Pat passed this on. Important. Read.

NOTE: There are several reasons why I wanted to get out of Phoenix,
such as the dirty air, dirty water, dirty politics, traffic
congestion, etc. However, one of the biggest reasons I wanted to get
out of Phoenix is because I know what is going to happen to the big
cities (in America) IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE. Anyone who is informed
knows what I'm talking about, but some of the informed ones have no
way to get out of the big cities at this time. I had a unique
opportunity and I took it!!! Those still in big cities in the very
near future will have a VERY rough time. (By "very near future", I
mean this year, in 2005 - - - it could start as soon as the next few
days). Anyone who is not informed, needs to become informed in order
to survive. Those Americans who have remained intentionally ignorant
will soon feel like a deer in headlights, being looked at through the
scope of a high-powered rifle. Harvey

Excellent information....and the pitiful Truth! jb
This is why Russia, China, North Korea, and the Arab Nations will
align themselves together against Western Europe, England and the U.S.
corporation for leadership of the new World Government. Look out
things are heating up (nuke time). Read Ezekiel chapters 37 through
42. America is the land of unwalled villages. Get out of the
cities!!!!! Revelation is being seen before your very eyes everyday!

Know About the Dollar & IraqDate: Thu, 24 Mar 2005 11:32:36 -0800From:

What You Didn't Know About the Dollar & Iraqby Mark Owen The Federal
Reserve is a system of private banks separate and distinct from the
U.S. government. This banking system was originally conceived by John
D. Rockefeller and J.P. Morgan. The FED, as it it known, is listed in
the white pages along with Federal Express, the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation, and other businesses. The bank produces Federal
Reserve Notes. They use these notes/dollars to purchase government
bonds. These notes are a fiat currency. Historically, all fiat
currencies eventually crash due to hyperinflation from over-issuance.
The supply of paper is limitless. There is no intrinsic value in paper
currency after delinking from a gold standard. This is why they are
referred to as bank notes. Legally, they can't be referred to as
'money.' They are mere tickets/tokens. Forced tender laws were passed
in order to give the paper currency legitimacy. The only thing giving
bank notes value is TAXATION. Gold and silver have intrinsic value
due to scarcity and the fact that it takes work to produce them
(mining, smelting etc). This is why they have been used as money for
5000 years. Precious metals are a good store of value. They retain
their value over time and aren't subject to inflation. The fiat paper
system is designed to create debt through inflation (devaluation of
currency). Whenever there is an increase in the money supply without a
corresponding increase in gold or silver backing, inflation results.
Inflation is a subtle form of theft banks impose upon citizens.
Goodbye gold-In the 1960s Lyndon Johnson borrowed billions from the
French Rothschilds so he wouldn't have to raise taxes to finance the
Viet Nam war. Rothschild agent Charles de Gaulle demanded repayment in
gold, not greenbacks. When Richard Nixon was elected he noted that the
treasury was almost depleted of gold and he removed the dollar from
the gold standard. But the debt still stood. Nixon collateralized the
debt with the mineral estate of the western U.S. and a land-for-debt
swap was initiated. Much of the western States were given to the
banks. This is when Nixon created the Environmental Protection Agency.
Their mandate was/is to PREVENT American citizens from logging,
farming, ranching or otherwise exploiting these lands being held for
the banks. The Bureau of Land Management and other agencies are used
to harass ranchers and farmers from the land. So, what does the
foregoing have to do with Middle East? Plenty. All central banks of
the world hold U.S. dollar reserves equivalent to the local currency
in circulation to facilitate trade. The dollar is the biggest American
export. It is impossible to overstate this. Also, when any country
wishes to purchase oil, they must first convert their local currency
to U.S. dollars and then purchase oil from the cartels. This is the
arrangement hammered out between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia in 1974.
The quid pro quo was that the U.S. armed the Saudis to the teeth. In
the last two years the euro currency has gained 30% relative to the
U.S. dollar. The European banks are seeking to have the euro accepted
as the new world reserve currency. Countries like China and Japan are
sitting atop mountains of U.S. dollars that are being daily devalued.
Since the U.S. dollar is printed by the FED at will and without
restraint (and is not linked to gold), Americans are essentially
getting the world's oil for free (it costs the FED around 4 cents to
print a one hundred dollar Federal Reserve note). France and Germany
would like a piece of the free oil pie. FED chairman Alan Greenspan is
forced to feed the recovery myth or risk a panic sell-off of dollars.
This past spring he tripled the money supply to $50 billion per week.
This is making even seasoned economists nervous. In August, Morgan
Stanley chief economist Stephen Roach predicted a stock market crash
on the scale of 1987s Black Monday. "The funding of America is an
accident waiting to happen," he declared. In speeches made outside of
the U.S. (and only then) Greenspan has repeatedly warned of a possible
'systemic collapse' of the financial system. The printing of all of
this paper is leading to massive inflation. All commodities have
spiked from 10 to 90% over the last year. $15 dollar jeans available
from Wal-Mart produced by slave labor in China somewhat disguise this
fact. Another trick the money masters use to lull citizens is to
periodically and surreptitiously ditch dinosaur industries from the
DOW (like Kodak, this past spring) and supplant them with high-tech
earners like Verizon, for instance. This is not to say that U.S.
companies aren't investing billions of dollars in new production; they
are. It's just that it's in China, not Ohio. China's quarter-trillion
dollar export boom is America's import deficit. The debt-based credit
inferno must create ever larger volumes of debt (credit) to prevent a
financial implosion. The entire world growth since 2003 depends on the
record FED money supply. Total U.S. debt now stands at $34 trillion.
The U.S. GDP is $11 trillion. This means that debt is 3 times GDP,
greater even than the depression of the 1930s. But happily for
American citizens, the Federal Reserve of Cleveland commissioned a
study recently on ways to diffuse this massive debt bomb. Options
discussed included: - doubling payroll taxes from 15.3% of wages to
32% immediately and forever - raising income taxes by two thirds
immediately and forever - cutting Social Security and Medicare by 45%
immediately and forever - eliminating forever all discretionary
spending on courts, highways and parks. Enter Saddam -In November 2000
Saddam Hussein tried to barter Iraq's oil directly for euros. This
would have cut America out of its enormous subsidy and started a
stampede of other OPEC members to embrace the euro. This simply would
not stand. 9-11 was the pretext used to boot Saddam. Bush couldn't get
America's moms to sacrifice their children for dollar hegemony and
the terrorist bogey was activated. Fourteen huge, permanent bases are
currently under construction in Iraq, along with the world's biggest
embassy in Baghdad (3,500 employees, and counting). Bush will continue
on a permanent war footing in the Middle East in order to protect U.S.
dollar hegemony. There is no other option. All future wars will be run
out of Iraq. Iran has been making noises lately about ditching the
U.S. dollar in favor of the euro, as have the Saudis. They're next.
The U.S. will dismantle OPEC and surround Saudi Arabia, keeping their
hand firmly on the oil spigot. This is the essence of the petro-dollar
warfare that we are witnessing, in a nutshell....

