This is your Darth Vader moment. The Constitution has fallen. You must now choose whether you are going to fight for the forces of Good or the forces of Evil. America has been temporarily defeated by those who despise the freedoms protected by our Constitution. With the manufactured consent of the people and a media system designed to sway opinion against the freedoms so many like you have died to protect – members of Congress secretly conspired and executed an act of legislation that openly seeks to reverse hundreds of years of freedom and sacrifice. The men and women who spilled their blood and sacrificed their blood, lives, and property to maintain political freedoms lie in their graves asking you to be bold in this moment and to take a stand against orders you may receive directing you against your fellow citizens. With this act of aggression against America from within, now all citizens, like Nazi Germany – face the very real prospect death or execution for simply expressing protest against a rotten political and business system rigged in favor of murderers, liars, and thieves. This blog post is now considered a “Low Level Act Of Terrorism” for simply telling the truth. Do you deny that this is tyranny, and that you have a responsibility to stand against such Anti-American legislation?
You must choose. Do you let the Empire kill Luke, Han, Chewie, and that hottie in the Jabba-provided bikini? You must choose to STAND DOWN.
(Don’t mind the Special Edition version of this battle scene – the original cut is better, yes.)
BUT FOR GOD”S SAKE! Don’t let Cobra Commander kill Duke! Megatron must NOT destroy Optimus! Do not exit light, good, and honor so easily! You swore you would protect the Constitution, and many of you are making excuses right now to protect traitors who are openly killing the Constitution.
Understand there need to be leaders among you who stand UP for morals, and stand DOWN to anti-American, anti-Constitutional orders. Like this brave National Guard soldier:
“… he said that during the EDRE (emergency deployment readiness exercise) at the armory, 3 companies of infantry were polled by questionare about the drill and it’s purpose. One of the questions was, will you as a member of the Nat. Guard use lethal force against the American public if ordered to do so? One of the men stepped forward and refused to take the poll and explained that it was a moral judgement on his part and that he could not do so. He then placed his weapon on the ground and fell in behind the formation. Devon said it was like a waterfall, Every member layed their weapons on the deck and fell in beside the one lone specialist. This included ALL NCO’s, STAFF NCO’s and SENIOR NCO’s. The only people left in front of the original formation was 3 Capt’s. 2 Lt’s and the BN Commander who was so upset he started having chest pains from yelling and screaming about court martials and disbandment of the unit into other units. Devon is a Mstr.Sgt and he went with his troops and told them that he could not be prouder of any of them.”
Now THAT is an American hero.
There is much to fear, if we let death scare us. I don’t want to die, but my years of patriotism cannot be hidden and I refuse to let America die without a fight. And yes – you are better trained, better armed, and will get me no matter where I may run and hide. So I choose not to hide – I choose to stand tall and fight for freedom. And if you don’t do the same so you can keep cashing that soon-to-be worthless paycheck you get from serving Cobra Commander – realize you are showing your kids you are a person who is making a choice that will haunt your family when your peers eventually come for you as well.
Our Founding Fathers weren’t perfect. They owned slaves, and they forgot to make sure people who serve in congress have term limits so we could better prevent decay of our freedoms. Soon the men who’s faces are on our money will be turned into villains, and school children will be taught they were evil men. Our Founding Fathers tried so very hard to build in language to protect us, and year after year, dark forces have been chipping away at our Bill of Rights. You know – those bedrock foundations of freedom like the right to speak freely, to not be prosecuted without due process of law, and to maintain weapons to face down enemies.
Isn’t that why you joined the police or military in the first place? Sure, it’s a paycheck, but it has to mean more than that! Realize by joining with the people right now and reversing such treasonous legislation – we can still save America by protecting people’s rights to freedom. Certainly, everyone needs a paycheck to pay off our debts, buy food, pitch in for sports equipment for the kids, etc. Just please at least realize that the ongoing wars (get ready for $250 a barrel oil) and theft of our currency will make the price of everything rise to infinity… food, gas, football tickets – you name it. The bankers may just keep printing money to ensure you have a paycheck – the the rest of us will not just roll over while we are attacked by you. You, who I love and am sickened by your transformation from my hero to a cowardly order taker.
