MEGATRENDS: A National Strike!    
 A National Strike!28 comments
The American government -- which we once called our government -- has been taken over by Wall Street, the mega-corporations and the super-rich. They are the ones who decide our fate. It is this group of powerful elites, the people President Franklin D. Roosevelt called "economic royalists," who choose our elected officials -- indeed, our very form of government. Both Democrats and Republicans dance to the tune of their corporate masters. In America, corporations do not control the government. In America, corporations are the government.

This was never more obvious than with the Wall Street bailout, whereby the very corporations that caused the collapse of our economy were rewarded with taxpayer dollars. So arrogant, so smug were they that, without a moment's hesitation, they took our money -- yours and mine -- to pay their executives multimillion-dollar bonuses, something they continue doing to this very day. They have no shame. They don't care what you and I think about them. Henry Kissinger refers to us as "useless eaters."

But, you say, we have elected a candidate of change. To which I respond: Do these words of President Obama sound like change?
"A culture of irresponsibility took root, from Wall Street to Washington to Main Street."

There it is. Right there. We are Main Street. We must, according to our president, share the blame. He went on to say:
"And a regulatory regime basically crafted in the wake of a 20th-century economic crisis -- the Great Depression -- was overwhelmed by the speed, scope and sophistication of a 21st-century global economy."

This is nonsense.

The reason Wall Street was able to game the system the way it did -- knowing that they would become rich at the expense of the American people (oh, yes, they most certainly knew that) -- was because the financial elite had bribed our legislators to roll back the protections enacted after the Stock Market Crash of 1929.

Congress gutted the Glass-Steagall Act, which separated commercial lending banks from investment banks, and passed the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which allowed for self-regulation with no oversight. The Securities and Exchange Commission subsequently revised its rules to allow for even less oversight -- and we've all seen how well that worked out. To date, no serious legislation has been offered by the Obama administration to correct these problems.

Instead, Obama wants to increase the oversight power of the Federal Reserve. Never mind that it already had significant oversight power before our most recent economic meltdown, yet failed to take action. Never mind that the Fed is not a government agency but a cartel of private bankers that cannot be held accountable by Washington. Whatever the Fed does with these supposed new oversight powers will be behind closed doors.

Obama's failure to act sends one message loud and clear: He cannot stand up to the powerful Wall Street interests that supplied the bulk of his campaign money for the 2008 election. Nor, for that matter, can Congress, for much the same reason.

Consider what multibillionaire banker David Rockefeller wrote in his 2002 memoirs:

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure -- one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."

Read Rockefeller's words again. He actually admits to working against the "best interests of the United States."

Need more? Here's what Rockefeller said in 1994 at a U.N. dinner:
"We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis, and the nations will accept the New World Order."

They're gaming us. Our country has been stolen from us.

Journalist Matt Taibbi, writing in Rolling Stone, notes that esteemed economist John Kenneth Galbraith laid the 1929 crash at the feet of banking giant Goldman Sachs. Taibbi goes on to say that Goldman Sachs has been behind every other economic downturn as well, including the most recent one. As if that wasn't enough, Goldman Sachs even had a hand in pushing gas prices up to $4 a gallon.

The problem with bankers is longstanding. Here's what one of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson, had to say about them:

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation, and then by deflation, the banks and the corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their father's conquered."


We all know that the first American Revolution officially began in 1776, with the Declaration of Independence. Less well known is that the single strongest motivating factor for revolution was the colonists' attempt to free themselves from the Bank of England. But how many of you know about the second revolution, referred to by historians as Shays' Rebellion? It took place in 1786-87, and once again the banks were the cause. This time they were putting the screws to America's farmers.

Daniel Shays was a farmer in western Massachusetts. Like many other farmers of the day, he was being driven into bankruptcy by the banks' predatory lending practices. (Sound familiar?) Rallying other farmers to his side, Shays led his rebels in an attack on the courts and the local armory. The rebellion itself failed, but a message had been sent: The bankers (and the politicians who supported them) ultimately backed off.

As Thomas Jefferson famously quipped in regard to the insurrection:
"A little rebellion now and then is a good thing. The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

Perhaps it's time to consider that option once again.

I'm calling for a national strike, one designed to close the country down for a day. The intent? Real campaign-finance reform and strong restrictions on lobbying. Because nothing will change until we take corporate money out of politics. Nothing will improve until our politicians are once again answerable to their constituents, not the rich and powerful.

Let's set a date. No one goes to work. No one buys anything. And if that isn't effective -- if the politicians ignore us -- we do it again. And again. And again.

The real war is not between the left and the right. It is between the average American and the ruling class.

If we come together on this single issue, everything else will resolve itself. It's time we took back our government from those who would make us their slaves.

