  • Attack/war on the usa my opinion

    I am typing in caps so 'i' can read what i am typing. This thread titled 'war on america' i think is as misunderstood as it was in vietnam (rvn).

    We have two separate battles going on at once against the rag-heads. One is the actual battles in the sandbox and the other is here in the usa. I think the one in the sand box will end not unlike it did for russia when they did it; afghanistan was 'their 12 year vietnam war'. The troops we have there should be pulled out and put to better use on our borders.

    Meanwhile back in conus the rag-heads are waging a war of attrition. Which has cost more? Troops in the middle east or the billions spent on terrorist activities here in the usa? Every time an airport is shutdown for any time the trickle down costs is amazing and most don't realize that.

    The rag-heads can't just open up on us here; guns blazing (en mass); so they wage a war of attrition or 'cost to us' and this happens in many ways. Every time a plane is stopped due to some weird threat; it costs us big bucks and if you look at the numbers of those incidents the bucks pile up. They know what they are doing. It happens almost every day. It happened just two days ago in two different major airports.

    They have been doing this for years and the cost is staggering. Granted; some have been captured only to be jailed and pending trial in a u.s. Court. When they should be tried in a military court at gitmo. They understand our laws and use them against us.

    The muslim religion is not moderate by any means; it is a draconian religion even within their own individual homes it is brutal.

    There are many cells here waiting to be activated and they will be sooner or later. What to expect? I would expect on a large scale activation that cells go for major infra structure. Examples would be major power grids, major bridges; dams and related targets of opportunity.

    Do they have to destroy these targets? No. All they have to do is render them un-usable for a very long time. How? Easy. A brief case full of c-4 impregnated with lots of aspirn sized tablets of cobalt-60.

    Just park the car on say the golden gate and detonate the c-4 and pellets. The explosion won't damage the bridge. It will destroy the car and driver but the cobalt - 60 will be reduced to dust and contaminate a wide area including the surrounding cities. The contamination will render the bridge unusable for a very long time since cobalt-60 has a very long half life.

    Why cobalt-60? It is extremely radioactive and very easy to obtain; it does not have to be smuggled into the country; it is available (largely unguarded) in most major to moderate sized cities. It is used for industrial x-ray of major structures looking for structural fatigue such as a bridge or stadium or a large building. You name it. It's that easy.

    They could do the same thing with the same method on the seaway from the gulf into houston or the hoover dam or the st. Law. Seaway into the great lakes. It is like the cliche goes; 'a target rich environment'.

    Then again there are other ways to wage their war of attrition. Like the proposed super mosque in nyc. Look at what that is costing us. Think about it. Itemize it like a detailed tax return. If allowed and they broke ground what would it do to wall street? Most of the buildings there around the twin towers are still un-repaired.

    If you think the last two major mkt. Fluxes in the mkt that neared a drop of 1,000 points is something wait until the rag heads get the go ahead for the super mosque.

    In many cases (outside of the obvious gunfights) much of the war in vietnam was a war of attrition. Things hanoi did to cost us there and in conus are similar to what is happening now.

    The difference between rvn and islam is we went to war against a country; not a religion; and this time we have gone to war against a religion with no country. In both cases the joint congress was not able to figure out how or what to declare war on.

    It's as vague as declaring war on drugs or declaring war on poverty, etc.

    It is ephemeral; not in the short lived sense but in the sense that one can't get a physical grasp on it. The rag heads know this. Make no mistake. Like sun-tzu said: 'know your enemy'. Clearly most americans do not.

    They believe that giving their lives for jihad will insure that they each receive 72 virgins and rivers of milk and honey. Now then....

    1.) i would find it hard to find 72 virgins on this planet today over the age of ten.
    2.) if there were rivers of milk and honey; my bee's would go nuts with happiness and i'd have a feral cat problem animal control couldn't fathom.
    3.) rag head math: There are right now about 7 to 8 billion people on this planet and one billion of them are rag heads. If one billion rag-heads think their sacrifice will bring them 72 virgins (not counting the milk and honey) that would mean we'd need at least 72 billion virgins which is much larger than the current population of planet earth.

