In a world full of negatives where we are accustomed and conditioned to act like the masses while accepting the robotic negative status quo as the norm The TOPS and The POWER program works to try teach our members GROUP POSITIVE THINKING and unity while re-introducing a family type community environment where we strongly believe in helping each other succeed in every way creating positive human support groups. as TOPS.Our formula for the ladder of success was carefully crafted to where one would know when they are ready to move up in the industry and the ladder starts as follows:1.) TRAINEE /NEW PERSON2.) TRAINER3.) CAR HANDLER/SUPERVISOR4.) ROOM LEADER 5.) JUNIOR MANAGER6.SENIOR MANAGERA trainee will learn to develop people communication skills direct  sales marketing  negotiations power closing and consistency.A trainer is ready to build and create their family tree and learn to duplicate themselves and teach others the sames traits while building a team / family tree of trainees that will LOOK LISTEN & LEARN and follow your patterns which will later be helpful in preparing you for car handler/supervisor.Now a car handler is also known as a territory supervisor which are  responsible for their vehicles and the people in it.car handlers not only serves as car pool service providing transportation to our reps to and from work but they also are responsible for finding suitable territory for our reps to work in and in many cases has to serve as a self proclaimed case worker or counselor of some sort while dealing with every individuals different personalities, their concerns complaints and or anything that may arise like working with their rejections bad days  lack of confidence etc and help in their daily progress by holding pep talks and up to even taking them out to show them a proper closing if necessary. Now a ROOM LEADER  is as important if not more important also because they have to deal with their room mates bad bays and negative attitudes hearing their grips and complaints and working to hold a GETCHA MIND RIGHT meeting and get them back on track for a better day the next day. Also a room leader besides keeping their rooms well kept and clean usually creates a bulletin board chart in their rooms showing their room mates the technique to OPERATION BREAKDOWN to learn consistency and progress in their business, and a good room leader LEADS BY EXAMPLE and have their business most of the time during the week.  Then comes the junior manager"/ newly promoted. which will work with the sales crew and help hold meetings prepare activities on the crew hire people pay bills trouble shoot problems etc. A senior manager may often over see the whole organization with several managers and their plate is definitely full when it comes to managing. If done properly while finding ways to advance or keep up with the times but at the same time sticking to the principal basics which was designed to hold the crew together like crazy glue then many success stories may follow later.We must remember that in the regular outside world there is much temptations and negatives that one must protect from like drugs gangs thieves  and a host of many other problems and we as a group of positive thinking goal oriented young future entrepreneurs must watch each others back in order to stay on top. It is easy to get distracted and become negative" Remember that idle time is the devil's workshop and our young folks are not from these states we visit to.New people should always  be watched and or accompanies at all times and not left to wander around in a city or hotel alone, Trainers should always work with their trainees and help them with their presentations answer their questions and maybe take them to breakfast in the mornings and give them a pep talk , take an interest in their progress.The crew leaders should be doing wake up calls and midnight curfews at night to ensure everyone is up and preparing for a big positive day remembering that punctuality is key to progress and midnight curfews is to ensure everyone is preparing to get proper rest for a positive day tomorrow while at the same time assuring  that our crew is safe and accounted for.MORNING MEETING"In every profession one must stay ahead of their craft and sharpen their technique's and so our morning P.M.A. meetings are like a racer's pit stop where the race driver will bring the race car in to fine tune it check the fluids the wheels the engine etc in order to run and win a good race , well this is what we do in our P.M.A. meeting ( POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE ) where we work with perfecting our sales presentations and learning to handle T rejections.So while many of the outside world do not understand our organization and often times stereo type or discriminate our group or industry with accusations some times brought on by a few bad apples we as TOPS need to remember that not only are we minorities but also we are not  following the regular conditioned life styles regular society is accustomed to.This industry while some what unorthodox and unconventional has been around for over 100 years now but has seen it's share of bad news while remembering that throughout the years many different type crews cropped up in the past that chooses to not follow the basics and have done things with their bad habits to where they have tarnished the name and reputation of the outdoor direct sales marketing industry    One must remember that every individual is their own person and what tempts or convinces a person to steal lie cheat or scam others for their own personal private greedy gain is what's been boggling the minds of experts in the field of studying human behavior for many many years to the point where their actions affects either the company school or organization they work for or are a part of and also may create a ripple affect that's been known to destroy reputations and lives.The sad thing is that when irresponsible reckless individuals create those problems like employee's of fast food chains tampering with the foods they prepare or cashiers stealing money or credit card info's to wall street scams bankers, investment brokers to even door to door sales people lying stealing or misrepresenting the company & product then often times the losers are the clients and the company , the clients may lose their money the company not only may get sued but also receive a  bad record with the BBB the consumer affairs bad publicity etc, and the end result is not only poor ratings but loss of clients and cancellations .So YES many companies should take responsibility for the actions of their employee's and often times they may implement new rules strict business practices do background checks etc but if a person is a ticking time bomb and they for what ever reason in their personal private lives plan to become reckless or destructive there's really nothing anyone can really do and I'm saying all this because the outdoor direct sales marketing industry even though has been around for over 100 years has taken a beating and it's reputation tarnished by shady companies or individuals that have no regards for anyone but themselves but again PLEASE do not throw out the whole bushel over a few bad apples" I'm not trying to find excuses for them all I'm saying is that in many cases people have done well with the company while in many households nationwide families have enjoyed several popular periodicals and publications by which they have used to educate their children and for that reason kept buying from the company but as generation passes and these fast paced times changes people begin to try and reinvent the wheel and change the basics because they believe it is better or quicker to their advantage and when one begins to try and change the process by where the company or organization was founded on trouble follows We gotta remember that this type of industry is a world within a world and while living traveling and working together in a close family like community type environment people's true colors will soon begin to show their likes habits true personalities etc while thinking of that let's look at this matter a little further:Our sales reps are independent contractors they make their income by commission only with daily and weekly cash bonuses set up as an incentive to help people progress and do better and also an opportunity to win company cash awards. Now even though we teach daily seminars for free on how to handle rejections or keep a positive attitude some people still can't handle rejections they cave in to peer pressure others have or may develop bad habits and some may result into lying to the customer to make the sales or misrepresentation stealing etc.When the company finds out they give warnings but these problematic agents now begin to partake in inappropriate activities while still on the crew like drinking smoking weed or taking other drugs getting into fights with their peers so since they were walking a type rope they now get fired and sent home so many leave with no money because they were already in the red squandering their earnings with bad habits and choices or screwing up receiving complaints and cancellations etc so rather than blaming themselves for their downfalls setbacks or failures they blame the company or organization because in many cases they are ashamed of going back home to their families without nothing to show for .Now the company took a loss by providing room & board and even though they were not producing they would still receive monetary draws and week end advances so when they finally leave the company took a loss but over all it is an investment and a write off and many reps turn out to be great sales people and a benefit to the industry and themselves.But again when these failing agents are sent home or fired rather than taking responsibility for their screw ups they blame the company or organization by saying they didn't pay them or treated them unfair or worked them like slaves or anything to plead their case or pass the blameI do understand to an extent that the company bares certain responsibility for their employee's behaviors but when a person is acting negative they will tend to react in a reckless manner with no regards to anyone but themselves they try to blame everyone even society for their failures rather than checking themselves.Many people have gone to be successful out of this industry bought homes started other businesses made enough money to go back to school etc.Many are still in the industry or learned from the industry to where their experience helped them launched other careers in their home towns and then there are those who didn't make it or failed or didn't pan outbut over all the out door direct sales marketing industry is still a respectful successful lucrative industrySo hopefully this personal story presentation will help our readers better understand the life of a traveling sales person and or our industry and hopefully not judge us because of the stupidity of a few.Many of us are hard working law abiding tax paying loving Godly people many with families as well who are just trying to progress succeed and excel in our lives because like I always say"FAILURE IS MIND OVER MATTER-IF YOU DON'T MIND FAILING THEN IT WON'T MATTER"

