Words Matter

We are becoming a nation of THUGS.....

Doctors @ Gitmo assisting in the the torture of detainee's...
Shooting spree's of unimaginable horror.....
Talk show's spreading hate and worse on national TV.....

The "WAR" on terror, the rabid right, liberal left, WallStreet robber barons blah, blah, blah....

The MEDIA labels everything and everybody

Have we not learned the lessons of the past?

Of pompous jerks & Wallstreet perks

Anyone who says that their is NO class warfare have only to compare the Wallstreet (AIG) bailout vs the SAD excuse of a Bailout for car manufacturers.

I am NOT a fan of unions, the only thing they ever did for my dad was take his money, however FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, can we at least PRETEND we give a shit for the people in our country who actually work for a living?????

Whatever happens with our country and the economy, one thing is clear: We are already have a caste system in this country:
Nascar or greens fee's
Walmart or Saks?
Madoff or layoff?

Their really ARE two America's, which one do you live in?

A violent shift in the GOP?

I have seen an increasingly disturbing trend in the GOP leadership: A penchant for violence.

The path to violence starts with the refusal to recognize that you have been wrong, and a individual or group feels that they are victims.

Given the theme of CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) in DC last week it is evident that the GOP not only does not believe that America's current situation is even partially their fault.
THEIR PATH is and has been correct, it is the rest of us who are wrong!!. When you combine this pathological mentality with rhetoric that concludes that our very FREEDOM & LIBERTY is at stake due to the 'LIBERALS', you have a recipe for violent upheaval, and dare I say it: CIVIL WAR?

According to the brain trust of the GOP, when America voted it out of office starting in 2006, it was the result of the MSM/drive-by media working in conjunction with the liberal left, NOT due to its failed policies/principles....

Paradigm Shift Continues

As I have stated numerous times, the REVOLUTION is speeding up.
As the DOW continues its free fall, so does our way of life.

I am SICK TO DEATH of the comparisons to the great depression, because I KNOW that the times are much more dire that in the 30's.
Case in point:

1.In the 30's , 29% of America worked on farms or in farm related jobs. Meaning they had access to food, even when money was scarce or nonexistent.Also most of America bought food in local farmers markets
Today less than 1% of us have access to food OTHER THAN STORE BOUGHT. What will happen when you have no cash, or worse the stores have little to no food?
We are so dependent on Supermarkets, that ANY interruption of food delivery will cause Panic and social unrest.

2. In the 30's, less that 20% America owned property(AKA a house). They rented, and/or lived with family.With home ownership @ record highs(60% +), losing your home while unemployed is a invitation to homelessness at worst and hopelessness at best. Nothing like a gypsy lifestyle to underscore the gravity of your personal finances, and put millions of Americans @ personal risk. Ever been homeless? I have, trust me nothing sucks more, and frankly most Americans are not mentally prepared or physically able to handle this situation.

3. In the 30's America had record budget surpluses. SO we had money to invest in ourselves
Today we have the pending insolvency of the government due to record deficits to look forward too. We will borrow money to address this crisis, and this will only hurt the US long term.
Look for a crashing dollar and crushing inflation in the years to come.

4. Our World is in crisis, even more so than the 30's. Yes we had a WORLD WAR, but we had NO WMD'S, so we could not euthanize ourselves. Now we can...
Today, we have multiple nations vying for the same shrinking pool of natural resources: FOOD, WATER, FUEL ETC, ETC. These nations ALL have Nuclear capabilities. What do you think will happen if say India and Pakistan have a 'Resource War' ? Or if one of the many countries that 'hate' us decide that America can be taken out by a 1st strike, or because they have NOTHING to lose in attacking us?

The problems are pandemic, their solutions require political will, and tragedy is inevitable....

If POTUS Obama can convince Congress to care more about America, than getting re-elected, perhaps we can muster the political will to solve the current crisis(s).
If he cannot, the World as we have know it will change irrevocably.

No census, no Judd Gregg in Cabinet..

With the census being pulled into the White House, I would expect GOP HHS Nominee Judd Greg to withdraw his name within days...

The ONLY reason he "Put his Hat" into the ring was TO control the coming census.

Do not think for a minute that Gregg had ANY bi-partisan leanings. He was/is a TROJAN Horse for the GOP in a 'Hail-Mary' for control of the redistricting FUN to come in 2010.

I have no sources, just a 'hunch' based on the simple fact that the GOP was willing to GIVE UP A SEAT in 2010, with Gregg as Commerce head.
The GOP would ONLY make a move like this if THEY WERE GETTING SOMETHING "EFFING VALUABLE(in blogo speak!!)" . With the census PRIZE out of reach, I doubt that they will allow Gregg to continue.


