Nestle joins the “plant based burger” movement

First, it was Burger King. Next came Chick-fil-A. Then it was Little Ceaser’s. Companies have inexplicably been signing on to use laboratory-grown, plant-based “meat” substitutes in everything from burgers to sausage. And now, joining the parade is Nestle. Wait a minute… Nestle makes burgers? I thought they did hot chocolate. (CNBC)

 

Nestle is looking to take a bite of the growing U.S. plant-based burger market.

Through its Sweet Earth brand, which it acquired in 2017, the global food giant will launch its Awesome Burger in the fall. The vegan meat substitute will be available at grocery stores, restaurants and universities.

Sweet Earth founders Brian and Kelly Swette said they began developing their own plant-based burger several years ago — before nearly every restaurant chain announced a plant-based option and Beyond Meat went public.

Okay, so Sweet Earth Foods is a brand that Nestle bought to expand their portfolio. You can take a look at this particular horror show at their site. They’re prominently advertising the “Awesome Burger” as coming soon. I’ll give them credit. The actual burger part of the sandwich does kinda sorta look like a real hamburger if you don’t stare at it too closely. But still… not quite. Take a look for yourself. (Click on image for full-size picture.)

See what I mean? As I said, it sort of looks like meat, but there are weird gaps in the patty. It looks fairly juicy, but keep in mind that this is an advertising photo and those things rarely look like what actually comes out of the package and winds up on your plate. If you’re not familiar with the process, take a gander at this report on how photographers make the food look so delicious. The list of secret tricks includes, but is not limited to, glue, sponges, tampons, shoe polish, and motor oil.

Combat Shooter's Handbook Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits Of course, now that I think about it, would you rather eat something made of tampons, shoe polish and glue or “soy DNA injected into genetically engineered yeast that’s then fermented?” (That’s literally a company description of the impossible beef and how they design it in the lab.) Might come down to a coin toss if you ask me.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)  So this particular nightmare is spreading faster than I’d ever imagined it would. Whether you’re going into a restaurant and placing an order with your nifty new AI-controlled robot waiter or picking up something at the grocery store to cook at home, you’ll need to be on your guard. I think they’re still required to tell you that you’re purchasing some sort of Frankenplant composite, but labels can be tricky. Be sure to ask first.

In the end, this is all being cooked up (literally) by the people trying to drive the beef industry out of business. You know what we have to do, people. Suck it up and start eating more steaks.

Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View

edited by

Dr Jimmy T (Gunny) LaBaume

Is now available in both PAPERBACK and Kindle

BookCoverImageMurray N. Rothbard was the father of what some call Radical Libertarianism or Anarcho-Capitalism which Hans-Hermann Hoppe described as “Rothbard’s unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.”

This book applies the principles of this “unified moral science” to environmental and natural resource management issues.

The book started out life as an assigned reading list for a university level course entitled Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View.

As I began to prepare to teach the course, I quickly saw that there was a plethora of textbooks suitable for universal level courses dealing with environmental and natural resource economics. The only problem was that they were all based in mainstream neo-classical (or Keynesian) theory. I could find no single collection of material comprising a comprehensive treatment of environmental and natural resource economics based on Austrian Economic Theory.

However, I was able to find a large number of essays, monographs, papers delivered at professional meetings and published from a multitude of sources. This book is the result. It is composed of a collection of research reports and essays by reputable scientists, economists, and legal experts as well as private property and free market activists.

The book is organized into seven parts: I. Environmentalism: The New State Religion; II. The New State Religion Debunked; III. Introduction to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics; IV. Interventionism: Law and Regulation; V. Pollution and Recycling; VI. Property Rights: Planning, Zoning and Eminent Domain; and VII. Free Market Conservation. It also includes an elaborate Bibliography, References and Recommended Reading section including an extensive Annotated Bibliography of related and works on the subject.

The intellectual level of the individual works ranges from quite scholarly to informed editorial opinion.

I have written about this before, but repetition does no harm to the truth, in fact, it should reinforce it. The Frankfurt School, originally from Frankfurt, Germany, was the birthplace of what we refer to as cultural Marxism, a brand of Marxism that took that plague upon humanity to a whole new level.

