Bitter Tea

Now would I sound crazy if I said the people who were against integration were staunch state's rights individuals instead of people who genuinely had a problem with mixing races? Just as the tea partiers are people who really are upset about taxing and the health care law, rather than something else? The difference between yesterday and today is what is socially acceptable. If integration was to happen today these people would be out here screaming, but since prejudicial statements are not acceptable what do you think they would say. Everyone should know by at least April 15th they got a tax cut well at least if you make less than 200k....

Reason behind the need forTEA Parties

I feel the reason behind most of our troubles and the need for TEA Parties is the government's ability to print up whatever money it wants to manipulate us with.

Maybe this will help make the danger of fiat money clear.

Imagine you and me are setting across from each other. We create enough money to represent all of the world's wealth. Each one of us has one SUPER Dollar in front of him.

You own half of everything and so do I.

I'm the government though. I get bribed into creating a Central Bank.

You're not doing what I want you to be doing so I print up myself eight more SUPER Dollars to manipulate you with.

All of a sudden your SUPER Dollar only represents one tenth of the wealth of the world!

That isn't the only thing though. You need to get busy and get to work because YOU'VE BEEN STIFFED with the bill for the money I PRINTED UP to get YOU TO DO what I WANTED.

That to me represents what has been happening to the economy, and us, and why so many of our occupations just can't keep up with the fake money presses.

They have been beating us with our own stick!!!!1

Carson & Currency

There are several excellent books on this subject, but I would recommend one dealing with the first American banking collapse entitled:

The Exchange Artist by Jane Kamensky.

The key to understanding the devaluation of currency is lack of communication and in the 1790's communications was quite slow. You are correct about “fiat currency” i.e. currency with no valued commodity like gold to back it up. In our modern society we don't have the problem communication, so what keeps the dollar propped up? Secrecy, obscurity and an uneducated citizenry.

Enjoy this interesting study of our early history and wonder at the fact that it will happen again in our modern era.

Dave's Mom - education

Madame,

Unfortunately, you are correct, the public education machine is not interested in or required to educate the citizenry in the areas of pertinent history, Austrian economics, personal responsibility, or self-reliance. The fact that the public education system continues to minimize the importance of history and economics illustrates government's ultimate goal of consolidating power and control. In fact is in government’s interest NOT to teach these things. The more we believe that the state is the answer to our woes the more we will simply give over our freedom to it. State financed education is simply a tool of the state to control minds of children and ultimately the citizenry.

Public Education/PTC

Has been the backbone of our democracy. Without it - we will be a two-class society - the haves and the have-nots. Education is still in the hands of the 'states' - but something has to change - our young people are academically behind too many countries in the world! Local school districts are supposed to be under the control of local school boards. What is happening in a state like Georgia - where so many students are in 'private' schools or home schooled - and students are testing academically number 48 out of 50 states? The TRUTH regarding our history should be taught to all children - not the stories that keep our country 'looking good'. The TRUTH about our country and its problems and solutions has been a guiding light to many countries. I'm not against home schooling or private schools - but I'm against the 'dumbing' down and/or politicalization of public education and the denigration of the teaching profession.

Backbone Education

The truth is the truth and can be found through study and discussion. For example, the Founding Fathers had a distaste and fear of democracy. So, oddly your statement that the public education system is the "backbone" of democracy is exactly correct. That was my point.

I was not using the term the "state" as in one of a union of States. I was using the term state as the body politic as organized for civil rule and government. The state whom the Founders feared most and went to great lengths to divide its power.

Hope this clears this up in your mind.

More on Backbone Education

For example, the Founding Fathers had a distaste and fear of democracy

The Founding Fathers had a fear of the implementation of the words/concept of democracy - because the words are inclusive. Our Founding Fathers felt that 'democracy' was only for a certain 'class'/'type of citizen. Only certain citizens would be able to participate. (exclusive) I had the good fortune of growing up in a family that respected the 'words/concepts' of our Constitution and worked diligently for those words to apply to all citizens of our great country. . .since members of my family were 'excluded'. (Women, race, etc.) The use of 'fear' was tantamount to maintaining the status quo. My mind is very clear - and I rejoice that changes have been made to make the concept of democracy more inclusive here in the United States. The Constitution is a living document - and as the electorate becomes more educated as to the meaning of the words in the Constitution - and the amendments - our democratic ideals will be better implemented. The division of power is an outstanding feature . . but if only a small group of the electorate are educated and understand the true meaning of 'democracy' - we may be headed for a dictatorship - with only a ruling, educated class in power. Hence the importance of public education - where ALL ideas can be looked at and discussed without the filter of religion or 'class'.

Dave's Mom - democracy

You are correct on this; they did fear it because it was inclusive. That's the point; their understanding of the nature of man brought about their fear. That democracy had and has the potential to bring about "mob rule", and that those who produce the wealth would lose it to those that do not. That under a democracy it is easier not to work and steal from those that do work through the use of law. Jefferson warned that law would eventually become tyrannical if democracy were allowed to take hold.

You may rejoice in the idea of democracy but you have not thought through the ultimate outcome. That outcome is enslavement, moral and political corruption.

Consider this if you will, if you don’t have the right to point gun at someone and demand their money with the intent to give the money to someone else, then how can you transfer this “right” you don’t have and give it to government to carry out for you? Clearly you cannot transfer a “right” you don’t have to “representatives”. This is the outcome of democracy, robbery through law.

This is why the Constitution had to be changed in order to legitimize the income tax. This Amendment passed during the Progressive Era, read socialist era. The Constitution is a living document, however; the changes made to the Constitution undermine the core of its intent. That intent was to diffuse power and move it as close to the people as possible. The founders never envisioned a powerful centralized government like we have today, just the opposite. You may say that our modern government is more inclusive, more just, etc. and this is true, however the concentration of power in a central government is not the answer, it is the problem. It is democracy run amok.

