Happy Independence Day!

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

     He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
     He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
     He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
     He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
     He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
     He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
     He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
     He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
     He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
     He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
     He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
     He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
     He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
     For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
     For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
     For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
     For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
     For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
     For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
     For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
     For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
     For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
     He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
     He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
     He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
     He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
     He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

And Society Sheds Its Weak

Hate Week

Many are saying that society is breaking down. I don’t think that’s entirely true. There are pockets of chaos among the young, the sensitive, the ignorant, and the unimaginative; but there are still plenty of rational folk to go around. While these weak individuals jump on the bandwagon to partake in groupthink propaganda and rally to the cries of baseless accusations of racism, sexism and hate against one another; people are forgetting this has been a historical cycle. Every few decades, there collects a critical mass of weak individuals that bicker and fight amongst themselves about feelings and nonsense.

If you’re one of those individuals that’s surprised you got your face pushed in for wearing a Donald Trump t-shirt in a crowd of irrational angry Mexican-Americans, then you’re senses are at fault for not signaling to you the times we live in. Let me be the one to finally tell you, “You’re part of the weak”. Sure, you might think yourself brave for promoting a capitalist candidate in the center of brainwashed misplaced civil unrest that’s against what they believe to be the results of capitalism, but you must realize an angry hostile mob is full of ignorant people. The most dangerous people on the planet are the ones that would support Mao, just to avoid supporting Hitler. They believe they must make a choice, when in fact there is no choice to make. They don’t understand the world so they act out the only way they can be useful, as blunt instruments against each other. They are also part of the weak.

Usually, as a fact of mathematical principle, if you find yourself surrounded by the ignorant and irrational, it’s because you are appropriately grouped. Whether you support candidate-A or candidate-B; you’re a statist that’s already been fooled into believing you make a difference. And so many fall for the classic trap of naivety, believing people aren’t lying to you. I can call anyone a racist or a sexist but it wouldn’t make it true. And for others to assume an assertion is accurate without applying critical analysis to ascertain if the claim is true, and then to stand beside the propagandist and chant the same nonsense; they are now operating underneath their lie. People that cannot get the facts for themselves never become real leaders. They may be delegated various tasks, but they’re working under the lie of another.

The rioting will escalate and immoral criminal behavior will continue to be publicly rewarded by the other weak follower types. The people that bicker and fight with others over these trivial issues of self, personal choice and preference; are more of the weak that will destroy each other. You see these people plastering their narcissism all over social media worshipping their own cultural destruction. If they continue to have nothing to offer society, they will find themselves outside looking in. And once society has cleansed itself of its weak through these developing public spectacles of lunacy and violence; the strong will step up to repair the damage and make a lot of money doing real work helping the truly needy. Then it will start all over again.

But we must not build our houses on corpses. The weak have very little to offer society in the long term; all they bring is intolerance, hate and violence to otherwise civil proceedings. We do not want the stench of their short-sighted failure to interfere with tomorrows dreams. Hate Week begins.

Grainger Smokestacks of Conway

DMG Smokestacks Sunflare

Sunday February 7, 2016

It’s Super Bowl Sunday, and also the day of the demolition of a historic landmark. I awoke this morning to a thunderous explosion followed by a significant earth tremor. I was soon informed it was the destruction of the smokestacks of the late Dolphus M. Grainger Power Station, just over one kilometer away. I was startled by the explosion but quickly recovered. A lingering emotion was regret that I missed witnessing the demolition. I would have made an effort to wake by 6:30 AM and been at Lake Busbee by 7, standing in the cold rain with an umbrella, if I had known about it. I regretted missing the irreplaceable experience of witnessing the razing of a fifty year old local historic landmark of a town which I’ve lived for fifteen years. I regretted this for about two hours until I rationalized the misfortune and learned something important.

I accepted that I was responsible for missing an event that greatly interested me. I had been so preoccupied with work and play that I missed a major unrecoverable planned event of deep interest, occurring just a kilometer from my residence. The crashing boom that startled me from sleep was a literal wake-up call to my senses. It forced me to realize that I want to be thoroughly informed to the local affairs of the city that affects me. I began to regret less missing the demolition. I started to appreciate the omission of the foreknowledge of the event because I had learned something paramount. I became inspired and motivated to read about the power plant and write what I had learned. More importantly, I was happy I learned of myself a characteristic that I might otherwise not have discovered for much longer. I decided to embrace and own the lost opportunity. If I had been told of the destruction, I would have made a short schedule adjustment and gone to watch. Most likely I would have taken that information for granted and not have realized my deficiency. It’s of course simple to say and accept “we’re responsible for what we learn”, but it’s far more impressive a lesson to miss a grand event that affects us.

