Ending Today's Economic Crisis Simply and Easily, in America and Globally
After reading the above story, let's consider what Hitler did:
Hitler and the National Socialists, who came to power in 1933, thwarted the international banking cartel by issuing their own money. In this they took their cue from Abraham Lincoln, who funded the American Civil War with government-issued paper money called "Greenbacks."
Hitler began his national credit program by devising a plan of public works. Projects earmarked for funding included flood control, repair of public buildings and private residences, and construction of new buildings, roads, bridges, canals, and port facilities. The projected cost of the various programs was fixed at one billion units of the national currency. One billion non-inflationary bills of exchange, called Labor Treasury Certificates, were then issued against this cost. Millions of people were put to work on these projects, and the workers were paid with the Treasury Certificates.
This government-issued money wasn't backed by gold, but it was backed by something of real value. It was essentially a receipt for labor and materials delivered to the government. Hitler said, "for every mark that was issued we required the equivalent of a mark's worth of work done or goods produced." The workers then spent the Certificates on other goods and services, creating more jobs for more people.
Within two years, the unemployment problem had been solved and the country was back on its feet. It had a solid, stable currency, no debt, and no inflation, at a time when millions of people in the United States and other Western countries were still out of work and living on welfare.
Germany even managed to restore foreign trade, although it was denied foreign credit and was faced with an economic boycott abroad. It did this by using a barter system: equipment and commodities were exchanged directly with other countries, circumventing the international banks. This system of direct exchange occurred without debt and without trade deficits. Germany's economic experiment, like Lincoln's, was short-lived; but it left some lasting monuments to its success, including the famous Autobahn, the world's first extensive superhighway.
Hjalmar Schacht, who was then head of the German central bank, is quoted in a bit of wit that sums up the German version of the "Greenback" miracle. An American banker had commented, "Dr. Schacht, you should come to America. We've lots of money and that's real banking." Schacht replied, "You should come to Berlin. We don't have money. That's real banking."
Although Hitler has rightfully gone down in infamy in the history books, he was quite popular with the German people, at least for a time. Stephen Zarlenga suggests in The Lost Science of Money that this was because he temporarily rescued Germany from English economic theory — the theory that money must be borrowed against the gold reserves of a private banking cartel rather than issued outright by the government. According to Canadian researcher Dr. Henry Makow, this may have been a chief reason Hitler had to be stopped: he had sidestepped the international bankers and created his own money.
But Hitler had become an even bigger threat than Stalin when he had taken the bold step of printing his own money. Rakovsky said:
[Hitler] took over for himself the privilege of manufacturing money and not only physical moneys, but also financial ones; he took over the untouched machinery of falsification and put it to work for the benefit of the state . . . . Are you capable of imagining what would have come . . . if it had infected a number of other states . . . . If you can, then imagine its counterrevolutionary functions.
Economist Henry C K Liu writes of Germany's remarkable transformation:
The Nazis came to power in Germany in 1933, at a time when its economy was in total collapse, with ruinous war-reparation obligations and zero prospects for foreign investment or credit. Yet through an independent monetary policy of sovereign credit and a full-employment public-works program, the Third Reich was able to turn a bankrupt Germany, stripped of overseas colonies it could exploit, into the strongest economy in Europe within four years, even before armament spending began.
In Billions for the Bankers, Debts for the People (1984), Sheldon Emry commented:
Germany issued debt-free and interest-free money from 1935 and on, accounting for its startling rise from the depression to a world power in 5 years. Germany financed its entire government and war operation from 1935 to 1945 without gold and without debt, and it took the whole Capitalist and Communist world to destroy the German power over Europe and bring Europe back under the heel of the Bankers. Such history of money does not even appear in the textbooks of public (government) schools today.
What does appear in modern textbooks is the disastrous runaway inflation suffered in 1923 by the Weimar Republic (the common name for the republic that governed Germany from 1919 to 1933). The radical devaluation of the German mark is cited as the textbook example of what can go wrong when governments are given the unfettered power to print money. That is what it is cited for; but in the complex world of economics, things are not always as they seem. The Weimar financial crisis began with the impossible reparations payments imposed at the Treaty of Versailles. Schacht, who was currency commissioner for the Republic, complained:
The Treaty of Versailles is a model of ingenious measures for the economic destruction of Germany. . . . The Reich could not find any way of holding its head above the water other than by the inflationary expedient of printing bank notes.
That is what he said at first. But Zarlenga writes that Schacht proceeded in his 1967 book The Magic of Money "to let the cat out of the bag, writing in German, with some truly remarkable admissions that shatter the 'accepted wisdom' the financial community has promulgated on the German hyperinflation."
Schacht revealed that it was the privately-owned Reichsbank, not the German government, that was pumping new currency into the economy. Like the U.S. Federal Reserve, the Reichsbank was overseen by appointed government officials but was operated for private gain. What drove the wartime inflation into hyperinflation was speculation by foreign investors, who would sell the mark short, betting on its decreasing value. In the manipulative device known as the short sale, speculators borrow something they don't own, sell it, then "cover" by buying it back at the lower price.
Speculation in the German mark was made possible because the Reichsbank made massive amounts of currency available for borrowing, marks that were created with accounting entries on the bank's books and lent at a profitable interest. When the Reichsbank could not keep up with the voracious demand for marks, other private banks were allowed to create them out of nothing and lend them at interest as well.
According to Schacht, then, not only did the government not cause the Weimar hyperinflation, but it was the government that got it under control. The Reichsbank was put under strict government regulation, and prompt corrective measures were taken to eliminate foreign speculation, by eliminating easy access to loans of bank-created money. Hitler then got the country back on its feet with his Treasury Certificates issued Greenback-style by the government.
Schacht actually disapproved of this government fiat money, and wound up getting fired as head of the Reichsbank when he refused to issue it (something that may have saved him at the Nuremberg trials). But he acknowledged in his later memoirs that allowing the government to issue the money it needed had not produced the price inflation predicted by classical economic theory. He surmised that this was because factories were sitting idle and people were unemployed. In this he agreed with John Maynard Keynes: when the resources were available to increase productivity, adding new money to the economy did not increase prices; it increased goods and services. Supply and demand increased together, leaving prices unaffected.
Lets take a closer look at the Third Reich social policies:
Education under the Nazi regime focused on racial biology, population policy, culture, geography and especially physical fitness.
