(Editor’s Note: WordPress, the host of this blog, deactivated the blog Friday night, indicating that I had violated their Terms of Service as related to Advertising Policy. This blog has been going continuously since 2009…over FOUR YEARS with a perfect record of compliance. WordPress did not send me an email…make a note on my blog…call me…and tell me that there was some piece of content they wanted removed. They just shut me down. We here at DumpDC may need to move from WordPress to a private web host. We still love WordPress, but feel their treatment of us was pretty heavy handed. The site came back online about 3:00 Eastern Monday, and WP still has not communicated with me to tell me what they want done. We await their pleasure…)

Welcome to Flash Editorials for December 1st, 2012. Christmas…Bah, Humbug!!

I am Russell D. Longcore, owner and editor of DumpDC. Flash Editorials is presented by w w w dot Dump D C dot com. DumpDC is the world leader in secessionist thought. We show the world that secession is the only hope for personal liberty and property rights on the planet.


Now, to the news.

The pickins are pretty slim these days after the Obama win, but we do soldier on.

The Nation I: Two tickets for the $588 million Powerball lottery were sold Wednesday night…one in Missouri and one in Arizona. There is a hidden code in your Powerball ticket. If you still have one handy, grab it and I’ll tell you how to read your losing Powerball ticket. The First number is the number of car payments you still have to make. The second number is the number of years you’ll have to keep working at that job you despise. Third number is the number of major life mistakes you’ve made that led to a near-impossible Lotto win being your only hope for a debt-free existence…or a comfy retirement. Fourth number is how many dollars you have in your checking account. Fifth number is how many times you stood in front of the bathroom mirror rehearsing the ways you were going to tell your co-workers and boss to kiss your ass. And the sixth number is the number of times you will re-check the ticket before accepting that you had not a chance in hell of winning. (I stole that off of Facebook.)

The Nation II: The only other story worth mentioning here in national news is the death of Zig Ziglar. Zig died Wednesday in Dallas from complications of pneumonia. He was 86. Ziglar was the undisputed Emperor of all motivational speakers. He filled auditoriums where ever he spoke. His career spanned five decades, and Zig was…and still is…greatly beloved by those like me who are personal development junkies. His most famous quote is, “You can get anything in life you want if you’ll just help enough other people get what THEY want.” Rest well, Mister Ziglar. You’ve earned it.

International I: A tectonic economic shift occurred in Phnom Penh, Cambodia during the week of November 16th to 20th, and America still does not know about it. The 20th ASEAN Summit of 2012 brought together thirteen nations that represent half of the world’s population. Our Dearly Beloved Leader Barry showed up at the conference with his bag 0’tricks, and was politely tolerated until he left, as is the Asian way. America has little to offer the world at this point, and Obama’s proposals for American participation in Asia were shunned entirely. The world is lining up with China, and the nations of the developing world are looking to China for economic leadership…and finding it. China is leading the BRICS nations in an effort to replace the US Dollar as world reserve currency. Remember that China is the world’s largest producer of gold and silver, and China does not disclose much of their mining output. China also is not selling gold outside its own borders. So their lead on the world in gold production is far greater than anyone but the Chinese know. China has been a net seller of US Treasuries over the past year, not adding any more bonds to their holdings, but quietly selling them. And curiously, Japan has been the biggest foreign buyer of US bonds lately. Just goes to show you. Japan’s economy imploded from too much debt about 20 years ago and has not fully recovered. And now they are adding on more American debt instruments? Isn’t this the nation that just had a giant earthquake and tsunami that destroyed much of their nuclear power generating infrastructure? Japan should be plowing all its Yen into its own nation, not helping prop up Washington. Japan would not be buying all this debt unless it perceived some benefit from it. Don’t you wonder what DC has promised the Japanese government? These things have a way of leaking out. Stay tuned.

Yesterday’s DumpDC posting was all about this. Scroll down and make sure you read the article entitled, “The Asian Pivot Already Happened.”

Business I: This week’s Reuters Online has a story about entrepreneurs and “Lean Startup.” That term defines a web businessman starting with little or no capital investment. Another term I’ve seen is “Ultralight Startup.” Google that term to learn more. But if you have never done an online business, what do you do? If you ever dreamed of owning a small business, the timing for starting one could not be better. Your choice of which business to start is more important than any other consideration. Let me show you our business at: www.PortableOnlineBusiness.com

Here is tonight’s commercial message. Anybody read the Tim Ferriss book, The Four Hour Workweek? The subtitle is ”Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join The New Rich.” Ever heard a sexier title…a more irresistible tease? Who wouldn’t want a four hour work week? But I have something that is a variation on that. Maybe I’m not as good as Tim, or perhaps I have different talents and abilities than he has. But my system works just GREAT!

Let me offer to you the joys of 7 Hour Wealth! At 7 Hour Wealth, our sub-title is “Live How You Want To Live, Live Where You Want To Live, And Make Money Doing It!”

We still LOVE the DEAL concept that Tim Ferriss teaches. DEAL is an acrostic for a process of creating time freedom, which is what we are all about:

D – Definition: You must define how you want your life to operate before you can have it.
E – Elimination: We teach you how to get rid of time gobbling activity in favor of time spent that is rich in results.
A – Automation: being to outsource the stuff you know best to others, thereby freeing up your time while still maintaining control of the process.
L – Liberation: this is about living the success you defined at the beginning. And this level of success allows for the ultimate luxury…mobility and the freedom to live by your own rules, not someone else’s rules.

Sound tempting?

Economy I: The number of actual initial unemployment claims filed under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 357,015 in the week ending November 17th. This is a whopping decrease of 46,541 over the previous week and is attributable to Holiday merchants hiring. Curiously, the Labor Department NEVER reports the number of claimants that reached the end of their benefits and fell out of the system. But the story is the number. Another 357,000 people just like you filed new jobless claims last week. Just last week. And corporations all across America will shed jobs in the final weeks of 2012 in an attempt to show greater profitability at the end of the 4th quarter. It happens every year.

And I’ll say it again. Think about all those jobs said to have been “created” by the Obama Administration, or promised by schmucks like Mitt Romney. First…government does not create jobs, either in the public sector or the private sector. Jobs are created by capital, not by taxation. Capital is investment; taxation is theft with the implied threat of death. All jobs are not created equal. If you create two jobs that pay $10 an hour in the low-paying service sector to replace the high-paying engineering job in manufacturing that paid $50 an hour, you can truthfully say you created more jobs than you lost. But the economic impact is not the same. This is the dirty little secret of the politician and job creation. And the only reason they can get away with this over and over is that the American people don’t know the difference and don’t know the numbers behind the headlines.