    The majority of them can't read nor write; the majority of them are illiterate and receive their orders personally or via a television or some other media such as radio.

    Only a few are selected to be well educated and deployed to critical areas to lead the others.

    They are will funded; endless money from oil and heroin.
    We can trash the poppy fields but we can't plug their oil wells.

    We stop one leak and they find another. For instance syria is supposed to be neutral albeit muslim and somehow the terrorists are flying from the middle east/africa to syria then from damascus to northern south america. Why?

    They come in thru mexico of course and we have blocked most of their attempts (finally) to get here via amsterdam.

    What about iran? Well i suspect that sooner or later israel will nuke them with a sudden strike and get it over with just as they did in april/1967 where they took on syria, iraq and egypt all at the same time and it was over in six days.

    I remember that clearly; i was in rvn and put on a 12 hour stand-by to pack my bags and head for the sinani. Then it was over and back to quang ngai i went.

    I doubt that the current person in the oval office will see a second term or even get a distant view of one. Why would a person like him from a rich family spend those years in a predominately muslim country which still is muslim? Why is his name islamic? November/2010 will be really interesting.

    For most of you in your individual states you have seen over the years your share of political corruption; esp. In the recent year or so.

    My state of hawaii is no different. It is about as corrupt as it gets. In the late 60's and early 70's it was very corrupt and it still is (if you live here) and i have lived here for about 40 years now. I'm 63 years old and i have pretty much seen it all and hawaii is probably one of the top five most corrupt states to date. Ergo, (you know where this is going)...

    I don't care what tv says; a rich family can and does buy anything they want in this state including 'citizenship' and it would be or have been no real effort to alter records for a certain person born in kenya to suddenly be born in hawaii if you get my drift.

    The so called 'matriarch' of that family is deceased now so those secrets will never be revealed; just thought i would add that since many believe what is on paper is 'correct'.

    Some of you but i doubt many; saw in the past three days during the tv debates on the news over this nyc super mosque that some television shows were suddenly canceled because the shows in question were about to pay tribute to the lives lost on 9/11. And so it was done. However the powers that be could not stop all programming such as cnn or fox. But they did stop some programming and i saw it happen within less than 30 minutes notice. That rang my bell.

    There is a very real attack on america right now; it is a war of attrition in a time when we can't afford a dime to add to the deficit.

    How many of you know the difference between the 'deficit' and the 'national debt'? They are two different entities and while the majority of the citizens of this country do not understand the difference the rag heads do and they are working it like a nyc 'shell game' on a street corner. Where is the pea?

    I could go on and on with this diatribe but i think i will wait for some replies; if any.

    Well, there is a few more bits of info. The world of islam is for lack of a better word facist; not unlike hitler's movement bent on world domination. That was his goal and that is the goal of islam albeit hitler counted on the japanese invasion of manchuria in 1931 to take care of china while hitler dealt with europe.

    Their motives were not only based on their facist ideology but also on expansionism. The rag heads goal is world domination but it is not based upon expansionism but it is fundamentally facist in it's ideology. The difference being is one was motivated by expansionism while the other is controlled by a draconian religion and not the state.

      Attack on america

      Mahalo mr. Amtower for your reply. Interesting stats that appear to show about 103 views with only one reply.

      It is about 0612 hours hst (hawaii std. Time) and i received this morning an email from the president of pas; slick katz who rather chastised me for using a term to describe the islamic terrorists; i.e., the term 'r*g-h**d.

      I was a sort of shocked since i haven't posted on the notam board in years.

      He seemed to think some might find that term offensive. I don't. Your correct mr. Amtower this country needs a wake up and i mean as in 'yesterday'.

      You would not believe how many veterans i comm with via email who are 'not' members of pas who feel that the so called 'attack on america' is over and the bad guys have already won. Curiously every single one of these people whom i am referring to are all 'combat' vietnam veterans.

      This should scream volumes to most. I would have expected this from the political (non combatant) left in this country but not from combat veterans.

