Do people going about their daily business have any clue that the American empire is in total collapse and that we the people are utterly screwed?

The enslavement of the American people has been orchestrated by a pernicious Master Class that has taken the United States by the throat. This Master Class is now choking the nation to death as it accelerates its master plan to plunder the people’s dwindling remaining assets. The Master Class comprises politicians, the Wall Street money elite, the Federal Reserve, high-end government (including military) officials, government lobbyists and their paymasters, military suppliers and media oligarchs. The interests and mindset of the Master Class are so totally divorced from those of the average American citizen that it is utterly tone deaf and blind to the justifiable rage sweeping the nation. Its guiding ethics of greed, plunder, power, control and violence are so alien to mainstream American culture and thought that the Master Class might as well be an enemy invader from Mars. But the Master Class here, it is real and it is laying waste to America. To the members of the Master Class, the people are not fellow-citizens; they are instruments of labor, servitude and profit. At first, the Master Class viewed the citizens as serfs; now that they have raped and destroyed the national economy, while in the process amassing unprecedented wealth and power for themselves, they see the people as nothing more than slaves.

Johnson said the change was not ­specifically linked to the increased threat from international terrorism following the failed Detroit plane bombing on Christmas Day or to any other incident.

The governor is considering letting the contract expire and putting the question to a referendum, but some legislators are clinging to the fanciful notion that cameras are meant to increase safety, not boost revenue.

Photo-enforcement cameras may not last through the summer on Arizona’s highways, given recent activity at the state Capitol to shut down the program.

Pressure is growing among state politicians to scrap the network of freeway boxes that snap photos of speeding motorists, and a few lawmakers have introduced bills that would fundamentally alter the system or do away with it altogether.

People around the world are waking up and asking, “what the hell was that swine flu panic all about?”

Jan. 21 (Bloomberg) — The World Health Organization will clarify data on swine flu after media reports of a false pandemic hindered public health measures, India’s Health Secretary K. Sujatha Rao said.

Governments from the U.S. to Germany are curbing purchases of vaccine to fight the new H1N1 virus after cases declined and the first flu pandemic in 41 years appeared milder than initially feared. The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe plans to debate the theme “Faked pandemics: a threat to health” at a plenary session in Strasbourg, France, next week.
