Mitchell’s laws:
●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,
and the motive is the gap.

How are these seeming disparate articles ironically related?

Detroit’s Emergency Manager Shuts Off Water for Thousands of Homes; Is Your City Next?
By Joan Brunwasser

Detroit filed the largest Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy action in US history in July 2013.

The governance and access to billions of dollars in revenue flowing through the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) has become a major political football and economic prize.

This month, DWSD commenced an unprecedented mass water shutoff program targeting 150,000 accounts more than two months and $150 in arrears. Meanwhile, more than $30 million in commercial and industrial accounts goes uncollected.

The objective is to eliminate bad debt and make DWSD look better for purposes of active ongoing regionalization and privatization negotiations. A triumph of corporate property interests over fundamental human rights.

(The poor are) scrambling for water from family, neighbors, friends, whatever; trying to find new housing with water included, trying to keep the child welfare system from taking away their kids, trying to find a place to shower and use the toilet.

What’s more important: Human rights, social justice and protecting the Great Lakes with a sustainably funded water and sewer system at their geographic heart?

Or setting themselves up with a Wall Street-model smash-and-grab privatization operation to make a quick economic killing for some fast operators? They’re opting for the latter, and the hell with the people of Detroit who are in their way.

DWSD has been privatizing gradually for decades under Federal Court supervision; using major corporations like Infrastructure Management Group (IMG) and EMA Inc. to take over more and more of their core operation all the time. The emergency manager put out bids to privatize, which have been filed in secret.

The powerful suburban county executives, who will take over this incredibly important and lucrative system have said they favor privatization and don’t want the burden of running it in their low-tax jurisdictions.

I urge you to click this link Detroit’s Emergency Manager Shuts Off Water for Thousands of Homes; Is Your City Next? and read the entire article, to get the full flavor of the massive greed and evil that is destroying the people of Detroit.

Obama to ask for more than $2 billion in emergency funds to stem immigration influx
David Nakamura

The Obama administration, in a dramatic escalation of its border-control strategy, will seek more than $2 billion in emergency funds to help stem an influx of Central American women and children entering the country illegally, as well as new measures to more quickly deport those already here.

The administration will ask lawmakers to modify existing statutes to make it easier to return unaccompanied children to their home countries.

Escalation of enforcement is likely to be met with skepticism from immigration advocates, who have expressed concerns about the treatment and welfare of the children.

Said Kevin Appleby, migration policy director for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. “It could result in vulnerable children being sent back to real danger and possible harm or death.”

What these articles have in common is the human catastrophe taking place in America. At our border and in Detroit, poor children suffer, sicken and die, all for lack of compassion by America’s upper- and middle-income groups.

Children from Central America leave their families to escape grinding poverty and danger, to make the long perilous trip to safety and freedom in America, only to be drowned by a selfish America that says it has no room on our gigantic, half vacant raft.

Children in Detroit go dirty, thirsty and hungry, and will be taken from their parents, all for lack of water, because the bribed politicians and the greedy private sector, want a piece of a lucrative pie.

And the irony: That right-winger-in-liberal-clothing, the President who raised FICA and repeatedly has tried to cut Social Security, blithely asks Congress for $2 billion — not to ease the pain of the children, not to help solve the problems in Detroit, but to send children back to their misery and death — essentially to toss them off the raft into the wild ocean.

This President, who has deported more than any previous President, coldly wants to increase deportations.

This President, who at the click of a computer key, could allocate that $2 billion, or $20 billion, or $200 billion, at no cost to anyone, to take giant steps in solving these humanitarian crises. But he doesn’t click that key, because he and Congress have been bribed (via campaign contributions and promises of lucrative employment later) to widen the GAP between the rich and the rest.

When even a Democrat President lacks compassion and human kindness, you know that our once-great nation has lost its moral compass, and has descended into greed, meanness and heartless indifference.

Send the poor foreign children back to starve and die? Let the poor citizen children starve and die right here in America? For God’s sake, what is wrong with you, Mr. President?

To paraphrase Joseph Welch, “Have you no sense of decency, sir? President Obama, at long last, have you left no sense of decency?”

Monetary Sovereignty

Ten Steps to Prosperity:
1. Eliminate FICA (Click here)
2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D plus long term nursing care — for everyone (Click here)
3. Provide an Economic Bonus to every man, woman and child in America, and/or every state a per capita Economic Bonus. (Click here) Or institute a reverse income tax.
4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone. Click here
5. Salary for attending school (Click here)
6. Eliminate corporate taxes (Click here)
7. Increase the standard income tax deduction annually
8. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99% (Click here)
9. Federal ownership of all banks (Click here)

10. Tax the very rich (.1%) more, with higher, progressive tax rates on all forms of income. (Click here)


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

Monetary Sovereignty Monetary Sovereignty

Vertical gray bars mark recessions.

