Qantas won’t fly what China won’t like | Herald Sun Andrew Bolt Blog

This is ugly, and I fear it’s a glimpse of our future:

With all the attention on the engine failure aboard one of its A380 jumbo planes earlier this month, you would think Qantas doesn’t need any more bad publicity. But the tale of Sheridan Genrich, a flight attendant who was demoted for her religious beliefs, suggests that the Australian airline has a tin ear when it comes to dealing with China.
Ms. Genrich is a practitioner of Falun Gong, a form of exercise and meditation that Beijing has banned as an “evil cult.” During a 2008 stopover in Beijing, the authorities detained her for possessing the group’s literature. The airline then disciplined her for breaking a rule against “conveying newspapers” and transferred her to short-haul flights, despite her seniority and strong service record.

Ms. Genrich appealed to the Australian labor authorities, which last week ordered her reinstated. Fair Work Australia Commissioner Frank Raffaelli criticized the airline’s handling of the case, saying, “The implication of Qantas’s action is that there is a restriction on the practice of her spiritual beliefs in private, which is contrary to both Australian and international law.”....Read More

Gillard’s NBN case falls flat

Julia Gillard is forced to release some of the business case for her national broadband network, and the figures are huge:
THE National Broadband Network’s pledge to pay back $27.1 billion in taxpayer funds rests on the ability to sign up 8.3 million customers.
It also needs to get a favourable ruling for a business plan that extends its monopoly.
The NBN Co business case summary, released yesterday after pressure from independent senator Nick Xenophon, is short on detail on the rates of return the project will deliver or its pricing, and falls far short of the cost-benefit analysis the Coalition and prominent business leaders have been demanding.....Read more

A green plan to have us on bark soup | Herald Sun Andrew Bolt Blog

EVERY day seems to madder than the last. The latest: we’ll now pay farmers to grow stuff no one can eat.
Brilliant! What next? Spend $16 billion on an “Education Revolution” without hiring a single extra teacher?
Oops. Right. We did that last year.
But this surely is even crazier.
The latest scheme from Canberra, backed by both sides of politics, is to pay farmers to plant more trees to stop global warming.
The idea is that these trees take our wicked carbon dioxide from the air and capture it as wood for decades until they, er, die, rot and release it all back again. Or go up in smoke in a bushfire.......Read more

Monsanto The Poster Child of Corporate Manipulation Corruption and Deceit : Dr. Leonard Coldwell

Monsanto: The World’s Poster Child for Corporate Manipulation and Deceit

At a biotech industry conference in January 1999, a representative from Arthur Anderson, LLP explained how they had helped Monsanto design their strategic plan. First, his team asked Monsanto executives what their ideal future looked like in 15 to 20 years. The executives described a world with 100% of all commercial seeds genetically modified and patented. Anderson consultants then worked backwards from that goal, and developed the strategy and tactics to achieve it. They presented Monsanto with the steps and procedures needed to obtain a place of industry dominance in a world in which natural seeds were virtually extinct.

This was a bold new direction for Monsanto, which needed a big change to distance them from a controversial past. As a chemical company, they had polluted the landscape with some of the most poisonous substances ever produced, contaminated virtually every human and animal on earth, and got fined and convicted of deception and wrongdoing. According to a former Monsanto vice.....Read full article

Clive Hamilton’s War on Science « JoNova

It’s a strange, inside-out world. Poor Hamilton seems to suffer from a kind of public form of projection, where he inadvertently lumps skeptics with all his own failures. Everything he claims to be standing for, he unwittingly attacks. Everything he protests about is something he does himself, and in spades. Virtually every point is easily refuted, yet promoted with public money.

