Third World America

With “the sequester” the next economic onslaught begins.  It further reveals the entrenchment of the pathologically rich versus the rest of each of us.  It seems wise to listen to the reality of Third World America, as laid out by Chris Hedges, because, as the battle lines continue to move, sooner or later those who felt safe from the ravages of class war find themselves targeted.  But it has been an ongoing battle.  It did not begin with “the sequester”.


Ratzinger’s Fascism

“I think that the Catholic Church as we know it, the structure of the Vatican, is passé. We’re moving beyond it. And it’s become a viper’s nest. It’s really sick, what’s going on, obviously — the cover-up of the pedophile priests.”

To prepare and not to prepare, that is the paradox

Defining the Preparedness Cycle

Preparedness is defined by DHS/FEMA as “a continuous cycle of planning, organizing, training, equipping, exercising, evaluating, and taking corrective action in an effort to ensure effective coordination during incident response.”  This cycle is one element of a broader National Preparedness System to prevent, respond to, and recover from natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and other disasters.

That is from the Department of Homeland Security’s website. I’ve always thought it interesting how schizoid the government is regarding preparing for emergencies.  Remember the “duct tape the windows” thing we were told to do in case Iraq bombed us?

Americans have apparently heeded the U.S. government’s advice to prepare for terror attacks, emptying hardware store shelves of duct tape.

Well obviously it wasn’t about actually preparing for emergencies, but was all about freaking people out in order to smear Iraq during the “biological weapons” campaign.  It’s just liars and murderers doing their thing, because this video shows us what happens to “preppers” now:


As I’ve pointed out in previous posts, there’s a lot of wild activity going on in the skies and around the globe.  Should you choose to prepare, don’t make the front page of magazines doing it. Preparation is for rich and powerful people/organizations, after all.