Why I want to Reelect President Obama

 By my friend David Stump:
Over the past 30 years the Republican Party has become dominated by a spirit of greed and selfishness. They have consistently worked for three policies which favor the Super Rich over the rest of us: cut taxes for the rich, cut regulations on business, cut programs that help people in need.
These three policies have been major contributors to most of our current problem. The explosive growth of our deficit and debt began when Reagan cut taxes for the rich, it got worse when George W. thought he could fight two wars and cut taxes at the same time. We lost jobs to 3rd world countries while other industrial countries did not because our tax laws made it profitable to do so and theirs penalized it. Deregulating the banks was a major cause of the recession.
Over the past four year Mr. Obama did not completely get us out of the hole it took 30 years to get into but he did a lot to stimulate the economy, save or create millions of jobs, and help people who were in trouble. As a result our economy is recovering while the economies of countries that adopted �austerity budgets� are still declining. During these four years the Republicans did only two things: defend the tax cuts for the rich and try to block everything Obama did.
It is impossible to know what Mr. Romney really stands for because he has been very vague on details and he has flip-flopped on almost every issue.
To think that going back to the same policies that caused this mess will fix it is folly. If you want a fuller discussion of these issues, read on.

The Longer Version.

The period of the post WWII boom, 1945-1975, was the most vibrant period in our economic history. It was a time of: high taxes, strong unions, good government regulation of business, and good government programs like the GI bill to help people improve their lives. The middle class prospered, workers prospered, the country prospered, and millions of people achieved the American Dream of economic security earned by their own hard work.
During that time we cleaned up our polluted environments, ended legalized segregation, founded the Peace Corps and similar programs, developed communications and weather satellites and walked on the moon.
During the period of the Conservative Resurgence, 1980 to 2008, we Lowered taxes on the rich, weakened the unions, gutted the regulatory agencies and cut back on programs to help ordinary citizens. The Super Rich prospered. And the rest of us lost out.

What was the difference?

It might be summed up in two famous statements. In 1961 John F. Kennedy said, �Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.� In 1989 Gilbert Gecko said, �Greed is good.�
It might also be summed up in the teachings of two people: Jesus said, �Love your neighbor as yourself� and �The greatest among you must be the servant of all.� The French author Ayn Rand said that altruism is a vice and everyone should pursue his own self-interest. Of course greed and selfishness had been around for a long time but since the 1980s they have run wild.

How did it happen?

Ronald Reagan cut taxes for the rich by a lot and raised them slightly for the middle class. The explosive growth of our deficit and debt dates from that time. After 39 presidents and 200 years our national debt was just under one trillion dollars. 4 presidents and 28 years later it was $10T. 82% of that growth was under �borrow and spend� Republican presidents.
More importantly, that tax cut triggered the biggest and fastest redistribution of wealth in our history. Do the math. When Ronald Reagan cut the maximum tax rate from 70% of income over $200,000 to 28% of income over $30,000 the take home pay of anyone making over $200,000 doubled without them doing an extra lick of extra work.

Figure 1 � National Debt and Maximum Tax Rate

Figure 2 � Whose Debt Is It Anyway?

What did the rich do with the extra money? Some set up charitable foundations to do good. Some of them, however:
  1. Hired lobbyists and influenced politicians to change the laws so they could make even more money.
  2. Pushed their tame politicians to repeal sensible regulations so that they could get even richer while crashing the economy down on the heads of the rest of us.
  3. Engaged in a well-funded campaign of propaganda pointing the blame for our troubles anywhere but at themselves.

Point 1 � The 1% hired lobbyists and influenced politicians to change the laws so they could make even more money.