It’s quite an achievement. Hamilton is anti-science, intolerant, and hypocritical all at once, and his arguments collapse when measured against his own benchmarks. He resorts to name-calling, and rank speculation without basis or substantiation. The ABC betrays it’s wafer thin intellectual standards and bias by not noticing that Clive barely makes point that does not dispute itself.....Read full story

UN Blueprint: Dismantle Middle Class, Build World Government

A UN blueprint for putting the organization back at the forefront of global governance alarmingly reveals the agenda to re-brand global warming as “overpopulation” as a means of dismantling the middle classes while using “global redistribution of wealth” and increased immigration to reinvigorate the pursuit of a one world government.

United Nations Secretary General Ban ki-Moon and 60 of his top lieutenants met this past Labor Day at a secluded Austrian Alpine retreat in a bid to get the global warming agenda back on track after the dismal failure of Copenhagen.

The planning paper that was handed out to delegates at the conference was subsequently leaked to Fox News, and outlines a strategy of exalting “global redistribution of wealth” as the basis of the climate change agenda......Read more

Countering Propaganda Pending Global Treaty Threatens Free Internet, Fundamental Rights

(SteveWatson) – Over 90 academics, practitioners and public interest organizations from six continents have collectively warned that a secretive global treaty, currently being negotiated by governments of the world’s largest economies would see tight controls placed on the internet and would threaten other fundamental rights and freedoms.

The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) has received fleeting public attention, yet it has been quietly evolving for a number of years.

'Super Tax on banks? No thanks

There are some days it would be handy to know who the people are that make up the criteria for opinion polls and survey's.

You'd think having spent my entire career in finance, I'd be just the sort of person they're after for any marketing survey or opinion poll when it comes to Australia's finance sector.

However, as it turns out, working in finance disqualifies me - either that or the companies conducting the polls are regular readers of Money Morning.

So you can imagine my surprise - and I'm sure you'll be surprised too - when the latest survey revealed that nearly two thirds of Australians want a 'super tax' introduced to our banking sector.

Even the executive director of the company that conducted that poll was surprised. 'It was a concern Australians would accept higher taxes,' said John Roskam of Institute of Public Affairs. Oddly enough, the company is very firmly against any form of 'super profits' being applied to any industry.

What could make these 60% or so of Australians want a bigger tax imposed on them? Supposedly, this survey has ' a lingering hostility towards banks and the huge salaries of some executives.' Not only that, but this survey shows that some Australians resent the banks raking in theses enormous profits and think the government should tax them more to teach those greedy banks a lesson.

But here's the thing. The banking industry will just pass their new increased costs onto the consumer, which is, er, you and me.

It's actually pretty straight forward.

In fact, in response to the article, pretty much all of the sixty odd bloggers were against anything like this being introduced. They all seemed to understand exactly how any sort of 'super tax' on banks would affect them.

And the banks wouldn't lose a cent. They'd make sure that anything that ate into their profit margin would just mean the cost of their products would increase. Like I said, it's pretty straight forward.

But it makes you wonder why this, presumably small, group believe that taxing a profitable enterprise is a solution. I mean, did they honestly believe the Rudd government's slogan that taxing the miners would create a 'fairer Australia'?

Why is taxing a profitable business the only way to keep Australians happy? And what makes these few think that more tax on any business would be better for us?

When the super profit tax was in its infancy, there was never a mention of reduction in personal income taxes. And not one politician suggested lowering the GST. The only 'bonus' was that business would pay 2% less tax per year. Chances are that your local 7-11 isn't about to pass on the new tax saving to their customers. No, it probably would have kept the extra 'profit' for them.

Or, that extra money from lower taxes might mean 7-11 can employ another person.

But this is the problem with taxing a business more because they make more money than 'normal' people. It's not a solution, and at the end of the day, just because the government might have more in its bank account, doesn't mean you get a say in how it's spent.

I mean, for example, how many millions of dollars has been wasted on Senator Conroy's internet filter? And so far not one single member of the Australian public has had a say in how their tax dollars are being spent on this project.

In fact Australians haven't even been consulted on this.

