Independence Day 2019

Independence Day 2019  Signing the Declaration

Tomorrows celebrates the Declaration of Independence. The media is going mad considering the Independence Day 2019 celebration in the National Capital. Why, because the ‘Modern Tories’ would rather enslave the sovereign Citizens to the globalist agenda. Yet, the theory of governance in Revolutionary America was well articulated by Samuel Adams in a speech on August 1st. Liberty is not understood in our modern times as it was when Patriots took the steps to stand against economic, judicial, religious and media ‘Tyranny’.

Independence Day was in the hearts and minds of the Citizenry. Not because of some ideological word or ‘narrative’. NO, Independence was based on the reality of the King being a Covenant Breaker and the Citizens in America understanding the full context of covenant and compact. We have lost that understanding.

Who better to remind us of the truth regarding Independence Day then Samuel Adams. The following is an excerpt from that speech and the the full link to the pdf with my Introduction in the note afterward:

COUNTRYMEN AND BRETHREN: I would gladly have declined an honor, to which I find myself unequal. I have not the calmness and impartiality which the infinite importance of this occasion demands. I will not deny the charge of my enemies, that resentment for the accumulated injuries of our country, and an ardor for her glory, rising to enthusiasm, may deprive me of that accuracy of judgment and expression which men of cooler passions may Possess. Let me beseech you, then, to hear me with caution, to examine without prejudice, and to correct the mistakes into which I may be hurried by my zeal.

Part 5 – Self-Inflicted Eviction: Public Pension Crisis

Is The Public Pension Crisis Affecting Everyone?   Norcross and Gonzales chart

Wharton School of Business posted an article/pod cast in August 2018 regarding “The Time Bomb Inside Public Pension Plans”. On the pod cast, Wharton’s Olivia Mitchell and Leora Friedberg of the University of Virginia discuss the $4.4 trillion public sector pension shortfall. The research is very clear that these Public Pension plans have been it trouble for years and the chickens are coming home to roost.

What’s that mean for Ohio?

Part 4 – Self-Inflicted Eviction – Who’s Minding The Boards?

Is Anyone actually watching or being held accountable for your Levy Tax Dollars.

Therefore every time you vote in favor of a Levy without demanding accountability, you are contributing to not only your – but others Self-Inflicted Eviction.

The purpose of this post is that simple deeper dive into the ‘Unaffordability” of Levies. It has taken a long time to bring this information to you since the details of it had to be more fully investigated and then written in more of a ‘White Paper’ format. Consider how long the list of the taxing authorities are as noted in “Part 3 of Self-imposed Eviction: Confusion – Good Intentions By Deception and Legislation”. The challenge for this writer has been to drill down on the Ohio Revised Code, the Ohio Administrative Code and the various bureaucratic entities rules, grants, strategies and policies.

Gulp! Where’s the Tylenol for the headache?

It is abundantly clear that many of the “unelected” Boards and bureaucrats of some nineteen taxing Subdivisions in Ohio have “ZERO Accountability to the Citizens of the Counties. Why? Because no one is paying attention to them. Continue reading

10-27 Breaking News Update

Breaking News!

Update to Saturday 10-27 Radio Program

Boston – Thursday:

In Boston the excitement was intense, and the whole city was quickly in a blaze of resentment. At the first opportunity the determined hostility to the act broke forth. What would normally be an occasion of celebration, political figures are found hanging in effigy from city center trees and from the top of which peeped forth a head with horns, intended to personify the Devil. The authorities did not attempt to remove the effigies, for, in the excited state of the popular mind, it was difficult to say how far the rage of the people, might lead them.

The Organizers, with whom the proceedings, originated, kept the matter somewhat in hand, and at evening cut the figures down and carried them in procession through the city, processioned on a bier. The multitude moved in perfect order, and their route was lined with people. They passed through the historic Old State house and under the council-chamber, where the key city politicians happened to be gathered. “Liberty, property, and new taxes”! were shouted at the ears of the listening dignitaries. The Organizers were preceded by some four or five thousand business and tradesmen, decently dressed and the whole body marched to State Street, where they demolished a structure which they believed the federal government was building as an office for the new tyranny being pushed by despotic leadership. Then they proceeded to Fort Hill (Roxbury), where key government officials reside, and with fragments of the frame which they brought with them, built a bonfire in which the effigies were consumed.