Recent research by academics such as Götz Aly has emphasized the role of the extensive Nazi social welfare programs that focused on providing employment for German citizens and insuring a minimal living standard for German citizens. Heavily focused on was the idea of a national German community. To aid the fostering of a feeling of community, the German people's labour and entertainment experiences — from festivals, to vacation trips and traveling cinemas — were all made a part of the "Strength through Joy" program. Also crucial to the building of loyalty and comradeship was the implementation of the National Labour Service and the Hitler Youth Organization, with compulsory membership. In addition to this, a number of architectural projects were undertaken. KdF created the KdF-wagen, later known as the Volkswagen (People's Car), which was designed to be an automobile that every German citizen would be able to afford. The KdF wagon also was created in the idea that it could be converted to a military vehicle for war. Another national project undertaken was the construction of the Autobahn, which made it the first freeway system in the world.
According to the research of Robert N. Proctor for his book The Nazi War on Cancer, Nazi Germany had arguably the most powerful anti-tobacco movement in the world. Anti-tobacco research received a strong backing from the government, and German scientists proved that cigarette smoke could cause cancer. German pioneering research on experimental epidemiology lead to the 1939 paper by Franz H. Müller, and the 1943 paper by Eberhard Schairer and Erich Schöniger which convincingly demonstrated that tobacco smoking was a main culprit in lung cancer. The government urged German doctors to counsel patients against tobacco use.
German research on the dangers of tobacco was silenced after the war, and the dangers of tobacco had to be rediscovered by American and English scientists in the early 1950s, with a medical consensus arising in the early 1960s. German scientists also proved that asbestos was a health hazard, and in 1943 — as the first nation in the world to offer such a benefit — Germany recognized the diseases caused by asbestos, e.g., lung cancer, as occupational illnesses eligible for compensation. The German asbestos-cancer research was later used by American lawyers doing battle against the Johns-Manville Corporation.
As part of the general public-health campaign in Nazi Germany, water supplies were cleaned up, lead and mercury were removed from consumer products, and women were urged to undergo regular screenings for breast cancer.
The Nazis opposed women's feminist movement, claiming that it was Jewish-led and was bad for both women and men. The Nazi regime advocated a patriarchial society in which German women would recognize the "world is her husband, her family, her children, and her home." Hitler claimed that women taking vital jobs away from men during the Great Depression was economically bad for families in that women were paid only 66 percent of what men earned. This being said, Hitler never considered endorsing the idea of raising women's wages to avoid such a scenario again, but instead called for women to stay at home. Simultaneously with calling for women to leave work outside the home, the regime called for women to be actively supportive of the state regarding women's affairs.
On the issue of sexual affairs regarding women, the Nazis differed greatly from the restrictive stances on women's role in society. The Nazi regime promoted a liberal code of conduct as regards sexual matters, and were sympathetic to women bearing children out of wedlock
(In my own notes, Hitler still wanted women to be involved in state affairs, not home, barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen all the time. Plus who is gonna raise the kids and teach them morals and values if the women are working all the time?)
In 1935 the regime enacted the "Reich Nature Protection Act". While not a purely Nazi piece of legislation since parts of its influences pre-dated the Nazi rise to power, it nevertheless reflected Nazi ideology. The concept of the Dauerwald (best translated as the "perpetual forest") which included concepts such as forest management and protection was promoted and efforts were also made to curb air-pollution.
Animal protection policy
In 1933 the regime enacted a stringent animal-protection law
Established in 1934, the Nationalsozialistischer Reichsbund für Leibesübungen (NSRL), (sometimes also known under the acronym NSRBL) was the umbrella organization for sports during the Third Reich.
Two major displays of Nazi German art and culture were at the 1936 Summer Olympics and at the German pavilion at the 1937 International Exposition in Paris. The 1936 Olympics was meant to display to the world the Aryan superiority of Germany to other nations. German athletes were carefully chosen not only for strength but for Aryan appearance.
However, one common belief of Hitler snubbing African-American athlete Jesse Owens has recently been discovered to be technically incorrect — it was African-American athlete Cornelius Cooper Johnson who was believed to have been snubbed by Hitler, who left the medal ceremonies after awarding a German and a Finn medal. Hitler claimed it was not a snub, but that he had official business to attend to which caused him to depart. On reports that Hitler had deliberately avoided acknowledging his victories, and had refused to shake his hand, Owens recounted:
"When I passed the Chancellor he arose, waved his hand at me, and I waved back at him. I think the writers showed bad taste in criticizing the man of the hour in Germany." He also stated: "Hitler didn't snub me — it was FDR who snubbed me. The president didn't even send me a telegram."
Hitler was criticized for this and the Olympic committee officials insisted that he greet each and every medalist, or none at all. Hitler did not attend any of the medal presentations which followed, including the one after Jesse Owens won his four medals, and met with German winners outside the stadium afterwards.
After reading this one can probably see that all the stories about Hitler don't appear to be factual. He was a man that cared about his people, their education and their lives. It kinda makes that worn out argument of "Hitler only wanted to kill the Jews" sound a little stupid. I find it hard to believe that the Third Reich could have Animal Rights laws, cleaned up the water, air and pollution plus pass conservation laws protecting the forests......Only to turn around and kill 6 million Jews in "gas chambers" and burn them, not to mention all the horror stories about the Nazis? Hmmm...... I don't buy it.
Here is something else to take a look at. I thought it was interesting:
Then lets take a look at what Thomas Jefferson said:

Most people are average - - otherwise, the word wouldn’t mean what it means - - but try telling someone (s)he’s average. Most people believe themselves to be above average, but some of them are necessarily mistaken. People others classify as “trash” don’t consider themselves trash. Folks who consider themselves super special aren’t seen that way by as many as they imagine.
I suppose it’s all “in the eye of the beholder.”
Most people who will tell you they are honest, aren’t. Try buying a used automobile from “Honest Abe’s Car Sales.” If you have to tell me you’re honest, then it’s highly probable you’re not. You’d be far more convincing if you’d simply show me rather than tell me. But even if you demonstrate honesty in one instance, that’s no guarantee you’ll be honest in other situations. We mislead ourselves if we believe all we see, and we’re fools if we believe anywhere near all we hear. Too much of both isn’t what it seems to be. A great deal of what “everybody knows” simply isn’t true. Most often reality hides and has to be searched for and, even when found, may be hard to believe. It’s seldom obvious.
