About Me

My name is Jonathan, and I am a 24 year old sociology student from Chicago, IL. This blog will be discussing politics to every extreme, and covering many other topics including race, religion, and all social issues that are happening right now. Well known by my friends and foes, I am very liberal and an atheist. This blog serves as a resistance to the enslavement of our generation. Does anyone have the heart to stand with me?

We Are The Resistance.

Hello and welcome back!  Sorry for such a long absence, I was just overloaded with work over the summer and school recently, that I haven't had time to post.  But holy shit, there has been a lot of new things happening since I've been gone.  World-wide protests, a new war, preludes to other wars, more doomsday nonsense, and a disgusting display from our bought Congress.  It has definitely been an interesting few months, so I'm going to go ahead and cover the Occupy Movement that has sparked resistance throughout the western world.

Over the entire summer, I was very excited about hearing ideas of an occupywallstreet event in New York City.  And I must say I'm am extremely impressed with how it has evolved since its beginning in September.  Today, over 1500 cities have started similar protests and occupations, with one major demand - GET MONEY OUT OF POLITICS.  The beauty of it is that we see people from all over the political spectrum coming together in solidarity, uniting to conquer tyranny.  Whether you want to attack Wall Street, or the Federal Reserve, the idea is that our country has been stolen from us, the 99%.  I personally think that we must go after both, with the root of the problem being the Federal Reserve.

For those of you who don't know much about history, or the Fed in general, I'll discuss its history briefly.  The Federal Reserve was started in 1913, created by a group of the country's most powerful and wealthy men.  They predicted and essentially created the first set of depressions we experienced in the 20's and 30's, while the members of this private group became much wealthier.  Fast forward to today, the Federal Reserve was responsible for bailing out the banks, with their first numbers coming out to be over $700 billion in bailouts.  We now know that the number is in the trillions of dollars, of OUR taxpayer money, gone to bail out banks - while these banks created the problems we're facing today.  The Federal Reserve is known to be working side by side with the banksters on Wall Street, and really runs a large portion of the government.  They have powers that trump that of any other branch, and much of the time they answer to no one.  Alan Greenspan went on tape to admit that the Fed (a supposed public entity) is truly private.  This explains why people get arrested for filming on their property.  The Federal Reserve also prints money, plenty of it, using that money to pay off our debts.  Any person with common sense can see the problem with that.  You print more money, the value of your currency goes down.  Look at the US dollar right now, as it is about to die.  The Fed has destroyed the dollar, which is resulting in a less powerful economic status of our republic.  All of this being a plot, created in 1913 by the richest families in the world, to simply enslave us.  Do your own research on the families and people involved - Rothschild, Rockafellers, etc.  There is plenty of information, even if you just search "Jekyll Island," which is the place where this monster was created...

As for Wall Street, their history is quite simple.  Banksters gave loans to people who couldn't pay back their debt, stole quite a bit of money on the side, made faulty investments, lobbied to government to pass their agendas, and let our country fall into the recession we've been experiencing, as they received bail outs and on top of it all, CEO's of these banks had RECORD BONUSES in their salaries. 

I don't want to get too caught up in a history lesson, because this information is available all over the internet - just don't count on establishment media sites to search for it.

I guess the point of this post is to express my joy for this new movement.  It seems people finally grew some balls, and decided to stand up to the system that has enslaved us for almost a century.  Despite numerous cases of mass arrests and police brutality, thanks in part to our VERY corrupt NYPD (and the $5 million dollar donation to them from J.P. Morgan), protesters are still standing, gaining more numbers everyday.  The NYPD may have the guns and the "legal power," but we have the numbers.  I would like to ask any police officer or member of the military, who's side do you want to be on when its over and we have won?  The side of the majority, the ones fighting for your rights and your retirement?  Or the ones who simply use you as the brutes, to do their dirty work, putting you in the line of fire?  And if you are involved with receiving bribes and "donations" to destroy our Constitution, to eliminate freedom of speech, and to trample on our rights as free people, you will be brought to justice.  History is on our side.  Tyrants fall, hard. 