Mid-Term Matters

The Mid-Term Election Matter

Mid-term Elections Matter even with the election of President Trump in 2016 is the first effort in fifty-years in what he clearly states in his inaugural speech. “Today’s ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.1” The forceful opposition to this clear transfer back to Founder’s Intent for self-governance is the purposeful intent of the democrats and their socialists/neo-marxists collaborators.

The greatest fights for our Constitutional Republic are yet before US. The miscreants of the attacking ‘left’ are now fully engaged to topple every aspect of the Constitution and the Republic. With the confirmed appointment of Justice Kavanaugh they are conceding the loss of the position but are claiming through people like actress Milano, “we may have lost a political battle, but I do think we are winning the cultural battle.2” – In her interview on “Meet The Press” of all programs. This self-styled political genus uses the word ‘collective’ numerous times. Remember that language usage is 100% telling of ones ideologies.

Tolerance?

So what about all the ‘Tolerance’ shouting and coexistence stuff? Continue reading

Part 3 of Self-inflicted Eviction: Good Intentions

Confusion – Good Intentions By Deception and Legislation

Here is Part 3 of Self-inflicted Eviction, which goes beyond the emotional voting aspects of increasing ones property taxes. The good intentions of those that see or perceive needs in society often get legislation passed that creates a taxing authority (sub-division). The majority of these Sub-divisions are most often unfunded – except by self-imposed taxation. This mean that the county may be required to have a certain taxing sub-division but that does not mean that the Citizens have to fund it.

Levies: The Hot Issue

The issue of Levies is HOT across the nation. We have received tax relief at the Federal level and yet the local level is making home ownership almost impossible. Most Citizens do not know they are virtually evicting themselves and those that are renters don’t care what happens to property owners. The Confusion is that most Citizens have no clear understanding of the various Boards, better know as taxing sub-divions, regarding responsibilities and accountability. This is most true about having any idea of how and why these entities exist legislatively or what their real budgetary needs are.

Part 4 of this series will get into a lot more detail about the sub-divisions. Just to be clear, the deception is in the way the confusion of the laws are written and how levies are presented by the sub-divisions.  The good intentioned members of taxing authorities will always play on the emotions of the Citizenry. Most importantly they are culpable in taxing home owners into eviction to maintain their bureaucracy.

Education For A Modern Republic

I have discussed on my programs the type of education that Sam Adams received and in particular what his Harvard experience was like. Quiet simply, the majority of education in America today has nothing to do with Founders intent to raise up self-governing Citizens. I’ll leave it at that or as you know I’ll get very wordy in short order. 

With that, I will instead reference you to what Dr. Benjamin Rush wrote in 1789. Just to wet your mind a bit I am going to quote from the second paragraph then give you the opportunity to read my marked up version but…. I will also give you the link to the clean version so you don’t have to be influenced by my prejudices.

Dr. Rush wrote:

“The first remark that I shall make upon this subject is that an education in our own is to be preferred to an education in a foreign country. The principle of patriotism stands in need of the reinforcement of prejudice, and it is well known that our strongest prejudices in favor of our country are formed in the first one and twenty years of our lives. The policy of the Lacedamonians is well worthy of our imitation. When Antipater demanded fifty of their children as hostages for the fulfillment of a distant engagement, those wise republicans refused to comply with his demand but readily offered him double the number of their adult citizens, whose habits and prejudices could not be shaken by residing in a foreign country. Passing by, in this place, the advantages to the community from the early attachment of youth to the laws and constitution of their country, I shall only remark that young men who have trodden the paths of science together, or have joined in the same sports, whether of swimming, skating, fishing, or hunting, generally feel, through life, such ties to each other as add greatly to the obligations of mutual benevolence.”

My Marked-up pdf of  THOUGHTS UPON THE MODE OF EDUCATION PROPER FOR A REPUBLIC

Here is the link to this paper at The Founders Constitution from the University of Chicago

 

Now our Patriotism isn’t shaken by education in a foreign land but by foreigners educating those who should be Patriots. Instead we have Neo-marxists of every flavor and descentors** becoming dissenters with the intent of destroying the Republic as it was Intended to function. To the point that I always will say that ‘The Anti-federalists’ got it right.

