Pardon a turkey and send more kids to die




Traditions of the White House continue.....





North Carolina farmers send off turkey to be "pardoned" by President Obama.





President Barack Obama will address the nation on his new strategy for the war in Afghanistan Tuesday night from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

Military officials expect the president will deploy about 35,000, starting next year.

The president says the American people will support his strategy once they understand the perils of losing the war.



Have a nice Thanksgiving folks. For some who will follow their orders as pawns of empire, it will be the last one they ever know.

  1. Whats your thought on the state of our economy being set up by our so called government? Reason why I ask is look at the recruiting problems in say 2003 -4. Now the military brags they hit their recruitment numbers very easily.
    You think Obama or any of those silver spooned politicians would want their kids to be in Afghanistan? Some things never change and thats duping the less fortunate ( for whatever reason) to be cannon fodder.

  2. Life, Survival Requires Thinking
    (Apollonian, 25 Nov 09)

    "Tee," ck my entry on previous blog, this site, 22 Nov 09, "ADL Revels...." WHEN U CONTROL MONEY SUPPLY U CONTROL EVERYTHING--THAT MEANS EVERYTHING--that's E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G.

    US Federal Reserve Bank (Fed) is literally a COUNTERFEIT machine/mechanism/operation/racket, so they have nearly INFINITE supply of funds by which to bribe, extort, and/or kill practically anyone/everyone.

    Most excellent expo/ref. can be found at RealityZone.com and TheMoneyMasters.com.

    CONCLUSION: Poor, stupid people, presently over-populated must die--as they can't and won't UNDERSTAND this simple info about COUNTERFEITING. Start thinking--to save ur very life. Take good care. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian

  5. Another 30,00 or so American kids tossed into the meat grinder.

    Add in another 20,000 or so heavily armed, itchy triggger finger mercs and things will definitely start getting lively.

    Look for the dead man, Bin Laden, to make an appearance shortly.

    Bailed-Out AIG Forcing Poor to Choose Between Running Water and Food

    Middlesboro and Clinton are two tiny, impoverished towns in southern Kentucky with a combined population of 12,000. In 2008, Middlesboro's per capita income was $13,189 a year, only a few hundred dollars more than the average worker earned in third-world Mexico. That is if they were lucky to even get a job. Real unemployment hovers somewhere around 30%, and the state is so broke that half the people eligible for unemployment benefits can't receive them. Life may be tough and most people live in poverty, but that doesn't mean they can't be made a little poorer. That's the lesson locals learned after bailed-out insurance villain AIG took over their water utility and instantly raised rates to squeeze an extra $1 million in profits out of its new customers, forcing some to consider choosing between running water and food.

    The towns are so rural, their residents have yet to be touched by the Internet revolution. Forget comment sections or forum threads. In Clinton, you have to track down actual hand-written notes that residents filed with city hall to read their complaints about the rate increase. Luckily, city officials were nice enough to scan some of them.

    Here's one, dated August 8, 2009:

    My husband and I are on a fixed income and with everything going up in price this would be very a very large burden on us as well as most of the citizens of Clinton. Our town is mostly of people like us and this would be such a hardship for us. A 50.8% raise is outrageous on anything. Please do not let this happen. It would mean the difference in bringing buying food and medicine or paying a high water bill to make someone else's life easier.

    Here is how the AIG takeover went down: In 2005, flush with cash from its shady dealings in the mortgage derivatives market, AIG announced that it was in the process of acquiring Utilities Inc., a holding company that controlled scores of small water utilities across 17 different states. With just 300,000 customers, the company wasn't huge, but it boasted of being the largest privately held water utility in the country.

    AIG had reason to be pleased with its purchase. Water utilities are one hell of a profitable business, with international corporations easily making a 20 to 30% profit margin, according to a 2007 report by Food and Water Watch. In the US, federal regulations limit profits to 10%, a pesky rule that companies easily subvert by shuffling their income around and “investing” it in side businesses. These kinds of returns would be the envy of the pharmaceutical and oil industries. How do water companies do it? According to Food and Water Watch, they charge 50% more for services than public utilities and pocket the difference, thereby unleashing the potential of the free market....

  8. Those KY towns are not close but like the article says it may be a sign of things to come. It's sick and who is going to do anything about it?

    As an aside, out county got caught up in a Bank of America variable rate scam for basic loans for school expansion years ago and now those rates are increasing. How much of an effect here is not known as the questions haven't been answered but some other towns are going deep in the hole because of them. They didn't read the fine print and I can see how selling water utilities may be a way to cover the loans if the state investigators don't stop it.

  9. It's sick and who is going to do anything about it?

    I watched part of a PBS special on Appalachia. Part of it dealt with moonshiners and the feds.

    Sometimes, the locals would grab a 'revenuer' and tar and feather the clown.

    Other times, they'd grab one and hold his nose to a grindstone and grind it off.

    Guess they were trying to send a message.

    Our great-grandparents understood that freedom isn't free.
