How Lucky It Is for Our Politicians That Americans Do Not Think

By John W. Whitehead

“A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.”--Edward R. Murrow
the problem is not so much that people cannot think but that they do not think.
It cannot be said that the German people were ignorant of Hitler’s agenda or his Nazi ideology. Nazi literature, including statements of the Nazi plans for the future, had papered the country for a decade before Hitler came to power. In fact, Hitler’s book Mein Kampf, which was his blueprint for totalitarianism, sold more than 200,000 copies between 1925 and 1932.
Clearly, the problem was not that the German people did not think but that their thinking was poisoned by the enveloping climate of ideas that they came to accept as important. At a certain point, the trivial became important, and obedience to the government in pursuit of security over freedom became predominant.

Haiti and the seismic weapon

What is particularly disturbing is the reaction of the United States. While the Western media are immersed in a controversy over the violation of Haiti’s sovereignty, the Latin American media are perplexed about the swiftness of GI deployment: as of the first day, more than 10000 soldiers and contractors arrived in Haiti. This logistical feat can be easily explained since these troops were already pre-positioned in the context of a military exercise. Under the orders of General P.K. Keen, Military Deputy Commander of U.S. Southern Command (USSOUTHCOM), they took part in an excercise simulating a humanitarian operation in Haiti after a hurricane.

It is legitimate to question whether such coincidences are simply due to chance.

Making Your Passion Your Profession

When you have a spare moment either by way of interruption or bad planning, turn on your screen saver instead of pulling up a mental list of to do items. A mental screen saver is a pleasant moment of peace you can remember. Have numerous screen savers and use them.

Don't Come to the End of Your Life Like This

I can see this happening to me. I really don't want to float around the world like a piece of driftwood in the water. I want to go somewhere and I want to drive.

Two years ago, I was asked to deliver the eulogy of a relative. It was an extreme challenge, as this person, unfortunately for them, lived the life of quiet desperation that Henry David Thoreau warned about. She didn’t have many friends (or none that bothered to even come to the funeral), and she wasn’t close to any of her family members, including her own child. I had really nothing to work with, no references to draw from, and no contribution or positive effect her life had on others or the world around her to mention.

The bulk of my eulogy ended up trying to explain (justify, really) her behavior and probably why she lived the way she did. The fact was, there was very little “life” actually lived there. She has now been gone for two years, and the loss is hardly noticeable. I am saddened even thinking about it—not sad for the loss of her, though, but sad for the life she lost out on.

This experience crystallized an important life philosophy for me: Write your eulogy now.

Michael Badnarik Update - from Michael Badnarik!!!!

I'm glad to hear this.
clipped from

First, I want to thank everyone for their concern and wishes for a speedy recovery. My physical correspondence is literally measured in POUNDS, and I haven't a chance to open more than a few. If all goes well, I may be released from the hospital at the end of the week, and then I to stay with my parents for awhile as I continue my recovery.

The worst condition that I still face is being without my laptop and Blackberry for the better part of a month. If I don't have them in my hot little hands by tomorrow, there is a small "mafia accident" being negotiated even as you read this. If you want to stay current, just monitor my website and my Facebook account.

I am kicking butt in the physical recovery area. I asked Alan (my best friend) to smuggle 15-20 used tires into the hospital for me. If you're familiar with

My Top Questions for 2010

I think the reason why al Qaeda attacked us is the boldest lie I have ever heard. Every person I know fights against tyranny. He is on a quest for personal, financial, political, and national freedom. History is nothing but a look at man's quest for freedom. To say that they hate us for our freedom doesn't fit.

"...9/11 Commission Report tiptoed into a cautious discussion of possible motives behind the 9/11 attacks... “America’s policy choices have consequences. Right or wrong, it is simply a fact that American policy regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and American actions in Iraq are dominant staples of popular commentary across the Arab and Muslim world.” (p. 376)

They are over here because we are over there.

But why it is so hard for Muslims to “get” that message? Why can’t they end their preoccupation with dodging U.S. missiles in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and Gaza long enough to reflect on how we are only trying to save them from terrorists while simultaneously demonstrating our commitment to “justice and progress”?

Does a smart fellow like Obama expect us to believe that all we need to do is “communicate clearly to Muslims” that it is al Qaeda, not the U.S. and its allies, that brings “misery and death”? Does any informed person not know that the unprovoked U.S.-led invasion of Iraq killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and displaced 4.5 million from their homes? How is that for "misery and death"?

But why isn't there a frank discussion by America’s leaders and media about the real motivation of Muslim anger toward the United States? Why was Helen Thomas the only journalist to raise the touchy but central question of motive?

Net Neutrality Explanation

a good explanation of net neutrality

Recently, we heard rumors that we not be able to access popular websites like MySpace and Facebook. We also heard that internet service providers (ISPs) were blocking certain websites, a serious affront to our First Amendment freedoms. I know what you’re thinking: there is no way this could happen in America. Guess what? We discovered that it’s already happening! We learned that the only way we can stop big corporations and ISPs from curtailing our Internet freedoms is if we have something called Net Neutrality. So we had to find out: what is Net Neutrality, and is the Internet as we know it about to change?

As A Man Thinketh > Thought And Character

Finding the handle to self-improvement.
clipped from

THE aphorism, "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he," not only
embraces the whole of a man's being, but is so comprehensive as to
reach out to every condition and circumstance of his life. A man is
literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of
all his thoughts.

As the plant springs from, and could not be without, the seed, so
every act of a man springs from the hidden seeds of thought, and
could not have appeared without them. This applies equally to those
acts called "spontaneous" and "unpremeditated" as to those, which
are deliberately executed.

Act is the blossom of thought, and joy and suffering are its fruits;
thus does a man garner in the sweet and bitter fruitage of his own

"Thought in the mind hath made us, What we are
By thought was wrought and built. If a man's mind
Hath evil thoughts, pain comes on him as comes
The wheel the ox behind....

..If one endure
In purity of thought, joy follows him
As his own shadow—sure."

The Story of Human Rights

I really believe we live in a day and age when people can rise up to push back the forces that subject mankind. With Martin Luther King, "I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply ... rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

Michael Badnarik Update

1. Michael Badnarik Has Heart Attack
I regret to inform you that my personal friend, arch patriot, Constitution scholar,
2004 Presidential candidate and most recently President of the 2009 Continental
Congress had a heart attack on Tuesday, December 22. Michael was unconscious
and his condition was diagnosed as serious.

At the time of the heart attack, Michael was in Madison, Wisconsin attending
a hearing regarding a raw milk case. After the hearing he got in a car to go
to lunch with friends, He then slumped over. His friends attempted CPR and contacted
the paramedics. They attempted to revive him 3 times with no success. Upon the
4th attempt his heart was revived yet with erratic behavior. He was then taken
by helicopter to Gunderson Lutheran Hospital CCU in Lacrosse, WI and fitted
with a temporary pacemaker and a balloon pump to ease stress on his heart.
As of yesterday, Monday, December 28, Michael's Mother, Elaine said that his
condition seems to have "backslid".

Jim Rohn - How to have Your Best Year Ever

Powerful truths that show you how to become the best you can be. This series reminds me of what the Lord said when He was developing His disciples. He put it this way...

"He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much. "Therefore if you have not been faithful in the use of unrighteous wealth, who will entrust the true riches to you? "And if you have not been faithful in the use of that which is another's, who will give you that which is your own? Luke 16:10-13
