Third Way and One World Order

Did you think that the information regarding the Third Way was interesting? Since that was just the beginning, here is a little bit more for you to noodle on for the weekend.

The following is the introduction to a memo that was put out by the Third Way to "Interested Parties" and written by Matt Bennett, Vice President for Public Affairs and Michael Earls, Culture Project Policy Advisor

"SUBJECT: Conservative Abuses of Power

When they took over the reins of federal power, conservatives in Congress and the White House campaigned on promises to “restore the bonds of trust between the people and their elected representatives” (“The Republican Contract with America”) and to “restore honor and dignity to the Oval Office” (Bush 2000). But in the last five years, those same leaders have abused their positions of power in a manner more naked and profound than any Washington has seen since at least the Teapot Dome scandal in the 1920s. This has left even their fellow conservatives up in arms – John Dean, President Nixon’s White House Counsel, has recently published books detailing these abuses entitled “Conservatives Without Conscience” and “Worse Than Watergate.”

Third Way recommends that progressives use “abuse of power” as a theme to unify a range of issues." [bold added]

With this memo in mind, here is what the online Wikipedia states about the Third Way.

"The Third Way is a term that has been used to describe a political position which attempts to transcend left-wing and right-wing politics by advocating a mix of some left-wing and right-wing policies.[1] Third Way approaches are commonly viewed as representing a centrist compromise between capitalism and socialism, or between market liberalism and democratic socialism. However, proponents of third way philosophies often claim that the third way represents a synthesis of these competing viewpoints, distinct from and superior to both of its sources, rather than simply a compromise or mixture.[2] This claim is embodied in the alternative description of the Third Way as the Radical center.

Past invocations of a political 'third way', in this sense, have included the Fabian Socialism, Distributism, Technocracy (bureaucratic), Keynesian economics, Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal, and Harold Macmillan's 1950s One Nation Conservatism....

...The Third Way rejects both socialism and laissez-faire approaches to economic governance, but chiefly stresses technological development, education, and competitive mechanisms to pursue economic progress and governmental objectives.[6] One of its central aims is to protect the modern welfare state through reforms that maintain its economic integrity...

A leading defender of the spread of Third Way influence in modern democracies has been British sociologist Anthony Giddens. Giddens regularly expounds on Third Way philosophy through contributions to progressive policy think tank Policy Network."

What is the Policy Network? It's connected to the Third Way through Anthony Giddens. Here is the definition from Wikipedia.

"Policy Network is a London-based international think tank which is dedicated to promoting progressive policies and the renewal of social democracy. It was established in December 2000 with the support of heads of government including Tony Blair, Bill Clinton, Gerhard Schröder, Goran Persson, and Giuliano Amato.

There stated objective is to develop and promote a modern progressive agenda based upon the ideas and experiences of social democratic modernisers. They argue that in order to meet challenges of globalisation, the centre-left needs to embark on a process of permanent renewal...

Its current work programmes include an EU "fit for purpose" in a global age[1]; the politics of climate change[2]; the myths and realities of labour migration[3]; the future of social democracy[4]; and globalisation and social justice...

One of its more prominent projects in recent years concerned the European Social Model. The objective of this research project was to investigate the means by which Europe's various models for welfare states can be adapted to meet 21st century challenges. It has also focused on areas such as economic reform, migration and integration, the environment, progressive government and public service reform." [bold added]

In a link on the Policy Network website, I was able to connect to an article (really a compliation of articles) that discusses many aspects of a One World Order, New World Order, or International Order.

"Global power revisited
The United States in a changing world order

Focusing on the role of the US in a changing world order, this reader brings together "insider" and "outsider" perspectives on three key global challenges: managing the economic and political fallout of the global financial crisis; forging an integrated international security policy based on multilateral cooperation, particularly in Iraq and Afghanistan; and the challenges of climate change, energy security and proliferation for global governance."

The website link for the above informations is Foresight Project.net.

As with anything that runs deep in planning and organizing in government, every link I follow to find out more, gives more insight. Thus, looking into Progressive Governance, I found interesting concepts and language regarding governance following this "financial crisis".

"These developments have huge implications. First and foremost, they present progressive governments and policymakers around the world with the task of re-building an international economic and financial order at a time when the tendency is to focus on state-level solutions. ...

At the same time, as faith in unregulated markets crumbles, progressives urgently need to fill an ideological vacuum which risks being taken over by populists. ... The result is vastly different views on the needed reforms, including the viability and effects of global stimulus plans, the benefits and scope of increased financial regulation, or the measures needed to correct global economic imbalances.

In short, the challenges ahead carry a great opportunity for progressives but also a risk. On the one hand, the strength of modern social-democratic politics has always been to recognise and come to terms with new realities. On the other hand, this “progressive moment” will requires a fundamental overhaul of centre-left policies, recognising not only the urgency and severity of the current crisis, but also the complex relationship between the quest for social justice, the need for economic dynamism and sustainable development in the global age....

The aim of this “handbook of ideas” is to advance this debate by bringing together short policy recommendations...the contributions touch on challenges which governments of all stripes need to address, but which we think are of particular relevance for progressives, in some cases even presenting major dilemmas...

Improving governance of financial markets is ultimately only one component, albeit a crucial one, for building a more equitable and sustainable international order.

Having shaken the foundations of unquestioned belief in free markets, the global crisis has led to growing calls for the state to be a more prominent facilitator of growth.

With levels of unemployment and distress rising, the need for modern social protection policies is greater than ever. Even the most ardent supporters of market-based solutions for social needs are starting to realise that the state will need to play a more active role, as, for instance, the US debate on healthcare illustrates. In this context, what kind of welfare state and social policies should we strive for?" [bold added]

As you read, the memo about conservatives abuse of power must include separate laws for "Progressives", "CentreLeft", and etc because every link that includes more information on the topic, reflects more involvement and "power" by government, or "the state".

Additionally, the increase in the "blame game" by Obama towards the Bush Administration following his inauguration is not acceptable in any level of "leadership". True leadership takes responsibility for the good and the bad as the Bush Administration is now long gone and the Obama Administration is strattling a deficit and new "policies" that is definitely being administered by their own administration.

Partners In "Change": Third Way and Obama

Ever heard of The Third Way? It's time to let you know what it is about.

Here is their About Us intro.