Yes, some folks are honest, no doubt about it. But few truly honest people ever achieve much of anything above average (you and I are exceptions of course). The truth is, despite its virtuosity, honesty doesn’t pay very well. As I ponder the matter, I can’t think of a single profession or industry that’s uncompromisingly rooted in truth. Try it. Name one. Just one. I’m all ears.
Pastors lie, or at least bend the truth, always trying to expand membership and increase tithes and offerings. Cops lie when interrogating suspects, to make the accused believe the police know things they don’t. The law even allows them to legally do that. But if you lie to them, well, ask Martha Stewart about that one. Salespeople and advertisers lie. Products are never as “amazing” as represented and advertised.
Even those batteries that “keep going and going and going and going” run down long before you expect. No need to discuss auto dealers, either new or used, nor auto repair businesses. Everybody already knows about them. They don’t bat an eye when they sell you a rebuilt transmission for $1,000 when all you needed was a $3 quart of transmission fluid. They apparently figure if you’re so dense that you came to them without first checking your fluid level, then they’re going to cash in on your ignorance.
Public school teachers lie. They teach things many of them know are not true, but it’s a prerequisite for keeping their jobs. The ones who believe some of the untrue things they teach aren’t worthy of their title. But incompetence is one of the things our public indoctrination system spawns, so that’s no surprise.
Building contractors lie. Few put behind those walls all of what they tell you is there and, those who actually do, lie about how much it cost them. Doctors pretend to know more about what’s ailing you than they know, and they promote medicines they prescribe long before they have any credible feedback on the effects and side effects. They parrot the same misrepresentations the pharmaceutical salespeople fed them. It’s all about making money, generating profits; the more obscene the profits, the greater the misrepresentations and outright lies are apt to be.
We could discuss countless vocations and professions - - Realtors, accountants, lawyers - - but let’s cut to the chase. Let’s talk about politicians and governments. That’s where this is headed.
Fewer than a dozen of the nearly 3,000 languages contain separate words for “politics” and “propaganda.” In all those other languages, a single word properly refers to both. Politicians are professional propagandists. Liars. Cheats. Thieves. It’s their PROFESSION. Everything they SAY is calculated to keep the people fooled and get themselves re-elected. Everything they DO is calculated to (1) extract more money from the people, and/or (2) expand government control over them. It’s the nature of politics. It’s the nature of propaganda. Whoops, I said that already.
National politicians feel smug in their expensive clothing. They proudly ride in chauffeured transportation. Despite the dismal public approval ratings of even the best Congresses of the past century, members revel in their imaginary, and certainly unearned, “elevated” status and the titles they hold (about the steep price they pay for all this “glory,” more later).
To review, most of the people are average, and half again that many are below average. That explains why so many of them work hard to get politicians elected and re-elected who really ought to be hunted down and hanged like the horse thieves they are. Yet folks - - including some pretty smart folks from the above-average category - - not only work to get them into office and keep them there, they argue among themselves about which ones are “better” than others. Folks, they are ALLl our enemies, they are all scumbags, how can one scumbag be “better” than another? They all work to rob us blind and bind our wrists and ankles, after they’ve conquered our pocketbooks.
Back to the price paid for “glory.” Nearly every politician knows, going in, that (s)he will be “owned” by somebody or some interest, maybe even an unseen “hand.” Though they all spew rhetoric about how they are serving Tennesseans (New Yorkers, Texans, Georgians, Floridians, Californians) and working for their people’s betterment, what they all DO - - save one - - is look out for the folks who fund their survival and pump money into their private coffers. They sell their SOULS, that’s what they do.
That’s why they HAVE to be propagandists. They HAVE to FOOL the people in order to get the votes. And they HAVE to pass the legislation their special interests demand. It’s a little like prostitution except that, in prostitution, the person getting screwed also gets paid. In politics, conversely, the person getting screwed - - YOU and ME - - does the PAYING, while watching somebody else enjoy multiple orgasms. It’s unmitigated insanity when seen in its purest form.
Note: I wrote “save one.”
That refers to Texas Representative Dr. Ron Paul. He’s a maverick, a voice in the wilderness and, though he speaks the unvarnished truth, and has unwaveringly for the 14 years I’ve followed him, they tolerate him because it’s so easy to marginalize him and portray him as a fringe radical. I’m surprised, frankly, that he hasn’t met the same fate George Hansen and James Traficant met. Or, heaven forbid, Vince Foster.
Presidents are infinitely worse. They are more visible, they are more powerful, they are more destructive and they are more dangerous. Though the current holder of that office is an ineligible foreign-born imposter, it’s apparent that neither the Congress nor the Courts intend to do anything to abrogate the Constitutional usurpation. Alert observers have known that since we watched the Supreme Court Chief Justice intentionally swear in a man all nine knew was ineligible. Like all other government figureheads, the robed nine of the Supreme Court are owned as well. If that wasn’t apparent before January 20th, it was made indelibly clear on that day. The three-dozen-plus lawsuits now floating around the system challenging eligibility will all fail. The Supreme Court has already “said” so with its actions. Every judge in the country knows Justice Roberts knew the truth when he swore Obama in. The message is clear. This man is not to be touched.
Using the current occupant of the White House for the discussion - - any other would do - - let’s take a closer look. For awhile, earlier in his reign, he spoke to the nation nearly every day. He delivers commencement speeches to graduating classes at colleges and universities. He speaks to the military on occasion. He gives speeches at all manner of corporate and other gatherings. No one man could possibly write all those speeches, even if he worked at it full time. Somebody writes them. Who?
Well, there is a platoon of full-time speech writers, supported by a staff of researchers and administrators. Obama’s talent (and therefore usefulness) is that he can read tele-prompters smoother and more convincingly than any other president ever has. The speech writers write speeches that convey what the speech writers are told the speeches must impart. Obama reads what is put before him but has no say-so and no edit power. He, like members of Congress and the Supreme Court, sold his soul for money and status and, in his case, the biggest status position in the world. What he likely hasn’t figured out yet is that when he’s finished the missions they assign him, they’ll dump him like used garbage, as they did Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. If assassinating him will serve some significant purpose for them, then they’ll JFK him. And they won’t bat an eye.
The translation I’m sure some have detected in the revelations above is that there is, indeed, a very massive conspiracy in the federal government. Oh, not all play major or even willing roles in it, but they are all involved to greater or lesser degree. The people who own the majority of Senators and Congressmen, and all the Supreme Court Justices, also own all the key players in the mainstream media. Once you understand that, then it’s a bit easier to understand (and accept) that the fictitious events of September 11th, 2001, were sold to the world via a very impressive - - but flawed - - movie-studio production.
