presidential spending

I wrote and published this September 20, 2008. People keep bringing up the grand mythology about Republicans being fiscally responsible and as often as not cite Reaganomics as some magical system that we would be fortunate to have back. I would kind-of like to update the charts, but it would be tricky as the Clinton I administration began heavily fudging the numbers and it has escalated ever since. The Truth Of The Matter: This ridiculous game that is being played out by the king makers and sold to the masses bothers me. Those six guys controlling the media make it seem like there are stark choices between the two candidates everyone is being shown. They simultaneously ignore true economic fundamentals […]

Boosting Your Immune System

What NOT to Eat […]

investment security today

The dollar, the stock markets, bonds and mutual funds have been dancing on the edge of a major precipice since 1988. Many trained, knowledgeable analysts have described it. I have studied both sides of this for over 20 years. The Federal Reserve and other central banks of the world have constantly and continually kept it on life support by printing more paper money and creating its electronic equivalent out of thin air. While this props the whole house of cards up, it will make the final fall that much faster, more violent and destructive. And they always fall. The US dollar has the record for lasting longer than any unbacked paper currency in history. But that too is coming to […]

election foreplay

Of the 316,128,839 people in the USofA, we are supposed to believe there are only a handful who are qualified to be President Of The US (POTUS). The media monopoly parades this handful in front of us for a couple of years while they jostle, squirm and wriggle to be near the top of the cheerfully-decorated slime pot when the final 12 month show begins. In its first century, there were unlimited political parties. Loyalties shifted with the people, times and events. That was difficult to control and manage for those who wished such power. While liberty thinks of that as A Good Thing, those who would rule found it a problem to be solved. Solve it they did, while […]

fair is for suckers

The gang has been slaving away at Parker Brothers’ Monopoly Game for a couple of hours now. This is a serious game. In spite of all his advantages, The Banker is going down. Not that he made too many awful decisions, but he just wasn’t smart and lucky enough to stay on top. This is a serious, adult game, and a dog eat dog, take no prisoners world. Except for Quantitative Easing – the secret weapon. He may not have been as clever, smart, alert and/or fortunate as the rest of the group, but when it comes to devious, he’s the champ. Stashed into his coat pocket is a complete replacement set of Monopoly Money (Actually, three or four sets, […]

3 Dangerous Cooking Oils

That You Thought Were Healthy AliceChemical “Foods”, Future of Food, Healthy Living Walking the aisles of your local grocer, you are no doubt bombarded by the selection of so called “healthy oils”. Trying to decipher which ones are good for high heat cooking, which ones are safe to use in salad dressing and which ones to avoid altogether can be unnecessarily stressful and time consuming. Let me set the record straight. Vegetable oils are often considered the safe bet and marketed as “heart healthy” but what most Americans don’t know is the omega fatty acids found in these oils can do more harm than good. The World Health Organization recommends that a healthy ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty […]

do-it-yourself root canal

If you think my experience with natural healing a flu I was likely to survive anyway was impressive, I waited quite a while to even post this next one. I’m still struggling to believe it myself. Don’t let the heading fool you, that’s just my copy editor being his perverse self. I have a little expertise with root canals, having had 4 done in my mouth; one a re-do of another that wasn’t quite right. Those were all tooth infections gone big, bad and ugly. I had another almost kill me. The incompetent monopolist MD in Grangeville kept ramping up the dosages of prescription antibiotics without ever diagnosing my sinus pain complaint as a massive tooth infection. In desperation, I […]

flu – rolling with the punches

Saturday night I felt a bit off. Sunday I was definitely not well, but helped Jeff install the new Conner VHF repeater on the knoll above our house anyway. Monday removed all doubt. . I . was . sick. Missy recalls a candid MD telling her she could do nothing and get well in about fourteen days. Or he could prescribe some stuff for her to take and she would recover in about two weeks. I have heard and experienced similar. It’s a virus. They don’t have reputable tools for viruses. I added Lung, Bronchial & Sinus Health and Defense Plus to my supplement diet. They have served me well for a lot of years. I definitely needed all the […]

Cure for Ebola Confirmed by Sierra Leone

Ebola Treatment Is Working According to Official In Sierra Leone, So Why Such Opposition? (SIERRA LEONE) – A government official in Sierra Leone says that some people are recovering from Ebola because of a new treatment. The Minister of Information Alpha Kanu recently wrote in a letter that “this works; people are getting better.” But efforts to get this information and the treatment itself to people have met with great opposition on the part of the United States FDA and others. At this point, every option to treat Ebola, both pharmaceutical and natural, remains experimental. So why is this one option being met with so much resistance? The option that has Kanu’s enthusiastic approval is a nutrient that is not […]

Ebola Vaccines to the Rescue?

Posted by Dr Sircus on October 21, 2014 We are being warned that the epidemic may not end until the world has a vaccine against the disease, according to Professor Peter Piot, director of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He is one of the scientists who discovered the virus. There are three vaccines now being fast-tracked through early safety trials in volunteers in the UK, the US and in unaffected Mali to ensure that they do no harm, reports the Guardian but the safest vaccines still have their problems and sometimes their toxicity seriously hurts and kill people without help from any virus. Test results should be available by the end of November or start of […]

ammo load testing

I meticulously assembled 7 groups of loads with 165-grain Hornady SST bullets. The hand-weighed charges ran from 5 with 43.4 grains of Varget powder to 5 with 44.0 grains, every group of five separated by tenth-of-a-grain increments. I also loaded up and tested 7 groups of 168-grain Sierra HPBT match bullets. These were pushed out by 42.7 to 43.3 grains of Varget, also groups of five in tenth-of-a-grain increments. My shooting was all done at 200 yards from a bench rest through the Leopold scope my .308-caliber AR-10 always wears. The wind was kind to me, not disturbing us at all. The targets were some 50-foot rapid-fire pistol targets I had a lot of. While not ideal for load testing, […]

double standard bearer

The pattern continues. Please make a note of this incident somewhere that will reappear ten and twenty years hence. US NAVY DISCHARGES HUNTER BIDEN FOR COCAINE USE They have proven repeatedly for 20 years that illicit drug use is no barrier whatsoever to being put in charge of continuing the war against people who use non-big-pharma drugs. Also rather obvious is the oligarchy ruling USofA. There is a definite ruling class. You are not welcome. No matter what they do, welcome they are. Is there even a snowball’s chance in … that baby Biden will ever get punished for drug use? How about the non-ruling class people? Two Million Every Year – LIVES DESTROYED. Thank you Joe Biden. Thank you […]

looking forward

Considering how people regard their lives made me realize the driver’s-eye view is a good metaphor. Sit in your own car, or anybody else’s, and you will find the view FORWARD is completely dominant. There are three little rear-view mirrors making up a tiny percentage of the whole picture. What you are doing NOW is right, square in front of you. Where you are going is new and varied. You have abundant choices with vast vistas and a multitude of options. Behind you is worth knowing and certainly how you got to your current location. However, the only way to change your past is to keep going forward. The only way to improve the view behind you is by wisely […]


A significant proportion of high school construction costs are in the attached Coliseum. This artifact helps teach the masses that do-ers are select and few while watchers are common. Even players of one act are watchers for most shows. “Nearly all of you are designed to watch.” The mass media monopoly takes over after graduation, reinforcing this lesson for life. Whether it is musical performing, acting, sports, research or any other endeavor, our media-dominated culture celebrates precious few, relegating to the masses passive observation. This is particularly handy if, for example, you are part of a ruling class that wants a compliant peasant class comfortable believing every statement from podiums, stages and specially-designated actors. Some of us fall through the […]
