans to vote against the debt reduction bill.

    The uncompromising extremist Republicans who voted against their party on H.R. 2560 Cut, Cap, and Balance Bill include: Michele Bachmann, Paul Broun, Francisco Canseco, Scott DesJarlais, Parker Griffith, Walter B. Jones, Connie Mack, Ron Paul, and Dana Rohrabacher. If they got their political pleasure, America would NOT be able to send out at least some of 70,000,000 checks on August 3, 2011 to recipients of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, heath care workers, disability, military pay, government subcontractors, etc. USA would default on its debt payments. Our USA credit rating would drop - Every loan for everything would have a higher interest rate, driving our floundering economy further down the drain. Many Americans would eventually die due to lack of compassion for the truly need who are NOT represented by Republicans who demand tax breaks and subsidies for millionaires and billionaires.

    Top economists, the Treasury Secretary, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank, Moody's, S & P, and the United Nations economic advisors ALL say that a U.S. debt default (as desired by the above 9 morons) would be worldwide financial Armageddon - worse than the job losses, bankruptcies, home foreclosures, and $15 Trillion hole that the Bush / Cheney never-ending wars, tax cuts, and deficit spending policies caused in 2008.

    Being fully aware of that, the insane Tea Party caucus WANTS the American economy to crash, so the extremely-corrupt Republican Tea Party can defeat Obama (and mainstream Republicans) in the November 2012 election (and Michele will become the President, as if). Tea Party extremists have divided centrist mainstream Republicans in a very destructive big-money-corruption way.

    Such reckless partisan political insanity has never been seen in the history of humanity. America does need to balance our burdensome out-of-control deficit-spending generational-theft budget, BUT it must be done in a fair and balanced way, with a realistic plan to mitigate the unavoidable economic disaster that our near-term traumatic transition will surely cause. Michele Bachmann hasn't offered the first clue about what to do. She emphatically says NO and irrationally refuses to cooperate, compromise, or listen to reason. Michele is doing everything she can to bring about Revelation's Armageddon. Why is she so popular with non-learning fools?

     

    Just like televangelist Oral Roberts, Tea-vangelist Michele Bachmann habitually lies about receiving Prophetic Visions directly from God, which have guided the important choices in her ORU Law School education, marriage (to a Medicaid fraud criminal), and radical right-wing Tea Party political pandering suicidal policies.

    700 Foot Jesus to Michele Bachmann Oral Roberts University Law School

    Michele apparently believes that she is Holier Than Thou, so 700-foot Jesus speaks directly to her (and not to you).

    Michele will therefore do what she is told by Jesus: Be God's Prophet, and tell you Jesus' plan for your life,
    which is: Send lots of money to Michele, and vote for her as the world's militant Commander In Chief

    How could anyone of her gullible unskeptical supporters vote against 700-foot-tall Jesus? (chuckle)

    It worked great for the totally-insane wealth-accumulation expert Oral Roberts, and it is working well for Michele !

    The non-partisan Pulitzer Prize winning PolitiFact.com evaluated recent statements by Michele Bachmann and only found one of them to be True. She was labeled the Number One 2011 political liar. Here are a few statements that received their "Liar Liar Pants On Fire" label.

    TOTALLY FALSE statements by the ORU-trained habitual-liar lawyer Michele Bachmann:

    Liar Liar Pants On Fire Truth O Meter

    "One. That's the number of new drilling permits under the Obama administration since they came into office."
    At that time there were 270, today there are over 300 - Oil and gas drilling increased 11% since Obama took office
    The Republican
    "Drill Baby Drill" and "Drill Here, Drill Now" war cry chants totally ignore the Truth
    that Obama INCREASED domestic drilling, while Bush / Cheney made it decline
    Unskeptical gullible bigots
    love to be lied to by dishonest hate mongers

    Small businesses that have "$250,000 in GROSS sales for the business.
    They're the ones that are looking at massive tax increases."

    The Truth: Income tax after expenses - based on NET income over $250K - would increase
    only 3.6% to the level of Bill Clinton's balanced budget - NOT A MASSIVE TAX INCREASE

    "Speaker Pelosi ... has been busy sticking the taxpayer with her $100,000 bar tab
    for alcohol on the military jets that she's flying." Totally False

    Health care bill "says specifically that people can't purchase private health insurance after a date certain"
    Totally False - No basis in any fact whatsoever

    ACORN will be a paid partner with the Census Bureau and
    "they will be in charge of going door-to-door and collecting data from the American public."

    ACORN "could get up to $8.5 billion more tax dollars despite being under investigation
    for voter registration fraud in a dozen states."
    False

    Michele says the Constitution only requires her to tell the census "how many people are in our home."

    In the 1970s, "the swine flu broke out . . . under another Democrat, President Jimmy Carter."
    (as if flu is a Democrat conspiracy - what an asinine partisan political statement to make)

    "The president released all of the oil from the Strategic Oil Reserve." (Only 4% - NOT ALL)

    "The top 1 percent of income-earners pay about 40 percent of all taxes into the federal government."

    "Secretly, unbeknownst to members of Congress, over $105 billion was hidden in the Obamacare legislation."

    "The president of the United States will be taking a trip over to India
    that is expected to cost the taxpayers $200 million a day."

    “Social Security, like I told you, is out of money. This year it is borrowing from the general treasury.”
    The trillions of dollars that the general treasury STOLE from the SS trust fund have NOT been paid back yet

    "The New England Journal of Medicine released a survey the week that President Obama signed Obamacare stating that over 30% of American physicians would leave the profession if the government took over health care."

    "President Obama's bill won't bring down the costs (of health care) for average Americans
    - or really for very few Americans, if any." (It already has lowered costs)

    Ezekiel Emanuel, one of President Obama's key health care advisers,
    "says medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled. So watch out if you're disabled."

    "Secretary Geithner has left the option on the table" of abandoning the dollar for a multinational currency
    This Bachmann LIE was strongly denied by Geithner

    "Obamacare is the largest spending and entitlement program ever passed in our nation's history"
    Totally FALSE - The Congressional Budget Office says that Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid will each cost much more

    Michele Bachmann signed a public pledge which clearly stated that African-American children
    were better off under slavery than under Barack Obama - Do you agree with her dishonest crap?

    Insensitive Michele said that the east coast earthquake and deadly hurricane Irene
    were signs from God that Washington D.C. is spending too much.
    Dear fossil-fuel corrupted Idiot, deadly man-made global warming is no joking matter.
    Tea Party Drill Baby Drill deregulation and oil-company subsidies are making climate change much worse.

     

    The Bachmann farm lists Michele as an owner. Michele reported that she received $259,332 in documented federal farm subsidies,
    including outrageous support for ethanol from corn food crops. She LIED to reporters that she "never got a dime"
    which directly contradicts her own legal financial statements that she has filed since she became a Representative

     

    -> Michele Bachmann blames Medicaid for swelling the "welfare rolls", but her husband's consumer-fraud company
    has collected more than $137,000 in Medicaid payments, plus a $24,000 grant to increase his profits
    - Marcus Bachmann is an unlicensed psychiatrist with his own discredited unprofessional clinic
    - There is more Medicaid fraud in small-clinic businesses like his today than in large hospitals

    We now have investigative videos of Bachmann and Associates clinic practitioners using
    professionally-discredited, bigoted religious "reparative therapy" to add guilt to potentially-suicidal
    patients, and use charismatic faith healing prayer to try to correct perceived mental disorders.
    The Bachmann's repeatedly deceive the government and firmly stated they do NOT do such things.
    In recent interviews Michele says: "We are very proud of the business that we created."

     

    Should taxpayers continue to subsidize Bachman and Associates'
    ongoing harmful criminal consumer Medicaid fraud?

     

    Intolerance of Diversity: For some reason that we do not understand, the Law of Moses in Leviticus and Deuteronomy dealt with homosexuality, BUT Jesus never spoke specifically about masturbation or homosexuality. If Jesus was silent (for whatever reason), should Jesus-like Christians be militant about either side of any controversial topic?

    Religious diversity is the Bill of Rights freedom of all Americans. Intolerance, inequity, and injustice are the way of the evil unconstitutional anti-Jesus dark side. The temptation of Christ is detailed in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Each time Jesus was tempted, He rejected satanic evil. Jesus understood the temptations of the flesh. He forgave people of their earthly sins, and drew his male and female followers to God through consistent demonstration of honest true love and compassion (not hate). The world would be a better place if we had more forgiving Christ-like love. It is rare among hypocritical hate mongers who falsely claim to be Christians.

    In America today, over one half of people polled tolerate two people of the same sex sharing their love with each other. In the Bible, "marriage" is the joining of one man and one woman to become one flesh, but the New Testament says nothing good or bad about same-sex love for each other. Is such a union to be tolerated today?

    Should everything in the Old Testament be obeyed today? If Exodus 21 "eye for an eye" was enforced, we might all be toothless and blind.

    Is homosexuality a religious concept that is like masturbation, where everyone is tempted and church leaders should remain silent? Should everyone have the right to chose who they are drawn to romantically, and why? It is clear that some same-sex couples are good, kind, loving parents, and productive members of society that I would not mind living next to.

    Militant fanatical behavior on either side of this intense issue is unhealthy for society. BUT, should even a majority of Christians impose their personal religious beliefs on others? These are unresolved non-trivial social questions of today. Same-sex marriage seems to be more about benefits like non-universal health insurance, than interpretation of the Bible.

    There are good-and-valid arguments on both sides of similar issues about abortion, homosexuality, interpretation of the Constitution, immigration, citizenship, even what kind of light bulbs we use. I have my own personal opinions, but I am not militant about them. I think freedom of choice is generally good, but manufactures should have incentives to produce more-efficient cost-effective light bulbs.

    Some "Christian" churches now tolerate and enable homosexual male or female priests. You have the constitutional right to agree or disagree with them, to attend or not attend, but no one has the right to commit hate crimes against them, or those who do not agree with them.

    The swastika is an equilateral cross with arms bent at right angles. It was a Christian good luck symbol in the early 1900's, until the swastika was adopted by Adolf Hitler's conservative Christian Nazi Party in 1920. Hitler's intolerant Christian "brownshirt" (Sturmabteilung - SA) storm troopers wore the Christian swastika, and were taught to persecute homosexuals. (The same way the Christian Inquisition persecuted Galileo.

    The young Christian brownshirts began killing homosexuals BEFORE they began killing Jews. There was no penalty in Hitler's Germany for killing homosexuals. Hate-crime intolerance was enabled and encouraged. It led to the terrible holocaust, and ultimately the destruction of Hitler's perverse Germany Christianity.

     

    Bryan Fischer is a modern Christian radio bigot with 200 stations and a Hitler-like crusade to verbally persecute homosexuals. Fischer is a habitual liar. He panders to the gullible extreme-right wing nuts. Fischer preaches a totally-false message about how Hitler used homosexuals to slaughter Jews. Documentation shows that Fischer is not even remotely honest!

    Marcus (and Michele) Bachmann have views about homosexuals that are similar to Fischer, et. al. Anti-Jesus totally-dishonest pandermaster Michele is proud to openly say: "Gays are part of Satan." Marcus has clearly lied and denied his intolerant position, and discredited counselling-business methods, but we now have broadcast recordings where Marcus said that homosexuals are "barbarians that need education and discipline." And, the for-profit Bachmann and Associates counseling business is the place to get it, with $137K/year taxpayer Medicaid funding subsidies. If USA subsidizes big oil business and big banks, why not subsidize Bachmann business bigotry?

    Is the criminal-fraud Bachmann business more like Jesus, Fischer, Limbaugh, or Hitler? You may cast your vote any way you chose.

    For years before Michele announced her candidacy for President of the U.S., she and her husband Marcus were members of an intolerant evangelical church that openly proclaimed that the Roman Catholic Pope is the anti-Christ (Satan incarnate). It seems that these ethnocentric egotistical bigots think that most humans around the world are at least part of Satan.

    Michele Bachmann frequently contradicts Jesus AND herself. To gain Tea Party support she often denounces Obama's socialist interference in the market place, but in reality she benefits greatly from the earmarks and pork-barrel spending she has won for her state. On Oct. 5, 2009, Bachmann wrote the Obama Administration Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack praising him for subsidizing her state's pork industry. She went on to request ADDITIONAL ongoing socialist assistance: "Your efforts to stabilize prices through direct government purchasing of pork and dairy products are very much welcomed by the producers in Minnesota, and I would encourage you to take any additional steps necessary to prevent further deterioration of these critical industries, such as making additional commodity purchases and working to expand trade outlets for these and other agricultural goods." But in political campaigns, Michele Bachmann consistently maintains that EVERYTHING Obama does hurts our economy.

    You can't have it both ways Michele -
    You constantly and clearly speak with the forked tongue of a sinister satanic serpent !

    It is not so much that Bachmann was the #1 documented habitual liar in the 2011 / 2012 Presidential campaign -
    She cannot help herself - after all she IS a lawyer / politician who was brainwashed by notorious con men and big-oil bribes
    Every week the press catches her in yet another political-manipulation lie, in her laughable attempt to grab wealth and power.

    Even a news anchor on ultra-Republican Fox News asked Michele if she was
    just badly misinformed, or frequently lying on purpose

     

    Michele Bachman won the Ames Iowa Republican Straw Poll -
    She proved that all that's required is a couple of bales of hay,
    a microphone in the hands of a power-hungry proven habitual liar,
    and 4,800 gullible farmers with $30 to spend for a plate of BBQ

    (Michele paid the $30 each for 6,000 people who were supposed to vote for her, but only 4,800 did)
    Did the Iowa straw poll prove that Michele Bachman would make a great president? Of course NOT

    Machele Bachmann  Ames Iowa Straw Poll Speech

     

    What is outrageous is that non-reading fools believe her endless lies and send her money
    (just like the endless Oral Roberts wealth-accumulation faith box scams, scandals, and scoundrels)

    Winning a seat in the House convinced Michele that Oral's misleading methods work,
    when you are preaching to stupid unskeptical mediocre greedy minds

    Michele must believe that her goals justify unscrupulous anti-Jesus methods -
    It is like the Christian Inquisition, which justified torture, killing, and wealth accumulation

    When humans turn away from their moral foundation, they can justify any evil perversion

    When Barack Obama became President, Republicans proclaimed that they would make health care reform his Waterloo. Michele Bachmann contributed to Sara Palin's "death panel" controversy when she read from a July 24 article written by Betsy McCaughey from the floor of the House. Palin said that her "death panel" remark was inspired by what she called the "Orwellian" opinions of Ezekiel Emanuel as described by Bachmann, who accused him of advocating health care rationing by age and disability. According to PolitiFact and Time, Bachmann's euthanasia remarks distorted Emanuel's position on health care for the elderly and disabled. FactCheck.org stated, "We agree that Emanuel's meaning is being twisted"(by Bachmann and Palin). When many doctors wanted to legalize euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide, Emanuel opposed it.

    On August 31, 2009, Bachmann spoke at an event in Colorado, saying of Democratic health care overhaul proposals that: "This cannot pass. What we have to do today is make a covenant, to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing. This will not pass. We will do whatever it takes to make sure this doesn't pass." The Republicans failed. Now Republicans want to return to the previous capitalistic inequity of denial of health coverage due to children, people with pre-existing conditions, excessive benefits paid out, etc.

    Michele Bachmann rejects Deuteronomy 16:19: "thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous." But, in the June 13, 2011 debate, Bachmann quoted Deuteronomy 28:13: "The Lord will make you the head and not the tail." Which is used in theocratic circles to motivate religious activism in politics. She is well-known among fundamentalist as one who selectively picks a chooses her Bible quotes, while hypocritically rejecting most of the original message. She is by far the most-extreme radical fanatical ethnocentric bigoted anti-Jesus theocrat of any presidential candidate, which makes Bachmann and Palin very popular among the unskeptical gullible who feed on puke from a perverted political passionate pulpit.

    Bachmann has raised tens of millions of dollars of campaign bribes from big oil and the anti-Jesus evangelical wealth-accumulation right wing. Oral Roberts would be proud of what his "Seed Faith" legacy brainwash message of "Expect A Miracle" set in motion in Michele Bachmann. It is a miracle that she has any respect at all. (snicker) Are you proud of her too? Do you want Michele to lead America into heavy-handed Oral-Roberts-style anti-Christian dictatorial "Oralocracy", in direct violation of our U.S. Constitution and Jesus' own teachings of compassionate love, honesty, and equality? Should Congress endorse the corrupt wealth-accumulation faith-based religion? Will that prevent the collapse of the high-risk U.S.-Dollar-based declining fiat-currency economy?

    It is becoming clear to you yet what the new capitalistic Tea Party Leadership wants for America?

    Are the Tea Party fanatical extreme obstructionists best for the future of our precious grandchildren?

    Michele Bachmann is a powerful ORU-Law-School "Tea-vangelist"
    - Very popular with gullible, easily-manipulated, mediocre minds

    Michele Bachmann is clearly a great evil in America, but then so are almost all other politicians and greedy corporate executives

    Does she support your personal bias? If you are a Christian with a functional brain, you cannot possibly support Michele Bachmann's endless deception.

    Many evangelical bigots are sexists - They will not support a woman (even Bachmann or Palin) to be the President of USA. If they defeat Romney (as they did in 2008), then Rick Perry may have a better chance at the Republican nomination than discredited Michele Bachmann. Who knows? Dumber things happen every day. It would be a mistake to underestimate the non-learning stupidity of the gullible mediocre majority. Democrats once thought that the "Bedtime for Bonzo" has-been actor Ronald Reagan was an un-electable joke.

     

    Oral Robert's Darling  Power and Prosperity Theology Crusader Michele Bachman

     

    If you want to guarantee that a bill will NOT pass Congress, get Michele Bachmann to support it

    She is so radical that even with a Republican-controlled House of Representatives, NO legislation that she has introduced or sponsored has passed.

    But, Michele Bachmann has come up with a 16-point specific detailed proposal to create jobs, jobs, jobs in America.
    We strongly support all 16 of her job creation proposals - Say what ? !

    The following 16-minute 2-Part video gem is so hilarious that we laughed out loud until our sides ached.
    We hope that this funny video goes viral - This is MUST SEE POLITICAL TV:
    Part 1

    Bachmann extreme hypocrisy documentation: http://www.HuffingtonPost.com/2011/08/10/michele-bachmann-stimulus_n_922851.html

    Similar job-creation stimulus money funding requests requests were made out of public view by corrupt hypocritical Senators: Lamar Alexander (TN), Richard Burr (NC), Scott Brown (MA), Kay Bailey Hutchison (TX), Jim Inhofe (OK), Mike Johanns (NE), John McCain (AZ), Mitch McConnell (KY), and Harry Reid (NV).

    House of Representatives job creation stimulus money requests: Speaker John Boehner (OH), Mad Hatter No-Compromise Eric Cantor (VA), Brad Ellsworth (IN), Mary Bono Mack (CA), John Carter (TX), Phil Gingrey (GA), Jack Kingston (GA), John Mica (FL), Nancy Pelosi (CA), Mike Pence (IN), Bill Shuster (PA), Glenn Thompson (PA), Patrick Tiberi (OH), Joe Wilson (SC), and Frank Wolf (VA)

    “The GOP should not be taking this money and spending it regardless of where it came from. They should be fighting against it with every fiber of their elected beings.” - Rob Gaudet - National Coordinator for Tea Party Patriots

    Mattie Corrao, the Executive Director of Americans for Tax Reform’s Center for Fiscal Accountability, said that these disclosed letters show “it’s about self-interest” when it comes to federal spending. They pound the podium and say they are against stimulus money, but: “Politicians just want to keep their jobs. In no way should anyone be buying into that failed argument (for the stimulus). But the case is the money is going somewhere, and people who want to stay elected and see it as politically beneficial are going to do it.”

    America ought to flummox those who speak out against job creation stimulus spending, by approving all of their hidden requests for stimulus money, and do similar things for every struggling community across America that badly needs living-wage jobs, jobs, jobs with reasonable family benefits.

     

    Michele Bachmann used taxpayer funds to illegally help bring down U.S. government majority opinion

    Representative Michele Bachmann invited thousands of Tea Party Terrorists to descend on the Capitol to vent their rage over "Obamacare." Michele's gullible activists chanted, "Kill the bill!" and waved signs opposing the majority of Congressional opinion. Michele said that "Obamacare is the largest spending and entitlement program ever passed in our nation's history", which is Totally FALSE - The Congressional Budget Office says that Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid will each cost much more.

    Most taxpayers did not realize that the government that the Tea Party was attacking was PAYING FOR BACHMANN'S ANTI-HEALTH CARE POLITICAL EVENT. According to House expense reports, Representatives Bachmann, Tom Price, Steve King, and Todd Akin each paid $3,407.50 that day, a total of $13,630, to National Events, for the sound system used at the rally. The money came from the members' taxpayer-funded office accounts, despite House rules strictly prohibit the use of these funds for political activities.

    Michele Bachmann's illegal abuse of power has made her Tea Party above the law of the land - Does anyone care?

    She is in clear violation of her Oath of Office, should be immediately impeached, and banned from government employment

     

    Michele Bachman is a mind-altering-drug addict, due to her frequent chronic debilitating migraine headaches

    http://DailyCaller.com/2011/07/18/stress-related-condition-incapacitates-bachmann-heavy-pill-use-alleged/

    "The migraines are so bad and so intense, she carries and takes all sorts of pills. Prevention pills. Pills during the migraine. Pills after the migraine, to keep them under control. She has to take these pills wherever she goes."

    Bachmann's staff are "constantly" in touch with her doctors to adjust medication levels. The weekly intense headaches render her "incapacitated" and even hospitalized.

    It is a stress related condition. Habitual liars are in constant apprehension - Afraid that the truth will come to light. Apprehension causes self-generated stress, which causes multiple cascading medical disorders. When the truth is publicized, it amplifies the stress on the liar, resulting in depression, and debilitating mental anguish.

    There are thousands of potential causes for many different types of headaches, but "Migraine" headaches are a specific type of abnormal brain function.

    Migraines are much more frequent in women. The French word "migraigne" means "half + cranium". It is asymmetric pain - predominately on one side of the brain.

    Migraine headaches are often linked with "tension headaches", which are usually symmetric on both side of the brain.

    Most people uninformed people think that "migraine" means "severe." This is an inaccurate over simplification.

    Stress and tension-related headaches are simple self-imposed plumbing problems. A muscular reaction to stress tightens the neck muscles around the jugular veins, and scalp where flow flows to the brain. The heart can increase blood pressure and overcome blood flow resistance in arteries carrying blood to the brain, BUT gravity is insufficient to overcome restricted veins that are trying to return oxygen-depleted blue blood to the heart and lungs. This results in stale blood trapped in the blood. The pain comes from oxygen starvation. It can cause nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, and debilitating throbbing that is usually felt only on one side.

    Muscle relaxants such as tizanidine are sometimes prescribed. It can interact in a difficult-to-predict unstable toxic way with other prescription and non-prescription medications, foods, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products. Tizanidine's (and other muscle relaxant's) negative side effects include: slow heart rate, weakness, dizziness, drowsiness, fuzzy thinking, weakness, nervousness, depression, vomiting, tingling sensation in the arms, legs, hands, and feet, dry mouth, constipation, diarrhea, stomach pain, heartburn, muscle spasms, back pain, rash, sweating, nausea, extreme tiredness, unusual bleeding or bruising, lack of energy, loss of appetite, pain in the upper right part of the stomach, yellowing of the skin or eyes, flu-like symptoms, changes in vision, seeing things (visions) or hearing voices that do not exist.

    The negative side effects of drugs used to treat apprehensive stressed-out habitual liars with migraine headaches can themselves be debilitating, or even deadly.

    Tricyclic antidepressants such as amitriptyline, nortriptyline, or doxepin are often used to treat the extreme depression associated with migraine pain, or the side effects of other migraine medications. These antidepressants can cause self-destructive suicidal mood swings. The drug manufacturers warn that your "mental health may change in unexpected ways." Tricyclic antidepressants are scientifically known to interact with other substances in difficult-to-predict ways.

    When you make heavy use of man-made chemicals to treat your brain, you are playing with unpredictable, uncontrollable wild fire. That is why medical doctors are constantly changing Michele Bachmann's migraine medications, as she reacts in many radical ways.

    A variety of pain relievers from over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to addictive strong narcotics are often prescribed for migraine headache suffers. By definition, pain relievers are designed to diminish or block the normal function of brain cell neurons. You brain is always less effective under the influence of symptomatic pain medications. Frequent use can permanently damage or kill neurons. Pain killers only treat the pain symptom. They do NOT treat or cure the underlying cause (such as habitual liar apprehension, poor stress management lifestyle, drug addiction, improper nutrition, etc.). Pain medications only relieve headache symptoms for a short period of time. Over time they become less effecting, which often results in dangerous increased dosage. Pain killers are unsustainable short-sighted, short-term symptomatic temporary relief. Regular, overuse of pain medications can lead to rebound headaches. They have a long-term negative symptom cascade. It is MUCH better to understand the cause-and-effect, and chance lifestyle to avoid migraine headache pain.

    Benjamin Franklin: "Tricks and treachery are the practice of FOOLS, that don't have brains enough to be honest"

    Stupid people who are mentally incapable of telling the truth cause themselves debilitating pain and suffering

    The mind controls the body - Habitual liars with low self esteem cannot cope with the stress that they create

    Scientific studies prove that lifestyle changes, and especially mental activity, can and do mitigate or eliminate migraine headaches

    One trigger for migraine headaches is improper nutrition, which lowers one's resistance to stressful situations. In today's world, our media presents an unrealistic image of skinny women. Trying to maintain a school-girl figure, after having several babies is both stressful, and unhealthy. Skinny mothers are often undernourished. They sometimes consume "excitotoxin" sugar-substitute "diet" foods, which are known scientifically to damage neurons and cause reduced central-nervous-system sensory-and-brain function, and severe headaches. Women who strive to maintain a skinny public image inflict pain, suffering, and avoidable debilitating mental and physical disease on themselves. The brain MUST be properly nourished to function correctly.

    Headaches are proof positive that you are doing something seriously wrong

    Do NOT turn off the flashing red alarm - Understand the cause and correct it

    Do NOT take addictive drugs that themselves have debilitating side effects

    Michele Bachman is a perfect unhealthy role model of what NOT to do

    Consider this particular example. For two and a half years, Dave Dziok was Michele Bachmann's press secretary. He had to constantly put the best spin he could on her Big Lies, when she was caught again and again. It was frustrating for Dave. He could not get her to change and start speaking only the truth. Dziok's departure triggered a debilitating migraine medical episode that landed Michele in urgent care. "Within 24 hours she was in the hospital."

    WHEN thousands (or a million) Americans are killed in the next major terrorist attack (due to Homeland Security budget cuts, and ongoing refusal to implement biometric security), do you want our military Commander In Chief to have to be rushed to a hospital and heavily drugged, due to a debilitating stress-related migraine headache?

    Instead of treating her migraine symptoms with drugs, the proper solution for Michele Bachmann would have been to come clean, tell the truth, and spend the rest of her life NOT bearing false witness. Instead, Bachmann prefers to habitually lie and stay in the public scrutiny of a dishonest radical politician, who has never gotten one of her bills passed through Congress. It is truly amazing that anyone at all supports her endless Big Lies. Gullible fools love her because she claims to be a Christian, but the truth is that she obviously is NOT.

     

    Squanderlust Prosperity-Theology Materialistic Conspicuous Consumption

    In the days of early American pioneers, the term "consumer" had a very-strong negative connotation. The original definition for "consume" was: To spend or use up wastefully; Squander; Destroy (as in: Fire consumed the forest); Devour; Gluttonous excess leading to drunkenness and obesity. Food was scarce and seasonal in those days. "Consumers" were ostracized by the local community. Ben Franklin wrote: "Waste not want not." His frequent message for early-American shared prosperity was based on frugality, which was essential for survival of the local community.

    Today, the exact opposite is true. Prosperity Theology has convinced many selfish people (religious or not) that they have the right to become oppressively wealthy - at the expense of other humans and our delicately-balanced ecosystem environment.

    The word "squander" (one of the primary definitions of a "consumer") is to spend or use resources recklessly. Shakespeare wrote the word "squander" in his 1593 "Merchant of Venice." "Squander-bug" became a popular British symbol of reckless extravagance and waste during 1943 war-time resource shortages. Consumers were very unpatriotic.

    In America, Louis Ludlow coined "squanderlust" in 1935 to represent our unquenchable tendency to be extremely wasteful and inefficient with finite resources. The word "lust" is a sinful unhealthy selfish appetite. A consumer was considered by the majority to be an evil person. Caring communities tried to suppress consumers who squandered their essential resources.

    Today, America's entire economy is based on squanderlust materialistic consumerism. Just take a look at any landfill for a mountain of unnecessary waste of resources.

    When the economy begins to decline, U.S. Presidents encourage consumers to go out and spend more money to prop up our sagging economy. "Consumer confidence" is a measure of near-future business-and-tax revenues. A confident consumer is one who believes that the lust for wasteful squandering is a GOOD thing to do.

    Entrepreneurial venture-capital investments, and lending practices, are heavily based on the anticipation of future positive consumer sentiment. Consumer are no longer ashamed to be one.

    Advertising is designed specifically to INCREASE SQUANDERLUST, which it does very well in a greedy "love of money", "I'm worth more than you are" society. Wasteful conspicuous consumption and sparkly status symbols are primary capitalistic goals for a meaningless self-serving life of unsustainable oppressive behavior.

