- Let's look at numerous examples of greed, and how this
is the root of most of today's problems.
- * PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY EXAMPLE
- There is an emotional, deeply moving video  of
local people fighting a corporate takeover of their water supply system.
This trick was done under the guise of bringing in "consultants"
and "management" in Highland Park, Michigan to turn
the local economy around. A woman-consultant boasts on camera "I have
all the powers of a mayor," and that "dictatorial powers"
are needed to restore the community. I strongly recommend viewing
this video, because it has profound implications for thousands of local
- Take the money and run 
- To summarize for readers without broadband, local officials
in Highland Park turned their community over to a consulting group. This "consulting"
group takes (skims?) an astounding 90% of local government revenue for
themselves. Only 10% is left for government operation. Criminal to say
the least - and perhaps a violation of the RICO Act (racketeering)
or even a form of embezzlement.
- Although a financially-strapped community because of
the loss of Chrysler's automotive business, someone needs to file an emergency class
action suit ASAP to get their government back. Water bills have increased
60% and people can't pay them. Now they have attached water bills to property
taxes, and if you don't pay your water bill you will lose your property
(See video.) Surely this must be illegal, since it implies that a water bill
is another tax!
- More and more people have had their water turned off
in Highland Park. All this brings a new meaning to the term "collection
agency." These consultants will continue to pillage the community's
coffers until they are empty. Will they then start selling off the community
to other corporations, perhaps even foreign ones without any vote by the
public? Or just pack up and quietly leave town, looking for another innocent
community in economic trouble? Clearly their privatization and takeover
of a local government must be illegal in many ways.
- * OCEAN PORTS
- What we see Vancouver BC (Canada) may indeed be a harbinger
of things to come. In that city, the Chinese own and operate the
ports. This effectively makes these harbors foreign soil, almost like that
of an embassy. As such, local police may find it very difficult to monitor
illegal activities. How can real "security" exist when a henhouse
has been turned over to the wolves for management? Would anyone have thought
just 20 years ago, that any port in any city, anywhere on the globe, would
be controlled and run by a foreign government? There is now discussion
(and possible quiet passage of legislation) in Washington about doing the
same thing with NY, California and other ports as well. It would not be
surprising if it's already been passed as legal.
- * CORPORATIONS
- All corporations exist for just one purpose:
The greed of the shareholders. Those of us who have worked in business
at various levels know there are no emotions, no compassion. No kindness,
no love, no consideration. There is only pure logic and the bottom line.
What's the difference between a corporation and scum-sucking, bottom-feeding
Carp? Nothing. Corporations easily bring out the worst in everyone working
within them. Any employee of a corporation is always focused on personal
promotion, benefits and salary increases.
- Employees don't care where the money comes from, as long
as they get more. Often they will sell their soul to get ahead and make
co-workers look bad if required. Everyone and everything to them is a stepping
stone, and there are no rules. These people have Greed Disease
(GD) but go untreated. A 3,000 square foot home, three cars, an annual
trip to Europe (and of course $50,000 in credit card debt) isn't enough
for those with GD. They want more. More. More. More. These are often the
very same people that cut you off on the highway, or illegally take your
right of way at a traffic light. They are blind to disease and poverty
- until these curses come knocking at their door. Then they are
the first to scream "That's not fair. I didn't deserve it!"
- * OIL
- Our world isn't just filled with hate, hunger and poverty.
This is a world perhaps filled with more greedy people than those who are
compassionate. If that wasn't the case, then we wouldn't see organizations
in the media begging for people to make a monthly commitment to feed just
one starving child. The NWO has a simple grand plan: To mold and shape the
entire world into a new corporate welfare state, controlling all freedom,
housing, food and water. You will never hear from these weasels openly
in the media - until they feel their goals have been safely met.
- By re-engineering the world, they will force everyone
to seek out a pre-designated corporate teet to suck on. Again, greed is
the order of the day. When you're as filthy rich as the NWO people are,
you can buy anything you want. So what's left for excitement? Total
control of the masses. Perhaps the Knights Templar are still around - they
just have a different name and purpose. But greed is still greed, regardless
of the name of an organization.
- In Michigan, we see a perfect microcosm of things
to come. States all across America (and probably in other countries) are
selling off bridges and highways to private and public companies. That
way, the maintenance and rebuilding of this infrastructure is someone
else's problem. Toll roads will soon be everywhere on Interstate highways
and freeways, as corporations don't want to miss out plunging their greedy
nit-pickers into the pockets of out of state travelers just passing through.
What chicken-$hit way to solve a problem! The end result? More people
will lose state jobs which have salaries that people can live
off, while road-work will be done with the cheapest materials using
minimum wage help. This may sound odd, but there really IS a
skill to fixing a pothole right. The skill comes in doing it right the
first time - so it isn't an even larger pothole in just a few months. Potholes
may seem minor, but unfixed potholes require expensive, multi-million
paving jobs when the pavement damage is too extensive.
- * LABOR
- Some years ago, some clever MBA types were desperate
to make their companies look better because of executive and shareholder
pressure (greed.) These people at the major corporations streamlined manufacturing,
distribution and sales. All the big corporations did this to improve their
stock value. Two companies selling the same product are in competition,
and executives were pressured by shareholders (the greed factor again.)
So what could they do to top that? Robots and new production machinery
were brought in and used wherever possible, so more people could be laid
off. But still that wasn't enough, since a certain minimum number of people
are required to run and maintain any factory. So what did they do?
