Gas prices are still fluctuating wherever I go, usually between $1.90-$2.15, which is absolutley ridiculous..... I was watching Fox News (which I dislike immensely) and thier energy analyst said that gas prices have already peaked for the year, due to oil rigs shutting down earlier this spring to prepare for summer production. On the same program, they had five so-called 'experts' debating the ups and downs of fuel prices. They were actually arguing that higher gas prices do not effect people as much as the population believes that it does.
Now, to be honest, I've not witnessed a decrease in the number of cars on the road, therefore the same amount of people are driving (of course this isn't a conclusion I've came to via the Gallup poll, just a personal observation), but It takes a huge chunk out of the everyday citizen's pocketbook. When I started driving, which was about 5 or 6 years ago, gas was just over $1/per gallon. It's increased an astonishing 115% since then.
Let's do a little math real quick:
Assuming that you have a car that has a 13 gallon fuel tank, filled up only once per week in 1997, at $1.03/per gallon-
(13 gal. x $1.03 x 52 weeks/year= $696.28/per year for gas).
Now, assuming that you have a car that has a 13 gallon fuel tank, filled up only once per week in 2005, at $2.15/per gallon-
(13 gal. x $2.15 x 52 weeks/year= $1453.40).
That is a difference of $757.12 in a years time. That is a big difference.
Granted, gasoline is still one of the cheapest liquids that you can purchase by the gallon... Milk is around four dollars/gallon as is orange juice, but the average consumer doesn't use 13 gallons of milk a week, or orange juice for that matter....
The United States will call Congress in for a woman in a vegetative state from Florida because it's the President's brother's home turf, but they won't put forth a bill or allocate money for alternative fuel research..... if we could get our troops out of Iraq and back home we could save a lot of money.... money that we could use to find alternatives for our feul economy.... I mean, I think that we could come up with at least a few good ideas with the $176 Billion-plus that we've spent so far bombing a country that's just going to breed more terrorists to attack us in the future with training that they gained from our military.

Memorial Day

Today is a day that inbetween the beer and the hot dogs, one should take time to be thankful. Not thankful that it is a governement holiday and that if you work that you were probably off today, but thankful in the reflection that hundreds of thousands of men and women have died in the name of freedom for this great country, it's people, and thier families.

When thinking about Memorial Day, I believe that it is imparitive that you ask yourself:
What is there that I hold more sacred, more important, than the value of my own life?

Without the deaths of our nation's soldiers, who have understood this question and answered it with thier actions, our freedom would have never been known. From the days of the Revolutionary War, our soldiers died for a cause that they believed that was greater than the value of thier own life. I for one, appreciate everything that they do and have done for over 229 years in this great country of ours.

We owe a debt of gratitude that we can never repay, because unless you have served, and I haven't, you don't know the actual cost of freedom. I think that this would be a far greater country than what it is if we understood the price of freedom, realizing that what freedom costs, which isn't free, but the lives of our servicemen and women, and that is what we are celebrating on this very day.

Knowledge Pt. 2 of 3

As corporations went international, national monopolies could no longer protect their interests. What was needed was a one world system of government controlled from behind the scenes. This had been the plan since the time of Colonel House, and to implement it, it was necessary to weaken the U.S. politically and economically. When the stock market crashed, many small investors were ruined, but not "insiders." In March of 1929 Paul Warburg issued a tip the Crash was coming, and the largest investors got out of the market, according to Allen and Abraham in "None Dare Call it Conspiracy." With their fortunes intact, they were able to buy companies for a fraction of their worth. Shares that had sold for a dollar might now cost a nickel, and the buying power, and wealth, of the rich increased enormously. Louis McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking Committee declared: "It was not accidental. It was a carefully contrived occurrence...The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so that they might emerge as rulers of us all."

Curtis Dall, son-in-law of FDR and a syndicate manager for Lehman Brothers, an investment firm, was on the N.Y. Stock Exchange floor the day of the crash. In "FDR: My Exploited Father-In-Law," he states: " was the calculated 'shearing' of the public by the World-Money powers triggered by the planned sudden shortage of call money in the New York Market." The Crash paved the way for the man Wall Street had groomed for the presidency, FDR. Portrayed as a "man of the little people", the reality was that Roosevelt's family had been involved in New York banking since the eighteenth century. Frederic Delano, FDR's uncle, served on the original Federal Reserve Board. FDR attended Groton and Harvard, and in the 1920's worked on Wall Street, sitting on the board of directors of eleven different corporations. "...Most of his thoughts, his political 'ammunition,'...were carefully manufactured for him in advance by the CFR-One World Money group. Brilliantly... he exploded that prepared 'ammunition' in the middle of an unsuspecting target, the American people--and thus paid off and retained his internationalist political support."