    Plain-and-simple Will Rogers became the most popular country-boy Hollywood movie star during the Great Depression. Will said:
    "Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like."
    "If advertisers spent the same amount of money on improving their products as they do on advertising, then they wouldn't have to advertise them."

    American greedy squanderlust materialistic consumerism is the SOURCE of our suicidal situation, NOT the solution that economists say it is.

     

    Knee-Jerk Big-Oil Tea Party Politics Makes Our Rapidly-Declining Nation Even Worse

    As if the above TRUTH about American inequality of income is not already bad enough, when the Republicans took control of the House of Representatives in 2011, they passed Representative Ryan’s Radical Road To Ruin budget proposal for 2012 that would reduce Medicare benefits, and increase the out-of-pocket Medicare cost for the elderly, disabled, and poor from $6,000 per year to over $12,000 (up to $20,000) per year, SO they could give a $200,000 per year tax cut (from Bush’s 35% down to only 25%) for people making over a million dollars a year. Corruption, elite greed, and oppression have now spiraled way out of control – with riots and total economic collapse very near (and almost unavoidable).

    Modern self-serving Republicans want to badly contribute to $14 Trillion deficit by lowering taxes on their wealthy supporters, and destroying the voice of the declining middle class. They are anxious to continue the oppression of the Reagan / Bush era. After winning control of the House of Representative in November 2010, arrogant Republicans insisted that Obama break his most-important 2008 campaign promise and extend the Bush / Cheney tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires.

    Reagan dropped the income tax for the wealthiest 2% from 70% down to 50%. He proclaimed that the 20% tax cuts would "trickle down" to the poor. The documented truth was that the rich got richer and the powerless poor got poorer. Reagan promised to balance the budget. In fact, he created the largest deficit in history. Reagan said that lowering taxes for the rich would increase jobs and tax revenues. The exact opposite happened. Unemployment spiraled to the highest since The Great Depression.

    Congress argued over a 4% income tax difference. During the Clinton Administration, the highest tax rate had fallen from Reagan's 50% down to only 39%, AND WE HAD A BUDGET SURPLUS! When Bush / Cheney lowered income taxes for the richest Americans to 35%, they created the largest deficit in history (just like senile inept Reagan had done). TRICKLE DOWN ECONOMICS IS CLEARLY ONE OF THE BIGGEST GREEDY POLITICAL LIES EVER TOLD, and Tea Party voters are still buying this obvious oppressive Big Lie today.

    The ridiculous Ryan Republican 2012 budget that the House passed on April 15, 2011, slashes the top income tax bracket for billionaires down to only 25%. Like the Big Bad Liars Reagan and Bush / Cheney, sinister Republicans promise that it will trickle down to the poor, create new jobs, and help balance the budget. It is amazing that any person could buy this absolute proven BIG BAD POLITICAL PARTISAN LIE.

    The top 400 wage earners in America (some making over a billion dollars a year) used tax loopholes, expensive tax lawyers and accountants to pay an average of only 16% income tax. Warren Buffet complained that his own secretary had to pay a higher tax rate than he did (for his billions in capital gains at only 15%).

    When Representative Ryan went home to Wisconsin town hall meetings, his own Republicans BOOed his obvious corruption. He has been bought and paid for by big corporations, and his constituents now know it for sure.

    The new Republican Wisconsin governor had stolen the right to collective bargaining from state employees, and unilaterally reduced promised salaries, pensions and healthcare. This resulted in demonstrations at the State Capitol that were much larger than any Tea Party rally in the USA. The clear 2011 Republican strategy is to: (1) shift the tax burden from the rich to the declining middle class, and (2) destroy labor unions that provided a major portion of the funding that elected Obama in 2008.

    Representative Ryan began his misleading deception with a true statement (as most good liars usually do). He accurately said that 2 / 3 of new jobs are created by small businesses. Then he began his incremental deception. Ryan said that taxing millionaires and billionaires at the 39.6% rate Clinton-era rate would destroy jobs in America. TOTALLY FALSE. America prospered during the Clinton era. Balanced spending and taxes resulted in a budget surplus. The rich continued to get rich and create new jobs. When Ryan said that 2 / 3 of new jobs were created by small businesses, he intentionally FAILED to mention that 98% of the job-creating business make less than $250,000 and WOULD BE UNEFFECTED BY INCREASING INCOME TAX BY ONLY 4% ON AMERICAN MILLIONAIRES AND BILLIONAIRES!

    Warren Buffet, Bill Gates and many others say that they do not need such economy-damaging tax breaks.

    After the November 2010 landslide election, Republicans FALSELY claimed that the nation wants lower taxes for billionaires. This Is Yet Another Very Big Lie.

    April 2011, ABC News / Washington Post poll documented that 72% of Americans support raising taxes on people with incomes over $250,000 per year. Even the MAJORITY of Republicans polled agreed - They support President Obama on this critical issue.

    The very-corrupt Republican House of Representatives voted against what most of the constituents who elected them want them to do! All but 4 Republican Senators voted AGAINST the documented opinion of their constituents.

    "The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other. The one that's out always looks the best." - Will Rogers

    America is in for yet another unstable round of endless knee-jerk bad partisan politics, as our economy continues to collapse, and become even more unequal.

     

    Is this what YOU want to leave as our nation's future legacy?

    Will your children and grandchildren appreciate your suicidal legacy of greedy self destruction?

    Is voting for Republican OR Democrat politics-as-usual ever going to make this never-ending ongoing organized crime spree go away?

    Bush / Cheney started an unjustified war in Iraq, based on bald-faced lies about non-existent weapons of mass destruction - Absolute Truth!

    Oil industry profits skyrocketed (Cheney's Halliburton stock options soared in value), and the pump price of gasoline hit $4 per gallon, bankrupting America.

    America Thrives On Bribes, UNTIL the predictable crises created by endless ongoing government corruption begin.

    Republican war criminals drove our economy into a ditch, and then insane non-learning voters (led by Tea Party funding from evil Ruppert Murdoch and the greedy Koch brothers oil profiteers) gave the keys to the 2011 House of Representatives back to the oil-industry-corrupted Republication criminals who created the 2001 - 2008 Great American Recession. This is way beyond INSANE - It was SUICIDAL! 2011 House Resolution 1 cut funding for 200,000 American jobs. Arrogant supremely-evil House Speaker John Boehner said: "So be it."

    A huge double-dip second Great Depression is now very close at hand. It MUST be worse than 2008. In 2011, our future is foretold, and made worse by, economic collapse and violent unrest in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. These problems did not exist during the 2008 economic collapse Great Recession. It now appears that the worst is yet to come (very soon).

    Remember, America began to go bankrupt when gasoline hit $4 / gallon in the summer of 2008. Do you think 2011 gasoline pump prices will trigger a serious problem.

    The price of gasoline from March 2010 until March 2011 increased more than 25%, and many food prices increased 50%, while American net income fell.

    Our current irrational unsustainable gluttonous lifestyle and current trends toward unavoidable collapse MUST impact us soon!

    Are we prepared for the predictable perilous future? Should we correct our current course?

    At first glance, most naive Americans want to DENY that collapse is even possible. They say:
    "America is recovering - Our government will protect us - We'll be just fine soon."

    Are you betting your family's future life on this incorrect, non-learning self-deception?

     

    A Third Party In 2012?

    Anyone who is an unskeptical staunch supporter of either Republicans or Democrats is a non-learning fool with selective memory and a short little span of attention. BOTH parties are driving America toward a cataclysmic collapse, and the destruction of every good thing that USA once stood for.

    The list of Presidential candidates (Republican and Democrat) looks abysmal in 2011. Popular NY Times author Thomas Friedman admitted that he voted for Obama's hope for change in 2008, but won't make that mistake again. Obama's 2008 level of political support can NEVER happen again. America now knows for certain that inept, dishonest, compromising Obama can NOT deliver his campaign promises, even with a two-year super majority in the House and Senate in 2009 and 2010.

    The only way Obama could be re-elected in 2012 would be if Republicans and the Tea Party continue shooting themselves in the foot with machine guns (which they are pretty good at doing). The prospect of another four years of Obama, or a new radical fanatical Republican President is frightening, when America's economy is already on the verge of total collapse.

    If America survives until 2013, we will need a rational administration and "can do" cooperative Congress with a shovel-ready rapid-implementation plan. Billionaire Ross Perot got nearly 20% of the vote as a third-party candidate for President. He said that: "A stable situation needs to be periodically cleaned out with a shovel."

    The Koch-brothers oil-corrupted radical right-wing Tea Party is NOT a viable solution. Addiction to unsustainable oil is one of America's very worst economic problems. Koch Tea Partiers would surely make inequity much worse, and hasten the collapse of America. If the Tea Party divides the Republican vote, Obama will win 2012, which is not what they want.

    Thomas Friedman says that America's two-party gridlocked political system is "a corrupt duopoly." Friedman says he would support a third-party Simpson / Bowles ticket for President. I could support almost anyone other than one of the current Republican, Democrat or Tea Party candidates. It would be a rare event if a third party candidate won in 2012.

    A third party probably cannot win in 2012, but America needs a new alternative to intensify the change-of-direction debate

    The alternatives that are on the table today are far too little, far too late, to prevent total government collapse in the near term

     

    Why do economic leaders impose apparently-suicidal unsustainable policies ?

    When bad policies produce declining results, why cling to failing status quo ?

    The science of why we are what we are today:

    All humans only hear what we want to hear. We cull out real world facts, knowledge, and experiences that might require us to change our invalid "stereotypes" and bad habits, and do or be something we would selfishly rather not.

    People with closed minds will not read things that disagree with what they WANT to believe is true.

    YOU would never read this hidden sentence, unless at least part of the above matched what you already believed before you saw this page for the very first time.

    Illiterate people cannot read at all. Literate people who do not read with an open mind, are no better than the non-learning illiterate.

    If we do not recognize a foreign language, OR foreign concepts, we tend to ignore them. This is mental laziness. We are too busy with declining business-as-usual than to be bothered. Only rare individuals investigate newly-discovered cultures, in order to learn their language, and unique knowledge that they have accumulated through the ages.

    Gene Roddenberry painted a popular science fiction picture where there was no poverty, and human motivation was exploration and new knowledge acquisition.

    The human brain has finite memory capacity. We MUST selectively remember ONLY the things that match our previous "stereotypes." "Abstraction" is the cognitive process of removing details from our memory of a complex object or experience. ALL human memory is based on incomplete abstract images. No two people remember the same event the same way.

    Abstraction leaves us with what we think is the essence of what will be of decision-making value in the future. The mental problem is that abstract stereotypes always oversimplify reality, and thus result in BAD future decisions, which are harmful to others, AND to ourselves.

    When we see or hear things that match our stereotypes, we permanently etch these reinforcing images into our minds. This is called "confirmation bias." Televangelists, pastors, preachers, politicians, advertisers, and all other types of con men heavily exploit human-nature confirmation bias. The appeal to what they think you WANT to hear and believe (not the scientific truth).

    Guilty sinners want to believe that their sins can be magically forgiven, so they can go and sin some more.

    Horny devils want to believe that the product being advertised will improve their sex life. It is not hard to exploit gullible fools.

    You can lead a fool to slaughter, but you cannot make him think or reason about who he follows, or why.

    When we experience the scientific truth that conflicts with our stereotypes, most humans tend to ignore and NOT remember it. If you believe Rush Limbaugh, Jim Inhofe and Koch-brothers-funded Tea Party people who say that "global warming is a hoax", then you will reject all modern scientific data to the contrary, and only hear what you want to hear, so you can continue burning unsustainable fossil fuels - pollution-as-usual.

    Abstract stereotypes are used by the brain for "pattern matching." The infant quickly learns to recognize its mother's face - the source of love, comfort, and nutrition.

    The brain finds recognizable patterns in raw random stimuli. During the days of analog televisions, some people saw poltergeists in the random black-and-white snow. Some Christians see the face of Jesus or Mary on a piece of toast. Ink-blot tests were used to bring out perceived mental images that were hidden in random images.

    Our neurons fire (making brain waves) at roughly ten times per second when we are at rest. When we dream at night, our brain tries to match these random nerve firing sequences to recognizable pattern-matching images from our past, weaving them into a fictional story line. We quickly forget most of our dreams, but some haunt people for a long time, and repeat again and again. Oddly enough, it is during rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep dreams that short-term daily memories in our hippocampus are consolidated with our long-term stereotypical memory. Abstract pattern matching is used to both store new memories, and to recognize new things that are similar to old remembered experiences.

     

    Less that a hundred years ago in the 20th century, American laws still instituted racial bias. Despite the defeat of the Confederate states in the Civil War, and the supposed abolition of slavery, many southern public schools continued to divide students by the color of their skin. Conservative Southern Christian Churches continued to teach racial bias in Sunday school. Buses, businesses, and bathrooms denied (or gave inferior) service to people because of their race. This inhumane insane bias was thought to be normal and acceptable by ethnocentric self-serving racial bigots who only hear what they wanted to hear, and deny God's Law of Equality: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal" - USA Declaration of Independence.

    20% of biased bigoted Americans STILL look for false excuses like: "Obama was not born in the USA" or "Obama is a Muslim who wants to destroy America" to hide their extreme racial bigotry. “They’ll never learn, You can’t teach a Sneech - Dr. Seuss

    If you falsely believe that another race is dumber than your own children, you will NOT give them equal education or career opportunities. This is NOT because of their DNA, but rather because of your own inaccurate stereotypical bigotry. If you think that other races commit more crime, you will concentrate them in neighborhoods where more crime exists, and pay dearly to incarcerate more of them in prison, where they become really-hardened criminals.

    The scientific evidence is irrefutable. The average Anglo-American has net worth of roughly $117,000. The average African-American and Hispanic-American citizens have net worth of roughly $6,000. Was this preordained by God in their DNA? Of course NOT!

    The only reason this inequality of income exists is because of denial of equal education and career opportunities, based on bigots only hearing what they want to hear, and total rejection of the truth. This obsolete self-fulfilling racial bias from one generation to the next is the result of non-learning cultures that have refused to change their abstract stereotypes for thousands of years. They prefer to ignore the wonderful contributions to society that people of other skin colors have made to the world. Poor people do NOT need welfare checks that make them more dependent on welfare. They need equal education and career opportunities, in a world that has a universal safety net, and motivation to improve one's own self respect.

    If you believe that the Tea Party is good, you will watch Rupert Murdock's Fox News. If you think that The Tea Party was destroying America in 2011, you will ignore Fox News, unless you are looking for ammunition to use against the Tea Party.

    If you disagree with me, then I'm right and you're wrong (tongue-in-cheek chuckle).

    Prospect Theory describes human decisions between alternatives that involve risk (those with uncertain outcomes), where the probabilities are believed to be knowable. Prospect Theory attempts to understand the choices that are made in the real world, in contrast to optimal decisions that a rational / thoughtful person would make.

    Behavioral Economics uses social, cognitive and emotional factors to model the poor decisions of individuals, institutions and governments responsible for economic decisions, including consumers, borrowers, investors and regulators, and the impact on market prices, returns and the resource allocation. The price of any equity (like stock) is determined more by inaccurate human perception than by scientific economic facts.

    Behavioral Economics is primarily concerned with the limitations of human rationality (selfishness, greed, corruption, versus logic, planning for the future and self-control). Behavioral models attempt to integrate insights from psychology with economic theory.

    Behavioral Analysts are not only concerned with the effects of market decisions but also with public choice, which describes another source of economic decisions with related bias that promotes self-interest.

    Cognitive Bias is a form of evolved / adaptive (sometimes irrational) mental behavior. A Cognitive Bias is a pattern of deviation in judgment that occurs in particular (stressful) situations. The deviation occurs when the judgment of people changes outside of a familiar context, or when elevated risk or rapid change result in unreasonable suboptimal (sometimes self-destructive) decisions.

    Panic is one such example. A bad reaction to unthinkable trauma can result in a worse outcome than rational thought and a cool head.

    In military basic training, young soldiers are placed in extremely-stressful situations and taught to not panic, but to do what is best for the survival of the team. Rarely, soldiers die during basic training, but those who learn to control their youthful Cognitive Bias (and not panic) are better prepared for possible battlefield realities, which saves their own life, and those of their loyal team member friends. Such anti-panic training should be mandatory for economic leaders, but sadly it is not. Irrational emotion rules during a catastrophic crisis that had been ignored for decades.

    Heuristics are intuitive, common-sense, “rules of thumb” / “educated guesswork” for plausible reasoning in familiar situations. Heuristics are experience-based techniques for problem solving, learning, discovery, and rapid decision making, when time is of the essence. Heuristic methods are used to accelerate the process of finding an acceptable (sometimes suboptimal) solution, where exhaustive search, comprehensive investigation, and complex logic are impractical.

    Heuristics are Abstractions that remove from consideration levels of detail that are thought to be unnecessary for a “good enough” practical problem solution. Heuristics are strategies that use readily-accessible, though loosely-applicable, familiar business-as-usual logic to simplify rapid problem solving by humans (and in the lock-step IF-THEN-ELSE computer CASE logic that flawed humans program – creating many software bugs).

    The obvious limitation of Abstract Heuristics that were developed in one situation may NOT be appropriate in another context – resulting in bad (sometimes deadly) decisions. If as a child I learned that I could jump across a creek, I may not be able to safely jump across it - when it is raging with flood water.

    Heuristics are situational. It is dangerous to try to apply an Abstract Heuristic developed in a familiar situation to a very-different unpredicted context. “What goes up must come down” is true in some situations, but not in others. Flat Earth thinking is effective in many small-scale decision-making processes, but a Flat Earth assumption is useless and misleading if you want to put a communications satellite in orbit, or defend against a huge asteroid impact. Obsolete instinctive dinosaur heuristics led to their extinction. Adaptability is essential to decision-making sustainable survival.

    Cognitive Bias (which is based on inappropriate use of an Abstract Heuristic) explains many self-deceptive effects in flawed human thought processes. This can lead to (1) Perceptual Distortion, (2) Illogical Interpretation, or (3) Suicidal Inaccurate Judgment.

    Multiple bad bias phenomena are studied in Cognitive Sciences, Social Psychology and Behavioral Economics.

    The eye sees what it wishes to see. We have selective memory – We reject things that cause Cognitive Dissonance outside of our Intellectual Environmental Comfort Zone  

    People with a strong ethnocentric (“I’m right and you are always wrong”) oversimplified Stereotypical Bias (bigotry) will fool themselves into believing whatever they already want to believe. They often reject factual evidence to the contrary and distort their own perception of the truth - to see things that may or may not be true from the perspective of others.

    When ten people observe the same unexpected traumatic or catastrophic event, they will often have ten different interpretations and recollections – some of which are totally false, illogical, or mutually exclusive with other observers’ opinions. A polygraph (lie detector) test may show that they believe that what they remember is true (when it is not). The truth is that they believe what they want to be true, not what they actually saw.

    A Rare Black SwanIf you have proclaimed that: “All swans are white”, the discovery of a rare unexpected Black Swan causes uncomfortable Cognitive Dissonance. It lowers your credibility and believability. You would rather lie than be proven wrong by scientific facts. You may try to discredit those who claim to have seen a black swan.

    If your paycheck depends on petroleum sales and subsidies, then you will likely doubt that petroleum is unsustainable in the short term. And, you will reject scientific evidence that burning dirty oil is damaging Earth’s delicate climate. If you believe that the Bible or Pope are infallible, you will overlook many overwhelming self-contradictions.

    If your lifetime savings are tied up in U.S. dollar-based assets, you will reject the fact that the dollar lost 82% of its value (relative to gold) in the last decade. You will fool yourself into thinking that accumulating dollars is a good thing to do (when it clearly is not). You will hold fast to the belief that collapse cannot happen in America (as it is now doing elsewhere). You fail to prepare for, or try to prevent, the predictable.

    Normalcy Bias refers to a mental state that people enter when facing an unthinkable disaster. It causes people to underestimate both the possibility of the disaster occurring, and its potential impact on their family’s future. This often results in situations where the majority of people fail to prepare for a clearly-predictable disaster, and on a larger scale, the failure of the government to include the populace in its disaster preparations.

    Ostrich Effect - No Worries Down UnderNormalcy Bias is also known as the Ignorance Is Bliss or "Ostrich-Head-in-the-Sand Effect" – Ignore science and predictable reality, cover your eyes and ears, and don’t worry about covering your own rear end – Ignoring facts makes them go away, doesn't it?

    For most people who lack powers of observation and skeptical critical thinking skills, business-as-usual, unchanging status quo is “normal.” They wake up thinking what they did yesterday will be sufficient for whatever may happen today. It has always worked before, why not one more day or year?

    This may work adequately when things are going well, and no abnormal exceptions occur, but most people still cling to their status quo view of what is “normal” - even when business-as-usual is declining. They ignore clear warning signs, qualified prophets, and well-established predictable trends that lead toward an avoidable catastrophe that they have never experienced before, or falsely believe to be “impossible.” They listen to those who support their inaccurate bias, and ignore whatever proven scientists and economists say. This is the nature of bipartisan politics – Believe your bias – Reject the truth.

     

    Once people decide to ignore particular warning signals, they continue to ignore them as the warning signs grow worse and worse. Having proclaimed that “Climate change is a political hoax”, they ignore and reject the growing body of overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary (e.g. Rush Limbaugh, oil-corrupted Senator Jim Inhofe, et.al.).

    Elephant in the room - U.S. Dollar CollapseElephant in the Room Effect refers to an obvious truth that is being blindly ignored. It applies to an unthinkable predictable problem that no one wants to invest their Political Capital to prevent or even discuss in a rational way.

    Having accumulated many U.S. dollars, virulently ignorant fools want to believe that the dollar cannot possibly collapse. They strive to selfishly accumulate as many dollars as they can, without concern for those that they injure along the way.

    In stark contrast, those open-minded people who can see the clear warning signs of the collapse of the currency and their inept government economic policies, will strive to develop mutually-supportive friends in a local tribe who may help them survive if (when) a major economic collapse does occur.

    The current trend toward major economic collapse is similar to the proverbial metaphor of Boiling A Frog – if you slowly raise the temperature of water containing a frog, the frog will allow itself to be boiled to death, whereas if you raise the temperature quickly, the frog will kick hard and find a way to escape. The collapse of a nation’s currency may start out slow, but then accelerate rapidly when it is too late to reverse it.

    In stark contrast to clinging to declining status quo as “normal”, continual change is normal for leading-edge research scientists. They wake up each morning thinking: “I wonder what new counter intuitive thing I will encounter today? What will my next experiment discover about what I once thought was true? How will today’s discoveries change the world tomorrow?”

    Good open-minded scientific research is provisional. It changes every month as new discoveries are continually made.

    Compare this to past-peak business-as-usual, which declines until bankruptcy eliminates alternatives for prevention, mitigation, or reversal. By tolerating decline, we encourage it.


    Will Rogers“It isn't what we don't know that gives us trouble, it's what we know for sure that just ain't so” – Will Rogers (Great Depression movie star and political satirist – Will was very popular with Democrats and Republicans) “It's easy being a humorist when you've got the whole government working for you.” . . . “If I studied all my life, I couldn't think up half the number of funny things passed in one session of Congress.”

    Will was referring to the outrageously-ridiculous failed Congressional attempts to correct The Great Depression, which THEY created.

    If excess deficit spending creates a crisis, tax breaks for billionaires and more borrowing is NOT going to correct the crisis – More of the same stupidity obviously makes things much worse. Forever increasing the national debt limit is worse than insane – it is economic suicide. Today’s Congress is not any smarter or less corrupt than the self-serving Great Depression Congress of Will Rogers time.

    Foolishly ignoring the clear warnings about Hurricane Katrina led to at least 1,836 deaths. A category-5 hurricane had been predicted for decades, but those who died in 2005 refused to think that Katrina would kill them, even when it was close to making landfall.

    New Orleans Hurricane Katrina Levee Failure

    The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers refused to provide levees capable of dealing with a long-predicted cat-5 hurricane. They provided a protection system that worked 90% of the time, but obviously NOT during Katrina when 83 LEVEES FAILED. The hurricane brought in a predicted 30-foot-high storm surge (larger than the 25-foot tsunami that inundated Japan in 2011).

    Suicidal humans refuse to think about the predictable unthinkable. Those who were responsible for New Orleans levee design and funding should have gone to federal prison for manslaughter and dereliction of duty. The Katrina deaths were totally avoidable, EXCEPT for status-quo human Normalcy Bias.

    Normalcy Bias falsely assumes that since individuals have never experienced such a disaster, then it cannot-or-will-not occur, despite all scientific warnings to the contrary.

    Normalcy Bias also contributes to people not being able to cope with a predictable disaster after it begins. People with a Normalcy Bias have great difficulty reacting to something they have not experienced before. Even after the New Orleans levees broke, intransigent people continued to falsely believe that badly-mismanaged FEMA or the National Guard would save them – They were WRONG, and thus they died needlessly. The Bush/Cheney administration buried their head in the sand and ignored nearly 2,000 people who perished without any compassionate assistance. Tens of thousands suffered for many days, due to inadequate, non-caring, unprepared lack of reasonable compassionate assistance, caused by deadly Normalcy Bias.

    People tend to interpret warning signals in the most-optimistic non-disruptive “normal” way possible, seizing on any ambiguities or gray areas to mindlessly infer a less-serious potential future that matches their conservative understanding of what they WANT “normal” to be (not what is likely to happen from a rational point of view).

    Those who profit from fossil fuels only need to pay a few corrupt scientists to inject minimal doubt into public opinion, to exploit the flawed Normalcy Bias in most myopic mediocre minds. Status quo is much easier than thinking about the unthinkable.

    Politicians always promise that their plans will make things better, when they rarely do. Reagan promised to balance the budget – his administration created more national debt than any before. Bush / Cheney promised to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, but they increased more than any other administration is history. Elected officials are political puppets who are “owned” by those who bribe them with campaign donations. You should take time to peak behind the curtain of endless lies – Follow the money.

    Widely advertising Big Impossible Lies does not make them true. The fact that the mindless mediocre majority believe political lies does not make them less false.

    Ignoring facts does not make them go away. Voters are easily misled by habitual liars who pay for propaganda that supports their own inaccurate selfish bias. Any politician who gets elected must understand how to hide his biggest lies effectively. Selfish, greedy corruption has brought our government and economy to the brink of catastrophic immediate collapse – with almost no way or will to prevent it at this late date.

     

    Will the corrupt Congress that created our current crises quickly correct them?

    Obama promised to roll back the 2001-2003 Bush tax cuts for those making over $250,000 per year, so wealthy people would return to the tax rates during the Bill Clinton administration, when USA had a Budget Surplus. BUT, the corrupt, unaccountable, 2010 lame-duck Congress EXTENDED the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, selfishly placing more deficit- spending burden on the declining middle class, and on our innocent grandchildren. Obama promised to cut the budget deficit in half - instead he doubled it.

     

    WE CANNOT CONTINUE BORROWING OVER 40% OF EVERY DOLLAR WE SPEND ! ! !
    We cannot keep borrowing money to make the minimum payment on our national credit card
    We cannot keep printing worthless fiat dollars forever, and spending them for imports

    Which part of "SUICIDAL" do corrupt politicians and non-learning voters not understand ?

    America used to borrow heavily from China, Japan, and OPEC. Japan is now in financial meltdown crisis mode.
    After the March 2011 disaster in Japan, can they continue to loan USA money for our irrational deficit spending? N O !
    Many OPEC nations are experiencing their own internal financial revolutions, and riots of their oppressed citizens.
    Exporting countries like China, India, and Saudi Arabia are dumping their declining U.S. dollars, leading to its collapse.
    The U.S. Treasury Department says that since October 2011, China has been reducing their purchase of U.S. Treasury bills.
    The cost for USA to borrow money is going to sharply increase relatively soon, as the Fed prints mountains of worth-less dollars.
    When the purchasing power of our worthless dollar completely collapses, our children will not be able to import anything.

    The Coin of the Realm, and it's role in the Collapse of Great Empires

    Values and contents of US Gold and Silver Coins
    Today's U.S. Dollars are worth-less ILLEGAL
    UNCONSTITUTIONAL COUNTERFEITS of the above

    dollar bill, legal tender for all debts? U.S. Constitution Article I, Section 10: “No State shall … coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.”

    The U.S. government wisely obeyed the Constitution written contract with the people and did NOT print worthless "fiat currency" paper money UNTIL after the Civil War. In order to pay off the huge debt created by the senseless deadly conflict over immoral slavery, federal government THIEVES began printing paper currency, which illegally stole property value from all holders of U.S. assets.

    Something very similar happened with the huge devaluation of the U.S. dollar following the 600% energy-price inflation caused by the 1973 – 1979 OPEC oil embargoes. AND by unsustainable fiscally-irresponsible Bush / Cheney deficit-spending policies, unjustified oil-related war in Iraq, and widespread corporate-and-banking deregulation, which led to $4 / gallon gasoline, recessionary bankruptcies, unemployment, mortgage foreclosures, and the $15 Trillion American economic collapse of 2008.

    When the average U.S. pump price of gasoline hit $3.70 per gallon in April 2011 (rapidly approaching the $4 price that caused the crash of 2008), Steve Moore of the Wall Street Journal said that the inflation rate of gasoline and food in America was 30%-to40%. Steve pointed out that Ben Shalom Bernanke continued to fly in the face of the Truth and falsely testify before Congress that inflation was near zero. Bernanke belongs in federal prison for perjury and gross mismanagement of extremely-inflationary monetary policy. Bernanke facilitates corrupt government policies, and the Department of Justice is not about to prosecute his many ongoing crimes of corruption.