Three buildings in the World Trade Center collapsed by controlled demolitions that day. There were multiple explosions at and inside the Pentagon. A bunch of people died. The scenes on the streets of Manhattan were, for the most part, real. The scene outside the Pentagon was real. Beyond those facts, however, everything else the world was sold that day, and since, is pure fiction.
There were no 19 Muslim hijackers. No Flight 77 hit the Pentagon. In fact, there has never been an American Airlines Flight 77 listed on any of their flight schedules, before or since (same with Flight 11). No Flight 93 had brave passengers who confronted the non-existent Muslim hijackers.
There was no failure in our air defense systems, because there were no errant planes to set it into motion. No air traffic controller was confused nor made any mistakes. No military commander was relieved nor even reprimanded, nor was any other military or government employee. There were not military air exercises that day that deployed nearly our entire Air Force and left only 14 fighters protecting the Continental United States. To even suggest such an asinine blunder is ludicrous.
The alleged air exercises were as fake as the computer images of airplane silhouettes that were super-imposed upon video footage of MODEL twin towers IN A STUDIO (that is the only possible explanation for camera angles from nonexistent stabilized positions higher than the Twin Towers). The planes and the explosions were added using computer-generated imagery.
But trying to tell people all that is like trying to tell someone (s)he is “average” or “trash.”
Why is that? Because it’s all “in the eye (and mind) of the beholder.”
“Because I KNOW what I SAW.”
Do you? Indeed you do, and nobody’s going to tell YOU any different, are they? Your government and the “independent” media wouldn’t lie to you, now would they? No, not politicians, never in a million years.

"I have been kicked out of better places than this" is the slightly pathetic thing to say as you leave. If it happens once, it happens. Twice might be bad luck. Thrice starts to sound like a habit. When it gets to dozens there have to be reasons, good reasons. When you surpass 100 times of the same thing happening to you over hundreds of years, you might wanna take a good, long look in the mirror and admit you are doing something wrong.
The records are out there in the history books. It just out of fashion to notice these things. If you do take notice, you are liable to get abused for your pains. But I think I am beyond the point of caring about that, so here goes.....

The meaning of belief
My personal definition of belief: Acceptance of something without absoluteness of proof.
To establish a common ground for the general concept of belief, I hold to the common usage of the term from the American Heritage dictionary:
1.) The mental act, condition, or habit of placing trust or confidence in a person or thing; faith.
2.) Mental acceptance or conviction in the truth or actuality of something.
3.) Something believed or accepted as true; especially, a particular tenet, or a body of tenets, accepted by a group of persons.
In most instances, one can replace the word "believe" with the word "think". For example:
"I believe it will rain tonight."
can transpose into:
"I think it will rain tonight."
Beliefs requires no external evidence whatsoever (examples: belief in ghosts, gods, astrology, etc.) The path of knowledge requires no reliance on beliefs (examples: the observation that the earth orbits the sun and airplanes fly, etc. appears regardless of whether you believe in them or not.) However, the path towards knowledge requires external verification (observation and testing) whereas the path of belief does not. The path towards workable knowledge (facts) must agree with nature if we wish to utilize it. The path of belief requires no agreement with nature at all (although it might coincide with it).
Unfortunately, the usual practice of thinking involves the combination of beliefs with theory and factual knowledge . Most people tend to believe in what they think of as facts and knowledge, including perhaps the most rational people of all-- scientists and philosophers.
Consider the following: Regardless of how strongly one has attached beliefs to scientific facts, no matter how religious the disposition of a scientist, there has never appeared a single workable theory or scientific fact that required the concept of a god or superstitious idea. Not a single workable mathematical equation contains a symbol for a "creator." There occurs not the slightest evidence for ghosts in our machines or in our bodies. Even the most ardent non-believers can live their lives in complete accord with nature and live as long as the most fanatical believer. In spite of the temporary mental comfort that belief might bring, (as do drugs) then what purpose can belief serve in the establishment of useful knowledge about the world?
I find it interesting to observe the state of belief in people. They most always see the problems of fanatical belief above them, but they never accept the disbelief of those below them. Believers always retain just the right amount of belief, it seems, and they unconsciously put themselves in a kind of self-centered, subjective dogma. I contend that most of us do not own beliefs of every kind and, indeed, we disbelieve more than we believe. Just as some believers have fewer beliefs than others, non-believers simply sit at the bottom of the scale. If you can, temporarily, put yourself outside of your own beliefs, you can question why you dismiss the beliefs of others, while perhaps understanding why non-believers dismiss yours.
People have slaughtered each other in wars, inquisitions, and political actions for centuries and still kill each other over beliefs in religions, political ideologies, and philosophies. These belief-systems, when stated as propositions, may appear mystical, and genuine to the naive, but when confronted with a testable bases from reason and experiment, they fail miserably. I maintain that beliefs create more social problems than they solve and that beliefs, and especially those elevated to faith, produce the most destructive potential to the future of humankind.
Why does religious belief create such monstrous atrocities? Because religion expresses everything into terms of belief, faith, and absolutes, without need for reason or even understanding. Religion puts reality, morality, love, happiness and desire in a supernatural realm inaccessible to the mind of man.
How can humans ever achieve peace when their religious scripts has their god condoning war and violence, while man must accept the superstitious belief that their unknowable god does this for mysterious reasons, forever beyond the comprehension of man? How can you understand the physics of the universe if you believe that an unfathomable supernatural agent created everything just a few thousand years ago?
How can you live a full happy life if your religion denies the nature of sex, desire, and mind? How can you have workable government if you believe laws derive from an incomprehensible super-being? How can you have the future of the planet or your grand children if you believe that supernatural predestination will end the world?
If, instead, we taught our children about beliefs and how they infect the mind and the dangers they can produce, society would have little need for censoring ideas. For without believers, there would be no one to believe them and the violence and fantasy portrayed by their fictions could only represent just that-- fictions.
"Don't believe anything. Regard things on a scale of probabilities. The things that seem most absurd, put under 'Low Probability', and the things that seem most plausible, you put under 'High Probability'. Never believe anything. Once you believe anything, you stop thinking about it."
--Robert A. Wilson
As limited humans, we do not possess absolute knowledge. Our perceptions and information comes to us incomplete. When we look, touch and measure an object, for example, we only observe part of its totality. Belief, on the other hand, can produce the illusion that we understand without limitations.