As the federal deficit growth lines drop, we approach recession, which will be cured only when the lines rise. Federal deficit growth is absolutely, positively necessary for economic growth. Period.

  1. Is there a heaven and a hell, and if so, how is the decision made as to who goes where? I say that if there is a heaven and a hell, then there is no need for any judge or condemnation. I say that we freely decide for ourselves. I say that we choose our own fate.

    For example, Rodger (above) mentions immigrants. This issue is like a partially filled glass of water. Either you see the glass as half empty or half full. Likewise, please click the link below, and watch the 90-second video about overcrowding in an immigrant detention center. There is no narration, just raw video.

    Either you see these people as invading cockroaches, or else you see them as your brothers and sisters, victimized by circumstance, and begging you for help. Either the video will make you feel disgusted (or indifferent) or else it will make you will feel like crying. Either you will be glad that these people are in prison, or you will long to take every one of them home with you.

    How you feel is your choice, as is your fate. Either you choose hate, and thereby choose to live in a savage world in which you will never be happy, no matter how much money and power you get, or else you choose love and compassion, in which case you will move toward a world where each person’s happiness consists of insuring the maximum possible happiness for others.

    Obama has chosen his world. So have most rich people, politicians, and anyone else whose attitude is “Screw you, I’ve got mine.”

    The billionaire “president” of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, took power in a coup. Poroshenko is known as the “Chocolate King” because he heads a confectionary empire called “Roshen.” Poroshenko gets his cocoa from plantations in the Ivory Coast (Africa) that use child labor, many of them slaves.

    Poroshenko has chosen his world.

    What world do you choose? Remember that indifference is a choice. You don’t have to do heroic acts. You don’t have to do anything at all. All you have to do is choose.

    Please watch the 90-secnd video…



    1. Regarding immigrants, Joe Arpaio, “America’s toughest sheriff,” wants the Pentagon to station troops all along the 1,989 mile border between the USA and Mexico, in order to “clean up this mess.” In fact, Arpaio wants US troops to enter Mexico to “get the job done.”

      Arpaio, 82, has been in office for 24 years, most of which his deputies did illegal “stop and frisk” operations against anyone who they thought looked Hispanic. Deputies pulled over Hispanic-looking drivers to “check their papers,” and also did many raids on workplaces. Ten months ago a federal judge ruled that Arpaio and his deputies were guilty of racial profiling, and ordered the unconstitutional practice to stop. The judge also required Arpaio’s deputies to have video cameras in their patrol vehicles. Arpaio is appealing the ruling.

      Regarding the dispatch of US troops into Mexico, Arpaio says, “Of course, you have to get the Mexican president to OK it. I would just go in there and have a few drinks with him and get the job done.”


      Arpaio says that Pentagon troops are needed because the Border Patrol is “too busy changing diapers to go after dope peddlers and illegal immigrants.” He says that because the US government ordered him to stop his racial profiling, the “Department of Justice is trying to put cuffs on me.”

      Arpaio eliminated meat from the “food” that he feeds to inmates in his jails, in order to save money.


      Arpaio says the influx of migrants from Central America is most likely a plot by Obama, “to generate controversy” in the hope that, “Congress would finally look at the situation or the president would start issuing executive orders.”


      Arpaio first took office in 1992, and has been re-elected six times. He plans to run again in 2016, and has raised $4.4 million in campaign contributions during the last 16 months

      Most of the contributions are made by out-of-state donors.

      Arpaio has announced that he will not enter the governor’s race. (State law would require him to resign immediately if he decided to run for governor.)



      Arpaio claims to work seven days a week,


      In reality, he spends most of his time at his posh residence in Fountain Hills, a very affluent suburb of Phoenix AZ.

      His massive personal office occupies the top two floors of a downtown skyscraper owned by Wells Fargo.


  2. Happiness?

    What is your idea of happiness? Is it a world where each person has a roof over their heads? food on their table?

    What is compassion Quat? is compassion where you give by your own free terms? or is it where you give by force – whether you like it or not?

    It appears to me that the world is full of hypocrites. Your definition of compassion is in fact extortion. Your solution – creating money – is fraud. Your solution is a scam. Wake up….
