AMERICAS
Venezuela Muzzles Legislature, Moving Closer to One-Man Rule
By NICHOLAS CASEY and PATRICIA TORRES
MARCH 30, 2017

*** begin quote ***

QUITOS, Peru — Venezuela took its strongest step yet toward one-man rule under the leftist President Nicolás Maduro as his loyalists on the Supreme Court seized power from the National Assembly in a ruling late Wednesday night.

*** end quote ***

Here’s a textbook example of how Gooferment goes to dictatorship. Socialism leads to disaster. 

The money is destroyed by the Gooferment policies and the people starve.

We don’t have to go back to the German Weirmar Republic any more.

Just look at Venezuela!

Argh!

“We, The Sheeple” are so stupid. The FED — 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. — is very simply inflating the value of the dollar away. 

Soon the USA will be in the same shape, or worse, as Venezuela. It took a long time — 100 years — but the result is the same!

RANT: The human civilization is dying out

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Coming back from the dentist, I was listening to Dennis Malloy about childlessness and millennials not marrying or having children.

Interesting.

I tweeted the show: 

Ferdinand Reinke‏ @reinkefj:

@DennisandJudi Childness does cost society. Japan? Social Security? IA contra survival trait, eliminates the human race eventually.

By our “education system” and parental guidance / example, we are “eliminating” future generations. Never mind the impact of “free” and encouraged abortions, gay marriage, and heavy Gooferment taxation.

Look at Japan, where their posterity will depopulate the island in the next decades.

Look at Europe, where the “Muslim refugees” have a deliberate strategy of out reproducing the local indigenous population.

Look at the USA’s Social Security Ponzi scheme that absolutely REQUIRES new suckers, I mean taxpaying youngsters, to pay off the oldsters whose wealth has been stolen by the politicians and bureaucrats of the past and present.

So, in essence, it all comes down to humanity breaking the “be fruitful and multiply” commandment.

“If you’re green, you’re growing; brown, dying.”

The human civilization is dying out. Like the dodo, or any other extinct species.

So sad.

HEALTH: Science moves from 10K to 15K; some say 21k?

15,000 Steps Is the New 10,000
Patrick Allan
Thursday 1:00pm
Filed to: HEALTH

*** begin quote ***

We’ve all heard the “walk 10,000 steps a day to be healthy” pitch, but new research says that, while 10,000 is better than nothing, it might not quite be enough.

The study, published in the International Journal of Obesity, looked at postal workers in Glasgow, Scotland, including office workers and carriers who primarily deliver mail by foot. Each participant wore an activity tracker and had their body mass index, waist size, blood sugar level, and cholesterol profile measured throughout the study. All of which, of course, are risk factors for heart disease.

Unsurprisingly, those who sat most of the day had higher BMIs, larger waistlines, poor blood sugar control, and less than ideal cholesterol profiles when compared to those who moved around more. In fact, for every hour of sitting during the day beyond five hours, participants had a .2% increased likelihood of developing heart disease in their lifetime based on the researchers’ model.

But those who walked a lot throughout each day were the picture of health. Workers who walked 15,000 steps or more each day (which is roughly seven miles), or were standing upright for seven hours or more, had normal BMIs, average waistlines, and had no features of metabolic syndrome. Overall, their risk of heart disease was very low when compared to those who walked fewer than 15,000 steps, assuming they weren’t already at high risk for hereditary reasons. This research suggests that our current estimate of 10,000 steps per day may be too conservative, and that 15,000 steps is the mark we should be aiming for if we want to stave off life-threatening cardiac conditions.

Argh!

I haven’t gotten to 10k on any kind of consistent basis. Let alone 15 or 21!

Argh!

Argh!

So I guess I have to rethink my commitment to steal back all my social security losses due to their Ponzi theft. By my rough calculation, I probably have to life to 120 to steal it back. 240, if you add in the Time Value Of Money. Argh!

So I better get moving.

GUNS: Personal Defense Plan

Why You Need a Personal-Defense Plan
by Sheriff Jim Wilson – Tuesday, March 14, 2017

*** begin quote ***

A strong personal-defense plan may be all the difference in the world between your saying, “They told me this could happen and I know just what to do about it,” as opposed to, “Good grief! What the hell do I do now?”  Which will it be when the time comes?

