The NRO song!

While reading slashdot today, Gizzmonic posted the lyrics to a classic song I haven’t heard in years in a thread about the GPS units in the proposal for Oregon’s vehicle mileage tax:

Electric Eye by Judas Priest

Up here in space
I’m looking down on you
My lasers trace
Everything you do

You think you’ve private lives
Think nothing of the kind
There is no true escape
I’m watching all the time

I’m made of metal
My circuits gleam
I am perpetual
I keep the country clean

I’m elected electric spy
I’m protected electric eye

Always in focus
You can’t feel my stare
I zoom into you
You don’t know I’m there

I take a pride in probing all your secret moves
My tearless retina takes pictures that can prove

I’m made of metal
My circuits gleam
I am perpetual
I keep the country clean

I’m elected electric spy
I’m protected electric eye

Electric eye, in the sky
Feel my stare, always there
There’s nothing you can do about it
Develop and expose
I feed upon your every thought
And so my power grows

I’m made of metal
My circuits gleam
I am perpetual
I keep the country clean

I’m elected electric spy
I’m protected electric eye

Protected! Detective! Electric eye!

I’m now dubbing it the NRO Song!

(The first music I ever bought were 2 albums: Defender of the Faith by Judas Priest and Raising Hell by Run D.M.C.)

Oh, I want to be clear that this isn’t some positive endorsement of NRO or any other alphabet-soup Federal parasite. As should be clear from all my writings, I don’t approve of stealing from hard-working Americans to buy expensive toys to spy back on them.

‘Give us, O God, the vision which can see our love in the world in spite of human failure. Give us the faith, the trust, the goodness, in spite of our ignorance and weakness. Give us the knowledge that we may continue to pray with understanding hearts and show us what each one of us can do to set forward the coming of the day of universal peace. Amen.’

said to be quoted from US Astronaut Frank Borman on Apollo 8 mission, 24 Dec 1968, sampled by “Astral Projection” in song “Amen” from album “Amen”

Some predictions for 2009 in the USA

Not much different from what you’ve probably heard.

January/February will be horrible, as increasingly harsh winter weather conditions dig in while unemployment skyrockets and mainly retail businesses that employ them go bankrupt.

There might be a temporary period of illusory gains on Wall Street, but with the only apparent central planning solution being to try to sell bonds, those will evaporate quickly. Low oil prices, one of the only factors keeping the economy from totally imploding, will explode back to 2008 peaks starting in June. This will basically kill what is left of our economy, in what will be a sort of Pyrrhic victory for the current economic warfare going on between USA and Russia/Iran/Saudi/China. By August, any anemic gains the Dow might have made will be decimated and we will probably see the DJIA at 5-6000.

This is when the feared and expected period of hyper/stagflation will kick in – mid/late summer.

So, with no one working, most people don’t have savings and instead debt to pay off (attractive to the average consumer due to inflation), the Federal Printing Reserve “out of ink” and inflating the currency even more in some deluded effort to stave off what they think caused the Great Depression (i.e. “we should have printed more money to ward off the killer deflation that was the hallmark of it” – NO, WE SHOULD HAVE NEVER LET THE FED EXIST TO BEGIN WITH), the lubricant to our exurb-lifestyle semi-truck warehouse interstate highway joke of an infrastructure, oil, being probably over 100$ a barrel again…. Fall and Winter 2009 look to be much, much worse than this year.

We’ll see the prices in the residential housing market bottom out in Nov/Dec 2009, I think.

I’m probably being optimistic, too.

Naturally this is going to anger a lot of the “plebes”, who have nothing to do and nothing to show for their work over the last 5-10 years except maybe some paid down debt and an over-valued house IF they’re lucky. Most people currently are getting credit simply to stay above water, and their individual situations are going to get very bad. It’s quite logical that our federal government is actually deploying military units domestically to “deter civil unrest” because they know damn well that it is going to get ugly and municipal police departments, if not bankrupt and unable to pay officers, won’t be able to handle the “civil unrest” by themselves.

So prescient about this situation have the feds been that the “John Warner Defense Authorization Act” was quietly passed in Oct 2006 to prepare for this. The troops have also had plenty of practice quelling civilian unrest in Iraq, and are sufficiently dehumanized to do it here.

