What Does Societal Collapse and Martial Law Look Like?

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

According to a survey conducted by the Adelphi University Center for Health Innovation, 55 percent of Americans believe that the government will come to their rescue when the proverbial poop hits the fan because your big brother really cares. Literally, every alternative media outlet could show conclusive proof that an EMP was going to wipe out the power grid. We could conclusively prove that nuclear bombs were going off in 39 American cities in the most horrific false flag attack in world history and it would not make any difference to 55% of all Americans because of their cognitive dissonance.

The United States is staring at an economic collapse in the face with its $17 trillion dollar deficit, $238 trillion dollars of unfunded mandates (e.g. social security, Medicare, etc.) and a one quadrillion dollar derivatives debt in which the governments of the world are being forced to assume in the form of the “bailouts”. Even if Obama and his bankster puppet masters never had any intention of executing a false flag event in order to put this country into martial law in order to fully complete the coup d’état that is already underway, a crash is coming. The banks are going to collapse, the people will riot, there will be food shortages, whether they be planned or unplanned. I do, however, believe that food will undoubtedly be used to control the unruly masses, despite the DHS and their new found friends in the Chinese and Russian personnel which are on our soil.

Are you prepared? At the bottom of this article, I will visually demonstrate to the reader with real time examples of human behavior in groups, how each of us are going to be in very grave danger when the collapse comes. But first, let’s analyze America’s present level of individual and collective preparedness.

How Prepared Is America?

The Adelphi University research center tells us that 53% of all Americans do not have a three day supply of nonperishable food and water in their homes. FEMA and DHS are not about serving the needs of the American people; These agencies are about preserving the status quo of the powers that be. But don’t try and tell that to 55% of the citizens of this country.

Most Likely Causes of a Societal Breakdown

As the TV show by the same name, there are literally a 1,000 ways to die. The following six events represent some of the most likely events which would mortally wound our society.

1. False flag attack as a result of a chemical and biological attack

2. False flag attack as a result of a series of nuclear explosions

3. World War III

4. EMP attack

5. Economic collapse

6. Military coup resulting in civil war

America’s Level of Preparedness

A brief summation of the Adelphi study reveals the following:

  • 44 percent don’t have first-aid kits
  • 48 percent lack emergency supplies
  • 53 percent do not have a minimum three-day supply of nonperishable food and water at home
  • 55 percent believe local authorities will come to their rescue if disaster strikes

This means that 56% of those with first-aid kits, 52% of those with emergency supplies, and 47% of those who have more than three days worth of water, will be victimized by those who have not properly planned. Please allow me to put this into a real number for you. Over 130 million teenagers and adults will be in the streets seeking to obtain life-sustaining resources in a very short time following the disaster event. This is a train wreck starting to happen.

Time Frame for Societal Breakdown

Those that would be fortunate enough to survive the initial event, or series of events, would face the following timetable of events.

In the first one to two days, all shelves would be emptied of food, water, guns and medical supplies. There will be no resupply as nothing will be shipped.

On the beginning of the third day, individuals will be in the streets scavenging for anything they can find that will keep themselves and their families alive. If there is a loss of power, many will die as a result of exposure to the elements.

By the fifth day, desperate people will organize into collectives (i.e. gangs) and will go house to house looking for stored supplies from the half that has somewhat prepared. Neighborhoods will begin to organize themselves into local vigilante groups for protection from local gangs who have become desperate. This is the day that many of the police walked off the job in New Orleans in order to protect their families. Groups of police could become the most dangerous groups in society.

In the days that follow, nobody can be trusted. There will be people who will dress up in official looking uniforms (e.g. military, national guard, police) in order to gain entry into a fortified home.

The game changing event will be a civil war. Not only will you have to deal with marauding hordes of resource deficient people, you could also be caught in the crossfire between two, or more warring armies.

Casualty Rates

1. World War III. The casualty estimates dating back to the 1960’s and 1970’s related to an all-out nuclear war was placed at 150 million Americans or at 80-85%.

2. False flag attack as a result of a series of nuclear explosions. The casualty rate is indeterminable and would depend of the number of cities involved and their relative populations and the size and placement of the nuclear device. Generally speaking, one nuclear device in a city the size of Phoenix would kill 20,000 to 100,000 people. Many more would die in the upcoming weeks due to the effects of radiation.

3. False flag attack as a result of a chemical and biological attack. The casualty rates are indeterminable but past pandemics have wiped out one-third to 40% of a society.

4. EMP attack. The Naval War College tells us that within two years of a power grid take down, that 90% of us would be dead.

5. Military coup resulting in civil war. The casualty rates of war as well as civilians victimizing each other would be impossible to calculate. Conservative estimates would place the rate at 5% to 25%.

6. Economic collapse. It is impossible to exactly determine. I think a safe bet would place this event in the category of a false flag “cyber attack” upon Wall Street and the Banking system. Or, the world totally moves away from the Petrodollar causing our currency to hyper-inflate. The resulting casualty rates would be difficult to calculate. The government would be able to establish order following a brutal crackdown. However, in our weakened state, we would be inviting an invasion. A civil war could break out as well.

What Will the Riots Look Like?

NORTHCOM, DHS, FEMA and the Russians have all practiced on quelling domestic disturbances and conducting gun confiscation. Even the elite have gathered their own private armies in preparation for the same civil unrest.

Unfortunately, DHS is not releasing any videos which demonstrate the severity of the civilian uprising that they are practicing for. However, we do have some Black Friday “drills” which exemplify how crazy it will get in the first few hours of a societal breakdown.

The following video is from the 2012 version of Black Friday. It raises the question, that if people will act like animals with depraved indifference towards the welfare of their fellow human beings in the first few minutes of a Black Friday sale, what will they do when it comes to food, water and guns?

If you think that this phenomena is just confined to 2012, think again. The following two videos from last year’s version of Black Friday.

Conclusion

At minimum, there is an economic collapse in our near future with the massive debt which is unsustainable. The presence of the NDAA and EO 13603 speaks to the government’s plans to deal forcefully with any disturbances. The preparation by DHS is unmistakable with its acquisition of over two billion rounds of ammunition and 2700 armored personnel carriers. And when we see foreign troops (e.g. the Russians and the Chinese), we should all be gravely concerned. Additionally, FEMA,  and DHS, both last and this year have engaged in a seemingly endless set of disaster planning drills which parallels the content of this article.