In Sports: Big rivalry in the NFL between the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons got decided in Atlanta’s favor Thursday night with a 23-13 win. That leaves the Falcons with the best record in the NFL at 11-1, and the Saints effectively out of any hopes of getting to the playoffs. Playoffs? Playoffs? Jim Mora.

In Entertainment: The Rolling Stones are beginning their 50th Anniversary Tour with a show in London on Sunday night, then on to three more gigs in America…in the New York area. Can you imagine these old coots, all nearly 70 years old, still playing kick-ass rock and roll? Jagger was born in 1943…do the math. And what Vegas bookie would have even taken a bet on whether Keith Richards would even be alive in 2012? But here they are, doing four more concerts. And their concerts will be over two hours long, with nearly two dozen songs performed. But only four concerts…they’re old wankers. Ancient tossers.

Finally, in Entertainment: JRR Tolkien’s epic book The Hobbit has been lovingly turned into a three-movie series by Peter Jackson, the producer that brought us the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Hobbit One will be in theaters on December 14th. You must see this film.

That’s all for tonight. Thanks for watching. I am Russell D. Longcore. For all of us here at Dump D C: Good night and good luck.

Here Is How To Secede From The Union

November 28, 2012

Turn Your Smart Phone Into An ATM!!! Go to: INSTANT ACCESS!!

By Russell D. Longcore

(Editor’s note: This is an update of an article I wrote in 2010. I’ve learned some more things about secession since then.)

With all the furor in the Main Stream Media over the last couple weeks regarding those secession petitions lodged at the White House website, I think this article may be of service to those who love America but hate Washington.

A reader recently pointed out to me that I’ve provided most of the possible reasons why any state should secede at DumpDC. But she said I haven’t given a step-by-step procedure on how secession should work. I started this process in my article entitled Secession The Hope For Humanity, but I’m fleshing it out here. This is not complete by any stretch of the imagination. But it’s a place to start a lively dialogue about the steps to secession.

You may think that this article is too simplistic, and omits important issues. Perhaps. But I submit that if secession is not made so simple that a child can understand it, it will not happen in your state. Its logic has to be made so unassailable that only a fool would resist it.

So, here it is, my friends:

How To Secede From The United States of America

1. Philosophy

Each individual must come to his or her own conclusion that secession is the only way to regain liberty, and each state must make its secession decision independent of any other state.

2. Initiation

Secession should be solemnly deliberated by the elected representatives and the state citizens. Secession should be initiated at the moment that any state reaches the point at which it will no longer accept the despotic tyranny and laws coming from the US Federal Government in Washington, DC. Or, secession should be initiated upon a collapse of the Dollar, or the declaration of martial law by Washington DC in the event of social upheaval.

There is no written, formal method for initiating and completing an act of secession. If history can be our guide, we see that the states of 1860 completed their secessions by specially-elected conventions or by referendum. But the secession could also be initiated by a Governor and the State Legislature in assembly.

It would be excellent if a seated Governor would lead his state into secession. The easiest way for a state to secede would be for the State Legislature to draft a Declaration of Secession document and an Ordinance of Secession document. Then the Legislature should take a roll call vote and pass a Joint Resolution of Secession in legislature assembled, and have the Governor sign the Resolution instantly upon its passage. This process should be done on live TV, with all proceedings televised and recorded. Allowing the world to view this process in non-edited real time would be one of the most exciting and historic TV broadcasts ever made. The eyes of the world would be fixed on the TV feed and little else would be reported or discussed on its programming. Hell, run commercials and make some money for the state. Why should the networks get this historic event for free?

If the Legislature and Governor refused to support secession, a petition initiative could garner enough signatures of registered voters to force a referendum. Each state has statutes about petition initiatives for referenda. The Texas Nationalist Movement is doing a petition initiative right now, with the intent of presenting the petitions to the Legislature on day one of the 2013 legislative session. Follow the law in your state.

If there was a statewide referendum on secession it could be a simply worded ballot question like: “Shall the citizens of the State of XXXX repeal the 1788 ratification of the Constitution of the United States of America by the State of XXXX, and shall the citizens of the State of XXXX resume all the rights and powers granted under said Constitution?” A simple “Yes” or “No” vote will suffice.

If that’s too flowery for you, here’s an even simpler question: “Shall the citizens of the State of XXXX secede from the United States of America?” A “Yes” or “No” vote will suffice.

A simple majority of votes would pass the referendum.

The referendum should only be done with paper ballots that will be counted by hand, no machines, no electronic voting. Further, the referendum should not be scheduled for only one single day, but over at least three days, preferably a weekend…to facilitate the greatest possible participation by registered voters. Polling places should be open from 6:00 am to 12:00 midnight on voting days. Finally, a photo ID should be required as verification of identity for eligibility to vote. This ain’t the American way of widespread voter fraud…this is the state’s rights secession way. It’s also my article, and I can write the rules any way I choose.

Another method of moving secession along in your state might be to organize on a county-by-county basis. The County Commission could either call for a countywide referendum on the question of secession, or could nominate a delegate to participate in a Secession Convention.

3. Secession Convention

Each state’s Secession Convention, formed to contemplate, design and complete the process of secession, should draft a Declaration of Secession.

Many of the seceding states of 1860 wrote and ratified a Declaration of Secession, also known as a “Declaration of Causes.” Each Declaration enumerated that particular state’s reasons for secession, in like manner to the 1776 Declaration of Independence sent to King George by the Colonists.

Once the Declaration of Secession is prepared, the Chair of the Secession Convention or the Governor should see that signed original copies of the document are delivered to the Governors of all of the States that comprise the United States of America. The delivery of each Ordinance Of Secession to each Governor would make good TV.

As a mere gesture of courtesy and wry wit, copies of the Declaration of Secession should be sent by Federal Express (just for the irony) to the President of the United States, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, and the President of the Senate. You must remember that states do not have to ask permission of Washington to secede. Their compact, the US Constitution, is not between DC and the states. The Constitution is between the several States.

4. Ordinance of Secession.

Then the seceding states must prepare an Ordinance of Secession. Here below is the simple, succinct wording of the South Carolina Ordinance of Secession of 1860:

AN ORDINANCE to dissolve the union between the State of South Carolina and other States united with her under the compact entitled “The Constitution of the United States of America.”

We, the people of the State of South Carolina, in convention assembled do declare and ordain, and it is hereby declared and ordained, That the ordinance adopted by us in convention on the twenty-third day of May, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-eight, whereby the Constitution of the United States of America was ratified, and also all acts and parts of acts of the General Assembly of this State ratifying amendments of the said Constitution, are hereby repealed; and that the union now subsisting between South Carolina and other States, under the name of the “United States of America,” is hereby dissolved.

Done at Charleston the twentieth day of December, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty.

That is the sum total of all the words necessary to complete the secession.

