“The Revolt Begins”

From a novel  by Lana M. Harrigan

(Note: this is an extended excerpt from a story of the Pueblo revolt of 1680 against the Spanish.  The revolt, which extended across more than a dozen Indian villages simultaneously, stunned the Spanish into hasty retreat back to Mexico. )

“Trail at Acoma Pueblo, ca. 1882-85,” Ben Wittick (Photographer)

This excerpt from K’atsina: A Novel of Rebellion takes place on the eve of the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. Aurelio—whose grandmother was Spanish and Catholic—meets his foster brother, Diego, at his Acoma home. Diego, an angry young man with Apache and Spanish parentage, has been plotting a revolt with the leader Po-pé against everything Spanish.

“A runner will arrive,” Diego began, his strident voice the only sound in Mauharots. “Around his waist will be a knotted yucca cord…

That is our proof, our signal. Each day when a knot is untied we shall know how many days remain. When the cord no longer has a single knot, that will be the day to carry out the sacred plan. To every village a runner will go; every village will have a knotted cord. On the appointed day every village in this land will rise!

…Aurelio hoped beyond hope that the knotted cord would not arrive, but early one morning he saw the runner enter the village, the rope tied around his waist. Only two knots remained…

The whole world changed.

    The key to this story is the way they let all the villages know when and where to start the revolt. Some kind of signal will be necessary for Patriots as we now take the actions to clean this mess up.

    Interesting interview with independent candidate running for Governor in CA. She addresses openly and head-on Obama’s eligibility/in-eligibility question and wants to see his real birth certificate, not the forged one he is passing around town.

    need to get this out to many as possible:


    The Blogmocracy

    HB 1388 PASSED

    Whether you are an Obama fan, or not, EVERYONE IN THE U.S. needs to know….

    Something happened… H.R. 1388 was passed, behind our backs. You may want to read about it.. It wasn’t mentioned on the news… just went by on the ticker tape at the bottom of the CNN screen.

    Obama funds $20M in tax payer dollars to immigrate Hamas Refugees to the USA . This is the news that didn’t make the headlines…

    By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the expenditure of $20.3 million in “migration assistance” to the Palestinian refugees and “conflict victims” in Gaza .

    The “presidential determination,” which allows hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States , was signed and appears in the Federal Register.

    Few on Capitol Hill, or in the media, took note that the order provides a free ticket replete with housing and food allowances to individuals who have displayed their overwhelming support to the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the parliamentary election of January 2006.

    Now we learn that he is allowing thousands of Palestinian refuges to move to, and live in, the US at American taxpayer expense.

    These important, and insightful, issues are being “lost” in the blinding bail-outs and “stimulation” packages.

      I had heard about this before. I thought they were being ‘resettled’ somewhere in New Jersey. That and the fact that he is lessening restrictions on people from Pakistan and other terrorist countries so that they become citizens quicker. That is how the latest Times Square bomber got to be a citizen when there are so many people who truly love America and are way down the ladder on being accepted. While he is sticking the knife into Israel’s back, he is helping those from Hamas. Why does Obama not care for our safety and purposely bring people here who have grudges against this country (he and Michelle, #1 and #2) and potentially wish to do us harm?

  4. 7 heather May 12, 2010 at 2:08 pm

    QL-He announced quite a while ago that he was going to do this. Since I had not heard or read anymore about it, I thought he had just done it. I guess it really doesn’t matter if he just did it then or now–it is still unwelcome by the citizens of the US.

    Remember you pal Hill and Bill–they did it with the immigrants from Bosnia. They were brought here and given hundreds of thousands of dollars to restart their lives anywhere is the US.

    When is this going to stop? Lindsey Graham today said he would vote for his SCOTUS knowing that she is a commie–what the hell. The people is SC better vote that traitor out in Nov.

    DRK is right, we need a plan as to where and what to get this started now. We cannot waste anymore time. But we do need to know that we won’t get trampled by his people.

    Kagan on SCOTUS would be the nail in the coffin. We need to be proactive NOW.

    • 9 susan h May 13, 2010 at 8:31 am

      Andy Martin is putting out there that Kagan is a pawn of Goldman Sachs and has been paid huge sums by them to be their advisor/consultant for several years. By putting her on the S.C. they can challenge whatever lawsuits come down against them and they literally have a “plant” to vote their way.

