The Dollar is disappearing

JACKASS ALERT # 10

Round and Round the Construction Firm

It is with great sadness that we must now report that there are apparently no qualified America Owned large Construction Engineering Companies in the United States capable of installing a ventilation system in the New York Subway Manhattan area. Due to the unreported demise of these firms, China State Construction Engineering Corp, the largest contractor in China, has been awarded the $100 million dollar contract through it’s subsidiary China Construction America Co .

The company is reported to have signed over 1 Billion dollars in construction projects in the United States this year alone – including the $410 million dollar Hamilton Bridge renovation project which began in July 2009

So let me attempt to understand this.

  • American taxpayers have had the “privilege” through TARP and Stimulus Packages to bailout the Federal Government
  • Who then borrowed on our backs trillions of dollars from China to  then
  • Award contracts to Chinese contracting firms
  • Denying American Engineering firms the opportunity to profit from the American taxpayer sacrifice.

This reminds me of a Chinese Proverb “The crafty rabbit has three different entrances to its lair.”

Unfortunately with the majority of our Industries outsourced, the inability of Republocrats to stand up for American Citizens, and the lack of any true leader in our Nation; it maybe time to learn Mandarin.

I hear Rosetta Stone has a sale going. Up to $125 off and free shipping

At least they are still American owned.

I Faced Hunger Today. Did You?

Leave a comment

 What I want to know is how far above third-world status do you think you are? How long before the price of housing, gasoline, food, clothing, and everything else on earth that the corporations can snap up and offer for sale, goes so high that you simply don’t have enough money left to eat? Maybe you could skip breakfast and lunch. It is easier to go to bed on a full stomach than an empty one. How long are you prepared to do that? Forever? Are you prepared for a completely changed lifestyle that doesn’t include regular meals? If you haven’t asked yourself the following question before now, do it – NOW! ‘How long can I survive a prolonged depression?’ 

 

Just ask the neighbor you have been ignoring for the last year or so how it feels to go hungry. Have you noticed how he’s getting a bit ragged around the edges? He’s lost some weight, don’t you think? And his clothes! They are a bit on the dingy side. And he doesn’t smell so good either. I wonder what is wrong with him. Maybe you should call Social Services…or maybe you are starting to experience a bit of hunger, and after experiencing it for yourself, you start to recognize it in others. 

 

Maybe you should go over to his place and ask if he is okay, and if there is some way you can help. Maybe a pot of chicken soup would stave off the hunger for a day or two. Cook it at home, because his electricity has been turned off for non-payment. Make all you can afford to because he will be hungry. You see, he wakes up in the morning wondering what will happen when the bank forecloses. He has lost his job because the company went bankrupt, yet miraculously turned up in a foreign country where the wages are low and environmental concerns are an oxymoron. Not only has he lost the income from his employment, but his medical insurance went bye-bye with the job, and the retirement? Forget it. History. “In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, a company liquidates its assets to pay its creditors and ceases to exist. Therefore, it is likely your pension and health plans will be terminated” (DOL, 2003).  

 

Ask your neighbor how long he has been going without money. While you’re there, ask him how long it has been since he has eaten. There’s a saying that if you go three minutes without air, three days without water, or three weeks without food, you die. I don’t know how accurate that is, but I don’t want to experience it firsthand, at least not just yet. I have things I still want to do, don’t you? Doesn’t your neighbor? 

 

Now ask yourself how long you could go without money. Remember, the banking system runs the world as we know it. With money, you are in debt to creditors. Without money, you are at the mercy of those same creditors. What do you do when you can no longer fulfill your obligations to these creditors? You are at their mercy, and they have no mercy. So, treat them like the foul carrion-eaters they are; get rid of them, and don’t invite them back. Do it now. The longer you are in their clutches, the harder it becomes to stay afloat. When you have no money, you are at the mercy of those who have no mercy, be it the creditors or everything and everyone else around you.  

 

Your house, car, electricity, water, Internet, phone, fax, food, household cleaning products, personal hygiene products, clothing, and everything else that we Americans are all used to, cost money. Without money, you go without all of the essentials you once thought you needed. Ask that neighbor about his priorities. Ask him what the first thing was that he gave up when the money was not there. What was the second thing to go? How about the third or fourth? Ask your starving neighbor how he handled the slide into oblivion. Ask him how it feels to wake up in the morning hungrier than when he went to sleep the night before. Better yet, wait until he is homeless, then ask him how it feels to have lost everything he owned while his neighbors hid behind locked doors, the Social Services button on speed-dial. Get a good, clear picture of that phone on your nightstand with the speed-dial button looking a little worse for the wear. 

