Taxes are a necessity however…

.

.

Another rant that I, the Disgruntled Old Coot, left at a comment section following a news story about taxes. Unlike some of the monolithic corporate-owned media Web sites the place I left my comment has not banned me form commenting. Yay!!!

.

And here is my ranting:

.

It is a crime against We, the People to have any tax system that is inequitable or so hard to comprehend that even extensively-trained folks who make that tax system their life’s work can not understand all the ramifications. Back in the 1980s Consumer Reports (CR) hired ten different types of tax experts including an entire large firm that put its amassed mind-power to work on the needed information to prepare a federal form CR provided. Every result differed and the differences were great at the extremes. I forget the actual figures but that proved to me that the tax system is unAmerican and a crime against We, the People.

It continues, I fear, because the current taxing systems allow politicians to control society and the multitude of jobs created to assist in meeting those tax laws are beneficial to folks in the upper ranks of the social-economic hierarchy. Again, yet another method of wealth transference from the masses of common folks to those deemed deserving by our exalted master ruling class and their politician and bureaucrat lackeys.

And the scam continues and the masses are inundated with indoctrination that as things are is how they are supposed to be. Love it or leave it.

.

.

And the scam continues, the class war abides and the relentless propaganda keeps a huge mass of common folks accepting of the systems, entities and people who are spitting upon those masses.

A day of reckoning will hopefully arrive in the future. Maybe the enemies of the common folks will capitulate and allow a more equitable USA to emerge from the ashes of a class war that is allowed to die.

Disgruntled I am… Damn

.

.

Below is a post I left at an MGTOW  (Men Going Their Own Way) message board.

 

If the guy purposefully left the kid in the hot car to die… destroy him.

But, how do you prove it. I do not know the circumstances BUT… it is often the females involved with these events and I do not recall any female being reported about in the manner this event occurred.

Is it the social bias against males that makes a male more likely to be considered evil? Is the oft-mentioned “pussy pass” an actual reality? If so, where are the equality-demanding feminists who should be screaming their outrage that females are given preferential treatment in regards to the negative aspects of life?

Do the dames demand that they obtain only the good of adult life but by their actions and inactions convey a silent demand that females continue to receive their preferential treatment throughout society?

Police probe death of Georgia toddler

.

.

It was a tragedy from the outset: a toddler found dead apparently after being left alone for hours in a hot car, a distraught father blaming himself and facing serious criminal charges.

Now, Cobb County, Georgia, police imply there is more — much more — to the story.

“Much has changed about the circumstances leading up to the death of this 22-month-old since it was first reported,” Cobb County Police Sgt. Dana Pierce told CNN. He would not elaborate, citing an ongoing investigation, but his words made it clear this was not just another case of a young life left and lost to heat exposure in a hot car.

“I’ve been in law enforcement for 34 years. What I know about this case shocks my conscience as a police officer, a father and a grandfather,” said Pierce.

Initially, Justin Ross Harris, 33, told Cobb County police that he accidentally left his toddler son in his SUV on Wednesday. According to police, Harris told them he had forgotten to drop the child off at a day care center before going to work.

Harris initially told police he realized that he’d left the boy strapped in his car seat as he drove home Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators say patrol officers were in the area of the Akers Mill Square shopping center in the suburban Atlanta county when dispatchers received the calls from witnesses around 4:20 p.m.

“He kept saying, ‘What have I done? What have I done?’” Dale Hamilton told CNN affiliate WSB-TV.

“Within moments of the first responders getting to the scene and doing their job and questions began to be asked about the moments that led up to their arrival at the scene, some of those answers were not making sense to the first responders,” Pierce of Cobb County Police said.

On Thursday, Harris pleaded not guilty to felony murder and cruelty to children charges. He’s being held without bond at the Cobb County Jail.

Held without bond. Damn it… the constant mention at this MGTOW site about broads bonded out or even not jailed for horrible crimes are common.

But… accuse an evil, vile, horrible, filthy, disgusting MALE of a crime and toss him in a cell where he is unable to access as good of a defense as somebody not locked away.

And, in the USA, while in jail, the door is wide open for the jail house-snitch to attempt to obtain extra privileges or a reduction in sentence by LYING and creating a false statement that the snitch supposedly heard the accused defendant say to him.

Do a Web search to discover how common this type of false accusation occurs. And innocent folks have been severely harmed by a well-known action that prosecutor’s are too often quick to use to make a conviction.