In closing, I want to extend a word of advice to all who are actively participating in these occupations and protests.  DO NOT let anyone take this away from you, or co-opt it in any way.  The establishment is going to do everything in its power to destroy this movement, even if that means it infiltrating and directing its goals to satisfy the owners.  This protest should not have ANYTHING to do with party or political affiliation, because that is going to lead to massive separation and division.  The idea is to go after ANYONE involved with corporate control over government, whether they are republican or democrat.  Obama has continuously stated that he is in support of the movement, but not many people know that he is backed by the very people you are fighting against.  Don't let Congress, the president, or any other corporate puppet influence you.  This is your fight.  If you want to support political figures, support people like Ron Paul, Bernie Sanders, Dennis Kucinich, etc. who haven't let corporate America, or any other group, buy them.  All three branches of government are there to serve and represent the PEOPLE, not corporations, not lobbying groups.  When 50% of Congress are millionaires and only 1% of the people are millionaires, there is a very serious problem. 

Do not let tyranny spread any further.  The coming months, even years will be tough, because the establishment is very scared and they know that they are about to lose the power.  The only way to win this fight is through unity.  If we stand united, we will triumph.  We are the resistance.

Taking A Break

For the past month or so, I've been really slacking in keeping up with this blog.  Thank you to all who've supported me and my writing and ideas, but right now I'll be taking some time off.  I work quite a bit, and in my free time I'm usually so exhausted, its hard to write a well versed post.  Here and there I will be posting new things, but for now I ask that if you enjoy my blog, share it with others.  Spread the word, because I'll be 100% back in action come August, when I have more time to focus.  Thank you again to everyone who have read my blog, whether or not you agree with me.  And that being said, I leave you with this:

The only way to effectively engage and participate in politics is to think rationally and responsibly.  Question everything you're told by the establishment media, and fight for justice against those who are trying to destroy our world.  We must unite, and resist.  This machine is enslaving our generation, more and more every day.  Most young people don't care... well, you should care.  Your future is at risk.  Join the resistance I am pushing for, so our futures can be great, and our world can survive. 

- The Resistance.

This Is Why Religion Is Dangerous

While people do, ultimately, make their own decisions, Harold Camping and his campaign have some responsibility in this.  Luckily the children lived through this mess, but the mother and Harold Camping should be locked up for some time.  Brainwashing is extremely powerful, as I have spoken about numerous times, it allows the average person to believe the unbelievable.  I look forward to hear Camping's response to the situation, but at the end of the day, he has won.  I just hope that in the future, society stops him before he goes too far, again.

Another Day, Another False Prophet

It seems that self-proclaimed prophet, Harold Camping, was wrong again in predicting the end of the world.  After a multi-million dollar advertising campaign, his followers for the most part are left speechless, and in many cases, financially destroyed.  I wrote a post about this "apocalypse" two weeks ago, explaining that it is NOT a good idea to follow religion so blindly.  And that is exactly what happened with the Harold Camping Scam of 2011.

I call this a scam, but I'm not going be sympathetic with anything this man did.  He created a state of fear and worry, in which many of his followers threw away their lives this past week, because they truly thought the world was ending.  Families moved out of their homes, men and women quit their jobs and gave away their assets... this entire campaign was funded by donations from Camping's followers!  Peoples lives have been ruined, and of course, Camping is no where to be found.  Why do we allow people like him to do this?  In the name of "god," he took peoples hard earned money, created social unrest, and will never have to own up to what he did.  He will not be required to pay these people back the money they gave him, and because so many of these people have such strong faith, they'll continue to follow him - even when he makes his next WILD prediction years down the road. 

Blind faith.  Like the many other false prophets throughout history, blind faith has led thousands to their doom, physically or emotionally.  Does anybody remember Jonestown?  In 1978, over 900 people ended their lives, by ingesting cyanide, in the name of religion and led by a false prophet.  What about the Manson Family?  In the late 1960's, Charlie Manson led a group of criminals on a killing spree in Hollywood.  They followed him, because he brainwashed them into believing he was a savior.  On top of these, there have been hundreds of "end of days" predictions in the past century, many resulting similarly as yesterday - leaving thousands of followers completely broken, mentally and financially. 

So I would like to explain, once again, that it is OKAY to question your faith.  Religion can be very dangerous, with so many possible consequences in believing blindly.  We saw yesterday, families around the world were left with nothing, when the world did not end.  We've seen throughout history, lives destroyed and in many cases physical death as a result.  So, ask questions about your faith.  There is nothing evil about questioning something as powerful as religion.  The only way to get truth in this life is to ask questions, and to challenge the establishment.

