Free-Market Capitalism is a Good thing (Problem is we are in a Monopoly)

The difference between free-market capitalism and monopoly capitalism and how that relates to the contest between individualism and collectivism, explained by Edward Griffin.

Since too many people hate on free-market capitalism, thinking it is something else, because they have been under-educated on what these things really are.

Amanda Knox: Free But Still Imprisoned

She's Home in Seattle, Washington.
She has Family, Friends, and no Prison Cell.
However, She spends most of her time at home, and has someone with her at all times on her occasional outings.
Hollywood and the Media are treating her like a Celebrity, so Privacy is in the lacking.
Paparazzi everywhere... I think some are hiding in my wood paneling, too.
Bidding Wars for her First American Interview, Film rights, and even a book deal are being pressed on her, though her family could use the money since they are over a Million dollars in debt, who could blame them if they take any of it?
At least her family has hired on a Crisis PR Agent to help handle the Press.

To top it all off, the Kercher family continues to pursue Amanda Knox, even though her case was overturned due to faulty and misleading evidence, shifty and unreliable witness testimony. The Real Culprit is known, the evidence is there, yet they continue their Witch-Hunt on an innocent person who also grieved for their daughter.

Sometimes in this World, when you are free you are still imprisoned.

One can only hope that the Kercher's will go after the real criminal, and that the Knox's will offer to help the Kercher's... In a perfect World...

Good Luck Amanda.

The Revolution Will Not be Televised...

...It will be Tweeted, Facebooked, and Live Streamed.

It seems even in the face of unwilling, overbearing,  and Rights trampling Politicians, Leaders, Royalty, and those Rich who fall into the 1 percentile.

The Occupy and 99% Movements, although not reaching critical mass yet, are infact growing and continuing their presence all around the World.

I watched the mainstream news, even outlets that claim support of personal freedoms and watched as they knocked and classified this movement as a bunch of out-of-work, classless, illiterate and less than intelligent idiots who don't really know what they want except to cause dystopia and bring the system down.

Those of us in support realize that the Mainstream media only interviews those people that make their opinion seem strongest. Many of these interviewees are staged, while some are really idiots; in anycase there will always be those persons who infiltrate a cause and undermine its value and purpose whether by subterfuge or by curious idiocy, or even just plain malfeasance.

The reasons for this cause may be not all encompassing, but the underlying truths are self-evident.
In Simple terms:

1. That the common people are fed-up with the way our Governments and Leaders are running the show.
2. Fed-up with the internal corruption, wishy-washy Leaders, and politicians that are bought off for Corporate and interests of only the 1%.
3. Fed-up with a monetary system that isn't backed by anything except the 'word' of Bankers who willingly steal from those who have next to nothing.
4. Fed-up with Business as usual, high inflation, dropping monetary value, see #3.
5. Fed-up with Home and Property Repossessions due to Banking and Mortgage inadequacies, or refusals to follow proper and legal procedures that would allow the common people the chance to rectify their situations.
6. Fed-up with the increasingly horrible Jobs market here in the United States of America as well as around the World, due to Governments fiscal policies, labor policies, and any and all policies that effect the worker/Business relationship. (The News may twist/distort/lie about the percentages, but 'We' know, because we are the ones not getting jobs, when we are told there are so many jobs available.)
7. Fed-up with the fact that Businesses have openings but are not hiring because they cannot afford to pay the wages of the employees they already have due to the current laws in place that make it considerably more expensive for a Business to hire workers whether due to insurance, or benefits, or other items that are generally necessary to the compensation and wherewithall of the employee.
8. Fed-up with the ever increasing taxes that keep being placed on the books of local municipalities, States, Territories ,and even Country's as a whole. While inflation makes the living wage unlivable, and it is hard enough to keep food on the table let alone pay all the bills necessary, and forget about getting sick, in an accident, or pregnant; you will lose your job.

The Truths are that, the Majority of the People representing this movement are Intelligent, hardworking individuals, who have been down-trodden by many different types of systems, and are upset and tired of the day to day rape of ourselves, our families and the World we live in.

Many of us are Unemployed and or Under-employed, some of us are Employed. Many of us have College and University Educations, some of us don't, but the one thing we all want is:

We want change and are trying to do so peacefully.

