A newsletter full of lies and false assumptions ....

Today a friend sent a newsletter - and I couldn't resist to show some alternatives to the author's conclusions. Most Americans ask questions and state the obvious. But the 'brainwash' in the basic school system keeps them from questioning "American Exceptionalism" and military / secret services intervention and covert actions around the world. And it has gotten worse through the years since after WWII .... no end in sight.

[source: Simon Black; sovereignman.com]

“What is it about this place that makes it so poor?”
It was a simple question posed to me by a friend as we walked the streets of Managua, Nicaragua earlier this week.
Nicaragua is a lovely place. But it’s poor. Very poor. It’s the least developed economy in Central America... and that’s saying something.
But it’s worth considering: what makes an economy like Nicaragua so poor? And what makes others so wealthy?
Having traveled to nearly 120 countries, I’ve seen the full range of rich and poor nations. And I’ll tell you, it has nothing to do with natural resources or anything like that.
I often have meetings with senior ministers and government officials around the world who tell me all about the amazing resources they have in their country.
“We have so much forestry land,” or, “Our bauxite reserves are among the highest in the world…”
Irrelevant. Venezuela has incredible oil reserves. Yet they’ve been living in poverty for years.
(Now that oil prices are down the Venezuelan government has had to declare every single Friday a holiday because they can’t afford to keep the lights on.)
Ukraine has some of the most exceptional farmland on the planet. But the country is totally broke.
150 years ago, Hong Kong was a tiny village of illiterate fisherman.
50 years ago in Singapore they used to defecate in the streets, and visitors would have to step over rivers of feces in the downtown area.
25 years ago Estonia was still part of the crumbling Soviet Union.
None of those places has any resources to speak of. But they’ve become among the wealthiest in the world.
What’s the difference between Hong Kong and Ukraine? Singapore and Venezuela? Estonia and Nicaragua?
One of the things I’ve learned in my travels over the years is that wealthy nations do have some common characteristics.
Left: Original;            Right: Alternative
 

1.

The first set is cultural. Wealthy nations have a culture that values hard work. Knowledge. Productivity. Innovation. Risk-taking. Saving. Self-reliance.
I’m not trying to say that people in poor countries don’t work hard. Far from it.
The point is that if working hard and saving money are strong CULTURAL values (which tends to be the case in Asia), a country is going to do better.

1a.

Wealthy nations have a culture to blame unemployment on the individual, not on mistakes made by corporate leaders. Knowledge that's free (Secondary Education) is underfunded; Higher education is so expensive that the majority of graduates carry this debt for decades.
Innovation, if successful, will be bought up to curb competition, flanked by laws and regulations.
Countries do better by exploiting cheap labor in those countries they previously destabilized in order to install puppet regimes.

2.

Second, wealthy nations have much better institutions. The rule of law is strong. Private property rights are strong. Corruption is limited. Regulation is sensible. Taxation is reasonable and efficient.
It’s simple; no one wants to do business in a corrupt dictatorship.
Bad institutions drive away foreign investors. And as capital is one of the critical components of economic growth, choking off external investment suffocates an economy.

2a.

Second, wealthy nati­ons have more 'fine tuned' insti­tu­ti­ons with a layout favoring those who can afford it. Thus the rule of law is dependent on the amount of money invested. Pri­vate pro­perty rights are good only if there isn't an economic advantage for the rich if they grab it.
Cor­rup­tion is called "networking". Regu­la­tion is in favor of those who belong to the establishment. Taxa­tion is for those who derive income from work - those earning through 'investment' don't pay.
Investment into the U.S.A. dropped since Trump took office - but he's just outspoken, whereas the former administrations dealt their biased actions for the rich in secrecy.

3.

Last (and most importantly), wealthy nations have an “inclusive” economy.
This means that people aren’t medieval serfs toiling away for the establishment. If someone develops skills, works hard, and takes risks, they’ve got a good chance of moving up the socioeconomic food chain.
Economists call this “income mobility”. In the United States it’s known as the “American Dream”.

