McCorporatism


McCorporatism

One of the historically significant displays of Corporatism in U. S. history is in the fast food industry. Most notably, McDonald’s Elitist view of the consumer comes to the surface. Corporatism is where you find it. I’ve found it, right here in Johnstown, Colorado.

The McDonald’s franchise here in Johnstown is “owned” by a man named Gary, last name isn’t important. He “owns” 8 McDonalds franchise locations, in the same circumstance that “proprietors” in the Northeast “owned” Exxon stations, in 1980. They found that they could be bought, sold, traded, fleeced and butchered, along with the public. At one point, in the station I worked in, the wholesale price on the invoice was a penny/gallon more than the retail price displayed across the street, at the Sunoco station. Everyone got pillaged by a corporate predator.

The present story is interesting because it comes out of so many unknowns. The greatest advantage in life is to be underestimated. I do “underestimated”, very well. Appearances would never suggest that I’ve been a photographic speed reader, capable of reading multiple books at the same time, for 52 years. Gary couldn’t possibly know that I read all of the McDonald’s training manuals, 31 years ago. That was at a time when McDonald’s was searching for methods to speed up the turnover rate on their seating capacity. One method was to maintain the thermostat settings in cold seasons and climates at an uncomfortably low level, encouraging people to consume their purchase as quickly as possible, and leave. Of course, that resulted in one of the great consumer backlashes of the ’70s.

Today, Gary continues that marketing philosophy. By his own statement, he tolerates customers in his McFeedlot for a maximum of 20 minutes, and only if they bring him money. The comical point is, that it isn’t money. It’s borrowed debt. Perhaps he believes that he’s playing the debt game, really well. He’ll find out. Those who do not learn the lessons of history, are doomed to repeat them. Inflation will change the financial landscape. People won’t be inclined to go through the processing plant that is McDonald’s when the meals on the menu start at “$?”12 and change. Gary forgets that he can’t schedule the customers. He can’t fire them for not performing up to his expectations. He also can’t judge people by appearance.

20 September A.D. 2011

Thanks for the follow up on the discussion about whether a Notary is a “state official” or not.  On the page provided, we find this rather plain and confessional discussion:

Introduction

A Notary Public is a public servant with statewide jurisdiction who is authorized to take acknowledgments, protest instruments permitted by law to be protested (primarily negotiable instruments and bills and notes), administer oaths, take depositions, and certify copies of documents not recordable in the public records.

A Notary Public is, in the true sense of the word, “a public servant” and “an officer of the State of Texas”, conveniently located in the community so that the notary may be of service to the public. Each Notary Public takes an official oath of office to faithfully perform the duties of the office, and to insure such performance, a notary public is required to post a $10,000.00 bond with the Secretary of State.

The primary duty of a Notary Public is to show that a disinterested party (the Notary Public) has duly notified the signer of an instrument as to the importance of such document, and the signer of such document has declared that the signer’s identity, signature, and reasons for signing such instrument are genuine. The signature and seal of a Notary Public do not prove these facts conclusively, but provide prima facie proof of them, and allow persons in trade and commerce to rely upon the truth and veracity of the Notary Public as a third party who has no personal interest in the transaction.

A Notary Public is personally liable for negligence or fraud in the performance of the duties of the office. The bond is to insure that the person injured can recover at least $10,000.00, but this does not protect the Notary Public from personal liability for the full extent of damages caused by a breach of official duty. In addition to civil liability, Notaries Public may be subject to criminal prosecution and the revocation or suspension of their notary public commission by the Secretary of State’s office.

Fwd: California Disinvestment Accelerates — voting with one’s feet


     This is another great item from Harmon Taylor. The same activity has been going on in New York State for at least a decade. According to the 2010 Census, both New York City and New York State have lost 1 million in population, the central issue being taxes. States and municipalities can’t hold people prisoner and squeeze them dry.

7 July A.D. 2011
It works a little bit.  One CAN reduce the insane level of control and “taxation” to a less insane level by geographically relocating.  However, one can terminate that control completely by only one method — terminating the “gotcha agreements.”
One need not relocate to terminate “gotcha agreements” right where one finds himself/herself at the moment one is reading this note.
To relocate is to “vote.”  It’s in the nature of a “veto,” but it is a “vote.”  In this sense, we vote with every commercial transaction we engage.