    QL- Factcheck (yes, I KNOW I KNOW) has debunked this, for what it is or is not worth.


  7. 11 ladysforest May 12, 2010 at 5:24 pm

    I think a good place for us all to really start (or begin again) is with this:

    make a FOIA request of your Secretary of State regarding how they determined BHO was qualified to be on your states election ballot.

    P&E has an article up today about this. I am sure that this is one of those overlooked avenues used by our elected officials to slide obama onto the ballot, most of us here are aware of this.

    This was very clever and causes everything to be (appear) very official without really having been investigated or confirmed by what would be considered the normal channels for you or I.

    Nancy P. could potentially be taken apart with this.

      Kentucky Secretary of State, Trey Grayson, running for senate against Rand Paul (and is behind in the polls) sent me a response to my ‘elector delegates action’ that it isn’t his JOB……he only has ‘ministerial’ duties…….and he wants to be MY senator??

  8. 13 heather May 12, 2010 at 10:10 pm

    OT-Assisting Jensen in his defense of Lakin is a very experienced senior member of the Army’s Judge Advocate General’s corps.

    So, along with LTC Lakin’s attorney he will also have a JAG Officer! This is great news! So it seems that the JAG has to believe in this case as well in order to defend him to the max!

    I am so glad that he will have the Jag Officer behind him.

    This is open to the public and the media.

    Hopefully all of the others who didn’t have standing will all be called to testify here.

    He needs to bring out the dual citizenship as for not being a NBC.

      This news came silently across a ticker tape on CNN. They passed it behnd closed doors in the middle of the night and did not disclose. Doesn’t he own CNN too? Or Okra does.

      I just got done listening to your radio show drkate (albeit not live). I must say it was inspiring to hear you say that we are giving away our secrets on blogs. I’m all typed out too especially knowing they are peeking. With that said I see the need for the webinar even more than I did yesterday. I’m 100% behind the clandestine web meetings. Very good idea. NNNancy is right. You have the best ideas. Your rant is mild compared to mine. I get so sick to my stomach over all of this. Yes we’ll see what good comes out of this evilness won’t we? Imagine that, they really pretend they are helping the poor by wanting to install socialism when the poor are the ones who will get the shaft and the PiglosiOcommies will take “the money and run.” No one gets away with evil or trickery. No one. Tic Toc. Looks like he’s building up his karma to backfire tsunami style.
      Can’t wait. These vultures have a boatload of crap due to them and it’s building. This includes John Kerry too.

    We HAVE to get Obummer and his gang of gangsters out of there VERY soon or we are all doomed. We need for all of these laws which they have passed and executive orders and appointments to be null and void.

    Tomorrow Pastor Manning’s trial begins! YEA! I am really counting on this rial making the big difference and booting him right into a jail cell. Does anyone know if there is going to be a way for people to listen to it while it is going on? Are they going to podcast it or something?

    • 21 JJ May 13, 2010 at 9:54 am

      I asked that weeks ago……a commenter on CW website emailed me with this information…
      –it will not be aired on radio or tv(surprise!!)
      –the intent is to bring as many supporters to Harlem/NY as possible
      –a commenter I am familiar with on other blogs promised to keep me informed of events as they happen
      –I haven’t heard anything, but emailed again to Manning the amount of support and prayers coming his way

  12. 22 heather May 13, 2010 at 9:51 am

    DRK-maybe the 9 will take the deal–it comes with 100k fine and prison time. I would say the 9 did nothing wrong, IN MY BOOK!! lol

    QL-I agree-I am sure they are reading all the blogs and know our every move. But we have no other way to communicate and if he takes this away or taxes us (which is illegal) then we have nothing.

    nnn-Dr. Manning is under the protection of God — for the truth will prevail.

    Also glad that JAG is helping to defend LTC Lakin-this means that the Jag officer has to believe Lakin. I also wondered throughout this if the army is using Lakin as their scapegoat to outst him………….remember Ollie North and the Iran contraband–how he was used?

    • 23 drkate May 13, 2010 at 9:54 am

    IMO Lingle was “got to”. You either play along or you get “outed”. That’s the disgusting way this administration works. I often have said when these “very odd” people Obummer appoints take their position, that Obummer has them by the short hairs…they either dance to his tune or get exposed. (Think of Massa.)