      I have several usmc friends whose kids are in the middle east; some on their third tours. My own have been in or near the sand box for the past few years. Before that they were out of japan playing with the guy with the bad hair cut in north korea.

      This country has, in the past taken a beating many times for being complacent.

      In my post i discussed the use of cobalt-60 as an easy weapon they could use because of it's irradiation and long half life. I know this stuff is easy to get. It is used in industrial radiation as i pointed out. This isotope is a by product of nuclear reactors (not always the type you see that produce energy); more like the type termed as 'breeder' facilities.

      Among other uses other than industrial irradiation to check for structural fatigue it is also used in large drive in buildings to irradiate produce and it is effective.

      The truck drives in; the driver gets out and leaves the building; then it is sealed and they remotely roll out a large lead box. Then by remote control it is opened and a single tablet the size of an aspirin is moved to expose the inside of the building with a high dose or radiation killing any organisms on the produce. Then it is returned to the box and sealed and the doors are opened and the driver gets in the truck and carries on.

      The irradiation does not contaminate the food; however if it were crushed to dust then it would contaminate everything. I once considered getting a license to use this material for industrial radiation. Too much paper work and more importantly too many larger companies with long standing municipal contracts made it rather un-cost effective.

      Which is to say that is how easy this stuff is to get. The 'nrc' will gladly send you a lot of nice colored brochures on this material along with photos of what happens if you make a mistake. Nrc (nuclear regulatory commission).

      The days of robert oppenheimer; while brilliant, are history. When i noted the 'bad guys' could easily manually detonate a so called 'gun-fired' nuke i was not kidding.

      Any college kid with a major in nuclear physics can fabricate one. Some think that is an urban myth. It is not.

      High energy radioactive materials like cobalt-60 if reduced to dust; produce first and foremost gamma irradiation. This is the same as bundled photon energy we get from the sun traveling at the speed of light. The secondary problem is particulate irradiation from alpha and beta particles.

      Does anyone know what hd-50/50 means? Also there is no such thing as a safe threshold dose of any form of radiation; none!!! 5,000 rads or more will kill you instantly. 3,000 rads will kill you in a week or so; and you will die very similar in the ways you've all read about of those who died from 'ebola'.

      Radiation is 'cumulative'. This goes for medical radiation as simple as a routine chest x-ray. The justification is that the risk is out weighed by the diagnostic value of the image via the exposure. I used to do about 5,000 films a year. I know what i am talking about.

      The guys in tehran know all about this stuff.

      This country does indeed need a wake up call.

      It's real; it's surprisingly simple and 99% of our population doesn't have a clue. My only solace is that i live in a remote area far from a target of opportunity and gamma radiation travels in a straight line; not the curve of the earth.

      As for my chastisement i remember vietnam very well, we referred to the vietcong or vc; as 'dinks' and other colorful terms like 'rice propelled bas*t**d's', etc. We were never censored for this.

          More on attack on america

          Short note here by my standards (you should see my email).

          I'm not certain what the rules & regs are for posting here given the use of language; although i do see a dramatic difference in what is 'allowed' here versus what we get in the pas magazine/newsletter. I'm confused. It must be my personal case of 'c.r.a.f.t.' and acronym that that needs translation if ya'll know what it means. For those who do not email me at: ferrell@alohabroadband.net. I will 'slain' it to the acronym that is somewhat graphic to those with sensibilities.

          I hope that ya'll were watching cnn yesterday and the day before where a guy approx. 22 years old enlisted in the army and after all that training at 'your expense' made it to the 101st airborne. A distinguished unit. You don't get there unless you go thru a lot of stuff. It's not exactly an option on your recruiter's enlistment promise.

          Never the less this guy as refused to deploy to the middle east because he is muslim and thinks it is illegal (per his religious beliefs) to kill other muslims.

          He knowingly took the pledge we all did and now that he is being deployed to the sand box is 'refusing' to go. It begs the question. 'why enlist in the first place and cost the usa all that training'?

          Muslims as i have stated will kill each other when they have no other to kill (namely we 'infidels') see history 101.

