You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world.  You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.

American, but...

American down!

I'm an American.


Barack Obama is not my president. He's a fraud, a puppet for money men meant to deceive the ordinary citizens of my country. All of the preceding presidents of my past were the same.

The members of Congress do not represent me. They too are frauds, bought and paid for by the money men. These so-called representatives pretend to represent my interests and the interests of my fellow countrymen, but they do not.

The majority of the laws of my country are invalid and do not apply to me or anyone else. They were conceived in deception by false representatives, worded to obfuscate, and designed to manipulate and control. They are abominations.

The crimes of my country, the quiet assassinations, the hidden torture, the murders, the oppression, the lies, the legalized theft, the tyranny, and the wars, are not my crimes. They are orchestrated by a relatively small association of criminal sociopaths that thrive in the seats of power of this fallen nation.


The principles of the Declaration of Independence are my principles, that all men and women are created equal, with the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. "That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of those ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them (the people) shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness." The government of my country has indeed become destructive of those ends, and not only that, it has quietly organized itself to prevent me or anyone else from altering or abolishing it. Instead, it alters or abolishes anyone that would dare oppose it.

The original Bill of Rights are my rights and the rights of every one of my countrymen. We have the right to own property, to speak freely, to assemble freely, to be secure in our possessions and our homes, and to bear arms. Yet all of these rights have been slowly legislated into effective oblivion by the aforementioned destructive government.

Perhaps you too are an American. Perhaps you too have seen the obscenities perpetrated in your name.

Perhaps we should unite to set things right.

Wasting our energy

First, we dig up a lot of rock and crush it.  This takes time, effort, and very heavy equipment that consumes a lot of fuel, which is burned in the engines.  That consumes a lot of oxygen that living things like ourselves need to breathe, but we never worry about that.

Then the rock is transported to a factory, often far away, sometimes across the ocean.  More time, effort, and fuel is consumed.

At the factory, a very hot (200 degrees C) mixture of water and lye is mixed with the crushed rock.  The particulates are filtered out and thrown away.  Lots of energy is used to heat the liquid initially and dispose of the particulate matter.  The caustic liquid is then allowed to cool, causing a solid precipitate to settle out of the liquid.  The precipitate is collected and dried, then it's heated to 1000 degrees C to melt it (lots more energy consumed here).

While melted in this hot liquid state, a strong electric current, using millions of amps factory-wide, is passed through the liquid (lots more energy required for that).  A pure, molten metal is produced.  By the way, the required electrical energy is so great, you need to have your own hydroelectric dam nearby.  I won't even try to explain how much time, effort, and energy was needed to create that hydroelectric dam.  Needless to say, it's HUGE.

The metal is cooled and rolled into sheets.  The sheets are transported (more energy) to another factory where they are formed into containers (more energy), filled with filtered water (more energy to obtain and transport that) and corn syrup (lots more energy to produce, grow, transport, and process that), and then shipped all over the world (OMG, still more energy).

We're almost done.

Individuals, using machinery called SUVs (weighing tons that took enormous amounts of time, effort, and energy to manufacture), purchase and consume lots of fuel (itself produced at enormous energy and transportation costs) to travel to distribution points and purchase the metal containers full of syrup water.  All of these purchases require money, which itself required vast amounts of time, effort, and energy to obtain.  All of these smiling individuals return to their home areas, where they store the containers until they are transported to other locations, opened, and eight ounces of syrup water, known to be disruptive to the proper biochemistry of the body, is ingested.

Then, get this, the flawless container made of highly refined, nearly pure elemental aluminum metal, is THROWN AWAY, after only a single use!  It is often crushed and returned to the earth in a landfill!

If that isn't collective insanity, then I don't know what is.

Surprise, there is also an energy crisis.  And an environmental crisis.  And a health crisis.  And an economic crisis.  And non-stop war, which is a behavioral crisis that greatly contributes to all the other crises.

Geez-us Crises!

We do it for this.

Just say no to money

Money ruins everything.

We are brainwashed from childhood to make our decisions based on money. As adults, we will sell out other humans if it adds to our bottom line. We will even destroy the local environment to make money, as long as that destroyed environment is not in our backyard.

But people are starting to wake up. They are beginning to realize that the love of money is the root of all evil. Well, not entirely. We are now beginning to understand that money is not the real problem. The real problem is sociopaths being in control of the money and almost everything else as a result. But we need not split hairs. Sociopaths and money are so closely connected, it almost becomes a "chicken or egg" question.

A valley in Switzerland just demonstrated for us that we are not all completely brainwashed. Of course, this could never happen in the USA, home of the "no mind" zombies, who would stick a knife in your heart if the price is right. But no matter. If you check with people who still know what it means to live like true humans, you find the spark of goodness has not been snuffed out.

An estimated $1200 million dollars in gold ore is in their backyard. The 450 residents in the valley were offered about 3.5% of that, or nearly $37 million, over a period of 10 years, if they would allow the mining to take place. That works out to about $8155 dollars per resident per year for ten years.

They refused to allow their valley to be ruined by a margin of 2 to 1. I guess the price wasn't right.

Know what? There is no price that is acceptable to let others destroy your ancestral homeland. No price. None. Nada.

Some of us still remember that.
