Thomas Jefferson

When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in
Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.

– Thomas Jefferson

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from
those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

– Thomas Jefferson

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as
it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half
the wars of the world.

– Thomas Jefferson

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent
the government from wasting the labors of the people under
the pretense of taking care of them.

– Thomas Jefferson

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government
results from too much government.

– Thomas Jefferson

No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.

– Thomas Jefferson

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to
keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect
themselves against tyranny in government.

– Thomas Jefferson

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time
with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

– Thomas Jefferson

To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the
propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is
sinful and tyrannical.

– Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to
our liberties than standing armies. If the American people
ever allow private banks to control the issue of their
currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks
and corporations that will grow up around the banks will
deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up
homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

These were received in an e-mail or two, I thought they
bared repeating.


have a kimber day

Disclaimer – I’m not actually sure this is legit, but I hope it is.

To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.

Date: 2009-05-27, 1:43 a.m. E.S.T.

I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded
that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my
girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend’s
purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across
this rather important message.

First, I’d like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn’t expect
you to actually crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you
took my jacket. The evening was not that cold, and I was wearing
the jacket for a reason. My girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber
Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a
shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it
is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head … Isn’t it?!

I know it probably wasn’t fun walking back to wherever you’d come
from with that brown sludge in your pants.. I’m sure it was even
worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell
phone, and wallet with me. [That prevented you from calling or
running to your buddies to come help mug us again].

After I called your mother or “Momma” as you had her listed in your
cell, I explained the entire episode of what you’d done. Then I went
and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the
gas station,—on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home
took 150 gallons and was extremely grateful!

I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go’s, along
with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!]

I then threw your wallet into the big pink “pimp mobile” that was parked
at the curb … After I broke the windshield and side window and keyed
the entire driver’s side of the car.

Later, I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell phone.
Ma Bell just now shut down the line, although I only used the phone for
a little over a day now, so what ’s going on with that? Earlier, I managed
to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA’s office and one to the FBI,
while mentioning President Obama as my possible target.

The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess
while he traced your number etc.).

In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you … But I feel this
type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for your
threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these
rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the
opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path
you’ve chosen to pursue in life. Remember, next time you might not be so
lucky.Have a good day!

Thoughtfully Yours,

the morality of paper money

by Bob Livingston

Government printing press money distorts economic reality and dilutes morality.
Financial speculation rises with the increase in paper money and the general work
ethic deteriorates. The something-for-nothing mentality pervades society.
Paper money promotes the “quick buck” syndrome like narcotics peddling and
hookers on the streets. Hookers, incidentally, were widespread in the Weimar
Republic in Germany in 1923 because the women had to sell their bodies for food
for themselves and their families. The social order visibly deteriorates. The morality
of the stable gold standard gradually changes to the amorality of fiat. Few people
see the cause and effect and the politicians try to legislate human behavior. They
always fail as the system is overrun with jails and prisons.

Fiat promotes an illusory reality where non-substance such as financial speculation
and gambling replaces the substance of industrial production and long-term value.
When consumption surpasses income, as the government and the politicians promote,
distorted human emotions replace stable behavior. Social breakdown increases and
real values are forgotten. Prices of labor and craftsmen escalate beyond all reason
when there is never enough money. Service repairmen charge like medical doctors.
When labor and supplies are valued in fiat, everything becomes distorted. In the final
stages of hyperinflation there is no anchor to sanity and common sense.

Paper money expands consumption way beyond income. This eventually guarantees
debt collapse and social breakdown. The foundation of the household collapses and
the middle class is destroyed. Paper money is an illusion because it is non-substance
and can be created by the government to infinity. When the people accept numbers
on green strips of paper or computer symbols for money, they accept illusion for
reality. They accept non-substance for substance. Real money (gold and silver) comes
from the earth and human production. It is no illusion. Future generations are cheated
out of life because working mothers give up newborns for fiat paper money. They
unwittingly exchange new life for paper money, and more paper money and
consumption. This is what the system promotes.

What Comes Next?

I believe that I can assure you that three years from now the dollar purchasing parity
will be about 30 cents as compared to the present. I don’t know why it is not obvious
to people who have dollar savings. There are many controls coming. As paper
currencies come to their end, governments greatly step up suppression of the people.
They start foreign wars. They attack their own population with high-sounding
hypocrisy. Government makes criminals out of honest men—“in the public interest,”
of course.

What then?

Default of the United States? Not formally but by stealth, depreciation of the currency
(inflation). Will the U.S. world system hold? Yes, as long as world fear factor dominates
as a result of superior military power.
Much press about vast U.S. debt? Yes, but sober people understand monetary realism,
to wit, that fiat implies stealth (slow) default. No payment is ever intended and
impossible even if intended. The main feature or attribute of sovereign debt default is
gradualism. The public cannot grasp gradualism even as they are impoverished. The
debt propaganda is a cover for the fiat regime. It’s a hoax!

Scarcity of gold? Already evident.

New taxes? A value-added tax (VAT) as in Europe, income tax increases on the
American “rich,” currency controls, strict rules on cash transfers and withdrawals,
more reporting requirements on asset wealth. These are some of the controls alluded
to earlier. The system will try to defeat all attempts by individuals (and collectively)
to protect their savings and personal security. Destruction of the middle class? It’s
already begun. It is impoverishment through currency depreciation and class warfare
between the perceived haves and have nots, i.e. the politics of envy. A huge
percentage of population will be pushed below the poverty line. Savings and pension
fund assets? They will be forced conversion into treasury bonds. There is plenty of
precedence for this, Argentina being the most recent example.

