The Bush tax cuts, Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 and Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003, are due to expire in January, 2011 which has the wealthy crying foul.  These people, who have more money than you and I will ever see, are condemning the sun setting of the tax cuts as class warfare.

There is one thing we need to get straight right off the bat.  The sun setting is not a tax increase.  It is simply the tax code reverting to what it was prior to I-Got-A-Billion-Dollars-In-My-Bank-Account-Bush enacting temporary tax cuts for himself and his elitist cohorts.  The reason he put forth at the time for the cuts was economic stimulus.  The theory being if the rich paid less in taxes, the billions they would save would be invested in expanding their businesses which would create jobs.  Where have I heard that before?

The fact is even when the filthy rich paid taxes they did not pay taxes.  I have seen, on many occasions, brand new four wheel drives, quad runners, and snow mobiles written off as farm equipment.  I have also seen Cadillacs and getaways to Caribbean Islands written off as necessary business expenses.  This is actually better than no tax, as the people who build new four wheel drives, quad runners, snow mobiles, and Cadillacs get to enjoy employment and the pay checks they receive for their labor, as do the airplane pilots, the stewardesses, and the employees at the hotel.

The filthy rich, since the tax cuts, have not spent any of the billions of which they benefitted.  They have instead, from the get go, stashed the monies.  And now that the tax cuts are about to end, they are acting like a thief is coming to rob them.  Bear in mind they get to keep all they have profited in the past nine years, and will only have to start paying the original tax again.

When Tiers 1, 2, 3, and 4 were passed, they provided minimal aid to hard working citizens who had been thrust into an impoverished situation through no fault of their own.  These people were and are facing home foreclosures, delinquent car payments, delinquent personal loan payments, and those never ending utility bills.  The monies they received went right back into the system.  And if the truth is ever told, the unemployment monies bear more responsibility than the stimulus or bailouts for any stabilizing of the economy which has occurred.

Just before our so called representatives hit the campaign trail, they passed another $30 billion banker bailout aimed at little billionaires with little banks.  As to date, I know of no one who has received any small business loan offers and the jobs board remains the same, non-existent.  Guess they just rat holed the $30 billion.

The small business owners that I know, I find walking around their empty establishments as glum as morticians mumbling, “Is it ever going to end?”  Had that $30 billion been used for a Tier 5 Unemployment Extension it would still be at work shoring up our failing economy.

When the politicians return to Washington, they need to be inundated with calls, emails, tweets, and faxes letting them know that we have had all that we are going to take.  Without making open threats, we must convey to them the fact that desperate people tend to take desperate measures, and that we’re not going to take them on ourselves anymore.  They must be made to understand that the issue of unemployment is not only pertaining to those out of work, but is day by day becoming a matter of national security which could not only effect their jobs but their well being.

Maybe then they will, as a matter of self preservation, come to the conclusion that the revenues that will be expended to finance a Tier 5 will have to be considered money well spent.

If you are among the rich, your priorities might include the purchase of the latest model of Mercedes Benz, a new fur coat, or a dingy for your yacht.  So who are these people?  Well among them you will find those who run for the offices of, and are elected as, our so called representatives.  These people are the elite.  The fact is in order to run a campaign these days; one must be individually wealthy or backed by another who is.  In the second instance, that candidate is left indebted to his or her backer.  So it should be obvious that when those elected and/or those who own the elected are putting their priorities in order, they are doing so from an elitist’s point of view.

Unfortunately for us 99ers, their number one priority is protecting their wealth and passing legislations designed to liquidate more of our property, the proceeds of which they take, so that they can become even richer.   The very idea that these elitists can even comprehend the world that the 99ers are living in is laughable.  Can you imagine one of them spending a sleepless night worrying as to how they are going to pay a utility bill?  The fact is you do not reach the higher echelons in this country unless you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth, preferably a gold one.

Our so called representative government is giving away over $40 billion per year in aid to foreign countries.  The latest numbers which could be found were from 2008, as trying to find current numbers is akin to asking a spouse who has gone on a gambling binge to help you straighten out the check book.  All you get is a big line of bull that leaves you more confused than you were before you asked.

A Tier 5 unemployment extension would cost $30 billion and could be financed with the monies being sent to citizens of 150 foreign countries around the world with $10 billion left over.  By the way, how many of you are aware that we are still giving tens of millions of dollars in foreign aid to China while they are the largest holder of U. S. debt?  Does something smell a little rotten here?

The two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to date have cost us well over $1 trillion, which would finance over 33 tiers of unemployment extensions.

The spend-happy psychos have flung out $787 billion in stimulus monies, which would have financed over 26 tiers of unemployment.

They have also given away $346 billion to banks, insurance, and car companies in bailouts, there’s enough for 11 more tiers.

That’s a total of 71 tiers of unemployment extensions.

I guess we can all see where the priorities of the ruling elite lie.  So we ask, “Do they not see our suffering?”  The answer is that the plight of the 99ers does not even enter the realm of thought among the elite, except in seeing it as a consequence of the dirty deeds they have done, of which they laugh among themselves when the cameras and tape recorders are turned off.  Until we, the 99ers, become to the elite as that utility bill is to us, they will continue to refuse to prioritize a Tier 5 extension.

The government says that unemployment is at 9.6%.  The so called experts put it at 15%.  But most of us know that the actual number is closer to 30%.  The government will admit that 13 million of our desperately needed jobs are being worked by illegals from south of the border.  They put the total number of illegals at only 15 million, when in reality it is closer to 30 million and growing exponentially, day by day.

Subsequently the issue of anchor babies has arisen again and is being discussed anew.   The theory is if any foreign national can make it into the United States and deliver a baby, that baby is automatically given citizenship.  This method has been used by many invading across our southern border to establish a toe hold (an anchor).  Their wish is that every relative of that child should also be made a citizen.

This takes us to the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.  It states, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.   No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

Many people, including myself, believe that the 14th Amendment is unconstitutional, as it was never properly ratified.  Upon the conclusion of the Civil War, President Lincoln declared that all states in secession were member states of the Union once again and that their elected representatives were recognized by the Congress.

The 14th Amendment was put forth for ratification on June 16, 1866.  It had to be ratified with a three-fourths majority vote by March 24, 1868.  It was not, as fifteen out of the thirty-seven states rejected it.  President Andrew Johnson, using the reconstruction act as his authority, sent military governors into ten formerly Confederate states who gave ratification to the amendment.  The problem is that, as I said earlier, President Lincoln had declared the former Confederate states solvent members of the Union, with elected representatives.  And as the amendment had been rejected during the dates it was open for ratification, it would have had to been re-introduced before another attempt at ratification could be made.  It was not.

The reason I denounce the 14th Amendment is that it tries to make me a subject of my government and I am not.   I am the sovereign and my government is subject to me.

The original reason given to necessitate the 14th Amendment was that it would give citizenship to the children of former slaves.  It was made clear at that time that it was only for the children of the former slaves as they were not foreign nationals.

The people streaming in from south of our border and having babies are foreign nationals and fall under international law, which says that no matter where a child is born that child is born under the nationality of his or her parents.  This law was written long ago to insure that the children of English aristocrats, living in foreign countries were born British citizens.  The illegals coming up from the south are just that, illegal, and should derive no benefit through a violation of our law.

The 14th Amendment does not give their anchor babies our rights, jobs, or access to the benefits of our safety nets.  Like a friend who has brought someone undesirable into our house, we must tell our so called representatives to get them out.  And if they don’t like it, they can go too.

