The Fallacy of 'Specific Disease Doctrine' and the Funding of the False Complexity Medical Paradigm

Could we be looking at a false-complexity medical paradigm, where those afflicted with chronic disease are being used as pass-through, money laundering flesh bag conduits from the national treasury and Gross National Product to the creators of med school curricula and congressional 'health'care legislation? Just say'in..

"The specific disease doctrine is the grand refuge of weak, uncultured, unstable minds, such as now rule in the medical profession. There are no specific diseases; there are specific disease conditions." Florence Nightingale

Dr. Patrick Byrne of and His Crusade Against Naked Short Selling

Due to the importance of the need to continue to expose the incredible corruption in the financial markets and after having obtained permission from the host of this interview, I believe it is in the public interest that the provided audio be heard far and wide by the investing public (audio embedded below with an MP3 link to listen offline). For the purpose of stating the obvious, I use the term "investing public" to include those who work for and hold paper money as representative of wealth despite their belief that they are "out of the market." No.. far from it. They are invested in the currency market, US dollars, the common stock of the USA, Inc., which is openly and legally sold short and very nakedly so.

This interview caught my attention after having looked into the practice of 'naked short selling' or simply, the counterfeiting of publicly traded shares by large players in the market place. To a great extent, this is just an extension of fractional reserve banking, but by Wall Street. Today, the threat isn't so much that investors and depositors would liquidate individual accounts, a problem in a fractional reserve system of representative paper wealth, but that the value of paper assets, whether they be cash, equities or bonds, are continually diminshed in value by large institutional speculators who sell without ever having to settle. A free lunch. The shocking part of all of this, is that this naked short selling is prevalent even in the US government bond market as exposed by researchers, including Deep Capture, a blog associated with Dr. Byrne.

An example of openly admitted naked short selling is the trading of unallocated precious metals. Recently Jim Puplava of Financial Sense covered the topic of the manipulation of the gold price and also clearly defined the difference between allocated and unallocated precious metals accounts. Allocated accounts are accounts where the metal is numbered and specific bars or coins are assigned to owners and storage fees are charged. Unallocated metals are metals where dealers act as brokers do, purchasing the assets for clients, but often without any specific metal held in segregated accounts and where no delivery of the physicial metal is expected. Unallocated metal is normally a way of trading the swings in price in the short term for cash profits and the more sophisticated speculators buying and selling in this market are aware of the difference. Unless specifically disclosed that a physical pooled account of some sort is maintained, no physical gold is actually taken off of the market and such accounts have no backing whatsoever and delivery of physical metal would require locating the metal on the open market. Either way, the investor of unallocated metal has more exposure to the credit risk of the firm. The problem not addressed by Mr. Puplava, in my opinion, is theoretically, how many tonnes of unallocated gold can be purchased or sold worldwide, for example, until the transactions might exceed any available gold in existence, mined or to be mined, on the planet? Where do you draw the line and is the price of gold (and silver) today reflective of physical reality? Unlike electronic blips or paper certifcates representative of equity stakes, physical assets might eventually be required to somehow manifest in 3-D reality when the 'game over' sign flashes.

The most important term to understand, as financial deleveraging accelerates, or basically as we arrive at the end game in a fractional reserve world, is "counterparty risk (or default risk)." In the broadest sense, this includes "counterparty risk" in the holding of cash which derives its value completely at the whim of the ruling class and ultimately in the confidence that the public might have in these buffoons. The example of the precious metals market above is just for illustration purposes as free and clear ownership of tangible assets will be crucial as we approach and arrive at a tremendous financial event horizon, guaranteed by the the laws of the universe.

As Alan Greenspan once stated, "...the amount of credit that an economy can support is determined by the economy's tangible assets, since every credit instrument is ultimately a claim on some tangible asset."

Domesticating the Enemies of the State

In the winter olympic sport of curling, curlers induce the path of the granite stone as it slides across the ice by the act of sweeping the brooms. This is the distinct metaphor I get when I reflect about how culture is likely not a pure product of random evolution (or devolution).

In his debrief, Russian defector and former KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov stated that only 15% of his former employer's budget was directed to espionage or what Hollywood portrays as the majority of national intelligence agencies' chief functions. The other 85% was dedicated toward manipulating reality or social engineering for the sake of making it easier for the ruling class to achieve desired ends. Taking a close look at the modern historical record beyond the tax-exempt foundation edited school text books, the discerning eye eventually discovers that this is pretty much the case for the west as well. This is not just about the surface-level political reality or the obvious Hollywood themes like government officials lying or false flag operations to get the nation-state into war or about assassination. We're talking about getting down into the weeds here. Examples include social engineering down into the details of how the family is structured or how children are reared. Notwithstanding Plato and his recommendations for the ruling elite class to shape society and culture, more recently, Bertrand Russell expressed himself quite cleary on the matter:

"The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated.”

In other-words the public will not be allowed to know how it’s beliefs and opinions were scientifically manipulated.

