These days, we have so many influences bringing out glaring contrasts between Bureaucracy and Humanity. The hot spot today is the Federal Budget debate. This is nothing new. We’ve been watching people threaten each other with poverty since forever. It is during these bouts of confusing numbers and inflammatory ultimatums that we are reminded that turning on floodlights in a crowded bar, at midnight, can expose a lot of surprises.
It is in the contrasts, brought out it all their naked glory, that we see the behavior that causes us to cringe at admitting that we are associated with any of this mockery of all things American. Yet, we need this. We need to understand that Bureaucracy is anti-human. It is cannibalistic. Even in it’s most commercial context, it is impossible to find any compassion or grace for the behavior of Bureaucracy. Something happens to people when they gain auspicious titles and put on a suit and tie. In reality, they are no less human. They just act as predatory animals.
There is one thing that we can be sure of. Those who gain by this unreasonable facsimile of a reality show called government will not be found in line when the inevitable next step down in the currency collapse is taken. None will admit complicity in the Ponzi scheme that is the Federal Reserve. There won’t be a deal good enough to persuade the world to buy U. S. Treasury debt. The situation will become institutional looting and piracy.
This is the point when the masks come off and the wolves devour the sheep. The turmoil and protest in other countries will be seen in the United States. Bureaucracy believes that it is a law unto itself. The human common sense response would be to admit that there is a higher court than any institution of Man. But then, Bureaucracy ate of the forbidden fruit and bought into the original lie, long ago. No, the men of renown have not become gods, and their pride is going before destruction.
FEDERAL CATTLE CAR
If you ask people, “Are you gullible?”, the automatic answer is, “No, I don’t think so.”. Given enough economic and social pressure, people do agree to the strangest things. Once a generation agrees to be a sub – contractor for an invading private agenda, rather than keeping independence and free will, it’s all downhill for subsequent generations. That is the history of what was once America. That independence and creative resilience is gone. Each generation in the progress of Reconstruction is loaded on the Federal cattle car. Offer people prosperity. Offer them power and influence within the corporate structure. Tell them “It’s for the children”. Tell them anything. Bring them tales of corporate conquest and parade military heroes in front of them. For generations, people have called corporate tyranny a good thing. They just follow orders, believing that leaders do right in the world. They profit from trafficking in people and body parts, thinking they are serving the greater good. Where is the conscience that quietly and persistently reminds us that our economy grows on the people that have been plowed under as corporate fertilizer?
Barbed wire, overt human harvesting, internment and labor camps, the visual trappings of government gone bad, are bad public relations. Today, Americorps and the Peace Corps have replaced the Hitler Youth. yes, they will be trained to be good little Corporatists. Conquest in the name of Public Service is now the accepted definition of Humanitarianism. That is the way that Fascism presents itself, as the benefactor of humanity. the promise of a glorious future always ends in smoking ruins and piles of dead bodies. It is that dark side of human nature, that lust for power, hard at work seeking dominance over other human beings. We see it in the efforts to create “constituencies” and in “development projects”. A constituent is legal property. In these efforts, nations are drawn into web of debt and corporate subjugation. Billions of people suffer, while corporations manage the wealth they stole from them. That is why some of the wealthiest people in the world gave it all away, before they died. They wanted to get the guilt of all of that dirty money washed from their hands, before they died. Late may be better than never, but that doesn’t restore the lives that were destroyed. There will be a just accounting for the lives sacrificed for the gain of Corporatism.
Retirement: Nest Egg or Lead Balloon?
Are we seeing a repeat of the early ’80s? Pension funds are underfunded by disastrous margins. Government employees lead the pack going to the bread line at the soup kitchen. There is a novel thought, unionized government employees up in arms, confronted by well-armed government employees. By appearances, all parties involved are trying to sneak out of town, cheaply. The numbers in the report are but a small fraction of the shortfall. Is this an incident or a pattern? It’s been almost 30 years since we saw a run of pensioners left high and dry. In some cases, re-negotiations left pension benefits at next to nothing.
