LIARS, LIARS, LIARS ALL III

LIARS, LIARS, LIARS ALL III

A WAR OF NECESSITY

Why all the dithering about what to do in Afghanistan? Can anyone in their right mind say that we can bring peace to those fighting clans, or that there is even a remote chance that we can tame those people and bring them on our side? Americans are being killed there daily, and so are the soldiers form the other nations there, and the more Afghans are being murdered at the hands of their own brethren, and for what , what point are we trying to prove still.

We have unholy alliances with the devil. I have said this before and I will say it again, Taliban's message is the same as the message of the Saudi regime, a fundamentalist Islam, then why we try to get rid of Taliban and befriend the Saudi'. If the same message if Islamic fundamentalism is coming from Saudi Arabia and being practiced in Saudi Arabia then what is wrong with it if the Taliban are preaching it also, the punishments meted out by the Taliban are the same as the punishments applied in Saudi Arabia then why the hypocrisy?

The madrassa's that we so hate and fear are supported by the Saudi money too.

Then why is this war necessary? In 2001, I told Roger Yates of the Pentagon that Osama bin Laden was in Pakistan, in 2003, I said the Colin Powell lied to the whole world in his UN briefing, again in I wrote in the Dothan Eagle that if go in to Iraq they will attack us, they will come after us and try to kill us, I also said that there was no love lost between Osama and Saddam, why have I been right and no on e in the US government and the media has even been close. Why do we need a war?

Like I wrote about general Powell, he could not tell the truth because he would have lost his chances of making any money from speeches or directorships on boards of directors of various defense contractor companies. And of course we all know that a war is always good for the economy. I have also said that most of the money we say is being spent on war is actually being spent right here in this country and creating jobs and stimulating spending, and not somewhere else, (this fact was later commented upon by the AP also).

The war supports the military job market, it is not just the army or the marines that are fighting over there, look at the military schools where the enrollment is higher, the training, the equipment purchases, the aircraft, the humvees, the helicopters, the maintenance of these, the bullets, the guns the rockets, the bombs, the contract personnel, the security, the interrogators, and on and on, all need a war to justify there jobs and to make living.

Then there the officers and the enlisted who purchase equiment for the war, provide training, and the advisers that work for the military and then go to work for the suppliers, and contractor, this is and incestuous relation ship and thrives due to the on going war.

And then you have the promotions, the awards and the ribbons, and privileges, that are only justified due to the war. When your senator or the congressman, especially in a district with military jobs comes to give a pep talk, he only tells you how much money he is bringing to the home district never mentioning that the war is a blessing in disguise for the expansion of spending,

We know, that we are not going to bring peace to the middle east, or democracy and stabilization to Afghanistan, but it all sounds so good, when you say we are doing it to defend "the homeland".

So Obama better think before he turns down the request for additional troops in Afghanistan, it is not how many more troops we send in to the harms way, it is how many jobs we will loose if he does not.

LIARS, LIARS, LIARS ALL II

As it always says at the bottom of my blog page, "LIFE IS A GAME OF CONNECT THE DOTS, IF YOU DON'T CONNECT ALL THE DOTS OR DON'T CONNECT THEM IN THE RIGHT ORDER YOU NEVER GET THE PICTURE" .

In the year 2009, and living in a "free" country. our lives are not in our control. I don't mean your personal choices, which in most cases themselves leave a lot to be desired, I mean our daily lives which are controlled by the congress, the local governments and the markets. I have written before as to how the inflation is lied about, and how the inflation is kept down by increasing unemployment. How low interest rates caused people to have to borrow hundred percent of the cost of the house they wanted to purchase, how the banks promised everyone free debit cards, and thus made the cost of goods go up by charging the stores up to four or five percent in fees that had to be covered by raising the prices.

While most Americans and Europeans thought of themselves smart and savvy, they were the first to be bamboozled by the banking scams and took the hardest hits. You may say well the others lost money too, you would be right, but we were the first ones in line.

Even today as their world is going to hell in a hand basket a wast majority of Americans and their European brothers and sisters are still watching soft porn of their choice (the so called sitcoms and reality TV) on various TV channels and on their mobile devices. But what does all that have to do with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, I will explain, keep in touch!

LIARS, LIARS, LIARS ALL


On top of this blog is my quote, "It is not the way I think you should live, not the way that I want you to live, but it is the way that I know you will live". This is a promise, and it goes with my promise to always tell you the truth.

