“Rowing,” by Alpha Unit

Anyone who has not rowed in a really close boat race cannot comprehend the level of pain. – Dan Topolski

In 1936 the United States Men’s Olympic eight-oar rowing team won the gold medal in Berlin. These rowers from the University of Washington were the sons of laborers, farmers, loggers, and shipyard workers. They had beaten their acclaimed arch-rival, Berkeley. They had prevailed over elite East Coast rowing teams. They had defeated Great Britain, whose Olympic team were oarsmen from Oxford and Cambridge. People who read their story are moved and inspired by it, seeing it as a story of underdogs who came out on top.

Perhaps it is. But rowing began as a “blue collar” pastime. Rowing contests had long been popular with sailors and fishermen and in fact dated all the way back to ancient times. But the modern sport of rowing was created by working class men in eighteenth-century England. They were ferrymen and taxi service providers on the River Thames.

Boatmen began to compete with one another, first for pleasure, to see who would arrive at his destination first. The races became popular and started to attract crowds. Rowing evolved into a bona fide sport when wealthy enthusiasts began offering prizes to the winners. By the 1820s Oxford and Cambridge had established their famous Boat Race.

Rowing eventually caught on in the United States, too, initially in the port cities of New York, Boston, and Philadelphia. It was one of the first sports to become popular here, particularly among those who could afford it; Yale University started the first collegiate rowing club in 1843. The oldest intercollegiate athletic event in the country is the Harvard-Yale Regatta, established in 1852.

Because of the cost of boats, equipment, maintenance, and training facilities, rowing was expensive. But people liked watching it in the same way people enjoy watching other expensive sports like auto racing. (In fact, NASCAR has similar origins to that of rowing – ordinary working people deciding to race one another while transporting certain goods.)

In competitive rowing, the boats, or shells, come in two types. In a scull, a rower has two oars. In a sweep boat, each rower has one oar. Each seat in the boat is numbered according to its position going from bow (front of the boat) to stern (back of the boat). Where there is a coxswain, he or she occupies an extra seat, usually at the very rear, facing the direction the boat is headed, while rowers face the rear.

For sculls there is the single (one rower), the double (two rowers), and the quad (four rowers). For sweep boats there is the pair, the coxed pair (two rowers and a coxswain), the four, the coxed four (four rowers and a coxswain), and the eight (eight rowers and a coxswain).

The coxswain (COX-un) or cox is smaller than the rest of the team but is a vital addition to the boat. This person’s main job is keeping the boat in its lane. If it moves out of its lane it can be disqualified, so the cox keeps it straight, steering it by pulling wires attached to the boat’s rudder. The safety of the boat and everyone in it is the cox’s responsibility. The cox is also the voice of the boat: he or she calls out instructions to the crew and motivates and guides them till the end of the race.

Take, for example, the men’s eight. At the front of the boat are the bow pair, seats 1 and 2. At the back of the boat are the stern pair, seats 7 and 8. The rower closest to the stern, in seat 8, is the stroke. The stroke sets the pace for the crew. Everyone else follows his timing, placing their blades (oars) in and out of the water exactly when he does.

The stroke establishes the crew’s rate (number of strokes per minute) and rhythm. In addition to having great stamina he is one of the most technically sound members of the boat.

The rower directly behind the stroke in seat 7 closely follows the rhythm set by the stroke and helps transmit the rhythm to the rest of the boat.

The middle rowers (numbers 3, 4, 5, and 6) are the heaviest and most powerful rowers. Their nickname is the engine room. These rowers, being closer to the centers of mass and buoyancy, have less effect on boat movement so they don’t have to be as technically proficient. They can concentrate on pulling as hard as they can.

The bow pair are the stabilizer of the boat. The hull is narrower at the front of the boat and rowers can easily feel any subtle movements there. The bow pair have to be able to make appropriate adjustments while keeping in sync with the stern pair. Bowmen are usually smaller than the rest of the rowers.

From the start of the race the cox is instructing the team, letting them know when and how to adjust their rowing and at times telling them who’s ahead or behind and by how much. He drives them forward, and they’re going to need it. Not long after they begin rowing, every fiber of their bodies is going to be screaming at them to give up.

Pain is an inescapable part of sports. But with rowing, there are no “time outs” for pain. The race doesn’t shut down because people are in pain. You brace yourself for the pain and when it comes – and it surely will – you begin to fight it. Rowing is essentially a contest to see who can endure the most pain. That’s what some rowers say. Here is rower John Seabrook’s well-known observation:

Marathon runners talk about hitting “the wall” at the twenty-third mile of the race. What rowers confront isn’t a wall; it’s a hole – an abyss of pain, which opens up in the second minute of the race. Large needles are being driven into your thigh muscles, while your forearms seem to be splitting. Then the pain becomes confused and disorganized, not like the windedness of the runner or the leg burn of the biker but an all-over, savage unpleasantness.

As you pass the 500-meter mark, with three quarters of the race still to row, you realize with dread that you are not going to make it to the finish, but at the same time the idea of letting your teammates down by not rowing your hardest is unthinkable.

Yes, rowing is about pain. But sometimes a crew doesn’t just keep pushing ahead through pain; they actually rise above it.

Legendary rowing coach Ky Ebright said that a boat cannot be jerked through the water. There is a rhythm of the water and everything must flow smoothly. And sometimes a team will begin to adjust to each other through what Michael Socolow calls a nonverbal and unconscious “cooperative physicality.”

If one rower barely drops his hands, somewhere else in the eight, another will slightly raise his to maintain balance and harmony. The process is automatic. Every single stroke is slightly different, with numerous tiny, simultaneous adjustments constantly occurring, until a crew move beyond conscious adjustment and into the realm of unspoken sensitivity to their environment and teammates.

With all eight oars in sync like this, a team can reach a moment when the boat seems to lift out of the water, says one rower.

…Then all of a sudden the race is over and you don’t remember anything about the race except that you ended up two boat lengths ahead.

This moment is what rowers call swing. This, more than anything else, is the goal of rowing.

Rowers will tell you that they’ve only experienced swing in perhaps three or four races in their entire careers. You can’t conjure up swing or force it to happen. You have to have some other way to get through. Trevor Teller tells what keeps him going until he’s over the finish line.