Or if you live in Victoria, over one billion dollars has been spent on the Myki debacle. And the transport ticketing system didn't even need 'fixing' or upgrading. But the state government believed that was an investment of your tax dollars and yet pretty much every commuter on public transport in Victoria would disagree.

And this is the biggest problem of allowing the government to tax you more.

If something like a 'super tax' was applied to the banks it's actually going to discourage you from spending any more money.

Think about it, if your personal banking costs get higher, it means that you have less money to spend on yourself. And we all know how important our spending is to the government! Or, all the extra costs of banking might now mean that you don't save as much.

The more money the government takes from you in the form of taxes, is, in the long term, only undermining your ability to choose how you want to spend or save your hard earned cash.

Taxing the banks won't stop them making less profit.

The only thing a 'super tax' on the banks will achieve is more money for the government to waste and less money in your pocket.

Money Morning

Australia is in full swing of a short election campaign so the associated spin and bull dust will be intense, promises being made that will never be kept and a cash strapped government putting out feelers to see what they can get away with if elected.

Diversions will be many, voters need to be aware that anything shelved ( hidden from discussion ) previously will be back on the agenda once balances of power have been sorted out.

The cancerous ugly carbon tax is making headlines again and won't be sorted until the masses have given a resounding no to this attempt to divert huge wealth rescources to banksters, fraudsters, dictators, "movie stars" like Al (Waterfront) Gore, hot air merchants and financial manipulators.

Will the Government Super-Tax You Next ?

Will the Government Super-Tax You Next?

