cafe BSA

Fairly fresh out of the service I finally got a chance to scratch that itch to own a motorcycle. Typical Ted, it couldn’t be one of the popular Hondas or Harleys. Somehow a Triumph 650 Bonneville was my ideal. I found a nearly-affordable BSA 650 Thunderbolt in the newspaper want-ads and, not knowing any difference, took an irresistible test drive. Not that I could wring anything out of it in my early motorcycle days, but the feel, sound, balance and agility were immediately apparent. Love at first ride. The transformative event in our relationship was when I decided it needed a tuneup (probably didn’t, but I worked like that). I found a Danish import Brit-Bike lover… How much for a […]

riot on-off switch

Everyone saw the mini-riots when “a computer glich” disrupted the EBT card functions in several different places. In one test, the cards had no limit. Cool, just fill up the cart with authorized “food products”. Food poured out of the stores in a feeding frenzy of pantry-filling for poor folks. In another test, the cards did not work at all. Panic, fear and anger exploded into widespread looting. Food and non-food items were taken out the door with no pretense of paying for it. In both cases, control was impossible in the short term and was restored by empty shelves or locked doors or major police response along with locked doors and empty shelves. I suspect the one the planners […]

first responders

I was making good time as was my wont on windy roads, perhaps making up for a late start too. I am a very focused driver regularly and at full-chat even more so, but as I braked for the sharp turn something off to the left through the bushes and trees didn’t look right. Powering out of the turn, I knew what it was, turned off and slid to a stop in the wide gravel driveway. I jumped out of The Speedster, bounded through the gate and up to the tinderbox porch attached to the old mobile home. Mom and 3 or 4 little kids were huddled, staring at the approaching grass fire like deer in the headlights. I got […]

police state poster

If your Internet circles overlap mine, you may have already seen this bit of bad news. While no evidence has surfaced to prove Homeland Security bought these things, their target supplier has produced them. Using them for target practice is perfectly consistent with the rest of their police state activities. You grew up with these guys. They were the ones torturing small animals to death, beating up smaller kids, testing the limits of meanness that could be called “it was just a joke” and kicking the dog when nobody was watching. Now their bosses empower and enable their antisocial behaviors on a scale nobody else imagined possible. Are you going to take the threat seriously now? […]

banking history

This was a major undertaking. I undoubtedly missed most of it and likely got a few details wrong, but you can get a whole lot of “What the heck happened to our money, our free country and our world” right here. I strongly encourage you to share. I will use this as a reference work for a long time to come. I encourage you to do that too. These are the strings that control the puppet show 48 B.C. Julius Caesar took back from the money changers the power to coin money and then minted coins for the benefit of all. With this new, plentiful supply of money, he established many massive construction projects and built great public works. By […]

This was a major undertaking. I undoubtedly missed most of it and likely got a few details wrong, but you can get a whole lot of “What the heck happened to our money, our free country and our world” right here. Don’t be put off by the ancient start, I fast-forward quickly into much more relevant stuff. I strongly encourage you to share. I will use this as a reference work for a long time to come. I encourage you to do that too. These are the strings that control the puppet show 48 B.C.

house of rothschild

I would merely put the link to the original page here, but just in case something causes that site to go down, I want the history to remain available. It is that serious and that important. What follows is a copy of it without the links, some background and some graphics. I’ll insert a important caveat here: This article required me to ignore or downplay a significant amount of religious stereotyping. I personally think an overly-large broad brush was applied to the role of the Jewish religion, but find little else to doubt here. It is perfectly synchronized with many other books and Internet publications from agents who have witnessed business on the dark side. Go see the original here. […]
