Grandfather was a funny gentleman: A Polish immigrant after the American Dream of self-sufficiency. Whenever talks of politics would come up he would
place his hand over his pocket book, peek out the windows, and take a head count. He would then wink and whisper to the young ones that the magicians
were not smart enough to pick his pocket, steal his land, or sacrifice his family as pawns. Grown-ups thought he was a joker or just daft in the head
while his grandchildren thought he was goofy. Every story has many versions based on what people believe. Unfortunately, in his silly way, my
grandfather was not wrong.
My grandfather believed, it was the stock market crash creating an economic depression that allowed the pickpockets to form the ABC government
resulting in a loss of independence and a world war to get more women into the workforce for the pickpockets to rob from while creating the illusion
of independence. He believed that these moves were cleverly planned out and were not that different from the ideals of the socialist and communist
governments we were fighting against. Self-sufficiency was the American Dream but it has turned into something ugly. We gave it all up,
self-sufficiency and independence, for our dependency on government and corporations. Like it or not, we have become the dollar slaves.
My father, we thought to be even crazier than my grandfather, would get on his soapbox about self-sufficiency. He warned us of the evils of
politicians, credit, insurance, and corporations. This was back in the 1970 - 1980’s when the US was at its height and the cushy jobs were in one
of the four categories. I remember the reaction of my father when I received an unsolicited credit card offer in the mail.
Being self-sufficient was promoted as having to struggle too hard. Credit is easy and turns your head away from independence. My generation gave in
and now must pay the price for dependency.
What do we have today? Our independence has been robbed while we pay for the privilege of having an illusion of independence. Money is power and
today, money is the means for independence while credit is the illusion of independence. With everything else happening on the big stage of politics,
we are not paying attention to the tricks of the magicians. The “Too Big to Fail” financial institutes own our beliefs; the stock market owns our
paychecks; and the government owns us.
Those two lunatics were right after all. We allowed ourselves to become owned and willingly sacrificed our freedoms for the luxuries. We lived like
royalty for a spell with our big homes, college degrees, and fancy cars but we gave up our independence. We agreed to the policy of “don’t ask,
don’t tell” as long as we did not have to give up our luxuries.
Now that we are at the verge of change [a revolutionary new way of life] our attention is being misdirected. The government, recognizing the folly of
education, has been slowly “dumbing down” future generations. Why don’t our children want to go to work? Why don’t they want to go to
college? Why don’t they listen to us anymore?
We control our government by the proof of our actions. How does one man control millions? He doesn’t! We allow one man to dictate. The start of
this nation’s independence was tea being dumped into a Boston harbor. We now have oil being dumped into the Gulf. Different circumstances but we
can make the result the same. Our government has grown distant from its people. It is time to take charge and there is far more power in numbers
than there is in money. People always forget that when they are being mesmerized by an illusion.
Self-sufficiency is hard work. The question is, are we willing to give up dependency in order to be independent? I have little faith in the
dependent portions of our society because they are controllable. What of the rest of us? Are we to give up our independence for a few luxuries that
will eventually be taken from us? What we do now, our children will inherit.
Do not think for a minute that I am advocating violence. I am advocating using our intelligence. Use your power as a thinker to see through all
these illusions before it is too late and your life, as well as mine, has expired and our future generations that lack education will be up next. We
need to make changes now before it is too late.
Isn’t it funny how history repeats because people refuse to recognize the real mistakes? My favorite quote is the definition of insanity...doing
the same thing and thinking you will get different results. Maybe this time it isn't insane but just a government thing.
It is the masses that make things happen whether they buy into being controlled or not. Actions speak so clearly. And yes, for those who do noit
want to recognize what I have to say, I come form a long line of lunatics dating back to a relative supporting the overthrow of Hitler, a relative
supporting the overthrow of Russian's version of Hitler, and a relative supporting the over throw of England's version of Hitler. We now have our
own version of Hitler, the unfortunate thing is that we cannot yet identify him or her, but we will. Follow the new Arizona immigration law for
clues. Follow the lack of clean up in the gulf for clues. Follow the health laws for clues. It's all slight of hand with a big show to disguise
the real magic trick.
It is so sad that we applaud being duped, isn't it? But on the other hand, what a show, right?