    Helicopter Ben Bernanke Cartoon Throwing Out Worthles Dollars

    It is as if no one in the federal government has been in a supermarket or gas station recently. They say that they want consumer inflation to be zero to keep voters happy with their declining salaries. BUT, wishing for the impossible does not make it so. The government really wants to pay back our $14 Trillion USD debt with dollars that are worth far less than what they borrowed. This is the same thing as when the 1973-to-1979 OPEC Oil Embargoes drove gasoline price up 600% in only six years (and the price of almost everything, as the value of the dollar rapidly declined).

    IF the government ever tells the truth about the inflation that their counterfeit money has caused, they will be required by law to significantly increase Social Security payments, and eventually the interest paid on $14 Trillion of insane American deficit-spending debt. GOVERNMENT HAS POWERFUL MOTIVATION TO CONTINUE TO LIE WHEN CONFRONTED WITH THE OBVIOUS TRUTH.

    No government can avoid the consequences of the Truth by telling bigger and bigger endless lies.

    Ignoring or denying documented scientific and economic facts does not make them go away.

    Corrupt politics and fiscal irresponsibility can have a serious worldwide impact!

    America's founding fathers understood this very well, and provided for it in the Constitution:

    Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution provides for: “the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States”

    The Fifth Amendment of the Bill of Rights states: “No person shall be ... deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

    It is a crime for the government to counterfeit its own currency. Power corrupts. Power changes people. Power is addictive. Those in power often give up most of their previous promises and rational behavior to retain control. Power over the currency is corruption-as-usual theft of private property for fiscally-irresponsible public use without just compensation.

    Current U.S. government counterfeiting of non-gold-or-silver coins and currency (especially accelerated during the last decade of Bush + Obama + Bernanke) is an unconstitutional crime that should be firmly punished according to the original written contract between the people and the government - established by the wisdom of the USA founding fathers. Today's government printing of worth less U.S. dollars and digital bits in bank account computers is the deadly domain of organized-crime mobsters (elected by a vote of the people).

    If you accept counterfeit currency as payment for your goods or services, you are a victim of the crime of stealing. Many people do it, but that does not make it any less of a crime.

    If you are holding counterfeit currency (no matter how you obtained it), the counterfeit currency may be confiscated without any compensation whatsoever to its holder. In today's electronic age, U.S. dollars can be instantly confiscated by merely erasing digital bits in a bank-or-stock-market computer, or by merely turning the computer system off. There is NO long-term security whatsoever in today's counterfeit currency.

    A government that acts as if it is above its own laws cannot survive for long. When the value of the people's currency collapses, so will the form of government. Revolution and anarchy may soon prevail if / when the U.S. dollar becomes essentially worthless. We are probably already well-past the tipping point of near-future total counterfeit currency collapse.

    Failure to enforce the original U.S. Constitution is a primary reason for the impending great collapse of corrupted criminal America.

    The sale of underground bunkers, and food that will last for years, has recently increased about 400%.

    What are you doing to prepare? Do you care? Will you do anything to help stop the insanity?

     

    The worst is predictably yet to come -
    The U.S. Dollar Is Driving Downward Toward Death's Door

    What can we learn from monetary system history? Can we mitigate the near-term disaster?

    One of the clear signals that a great empire is about to suddenly collapse
    catastrophically is the Rapid Devaluation of the underlying coin of the realm

    When a country cannot pay its people a living wage, the economy WILL go bankrupt

    Going Down The Dollar Black Hole

    Going Down The Dark Dollar Black Hole - FAST

     

    The average American income declined about $2,000 per year while Bush / Cheney were in office
    AND the USD dollar purchasing power dropped to less than one half
    , slashing the standard of living for almost everyone

    If you were making $50,000 per year in 2001, your before-tax income may have fallen below $48,000 per year,
    which is worth today less than 18% of what it was worth in 2001, relative to the price of the gold standard.
    At the same time, the price of food, fuel, etc. have significantly increased - USA standard of living badly declined.

    Let's suppose that you wisely paid attention to the 2001 predictions of the the declining U.S. dollar,
    and you negotiated compensation from your employer to be paid in a fixed weight of gold.

    When gold was worth $250 / ounce, $50,000 per year would be 200 ounces of gold per year.

    IF you continued to receive 200 ounces of gold per year for the last ten years (with no promotions),
    by the end of 2010 you would have received the equivalent of $283,000 USD per year (200 ounces x $1415).
    With gold at $1540 / oz in Spring 2011, you would be making $308,000 USD per year.

    The 2011 value of gold is the same as 2001 - U.S. DOLLARS ARE OBVIOUSLY WORTH MUCH LESS.
    Spring 2011, the dollar was worth 16% of what it was when Bush took office, and
    only 1.3% of what is was before the 1973 OPEC oil embargoes began.

    There is almost no value remaining in the U.S. dollar -
    Can total monetary collapse and major revolution be far away ?

    Red Light STOP Signs are flashing as European and Middle East nations collapse.
    Will America be any different soon ?

    Highly-productive Americans are willing to work hard for reasonable compensation, BUT
    only a complete FOOL will continue to work for rapidly-declining worthless U.S. dollars,
    when a $100 bill won't buy a gallon of milk or a loaf of bread.

    The difference between $308K and $48K ($260,000) is what U.S. dollar counterfeiting is STEALING from
    YOU every year
    - IF you still have a $48K job - But millions of Americans have lost their jobs and homes.

    Where is the public outrage? Radical reinvention of the unconstitutional American government is long overdue.

    If your salary did not increase 18% PER YEAR, you are the victim of extreme government corruption..

    How long will you tolerate government criminals stealing from the mouths of YOUR own children?

    Are you satisfied with today? How low will you allow YOUR family's standard of living to go, before you take action?

    Patriots must be prepared to protect their nation against evil government
    - Or do YOU foolishly think that the insane arsonists who started our current fires will put them all put in time?

     

    Historical Fact: When the currency of the realm predictably collapses, radical / difficult-to-predict things must happen rapidly

    In 1927, capitalistic democratic German manufacturing was at its post-war high. But, by September 1930, the worldwide Great Depression caused 3,000,000 Germans to be unemployed. Manufacturing fell to 17% of 1927. Farmers could not afford to produce enough food for the starving masses. Bankruptcies soared. Tax revenues plummeted.

    THE CURRENCY COLLAPSED. Hindenburg’s government of profiteering capitalist aristocrats could not provide basic services. The middle class became impoverished. Less-than-1% of the greedy elite withheld the benefits of their accumulated wealth from the starving majority.

    Profiteering capitalism and democracy completely failed - Opening the door very-wide for Big Lies from madman Adolf Hitler.

    According to Stalinist dogma, a crisis in capitalism (and the related great suffering) will produce a rise in class consciousness among starving working people, and result in Justified Revolution. Adolf Hitler and Fascists rapidly gained widespread public support.

    In 1930, Germany’s parliamentary coalition fell apart, and Hitler's National Socialist Party won big in the elections.

    Hitler appeared to be truly devoted to Germany. He was a sincere nationalist and, in addition to being obsessed by what he saw as enemies within Germany and foreign enemies, Hitler identified well with conservative ethnocentric German racist bigots in the abstract. He created photo ops showing his love of innocent children, and those adults who supported his radical political views (who were in his eyes the “real Germans“).

    Adolf Hitler Posing With An Innocent Little Girl Priests Salute hitler

    Adolf Hitler's greatest support came from simple-minded
    CONSERVATIVE Christian small-town racial religious bigots

    Hitler gained the support of Christian leaders by claiming that Jews were "Christ Killers"
    This was his justification for the ghastly holocaust
    Christian young men herded Jewish families onto cattle cars, where they were taken to their death

    In a somewhat similar manner, Dick Cheney fabricated lies about non-existent weapons of mass destruction
    and non-existent connections between al Qaeda and Iran - to falsely justify ghastly killing of Iranians
    (including innocent women and children), AND American soldiers - Cheney claimed that he
    "made no mistakes", and gullible conservative Christians STILL pay to hear this war criminal lie

    Throughout human history, there have always been selfish ethnocentric FOOLS who are convinced that
    they are always right, and everyone else is always wrong, regardless of overwhelming FACTS to the contrary.

    There are many false religions in the world. MINE is the only true path to God. - Heil Hitler!
    Ethnocentric religious bigotry gave a madman "ethnic cleansing" power to kill 6 million innocent souls
    It was many times worse than throwing Christian families to the lions in the Roman Coliseum

    Anyone claiming exclusive direct access to God's will should be immediately imprisoned as a felon

    In John 8:44, Jesus explained the motivation of the arrogant religious leaders who would eventually crucify him:
    For you are the children of your evil father. You love to do the things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning.
    He has always hated the Truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character;
    for the evil one is a liar and the father of all lies. - Where do YOU think today's Big Political Lies come from?

    Gullible fools reject scientific proof and insist that the universe is 6,000 years old. They believe that every species living today was on Noah's Arc. They know for certain that the Earth is flat and immobile - fixed on its foundation. They persecuted accurate scientists with excellent powers of observation (like Galileo) who suggested that Earth rotates and revolves around the Sun. What mindless followers of endless Big Lies these religious bigots be.

    If morons can blindly support a madman's genocidal holocaust, then morons can justify anything as being God's TRUTH

    They believe the great unsustainable fossil-fuel industry DEADLY BIG LIE that "Global Warming Is A Hoax"

    When Hitler published his "Mein Kampf" manifesto, it was widely accepted by rural Christians. Most prosperous urban Jew's thought that Hitler's radical anti-Semite thinking was a temporary anomaly, and that Germany would return to "normal" soon. Their Normalcy Bias prevented them from noticing the raging Elephant in the Room. A small number of intelligent Jews (like Albert Einstein) saved themselves by leaving the country, but the vast majority were so attached to their businesses, homes, and wealth that they remained until it was too late - and were sadly exterminated in Hitler's genocidal holocaust, just because of their religious heritage.

    The irrational tricks that one's mind plays can lead to a severe catastrophe

    We are surrounded by irrational insanity every day - Is majority opinion always correct?

    Gullible FOOLS apparently even believe that professional wrestling is real. (smile)

    Christian Wrestling Federation - The children of proud redneck bigots love it

    Christian Wrestling Federatiomn

    The word "Christian" means one who follows the teachings of Jesus Christ

    If Jesus returned today, would He kick His opponent on His TV wresting show ?

    Religious bigots fill their children's minds with PURE CRAP !
    (Exactly as it was in the days when Jesus walked the Earth as a man)

    Most non-learning humans are at least as dumb today as they were 2,000 years ago

    They accept big lies from maniacs - Like Christian conservatives who saluted "Heil Hitler"

     

    Popular culture like wrestling, greedy reality shows, and pornography
    document the current immoral state of illiterate American society -
    We live in a failing "Empire of Illusion" - making many bad lifestyle choices

     

    Imagine a time when men, women, and children filled the huge Roman Coliseum

    Thrill-seeking families were there to be entertained. Christian families were huddled hugging each other in the arena, praying to Jesus for their heavenly salvation. The Christians' only crime was in believing a young man who taught them to love one another, turn the other cheek, and share what little they had.

    And then, the arena floor opens up. Abused hungry dogs, bears, boars, lions or tigers run up ramps, and slaughter the Christians - Tearing them limb from limb, and eating them alive, as they scream and their life blood explodes from their bodies. The titillated crowd cheers in pure delight. On the way home, Roman children say: "Please Mommy PLEASE may we come back next week and watch more Christians fed to the lions."

    This is based on written history from eye-witnesses to man's inhumanity to children. Our offspring learn that what their parents do is "good and proper behavior" for the future.

    It is not the steadfast martyred Christians that were injured. They have received their eternal reward in paradise. It was the children of the Roman citizens who's minds suffered irreparable damage at the hands of their own parents. What ghastly beasts the Romans became, just before their great empire collapsed from extreme internal corruption.

    Christians fed to lions in the Roman Coliseum

     

    If Jesus came back to Earth today:

    Would He be morbidly obese, wear red and white fur, smoke a pipe, tell us to drink caffeinated high-fructose corn syrup cola with cocaine, and threaten little children with invasion of their privacy and a lump of coal in their stocking, if they are not good little boys and girls?

    Santa Claus With Pipe

    Would Jesus be an expert marksman with His AK-47 and 30-round clip? Would He use deadly assault weapons to protect His Gilded Castle - Shooting starving peasants who try to steal from His overflowing storehouse of fattening food? Would He teach innocent children how to kill people that they don't like with a gun?

    Jesus teaching child to use a gun

    Would Jesus train an army of brave patriotic young solders to hate and kill foreign fellow men, women, and children - To gain control of their highly-polluting unsustainable oil? AND THEN, when the oil war is over, would Jesus leave His veterans homeless on the streets, missing limbs, with no marketable skills in a failing economy of profiteering greed and corruption? Would Jesus drive a gas-guzzling imported SUV with a hypocritical "Support Our Troops" bumper sticker?

    Homeless American Veteran

    If the above pictures offend you, is it because you are in complete denial of the Truth?

    Would you rather hide your head in the sand and arrogantly chant: "My belief system is the best in the world" ?

    American banks have foreclosed on over a million homes, which remain vacant today, since selling them at their true market value would look bad on the banks' cooked books, AND banks cannot find a way to rent these homes to homeless veterans, and other worthy U.S. citizens and families with starving children.

    Would the "Bank Of Jesus" beg for taxpayer bailouts, so their executives can make billions of dollars in bonuses? Would "Jesus Motors" beg for bailouts, and then use taxpayer funding to develop a new Corvette, and the fastest production sedan in the world? What is wrong with these ugly pictures?

    Do you live in a "Christian" nation?

    Does anyone in the USA have the first clue about the primary things that Jesus taught His disciples? Do you share your prosperity with your all of your neighbors?

    If the above mental images do not bring tears to your eyes, and shame about how evil ethnocentric arrogant religious bigots have become, THEN your unenlightened soul is completely dark, and you know absolutely nothing about the True Nature of the Loving Creator of the Universe.

     

    How deep is the selfish demonic deception ditch that we find ourselves in today ?

    We live in a world of greedy corporations, corrupt politicians, and $200 billion worth of deceptive dishonest American advertising each year. Entertaining advertisers clearly convince children and weak-minded adults to COVET many things that a rational person has no need of. The endless lies of quasi-religious pandering politicians fuel the fires of deadly hatred among the dumbest bigoted people on the face of the Earth.

    Will Rogers: "Advertising is the art of convincing people to spend money they don't have for something they don't need." . . . "If advertisers spent the same amount of money on improving their products as they do on advertising then they wouldn't have to advertise them."

    Those who listen to advertiser with great devotion, and who blindly do what they are told, seem to not only tolerate Big Lies - They Love and Reward Them !

    "They deceive themself and thus us; merchants and tycoons of the world. Evil has gone from bad to worse for a worthless reward." - James Dye

    "Men are so simple and so much inclined to obey immediate needs that a deceiver will never lack victims for his deceptions." - Niccolo Machiavelli

    Why are pretentious makeup, high fashion, and cosmetic surgery so popular today? We want to deceive ourselves, as well as others.

    "We are never deceived (by others); we deceive ourselves." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    "Who had deceived thee so often as thyself?" - Benjamin Franklin (the face on our $100 bill)

    If it is "Too Good To Be True" FOOLS WHO LACK SKEPTICISM BLINDLY BELIEVE IT TO BE TRUE !

    "Great liars are also great magicians." - Adolf Hitler

    Why are people entertained by the deception of actors and magicians,
    but irritated when they find things they buy are not as advertised?

    Ronald Reagan was an actor who could tell huge lies without blinking his eyes
    Those who believed his corrupted big business lies called him "The Great Communicator"

    "There's a sucker born every minute." - P. T. Barnum - R U 1?

    Have you ever been disappointed by someone you voted for?

    Adolf Hitler 1925 "Mein Kampf": "In the Big Lie (Große Lüge) there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the Big Lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate Colossal Untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying."

    Hitler's Primary Rules Were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently, enough people will sooner or later believe it.

    Abraham Lincoln: "You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time." (It is what keeps all politicians in office.)

    After starting a totally-unjustified O.I.L. war in Iraq over his own lies about non-existent weapons of mass destruction, Dick Cheney (an excellent practitioner of Adolf Hitler's primary Big Lie rules) emphatically said: "I made no mistakes. I have no regrets." Stupid voters then gave Cheney's Republicans the keys to the 2011 House. They passed a 2012 budget that would give millionaires a $200,000 tax cut by increasing out-of-pocket Medicare expense from $6,000 to over $12,000 for the poor, disabled, and elderly.

    Those that are deceived are easily swayed by any Big Lie preached from a racist religious pulpit that panders to their own self-deception bias.

    Some of them even gave cyanide to their own children and committed suicide, when the satanic murderer Jim Jones told them to do so from his "Christian" pulpit. The Taliban teaches 12-year-olds to strap on a bomb and die as a suicidal martyr for Allah (who commanded them to NOT Kill) - Moronic ethnocentric insanity!

    Human virulently-ignorant stupidity has always been common around the world.

    "Man's mind is so formed that it is far more susceptible to falsehood than to truth." - Desiderlus Erasmus

    When the Sunday school teach / nuclear engineer Jimmie Carter became president of America, he promised that he would never lie to us. So far as I know, he never did. He told the scientific Truth about our need to reduce our waste of unstable expensive imported petroleum that was bankrupting our nation in the 1970's. The big oil companies hated Carter's 8-year Energy Independence plan, and they paid to elect their corporate puppet Ronald Reagan. Voters PREFER politicians that tell them big lies, instead of those who speak the Truth. Reagan gave huge subsidies to oil companies and 20% tax cuts for millionaires. Cheney and Rumsfeld provided weapons of mass destruction to Saddam Hussein, that he used to gas his own countrymen. Reagan also lied about providing weapons in the Iran Contra affair. Reagan promised to balance the budget, but instead ran up the largest deficit in history. Many easily-mislead fools still believe that Reagan was the best president America ever had. AMERICANS LOVE LIARS, EVEN AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN EXPOSED.

    Humans are drawn to ETHNOCENTRIC RELIGIOUS LIES and ENDLESS SELF DESCEPTION - Suicidally loved by those self-serving "center of the universe" bigoted morons, who lack any critical thinking skills at all!

    The bald-faced political liar and former Governor / Baptist pastor / guitarist, friendly, likeable, presidential-candidate "Mike Huckabee" ranted on Fox News to racist Christians that Barack Obama was a Muslim born in Kenya, despite overwhelming well-documented FACTS to the contrary. He has told this political Big Lie so many times that he can do it with a deceptive straight face - as though he now believes his own lie to be true (just like the senile actor Ronald Reagan could do).

    The uncritical double-dumb Tea Party religious racist "BIRTHERS" swallowed Huckabee's Big Lie hook, line, and sinker - JUST LIKE SMALL TOWN CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVES EAGERLY BOUGHT HITLER'S BIGGEST LIES. In 2011, 45% of non-learning ethnocentric Republicans that were polled are STILL STUPID BIRTHERS. This Big Bad Lie is convenient for their racial hatred of the TRUTH. Republican leaders like John Boehner and Mitch McConnell still refuse to speak out to defend the TRUTH. THEY NEED THE POLITICAL SUPPORT OF SUPER-STUPID BIRTHERS for the next election - Just like Hitler needed conservative small-town Christians who were easily swayed by his endless huge lies. Idiots have learned nothing from Hitler's clear example. Even the often-bankrupt thief Donald Trump jumped on the ridiculous Birther bandwagon - to gain support from weak-minded fools.

    I was raised in a wonderful Christian home. I learned in Sunday school and by example at home that God is Truth and Love. A compassionate honest person who seeks and speaks God's Truth has nothing to fear from death. Bad bad damaging lies are a sure sign of what motivates an individual. False witness surely violates the Ten Commandments. How can people continue to support an exposed big liar? Hitler was nearly a worst case example of Normalcy Bias gone mad.

    "Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another." - Homer

    Can you imagine a hypocritical politician who staunchly stands on a false platform of family values, and then is caught in sex scandals?

    Can you imagine a politician who is NOT hypocritical?

    It pains me deeply when I see modern ethnocentric religious people teaching their children to reject science and hate those who do not agree entirely with them. God commanded "Thou shalt not kill" with no exceptions. Throughout human history King David, popes, presidents, pastors, and dictators have violated God's most import of all commandments, IN GOD'S NAME. They are extremely-evil hypocrites who have led millions of innocent children astray.

    "Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the man through whom they come!" - Matthew 18:7 - The world is full of virulently-ignorant religious sinners, but the worst judgement is reserved for those who teach them Big Lies.

    "Whenever, therefore, people are deceived and form opinions wide of the truth, it is clear that the error
    has slid into their minds through the medium of certain resemblances to that truth."
    - Socrates

    The largest liars begin with a semblance of believable truth, and then warp it for their own selfish greed.

    Hitler appealed greatly to the naive conservative Christian moral majority. He sought their strong political support, and received it. Hitler promised to eliminate government corruption and solve German‘s unemployment problems. He insisted on liberty and freedom. His party's campaign posters read: “If you want to remain free Germans, vote for the National Socialists.”

    "I think there is a good reason why the propaganda system works (so well). It recognizes that the public will not support the actual policies. Therefore, it is important to prevent any knowledge or understanding of them." - Avram Noam Chomsky

    The U.S. Tax Code is 10,000 pages of terrible, convoluted, corrupt policies. Middle-class people cannot understand most of it. The complexity of the Tax Code was written by powerful lobbyists from powerful corporations like GE and the oil companies. GE made $14 billion in profit in 2010. Their high-paid army of tax lawyers and accountants used the loopholes that were written into the Tax Code for them to avoid paying one penny in income tax. The uninformed powerless middle class pay nearly twice the incremental tax rate that billion-dollar-a-year parasitic hedge fund managers pay for the 15% capital gains tax. The propaganda system has convinced voters that this system is "fair." In 2011, the Republican House of Representatives propaganda tried to convince their constituents that cutting the tax rate for millionaires from 35% down to 25% will help balance our out-of-control budget.

    In addition to support in conservative small towns, Hitler found support among the declining former middle class. He also received strong support from some of the wealthy - who  demanded lower taxes and suppression of malcontent labor unions. Hitler's many impossible mutually-exclusive lies tried to be "all things to all people" - and FRUSTRATED GERMANS EAGERLY BOUGHT HIS BIG NATIONAL SOCIALIST PARTY LINE.

    Hitler appeared to the myopic majority to stand for the common man. He was critical of Germany's oppressive economic "barons" who failed to provide living-wage jobs. Hitler promised good jobs, full employment, and abundant meat and bread to Germany's millions of unemployed.

    Hitler's National Socialist Party had the appeal of being young, against failed politics-as-usual, and on the move toward a better Germany.

    Many unemployed young men and oppressed malcontents joined Hitler’s National Socialists. Hitler set up places where vulnerable unemployed young men could get a hot meal and trade their shabby clothes for a “brown-shirt” - National Socialist storm trooper uniform. Hitler’s movement trained many young boys to support him with complete-and-total BLIND FAITH. Adolf Hitler could lead them anywhere - and he did just that.

    In 1932, Germany’s unemployment rate reached an overwhelming 32% - 5,102,000 in September. Hitler falsely criticized the Jewish aspect of oppressive capitalism for not providing jobs. Hitler appealed to the arrogant stupid racist bigots who believed his myths and lies about Jews, and who believed in the wonderful promises of prosperity from Hitler’s National Socialist German Workers Party.

    Rich and poor alike believed Hitler's mutually-exclusive promises to satisfy everyone, except the Jews. The truth of the matter was that NONE of Germany's oppressive corporation barons was a Jew. But non-thinking uncritical conservative Christians who followed Hitler's lies by blind faith were not about to change their closed mind, just because of documented FACTS. If you are convinced that Global Warming Is A Hoax, you will boil to death and never accept the scientific truth. You will kill your own children if your charismatic preacher or Fox News commands you to do so. WHY ARE CLOSED-MINDED VIRULENTLY-IGNORANT NON-LEARNING IDIOTS SO VERY BLIND TO THE OBVIOUS TRUTH? Ethnocentricity!

    Does any of the above sound at all familiar to you? Can you see any modern similarities? Do YOU know anyone who buys Big Lies?

    Those fools who refuse to study history, condemn themselves to repeat its worst mistakes again and again.

    “History does not repeat itself, but it rhymes.” - Mark Twain

    There will not be another Hitler's holocaust, but there MUST be a total economic and political collapse in extremely-corrupt non-learning ethnocentric quasi-religious dishonest greedy America.

    Through a complex political process following the failure of German capitalist democracy, Adolf Hitler came to power as their deadly dictator in 1932. He immediately broke most of his impossible campaign promises, and aggressively began “ethnic cleansing”, which led to the genocidal holocaust, and catastrophic destruction of Hitler's corrupt Germany.

    Is that what freedom-loving ethnocentric patriotic Germans with no critical thinking skills had voted for?

    Did YOU vote for today's U.S. government to do what it is now doing to the great detriment of your family's future?

    The modern U.S. government is a good example of a familiar bad idea.

    When all political parties are very corrupt, will switching back and forth between them make anything better (or worse)?

    If you believe the political advertisements (paid for by corrupt corporations) that say changing political parties will solve all of our man-made unsustainable lifestyle problems, then you deserve the kind of suicidal politics-as-usual that CREATED our endless problems.

    You must immediately develop powers of observation, critical thinking skills, and a functional brain of your own.

    The future of America after our great 21st-century collapse will not be like Hitler’s Germany, the guillotine of the French Revolution, recent Greece, Iraq, Iran, or Libya, BUT America most-certainly can NOT continue on our current unsustainable suicidal path for long.

    When the USA currency collapse surly occurs (very soon), the resulting catastrophe will precipitate a rapid and radical revolution.

    What will your family do? It is likely to be a knee-jerk reaction with terrible unintended consequences
    - As difficult to predict or control as Germany was before Hitler started World War II.

    Do NOT let today's (Hitler-like) BIG LIARS lead you any farther away from the obvious truth about current unsustainability.

     

    Ethnocentric Bigotry - There is some in almost everyone

    Definition of Ethnocentric : The false belief that one's cultural group is centrally important, and that all other groups should be measured in relation to one's own.

    Bigots are obstinately devoted to their own opinions and prejudices, especially intolerance, hatred and animosity toward those who are different.

    In my early 20's, I was enticed by evangelical Christianity. Aggressive Evangelical People have such overwhelming Ethnocentric Bigotry that they invest heavily in converting others to their own religious opinions. More mindless followers means more monetary income for their church. Televangelism is among the worst examples in gullible America.

    Evangelical "cultists" want to destroy other religious cultures that have survived the test of time, much longer than their own.

    Preaching hatred is clear proof of a deceptive false religion. Living lives of greed, corruption, immorality, and unsustainable disrespect for Nature's Universal Laws are other absolute proofs of religious leaders who lack any understanding of God's obvious Truth.

    Evangelical Ethnocentric Bigots are very convinced that their own biblical canon (written by ancient unscientific very-inconsistent humans - translated poorly over multiple millennia) is FLAWLESS TRUTH, despite all modern scientific proof to the contrary.

    I NEVER accepted their false religious beliefs that: The universe is 6,000 years old. The flat Earth is fixed on its foundation and does not move. Earth is the center of the universe, etc. - Just because their bible told them so by blind faith in the absurd. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evangelicalism

    Evangelical bigots emphatically believe, and endlessly preach, that their way is the ONLY path to God.

    John 14:6: "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

    Did Jesus really say that in Aramaic, or was it introduced by the Greek scholars who first wrote the New Testament hundreds of years later? There is no eye-witness written history about the life of Jesus available to us today, but I doubt the Christianity of Adolf Hitler, the modern Christian Wrestling Foundation, and Christian Gun Owners Association (among other hypocritical arrogant bigots). I doubt that Islamic bigots who teach their children to be hateful suicidal bombers have a clue about the foundation of their religion.

    Evangelical bigots preach that everyone who disagrees with them, no matter how they live their life, will burn forever in Satan's Hell (as commanded by their "loving" "forgiving" God Jesus in Matthew 5, 10, 16, 18, 23, and Mark 9). Should anyone be asked to live their life in FEAR of a dictatorial-preacher's violent, vengeful, God Of Wrath?

    "God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." - 2 Timothy 1:7

    I am a God-loving man, not a God-fearing man. I am fulfilling my God-given purpose in life. I am sure it is why I am still alive as I write these words. I have nothing to fear from death. When God's purpose for my life has been completely fulfilled, I will sing my death song with great joy, and hope that those I leave behind will celebrate my legacy of good will, and love of Nature and like-minded friends around the world.

    In my 20's, I had some obvious questions for Fear-Monger Evangelical Bigots: Will everyone who died before the birth of Jesus burn in Hell forever? Did Moses come to God through Jesus? If God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, then why does the Christian New Testament contradict the Torah? What is a "dispensation"?

    Is there even one glaring flaw or obvious self-contradiction anywhere in any evangelical bible? Illiterate Christian Bigots Ignore the Truth and Incorrectly Think Not.

    As a research scientist, I strongly believed in the obvious majesty of the timeless Creator of the Universe, but I had great difficulty with evangelical religious ethnocentric bigotry in the churches and books that I surveyed - searching for Godly Truth, and the scientific Laws of Nature.

    Always Remember: Conservative Christians were Adolf Hitler's strongest political supporters. Do YOU believe or reject this well-documented provable fact? http://www.fsmitha.com/h2/ch16.htm Do you believe, support, or tell any Big Lies today?

    Never enter into an intellectual battle with an unarmed opponent - Never argue with a bigot

    Proverbs 12:15: "The way of a fool is right in his own eyes" (They never think they lose any argument - Why try?)