"Ordinary men and women will be expected to be docile, industrious, punctual, thoughtless, and contented.'" The Scientific Outlook by author Bertrand Arthur-William Russell, a renowned British philosopher, a supporter of eugenics and World Government. [Link]

Well, how about that? But how exactly to go about it even beyond the classroom? Let's take a look at what Mr. Bezmenov had to say. Then, let's have a look at one historical event in US history which changed society. That event in 1969, basically ended the counter-culture movement.

Charlie Manson: A Funded Change Agent?
Select quotes from the transcript of the 13 October 1971, broadcast on KLRB radio, Carmel, California by researcher Mae Brussell. The MP3 audio file is available for download below:

"He was used. He was a person who had been in jail twenty-two of his thirty-two years of life. He was the product of our penal system. He was not a hippie or a part of the youth culture. They bought him a guitar, let his hair grow, put a leather jacket on him, gave him money, gave him a bus and credit cards, and told him to do his thing."

"A prominent attorney by the name of George Shibley who works with groups in the Middle East—in Beverly Hills he has powerful connections—met with Charles Manson just before he got out of jail in Treasure Island. No one would know how Charles Manson would get such a famous Beverly Hills attorney to visit him before he was paroled. No one will ever know the conversation that transpired between those men. But what we do know is that when Charles Manson got out of Treasure Island in 1967, at the height of the Haight Ashbury scene, he got a large bus. And he did not buy it. He did not have a job, and he had credit cards for gasoline. In the trial some subject was made up that one of the girls stole a credit card from her family to buy Charlie gasoline. I am sure the parents would have had him arrested before long; you can't go for two years on a stolen credit card. Charlie was never arrested. And one of the questions in one of the articles I have is, it simply said: He had a credit card. In order to do a study of a covert operation, or a murder, or a simple murder: Who paid for the gasoline for Charlie Manson?"

"In the summer of 1969 there was a murder in Hollywood, California in which Sharon Tate, Jay Sebring, Mr. Frokowski, Abigail Folger, Steve Parent, and Mr. and Mrs. La Bianca were stabbed forty-four times. The newspaper did not know who did the murders, but it read in my mind like a military ambush. It could be no other way. It was described by people later as a military ambush. And for the reasons as this: These many people were slaughtered; nobody heard a sound; there were dogs on the grounds that didn't say boo; there was a caretaker in a guest cottage who didn't hear one gun go off, and guns went off; they didn't hear any screaming; nobody saw a getaway car; the place was completely destroyed; there was time to put hoods over the people, ropes on their neck, leave signs and symbols that would come down on a particular group of our society—two groups—and split. And no, not a dog was killed or barked. The fellow that lives on the grounds said he slept through it. And they shimmied up the telephone poles, cut the wires, left all this obvious evidence, and split. And the way the wires and the lines were cut I felt that it had to be a military type ambush."

"So I was watching how the hippie scene would be put down and what evidence there was that they had to crack it. I've mentioned on two different programs that in my neighborhood a man moved in from Texas. I think he gets tired of me talking about this, so this is the last time I'll mention him. He was dressed as a hippie, but he wasn't a hippie. He brought his children into this community. He lived a block from my house. He wrote a book for Henry Kaiser called Children of Change. (I'm repeating for somebody who hasn't heard the show.) A non-hippie from Texas, he lived here for about one or two years, walking down the coast, going the music scene. And he wrote, just prior to the Sharon Tate murders, that, "...the hippies would have made it..." —this is what Henry Kaiser published— "...would have made it if, number one: they had a sense of humor. And number two: they weren't so violent.....He is now at the Navy post-graduate school; He's Navy. He had to be Navy Intelligence. How did he get into the Navy post-graduate school if his undergraduate school was being a hippie on Big Sur road, walking back and forth on the highway?

"It's very interesting in my research on the assassinations that the very first man to publish an article on the Sharon Tate murder in my collection of the murders, before they had a suspect—the murders were in August, and they found the suspects in December—was a man named Ed Butler. In October '69 he wrote an article. The man who publishes the newspaper that he writes for is Patrick Frawley of Schick Razor and Technicolor, who is one of the third largest supporters of Richard Nixon—a far right-wing person. And he hires Ed Butler to write articles for him. Ed is an agent provaceteur who worked with Lee Harvey Oswald in New Orleans. When Oswald had the cover story that he was a communist, Ed Butler made a record for him. [This was] when Oswald said he was a member of the Fair Play for Cuba [Committee]. And he was the only member of the New Orleans area, and Ed Butler knew it. Ed Butler worked with Lee Harvey Oswald, so it's interesting that in 1969 the first person who has an opinion on who murdered these seven people would be Ed Butler; In my collection of articles we have Ed Butler. Now, what is this article called? It says Did Hate Kill Tate? And he goes into the fact that the Black Panthers are tied into the communists, and the evidence is that the Panthers killed these people; [they came] into middle class America and spread terror. This is what we call provaceteurs, agent provaceteurs, clandestine governments: where somebody is the first one in, and he's tied with all these other people and links."

