Wealth Inequality: It’s Far Worse Than You Think

Wealth Inequality: It’s Far Worse Than You Think The great divide between our beliefs, our ideals, and reality If poor people knew how rich rich people are, there would be riots in the streets. We have no idea how unequal our society has become. The average American believes that the richest fifth own 59% of the wealth and that the bottom 40% own 9%. The reality is strikingly different. The top 20% of US households own more than 84% of the wealth, and the bottom 40% combine for a paltry 0.3%. The Walton family, for example, has more wealth than 42% of American families combined. An infographic video of the study went viral and has been watched more than 16 million times. Our unique brand of optimism prevents us from making any real changes. George Carlin joked that, “the reason they call it the American Dream is because you have to be asleep to believe it.” How do we wake... read more

I Am NOT Black, You are NOT White.

These Labels were Made Up to Divide us. I Am NOT Black, You are NOT White. PRINCE EA I am not Black I mean, that’s what the world calls me, but it’s not… me I didn’t come out of my mother’s womb saying, “Hey everybody, I’m… Black.” No, I was taught to be black And you were taught to call me that Along with whatever you call yourself It’s just a…. label See, from birth the world force feeds us these…. labels And eventually we all swallow them We digest and accept the labels, never ever doubting them But there’s one problem: Labels are not you and labels are not me Labels are just …labels But who we truly are is not… skin… deep See, when I drive my car, no one would ever confuse the car for…. me Well, when I drive my ….body, why do you confuse me for my… body? It’s…. my ….body….get it? Not me Let me break it down See, our bodies are just cars that we operate and drive around The dealership will call society decided to label mine the “black edition,” Yours the “Irish” or “White edition” And with no money down, 0% APR, and no test drive We were forced to own these cars for the rest of our lives Forgive me, but I fail to see the logic or pride In defining myself or judging another by the cars we drive Because who we truly are is found inside Listen, I’m not here to tell you how science has concluded that genetically we’re all mixed And race in the human species doesn’t exist Or how every historian knows that race was invented in the 15th century To divide people from each other and it has worked perfectly… No…. I’m not here to lecture I just want to ask one question Who would you be if the world never gave you a label? Never gave you a box to check Would you be White? Black? Mexican? Asian? Native American? Middle Eastern? Indian? No. We would be one; we would be together No longer living in the error Of calling human beings Black people or White people These labels that will forever blind us from seeing a person for who they are But instead seeing them through the judgmental, prejudicial, artificial filters of who we THINK they are And when you let an artificial label define yourself Then, my friend, you have chosen smallness over greatness and minimized your…. self Confined and divided your …..self from others And it is an undeniable fact that When there is division, there will be conflict And conflict starts wars There-fore every war has started over labels It’s always us… versus them So the answer to war, racism, sexism, and every other -ism Is so simple that every politician has missed it It’s the labels… We must rip them off Isn’t it funny how no baby is born racist Yet, every baby cries when they hear the cries of another No matter the gender, culture or... read more

Why Obama and Hillary Must Stop Donald Trump at All Costs

What would happen if Trump were elected? Actually – it’s scary if you’re a politician! Actually, no matter what everyone thinks about Donald Trump, the writer of this article, Wayne Allyn Root is a respected journalist and was a candidate for Vice President with the Libertarian Party in 2008. Root does have the correct take on the dismal state of the American political system, which is totally corrupt. It is well worth your time to read this very interesting article. This is well written and gives Middle Class Americans something (a lot) to think about! Some people are getting very nervous, including Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few – and I know why. I wrote a book entitled ‘The Murder of the Middle Class’ about the unholy conspiracy between big government, big business and big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another. It’s one for all and all for one. It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich – everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We’re the patsies. But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared. I’ve never seen them this outraged, this vicious, this motivated or this coordinated. Never in all my years in politics have I seen anything like the way the mad dogs of hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump. When white supremacist David Dukes ran for governor of Louisiana, even he wasn’t treated with this kind of outrage, vitriol and disrespect. When a known fraud, scam artist, and tax cheat like Al Sharpton ran for president, I never saw anything remotely close to this. The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened like never before. Why? Duke was never going to win. Sharpton was never going to win. Ron Paul was never going to win. Ross Perot was never going to win as a third-party candidate. Those candidates either didn’t have or couldn’t spare the billion dollars it takes to win the presidency. But Donald Trump can self-fund that amount tomorrow and still have another billion left over to pour into the last two-week stretch run before Election Day. No matter how much they say to the contrary, the media, business and political elite understand that Trump is no joke. He could actually win and upset their nice cozy apple cart. It’s no coincidence that everyone has gotten together to destroy ‘The Donald’. No, this is a coordinated conspiracy led by President Barack Obama. Obama himself is making the phone calls and giving the orders; he’s the ultimate intimidator who plays by the rules of Chicago thug politics. Why is this so important to Obama? It’s because most of the other politicians are part of the old boys club.... read more