Martial law? Yes, at some point.

Will confidence deteriorate in the banking system? Yes, by stealth (quietly) resulting
in restrictions of withdrawals and frozen bank accounts. Price of gold? When all is said
and done it will be measured in U.S. dollars to about $4,000, then in Swiss francs
because of the nebulousness (no meaning) of the U.S. dollar.

First Rule of Government—control its own people. America is occupied by government.
Possible good news? The current economic depression will extend the system (via
nationalization) and the precious metals market and gold stocks. I foresee inflationary
prosperity for a while with massive infrastructure rebuilding. If so, get your house in
order for the final deluge. Do all the things you know to do such as long-term food
storage. Inflationary collapse creates shortages of everything.

The stock market turns up before the economy. Sentiment is black, getting close to
time to buy stocks. Never stop buying gold! Don’t wait for exchange (currency)
controls to transfer some funds into Swiss francs via Swiss annuities. Take delivery of
all your stock certificates. Soon you will not be able to. This cuts brokers out and takes
your stocks out of the system. They will tell you anything to stop you. They will not
tell you that they loan your stocks out for shorting and make income on them. Also
they fear the loss of re-sales when you decide to sell, perhaps through another broker.
They get directions from above to stop the delivery of stocks. Don’t be dissuaded!

My friends, the “change” promised by politicians should remind us that some power,
both political and economic, is built upon destructive forces. We have reminded you
many times of the destruction of the middle class in the U.S. now going on. When a
segment of the population becomes impoverished they clamor for “change.” This is
exactly what happened to bring about the rise of Adolph Hitler. The German population
was largely impoverished as a result of depreciating paper currency. No U.S. politician
would dare mention depreciating paper money, as Hitler did not. He had his own paper

The destructive forces in America are in full appearance for the few who can see. But for
the majority, they are blind to the biggest and greatest transfer of wealth in the history
of the world. Yes, there is change for exactly the same reason as the destructive change
that gave rise to Hitler. Inflation they call it, but it is really depreciating currency in all
forms. And depreciating currency is the system used to transfer wealth from the savers
and producers to the money creators.

In the early phase of paper currency the people go to work and accumulate wealth. In
the final stage of the speedup of depreciating currency, wealth and savings is returned
to the source, i.e., the money creators. And all appears to be natural economic forces.
There is no bloodshed.

Yes, the people can be economic slaves without chains, without the rack or the
thumbscrew, but with depreciating paper money. Alchemy is a reality. Non-substance
(depreciating currency) is used to steal substance. “Whoever controls the volume of
(paper) money is the master of all industry and commerce,” said President James A. Garfield.

People who understand depreciating currency will do as necessary to survive and
maybe prosper under the nose of despotism.


a 7.8 in southern california

You know the big one is coming, it’s just a matter of when…
Here is a very cool video simulation of the shock waves
generated by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. It may look
pretty in the video but you know it’s going to be a freakin
nightmare when it does happen and I’m pretty sure it will
in my lifetime. I just hope I’ve moved the hell out of
California by then.



I’m beginning to wonder if Gooogle is run by a bunch of
“progressive” liberals. Reason being, it seems as though
everytime I put up an article that runs counter to the
current White House administration, my page hits drop
off like like a crack whores teeth. I’m not the only one
that suffers from page rank abuse either. Many friends
have indicated the same thing when it comes to Gooogle
indexing. I guess when you are the top dog, you can crap
on anyone’s lawn and the heck with ethics.


funeral clothes

As amusing as it may have been then,
it’s not so funny now as Barry Delaney
cries for his friend and fallen Black Watch
soldier Private Kevin Elliott who died
while on foot patrol in the southern
province of Helmand, Afghanistan on
August 31. Private Kevin Elliott and his
friend, Barry Delaney, had agreed that
whoever survived the other should
wear a dress to the dead man’s funeral.
Mr Delaney duly fulfilled the pledge as
a tribute to the 24 year old Private Elliott
who was laid to rest at St Mary’s church
in the city centre somewhere in the UK.


prison toys

Prison is full of people that have a lot of time on their hands.
Idle minds and hands are the devil’s playground. Take a tour
of some things confiscated from prison inmates in Germany.
For example, pictured above:

This gun was found along with
other homemade firearms in the
cell of two Celle prison inmates
on November 15, 1984.
The weapons had been made in
the prison’s metal workshop.
They were loaded with pieces of
steel and match-heads.


arrl field day 2009

Heading out for Field Day 2009! Once a year in June
the ARRL sponsers Amateur Radio Field Day. It occurs
on the last full weekend of June each year and is one
of the most fun times for Hams across the country and
around the world. It’s a time for Hams to demonstrate
their ability to set up emergency communication sites
anywhere and everywhere. It’s a time to show to the
public our ability to open lines of communication to
just about anywhere in the world anytime. If you see a
group of hams and their antennas set up in a park or
campground or parking lot somewhere this weekend,
stop by and say hi. You’ll be greeted by friendly hams
from your community who are more than happy to
show you what we do and give you the dime tour. It is
well worth your time. You may even be able to Get OM
The Air if you ask.

Today a group of hams and I are going to set up a radio
site on top of Mount Pacifico in the Angeles National
Forest in preperation for field day this weekend. It’s going
to be awsome. Catch you all next week.