It is my desire to know the truth that keeps me even to take a religion at face value, and to doubt "God's word". To search for logic and reason, if there is any to be found, in the words of politicians, economists and the other avatars. No wonder i feel let down and distrusting.

Back in August of 2008, I wrote that the high price of gasoline was about to become the last nail in the coffin of the US economy, http://tombstone001.blogspot.com/2008/08/who-is-paying-neal-boortz.html on the Dothan Eagle website, I was chastised by no less than forty individuals who called me every name in the book, I was right.

I warned about the economic collapse and why it was inevitable since 2001, again and again, I reorganized my own finances and got my self out of debt, totally. It was not the Obama fiscal policies that scared me, it was the Republicans and the Globalists, (the so called for the working people Democrats included), that told us this was the new paradigm and we must get used to it.

Today as the millions lose their jobs we are promised a recovery, and it will not come, never, and as the Republicans point fingers at Obama, neither party is blameless, nor is the American public. And if you think that the American people will soon rise up and demand answers, you better read what will happen and how America is ready and willing to face up to the ones who may challenge the authorities or the industrialists,

And now let me make another prediction, the stock market will tank again and real soon, losing 20 to 30 percent within a short period of time amd we will be right back where we left off last September.

WHO IS COUNTING?

10/17/2009

WHO IS COUNTING?

So the deficit will be 1.4 trillion dollars for the fiscal year, but who is counting. Soon there will be a recovery and we will all go back to partying "like it is nineteen ninety- nine" . OH YEAH!

There is no recovery coming, no I am not just being pessimistic, that is the new reality. Those who use the recovery from the great depression and the second world war are the same ones who told you yesterday, ( a few years ago) that the paradigm had changed, the some ones who told you that there will be no more recessions.

If anything I was right about the Bush stimulus, http://tombstone001.blogspot.com/2008/02/stimulating-who.html
that one did not work either, and for the reasons I had stated, and no matter the amount of money we spend now or in the future the economy will not recover as it did in the previous recessions sine most of the money we spend keeps flying overseas, the benefit of globalization that all forgot to mention.

While our factories are shutting down, even chickens are being processed in Mexico, cars are imported, and so is the steel, all that we are making is the weapons and wars and if the wars stop we will be for real up the creek.

I know, wars kill people, and they are no good, but how many times a day are we reminded that the great depression did not end until we joined the second world war, and now General McChrystal wants to increase the troop levels in Afghanistan, with the added benefits to the economy and the jobs saved in the defense industry. How can Obama say no?

AN ASSAULT ON AMERICAN MINDS II

AN ASSAULT ON AMERICAN MINDS II

Some TV shows should have warning, "viewing this show may be hazardous to your intelligence", but oh, that would be ninety percent of the fare on television today.

No doubt I am against dumbing down of America, and the current offerings on the television could not be more dangerous to the brain power of society. Actually it should be considered a bodily assault, since it obviously replaces the function of a real lobotomy thru a medium we call entertainment.

Be it "Rob and Big", "The Hills", "The Osbornes" or the "Real Housewives of -----" the low brow shows and low class participants could make you believe that there are no decent people left in the United States.

There is an old joke that some asked one as to if they will sleep with some one for a million dollars, when the person said yes, they were told that the fact that they were a prostitute was established. Apparently there is no lack of persons that are willing to make an ass of themselves on national TV for a lot less, and the economy falters further the price of personal dignity will be lowered too.

Or as it was rpresented in the last weeks Bettle Baily comic strip

AN ASSAULT ON AMERICAN MINDS

10/14/2009


AN ASSAULT ON AMERICAN MINDS

I do not believe that all media are totally mindless, but there is evidence that from time to time the media refuses to use common sense, or subverts the meaning of what is the "freedom of speech".

May be the ignorance exhibited therein is not intentional, but the resulting damage is the same. If one throws a hand grenade, whether they intended harm or not is a moot point. From time to time I have argued the point that freedom of speech was never intended to promote the banal and the base and since not all minds are equally capable of discerning between the tasteful and the tasteless, between entertainment and the brain damage, there should be some limits placed on what is said to and exposed to ALL populations. I had used the example of certain college student being killed after copying a stunt from the MTV show "Jackass".

