As I've come to expect, this blogger calls Bush's politics "socialism." (Communitarianism isn't even a topic on his list.) But, I've got several emails lately from people who have been calling it "neo-socialism" for lack of a better word to describe what they see. Now that they have been introduced to communitarianism, they can easily see that's what the new political system is actually called. And, they're grateful to see how much valid information there is about it for further study.
It still doesn't really matter so much to me if it's the Illuminati or the aliens from Atlantis who guide the elites. It's a personal choice of how I spend my time. While it's extremely interesting to read all the theories and speculate which ones hold more water, if our interest veers more toward current events and we want to know what's actually happening today, there's an abundance of verifiable, factual, current publications about communitarianism, written in every language, around the world. This doesn't mean there are not a lot of verifiable current UFO sightings and mysterious activities performed by secret societies as well as Satanic ritualists, covered in mainstream. MK Ultra and the psychological and drug experiments are all also verifiable. Chemtrails, whatever they are, are real. What I mean is, while many people refuse to even consider that there is an entire political/religious/legal synthesis they're never once considered, others, like me, are absolutely fascinated to find it exists and are astonished at how organized and well presented it is. That we can see how it ties to every issue is mind blowing, because we had never heard of it before. How can something so huge be so unknown to so many educated readers?
This is your president speaking, in 1796:
"Harmony, liberal intercourse with all nations, are recommended by policy, humanity, and interest. But even our commercial policy should hold an equal and impartial hand; neither seeking nor granting exclusive favors or preferences; consulting the natural course of things; diffusing and diversifying by gentle means the streams of commerce, but forcing nothing; establishing (with powers so disposed, in order to give trade a stable course, to define the rights of our merchants, and to enable the government to support them) conventional rules of intercourse, the best that present circumstances and mutual opinion will permit, but temporary, and liable to be from time to time abandoned or varied, as experience and circumstances shall dictate; constantly keeping in view that it is folly in one nation to look for disinterested favors from another; that it must pay with a portion of its independence for whatever it may accept under that character; that, by such acceptance, it may place itself in the condition of having given equivalents for nominal favors, and yet of being reproached with ingratitude for not giving more. There can be no greater error than to expect or calculate upon real favors from nation to nation. It is an illusion, which experience must cure, which a just pride ought to discard."

This is your president speaking, in 2008:
WASHINGTON (AFP) - US President George W. Bush said in an interview Tuesday he was forced to sacrifice free market principles to save the economy from "collapse."
""I've abandoned free-market principles to save the free-market system,"" Bush told CNN television, saying he had made the decision ""to make sure the economy doesn't collapse."
"At a G20 summit last month in Washington, Bush resisted some proposals for global financial regulation and argued free market principles still held true despite the global economic downturn. "http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/afp/081216/usa/finance_economy_us_bush
We are in big trouble if Bush is the best debater we have at the global table arguing for free market principles! Come on. What is market-socialism, state-corporate capitalism and/or communitarianism? Would not the world be better off if all our leaders (and not just Klaus) were openly talking about what KIND of global system we're all volunteered into building?
Here's an interesting historical account of the laws forwarded to the ACL inox from Florida that shows how we were led into economic meltdown. This letter names the exact laws and executive orders at the root of the crisis. Verifying this would require a team of researchers, and again I find something that ties into what Todd wants to teach me. Maybe by Jan I can resume my core studies. http://home.absolute.net/xode/nwofraud/Bankruptcy_Fraud/Bankfraud2.htm
This is your 2009 vp president-elect speaking:
"According to US media, Obama's team is looking to craft a package worth between 675 and 775 billion dollars over two years, but it could swell to 850 billion as it moves through the legislative process. Some news reports have predicted it may even top a trillion dollars.
"The US economy has been the foremost concern of Americans for months, as it continues to nosedive despite a 700-billion-dollar Wall Street rescue plan agreed in October.
"Vice president-elect Joseph Biden Sunday would not be drawn on precise figures of a second stimulus package.
""What we're doing is putting together what we think will be the economic package that will do two things. One, stem the hemorrhaging of the loss of jobs, and begin to create new jobs," Biden told ABC's This Week.
""At the same time, we provide continuing liquidity for the financial markets."
"But he admitted that since the Democratic team's victory in the November 4 election, the economy has turned out to be in much worse shape than previously thought.
""Every economist that I've spoken to ... from well-known economists on the right, conservative economists, to economists on the left, and everyone in between, says the scope of this package has to be bold; it has to be big.
""There's going to be real significant investment, whether it's 600 billion dollars or more or 700 billion dollars. The clear notion is, it's a number no one thought about a year ago," Biden said." http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/afp/081222/usa/us_politics_obama_economy_11
No one thought of, eh? If we were to translate Bush and Biden's double-speak above, what would it sound like? Anyody want to try? :)
In unrelated Gerteeville news:
Weather dropped considerably, having to cut wood loads twice a day now and if I want it warm I have to get up and feed the fire every 2-3 hours. I did that for a few days and then last night I said to hell with it and slept almost 11 hours straight. Ron said he thinks that's why Alaskans get cabin fever, mostly from sleep deprivation from keeping the fire going all winter. It was 30 below outside and 4 degrees above inside when I woke up but I slept with my hat on (I'm "mama in her kerchief" in Twas the Night Before Christmas!) and put my 10 dollar beaver coat over my sleeping bag. I love this coat and it helps me get up. Then I remember I can also just slide into my soft fuzzy warm booties and be warm while I start the fire. I have a nice comfy little stool right next to the wood stove (where everyone who comes in cold always sits). The water in the jug wasn't frozen so I could fill my teapot and start heating water for instant coffee (or my press) right away. It's hard to roll cigs when it's 4 degrees so I'm not smoking first thing every morning anymore. Heh. Took my coat off and was ale to use electronics after about an hour.
The other morning I woke wide awake at 4 am. It was still 40 above in here and I was surprised that woke me. I wanted to fall back asleep but I couldn't, so I made a pot of coffee, went out and sawed a huge load of wood and made myself a roaring fire. I had pancakes cooking and was cleaning up when suddenly I heard the worst screeching noise and crunching snow soon after a loud truck had passed by. I listened, heard nothing else and I went back to what I was doing. About 20 minutes later the dogs started barking and I heard clomping and snow crunching coming toward my doorway. I covered the damn window when I insulated the door so I couldn't look out. I kept yelling "who's out there?" and all I got back was a banging on the door. I was like, holy crap man, WHAT is out there??? and got my gun. Turned out to be a neighbor kid who rolled his truck about 1/2 mile away from me, saw my smoke and stumbled all the way here with only one shoe on (lost the other one in the wreck). He had no hat and no gloves and was near froze to death, but it just so happened I had a big pile of wood and a roaring fire and a hot cup of coffee for him to put his hands around. His timing was so perfect I told him I think the Lord didn't want his momma to have to deal with him dying just yet. I don't know him. He said he's lived here all his life and was hoping he wouldn't get shot coming up to my door. His throat was froze shut.
Marco decided it's too cold for him outside and yeah, okay, the dogs can start sleeping inside. There's room.
