We’ve been busy haven’t we! At the local Cafe, and a dozen other places where we take our breaks with our friends and neighbors to compare notes and news and progress reports, there’s been the most gratifying concurrence among the busy people getting things done. We agree, this is a historic example of an Harmonic Convergence: We see the exact correlation between the local clueless authorities and the county, state, and federal governments ALL struggling in their ignorance, lack of education, conventional limited awareness & INTENTIONAL failing to keep peace, working against any support, inspiration or opportunity AT HAND, thwarting enterprise, and ignoring the wide range of solutions, resources, talents, and potentials -to preserve the ‘staus quo’ and the good old boys network of ranchers & politicians in a county [& country of NO accountability] where there has NEVER been an audit of [the Fed] a single real-estate appraisal, ever! We Share the reality, (when one finally leaves that corrupt culture & through honest work and accomplishments in defiance of their every scheme, this gains us also the objectivity to conclude) that the "Wake Up Call" thundered long ago, and those who did not heed the clear writing in the sky, who can’t see the lesson in TODAY…fall into that funny category- "If you have to ask, you will never know."

Proud To Be American? You Should Be Ashamed

The Market Ticker
June 15, 2009

We have seen the largest looting operation in history perpetrated against The American People.

Over $5 trillion dollars in junk securities were marketed and sold. 
They had a real value of about $2 trillion dollars; the other $3
trillion, roughly, was pure fiction.

The banks created and sold these throughout the world, with the full
knowledge and support of Congress, The Fed, and the banks themselves.

It was pure fraud.

Granting someone a “mortgage” based only on whether they can fog a
mirror is proof positive of malfeasance, unless you disclose this fact
to the buyers of these securities – a fact that was not disclosed until
after the securities blew up.

Lenders, builders and others pressured appraisers to “hit the
numbers” to support these fraudulent deals.  Proof of that is found in
the nearly-10-year-old Appraisers Petition bearing thousands of
appraiser signatures. 

That ratings were a “mistake”, either real or intentional, is a matter of now-known historical fact.

Americans have sat on their butts through all of this, allowed their
401ks and IRAs to be trashed, their supposed “home values” to be pumped
and then destroyed, and their hopes, dreams, employment and house have
all vanished into the ether of fraud.

When this came to light the banks went to Congress, and supported by
The Fed’s intentional draining of liquidity to create an immediate
“crisis”, they got a $700 billion bailout bill passed – one that you,
your children and grandchildren, will have to pay for.

The government then passed another near-trillion-dollar “stimulus”
bill claimed to hold unemployment to 8%.  It did not, because it was
yet another “papering over” of the fraud, but that bill your children
and grandchildren, along with you, will also pay.

Your savings accounts and CDs now yield an effective zero. 

Your credit card interest rates have gone from 11% to 29%, all so
that the banks can keep granting ill-advised credit to people who can’t
pay.  Those who can pay – the rest of you – are being jacked for 30% a
year in interest.

We have seen a few “tea parties” in which a few people showed up and
which were immediately panned by “those in power” as “astroturf.”

Contrast with this.

A few days ago, Iran held an election.  It is alleged that there was
massive fraud.  The current President claimed victory under
less-than-clear circumstances.

The people said “hell no!” in this sort of demonstration:

That’s about 2 million people, out of 70 million population (roughly), or one in thirty-five Iranians in the entire nation who took to the streets to demand justice in a simple vote.

More strikingly, Tehran has a population of roughly 12 million; this means that one in six citizens of the city are standing in that crowd.

This, despite the fact that the government there has been shooting
people, has arrested the opposition party and issued an order to burn
the ballots so there can be no recount.

This, despite the fact that the Iranian population does not enjoy a
Second Amendment, and thus is forced to fight a rogue government with
makeshift molotov cocktails, rocks and clubs, should that rogue
government choose to shoot.

And this was about an election.  A President.  One man.

In our nation we have literally had 1/3rd of our GDP – that is, 1/3rd of everything you worked for last year – stolen by a bunch of fraudsters with the explicit cooperation and assistance of the government.

We should be seeing 10 million Americans literally closing
Washington DC with peaceful protest in the streets – making the
entirety of the downtown inaccessible to vehicles and the normal
conduct of business impossible, were Americans to display the same sort
of anger over an insult vastly more serious than that served upon the Iranian people.

If one in sixAmericans had enough in
America’s big cities, there would be one million people in the Streets
of Chicago – enough to fill Chicago’s Loop from Lake Michigan to
I-90/94 and from The Chicago River to beyond Soldier Field, rendering
the city core impassable.  (Roughly double
the crowd that shows up for the 4th of July Fireworks, to put it in
perspective.  “Greater Chicagoland” has a population of ~7 million)

The same in NY City would result in a crowd of 3.3 million people.

Where are you America?

In America, if the government turns into a goon squad, you have the
constitutionally-protected ability to shoot back.  In Iran you have no
such ability as the Iranian government has never recognized the
unalienable rights as set forth in our Declaration.

So in Iran the population risks mass death to protest.

In America the population risks loss of some income since you’d have to cut work.

The Iranians take to the streets; we take to our couches and have another beer.