Taking America off the gold standard in 1934, FDR opened the way to unrestrained money supply expansion, decades of inflation--and credit revenues for banks. Raising gold prices from $20 an ounce to $35, FDR and Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau, Jr. (son of a founding CFR member), gave international bankers huge profits. FDR's most remembered program, the New Deal, could only be financed through heavy borrowing. In effect, those who had caused the Depression loaned America the money to recover from it. Then, through the National Recovery Administration, proposed by Bernard Baruch in 1930, they were put in charge of regulating the economy. FDR appointed Baruch disciple Hugh Johnson to run the NRA, assisted by CFR member Gerard Swope. With broad powers to regulate wages, prices, and working conditions, it was, as Herbert Hoover wrote in his memoirs: "...pure fascism;...merely a remaking of Mussolini's 'corporate state'..." The Supreme Court eventually ruled the NRA unconstitutional.

Since 1934 almost every United States Secretary of State has been a CFR member; and ALL Secretaries of War or Defense, from Henry L. Stimson through Richard (Dick) Cheney. In 1940 FDR defeated internationalist Wendell Willkie, who wrote a book entitled "One World," and later became a CFR member. Since that time nearly ALL presidential candidates have been CFR members. President Truman, who was not a member, was advised by a group of "wise men," all six of whom were CFR members, according to Gary Allen. In 1952 and 1956, CFR Adlai Stevenson challenged CFR Eisenhower.

In 1960, CFR Kennedy (who was probably killed because he had the courage NOT to go along with all their plans) CFR Nixon. In 1964 the GOP stunned the Establishment by nominating its candidate over Nelson Rockefeller. The 1972 "contest" featured CFR Nixon vs. CFR McGovern. CFR candidates for president include George McGovern, Walter Mondale, Edmund Muskie, John Anderson, and Lloyd Bentsen. In 1976 we had Jimmy Carter, who is a member of the Trilateral Commission, created by David Rockefeller and CFR member Zbigniew Brzezinski with the goal of economic linkage between Japan, Europe, and the United States, and: "...managing the world economy...a smooth and peaceful evolution of the global system." We have also had (though his name strangely disappears from the membership list in 1979) CFR director (1977-79) George Bush, and last but not least, CFR member Bill Clinton.

They have all promoted the "New World Order," controlled by the United Nations. The problem is that "...the present United Nations organization is actually the creation of the CFR and is housed on land in Manhattan donated to it by the family of current CFR chairman David Rockefeller," as Pat Robertson describes it.

The original concept for the UN was the outcome of the Informal Agenda Group, formed in 1943 by Secretary of State Cordell Hull. All except Hull were CFR members, and Isaiah Bowman, a founding member of the CFR, originated the idea.
The American delegation to the San Francisco meeting that drafted the charter of the United Nations in 1949 included CFR members Nelson Rockefeller, John Foster Dulles, John McCloy, and CFR members who were communist agents--Harry Dexter White, Owen Lattimore, and the Secretary-General of the conference, Alger Hiss. In all, the Council sent forty-seven of its members in the United States delegation, effectively controlling the outcome.

Knowledge is power. I often times find myself entertained by the lack of common knowledge and sense that a lot of individuals possess. Ignorance is the foundation for bigotry, hatred, and other forms of mindless actions and beliefs. That is why, I believe, that knowledge is one of the greatest tools in the world, educating and impowering the people to be stronger by using thier brain, a great gift. That is why I have chosen to take this time to enlighten the public on information that may be considered a little too liberal or 'taboo', but here is what I have to present, my research and findings thanks to several different websites:

The issue involves much more than a difference of philosophy, or political viewpoint. Growing up in the post-"Cold War," our generation was taught that those who attempted to abolish our national sovereignty and overthrow our Constitutional government were committing acts of treason. Please judge for yourself.

If one group is effectively in control of national governments and multinational corporations; promotes world government through control of media, foundation grants, and education; and controls and guides the issues of the day; then they control most options available. The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and the financial powers behind it, have done all these things, and promote the "New World Order" (not the famed group started in 1996 in WCW by Hulk Hogan), as they have for over seventy years.

The CFR is the promotional arm of the Ruling Elite in the United States of America. Most influential politicians, academics and media personalities are members, and it uses its influence to infiltrate the New World Order into American life. To understand how the most influential people in America came to be members of an organization working purposefully for the overthrow of the Constitution and American sovereignty, we have to go back at least to the early 1900's, though the story begins much earlier (depending on your viewpoint and beliefs). That a ruling power elite does indeed control the U.S. government behind the scenes has been attested to by many americans in a position to know. Felix Frankfurter, Justice of the Supreme Court (1939-1962), said: "The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes." In a letter to an associate dated November 21, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt wrote, "The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson." February 23, 1954, Senator William Jenner warned in a speech: "Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution is outmoded."
Baron M.A. Rothschild wrote, "Give me control over a nation's currency and I care not who makes its laws."
All that is needed to effectively control a government is to have control over the nation's money: a central bank with a monopoly over the supply of money and credit. This had been done in Western Europe, with the creation of privately owned central banks such as the Bank of England.

