History Reveals Secrets

Review reliable relics of history.  In the world of conspiracy theories and pandemic paranoia on the New World Order or World Trade Organization or whatever conspired acronym that arises to fearful, watchful and retractful information on the evils of the world is not to be reared in the context of helplessness.  Skeptics and cynics are bordering on lunacy as they attempt to reveal what they believe as truth.  If powers that be have over the years accumulated enough power to twist every facet of life, than it is no one else's fault than our own for sleeping on the job.  In democracy, the principles of a government is powered by the people.

"Democracy cannot consist solely of elections that are nearly always fictitious and managed by rich landowners and professional politicians."

— Che Guevara

While perusing the internet on conspiracy theories, some of the most bizarre stories born from vivid imaginations, perhaps from dreams of secret wishes to find justice in today's world, as our economy has been privatized to the faction of some deviant sociopaths running politics, has yet to be seen.  The secrecy is the dilemma within a nation touted in freedoms, starting with the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights.  The First Amendment protects our freedom of religion, speech and the press, as well as the right to assemble and petition the government.  In our search for truth, the world has been compounded to extremes that have alienated our God given rights to justice.  If you tend to get carried away with speculation, often those very Godly rights are undermined and compromised as many theories are proposed and the flood of information takes on a life of its own.

However, in the United States, we can only hold our own beliefs of equality, justice and truth according to the actions of our historical perspective of government.  As religion has spread, the need to accept everyone's precept of ideals and logic in faith has erased our foundations in spirituality.  Religion is a personal experience with God and it reinforces the idea that we are spiritual beings having a human experience rather than human beings having a spiritual experience, however both can coexist.  In exchange for the dissemination of principles, we have become nonbelievers of our own concepts and that is when conspiracies thrive and truth gets buried in cognitive dissonance.  The ad hoc agenda that only one reason can be right is incorrect, both principles can apply if we allow it.  Not everyone is on the same evolutionary journey due to where we all come from, which in our own creation.  Anyone who burdens us with a we or them attitude has selected to be exclusionary and it contradicts my personal beliefs in perseverance and survival.  If a man does good, believes in themselves to conquer fears and pursue justice, I'd consider them one and the same.

We must own every word we speak, every thought that flows and build on every inclination of what's real for our own unique individual experiences in the world.  We unite by coming together to understand our situation, discuss our differences and embrace our solidarity.  Somewhere in time and in history, we have been moved back and forth in a discontinum of sorts by evil forces or our blind dedications.  Have no fear though as some of us live in the wrinkle in time and can fluctuate in between different realms of illusion.  Reality is a constant in our universe as we pull the kinks out of ill information and flatten theories to planetary alliances.

Facebook Is Down Twitter Is Up

Hilarious to read the live stream of Twitterer's.  Apparently, Facebook is down a day after Time magazine knighted Mark Zuckerberg as Time's Person of the Year.  Oh, snap - but the white screen for the downage has been attributed to the rollout of new brand pages according to social media site, Mashable.

Ironically I had to snap up two posts from the Twitter stream from Forbes and Smosh.  Thought it said Forbes is down but darn eyes just playing tricks on me.

ForbesFacebook is down. We'll ask them why.

smosh: Really Zuckerberg? TIME names you name of the year, and you reward us with Facebook going down?

Life in these times is good.  This is from the last downage in September on

In addition, according to website Good, Mark Zuckerberg announced that he would join the like of Warren Buffet and Bill Gates to pledging to give at least 50% of their wealth away by the age of 65.  This announcement preceded his title of Time's Man of the Year.  The Giving Pledge is an honorable attempt of profit sharing from the wealthiest Americans by those signing up to give a majority of their wealth to philanthropy.

Perplexion on Alien Names other than Alien/s

Voltaire ElĂ©mens de la philosophie de Neuton (1738)
After watching Ancient Aliens, I am perplexed by human beings constantly calling “aliens” as such as well as E.T.’s, as in extraterrestrial.  So, my proposal is to rename such entities as H.I.’s, acronym for Higher Intelligence and meanwhile saying “Hello” to new beings on the outskirts of our global village.  I’d also consider Intergalactic beings (I.G.B.’s) or Celestial Entities (C.E.’s) over aliens as the etymology of alien is from the 14th century meaning “strange or foreign”. 

Our own government (who denies such space entities exist) considers others who are not U.S. citizens or naturalized citizens as aliens.  It begs to differ than why and what are we doing calling the outer space community or living forces from space as an object in a name that is exclusionary.  In the word, “extraterrestrial” it may not be as far off the mark with the word, extra and then terrestrial.  Oddly, with the review of the show Ancient Aliens, it must be said that the definition of the E.T. is extra meaning by definition is speculated from the word extraordinary.  Therefore, terrestrial from 15th century means earthly opposed to celestial and from 1590s meaning a human being, mortal

Let’s suffice it to say that we borrow a term from 1796 with Immanuel Kant’s noumenon, meaning object of intellectual intuitionKant was a transcendentalist who was a philosopher during the Enlightenment era, along with John Locke, George Berkeley and David Hume.  These men developed the science known as epistemology, which is the theory of knowledge.  In addition, the term noumenon is also considered an object or events only known to the mind, independent of the senses.  The term deals with human inquiry, understanding and cognition.  It is also simple known as the thing in itself.