On the bright side, this is probably the only way we’ll ever “wake up” to how our country has been stolen from under us and how our civil and constitutional liberties were robbed long before. It’s certainly harsh to wake up with a tequila hangover AND find out you’re homeless and broke, but those are the breaks for being lulled to sleep by poisonous propaganda put out by treasonous globalists.

So, it’s certainly possible now that a new American Renaissance could begin to be birthed at this time, given the amount of discontent and dissent that is bound to be spreading next year, one more in line with the vision of our Founding Fathers. One that resembles the transpartisan nature of the Campaign for Liberty, for example, involving a disconnect of our globalist-run federal government and a return to the land, independent and small companies across the spectrum that thumb their nose at meddling federal oversight, etc. It’s really the only way this country will survive, quite frankly – stop buying crap from China at Walmart and make your own instead. Grow your own organic food instead of depending on chain supermarkets for genetically modified poison… The list goes on of exciting and rewarding activities that could really invigorate this country and provide us with self-sufficiency, but that’s for another post.

A dramatic and profound change is approaching, and I am going to say that, by 2020-2021, the US will be completely transformed and practically unrecognizable from its bloated, poisoned state now. The right people will be happy about this, despite all the pain and suffering that is bound to happen between now and then.

Secure a water solution, get storable food, stockpile guns and ammunition and train with them, and start doing all the survivalist stuff because, unless you’re rich (and spineless, depending on your situation) enough to get the heck out of Dodge into a safer country for a while, you will probably have to face some ugliness.

Happy New Year 2009!

A small point towards the case for non-interventionism and why the USA should have never got involved in the Middle East

With the recent flare-up of conflict between Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and Israeli forces (one could probably say this every 3 months and it would refer to a different skirmish) and the subsequent voluminous commentary that has followed, I got to thinking about an encounter I had while travelling abroad.

I was living in the Caribbean a few years back, and while I met hundreds of very interesting people from diverse backgrounds, one of the ones that really stood out was this. I had become acquainted with a cool Spanish-speaking Jew whose family, I presumed, I had ended up there during the mini-diaspora from Nazi-era Germany.

I couldn’t help but bring up the Middle East problem and asked him, “What the heck is the real issue there? Why can’t this be resolved in a peaceful and humane manner, much in line with the core tenets of all 3 of the religions that birth from this area? Is it essentially a turf war built around resentment at the British creation of Israel from parts of Palestine?”. At the time, I reasoned that was the root of this problem and certainly made sense to me.

His response completely floored me then since I simply did not expect it, but naturally in retrospect makes sense now. In as basic Spanish as he could manage, for I am by no means a fluent speaker, he went into great detail about a story from the Old Testament of the Bible that I vaguely recalled due to having grown up more or less as a Christian. It is the story of Ishmael.

To sum it up, Abraham wanted a child but for whatever reason was unsuccessful in having one with his wife Sarah. The way this guy explained it to me, God had told Abraham to have faith and that he would have one in due time. Abraham, however, grew increasingly impatient and finally decided to have a child with his Egyptian maidservant, Hagar. This child Ishmael, he said, is considered the father of the Arab nation, while the Jews consider the son that Sarah eventually bore, Isaac, a proper continuation of the line.

Furthermore, he basically said that because Ishmael was born out of defiance of God imploring him to have faith about having a child with Sarah, that Ishmael and by proxy the Arab nation was birthed from infidelity to God.

I bring this up not as some kind of moral fable in and of itself – because quite frankly it’s this kind of crap that makes me say that I’m “spiritual, not religious” (since I’m of the opinion that there are some Weird Things going on that there are no clear explanations for). I’m a long-time student of comparative religion in the sense that it seems quite clear to me that all the major religions are basically saying the same thing and the differences between them are simply superficial, similar to linguistic and other cultural differences – as I have said many times before, “Same light, different lampshade”. Once it starts getting organized and canonized and all this other garbage, it becomes degraded into power, corruption and lies and ends up being the hypocritical antithesis of everything it professes to bring to humanity.

No, I bring this up to illustrate to people just how deep and profound the underlying differences and disagreements are between the Arab and Judaic peoples, for the further end of showing just how futile and pointless it is to intervene in such an irrational conflict.

Update: It’s important to point out, I think, that this religious conflict is capitalized upon by military-industrial complexes to… basically justify their business.
