Full story: Santa Cruz Sentinel

A Mississippi judge jailed a lawyer for several hours for refusing to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, ordering the attorney to "purge himself" of contempt by standing and repeating the oath like the rest of the courtroom.

This coming from the guy who has already said he is intentionally unemployed.

The economy is designed by the big holding companies and the biggest consumer is the government. In order to keep the people employed we need fear of war and war to use old weapons so the new generation can be manufactured.
Without a gullible military force we would lose the fear and wars. We would have to compete with brains. Unemployed does not mean not absence of an earned income. Employment is for slaves.

“It is unbelievable that politicians like Mayor Bloomberg think that they are experts on personal protection,” Raso says in the video.“Me and the guys I fought with, we didn’t go to war so that some politician could dictate whatever he thinks is best for the American people.”

That is exactly why you got duped to go to war.

You assume that I didn't know this to be the case before I joined the military.

Is this the case, or did I know full well that it was so?

Oh no, Rite, you have to understand that working for a living is for suckers, but when he works for himself, he's not working for a living, he's intentionally unemployed but is employing himself... the whole thing becomes really very confusing unless you're as touched in the head as he is.

So the only choice is a multiple choice? A Skinner/Pavlov conditioning of standardized testing? The world is not a few teams you have to root for. Each individual contributes a unique flavor of humanity and we do not belong to countries. They belong to us.

In Tupelo 60% of the children are born to a single parent. This parent most likely depends on Government assistance. The government steals to make that happen. If we stop the government dependence we stop the stealing.

Ever create a patent? How about speaking or consulting? How about creating or art? You do not need to be employed to make a living from your own inspirations.

Taxes are also key to creating the first markets that operate on cash, since coinage seems to be invented or at least widely popularized to pay soldiers – more or less simultaneously in China, India, and the Mediterranean, where governments find the easiest way to provision the troops is to issue them standard-issue bits of gold or silver and then demand everyone else in the kingdom give them one of those coins back again. Thus we find that the language of debt and the language of morality start to merge.

***

How did this happen? Well, remember I said that the big question in the origins of money is how a sense of obligation – an ‘I owe you one’– turns into something that can be precisely quantified? Well, the answer seems to be: when there is a potential for violence. If you give someone a pig and they give you a few chickens back you might think they’re a cheapskate, and mock them, but you’re unlikely to come up with a mathematical formula for exactly how cheap you think they are. If someone pokes out your eye in a fight, or kills your brother, that’s when you start saying,“traditional compensation is exactly twenty-seven heifers of the finest quality and if they’re not of the finest quality, this means war!”

Money, in the sense of exact equivalents, seems to emerge from situations like that, but also, war and plunder, the disposal of loot, slavery. In early Medieval Ireland, for example, slave-girls were the highest denomination of currency. And you could specify the exact value of everything in a typical house even though very few of those items were available for sale anywhere because they were used to pay fines or damages if someone broke them.

But once you understand that taxes and money largely begin with war it becomes easier to see what really happened.

Says the person from the 4th fattest state in the Union. Sorry, but calling states out on being the fattest is like a kid a fat camp calling another kid out for being fat.....sorry, but we're all fat sh*ts now. I will say that our budget is balanced however, how about yours?

Mississippi't budget is balanced after the Governor takes in the welfare from Minnesota, New Jersey, Maryland,etc. For every dollar that Mississippians pay in income tax Washington sends back TWO from the workers in blue states, Pathetic. Mississippi's highways, bridges, schools, universities, football team uniforms, coaches salaries and cheerleader uniforms are just part of this states ENTITLEMENTS. Maybe the Governor should get food stamps.

Tomas Young's life nearly ended nine years ago when he was riding in the back of a water truck in Baghdad's Sadr City. Two rounds from a sniper's AK-47 hit him; the first severed his spinal cord and the second shattered his left knee.

Modern-day medicine saved him. A critically acclaimed 2007 documentary, "Body of War," made his injuries -- and objections to the Iraq war -- widely known.

Now, he lies again on the verge of death.

This time, he is not in a bed at Walter Reed Army Medical Center but on a futon in his home in Kansas City, Missouri. This time, no one is trying desperately to keep him alive. Young wants to die.

The Pledge of Allegiance was written to insult the elected representatives of the defeated Confederate states during reconstruction. The senators and representatives and judges from Mississippi and the other southern states, most of them veterans of the Confederate army, were forced to humiliate themselves by reciting the Pledge before they could be sworn in to their offices. And "under God" was not in the original Pledge. The Pledge of Allegiance tells southerners where they can stuff their "Stars and Bars" but the rednecks of Mississippi are too dumb to recognize an insult.
