Now, it turns out that those steady returns, available only to well-connected insiders, were likely all part of fraudulent investment schemes, insider trading and trust abuse schemes. And while our abilities to work and provide needed assistance and input remained, they were jeopardized by a more and more insideous healthcare system and a collapsing ethic of paying to those who provided a benefit and means to your needs and wishes. In fact, with our homes jeopardized, we could no longer securely manage our resources stored away in tools, a stable home, education, skills, learned insights and available time to solve important problems and issues. Congress disabled that by enabling the wealthy bankers to loot the homeowners to payoff their 700B loan for the losses from the malfeasance they themselves devised. Washington pretends to want to create jobs. But seriously, what would a bunch of lawyers know about creating wealth from the make-work and losses they can most certainly produce? These lawyers never went into law to create wealth or help others. They went into law to pilfer and to scoop up wins from other peoples misfortunes and conflicts. In Washington, they create conditions where the wins and scoops can be bigger and bigger or just simply obscene. No real opportunities are being created. Those who work have to work harder to keep their income. While the elderly, struggling to live off their savings, see their livelihood and savings diminish through unrelenting government taxes, ceaseless new and increasing fees, unrelenting healthcare increases and complications, banking fees and usurious rates, inflation, and uncertainty in investments generated by environmental degradation, scandal after scandal, banking malfeasance, insider trading, schemes generated by bubble after bubble, unwarranted 'one-time' principle violations and decisions and endless policies designed to pilfer our reservoirs after a lifetime of honest perseverance and struggle. In this type of environment, no amount of savings can guarentee even a secure retirement Yet various brokerages, investment funds and insurance agencies still advertise to offer planning and a means to "safe and comfortable" retirement. While government policies pretend intent to stimulate and encourage trust and cooperation to generate and tax revenue, all their real actions and policies (of secrecy, under-the-radar-'oversights', covert ops, lies, censorship and violence) discourage trust and are far more representative of theft, bigotries popular and unpopular and intent for bigger schemes of larceny (against Americans and other inconvenient peoples abroad) and still more outlandish, nearly unbelieveable and outrageous crimes ahead and beyond public awareness.

"The events above noted gave unmistakable evidence of the unity of American sentiment against British oppression; but something more must be done to bring about united action. There must be some central authority to which all the colonies could turn for guidance. This political union came about in the formation of a Continental Congress. This Congress was the result of a spontaneous and almost simultaneous movement throughout the country. From New York came the first call. Paul Revere had been sent from Boston on a fleet horse to rouse the people of New York and Philadelphia, but ere he reached the former the Sons of Liberty had taken action for a congress. The Massachusetts legislature added its voice in June. Delegates were chosen in all the colonies except Georgia, and they met in Carpenter's Hall, Philadelphia. Among them we find such leaders as Washington, Lee, and Henry of Virginia, Dickinson of Pennsylvania, Samuel and John Adams of Massachusetts, Roger Sherman of Connecticut.

The Congress was not a constitutional body; many of its members had been chosen irregularly. Its authority was limited to the willingness of the people to respect and obey its suggestions and mandates. The very fact of its existence had a meaning of great significance, but it was too profound for the comprehension of George III. "

Why do you think there are so many laws in this country - it's because of our society - we demanded things to be done by our government because we didn't want to do them ourselves.

There are two things that could be done immediately:

Stop buying products made in other countries Stop looking to the government for answers and become "independent" as our forefathers were - that doesn't mean having a farm either. .
