Thrity three years ago today

Nixon ended the Gold Standard, and today, I read this interesting piece of information.

More on FedLine Advantage can be found here.

By the by, both Nixon's act was a betrayal to his oath of office. The best example to prove this is that what took $100.00 dollars in 1971, now takes $468.40. You can find the proof here, which is the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics tool called the Inflation Calculator. To put the above figures in context, in 1913 when the Federal Reserve Corporation was created, it took fifty-eight years for that figure of inflation to reach $100.00/$409.09. That same level of inflation (actually the figure was $411.36) was reached in 1999, only twenty-eight years later. To put succinctly, inflation is a hidden tax.

And, if the private corporation intentionally misnamed the Federal Reserve predicts that it's new web-based system is safe, just remember how "well" it does with the economy.

Of course it does.

Lock 'em up and throw away the Webcam

"Exposure to millions of complete strangers, not to mention friends, loved ones, co-workers and employers, as one is booked, fingerprinted, and generally processed as an arrestee, and as one sits, stands, or lies in a holding cell, constitutes a level of humiliation that almost anyone would regard as profoundly undesirable," Paez wrote.

No shit Sherlock!

But then again, what do you expect from a judge and court that believes it is there to make law instead of abiding by thier sworn constitutional oath.

I do have this question though, just when did shaming become something society no longer practices?


As is want to happen to 'Dilla's in Texas...

You go up and you go down, and become roadkill.

Five weeks, John? I hope this isn't Doom III time.

Best wishes though.


Hmm, Mrs. Paranoid is thinking about remodeling...

UK scientists roll out Wi-Fi proof wallpaper

By Tony Smith
Published Thursday 12th August 2004 10:01 GMT

British boffins have developed wallpaper that blocks Wi-Fi traffic but still allows other wireless transmissions to pass through in a bid to prevent unauthorised access to sensitive data via the WLAN.

Developed by UK defence company BAE Systems, the wallpaper uses Frequency Selective Surface (FSS) sheeting, a material more commonly found slapped on military aircraft, naval vessels and radar antennae, New Scientist reports.

In this case, the FSS material is manufactured to absorb signals in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands used by 802.11a, b and g equipment. Other frequencies, such as the 1800MHz band used by GSM networks, are not blocked.

And what have many folks been saying for years?

It seems, we Americans have to find out what our government finally admits elsewhere:

America admits drug war has failed

New cartels keep surfacing, but US drug czar insists the cocaine supply will fall within a year

MEXICO CITY - The US drugs czar has admitted that Washington's anti-narcotics policy in Latin America has so far failed.

Mr. John Walters, who heads the US Office of National Drug Control Policy, acknowledged that billions of dollars of investment over many years have failed to dent the flow of Latin American cocaine onto US streets, but he predicted progress would be seen soon.

Sure it will Johnny Boy, and the sun will rise in the West tomorrow!


The following link also in from Mr. Sharkey

I don't turn or brake for squirrels, do you?

"The Kennedy itself was unscathed, but two jet fighters on the deck were damaged when one slid into the other as the carrier made a hard turn to avoid the dhow, several Navy officials said."

Besides, I thought this was always taught in drivers ed class...


And, speaking of Technocrats...

And this just in from Mr. Sharkey:

"In fact, a little over a year earlier in the month of February, 1943 the German military and civilian populace witnessed the disastrous events unfolding on the Russian Front. With the loss of the city of Stalingrad to the Soviet forces those individuals inside Germany with any insight at all could see very well what the inevitable outcome would be. As a result of these German military losses the several Nazi-Opposition groups, already in place within Germany since 1939, now began to increase their activity. These particular individuals and organizations firmly believed that Hitler's plans of domination were a direct threat to their country's best interests. The groups incorporated many of the German social and political elite who had actually assisted Hitler's Fascist machine in the first place, most notably Germany's "Technocrats" of political leaders, industrialists, bankers and highly placed military officers. By February of 1943 these opportunists became increasingly disillusioned with the Hitlerite agendas and commenced making their own arrangements for their post-war futures, both as individuals and as corporate entities."

Rats always do flee a sinking ship, no matter where, how, or who they are.


Yes, I do, and it is knavery and thievery of the most wicked type!

From WIRED Magazine's site:

Do You See a Pattern Here?

An open letter to the wizards of Wall Street from Benoît Mandelbrot, father of the fractal.

