The big banks have plans to seriously mine their customer’s accounts, and we are not talking about charging half a percent a year here, we are talking about 2 or 3 percent of your account money being siphoned off into their coffers every year for the privilege of you being able to hold an account with them. Of course, any rational person knowing this was coming would withdraw their money and stuff it under a mattress or buy gold, so they are going to be prevented from doing so, by the introduction of the “cashless society”.

This situation is shaping up to be a robbery of “We, The Sheeple”.

Not sure how the average Joe Sixpack can avoid this theft.

INSPIRATIONAL: Peyton Manning — hero or villain

Narratives, Nonsense, and Media-Driven Character Assassination: The Manning Saga Continues
By William L. Anderson
February 22, 2016

*** begin quote ***

Let us step back and look at the big picture. Two weeks ago, Peyton Manning achieved what no one believed was possible just a few months ago. He was badly injured and was benched for backup Brock Osweiler, and most observers had concluded that Manning was finished.

When Manning’s injuries had healed enough for him to return to practice, he took snaps with the scout team, which also is known as a “practice squad” or the “taxi squad.” (These are players who are not on the roster and do not play in games. Their purpose is to help the players on the regular team get ready for games.

Many quarterbacks, and especially future hall-of-famers, would have refused such duty and would have wreaked havoc with the coaching staff. Manning quietly did what was needed, even though such a demotion would have been truly humiliating. However, in the last regular-season game against the San Diego Chargers, Osweiler faltered and Manning came in and led his team to victory.

He then played all the snaps for the two playoff games and the Super Bowl. Manning, who at 39 is the oldest quarterback ever to have won a Super Bowl, was not spectacular and he certainly was not the Peyton Manning of even two years ago, but the Denver Broncos won and that was all that mattered. At least then.

*** end quote ***

I’m not sure I’ve seen or heard enough to convict the man of anything other than some bad commercials.

The “media” certainly doesn’t have as much credibility as he does.

So, until there’s some “evidence”, it’s innocent until PROVEN guilty. 

And, not by some witch hunt in the media.

Although, the National Enquirer did unmask John Edwards and TMZ did the same for Ray Rice and some other woman beaters.

So there is an investigative media out there; it’s just not in the mainstream newspapers or TV.

Argh!

Lawmakers strike political compromise to fix Florida’s death penalty law
Published February 20, 2016  FoxNews.com

“This bill is cloaked in procedure, but soaked in a hateful policy,” Rep. Darryl Rouson, a Democrat, told The Florida Times-Union. “This bill is cloaked in process, but soaked in the cries of innocents and the exonerated.”

*** end quote ***

As a pro-life pro-choice little L libertarian, I am categorically against the “death penalty”.

My reasoning is very very simple. You can NOT correct a “mistake”.

“Perhaps the bleakest fact of all is that the death penalty is imposed not only in a freakish and discriminatory manner, but also in some cases upon defendants who are actually innocent.” -Justice William J. Brennan, Jr., 1994

The execution of a person who can show that he is innocent comes perilously close to simple murder. -Justice Harry Blackmun, Herrera v. Collins, 1993

Sorry, but I don’t condone the Gooferment killing anyone.

If life in prison is too dangerous for the guards, then surely we can create a “Devil’s Island” somewhere?

LEXICON: Precariat?

http://www.backwoodshome.com/blogs/ClaireWolfe/2016/02/15/i-have-learned-a-new-word-precariat/

Claire Wolfe
I have learned a new word: precariat
Monday, February 15th, 2016

*** begin quote ***

So yeah, “precariat” is an apt term for people like me and the growing number who live in the so-called “gig economy.”

Technically, to be in the precariat, you must also be in the proletariat: both insecure and low income. Without capital for building a real business. Selling your labor, piecemeal. Hey, I qualify again!

But what the heck. Life itself is precarious. And though the vast precariat lives on uncertainties, name me anybody who ultimately doesn’t. How many fabulously rich stock-market investors have taken spectacular falls? How many “secure” middle-class people have suddenly been rendered precarious by illness, addiction, divorce, accident, or government interference in their lives?

We are all members of the precariat as long as we’re still breathing.

*** end quote ***

I would think that the “precariat” would be well situated for “tough times”.

