I woke up this morning thinking about why on earth we have such great difficulties in furthering the cause of Liberty in all the myriads of blogs and so-called “discussions” which have come to be such useless waste of time.
Well, wonder no more, because the following eight events might give you an idea of where governments go to get a little extra cash.
1. In March, 2009, Ireland seized €4bn from its Pension Reserve fund in order to rescue its banks. In November 2010, the remaining savings of €2.5bn was seized to support the bailout of the rest of the country.
2. In December, 2010, Hungary told its citizens that they could either remit their private pension money to the state or lose their state pension funds (but still have to pay for it nonetheless).
3. In November, 2010, the French parliament decided to earmark €33bn from the national reserve pension fund FRR to reduce the short-term pension scheme deficit.
Yes, of course, there’s more! Please visit the link, and throw out your thoughts!
4. In early January 2011, $60 million in private retirement funds were transferred to the state’s pension scheme in Bulgaria. They wanted to transfer $300 million, but were denied on their first attempt
The Powers that Be call this a government Shut-Down. Many government workers have been “furloughed” but continue to hang around to harass the Subjects. They obviously believe that they’ll be paid a bit later, but who knows? They say only 17% of government is put on the shelf, which means 83% is still hard at their work of making the people miserable and scared.
So about October 17th America will run out of money. It’s clear that the Rulers will panic because they’ve run out of time seeking to “compromise” all Principle, which we can bet will be “solved” by increasing the debt limit. Moves have already been made toward hyper-inflating the debt away, meaning that meanwhile any savings and reserves belonging to the “citizens” will wash down the mountain in the flood of frenzy. Congress has no clue about how to fix this in only a week, when the entire solution is available right there at their fingertips.
So I first refer you to a quick look at http://www.usa.gov/directory/federal/index.shtml – entitled “A-Z Index of U.S. Government Departments and Agencies”. A quick look at that first page should suffice. My point is that there are page after page listing Bureaus, Services, Agencies and such. EVERY one of all those (guessing there are over 1,000) draws it’s money from the public trough.
The solution is so obvious, and so simple…

Our country was founded upon freedom from oppression. Are we still free from oppression? How oppressive are taxes? How oppressive are laws defining behavior? How oppressive are dictates by Presidents and agencies that are not representative of the people’s wishes? Is America actually a free country.
We cannot “avoid” the fiscal cliff, and there are not enough bulldozers in America, or indeed on this entire planet, to tear it down.
We the people did not do this. Our governments and politicians did this, and merely passes the bill on to the people as a “claim” that WE are supposed to pay! Did any reader here ever sign for there “fair share” or any part of this? Nope.
“And we can see the positive impacts right here at Solyndra. Less than a year ago, we were standing on what was an empty lot.But through the Recovery Act, this company received a loan to expand its operations. This new factory is the result of those loans.”

There is much nonsense on vote2012 floating around these days — bloggers saying that “oh my, if you vote 3rd party instead of the Republican nominee, that’s a vote for Obama”. What total BS, that is a vote AGAINST Obama and RINO’s. At worst it’s a vote for or “NONE of the above” and at […]
