In a previous weblog entry, I posted the results of my experiment with “side gapping” the spark plugs on my 1976 Dodge Motor Home, and adding 2 ounces of acetone to 10 gallons of gasoline.
Yesterday I performed a Highway Mileage test. Here are the results:
Previous mileage: 9 MPG
After modifications: 26.8 MPG
Results of City Driving Mileage:
Previous: 6 MPG
After Modifications: 11.2 MPG
For more information on Acetone as a fuel additive, go here.
I read the above referenced link AFTER performing these modifications, and the reports there on the addition of acetone are mostly positive. My city mileage tests were done with 2 - 50 mile trips between 2 fill ups, with probably 20 minutes of the dreaded gridlock. I am hoping this improves in subsequent tests. My Highway mileage test was based on 110 miles one way, 46 state highway miles, and the rest on the interstate in the evening hours with a moderate gusty cross wind for about 25 miles, and an average speed of 62 miles per hour.
Because I combined “side gapping” and the addition of acetone, I can’t say either way which gave the most improvement in increased mileage. However my increase is substantially higher than those reported at peswiki.com with just the addition of acetone, suggesting the side gapping added an additional 50 percent over and above just the acetone alone.
For one hour labor and 2 copper zinc clad cents per gallon for the acetone, I'd say I got a pretty good bargain! Now, if only I could find a supplier for gasoline who would take my silver for the gas, then I wouldn't have to feel guilty for ripping them off by paying in monetary units of no Thing.
You mileage may vary.

For the past year, I've been receiving communications from a practicing American psychiatrist, who has an office in the southeastern US. He sees patients privately and also works at a large hospital. Increasingly, this man has been expressing doubts about the drugs he has been prescribing.
Now, he has blown the lid off his own profession, and it appears he is ready to switch careers or become an alternative practitioner.
People want to outlaw all guns. I'd start with the drugs.
Why work out your problems and strive to have the life you want when you can arrive at the best destination with a pill? I'd take this a step further. If you stacked up all the tranquilizers and antidepressants, for adults, next to, say, marijuana, as a way of dealing with stress, I'd say that a very modest amount of a mild marijuana [Editors Link] would be more successful than all those other drugs at the levels they're normally prescribed. If I were forced to recommend one or the other, I'd go with the marijuana. And I'd say the drug companies know this. Which is one reason why, in the US, the enforcement on marijuana [Editors Link] has been stepping up.
Q: Who do you blame for this drugging catastrophe?
A: At the moment, everybody. The doctors, the drug companies, the FDA, the psychiatric teaching institutions, even the press. And at some point, patients are going to have to take responsibility and not follow the orders of their doctors.
Q: How do you feel about Bush's mental health screening program for all children?
A: All in all, it may turn out to be the worst thing he's done as president. It's just a tip of his hat to his pharmaceutical supporters. But the consequences---if this plan gets rolling---will be devastating.
Q: So what would a new paradigm look like?
A: For mental health? We have to get rid of all the old classsifications and disorders. We have to let all that sink into oblivion. That was wrong. That was largely fantasy.
A prime example of U.S. government crime: The CIA drug trafficking activities.
“A drug is neither moral nor immoral – it’s a chemical compound. The compound itself is not a menace to society until a human being treats it as if consumption bestowed a temporary license to act like an asshole.”
When they took the fourth amendment, I was silent because I don't deal drugs. When they took the sixth amendment, I kept quiet because I know I'm innocent. When they took the second amendment, I said nothing because I don't own a gun. Now they've come for the first amendment and I can't say anything at all.

THE SECRET COVENANT >>>
We will keep their lifespan short and their minds weak while pretending to do the opposite.
We will use soft metals, aging accelerators and sedatives in food and water, and also in the air.
The soft metals will cause them to lose their minds. We will promise to find a cure from our many fronts, yet we will feed them more poison.
US media censor uranium weapons storiesDepleted uranium turns to poison gas
Those Iraqis not yet radiologically contaminated must leave Iraq as soon as possible. Before they too get radiation poisoning, their genetic line is kaput, they die and become just so much radioactive sand in the deserts of Iraq.
The only hope of the US-UK troops in Iraq is that they get out before they take a fateful breath in the wrong place, at the wrong time. The not yet dead say there is a very slight metallic taste at the time.
That's the bottom line. The US military, funded by the US taxpayer who borrowed up to 80 percent of the world's savings at one time, killed the Iraqi people. The Iraqis don't even know it yet. Most scientists and just plain people are afraid to look them in the eye and tell them the truth. [OJ]
Running Out of Bubbles
Remember the stock market bubble? With everything that's happened since 2000, it feels like ancient history. But a few pessimists, notably Stephen Roach of Morgan Stanley, argue that we have not yet paid the price for our past excesses. I've never fully accepted that view. But looking at the housing market, I'm starting to reconsider. [Liberty Forum]