President Obama, if you like the Mexican people so well, that you would put them above we the people of the United States, I suggest that you whip yourself up a new birth certificate and go down there and be their president.  We don’t need you, so round up all your little ones, take them to Mexico, and go down in history as the mack daddy of the anchor babies.

I do not know if a Tier 5 will be passed.  However, I am pretty sure that if it is, that will be it, there will be no Tier 6.  I have tried to be an optimist but the facts contained in reality are demanding that I be a realist.  I think our economic situation is going to continue to deteriorate to the point of complete collapse.

As we are not depleted of resources, an economic collapse cannot destroy us as a country or a people unless we let it.  After we have taken out the garbage and the sediment has settled, we are going to have to rebuild from the bottom up.  The work will be hard, but prosperous, and in order for each of us to participate, we will have to survive until that day.  We are going to have to start informally forming think tanks in order to acquire the survival skills needed to survive both in the country and in the city.

My dad grew up on a farm and my mom in a coal camp.  So the art of survival was taught to me from the time I was able to discern the English language.   My dad made a good living, but had five other children on the other side of the country, which he had to support on top of the seven of us here.  There is an old saying, “Many hands make light work”, and this is the strategy we used.

I live in the country so I am adept at surviving in its environment.  I have a 20 by 30 foot garden which did not produce much this year due to the frigid weather.  So by next spring I will have built a greenhouse over its entirety using lodge poles taken from the forest and plastic which I will acquire over the winter by hook or crook.

Years before my unemployment came and went; when I was working I always stashed staples like dried beans, canned goods, nails, and tools.

I have a couple of apple trees in my yard which bore no fruit this year but generally do.  If you live in a small town like I do, you will probably find apple trees everywhere.  I go to the houses where I know the owners do not harvest the apples.  These people are always quick to give their apples to anyone who will harvest them.  Needless to say, I have a lot of apples stored.  I check all yard sales for mason jars and dehydrators.  You can buy sugar and pectin with food stamps and if you make it a priority you will find that you can fill them up pretty quickly.

I also have a smoker which I built from wood that someone else was throwing away.  The hot plate I use for heat I got at a yard sale for two dollars and the racks came from an old refrigerator.  I have fishing poles which I use to harvest the fish which are abundant in the lakes and streams.   And I have guns which not only provide for my protection, but also work quite well to feed me.

These are just a few ideas to get people thinking.

If we do indeed get the Tier 5 when Congress returns, remember there’s still going to be a long, hard row to hoe.  We are going to have to survive as the housing crisis runs its course and get used to the idea of our so called representative government continuing to send money to foreign countries while we do without.

I know it may seem impossible, but through all the deprivations we must become stronger, as we are going to need every bit of our strength to reclaim our country and become prosperous once again.  If we fail, we fail not only for ourselves, but for our children and grandchildren.  So I guess it comes down to: worst case scenario, we need to know what to do to survive; best case scenario, we need to know what to do to better survive if we get the Tier 5.

It has become a virtual certainty that when the elections are over and Congress reconvenes, we will be looking at a lame duck session, which is to say that, those incumbents who have been voted out will have nothing to lose.  This being so, logic would dictate that their emphases should be turning towards President Obama’s reelection bid in 2012.

There are a lot of 99ers out there who have been putting forth the notion that Congress did not act to pass a Tier 5 Unemployment Extension because they did not want to explain on the campaign trail as to why they passed unfunded legislation.

This has not been my view, as I believe it has to be pretty obvious that when they passed the health care reform bill they pretty much sealed their fate.  I hope I am wrong.  If I am, I believe that the Tier 5 should be among one of the first matters that is brought up when Congress returns to Washington.  As I said, they have nothing to lose and everything to gain, as there are millions of us shouting for President Obama to get on down the road, who are about to be joined by millions more come the end of November if a Tier 5 is not passed.

If congress does not address the issue of a Tier 5 upon returning to Washington, it will become obvious to me that their intent all along has been to see riots in our streets, like the ones we have seen in Greece.  If this is the plan, they will not be worrying about the reelection of Obama, as they will be of the belief that they can complete the takeover of our country before the 2012 elections.

Most of us 99ers have to live without adequate resources.  Some of us are living in our cars and in the streets.  It is going to be a difficult thing to try and convince people without hope not to react as our enemies want us to.  However we must.  There are options as to how we can react to the affront that I believe we are about to face.  Rather than rioting, we must take a position of calm with organized thought.  Firstly, we must make contact with all those who will be joining our ranks at the end of November.

Secondly, we must begin educating the newly destitute in the art of survival in the 21st century.  This involves procuring food stamps, energy assistance, and learning where the best food banks are.  Those who have any land of which to work upon must be growing gardens.  Those who have firearms must keep them.  Those who do not need to acquire them.

At the beginning of World War II, we were sending a lot of armament to Europe, thus, before we could get our military industry up to speed, our own army was suffering from shortages.  Our troops, therefore, trained with model guns formed out of wood.  I think it might be interesting to see what would happen if a couple million 99ers started to form up all over the U.S. into five man fire teams of militia and began openly training in the art of guerilla warfare.

You may think this a little extreme, but come December, if they have not passed a Tier 5 you will not.  They have to know that it is not going to be riots, but rather war, if we are left without a choice.  At any rate it beats the hell out of succumbing to apathy and just lying down and dying.  Personally, they’ll have to kill me before I’ll die.

I never thought I would see it come to this.  With life and death hanging in the balance, the future of the greatest country ever to exist on this planet lies in the hands of a lame duck congress.

Fifteen days until the election and the buzz around town is all about social issues.  9.6% unemployment, the worst economy since the Great Depression, two wars, and the politicians are talking about social issues.  Well I might as well throw my two cents in.

Carl Paladino, the Republican gubernatorial candidate for New York, recently made remarks to the effect that he did not approve of gay marriage, or an open display of the gay life style in public.  Mr. Paladino was immediately chastised from every quarter.  The next day he recanted his remarks and stated emphatically that he supported gay rights without exception.  So what happened here?  I guess it doesn’t matter if you are a Nazi or a Communist so long as you do not put gays in a negative light.

In California the people passed a law against gay marriage which was quickly overturned by the federal courts.  Gay people should be thanking whatever god they pray to that they live in a country that protects individual freedoms no matter how unpopular they may be.

I’m almost afraid to say it, but if the aforementioned is the measure, I just could be a little homophobic.

Racism is another social issue which is at present getting attention.  A lady whose ancestors fought for the Confederacy is displaying Confederate battle flags in front of her private residence and is being labeled a racist.

During our last presidential election, members of the Black Panthers stopped white voters from entering polling places.  Investigation and prosecution was blocked by the very government officials responsible for investigating and prosecuting cases that involve voter intimidation.

When President Obama began to fall in popularity polls after his election and people began to speak out against him, ex-President Jimmy Carter spoke out against his detractors, labeling them as racist.

I have to wonder who is setting the standard for what is to be considered racism and exactly what that standard is.  When asked, most people define racism as prejudice, which I find hard to grasp.  I mean, I prefer my coffee with cream and sugar which would indicate a prejudice against black coffee.  I prefer a peanut butter and honey sandwich over a peanut butter and jelly sandwich which would indicate a prejudice against jelly.  If you look at it hard enough you will find that an individual’s life is littered with prejudices.

So what determines what is acceptable and what is not; perhaps political correctness?

