Hidden History of the Human Race with Klaus Dona

Klaus Dona shows off artifacts that date as far back as 10,000 BC, including the underwater pyramids off the coast of southern Japan. Are the origins extraterrestrial or made by the hands of man? One thing is for sure, Klaus' side show provides evidence of advanced cultures living on Earth 10,000 years ago and maybe later. What happened to them is a big question mark...

Check out this video with the folks from Project Avalon interviewing Klaus Dona...

You Want Fries With That?; McDonalds Fields 1 Million Applications



McDonalds was always considered a shitty job and the lowest rung on the capitalism food chain. That's where the term "McJob" was derived. Even within the fast food industry, McDs was the worst of the worst to work in. McD's economic apologists often harp on the fact that McD's will hire anyone (regardless of age, gender or race) without any experience. Of course, those lenient hiring practices explained why they always fucked up your order at the drive-thru, because if you were able to breathe and had no qualms about making minimum wage, then McDs would hire you... no questions asked.

A "McJob" is a derogatory word used describe a dead-end service sector job in which you're completely dispensable and actually lucky to be getting minimum wage. Lord knows that if America didn't have a min-wage law on the books, McDs and other evil fast food corporations would be paying their entry level McWorkers half as much.

When I was in high school, during the first George Bush's reign, the average age of a McWorker was under 20 years old. By the time my Gen-X classmates graduated college at the end of the Clinton era, the median age rose to 22. And in Obama's America of hope and change? The median age of a McWorker is almost 30. McD's used to be a job for pimply-faced teenagers, but the Golden Arches have become a last source of income for many economically-screwed adults. I'm afraid that over the next few years, the median age of a McWorker will continue to rise.

I know that times are tougher than tough in Middle America with surging unemployment numbers (substantially higher than the MSM reported), but holy shit, did 1 million people really apply for jobs at McDonalds?

Yes, it true according to McDonalds Hires 62,000, Turns Away Over 938,000 Applicants For Minimum Wage, Part-Time Jobs.

With 40,000 available positions, McDs hired 62,000... many of whom held college degrees, and a few had multiple degrees. Dare I say, the educational level at McD's is rising with the average age?

With millions of unemployed Americans on the brink of desperation, McD's might have been the only thing that prevented a wide-scale uprising. If Obama and the federales don't want millions of pissed-off unemployed Americans protesting in the streets, then they better open up more McD's franchises.

Even McJobs in America are becoming scarce and well-paying jobs with health insurance have become proverbial pipe dreams for college graduates. Seems like the service sector is the only one hiring. I used to tend bar, so I know what it's like to bust my hump and hustle on tips. My future as a freelance writer is murky, so I'm anticipating heading behind the bar at some point in my future.

Are there any jobs in America, or do we need a yearly census to create more jobs? Manufacturing jobs were shipped out to China over a decade ago. IT departments and CSR centers were shipped out to India. So what's left to do in America? Service jobs. Barista at Starbucks or flipping burgers at McDs are the only jobs that American corporations can't outsource. If it was profitable to fly in workers from China and India to make Big Macs and double chocolate frappicinos, those malevolent corporations would do it.

Then again, at the Jack in the Box down the street, they installed a self-service kiosk and eliminated one cashier. How long before McDs has robots flipping burgers and screwing up your order?

Welcome to 21st Century America. Do you want fries with that?

Wheelbarrow of Weimar Marks or More Rum?


If the U.S. dollar collapses (we're almost there), then what's the point of waking up early every day, keeping an eye on investments, working my ass off as a freelance writer, and saving up to protect whatever assets I have left? Because it's all going to get flushed down the toilet anyway?

And save my money? Not in America. I can't find a savings account that will offer me more than 1% in interest. What a fucking joke! So much for rewarding Americans for saving their money. If I want to my money to grow and have a shot at outgunning inflation and debasement, then I have to put it in play in the casinos and Ponzi Schemes on Wall Street.

So if that's my conundrum -- why am I not blowing the rest of my fiat money and partying it up? And I'm not talking a party "like it's 1999", but like more a full-blown rager like the "end of the world" party?

This is a dangerous internal dialogue. I'm not one to wallow in self-pity or get caught navel gazing, which is why I want to quickly snap out of this depressive funk and shift gears... to the high-gear of the soul. If all indications are suggesting an imminent collapse, then why am I not going out with a bang?

This new reasoning is not an excuse to justify why I've been drinking rum since 1pm.... 12:40pm to be precise. That's when I "officially" gave up on today. I woke up thinking I could change the world, but I didn't even get past noon before the reality of the situation sunk in.

What's the point?

Maybe it's time I just give up the fight and stay perpetually drunk, stoned, and schwasted... until my money runs out. At least then I can say I enjoyed every single buck before the USD officially collapses, and that way I won't have to wheel around a wheelbarrow of utterly worthless Benjamins.

The Grateful Dead lyric sums up my situation the best: "I'm going to hell in a bucket, but at least I'm enjoying the ride."

Except, I'm not enjoying the ride! So I better do something about it. While I think about a new plan of action, it's time for another cocktail as financial Armageddon approaches.