     

    Am I A Christian? I was raised in a loving wonderful Christian home. I was "sprinkled" as an infant. I participated in all of our church program social youth activities. At age 13, I attended Catechism class. My grandfathers, father, brother and I did not serve in the military. We were never trained to kill. I was taught that killing is a serious sin.

    As an adult, i was immersed in baptism in another Christian church. I proclaimed Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior, for the perpetual forgiveness of my sins. I often proclaimed that I was "born again." My life changed significantly for the better. I was convinced then, as I am now, that I had nothing to fear from death.

    I studied The Bible HEAVILY - I even took a post-graduate course in New Testament Greek, so I could translate the New Testament for myself - without any intermediate human telling me what it meant. I learned for certain for myself that there are many obvious flaws and self contradictions in the man-written, man-translated "Holy Bible."

    My belief in the majestic timeless Creator of the Universe does not come from any ancient religious text, or from blind faith in anything from a corrupt human's mouth or pen.

    My strong unwavering faith in God comes from absolute, observable, Scientific PROOF. 1 Thessalonians 5:21 "PROVE all things; hold fast that which is True."
    IF you cannot scientifically PROVE what you believe to be true, then it is mere speculation, or blind dumb faith in the impossible.

    For years, I participated in a personal peer-level round-table Bible study that grew from three of us to over 500 loving compassionate reverent souls.

    No one told anyone WHAT to believe. We demonstrated to each other HOW to think critically, NOT WHAT TO THINK.
    We encouraged people to let all of Nature speak to them through science, and the written feelings of others that they respect.
    We NEVER asked for or accepted any financial support for our ministry of peers. Everyone earned his own daily bread.

    Since then, I've traveled the world extensively, seen a great many wonderful things, and met diverse new friends with religious views that I respect.

    Many Asian religions believe that heaven begins when you start living an enlightened, compassionate, unselfish, loving life on Earth in harmony with Nature and with each other. I like that basic idea much better than great suffering on Earth today, waiting for "pie in the sky by and by."

    I love most of the morality teachings of Jesus (except John 14:6). The world would be a better place if only a few people lived the way Jesus taught us to.

    I know the Bible well enough that I do not claim to be a "Christian" who follows ALL of Jesus teachings (some of which are self-contradictory).

    I am NOT anti-Jesus or anti-Christian. I respect their beliefs, compassion, and good works (when they live a virtuous life).
    BUT, I am anti-fraudulent self-serving evangelists and corrupt politicians who use the name of Jesus Christ in vain.

    I align my views with reverent Deists, like America's founding fathers, and many renowned scientists throughout history

    There are many teachers who left the world with wonderful moral scriptures to live by - I quote some of them in my writing, and encourage my friends to have an open mind.

     

    Zero Energy Design® is tolerant of multiple religious views. We do NOT teach or practice austerity or wealth-accumulation oppression.

    Our trademark is: ABUNDANT Energy In Harmony With Nature®. The Creator of the Universe provided us with bountiful resources to live a joyous, harmonious, Garden-Of-Eden life on Earth, IF we will study and respect the Universal Laws of Nature, Universal Conciseness, and Sustainable Lifestyle Choices.

     

    I am increasingly convinced that Intelligent Well-Traveled People (who have many wonderful friends from diverse ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds) are much-more tolerant, and far-less bigoted, than narrow-minded closed-culture non-learning fools with few true friends, and little exposure to the positive aspects of diversity.

    I spent year 2000 on contract in Australia. It is a wondrous diverse country of many good (and a few bad) things. I was delighted to work and play in their cohesive multi-cultural environment. Some of my new friends were Buddhists. I respect most of their beliefs, which are quite different than the ones I grew up with at home.

    Buddhists most-certainly have a much-better understanding of Nature and sustainability, and especially nutrition, than any obese American. If you saw a fat person in Sydney, it was almost always an American. All of my intelligent new Australian friends were slim, trim, fit, and interested in living in harmony with Nature.

    Most Australians believe that many Americans are both stupid and suicidal. I certainly think so myself, and I "are" one (self-deprecation humor - smile).

    Popular Buddhism appeals to an increasing number of open-minded individuals around the world, because of its promise of calm enlightenment.

    In contrast, traditional American Evangelical "Creationist" Christianity has come to be intellectually regarded as inferior, by the majority of humanity.

    Unlike many religions, there is no "God" in Buddhism - It is a way of life. Buddhism's goal is the attainment of "Nirvana", which is a state where cravings, desires and even self-centered egos cease to dominate one's life. Pursuit of Nirvana leads toward peaceful harmony with Nature and humanity.

    I am not a Buddhist, but I have observed that many good Buddhists have at least a partial understanding of an idealistic plan for joyful life on Earth today. I respect their pursuit of Nirvana. They wisely seek living in harmony with Nature. I am certainly not an expert in Buddhism, but my good friends seem to live a happy, harmonious, loving life. I am naturally drawn to such pleasant people. We do not think that the world IS perfect, but we feel that the lifestyle decisions we make every day can help Earth become incrementally better than the mess others have created before.

    I believe that there was only one timeless Creator of the Universe, but it appears to me that there are multiple paths that lead toward righteousness (from my personal enlightened point of view - which of course I feel is on the right path toward Nirvana, but not yet fully arrived - smile).

    The word "good" is derived from "God." I would rather live next door to a good Buddhist than a bigot full of deadly hatred, who falsely claims to be a "Christian."

    Extremist Glen Beck says that he spends a million dollars a year of his own money on security to protect him from endless death threats. I speak the truth. I have no such fear. I have never received a death threat, (but most of us do not know how or when we will eventually die).

    Jesus taught people to love one another. He was crucified, but He had nothing to fear from death. I am most-certainly no Jesus, but I love God, Nature, and human potential.

    I believe that we can recognize people who are on the path toward righteousness by their love, compassion, generosity, and universal consciousness. Evil ones are characterized by selfish greed.

    A "good life" speaks much louder than a clenched fist, atomic bombs, or a heavy-gold jeweled cross hanging from the neck of an obese "Christian" hypocrite.

    I don't agree with everything that some Buddhists do. I think it is unusual to cut up human remains and feed them to mountain-top birds, so the human spirit can soar in the sky. It is not the way I was raised, but to each his own, as long as it does not injure others' minds or bodies.

    Most good Buddhists do not impose much of anything negative on those of us with differing opinions. It may be illegal in some of the USA to feed human remains to birds. Some ethnocentric American laws disrespect and do not tolerate cultural and religious diversity that existed long before the creation of our experimental nation (which falsely claims "In God We Trust" while rejecting Nature's Universal Laws of harmonious sustainability).

    I've left instructions that I am to be cremated (which is legal, but unusual for some). I want to return my lifeless remains to Earth's recycled dust from whence my body came - in the most efficient way. I pass no judgement on how people want their empty remains dealt with, as long as it does not impact the rest of us.

    It seems that tolerance of diversity is often easy to do for many things, but sometimes tolerance is banned by laws made by bigots. In early America, some of the states banned the minority of Catholics, Quakers, and Jews from holding public office or having churches in their state. Thomas Jefferson's Bill for Religious Freedom in Virginia changed that and made it clear that government has no business selecting which religious points of view are right or wrong. We are to be a nation of intellectual freedom, without any religion force on us.

    Shall we allow the Koch-Brothers-funded Tea Party insurrection to replace tolerance with their brand of inequitable bigotry? Flip flopping mainstream Republicans have been hijacked by intolerant well-funded big business bigots.

    I've seen first hand that Native Americans, and Australian Aborigines greatly respect Nature, and a good sustainable lifestyle. Some have become my well-respected friends.

    I like the Constitution_of_Medina, which enabled peaceful multi-cultural close coexistence with diverse people of very-different religions.

    It is often very-good to be a loyal patriot to a Godly cause, BUT it is supremely-evil bigotry to think that everyone who is a bit different should be hated and killed.

    If you dedicate yourself to defend a worthy cause, you must Avoid Ethnocentric Bigotry, and be open to the fact that some things about your cause, culture, or country may still need significant improvement, especially in the areas of Universal Consciousness, Love, Compassion, Unselfishly Sharing Success, Defending the Oppressed, Seeking the Provable Scientific Truth (even if it disagrees with your inaccurate opinions), and LEARNING HOW TO LIVE SUSTAINABLE IN HARMONY WITH NATURE.

    Commandments against murder are central to most religions and human cultures. Many of us reasonably measure others by how they deal with evil murder.

    I believe it is acceptable to hate the criminal act of murder for greed, but totally unacceptable to hate an entire culture that has a small number of insane murders.

     

    Absolute, Irrefutable, Unavoidable, Documented TRUTH

    According to Stephen Moore of the Wall Street Journal: America Has Become A Nation of Takers - Not Makers

    "If you want to understand better why so many states - from New York to Wisconsin to California - are teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, consider this depressing statistic: Today in America there are nearly twice as many people working for the government (22.5 million) than in all of manufacturing (11.5 million).

    "This is an almost exact reversal of the situation in 1960, when there were 15 million workers in manufacturing and 8.7 million collecting a paycheck from the government. It gets worse.

    " More Americans work for the government than work in construction, farming, fishing, forestry, manufacturing, mining and utilities COMBINED. We have moved decisively from a nation of makers to a nation of takers. Nearly half of the $2.2 Trillion cost of state and local governments is the $1 Trillion-a-year tab for pay and benefits of state and local employees. Is it any wonder that so many states and cities cannot pay their bills? "

    Are you pleased with the efficiency and quality of work performed by the government employees that YOU are paying for today?

     

    Every well-intentioned aggressive-growth ethnocentric empire has ALWAYS collapsed - almost always due in part to toleration of greed, pursuit of power, corruption, and selfish oppression of the mediocre-minded myopic majority. Millions die during the collapse, but some survive to tell the sad story, and begin anew.

    Egypt, Greece, Rome, England, Germany, Japan, et.al. still exist today, BUT, not in the glorious form that they once did. Short-attention-span non-learning fools quickly forget the most-important lessons of the past, and return to the same behavior that destroyed the greatest works of their ancestors.

    No student of history can rationally deny that America has done, and continues to do, many of the same spectacularly-stupid things that destroyed every great nation before us. Germany is now outperforming America in education, technology and sustainability today. Many Germans are now prosperous, and happy with their competitive advantage in the global marketplace.

    Are you with yours? Will you be pleased when your lifetime savings are worthless, and Medicare and Social Security are both bankrupt?

    American ingenuity will undoubtedly adapt after our complete currency collapse (which will be worse than the Great Depression).

    We will still mostly be here next year, BUT IN WHAT FORM?

    Some people may find compassionate friends in their local community. Will you be able to? Why not get started TODAY?

    Some American states already have growing groups who want to secede from our rapidly-failing union.

    Many radical reinvention opportunities are before us now - Some are good, but many are too terrible to think about.

    The sooner we begin to prepare, the less of a calamity our currency collapse will be. Inaction is immoral and suicidal.

    When our failed government / economy can no longer provide basic services or living-wage jobs, WHAT WILL USA DO?

    The specific details are very-difficult to predict, but unavoidable near-term U.S. dollar collapse is not.

    WHAT'S NEXT? Are YOU prepared for the predictable / inevitable? Will you just "wait and see"? In what do you trust?

    Will your family survive and thrive IF you fail to plan and prepare for the unavoidable future collapse TODAY?

    Emerald Eco-City can solve all of these problems - BUT, the narrow window of opportunity is almost closed.
    The necessary development resources may completely evaporate - When the U.S. dollar is totally worthless.

     

    UNEMPLOYMENT is directly linked to the rapidly-declining U.S. dollar

    A jobless recovery that only makes the rich richer is No Recovery At All !

    Where is rational national leadership?

    December 2010: U.S. Labor Force Participation fell to the level that it was in 1984,
    when Ronald Reagan canceled President Carter's ENERGY INDEPENDENCE
    Plan, increased imported-oil subsidies, and gave large regressive tax breaks
    to the rich oil men who quietly paid for Reagan's 1980 defeat of Carter

    The 2010 unaccountable lame-duck U.S. Congress REFUSED to restore sanity to tax rates
    - Driving our innocent grandchildren a Trillion Dollars deeper in debt !

    The progress-blocking Republican House of Representatives may be much worse for America

    2008 proved that oil-corruption bribery is STILL having serious consequences
    in our non-learning nation that DENIES The Documented TRUTH:

    Criminal counterfeit currency is playing a critical role in UNEMPLOYMENT

    Suppose you had a criminal investment counselor that lost 82% of your lifetime savings net worth in only ten years. Would you promote him or fire him? Would you lock him in federal prison for life next to Bernie Madoff, or would you give billionaires big tax breaks (as our corrupt 2010 lame-duck Congress did)?

    For you to BREAK EVEN for the rapid decline in value of the U.S. dollar over the last ten years, your salary and lifetime savings would have to increase in net value about 18% per year after all taxes. Did yours? If not, you have been the victim of theft by our organized-crime government monetary system intentional actions. How much longer can YOU endure such ongoing (accelerating) gigantic theft? What value (jobs, food, services, etc.) will be left for our children and their offspring?

    The full devastating economic impact of the Bush / Obama THEFT from U.S. dollar holders is damaging the entire worldwide U.S.-dollar-based economic system. Worthless U.S. dollars may soon not be able to buy imported OPEC oil, Japanese cars, or things from China. Their economies will also collapse. They may refuse (be unable) to loan us money by buy any more U.S.-dollar-based bonds. The extreme example of counterfeit currency created by the U.S. government is precipitating the collapse of other countries' currencies and economies all over our perilous planet.

    January 11, 2011, French President Nicolas Sarkozy met with U.S. President Obama in the Washington D.C. White House. Barack said publicly that " America has no closer ally than France ."

    France is sponsoring the 2011 G8 and G20 economic summit meetings. Sarkozy told Obama that Europe and emerging nations like China have lost confidence in the U.S. dollar (due to our unconstitutional runaway quantitative easing crimes). Sarkozy (who controls the G8 and G20 meeting agenda) said that something must be done to replace the role that the U.S. dollar used to play before its recent rapid devaluation.

    Hello America! Is anyone listening to the Truth of the Consequences of our government's criminal counterfeiting corruption?!

    The terrible tragedy of outsourcing American jobs, energy supply, food-production, technology and national wealth may suddenly smash our society as we know it. Only those nations and local tribes with a stable coin of the realm may survive and thrive. Even an effective barter system is better than worthless counterfeit currency that no one will accept. We may very soon have no choice but to develop local-community alternative currency systems.

    Edgar Cahn - Time Banks USA

     

    There are many greedy NYC Wall Street speculative hedge fund parasites who make over a BILLION USD per year. They steal from mediocre minds who do not understand unsustainability. They add nothing to the economy. And, they pay only 15% capital gains tax (less than most honest hard-working middle-class Americans pay).

    Many corrupt Republicans want to eliminate capital gains taxes, so such billion-dollar-per-year market manipulators will pay no federal tax at all.

    Consider for a moment this radical thought question: Is an hour of a destructive parasite's time worth more than an hour of honest organic farmer's time, who produces high-quality nutritious toxin-free food?

    In greedy capitalistic "profit is god" society: Inequitable PRICES ARE THE CRISIS

    The ethnocentric selfish view that "my time is worth more than your time" is the source of oppression, strife, inequity, iniquity, and eventually depression and revolution. "The love of money is the root of all evil"

    Time banks deal with this issue in a much-more rational, national, humane way. 1 hour = 1 hour, universally. Greedy parasites hate this idea.

    If you "love thy neighbor as you love yourself" and you "want for your brother what you want for yourself", then it is compassion and universal consciousness that motivate people's behavior - NOT GREED. It worked well thousands of years ago - Shared prosperity is almost dead today.

    If your primary motivation is greedy profit (instead of shared prosperity), then YOU ARE THE PROBLEM that we are working hard to eliminate.

    Greedy selfish parasites are not hard to find -
    They advertise who they are with conspicuous consumption, while a billion starve to death.
    "Would Jesus wear a Rolex?" Would He ask me for 20 with 10,000 on His arm?

     

    America's founding fathers knew that we would need a stable, long-lasting, meaningful medium of exchange. That is why they made it a written-contract Constitutional imperative that the currency MUST have the INTRINSIC VALUE of nothing less than gold or silver. Criminal breach of contract has crushed the previously-stable economic foundation of our young experimental greedy capitalistic profiteering democratic nation.

    Perhaps whatever replaces USA will finally learn this critical lost lesson of ancient wisdom. If intelligent dolphins replace humans, they will have no need of currency other than what Nature abundantly provides, untouched by human abuse, exploitation and destruction of the environment that is the source of life. Most of God's Great Creation would be much better off IF self-destructive humans did not infest the otherwise-blue-green Earth today. Do you agree?

    In only 10 years, organized-crime U.S. government counterfeiters clearly STOLE 82% of the real worth of everything valued in U.S. dollars. $4 / gallon unsustainable imported gasoline played a critical role in accelerating the collapse of the U.S. dollar. Something very-similar happened after the 1973-1979 OPEC oil embargoes when gasoline pump price rose 600% in only six years. The price-and-availability of energy controls the modern economy.

    Government-sponsored intentional double-digit inflation stole significant lifetime net worth from my own parents, and from many others of their generation. Today's 18%-per-year average loss of value of the U.S. dollars (relative to gold) is much worse than the 1970's energy-triggered currency crisis. Oil addicts are short-attention-span non-learning suicidal fools. We MUST have free-fuel, daily-renewable, clean, green, zero-emissions, safe sources of growing future energy. Anything less (like expensive oil, coal, gas, biofuel, and nuclear) is a deadly dirt road detour to disaster.

    Our current Great Recession is NOT a trivial economic downturn from which we can ever recover - It is a well-established self-destructive societal trend toward cataclysmic currency collapse. Who will put their future faith in the rapidly-declining U.S. dollar? Would YOU be so dumb as to hoard U.S. dollars for the next ten years? Will millions of U.S. dollars make your future secure in 2020? ABSOLUTELTY NOT! Where will you invest the next ten years of your finite life? How will you measure your future financial security? Do you think Medicare and Social Security are actuarially sound? Is the very foundation of our nation?

    Do you think that twenty U.S. dollars will ever be able to buy one ounce of gold again in the future?

    The U.S. dollar can NOT recover from endless criminal counterfeiting

    "Quantitative Easing" is a political euphemism for "the organized-crime unconstitutional
    government stealing value from the holders of U.S.-dollar-based assets."

    In 1933 gold was $20 USD / oz. In 2001 it was $251 / oz. By the end of 2010,
    gold had reached $1415 / oz., and by late Spring of 2011 gold hit $1540 per ounce

    U.S. Dollars declined in value 82% in 10 years relative to gold - The trend toward total collapse is very clear

    In 1964 silver was $1.25 USD / oz. In 2001 it was $4 / oz. By the end of 2010, silver had reached $31 / oz.

    U.S. dollars declined in value 87% in 10 years relative to silver - Gold and Silver PROVE: U.S. Dollars Are Worth Less

    In 2008, the price of America's most popular fruit went up over 65% in one jump (due to the price of fuel)
    In 2010, the average price of all fresh fruits and vegetables went up 55% year over year
    Is the quality and safety of today's food better or worse than a decade ago? Is it worth MORE?

    In poor nations, a 10% increase in the price of imported food can cause millions more innocent children to starve

    Did YOUR salary or social security check increase 55% in one year - YOU are the victim of government crime
    Many Americans now make LESS than when Bush / Cheney took office - Tens of millions are unemployed
    In our "democracy" of the mediocre majority, voters have been hoodwinked into believing Endless LIES

    How long will YOU tolerate the insane way our economy is collapsing?

    Record High FAO Food Price Index

    When the dollar declines, prices rise, and your standard of living must clearly become worse

    The 2011 rate of fuel and food price inflation is even higher than 2010

    Simple-minded people compare inflationary prices using declining dollars
    The real measure is how many hours did you have to work to pay your bills?
    Are you living better or worse than last year? Are you working harder or longer?
    Do you even have a job? Do you know anyone who cannot find a good job?

    WalMart said in 2011 they must increase the price of everything - They sell half of American retail
    Do you believe the big liar Bernanke when he testifies under oath to Congress that inflation is zero?

    Wealthy people who received the largest tax cuts from Republicans do not feel the pain of inflation
    The regressive burden of our rapidly-falling dollar falls on those who are least able to pay
    Oppression of the poor leads to modern riots and rebellions that topple governments

    Taking away collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin resulted in protests larger than any Tea Party rally

    Before the 2010 election, 17% approved of the U.S. Congress mismanagement of everything
    After Republicans took control of the House in 2011, 13% of Americans approved of Congress
    Knee-jerk politics is counterproductive when both political parties are equally corrupt

    Is voting alone going to correct the corrupt system that created our current collapse crisis?
    Do you care about the future of YOUR family? What will YOU do today to fix tomorrow?

     

    40% of Egyptians have been living on less than the equivalent of $2 per day.
    When their monetary system collapsed, the price of imported wheat rose 70%.
    They could no longer afford bread and water.
    Revolutionary riots were the result.

    The collapse of the U.S. dollar is not far behind this international catastrophe trend.
    Borrowing 40% of every dollar we spend can NOT be sustained much longer!
    Corrupt unconstitutional American politics-as-usual is destroying our children's future.

     

    What will the U.S. dollar price of gold be in the next few years?
    It will not change in a straight line, but it WILL change for the worse

    Will the crooked corrupt criminal unconstitutional U.S. government steal an additional 82% of YOUR lifetime net worth before 2020? Will USA go "belly up" in only a few years? Total sudden counterfeit currency collapse is NOT a pretty picture of the future, but it is now very possible (and even likely). THE U.S. DOLLAR IS NOW AT KNOCKING AT DEATH'S DOOR.

    Gold is NOT worth any more today than it was when King Tut ruled Egypt. U.S. DOLLARS ARE WORTH LESS !

    Gold Bust Egyptian King Tut

    No rational observant human with a functional brain can deny that GOLD, SILVER, FOOD and FUEL AGREE:
    U.S. dollars are a rapidly-declining, worth-less, ineffective repository and measure of real wealth, with NO Intrinsic Value

    What value is "the full faith and credit" in our failing federal government,
    when no one in the world thinks our current system is sustainable?

    The futile future goal of accumulating declining U.S. dollars is a guaranteed loss
    of lifetime net worth and financial security

    We need a compelling motivational vision of a happy secure future -
    That is why we created our Emerald Eco-City prosperity proposal

    We hope that you will take the time to study HOW
    our ZED proposals can solve ALL of these life-critical future security problems

    It took two centuries to create today's complex USA criminal culture -
    We may have less than two years to correct our current course

    You may soon be faced with the option to starve to death with a fist full of $100 bills in hand,
    or learn how to live in harmony with Nature

    Suppose you knew for absolute certain that U.S. dollars will definitely be worth ZERO two years from today ...
    What would you do with your dollars?

    We do NOT recommend hoarding dollars, silver or gold -
    INVEST IN REAL FUTURE INFRASTRUCTURE VALUE

     

    Government Corruption Creates and Encourages Enormous Waste, Fraud, and Abuse (WFA)

    Power corrupts. Power changes people. The longer people are in power, the more corrupt they become.

    Power is addictive. Those in power often give up most of their promises in order to retain power.

    Power over the public purse is one of the most corrupting government influences in the world today.

    Candidates accept big bribes and spend millions on false advertising to gain or retain political power.

    They then repay those who bribed them with billions of dollars in immoral irrational subsidies and WFA.

    Why did taxpayers bailout Wall Street parasites, so bankers could pay themselves $135 Billion in 2010 ?
    Answer: Many in the Bush and Obama administration are greedy Harvard MBA's and bribed Wall Street insiders.

    Why do U.S. taxpayers allow $47 Billion in SUBSIDIES to unsustainable dead-end oil companies ? ? ?
    Answer: Petroleum is still the most-powerful and profitable influence-peddling business on Earth today !

    Why do the highest-paid Americans making over $10 million per year receive the most-significant tax breaks ?
    Why do Wall Street hedge-fund managers making over a billion dollars per year pay only 15% capital gains tax ?

    Answer: Unfair taxation is clearly a deadly demonstration of the extreme corruption of political-power bribery !

    Why do taxpayers allow our criminal government to spend the money they paid into the Social Security Trust Fund ?
    Answer: Mediocre-minded voters refuse to recognize that Social Security is an insecure illegal Ponzi scheme.

    Why do the holders of U.S. dollars allow the criminal printing of worthless paper money that badly dilutes the dollar ?
    Answer: Our corrupt government covers up the TRUTH about Quantitative Easing, and LIES about Zero Inflation.

     

    My wife and I had security clearances (so we could work on unpublished government-secret projects). We will never be able to confirm or deny specific details, but we can speak about broad generalities, and patriotically work to encourage many government reforms (to help avoid or mitigate the near-term total collapse of America). We have sadly both observed first hand extreme government corruption and WFA.

    The U.S. Office of Budget and Management estimated that WFA "Improper payments" increased 38% in 2009.

    Some more-skeptical critics suggest that 2 / 3 of the U.S. budget goes to various forms of government-encouraged WFA.

    IF it was somehow possible to eliminate all of the deeply-concealed corruption and WFA, we could probably immediately balance our budget, stop immoral borrowing from China, Japan, and OPEC, stop spending our grandchildren's future, stop spending the Social Security Trust Fund, and triple our nationwide investment in education, new technology innovations, creating better jobs, health care, homeland security, etc.

    Have you ever worked on a government contract, or gone to a government agency and seen obvious gross inefficiency? MY WIFE AND I HAVE!

    I used to be an advisor on IBM Armonk HQ's Technical Strategy Assessment Team, and an IBM-trained Executive Suite presenter. I've been involved in many government automation projects. I know for certain that USA still does NOT use modern computing-and-communication technology effectively.

    I've seen excellent cost-effective innovation / automation proposals rejected because of pure political corruption and bribery.

    U.S. government agencies are among the LEAST EFFICIENT bloated bureaucracies in the world today. They are non-learning entities that perpetuate the endless problems that THEY created in the past.

    In his 2011 State of the Union Address, President Obama said: "There are 12 different agencies that deal with exports. There are at least five different agencies that deal with housing policy. Then there's my favorite example: The Interior Department is in charge of salmon while they're in fresh water, but the Commerce Department handles them when they're in saltwater. I hear it gets even more complicated once they're smoked."

    When will overburdened American taxpayers STOP tolerating the redundancy and gross inefficiency that dominates American government?

    The number of people working for our federal government is rapidly expanding, while tens of millions of Americans cannot find reasonable living-wage employment. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, government employees are paid 35% higher wages and 69% greater benefits than comparable private sector workers. Does this make taxpayers happy? Some cynical critics have suggested that the legislators who set the minimum wage and heath care standards for our declining private sector should receive no better benefits or salary than minimum-wage workers do.

    American Eagle Nose Dive

    WHEN (not if) the American Eagle's Corrupt Dollar-Based Empire falls out of the sky, and crashes and burns in the (near) future (as all other great empires have always done before), anything that is valued only in worthless counterfeit U.S. dollars MAY HAVE NO VALUE AT ALL.

    Americans who are Living in Denial of the Obvious Dollar-Based Economic-Collapse TRUTH may very-soon suffer just as badly as those who lived on the Nile River did, when it dried up 4200 years ago causing the Egyptian Empire to catastrophically collapse. Failure to chose a sustainable lifestyle, and prepare for the predictable economic-and-environmental future, is simply suicidal.

    Will a U.S. $20 bill buy one ounce of gold today? NO! Will a modern counterfeit American quarter buy a gallon of gasoline? NO!

    The U.S. Eagle's Empire is based on the FALSE assumption of constant growth and expansion - which is a criminal pyramid Ponzi scheme. That beastly bubble burst badly in 2008. Endless economic expansion in a non-learning mismanaged corrupt nation is an impossible dream. America MUST collapse as all other once-great empires have always done before.

    Emerald Eco-City has a practical plan to reverse the unsustainable suicidal American trend toward collapse, BUT our window of opportunity grows smaller every day. Shall we just "wait and see" (until it is far-too- late to respond)? How many will perish before those who are currently in denial wake up and see the TRUTH.

    Most Americans still work for U.S. dollars that can be exchanged for the basic necessities of life. Will YOU accept U.S. dollars as payment for your labor, when a $100 bill won't buy a gallon of unhealthy milk? Will almost every American employer go bankrupt when they cannot afford any more imported petroleum? Oil addiction is deadly.

    Our fragile near-bankrupt economy is clearly based on many unsustainable assumptions that have recently been proven to be quite false. Our declining dollar is definitely dying, and we passed U.S. Peak Oil in 1970. The cheap oil of the 1960's is now long gone. The declining American Empire exists today only because of inertia that was set in motion when a gallon of gasoline cost less than one silver quarter (not so very long ago). We can NOT compete in the global market with expensive imported oil and a rapidly-declining U.S. dollar.

    Our growth-oriented economic momentum was completely depleted in 2008, when USA GDP plummeted. Today's GDP numbers are badly inflated by evil parasitic Wall Street speculation, and devaluation of the underlying U.S. dollar. Soon, our foolish economic system may grind to a complete halt, where we will be FORCED to learn how to live abundantly and sustainably in harmony with Nature, OR DIE. You vote for the one you want with each declining dollar that you spend. How much will you spend on imported gasoline this week?

