Banking 101 – Part I: Think it’s “your” money?
You use a bank account and what everyone calls “money” every single day. Now I don’t care if you are 25 years old or 85 years old; the question is this: “have you ever read your contract with your bank?” If you have never read the agreement; then how do you know your rights and how do you protect your resources?
Earthships – Get off the Grid, and Stay Off
You’d figure that in the “most technologically advanced civilization in the history of mankind” we’d figure out how to solve the problem of living. I’m not talking about existing from day to day and meal to meal, I’m talking about actually living. It would appear that either our claim to technology, or our application thereof is broken. Take the cars we drive, for instance. We thrill at the prospect of a 30 MPG automobile, when in the late 80’s the Geo Metro was getting 50+
The Infamous Padelford Case – Get Your Copy
Frequently on this site, we’ll refer to the “Padelford” case, or more properly, Padelford, Fay & Company Vs. The Mayor and Alderman of the City of Savannah, Ga ( 14 Ga. 438). If you don’t have a copy, you might get lost when we make a reference to it. Never fear. We are here to help.
United States–the East India Company Endeavor
Now since this posting is under the category of Corporate Rabbit Hole, you might think that I’m going to start discussing or attacking your job and the company you work for….and believe me, I will get to that topic soon enough because the Corporate Dream has turned into a nightmare of disloyalty, nepotism, and the constant insecurity of replacements, mergers, take-overs, and layoffs.
Dragnets – Into the Rabbit Hole….Again
Recently I received an email touting a Radio Program called TAKE NO PRISONERS with the latest and greatest of Patriot False Hopes and Myths. This radio show took place on a network called the REPUBLIC BROADCASTING NETWORK. With a names like this, I was expecting Caesar himself to show up (although what I listened to was not live, but an archive file from a website.)
Give Up All Hope?
nce I ask the question, I will see that person go into a deep trance; because they now have no answer…because they have never considered the possibility. Now, this once apparently coherent, but now deeply entranced individual will continue to stammer and drone on and on about the constitution yada, yada, yada. What they fail to understand and/or want to grasp is that there is an entire system out there that is not what they think.
Too Bad Your Dentist Isn’t a Toxicoligist
You can believe what you will about Fluoride, but the facts do not, nor will they ever, bear out a “pro-fluoride” stance. What’s funny about fluoride is, it has a history. The history of fluoride reads much like the history of aspartame. Nazis use it or something like it to pacify or kill concentration camp inmates, and governments of the world say, “Hey, that’s a good idea.” As horrible as the camps were, some amazing science came out of the immorality and human evil of those days (I guess Nietzsche was right about one thing after all).
The Symbol of Greed and Profit – Part II
Aesculapius was a fairly important figure in the Greek pantheon. He was the son of Apollo and Coronis (a nymph), and was taught healing by Chiron, the centaur, when he was young. He got so good at healing, he was able to restore life to the dead. His symbol was and remains a single snake, entwined around a eucalyptus branch. Seems fitting that his symbol should become that of the medical profession, doesn’t it?
The Symbol of Greed and Profit – Part I
In ongoing research I’m doing, I stumbled across a few interesting facts that I will share in this two part series. For those of you who may not be aware, I’m a huge natural health proponent. I think that modern medicine has its place and that place is in trauma. Trauma surgeons can patch people back together following a car accident or insurgent attack better than ever, and with almost miraculous results.
Why Philosophy Matters
Philosophy is probably the single most important thing you can understand. It’s what brought you here in the first place. Admit it, you want to read this stuff because something about the way the world works doesn’t sit right with you. You were taught to be good, and polite, to not hurt people and to help when you could, not to lie, not to cheat and not to steal.