*** end quote ***

“In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.”
— Dwight D. Eisenhower

“Fail to plan; plan to fail.”

Have to do this asap.

FINANCIAL: Get a big mortgage BEFORE you retire

Saturday, March 25, 2017
AN EMAIL TO A FRIEND
 
 
*** begin quote ***
 
Please permit me to “pontificate” since I feel strongly about this bit of “whizdom”.
 
The desire to pay off the mortgage before retiring is based (imho) on a false paradigm and a obsolete meme.
 
The false paradigm (perception of reality) is that it’s “safe” not to have a payment in retirement when your earnings are reduced. While it’s not “safe” to have any “bad” debt ever (i.e., Macy’s at 21%; etc.), a mortgage is “good debt” (i.e., your living in an asset that will probably appreciate). Isn’t it safer to have a big chunk of cash, “safely” invested, that you can use when needed?
 
The obsolete meme (framework of thinking) is based on the pre-1940-ish mortgage where the bank could demand payment in full of the whole mortgage at anytime. That’s why depression era folks lost their homes or farms to foreclosure. After the New Deal (I believe) mortgages were not subject to the bank’s demand, so you can never lose the house due to foreclosure — as long as you make the payments.
 
The argument FOR a big long mortgage going into retirement is that you will have the cash, the house, and a very low tax deductible interest rate (i.e., 4%).
 
The argument for doing it BEFORE you retire is that you CAN NOT do it after you retire. So if you were to need money, then you’ll have to sell the house to get the cash or take a Home Equity Loan at a higher and variable interest rate.
 
I invite you to talk to my “finance guy” to get the scoop. He loves to chat with all my friends and relatives who are all broke and don’t have two nickels to rub together. Laugh! The Edelman Group’s philosophy is they to help everyone get rich.
 
Now I don’t have to rant next time I see you. 
 
Laugh!

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Social Security IS now a Ponzi scheme (and it always was)

Friday, March 24, 2017

2017-Mar-23

AN EMAIL FROM MY LUDDITE “OLD” FRIEND

*** begin quote ***

Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared
“Social Security ” to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats. Here’s a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana …

I think she is a little ticked off! She also tells it like it is!…….

*** end quote ***

I’D AGREE BECAUSE I’M <past tense synonym for urine output> off too!

*** begin quote ***

“Hey …Alan, let’s get a few things straight!!!

1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for FIFTY YEARS.

2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).

3. My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud.

4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and “your ilk” pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age 67. NOW, you and your “shill commission” are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.

5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now “you morons” propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because “you idiots” mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.

6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you “incompetent bastards” spent our money so
profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.

To add insult to injury, you label us “greedy” for calling “bullshit” to your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU:

1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?

2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?

3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?

It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the “greedy” ones. It is you and your fellow nutcase thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.

And for what? Votes and your job and retirement security at our expense, you lunk-headed, leech. That’s right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic, political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it. And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch.

P.S. And stop calling Social Security benefits “entitlements”. WHAT AN INSULT!!!!

I have been paying in to the SS system for 45 years “It’s my money” – give it back to me the way the system was designed and stop patting yourself on the back like you are being generous by doling out these monthly checks .

*** end quote ***

You were robbed. And, the politicians and bureaucrats escaped scott free. 

So sad that “We, The Sheeple” don’t recognize it.

If an insurance exec did it, they’d be in jail.

Argh!

GOVERNACIDE: SEVENTY people would have died by following the FDA’s diktats

Right to Try Act: Doctor Saves Lives by Ignoring FDA Restrictions
Tenth Amendment Center

*** begin quote ***

When the FDA told a Texas Doctor to stop treating terminal patients, he continued under the Right To Try Act. Instead of death they now have hope for life.

*** end quote ***

This is why the FDA MUST be made an “advisory only” function.

More than SEVENTY people would have died by following the FDA’s diktats. For something that’s been in use in Europe for 15 years?

That’s murder by Gooferment!

Argh!

I am a proud supporter of the Tenth Amendment Center
