Nationalizing Banks is OK? Are the Republicans Insane?

Yesterday, Feb. 17, 2009, The Republican party finally pulled the trigger and put the party out of its misery. In the Financial Times article: Bank nationalisation gains ground with Republicans, is the following:

“Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator for South Carolina, says that many of his colleagues, including John McCain, the defeated presidential candidate, agree with his view that nationalization of some banks should be ‘on the table’.”

Mr. Graham, a long time supposed conservative, has proven that it takes guts in these time to do what’s right, and he doesn’t have them. Nor do any of the yellow-bellies like John McCain, if what Graham says is true.

First “they (the Feds)” take over the Banks or at least a large part of them to get their foot in the door, of course taking over the remainder later. This isn’t the first time something like this happened. By the mid-nineties every bank in the country had been forced to join the Federal Reserve System, which is a private company run by the bankers. Now the whole system will be taken over.

If the car companies aren’t nationalized they will be regulated by the government. That is fascism.

Maxine Waters clearly already stated that the oil companies are in line for a takeover.

They have all but done it to education. Those of us who home school, especially in California, know the handwriting is on the wall. If your child is going to be indoctrinated (educated), it will be in the Public School System by Card Carrying Union Teachers, not by caring, loving parents at home.

As we have seen in this “stimulus”, they have their eyes on the health system. As always the end result will be a more expensive, inept, and sluggish system as is with all of government work. Or, it will erode it and be a shadow of itself. Either way, we lose big time.

In the late seventies when I first started studying all of this and developing my concepts and ideology, it was clear to me that the United States, a representative republic, was doomed. I thought it would occur in the 1990’s. But for Ronald Reagan, Newt Gingrich, and Bill Clinton, it probably would have. Reagan’s policies delayed it and Clinton’s lack of ambition did likewise. Gingrich’s years from 1994 to 1998 held promise but ended all too quickly when he was downed by his enemies. Clinton was much more moderate than most people understood, he just wanted to be in the “show”. If it had been Hiliary…?

Our country is at a crossroads and we may not survive. We are in an empty dump truck careening down a mountain to inevitable disaster. What that is, I don’t know. Some things are certain and I’ll write about them soon.

The liberal media freely expounds on the fact we are now Democratic Socialists (like Europe, FGS) as if it is a badge of honor. Why shouldn’t they? They were complicit in the whole matter. What they leave out are the fascistic overtones of private business with government control. I wonder how they will feel when the Feds take over the media.

I have to be blunt here, because with the announcement yesterday that Congress not only wants to regulate what is said in television and radio, they want to censure the internet.

Enjoy it while you can buckos. Your free wheeling criticisms will be a thing of the past.

Be prepared physically, mentally, and spiritually,

The Right to Privacy, Is It Passé?

"The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.
Dante Alighieri"

If everything continues as it is, it may disappear altogether.

We fought the Revolutionary War for four main reasons: 1. The Right for Representation, 2) the Billeting of English Soldiers in private homes, 3) Warrant-less Searches and 4) the Right of Privacy including group meetings.

Over the years this Right been tested in many ways; however, even the liberals admitted it existed when they used it to decide in favor of abortion in Roe vs. Wade.

When the Moderates (buzzword for Liberals) took over the Republican Party, the Congress and the Senate in 1998 leading to the Democrats taking over in numbers in the early 90’s, it was only a matter of time.

In post 9-11, the Patriot Act became the largest ball shot out of the cannon aimed to destroy this right to that date. It included: Warrantless Wiretaps, No-Knock Searches, coercion of libraries, video stores, etc. for background info, coercion of telephone and internet companies for records, and much more. All of these activities would be legal if the warrants were considered by and signed by a judge, but that is no longer necessary. There are many other problems with the Patriot Act, but they go beyond the Right to Privacy.

Now another attack has begun. In the current $790 “Stimulus” package, there are a lot of hidden agendas, one of which further erodes the Right to Privacy.