**descentors: Those who are in “a moral, social, or psychological decline into a specified undesirable state:” Apple Dictionary, version 2.2.1 (194)

TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY?

My Vote

© www.coldbacon.com

The TEA Party is about its roots and definition being “Taxed Enough Already”! In many instances the various organizations across the US have had effect in the past impacting national, States and most important local entities. NOW is the time for Citizens to Re-Engage!

Across the States and in Ohio in particular, this week was sent out a Call to Action email that is full of information which brings citizens back into focus regarding “Local Issues” specifically Levies. The November ballot is ripe with levies that are not sustainable nor are they affordable. Many of the Citizens in this authors home county, Geauga County, were hit hard in the Primary cycle with Levies that in some cases will last for 30+ years. Longer than many of the aging population in the County will be live for.

This author, in May participated in the Liberator Network Conference. From that conference a nine-county N.E. Ohio working group has formed to focus on “Local Taxation and Taxing Authorities”.

Many of the Taxing Authorities, known as taxing Subdivisions, not only get state money as mandated in the Ohio Constitution but have the ability to tax the Citizens of the County. This is all done with your permission, by your vote on Levies.

When you look at the November Ballot – You better be asking if you can continue to afford the Multitude of Levies! The Tax Working Group has the Data that says YOU Cannot – You are TAX Enough Already!

Emotionalism can be deceptive

So don’t get all emotional about the Levies and let the proponents of the Levies get all mushy and emotional with you. We will be coming out with the Hard Facts soon and reality is that you should just start considering that:

1. Out of the Nine NE Ohio counties that submitted their taxing authorities data: Geauga is the highest taxed on property exceeding $2,000.00 per capita.

2. In the last ten years our taxes have gone up about 10%, while

3. Population growth has remained stagnant and,

4. Population Aging in the County for ages over 65 has increased by 28% and,

5. Incomes have dropped over 8% – And a whole lot more information forthcoming that clearly tells we Citizens that –

All the Levies are UN-affordable!

It Is Time To ACT!

or…. You are in the long run inducing Self-Inflicted Eviction.

Who’s Your Master of the Universe? Addiction to Socialism in Social Media

Who’s Your Master of the Universe?

Addiction to Socialism in Social Media


By Tom Niewulis  

The American Mount Olympus and Rome is now designated to be in all actuality a valley and a region in the Pacific North West, yes Silicon Valley and the seven hills of Seattle. The deep digital idolized applications of these modern Olympians are preloaded on everyone’s laptops, desktops, tablets and yes, our phones. In a sense, the movie ‘The Matrix’ is revealing the ‘Pods’ sustaining and creating the realities for all connected. Are we truly living the Toffler trilogy that quaked techno-cultural change captured in the leading quote from “Future Shock” being: “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”

Is it not ludicrous to ascribe some attributes of mythological deities or laughably the cartoon/movie characters, to business and financial moguls not giving them more credit then they deserve. Is it not the demand of the masses for ‘Free this or that’ that gives rise to the power of these intrepid entrepreneurs? Could it be that the Toffler statement – “Information overload will lead to ‘future shock syndrome’ as an individual will suffer severe physical and mental disturbances.” – be more than a syndrome but now an addiction?

Every time I hear or read in the media that the ‘Masters of the Universe’ are doing this or that, my imagination can envision these moguls of technology and finance playing the games of the Olympian gods on “Jason and the Argonauts” as they search for the Golden Fleece. So our modern story can take the lessons of mythology as a metaphor for the actions of global business oligarchs or it can twist to the social political shift of the masses wanting something for nothing.

Wait, isn’t there another statement to the effect that “There is no free lunch”? The extensibility of that questions rips to the heart of every individual that assumes that the Internet and the content is free! The reality is that every application on the Internet, every system made available to the public is in fact the property of a company. So is an individual’s expectations froth with misguided ideology in that using the likes of a search engine, browser of social media software should be free? Has the “entity in the Matrix pod” developed such a dependency and expectation of their being plugged in to the environment such that all is given freely – while not knowing the tentacles that hold every aspect of their persona for the use and pleasure of the ‘masters’? Isn’t this digital socialism?