    Will a gas-guzzling SUV full of U.S. $100 bills buy even one slice of bread a few years from now? It happened in Mexico in the 1970's, and millions of them abandoned their collapsing country. Old Mexican pesos are now totally worthless to anyone today. Mexico is a largely-unregulated nation of stark poverty and extreme wealth. According to Forbes Magazine Mexican telecom tycoon Carlos Slim Helú is THE WORLD'S RICHEST MAN, with an estimated personal net worth of $53.5 Billion. What will happen the next time the Mexican peso collapses? Some people profit greatly when a country's currency collapses. Should America deregulate corporate greed and imitate the enormous Mexican wealth discrepancy?

    Are non-learning Americans so very blind that they cannot compare well-documented written history to current life-critical currency collapse?

    Accumulating worth-less U.S. dollars is a totally-ridiculous, insidious, unsustainable, foolish futile future goal ! ! ! It is like holding worthless old Mexican pesos. But, USA parents still teach their innocent children (with no critical thinking skills) to accumulate U.S. dollars today. Do you too?

    The U.S. dollar clearly says "In God We Trust." Do you? OR, do you actually trust only the rapidly-declining U.S. dollar? Is your earthly treasure foolishly based on greed for worth-less U.S. dollars? Is it your goal to die with an abundance of dollars? Do you use dollars to measure your success? Does your retirement planner use dollars to advise you what to do? What does your religious advisor say and do?

    IF you trust God more than a collapsing country's medium of exchange, then you will in all ways seek to live in harmony with God's Nature, and with each other. "No one can serve two masters ... You cannot serve God and money." - Matthew 6:24, Luke 16:13

    Do intelligent dolphins need any dollars at all? Why have you allowed yourself to be deceived that dollars should be your primary goal?

    If you do NOT trust God more than money, then we suggest that you seek a superior way to accumulate treasure on Earth - other than worth-less dollars.

    IF U.S. dollars continue to go down in value only 82% every ten years, how many dollars will you hoard, and for how long? How much net worth do YOU want to lose? Saving U.S. dollars for the last ten years was like working for 18% of what your salary was supposed to be. Higher taxes on your inflated U.S. dollars may have actually made your loss even worse than 18% per year.

    Do YOU naively think that the decline of the U.S. dollar (relative to gold) will immediately STOP, or will downhill decline accelerate?

    Are YOUR lifetime savings investments in decaying U.S. dollars, Wall-Street-computer bits, OR in something that has REAL FUTURE VALUE?

    Is American real estate worth more today than it was in 2006 BEFORE the first wave of our worldwide recession hit in 2008?

    Has YOUR dollar-based income increased 555% like top 1% Americans who received tax cut extensions in 2010, driving USA deeper in debt?

    Has our federal government printing trillions of worthless dollars eliminated our burdensome debt to China, Japan and OPEC?

    Have trillion-dollar corporate bailouts (borrowed from our grandchildren) resulted in full employment among poorly-educated Americans?

    IF WHAT WE ARE DOING TODAY IS NOT WORKING, WHY CLING TO CONSERVATIVE OBSTRUCTIVE BUSINESS-AS-USUAL UNTIL WE DIE? "The thinking which created today's problems is insufficient to solve them." - Albert Einstein

    We need a MUCH better way to measure and manage progress toward the SUSTAINABLE Goal of Abundant Life in Harmony with Nature

     

    America’s Current Government Liabilities Versus Our Entire Gross Domestic Product

    2009 Social Security and Medicare Trustees ’ Report
    $17.5 Trillion - Social Security
    $36.7 Trillion - Medicare Part A
    $37.0 Trillion - Medicare Part B
    $15.6 Trillion - Medicare Part D
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    $107 Trillion - Total Social Security + Medicare Entitlements - Impossible Promises

    (Add to this the $14 Trillion in pure debt represented by the M3 money supply of worthless U.S. dollars out of thin air)

     

    $107 Trillion – Social Security + Medicare Liabilities

    $14 Trillion – Total Current U.S. Federal Debt (rapidly rising)

    $6 Trillion – Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Government-Backed Mortgages

     - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    $127 Trillion – Total Current USA Liabilities (growing)

    $14 Trillion – Total Annual USA Gross Domestic Product (almost flat)

    U.S. Liabilities = Over 900% of Production - ABSOLUTELY UNSUSTAINABLE

    USA Unfunded Liabilities

    Unfunded Liabilities - Deficit Spending - Impossible To Repay

    FACT: If USA eliminates all military spending and recovers the TARP and Stimulus funds,
    and we fire every single government employee, and we end all R&D-and-infrastructure projects,
    AMERICA IS STILL BANKRUPT AND UNABLE TO PAY OUR CURRENT BILLS

    America Can NOT keep Its Promises To Our Citizens
    OR to anyone dumb enough to loan us more money

    We Can NOT Borrow or Print Our Way Out Of This Inescapable Mess !
    We cannot drill our way out of our unsustainable addiction to foreign oil !

    The Future Of The USA Is Very INSECURE - Our Path Is Suicidal

    Our Total Federal Liabilities Must Be Much LESS Than Our GDP

    Which of the above liabilities must be eliminated? Only fools answer: "None"
    Just because the mindless majority WANT endless benefits does NOT make it feasible for long
    If you vote for dishonest politicians that make impossible promises, YOU are easily deceived
    Which part of "UNSUSTAINABLE" do you refuse to accept?

    If you have a mortgage that is larger than the value of your home, can you borrow money on your negative equity? NO!

    One quarter of American small businesses used to finance growth by borrowing on rising home equity. That no longer works any more, and millions of small business jobs have been lost - Even more very soon.

    Politicians are corrupted by huge corporation bribes. After General Electric received $139 Billion in taxpayer bailouts (due to terrible mismanagement), Obama picked the CEO of GE to head America's jobs program. The CEO of a for-profit company has one top priority: Increase profits for shareholders. Is the CEO of a bailed-out mega-company the best choice to tell us how to create good future jobs? Higher labor costs are the exact opposite of what a greedy profiteering CEO wants.

    Small businesses used to generate most new jobs. They are being badly oppressed by USA near-collapse policies.

    Our federal government liabilities far exceed GDP - We have NO economic equity or collateral to borrow against.
    How is government borrowing trillions today? Answer: Counterfeiting worthless dollars and stealing from dollar holders

    Did our grandchildren sign a contract or promise to pay for the generational theft of the selfish Baby Boomers? NO!

    IF our federal tax rate radically rose to 100% of GDP, we still could NOT meet our liabilities. If our tax rate is 100%, there will be nothing left to pay for bureaucrats, CEO’s, houses, transportation, electricity, food – NOT EVEN ONE PENNY TO BUY WATER TO DRINK. You would still have to work as much as ever, but no one in America would have ANY TAKE HOME PAY! The problem cannot possibly be solved by increasing tax rates. WE MUST RADICALLY LOWER LIABILITIES TO A SMALL FRACTION OF GDP. Vested interests will fight what is necessary with every fiber that is in them.

    Do you think that corrupt unaccountable 2010 lame-duck politicians that provided TAX CUTS for wealthy oppressive Wall Street parasites (making a billion dollars a year) will solve our problems with fallacious “Trickle Down” economics? HELL NO IT WON’T!

    January 2011, Republican House of Representatives reduced part of their operating budget by 5% ($35 million = 0.0000004 of U.S. Liabilities = about $0.10 per citizen per year). Eliminating 100% of all political pet pork projects, will only reduce our badly bloated budget in miniscule 1%.

    Will even LARGE spending cuts solve the near-term U.S. dollar collapse problem? Absolutely NOT - It is NOT even remotely possible!

    IF we reduce the ENTIRE federal budget to ZERO – Fire EVERYONE in the military, ALL government employees and contractors, and terminate all of our essential infrastructure repair projects, except for: (1) Social Security, (2) Medicare and (3) Medicaid, we still could NOT afford to pay for these three Baby-Boom-retirement entitlement programs out of ALL our tax revenues put together!

    Are you beginning to see how deep our debt has become. Avoiding total empire collapse now seems all but IMPOSSIBLE.

    The sad seeds have been sown for deadly worldwide economic collapse

    Governments have heavily taxed, borrowed, and overspent the money
    that should have been made available for benefits to their own people

    Ponzi schemes are in catastrophic failure around the world - Causing Riots

    Cairo Egypt Riots January 25 2011

    January 28, 2011, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak asked his Cabinet to resign, but even when
    the entire government of a nation is replaced, it does NOT undo decades of dirty-dealing damage

    87% of Americans want to replace our entire Congress - 96 members of the 2011 Congress were new
    Do you think our divided do-nothing Congress will solve our current crises before the next election?

    How can any government based on centuries of corruption transition to one that is less corrupt?

     

    Fiscal irresponsibility and deficit spending are the most-direct path
    toward Unsustainable Economic Collapse Catastrophe

    If USA's GDP is $14 Trillion, our national debt limit must be BELOW $7 Trillion

    No one can keep increasing their credit card limit forever - Eventually You WILL Go Bankrupt
    National debt near-or-above GDP is clearly a SUICIDAL Superhighway to Deadly Debacle

    We must STOP allowing our corrupt Congress to keep increasing our national debt limit ! ! !

    January 6, 2011 Letter to Congress from U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geitner:
    "Default would impose a significant, long-lasting tax on all Americans
    and all U.S. businesses, and could lead to the loss of millions of jobs.
    Even a very-short-term or limited default would have CATASTROPHIC
    ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES that would last for decades."

    It now appears that such a default on USA Liabilities, and
    total collapse of the U.S. Dollar, are drawing very near.

    When anyone goes bankrupt, no intelligent entity will loan them more money.
    WHEN America goes bankrupt, we will have to learn to live without ANY debt.

    Politicians have ignored predictable unsustainability for half a century:
    "Leave the problem to our grandchildren, when I will no longer be in office."

    The TRUTH finally rose to the surface in 2008 - The worst is yet to come.

    The mindless mediocre majority are still in TOTAL DENIAL of the TRUTH.

     

    The Social Security Trust Fund was ROBBED by corrupt Baby Boom Uncle Sam thieves for:
    tax cuts for the wealthy, the Bush / Cheney immoral O.I.L. war, and pork-barrel pet projects

    Baby Boomers overspent ALL of their Social Security funds long ago! Our next generation will probably receive nothing
    at all - exactly like those who invested billions of dollars in Bernie Madoff's criminal pyramid Ponzi schemes

    Should those who invested in Madoff's Ponzi scheme lose everything? Should those that invested in Social Security?
    How is Bernie Madoff any different at all than the corrupt criminal Uncle Sam?
    YOU are the victim of Baby Boom GREED!

    Baby Boom criminals must NOT ask their grandchildren to pay for their indulgent huge crimes of the past!
    Bite the bullet TODAY - Cut off Social Security for the criminals who created the U.S. dollar collapse,
    or lock them in federal prison for life where the multi-trillion-dollar government thieves rightfully belong!
    Don't even provide funds for their heath care or food in prison - Doesn't that seem FAIR to you?
    Let them learn how to grow their own food in prison, as their children may have to do very soon.

    Social Security Ponzi Scheme

    CNN news anchor Ali Velshi: "Is it fair to expect our grandchildren to pay for the money that this generation has spent?"

    It is IMPOSSIBLE for current low tax rates to pay for the American Baby Boom retirement programs plus any military defense expense. Tea Party imbeciles want much-lower tax rates, but they demand Ponzi-scheme Social Security and Medicare entitlement benefits that they were fraudulently promised – USA mediocre majority opinion is beyond ridiculous - Social Security and Medicare false promises were (and are) too good to be true.

    No political party can possibly lower taxes AND keep current life-critical entitlement and defense programs, despite their endless LIES. No one can violate the absolute laws of Physics, Nature, or Economics. No one can live for long on only a credit card if you have NO INCOME.

    IF politicians continue to refuse to make the difficult decisions (which seems inevitable), Total Collapse WILL be the final arbitrator of all disputes. It is probably already way too late to avoid catastrophic economic collapse (soon).

    Emerald Eco-City has a practical plan to solve all of the above, BUT our window of opportunity is closing fast.

    "Wait and see" created our current catastrophic crisis - Inaction can NOT solve it. Inaction is the highest form of Baby Boomer selfish immorality!

    If we fail to build Emerald Eco-City, the only remaining option may be to bankrupt our government AND corporations, and start over with almost nothing at all – perhaps even less than what America had in 1850. Will total collapse unleash more suicidal terrorists with unthinkable access to weapons of mass destruction?

    Suppose scientists calculated that a dinosaur-killer-sized asteroid was on a collision course with Earth. Should we do everything we can to prevent the end of humanity, or just "wait and see" if it is a scientific hoax?

    Our current collapse crisis cannot be solved by one individual voice crying in the wilderness. We will either unite and survive, or perish by inaction.

    We must radically reinvent our current governmental policies, or predictably suffer the consequences that all great empires have always done in the past.

    If by inaction we allow society to completely collapse, we might have to begin anew by “reinventing the wheel” from scratch.
    The mediocre majority would NOT survive such a predictable catastrophic calamity. Decide immediately, or prepare to suffer greatly.

    If you see any other possible alternative, please let us know. The crooks who created our crisis cannot correct it by immoral inaction.

    Do you think that AARP voters will allow gigantic Social Security / Medicare retirement entitlement spending cuts to balance our budget?

    We live in a generation of: "Ignore the TRUTH" - "Scientific predictions are wrong" - "Live for the moment" - "The future will take care of itself" - "I don't want to listen to any of your gloom and doom" - "All of our problems will just go away soon" - "Social Security and Medicare will be there for me and my children when we retire" - "My life savings are secure" - "The stock market and the dollar can never collapse" Can they?

    In 2009 (according to the Employee Benefit Research Institute), 52% of American adults had less than $25K USD in retirement savings. In 2010, 54% had less than $25K (which was worth less). Things are getting much worse for senior citizens, NOT better. Did American Social Security checks increase 18% PER YEAR over the last decade to keep up with devaluation of the U.S. dollar (relative to gold)? Did life-critical Social Security checks increase even one penny when food shot up 50% in only six months in 2010?

    Do you believe the government LIE that the Consumer Price Index (CPI) only increased 1.1% in 2010? The "creative accounting" (fraudulent) government CPI is designed to hide the Truth about our rapidly-dying dollar, so the government will not have to increase entitlement payments, and pay higher interest rates on our growing outstanding deficit-spending loans (which would bankrupt USA in only a few months). They keep changing the way misleading CPI is calculated to protect the guilty and cover up the things that are increasing the most (like food and fuel). The ongoing government fraud about low CPI inflation is like boiling a bottle of champagne - when the bottle bursts, it will surely result in total nearby destruction. Voters and the AARP are such shortsighted fools to tolerate these criminal government CPI lies. Collapse is very close, and liars deny the real CPI.

    Let's suppose that one of your "successful" Baby Boom relative dies an early death (due to poor lifestyle choices) and leaves you a million dollars, OR suppose you win the lottery and have a million dollars after taxes. Suppose you could find an FDIC-insured savings account that pays you 2%. Your million dollars would generate about $380 a week in interest. You would have to pay taxes on the income (added to any other income you might have). Tax withholding might be 20%, leaving you $300 / week.

    As gasoline prices continue to increase, and all fossil fuel availability declines, in a few years your net interest income on a million dollars may not allow you to drive your gas-guzzling SUV, or pay your utility bills. As the value of the U.S. dollar continues its current (or accelerated) rate of decline, the interest income on a million dollars may not even pay for imported necessities of life, or your daily bread, even IF your bank and the FDIC do not collapse (which they probably will soon).

    If there is no inflation in the future, and you could find a 2% savings account, you would have to have $2.5 million in that account to earn $50K every year to live on (before taxes), assuming that the value of the U.S. dollar does not fall to zero very soon, and that the FDIC survives (which is not very likely).

    How much would you and your spouse like to have to retire on? That number might have to increase by 18% PER YEAR - just to keep up with the current rate of U.S. dollar buying power decline (relative to gold). Even millions of U.S. dollars are clearly NOT the source of future retirement security.

    Maybe YOU will need to recycle aluminum cans and plastic water bottles to earn enough to barely live on (if recycling companies still exist at that time). Do you want to have to dig through trash dumps to survive, as many are already doing around the world today? When U.S. dollars are worthless, we may be no better off than any other poor nation, except for the fact that THEY already know how to survive without money, cars, gasoline, or electricity. Do you?

    Recycling Trash To Survive

    IF Social Security goes bankrupt (as is predicted and unavoidable), most of retired Americans (including much of the upper class) might sadly starve to death (without compassionate local food programs). Soup kitchen lines may very-well be much worse than in the USA Dust Bowl / Great Depression. EVERYONE's dollars may be worthless. Is that what you want for your parents, yourself, or children? Will YOU be able to support senior citizens if no government agency can?

    Baby Boomers created the crisis WITH NO CONERN FOR THEIR OWN CHILDREN. Do young struggling families owe all retired Baby Boomers an unsustainable luxury lifestyle like they have selfishly grown accustomed to? Should the crisis creators suffer equally along with their posterity? They frivolously frolicked the night away - Now THEY should pay the piper out of the money that they stole from their own children's future.

    How soon will we be forced to face the ALARMING Truth? - Shortsighted stupidity HAS serious consequences

    ALL democracies ALWAYS collapse due to Greedy-Majority Fiscal Irresponsibility
    - Baby Boomers are even worse

    No empire has ever planned to intentionally collapse - They just fail to have a realistic sustainable plan to survive

    IF America had followed our Constitution with a stable (gold and silver) currency, and we had begun to phase out petroleum after it peaked in the USA in 1970, and the OPEC oil embargoes in 1973, THEN we could have totally avoided the crises America faces today. Foresight is worth SO MUCH MORE than 20 / 20 hindsight, AND much more than forever ignoring history (as Americans are still doing today).

    The time to prepare for future collapse is almost completely exhausted. We have wasted the four decades that we once had. Eight U.S. Presidents since OPEC 1973 have failed to implement the "energy independence" that they ALL promised America. Social Security and Medicare can NOT deliver what they promised either. Each and every Congress kicked the can down the road, and passed the problem on to their heirs.

     

    The buck stops HERE - The dollar is literally going to DIE a sudden death

    If you think the U.S. dollar will be a solid investment for the next ten years, YOU ARE IGNORING THE LAST TEN YEARS.

    The consequences of inaction began to become totally obvious in 2008, BUT the mediocre majority and our dishonest elected representatives are STILL in complete denial, despite rock-solid PROOF of rapid dollar decline to only 18% of its former value in only ten years.

    Our inevitable 21st century future may be nothing less than suicidal chaotic anarchy. Was the immoral selfish “want it all now” excess of the immoral George W. Bush Baby Boom generation worth the deep debt and decline that we are now in? What will their immediate legacy be to our posterity? Will their own children remember them kindly? Are you pleased with the legacy that your generation is leaving behind?

    USA Collapse Is now (Almost) Unavoidable - Would You Be So Dumb As To Invest Your Family’s Future In U.S. Dollars? Is it even possible to have enough dollars, if they continue to become worth less tomorrow? Most billionaires may go bankrupt very soon. The oppressive top 1% may even suffer to most. Wall Street may be littered with may-more suicides than during the Great Depression.

    Adolf Merckle was previously number 44 on the Forbes list of the world's richest people, with a fortune of $12.8 Billion. He suddenly lost half of his net worth when the stock market crashed in 2008. He fell to "only" number 94, and committed suicide by stepping in front of a fast-moving train in 2009. Is this the type of predictable future that greedy Baby Boom Billionaires have prepared for themselves (very soon)?

    The next great American collapse of the U.S. economy will probably be MUCH WORSE than 2008, and possibly even The Great Depression. There may be no future possibility of a U.S.-dollar-based business-as-usual recovery. We will probably have to rapidly-and-radically reinvent the future (or die). There will be no place for Tea Party conservative obstructionists, or progressive mismanagers in the brave new post-predictable-collapse future.

    That is precisely why Zero Energy Design ® has invested so very-much time in defining the details of Emerald Eco-City, for the benefit of all humanity. We generously are charging you NOTHING for our many years of experience-based work on this material. It is our free legacy to a rapidly-collapsing world. We hope to help undo some of what the thoughtless, self-indulgent, greedy Baby Boomers have done to their own children's future.

    All you have to do is accept the proven Truth for free, and take appropriate actions today. You owe us nothing. You owe it to your family. Do NOT expect the government and corporations that created the current collapse crisis to solve it for you in the future. THEY will make it much worse, if you let them.

    Do you understand cause-and-effect? Can you read the obvious trends? Do the sure signs of the times mean anything to you?

    Do you trust in our failing U.S. dollar, OR in the solid science of sustainability? Do you care about the future for your children?

    What will our caring young parents do TODAY?

    Wall Street's Wicked Web Of Endless Dirty-Dealing Deceit - Do YOU want to work on Wall Street?

    Greedy Wall Street is based on the U.S. dollar, which we now know is based on nothing at all. Everything on Wall Street is interconnected and interwoven in cascading ways that no individual human, regulatory agency, or computer system fully understands today. Pull on one thread and the entire ornamental tapestry of misperception can begin to unravel in a matter of minutes. The 2010 Flash Crash was just one tiny alarming example.

    The evil Bush / Cheney administration encouraged deregulation of mortgage lending practices to stimulate home ownership (for people who should NEVER have been given a mortgage in the first place). The Bush housing bubble began to burst badly during his second deficit-spending term in office. All of us watched a cascade of American economic system failures: Bear Stearns stock price fell from $171 to $2 per share, before they were taken over by J.P. Morgan. The government-created Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac subsidized-mortgage companies (with an enormous $6 trillion in toxic debt) had to be taken over by taxpayers. Gasoline pump price shot up to $4 / gallon - bankrupting businesses and individuals, who then defaulted on their mortgages.

    The extremely-evil U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson allowed his former competitor Lehman Brothers to go bankrupt. This caused their insurance company AIG to default. We were told that AIG was "too big to fail" and had to be taken over by taxpayers. Most of Wall Street's greedy criminal government-subsidized mismanagers were "too rich to jail." Those executives who created the crisis paid themselves huge bonuses from angry-taxpayer subsidies.

    Bush, Paulson, and Fed-Head Bernanke stood before America and said that our economy would COLLAPSE in a matter of days if taxpayers did not immediately bailout Wall Street criminals with $700 billion with NO restrictions or supervision (much of it for Paulson's Goldman Sachs company). The Republicans wanted to hide the economic truth that they had created until AFTER the November election, but Wall Street came tumbling down in September 2008, with no full-employment recovery in sight years later.

    The obstructionist Republicans in the House of Representatives blocked the $700 Bush bailout, and the Wall Street Sock Market had its largest one-day point value loss in history. The Senate added an additional $70 billion of pure pork to the House bill. Out of shear fear, the $770B bailout then passed both houses of Congress, and was signed into law by the burning Bush.

    Did all of our serious economic system problems magically go immediately away? NO! Have insane Wall Street bailouts been a good investment for YOU? Does anyone on Wall Street or in our government have the first clue about how to salvage our selfish suicidal economy? Should we even try?

    Is there anyone anywhere that you can totally trust to manage your long-term future security? "When you look for ways to keep from losing your hair - DON'T TRUST A BALD BARBER!" - Dale Hartweg (my dad)

    The bank bailout receivers paid themselves tens-of-billions of dollars in unearned bonuses out or the money given them by taxpayers. Huge debt was passed on to our grandchildren. Instead of humbly acknowledging their greedy errors that created the man-made economic-system collapse crisis, and appreciating the bailout support from the frightened people, the Wall Street executives used the bailout to greatly increase their compensation, which rewarded them for their many immoral crimes. Long-overdue Wall Street regulation has NOT gotten much better today. Greedy criminals can still create a job-destroying critical crash.

    Instead of using the zero-interest-rate free money that our corrupt government gave the failing banks (without supervision) to invigorate Main Street, the greedy Wall Street banks used it to buy U.S. Bonds. In effect, we gave them interest-free money and they loaned it back to us at interest. HOW OUTRAGEOUSLY STUPID CAN OUR GOVERNMENT ECONOMIC ADMINISTRATORS BE? Is there no end in sight to our economic foolishness? Our government officials belong in an asylum for the criminally insane, NOT wasting taxpayer-provided scarce funds.

    What is the life-critical lesson to be learned? Wall Street is a chaotic system of interdependent shortsighted parasitic greed and deceit. Any attempt to regulated it results in clever derivatives and complex contractual constructs that bypass laws faster than legislators can enact them. PLUS, evil legislators are badly corrupted by endless bribes from the ones they are supposed to regulate - a serious fiduciary conflict of interest. There is a revolving door between Wall Street parasites and the U.S. federal government agencies. People like Obama's Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner HELPED CREATE THE 2008 CRISIS.

    Can anyone who owns anything valued in U.S. dollars expect greedy government officials to protect us from ongoing Wall Street crime?

    Are you willing to trade decades of labor for some digital bits in Wall Street computer systems, that are BASED ON NOTHING AT ALL?

    Wall Street Greed versus The World

    Should Success Be Measured In Billions Of Dollars?

     

    Billion-dollar achievements leading up to outstanding Wall Street "success"

    For some obscure reason that I may never understand, the Creator of the Universe set in motion a series of fortuitous complex interrelated events that have blessed me abundantly. My cup of life truly runneth over with great joy, for which I am ever so thankful indeed.

    Children do not get to pick their parents, but if I could have, I would have picked my own. My mother was the most-loving compassionate mother (and grandmother) I have ever known. My father was a brilliant energy research scientist who caringly spent endless hours and decades teaching me about the marvelous Laws of Nature. My 7-year-older sister helped raise me like I was her baby doll. No child could have been happier than I was (and still am).
    My parents told me that in the hospital nursery, I was the only baby with a big smile, while others around me cried. My baby pictures show a joyful bouncing boy. This thought became a self-fulfilling metaphor for most of my whole happy life.

    My personal success has been nothing that I did by myself. I most-certainly did NOT create my universe. All of it was a pure gift from our wonderful loving God. My many talents, abilities, resources, and lifetime experiences have all been generous gifts from God - designed specifically to prepare me for my ultimate destiny.

    I pray these very same blessings for all of my brothers, sisters, and children on Earth.

    Every healthy baby has the same creative potential. We must STOP training innocent children to accept mediocrity and conform to the norm of declining status quo.

    “I believe that children are our future. Teach them well and let THEM lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside.” - Whitney Houston “Greatest Love Of All”

    To be sure, there has been adversity in my life. BUT, every great challenge I have overcome has increased my problem-solving ability, and prepared me for my unfolding future.

    I could have died in the NYC World Trade Center on 9/11/2001, but for some reason, I will live until my God-given purpose in life has been fulfilled. I know not when that will be, but I am thankful for everything that has happened to me so far. I have lived a productive prolific life, and I now have nothing to fear from death, even if it happens today.

    My only concern is for those who may cry when the Spirit of God inside me returns to our timeless living Creator. I pray that those around the world who know-and-love me will celebrate my life and death, and we will soon be together in God’s great harmony of eternity.

    I believe that every human makes thousands of mistakes each and every day. “Perfection” is not possible among humans, but we have many mind-body mechanisms (like our sense of balance) that help us correct and compensate for our own continual errors, and those of everyone around us. Anything that we do infrequently, or for the first time, is usually done in a suboptimal way. It takes time to incrementally refine what we do. How many times are we born? How many times will we die? What happens in between? Can we learn from our many mistakes? What will our legacy be, and to whom? – Profound questions indeed.

    Because we know that we are flawed, we must forgive the errors of others (who repent), BUT then, help them correct their misguided course. Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who have sinned against us. (But if people return to the same ongoing mistakes, they have NOT changed, and were never forgiven at all).

    Proverbs 26:11: “As a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool returns to his folly.”

    If we are bitten by a deadly snake, we must quickly remove the venom, or die. So it is with those who refuse to forgive, and then live a life of hatred and murderous revenge.

    The question is: After making a mistake, do we learn from the experience and mature?

    I was taught that Thanksgiving is NOT just an unhealthy gluttonous feast one day a year. Giving thanks to God should take place daily at each and every meal – no matter where you are. Today, my wonderful wife and I always hold hands and pray at least these two things at EVERY meal: (1) “Thy will be done”, and (2) We give thanks in ALL things.

    Thankful universally-conscious people realize that they owe a great debt of gratitude to the rest of God’s Creation.

    We must all learn to live in harmony with Nature, and with each other.

    A thankful person is a joyful person. The more we give thanks to the magnificent Creator of the Universe today, the more abundant blessings we seem to receive tomorrow.

    “Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artificial poverty.” – Socrates (the father of western philosophy)

    “Content makes poor men rich, discontent makes rich men poor.” – Benjamin Franklin (the face on our hundred dollar bill)

    The world is full of good and bad things. People who amplify the good, and laugh at the bad, are a lot more fun to be around.

    I write about the many “funny” (bad) things in our world that need immediate correction, but I ALWAYS offer creative solutions as CONSTRUCTIVE Criticism about the endless evils of the day. The challenging goal of constructive criticism is to leave receivers with the feeling that they have been helped (which is not so easy to do).

    I admit that there was a period in my immature life when I measured success in dollars. In college, I became one of our country’s first young computer protégés. By the time I was a second-semester freshman, I was making five times minimum wage teaching a computing science lab class to electrical engineering graduate students. I was a member of a fraternity whose members had to be engineers, architects, or scientists. Some of my fraternity brothers were making minimum wage working in unhealthy fast food, etc. They envied my early income potential, and I admit that it made me (and my father) proud.

    Dad helped me get a summer intern job at one of our nation’s best energy research laboratories. They had one of the largest IBM mainframe computer installations in the world, with huge scientific databases, even by today’s standards. Fortune always found me on the leading edge of computing and energy technology.

    I eventually became the primary developer of the central component of the world’s most-successful IBM mainframe software system of its day – generating over $60 Billion worth of worldwide sales revenue.