          Now the army is sitting on a hard spot trying to figure out what to do with this guy? He refused to go; not unlike the guy from hawaii who was not muslim. Then again we have to think of the so called muslim chaplain that waxed several people in ft. Hood, tx. (if i am correct and if not correct me on the locale).

          This newest guy well trained in the 101st airborne didn't get their by a recruiter's promise; that is impossible. He got there thru his own tenacity or hard work.

          One can not just enlist in the army and tell the recruiter i want to be in the 101st airborne. It doesn't work that way; you have to go thru lots of training (esp. With preliminary training) thru the 82nd airborne then and 'if' you pass that you may or may not be selected by the 101st for further training. So.... What do we have now?

          Well, we have a young guy with all the training who will more than likely be discharged with a dishonorable and knowing the current administration he will more than likely not do any brig time before discharge and will be cut loose on the streets.

          What you should be thinking about now is .... Whoa! *ph*uc*k otherwise known to me as my cantonese kitchen god for cooking.

          This guy is ripe for picking by al quaeda (spell it like you want just so it comes out as 'dangerous'). And you thought padillia was a problem?
          ********
          in my last post the ref. To hd/50/50 and i could be wrong on the 'hd' part due to 'c.r.a.f.t.' means or refers to a lethal dose of gamma radiation and particulates that would kill half of the exposed within a given time depending on the source and exposure; lots of variables n' stuff.
          ******
          this guy (mentioned above) is a time bomb per jihad waiting to go off. He just needs the control to tell him, how, when and where. Like the others before him.
          ******
          regarding other 'breaking news' i could go on and on but if you think; carter (today), clinton, jihad jane, hanoi jane and of course a guy named 'kerry' are confusing then your in the same rice paddy as me.

          It gets confusing. The big 'o' likes it that way; all rhetoric (talk) as in all 'talk and no cattle'.
          *********
          i will pray (if that is not a violation of pas posting regs), that americans will see thru the ruse and take the time to vote. If you do not vote you can't complain. If you vote and lose at least you tried. Samo-samo vietnam, 'comme il faut'?
          *********
          i was allowed to smoke (dod gave me free cigs) but could not have a beer or vote. Sucks huh? I never smoked until rvn then when it was free i got hooked by dod and now the va is telling me i must stop????? Why? My age? You'd think the va would encourage aging vets to smoke as much as they can afford to kill them selves so the va can write them off. I told this to the va recently and they hung up on me? Not sure why? I seem to offend lots of people wherever i go including this little opus and of course ace hardware. Another topic not for this thread.
          ********
          in the last week alone i have had about 20 people tell me i am rude. Imagine that? I feel somewhat perky.
          *******
          okay; enough of that stuff ( would have used a four letter word for 'stuff') but while the pas board will censor that word; ted turner; does not. Wierd? Actually i have a very good vocabulary. It's not needed much these days with generation 'what ever it is'? X? Y? Z?
          ********
          since my last post there have been a sunray of 'incidents' again the war of attrition. Does anyone keep track of this stuff like i do? If it were medical i would call it a virus that is spreading with no vaccine. Fairly simple concept.
          *******
          moreover it is not spreading like a flu virus which is perty nasty; but it is spreading on a more exponential level. Not sure how to explain that. Maybe like the difference between a an earthquake that is rated say a 3.5 on the scale vs: One that is rated a 4.0. The difference is staggering and most people think a 4.0 minus a 3.5 is just a .5 difference. Nothing could be further from the truth. I really don't have a clue as how to explain this.
          ******
          okay i'll give it a shot. I know most of you have heard the riddle: Which would you rather have? A million dollars or a penny that doubles everyday? Ans. Is the penny. It will dwarf the million bucks inside a month given all things normal which means it's iffy given the director of the federal reserve....(i'm on a roll... ) rumor has it that fed. Chair bernake (spelling) has thousands of tons of pennies somewhere in the bottom of a vast canyon. His ira/k-plan i guess?
          *******
          unless you were born yesterday; ya'll might remember the old revolutionary story of paul revere; where he said if one lamp was burning (lit) the british were coming and if two were lit they were not or vice versa i can't remember which due to 'c.r.a.ft.' and that is not the point. He had a warning system ready to go. It worked!!!!
          ******
          now we have all the technology in the world and some you can't imagine and these geeks can't tell us if, when or how the muslims are coming; but at least we know like paul revere that sooner or later; most likely sooner they will be here in the open; not behind vague cells that no one can pin down. Anyone got your pyramid aluminum, alien hat on to get these subtle messages? Just curious.
          ******
          oh ... I nearly forgot; the war we initiated in response to saddam's iraq. This should get the attention and at least some reply from some bomber pilot out there in pas land......
          ******
          remember the media coverage then? The attack was called' shock & awe'. There was (as ya'll can see no 'shock n' awe') just lots of missiles and bombings of iraq. No nukes.
          ******
          now for you bombers with knowledge you know this is true; and it was just lots of bombs and missiles and naval gunfire.
          *****
          but i would like a reply on this little tidbit: 'shock n' awe' was never about nukes or naval gunfire or stealth bombers dropping bombs on bagdad. It was about a non-nuke bomb we had that was 'never' (let me say that again; never used).