The Occupy Movement is huge and growing, take time to figure out what is really going on, and remember the Mainstream Media will only show you want they want you to know.

Columbus Day: The Tragedy

Anyone with an education will know who Christopher Columbus is, that he sailed in the 1490's to find a short cut to India, but ended up in the Caribbean instead.

That He met with the local Natives and called them Indians, and went back to Spain and had subsequent return trips.

Yet what most don't know is that he committed Genocide in the name of the Spanish Crown and Catholicism. Burning at the stake those who would not convert, Taking baby's and throwing them against rocks, cutting up the natives and sending the dogs on them.

He managed to take a population in the millions and bring it down to the 100,000's and eventually killed them all off.

Although I am of the opinion after seeing videos and other documentation decrying Columbus Day as a Holiday, and although I do support removing it, I do not believe that it is the most important issue belying the Natives.

However after being a bit harsh on this issue to some friends I figured I'd do them the honor of making this issue more accessible to the Public, even if it is a small contribution.

This link has a great article detailing the sanitizing of Columbus Day and his Atrocities.

Occupy Los Angeles: Thank you Mayor Villaraigosa

Thank you Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and City officials of Los Angeles for at least Publicly supporting the 1st Amendment and a Peoples Right to peaceably speak out and protest.

May more Public officials brave this movement in support and help out those of us who are braving the Elements to make a Clear and Valid point.

Thank you also to all those of you who have offered your services in a true Free Trade atmosphere, during this time of peaceable occupation.

Occupy Wall Street: Vote on Grievances

Take From: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2257303426938&set=p.2257303426938&type=1&theater

{Thank you Erika Morningstar for posting this information.}


Official Statement from Occupy Wall Street - this statement was voted on and approved by the general assembly of protesters at Liberty Square: Declaration of the Occupation of New York City

As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.

As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.

They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.

They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.

They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.

They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.

They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless nonhuman animals, and actively hide these practices.

They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions.

They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.

They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’ healthcare and pay.

They have influenced the courts to achieve the same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.

They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.

They have sold our privacy as a commodity.

They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press.

They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.

They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce.

They have donated large sums of money to politicians supposed to be regulating them.

They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.

They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantive profit.

They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.

They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.

They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.

They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad.

They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.

They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts.*

To the people of the world,

We, the New York City General Assembly occupying Wall Street in Liberty Square, urge you to assert your power.

Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.

To all communities that take action and form groups in the spirit of direct democracy, we offer support, documentation, and all of the resources at our disposal.

Join us and make your voices heard!

Happy Birthday John Lennon!

Happy Birthday John Lennon!

It is sad you are not with us, like so many others, who worked and strived to bring us out of our mass delusional hypocrisy.

You who took on a system that hated anyone who wished for change, and a change for the betterment of the masses.

You who tuned his music to 528Hz to help facilitate healing among the People.

You who along with others defined music and a cultural revolution for Generations to come.

You who sacrificed your self for the good of the rest of us.

You are most honored by me... the Ignorant and Naïve masses, for your efforts, like so many others before you.

When I was little...


When I was little...

I Played the Indian against the Cowboy, I didn't want to be President I wanted to be an Astronaut, Math gave me Migraines, (Literally), but I could tell you why the Country was in the state it was in because of my love for History.

I hated Country music but I loved the Blues, and even though I didn't fully understand why we hated the Communists so much, I still looked past the stereotyping and hate mongering and thought that the Russian People were really no different than you and I, it was just the Governments at fault somehow.

I was so shy I'd shake and tremble just at the thought of going on stage or dancing in front of people, but I loved to talk and I'd dance my heart out by myself.

Now that I'm all grown up, I love the Natives, and Pity the Cowboys, I still want to be an Astronaut and to hell with being a leader indebted to criminals.

Math still hurts my head though I found an appreciation for it in College, and I still promote that History is our sounding board.

I don't really hate Country music anymore but Blues is still my Favorite because it spawned so many great sub-genres of music, including but not limited to Rock 'n Roll, Chicago House Music, Contemporary Rock, and even in some distant effect; Eletronic music itself.

And although I despise anyone who thinks or promotes the idea that Equality is making everyone but 1% of the population poor, homeless and without property rights a way of life while that 1% gets Fat Rich of everyone else... I still think the Russian People are Amazing, then as now, kind of like a distant Cousin that we really should get to know better, instead of just following the old family standard of hating on them.

