I read a quote earlier in the week about Fukushima fallout in the US, which said, “Depleted uranium (DU), by the hundreds of tons, has been spread around the world from US military weapons systems. What goes around, comes around.”
That phrase has stuck in my head all week and reminded me of the ancient concept of karma. That’s one of the reasons you should be nice to people, and, well, because it’s just the right thing to do.
As I’m writing this article I am watching events unfold in Chicago on Ustream. So far it isn’t pretty, and daylight brings the big day of the Chicago NATO Summit, the much anticipated May 20th.
There are also Russians doing drills in Denver, a G8 meeting at Camp David, a “Ring of Fire” annular eclipse, and a nasty prediction by Nostradamus of a world-wide earthquake to contend with today. Not to mention some fairly sizable earthquakes happening in Japan again.
But the traitorous Department of Homeland Security has other concerns, which, unsurprisingly, includes spying on the American people.
Last week I talked about citizen scientist, citizen journalists, and Fukushima experts. Normal, everyday people who got interested in something that they see is unbalanced, unjust, and downright scary, after which they stepped in to fill the gap.
Now most of us already know about what some are calling “the red flag words.” But there are many that are just getting wind of this situation. And now they are asking questions, doing research and spreading the word about Fukushima as well. So you should probably be told what “the red flag words” are.
Come with me through the streets of Athens, not far from Syntagma Square, and your mind will reel with the horrified realisation that history is not a one-way ratchet, that human progress is not guaranteed, and that a proud country can be reduced – by years of torture and bullying – to a state verging on total political, economic and moral collapse.

Taxation is theft.
There is no denying this. If I and a few brutes appeared at the door of an unsuspecting individual and demanded monetary compensation less we drag him off to jail, this would be a clear cut case of robbery. It is a common tactic used by mobs or street gangs to offer protection with the barrel of a gun. The only difference between shakedowns by private thugs and those employed by the state is the badge. The badge legalizes extortion and imprisonment.
With that being said, it has been three years since the financial crisis and governments around the world are still reeling in the lesser Depression. Tax collections are down while public expenditures have skyrocketed in a vain effort to stabilize the economy. Much of this mass orgy in spending has been financed by central banks printing money and the suppression of interest rates down to artificially low levels. This is the Keynesian remedy to recession. Spend what you don’t have via the printing press. Have central bankers create paradise on Earth through counterfeiting.
So far it hasn’t worked.
