Looking Forward To Flying Into Baltimore Tomorrow

I’m expecting to hear Loretta Lynch any minute now, promising justice for the business owners being targeted by #YourLifeDoesntMatter protesters. Or perhaps Martin O’Malley bragging about how he “fixed Baltimore.”

    This is what happens when law is lost in urban areas populated by people who think that food comes from stores…

    • Earth to Stephen. Food comes from stores.

      • Stephen Fisher says:

        Tell it to the farmers…

        • Stephen Fisher says:

          …and electricity comes from wall outlets
          …water comes from faucets
          Is my point any clearer to you Morgan?

        • gator69 says:

          And money comes from the government…

        • Gail Combs says:

          Money comes from the Banksters not the government…..

          As Graham F. Towers, Governor of the Central Bank of Canada stated:

          That is the Banking business, just in the same way that a steel plant makes steel. (p. 287) The manufacturing process consists of making a pen-and-ink or typewriter entry on a card in a book. That is all. (pp. 76 and 238) Each and every time a bank makes a loan (or purchases securities), new bank credit is created…

          Wealth on the other hand comes from our industry. The combining of ingenuity, labor and resources to produce products (or services) that other people want and are willing to exchange their wealth for. Money is nothing but the facilitator of the exchange of wealth. If it is Banker fiat it has no intensic value. (At present in the USA 97% of the money is a data entry in a computer!)

          Gold, silver and copper do have intensic value. More important they can not just be created at the whim of a dishonest bankster. The average joe misses the point (and that included me) of whose “wealth” actually paid for the money that was “loaned” out and WHO collected the “wealth” in return for the “debt” This is the sleight of hand that the Banksters have used to steal the wealth of the industrious. When the Fed increases the money supply, as they did in 2008 to 2009 from $831 billion to $1663 billion, where did the wealth come from and who did it go to?

          Gary North and Mises explain this better than I can.

          When new money is created it does not appear magically in equal percentages in all people’s bank accounts or under their mattresses. Therefore money spreads unevenly, and this process has varying effects on individuals, depending on whether they receive early or late access to the new money.

          It is these losses of the groups that are the last to be reached by the variation in the value of money which ultimately constitute the source of the profits made by the bankers and the groups most closely connected with them.

          Did you get that? This is the key point. When money is devalued the first pigs to the trough (the first to borrow) steal the wealth of the late comers. Newly printed fiat money does not create new wealth it just steals it from the poor and middle class, who are always the last to the trough, and pay for the devaluation in higher prices and lower wages.

          Now go back to what I said yesterday about the 1980s leveraged buyouts of American corporations that transferred the massive amount of wealth built up over the years in most midsized American corporations to the corporate raiders and the banks. All the wealth that backed the fiat money printed to do that bit of theft came from the wealth of the average joe via wage devaluation and sky rocketing prices. In otherwords WE the People of the USA ethically OWNED those raided corporations since it is our wealth that paid for them. However we never got title to the property nor any say when they were raped by the Raiders, broken up and sold off.

          This is my major problem with Romney BTW, he is a Corporate Raider.

        • gator69 says:

          When Romney was apart of Bane Capital they saved jobs…

          Perhaps the biggest issue with Hewitt’s comments is that she said Romney’s business experience “is not experience creating good paying jobs.” We don’t know for sure how many jobs the GOP candidate generated as an executive, but Hewitt’s assessment isn’t fair given the success rate for Romney-era Bain companies, which include Staples, Sealy Corporation and Sports Authority, to name a few.
          Romney has tried to claim credit for 100,000 jobs through such companies, but we determined in a past column that his figure was untenable. Still, it’s simply not true that he didn’t create any jobs. Rattner wrote in his Politico piece that Bain Capital “doubtless created some incalculable number of net new jobs for the U.S. economy” despite a few examples of companies that faltered.


