 The parable of the cards  (8)
 - Franklin Sanders - The Money Changer
Please let me take this a step further if I may... because I see an opportunity to highlight a particular concern of mine. Let us ignore for the moment that Government and Industry are not powerless tools of the Banker. They exert considerable influence over Everyman in their own right. And by exercising these, can secure for themselves a much more favorable position than that available to Everyman. In time Government and even Industry would lie under the tree all day with Banker sipping coconut milk while Everyman collected the coconuts for everyone. Once deprived of everything, Everyman and his impoverished friends will likely not stand by idly under the coconut tree naked and watch Banker's depraved consumption of all that they once owned. As history has shown, they will rise up and take it back, and by force of numbers overcome their oppressors. And there was a time when this may have even held some sway with Banker (as well as Government and Industry). Since Everyman represents the majority of the population, they represented the majority of power. When sufficiently motivated, Everyman and his friends could take up their pitchforks and rifles and transform into an undeniable force, capable of overthrowing Banker, Government, and even Industry should the need arise. This helped Everyman to keep the others in check. But then Industry gave birth to Technology - a boon to Industry and Everyman which delighted Banker and Government no end. Government, with funding provided by Banker, consigned Industry (and regulated it) to use Technology to help mitigate the threat of Everyman, even while Everyman was basking in the joy of Technology. They made better and better weapons. After all, Banker and Government could not have their privileges undermined at any moment by hoards of adequately armed Everymen. "I like not the way that Everyman is looking at us. Government, you must force Industry to surrender his pocketknife so that we may make pointy sticks together. Tell Everyman that we need these sticks for defence in case the Island is invaded. These pointy sticks we will use to prevent Everyman from taking back his clothes and shoes. For without these assets we will have nothing to lend". And it was so. Then Banker did rejoice - doubly so, for when he realised that not only had he gained ownership of all things present and future, and ensnared Government and Industry to do his bidding.... but they had created for him Technology - a wondrous grandchild that has succeeded not only in increasing their profits but ensuring their safety and position. In time Government, Industry and Technology distracted Everyman sufficiently from even being aware that any of this is going on. When Everyman finally looks up from his iPad and sees what Banker has done it will be too late. They may take up their pitchforks and rifles once again. But this time Banker and Government need not even put down their coconut flavored cocktails or raise an eyebrow. Technology has given them the means to put down a revolution at the push of a button - literally. Drones and missiles could easily combat any uprising. A myriad of surveillance technologies could predict and undermine such an event well before it got off the ground. The controlled media would de-moralise, de-motivate and alienate its supporters. Electronic banking would easily cripple its funding. Banker and Government probably feel more comfortable than they ever have in all of history. Lucky for us they still think they need our approval... at least on the surface, for now. Ironically, the efforts of Everymen themselves, working with Technology, employed by Industry, at the whims of Government and under the control of Banker, who may ultimately be their own undoing. A tragedy to make Shakespeare envious.

There's been a DRAMATIC change in Trump, James. He was opposed to selling out America to Corporate Special Interests; yet Trump allowed his chosen Attorney General to sell out Taxpayer Owned Prisons ~ allowed his chosen FCC Chairman to sell out our Taxpayer Owned Internet ~ and is in the process of allowing his chosen Secretary of Education to sell out our Taxpayer Owned Schools: all these to Corporate Special Interests.

Trump was opposed to expanding the wars in the Middle East ~ yet you see his Brand New Syrian Campaign. Do us a favor James: rather than point out Trump's shortcomings, tell us what happened or Who Owns Trump ! !

Answer To :kevthorne - 4/15/2017 at 1:37 PM GMT
I read from this that it is the USA that is 'a threat to the entire world'.
How many times have we heard this - 'country X is a threat to the world' - its 'leader must be 'taken out' (murdered), with many of it's people killed in the ensuing 'collateral damage' (mass murder)?
Aren't we all heart sick of this 'war'?
Nuremburg approaches - 'engaging in and promoting aggressive war' - it's a hanging offense.
Given the ever more powerful weapons being pressed into the hands of the generals by vested interests, is it not time to step back and consider if the profit from this trade is worth risking the entire World?
Easter is a time for every Christian to reflect on what has become of us.

