Why am I writing this? My blog is being read around the world, in very specific places. Why? That would require asking why, as in too what end. This is an interesting location and time that we live in, I am thankful my Father suggested that I make the Navy a career. I am grateful for my pension and the ability to attend NASCAR races in PHX using it, while still being responsible for my debts. Debts like my mortgage and the services associated with it such as, gas bill, water bill, electricity, property taxes, oh and don’t forget the sewer bill. Merely attempting to illustrate that I, unlike some “Leaders” or “Luminaries”, or “Elitists” am not full of feces.

I am not sure what caused me to remember this one thing about that experience; I think it could be the birthday of my late Father, which was yesterday. He was ill with colon and eventually liver cancer during that time frame. You see I also remember asking my Father when I was a child, “What happens if the Russians drop the bomb on us”, as well. That question was posed to him somewhere in the very late 70’s or very early 80’s. His answer was not a deflection but a resolution of sorts. He said something to the effect that if you worry about that all the time you will never be able to provide for others or find peace in your life. Guess I should have listened to him.
What does it take? Labels to fall off, an open dialog, compromises, and much, much more. So where can the most influence be delivered in the most cost effective manner? How about you turn off your hypnotic television and find out what legislation you local city, town, or county government is creating. The overreach may enlighten you to the true intentions of your local rulers and their vision for your future. Or if you love Liberty, you may want to calibrate your way of thinking or that of your elected officials.

In this age of mass communication I would like to thank those of you in the United States for reading my thoughts, interpretations, assessments, and opinions. Especially you Uncle Sam. I would also like to thank the visitors from around the world as well, it is exciting to know, even if it is just for massive intelligence collection that my investment into getting noticed and recorded, are being spent on, employing some government poor smuck has had to create a algorithms to make sure I and others are Good Compliant Citizens, in the use of my Personal Liberties. I am not special the NSA is collecting all this data. One day I might get something published other than a mug shot, you see this stuff has plenty of up side to it.
So imagine this if you will. What is the pattern here? Institutionalized Governments require funding, funding comes from the value created through individual efforts being confiscated through legalized extortion called a tax, that accrued value is then pooled together for the Common Defense that is directed by a Commander in Chief who must dig through assessments, which are not facts and therefore lies to promote policies that will protect any hope of an increase in economic growth, sometimes lies are taken as the truth and much of the confiscated wealth is lost and more importantly blood shed and lives lost or ruined. Somewhere along the line, each and every time, something was considered more valuable than personal Liberty, and the personal Liberties of millions were spent attempting to find an answer to this equation we call life being ruled by others.
Trust our neighbors or trust the multi-headed monster that is our government?
Journalism can be propaganda when the media uses the government as a sole source and either considers the information provided as fact. Government broadcasts are Public Service Announcements (PSA’s), and marked that way after all.
When the media is used as a megaphone by the government, it is then an arm of the state, therefore not independent. Please research the history of old Warsaw Pact and inform me as how this is not relevant or apply to the American post 9/11 society and government.
