Pathway in the Sea

Ever see a butterfly flutter by? John 3:7-8

Psalm 77:19

Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.

"The best way to show that a stick is crooked is not to argue about it or to spend time denouncing it, but to lay a straight stick along side it."

Updates to Data Use Policy and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (excerpted)

We are also proposing changes to our site governance process for future updates to our Data Use Policy and SRR. We deeply value the feedback we receive from you during our comment period but have found that the voting mechanism created a system that incentivized quantity of comments over the quality of them. So, we are proposing to end the voting component in order to promote a more meaningful environment for feedback.

Operation "Broken Arrow" (excerpted)

Let there be "no representation without taxation". Adopting that voting policy, along with the abolition of the NWO economic warfare of graduated "income tax" in favor of the equitable distribution of the tax burden by the frugality- and conservation-incentivizing policy of taxing individuals and corporations at a single, across-the-board-of-economic-classes, rate on their consumption of goods and services. That way, everybody who votes, from the corporate CEO to the derelict buying alcohol and cigarettes, will have an incentive to keep taxes as low, and the government as fiscally efficient, as possible.There are only bad reasons for opposing such a unifying tax policy, and they invariably originate with those who benefit from the current financial policy at the unjust expense and disenfranchisement of those who are oppressed under it.

"Conservative" talk-radio personality Dennis Miller, whether knowingly or not, is promoting the Cloward and Piven scheme for collapsing the American socio-economic system under "the weight of the poor". A caller to his radio show said that after the last Presidential Election, he and his wife were moving to interior Maine to sustain themselves outside the financial system as much as possible in order to contribute as little as possible to the tyrannically collectivized state economy. Dennis Miller advised him to apply for state entitlement benefits in order to "get back what has been taken from you" when you fall below a certain level of income.

Here is the underriding fallacy of the popular misconception of macro-economics:

The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward (1926–2001) and Frances Fox Piven (b. 1932) that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of "a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty".

The public is brainwashed to believe that poverty is a lack of money and jobs. Money is a means of exchange of goods and services between economic entities such as people, corporations, institutions or government. Jobs are 
economic arrangements whereby individuals are compensated with money or other benefits by people, corporations, institutions or government for the performance of certain behaviors which are delineated as a job description. Poverty is a lack of access to goods and services. One can have money and a job and have still have poverty or a lack of access to goods and services. A part time minimum wage working person can fall under this category. One can have neither money nor a job and have access to more goods and services than they can possibly use. The child of a wealthy family can fall under this category.

Money and jobs are not what made the United States of America wealthy. It was innovations and inventions that increased the capacity for the production and distribution of goods and services that made America wealthy up to about the early 1970's. The supply of money and jobs was a consequence of this increased capacity and not the cause of it. It was a glut of massive national public and private indebtedness facilitated by a fraudulent national currency that maintained the illusion of American wealth and power over the last four decades or so, while the actual wealth, the capacity for production of goods, has been transferred elsewhere. The true poverty of America is becoming and will become more apparent when those who have the capacity to produce goods no longer accept our fraudulent debt instruments, especially our currency, in exchange for those goods.The Nixon/ Kissinger opening of trade with the collectivist/slave economy of the "People's Republic" of China was a cynical ploy to ensure this catastrophic outcome for the American People. Nixon. The "conservative" president. 

The reason "Operation Broken Arrow" is a First Amendment Petition and not a political movement is because the American Public, whether red or blue, are brainwashed by the government/ media hyperstate to believe that anything short of a total overhaul of the entire system, STARTING WITH THE CURRENCY, will permit even the POSSIBILITY of the liberties that the Constitutional Bill of Rights was ratified to protect. This is also the reason I describe the "Tea Party" as the "Taking Evasive Action Party". The 2010 midterm elections were simply a dose of Lunesta and a lullaby to put the public back into its zombie-like stupor.