 

Angry? Good. Got a clear picture of your enemy? Good. So, just who or what is this enemy? Do you know? Anger has to be directed somewhere. Can we direct it at the corrupt system we are living in? Sure, and the power elite that have the upper hand in this corrupt system, because they created it. They know what is happening, they planned it! But they cannot control all events at all times. Perfect they are not, just look at the players. But it is true that they have very smart people working for them who figure out what to do next so they don’t have to do any of the real mental work themselves. After all, money can buy almost anything.

  

The people controlling the present-day economic meltdown are very formidable, but these vipers are not your personal enemy, and their plan to control the world’s population via economic chaos, along with the reckless worldwide corruption of food, water, and natural resources by their multinational corporations, will eventually backfire on them because no man can think to control everything without some very serious results. These so-called ‘elite’ vipers cannot escape the consequences of their actions no matter how much money they use to make things ‘disappear.’ When all is said and done, all they are left with is moral bankruptcy, nothing more. 

 

Meanwhile, you have to survive this nightmare you are being thrown into against your will. To do that, you must know who your real enemy is. The enemy is not your neighbor who is trying to survive just like you. This enemy is much more personal than the crooks in the White House and their masters.  

 

When all is lost, the enemy you face is staring at you from a reflection in the bathroom mirror. Get used to it. 

 

Now that you have defined the true enemy, the real question becomes, just what will you be left with when all is said and done and the economy collapses in a heap right in front of you? Where do you go, how do you get there, and most of all, how do you convince the enemy in the mirror that there is something to live for? 

 

Aaron Tippin sings,

  

You’ve got to stand for something
or you’ll fall for anything.

You’ve got to be your own man,
not a puppet on a string.

Never compromise what’s right,
and uphold your family name.

You’ve got to stand for something
or you’ll fall for anything.

  

Think you can’t go on? You can. Think of the rest of your life as one of the biggest endurance tests you will ever experience, and walk into it, one step at a time.  

 

Conquer your fears and fight back with the only weapons of any worth: righteousness and truth. Stand for something worthwhile. If you’ve got something extra that your neighbor might need, give it to him. Don’t be afraid to receive help either. Get rid of the urge to call someone to “get rid of the problem” for you, and get involved in a solution. Make it personal because starvation is very personal. We can’t make it on our own, that’s not who we are. We need each other to survive, and the only way to find people that you want to be with, is to be one of those people with whom you want to be.  Now is not the time to throw away all principle and resort to King of the Jungle mentality. Now is the time to let your inner strength show. Grab hold with both fists and refuse to be reduced to chattel.  

 

After all, there’s a saying that if you go three minutes without air, three days without water, or three weeks without food, you die. And that’s the bottom line, isn’t it. Do you want to die with your hands around your neighbor’s throat, or with your hands underneath your brother, holding him up? It’s your choice, and the most important one you will ever make. Choose wisely. This decision might be the last one you make in the next three minutes, three days, or three weeks.

Media Silence on Events in Canada

Leave a comment

One of the major reasons I began this website is the lack of reporting of substance by what is supposed to be our national and even local news.  For three years I have published my own email gazette trying to expose issues that never see the light of day no matter how much cable or Dish TV you purchase.  What I find appalling is the substitution of celebrity and non-news, rather than actual informative journalism.

A case in point is news from Canada.  Unkown to a majority of Americans, Canadians are waging their own battle against the New World Order, the Security & Prosperity Partnership, the NAFTA highway, the North American Union and the outsourcing of vital contracts related to infrastructure and data mining.

In protest over the outsourcing of census taking to Lockheed/Martin, Canadians by the hundreds of thousands have refused to comply and submit information to L&M.  About 63 are being agressively pusued and prosecuted for refusing to provide L&M with information, saying that this particular company is part of the American War Machine and citing the fact that the census was more than adequately handled by the government prior to this.

We will be posting regular updates to this situation.  In the meantime……

If you are one of those who are being prosecuted by the government in connection to refusing to participate in the census in Canada, please either send an email to:

State of the Union: The Bush Treason

Leave a comment

Frosty Wooldridge
February 5, 2008

Last week, President Bush gave Congress his last State of the Union speech. Proving that the presidency erodes a man–he looked worn, haggard, colorless and beaten. His words rang vacant, hollow and scratched like fingernails across the chalkboard of Americans’ sense of honesty.

In truth, he looked every bit the part of a new book: “The Bush Tragedy” by Jacob Weisberg. Newsweek reported, “As Bush’s presidency nears its end, prospects for the Republicans look bleak…GOP candidates running in the wake of his wreckage can learn much from his failures…he squandered the peoples’ trust.”

On January 20, 2001, he raised his right hand and placed his left hand on the Holy Bible, “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” (Article 2, section 1) He repeated the same ceremony for a second time.