I have a 1976 Dodge Motor Home that was getting 6 miles per gallon. Not good, with all the profit taking going around!
I side gapped my spark plugs and added 2 ounces acetone per 10 gallons of gas.
My fuel mileage went from 6 to 11.2 MPG, city driving. :)
Figuring an average of 3,000 miles a year at 2.30 false notes per gallon, that is 1,380 false notes. Of course, when spikes of 100 false notes per barrel of oil occur in the future, that increases to 2,460 false notes.
Your mileage may vary.

Proponents of the seed pre-emption bills, including the Agriculture Department, are championing the interests of corporate "gene giants" such as Monsanto and Syngenta -- not citizens.
House Bill 671 and Senate Bill 631 aim to prevent towns, counties or cities from passing any ordinance, regulation or resolution to control any kind of plant or plant pest (including invasive plant species). The bills would usurp local control by making the state Department of Agriculture the only body in North Carolina with the authority to regulate plants. [OCA]

Another Formaldehyde Cocktail, Darling?
What if someone or some corporation, without telling you, poured formaldehyde into your morning coffee, your favorite yogurt, your chewing gum, your diet beverage and your children's vitamins? In essence, this is what happens every single time you consume aspartame, the neurotoxic additive whose assimilated by-product includes formaldehyde. [Rense]
From mass vaccination to aspartame and back again
In 1978, Rumsfeld became CEO of the G.W. Searle Corp. By June, 1981, his political muscle overcame science so that the deadly neurotoxic artificial sweetener aspartame could achieve U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. [IO]
$350 MILLION RICO LAWSUIT FILED OVER ASPARTAME
Contained in the lawsuit is the key role played by current Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld (search) in helping to get aspartame pushed through the FDA. Back in the 1980s, Rumsfeld was the President and CEO of Searle who originally owned the patent on aspartame. Plaintiffs maintain that Rumsfeld used his political muscle to get aspartame approved by the FDA despite objections of many FDA health researchers and negative studies. [NWV]

The next reserve currency
First the Roman emperors started chipping away at the edges - the need to prevent this resulted in the edge grooves still seen on many coins now in circulation - and then the purity of the coins was tampered with until they became pieces of lead covered with a thin coat of gold. [AT]
In Rome, the money supply was reduced by 90%. As a result, the common people lost their lands and their homes, just as is happening in America today. But we have done the Romans one better. Our coins have no Gold or Silver in them at all, and we exchange worthless pieces of paper for our labor. The only purpose of paper money is so some one can get some thing for no thing. Only fools and slaves defend it.
If the American people ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation, and then by deflation, the banks and orporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property, until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power of money should be taken from banks and restored to Congress and the people to whom it belongs. I sincerely believe the banking institutions having the issuing power of money, are more dangerous to liberty than standing armies.
~ Thomas Jefferson
Doesn't there have to be a victim for a crime to occur?
The state isn't a person!
Laws that restrict which guns people may buy, own, and carry; and laws that restrict which drugs people may buy, possess, and ingest -- what we're dealing with are possession crimes: victimless offenses against the state, whereby merely having something is branded a crime and punishable by fines and imprisonment. Of course, the drug war and gun control have led to huge black markets in drugs and guns. Guns don't kill people. People kill people.
No matter what you think of the inaccurate Newsweek item about flushing the Koran down a Guantanamo toilet, it's a mistake to say, as the White House does, that Muslims died because of it. Toilets don't kill people, fanatics do.

The Money Masters - Now available on the web!
The Federal Reserve was chartered on December 23rd under the guise of deceit by an act of congress in 1913 when most members had gone home for the holidays. . You had three members of the senate according to the senate journal, and they passed the Federal Reserve act on a unanimous consent voice vote. If there had been one person there to object and contest the absence of a quorum, it would not have passed.
In the bible 200 years ago, Jesus drove the money changers from the temple. It was the only time Jesus used force during his ministry.
In Rome, the money supply was reduced by 90%. As a result, the common people lost their lands and their homes, just as is happening in America today. One dollar in 1913 has the same buying power as 19.37 dollars in 2005. That is 94.8% of its buying power. In America today, usury and debased coin has become the rule.
Central bankers based in the City of London control the cartels that dominate the world. They finagled the right to print money based on our credit and quite naturally used this advantage to buy control of everything worth having.
This might be tolerable if limitless wealth was all they wanted. But they also want limitless power: not just one-world dictatorship but total control over our minds and souls.
Watch it here.

