Politics and the 80/20 Principle

We all know by now that the 80/20 principle states that 80% of our business comes from 20% of our customers and 80% of our complaints come from 20% of them as well.

So what do I mean when I refer to an 80/20 principle in politics? If seems to me, and this is just my opinion based on decades of observation – that maybe 10% of the people are on the far left. And 10% are on the far right. That leaves the vast majority – 80% in between.

The 20% get the majority of the media attention, their respective political parties act as if everyone agrees with “their” 10% and hated the other party’s 10% passionately.

The founding fathers, recognizing that our country was too big – even then, for everybody to sit around a big table in Philadelphia, established a representative democracy. We, the people, elect folks to represent us.

These representatives go to our state houses and to Washington as our representatives. They are there to do our bidding. They work for us. They represent us.

How to Achieve 'Liberty' – The Freedom to Choose the Path Our Lives Take

Cage birds accept each other but flight is what they long for.

–Tennessee Williams, Camino Real, 1953

The power to choose how to act and react to the world around us creates our reality, because we have the freedom to control our own lives. It is the choice to turn left or right, to be happy or sad, and it is always with us even at those times when we do not feel free. Its power is enormous. It can be our greatest ally or it can become our greatest enemy. By making the right choices, we can open the doors to lead a balanced life.

Many of us like to think that we are the spokesperson for the universe, that we know all the answers to all the questions of the universe. In our more humble moments, we generally understand that each of us only can be our own spokesperson. However, when we accept the gift of freedom of choice, we must take responsibility and become accountable for everything in our lives.

Quest for Freedom–A Story Of Pure Courage

The Nazis stormed into the house of Stanislavsky Lech, who was Jewish, herded the entire family out at gunpoint, packed them into an overcrowded train, filled with the stench of death and despair, and sent them to Krakow.

Then, before his eyes, Lech saw his entire family shot. Somehow, he managed to live from one day to the next, in a numb, oblivious, zombie-like state. Impatiently, he awaited his own death. But one day, he realized, that his own death was not an unavoidable truth. He could, in fact, do something about it: he could make an attempt to escape.

Once he had made his decision, he didn’t know how to execute it. He only knew one simple thing: his decision was irrevocable, and, somehow, he had to find a way to act on it.

As the weeks passed into months, he interrogated his fellow prisoners. “How can we escape?” he would ask. He became a nuisance, an irritation. “It’s hopeless,” they would echo. “Stop hurting yourself,” they would plead. Some would abuse him openly; others would turn away in silence.

Late Summer Attact on America?

Introduction to the Video from sylvestermoore
I have uploaded some new video footage of the fema cremation coffins that exist in conyers georgia. US Intel department said they expect a WMD attack on US soil within 5 years. They suspect it will be a biological attack.

A dispassionate review of the facts makes clear that, if a large number of coffins had to be stockpiled in anticipation of some ultra-dire national emergency, Atlanta would be a good place to do it. It is a major confluence for road, rail, and air traffic. Hartsfield Jackson is one of the nations biggest and busiest hubs for commercial aviation. Atlanta is also home to the Centers for Disease Control. Is it the CDC that knows something we dont? Is a plague expected and no one is telling us? As radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones wrote on his website Prison Planet, I dont want to alarm anyone, but usually you dont buy 500,000 plastic coffins just in case something happens; You buy them because you know something is going to happen.

“The God that Wasn’t There” trailer

This may be a video that helps you understand why certain people who believe they are following the good teaching of Christ, instead back the actions that are a far cry from Christ. If the leaders preach hate, intolerance, the followers will also. It is in our nature to be these things, it is religion that should hold us to a better standard.

Everyone is talking about this video…

I love what the “Puppet” was for, but the “Puppet Masters” are wasting no time.
This video will help you to understand who the puppet masters are. If you have been keeping up with GenerationCobweb, it will start coming together.
We must become as knowledgeable as we can and then we may have a chance on waking up to the reality we are in.

US government wants to spy on your computer

Once again we see one administration taking away our rights and the next expanding upon it. This time it is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. Bush started it in 2007 and classified it because of National Security reasons. While the trade agreement is not finalized what we know about the treaty is frightening.

It would allow border searches of laptops, phones, mp3 players; agents could even go through your luggage looking for illegal cds. Unfortunately they always could and did as we found out in August, 2008 when the Homeland Security revealed that Federal agents can search laptop computers or any other electronic device like cell phones or mp3 players. And they could take them somewhere else for however long they wanted. For no other reason but that it was their policy. The best part? The ‘policy’ was upheld by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit in San Francisco. The Washington Post

They’re saying they can rifle through all the information in a traveler’s laptop without having a smidgen of evidence that the traveler is breaking the law,” said Greg Nojeim, senior counsel at the Center for Democracy and Technology. Notably, he said, the policies “don’t establish any criteria for whose computer can be searched.”