          It was never used. And we still have it. It is a conventional bomb to be dropped from a bomber. It is not in any way shape or form nuclear. Understand that.
          ******
          the bomb or bombs were never used in 'shock n' awe' because while they were non-nuclear bombs they were so powerful that when detonated they would actually create a small nuclear detonation. Just from the sheer size of the explosion. In other words the bomb was so powerful that it would blow and create gamma wave radiation and particulates too. If used; ergo it was not used.
          ********
          if you think i'm high on beer email me. I was surprised when the so called 'shock n' awe' thing never happened with media in hotels in bagdad on the ground. Had it been they wouldn't be reporting i guess? As i recall most of them saw all the arty but no shock n' awe and wondered just what that was supposed to mean. They'll never know.
          *******
          had it been used there would be nor have any need to go into bagdad and take it street by steet against the red-guard. It would have looked like nagasaki 1945. Plus lots of dead media guys.
          *******
          yes we have bombs that are not nukes but are as powerful as nukes and i defy anyone to argue that. Most of you pas guys are pilots and or fast movers you know it all.
          *******
          replies should be interesting (failing that the viewer reads).

                  re: Ollie North

                  Thanks Doc.

                  THAT is a GREAT piece of video.

                  BTW --- it ALWAYS chokes me up.

                  He is also one of my favorites. I've had the pleasure of meeting him
                  twice and talking to him.

                    Mahalo nui mike

                    A friend of mine with 1/7 (s-2) rvn, 66-67 sent me that video link yesterday. It was the first time i saw the flick. Yeah, it made my eyes leaky too.

                    I just envy the heck outta you for being able to meet col. North not once but twice? Lucky buggah, you. I came close once when he was out here in hawaii ne and was over at kaneohe, mcas. I couldn't get there.

                    Noticed your rvn era 'avatar' (if that is the correct word), boy oh boy; looks what happened to you happened to me. Age. Then i noticed you are this thread's moderator. And... Your in texas? Most excellent.

                    While marines come from all over the country; i find it unusual that (in my research) a 'very' large number of them are from texas. Why is that? It has to be an 'alamo thang'.

                    Not sure where that town of yours is. However i'll ask the wife since he is one of those honey-blonde natural born texicans along with that 'west texas' temper. I get some of that daily. By west texas i mean the lubbock or near by towns. Then it goes on into east new mexico around the hobb's area. Meanest nurse i ever married.

                    I am not very computer literate when it comes to these on line board things. I usually restrict my computer time to emails and bidness (okay.... Business). Finance n' stuff.

                    If you could cut me a hus; i'd like to post my email addy and ask you to do that 'avatar' thing; so you can post my jpg on this thread (or i assume once it's done it appears on any thread, dunno?) i have never been able to finger this stuff out.