24 Aug 2009 @ 19:01 by a-d : Rest assured
I will strike (against) The(ir) Root, (with) as many strikes and as hard as I have to till The Work is finished!

...To set a day: How'bout NEXT Purim : the twelfth month, on its thirteenth the day of the Strike...followed the fourteenth day by ; Party, party, party!Cheers, everyone! .... (and... after all: THAT is the goal of the "Thingi" we object to and would strike at: OUR World governed by only "one" Group -(at least according to what is currently to be witnessed...just like it was way back then at the very first Purim in Persia...so the Story goes...
So, this is where the strongest/biggest ROOT is & the Biggest Umbrella as well; to keep us from not seeing it... but under which the stage is all ready and set up by these most active and well organized Crooks. "No" to that! (...Let alone the rest!....)V as in V......a
BTW;Larry's article can be found on this link -among many other sites! ...it is making its rounds around the globe, already. No doubt! : )
[link]

Surely Larry Flint knows exactly what he is talking about --and inviting us to partake!-- After all; he's been an INSIDER himself... He must then --at some point-- come to realize, that he has to choose between remaining an Insider and --in that case-- NOT being allowed to be HIMSELF...EVER... or he had to step out from the Holy Group of "Insiders" . He chose his God-given Right to be himself!...and hence he needed to take his own power back!...( Hallelujahhh and Amen to that!)
"Ahhh, monDieu!... How can one be so deluded! annnn'... what arrogant display of horrible 'self-hating'!!...to make such a choice!..." Well, just watch!... All real and free-thinking humans WILL do just that! Eventually, at least! V as in V.....y  



25 Aug 2009 @ 04:58 by vaxen : Dave...
sent me the article and another friend of mine on twitter @ddjango (give him a follow and go to his site, please) incorportated it into one of his articles decrying the state of things Amurrikan...

ANd the people 'appear' to be waking up to what? More of the same old s**t! Sleep walking all with the thought of freedom so far imbedded on the silver screens of their decrepit incorporated minds that all I can possibly ever pray for is that Shiva, destroyer of worlds, will quickly put them all out of their 'collective,' Rockefeeler delusioned and controlled, miseries. It's over!

300,000,000 against 545? Baloney! Teaparties directing the 'people' to...vote? Stop voting, toss their fiat currencies into the streets, declare freedom and sovereignty for everyone and screw their stupid world! ;) An-Archos? Better...

Thanks A-d san for the link. I've been getting over some fluish type of thing probably induced by their chemtrail insanity. Buckeys has been getting me through it. FOr the first time in weeks I took the pups, including my paw, to the high hills and sat there in the deep wheat grass - overlooking all - with the puppies playing around me, licking my face, smiling up at me...

To hell with their world of miserable mind control and war! We can and will bring it to a hault tossing the pigs out from thier trough in Washington D.C. and other places where the 'elite' like to spawn forth their demons of waste and destruction. They hired the piper now they are going to pay! Like it or not.

Luv ya...  



25 Aug 2009 @ 08:54 by frank4zen : The real war
thank you ,this is vrey good !  


25 Aug 2009 @ 19:31 by vaxen : Sure, Frank...
and A-d added another link so we got it all! We're gonna win this thing come hell or high water! ☺§☻

26 Aug 2009 @ 19:00 by a-d : Vaxen,
I just woke up to another level of Understanding +seein through the lies to see their DARKest crimes against humanity: The BIO WARs!!!.... it has been in full swing --i now realize-- since its early inception in the 1800 hundreds when CHEMISTRY was new and fresh as The Cat's Miaw of the day! I look back into how Events played themselves out in my life and how I felt and what (other) small (???) health issues that "came & "went" / "came & went" in my life!.. I can clearly see the slow fluoride --among many other chemicals -- poisoning of me!!...

THIS is actually the very FIRST World War and it has been ongoing ever since --only added two more on top of that... NONE OF THEM EVER ENDED!!!
There's a video of how fluoride poisoning in its late stages affects humans on the U tube. I will post it even though you don't care to watch (for "given" reasons, heheh) but for all the those who have easy access to seeing utube I will publish the link: [link]

I would suggest the Memebers then to continue to watch ALL the different POISON/ing videos and say if STOP buying (which we, together with Thoreou) call "Striking the Root") is a better solution that will help you recover or calling your constituents or sending some letters (hacking the Branches) ... while YOU continue to buy and use the SHIT?!?!?!?....  



27 Aug 2009 @ 02:49 by vaxen : Yeah...
Bio Chemical Warfare exoeriments are as old as the hills. From the poisoning of the "enemies'" water and livestock to giving the Native Americans small pox infected blankets, yellow fever too, to todays' insidious chemtrail induced flu epidemics, avian flu, swine flu, moo moo...