"Lawrence Schiller is the man who gave Sue Atkins $150,000 to turn the state's evidence to say that Manson masterminded the murders. She made $150,000. It was described as an unusual legal trick. Joseph Ball, who worked with the Warren Commission, was with parties involved in the Sharon Tate massacre. George Shibley, who worked with Sirhan—and McKissick was in his office—they worked with the Sirhan case. They were in on the Sharon Tate case. The lawyers overlap."

"Lawrence Schiller says:
' was Charles Manson, a year out of prison, mingling with Hollywood stars in 1968... The Manson Family was, somehow, making it with the Establishment...And Manson was going to some of Hollywood's plushest parties. Lawrence Schiller is telling you that a year later Charlie is right in there with the biggest people of all. That's pretty interesting considering the lawyer that he saw before he got out of Treasure Island, and the lawyer that Tex Watson is seeing before these crimes are committed. These boys were wined and dined in the music scene, in the art scene, by certain people before the massacres took place."

"Qu'ils mangent de la brioche!"

Imagine being on an extended unemployment stint and just after having spent another day writing fifty-plus resumes, wondering if you'll be in your house in six-months and then switching on the news and seeing this shit, REUTERS: "JP Morgan Investment Bankers See Record Payday."

Getting By With a Little Help From My Friends
It's one thing to hit the jackpot fair and square, but these investment bankers still have a source of obscene amounts of wealth due to the trillions of dollars handed over to them by the U.S. Congress, the political class complicit with the mega-banks in the destruction of the real US economy over the past decades. Think about it, huge lumps of cash in compensation for creating nothing of tangible value. Now perhaps the smug bankers, especially at the lower levels (the one's who only receive the paltry six-figure hush-money bonuses), haven't figured out that the financial economy cannot exist indefinitely without a real economy (mining, manufacturing and agriculture). Not unlike the US Dollar, their very existence is built/leveraged upon a fraction of perceived worth and as we have witnessed, the inflating and taxing power of the Federal Reserve (the real power) on declining main street revenues. Could Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan be the major shareholders of the Federal Reserve on this side of the Atlantic? Sure seems like it.

You also have to wonder how the asshole politicans gave the Big-Three automaker executives such a hard time for arriving in Washington D.C. in private jets in November 2008 to beg for less than one-thirtieth of what the Wall Street masters of the universe investment bankers received.

Automakers actually build tangible products which add value to the United States economy and yet they were practically told to get on their knees while at the same time the Wall Street bankers were figuratively (or not) offered a free blow-job by the Potomac dirt-bags while they handed over the nation's loot.

Who's running who? These bankers actually devised the financial vehicles which are responsible for the smackdown and are still receiving cash rewards for being so clever as to make money for producing nothing but the noise of computer keystrokes and paper shuffling. If anything, these boys are economic and market vampires using methods of profiting which includes skimming money from the markets using computer programs or "flash trading"

"Bloomberg reports in the SEC filings that Goldman only lost money on 2 days out the entire quarter. So they are now hitting something like .900 for 3 months in baseball terms. Folks, there are 13 weeks a quarter, with generally 5 weekdays. That is 65 days. They made money 63 days. That's a 97% win percentage."

Now..after having traded this market for the past 15 years and being able to call consistent gains a viable second monthly income, 97% winning trades is pretty fucking amazing.

"Doing God's Work" 0r Screwing Their Own Clients?
"A Congressional committee questioned Goldman's CEO, Lloyd Blankenfeld about packaging risky assets and then selling them to clients, even though Goldman was betting against those same assets. Thus, Goldman was making money even as their clients were getting killed. I quote Blankfein. 'I do think the behavior is improper. We regret the consequences that people have lost money in it.' (Source: Dow Theory Letters dated 14 January 2010).

The Reaping
Would it surprise you to hear that a bunch of these investment banker types are gunned downed someday by perhaps a once proud family man who thinks he's got nothing to lose after losing it all? A desperate and tragic criminal act perhaps a year or so after losing his job and having written his last check. Maybe he's been put through a divorce from the woman who not only promised "until death do us part," but had made sure that he signed that option-arm mortgage contract with her for that pretty $750,000 McMansion with a four car garage and walk-in closets bigger than the size of their former home's master bedroom. And you know what? When the public someday hears the news of this human tragedy, I'll bet more than a few will be discreetly sporting a small grin of glee on their faces.

It is said that there was a time when a famous monarch stated, "Let them eat cake!" The difference between those days and today, is that the guillotine has been replaced with 500 million firearms, more or less evenly distributed throughout the country. Come to think of it, maybe the boys at Goldman already know not to bring a knife to a gunfight:
Arming Goldman Sachs With Pistols

Of course I would never advocate any violence whatsoever.....but I would understand.

JPMorgan investment bankers to see record payday

REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton ...
By Steve Eder

NEW YORK (Reuters) - JPMorgan Chase & Co (NYSE:JPM - News) on Friday announced a record $9.3 billion payday for its investment-banking employees, setting the stage for competitors like Goldman Sachs Group Inc (NYSE:GS - News) to also make eye-popping payouts.

