Build Lots of Prisons, For We Shall All Be Criminals Soon Enough- The Sunday Collage

Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.

I've tried to be a good citizen most of my life. I've never had much use for rural speed limits but other than that- I've been pretty good. Once in awhile a murderous rage overcomes me, but as of yet, the government hasn't figured out how to ferret those thoughts out of me, pass a law stopping them, or just ask me to disclose them and send in a fine. So while I've had the good discipline to avoid any sort of rap sheet thus far- that is certainly subject to change.

You see, you simply cannot look at this leviathan government with it's Supreme Court rubber stampers and envision any sort of future or ending other than a violent one.

Nobody wants to talk about that. We think we can negotiate, reason with our masters. Come to agreement. We think we are too intelligent or civilized to have to settle our issues using "violence." Unfortunately throughout time- it is violence that settles most issues.

Try to envision a day, which shouldn't be too hard to do, when the government at all three levels- local, state and federal are garnishing your wages collectively at 75%- leaving you with 25%. The only people escaping this tremendous tariff will be the poor who simply can't pay it and the somewhat rare and uber rich who have already bribed our government to get the best tax treatment money can buy. The rich and elite also have the means to hide money and evacuate to some other locale. Being the chicken shits that I have known most rich people to be- I doubt they'd be much use to anyone, anyway.

That this is coming is evidenced by our government which has now passed a law preventing people who owe taxes from leaving our shores and suspending their passports. You will be stuck here like some poor, wage slave except this that plantation is much larger than the ones in South Carolina.

Thus at some future point, everyone stuck between the uber poor and the uber rich- will be getting their financial asses kicked paying taxes on everything. This will scale up rapidly I think, as more and more people drop out and the rich start to flee our shores. The most level headed among the remaining souls will want to negotiate with our government masters. Our government masters, having all the power will engage in some superficial negotiations and may even make a minor concession here or there- presenting themselves as cooperative. The middle class negotiators may use this as evidence that our government is still representative and responsible to "we the people"- which of course it is not.

The people with standing power never negotiate. Not only are negotiations not in their collective interest- they don't see any gain in making concessions. Power has a collective ego which says, "we are right and they are wrong." And so it is that our government masters will selfishly trench themselves in- ultimately making peaceful negotiations impossible. Our middle class negotiators will find superficial victories less common and anything substantive will be hollowed out and lost.

That is how this will end.

Now perhaps you are of the mindset that believes that all of this can be avoided. That somehow, some way, people will come to their senses in time to avoid all of this. To that I will point to the history of mob rule democracy- a democratic regime which is clearly in charge right now. They will appropriate for themselves anything they desire and they will invoke their majority as reason enough. Obamacare is a fine example of this.

Our masters are going to seize what they want from us. They are going to pass laws, tax and criminalize any sort of behavior which aids them- while diminishing you and your freedoms. People will appeal these arbitrary laws and seizures to the rubber stampers. The rubber stampers, members of government, will make their decisions in favor of government expansion which they have already been doing for 90 years or so.

And one day, when we are all sick and tired of losing- people are going to wake up. The force that divides us now will be the same force that unifies us then.

They'll pass a lot more laws, try to outlaw guns, outlaw gold and silver, outlaw currency and trade done in cash sans government monitoring. Credit cards with chips embedded in them will track you and shut off your money flow when they see fit. They'll pass laws preventing you from leaving our shores which they already have and they'll continue to tax you after you leave.They will pass a lot of shitty, freedom sucking laws and I suspect that most people- like the sheep that they are- will obey them.

There will be the dissenters, the old men like me, who will tell Obama, or Clinton, or Trump, or Congress, or Justice Roberts to go fuck themselves. I don't need any help reading the Bill of Rights nor do I need their bullshit interpretation of the commerce clause or their abandonment of "we the people" in favor of "we who write big re-election checks." It will be lonely at first. It always is.. These are the bravest of souls. The first ones will be labeled traitorous or treasonous. They will be punished and jailed, perhaps executed. Normal, decent folks like Edward Snowden and those that will surely follow him.

One by one, the pieces will fall into place. The government with it's vast array of eavesdropping capabilities, stored fuel, ammunition, drones and hastily built prison camp system- will think they are ready and own the high ground.

Americans, armed with well over a billion guns, a boatload of ingenuity, and a healthy distaste for a bully government will finally find some courage and have their say. The talking time will have passed.

Oh how I envy those who will see those days. Those deserters of death who will help restore the Republic. Government as we know it will finally be eradicated and re-manufactured with the additional lessons we have learned regarding campaign reform, term limits, the elimination of a central bank and the banking cabal once and for all, lobbyists and corporate bribery all gone. A fair tax and social programs where workers participate- rather than be ordered and gutted. Representation that spends money where it should be spent- at home. Never ending wars finished.Terrible precedent and woeful decisions by the rubber stampers thrown out. A re-installation of our Republic and a rule of law which applies to all once again.  What a wonderful place this will be then. What a wonderful place this once was.

And oh how I laugh at those that think things will be settled any other way.

All Men Are Not Created Equal- The Sunday Collage

I think men were created with rights. Be they God given or by galactic mistake. We weren't put here to serve others unless of course, we choose to do so.

I guess that choosing part, who chooses, makes all the difference.