The reason I never stop is because giving up before the end would make all the pain pointless.

“Alligator Hunting,” by Alpha Unit

Tailgaters do it when the University of Tennessee plays the University of Florida. Georgia Bulldogs fans also do it when the Florida Gators are in town. Fans do it when LSU plays Florida and when Mississippi State plays Florida. They roast, grill, or barbecue whole alligators.

Alligator tail steaks are another favorite, the tail being the tenderloin. Harlon Pearce of Harlon’s Louisiana Seafood says that alligator tail has four cylindrical tubes of muscle, or four lobes, like tuna. “You slice that and pound it like veal, and you cannot tell the difference,” he told the Times-Picayune of New Orleans. “You can handle and treat that like a good piece of meat, even grill it.”

Donald Barkemeyer, whose renowned alligator sausage you can buy at Winn-Dixie, says he cooks alligator tail with just butter, lemon, and garlic, baking it at 350 for half an hour.

The rest of the alligator is red meat and is tougher than the tail. It’s better braised in a nice sauce, says chef Greg Sonnier.

Licensed alligator farms throughout the Southeast supply meat to grocery stores and restaurants and also ship alligator meat to various other parts of the world. And alligator hunting is legal in South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas. There is no typical way to catch alligators legally in this country.

In some places an alligator must be restrained before you shoot it; other places allow you to shoot free swimming alligators. Some places allow you to use a shotgun with #4 shot or smaller; other places prohibit shotguns altogether. In Texas you can’t use a firearm on an unrestrained alligator at all unless you’re on private property.

In Arkansas you must use a shotgun (or shotgun shell loaded bangstick) to kill the alligator, while in other places you can use a handgun of any caliber.

In Florida, once the alligator is attached to a restraining line, the only way you can shoot it is with a bangstick. Chris Eger has a tutorial on what that is:

To sketch out the broad strokes, it’s a pole with a stainless steel chamber attached to it that holds a live round of ammunition over a fixed firing pin. When you hit the dangerous end of this chamber with a good amount of oomph onto a target, it forces the round back onto the pin and out fires a projectile.

Most manufacturers use a simple cotter pin, hairpin, or braided wire thread as a physical safety so that the bangstick doesn’t go off until you really want it to. There is no trigger.

There are also no sights and no magazine or action as with other firearms. Chris Eger says even though bangsticks fire modern rimfire and centerfire rounds, the ATF does not consider them to be regulated firearms. (He cautions that if your bangstick is shorter than 26 inches and has a firing pin, you have an unregistered NFA firearm, which can land you right in the slammer.)

Unregulated alligator hunting from the nineteenth century to the 1940s nearly drove alligators in the US to extinction. In 1941 Alabama became the first state to pass legislation to protect them, and by 1967 the American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) was put on the Endangered Species List. They rebounded to such an extent that they were removed from the Endangered Species List in 1987. They do remain federally protected.

In some areas, especially Florida, people see them as a nuisance.

There is also a demand for their skins and meat, so alligator hunting and farming are thriving. They do have their local ups and downs, of course. Some alligator hunters in Louisiana weren’t as enthusiastic last season as they had been in seasons past. They said that because of the overabundance of alligator skins and the economy being down, a lot of people just weren’t buying.

“River Traffic,” by Alpha Unit

The West Coast of the United States has many busy container ports familiar to most of us, such as the Port of Los Angeles, the Port of Oakland, the Port of Portland, and the Port of Seattle. The farthest inland seaport on the West Coast sits 465 miles upriver from the Pacific, in Lewiston, Idaho.

The Port of Lewiston gives offshore market access to farms along the Snake River, part of one of the most valued shipping routes in the US, the Columbia-Snake River System. The navigable portion of the system stretches from Lewiston to Astoria, Oregon, where the Columbia empties into the Pacific. It ranks first in the country for the transportation and export of American wheat.

The largest river in the Pacific Northwest, in fact, is the Columbia, with its headwaters in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia. Its drainage basin covers nearly all of Idaho and large parts of British Columbia, Oregon, Washington, and Montana. Its biggest tributary is the Snake River, which flows along southern Idaho and makes a northward turn to go up the Oregon border and enter southern Washington. It joins the Columbia River near Pasco, Washington.

The Columbia-Snake River System is a highway for barges carrying wheat from one of America’s breadbaskets, the Palouse Hills of Idaho and Washington. Truck drivers bring the wheat from farms to grain terminals at the Port of Lewiston, where workers load the wheat into barges that carry it to the Port of Portland to be transferred to oceangoing ships.

Barges take longer to transport goods than alternatives, but they are without a doubt the most fuel-efficient way to move grain, as a barge holds the equivalent of 16 railcars or 70 trucks. Barges keep thousands of trucks off the major highways surrounding the Columbia-Snake River System every year and keep rail rates competitive. Shipping by barge is one of the oldest ways of getting goods all over the country.

The first barges in the US were basically box-shaped floats that needed a “push.” Some could be quite large and carried substantial loads. Traveling downstream was fairly easy; you flowed with the current, poling and rowing when necessary.

Barges have since become flat-bottomed boats that are typically 200 feet long and 35 feet wide. A single barge or a group of barges lashed together makes up the “tow.” In some cases, such as on the Mississippi River, a tow might consist of 15 barges, grouped three abreast by five barges long. A tow like this carries the equivalent of 1,050 trucks. A towboat, steered by a captain and pilot, pushes the barges to their destination.

You might wonder as I did, “Why does a boat push the barges along?” In the way an outboard motor provides propulsion for a smaller boat, the towboat provides the rear propulsion for the barge tow. Workers attach cables to the stern of the towboat from the corners of the barge tow. Once the towboat gets going it acts as a rudder, with the pilot carefully steering the barges along the river.

It takes great skill to thread a barge tow through the locks of some waterways. River pilots get it done successfully every day.

Barges on rivers all over the US carry nearly every kind of open and covered dry cargo, such as coal, steel, gravel, lumber, grain, coffee beans, or soybeans. Some of them carry liquid cargo like petroleum, chemicals, or fertilizer. And some carry one-of-a-kind cargo, like the fuel tank NASA transported from New Orleans through the Panama Canal to California.

