This page begins and ends with this song, because it's a
good way to manage your feelings when being faced with bitter pills about
the truth of things you'll be glad you know and wish weren't true.

I understood long ago that the government had a lot to do
with job creation, as well as making sure that enough people were
attracted to certain professions to make sure work got done. It
didn't occur to me that the government was practicing classism.
When Ronald Reagan talked about allowing corporations to
run certain government functions, such as operating prisons, I thought it
would be a good thing, professionals working with criminals to
reduce repeat offenders and help these people to resolve whatever drove
them to crime. It did not occur to me that the government would pass law
laws that would make it easier for corporate prisons to make a profit.

I remember hearing the radio reports of the siege at Waco,
wondering what in the world did the United States Government need tanks to
go after its own citizens for? Especially Christians? I watched a movie
called Waco: The Rules of Engagement, and anyone who sees it will know why
it really was murder by the government, as no one could possibly justify
what actually happened there.
I remember reading about a woman who wrote to the
government complaining her life was in danger and she was angry at the
government for harassing them, written up in government files as paranoid
and having a persecution complex. Not long after that, she was shot dead
by Federal Agents on the front step of her Ruby Ridge house with her very
young baby in her arms.
I remember the same thing about tanks and Wounded Knee...
seeing those tanks while watching the Today Show, wondering what could be

I find it interesting that people generally tend to think
"the bad guys" are the Republicans, and the Bush family. Ron
Paul has, of course, made the Council on Foreign Relations more public,
and just about the time that the Federal Reserve goes away, they will have
already handed over their practices and illegal ties to the federal treasury
to the IMF, International Monetary Fund. Just a few more of the deceptions
and misinformation believed by so many for so long.

During the 70's, Cat Stevens song "Where Will the
Children Play?" was the standard for asking the question of older
people when also asking, what are you leaving for the next generation. A
proud tradition of the lives of U.S. citizens has always been to know
their children had at least a little bit better lives than their own.
A few years back, I was talking to some people while they
were working, and one guy said "I know we're really messing things
up, but I'll leave it to my kinds to fix it up later:" I thought, why
bother having kids? Not long ago, I saw a map of all the nuclear
reactors in the world and thought, if someone was diabolical, their
placement could easily be used as strategically located atomic bombs. The
recent nuclear plant disasters in Japan suggest that sort of possible
thinking. A greater explanation of that could take hours, going back to
before World War II. The reaction by the U.S. Nuclear Industry in
the United States to the disasters in Japan was to ask for permits for
more than 400 additional reactors in the Untied States before public
reaction could cause rejections of applications in the future.

When we think of Native Americans - Indians - we tend to
forget that when we arrived here as pilgrims, this nation, this country
was theirs. While we often demonize other nations for their treatment of
native tribes, the United States Government has rarely kept its promises
to our own Native Americans. It's interesting, given how so many people
put so much effort and care into preserving their own ethnic and religious
cultures these days without separating them from society as a whole.
I find it even more interesting to consider proposed sales
of lands - a 50 mile strip of land in Massachusetts, and
600,000 acres of oil land in Texas - to China. Since our government has
gone so far to give the economic power of the next industrial
revolution to China, as well as advanced military technology, it
outs China and other nations in the position of owning large controlling
shares of this nation, and would also put us in the position of
being considered Native Americans to the people they migrate to the United
States to run corporations and exercise "oil leases to foreign
countries" say, to China, in Texas.

