Five less Gov employees is justification enough

Something is soooo desperately wrong with that FL bridge scene. Speaking from an engineers standpoint – its just plain inconceivable, so much so that My gut reaction was that this must be a false flag. You see, bridge technology is ancient and established, so much so that you don’t have to be an engineer. There are books on the subject – Just pick a span and a load and then pick from well-proven designs – its frkn been done 10,000 times before. There’s nothing new.

https://www.amazon.com/Bridge-Design-Evaluation-LRFD-LRFR-ebook/dp/B00B89F8CC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1521385098&sr=8-2&keywords=bridge+designs

You don’t need to be an engineer to design your garage. You need trusses. It’s a sophomore course in engineering. Just pick your span and your choice of materials. Its been done a million times – NO design required.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GD54bn6pNSI

You don’t even need that. Just get a CAD program for your computer. It designs the thing for you with all the "over –build", built-in to meet every existing safety requirement.

Now, in NYS, IF you wanna build a bridge over anything, most especially a road~!, You are gonna be inspected by City, County, State, AND Federal inspectors, AND they are gonna be On-Site everyday and they are gonna be at your 7AM daily planning meetings so that they know ex-zactly where the activity for the day is gonna be, and they have to sign-off on every stage – NOT just at the end when all or most of the construction is already in place.

There is soooo much wrong with this picture, I don’t know where to start. First of all I would arrest the inspectors, and hold them w/o bail, on charges of murder, first degree. Or better yet, hang 'em all and then start the investigation. Five less Gov employees is justification enough all by itself.

I love that post

Abguy4,

Recognizing a full blown false flag, and so clearly articulating so many things that support that assertion, was actually beyond my scope of expertise. All I saw, was a picture of the original design. Putting that section over a roadway was an act of premeditated murder. I think you've correctly identified the culprits.

Now, you should know by now, government is never held accountable for anything. That's why they can murder with impunity.

But I'm the idealistic one. wink

Hey Ruffian, you've got no fucking imagination whatsoever. devil

Communes were never about individual liberty, they were all about Communism. 

I wholeheartedly reject that they have any relevance whatsoever in this discussion. no

The first principal of a civil society, is sovereign people peacefully coexisting with each other voluntarily.

The first thing you surrender when you join a commune, is your individual sovereignty. 

That's the real reason they fail every time they are tried.

Try again, that was too easy. cheeky

simplest conspiracy ever

Affirmative Action Bridge + Gravity = Disaster

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/17/us/florida-international-university-b...

"Florida International University, long known as a commuter school and an engine of mobility for Greater Miami’s Cuban-Americans, has in the past two decades transformed itself into one of the largest public universities in the country.

Its rapid expansion and enhanced reputation helped its selection in 2013 as an official federal research center for an engineering method called accelerated bridge construction.

“Do I worry about the image of the university? Every breathing moment,” F.I.U.’s president, (((Mark B. Rosenberg))), said in an interview. “But the response that we’ve gotten from around the country has been overwhelmingly positive. It’s not the time now to be worried about our image.”

“We are the pride and joy of the Cuban community,” said Modesto A. Maidique, a former university president.

But the student body has also diversified, and enrollment has grown to more than 50,000 from 15,000 three decades ago. Despite opposition from competing schools, the university used its tight relationships with politicians to elevate its athletic program to Division 1, add doctoral programs and open schools of architecture, law, medicine and engineering.

“We as an institution see ourselves as an anchor in the community,” Dr. Rosenberg said, with a responsibility to address major issues, including sea level rise, disparity in health outcomes, hurricanes, AIDS prevention and transportation. “We are leaning in. As an institution, we’re not in a fetal position waiting for the sky to fall.” [nope - just the bridge]

“This was a good project,” (((Dr. Rosenberg))) said Friday. “This was a project that spoke to our desire to build bridges. When the board hired me, I told them, ‘If you give me a pile of rocks, I’m going to build a bridge, not a wall.’ This was about neighborliness and collaboration.”