"Third Way is the leading think tank of the moderate wing of the progressive movement. We work with elected officials, candidates, and advocates to develop and advance the next generation of moderate policy ideas. Since our launch in 2005, our policy and communications products as well as our issue trainings have been used extensively in the House and Senate, by governors and by candidates ranging from Barack Obama to those running for Congress."

Notice the name dropping going on in this introduction?!!

Here are some highlights of their "Programs".

Economic Program: a new economic agenda including a new policy framework for the middle class, an agenda for Congress that includes stimulus for the middle class, launching the House Middle Class Working Group and the White House Middle Class Working Task Force, dealing with healthcare, and "Issuing a major study of the decline in public trust in government and the implications for progressive governance which offers the Obama administration and Congress a strategy to restore public trust.

National Security: building a new national security agenda, doing a year-long study for the Obama administration on the handling of terrorism, increasing the size of the Army, "issuing a major new strategy on combating terrorism with Senate Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin", "devising framing guidance for Senate and House members and candidates to establish a new brand on national security", training of the government on national security issues.

The Culture Program: "pioneering a new approach on abortion", to "shore up the gun purchase background check system", using the approach of the Obama campaign on issues like religion, abortion and gay equality, recommending more than 100 specific policy solutions for state and federal lawmakers.

The Third Way Clean Energy Initiative: a major initiative to help choose policy and frame the issues for the leaders, "hosting major national energy forums with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, governors, business leaders and others", "one of the sole progressive groups championing the role of nuclear power".

Leadership: Here is the link to the Board of Trustees Click Here, the link to the staff... Click Here, the link to the Honorary Senate Chairs Click Here, the link to the Honorary House Chairs Click Here.

"ABOUT THIRD WAY: Third Way is the leading think tank of the moderate wing of the progressive movement. We work with elected officials, candidates, and advocates to develop and advance the next generation of moderate policy ideas."

Additionally, I uncovered a presentation from 2000 which I will summarize in my next post.

Summary of Current Economic Events

Here's a summary on the economic current events.

More Utahns turn to government for financial help
July 27th, 2009 @ 10:39am
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The number of Utahns getting financial help from the government has gone up 30 percent since last year.

In May, 6,797 Utah households were on public assistance. A year earlier the number was 5,219.

To qualify for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, a family of three can make no more than $1,050 per month. The state has not increased the income limits since the 1990s.

However, the state is planning to temporarily extend the eligibility time period for help. Starting as early as September, the change would affect residents who have recently been laid off, have essentially no other income and have previously maxed out the 36-month time limit for TANF.

It's not clear how many people the change would affect.

"WASHINGTON -- The number of newly laid-off workers seeking jobless benefits rose last week, though the government said its report again was distorted by the timing of auto plant shutdowns.

Unemployment insurance claims have declined steadily since the spring, but most private economists and the Federal Reserve expect jobs to remain scarce and the unemployment rate to top 10 percent by year-end."
-- Read From Source Here

"The Congressional Budget Office has estimated the proposal now under consideration will cost over 10 years a little more than $1 trillion, depending on the final deal. House Democrats have vowed to find a way to pay for that cost despite an acknowledgement by a Congressional Budget Office official that the deficit will increase $239 billion because of Medicare payments to doctors.

But fully phased-in coverage of Americans under the plan will only occur for six of the 10 years measured by the CBO. That's because the Democratic plan in the House will start collecting revenues in 2011 but won't start providing coverage until 2013 and won't be fully implemented until 2015."

"Though Americans still blame former President George W. Bush for the ailing economy, President Obama faces dropping approval ratings amid doubts that he has a clear plan for fixing the economy."

Back to the Roll of Duct Tape.

Remember when I posted that we could solve a lot of issues with a simple $4.00 (or less) roll of duct tape?

"President Obama stopped short of an apology to Sgt. James Crowley on Friday for saying he "acted stupidly" for arresting black Harvard scholar Henry Lewis Gates Jr., but said he should have chosen his words more carefully.

At an impromptu appearance at the daily White House briefing, Obama said he spoke with Crowley over the phone, and said he wanted to share a beer with Crowley and Gates at the White House.

"Because this has been ratcheting up and I helped contribute to ratcheting it up, I want to make clear that in my choice of words I unfortunately gave an impression that I was maligning the Cambridge Police Department or Sgt. Crowley specifically and I could have calibrated those words differently." -- Read Source Here

A Parable: Dinner with Obama

I'm not sure who the author of this parable is, but it is very applicable.

"Once upon a time, I was invited to the White House for a private dinner with the President. I am a respected businessman, with a factory that produces memory chips for computers and portable electronics. There was some talk that my industry was being scrutinized by the administration, but I paid it no mind. I live in a free country. There's nothing that the government can do to me if I've broken no laws. My wealth was earned honestly, and an invitation to dinner with an American President is an honor.

I checked my coat, was greeted by the Chief of Staff, and joined the President in a yellow dining room. We sat across from each other at a table draped in white linen. The Great Seal was embossed on the china. Uniformed staff served our dinner.

The meal was served, and I was startled when my waiter suddenly reached out, plucked a dinner roll off my plate, and began nibbling it as he walked back to the kitchen.

"Sorry about that," said the President. "Andrew is very hungry."

"I don't appreciate..." I began, but as I looked into the calm brown eyes across from me, I felt immediately guilty and petty. It was just a dinner roll. "Of course," I concluded, and reached for my glass. Before I could, however, another waiter reached forward,20took the glass away and swallowed the wine in a single gulp.

"And his brother Eric is very thirsty." said the President.

I didn't say anything. The President is testing my compassion, I thought. I will play along. I don't want to seem unkind.

My plate was whisked away before I had tasted a bite.

"Eric's children are also quite hungry."

With a lurch, I crashed to the floor. My chair had been pulled out from under me. I stood, brushing myself off angrily, and watched as it was carried from the room.

"And their grandmother can't stand for long."

I excused myself, smiling outwardly, but inside feeling like a fool. Obviously I had been invited to the White House to be sport for some game. I reached for my coat, to find that it had been taken. I turned back to the President.

"Their grandfather doesn't like the cold."

I wanted to shout- that was my coat! But again, I looked at the placid smiling face of my host and decided I was being a poor sport. I spread my hands helplessly and chuckled. Then I felt my hip pocket and realized my wallet was gone. I excused myself and walked to a phone on an elegant side table. I learned shortly that my credit cards had been maxed out, my bank accounts emptied, my retirement and equity portfolios had vanished, and my wife had been thrown out of our home. Apparently, the waiters and their families were moving in. The President hadn't moved or spoken as I learned all this, but finally I lowered the phone into its cradle and turned to face him.