To the 55% who are clueless, take out an insurance policy and begin to store food, water guns and ammunition. To everyone else, who has at least some idea of what is going on, begin to reach out to your neighbors because you will need the additional safety that numbers can bring.

And what will the resulting martial law look like? A clear picture of this eventuality is beginning to emerge and that will be the topic of the next part in this series.

Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)

Everything needs perspective. How did we get here? Perspective allows us to see the difference of then and now, over an extended period, something hard to see when change is slow and measured over several generations. Personal perspective also has the ability to cancel out the rewriting of history or the heavy hand of media propaganda.

I have lived for three generations and would now respectfully offer my personal perspective of what I have seen transpire over this time-frame. This is by no means a detailed perspective, that would require a book … but it is enough to make a blatant point. For those who will disagree or push back, I would simply ask … How long have you been asleep?

Mid 1950s – 1970

I can remember as a youngster people would talk about millionaires as if they were somehow supernatural, with all the money in the world !!

I can still hear my father telling me that if he had a million dollars in the bank, he could live comfortably off the interest for the rest of his life without ever touching the principal.

Everyone who wanted a job had one. Supporting a family on a one income was doable with reasonable comfort. Welfare and unemployment were a still a problem of the future, Social Security was paid into a special fund that the government was not to touch, to be available as a safety net when you retired.

If the government ran a deficit in the tens of millions my parents would have freaked and wondered where this country was headed, and a billion was a number the average citizen couldn’t conceive of in its immensity.

America was loved and admired across the world … this was the place to be, to raise children, to dream.

The people were proud and happy.

1970 – 1990

I enlisted in the Navy at seventeen years of age. A sizable portion of this nation rails against one war, Vietnam, and forces government to hear us.

Millionaires were not that uncommon and the term “billionaire” was still just creeping into our vocabulary. I can remember a local radio talk show host saying that a new millionaire was created in this country every three days; wow, who would have thought?

We suffered through a choreographed oil shortage that forced us to economize our vehicles and our homes.

The average Joe had a good paying manufacturing job and enjoyed a decent lifestyle.

If we ran a multi-billion dollar deficit the government said it was good for the economy.

The military industrial complex and pharmaceutical industry were beginning to buy massive influence and flexing their new found political power.

Billionaires were the new Gods of money, and, as we were starting to realize, wielded some serious political clout.

This was the beginning of the me generation.

The people were cautious.

1990 – 2000

I was working for the military industrial complex, making great money and helping to arm every nation and faction with weapons (ally or not) these companies and our government could sell them to.

The term “billionaire” was becoming commonplace and familiar to the masses. A published article stated that a millionaire was created in this country every day and money and material possessions ruled society.

Credit was damn easy to get, and these were the decades of mass consumption.

The budget was balanced for the first time in a long time; but then, more and more jobs began moving overseas because labor was so cheap, and corporations began to show their true greed.

Oil and cheap products were flowing into this country at an alarming rate, building a dependency that threatened our balance of trade and economic stability.

The military industrial complex and pharmaceutical industry were making serious and deep inroads into the government, acquiring serious political clout and favor all without the average citizen having much of a clue.

The people were concerned.

2000 – 2010

We survived the doomsday event of Y2K.

I was running my own little computer consulting company and scratching to make ends meet.

Millionaires were commonplace and no big deal. Billionaires were plentiful and credit was cheap.

The housing bubble burst (intentionally) and wiped out a lot of the average Joes, the semi-well to do and many of the then common millionaires.

More and more of the common folk were out of work, and getting another job meant settling for less.

Big banks were failing, but receiving bailouts from their political cronies regardless of their blatant mismanagement, while We The People fell further into debt and relative poverty.

The military industrial complex was raking in billions from multiple wars that worked to their advantage. Pharmaceutical giants were now buying government favor at a rate five times what the military industrial complex could muster. Multinational Corporations now have a visible strangle hold on the government.

Budget deficits skyrocketed as the government tried to buy their way out of a hole they had dug, due to a “push it back” or “kick the can down the road” mentality combined with severe cronyism and incompetency.

Nearly every politician had his hand in the cookie jar and their time in Washington was consumed with padding their retirement instead of why they were sent there in the first place.

America was now officially an Oligarchy.

The people were waking up!!

2010 – present

I have now worked for two companies that have gone out of business because they can no longer compete in a global economy.

More than one out of five adult males is out of work and true unemployment (not the MSM reported stats) is over that observed in the great depression (23%). A large portion of this demographic is either collecting long term unemployment or some form of benefits from a government that is broke, and many are faced with very few prospects of ever regaining their past standard of living.

The talk of recession turns to talk of depression as more people exhaust their unemployment benefits or give up trying to ever find gainful employment again.

The big banks and global financiers have as great a strangle hold on the economy as the military industrial complex and pharmaceutical industry does on the government.

Our national credit rating has been lowered for the first time in history, and Washington’s answer is to borrow more money, or to raise the debt ceiling to heights generations to come will be severely burdened with.

Congress is impotent due to severe infighting, special deal making, and finger pointing. We now talk about yearly deficits using the term multiple trillions, a mind boggling number we could not even have conceived of a generation before!

You can’t drive through any city of size without seeing factory after factory closed down, abandoned due to the failure of American competitiveness, or beggars and the homeless on most street corners panhandling just to stay alive.

America, once seen as the shining castle on the hill, is now looked on as an out of control monster, or the proverbial bully on the block. War protests are almost non existent even-though we are involved in hostilities across the globe both overtly and covertly leaving millions of dead innocents (collateral damage) in our wake.

A college graduate is now competing with the out of work professional with thirty years of experience willing to work for peanuts. A full time job with benefits is now seen as a gift from the all-mighty. Our once globally admired middle class falters and shrinks.

The person who has worked hard all his life has seen his pension destroyed by greedy, inept bankers, while the average Joe who is about to retire wonders if the Social Security fund he has paid into all his life has been so badly abused and raided by the government that it will fail him when he needs it most to survive.

I founded The Liberty Beacon project to awaken the sleepers to the disintegration of America with the hope and belief that it is not too late.

The people are angry!

Today

In a mere three generations, a blink of the eye by historical standards, I have personally watched the proudest, most powerful, healthiest and prosperous  country in the history of this planet knocked to its knees by power grabbing, greed, and gross mismanagement and all to the benefit of a very select few!

