No job? No health care? Worried about your retirement? (i.e. ending up old, sick and broke)
The Department of Defense is hiring.
Because endlessly expanding war is America's new growth industry.
Here's Fox News shilling for the military, gushing about what a great employer it is:
* Confidential online mental health assessment.
* Free "stress reduction" programs for children at Fort Bliss?
* "If you love, travel this is definitely for you."
Is it just me...or is this the creepiest "news" story in the long time.
...down to the rail trail. Were I broke tracks for Mandi so she could SKI to work. Her boss was ecstatic as she to is also an avid skier.

Straight to the Source
Obama also found out that he cannot change anything else either, if he ever intended to do so.
The military/security lobby has war and a domestic police state on its agenda, and a mere American president can't do anything about it.
President Obama can order the Guantanamo torture chamber closed and kidnapping and rendition and torture to be halted, but no one carries out the order.
Essentially, Obama is irrelevant.
President Obama can promise that he is going to bring the troops home, and the military lobby says, "No, you are going to send them to Afghanistan, and in the meantime start a war in Pakistan and maneuver Iran into a position that will provide an excuse for a war there, too. Wars are too profitable for us to let you stop them." And the mere president has to say, "Yes, Sir!"
Obama can promise health care to 50 million uninsured Americans, but he can't override the veto of the war lobby and the insurance lobby. The war lobby says its war profits are more important than health care and that the country can't afford both the "war on terror" and "socialized medicine."
The insurance lobby says health care has to be provided by private health insurance; otherwise, we can't afford it.

I don't really know anything about UK politics, but I assume they have the same collection of wankers over there there we have here.
But man, I like the way these guys talk!
One thing I'll say for the UK, the Prime Ministers have to sit there and take it publicly.
Can you imagine the Imperial President of the Empire of the United States ever facing public criticism like this?
The UK may be the Nanny State, but at least it's not the Thorazine State.

Saturday Mandi and I spent the entire day in Davis helping out and then racing in Blackwater Cyclo cross race. We were both very pleased with the way we raced. I am not sure were my legs have been all year but they did make a cameo appearance on Saturday for two races. I hope they come back and visit more often, not just once a year.
Sunday was so beautiful that we decided that we must head back up to Davis again. This time John tagged along. We did a nice very mellow techy ride punctuated with John ripping a nice big hole in his back tire.
Riding in November in Davis in shorts, who would of thunk it. And I for one hope that this wonderful DRY weather continues.

What's is it about?
Federal government employed psychologists being empowered to deny an individual the right to own guns based on a diagnosis. Not behavior. No criminal activity. A diagnosis.
Question: What sector of society has just been radically sensitized to the issue of "traumatized" people bearing arms?
You guessed it. The psychologists and psychiatrists.
You can almost hear it coming:
"If only he'd been diagnosed. If only the law had been used to take away his guns, Fort Hood would never have happened."
I can easily see a situation where returning combat veterans are tested, found to be suffering from PTSD, and stripped of their right to bear arms based on that diagnosis.
For the good of the country of course. Look at what happened in Fort Hood.
If a major with a degree in psychiatry could do something like this, anyone can.
This script could not have been better written by Hollywood.

North Forked again and boy was it mighty beautiful up on that wonderful ridge on Sunday. A rowdy bunch we were: Mandi, John, Me and (gasp) Jason Cyr. It would have been the perfect ride if wouldn't have been for all my pesky flats. I guess 850 grams tires just are not tough enough for my 115 lb bee-hind. If you have never rode North Fork trail you shouldn't or maybe you should. It is up to you.