I too own a Confederate battle flag; it hangs on the wall in my living room.  Does that make me a racist?  I don’t think my half Guamanian first cousin, my two half Hispanic nephews, or my half Native American granddaughter would say so.  The people who know me know that that flag hangs on my wall as a reminder of the tragedy it represents in reference to the lives lost on both sides and the freedoms and liberties lost by the people of this country of every race, creed, and color.

When people ask me about the abortion issue, I answer with the truth, which is, I do not have a uterus, therefore there is no way I can know the mind of the person who does.  And although I hold life to be precious, any assertion I would make would be detached and uninformed.   I leave the issue of abortion to the fairer sex.

Now to the issue of gun control; this is an easy one.  The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees the right of the people to own firearms in order to defend themselves against tyrannical government.  The fact is gun control should not even be an issue and for anyone to try to make it one is an act of treason.

The Anti-Defamation League is an organization here in America that stands ready to pounce on anyone considered to be anti-Semitic.  They have become so overbearing in our country that most people are afraid to say the word “Jew” or anything negative about the State of Israel.  However, I will.  Just before Christmas last year, President Barack Obama, signed into law one of our country’s biggest aid pledges of the year.  It was a deal for $2.77 billion to go to Israel in 2010 and a total of $30 billion over the next decade.  Sounds like a pretty sweet deal for the Israelis.

By the way, what was the price tag on that Tier 5 Unemployment Extension?  Oh yeah, $30 billion.  I guess that just goes to show where President Obama’s loyalties lie.

Well, this article should be good for causing the comments board to be flooded with people condemning me as a gun toting, homophobic, anti-Semitic, chauvinist, baby killing, racist.  But hey, these are the chances you take if you dare speak your mind on social issues.

Twenty years ago, though they were few, there were people studied in the history of world government who were warning us about  a new one world order, that they said was being crafted behind the scenes.  The fact is the assertion of a one world government goes much further back.  Rome did rule the known world, until it crumbled under its own weight.  Napoleon might have been emperor of the world had he not committed crucial errors.  The ambitions of Adolf Hitler go without saying.  And the fact that the international communists, are determined that one world communism will prevail to encompass every facet, of every society, cannot be denied.

Those people who first put forth these warnings were immediately labeled conspiracy theorists.  Today, the reality of the push for a one world government is common knowledge, as presidents and statesmen around the world have become its advocates.  So what are the conspiracy theories of today that will become the conspiracy facts of tomorrow?

A One World Currency

This issue is sparsely mentioned in the mainstream propaganda, however, if you look behind the scenes, you will find that there is a well orchestrated one world program underway designed to achieve this goal.  For the United States’ part, the foreign Federal Reserve is at present preparing to pump trillions of dollars into our economy.  Many are saying this will have the same effect on our dollar as it had on the German mark in the Weimar Republic in pre-Nazi Germany.  If you know your history, you know that the Weimar Republic experienced hyperinflation, mass unemployment, and famine which eventually led to the German population becoming so desperate for any solution that they readily accepted one of the most diabolical monsters in world history as their dictator.

Population Reduction

There are already eugenics operations being conducted in our country in the form of additives to our water which cause cancers and literally poison our minds; genetically modified foods and food additives which are also designed to implement a soft kill through disease and sterilization; and the most diabolical of all, mass immunizations which are killing our people by the scores.

A One World Slave System

When we fought our Civil War it was definitely over slavery, but not in the sense that has been taught as history in our public schools.  The fact is the majority of the people in the South owned no slaves.  These people fought to stop the outright violation of their states’ rights to peaceably succeed from the union, as they knew that if the rights of the states contained in the Constitution were unenforceable, then their individual rights would follow suit.  The Northern man worked in a factory and fought to stop the spread of slavery into the free territories, as he knew that if it was allowed, he would eventually be competing with slave labor and thus be reduced to a slave himself.  The black people were caught in the middle and were used as pawns in reference to international opinion and the North’s desire that there be no outside intervention that might assist the South.  President Abraham Lincoln was indeed the first politician to play the race card when he gave his Gettysburg address.  If you know history you know that Lincoln freed only the slaves in the states in succession, the Confederacy, a separate country that he and the union were at war with.  President Lincoln stated, “If I could end the war by ending slavery I would, if I could end the war by keeping slavery, I would.”

Today we the 99ers find ourselves in the same position as the Northern man.  As NAFTA, CAFTA, and GATT have merged our national economy into the world economy, we are looking at not only competing with slave labor in the one world states of China and North Korea, but are seeing the spread of slavery from the one world states of Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras into our own one world state, the United States.  As the spread has gone unchecked we are already finding ourselves competing with slave labor and eventually, if it is not stopped, we will be enslaved.

You can call these conspiracy theories if you like, but I assure you, that if we fail to stop and correct, they will become conspiracy facts.  I do see hope in that more and more and day by day, the behind the scenes workings of the international corporate mafia are being revealed at an increasing frequency and are becoming common knowledge.

Whenever the international corporate mafia sees that the effect the mainstream media is having on the populous is diminishing, they realize that they are losing control.  This is when you will see them bring out the boogieman.  The phenomenon of the boogieman is nothing new, as he has been used to scare the masses into compliance literally since the beginning of time.  In the days of the caveman you had the shaman to conjure up and bring forth the boogieman.  Now you have government think tanks and mass media.

One of the most notorious boogiemen of our day appeared in the form of Osama Bin Laden.  However, he did not just appear before 9/11.  In fact he had been a CIA asset for thirty years prior to 9/11.  After the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, Osama Bin Laden became a noted resister of the Soviets as an active member of Mujahideen (Holy Warrior).  The United States, in the early 80’s, sent CIA agents to arm the Mujahideen with stinger missiles and trained them in the use thereof.  In 1989 the Soviets left Afghanistan.  The withdrawal was a simple matter of economics, as a seven thousand dollar stinger missile could bring down a million dollar Soviet helicopter.  So at the end of that conflict, the United States had in Bin Laden and the Mujahideen staunch allies who were indebted to the CIA.

First term President George W. Bush was experiencing a drop in the polls prior to 9/11.  However, after the boogieman appeared in the form of Osama Bin Laden and fifteen other Saudi Nationals on 9/11, President Bush’s approval rating soared from 55% approval to 85%.  Whether you believe that 9/11 was an outright attack upon the United States by a foreign entity or a staged event, which would have required participation by those in power in our government, the effect upon the minds of the American people cannot be denied.  How easy was it for the boogieman to scare us into allowing the enactment of the Patriot Act?  Benjamin Franklin said, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserves neither liberty nor safety.”  We made the trade and those words have proven prophetic.

I have seen recently new glimpses of the boogieman, as the mainstream propagandists are reporting that Middle Eastern terrorists are inside our borders and plotting to cause us harm.  This rhetoric seems to be ratcheting up as President Obama’s approval rating is falling.  I believe that the international corporate mafia is setting the stage for another false flag attack, as the think tanks have run out of ideas as to how to bring the Republicans and Democrats back into the political fold.

What they do not seem to be realizing is that the 99ers living without the Tier 5 Unemployment Extension and the disenfranchised poor are beyond fear of the Middle Eastern, turban headed, camel riding, boogieman.  The fact is each one of us already has our own domestic boogieman to deal with; his name is Osama Been Impoverished.   He has already been responsible for many deaths among our people, including those who have committed suicide as an option to cohabitating with the monster.