FROM BOLSHEVISM TO THE 75th TEXAS LEGISLATURE: CONNECTING THE DOTS

Al Benson Jr’s article Columbia University and the Marxists reminded me of this article that I published back in the 1990s.

by  Dr. Jimmy T. (Gunny) LaBaume

“They who say all men are equal speak an undoubted truth, if they mean that all have an equal right to liberty; to their property, and to their protection of the laws. But they are mistaken if they think men are equal in their station and employments, since they are not so by their talents” (Voltaire).

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewA Conspiracy of Ideas

I have never accepted the so-called “conspiracy theories” at face value. It is just too hard to envision a bunch of old fat men, dressed in old baggy gray suits, sitting around a big mahogany table, overtly plotting to enslave the rest of us. On the other hand, with a close look at what is happening around us, the play is being acted out just as many of these theories predict.

Combat Shooter's Handbook Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits  Yes, there has been a conspiracy, but not an overt conspiracy of men. Instead, it was a conspiracy of ideas that lost our once great Constitutional Republic– little by little–slowly but progressively–more a “death by a thousand cuts” than by traumatic amputation. As William Lind (1997) put it, “The fall of Rome was graceful by comparison.”

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)  The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)  The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)     How did all this come about? Where did all these ideas that are alien to our culture come from? Was it simply a market response to a spontaneous, radical cultural change that was brought about by a random set of events played out by a random set of independent players? Not hardly.

Critical Theory and Cultural Marxism

A concept, known at the time of its inception as “Critical Theory,” was developed by a group of German intellectuals who founded the Institute of Social Research at Frankfurt University in 1923. Modeled after the Marx-Engles Institute in Moscow, the organization became known as the Frankfort School (Raehn 1997).

When the Nazis came to power in 1933, these intellectual Marxists fled to the United States. They migrated to major universities like Columbia, Princeton and UC Berkeley where their ideas flourished. The most notable of these were Theodor Adorno, Erich Fromm and Herbett Marcuse (who, during the anti-Vietnam War demonstrations coined the phrase, “make love, not war.”)

These men came to the realization that sociology alone could not effect their “quiet revolution.” They argued that sociology must be supplemented with mass psychology and thereby married Freud and Marx.

They hypothesized that “the patriarchal family structure characteristic of bourgeois society produces an authoritarian personality type; an extra-punitive type of person who is predisposed to ethnocentrism and the projection of imperfectly repressed hostility upon out-groups” (Nelson 1994).

Of course, they found fertile ground for the propagation and dissemination of their despicable creed on the college campuses in the late 60s and early 70s. The disease spread rapidly during those years. The primary vehicle was the idealistic boomer elite (AKA the New Totalitarians) who are now in power and control every public institution in our nation (Kelly 1977).

Notably, their progeny includes Betty Friedan who authored The Feminine Mystique, the seminal screed that initiated the destructive feminist movement (Friedan 1963).

Another of their more detestable offspring is John Dewey, the first “educator” to advocate the use of public schools as instruments for social change (and who, incidentally, was an open admirer of Mussolini).

Critical Theory was the precursor of “Cultural Marxism,” which is a term used to describe the application to culture of the principles of Carl Marx in a blend with the modern psychological tools of Freud.

“Political correctness” is, in fact, Cultural Marxism. The reconstruction of the history of Western Civilization (so prevalent in our universities today) is, in fact, Cultural Marxism.

Of course Cultural Marxism has not been exclusively applied to education–nor did it happen in any sort of straight progression. Collectivists always work through a myriad of political, economic, legal, academic and cultural fronts at the same time. Not always in concert, not always in harmony, but always with the same goal; planned social change–always toward collectivism (Barry, 1999).

Indeed, this marriage of Marx and Freud has produced a “quiet revolution” in the United States that has been systematically unfolding for over 50 years. How? Through the instillation of guilt, pity, shame, fear, anger and hatred into the American psyche. The ultimate outcome is fear–fear of being labeled or associated with such words as “prejudice,discrimination, bigotry, racism, sexism, and anti-Semitism” and, as a result, being subjected to uncontrollable rage, intimidation and even terror.

How about their method, their technique? One, among many, of these techniques is group “sensitivity” training. The “change agent” (AKA the “facilitator”) at these sessions will generally work something like this.

Said “facilitator” (a better word would be “manipulator”) will start out by asking people to voice their concerns about (fill in the blank).

S/he listens intently, breaks the larger group into small discussion groups and has them make lists, all the while listening and learning something about each member of the target group.