By any measure, the late 1990s was a time of extraordinary growth and prosperity in much of the world - and yet, the global financial system still managed to lurch through six crises: Mexico in 1995; Thailand, Indonesia, and South Korea in 1997 and 1998; Russia in 1998; and Brazil from 1998 to 1999. The Indonesian crisis was especially severe: The country's quarterly real GDP plummeted 18.9 percent, and its currency fell into a hole 526 percent deep. Each of these upheavals spread to most parts of the globe, destabilizing currencies, knocking gaping holes in bank balance sheets and, in many cases, causing a wave of bankruptcies. The fact that each country recovered and the global economy roared on again is testament not to good financial management but to good luck.

In this "open letter" (actually an excerpt from a book he and Richard L. Hudson are selling), he starts out with some hard facts, but of course calls for one that encompasses just more risk models for governments, banks and regulators, "...one that takes into account long-term dependency, or the tendency of bad news to come in waves."

One salient fact that is mentioned in this "open letter" is the New Basel Capital Accord, and a very telling slide show about it can be found here.

The book is entitled, "The (Mis)Behavior of Markets" and can be found here or at other booksellers found in the previous link.

My Cat, My Wife, and I have to Groan

I have a cat and I have a wife, and early this morning just after we awoke, the cat, my wife, and I, had one of life’s little moments.

The cat just had kittens, and is not paying as much attention to these babies as she has to her past litters, and in fact, the cat wants my attention- more so than usual, and constantly.

My wife commented upon this when I was telling the cat to go and feed her kittens and leave me be.

"She is not real attentive to this litter, is she? She must have post-partum depression."

I stopped, shook my head and said: "Wife, she is a cat- not a woman, and does not have human emotions."

My wife then just looked at me, smiled the tolerant wife smile, and walked away.

Yes, that was the way I wanted to start my morning…

Oh, let us be hosed just like the Europeans...




A domestic centerpiece of the Bush/GOP agenda for a second Bush term is getting rid of the Internal Revenue Service, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

The Speaker of the House will push for replacing the nation's current tax system with a national sales tax or a value added tax, Hill sources tell DRUDGE.

"People ask me if I'm really calling for the elimination of the IRS, and I say I think that's a great thing to do for future generations of Americans," Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert explains in his new book, to be released on Wednesday.

"Pushing reform legislation will be difficult. Change of any sort seldom comes easy. But these changes are critical to our economic vitality and our economic security abroad," Hastert declares in SPEAKER: LESSONS FROM FORTY YEARS IN COACHING AND POLITICS.

"If you own property, stock, or, say, one hundred acres of farmland and tax time is approaching, you don't want to make a mistake, so you're almost obliged to go to a certified public accountant, tax preparer, or tax attorney to help you file a correct return. That costs a lot of money. Now multiply the amount you have to pay by the total number of people who are in the same boat. You can't. No one can because precise numbers don't exist. But we can stipulate that we're talking about a huge amount. Now consider that a flat tax, national sales tax, or VAT would not only eliminate the need to do this, it could also eliminate the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) itself and make the process of paying taxes much easier."

"By adopting a VAT, sales tax, or some other alternative, we could begin to change productivity. If you can do that, you can change gross national product and start growing the economy. You could double the economy over the next fifteen years. All of a sudden, the problem of what future generations owe in Social Security and Medicare won't be so daunting anymore. The answer is to grow the economy, and the key to doing that is making sure we have a tax system that attracts capital and builds incentives to keep it here instead of forcing it out to other nations."



If anyone falls for this crap, well they deserve to be stolen from as the march of thievery moves forward!

History's banking lessons for today

By Marilyn Barnewall
© 2004 Business Reform

"The Honorable Louis T. McFadden, Congressman from Pennsylvania, leveled charges at the Federal Reserve Board on the floor of Congress that would have made the most aggressive conspiracy theorist blush.

McFadden accused the Federal Reserve of swindling the U.S. Treasury, of conspiring with their foreign principals (central banks in other nations) and others to defraud the American government.

As if that were not enough, McFadden further told his compatriots on the House floor that the Fed had robbed the U.S. government and the people of the United States by their theft and sale of the gold reserves of the U.S.?

Not to add fuel to this fire, but a lot of Americans today question how many ounces of gold reside in Fort Knox now versus pre-Federal Reserve."


And the answer is?