Do you want your kids growing up in a country that openly takes people away to death camps because they voice an opinion or bring up facts that expose corrupt officials in charge? Shouldn’t people who rape little kids and steal trillions of America’s dollars be prosecuted by laws everyone has to adhere to? People are protesting because the system is rigged in favor of murderers, liars, and thieves. I understand though – some of you have trouble admitting to yourself things you have done, and others may know your secrets. Well, if you can’t own up to those, then we are doomed. I’m no angel either… but we have to have truth – and not be afraid.
Afraid to stand against what we know is wrong.
Afraid to be the one in the locker room who stands up for what is right.
And afraid to stand down when given an order to break the very freedoms so many of your brothers have died to protect.
Well, I am a military brat. I grew up in New Hampshire – our motto is “Live Free or Die”. I went to middle school in Germany, where I learned about the horrors of concentration camps, and how people were rounded up and murdered because they rolled over and let their government have those evil powers. I went to High School in Oklahoma, where so many supposed patriots flew flags on their trucks, representing freedom to own guns and say what the hell they wanted to say without fear of prosecution, no matter how stupid it may have been. And I went to College in Alaska, where supposedly I could see Russia. I must not have as a good of vision as some people there, but I do know that I attended the university with Russian students who were guests in our country – and they told me of the economic suffering they faced during their collapse.
So if we are afraid to stand up because we may lose our paychecks – know that it doesn’t matter because we face economic collapse due to the corruption of Federal and State finances. Corruption in the protection of pedophiles. Corruption in the allocation of money for nuclear weapons rather than an alternative energy economy. Yes, everyone is pissed as purchasing power vanishes, and there need to be charges filed by Attorney Generals against those who have committed crimes against this nation so we can restore the rule of law and maintain order. I assure you we can fix our problems without carting people off to gas and torture chambers.
It is a fact that this planet is running low on energy resources and such a huge population cannot continue to grow. Sacrifices must be made. There is a plan, however – one that doesn’t require you to sacrifice American freedoms or to kill Americans. With proper leadership, we can re-engineer our money, energy, and food / fuel systems to support lives worth living for our present population. But yes, we will all need to roll up our sleeves to do it.
The world is changing fast no matter what – and I beg you to choose the right side.
Choose to help Luke. Arrest Cobra Commander. Save Optimus Prime.
You can be a hero by saying “no” to orders you know are wrong. I love you, and hope you don’t kill me too fast. I want to see the America that the upcoming generation of kids rebuild. And we can’t do it without your help.
I am reading stories about how not many economists saw “The Crash” coming. Are you saying that all the punks I know are smarter than Wall Street and Washington analysts?
Of course it’s bullshit. Any smart person saw it coming, and the military started their peak oil campaign back in 2001. Venezuela – your oil is in our scope sights now!
There are many Americans working for peace, however. Remember – they track you with your cell phone, and you can eat dandelions!
Eventually, there are going to be very big explosions in a city near you.
So party while you can, and be a good human. That means trying to help other communities so they don’t blow you up, and vice-versa.
This means all kids on earth need to get along or we will certainly witness one of mother nature’s big bangs.
That’s right, I said it. Peak Oil is a straw man argument.
If you want to understand what I mean, watch this alternate ending to “The Lord Of The Rings”. You will quickly understand.
See what I mean?
What it sums up is that fixing Peak Oil all comes down to the community’s decision to follow a smarter plan, act accordingly, and share collective resources and talents with one another. That is how you win.
Think about it this way. The “Lord of The Rings” movie everyone has collectively seen presents a story the way it was written. Everyone leaves the theatre thinking that was the way the story had to be. But Ho Ho! If J.R. Tolkien had written “The Fellowship Of The Ring” to actually follow the course in the alternate ending, people would have had a much shorter movie and still had a happy ending.
And this is our society’s problem. We love thrillers. The story of “Peak Oil” is currently being presented as a potentially cataclysmic global energy problem. It is not. Peak Oil is a communications problem among a spoiled, techno-zombie culture. We have communicated with one another for so long about the story ending, we can’t decide what our global population’s story of continuity should be.
In America, the lagging economy is driving a dramatic move back to basics and a reversal of decades-long trends of convenience. Roughly half of all consumers with incomes less than $55,000 per year say they have trouble affording the groceries they need, while nearly a quarter of those earning between $55,000 and $99,000 also say so. Among those with incomes over $100,000, 16% report having trouble. 42% of consumers say they have given up favorite food brands because of rising prices and economic concerns.

Also, large numbers of Americans face the prospect of energy shutoffs during the coming months because of rising energy prices and stagnant wages.