S/he will then begin to show his/her real colors by pointing out possible objections to an “undesirable” position but, at this point anyway, s/he is still everybody’s buddy.

However, it usually will not be long before s/he becomes the devil’s advocate and pits one sub-group against the other.

S/he will question the position of the opposition leader(s), play on the fears of those with weaker convictions and finally drive a wedge between the “pro” and the “con” groups.

S/he will make certain participants angry, which is exactly what is intended so as to escalate the tensions. Goals will become muddled and, in the end, the individuals against (fill in the blank) will be shut out and the desired outcome will be achieved.

These “sensitivity training” techniques are strikingly similar to the methods used by the Chinese Communists to indoctrinate Prisoners of War in Korea. These methods were based on Pavlov’s experiments with dogs and the best available data indicate that they worked very well: only 5% resisted, 15% were consistent, dedicated, hard-core collaborators with the enemy and the other 80% were rendered “passive” and stood for nothing but their own survival.

Yes, there is a direct thread that runs from Pavlov through Marx through the Frankfort School through the US university system and into “sensitivity training.”

Sadly, higher education was one of the first institutions to succumb and has been a primary perpetrator. For example, a current blatantly stated goal of academia is “decentering: forming interdisciplinary courses, encouraging the historical, political, and literary voices of previously marginalized people.”

If you doubt it, visit any major university in America and peruse the curriculum. You will find a vast array of non-content subjects and even whole departments—everything from women’s “studies” to race based “cultural studies” to sexual orientation “studies” etc. ad nauseum of non-substantive drivel.

Phrases like diversity, pluralistic community, moral imperative, enrichment of our community, multiculturalism, tolerance and pluralism are perennially on the lips of university administrators. These are the principles and slogans of the “victim’s” revolution.

Such foolishness is not confined to “higher” education. Ask any primary or secondary school child what s/he is studying in school. You will find that teaching methods are designed to “explore the child’s feelings ” and build “self-esteem”—even in math, science and English classes. Teachers are no longer teachers. They are now “facilitators” —amateur group therapists applying “sensitivity” training techniques, which more closely resemble psychotherapy than education.

This shift to a “value neutral” mode of teaching has created a generation of moral illiterates who can “get in touch with their own feelings” but know nothing about their own culture.

Very often parents are unaware of such methods because of a deliberate policy of bootlegging the “values” stuff under other titles. For example, if parents object to the “new values clarification” program, school officials simply change the name to “life skills” and do it anyway.

The private sector has suffered a direct assault on property rights. EEO and related legislation has effectively made the federal government the owner of all organizations, even those that are nominally considered “private”, for-profit businesses.

Traditionally, only the owner of a business had the right to determine what sort of workplace h/she preferred. Now the State has usurped that right and effectively replaced the owner by dictating the workplace environment.

For example, business and industry have known for years that the most effective way of choosing employees is by a simple, 10 minute, intelligence test. Overwhelmingly, the more intelligent folks do well on the job. However, using that method for selecting employees is now against the law. Seems that intelligence (which is 80% or more heritable) has been declared “discriminatory.”

What these egalitarian collectivists fail to see or choose to ignore is that, in a single day of operation of their programs of affirmative action, minority-owned business “set-asides,” etc, they do more to promote race and gender-consciousness…than the combined efforts throughout the years of all the so-called “hate groups” (Nelson 1994).

And Now Into the Lone Star State

The 75th Texas Legislature mandated that the Texas Commission for Human Rights (TCHR) develop EEO training programs required for employees of all state agencies. The legislation provides that state funds will be withheld from agencies that do not complete the required mandatory training for employees using the TCHR materials. Thus, training programs and materials were developed in compliance with Chapter 21, Sec. 21.010 of the Texas Labor Code.

Selected state employees were informed that the legislation provides an employer “the authority to require any training that the employer feels is in the best interest of the establishment” and given one month to complete the course.

In other words, this “training” is under duress and therefore non-contractual. However, few wish to issue challenge as “the system” threatens the use force or violence as a means of dealing with dissenters. (Yes, threatening or taking ones livelihood because of his/her political beliefs is a severe form of violence.)

Since this statute outlaws any “hostile environment regarding one’s gender, sexual preference, race, religion, age, or political beliefs,” it is self-contradictory. If the statute itself violates a person’s political beliefs, then it thereby creates a “hostile environment” for that person. In other words, it undermines individual rights in the name of “individual rights.”

