Progressive Naomi Wolf waking up to liberty — AMAZING!

October 31, 2008

Lew Rockwell chats with Naomi Wolf in this 50 minute podcast.

This is an extraordinary exchange. Forget Obama, here is real hope! Light bulbs turning on, the real enemy (the state) becoming clear and new alliances forming… This is the way to destroy the divide and conquer strategy the U.S. State has used so effectively to keep it about “left” vs. “right” or whatever instead of what it should be about.

In a den of vipers

October 29, 2008

It’s just cute when criminals argue about one stealing stolen money from the other. While ‘fees’ are not exactly the same theft as straight out taxation, most ‘services’ for which fees are collected are just unnecessary.

The Legislature accepted two New York State Archives records management grants, which were to have totaled nearly $69,000 for the County Clerk’s Office and $64,000 for the Legislature Office and Information Technology Services.  The County, however, has been notified that the State will reduce all grants by 6 percent.  Legislator Frank Proto called the action, which he said compounds an earlier reduction of more than half-a-million dollars in available state archives grant “thievery by the State,” since those grants come from clerks’ fees, not from tax revenue.

Shoot first……

Hard to say from here but cops should show just a little more courage.

Police chief: Officer fatally shot innocent man

Julian Alexander, 20, of Anaheim dies in hospital.

ANAHEIM – A police officer running after a group of suspected burglars early Tuesday shot and killed an innocent 20-year-old man who had come outside to investigate the noise, police said.
Julian Alexander was apparently roused by the suspects, who jumped a fence on his side yard around 1:30 a.m. He apparently grabbed a broomstick to defend his pregnant wife and in-laws, family members said.

Race for N.Y.’s 24th district

October 28, 2008

The Ithaca Journal gives us the run down on the candidates to represent the 24th congressional district. Nothing very inspiring in this race.

They both believe the Federal government needs to rule over the abortion issue (using the commerce clause of the Constitution). I guess that is reasonable since the birth delivery of a child is reported to the Department of Commerce.

They agree on carbon credit trading, a scam to make environmentalist think government is saving the planet while the politicians fill the pockets of their donors.

They both either have no clue or wish to ignore the true problem associated with a fiat monetary system. Either way, you can not fix a problem by tinkering with a symptom.

Arcuri swore an oath to the Constitution to guarantee free health to all. I guess that is in the general welfare clause. It looks like Hanna just wants to nationalize regulation of health care; I get the feeling we don’t need States at all.

On energy, they once again quibble about bits and pieces and ignore the relationship of gas price to fiat money ratio. Inflation is not a natural event. It is a product of a monopoly banking system. It is a product that the average American can live nicely without.

Iraq; there was no way the Dems could stop the war (unless they cut funding). I’m not buying that stuff.

Campaign finance is the golden goose to be protected at any cost. Somehow I think it might be related to the fiat money system.

So here is my bottom line. I’m going to vote for Richard Hanna. Like Thomas Paine, I think we can do better without a political class. Mike Arcuri and 433 of his associates should be returned to the working class. And in two years we can get rid of Richard Hanna too.

Doomed to repeat

October 24, 2008

A little piece of history for today, Andrew Jackson’s farewell address. He knew we would be here; a nation controlled by the banksters. It might be written off as ‘conspiracy theory’ if we didn’t have such a long history of repeated use of the same scam. We can be pretty certain McBama will not be an Andrew Jackson.

We are not left to conjecture how the moneyed power, thus organized and with such a weapon in its hands, would likely to use it. The distress and alarm which  pervaded and agitated the whole country when the Bank of the United States waged war upon the people in order to compel them to submit to its demands cannot yet be forgotten. The ruthless and unsparing temper with  which whole cities and communities were oppressed, individuals impoverished and ruined, and a scene of cheerful prosperity suddenly changed into one of gloom and despondency ought to be indelibly impressed on the memory of the people of the United States. If such was its power in a time of peace, what would it not have been in a season of war, with an enemy at your doors? No nation but the freemen of the United States could have come out victorious from such a contest; yet, if you had not conquered, the government would have passed from the hands of the many to the hands of the few, and this organized money power from its secret conclave would have directed the choice of your highest officers and compelled you to make peace or war, as best suited their own wishes. The forms of your government might for a time have remained, but its living  spirit would have departed from it.

Government leech suffers from ‘non-filer syndrome’

October 23, 2008

The Ithaca Journal reports:

ALBANY — The Paterson administration released records Wednesday that showed top aide Charles O’Byrne has paid back nearly $300,000 in overdue state and federal taxes, claiming he was delinquent for five years because he suffered from “non-filer syndrome.”

Tax payers hand over hard earned ‘dollars’ to support the $178,500 salary of an unproductive member of the political class. Being a member of the political class Mr. O’Bryne figures he need not pay ‘his fair share’. The poor guy suffers from depression so the tax payers should kick in a little extra to send him for a little R&R with pay, of course.

Who are the real socialists?

October 22, 2008

Is it possible that the bankster’s ploy of right v. left, red v. blue, divide & conquer is becoming too transparent to ignore?

The Campaign for Liberty

October 21, 2008

Our Ithaca Ron Paul Meetup has moved on to become a Campaign for Liberty Meetup. One of the things we have discussed recently is starting a political discussion blog for the Ithaca area. That brings me to wordpress to get a taste of blogging. I hope to learn a bit here and share my experience with our group.
