●The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes.
●Austerity is the government’s method for widening the gap between rich and poor, which ultimately leads to civil disorder.
●Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.
●To survive long term, a monetarily non-sovereign government must have a positive balance of payments.
●Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.
●The penalty for ignorance is slavery.
●Everything in economics devolves to motive.
Here is how the Freedom of Information act is handled in the land of the free:
Bin Laden Raid Records Shielded From Public In Secret Move
RICHARD LARDNER JULY 8, 2013
Adm. William McRaven, the nation’s top special operations commander ordered military files about the Navy SEAL raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout to be purged from Defense Department computers and sent to the CIA, where they could be more easily shielded from ever being made public.
CIA agency spokesman Preston Golson said it is “absolutely false” that records were moved to the CIA to avoid the legal requirements of the Freedom of Information Act.
I believe Golson. He is government. Government is truthful. Government is truthful. Government is truthful.
Secretly moving the records allowed the Pentagon to tell The Associated Press that it couldn’t find any documents inside the Defense Department that AP had requested more than two years ago, and could represent a new strategy for the U.S. government to shield even its most sensitive activities from public scrutiny.
Another secrecy strategy? How many strategies to keep us in the dark, does this government need? (I’d give you the answer, but it’s a secret.)
The records transfer was part of an effort by McRaven to protect the names of the personnel involved in the raid.
Someone please send a black marker to the government, so they could redact the names. Apparently sequester has cut their black marker supply.
Under federal rules, transferring government records from one executive agency to another must be approved in writing by the National Archives and Records Administration. The Archives was not aware of any request from the U.S. Special Operations Command to transfer its records to the CIA, spokeswoman Miriam Kleiman said.
Hey, rules are for fools. We don’t follow rules. We are the government. Trust us.
The Federal Records Act would not permit agencies “to purge records just on a whim,” said Dan Metcalfe, who oversaw the U.S. government’s compliance with the Freedom of Information Act. “I don’t think there’s an exception allowing an agency to say, ‘Well, we didn’t destroy it. We just deleted it here after transmitting it over there.’ High-level officials ought to know better.”
See, they didn’t intentionally hide this stuff from the public. It was sort of an accident, and those naughty boys “ought to know better.”
In the days after bin Laden’s death, the White House falsely said bin Laden was armed and even firing at the SEALs, misidentified which of bin Laden’s sons was killed and incorrectly said bin Laden’s wife died in the shootout.
The Defense Department told the AP in March 2012 it could not locate any photographs or video taken during the raid or showing bin Laden’s body, could not find any images of bin Laden’s body on the USS Carl Vinson, could not find any death certificate, autopsy report or results of DNA identification tests for bin Laden, or any pre-raid materials discussing how the government planned to dispose of bin Laden’s body if he were killed.
Other than that, the government has been completely open and honest with us — oh, with maybe a couple little white lies, for our own good.
President Obama has pledged to make his administration the most transparent in U.S. history.
Actually, it is becoming transparent. We all are beginning to see right through Obama and his pledges.

10 Steps to Economic Misery: (Click here:)
1. Maintain or increase the FICA tax..
2. Spread the myth Social Security, Medicare and the U.S. government are insolvent.
3. Cut federal employment in the military, post office, other federal agencies.
4. Broaden the income tax base so more lower income people will pay.
5. Cut financial assistance to the states.
6. Spread the myth federal taxes pay for federal spending.
7. Allow banks to trade for their own accounts; save them when their investments go sour.
8. Never prosecute any banker for criminal activity.
9. Nominate arch conservatives to the Supreme Court.
10. Reduce the federal deficit and debt
No nation can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth. Monetary Sovereignty: Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia.
Two key equations in economics:
1. Federal Deficits – Net Imports = Net Private Savings
2. Gross Domestic Product = Federal Spending + Private Investment and Consumption – Net Imports