Regardless of how much money you have, you have to think “worried”.

Growing up, I was always taught to “live below my means”. Unfortunately, it took me a while to learn that less0m.

RANT: What the hell is “eyewash”?

http://www.thedailysheeple.com/the-cia-has-been-lying-to-its-own-employees-for-decades_022016

THE CIA HAS BEEN LYING TO ITS OWN EMPLOYEES FOR DECADES
FEBRUARY 13, 2016 | THE ANTI-MEDIA

*** begin quote ***

The Post says that references to eyewash date back to the 19th century in books on spying, as well as more recent Hollywood movies such as Argo. One official who has seen the Senate report said, “The people in the outer levels who didn’t have insider access were being lied to. They were being intentionally deceived.”

Five former “high-ranking CIA officials” said they have never heard of eyewash nor had they seen it used in internal communications. Fred Hitz, a former CIA inspector general, told the Post that someone might make a decision based on false information and said the tactic was equivalent to “playing with fire.” Other officials interview by the Post said the program has a significant potential for abuse.

Another government official who claims to have seen the practice said that in his career of more than two decades he had “only seen maybe five or six” eyewash cables. So far, the CIA has refused to comment on the Washington Post story.

Federal laws exist which make it illegal for a government employee to lie or falsify statements in an official record. Somehow, the CIA has managed to become so far above the law that they are able to lie to their own employees and compartmentalize it in such a fashion that the left hand never knows what the right hand is doing.

*** end quote ***

You can trust the Gooferment about as you can trust that a politician is “honest”.

The fact that the CIA lies to its employees is only obscured by the fact that they, and the rest of the Gooferment, lies to the people, the taxpayers, and the world!

How Republics Perish
By Patrick J. Buchanan
February 12, 2016

*** begin quote ***

“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded,” wrote James Madison, “No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”

Perhaps Madison was wrong.

Otherwise, with no end to war on America’s horizon, the prospect of this free republic enduring is, well, doubtful.

*** end quote ***

The last Presidential candidate who was a “peace candidate” was Ron Paul. He was thrown out of the race by being accused of isolationism, pacifism, and essential being “crazy”. BHO44 became the “new” “peace candidate”; even going so far to get a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING. Then, immediately staring the pot and creating more wars. Argh!

So, who turns this around and how does it get done?

Sad to say, the only one with any semblance of a “peace bone” in their body — now that Rand Paul is gone — is Donald Trump. At least at one point, he said “leave the Ukraine to Putin” and let the “Muslims fight it out without us”. While not the “Let’s bring all the girls and boys home now!” of Ron Paul, I’ll take any shred of peace that I can get. And, the Donald has said things that make me think he’s not as “crazy” about war as the main stream media would like us to believe.

I can’t vote for a socialist or a uncovicted felon. So we have to see what choices we have.

I remember the line by in “Master and Commander” when Captain Jack Aubrey (Russel Crowe) says: “There, I have you! You’re completely dished! Do you not know that in the service … … [pauses] … … one must always choose the lesser of two weevils.”

INTERNET: The inet exposed the mainstream media as “propaganda organs” of the elite

Willie Nelson Comes to Jocotepec: The Internet and Social Fragmentation
By Fred Reed
February 12, 2016

*** begin quote ***

The aggregate effect was a manufactured unanimity or the appearance of one. In the post-war prosperity, Americans bought washing machines and tract houses and were content. Television was wholesome, sterile, and not very informative. Superman jumped out of window to promote truth, justice, and the American way, then thought to be related.

Came the internet. Fairly suddenly, every point of view became available to everybody: The KKK, the Black Panthers, communists, fascists, feminists, loon left and loon right, the-earth-is-flatters. The social media and comment sections allowed lateral communication with a vengeance.

A consequence was that the major media became known for what they were, propaganda organs of those who ran the country. Stories that the fossil media would have liked to ignore flew instantly to hundreds of thousands of inboxes, appeared on countless blogs and websites—often with cell-cam video.

*** end quote ***

I think this is an astute observation. That and the aspect of “lateral communication”.

“Lateral thinking” has been around for awhile and helps one “see” missed choices and find missed solutions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lateral_thinking

The Free State Project https://freestateproject.org/about/101-reasons-move-new-hampshire would have been virtually impossible without the inet.