Eliminating concepts of beliefs, at least puts us closer to the range of our perceptions. We inherit mortal limitations, we cannot know with absolute certainly about the external world; we cannot completely remove doubt about our conclusions. Many philosophers and scientists have come to this same observation. Doubt leaves the door open for further investigation. Intransigent belief puts a mental barrier to further knowledge.
Desire comes to us as a natural feeling. As biological animals, we cannot avoid desires. We desire food, shelter, freedom of expression, etc. As exploratory animals, we humans use our minds as a tool to help satisfy the desires within us. With reflection and thought, we learn the limits to our desires. Eating too much, for example, can lead to limited heath and the prevention of satisfying other desires.
By understanding the consequences of desire, we can avoid the excesses and blockages of desire. To express and satisfy our desires (sex, feelings, hunger, etc.) provides a human need. And if we do not satisfy our natural needs, then severe consequences can result.
Sadly, many of our belief-systems put a stranglehold on our natural instinctive desires. If a belief-system teaches that "sex is evil," "only godly belief will help you," or suppresses expression and communication, we may turn depraved, depressed, or violent.
Believers many times express desire indirectly in terms of hope, a form of wishful thinking. Indeed faith hinges on the requirement of hope and ignorance. Hope without an adequate method of achieving our desires can lead to debilitating disappointment and sorrow. I can only imagine the number of tragedies that have occurred from failures due to excessive wishful thinking. Instead of relying on faith and hope, we might analyze our desires and use our knowledge and creative minds to find a way of satisfying them.
No, I don't believe my own words
And neither should you. But I do ask questions, and because you've read this far, and even if you strongly disagree, you must ask yourself this: Which method works best: acting on beliefs or acting on knowledge? If you have difficulty answering this question, then perhaps your beliefs prevent you from acknowledging the obvious.
This text presents points of views based from my (and others) experiences, observations, and research about the thought process. I do not present them as beliefs but rather as an investigation into the mechanism of belief. If any of my statements prove false, then they will show simply that, and subject to further revision. Disowning beliefs does not guarantee "truth" or accuracy, only a method to help clear away superstitions and falsehoods.
Beliefs and faiths represent a type of mental activity that produces an unnecessary and dangerous false sense of trust and wrongful information (thinking coupled with the feeling of 'truth'). Faith rarely agrees with the world around us. History has shown that beliefs and faith, of the most intransigent kind, have served as the trigger for tragic violence and destruction and sustained the ignorance of people.
Replacing beliefs with predictive thoughts based on experience and evidence provide a means to eliminate intransigence and dangerous superstitious thought.
Beliefs and faiths do not establish "truths" or facts. It does not matter how many people believe or for how many centuries they have believed it. It does not matter how reverent or important people think of them, if it does not agree with evidence, then it simply cannot have any validity to the outside world. All things we know about the world, we can express without referring to a belief. Even at its most benign level, beliefs can act as barriers to further understanding.
I present a very simple observation at the limits of ignorance and knowledge: If you don't know about something and you submit it to nothing but belief, it will likely prove false; if you know about something, then you don't need to believe it, because you know it. Between ignorance and knowledge you have the uncertainties about the world, and the best way to handle uncertainties involves thinking in terms of probabilities. So what use does belief have?
If you have awareness of abstracting, you can then begin to replace believing with thinking.
Instead of owning beliefs, we can utilize hypothesis, theory, and models to make predictions about things in the world. In its semantic form, we can replace "belief" words with "thinking" words which better describes the formation of our ideas. We can use our imaginations to create new hypothesis towards desired goals. The wonder of the universe gives us a powerful feeling of inquisitiveness. Certainly we will fail sometimes, but disowning beliefs allows us to correct our mistakes without submitting our ideas to years or centuries of traditional time consuming barriers.
Theory coupled with imagination can yield inventive thoughts and points of views. By further understanding our language and eliminating unworkable essence words, we can communicate without resorting to preconceived ideas based on past beliefs. Our feeling of wonder about the universe provides us the fuel for exploration; how much more magnificent the results from useful thoughts than ones based on faith.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes:
Moral certainty is always a sign of cultural inferiority. The more uncivilized the man, the surer he is that he knows precisely what is right and what is wrong. All human progress, even in morals, has been the work of men who have doubted the current moral values, not of men who have whooped them up and tried to enforce them. The truly civilized man is always skeptical and tolerant, in this field as in all others. His culture is based on "I am not too sure." ~ H.L. Mencken
Faith is belief without evidence in what is told by one who speaks without knowledge, of things without parallel.~ Ambrose Bierce
All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man: its one permanent object is to oppress him and cripple him. If it be aristocratic in organization, then it seeks to protect the man who is superior only in law against the man who is superior in fact; if it be democratic, then it seeks to protect the man who is inferior in every way against both. One of its primary functions is to regiment men by force, to make them as much alike as possible and as dependent upon one another as possible, to search out and combat originality among them. All it can see in an original idea is potential change, and hence an invasion of its prerogatives. The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are. ~ H.L. Mencken
Each nation knowing it has the only true religion and the only sane system of government, each despising all the others, each an ass and not suspecting it.~ Mark Twain
I believe that religion, generally speaking, has been a curse to mankind — that its modest and greatly overestimated services on the ethical side have been more than overborne by the damage it has done to clear and honest thinking. ~ H.L. Mencken
Beware the man of one book.~ Saint Thomas Aquinas
A man full of faith is simply one who has lost (or never had) the capacity for clear and realistic thought. He is not a mere ass; he is actually ill. Worse, he is incurable, for disappointment, being essentially an objective phenomenon, cannot permanently affect his subjective infirmity. His faith takes on the virulence of a chronic infection. What he usually says, in substance, is this: "Let us trust in God, who has always fooled us in the past. ~ H.L. Mencken
“He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors” ~ Thomas Jefferson
Man is certainly stark mad: he cannot make a worm, yet he will make gods by the dozen.~ Michel de Montaigne
I have seldom met an intelligent person whose views were not narrowed and distorted by religion.~ James Buchanan
All natural institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.~ Thomas Paine
The compulsion to do good is an innate American trait. Only North Americans seem to believe that they always should, may, and actually can choose somebody with whom to share their blessings. Ultimately this attitude leads to bombing people into the acceptance of gifts.~ Ivan Illich
I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.~ Galileo Galilei
When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? It is because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.~ J. Krishnamurthi
The modern conservative is engaged in one man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.~ John K. Galbraith
I like your Christ; I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.~ Mohandas Gandhi
I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.~ Stephen Roberts
I have examined all of the known superstitions of the world and I do not find in our superstitions of Christianity one redeeming feature. They are all founded on fables and mythology. Christianity has made one-half the world fools and the other half hypocrites. ~ Unknown
If we'd been born where they were born and taught what they were taught, we would believe what they believe.~ A church sign in Northern Ireland
"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, and the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters."