The Waffles Report: Hacking Playstation



Has anyone heard about the Playstation hacker intrusion and shutdown?

You might think it had something to do with Anonymous declaring war on Sony. However I have not heard them take credit for shutting down the network. You should read the nerd rage comments in the article too. My favorite...

Hollywood Apocalyptica: World War Z


I'll admit, I was skeptical when I first picked up Max Brooks' novel World War Z. I'm not big on zombies, I thought the first season of The Walking Dead was "meh" at best and when it comes to apocalyptic fiction, my range is pretty polarized between explosive popcorn fluff and bleak naturalism. What I found was a world that satistfied both ends of the spectrum, and I blew through the book's 350 or so pages in maybe five hours.

Naturally, World War Z has been picked up for film adaptation by the Hollywood machine. Although Brad Pitt gave the project a significant boost late last summer when he committed to star, Paramount still balked at the picture's $125 million price tag. They elected to share the burden with a triumverate of outside financiers including Skydance Productions. The four-year old shingle based at the Santa Monica Airport is run by David Ellison, the son of Oracle founder and CEO Larry Ellison. When Dad is the sixth-richest man in the world with a $28 billion net worth, it's pretty easy to get a $200 million line of revolving credit from JP Morgan and a four-year studio deal.

The marketplace is pretty rife with zombie material at the moment, a subject Deadline's Nikki Finke took on when the co-financing deal was announced. With talent like Pitt and director Marc Forster at the helm, though, I'm more optimistic about World War Z than another installment of Resident Evil.

The film is casting right now (The Killing's Mireille Enos signed on today to play Pitt's wife) and cameras are scheduled to roll this summer.

Too Big to Fail Trailer

Mainstream Hollywood's first attempt at a non-doc take on the financial crisis will hit the small screen this May with the premiere of HBO Films' Too Big to Fail. Directed by Curtis Hanson (8 Mile, L.A. Confidential) and based on Andrew Ross Sorkin's book, Too Big to Fail goes inside the collapse of Lehman Brothers, the domino effect on the markets, and the government response.



Here's a look at a few of the giants of big finance featured in the film and the actors portraying them:

Paul Giamatti: Ben Bernanke
Billy Crudup: Tim Geithner
James Woods: Dick Fuld (genius casting, IMO)
William Hurt: Hank Paulson
Bill Pullman: Jamie Dimon
Tony Shalhoub: John Mack
Matthew Modine: John Thain
Ed Asner: Warren Buffett
Cynthia Nixon: Michele Davis
Dan Hedaya: Barney Frank

Max Keiser: Murderers and Martyrs

In the latest edition of the Keiser Report, Max is extra hot-and-bothered over Sen. Carl Levin's report about how Goldman Sachs manipulated the mortgage markets, and how Lloyd Blankfien possibly pejured himself during Congressional hearings following the financial collapse of '08. Seriously, what little is left of his hair was practically standing on end. In the back half, Keiser's rant against financial corruption continues with credit derivatives expert Janet Tavakoli.

Hollywood Apocalyptica: Battle L.A.


It takes a lot to get me into an actual movie theater these days and pay $12 to share breathing room with a few hundred L.A. douchebags and their beeping texting devices, but an honest-to God, rock-em-sock-em, so-bad-its-good disaster flick is one of the few cinematic pleasures that will lead me to suck it up and deal with the westside's worst. Battle: Los Angeles was one of them, and although it didn't ascend to the lofty heights of Independence Day or even Volcano, I'm a sucker for watching my hometown invaded by reptilian-looking aliens while Aaron Eckhart emotes just enough to ensure himself another paycheck picture by asking a ten-year old boy to be "his little marine." With a domestic gross of nearly $82 million, there's a significant chance we'll be seeing a sequel in the not-too-distant future. Battle: Shanghai anyone?

Battle: Los Angeles received only a 21% "fresh" rating from the top critics on Rotten Tomatoes, placing it behind even the critically reviled remake of Arthur and the stoner comedy Your Highness. But of all those crankypants purveyors of celluloid high art, I found myself agreeing the most with one Mr. Bill Goodykoontz (that's his real name, I'm not making this shit up) of the Arizona Republic:
As it stands, Battle: Los Angeles is good dumb fun. A little less talking and a little weirder alien and it might have been something more.
If you're a disaster flick aficionado like me, the two-hour romp through an exploding Santa Monica war zone will certainly hold your attention. Natives will especially enjoy watching the intergalactic reptilians waste the 10 freeway.

Battle: Los Angeles is still playing nationwide and will hit DVD in June.

Matt Taibbi: The Real Housewives of Wall Street

Matt Taibbi wrote another great piece in Rolling Stone about how fucked up the Fed is and where TARP monies went. Here is a sample:
Most Americans know about that budget. What they don't know is that there is another budget of roughly equal heft, traditionally maintained in complete secrecy. After the financial crash of 2008, it grew to monstrous dimensions, as the government attempted to unfreeze the credit markets by handing out trillions to banks and hedge funds. And thanks to a whole galaxy of obscure, acronym-laden bailout programs, it eventually rivaled the "official" budget in size — a huge roaring river of cash flowing out of the Federal Reserve to destinations neither chosen by the president nor reviewed by Congress, but instead handed out by fiat by unelected Fed officials using a seemingly nonsensical and apparently unknowable methodology.