So we spread the sad tail and DARPA does it's best to create a world amock for wars you've never dreamt about in your very worst nightmares. And people meander on and on about internet bullies and thuggery whilst their insides burn being poinsoned by the elite who've labelled them as "useless eaters."

Thanks A-d san...

27 Aug 2009 @ 19:21 by a-d : Great, great article
that really does a good analysis of our World arriving to a very accurate ( thus also very fair/just/ conclusion, methinks ) : [link]  


27 Aug 2009 @ 23:28 by vaxen : No kidding!
Civilized people, we are told, live peacefully and cooperatively with their fellows, sharing the necessary labour in order to obtain the leisure to develop arts and sciences. And while that would be a good idea, it is not a good description of what has been going on in the so-called advanced cultures during the past 8,000 years.

Civilization, as we know it, is largely the creation of psychopaths. All civilizations, our own included, have been based on slavery and "warfare." Incidentally, the latter term is a euphemism for mass murder.

Thanks for the link A-d...  



28 Aug 2009 @ 12:22 by vaxen : I wonder...
if there is going to be a "time to leave - part 3?" Baloney is baloney but I guess a little mustard can make it palatable, eh? Baloney is baloney w/or w/out mustard!

31 Aug 2009 @ 02:51 by mortimer : A National Strike?
appeal to authority?

One cannot sit at the table with a bunch of crooks and expect long term effective results.  



31 Aug 2009 @ 04:32 by a-d : Yupp,Dear Morty!... : )
".... crooks and expect long term effective results. "But we can --and should-- start PROTESTING to show we now mean business!.... "V" -as in "V------a" . "V" -as
in "V-----y".  



31 Aug 2009 @ 06:09 by vaxen : The authority...
of no authority. ;)

[link]  



31 Aug 2009 @ 09:55 by mortimer : No Deal!
i don't deal with crooks, dot period

The worse thing i ever did to somebody was nothing. You really desire to put the screws to some bad character, do absolutely nothing. To do nothing is most powerful strategy one has. There are rules to the Universe, and mathematics game theory missed this one...'bad character always backfires.

When you protest politicians you are empowering them. Why, you can even get a permit to protest, you see, because when you file for a permit, you are recognizing them as authority.

Protesting will only farther the suffering. The fastest and most effective strategy to end the current political game is just not playing the game at all.  



31 Aug 2009 @ 16:13 by a-d : You DO have a point, Morty!
...to do nothing To "treat" them as of they didn't even exist!..." if that is what you mean...? then I would agree very very much with you!....Vax& I just touched this very "they don't even exist-"method" yesterday. At least I meant: "I do NOT ACKNOWLEDGE them IN my World at all, any longer. Not kissing up to them any longer. Not licking their butt any longer". Not bowing to them in any way or fashion!... DELETED, DELETED, DELETED from my entire world,indeed; from my entire UNIVERSE. Period! so...I guess, going back to the"V-thing" is not a good idea... Oooops.... Thanks for straightening up my act!...heheheh... I will continue to RAISE the BAR of LIFE QUALITY for myself to a standard of living worthy to called Divine Life not just for myself for ALL (my friends around me and even those not so close around )... even those on the other side of the Globe, will feel the Butterfly impact... : )... I hope.... Hoo'ponopono!  


31 Aug 2009 @ 22:50 by vaxen : Too bad...
that just ignoring them will not make them go away. When they come for you to inject you with their vaccines against their tailor made for our destruction swine flu and you say no and they say "wanna bet?" we'll just ignore the fact that they are carting you away to their made for protestors FEMA camp, if your lucky, or shooting you dead. Heck, we don't deal with crooks. Nope...

But crooks sure as hell are dealing with you right now even if you choose to 'ignore it.' Well, you can 'ignore' them up to a point. Till they bust your door down late at night when you are sleeping and haul you away to the gas chambers... Oh, they'll take your family and loved ones too. Ask the Iraqui's, Afghanistani's and South Americans about our politicians/crooks. They'll give you an ear full that you can also choose to ignore...

31 Aug 2009 @ 23:54 by a-d : Ignoring in the sense of
"...not playing the game at all..." "ignoring" .... instead of actively looking them up, in order to going after them...chase them etc... I think ANY way to make a point (whether just via Universe ="ignoring them" ) or via our socio-political means can be used and maybe really needs to be used...But one thing is for sure: One has to be informed about the shit!... and I am! :) and no, I will never bow down to them!... They have absolutely no authority over me!THAT I will make clear --in one way or the other!!!...  


1 Sep 2009 @ 17:52 by vaxen : As long...
as you know what you are doing and educate yourself to the fact that all their so called 'law' is only color of law then when they bust you you can say: I am a sovereign political power holder. Why are you detaining me!? This puts them on notice that you know your rights. Rights do not flow from the Constitution for the United States of America or any manmade statutes and ordinances.

