A Dream Unfulfilled.

Posted on 28 August 2013 by Thraxxus

alincolnThe Emancipation Proclamation was signed by Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the Unites States of America, on January 1, 1863. The purpose of the document was to state that all remaining slaves in the United States of America were considered freemen. “The Proclamation did not compensate the owners, did not itself outlaw slavery, and did not make the ex-slaves (called freedmen) citizens. It made the eradication of slavery an explicit war goal, in addition to the goal of reuniting the Union.“(Wikapedia) This Proclamation was not well received by the ten states in the country that at that time still held that slavery was their right. Clearly matters of opinion varied greatly –¬†with the lives of 4 million transplanted Africans, and their decendents, being at stake.

The End of the Civil War brought about the end of slavery within the United States of America, continuing on to today. This event, the freeing of slaves through war, is considered by many to be one of the greatest conflicts of sacrifice in the country’s history. It is believed by many to have been a success, the act of sacrifice, so that all people in the nation can truly be free and equal, as the Declaration of Independence stated:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

The question remains, however, are we, the citizens of the United States of America, truly free and equal within our own nation? Today marks the anniversary of the greatest meeting of the equality movement in the USA as well as the famed speech given by Martin Luthor King Jr. In that speech King declares the following:

“Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today,
signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great
beacon of hope to millions of slaves, who had been seared in the flames of
withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their
captivity. But one hundred years later, the colored America is still not free.
One hundred years later, the life of the colored American is still sadly
crippled by the manacle of segregation and the chains of
discrimination.

One hundred years later, the colored American lives on a
lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity.
One hundred years later, the colored American is still languishing in the
corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land So we
have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.”

Has anything changed since Dr. King’s speech? Some argue yes. They point to the fact that Barack Obama, a man of mixed race, Caucasian and Black, has risen to the highest station in the country – President. This alone is heralded by many as proof that the country has truly changed. However, we still need to answer the question: Are we all free and equal?

To answer this question we must first consider the following points:

  1. There remains a great divide in pay levels in the USA between men and women, black and white, young and old.
  2. The military still splits out duties between gender. (They are working on changing this.)
  3. Heterosexuals and Homesexuals still have different rights.
  4. Islamist extremists are called terrorists, Christian Extremists are called confused.
  5. Medical insurance is now required for all members of society, except for Congress, the Senate and the President, whom all are granted a higher level of medical insurance for life – for free.
  6. Tax brackets vary dependent on how much money you made.
  7. Schools, from state to state, do not teach the same material.
  8. State taxes are not equivalent.
  9. The right to bear arms is not executed in the same fashion in each state.
  10. Corporations are still supplied exemptions from rules of law that apply to citizens.

Simply put, are we free and equal? How can we say that we are with that list? A list that is not complete of examples. How can we sincerely state that we have created a nation of freedom, liberty and equality when we don’t have every one of those attributes for all of our citizens? Aren’t we, on some level, being dishonest with ourselves and even hypocritical? “We are all free and equal, except those people!” How is that right? How is that fair? How is that what this nation was founded on – the principles we say that we all hold so dear.

Dr. King, wherever you are, the struggle goes on. Abraham Lincoln lead us through the first fight, you lead us through the second and for that we are forever grateful to the two of you. However, we have let you down. We have failed you. We have not fulfilled your wonderous dream. All Men and Women, regardless of ethnic background, color, language, or sexuality are not considered equal – saying anything otherwise is being dishonest, or worse, blind to the truth.

Dude, Where’s my Gold?

Posted on 26 August 2013 by Thraxxus

goldThere has been a crap load of speculation on what is going on, and isn’t going on, in the USA and outside the USA that the USA may be involved in. We have all read about the coming apocalypse, random satanism stories, the Bilderburgs, Illuminati, etc. The catch is, where is the proof? We debate these stories, we throw information on the wall, and we conclude lots of different accounts to be nothing more than Conspiracy Theories. Tragically, without real facts, many of these stories are easy to dismiss as Conspiracy Theories simply because the facts, the cold hard ones, just aren’t there.

Then we have Mr. Snowden. Snowden is the government contractor who fled the country and broke the news that NSA is spying on basically everyone – a story that, until Mr. Snowden, was considered a Conspiracy Theory for years, and yet here we are, with facts, showing that the NSA is doing just that – the catch? The NSA is spying not just on other countries but on its own citizens. Given this concept how about we approach what is going on with actual facts – without drawing any conclusions – and you can be the judge.