The Economic Tsunami
It seems that there are a growing number of people who believe as I do, that the economic tsunami planned by the Bush administration is probably only months away.
The administration is currently putting as much pressure as possible on OPEC to ratchet up the flow of oil another 1 million barrels per day (well over capacity) to settle down nervous markets and buy time for the planned bombing of Iran in June.
The country has been intentionally plundered and will eventually wind up in the hands of its creditors as Bush and his lieutenants planned from the very beginning.
Did Americans really believe they could avoid a similar fate?
If so, they'd better forget about it, because the hammer is about to come down big-time, and the collateral damage will be huge. [Counter Punch]

Simply put, the so-called income tax is another GIANT HOAX that has been perpetrated on the unsuspecting sleeping tax-payers by the MONEY-CHANGERS! While the judges
When the Constitution was established, it gave Congress full and all embracing taxing powers. Except for the prohibition against taxing exports. The Constitution laid down two rules by which the two classes of taxes were to be governed. They were the rule of apportionment as to direct taxes, and the rule of uniformity as to indirect taxes (duties, imposts and excises). However, when the MONEY-CHANGERS took over control of our Treasury in 1913, they needed a way to collect the interest (tribute) from our nation. Was it through fraud and deceit just like the serpent in the Garden of Eden? Or, was it just a coincidence the 16th Amendment (Income Tax) was also passed in 1913? The IRS is nothing more than the collection agency of the tribute the Federal Reserve charges us on their "worthless" paper money. DON'T BELIEVE ME! Look at the last check you sent to the IRS. Its endorsed "PAY ANY F.R.B. [Federal Reserve Bank] BRANCH OR GEN. DEPOSITORY FOR CREDIT U.S. TREASURY. THIS IS IN PAYMENT OF U.S. OBLIGATIONS; MUST BE PAID AT PAR N.P. DO NOT WIRE NON-PAYMENT"
For the IRS to deposit your income tax check into Federal Reserve Banks is in direct violation of Internal Revenue Code, Section 7809 (a) Deposit of Collections, which states: ". . . the gross amount of all taxes and revenue received under the provisions of this title and collection of whatever nature received or collected by authority of any Internal Revenue law, shall be deposited daily into the Treasury of the United States under instructions of the Secretary as internal revenue collections . . ."

The Iran Crisis in Global Context
by Dilip Hiro and Tom Engelhardt
"The Bush administration has not only refused to adhere to its obligations under the treaty … but has now embarked on what is anathema under the treaty – the production of a new generation of nuclear weapons. These are the new, more compact, nukes the administration says it needs for the so-called war on terrorism. It beggars belief that the administration appears to believe it can succeed in restraining Iran while it proceeds to violate its obligations."
According to American intelligence, Iran is probably still seven years away from producing a nuclear weapon (assuming that's what it's intent on doing, which is not at all clear) – and yet Iran may prove the fulcrum on which the NPT is cracked open. In the meantime, the Bush administration is in search of that new generation of mini-nukes (while protecting nuclear allies, in particular transforming post-9/11 Pakistan from a "nuclear outlaw to 'major non-NATO ally'"), while Israel, with an estimated nuclear arsenal of 200-300 weapons, ranging from ones small enough to imagine using in war-fighting situations to those large enough to level any city in the Middle East, evidently continues to quietly upgrade. In fact, it seems that once any country has such weaponry, the urge to build and upgrade is almost irresistible, even when militarily completely pointless. [Anti War]