    When inflation rose above double digits after the 1973 OPEC oil embargoes, FDIC savings accounts were only paying 5% interest before taxes. I watched my parents’ lifetime savings dwindle, even though their number of dollars increased.

    President Nixon ended the U.S. gold standard in 1971 (when USA hit Peak Oil). This allowed our worth-less U.S. dollars to rapidly decline in value when gasoline pump price rose 600% from 1973 to 1979. Government-mandated high inflation STOLE value from my previously-successful parents. This knowledge has influenced my financial decisions ever since.

    At the same time that the buying-power of U.S. dollars was rapidly going down, I bought-and-sold nine rental properties (as a hobby). They APPRECIATED at over 10% per year, and I cleared enough dollars to build my first 5,000-square-foot Zero Energy Design® home, with a vacation-resort-like 38-foot-long solar-heated indoor swimming pool. I trained year-round in my 10-foot-deep pool to prepare me for SCUBA diving around the world.
    I was most-certainly thankful and quite contented with the great gift of my fortuitous success of the day. I really thought that I had arrived. I celebrated life with my relatives and many friends in our 90-degree pool with snow on the ground.

    I knew that a declining-dollar savings account would be a mistake. I wanted something with REAL VALUE. But, I also wanted to minimize its monthly operating cost, just in case the cost of energy continued to rise (which it obviously has). This was the rock-solid foundation of over-three-decades of Zero Energy Design® success.

    My computing-career successes also continued to improve. I created an artificially-intelligent IBM “Solution Configurator.” It took an 18-month software development process and reduced it to only three weeks – which no one in IBM Research thought was possible.

    Million Air Sporty Cherokee IFR N4630T Airplane

    IBM gave me a big cash award, and I bought my sporty IFR Cherokee N4630T airplane to learn how to fly – just for fun. It gave me a whole new elevated perspective of God’s wonderful blue-green Earth, for which I will always be very thankful. The freedom of being a pilot in the clouds is breathtaking.

    My wife and I are both pilots, but we no longer fly, since we now feel that it is a waste of imported fuel, as our planet approaches the energy collapse of our unsustainable lifestyle.

    I was appointed to IBM’s Armonk Headquarters “Technical Strategy Assessment Team” to help steer my company’s future. No one in IBM could intimidate me. I was the only one at conservative IBM HQ who got away the wearing a beard in that day. My constructive criticism of the NON-LEARNING EMPTY BLUE SUITS earned me the reputation of a unique maverick. I often had to rely on this life-critical quote:

    Thomas J. Watson, Sr. (IBM President 1914 to 1956): “Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.”

    IBM executives made the terrible mistake of forming a bad alliance with the dishonest Bill Gates. It used to bother me that he made more dollars than I did. Bill has recently moved toward becoming a philanthropist, giving away millions of dollars to worthwhile needy people. I pray that Bill will continue mature to the point where he no longer has anything to fear from unavoidable death.

    In Armonk HQ, I did not hesitate to embarrass many IBM top executives, and I earned a few serious enemies. When IBM wanted to use other people’s software (Microsoft) and other people’s incompatible hardware (Intel) for the IBM PC, Ben Riggins (the father of CICS) and I told the technology planners that it would create IBM’s worst competitors. IBM executives thought that they would only sell 5,000 PC’s, and that their business-as-usual future revenue potential would be in mainframe hardware sales. They ignored Moore’s Law that clearly pointed to pervasive powerful PC’s. Ben and I were correct, but non-learning IBM blue suits prevailed.

    I eventually learned that one way to sway entrenched business-as-usual CEO’s is to get them to laugh at the stupid things they are currently doing. I attended five semesters of Improvisational Comedy classes (loved it) and found that it worked wonders in the business world.

    Scott Adams “The Dilbert Principle”: “The world has become so COMPLICATED that we’re ALL bluffing our way through the business day, hoping we’re not unmasked for the BOOBS we really are. I see the world as a Massively Absurd Endeavor, populated by people who struggle every minute to Rationalize The Silly Things They Do.”

    The Wall Street Journal said that The Dilbert Principle was the best MANAGEMENT book they had ever read. Every Dilbert cartoon that I saw posted in a cubical was a tool that I could use to help change the mind of an intransigent corporate mismanager.

    I eventually got frustrated in my leadership role, left IBM, and tripled my income as an independent leading-edge computing consultant to IBM customers who were pleased with the work I had done for them as an IBM employee. Once again, IBM had turned a valuable asset into a competitor.

     

    All of this prepared me for my creative contributions to Wall Street

    In 2001, I was the Chief Software Architect for “Sengent” (a contraction of “Sentient Agent”). We were located in luxurious Mizner Park in expensive Boca Raton FL (not far from where the first IBM PC was assembled). Sengent was a small think tank of Artificial Intelligence and leading-edge Information Technology gurus from MIT, Stanford, and Russian mathematics, plus some expert self-proclaimed well-paid “code monkeys.” (smile)

    We developed a distributed network of tens-of-thousands of real-time online Internet computers, with the fastest-possible Wall-Street-and-news-agency data feeds. Thousands of Sengent-connected computers around the world would simultaneously analyze quantitative and qualitative raw market data, and extract-and-consolidate immediately-actionable information in milliseconds. The Sengent systems could operate as a hands-off totally-automated trading system, picking which stocks (and derivative options) to buy and sell, without human intervention. Individual users could define their own personal dynamic market strategy and play with a virtual portfolio, until they got it right. We monitored every strategy, and quickly learned from the world's best and brightest.

    There’s an unlimited set of optional stock market strategies. No strategy works all of the time. Strategies are good under some conditions and bad at other times. Sometimes stocks are good, sometimes certain bonds, and sometimes real estate, etc. Our Sengent systems quantified changing situations in millisecond real time, and could radically change from one market strategy to another – many times faster than the very-best human on Earth. We could react to numeric-or-text news from half way round the world in the blink of an eye, before traders could read it on their computer display. When radical things happen (like a Flash Crash) happen, "quick draw" response time can generate huge profits.

    Our Sengent A.I. systems did not just crunch numbers looking for quantitative patterns and trends. They also used advanced machine-learning A.I. to read-and-assimilate text-oriented news feeds. We monitored the predictions of most stock market analysts (with no human intervention). We quantified confidence factors for every source. We knew precisely which people and situations were the most-effective predictors of what would happen in the short-and-long term. Knowing who to believe has value. Some market analyst suggestions would cause us to do the exact opposite, in some situations.

    For example: Merrill Lynch had a big immoral investment banking operation. They would find a depressed stock and buy it cheap – driving up the price. They then told their conflict-of-interest stock brokers to recommend the appreciating stock. When Merrill Lynch had sold all that they owned, the stock would return to its value before they had started their speculation scam. Merrill customers often lost big bucks to the greedy unscrupulous investment banking firm. Eventually the feds found Merrill Lynch guilty of terrible fraud and violation of their fiduciary duties.

    When our automated self-learning Sengent A.I. computers discovered the Merrill Lynch deception trends, we learned that when Merrill said BUY, it was often a time to sell short (buy PUTs). There were many other such profitable parasitic discoveries behind our closed doors. Few people in the world knew what we were doing, or that we even existed at all.

    I had a standing offer in my private Sengent office. I taped a one hundred dollar bill on my door. I offered it as an ongoing bet with anyone who was interested. I bet that at almost any time, I could make five stock market picks, and make at-least a 20% return on investment on four or five of them within only three weeks. A few intelligent colleagues accepted my bet, but I NEVER LOST. Would anyone on Wall Street appreciate such insight today? Many greedy stock market option traders aimed at 100% short-term returns, and frequently failed. I learned how to consistently make 20% in less than 3 weeks A hedge fund manager can turn that into a billion-dollar-a-year personal income.

    Sengent provided our system to leading-edge Wall Street hedge fund managers. Today, many of them are using similar advanced-technology automated-A.I. trading systems to make a personal income of over a billion dollars per year. It just takes knowing a few slimy selfish secrets.

     

    The slimy secrets and wicked web of Wall Street parasitic deceit

    You do NOT have to be a genius to make a billion dollars a year as a Wall Street hedge fund manager. You do NOT have to run a criminal pyramid Ponzi scheme as Bernie Madoff did. You do NOT need to lie or do anything illegal in this poorly-regulated back-stabbing money-making machine. You do NOT need anything but an I.Q. 100 mediocre mind - I have worked with several such rich dim bulbs. You do NOT need millions of dollars of backing, or a Harvard MBA. You do NOT have to invent an iPhone, or contribute anything to society in any meaningful way. You just have to be very selfish, with no moral conviction about doing great damage to the multitudes.

    Goldman Sachs is a supreme example. They bundled terrible toxic sub-prime mortgages together and then LIED to their unskeptical trusting clients that these were were good investments. Goldman then purchased credit default swap derivative insurance, which gambled heavily that these mortgages would be foreclosed and Goldman's clients would be badly damaged - losing billions of dollars. Goldman profited greatly by selling crap, and then profited much more when it was proven to be crap.

    The Bush Administration super-satanic Secretary of the Treasury was Henry Paulson - former CEO of Goldman Sachs. Hank allowed his previous competitor Lehman Brothers to go bankrupt in 2008, and then Paulson bailed out Goldman Sachs with a huge burden of unpayable debt on U.S. taxpayers - passed on as the Bush Baby Boom legacy to our innocent grandchildren. Pernicious Paulson and Fed Head Ben Bernanke intentionally drove down the value of the U.S. dollar (to reduce the value that the government would have to repay for the deadly debt they burdened us with). Goldman Sachs used their Bush / Paulson windfall to pay $11 billion in 2008 compensation to the criminal crooks who created our economic crisis.

    "Goldman is widely viewed as the greediest of the greedy Wall Street villains." ...
    "2010 bonus and salary total of about $15.3 billion spread out among the firm's 35,000 employees,
    or an average of about $435,000 PER WORKER ."

    This is where the criminal Henry Paulson sent a significant portion of your taxpayer bailout of big banks. Evil, destructive, Goldman Sachs should have been allowed to go bankrupt, just like Lehman Brothers! In November 2010, American idiots gave control of the House of Representatives back to Republicans,
    who had created the 2008 economic collapse by deregulating greedy unscrupulous Wall Street banks. America needs strong LOCAL banks - involved in the community - NOT WALL STREET PARASITES.

     

    "Rampant Insider Trading"

    Before the 2008 Wall Street financial system collapse, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) made it clear that they were gathering voluminous documentation about what they called "RAMPANT INSIDER TRADING." Criminals who were high-level executives and members of the Board of Directors of several large corporations frequently illegally informed billion-dollar-a-year hedge fund managers (at Goldman Sachs, Level Global Investors, Diamondback Capital Management, Loch Capital Management and others) about important information that would impact the price of widely-held corporate stocks. Even a Senior Vice President of blue-chip IBM admitted criminal insider trading.

    Can't these overpaid profiteers be satisfied with multi-million-dollar compensation? How much parasitic behavior is enough? Even all-American down-home Martha Steward was convicted of greedy criminal insider trading. "For the love of money is the ROOT OF ALL EVIL: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith (and the law), and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." - 1 Timothy 6:10

    The FBI has been their access to America's comprehensive wire tapping capability to record frequent illegal insider trading conversations. The criminal receivers then immediately used short-term, low-risk, inexpensive, (long or short call / put) stock option derivatives to make over a million dollars in only one-or-two days (great ROI for a stealthy clandestine white-collar crime).

    Of course we all know that historic insider trading has been rampant since the stock markets were first created. The details are seldom fully disclosed. BUT now, fantastically-greedy billion-dollar-a-year inside trading criminals have become so obsessed with their ill-gotten-gains that they continue to do it quite frequently, knowing (as Bernie Madoff did) that some of them WILL be caught. They think they are smarter than the FBI and SEC put together (which may very-well be true).

    Are you HAPPY that the 2010 lame duck Congress gave huge tax breaks to the top 1%, for their criminal violations of their fiduciary responsibilities?

    Revolutions are often the result of the actions of oppressive greedy organized-crime villains (selfish thoughtless non-learning profiteers and politicians).

     

    The World Is Full of the Fabulous Folly of Fantastic FOOLS !

    Do YOU want to get a Harvard MBA and go to work for Goldman Sachs - To help drive the final nails in America's coffin?

    In 2011, the "wealth discrepancy" between the greedy arrogant top 1% of American incomes and the working class is now the worst it has been since 1928 - just before The Great Depression and many suicides on Wall Street. Since Harvard MBA George W. Bush became president, 56% of all income gains have gone to only the top 1% of Americans, while average American income has declined.

    Sentier Research analyzed data from the Census Bureau's Current Population Survey and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. During the Bush / Cheney recession from December 2007 to June 2009, median U.S. household income (adjusted for inflation) fell by 3.2 percent, to $53,518. Under the Obama administration from June 2009 to June 2011, median income fell at more than double that rate, by another 6.7 percent to $49,909 (a total of 10% since the end of 2007).

    One third of of all income gains have gone to only 0.001 of greedy, oppressive American elite. The American Dream: The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Deny benefits to the needy. Pass on unpayable debt and a damaged environment to our grandchildren. Give unfair huge tax breaks to wealthy billionaires. In 2009, nearly 1500 American multi-millionaires paid ZERO INCOME TAXES. Multiple American corporations (like Thomas Edison's General Electric) now make many billions of dollars in net profits and pay ZERO U.S. INCOME TAXES, while transferring tens of thousands of jobs overseas. Obama made the GE CEO his Jobs Czar - how insane is that?

    Wealth Discrepamcy Clearly Created Depressionm

    The Occupy Wall Street protesters (that have spread rapidly around the world) have good reason to be upset at the way banks and corporations purchased the government, and oppressed the 99% majority. Since Ronald Reagan's tax cuts for the wealthy, the annual income share of the Top 1% of Americans has risen from a reasonable 8% to an immoral 23.5%. The last time that happened, it triggered The Great Depression. What will 2010's unbridled greed do to our global economy in the near future?

    Ronal Reagan Class Warfare Against the 99 percent majority Income Inequality Reaganomics

    President Franklin D Roosevelt: "The best customer of American industry is the well-paid worker." (Why is this so difficult for today's Top 1% to understand?)

    The American soldiers who fought against Hitler's holocaust, and the invasion of Pearl Harbor, had moral high ground. They sacrificed much, won WW II, and returned home as true patriotic heroes. They were called "America's Greatest Generation" - The world owes them a great deal.

    Industry provided good living-wage jobs, with benefits. The above chart shows that median income rose even faster than the Top 1%. It was a very-good time for all Americans. Only one person needed to work for a comfortable family living. Everyone is happy when the above yellow and blue lines rise in tandem.

    In contrast, inequality ignites worldwide protests, that may lead to a radical revolution against the Top 1%.

    The G.I. Bill gave U.S. WW II veterans a good education. Universities significantly improved. A new generation of creative well-educated engineers and scientists sent men to the moon in 1969. They became outstanding role models for baby boom students.

    During the shared-prosperity decades after WWII, USA retooled from making tanks to making cars that everyone could afford. Eisenhower focused on our future infrastructure. He committed ten times our national annual budget to build our essential Interstate Highway system. We made new commercial aircraft, instead of war planes. Average families could afford to fly to a nice vacation. The Top 1% did well, but so did the new emerging middle class. Those were "the good old days" of reasonable income equality.

    But then, the Top 1% paid to elect their commercial spokesman Ronald Reagan as President. He was heavily influenced with big-money bribes from oil companies, G.E., etc. Reagan eventually slashed the top income tax bracket from 50% to 28 %. It was a major windfall for the Top 1%, BUT, it was the beginning of a long-term income inequality disaster for the 99% majority of Americans.

    Reagan canceled Carter's energy independence policies, removed Carter's solar panels from the White House, and subsidized those who import foreign oil - setting the stage for the $4 GAS CRASH IN 2008, which triggered the Great Recession in September of 2008.

    Reagan promised to balance the budget, but his tax cuts, subsidizes for the rich, and reckless spending created the largest national debt crisis in history (at that time).

    Reagan's Rumsfeld and Cheney illegally sold weapons of mass destruction to Saddam Hussein. (He used American Bell and Hughes helicopters and chemicals to gas thousands of his own people, for which he was eventually hanged to death.)

    Reagan openly subsidized the Afghanistan Mujahideen, who morphed into al Qaeda, declared war on USA, and attacked our interests multiple times, including 9/11/2001. It has cost us 30,000 American casualties of war, and trillions of dollars to fight against terrorism THAT WAR-CRIMINAL REAGAN FUNDED.

    Reagan lied about illegally trading weapons for hostages in the Iran / Contra affair. Others in his criminal administration were convicted as his scapegoats, while Reagan was never prosecuted. (Disgraced president Nixon had said: "If the president does it, it is not a crime.")

    Michele Bachmann called Ronald Reagan a "miracle" for America. His administration was actually organized crime against 99% of Americans. We are clearly STILL suffering greatly today from the terrible path that the Reagan administration set us on in the 1980's. Partisan Politics Makes A Big Difference.

    Myopic "Trickle Down Reaganomics" Absolutely HAS NEVER WORKED. Cutting taxes on the rich and placing larger burdens on the 99% destroys millions of jobs. The greedy top 1% do NOT share their prosperity with the 99% who create it for them! GDP and human productivity have risen significantly. The Top 1% hoard their wealth-accumulation profit, while the median income remains essentially unchanged.

    Under G.W. Bush, Dick Cheney said that: "Reagan proved that deficits don't matter", which created the 2008 Great Recession Debt Crisis.

    Non-learning people, who ignore well-documented history, condemn themselves to forever repeat our worst mistakes

    The non-partisan Office of Management and Budget reported that during the three decades since Ronald Reagan's trickle down economics began, the income for the lowest 20% of American workers has risen 18% (an average of only 0.006 per year). During the same period, the income for the greedy oppressive Top 1% increased 275% (an average of 9.2% per year).

    Did YOUR income increase over 9% per year recently? If not, why not? You are a class warfare loser.

    Apple and Google pay their creative American workers very well, BUT, greedy plutocrats refuse to share their prosperity with the people who produce it.

    Today's Tea Party terrorists want to end regulation of greedy wealth-accumulation capitalists and bankers. They have no shame that they want to LOWER or eliminate the minimum wage regulation. 40% of Americans now live in poverty. 66% (two thirds) of Americans make less than $40,000 per year, while the purchasing power of the dollar continues to rapidly decline.

    The Top 1% (and the politicians that they have purchased) want to INCREASE the number of Americans living in poverty by LOWERING THEIR MINIMUM-WAGE INCOME EVEN MORE, REGRESSIVELY INCREASING THEIR TAX BURDEN, AND LOWERING MEDICARE, MEDICARE, and SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS!

    Paul Ryan's draconian budget that passed the corrupt Republican House of Representatives in 2011 would greatly REDUCE safety net benefits for our retired elderly and impoverished children, while lowering income tax to only 25% for billionaires (lower than Ronald Reagan's deep deficit created by his 28% tax for the top income brackets). Rick Perry wanted to lower income tax to only 20%, and Herman Cain wanted 9% income tax for EVERYONE. Why is such insanity popular with the Republican 99%? It is nothing less than TOTAL NON-LEARNING STUPIDITY.

     

    Billion-dollar-per-year hedge fund managers now only pay 15% tax on their huge capital gains. Arrogant defiant Republicans want to reduce capital gains tax for billionaires to ZERO! They have no shame at all. Why should detrimental Wall Street parasites pay lower effective tax rates than working-class people are now required to do?

    Reduced capital gains taxes for the highest-income Americans is every bit as criminal as subsidies for oil companies - the most profitable businesses in the world.

     

    Let's put it all in perspective. Bush / tax cuts for the Top 1%, and Obama's extension of them, have created the world's worst wicked wealth inequality. Only 400 American families have net worth that is greater than to total of 150,000 Americans!

    To subsidize the Top 1% of greedy wealth-accumulation parasites, our totally-corrupt federal government has borrowed $15 Trillion dollars in unpayable national - destroying our grandchildren's economic future, and leaving them with a crumbling infrastructure and massive unemployment.

    Consider this simple fact: America's wealthiest families have net worth in excess of $45 Trillion dollars. They could essentially write a check and PAY OFF OUR ENTIRE NATIONAL DEBT (ACCUMULATED SINCE RONALD REAGAN SET US ON OUR SUICIDAL PATH). These wealthy families would still have two thirds of their net worth ($30 Trillion). They would not even notice any decrease in their current extravagant luxury lifestyle. Has anyone even remotely suggested that they share their prosperity with the people who made them wealthy, as our society is on the verge of total collapse, very soon? Is there any candidate running on such an equitable platform?

     

    The 99% majority are not going to tolerate extreme injustice in America any longer

    If most of them get fed up, motivated, and energized against greed, corruption, and inequality, they can defeat any politician, change any law, and displace any CEO.

    President Franklin D Roosevelt: "The United States Constitution has proved itself the most marvelously elastic compilation of rules of government ever written."

    The 99% merely need to claim their Declaration Of Independence heritage for self rule: ". . . governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government" That day is now long overdue.

    Will the unavoidable 99% revolution be peaceful and democratic, or violent? The more that the selfish 1% resist the inevitable, the more violent it may become. If the Top 1% want to retain their control over the nation, they must SHARE THEIR PROSPERITY IMMEDIATELY, or be overthrown very soon. If a leader does not provide for his followers, he will have no followers at all.

    The curious thing is that when the greedy 1% refuse to pay half of Americans a fair living wage (with benefits), the less they will be able to spend on consuming things that make the Top 1% wealthy.

    Myopic greed almost always results in long-term decline

    Childish immediate gratification is immature and self defeating

    The non-learning, infantile, argumentative, U.S. Congress is making this point very clear indeed
    With only a 9% approval rating, serious, radical, democratic changes are about to take place in Congress

     

    Prosperity depends on investment in our future (education, infrastructure, technology, etc.). The prosperity enjoyed by the selfish baby boom generation was the direct result of the huge investment and integrity of those who won World War II. Eisenhower committed ten times the total U.S. annual federal budget to build our Interstate Highway system (which is now crumbling due to a lack of $2.2 Trillion dollars needed to maintain our roads and bridges). Almost everything we consume is delivered over Interstate Highways.

    Can anyone see how shortsighted the immediate-gratification baby boom generation became? Their long-term damage to our nation may be irreparable.

    Greedy CEO's are rewarded for TODAY's bottom line. To maximize today's profit, they slash R&D and future infrastructure investment.

    Shortsighted corporate compensation systems provide very-poor incentives for investing in the future.

    More-intelligent emerging nations are investing many times more than the USA in GDP-producing new technology, education, and infrastructure.

    American capitalism has lost the critical message of Johnny Appleseed: "Plant fruit trees for your grandchildren."

    If the wealthy 1% do not return to the roots that previously created our American prosperity, we may have no fruit in the future.

     

    Young people have worked hard to obtain college degrees, and now they cannot find living-wage jobs with basic benefits in their profession. Many of them are over $80,000 in debt. There may be no Social Security payments for them to pay back their students loans that remain after they retire.

    U.S. corporations are withholding over $2 Trillion from investment in the next generation's future. 100% of Corrupt Republicans voted against creating jobs to repair our crumbling infrastructure and put teachers, police, firemen and construction people back to work. Republicans voted against reducing payroll taxes by $1500 per year for an average family, so that Americans will have money to buy life-essential necessities. They would not even allow alternatives to be debated in public. The Republican alternative in the Senate only received 20 Republican Senator votes! They fear what would happen if voters learn the Truth about their total corruption by the Top 1%.

    Two thirds of Americans want Congress to pass Obama's Jobs Bill. Republican Tea Party terrorists reject the will of the vast majority.

    Every time Republicans vote against creating jobs, or for destroying labor unions, two things happen: (1) Obama's approval ratings go up, and (2) Congressional approval ratings go DOWN. At only 8% approval rating for our Do Nothing Congress, they are now hated more than any president in the history of America!

    Republican Tea Party terrorists are truly non-learning idiots who boldly reject the will of the overwhelming majority. How can they continue to be so STUPID ? !

    Even a self-serving politician who wants to get re-elected should have a little bit of common sense and integrity. Those who oppress the 99% majority obviously DO NOT.

    Dishonest Republican Pledge To America

    In September 2010, the habitual liars in the Republican Party hyped their Pledge to America with much fanfare, in order to win votes from gullible fools for their Tea Party Terrorist landslide victory in November. Top 1% big money special interest groups paid for campaign ads to spread the poison about the Pledge To America big lie.

    Republicans falsely promised that they would "end the practice of packaging unpopular bills with 'must-pass' legislation to circumvent the will of the American people. Instead, we will advance major legislation one issue at a time" http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1211/70278.html#ixzz1gY5UkhnU

    When there was heavy political pressure from 70% of Americans to extend the payroll tax cuts for middle class Americans, and restore funding for unemployment insurance at the end of 2011, John Boehner's evil Tea-Party-controlled House of Representatives totally violated their dishonest pledge and passed H.R. 3630. It bundles "must-pass" legislation with controversial legislation that clearly favors top 1% greedy parasites, oil companies, rolls back Clean Air Act regulations, deregulates and increases deadly industrial pollution, approves the environmentally-damaging Keystone XL tar-sands pipeline, allows profitable corporations to fully deduct expenditures for luxury items such as corporate jets and yachts in the year they are purchased, reduces funding for the Prevention & Public Health Fund, reduces Medicare reimbursement payments to hospitals who provide health service to those who are unable to pay for them, increases the cap on some insurance rate annual premiums from 10% to 20%, increases Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fees to consumers, increases the employee contribution to the Civil Service Retirement System from 7% to 8.5%, increases the employee contribution to FERS from 0.8% to 4%, eliminates cost of living adjustment and freezes Federal civilian working-class employee salaries. The Senate and President Obama refused to approve H.R. 3630.

    Did 2011 H.R. 3630 in any way match what the Republican Pledge To America that was promised to gullible voters?

    The violation of the Republican Pledge To America is similar to their violation of the Newt Gingrich Contract With America

    G.W. Bush: "Fool me once, shame on - shame on you. Fool me - you can't get fooled again." - UNLESS YOU'RE STUPID

    Politicians go to Washington to "support the people", but they stay in Washington to selfishly support themselves

    Every dishonest Congress person who voted for H.R. 3630 should have Articles Of Impeachment filed against them

    Do you think the Republican House Of Representatives will impeach any Republican? NO! They are above the law

    There should be many class action civil lawsuits filed for bald-faced Republican breech of contract

    $100 PLUS a corrupt politician's campaign pledge will not buy you a happy meal

    Those who tolerate and reelect sinister evil representatives support their own suicidal suffering

     

    The plainly-stated number-one-goal of Republicans is to make sure that Barak Obama does not get re-elected. They covet control of the White House and the Senate. To accomplish their self-serving goals, they clearly WANT the U.S. economy to collapse into complete disaster by the November 2012 election. Republicans WANT the unemployment rate to remain high, or even get worse. They have slashed hundreds of thousands of jobs for essential services. They have tried hard to wipe out labor unions (that supported Obama in 2008). Republicans are trying to make it more-difficult for voters in Democratic districts to vote. Republicans, and especially Fox News, are trying to discredit the valid non-violent complaints of the Occupy Wall Street movement - using outright LIES and ENDLESS DECEPTION.

    The KOCH BROTHERS and FOX NEWS HAVE FAILED! Time Magazine reported that the MAJORITY of Americans (54%) support the Occupy Wall Street protest objectives. In contrast, only 27% support the terrible terrorist tactics of the corrupt uncompromising Tea Party, despite huge corporate and bank funding for the Tea Party, and nearly no funding at for the very-effective grass roots Occupy Wall Street movement. History is on the side of OWS:

     

    Thomas Jefferson - Author of the U.S. Declaration of Independence
    Third President of the United States - ACCURATE PREDICTION:

    "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.
    If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation,
    then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people
    of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

    ". . . power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

    Occupy Wall Street Tents

     

    Andrew Jackson - Seventh President of the United States - On our $20 bill

    President Andrew Jackson $20 Bill

    Jackson was known as the man of the people - He was deeply concerned about corrupt corporations, banks, and Congress:

    "Unless you become more watchful in your states and check the spirit of monopoly and thirst for exclusive privileges,
    you will in the end find that . . . the control over your dearest interests has passed into the hands of these corporations"

    "I have always been afraid of banks"

    "I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its successful experiment
    that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives,
    and the rights of the people have been bartered for promises of office"

    What happened to "Liberty and Justice For ALL" ?

    Do patriotic citizens owe allegiance to those who deny liberty and justice to 99% of Americans ?

    Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson's prophetic words were very accurate
    The corruption of banks, corporations and Congress has only gotten worse !
    How much longer will the 99% majority tolerate greedy criminal oppression?

     

    Henry Ford: "It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system,
    for if they did, I believe there would be a REVOLUTION before tomorrow morning."

    It has taken America a century, but OWS is finally waking up to Henry Ford's reality - Revolution is long overdue

     

    Today's growing 99% Occupy Wall Street protesters are not entirely against Republicans.

    They are also critical of Democrat failure to bring about the changes that were promised in 2008.

    The Tea Party started out critical of both Democrats and Republicans (like Bush / Cheney's 2008 Great Recession). The serious problem with the weak-minded disorganized Tea Party movement was that they allowed Koch brothers funding, Rupert Murdoch Fox News LIES, and activist training programs to sway them over to uncompromising extreme right-wing radical political positions, which badly damaged America's economy and credit rating after the dramatic debit ceiling debacle. They REFUSE TO EVEN DEBATE HOW PROVIDE JOBS FOR AMERICANS. They insist on lower taxes for millionaires, who fund the Tea Party terrorists.