I’m going to start reading local newspapers and follow local politics. I want to know about the developments that occur around me. I can’t expect to effect desired changes if I’m ignorant of my environment. I think it’s crucial to take responsibility over our individual education. I can’t presume this is a rare epiphany unrealized by most, but I feel it’s important to share that it took me 37 years to realize I’ve been failing myself by treading water without air in my lungs. Perhaps with my head above water I can get a clear picture of where I’m at, then I’ll start to swim toward beneficial goals.

The heavens cast cosmic bands of energy over the doings of humankind. On occasion it’s necessary to admit we’re powerless to the greater reactions of natural law, but one should never wholly submit to its inferred will. Swimming against the current is arduous and often asserted to be a foolish endeavor, but it would depend on what you’re swimming from. Perhaps that branch of the stream leads one off a cliffs edge to their doom. Sometimes metaphors and similes are baseless hyperbole. They’re chosen as clever phrases intended to impress and support an argument, but with the addition of further detail, one can easily circumvent the intended meaning of a given metaphor.

In reality, the previously mentioned metaphor about swimming with the current is intended to condition you to follow orders, rather than using your intellect to make decisions or waves. Police, for example, are required to adhere to protocol and military-like rules of engagement (RoE) that are haphazardly designed to escalate more scenarios toward violence. Better judgment would be to treat all people as individuals, rather than grouping the entire public into racially profiled boxes of preset interaction methodologies. But with the ever-decreasing IQ’s of individuals comprising the various departments with enforcement capabilities; they are less capable of making rational decisions, and it becomes easier for them to rely on preset reactions.

An example of my argument would be to pay attention to the increasing number of homicides perpetrated by police. Officers believe to be “following protocol” even as they fire sixteen bullets into people walking away from them, or open fire on a misidentified vehicle because they suspect the perpetrator is inside. Enforcement divisions are becoming conditioned and transformed into reckless gangs of brutish thugs, complete will “kill order” initiations from their department heads.

You’d like to think I’m being harsh, but I’ve seen a man choked to death for merely selling cigarettes and ignoring an officer. The officers know they’re being filmed and they persist to commit murder. And then they produce the excuses “I was following protocol” or “that’s what I was trained to do”, and they back it up with “I feared for my safety”, if they’re feeling exceptionally at fault. And they perform all of this without any remorse or emotion; purely apathetic.

Well.. If I strapped on a gun and wore a useless little metal shield and entered a hostile motorized gun club gang that sought danger all day, I might fear for my safety too. But what I wouldn’t do is amplify my aggressive behavior to a point where it causes excessive danger, limiting my options to the ultimate conclusion of killing the collar. That doesn’t help anyone. I’m not even that physically built but I can disarm an assailant of their knife without murdering them. I’m also not bad at reading a scenario and using communication to diffuse it.

The departments seemingly have these uniformed aggressors brainwashed into thinking they’re Jack Bower of 24, hot on the trail of deadly terrorists, and everyone is suspect. They’re locked into “fight or flight” mode where they make decisive actions to shoot first; then taser, torture and handcuff. This is, of course, all the media allows the public to see. There are still plenty of decent public servants, but their actions seldom make headlines and sell tickets to the main event.

But much like a work of fiction or fantasy, there really are individuals that operate in collusion and secrecy, that seek to control all facets of human existence. I believe their goal is to create a critical mass of dissidents to spur support for further federalizing and militarizing the police, then their goal of removing constitutional public protections will have an obedient enforcement structure in place to better quell a revolt against collective tyranny. This is what I believe because it’s clearly stated in the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, as is a page right out of the Agenda 21 playbook. These private interests wish to replace all systems with a scientific dictatorship where all real control is in the hands of a few technocratic elites. Proof of the reality of these long-term plans and sociopathic ideology can be found in the writings of James Warburg of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR, circa 1950), as well as several modern members of that same group.

A great deal of research and original writing has already occurred and been compiled on the topic of global dominance so I’ll direct you to a source of information that matches my similar discoveries. I don’t want to tell anyone how to live their life, but it’s important for everyone to realize there are a great many number of sociopaths that don’t practice a Golden Rule philosophy. These folks will seek positions of control, and they will do much harm to any that simply wish to live and let live.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock watching reruns of Growing up Gotti, you should have recognized the United States of America is headed toward damnation. You don’t have to believe in religion to feel the hairs stand on the back of your neck, and sense the country is in distress on the brink of entering a world war. The constant state of war perpetrated by the occupation in the US has served to bankrupt the nation of our morality, credit and competitive edge. We haven’t been #1 for at least a decade.

In order to sell the public a slavery worse than the current establishment, they must degrade the quality of living to the lowest of the bar scale, so the public would be open to their asserted “improvement” toward their world-wide technocratic scientific dictatorship.

