Republic vs Democracy

28 03 2009

One of the things that is very hard for me personally is to admit when I am wrong. Well folks, it seems that I have been wrong about something. I, like many people I know, thought that a Republic and a Democracy were the same thing. The differences were very fuzzy to me and I have to honestly say that I have been wrong. I could blame the public school system, however they didn’t prevent me from grabbing a dictionary or encyclopedia to lookup these terms. Its my fault and Im humbly admitting to my mistake.

Whew, now that Ive got that out of the way, below is a video that explains the difference. Now that I know the difference, its my duty to share this information with you as well. The video is a little over 10 minutes, well worth the watch. It outlines the different types of government and how each one works. Briefly. This is like a Cliff Note. I like how this video doesnt make judgements or give opinions. Its all factual. This is something I will show my kids when they are older (and exist!).

British Politican gives it to the Prime Minister!

25 03 2009

What else can be said about this video?? Well, American Politicans take note of the bravery and brilliantly executed grammatical magic this man works on the Prime Minister. Daniel Hannan (his blog at: www.hannan.co.uk) gets two thumbs up for standing up for the British people. Bravo dude, bravo. He elaborately illustrates the current British economic situation by comparing it to a sinking ship. As laughter is heard, make no mistake of it, this is no laughing matter. I would give almost anything to hear a senator give it to Obama like this. Call out the man in front of the world and set the truth loose. Seriously, in my honest opinion there has never been a more dire time in America’s short history for the rebirth of the founding fathers’ spirit, genius, and grace from God than right now. Yes folks, I am referring to the latest news of mandatory community service with a complete denial of being allowed to pray or express one’s religious views (no praying to Mecca 5 times a day either), taking over private business, enormous increases in tax rates, and using the Bill of Rights for the chosen one’s toilet paper to just name a few. Where does it stop? It doesnt with this government. Any half brained nit wit with a vague history lesson of the soviets and the nazis would be able to draw a plethora of similarities to our current administration. Hell, you could even say the same things about Bush, Clinton, and Bush. Wow, what times these are. I know that this blog has earned me the title of ‘Terrorist’, but I could care less. I am not afraid. Neither is Daniel Hannan. You’ve given me inspiration. Right on brother, right on.





The Obama Deception

19 03 2009

No doubt that someone was going to make a claim that there is something not quite right about what we saw during the most recent presidential campaign and its victor, Barack Obama. The question is, who really wins from this? Leave it to the wacko crazy far outfield Alex Jones to stir the muck that is American Politics. Is Alex Jones crazy? Is he a wacko? Well, if you watch his previous films then most likely you would resound a loud YES. However, there has been some truth to his claims in the past. So should we sit through this 2 hour documentary if all there is to gain is some truth? Well, I have already done so for you. Let me say that I am very surprised at the multitude of accuracies in this film. I cannot confirm all the numbers, but so far they are pretty much spot on.

Alex Jones makes many claims, which I think should be taken with a grain of salt if not a whole handful. However, I can’t tell you that this film is 100% in error. There is a claim he makes (a valid point unknown to most people) that I will back up. On this blog, I told you about the collapse of Argentina in 2001 … surprisingly to me, Alex Jones mentions how international banks have destroyed and taken over 3rd world countries. From my research of Argentina, he is accurate in his claim and how this was/is done. This exact thing happened in Argentina. I think this little vid is actually pretty good and worth the watch. Im going out on a limb by putting it on my blog and risking being classified as a ‘wacko’ but that really doesnt bother me. I knew I was crazy when I was a kid. Thus the title, A MINDLESS BLOG. This is the place I dump my random ideas that seem like good ones at the time. If anything, this serves as the evidence needed to convict me of being insane. What else could I be? Free Markets? Freedom? Liberty? Personal property rights? Right to Life? Freedom of Speech, Religion, Press, and the Right to Assemble? Right to bear arms???? I must be completely insane.

I dont align myself with either party even though by hosting Glenn Beck’s vids must make me a Republican (just like owning a gun makes me a murderer or that I am a father makes me a deadbeat) … Look at what I said. I have to declare the party Im aligned with! This is insane! It doesnt matter. Im an American, as you. That is where my allegiance lies. Well, after God of course. Yes, I said it. Here, let me add more salt to the wound … Jesus Christ IS Lord. Im trying to wake people up. So here is THE OBAMA DECEPTION for your viewing pleasures. Ask questions. Ask LOTS of questions.

Chaos breaks out at ‘America’s Next Top Model’ audition in Manhattan

HAHAHA When are people going to learn? Seriously! Wow, what can I say except for this deserves a MEGA LOLZ!

“Pandemonium erupted outside an “America’s Next Top Model” casting call in midtown yesterday when an overheating car triggered a stampede of catwalk-craving cuties.

Screaming as they ran for their lives, hundreds of hotties in heels toppled over barricades along W. 55th St. after several people in the crowd started yelling, “There’s a bomb!”

By the time the model madness ended, six women were injured and two women and one man were busted for inciting a riot, authorities said.


“Everyone was so compressed, I don’t think they could breathe,” said Alex Saavedra, 23, who escorted his girlfriend to the audition. “Then they started passing out.”


“We all fell on top of each other,” said Rose, of Scranton, Pa. “People were squished against the wall, screaming, ‘I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!’ ”

This Is What Happens When an Economy Collapses: Argentina 2001

8 03 2009

How does a country rich in natural resources, abundant worker skills, and a generally educated/literate population suffer a complete economic collapse? (Video links below)

Unknown to most Americans is the disastrous economical collapse of Argentina. Taking a very quick glance at Argentina’s situation before the collapse can be absolutely frighting. These things mirror the current situation here in America in an alarming way. The very first thing one will find when researching Argentina is that the cause of their problems can be first discussed by looking at DEBT. The banks, specifically. The Argentinian government is not innocent as the policies they set in motion hastened the demise of Argentina’s economy.

One woman in the video talks about how she has saved her money throughout her life and one day the banks shut their doors and kept her money. Another, a man who has been selling newspapers for 65 years, points out that all his hard work and suffering to set up a retirement for himself was stripped away by the banks/government. Another person explains the process known as ‘bicycling’ debt and how it happened in Argentina.

During the collapse, the Argentinian government declared they could fix the problem. So what did they do to fix the problem? They began printing money and handing it out to the banks and big companies … does this sound familiar? Wonder what happened from those policies? Dont let me steal the fire, you have to see the video and hear/see it for yourself.

Finally, all the past debt and the new debt from these failed policies were placed upon the people to pay back … you seriously have to watch this video. Educate and inform yourself. In regards to the policies of the current American government, I have come to the conclusion that they will not work for us, the people, and that history shows us this very same result. I started this blog to help spread information and to allow you a chance to learn something about what these policies are doing to our current way of life and our country. Some people believe that the current American policies will be successful … folks, these policies have never worked for the people of a country … ever. They work for the greedy bankers, the government officials, and big business. Its a long hard road of learning what works and what doesnt. I hope I can help you along that journey.

You cannot ignore the past or the truth because it goes against what you think and believe! Socrates said it best : I know that I know nothing. Educate yourself. Even if you think you know something, test yourself on it and make sure you really know what you think you know.

These things REALLY happened in Argentina. This country is completely devastated. Even though this very thing could happen right here in the US, it most likely wouldnt be identical to this. We tend to do things bigger in the US so lets think big! If we are going to collapse, how about if the whole world goes with us … hold on a minute, isnt that whats happening now? Do you lay down or do you educate yourself? Network with like minds? Write a letter to your senator? Just hope for the best?