Here is the hard fact, that is not thought through because of all of the emotionalism manipulated by those other high seated Olympians in the political temples: Social media and all that lives on the Internet absolutely are ‘For Profit’ Businesses (period)! Hence there is NO FREE LUNCH. Yet the digital ideology of socialism is widely accepted even by so called ‘conservatives’.

How did it happen that even so called Conservatives find themselves in the battle with the Marxists and all in-between to retain the addiction of socialism in social media when otherwise they cry with great tears that free markets must prevail? Are we seeing a conundrum of “Selective Socialism”? It is fine and dandy to get all the technology free-bees over the Internet one can run away with but other than that socialism is not acceptable in our Constitutional Republic – Hmmm!

I have to take U.S. all back to Toffler once again. I know there are many who have no idea who Toffler is. Let it be noted that he was Futurist and a Marxist that somehow redeemed himself into a neo-free market Gingrich Conservative… And Gingrich claimed to be “conservative futurist”. No matter how you look at them, the operative clause in Webster’s Dictionary for ‘futurism’ is: “impose controls”. In the case of Gingrich, he had been a friend with both the Toffler’s since 1970, which allowed for the incorporation of this influence into the “Contract With America”. Yes, before the Olympians in Silicon Valley there were the Futurists in ‘The Swamp’ of DC who in so subtlety determined that Toffler’s ‘Third Wave’ was “the seminal work of our time”. A simple step toward a conclusion here is that leading Republicans and Newt were immersed in the means of blending socialism into the Republic through technology, education and cultural change.

They were and are the intellectual elites that Thomas Sowell writes about.

Accepting socialism in social media, demanding that ‘Free Lunch’ from private profit-driven companies, Conservative lobbyist groups and political groups crying foul when they are sent to the bottom of the time-line feed or thrown off any particular site – What asininities to clamor for equality by businesses that are takers, purchasers of ones identity in exchange for the perception of a right to free speech on systems and software that are as was stated, Private Property of the creators – the Olympians of Silly-cone Valley.

Let me try to bring the analogy of the allegory concerning the comics of “the Masters of the Universe” and “Olympian gods” in the context of the vast majority addicted to socialism via social media.

Long before the triad of the Toffler’s and Gingrich there have been those that look to dominate society by excreting their self-assumed superiority as reminiscent of Caesar, Nebuchadnezzar or the technologist Sennacherib of those really ancient days. But then again, we don’t teach ancient history let alone back to the futurists of the ‘70’s. All of these influencers of intelligentsia had an effect in what the general society would believe even in the political strains of Conservatism.

I can easily conclude that the greater numbers of these Olympian idealists of societal influence and business magnates see themselves as ‘masters of the universe’ forgetting that in fact they are created beings subject to “The Master of All the Universe”. The ultimate question becomes what master and what society do individuals subscribe to? That does not mean what social media application does one login to but what is ones ultimate worldview that establishes expectation that one deserves, no, has a right to something for nothing yet willing to give every aspect of their persona away to private businesses capitalizing on the essence of their being?

In the end of all my technological and business background, with all that I’ve studied and worked for in the social and political environments – The conclusion is “There Ain’t a Free Lunch in this world”. But I do know that there is a Freedom that supersedes technology, the moguls and the Olympians of Silly-cone Valley. I found and live by that freedom found in the great communications environment – The Bible.

Who is Your Master and how do you justify your addiction to socialism instituted in social media?

In the end, If you really believe that you want your privacy and you desire to maintain your Liberty with a right of Free expression on a communications platform, whether it be a news paper add, telephone call, post card, bill board or other media methods – Well, you have to Pay for it! With that in mind, there are alternatives that are out there, which are becoming that mass communications platform that you want. So, you will have to choose: subscribing to a communications platform that meets your worldview or sticking with socialism by not paying with money, instead paying with your identity and persona to corporate platforms that have the mask of Medusa hiding their glaring nefarious ideologies and intent?

A last thought from Toffler:

“   The Second Wave Society is industrial and based on mass production, mass distribution, mass consumption, mass education, mass media, mass recreation, mass entertainment, and weapons of mass destruction. You combine those things with standardization, centralization, concentration, and synchronization, and you wind up with a style of organization we call bureaucracy.”