Getting back to the topic of sensibility, there is a large and increasing number of callous folk in America. Just today I witnessed new Black Friday shopper videos displaying very dangerous and cruel social interaction. I witnessed a woman grab a vegetable steamer out of the hands of a young boy right in front of his mother; mama bear wasn’t having that and went ballistic on the woman that wouldn’t return the item even after being attacked. The thief screams at the woman, “Why are you being so oppressive?” If I didn’t know better, I might have thought the incident was staged. But every single individual of notice in the American Black Friday videos were of extremely low character, incapable or unwilling to objectively view the situation with sensibility, apply critical thinking or realize what they’re doing. It was a fanatical feeding frenzy, except the dregs were competing over boxed garbage to spend money they should instead be putting toward valuable resources to survive the coming crisis. These behaviors have been occurring and coming to the forefront of the news for several years now. These individuals are literally mindless.

I see, hear and sense this is the result of full-spectrum dominant programming on a drugged population. People who are aware of the conditioning can take steps to avoid it, but those that have their head up their ass or in the sand, will continue riding the bumper cars of emotional reaction. I don’t wholly blame them. It’s fun to ignore the world and constantly entertain yourself in a loop of immediate gratification behavior. However it’s extremely irresponsible to remain ignorant of the truth and causes. It also doesn’t help that a high percentage of the Christian faith has a death wish, and programmed to ignore real cures for common modern-day ailments.

I’ve been researching blood electrification. I’ve determined that it works, and there are Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests that prove it. Just spending fifteen minutes on the internet looking up a cure for cancer will lead you into blood electrification. But if someone has a subconscious death wish, there’s an idea in their head that forces them to ignore even the most obvious of supporting evidence that the cure is valid. Patients with a death wish will constantly look for flaws of character in people supporting the cure, and of course they’ll find flaws if they look for any; so they then transfer that negativity to the validity of the evidence, then discredit the cure in their mind. This all happens quickly but I’ve witnessed the process first hand in patients. And it’s really unfortunate because a person has to have their mind on board and optimistic of any treatment in order to aid bolstering their immune system to fight the disease.

There is a design to this world and its social orders that encourages people to behave irresponsibly. People have been conditioned to be strictly reactionary. It starts with the parents, which have now also mostly received similar programming, then it continues with compartmentalization and institutionalized schooling, and even continues on into college. That’s a huge part of someone’s life, and to be programmed from the beginning for so long to be reactionary, and not critical of their environment, there’s little opportunity for someone to recover that’s been indoctrinated and conditioned for that long.

I was always a rebellious individual and asked hard questions that caused teachers to think I was being a disruptive smart-ass. That was never my intention, as I’m an introverted personality and don’t draw much attention to myself. It wasn’t until college that I learned a great deal of my teachers throughout my education were authoritarian reactionaries with little to no idea what they were doing at any given time. College also taught me critical thinking; and after that, I became unstoppable with logical argument and debate. I began breaking down social processes and interactions and pointing out character flaws. This turned me into a very moral person, which was unfortunate because I had developed a pretty good set of skills for the dark-side. I have since let the bulk of my dark-side skills to become antiquated.

Being aware of the death wish behavior opens the door to empowerment. A lot of people have problems with harmful addictions. I don’t because I’ve recognized my reactive patterns and social triggers. Sound is still an area of difficulty for me because specific frequencies, patterns and vocals invoke memories and emotional responses. But I can recognize when this happens and remove my emotions from causing undesired reactions and apply my intellect to the problem. Again this is something that happens very fast and doesn’t interrupt anything I’m doing. If you haven’t already identified the techniques, I’m using some tools of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) to remove my reactive conditioning. I was lucky to never develop a death wish from religious programming but the television proved to be an effective weapon against me. I used to be one of those poor souls that would be lost to a group of socializing people if a television was playing in the room. That damage was easy enough to reverse. I simply stopped paying the cable bill or watching T.V. Now I’m more creative, productive and happier.

In summation, my goal is to inform people; maybe trigger some to question why they do the things they do. Questioning oneself is the beginning of a fantastic process of recovery. I can be very blunt and harsh, but it’s in the best interests of education to not moderate speech. Political-correctness is a hardcore weapon against communication and social development. It is the cause of a great many number of notable conflicts throughout history. And right now that weapon has a solid hold on many young and impressionable people across the nation. I’ve witnessed behavior much like that of the Red Guards of Maoist China of the mid 1960’s. There is no such thing as exceptionalism. America is repeating very dangerous historical patterns. The sooner we all see it, the sooner we can implement a solution instead of continuing as insensible reactionaries to the causes. If you have no idea what I’m writing about, then you are my target audience. Please don’t continue down the path most travelled, because we’ve seen where that leads.