                    My email is: ferrell@alohabroadband.net

                    don't make no never mind if it's upper/lower case just make sure if you give it a shot it as typed. No spaces or stuff. Other than the (dot) net (.net).

                    If you do email just make sure your to and from address is the same or my computer will choke on it. Auto junk mail.

                    I have one available rvn photo i can email (it's clean) and one of the few surviving pictures of me in rvn; this one i'm talking about was taken in chu-lai.

                    I have a couple of others i recently tried to get wally beddoe to put up in the photo gallery but i can't find them so i guess he didn't. He must be busy and i do drive him crazy. I drive slick crazy too. It's what i do best.

                    In the jpeg i'd like to send you; i'm not wearing a shirt or top or cover; just utes n' boots and my 1911 a1. And yes that is the way i stand other than at attention; even that is an effort. Been that way since i was a kid. Still stand that way even with a cane. Weird?

                    Most look at it and go, 'what are ya? John wayne?'. Nope. It is just the way i stand.

                    I used to be on a monthly mailing list for kaneohe mcas, hawaii's on base no rank exclusions for beer or who-hit-john (your preferred poison) and pupus (hawaiian for snacks or 'bar food') at the o' club. Of course it was too expensive to fly over there for that one hour fiesta at 1600 then try to catch a flight back to the big island and then the long drive to ka'u from kona airport so i never went.

                    Esp. If your perty much half or mostly in the bag and driving not to mention the in-flight inter-island drink cart. And the wait for your flight at honolulu international in the 'blue parrot' bar.

                    Every time anyone enters or exits the bar that big blue neon parrot screams. I wanted to shoot it. But they don't allow hand guns in the airport. Probably has something to do with middle eastern terrorists. Not to mention a blue neon parrot shortage.

                    In those days with that much hootch i had no fear of flying. Since i'd already crashed on take off once via aloha airlines and shot down on take off once in vietnam in a uh-34d in an lz full of red smoking canisters. That hurt. Still does i think.

                    I 'always' select the furthest rear seats (starboard) on flights. So on that aloha flight they taxi out to wait their turn to do their thang. My wife was with me. We had our seat belts on of course and the jet begain to accelerate really fast to get to that need for speed.

                    They have to clear the high rise buildings over honolulu's business district or else one mistake and the place goes 'rent controlled condo' wid fries.

                    I felt an unusal thud/bump then another and another within about 4 seconds of each other; so i reached over and grabbed the wife's seat belt and pulled it really tight while saying; 'your gonna hate what happens next' and it did. Long story. But common on inter-island flights in the islands.

                    I could tell ya stories if there was a thread devoted to it! Like ever been in a plane on your final approach and find your inverted? I have.

                    The marines come here frequently to train up north on the 'saddle road' area below mauna kea. I run into them all the time. Nearby (up there) is a fenced off place on parker ranch land; once called 'camp tarawa'.

                    This is the place where marines trained on two cinder cones called (hope this isn't censored but that is what they called it): 'nellie's tits'. Not vulgar just usmc 'colorful language' as it were.

                    They had no idea what they were training for but the place was selected because those two cinder cones (mini volcanic hills) closely resembled the two major volcanic cones or hills the marines would take on iwo jima.

                    Over 5,000 of them were there and they were not told why or where or what they were training for until they were at sea.

                    Where was i? I got off track; and never road amtrak?

                    Now i remember. The video clip. Something similar but not the same happened to me in rvn which i will detail someday. A story hard to believe but like pop-a-smoke likes to say; 'hey you can't make this stuff up!'

                    also a clarification: 'not all muslims are arabs and not all arabs are muslim'. Muslims are arabs; however most of the people of israel are arabs and not muslims. There is a difference.

                    Please email me if you wish; and i will check for your email tomorrow (monday) aug. 30th. It's about 1000 hours hst here and time to shut the box off; i've been up since 0100 hours and i feel every minute of it.

                      Apparently i got a jpg up....

                      But mike gowan and email me anyhow. I still need to do the avatar bit and i have another jpg.