The size of a towboat crew will vary from place to place, but typically a crew are seven people: the captain, the pilot, two senior deckhands, two junior deckhands, and a cook. Work schedules might vary as well, but a typical rotation might be “7 days on/7 days off.” Or “14 days on/7 days off.” A 12-hour work day will have a “6 hours on/6 hours off” rotation.

One of the main duties for a deckhand is attaching barges together with rigging (“building tow”), a physically demanding and time-consuming job. His other duties are transferring rigging, handling lines, shifting barges, dropping off or picking up barges, checking the tow, minor engine room work (oil changes, greasing), and moving and operating portable pumps to pump ballast water out of a barge as cargo is loaded.

In addition there are tankermen who load and discharge petroleum products (mainly fuel) on barges.

You live on the boat for the duration of your hitch, so your other duties are standard housekeeping, painting, chipping, and in some cases cooking. The work schedules take a toll on family life, and you’ll hear deckhands declaring every now and then, “After this year, I’m done!” But a lot of them love what they do. Boatmen have an old saying: once you wear out a pair of work boots on the river, you’re here to stay.

Deckhands work both union and non-union, and in some parts of the US, there is no union contract for most riverboat jobs. But not on the West Coast. Boatmen working the Columbia-Snake River System – captains, mates, pilots, engineers, and deckhands – are union members, with deckhands represented by the Inlandboatmen’s Union of the Pacific. The IBU has been bargaining on behalf of boatmen since 1918.

“Chrome,” by Alpha Unit

“There’s no doubt about it,” says Brett Weaver, “everybody loves chrome.” He tells us that Americans have been fascinated with glittering, gleaming objects on their cars and motorcycles ever since there have been cars and motorcycles.

You just can’t help but turn your head when a gorgeous bike rolls by that has well-chosen, brilliant chrome rims and parts all polished to perfection.

Chrome is gorgeous on a bright, sunny day, especially riding along Oceanside Boulevard, with a nice breeze blowing in off the water and not a care in the world except what’s around the next curve…

Chrome isn’t just gorgeous. It’s also functional.

A lot of things people pay little attention to are plated with chrome. Hard chrome plating is a fairly heavy coating (measured in thousandths of an inch) that’s used in industrial machinery and on engine parts, for wear resistance, oil retention, and similar purposes. You’ll see it on things like cylinder rods, rollers, piston rings, thread guides, and gun bores.

On Ted Mooney’s site, he points out that many of the shops that do hard chrome plating do no other kind. So if a shop says they do “hard chrome only,” they have no service that most consumers would be interested in.

What most consumers are interested in is decorative chrome plating, also called nickel-chrome plating, the kind on the motorcycles that Brett Weaver writes about.

In chrome plating, an electrical charge is applied to a plating bath that contains an electrolytic solution with a salt such as chromium anhydride. The electrical charge causes the chromium metal in the bath to fall out of solution and deposit onto the metallic object that’s been placed into the bath.

A customer might arrange to have wheels chrome-plated, for example, at a shop like South Bay Chrome. As Curt Lout describes it, the first thing a worker does is strip the original factory wheel of its paint by dipping it into a stripping agent, to thoroughly remove the factory finish.

The worker wire-brushes the wheel clean and rinses it and then removes any nubs or imperfections on the surface. This is a critical step because the final shiny appearance depends on a good clean foundation. The worker will plate the wheel with an initial layer of nickel.

After the nickel plating, the worker electroplates the wheel with copper. The copper will act as a filler to smooth out any pits in the metal. After rinsing, the worker will attach an anode to the polished wheel to attract the chromium to the wheel surface. He applies current to the anode before dipping the wheel in chromium. After the wheel is electroplated the worker gives it another rinse.

The wheel now has its final blue luster and shine. The chrome will act as a protective coating over the nickel to keep it from tarnishing.

If you’re going to get an item chrome plated it is crucial that you get quality work. Ted Mooney explains by way of example that a zinc coating protects steel because zinc is “anodic” to steel; that is, when steel is under attack and about to lose electrons – which translates to rust – electrons will flow from the zinc to the steel to maintain the balance of the steel and protect it. The zinc corrodes instead of allowing the steel to corrode.

Could you use a nickel anode or chromium anode instead of zinc to protect steel? Absolutely not!

Steel is “anodic” to the nickel instead of the other way around….The steel will sacrifice itself to protect the nickel and chrome. So now imagine a steel item that is plated with nickel and chrome but has porosity or pinholes in the nickel plating. The steel will rust away, sacrificing itself to protect the nickel!

Porosity in nickel-chrome plating is a disaster, says Mooney, that doesn’t just fail to protect the steel but greatly accelerates the corrosion of the steel. He calls chrome plating a “barrier layer” plating: once the barrier is breached by a pinhole, very rapid rusting is inevitable. A low quality chrome plating job is worse than no plating at all, since the plating electrochemically forces the underlying steel to rust.

The bottom line: plating that is already showing tiny signs of rusting when you buy it indicates a manufacturing defect.

If your chrome plating is peeling, this is virtually always a manufacturing defect due to insufficient adhesion of the plating to the substrate. Mooney says that exposure conditions might harm or discolor chrome but they won’t make it peel. If your parts have peeling chrome, he says you should return them and not be deterred by any nonsense about “chemicals in your garage” or how frequently you wash the wheels.

And show appreciation for your friendly neighborhood chrome plating guy. He’s working with some rather hazardous materials to create that brilliant shine on your appliances and vehicle parts. Hexavalent chromium, or chromium-6, can be formed when workers perform “hot work” such as melting chromium metal or welding stainless steel. The electric charge during the chrome plating process causes the hexavalent chromium to be emitted as an aerosol.

Workers with repeated or prolonged exposure to these fumes can end up with irritation of the nose, throat, and lungs or irritation and damage to the eyes and skin. If the damage is severe, the nasal septum can be perforated. Chromium-6 is also listed as a carcinogen.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has workplace standards that employers must adhere to. The Environmental Protection Agency regulates the handling and disposal of the chemicals that chrome plating shops work with. Companies not in compliance do get fined. Or sued.

