Don't Touch My Junk takes aim at the TSA with its obscene pat-downs and naked body scanners now installed at airports across the USA. Written by Mike Adams (the Health Ranger), a strong advocate of freedom and civil liberties, this song is based on a true story by a traveler named John Tyner who told the TSA, "If you touch my junk I'll have you arrested."
The debt crisis roiling Europe will ultimately infect the United States, says author Robert Wiedemer. His 2006 book “America’s Bubble Economy” predicted the recession that began in 2007. And his latest work, “Aftershock,” was named one of the best investment books of 2009 by Smart Money magazine. The financial woes afflicting Greece will spread throughout Europe and eventually hit the U.S., he says. “It’s inevitable,” he says.

04/10/10 - Prognosis 2012: Towards a New World Social Order by Richard K. Moore - Historical background ? the establishment of capitalist supremacy When the Industrial Revolution began in Britain, in the late 1700s, there was lots of money to be made by investing in factories and mills, by opening up new markets, and by gaining control of sources of raw materials. The folks who had the most money to invest, however, were not so much in Britain but more in Holland. Holland was the leading Western power in the 1600s, and its bankers were the leading capitalists. In pursuit of profit, Dutch capital flowed to the British stock market, and thus the Dutch funded the rise of Britain, who subsequently eclipsed Holland both economically and geopolitically. In this way British industrialism came to be dominated by wealthy investors, and capitalism became the dominant economic system. This led to a major social transformation. Britain had been essentially an aristocratic society, dominated by landholding families. As capitalism became dominant economically, capitalists became dominant politically. Tax structures and import-export policies were gradually changed to favor investors over landowners.