On a per employee basis, JPMorgan investment bankers, sales staff and traders, on average, are set to make about $379,000 for 2009, up more than $100,000 from 2008, when the broader financial sector was mired in crisis.

"People looking at it from the outside look at the dollars and say they are high," said Kenneth Raskin, the head of law firm White & Case's executive compensation practice. "There is no question the dollars are high. The question is whether they were deserving."

Median U.S. household income in 2008 was $50,303.

Michael Cavanagh, JPMorgan's chief financial officer, told reporters that even though pay is up overall, its investment bank still reduced the percentage of revenue that it set aside for pay, to 33 percent, from 62 percent for 2008 and historical averages of about 44 percent. Its investment bank had one of its strongest years.

Analysts also expect Goldman Sachs Group Inc (NYSE:GS - News) and Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS - News), which report their results next week, to show an upswing in pay. Citigroup Inc (NYSE:C - News), however, could pay commercial and investment banking bonuses for 2009 that are similar to 2008 levels, sources told Reuters.

Banks across the industry have changed their compensation plans to give managers more of their pay in the form of stock that must be held for multiple years. This sort of deferred compensation is meant to curb traders and others from taking short-term risks that could harm the investment bank several years later.

Changes in compensation plans, however, have done little to bring down overall pay figures and quell public outrage over pay.

The Wall Street Journal on Friday reported that the top 38 U.S. banks and securities firms are on pace to pay their people $145 billion, based the newspaper's analysis.

The public anger over banker pay led the New York Times to call on Congress to pass a one-off windfall tax on banker bonuses. Britain plans a one-time tax of half of banker bonuses above 25,000 pounds ($40,675).

Banks, which now face President Obama's bailout tax, have so far been successful in beating back other reforms, including plans for a consumer protection regulator.

The resistance of the banking industry to roll back pay is infuriating and short-sighted to some, especially with high unemployment and people losing homes to foreclosure.

"These people need some perspective on where we are and what they have done," said Cornelius Hurley, director of the Morin Center for Banking and Financial Law at Boston University.

Don't Just Blame the "Hired Help"

This is a three part video excerpt which summarizes the history behind the rise of the Khazars (ancestral source of the majority of European Jewry) or more exactly, those who would be the elite segment of this population and their involvement in international banking and politics. The information presented is a good start for those who believe that the buck stops with some Jewish dude, Mayer Amschel Bauer, who somehow crawled out of a medieval Jewish ghetto and started lending money that he made from coin collecting, to the ruling families of Europe. The rise of elite Jewish banking power is a VERY recent event indeed, when compared to the history of the ancient power brokers of western civilization.

For those would characterize this material as Zionist disinformation, please note that it is not intended to redirect all of your hatred. It is presented as a tool for redirecting only some of your hatred or however much of it you wish to allocate elsewhere, if you have extra to spare.

For those who merely desire to point out the suspects in order to disclose political manipulation, a good investigator might, in this case, recognize a red herring and desire to go to a level above the historically and relatively new accounting department or "the help." That bright and colorful piƱata presented for the world to beat up on called Zionism or Judaism has served a purpose.

Research in the realm of parapolitics is not an easy exercise in being spoon fed as it is easy to be led down the path of least resistance by information gleaned from the mainstream and even many "supressed" or readily unavailable texts. The process also requires many mid-course corrections, so to speak.

Historically, pogroms against Jews were pogroms against the common classes of Jewry and not the Jewish "fund" managers who held positions below the levels of old-line political and spiritual movers and shakers. For example, the evidence is replete which indicates that certain elite Jewish organizations of the mid 20th century made deals with National Socialist Germany which were far from being in the best interests of the common European Jewish population of the time.

Personally, if forced to point fingers, I blame the child-like herd mentality of humanity for allowing itself to be in the predicament that it finds itself in today (if you are pointing fingers at elected or appointed officials, you should stop reading here because you just don't get it, only for now, hopefully). Nothing will change unless a sizable portion of humanity can one day rise above its own incapacity to be free (freedom includes the freedom to fail). To begin the process, humanity will have to rid itself of its own worst enemies, the engineered dependence upon messiahs (human authority figures or otherwise) and its persistent state of denial regarding the belief in the benevolence of the various authority figures and the political / legal establishment (a condition which might very well be related to a nasty case of Stockholm Syndrome disease).

Children and Divorce, "It's Not About You"

For the past several decades, industrialized society has been witness to the family consisting of two working parents and let's be honest, children who are in large part raised by commercial enterprises or "daycare centers." It would seem that family priorities have been primarily focussed upon material gain and creature comforts over the nurturing of children. Of course, having mothers enter the workplace has indeed increased the outstanding credit of the system as well as the tax base to the benefit of banking and government, but at what cost to the family? Reduced parental contact with children of working mothers and fathers, or simply 'lost time,' is time never to be recovered...gone forever. Consider how preschool aged children today are voluntarily separated from their parents during an age when they are traditionally (and genetically) meant to be with family. The negative behavioural ramifications of this lack of parental contact during this highly developmental stage may lie dormant until the appearance of puberty. Unless home schooled, after the toddler stage, parents will never have the opportunity to bond with their children as much as they can at this very precious and crucial young age. It makes one wonder why the rush to stick'em all into the five day preschool week. If there be parents who need that much of a break from their children, one wonders why they would have children at all.