Oath of Office, Broken Wind


Oath of Office, Broken Wind

     The definition of an Oath of Office must be understood in the context of valid agreement. People are mesmerized by pomp and circumstance and do not question or examine the proper context. Such an oath is a public display of commitment to serve in a specified capacity. Over time, the duties incurred have been changed by who the individual has sworn to serve. The legal definitions of words have been multiplied, changed and misrepresented to protect the guilty.

People talk about change as a good thing. Real change in America began with a war of conquest and the Reconstruction Acts, the “New Deal” of it’s day. The Federal corporation, originally formed and commissioned to be confined to specific commercial administration activities has intruded into everyday life by monetizing people and commercializing all activity. This process has denied free people their humanity and failed in it’s commission as a guardian of independence and liberty. We are now ruled by the priorities of a private commercial agenda. No longer do we have the luxury of just weights and measures, equal protection under the law, and due process. As it has been said, some are more equal than others. The highest proprietary interest is now served. In the present corporate structure, an oligarchy owns the population. all commercial disputes are judged in favor of the management structure. In that context, an Oath of Office is now a commitment to serve the corporate structure in it’s management of legal trusts. People are now legal fictions. They are property.

Having been deprived of the right to own property, people are now subject to the revenue collection process. Not only are they vulnerable to loss of freedom and possessions, they must support and participate in a system that makes all property a collective asset. U. S. citizens now rely on a corporation to rob themselves and their neighbors in order to provide their needs. They are at the mercy of predators because they themselves are predators.

This may seem redundant. The point must be made and understood. Public officials have no loyalty to you, as an individual. You are a revenue source. When the Federal Reserve balances the books, you are in the accounts receivable column. Before their is nothing left of you, this fact should give pause for thought. We have enabled agents and legal mechanisms to accomplish the task of disposing of us and our wealth. Those agents have sworn an oath to accomplish that task, for the corporation. You are being liquidated. The currency is a tool used to separate you from property. There is no recovery for you as an individual. Hasn’t anyone noticed that we are being changed into a population of financial Dust Bowl people?

Hasn’t anyone noticed that continuous inventory is being taken of them? The effort to track every purchase and possession is relentless. A plague of surveillance cameras watch activity with unblinking eyes. The point will be reached when it will be impossible to have or do anything that is not recorded. At that point, an Oath of Office will be no more valid than the term, representation. The corporate structure uses the word representation, when it means to claim management authority. The departure from the most basic legal protections that we have relied on now make social processes an exercises in conquest. Do we question why we should be pitted against our neighbors in a commercial war? Do we question the premise that our well-being depends on conquest of others?

On a flow chart, the flow of wealth is exactly the opposite of what people believe it is. But again, appearances are deceiving. Everything in the financial news is the opposite of what people believe it to be.