I still get nervous talking to a group of people especially on stage; but I can do it now, and although my family thinks otherwise, I have danced my heart out in  front of thousands of people many times.

I have always been a little different, but difference is good, difference causes change, change creates new ideas and new things, and new ideas and new things can build the foundation to a better future.

If we were all the same, we wouldn't have an identity, we wouldn't have the ability to identify with or learn to be different like someone else since we'd all be the same.

We wouldn't have a voice because without rights there is no right to speak, and there is nothing worse than a society that cannot speak for itself, whether they are right or wrong.

Nothing progressive ever happens in a society that does not dare to dream, and dream different.

Although I am saddened and abhorred by the state of the Union today, I still believe that the United States of America is the Greatest place on Earth.

Amanda Knox; Il Successo!

I debated on how I would write about this story, since it has been 4 years in the making and I am sure most Americans, (save those ardently following it), have forgotten.

In fact I must admit, this had been at the back of my mind recently, due to my own personal life's stressers and battles.

It just so happened after watching early morning ABC-Chicago's news that it came rushing back to me... and I recalled all the injustice of the matter of the Amanda Knox trial, and the 4 years of frustratingly inept forensics and postulating of evidence.

I'm not big on religious practices, and do not like to necessarily bring them up here in my writing, however I prayed in my own way, for a positive outcome for Amanda Knox and Rafaele Sollecito.

As the United Kingdom's Guardian Publication itterated today; "...that the explanation of what happened in Perugia's Via della Pergola on that winter's night in 2007 was actually perfectly simple. A man known to be a petty criminal, Rudy Guede, a drifter from Ivory Coast, broke in, either before or after Kercher returned from a quiet meal with her friends. He took advantage of the situation to try to rape her – a not uncommon occurrence, criminologists say – and, when she put up a vigorous struggle, he slashed her throat."

The evidence was clear and incontrovertible, yet the defense took on a completely different route that was not only illogical, but was not evidenced to the fact.

It makes me glad that I live in the United States of America, with a Justice system, (although corrupt in its own manner), still much better than anywhere else in the World.

I do however appreciate Amanda's Legal team who stuck with Amanda and her family and kept pushing for the truth to come out. As well I also appreciate and the Jury and Judges of the Appeals Court in Italy that took on the case again so that this injustice could be rectified.

I can't even imagine what Amanda Knox and her family and friends even Rafaele Sollecito and his Family and Friends, too, and what they are going through at this moment. However I suspect that it is full of tears of happiness and joy, and maybe even a disbelief that they are finally free.

I of course still hope for swift Justice for Meredith Kercher and her Family, that the real criminal is brought to Justice and sentenced for such a heinous crime.

I do hope in this aftermath that the World Press and Citizens of every Country that followed this case, give all Family's involved the proper time and respect to settle back together and contemplate their existence in the manner they so choose, (as Amanda's Sister Diana requests).

Congratulazioni per il vostro successo, Amanda Knox e Rafaele Sollecito!


P.S.
For all those naysayers out there, this for me never had anything to do with how Amanda and or Rafaele looked, or their Family's pleas. This had everything to do with the evidence, what was actually found and how it wasn't followed to it's natural conclusions. The fumbling, purgery, and total misappropriation of the evidence at hand has always been quite clear, especially to anyone who understands Collection of Evidence, DNA , witness testimony, as well as other inter-related items, that process individuals in courts of law.
This also shows an monumental failure of the Italian Police force involved as well as the original Jury who took obviously manipulated evidence and used it against the defendants.
Incidents like these happen even here in the U.S.A where there is a desire to wrap a case up quickly; whether to quash Press inquiry, or personal prejudices, or any other form of desire. These do happen from time to time. Yet the facts remain that evidence was ignored, and individuals were convicted on faulty if not misleading evidence, and that the real killer has had a 4 year pass all this time. I have been wrongly accused myself, and I understand how it feels to have no one understand such abuses. Even though the truth is so clearly wrought.
Granted I have never been jailed because of wrongful accusation, but the emotional distraught is similarly founded.
I am glad that Justice has been served, finally, and hope that the real killer is brought to Justice soon!


I have here some of the text of Amanda's Final Plea, and here is the full video.