In September 2015, Munilla Construction Management, a business led by a Cuban-American family, submitted its proposal to build the pedestrian bridge that collapsed on Thursday. The project was officially known as the University City Prosperity Project.

The proposal emphasized the bridge’s dramatic features — a tapering pylon, glass-enclosed elevator and programmable lighting — as well as the Munilla firm’s connections. Forty percent of the firm’s team members were F.I.U. graduates, “which enhances our passion for success,” the proposal said.

It was signed by Jorge Munilla, Munilla Construction Management’s president. “They’re significant players in the Cuban community,” said Dr. Maidique, who is also Cuban-American. Mr. Munilla’s company won the project, beating out several other firms.

No man is an island, therefore you MUST join the collective

and have some demented psychopathic cock sucker in charge. If the DPCS only wants 3% of your toil, product and labor that was enough to drive the colonials to war with George III, himself an inbred genetically damaged wack job Since I got the red ass this AM due to a letter received from a very large division of Leviathan telling me I gotta give back money that was mine from the git go, I think that any two words that include Good, Government, Governance, Ethical, Moral, Caring, Investment, Supportive, Partnership and the like are oxymoronic statements from the jump. The only two words that can be mashed together when one word is "Government" is all those creative descriptions you noted in your essay above, MR Fix.

I've come to the conclusion that at this stage of the game there are no good letters from the government. If the return address has the name of the government agency assume it's bad news.

 Today the only letters you will receive are demands that you repay money that was extorted or extracted by the government at some time in the past or letters from the government telling you to pay money to that sucking black hole at some time in the future. We all know the sort of monetary and physical demands placed on us in the present as well. Those don't require letters, only complete obedience and compliance or else.

Even the slightest encounter with a tentacle of the great 1,000 legged octopus we call government will usually cause us pain, worry, anxiety, financial loss, anger and disgust. It's like brushing up against stinging nettles or a sea wasp. It sting then and it continues to sting for hours or days later.

I usually don't quote great philosophers but Frederick Douglass comes to mind when he talked about the fact that there was no difference to him, as a former and freed slave, that if a master took 100% of his labor and substance, or 50%, or 20% or even 3% ( the level of taxation that begat the colonial separatist revolution), that person is still a slave indentured to a government or master.

Any thing, any government or any person who takes from the labor and substance of another man or woman creates a Master Slave relationship; even if it's a 5% takings. The slave cannot refuse. If he does he forfeits his freedom and life to the master. That modest amount, if unpaid, will have terrible consequences to his person.

The slave then goes from a 5% level of tax, labor theft and slavery immediately to a 100% level in the amount of time it takes that goon squad thugocrat constabulary to look you up, hook you up and cook you up.

5% begets 5 years; 10% gets you 10 years. More means life in the local gulag slave labor camps, often run by for profit corporations whose PRIME DIRECTIVE is more, More and MORE able warm bodies crammed into the cells and prison factories to produce goods for; What Else, the government buying said products on a non-compete basis from the for profit prison slave corporations.

The cops, judges, AGs, DAs, media and a very large part of public opinion drives this gulag system, extolling the virtues of a robust and harsh slave labor system We have 5 times more people incarcerated in the USSA than the next 5 countries in this world. 1,800,000 locked up in terror camps. The people held in Gitmo got a better gig than the average homie in a super max

And we're the Indispensable Country. The Exceptional Country

Fuck me, I can only imagine what happens when we lose that self appointed, self annointed exaulted status is shoved up our asses. Then the fat will be in the fire

Whoo Hooo Burn Baby, burn

Fix, 

It's NOT that I am brainwashed to believe that there has to be a government, I'm brainwashed to believe that this is not a perfect world and people will never act perfectly and people are always looking to belong to a group. Damn it, go look at your 11th house that I gave you. That's what it is all about. How you relate to groups.

I can't get past, nobody understands natural law, nobody talks about natural law, therefore they will behave according to natural law.

