End the Fed!

What you don't know about the Federal Reserve is hurting you.

This is one of my favorite articles for understanding the Federal Reserve: A Phone Call to the Fed by Dan Benham

Tomorrow is a nation-wide action day to protest the Federal Reserve. More info here:

Why was JFK assassinated 46 years ago? Could it be because he wanted to circumvent worthless Federal Reserve fiat money with money backed by silver? (Check out Executive Order 11110)

Why are the American people paying interest through the nose to a bunch of private bankers? Our country is crumbling. The gap between rich and poor has never been higher:

Fu-fu coffee

The last time I was fully employed with a decent-paying job was during summer break while I was in graduate school -- 9 years ago. I was a computer programmer and the job suited me very well. I was charged with making an application to measure water run-off, and I pretty much worked at my own pace, on my own time (a dream for me -- that's about the only way I *can* work). I remember being exceptionally proud of the final product. It was a serious challenge and I think I did an excellent job.

This was also the last time I had anything close to a "disposable income." It wasn't much -- I had a family to support, but I figure I had about $20 a day with which I could do whatever I wanted. Do you know what I spent it on, by and large? Fu-fu coffee. Fu-fu coffee is my name for the fancy-ass drinks you get at coffee bars: pumpkin lattes, mochas with a shot of peppermint ... if it was sweet and creamy I probably tried every flavor. Oh -- and because it was summer chances are it was iced or some sort of frappe. It's amazing how quick you can run through $20 a day if you hit the coffee bar more than once.

Talk about frivolous! The next 9 years I had to actually live on $20 a day. Try securing food and shelter on $20 a day! That's what the government expects you to do on SSI. But when I had "money" all that "disposable income" was poured into sweet frothy foam. And maybe a few cookies or a scone. I could say that was evil or senseless, but I know all too well why I did it.

It filled an emotional void. I didn't feel appreciated by anyone, and buying a fu-fu coffee was my way of appreciating myself. It was like filling up the gas tank of a perpetually needy ego. (I'm sure I told myself I needed the caffeine for the intellectual challenges of my work, but I know now that's bullshit.) Not an ounce of that coffee enriched my life or made me a better person in any way. (Well, maybe the time spent in contemplation, but I could've gotten that for free at the library.)

Now, as I sit in abject poverty, I contemplate all the useless crappy-ass junk my fellow Americans buy with their "disposable income." And I know they're about to get a giant wake-up call. I just happened to get mine early.

"We build too many walls and not enough bridges." -- Isaac Newton

I remember when the Berlin Wall came down 20 years ago. Here is another wall to be torn down:

When you look at the Earth from space you see there are no walls, no lines clearly demarcating the ever-changing borders on a globe. When I was a child the countries on my globe were a lot different -- there was a U.S.S.R. and a Rhodesia and a Yugoslavia. But the Earth kept turning and now all these places are gone, they were nothing more than constructs of the mind.

How much blood is spilled defending the unreal each year? Constructions of the mind that make what should be a beautiful planet a cold and lonely prison? I recall a verse from Woody Guthrie's This Land is Your Land:

As I went walking I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said "No Trespassing."
But on the other side it didn't say nothing,
That side was made for you and me.

Men Who Stare at Goats

I figured I'd post this article I found at rense, since I've not only met people like those featured in the movie, I'm actually an ongoing target of those who would try to use their minds to control others.

For those who wonder how the world suddenly seemed to turn into a wacky, energetically disturbed place, I'd encourage you to look into subjects like "remote viewing" and "remote influencing." I'm a bit curious as to why a subject that has been tamped down from public consciousness is suddenly the topic of a heavily promoted movie. I admit I haven't seen the film, but I remember browsing through the book at a bookstore a while ago. I'm sure it's just a limited hangout attempt to ridicule methods that believe me, are very definitely being used to shape public policy today ... but I sure hope it isn't also being used to try to recruit people into this dubious kind of work.

My words to people who want to be psychic warriors against people and forces they don't understand: this is dangerous shit. It's far easier to turn aggressive energy back against itself, just as in Judo, and if you start to think you can do anything because in fact, yes, it it is possible to hurt people with your mind, remember the rules of 'magick' ... anything bad that you do will come back to you threefold. But I'd certainly encourage people to learn how to defend themselves from aggressors in this sort of endeavor.