Sink, Swim Or Learn To Dance On Water


Sink, Swim Or Learn To Dance On Water

     In the course of public discourse, every current event comes back to the basic question:
“To what purpose?”.
    It is the basic human need for meaning and validity in life that brings us to a personal accounting. Our purpose lies beyond our own lifetime and our duty comes from long before it.
     When we take inventory of our assets in the world, do we ever consider who or what we have given ourselves to? Loyalty is a fine trait to exhibit. Misplaced loyalty makes an individual expended ordnance in ideological wars. The process is always the same. There will always be those who believe that the world will be a better place, after your wealth is redistributed and your labor is reassigned. Since we have conclusive proof that no man can be trusted to represent the interests of another, our only choice is to represent ourselves. Whatever dreams U. S. citizens hold, they can forget them. They stand in line, waiting for “their” dole from the public treasury. We have so declined as a society that we are now dependent on distant commercial interests for our livelihoods, income and stability. The question that I began asking, 40 years ago is still relevant.
     “Have you considered how much better off you would be, if the Federal government never got it’s hands on your money, in the first place?”
     In fact, subsequent questions on the subject challenge us to recover the independence and American backbone that previous generations lost. The oppression inflicted on us today originally brought us to an understanding of the founding principles of the United States of America. In the history of this country, we were crippled by private banks, bringing us under the slavery of corporatism. With every opportunity of crisis, people were shoved off the land,and herded into holding pens, called cities. It was an evil trap that was sprung. The temptation to leave the honorable activity of producing our needs from the land that God gave us, with our own hands and labor, in favor of the commercial marketplace, left us at the mercy of commercial predators in the Federal Reserve system. Their willing accomplices in Washington, D. C. have been very well compensated for their betrayal of the public trust. Yet, the nation continues to support this duplicitous and and treacherous enterprise in moral, legal and financial terms. This meek surrender to the consolidation of power in the operational structure of Corporatism, within the ideological environment of Globalism, is changing this nation beyond recognition. In the immediate future, a legislature obsessed with controlling more revenue will fall in line with changing the law of the land into rulings of “an extra-legal experience”. The recently expressed objective for the next Supreme Court justice should be warning enough. The Supreme Court has already based previous decisions on International law. The claim that this has been a nation of the People, by the People and for the People has been a lie for a very long time. First, it is very difficult to find any People.
     In 1873, the Supreme Court ruled that, presumably there were no People, in the legal definition sense of the word. Now, most citizens are “human resources”, in the inventory of the Federal “government”. I quote the word because only a legitimate government has legitimate authority. This bastard corporation, in rebellion against the Constitution of the United States of America, has committed acts of war against the free People of this nation. In 1867, in the Preamble to the Congressional Record, Congress claimed conquest over the States. That is an act of war. The organization we are threatened by now, hindered only by the consequences of it’s own fraud and theft, depends on “New Deals” and “Contracts With America” to sweep it’s transgressions under the rug. In the commercial exchanges of the recent past, we have had Czars that no one voted for, formulating, implementing and enforcing public policy. We are accustomed to comfort and license in the context of an Eastern European mentality.
     There are no toll-free numbers in Hell. Paper burns. Reality brings fantasy to judgment. All we truly possess is the life that God created and the conscience to remind and motivate us to do right. I suggest that we listen closely, and learn.

It is fascinating to watch the public relations campaign waged by the Federal Reserve. Do not be deceived. This is an economic war. In September of 2007, I said that the bailout plan would not work, because there is no substance in it. There has never been a “new” bailout plan. This is the same plan that has collapsed every paper economy in history. I can only repeat myself, here. People will not believe the truth of history until someone they trust, takes everything they have, leaving them homeless beggars on the street.
It is evidence of Federal Reserve marketing skills that people left the keys on the kitchen counter, walked out for the last time, and blamed themselves for their financial demise, in the mortgage collapse. Granted, poor financial decisions produce bad financial consequences. The only guilt those people have is in believing lies they received from presumably trustworthy people. That’s a common trait in human nature, to believe lies that feel better than the truth. Falling victim to the best executed scam since the toilet paper shortage caught people shortsighted and naive. We have to question whether we have any sound judgment with which to defend ourselves.

Taking stock of our circumstances is not encouraging. We have degenerated into a nation of little, warring factions, all struggling for dominance within the corporate structure. It is what Michael Corbin of “A Closer Look” called “the Balkanization of America”. The social structure is now the domain of countless Third World style warlords in the streets. Speeches from the clowns in the Big Top that is Washington, D. C., won’t change any condition in the real world. People who have no experience in producing anything with their own hands are not qualified to speak about the real economy. For one thing, there has been no “real economy” in the history of the Federal Reserve. the closest facsimile was parity pricing in agriculture. Of course, that got in the way of the Federal Reserve debt game. The history of the war against landowner rights and the family farm is a blueprint for the slavery that is coming to the cities. The noose is tightening. The demographics have become increasingly urban, since the Great Depression. We have gone past the point of more people working in government, than not. All economic activity is being brought into dependency on direct regulation or subjugation by subsidy. The chilling fact is that more people demand such conditions, than resist them.

What are our options? The dangers of Corporatism are clearly stated and published, common knowledge in public conversation. Everyone is expendable and disposable. Job performance is no longer a measure of security. No aspect of the commercial infrastructure is safe. We have seen production and distribution systems tested by contamination and disease threats. The most basic option available to us is in the local relationships that we have and can build on. The need for locally produced supplies is obvious. It would be a return to the days before national chain supermarkets and uncertain supplies.