As an aside, at least for the purpose of providing a little background, ponder for moment the motivation for the broad and supposedly spontaneous/grass roots campaigns to get women to commit to lifelong careers even as mothers (if you took the time to dig deeper, you would find that virtually all ground shaking societal changes of the 20th century have occurred as a result of social engineering think-tanks, from the hippy movement and rock and roll to feminism). What are we to make of the queen of feminism and the women's rights movement, Gloria Steinem, admitting that her endeavours were funded by the Central Intelligence Agency? The classic novel, Brave New World was quite the predictor of things to come. Just a thought: If the feminist movement had really been about empowering women and not the result of elite think-tank social manipulation programs, Steinem's Ms. Magazine would have probably had advertizements for the best purse guns money can buy and courses in the handling of a firearm (the great equalizer) for women across the country. But back to the topic at hand.

So how exactly does placing children second or third on the parental lists of priorities have to do with the divorce in modern times? If children are not highly regarded as important enough to maximize parental contact with them, divorce in such a household, despite the negative impact upon the children as studies have shown, becomes a much easier decision to come by.

Most of us are sick of hearing politicians push their agendas for the sake of "the children," but regarding the preservation of the family....divorce is a most serious consideration when children are involved. There are certainly reasonable grounds for divorce that might vary from habitual gambling, debilitating alcoholism, physical abuse, infidelity etc.. This isn't about that. Then, there are the others like (eye-roll):

"We don't get along."

"We're just roommates now."

"He/she was mentally abusive and/or emotionally distant." or maybe a couple more which are thought about more than they are said,

"I'm bored."

"I want the feeling of lustful newness again."

Again, it's not about you (or your spouse).

All these need to be carefully weighed, considering the documented statistical consequences.

Below are excerpts of Professor David Popenoe's results of The National Marriage Project at Rutgers University:

Divorce Myth 5: Following divorce, the woman's standard of living plummets by 73 percent while that of the man's improves by 42 percent.

Fact: This dramatic inequity, one of the most widely publicized statistics from the social sciences, was later found to be based on a faulty calculation. A reanalysis of the data determined that the woman's loss was 27 percent while the man's gain was 10 percent. Irrespective of the magnitude of the differences, the gender gap is real and seems not to have narrowed much in recent decades.

Divorce Myth 6: When parents don't get along, children are better off if their parents divorce than if they stay together.

Fact: A recent large-scale, long-term study suggests otherwise. While it found that parents' marital unhappiness and discord have a broad negative impact on virtually every dimension of their children's well-being, so does the fact of going through a divorce. In examining the negative impacts on children more closely, the study discovered that it was only the children in very high-conflict homes who benefited from the conflict removal that divorce may bring. In lower-conflict marriages that end in divorce — and the study found that perhaps as many as two thirds of the divorces were of this type — the situation of the children was made much worse following a divorce. Based on the findings of this study, therefore, except in the minority of high-conflict marriages it is better for the children if their parents stay together and work out their problems than if they divorce.

Divorce Myth 7: Because they are more cautious in entering marital relationships and also have a strong determination to avoid the possibility of divorce, children who grow up in a home broken by divorce tend to have as much success in their own marriages as those from intact homes.

Fact: Marriages of the children of divorce actually have a much higher rate of divorce than the marriages of children from intact families. A major reason for this, according to a recent study, is that children learn about marital commitment or permanence by observing their parents. In the children of divorce, the sense of commitment to a lifelong marriage has been undermined.

According to Professor Popenoe as quoted in DISCOVERY HEALTH, most divorces are initiated by women (statistically two-thirds of the time). Would this perhaps be due to what has been said to be a matriarchal legal system which has tended to favor women over men in cases of divorce?

"Two-thirds of all divorces are initiated by women. One recent study found that many of the reasons for this have to do with the nature of our divorce laws. For example, in most states women have a good chance of receiving custody of their children. Because women more strongly want to keep their children with them, in states where there is a presumption of shared custody with the husband the percentage of women who initiate divorces is much lower."

Perhaps the one good thing that might come of the developing economic trouble will be more parental contact due to reduced financial resources and lack of available employment. This will mean less daycare and less nannies as substitutes. It cannot be stressed anymore than to say that the current economic depression will probably be a protracted one. Couples need to be reminded that a one household family is much more economically efficient than a family split into two homes. Primary care givers of children, traditionally mothers, need to be made aware of this (see study results above about your impending decrease in wealth should you divorce). This downturn is not your garden variety recession. Give it a few years and you'll see what I mean. After considering the emotional devastation wrought upon children with a decision to divorce consider your grounds for divorce very, very carefully in light of the financial consequences. Outside of the most serious grounds for divorce those parents who would go ahead with this decision without being cognizant of how serious this economic depression will become, may well begin to see how certain marital dissatisfactions might turn out to be very petty ones. This is a time to take on a fortress mentality as a family unit. You might place your divorce plans on hold for the time being. Who knows you might thank this economy for keeping the family unit intact as you inadvertantly just might place your wants and desires second to the well-being of your children.