We laughed yesterday.
We laughed the day before as well.
So yesterday's laughter was nothing new.
And surprise, surprise, we had another laugh this morning.
The reason we laughed yesterday was down to the front page of the Australian Financial Review (AFR).
Yes, sometimes Australia's premier business newspaper produces more laughs than the funny papers.
"Henry sees super profit taxes for all", yelped the headline.
That's what treasury secretary Ken Henry sees does he?
We've labelled Canberra's top pen-pusher as Emperor Henry in the past due to his apparent craving for power.
But it looks like we need to give him a new nickname.
What about Mystic Ken?
Or Madame Henry, the world famous fortune-teller.
If the federal budget needs topping up perhaps Lindsay Tanner could sell tickets for a Mystic Ken palm reading, "I see you paying more tax... now hand over the cash before I set the boys on you!" [puffs hard on cigarette].
Of course that wasn't all Mystic Ken had to say. It seems he's had enough of free speech too and wants to clamp down on it. Unless you happen to agree with his point of view naturally.
As reported by The Age, Mystic Ken blurted:
"Whenever an idea is ventured in public by a person... there's at least a handful of academics who will contest it... it is unbelievably frustrating, incredibly frustrating... there are occasions on which economists might, at least for a period, put down their weapons and join a consensus."
You can see why we laughed so much.
I don't know about you, but we always thought that a consensus was reached after discussions. A consensus is reached after everyone puts forward a point of view. Then there's a bit of give and take, followed by agreement of some sorts.
A consensus doesn't mean shutting up and just agreeing with the pen-pusher extraordinaire.
Besides, we don't like the consensus approach. We'd never agree to anything unless it was full blown free market capitalism. No compromise.
Incidentally, if you click on this link, it will take you directly to the article in The Age. The article is now headlined, "Back the tax, Henry tells economists". But that wasn't the original headline, as you can see from the link. Originally it was, "Keep shtum Henry tells economists".
Our resident German and editor of the Weekend Daily Reckoning, Nick Hubble tells us that, "Stum (pronounced shtum) is the German word for 'shut the hell up'."
We think that pretty much sums up the Mystic Ken approach. Perhaps he thinks he's created the Eleventh Commandment, 'Thou shalt not speak.'
Our laughter this morning was due to another The Age article. This time quoting Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) board member Warwick McKibbin.
It's a lengthy quote but it's worth repeating. Just for the fact that it's coming from a mainstream economist who is in such an influential position:
"I also disagreed with the scale of the stimulus package... It wasn't evidence-based policy; they panicked. The government rammed those decisions through the economy even though they were fraught with risk. No one was consulted about an alternative view and if you did say anything you were attacked by the Treasurer and the Prime Minister in public."
He went on:
"The stimulus created a problem. The government overspent but they had enough in reserve. Then they decided that because of politics they had to get their spending back so they could claim they had fiscal surplus - for which there is no economic basis, by the way - so they come up with a really badly designed resource tax to try and get the position to look good three years from now, and in the middle of a sovereign risk crisis exposed the economy to a reassessment of sovereign risk.
"The review of the tax system should have been independent of the Treasury and then critiqued by it and other economic agencies.
"Treasury, as far as I can tell, has become an arm of political policy. Historically they have always been the ones who have said, 'Wait a minute, this policy of subsidising green cars to try and save the constituents of a particular electorate is not a very sensible way to spend $8 billion.' You just don't see that now."
Look, I don't agree with everything McKibbin says, it's just good to see even the mainstream economists giving the stimulus spending a bit of a poke.
But anyway, as we see it, the Mystic Ken tax-'em-to-death approach is just all part of the idea that Australia has a bullet proof economy. Nothing ever could possibly go wrong. No amount of government fiddling and meddling could ever stuff things up.
As long as all the bureaucrats stick together everything will be fine.
In fact, as they see it, the private sector with its stupid profits and dopey productivity would have ruined the Australian economy for everyone.
Much better to take the money from the private sector and individuals and spend it on school buildings.
Or spend billions on housing insulation.
And billions on inflating the property bubble.
That's just the way it is.
Now Mystic Ken has had a fabulous thought. If the Resources Super Profits Tax is such a great idea, why not make all businesses pay it.
After all, it must be a good idea otherwise the government wouldn't have come up with it.
Make every business which earns so-called super profits pay a super tax. Remembering that anything above the risk-free government bond rate of around 6% is now considered a super profit.
Incidentally, that got us thinking. We checked out the term deposit rates yesterday afternoon. Turns out, would you believe it, that it's not only mining companies earning super profits...
It's those bloomin' scavenging pensioners too. Ooh, words can't disguise how furious your editor is that some pensioners and even ordinary people out there are earning a super profit.
Get this, Dutch bank Rabobank is even aiding and abetting these individuals by offering 6-month term deposit rates of, wait for it, a super profitable 6.31%. If the government doesn't come down hard and tax that super profit it'll be a disgrace.
But if you think that's bad, it gets worse.
Those greedy saving pensioners are earning anything up to a whacking great 7.3% on a term deposit with Rabobank. And what have they done to deserve that super profit?
Sure, they've worked thirty, forty or maybe even fifty years. And sure, maybe they've paid a whole bunch of taxes along the way.
And sure they've put their neck on the line, but heck, what are they doing now? Nothing. They're sitting back and earning interest like, erm, interest earning do nothing-ers.
It's time for the savers to be punished for saving. Those savings are really other people's money.
I mean, where does that interest come from? It comes from exploiting those that go into debt just so these savers can lord it up at the bowls club or at the bingo. Has there ever been a greater sin than living in retirement off the proceeds of interest?
We think not. Tax it. No, don't tax it. Super-tax it.
In fact, super-tax the whole darn economy.
Except housing of course, because we don't want that bubble popping do we...

Bilderberg group will conduct its annual meeting June 3-6 in Sitges, Spain

By James P. Tucker, Jr.

The Bilderberg group will conduct its annual meeting June 3-6 in Sitges, Spain (a small, exclusive resort town about 20 miles from Barcelona) behind a wall of armed guards who will seal off the resort in a futile attempt to keep the event secret.

Bilderberg’s meeting will follow that of its brother group, the Trilateral Commission, which will gather at the Four Seasons Resort in Dublin, Ireland May 6-10. Leaders of Bilderberg also attend the Trilateralists’ meeting to map their common agenda. About 300 attend Trilateral Commission meetings, which are conducted behind sealed-off, guarded floors of their hotel. About 100 will attend Bilderberg, which seals off the entire resort behind platoons of uniformed police and private security.

