1. Good News

Since the ascendency of the Obama Spendency, our national debt has grown at a breathtaking pace. In 2012 alone, it grew by $6 trillion (source, GAO), not the "mere" $1 trillion reported by the lamestream media.

In 2008, Obama said he'd cut the debt in half. Obviously, not a serious promise. But if he meant the deficit rather than the debt, he had an odd way of showing it. He tripled outgoing GW's $400 billion deficit as he took office in January of 2009. And we have been going downhill ever since.

The effect of Obama's mass draining of capital from the economy has been horrific. The number of people on food stamps doubled, the number of jobless doubled, etc. Homelessness has been become particularly in fashion as Obamageddon has continued its unrelenting assault on our lives.

Against this backdrop of widespread (and avoidable) misery, there are a few bright lights. A great example is an organization in Northwestern Indiana. The region has been hit particularly hard by a perfect storm of factors including a decline of heavy manufacturing. The Foodbank of Northwestern Indiana is a lifeline for many people. When you see this kind of organization doing what it does, you have to find that to be "good news."

You can create some good news, yourself. An easy way is to send this food bank a donation. Go to their Website, and you can do that in just a few minutes.

Another way to create good news is to volunteer to work in a food bank in your area. There isn't one? Then do what Stan Gregory of Machesney Park did. Start one. Stan floated the idea to his church (the North Park Church of Christ), and got help with establishing a pantry for the poor.

On to other good news, but of a different sort:

The brainwashing is showing signs of fatigue. Economist/Yougov conducted a poll on the 6th and 7th of February. I don't know how representative the sampling was, how the poll was conducted, or what its statistical margin of error is. And, this came from a subjective source (The Daily Briefing, affiliated with Herman Cain). Still, it is very encouraging even if the margin of error is (for example), say, 50%.

The poll asked people who voted for Obama during the 2012 "election" this question:

"Do you regret voting for Barack Obama?”

The poll showed that 71% of respondents voted yes. The yes votes by demographic are as follows:

  • 100% of Latino voters
  • 80% of "white" voters
  • 61% of men said "yes"
  • 84% of women said "yes"
  • 77% of voters age 35-44
  • 77% of voters age 45-64
  • 100% of voters over 65
  • 71% of "independent" voters
  • 100% of Republicans holding their nose in protest vote against Romney.

Though it's hard to argue with the 100% Latino remorse, the report of the results does exclude various minorities and there's a clue it's painted with a particular brush. For example, the lie that Obama is somehow "black" is something many gullible "black" people zeroed in on as a reason to vote for a man with nothing of sociological or economic consequence in common with American blacks. And they completely ignored his strong anti-black people track record as a senator. The poll doesn't show the % of "blacks" who regret having gone along with this ruse and wasted their vote this way.

Still, these numbers, even if adjusted significantly downward, show a significant weakening of the brainwashing and that is very good news.

Here's a link to the tabulation:

2. Product Highlight

Thank you (dear readers, generally) for your fantastic response to our iTravl offer in the last issue. We completely sold out! The response on the ReadingPens, featured late last year, was also fantastic; we moved a huge amount of inventory to folks who are now happy customers.

So what product are we featuring in this issue?

With winter fortunately winding down and bikini weather coming (apologies to our readers in Oz, Kiwi, and other places south of the equator), it's time to get rid of some body fat.

And we have just the product to help you do that: C2K.

C2K combines the hottest fat burners (chlorgenic acid, raspberry ketones, L-Carnitine) into one great tasting, fat-blasting supplement.

C2K combines these amazing ingredients with L-Carnitine. Use this potent combination to help supercharge your diet and exercise program.

Get ripped, not ripped off. It really works.





3. Brainpower tip

Watch this video:

Think about why these people are such ignoramuses. Then make sure this does not happen to you.

Forming opinions in an information void is how you form wrong opinions.

It's smarter to keep an open mind and form an opinion only after you have enough data from which to draw a logical conclusion after making a reasoned analysis. To avoid falling for propaganda, don't just assess the reasonability of supporting evidence. Look also for data contradicting the point. Otherwise convincing arguments often cannot survive this process.