I remember when John Kyl and John McCain of Arizona promoted
the idea and adoption of the practice of mortgaging their state owned
buildings against the winnings of their state lottery. I thought, what
gives them the right to mortgage and risk the possessions of the people of
If there's anything I've learned by being around the media
and writing and producing radio commercials is how easy it is for politicians
and media people to suggest something as something to discuss, even things
we might have before considered unthinkable, and get us to use our normal
minds to consider abnormal things. For myself, that includes me never
really believing in the death penalty, but "allowing it " in my
own mind because it was law, and the media made me believe most people
were in favor of it, so I allowed the majority to rule.
Back when I first got involved in radio, there were rules
in broadcasting against subliminal techniques that could get people to buy
soda or candy or other products. A while back, an entire town was convinced
by subliminals on tv to buy pizza. These days, they don't call it
subliminals so much, they call it left-brain programming, or using
subliminals to program behaviors and thoughts into your left-brain or
subconscious. It's all very scientific.
Back in the 60's, it was sort of a fad for some rock
musicians to put messages recorded backwards on their songs. I was never
aware of any that were harmful, though people should understand those
kinds of techniques do work, and the CIA even determined that people's
minds can be trained to respond best to subliminal messages implanted by playing
the message 14 times normal speed in reverse.
I worked as a TV salesman at Sears in Eureka, California
in the mid-70's. The man I worked with told me that back in the 50's,
people used to pay more just for sets they said had one more circuit or
one more tube or one more transistor in them. A couple of years back,
I read how the CIA used to be able to pick up TV signals from people
TV's in their living rooms from 25 miles away. That was since the
One day, I'll have a technician tell me the true
capabilities of the V-Chip.
Scientific Atlanta used to put out a cable receiver box
that also had a microphone in it so that technicians somewhere could
"monitor your responses to TV programs".

My father let us know of an IBM computer based system that
monitored phone calls, and if you said certain words, you were put on a
list of people under suspicion. That was before 1962.
George Harrison - Brainwashed - 12 - Brainwashed
There seems to have been a long-term concerted effort to
suppress certain people, families, races from becoming too successful.
Gordon Lightfoot is one of those people. I have to believe it's because of
what he tells us in his music. This song tells the story of his annoyance,
and the harassment of millions of people working with certain parts
of the government to continue segregation, class warfare and even lead to
pre-mature death of their targets. Christians and Jews and people of
faith, and a variety of people who I'm certain have been provided with
unjustifiable excuses. Some might consider Sundown the original CoIntelPro
before the Viet Nam War. And it was seems to be aimed at more than
families of military involved in secret projects. It's racial and
religious. Eugenist and poltical.
Gordon Lightfoot's song came out a year before the U.S. Government
and the Church Committee formally, publicly admitted the U.S. Government
was doing these things. The U.S. Government claimed it stopped these
practices and medical experimentations. It did not.

When politicians only tell you what you want to hear, what
only makes you feel good.... I remember during he presidency of Ronald Reagan,
young teenagers were asked what their because fear of the future was, and
they responded: Nuclear War.

George H.W. Bush announced the 90's would be the era of
the mind. That's when mental slavery began to increase. It begins when a

Mental slavery takes on many forms. Most people in the
United States don't know it, but officials in the rest of the world do.
Something called "synthetic telepathy" was developed many years
ago, the concept first invented by Tesla in 1922.
Military White Papers say it is used to mentally
incapacitate people, often times making them appear to be mentally ill,
especially when they talk of their knowledge of the technologies being
used to attack them.
Ray Kurzweil has written a great deal about this topic, an
how the U.S. Government in particular uses it and intends to use it.
He calls it "the electronic singularity", and electronic means
of controlling human thought and behavior via remote controls.
His books, "The Age of Intelligent Machines" and
"The Age of Spiritual Machines" explain, for example, how
ministers and religious leaders of all kinds are targets for manipulation
of their thoughts and beliefs in order to control what people think and do
regarding their religions. My own writing has been greatly hampered by
government people wanting me to write things I refuse to write or defend,
resulting in what appears to be unfinished work, and is, but is also
evidence that the U.S. Government interferes directly with freedom of
The U.N. would be able to show you complaints from people
and corporations in other nations that their employees were
"read" by electronic means, and their ideas were stolen.
Thought crimes are no longer simply people being attacked
or suppressed for speaking out. The government can actually read your
mind, and according to one of the developers working for Lockheed-Marrietta,
they can insert thoughts and words into your mind and mouth "even
before the subject can tell it's being done". Interesting, the Bible
says the son of man would return, and the anti-Christ would know everything
he was going to do before he did it.
In 1976, The Church Committee, lead by Senators Frank
Church and Ted Kennedy, the United States Government admitted doing what
Ira Einhorn claimed they were continuing, and warning people about.
Einhorn is now in prison, under suspicious circumstances.

