Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
"A credit-money financial system wedded to statist politicians results in a bastard economic system, not free-market capitalism."
Mark Davis

"The history of Statism – allegedly inspired by the noble ideals promulgated in all manner of international charters – is clear evidence of what happens when a Power Structure attempts to change external reality without a prior change of the inner reality of the power holders. Without changing the state of inner consciousness to free it from ego, there can only be destruction."
Jeff Knaebel
From the Darkness:
"I don't think we're going to lose money, myself. We may, it's possible, but I doubt it in the long run."
Sen. Judd Gregg on the $700 billion bailout of the financial industry.

“We are committed to diversity at WaMu and pledge to listen to our customers and work closely with our employees to continue to make progress.” Steve Rotella, president and COO of broke and bankrupt Washington Mutual, Inc.

Big Surprise! Texas Election Is Rigged

"The Texas Supreme Court rejected a request Tuesday by Libertarian Party presidential nominee Bob Barr to keep Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama off the Texas ballot."

It seems that both the Democrat and Republican Presidential nominees did not meet the state filing deadline in Texas for the November election. This error has kept the Libertarian Party candidates and others off the ballot in the past. But it seems that the Warfare/Welfare parties get a bye in this situation. They don’t have to follow the same set of rules.

What a great example of how elections are a complete sham and rigged to allow the same set of gangsters to maintain power. Someone once said, “if voting actually changed anything it would be illegal.”
So why bother? Don’t vote!

Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
“You probably can get elected holding a chain saw and a severed head, but not if you know words of three syllables.”
Fred Reed, on elections.

“Yet the armed forces are based, at their very core, on the existence of an enemy to destroy. The very doctrine that governs your organization, your technology, and your methods, cannot exist without The Enemy. To accomplish that, the armed forces must do two things: they must devalue the lives of all who are not members of the nation, and they must set up an idol to supplant God.”
Stan Goff
From the Darkness:
"If I am sitting pretty and you've got a waitress who is making minimum wage plus tips, and I can afford it (the tax hikes) but she can't, what's the big deal for me to say I'm going to pay a little bit more. That is neighborliness."
Barack Obama, Marxist candidate for president.
"In my judgment, based upon the advice of a lot of people who know how markets work, this problem wasn't going to be contained to just the financial community."
Emperor Bush, liar and economic ignoramus

DVD Reviews

The Counterfeiters: German made film telling the true story of Jews held in concentration camps forced to counterfeit Allied money. Very interesting

The Glenn Miller Story: Jimmy Stewart stars as the band leader in this 1953 semi-biopic. A nice illustration of a man’s quest to fulfill his artistic vision.

Carlos Santana Presents: Blues at Montreux: Bobby Parker:
Part of a 3-discs series. Blues guitarist Bobby Parker plays a set with his band- a collection of very tight, accomplished musicians that help cover for the mostly average guitar work by Parker. The intensity picks up considerably when Carlos Santana joins the group for the last several numbers and Parker seems to find his groove.

Eric Clapton- One more Car, One More Rider:
E.C.’s 2001 performance in Los Angeles. The concert starts with an extensive acoustic set. Blues lovers have to wait a full hour before the first blues number. Several songs I don’t recognize which were probably from his recent release of that time. A pleasant surprise is a couple jazz tunes. All numbers are performed to Clapton’s usual level of perfection. One facet of the concert that stands out is the brilliant, soulful organ playing and showmanship of Billy Preston. Oh my, will he be missed.

I Witness:
Jeff Daniels plays a human rights investigator seeking the culprits behind a mass murder in Mexico. The local drug cartel turns out to be more honest than the local corporate/state alliance.

Standing In The Shadows Of Motown:
Excellent documentary about the Funk Brothers, the musicians behind the scores of number 1 hits produced by the Motown music factory, but who are generally unknown to lovers of the music. The documentary also includes a Funk Brothers concert held in Detroit. If you love this music it’s almost your duty to learn about the incredible, creative musicians who gave us that magical, distinctive Motown groove.

Kevin Spacey stars as a MIT professor who takes a team of student math whizzes to Las Vegas to gamble. The members work together counting cards at the blackjack tables and win thousands. Based on a true story.

Son of Rambow:
A couple British youngsters work together to make their own film inspired by Rambo.. One is a bright precocious troublemaker living in a dysfunctional family. The other strives to express his unlimited imagination despite the restraints of an ultra-religious parent. Very funny with some great child acting.