International 9/11 Hearings to Begin

http://wakeup-world.com/2011/08/24/international-hearings-on-911-begins-september-2011-in-toronto/

This is something many of us in the U.S. as well as abroad have been waiting for for way too long now!

The Questions are obvious, the Reasons are obvious, The resulting Deaths are obvious; what isn't so obvious is why U.S. Government reports conflict with each other, or why they provide fudged scientific data, or that the reports completely ignore raw data, or that whole pieces of evidence for their version where either never found or where destroyed immediately by Government personal and Government Contractors without due process by Public scrutiny.

Whether or not there was Government involvement in the September 11th attacks, there was definitely a cover-up afterwards; because only guilty parties would destroy evidence before it had a chance to be scrutinized by everyone else, (considered by Law to be Destruction of Evidence and Obstruction of Justice), as well as using witness testimony that turned out to be falsified or coerced; which by the way is Perjury for those not up to speed.

All these things We the People would be jailed and fined for, but those with deep pockets seem to escape Justice's long arm.

Hopefully this is just not some stunt, but an actual honest investigation by the international community for the benefit of the Citizens of the World, and all those who are unjustly considered "Collateral Damage" by our Leaders.

Toxins in your Name-Brand Clothing

It comes as no real surprise that somewhere, someone, decided things that further depricate our health and well being.


An although I am not a huge fan of Greenpeace and the way they do business; I have to applaud them for keeping watch for our safety in this matter.

http://wakeup-world.com/2011/08/25/hormone-altering-chemicals-found-in-brand-name-clothing/


Samples of clothing from top brands including Adidas, Uniqlo, Calvin Klein, H&M, Abercrombie & Fitch, Lacoste, Converse and Ralph Lauren were found to be tainted with the chemicals, known as nonylphenol ethoxylates... nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs), commonly used as detergents in industries including the production of natural and synthetic textiles, were detected in two-thirds of the samples the group tested. “NPEs break down to form nonylphenol, which has toxic, persistent and hormone-disrupting properties,” Li told journalists in Beijing.


“It mimics female hormones, alters sexual development and affects reproductive systems.”
Quoted from: http://wakeup-world.com/

Just goes to show that, you really can't trust anyone for anything in this World today.
It really is sad and sick that Companies who need our consumerism, constantly put us at risk.


Prooving yet again whether on Wall-Street, in a Government Office, to the Food we eat and Liquids we drink, and even some of the Clothes we wear, Profit is the only real concern.


Here is the run down on those companies affected:

C.E.R.N. admits Global Warming is Sun's fault

http://wakeup-world.com/2011/09/02/c-e-r-n-scientific-study-concludes-global-warming-is-caused-by-the-sun/

"The new findings point to cosmic rays and the sun — not human activities — as the dominant controller of climate on Earth."


"63 CERN scientists from 17 European and American institutes have done what global warming doomsayers said could never be done — demonstrate that cosmic rays promote the formation of molecules that in Earth’s atmosphere can grow and seed clouds, the cloudier and thus cooler it will be. Because the sun’s magnetic field controls how many cosmic rays reach Earth’s atmosphere (the stronger the sun’s magnetic field, the more it shields Earth from incoming cosmic rays from space), the sun determines the temperature on Earth."
Quotes Courtesy of: wakeup-world.com


It feels good to be right, it feels even better to be Exactly right, and it feels just stupendous to know that the Global Warming Sham that of Humans are Responsible, is just that... a Sham.


Of course, don't get me wrong folks, I am first and foremost a believer in a clean Earth and Environment for You, Me, and Future Generations.


And I fully support most programs that help endeavor to remove toxins from our Air, Water, and Ground, but it was just hard to swallow Human Caused Global Warming, since We are still way below the Medieval Warm period, and when I saw Al Gore and other Global Warming poster children, had only shown the part of the chart related to the cooling and warming trends of the earth over some hundreds of years, to prove their point, (as well that it happened to be fudged a little, too).


Here is a Chart detailing the Global Warming and cooling trends over 4500 years; from 2500 B.C. (BCE), to 2040 A.D. (CE).

Thank you C.E.R.N. for your admission, most of the World thanks you I'm sure. The rest will just have to find another scheme to make money off of and I'm sure "they" will.
