End The Fed

I am not affiliated with or involved in the following, but I thought I should share it with those who are interested in ending the money as debt cycle which invariably results in the total confiscation of all wealth, and the pillaging of an entire planet and resources, including the human ones. The Creature from Jekyll Island is an insidious beast, and it looks as if someone intends once more to try and put a stop to it. I, for one, wish them luck.
On the night of November 22, 1910, a group of bankers met at an elite resort at Jekyll Island, Georgia.

So began the dark conception of the Federal Reserve System, which many economists argue is responsible for devouring the political and financial wealth of America. The U.S. Dollar has seen a better than 98% decline in its purchasing power since that time.

G. Edward Griffin summarizes here: "The purpose of this meeting on Jekyll Island come to an agreement on the structure and operation of a banking cartel. The goal of the cartel, as is true with all of them, was to maximize profits by minimizing competition between members, to make it difficult for new competitors to enter the field, and to utilize the police power of government to enforce the cartel agreement. In more specific terms, the purpose and, indeed, the actual outcome of this meeting was to create the blueprint for the Federal Reserve System." From "The Creature from Jekyll Island" by G. Edward Griffin

On November 22, 2008, ninety-eight years later, End the Fed! will announce the initiation of a grassroots, unfunded, transpartisan citizens movement for Sound Money with rallies at every Federal Reserve Bank and office in the country. Activists will demand an end to private banker control over the nation's money supply and the return to a hard, commodity backed monetary system. Their slogan is simple and direct: "End the Fed! Sound Money for America!"

End the Fed! activists believe that the Federal Reserve Bank, through its inflation of the money supply and the distortion of free markets resulting from its intervention, is responsible for the current financial and economic crisis. They also hold that the current round of "bailouts" and federal government nationalization of large segments of the financial sector further inflates the US dollar and disrupts the proper functioning of the markets and will ultimately serve to plunge the nation into an even more severe crisis, quite possibly even into a serious depression.

End the Fed! supports the passage of Representative Ron Paul's legislation which would repeal the Federal Reserve Act, H.R. 2755.

Rallies will be held in the following 39 cities:

Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, Buffalo, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Richmond, Baltimore, Charlotte, Atlanta, Birmingham, Jacksonville, Miami, Nashville, New Orleans, Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, Little Rock, Louisville, Memphis, Minneapolis, Helena, Kansas City, Denver, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Dallas, El Paso, Houston, San Antonio, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Washington, D.C.

The End Begins November 22nd

Its A Hybrid

In addition to the funds the Fed Gov is giving Detroit for the development of new Hipocritons, the 25 or so billion dollars of taxpayer money the automotive industry already received, Congress will consider monday handing out another nice fat chunk of "Change".

Think Green - Limousine

While riding along the campaign trails in his happy hybrids, Candidate Barack Obama had alot to say about the worlds need for a universal CO2 tax, stating that such taxes (which will raise consumer prices, and allow the rich to purchase indulgences to continue on their jet-setting ways and further the developmental poverty divide) "are essential to reverse runaway climate change and avert resulting severe weather events, inundation of coastal areas, spread of diseases, failure of agriculture and water supply, infrastructure destruction, forced migrations, political upheavals and international conflict."

But now it looks like the next President will be rolling in a much dirtier limousine, and a much less green version than either our current president or any of his predecessors. the New York Times reported last week, rumored Obama-mobile is a brand new souped-up, up-armored limo that looks like a Cadillac DTS but is actually based on GM's line of heavy-duty 2500 trucks, which received the lowest rating possible on the EPA's federal scale of "green", getting single digit gas mileage, and emitting a staggeringly high 16 tons of Carbon Monoxide per year.

Of course, those figures don't take into account the significant (and unknown) additions in weight from all the security and safety measures that have also been tacked on to what is most likely at least 6 Presidential Caddies and Decoy Caddies for codename "Renegade". These (and we are speculating here, based on presidential presidence, as details of defenses are not revealed) include 5 or more inches of bulletproof glass over each of the windows, ceramic/metal armor plates in all body panels, steel overlaps on the doors, reinforced chassis, aircraft tie downs, a large battery bank, radio and communication system, cell-phone-jamming equipment, a very impressive Public Announcement system, a bank of fluorescent lighting, and a steel run-flat system.