We must force every politician to realize that we are not afraid of their boogieman.  We must show them that we have nothing but hate and contempt for them and him.  We cannot be lured into apathy, but must instead outwardly show our anger in every quarter.  That means that when someone tries to degrade us because of the condition that their ignorance has put us in, we must get up in their faces and let them know in no uncertain terms that we are ready to take this matter to the wall and we must laugh in their face when they try to scare us by saying, “Here comes the boogieman.”

On September 17, 1787, the Constitution of the united States of the Americas was adopted by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  The Constitution is the supreme law of this land.  Some states, during the ratification phase, refused to sign on until the Constitution was amended to contain a Bill of Rights.  The Bill of Rights originally consisted of twelve amendments.  Only ten of the amendments were made permanent to become what we know today to be our Bill of Rights.

The First Amendment states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”.

So, some 230 years later, how is the First Amendment faring?  In the area of religion, we have seen the rise of the 501(c)3 church and in the past six years we have seen the formation of the clergy response teams.  The clergy response teams are individual clergymen chosen by our government specifically for the reason of administering religion to us in times of crisis.  They have been directed to convince their flocks to follow the direction of the government during crisis without question.  Those clergymen who have denounced the clergy response teams have been harassed by the government using their 501(c)3 tax exempt status as a tool of coercion. How about freedom of speech?  The Cyber Bullying Act would make it a jailable offense to use online speech to hurt another person’s feelings.  What about the press?  Well, you do not really have to suppress that which is controlled.  How about the right of the people to peaceably assemble?  It is now become the norm for groups protesting against government representatives or actions to be forced to hold protests inside of fenced areas as far as two miles away from any politician or event they wish to protest.

The Second Amendment states, “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

It was the freeman militias from every county and state that were organized to create the Continental Army whose members fought and died to give us our freedoms and liberties.  Rather than being enshrined and honored, the freeman militia today is demonized by the government it created.  By law every adult male between the ages of 18 and 45 is automatically a member of the militia.  So by our government’s reckoning every person falling into that category is to be considered a right wing terrorist.  As to the absolute right to bear arms we have the 1938 Federal Firearms Act and the 1968 Gun Control Act.  These are two laws our fathers and grandfathers should never have allowed.  Now Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has signed onto an international small arms ban treaty that is sitting over in the Senate waiting for a dark night when no one is looking in order that four or five Senators can form a quorum and make it law.  This will result in a war between the government (who will use NORTHCOM which has been watered down with foreign troops) and the militia.  I guess our founding fathers just were not serious about this one.

The Third Amendment states, “No soldier shall in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.”

As it has become common for American soldiers to assist law enforcement in basically every aspect, in violation of not only the Third Amendment but also the Posse Comitatus Act, I guess we can scratch the Third Amendment off the list.

The Fourth Amendment states, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

This is nullified by the Patriot Act.

The Fifth Amendment states, “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

This is nullified by the Patriot Act.

The Sixth Amendment states, “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to  have the assistance of counsel for his defense.”

This is nullified by the Patriot Act.

The Seventh Amendment states, “In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.”

This amendment is made null and void by the capture of our courts by the corporations.  Our courts no longer operate under a system of Common Law, as it has been replaced by Roman Civil Law, which is met out through a jurisdiction of admiralty, which, under our Constitution, was only supposed to affect international commerce and military personnel, as in a court martial.

The Eighth Amendment states, “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”

I guess the matter of excessive bail would depend on the size of one’s bank account, though I know that in most instances the poor sit in jail awaiting trial.  As for cruel and unusual punishments, well I think enhanced interrogation (torture) would be considered by most of us to be just a tidbit cruel and unusual.

The Ninth Amendment states, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

The Commerce Clause is being used more and more to violate every right of the people.

The Tenth Amendment states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, or to the people.”

Again, the federal government is claiming total power over the states and the people citing the Commerce Clause.

People, considering the obvious dismantling of our Bill of Rights, we must face the reality of the dire straits we are facing.  President Obama promised to repeal the Patriot Act if he was elected.  He not only did not repeal it, but took measures to strengthen its power over us.  This one act should be enough for any American to identify him as the diabolical threat he is.  He stated when running for president, that he was well studied in our Constitution, therefore reason and logic dictates that he is deliberately, with malice and forethought, doing everything in his power to complete the destruction of our most sacred law.  If we as a people ever wish to be free again, we have no choice other than to stand up and, if necessary, sacrifice our lives to reinstate the Constitution as the supreme law of our land.

The next time one of you dimwitted democrats are standing in a crowd shouting, “Yes we can”, please take just a moment to ask the question, “Yes we can, what?”  The last time you shouted, “Yes we can” in unison with Obama, he was elected president.  In the two years that have passed since then, the majority of you have had to admit that he lied to you, and yet , here you are again, back in line yelling, “Yes we can” and preparing to vote away more of my rights.

I tell each and every one of you, Republicrats and Demopublicans alike, that one day soon you are going to have to answer up to your fellow citizens whom you have betrayed with your ignorance and stupidity.  God bless the Republic.

New jobless claims rose 13,000 this week to 462,000, the highest level recorded in months.  Home foreclosures have also risen to their highest level in months.  I knew things would get better when the recession ended.

All fifty states’ attorney generals are launching investigations in reference to allegations that the banksters have been carrying out illegal home repossessions as they do not have the original loan documents.  The reason they do not have the original loan documents is that in carrying out The Great Housing Pyramid Scheme, the mortgages were put into packages and sold all over the world and in short, they cannot be found.  The states are justly calling for a freeze on all foreclosures.

It is disturbing to see the mainstream propaganda machine, rather than zeroing in on the criminals who perpetrated this scheme, coming out in unison, left and right alike, purporting the assertion that the banksters who violated the law in packaging and selling the mortgages, should be accommodated in some way that would allow them to continue the illegal foreclosures. The only way they can continue the foreclosures short of finding and producing the paperwork is to allow them to continue breaking the law.   The media is trying to get us to believe that the further violations of the law must be allowed as the banksters’ repossessions of the properties has to occur, because if they do not it will cause further damage to our economy.  This is starting to become like a broken record.  Every time the mobsters want to commit another outrage upon us, we are told we must allow it in order to save our great economy.    I say, “Bull feces.”

The media is concentrating their combined efforts in a campaign to demonize the people that are being foreclosed upon who are demanding that the proper paperwork be brought forth before the foreclosures occurs.

Now I guess you could look at this a couple of ways.  Number one, the people being foreclosed upon get to stay in their houses without paying their mortgages.  This would seem very wrong unless you look at it from the other angle, which is the banks packaging of the loans and selling them to other banksters around the world in order to leverage the equity the real property represents.

When the loans were made the equity of the property had ten dollars of lending power for every dollar of true value.  Each time the loans were repackaged and resold the leveraging was compounded; ten becomes one hundred, becomes one thousand.  So more than the worth of the property in reference to the original loans was acquired by the banks through the leveraging, but a pyramid scheme being a pyramid scheme cannot go on forever.

So when the house of card crumbles, who’s left holding the bag?  Well the mainstream media thinks it should be the people who were paying their mortgages right up to the point that the house of cards crumbled, triggering a financial crisis that cost them their jobs, and thus making them unable to continue paying.

I prefer option two, which goes like this, as the banksters involved in the pyramid scheme amassed wealth in amounts that exceeded the value of the real property, in the name of the person that signed the mortgage, and as they were breaking the law in committing fraud, they should have to balance the books using the stolen money and the person who signed the mortgage should get to keep the house as a redress for the civil crime committed against him or her.