Grow a pair of balls America.

The people of Iran are putting us to shame.

PS: Those threats appear not to have been idle either:

IS it any wonder now, why the little communities like our mining camp are being created by unusual gatherings of visionary but practical people, well grounded in resource management and independent country living? Where else today can one be TRULY WEALTHY, distinct from having that problematic unstable paper currency? Besides, given the strangeness of public behaviors lately, and common-sense concerns for contamination, food safety, air-borne & water-borne pharmaceutical influences, effects of high stress & propaganda, etc. who’s to doubt that drug-contaminated paper currency ISN’T making people crazy? Maybe that’s why getting your hands dirty in the garden might be a lot better for all than many imagine. Fresh air for the mind is a good thing too!

LCU recommends, therefor, reading Mother Earth News and such, to get your mind aimed toward that set of small changes in THINKING that will aid your self-guided trail to connect with that set of subjects & circumstances that gives us all inspiration -that vision of Harmonious Convergence- with nature, life, and artful living, as well as with each other. MY SQUASH blossomed today!

Over the weekend, while we were fishing…

Good Morning, Campers, We sure enjoyed last night’s campfire story! The ludicrous news that greeted us this morning as we tried to eat breakfast had an immediate effect, as I imagine it is having -across the Planet…

That’s enough to change the menu, isn’t it!
We can’t wait to get back to the CAMP.
The Peaceful fishing, camping, hiking, star-gazing- did you see that fireball in Arizona!?…the crickets, the birds, the LACK
I repeat…the LACK of political military economic theaters, fake news, risky business, scandalously corrupt ‘government by scheme & dream’, local gossip, monetary fears…THE LIST GETS Proportionately longer the more Time one spends in the countryside.
The INVERSE SQUARE LAW predicts this effect- the further ‘away’ you get from the{take your pick:}magnet, light, planet’s gravity, bonfire, war, chaos, politics, religion, social delusion, disease-supporting population density, military target or activity (same thing), ignorance, greed, dishonesty, religious fanaticism, {see the list goes on and on when you take time to think about it…}
…the less INFLUENCE, control, impact, effect it can have–to the point where the geometric progression of the Force of Freedom means that after the first mile, you are leaving most of the hikers (and the social fumes) behind…

We found a video series worth watching:

U.S. releases secret nuclear list accidentally?

"The International Atomic Energy Agency in
Vienna is a unit of the United Nations whose mandate is to enforce a
global treaty that tries to keep civilian nuclear programs from
engaging in secret military work.

In
recent years, it has sought to gain wide adherence to a set of strict
inspection rules, known formally as the additional protocol. The rules
give the agency powerful new rights to poke its nose beyond known
nuclear sites into factories, storage areas, laboratories, schools, and
anywhere else that a nation might be preparing to flex its nuclear
muscle. The United States signed the agreement in 1998 but only
recently moved forward with its implementation. Thomas B. Cochran, a senior scientist in the nuclear program of the
Natural Resources Defense Council, a private group in Washington that
tracks atomic arsenals, called the document harmless. “It’s a better
listing than anything I’ve seen” of the nation’s civilian nuclear
complex, he said. “But it’s no national-security breach. It confirms
what’s already out there and adds a bit more information.”

To learn more about nuclear weapons, visit Trinity Atomic Web Site at:
http://www.envirolink.org/issues/nuketesting/



"Project TRINITY was the first detonation of a nuclear weapon. The plutonium-fueled implosion

device was detonated on a 100-foot tower at 0530 hours, 16 July 1945. The test, which occurred
on the Alamogordo Bombing Range in south-central New Mexico, had a nuclear yield
equivalent to the energy released by exploding 21 kilotons of TNT. It left a depression in the
desert 2.9 meters deep and 335 meters wide (1: 1,23).
People as far away as Santa Fe and El Paso saw the brilliant light of the detonation. Windows
rattled in the areas immediately surrounding the test site, waking sleeping ranchers and townspeople.
 To dispel any rumors that might compromise the security of this first nuclear test,
the Government announced that an Army munitions dump had exploded. However, immediately
after the bombing of Hiroshima, Japan, on 6 August 1945, the Government revealed to the public
what had actually occurred in the New Mexico desert (1: 33).
Nearly 6 years passed between the detonation of TRINITY at Alamogordo, New Mexico, on 16
July 1945, and the next CONUS nuclear test, ABLE of the RANGER series. The AEC had
considered establishing a continental test site in 1948 after SANDSTONE, as a way to reduce
construction and logistic costs, but rejected the idea after concluding that the physical problems
and domestic political concerns would be too complicated. When the Korean War began in the
summer of 1950, however, the AEC doubted that the Pacific could be used for nuclear weapons
testing because of the possibility of the Korean War expanding throughout the Far East, thus
endangering shipping lanes. On 13 July 1950, the AEC Chairman wrote the Chairman of the
Military Liaison Committee that the possibility of a national emergency required a joint effort by
the AEC and DOD to find a continental test site. The DOD agreed, and the search began for a
suitable site.
The AEC and DOD surveyed six sites within the continental United States before choosing the
Frenchman Flat area of the Las Vegas Bombing and Gunnery Range, renamed the Nellis Air
Force Range in 1956."
In 1949, the Soviet Union detonated its first atomic bomb, providing the impetus for the United
States to proceed with development of a bomb whose energy would come from the fusion, or
joining, of light elements. Such a weapon is also called a thermonuclear, or hydrogen, bomb.
The Atomic Energy Commission received Presidential approval for work in this area in January
1950 after lengthy debate in high defense circles over the feasibility and advisability of such
weapons (7: 21).
As the defense policy evolved in the early 1950s, two particular factors challenged the ability of
U.S. Armed Forces to defend American interests and to protect its allies during limited
hostilities:
·  The commitment of U.S. ground forces to the Korean peninsula
·  The inability of European allies of the U.S. to develop effective military capabilities.
In both cases, the United States experienced difficulties because of limitations in military
manpower, which emphasized the need for a new U.S. policy based not on large standing armies,
but on new technological advances, particularly in nuclear weapons (9: 25).
In 1951, the Chairman of the AEC strongly advocated the development of nuclear weapons for
tactical purposes. "We could," he asserted, "use an atomic bomb today in a tactical way against
enemy troops in the field, against military concentrations near battle areas and against other vital
military targets without risk to our own troops."
TUMBLER-SNAPPER was accordingly
designed both to advance the development of effective nuclear weapons and to train troops in
tactical nuclear warfare (9: 25).