Once the Ordinance of Secession is prepared (televised live), the Chair of the Secession Convention or the Governor should see that signed original copies of the document are delivered to the Governors of all of the States that comprise the United States of America. The delivery of each Ordinance Of Secession to each Governor would make good TV also.

As a mere gesture of courtesy and wry wit, copies of the Ordinance of Secession should be sent by Federal Express (just for the irony) to the President of the United States, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, and the President of the Senate. You must remember that states do not have to ask permission of Washington to secede. Their compact, the US Constitution, is not between DC and the states. The Constitution is between the several States.

That is the process of secession from the United States of America. That was the easy part. Then the REAL WORK begins.

The first thing the new sovereign state should do is to form a Constitutional Convention, and create a new government. See how I would do it at The New Corporate Model of Governance.

Questions? Do I see questions?

Question: What if Washington files a Federal lawsuit or injunction in Federal Court to stop the state from seceding?
Answer:Once the state formally secedes, it is no longer subject to US Federal Court jurisdiction, is it? Is it not a sovereign nation after secession, just like any other nation of the world? So, the seceding state could answer any legal maneuver by rejecting the jurisdiction of the US Federal Courts. Remember, Washington doesn’t OWN your state. Washington was formed by the states to be an errand-boy for the states. Who runs who?

Question: What if Washington invades our state with military forces?
Answer: That is the reason that your state needs a well-trained state militia. And when I say “well-trained,” I do not mean trained to fight on a 3rd Generation battlefield (like WWII or Vietnam). I mean a militia trained to fight with guerilla warfare (4th Generation) tactics, with a heavy emphasis on the tactics of General Sun Tzu, author of The Art of War.

Question: What will we do for money?
Answer: The state must make sure that the free market determines what is money in the new nation. Any state that creates a new national money built upon the same system of debt, fractional reserve banking and fiat paper money is a state created by the same sociopathic criminals that ran the Federal Government, and perhaps even running your state government. The state/nation’s new Charter must prohibit a central bank and fractional reserve banking. The only thing that the national Charter should say about money is that (a) coins must show the weight and fineness, and that (b) the penalty for issuing counterfeit money or altering money is death.

Secession is little more than breaking up with your girlfriend or divorcing your spouse. It’s a lot like being a card player in a big card game, then folding your cards, cashing in your chips and leaving the game.

Isn’t the process of secession much like writing this short note to end a relationship?

Dear Washington: It’s over. We’re leaving. We ain’t asking your permission to leave. We ain’t asking for a legal divorce. We’re just ending this relationship right here and now. We’re rescinding the authority we gave you in the year we ratified the compact. Leave us alone. Goodbye.

In conclusion, try to envision yourself and your family in a new nation created by secession. All the people you meet are excited and breathless in their anticipation of the future. The general opinion of the populace is pure unbridled optimism. The new nation’s economy is booming, the money is backed by gold and silver, and there is no inflation. “Now Hiring” signs are in all the shop windows. The newspaper’s “Help Wanted” ads are packed full. People seeking liberty are POURING over the American border to settle in the new nation. Prices for goods and services are low, and the stores are loaded with goods. Manufacturers are streaming into the new nation to take advantage of the rare pro-business atmosphere. Wages are climbing steadily in manufacturing jobs as companies compete for the best and brightest for their employees. New businesses are being created at a fever pace. Residential and commercial construction is at a high level to meet the demand of the new residents.

All because one state recognized this historic opportunity and realized the dream of liberty through the process of state secession.

Secession is the hope for humanity. Who will be first?

Welcome to Flash Editorials for November 23, 2012. I am Russell D. Longcore, owner and editor of DumpDC. Flash Editorials is presented by w w w dot Dump D C dot com. DumpDC is the world leader in secessionist thought. We show the world that secession is the only hope for personal liberty and property rights on the planet.

This was the week of Turkey Day, so not much happening in America except overeating. But before we go to the news, let’s talk about something called a ‘Black Swan event.” A Black Swan event was the subject of a book by Nassim Taleb entitled ”The Black Swan.” A black swan even is an event that is a surprise to the observer, nearly impossible to predict, has a major effect, and is usually only understood in hindsight. Got the concept? Now think about the turkey that adorned your Thanksgiving table. He recently had a Black Swan event. From his earliest consciousness, he was fed plentifully every day. Based upon his life experience, there was no reason for him to think that this lifestyle would not continue. Abruptly he was slaughtered. For the turkey, or for the pig that provided you your ham, there was no hindsight…no understanding of the event.

This Is A Black Swan Event.

As Soren Kierkegaard said, “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to accept what is true.” Don’t allow secession to be a Black Swan event in your life.

Now, to the news.

The Nation I: I had an epiphany this week. I figured out why Washington and the Federal Reserve are continuing with Quantitative Easing III. Chairman Bernanke said it was to help the fragile economy. But that was only the latest lie. The Fed could not care less about the economy. The Fed is buying US Treasuries and dropping that so-called liquidity into the US Banking sector. But banking cannot loan that money to business at market interest rates. So, what does the banker do? He loans his money back to the Fed for a safe return, no market risk. But this financial circle jerk protects WASHINGTON from higher interest rates on its own debt. If DC had to start paying anything north of 4%, it would melt DC down entirely. All taxation and all borrowed money would have to go to service the debt. No money for any government program, including Social Security and Medicare. DC is just covering their own asses and kicking the can down the road just a little farther. They will deal with the future crash when it happens…just not today.

The Nation II: Is it just me, or have any of you noticed that changing the party in power NEVER changes policy? Could it be that the two parties are essentially one party? It would be one thing if one party stood for strict Constitutionality, and the other party rejected strict Constitutionality. But BOTH parties totally ignore that tattered old document and do whatever the hell they choose. Actually, the truth is that they do what they are TOLD.

Now that the election is over, President Stepin Fetchit and his Congressional Homeboy Posse are now getting the Mainstream Media worked up over the latest meme, which is the phrase “The Fiscal Cliff.” Now… a moment. Now, for you friends out there that don’t know who Stepin Fetchit was…here’s a little history. Back in the 1920s and 30s an black actor named Lincoln Perry played a character named Stepin Fetchit that was very popular in movies. The name was a play on words…the words that a slaveowner would say to his slave… “I need my umbrella. Step and Fetch it.”

Stepin Fetchit and Will Rogers

This character was described as “the laziest man in the world.” The name Stepin Fetchit became an automatic label for a lazy, subservient, bumbling, dimwitted, good-for-nothing black man. So now you know who Stepin Fetchit was. And the reason I use that term today is that Mister Obama is Stepin Fetchit for the oligarchy that runs America. But don’t get the idea that Barry is the first. All of the presidents since Reconstruction have been Stepin Fetchit for the oligarchy. He’s just the latest. And Congress is filled with Stepin Fetchits, and that ain’t about their skin color.