I'm just saying we need a group of leaders beyond reproach to pop people in the ass with some of those guns that are out there when they misbehave.

You seem to think that if a branch falls in the street, we're all gonna run out there and move it for the collective good.

I happen to think this is more likely based on my experience as HU-man on planet earth.

Trump: Russians didn't help

Trump: Russians didn't help me win this election. Now drop the case. 

Trump: The Russians killed their own spy. 

The Russia Poison Story is WMD 2.0

Corbett • 03/17/2018 • 

So you know the poisoning of Sergei Skripal? The incident that is causing British Prime Minister Theresa May to start a war of words with the Russians that could potentially lead to World War III? Well, imagine explaining the story to your MSM-addicted, normie friend:

YOU: Hey, did you know the US government has a top secret bioweapon that they use to kill their political enemies? Well, no one has actually proven it exists much less collected any samples of it, but trust me, it exists and they use it.

FRIEND: What? Secret bioweapon? No evidence? Ugh! Shut up, burglary theorist! . . . errrr, I mean, Shut up, conspiracy theorist!

YOU: Oops, did I say the US government? I meant the Russian government.

FRIEND: Oh, the Russian government, you say? Well, then, this sounds perfectly believable.

Yes, believe it or not, that is essentially what we are being told by the powers-that-shouldn’t-be. “The Russians are using a super-secret poison that may or may not exist but we’re too busy to provide any evidence for this. Just trust us. Oh, and let’s threaten a world nuclear superpower based on this non-evidence, too!”

It's not a perfect world...

Green Lantern,

It doesn't take brainwashing to conclude that this is not a perfect world, it only takes casual observation. You seem to think that by advocating for a voluntary society, that some kind of utopia would suddenly emerge, and all of life's challenges would cease to exist.

Quite to the contrary, Life is always a challenge, and always will be. All I am saying, is that government does not solve any of these challenges, it only exponentially exacerbates them.

So, what happens to a group of leaders beyond reproach? The solution you advocated for?

They are routinely, and systematically slaughtered. This is why a group of leaders can't change anything.

This is only changes when a very large segment of humanity realizes that government is not a solution, it is by far, the biggest problem. 

AGXIIK,

Excellent! Some people actually grasp these concepts, so all hope is not lost. I thank you for your contribution.

I agree with you, with your basic assertion is that we are nowhere near that level of consciousness,

So basically, for your life, and mine, we are just along for the ride.

But going forward, as governments try to maintain their grasp on power, they are increasingly revealing what they actually are, to more and more people. This is a prerequisite for any meaningful change.

It also points towards the only solution.

We have agreed that human liberty is a first principle, this points to only one solution.

Libertarianism is not, and never will be a solution.

The main point of my post, was that I actually agree with the Vox guy, in that we will never have Libertarianism,

I'm just doing it for different reasons, from a different premise, and pointing out it wouldn't work anyway.

We don't have to rehash the entire debate, but if misnomer's are presented, or if my position has been somehow falsely represented, if I become aware of it, I will reply.

This solution requires an idealistic approach, which shouldn't be completely and summarily dismissed as idealistic, because it is. 

But being called idealistic by a self-professed heathen, who doesn't see any value in placing principles first, makes Ruffian just too tempting a target to ignore, because in this case, she is a perfect example of mainstream thought.

It goes something like "let's just automatically dismiss any solutions that wreaks of idealism". 

This just ensures that what is hopelessly broken, can never, ever be fixed.

You can never solve a problem with the level of consciousness that created it.

If raising the level of consciousness is the only solution, then, you've got to start somewhere.

The 11th house

Green Lantern,

I am quite grateful for the charts you provided me, and I certainly owe you at least a lunch.

Your call.

My 11th House points to a lot of resources that I've spent most of my life avoiding like the plague.

I have only very recently become aware of just how important plugging into my community is, and how self sabotaging it is to be such a freaking loner.

These long-term patterns don't change overnight, but I have found a lot of useful information that I can use to address my weaknesses, you've even helped make me quite aware of a few that I was oblivious to not all that long ago.