I will always be proud to be an American, but there are so many Americans today that I can never be proud of!

It’s time to wake up America !!!

Now how is that for Perspective ???

dumb

Pharmaceutical Drugs, Vaccines, Fluoride, Processed foods, Aspartame, MSM Entertainment (programming), Video games, Common Core, etc… all influencing and culminating in a society that is far less proactive or even reactive, than any before it in this nations history.

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

This article was originally published in August of 2014. I felt it needed more exposure as the situation explained here has not improved, if anything it has become more dire. Nothing contained here required updating, but still some was added. The message remains as pertinent today as it was one year ago.

There was a point in our history when Americans were considered among the most well educated and aware societies on this planet; those days are gone. The American system of education is now a global joke, as it should be. But the most dangerous aspect of this realization is, it is intentional.

Common Core and its supporting curriculum is now the purveyor of the American education standard, and it is growing in influence daily, facilitated by grants (bribes) via the federal government to cash strapped states. This departure from a well proven system of teaching is written and implemented via the corporatocracy and propagated by entities such as Bill Gates, NOT by the long established system of education.

The goal of this endeavor is to churn out average students capable of satisfying the needs of said mega corporations, but without the ambition, knowledge or drive to challenge the system. People who are unaware of what freedom, liberty and unbridled ambition truly are, will not strive for it and the end result is a passive and complacent population that knows its place in the hierarchy.

The days of parents’ involvement in the education of their children (helping with homework or staying in contact with their educators), are almost gone as more and more parents must work longer hours and even multiple jobs to maintain a reasonable standard of living. This is a mistake beyond reckoning, but again falls within the plans design.

We trust and accept that the education our children are receiving is the best and complimentary to their future needs. Nothing could be further than the truth! The education presented today is no longer in the best interest of these children, it is in the best interest of the corporatocracy facilitating that education, and this does NOT bode well for our children or their future, as you are about to see.

What you are about to experience is funny from a very sad perspective, and tragic on so many levels. You can’t make this stuff up! If I were to publish an article describing what you are about to see for yourself, it would be trashed on every forum as a blatant exaggeration or outright fabrication. Yet these children are permitted to graduate because by the standards of our system of education in America today … they are ready?

If you can control the minds of children, within a generation you will control the population.

Witness the successful Dumbing Down of America

And this is just a sample … WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA !!!

Updated 08/20/2015

This article was originally published about 30 months ago but has been updated and republished twice since. The message has no expiration, date and is even more vital today then when it was originally written. America is in trouble and at a point not too long ago, even I could not see through the veil of lies! Here is iteration #3 …

****************

I have sailed through life, as so many of us have done, feeling that my decisions and the path that I have steered was a sound one. But as I sat here reflecting on all of the things that I have accomplished, and all the things I have failed to … the more I thought and reminisced, the more my thoughts drifted to, and finally coalesced on, the state of this union and I had an Epiphany …

I WAS WRONG!

Now before you react to that comment, let me give you some details to help bring this commentary along. Please bear with me.

****************

When I was young I used to read stories about the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and their fanatical ideals of Communism, and how they spread their ideology by aggression like a dark cancer, attacking the forces of good and light throughout the world. For every regional skirmish they started, we would jump in and counter their aggression. Around the world, we were loved and admired! I knew that wherever there was evil in the world we, the United States Of America, would be there in all our righteous splendor to do battle with these fiends, defend the innocent, and bring freedom and liberty to all!

Today, I look at the world without those rose colored glasses, and what I see is well over a million Iraqis dead or maimed for life, and how many in Afghanistan, Pakistan or Libya … etc… and all for what, because that has never truly been justified to We the People? A sizable and growing portion of the world is staring back at us, their eyes burning with the same hatred and contempt that I used to feel for the Soviet empire when I was young.

I WAS WRONG!

I can remember when I was in high school, trying for the first time to figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, and thinking this is America! We are the richest and most productive society on the face of this planet. We have the money, resources, ingenuity, production capacity, and the imagination to reach for the lofty goals that many other countries can only dream of! We sent men to the bottom of the ocean, to the moon, and scientifically explored remotely every planet in the solar system! We would always be rich, resourceful, and extremely productive!

Today, I see our manned space program all but shut down and forgotten, American astronauts ride into space on Russian rockets, our mortal enemy and biggest competitor on the world stage only scant years ago. I see a huge influx of foreign students yearning to educate themselves and return to their countries, because opportunities are growing more scarce by the day here; but worst of all, I can drive by any large city and see one factory after another, closed down and locked up because we, as a nation, are no longer productive enough in many areas to compete on a global scale, or Obamacare is driving them offshore in droves. This unparalleled and mighty industrial engine, this ability to produce had built a middle class so powerful in this country it was the envy of all the world, and it is evaporating before our eyes.

I WAS WRONG!

I can remember, as a young adult, reading Fortune magazine’s stories about the abundance of American dollars flooding the world. Rich Americans and American companies traveling the globe, buying land, foreign corporations, Hell, damn near whole countries! The dollar was the only true global currency, and was accepted almost anywhere. A fist full of dollars bought more than a bushel basket of rubles! We, as a country, were rich, generous, and philanthropic. Our ability to innovate, manufacture, and distribute on a global scale was unchallenged! Hell, we would always be the eight hundred pound gorilla on the block, and we used that to our advantage.

Today, I see less and less American companies do any real manufacturing in the states, but instead buy components from China, Japan, or third world countries, and only do final assembly in the US. The dollar is a mere shadow of what it was a scant few years ago. Our national credit rating (which, as the worlds biggest debtor nation, is critical to us) is on a slide southward that will not stop unless we get our collective heads out of our butts real soon. Worst of all is China, the one country which presents the biggest threat to our productivity, national wealth, and (some would say) soon our military, is also our biggest creditor, holding well over one trillion American dollars.

I WAS WRONG!

I used to think that we had the best form of governance on this planet, a Republic that would easily stand the test of time! A real example to the rest of the world in how WE THE PEOPLE should govern, not be governed. We shared freedoms that most others only dream of, and we certainly did thrive!

Today, I search for the root of our problems and find a significant blame lays squarely on us, ourselves. We the People through apathy and our disconnection from the political system, our utter and blind faith in the corrupt and greedy politicians we send to represent us, our almost total failure to hold these supposed leaders accountable has allowed the inevitable, the accumulation and concentration of power away from us and unto themselves.