News Flash

The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion. The United States of America should have a foundation free from the influence of clergy.

Trump 2012... oh wait!

Hold on a minute, did I just read correctly that Donald Trump isn't running for president?  It really is a shame.  I really thought he could win...

Okay, you got me.  THANK GOODNESS!  I have to admit, it will be nice not to hear his radical, insane, and irrational thoughts every week on the news, but I am saddened, because this could have been a comedians wet dream.  But if you really thought Donald Trump cared about this country or its people, well I guess that makes you part of the problem.

There is a problem in America, with people using the idea of running for president as merely a name recognition builder, in which they become quite famous and popular for the short time they toy with the country on whether or not to run - making them extreme financial profits.  An even larger problem is the fact that so many Americans support these frauds.  If you think about it, millions of people saw Donald Trump as the answer to America's problems.  Millions of Americans thought Donald Trump, a man who has driven every business he's been a part of into the dirt, could fix this country and make it great once again.  Millions of Americans need their heads examined...

I knew this was a publicity stunt, I think there were a lot of people who knew... so why is this okay?  Why do we allow people like Donald Trump, who is simply using the system to make a few more millions of dollars, to run for president.  It is disgusting.  Republicans have absolutely no problem with what Donald Trump did, which really shows their true colors.  Taking peoples money and support, their hopes and dreams, and running to the bank with no care in the world.  He used the system, and you want to know why its okay?  Because any American can run for president.  As long as you are an American citizen, a certain age, and you live here... you can become president.  Maybe its the "socialist" in me, but I am very against allowing ANYONE to be the leader of 300 million people.  We see this with people like Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, Donald Trump... complete idiots.  Is it really a good idea to let just anyone run for president?  Look what happened when we elected a "common guy" in George W. Bush - he ran our country into the ground with 2 wars and tax cuts for the top 1%.  There used to be standards, and respect for the office of president.  American government used to mean something, having values and purpose.  Today, its one big shit storm after another.  Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, Georgia - just a few states where local and state government is destroying the majority... after citizens elected candidates from the party of "common people."  Has it ever occured to anyone, that the party of common people (Republican Party), has never really done anything for the true common people?

Lower class.  Middle class.  These groups make up the extreme majority in our country, in which the republicans are slowly destroying.  Say goodbye to the middle class pretty soon, because the class gap is growing so quickly, soon it will be non-existent.  I am afraid for the future, if Americans are continuously scammed into voting republican - especially in this day and age.  Let's get this clear, republicans don't give a shit about you, unless you're rich, Christian, male, white, and straight.  The common people in this country are so easily manipulated and controlled, that they will believe anything.  That's what happened in Wisconsin... now those same people lost their workers rights.  The same goes for Michigan and Ohio.  Maybe after these last few months of chaos, Americans can finally get it through their heads that voting republican, is only going to make corporations and rich people become even richer.  And maybe Americans will finally realize, that like Donald Trumps presidential ambitions, the republican party is a complete joke.

OBAMA 2012.

The GOP is Pathetic

I'm going to keep this short, since its my birthday!  The GOP has really shown how pathetic they are, by voicing problems with the rapper, Common, being invited to a poetry reading at the White House.  Hip hop and rap is an art form, expressing the life within lower socioeconomic neighborhoods and cities.  Can it be violent?  Yes.  Can it express distaste for police?  Yes.  But that is a part of the culture.  Young black males, growing up in poor areas, probably deal with extremely racist police, who practice the "watchman" style of policing - being less concerned with due process and rights, on a daily basis.  There is still an extreme cultural gap, where middle to upper class white Americans cannot seem to understand the problems black Americans face all the time. 

This outrage coming from the right-wing nut jobs just goes to show their lack of understanding for the lower class and the black community in general.  They have no connection with art, popular culture, or really anything that doesn't have to do with businessmen, oil, and war.  Republicans will never understand the civil rights ideas and social protest we've seen by men such as Tupac Shakur and groups such as N.W.A. and Public Enemy.  They only see it as evil.  Which is how they see the lower class black community.  Evil.
