Buffy the Vampire Slayer | Federal Reserve System | Vampires

I have been trying to figure out some people’s fascination with vampires. I do know that some girls love them even if they can suck them to death . . . or worse. And I have to admit that I don’t know the why yet. But I was reading in the headlines yesterday that the “Fed” is “doing all it can” to prevent a ‘double dip’? (apparently the economy is threatening to collapse again). And I couldn’t help but thinking: “Now, those are real vampires.”  They pretend to help you when in fact they are actually causing the problem and draining your blood. Isn’t that what vampires do? I wonder if Buffy the Vampire Slayer could take care of them. But I doubt it. It is going to take some effort on our part.

Identification Theft | Computoredge | Wally Wang | Apple

I found this article in Computoredge magazine about how to protect yourself against Internet fraud. It also has interesting information and misconceptions about apple computers. Here is a brief summary to help you decide if it may be of help:

“Simple precautions help you safely navigate the Internet without losing money to criminals. Also, people criticize Apple without first investigating the facts; InDesign now offers collaborative features; Bento is a deceptively simple yet flexible database program; and a tip on double-clicking on the title bar of a window you want to temporarily hide.”

Inception | Leonardo DiCaprio | Marion Cotillard

I went to see Inception, which was recommended to me by alywaibel.  Excellent movie! I liked how they changed ‘dreams’ — as Toltecs do in the ‘dreaming attention’, although you don’t need all that equipment to do that. What I liked best, however, was the end of the movie when Cobb after reuniting with his family spins his totem to make sure he is not ‘dreaming’ anymore. But we can’t see the outcome, which implies that perhaps life is but a ‘dream’. . .

Regard this fleeting world,

as a star at dawn, a bubble in a stream,

a flash of lightning in a summer cloud,

a flickering lamp, a phantom and a dream.

–Buddha’s Diamond Sutra

Random thought is a trap. Pay attention! It is a dream.

The dreamed dreams the dreamer.

The Federal Reserve System Scam | G Edward Griffin | Murray N. Rothbard

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post referring to the book by Edward Griffin, The Creature from Jekyll Island; A Second Look at the Federal Reserve. I have to admit that I haven’t read it in its entirety yet, but he has a summary at the end of each chapter that gives you a clear understanding of the problem that the Federal Reserves creates, how it does it, and why. It also explains how to proceed to solve the problem, and what can we do as individuals. Since this creature can bring the nation down, I decided to recommend it a second time. Everything is explained in a a way so simple that even someone like me, who is not well versed in these matters, can easily understand.

I also did some research and found the work of  Murray N. Rothbard, The Case Against the Fed. “The most powerful case against the American Central Bank ever written”

“Murray N. Rothbard, a scholar of extraordinary range, made major contributions to economics, history, political philosophy, and legal theory. He developed and extended the Austrian economics of Ludwig von Mises, in whose seminar he was a main participant for many years. He established himself as the principal Austrian theorist in the latter half of the twentieth century and applied Austrian analysis to historical topics such as the Great Depression of 1929 and the history of American banking.”

What Griffin has done then is make the Creature from Jekyll Island, (the monster), easy to understand. Recommended! Again! Important!

Carrol Quigley – the bankers’ plan

“The Power of financial capitalism had [a] far reaching plan, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.This system was to be controlled in a feudalistic fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences.

The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks, which were themselves private corporations.

Each central bank sought to dominate its government by its ability to control treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence co-operative politicians by subsequent rewards in the business world.”

Carrol Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, 1966 – [Bill Clinton’s mentor and Georgetown University professor]

Federal Reserve conspiracy

Jim Marrs, in his book Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy, speculated that the assassination of Kennedy might have been motivated by the issuance of Executive Order 11110.[47] This executive order enabled the Treasury to print silver certificates, bypassing the Federal Reserve System. Executive Order 11110 was not officially repealed until the Ronald Reagan Administration. Official explanations claim that the executive order was simply an attempt to drain the silver reserves, and did not actually endanger the careers of anyone working at the Federal Reserve.[48]

This theory was further explored by U.S. Marine sniper and veteran police officer Craig Roberts in the 1994 book, Kill Zone.[49] Roberts theorized that the Executive Order was the beginning of a plan by Kennedy whose ultimate goal was to permanently do away with the United States Federal Reserve, and that Kennedy was murdered by a cabal of international bankers determined to foil this plan.

Actor and author Richard Belzer has also discussed this theory. According to Belzer the plot to kill Kennedy was set in motion as a response to the President’s attempt to shift power away from the Federal Reserve and to the U.S Treasury Department.

Listen to the “speech that got President Kennedy killed” and tell me what you think. Your opinion counts. Thanks!

Tsunami of Music | World Music News Wire | From India to Indonesia

Tsunami of Music

From World Music News Wire:

“On a beach, a fisherman pours his heart into a love song for his wife, taken by the sea. A worn but beautiful woman, at first shy and retiring, sings an unexpectedly passionate welcome. A couple selling trinkets to sun-hungry tourists opens an arresting trove of traditional instruments and plays them with astounding zeal.

On the shores of great tragedy and destruction, the sounds and images of the Laya Project reveal an abundance of life-affirming music made by ordinary villagers, sounds from coastal communities affected by the 2004 tsunami in Sri Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia, the Maldives, India, and Myanmar (Burma). Recorded on site during impromptu sessions over the course of more than two years in dozens of overlooked areas, the interwoven songs and tunes that became the Project span national, ethnic, and religious boundaries and reflect a unifying triumph of human resilience and creativity.”

That it will never come again | Emily Dickinson

I was working today feeling tired and numb (Friday), and decided to stroll outside for a break. I found balm in the weather: a clear blue sky, buildings bathed in sunshine, shady trees and a cool breeze. I just stood there for a while, enjoying the moment.

An attractive lady was approaching  and I said hello. She answered and asked me how I was doing. Her smile was as bright as the sunshine, so I said, “Much better now that you are here”.  She thanked me and I mentioned the weather. She agreed as she sauntered away.

About half an hour later I came back out and there was a change. Same weather but not quite the same feeling —  due to the position of the sun perhaps. That moment will never come again, I thought. And I remembered Emily Dickinson’s poem:

That it will never come again

Is what makes life so sweet.

Believing what we don’t believe

Does not exhilarate.

That if it be, it be at best

An ablative estate —

This instigates an appetite

Precisely opposite.

Poets have a way of “seeing” life as it is. Don’t you think?

Emily Dickinson