Bilderberg hopes to keep the global recession going for at least a year, according to an international financial consultant who deals personally with many of them. This is because, among several reasons, Bilderberg still hopes to create a global “treasury department” under the United Nations. Bilderberg first undertook this mission at its meeting last spring in Greece, but the effort was blocked by nationalists in Europe and the United States. “Nationalists” (a dirty word in Bilderberg) objected to surrendering sovereignty to the UN.

AFP’s source pointed to the words of French President Nicolas Sarkozy in a March 29 speech at notoriously left-wing Columbia University, where he said, “We should invent a new global monetary order.”

He was clearly referring to the recently proposed world “treasury department.”

Bilderberg’s ultimate goal remains unchanged: Turn the UN into a world government with “nation-states” becoming merely geographic references. The European Union is to become a single political entity, followed by the “American Union” and, finally, the “Asian-Pacific Union.” The “American Union” is to include the entire Western Hemisphere, including Cuba and other offshore islands.

Like the EU, the “AU” will have a legislature, executive commission and head of state which can impose laws on member nations. There is to be an EU-like common currency, removing each member state’s symbol of sovereignty. The “Asian-Pacific Union,” or “APU,” is to follow a similar path.

But growing public awareness of the evil agenda of Bilderberg and the Trilateralists has emerged as a significant barrier. For decades, until 1975 when The Spotlight emerged, the blackout was 100 percent complete worldwide. (The Spotlight is AFP’s lineal ancestor.)

Today, in Europe, major metropolitan newspapers and broadcast outlets give both groups heavy, front-page attention. In the United States, independent newspapers and broadcast stations give Bilderberg extensive coverage.

But the major newspapers and network broadcasters maintain a complete blackout in the United States. That’s because their executives have attended these meetings on lifetime promises of secrecy. The hypocritical owners of The Washington Post have attended since 1954. The Post’s chairman, Donald Graham, and associate editor, Jimmy Lee Hoagland, have attended each meeting for years.

But as public awareness grows, so does patriotic resistance. There is strong resistance throughout Europe to increasing the powers of the EU at the cost of national sovereignty. In the United States, there is growing resistance to the proposed North American Free Trade Agreement, which would eliminate borders between the United States, Mexico and Canada. NAFTA is to expand, under Bilderberg-Trilateral plans, to include the entire hemisphere and evolve into the “American Union.”

In the 1990s, Bilderberg was confident that the “American Union” would be established by the year 2000. A decade later, they are still fighting—and losing— the battle.

AFP correspondent James P. Tucker Jr. is a veteran journalist who spent many years as a member of the “elite” media in Washington. Since 1975 he has won widespread recognition, here and abroad, for his pursuit of on-the-scene stories reporting the intrigues of global power blocs such as the Bilderberg Group.

Freedom from crisis driven hoaxes

One insidious aspect of huge government is its ability to so overwhelmingly fund a cause that it perverts it. The perverted cause becomes a government-supported industry whose purpose is to grow and feed itself like the rest of government. Its power, control and money grow at the expense of all we hold dear - like freedom, individual rights, productivity - but most especially, truth.

This article summarizes essential points of this aspect for the Global Warming fraud and the crisis-driven government-industry complex it has spawned.

The Global Warming Crisis is only one of several government-sponsored crises that have cut deeply into the rights, social structure, and productivity of the U.S and its citizens. It shows the 4-stage progression to oppression that huge government helps create for the power, control and money it offers itself and its affiliates.

Let me state these steps then tie them to what tyranny the global warming hoax has led us.