It's an oral history. It was passed down, word-of-mouth, father to son, from Adam to Seth, from Seth to Enos, from Enos to Cainan, for 40 generations, a growing, changing, story, it was handed down, word-of-mouth, father to son. Until Moses finally gets it down on lambskin. But lambskins wear out, and need to be recopied. Copies of copies of copies of copies of copies of copies of copies of an oral history passed down through 40 generations. From Hebrew it's translated into Arabic, from Arabic to Latin, from Latin to Greek, from Greek to Russian, from Russian to German, from German to an old form of English that you could not read.
Through 400 years of evolution of the English language to the book we have today, which is: a translation of a translation of a translation of a translation of a translation of a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of an oral history passed down through 40 generations.
You can't put a grocery list through that many translations, copies, and re-telling, and not expect to have some big changes in the dinner menu when the kids make it back from Kroger's. And yet people are killing each other over this written word.
Here's a tip: If you're killing someone in the name of God — you're missing the message

Cheney speech reportedly refers to 9/11 25 times
Isn't that terrorism?
Like Miami 7, New York Terror Plot Funded And Uncovered By The FBI
How convienent the day before Cheney holds a press conference talking about how TORTURE helped keep us "safe" from "terrorists", a terror cell gets busted in NYC.
We are told that four small- time black drug dealers decided to shoot down airliners, and bomb Jewish synagogues. Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Snyder said the defendants were "eager to bring death to Jews." And he quoted one as saying: "I would like to get a synagogue."
It seems that the Jihadists bought C-4 for blowing up two Jewish Temples, and a rocket to shoot down an airliner. The four bought the equipment from a FBI undercover agent. Three of the defendants are U.S. citizens, and one is of Haitian descent, officials said. Acting U.S. Attorney Lev L. Dassin said the defendants planned to detonate a car filled with plastic explosives to destroy the synagogues.
Yup, its a set-up. We have 4 black patsies, the usual "Eternal Victims" being a target of a "hate-crime" at their synagogue, and the usual FBI "Informant" on the inside of the terror group. Yep, it all looks legit!
We have one group who is always set up as the perp, the other group who never passes up the opportunity to be a victim (Again), and the other group (FBI) who can never manage to stay out of "informing" the terrorists.
How does one go from peddling a bag of weed, to shooting down an airliner?
Quite possibly the best website I have seen so far.
Columbia Space Shuttle Investigation Cost $175 Million. Challenger Investigation Cost $100 Million. 9/11 Investigation Only Got $15 Million
Yup, as you can see, the Govt really wanted to know who was behind 9/11. They went ALL OUT for that investigation. How did that investigation turn out?
I guess they just couldn't find the money to fund the 9/11 investigation......But the Govt funneled $2 Trillion to the banks. Or better yet, we could probably put troops on the border to stop all the drug smuggling.
Whoops!!! It appears most of our troops are deployed in Iraq still looking for Saddam's "Nookular bombs" and WMD's that have yet to be found. But I hear the stock in Halliburton and the Carlyle Group is doing great! The other half of the troops are in Afghanistan looking for......OOPS!!! There is NOBODY looking for Bin Laden at the moment in Afghanistan but I hear the Opium crops are coming in really well now. Damn near back to the production levels of 90% of the worlds overall supply. Whew, good thing we got THAT under control.
WHY YOUR CHILDREN ARE BEING KILLED AND CRIPPLED IN AFGHANISTAN!
Back to Bin Laden for a moment, I don't know what the statute of limitations are on "terrorist activity", but the FBI better hurry and charge Bin Laden with 9/11 because it's only been 8 years and they have yet to charge Bin Laden with 9/11. Maybe someone here can help me with this one, I can't figure it out. You would think they would have some CONCRETE evidence by now being we launched 2 gigantic wars based on Bin Laden & 9/11 along with Saddam's "Nookular Bombs".......EXCEPT that Bin Laden was not charged with 9/11 because there was NO EVIDENCE linking him to 9/11 and I think it is safe to say Saddam DID NOT have "Nookular bombs" or WMD's. Makes you think, huh??
Lets visit the FBI's website and the 10 most wanted for an update on Bin Laden:
Nope, he is still only wanted for the embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. Nothing about 9/11, Pentagon attack, New York or the World Trade Center attacks. Quite strange indeed. One would think that the Govt would really be looking for or at least putting a case together to charge him after 8 years.....I mean, if 3000 Americans were murdered and TRILLIONS of $$$ spent on wars, not to mention all the other costs of damages to New York, the economy, the Pentagon.......You would think SOMEBODY would be looking for Bin Laden.
I did hear a internet rumor that the World Trade Centers were leased and insured 6 weeks before the attacks, but the insurance would not pay unless the towers were destroyed by Terrorism. Hmmm..... But in all fairness, Larry "two sheds" Silverstein who leased the WTC got paid by the insurance companies and profited $500 Million from a $25 Million initial investment. Quite convenient that those drunk, wacky, strip club going, Koran leaving, Arab terrorists who flunked flight school (could not fly a single engine Cessna) hijacked two 757 jets with box cutters and "miraculously" piloted 4 jets, 3 of which said JUMBO JETS hit their targets DEAD CENTER. Now I dont know about you, but I think learning to fly a JET would be preceded by PASSING a flying course of some sort. But that's just my simple, country folk logic. Unless Allah is something special, someone needs to explain this miracle to me.
But I hear the Taliban are now in Pakistan. This week, Pakistani officials released stunning figures of the civilian death count in the American drone war: almost 700 innocent men, women and children killed so far -- as opposed to 14 actual, wanted extremist leaders. As the Pakistani paper The News reports:
Of the 60 cross-border predator strikes carried out by the Afghanistan-based American drones in Pakistan between January 14, 2006 and April 8, 2009, only 10 were able to hit their actual targets, killing 14 wanted al-Qaeda leaders, besides perishing 687 innocent Pakistani civilians. The success percentage of the US predator strikes thus comes to not more than six per cent....
