I clicked here from the

I clicked here from the "Chess" post and it is actually a perfect example of how Chess relates to politics. This is a genius move btw.

By putting pressure on a foreign automaker like Mercedes to do a full investigation it pits the car manufacturer's goals of proving their vehicles are safe against whatever pressure the gov. might put on them to keep the incident covered up. Mercedes now has an incentive to prove there was some kind of foul play to avoid costly recalls or bad press. (Germans are dead serious about their engineering) It is even better that they are a foreign company, if it was GM (Government Motors) it would be much easier to manipulate the data. Germany is not too keen on the US right now due to the Gold mixup so this could help pull weight behind the investigation.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

Geography will win

They can make many parts of the Earth stop thinking by putting lead into them, but they cannot make all of them stop thinking before they decide that "authority" is exactly that, imaginary in scare quotes, the scare being the fear they put into you saying if you don't give them your attention (and you purse) then bad things will happen from an external aggressor.

But it's generally that internal aggressor that takes the wealth and lives of the people (through taxation and warfare). And these days of spinning our solar system through a higher-energy cloud means we're all waking up.

There's no way to stop this. Even though several people are dying -- Aaron Swartz, Michael Hastings, and others are in prison or on the run, and there are those that we haven't even heard about. And they could gruesomely murder those of us that discuss their crimes. Oh well, I still believe I have freedom of speech and I think those crimes should meet justice. There may or may not be a protector watching over us, and there has definitely been some evil succeeding in the world in the past, but I have hope for the American spirit that this evil that currently befalls our nation will not remain.

But I'll be sure to purchase a car made before 2000. Just in case this post puts me on that list.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

This idea needs legs

This is the type of thing that can be done from home too. So we have no excuse here

Excellent Idea!

Free Market and truth in action!
