It’s New, But How Did They Know?

10 July, 2014

Greetings and thanks for stopping by The Countdown to see what’s new on the menu.

Today we have a 3 course meal designed for those who like to see a new twist on “old-fashioned” cooking techniques.

Our first appetizer is a light course consisting of wit and vinegar with a touch of salt:

 

 

I guess our profound ignorance has been going on for a very long time!

3 years ago we were labelled ‘conspiracy theorists’.

Now – these so-called theories are common knowledge..quotes from the past:

‘It was said’ – Mark Twain and others at their best.

In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm and three or more is a government.
John Adams

If you don’t read the newspaper you are uninformed, if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed.
Mark Twain

Suppose you were an idiot.  And suppose you were a member of government. But then I repeat myself.
Mark Twain

I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.
Winston Churchill

A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.
George Bernard Shaw

Foreign aid might be defined as a transfer of money from poor people in rich countries to rich people in poor countries.
Douglas Casey,  Classmate of Bill Clinton at Georgetown University

Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.
P…J. O’Rourke,  Civil Libertarian

Government is the great fiction, through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else.
Frederic Bastiat,  French economist(1801-1850)

I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.
Will Rogers

If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it’s free!
P…J. O’Rourke

In general, the art of government consists of taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other.
Voltaire   (1764)

Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you!
Pericles (430  B.C.)

No man’s life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session.
Mark Twain   (1866)

Talk is cheap…except when government does it.
Anonymous

The government is like a baby’s alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other.
Ronald Reagan

The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the taxidermist leaves the skin.
Mark Twain

There is no distinctly Native American criminal class…save government.
Mark Twain

What this country needs are more unemployed politicians.
Edward Langley,  Artist (1928-1995)

A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.
Thomas Jefferson

We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
Aesop

Our second course is our main meal – or maybe more importantly could affect our ‘next meals’…

“It’s not possible to interact with society in a meaningful way by not having a mobile phone. I think human implants are likely to go along a very similar route. It would be such a disadvantage to not have the implant that it essentially becomes not optional”.

Your initial reaction to this idea may be one of disbelief. There’s no way society would accept such a device. Why would anyone want to implant this in their body?

Consider for a moment where we are right now. For decades Americans rejected the notion that they would submit to being tracked or recorded.

Yet, just about every American now carries a mobile phone. They’re so prevalent, in fact, that many consider it a “right,” prompting the government to actually provide subsidies to those who can’t afford one on their own.

Embedded in every one of those phones is an RFID chip that can track our every movement via GPS or cell tower triangulation. Moreover, those microphones and cameras that come standard on every phone can be remotely activated by law enforcement surveillance systems, a capability that has existed since the early 2000′s.

But as intrusive as these devices are, they are accepted as the norm by billions of people world wide. Not only that, but no one had to “force” them on us. We are, it seems, the masters of our own enslavement. And we pay top dollar to have the best tracking device money can buy!

Granted, one can simply disconnect from “the grid” by throwing away their cell phone. But, the direction these new monitoring technologies are moving coupled with continued government expansion of surveillance suggests that microchip RFID technology will eventually be non-voluntary.

Michael Snyder of The Truth Wins asks What will you do when you can no longer buy or sell without submitting to biometric identification?

Our final course is another new treatment to an old recipe found in Revelations and other prophetical books:

VATICAN CITY (Worthy News)– Pope Francis created a controversy amongst Evangelicals this week, when he stated in his weekly address, that those who believe they can maintain a “personal” and “direct” relationship with Jesus Christ outside the “mediation of the Church” was “dangerous and harmful.”

In his weekly address from St. Peter’s Square, the Pope said, “No one becomes Christian on his or her own! Is that clear? No one becomes Christian by him- or herself.”

“Christians are not made in a laboratory. A Christian is part of a people who comes from afar. The Christian belongs to a people called the Church and this Church is what makes him or her Christian, on the day of Baptism, and then in the course of catechesis, and so on,” the Pontiff continued.

“We are able to live this journey not only because of others, but together with others. In the Church there is no ‘do it yourself’, there are no ‘free agents’,” the Pope added.