"Andrew's whole family has made bad financial decisions. They haven't planned for retirement, and they need a house. They recently defaulted on a subprime mortgage. I told them they could have your home. They need it more than you do."

My hands were shaking. I felt faint. I stumbled back to the table and knelt on the floor. The President cheerfully cut his meat, ate his steak and drank his wine. I lowered my eyes and stared at the small gray circles on the tablecloth that were water drops.

"By the way," He added, "I have just signed an Executive Order nationalizing your factories. I'm firing you as head of your business. I'll be operating the firm now for the benefit of all mankind. There's a whole bunch of Erics and Andrews out there and they can't come to you for jobs groveling like beggars."

I looked up. The President dropped his spoon into the empty ramekin which had been his crème Brule. He drained the last drops of his wine. As the table was cleared, he lit a cigarette and leaned back in his chair. He stared at me. I clung to the edge of the table as if were a ledge and I were a man hanging over an abyss. I thought of the years behind me, of the life I had lived. The life I had earned with a lifetime of work, risk and struggle. Why was I punished? How had I allowed it to be taken? What game had I played and lost? I looked across the table and noticed with some surprise that there was no game board between us.

What had I done wrong?

As if answering the unspoken thought, the President suddenly cocked his head, locked his empty eyes to mine, and bared a million teeth, chuckling wryly as he folded his hands.

"You should have stopped me at the dinner roll," he said."

Roll of Duct Tape.

Promoting peaceful U.S.-International relations?

"KIEV, Ukraine -- U.S. Vice President Joe Biden chastised Ukraine's political leadership on Wednesday, saying Kiev risks squandering its celebrated Orange Revolution through continuous governmental infighting that has stalemated urgently needed economic reforms....

But in sometimes harsh tones, Mr. Biden said the 2004 revolution, in which pro-democracy protesters overthrew a Russian-backed leadership accused of electoral fraud, was one "whose promise remains to be fulfilled" by Ukraine's current leaders....

U.S. experts on the region expected Mr. Biden to address the issue with leaders only behind closed doors." -- Read More From Source Here

Here is an inexpensive method that is sure to offer outstanding U.S.-International rewards. $4.00 or less will get the Obama administration a pretty good roll of duct tape. Anyone have any better solutions?

Health Care Czar?

Being unsure that Obama won't find some back channel to push his health care legislation/program through, it doesn't surprise me that there is a bit of delay.

"A key House committee on Tuesday indefinitely postponed voting on health care reform legislation after Democratic leaders were unable to line up enough votes from moderate members of their own party.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee canceled the session as it faced serious concerns about the legislation from fiscally conservative Blue Dog Democrats, who hold a large number of seats on the panel. The Energy and Commerce Committee is the only House panel with jurisdiction over health care that has not completed writing its version of the reform bill.

President Obama plans to meet with those Democrats Tuesday. He stressed before going into the meeting that lawmakers have already forged unprecedented consensus on health care and expressed confidence that they could finish what they started." Source Here

I'm sure that the orating Obama will find the right words, be they true or false, to persuade enough members of the Washington machine to vote in favor of his legislation. If not, I'm sure he will put a czar in charge of the new health care program.

Summers Advising.

Good news on the economy!...or is it?

"Larry Summers, Obama's top economic adviser, thinks the White House is doing a great job with the economy. "We were at the brink of catastrophe at the beginning of the year, but we have walked a substantial distance back from the abyss," says Summers.

Speaking at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington on Friday, his first "progress report" since March, Summers pointed to a string of promising (albeit obscure) signs of recovery: ...Google searches for "economic depression," which surged to quadruple their normal levels, have since returned to normal."

Doesn't this "advisor" know that other things might be happening if the Google search for "economic depression" is down? Such as, less people can afford computers and the Internet...or enough "economic depression" news is broadcast for people to feel like we are in an "economic depression" already so they feel helpless and that it won't matter if they Google it or not...

"A somewhat more important indicator--the unemployment rate--isn't as upbeat, though and has become a thorn in the administration's side. It hit 9.5% in June, embarrassing the administration's predictions that if their $787 billion stimulus were passed, the rate would peak a bit above 8%. Economists predict it will soon top 10%, erasing all the jobs created in the U.S. since the beginning of the decade."

Well, don't just take my word for it. Click here to read it from Forbes.com.

Unemployment Rate. Current. Depression.

If you're wondering what the difference in the current unemployment rate is as compared the the unemployment rate during the depression, here you go.

Here is a link to a chart for the unemployment rate as of the end of June -- Click Here

For more information on the current unemployment rate, which is nearly 10%, Click HERE

The unemployment rate for the years 1923-29 was 3.3 percent. In 1931 it jumped to 15.9, in 1933 it was 24.9 percent. It then steadily decreased until 1941 when it stood at 9.9%. In 1942, after U.S. entry into World War II, the rate dropped to 4.7%. (Source: http://www.bls.gov/opub/cwc/cm20030124ar03p1.htm)

Czar, Tsar, Csar.

President Obama gave his so-called "czars" responsibilities that might have been divided among different Cabinet secretaries in past administrations.

But by some accounts, Obama has nearly three dozen czars in his administration, managing everything from closing the Guantanamo Bay detention facility to ending the genocide in Darfur.

Obama has pledged his full support to all of them. But when you add his 15 Cabinet secretaries to his policy and political advisors and his chief of staff and throw in his military advisors and a couple dozen selected other officials, that equals a lot of officials who have Oval Office walk-in rights.

"I think the number probably is getting closer to a 100," said James Bailey, a leadership professor at George Washington University, who noted that's not the norm at most Fortune 500 companies.

Like many lofty titles, e.g. Mogul, Tsar or Czar has been used as a metaphor for positions of high authority, in English since 1866 (referring to U.S. President Andrew Johnson), with a connotation of dictatorial powers and style, fitting since "Autocrat" was an official title of the Russian Emperor (informally referred to as 'the Tsar'). Similarly, Speaker of the House Thomas Brackett Reed was called "Czar Reed" for his dictatorial control of the House of Representatives in the 1880s and 1890s.

