"The policy of seeking values from human beings by means of force,
when practiced by an individual, is called crime.
When practiced by a government, it is called statism ..."
-- Nathaniel Branden

Why Aren’t Citizens Mad as Hell About What is Happening to Our Nation? Congress is ruled by one thing – GREED!

Howard Bloom, Yale literature professor and cultural critic, recently stated “I am 79 years old and I have never seen this country in such a bad state. It is madness. What we are seeing is the fall of the Roman Empire, only now it is the fall of America, the glory of our Empire.”

America has more people on welfare than are working full time. Election fraud is rampant. American students continue to fall further behind our international cohorts. The average person cannot even name one thing that the Obama administration has done to improve the condition of the middle class, yet, he got re-elected…

The U.S. economy has had six full years to bounce back since the financial collapse of 2008, and it simply has not happened.  Median household income has declined substantially since then, total household wealth for middle class families is way down, the percentage of the population that is employed is still about where it was

The inhabitants of DC are getting richer than those in the 50 states. In recent years this has increased to a dramatic degree... becoming painfully obvious especially when you consider that DC, unlike San Francisco (and its Silicon Valley) has almost no natural, wealth building industry.

Many of my foreign readers believe Americans are simply chumps who don’t have a clue as to how much their own government is screwing them.  Indeed, one writer told me “Americans are zombies, easily led and fooled  by crooked  or incompetent politicians like Obama– just give them a beer, a joint and football and they become unthinking slaves!”

Here’s our Friday roundup of government follies which could have an adverse affect on your freedoms…

50 Facts That Show How Far America Has Fallen In This Generation

What has happened to America?  Please show these numbers to anyone that does not believe that the United States is in decline.  It is time for all of us to humble ourselves and face the reality of what has happened to our once great nation.  For those of us that love America, it is heartbreaking to watch the foundations of our society rot and decay in thousands of different ways.  The following are 50 facts that show how far America has fallen in this generation, but the truth is that this list could have been far, far longer…


Census: Household Income Continues to Stagnate Under Obama
In what has become a recurring theme in America's long slog back from the 2007-09 recession, most U.S. households again saw no noticeable increase in their income last year.


Pathetic Nonsense

The FBI classifies some sovereign citizens as terrorists. U.S. law enforcement officials are being warned about members of the sovereign citizen movement -- the number one potential terrorist threat in the United States according to a 2014 study by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism(START). Law enforcement agencies estimate that there are about 100,000 hard-core members of various sovereign citizens groups around the country, with another 200,000 sympathizers. West Virginia police


A Federal Appeals court upheld a Florida law that discourages physicians from asking patients if they own guns…reversing a lower court ruling striking down the law because it infringed on doctors’ free speech rights.  The judge said guns are private matter irrelevant to medical care.


Nowhere To Hide As Minority Report-Style Facial Recognition Technology Spreads Across America

What is our society going to look like when our faces are being tracked literally everywhere that we go?  As part of the FBI's new Next Generation Identification System, a facial recognition database known as the Interstate Photo System will have collected 52 million of our faces by the end of 2015.  But that is […]

Have Efforts to Create a "Do Not Track" List Derailed?

The Do Not Track (DNT) list was envisioned as being like the popular Do Not Call list. It would create a central registry for consumers to opt-out of having their online movements tracked with one easy step. This would provide a simple and effective means for consumers to help manage their digital privacy. Unfortunately, after several years of work, the working group tasked with developing DNT has yet to agree on a definition of what 'tracking' is, let alone how to stop it. This inability to reach an agreement leaves consumers without an important means of controlling their digital privacy.... Read it all.


FBI colludes with local police to hide cell phone snooping devices from the public

Local police agencies have been able to gain use of cell phone tracking devices by agreeing with the Federal Bureau of Investigation not to disclose the fact that they’re using them, according to a recently-released, heavily redacted document made public last week. More…  

Poll: Nearly 1 In 4 In America Would Favor Secession

Nearly 1 out of 4 Americans are so fed up with Washington that they’re prepared to not take it anymore – and would favor their state breaking away from the rest of the United States. The sentiment is strongest in the Southwest, but it’s weakest in New England – the birthplace of American rebellion. Read More…


If you are among the thinking, consider:  Sign the Petition to Repeal the Patriot Act

The U.S. Has Fallen Out of Favor…as long as I can recall, we’re always at war!

We have become a militaristic nation. Our troops are stationed all over the planet. We represent 37% of global spending on military, nearly four times the next-closest country on the list — China. Our greatest glories have come from winning a couple of wars; and our greatest humiliations from losing a few. We’ve spent a lifetime invading or bombing countries in Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, Middle East and southeastern Europe.

These actions have left angry masses in the wake. Now the American government lives in fear of retaliation from aboard and they fear financial exodus at home. Thus the government needs to track us to be sure we are still loyal patriots and not disguised bad guys. And, they track our every financial move because they need to make sure they don’t lose a cent of revenue that they desperately need to fund their debt problem.

They are paranoid and afraid. More and more of our data is needed to make the American government feel safe. The need to spy on Americans [using the excuse of protecting our freedom] here and abroad is indicative of a paranoid government in decline.

America is beginning to resemble, physically and operation-wise, like a third world nation.  Even though our infrastructure is crumbling, we waste billions on overseas misadventures and our leaders are too stupid or dishonest to admit it.

Our Washington-Wall Street Cartel is what lies beneath the surface in American politics — the nefarious deals made between corporations and the politicians that are supposed to keep them in check — that makes me think the Third World is where we’re headed as a nation.

I have always thought that under FDR Americans were given a New Deal but under Obama, we’ve been handed a raw deal!


NOTE:  I’ll be undergoing a surgical procedure for my heart this week so there will be no further posts until probably Monday.
