School Bans Teen From Flying American Flag. Quickly Regrets It.
By Hunter Roosevelt on May 14, 2015

*** begin quote ***

Peyton Robinson, a senior at York Comprehensive High School in South Carolina, was flying an American flag and a POW-MIA flag on the back of his truck – until the school took them off his truck

*** and ***

The community has rallied around Robinson and his flags and staged a demonstation. As many as 70 cars full of students and adults arrived at the school with people waving flags along the street.

*** and ***

Under overwhelming public outcry, the school gave in. An announcement on the school district says:

Due to the outstanding display of patriotism through peaceful demonstration, it is apparent to us that many are not happy about this policy. School officials have reviewed the standing policy regarding flags and have decided that an exception will be made for the American flag, as long as the size of the flag(s) does not create a driving hazard.

*** end quote ***

So now the Gooferment Skrules are the traffic police. How do they determine it creates “a driving hazard”? Ask the drivers ed teacher!

Argh!

Close the Gooferment Skrules. Defund the Department of Education. And, return the education of children to their parents. And, btw, the parents had ‘em, let them pay to educate them.

Bet all those international measures of education for the USA compared to the world get blown off the scales.

There’s a reason that homeschoolers rock!

MONEY: Save the penny; it’s educational

If You Want People To Keep Using Cash, Support Killing The Penny
By Justin Pot on 15th May, 2015 

*** begin quote ***

There’s quote you might have heard.“A penny saved is a penny earned” -Ben Franklin

First: Franklin never said that. Second: adjusting for inflation, an early 1800’s penny is worth about 25 cents today. With these points in mind, I propose the following update: “A quarter saved is a quarter earned” -Unknown

My point is simple: when the penny was worth more, no one saw the need for a piece of currency valued at 1/25th of a penny. Creating something like that would have been stupid, because you couldn’t have bought anything with it.penny-bucketToday, it’s nearly impossible to find anything that costs one cent. Anywhere.Seriously: try to find anything that costs a penny. You’ll have to resort to a single nail at the hardware store, but when you try to pay for it with your penny the clerk will probably tell you not to bother – saying to just take the nail and leave. 

*** end quote ***

I disagree. The penny is an in your face constant reminder that the Gooferment, specifically the FED (i.e., Ferderal Reserve Bank) … …

— The Federal Reserve Bank is a misnomer. IT ain’t “federal”. It reserves nothing. And, it ain’t a “bank”. It is a private cartel of the elite banks run for their benefit and that of the entrenched politicians. —

… … stolen the wealth of the world by inflation. I insist on ranting every time some wants to get rid of the penny, by pointing to Ron Paul and the evils of fiat currency. 

Without the Fed’s fiat currency, WW1 and WW2 could not have been fought and the current welfare / warfare state would be impossible. 

The penny is the “canary in cage” for the national debt, the deficit, the unfunded liabilities, and the out of control spending.

Keep the penny and let’s not forget WHY it’s worthless!

If you doubt any of this rant, listen to the Tom Woods podcast http://tomwoods.com/podcast/ep-397-the-fed-the-lifeblood-of-the-empire/ and how the FED enables war.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Vaccine Excise Taxes?

What Does U.S. Treasury Do with Vaccine Excise Taxes It Collects?
Activist Post
May 13th, 2015

*** begin quote ***

Earlier this year I started to research what’s known as the “Vaccine Injury Trust Fund,” a “stash” of cash collected on every vaccine sold and given to children and adults in the USA.

That Trust Fund is “financed” by a $0.75 excise tax on each vaccine active recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. On multi-valent vaccines, i.e., those containing more than one disease active e.g., trivalent vaccines like MMR, DTaP, etc., then 75 cents is paid for each valent, or a total of $2.25 for a 3-valent vaccine.

Now, here’s an interesting aspect: The U.S. Department of Treasury collects those excise taxes and also manages the Trust Fund’s investments. Investments? Sounds like there should be quite a stash in that Trust Fund portfolio since the U.S. Vaccine court has paid out just over $3 Billion [$3,159,410,649.38] [1] in claims and attorneys’ fees as of June 30, 2015. That got me to wondering what the Vaccine Injury Trust Fund is valued at; where the money is invested; and that there should be an accounting of public record posted on the Internet.

*** and ***

However, this foray into vaccine excise taxes has left me with wondering what the real reason is behind having all adults receive ‘catch-up’ children’s vaccines. Are vaccines more of a hidden money-maker for Uncle Sam than anyone ever suspected? But, how is that money used? Off-budget?

*** and ***

Catherine J Frompovich is a retired natural nutritionist who earned advanced degrees in Nutrition and Holistic Health Sciences, Certification in Orthomolecular Theory and Practice plus Paralegal Studies. Her work has been published in national and airline magazines since the early 1980s. Catherine authored numerous books on health issues along with co-authoring papers and monographs with physicians, nurses, and holistic healthcare professionals. She has been a consumer healthcare researcher 35 years and counting.

*** end quote ***

Cut to the chase, bottom line, obvious to anyone who isn’t blind, it went into the “trough”!

