    More on those “nice folks next door.”

    E. J. Kimball’s NCJA “roots.”

    With folks like E.J. Kimball at the FBI, is there any wonder that the “mother of all false flag ops” –the bombing of Pan Am 109 over Lockerbie, Scotland– was the work of CIA/FBI provocateurs?

    The Lockerbie truth according to John Pilger.

    That should read “Pan Am 103.”

    The new retroreflective STOP signs– mandated by the Federal Highway Administration to be in place by 2015 –are rare in Mississippi rural areas where they are needed most. And Mississippi law enforcement and corporate metal scrap dealers have done nothing interdict the theft of aluminum traffic signs and cast iron manhole covers. Mississippi police and sheriffs are too busy busting pot users and engaging in high speed chases after shoplifters.

    A high speed chase gone bad. I know this sounds “racist,” but a “skert” black man will run . That’s why the cops call’em runners—they rarely turn and fight. And the claim by cops that the shoplifters attempted to “run over” them is laughable. That “attempted to tun over them” argument is the claim that Miami Police used for their high speed chase last Memorial Day when a fleeing suspect was gunned down with over 60 bullets fired into his car after it had stopped.

    Where’s everybody?

    Promenading at the Mardis Gras?

    A lesser known non-hit for the Fat Man…looking for his Zulu Queen.

    skert as defined by The Urban Dictionary

    …to drive really fast and out of control, especially around blind corners of the parking garage, or running from the po po.

    Another “dragging” incident last week with black-on-black shooting.

    So, “care and control” of a vehicle is why an intoxicated Randy Travis was arrested while sitting in his parked car at a church parking lot?

    “So this is fairly terrifying. But remember — debt doesn’t matter!”

    The only thing terrifying about that chart is that anyone would believe anything the hacks at AEI say about what is going to happen in 60 years.

    I figured you guys would all love this one from my neck of the woods:

    Long story short, off duty state trooper gets popped for doing 102 mph and blows a .16 on the breathalyzer…and doesn’t go to jail. Sent home, on leave, with pay of course.

    Alright, it’s been two days without new Agitator content!

    You’re killing us, Radley. Killing us!

    @37 – What economic results from the UK would you like to point to in terms of disproving this?

    I suspect that we’ll soon be getting photos of Mardis Gras in Prague.

    Munich’s Mardis Gras is the best and the food there is wundervoll!

    I’m guessing you’re trying to dismiss this idea that debt destroys economies. It does. It creates inflation. It weakens your currency. It robs the private sector of capital. It forces a governments expenditures to go towards interest payments instead of services, or heaven forbid, back to the taxpayer.

    These are the things that put America and the UK in the hole more than once throughout recent history. The last economic collapse wasn’t from a lack of government spending. It was from government over inflating the housing sector and keeping interest rates far too low.

    You failed to mention that it was woman driver. Not that it matters.

    Trump this!

  19. #19 |  Leon Wolfeson | 

    @67 – Absolutely incorrect. Debt *over a long period* is a bad thing. However, having a stalled economy is worse than short-term spending.

    *Austerity* (as opposed to measured cuts) destroys economies.

    The collapse ongoing in England is because the government is suppressing demand. (Oh, and creating a huge unemployment problem while at the same time using the language of labelling unemployed people as “scroungers”).

    Most of the “cuts” being made in Britain will cost people FAR more in the longer run. (Classic example – they closed the central body which set procurement standards for school IT. This is costing schools £4 million a year, and has fragmented IT provision…)

    As for dining in at a Bavarian restuarant at Mardis Gras, I think I’d go for the New Orleans -style vegan Rice and beans.

    Toronto streets are so dangerous. This is the town where the former AG ran over a guy on a bicycle 3 times (backed up twice to hit him again), and it’s even on video (you can find it on youtube quite easily), and charges were dropped. He was “afraid for his wife”. My father had a defendant that hit someone 3 times in “self defense”, yeah that did not wash with the jury.

    Then the next mayor said cyclists should just stay off the streets. yeah, I think Toronto, like Alabama, is just a place where no one else will want to go soon. Except in Alabama they used to kill people, on Toronto streets they actually are.