The usefulness and beauty of chrome ensures demand for it, though. There is quite a demand for chrome restoration of old vehicle parts. This is an involved process that requires stripping the chrome, stripping the nickel (and copper, if applicable), then polishing out all scratches and blemishes before beginning the electroplating process de novo. Of course, replating an old piece may cost several times what a replacement would cost. It’s all about the labor.

Some customers actually want a less finished look when they’re restoring chrome on old cars. Terry Meetz of Brillion, Wisconsin, has been in the chrome plating business for 30 years and finds that some customers want to replicate the original imperfect look on vintage cars. The quality of chrome on some old cars was actually poor when they left the factory. Meetz says that getting parts to look authentically “bad” is more work than giving them a show-quality shine. He jokes:

I would rather make it nice…It’s much easier for me to make it look nice than it is to make it look original.

“Fishing on the Big Black,” by Alpha Unit

The Big Black River, flowing southwest across Mississippi, is the site of a pivotal battle during the Vicksburg Campaign of the Civil War. After a decisive loss at Champion Hill, the Confederates reached the Big Black River on the night of May 16, 1863, under the command of Lt. Gen. John Pemberton, commander of the Confederate Army of Mississippi.

The Confederates constructed earthworks on the river’s east bank and placed 18 guns behind the works. Large sections of Pemberton’s line were protected by a bayou of waist-deep water. A planked-over railroad bridge and another makeshift bridge provided access to additional artillery overlooking the river on its west bank.

Union forces led by Maj. Gen. John McClernand encountered the Confederates early on the morning of May 17. It just so happened that the men led by Brig. Gen. Michael Lawler actually got to the Rebels first, wading through the bayou to overrun the Confederates on the east bank of the river. Inspired by Lawler’s attack, other Union formations surged forward.

Overwhelmed, the Confederates broke for the makeshift bridges to get to the west bank. Most of Pemberton’s men made it across, but Pemberton’s chief engineer set fire to both bridges to cut off any Union pursuit. Many of the Confederates tried to swim across the river and drowned. About 1,700 Rebels were stranded on the east bank and subsequently captured. It was the final battle before the Siege of Vicksburg.

After floods you can still sometimes find artifacts from the gunboat battles that took place on the Big Black River during the War. But most people on the river nowadays aren’t really interested in Civil War artifacts. The big payoff during springtime on the Big Black are flathead catfish – also called tabby cats, shovelhead cats, yellow cats, flatties, and who knows how many other names. The Big Black River will overflow her banks that time of year. As Cliff Covington tells it:

Foraging catfish move into the flooded timber in large numbers. Catfish anglers take advantage of this feeding frenzy by setting multiple trotlines in likely spots along the main channel. Chicken livers, cut skipjack, live goldfish, and pond perch are the baits of choice when a boatload of catfish is the big objective.

Muddy and slow-flowing due to the large amount of sediment it carries, the Big Black River is renowned for yielding blue, channel, and flathead catfish of what Covington calls “mythical proportions.” It is one of the premier handgrabbing destinations in the South. A handgrabber catches fish by placing his hands directly into a catfish hole, and some anglers are very good at it. Covington refers to Woodie Reaves, who says there is no better place for handgrabbing catfish than the shallow waters of the Big Black.

While Reaves’ personal best is a 93-pound whale of a catfish that he wrestled from its underwater bed just a few years ago, his group routinely lands up to 25 big cats, averaging 50 pounds each, every time they venture out on this stream.

Sportsmen say that the Big Black River is also a good place for bowfishing. Bowfishers use highly specialized bows to catch fish, usually on a boat set up just for bowfishing. Hunting fish using a bow and arrow isn’t new at all and is a traditional way of fishing all over the world. Bert Turcotte of Vicksburg has been an avid bowfisher since high school and says that anyone with a regular bow can also fish this way. As he told Phillip Gentry:

All kinds of bows can be used for bowfishing. People who like traditional archery can easily equip a recurve bow for fishing. Any compound bow can also easily be set up, but the range of draw weight is the key. Forty pounds of draw weight or less will get the job done here in Mississippi.

Unlike hunting bows, fishing bows come with reels for retrieving your prey.

In Mississippi you can legally catch carp, buffalo, gar, shad, bowfin, and catfish with a bow. There are restrictions, however, on when and where you can catch catfish in this way.

Gentry says that nearly all bowfishing is done at night when carp, buffalo, and gar can be found hiding in extremely shallow water. Buffalo and carp feed on aquatic vegetation and are especially fond of newly planted areas that have recently flooded from spring rain. Gar are the most commonly sought daytime species, he says, and can be found “sunning” in shallow water or lurking near the surface in deeper water.

Sean Ford of Madison, Mississippi, uses a gas generator on his bowfishing boat to power either sodium or halogen lights for night fishing. He says:

The platform will allow two of us to fish at the same time from the front as we ease along in shallow water with the trolling motor, looking for fish to shoot.

An angler will use a trolling motor on his boat in order to move quietly through the water. You don’t want to spook the fish.

“Networking Marketing is Capitalist Exploitation on Steroids,” by Magneto

Networking Marketing is Capitalist Exploitation on Steroids

By Magneto

Many of you may have had the misfortune of getting caught up in a network marketing multi-level marketing scam in the past. My own involvement in such an MLM scam is what eventually caused me to reject capitalism outright and start believing in socialism. Network marketing is capitalism on steroids. Normal capitalism is exploitation but at least in normal capitalism the worker class gets paid at least something. In network marketing you are working to make the top 1 percent rich and you are doing this for free.

Usually it starts out that an old friend will call you up and talk about how excited they are about their new business. A few days later they will call you again and see if you are interested in meeting to discuss their new “business”. If you agree to meet, they will typically show you a bunch of graphs and charts which claim you can become a millionaire within 5 years by following their program. What they don’t tell you is that 99% of people who sign up into MLM scams do not make any money at all from it. It’s literally only one out of a hundred people that profits from this.