Fascist Follies

Fascism just will not die in Dallas. First, Il Duce Jerry Jones enlists the state to run people off their land and force Arlington taxpayers to subsidize a grand new playground for his millionaires. Now the City of Dallas is ready to finance a $400 million hotel for some lucky developer.

If this site next to the Dallas Convention Center is such an ideal spot for a hotel, the city need not spend stolen money to get one built. At least one developer would be more than eager to build such a project. And if that proposed project looked promising to lenders, that developer will have no problem receiving the financing.

Instead we have city council political hacks using Soviet style central planning to achieve a vision of what they think Dallas should look like rather than allow the market place to decide. You just know some council members can look forward to some sizable bribes in pushing this idea.
The Dallas City Council just recently admitted they don’t have enough money in their budget to fix all the street potholes yet see no problem with forcing their tax serfs to guarantee a $400 million loan. Flush this idea down the commode and spray the room with Glade.

Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
"Tolerance is what panarchy is about, that is, tolerance by people of those who live across the social divides that they wish to make for themselves. Social divides need not be territorial divides. There is plenty of room for everyone and plenty of ways to accommodate the different ways of others without compelling everyone to live under one set of laws in this vast region we call the United States of America."
Michael Rozeff

"If people are as incapable, as immoral, and as ignorant as the politicians indicate, then why is the right of these same people to vote defended with such passionate insistence?"
Frederic Bastiat

From the Darkness:
“Our national leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God. That's what we have to make sure that we're praying for, that there is a plan and that plan is God's plan."
Sarah Palin, brutal War Wench, defending the US invasion of Iraq.

"They understand the challenges that we have in this world. They see the Russian invasion of the little country called Georgia. They see the problems in Afghanistan growing larger. They see a whole lot of things happening in the world that's going to require us to serve, and that opportunity has to be provided to them."
War criminal, John McCain, voicing support for “national service.”

Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
"Watch the conventions with an eye to what the political class wants to do for you. Everything they promise has a flip side of what they want to do to you. And the power to do these things has to come from the violence of the state, and using that violence requires a form of total control over government and society. They may look nice and sweet. They may claim to love you and your family and community. But their political ideology is actually steeped in hatred for your liberty and property. They seek an end to your freedom to seek a better life.
They seek dictatorship. All the rest is illusion."
Lew Rockwell

"Kids need to see the military for what it is (a big centrally-planned bastion of irrationality) and recognize that obedience to authority is neither manly nor a demonstration of adulthood. Blindly following orders and giving orders is tantamount to humans behaving like insects. It’s the polar opposite of how business is successfully managed and teaches not self-discipline but simple obedience…the more doglike the better. It is truly Orwellian Newspeak to see how inverted the propaganda remains; large numbers of people actually think the Army or Marine Corps will make a "man" out of their adolescent. By the same logic, so might playing Russian roulette while being hazed by an upper classman at a college frat house. "
David Calderwood

From the Darkness:
"You know, I've been called a maverick; someone who marches to the beat of his own drum. Sometimes it's meant as a compliment and sometimes it's not. What it really means is I understand who I work for. I don't work for a party. I don't work for a special interest. I don't work for myself. I work for you."
John McCain, deluded, lying war criminal.
"I think John was a hero in Vietnam.
I know what his children say of him. And his courageous service to America in war and peace leaves no doubt what our forefathers would make of him."
Cindy McCain, wife of murderous war criminal, John McCain.
[Cindy- The "forefathers" would carve him up and toss his remains in a rice patty, as the Vietnamese should have done.]

Meet Sarah- The New War Wench

I did not watch a single second of the political conventions. I read a few news reports and observations- just enough to keep up with the evil intentions of politi-gangsters that claim to own me. One detail that caught my eye was that Sarah Palin has a baby born in April. So here’s a woman that doesn’t hestitate to abandon her newborn (with Down’s Syndrome, no less) in order to become part of the murderous Amerkian regime. Is not power the ultimate seductress?

If elected, watch Sarah as she explains how the state owns your children.
Watch Sarah justify taking the lives of foreigner’s children as an acceptable cost of maintaining imperialistic ambitions.
Watch Sara lead the cheers for those solider boys directly responsible for taking those lives.
Watch Sarah encourage the sheep to sacrifice their children (not hers) in the Amerikan Empire's growing list of wars.
Watch Sarah neglect a special child with special needs that only a mother can fulfill.
Country First!
Queen Hillary must be so jealous to find that there is a new War Wench on the block; a War Wench even more bloodthirsty and unconscionable.