3a.

People are no longer slaves belonging to a person - nowadays they belong to corporations. The data show that only in rare cases people reach another level on the social ladder. The few who make it are advertised, those who don't are not recognized. They are the majority.
Solidarity with the weak is dead, compassion is practiced by word, the conscience is numbed by a charity check on Christmas.
Any 'surplus' on income has to be saved for retirement, as the systems in place (Social Security) have been plundered to pay for excessive military spending.

Babble

Yet all three of these factors are starting to disappear in the US… and in the West in general.
America’s self-reliant, risk-taking, hard working, pioneering culture helped propel it to become the wealthiest nation on the planet.
But these traits are rapidly vanishing, displaced by a culture that values instant gratification, consumer debt, and government handouts.
The institutions are faltering as well. Rule of Law is less predictable, with the government changing the rules in its sole discretion whenever it likes.

Facts

The exploitation all around the world leaves almost no more resources to rob. The decline is also due to the fact that former producers of raw material learned that it pays to install and boost production of goods & sale of those without the middle-man.
The US-System itself fostert consumer debt because the banks had no limit to bar them from ripping off the average Joe. To blame the so called "gouvernment handouts" is absurd, when miltary spending is thousandfold that of help for the poor and needy.
The rule of law has changed only in one direction: To the advantage of those who can afford an expensive law firm that doesn't ask what's right or wrong but only how much money can be squeezed out of any single client.
They pass new rules every day governing everything from what you can/cannot put in your own body, to how you are allowed to raise your own child, with much of it enforced at gunpoint.
And through an official form of theft known as Civil Asset Forfeiture, government agencies now steal more private property from people than all the thieves and burglars in the country combined.
This is banana republic stuff.
Most of all, though, it’s the economic structure that’s eroding.
The inclusive economy of America is vanishing. It’s becoming ‘extractive,’ meaning that the system is designed for the benefit of the establishment and rigged against the individual.
You can see this most notably in finance; central bankers have held interest rates down to practically zero for eight years in order to bail out large banks and the federal government.
Yet in doing so, they have decimated the prospects for retirees, responsible savers, and most of all, young people.
It’s no wonder that the Middle Class no longer comprises the largest segment of the US population, according to Pew Research.
Larry Fink, CEO of Blackrock (the largest asset management firm in the world) said that a typical 35-year old will now need to set aside 3x as much money for retirement as his/her parents did, simply because interest rates are so low.
And William Dudley, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of NY (and one of the most important Fed officials) recently remarked how the US is falling behind in terms of income mobility.
“The chance of achieving the American Dream,” he told his audience, “is not the highest for children born in America.”
That’s a pretty amazing statement, and it highlights how obvious (and important) these trends are.
Again, we’re not talking about ‘What If’. We’re talking about ‘What Is.’ And it has profound implications for your long-term prosperity.

Your cholesterol is not good, sir.

The Elephants Knew

THE ELEPHANTS JOURNEYED TO PAY RESPECT.
BUT HOW DID THEY KNOW?

1

Lawrence Anthony is a legend in South Africa, and author of 3 books including the bestseller, The Elephant Whisperer. He bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitated elephants all over the globe from human atrocities, including the courageous rescue of Baghdad Zoo animals during US invasion in 2003.

Anthony was the author of numerous books on wildlife conservation. He also created the 5,000-acre Thula Thula wildlife sanctuary and adopted herds of elephants that would have been killed, according to the New York Times obituary.

On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died. He is remembered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons, and numerous elephants.

Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his home led by two large matriarchs. Separate wild herds arrived in droves to say goodbye to their beloved 'man-friend'.

2

A total of 31 elephants walked over 12 hours to get to his South African House.

Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe not only because of the intelligence and precise timing that these elephants exhibited about Anthony's passing, but also because of the profound memory and emotion the beloved animals evoked in such an organized way, walking slowly,
making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat to his house. Lawrence's wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for 3 years.