There seems to be a lot of that sort of thing going on in our world nowadays.

Options for Homeland Defense, Inc. (Protecting Liberty through Private Firearms Ownership)  

“Owning a handgun doesn’t make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician.” – Jeff Cooper

Call for a pizza, a cop, and an ambulance and see which one arrives first.

In Warren v. District of Columbia the court ruled, and the Supreme Court upheld, that “(T)he desire for condemnation cannot satisfy the need for a special relationship out of which a duty to specify persons arises.” Because the complaint did not allege a relationship “beyond that found in general police responses to crimes,” the court affirmed the dismissal of the complaint for failure to state a claim.

The bottom line is that your local police are not legally obligated to protect you, the average citizen. In addition to the Warren case, there are hundreds of court rulings which state that cops are not legally responsible for protecting individual citizens. For example, see Zelig v. County of Los Angeles.

The government can’t protect you as you saw on September 11, 2001 as well as during the Washington, DC area “sniper” rampage and the plethora of active shooter events that we have had since.

In fact, the government could very well be our greatest fear, due to its propensity to murder people because of their ideas (See Ruby Ridge, ID and Waco, TX).

A simple internet or youtube.com search of “the police state” or “police brutality” will reveal literally thousands of violent crimes (from assault to cold blooded murder) committed by the State’s costumed emissaries of officially sanctioned violence (aka The Police State) against harmless and innocent people.

So, who does that leave to protect you, your life, property and family? The one and only answer is: YOU It is your duty and personal responsibility to protect yourself and your loved ones.

This responsibility is a natural right given to us by God as human beings and guaranteed to us as individuals by the Constitution of the United States of America.

War is the greatest plague that can afflict humanity, it destroys religion, it destroys states, it destroys families. Any scourge is preferable to it. ~ Martin Luther

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualA Handbook for Ranch Managers  Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewHow could any decent human being not oppose war? War is the scourge of mankind, it is the destroyer of entire civilizations, and if taken to the ultimate test, will be the destroyer of all living things on earth. The logic of this statement is not accepted by those who foment and prosecute war, and it is not understood by the masses of common people that support the aggressor state due to false patriotism and statolatry. The worship of the state in this country has reached levels that are beyond the bounds of sanity, and this could lead to a perilous end.

I have always wondered how anyone could support the maiming, torture, displacement, and total destruction of war, where millions of innocent men, women, and children are slaughtered, and their homelands laid to waste. Why do I abhor war when so many others do not? Why does it sicken me, but drive the masses to a religious fervor of national pride? How can the lives of so many be disregarded, and mass killing be ignored or seen as glorious? This is a human flaw that is not only unconscionable, but impossible for me to understand.

This United States has been the most deadly warmongering nation in the history of mankind, and even in its short existence of 243 years, America has been at war over 93% of the time.  That is 226 years of war out of 243. This statistic is staggering, especially considering that virtually all U.S. wars, domestic and foreign, have been wars of aggression, and never for actual defense. This alone is reason for condemnation of the state, and reason for the American populace to finally awaken to the truth that this country is the world’s greatest terrorist threat to mankind.

The U.S. has 800 military bases in over 70 countries outside U.S. borders. An empire of this magnitude dwarfs all other countries. America’s so-called greatest enemies, Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea, have bases in just 12 countries combined. Other than former Soviet provinces, Russia has bases in just 3 other countries, China in 5, Iran in 4, and North Korea has none. Most all of these country’s foreign bases are located in neighboring regions. The U.S has encircled Iran with 45 bases, and along with NATO is also positioned around Russia’s border. And of course, the U.S. has a major military presence on North Korea’s border as well, and has since it invaded North Korea 69 years ago. Obviously, the only country today that is a deadly world threat is the United States, and other than a few allies, almost no country is safe from possible or probable U.S. aggression.

The reality of the costs of war are not limited to life and limb, but also adversely affect every aspect of economics, commerce, basic moral and psychological foundations, and liberty. War allows for the powerful to gain more control, and for the government to expand its reach. War supporters and media perpetuate lies, propaganda, and nationalism that are used as excuses by the general population to falsely demonize all other cultures that are in the crosshairs of the U.S. hegemonic state.

