I. The folly of this new bankruptcy law.
(It's like shooting the economy in the foot.)

Folks, let me say up front that I am a self-made writer.  I am not an economist and haven't read
or studied hardly anything about the subject.  I'm what you call a "One trick pony, one note
Charlie, or some other metaphor. I read one little quote in a pamphlet about forty years ago
that said "All economies begin with bartering."  Well, for some reason that little quote stuck in
my mind over the years and to this day all of my thinking is centered around that one little

I consider my views to be constructive criticism, it is up to others to set policy.  In my view,
any economy that doesn't backup it's currency with something of physical value is using
phoney money.  Wait, don't lock me in the basement just yet, I am a realist, I know that is a
very extreme view today but it was the rule in past history.  Another view I have is if you are
going to go ahead and run a non physical backed up currency, mass currency circulation is a
must or the whole system will collapse.  

Whereas, that is not the case when money is tied to something of physical value.  A true free
market place economy functions more on need and always have bartering to fall back on in
an emergency.  I for one think this new bankruptcy law is counter productive.  Since our
whole economy is based on mass money circulating to stay afloat, it doesn't make sense to
start choking off circulation in any way.  Years ago you didn't have compound interest.  

Now, with the overpowering suction of compound interest this new bankruptcy law may
make it unavoidable to become a debt slave for the rest of your life.  Once compound interest
get it's hooks in you to a certain depth, you are not going to ever pay your way out, period.  
The compound interest death grip is not equal or fair no matter how irresponsible one may
be.  In todays economical climate the middle class is barely hanging on.   

Today almost everybody is heavily in debt except the very rich.  Almost all of these poor and
middle class people are spenders, not savers.  You are not going to convince me that  this
new law is not going to effect retail income to some degree.  In this cock amamie economy it
is much more important to keep products and merchandise moving than it is to make people
debt slaves.  Lastly, as I have said many times before, we have an economy that cannot
survive without mass money circulation.  

Plus, there is nothing to fall back on like a strong culture, strong nuclear family foundation, or
bartering capacity if thing collapse, we are truly out on a limb.

I. Need+Survival=Natural Selection+Mother Nature.
Practically every social and economically problem we have today can be linked to
government becoming a social and family provider.  Those good intention acts has nearly
destroyed individual accountability and responsibility in this country.  Through a survival
need mother nature determines what survives through natural selection.  So, if you learn to
survive on something destructive and stupid, then when hard times and struggle comes,
mother nature is going to select the tried and true and leave you to perish.  

It is always wise to keep a direct survival need for the tried and true.  Where is the direct
survival need for the nuclear family?  Where is the direct survival need for good morals and
values?  Where is the direct survival need for adults to have a survival need for children?  
Where is the direct survival need for the elderly to have a survival need for their adult
offspring?  Where is the direct survival need for black women to have a survival need for
black men?  Where is the direct survival need for the extended family?  

Government as a sugar daddy social and family provider has taken all of those needs away.  
Now, almost everybody have a direct survival need to depend on big government to survive.  
Those that still perpetuate this way of life doesn't know or understand history.   There has
never been and never will be a government that won't collapse or go broke at some point.  It
is sheer folly for a great predominate Christian nation to be in our irresponsible position.  

I'm a simple neurotic uneducated south Georgia country boy, but, I have enough common
sense to know that if you have almost no culture or bartering capacity left, you have nothing
in terms of survival as a nation.  It is beyond me to understand why people can't see how
close we are to the edge.   What are all of these government dependents going to do if money
becomes worthless or if the government goes belly up?   We are talking about the lives of
millions and millions of people being at stake, still, ain't nobody listening.  

Folks, I'm here to tell you, sure, overall we live in a land of plenty under peaceful conditions,
but, that is not always going to be the case.  Sooner or later hard times and struggle are
going to come upon us.  We must be prepared to survival under all conditions.  Think about

I. Am I wrong to write about extreme case scenarios?
Note: The following essay is fiction and is not to be taken seriously, or as a prediction.  I'm
not out to scare anyone, I'm just one man imagining an extreme fictitious scenario.

As a great writer with great wisdom I've been wrong many times before and I hope I'm wrong
about the united states future.  I believe we are entering a new era and our survival as a free
nation is about to be tested.  I believe our only hope to survive as a free people is to privatise
government out of any individual provider role.  Sure, community kitchens and community
shelters are a must, but nothing more.  