In the United States the title "czar" is an informal term for certain high-level officials, such as the "drug czar" for the head of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, "terrorism czar" for a Presidential advisor on terrorism policy, "cybersecurity czar" for the highest-ranking Department of Homeland Security official on computer security and information security policy, and "war czar" to oversee the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

On June 5th 2009, British multimillionaire businessman Sir Alan Sugar was made "enterprise tsar" of the Labour Party.

One of the earliest known usages was in "baseball czar", applied to Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis, who was named Commissioner of Baseball, with broad powers to clean up the sport after it had been dirtied by the Black Sox scandal of 1919. Although other Commissioners have been described as "czars", the term is less used than it once was, due to the Commissioner's power being made inferior to that of the owners.

Budget Office Warns About Healthcare Reform Package Costs

When it all hits the fan, I don't want to have to say 'I told you so', but it's looking that way...very clearly! Take a look at this smug video of Obama explaining the health care reform and the cost involved. If we thought the first civil war was bad, just wait until desperation sets in and the people decide to gather their pitchforks and torches the second time 'round.

Biden and the "Glob"

Where is the "glob" when we need it?

"Vice President Biden defended the Obama administration's economic stimulus package Thursday by suggesting that without the federal government spending massive amounts of money to shore up the economy the country would go bankrupt.

"We're going to go bankrupt as a nation," Biden warned at an event in the backyard of the House's No. 2 Republican.

"People, when I say that, look at me and say, 'What are you talking about, Joe? You're telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?" he said. "The answer is yes." -- Fox News

I think it's time for Biden to go swimming in the ocean...oh, say the Pacific...right around Alaska?!!!

Beware of the "Glob"

Perhaps there is a more sinister reason for the beaching squid. There have been reports of beached squid all along the West Coast. Today, in Alaska, there was a report of a mysterious glob. Yes, a glob. It's a mysterious organism that seems to have blackish gooeness and hair. Yes, "hairy strands". Perhaps this "glob" is responsible for the squid feeling that it's just time to give up the ghost. Perhaps this "glob" has been bullying the squid and the squid just could not take it any longer.

"A mysterious glob of unknown material up to 12 miles long has appeared off Alaska's northern coast. Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class Terry Hasenauer says, "It's certainly biological. It's definitely not an oil product of any kind." "From the air it looks brownish with some sheen, but when you get close and put it up on the ice and in the bucket, it's kind of blackish stuff ... (and) has hairy strands on it." -- Source Here

Or perhaps it is just an ocean inversion that is moving some of the deep ocean creatures toward the surface. Harvard

Regardless of the cause, beware of the "glob". There are reports that gulls have been pulled out of the gooey mess and all that was left were the bones and feathers.

No to the U.S. Constitution Being Given Out On the 4th of July?

Bristol, Rhode Island, claims it has the nation's oldest Fourth of July celebration
by Associated Press
Thursday July 02, 2009, 9:01 PM
BRISTOL, R.I. -- In July 1785, the citizens of the waterfront town of Bristol, R.I., assembled to heap praise on their newly minted nation and to thank God for helping them survive a fierce assault by the British during the Revolutionary War. ...

...Prayer, speeches and other such "patriotic exercises" have marked the Fourth of July in Bristol every year since 1785 -- allowing the town to lay claim to the nation's oldest Independence Day celebration. ...

...The parade has continued uninterrupted with the exception of a few years -- such as 1881, when President James Garfield was shot. Some events -- like chasing a greased pig around the Common -- have been abandoned, but modern-day fixtures include a concert series, orange crate derby, nighttime ball, a Miss (and Little Miss) Fourth of July pageant -- even a contest recognizing the person who has traveled the farthest.

"Sometimes we think we have red, white and blue running through our bloodstream because of our commitment to the celebration," said parade chairwoman Judy Squires, a lifelong Bristol resident and part of a committee of 110 volunteers that runs the event.

Topix.com

Passing out U.S. Constitutions on July 4th gets group tossed from annual celebration. The Rhode Island Tea Party group says that it has banned from future Bristol 4th of July Parades. Last Saturday's parade, which is the oldest in the country at 224 years, had included a float representing the taxpayer group, which has recently been organizing "Tea Party" type political rallys.

Tea Party spokesperson Marina Peterson says she was contacted by a parade committe member on Wednesday and was told "It is because some members of the RI Tea Party passed out U.S. Constitutions to the crowd. Apparently passing out the US Constitution on Independence Day is an egregious violation of parade rules. This is despite the fact that other floats passed out solicitations for their businesses, which is against the Parade guidelines, and these businesses have NOT been told that they are banned from participating in the future."

ProJo.com

Since the parade, which dates back to 1785, is a celebration of America and its cherished freedom, that would have to be eligible for some sort of prize for irony.

All In the Name of Research...What Am I Into Now?!

In talking with my husband, I theorized that the beached squid from the incident in California might be found to be the result of the ElectroMagnetic Field changes. With recent theories that include the changes ocurring, not only in the various atmosphere layers, but also in the Earth's core, it would logically cause an animal of habit and instinct to become disoriented and therefore beached. This would also explain the Earthquake activity to some degree.

Well, I decided to look into this further. Not to bore you with scientific research and documentation, I wound up in a research area that I didn't expect. I wound up in warfare and terrorism.

Therefore, I will give you a couple of my findings in tonights post and continue to research this issue further. For some reason, it is extremely fascinating to me to try to put together this puzzle.

"...Former US defence secretary William Cohen warns: "Terrorists are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes and volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves. It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our efforts."

Owen Greene, director of research at Bradford University's department of Peace Studies, believes efforts are continuing in secret to develop weapons that harness nature."

More Signs of the Times

Signs of the times...

First, residents were jostled out of bed at 7.34 a.m. by a 4.0 magnitude earthquake that was centered 19 miles out in the ocean.

“I was having coffee up on the balcony and I felt it shaking,” Kate Lutkemeier said.

She wasn’t the only one.

“I heard my doors and windows rattling, thinking that somebody was trying to get in my front door actually,” La Jolla resident Mary Skeen said.

The quake was felt all over the county, which isn’t uncommon in San Diego -- but what happened just minutes later was a little fishy.

“We just got here about 15 minutes ago and Lilly, what did you see on the beach?” John Feher asked his little daughter.

“Squid, squid, squid, squid, squid.” she replied.

Dozens of dazed Humboldt squid, which were roughly three- to four-feet long and weighed close to 40 pounds, were found flapping around on La Jolla Shores beach.