Divorce Myth 9: Being very unhappy at certain points in a marriage is a good sign that the marriage will eventually end in divorce.

Fact: All marriages have their ups and downs. Recent research using a large national sample found that 86 percent of people who were unhappily married in the late 1980s, and stayed with the marriage, indicated when interviewed five years later that they were happier. Indeed, three fifths of the formerly unhappily married couples rated their marriages as either "very happy" or "quite happy."

In the scenario depicted in the video below, although played by actors, is a sad illustration of a failed parent who denied her child a two parent household. And for what? She doesn't even know anymore:

Grounds for Divorce?

After having said all of that, it goes without saying....carefully, carefully and wisely choose your partner only after considerable passage of time together.

Free-Range Humans

Let's take notice of the gigantic and growing array of mala prohibita statutes and regulations blanketing the entire planet, the increasing difficulty of movement from one "farm" to the other, as well as the taking of half or more of human productivity (or taxation) "for our own good," while contemplating the intellectual angle taken in the video short below.

Are governments of the "free world" of and by the people, or of and by apathetic acquiesence? With tax-exempt foundations editing school text books, mass-media admittedly run by government intelligence agencies, the easy availability of disease causing edible food-like substances and pre-ordained once a week spirituality, it's probably safe to say that as it stands now, efforts are in place to keep elements of the latter in force. The current political paradigm will last as long as the justifications for the current order remain believable. Will the usual justifications remain as the economic order undergoes a massive shift? What will replace it?

As discussed in this video, the advent of the industrial age allowed for greater excess production by more productive "free-range" humans. For a good while now, we human "commoners" have not been maintained on feudal lands or plantations. Most of us are free-range, now.

What isn't discussed in this excellent documentary short, however, is how gunpowder created a need for a less directly coercive system of sophisticated mental corrals (prisons of the mind) and an unaware population for what today seems to be a growing neo-feudalistic state.

Dark Deception; the Negative Health Implications of Institutionalized Heliophobia

In the old days, you protected your skin from over exposure to the sun with shade and/or clothing. In the process, your skin would at least get some exposure to the sun's rays. Today, perhaps in epidemic proportions, people are getting much less exposure to healthy, unadulterated UV rays of the sun due to the demonization of sun exposure and the near hysterical use of sunblock. Less exposure = less vitamin D....and what myriad problems arise due to a vitamin D deficiency?

While the Wikipedia entry on vitamin D seems to do justice to a summary description of the health problems caused by vitamin D deficiency and the importance of adequate sun exposure, check out how the health authorities try to balance that with the parroting of the old line regarding the avoidance of sun exposure below. Upon reflection, how pathetic a state of affairs do we have when "private" health researchers and medical practitioners rely so much upon the most contradictory recommendations from government ministries?

Wikipedia: Vitamin D
"The use of sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 8 inhibits more than 95% of vitamin D production in the skin.[15][36] Recent studies showed that, following the successful "Slip-Slop-Slap" health campaign encouraging Australians to cover up when exposed to sunlight to prevent skin cancer, an increased number of Australians and New Zealanders became vitamin D deficient."[18]

...and now for the kicker.

"Ironically, there are indications that vitamin D deficiency may lead to skin cancer." [37]

(Am I the only one laughing here?)

"To avoid vitamin D deficiency dermatologists recommend supplementation along with sunscreen use."
[37] Grant WB (2002). "An estimate of premature cancer mortality in the U.S. due to inadequate doses of solar ultraviolet-B radiation". Cancer 94 (6): 1867–75. doi:10.1002/cncr.10427. PMID 11920550.

Here's the problem with the recommended supplementation of vitamin D, whether it be from cod liver oil or a vitamin bottle:
"The currently recommended daily dosage of 400 IU of vitamin D daily appears to be unreasonably low when we know that a light skinned individual makes 20,000 units [5] of vitamin D within 15 to 20 minutes of whole body exposure to the summer sun (before redness appears). This 20,000 IU of vitamin D is five times the amount of vitamin D considered capable of initiating toxic reactions by the Institute of Medicine, demonstrating that these guidelines are set far too low. Dark skinned individuals need 5 to 10 times longer in the sun to produce an equivalent amount of vitamin D as Caucasians, depending on the extent of their pigmentation." Source

Notwithstanding a discussion regarding the chemicals used in sunblock or the benefits of less toxic sunscreens, perhaps it might make more sense to get necessary exposure to the sun for the day on unprotected skin, and only after that, use sunblock to perhaps avoid ruining the holiday with a bad burn. PhD or M.D credentials shouldn't be required to apply a little everyday common sense (unfortunately, such credentials often come with the prohibition of independent thought processes outside of the sanctioned "knowledge"). Either way, you can choose to do some research down the less beaten path or continue to rely upon the spoon feeding for health recommendations from the government ministries with the greatest conflicts of interest, the FDA and CDC.