- * SLASHED WAGES
- These egomaniacs with no regard for human life, quickly
drove wages to the bottom. Strikes began when wages didn't increase to
meet a reasonable living standard. And when a "deal" between
a union and corporation couldn't be worked out? The company simply closed
the plant and opened another one somewhere else without a union, setting
wages at minimum wage. Then they began opening manufacturing plants in
China, who freely opened their doors to the west. We owe so much to
president Nixon for taking the hinges and latches off those doors.
- And what of existing labor laws that protect workers
here in America? These are all but gone. A friend of mine (a lawyer,
believe it or not) made a good living years ago specializing in labor law
and protecting employees. But back in 1985, he told me "labor laws
are all but gone. Too few people had a case anymore." Now he defends
DUI and DWI drivers almost exclusively. Corporate greed has yet won again
by quietly watering down and even dropping many labor laws to favor
corporations, all through the effective use of lobbyists.
- Greed is a prime motivator for the oil mess we're
in now, and for many of the problems the world has. About thirty years
ago, big cars with V8 engines were called "gas pigs." The culture
and media of that day encouraged people to scoff at those who owned one.
Compact cars were "in." No one even cared that those first
compact import cars were built like crap, and were far more unreliable
than an American car.
- * BIGGER VEHICLES WITH GAS PRICES RISING
- But in the mid 1980's, SUVs and custom vans became popular
again. And again, people were driving a new version of a "gas pig."
The only difference is that the new gas pigs have a different shape
than the old gas pigs ("A rose by any other name...) Yet any good
mechanic or knowledgeable driver will tell you that what the actual
miles per gallon a new vehicle's sticker states, and what it actually
gets, are two very different things. Many owners will tell you
they drive them because "it makes them feel safe."
- Numerous controlled crash tests have shown how easily
these vehicles roll over because many are top heavy. A steering wheel or
dashboard airbag does little to stop you from using your head as a battering
ram for a side window in a crash. A blow to the temple (side of the head)
is also an easy way to die. But we are supposed to believe that greed and
pride are far more important than family safety. And what do
you see in most vans and SUVs on the road? Just one passenger!
- And of course it takes massive amounts of oil
and gas to run all these vehicles. Someone in government once said, "Look
at the cars people drive today. They don't care where the oil and gasoline
comes from, just as long as they can buy it."
- * BASIC GREED AND SURVIVAL
- A good example of this is being in a grocery store
when a blizzard is starting. People frantically buy almost all food in
sight. They will squabble with each other over who had their fingers on the
last loaf of bread first. I have seen two women do this when both
reached for the last loaf of bread: One said, "It's mine!" The
other one yelled back, "But I saw it first!" and they argued briefly
until one of them gave in.
- Now imagine this same scene where government structure
crashes - and everyone rushes into every grocery store knowing that this
isn't just a temporary snowstorm, but a serious calamity that
will last for years. That will turn into sporadic gunfights and brawls
over the last products of ANYTHING on the shelves - including toilet paper.
Hence, martial law (and rationing) will be conveniently declared just before
this crash comes.
- What we see happening everywhere now is personal
and corporate greed. Corporations can program the masses through clever
marketing to virtually force them to buy their product. And even make them
think it's not possible to live without it. The cell phone is a perfect
example. It doesn't matter what the product is or even it's something
no one needs - corporations are experts at pushing the public's hot
buttons. Marketing has been turned into a specialized science. Teams
of psychologists work with marketing people to make you buy some worthless
product you've lived without your entire life, you'll never need and probably
don't even want.
- This has created the blue chip companies we all know
as household words today, and clearly illustrates the average person is just
plain stupid and will do whatever they're told to do, when insulted sufficiently
to do so. In thousands of churches on Sunday mornings, a minister
rants for half an hour, telling his congregation they're all
weak, damned and worthless sinners. Then he has unpaid droids pass
an offering plate to pay for the privilege of being hammered to hell by
his mouth. This is yet another good example of stupidity and the beaten
- Will God will have any compassion on that greedy man
in the robe with the big mouth, when that same man stands before Him
one day? Highly educated men and women - doctors, lawyers, dentists, and
surgeons are all sitting out there in church, in that beaten animal
crowd. On Monday morning these same professionals all return to their
full-time jobs as greed masters.
- The lawyers, fresh from church and Sunday school just
24 hours earlier, will go back to their work suing innocent hard working
people, taking away people's homes, cars and money. They revel in
this assuring themselves in their simple minds, "Boy it's great to
be a Christian! I'll be forgiven of this next Sunday all over again!"
Their day of reckoning will come, too. What goes around, comes around.
It doesn't require common sense, awareness or intelligence to earn a PhD.
What it mainly requires is money and the ability to tolerate many
years of school. You can have 5 PhDs and still comfortably sit in a pew
being hammered by a mouth attached to an amplifier. It's amazing how greed
is easily justified by a couple hours of church each week.
- Corporate takeover of governments and infrastructure,
will define the end of the Republic as we know it.
- WHAT THE BIBLE TELLS US
- The Good Book tells us that greed is one of the seven deadly
sins. Today we can see just how true that is with hundreds of thousands
of American and Iraqi lives actually lost to oil and not real terror, in
just the last few years. Will these deaths total into the millions?
Don't doubt it for a minute.
