Ron Paul: The Do-Something Congress

Ron Paul: The Do-Something Congress

It has not been a good week for the Republic.  It took quite a bit of trampling of the Constitution, but the bailout bill passed, as I suspected it would.

The bailout failed the first time it was brought to the House.  Undaunted, the Senate pressed on by attaching the bailout as an amendment to another House passed bill that was pending in the Senate.  The new bailout version had new taxes, so according to the Constitution it should not have originated in the Senate.

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.

AWOL: Absent Without Leadership

Let’s say, for the time it takes you to digest this post, that I believe the hype.  Let’s say I believe Paulson and Bernanke when they say we’re headed to a global economic apocalypse unless we cough up the money.  Let’s say their arguments (which at times yesterday resembled a 13 year old girl whining to her parents about how she would just DIE unless she had the latest Hannah Montana CD, and she has to have it NOW) were accurate.

Fine, then.  Where, exactly, are the two Job Applicants who’ve applied for the 2009-2013 Presidential Term? Continue reading