“It’s like their equilibrium is all messed up and they don’t know what they’re doing and they can’t back out there,” said beachgoer Bill Baumann. “It was like they got -- I don’t know -- all shook up.”

It didn’t take long for the seagulls to swoop in and start feeding on the squid, so beachgoers ran to the rescue and tried frantically to save them by throwing them back in the water. That proved to be a difficult task for several reasons: they were extremely heavy, very slippery, and when the good Samaritans did manage to get them back them in water, the squid didn’t know which way to go and kept washing back up on shore.

“Some people were saying it was the earthquake this morning that caused them to get disoriented, but who knows? Feher said.

He wasn’t the only person to mention that theory.

“A state guy was out and said the earthquake caused (it),” Baumann said.

Lifeguard Sgt. David Rains said that is one of several possibilities. Another potential cause is there were a lot of fishing boats in the area, creating a significant fish activity and squid follow the food supply. He also said there have been a lot of water inversions, with the water turning from warm to cold, which could be the cause. But he doesn’t know for sure.

“Why are they here? Why are the squid here? I can’t honestly tell you,” Sgt. Rains said. “I don’t know if it’s tied or not to the earthquake.”

According to the lifeguard, swimmers should be wary of the creatures and keep their distance.

“The Humboldt squid can be very big and very powerful and they may be dangerous,” Sgt. Rains said. “It’s just something I wouldn’t mess with until you’re sure that it’s dead. They’ve got a lot of suckers and claws and a parrot-like beak and they can inflict some damage.”

A spokesman for Scripps Institution of Oceanography said at this point they do not see a connection between the squid and the earthquake, but plan to look into it. Dozens of squid washing up at the same time is unusual but it has happened before, according to Sgt. Rains. But Mary Skeen said it is a first for her.

“I have never seen squid in the 42 years that I’ve lived here on the shores in La Jolla,” she said.

For now there are more questions than answers; did the earthquake cause the squid to wash up or was it simply a coincidence? Just ask the little girl who helped daddy push some alien looking creatures back out to sea.

McCain Moves to Block Funding for F-22 Jets
Sen. John McCain, along with Michigan Democrat Carl Levin, files an amendment to cut extra money for seven more F-22's -- in an unusual alliance with President Obama.


WASHINGTON -- Sen. John McCain, in an unusual alliance with the Obama administration, moved Monday to eliminate $1.75 billion recently inserted into the proposed 2010 defense budget for more fighter jets from Lockheed Martin.

The Arizona Republican, along with Michigan Democrat Carl Levin, filed an amendment to cut the extra money for seven more F-22's. The Senate Armed Services Committee last month narrowly approved the additional funding requested by Georgia Republican Saxby Chambliss.

McCain and Levin, the committee's chairman, voted against the additional funds. The full Senate may vote on the defense spending bill this week. The House last month voted to include a $369 million down payment for 12 additional fighters to its version of the defense bill.

With our aging military equipment, it looks like we are headed for another arms race...

The most powerful battlefield laser in development, and one of the most ambitious weapon systems to date, the Airborne Laser is designed to prove that a megawatt-class chemical laser mounted on a large aircraft (in this case, a 747) can shoot down a long-range ballistic missile before it escapes the atmosphere.

Critics have long derided every aspect of the project, from its cost overruns to the limited scope and Hollywood overtones of its proposed mission. What nation would be reckless enough to launch a missile at the United States, and foolish enough to telegraph the blow, providing the advance warning necessary to deploy a laser-armed 747?

End The Fed.



Written by: Ron Paul
Our country currently finds itself in the midst of the worst economic crisis since the 1930s and, as during all economic crises, people search for the answer as to why this has happened. Not only have large financial firms been affected, but also mainstays of American industry such as GM and Chrysler, all the way down to the Mom & Pop stores on Main Street. The easy way out is to blame the traditional scapegoats: foreign governments, fraudulent businessmen, and greedy speculators. But the real villain is far more sinister; the organization entrusted with maintaining a stable dollar and touted as the guarantor of economic stability – the Federal Reserve.

In the United States, monetary policy has been the domain of the Federal Reserve since its inception in 1913. Since that time we have had a number of cyclical recessions, each one following a boom caused by the Federal Reserve's loose monetary policy. The problem with the Federal Reserve is that it interferes with market pricing functions. Interest rates are a price just like any other and arise because of the fact that people prefer to consume in the present rather than in the future. The extent to which people defer present consumption is reflected in interest rates, which in a free market are determined by the spontaneous interactions and decisions of millions of people.

Fed intervention to set prices throws markets and interest rates out of equilibrium. When the Federal Reserve pushes interest rates below what the market rate would be, everyone wants to borrow money for long-term projects. Shortages of loanable funds would occur, except that the Federal Reserve has the ability to create bank balances out of thin air. The Fed can create a bank ledger on paper, or on a computer, establish a balance of millions or billions of dollars, and then spend these dollars out into the economy.

Loans become cheap, and the result of these lower interest rates is an economic boom which eventually manifests itself as a bubble. Beginning in 2001, the Federal Reserve pushed interest rates to as low as one percent, which after adjusting for inflation meant that the real interest rate was negative, so businesses were actually making money by taking out loans. This was the fuel for the housing bubble and the reason there are 19 million empty houses today.

Because of this awesome power to create money out of thin air, the Fed has jumped in to stabilize ailing financial firms by pledging over $7 trillion through various guarantee programs and credit facilities. This is equivalent to over half of the entire nation's GDP. Over $1 trillion of this is already in play, propping up banks and other institutions that should be allowed to fail. All of this has taken place with no oversight by Congress. The Fed was created by Congress, and it is unconscionable that we have allowed it to act in such a way without our oversight.

Currently the Federal Reserve's credit facilities, open market operations, and agreements with foreign governments and central banks are all exempt from any sort of audit or oversight. Earlier this year I introduced the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, HR 1207, that would remove all restrictions on Federal Reserve audits and call for a f ull audit of the Federal Reserve System to be completed by the end of 2010. At this writing, 245 of my fellow Congressmen have cosponsored this bill and we hope to have hearings in the near future. In the Senate, Republicans Jim DeMint, Mike Crapo and David Vitter have cosponsored S. 604, companion legislation introduced by Bernie Sanders. I am very encouraged by the tremendous growing momentum on Capitol Hill.