The corrupt leadership in the Congress is simply the natural outcome of decades of a concentration of power in the central government. We are reaping the whirlwind.

PTC- OF THE PEOPLE?

The corrupt leadership in the Congress is simply the natural outcome of decades of a concentration of power in the central government. We are reaping the whirlwind.

IMO - the corrupt leadership in the Congress is simply the natural outcome of decades of Americans not voting! In other countries and HERE - citizens died for the right to vote - and we feel 'lucky' if 33% show up at the voting booth. We turned our power over to lobbyists and corporations. Bernie Madoff is just the tip of the iceberg. You have been well taught in your ideology. If the younger generation follows our lead - our leadership on this planet is over. Sad. We never quite believed that we are a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Oh well. . . . .

April Fools Day....how appropriate

I wonder if the Teabaggers will have their book burning in the parking lot before the rally or afterwards?

Also, why will they waste time talking about "technology uses that can influence the political system"? As the past week has shown us, good old-fashioned low-tech stuff like bricks have worked just fine for them!

Steve Driehaus (D) Claims Rock Thrown Through Office Window

Congressman Steve Driehaus part of the Stupak gang stated A rock was thrown through the window of (1st District Congressman) Driehaus’ Cincinnati office Sunday, and a death threat was phoned in to his Washington office a day later.

"Driehaus, who claims to be pro-life but in reality stopped being so when he supported Barack Obama for President in 2008, is one of the members of the Bart Stupak contingent that abandoned their alleged pro-life beliefs to vote for statist health care in the House Sunday night."Monroerising news

There’s a problem with the news about that rock thrown. His office is on the 30th floor. So someone really had to have a good arm.. Maybe the major leagues need to look this person up..

WOW a POLITICIAN LIED.. I am so shocked..

"Andrew Breitbart Offers $10,000 for United Negro College Fund for audio proof of racial slurs directed at members of Congressional Black Caucus"

"It’s been almost a week since the alleged racial remarks were yelled at members of the Congressional Black Caucus as the members were coming for the meeting with Obama before the ObamaCARE vote. With all the cell phone cameras and digital cameras that are able to capture video clips, you would think by now that if these so called racist remarks were said, there videos and/or audio clips of it would be all over the Internet, all over the lame stream media, and direct quotes all over the newspapers. Strangely though, to do this day, that is still not the case. The allegations of racism are still there, still being used by the lame stream media, yet there is STILL no audio proof. So Andrea Breitbart, the man who along with James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles exposed Acorn for what they are last year has made an offer that surely no one can refuse, if these racial slurs were actually hurled at Congress members"

Yep the Teapartiers are a bunch of "Teabagging Redneck Racist" "It's all about hating a Blackman.." Janeane Garofalo

About that "30th floor" claim....

Yep I noticed that claim after

he made "his" gaff.. but note HE reported his Cincinnati office not the Hamilton County Democratic Party headquarters office.. Did he misspeak? Or did he make it up? Also note Media matters does not actually say he said the Hamilton County site.. the reporter said he believes the Times had it wrong.. Not very definitive was he?

Media Matters does however do one thing really really well.. Cover for Democrats/Liberals/Progressives.. No matter what is reported and sourced over and over you can be assured they will take the opposite view.

Example...

Charge: from Media Matters

"Glenn Beck has incorrectly stated that Van Jones is a Communist."

Answer: from Media Matters

"There's little question that Jones was an avowed communist."

Note the semantics.. Although old Van Jones himself never claims he is not now STILL a communist and has not since the charge claim it to be false.. Media Matters had to cover him for it..

I just finished book you should read. It is entitled: Intellectuals and Society by Thomas Sowell.

There are a number of books on the several issues raised in this book but I found this one to be particularly insightful and complete.

It explains the responses you get on a number of your posts. These people are not interested in facts and you will understand why once you have read this well thoughtout work.

So we can know where everyone is coming from, are you for or against all of these occurrences of vandalism and racism?
I have not heard you say even one of them could be true!

And if one is true is it OK?

Oh, they are all communists, socialists, or against the vaste majority of American citizens, anyway. Can't hurt none.

Bonkers.. Ok.. you ready

I formally denounce all acts of violence rather left or right by any parties for any reason..

Definitive for ya enough?

Now I do have a caveat.. Claims of violence/Racism without merit and or proof is just as bad as the actual acts..

Yes, for one side to make up an occurrence that did not happen at all would be as bad.
The problem comes from something sometimes did happen and more is made of it than should be.
Also, sometimes a bad thing did happen and it is written off as being taken too seriously since their side is always right to fight this crap any way they can! Refer to O'Reily, Limbaugh, Hannity, Coulter, Boortz, any FOX personality, Sharpton, Winfrey, Jessee, and several Congressmen and Senators.

The definitive answer

Newsbusters reports that the Seattle Times contacted the Bloomberg News service, the news service that supplied the original story. The Times editor said that the error was in Bloomberg's original reporting, and that Bloomberg corrected the original story to remove the 30th floor claim.

Never say I won't make a correction

if one is warranted...

"Correction: A story Thursday about vandalism and threats triggered by the health-care overhaul vote said a rock was thrown through the window of Ohio Democratic Rep. Steve Driehaus' Cincinnati office Sunday. The statement was attributed to Driehaus' spokesman Tim Mulvey. Mulvey said Friday that he was misquoted by Bloomberg. A rock was thrown through the window of Hamilton County Democratic Party headquarters in Cincinnati, Mulvey said."