Poverty Comes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
"Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: so shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man."--Proverbs 24:3334
The worst of sluggards only ask for a little slumber; they would be indignant if they were accused of thorough idleness. A little folding of the hands to sleep is all they crave, and they have a crowd of reasons to show that this indulgence is a very proper one. Yet by these littles the day ebbs out, and the time for labour is all gone, and the field is grown over with thorns. It is by little procrastinations that men ruin their souls. They have no intention to delay for years--a few months will bring he more convenient season--to-morrow if you will, they will attend to serious things; but the present hour is so occupied and altogether so unsuitable, that they beg to be excused. Like ands from an hour-glass, time passes, life is wasted by driblets, and seasons of grace lost by little slumbers. Oh, to be wise, to catch the flying hour, to use the moments on the wing!
May the Lord teach us this sacred wisdom, for otherwise a poverty of the worst sort awaits us, eternal poverty which shall want even a drop of water, and beg for it in vain. Like a traveller steadily pursuing his journey, poverty overtakes the slothful, and ruin overthrows the undecided: each hour brings the dreaded pursuer nearer; he pauses not by the way, for he is on his master's business and must not tarry. As an armed man enters with authority and power, so shall want come to the idle, and death to the impenitent, and there will be no escape. O that men were wise be-times, and would seek diligently unto the Lord Jesus, or ere the solemn day shall dawn when it will be too late to plough and to sow, too late to repent and believe. In harvest, it is vain to lament that the seed time was neglected. As yet, faith and holy decision are timely. May we obtain them this night.


Here are some things that contribute to real world poverty:

#1 Fiat currency. Empowers economic entities such as the federal government and central banks to access goods and services without requiring them to contribute to the production and distribution of them. While money serves an indispensable function in facilitating exchange, fiat money corrupts the process by the power it affords those that issue it.MORE CONSUMPTION AND WASTE OF GOODS AND SERVICES MEANS MORE POVERTY.
#2 Public Entitlements: Empowers beneficiaries of state programs (Social Security, Medicaid/ Medicare, Food Stamps, what have you...)  to access goods and services without requiring them to contribute to the production and distribution of them. When the government represents the electorate, unearned government payments to the electorate are morally indistinguishable from bribes.The truly insidious part of this is that it is bribing the electorate with its own indebtedness. NOBODY BUT NOBODY is proposing ending government bribery of the electorate. Except "Operation Broken Arrow", that is. MORE CONSUMPTION AND WASTE OF GOODS AND SERVICES MEANS MORE POVERTY.
#3 Excessive restriction of agriculture and manufacturing for indirect causes such as "climate change" or "endangered species". The key word here is "excessive". Designating existing agricultural property as "wetlands" or designating carbon dioxide as a "pollutant" are examples of EXCESSIVE restrictions.LESS GOODS AND SERVICES PRODUCED AND DISTRIBUTED MEANS MORE POVERTY. MORE GOODS AND SERVICES PRODUCED AND DISTRIBUTED MEANS LESS POVERTY.
#4 Excessive collectivized retirement benefits,specifically public sector and labor union retirees. Empowers non-productive individuals to access a disproportionate share in the output of the nation or corporation obligated to distribute retirement benefits. Due to the perpetual nature of such benefits, beneficiaries have no incentive to limit consumption of benefits such as healthcare or financial expenditures. MORE CONSUMPTION AND WASTE OF GOODS AND SERVICES MEANS MORE POVERTY.
#5 Restriction of innovations in the ways and means of production and distribution of goods and services in order to perpetuate obsolete "jobs". LESS GOODS AND SERVICES PRODUCED AND DISTRIBUTED MEANS MORE POVERTY.

You get the idea.

The most effective way to motivate the population to participate in the production and distribution of goods and services and to avoid consumption and waste of goods and services is to make the benefits and consequences of their behavior affect them as directly as possible. Free private enterprise with the state acting as an impartial referee instead of as a self-interested and impossibly overbearing participant in the economy is the most effective way to create such an environment. "Operation Broken Arrow" is the most direct path that I can think of to achieve that outcome. 

"Conservative" talk-radio personality Glenn Beck  has appeared (as has Rabbi Daniel Lapinon Life Today with James and Betty Robison to high praise from James as a "leader" raised up by God because evangelical Christian "leaders" have failed to raise the alarm about the course that America is on. Glenn Beck has interpreted the following quote by George Washington as meaning we can repair the system as one might repair a vacuum cleaner or automobile:
George Washington Quotes

14 May, 1787, Speech at Constitutional Convention, Philadelphia.

It is too probable that no plan we propose will be adopted. Perhaps another dreadful conflict is to be sustained. If to please the people, we offer what we ourselves disapprove, how can we afterwards defend our work? Let us raise a standard to which the wise and the honest can repair. The event is in the hand of God.

The actual meaning of Washington's quote is more clearly explained here:

It is a solemn warning against the perils associated with empowering the state towards the end of creating socio-economic security for the public. He subscribed to the Biblical prescription of fearing God, departing from evil and relying on God for socio-economic security.(The event is in the hand of God.)

 "Operation Broken Arrow" is a true call for the wise and HONEST to repair to the standard raised at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1789.