But I digress.

This topic of the Fiscal Cliff was not discussed before the election, and it is almost as if the White House Press Secretary issued talking points in the briefing room for the reporters to carry back to their offices and implement. But now that the so-called Sabbath Gasbags (thanks Rachel Maddow) have done their duty and opened up the topic, the Republicans, starting with House Majority Leader John Boner, are lining up to make more compromises on keeping the spending going and raising your taxes. Both sides would get what they want if they would just shut the hell up and live with the deal they made in 2011. The Democrats would get huge cuts in military spending, and the Republicans would get automatic cuts in domestic spending. But BOTH SIDES cannot bear the thought of allowing the other side even the smallest victory. And even right after an election, Washington cannot abide the reality of big spending cuts sending the American economy into another tailspin. The scary part of this story is that the power elite talking about this so-called Fiscal Cliff doesn’t reveal how bad things are, and will help immunize DC from blame when the shit hits the fan. You can be certain that Washington will blame free enterprise, capitalism and the wealthy for the economic collapse that is at the bottom of that Fiscal Cliff.

International I: This week I saw news reports and alleged photos that were supposed to prove that Iran (who else) was helping Venezuela build intercontinental ballistic missile silos in Venezuela. When US State Department reps were asked about the story, they said they could not vouch for these reports. I think these reports are planted stories…probably by the CIA. Think about it. Who are DC’s two biggest thorns in the flesh? Iran and Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. Doesn’t anybody else think it’s just too convenient that these two countries are supposed to be in cahoots on ICBMs? But whether the story is true or not…know what would make the story go away? Washington minding its own business and not pissing on all the other countries of the world and telling them it’s raining…that could make our enemies at least not wish us harm. But what do I know?

Business I: I am Founder of a private, secret, members-only Twitter group. We are limiting our membership to just 20 members, 5 are already in. If you have a Twitter following larger than 10,000, my group will give you exposure to over 200,000 tweets each day FOR FREE. If you want this kind of exposure for your Tweets, contact me on Twitter @russlongcore. Follow me, then leave me a direct message. We require members to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement.

Here is tonight’s commercial message. Would you like to learn how you can make all your social networking PAY YOU! Let me introduce you to a new company named Solavei. Solavei just launched nationwide on September 21, 2012. They have created a company that will allow YOU to refer your friends and relatives and make money by doing it. You don’t have to sell anything. Simply post messages and links and let your friends, family and acquaintances look for themselves. If they like what they see and make a purchase, you get paid!!

Solavei’s first Value Proposition is this: Unlimited talk, text and data on a 4G nationwide network for $49.00 per month. No Contract. No Credit Checks. No Deposits. You can bring your phone and phone number with you. And enrolling takes about 5-6 minutes online. I saved $46 a month by switching! That’s $552 a year and I’m getting more that I got with ATT.

Think about this: Cell phone service is a life-essential service that nearly every person from age 10 to age 100 uses every day. And mobile phone users will not voluntarily give up their phone service. What would they do? Get a land line? That requires credit checks and deposits. So phone bills…like utility bills…will get paid every month even if other expenses get cut or eliminated altogether. That makes the business recession-proof.

Solavei’s business model is this: Refer people you know to Solavei. When those people sign up like you did, you will receive monthly commissions as long as those new customers remain Solavei customers. Solavei even has a plan whereby members can have their mobile phone service FOR FREE. How many people getting free phone service are going to switch to another carrier? NONE! No other phone provider can beat FREE, can they?

To learn more, go to http://www.DumpDC.com and look for this Flash Editorial article. Scroll down to the Solavei video, it’s only six minutes long. Watch it, then sign up TODAY!!

What is Solavei? from Solavei on Vimeo.

Economy I: The number of actual initial unemployment claims filed under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 397,691 in the week ending November 17th. This is a whopping decrease of 80,872 over the previous week and is attributable to Hurricane Sandy hitting the Northeast. The previous week jumped up by over 100,000 and dropped by 80,000 a week later. But the story is the number. Another 397,000 people just like you filed new jobless claims just last week. Just last week.

And about all those jobs said to have been created by the Obama Administration, or promised by schmucks like Mitt Romney. All jobs are not created equal. If you create two jobs that pay $10 an hour in the low-paying service sector to replace the high-paying engineering job in manufacturing that paid $50 an hour, you can truthfully say you created more jobs than you lost. But the economic output is not the same. This is the dirty little secret of the politician and job creation. And the only reason they can get away with this over and over is that the American people don’t know the difference and don’t know the numbers behind the headlines.

In Sports: The Macho Man took his final shot to the head last Tuesday. Famous Puerto Rican Boxer Hector “Macho Man” Camacho was sitting in a car outside a bar in San Juan Tuesday night when a gunman shot him in the head. Doctors have declared Camacho clinically brain dead. The other occupant of the car was also shot and killed. Camacho had a professional boxing career record of 79-6-3. He had won the world titles in the Super Lightweight, Lightweight and Junior Welterweight divisions. Camacho had drug abuse issues throughout his life, and police found cocaine in the car where he was murdered.

Finally, in Entertainment: I watched the movie “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” last night with The Redhead. British retirees travel to Jaipur India where they all stay in a fixer-upper hotel. There is no violence. There is no sex. There is no filthy dialogue. There is just humanity and love gently shown. Please rent this movie. There are a lot of spiritual themes in the movie that have nothing to do with any one religion. Carl Jung said, “You must give up the life you’ve planned for the life that is waiting for you.” This movie is all about that. See it.

That’s all for tonight. Thanks for watching. I am Russell D. Longcore. For all of us here at Dump D C: Good night and good luck.

By Russell D. Longcore

Welcome to Flash Editorials for November 16, 2012. I am Russell D. Longcore, owner and editor of DumpDC. Flash Editorials is presented by w w w dot Dump D C dot com. DumpDC is the world leader in secessionist thought. We show the world that secession is the only hope for personal liberty and property rights on the planet.

Some of the stuff I’ve seen happen this week…you can’t make up. Weeellll, that’s actually not true. Fiction writers fill novels with this kind of crazy stuff all the time. You just don’t usually see these stupid human tricks play out in real life. As the Chinese saying goes…“May you live in interesting times.” Let’s go to the news.

