What’s Going On Re Syria!?

This is a partial repost from www.SoverignMan.com

As everyone is now completely distracted with the looming prospect of yet another illegal war to be waged by the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize recipient, let’s look at a few other things going on while no one is looking.

Gun control

Today, the Obama administration announced fresh measures to restrict the availability of firearms in the Land of the Free.

This time around, they want to ban the re-importation of firearms that have been exported from the US to allied nations. They also want to raise the bar on federal background checks.

But rather than go through Congress, the Obama administration is simply going to create a new ‘rule’.

‘Rules’ are a type of regulation created directly by agencies within the Executive Branch. They’re not laws, but they carry the same weight and effect as laws, complete with criminal and civil penalties.

Oftentimes, hundreds of new rules are proposed every single day in the Land of the Free. It’s the easiest way for the President to circumvent the Constitution and simply decree whatever he wants.

Debt ceiling

The US government is once again danger close to defaulting.

Bear in mind, at the start of the ‘credit crisis’ six years ago, US federal debt was just $8.9 trillion. Today, US federal debt stands at $16.738 trillion– 88% higher.

Curiously, the statutory debt limit is $16.699 trillion… so the US government already breached its limit 39 billion dollars ago.

For the last few months, the Treasury Department has been resorting to ‘extraordinary measures’ in order to avoid default (i.e. things that you and I would go to jail for).

But Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is about out of bullets. So the US could be in danger of defaulting at any moment, especially if an unexpected fiscal ‘surprise’ should arise… like, uh, war.

That’s the funny thing about war– they tend to be expensive. And starting another war might very well be the straw that broke the camel’s back.

No inflation to see here

As I write this letter, fast food workers across the US are protesting, demanding higher wages. Crazy. Apparently you can’t live on $7.25/hour anymore.

Someone needs to tell these people that there’s no inflation, and that the Grand Wizard himself, Ben Bernanke, has everything under control.

Outright Collapse in many Emerging Markets

From India to Mexico, South Africa to Indonesia, emerging market currencies have practically been in freefall in the latest sign that the fiat experiment is drawing to a rapid close.

….

Then again this has been the steady pace of the world for DECADES… How long will it take? If you don’t have a plan here is what I have found! http://eisbrener.info/blog/found-it-3-ways-2-participate/

A Country Founded by Geniuses

This is “Food For Thought” By Junius P. Long

What if BOTH sides have lost sight of the objective?

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally …you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion … You might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If the only school curriculum allowed to explain how we got here is evolution, but the government stops a $15 million construction project to keep a rare spider from evolving to extinction … You might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book, but not to vote who runs the government … You might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines

What happens when all minds are closed?

with more than ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets & 200 Abrams Tanks to the crazy new leaders, “Muslim Brotherhood” in Egypt … You might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat … You might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched … You might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more …you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher’s “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable … You might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

A nice sentiment BUT it ignores the art compromise.

If children are forcibly removed from parents who discipline them with spankings while children of addicts are left in filth and drug infested “homes”… You might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing and free cell phones … You might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to incentivize NOT working with 99 weeks of unemployment checks and no requirement to prove they applied but can’t find work … You might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government … You might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

The Leadership Con Began In Kindergarten!

The attributes of leadership is a story after the event.  What are the actions and the skills required for leadership to be present in ALL of us.  We are trained and infected by ‘schooling’ to believe there is one leader… maybe two…AND it is not me!  All of us must become leaders, without having to be in charge, without the stripes on our arms, without the star on our lapel or a title that we grant ‘leader’ and authority.   Imagine 1000 ‘leaders’ assembled in one place.  What could that accomplish?  The mass media promotes and feeds followers, slaves of convention and a schooling that taught us all how to do what we were told no matter how silly or worthless. The lessons were not to think but to shut up, sit down and be quiet until called on.  Changing that mental virus is essential or the continuing examples of one leader with thousands of followers will go on producing the same kind of results.   Armies meeting on battlefields where we ascribe ‘glory’ to one person’s behavior is not leadership but folly

Give yourself an hour. My rant continues with The Perfect Plan.  You’ve been conned.