What did that song really tell you about national debt?
Long ago I read an article about Sigmund Freud, and how
his theories caused people to approach everything, sociologically and culturally,
as if it was true: that people are primarily motivated by sex in some way
or another. I also heard that Carl Jung ejected that, and though I don't
know alot about Jung's work, I agree with him.
I was in a group of people, once, who claimed that
people think about sex every 7 seconds. I considered it, and then thought
the truth is, I may think about sexuality. I may remind myself consciously
or subconsciously about whether I was talking to a man or a woman or a
child, and have that effect the things I say and the reasons I say them.
Still, if you examine history, you'll find that psychology behind a great
number of things we'd normally think are social change, but are actually
manipulations of what we believe based on false supplied information
presented as fact.
I think about that, and how many people go to web sites
where they exchange personal information and impersonate people they wish
they were... I think about the time Lou Dobbs reported on CNN that Time-Warner
made $318 million one year for the sales of pornography - of course, we'd
never question the integrity or morals of an executive - someone who's
supposed to be important - as anything but a success.
Sex is a weapon in this world, in this culture, a weapon
to divide men and women, to cause men and women to have difference
priorities: women are more in favor of war to prevent or stop terrorism
than men. I remember seeing the beginning of a sex enhancement
"supplement" where a beautiful woman was on camera saying
"Men, no matter what size you are, your woman is lying to you if she
says you're big enough".
There was a minister featured on CNN who called for members
of his church to have sex every night in order to develop closer intimate
relationships. I remember my parents talking about whether or not to sleep
in separate beds, as part of their honest Bible study, having nothing to
do with sex, they would talk about not sleeping in the same bed because it
would tend to be an interruption of their prayers to God, and doing that
would prevent them from fully serving Him.

Ballad of Sigmund Freud
That reminds me: Kinsey, the famous sex researcher's of
the 50's and 60's, came out with something called "The Kinsey
Report". It told us everything nobody had the courage to talk about
or reveal about our sex habits before. One morning, the were supposed to
appear on CBS to discuss their report that was the basis of people
believing Gay people could be "cured". The producer of
that morning TV show on CBS, a woman co-anchoring Free Speech TV
news talk program for gay people, reported that she had also lined up for
that interview segment a psychologist to refute the claim that gay people
could be cured. She said, Kinsey cancelled the interview, and the report
never existed at all.
I couldn't decide whether to play this next person's song
or not. She has other songs I relate to more But she obviously shows the frustration
of plenty of people these days realizing that for whatever reason, her
government isn't their government. She's singing about the
government, the national and some local media, and other leaders not
telling you what they think you would not believe. Meaning, they're not
really leaders or trustworthy.
Holly GoAnarchy - Why Am I Not A Lesbian - 03 - They're Lying To
There's something about that song that's so true I can't
not play it.
The issues of people and of God don't really change from
year to year, decade to decade, but the progress resulting from so called
leaders proves they have lead nothing but gone along with their leaders
while pretending to represent our interests. I'm like people around the
wrold asking us to think about things without believing whatever our
leaders tell us is the truth, especially "official stories". I
find most "Acts of Congress" are emulations - acting like
they've done something well, and that commissions are actually commissions
of cover-ups but because of wording, they laugh under their breath and
continue to commit the cover up. The Warren Commission, The Patriot Act,
The 911 Commission...

And I wonder what people really want, a world of activists
having to demand that you be allowed to live when it's your turn to deal
with the government for whatever the government decided to choose you for.
It's the difference between a world of love - God's ways - giving and
caring and making sure everyone is alright. And what's happening now.
Would you want to be in that kind of friendly world, or a world where war
feels like the safest option, like the government has led us to now?