I might have missed something there, not to mention any performance upgrades they might have ordered to augment the 2500's stock near 400 horsepower. (there is also speculation that it might be a diesel, but even the use of bio-diesel wouldn't reduce the CO2 Emissions.)

While I think the President's safety is important, I would like to point out that arbitrary fuel mileage regulations are precisely why the stellar highway safety ratings of the 60's sedans declined to the crushed can ratings of your typical tin roller skate today. Rather than let the market develop modern, more technically efficient, cars, the federal government mandated more economical cars, now!, forcing manufacturers to cut weight to use existing technology to achieve goals that were in most cases not set by automotive engineers. Where is the easiest place to cut weight, for an automotive manufacturer? Support Structure. with half the weight, the Governments goals were met, but you, the consumer, were left with little to no choices on how safely you wanted your family to travel.

Legislation is rarely the answer to such problems, and it rarely solves them, instead imbalancing the natural development of improvement and inovation.

Also of note, the GM 2500 series was the platform upon which the Autobot Ironhide from the Transformers movie was built, while I doubt this particular limo will "Change" into anything but the beastly monstrosity it is, if it did, id guess this transformer might be a Decepticon, or the here-to unknown Hipocraton. (unless you count Al Gore's limos in the same catagory.) At least, you know, the taxpayers will pay for his carbon offsets, so they can afford less of their own for silly things like getting food to market, or getting to work.

When asked for Comment on his new Presidential Wheels, a cheerful Presidential-Elect replied:

Well, when I'm the president:

You know what I'm gonna do?
I'm gonna get myself a 1967 New Cadillac El Dorado Convertable DTS
Hot pink! Black!
With whale skin hub caps,
An all leather cow interior,
And big brown baby seal eyes for headlights

And I'm gonna drive around in that baby
At 115 miles per hour Getting one mile per gallon
Sucking down Quarter Pounder cheeseburgers from McDonalds in the old-fashioned non-biodegradable Styrofoam containers
And when I'm done sucking down those grease-ball burgers
I'm gonna wipe my mouth with the American flag
And then I'm gonna toss the Styrofoam containers right out the side
And there ain't a Goddamn thing anybody can do about it You know why?

'Cause I got the bombs, that's why!
Two words:

Nuclear Fuckin' Weapons

Election Day, 2008

100th post, and i hope everyone has a safe and fruitful election day.

I hope everyone out there is able to vote with principle, without constraint of ideology, and makes it home safe, knowing that they picked the right things to support, not the most popular.

Ill leave you today with a post from WRSA and hope everyone remembers that their work here is not done the minute after they walk out of the polls. There's something important at stake here, today, and every day hereafter.

  • Commenter Phelps in reply to Knox the Younger's Lesser's bleat:
    "What I want to know is, where are the Washingtons, Jeffersons, Adamses and Hancocks? Who do these Bozos think is going to lead the new America out of the ashes and back to its Constitutional glory, and why aren't these giants running for public office and leading the political revolution?"

    The new Washington is doing the same thing the old Washington was doing -- running his business after an honorable but otherwise undistinguished military stint.

    The new Jefferson is doing the same as the old Jefferson -- running a business, and taking up an epistolary hobby, only writing a blog this time.

    The new Adams is doing the same as the old Adams -- pursuing a law career, with some part of it dealing with issues of state and freedom.

    The new Hancock is doing the same thing as the old Hancock -- smuggling contraband (then, molasses for drugs, now probably the drugs themselves) and evading taxes and laundering money.

    The new Franklin is blogging and publishing columns, the new Sam Adams is getting pressured by the local authorities about how to run his bar, and the new Paul Revere is reading this comment, and reminding himself to buy some more ammunition this weekend, just in case.

    Let's roll.