Stimulus II. A Whole New Survival Reality Series.

Tell Obama NO to stimulus number 2!

Tell your representatives NO!

CNN
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Congressional Republicans tore into the Obama administration over the economic stimulus plan Wednesday, arguing that the White House is mishandling the distribution of the money while overstating the ability of the package to create jobs.

They criticized the White House for referring to the number of "jobs created or saved" by the $787 billion package -- a metric, they claimed, that is impossible to verify.

The White House Office of Management and Budget defended the plan, arguing that every federal dollar spent has, by definition, helped to ease the pain of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

The Republican and Democratic leaders traded their arguments during a contentious hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

"In selling the stimulus package, the administration promised the American people that [the] legislation would create or save 3.5 million jobs and prevent the U.S. unemployment rate from rising above 8 percent," said Rep. Darrell Issa, R-California.

"I believe that the discredited Keynesian theory behind the effort is misguided, and I am convinced that it won't work," said Issa, referring to the theories of economist John Maynard Keynes. "Unfortunately, recent economic data has validated my opposition."

The economy has shed 3.4 million jobs over the past six months, according to the Department of Labor. The unemployment rate rose for the ninth straight month in June, climbing to 9.5 percent and hitting a 26-year high.

Top Obama Aides: Second Stimulus "Might Eventually Be Needed"
Media outlets are reporting that as rising unemployment continues to take a toll on the economy, some top aides to President Obama think a second economic stimulus package may become necessary. The Financial Times reports "senior administration officials think further stimulus might eventually be needed but they do not want to have this fight now. Both the economics and the politics call for postponing a decision to late this year or early in 2010." The New York Times reports, "For the moment, Mr. Obama and his top economic advisers are fending off calls for more action."

The CBS Evening News reported "since the President signed" the stimulus "into law in February, the nation has lost another two million jobs, pushing unemployment to its highest rate in 25 years." CNN's Situation Room reported, "If the question is, is the $787 billion recovery plan making a difference, Republicans in a House hearing today gave a resounding 'no.'" Fox News' Special Report noted that Administration aides said $57 billion of the stimulus funds have been committed, creating 150,000 jobs, or "$380,000 a job."

The Financial Times reports that "while arguments over the benefits of the stimulus continue to rage, Democrats have shown themselves to be divided." The Hill reports Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell (D) "urged House members to consider another stimulus package just for infrastructure projects in order to produce more jobs."

As debate grows about a possible second stimulus package for the flagging American economy, at least one legendary investor is giving the idea his guarded approval.

"I think that a second one may well be called for," Warren Buffett, the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, told "Good Morning America" today. But, he added, "you hope it doesn't get watered down in many ways."

Buffett cautioned that a second stimulus package, like the first, won't be "a panacea," because stimulus packages take time to work. He criticized lawmakers' work on the first stimulus package, which contained $787 billion in spending.

"Our first stimulus bill ... was sort of like taking half a tablet of Viagra and having also a bunch of candy mixed in ... as if everybody was putting in enough for their own constituents," he said. "It doesn't have really quite the wall that might have been anticipated there."

Cyber Attack.

WASHINGTON — The powerful attack that overwhelmed computers at U.S. and South Korean government agencies for days was even broader than initially realized, also targeting the White House, the Pentagon and the New York Stock Exchange.

Other targets of the attack included the National Security Agency, Homeland Security Department, State Department, the Nasdaq stock market and The Washington Post, according to an early analysis of the malicious software used in the attacks.

Many of the organizations appeared to successfully blunt the sustained computer assaults.

The Associated Press obtained the target list from security experts analyzing the attacks. It was not immediately clear who might be responsible or what their motives were.

South Korean intelligence officials believe the attacks were carried out by North Korea or pro-Pyongyang forces.

The attack was remarkably successful in limiting public access to victim Web sites, but internal e-mail systems are typically unaffected in such attacks.

Some government Web sites — such as the Treasury Department, Federal Trade Commission and Secret Service — were still reporting problems days after the attack started during the July 4 holiday.

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korean intelligence officials believe North Korea or pro-Pyongyang forces committed cyber attacks that paralyzed major South Korean and U.S. government Web sites, aides to two lawmakers said Wednesday.

The sites of 11 South Korean organizations, including the presidential Blue House and the Defense Ministry, went down or had access problems since late Tuesday, according to the state-run Korea Information Security Agency. Agency spokeswoman Ahn Jeong-eun said 11 U.S. sites suffered similar problems.

She said the agency is investigating the case with police and prosecutors.

In the U.S., the Treasury Department, Secret Service, Federal Trade Commission and Transportation Department Web sites were all down at varying points over the July 4 holiday weekend and into this week, according to American officials inside and outside the government.

Swine Flu = Bioterrorism

For those who read my posts regularly, you'll note that the following is no surprise, that I have been saying this about the Swine Flu from the get-go. Of course, with any story where there are emotions running high, you kind of need to take the middle-ground and realize they are alarmists and that they usually make alarming claims whenever there is an issue with vacinations. However, with any contraversial story...conspiracy and the like, there is usually some truth.

Journalist Files Charges against WHO and UN for Bioterrorism and Intent to Commit Mass Murder

by Barbara Minton, Natural Health Editor

NaturalNews) As the anticipated July release date for Baxter's A/H1N1 flu pandemic vaccine approaches, an Austrian investigative journalist is warning the world that the greatest crime in the history of humanity is underway. Jane Burgermeister has recently filed criminal charges with the FBI against the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations (UN), and several of the highest ranking government and corporate officials concerning bioterrorism and attempts to commit mass murder. She has also prepared an injunction against forced vaccination which is being filed in America. These actions follow her charges filed in April against Baxter AG and Avir Green Hills Biotechnology of Austria for producing contaminated bird flu vaccine, alleging this was a deliberate act to cause and profit from a pandemic.

Summary of claims and allegations filed with FBI in Austria on June 10, 2009

In her charges, Burgermeister presents evidence of acts of bioterrorism that is in violation of U.S. law by a group operating within the U.S. under the direction of international bankers who control the Federal Reserve, as well as WHO, UN and NATO. This bioterrorism is for the purpose of carrying out a mass genocide against the U.S. population by use of a genetically engineered flu pandemic virus with the intent of causing death. This group has annexed high government offices in the U.S.

