    i came across this a long time ago and recent events made me go looking for it again. If this went viral, I think that people would sit up and take notice.

    Full disclaimer: I would never advocate that anyone commit vandalism, as this is against the law, and honestly, does anyone feel the politicians in Washington would be as benevolent as the were back then?

    now adays one would have to scout out the scene of the crime to look for security cameras, a near impossible task. (wink wink)

  • The Moral Hazard of Modern Banking: How banks create and destroy money

    This is one of the best explanations I've ever seen on the workings of fractional reserve banking. And it also explains why when the defaults on sovereign debt REALLY kicks into high gear, the whole thing is going to come crumbling down. There is absolutely no way to stop it, it can at best be delayed yet a little longer. But make no mistake about it, the front wheels of this bus have already touched air, it's to late to turn her around.

    Once you really start looking at the amount of fraud and outright manipulation of the economy by the fed, the more you really realize just how totally screwed we are.

    Seems like there’s a whole lot of things sweeping in with the news cycle doesn’t it. Wonder if this could trigger a bank run on Monday.

    i just posted this on another thread:

    We just got back from the Rally, Two large vans were rented out for what started out as 16, turned out at 12 in two rental vans. Left Friday night about 6:00pm, Got into a traffic jam from hell at the metro park and ride in Washington. The lines going in were literally going around the block and up the street, and cars were parking on both sides of the street for blocks in all directions. We finally got to the Smithsonian stop were we walked out to the mall. The Martin Luther King event was right in front of us. they were broadcasting Martin Luther Kings speech from what looked like a large tapestry I;m guessing this was Mr Sharptons? not many people hanging around this area, just walking straight for the rally. Right before we went in to the entrance, (he had a banner going over the side walk,) there was a guy with a bull horn harassing every on he could saying he was ashamed that you folks are going in there, all he got back was God Bless you man, I loved it! just before we got in, we could just hear the end of Avda? King,s speech. She was the main reason I wanted to go.
    When we we got up towards the Washington monument the real crowds began. found a place where a couple of our more elderly ladys could set up there chairs and a base camp of sorts. My wife and an other great patriot lady went to see how far we could make it in. There were patchy but solid seas of people from the Washington Memorial to the World War 2 memorial. When we got to the World War II Memorial, the wall of people started. We went through the memorial, and people were standing on top of all the forward facing walls.we waided in. toward the reflecting pool. it was rough going from there still slight movement in the crowd, but very slow. porta pottys lined up the side walk behind the reflecting pool, we could see the reflecting pool, but just barely, but you could see the other side of the reflecting pool, solid mass of people, a police scissor lift at the edge looking out over the crowd, lots of police in barricaded isle going down to the pool. that slowed down traffic and made little stationary islands in places. and the jumbo trons set up at the edge of the pond. We finaly got to where we could see the stage directly, but no one was moving any further from there. got to see Glen preechin to the choir! Literally, as he got to the point of introducing the Black Robed Brigade. they all came out, came up on stage with him, 240 pastors,preachers, and Clergymen of many different faiths, as well as 2000 more in the rally, saying the one thing we can all agree on, is to seek your answers from God. Told the story of the author of amazing grace saying it was a perfect song for the bag pipes, that he was a slave ship owner who became reborn. and led the fight with the abolitionists. The Bagpipes then came in, and after marching in and joining the Brigade with amazing Grace, it broke out with singing and every one I could here around me in the crowd, you could here the echoes from behind us, just sent a chill down my spine. It was totaly moving when were returning back to the metro later that day, heard some one told him (ya ya, I know) park service was reporting 1.9 million. but I gotta tell you this, i went last 9/12, and I would have put that one at 1.5 to 1.7 million. This one was easily double last year.
    Sorry if this is rambling, but I quite literally haven’t slept for more than about 4 hours since Friday morning at 3:00 am and I am just trying to unwind with my favorite beverage. Need some sleep

    I beg to differ. My wife and I filed for Bankruptcy back in Nov of 2004, 2 months before the law changed. It has taken us until just 2 weeks ago to finally have it discharged. Our Lawyer found a precedent, and the judge agreed. Arrogant clymers kept taking money from our tax returns even after we filed.

    On choosing the Rattlesnake as a symbol for the Gadsdan Flag

    I recollected that her eye excelled in brightness,
    that of any other animal,
    and that she has no eye-lids—
    She may therefore be esteemed an emblem of vigilance.—
    She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders:
    She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage.—

    As if anxious to prevent all pretensions of quarreling with her,
    the weapons with which nature has furnished her,
    she conceals in the roof of her mouth,
    so that, to those who are unacquainted with her,
    she appears to be a most defenseless animal;
    and even when those weapons are shewn and extended for her defense,
    they appear weak and contemptible;
    but their wounds however small,
    are decisive and fatal:—

    Conscious of this,
    she never wounds till she has generously given notice,
    even to her enemy,
    and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her.—

    Was I wrong, Sir, in thinking this a strong picture of the temper and conduct of America?

    “All I know was it was people as far as the eye could see and everyone was very friendly. No garbage thrown around , people would talk to you out of the blue about whatever issue , even the porta-johns were clean, no graffiti in evidence. Overall it was very uplifting.”

    It was extremely uplifting, inspiring even. We were walking back to the mall after getting some lunch, and some fellow tea partiers in front of us and told a DC cop directing traffic “thank you sir for your service” the cop looked up at the swarm of tea party shirts behind us and said to us, “No, thank you guys”. That was an epiphany of sorts for me, it made me realize that this isn't some flash thats going away. there are many, many silent voices out there who get it and, I believe, are ready to stand with the just cause. We talked with folks who went through 2 hours of waiting through crowds at the burbs of the metro trying to get into Washington. There's nothing like getting together with a couple of million of your best friends for a little protesting!!

    I think we need to get a campaign going to get Sarah to speak at the National Tea Party in Washington. could you imagine how literally millions of patriots standing with Sarah would make the entrenched vermin loosen their bowls? the media could no longer ignore us.

    My company helped design and produce the lens sets for this application about a year ago for a korean company. the apps worked great, but it was still a little bit fragile, (couldnt survive the drop test).
    This will be interesting when someone decides to watch a little porno while riding the bus eh?

    I grew up as a Catholic in Amarillo, and the Local Bishop, Bishop Lawrence, told all the faithful in the area that if they worked at Pantex, it was their moral obligation to quit their high paying jobs at Pantex immediately, he did not care if they had to go to work at a convenience store at minimum wage, and to do so with, of course, no financial aid from the church whatsoever. From what I understand, some actually did as asked, and struggled financially for years afterward. Just another reason i felt compelled to get away from the liberal idiots posing as men of God in the Catholic denomination.