Dr. Carroll Quigley (Bill Clinton's mentor while at Georgetown):
"... nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole... controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences."
The Bank of the United States (1816-36), an early attempt at an American central bank, was abolished by President Andrew Jackson, who believed that it threatened the nation. He wrote: "The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government, the distress it had wantonly produced...are but premonitions of the fate that awaits the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it."

Thomas Jefferson wrote: "The Central Bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the principles and form of our Constitution...if the American people allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
Does that not describe the situation in America today?

The U.S. managed to do without a central bank until early in this century, when, according to Congressman Charles Lindbergh, Sr., "The Money Trust caused the 1907 panic, and thereby forced Congress to create a National Monetary Commission." Headed by Senator Nelson Aldrich, father-in-law of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., the Commission recommended creation of a central bank.
Though unconstitutional, as only "The Congress shall have Power...To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof..." (Article I, Section 8, U.S. Constitution) the Federal Reserve Act was passed in December 1913; ostensibly to stabilize the economy and prevent further panics, but as Lindberg warned Congress: "This act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth...the invisible government by the money power, proven to exist by the Money Trust investigation, will be legalized." The Great Depression and numerous recessions later, it is obvious the Federal Reserve produces inflation and federal debt whenever it desires, but not stability. Although called "Federal," the Federal Reserve system is privately owned by member banks, makes its own policies, and is not subject to oversight by Congress or the President. As the overseer and supplier of reserves, the Fed gave banks access to public funds, which enhanced their lending capacity.

Peter Kershaw, in "Economic Solutions" lists the ten major shareholders of the Federal Reserve Bank System as: Rothschild: London and Berlin; Lazard Bros: Paris; Israel Seiff: Italy; Kuhn- Loeb Company: Germany; Warburg: Hamburg and Amsterdam; Lehman Bros: New York; Goldman and Sachs: New York; Rockefeller: New York. (That most, if not all of these families just happen to be Jewish, you may judge the significance of yourself). The balance of stock is owned by major commercial member banks. The Federal Reserve pays the Bureau of Engraving & Printing approximately $23 for each 1,000 notes printed. 10,000 $100 notes (one million dollars) would thus cost the Federal Reserve $230. They then secure a pledge of collateral equal to the face value from the U.S. government. The collateral is our land, labor, and assets... collected by their agents, the IRS. By authorizing the Fed to regulate and create money (and thus inflation), Congress gave private banks power to create profits at will. As Lindberg put it: "The new law will create inflation whenever the trusts want inflation...they can unload the stocks on the people at high prices during the excitement and then bring on a panic and buy them back at low prices...the day of reckoning is only a few years removed." That day came in 1929, with the Stock Market crash and Great Depression.

One of the most important powers given to the Fed was the right to buy and sell government securities. This provided another built-in mechanism for profit to the banks, if government debt was increased. All that was needed was a method to pay off the debt. This was accomplished through the passage of the income tax in 1913.
A national income tax was declared unconstitutional in 1895 by the Supreme Court, so a constitutional amendment was proposed in Congress by none other than ...Senator Nelson Aldrich. As presented to the American people it seemed reasonable enough: income tax on only one percent of income under $20,000, with the assurance that it would never increase.
Since it was graduated, the tax would "soak the rich", ...but the rich had other plans, already devising a method of protecting wealth. As described by Gary Allen in his 1976 book "The Rockefeller File," "By the time the (16th) Amendment had been approved by the states, the Rockefeller Foundation was in full operation...about the same time that Judge Kenesaw Landis was ordering the breakup of the Standard Oil monopoly...John D...not only avoided taxes by creating four great tax-exempt foundations; he used them as repositories for his 'divested' interests...made his assets non-taxable so that they might be passed down through generations and gift taxes...Each year the Rockefellers can dump up to half their incomes into their pet foundations and deduct the "donations" from their income tax." In 1914 World War I began, and after American participation national debt rose from $1 billion to $25 billion.
Woodrow Wilson was elected President in 1913, beating incumbent William Howard Taft, who had vowed to veto legislation establishing a central bank. To divide the Republican vote and elect the relatively unknown Wilson, J.P. Morgan and Co. poured money into the candidacy of Teddy Roosevelt and his Progressive Party.