Note: The expression �the 1%� does not apply to everyone with an income over $1M but to those who use their wealth in ways that hurt the rest of us.
Working through well paid lobbyists and politicians beholden to them, they had tax shelters and loopholes written into the tax code and they pushed for free trade laws that made it profitable to move their factories overseas where they could get rich exploiting non-unionized, uninsured, desperate people living in third world poverty.
During the Progressive era from 1945-1975 our Gross Domestic Product doubled and average income of every group of Americans doubled. During the Conservative Resurgence from 1980-2008 our GDP doubled again. The income of the top 1% more than doubled while average Middle Class income went up only 20%.
As a result of that the percentage of wealth owned by the top 1% quickly went back to where it was just before the Depression. Take a look at the following four graphs. Does this situation look good to you?

Figure 3 - The Picket Fance and the Staircase.

Figure 4 � How Rich are The Super Rich?

Figure 5 � Wealth of the Top 1%.

Figure 6 If US Land Were Divided Like US Wealth

We are all paying for this great disparity of wealth and may pay even more in the future. Consider one example: the four members of the Walton family, owners of Walmart, now hold as much wealth as the bottom 40 percent of Americans combined: Between 2007 and 2010, while median family wealth fell by 38.8 percent, the wealth of the Walton family members rose from $73.3 billion to $89.5 billion. Click for article. At the same time, almost half of the people who work for Wal-Mart earn so little that they qualify for Food Stamps and Medicare. Instead of raising their salary scale, Wal-Mart hires case workers to help them apply for this federal aid. The American taxpayers are spending $2.6 billion every year to subsidize Wal-Mart�s payroll. Click for article. And the same is true for other business that pay minimum wage.
In 1970 it was possible to live above the poverty line on minimum wage. Today at $7.25/hr x 40 hr/wk x 52 wk/yr = $15,080/yr it is not. As the cost of living rose, instead of insisting that employers pay a living wage we set up programs by which the taxpayers subsidize big businesses.
In 1916, when Congress was debating the Inheritance Tax, Louis Brandeis, later to be a Supreme Court Justice, said, �We can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, or we can have democracy but we can�t have both.� Since the 2010 Supreme Court Decision Citizens United v FEC struck down a 100 year history of Campaign Finance Legislation, wealthy individuals and businesses have poured hundreds of millions into political campaigns in order to elect candidates that will do what the 1% want.

Point 2 � The 1% pushed their tame politicians to repeal sensible regulations so that they could get even richer while crashing the economy down on the heads of the rest of us.

During the 19th century the US economy went through a series of boom and bust cycles, the Panic of 1819, the Panic of 1837, the Panic of 1857, the Panic of 1893, the Panic of 1907 and, the granddaddy of them all, the Stock Market Crash of 1929. The McFadden Act of 1927 prevented banks from operating across state lines. Most banks were relatively small with close ties to their community. When McFadden was repealed in 1994 it opened the way to the formation of the banks that were �too big to fail� and had no commitment except to maximizing short term profit.
A major cause of the Stock Market Crash of 1929 was banks gambling on the stock market with their depositor�s money. The Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 separated banking from investing. If you wanted to put money in a high-yield, high-risk stock, go right ahead; no one was stopping you. But if you put your money in a bank it was supposed to be safe. Glass-Steagall was repealed in 1999 and 8 years later those big banks needed a $700,000,000,000 bailout.
Big business would also like to roll back most of our environmental legislation. I remember when you could not walk along the Hudson River because of the smell of raw sewage, when the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland was so polluted that the river caught fire and did a million dollars of damage to boats and piers; and when the smog over Los Angeles was so thick that people with asthma were advised to stay indoors 100 days out of a single year. There is certainly room to simplify many regulations but to say we can trust others to do the right thing without some regulation is folly.

Point 3 � The 1% engaged in a well-funded campaign of propaganda pointing the blame for our troubles anywhere but at themselves.

They launched a propaganda campaign to focus people�s anger on �illegal aliens� and �welfare cheats.� Propaganda is information designed to bypass the brain and go directly to the gut. Using ethnic slurs and loaded words like �welfare queens� and �wetbacks,� right wing talk-radio pundits goaded people into believing that poor people were responsible for the loss of jobs and for money disappearing from the middle and working classes. They used slogans like �No redistribution of wealth� and �class warfare� to hide the fact that this redistribution of wealth and class warfare have been going on for 30 years and that 99% of us have been losing.
At the same time anonymous hate filled circular letters go viral on the Internet even though a quick check at snopes.com will show that they are Mostly False and sometime rate a �pants on fire� award.

What Does This Have to Do with Election 2012?

In his first four years Mr. Obama has:
  • Passed a stimulus bill that stopped the free fall of the American Economy and saved or created 3 million jobs.
  • Saved 1.4 million jobs in the auto Industry and its supplier
  • Three times sent an American Jobs Act to congress only to be blocked by the Republicans.
  • Fought for lower taxes for ordinary Americans while asking the richest Americans to pay a fairer share of the tax burden.
  • Passed a health care bill that extends care to 32 million Americans who were without it.
  • Passed a law that gives women equal pay for equal work.
  • Provided help to Americans who lost their jobs in the recession.
  • Promoted educational reforms.
  • Kept student interest rates low so more of our students can stay in college.
  • Passed financial industry reform laws to help prevent a future recession.
  • Invested in clean energy jobs.
  • Called for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. And
  • Called for closing the tax loopholes that allow people like Mitt Romney to make millions while paying a lower tax rate than Americans who earn a salary.
At the same time the Republicans in Congress have tried to block every one of these programs. They have had only two priorities:
  • To prevent raising taxes on the very rich
  • To get rid of Mr. Obama so they could return to the same policies that caused the recession.
In pursuit of these they have:
  • Three times passed Mr. Ryan�s budget that would:
    • Change Medicare into a voucher programs that would raise costs for elderly people.
    • Change Social Security into a system that would provide less security for the people who need it most.
    • Lower taxes on the wealthy from 35% to 28%
    • Cut Medicaid and food stamps.
    • Cuts funding to education, employment training programs, Pell grants, agriculture, and transportation
  • Twice brought us to the brink of closing down the government in order to defend the Bush tax cuts for people making over $250,000.
  • Recommended letting Detroit go bankrupt.
  • Promised to repeal Obamacare.
  • Promised to repeal the Repatriation tax, a move which would send even more jobs offshore.
  • Opposed financial regulations designed to prevent another meltdown of the banks.
  • Opposed extending unemployment benefits to people out of work because of the recession.
  • Tried to block almost everything Mr. Obama has tried to do.
Mr. Romney�s five point plan for the economy starts by cutting taxes for big business and waiving regulations designed to protect our environment and the safety of American works. It has been estimated that his promise to repeal the Repatriation Tax could send an additional 800,000 American jobs overseas. As Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman has said,
Mr. Romney�s five-point �economic plan� is very nearly substance-free. It vaguely suggests that he will pursue the same goals Republicans always pursue � weaker environmental protection, lower taxes on the wealthy. But it offers neither specifics nor any indication why returning to George W. Bush�s policies would cure a slump that began on Mr. Bush�s watch.
I am convinced that a Romney/Ryan victory would be an economic disaster for our country.