Any other course of action would allow the banks to get away with fraud and gain profit in the amounts they have stolen through the leveraging and on top of gaining the profits they would regain possession of the real property (the home); and as they have not only broken the law and gotten away with it, but have immensely profited in doing so, there would seem to be no deterrent for stopping them from doing it all over again.

And let’s not forget the insurance conglomerates like AIG that insure these fraudulent loans because that’s where the profit on these unlawful leveraging, actually comes from as they provide all of the monies that make up the deficiencies in real revenue at the top of the pyramid.  And that’s right; we foot the bill through bailouts and stimulus.

We the people, when it comes to an issue as minute as the seat belt law (a traffic infraction), are held to a standard of zero tolerance.  On the other hand there exists in our country a class of super citizens who can commit felonies without consequence.

In short, the people who have raped our country, destroyed our industrial base, and abused our people think they are corporate lords and that each little portion of our country they control is their private fiefdom.  As for the rest of us, we are either tenant serfs with limited rights if we are lucky enough to still hold property, or we are peasants without property or rights who they would like to be allowed to beat or imprison for daring to speak out against the abuses they are perpetrating against us.

How much more are we going to let them get away with?  I guess if they are hell bent on treating us like peasants we had better start acting like peasants and become hell bent on a peasant uprising.

It is said that the reason a Tier 5 unemployment extension cannot be passed is because it cannot be funded.  The unemployment rate is said to be set at 9.6%.  So where is the money being paid into the Federal Unemployment Trust Fund by the other 90.4% of the work force?  Answer:  In a portfolio, and that is the closest thing to a straight answer you are going to find anywhere.

If you research this subject you will find investments, returns, monies taken in, monies paid out, monies loaned, monies owed and burn rates.  Of course all of these categories are broken down by state and then by district making the understanding of the figures a task for an Olympic grade team of auditors.  However, there is one statistic that stands out and it indicates that the Federal Unemployment Trust Fund takes in at least $6 billion per year.

I have seen responses on the comment board indicating that there are a lot of people among the 99ers who have been paying in unemployment for thirty plus years and have only drawn 99 weeks.  So let’s try something simple.  Let’s be generous and just look at one year’s trust fund revenue drawing 3% interest.  In one year $6 billion gains $180 million in interest and over thirty years that $6 billion earns $5.4 billion in interest for a total of $11.4 billion. Remember, that’s at 3% and not figuring in compound interest as I am not willing to spend three or four days trying to figure out the compound interest with 6 billion being added to the fund per year, quarterly, by state, and by district.  I’m going to say that there would have to be $500 billion in that account after 30 years, even with a recession now and then.

So, after putting $500 billion into an account as a hedge for the workers to allow them to survive a recession, why are there no moneys to pay for a Tier 5 extension.  Well, without breaking it down 10,000 different ways, this is as close as I can come.  The 2002 Reed Act allows for excess funds from the Federal Unemployment Trust Fund to be redistributed back to the states’ unemployment accounts.  This wouldn’t be a bad idea, except that when the money came back to the states it was counted against what the employer had to pay in, thus reducing the amount the employers had to pay per worker.

In essence, what is happening is the employer is paying a set amount into the federal fund.  That money is being invested and when it yields a return, rather than those monies being set aside to insure employment, it is being sent back to the states and given to the rich businesses in the form of tax breaks.  This is what the breakdown in the numbers is designed to hide.

Now that there are millions of unemployed, not only is the money not there to pay unemployment insurance, but, as the rate the employer has to pay has been reduced by 30%, it can never catch up, as hundreds of thousands more become unemployed every month.  Once again, what was supposed to be our property is swindled and funneled into the vaults of the wealthy and now that they have it, they are using all the power that it wields to make sure we never get it back.

Note:  Under Bush’s cuts on capital gains and taxes in general for the top two percent, the rich paid minimal tax on these monies invested for them and returned to them, with a profit by the low life scum bags posing as our representatives.

We need a complete audit of the federal and state unemployment system to bring this Ponzi scheme to light and find out what happened to our unemployment money.

Apparently the all-holy business people who are looking to put on new employees want workers who are already working, as they are assumed to be the better worker.  No accounting for the cliques I suppose.  I don’t know how the cliques work in your area but this is how they work in mine.

The governors, mayors, congressmen, commissioners, and big business owners make up the upper echelons.  You can usually find these people in the Masonic temples planning their dirty deeds.  From there the cliques spread out into the churches and local community action boards.  That’s when the good old boy buddy system kicks in: construction companies, logging companies, towing companies, garages, hotels, and restaurants.   You will find these people in your local Masonic lodge.  If you are observant at all you will have noticed that these rings never really experience any economic disasters like we do.  They may have to fire an employee or two, but you will never see one of them in a soup line.

Road construction especially gets my goat as I have never seen it slow down.  However, it was the first industry addressed when our latest economic crisis kicked in.  There is a reason.  When the money comes to the state via a grant those in charge of distributing the funds are in a position to receive a long series of kickbacks and favors owed through the contracting of services.  I guess what it comes down to in the U.S. these days is, “it’s not what you know, but rather who you know”.

This coupled with the degenerative consequences of hereditary wealth is the poison that kills countries.  The problem with hereditary wealth is that a moron can be born from two geniuses just as sure as a genius can be born from two morons.  If you look at history it is wrought with the consequences of hereditary wealth and power.  Caligula married his horse and Nero fiddled as Rome burned.

When most of us were children in school we were told that anyone could grow up and be president, which was just another lie.   Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama can all trace their lines back to the crowned heads of Europe.  History has shown that civilizations, like trees, tend to die from the top down.  And let’s face it we have a lot of dead wood at the top in the good old U.S. of A.

It is a shame that it is always the innocent who have to suffer for the sins of the guilty but until human beings finally come to realize what a precious thing life is, it will continue this way.  The only bright point being that when civilizations crumble due to hereditary wealth and greed, unless life is completely destroyed, the human spirit endures and people build new civilizations and for a short while before hereditary wealth kicks in again the cream always rises and the regular folk get to enjoy their day in the sun.

This will be the last article I will write for World News Heard Now (labor dispute) but I will never quit fighting the insanity of the international corporate mafia.  I will attack them any and every time I see a weakness.  I say to all of you out there who have read my thoughts; I’ll see you in the streets.

We have all probably seen images from the Great Depression Era of soup lines, sometimes several blocks long.  Some people today have a problem coming to grips with the depression we are in as there are no images of those soup lines.  You have to remember we are living in the twenty-first century and the soup lines of today consist of a plastic card in your wallet or purse.

There are many people out there who like to advocate ending the food stamp program.  These are the same people who say the 99ers are lazy and should not get any further unemployment extensions.  The average food stamp recipient gets $133 per month, divided by thirty days equals $4.43, divided by 3 meals per day equals $1.48.  If you are not near a grocery outlet your average can of soup will cost around a dollar fifty.  Now imagine any citizen back in the Great Depression days begrudging the people in line that bowl of soup.  What have we as a people become?

I have seen the party line of the Republicans, which it would seem only a rich man could back being parroted by people making $20,000 per year.  Mark my words this day; the international corporate mafia is getting ready to hack another large chunk out of the middle class, and by this time next year the people talking down at the unemployed will have become the biggest hypocrites to ever breathe.

Oh yes, I’m going to be online using names like Tony and Big Daddy telling them to get a job and pound the pavement.  Or maybe I’ll be real sadistic and tell them that the best thing they can do is kill themselves as their situation is hopeless because nobody cares and who knows maybe a few of them will.  If things keep progressing the way they are I will probably be charged with a hate crime, have my computer confiscated, and be sent to a reeducation camp where the very same people complaining about Tier 5 and food stamps will be paying a couple hundred dollars per day to house and feed me.  But that will be alright with them, as their infatuation with Fabien social communism defies all logic and reason.

