PostSubject: Unvarnished reality...can you handle the truth ?   Sun Jun 07, 2015 3:42 pm

“What makes anyone think that government officials are even trying to protect us? A government is not analogous to a hired security guard. Governments do not come into existence as social service organizations or as private firms seeking to please consumers in a competitive market. Instead, they are born in conquest and nourished by plunder. They are, in short, well-armed gangs intent on organized crime. Yes, rulers have sometimes come to recognize the prudence of protecting the herd they are milking and even of improving its ‘infrastructure’ until the day they decide to slaughter the young bulls, but the idea that government officials seek to promote my interests or yours is little more than propaganda—unless, of course, you happen to belong to the class of privileged tax eaters who give significant support to the government and therefore receive in return a share of the loot.”

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.

Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at night.” So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?”

So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.

Then Congress said, “How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?” So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people, one to do the studies and one to write the reports.

Then Congress said, “How are these people going to get paid?” So They created the following positions, a time keeper, and a payroll officer, then hired two people.

Then Congress said, “Who will be accountable for all of these people?” So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.

Then Congress said, “We have had this command in operation for one Year and we are $18,000 over budget, we must cutback overall cost.” So they laid off the night watchman.

Many of the positions created during the 2nd world war are still manned and of course have grown with each conflict...requiring more conflicts to be justified....remember WACO...someone in congress suggested the BATF had no real purpose and might be cut and their duties given to other agencies..so the WACO slaughter  was created to show congress they were needed.

I've been startled by the growing number of govt agencies that have tactical/swat teams. It's over seventy now... with several as ridiculous as the dept of education. We're heading a direction... no matter how that is denied, rationalized, or ignored.

Yeah student loans and overdue library books must be accounted for.....

Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.
George Washington

Over grown military establishments are under any form of government inauspicious to liberty, and are to be regarded as particularly hostile to republican liberty.

Al-Qaeda and other terror groups, including ISIS. are documented CIA assets. The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan, General William Odom, admitted as much when he said “by any measure the U.S. has long used terrorism” to realize foreign policy goals.

That the “US military-industrial complex is a winner every time war breaks out anywhere in the world (usually with the assistance of the CIA) is clear to everyone by now. What wasn’t clear is just how the US predetermined the current course of events in the middleeast,” writes Zero Hedge.

It is pretty damn obvious that we are evolving into a militaristic state.

What can we do to change this shit?

Posting our concerns here isn't going to have any effect.  Are there any grass-roots organizations that have a chance of changing the status quo?  

Do we just arm ourselves with enough firearms and ammo to fend off the wackos that want to deny us our freedoms, or do we do something about it within the system somehow? Mr. CIA/FBI/NSA, I don't advocate armed resistance, but dammit, our freedoms are being taken away from us and the general populace is just allowing it to happen.

This shit has got to stop.