ABC Radio countrywide

Keri Phillips: This is Rear Vision on . i happen to be Keri Phillips.

Announcer: as recently as 30 years ago this could have landed you in jail in Spain, But in 2008 the sex couples can cheerfully compare wedding rings. Legally hitched, With the legal right to adopt children courtesy of the Zapatero government.

mom to be: Everybody knew Zapatero as a result civil marriage for gay and lesbians you know. That was meaningful. Spain was leading the civil rights the first time in our history.

Keri Phillips: Part of a BBC report within campaign for this year's elections in Spain, Where the Socialist navy of Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero was elected to a second term. within the first term, Zapatero legalised gay union and eased the divorce laws. He also appointed equal numbers of people to his cabinet. this time around, The prime minister, who has been re elected in March, Appointed more women than men to his cabinet. you will find 9 women out of 17 ministers. And by way of comparability, nationwide there are 4 women out of 19 and in the UK 5 out of 22.

Today on Rear imagination, We'll check out the changing lives of women in Spain, Where little more than 30 years ago, beneath the dictatorship of General Francisco Franco, Men had a right to beat their wives. in the 1930s though, before the Civil War that brought Franco to power, Spain appreciated a brief moment of democracy, As a century of tension between monarchists and republicans gave way to the brief Second Republic. Associate Professor Judith Keene is the Director of the ecu Studies Centre at the University of Sydney.

Judith Keene: the primary change that happened and it affects Spaniards, But exceptionally affects women, Is that the Republic is declared in 1931 and they set about producing a constitution, And the constitution's very generous, And there's a whole suite of reforms that include the constitution, you may already know, Separating church and state and things like that. But whenever referring to women, Women receive the vote, And divorce is earned legal, And civil marriage is acknowledged. So it comes in with this unexpected sort of reforming zeal and this enormous amount of enthusiasm for all these changes. But it's quite interesting, Because when they will really get to the Cortes, That's the parliament where the vote is taken on the articles of the composition, A number of parties on the Left actually opposed women getting the vote, And very surprisingly, The Socialists as an example did, although Socialist platform since the 1880s, you know, The sort of European unusual Socialist Movement, Has always had women's rights contained in the platform. But in Spain clearly there was this fear that as the newspaper said, That 'women would vote to any priest'.

