Government Healthcare and the Moral High Ground

Here's the FIRST thing that goes under a Public Option

Check out this recently published essay regarding the potential consequences of a public healthcare option.

If we have a public option, and I’m paying for it, it gives me a financial and moral obligation and RIGHT to protect my (the government’s) money.  Therefore, if I’m paying for YOUR healthcare, there are going to be several changes I’m going to expect you to make – because, after all, we’re going to take the moral high ground on this like we do so many other things.

More Freedoms Threatened as Obama Eyes a Cyber Czar

cyber

Excellent blog I ran across, worthy of reposting.  The original is here.

The Censorship of the ‘Net, Coming Soon to an IP near you

First, create the problem by having your thugs attack America. They can attack the physical, like the WTC and the Pentagon on 9/11 or attack cyberspace, creating a need to be saved from those “evildoers.”

Deliberately postpone computer and software anti-virus updates at various US agencies, like the FBI and DHS, so hackers and crackers from China and Israel can play hell with our cyber infrastructure.

Then, have your media shills at CNN and FOX repeat ad nauseam that the problem is coming from Muslim types who are intent on destroying America, because they hate our freedoms or some other BS.

Next, drive your message home, like the thugs did when they put military grade Anthrax into the mail, scaring the hell out of millions and sickening and killing some Americans.

Propose to fix the problem you created by shredding the Bill of Rights and turning America into a quasi-police state.

Get ready to take out the last pure form of unadulterated news available, the Internet.

One more 9/11 on American soil, either a physical attack or one on cyberspace, brought to you by the same homicidal maniacs that pulled off 9/11 and we can say goodbye to the Internet.
We’ll be saved by the “Thought Crime Act,” now sitting on Senator Joe Lieberman’s (Likud Party-Israel) desk. The act will be put forth to save us the same way the liberty shredding Patriot Act saved us from ourselves, by declaring war on Americans.

We all know who’s really behind 9/11 and it wasn’t some aging and feeble Muslim, sitting in a cave in Afghanistan, waiting for his dialysis machine.

Problems at the Carnival

The CSIS report on cyber security has hit the ground running. We have problems, people. Serious, serious problems. Just ask CNN. Every day our national security gets compromised by cyber criminals, foreign intelligence operatives, and who knows who else.

What!?!

Yes, my friends. Woe. Woe! Obama must do something right away, like appoint a Cyber Czar and spend taxpayer money creating a new agency. STAT! It’s an e m e r g e n c y.
The 96-page “Securing Cyberspace for the 44th Presidency” report was made public at the start of the week and offers numerous ideas and recommendations for government officials who are growing more concerned about the possibility of cyberwarfare.

“The United States must treat cybersecurity as one of the most important national security challenges it faces,” according to the report. It adds that the current Bush administration’s Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative “good but not sufficient” and the use of computers as attack tools creates “a strategic issue on par with weapons of mass destruction and global jihad.”

Furthermore, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has not been able to properly secure U.S. government computers from cyber attacks, and should no longer have the responsibility. DHS isn’t suited to handle technology issues, as the agency uses “archaic” methods that cannot keep up with new attacks.

At least five members of Obama’s transition team helped contribute to the report, and his staff is eager to see how they can better protect the United States from cyber attacks.

DHS will likely be strengthened once Obama takes office, but even so, it’s not recommended the agency continue to have the lead in cyber security, as it “is not the agency to lead in a conflict with foreign intelligence agencies or militaries, or even well organized international cyber criminals.”

In an ideal scenario, the new office would combine the Joint Inter-Agency Cyber Task Force and DHS National Center for Cybersecurity while recruiting cyber security experts to help create new levels of defense.

Now, just a small sampling of CSIS board of trustees members include some familiar names like Dick Armitage, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Bill Frist, Henry Kissinger, Brent Scowcroft. This is clearly an arm of the octopus. These people know full well that our government has long since been infiltrated by foreign operatives, aka their friends and colleagues. They know full well that they at best ignored the problem they so shrilly wave their arms about today, now that it has grown massively out of control. They know that DHS, under the dual national Michael Chertoff, never had any intention of protection US national security. This is just Hegelian problem-reaction-solution stuff.