Even worse is that most MLM companies use cult mind-control tactics to keep you from leaving their pyramid scheme. They use guilt programming and are constantly saying “Only losers quit this business”. That is a sure-fire sign that an organization is a cult when the leaders are constantly telling their followers to never leave the organization.

Network marketing companies thrive on naive young people who have never come in contact with an MLM pyramid scheme before. Older people are more mature and knowledgeable and know that pyramid schemes are wrong. But young people are easy to trick into these things because they have no experience of it. That’s why it is the duty of older people to warn younger people to never fall into these scams. No adult ever took the time to warn me when I was younger about the dangers of MLM’s, so I was just another victim of these pyramid scams.

I finally realized how immoral these types of businesses are, and I left the scam company and cut off all contact with the members of it. Donald Trump himself has a network marketing company, so that is another sign that he is just a greedy bastard who doesn’t give a shit about the common man and will do anything to exploit them so he can become rich. I realized that the logic that the MLM leaders use to justify their actions is entirely wrong. Society cannot function like this – where 1 percent manipulates the other 99 percent so that the 1 percent have all the money and the 99 percent have nothing.

Life is about more than money, but if you hear MLM leaders talk in their public speeches, you get the impression that money is all they care about. All they talk about is their expensive houses, cars and gadgets. What they don’t tell you is that 99 people had to fail in order for one person to get rich. The dreams of the MLM leaders are built on the blood, sweat, and tears of the 99 losers in the pyramid scheme.

A few common MLM’s that you should be very careful of are as followers:

  • Amway
  • Empower Network
  • Mary Kay
  • Herbalife
  • Nu Skin
  • Avon
  • Forever Living
  • Young Living

If you ever get invited or tricked into attending an MLM meeting, leave immediately. Do not even entertain the words of the MLM presenter. He will try to use a lot of logic and tricks to brainwash you into joining. Network Marketing and MLM’s are evil cults that thrive on manipulating ignorant people into joining. If we become active in warning people to avoid wasting their time and lives by joining such cults, we can save a lot of people and also stop the MLM’s because without a constant supply of new members, such pyramid schemes would collapse overnight.

Something Wrong with America? or Why Is America Hated? By A. J. Harvey-Hall

An interesting piece from a reader and financial supporter (thank you!) of this website. Hope you enjoy it.

Something Wrong With America? or Why is America hated?

By A. J. Harvey-Hall, Australia

Where do I start?

I originally wrote this in 2013 when I was mad as hell, and here we are in 2015, and I am still mad as hell at you guys. Most of what I have written has come true.

Don’t believe me – ask your Remote Viewing (Project Stargate) people to drop in and check me out. It works both ways in case you are unaware.

Coming from Australia I can tell you a hell of a lot of where America “went wrong”. I am not saying Australia is/was perfect – it’s just a fact we were the last large island/continent settled by the so-called enlightened Westerners – due to distance we saw where everyone else stuffed up and decided as a whole not to do that (Commonwealth knowledge?).

Canada is very similar to Australia, so look to them as well. One thing’s for certain – everyone gets a fair go in this country. We are multicultural and tolerant. Early Western settlers did not treat the Aboriginals appropriately, but in summary, it was probably no different to any superior culture that overtook another at some time in history. It’s easy to look back and say what the Westerners did to Aboriginals was disgraceful.

I have a right to tell you how it is because Australia is the only country that has fought every war alongside America all through WW1 and WW2 and several “police” actions.

Let’s revisit some words spoken by one of your greatest presidents in the course of the America’s Cup back in 1962 when Australia was still a country of 10 million:

Quoting Kennedy –

Ambassador, Lady Beale, Ambassador and Mrs. Berckmeyer, Ambassador and Lady Ormsby Gore, the Ambassador from Portugal, our distinguished Ministers from Australia, Ladies and Gentlemen:

I know that all of us take the greatest pleasure in being here, first of all because whether we are Australian or American, we are all joined by a common interest, a common devotion and love for the sea.

And I am particularly glad to be here because this Cup is being challenged by our friends from Australia, this extraordinary group of men and women numbering some 10 million, who have demonstrated on many occasions, on many fields, in many countries, that they are the most extraordinarily athletic group in the world today, and that this extraordinary demonstration of physical vigor and skill has come not by the dictates of the state because the Australians are among the freest citizens in the world, but because of their choice…

Australia became committed to physical fitness, and it has been disastrous for the rest of us. We have the highest regard for Australia, Ambassador. As you said, we regard them as very satisfactory friends in peace and the best of friends in war. And I know there are a good many Americans of my generation who have the greatest possible reason to be grateful to the Australians who wrote a most distinguished record all the way from the desert of North Africa, and most particularly in the islands of the South Pacific, where their particular courage and gallantry I think met the strongest response in all of us in this country.

But I really don’t look to the past. I look to the present. The United States and Australia are most intimately bound together today, and I think that — and I speak as one who has had some experience in friendship and some experience in those who are not our friends — we value very much the fact that on the other side of the Pacific, the Australians inhabit a very key and crucial area and that the United States is most intimately associated with them. So beyond this race, beyond the result, rests this happy relationship between two great people.

– President John F. Kennedy, Newport, Rhode Island, September 14, 1962

Let’s go back to the (your) War of Independence:

The English were wrong in what they were doing – hence independence – not a problem. In gaining independence however you put in place the building blocks that as of today are not crumbling – they have already crumbled.

Every builder in the world knows that unless your foundations are spot on and repaired when cracks appear, a structure cannot live for hundreds of years. You must update and repair as you go to ensure the building is viable for hundreds of years ongoing – not just paper over it.

The building I am referring to is the “United States of America”. It has now crumbled as a result of a demarcation dispute between your two political parties that act worse than our Australian Parliament. Each party is only out to make a name for itself and has lost the understanding of “serving the people”.

Let’s talk about your constitution – ohhh – am I upsetting you already? Remember I am an outsider who is looking in giving you an unbiased opinion.

When your Constitution was framed it was OK, for the day!

It is now the oldest ‘out of date’ Constitution in the world. Don’t stand behind your outdated constitution. Start again. Be bold.

Yes – you have made amendments, but those amendments are just papering over extensions – you need to go back and look at the foundations and do the work there.

Take one example – a right to bear arms.