Thomas Jefferson, the great polymath, penned the phrase "all men are created equal." As he penned that phrase, Tom must have forgotten about those slaves he owned. I suppose being a polymath does not always include uncovering your own hypocritical tendencies.The great truth is, all men are not created equal. They never have been. In fact it's not even close and as it turns out- that is a large part of our current problem.

You see the big credentialed geniuses then and now- really aren't the geniuses we think they are. The truth does not become truth simply because some well respected man utters a phrase which we wished were true but in all reality- is completely false. Wishing something were true does not make it so.

This week on "American Thinker" I read a piece about how the government can now seize your passport for being a tax "scofflaw." The author, part of the brain washed herd of Americans, thinks that it is perfectly fine to seize one's passport for an arbitrary amount of uncollected taxes- now currently 50k and certainly to be revised downward in the coming years, Apparently this author believes it is the state that endows us with our freedom. That our freedom to travel is some privilege that can only be conferred upon us by our government masters and now taken away as they see fit.

This is why I detest government yet love my country- filled as it is with brainwashed sheep. This is in large part why I started this blog. I come from the brainwashed herd.

In America, we once fought a war with a King over 3% in taxes. Today we think of nothing of paying 40-50% in taxes or better- nearly all of us- except for those wealthy, elite corporate souls who have created a tax law which allows them to dodge what those of us in the middle class cannot.

Please think about this. Every time the government snatches some of your money- you have lost the freedom that comes with that money. It might have been a vacation, tuition, or elective surgery. Your freedom, your ability to succeed, hinges on what the government takes from you. We see this  each time the government passes a new law- somebody somewhere is losing a freedom they used to possess.

Mostly we don't care as government sets about the task of identifying minorities- like lottery winners- and sucking up every last cent that they can get away with. Government couldn't accomplish such brazen acts of thievery without the aid of a hollowed out media that pretends to have some watchdog function- yet we all know that our media owners ride on horses carrying the government's brand.

We once had a media whereby authority was questioned. Where truth spoke to power and our Kings like Nixon- were banished in disgrace. Today we have a corporate media- completely captured and owned by elite tax dodgers. Afraid to call criminals like Hillary- a criminal. They sit idly by while these pieces of shit seek shameless power for themselves knowing they will benefit when they remind Hillary of the stories they quashed, of the checks they sent.

We once had leadership which refused to allow any central bank to skim off our wealth and inflate away the buying power of our work product by manipulating the quantity of our currency. Andrew Jackson where are you now?

We wouldn't dream of allowing tax money- money needed for running our government- to be siphoned off for loans to private banks, insurance companies, automakers, and anyone else promising votes or campaign contributions. We wouldn't have simply gotten rid of these government types that exercised control over our tax dollars- we would have had them prosecuted for malfeasance, fraud, or dereliction of fiduciary duty. Not only do they hijack our tax dollars, and create the very system that destroys us- but they have the shameless audacity to write books about themselves such as Paulson's On the Brink: Inside the Race to Stop the Collapse of the Global Financial System.

Our founders could not have conceived of a Supreme Court that rules nearly 100% of the time against "We the people" in favor of expanding government control over us and diminishing our freedoms every chance they get. A court that apparently has suspended the rule of law, turns a willful blind eye to 4th and 5th amendment protections against illegal seizures and due process- that allows government to do anything just so long as it can hop over the lowest bars of justification real or imagined. They do this because they owe. They owe their jobs to government and the party which selected them. You, they owe nothing to. You are simply some subservient herd animal, powerless to intervene or change the course of events. You exist as a conduit to be governed and fleeced. Any talk of freedom will be done with their permission.

That's how the system has evolved. Or devolved. The individual is powerless and he sure as hell is not equal.

I believed that Thomas Jefferson bullshit for 50 years. Until I realized it was bullshit, written by a slave owner, a member of the elite class of his day. No different then than the bullshit spewed by Trump to an angry America now. Trump is a man certainly created greater than equal, just like Mr Jefferson was. People are going to fall for Trump's bullshit just like Jefferson's. We desperately want what they say to be true. We believe it.

Unfortunately, it ain't true just because we want it to be true.

The reality is simple. We are not created equal. We are not free in as much as the great orators and geniuses of our time spout that bullshit. For me to believe that means I must disregard everything my lying eyes and ears tell me.

Government and freedom are not mutually exclusive concepts but they certainly are today. There is no stopping this. It will continue until such point that it can't continue- that will happen when virtually every American realizes they have been fucked and a collective anger the likes of which has not been seen in a long time sweeps across this land once again.

I shall end here today with the great inescapable truth about freedom which Isabel calls "harm"- as spoken by someone not a polymath and certainly not a member of the elite class.

“Most of the harm in the world is done by good people, and not by accident, lapse, or omission. It is the result of their deliberate actions, long persevered in, which they hold to be motivated by high ideals toward virtuous ends.” 
― Isabel PatersonThe God of the Machine

 Born Isabel Mary Bowler in rural Manitoulin IslandOntario, she moved with her family to the west when she was very young. She grew up on a cattle ranch in Alberta. Paterson's family was quite poor and she had eight siblings. A voracious reader who was largely self-educated, she had brief and informal public schooling during these years: about three years in a country school, from the ages of 11 to 14. In her late teen years, Bowler left the ranch for the city of Calgary, where she took a clerical job with the Canadian Pacific Railway. As a teenager, she worked as a waitress, stenographer, and bookkeeper, working at one point as an assistant to futureCanadian Prime Minister R. B. Bennett.