4 Stage Progression of Government-Supported Crisis to Tyrannical Control Massive government funding leads through 4 stages to a government and crisis-based affiliated complex that exercises tyrannical control over citizens. These stages are:

*Stage 1: A cause is identified for government funding - from a few facts found

*Stage 2: Cause is propagandized as a crisis for urgent solutions and government funding - from distorted projections of few facts

*Stage 3: Both funding and crisis-justified privileges instigate burgeoning agency affiliations. More facts are sought in support of the cause while crisis-justified privileges are demanded that negate freedom and rights of others. Propaganda grows and a party-line develops at the expense of facts and freedom.

*Stage 4: Government and the crisis-based affiliates form an incestuous complex exercising crisis-justified tyrannical control and power. Propaganda becomes essential for continuation and growth of primarily government funding. Facts are perverted to support the 'party-line' while opposing facts are suppressed. Those opposing the party-line are scorned and vilified.

The end result is a crisis-driven conglomerate of industries and agencies which is effectively a government- supported tyranny based on propaganda and the suppression of the 'facts', the truth, and people's freedoms.

Global Warming's stage 1 started from a study that showed temperatures were increasing - and more so as time went on. Stage 2 began with attributing the warming to increasing carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere - trapping heat just like the glass of a greenhouse traps heat to keep the plants warm. But when the rising carbon dioxide appeared to track man's rise in industrial outputs it made global warming a man-made crisis. Funding takes off.

In Stage 3 countries setup agencies to deal with global warming and held international meetings to find ways to control future energy use. The 'carbon footprint' came into being. Extensive funding for global warming facts, projections, and solutions gave us 'global warming-friendly' ones. The party-line perverted results and interpretations while pushing for more control over people and industries. Global warming propaganda grows to convince the people it's all settled science and those opposing it are crackpots. Government funding rises.

Stage 4 explodes on the scene with national and international programs and meetings to decide how politicians and money-hungry scientists will control industry. Unlimited and endless funding is forthcoming for all those 'on board' the Global Warming train with hundreds of billions-of-dollar-consequences to our industrial lives. The propaganda has the public and media on board.

The Fraud Exposed:

Fortunately, many brave scientists objected to and proved how fraudulent or irresponsible the facts and assertions that supported global warming were. They did it on their own 'dime', and faced being labelled heretics defying the 'settled science' and threatened with loss of their positions and future prospects too.

But it was only when the emails exchanged among the global warming proponents were 'hacked into' that 'Climate-Gate' became a major media issue. The emails made it clear that concerted effort was going into covering up opposing data. Global Warming scientists had intimidated scientific journals to keep sceptics from publishing, and they had altered data to make the phony case for man-made global warming. NASA's Goddard Institute even stonewalled freedom-of-information efforts to hide the fraud and keep the money flowing.

A government funded crisis-based affiliate complex can pervert science and restrict truth to achieve their ends of money, power and control.

What we're left with:

We're left with much of the crisis-based complex. With the power they've assumed, they're spinning their way out of 'Global Warming' into 'Climate Change' to justify their support. It's almost impossible to tear this apparatus down. We're left with more government control and less freedom.

This is how big government grows bigger and more tyrannical. The divorce and domestic violence complex is another government-supported fraud that followed the same pattern.

It's time to expose frauds and reduce government. It's bigness is harmful to sustaining freedom.

Freedom to say no to Vaccines

One year ago this month, The Washington Post ran a story that not only extolled the use of the influenza vaccines but pushed for a new and improved version by saying, "Why wait for the pandemic to benefit from better flu vaccines?"(1) The story went on to say that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is planning to strengthen the flu shot "destined for the elderly" by adding an immune-boosting compound to the shot called an adjuvant.

An adjuvant is a substance added to produce a high antibody response using the smallest amount of virus (antigen) possible. By definition adjuvants are considered to be "pharmacologically active drugs." They are designed to be "inert without inherent activity or toxicity" and yet they are required to "potently augment effects of the other compounds" in the vaccines. It is difficult to explain how a substance can be defined as "pharmacologically active" and at the same time be described as "inert and have no activity or toxicity."