It was OK 200 years ago when things were a bit rough – it is not acceptable in the 20th or 21st Centuries, but you will not remove that right. How many people have died in your country as a result of that one so called right?

Your gun culture is one of the bases (not basis) that has crumbled. This is ultimately why you have numerous police forces that are happy to shoot first and ask questions later.

Your children and work colleagues will continue to die in massacres as a result of this “right“. They will continue to die in soft target areas such as schools, mass transport, malls, parades (early days – wait for it).

Hang on – maybe the British, Russians or Communists are still coming to invade. Pity you don’t update your Constitution the same way you enforce updates to laws you force upon people who want to trade with you.

You allow gun lobbyists to “set the course” with government officials, senators and the public.

Since when did lobbyists of any ilk run the government? Since when did they represent “the people”?

You continue to think of arms as a gun – they are no longer guns – instead are bombs, viruses or maybe even the Internet itself. But it’s OK because you have a right” to bear arms.

Let’s talk about your medical care.

Actually let’s save time and refer to Michael Moore. He is spot on. How can you allow your own citizens suffer and even die on the streets because they don’t have medical insurance? And some of your citizens applaud this stance.

How about your returned veterans – even wounded veterans have to fight to get medical assistance upon return – why – because you outsourced the process and someone applied expiry dates that wounded veterans were not aware of. It then requires an act of Congress or a law to be passed to allowed them back into the system.

More veterans have committed suicide upon return that you lost in actual combat. That is an absolute disgrace.

Even that poor, small country across from Florida – Cuba – does it better than you. A pissant island makes you look like a disgrace. Ohhh that’s right…you won’t interact with them because they put one over you in the Cuban Missile crisis. Get over it – you eventually did with Vietnam. And that leads me to another chapter – Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia…or shouldn’t I mention all the “minor” illegal wars you waged?

You lost LOST the Vietnam War – admit it. You will also lose the Afghanistan and Iraqi Wars. The Middle Eastern wars are also bankrupting your country – why can’t day to day Americans see this? No one (starting with Alexander the Great) has ever conquered Afghanistan – get real or get out.

If you think those wars are over, and as G. W. Bush said, “Mission completed”…think again. You have effectively put people in charge who are far worse than the dictators that were already there in Egypt, Iraq, Tunisia, Afghanistan etc. and now you are trying to do the same in Crimea via the Ukraine. You are responsible for the extremists that are now running around the Middle East, and I don’t mean Al Qaeda. You are responsible for the creation of ISIS.

Let’s look at all those African refugees (including Syrians, Lebanese etc.) who are risking their lives to cross the Mediterranean Sea to get to Europe. The USA is totally responsible for all these simply because of WMD lies that resulted in the invasion of Iraq. All Middle East actions from thereon are his fault. He is a war criminal – oopps did I break one of your laws saying he is a war criminal in the land of the free and home of the brave? The land of free speech?

Fact – history is written by the victors.

The USA is trying to run the Middle East like a corporation – all the top executives from the G. W. Bush era on are criminals lining their own pockets.

Starting wars in the 21st century will no longer get a country out of a recession. It’s simply profit-making. Why don’t you take Saudi Arabia to task for 9/11? Ohhh that’s right, they control the oil flow. Don’t upset them – why don’t you find an alternative to Middle East oil?

Are you getting a message here?

The entire world dislikes and even hates you. You have acted the bully for many years after The Korean War, effectively destroying the good will you established in the early 20th century. You are hated across all lines – economic, religious, social, political and otherwise.

What is your obsession with Israel?

Fact – Israel was founded by Jewish terrorists. They set off bombs, killed people and destroyed property to achieve their aims. Because the world had ‘sympathy’ for Jews after WW2, it happened and a blind eye was turned. Today Middle America strongly believes in the Bible literally and as such wants to see Israel succeed in order the “Second Coming” results.

People – the Bible is a guide. It is not Gospel.

Why? In the early centuries, the Roman Catholic Church held conferences and decided which books, writings and teachings ended up in “The Bible”. God did not decide which early Christian books ended up in The Bible – so it is absolute rubbish for someone to state that the Bible guides what the United States should do. Too many real accounts of Jesus’ workings were excluded. The Roman Catholic Church is responsible for closing our eyes to the real Christ.

Hopefully Pope Francis can arrest this BS.

There are numerous United Nations resolutions that Israel has refused to comply with. By the way – are you (USA) financially paid up with the UN, or do you still refuse to pay in a timely manner in order to attempt to remind them that you rule over them?

How about the Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq that lead to invasion? Colin Powell held up a drawing and said – here is the proof. You never found proof and never admitted you were wrong. Yes – Saddam Hussein was a bastard but he had the warring clans under control. It was all ALL about oil and nothing else. When the mud got too deep, you changed tact and said it was all about democracy. How far is Greece from Iraq? – damn closer that the USA. If the Greeks could not influence them – you sure in Hell can’t.

You can resolve the Palestinian problem in a matter of weeks, but you won’t due to that “minority” in the Middle East. This bullshit has been going on for 60 years.

Everyone knows (sorry – obviously you don’t) – the longer a problem festers, the harder and more costly it is to resolve.

I worked in the finance industry for many years and can only say that the number of times “we” (non-Americans) had to change our processes and rules etc. because the USA had set ‘”new standards” makes me sick. The standards set were not improvements – they were changed to line your pockets.

Look at Sarbanes Oxley for example – the world spent hundreds of billions of $’s attempting to comply because the USA would not do business with another country unless they did so only to see the USA itself found it too costly to implement itself! What a joke!

We now have many European countries in dire straits as a direct result of the exporting of American ways.

You destroyed the financial industry with your Subprime rubbish.

What about changes to financial models and makes etc. of any product or service that demand that people buy the “updated” version to reline your pockets. This is simply to keep the money wheel turning. You are desperately trying to ensure it keeps turning long enough for your problems to be passed to some other country or the next generation.

Ever thought about how much you spend on items such as defense, spying, war, inventing, manufacturing and using machines of war? Just imagine if only half of that was diverted to your health programs, science or to the benefit of other countries less fortunate? What about converting the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines into an international force for peace and relief of local and international disasters?