                      Note the boots? I could never keep those things spit shined? Whenever i was in chu-lai it seemed to peeve alot of officer types. Actually i never could figure out that 'spit shined' thing. Who cares? Do it right and 30 minutes later start over.

                      I suppose i could have spent 13 months just trying to polish boots. My shoes now days look perty much the same; i go bare foot alot. How do you spit shine sperry deck-siders?

                          Mahalo slick i found the b&w photo via mike amtower

                          First: Larry zok i saw your message on this private message thingie but i never received an email when you called yesterday. 8/29/2010. I was expecting to find two emails from you on my email thing and not on this private message thing.

                          Like i told ya on the phone keep the bucks. Don't insult me by returning it. If i can't attend pas' reunions i can support them or as in the past offer to pay someone else's way who can't afford it. Also tried to do the avatar bit; not sure if it will work or not. If not, don't mean nuth'n. Mahalo slick for getting that old b&w photo up.
                          _______
                          now then... The thread is called 'attack on america'.

                          I would like anyone reading this to take any pocket change you might have handy and any counterfeit bills (also called federal reserve notes); and look at some of the coins and all of the currency.

                          On most, not all coins and on the back of all currency you will read clearly the following: 'in god we trust'.

                          Unless the current joint house/senate has their way then it might be changed to read: 'in allah we trust'.

                          Personally i prefer 'in god we trust' which is to say i don't trust 'allah', allan greenspan or bernanke any further than i could toss them.

                          The 'fed' is an international bank consortium that underwrites and supports the united states of america dollar. This means some of those foreign banks that support our 'federal reserve notes' could be muslim states. Wouldn't that be irony?

                          In the old days if you looked at the top of your currency it did not say: Federal reserve note. It said, 'silver certificate'.

                          Once our currency was backed by gold and silver. What happened? We..........llllllllll .... What happened is foreign countries horded the silver certificates and like an 'i.o.u.' they brought them back and redeemed them for gold then silver; until we no longer had enough of these metals to support the currency. Hence the creation of the federal reserve.

                          In those days when currency was a 'silver certificate' it was worth it's face value. A dollar was worth a dollar; however under today's federal reserve system a dollar is not worth much.

                          It's a promise for all debts public and private. It only has value as long as the federal government pays the fed monthly interest on the amount they have 'lent' to us to support the dollar.

                          Needless to say these foreign countries including muslim countries rich in oil and countries like china have us on a short leash.

                          Anytime we default on the interest payments to the fed then they can foreclose faster than a sub-prime mortgage gone south.

                          Basically the united states becomes a giant 'yard sale'.

                          We pay billions on the interest to the fed without ever touching the principal. Like paying the interest on your credit card debt without paying off the card.

                          Remember in a prior post i said i doubt few people know the difference between the national debt and the deficit.

                          The national debt is the total amount we owe anyone which we could pay eventually if it were not for the national deficit.

                          The deficit undermines the debt by creating one way trade agreements with foreign entities in their favor. You can buy all the japanese cars you want in this country right from the plants they have in this country to build them.

                          What you can't do is export say a million jeep grand cherokees to japan. They won't allow it.

                          I see from my unique little corner of the world a strange phenomena. We have lots of japanese tourists come here daily.

                          They can spend like you can't imagine because their currency is so valuable. However when these tourists get off the plane and rent a car, do you think they rent a subaru or nissan or toyota? Nope. They rent jeeps. They rent convertible mustangs. They rent fancy american town cars. Stuff they can't get in japan.

                          This one way trade agreement is just one of many one way trade agreements that combined are what we call the trade deficit which as a direct impact on the national debt.

                          How do we stop it? Well. Just about every politician will tell you it can't be done. It can.

                          We have one of those sneaky 'ace cards' up our sleeve we can play anytime although if we do the results would certainly be a fast track to war with any countries involved.

                          All we have to do is confiscate their land and plants. Send them packing and then demand a trade agreement in our favor. Of course our political body congress won't do that and it would more than likely as stated be a fast track to war with some countries; not all but some.

                          We have always had the power to do this. Those foreign countries know it too. You betcha! They know it!!!