Iran: A Bridge too Far?
by Mark Gaffney
Many years ago, Soviet planners gave up trying to match the US Navy ship for ship, gun for gun, and dollar for dollar. The Soviets simply could not compete with the high levels of US spending required to build up and maintain a huge naval armada. They shrewdly adopted an alternative approach based on strategic defense. They searched for weaknesses, and sought relatively inexpensive ways to exploit those weaknesses. The Soviets succeeded: by developing several supersonic anti-ship missiles, one of which, the SS-N-22 Sunburn, has been called “the most lethal missile in the world today.”
A single one of these missiles can sink a large warship, yet costs considerably less than a fighter jet.
According to one report, when the Iranian Defense Minister Ali Shamkhani visited Moscow in October 2001 he requested a test firing of the Sunburn, which the Russians were only too happy to arrange. So impressed was Ali Shamkhani that he placed an order for an undisclosed number of the missiles.
The US Navy has never faced anything in combat as formidable as the Sunburn missile. But this will surely change if the US and Israel decide to wage a so-called preventive war against Iran to destroy its nuclear infrastructure.
With enough anti-ship missiles, the Iranians can halt tanker traffic through Hormuz for weeks, even months. With the flow of oil from the Gulf curtailed, the price of a barrel of crude will skyrocket on the world market. Within days the global economy will begin to grind to a halt. [ICH]

America is Losing: More Phony Jobs Hype
Outsourcing's proponents claim that it benefits corporations and their shareholders. This is true only in the short run. The substitution of foreign labor for American labor allows executives to reduce costs and increase profits, thus producing large bonuses for themselves and capital gains for shareholders.

TAXES, GASOLINE, and THE COMING ECONOMIC SLOWDOWN
$4 a Gallon – Itz coming, and you can say I didn’t tell you so.
Former Federal Reserve Board Chairman Paul Volcker, a pillar of the Establishment with access to economic information beyond our reach, wrote recently: "Circumstances seem to me as dangerous and intractable as any I can remember. What really concerns me is that there seems to be so little willingness or capacity to do anything about it" (quoted in The Economist, April 16, p.12). Volcker chooses words carefully: "dangerous and intractable," "willingness or capacity." He's saying: The situation is probably beyond our powers to remedy.
But this time around the economic cycle is different. The leading governments and central banks of the world are combining their efforts to establish a fully integrated global economic order (GEO) that will require a relative balance among the major economies, including the U.S. Hence the coming international taxing authority, which for the time being is being administered by the oil companies and other multinational interests.
In truth, the much-bemoaned spike in fuel prices is more a function of manipulation and speculative activity than a true supply/demand imbalance. The imbalance in the market equation is a testament to the excessive greed of the oil cartel than to a squeeze in the supply pipelines. [Financial Sense]

The legislation also grants open-ended authority to the Secretary of Homeland Security to require biometric information on IDs in the future.

They should be included in your investment planning to protect against inflation and a falling dollar. A dollar which has lost 95% of its buying power since 1915 Bureau of Labor Statistics [CNI]
At least some folks are dealing in reality. Paper isn't money, but the liars want you to think it is. A Dollar is 371.25 grains of fine silver. But remember the golden rule? You know, he who has the gold makes the rules?
According to the CPI Inflation calculator at the BLS website, $1.00 in 1913 has the same buying power as $19.53 in 2005. Gold and silver are the most stable currency the world has ever seen. A chicken at the time of the Prophet, salla'llahu alaihi wa sallam, cost one dirham; today, 1,400 years later, a chicken costs approximately one dirham. In 1,400 years inflation is zero. Could we say the same about the dollar or any other paper currency in the last 25 years?
Imaginary wages fall at fastest rate in 14 years
Inflation rose 3.1 per cent in the year to March but salaries climbed just 2.4 per cent, according to the Employment Cost Index. In the final three months of 2004, real wages fell by 0.9 per cent.
The last time salaries fell this steeply was at the start of 1991, when real wages declined by 1.1 per cent.
Stingy pay rises mean many Americans will have to work longer hours to keep up with the cost of living, and they could ultimately undermine consumer spending and economic growth. [Financial Times]
Uh, like anybody is being paid? Slaves don't get paid for their labor. Inflation is relative term used to gloss over what is actually a tax used to fund a socialist agenda of an illegitmate government operated by individuals producing nothing of value for society.Lessons from Japan's bubble -- for ours
A real-estate bust could cause problems throughout our financial system. Just ask Japan, where the economy is still struggling to get over a 1990 crash. [Money Central]
I wonder if those folks in Japan actually own anything, or if like we Americans, they possess much, but own little or nothing. Watch for the day when the last meaningful productive job in America is exported to China, and the foreigners come to collect on the debt. You can't get something for nothing, unless of course, you're a banker.
What a strange bubble this anticivilization.

