A Failsafe in a World of Falling Safes | TAPinto

Wednesday, May 1, 2019

When Farina tells her story, her eyes always tear at the word “foreclosure.” Her Orange home had four-bedrooms and was beautifully furnished but when the bank foreclosed after just a few months of her struggles, “I ended up giving almost everything away,” she said.

She remains hurt and confused about the quick foreclosure, but “I didn’t have anybody there to fight for me or show me the way.

”She was a victim of the predatory real estate shuffle in urban areas that got more than a few banks in hot water with the government, but she ended up with nothing but the satisfaction that the big lenders were fined. But satisfaction doesn’t pay the rent.

Sure your Gooferment will protect you. Notice that this woman’s banks got off with a fine. Shovel more money into the Gooferment cesspool. Did they give it to her to get back what she lost — obviously not. Private charity is efficient and effective; Gooferment “charity” is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy. It’s a sham. And, it deceives “We, The Sheeple” into thinking that they don’t have to be individually responsible to fund charity because the Gooferment does it.

John Wilkes Booth ‘got away with assassinating Abraham Lincoln by evading capture and living nearly four decades under assumed identities’

  • John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre in April 1865 
  • It is widely believed that he was tracked down and killed days later in Virginia
  • But new facial recognition technology says he may have lived long after 
  • Software analyzed faces of Booth, John St. Helen, and David E. George
  • It found there is a strong likelihood that these three men are the same person

John Wilkes Booth may have gotten away with the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.

New evidence uncovered by facial recognition technology appears to show that Booth lived for decades under an assumed identity after he shot Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. on April 14, 1865.

The conventional historiography holds that Booth was shot dead by Union soldiers five days after the assassination inside a barn on a farm in Virginia.

But an investigator with the Discovery Channel series Mummies Unwrapped says that modern-day face recognition technology shows that Booth’s face matched with that of two other men – John St. Helen and David E. George.

The researchers ran the images of St. Helen, George, and Booth through a computer and found that there was a strong possibility that these three individuals were the same man.

Like all good Conspiracy Theories, it has a “feeling of credibility” about it.  Soldiers collecting a reward for some poor soul; not Booth.  The VP with his hand in it.  Deathbed confessions. 

And, the biggest reason to believe it is a compound reason:  (1) If the VP was in on it (i.e., the password), then the assassin needed to be “caught” and also unable to implicate anyone.  (2) The Gooferment couldn’t stand having the image that it couldn’t catch one lone assassin; people would begin to doubt the power of Big Gooferment. (3) Since it is easily disproved by an exhumation and DNA test, what it the motive for NOT disproving it.

SECESSION: Scotland screwed up

Exclusive: Angry with Washington, 1 in 4 Americans open to secession
By Scott Malone

*** begin quote ***

(Reuters) – The failed Scottish vote to pull out from the United Kingdom stirred secessionist hopes for some in the United States, where almost a quarter of people are open to their states leaving the union, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll found.

Some 23.9 percent of Americans polled from Aug. 23 through Sept. 16 said they strongly supported or tended to support the idea of their state breaking away, while 53.3 percent of the 8,952 respondents strongly opposed or tended to oppose the notion.

The urge to sever ties with Washington cuts across party lines and regions, though Republicans and residents of rural Western states are generally warmer to the idea than Democrats and Northeasterners, according to the poll.

Interesting.

Haven’t seen any analysis of why the vote failed.

Just from casual browsing, the “secessionists” didn’t have a plan or reasonable answers.

For example, just what I read and thought of:

* Money

No one addressed what currency they would use. The secessionists could have just said “free market” (e.g., USD$, Euro, UK pound, gold / silver). Imagine the vigor of the market that would evolve. If they adopted an “honest money”, imagine that they could displace the Swiss as the “store of value”.

* Defense

They could have said we’ll be like the Swiss. MYOB. Not much offensive “defense” needed.

* Debt

They could have offered to take a per capita share of the UK debt with them.

Did I miss anything?

RANT: “Death Panel” thinking

Forget Glee Club and Football – This High School Has a Death Panel!
By Kimberly Paxton
The Daily Sheeple
October 12, 2013

*** begin quote ***

Critics of the public school system will be pleased to know that St. Joseph-Ogden High School in Illinois is preparing kids for the future by teaching them practical skills.

That’s right – 15 and 16 year olds just had an assignment on how to distribute limited medical resources amongst a small sampling of the population. They got to pick who deserves to live and who deserves to die.

The lesson involves 10 people who are in desperate need of kidney dialysis.

*** and ***

“The assignment you are referring to is not a “Death Panel” assignment.  The assignment is one in the sociology unit of our Introduction To Social Studies class.  The purpose of the assignment is to educate students about social values and how people in our society unfortunately create biases based off of professions, race, gender, etc.  The teacher’s goal is to educate students in the fact that these social value biases exist, and that hopefully students will see things from a different perspective after the activity is completed.  The teacher’s purpose in the element of the assignment you are referring to is to get students emotionally involved to participate in the classroom discussion, and to open their minds to the fact that they themselves have their own social biases.  The assignment has nothing to do with a “Death Panel.”

*** end quote ***

Sure, surem sure.

Doesn’t look that way to me.

Implicit in the exercise is that the “student” has a moral imperative to make such decisions.

Or that, in fact, such decisions are made in our society.

Having known an older person undergoing dialysis, the free market, that wonder engine of chaotic order, has no such 6/10 shortage. 

It’s a limitation that doesn’t exist in the real world.

A while ago, more than a decade, I saw a brand new HUGE dialysis center by the airport. Far larger than would be needed by the small number of relatively healthy natives. I was curious so I called them talked to the Director. (Astonishingly he answer his own phone that was publicly listed.) He told me that it was built by the community with support from the hotels FOR TOURISTS who needed dialysis while they were on vacation. They accepted Medicare, all insurances, and cash. The “cash rate” was about a third of what my relative paid in NYC. And the fellow was very apologetic that the “cash price” was so high but all the critical supplies had to be airlifted in due to expiration dates.

I was floored.

So, let’s put “WalMart” in charge of everything. (WalMart is my metaphor for a truly free market.)

Argh!

So hospital with only capacity for 6 could put on a second shift for capacity of 12. Now we just have to figure out how to pay for it. How about a “Bake Sale”? Wanna bet if our society can sell naming rights of stadiums, our second shift’s name can be sold. 

I think “Reinke’s Ranters” has a nice ring to it.