I would be more encouraged by local community decisions if local governments were not so hooked on the Federal handout. The addiction of the general populace to the Federal Reserve paper cocaine makes this so. Until we break this death spiral of dependency and emergency measures, life will continue to become more insecure and restrictive. The examples of emergency actions and civil strife should never even be considered an option, here in the United States.

We really should consider the protections inherent in our local relationships. The horror stories of past economic collapses in other countries should never be part of our experience. Our neighbors are worth every bit as much as we are. This is why we study history and strive to educate. We must remember what an American is supposed to be. Our Founders would have run the flag-waving Corporatists out of town, in disgrace. Such Socialist people did exist, in the Founding Era. Wholly dependent on the Bank of England, compromised by commercial relationships with foreign interests, they took comfort and profit, unjustly extorted from the people who built a society on a raw continent. Those that sided with the corporate management, fled for their lives. We have a more effective method. Stop transacting with the Federal Reserve.

Neighbors are more trustworthy than bureaucrats. They certainly are less likely to be compromised by central banks, if their needs are met locally and personally. Neighbors have more interests in common. We know that the Federal Reserve was never our friend.


Fiat Addiction


In seeking to understand public behavior of people in political interaction in the United States, we must understand the influence of addiction. In this case it is the addiction to the Federal Reseve Note. In all financial news stories, we should replace the words “money”, “dollars” and “funds” with the word, “cocaine”. We would then have a much better understanding of the influences in public policy. The sad fact of life is that people vote for the candidate that promises them the most candy. Silly children.

                                                      “Fiat Addiction” 

It is a most perplexing observation that most people seem to want to be imposed upon by force. When people are overrun by military action, the motivations are understandable. Living to live another day is a victory, in itself. It is when they have other options available, and still choose tyranny, that are puzzling. With the motives and objectives of private banking cartels clearly stated in history, it is difficult to understand why people would choose to participate in injurious activity. The affinity for fiat currency is a debilitating addiction. The process begins somewhere before coercive influence gets a foothold. Even without external pressure, people jump into bad choices before fiat currency dominates an economy. That, and the way that nations succumb to totalitarian impositions betrays a basic flaw in human nature. Whether that flaw arises out of fatigue or complacency, there is no clear pattern, but the text shows one clear pattern. People can tolerate slavery for only a short period of time. At some point, something gives way in the human heart and a turn away from government edict occurs, and the public motivation focuses on self-determination.

The fact remains that otherwise independent and functional people remain in compliance with the organizations and commercial activities that severely restrict their independence. Whether it be peer pressure or the promise of financial gain, the result is the same. The of private financial agendas in managing public money produce war and poverty. The repeated pattern is described by eyewitness accounts detail this process as a madness that quietly overtakes people and carries them into a world that the private banks dominate. The results of the events produce feelings of loss, resignation and helplessness. The common thread th is the disturbing fact is that the further a nation gets away from honest weights and measures, the further the nation strays into fiat currency and and it’s revenue collecting ideas, the stronger the addiction to fiat currency. Eventually we see the result of this dark activity. The defense of illegitimate authority becomes pernicious and threatening to the structure of society.

At what point does a people disconnect from their history and embrace the same institutional mechanism that they emigrated away from? I ask this question, in this form, because if any nation knew better, it was America. Not only do we have experience with the only form of government that recognized our Creator as the source of our rights, and the liberty to assert those rights, we also had experience with the fiat currencies of the colonies. The colonial experience was a financial disaster. The evidence is in the strong motivation that produced the prohibition against the States making anything but gold and silver coin, lawful tender. The fact that the Federal corporation claimed the power that the States never had, and couldn’t grant, is the height of willful rebellion. At that point, the Federal corporation was in default and continued in insurrection, culminating in the corporate violent overthrow of the legitimate government that represented the people. So much for the oath of office.


The history of private banks in America is a shameful history of Federal dereliction of duty. If we are to restore honest, legitimate government, we must also restore real, honest money. To fail to pursue that end is to accept the government we have as our just punishment. As long as people insist on being. S. citizens and enjoy the “benefits” of using Federal Reserve notes, they should stop complaining and just pay their taxes. Apparently, they are comfortable with the way their chains rest upon them.

I read “The Coming Battle” in December of 2008. It’s a very telling, detailed account of events leading up to the Federal Reserve Act.
