This (s)Election, Vote For Me

I’ve been thinking a lot about the next Presidential (s)election coming up. None of the candidates on the ballot represent me, not even close. Only Ron Paul was “closest” (among the more well-known), but even he didn’t want to do enough to satisfy me.

I started thinking along the lines “if I were President” the things that I would want to do. This is a reasonable exercise for every American to engage in. What would you do? Just how close are the crop of candidates to representing you real views?

Death Of The American Empire

This is, in my opinion, an absolute MUST read article sent in by Lonewolf. It rather succinctly puts forth the absolute insane fiscal policies practiced by the United States banking industry with government help.

Death of the American Empire

Unfrickenbelievable. Please read every word in this article. Hard to accept that they were so unbelievably stupid to try this. The people that are behind these shenanigans should be taken out and shot.

Monday Newz

Cryptogon has an interesting lead article, Volvo has seen a 99.7% drop in truck sales. This will cause thousands of jobs to be lost. The blame is being placed on the financial crisis.

California home foreclosures have shot up 228%, another sign of the times, as the Australians who cannot withdraw their own money from their banks.

Also found on Crypto, and a real “I told you so” moment here on the wonderful police state we all get to look forward to, happening very soon in England, they are deploying thousands of mobile fingerprint scanners to harass their citizens:

Olduvai Theory And Our Response

Lonewolf shared this link with me, and I (slowly) read it through and pondered this most of the night. It is the Olduvai Theory: Sliding Towards a Post-Industrial Stone Age and it has of course, particular significance towards the future of all humanity.

First off, if you don’t know what this is, it is the representation of human history and the rapid rise and fall of the industrial age.

A Clear and Present Danger

Several people have pointed out to me the recent and real scare by the Department of Fatherland Security and the clear and present danger this agency represents with the newly designated “Constitution Free Zones”. If you have not heard about this, you should.

What is happening is the thugs at Homeland Security have designated a 100 mile wide “free zone” around the entire US border as being exempt from Constitutional protections. According to the ACLU, this zone encompasses a full 2/3 of the entire United States population.

Newz To Viewz

I have re-enabled the shopping cart again, those of you that have asked, it should be operational now.

My eye is better, still painful, but I finally got some pain killers to put into the eye. This made a dramatic difference. The first 24 hours were sheer agony. For some reason, the emergency room refused to prescribe any pain medication and I endured the first night thinking rather dark thoughts.

Nature Is The Great Equalizer

Read these headlines (or preferably, the entire articles) first: Climate Change, Faster, Stronger, Sooner

This falls right into my own predictions of how fast and serious this is going to be, except that they still need to update their timeline by several decades. The IPCC’s report (surprise, surprise) has already been found to be pretty far off the mark on how fast climate change is now occurring. Melting ice, rising sea levels and declining world food production are now all critical markers.

England Stabs Its Citizens In The Back (Again) And A Few Thoughts On The Real Terrorists

First found over on Cryptogon, United Kingdom citizen will be forced to present a passport to buy or use a mobile phone.

A compulsory national register for ALL 72 million phones will force England residents to open up their entire private lives to the government. Just imagine all the things you do with your cell phone. And now they want to force you to submit to government registration, which will lead to monitoring of your calls and all of your activities — but won’t do a damned thing to stop terrorism.

Farmer In Chief

This is a great article sent in by Lonewolf about our food plight in America, and how new policies at a national level must be swiftly adopted to prevent disaster from befalling millions of Americans. Great suggestions within, this is one of the better articles I’ve read on this issue in a long time.

Food security is a national security issue, one which is not receiving enough attention. Farmer in Chief

You’re Fired!!

I have a new phone number, so don’t bother trying the old one. I was receiving an unbelievable number of telemarketing calls due to our published phone number and nothing seemed to work to stop this.

The old 800 number is now dead, it died along with our long distance provider whom I’ve fired (ineptness and incompetence). My new number is not going to be published to try and stem the tide of bogus phone calls, I was giving away over $100 a month because of telemarketers who wouldn’t take no or “f*ck off” for an answer.  I cannot stand these scum.

Picture Proof Positive Of Collapse Dead Ahead

Exponential Growth and Global Collapse
The above graph is from the New Scientist, Special report: How our economy is killing the Earth.

It is a stark reminder of just how bad things are really getting. It is a perfect example of the exponential growth problem as shown by Bartlett and others.

The economic model was their focus — but there are other points I would like to make. Resources drive the economy, and treating the planet like a mined garbage dump is having devastating consequences to all life on Earth.