Similar to the Iraq war, upcoming operations against Iran relate to the macroeconomics of the `petrodollar recycling’ and the unpublicized but real challenge to U.S. dollar supremacy from the euro as an alternative oil transaction currency.
While the publicly stated reasons will be over Iran's nuclear ambitions, there are unspoken macroeconomic drivers explaining the Real Reasons regarding the 2nd stage of petrodollar warfare - Iran's upcoming euro-based oil Bourse.
It is now obvious the invasion of Iraq had less to do with any threat from Saddam’s long-gone WMD program and certainly less to do to do with fighting International terrorism than it has to do with gaining control over Iraq’s hydrocarbon reserves and in doing so maintaining the U.S. dollar as the monopoly currency for the critical international oil market.
Given U.S. debt levels and the stated neoconservative project for U.S. global domination, Tehran's objective constitutes an obvious encroachment on U.S. dollar supremacy in the international oil market [Energy Bulletin]
Central banking makes possible the expansion of government power in all forms, most particularly the wicked godfather of all government programs: war. Without central banking, it is doubtful that any of the great wars of the 20th century, or the current debacle in Iraq , would have ever taken place, certainly not on the scale we have seen. [Strike The Root]
"Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes...known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. . . No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare."
- James Madison, Political Observations, 1795

9-11 Fax to Congress
The following letter (reproduced here in a slightly edited form for brevity) is being sent by a group called 9/11 Truth Action to the 89 Congress people who recently wrote to President Bush about Iraq. The Congress people demanded that the president explain why he "fixed" the Iraqi intelligence in order to rationalize the invasion of Iraq.
After you read the letter, and view the video and link referenced in the letter, write congress yourself to give a piece of your mind! [George Washington's Blog]
What's all the fuss with the Real ID Act about?
Fifty percent of all Americans, according to Gallup, remain blissfully locked in a coma devoid of any moral boundaries. Not that many people know because nations have progressed through this sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith
From spiritual faith to great courage
From courage to liberty
From liberty to abundance
From abundance to selfishness
From selfishness to complacency
From complacency to apathy
From apathy to dependency
From dependency back to bondage.

Read this article by Edwin Vieira, Jr. here:
Part I (Excerpts)
Where, then, should Americans look for constitutional "homeland security"? The Second Amendment to the Constitution provides the first giant steps towards the answer:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
This right and power derives from:
... in the case of a criminal conspiracy among public officials to deprive Americans of their lives, liberties, or property, the overarching principle of the Declaration of Independence, that "when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce the[ people] under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security".
...although "the Militia of the several States" are State institutions, the States cannot dispense with them, either, because the Constitution presupposes their permanence, and the Constitution is "the supreme Law of the Land". Article VI, Clause 2. Obviously, if the States could dissolve their Militia at will, they could erase Congress's power to "call[ ] forth the Militia". They could render unfulfillable the duty of the United States to "guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government" and to "protect each of them against Invasion; and * * * against domestic Violence".

My heart has broken many times over the past 15 years as I have learned the truth and watched our farmers and ranchers go under, one after another. This nation was built on agriculture and manufacturing. It is what gave us the ability to be a self-sustaining nation, producing what we need for survival. The American people need to stop excusing their member of Congress and vote all of them out of office (except two). Collectively, as a whole, they have been and will continue to destroy this Republic, forcing a once free people onto their knees to a one world government under communist domination.
If you'd like to see what one dollar bought in 1913 before the robber banking barons got hold of your money compared to today's purchasing power, click here and then click on Consumer Price Index Inflation Calculator. You will be shocked and perhaps begin to understand why this mathematically flawed system will collapse. It's just a matter of time and so many Americans will be caught with nothing but debt. If they think calling their Congress critter like Hillary Clinton is going to save their bacon or provide $15.00 to buy a bottle of milk for their baby, they had best think again. Hillary and the rest of them will be barricaded inside their fortress out in Washington, DC. [Article]
Two years later and I'm still beating my head against a political wall.....Will people wake up and recognize the damage caused by career politicians? Is it necessary that we suffer the consequences of economic collapse and depression? Will the people recognize that these despots rely on our ignorance and apathy to leech off our productive efforts and usurp bogus un-earned livelihoods? Should we continue to attempt to reform the system? We The People have petitioned these career politicians. They ignore our petitions. Enough is enough!
If we want to protect our freedom, then we must eliminate the ruling elite's financial power base by dispensing with the Income Tax and the Federal Reserve System, the invisible government, and replace it with a financial structure which is in keeping with the U.S. Constitution. Article 1, Section 8 states: "The Congress shall have the Power To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures." Furthermore, "No State shall...coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts."
THE TRAP WE MUST AVOID IS IN BELIEVING THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT CAN BE FIXED
It is of vital importance that We, The People, realize that we do not need the present government that has designed to reduce Americans under absolute Despotism, and that is must now be DISPLACED, and new Guards be instilled for the future security of America, and for the survival of the human family. [TM&SC from the beginning]
I suppose I should consider starting my One Stalk Revolution in Peru. I'm getting tired of beating my head against the wall, I swear I've aged ten years in the last two, my hair has started turning grey, it gives me headaches, and I never did like waking people up anyway. Especially when they're not ready to wake up. And Utahan's seem blissfully comfortable with there NWO Man, Jon Huntsman Jr., External Authority extraordanaire. There's no room for a Constitutional Republic in the socialist corporate world, and If Utahan's want the NWO, well, let em have it. I can always leave, right?
Provided I get out before they issue my papers.