In the USA I fear that actual guilt or innocence is of little importance. Wealth acquisition by those earning a living from the legal system is of prime importance followed by career advancement and thus higher wealth amounts and that is typically done by prosecutors by having an excellent conviction rate.

My wish… when it is PROVEN a prosecutor has purposefully sent an innocent man to prison or even to an execution that filthy bastard should be hanged in front of the state capitol.

That will never happen because it is only the lower class nobodies whose lives are destroyed by the USA legal scam system.

The wealthy and influential are not subject to those travesties.

THE USA IS A HUGE SCAM

.

.

.

Damn, I AM Disgruntled

.

.

Disgruntled I am and maybe rightly so. However, I AM grateful that the USA is generally a benevolent regime that even though it does use murder to control the masses of common folks at least it does so in relatively few numbers.

That Stalin scum used his lackeys to murder many millions of common folks. Our ruling masters mostly control their hired lackeys filling the many positions within an enormous number of systems and the bureaucracies within. Mostly.

Once in awhile the lackeys are turned loose to commit mayhem and send a message to the masses that to defy “the system” can be fatal. USA history, distant and recent, gives ample examples that the entrenched systems making the elites and their systems so powerful and profitable to those elites will murder even innocent babies to strike fear into the common folks.

Obey or die. A reality that can be found across the planet… even in the USA.

The South Park TV show comes to mind… when Kenny is killed. That scene and the elite’s actions brings forth an enormous… “You Bastards.”

Admittedly, those often well-indoctrinated lackeys do act of their own accord and are not directly ordered to murder innocent civilians.. the common folks. Elites and other higher-ups never seem to die at the hands of overzealous law enforcement who when they engage in mayhem are best referred to as jack-booted thugs.

The systems and bureaucracies the train and guide law enforcement has literally brainwashed SOME of those hired lackeys to despise those others they are in contention with. Toss in the increasing militarization of the police forces with the indoctrination/brainwashing and observe the news. A steady stream of innocent citizens mowed down.

Folks… in other posts I mention the absolute need for law enforcement and the immense value they are to society. I only condemn the relatively small percentage of negatives coming from law enforcement. What I fear most is that the highly-trained, well-equipped and enormous number of law enforcement personnel can be quickly made via a few orders from above into a formidable army to force the masses of common folks to obey those jack-booted thugs and, in turn, the ruling masters perched atop the social-economic hierarchy. The true ruling masters work through their politician lackeys who work through the appointed bureaucrats below and the power flows downhill  until it stops at the end of the weapon the well-armed lackey has aimed at you and your loved ones.

Such a complex topic. It is this extreme complexity of modern society that eases the control of the masses by a relatively few folks. Toss in the life-long immersion within the most effective propaganda systems ever created and thus we have a USA I believe the original Founders would be impressed by… and would then commence the requires actions to initiate Revolutionary War Two.

Below is an e-mail I sent today that prompted this blog entry but my wandering thoughts within my aging,withered brain led me astray so, I suppose, this entry may be two separate entries. I will let you figure it out.

 

Have a wonderful week and, remember, the propaganda surrounds you and all of us and is relentless and it does not have the best interests of the common folks propelling that indoctrination. Defy the tyranny screwing you and all you care about and the huge mass of common folks.

Mad Mountain,

My memory varies… was it you on the phone mentioning washing car windows to accrue wealth?

If so… maybe you can relate to the following:
“Rag Doll” is regarded by many as the greatest achievement of the Four Seasons. The story behind the origin of the song has been told many times. Gaudio was on the way to a recording session and his car was stopped at an extremely long traffic light in Hell’s Kitchen (an area of New York City). Often, kids would wash the car windows during the long waits and ask for some change. In Gaudio’s case, a scruffy little girl washed his window. When Gaudio went to give her change, all he had was a $10 bill. After a moment’s hesitation, he gave her the bill because he had to give her something. The astonished look on her face stayed with him and inspired the subsequent song.”
The 4 Seasons was a popular pop group of the early 1960s… a different era I remember portions of… especially as the 60s crept by and my body grew though the mind lagged behind.

The above anecdote is embedded in this Web page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Gaudio

Oh, that $10 bill….