    Tea Party control of the corrupt House of Representatives has resulted in multiple near-miss attempts to shut down the U.S. government.

    What will become of the 99% people in the Occupy Wall Street movement? Will they organize their chaotic behavior into effective voter turn out in November 2012? OR, will big money turn them to the dark side, as the Koch brothers and Fox News did to the Tea Party in the 2010 election?

    CNN reported that there were Occupy Wall Street public protests in 951 cities in 82 countries around the world. http://15october.net/

    With Koch brothers funding, and Rupert Murdock's Fox News lies, the Tea Party badly corrupted the U.S. House of Representatives and damaged the entire world's economy in 2011. Corrupt Republican minority Senators have used the filibuster to block everything Obama has tried to do to create jobs.

    IF the 54%-to-99% Occupy Wall Street protestors could rally behind an effective leader (like Alan Grayson, et.al.), they could easily defeat ALL corrupt Republicans and Democrats, and force the removal of anti-constitution Federal Court Judges. Will it happen? Probably not, but it certainly is possible IF OWS can get their act together.

    We hope the very best for the worldwide Occupy Wall Street movement, but recent Tea Party history makes us wonder if they will be able to bring about long-overdue society-wide international change in the oppressive selfish wealth-accumulation behavior of the greedy top 1% of wealthy criminals who remain unpunished.

    Alan Grayson Explained The 99% Occupy Wall Street Protests In Only 30 Seconds
    (First ever standing ovation on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher)

     

    Why Occupy Wall Street? The corrupt politics that produced the protests
    (Must see video clip)

     

     

    Peter G. Peterson was the corrupt former U.S. Secretary of Commerce, and later the criminal CEO of Lehman Brothers.

    Peterson is now using his Media Empire to try to greatly reduce (or eliminate) Social Security for senior citizens.

    Social Security is funded by the payroll tax, which is capped at $106,800. This means that Social Security is a REGRESSIVE TAX: Millionaires pay a far-lower percentage of their earnings for Social Security than lower-income people. Peter Peterson pays the same amount in Social Security taxes as someone making a small fraction of Peterson's income. Pete's large income today is almost entirely capital gains. He pays only 15% capital gains tax, while middle class Americans pay about 25% income tax. The clear Republican Party Number 1 Goal is to make the rich much richer - at the expense of the naive middle and lower class. Tea Party fools support this plan. During the lame-duck 2010 Congress, Republicans would NOT allow any other legislation to progress until Democrats agreed to extend the unfair, deficit-accelerating, Bush tax cuts for millionaires.

    In the 1980's, Ronald Reagan raised Social Security taxes and reduced benefits. This had the shortsighted corrupt effect of paying for Reagan's 1981 tax cuts for the top 1% of wealthy Americans who had purchased his election. The 2001-and-2003 Bush / Cheney tax cuts for the wealthy further depleted Social Security funding, just as Reagan had done. It was the last straw that bankrupted Social Security.

    If Peter Peterson is successful in significantly reducing Social Security again, (because of the Reagan / Bush damage done) it will amount to yet another massive fraud and transfer of wealth. Trillions of Ponzi-scheme dollars specifically collected to pay for workers' retirement benefits will never be used for that purpose, and instead would merely have transferred the cost of our irresponsible government from reasonable progressive income taxes to the regressive payroll tax, further damaging middle class and poor Americans, who will never be able to afford to retire. Do you want a 68-year-old fireman with a hundred-pound backpack climbing a ladder to save your grandchildren? Revolution riots (like Greece and Italy) are now very close in the USA.

    Since 1973, every American politician has driven right through every flashing red stoplight of unsustainability, and ignored every opportunity to avoid total economic collapse (as every other previous shortsighted empire has always done before). In 2008, our front wheels hit the edge of the cliff, and our gas pedal is still on the floor - going faster toward disaster than ever before. Our children must now pay dearly for our four decades of selfish insanity.

    OIL Point of NO Return

    When America defaults on its impossible obligations, the worldwide impact will probably be much worse than the 1930's Great Depression.

    Many middle-class Americans are starting to realize that the elite profiteering Harvard MBA, Law, and articulate political LIARS are the source of our unemployment, soon-to-be collapse of the U.S. dollar, corporations, and government.

    Do YOU aspire to be like privileged Harvard University graduates - selfishly destroying the American way of life and Social Security for the mass majority? Will your mother be proud of you when you do? Will your children? Do you think Reagan and Bush regressive "Trickle Down" economics has ever worked?

    Harvard is the oldest institution of higher education in the United states, established in 1636 (a century before American Independence 1776). The Harvard shield still has the Latin motto: "VERITAS", which laughingly means "TRUTH." Harvard was founded by ministers who realized the need for training clergy for the new commonwealth - To spread the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ in our new democratic republic of "In God We Trust." Harvard was originally meant to be a "church in the wilderness"

    The institution was named for John Harvard, its first benefactor. Harvard received its Corporate Charter in 1650 and became a University in 1780. In the words of Harvard's founders: "After God had carried us safe to New England, and we ... rear'd convenient places for God's worship ... dreading to leave an illiterate Ministry to the Churches, when our present Ministers shall lie in the Dust ... it pleased God to stir up the heart of one Mr. Harvard, a godly gentleman and a lover of learning ... to give the one half of his estate ... towards the erecting of a college and all his Library." - It is ever so sad to see what a greedy, destructive, "demonic tool of the devil" Harvard University has become today - mentoring greedy young minds about how to unsustainably cause the demise our democracy. This is the TRUTH of the motto on today's Harvard University shield. John Harvard would be extremely ashamed! I most-certainly am. I highly respect the contributions being by many modern technology universities (like MIT), but NOT most destructive privileged parasites from business-and-law schools like Harvard Business (Bush), Harvard Law (Obama), and Yale (Bush).

    It turns out that the slimy selfish secrets of Goldman Sachs' parasitic Harvard MBA's on Wall Street are NOT difficult to understand. I can teach a greedy unscrupulous immoral 16-year-old how to become a burdensome billionaire by only working 20 hours a week at home. You just need to read one book, and retain 70%. PLUS, have access to a few thousand dollars of common computing hardware, unique A.I. software, and high-speed network data feeds.

    BUT, YOU MUST KEEP THE SLIMY SECRETS TO YOURSELF !

    If everyone knew how to pick the lottery winning number, the value of a winning ticket would be less than its $1 price. If everyone learns the slimy secrets of Wall Street Harvard MBA's, no one could make any money there at all. Hedge fund mangers know their slimy secrets, and they guard them very carefully from their competitive peers (as did Bernie Madoff). It is NOT a simple single strategy. It changes every day, and every minute. Automated A.I. agility has become a critical key.

    One way that billion-dollar-per-year hedge fund managers consistently make big bucks is through "hedging their bets." It is similar to the way that organized-crime bookies and gambling casinos make money - no matter what the outcome of most of their bets.

    Wall Street hedgers analyze trends and guess what the next market move for a particular equity will be. They use derivatives to leverage maximum parasitic profit if their guess is correct. They use automated software to pick the optimal time to get in and get out. Computers quantify thousands of possible short-term trading tactics and suggest the very best at each instant in time.

    Hedge fund managers also often hedge their bets by trading derivatives that make money when their guess is wrong, and the market moves in the opposite direction. They make money if the market goes up, or if it goes down. Self-serving stock brokers make money if you buy or sell, win or lose. They love "churn." Billion-dollar-per-year hedgers are often happy, even when less-informed investors lose billions of declining dollars. To be a Wall Street "winner" there need to be many naive "losers."

    The only way hedgers lose money is if the market remains unchanged for a long period of time. So, they use all input sources that are available to find times when a particular equity should experience an increase in unpredictable volatility. Suppose a company's profits will be announced tomorrow. You don't know if the stock price will go up, or go down. What would you do? Are there other times when the value of equities will be unpredictable? If a significant news event is published on a reliable wire service, can you react in milliseconds (as Sengent A.I. could do)? "Good" hedge fund managers do.

    Hedgers often bet that volatility will increase, or at least remain the same. Different equities are volatile at different times, under different conditions. Sometimes (as in a great collapse, or a flash crash) all stocks are very volatile. Parasitic Harvard MBA's love unstable volatility, even if it means that the entire economy is being destroyed. Wall Street motivation and rewards can be VERY BAD FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD. Wall Street's manipulative elite get richer, while almost everyone else suffers greatly economically.

    Sengent penetrated Wall Street’s covert cloak-and-dagger Harvard MBA parasitic immorality. I have often wondered if I should give away the details of their clandestine secrets for free, and bring them down to their knees (where John Harvard always wanted his students to be anyway).

    I know that greedy Wall Street parasites are doing a GREAT DISSERVICE to the entire world. I know why terrorists hate immoral NYC.

    I now know that I need not try to bring down corrupt, smelly, rat-infested Wall Street by myself. I have never actually tried.

    The self-destructive self-imposed suicidal collapse of the U.S. dollar will soon bring down ALL of Wall Street, just like every other great empire in human history has ALWAYS done to itself before. The TRUTH is inescapable: Wall Street is about to become its own executioner (even before NYC basements are flooded with salt water from sea level rise - caused by senseless, selfish, man-made, catastrophic climate change).

    The sprouting-weed seeds of NYC self-destruction are everywhere. It is merely a matter of time (perhaps sooner rather than later). The (1) rapid devaluation of the U.S. dollar, (2) rising petroleum prices, (3) mortgage foreclosures, (4) bankruptcies, (5) unemployment, and (6) widespread dissatisfaction with government, corporations, and Wall Street PROVE the point (to those with open eyes that can see the altogether-obvious trends).

    NYC World Trade Center 9-11-2001 Collapse

    I could have been in the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001 - working with greedy Harvard MBA hedge fund managers – teaching them how to use our Sengent systems to make more money faster. I could have died in an instant as the target of capitalist-hating suicidal terrorists.

    I now know that was NOT why I was created by the gracious giver of all good things

    I've thought long-and-hard about the proper way to live the rest of my finite life, so I would have nothing to fear from my own unavoidable eventual death. I no longer measure success in billions of dollars, possessions, or wasteful petroleum-burning big-boy toys.

    9/11/2001 had a profound lasting impact on me. 700 Cantor Fitzgerald fund managers died in the World Trade Center suicidal terrorist attack - some were Sengent friends. Accumulation of billions of dollars is worth nothing, IF you lose your life in an unpredictable instant act of suicidal aggression. Should we die for dollars? Is that the ultimate goal of great greed?

    Within a few weeks, I left Sengent in October 2001 and stopped supporting hedge-fund managers forever. I went into deep introspection and searched my innermost soul. Where was my treasure? It was time to grow up and decide what to do with the rest of my finite life on Earth.

    I knew how to become the master of Wall Street. I also knew how to design healthy zero-emission buildings that did not need to be connected to utility companies. What would my personal legacy be? - (1) Greedy Wall Street parasitic profiteering, OR (2) Gracious giving back from the bounty of the endless great gifts that I've received from God?

    9/11/2001 was a major change in my lifetime goals and specific habits I'd had for so long

    Joyful Aging, Zero Energy Design, and Emerald Eco-City are the direct measurable result of my search of the Spirit that is deep within my soul. The sad first-wave of America's economic collapse in 2008 proved to me that I am on the right track toward the ultimate solutions. I watched Wall Street billionaires lose half of their lifetime accumulation of fleeting temporary wealth and some commit suicide.

    I confess and repent from my many previous mistakes. I know I will never repeat them again. Decades ago, I matured beyond my Corvette, race cars, dune buggies, motorcycles, speed boats, and airplane. Imported-oil-burning toys are part of my PAST that I now regret.

    After 9/11, I stopped wearing jewelry and neck ties; cut way back on eating meat; bought a Prius, and trademarked “Abundant Energy In Harmony With Nature.” The Internet distribution of my 5,000 page encyclopedic ZED eBook material grew to 134 countries around our needy world, and you are reading my work right now. I have paid to provide it to you for free - that you might help change the suicidal course that humanity is now on. Please do.

    I am certainly not a billionaire. My wife and I have enough to live a simple, comfortable, compassionate life on Earth. I’m free to add to my extensive written legacy almost every day. I have the time to read many interesting things all week long. We are prepared for the next large wave of economic collapse, and neither of us have anything to fear from death. I hope you appreciate our life’s work, and that you can assimilate the most-valuable lessons that we’ve learned. We will appreciate your constructive feedback, but you free to remain anonymous if you like - no registration is required for any of our valuable free websites (that our statistics show are being studied around the world).

    There is no doubt in my mind that I could have chosen to become a multi-billionaire, but I believe that the path I am now on has many times MORE REAL VALUE, especially if U.S. dollars become worthless very soon. I wish I had learned this lesson earlier in life. I hope this insight helps you.

    When an architecture graduate student (like Syed Raza Hussain Shah in Peshawar Pakistan) writes me to request assistance with his thesis on Zero Energy Design, I feel like my investment in the joyful future of our entire world has been very worthwhile. Please let me hear from you.

    I have thoughtful Nature-loving friends in at least 134 countries who appreciate my investment in helping them (for free).

    No one can accuse me of being a corrupt greedy profiteer. I want to share the great gifts that I have with those who care.

    I'm spending my own time and money so that you can read and enjoy my accumulated knowledge at no charge whatsoever. You may learn from my decades of great success, or you may ignore me as you see fit. The choice is totally yours.

    I have not taken a vow of poverty. My family has more-than-enough to get by. In many ways, average Americans now have lifestyle options that are better than the ancient Egyptian Pharaohs had.

    I feel abundantly blessed and ever-so thankful for the bountiful gifts, wisdom, and experiences have received.

    I love giving back to help Nature and all of humanity. Such a life is its own reward on Earth.

    The only greed that I have is that I want the very best for ALL inhabitants of planet Earth.

    It is not the destination that we seek, but the journey itself that is our great prize.

    Our Creator knew the basic needs that we would have long before we were born, and provided for them bountifully. I accept these many gifts from Nature with great gratitude, and I vow to give back in return. I feel a warm fuzzy integral connection with God's entire universe.

    There may be pie in the sky by and by, but how do you feel about your life TODAY?

    There are not enough dollars in the whole world to get me to give up what I now am doing - to work once again as a greedy Wall Street parasite, especially since dollars may soon be worthless. To my own grandchildren I say: Invest your life in things with REAL VALUE.

    How about you? What will you do, when you grow up too? Do you still want to work on Wall Street?

    Want for your brothers, sisters, and children what you want for yourself.

     

    Something Serious To Laugh At

    At IBM, I was their top consultant in my field. They wanted to use my unique skills to sell solutions worth tens of millions of dollars to the top Fortune 100 companies, but I was a research scientist and hard-to-understand technology geek. So, IBM sent me to Executive Suite Presentations Training, to polish my human communication and sales skills.

    I learned that one of the very best ways to convince the CEO's of multi-billion-dollar international companies to change their obsolete business-as-usual is to get them to laugh out loud at the STUPID things that they are doing today. Scott Adams' Dilbert perspective goes a long way toward accomplishing this radical revolution goal, in a humorous, non-violent revolutionary way. Scott continues to inspire my own confrontational innovation methodology.

    The following is an outrageously "funny" situation comedy. The only thing is that it is NOT a fictional TV show. Sadly, it is reality in modern declining America. As you read these words, please take time to let then soak in. Laugh out loud about the unbelievable "joke" that the United States has devolved into in the last few years. THEN think about what YOU can do to help bring about long-overdue radical reinvention of a new, sustainable, more-prosperous nation to leave to our children.

     

    Imbalance of Trade in the Dumbest Nation since the Roman Empire Collapsed

     

    Just before the self-imposed suicide of the Roman Empire, luxury goods poured into Rome from all over the known world, but their major exports were garbage, human waste and unprecedented pollution. Ancient Rome was a one-sided, unsustainable, consumption-based, greedy, laughable, arrogant, stupid society. America is on the exact same, non-learning, unsustainable path to ultimate shortsighted disaster.

     

    Today, there are a large number of cargo super ships bringing us many goods from China. In 2011, America imported $400 billion of products from China. WalMart International headquarters moved to China. WalMart became the world’s largest retailer. WalMart is now essentially the marketing subsidiary of China, Inc. You can’t find a parking place on the huge WalMart lot on Black Friday. Chinese imports have made Sam Walton’s family one of the richest in the world.

     

    The number one thing that USA imports from China is high-tech state-of-the-art computer equipment (over $50 billion per year). Half of Americans have purchased at least one Chinese product from Apple alone. Apple employees over 750,000 high-tech workers in China. Do we really want to accelerate sending American jobs and wealth to China?

     

    EVERYONE in America is badly addicted to all kinds of cheap Chinese goods. China invests about 9% a year in expanding their rapidly growing infrastructure, which yields a handsome 9% per year growth in Chinese GDP. China's education system has greatly improved in recent years. They no produce millions of superior problem-solving scientists, engineers, and mathematicians.

     

    In stark contrast, America slashed our infrastructure investment below 3%, and Tea Party Terrorists want to reduce infrastructure and education spending even more – leading to even worse recession, substandard education, reduced innovation, even more lost jobs, and eventually to an unprecedented near-term Super Depression.

     

    Bad balance of trade, gluttony, and low investment in infrastructure and higher education are clear predictors of eminent catastrophic collapse. America's historical growth and prosperity was based on aggressive investment, superior education, productivity, quality, innovation, frugality and a prosperous middle class. Lack of these things is the source of rapid decline, competitive disadvantage, and complete economic collapse.

     

    ONE OF THE MAJOR U.S. EXPORTS TO CHINA IS CARS - Not new ones – Our obsolete cars are first crushed into heavy cubes, and then sent to China on otherwise-empty large cargo ships that are making the return voyage to China.

     

     

     

    Detroit has always demonically designed cars with PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE. American cars are intentionally NOT easy to maintain or upgrade to new improved technology. Replacement parts and repair bills can cost much more than buying a new car. This is no accident. Greedy profiteering American auto makers want you to discard your old cars, send the scrap metal to China, and then buy Detroit’s new, more-expensive, highly-profitable models. Banks love this strategy, because lending institutions make a lot of money on car-loan interest payments. The selfish upper-1% American executive motivation is the exact opposite of what is good for our nation as a whole. Car makers have a very-strong ECONOMIC DISINCENTIVE AGAINST building long-lasting cost-effective efficient cars that are inexpensive to operate, maintain, and upgrade. (In places like Mexico and Cuba, mechanics have learned to make their own replacement parts, and keep cars from the 1950's running cost effectively - Not so in disposable America.)

     

    Crushed Cars On Their Way To China

     

    American advertisers appeal to arrogant conspicuous consumption motivation, base human sex-drive hormones, and instinctive self-serving behavior, (which is the exact opposite of early-American pioneer humility). Selfish modern American’s have been indoctrinated by Madison Avenue to believe the big lie that the terrible “planned obsolescence” policy is both “normal” and good for society. They say that it increases GDP, and provides jobs, but the jobs are overseas, and the domestic cost to replace low-quality dead products is excessive.

     

    After making Whirlpool refrigerators in Evansville, Indiana for 54 years, Whirlpool laid off over 1,100 workers, shut down its U.S. plant and moved it to Mexico in the summer of 2010. If you check the customer reviews of Mexican-made Whirlpool refrigerators today, you will now find a high percentage of them where the expensive compressor failed during the 1-year warrantee, or only a few months after the warrantee expired. It costs about $600 for the customer to repair an $850 25 cu. Ft. double-door Whirlpool refrigerator, precisely designed for cheap low-quality planned obsolescence. What happens to discarded planned-obsolescence major appliances?

     

    Low Quality Dead Major Appliance Graveyard

     

     

    Badly mismanaged Whirlpool, and most other appliance manufacturers, have rapidly declined to near-ZERO commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. All that matters to their greedy Top 1% executives is this year’s bottom line – To Hell With Tomorrow – The executives be rich and retire, just like vulture capitalist Mitt Romney did, and then they will only pay 15% capital gains tax, while most of the rest of America pays much more.

     

    The recent decline in appliance quality is making the price for an extended warrantee increase accordingly. If the extended warrantee price on a new product is high, then they must know that the quality of their product is quite low. If product failure was rare, the original warrantee would be long, and an extended warrantee would be inexpensive. Even so, an extended warrantee still costs less than a $600 refrigerator compressor replacement. Buyer Beware. The quality of many products sold in America is spiralling down the toilet.

     

    When W. Edwards Demming taught Quality Assurance to Japan in the 1950’s, he explained that low quality means: (1) higher-cost for rework and warrantee repair, (2) loss of customer satisfaction, (3) loss of market share, and eventually (4) bankruptcy. When the news of Whirlpool’s significant decline (since 2010) becomes widespread, the company will probably collapse. Is an $850 refrigerator that lasts 15 months a “bargain”? Is the lowest initial purchase price the best choice? Incandescent light bulbs are cheap, but their lifetime "total cost of ownership" is extremely high.

     

    Whirlpool and General Electric appliances are no longer as good as they once were. Such companies exist today only on the inertia of their obsolete reputation.

     

    I would almost rather buy a no-name Japanese appliance than anything from Whirlpool or GE. Do NOT buy Whirlpool stock (WHR)!

     

    If you buy a Whirlpool major appliance (or most other brands) purchase the extended warrantee – it is part of the true cost of ownership. When deciding on one option versus another, assume the worst case that your appliance will become worthless at the end of the warrantee period (original or extended). Do NOT gamble on the well-established trend of declining appliance quality and durability sold in America today.

     

    Appliance service, with-or-without a warrantee: You may have to wait two weeks for the parts to be shipped to your local appliance service center, and to subsequently schedule the second repair visit. It has happened to me twice. The food lost in your fridge was probably expensive. What do you do without a refrigerator for two weeks? They do not provide you with a free loaner while you are waiting for their slow customer service.

     

    More-expensive brands of imported major appliances are having similar problems. Paying more does not necessarily mean that you will receive better quality in today’s greedy corporate world (as it once did to our parents). Poor quality is now almost guaranteed in almost everything.

     

    American health care is the most expensive in the world, with much-worse coverage and outcomes than the civilized world. Spending more does NOT mean that you get more. It does mean that greedy Top 1% people make more profit. This is the declining future legacy for most of shortsighted low-quality non-learning America.

     

     

    The word “STUPID” means: (A) a slow-learning person, or (B) one who repeatedly makes bad decisions - again and again. When I use this word, I precisely mean both.

     

    SEX SELLS STUPIDITY!

     

    Profiteering advertisers teach gullible stupid fools that if they borrow money to drive the newest fashionable car, their sex life will improve.

     

    A gas-guzzling, extra-loud, 500+ horsepower, bright-red convertible is even “sexier” (albeit STUPID).

     

    Every car show positions skinny sexy girls with exposed skin standing next to their product

    Don’t pretend that sex-based advertising has never influenced you – male or female

     

    Sexy Red Corvette Girl

     

    The truth is that very-poor people, who cannot afford any car at all, have a prolific sex life – They are making way too many babies in our over-populated starving world of 7 billion people. Advertisers have made nudity a USA national norm. Much of today's commercial advertising would have been considered pornography, not so long ago. Do we really need much more sex? Or are we just plain jaded?

     

    In contrast to sex-based USA marketing campaigns, China limits families to only one baby (we don’t agree, but) U.S. Republicans want to restrict the use of contraceptives, and therefore INCREASE unwanted pregnancies - How double dumb is that?

     

     

    The ONLY reason that exporting crushed cars to China is cost effective, is because America produces very little that China wants to import. It also assumes that the petroleum burned by huge ocean-going ships is cheap – which is becoming less true every year. This is CLEARLY UNSUSTAINABLE – The whole import / export shipping system must collapse - when oil availability declines, and the price of oil increases significantly (which is 100% guaranteed for our children). Investing in a cargo ship that has to be amortized over 30+ years is a REALLY STUPID BUSINESS-AS-USUAL IDEA. Many investors will go bankrupt during the near-term collapse and transition to sustainable future living. 

     

    What does China do with scrap metal from America? They melt it down in foundries that contribute significantly to global warming and unhealthy air pollution. China does NOT have the environmental regulations that the USA Clean Air Act mandates (and Tea Party Terrorists want to abolish).

     

    Rapid-growth industrialized China is now completing a new very-dirty coal-fired power plant every week or so. By encouraging China to pollute earth's atmosphere, does our foolish country think that Chinese air pollution will not harm America?

     

    Shipping jobs, wealth, and scrap metal to China is more “out of sight, out of mind” moronic myopic nonsense.

     

    The quality of steel exported by China has a bad reputation of being very poor. When government agencies allow the use of cheap Chinese steel to save a few dollars, they violate our Buy America Act – sending more jobs overseas. They also experience cost overruns and schedule setbacks, because most Chinese steel does not weld properly. This is a well-document problem on multiple bridge projects, and on the Canada / U.S. Keystone pipeline. http://www.aisc.org/newsdetail.aspx?id=21398

     

    One thing that the Chinese do with the American scrap metal to build large steel cargo shipping containers. They are essentially recycled U.S. cars. The original expense of the steel was paid for by non-learning U.S. car buyers, (who continue tolerate the profiteering Detroit "Planned Obsolescence" insanity). Many of these Chinese-made cargo containers make a single trip to USA, and then they pile up near huge harbors (like the Port of Los Angeles in Long Beach California). It is just too expensive to ship empty containers back to China, The scale of this growing moronic unsustainable phenomena is breath taking. It MUST stop soon. America can NOT survive much longer with such a terrible imbalance of trade. Either we start exporting more goods back to China, OR we will be forced to stop importing from China.

    Chinese-Made Cargo Containers - From recycled American "planned obsolescence" cars

    Unsustainable Chinese Steel Shipping Containers

     

    Since USA does not export much to China, our west coast has a growing glut of steel shipping containers. People are trying to figure out what to do with these $3,000 stackable boxes, like making cheap houses, portable construction offices, permanent immobile storage, garages, workshops, Faraday cages to protect remote electronic equipment, etc. I have even designed Zero Energy homes and greenhouses around multiple 40-foot-long "high cubes." Such buildings cost much less, are constructed faster, and are more durable than wooden structures. A simple exterior facade hides how they are constructed.

     

    The great excess of cheap steel shipping containers would not exist, except for America’s terrible unprecedented imbalance of trade with China. YOU contribute to the growing problem every time you buy something from China, use American infrastructure that was built with Chinese steel, or when you pay someone who does. Reelecting corrupt legislators who favor such disastrous unbalanced foreign trade policies is another aspect of our gargantuan economic problem.

     

    Foreign countries put heavy tariff taxation on imports of American manufactured goods. WalMart (and others) will not let the U.S. Congress reciprocate - Creating Imbalance

     

     

    THE NUMBER ONE U.S. EXPORT TO CHINA IS OUR TRASH

     

    Recyclable paper and scrap metal exports to China add up to over $8 billion per year. China cost-effectively uses America’s garbage (that might otherwise wind up in an expensive, offensive, U.S. landfill) to make things that China then sells back to us for a good profit (even after considering the increasing international shipping costs, due to the rising price of unsustainable worldwide oil supply).

     

    This STUPIDITY shifts many millions of jobs to China, and greatly devalues the purchasing power of U.S. dollar.

     

    Your local WalMart is full of products that are made in China, and shipped to USA in low-quality cheap cardboard boxes. Visit a store while it is restocking shelves, and you will see the floor cluttered with many empty boxes labeled "Made In China." Go behind your WalMart store and you will see tons of flattened boxes wrapped up for export back to China. China has badly destroyed its own native forests, by making paper, disposable chopsticks, etc. They need Americans to kill our native trees, turn them into disposable paper, and export our discarded paper and cardboard back to China, so China, Inc. can send us more cheap goods in disposable cardboard boxes.

    This is a huge transfer of wealth, jobs, and resources from badly-mismanaged America to our overseas "trading partner."

    America’s annual trade deficit with China is about a net $300 billion.

     

    U.S. shortsighted imbalanced trade policies make China, and our other trade partners, incredibly wealthy, while our corrupt federal government ends up begging China to unsustainably lend us trillions of dollars to fund our exploding, burdensome, national debt, and our war-and-welfare programs, plus tax breaks for U.S. billionaires.

     

    We have stolen the future of our grandchildren, so we can waste energy and paper, drive sexy cars, and inefficient SUV’s. The growing prosperity of better-managed, growth-oriented China is the clear undeniable result.

     

    This isn't just simple stupidity - It is Roman-Empire-style SUICIDAL INSANITY

     

    For one thing, PAPER SHOULD BE ELIMINATED ALTOGETHER in the modern electronic age. Nothing should be printed.

     

    Boxes should be reusable (not just recyclable). There must be a balance of trade, with no more goods being imported than exported. Reusable shipping boxes and containers should be sent back-and-forth in more harmonious balance.

     

    Another issue is that we should use more-durable materials, instead of steel in cars that are designed on purpose to rust away in a decade. Aluminum airplanes last a century. Steel cars rust away in one-or-two decades. Modern carbon composite materials are stronger, lighter, and more-durable than steel. We are truly a non-learning, depraved, wasteful, disposable nation.

     

    Early-American Pioneer Frugality: “Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.”

     

    Our 21st-century suicidal society MUST learn how to pay much-more attention to the “total cost of ownership” and “cradle to cradle” reuse and recycling – OR, we will catastrophically collapse quickly, just like the Roman Empire did centuries ago.

     

    Those who ignore well-documented history condemn themselves to repeat its worst mistakes, as we are clearly doing today.