I know ninety percent of the American people will think I'm uncaring, insensitive, and a S.O.B.,
wrong.  Throughout history the masses have always been wrong, civilization is where it is
today because of individuals that took a stand and would not waver.  Otherwise, I believe it is
right around the corner before our currency becomes practically worthless and with our
decayed culture we won't be able to avoid going for each others throat.  

I believe there will be nothing but blame, misplaced blame, and total chaos.  I believe martial
law will have be ordered with very little chance of regaining enough self discipline needed to
live as a free people for many, many years if ever.  Without a strong nuclear family system and
the capacity to barter you can't have freedom or keep it very long, period.  I'm sure the
government has continuance plans and enough gold to make sure the U.S. Armed Forces
and essential personnel get paid.  

But, as citizens you are on your own and better be prepared to fend for your self.  The fact is
whomever is the provider is responsible for those they provide for.  The government seized
its provider role and has made masses of people dependent only on government, now it is
the duty of government to take care of all of it's current dependents but not take on any more.
 The problem is the government should never have gotten into the individual family provider
business in the first place.  

I forgive the liberals for creating this dilemma because in their lack of wisdom they did want to
make life better and still do.   Now, government has this tar baby and is stuck with it, there is
no painless way out.  But, it doesn't end there, this baby is going to destroy this government
and this country by making our currency worthless from out of control government

May the grace of God save this once in ten thousand years great civilization.

Everybody keep talking about money, money, money, when we really should be more
concerned about restoring our culture, nuclear family foundation, and some bartering
capacity to survive.  Too much money in the system is really at the heart of the problem now.  
In the long run no amount of money is going to save the United States Of America unless we
privatise government out of the individual family provider business.  

Too much money in the system has already diluted the buying power out of reach for the
poor and is approaching the out of reach limit for the middle class.  All more money pumped
into the system is going to do is push the buying power totally out of reach for the middle
class too.  Most middle class families now are almost up to their eyeballs in credit card and
other kinds of debt and is barely hanging on.  Like one president said, "I'm going to hire me a
one arm economist because all I hear is, on one hand and then on the other."  

This stuff I'm talking is just common sense, a hundred years ago almost everybody knew this
simple stuff.  Just because one is learned doesn't mean he has common sense.  The simple
rule about any economy is it all starts from bartering, everything else spins off of that no
matter how advanced an economy may be.  The government is already almost totally
subsidizing the poor but it can't subsidize everybody.  

Any society that can't temporary survive without money is far, far too far away from the
basics of economically survival, and is doomed unless that is corrected.  There is no way to
restore bartering capacity or save our culture as long as government is in a family provider
role, period.  Sure, rebirth cycles in the form of severe recessions or depressions are terrible
things but they do serve a purpose.  

The trick is, as long as there are small purges you won't have the big ones like depressions.  
Purges get rid of moral decay, economical inefficiency, excessive bureaucracy, and all of the
things that are destroying this country.  Still, the foundation and institutions will remain in
place to secure survive.  Otherwise, to avoid these natural rebirth cycles at all cost you will
destroy the nuclear family foundation, the culture, the free market, and lastly, any hope of
surviving as a free people.  

This is the dilemma that our welfare state and big government super family provider role has
brought this great predominately Christian nation to.  Bartering is a basic system that no one
wants to use but it is a must emergency fall back system for any society to survive.  Look at
Russia and much of eastern Europe, they are poor and much of their economy is back to
bartering but their survival is not threatened.  

Bartering is what got us through the Great Depression.  But, now we have practically no
bartering capacity or a strong nuclear family foundation left.  The only thing that is going to
save this nation from total chaos and destruction is permanent martial law and military rule.  
Sooner than we think that is going to be this great nations destiny because deep down I don't
believe big government will ever be kicked out of its super family provider role.  

We have almost no bartering capacity to fall back on or strong nuclear family foundation and
strong culture left to rely on.   About all we have to fall back on is blame and going for each
others throat.  Still, big liberal media think people like me are crazy, kooky, right wing, and out
of touch.  I believe we are crying, begging, and pleading for this country's survival.  I say,
Glory be to God, give God the praise.

Only God knows if we can survive through this grave lack of wisdom.