The costs of war are deep-seated and long-lasting, and the scars of conflict remain permanently embedded in the minds and souls of the innocent victims. Even as the pain subsides, the anger continues to fester long after the aggression has quieted. The result is a continued risk of blowback that can escalate into even more war. This vicious cycle leads to never-ending war, and that is what is sought by the warmongers and war profiteers, and those ruling elites seeking to eliminate individual sovereignty in order to gain global societal control.

Presidents of War: The… Michael Beschloss Best Price: $7.92 Buy New $14.75 (as of 05:40 EST – Details)

War is madness, but it is madness that is purposely planned and designed. It is not random, it is not legitimate; it is simply an elaborate plot meant to achieve a desired end for those holding the strings. Those are the very rich ruling elites, the banking magnates and powerful corporate heads that control the money and the politicians. They have self-motivated objectives that are never in the interest of the people at large. Due to their powerful influence of the Federal Reserve Banks, they hold a monopoly on all money production, and therefore have control of the entire monetary policy of the U.S. They also control the political class, those pawns elected under the guise of democracy who falsely claim to represent the common man. In reality, they are no more than puppets in this game of power.

What this means is that the very few control the many. Since only a limited number of elites are in control, large numbers of people have a great advantage. Using this advantage to oust the current power structure has not been evident in the past, but it must be in the future if peace and sanity are to win the day. Political remedies are worthless at this juncture in my opinion, but all out anarchy is not the only answer to throwing off the chains of this powerful elite. But banding together in solidarity to stop the rampant tyranny in place today is necessary. A mass resistance will favor the people, and cause a change of course. Demanding the abolishment of the Federal Reserve will cut off the head of the snake, and shut down the war machine. This will force the political class to take notice, and will strike fear in the hearts of all who resist a peaceful path.

So why oppose war? War is maiming and killing. War brings starvation and poverty. War destroys economies. War breeds hate and division. War destroys families, and orphans children. War is terror and fear. War is immoral. War is evil.

“White Privilege” Is A Racist Enterprise

The only thing that bothers me about white people is that we are the only race in recorded human history to have ever actively participated in its own genocide. How about the two great World Wars I and II? How many cures for cancer or trips to the moon fell face down in that French mud? And who was always the first over the top of the trench? The leadership.

We are the only race to have ever voluntarily limited its reproduction rate (via the pill, abortion, etc) for the “greater good”– having suckered to the radical environmentalists. While “people of color” continue to reproduce like barn rats.

And now we continue to destroy ourselves by meekly kowtowing to the “politically correct” demands that we openly recognize (fess up to) our “White Privilege.”

Having been born in a sharecropper’s shack on a wore out, dry land cotton farm in Erath County, Texas, I have first hand experience with John Steinbeck style “Grapes of Wrath.” So, if there are any of you sumbitches out there that want a share of “white privilege,” you are welcome to mine. Come and get it.

Options for Homeland Defense, Inc. (Protecting Liberty through Private Firearms Ownership)  

“Owning a handgun doesn’t make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician.” – Jeff Cooper

Call for a pizza, a cop, and an ambulance and see which one arrives first.

In Warren v. District of Columbia the court ruled, and the Supreme Court upheld, that “(T)he desire for condemnation cannot satisfy the need for a special relationship out of which a duty to specify persons arises.” Because the complaint did not allege a relationship “beyond that found in general police responses to crimes,” the court affirmed the dismissal of the complaint for failure to state a claim.

The bottom line is that your local police are not legally obligated to protect you, the average citizen. In addition to the Warren case, there are hundreds of court rulings which state that cops are not legally responsible for protecting individual citizens. For example, see Zelig v. County of Los Angeles.

The government can’t protect you as you saw on September 11, 2001 as well as during the Washington, DC area “sniper” rampage and the plethora of active shooter events that we have had since.

In fact, the government could very well be our greatest fear, due to its propensity to murder people because of their ideas (See Ruby Ridge, ID and Waco, TX).

A simple internet or youtube.com search of “the police state” or “police brutality” will reveal literally thousands of violent crimes (from assault to cold blooded murder) committed by the State’s costumed emissaries of officially sanctioned violence (aka The Police State) against harmless and innocent people.

So, who does that leave to protect you, your life, property and family? The one and only answer is: YOU It is your duty and personal responsibility to protect yourself and your loved ones.