In my book of poetry, I have poem "Beauty Queen" in which it says

"forget all
your basic instincts
what makes you human
and what makes you distinct"

Apparently we are being convinced that that becoming less than human, that giving up what we learned over the millennia about the human behavior and what makes for a viable society is no longer valid, that we can function at sub human level and still exist.

What got me going this time was the celebration of that old dope head McKenzie Phillips who was trying to sell books about her sorry life and got to be on every talk show only because she was discussing her relationship with her father who was not there to refute the assertion being made. "We love dirty laundry!".

Is it so important that we all know about about her disgusting behavior? What redeeming value did it have? What was the message being promoted?

Now what kid in America, and may be the world over( I am assuming a kid from a middle class family with access to the internet and television) the age of eight is not familiar with the Simpsons. They love the Simpsons, have Simpson dolls and Simpson t-shirts, coffee mugs, and what not. Now to bring that icon sown to size the "Playboy" is doing a nude, spread, centerfold of the iconic mom, that is as base as you can get, is nothing sacred anymore, can we not leave our kids be kids?

What is the message here? What is the purpose? Put this all in context, when we are talking about the Cougars, and the spread of Marge Simpson or as I have discussed previously the guys all suffer from their own Oedipus complex.

FREEDOM'S JUST ANOTHER WORD, PART V

FREEDOM'S JUST ANOTHER WORD, PART V

In case you have been thinking of me as paranoid then think again. Do we need a private police force now, in this country! Or was I right in my paranoia that the things were wrong here, or as Shakespeare would say "Something is rotten in the state of the United States". Was I wrong when I worried, as far back as in the April of 2008 that the United States was on the verge of fascism and may be a civil war. Was I wrong that we were turning the United States in to a police state?

http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/c2009/cbarchive_20091009.html

Where are the patriots, where are the people standing up for the constitution, we have become a society of eunuchs.

Where the defenders of the constitution? Sadly the defenders of the constitution have been hoodwinked, and co opted, we spent last eight years since 9/11, perverting and redefining the constitution in a way that those who were sworn to defend it have become the enemy and the opposition of the word.

ABOUT THE 2012 PROPHECY

10/05/2009

ABOUT THE 2012 PROPHECY

A while back I wrote, " good news is that the world will end on 20 December 2012, the bad news is that it may not.

http://tombstone001.blogspot.com/2006/07/ignorance.html

All kidding aside, are you even aware of the 2012 prophecy, or do you believe a biblical doomsday? Do you believe in the rapture or the second coming. If you do then look around you ,not a chance that you will be saved or the many that you know on a daily basis. And more importantly what you are doing to prepare for the Big Day.

I don't think we will get hit by an asteroid or a wave of radiation of the sun, it is more likely that the world changing event will be a human event, like an uprising, revolution or something of the sort, may be a take over by the one world government.

The world today is changing so fast, it is really hard to imagine what the place will look like in three years from now, and what could one do to prepare for it . But still are you even thinking about the eventuality.

To protect his family from the floods, the six hundred year old Noah built an ark to save them. What are you doing to protect your family from the corrupt society.

One may find it ironic, at least since the start of two thousand one I have maintained a continuous campaign of writing letters to the local paper, writing to the White House, to my senator, blogging and talking on the talk shows, about the up coming economic disaster about over population, about pollution and people selling themselves into slavery, some of my friends thought I was a liberal, but today even the likes of Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh saying the things I have been saying for years.

FREEDOM'S JUST ANOTHER WORD, PART FOUR

10/01/2009


FREEDOM'S JUST ANOTHER WORD, PART FOUR

"History is not just a window to the past, it also the gateway to the future"
Revolutions are a messy business, luckily during the war of independence the US did not suffer as badly because the rulers in the Great Britain were so far away. In India also the British found it easier to let go then to bring huge forces over to subdue the locals.

A revolution in a divided nation is of course a different beast. Either side is bent on destroying the other, and the voices of the middle and the peace makers are drowned out at first and then eliminated. Intellectuals are silenced so are the clergy and those who seek a compromise and a middle ground. Or as in the words of George W. Bush, " either you are with us or you are against us", those seeking a middle ground need not apply.

After the civil war in Rwanda some DJs were tried for crimes against humanity, inciting racial hatred and dehumanizing the opposition, today our political commentators are doing the same.