The Nation I: This week, some resourceful folks planted a bunch of secession petitions in the WhiteHouse.org website, and people from all over the nation began electronically signing them. As of today, there are petitions filed for all 50 states, and there have been over 700,000 digital signatures filed. I wrote an article this week in which I stated that the petitions are entirely incorrect, and that this is not the way a state secedes…by begging the current administration for permission to leave the Union. A few people left comments here at DumpDC fussing at me for not being wildly in favor of the petitions. So here is my latest comment. In the public relations game, even when they are talking ugly about you, they are still talking about you. I am glad that the secession petitions raised awareness about secession here in America. I am glad that Sean Hannity interviewed TNM president Daniel Miller on Hannity’s show Tuesday night. The more that America hears the word “secession,” the more comfortable they will be with it. And because America heard about it on TV, that somehow lends credibility to the story and the concept. Secession is a long way from reality. No governor or state house in America will take up this topic in a serious manner until AFTER the economic collapse. Then they will deal with it out of self-preservation.

The Nation II: The CIA/Benghazi/Petraeus story got legs. Lots of legs. Girls all over the place. Two generals are now in trouble along with two Florida military brass groupies (who knew that generals had groupies?). Paula Broadwell, Petraeus’ principal squeeze, has been found to have classified data on her computer, although the source of the data has not yet been revealed. Most of us only know about the CIA from what THEY tell us about themselves, or what we see on fictional TV shows or movies like The Bourne Trilogy. So America in its ignorance THINKS that our intelligence community is the best in the world. But that is just public relations. Our spies seem to be bumbling idiots that can’t run an “op” (operation) right, even if it means their own skin. And when the guys at the top are the biggest security risks of all, you know that shyt rolls downhill into the organization. I don’t want to demean all the operators in the CIA. There are career guys and gals that care deeply about doing their jobs right. But don’t you forget this…Afghanistan’s poppy crop had been all but obliterated by the Taliban. Now the Afghanis supply 90% of the world’s heroin market. Who is running that op? The CIA. Why? One reason…off-budget cash cow that funds all kinds of CIA shenanigans. And the guys at the top are always political appointees who couldn’t spell “intelligence” before they got their cushy jobs. Case in point…Leon Panetta. Are you kidding? This guy never even sat on a House Intelligence committee when he was a Congressman. Then all of a sudden, he is qualified to be head of the CIA? Based on what? And now the guy is the Secretary of Defense? Based on what? The fact that he was a second lieutenant in the Army in 1964? Pulleeeze. The CIA is broken, and won’t be fixed by DC. It will be fascinating to see what trained monkey that Obama will nominate as the next CIA Director.

International I: Oil giant BP (British Petroleum) has agreed to pay the largest CRIMINAL penalty in the history of the world because of its responsibility for the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. BP is going to plead guilty to obstruction of justice for lying to Congress about how much oil was spewing into the Gulf waters. The amount of the fine is $4.5 Billion. Up to now, the largest corporate criminal penalty ever paid was paid by drugmaker Pfizer in the amount of $1.2 Billion. But don’t worry about BP, though. They made a net profit of $5.5 Billion….in the third quarter of this year.

Business I: I am Founder of a private, secret, members-only Twitter group. We are limiting our membership to just 20 members, 5 are already in. If you have a Twitter following larger than 10,000, my group will give you exposure to over 200,000 tweets each day FOR FREE. If you want this kind of exposure for your Tweets, contact me on Twitter @russlongcore. Follow me, then leave me a direct message. We require members to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement.

Business II: A couple weeks back, I learned about a new business concept called “Social Commerce.” We all know about Social Networking and how big it has become. The use of websites like Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, LinkedIn, Pinterest and others has exploded in just a few short years. Remember, Facebook launched in 2004. So in eight years, it has become the giant it is now, with over 1 billion worldwide members.

“Social Commerce” is simply gaining access to the vast numbers of eyes looking at Social Networks for business purposes. Now, the traditional method of gaining that access is advertising. But advertising on social networks is not working out as well as expected. Facebook thought they were going to make a killing selling ads to business who wanted access to all those eyes. But Facebook’s stock price has gone from its IPO high of $38 to today’s price around $22.

Turns out that social network users don’t like ads any more than they do on TV. I want to see a show of hands. How many of you record TV shows…even sports events…to view later? And how many of you fast forward through the commercials? That’s what I thought. You ALL DO. So, how can a business take advantage of Social Networking?

Referrals. Networking. Word Of Mouth advertising…the most powerful and effective form of advertising in existence. And Word of Mouth advertising costs nothing. Think about this. You went to a movie you liked and you recommended it to friends. You ate a great meal at a restaurant and told your friends. That is Word Of Mouth advertising. But let me ask you this…did the theater or restaurant pay you any commission when your friends spent money there? Of Course Not!!

So how can you harness the power of Word Of Mouth advertising for your business? An even better question is…How can I start a business using Social Networking and turn in into Social Commerce?

That question leads me into tonight’s commercial message. Would you like to learn how you can make all your social networking PAY YOU! Let me introduce you to a new company named Solavei. Solavei just launched nationwide on September 21, 2012. They have created a company that will allow YOU to refer your friends and relatives and make money by doing it. You don’t have to sell anything. Simply post messages and links and let your friends family and acquaintances look for themselves. If they like what they see and make a purchase, you get paid!!

Solavei’s first Value Proposition is this: Unlimited talk, text and data on a 4G nationwide network for $49.00 per month. No Contract. No Credit Checks. No Deposits. You can bring your phone and phone number with you. And enrolling takes about 5-6 minutes online. I saved $46 a month by switching! That’s $552 a year and I’m getting more that I got with ATT.

Think about this: Cell phone service is a life-essential service that nearly every person from age 10 to age 100 has. And mobile phone users will not voluntarily give up their phone service. What would they do? Get a land line? That requires credit checks and deposits. So phone bills…like utility bills…will get paid every month even if other expenses get cut or eliminated altogether. That makes the business recession-proof.

Solavei’s business model is this: Refer people you know to Solavei. When those people sign up like you did, you will receive monthly commissions as long as those new customers remain Solavei customers. Solavei even has a plan whereby members can have their mobile phone service FOR FREE. How many people getting free phone service are going to switch to another carrier? NONE! No other phone provider can beat FREE, can they?

To learn more, go to http://www.DumpDC.com and look for this Flash Editorial article. Scroll down to the Solavei video, it’s only six minutes long. Watch it, then sign up TODAY!!

What is Solavei? from Solavei on Vimeo.

Economy I: The number of actual initial unemployment claims filed under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 466,348 in the week ending November 10th. This is a whopping increase of 104,548 over the previous week and is attributable to Hurricane Sandy hitting the Northeast. Yet when I heard a news report of this story on Fox Business this morning at 8:40 am…just ten minutes after the Labor Department released their numbers…Fox reported the cooked numbers of the “4-week moving average” of “only” 383,750 as a positive trend for the economy. You may get tired of seeing this story every week, but every week the Labor Department LIES TO AMERICA. Friends, this week’s figures increased by over 100,000 in a single WEEK! That is a hundred thousand people MORE than the usual 380,000 WEEKLY NEW CLAIMS! If any economic stories concern you, this slow-moving train wreck should bother you a lot. When is YOUR JOB going to be threatened? Do you have a Plan B just in case?