The Shot, as witnessed aboard the various vessels at sea, is not easily described.
Accompanied by a brilliant light, the heat wave was felt immediately at distances of
thirty to thirty-five miles. The tremendous fireball, appearing on the horizon like the sun
when half-risen, quickly expanded after a momentary hover time and appeared to be
approximately a mile in diameter before the cloud-chamber effect and scud clouds
partially obscured it from view. A very large cloud-chamber effect was visible shortly
after the detonation and a tremendous conventional mushroom-shaped cloud soon
appeared, seemingly balanced on a wide dirty stem. Apparently, the dirty stem was due
to the coral particles, debris, and water which were sucked high into the air. Around the
base of the stem, there appeared to be a curtain of water which soon dropped back around
the area where the island of Elugelab [Eluklab] had been.


Except for one PROJECT 57 test, the safety experiments were conducted for the same purpose:
to determine the weapons’ susceptibility to nuclear detonation during accidents in storage and
transportation. High-explosive portions of these devices were fired to simulate accidental
detonation and to determine the potential for such firings to result in a significant nuclear yield.
The test results were used to develop devices that could withstand shock, blast, fire, and
accidents without initiating a nuclear chain reaction and producing a nuclear detonation. The
initial PROJECT 57 test was conducted to spread alpha-emitting material (plutonium) in a
defined area to study the biological effects of alpha radiation and to test monitoring and
decontamination procedures (22: 23,8).

DOD personnel participation during these experiments is difficult to determine. Although most
of the employees of LANL and LLNL were civilians, some DOD personnel also were assigned to
these organizations. In addition, some of the project activities engaged DOD participation.
Eight AFSWC personnel and two participants from the 50th Chemical Service Platoon
performed field work for one of the programs during PROJECT 57, the alpha-dispersion
experiment. Moreover, a DOD effects project was conducted at four of the safety experiments.
Other DOD participation involved cloud-tracking and cloud-sampling missions.

From the earliest days of nuclear research and nuclear weapons testing, scientists were aware of
the potential for peaceful applications of nuclear energy, including nuclear detonations. This
recognition became U.S. policy in the Atomic Energy Act of 1946, which stated that "atomic
energy is capable of application for peaceful as well as military purposes." The opportunity for
American scientists to apply nuclear detonations to peaceful ends was delayed, however, by
several factors, including the greater priority of developing efficient weapons applications,
concern over radioactive contamination, and international suspicion of the intent of the research.
Nevertheless, the AEC ultimately succeeded in initiating the PLOWSHARE Program, which had
been planned in the late 1950s (25: 19,17,18).
The PLOWSHARE detonations were designed to determine nonmilitary applications of nuclear
explosives. The primary potential use envisioned was in large-scale geographic engineering, in
such projects as canal, harbor, and dam construction, the stimulation of oil and gas wells, and
mining. GNOME was planned in part to provide information on the characteristics of an
underground nuclear detonation in a salt medium, while SEDAN was to extend knowledge on
cratering effects from detonations with yields of 100 to 200 kilotons. Considering the peaceful
objectives of PLOWSHARE,
 the AEC took the name of the program from the Bible:
 "And they shall beat their swords into plowshares" (Isaiah 2:4)

The ultimate goal of PLOWSHARE, the peaceful applications of nuclear explosives, was never
realized. The limited test ban treaty, signed on 5 August 1963 in Moscow, ended nuclear testing
in the atmosphere, on land, and underwater, although not underground. Hence, a number of the
PLOWSHARE experiments had to be canceled. Other contributing factors were changes in
national priorities, Government and industry disinterest in the program, public concern over the
health and safety aspects of using nuclear detonations for civil applications, and shortages of
funding (25: 26).