Now there's change you can believe in (to coin a phrase)! In just a few months in office, Obama has managed to raise the average kill rate achieved by Bush from 32 to 38 per month. So much for Hope & Change, I guess all we have now is hope because there has been no change I can see.
There is no Al Qaeda in Pakistan, just like there were no WMD's in Iraq and Bin Laden was not responsible for 9/11. If he were, the FBI would have CHARGED HIM with it.
No credible evidence of Al Qaeda presence in Pakistan, says FO
"Ana raicha Al Qaeda" is colloquial for "I'm going to the toilet". A very common and widespread use of the word "Al-Qaeda" in different Arab countries in the public language is for the toilet bowl. This name comes from the Arabic verb "Qa'ada" which mean "to sit", pertinently, on the "Toilet Bowl". In most Arabs homes there are two kinds of toilets: "Al-Qaeda" also called the "Hamam Franji" or foreign toilet, and "Hamam Arabi" or "Arab toilet" which is a hole in the ground. Lest we forget it, the potty used by small children is called "Ma Qa'adia" or "Little Qaeda".
So, if you were forming a terrorist group, would you call yourself, "The Toilet"?
Remember this: The same morons who said that Bin Laden was responsible for 9/11, that Saddam had "Nookular Bombs", and that 19 Arab Muslims did 9/11 are the SAME BUNCH that are now telling us that Iran has "Nookular Bombs".
Iran actually signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. They have a Nuclear power plant, which they are allowed to have. Not to mention, Article IV of the treaty says that not only are they allowed to have a Nuclear power plant, the U.S. is supposed to HELP them build it!
Iran had voluntarily suspended its research and development of enrichment technology on a temporary basis as a show of good faith. Iran engaged E.U. member states, but when nothing came of the talks and negotiations over Iran’s program stalled, Iran resumed its activities, which it had every right to do under the Treaty.
Iran has in fact appealed to the U.S. to cooperate in making the Middle East a nuclear-free zone. But that would mean a shift in U.S. policy towards Israel and a cessation of its financial, military, and diplomatic support to the nuclear-armed Jewish State of Israel. So the proposal was rejected because we can't have that! We gotta support the "Chosen People" no matter what, even though there is NO TREATY between the U.S. and Israel of ANY KIND.
Israel is the one who refuses to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Why? Because they would have to admit their Nuclear weapons program actually exists.
Please spare me the "Islamic terrorists" trying to wipe the "Chosen People" off the map.
Then take the info I just posted and let it sink in as to whom ACTUALLY has Nuclear Weapons. Israel crying wolf!?!? lol!!! It would appear so.
So, the next time Faux News starts screaming about how Iran is threatening to "wipe Israel off the map" with their "Nookular Bombs", laugh at them and turn off the TV because now we all know which country in the Middle East actually has the NUCLEAR WEAPONS.
FOX wants to burn your kids Alive!
I heard our awesome Main-stream Media had solved 9/11 in 42 seconds after the 2nd plane hit the WTC. Lets take a 2nd look at that hilarious piece of evidence.
Banks Use Life Insurance to Fund Bonuses
This all ties into the Govt owning you, and issuing a bond on you. This is all part of the same scam. I believe Wal-Mart also ran into some problems with these policies years ago with highly over-insured door greeters in their stores.
It's also why the insurance companies got the bailout money so fast, and the car industry got screwed.
When are people going to wake up and realize that "Free Market Capitalism" is only designed to bleed every red cent from you and your labor efforts. When you die, your company gets the payoff!
This is another example of why we're in the financial crisis we're in...this is the first generation that made money just by having money and "investing" it...prior generations and civilizations actually produced goods and delivered services to earn money...we're such geniuses that we found out how to make money without producing or delivering anything...it all rolls along great until the "bottom peg gets pulled out"...then there's nothing to stop the tumble, no hard assets, no inventory, no land...nothing with real value except the next level of irrational market gains...and so everything tumbles through to the next level down looking for something real to stop the freefall... this insurance thing is the best example of "no asset gains" yet...generate revenue when your employees die...this country is in serious trouble...
Sooooo! If the company's trend is down we can look forward to an increase in the number of crashed charter flights carrying second level executives to a sales conference? I don't like the sound of this. I don't have a great deal of faith in depending on ethical behavior in people whose main motive is profit.
The Amegy example is not uncommon. The bank fired a ssick worker, ended his benefits, he died soon after, and they cashed in for millions leaving his widow and kids with nothing. Someone please tell me how this could be considered ethical behavior? I didn't realize BoA was the biggest user of this scheme. I'll be sure to vote with my feet and move my money to a less mercenary institution ASAP. A man with a brain tumor voluntarily consented to allow his employer to enrich themselves upon his death? Yeah right.

What God are Christians actually referring to when they say “FEAR THE LORD”? If love and fear are polar opposites of emotions, and if Jesus is the model of the highest good, pure love, then Christians must be referencing the fear based god, Satan. There is no reason to fear love, so we should “FEAR THE LORD SATAN”.
Fundamentalist Christianity is a fear based cult worshipping the anti-god Satan. Is it any wonder why fundamentalists universally hate dancing, lovemaking and a free society but love war, abstinence, and restrictions to free thought?
Fundamentalists have one common trait, they absolutely insist that all members rigidly adhere to doctrine. Any person joining a religious cult must suspend their mind, it is the price of membership. Swallowing religious dogma causes gullibility because the mind is put into suspended animation, the individual possessed religious memes, the mind put in a memetic trance.
The more irrational the doctrine of a fundamentalist cult, the deeper the psychic pit the mind is thrown. Unable to reason, the mind operates in absolutes, cult members universally believe they are absolutely correct. This invariably leads to militancy and war, death the only means of escape for a spirit trapped in a mind boxed in by doctrine. Once indoctrinated, the mind is easily manipulated by cult leaders and clever politicians who can easily lead the dead minds into war.
Humans steeped in myth and doctrine have very limited awareness. They blindly adhere to false doctrines and misinterpretations as truth. They childishly believe myth to be literal. They pray to Jesus, Krishna, Buddha, angels, saints, or personalities of particular deities. Religions teach that if you want a certain thing, pray to a specific deity because you’ll have the best chance of actualizing your wish.

For those who think I was crazy for saying that YOU are a corporation, property of the United States Govt....