 Bombs Away!  (6)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
You're making the huge assumption that Trump is actually in charge of the bombs, of when and where they're dropped. IMO that's a huge assumption that I at the moment do not believe. He stated that he "authorized" the military to essentially "do their thing." Sounds more to me as though he's saying as much as he can about the fact that our govt is not run by elected officials in just about any way, shape, or form. But then the fact that a Deep State, a Shadow Govt, controls this country, and has for decades, is not a new revelation. And, btw, this is not some attempt to paint Trump as some would-be savior being held back or influenced by these bad guys. As far as I can tell, he was the choice of the/a part of the Deep State that opposes that part that dropped that bomb. Again, what goes on in this country, what decisions are made and what policies are prosecuted, by all appearances and evidence have nothing to do with either our elected officials (other than being rubber stamped by them) or with the will of WeTheSheeple, who for the most part remain willingly ignorant of what actually goes on in the real world...outside of their blue-pill matrix.

 Sudden Escalation: US Warships Fire Missiles Into Syria  (3)
 - Chris Martenson - 
'How to prepare for War' Excellent article Chris. Thank you Sadly war looks to be inevitable between Russia and the US and this time the US will get more than it bargained for . Russia has been incredibly restrained to date ,but I doubt this will last. The US will continue with this insanity until ,as many believe ,it has now passed the point of no return between these two empires. The trash newspapers like the NYT and WP have only aided in creating a monster that cannot be put back in its box Lord help us ! because the US ain't RG

 Second-Order Consequences of Self-Driving Vehicles
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Spot on, Mish; but when I bring this up in conversation everyone thinks it's 20+ years away. Like you, I think the change will be much faster than that with a host of unforeseen consequences. Insurance for human driven transport will become exponentially expensive, driving the technology uptake at an exponential rate. It will be interesting to see what happens to real estate prices (and where!)..

 Brexit Optimism Misplaced: Time for Hardball
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Only two things count: 1) Food. Good luck with that. President Trump must be looking forward to doing business on this. UK consumers face a huge hike in living costs as 'famine prices' take effect. Anyone remember rationing? My family do. 2) Currency - Read the special opt-out clause for Sterling in the Maastricht Treaty - it expired February this year. Means join the Euro, or else.

 Trump and the Dying White Male Underclass  (4)
 - Phoenix Capital - Gains Pains & Capital
Go F yourself Mr. flaming bird. I suppose people a thousand years ago commenting on the Plague were despair bloggers too? I'm OK but I live in this shithole called Illinois and pretty much everything your untermenschen straw men struggle with is a feature of everyday life. They are depressed and despairing because of the destruction in their lives wrought exactly by your f'ing Federal Reserve and Ivy League schemers with their CDS and MBS, bailouts and bail-ins yada, yada, yada. They are commenting on and in despair because of what they see and what has been done to them. I would need a lot more space than your article to list all the ying yanging and retraining scams they have been screwed by too. Become a welder. Become a programmer. Become this or that and five minutes later in come hordes of Pakis taking the new jobs they just retrained to do for $20,000 per year. Your Fed Chairman emeritus Greenspan called that fuqueing "reducing the concentration of distribution." Again, just get fuqued. We have lamp posts "reserved" for you and the other assholes like you.

 Trump and the Dying White Male Underclass  (4)
 - Phoenix Capital - Gains Pains & Capital
Good Morning Phoenix. When you compare the idiocy ~ of Trickle-Down-Economics (Reagan) and "The United States has no opinion on Arab Border Disputes" which began the First Iraq War by deception (Bush One) and Ending Glass-Steagall giving the BANKS the gift to become Too-Big-To-Fail (Clinton) and the Decider lying the U.S. "Weapons of Mass Destruction" line into the Second Iraq War (Bush Two) and the Nobel Peace Prize Winner continuing wars/starting NEW wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Yemen (Obama) ~ I fail to see how Trump could POSSIBLY do worse than ANY of the previous presidents. Your memory is short and selective and fails to see the MASS shortcomings of our previous leadership. Just look at that bunch of Loosers !