I also have great strengths in certain areas, which need to be incorporated into any plan moving forward.

I am taking notes, and formulating strategies as I go, 

I thought I would have more questions for you by now, but combined with the other things that I've been working with, it all seems remarkably self-explanatory.

It's a work in progress, and there's plenty of work that lies ahead.

Fix,  My solution is the

Fix, 

My solution is the Benevolent Authority or Wise Elders "steering society" and people working out things on a local level through a depth understanding of the natural order. That is well beyond any political party in existence today.

I'm busy studying for the exam to be a member of that society where I understand the "how" and "why" beyond the "who" 

How the laws of nature work and how the plants, stones, planets, and humans are all woven together and see what "is" and understand the "why"

To peirce layers of meaning and causality.

Fix, Don't worry about the lunch but I'll certainly eat.

Get what you can from it. It's not an overnight understanding. It all represents a process.

I'm not in the frame of mind to go deeper with all sorts of things that can be done.

I'm so focused on taking all this stuff and applying it to financial markets and political realities away from the Personel and Evolutionary applications from where I started.

I've discovered a whole new application for declinations, mid-points and retrogrades that I didn't know existed. And then I can go back and apply them to psychological realm. It's like two entirely different schools and many of the best writers left alot of stuff out. 

I swear the great purging happened years ago and society still suffers from it. Google and youtube is just the most recent round. But I bet they don't purge the video's I've been watching as they seem to have little appeal to the masses. That work was already done. 

Aristotle taught about the phases and facets of the moon and how they related to weather cycles, years ago. If humanity understood these things, we'd never have to worry about global warming or deal with flat earth theories. You were persecuted for understanding the natural order and they took the tools away from humanity to understand the nature of reality. It really is much more devious than gun control. Moon Control.

BTW Fix, you and I are about

BTW Fix, you and I are about the same age, I'm a few years younger but we were both both under the same conditions and outer planet influences. We took on the 60's. We really did. The older crowd here doesn't have those influences, nor the younger crowd here. We might come off a little "bombastic" to an older crowd.

People born today will have these influences. That's why you and I have interest in similar subjects and approach it in a similar manner. Maybe similar passion. We are hard wired to investigate this area because we were born at a time of revolution, very uranian and Neptunian. This is when all this stuff started to come out, 60's exploration of psychedelics and higher consciousness talk began. We were born in a moment of transition. People in their 60's and 70's came in with more rigid planetary influences and that was the point of the 60's to break up rigid thinking and thought forms. We've arrived again but this time it's up two harmonics. 

The mountain is not smooth otherwise you would slide down. It has rocks, and all sorts of as those are the things that give you strength to climb further. 

You and I didn't come into lead the easy life. NOPE. Not all revolutions are the same. 

I really do honor people's rights to own a gun especially the mature people here. But that's not how you and I are destined to fight the revolution. You might not realize it yet, but you need to teach people. Obviously, people that want to hear.

Mr Fix some of your comments earlier are what kicked off mine

Regretfully I also realize that as far as consciousness goes, I'm sitting in a kiddie train, 4th car car back.

Daily I'm reminded that John Wayne Gacy is the engineer. Jeff Dahmer is the conductor and the Hillside Killer is collecting tickets. But I think I can handle them. Until we hit some serious bumps in the road. 

I'm shaken out of my somnolence and realize I'm back on the same train as before though I kidded myself that I changed trains at the last station

In the last year I've done a major shift out of a Mach 5 with my hair on fire life to one that's more 'sedate', maybe even serene, after white knuckling the 8 years of POTUS 44 and his wrecking crew and a 50 year career of sorts doing this and that to make some bread and occupy time with things that caught my interest. Half a century of doing one basic thing is, frankly, enough.