It’s humorous to read what the researcher went thru to find this out.

And, of course, there are conflicts of interests all over the place.

Wonder why there is an “anti-vax-er” movement among “We, The Sheeple”?

Perhaps, it’s not about “health”, “health care”, “health care insurance”, BUT something else?

Crony Capitalism between Big Pharma and the Gooferment? Enriching the politicians and bureaucrats at the expense of the victims.

Argh!

INSPIRATIONAL: Our gut microbes are the key to the obesity epidemic

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-3077507/Everything-think-know-diets-wrong.html

Everything you think you know about diets is WRONG: Counting calories is a total waste of time, it’s bacteria in your gut that make you fat and finally, cheese, alcohol and chocolate can all help

  • Professor Tim Spector, a leading genetics expert, finds compelling evidence as to why calorie-controlled diets don’t work
  • He believes with the right regimen of diet and exercise, we can be happy, healthy – and lean – and keep the pounds off for life
  • Author of new book The Diet Myth: The Real Science Behind What We Eat

Calorie-controlled diets don’t work.

Many of us may have suspected as much for years — but now there’s compelling evidence in a new book by Professor Tim Spector, a leading genetics expert at King’s College London.

What’s more, he’s offering a tantalising new theory about what really makes us fat — which could revolutionise our approach to weight loss.

As one of the scientists leading worldwide research into the trillions of bacteria living in our stomachs, Professor Spector believes they hold an amazing power over our health and moods — and that our modern diet may be having a negative effect on them.

*** end quote ***

I agree about calorie counting. I watched my Aunt struggle with weight. Calorie counting all the way. Yet, her sisters were all “normal”; one was down right thin.

There has to be more to regulating weight than a simplistic input = output equation.

The body is a complex interrelated system that’s evolved over a gazillion years.

Sigh!

No hope for me. Since I’m the one in the family most like her. Some said we looked alike or that I was her kid.

Argh!

Doomed, I say. Doomed.

RANT: Hillary Clinton’s payola

Washington Post: Hillary Clinton was paid millions by tech industry for speeches
By Editor on May 19, 2015

*** begin quote ***

While it is common for former presidents to receive top dollar as paid speakers, Hillary Clinton is unique as a prospective candidate who received large personal payouts from corporations, trade groups and other major interests mere months before launching a White House bid. In some cases, those speeches gave Clinton a chance to begin sounding out themes of her coming campaign and even discuss policy issues that a future Clinton administration might face.

Companies that paid her to speak include industry giants such as Xerox, Cisco Systems and Qualcomm, as well as start-ups and trade groups focused on biotechnology and medical technology.

*** end quote ***

No, no corruption here. Any more than the contributions to the “Clinton Foundation” by foreigners when she was Secretary of State.

Argh!

POLITICAL: Michigan Voters Smash Tax Hike Referendum

Michigan Voters Smash Tax Hike Referendum
By Gary North
The Tea Party Economist
May 12, 2015

*** begin quote ***

Proposal 1 suffered the worst defeat Tuesday of any Michigan ballot measure since the current Constitution was adopted more than a half-century ago, as 80 percent of voters rejected the sales tax increase and road funding plan. . . .

*** and ***

Saginaw County businessman Paul Mitchell set up an opposition group and began lambasting the proposal for directing $700 million to areas unrelated to repairing roads, such as education, cities, public transit and an expanded tax break for the working poor.

Mitchell called the non-road spending a “a $700 million toll to special interests,” defining the issue before the “yes” campaign could respond on the airwaves.

*** end quote ***

Nice to see that the Michigan voters ain’t buying the Michigan Infrastructure & Transportation Association, representing road builders, $5.4 million Safe Roads Yes propaganda.

Pretty good. Put in 5.4 to get 700 back.

With the appropriate payoffs to the politicians and astroturf groups.

No wonder “We, The Sheeple” are bankrupt.

Morally and fiscally.

INSPIRATIONAL: Putin carried a photograph of his father

A Bright, Sunny Day
By Anne Williamson
May 12, 2015

*** begin quote ***

But there are still living veterans, who, like me, saw the Russian president leave the post-parade luncheon for visiting heads of state to plunge into a stream of three hundred thousand Russians marching in memory of “The Immortal Brigade.”  Each participant carried a picture of a family member, who had served in the struggle to defeat the mighty Huns.

A relaxed and upbeat Putin carried a photograph of his father, a submariner. (A U.S. president in similar circumstances would have been accompanied down the stairs and into the square by a crowd of 40 Secret Service thugs, a motorcycle police escort and several detachments of armed marines.)

Maybe it was a publicity stunt, but I don’t think so. Only two body guards were visible, and each kept a close but discreet distance while Putin mingled freely with crowds of ordinary Muscovites.

*** end quote ***

This certain puts a different spin on the evil Putin. (And, I have no doubt the KGB officer in him has much to atone for.)

“The Immortal Brigade”!

“27 million dead” fighting the Nazis.

That’s huge.

And, they should have a parade.

For peace.

Dona Nobis Pacem