So if the time came for the vote, And it was taken and passed, and girls did get the vote, A number of quite well known Socialists actually left the chamber mainly because they couldn't bring themselves to vote against it, Because that was the style the party platform had always said, But nor could they bring themselves to vote for it because they feared that it certainly is the end of the Republic. and consequently, Which I always think is very interesting, The Catholic parties which had always opposed women's rights, Voted for it indeed, Because they hoped that this notion that women would vote to the last priest are the case.

You know the Republic doesn't just emerge from Mars as it were, considering Napoleonic invasion, The so called Spanish War of freedom, There's been a strand of a kind of reform in Spain. In fact I always think of it as like a zig and a zag that there is one strand that comes out of European liberalism that's secular, And wants to improve the public education system and escape from the Church, And then there is a traditional strand that is against them, And that strand looks back to Spain's what are known as glorious past, It has nothing to do with Europe, and it's Catholic. So those two strands sit very uneasily every single. I think this reforming thing is not so surprising when you see it the 19th century. And Spaniards just felt this is 1931 and the great in Western Europe had always said 'Africa begins at the Pyrenees' and many, Many Spaniards were revealing, Even monarchists were actually saying, 'Look, The time has come to modernise and rid themselves of this absurd notion that Spaniards are like dinosaurs in Europe' etc. So it equates of a whole cluster of things I think.

Keri Phillips: The Second Republic was characterised by violence and political instability as Spain's powerful elite the military, Industrialists, Land owners and the Catholic church fought moderates and extremists on the Left for control at the ballot box and on the street.

Joan Botella: Of you have compare unique car features between the two sides, well? Let's say the nation's side, The practical group that were the Franco group, Was astonishingly, Very ordinary, And among the first things they did was sending women back home, For instance including separate schools for young children. conversely, The situation was very different. there would be, specifically in the first months of the war, that it hadn't been just a civil war but also a revolution, And that a section of the revolution was the change in the private lives of people, And the implication of women playing a central role in every factor of social life, Even nearly always sexual liberation etcetera were very, Very important. And you may notice images, pics or movies of the first months of the civil war, the truth is many, Many women in the streets playing the same roles, Or driving cars or even having a gun throughout their hands, Playing quite identical role as men could. So received a very, very important change, Which brought about and meant concurrently, a significant change in mentalities, Which survived long, nevertheless had comments the end of the civil war.

Keri Phillips: located in April, 1939, The Republicans surrendered unconditionally to the fiercely anti communist General Francisco Franco, Who had become the dictator of Spain, Now a one party express.

Joan Botella: After the end of the civil war and the launch of the Franco regime, Spain moved towards a very careful, Catholic and anti feminist let's pretend, mentality, Which tried to move back in time. quickly, there is a single party, the official single party in Spain which had a separate section for women members of the party, So even between their loved ones they were very, Very discerning against women. And there was a multitude of aspects which were reintroduced in the laws. the criminal law, If a married man met his woman with another man, And slain them, A very vintage 'passionel crime', that is not a crime; that simply was allowed to be done. thus, It was a very strong reactionary movement trying to set the clock back.

your '40s and '50s, There was clearly a project of restoration of the old long-established order in Spain. It was done through laws, It was done through the creation of services which were oriented to monitor and control what women did. There was a number of companies specialised in framing women's lives etc, It was not just coming back again, But clearly it was a legal politics project of changing things, Of looking Spain into a very macho country, let's say. occurred in all aspects of life. reminiscent of, The attendance of women to universities or colleges, not possible to buy even count the percent in those years, You can count some unique cases even there, Women were very nearly excluded from university. here is an example there was military service type of conscription for men in those years. There was a similar thing for women, It was called Social center, Where women learnt how to cook and deal with the babies. The role that had been assigned to women it was very, Very clearly the role of the most traditional, original home woman.

Keri Phillips: Eva Anduiza is a Professor of Political Science at the Autonomous university or college of Barcelona. So we had this subordination towards husbands and parents. The social sphere was well male, And women were organized by men. from your home, Probably things were some other, But once you were outside family members, Women were clearly in a subordinated location. Of course the Church had a privileged arrangement with the Franco regime; In terms of controlling education to provide an example, it has almost no public education, and also, Very few schools which are not religious, Catholic. Also because women were little or no organised, And evaluations were organised, It was mainly through religious organisations. So also the church had the means to control and to trouble women's life through that channel too. Obviously it was an established regime and the head of this regime was militaryman, because of this he wasn't going to defend women's rights at all. I imagine this is a means of social control, I mean the fact of having women under control is a means of having an essential part of society under control. I don't know whether this was a strategic decision but I think that the belief that many the army's not precisely you know, a new actor in society, And nearly everywhere their relationship with the Church was privileged by Franco, And the belief that by having the church and the state putting women in these secondary positions, They had a means of controlling society in a way that would have been difficult, so long as rights and equality for women.