With the shifting of gears comes a great awareness that much is not right with the world, getting worse by the day and our privileged lifestyles here in America are being assaulted by characters worse than Gacy. I've dealt with a few psychopaths and a boat load of sociopaths and degenerate narcissists They come and go like the uptown bus You can set your watch to their arrival time. But they come in ones and twos; fairly easy to deal with.

The vast Kultursmog of people free boating on the flanks of Leviathan, who would have us at neck and knee, are like a swarm of zombies that won't stop. The penny ante schenanigans of an single arm of government can be swatted aside, as I am going to now so with the latest insult to my cash from Leviathan's hench-bureaus. It's pretty easy once you see some government grifter lope by your front door, rattling the locks to see who's home or maybe left the door unlocked.

It's the back stage of the government shit show, where the roadies lurk, complete with minions that never sleep, never relent in novel ways to press their boot on our necks, that's annoying to the extent that once one boot is removed, another steps down.

Maybe I'll figure out how to deal with these exigencies of life, our time on this world and important junctures in the current state of affairs that come at us daily

Today I've finally come full circle, to the realization that I trust not one single element of any government or any organic part of the machine. Today each hungry tentacle is covered with hooks and suckers.

Tomorrow I might find something else of interest as I'm spurred by the realization that certain people and institutions are built and set up from their incept date to be a burden on the people.

Like the Florida bridge that failed because of design flaws and hubris, it's emblematic that almost any human endeavor that works to create a control mechanism or machine will fail catastrophically. It may become our destiny to break these structures, accelerate their failure, knock them down and thus allow people trapped under the edifice to realize they've been in a jail and now that jail's been removed.

This can be communicated far and wide. It's going to require that for people to get this, they will have to suffer greatly in the process of discovery. That pain awakes awareness that lies just beneath the surface. We can create a Leviathan of consciousness in this matter, one piece at a time. Awareness starts slowly and first and then moves very very fast.

It's a relentless task, a lifetime chore to do this. Maybe this is a turning for me. What was that saying from our teens, back in the late 1960's Never trust anyone over 30? Or never trust anyone from the government? Even Reagan knew the utter futility of the famous words.

"We're from the government and we're here to help"

Thanks guys, I can't deal with the discomfort of watching monkeys wreck stuff.

"C'mon Ruffian you have no imagination whatsoever"

You are wrong on that point Mr.Fix and I have every confidence that you will apologise for that statement.

We are all in this together and Ruffian is a major contributor here.

All opinions have validity but the real truth becomes apparent over time.

Your own post's are great reading but have no greater 'Mana' (power and prestige) than Ruff's.

when shit gets real

TURD BURGLAR:

This is someone who does not realise that you are in the stall and tries to force the door open. This is one of the most shocking and vulnerable moments that can occur when taking a crap at work If this occurs, remain in the stall until the Turd Burglar leaves. This way you will avoid all uncomfortable eye contact.

CAMO-COUGH:

A phony cough that alerts all new entrants into the bathroom that you are in a stall is called a Camo-Cough. This can be used to cover-up a WATERMELON, or to alert potential Turd Burglars. The Camo-Cough is very effective when used in conjunction with an ASTAIRE.

ASTAIRE:

A subtle toe-tap that is used to alert potential Turd Burglars that you are occupying a stall. This will remove all doubt that the stall is occupied. If you hear an Astaire, leave the bathroom immediately so the pooper can poop in peace. 

WATERMELON:

A watermelon is a hefty dump that creates a loud splash when hitting the toilet water. This is also an embarrassing incident. If you feel a Watermelon coming on, create a diversion. See CAMO-COUGH.

HAVANA OMELET:

A case of the shits that creates a series of loud splashes in the toilet water. Often accompanied by an Escapee. Try using a Camo-Cough with an Astaire.

UNCLE TODD:

An Uncle Todd is a bathroom user who seems to linger around forever. This person could spend extended lengths of time in front of the mirror or sitting on the dumpster. An Uncle Todd makes it difficult to relax while on the crapper, as you should always wait to do poos when the bathroom is empty. This benefits you as well as other Turd Burglars.
