Let's compare the year 2000 to the year 2012.

What I thought I'd do here. . . was to focus on how much life is different today than it was in the year 2000. I figure those who were there at the time would be able to comprehend and realize the incredible differences between then and now. Anyone who is under the age of 17 or 18 wouldn't be able to see those differences and so are much more prone to accept things as they are because they cannot yet compare between then and now. Do you understand where I'm comin' form on this?
The unemployment rate in 2000 was 4.0 percent, goverment figures.
Minimum wage was set at 5.15 per hour.
The unemployment rate in 2011 was 9.6 percent.
Minimum wage in 2011 was 7.25 per hour.
That means that unemployment doubled in that time. Now, consider also that goverment figures are fixed. You should, as a rule, double their figures and that will bring you much closer to actual numbers.
Gas cost was 1.19 in 2000. . . it is 4.00 a gallon now.
But I want to get past the facts and figures. . .. I want to see how much freedom we have lost. . . how different our lives are since 9/11. You see, 9/11 was when the conspiracy went into overdrive. That's when those "secret societies" bent on "world domination" that Kennedy warned us about. . . got their "pearl harbor" moment and used it to bring in their "war on terror" wich is actually a war on the American people!
In the year 2000, my cat and I strolled into Atlanta airport, got on a plane and took off for Bermuda. No hassle, no questions, no problems. In November of 2001. . . I got on a plane and flew back to the US. Again, there was no hassle, questions, groping or x-rays. I was the customer and everyone went out of his or her way to make me happy.
At the time, gas was around 1.47 a gallon. You could afford to drive. You could find a job. In other words, the system was still functioning for most Americans. Bush had finagled his way into office and hadn't done much damage yet, but that was all about to change.
I wasn't fooled at the time. I was awake enough to see the power grab for what it was. Many did. Afterwards, when questions started being asked, the goverment's story fell apart. 9/11 WAS an inside job! And then began the "war on terror" and the DHS and the TSA and the war on the Constitution!
This is NOT America. . . It is being transformed! Simply compare life in 2000 to the way things are today. It is a different country now isn't it. That's what I'm trying to get you to see. And don't get me wrong, life in 2000 was more difficult than it was in say 1991 or 92.
Hell, back in 1992, I was in wholesale/retail of Native American art and opened a store in a shopping mall in Springfield, Illinois. I was also into pow wows and would go to O'fallon, Hannibal, Cahokia Mounds. . . every weekend was pow wow and dancing and socializing. You could go places and do things. You had a few extra bucks to do things. It was a whole different story back in the 90's.
Still, back in 2000, most people figured it was still America. We had inflation and jobs were going overseas but it all went into overdrive with the advent of 9/11. You see, 9/11 came along like a boot in the backside and life changed drastically. And just between you and me. . . it's about to change drastically AGAIN! These people are ruthless. They don't give a dam about you, the constitution, or the law. They are criminals and traitors, one and all!
Back in 2000, you could get in your car and go for a day trip. I wonder how many of you can barely afford to drive your car anywhere anymore. And how much does it hurt to feed that car? Where is that gas money comin' form? If you're putting more and more $ into it, you've gotta be takin' it away form somewhere else right? What are you sacrificing in order to feed your car? What are you givin' up to fill the tank?
Have you noticed all the dead strip malls? The dead shopping centers? The dead buisnesses everywhere? Dead stores, dead gas stations, dead restaurants, dead motels. . . guess what? Most of 'em are dead mom and pops! That's right! Dead small buisnesses everywhere you look.
Have you noticed that all of the streets and roads and highways are goin' to hell? Cracks, bumps, pot holes, patches. . . Yeah, but they got money to put cameras on every street corner! They got money to federalize the police and turn 'em into storm troopers!
When have you ever seen so many foriegners runnin' around all over the place? How is it that the illegal Mexicans are working? Are you aware of how many foriegn nationals are brought into this country every year on work visas by major corporations because "they can't find qualified Americans to employ?" That's right! Just ask Bill Gates! Oh yes! Flood the country with foriegn nationals. . . That's a surefire way to destroy a culture! Then, you can erase the borders and create a NORTH AMERICAN UNION! That's right! That's what it's all about! Globalization!
If I were you, I'd be extremely pissed off! I am amazed that you all put up with this stuff. Then again. . . It's the mind control. . . the false reality portrayed in the mainstream media. Hey! How about them Cardinals? Who do you think will win on American Idol? Can you be ready when the time is right? Call if you have an erection that lasts over four hours!
Have you been in a grocery store lately and checked out the prices? Everything getting more expensive? How is it effecting your eating habits? Is payin' for the gasoline causing you to purchase less at the grocery store?
How about your rent? Or your house payments? Have they gone up as well? How about your utilities? Have your utilities gone up lately? What are you cutting back on? Is it startin' to hurt bad enough yet?
What's it goin' to take to wake you people up to the fact that YOUR goverment is doing this to you and your family purposefully! These people know exactly what they are doing and what the agenda is! The goverment IS the bad guys! The goverment IS YOUR ENEMY. I am sickened by the actions of our SO-CALLED leaders in Washington! form Bush to Clinton, to Bush again and now to Obama. If I were black. . .I would be so pissed off . . . knowing that he has betrayed your trust! The tragic reality is that no matter who is elected President. . . The destruction of America will go on unimpeded. . . The destruction of the Constitution will continue unabated. The American people will be reduced to third world standard. And we will all live in one big concentration camp!
Welcome to the new Amerika!