I.  Can the U.S. survive blame game politics?
Concerning Hurricane Katrina, Folks, every instinct in my body warns me to shut the hell up,
don't you say a damn word, now is not the time to enlighten.  But, I'm about to pop, as a writer
I can't take it any longer, I must vent.  Sure, we all like to place blame, but for God sake now is
not the time to dwell on it in public.  I am in awe of our proud first responders, coast guard,
national guard, active and unactive military, and all others out there working hard and
endangering their own lives to help others.  

The awesome resources and might of this great nation is phenomenon and stands alone, no
other nation even comes close to what we can do.  We all should be helping, feeling blessed,
thankful, and praying.  We are truly a rich and blessed nation, but it didn't happen by
accident.  This great nation we have was not built on socialism.  Yet, that is the direction we
are well down the road to.  We as a nation is over 286 million people.

Speaking as a great writer with great wisdom, my observation is as a whole the nation's
mentality is all wrong due to decades of government as a family provider.  Sure, "No man is
an island," we all as individuals and as a people are going to need help at some time to
survive.  But, the mentality should never be "Somebody will always be there to take care of
me."  Also, I'm concern that the spending on this could be the tip of the iceberg.  

I'm concern that before this is over it could push our currency into super hyper inflation that
would dilute the buying power farther out of reach for the average hard working  American
citizen.   Then at some point make our currency practically worthless.  Very few American
understand how a free market place is suppose to work and that is really, really  scary.  
Ninety percent of Americans see government as this omnipotent super nipple that can
borrow, borrow, spend, spend, and keep spending without suffering some dreadful
consequence, wrong, wrong, wrong.  

As I have said before, you can game almost any system for eighty to a hundred years, then
reality sets in.  We have used up our grace period, now pay up time is right around the bend.  
I preach, and I preach, that our only hope is to try to restore the nuclear family system and
some bartering capacity, but all to no avail.  Ain't nobody listening.

There is a reason why the U.S is so rich and powerful and most of the world is poor and will
always be poor.  That reason is because of our freedom, our free market place, and our
unhindered entrepreneurial spirit.  But, we are well on our way down that proven failure
socialist road.  

May the grace of God save our economy, our nuclear family structural, and this great nation
of 286 million plus.

I.  Big liberal media is driving the final nail in the
coffin, can we stop them in time?
Sure, the liberals politicians with their creation of our big government super family provider
has all but destroyed our culture and country.  But, now the new bully on the block holding
the hammer and trying to drive the final nail in the coffin is big liberal media.  Sure, I may come
down hard on big liberal media, but they really are no different than the general public.  I only
criticise big liberal media because it is in a position to educate the public, but fails to do so.  

The fact is, the American people as a whole have a weak survival instinct due to years of
depending on big government instead of themselves for their survival.  Ninety percent of the
public doesn't think its possible for money to become worthless.  Ninety percent of the public
have no real concept of how a free market economy is suppose to work.  Ninety percent of
the public think that when the government runs out of money it can just keep printing more.  

How many people know that the government can't create wealth?  Any wealth the
government has must be taken from the people or a group of people.  What starts and feeds
this vicious inflationary spiral that we are caught up in is government taking from one group
and giving to another.   That is why I huff and puff so hard against big government being a
family provider, because then it take from group A and gives to group B.  

Once government is firmly in the family provider role with the power to tax, the ball game is
over.  There will no longer be any brakes to keep businesses from raising prices because the
dependent public is going to demand government chip in and help out instead of turning to
the extended family or other sources as was done through out history.

Now, with the government firmly planted as a  family provider the inflation cycle is up and
expanding, businesses  are going to demand higher and higher prices, then government is
going to demand higher and higher taxes to support higher and higher prices.  There is no
stopping inflation now, it may take a while, but it is going to eventually spin out of control, it
will be impossible not to.  

But, the really, really sad thing is, it will destroy almost every institution in the process.  It has
already just about destroyed our culture and left us with very little means of surviving
through hard times. It has created hoards of shallow minded liberals with very little wisdom,
and finally, it has wrecked our manufacturing industry and driven most of it out of the

My God in heaven!  Wake up America, and some think I'm crazy, kooky, unstable, or insane,
glory be to God.  You have the big government socialist and other "We know best" idealogs,
but the true reality is, western culture is what has brought civilization to where it is today.  
Western culture has been the most successful culture in the history of mankind.  Yet, it is all
but destroyed by our super family provider government.  

