We Avoided Default... yay ...

What price is victory? Our country perhaps? Well that's how it finally played out when all was said & done. We are about to get a "Super Congress" committee of 12 people (six from each house of Congress, 3 democrats & 3 republicans ... notice that independents are shut-out) that have A LOT of power to railroad legislation through without the required floor debates and roll-call votes. It may seem to be "streamlining" the process, but rather it is borderline unconstitutional because is gives making law to a body that supersedes the constitutional process. The right to make laws cannot be given from Congress to others.

Anyway, that's only a footnote to the bigger financial problem that we face. The craptacular debt bill that has finally been ratified and signed into law basically kicks the can down the road without any significant spending cuts or means of revenue. Watch below as one former policy maker discusses how our distaste for considering our sacred cows will lead us into Greece within three years unless we reverse course.

Where did our money go????

This movie was posted on the Federal Jack website & I think it does a great job of explaining the Federal Reserve Bank, the Internal Revenue System, and other impositions of the government that have caused economic chaos and hardship over the course of our country's history.

It's interesting, humorous, and explains the forces behind the economic crisis in our country in a way that everyone can understand.

Banned from TruTV - Police State: FEMA Camp episode of "Conspiracy Theory"

Although I'm not totally convinced that these so-called "FEMA Camps" are nefarious (see one of my earlier blogs where I chastise Glenn Beck for completely blowing them off as unsubstantiated conspiracy theory), there is no doubt that they exist, that they are currently being used, and there is always the unfortunate possibility for them to be misused. This is the full-version of the TruTV show "Conspiracy Theory" with Jesse Ventura. This episode was BANNED by TruTV after pressure from some entities in the government. Obviously, former-Governor Ventura got a little too close for somebody's comfort.

Anyway, here is the episode that someone posted on You Tube. You can also find the episode broken up into parts all over the web.