This responsibility is a natural right given to us by God as human beings and guaranteed to us as individuals by the Constitution of the United States of America.

Options for Homeland Defense, Inc. offers professional weapons and tactics training that will make the difference. Instructed by experienced combat veterans—guys that have “been there and done that.” It offers private instruction at its privately owned range and mobile training teams are available. All interactions are confidential and discrete.

Thank You Is Not Enough

The “Masters of War” learned from Vietnam; next time do not impose a military draft, buy up and consolidate the media to control the messaging and reporting, and then get the entertainers and talking heads to celebrate anyone who wears a uniform as a “hero” for keeping us safe and protecting our “freedoms”…. So any questioning or protest of our wars abroad risks being viewed by one’s fellows as not supporting our troops sent into harm’s way on what history has shown most often to be a lie.

My Marine Corps career spanned some 35 years (with a lot of reserve and broken time) and included 2 wars–Vietnam and Desert Storm.

I’m a slow learner. It took me some 45 years to come to the realization that NOTHING I had ever done for the Marine Corps ever had ANYTHING to do with “freedom in America” or “protecting the constitution” or any other of that flag waving horse shit.

EVERYTHING I ever did for the Marine Corps had EVERYTHING to do with the aggrandizement of the state and the enrichment of the politicos and their cronies in the military-industrial-congrssional-educational-and law enforcement Cartel.

In short, I was a dupe.

Furthermore, it pains me to realize that the uS government used to pay me to kill people who were just exactly like the people who run the uS government.

And please do not “thank” me for my service. I did not do anything that anybody should be thankful for. In fact I did a lot of things that we all should be ashamed of.

Yours for freedom in our lifetimes. — jtl, 419

PS. There is absolutely nothing in any of those fly farm hell holes worth even one of my good Marines.


By Philip C. Restino, Jr. via Activist Post

“Freedom isn’t Free” means more than sending American troops off to war, it requires the participatory citizenship of Americans here at home.

As it was with Vietnam, the War on Terror was a war of choice advocated for long before a political justification was introduced. Vietnam had its Gulf of Tonkin incident and the attacks of 9/11/01 brought us the 9/11 Wars. Investigative journalist Pepe Escobar’s “This war brought to you by” from 3/20/03 described how the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) had been lobbying since 1997 for wars in the Middle East and Asia. Retired General Wesley Clark was told by colleagues in the Pentagon just 9 days after the attacks of 9/11/01 that the upcoming War on Terror planned for the overthrow and regime change of 7 countries in 5 years (Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran), as per the PNAC paper of September 2000. So far 5 of the 7 countries have been overthrown or destabilized, and Iran and Lebanon remain in the crosshairs of the current administration.

The government’s official story concerning the Gulf of Tonkin incident proved to be a deliberate misleading of the American people. The Tonkin Gulf Resolution, passed just 3 days after the supposed attack on U.S. destroyers off the coast of North Vietnam, allowed the White House to wage war in Vietnam for the next 8 years until the American people had had enough of it. The Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) passed overwhelmingly by Congress 3 days after the attacks of 9/11/01, with no investigation and very little debate, also gave the White House a blank check to wage war on “terrorism” … a behavior, not a nation state … anywhere and on anyone on the planet it saw fit. The AUMF of 9/14/01 continues to this day to be the sole justification used for the ongoing 9/11 Wars.

The “Masters of War” learned from Vietnam; next time do not impose a military draft, buy up and consolidate the media to control the messaging and reporting, and then get the entertainers and talking heads to celebrate anyone who wears a uniform as a “hero” for keeping us safe and protecting our “freedoms”.  Let’s also remember Reich Marshall Hermann Goering’s statement at Nuremberg, “The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.” So any questioning or protest of our wars abroad risks being viewed by one’s fellows as not supporting our troops sent into harm’s way on what history has shown most often to be a lie.

Until we the American people perform our own due diligence regarding the government’s “justification” for putting our troops into harm’s way, to include holding accountable to the fullest extent of the law those who have misled us into war, “thank you for your service” is not enough.

A Handbook for Ranch ManagersA Handbook for Ranch Managers.  In keeping with the “holistic” idea that the land, the livestock, the people and the money should be viewed as a single integrated whole: Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. Not only would this book make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it. It is a comprehensive reference manual for managing the working ranch. The information in the appendices and extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book.