Using this site: http://www.measuringworth.com/uscompare/ let’s estimate the relative worth of $10 back then to what $10 is worth today. The real value is different than relative value and thanks to inflation the common folks of every era pay a high price the wealthy ruling elites never feel pain from. In fact, inflation is great for those who borrow huge amounts of wealth that you and I will never have access to and use borrowed money to make new money. That scheme is referred to as using OPM… “Other People’s Money.” Inflation allows the borrower to pay the money back in the future when the dollar is worth less than when the money was borrowed and put to work. It is a scheme easily available to the already wealthy and especially to the wealthy AND connected folks… the elites of the country assist each other in their ongoing scams… even though those scams are technically legal what about the morality? “Screw unto others before others screw unto you?” The elite-owned media tends to avoid mentioning these schemes and scams. It is better the masses remain ignorant and with the propaganda systems working constantly to convince the masses that as things are is correct and proper. And the most effective propaganda systems ever created DO indoctrinate a large percentage of the populace for the schemes and scams to continue.

Here we go…..Rag Doll was released in 1964 so that is the base year. The linked-to site is one of many but it is the most “truthful” in that direct comparisons of money’s worth across the years is difficult.

A common method is to compare what it costs to buy one item long ago and the amount needed today. However, prices vary. When I was young a 25-inch color TV was beyond the reach of many working-class families. Due to technology and other advances, what used to be a VERY expensive item has dropped in cost dramatically.

Anyway… from the page peeking at money:

“In 2013, the relative value of $10.00 from 1964 ranges from $57.90 to $245.00. “

Check out the Web site if curious about a complex topic whose complexity assists the few to bamboozle the many.
Across the planet hierarchies exist with those at the upper levels of those pyramid-shaped hierarchies purposefully making societies and all they contain purposefully as complex as possible. That complexity allows the few to lord over the many and skim vast amounts of wealth from the masses of common folks.

Lesson over. Lucky you, no test. Just the realization that We, the People are immersed within vast amounts of propaganda and that a multitude of ongoing scams strip the common folks creating that wealth and send a large percentage of the wealth ever-upwards to the elites.

Adding to the costs we bear are the HUGE systems that the elites create then pay hired lackeys to operate. Yes, Mr. Mountain… we are paying to be skimmed and scammed. What a racket!!!

However, we ARE lucky. Our ruling masters for various reasons are not as evil as the ruling masters in other places and times.

North Korea, Stalin’s USSR. Hitler’s Germany and Pol Pot’s Cambodia. Evil war lords.
Our general USA culture assists in keeping our masters benevolent.

However… that CAN change over time. Who knows what the future holds?

Those of us among We, the People who are aware of history and that the future is unknowable want the right to bear arms to remain untouched despite the negative aspects of the mentally ill using those weapons for evil. The masses of commoners having weaponry MAY be what keeps our ruling masters relatively non-evil…. though USA history DOES show where past elites sent their hired lackeys to harm, main and evil murder common folks standing up against elite tyranny. Even innocent women and children have been murdered but that is yet another area typically glossed over inside the USA.

End of lesson.
Disgruntled Old Coot

General Mumble

Hello human herd members entering my realm.

Below is a rant I left at a message board. I place it here because that’s just the kind of rotten Disgruntled Old Coot I am. Revel in it.

.

The southern Indiana hill country is somewhat akin to southern Missouri. Both areas had an influx of Scots-Irish hillbilly white trash evacuating Appalachia in the 1800s.

Possessing a general sub-culture that did not consider self-reflection and education as valuable entities those folks are akin to the hewers of wood mentioned in the Bible that allows a peek at past social norms.

Folks, I lived among the La Raze crowd for many years and now I am immersed in the White trash hillbilly crowd.

And both groups spit out vile spawn at a rate that will eventually overwhelm the subcultures that create and maintain civil, social, advancing societies.

In the USA the barbarians are encouraged to swarm and multiply.

Just spewing what I have observed  in a life never hindered by a working life within a cubicle.

Fear for your great-grand-kids.

The only store will be Wal-Mart and will Taco Hell actually win the fast-food wars?

And you will be immersed, all of your progeny, by what I as a working-poor societal dreg has been experiencing my entire life.

What a long strange trip it’s been.

.

.

Interpret that mumbling as you will. The generalities are hopefully evident for those of you with a decent level of reading comprehension ability. That means most of you will be baffled to a certain extent by my message and it is likely most of you will misinterpret my message.

That may be my fault for not communicating my thoughts in an accurate manner. The fault may lie with you and me.

Bah!!! Who cares. Some of you have life experiences that will allow you to nod your head in agreement and utter that the Old Coot has it right.

Have a wonderful week and, remember, the ruling elites and their lackeys bombard you with their filthy self-serving propaganda your entire life.