Again Barack offers the GOP his hand in friendship, only to receive a fist in return

Class Warfare--The final STRAW

3/4 of a TRILLION dollars for big business, while average Americans lose their jobs in record numbers.
Owner occupant foreclosures forced upon 'solvent' mortgages due to banks protecting balance sheets.
120 Billion dollars lost in Iraq(That we know of!!) 80 Billion lost in the TARP

If we had JUST the money the BA frittered away, we could extend Heath Care to every America

So far, NOT a PENNY for middle America.
Congress fiddles while America burns.

WE are done as a World Leader...

If you think life sucks now, wait until the US loses 1 Million jobs in a month.....

More Bad News for Auto Industry & the 'Green' movement

Another sign that highlights the need to move DIRECTLY to hydrogen is the coming shortage of LITHIUM .
Currently a 'cheap' plentiful commodity @ under a buck a kilogram, lithium prices will soar by 2015. In fact Lithium will become increasingly scarce and shortages will likely derail any chance of cars like the chevy volt from becoming a alternative mode of transportation.

When will we realize that only hydrogen, the core element in the universe will solve our energy problems?

The birth of the American COMACRACY

When you hear that the FED is going to create a "BAD BANK" to buy the TOXIC ASSETS that are killing the banking system, it will be proof that the government has conceded the financial collapse of our NATION...

A move of this sort is the 'poison pill' of finance. It would move the bad debt off of current bank books, ensuring the viability of the COMMERCIAL BANKING SECTOR at the expense of the Federal government.
This will create a 'COMACRACY', a governing body that consists of business and governmental entities.


We literally & figuratively would not own our country.

Third Nation or Collapse?

Every four years we hear "This is the most important election in history"

Only this time it was true. Fortunately WE made the correct choice. Can we now fix America?

Let me be very clear, America faces the same prospects as the former USSR


1. Lack of direction for the goldmine of "Green" technologies.The Oil economy is dead, (Hydrogen via Fusion and/or Fuel Cell Technology) is the future. The country that leads this change will dominate the 21st century. If we do not lead, China, India or the EU will.
2. Partisan politics . If we do not stand together, we most assuredly will fall apart. As a Nation we have NOT shown that we can stand together during tough times.
3. The class/culture wars MUST end. We should all have a chance to share in the wealth of this Nation. The trend of the wealthiest 1% becoming a 'protected' class is a losing game for 99.9% of the country.Unfortunately the 1.10th of 1% that continue to benefit from our current direction have no reason to want change, and they are not known for their "Giving Nature"

The concept of 'Third Nation' is based on a simple historical fact:

Fundamental widespread change will either make or break a Nation

Greece,Rome, the British Empire and the former USSR are all examples of this principle in action. In each case the inability, or unwillingness to change brought about a inevitable collapse of a once great society. As the worlds only superpower (like Rome) , an American collapse would have global impact. History paints a bleak picture for the World when a global power dies before a new world 'Leader' is crowned.

For the first 100 years of this countries existence, our economy was "Slave Labor" driven.
We were the last western nation to abolish slavery, and join the industrial revolution. This was the "First Nation" of our Republic. The fundamental change to an industrialized OIL driven economy was the root cause of the civil war. When the dust settled we had a new nation, and a new economic driver: OIL.
Oil drove our industrial revolution thus our economy for over 120 years, and we became "The Second Nation", the current state of America.

The "Third Nation" is a Hydrogen driven economy. The myths of Bio-Fuels, Clean Coal, Nuclear (Fission) energy are just that; MYTHS and unsustainable as prime movers of our Nation or the World. While the above energy sources should be utilized as 'stop-gaps' , they are NOT the solution. Unfortunately a paradigm shift of this magnitude will not happen without great pain. Only with the leadership of a STRONG America can the world make this change peacefully.

These are dangerous times for America and the World at large. We have to prepare for possibility that the "pains" of this rebirth could be equal to or greater than those of the late mid to late 1800's.

The power brokers of the World will not relinquish their domination without a fight.
History teaches us the perils of fundamental change. We are already seeing the the pains of this change: The collapse of our financial industry, the division within our nation, and the ever rising costs associated with our dwindling energy resources.
While the cost of Oil has been driven down by the weakened economy(& the fact that Oil Speculators were busted), this change is temporary. Oil, Coal and LNG are finite resources. Nuclear energy touted by many as a possible "Fix" is also a finite source.
If we were to convert our entire energy platform to Nuclear energy as France has done, we would exhaust the global supply of uranium within 10 years.(And unleash a environmental nightmare of spent fuel rod storage that will guarantee a future disaster of unprecedented proportions)

If we can put a man on the moon in ten years, we can make this fundamental change within our lifetime.
We have NO CHOICE. The cost of failure is too high.....