Concerning the basics of our U.S. Constitution: he lied to us, he violated his oath of office and created a boondoggle of a legacy as he mounted $3 trillion onto our national debt. He oversaw the loss of millions of jobs, accelerating trade deficits and foisted a complete fraud on us as to national security from terrorism with his failure to secure our borders.

What about how he affected American families? What did he do to us on a personal level? What didn’t he do to preserve, protect and enhance our lives?

I’ll tell you how! Last week, in Denver, Colorado, 21 year old U.S. Army soldier Duncan Crookston died after five months of misery. He suffered both legs blown off, his right arm amputated and his left hand cut from his body. He suffered horrific burns. His young wife sat by his bedside for five months only to see Crookston’s life slip away.

That same sickening scenario repeated itself 3,900 times in the past six years since George Bush declared an unlawful war against a sovereign nation–after he strutted across an aircraft carrier with a banner that read, “Mission Accomplished!” It means 3,900 family members trusted Bush to carry out his oath of office, but instead, he deceived them and us–into a vain war. He maintains his corrupt war with no plan for withdrawal—only more death and chaos.

One mother said, “Why is Bush preparing for his daughter’s wedding while I plan for my son’s funeral?”

While he prolongs his personal war in Iraq, he protects the Korean border with 35,000 U.S. troops while allowing millions of illegal aliens and uncounted terrorists full access across our southern borders for the past seven years. Any president with a brain larger than a prairie dog’s would have sealed our southern borders on 9/12/01 as the oath of office demands.

While he kills or maims our kids in Iraq, thousands of our citizens suffered death from illegal aliens who drive drunk, murder, rape, rob and distribute drugs. All of those nightmares would have been prevented if he had followed through on his oath of office by securing our borders. (Article IV, Section 4)

The other results of his Iraq War? He poured $600 billion and up to $1 trillion down a rat hole in Iraq and Afghanistan that hasn’t improved those countries one iota—and hasn’t caught Bin Laden or made this country safer. He killed hundreds of thousands of civilians. He inflamed the rest of the world against us. Over 75 percent of the troops from other countries pulled out. He’s maimed and amputated 29,000 of our finest kids who trusted his felonious judgment. Every year U.S. Army military suicides rise with 2007 topping at 121 kids. Dr. William Polk, author of “Violent Politics” told Congress last week, “More than 500,000 of our troops will need a lifetime of mental health care following their multiple deployments in Iraq.”

Bush spent 30 minutes insisting on how much progress we’re making in Iraq. Any drunken fool at a bar would lament, “What a crock of horse manure!”

Instead of taking care of the economic business of our nation, he watched annual trade deficits grow to $700 billion. He forced our country to borrow $2 billion daily to float our vacuous economy. Bush watched 10 million more illegal aliens cross our borders while he said, “They come to do the jobs that Americans won’t do.” Migrants do those jobs at slave wages, but they enjoy anchor babies at our expense, free breakfasts and lunches in our schools on our tax dollar and 400,000 convicted felon illegals enjoy free room and board in our prisons. Meanwhile our middle class sank into a new ‘poor class’ here in America.

The facts show that those migrants, now 20 million strong, degraded our culture through lack of assimilation, and now, because of Bush’s non-enforcement policies, we must tolerate, “Press 1 for Spanish or 2 for English.” We must tolerate millions of illegals marching in our streets demanding rights they do not possess in our country, which they unlawfully entered.

In Michigan last week, Governor Jennifer Granholm begged companies and corporations to move to Michigan where she promised no taxes. Her pleas resulted from Bush ignoring 3.1 million manufacturing and IT jobs leaving our country through insourcing, offshoring and outsourcing for the past seven years.

Fallout while Bush languished in the presidency: 1. Greatest foreclosure fraud on housing in American history. 2. No national energy conservation policy. 3. No movement toward solving climate change. 4. No immigration policy that leads to a stable U.S. population. 5. Nothing advanced to employ 14 million unemployed Americans. 6. Horrific $9 trillion debt. 7. $3.50 a gallon gas. 8. Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare bankrupting. 8. War on Drugs a total and complete failure and waste of $560,000 billion during his watch. 9. Worked to dissolve America’s borders by signing the Security, Prosperity Partnership that will destroy our sovereignty and force us into the North American Union with Canada and Mexico. 10. Patriot Act took away individual liberty.

George Bush’s legacy stems from his lack of integrity. Our predicament stems from his violation of his oath of office. This country may not survive the aforementioned items not mentioned in his State of the Union address. He proves himself the most inept, incompetent and disastrous president since the inception of this Republic.

Are we appalled enough? Are we incited enough to step up to the plate in the coming months by insisting on a president who values and upholds the sacred Constitution of the United States of America?
