A BRUISED EGO CAN BE A GOOD THING « The Burning Platform

Maybe, the Scots will secede from UK, and the yuan will replace the pound. Then there's this,

The UK wouldn't mind poking a finger in the eye of the US. WWII is ancient history for most, and US hegemony is being weakened.



I still like our chances better than most. IOW, is there any other country where you would rather live?



That being said, is there anything the average person can do to change the present course of international monetary exchange, other than being along for the ride? Then, why should the average person care?



How is the FOREX going to change the level of wealth and income inequality that is the current source of pervasive global social malaise?



It won't, so who gives a shit? Even though I agree with T4C's conclusion, "They cannot afford to play without Us.", neither is this a game.

THIS IS YOUR RECOVERY AND THIS IS YOUR RECOVERY WITHOUT DRUGS « The Burning Platform

Admin, excellent article. Thanks for calling it the way you see it!



It's really only an academic or philosophical argument at this point whether there's going to be a collapse or whether QE really works. The only way it works if is the US creates a global hegemony, which isn't happening if the news reports are correct. I don't know how a stalemate impacts the status of the dollar as the world's reserve currency, but much depends on the production of energy. QE has certainly put the dollar at risk.



Reality is a bitch, and it remains to be seen whether the US can enforce it's economic might militarily. It's not looking too good right now, as we might be seeing the rise of the Ottoman Empire, which could act as an energy broker for the rest of the world. That isn't too far fetched given the Illuminati temples in Jerusalem, although the royal house of Saud may have something to say about it. Either way, if these militants stop accepting the USD for oil shipments, is it game over? I should say not, there's other oil and gas fields to exploit. It just isn't in the nature of the world system to yield in any respect or consideration.



We have a way to go before any systemic collapse. That's not to say there won't be a few shocks along the way. That which is unsustainable will be replaced by that which is. The central issue remains whether that which is will be based upon individual and collective freedom, or coercion through force by the implementation of a police state. We know which god is working where, and I know which one I choose. The alternative is unimaginable, for there is no end to the wickedness or evil thereof.



"In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God."



(2 Corinthians 4:4 ESV)

Billy could just as easily have written this article. So, let's review, black teen gets shot by white LEO. By all accounts, the officer could have retreated and called for backup, with an ensuing stand off. The teen wasn't armed and non-lethal measures could have been used to subdue him.



The entire neighborhood would have turned out for the standoff, and the mob could have ultimately turned on the police officers. Since TPTB don't want to start shooting the peasants, it's bad public relations, this officer has been trained it's easier to shoot one and avoid escalation.



Now the peasants have had enough, perhaps rightfully so, and they start peaceably assembling in their own neighborhood. The police have formed their own line to keep them there, and the stand off continues.



It wasn't a righteous shoot. You can't gun someone down because of an irrational fear for your own safety. Yes, the kid was stupid, but that isn't a capital crime, and the police aren't judge and jury. The officer didn't wait for backup and took it upon himself to take down someone who was physically intimidating, but the officers life wasn't in danger when he pulled the trigger. The only way this was justified, is if the kid was charging the officer at the time he was shot. Waiting for backup would have taken away the lethality of the assault. You can't shoot someone because you don't want to get your hands dirty.



So, the question remains, why didn't the officer call and wait for backup? We know the consequences, but why? Are the Ferguson police riding herd over the urban dwellers? Well, it is Missouri.



This officer insisted on getting out of his car, and now a black youth is dead. Either this young man's life is worth something, or it's not. If it's not, then we've already become what we fear, a Machiavellian Police State. If it does, then the officer should be charged with manslaughter and let the courts do their job. Since the path of least resistance for TPTB is to do nothing, that's what they'll do. The main concern for everyone from the local police up to the Governor's office is to keep their pensions, and wait for everything to return to normal.



The city council could engage police and community leaders to address the strong arm tactics being used against the urban dwellers in Ferguson, but we're past that point. The local prosecutor most likely wants to keep his job past the next election cycle, so he's going to do what his backers want him to do, which is nothing. Besides, it would set a bad precedence if prosecutors started prosecuting real crimes, or charging law enforcement for the consequences of using excessive force. Given the overwhelming number of reports in the news of police using excessive force, perhaps this is exactly what is needed. The only difficulty is this requires TPTB to police themselves, which they have thus far been proven incapable of doing.



Who knows, I might peaceably demonstrate under similar circumstances, but I probably wouldn't do it in my own neighborhood. I would take it to the city council, and force them to cordon off city hall for every meeting for as long as it takes until the issue is addressed. It's not like these community activists have anything better to do than what for next month's EBT.



