April Fool’s Day Moved to April 15

If I could I would move April Fool's Day to April 15 to reflect how we have been fooled into paying federal income taxes even though there is no law to do so. I would then make April 1st Common Sense Day and start a tradition of reminding ourselves of the basic principles of a free society by reading or listening to Common Sense by Thomas Paine published in 1776.

Why listen to this most influential pamphlet?

Well, there are a number of important reasons. First, if you have not noticed, we are losing liberty at the speed of light. The coming economic collapse is about to make that woefully clear. Thomas Jefferson said, "Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty." Only when a critical mass of people understand the simple truths that make for liberty will we regain ground in the cause of freedom. When people feel the pain of tyranny but have their minds refreshed with these freedom friendly truths they will be guided out of their distress rather than remain under it to suffer further injury. This will benefit us all.

Second, America is predominantly Christian, but this is in name only. Most so called Christians are controlled by a mindless and destructive thought process that endangers us all. Many so called Christians believe it is our duty to submit to government without any limits. Not only do they practice this godless form of submission, but they advocate others to do the same resulting in many falling into the pit after them. Common Sense has a very effective Bible Study in it dispelling this dangerous mindset. To encourage Christians to read it I ask them, "Did you know that Common Sense has a Bible Study in it on kings? It does, it really does. Read it and tell me it doesn't." After reading it, most "Christians" will begin to change their way of thinking. I know because I was such a Christian and Common Sense changed my way of thinking.

Finally, Common Sense may be an old document but many of the problems we face today were dealt with in that eternal document. One such problem is apathy. Widespread apathy is probably the biggest cause of discouragement for those that care about the course of our nation, but apathy posed the same dilemma 230 years ago as well. In fact Thomas Jefferson alluded to apathy in the Declaration of Independence when he said, "that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed." And Common Sense wasn't the only pamphlet to be circulated in its day. In fact, over 2000 other pamphlets were written and distributed in an attempt to wake the people up and move them from despondency to action. Although Common Sense reached only 20% of the people, this seemingly small readership, along with the help of the other pamphlets, proved to be good enough.

So, if I could I would move April Fool's Day to April 15 and make April 1st Common Sense Day and challenge people to read the pamphlet. In doing this I wonder what creative ways we could celebrate the new April Fool's Day on April 15. Maybe we could show the Aaron Russo movie, America: Freedom to Fascism. It is an excellent documentary on the Federal Reserve and our Tax System that somberly points out that there is no law for the average person to pay federal income taxes. As a nation of laws this little fact surely paints us out to be a nation of fools. I'm not to happy about that; knowing this kind of takes the fun out of the day, but maybe it will ultimately lead to something better.

So, can I ask you to do something?

  1. For April 1st, proclaim it Common Sense Day and listen to Thomas Paine's influential message, Common Sense.

  2. On April 15th watch America: Freedom to Fascism.

  3. Let others know so they can update their calendars too.

Interesting Facts and Figures

If you listened to Common Sense, and then forwarded this message to 3 others who did the same tomorrow and so on each day until April 15, do you realize how many people you would have exposed to this important information? In just 16 days you will have reached 20% of the American population. (I wonder what Thomas Paine would have thought about that.) And just 3 days after that you will have reached 20% of the world population! A pretty mighty click of the mouse wouldn't you say? Maybe this is going to be a BIG revolution.

Thomas Jefferson on Counteracting Selfishness

clipped from etext.virginia.edu

"Self-love... is the sole antagonist of virtue, leading us constantly by our propensities to self-gratification in violation of our moral duties to others. Accordingly, it is against this enemy that are erected the batteries of moralists and religionists, as the only obstacle to the practice of morality. Take from man his selfish propensities, and he can have nothing to seduce him from the practice of virtue. Or subdue those propensities by education, instruction or restraint, and virtue remains without a competitor." --Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Law, 1814. ME 14:140

