I am National Security

In a Republic the People are the nation's security. There is no need for a massive, invasive security apparatus. The People protect a government which is for, by, and of the People. They are invested in it like their home. They feel that their voice is heard and their basic needs are met.

In other forms of government, which are almost all oligarchies with rare exceptions, there will always be a gestapo, Stasi, Cheka, or NSA… I meant KGB. These State Security services provide security for the State against the People who live under its dictatorial regime and may also guard against foreign governments “misleading” their people with the “wrong” information. State media provides very little in the way of “news” and relies on emotionally moving topics or “feel-good” fluff pieces. This keeps the people distracted from the financial shenanigans and more serious criminal activities “their” government is perpetrating.

If you ever want to pickpocket a couple guys, find two over the top football fans with team rivalries. Lure them into battle over who’s the greatest team overall, or best defense, or best offense, or best celebrity endorsements, or even the best smelling stadium urinals, virtually any minutia that sets your targets at odds will do. Once they are in the heat of “battle”, rob them at will. In the highest pitch of their melee, you may be able to proudly state, “I’m just stealing your wallets”, without either taking notice. That’s human nature. The surveillance state understands human nature because they have been watching you all your life. Their survival depends upon knowing your every weakness, your every flaw, your strengths, and even what you whisper into your wife's ear when you make love. Those who fail at this basic job requisite end up like General Pinochet or Shaw Pahlavi.

Loyalty to the State takes precedence over God, family, and friends, because the State is there to protect you all. The State has the ominous responsibility of loco parentis. You don’t know how luck you are to live in a State such as this; so free, so just, so much better than anywhere else, because this State is yours, your father and mother’s, and their fathers and mother’s before them.

"God Bless the State you’re in, your home, sweet home!(Tears streaming down your cheeks)."

Much must be done to protect such “sacred” moments. Things that must remain secret for many years. The State is always working for you but you may never know its work. There are too many enemies that would use the State’s secrets against you. So, the State must keep you safely in the dark, for you’re own protection. Never consider in a Republic, the People are the just powers enabling the State to rule. How can one rule in the dark for 40 or 50 years? How can criminals be held accountable for their crimes, if the victims in whose names these crimes were committed are blissfully unaware for a generation?

As the States criminality waxes, the need for ever more “National Security” redactions in public records until the information available to the voter looks like this…

All for your safety, of course.

Many years later, if the truth ever comes to light, you may find the redaction read something like…

The people are too easily manipulated by the “powers that be” when kept ignorant of the truth. Atrocities, even genocides have happened without the knowledge and at the expense of the people in whose names the government murdered.

The taking of the American West, was glossed over with dime store novels of Wild Bill Hitchcock, Wyatt Earp, and the great Indian fighter George Armstrong Custer. Had the truth been known, I would hope that Custer would have spent his last days in a military prison, atoning for his murderous rampages of mostly women and children.

Today, with the immediacy of satellite feeds and lightning fast internet connections, we feel more in touch with what our government is doing than in the days of telegraph and pony express. We feel more on top of things. Breaking news is transmitted around the globe and we are only a 10 second delay away. We have a fairly good grip on what the issues are that matter. We know who the hottest political hacks and candidates de jure are. We know the inner workings of the White House, 10 Downing, and the Bundestag, if we care to know. We can run this republic, at least, I can. My vote is an educated assessment of the facts of record about the candidates. I watched every debate. Our ego cries out, it's everyone else who is ignorant!

What if our data points were all a show, a grand performance from beginning to end? You were only window shopping on the magnificent mile of graphic user interface dream, while below all the glittering gold was a foundation built on rotting corpses?

What if there was no gold at all, just cheap spray paint masking lead bars and you must pay for the difference in value? What if you are just another Neo pre-Morpheus? Do you think that is air you are breathing?

What if all you’re well conceived and elegantly concluded opinions are only what you have been told to think? What if the information source you call home is really a construct designed to manufacture your consent for the crimes de jure rather than to inform? What if it didn’t matter who you voted for or even less who was elected, because the game is rigged before you cast a ballot?
  • The same wars declared. 
  • The same economic recession planned. 
  • The same housing bubble collapse scheduled. 
  • The same bottom falling out of the gold market on cue. 
I sound insane now, right?

What if I added “...because three central banks coordinated the sell off” to the last one? My sanity is suddenly restored, because now you recognize that type of coordinated effort as a very normal event in macroeconomics. However, the others are not the result of coordinated efforts on the part of conspiring parties?

As for the wars, may I say, “WMDs in Iraq”? Do you remember how deep the pile of falsified evidence was? Do you remember the extraordinary detail in Colin Powell's FALSE testimony?

The result of coordinated efforts on the part of conspiring parties!

Does anyone have a clue why we are still in Afghanistan seventeen years after 9/11 and seven years after we eviscerated Osama Bin Laden? Afghanistan sits like the great board game that you loved two Christmases ago, but now have moved on to some grander amusing thing. While it seems a thing of the past or static to us, it still festers creating more dead, greater misery, and ever higher expenses to you and your future generations.

The result of coordinated efforts on the part of conspiring parties!

Not feeling so secure now, are you?

Well, you better be because You Are National Security or a Nation of the Insecure as can be.

Choose your destiny: Freedom or Slavery?

The Truth About Illegal Immigration...

Illegal immigration is a problem in the United States. A serious problem. It's a problem that has great economic implications for our future of our nation. With this in mind, we have to examine the roots of our illegal immigration problem otherwise we are treating the symptoms without understanding the epidemic. In which case, we're all dead. 

The roots of this illegal immigration epidemic, as with all epidemics, lay in its history. Mexico had its richest and most productive lands stolen from it by.... us. The U.S. annexed California (currently the 5th largest economy in the WORLD) and Texas (currently the 10th largest economy in the WORLD) by military conquest. We outright stole it in the same way Saddam tried to steal Kuwait and Hitler stole Czechoslovakia. The only difference is, "This aggression DID stand". 

We stole the gold, the oil, and the bountiful farm land because we beat the living shit out of them and took it. It's as simple as that. Now, the  children of this impoverished nation, Mexico come begging at our door and your solution to right this wrong is to build a wall and make sure they remain impoverished while we split the booty. 

Just keep this in mind when speaking of what's "legal"... because we are on the wrong side of that Wall.

Fur-Lined Sinks for Free!

It's a Lie

Anyone involved in the business world long enough has heard the cliche, “TIME is MONEY, but the flaw in this revered fact is it's false.

The Worker Mindset

When paid an hourly wage, the employee assumes that an hour of our time is of equal value whether they are providing valued products or services to customers, or browsing Both provide the worker with equal compensation to service their wants and needs.

The Entrepreneur Mindset

Entrepreneurs understand that “PROVISION is MONEY. Time is the “space” in which provision happens or purses get perused on Provision is the process of providing customers with the goods and services they want and need for which they are willing to pay.

These paradigms delineate the division between workers and entrepreneurs. A worker may naturally by the law of calorie conservation avoid work while the entrepreneur finds or creates solutions to facilitate provision.

When someone with the worker mindset opens a business, they may spend countless hours preparing their product. Yet, even after declaring bankruptcy the dismayed worker mindset remains befuddled how those thousands of hours spent producing fur-lined sinks couldn't keep their custom kitchen business afloat. Trapped in the worker mindset, they churn the same irrelevant facts through their heads:

  • They had a monopoly!
  • They worked their ass off!
  • They worked from dawn till dusk every day.
  • They  poured their life savings into advertising.
  • They spent every waking moment living fur-lined sinks.
  • Life isn't fair.

No, my friend, LIFE is not FAIR, and TIME is not MONEY.