We have not seen the last of the economic collapse. This development could become a self – feeding decline in economic activity. Whether retail sales or domestic production, every aspect of financial activity suffers when discretionary income is reduced. The fact that this area of income is almost completely eliminated in these fund collapses threatens more business failures and defaults. Any number of things could trigger the next slide down the depression slope. The speculation in September was that the Dow could slide to 3,000. Today’s level is where it is, because it is inflated with U. S. Treasury debt. Remember the words of Warren Buffett. He said that U. S. Treasury debt would be seen as a historically significant financial landmark, that it could be as significant as the Internet and housing bubbles. Clearly, every seat is booked on that train wreck.
If I had never seen anything like this, There would be some room for benefit of the doubt. After seeing 30 year employees ending up with no pension at all, I have no trust lost at all for corporate management, labor unions or pension fund managers. Don’t let those people out of your sight. If they have any of your money, it may already be too late. You just don’t forget that lost look on the faces of people who are stuck and with no recourse left to them. Spending time waiting for good news from an attorney is a miserable experience. It would have been better to make the people in a position of trust miserable, before the trouble happened. Yet, people get in the same trouble, over and over, again.
Buying The Farm
People who wouldn’t buy a bridge sight unseen, accept the Federal Reserve note as the real thing. People must not know anything about the dual currency bait-and-switch. The scam works as well today as it has in every other bank panic, including the Great Depression. The Federal Reserve system is the real Bridge to Nowhere. It starts in debt, can’t prove what it is or show tangible collateral by independent audit, and can disappear into thin air, only to reappear under a different disguise. When it shows up with the Amero, people will seriously believe that it’s a new currency. The new kid on the block will turn out to be the same old whore. Yet, that corrupt system has the power to tell people what they are and what their obligations are. If people knew what they were supposed to be, where they really were, and what legal standing they don’t have now, they would get away from the Federal Reserve, as fast as they could go.
They would abandon the fake government, fake citizenship and fake money. The fake voting and fake representation would become things of the past. A government that no one voted for wouldn’t last long. A government that has no one but it’s welfare program constituents left to tax wouldn’t even last that long. The problem is that the corporation in Washington, D. C. has a thing for conquest. Reconstruction doesn’t seem to be working as well in Iraq as it did in the Confederate States. When Iraq refused to recognize the Federal Reserve note as the reserve currency, their currency got painted with red spray paint and a new carpetbagger government installed. Reconstruction rides, again.
It took 2 world wars for Corporatism to conquer the United States, Europe and Asia. A series of debt wars are bringing Africa and Latin America into the fold. The evidence is in the division of the world according to financial standing, not National borders. There are no sovereign nations. Their creditors own them. Finding the right candidate for office in the Homeland Security internment camp won’t correct this problem. When people agree to be less than they really are, they give up more than they could afford to lose. Understanding the difference between Americanism and Corporatism is prerequisite to staying out of the Federal Reserve “who’s on first” loop conversation. When the Fed tells it, it isn’t funny, anymore.
The people running the scam know the difference between real money and paper. They knew it in 1929, and worked the bait-and-switch to perfection. we are now seeing a growing reluctance to part with gold and silver, for paper. Believe it or forget it, there is no good reason to give up real money for paper. Granted, people still insist on paper in consumer transactions. Get the paper some other way. Give them strings of beads from Mardi Gras, if you have to. Keep your gold and silver. Don’t get caught in the bait-and-switch.
Why is this important? It is important because 200 years of fast-talking con artists have taken America back to square one, for at least the seventh time. This time, the panic could be the killer. Prior to this economic collapse, there was gold and silver coin in general circulation. The next time that Federal Reserve debt is offered as legal tender, could be the last. If the Fed calls that paper nothing right now, everyone is flat broke, immediately. There would be nothing in the banks, to get.
Who has the better financial statement? Is it the one with room left under the limits on his credit cards, or the one who bought some of that fine bottom land in the Everglades? Ben Bernanke and his buddies in a well-lighted conference room is a far more dangerous situation than the ‘gators and cottonmouths, in the dark.