World War I produced both a large national debt, and huge profits for those who had backed Wilson. Baruch and the Rockefellers were reported to have earned over $200 million during the war. Wilson backer Cleveland Dodge sold munitions to the allies, while J.P. Morgan loaned them hundreds of millions, with the protection of U.S. entry into the war. With the end of the war and the Versailles Treaty, which required severe war reparations from Germany, the way was paved for a leader in Germany such as Hitler. Wilson brought to the Paris Peace Conference his famous "fourteen points," with point fourteen being a proposal for a "general association of nations," which was to be the first step towards the goal of One World Government-the League of Nations.

After a series of meetings, it was decided that an "Institute of International Affairs", with two branches, in the United States and England, would be formed. The British branch became known as the Royal Institute of International Affairs, with leadership provided by members of the Round Table. The Council on Foreign Relations was incorporated as the American branch in New York on July 29, 1921. Founding members included Colonel House, and "...such potentates of international banking as J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, Paul Warburg, Otto Kahn, and Jacob Schiff...the same clique which had engineered the establishment of the Federal Reserve System. Frederick C. Howe revealed the strategy of using government in a 1906 book, "Confessions of a Monopolist": "These are the rules of big business...Get a monopoly; let society work for you; and remember that the best of all business is politics..."

Okay.... let us divulge into the news of the world and see what we can learn:
A dutch driving instructor hit a knife-weilding fellow motorist with a baseball bat after the man with the knife bad-mouthed the student of the Louisville slugger-carrying teacher. A Czehchoslavakian man was killed when a load of manure was dumped on him from his truck near Karlovy Vary. In a related story a woman was walking her dog in a park when a mugger ran up on the lady and stole the bag she had in her hand. It contained poop. Roman Catholic cardinals have now selected a new pope, Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI), but a human rights lawyer filed a criminal complaint against an Argentine mentioned as a possible contender for the highest papal office, accusing him of involvement in the 1976 kidnappings of two priests... The complaint filed in a Buenos Aires court Friday by human rights lawyer Marcelo Parrilli accused [Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio], the archbishop of Buenos Aires, of involvement in the kidnappings of two Jesuit priests by the military dictatorship.

Anyways.... Friday night Southern States Wrestling offers up a warm-up to Saturday night's 'The Conclusion' brought to you by Championship Wrestling. On Saturday, a six-man War Games style cage match will take place with Beau James, Josh Cody, and the Super Destroyer taking on myself, Tony Givens, and Danny Ray in a Loser of the Fall must leave match. I really look forward to this match, as I do every match, but cage matches add a little something special to the proceedings, as anyone who has ever been in one can attest to.

I will be announcing my summer schedule on this weekend. I will be in the New England states some this summer, as well as making my rounds through the Carolina's and Virginia's.

Until next time, take care of yourselves, and love all.

Michael Jackson is in a world of trouble. I know that is stating the obvious but I really felt that it needed to be said again. You see, America like Michael so much that we, as Chris Rock stated, "let the first kid slide". We, as a nation, adored the man behind 'Thriller' so much that we were willing to forgive him for doing unspeakable, deplorable acts with young boys, only for him to decide that it was so nice that he had to do it twice. The boy from 1993 that MJ allegedly molested was asked to testify but negated to do so, not to let the story go untold, this now 25 year old's mother has gleefully decided to run her son's name in the mud and bring back repressed feelings of being sexually abused by arguably the biggest pop-star of all-time by agreeing to tell the story on the stand, again. A great charachter witness against Jackson, for emotional testimony is what every prosecution lawyer loves to use to sway a jury. Unfortunatley, in the judicial system, the way that the law is supposed to be interpreted and have judgement passed isn't always done the way it should be. You see, people are supposed to be either proven innocent or guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, only using evidence that is presented to them and thier interpretation of the letter of the law. As much as it sucks, juries are now easily influenced by emotions and threating letters to thier houses and hotel rooms, resulting in descions that are not exactly based on whether or not the case could be proven or disproven beyond reasonable doubt. So.... it really blows for whoever is on trial, because if you have a teary-eyed, touching testimony from a mom or sister or daughter, you might as well consider yourself guilty as charged. I feel that this will be Mr. Jackson's fate. He will be found guilty by a jury of his 'peers'. I don't know if Michael did it... again. I don't care if Michael did it... again. I hope that he won't do it... a third time. I do, however, know that Michael will be in jail. We're not talking about house-arrest. We're not talking about your local county jail. We're talking about ass-rape prison.

If you ever watch the Daily Show on Comedy Central, you've probably saw the classic clip where Rob Cordry is going around outside of the MJ trial with all of the rest of the reporters from the Cable news networks and is asking all of them questions and he goes,
Rob: "So, what is your favorite Michael Jackson song?"
Cable News Reporter:" 'I'm Bad' ."
Rob:" 'I'm Bad', okay, so, do you think he jacked that kid off?"

I feel he will be asked that question when a 6'4 1/4 295lb. monster named Bubba IV while enjoying a sensual shower on his second day with his new cell mate.

Poor Michael. Should've stopped with the first kid.