        • gonewiththewind says:

          Like it or not that is what democracy, capitalism and freedom is all about. You can choose to buy stock (i.e. buy a company) or not buy stocks. The rich invest their money to get a return on their investment and they do it because they are free to do so just as you and everyone else in America is. Buying a failing company and then doing the hard work to make it succeed is a good thing and I fail to see why it would upset you.

        • Gail Combs says:

          My problem is fractional reserve banking where the Banksters create money out of nothing.

          Money is not capital. WEALTH is capital. When a banker print additional money they diminish the value of the money stock as a whole because no wealth has been created. (In otherwords they stole value from each of us.) With barter there are two winners and no losers in a trade but when a banker creates money out of thin air, loans it to a corporate raider and the raider then uses that freshly created money to buy corporate stock, morally it is NOTHING BUT THEFT.

          Bain’s did Leveraged Buyouts and therefore that make Romney a Corporate Raider

          If I go down in my basement and create billions of $$$ in fives, tens, twenties and fifties and I then use that freshly printed money to buy stock, I go to jail for counterfeiting if I am caught. The only different between that and what Romney and the banks did is they got a law past letting them scam the public.

          Of all the contrivances for cheating” the laboring1 classes of mankind, none has been more effectual than that which deludes them with paper money. This is the most effectual of inventions to fertilize the rich mans field by the sweat of the poor man’s brow. Ordinary tyranny, oppression, excessive taxation, these bear lightly on the happiness of the mass of the community, compared with a fraudulent currency, and the robberies committed by depreciated paper.” — Daniel Webster

  3. Let donations pour in!

  4. Pathway says:

    These kinds of actions is why the Democrat Party should be band, just as the Nazi party was band in Germany. They perpetuate this kind of stuff.

  5. Andy DC says:

    The media has been egging this on now for years. It was only a matter of time before a major city exploded.

    If the so-called black leaders cared anything about helping black people, they would be protesting Hispanics waltzing in here and taking away jobs that should have been filled by blacks. Instead they focus on the lastest black criminal trying to run away from the police or resisting arrest, which is always a dangerous game.

    • B says:

      The so-called leaders serve the status-quo power structure. That’s why they survived the 1960s and the others did not. They benefit from destroying real community and creating poverty and dependence so that’s what they do.

    • If police attitudes in Baltimore are like the RCMP in Canada I can understand there would be frustration. Video cameras prove them to be brutal, lying thugs.

  6. gonewiththewind says:

    If they don’t use the video that is available toidentify, arrest and punish those who rioted then the city and the citizens deserve what they get. If they don’t allow the police to use force including deadly force then the city and the citizens deserve all of this and more. I can guarantee you that if everyone who throws a rock at a cop was shot by the police then the rock throwing would stop. If I were livng there (and I know better then to even go to Baltimore at anytime) and someone came into my business or into my home to steal or be violent I would shoot them. What is allowed will flourish.

    • gator69 says:

      Think again, this violenece is welcomed by the “Mayor”…

      • Gail Combs says:

        I think it is time for the police in Baltimore to walk out and time for the Prostestors to use ‘the space given to them’ to destroy the homes of the Mayor, her council and city hall.

        Also everyone who had property destroyed should hold the Mayor PERSONALLY LIBEL.

        • Gail Combs says:

          Sorry gator,
          Thanks to John Dewey and the Progs experiments with sight reading, I can’t spell worth beans. I moved from Opera (with spell check) to Firefox (without) a week or so ago. It did seem to get rid of the censorship problem and my computer crashing daily.

        • gator69 says:

          My father and I learned to spell using phonics, my mother not so much. Dad was an excellent speller, and I won the 8th grade spelling bee, without even trying.

          I work off an old laptop and an iPhone, both with tiny screens, and I wish one had a spell checker and the other didn’t. 😆

          In feel your pain. Mom was and still is super smart, she went back to school a few years ago and got a degree in archeology, so she could run the local history museum. Spelling is not as important as knowing what you are talking about.