Specifically, evidence is presented that the defendants, Barack Obama, President of the U.S, David Nabarro, UN System Coordinator for Influenza, Margaret Chan, Director-General of WHO, Kathleen Sibelius, Secretary of Department of Health and Human Services, Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Department of Homeland Security, David de Rotschild, banker, David Rockefeller, banker, George Soros, banker, Werner Faymann, Chancellor of Austria, and Alois Stoger, Austrian Health Minister, among others, are part of this international corporate criminal syndicate which has developed, produced, stockpiled and employed biological weapons to eliminate the population of the U.S. and other countries for financial and political gain.

The charges contend that these defendants conspired with each other and others to devise, fund and participate in the final phase of the implementation of a covert international bioweapons program involving the pharmaceutical companies Baxter and Novartis. They did this by bioengineering and then releasing lethal biological agents, specifically the "bird flu" virus and the "swine flu virus" in order to have a pretext to implement a forced mass vaccination program which would be the means of administering a toxic biological agent to cause death and injury to the people of the U.S. This action is in direct violation of the Biological Weapons Anti-terrorism Act.

Burgermeister's charges include evidence that Baxter AG, Austrian subsidiary of Baxter International, deliberately sent out 72 kilos of live bird flu virus, supplied by the WHO in the winter of 2009 to 16 laboratories in four counties. She claims this evidence offers clear proof that the pharmaceutical companies and international government agencies themselves are actively engaged in producing, developing, manufacturing and distributing biological agents classified as the most deadly bioweapons on earth in order to trigger a pandemic and cause mass death.

In her April charges, she noted that Baxter's lab in Austria, one of the supposedly most secure biosecurity labs in the world, did not adhere to the most basic and essential steps to keep 72 kilos of a pathogen classified as a bioweapon secure and separate from all other substances under stringent biosecurity level regulations, but it allowed it to be mixed with the ordinary human flu virus and sent from its facilities in Orth in the Donau.

In February, when a staff member at BioTest in the Czech Republic tested the material meant for candidate vaccines on ferrets, the ferrets died. This incident was not followed up by any investigation from the WHO, EU, or Austrian health authorities. There was no investigation of the content of the virus material, and there is no data on the genetic sequence of the virus released.

In answer to parliamentary questions on May 20th, the Austrian Health Minister, Alois Stoger, revealed that the incident had been handled not as a biosecurity lapse, as it should have been, but as an offence against the veterinary code. A veterinary doctor was sent to the lab for a brief inspection.

Burgermeister's dossier reveals that the release of the virus was to be an essential step for triggering a pandemic that would allow the WHO to declare a Level 6 Pandemic. She lists the laws and decrees that would allow the UN and WHO to take over the United States in the event of pandemic. In addition, legislation requiring compliance with mandatory vaccinations would be put into force in the U.S. under conditions of pandemic declaration.

She charges that the entire "swine flu" pandemic business is premised on a massive lie that there is no natural virus out there that poses a threat to the population. She presents evidence leading to the belief that the bird flu and swine flu viruses have, in fact, been bioengineered in laboratories using funding supplied by the WHO and other government agencies, among others. This "swine flu" is a hybrid of part swine flu, part human flu and part bird flu, something that can only come from laboratories according to many experts.

WHO's claim that this "swine flu" is spreading and a pandemic must be declared ignores the fundamental causes. The viruses that were released were created and released with the help of WHO, and WHO is overwhelmingly responsible for the pandemic in the first place. In addition, the symptoms of the supposed "swine flu" are indistinguishable from regular flu or from the common cold. The "swine flu" does not cause death anymore often than the regular flu causes death.

Burgermeister notes that the figures for deaths reported for the "swine flu" are inconsistent and there is no clarity as to how the number of "deaths" has been documented.

There is no pandemic potential unless mass vaccinations are carried out to weaponize the flu under the guise of protecting the population. There are reasonable grounds for believing that the mandatory vaccines will be purposely contaminated with diseases that are specifically designed to cause death.

Reference is made to a licensed Novartis bird flu vaccine that killed 21 homeless people in Poland in the summer of 2008 and had as its "primary outcome measure" an "adverse events rate", thereby meeting the U.S. government's own definition of a bioweapon (a biological agent designed to cause an adverse events rate, i.e death or injury) with a delivery system (injection).

She alleges that the same complex of international pharmaceutical companies and international government agencies that have developed and released pandemic material have positioned themselves to profit from triggering the pandemic with contracts to supply vaccines. Media controlled by the group that is engineering the "swine flu" agenda is spreading misinformation to lull the people of the U.S. into taking the dangerous vaccine.

The people of the U.S. will suffer substantial and irreparable harm and injury if they are forced to take this unproven vaccine without their consent in accordance with the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act, National Emergency Act, National Security Presidential Directive/NSPD 51, Homeland Security Presidential Directive/HSPD-20, and the International Partnership on Avian and Pandemic Influenza.

In the U.S. since 2008, Burgermeister charges that those named in her allegations have implemented new and/or accelerated the implementation of laws and regulations designed to strip the citizens of the U.S. of their lawful constitutional rights to refuse an injection. These people have created or allowed provisions to remain in place that make it a criminal act to refuse to take an injection against pandemic viruses. They have imposed other excessive and cruel penalties such as imprisonment and/or quarantine in FEMA camps while barring the citizens of the U.S. from claiming compensation from injury or death from the forced injections. This is in violation of the laws governing federal corruption and the abuse of office as well as of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Through these actions, the named defendants have laid the groundwork for mass genocide.

Using the "swine flu" as a pretext, the defendants have preplanned the mass murder of the U.S. population by means of forced vaccination. They have installed an extensive network of FEMA concentration camps and identified mass grave sites, and they have been involved in devising and implementing a scheme to hand power over the U.S. to an international crime syndicate that uses the UN and WHO as a front for illegal racketeering influenced organized crime activities, in violation of the laws that govern treason.

She further charges that the complex of pharmaceutical companies consisting of Baxter, Novartis and Sanofi Aventis are part of a foreign-based dual purpose bioweapons program, financed by this international criminal syndicate and designed to implement mass murder to reduce the world's population by more than 5 billion people in the next ten years. Their plan is to spread terror to justify forcing people to give up their rights, and to force mass quarantine in FEMA camps. The houses, companies and farms and lands of those who are killed will be up for grabs by this syndicate.