Someone Asked The Dalai Lama What Surprises Him Most, His Response Was Mind Altering

Someone Asked The Dalai Lama What Surprises Him Most, His Response Was Mind Altering You could say that the Dalai Lama is a pretty interesting guy, after all his stance on extra terrestrial life is quite interesting. During an interview the Dalai Lama was asked what surprises him the most, his response was quite mind altering. “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” Pretty striking and powerful stuff if you really take it in. Sure, it’s easy to read this quote and move onto another page or video or whatever we may be doing, but if you truly take the time to let this reverberate in your conscious mind for a few minutes, the true meaning and profoundness of what he’s saying will kick in. Everything Is Backwards On Earth! We do so many things backwards here. We go about our lives in such a destructive manner on so many levels, only to use money to fix it. In order to get that money we have to work most of our days at jobs we for the most part don’t like -which of course is not good for your health to begin with. We do all this while thinking of all the toys we can buy with the money or saving for retirement that we may never make it to. It appears as though we live to work more than anything else here. In a sense we are like slaves only we don’t know it. The Dalai Lama’s quote and what it inspires within me reminds me of one of my favorite quotes that I feel sums up how we do things here in such a beautiful way. “Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.” – Michael Ellner Are you awake Yet?

Here Are the Real Terrorists We Should Be Worrying About

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before morning.” – Henry Ford “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” – Thomas Jefferson 1. The .01% Have as Much Wealth as 80% of America The combined net worth of the 16,000 richest Americans is approximately the same as the total wealth of 256,000,000 people. Details for this statistic and other facts to follow are at You Deserve Facts. 2. Americans with up to a Quarter-Million Dollars are Part of the Nearly 80% of Americans with Less Wealth Than the .01% The 80% includes all Americans with a net worth up to about $277,000. 3. The .01% Own about as Much as 75% of the Entire World The world’s poorest 75% own roughly 4 percent of total global wealth, approximately the same percentage of wealth owned by the .01% in the United States. Again, calculations are shown here. 4. The .01% – Who Are They? It starts with the billionaires, the Forbes 400 and 136 more, for a total of 536 individuals with a total net worth of $2.6 trillion at the end of 2015. It continues with more Ultra High Net Worth Individuals (UHNWIs). These loftily-named people, over 15,000 of them, are worth hundreds of millions of dollars apiece, bringing the total .01% wealth to about $6.2 trillion, based on 2013-14 data. But U.S. wealth has grown by about 30 percent in three years, and the Forbes 400 has grown by 38 percent, and thus the total wealth of the .01% has grown to over $9 trillion. In contrast, a recent Institute for Policy Studies report calculated that the bottom half of America has about $732 billion in total wealth, and further calculations on the same data show that the bottom 75% of America owned about $6.2 trillion in 2013. 5. The Unique Brand of .01% Terror: Making a Game of Tax Avoidance While 2,500,000 Children Experience Homelessness Wealth ownership is not contemptible if the owners of that wealth accept their responsibility to the society that makes their great fortunes possible. But instead of paying taxes, the wealthiest Americans have formed an “income defense industry” to shelter their riches, with, according to the New York Times, “a high-priced phalanx of lawyers, estate planners, lobbyists and anti-tax activists who exploit and defend a dizzying array of tax maneuvers, virtually none of them available to taxpayers of more modest means.” On the corporate end, over half of U.S. corporate foreign profits are now being held in tax havens, double the share of just twenty years ago. Yet for some of our largest corporations, according to the Wall Street Journal, over 75 percent of the cash... read more