Anyone who seriously wants to help this country can start by weeding out all the dual nationals and foreign operatives who brazenly work to destroy America. And I would suggest that’s not about to happen, unfortunately, much as I would wish otherwise.

By polluting and compromising our national interest, our so called leaders have truly made a mess of the whole world; since no country can operate safely in an environment where other nations’ interests and motives remain hidden and entwined, unless of course they spy. Yes, spying has always existed, but securely lashing the US national interest to Israel’s has resulted in an escalation of security breaches because it destabilizes our position vis a vis the rest of the world. We must be like dealing with Sybil. And this has been going on for years and years, but now, all of a sudden, surprising us no end, practically inconceivable, you are to consider that it is an emergency that our security has been compromised. Yes! No shit! Thanks for the tip! And you can just imagine what sorts of fixes they have in mind, which of course will need to be rammed through as quickly as possible a la the Patriot Act, especially if we suffer some kind of terrorist attack, as has been forecast, and during which the ride will probably not withstand the tremendous spin forces.

Meanwhile, we’re just going to keep going around and around on this carnival ride until somebody down there throws some sand in the gear box or sticks a banana in the exhaust or tackles the operator, or something. God help us.

Zeitgeist: Addendum

For me, Zeitgeist was an eye-opening, awakening movie.  Now the folks who brought you Zeitgeist have released “Zeitgeist: Addendum“.  It’s a powerful documentary which makes many things very clear, and of specific interest lately to Americans – it explains our Monetary System.

From the website:

‘Zeitgeist, The Movie’ and ‘Zeitgeist: Addendum’ were created as Not-for-Profit expressions to communicate what the author felt were highly important social understandings which most humans are generally not aware of. The first film focuses on suppressed historical & modern information about currently dominant social institutions, while also exploring what could be in store for humanity if the power structures at large continue their patterns of self-interest, corruption, and power consolidation.

The second film, Zeitgeist: Addendum, attempts to locate the root causes of this pervasive social corruption, while offering a solution.
This solution is not based not on politics, morality, laws, or any other “establishment” notions of human affairs, but rather on a modern, non-superstitious based understanding of what we are and how we align with nature, to which we are a part. The work advocates a new social system which is updated to present day knowledge, highly influenced by the life long work of Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project.

The movie is embedded below.  Other versions and more information can be found here.

Dr. Paul’s House floor remarks on the bailout

Dr.Paul’s House floor remarks on the bailout

September 29th, 2008 by Matt Hawes

Dr. Paul gave a quick speech on the House floor this morning concerning the bailout.
Due to the nature of the debate today, he didn’t have time to read his full remarks, which were put into the congressional record and are featured below:

The process of this bailout reminds me of a panic-stricken swimmer thrashing in the water only making his situation worse. Even a “bipartisan deal”—whatever that is supposed to mean— will not stop the Congress from thrashing about.

The beneficiaries of the corrupt monetary system of the last three decades are now desperately looking for victims to stick with the bill after they have reaped decades of profit and privilege.

The difficulties in our economy will continue because the Legislative and the Executive branches have not yet begun to address the real problems. The housing bubble’s collapse, as was the Dot Com bubble’s collapse, was predictable and is merely a symptom of the monetary system that brought us to this point.

Indeed, we do face a major crisis but it is much bigger than the freezing up of Wall Street and dealing with worthless assets on the books of major banks. The true crisis is the pending collapse of the fiat dollar system that emerged after the breakdown of the Bretton Woods agreement in 1971. Continue reading

Ed Note:  Mr Barr, you have no choice but to condemn this statement and fire this idiot, or you may as well stay home on election day.  The following is a statement attributed to Mike Ferguson – and Mobius is appalled.  Frankly, I wasn’t too keen on voting for someone who could be so easily duped by Borat into eating ‘tit cheese’.  Bah!