By eliminating the population of North America, the international elite gain access to the region's natural resources such as water and undeveloped oil lands. And by eliminating the U.S. and its democratic constitution by subsuming it under a North American Union, the international crime group will have total control over North America.

Highlights from the complete dossier

The complete dossier of the June 10th action is a 69 page document presenting evidence to substantiate all charges. This includes:

Factual background that delineates time lines and facts that establish probable cause, UN and WHO definitions and roles, and history and incidents from the April, 2009 "swine flu" outbreak.

Evidence the "swine flu" vaccines are defined as bioweapons as delineates in government agencies and regulations classifying and restricting vaccines, and the fear of foreign countries that "swine flu" vaccines will be used for biological warfare.

Scientific evidence the "swine flu" virus is an artificial (genetic) virus.

Scientific evidence the "swine flu" was bioengineered to resemble the Spanish flu virus of 1918 including quotes from Swine Flu 2009 is Weaponized 1918 Spanish Flu by A. True Ott, Ph.D., N.D., and a Science Magazine report from Dr. Jeffrey Taubenberger et.al.

The genome sequence of the "swine flu"

Evidence of the deliberate release of the "swine flu" in Mexico

Evidence as to the involvement of President Obama that delineates his trip to Mexico which coincided with the recent "swine flu" outbreak and the death of several officials involved in his trip. Contention is made that the President was never tested for "swine flu" because he had been previously vaccinated.

Evidence as to the role of Baxter and WHO in producing and releasing pandemic virus material in Austria includes a statement from a Baxter official stating the accidentally distributed H5N1 in the Czech Republic was received from a WHO reference center. This includes delineation of evidence and allegations from Burgermeister's charges filed in April in Austria that are currently under investigation.

Evidence Baxter is an element in a covert bioweapons network

Evidence Baxter has deliberately contaminated vaccine material.

Evidence Novartis is using vaccines as bioweapons

Evidence as to WHO's role in the bioweapons program

Evidence as to WHO's manipulation of disease data in order to justify declaring a Pandemic Level 6 in order to seize control of the USA.

Evidence as to the FDA's role in covering up the bioweapons program

Evidence as to Canada's National Microbiology Lab's role in the bioweapons program.

Evidence of the involvement of scientists working for the UK's NIBSC, and the CDC in engineering the "swine flu".

Evidence vaccinations caused the Spanish killer flu of 1918 including belief of Dr. Jerry Tennant that the widespread use of aspirin during the winter that followed the end of World War I could have been a key factor contributing to the earlier pandemic by suppressing the immune system and lowering body temperatures, allowing the flu virus to multiply. Tamiflu and Relenza also lower body temperatures, and therefore can also be expected to contribute to the spread of a pandemic.

Evidence as to manipulation of the legal framework to allow mass murder with impunity.

Constitutional issues: the legality vs. illegality of jeopardizing the life, health and public good by mass vaccinations.

The issue of immunity and compensation as evidence of intent to commit a crime.

Evidence as to the existence of an international corporate crime syndicate.

Evidence of the existence of the "Illuminati".

Evidence as to the depopulation agenda of the Illuminati/Bilderbergs and their involvement in the engineering and release of the artificial "swine flu" virus.

Evidence that weaponized flu was discussed at the annual Bilderberg meeting in Athens from May 14-17, 2009, as part of their agenda of genocide, including a list of attendees who, according to a statement once made by Pierre Trudeau, view themselves as genetically superior to the rest of humanity.

Media is keeping Americans clueless about the threat they are under

Jane Burgermeister is a dual Irish/Austrian who has written for Nature, the British Medical Journal, and American Prospect. She is the European Correspondent of the Renewable Energy World website. She has written extensively about climate change, biotechnology, and the ecology.

In addition to the charges currently under investigation that she filed against Baxter AG and Avir Green Hills Biotechnology in April, she has filed charges against WHO and Baxter among others concerning a case of exploding "swine flu" vials meant for a research lab on a busy IC train in Switzerland.

In her view, control of the media by the ruling elite has allowed the world crime syndicate to further its agenda unabated while the rest of the people remain in the dark about what is really going on. Her charges are an attempt to get around this media control and bring the truth to light.

Her greatest concern is that "in spite of the fact Baxter has been caught red handed nearly triggering pandemic, they are also moving ahead, together with allied pharma companies, with supplying the vaccine for pandemics." Baxter is hurrying to get this vaccine to market some time in July.

Will there be proof that the flag is still there?

Sorry about there being no post yesterday. My 12 year old son was busy being sick in the Emergency Room after a scout trip to Lake Powell.

Anywho, this 4th of July, if you live in Hawaii (or if you are visiting), you may be in the front seat for the new meaning of "And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air".

North Korea threatens reaching the U.S. with their missiles, although it could be just posturing (acting like a little 2 year old testing its parents), on July 4th.

"North Korea fired four short-range missiles off its east coast Thursday, just ahead of the U.S. Independence Day holiday this weekend. The U.S. and Japan called the country's move "provocative."

"The launches have highlighted concerns over North Korea's broader missile intentions, especially after the country warned ships to stay away from waters off its eastern coast until July 10." -- Read More From Source Here

Following this patriotic U.S. holiday, will there be "proof through the night that our flag was still there"?

IOU. Redeemable following the Second Coming.

So, I decided to give you an IOU today for my post. Yep, just want to be hip and happ'nin'. Up with the times. I mean, it seems that California is setting a new trend with the IOU. I think I like it! No more credit, just IOU's. Awesome! I think I'll send one out there for my Visa bill payment this month. Or, how about the mortgage payment...yeah, that is more like it. Never fear, the IOU is here. Since I am not drawing on credit for it, I shouldn't feel bad right? I'm good for it, don't yah know.

Has the world lost its axis tilt balance? Are we all going to go flying off into space because the law of gravity has disappeared? Is everyone going insane?

Of course, the one thing that usually gets cut from budgets is education. Heck, we ain't in need of no formal education anymore. We's can do it all wit'out no formal education.

Kids just need the educational system for daycare while "parents" work for the "material possessions" they can't really afford while their kids are trapped in a classroom full of 45 kids to one teacher who gets paid under $30,000 a year to put up with the kids misbehaving because they don't see their parents until 9pm.

I think I must feel strongly about that, eh? No offense to those parents who have to work...really have to work.

Oh, and on that IOU...you can redeem it following the Second Coming...which essentially means you really won't have to wait very long.