The elephants obviously wanted to pay their deep respects, honouring their friend who'd saved their lives - so much respect that they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything.

Then one morning, they left, making their long journey back home.

Some things in the universe are greater & deeper than human intelligence.

Hi, Fred, this is Alan, next door. I have a confession to make. I have been riddled with guilt these past few months and have been trying to get up the courage to tell you face-to-face, but I am at least telling you in text as I cannot live with myself a moment longer without you knowing. The truth is when you’re not around I have been sharing your wife day and night. In fact, probably much more than you. I haven’t been getting it at home recently, and I know that’s no excuse. The temptation was just too great. I can no longer live with the guilt and hope that you will accept my sincerest apology and forgive me. It won’t happen again. Please suggest a fee for usage and I’ll pay you.

Regards, Alan.

NEIGHBOR’S RESPONSE

Fred, feeling very angered and betrayed, got his gun and shot his neighbor Alan dead. He returned home, poured himself a stiff drink and sat down on the sofa.

Then Fred took out his phone where he saw a second message from Alan.

SECOND MESSAGE

Hi, Fred, this is Alan next door, again. Sorry about the typo on my last text. I expect that you figured it out and noticed that darned Auto-Correct changed “wi-fi” to “wife.” That’s today’s technology for you!

Whatever you may look like, marry a man your own age. As your beauty fades, so will his eyesight.

Housework can't kill you, but why take a chance?

Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing up is like shoveling the sidewalk before it stops snowing.

The reason women don't play football is because 11 of them would never wear the same outfit in public.

Best way to get rid of kitchen odors: Eat out.

I want my children to have all the things I couldn't afford. Then I want to move in with them.

Any time three New Yorkers get into a cab without an argument, a bank has just been robbed.

We spend the first twelve months of our children's lives teaching them to walk and talk and the next twelve years telling them to sit down and shut up.

After Muslims demanded the removal of a billboard criticizing the Islamic prophet Muhammad (picture), owner Don Woodsmall had a brilliant response.

Just days ago, Muslim groups across the US. loudly condemned a billboard along Interstate 465 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The sign contains a simple message which reads, “The Perfect Man,” with check-marked bullet points including “Rapist,” “13 wives, 11 at one time,” and “Tortured & killed unbelievers”

Instantly, Muslims knew the billboard was calling out their prophet. When Muslims noticed a billboard calling their prophet Muhammad a “rapist” who “married a 6-year-old” and “beheaded Jews,” they immediately demanded the removal of the “racist and Islamophobic” message. However, the uproar forced the billboard’s owner to come forward — and he has just one thing to say to them.

Although Islam was never mentioned, instantly, Muslims knew the billboard was calling out their prophet Muhammad, prompting them to demand the sign’s removal in accordance with Sharia blasphemy laws. This national outcry has already prompted the sign’s owner to relinquish his personal safety by coming forward to not only take credit for the billboard’s construction but issue yet another daring message to “truthophobes” who deny its credibility.

WTHR reports that Don Woodsmall, who is a Duke law school graduate, has proudly taken responsibility for the billboard but says that while he is unafraid to show his face to the dangerous Muslim community, he’ll protect his clients’ identities. Woodsmall came forward to local media to slam free speech objectors and confidently declared that he would gladly remove the sign himself — all they have to do is prove the statements wrong.

In his statement, Woodsmall says, “It is interesting to note… the Muslim community knew exactly who the billboard is referring to. The truth is a powerful weapon.”

Woodsmall explained that he only agreed to erect the sign after thoroughly researching each claim and finding proof directly in the passages of the Quran and hadith. In addition, he spoke to at least half a dozen Islamic scholars who confirmed the scriptures in question.

“I was convinced that each point listed on the billboard was historically and factually true. I would encourage others to do their own research to verify the veracity of each and every point,” Woodsmall wrote. He also noted that he would remove the billboards if the statements are proven to be false.