More to the point, our elected leaders share complicity in greed, self preservation and multi-layered tyranny! We operate on two cycles in the game of politics in this country, and they are “election time” and “preparing for election time”. This hardly leaves time to solve the national problems that have been constantly kicked down the road, because if you have to make a tough decision, for the good of this country, but not necessarily the good of your masters (contributors and corporate cronies), your chances for re-election may suffer or evaporate. What this does is invite constant finger pointing, rampant cronyism, and a government that accomplishes very little for you and me, but much for the corporatists and their elite masters, and thus our government becomes effectively … ineffective! We are giving up more of our freedom and rights on a daily basis due to fear of a non-existent enemy, apathy or complacency, and our leadership is corrupt, stagnant and totally ineffective.

I WAS WRONG!

So I started to look for solutions, and (try as I may) have only been able to come up with one I have any level of confidence in at all. We the people must unify our voices and push back while we still have any chance of success, because although one voice may speak, many unified voices can roar, and dammit it is time to ROAR because …

I AM SO DAMN SICK AND TIRED OF BEING WRONG !!!

Is he riding into the 2016 election on a white or a Trojan Horse?

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

When we were young, our mothers changed our diapers and tried to meet every need. When we went to school, most of our teachers tried their best to help us learn and grow. When we skinned our knees, the school nurse was there to wash out the wound and put a Band-Aid on it. Most Americans love the idea that there is some benevolent figure out there who will ride in on his white horse and save the day. How many white horses do you see outside the White House, or Congress? There are no white horses out there that are going swoop in at the midnight hour and save the day.

Donald Trump Rides In On His White Horse?

Donald Trump wants to build a bigger border fence. He says he wants to make government responsible to the middle class! (Excuse me, Mr. Trump, what middle class or you talking about?). Trump is making all the rude comments, to the other presidential candidates, that most of us wish we could say if we had access. John McCain has been the frequent target of Trump’s tirades and I must admit I have enjoyed every moment of every unkind word uttered about McCain. McCain is the reason that yours truly is in the Independent Media as 13 years ago, McCain and his globalist lackeys tried to steal my house and the houses of 2,000 of my neighbors in rural Arizona. So, I freely admit, that Mr. Trump went to the head of the class on my hit parade when he took on McCain. And in particular Mr. Trump has been excoriating Hillary Clinton. Clinton is in Trumps cross-hairs and it looks like nothing will save her. If there is a more unlikeable and treacherous candidate for the office of the President than Hillary Clinton, I would be at a loss to tell you who that is.

However, when Trump’s rhetoric fades away and Common Sense prevails, Trump’s so-called Presidential run must be looked at with suspicion.

White Horse or Trojan Horse?

Friend or Foe?

Friend or Foe?

There is only one thing worse than the Obama Presidency and that would be for it to be followed with a Hillary Clinton Presidency. Corruption, scandal and untimely deaths follow her wherever she goes.

Trump has a long association with the Clinton family that extends beyond the professional to even the personal.

Hillary Clinton attended Donald Trump’s 2005 wedding to current wife in Florida. Hillary Clinton had front-pew seating at the event. Even Bill Clinton, not a person known for respecting the sanctity of marriage, showed up for the reception.

Trump has been generous in towards the Clinton’s in the past as he has donated over $100,000 to the Clinton’s foundation. And as a former Senator from New York, Hillary Clinton has responded in kind as she left many of the Trump real estate deals alone when she could have a negative impact.

Trump’s Trojan Horse Strategy

There’s little doubt that Hillary’s private email usage related to classified and top secret material has hurt her campaign. Five months after reports that she’d used the private email, Hillary is need of a great distraction and Donald Trump is providing that interference. Yes, Trump has called out Clinton, but his main efforts have been to focus on “rogue” Republicans such as John McCain. As the primary race unfolds, Trump will almost exclusively focus on destroying all other Republican candidates. And the strategy is working. The Pew Poll shows that Trump has a double digit lead among the Republican front runners.

Even Joe Biden is carrying out his role as he is providing the most unattractive candidate that Democrats could muster which is the goal. Hillary’s campaign cannot stand any legitimate competition given the current political climate.

You Don’t Matter

The office of the President is beyond the reach of the American people. It will take an estimated one billion dollars to run for President in 2016. The middle class will not be providing the bulk of these donations.

Just who does control the Presidency?

Since the “financial depression of 2008, the most powerful rich people have only gotten more powerful. A 2013 Oxfam report found that 80 people had as much wealth as 50% of humanity, and a few months later, Forbes said the number had dropped to 67.  Sixty seven people have as much wealth as 3.6 billion people on the wealth. That is your answer as to who controls the presidency of this country. These 67 people control the bulk of what you read, see and hear. The masses will learn nothing new from a Trump candidacy. He is the modern day Ross Perot. He will split the Republican vote and Hillary can make emailgate go away, she will the next President as a result of this strategy.

Conclusion

If Donald Trump was sincere about helping the American people, he would be talking about the dangers of the TPP every single day. He would be promising reform in our food system and ridding the country of cancer-causing GMO’s. Trump has done little more than attack the safe political issues. The masses of Americans who are still living in the matrix, will be none the wiser from listening to Donald Trump.

When the elite decide that Hillary Clinton will be President, she will be President. By allowing the media to expose Hillary’s treasonous email indiscretions, she is easily controllable by the elite. And if the elite decide that Hillary’s scandals are serving to wake up too many people with regard to the tyranny that has overtaken this country, Hillary will go to prison.

In either case, Donald Trump will not be the President. And even if he were a legitimate candidate, he would not become President because he would end up like Bobby Kennedy.

For Hillary, she is either going to be the next president, or she will have done to her what Richard Nixon should have happened, she will go to prison. Donald may not be sincere about his Presidential run, but he is a good friend. And right now, he is the only friend that matters to Hillary Clinton.

Ostrich Syndrome

See Episode #1 of TLBTV Eradicating Programmed Ignorance at the bottom of of this article …

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

Updated 08/15/2015

Many of my fellow citizens don’t have a clue as to what is actually happening to them, their freedoms or rights, or their very health … but the most damning consideration here is … most don’t want a, or pretend not to have a, clue!

Tell me just how clueless they can actually be when they know exactly what and who to avoid to keep themselves out of the governments eye, or off government lists of radicals, conspiracy theorists, possible domestic terrorists or no fly lists. The obvious answer is … to keep yourself off the governments radar … you must know what said government is looking for.