The limiting factor for approval of new adjuvants has been that most are far too toxic for use in humans. However, one adjuvant has been approved in Europe and its approval is on the way for use in the U.S. It is an oil-based adjuvant called MF-59, a compound primarily composed of squalene.

On first blush, squalene seems like a good choice for an adjuvant. Manufactured naturally in the liver, squalene is a precursor for cholesterol. In addition, squalene can be purchased at health food stores in its more commonly known form, "shark liver oil." However, ingested squalene has a completely different effect on the body than injected squalene. When molecules of squalene enter the body through an injection, even at concentrations as small as 10 to 20 parts per billion, it can lead to self-destructive immune responses, such as autoimmune arthritis and lupus.(3)

Several mechanisms have been proposed to explain this reaction. Metabolically, squalene stimulates an immune response both excessively and nonspecifically. More than two dozen peer-reviewed scientific papers from ten different laboratories throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia, and Australia have been published documenting the development of autoimmune disease in animals subjected to squalene-based adjuvants.(4) A convincing proposal for why this occurs includes the concept of "molecular mimicry" in which an antibody created against the squalene in MF59 can cross react with the body's squalene on the surface of human cells. The destruction of the body's own squalene can lead to debilitating autoimmune and central nervous system diseases.

The squalene in MF59 is not the only cause for concern. One of its components, Tween80 (polysorbate 80) is considered by vaccine manufacturers to be "inert" but is far from it. A study published in December, 2005 discovered that Tween80 can cause anaphylaxis, a sometimes fatal reaction characterized by a sharp drop in blood pressure, hives, and breathing difficulties. Researchers concluded that the severe reaction was not a typical allergic response characterized by the combination of IgE antibodies and the release of histamines; it was caused by a serious disruption that had occurred within the immune system.(5)

Vaccine manufacturer Chiron is already using MF59 in its European influenza vaccine for seniors called Fluid(TM). It remains to be seen if Chiron will gain approval for using this adjuvant-containing vaccine in the U.S. In the mean time--and for the first time--all children from age six months to five years will be targeted for the flu shot this fall. Expect even more children to be on the vaccine list as early as 2007; discussions are underway to mandatorily vaccinate the healthy five to nine year-old group as a school requirement.

A record 121 million doses of flu vaccine was produced for the 2006-2007 flu season and production is being ramped up to 140 million doses for the coming flu season. Be prepared for a huge push to get everyone vaccinated this fall. Consider it to be psychological pre-conditioning. The plan is to get each person ready--and eager--to roll up their sleeve for an injection of the "pandemic" flu vaccine when it becomes available.

Retaining freedom of choice will become increasingly important for those who want to refuse. Get politically active by joining the American Association for Health Freedom at health freedom, the organization on Capitol Hill that lobbies for a person's right to choose and the practitioners right to practice. Self-appointed experts at the WHO and the CDC who really believe the only way to survive a pandemic to be inoculated with viruses and chemicals will be pressuring you to comply. Don't let the bird flu vaccine become mandatory in your State.

When the media begins to, once again, shriek about the coming bird flu pandemic by urging everyone to be vaccinated, remember that the bird flu vaccine will be largely untested. Worse, it will be no more effective than the annual flu shot and there is a high probability it will contain MF-59.

Discipline equals Freedom

There is no better mantra for the procrastinator than discipline equals freedom. As a human you can only do so many things in a day. As a entrepreneur you let some of the things you have to do as a human override the time you need to generate business. What is one to do? Schedule. Discipline. Follow through. I have a knee jerk reaction to a tight schedule because I think it takes away from my freedom. That evil schedule has me doing all kinds of things I don't want to do and I have to do them because they are on the schedule. Not necessary. Make your schedule YOUR schedule. The secret to enjoying your day is to include enjoyment in time slots.

For example get your morning underway with waking up- giving your self time to do so and how you do it. Then start small- try scheduling 30 minutes of staring at the wall. Just try it. About 5 minutes into it you will be going crazy- I have this to do and then this and then.....breath. Keep staring. You will realize that you can't do it yet throughout the day you will do it to avoid something else. Don't avoid it.