  15. 27 heather May 13, 2010 at 1:25 pm

      Or threatened or intimidated in some way. Everyone has a family who they want to protect, either physically or otherwise. IMO, there is no length Obama would not go to in order to achieve his aims, including hurting someone or their family members. Remember the movie the Godfather, the horse’s head in the guy’s bed who wouldn’t play along. That scene reminds me of Obama…

    There is nothing that will stop him from his agenda–I just heard a snipet of him speaking somewhere–saying we are right on track and almost to where we need to be.

    As if none of us knows whats he talking about-surely he knows we all know.

    Just look what he did to his grandmother—she was alive when he got to Hawaii and dead when he left. And if this sounds like I am placing quilt of him–well then, if the shoe fits!

    This is beyond out of control. Yes we need impeachment started – but others have said that he can’t be impeached if he is illegal to begin with–so let’s make this an arrest warrent, no trial, a conviction and prison for life. It would have to include his wife and mother in law-since they are aiding and abetting a known criminal along with the entire congress and everyone of HIS administration. (as he likes to cram down our throats)

    Everything he has said is a lie and the healthcare bill is torture–my dr today said we are all screwed–big time and that he is a muslim—and I of course agreed with him. I do not know 1 single dr that even likes him–they all hate him and want him gone. I want him gone……………

They don’t take “no” for an answer when they believe there is a better solution. They go without so their family can have. They go to the doctor with a frightened friend. They love unconditionally. They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart. Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They’ll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning. They bring joy, hope and love. They have compassion and ideas. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital things to say and everything to give.

    I believe Mike Pence knows this is totally against our constitution.

    And it is and we want our money back!


    Republicans introduce bill to prevent Euro bailout
    After a week of preemptive attacks on a possible IMF bailout of Greece, Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) introduces the European Bailout Protection Act, aimed at preventing taxpayer dollars from going to a rescue plan.

    “This legislation would require that countries like Greece cut spending and put their own fiscal house in order,” says Pence, backed up by other members of the House GOP, “instead of looking to the United States for a bailout. We face record unemployment and a debt crisis of our own, and American taxpayers should not be forced to bear the risk for nations that have avoided making tough choices.”

    The full release is below the fold, with the detail that the bill “does not permanently prohibit the IMF from lending” to the troubled counties. Nevertheless, Ezra Klein is not a fan of this proposal.

    (Thanks to my colleague Ben Pershing.)

    U.S. Congressman Mike Pence, Chairman of the House Republican Conference, joined Conference Vice-Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Committee Rep. Jerry Lewis, Rep. Jeb Hensarling, and Rep. Kay Granger in introducing legislation today to stop U.S. tax dollars from being used by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for bailouts for European countries. Rep. Pence released the following statement today as the European Bailout Protection Act was introduced:

    “The American people are fed up with taxpayer-funded bailouts and deserve to know we are bailing out Greece and possibly other European countries. If the Obama Administration has its way, the U.S. will contribute to a nearly trillion dollar bailout of European countries with economic crises that are a direct result of wasteful government spending.

    “This legislation would require that countries like Greece cut spending and put their own fiscal house in order, instead of looking to the United States for a bailout. We face record unemployment and a debt crisis of our own, and American taxpayers should not be forced to bear the risk for nations that have avoided making tough choices.


    The European Bailout Protection Act would:

    1) Prohibit any funds that have yet to be drawn by the IMF from being used to provide financing to any EU countries until all EU nations are in compliance with the debt to GDP ratio requirement in their own collective growth pact.

    2) Require the Treasury Secretary to oppose any IMF loans to EU nations until all EU countries are in compliance with their debt to GDP ratio requirement.

    The bill does not permanently prohibit the IMF from lending to these nations; it simply prohibits the U.S. from participating in the proposed European bailout.

    Obama Finds Legal Way Around The 2nd. Amendment and Uses It.

    The Full Article Here
    Subject: Obama Takes First Step in Banning All Firearms
    On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a Plan to Ban All Firearms in the United States

    On Wednesday the Obama administration took its first major step in a plan to ban all firearms in the United States. The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the US Government signs these international treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms.