Enemies of the State

This brings to mind what I like to refer to as the “Ostrich Syndrome”, an affliction far too many in America suffer from via fear, apathy, complacency or complicity. No, Big Pharmaceutical has no drug or vaccine for this affliction, and the government’s prescription is More Propaganda forcing them into a heightened level of this syndrome.

Flanders and Swann – The Ostrich Song

We have all seen the pictures of an ostrich hiding its head in the ground to avoid discovery by a dangerous predator. Yet to make the decision to hide from an eminent danger, they first have to be aware, on some level, that the danger exists. Obviously this form of defense is worthless as hiding ones head only increases the danger to oneself because you cannot see the danger approaching, nor can you defend yourself from it. In essence this makes you a more opportune and  stationary target.

Those who feel they have nothing to fear if they are doing nothing wrong, or by avoiding the truths they are at least marginally aware of, they will keep themselves safe, are doomed by their display of passivity to be enslaved and used in any fashion a tyrant sees fit.

Fear of association

These are the people, try as we may, we cannot seem to reach to educate or awaken. These are the people who this tyranny has not influenced enough yet, and just maybe … These are the cannon fodder in any coming struggle.

America is on the verge of economic collapse, global war, and health disaster. We are perpetuating hostilities across the globe, our allies are deserting us in droves, our dollar is a paper tiger propped up by the military might the oligarchs who own this country wield, and our health has fallen from the best on this planet to what most would comfortably say is the worst, and all in about three generations.

If you finally wake up

What I present to you now is a plethora of information on the disaster America steadily drives toward, and who is driving the bus.

HINT: hiding your head in the sand WONT KEEP YOU SAFE !!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A $100,000,000,000,000 economic extinction level event is about to descend on America. D.U.M.B.S (Deep Underground Military Bases) are already being prepared (FACT) for the high level government officials, the military hierarchy and elites to ride out the massive civil unrest to closely follow this unavoidable event.

FEMA camps are ready across the country, and the unprecedented arming of government non-military forces (DHS, TSA, IRS, etc …) intended only for use against We The People is all but complete. This is not a guess but is easily substantiated … Please watch …

Habeas Corpus, Due Process, and so much more has gone up in smoke via the Patriot act, the NDAA and traitorous and unconstitutional Executive Orders.

Where were the congressional defenders of the constitution, the Supreme court push back, or the outcry from the mainstream media … crickets chirp … And now we live under an oligarchy (Princeton study), a Totalitarian government … Please watch …

Obama and his staunch anti-colonialist views instilled by his communist father and mentors in his formative years has lead to his egregious spending, bankrupting America (just about doubled national debt of all presidents before him combined). This is facilitating the redistribution of wealth away from America to the rest of the world and collapsing the US economy. Debt is Obama’s weapon for the redistribution of wealth away from America.

America has also inherited more enemies under Obama’s leadership than ever in our history, and we now back and support both monetarily and militarily some of the most radical Muslim factions in existence … Please watch …

This last video requires no introduction. This documentary lays out the plans for bringing America to her knees. A role our president was selected and groomed for by the caste who call themselves the elite.

These elitists have clearly stated that a New World Order cannot be instituted unless or until America (especially the powerful middle class) is first brought to her knees. A clear signal to the rest of the world that if the freedom loving and powerful Americans cannot hold out against the NWO … what chance do they have … Please watch …

Never before in the history of this great nation has America been attacked both from outside and within with such calculated tenacity and intention!

Today we as a nation stand on the very precipice of total collapse. This is not a theory, a joke, a lie or even an exaggeration … this is a fact that can be easily seen by any who …

Don’t have their head buried in the sand like …

Those Who Suffer, The Ostrich Syndrome !!!

Here we present you with the premier show of TLBTV: “Eradicating Programmed Ignorance”. Hopefully this will give some ideas as to what TLB is doing, and you can do, to overcome this blight on American society …

When you hit the play button on this outstanding and inspiring video please understand … This is not about the military or military power. This is not about politics or political power. This is not about wealth or the power of money. This is about humanity and the power of our hearts and souls … The absolute power to change the world for generations … for millions and maybe even billions.

That power is contained in each and every one of us, if we have the inner strength to call if forth … There isn’t one among us who cant take a lesson away from this great speech. But if you listen and come to the conclusion there was nothing here for you … I can all but guarantee you will have very little influence in helping to change this world …

So please take less than twenty minutes from your busy day and listen to some hard earned and well used wisdom, wisdom that may just navigate you onto the path of making a serious difference in a chaotic world in serious need of changing.

Monsters under the bed 1

Are we on the verge of finding, or losing America?

By TLB Contributor: Ken LaRive

As I have moved among my fellow human beings, several elements I have learned from the experience is ultimate truth, and it is found all around the world, and in every culture…. When you display to another person that you truly love them, unless they are mentally damaged or a human deviant, they will respond in like kind. If you truly respect a person, and with love in your heart, promote their finer side, they will, in most every case, do the same to you… Ask yourself, in your own life, how can it be otherwise? A genuine smile in front of a loving heart will pierce another soul. What you give is the seed for the life you will grow, and yet, we must admit that some men will not respond to this… where Love is an alien concept. These men, and throughout all of history, have developed another mindset… the mindset of a reprobate, and they have plagued mankind from time immemorial. Men who have lost their way…

My definition of what it means to be a man is quite simple. It is a person who consciously chooses to accept responsibility for his own actions. Sure, sounds too simple, but this is at the core of every person… Of course this responsibility is self-designed, and different for each individual, but the concept of this duty remains constant, as the universal law of attraction.

Some try to promote what they consider to be good and right, with an amazing goal to be effectively selfless, where personal welfare is secondary to the common good, for family, country, and their God, but not always in that order, of course. This is the ideal of a hero, of honor without laurels, and they have pushed the envelop to the very limit, in war surely. but being a good husband and father too. I call them men of light. Men who are self directed… They believe that if one can find little to die for, there is little to live for.

Others find their moral code, or compass, on their selves, and forsake all empathy and responsibility for their own general welfare. They tend to place little or nothing in this life above immediate personal gratification, and since they can find little, if anything, greater than themselves, they are pulled through life by the many hooks that enslave them. They need direction, a power they trust to follow. There is hope for them, and some will gain a higher consciousness with time, and this powerful Love, I call Agape, can be understood by them in a flash of insight. These are our human brothers, no matter how lost they may find themselves.

