Fundraising Drive For

Simply a "heads up" for a person whose commentaries and effort I enjoy and support.

Times are tight for everyone. The economy is obviously a wreck, and things are only getting worse. Every penny counts, and we all have certainly felt compelled to keep a master level Kung Fu grip on our wallets. That said, today we are here to ask you to loosen that grip just a little, and help us build a better economy with you. That’s right, we need money to make the Alternative Market Project go viral…

Alt-Market is now moving into the advertising phase, in which we will be launching various ad campaigns on major websites. I will also be traveling as often as possible to liberty based conventions across the country to spread the word on barter networking, private trade, and sound money initiatives. We will soon be working with John Chamber’s of the Save America Foundation and Dr. Kirk Elliott of the Mcalvany Financial Company to provide valuable investment information to those who frequent our websites, as well as an excellent source for precious metals. This will bring in some revenues to help support Alt-Market, but the majority of funding will come from readers like you.

Our current goal is $5000 to begin advertising and to cover convention costs. If only half of the readers who frequent this site daily donated a mere $10 each, we could surpass this goal easily. We are also announcing our goal of 50,000 participants for the Alternative Market Project, or 1000 members per state. This may seem like a lofty aspiration, but I believe it could be met and then some with the right amount of advertising and word of mouth.

I don’t have to tell you, barter networking and localized commerce is of the utmost importance RIGHT NOW. Time appears to be running out, and we must work fast to make the Alternative Market Project a success before the year is over.

We will be making regular posts at and as to the progress of this Fundraising Drive, and we will also be giving you regular updates as to the progress of Alt-Market traffic and membership numbers.

If you just don’t have the savings to make a donation, we fully understand. Your participation at our websites is of great value. Your patronage gives us hope for the future, and you can’t put a price tag on that. If you can make a donation, we are ever grateful, and will ensure that your funding will go to good use. Donations can be made at the link below:

Thank you for your time and your support.

Selected characteristics of a homegrown terrorist: personal peak into the everyday existence

This is part of the article in the previous post...A Day In The Life Of A “Homegrown Terrorist”

For all you terrorism voyeurs out there, let’s delve into the deep dark recesses of the life and psyche of the average establishment nominated homegrown extremist…

7:00 AM: I wake up this morning and every morning with thoughts on how I may better expose the Federal Reserve and the fetid, morally bankrupt corporate bankers who constructed it. Drink orange juice. Change out of my Gadsden Flag pajamas and jump into the shower. Sing the lyrics to Jimi Hendrix’s ‘All Along The Watchtower’. Rinse. Repeat.

8:00 AM: I jot down my immediate thoughts for the next terroristic macroeconomic analysis article I plan to complete later in the day with my long horrifying trigger happy terrorist fingers on my terrorist built supercomputer. I also eat a blueberry muffin, probably heated to sumptuous perfection by bakers of the terrorist persuasion. As you know, we are everywhere. Booga booga…

9:00 AM: Go out for my five mile jog. Have to stay in tip top condition if Homeland Security plans to hunt me down for all those goods and silver I’ve been trading on the evil right wing extremist ultra maxi secret black market. Flea markets, farmers markets, garage sales, private exchanges of eggs and milk, all under the nose of the IRS! You name it, I sully the “pristine” nature of the Federal Reserve system with it.

10:00 AM: Arrive at my day job where I talk to fellow employees and even employers CONSTANTLY about the stagflationary threats to the U.S. economy, the inherent tyranny of the central banking philosophy, the complete idiocy of the Keynesian methodology, the risk of Treasury depreciation and the loss of the greenback’s world reserve currency status, along with the need for sound money initiatives, localized commerce, state sovereignty legislation, and personal defense. Somehow, they have not yet realized that I am a terrorist. Mark Potok needs to get his message out there more effectively…

6:00 PM: Arrive home from a hard day’s work. Make dinner devoid of artificial sweeteners, chemical preservatives, and high fructose corn syrup. For some reason, I care about my overall health and shudder at the prospect of feeding from the corporately produced slop trough, which only seems to slowly morph any unsuspecting human being into a 300 pound boil infested bottom feeding kankle troll with the logical and intuitive capacity of a sea monkey. Watch rerun of Three’s Company (Hey, that show is funny…)

7:00 PM: Sink into couch for some much needed rest.

7:15 PM: Get up off of couch and start my second job as a terrorist writer. We are indeed relentless.

11:00 PM: After spreading my vicious propaganda about how the leaderships of both major political parties support nearly the same exact legislation and only seem to disagree in rhetoric, or when the particular issue is ultimately unimportant to the progression of globalization, as well as the inevitable downfall of the American financial system facilitated by the deliberate creation of the derivatives crisis by the Federal Reserve and global banks like JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, etc, I then have a shot of whiskey. Sometimes its depressing being a terrorist, and you have to take the edge off.

