Conspiracy Rants and Discussions
Amazing. America’s largest independent media company, Democracy Now, reported a leak posted by Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch where, for already three years, theUS belt has been negotiating with 8 Pacific nations, behind closed doors, to allow the mega corporations to romp around their global playground, evading their own local laws and allowed to take their issues to certain countries. The global age when American workers will be competing almost directly against Mexicans and Chinese, and when nations will be essentially squashed by the global corporate power, will soon take a big step forward.
Globalization: when a woman inMissouri,USAactually offered to work for me for $3 an hour. Maybe she’s pregnant and desperate for work, and competing against rates I can easily enough get in certain countries in the world (India,Ukraine,China). The lowest I’ve been able to go. I can be proud to employ people at the world’s minimum wage.
yo man, had to go for another visa run yesterday and decided to spend the opportunity to read some more of “Confessions of an Economic Hitman“. Got to where he is now hired to convince this Torrijos dude to keep the Panama Canal in US hands. Apparently Panama was created by CIA instigated revolt from within to break off from Colombia and then set up a puppet government to give the canal to the US. So this guy, working for a private secret company, is involved in heavy shit, and talks about how countries like Iran are overthrown from within. Cheaper than sending in military, which puts lots of cash in coffers of industry, including reconstructionefforts after, which inevitably all get farmed out to the same big boys. So a little Vietnam once in a while is good for profits, otherwise most of the time its people like this who come to a country with a million bucks in their briefcase to instigate discontent, or just bribe. He looks in the president’s eye and says,
“Hey man, if I can’t convince you the next guy in line is the assassin, and after him it’s the entire military”. Empire continues. But now its more veiled in the sense of global corporations, using IMF as a tool to convince third world countries to accept huge loans to fund massive infrastructure projects (lucrative projects which all go to, you guessed it, the big boys). His job is to inflate the econometrics of their supposed upcoming explosion in growth to warrant higher loans, bigger projects/profits, so they end up with massive debts, are enslaved to the big banks/boys and must give up their sovereign rights and remaining natural resources to pay it off. F*cking genius a*sholes.
Okay, getting stoned as usual, but it’s fun every morning dazing out at the sea while lying in my bungalow bed and drift in thoughts. Here’s one you might get a tickle out of. You know that picture you’ve seen a thousand times showing the evolution of man from ape, always getting a bit taller? And then those jokes as he ends up in front of the computer etc. Here’s my take of it. The last picture in the series, perhaps with some pictures leading up to it, is in a squatting position. Okay, this is gross, but he’s eating the shit coming out of one man’s ass as another man is doing the same to him. The concept/message being that most of humanity has reduced itself to brown nosing and listening to orders in order to survive.
Yah, maybe all this mess is a product of the 1% and controlling groups trying to keep the little people in a constant state of fear and intimidation. Apparently in theUSnow it is standard practice to sound alarms in primary etc. schools, cart off all the children in a bus somewhere without the knowledge of their parents. Some young kids get in a tantrum and apparently are wrestled to the ground and handcuffed by policeman, in front of all the students. The state raising their children for eventual and total mind control.
It’s the four page extraveganza of taking the truck off Cyprus. “I didn’t know but I guess the guy on the Cyprus side just took the paper he needed and threw the rest in the bin. Now I’m in Greece with no proof that I paid all the dues.” It’s funny because it always ends with something like “after two hours running from office to office and building to building the fellow kindly photocopies them for me” When the 13th person tells you to pay another unexpected 300 Euro and you bolt, “if a police in Europe asks me why there is no record of my truck entering the continent I’ll blame some incompetent bureaucrat” Freaking hilarious man. This one is almost better than the Istanbul Airport Disaster because everyone is talking about how corrupt and bloated Greece is.
Heh heh, can’t remember where you are reading at the moment but makes me chuckle, and looking forward to rereading it again through your eyes. Many times I find I just have to blow things off with a good dose of humour, otherwise I’d look at least ten years older by now.
“And discovered I was totally in the wrong location.” OMG I’m laughing so hard people are going to LOVE this. [My sister is editing stories of my life, as she is an editor and we will try to publish it as a book.]
Well said, and:
(or they don’t think they have other options)
that is another weapon against them. Besides the fear there is the lack of confidence. You guys are smart and you have the tools to “stay ahead of the game”. I’m just worried what will happen when/if the entire game falls apart. The desperate people taking it too much to the streets. The puppetteers are pulling strings and using the restless crowd to their favour. I’ve downloaded stuff about growing veggies but have little practice. But income always seem to come from miraculous sources. Trying to focus my mind more. Been too scattered before I think.