What is this Love?

Some think that Love is a man-made concept, and an ultimate societal survival tool, and like nothing else, the veritable force that holds our humanity together. Others define Love to be God inspired… But Love, no matter the source, is not profitable in a world that judges value by a black bottom line, and some, who grasp this dark shadow as their own, no longer respond to Love, even denying it exists as they laughingly thwart its positive effects.

In our world, Love is not our guiding force, fear is. Fear is the primary factor, the underlining motivator for every human deed. If an institution can promote fear, and it is unresolved, people will do anything to survive, even living in slavery. This is the fuel for all power and control. And yet, when you find something higher than yourself to fight for, fear dissipates.

A monster.

There is another human entity who lives in the folds of our humanity, and they can only be described as monsters. I call them men of shadows, because the are so very good at hiding. In fact, this degenerate race of men not only vie to control the entire world with their evil mindset, but will use our own free will of Love to control us. They will use a mother’s love to sell a bogus drug or inoculation, a father’s responsibility to protect his family, while stripping them both of freedom and liberty… They will try to control, by subliminal messaging, the minds of our children from a black box in our living room, or through the institution of indoctrination in the guise of education … And they do far worse: they enslave by debt, and seek to control our very souls by their lascivious media lies. wrathful and vengeful violence as entertainment, and atrocious propaganda and pornography that can reach those we try to protect. In the process of this convolution, from every direction, they win over a portion of our weakest humanity to do their evil bidding, and they mimic the very mindset of their masters. Look around, you will see these zombies everywhere. Mindless, and without a will of their own… they are mostly incapable of an original thought, and so make the perfect slave.

Ethics.

One might make the argument that selfless men are more capable of finding joy in their lives, something considered long-lasting. It is stated that this super Love, called agape, can be attained only by a pure self-less spirit, and though unattainable by the fallibility of men, it is his ultimate goal, and reason for being… But who, as a human being, can define themselves by ether of these strict descriptions? All of us are a complex combination of both, depending on life’s circumstances, and teachings. The Catholic Ideology of Situation Ethics is, to me, a good description of these selfless/selfish expressions, where we mix up good and bad and right and wrong. Situation Ethics is a worthy study, a method to find strength, conviction, and solace in your life. You don’t have to be a Catholic to see this Philosophy, as it is a description of our spiritual and intellectual side, working in conjunction.

In the shadow of monsters?

A study of the world of men show that these life-personifications might not be flexible enough to withstand the constant onslaught of a power-structure designed to thrive in a world of ciaos. There is little profit in peace, earnings have no stop if unchecked, and it seems that to battle an all consuming fire, fire must be used. But this would indeed change the righteous man to be a monster too, even as in their heart they know that light will curse the darkness… Men of shadows know that to control a populous, Love will have to be eliminated, and when civilizations are bombed into oblivion, killing their loved ones in the process, only monsters will survive. Men will pick up arms and travel across a continent killing everything in their wake, as we see now in the Middle East, and they are putty in the hands of the monster men of shadows… because they have nothing else to lose. Their lives are masterfully manipulated in the shadows their masters cast…

The tools of our shadow masters…

Who, as you stand among your fellow men, have found true solace? Who have found peace and harmony in their hearts? Loved ones get sick and die, years of hard work will vanish from savings in a trend, and we grasp the fearful unknown with blind faith as our eminent death weighs heavy. We hope our faith is the one true faith, and it will insure that we live forever in peace without suffering, and in the process to find this nebulous solace, our mind becomes glaciated, galvanized in fear to believe you have found the ultimate truth… And as time moves fast, we are told that we must make a decision before we die, as after will be too late… and we are told not to waste these waning moments that grow more and more precious with each passing day… And as we see the light in this metaphorical tunnel grow brighter and more vivid in our mind’s eye… we become more desperate, more opinionated, less tolerant of other faiths, as we try to quell the fear buried in our hearts… These are but some of the tools that monsters use to control us… One philosopher of antiquity addressed these inhibitors to happiness and Joy, and was Thomas Jefferson’s favorite philosopher writer, other than the teachings of Jesus… They called him Epicurus, and he is another worthy study.

Our human breed, and the question of identity..

Let us consider the feminist movement, the civil rights movement, The Labor movement, The Skeptical movement, The Tea Party Movement, The Liberty Movement, The Progressive movement, The Libertarian Movement, The Neoconservative Movement, the Communistic Movement, the Socialistic movement, the Anti-globalization Movement, the Anti-nuclear Movement, the Anti-consumerism Movement, the 9/11 Truth Movement, the Arab Spring Movement, the Zionist Movement, the Anti-war Movement, the Civil Rights Movement, the Black Consciousness Movement, as they all beg a question: Are they freeing us, giving us Liberty from tyranny? Or are they wrapping our society in a straight-jacket, a cocoon wound tight with intolerant separation and voluntary servitude… To say for instance that Liberty is God given, and yet must be fought for with each generation, inhibits us from ever enjoying true Liberty, as we are in constant war to keep it. If our objective is to find Joy and peace, it indicates we can never relax, never trust, never stop questioning reality. Is there something of a higher order that can help us to cope, to give solace, and strength of purpose? Yes, yes, there is.

Beyond human ken.

Men have evolved and developed specific innate characteristics, though mostly denied today, and these distinctions have helped protect him and family in what one may consider a mostly inhospitable world. He found that when he used his spiritual side for hope and strength of purpose, and balanced it with a new-found intellect, they enabled him to be creative and visionary. With these tools he could now look at the world with dreams of his own design, mimicking the creative spirit he saw in God, and this freed him from the enslaving shackles of evil design. He now yearned to find new ways, better ways that would give security, value, and reason to his life, and these creative ideas lit his mind. There are many men of light in the world today making dreams reality, and the reason we are now doubling our store of knowledge every four years.