How can you allow a company to have a patent on the human breast cancer gene? You have to be kidding the world – but then again that’s your Constitution at work. No one owns human genes!

What happened to the “United States” that I remember as a child? That far-off country whose technology was so far advanced we could never dream of equaling.

What happened to that country that every county – even Russia in the old days – feared  -a form of respect?

Oh – and how long before I get the FBI, CIA, and all your other bullshit muscle agencies to frame me for some rubbish and shut me down…

A parting true story:

In late 1978/early 1979 my family traveled to Washington state where my father was working on behalf of a company in Australia. Unfortunately, departing Auckland NZ they had an emergency which meant we had to go back, dumping fuel on the way. 24 hours later we took off again after repairs and finally landed in Honolulu. My mother was pretty savvy and said get to the front of the Customs line so we can get to the connecting flight to LA.

Well – I was at the front of the queue, 18 years old, looking at an overweight female Customs officer wearing a gun strutting back and forwards. Her welcoming words to the Australians and New Zealanders were, “If you step over that yellow line, I will shoot you!” What a fucking joke – in 1978! No wonder you have a gun problem.

Welcome to America!

Congratulations to the NRA who lobby the most congressman/women on both sides.

Fact – I was born in July 1960, and in November 1963 I still vividly recall my parents being very upset when they heard of the news of Kennedy’s death despite my being three years old. All the more remarkable is the fact that we lived in Papua New Guinea – a protectorate of Australia at the time – literally a colonial backwater. I was too young to understand but remembered the words Kennedy and death and vaguely remembered the Cuba Crisis. We cried in the backwaters of the Pacific!

I fully understand that the Kennedys had their dalliances. Small beer in the scheme of things.

He and his brother are the standard you must return to.

Did Kennedy not say “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country?”

And in closing, written on the base of the Statue of Liberty…

“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Emma Lazurus

My country totally lacks world-shaking oratory ,but I think we more than make up with it in our actions.

My Reaction to the BBC Show “Three Girls,” by Magneto

My Reaction to the BBC Show Three Girls

by Magneto

I was very surprised when I saw the three-episode drama series “Three Girls” on BBC. It is a drama about the true events of Pakistani men grooming and raping young White British school girls. The reason I was surprised was because I never expected such a Cultural Marxist, pro-multiculturalism channel like the BBC to ever show anything which might give a negative impression on immigrants.
The first reaction most people will get after watching that is to feel anger and hate towards Pakistani men and to want to expel them from the UK. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Three Girls show caused the membership in White Supremacist organizations to double or triple. It’s a very disturbing show that is guaranteed to get an emotional reaction out of people.
But on thinking a bit deeper I realized that why should I feel angry? After all, these are the same White western women who have been shitting on White men for decades now and treating White men like shit in the name of feminism. Why should I care if they get raped? White women have treated White men like shit for decades, and now all of a sudden White men are supposed to jump to their defense? After years of White women screaming they are independent and don’t need a man’s help?
White women have effectively betrayed their own race by accepting feminism. Men do not have a duty to help people who have betrayed them. White women disrespect nice, normal White men as “nice guy Beta males,” go jump on the cock of the first Pakistani man they can find, and when things go wrong, expect the same nice guy Beta male White men to come to their defense and rescue them?
Sorry ladies, but you made your bed and now you have to lie in it. How many tens of millions of White men’s lives have been destroyed by White women in divorce? How many hundreds of thousands of White men have been driven to suicide after having their kids kidnapped by their ex-wives in divorce court and denied custody or visitation rights? And where was the White female outcry about this? There was none. White women have effectively stated that they could care less if the divorce system is so unfair to men that it drives men to suicide.
White women have raped tens of millions of White men in divorce court but now expect White men to feel an obligation to “save them” from the invading barbarian hordes who rape them? I don’t think so.
To make matters even worse, if a White male dares to even verbally protest against the anti-male feminist legal system, he is a “misogynist”. That’s like saying Jews who verbally protest against Nazis murdering them are being “racist against Nazis”. This is how badly feminism has infected the West. If a man so much as dares to suggest that men should be treated like human beings with human rights, he is a misogynist. As a result, tens of millions of younger men have become alienated from society, and this has led to the rise of ultra-conservative politicians beginning to win elections.
There is also somewhat of a generational divide in terms of this issue. Baby Boomer and Generation X men, basically any man over the age of 40, did not grow up in a man-hating feminist society. Women were still somewhat feminine and good during the youth of the Boomers and Gen Xers. But Millennial men and Generation Z men have grown up from birth in an anti-male feminist society, and that is why the majority of younger men are anti-feminist. Older men simply can’t comprehend this because they didn’t grow up in such a society.
The message that younger men have gotten from society and women in general is very clear- you hate us and don’t need us. Therefore do not be surprised when men do not come to the defense of women when women are in very real trouble.

“Are Brown Women the Answer for White Men?” by Magneto

Are Brown Women the Answer for White Men?

by Magneto

You don’t have to be a sociologist to figure out that feminism has hit White women the hardest. Feminism has influenced and affected all races of women, of course. But it seems that White women have become the most toxic women on the planet due to it. Is there some racial or cultural reason for this? I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this and here are some of my ideas.

White women have never been an oppressed race of women. Throughout history, White women have been the most privileged and spoiled race of women on earth. White women were treated like queens and never had to do manual labor outdoors in the hot sun like Black slave women or Brown women working in hot kitchens to cook meals for their families. White women never even had to learn to cook because they would just hire a Brown woman to do the cooking for them.

So you have this category of extremely privileged women who have developed a massive ego superiority complex over hundreds of years, and then you brainwash them with the idea that they are oppressed? Of course they will swallow such nonsense. It’s like a spoiled child. If you tell a spoiled child that they are a victim and are suffering from oppression, the spoiled child will believe you. Not because they are oppressed, but because they have become such extremely selfish people due to years of being spoiled.

Therefore the root cause seems to be selfishness. I think it’s safe to say that White women are the most selfish race of women on this planet. Of course there are some rare exceptions, but for the most part, do you see White women sacrificing their own happiness to serve their families the way that Brown and Black women do? Can you imagine a White woman voluntarily staying home to lovingly raise her children the same way that Brown women do?