What about our huge National Debt?

In 2008 when recession hit worldwide most countries found themselves dealing with large deficits and high unemployment. Conservatives said we had to deal with the deficit first. Most of Europe went the way of austerity and their economies continue to get deeper in trouble while ours is recovering.
Fortunately for the US, President Obama insisted on dealing with unemployment first. The conservatives limited the stimulus package to half of what progressive economists recommended so it did not pull us out of recession quickly but many prominent economists have said that the stimulus package kept us from sliding into depression. And now there are definite signs of improvement.
This should not be surprising. Dealing with the deficit first means putting more people out of work, reducing tax revenues, adding to the cost of the social safety net and thus adding to the deficit. Dealing with unemployment first means getting people off the welfare rolls and back onto the tax rolls, giving us more money to eventually reduce the deficit.
Our economy was in free-fall for the last two years of W�s term. Immediately after the Stimulus Bill went into effect we pulled out of the free fall and started recovering. Check out these graphs and the five minute video at Did the Stimulus Work?

Figure 7 - Employment                             Figure 8 - US Gross Domestic Product

But What About Abortion?

As a Catholic I have to consider the abortion issue. Some Catholics and even some priests and bishops would have us be �one issue voters� because Abortion trumps all other issues. Fortunately that is not the official position of the US Catholic Church.
Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship is a booklet first published by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) 30 years ago and revised every four years since then. The last revision was in 2011. It is not the work of some self-appointed group of lay people, nor of one or two way-out bishops. It has been discussed by, voted on, and approved by the entire body of the USCCB. This along with the Catechism of the Catholic Church is the definitive statement of what the US Catholic Bishops teach. You can download your own copy from the Internet .
Faithful Citizenship does not offer a voter's guide, scorecard of issues, or direction on how to vote. It applies Catholic moral principles to a range of important issues and warns against misguided appeals to 'conscience' to ignore fundamental moral claims, or to reduce Catholic moral concerns to one or two matters. Paragraph 42 explicitly says that "As Catholics we are not single-issue voters." It is the militant "Right to Life" groups that would reduce the Catholic position to a single issue.
I would love to be able to vote for a candidate who supports Catholic morality across the board but there is no such candidate. Conservatives support our position on abortion and euthanasia. But Catholic moral teaching on the "Right to Life" also opposes capital punishment and war. Liberals are much closer to us on these issues.
Our US Catholic bishops have spoken frequently and strongly about the need for comprehensive reform of our broken immigration system, about the need to maintain a strong social safety net to help those impoverished by the current recession, and about the need to support economic justice for all. On these issues as well, the liberal position in this country is much closer to ours then is the conservative position.
Why are so many Catholics and other right wing Christians so ready to jump on the anti-abortion bandwagon and ignore these other issues? Could it be because abortion is a simple black and white issue that does not require us to do anything, only oppose what others are doing, while fixing our immigration and economic problems would require many of our leading parishioners to make significant changes in their actions?
Faithful Citizenship does put a very strong emphasis on abortion as a major moral evil of our day but paragraph 35 notes that
There may be times when a Catholic who rejects a candidate�s unacceptable position may decide to vote for that candidate for other morally grave reasons. Voting in this way would be permissible only for truly grave moral reasons, not to advance narrow interests or partisan preferences or to ignore a fundamental moral evil.�
This paragraph has an interesting history. During the 2004 election cycle Archbishop Burke of St. Louis wrote a pastoral letter saying that any Catholic who votes for any candidate who supports a "woman's right to abortion" cooperates in that mortal sin. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, then head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and now Pope Benedict XVI, wrote to the USCCB saying that Burke was wrong. Ratzinger made this distinction: If a catholic votes for a candidate who supports abortion because the candidate supports abortion the Catholic cooperates in serious sin. If, however a Catholic votes for a candidate because he is the best candidate in spite of his position on abortion that is not a serious sin.
I, along with many other Catholics, believe that we are in such a situation. The 30 years since Ronald Reagan was elected have been disastrous for our country. We have lost jobs, we have exported our great manufacturing base, we have amassed a huge National Debt, we have seen the concentration of wealth in the hands of the richest 1% of our country grow back to where it was just before the Great Depression, and we have seen a small group of those very wealthy people exercise an inordinate influence on our political system by hiring armies of lobbyists and buying influence with politicians on both sides of the aisle. We have watched the wealthy giants of the financial world bring on the Great Recession by foolishly dismantling the financial control laws put in place after the Depression.
The conservative policies of cutting taxes for the rich and deregulating everything got us into our current mess. Why should we think that returning to those same policies will do anything other than make it worse?
Does this constitute a �morally grave situation?� Please consider the following:
Abortion is wrong. Every year thousands of children are aborted which is a great tragedy. But where are the souls of those children? They are in the hands of God, along with the souls of the stillborn, and miscarried.
On the other hand every year thousands of children are born into poverty, into situations where they will be surrounded by the near occasions of sin. Many of them will become involved with drugs, gangs, prostitution and violence. Many will die young with mortal sins on their souls after destroying other lives as well.Which of these is the greater tragedy?
You might also consider this: In the New Testament, what did Jesus say about abortion? What did he say about homosexuality? What did he say about contraception? Nothing. What did he talk about? He talked about loving your neighbor, about helping those less well off, about the dangers of being rich, about the hypocrisy of leaders who do not help carry the burdens of their people.
I am not saying that we should not work to reduce or end abortion, but as our Catholic Bishops say in Faithful Citizenship we need to work on both sets of issues.
To my mind it is the Christians who get all exercised about abortion, homosexuality, and religious freedom but ignore Jesus�s command to �love your neighbor as yourself;� who week after week listen to gospel passages about Jesus helping the poor, the sick, the outcasts and ignore his �new commandment� to love one another as I have loved you;� who ignore the passage from St. James read at Mass recently railing against people who made themselves rich by impoverishing their employees; and the people who ignore Jesus�s warnings about being rich; they are the ones who are �Christian�s In Name Only.� And they are the ones who may find themselves on the wrong side if the description of the last judgment in Matthew 25 turns out to be anywhere near correct.
I failed to keep this paper short. My apologies. If you are still with me and would like to read more about these issues you might check out the Social Justice section of my web page:

The truth about American history and wealth

One day, when the history of the free world is re-written through the eyes of truth, this new youtube documentary will be considered a classic, must watch history lesson showing how history has really unfolded over the last 100 years.  This is a history of the ruling elite, linking those in power in the world from founding fathers to more ancient times, showing the connection between global leaders, bankers & the monetary institutions. Included are secret societies like freemasonry, knights templars and the order of skull & bones. Governmental agencies such as CIA and political parties such as the Nazis. The Illuminati and NWO exposed from their roots till our present days. Anyone who understands the significance of the first 40 seconds of this video to our country in its’ relationship to present day events will undertand why ‘Waking up to the truth’ and peaceful action against it might be the only way to stop the house of cards from tumbling down all around us.



we’ve been tricked duked lied to and used for political and monetary greed and it looks like many sold out America and their souls and then have the audacity to call anyone else anti-American or terrorists.
It’s time to upset the status quo and brake away from the norm and revolutionize the electoral process by doing something that’s never been done before in this county’ If your tired of the same ol WWE entertainment game being played by our politicians then it’s time to re-write the play book and trash the old one by creating a SWEEP THE HOUSE political over haul on not only both sides of the fence but from within every level of politics city state and government . If these elected officials can’t seem to do the right thing and  are involved in shady practices are selling out for the next monetary fix and passing laws that can only benefit them and the rich and their progress report shows too many loop holes then it’s time to give them a pink slip. and if we have to stage a voter over throw and just hire newbies we can’t do any worse than what we have already .like the statistic says , it only takes 10% participation of the population to make this happen so let’s PUSH for real transparent postive productive change. This is the people’s time to shine”while doing so we need to pass a bill A.S.A.P. like the separation of church & state , let’s GET MONEY OUT OF POLITICS” where these politicians lobbyists and big companies can’t gamble with this country or selling us out like cheap prostitutes or junkies for the next monetary fix, make it illegal for elected politicians to participate in wall street insider trading etc place a cap on how much money can a company or 1%er donate or give to politics and for true equality what ever health benefits these elected officials have or accept for themselves should be available to everyone, also an annually progress report should be made available via the internet about an elected official to keep tabs on how our taxes are being spent.while at the same time making sure a first time 100% complete audit is conducted on the federal reserve and maybe repeal the federal reserve act of 1913 and replace it back with lawful money and also fining them for stolen and unaccounted funds for several years since they were created and use that money to offset the deficit
Regardless of what we do we can no longer afford to just sit back and keep allowing this to happen”
PS I’m not for the red or for the blue for the left or for the right ,I’m for what’s right’ for what’s right for me my family this country and everybody across the board.I think independently for myself and will not play the amen corner fan member volunteer team player cheering for a certain side or party because I don’t subscribe to being a groupie part of the masses , I am an individualist while I am still a giver of many causes in humanity I will not allow the political social psychological matrix to control my actions
We need the upset the status quo and change the game . If they can change or rewrite the constitution WE THE PEOPLE can revolutionize the electoral process and unify as a people a nation and take back our lives and our America”
I tried to play the peace keeping mediator and advocate of community co operation but what I witnessed was blatant disregard and abuse on a large scale by many police officers in Occupy wall street one year anniversary Sept 17th 201. My board stated the following:
I want to set the record straight ” This movement of mainstream society all across the country is occupying and protesting a corrupted system dirty politics and the massive abuse of the monetary system especially the lack of understanding of the people’s needs by our politicians. The police officers all across America under those uniforms are our brothers & sisters and not just because their union members. they belong to our churches their kids go to our kids schools they are our neighbors they too have bills and mortgages and taxes and suffering from the same pinch and crunch we’re feeling from within government with their jobs pensions 401K’s e.t.c. they are just following rules and doing their jobs all though I do understand that their are a few police officers that are abusive and out of control but two wrongs don’t make a right and those demonstrating or protesting have the right to practice their first amendment rights to PEACEFULLY DEMONSTRATE but it is not necessary to agitate nor provoke the police and if & when it’s time to get arrested nothing productive comes out of resisting arrest by fighting shouting and kicking.
If you know that you will not leave when told to and are willing to get arrested to get your point across then allow the police to do their jobs and they will respect you and your cause further…other than that LONG LIVE THE PEOPLE’S REVOLUTION FOR POSITIVE CHANGE and OCCUPY THE LOVE ♥ ♥ ♥
And for nothing because what we got was this…UNPROVOKED RANDOM TARGETED BEATINGS & ARRESTS BY NYPD


We must do all we can by all means necessary to salvage what ever is left of America.

The Apocalypse Has Arrived

 Story By Dragon Sensei
The prophesies are many, the prophets legend. Each Age of Man has presaged the events of the future that shall unfold. Mighty civilizations from the Sumerians to the Romans, and powerful seers from the Greek oracles to Nostradamus predicted the arrival of what's called the Apocalypse in the Bible's New Testament. What is an 'apocalypse?' It's not the end of the world. The Greek word means an unveilingof the Truth. The process of unveiling the Truth and the events fulfilling the prophesies are unstoppablethe events are occuring now.

Dawn of the Apocalypse
The unveiling of the Truth leading to the current Apocalyptic events had their origins in the last century.
Psychics predicted a New Age dawning in the early years of the 21st Century and a reawakening of Mankind. Humanity would begin to question the old institutions, the old ways, crippling social structures, and inhibiting lack of intellectual freedom.
Some envisioned the shackles of humanity would be brokenbut with the revelations would come economic hardship, political upheaval, and great distress.
The upheavals and uprisings would not be contained only to the human race, but ripple though the Cosmos affecting all of Creation.

Earth changes would be prevalent: mass destruction, geological catastrophes, and a newly violent sun.
But the major indicators of an Apocalypse leading to the dawning of a New Age of greater insight and spirituality, the prophesizers said, would be the unmistakable signs of global economic turmoil, political chaos, the exposure of great hidden evils, and the amazing transformation of science.

Economic turmoil, collapse
Like almost everything else, money and economics is an invention of Man. Various economic systems have their strengths and weaknesses.
Since 2008, few economies in the world have done well. Virtually all the Western countries, and many emerging economies, are floundering. Even China has seen economic troubles erupt during 2012.
Much of the trouble can be traced back to irrational policies, enforced scarcity, political decisions trumping common sense, and the penchant towards command-and-control governmental structure at the expense of individual choices and responsibility.
The crisis has reached such magnitudes that even those with little expertise in economics can see the problem.
Yet these events were predicted long ago and are just some of the signs of the reawakening and the shift towards spiritual insight and lessening of dependence upon a strictly materialistic view of life.
The global economies are continuing to unravel
While there is nothing inherently wrong with materialism (after all, without it everyone would be dead in short order as the world is physical and we are physical beings with material needs), the pendulum has tended to shift too far away from the spiritual side of humans. This dichotomy, the spiritual versus the material sides of humans, has been a battle that stretches back to the beginning of cognitive awareness.
Uncle Same faces economic collapse
Mankind's basic human nature is encapsuled within the concept of freedom of spirit. The more that freedom is contained and oppressed and suppressed, the more misery populates the Earth.
Part of the Apocalyptic process is revealing the hidden truths of the gloabl economic structure and giving way to the birth pains accompanying a transition to a better, richer world. It can be a world richer in spirit, wealth, material and emotional happiness, great and exciting challengesand deeper and more universal love.
Political upheaval, chaos
Politics are not exempt from the unveiling of the truth. The political atrocities of the Middle East have been exposed for the world to see.
The Peoples Republic of China has also been exposed for its brutal actions and policies against peaceful religious and political activists.
The Chinese political leaders persecution of Falun Gong is being revealed, as well as the state's policy of forced labor and concentration camps.
The horrific practice of executing political prisoners deemed as enemies of the State and then harvesting the hapless victims' organs for State profit is also being denounced by some world leaders and free societies for the despicable and immoral act that it is.

As the condemnation of political tyranny spreads, revolutions, rebellions, insurrection and civil disobedience widens.
Those that sought to create a so-called New World Order founded on fear, surveillance, and oppression are being exposed by factors within various governments, organizations, citizen activists, and mystics out of the mainstream.
The revered shamans of the Americas, the ancient Hopi nation, the wise holy men of the Far East, and the devout Hindu leaders of the timeless Indian sub-continent have shared their uniform vision of events to come and the events they once predicted that have arrived.
Organizations like Anonymous strike fear into world leaders
Evil exposed
The evils that have plagued humanity for uncounted centuries are in the process of being exposed like never before in history.
Grass root groups, many controversial, are mushrooming up throughout the political and economic forests of the world. These groups are coming out of the woods and exposing Truth in novel and ingenious ways using high technology to wage their war against those that would be masters.
The evil plots are being exposed all around the world
Some of the most visible movements and groups include people who have risen to the political and economic challenges that have emerged. Among the groups are such diverse political ideologists as the TEA Party and the Occupy forces.
The Apocalypse is turning over the rocks where evil lurks
High tech wizards like Julian Assange and his Wikileaks network, or the borderline anarchists of Anonymous whose symbol is a Guy Fawkes mask, are driving world authorities into a frenzy by exposing devious plots, blatant corruption and secret agreements designed to inhibit individual liberty and free communication between all the peoples of the world.

Science transformed
The brave new world of the Apocalypse has also come to science.
Science is a two-edged sword. It can be a boon for Mankind or used by self-appointed elites to become masters of the world. The scientific method can be utilized to enrich and improve the human condition or create horror weapons like those produced by evil regimes such as Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany and Joseph Stalin's gulag-ridden Soviet Union.

Science unbound, and steered towards the advancenment of knowledge while philosophically driven to move the human race ahead and empower the individual in new ways undreamed of in the past, is the discipline's greatest purpose.
Science unfettered will lead to the mastery of the self. For with advancing knowledge must come greater self-discipline and accountable responsibility.
The Apocalyse is driving this too as science is beginning to divest itself of the inherent fraud and political trappings that have all-too-often caused it to lose its way.
While the process cannot come fast enough for many people, it is of its very nature a slow, arduous task. No one ever promised an Apocalypse will accomplish all within a few short years. The process can stretch on for decades. But in the end Mankind can be transformed into a better, wiser race. Along the way it will divest itself of some of the insanities that have haunted humans for far too long a time.
The Apocalyptic process of spiritual rebirth and the rediscovery of the roots of Mankind's innate abilities and powers will break the chains of fear and small-mindedness that have caused society to become infected with a cancer that's mostly self-inflicted.

Science and reawakened spirituality is shifting the world towards a future that will eventually benefit all men and women of goodwill. But the process is anathema to those that seek to pillage, conquer and subjugate others.
Medical marvels, miracles from the physics laboratory, exploration of the world's greatest mysteriesall await fruition on the other side of the Apocalypse.
As the veil is lifted more will see the glory of the shining Truths occulted by those that accumulated great power while attempting to crush the spirit of others.
Science will reveal the reality of other dimensions and realities. The nature of death may be discovered. Proof will emerge from the laboratories of the reality of Man's immortal existence and how every person is a part of the Cosmic All.
Much that's been considered paranormal or fringe science will begin to be recognized as valid science and incorporated into the growing repository of advancing human knowledge.
Apocalyptic revelations will lift humans from the cradle to their place in the universe.

A spiritual re-awakening and accounting
The Apocalypse brings renewal and fresh starts. All Truth will be revealed as the Cosmos is being cleansed and errors corrected, frauds revealed, injustices rectified.
Truths that were hidden will be revealed; Truths cannot be hidden any longer.
Mankind will change, a celestial accounting take place, because the moral values will change.
For example, fiat money is immoral because it's not right to charge someone interest on money created from nothing. Money is an invention and abstract that represents a value for a value: a good for another good, or service for another service. Fiat money is valueless and has all the value of The Wizard of Oz's smoke and mirrors.
It's even more immoral to raise interest rates and foreclose on property with valueless banknotes that people trade amongst themselves with winks and nods.
World leaders, including Obama, will be outed because they haven't told the Truth.
The Truth about extraterrestrials will finally be revealed: they're already here among us.
For millennia humans have sought nirvana, a virtual paradise on Earth. That is a fantasy that can never be for it flies in the face of the nature of Man.
But that fact does not lesson the ability or greatness of a human's quest to reach beyond his or her self. Nor does it negate the ability to master the inner self and by doing so enable greater wisdom, more freedom, astounding success, and ultimate life fulfillment.

As the spirit awakes and seeks balance with the material, the human adventure will accelerate. Eventually, the mind will create in reality all it can envision, and even then the stars await.
Beyond the stars lies greater Truths and beyond those Truths are still more.
The Apocalypse is here. Do not fear it. Embrace it.

The MoveOn.org group of Jersey city New Jersey held a  "Fair Taxes for the 1%" rally in Journal Square in Jersey City on Tuesday, April 17, 2012
MoveOn.org protesters gathered there at noon toting signs and shouting chants that included “This is what democracy looks like! We are the 99 percent!”The group was there to protest bank bailouts and claimed that Wells Fargo, a corporate symbol of the richest 1 percent in the nation, hasn’t paid any taxes in three years.
A majority of the protesters were students at St. Peter’s College in Jersey City and were urged to attend by the Rev. David Stump, of the college, who organized the rally.
Michael Angelo Bosch works backstage at the Broadway production “Mama Mia!” and was also there and held a speech:
Michael Angelo Bosch speaks...

There are many untold stories of regular hard working families nationwide suffering of their homes being foreclosed on because of malicious mob type tactics forced upon them by the banking industry and mortgage companies involved by selling these unsuspected victims false hope and a lie and labeling the snake oil A PIECE OF THE AMERICAN DREAM"
These banks and mortgage companies involved knew these mortgages weren't going to hold but out of GREED they took advantage of these uneducated families and took them for a ride, uneducated in the sense that they didn't understand banking policies fine print mortgage contracting or procedures but believed these so-called RESPECTFUL PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCED BUSINESS people and signed up for a piece of the AMERICAN DREAM.
Now if we rob a bank we're called crooks but if the banks rob us it's called business"
To date no real JUSTICE came out of all  this  and with regard to the banking bail outs these big banks need to pay back the money they stole and not just a percentage but the full amount with interest and while we're at it these big banks need to pay their share of taxes as well!!
We the 99% are tired of these lope holes and free passes these big banks companies or 1 %ers receive while we pay more taxes than Kellog's got corn flakes and everything around us keep going up except out salaries "
WE THE PEOPLE will not allow this type of shake down or squeeze to continue any longer "
WE THE 99% with people power
with people dollars as consumers and with our votes united as ONE can make a difference so STAND UP STAND STRONG and STAND TOGETHER and remember....

OK with all the facts on George Zimmerman being a ticking time bomb and fired from two security companies for being too aggressive and tempermental with his past domestic issues and violent temper picking up a drunk girl at a party and kicking her out causing her to bruise her ankle and his friends calling him an out of control  Dr. Jeckyle  & Mr. Hyde with with a bad temper   his past criminal record of assault & battery on a police officer and resisting arrest 46 previous bogus calls on black youths all unfounded and without merit shows he was a racist beget and his family former judges with political ties which explains why there was attempts to clean and cover this all up by the police and now  the funeral director saying that there were no signs of a fight or struggle no bruises nor blood stains anywhere on the body but the hole in the chest of Trayvon leads them to believe that there was no fight or reason of self defense like Zimmerman first claimed and also the police and Zimmerman claim that he had a bloody nose or broken nose plus a gash in the back of Zimmerman's head and that he was bleeding from the back of his head was all fabricated lies when the video tape surfaced of the police bringing Zimmerman in for questioning and it clearly shows no signs of Zimmerman having cuts bruises blood etc and if the EMT's cleaned him up at the scene where are the band aids or patches?? NOTHING....more & more evidence every day shows that Zimmerman his family and the police lied and are trying desperatly to cover this up even going as far as trying to label the dead boy a gang member  and drug dealer to smear  his name and image ,, WE THE PEOPLE..parents and grand parents neighbors  American citizens of all races and ages men & woman are tired of this constant blatant disregard of human life largely because of racial profiling , How many more Trayvon Martin's Ramarley Graham. Or Sean Bell. Or Oscar Grant. Or Amadou Diallo. Or Emmett Till. Or the Scottsboro Boys.have to die before we say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!  We call on every community in every city all across America To OCCUPY THE HOOD wearing hoodies and set up a NATIONWIDE RALLY demanding the IMMEDIATE arrest of George Zimmerman while also pushing to repeal change upgrade or stop  the STOP & FRISK and STAND YOUR GROUND laws which serve nothing but to single out target and profile   young minorities"