Here is a little something extra to think about: I always wondered when I was a kid and I saw the City Limit sign when entering a town, it said this: "Opelousas Corp. Limits, population 18,746"
I always wondered what that meant "Corp. Limits". Now I know.
Today the process for granting charters is determined by the type of government of the state in question. In monarchies, charters are still often a royal charter given by the Crown or the state authorities acting on behalf of the Crown. In federations, the granting of charters may be within the jurisdiction of the lower level of government such as a state or province.
Yup, the United States is nothing more than a Crown colony. What do all of the countries have in common in this article? They were/are all Crown colonies at one time or another!
The Municipal Corporation is responsible for water supply, records of births and deaths (delegated from Central Govt Birth and Death Registration Act), drainage, sewage removal, fire brigade service, gardens and maintenance of buildings.
Remember the part about your name being in all CAPS on your Drivers License, Passport, Social Security Card and any other Govt issued ID? It says that the Municipal Corporation of responsible for records of birth and death. Translation: We have to know who is born in order to issue the Birth Certificate, Social Security Card and your Govt ID's. They have to keep track of how many "Slaves" are eligible to pay into the system. Also part of the bond issuing process....
I still think we operate under the Uniform Commercial Code, this article just makes me think it even more.
“Registration” comes from Latin “rex, regis” etc. meaning regal. So think about what occurs to
whatever you ‘register’ - you hand legal title over to the Crown (Queen of England).
The BAR Association is a great example. BAR stands for British Accreditation Registry.
When you register anything with the public, it releases legal title to the government corporation and leaves you with only equitable title - the right to use, not own, and for that use you will pay a ‘use’ tax which is every tax, be it income, sin, sales, property, etc. as opposed to lawful taxes, excise and impost.
So that it doesn’t appear that the government now owns the property which you have registered they put it in a name which so much resembles your own that you won’t suspect it, however, the NAME is owned by the government. If you choose rather to record your legal title to your property with the public, you maintain your status as Title Owner.
This is one of the most important things you can ever learn for the sake of your commercial affairs.The best example of the effects of registration is the birth certificate. A bankrupt entity - city, state/province, country - cannot operate in commerce. So how do they manage? Since USA/CA have been bankrupt for decades, having no substance such as gold and silver to back it, the only asset it has are men and women and our labor. We are the collateral for the interest on the loan of the World Bank.
Each of us is registered, via the application for a birth certificate. The Treasury issues a bond on the birth certificate and the bond is sold at a securities exchange and bought by the FRB/BoC, which then uses it as collateral to issue bank notes. The bond is held in trust for the Feds at the Depository Trust Corporation. We are the surety on said bonds. Our labour/energy is then payable at some future date.
Hence we become the ‘transmitting utility’ for the transmission of energy. The USG/CAG, in order to provide necessary goods and services, created a commercial bond (promissory note), by pledging the property, labor, life and body of its citizens, as payment for the debt (bankruptcy). This commercial bond made chattel (property) out of us all. We became nothing more than ‘human resources’ and collateral for the debt. This was without our knowledge and/or our consent, via the filing (registration) of our birth certificates.
When moms apply for a birth certificate, the application is registered. The legal title of her baby is then transferred from mom to the State. Mom is left with equitable title of her baby whom she can use for a fee - a ‘use tax’ - and since the property does not belong to her, she has to treat it in the manner which the owner wants.
Colonel Edward Mandell House is attributed with giving a very detailed outline of the plans to be
implemented to enslave the American people. He stated, in a private meeting with Woodrow Wilson (President 1913 - 1921).
Very soon, every American will be required to register their biological property (that's you and your children) in a national system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will affect our security as a charge back for our fiat paper currency.
Every American will be forced to register or suffer being able to work and earn a living. They will be our chattels (property) and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions. Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading (Birth Certificate) to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, secured by their pledges.
They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two should figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability. After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debts to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges.
This will inevitably reap us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor to this fraud, which we will call “Social Insurance.” Without realizing it, every American will be unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly. The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and we will employ the high office (presidency) of our dummy corporation (USA) to foment this plot against America. - Colonel Edward Mandell House
Your Govt LOVES you. They prove it every day.
High Fructose Corn Syrup. Until the 1970s most of the sugar we ate came from sucrose derived from sugar beets or sugar cane. Then sugar from corn--corn syrup, fructose, dextrose, dextrine and especially high fructose corn syrup (HFCS)--began to gain popularity as a sweetener because it was much less expensive to produce. High fructose corn syrup can be manipulated to contain equal amounts of fructose and glucose, or up to 80 percent fructose and 20 percent glucose. Thus, with almost twice the fructose, HFCS delivers a double danger compared to sugar. High Fructose Corn Syrup’s been found to suppress the secretion of leptin and insulin while failing to suppress the secretion of ghrelin, and thus, short-circuiting the body’s metabolism. Your brain never gets the message that you’re full and keeps receiving one that tells it you’re hungry. American obesity became epidemic with the floodof HFCS into our food in the 80s.
Here is another thing that nobody knows much about: Vitamin D is required in almost all of your food by the FDA. Vitamin D is a steroid with immuno-suppressive properties when elevated. I am guessing it is "elevated" due to the FDA requiring it in everything we eat and drink. So in elevated doses, it causes the immune system to be suppressed. Hmmm.....
Well, go on down to the Doc and get your pills from the Pharma Lobbyist. We all know the Govt and Corporations have been in bed together for centuries. Its not hard to draw that line from the Govt requiring things to be in your food that suppress the immune system.......to the doctors that really never cure anything, they just give you pills. I would say (after much research) that most people are always sick because of an overgrowth of L-form bacteria in their bodies due to a high level of Vitamin D supplements, not the real kind you get from the sun.
This is childrens toothpaste. Same ingredients, same effect. But our great Govt knows it has to hook us early, so they market it with CARTOON characters. Nice touch.
Below, we have SpongeBob toothpaste. Nickelodeon is the corporation that owns this brand.
Below is more High Fructose Corn Syrup. It's in almost everything. Look in your cabinets at home and the ingredents...
And once again, they get a CARTOON chracter to market it for them.
Ingredients in Bread. Too much stuff for my taste, but Corporations found out by putting tons of shit in your food, they could make it stay 2 extra weeks on the shelf. That is BIG $$$ in their world. PROFITS above all else, they will kill you slowly in order to make an extra $5.
Below is what I like to see. ONE ingredient!! BROWN SUGAR. Like it should be.