Nope. White women are brainwashed that they need to live and experience the world and they can settle down later on in life. So while Brown and Black women are at home raising children and taking care of their families, White women are travelling all over the world and getting pumped and dumped like trashy whores.

I remember that I briefly dated a Mexican woman after I had just had a pretty bad experience with a White American woman. I was talking to the Mexican girl and telling her about the White girl, and the Mexican girl said, “She sounds like a very selfish person”. It really hit me at that point how different White women and Brown women are. Looking at that sexy Mexican girl with her dark brown skin, dark eyes, and black hair, I felt so attracted to and connected with her. I had never really had that kind of connection with a White woman, ever.

To summarize what I am trying to express in an overly simplistic way. If you marry a White woman, expect to get treated like shit by her, and there is a very real possibility she will divorce you, kidnap your kids from you, destroy you financially and emotionally in divorce, and then use the kids and custody as a weapon of extortion against you to try to literally drive you to suicide. White women are the embodiment of extreme selfishness. Now, on the other hand, if you marry a Brown or Black woman? You can expect to come home every day to a loving wife who will treat you with respect, who will lovingly raise your children, and who will be supportive of you and be a partner with you instead of a competitor.

White women have simply lost the ability to be good wives and mothers. I sometimes doubt if White women were ever good wives and mothers at any time in human history or if they have always been such extremely selfish creatures. Brown women are natural and are the embodiment of feminine grace and beauty. I think many White men realize all of this on a subconscious level, and that is why so many White guys marry Asian or Brown women.

White women are truly the Achilles heel of the White race. The Western world is in a state of total collapse right now, and it is directly the result of White women’s selfish life choices. I would advise all sane White males to turn towards Brown, Asian, or Black women and live a peaceful and happy life with them. Leave trashy White women behind and let them get pumped and dumped by White Trash trailer park garbage. Already it is happening. White men who are married to Asian, Brown, or Black women make $10K more dollars per year on average than White men who are married to White women. So that’s just more proof that if you’re a White male and want to have a successful life, the best option for you is to marry an Asian, Brown, or Black woman. Marrying a White woman is the quickest way to financial and emotional ruin.

“Latest Feminist Trend – Call All Men Pedophiles,” by Magneto

Latest Feminist Trend – Call All Men Pedophiles

by Magneto

Apparently calling all men rapists has gotten tiring for feminists, so now they need a new straw man label to throw at men. Well that new label is to call all men pedophiles. I believe Robert recently dealt with this exact issue.

Let’s say a woman sees something you wrote and doesn’t like it? Rather than logically refute your article, it would be much easier for her to just start throwing pejoratives at you. Nowadays calling men rapists doesn’t carry much weight since they’ve beaten that one to death. Instead the main pejorative women throw at you when they can’t defeat you in an argument is to just call you a pedophile.

One time I was on a Facebook group and I mentioned that I am married to a foreign woman. Immediately some White woman started attacking me and calling me a pedophile. Do White women even realize how racist they are? They are implying that non-White women are all just a bunch of girly dolls and slaves who cannot think for themselves, and thus any man who marries them must be a pedophile. Because after all, docile, feminine, non-feminist foreign women aren’t big, strong, independent women like White women. White women are implying that only White women are “mature adults,” and non-White women are all just “immature children”.

I also dealt with this recently. I’m friends with a lot of younger people from Generation Z (people born after the year 2000) because I really get along well with them. Why do I get along well with them? Because they are all very red-pilled. They all hate feminism, multiculturalism, and SJWs. Being friends with them gives me a feeling of hope for the future, and as a result I became a much more positive person.

So I randomly message a lot of people on Facebook and Instagram, just chatting and getting to know random people. I messaged some White chick from the UK. She asked me my age, and I told her I am in my 30’s. She reacted in a shocked way and said she was 14. I said cool, that’s fine with me.

Then she added me to a private chat group with her mom, dad, and brother and sister and the name of the chat group was “Pedo Help”. They started attacking me and accusing me of being a pedophile, and I told them “What the fuck is wrong with you people? What kind of horrible parents you are that you would brainwash your children to believe the whole world is out to get them, and everyone over age 30 is a pedophile. You should be ashamed of yourselves. And by the way, I’m friends with tons of younger people and none of them have ever accused me of being a pedophile before.”

Then they posted a picture I had posted of an Indian chick and I laughed, typing “LOL” and wrote “That girl is over 18, by the way”. I kept telling the mom that she is a horrible mother and should be ashamed for filling her children’s head with so much fear. The mother was probably 35 or so, a member of the Millennial SJW Generation. I finally just told her to go fuck herself, left the chat and blocked them all.

Unfortunately, the Millennial generation is the worst generation to ever exist. The vast majority are radical SJWs, and this is perhaps why the younger generation, Gen Z, is rejecting all of their SJW bullshit. I can’t wait for Generation Z to reach voting age, so they can start voting against the Millennials’ bullshit SJW politics. Millennial women are all total cancer. They are the worst feminists you will ever encounter.

Now what has been the practical result of this “All men are pedophiles” feminist hysteria?

The result is that men are afraid to even help a child if the child is in a life or death situation. Let’s say a child is drowning in a swimming pool. Most men would be afraid to jump in and help the child for fear that their SJW parents might accuse him of being a pedophile. The toxic man-hatred of Western women has reached such a point that many men are outright saying that they would never help a woman even in a life or death situation. For instance if a woman was getting raped in the street. Many men have openly stated that they would not help the woman because if they stop and help the woman, she might very well accuse him of trying to rape her too.

Western women have completely destroyed men’s natural instinct to protect women. Just think about that. That is the degree of man-hatred that Western women possess. They have successfully pissed off men to such an extent that men will refuse to help them even in a life or death situation. Congratulations, ladies. You got what you wanted. You have been telling us men for decades that you hate us and don’t need us. Fine. Next time you are getting raped or beaten or robbed in the street? Don’t be surprised when no man comes to your aide. You are truly on your own now and have attained the independence that you claimed you have wanted all this time. Enjoy, ladies!