        • Gail Combs says:

          From what I can tell music and the ability to pick up language easily (and spell using phonics) seem to be tied. I am close to tone deaf and just plain can not differentiate close sounds although my hearing is very good. Hubby is quite musical and can pick up languages pronouncing them correctly easily. I murdered French and German in school.

          However when it comes to color I am very very good at differentiating different colors and have worked color matching professionally.

        • gator69 says:

          Hey Gail! I have an associates degree in music. And while garnering leading roles in musicals at school, I landed the role of “King” in the “King and I”, which was my favorite role hands down. I have always had an ear for music and languages, or at least so I am told. So I guess there could be something to what you say, but I just never thought about it.

          My father and mother could carry a tune with a large enough bucket, dad was a drummer, and mom played piano. I seem to have taken after my mother’s father, who had a very nice baritone voice, but he never did anything with it. Mom’s mother said I even walked like granddad.

          From what I have learned, living near nature gives one the ability to differentiate shades of color better than the urbanites, we simple country folk can tell when a plant is stressed or healthy by the slightest change in its foliage.

          Speaking of which, I just took my after dinner stroll out to the road, and was awe struck by the incredible fragrance of blossoming hawthorns. It made me hungry all over again. I saw my first hummingbird of the year this morning, and wondered why he was here when there was little fuel for his high performance acrobatics, and now I know. I can’t wait for sunrise, so I can go out and start snapping some pictures of this explosion of tree blossoms that so patiently waited through this long cold Winter. They seem to be making up for lost time, and producing prolifically as if they know someting we do not.

          The coyotes will be singing me to sleep tonight, in whatever ancient language they speak. We who live with nature are truly blessed, and I feel for those stuck in Baltimore tonight.

        • B says:

          Firefox has real-time spell check. Using it now. Like a typical engineer my spelling isn’t good and never has been. Real time spell check is one the best inventions in 30 years of computing.

        • Donna K. Becker says:

          Gator, Gail, et al.,

          Many decades ago, I read about a study linking musical with language ability. I have a good ear for music, and learn languages pretty easily. I suppose that partially explains the fact that I’ve always been a good speller. Of course, one should also consider that visual learners may have an easier time with spelling than do those who learn via auditory or kinesthetic channels.

  7. Steve Case says:

    “Spelling is not as important as knowing what you are talking about.”

    Somewhere that should be the “Quote of the day”

  8. Dave N says:

    Can’t fly into DC instead? You could pass by Barry’s house on the way home

  9. B says:

    Anyway if this goes on much longer I’m going to declare a case of Problem Reaction Solution.

  10. Oh the humanity!! All that carbon into the atmosphere from the burning businesses and patrol cars!!

  11. TomE says:

    I suspect that what you have seen in Ferguson, and now Baltimore is just an introduction into what this summer is going to be. Frankly I am glad I do not live in a major metro area or where the black population is dominate. Places like Memphis, St. Louis, Baltimore, Atlanta, Detroit, Louisville, etc. are going to be hell this summer and Obama will do nothing to discourage or condemn it. The country is slowing unraveling due to a total lack of leadership and an abundance of PC.

  12. Gail Combs says:

    Gator says: “….I’m still scratching my head over what Gail and her husband do with four of these…”

    We and a friend, a card carrying communist, would put a player piano out in Harvard Square, Cambrige MA. Right in front of Harvard University and we sing that song complete with the raspberries in der Fuhrer’s face!

    I do nothing the good Progressives listenning understood we were also giving them (or they were giving themselves) the raspberry. It was a fairly popular song. We used to do ‘the Preacher and the Bear’ too but we would not dare to today. That song was transcribed to piano rolls by Doug, a gay Prog who thought the songs should be preserved. (He also did the Klu Klux Klan March with “adjust hood” in the middle where there is only music.)


    Player Piano rolls have the words printed on the roll so people can sing along. Some even have pictures included.

    We have about 2,000 and two player pianos.

    Gator played the King in “The King and I”..? My admiration grows.