In Sports: The Atlanta Falcons lost to the Saints last Sunday so their record is now 7-1. Still pretty great. Just 3-4 years ago, the Falcons led the NFL in rushing yards gained. This year, they don’t seem to be able to move the ball on the ground. Can’t win games without a ground game. Time will tell. Other than that, nothing much to talk about in Sports this week.

Sports Part II: Anytime you get a chance to watch college football, watch the SEC games. The SEC is the number one college conference for rookie NFL players. And any SEC team can beat any other SEC team on any given Saturday. Top to bottom, the SEC is the best college football in America.

Finally, in Entertainment: Actor Channing Tatum has been named “Sexiest Man Alive 2012 ” by People Magazine. First thing I did when learning this is look at Wikipedia about the guy. I figured no way that Channing Tatum is his real name…sounds made up. My bad. It’s just a very Southern name. He’s a Mississippi boy and his daddy’s name is Glenn Tatum. But have you seen this kid? He’s mighty pretty. Hope he doesn’t get all paunchy and rotund like me later in life. I was pretty once, too. See? That’s me in my wrestling pose as a high school senior. Cute, huh?

That’s all for tonight. Thanks for watching. I am Russell D. Longcore. For all of us here at DumpDC: Good night and good luck.

A Surrender of Sorts

November 5, 2012

Relaxing in the Handbasket

By Fred Reed

We are doomed, saith the preacher, and should accommodate ourselves to it. In times of growing governmental power, protestation at some point becomes futile. Little is served by standing in front of a charging Mongol army and shouting, “No! You should reconsider!

Perhaps some other course would be advisable. Let’s parley….”
Complaint is useless. It is too late. It booteth not. We are done. The Mongols ride. America comes apart at the seams. The country turns into something altogether new, new for America.

In high school, I read Shirer, first Berlin Diary and then The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. I had little idea what I was reading. A naval base in rural Virginia is not a hotbed of historical understanding, or any understanding. I knew nothing of Weimar or the Spartacists or the Treaty of Versailles. Still, I dimly grasped that a theretofore civilized country with great rapidity turned into something horrible. It was not an evolutionary change, like the Industrial Revolution. Brahms to Goebbels in a decade.

Something alike happens in America, and one wonders—I wonder, anyway—how can this be? In little more than a decade, the Constitution has died, the economy welters in irreversible decline, we have perpetual war, all power lies in the hands of the executive, the police are supreme, and a surveillance beyond Orwell’s imaginings falls into place.

These observations are now commonplace. It is almost boring to read of them—yet they proceed apace. Where we go, we go fast. Already against the authorities there is no recourse. Should you talk back to the police, you will spend the night in jail.

I sometimes wonder whether there is not some malign force in play, some diabolical miasma with a sense of humor that, having brought the Soviet Union down, amuses itself by turning the United States into the same thing. Or maybe it is just that if any state that can become totalitarian, it will.

Or maybe it was just a chance simultaneity of enabling events.

Communism died in China and thus ceased to protect America from the withering competition of a populous, intelligent, and industrious race. The internet and easy transportation allowed American companies to abandon ship and head for cheaper climes. They did. Huge countries unexpectedly began a meteoric rise (if meteors rise), chiefly the BRICs. Big once-American corporations became free-floating transnational beings, loyal only to themselves. Open an apparently American laptop and you find that the screen and memory come from Korea, the hard drive from Malaya, the CPU from an Intel lab in Ireland, the whole thing assembled in Taiwan. America cannot stanch the bleeding.

Corporations rule the country, and go whither they will.

Have you ever thrown a stick for a dog, which loves to chase it but, when he comes back with it, cannot bring himself to give it to you to throw again, although that is what he wants? The United States cannot let go of its empire. It fights war after war, constantly losing, bleeding money it doesn’t have, because—because it can’t let go. The military itself, an upgraded WWII force, badly unsuited to modern war, cannot let go of its glorious carriers and obsolescent combat aircraft. Governments too can suffer from arteriosclerosis.

And now the Pentagon growls fiercely at China, like an aging terrier at a Rottweiler pup. The world changes. Minds do not. Some minds do not.

Domestically, the storm likewise approaches. Desperation encourages desperate measures, a hard line, and invites the notorious Man on a Horse.

Economically, the country has trapped itself. It is bankrupt in all but admission, but it cannot spend more prudently. If it cuts welfare in the cities, riots will ensure and elections will be lost. If it cuts the bloated federal bureaucracy, a form of welfare, the dismissed will add to an already dangerously high number of the unemployed. And elections will be lost.

Cut the military? It and its parasitic industries are so large, so deeply embedded in the fabric of the country, so rife with influential people with families to feed, that reductions are not possible. The suggestion of even minor and usually fraudulent cuts is greeted by predictions of dire but unspecified consequences. Minor cuts are not what are needed.

The dog cannot let go.

It is said that democracy depends on an informed public. This is to say that democracy is impossible. In the American case, blank ignorance of anything outside the borders leaves people easily manipulated. The genius of the American political system is that it is not necessary to suppress inconvenient information, but only to keep it off television. So few people will encounter it as not to matter.

Giving people the choice between Candidate A and Candidate A, neither of whom addresses the real problems of the nation, is to grant them the influence they would have had in the Habsburg Empire.

But it keeps them quiet.

It would be interesting to ask the general public: “Which of the following Arab countries is suspected of trying to develop nuclear weapons? (1) Turkey (2) Pakistan (3) Iran (4) Afghanistan (5) None of the above.”

Nonsense is ever a firm basis for politics. The American public believes itself to be free, to have a spirit of rugged individualism, to live in a democracy admired by the world. In fact Americans are not particularly free and becoming less so by the minute, are not individualists but herd consumers formed by a controlled press, and do not live in a democracy.

And totalitarianism comes. This is no longer the assertion of those dropped on their heads as children. Daily we read of more weaponry for the police, more surveillance authorized by courts, more unlegislated powers for Homeland Security. Currency controls fall into place to prevent people from fleeing the country with their assets.

In this direction, I think, lies the future. It is perfectly possible to store every email sent, every purchase made except by cash, every withdrawal of cash; to institute airport-style “security” for trains and buses; to monitor any conversation by telephone; automatically to track cell phones and read license plates and store it all. We are close. We are very close.

Protesting is pointless. No governmental mechanism prevents the headlong progress of things that would have sickened Thomas Jefferson. In the presidential debates neither Candidate A nor Candidate A has said, so far as I know, a word about the tightening watchfulness.

The only reasonable approach is to lie down and enjoy it. Which I shall do.

