When you’re a professional gardener, you don’t just throw expensive plants into the ground, you prepare the soil.
If I’ve been observing soil-preparation in the field of social and political engineering, that doesn’t make me a conspiracy advocate; it merely means I’ve been watching professionals at work.
For a long time.
These pros have been stimulating and creating trends that dovetail with Obamacare and will carry this law into the [...]
Marc Faber, publisher of the Gloom, Boom and Doom report, spoke to Bloomberg Television’s Sara Eisen and Erik Schatzker and said that investors have created a “bubble” in the “highest-quality” government bonds and should move to equities.
Faber said, “People feel so insecure that they say, ‘I’d rather be in a Treasury in America with almost no yield or in Germany with negative yield and get my money back.’ But it [...]
The only thing that is as consistent as Marc Faber’s message to get out of government bonds ahead of a bout of global hyperinflation which will arrive once the vicious cycle of printing to pay interest finally dawns (which in turn would happen once central planners lose control of an artificially created situation, which by definition, always eventually happens), is the passion with which he repeats it over… and over… [...]

From Washington Times:
Staffers of Rep. Rick Larsen boasted over Twitter that they were drinking and otherwise goofing off on the job, according to a story in the NW Daily Marker.
The website said the tweets gave off the impression of “a staffers-gone-wild bash” in the Washington Democrat’s office, including insults lobbed at the congressman himself.
“My coworker just took a shot of Jack crouching behind my desk,” one staffer tweeted, apparently referring to Jack [...]
After hijacking an aeroplane and extorting $200,000 from the FBI, DB Cooper coolly made his escape via parachute. Forty years on, is America’s most elusive fugitive finally in sight?
The night before Thanksgiving, 1971, a man calling himself Dan Cooper, wearing a suit and raincoat, walked up to the Northwest Orient desk at Portland airport in the United State’s Pacific Northwest and spent $20 on a [...]
The Orient once again transcends culinary norms with China’s introduction of an Irish staple on an American food. The victim? Good ol’ KFC, doused with…Bailey’s Irish Cream?
This unique item is part of the “Taste of Ireland” campaign being run by KFC China and involves “splashing” standard KFC chicken (according to the video) with Bailey’s Irish Cream, which is essentially dumbed down whiskey. Chicken and whiskey. Yum.

It is even more true today. We have allowed the government to grow to an outrageous and uncontrollable size. Those who should represent us instead represent and support special interests, usually to our detriment. Those who should represent us instead have become an elite that no longer understand us or our needs, though we are the majority and should be the controlling force! Corruption and incompetence run rampant.