There are presently 42 million people receiving food stamps.  Now that’s a long soup line.  There are approximately 22 million people out of work indicating that about 20 million of the 42 million receiving food stamps are working, yet there are still people out there advocating lowering the minimum wage and telling others that they should accept a reduced standard of living.

These very same people will not speak out against the corporate welfare recipients as they idolize and long to become one of them.  But that’s alright, as I know that the international corporate mafia will see to it that one day soon our ignorant brethren who are looking at the world through their five dollar pair of Chinese made, rose colored glasses bought at Wal-Mart, will join us in the great soup line.

Vote out all incumbents, Demopublicans and Republicrats alike.

So, what is the latest plot being hatched by the international corporate mafia?  Have you ever heard of Quantitative Easing?  Well this is how it works.  The Federal Reserve has raped our country to the point that they can no longer charge interest on the funny money that we print and give to them to lend to us.  So, they found themselves asking, “Is there any way we can possibly steal more tangible wealth from the American people?”

They answered themselves, “Well do you think they might fall for another dose of quantitative easing, if we called it ‘QE2?’”

And then, “Yeah, that’s a great idea.  Let’s call Timothy Geithner and order him to fire up the presses and print us up a trillion dollars in funny money, have him send it over, we’ll stamp it received, send it back to him, and then he can send us a trillion dollars in U.S. Treasury bonds, which we’ll put in our strategic reserves and earn 3% interest from the American taxpayers on our funny money, through the treasury bonds.”

If we take this one, we might as well surrender this country and hand the keys over to the international corporate mafia, as we will have proven that we are the dumbest people on this planet and do not deserve to have our own country.

I’m sure China will be excited to hear about the new QE2 plan, as they will be assured that the interest rates on treasury bonds will be going up and they will be procuring more of the U.S. through our debt to them.

There have been a lot of people on the comment board expounding, “Now just stop all the bad talk”.  Well, I’ll tell you what people, we had better be talking about these things every second we can while we still can.

There is a push, at present, to pass legislation that would in effect put the internet under the control of a new agency made up of government and corporate representatives, with a communist czar at its head.  The excuse for the legislation is to combat malware.

Last year the government put out a false release saying that The Drudge Report, which is the number one online alternative news site in America, was infected with malware, in order to try to stop people from going to that site for the truth.

If this legislation becomes law, the only way it can be enforced is to have a firewall installed in every computer that will send its data to a centralized database so that it can be analyzed, to separate and quarantine computers with malware.  So how are you going to like having all the contents of your computer sent to a database controlled by a Czar?

Call me paranoid, but I believe that these social communist lowlifes will infect any computer or site that they do not want on the net with malware and shut it down.  Not that any of us are going to have the resources to buy a computer or internet service, as we are going to see the rest of the middle class wiped out through the QE2, when they fire up the presses.

The mainstream propaganda machine is advising the rich who have been sitting on their fortunes to buy gold as a hedge against inflation, as the Chinese have been manipulating the value of their currency which will be driving down the value of the dollar.  Isn’t it interesting how efficient the one world economy is at picking the pockets of the poor and transferring that wealth anywhere in the world with the push of a button?

If there are any 99ers out there who are not feeling like their whole world has been turned upside down, I’d like to know what you are taking, as I want some too.  The private sector lost 39,000 jobs in September.  Initial unemployment claims have been averaging 450,000 per week since January, and as the unemployment rate has not been rising, one has to believe that an average of 450,000 people per week have been losing their unemployment and joining the ranks of the 99ers.

How long does the international corporate mafia think this can go on before violence erupts?  Answer:  Not very long.  The fact is the internationals want violence, as they need violence in order to justify enacting a total police state.  This is why the Tier 5 has not been passed.  They need to get the people in this country under control, as we are hampering their progress on many fronts, one being the North American transcontinental highway which would run from Canada to South America.

This is why doing away with our borders is essential to them.  Once the borders are removed, a flood of cheap labor will come pouring into our country.  Even those enjoying life in the middle class right now will be wringing their hands and asking themselves, “Why didn’t we stop it when we had the chance?”

As many of you know, the traitor Obama has filed suit against the sovereign state of Arizona, which is a member state in the sovereign united States of the Americas.  He is now procuring the assistance of Mexico and Brazil to send their legal experts to aid him in our courts in his treasonous attack against the people of Arizona.  And what is his excuse?  Arizona’s law might affect international commerce, as it could hypothetically result in a Mexican or Brazilian business person being unnecessarily detained.   (What a crock)

Anyone who cannot see this blatant communist traitor for what he is is blind in one eye and can’t see out of the other one.

Constructive treason against the United States of America consists of the advocating of any form of government in the United States other than the free republic described in the Constitution for the United States.

Prima facia is a term in law.  It is defined as follows:  At first sight; on the first appearance; on the face of it; so far as can be judged from the first disclosure; presumably; a fact presumed to be true unless disproved by some evidence to the contrary. (Source: Black’s Law Dictionary)

By all rights Barack Hussein Obama should be impeached and then tried in a court of law for the crime of constructive treason against the people of the United States of America as the prima facia evidence clearly indicates that he is a traitor.

All you Tea Partiers out there had better start asking yourselves why no politician, in power or out, is addressing this undeniable fact, including the Independent candidates.  If any of our so called representatives knows that treasonous acts are being committed by any other representative they are bound by law to stop and correct the situation.  Every damn one of them is complicit to the treason for failing in the duty to stop and correct, including, I’m sad to say, Ron Paul.

I think it’s time to get on our phones and computers and text, email, and tweet demanding that President Obama be impeached.

Seems like just last week, our so called representatives were forking over another $30 billion to the banks, in particular small banks.  We were told that this money was going to loosen up lending so that the rich people who owned businesses could get a new line of credit.

My fellow 99ers, when I was learning about business and economics in high school, one of the most basic principles involved getting out of the red and into the black.

Where I live a lot of businesses failed due to the economic crisis.  But what exactly was the economic crisis that shut down these businesses?  The fact is most of the businesses that shut down had been operating using a line of credit (in the red) for the past twenty years.  This is how rich people run businesses and make sure that if their business fails, they are not the ones who eat the losses.

President Obama told us that the only way we are going to get these private business people who are sitting on their private fortunes to start back up so that they might give us a job, is to put billions of dollars in our local banks so that the businesses can access it, thus a new line of credit and a new chance to accumulate profit with zero risk to their own money.

When we go into a double dip recession we can have another economic crisis, they can file bankruptcy on their businesses again, the tax payer will get to eat their losses, and, of course, whatever money they make while operating in the red, will be added to their personal bank accounts.

Tell me how many times do we have to get punched in the nose before we learn to hit back?

The mainstream media propaganda machine is reporting that the number of small bank failures is going to increase.  In particular, 66 small banks are expected to fail this year and most, if not all, will have received a portion of that $30 billion and will have given rich people with businesses a line of credit.

Then I guess will just scrape up another $30 billion and do it all over again.  Remember, it was just a week ago that we were being told that this $30 billion giveaway was going to solve all of our problems.  They must think we have the memory span of a head of lettuce.

Isn’t it kind of ironic how they came up with $30 billion as the amount to be given to the small banksters?  This is the same amount it would take to fund a Tier 5 Unemployment Extension.