In my own profession of computer engineering, the inet has exposed that most large corporations have NO disaster recovery. Sure they can put files in the cloud, but can they restart their business after a data center is wiped out. Timing is everything. But the leadership wants to play “ostrich” and waste money believing their IT executives. Interesting that this big bluff has yet to be “called” yet.

What else has the inet silently revolutionized without being realized?

The Phoenix Program in Vietnam in many ways provides a blue print for our own times. Assassinations and torture are the essence of the war on terror. As are death squads and false flag terror attacks. As are mass surveillance of the populace.

Thanks to the work of Douglas Valentine in his classic book “The Phoenix Program” we have an extremely detailed account of the Phoenix Program exposing a classic example of the brutality of the CIA’s counter insurgency wars. By studying the Phoenix program one can gain a great deal of insight into the wars in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq.

Europeans, not Americans, Should Spend More on Europe’s Defense
By DOUG BANDOW 

*** begin quote ***

The U.S. plans on filling Eastern Europe with thousands of troops along with vehicles and weapons to equip an armored combat brigade. That will require a special budget request of $3.4 billion for next year.

An unnamed administration official told the New York Times, that the step “fulfills promises we’ve made to NATO” and “also shows our commitment and resolve.” Moreover, said another anonymous aide: “This reflects a new situation, where Russia has become a more difficult actor.”

However, the basic question remains unanswered: Why is the U.S. defending Europe? The need for America to play an overwhelming role disappeared as the continent recovered and the Cold War ended.

*** end quote ***

Clearly, this should be a top priority of any new President. “We, The Sheeple” should not be paying for Europe’s, Japan’s, South Korea’s, or anyone else’s!

Stolen Lives, Protected Criminals: The Wrongful Imprisonment of Christopher Tapp
By William Norman Grigg
Pro Libertate Blog
February 6, 2016

*** begin quote ***

There are abundant reasons to be grateful that we do not live under the Old Testament “lex talonis” legal covenant, and one compelling reason to lament that this is so: Under the system of justice described in the Book of Deuteronomy, a lying police officer and corrupt prosecutor who falsely convicted an innocent man would be required to suffer the punishment intended for their victim.

Under that legal principle, former Idaho Falls Police Detective Jared Fuhriman and former Bonneville County District Attorney Kip Manwaring would be serving a sentence of 30 years to life for the wrongful murder conviction of Christopher Conley Tapp.

*** end quote ***

Well, not only do we need to call the politicians and bureaucrats to “fix” the concept of “sovereign immunity” that protects the police and prosecutors from their abuses. Some of the stuff that gets reported is absolutely inexcusable. We’re not talking about a minor mistake or flub; these stories document prosecutorial or police criminal abuse.

Also, the courts need to be open to ANY appeal that could prove one’s innocence. I don’t care if it was evidence available at the time of trial, new DNA capabilities, or ineffective counsel / abusive prosecutorial conduct. The door should be always OPEN for proof of innocence. If I was President, I’d take these cases under advisement. 

Better a hundred guilty go free, than one innocent is in jail.

Just think, the unlucky stiff in jail could be YOU!

Maybe it’s better that the folks on this modern day Titanic don’t consider what happens when they hit one of the many “icebergs” in their path — the debt, the deficit, the current 20T+ national debt and the guesstimated 300T+ in unfunded liabilities that our posterity will have to deal with, the abortion genocide, and unstable world political arrangement.

No, keep your eye on the football, citizen, since that is ALL that really matters.

Argh!

RANT: Is this one of the “few enumerated powers”?

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/02/06/california-based-beauty-school-to-close-all-55-campuses.html?intcmp=hplnws

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. –  A Beverly Hills-based beauty school says it’s closing all 56 of its campuses in five states after losing federal funding over allegations of misconduct.

Marinello Schools of Beauty has been in business for over a century. It shut facilities this week in California, Nevada, Utah, Kansas and Connecticut.

My question is why is the Federal Gooferment involved in “student loans”?

Where in the Constitution is this one of the “few enumerated powers”?

It may be a State regulatory concern — are the students being defrauded — but why is the Federal Gooferment doing anything?

Argh!