Promises. Promises…

In wonder, and sometimes horror, men willed to harness earth, fire, and water, and in a blink have broken the nucleus of an atom for both good and evil. From spectacular dreams they harnessed power to move mountains, build roads, drill for oil, and advances in medicine and science are growing exponentially, recently cracking the genome code. Banding together for a common cause, men of light are now poised to break the back of disease and negative biological adversities that have plagued us from our very beginnings, and one of the most controversial is genetic modification. Indeed, there is a real danger in these endeavors and on all fronts, as even in the quest for an understanding of this new technology, as some governments and institutions are doing with monsters at the helm, are seeing this knowledge just for the black bottom line, and power, without any consideration of morality. They promise us, over and over again, that they will forge a new age of reason, where mankind will triumph over all sickness, creating life, even conquering our ultimate death. But no matter what promises monsters make, when the time tested duality of spirituality and intellect are progressively being ignored, most often, only his destructive nature will manifest. It is the law of attraction, the universal law of cause and effect, and it can be our salvation, or promote damnation as our ultimate manifest destiny. That is the gift of free will, where responsibility was borne.

The Value of life

Mankind scratches for knowledge; it is hard won. Men of light will formulate a new design, create amazing scientific advances for a specific purpose, like the use of lasers in fighting cancer without surgery, for instance, only to find out the technology can be used in a Star War program. The byproduct of an industry is put in drinking water by a powerful lobby who convinces government to mandate it at a lavish dinner party… and can you imagine what is being wrought by genetics all around the world, controlled by monsters? A new technique of death, for instance, takes many individual inventions, for a completely new application… One, the perfection of visually seeing a child in the womb, along with a new curved syringe that can reach inside of the Fallopian tube, a new sedation for the mother, and a new, quick acting and so called “humane” poison can be administered directly into the heart of a child accurately, in the third trimester. It has been approved for use in New York this month. Is this the creation of men of light?

Are we working together for progress and a common cause, plowing forward for the good of mankind, learning and growing and trying to understand the fundamental elements that give our lives value? Or is morality and our consciousness becoming redundant and obsolete, with soulless decisions being made by morally deficient computer generations composing new avenues of profit without the human fingerprint of ethics? How is giving 3000 abortions a day generating a value for the precious gift we call life? Still, we hope that progress will continue for the overall good of humanity, built by men of vision and their dreams of light… and yet we are horrified when we see otherwise, because it is out of a man of lights comprehension that a person could not hold themselves responsible for what they do, and would not show the least bit of remorse or guilt, as responsible men should feel. I can assure you, they feel justified, as they consider themselves super men, self-chosen to rule all others, and above the moral laws of both God and men.

Real monsters under the bed …

When the light of goodness, righteousness, and Love shines on this evil incarnate, they shrink away into the shadows like the roaches they are. Only in shadow can they exist.

Last year Russia and China sold American debt just before Russia’s involvement with Ukraine. Amazingly, a mysterious financial entity of mega proportion, located in a country without a viable government, Belgium, bought them back. This is the workings of monsters, and it was well hidden from you… Read, “The Prince” by Machiavelli. Read it… You are in it. Your true solace lies in the fact that there is a universal law, the law of cause and effect, as what you sow, so too will you reap, and as a great man once said, as he was being betrayed by his friends… “He who lives by the sword will die by it.” And as a responsible person of free will, you have an innate freedom to choose, where love or hate can have a place in you life.

Note* Please look at the movie “Mindwalk”. It describes the mindset of men of light.

We have a choice on how we die as a nation.

The fate of unbelievers.

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

The sheep of this country are attempting to get along by going along. However, despite our national capitulation to the New World Order, we are not adapting well as a people. Americans have miserably failed to adjust to our changing status and are paying a steep emotional price for our slide into tyranny while on our way to becoming a third world country.

From a Land of Hope to a People of Quiet Desperation

If this won't wake up the nation, then nothing will.

If this won’t wake up the nation, then nothing will.

A good day for most Americans is a day where we avoid a catastrophe instead of celebrating our accomplishments. Americans are increasingly a miserable people. We are most certainly the most stressed out people on the planet. Perhaps the biggest slap in the face comes from the fact that the media controllers of today’s society are teaching us to love our servitude instead of inspiring us to reach for the stars. However, this acceptance is not sitting well with America and it is showing up in our collective health.  Did you know that despite paying the most for healthcare, our lifespan is only 51st in the world? Even some third world countries live longer than we do, according to the CIA fact book of 2013.

The biggest reason for the decline in our national health, relative to other countries, is the high amount of stress that we are experiencing as a people. Much of the stress we are experiencing comes from trying to find a level of homeostasis in the midst of experiencing personal, emotional and spiritual subjugation. The rubber band can only be stretched so far till it breaks.

Man Was Born to Be Free

There is an emotional and mental health price to pay when a person forsakes individual control over their life, for it is in our DNA to be free. When people are not free, they suffer emotionally, psychologically, spirituality and physically. In America, we have lost our freedom. As a result, psychosomatic illnesses are at an all-time high. The research of health psychologists has revealed that it is psychological factors which constitutes the number one contributor to nearly all forms of illness from cancer to heart disease. Just the nature of the word, disease, or dis ease, speaks to this undeniable fact.  In a ground breaking study in the 1970’s, Steven Bramwell demonstrated that this principle even applied to college football players as he demonstrated that the members with Stanford football team who experienced the most stress, sustained the most injuries related to their sport. That same year, Japanese cardiologists demonstrated the same relationship with heart disease and stress and hence, the term psychosomatic illness came into vogue in the field of health psychology.

With a failing economy on the verge of collapse, martial law occupation by Jade Helm and World War III being at a doorstep, Americans have nowhere to turn for refuge except to the one true God. And America has foresaken Him as evidenced by Planned Parenthood selling body parts of aborted fetuses.

Conspiracy of Silence

fda posion1In modern medicine we attack what works, natural health care, and we allow the FDA to endorse what kills, Big Pharma (e..g. Vioxx, Celebrex) in which over quarter of a million Americans died.

You don’t hear a lot about the mental/emotional aspects of disease because there is no money in it for Big Pharma and Big Pharma writes the medical school curriculums. Whether, or not, the pill companies want the tried and true principles of health and well-being taught to medical school students as a prelude to intervention, it is irrelevant. The fact remains that America is a sick nation and we are a sick nation because all forms of our personal growth are stunted because we allow our lives to become distracted from the purpose of why we are here. Henry David Thoreau was correct when he said that …

Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them“.

According to a presentation offered at the IFPE Congress in Vienna, Austria on April 18, 2009, on the results of World Health Organization’s World Mental Health Survey, 19% of studied Americans experienced a clinical anxiety disorder in the previous twelve-month period, which pushes the United States into a ranking of first place in this category.  