Ever wonder where the money goes?  I mean true tangible wealth.  You know like treasury bonds?  As in the Chinese are pushing our so called representative government to up the interest rate on our treasury bonds to 3%, as they hold $850 billion worth of them.  Could it be that the $30 billion was earmarked for China from the get go?  And could it be that Timothy Geithner is going to transfer the $30 billion into Chinese accounts via the interest rate increase?  I mean, what is our so called government going to tell China, “No”?  If the Chinese called in all the U.S. securities they hold, it would send our economy into a tailspin and our dollar would devalue even more, if that’s possible.

The extraction of tangible wealth can be simplified as follows:  The small business operating in the red loses its line of credit (financed by the Chinese), goes bankrupt,  you lose your job, the bank repossess your house you have been paying on for twenty years, the equity you had in your house (the sweat from your brow that created the tangible wealth/product) is used to pay off the line of credit (to the Chinese), that your ex-employer filed bankruptcy on, and the bank has the house so it can start the process all over again.

People, we are being defrauded, conned, bamboozled, and stolen from.  I find myself asking, “What Next?”  Are they going to come bursting into my house to cart off my stereo and television; my clothes and food?   Because the rich man down the road took a line of credit and went bankrupt on it and his money can’t be touched, as his keeping his money is too vital to our economy.

When everything including the clothes on our backs is gone and we are standing in the streets naked, shouting to the heavens, “Why?”, do you think any of us will feel any comfort when the two bit con man, Barack Hussein Obama, AKA Barry Soetoro, appears in a hologram in the sky that’s being broadcast from Switzerland with that feces eating grin on his face saying, “Now calm down, it’s only money”?

Ed Shultz, of MSNBC’s The Ed Show, came out swinging in a blatant effort to try to get the demodummies to take another big slug of purple Kool-Aid.  Ed, who is an actor and not a very good one at that, showed a clip of himself addressing the so-called One Nation Rally, which was made up of 400 individual social communist groups.  Ed, wearing his size 55 pants, paced in front of the National Mall shouting like an evangelist preacher that all of Obama’s failures were the fault of forty republirats in the Senate.

Well Ed, if I remember correctly, the demoscums had a supermajority, which is to say they could pass anything they wanted and no one could stop them.  In order to get that supermajority, the international corporate mafia had their boy, Arlen Specter, who was then a senior senator for the republirats, defect to the demodummies.  Have they not shown that when they want a piece of legislation passed it can be done in a matter of days?  The demodummies passed the legislations they were ordered to pass by the international corporate mafia that owns them, just as the republirats did when they had the majority under Bush.

Ed went on to say that the republirat controlled press was downsizing the actual size of the One Nation Rally.  Further, he said that there were actually 170,000 people in attendance, which he bragged was more than the 87,000 who attended Glenn Beck’s rally, which was labeled a “Tea Party Rally”.  From what I saw on television, I would have to say there couldn’t have been more than 10,000 at either rally.

I know some of you are going to say, “But they reported that there was more than 100,000”.  Well there is an old saying in the patriot movement that goes like this, “If a tree falls in the forest and the mainstream media doesn’t report on it, does it make a sound?”  The answer to the question is hell yes it does.

The true tea partiers marched on Washington DC on September 12, 2009 and numbered between 1.2 and 2 million.  The mainstream media barely covered the event, and what they did show were tight angle camera shots that hid the ocean of people who were there; red, yellow, black, white, rich, and poor.  The press didn’t report it, but it damned sure made a sound that is resonating to this day.  There is another old patriot saying, “The mainstream media lies.”

No Glenn Beck, you are not getting out of it that easy.  You and your psycho buddies, like Senator Jim Demint, claim that God is telling you that He wants those tax breaks extended to the top 2% and for the rich to keep getting richer and the poor to keep getting poorer.  You’re all a bunch of charlatans and corporate whores.   And if a god spoke to you, it was a god with horns on its head and hooves for feet.

If you people cannot see what these petty dirt bags are trying to do, you are beyond help.  When I was a kid, my brother had a little poodle dog that was the most vicious animal I have ever seen.  My dad worked as a diesel mechanic.  Before he would leave work to come home he would use hand cleaner on his hands and wipe them dry using those little blue paper wipers.  The last wiper he used would be barely soiled, so he would stick it in his back pocket to be used at the next instance of need.  The little poodle dog loved my dad and when my dad would come through the door the dog came bounding up to him with its customary snarling.  Sometimes my dad would take the wiper out of his back pocket and start spinning it above the dog’s head.  The dog would start chasing the wiper, spinning in a circle.  After a while my dad would stop and go sit down in his chair and the dog would continue spinning in a circle, sometimes for more than a minute.

Ed and Glenn remind me of my dad with the wiper and the people who are listening to them are as dumb as that dog.  See, Ed and Glen are hoping that the demodummies and republirats will keep spinning in that left-right paradigm just long enough for them to pull it off one more time, as they know that one more time is all its going to take to finish destroying this whole damn country.

If there is anyone out there dumb enough to listen to either one of these two-bit actors, I say you do not deserve to be in this country.  I tell you, straight up, I am sick and tired of living with the decisions of stupid people.

For the rest of you who have broken free from the left-right paradigm, I hope you are as outraged as I am and are asking the question, “Just how dumb do you think we are?”

In the debate over the Tier 5 Unemployment Extension, the assertion is frequently made that those seeking Tier 5 want something for nothing.  The majority of we 99ers have worked since we came of age and up until jobs ceased to exist in our country.  Some people had thirty years on the job when they were forced onto unemployment.  Those thirty years earned them only 99 weeks of unemployment.  I have to believe that the interest on the taxes paid by an individual over thirty years would equate to more than 99 weeks of unemployment.

Now let’s look at some other people who got something for nothing.  Passed on May 20, 1862, the Homestead Act accelerated the settlement of the western territory by granting adult heads of families 160 acres of surveyed public land for a minimal filing fee and 5 years of continuous residence on that land.

The Homestead Act is looked upon by many, me included, as one of the cornerstones for the building of our country.  But was it not a massive giveaway of public lands and resources that belonged to the people, et.al.?  This massive giveaway resulted in huge increases in farming and ranching, which in turn resulted in the establishment of industrial enterprise, which was necessitated by the accumulation of family fortunes and the desire to manufacture goods to sell to the new middle class.

You might call the Homestead Act a stimulus given to the common man who was seeking the American Dream.  But like today, stimulus back then could not be given to the common man without giving a gluttonous amount more to those who were already filthy rich. (The international corporate mafia)

One of the most controversial of the public lands “disposals” was the railroad land grants, a series of federal and state acts between 1850 and 1871.  Prior to 1862, the grants were made via the state governments; nine states granted almost 49 million acres in railroad land grants. In 1862, with the advent of the interstate transcontinental railroads, the federal government began making the grants directly to railroad corporations.

The total land grants to railroads were 130.4 million acres.  The railroad land grants covered ten percent of the continental United States, yet because of the corridor and checkerboard patterns of the grants; their influence extends considerably beyond that. One historian estimates that railroad corporations controlled the settlement of a third of the country, and an even greater portion of the American West, where most of the land grants were located. Even today, the largest land owners in many Western states are still the land grant railroads and their corporate heirs.

Much of the land has been sold to or spun off into new corporations, and the legacy of the nineteenth century railroad land grants is a remarkable and troubling concentration of land ownership and exploitation of natural resources which was never intended by Congress. The control exercised through grant lands has and continues to translate into economic and political power for the corporations which control them.