    The Obama administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before US citizens even understand what has happened. Obama can appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation (in the United States) that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is committing the US to international treaties and foreign gun control laws. Does that mean Obama is telling the truth? What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress. We will wake up one morning and find that the United States has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public. We will wake up another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership. And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment.

    This is not a joke nor a false warning. As sure as government health care will be forced on us by the Obama administration through whatever means necessary, so will gun control.

    U.S. reverses stance on treaty to regulate arms trade

    Arshad Mohammed
    Wed Oct 14, 2009 11:56pm EDT

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto.

    The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush’s administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better.

    U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the United States would support the talks as long as the negotiating forum, the so-called Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty, “operates under the rules of consensus decision-making.”

    “Consensus is needed to ensure the widest possible support for the Treaty and to avoid loopholes in the Treaty that can be exploited by those wishing to export arms irresponsibly,” Clinton said in a written statement.

    While praising the Obama administration’s decision to overturn the Bush-era policy and to proceed with negotiations to regulate conventional arms sales, some groups criticized the U.S. insistence that decisions on the treaty be unanimous.

    “The shift in position by the world’s biggest arms exporter is a major breakthrough in launching formal negotiations at the United Nations in order to prevent irresponsible arms transfers,” Amnesty International and Oxfam International said in a joint statement.

    However, they said insisting that decisions on the treaty be made by consensus “could fatally weaken a final deal.”

    “Governments must resist US demands to give any single state the power to veto the treaty as this could hold the process hostage during the course of negotiations. We call on all governments to reject such a veto clause,” said Oxfam International’s policy adviser Debbie Hillier.

    The proposed legally binding treaty would tighten regulation of, and set international standards for, the import, export and transfer of conventional weapons.

    Supporters say it would give worldwide coverage to close gaps in existing regional and national arms export control systems that allow weapons to pass onto the illicit market.

    Nations would remain in charge of their arms export control arrangements but would be legally obliged to assess each export against criteria agreed under the treaty. Governments would have to authorize transfers in writing and in advance.

    The main opponent of the treaty in the past was the U.S. Bush administration, which said national controls were better. Last year, the United States accounted for more than two-thirds of some $55.2 billion in global arms transfer deals.

    Arms exporters China, Russia and Israel abstained last year in a U.N. vote on the issue.

    The proposed treaty is opposed by conservative U.S. think tanks like the Heritage Foundation, which said last month that it would not restrict the access of “dictators and terrorists” to arms but would be used to reduce the ability of democracies such as Israel to defend their people.

    The U.S. lobbying group the National Rifle Association has also opposed the treaty.

    A resolution before the U.N. General Assembly is sponsored by seven nations including major arms exporter Britain. It calls for preparatory meetings in 2010 and 2011 for a conference to negotiate a treaty in 2012.

    Yes, everyone must pray for Dr. Manning and for a fruitful outcome. It’s our only hope at the present time, and as pointed out by .

    QL~ I’m not dogging you!:-) And yes, I know about factcheck and its owners and its involvement with BC “story”, but I was pointing out that this item was not current news, per se. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    Again, God’s speed, Dr. Manning.

    One of Obama’s former addresses
    1603 RUCKER Rd., Apharetta, Ga. 30009
    is a terrorist cell safe house in GA

    • 63 Quantum Leap May 15, 2010 at 12:18 am

      What? 😯

      • 64 terminu May 15, 2010 at 12:29 am

        A poster named medical on apuzzo’s site said the addresses that were revealed as part of OBama’s social security number defrauding included one which is a known safe-house for jihad radicals in Georgia, Apharetta Georgia, nearby is a big Islamic complex (5 acre).

        Medical says Obama’s a terrorist, pure and simple.

        • 65 terminu May 15, 2010 at 12:45 am

          The “safe house” is very close to the recently established five acre “Islamic Center of North Fulton”, 1255 RUCKER Rd., Alpharetta, GA 30009 (see road map on “Google Earth” and note proximity).


          • 66 terminu May 15, 2010 at 12:54 am

            Here’s the story on the fake SSN and you can see one of the addresses is Georgia:

            Private investigator Neil Sankey, using Intelius, Lexis Nexis, Choice Point and other public records, found around 25 Social Security numbers connected with Barack Obama’s name.