Americanus Heroic in the Art of Information

In my efforts to understand culpability in the world, in my personal space and others around me, I must look again at the American government.  I am pleased to find other's whose concerns are shared.  In the interest of learning and education, one person comes to the rescue.  His name is Jess Bachman and his site is about visualization of numbers and information.  His site is title the Art of Information.  One of his visual maps was in, title Evolution of Household Budgets. One of his largest endeavors is the poster titled Death and Taxes.  He describes it as:

"Death and Taxes" is a large representational graph and poster of the federal budget. It contains over 500 programs and departments and almost every program that receives over 200 million dollars annually. The data is straight from the president's 2011 budget request and will be debated, amended, and approved by Congress to begin the fiscal year. All of the item circles are proportional in size to their funding levels for visual comparison and the percentage change from both 2010 and 2001 is included so you can spot trends.

Waging War on Minimum Economics

While my mind has reverted back in time, I have been looking at some number issues like a third grader and yet it has real significance in our world to go back to our childhoods to understand what went wrong.  As I sit thinking about poverty and the culture of poverty, I must wonder what and how our nation became the siphon of numerical boorishness.  It has become a breach of law in the context and form of incomputable data. 

Median personal income for the population age 25 or older.
Wikipedia Personal Income in the United States
Today, the federal poverty line is for a single person, $10,830 and while the federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour.  If a person were to work 40 hours in a 4 week month, their income would be $1160 and $13920 annually.  The lowest common denominator worker would make $3090 more than the federal poverty level, which is 28% more on $7.25.  While we hear about world poverty and good ole U.S.’s fight for the greater good and equalizing the world, there are many who do live on less than $2.50 a day, also claims that at least 80% of humanity live on less than $10 a day.  So, breaking down the poverty line in the U.S. for one person, the amount the person lives on per day after spending money on housing at the cost of $500 a month ($6000 a year), afterwards the person has $13.76 to buy food and clothing and whatever excess they can afford.  On minimum wage that daily spending allowance with the same amount in rent becomes $22 a day.  Keep in mind that the only paid expense in this calculation is for a roof over one’s head and not the energy that is needed to run the unit or buy other necessities for it.  In America, that would certainly require some extreme due diligence and self control to live in such a confined economic compass.  Some of these minimum wage workers are often living with others, in shared housing and joint household financial responsibilities but for true self sufficiency and sustainability, the minimum wage worker has just very little above the National poverty line.  Forget a car or internet or television or whatever luxury they desire.  Yet, American culture inbreeds our desires and need for consumerism and excessive displays of vanity.  The lines of ethics and moral coding are blurred into oblivion.  Are we not then living in moral poverty, although the world suffers in smaller numbers.  Is the quest of the American dream to live in freedom or free to earn a living wage with allowances.  In my opinion the American institution is to preserve truth and justice.  It makes me ponder how much truth and justice have we lost as the world's economy has stabilized but our is ripping at the seems. This data only applies to one person and forget trying to raise a child or more on that income.  It is tiring to hear about other nations ailments when the United States is collapsing from dire need of healthy attributes? 

Household Budgets Changed - See How at - Evolution of Household Budgets

According to, EMT’s, pharmacy techs, auto mechanics, preschool teachers, CNA’s, line cooks and other various jobs earn slightly above the newly federal minimum wage.  Retail is notorious for hiring at minimum wage.  As it is there are supposedly over 9 million people who make minimum wage in this country, however I suspect the numbers as much larger.  One thing pundits are spinning concerning how raising the federal minimum wage will make American companies leave the United States and outsource jobs to foreign workers, is a cheap shot at controlling the market.  According to, in 2005, they predicted 8 million outsourced jobs.  Jobs that has become global has had its reward’s as the global market has widened and the economy can be more balanced but is it truly American greed sitting like a bull in the way to progress?  While outsourced jobs are training other able body humans to work at a lesser amount, the American ingenuity and ethical deployment of sustainability has also left the Nation.  Those who are educated can't seem to find work in their fields, as positions have halted in the industrial complex.  There is no security in any job market other than banking and because their exorbitant incomes, they can take the pressure and hits to their wallets.  Average citizens are losing homes, loans, credit and practicality.

Immigration has filled the void in some respect but the decline in the types of employment from the 1950’s to now have diminished as well.  The majority of the U.S. workforce was blue collar industrial and agricultural jobs with average family median income of $23,000.  A house at during those times cost $8,500 and by the close of the decade was $12,500, according to   A house today averages close to $200,000 and in California that cost increases by 3 folds.  Is that not a 425% increase since 1950?  Inflation over the last 50 years of $8,500 on the inflation calculator would be $60,741, which is $139,259 difference and a 436% increase in pure profit.  What does that matter to a person making minimum wage?  It would take that person 70 years to earn $200,000 without any expenses.  This is just a perspective of a citizen who had relatively little or no knowledge of numbers and or resources from others, i.e. family, extended family, working on building a family and trying to apply a sense of security in today’s world.  Money doesn’t buy happiness but it does buy and build security.  Is this another flaw in our human precept of survival?