4. Finance tip

Want to help the economy recover? Send the message below to your misrepresentatives and your senator. I'll explain why this is correct, below it. Here's the message:


Abolishing the IRS must be a top priority with Congress, if we are to ever reduce the national debt. Due to its deleterious effects on the economy, plus compliance costs, plus defense against IRS costs, plus IRS terrorism recovery costs, plus other other costs, this useless federal agency (really, a bastion of organized crime) costs the federal government far more revenue than it brings in. Simply abolishing the IRS will vastly increase federal receipts; do the math.

Not only is there a financial imperative for abolishing the IRS, there are also moral and civil rights imperatives. See, for example, the Hoyt Fiasco (info is online) and see

It boggles the mind that any member of Congress can make any excuse justifying the continued existence of the IRS. Please make this fact crystal clear to other members of Congress and help rid this nation of the pestilence known as the IRS.


Here's the explanation:

The IRS costs the US Treasury FAR more than what it collects and it does nothing to actually fund the government. It's all cost, zero benefit.

Here is something to consider, just to help you understand the reality of this. Every penny of what the IRS collects goes toward paying the interest on the federal debt. Every penny. Not any of it goes toward funding the govt. Not a penny.

It all goes directly to the nFnR. That is, the IRS is de facto the enforcement arm of a private corporation!

That's important to understand, because it means the IRS raises ZERO revenue for the govt. So already we can see that eliminating the IRS produces a net positive. But we're not done with this lesson.

Let us stick our head firmly up our ass and assume for discussion sake that all of the IRS bounty somehow goes to the US Treasury. Now, with this idiotic assumption firmly in place, what happens if you abolish the IRS and end the 1040 tax?

To answer that, you have to look at the hugely deleterious effects the IRS has on the economy. For example, the total in compliance costs is about 8 times the amount the IRS takes. Compliance costs are defined as those costs of filing the tax forms--including legions of tax advisors, attorneys, and accountants. It does not include the costs of defending against IRS attacks. This cost is 100% overhead. That is, the economy is dragged down by EIGHT TIMES the amount of revenue the IRS raises "for the govt."

It is possible to eliminate compliance costs entirely, did you know that? Yep. There are several ways to do this. But, I digress. When you simply look at the compliance costs and the fact they are EIGHT TIMES the cost of the revenue raised, you understand that they are dragging down the amount of revenue raised. Not just that this entire amt could otherwise be paid in taxes, but also that this entire amount is overhead that decreases profit and investment.

So just compliance costs alone prove this point that you should already know. Eliminate the 1040 tax and the IRS, and federal revenue goes up.

There are other costs, and some of them are quite staggering. No need to go into those, unless you want to calculate how much federal revenue would increase by eliminating the 1040 tax and the IRS. But it would be by an enormous margin.

5. Security tip

How secure is your garage door?

If you have not done this previously and nothing's been stolen, it doesn't mean someone hasn't broken in. Agents from a terrorist organization (IRS, NSA, BATFE) could have let themselves in, planted hidden surveillance devices, and let themselves out.

If your garage door wasn't secure, you need a bug detector. We have them on sale, here:


6. Health tip/Fitness tips

Thanks to Frank Bisbee, of Wireville, for covering this issue in a recent eNL of his:

There isn't a whole lot we can do about these particular toxins, because we don't have something like an environmental protection agency that looks out for our interests. Yes, there is an agency by that name, but its primary function is to shut down small competitors to large corporations, while turning a blind eye to egregious chemical dumping by the big guys who have senior administrators on their payrolls.

With all this in the environment, it's crucially important that you not exacerbate things by deliberately consuming "foods" heavily laced with endocrine disruptors. Anything with corn sweetener, for example (and that poison goes by many names, so look carefully at labels).

At age 51.

At, you'll find plenty of informative, authoritative articles on maintaining a lean, strong physique. It has nothing to do with long workouts or impossible to maintain diets. In fact:
  • The best workouts are short and intense.
  • A good diet contains far more flavors and satisfaction than the typical American diet.

7. Factoid

The name of the Do More Evil company that used to have a decent search engine (Google) is a twist on the name for a number with a million zeros (googel).

8. Thought for the Day

What sometimes passes for collective wisdom is merely collective and not wise. Be an independent thinker.
