At a time when Florida's Governor decides to take on Trump and the Republican party's choice for President, we should remember what Charlie Christ said during the only debate in Florida's governor's race last year. True to form Christ was right all along. And when the NAACP announces that African American's are openly discriminated against here in Florida just adds salt to the already wounded social ills that are imbedded in the Republican mindset of so many not only in Florida but around the country.
The Paradox That Is America
America. what does this nation stand for? Too many of us are being led to believe that the United States is the greatest country in the world. Well, we used to be. Some time ago we gave it up for corporate greed and political power for a few elites. When we look at the political landscape of today there relay isn't that much difference between our two-party system. And when it takes millions of dollars to get elected for a job that only pays so little by today's standards spell corruption in every level of government.
A Turning Point For America
There has been a lot of controversy concerning the validity of implementing rent controls especially in light of the continuing rate increases in housing and a housing crisis in general. When the Fed continues to rase interest rates it does nothing to ease the affordability of home ownership and for that matter inflation. The argument stems from the fact that there is a housing shortage. That is true in some parts. But the housing market has always been driven by what is called supply and demand. When the supply of housing is not sufficient to handle a population the price of housing has always driven up the cost of either renting or owning.
Only A State Of Mind
In a world marked by confusion, discord, ignorance, hate and greed too many are caught in a tailspin where there is no black or white only the gray area in-between. The sociological impact of all this has transformed our society. A society today made up where many individuals phycological makeup goes against the laws of nature. And at the same time our society seems to be completely incapable of preventing the willful carnage that keeps happening in and around our nation. The connectivity is quite apparent considering the recent atrocity in Nashville.
A Day In The Life Of Man
The abominable travesties that are playing out on the world stage are a direct cause of the way societies have shifted. Shifted away from the decorum that prevailed even in the darkest hour of man during World War II. Many can relate this shift to progress. And yet too many are facing unprecedented suffering at the hands of governmental intrusions that are causing so much misery all around the world. The perpetrators of calamity have set the world ablaze. The tempests mankind is facing are a direct cause of the insatiable appetite for power, control and wealth.
The Last Faberge's: The Final Crusade
In the annals of history there have been great deeds done by virtuous men. But too many times the good that was done is violently obliterated by villainous acts perpetrated by evil intentions of those who thirst for power, control and wealth. It has been over 700 years since the fall of the Knights Templars and yet the diabolical and treacherous way that doomed the Templars has had far reaching consequences that have managed to survive. And so began the most diabolical plot for global domination in the history of man.
War, What Is It Good For?
At the height of the Viet Nam era Edwin Star put out the now forgotten song "War What Is It Good For" and the lyrics follows saying " absolutely nothing:" It is quite apparent that nations still resort to armed conflict when disputes arise either domestically or internationally. We have to go even further back when General MacArthur quoted at the signing of the peace agreement with Japan following World War II when he said, "If nations can't find peaceful means to solve disputes Armageddon will be on our doorstep."
It was a cool autumn day and for Henry Hughes the day started out auspiciously enough. But all that was about to change. Henry now scratching his already graying hair began remembering what he was supposed to do today. Last night the reception for Prince Alexander was the event that all New Yorkers had been anticipating. Then of course there was Regina, a Egyptian delegate, a most sultry women whose flowing emerald gown seemed to draw the attention of most of the men. The way she wore that dress was like a magnate that would hypnotize any man who was close enough to fall for her charms. Henry, though could not be seduced. Not on that night. As an undercover operative for the secret service where only the President and the Chief of Staff knew of his assignment the balance of world power was at stake. At the reception Henry had made arrangements with Count Drackol to meet at the top of Freedom Tower around 10 this morning. Count Drackol whose real identity was a KBG agent sent on behave of President Putin where the two would collaborate to ensure that the balance of power would remain stable after the escalating insurgency of ISIS in Syria which had spread through Turkey and now is on Israel's front door.
Inflation, that word conjures up dread for millions all over the world. But what causes inflation? Many think it is caused by supply and demand. Well, that is part of it. The real culprit has always been the Federal Reserve and the financial institutions especially here in the US. The banking industry ever since the Rothschild's founded the Bank of England have always been profit motivated seeking as many ways as possible to steal people's money.
It is a sad commentary in this day and age that our government has managed to immerse itself in foreign policy directives that continue to provoke responses that are capable of unleashing an unspeakable terror. With our support in Ukraine, we have failed to understand what caused Russia to use military responses to eliminate a growing threat to their homeland. The continued escalation of military force by both Ukraine and Russia has opened up a Pandora's box of contingencies that could have global consequences. By our involvement with supplying billions of taxpayer dollars and military equipment to Ukraine has fueled the flames of more hostilities. What we should have done when Russia was contemplating the use of military intervention in Ukraine wasn't even considered. Instead of being a mediator in negotiations that would produce an acceptable agreement to which both Ukraine and Russia would abide by we fueled the flames of calamity.
The Vindication of Andrew Jackson
In all of the history of the United States the only President to eliminate the national debt was Andrew Jackson. No other President since has been able to reign in government spending the way that Andrew Jackson did. Lincoln and Kennedy tried but both were assassinated before their policies actually made an impact on reducing sufficiently the nation's debt. More nearly than any of his predecessors, Andrew Jackson was the one that was elected by popular vote. In as such, President Jackson sought to act as the direct representative of the common man much to the chagrin of the entrenched powers that be at the time in Washington. Sounding all too familiar to today's realm of reality in D.C. Where entrenched elected officials reign supreme over a bewildered and suffering public.
The Ultimate Conspiracy
Through-out the ages there have been catastrophic plagues, pandemics, and diseases that have decimated whole populations. Going back to the Middle Ages the scourge of mankind was the Black Death, the Bubonic Plague that ravished Europe wiping out more than two thirds of the population, killing untold millions. In the 20th century there was the Spanish Influenza pandemic right before the end of World War I that again killed millions worldwide. We would be wise to remember that the Nazi's from 1939-1945 carried out the most ruthless genocide on mankind in the 20th century. An ethnic extermination unprecedented in modern times. In 2009 the Swine Flu pandemic was an occurrence that signals that the threat of another pandemic is as real as it gets. Sadly, we ignored it. And yet, there are those who today hide behind cloaks of deception willfully aware of their diabolical intentions that cannot wait for another pandemic to strike. And it did. Now, to uncover a more sinister more deceitful but just as ruthless as the Nazi's all in the name of global population control. So sinister, so deceptive we the unsuspecting population have been oblivious to the greatest conspiracy of them all.
