                                             Being a serf is not so much fun

From Murph

I don’t know about you folks that read this blog, but I read and listen to news stuff every day, and I’m finding myself confused as to what is actually going on, nationally and internationally.   I don’t trust the MSM to report factually and the alternate news sites seem to be a lot of gossip.   I have to be honest with myself as much as I can and I am not an insider.   What I read is at best second hand stuff and a great deal of the time a lot further down the road than that.  

The latest thing in the new is the Syrian deal with the gas attack and Trump’s response.  My being very distrustful about our 3 letter intelligence agencies on the matter I suspect what they say is not the whole story and maybe not true at all.  And, add in the stories on C. Rice mixed in and none of it makes any sense.   I think that Carl Denninger at has some good arguments on the whole thing.  As of today I haven’t seen anything yet on a Russian response.  We were told that Syria didn’t have any chemical weapons left.   So what’s going on:  A rebel unit in Assad’s military?   Another intervention by American black opps?  How the rest of the world reacts to this will be interesting, if we hear the truth of that.  

The health care bill that was shut down from lack of votes is another major issue.   Again, has been writing about this fiasco for a long time now.  If his math and assumptions are correct, the health care in this country will bankrupt the country inside of 5 years.   If you want to see what he has to say, you will need to go back to a few of his posts.  Click on the Topic List on the right hand side of the post.   Other political writers seem to be picking up on this angle.  

I have a friend in Sweden that tells me that a lot of our news is not true about what is happening there with the Muslim invasion and that they consider Trump to be a joke. 

There are so many issues that are presented that I can’t keep track of them all.  This is induced complexity as far as I am concerned and is designed to keep us all debt serfs, health care being a major part of it.   We have a small health clinic here in town and their billing procedures are a head scratcher.   I finally went into the financial office to ask about it because it made no sense.  The woman there told me that yes it was confusing and explained it to me.   It’s a completely stupid way of doing things and is designed to be complex and not make sense to the customers.   When I told the lady that the whole system was a cartel she didn’t disagree.   I didn’t have the nerve to ask her what the salaries of the managers were.  I don’t doubt that they are pretty high and in this area $15/hr is considered pretty good wages.

 Since the Oregon state laws have made pot legal, local governments are scrambling to figure out how to tax the beegjesus out of the growers and the retailers.  Pretty soon, I speculate that the big boys will take it over because of the profit structure and the tax revenues for the local governments.   Of course, the feds are still in on the whole deal because of pot’s drug classification (it’s schedule I at the fed level, same as heroin).   The history of that classification and the propaganda put out around it are interesting to read about.   All this is despite its medical usage.  

So, whose information do we trust to be true and unbiased?   Frankly, I can’t get on board with much of any of it.  There is just too many fingers in pie.   What I am convinced of is that our government is a nest of vipers and getting them out of power is nigh on to impossible.  The only way it could happen is a mass awakening and a political revolution of some kind, maybe even a shooting revolution.  I think Trump tried the political revolution but I think he is against too many big boys to be successful.   They will stop him one way or another.   We shall see.
