Washington is Sauron --- Paul Craig Roberts
« on: March 30, 2015, 04:51:04 PM »
You would think that if a former cabinet undersecretary can get it, that more ordinary Americans would pull their heads out of their derrieres and get it too. Where is the outrage at being exploited? At being put at risk? At being sucked dry?

Eddie,
Brazos caidos REALLY WORKS! It's happening in the USA. It happened in Russia (See "the government pretended to pay us and we pretended to work" MO of the Russian people for the decade just before it Soviet Union fell apart.  ;)).

Dictatorships can only deal with violence, not deliberate foot dragging by a huge percentage of the populace.   8)

if you slacken off too much you get sacked, that could be ok if you could survive in the 'black economy' but even then they shake you down at several points with sales tax. Using renewables, going off grid, driving EV, own food, and even making own clothing would ultimately contribute next to nothing but property tax, which only the county collects anyway.

I think I like "Washington is Mordor" better than "Washington is Sauron".

Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.

People are smart enough to avoid getting sacked while jacking up the costs for the conscience free bosses.  ;) That's why they call it "brazos caidos" and not a strike or perceivable sabotage.  :evil4: Top down control DOES NOT WORK, no matter how tough, mean or threatening, if the mass of people ALL slow down to make tyranny lose it's "cost effectiveness" for the predatory bastards that espouse the 'top down' mentality view that you can perpetually COERCE people to eat shit for the profit of a few.

People have figured it out, UB (see "long train of abuses" phrase in the U.S. Constitution). The populace is not as stupid as the "top downers" think. The "top downers" crossed the line. They have lost their credibility. Once credibility is lost, no amount of carrots (PR) or sticks (coercion) will hold a gooberment together. This is a worldwide phenomenon.

GO,
I've been living an inflationary depression since the late 1990s. Every year, while inflation was going to the moon, the gooberment justified CRAP COLA increases based on a GAMED BLS CPI calculation. I'm ready for it because I had no other choice but to deal with when it started big time in the late 1990s. In fact, inflation since 2008 has slowed down in food and lot rent. Even health insurance premium increases, though still two to three times the "official" inflation rate, have been rather tame the last three years.  8)

OX !
You da' man !
Great post. That Greg Hunter gets the best interviews.
Maybe "Da' Boss" can get an interview or essay from Greg.
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind
