Add 15 more dead...they did another strike...

That makes it 27 dead in 3 days.

Incidentally...Bush authorized 52 drone strikes, Obama on the other hand...278 and counting.

Defeat the central government, stop buy government bonds!

Don't people realize that investing in U.S. government bonds is to invest against yourself? If anything invest your money in municipal bonds if some project strikes your interest.
It makes absolutely no sense to complain about big government and then turn around and invest in government bonds. People need to cut off the life support of the beast that is defeating our liberties.
Here is an article promoting government bonds.
"Buyers of Treasury bonds are usually not the small investor, rather large banks, mutual and pension funds, insurance companies and central banks of other countries. The fact that the most sophisticated investors are buying Treasury bonds reflects the sense of anxiety percolating in the financial markets."
Liberty minded people need to fight back!
If your bank invests in government bonds, withdraw your money, if you have mutual and pension funds invested in government bonds send a letter to management and threaten to cash out unless they dump government bonds, the same goes for insurance companies and others. It is difficult to prevent central banks of other countries from investing in U.S. government bonds, but i am sure a movement could be started to convince citizens of other countries to do so. I certainly don't want our central bank investing in other countries currencies. Bring down this giant by starving it.

Iehuv - The FED currently buys more than 1/2 the bonds

already. They bought over 70% one month this year. Whatever china and various other countries don't buy, the government either puts money in a bank and has them buy bonds or they just have the FED buy what they need to sell.

While I would still encourage people to follow your advice for personal and moral reasons, the percentage of bonds being bought by investors won't have any real effect on anything.

As far as 401k's, you can send all the letters you want but they will invest your money however they choose. (or however they are told to) The little form you fill out telling them where to invest your money is mostly for entertainment purposes.

Get out while you can.

You point out even more reasons why to divest from U.S. government bonds. If possible cash in the 401k,s and pay the penalty, better to take a slight loss than a total loss. Any investmentor in U.S. government bonds are going to be holding nothing but paper. The U.S. government is too big to fail, but who's going to bail it out? China has it's own problems and people can not depend on paper to save them. If anything invest in local government projects as they will have to pick up the pieces.

I cashed mine out just prior to the 2008 meltdown

They DID NOT want to give me my money. I had to fight them for weeks but eventually got it. I'd be surprised if you are even allowed to cash out your 401k anymore. I read not too long ago they were going to put new rules in place which made it impossible to get to your money before you retire...no matter what the penalty. If anyone has money in a 401k, call them tomorrow and tell them you want to get at your money and see what they say. I bet you will hang up pissed off.

Kill Them

Kill all against us the NeoCon spurred.

Eye for an Eye the People of the Book reply.

As the American watches his propaganda on the tube and salutes the military for protecting their truths.

Freedom we cry as we pay our taxes and die.

Hitler was evil, as the POTUS invades.

Paul screams the golden rule, let them be free, policing the world is not liberty.

Echos from the Mainstream Media come back ISOLATIONISM.

As the American watches his propaganda on the tube and wonders why the people of the world hate the U.S.A.

"Blessed are they who are

"Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness sake".
That surely is NOT us..and an unblessed nation can never survive.


How would we feel if Yemen was doing this to us?

Notice the word...

... "militants"... Nobel PEACE Prize laureate Obama defines a militant as any male over the age of 18 (if my memory serves me right). Why aren't the pro life Christians and their leaders protesting the killing of innocent people abroad by our government? If they are truly pro life, they would be appalled at this slaughter. Fact is, they are not. They are the worst hypocrites that walk on God's earth. "Life begins at conception, but end at at our borders."

I Frequently Bemoan this Hypocricy!

..."Life begins at conception, but end at at our borders."...That is awesome, permission to use this??

Germany had a Bonhoeffer...

... who paid for his stance with his life... we have no such Bonhoeffer... the Pharisees heading the Southern Baptists have so fervently sucked up to their favorite Mormon that Romney has welts all over his body. Got to wear long-sleeve shirts to hide it, but he doesn't mind. No gain without pain.

The quote won't be vaild much longer

Armed drones are flying in the US now. They would not be doing that unless they planned on one day using them.