Apparently now wearing a hoodie and running or walking  home or joggiing is against the law or dangerious to your health if your a young minority and because of this a young man 17 year old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed last month in Sanford Florida by a volunteer neighborhood watch men George Zimmerman who claims  he was out on Neighborhood Watch patrol, saw a suspicious youth and followed the boy. Trayvon was killed as  he walked to his father's home in a gated community while apparently chatting on a cellphone with his 16-year-old girlfriend when he was confronted  and then killed .he went to a nearby 7-11 for the snack, returning home on foot through the gated neighborhood while wearing a hoodie

So to recap Martin was spotted by 28-year-old George Zimmerman, a white Hispanic Neighborhood Watch volunteer, who called police and reported someone acting "suspiciously." Authorities promised to respond, after cautioning him not to pursue the young man, which was advice Zimmerman immediately ignored. Zimmerman got out of his car, pursued Martin, confronted him, shot and killed him -- and then insisted he'd acted in self-defense. so if you are a young minority teen wearing a hoodie and carrying skittles and ice tea as your weapon of choice then you are considered a threat and danger to society and security people or police have the right to kill you??!!....WHERE ARE OUR PRIORITIES ??? This is not an isolated incident this kind of SH___ happens to young moniroties especially blacks far to often and we as American citizens need to demand JUSTICE and force laws to change like the STOP & FRISK.
And here's the worst part: the Sanford Police Department swallowed his lame excuse -- hook, line, and sinker. They consider the case closed, they say, because they find no evidence to contradict Zimmerman's claim of self-defense.
No evidence? How about this? Martin was walking and carrying only an iced tea and a bag of candy. Zimmerman was driving his car and armed with a 9-millimeter handgun. Martin weighed 140 pounds. Zimmerman weighs 250 pounds. Martin had no criminal record. Zimmerman was charged in July 2005 with resisting arrest with violence and battery on an officer. Plus, as reported in the Miami Herald, neighbors reported that Zimmerman was "fixated on crime and focused on young, black males." He'd called police 46 times since January 2011 to report similar "suspicious activity."

When Martin, an unarmed black teenager, was shot in Florida late last month, he was carrying the candy and wearing a hooded sweatshirt. Wednesday, his style of dress inspired a “Million Hoodie March” in New York City, where hundreds rallied to honor Martin and call for the arrest of George Zimmerman, who shot him.
Martin’s supporters believe his death was racially motivated; Zimmerman and his family say it was not. Supporters point to a call to police from Zimmerman just before the shooting, during which Zimmerman said he saw a “suspicious” man wearing a hoodie. That man was Martin. Hundreds of people on Wednesday uploaded pictures of themselves wearing hoodies, with captions like: “Am I suspicious enough?”The hoodie has had a long and tortured history, long before Trayvon Martin. But let’s start with him, and then rewind backwards.
One question at the center of the Trayvon Martin debate is: Would this have happened if the hoodie-wearing teenager was white? Michael Skolnik, editor of Global Grind, doesn’t think so:
“I will never look suspicious to you. Even if I have a black hoodie, a pair of jeans and white sneakers on...in fact, that is what I wore yesterday...I still will never look suspicious. No matter how much the hoodie covers my face or how baggie my jeans are, I will never look out of place to you... And I certainly will never get ‘stopped and frisked.’  I will never look suspicious to you, because of one thing and one thing only.  The color of my skin.  I am white.”Before Martin, hoodies have had a mostly positive association in recent years. They’ve become signifiers of pride, with high school kids wearing their school names or mascots emblazoned across their hooded sweatshirts. They’ve become fashion symbols, like when Ben Affleck and Matt Damon famously wore hoodies under dress suits in the 1999 movie “Dogma.” And they’ve become the modern version of getting “pinned” by a boy; for a high school girl, it means the relationship is serious when a guy gives you his hoodie.
In the 1970s, the hoodie wasn’t seen that way. Before hip hop dress translated into mainstream fashion, it was associated by some with criminal intent. The New York Times’ Denis Wilson wrote of the hoodie in the 70s:
Hip-hop trendsetters used the hoodie also to cloak and isolate themselves, and lent it a sinister appeal... The sweatshirt hood can work much like a cobra hood, put up to intimidate others. But even more important is its ability to create a shroud of anonymity. This came in handy for at least two types of people operating in hip-hop’s urban breeding ground: graffiti writers and so-called stick-up kids, or muggers. Wearing a hoodie meant you were keeping a low profile, and perhaps up to something illegal.When the hoodie was first produced in the U.S., 40 years before this, it wasn’t associated with criminals or rap stars. It was simply utilitarian — worn mostly by laborers working in freezing temperatures. As Wilson points out in the The Times, there is a reason the boxer in the film “Rocky” wears a hoodie as he hits a bloody carcass in a freezing meat locker.
But far before the hoodie began its torturous history in America, and far before it was associated with an allegedly race-based crime, it was worn by another subset of people — Medieval monks.
The hoodie’s original inspiration is from the long decorative hoods these monks in Europe wore.
A Facebook page created recently entitled “Monks wear hoods — How often do they knife people?” attempts to make the same point as those who participated in the Million Hoodie March.
“Want to get the message out there that not everyone who wears a hoodie is an assassin,”