Under the auspices of “Health Care Reform” monies have been allocated for the following:

1. The creation of a Health Czar to operate and regulate health care.
2. The creation of a committee for approval of drugs and technology for health care. They will determine what measures you doctor can take (if you are covered by a government program such as Medicare or Medicaid) to save your life. For all intents they have the power over life and death.
3. There are several billions of dollars allocated to help doctors digitize all of our medical records and put them into a central data bank, so anyone can access it. Of course they say anyone in the medical field, but you and I both know there is no security, especially when protected or operated by the government.

A central health data bank already exists in New England that is controlled by the insurance companies; however, up to this time, it has never been compromised or used in a negative approach. I certainly do not approve of it myself, but since it is in private hands we have a degree of Privacy.

The government, especially the Feds, will use anything possible to control and manipulate us. A central health data bank is a very powerful tool for that activity. AIDS and other political diseases could be used for blackmail, discrimination or worse. Further, government file security is notoriously in adequate.

The bottom line is that literally millions have shed their blood and died for this right, and we are pissing it away so fast that it makes your head spin. George Orwell was off a few years, 1984 should have been called 2009.

Wake up America,

In Search of Information and the Truth

In Search of Information and Truth

I have not written anything since the election. There are three reasons for that.

1. I had some health issues that needed correcting. I have been and still am working on that one.

2. I have been preparing as best as possible for the coming decade which may be pretty rough. I will write a lot more about that later.

3. I have been watching and listening for information on what the election and its aftermath would mean to my family and the rest of the country. Trying to get unbiased news is… quite frankly, impossible.

Network news, including ABC, NBC, and CBS is and has been useless and completely liberal for over 20 years. They turned to 30 second sound bites; fluff broadcasting that can not in any way be considered journalism. Even their hour prime time shows such as 60 Minutes and Dateline are just larger bits of biased fluff.

PBS like their brothers at NPR toke their stand years ago, though it may be possible to glean a little info from them if you listen or watch dubiously. To a lesser degree the same goes with the BBC. Channel 24 in France is fairly straight forward and pretty much sticks to the facts (that they want to cover).

The local news is not worth mentioning and will probably disappear as the broadcast networks move to the cable and close local television stations, which it appears they are planning to do in the near future.

Cable news is more in depth with the stories they want to cover and with the slant they want to show. CNN, HLN, MSNBC, CNBC, & Fox News are mostly biased and bore the hell out of you repeating the same stories over again and again until you think your poor brain will melt.

What about the print media (including magazines? They are dinosaurs that need a meteor to put them out of their misery. Here in Baltimore, the Sun is just shadow of its former itself and the headquarters of the Maryland Democratic Club. Our alternative, the Baltimore Examiner ceased publication a couple weeks ago. I quit getting the Sun except on Sunday (for the fliers) so we’ve had to find some other junk mail to line our bird cages and wrap our fish.

How about radio? There is little or no journalism on the radio. If there is a newscast, articles simply are pulled from the wire services (such as API & UPI) and read intact with no thought as to how slanted and sometimes absurd they are. The talk shows are not news as they freely admit and can not be thought of as a source of information unless you listen with an extremely jaundiced ear.

Online sources, showing extremes from left to right, are the norm, and obviously they are not news or information oriented but opinion based. You have to know something about the person writing. When I think I may have found someone that knows at least a modicum of knowledge, they usually disappoint me.

Groups such as and are all over the spectrum. I have read nothing from either of them since the election. Truthfully, I needed a rest.

I have avoided broadcast news for over 20 years. I occasionally will listen to NPR or the BBC. I get updates from France 24, even though I think most of you know what I think of the French (it is not good).

I try to watch CNN, HNL. CNBC and FNN, but it is difficult. MSNBC is totally unbearable and unfathomable. Talk radio rattles my nerves and numbs my brain.

What is the answer? I simply don’t have one other than you have to be grounded in a solid workable ideology, sort and sift as best as possible. For now and in the future, more than ever, you will have to think for yourself, and take nothing for granted. As I have always said be prepared for anything.

In fact, in regards to information with sources in politics, government, and to a certain extent science, it would be very useful to consider the exact opposite of what is stated, and most cases that will be close to the truth.

As my health improves I will attempt to discuss some ideas that I think are very important for our future and the existence of our country. You’re input as always in very welcome.

Keep calm,
