Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number,
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you
Ye are many — they are few
The modern division of labor consists of a ruling class (top 1%) that control about 40% of all financial assets, a managerial class ( the top 2%-10%) who control about 35% of all assets, with the other 90% of the working masses dividing up the 25% that’s left.
The pyramid is organized by a complex and highly specialized division of labor, state run education, massive corporations, government bureaucracy, the judiciary, intelligence organizations, mediatic propaganda machines and mainstream religion. Those rare few that actually wake up and see the zombie world are quickly diagnosed by the DSM-5 and given anti-depressants.
There are two things everyone wants all the time, and one of them is money. Control of the money is the magic wand that rules the world. All the other religious, patriotic and historical paraphernalia are directly related to allowing the 1% to control the creation of money. Take that away, and they are nothing but media hacks.
The current era which began with the creation of the Federal Reserve and the involvement of the United States in WWI is coming to an end. The great mistake most “awake” people make is believing redemption is at hand while underestimating the ruling class. The masters of propaganda and finance and are much more in control then they will ever reveal through their own channels. Their imaginations are immense and their capacity to orchestrate drama has no limits. They are the voice of reason while the dissenters are “diagnosed” with a collection of ailments that quickly marginalize them.
When humans existed in small groups as hunter gatherers, societies were generally egalitarian and specialization of labor was limited. Since there were no full time enforcers, authority was relative and flexible as most tasks could be accomplished by most people; the groups “stickiness” was determined by the incremental benefits of the group. As society progressed and the groups became larger, labor specialization increased efficiencies, allowing for full time armed forces and propagandists. Elite rulers thrived off their capacity to control and made it very difficult for individuals to leave and make a go of it on their own.
Men gave up their freedom as soon as they began plowing to eat. The larger societies became, the more complex the control mechanisms of religion, slavery, standing armies and caste systems.
The main impulse of history has been for the 1% to maintain their power against the brave few intent on to replacing them. The key novelty of the information age is the extreme specialization and unprecedented technologies of control the elites have today. The modern citizen in an industrialized nation is more vulnerable then any other human in history. He relies on his masters for everything from food and shelter to education and entertainment. He is incapable of teaching his children, growing crops, entertaining himself, or, most importantly, thinking for himself. Modern man is the ultimate soulless slave.
A joint paper by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Bank of England

You can search that and read the pdf file, but basically it says they are going to take your money.
See, the FDIC has only about $30 billion to cover around $10 trillion or so in deposits. "Money" (and I am using this term lightly) will be taken to help prolong the inevitable collapse of the global ponzi scheme otherwise known as fractional reserve banking. This is only going to make things worse. Do you think big money is going to stay in the banking system? I think they will get it out, donchew?
Oh, the Securities and Exchange Commission proposed last week a new rule that would make it more difficult for investors to withdraw from money market investment funds “during times of financial distress,”
And, the SEC is mulling a proposal that would delay withdrawal requests from institutional investors (as opposed to individual investors) during financial crises.
The SEC voted 5-0 to advance additional reforms, which would require shares of some money-market funds to “float”instead of having a fixed value of $1 dollar per share. The proposal failed to gain support last year but has since won the backing of a panel of regulators that include Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.
Last one out is a rotten egg.
carry on humans
She gave me some and wrote about it in her diary....
It was bliss having his thrill drill slid inside me again; stuffing my ladytown with my fist just didn't get my smush mitten spattering like it used to. My cake hole was so full of love lollipop and magician's wax, the ectoplasm was weeping down my chin and onto my droopies. The unrelenting orgasms from his front bum thrusting my chamber of squelch made me come so hard, I began sweating like a blind lesbian in a fish shop. When he removed his cumtree from my turd cutter, he was pleasantly surprised to see a stink pickle staring back as him. He knew I couldn't wait to suck the hardened fudge nugget off his giggle stick. With his #$%$ plunger pounding deep into my gashtray, the sensation of his love lollipop smashing my cervix made me quiver like an epileptic at a Pink Floyd concert.
Operation "Gassed and Spurious"
A teenager selling coffee in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo was arrested by Islamist rebel fighters for insulting the Prophet Mohammed, beaten and then executed in front of his family, a watchdog group claims.
The boy, Mohammed Qatta, 14, reportedly refused to give a customer coffee, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported Sunday.
"Even if [Prophet] Mohammed comes back to life, I won't," the boy said, who was known by his nickname "Salmo."
Extremist rebels driving past in a black car overheard the comment, the opposition Aleppo Media Center said. Qatta was taken away by the fighters and later brought back, his head wrapped with his shirt and his body covered with marks from whipping.
The rebels then read out the boy's sentence - not in a Syrian accent, but in classical Arabic. They accused the boy of blasphemy and told the crowd - which included the boy's parents - that anyone who insulted the Prophet would suffer a similar fate.
Qatta was then shot in the mouth and neck. A graphic photo was released late Sunday of the dead boy clearly showing wounds that matched the reports.
i just cleared my schedule too. maybe john will help arm them with some of the $500,000 in sales tax he saved by docking his yacht in rhode island instead of massachusetts.
The larger the mob, the harder the test. In small areas, before small electorates, a first-rate man occasionally fights his way through, carrying even the mob with him by force of his personality. But when the field is nationwide, and the fight must be waged chiefly at second and third hand, and the force of personality cannot so readily make itself felt, then all the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre—the man who can most easily adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
I am so glad obama is thinking about what I "should" do, and how i should "feel" about doing it.
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion."
~Henry David Thoreau, American author, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, historian, and leading transcendentalist. He is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay Civil Disobedience, an argument for individual resistance to civil government in moral opposition to an unjust state.
then you don't think.
Rice served in the Clinton administration in various capacities: at the National Security Council (NSC) from 1993 to 1997; as director for international organizations and peacekeeping from 1993 to 1995 and as special assistant to the president and senior director for African affairs from 1995 to 1997.
At the time of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide, Rice reportedly said, "If we use the word 'genocide' and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November [congressional] election?" Rice subsequently acknowledged the mistakes made at the time and felt that a debt needed repaying. The inability or failure of the Clinton administration to do anything about the genocide would inform her later views on possible military interventions. She would later say of the experience: "I swore to myself that if I ever faced such a crisis again, I would come down on the side of dramatic action, going down in flames if that was required."