Rights are a fundamental part of being human. It is not we the people who started this war. The NEW WORLD ORDER plans on enslaving everyone except for their own. You might blindly stand aside thinking this won't happen but it has already happened. Some people are waking up but most seem to be caught up in endless apathy refusing to believe they've been enslaved by an unjust financial system.

It won't go away by itself...and will only get worse. Being aware of it is the first step...there are many ways within which to level the field. Choosing to ignore it won't do it. Leaving the system is one way, though. But the problem is that at this point that is very difficult for that makes you suspect thus vulnerable to it's machinations.

But thanks for sharing your thoughts on thse matters A-d and mortimer. very much appreciated...  



2 Sep 2009 @ 19:30 by a-d : ...in the same Spirit;.....
hence a "Must-Read-Thingi"...heheh

ENJOY!

Perhaps the greatest of school's illusions is that the institution was launched by a group of kindly men and women who wanted to help the children of ordinary families—to level the playing field, so to speak.

3 Sep 2009 @ 01:15 by vaxen : The secret...
The secret of commerce, that kids drive purchases, meant that schools had to become psychological laboratories where training in consumerism was the central pursuit...

[link]  



11 Sep 2009 @ 10:45 by vaxen : PS:
And thanks for the link, A-d, you're right...of course. Of course jazzolog might have something to say if he were not in the process of 'educating (dumbing down) the children.'  


12 Sep 2009 @ 15:05 by a-d : This is a very real
very wellknown psychological FACT: when people are (kept/forced tp be ) BORED (then all ) they WANT to do is go SHOPPING! yesss.... so, of course kids has to be dumded down /kept as bored and (at the same time) "Straight-jacketted" (/ "tied" to the school benches ) so when they finally are let loose again they head straight to the Mall!

Here, of course would be the more NATURAL way of doing business IF these crooks REALLY were in to LIFE business (which they on the other hand are too dumb to even grasp as a viable option for themselves!.... ALL they needed to do is LIVE & LET LIVE and handle only their own lives instead of everybody else's !.... stupids!....) It is called : "Learn As You Go" --and what could be more intelligent than just that????!?!?!??!?......

great article, great concept!  



13 Sep 2009 @ 05:25 by vaxen : Thanks A-d...
for another great link. I put it out there on twitter... And look what I found on Sosbi's Barbara Hartwell! [link]  


21 Sep 2009 @ 17:50 by a-d : Wioooowww.... Ooooops!....
ayayayayayayay! .... one can only wonder!..... or ask you -know-who!...hehehehhe just kiddin' *!*  


21 Sep 2009 @ 21:33 by a-d : Look what I just found! : )
...if these young women can do it, then so can the rest of the World's Civilian Population the so called The Masses: STAND UP AND SAY NO to ANY CRIMINAL/"Mafia FAMILY/TRIBE"!..."political --"religious" or "Ethnic" doesn't matter!...CRIMINAL is the FACTOR here: EVIL ACTIONS, Double Standard behaviour, Thievery, MEGALOMANIA, allowing these crooks to believe that some pigs are more equal!.... we'll show them how equal!... and give back ONLY their own MEDICINE= the way they have treated anybody who didn't do their bidding!.... Time to turn the Tables! CREATE AS MUCH NOISE AS POSSIBLE!!! SPREAD THE WORD, PLEAAAAAASE!...If these young Gal in Cicily can do it...then hell.... why can't the rest of world's people, who (at least SAY) they want to live their lives in Peace and Harmony, celebrating life. START with refusing to give in to intimidation!

22 Sep 2009 @ 18:35 by vaxen : Thanks A-d...
Yes, I had read about these courageous people. You may know of our countries deep involvement with La Cosa Nostra via CIA ties with that insideous organization. So glad to see this and hope they make it... but the Nostra's Pizzo goes deep into the ass of the Pope and the Vatican. Hope we can keep posted on this. Viva D'Oro!  


23 Sep 2009 @ 03:12 by a-d : Yeaahhhh...all these ....
Family Mafias!.... Italian, Irish, Russian, Jewish, American, Polish etc etc go deep into some ass of SOME "Pope" --or even The Pope....!....huh?.... I envision though, these Gals as tremendously successful! I see them bringing forth to Humanity the incentive, coupled with the courage Humanity needs in order to stop licking the boots of the Popes but asking for ACCOUNTABILITY instead on EVERY STEP of the Way from these Psychos!... meaning their very daily behavior and EVERY ACTION, every deed for every single day need to be scrutinized/questioned, leaving "NO Stone Unturned", demanding their head on the Silver Platter if We, the People, find them appalling in ANY way or fashion to ANY of us, including any part of Nature!!... HURRAHHHH for Gal-Powa! Yeaahhh!... : )