            However, it may not be as many as 25, since Sankey also searched using closely related names such as: “Barak Obama,” “Batock Obama,” “Barok Obama,” and “Barrack Obama.” There may very well be some Kenyans living in America with the same last name and a similar first name. In any case, I will exclude these records for the purpose of this research and focus only on names spelled exactly like his name.

            Moreover, we can verify many of the Social Security numbers as valid since they’re connected to addresses at which we know Obama resided. Needless to say, there are also a slew of address and social security numbers connected to addresses in states that Obama has no known connection to.

            In Obama’s home state, Illinois, Sankey tracked down 16 different addresses for a Barack Obama or a Barack H. Obama, of which all are addresses he was known to have lived at. Two Social Security numbers appear for these addresses, one beginning with 042, and one starting 364.

            In California, where Obama attended Occidental College, there are six addresses listed for him, all within easy driving distance of the college. However, there are three Social Security numbers connected to these addresses, 537 and two others, each beginning with 999, which are not valid SSNs.

            There are no addresses listed in New York where he attended Columbia University, but there is one listed for him in nearby Jackson, NJ, with a Social Security number beginning with 485.

            In Massachusetts — where Obama attended Harvard Law School — we find three addresses, all using the 042 Social Security number. After Obama was elected to the United States Senate in 2005, he moved into an apartment at 300 Massachusetts Ave NW; the Social Security number attached to that address is the 042 one. Yet, three years later, Obama used a different Social Security number for an address listed as: 713 Hart Senate Office Building. This was the address of his United States Senate office. This Social Security number began with 282 and was verified by the government in 2008.

            This mystery grows even stranger as other addresses and Social Security numbers for Barack Obama appear in a dozen other states not known to be connected to him. Again, I am excluding those records names not spelled exactly like his name.

            Tennessee, one address with a Social Security number beginning with 427

            Colorado, one address, with a Social Security number beginning with 456.

            Utah, two addresses, with two Social Security numbers beginning with 901 and 799.

            Missouri has one address and one Social Security number beginning with 999.

            Florida has two addresses listed for his him, three if you count one listed as “Barry Obama.” One is connected to a Social Security number beginning with 762.

            In Georgia there are three addresses listed for him, all with different Social Security numbers: 579, 420, and 423.

            In Texas there are four different addresses listed for him, one is connected to Social Security number 675.

            There are two addresses listed for Barack Obama in Oregon and one address listed for him in the states of Wisconsin, Michigan, South Carolina, and Pennsylvania.

            All told, there are 49 addresses and 16 different Social Security numbers listed for a person whose name is spelled “Barack Obama.” In some cases, the middle initial “H” is listed. If you were to expand the search to include closely related names such as: “Barac,” “Barak,” and “Barrack” Obama, you would find more than a dozen additional addresses and Social Security numbers.

            Finally, the one Social Security number Obama most frequently used, the one beginning with 042, is a number issued in Connecticut sometime during 1976-1977, yet there is no record of Obama ever living or working in Connecticut. Indeed, during this time period Obama would have been 15-16 years old and living in Hawaii at the time.

            Extracted from an article by Steve Baldwin. Read the whole thing here . . .

            Susan Daniels, a second investigator filed an affidavit, with true and correct copies here, in the Barnett v. Obama case. Susan Daniels is a private investigator, licensed by the State of Ohio.

            In her affidavit, Daniels states that she has located Barack Obama’s Social Security Number. She states it was issued between 1977 and 1979 in the State of Connecticut. She states that it is the only Social Security Number Barack Obama ever used.

            The number assigned to Barack Obama “appears to be associated with someone born in the year 1890.”

    So moved and truly happy over the Stand Arizona has taken as respects the illegal sneaky squatters and lying usrpers in schools in their State. Brainwashing Busted.

    ~ That’s hate speech coming from a racist. oh well. God Bless Arizona and thank you!

    To witness the cruel islamic thinkers and their useful idiots on the East Coast (and everywhere) and watch the despicable treatment of the Americans in their own homeland makes me know one thing:

    The ugly winds have shifted. Los Angeles and Boston are boycotting their own Arizona? Thats pretty hateful.

    We are standing alone. Our president is either out golfing or saying something stupid. He’s just watching the cogs turn.

