Manipulations and Destruction of Democracy

Dear M or Ms Nystrom (not knowing),
(Stay with me here.)
What a piece of work you are. Doom - Gloom - Dire - Endtimes are
most insufficient to describe your style.
To contemplate your writings is to sink into a funk outside of description.
AND I love and am energized by it. I'd love to label your stuff
as incredulous, but the facts lean as much toward your credibility
as against it. So much of it rings plausible as not.
For years now I've contemplated the emerging Earth Changes; Crashing
of the Dollar and it's Economy; The Emerging End of Life -- in this
country, as we knew it and now lately; the seeming Irrational King
at the helm.
It's only been in the past decade or so that I've really been paying
attention to the real (underlying) manipulations and destruction
of what used to be a democracy. I now see what has been emerging
over the past 4 decades. Just this morning I remarked to my wife
that I can't believe the cynical man I've become regarding all things
political and governmental.
By necessity I've become distrusting. Distrusting of our monetary,
judicial, govermental, and social systems. They are most visible
to those who are willing to look, and have been building to a great
crescendo in front of our very eyes. No longer up for debate, the
coming decline is in the hands of the Gods as to when the hammer
I've gnashed my teeth over how to counter the inevitable for my
own and my family's security, only to realize that there is little
to be done if the system in which I live is to come down around
On a recent trip north to Canada, I pulled off the highway north
of Syracuse to search for a gas station. About 4 miles down the
road I pulled into a tiny town (or so I thought) to get gas. Next
to the gas station was a McDonalds. Suddenly I became aware of military
people everywhere; scurrying here and there. When I looked around
it was like being in a parallel universe, seeing all things military,
with military housing everywhere I looked and all brand spankin'
F or some unknown reason I had an eerie feeling. As I got back on
the highway, it donned on me that this base was within spitt'n distance
of a major border crossing. No big deal there! So, why did I have
an overwhelming thought that these troops camped close by where
there NOT to keep terrorists out, but more to keep the US Citizens
in?! I still don't understand that rationale, except to say that
it was the dominant thought and continues to hold to this day. (seems
to fit right in with your scenario.)
Many say to buy gold, but what's the point if no one else has it
and sees that you do. You only become a target. I've considered
moving to the country to avoid the looting and shooting, with the
hopes of living more self sufficiently. But, who's to say one wouldn't
be vulnerable on just as significant a scale, with the poor rednecks
and hillbillies! Isn't that the greatest source for recruiting of
the militia?! There is also the isolation from the friends and neighbors
we now enjoy, and with whom we could band together in mutual support.
In these scenarios there are no safe financial havens. Greenbacks
will be well more worthless than they are today. So what, if you
invest in foreign (fiat) currencies, as they're just as destined
to go the way of the buck. Besides, they exist in Cyberspace and
will just as likely be lost & gone. Stocks & Bonds? Shoot,
I adandoned that crap-shoot years ago! Talk about manipulation.
All at once, after all these decades there's a so-called emergency
to fix Social Insecurity. Of course that problem wasn't visible
3-4 decades ago (he said, with all the sarcasm he could muster).
Those cowards are so deep in financial doo-doo, and so concerned
about their re-elections and own safety nets, that they won't lift
a finger to fix it even if they could!
Unfortunately we've long gone soft and lack the moral fortitude
to stand forth and do anything to regain what's been lost. I saw
on PBS the other night where there was a big push to save the documents
upon which our country was founded. What's the point? They've become
pieces of paper that are worth about as much as our fiat currency.
Much of what has been our guiding light has been amended into thin
I'm trying to find a way to end this that could be light and gay.
How 'bout this :
Ah don't smoke, take dope, tell jokes, jump rope.
Laugh, dance, sing, make fun of the pope.
Play raggidy kid games,
But, ah'm hell when ah'm well,
And I ain't been sick lately !
Sorry for lacking constructive thoughts, but I'm no deep thinker,
nor do I posses the necessary credentials to step up.
Keep the faith, I mean really; "Keep The Faith", for it
may be the best gig we got goin' for ourselves, for the other gig's
God Bless AmeriKa,