Flash Editorials November 2, 2012

November 1, 2012

By Russell D. Longcore

Welcome to Flash Editorials for November 2, 2012. I am Russell D. Longcore, owner and editor of DumpDC. Flash Editorials is presented by http://www.DumpDC.com. DumpDC is the world leader in secessionist thought. We show the world that secession is the only hope for personal liberty and property rights on the planet.

This is the first Flash Editorials I’ve done since May. My schedule changed and now I can go back to being a smart ass on video. Let’s go to the news!

The Nation I: The Gross Incompetence and Breath-taking Negligence of Barack Hussein Obama, otherwise known as the Libya Embassy Scandal. The Obama camp bitched about Mitt Romney “politicizing” the tragedy because in the early days of the attack, Romney made negative comments about Obama’s handling. Turns out, Romney was right. But what we have now learned is that Barry is the very person who politicized the murder of four Americans in Benghazi. Various reports have verified that the CIA and State Department apparachiks were watching the embassy in real time from a drone-mounted camera in the sky above the embassy. As the event unfolded, we have learned that there were military assets within ONE HOUR of Benghazi, including a battalion of Marines, Seal Teams and all. The military REQUESTED authority to make the rescue. And get this…the ONLY PERSON who could authorize the request for our military to cross an international border to rescue the Ambassador and the others was BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. An Admiral in the Mediterranean can’t do it. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta can’t do it. Joint Chiefs can’t do it. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton can’t do it. Only the President. So, what did the president do? Did he leave the situation with his National Security advisor Thomas Donilon? NO!! He dropped the situation into the lap of David Axelrod, his Senior Political Advisor…and he went to bed. You see, Barack had a big fundraiser in Las Vegas the next day, and he needed to be rested. And a few hours later, Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were brutally murdered by the Libyan gunmen. And this after Stevens had repeatedly requested more security for the Embassy and the requests were denied.

Barack Obama didn’t do anything illegal that I know of. He did not commit an impeachable offense. He just simply did not give a shit about four Americans in Libya getting murdered. Keeping his job and raising money was…and is…far more important to this tinpot tyrant than doing the right thing. And what would it have taken? A nod of his head? His signature on a form? A verbal order “GO?” But he could not be bothered. But let a storm blow up the East Coast where all those voters live, and you can see photos of Obama in the White House Situation Room making plans to rescue everybody in the East. Of course, you know that it is all bullshit. FEMA will work just like FEMA does. But all that will occur AFTER the election next Tuesday.

The Nation II: The election is next Tuesday. Don’t vote. For God’s sake, don’t vote. The voting process has been taken over entirely. Electronic voting machines are programmed regularly to miscount votes for one candidate or another. You CANNOT be certain that your vote will count for the candidate you vote for. And in a larger sense, when the people who are actually in power present you with two Presidential candidates that are nearly the same man, what does it matter which one you vote for? And think about this. Even if 100 million voters did NOT vote next week as a protest, there is NO minimum number of votes below which the election becomes illegitimate. So if a million people voted for Obama, and a million plus one voted for Romney, Romney would take office. So if your vote truly does not count…and it only gives legitimacy to an illegitimate system…if you vote, you are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

The Nation III: Hurricane Sandy was a Godsend for Barack Obama. Just before the storm hit the East Coast, the news was filled with the breaking stories about the Benghazi fiasco. It looked like Barry was going to have to eat that shit sandwich right up to election day. But Hurrah for Hurricane Sandy! Widespread devastation will help Obama look like a good guy instead of the dim-witted coward he is.

But let’s talk about Sandy for a moment or two. Hurricanes usually need warm sea water to gain strength. In late October, Weather Underground reports sea temps along the Eastern coast at less than 65 degrees. Hurricanes like sea temps above 75 degrees, and the temperature differential does make a big difference. Sandy was a big storm in the Caribbean where sea temps are still about 85 degrees. So you can see that if Sandy had come north in late August or early September, she may have been a Cat 3 hurricane when she made landfall. Sandy slowed to Tropical Storm status…because of the cool water…and made landfall at high tide in a full moon. So the water levels were spectacularly high. Some say the wall of water that came ashore was over 30 feet tall. And just like in New Orleans, Sandy flooded vast, densely populated areas with sea water, which is highly corrosive.

One of the biggest issues in Hurricane Katrina was if the wind damaged insured property first, followed by water damage from flood. It will be the same issue in the Northeast, mark my words. Insurance companies will deny hundreds of thousands of claims because of flood exclusions and then only pay small claims for a few shingles getting blown off. One of the upsides for coastal policyholders is that Sandy was not a named hurricane when she made landfall, so many policies with huge wind deductibles won’t trigger. Watch it happen and remember my words.

The final total of damages along the Eastern Seaboard will be many billions of dollars. But don’t worry. Washington has a printing press. They won’t run out of money. The insurance companies might…but not DC.

International I: Unemployment in the Eurozone rose in September to a record high of 11.6%, according to a report by the European Commission’s Eurostat agency. Spain has the highest numbers in the Eurozone, with a jobless rate of 25.8%, followed by Greece with 25.1%. On the other end of the spectrum…or perhaps I should say in the northern region of the Eurozone, Austria has a 4.4% jobless rate, and Luxembourg’s rate is 5.2%. Friends, it is only a matter of time until the Euro currency collapses…just like here in America. They can take us down, and the collapse of the Dollar will surely take down the world.

Business: Just last week, I learned about a new business concept called “Social Commerce.” We all know about Social Networking and how big it has become. The use of websites like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, LinkedIn, Pinterest and others has exploded in just a few short years. Remember, Facebook launched in 2004. So in eight years, it has become the giant it is now, with over 1 billion worldwide members.

Social Commerce is simply gaining access to the vast numbers of eyes looking at Social Networks for business purposes. Now, the traditional method of gaining that access is advertising. But advertising on social networks is not working out as well as expected. Facebook thought they were going to make a killing selling ads to business who wanted access to all those eyes. But Facebook’s stock price has gone from its IPO high of $38 to today’s price around $21.

Turns out that social network users don’t like ads any more than they do on TV. I want to see a show of hands. How many of you record TV shows…even sports events…to view later?

So how can you harness the power of Word Of Mouth advertising for your business? An even better question is…How can I start a business using Social Networking and turn in into Social Commerce?

The Solavei Vision

Solavei Vision from Solavei on Vimeo.