That's my 10,000 foot view with no other facts than the combat veteran who penned this post. When the US started fighting limited wars, it was only natural for them to bring this experience to bear on the domestic front. After all, that's what Barack Hussein Obama promised on the campaign trail, that's what he's doing, and it's the only thing our federal government knows how to do well, keep people moving around from reservation to reservation, relying on handouts. So much for the plantation.



Copfuks? The term police derives from the Latin and means "public order". The police are only doing their jobs. The root cause of the unrest is the establishment of a two tiered society of elites and the unwashed. Things have gotten quite desperate for those in the lower echelons of the social strata, and all the EBT cards and free stuff in the world can't restore a person's dignity.



It's probably too late for successive generations of welfare recipients. But it's not too late restore order, not on the streets, but in the board rooms, elected offices, and government at all levels. Or, maybe it is.



The protesters in Ferguson, Missouri aren't the problem. It's the killing of an unarmed teen by a police officer, only doing his job, that is the problem, and the use of excessive force.

Missouri Riots

Meh, you can't pin this on Obama, he's an underling. Each successive POTUS since and including Reagan has been progressively worse.



Tax and spend Liberals, with other people's money, have become borrow and spend fascists, with other people's freedom.



The riots in LA weren't confined to a few blocks in South Central, but spread up and down the west coast from San Diego to as far North as Portland, OR. Malcontents using the opportunity for mischief. The worst of it, though, was in LA, for sure.

ISRAEL KILLS FOR THE FUN OF IT « The Burning Platform

LL, the holy city of Jerusalem is the prize. There’s no way any nation state is going to let that one get away. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all claim it. Honestly, I think Islam is full of shit, because isn’t Mecca their holy site? Come to think of it, yep!



Anyway, Islam lost that fight 1,400 years ago when they were kicked out of Europe, and I’m pretty sure the Greeks did the same to Persia a thousand years earlier.



Once oil was discovered, Islam hasn’t been quite as successful at kicking out the West.



Z predicates his final solution on national sovereignty, yet fails to make a case that Palestine, not Israel, has a right to exist. How can any individual or body say one nation has a right to exist, and another doesn’t? Would establishment of a Palestinian state bring peace? I think not!



Z is on the losing side of a centuries old territorial dispute. I’m not saying Britain didn’t have ulterior motives in establishing the state of Israel, but they did, and it would take another world war, with Z being on the winning side, which hasn’t happened ever in the history of civilization, to undo it.



Do everyone a favor, Z, and go croak on a mushroom. Does your employer know you’re a shrum head, possibly. How would I know that, Z? It wasn’t a little birdie.

Abraham Lincoln

I'm not even sure what is the point, a Southern militia flag and a quote from a war criminal.



Lincoln gained prominence as a lobbyist for the railroad industry, kicking people off their land during the western expansion. His support of the abolitionist movement was only to foster a divisive issue between the states and hurt the South economically, much like the feds are doing today with race relations, aka Zimmerman, a test case to incite racial tension.



The federal government has been a thorn and a prick in the side of individual freedom since it's inception. I'm beginning to think of the founders as war criminals themselves. Behind the politicians are the bankers, and it's the federal reserve act of 1913 which should be repealed and the bankers kicked out, as Jackson accomplished and Lincoln intended before he was assassinated at the start of his second term, and one of the reasons Kennedy was assassinated.



I'll stop there, but suffice it to say the fate of western civilization and indeed that of the world hangs in the balance.

HELL MOTHERF#@KING YEA!!!!! « The Burning Platform

We were on vacation at the other WB, Wrightsville Beach. I saw an RC quad copter my first day there, being run by a videographer, or at least, that’s what he said after I figured out it wasn’t a kite.



The annoying thing was the helicopter runs being done out of the AFB near Camp Lejeune, 60 miles to the north. One of them actually harassed a 60′ fishing yacht by flying directly over it, then turning on it’s side to peer down directly onto the fishing deck.



The most annoying thing was the 4 engine DHS speed boat that cruised through the 4th of July celebration at Masonboro Island a few times, with obviously the most expensive boat there, or close to it. The kids were waving, and a few stupid parents. Everyone else was wearing a WTF expression. I suggested throwing glass objects at them and they would get the idea pretty quick. No one seconded the motion.



I consider it all harassment. I can’t wait for their party to end, and we take these fascists down. Patrick Henry said it best, and I won’t to any relocation camp peacefully. Or, I could be wrong and they come in peace. Yeah, right!



BTW, I didn’t see ANY fat ugly chicks at the southern WB. PLEASE KEEP THEM UP THERE!