Keri Phillips: Today we're checking remarkable changes in the lives of women in Spain since the end of the Franco dictatorship in 1975.

After world war II, Spain remained politically and economically isolated until 1959 when the so called 'Spanish miracle' an economic boom that lasted until the oil shock of 1973 began to remodel the country.

Joan Botella: That meant certain things. also, Allowing free trade for some other countries, And that meant also allowing the Spaniards to move freely to other countries in europe to go there to work. Emigration was enormously essential in Spain in the '60s. an incredible number of Spaniards moved to France, the united kingdom, denmark, switzerland etc. Spanish migrants never wanted to stay in those countries, But their project was to come back to Spain, So that meant that ten years later there was a very large number of the working classes in Spain who had lived the expertise of living in free democratic countries. And that was necessary component for the future change to democracy in Spain.

otherwise, travel and leisure was very, quite important in the factor of change. We may smile now remembering this, But when european people from France, From Britain or Germany started to arrive at Spain to spend their summers in 1958 or '59, There was an incredible, awfully, Very strong reaction from the safe and effective Spain against that. for, There were policemen on the beaches monitoring which swimsuits people were wearing on the beaches to look out for morals in behaviour. Or e. g,liquids, in a few towns, It was the police themselves who were going to the private pools or to the seaside to take a look and control what happened there. In practical terms that meant the arrival to Spain from a large number of people from other countries, And little girls, ladies, Which clearly expressed approaches living, suppose a more free, Independent unique life. That was an enormous shock for the mentalities of the efficient Spain, But on top of that, rrt had been a very, key element of change in Spanish mentalities.

You remember the '60s was a bit everywhere in the world, a period of opening, Of money of mentalities, A bit of a innovation everywhere. and this also reached Spain, even with those conditions. The Franco regime understood that its old style could not survive in this new context, So they had to release many of the controls, And it was visible that to produce in Spain were changing immediately.

reporter: The tough old dictator finally gave up his amazing struggle to live at 4.40am nearby time. The Spanish nation told that the man who had ruled all of an iron fist for 36 years was dead, In a news flash broadcast on the State watched radio an hour and a half later. He died in the La Paz facility in Madrid, Where he underwent three major companies during his incredible 35 day battle against death, Which confounded laymen and cosmetic surgeons alike.

Keri Phillips: marriage ceremony death of General Franco in November 1975, Prince Juan Carlos assumed the career of King and head of state. A new Spanish structure was written and the return to democracy marked by the election of a Socialist government in 1982. Divorce had been legalised for civil relationships in the late 1970s, But abortion remained an issue too difficult to address. the us govenment was not prepared to risk Spain's fragile new democracy with radical reform.

Joan Botella: the moment Socialists reached cabinet in 1982, Their essential program was 'Let's get this country work', good? And 'Let's get out of old crises, Of traditional stagnation and transmogrify it into a normal European country.' The most discussed issue concerning these women's policies concerned abortion over again. In 1982 the old criminal law was still in Spain in the terms it had been in the Franco years, And the Socialist party or at least a section of the Socialist party, Had recommended the decriminalisation of abortion, But the Socialist state and federal government did not dare go in that far. pretty girl in spanish They feared there has got to be reaction from the Catholic elements in Spanish society. So the thing that was done is that abortion is still a crime in Spain, But in some specific concerns, It is not subject to judicial prosecution. contraceptive was introduced early, at the end of the 1970s, And vendors have introduced without discussion or without protests. basically the Catholic world in Spain you must make a distinction between the top level of the Catholic world, I mean the bishops or some press or some radio stations, And the rank and file, And the many Catholics in the country.

Spanish Catholics are quite liberal, They're quite comprehensive of these problems in life and they're very strongly favoured for instance of contraception, together with divorce, Even if they can not themselves divorce. But they would not accept that divorce would be forbidden for everyone else.

Keri Phillips: The Socialist Party remained in office for almost 14 years and the conservative Popular Party, Led by Jose nancy Aznar, Made no try to turn back the clock on women's rights when they were elected in 1996.

Joan Botella: That's a fun issue because the attitude towards women of those issues you have been discussing was traditionally the differential element, One of the differential elements with the right and left. So when Aznar and the customers' Party reached office in 1996, They wanting to prove that this was not true, and they're at least as feminist as the others. instance, the final Socialist Cabinet, In 1995 let's pretend, Had three spanish ladies the women as Ministers, The first Aznar storage in 1996 had four, Just to show that they are no less feminist than the Socialists had been the previous years.