Since the original land grant laws were written, a third of the land grants have been reclaimed by the U.S. government because of grantees’ failures to fulfill public policies. But millions of acres are still being held and abused by the corporate heirs of the unenforced public land grants. Checkerboard lands within our national forests are being clear-cut, strip-mined, paved, and developed. Scenic lands and wildlife habitat are being lost. Taxpayers are losing millions of dollars in bad public/private land exchanges. Workers and communities are being poisoned with toxic waste. Corporations are squandering our taxes, writing our public laws, and controlling local and national governments.

So, getting back to today, the richest of the rich are crying foul because our so called representatives have not yet extended tax cuts to the top 2% earners in this county.  They are also the ones pointing their fingers at the 99ers and exclaiming that we want something for nothing.

How about you swindling scum bags be made to give back all you have stolen and we the 99ers, working poor, and disenfranchised can just divide it up through a 21st century homestead act which, coupled with trade tariffs, would end poverty overnight.  And like the first Homestead Act, it would necessitate the rebuilding of our industry in order to provide American made goods to the new middle class who would be driven to keep their money in their country to insure prosperity for their progeny.

It is time for the people in this country to stand up and tell the international corporate mafia, “Get out, this land is our land.”

Banks, CEOs, and people making $1 million plus are in a frenzy demanding the government, that they have bought and paid for, enact measures immediately to protect the wealth they have accumulated over the past fifteen years.  What they do not mention is that the wealth was procured via a transfer from the lower middle class and working poor to them.  This transfer was accomplished through the enactment of legislation that deregulated banks and actually paid the rich to move their businesses overseas, where they pay slave labor wages and very little taxes.   When they bring the money back into our country, they pay little or no tax on their profits.

Now that the rich have accumulated nearly all of the wealth, they want to pass laws that will protect their assets.  It’s really too bad no such laws existed to protect the lower middle class and the working poor.

When Freddie Mac, Fanny Mae, and AIG were about to go under as a result of the grandest Ponzi scheme ever perpetrated on the world, well, we just couldn’t let that happen.  When the lower middle class and working poor lost their jobs, it was C’est la vie, times are tough.

Fourteen million adults are at present living with their parents in order to try to survive from day to day.  They are the lucky ones as many more are living under bridges and in their cars.  At the same time, Paris Hilton, crown princess of the international corporate mafia, announces her new show.  Of course she will make millions of dollars for doing nothing more than babbling the babblings of the mindless twit she is, but hey, that’s just one of the bennies of being a princess.

It would cost approximately $33 billion for a Tier 5 unemployment extension.  The $170 billion still sitting in reserves would finance approximately five more tiers of unemployment.  But then that money wouldn’t be sitting in the filthy rich banker’s bank allowing him to lend out $1.7 trillion to his corporate buddies in order to buy up U. S. treasuries to falsely pump up the stock market, like they have this past September.

After the elections these loans will be called in, the stock market will drop, and there will be more, huge job losses. (Problem)  The people will demand that the government step in and rescue them. (Reaction)  And a whole score of new socialist laws will be put into place by our lame duck congress. (Solution)

After more of the lower middle class and working poor have been reduced to poverty and their wealth transferred into the vaults of the filthy rich, you will hear yet another call to protect that wealth from redistribution as the minions of the international corporate mafia shout out in unison, “There ought to be a law”.

Nicky Diaz Santillan is a Hispanic who has been in the United States illegally for the past ten years.  She became front and center in the news, when Gloria Allred, a California attorney, decided that she was not illegal, she was instead an undocumented worker who had been abused by her employer, Republican candidate for governor of California, Meg Whitman.

It appears that Gloria Allred is a supporter of Democratic gubernatorial candidate for California, Jerry Brown, and has been his ally for over three decades.  In fact she worked as a campaign volunteer for Brown back in 1974.  She also donated $150 for Brown’s campaign for State Attorney General.

In a news conference Ms. Diaz tearfully stated, “I’m doing this because I know a lot of Megs out there who are mistreating the meekest who work so hard for them.”

Ms. Whitman stated that she had hired Ms. Diaz back in 2000 through a hiring agency and that she was assured that Ms. Diaz was a legally documented worker.  In fact Ms. Whitman says she has copies of Ms. Diaz’s driver license and social security card, which in reality are forgeries illegally obtained by Ms. Diaz and illegally used by Ms. Diaz to obtain employment through the agency.  Ms. Diaz also signed an I-9 Form under penalty of perjury that asserted that she was legal to work in this country.

For nine years Ms. Whitman gave Ms. Diaz 15 hours per week of employment at $23.00 per hour.  So what is Ms. Whitman’s alleged offence?  When she found out that Ms. Diaz was illegally working in our country, she had to, as a matter of law, dismiss Ms. Diaz from her employ.  Ms. Whitman could have, and in hind sight probably should have, turned Ms. Diaz in to immigration officials and had her deported.  Ms. Whitman stated that she did not turn Ms. Diaz in because she liked her and did not want to hurt her.

Ms. Whitman is a billionaire. So how will this whole thing play out?  Well by right and by law, Ms. Diaz should be sitting in a jail, facing charges of illegally entering the United States, trafficking in illegal documents, and perjury and Ms. Allred should be charged with harboring an illegal alien.

But nooo; Ms. Diaz will no doubt be filing a law suit against Ms. Whitman for deprivation of her illegal alien rights, when Ms. Whitman should be suing Ms. Diaz for slander and liable and naming Ms. Allred as codefendant.   This little publicity stunt perpetrated by Ms. Allred could very well cost Ms. Whitman the Hispanic vote in California and ultimately the election.  A part of Ms. Whitman’s platform states that she supports vigorous prosecution of employers who hire illegal aliens.

Tell me this country is not 110% upside down and backwards.  I was born in this country, as were my forefathers back to the colonies.   An illegal alien just now crossed the border and has more rights and more representation in my country than I have ever had.

There are a lot of people online saying that Tier 5 is a dead issue.  I say it is only dead if we let it be.  If Tier 5 is dead I will tell you why.  It is because you 99ers out there, after a few months of being told “no” are willing to just lie down and die.  Nothing disgusts me more than apathy.

You know what I think is going to happen to Ms. Diaz?  Well I think this whole thing is going to quiet down up until and through the election.  Afterwards Ms. Whitman, her time being worth more than the money involved, will probably cut Ms. Diaz a check for a couple hundred thousand dollars.  Ms. Diaz will be allowed to stay in our country with her husband and anchor babies, and who knows, one of you who has lost your nice house might get to watch Ms. Diaz pay cash for it and move in.

Do you think you can muster some anger now?  Do you know who gets things in this country?  The people who raise hell do.

When the majority of California voters passed a law against gay marriage, the very next day the gays came out in force.  And guess what; that law no longer exists.  (Screw the majority)

When the majority of Arizona voters passed legislation mirroring our federal immigration law, the very next day the Hispanics came out in force and threw pop and beer cans at the police who were told to stand down.  And what do you know; President Obama and the Federal Government are now using federal monies taken from the people of Arizona to sue them for trying to enforce the law.

We get walked on because we let them walk on us.  And they will continue to walk on us until we say NO MORE!

This is not an endorsement for Meg Whitman but rather a condemnation of the hypocrisy inherent in the system.

As for the tears of the illegal alien, Nicky Diaz Santillan, I say fifteen hours per week at $23.00 per hour; I was born in this country and I’ll take that job.