I feel that if it was left up to big liberal media we would be out of Iraq by yesterday.  Thinking
things all the way through and what effect it would have on the economical survival of this
country is not much of a factor to shallow minded people with very little perspective.  Thank
God they are not in charge.  Those with weak survival instincts are the type that will bring the
whole house down just to prove a point, if they could.  

Our nations economical survival depends on the stability of that whole region over there, and
big liberal media knows that, but they will not tell the public.  In the days of old you could
depend on the media to guard, protect, inform, and educate the public.  Not anymore, big
liberal media with their socialist agenda along with big government as family provider is the

Big liberal media is holding the hammer getting ready to drive the final nail in the coffin.  This
nation's only hope is to privatise big government out of its super family provider role before it
is too late.  Its inflation alright, except, they don't call it inflation, they call it growth or growing
the economy instead.  Myself, I know its inflation because you can no longer buy a coke for a

A true free market has a rebirth cycle that would knock down high prices and purge out all of
this moral decay and liberal claptrap, which would save our culture.  Otherwise, without a
rebirth cycle there is nothing to stop a culture from rotting away like ours.  Without a strong
culture there is no way to survive when hard times come.  Folks, I don't make the rules, I just
try to explain it the way it really is.      

Of course, not all news people or organizations fit a negative image, in fact many are out there
trying as hard as I am to save this great country.  May the grace of God save this great nation.

I.  We should never go with our tail between our legs to
lick our wounds.
A word to the wise concerning those who can't wait to cut and run.  What is
happenings in Iraq will be a drop in the bucket to what it will be like if we cut and
run and the results throw our country into an economical collapse.  To be honest,
as a very wise writer, I really don't think this country can survive an economical
collapse and remain free, especially with almost no nuclear family structural or
bartering capacity left.  

If we don't stay the course whatever it may be, we will be gambling on the
economical survival of the United States Of America, period.  Now, you can take
that with a grain of salt or you can take it to the bank, whichever one you
choose?  Big liberal media will never tell you that fact, I just did.

I.  Can the African American community get control of
the spread of AIDS?
Well, for what it is worth I decided to add my two cents to the subject, "On the down low."  It is
no secret that AIDS is far out of proportion in the African American communities and even on
Historically Black Colleges and Universities(HBCUs).  There must be a reason why this is so.  I
was the first one that pointed out that the revolving door in and out of the prison system was
the leading factor.  

But, that still doesn't explain why this out of proportion also exist on HBCUs.  That means
there must be a culture factor involved.  Many believes it is how the African American
community defines homosexuality.  The general mainstream assumption is that anyone
participating in a homosexual act is a homosexual, but that is not what many minority men

A great many minority men view homosexuality basically in the same light as masturbation.  
They view the act in terms of dominant or submission or driver or receiver.  They believe that
as long as they are in the dominant role and doing the driving their manhood is not at issue or
threatened.  They feel they are only acting like a squirrel as long as it is kept secret.  Whereas,
it is only the one that is in the submissive and receiving role that makes one a homosexual.  

As a writer I'm not deciding anything, I'm just trying to shine as much light as possible on the
true mindset.  To get at the AIDS problem, you first need to understand what people are really
thinking.  The fact is, it boils down to the same old saw, that is permissive sexual behavior and
loose morals.  Men have in the past and will always try to get easy sex from whomever will
give it up.  So, the ultimate AIDS solution lies with the women in this country.  

They need to stop giving up all of this easy unobligated sex, period.  Back before we had a
super big government sugar daddy provider, very few African American women would give
up sex without an obligated commitment, and even then he had to be of sound character.  
Back then If a suitor wouldn't go to church and clean up his act, it was "Her way or the
highway," and she had a strong dad or brother that would kick butt to back her up.    

My solution as always, get the government the hell out of the family provider business.  In my
opinion, AIDS in the African American community is approaching the out of control level.

I.  My comment on neurosis
I have never studied the subject of neurosis and actually know very little about it, even though
I've suffered neurotic symptoms as long as I can remember from early childhood.  But, I do
know the disease is caused from an unloving or unhealthy environment in some way that is or
was beyond the sufferers own control, and should never be ridiculed.  One of the main
symptoms that neurotics have is an overpowering self awareness that they can't turn off, but
it's definitely not bliss.  A reflection on the quote, "Ignorance is bliss."