What do Americans have to be so anxious about? At least part of the answer which explains why Americans have such a high degree of clinical anxiety, is contained in the following paragraphs as it is undeniably stressful living in America under the present set of conditions. We Americans are a miserable people who are dumbed down, drugged out, persecuted, fluoridated, chemtrailed, poisoned by consuming the GMO food supply, breathing radiated air thanks to Fukushima and are propagandized by a corporate controlled media who constantly reminds us about how happy we should be because we live in the land of freedom and opportunity and our imaginary enemies hate us because of our freedoms when the truth is actually the opposite. According to the Economist Intelligence Unit Democracy Index 2011, the United States is tied with Romania for forty-ninth in civil liberties. Several countries such as Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and Norway are tied for first. So much for our freedoms. When most people have a gun pointed at their head, they should know that they could soon die. And when the government passed the NDAA, they are telling you what they plan to do with you if you get out of line, which is to snatch you off the street without due process and “disappear” you forever. Yet, we do not fight back.

Living the American Lie

The truth of the American experience is really quite the opposite of what the mainstream media tells us. We live in a hellish 1984 nightmare where our every move is tracked by the NSA. Every word we speak is under scrutiny. We have no privacy and it has become very clear that the government is no longer of the people, by the people and for the people. The people are no longer the sovereign, the bankers who have hijacked our government are the sovereign and are in near total control of our government. As a result, we are a besieged people. In short, we are an occupied nation which is producing a high degree of misery. Even for the sheep, these undeniable facts are showing up in our collective stress levels.

Most Americans Are a Helpless Group

If a population is exposed to Ebola, 90% will die agonizing deaths. However, 10% will survive and this 10% figure is true for most pandemics. I think the 10% figure is true for resistance to tyranny as well. There are those of us who are seemingly immune to the societal brainwashing and are clearly able to rise up and oppose tyranny. However, I have concluded that most Americans are not able to mount any form of psychological resistance to what is going on, much less any physical resistance. Most Americans suffer from learned helplessness.

Learned Helplessness

learned helplessnessWhen I first began writing, I operated under the myth that if we could reach enough people, that our numbers of resistance would reach a tipping point and we would simply overwhelm the forces of the New World Order. I was not ignorant or naive, there simply isn’t a body of research which addresses this phenomenon. When people were not responsive to seeing through the lies and deception of the NWO, I attributed their blindness to cognitive dissonance in that they were not quite ready to make a mental paradigm shift, but eventually would if armed with enough facts. I no longer believe this is true because most Americans suffer from a psychological condition called learned helplessness. The term “learned helplessness” was coined by psychologist Martin Seligman.  In 1967, Martin Seligman’s seminal research was published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology entitled, Failure to Escape Traumatic Shock. Seligman’s experiment led to the term often used today to describe why poor people do not take obvious steps to climb out of their poverty-stricken circumstances. In Seligman’s dog study, he used dogs that were shocked and at first, demonstrated the ability to escape. In the second phase of the experiment, when a barrier was erected, repeated shocks to the dogs led to them passively accepting the shocks when their efforts made no difference with regard to their circumstances. In the third phase, when the barriers were removed, one would expect the dogs to return to escaping the shocks. Stunningly, even when the animal could see a clear path to escape, they continued to passively accept the shocks, hence the development of the “learned helplessness”. The dogs had been conditioned that their actions made no difference in the outcome, hence the term, learned helplessness. This principle is applicable to humans as well for when people lose hope, they passively accept their fate even when there are clear and identifiable options. I have concluded that most of these people cannot be saved because they are so unresponsive to the dangerous intrusions into their lives and they are programmed to label our warnings as conspiracy theories as they perform their Stepford Wives imitation on the way to their final demise.

Options?

Maybe a collective effort could save this country, but I seriously doubt it. As a whole, I have concluded that America is a defeated nation. I firmly believe that if we gave Americans a choice to fight for their freedom against a combined Chinese and Russian occupation force or to acquiesce, most Americans would say, “It would not be that bad to live under the Chinese and Russians”. Subsequently, I have altered my focus in my writing. I have decided to perform triage in my approach. In battlefield triage, there are always three groups …

(1) Those that cannot be saved no matter what you do

(2) Those that have some chance to be saved

(3) those that have a good chance of being saved with the right kind of attention.

I am now writing for people who are in the second or third category. I would suggest to my colleagues to do the same thing. Our time is short and we cannot waste time trying to educate and warn those who are so blind that they cannot see.

Is There Any Hope?

From the air, the guard towers stick out like a sore thumb. The Twin Peaks Marana mall. The only thing missing is customers.  This is what the bankers have in mind for you.

Most of the time, successful military coups do not end well for the people for an old authoritarian regime is often replaced by a new authoritarian regime. However, with present preparations to turn all public venues into detention centers, the criminalizing of free speech and the renewal of the NDAA, Ray Charles could see what is coming. Perhaps our only way out is to hope the military does execute a coup. What do we have to lose? However, you should be aware this will only trigger a civil war between the foreign troops already here and our depleted domestic military forces. I have come to believe that our only hope for resistance, and the preservation of American traditions and culture is a long-term guerrilla civil war. Most of this country does not have the stomach for this development and I think this is what is giving the military pause and is keeping them from doing what some think needs to be done.

As many as 10% of us understand what is coming and that capitulation and passivity will not save our lives. I would strongly urge most Patriots to focus the lion’s share of their activities to the cause of surviving what is coming. In response to my article on the Pope’s betrayal of his faith, I had a lady named Chloe write to me and tell me that she canceled her subscription to my newsletter. Chloe should expand her circle of cancellations to include her Bible, because the many who she so blindly admires has forsaken all Christians everywhere. Unfortunately, Chloe’s ignorance is so very typical of an American.

Choose Life Over Death

The process starts with ensuring the survival of your soul. And as I have covered extensively, most churches are not worthy of your money and devotion because they serve the holy grail of tax exemption while forsaking the word of God.

On September 25th, the Pope is going to tell you who is really in charge, I would suggest you listen and then act accordingly. This is a very tough time to be an American and an even tougher time to be a parent of an American child. Whatever, happened to the notion that the next generation of Americans will be better off than their parents? Oh yeah, that notion died the day we let the satanic bankers hijack our government. It is time to do triage on America, save what you can while you can.