     

    Aerodynamic future electric cars can be designed to be upgradable for many decades. Electric wheel motors can be easily exchanged for newer technology in the future, almost as quickly as changing a tire. When newer battery technologies surely become available (soon), older battery packs should be modular so they can be cost-effectively exchanged for superior new power storage modules, whenever they become available.

     

    WE MUST STOP BUYING AND CRUSHING PLANNED-OBSOLESCENCE CARS AND APPLIANCES!

     

    We should begin by ceasing to waste money on the business-as-usual stupid products of today. You vote with your dollars – DEMAND BETTER!

     

    Our Zero Energy Design® Emerald Eco-City proposal solves ALL of the above problems with far-superior alternatives

     

     

    The Near-Future Declining Intrinsic Value of Gold

    We have been publically predicting economic collapse (due to bad energy and economic policies) for many years. The great recession of 2008 was merely a last warning sign before a much-larger economic catastrophe occurs in the near future.

    Since 2008, a number of alarmists have been promoting their books or profit-making recommendations about how to prepare for the total collapse of the U.S. dollar. They begin with a semblance of factually-truthful trends, and THEN they sell their product. We have no such product to sell. We provide our time and the support of this website as a free altruistic philanthropic legacy to a very-needy world.

    In contrast, scam artists first accumulate gold or silver as it is going up in price (compared to the declining U.S. dollar). They point out the coming currency crises, and then they SELL you their gold or silver at a historically-high price. IF precious metals are such a great investment, WHY ARE THEY SELLING IT TO YOU - WHY NOT KEEP IT FOR WHAT THEY PREDICT WILL HAPPEN? You can detect scam artists when they do the opposite of what they advise you to do. Do NOT buy gold or silver from someone who recommends it, but is selling it!

    December 14, 2011, the price of gold fell to $1565 per ounce, due in part to problems in Europe. The $300+ speculative premium in gold (mentioned above) evaporated. People and central banks who paid nearly $1900 may have lost significant net worth.

    If an investment advisor has an "inside secret" that will make you rich, (1) Is he doing it himself? (2) Has it made him rich? (3) Has it made ALL of his clients wealthy too, or are they losing money just paying his commissions? Does he clearly reveal the underlying risk, and how much others have lost by following his advice?

    Some fallacious fools like Glenn Beck are paid significant dollars to promote the accumulation of gold (in stark contrast to the founder of his own religious faith who taught that gold could PREVENT one from entering the kingdom of heaven). For thousands of years, billions of people have perceived great value in gold. Many have worshiped it and made earthly gold their only god. Will that continue to be true in the 21st century?

    Fox News has advertised EndOfAmerica1.com. It is deception by an accused scam artist. You can use your favorite Internet search engine to follow the news: Stansberry SEC. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filed fraud charges against Porter Stansberry, but since he supports Rupert Murdoch's Republican bias, and attack's Obama, Fox News is glad to take Stansberry's advertising scam money, and pollute their weak-minded gullible viewers with questionable investment advice.

    In our discussion about the coming collapse of the U.S. dollar, we have no hidden agenda. We are NOT trying to sell you gold or silver - In fact we think there are good reasons (below) for you to NOT invest in them. We are not trying to sell you anything. There is no way our message can possible be an investment scam. We are merely trying to inform the world that (1) We are on a suicidal economic path, and (2) There is a much-better, sustainable lifestyle available for those who have a functional brain.

     

    Thousands of years ago, gold was falsely believed to be a RARE "precious metal", reserved only for Royal Pharaohs, Aristocrats, and wealthy celebrities. Today, we know that this is FALSE. The Earth's crust is saturated with a huge supply of gold. Industrial mining has made real gold available to billions of earthly humans. If people want more gold for a good reason, it is currently possible for technology to meet the demand. It only costs about $300 or less to extract an ounce of gold out of most modern mines. Gold is a finite natural resource, just like oil - But for the moment, supply is temporarily keeping up with demand. This will not always be so. We can and must eliminate the demand for gold and oil.

    Caterpillar has sold all of the gold-mining equipment that they can manufacture for the last few years, as the dollar rapidly declines relative to gold. American Caterpillar stockholders are now heavily subsidizing the manufacturing of mining equipment in China, for use in China, as USA approaches total dollar collapse.

    Gold mining is a deadly, environment-damaging process. It creates roughly 20 tons or more of waste rock disposal for each ounce of gold produced (depending on the quality of the raw ore). Mining companies are not required to repair the 1500-foot-deep huge open pits that they create.

    Very-deadly gold mining chemicals kill workers and the local people who drink from the underground aquifers. Despite industry propaganda, all gold is DIRTY. There is no such thing as safe, clean gold mining. Does recycling dirty gold suddenly make it "clean"? ALL demand for gold of any source or kind INCREASES gold mining environmental damage. Arrogant, decorative, "blood diamonds" are foolishness similar to wearing gold.

    Gold is typically found in sulfur-rich rock. Mining it contributes to ground water pollution, and acid rain. These acids leech through huge rock pile "tailings" and liberate other deadly toxic metals, such as cadmium, lead, arsenic and mercury.

    After gold ore is removed from the earth, the widely-dispersed gold dust must be separated from thousands of tons of rock. Rubble is crushed, piled up, and sprayed with cyanide, which leaches out the gold, AND emits terrible poisons that badly damage the delicate surrounding environment, killing workers and nearby residents.

    A TRUE ENVIRONMENTALIST SHOULD NOT WEAR PRETENTIOUS GOLD-OR-SILVER JEWELRY, OR OWN "PRECIOUS METALS" AS AN INVESTMENT - DO YOU?

     

    Some people will temporarily profit greatly from the collapse of the U.S. dollar. Caterpillar gold mining equipment stock price rose from $30 to over $100 in less than two years (well over 300%) - an inverse relationship with the declining U.S. dollar.

    In the Nevada county where there is a gold mine, unemployment is one half of the rest of Nevada.

    If you could produce something for $300 that sells instantly for $1500, would you try to rapidly grow your business? It is like rapidly pumping past-peak oil out of the ground and depleting your unsustainable resource as fast as possible - leaving very little for your posterity.

    Recent intensified gold mining is quickly increasing the supply of high-demand gold (and badly damaging the environment). The gold supply / demand ratio is going to be a bumpy road in the predictable future. The current trend is NOT sustainable in a straight line for long, as more mines around the world produce much more gold. When the market price of gold is less than the cost to mine new gold, the increase in supply will stop. Do you think that it is possible for gold to return to $250 per ounce, when it costs more than that to mine it? The answer could be YES, IF a viable replacement for gold is developed (soon).

    The value of the dollar may eventually go down - no one can predict it with certainty. The dollar value of gold may go up and down, until the dollar becomes worthless, and perhaps even the value of gold (in the near future?). The dollar price of gold most-certainly will NOT be stable. Uncertainty is the great plague of most investors (except for parasitic speculative "hedgers" who rely on, and increase, price volatility). The 2008 rapid rise and fall of oil price between $145 and $35 per barrel was greatly amplified by greedy self-destructive Wall Street speculation.

    Will Rogers 1930: "We never will have any prosperity that is free from speculation till we pass a law that every time a broker or person sells something, he has got to have it sitting there in a bucket, or a bag, or a jug, or a cage, or a rat trap, or something, depending on what it is he is selling. We are continually buying something that we never get from a man that never had it." In hindsight, Will was very correct. America STILL has done almost nothing to end the Wall Street parasitic selfish speculation that caused the Great Depressions and the 2008 Recession.

     

    20th-century technology produced very-cheap, durable, gold-colored costume jewelry. For a short time at the end of the 20th century, thousands of pretentious poor people wore cheap, heavy, gaudy, gold-colored "bling" chains around their necks, etc. Gold-colored jewelry has since become the sign of a silly simpleton. Even wannabe movie stars are wearing cheap imitation costume jewelry.

    It has NEVER made sense to gild a lily. Unadorned beauty is so much more valuable than an arrogant ugly ornate gaudy old haughty. Gold jewelry obviously draws negative attention to serious selfish over-inflated-ego insecure character flaws.

    Even gold watches have become bold symbols of ignorant obsolescence, in our modern world of portable hand-held Internet video and GPS connectivity. Most young people don't wear watches. Watches have become symbols of the non-learning out-of-fashion unnecessary past.

    The future value of real-gold, silver, and blood-diamond jewelry is already moving toward ZERO, just like wearing dead animal fur, owning ivory, or gas-guzzling 1960's V8 cars with whitewall tires. Do you WANT to look like a poor pretentious obsolete uncaring old fool? Why would you pay money to do that? Future generations will NOT need gold-or-silver trivial trinkets.

    Gold does have valuable industrial uses today, as do diamonds, silver, copper, platinum, palladium, steel, etc. Landfills are full of billions of things that have small quantities of precious metals (like gold-and-silver electrical contacts, etc.). We MUST have low-cost superior future alternatives. Silver used to be a critical part of the photographic process, but it no longer is - in the digital smart phone age. The industrial need for gold and silver will continue to change as new lower-cost alternative materials emerge.

    Necessity is obviously the mother of invention, and the precious-metal supply-versus-demand answer is being demonstrated in worldwide laboratories TODAY. It is merely a matter of learning how to produce new nanotechnology materials in large-scale cost-effective quantities (in a few years?).

    Bucky balls, nanotubes, nanopaper, graphene, manufactured flawless diamonds, etc. now offer the realistic POTENTIAL to replace all of the above, with much-lower-cost, higher-volume radical new far-superior industrial materials that may very-soon make ALL of these things totally obsolete - of essentially NO future intrinsic value to anyone.

    Do you want to gamble your life savings that accumulating gold and silver at their all-time high price is a rational long-term investment strategy?

    There seems to be no future limit to the question: "How stupid can you get?" (although Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and Donald Trump come close - smile)

    Gold has seen a recent rapid price rise as the direct result of increased governmental organized crime counterfeiting, deficit spending, and self destruction of the U.S. dollar. BUT, how long will gold have any INTRINSIC value to anyone in the future? You can't eat or drink gold. You look silly if you wear it. It won't make your SUV, truck, train, ship or airplane go. You cannot spend it at WalMart.

    If your neighbors learn that you own a lot of gold, will your family be safe?
    Will you keep a gun handy to kill people who try to steal your gold?
    Will you burn in Hell for killing needy people?

    "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt,
    and where thieves break through and steal"
    - Matthew 6:19

    Silver and gold have I none, but such knowledge as I have give I thee - Acts 3:6

    What will this yellow shiny stuff be good for in tomorrow's predictable nanotechnology electronic world?

    You won't need a heavy gold brick for a paper weight - THERE WON'T BE ANY PAPER IN THE NEAR-FUTURE PAPERLESS SOCIETY

    Birds, dolphins, trees and flowers don't need gold for any reason today. IF humans survive long enough to develop visionary nanotech (in a few short years), there may not be anything called a "precious metal" ever again. Water, food and nearby friends may soon be very precious, but dollars, oil, gold and silver probably will NOT, regardless of what popular get-rich-quick scam artists say today.

     

    Let's Put The U.S. Dollar In Perspective

    For the moment, the dollar is a short-term rapidly-declining medium of domestic-and-international exchange. Americans work for dollars, and merchants still are in the habit of accepting dollars for their valuable goods and services. Zero Energy Design still accepts dollars for our eBook materials. (When the dollar is worth zero, we plan to give all our legacy materials and assistance away for free to the needy adaptable people who survive, expecting nothing but emotional appreciation in return.)

    The Creator of the Universe blessed us with great success. We owe a great deal to the posterity of humanity.

    We keep a few dollars in our wallet and savings accounts for immediate daily needs. We still have some shares of stock in entrepreneurial American companies that are growing a sustainable business and helping our environment recover. We own no gold or silver bullion investments at all.

    I never wear any kind of jewelry - not even a watch. I've never had any tatoos or body piercings. I wear clean comfortable clothes. I am secure. I no-longer need starched shirts or neckties to proclaim aloof arrogance. When executives visit me, I ask them to remove neckties, etc. and get comfortable too.

    I've helped generate $100 billion in revenue. Do NOT try to intimidate me by dressing for domineering business success. A gold ring in your nose or tongue really turns me off. I am NOT a slave of expensive trendy fashion. We are all equal in the eyes of the Creator of the Universe. If you don't agree, then do not seek assistance from me.

    We live well within our means. We own real estate with no mortgages or debt of any kind (other than convenience cards that we always pay off completely every month). If our economy does not collapse before we die, our beloved children will inherit our remaining material possessions. I have tried to train my precious children to contribute to society and be prepared to stand on their own, with no fear of death.

    We do not own any deadly weapons. We will NOT kill anyone in order to protect our remaining assets, even in a total collapse anarchy. We owe each other compassionate brotherly love, understanding, and forgiveness, NOT hate or revenge. We are gun control advocates. It is better to die with no fear of death, than to violate any of our deeply-held moral beliefs, which could jeopardize our eternal soul. We take "Thou shalt not kill" literally.

    "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" - Mark 8:36

    After the senseless shooting of congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, 70% of Americans believed that there was no need to improve American's gun control laws. One poll found that 6% of Republicans and 13% of people affiliated with Tea Party groups feel that violence against our current government is justified. The words and cross-hair symbols of popular political hopefuls have influences many millions of militant terrorists. America now has 4400% MORE violent murders each year than civilized nations (where I have lived) that ban guns (even for the police). How can violent murders escape damnation? One third of people shot to death in American homes are killed by a gun that they own. Argumentative Republicans, Tea Party, and NRA lunatics WANT American to continue as the MURDER CAPITAL OF THE WORLD - no other country even comes close - ABSOLUTE INSANITY!

    In stark contrast, I have established meaningful friendships with people who appreciate our generous contributions of knowledge to the world. We certainly invite YOU to become one of our good green friends - living in harmony with Nature and support for each other. We unselfishly want for our brothers, sisters and children every good thing that we want for ourselves - including a safe, secure, sustainable future.

    We do NOT think that U.S.-dollar-based assets are a secure repository of value for the foreseeable future in our own lifetime.
    Solid documentation of recent rapid monetary-devaluation facts and economic trends PROVE how True this has become.

    We are prepared to totally write off ALL our U.S. dollars, when the U.S. dollar totally collapses (soon?). R U ? What will you do?

    Our earthly treasure is a lifetime of accumulated knowledge about how to live in harmony with Nature, and with each other.
    We appreciate you pursuing it as you are doing at this moment. Thank you. Seekers of Truth in 134 countries are doing the same.
    We hope you enjoy our life's work, apply it, and add to it.

    The Rise and Demise of All Great Empires - LESSONS NOT LEARNED FROM THE PAST

    Historically, all great empires rise and inevitable fall. America (the most wasteful, inefficient, unsustainable, obsolete-energy consumer in world history) may now be due for a great Past-Peak-Petroleum economic-and-government COLLAPSE that is worse than anything in the relatively-short history of our young experimental nation.

    A new empire succeeds when it offers something superior to what existed before.

    Great empires collapse when the conditions that empowered their success no longer exist - usually within a few hundred years of their initial triumph.

    When any human institution gets lazy or too aggressive, and ceases to meet the needs of the majority of its subjects, IT WILL FAIL very soon, often in a major revolution, or at a minimum by simple decline and disloyal dissolution.

    Countless academic authors have studied this predictable rise-and-fall pattern of all man-made forms of government.

    We claim no special insight into the past. We do not suggest that we can improve on what has already been published about previously-failed empires, but in this material we try to apply lessons that have been frequently overlooked, and offer a Superior Future Form of Governance Possibility that embraces our proven Abundant Energy in Harmony with Nature ®.

    The following is merely our own simplified high-level summary of a sample of some previously-failed empires.
    (Much more low-level detail is available from many other sources.)
    We just want to explain our position from a high-level perspective for you to understand.

     

    All empires rise, peak, and eventually fall as another rises out of its ashes
    Throughout all of earthly history, no form of human governance has been without serious flaws

    There is no flawless sustainable government in place today that should be imitated tomorrow

    When current governments predictably collapse, what SHOULD replace them ?

     

    Catastrophic Climate Change - Radical Human Adaptability

    Only about 6,000 years ago (within written human history), North Africa was a lush fertile grassland that supported a wide diversity of plants, large animals, and humans. Ancient cave paintings show happy people swimming in an area that today is uninhabitable, hot, dry, blowing desert sand.

    Dramatic rapid climate change took place in half of one human lifetime. The Atlantic Ocean natural-convection "conveyor belt" stopped circulating excess equatorial heat toward the North Pole. North American natives experienced extreme cold and had to move south, while lush green North Africa turned into the huge Sahara Desert. Many human inhabitants who resisted radical lifestyle change died like dinosaurs. Can you see anything similar to what is happening today?

    The climate change crisis turned into a wonderful cultural opportunity. The more-intelligent, adaptable, minority of North African learning entities quickly abandoned their traditional homes and migrated toward the fertile Nile River valley, when their once-abundant grasslands and swimming holes continued to dry up.

    It was a time of "survival of the fittest" most-resilient human beings. There was NOT time for their DNA to evolve in a single generation. It was a matter of mental mobility creating a can-do culture of rapid revolutionary change - which is exactly what our world disparately needs (but lacks) today.

    The North African catastrophic climate change brought the best-and-brightest adaptable people of the day together for technological-and-cultural exchange. It was the solid human foundation for two millennia of the rapid-growth of the new Egyptian Empire.

     

    Egypt

    Ancient Egypt Map The cradle of civilization is constantly evolving and moving from one location to another as many things change. Small Egyptian tribes moved north along the Nile River. 4400 years ago, one ruling family became the master of the entire Nile River Valley. They set out to conquer the rest of the world.

    Annual Nile River floods and droughts were an environmental problem that had to be quickly solved if they were going to survive. Egyptian leaders wisely encouraged the study of mathematics and astronomy to help predict life-critical floods and droughts.

    They eventually accumulated the largest repository of written human knowledge in the Great Library of Alexandria (the city named after Alexander the Great who conquered Egypt and became a Pharaoh). The Alexandria repository included perhaps half a million priceless ancient scrolls. (Christian religious leaders who wanted to limit public access to scientific knowledge burned down the Great Library centuries later.)

    The term “Pharaoh” is derived from ‘’pr-aa’’, which means “royal palace.” Pharaoh came to mean a “living god”, often said to be divine descendants of the Egyptian god “Ra”, in union with a human virgin mother. The people trusted their living deity to protect them, which was effective for hundreds of years.

    To provide for their growing number of subjects, Egyptian Pharaohs wisely organized their workers to build flood-control dikes, dams, and reservoirs in the dry desert - to deal with seasonal over-abundance and insufficiency of water from the Nile River and Monsoon Rains. Egyptians created harbors along the Nile River that were used to transport huge blocks of stone for use in their unprecedented enduring construction projects.

    Working to provide for their own survival was an acceptable goal for the submissive Egyptian people to work toward in a unified way, in support of their royal palace living god. Stone workers, scribes, artisans, and their supervisors were appreciated and paid particularly well.

    Huge unprecedented resources were invested in the structural engineering and construction of their Great Pyramid burial chambers for the god-like Pharaohs, which still stand proudly thousands of years later. After death, inscriptions on their tombs show omnipresent Pharaohs communing with Ra and simultaneously defending the people against the evil forces of the underworld.

    Egyptians developed efficient specialized trade with Greeks, Arabs, and China. The local people benefited from the knowledge and skills of a diversity of North African and other remote cultures.

    Centuries later, lazy self-satisfied Pharaohs no longer led their military troops in battle, but stayed within their opulent comfortable royal palace, and allowed more-aggressive growing Arab armies to defeat their armies on the battlefield – sometimes killing every last Egyptian in the battle.

    A primary source of ancient Egyptian energy was muscle power. Oppressed-and-mistreated Hebrew slaves abandoned the Pharaohs, reducing their source of production.

    Egyptians overexploited local resources in an unsustainable way. Once again, local climate changed catastrophically, and the source of water and food suddenly dried up 4200 years ago. That same climate change event impacted the entire geographical area to Turkey and Persia. It was part of ongoing Pendulum Swing Climate Change .

    Pepi II Neferkare was the last of the great Egyptian Pharaohs. After his death and burial, the people lost confidence in Pharaohs as gods that could protect them. The Egyptian Empire collapsed suddenly, and construction of pyramid burial chambers ended for two hundred years.

    Enduring stone-wall hieroglyphics from 4200 years ago describe Egypt's great collapse. People brought their most-valuable gold-and-silver possessions to purchase a small measure of grain. The sons of princes were smashed against stone walls, and the common people resorted to eating their own children. Climate change caused ghastly cannibalistic collapse that demonstrated the very worst that starving humans can potentially become. It was NOT their strategic plan to become cannibals, but failure to plan for the precedented predictable climate change future resulted in what they inevitably became. Does this sound at all familiar today?

    Suppose you accumulate wealth in preparation for the predicted great collapse, and starving hoards smash down your door. Will you kill them to protect your precious possessions? All of us must die one day. Do you want to die as a murderer denying your accumulated wealth from the poor? Will you live long enough to see the ground littered with emaciated dead baby bodies? Is there a much-better way to live abundantly in harmony with Nature TODAY? Does sustainability matter?

    As the Egyptian Empire dissolved, the resourceful adaptable people returned to a system of small local Nile River tribes just to survive. The number of Nile River Delta agricultural settlements dropped twenty fold. Once again, those who refused to change fast enough died like dumb dinosaurs. It is a common theme in the collapse of foolish great empires. Do YOU think collapse will never happen again in modern times? Is your unsustainable lifestyle based on denial of the Scientific Truth?

    Something similar MAY be in our own very-near future, after the highly-predictable worldwide (near) future catastrophic collapse. Our Emerald Eco-City website describes many different possible collapse scenarios that are all converging on the immediate future. Our experience-based materials document how to SOLVE every last one of them in harmony with Nature. Do you care about living a sustainable happy future? Do you think there is any unsustainable thing in your lifestyle that must be immediately changed for the better? What will YOU do if the rest of the world continues on the self-destructive path it is now on? Go along for the ride to suicide?

    Only the best-and-brightest most-ingenious flexible-and-adaptable learning entities may survive and thrive to take advantage of our wonderful future opportunity of living an abundant new lifestyle in harmony with Nature (which Zero Energy Design passionately wants for EVERYONE).

    God's great bounty is patiently waiting for us to wake up, but when the catastrophic collapse finally occurs (very soon), it may be far too late to respond before the majority of humanity painfully starves to death. How desperate will they become as everyone around them begins to die? Will there be great wailing and gnashing of teeth? Will some humans living today become cannibals, as the Egyptians and others have done before? Is it too painful for you to even imagine? It won't be as bad as eternal damnation (Matthew 23), but it may feel like hell on Earth to watch your own family suffer needlessly because of unsustainable stupidity.

    It may become the worst thing ever among billions of modern humans. Is anyone paying attention to history, or the similar predictable future trends? Those who ignore history condemn themselves to repeat its many mistakes. Resistance to long-overdue lifestyle change is sometimes deadly suicide. Are we dumb dinosaurs, or more-intelligent adaptable mammals? How long will it take us to "reinvent the wheel"? Will our suicidal collapse precipitate the total end of all humanity on Earth? Will myopic fools soon be replaced by more-intelligent dolphins that know how to live in harmony with Nature (without gold or oil)?

    Do you think that this material is from a fanatical alarmist, or from a simple observant concerned historian? Should the predictable future continue to be ignored while we just "wait and see"? Do you think the final collapse will take decades or days? What if you are wrong? How long did the September 2008 warning wave take?

    Some fools say: "If such a collapse happens, I won't be the only one in deep trouble." That's obviously true, BUT will YOU be one of the few whose family survives and thrives abundantly? Will you live as well as dolphins do without the hand of man?

    Matthew 6: "Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? ... Your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

    Jesus' followers had to chose between accumulating money, or seeking harmony with the Nature of God. No one can serve two masters. Jesus taught that accumulating silver and gold PREVENTS one from entering the kingdom of God. He was not just talking about pie in the sky - The bounty of Nature and godly abundant life literally began in the perfect Garden of Eden - a very-real place on planet Earth.

    Man has not yet completely destroyed God's gorgeous garden, but we are right now killing 50,000-to-100,000 acres of life-giving trees EVERY DAY. Atmospheric oxygen content falls, as pollution and climate-changing greenhouse gases increase. The unsustainable short-term suicidal trend is rapidly accelerating.

    It is interesting that multiple ancient religious scripture sources describe paradise on Earth as a garden, when evil profiteering humans want to replace God's green garden with concrete, steel, petroleum and hot asphalt. "They paved paradise And put up a parking lot" - Joni Mitchell

    The selfish pursuit of money is the root of all evil. Greedy profiteers strongly oppose tree huggers, environmentalists, humanitarians, universal health care, equal high-quality education, and providing for the truly needy. What profit is compassion? What value is a tree in my big black parking lot full of gas-guzzling SUV's?

    The LOVE of God's Creation ( Nature and each other ) is the proven path to eternal security - God's will ON EARTH, as it is in heaven. We must want for our brother what we want for ourself. Whatever we do to the least of God's creation, we do unto God, AND TO OURSELVES. Shall we elevate all of Creation, or all die of greed?

    No matter what your religious point of view, destroying our delicate habitat so you can accumulate worth-less declining U.S. dollars is extreme insanity. The salvation of our nation can NOT be based on gold, silver, devalued U.S. dollars, nuclear power, biofuel from food, or unsustainable fossil fuels. Sunshine, wind and rain are free.

    Prayer without action is NOT the answer. When we pray "Thy will be done" we must begin to DO God's will in harmony with Nature.

    "You must BE the change you want to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi

    The Creator of the Universe provided ABUNDANT SUSTAINABLE RESOURCES for humans to live very-well in the Garden of Eden ON PLANET EARTH - even better than dolphins or birds do. All we need to do is to freely receive God's many great gifts, and STOP KILLING NATURE'S GARDEN, ON WHICH OUR LIFE DEPENDS.

    Evil men have thoughtlessly corrupted God's perfect Garden of Eden plan. We MUST study the Scientific Provable Universal Laws of God's Nature, return to our God-given abundant-green-garden lifestyle, and only then will we be able to survive and thrive in happy harmony with Nature's great bounty. And, with each other in brotherly compassion and enduring loving kindness, free of earthly wants and worries about our future security.

    OR, would you rather become like an Egyptian cannibal - desperately eating your own children as you starve to death?

    How is passing $14 Trillion of immoral debt and a destroyed environment on to our children any different than cannibalism?

    The Egyptian Pharaohs' visionary goal of conquering the world failed, for multiple good reasons of UNSUSTAINABILITY.

     

     

    Ancient Greek Acropolis

    Greece

    Ancient Greek academics developed exceptional powers of scientific observation and reasoning.

    They invented the modern approach to western medicine (the Hippocratic Oath), philosophy, literature, architecture, and academics – centuries before Jesus was born. The once-great Greek Empire knowledge and prosperity are enviable in all of human history. Greek wisdom is still the foundation of all modern western culture, and elements of some of its great religions. The oral tradition of the Christian New Testament was written down for posterity by Greek-language scribes (not in the Aramaic language that Jesus spoke to his mostly-illiterate followers).

    Greece constructed entire solar cities where every building was oriented to absorb low winter sun and reject high summer sun. They considered cultures that lacked this critical solar energy knowledge “barbarians” (like American Institute of Architects and community planners still are today). The ruins of Solar-City Priene on the southeast slope of Mount Samsun overlooking Lake Bafa are still visible today. Thousands of years later, no other earthly city is so well laid out for solar radiation and beautiful southern views to this very day.

    Greek history is firmly based on mythical stories about epic gods and superhuman heroes. The superhero motif was common in multiple cultures in that time frame. For example, Genesis 7:6 says that Noah was 600 years old at the time of The Great Flood – certainly not a normal modern human – suspiciously mythical to skeptics. How did sea level rise to cover 29,000-foot-high mountains in only 40 days? Where did all that water go in only 150 days? Were the Laws of Nature suspended? Must we believe by blind faith that all ancient writings are literally true scientifically? Is the Earth fixed on its foundation with the sun rotating around it?

    Tall tales about larger-than-life superhumans provided a conceptual multi-cultural context for unscientific, political, motivational, religious morality stories, which also accompanied the growth of most successful previous empires. Fighting for a virgin-born living god made brutal empires better bloody killers of their enemies.

    Before the creation of Greek Democracy 2500 years ago, there was no public education program. Only very-few children of "aristocrats" were privately tutored to read, write, and play melodies on the musical instruments of the day. The common people were almost all simple minded, illiterate, and easily-manipulated by myths. They believed by faith whatever they were told to believe (by others in power who had their own selfish agenda).

    Greek story tellers traveled across the country inspiring the rich and the poor. They recited tens of thousands of lines of unwritten poetry from memory for people who would pay their fee. To be more effective at their tall tale trade, over time the stories were embellished to include miraculous myths about many virgin births and heroic battles of titans.

    In the oral tradition of the day, Achilles was the most-handsome Greek hero of the Trojan War. Achilles was the son of the nymph Thetis and Peleus, the king of the Myrmidons. The powerful Greek gods Zeus and Poseidon were said to have been rivals for the hand of Thetis (until Prometheus, the fire-bringer, warned Zeus of a prophecy that Thetis would bear a son greater than his father).

    Achilles was given the choice between a long life, or a short one as a glorious battlefield warrior. He chose glory and was killed by an arrow in his vulnerable heel. Although Achilles was clearly an exaggerated myth, his tall tale became the role model of many Greek warriors, and the very-real brutal Alexander the Great.

    The ancient Greek oral traditions were passed down for hundreds of years until they were written in the Greek language by historian / scribes when formal education was provided to democratic society students.
