The Cost of Doing Business

The true impact of globalism is becoming clearer every day. And the impact is taking its toll not just here in the States but all over the world as we all go down like sheep to be slaughtered by the global economic terrorism of China.

And for the USA this melamine in the food to fake out the tests for protein when grading is just be beginning. [link] [link] We have never had to deal with this kind of overt, dangerous tampering with the food supply in our country. Keep in mind that Menu Foods has stated that they purchased HUMAN FOOD GRADE wheat gluten from the Chinese company (see articles in above links).

As this world becomes smaller, we have seen the lives of US citizens became more and more like our 3rd world neighbors. We all know that wages are down and for America's working class "job security" is almost an oxymoron. International Corporations funded by International Banking in bed with the US Government-and governments across the globe, creates a corrupt combine that pushes workers in industrialized nations into a corner. If an industrial nation chooses to compete globally against a mass of government slaves in piss-poor working conditions, to stay competitive, they too must accept a lower standard of living and employment.

And it will get lower and lower and lower.

The Chinese industrial model has also affected working conditions in other developing nations where the people were just barely starting to grasp some measure of life being less oppressed. As those factories in India and Taiwan, even Mexico are getting pressure from the buyers to be competitive with China their already marginal standards are dropping as well. [link] [link]

As for the USA does anyone else remember a thing called PROTECTIONISM??
Its a great little concept where instead of letting slave-manufactured third world goods flood our shores making US manufacturing jobs obsolete, we actually charge other countries for the privilege of doing business with America and adjust the prices to consumers to reflect the cost of the goods in the US domestic market. Those that argue this would drive prices up need to remember that cheap foreign goods is what drove the wages down to begin with. You can't expect to find a cure by taking more poison.

Money for nothing

Whenever I think about how the Federal Reserve and credit card companies work it hella reminds me of the old Dire Straights song "Money for Nothing". What I get from the song is that its about a band being encouraged (by Satan?) to sell-out artistic talent and not be concerned with a feeling of cheapening ones self when the end result is a shitload of money.
"Hell, doing albums of crappy pop music your producer selects - its money for nothing and chicks for free."

The true cost however, is overlooked.

That's what brings me back to my point. We are like that band man. The money we spend in our "low inflationary" period we are in now is like money for nothing. But there is a cost, and the cost is in freedom - and a stable economy for future generations.

If you have been burned by the credit cards you got in your 20s with a 25% interest rate you are still paying on 10 years later you know - Nothing is free.

So do you think that the $2,000.00 you spent then is fair and proportional to the amount borrowed. That would be $500.00 a year if you kept the balance the same. How many days at work does that $500.00 represent to you after the taxes are taken out? How much disposable income do you have after paying bills? What did Chase Manhattan do to earn that money? The cost of doing business with a shark is to bleed. They get money for nothing - from the so called luxury of providing you money to buy cheap slave labor Chinese crap [link] [link] [link] to maintain the economy to offset the delcine of the worth of the US Dollar.

Who is doing whom a favor?

There is this whole other thing of course that produces money out of thin air called Fractional Reserve banking [link]. The racket is mind blowing when you understand what it is!

The first posting

I wont spend much time waxing about the intention of this blog. Its about how this modern life has turned for the worst. Its about how society as we know it has regressed with the Western thrust of the Enlightenment ending some 70 years ago (at best) - what we have had in the mean time is the development of these intense systems of control which have gown to the point that we must now face it every day.

Additionally, regarding the format of writing in this blog. I belive language and thoughts are fluid and interconnected. Ideas flow, so consider it "Essay Jazz". In your own use of expressions, be clear but don't hold back. Communication is liquid.