    How dare they?

    One thing is clear. It is the not taxpaying, community-providing American Citizen raising the ruckus. Its the native born and those that wish they were. Its the jihadis. (talk about HATE, they drip). We are being betrayed on every front. With treats of violence. And uncertain in not knowing where our Military stands. wow

    Its not profiling to recognize you from a mile. Its just the way it is. Being cognizant and identify what we observe in a split second is not profiling.

    It is an affront when you belligerantly shove your flag down our throats. Its rude. Its disrespectful. Its intolerable. Learn to speak English, its American. Not doing so is lazy and ignorant.

    Maybe the Mexicans and The Muslim Brotherhood can get a State together and all live happily after.

  38. 68 Papoose May 14, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    Oh, and one more thing. Do tell.

    Valerie Jarrett has no affinity to Iran, either.

    Just an advisor to your POS-TOTUS, thats all. Yeah, she’s eligible, too. what the hell? no biggie. move along.

    ~ Happy Weekend Taxpayers! ~ 🙂

  39. 69 Papoose May 14, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    Maybe if we demanded our States to reinstate by Law, our sovereignty… and were as brave as our Peoples in Arizona, we could also find the strength to tell the jihadists to stfu , as well.

    Hmmmm, maybe a simple Declaration is in Order. “Change” is unConstituional and its Hopeless. We need to reiterate in case anybody’s confused.

    Lets all take a minute and laugh out loud at Los Angeles and Boston. a real side splitter. The people that are pushing this agenda are traitors. Enslaving people and their minds and the coins in their pockets. Communists.

    Elena Kagan as a SCOTUS Justice is hilarious. 21st century.
    They want all of American to be a ghetto. Despicable.

    Ok, I think thats all~ laffing still.

    401(k)/IRA Nationalization *** Quietly Moves Forward *** The BIGGEST Scam
    May 11, 2010 03:13 PM EDT (Updated: May 12, 2010 01:06 PM EDT)

    Recent information from Restore The Republic has again raised the alarm regarding your 401k’s & IRA’s. The BIGGEST Scam was a previous warning. Please take note what is happening under the radar, as things of this nature notoriously do. You may not get another chance to get or take control of your money.

    I’ve already taken care of this and taken everything out so I have control of my own money. You should research and do what is best for you and your family. Having others control you money is very naive, especially the government. If you read the fine print, they OWN them already therefore make the rules/mandates and can change whenever they choose.

    Food storage, physical silver and gold are the best places for your money. Notice how the price has gone up as we printed more money to bail out Greece?

    Wealth protection has never been more critical.

    Elena Kagan as a SCOTUS Justice is hilarious.

    Kagan’s thesis has been released on redstate blog. It was all about socialism. She is a staunch supporter. Do these people really know what socialism really is????

    Goldman Sachs paid her $10,000 per day to be an advisor. One day per year. But, it didn’t have anything to do with global credit and banking.

    Of course not. They were planning the annual picnic.

    A Chinese e-net company named Alibabba scares the hell out of me. Especially knowing George Soros has like a boatload of stock in it as of 2009.

    Soetero claims to have a brother there in China, Mark. They do look alike, I admit. Warts and all. Wonder where Ruth Nidesand fits into this picture. hmmmmm why does the guy Mark write a bio and refuse to divulge his age or birthdate. My dear Mr. Watson, we must get together for pizza and beer. Soetero has a brother in Texas, too. Joseph. He’s also clandestine. Ndesandjo. Its all making sense now. David, the phantom brother is deceased. Fatal motorcycle accident one mysterious day.

    Mark, barry and Joseph are brothers. They are Irish triplets, so to speak. Yep. Thats it. Whose their Daddy? is he rich like me?

  44. 76 Papoose May 14, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    uhmmmmm hmmmm

    another bogus biographical book.

    Who are the Ndsandjos and from whence did their surname originate.
    Nidesand, perhaps? Nah.

    I told you, triplets.

    jo is some kabuki priest god, you know? Yep. There’s a story about a christian missionary priest evangelizing jo. I remember.

    Maybe we should be keeping an eye on what Chesa Boudin is writing these days.

    Sean Penn’s daddy Leo got busted during McCarthy. Just a little trivia.