Where Party Politics Trumps Religious Principle

The Apostle Paul spoke about this same kind of sickness prevalent in the church...
2 Cor 11:20-21For you tolerate it if anyone enslaves you, anyone devours you, anyone takes advantage of you, anyone exalts himself, anyone hits you in the face. 21 To my shame I must say that we have been weak by comparison.
Such sickness was to be cut out of the church lest it spread. Just like the bankers cast a curse on our nation so this kind of people cast a curse on the church. There will be a purging and cleansing before the great and glorious day they boast about. If Jesus' treatment of the Pharisees is any indication of what is to come, then they will be the ones being purged and cleansed and "left behind". Repent!
was as if Christian conservatives lost all ability to reason; it was
as if they lost all discernment and discretion. Because George W. Bush
claimed to be a Christian, and because he was a Republican, he could
do no wrong. To this very day, the only group of people who yet approves
of Bush's Presidency is the Religious Right. Everyone else on the planet
realizes that George W. Bush's Presidency will go down in history has
one of the all-time worst.
Bush took a prosperous and robust economy, and led America to the verge
of a second Great Depression.
Bush has misused and abused our nation's
bravest and finest by his illegal and inexcusable invasion of Iraq.
No matter. The Religious Right still loves him. Why? Because he is a
"Christian" Republican.
To them, G.W. Bush ranks somewhere between Moses and the Almighty.
McFadden asked Bush if the Bible was literally true.
He said, "You
know. Probably not. . . . No, I'm not a literalist."
have become dupes for Bush and his fellow neocons.

Cheney Assassination Squads


Cheney Assassination Squads

MSNBC reported that Seymour Hersh has uncovered evidence that Vice President Cheney operated secret assassination squads out of the White House by using military personnel without the knowledge of the CIA. Keith Olbermann, host of MSNBC Countdown discussed the report with Jonathan Alter. Alter said that details will curl your hair.

Investigative Reporter Seymour Hersh Describes 'Executive Assassination Ring'
By Eric Black

March 12, 2009 -- "

In an email exchange afterward, Hersh said that his statements were “an honest response to a question” from the event’s moderator, U of M Political Scientist Larry Jacobs and “not something I wanted to dwell about in public.”

Hersh didn’t take back the statements, which he said arise from reporting he is doing for a book, but that it might be a year or two before he has what he needs on the topic to be “effective...that is, empirical, for even the most skeptical.”

The Chemtrail Phenomenon

clipped from www.youtube.com
The largest coordinated global engineering project in the history of our species. People across the world are noticing planes crossing back and forth in the sky leaving in their wake a trail of vapor that does not evaporate. These are not your normal commercial airlines following a preordained path from city to city. The mysterious unmarked planes leave smoke-like trails behind them that spread until by the afternoon they have blossomed and grown until the skies have become overcast. Officials from the Air Traffic Control the EPA and the Air Force will not respond to questions regarding this phenomenon.

Boomers' Future

In the wake of a stock market and home price collapse, most boomers are not prepared for the future. Let's explore that idea with a look at Is the Future Going Down the Drain? Baby Boomers Going Bust.
“In the last few months we've experienced explosive growth in interest by homeowners age 50-plus to find rooms and roommates,”
The report details how the collapse has left the majority of those around retirement-age almost completely reliant on entitlements. The net worth of median households in the 45 to 54 age bracket has dropped by more than 45 percent since 2004, to just over $80,000. Households headed by those aged 55 to 64, meanwhile, have lost 38 percent of net wealth.
This paper makes projections of wealth for 2009 for the baby boom cohorts (ages 45 to 54 and ages 55-64) using data from the 2004 Survey of Consumer Finance.
Boomers will be competing with their children and grandchildren for jobs that in many cases do not pay living wages.

POT Could Be a Great Long-Term Investment

clipped from www.inflation.us
Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan, Inc. (POT)
Current Price: $74.63
Potash Corp is an integrated producer of fertilizer, industrial and animal feed products. They are the world's largest fertilizer enterprise, producing the three primary plant nutrients: potash, phosphate and nitrogen.
POT recorded a whopping 80% gain in sales in 2008 over the previous year. POT also saw a gain of 216.7% in net income and gross margin rose to $4.9 billion, a 161% increase over the $1.9 billion in 2007.