Economy I: The number of actual initial unemployment claims filed under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 342,702 in the week ending October 20th. But the Labor Department said that New Jersey and Washington DC did not submit their weekly numbers because of the storm. All day, I’ve heard the news readers only say that the national number was 9,000 less than last week. Any outrage that 342,000 people THIS WEEK file for unemployment…and that AT LEAST this amount of people PER WEEK have been filing for unemployment for THREE YEARS? Let’s see…350,000 times 24 months is 8,400,000. NEW. UNEMPLOYMENT. CLAIMS. And then the Obama Administration crows like a rooster that 114,000 jobs were created last MONTH…and that the unemployment rate is 7.8%. Let’s see…at least a million three new unemployment claims in September and 114,000 jobs created. Sure! The Obama Administration has this under control! He deserves a second term!

Sports: In the World Series, the San Francisco Giants mugged the Detroit Tigers in four straight games. Looks like the Ti-girls peaked in the playoffs because they swept the New York Yankees in four games. The Girls had no offense at all in the World Series. Cheer up, Detroit. You were in the World Series back in 1968, and then again this year. In another 44 years, you can play in the World Series again.

Sports Part II: The Atlanta Falcons have a 7-0 record in the National Football League. Oh my God! That has never happened in the history of the franchise. Team Owner Arthur Blank, billionaire former owner of Home Depot, can’t stop smiling. The team is deep in talent and healthy. They could go all the way.

Finally, in Entertainment: I watched the second installment of Atlas Shrugged last week. It’s a very well done motion picture. Beautifully shot and well directed. But the events in America in the movie closely parallel what is happening in America today. Crushing Federal regulations are forcing some businesses out of business. In the movie, the Feds order businesses to continue in business at present pricing of their goods and services, and forbid them to close. Then the Feds come to the owner of a steel company and require him to sell them steel. He refuses to sell at any price and they have him arrested and place him on trial. Meanwhile, top leaders in science and industry are disappearing. Yeah, I know how the book ends. But I’m still looking forward to the third installment of Atlas Shrugged.

That’s all for tonight. Thanks for looking us over. I am Russell D. Longcore. For all of us here at DumpDC…Good night and good luck.

May 5, 2012

By Russell D. Longcore

The Nation I: This week, Warren Buffet and Berkshire Hathaway are hosting their annual meeting in Omaha. Thousands will attend. You gotta give the old boy his snaps. He has become one of the world’s wealthiest men in the stock market and owning companies. But a big part of his amassed wealth came from doing business with the Federal Government. So is it any wonder that in his doting years, he says stupid things like “the wealthy should pay more income taxes?” His “Buffet Rule” legislation went down in flames last week in Congress. But think about this. No one is preventing any wealthy individual from writing an extra check to the US Treasury. So this is not about the wealthy paying more voluntarily. This is all about being forced to pay more at the threat of death or imprisonment. This is all so extraordinarily disingenuous. The Congress carries the water for business. The tax code for business owners is laden with tax benefits and tax credits that employees don’t get. Employees don’t have their capital at risk, and they don’t deserve business tax breaks. But we all deserve less taxation. So instead of stealing more from the wealthy, let’s see someone slash EVERYBODY’S tax rates. Even better would be a ten percent national sales tax and no income tax.

The Nation II: President Obama made a surprise trip to Afghanistan this week to keep the fictional account of the murder of Osama bin Laden alive, now one year old. This was a campaign speech wrapped in an even bigger lie. Obama didn’t cap Osama. Bin Laden died of kidney failure back in 2002. Too bad presidential lies are not felonies.

International I: In the wake of the nuclear meltdown in Japan, the Japanese government has closed all of its nuclear plants for the first time in 40 years. Now they expect brownouts and rolling blackouts. Out of the frying pan into the fire. Hey Japan!!! Ever heard of the Molten Salt Reactor, using thorium as fuel? Totally safe, no radioactive waste, 60-year-old technology? China has…

Business: At a Sotheby’s auction Wednesday, one of the original four versions of Edvard Munch’s painting The Scream (you know, white face, mouth gaping open, eyes wide…kind of looks like that mask from the horror films) sold for $119,922,500…a new record. The winning bidder had way more money than common sense.

In tonight’s commercial message. Here are the most important questions I could ask you: Are you living the dream? Do you spend as much time with the people you love as you want to? Are you living in the home of your dreams? Are you living in the spot in the world that you dream of? Do you drive the car of your dreams? Do you have a dream of helping others in some charity that remains unfulfilled? And let’s talk about where we spend a huge chunk of our time…at work. Are you working at the job of your dreams? Are you making the kind of money you always dreamed of earning? Were you able to answer “YES” to any of those questions? Most people I know are not living the dream…whatever that phrase means to THEM. I can’t tell you what YOUR dream is. But if you could not answer “YES”, how are you planning to make your dreams come true? There is a racing analogy that works well here: You must have the right vehicle but you must be the right driver. Think about it. If you have a NASCAR or Formula One car, and you’re the driver, you’ll probably get yourself killed in a race. And if you take the best NASCAR or Formula One driver and put him in a Volkswagen Beetle, he has no chance of winning. To win and make your dreams come true, you must be the right driver in the right vehicle. Here is another important question: How important ARE your dreams to you? Do you have a burning desire to make them come true…or do you just enjoy fantasizing about what it would be like to live the dream? Most of the people I spend time with are in the first category. They are working hard to make their dreams come true. Even if you have the right vehicle and you don’t think you’re the right driver, cheer up!! You can Learn to be a great driver…the driver of your dreams! If you’d like to learn more about making your dreams come true, and whether or not my energy business could be the right vehicle for you, send me an email at russlongcore@gmail.com. We can talk about it possibly designing a plan to make your dreams come true!

Economy I: The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 330,475 in the week ending April 28, a decrease of 40,158 from the previous week. Yet, the Labor Department reported 365,000 new jobless claims last week. And here is a new piece of information I have never seen before, Today, the St. Louis Federal Reserve released a Bureau of Labor Statistics chart and report about Americans in the category “Not In The Labor Force.” Their report showed 88,419,000 Americans that have functionally dropped out of the labor force altogether. The chart only records up to 88 million people. Now…do you wonder how the government-released unemployment rate can be between 8-9% when 88 million adults are not employed in America? Folks, there are only about 315 million living people in America, and 25% of them are below age 18. Do the math. That means the REAL unemployment rate is about 25%. This statistic makes the Great Depression of the 1930 look pale by comparison.
Here is the chart.

Sports: Former NFL All-pro linebacker Junior Seau died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound this week. Seau is the eighth player from the 1994 Chargers championship team to die. We will all learn more about Seau’s life as the story unfolds, but there is something real bad about the head trauma that is happening in the league all the time. A lot of old players are ending up with dementia and other ailments from old football injuries. But this is the most violent sport in America. There weren’t too many Roman Gladiators that enjoyed a soft retirement either.

Entertainment: The movie The Avengers opens this weekend, and many are predicting that it will have the biggest box office first weekend in history, even bigger than the biggest Harry Potter opening weekend.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly.At a theatre near you!
