To All My Left-wing and Liberal Friends:
Please accept with no obligation, implied or explicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the summer/winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2012, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make Canada and the United States great nations. Not to imply that these two countries are necessarily greater than any other country in the world. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.
To My Conservative Friends:
Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
Our freedom is being chipped away bit by bit since 9/11 and most of our fellow citizens could care less. I jokingly tell my friends that as long as the internet and FaceBook.com is up and running the current generation of young adults won’t mind losing all of their freedoms. Check out the articles below.
RT.com article is here.
NYTimes.com opinion article is here.
Unmanned aircraft from an Air Force base in North Dakota help local police with surveillance, raising questions that trouble privacy advocates.

I guess these guys were lucky that the police aren’t allowed to call in air strikes. Maybe in a couple of years that will be the penalty for rustling cattle.
So now we’re going to be labeled terrorists. For those of us who want to have food and water to in preparation for a natural or man made disaster and have the means to defend ourselves we will run the risk of being called terrorists. This is a sad and strange time that we are living in. In essence we are going to be considered dangerous because we want to protect ourselves and family. Shame on you who think this is worth our governments time.
In this video Chris Martenson, economic analyst at chrismartenson.com and author of ‘The Crash Course’, explains why he thinks that the coming 20 years are going to look completely unlike the last 20 years. In his presentation he focuses on the so-called three “Es”: Economy, Energy and Environment. He argues that at this point in time it is no longer possible to view either one of those topics separately from one another.
A fellow reader pointed me to The Federal Observer which had the entire manifesto. You can read it in its entirety below.
The Bankers Manifesto of 1892 was revealed by US Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, SR from Minnesota before the US Congress sometime during his term of office between the years of 1907 and 1917 to warn the citizens.
“We (the bankers) must proceed with caution and guard every move made, for the lower order of people are already showing signs of restless commotion. Prudence will therefore show a policy of apparently yielding to the popular will until our plans are so far consummated that we can declare our designs without fear of any organized resistance.
The Farmers Alliance and Knights of Labor organizations in the United States should be carefully watched by our trusted men, and we must take immediate steps to control these organizations in our interest or disrupt them.
At the coming Omaha Convention to be held July 4th (1892), our men must attend and direct its movement, or else there will be set on foot such antagonism to our designs as may require force to overcome. This at the present time would be premature. We are not yet ready for such a crisis. Capital must protect itself in every possible manner through combination (conspiracy) and legislation.
The courts must be called to our aid, debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.
When through the process of the law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of the government applied to a central power of imperial wealth under the control of the leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders.
History repeats itself in regular cycles. This truth is well known among our principal men who are engaged in forming an imperialism of the world. While they are doing this, the people must be kept in a state of political antagonism.
The question of tariff reform must be urged through the organization known as the Democratic Party, and the question of protection with the reciprocity must be forced to view through the Republican Party.
By thus dividing voters, we can get them to expand their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us, except as teachers to the common herd. Thus, by discrete action, we can secure all that has been so generously planned and successfully accomplished.”
I received the following from a reader but I could not find the original source. If anyone comes across the original article please post a comment and I’ll get in touch with you. These words, if they are true, give considerable insight into the mind frame of those who are in positions of power in financial institutions even though they were written almost a 100 years ago.
“Capital must protect itself in every possible way,
both by combination and legislation. Debts must be
collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as
possible. When through the process of law the
common people lose their homes, they will become
more docile and more easily governed through the
strong arm of government applied by a central
power of wealth under leading financiers. These
truths are well known among our principal men
who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to
govern the world. By dividing the voter through the
political party system we can get them to expend
their energies in fighting for questions of no
importance. It is thus by discreet action we can
secure for ourselves that which has been so well
planned and so successfully accomplished.”

Here is a shortcut for calculating MOA to Clicks. This tip was sent in by a reader in Washington State.
Inches in drop/rise divided by yards divide by 100 equals drop/rise in MOA. A short cut is just to drop the zeros so you don’t have to divide the yards by 100 (200 = 2, 300 = 3 etc…)
Drop/rise in MOA times 4 equals clicks up/down to zero.
200: -1.07” / 2 = .54moa; then .54moa x 4 = 2clicks
300: -3.98” / 3 = 1.33moa; then 1.33moa x 4 = 5clicks