Realize that and cast off their tyrannical propaganda with all your ability and inform everybody you know about the propaganda intended to coerce you into being an obedient serf of the ruling elites and their systems along with all their hired lackeys who operate the systems that control the masses of We, the People.

 

Have a wonderful week!!!

Henry

Hopefully Henry meant something to somebody. I doubt there is anyone alive who carries a memory of Henry that was passed down to somebody alive today who knew Henry when he was among the living.

Tonopah Cemetery (old)

.

The old Tonopah Cemetery was started May 7, 1901 with the burial of John Randel Weeks at the site (The body of Weeks was moved to the new cemetery in 1911). The cemetery served Tonopah until April 1911, when due to the growth of the town and mining in the area, expansion was no longer possible. A new site was then opened a mile west of town.

Many of Tonopah’s pioneer resident are buried in the cemetery which contains over 300 bodies. Among them are many victims of the 1902 “Tonopah Plague”. (It has never been determined what the “Tonopah Plague” was and during the winter of 1901-02, it claimed the lives of over 30 men and caused a mass exodus from the area.)

.

.

Follow the link above to read the rest of the introduction and the link that leads to the burial records listed alphabetically.

Curious I wandered the list and saw one titled “Henry” with no other name listed. I noticed that nobody had left a “memorial” for dead and gone Henry so I left my always-used peace sign logo. Henry will likely never know but who knows? I don’t and I do not believe any mortal human knows.

A belief, even a conviction, no matter how firmly held, does not necessarily mean that the truth is within that feeling. I am an open-minded agnostic ready to believe what I interpret to be fact… as much as I can deduce a fact to be.

I neither condemn or follow anybody claiming to be the bearer of TRUTH… especially when that truth is related to anything within the religion sphere.

But, who knows. Maybe Henry is aware in some manner and knows that a Disgruntled Old Coot noticed his on-line “grave” was lacking notice so notice I provided. Furthermore… Henry has gained an entry in my blog. With 7 billion-plus alive now and who knows how many billions of dead folks for Henry to appear here is greater odds than winning the BIG Lottery. Congratulations, Henry. No one alive today likely knows anything about you but your “essence” IS alive, so to speak, and we honor you today by recognize that you existed.

Follow the link below and take a look at Henry’s on-line grave:

Henry

Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

I assume that Henry is the fellow’s first name but I believe there are folks with the last name of Henry.

I wonder what attracted Henry to Tonopah, Nevada?

Henry could have been many things… a good guy, a bad guy, a “regular Joe” trying to earn a living and meeting each day head-on.

Maybe he was a gambler or a bartender or crawled into the depths of those silver mines and scooped out the ore. Maybe he ran a brothel or a gambling den or repaired equipment. Whatever Henry did we will never know. The mystery of Henry remains.

Follow the link below for a history of Tonopah, Nevada:

Thus ends the tale that is not a tale since no information to create a tale exists. All we have is a name. One name. And the name is Henry.

All the best to you, Henry… if it matters. Maybe you have entered a state of complete total non-existence and that tiny flicker of time you occupied is all that encompassed you.

But… well… I don’t know. But whatever is the TRUTH let us take at least a brief moment of our own time and send a though to or of or about Henry.

Sand Callahan the unknown story

.

.

Human history is a continuous story of conflict. Personal, tribal and, as human numbers increased that conflict grew in size to the national level with multi-millions of people endeavoring to defeat the other human alliance.

I am not here to condemn human events of the past. Well, some were so barbaric that I would spit upon those truly evil vermin but I generally shun writing about that patently evil stuff though I will mention it in passing if needed to make sense of other things I write about.

This post is to make aware that a grave is located in far western Kansas in a place known as Fort Wallace Cemetery.

I learned about the one-time existence of Sand Callahan while browsing the Find-a-grave Web site to learn about the scout William Averill “Medicine Bill” Comstock.  Virtually “walking” through the Fort Wallace cemetery I saw what is the spot where Sand Callahan is buried or, at least where he is memorialized. It is possible Sand was reburied in the national cemetery at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

Some people consider the lifeless body of the departed to be of minor to significant importance. To each his own. My view is that it is the memories left behind that are critical. I do not give a damn about a pile of dead cells that once held a living, thinking person. Do whatever is handy when my life ends… just get the body somewhere so folks don’t have to smell the stinky thing as it rots into its component parts that make great fertilizer for plants.
