By way ofintroduction, My internet handle is cz85b. Reading this board will educate you in my political philosophy. I have links to the message boards I frequent and write my opinions on. There are links to some of the most insightful writings I have read, and as time goes by, there will be more essays added to the various lists. I have titled this page "The Knowledge;" not to be arrogant, but to serve as a reminder that Knowledge is BOTH power and freedom.

The title OF THIS PAGE is a link. It will take you to one of the pages I do research on.. My Opinions are ONLY as good as the FACTS  that back it up.


The issue of Iraq


Unfortunately, we gave up the option to leave Iraq the moment we decided to remove Saddam Hussein from power.  Like Yugoslavia's Josip Broz Tito, Saddam was a strong dictator who was able to keep the warring factions of the Sunnis and the Shiites from civil war.   Whenever Shiites or Kurds rose against him, or did something he did not like, he butchered them!  



If "Pro" is the opposite of "Con," Is "Progress" the opposite of "Congress??"

2006 Campaign Ads

The public has become numb to the lies and deceptions that fill most campaign ads.  Do we have choice in the United States?

The 'Centrist' Position on the War in Iraq

by Glenn Greenwald

This Washington Post article on the inner workings of the bizarrely revered Baker-Hamilton Commission is notable for several reasons, the first of which is that neoconservatives are stomping their feet and whining loudly because they feel that their Great Wisdom and Expertise are being unfairly ignored:

The " worth reading " rest of the story

When I began reading the story, the contempt, by this author, for any opinion other than "GET OUT OF IRAQ RIGHT THIS INSTANT!" was overwhelming!

Current events discussion groups, like CNN and FOX (can we call them "NEWS" channels anymore?) have the Democrats on, since they won the election, discussing the 9-11 commission's recommendations.. "Mainstream Democrats are now saying that MOST of the commission's recommendations have been implemented! This, the nuanced version of what they said just before the election, that US Citizens were in danger because of the lack of implementation by the Republicans in Congress, and the current administration... The Nuance comes when the Democrats come out saying things like most of the recommendations have been implimented, but the ones that that were not implemented are too costly, and that they would be too much of a burden on the government to make them effective, so they would not pursue those... EVER....

Democrats are also stating that we will NOT be leaving in Iraq, and they are going to have this NEW "blue ribbon panel" to blame for their UTTER FAILURE to the people who supposedly voted for them in for that reason.

It amazes me to read articles like this one from Lew Rockwell... It amazes me because the author really does strike me as intelligent.. I have to wonder what it was that he expected to happen.. Change?? From a Republican or a Democrat? PLEASE!

Intellectuals vs The Founders

Some people have managed to draw conclusions about Our Nation's Founders' intentions that are simply wrong.  These people, when asked, were UNABLE to answer why it took as longas it did for the states to ratify the Constitution of the United States

I attempted to explain it, US History tried to explain it, but to some people, facts and truth are meaningless.  In short, it took a great deal of time, because our Founders were terrified of the prospect that someone would read something that was not there, IF they spelled out our "God given" rights, in the Constitution.

Imagine our founders being concerned that politicians would try to take our rights!  Spelled out in our Declaration of Independence,

(Link here,to read it) are the issues that forced them to leave England, forging a new nation.  The founders were a group of people who were so confident in the knowledge that if they included The Bill of Rights, politicians would try to take rights away from the citizens, that they were reluctant to spell them out on paper! Would CNN call these people "Visionary?" Probably not.  Would they be called "paranoid?"  Most definitely! Our society, today, does not seem to want freedom.  Why do I say this?  Because if they did, there would be more outrage as congress takes that which the CREATOR endowed us with!

Some have seen a way out of this... Decent, Law Abiding Citizens, and this means ANYONE who would obey the law, need to START patrolling their neighborhoods. We, as citizens, need to look out for each other, because our police force can only do so much.  Freedom IS NOT FREE, It requires work and vigilance.  Our government has been taking on this work and allowing us to believe it is being vigilant.  However, our government is lying to us!  We have elected officials who SWORE to defend the Constitution,  actually working hard to destroy that which they swore to defend!  To further their cause, they have limited our right to free speech, and they have been attacking our right to bear arms / self defense.

Alexander Hamilton, in "The Federalist" wrote:
"The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed."

Truer words were not spoken.  When We, THE PEOPLE, start taking our streets back, start educating our children, and stop allowing big government to get away with STEALING our rights, we will have a government afraid of the people, not people afraid of government!  

There will be improvements, in our nation,  the likes of which have not been seen!

Here are some Enlightened Essays contributed


More places for political commentary!!

Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 500 employees and has the following statistics:

*29 have been accused of spousal abuse
*10 have been arrested for fraud
(add 1 for Mezvinski who says he isinnocent of FRAUD by reason of insanity!!!)
*19 have been accused of writing bad checks
*117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at leased businesses
*3 have done time for assault
*71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
*14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
*8 have been arrested for shoplifting
*24 are currently defendants in lawsuits
*84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year

I probably shouldn't go into how many have been charged with having sex with minors, both homosexual and heterosexual, because the number seems to be growing with each election cycle!


Can you guess which organization this is?


It's the 535 members of the United States Congress. The same group that crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line!!! This info was as of April 2002... with some recent additions