                          I mean come on people. We have been the innovators since the industrial revolution. Why do we have russian made trains running on our railroad tracks? We do. I have photos of them in our so called 'heartland' smack dab in iowa. Russian made trains. Not american. Russian.

                          We are under attack by the federal reserve; our real enemies and oddly enough most of our allies. Anything wrong with this picture? Anyone?

                          Ya'll might think i'm a raving lunatic but this is how it is and has been for some time.

                          Virtually everything you buy is made in china, japan or mexico, et al countries.

                          Last november/2009 i contacted a large california based furniture company and ordered a large wall cabinet unit. It cost about 10 grand. When it arrived i found it was assembled in singapore, it's components were made in china and then it was shipped to the california company who re-shipped it to me.

                          I'd love to see the money trail on that one.

                          The attack on american also comes largely from within; by corporations who 'out source' to other countries to save money for themselves; not us.

                          I recently had to retire my american flag and order a new one. I was surprised to see that it was made in the usa and not china.

                              I GUESS THE JANE FONDA TARGET ON MY MAIN PAGE WITH THE LITTLE GUY MARCHING OUT AND URINATING ON HER AS A SIGNATURE GRAPHIC WOULD OFFEND SOME DELICATE SENSES HERE. (SORRY SLICK). UNLESS YOUR AFRAID SHE'LL SUE YA. SHE HASN'T TRIED IT WITH ME. NOR HAS ANYONE COMPLAINED ABOUT THE HANOI JANE STICKER 'CALL HOME' EITHER.

                              SHE IS ONE OF TWO AMERICANS DURING THE VIETNAM WAR WHO WENT TO THE HANIO GOVERNMENT ON BEHALF OF THEMSELVES AND NOT THE UNITED STATES TO PROMOTE OR EXTEND OR BLOCK THE 'THEN' ONGOING PEACE TALKS IN FRANCE. HANOI JANE BY DEFINITION IS A TRAITOR. SHE WAS NEVER PROSECUTED.

                              HANOI HAD BEEN WATCHING OUR TELEVISION AND THE ANTI-WAR PROTESTS. THEY WERE ON THE VERGE OF SURRENDER FOR SOMETIME UNTIL JANE SHOWED UP. A HOLLYWOOD STAR WHO ONLY FUELED AND EXTENDED THE WAR AND LOTS OF AMERICAN LIVES WERE LOST.

                              NOR WAS J. KERRY WHO WENT TO PARIS ON HIS OWN WITHOUT UNITED STATES GOV. AUTHORIZATION TO INTERVENE AND THAT IS 'TREASON' NO MATTER HOW YOU SLICE OR DICE IT. KERRY IS NOW A UNITED STATES SENATOR FROM MASS.

                              AS A NAVY OFFICER HE WATCHED ANTI WAR PROTESTERS BURN THE FLAG AND DID NOTHING TO STOP THEM WHICH HE SHOULD HAVE. HE DID TAKE THE OATH; APPARENTLY HE DID NOT MEAN IT. PROBABLY RAISED HIS RIGHT HAND WHILE HIS 'LEFT' (NO PUN INTENDED) WAS BEHIND HIM WITH HIS FINGERS CROSSED.

                              SOME GET AWAY WITH IT SOME DON'T.

                              LAST TIME I HEARD; I THINK IT WAS A THIRD TIME ON A 60-MINUTES INTERVIEW SHE (HANOI JANE), ASKED IF THE VIETNAM VETERANS WOULD FORGIVE HER. THE HOST (WALTERS) SAID, 'I DOUBT IT'.

                              I ALSO HAVE A STORY ABOUT HANOI JANE DUCKING REPORTERS SOME YEARS AGO IN LAS VEGAS.

                              IT'S ABOUT 1308 HOURS HST AND I HAVE TO SHUT DOWN THIS BOX AND GIT TO BIDNESS. OTHERWISE I COULD BE ON HERE ALL DAYEM DAY. 'DAYEM' FIGURE IT OUT. HILLBILLY SPEAK. I AM ONE. I SPEAK IT FLUENTLY.