POT has about $9 Billion in revenue, nearly $277 Million in cash, and a compelling trailing P/E of only 7.
POT has potash assets unmatched by any other world producer, and is expanding to build their competitive strength.
The fact of the matter is, demand is rising and supply is falling.
due to hedge fund redemptions/liquidations and the commodity sell-off, POT has been inexplicably sold off along with any and all energy or commodity related names making it an attractive agriculture play

    Thomas Jefferson on Moral Degeneracy

    From this I would deduce that control of the education system is imperative to overthrow a free people.
    clipped from etext.virginia.edu
    "When [the moral sense] is wanting, we endeavor to supply the defect by education, by appeals to reason and calculation, by presenting to the being so unhappily conformed, other motives to do good and to eschew evil, such as the love, or the hatred, or the rejection of those among whom he lives, and whose society is necessary to his happiness and even existence; demonstrations by sound calculation that honesty promotes interest in the long run; the rewards and penalties established by the laws; and ultimately the prospects of a future state of retribution for the evil as well as the good done while here.
    These are the correctives which are supplied by education, and which exercise the functions of the moralist, the preacher, and legislator; and they lead into a course of correct action all those whose depravity is not too profound to be eradicated." --Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Law, 1814.

    Why I Sued Google (and Won)

    What has google become?
    Ever heard of scroogle scrapper?

    Everything went according to plan until 11:00 A.M. on December 9, 2008. With a single click, a faceless Google employee decided that Think Computer Corporation's membership in the AdSense program "posed a significant risk to our AdWords advertisers," and the account was disabled with no warning. Trying to sign into the AdSense management site brought not the familiar user interface, with its limited account payment records and reports (including what Google currently owed Think, which amounted to approximately $721.00), but the following unhelpful statement, and nothing more:

    Thomas Jefferson on Morality in Government Administration

    Thomas also has another good quote (at the site) on what religions have in common that benefit us all. When the church loses sight of its uniqueness as an institution we all suffer for it. The church needs to see itself and the state as two separate God created institutions with two separate roles. They are interdependent, but separate entities. When they do what they were made to do the world receives a blessing. When they don't - we have what is happening today in the world.
    clipped from etext.virginia.edu

    "When we come to the moral principles on which the government is to be administered, we come to what is proper for all conditions of society... Liberty, truth, probity, honor, are declared to be the four cardinal principles of society. I believe... that morality, compassion, generosity, are innate elements of the human constitution; that there exists a right independent of force." --Thomas Jefferson to Pierre Samuel Dupont de Nemours, 1816. ME 14:490

    "[I consider] ethics, as well as religion, as supplements to law in the government of man." --Thomas Jefferson to Augustus B. Woodward, 1824. ME 16:19

    "Is it the less dishonest to do what is wrong, because not expressly prohibited by written law? Let us hope our moral principles are not yet in that stage of degeneracy." --Thomas Jefferson to John Wayles Eppes, 1813. ME 13:360

    New Mexico Calls on Fed to "Cease and Desist"

    New Mexico state representative Dennis Roch has introduced House Joint Resolution 27 to call on the Federal Government to “cease and desist” actions that go beyond the scope of powers authorized to it by the Constitution - and reserved to the States and the People by the 10th Amendment.

    “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”; and

    WHEREAS, Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution of the United States says, “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government”, and the ninth amendment states that, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people”; and

    Bartering Makes A Comeback

    Somewhere in the mix silver and gold are going to be circulated once again. Consider my affordable systematic plan for accumulating silver while spending it into the economy. 1. Get some silver. 2. Barter a few times with it. 3. Share the web site with these sellers. Soon, you will accumulate more silver than you spent into the economy for less than it cost the first time!

    Bartering Makes A Comeback

    March 2nd, 2009


    Capitalism isn’t doing well these days leading the entrepreneurial among us to embrace bartering. Traffic to Craigslist’s bartering section has more than doubled since last year as people to try to make use of skills that might not otherwise have much value.

    Boise beautician Heather Wood has traded haircuts and pedicures for years of day care, kids’ clothes, a paint job for her car, an oil change, a set of professional portraits for her family and dental cleaning.
    “It’s fun, and it builds a whole different kind of a relationship,” said Wood, who has five children. “They’re getting what they want and I’m getting what I want. I would much rather do that than make cash most of the time.”
    Kildow put his stuff on the Boise-area Craigslist site under “barter” and suggested horses, pack mules, a four-wheel-drive truck, a computer or a flat-screen TV in exchange. So far, he’s had an offer of a truck, some computers and a wedding ring.