  1. Germany recently asked the Federal Reserve for all their gold back – The FED told Germany “No. But you can have it back in 7 years.” If the gold belongs to Germany, why can’t they have it back?
  2. Germany then asked to see their gold – so much of it being stored in the Fed that it takes up nine rooms – They were “No. But you can see one of the rooms.” If the Fed has all their gold, then why can’t Germany inspect it all? Also Germany was told they can look into the room, but that can’t walk into the room.
  3. China is buying an amazing amount of gold.
  4. China is toying with puting the Yuen on the Gold Standard.

What does all this mean?

  1. The USA Dollar is a Fiat Currency.¬† “The term fiat money is used to mean: *any money declared by a government to be legal tender. *state-issued money which is neither legally convertible to any other thing, nor fixed in value in terms of any objective standard. *money without intrinsic value.” In other words, the USA currency is backed by nothing. Now to be fair, neither is anyone else’s currency, unless of course China changes the game.
  2. If currency being backed by gold makes a comeback, is the USA in a position to be able to do the same? According to an article from 1981, Fort Knox is basically empty. This link quotes that article.
  3. According to the FED, they don’t own any gold. Not according to them.

So if the FED has no gold that they own, and Fort Knox has no real amount of gold the question is left to be begged: Where is all the gold that the USA used to have?

Scariest thing said about the gold issue was supplied by CNBC:

“The Bundesbank is, of course, quite right in its opinion of the value of the examinations. In reality, it does not matter one bit whether the Federal Reserve Bank of New York actually has the German central bank’s gold or whether the gold is pure. As long as the Fed says it is there, it is as good as there for all practical purposes to which it might be put. It can be sold, leased out, used as collateral, employed to extinguish liabilities and counted as bank capital just the same whether it exists or not.”

It doesn’t matter if the gold is there? WHAT? In effect this means that the citizens of the Earth should just take the word of the FED, no matter what it is.

No thanks, I prefer the idea of an audit of the Federal Reserve.

Love Potion #9

Posted on 06 August 2013 by ~baba

Love_Potion_Number_9_by_Justin_ZakLast night I went out in a shirt I’d worn all day and had sweated in several hours, it smelled a little funky but not bad really. As I went place to place I noticed that the women I passed by seemed to want to engage me in conversation, buy me a drink, play pool… There was a Don Juan type character a few hundred years ago that used to keep a handkercheif in his armpit and offer it to any lady he wanted to bed. Pheremones. What you smell like when a woman is attracted to you, your pheremones, subtile scents your body puts out that attract the other sex. There is a moth that puts out a pheremone that another moth can smell three miles away and a tomato plant that, when attacked by a tomato worm, produces a pheremone identical to that of a male wasp in heat, attracting female wasps that sting the tomato worm and lay eggs in it, thereby saving the tomato plant. Pheremones. There is a pig pheremone on the market that you can add to your aftershave or cologne or whatever, supposed to get the girls(pobably going to be pigs)to come to you. Something I’ve found, after reading a book ‘Probable’ is that if you increase your probability by being at the place your intended girl is, doing something she’s interested in, looking like someone she wants, whatever you can subtly do to increase your chances of her finding you attractive, she will more likely notice you. If you’re on the hunt you’re already producing pheremones that she will unconsciously detect. Unless you’ve slathered some Axe or whatever crap you insult our noses with every day, in which case no one will want you but the above mentioned pigs. Last year I was eating at a restaurant and a stunning, tall, young girl walked by and I put the ‘bump into her plan’ into action, I finished eating quickly, jumped on my motorcycle and went down a one way street the wrong way to catch up with her. A policeman politely pointed out to me I was breaking the law and I turned around and found a parking place and continued on foot. I soon found her buying a fruit smoothie and paid for it and asked about what she was doing and where she was going. After awhile we went somewhere else to hang out and still today she comes over sometimes to play. I’m dating other girls but she doesn’t care, I helped her with some stuff as a result of our meeting and she’s still grateful and lets me know it. I think the pheremone thing works and helps you if you do the rest, act respectful, be helpful, listen, be a gentleman and let her know you want her without overtly saying it. DON’T TRY TO DRILL HER IMMEDIATELY, take your time, let her get to know you, that’s the love potion.