Just so you know. The Constitution was…

The Constitution was not written by government to tell the People what natural and unalienable individual rights they are granted or may exercise, it was written by the People to tell government what specific individual rights government shall never alter, abolish, or infringe upon at all. The Constitution was not written by government to tell the People how government shall rule over them, it is written by the People to tell government how it shall be structured, how it shall function, and, how it is to serve the People. The Constitution is subordinate to the will of the People that created it, not the will of the government created by it. The Constitution is not to be interpreted by the government it creates, but only by the People who are responsible for its creation. To do otherwise is to allow the government to foment an interpretation that converts it from a submissive servant to a tyrannical master over its own creators. The Constitution creates and legitimizes government only as a servant of the People; government is neither the equal of the People nor their master, it is always created to be subservient to them. We must return government to its proper role of servant by whatever means is necessary, or all shall be lost. Are you awake Yet?

Navy Seal DESTROYS Hillary– ‘You Are An Ignorant LIAR’

A U.S. Navy Seal veteran named Dom Raso has made it his personal mission to call Hillary Clinton out for the lie she told to an audience “in order to make herself appear as courageous as American soldiers.” The lie he is referring to is what Clinton said about dodging enemy fire in Bosnia. “I remember landing under sniper fire,” Clinton once said. “There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicle to get to our base. It was a moment of great pride for me.” Video footage proves Clinton was greeted warmly with handshakes that day, as Raso points out. She later attempted to blame her lie on human error calling her “mistake” a “misstatement.” Do you want her to be your next president? Are you awake Yet?

Yes, A Judge DID Call For The FBI and US Marshals To Arrest Congress And The President

I know you have seen it… an article went completely viral titled, “Judge Calls For FBI and US Marshals To Arrest Congress And The President.” Shortly after it was published, a few websites came out and said that a real judge really didn’t say those things. Interestingly though, the original link and pdf to the statement was in the article itself. Then on December 18th, 2015, Judge Anna von Reitz issued this statement, confirming that she did indeed call for the FBI and US Marshals to arrest congress and the president: A Reply to “Snopes” and All Others: Yes, an Alaskan state judge HAS called upon the US Marshals and the rest of the “law enforcement agencies” to do their real job. There are two systems of law in this country, and it is long past time for you all to learn the facts. When The Constitution was adopted there was already a Common Law Court System in this country that had been established for over 200 years. The Constitution created an additional “federal” court system for the needs of the “federal government”—- that court system is obligated to function in two venues only: administrative (Article I) and maritime/admiralty (Article III). As you can see for yourself if you ever wake up and bother to look, the Seventh Amendment very clearly stipulates that ALL matters involving living people and their property assets in excess of $20 are to be decided under Common Law and as you can also readily find out Erie Railroad v. Thompkins (1938) there is no such thing as Federal Common Law. Since all the “States of States” incorporated and adopted the Uniform Commercial Code circa 1965, they have operated as “federal States of States” as defined in the UCC Definitions Section. All these things calling themselves “States” — except for one—are actually corporate franchises of the parent corporations located in Delaware or Washington, DC, respectively, and are private, for-profit organizations no different from General Electric or Macy’s and having NO public office, authority, oath, or bond at all. They are merely “governmental services corporations” in the business of doing what? Providing governmental services to you as a consumer. All these “courts” you see calling themselves various fictitious names like the “SUPREME COURT FOR THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA” are operated by members of the American Bar Association— all declared to be foreign agents of the British Crown employed as bill collectors. They are all corporations imposing their services upon you. Both the American Bar Association and the Internal Revenue Service are bill collection agencies employed by Northern Trust, Inc. and both have functioned as foreign crime syndicates on our shores for longer than anyone living can remember. If “Snopes” were worth a hoot in Hell as a fact checking organization, they would have already discovered all of this and a LOT more, so my advice is to stop taking what a couple liberal Californians have to say about reality as Gospel and start using your own eyes, ears, and minds to check your own facts.