In the video here, members of a CFR symposium admit they are flummoxed by “crazy people” telling the truth about flu vaccinations on the internet. The CFR says it has to get its act together and dispense more palatable propaganda — for instance, that there is more mercury in a tuna sandwich than the flu shot.
When was the last time you injected a tuna sandwich directly into your bloodstream?
One has to wonder if the members of the CFR symposium actually believe this nonsense or if they are peddling it because they think it will sell vaccines to the sheep. The 1500 percent increase in autism since 1991 is directly related to thimerosal in vaccines, not the consumption of tuna salad.It is not clear if the academics in the video got their shots. If they believe the vaccine is safe and we are crazy, they should grab their kids and rush down and ask for a shot from one of the multi-dose bottles of the H1N1 vaccine, which contain thimerosal.
In New York, all injectable versions of the shot will contain thimerosal.
We shouldn’t expect the CFR to tell us the truth about the danger of vaccines. For instance, the Norwegian Medicines Agency is reporting that people are suffering serious side effects from the Pandemrix vaccine. “Numbness, dizziness, loss of taste and sense of smell, nausea and watering, are some of the first reported side effects of the swine flu vaccine in this country,” Dagbladet, a Norwegian newspaper reports. The Norwegian Medicines Agency has received reports that 21 people have suffered serious or unusual side effects. “In addition Medicines Agency said that many patients have struggled to come forward with reports of side effects.”
In other words, the true number of people suffering from side effects remains to be seen. However, numerous cases of serious reactions to the vaccine are now appearing, although the corporate media plays these down as rare occurrences.
No matter. The CFR, the CDC, and the government expect you to play Russian roulette with your health.

According to the CDC, swine flu infections have already peaked, and the pandemic is on its way out. Peak infection time was the middle of October, where one in five U.S. children experienced the flu, says the CDC. Out of nearly 14,000 suspected flu cases tested during the week ending on October 10, 2009, 99.6% of those were influenza A, and the vast majority of those were confirmed as H1N1 swine flu infections. (http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/)
Even though the H1N1 pandemic appears to have peaked out, U.S. President Barack Obama has now declared a national emergency over swine flu infections. The reasoning behind such a declaration? According to the White House, it’s designed to "allow hospitals to better handle the surge in patients" by allowing them to bypass certain federal laws.
Emergency powers trump the Bill of Rights
That’s the public explanation for this, but the real agenda behind this declaration may be far more sinister. Declaring a national emergency immediately gives federal authorities dangerous new powers that can now be enforced at gunpoint, including:
• The power to force mandatory swine flu vaccinations on the entire population.
• The power to quarantine an entire city and halt all travel in or out of that city.
• The power to enter any home or office without a search warrant and order the destruction of any belongings or structures deemed to be a threat to public health.
• The effective nullification of the Bill of Rights. Your right to due process, to being safe from government search and seizure, and to remain silent to avoid self-incrimination are all null and void under a Presidential declaration of a national emergency.None of this means that federal agents are going to march door to door arresting people at gunpoint if they refuse the vaccine, but they could if they wanted to. Your rights as an American are no longer recognized under this national emergency declaration.
The declaration of this national emergency seems suspicious from the start. Where’s the emergency? The number of people killed by swine flu in the United States is far smaller than the number of people killed each year from seasonal flu, according to CDC statistics. People obviously aren’t dropping dead by the millions from H1N1 influenza. Most people are just getting mild flu symptoms and a few days later they’re fine.
So where’s the emergency?
I find the timing of all this curious. Two days ago, New York gave up on its efforts to require mandatory vaccinations of health care workers. This was designed to defuse a large number of planned protests from health freedom-conscious people who don’t want government-mandated chemicals pumped into their veins.
The planned protests in New York would have fueled yet more resistance among health care workers across the country, and had it been allowed to continue, it could have resulted in a huge nationwide backlash against swine flu vaccines. By backing off the vaccine mandate and blaming it on a vaccine shortage (http://www.naturalnews.com/027313_N…), and then having Obama declare a national emergency, our state and national leaders have halted the protests and put in place a pro-vaccine Big Brother mandate that can be enforced at gunpoint.
Big Pharma must be pleased with all this. With these emergency powers in place, all that’s necessary to force vaccinations upon the entire population is a larger supply of the vaccines — and that’s coming in November.