Despite Muslims demanding that Woodsmall name his clients, undoubtedly for nefarious purposes, the billboard owner refuses to endanger their lives. The unwavering owner slammed the sign’s critics, reminding them that it is the very definition of free speech to question and tear apart lies and toxic ideologies.

“My clients want this national conversation to happen if we are ever to overcome the violence that plagues Islam,” he wrote to 13 Investigates. “This is not only pro-American, but beneficial to Muslims who came to America to escape the Sharia.”

Disturbingly, designated terrorist group CAIR and lying Muslims are declaring the message “racist” and “Islamophobic,” although none can provide any scripture or historical text to back up their claims. On the other hand, each one of the bullet points has a direct correlation to the Quran and hadith.

§ “Married 6 year old” — Sahih Muslim (8:3309), Sahih Bukhari (58:234, 3896, 5158, and 3311)

§ “Beheaded 600 Jews in one day” — Quran (33:26), Ibn Ishaq/Hisham (674), Abu Dawud (4390)

§ “Slave owner & dealer” — Sahih Muslim (3901), Sahih Bukhari (47:743), Quran (4:24, 33:52)

§ “13 wives, 11 at one time” — Sahih Bukhari (62:6), Sahih Bukhari (5:268)

§ “Rapist” — Abu Dawud (2150), Sahih Muslim (3433), Quran (4:24, 33:50), Sahih Bukhari (34:432), Sahih Muslim (3371)

§ “Tortured & killed unbelievers” — Quran (8:67), Sahih Muslim (4322), Sahih Bukhari (52:256, 11:626), (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 819, Ibn Kathir v3 p.403), 109 verses of violence.

If the Muslim critics were honest, they’d point out that the only flaw in Woodsmall’s message is that Muhammad didn’t necessarily behead 600 Jews in one day — historical records say it is between 500 and 900 Jews and likely over a period of several days.

If the left considers it “hate speech” to summarize these Islamic passages, it’s time for them to admit that the Quran and hadith are full of violent and bigoted hate speech.

It’s not racist to denounce Muhammad’s ownership of dozens of black slaves as racist. In fact, it’s racist of Muslims and leftist to defend Muhammad’s slave ownership and attempt to censor it. The truth is that the prophet Muhammad boasted of his own racist slave ownership, sex slavery, marriage to a child, many wives and mass slaughter of unbelieving men, women, and children.

These are not fear-mongering allegations, but direct quotations from the prophet, his closest companions, and even his favorite child bride, Aisha.

It is inexcusable for Muslims to demand we shut up or apologize for pointing out the sadistic behavior of their prophet. Instead, they are the ones who should be apologizing for calling a slave-owning, murdering, polygamist, pedophile rapist the “perfect man” and denounce his actions immediately.

The Uninhabitable Earth

" .. Several of the scientists I spoke with proposed global warming as the solution to Fermi’s famous paradox, which asks, If the universe is so big, then why haven’t we encountered any other intelligent life in it? The answer, they suggested, is that the natural life span of a civilization may be only several thousand years, and the life span of an industrial civilization perhaps only several hundred. In a universe that is many billions of years old, with star systems separated as much by time as by space, civilizations might emerge and develop and burn themselves up simply too fast to ever find one another. Peter Ward, a charismatic paleontologist among those responsible for discovering that the planet’s mass extinctions were caused by greenhouse gas, calls this the “Great Filter”: “Civilizations rise, but there’s an environmental filter that causes them to die off again and disappear fairly quickly,” he told me. “If you look at planet Earth, the filtering we’ve had in the past has been in these mass extinctions.” The mass extinction we are now living through has only just begun; so much more dying is coming .."

This quote is taken from an article I recently got from a friend's son living in California.

In short it says: We are doomed - no escape, we are already far beyond the 'point of no return'.

There are days when I highly appreciate to be 72 years of age. I won't have to live through what is going to happen after 2050 .... lucky me.

°update°
Have a look how 'Christians' argue against climate change - it's a good example of how religion makes/keeps people dumb.
