REAL mind control!

Modern "schools" tell you what you have to learn, when you have to learn it, how to learn it, and don't admit you've learned it till you pass their tests and they tell you you've learned it. In other words, the traditions of modern schooling have taken complete control of what you learn away from you and put it in other hands. This is a tremendous coup. And loss. AND mistake.  --L. Reichard White, The HI-JACKING of Civilization, Chapter 24, Going Native, October 22, 2007

Taxes: THE question - - -

Taxes: The question isn't "rich" or "poor" -- it's, "Who gets the money?" The answer is "government" -- which, in the case of the U.S. government, spends 43% of it on wars, past and present. --L. Reichard White, Wednesday, December 08, 2010 10:24 AM

Paranoid or crazy?

Descriptions of foreign leaders via the latest Wikileak's release of U.S. documents describes Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai as "paranoid."  Let's see, a U.S. puppet "leading" a tribal culture with U.S. guards for protection.  If he's NOT paranoid, he's crazy.  --L.

Does it bother you at all as a "taxpayer," that you (and your kids grand kids and the yet unborn) were involuntary "investors" in GM, AIG, Goldman Sachs, CITI, J.P. Morgan, Fanny & Freddy, etc?  And that Uncle Scam now considers investing your money in failing businesses as Standard Operating Procedure? --L. Reichard White, Sunday, November 21, 2010 10:58 AM

There's always a discount on an I.O.U.  The amount depends on its
perceived likely-hood of being paid.  The dollar is, in essence, such an
I.O.U.  The perception of repayment is dropping and you can follow it
by watching the value of dollars on the market.

What will they do AFTER decriminalization??

It's your DUTY!

When you're flying with small children, why do they tell you to put on your oxygen mask first in an emergency? 

ANSWER: Because the children might not be able to take care of themselves - - - and if you don't take care of yourself first, you might not be able to either. This applies in a LOT of situations.  So, especially if you're going to help others, it's your duty to take care of yourself first.

The exhorbitant costs of "free" government schools

Relative to education especially, money appropriated rather than earned in a competitive free-market freezes evolution, stifles improvement, and condemns our children to deteriorating lives in a deteriorating society. --L. Reichard White, Friday, July 30, 2010 11:25 AM

OK. If you INSIST on taking politics & politicians seriously, BY THEIR ACTIONS, comparing Mr. Bush to Mr. Obama is like trying to decide whether Richard Spec was worse than Charles Manson.

The most dangerous person on earth is the arrogant intellectual who lacks the humility necessary to see that society needs no masters and cannot be planned from the top down. --Friedrich von Hayek

For all our revolutionary heritage, Americans in general seem to have this odd, misplaced, unblinking, and often unconscious respect for credentialed authority, apparently thinking that credentials and expertise somehow cleanse people from the baser parts of human nature like self-willed agendas, petty backbiting, authoritarian behavior, the brazen seeking of power, a cultic mentality, etc....  --Michael Miles

Afghanistan bottom-line

“The entire COIN strategy [the COunterINsurgency strategy engineered by Petraeus and McCrystal] is a fraud perpetuated on the American people,” says Douglas Macgregor, a retired colonel and leading critic of counterinsurgency who attended West Point with McChrystal. “The idea that we are going to spend a trillion dollars to reshape the culture of the Islamic world is utter nonsense.” –-The Runaway General, Stanley McChrystal By Michael Hastings, Rolling Stone, Jun 22, 2010 10:00 AM EDT

Where unfettered markets come from

Unfettered markets occur when governments protect sellers from buyers by passing laws. Almost  invariably, laws protect sellers more than buyers because sellers can afford lobbyists. Otherwise, buyers put unruly sellers out of business in short order by taking their business elsewhere. --L. Reichard White, Sunday, June 06, 2010 8:53 AM