The next day try a 5-10 minute break every hour. You will think you get no work done- take the break. Walk in a circle just take the break. By scheduling in fun and 30 minutes here and there in your day to watch a cartoon- cruise YouTube, check the failblog and other activities that seem to be unproductive you will find that they release the tension set out at the beginning of the day and you have ample time to stay on track- write that article or call that person. When you set up from 1 p.m. in the afternoon until 3 p.m. as the time to call people back you train your self and them that is your talk time- everyone including yourself will have freedom before and after that slot. Your brain space will be open to new ideas and have stare at the wall time to think about whatever.

With this type of disciplined scheduling comes freedom and with that you have a day full of fun, breathing in between lifting and look at the end of the day what you have accomplished both for your sanity and the to do list.

To Freedom!

Financial Freedom

"Financial Freedom" - The magical buzz words, lot of you might have heard yelled at you in radio's or whenever you attend a finance or investment seminars. It is very lightly used these days without any weight to the actual concept. Let us put some thoughts together to dwell on to understand better.

What does it exactly mean to be Financially Free?

I know many of you have the answer just right under your collar. That is, Financial freedom means "Earn more so I don't have to count each dollar I spend and not worry about paying my expense every month" Or "Make more money to spend like there is NO tomorrow".

Is that the answer you got or something close to it?

If you think you got the right answer, please I am sorry to say that you are wrong. It's not just you got the answer wrong, it's just general outlook is not syn with reality. When you search Google. You get the first result from Wikipedia as "Financial freedom describes a well-planned lifestyle where one no longer is required to work for income to cover their expenses...."

It's not just you you got it wrong. It's the people who started it all out and echo everyday so it is easy for them to mold to their own view point.

Like many of you I also thought that's the answer few years ago. We all think if we have more money that will solve all the problems. No, its not going to solve it. It's going create more problems and even bigger worries.

Financial freedom is not about having or earning more and spend whenever for whatever you want. According to me, "It' is all about being content with what you have(earn) now and manage to work within the boundary instead of stretching it long to get in debt". Its being self sufficient with the money you have and manage to spend wisely for all the expenses and grow it efficiently for the future. That's what I call Financial Freedom.

You might even have million dollars. If you don't manage it wisely, it will vanish in a month. With that million dollar comes great power and lot of responsibility. If you are not responsible enough to manage it, you will fail pretty soon and you still won't get to sleep well at night.

Let me take a simple example. For a scenario, we assume an average middle class American earns on average of $40,000 - $50,000 a year. If he makes an habit to work with this income limitation and make proper planning to take care of all the expenses and also manage to grow some money(10%) for the future that's what I call financially free. If you don't have debt you can't pay off and you have ability to manage and grow your hard earned money, that's simply financial free in its own version.

Our schools or college system, never teaches us lot about Money management unless you opt for finance course. Yet it will be more theoretical, money lessons can only be learned in a hard way by practical means. But you don't have to learn only from your experiences and mistakes, you can also learn from others mistakes. That's a wise way.

So don't make the mistakes others are making by going beyond your boundary unless you have the guts to pull back otherwise you will be in deep deep debt by inviting trouble. Watch out folks, don't just take the advise of you finance guru's or planners. Give it a thought and you will dwell on something on your own.

Seems that governments of various persuasions will stop at no ends in their perpetuation of the global warming hoax, designed to lump many citizens of the world with an evil tax that will extort even more cash out of their pockets.

Effectively this is an air tax and combined with an emission trading scheme it is really an attack on the freedom of the battlers in the world and will no doubt create many millionaires and billionaires as the wealth and power manipulators find a new method of grabbing even more wealth from powerless citizens.

The ASA in England has banned some government advertisements that may have falsely misled folks about the extent of global warming following many complaints from concerned citizens.