12:00 AM: I now answer many emails from other would be terrorists across the country who have been wiled by the undeniably rich and sexy allure of the lifestyle. Being labeled a terrorist is truly fun and exciting. Being constantly aware of the Godzilla-like rampage of international banks and the Fed across the ruins of our monetary system while half of the public is more concerned about what kind of Gordita they want from Taco Bell is immensely comforting. All the extra attention we receive from such highly placed individuals as Janet Napolitano makes us feel like celebrities. I imagine any group in history who has been singled out by government for their political and social views or their desire to fix the obvious inadequacies of their authority structure has felt the same way……fabulous.

1:00 AM: Time to sleep. Warm milk? Check. Air conditioning at optimum temperature? Check. Bed spread neatly folded for easy access? Check. Low playing mood music? Check. Loaded semi-automatic pistol under pillow? Check. (This is actually true in some cases, and you know what? I salute those people.) Commence operation Sheep Count. Try to supplant the concerns and the tensions of a world tomorrow that could be drastically different and even more frightening than the one we live in today. Worry that I should be sleeping less and working more to prepare others for what is coming. Hoping that my belief in the greater potential of mankind is not a waste, and that my efforts will yield something better for those generations that follow my own. Yes, I am an extremist, and a deviant. I will never stop pursuing the tidings of liberty, regardless of the cost. I am a madman. However, this makes me wonder, what does it mean to be deemed a madman in a society run by madmen? What does it mean to be judged a deviant in a nation dominated by deviants? Why is it that a so called “terrorist” in an atmosphere of dread and tyranny always seems to end up being but a man who only seeks to be free?

A Day In The Life Of A “Homegrown Terrorist”

April 8, 2011
Neithercorp Press
By Giordano Bruno

There was a time when having one’s name listed in the despised ranks of those villains that governments often categorize as “terrorists” involved quite a bit of leg work, as well as an ominous running resume of death, destruction, and general mean spiritedness. Of course, if one examines the history of every modern country which eventually disintegrated into despotism, the definition of who the “enemy” is tends to become rather broad rather quickly. That is to say, the more criminal the leadership of a country becomes, the easier it is for the average person to find himself labeled a criminal by that same leadership.

Today, one does not need to blow up buildings, take hostages in political motivation, send anthrax through the mail, or even wave a gun around in a public place to be considered a terrorist threat. In fact, a man could never leave his house and still find himself under suspicion as an enemy of the state. The Department of Homeland Security has released numerous standardized guidelines to law enforcement offices across the country which are meant to make it “easier” for police and others to identify a possible terrorist. If you were to take at face value such documents as the now famous MIAC Report, the Virginia Fusion Center Report, the DHS’ “see something, say something” campaign, the Enemy Belligerents Act, the post trial statements of the Department Of Justice in the Liberty Dollar case, or the wild spewing rhetoric of establishment mouthpiece organizations like the SPLC, then you would discover that a likely terrorist is:

Anyone who talks frequently about the Constitution, or ill of the government
Anyone who supports the idea of a Constitutional Militia
Anyone who fights against anti-gun legislation, or owns many guns (man do we LOVE guns)
Anyone who supports state sovereignty and 10th Amendment issues
Anyone who supports Ron Paul (the ultimate sin according to the SPLC)
Anyone who believes the private Federal Reserve is destroying our economy
Anyone who talks about the “New World Order”, or global government (does this include men like George Soros, Joseph Biden, Gordon Brown, Henry Kissinger, George Bush, Bill Clinton, Strobe Talbot, George McGovern, Mikhail Gorbachev, Richard Nixon, etc.?)
Anyone who discusses economic collapse as a reality in the U.S.
Anyone who speaks out against the IRS
Anyone who participates in “Hacktivism” (including those who leak documents embarrassing to government)
Anyone who participates in any form of activist group
Anyone who argues that the Left/Right political paradigm is a scam
Anyone who promotes Anarchist views
Anyone who distrusts FEMA (as if Katrina did not give us ample reasons)
Anyone who believes a truly independent investigation of 9/11 is rational and called for
Anyone who home schools their children
Anyone who flies a Gadsden Flag
Anyone who stores survival goods and food
Anyone who uses shortwave radios or HAMs
Anyone who watches movies like ‘Freedom to Fascism’, with anti-Fed messages
Anyone who operates private barter and trade networks
Anyone who stores gold and silver or uses them as an alternative to the dollar

Basically, ANYONE who dissents through independent political organization or protests through non-participation in the corrupt system might as well be Al Qaeda…  Read More

The Ten Principles of a Free Society

April 8, 2011

Ron Paul

This is the Appendix to Ron Paul’s new book, Liberty Defined.

1.  Rights belong to individuals, not groups; they derive from our nature and can neither be granted nor taken away by government.

2.  All peaceful, voluntary economic and social associations are permitted; consent is the basis of the social and economic order.

3.  Justly acquired property is privately owned by individuals and voluntary groups, and this ownership cannot be arbitrarily voided by governments.

4.  Government may not redistribute private wealth or grant special privileges to any individual or group.

5.  Individuals are responsible for their own actions; government cannot and should not protect us from ourselves.

6.  Government may not claim the monopoly over a people’s money and governments must never engage in official counterfeiting, even in the name of macroeconomic stability.

