April 17, 2012 Vilnius, Lithuania -by SIMON BLACK -In the terminal collapse of the Roman Empire, there was perhaps no greater burden to the average citizen than the extreme taxes they were forced to pay. The tax ‘reforms’ of Emperor Diocletian in the 3rd century were so rigid and unwavering that many people were driven to starvation and bankruptcy. The state went so far as to chase around widows and children to collect taxes owed. By the 4th century, the Roman economy and tax structure were so dismal that many farmers abandoned their lands in order to receive public entitlements. At this point, the imperial government was spending the majority of the funds it collected on either the military or public entitlements. For a time, according to historian Joseph Tainter, “those who lived off the treasury were more numerous than those paying into it.” Sound familiar?

"Improvise,Adapt, Overcome" America, the new and improved Al-Queda will soon be in a town near you, thanks to the Sharia protecting regime we have currently in power. My advice is to follow the USMC saying above and make our government want to restore the Bill of Rights and Constitution to American citizens. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/09/Second_Battle_of_Fallujah%2C_mosque_firefight_and_house_searches.ogv
By Jeffrey Fleishman, Los Angeles TimesApril 5, 2012, 3:40 p.m.- CAIRO — The men gathering outside the yellow mosque agreed: Adulterers should be stoned to death, the hands of thieves cut off. “But not now,” said Kareem Atta, waiting in a cool breeze for the sheik’s car to roll up next to the Koran sellers. “Sharia law must be gradually put into place so it doesn’t shock the system. You can’t cut people’s hands off if you first don’t give them financial justice.” The young students, engineers and laborers are followers of Hazem Salah abu Ismail, a lawyer and holy man whose poetic blend of populism and ultraconservative Salafi Islam has turned him into a leading presidential candidate. Posters with Ismail’s gray beard and boyish face seem to hang on every street and alley across this ancient city. Ismail is at once provocative and soothing, in a breath switching from genial to fiery. He has suggested revoking Egypt‘speace treaty with Israel and holds up Iran as an exemplar of defiance against the U.S. His hard-line rhetoric has nudged American officials closer to the more moderate Muslim Brotherhood, a sign of Washington’s scrambling to keep pace with the tremors of the “Arab Spring.”
Brandon Smith-http://www.alt-market.com/articles/670-understanding-the-slave-mentality In the initial stages of nearly every recorded tyranny, the saucer eyed dumbstruck masses exhibit astonishing and masterful skill when denying reality. The facts behind their dire circumstances and of their antagonistic government become a source of cynical psychological gameplay rather than a source of legitimate concern. Their desperate need to maintain their normalcy bias creates a memory and observation vacuum in which all that runs counter to their false assumptions and preconceptions disappears forever. It is as if they truly cannot see the color of the sky, or the boot on their face. The concrete world of truth becomes a dream, an illusion that can be heeded or completely ignored depending on one’s mood. For them, life is a constant struggle of dissociation, where the tangible is NOT welcome…

- by Patrice Lewis- Many years ago in college, I took a required psychology class. One day we were told by our professor we had to divvy ourselves up into two groups for a particular project. I don’t remember the nature of the project, but I am quite serious when I say it took us three class days to divide ourselves. Much of that time was spent discussing all the hidden hurt feelings and angst that come with being “chosen” into one group or another, reminiscent of the painful procedure of choosing sides for softball in gym class. After one day of this ridiculous procedure I happen to glance at the professor, who had been largely silent after guiding us into this divvying process. He was watching us carefully, noting our emotions. Suddenly it was crystal clear to me: The end result (two groups) wasn’t important. It was the process of dividing us that he found psychologically fascinating. So, naively, I pointed this out to the rest of the class: “Do you realize we’re being manipulated into endless discussions and painful emotions for what is, after all, a very simple procedure?” The class stared at me as though I were nuts. No one believed me – they were too busy reveling in their woes and insecurities. My comment was dismissed as the endless discussions of painful emotions continued for another two class sessions. I didn’t utter another word during those days because I don’t like being manipulated. Sure enough, after it was all over and the class had divided itself, the professor told us the two groups weren’t important; it was the process of dividing ourselves that was significant, and how did we all feel about it? Yadda yadda yadda … This fascinating little exercise in group psychology is now being played out on a national scale right before our very eyes. We are being deliberately manipulated to behave, speak and act in certain ways. By withholding critical information or by emphasizing biased viewpoints, we are being jerked around like marionettes on strings, dancing to a tune long ago established by forces beyond our comprehension. And those forces are dividing us as a nation. Make no mistake – the motto E pluribus unum – Out of many, one – is being superseded by a new motto: Ex unus, plures. Out of one, many. http://www.wnd.com/2012/03/treason-from-within/

Subject: Battle of Athens, Tenn. 1946- A True Story This is why our Second Amendment rights are sacred. Battle of Athens , Tenn. 1946- A True Story We may be losing the battle for honest elections with electronic voting machines and a dishonest government and our inability to learn from history and our mistakes. I hope this video goes viral because it should! Only 13.5 minutes long it should be a full length award winning motion picture. http://voxvocispublicus.homestead.com/Battle-of-Athens.html------------------------------ "Man will ultimately be governed by God or by tyrants."- Benjamin Franklin, ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Thank you Susan for sharing this. I hate to see our last great generation of men and women passing away. It seems that each generation our best, most honorable people go off to war and do not return and over time that slowly drains the gene pool until we are left with a few frogs ,tadpoles and alot of snakes splashing around in some slimey water. 2012 has turned into quite a swamp.