'Sunshine vitamin' may ward off breast cancer
Higher levels of vitamin D offer range of health benefits, studies suggest news services
updated 6:48 p.m. ET, Thurs., May. 11, 2006

"Women who get lots of vitamin D are less likely to develop breast cancer, suggests a pair of studies that add to the already strong evidence that the “sunshine vitamin” helps prevent many types of cancer."

"High levels of vitamin D translated to a 50 percent lower risk of breast cancer, one study found. Even modestly higher levels resulted in 10 percent less risk, which would translate to 20,000 fewer cases a year if it were true of all American women."

"A second study, by Canadian researchers, found that women who spent time outdoors or got a lot of vitamin D from their diets or supplements — especially as teens — were 25 percent to 45 percent less likely to develop breast cancer than women with less of the nutrient."

Heliotherary (sun-therapy) for tuberculosis patients:

By Dr. James Howenstine, MD

"Research from UCLA [8] and the Harvard School of Public Health revealed that vitamin D plays a key role in the production of a molecule called cathelicidin, which kills the mycobacterium tuberculosis organism."

"Researchers have known for a long time that vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium to build strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D also helps to strengthen the immune system and seems to protect against some types of cancers and as well as other diseases. Scientists and researchers worldwide are working to understand and capitalize on the process to prevent and/or treat as many as 17 types of cancer. Evidence of vitamin D's protective effect against cancer is compelling. Regular sun exposure is associated with lower mortality rates from certain kinds of cancers. Some studies indicate that vitamin D may help prevent cancer of the breast, colon, ovaries and prostate. A recent report indicated those individuals with higher levels of vitamin D in the blood had as much as a 50% lower cancer risk of many types for cancer. "

The Abuse of Your Fictitious Wealth

There are peculiar goings on in the world of finance which are continuing to manifest themselves in painful ways directly for those who have stored much of their life-energy in paper investments. I have to ask whether the free reign given to investment banks to create the exotic Frankensteinian financial instruments which triggered the current cascade may have been intentional. Any idiot could have predicted that eventually this idea of highly leveraged derivatives would lead to a disastrous train wreck. This panic would not be the first orchestrated money panic in United States history. Something tells me that we are perhaps witnessing a harvest of sorts...a harvest of the working class' wealth. Most peculiar and less bizarre is how the UNITED STATES Inc., (see USC 28 § 3002 (15)(A)) , federal police agencies and Wall Street and their financial advisor foot soldiers are continuing to do their best to funnel your financial activity into asset classes which can be tapped by insiders when and if it is needed. This includes manipulating the stock market and supressing the gold price by way of the Exchange Stabilization Fund (USC 31) and other means, regulating and requiring sponsorship to operate as a financial advisor, as well as clamping down on certain money alternatives to paper, which might gain too much popularity (more on that below).

The paper representation of productivity used to stand for direct, unleveraged claims on assets in the tangible world. That all began to change beginning with the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and the subsequent consolidation of financial power with the orchestration of the Great Depression in the 1930s. Used to be that paper notes or money of the day were actually warehouse receipts representing claims upon physical assets, usually gold and silver coin, kept in custodial form at your local bank. This idea was slowly done away on a gradual, inter-generational timeframe as a result of the Great Depression. A convenient fix. The result of this as well as the Nixon Shock of 1971, created lasting shockwave which is being felt right now in the markets. More recently, we are discovering a similar type of fraud perpetuated to the extent that we could call it the theatre of the absurd. How absurd? So absurd that now even the idea that a security, a derivative of wealth representing a claim or interest in a corporate entity, is being done away with through deliberately unenforced criminal activity on the US exchanges. (more on that too, below).

Have a look at these and compare them to the paper in your purse or wallet. Read the print below the dead white guy (click on the image for a slightly larger view):

Notwithstanding the public firestorm that surrounded the $700 billion bailout bill, we can elaborate further on how the Nanny State is not looking out for your best interest.

First we take a look at how physical violence (or threat thereof) by the state operates to contain a political paradigm. Below is a two minute news report video which summarizes what happend in the fall of 2007 to the offices of the LIBERTY DOLLAR. While the alternative currency supplied by the LIBERTY DOLLAR is backed by gold and silver if not actual gold and silver coin minted by this organization, a requirement per the alleged Constitution, keep in mind that the Federal Reserve Note is also a private currency backed by nothing but faith and the horsepower of the federal government corporation. Being that the power of Washington is funded by at-will issuance of paper money or the much more prevalent electronic equivalent, it is obvious that the idea of people storing their energy in something other than the official unbacked paper currency might be seen as a threat. The erroneously monikered US Dollar, is the stock of the USA, Inc., and the board members do not want to see their stock tank, for the moment. The current monetary system is the desired conduit used to tap precious human energy that people willingly provide the leviathan to make endless war (wars and gold backed money cannot co-exist but for very short periods), beat up on free enterprise and threaten violence under an intrusive and oppressive system of taxation. Therefore, it may come as no surprise that this organization was a direct threat to the largest Ponzi scheme ever devised in recorded history. It is also interesting to note that the founder of the LIBERTY DOLLAR and monetary expert Bernard von NotHaus, has not been arrested yet. Imagine this individual, an expert in monetary history, cross examining the government and asking them how the Federal Reserve Note is not a counterfeit piece of paper and how gold and silver as currency, is. Von NotHaus also has in his possession, from the beginning, written replies by law makers and government attorneys, informing him that indeed, the currency he was planning to provide was not in violation of any law. What has changed since then? His organization got way too popular.