And so communities around the world are going to have to grapple with dwindling resources at the community level. You will not get help from the folks at the top. Anyone over 30 knows that money drives politics, and money is presently tied up in oil. This will remain true until communities free themselves from the global money system and start basing values on things that matter, such as services you provide that benefit the entire community and that do not cause harm to the environment or other people.
I would argue that hemp does not cause harm to people. It is a renewable energy resource and medicine. It’s human laws and lawns getting in the way of nature that are stopping us from having enough food and fuel for everyone.
Because cars are cool. I like walking, but I still want to drive, damnit! And right now, I am making my own fuel – which can run in any car with a combustible engine. The oil companies took over the fuel market a long time ago, and they are defending their money with as much vigor as they can.
So until local communities start firing up moonshine and having their local farmers plant sorghum as a better feedstock alternative than corn, we aren’t really serious about fixing our problems. Until we each begin to learn about the soil food web, we aren’t serious about fixing the problem. Until we each accept one another’s faiths, and work together to improve earth’s life support systems, we are not serious about fixing the problem. If we aren’t willing to help more than just ourselves, our family, and our friends, we aren’t serious about fixing the problem.
It’s going to take collective action from each of us, as well as the truth to emerge about certain solutions that have been suppressed, to implement desperately needed changes. Changes that allow us to continue to live happy lives, eat better, and travel from one place to another. Changes that are possible, given that we take away so much power from corporations and weapons companies that run the world.
Unless communities immediately create renewable local food and water systems, it means even more war and death. Until a majority of us are ready to act on the advice of innovators with proof that we don’t have to be less than human to one another and that there is plenty of land to grow enough food to feed the entire planet, we will just keep on reading headlines about bombs dropping.
If you are ready to listen to a leader that offers real ways our children of tomorrow can be proud of the actions we take today, my company has created a proven path of how we can get there. It’s a positive, loving, and life-affirming alternate ending to the Story of Peak Oil, and I am launching it in Portland.
Oh, the excitement!
For more fun, head over to You Tube Theater!
In this episode, we head out with Railer guitarist DD Desade who lived on the streets of Portland for eight months. More and more people will be adding to the streets as Peak Oil kicks poor people in the teeth even harder. It is a worldwide problem.
DD is an entertaining tour guide for the ultimate in street living and homeless survival tips. Watch and learn! He told me he had absolutely nothing to his name. He ate out of trash cans. He begged for money. And he was free.
He was free from any responsibility – and if he could tolerate the cold and wet conditions, he could survive and just get drunk all day. It was bittersweet – and he knows over five Iraq veterans who have taken the same path – choosing freedom and drugs/alcohol over rejoining society.
Maybe some of the homeless are just trying to work things out and they will figure out ways to deal with their pain. For now, why don’t you watch this 15 minute documentary on Homeless Survival Tips. You might just learn something.
Do you know how to kick someone’s ass?
I mean a knock-down, drag out brawl to the very end… bloody fists and a lump of beaten flesh falling as you hear the dull thud of your competitor’s body hitting the pavement.
Many people are beginning to realize just how screwed we are as Mother Earth ceases the ability to feed us all. So brothers and sisters around the planet are going to have to eventually choose to be Garden Warriors or predators. Sure, no one can predict the way things are going to go down, but they certainly are going to go down. How long you survive depends on too many variables to predict.
The question is how well you are prepared for the changes that happen in society. Not everyone is going to be nice, and just like in Nature, the weak and untrained will die off first. As much as you may hate the idea of some meathead killing you for whatever reason as laws fall by the wayside, unless you can defend yourself – it will probably happen.
It makes me wonder how much time people have to truly prepare themselves in the ways of the warrior. I can’t pretend to be an expert in this area, especially since I never spent time training in the jungle getting beat up by ninjas the way Hollywood would have us believe it goes.
No, most people with warrior skills understand that the desire to survive comes down to will power and past experience. If you have military training and equipment, you will certainly have an advantage over a white collar worker with virgin fists. But there are more and more people waking up to the “Fight Club” mentality – realizing that materialism is bunk and coming back to the principles of reality.
The fact is, as simple as we learn to live while preparing to do more with less, unless law and order is maintained and people remain civil, you might consider getting into shape sooner rather than later.
If you live in Portland, I recommend visiting Kurtis Goodwin.
I thought I might be able to get a dodge dealer to sponsor this kind of ad. I wonder if they will ever become risk takers and buy into the idea since car sales are slowing down?