US Backing for Colombia Drug War Criticized
by Andrew Selsky
One foreign drug agent recently stationed here said he personally believed the solution was to legalize drugs, so trafficking would not be so hugely profitable. The FARC and their paramilitary foes control much of the drug trade in Colombia, which produces most of the world's cocaine and much of its heroin.
"We should recognize that by criminalizing drugs, we are allowing outlawed groups in Colombia to earn a vast amount of money," said the agent, who did not want to be further identified.
The Monitor, a daily in McAllen, Texas, said in a recent editorial that the drug war is "a demonstrated failure," and argued for legalization. [Article]
Let's see, I think I covered that one too a while back. Yep.....
Such property-rights justice combined with terminating a corrupt judicial system, and the insanely destructive Republican “war on drugs” and its irrational anti-drug laws, would not only dramatically cut crime rates, police abuses, and drug pushing onto America’s youth, but would also cut the financial lifelines of terrorists and tyrants worldwide.

With rising oil prices about to severely impact the price of all food grown on distant “factory farms”, now might be a prudent time to look into growing some of your own food in a backyard, back deck or rooftop garden. Utilizing handmade planter boxes, baskets, buckets and pots keeps plants out of most trouble, while making them easy to manage. But growing food is also about growing you
“Simplicity begins inside ourselves as we decide what really matters to each of us,” Elgin explains. “Voluntary simplicity means choosing our path through life consciously, deliberately, and of our own accord. It’s not so much about living with less as it is about living with purpose and balance.” >>>
"Control energy and you control the nations, control food and you control the people" is a quote credited to former Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger. [Federal Observer]

Recently there has been some scuttlebutt about google.
In order to use Google effectively in the future, it may be necessary to click on the page numbers at the bottom of the page until you reach the end of the list. Remember, in Bushzarro world, everything is backwards, up is down, night is day, mass murder is democracy, etc. Bushzarro Google, as a large corporate leviathan with a strangle hold on the “search market,” will naturally follow these dynamics. In order to find the truth, more work will be required.
Not to worry!
Yes, we live in an upside down anticivilization, but...
"Pop in a factual question and voila -- you usually get exactly the answer you were looking for... Bookmark this, on the double!" .....
Mystical TRUTH is unreal. Get the FACTS. Fully integrated HONESTY rules!
What is “truth”? Everyone disputes its meaning. I prefer facts in reality as the foundation from which honesty can build. Acting on facts makes an individual more competitive than those operating on mystical “truths.” Freedom involves self responsibility and requires discipline to get the facts in reality, rational thought to arrive at a logical conclusions, and then actions based on fully integrated honesty to move beyond this upside down anticivilization. External authority is a cog in the wheels. For example:The lives and actions of people are their own responsibility, not the government's.

Greenspan's Remarkable 1966 Admission about Gold
"In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value. If there were, the government would have to make its holding illegal, as was done in the case of gold. . . . The financial policy of the welfare state requires that there be no way for the owners of wealth to protect themselves. This is the shabby secret of the welfare statists' tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth."
--Alan Greenspan, 1966
The two levers of power that have allowed Gargantua to grow into such a beast were given to it in 1913 with the enactment of the Federal Reserve and the progressive income tax. These two institutions destroyed the idea of "limited government" that the Founders had given us in 1787. The Federal Reserve was granted the legal power to create paper money and thus rob Americans of their wealth surreptitiously. With Richard Nixon's closing of the gold window in 1971, this power then allowed the Fed to inflate the currency at will, which has increased Washington's capacity to depreciate the dollar even further and rob Americans of their wealth even faster. The second lever of power, the progressive income tax, gave to the Federal Government the ability to seize unlimited earnings from productive Americans to buy voter support from vast hordes of special interest groups.