Andrew Williams, a spokesman for the Federal Reserve in Washington, D.C.:
"There is no law that says goods and services must be paid for with Federal Reserve notes. Parties entering into a transaction can establish any medium of exchange that is agreed upon."

Now we turn to the real fraud, the stealing of your hard earned wealth on the public exchanges. As this illegal activity is going on out in the open (including the SEC grandfathering previously counterfeited securities circulating on the exchanges!!), where's the FBI and Secret Service when you need'em? Oh, I almost forgot, they're busy raiding issuers of honest money. Please read on.

Is there any wonder how a provider of a stable alternative currency is raided by federal law enforcement and their assets seized when trillions are being illegally pilfered on Wall Street while enforcers of the Department of Justice and the more pathetic Securities and Exchange Commission look the other way? Besides the vaporization of assets with the collapse of exotic financial instruments and detonation of powerhouse banks, some of which had been in existence for over one hundred years, there is the very problematic issue of "naked short selling." This is larger than most people think. This is huge and it also extends to the commodities exchanges (one being the US based COMEX). Basically, investment banking houses and brokerage firms have been creating electronic shares and selling them on the exchanges. They have been selling assets with no title to them as they dilute existing share values. Stories of more shareholder votes cast than issued shares at annual shareholder meetings can only mean that many of the securities on your financial statement might very well be other than issued by the corporation in which you think you own. These perps have taken it upon themselves to act like mini-Federal Reserve Banks by creating assets without regard to the prohibition of this activity by Regulation SHO and other statutes. This regulation requires short sellers to locate the stock that they sold by a certain deadline, which must be accounted for to prevent this very activity. Legitimate short selling, per se, has never been the problem. For those unfamiliar with market trading, forget the term "short selling" and note that what is being addressed here is the counterfeiting of securities, selling them, and taking in a free lunch, courtesy of shareholders.

Regarding the COMEX, some experts estimate that today, 90% of all gold and silver contracts outstanding at anyone time, have no gold and silver backing them should investors demand physical delivery. Recently during the volatile movement of gold and silver prices, it is estimated that one or two of the US mega-investment banks sold enough non-existent paper silver and gold out to an equivalent of one year's future production. So contrived are the current spot prices of the white and yellow metals, that physical bullion has been getting very difficult to come by with physical silver deliveries estimated at six to eight weeks for delivery and gold premiums for bullion coins $80 or so above the 'official' spot price of gold. Even with the higher premiums, inventory has still been depleted almost down to nothing. I know of no bullion dealers from about a dozen, who have any supply on hand as of the day of this writing.

Below is a very impacting interview which explains in good detail the overt criminal activity on Wall Street and the COMEX and how regulators are non-responsive to complaints. The loss of confidence could have an impact lasting decades. Most people alive today don't realize that it took until the mid-1950s until the DOW achieved break even from the market top in 1929 and that's excluding the factor of survivorship bias. If you wish to listen to the unbelievable descriptions of the rampant fraud, play the interview below, or download and save the file (link provided) to listen later on:

So there you have it. Not only is the Federal Reserve and its largest and complicit debtor the United States Treasury throwing money around and diluting the value of the dollar, we now have registered firms diluting another form of holding wealth, equities for a double screw-job.

From a news report on the LIBERTY DOLLAR raid:
"We have no money. We have no products. We have no records to even know what was ordered or what you are owed," von NotHaus wrote in the e-mail, which was sent to Liberty Dollar customers. "We have nothing but the will to push forward and overcome this massive assault on our liberty and our right to have real money as defined by the US Constitution. We should not to be defrauded by the fake government money." Source: LIBERTY DOLLAR Offices Raided

Now, do you suppose that the federal agents who participated in the LIBERTY DOLLAR raid are seeing their retirement account values diminish during this current market chaos? Will their pensions still be available if the government is hit with insolvency? Maybe they should ask pre-USSR collapse KGB officers how it went? If so, they can pat themselves on the back for participating in taking down an organization which offered the American people the opportunity to engage in private agreements using gold and silver money per Article I Section X of the US Constitution. A take down of an organization by order of a government which, by its actions, would regard its subjects as batteries to be tapped or cows to be milked. Now, to which constitution did those participating federal law enforcement agents swear an oath to protect?? Good job guys! Great work in aiding and abetting the financial take down of yourselves, your friends and family, the entire country! Some day and not soon enough when their usefulness has run its course, the help's going to find out that the dude's at the top don't give a shit about them either.

Big changes are on the horizon. Are you ready for the shift?
