Gonna take the road less traveled (slightly) tonight. Going out on the proverbial limb with some of the stuff in the post, but if it was not important or relevant, I would not go there.
As for the one year anniversary, I celebrated by turning off CNBS before 9:00 this am. I think I should do that more often. I really like Tom Keene on Bloomberg radio the best in the am. As for my commentary on the anniversary, I'll refrain and let David Rosenberg have the floor - On The One Year Anniversary Of 666 Rosie is not so rosy on the subject.
Since most of you have or will be receiving your Census in the mail soon, it is time to listen to this message from Ron Paul. "If the federal government really wants to increase compliance with the census, it should abide by the Constitution and limit its inquiry to one simple question: How many people live here?" Give it a read please.
While Ron Paul has the floor here is his message for "Stop the Health care Takeover!" Petition to the U.S. Congress This is a tremendously important time to fight back and since Rasmussen is reporting that 57% Predict Health Care Plan Will Hurt The Economy you may want to take some action - NOW! It is mind boggling that the public is quite one sided on a subject and our "representatives" feel that they know whats best for us and vote against our wishes. Quite amazing! No wonder we're in this mess today.
I meant to bring this to you yesterday. It is a classic from SmartknowledgeU -The Fastest Growing Export of the Western Banking Industry is Fraud "There was a reason why Pol Pot, the tyrannical Cambodian despot that murdered more than 1 out of every 5 adults in Cambodia, began his cleansing process by murdering the elderly and the literate. He literally wanted to wipe out his country’s memory of the past so he could create a new history that started with his tyrannical reign. The greatest advantage bankers and politicians have in continuing to perpetuate fraud today in America is the fact that there are very few people still alive that recall the Great Depression." I laughed the whole way thru the post. It is wonderful, spot on and why we will be hated by the world in a year or two
Now we drift off topic (somewhat). Some of you are really gonna love this one. The Market Oracle has a post by Richard Moore titled Crashing Towards A New World Social Order 2012. Now before you click away and call me a conspiracy nut, I suggest you take the time to read this post, because I think it may be quite prophetic for where we're headed as a nation/world. His views are in line with what I think could happen and may not be to far off of the mark. Yes, some of this is extreme, but I want you to open your mind and at least be introduced to the possibilty of some of this actually happening. "We can already see steps being taken to shift the corporate model towards the bureaucratic model, through increased government intervention in economic affairs. With the Wall Street bailouts, the forced restructuring of General Motors, the call for centralized micromanagement of banking and industry, and the mandating of health insurance coverage, the government is saying that the market is to superseded by government directives. Not that we should bemoan the demise of exploitive capitalism, but before celebrating we need to understand what it is being replaced with."
To validate one point of Richard's post, "On a daily basis, you will need to go through checkpoints of various kinds, with varying levels of security requirements. This is where biometrics becomes important. If people can be implanted with chips, then much of the security can be automated, and everyone can be tracked at at all times, and their past activity retrieved. The chip links into your credit balance, so you've got all your currency always with you, along with your medical records and lots else that you don't know about." I'll share this from infowars,com - Schumer, Graham Use Immigration to Push National Biometric ID Card - Look, some of you need a slap in the face to make you realize that some of this "conspiracy" stuff is coming true (at an alarming rate). Open your mind and try to put the pieces together.
Sticking with the potential police state theme from Richard's post, it must just suck to live in London. I found this on infowars.com as well and thought you needed to see it. This is an example of where the war on terrorism has taken us. In Activists Teach London Police A Lesson About Stop And Search Terror Laws you get a vid of how the intrusion of personal rights is reaching a climax. I warn you to be prepared cause we're getting ready to face the same (already are if you did not notice).
Conference Championship week and then the tourney. I may do a bracket for the blog on ESPN if anyone is interested.
Have a great evening (while you still can).