7.  Aggressive wars, even when called preventative, and even when they pertain only to trade relations, are forbidden.

8.  Jury nullification, that is, the right of jurors to judge the law as well as the facts, is a right of the people and the courtroom norm.

9.  All forms of involuntary servitude are prohibited, not only slavery but also conscription, forced association, and forced welfare distribution.

10.  Government must obey the law that it expects other people to obey and thereby must never use force to mold behavior, manipulate social outcomes, manage the economy, or tell other countries how to behave.

Unions — The Manufacturing and Political Demise of America

"Unions and special interest groups saw the taxpayers’ pocketbook as a pot of gold to be savaged. And savage it they have."

April 8, 2011

By Robert L. Hale

What does the loss of America’s manufacturing prowess have in common with the growing debt of states, counties, cities, and towns across America? Unions.

In 1971, during my first year of law school, the contracts professor informed us that private-sector union power was declining and would continue to do so. He said, “Watch what happens over the next several decades — unions will thrive by unionizing public employees.”

The decline of unions in the private sector was the result of their success in exacting concession after concession from private business, and it worked — for a while. It worked because the U.S. faced little serious competition in world markets, and companies were able to simply pass on the costs to consumers. As other nations became competitive, the weight of the excessive and unsustainable concessions resulted in industries in the U.S. either closing or moving out of the country.  Read More

The Standard of Living is taking a nose dive...part-time jobs on the rise

Is America Becoming The Land Of The Part-Time Job?: Most Of The Jobs That Are Being Created Are Part-Time Jobs And Some Companies Are Going To A “Part-Time Only Policy”

April 8, 2011
The Economic Collapse

Do you need a good job? If so, there are millions of other Americans that are just like you. Unfortunately, most of the jobs that are available in America today are either part-time jobs, temp jobs or are "independent contractor" jobs. The "full-time job with benefits" is a dying breed. There are so many desperate unemployed workers in America today that companies don't have to roll out the red carpet anymore. Instead, they can just hire a horde of inexpensive part-timers and temps that they don't have to give any benefits to. But isn't the employment situation supposed to be getting better? No, it really is not. Yes, the U.S. economy added 216,000 jobs in March. However, the truth is that approximately 290,000 part-time jobs were created and about 80,000 full-time jobs were actually lost. This is all part of a long-term trend in America. Good jobs are rapidly disappearing and they are being replaced by low paying service jobs that do not pay a living wage. In many American households today, both parents have multiple jobs. Yet a large percentage of those same households can't even pay the mortgage and are drowning in debt.  Read More

Wild And Crazy 2011: 10 History-Shattering Events That Have Shaken The Financial World To The Core

"It is when times are the darkest that the greatest heroes arise. Yes, the world as we know it is crumbling all around us, but that just means that there are going to be amazing opportunities to make a real, significant difference in the world."

April 8, 2011
The American Dream

2011 has already had more history-shattering events than almost any other year since World War 2. Revolutions have swept the Middle East and much of Africa, a new war has erupted in Libya, Japan has experienced an unprecedented tsunami and a horrific nuclear crisis, the price of oil is skyrocketing, multiple nations in Europe are experiencing a financial meltdown and budget issues have pushed the U.S. government to the verge of a shutdown. In past years, it always seemed like there was time to "catch our breath" between each major crisis, but now huge events are striking in rapid-fire succession. We live at a time when wars, rumors of wars, natural disasters, bizarre occurrences and major financial problems are becoming so common that they hardly shock us anymore. 2011 truly has been one wild and crazy year, and the world is literally being transformed right in front of our eyes.

For a moment, let's review some of the history-shattering events that we have witnessed this year so far and the impact that they have had on the financial world....  Read More

Flashback: 1957 Mike Wallace Interviews Margaret Sanger

April 8, 2011
Weasel Zippers

"I have read this woman’s views before, mostly on abortion and “undesirables,” but this interview really does show the arrogant spite the founder of Planned Parenthood has for life, struggle, and morality. Actually hearing her speak with her cold self-righteous snippiness deepens the chill. I can almost imagine her sitting on a death panel. In this portion of the interview Sanger claims bringing a child into this world in less than perfect conditions and circumstances is the greatest sin."

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, never disavowed her racist/eugenics philosophy that the ‘unfit’ should be eliminated. Her Birth Control philosophy birthed Planned Parenthood — a worldwide abortion machine. They own $1 billion dollars in assets, took over $349 million in US taxpayer dollars (in 2007), earned over $190 million in abortions alone, and made $85 million in profit.

"You can see the entire interview here where she bashes the Catholic Church, lies about PP offering marriage counseling, and helps Wallace sell cigarettes at the end of the interview. And don’t miss where she shows Wallace the photos of her perfect and life-deserving family. Also in the extended video at the link, listen to the remarks regarding her views on public funding of Planned Parenthood against the public wishes."