Yeah, I’ve lost most of my fear that’s kept me from taking the plunge. Also up until now I didn’t really have a viable plan – now that Jens has gone on his own and I see how much I can help him (through finding business for him, and helping him with marketing), it makes the dream of being free much more realistic. But most of what was holding me back was fear of losing income and the need to cover many of my costs. I’ve broken down that fear by being laid off twice these past 3 years (I’ve learned that I am very resilient and can pretty much make things happen), and by putting together a plan that I can execute quickly with Jens when the time is right. I will really only fully appreciate this when I actually take the plunge, but already I see how 90% of theUSpopulation is so dead, just going through the motions of going to work, getting a paycheck that barely covers costs, but just enough that they feel “secure” and docilely go through the motions of life every day, scraping by and living small lives. As long as their employers provide just enough for them that they can get by, they will put up with so much, because they have no other options (or they don’t think they have other options). But life will get harder and harder for the working class as inflation accelerates…the only way to keep ahead is to build a business that really adds value and be in control of it, or find a way to live completely free of the money society, as you have done – and find alternate ways to add value by creating existences that plug into nature’s richness and share nature’s bounty.
That’s great you guys are gonna cut the umbilacle chord. But the path to totall freedom continues from there, and its a wonderful journey. My eventual goal to be completely free of money. Dreams of the future. Biggest dream now, after I accomplish somethign with my Africa project, is to build a super green tourist resort in jungle, with permaculture organic food growing around in forest, teach people that, coexistence with wild nature, as self-sufficient as possible. Shower from waterfall and bamboo construction. Love watching the dreams unfurl, although patience is a necessary virtue. Zdenek found me through helpx.net. Pretty cool concept. Good that you’re calculating everything before making the big move. I paid through my ass cause I flew by the seat of it, haha, but everyone takes their own route. Fun chatting as usual. 🙂
that’s awesome! 🙂 How did Zdenek find you? I think it’s great that Keta is helping you publish a book about your experiences – so many people will want to hear your story. How is that project coming along? I’m doing well, plotting with Jens when I should cut off the corporate employee umbilical chord and become a free agent with him, and move down to live with him while we grow his business. It takes some planning and coordination as I have to manage fixed costs (monthly student loan payments, health insurance payments) and save up some money to cover my costs while we ramp up his biz, but we are encouraged by the huge demand we see for quality tech consulting/development work. I’ll keep you posted as my plans firm up. Can’t wait to be free and in charge of my own destiny…
oh I just mentioned it because I’m a bug about eyeball stuff, having only one. It seems like bacterial stuff attacks the eyeballs, I don’t know, just a haha. Yeah man, this allergy season has been torture! I don’t even have allergies. I know these things come on when you’re older but this is insane! everyone is talking about it. I feel so bad for people who had allergies all their lives, I never had sympathy for them before because I just figured, “so what, your nose is running big deal you big baby”. But it is a big deal, my friend and neighbour Marie is allergic to a bush that grows on my landlords side, we take turns every year trying to kill it. I was sitting with her in her living room when an allergy attack came on, let’s just say a huge amount of Kleenex was involved and it wasn’t pretty! I was telling her I got hit with a one-minute long sneeze attack in the night sneeze sneeze sneeze*pause*sneeze sneeze sneeze sneeze*pause*sneeze sneeze sneeze sneeze sneeze sneeze sneeze sneeze I was sort of laughing but really not, and there wasn’t enough tissue to fix the problem once I was done. She said sometimes in the night she has to get up to take a shower to wash the pollen off herself. This weekend I was just outside on my front walk and I swear to you I wanted to pull my eyeball out of my socket and scratch it with a kitchen scrubber!! Or maybe it was the socket itself that was itchy. Who can tell?? Sometimes at night I have to push the sheets to the sides of my eyes because the little water perpetually oozing out is uncomfortable and really bugs me. Not to mention if I’ve been rubbing my eyes the skin is tender and the salt of the tears feels all burny. Boo hoo!
I send you and the Kosman clan a link to my latest eagle video this morning. I hope you like it, I haven’t really been able to get out because the few parts of days that have been blue sky I have had to work. the eagle baby is so big now. But I wouldn’t have been able to get many shots when it was smaller anyway, the platform is huge and sticks out so far its in the way of my camera until the eagle is big enough to start bouncing.
Yah, received the eagle link, but for some reason I forgot to press send last night before passing out. Sleep strange and fluctuating hours and just put the laptop next to me by my bed. Work until the last drop and hopefully the transition will be quick. Or meditate if not. Lot of times it’s running downloading or playing internet passive radio, but I am able to be acutely aware of it while sleeping, without slothing around like an elephant.
For allergies, get this thought. The big chemical/pharmaceutical companies have their super expensive and buried laboratories. In the are experimented in a broad range of uses. Sneak GMO among the people, in time cancer and all sorts of other strange ailments will explode, and the same kind company who brought us this raises its hand waiving, “Oh, we have a remedy for that, but it’s expensive!”. I can see GMO having an effect on pollen. The 1%, with all their resources, has ample and creative means to reduce the population and milk of us our last penny in the process. k