The Waffles Report: Project Video Gamers Nearing Completion



One of the hardest things about war is convincing people to act brutally ruthless toward other human beings. In the past, leaders used tools such as religion, love of country and scare tactic. A think tank, tasked by the Pentagon to figure ways around this, has been grooming the next generation of killers: Video Gamers.

If you do not believe this than take a look at some of the items being used in Afghanistan.

These new age war machines are custom made for the X-Box generation. You might have a hard time convincing an idealistic young kid to bomb the fuck out of some orphanage or mosque, but put him in front of a video game screen and he will knock out any target.

Abstracting the physical act of killing from reality will give a whole new dimension to wars. Instead of hurting people, you are taking out pixels. I would not be surprised of the next generation of military hardware has a "High Score" and achievements for "100 killed in one shot"... *DING*DING*DING* you win! Lights. Sounds. Achievements. High Scores. Pixels destroyed.

The ultimate killing machines are not marines, they are video gamers. Fear the kids for they hold your destruction in their little calloused thumbs!

Matt Taibbi, Tax Cuts for the Rich, and Paul Ryan's Balls


Paul Ryan's budget proposal is a ploy to get the middle class to eat shit, while the uber-rich have their taxes trimmed from 35% to 25%. But don't listen to what I have to say, because Tax Cuts for the Rich on the Backs of the Middle Class; or, Paul Ryan Has Balls is a top notch piece of political writing from Matt Taibbi...
Paul Ryan, the Republican Party’s latest entrant in the seemingly endless series of young, prickish, over-coiffed, anal-retentive deficit Robespierres they’ve sent to the political center stage in the last decade or so, has come out with his new budget plan. All of these smug little jerks look alike to me – from Ralph Reed to Eric Cantor to Jeb Hensarling to Rand Paul and now to Ryan, they all look like overgrown kids who got nipple-twisted in the halls in high school, worked as Applebee’s shift managers in college, and are now taking revenge on the world as grownups by defunding hospice care and student loans and Sesame Street. They all look like they sleep with their ties on, and keep their feet in dress socks when doing their bi-monthly duty with their wives.

As reported on The Daily What, the Hacker group Anonymous decided to target the Sony corporation.
After the monster corp attacked PS3 hackers George Hotz, A.K.A. Geohot with an epic legal battle and had the police raid Graf_Chokolo last month, Anonymous has decided to teach SONY "a few important lessons that your mother forgot."
I actually think this is pretty cool.

Sony is a rich ass corporation and the only ones that are going to be embarrassed or hurt here are Sony executives. Sony has been asking for this for years with their stupid law suits and locking down of peoples purchases with their stupid "protection." I think they are one of the bad companies and deserve what they get. Good luck to Anonymous.

Craigslist Hooker Serial Killer Strikes Again?; More Human Remains Found on Long Island



What is happening at Giglo Beach?

Investigators discovered the remains of four more bodies. That brings the total of eight bodies discovered since last December when four bodies belonging to known-prostitutes on craigslist were uncovered.

Suffolk County officials have yet to release any word if the newly discovered bodies are related to the four dead hookers.

Without a Serial Killer, Dead Prostitutes Just Don't Matter is a stellar read by Jaclyn Gallucci of the Long Island Press. She sheds some light into the difficulties about catching the criminals who dumped the bodies of dead hookers at various locations on Long Island.

Nanny State: Removal of Basketball Hoops

The last leg of the college basketball March Madness tournament begins today with the Final Four. However, it appears that the state of Delaware is not a fan of basketball according to this video involving the DOT and the McCafferty family. Apparently, someone in the neighborhood complained about basketball hoops in one neighborhood, so the DOT cited an obscure law and removed them all. The McCafferty family attempted to fight the removal of a hoop that has been in his driveway for over 60 years. He parked his van in front of the hoop and his wife even climbed on top of it. They videotaped their encounter with a law enforcement officer, which revealing about so many things that are wrong with the direction of America and this overbearing Nanny State.



Thanks to @NestaRastaPoker for the video.

The Fed: Printing Money for Foreign Banks



This Bloomberg article was highly disturbing: Foreign Banks Tapped Fed's Lifeline Most as Bernanke Kept Borrowers Secret. Here's the opening two paragraphs...
U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke's two-year fight to shield crisis-squeezed banks from the stigma of revealing their public loans protected a lender to local governments in Belgium, a Japanese fishing-cooperative financier and a company part-owned by the Central Bank of Libya.

Dexia SA (DEXB), based in Brussels and Paris, borrowed as much as $33.5 billion through its New York branch from the Fed's "discount window" lending program, according to Fed documents released yesterday in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. Dublin-based Depfa Bank Plc, taken over in 2007 by a German real-estate lender later seized by the German government, drew $24.5 billion.
The Central Bank of Libya is the most haunting. Even ZeroHedge had something to say about the Fed bailing out a Libya-owned bank.

For a couple of years, the rumor mill intensified that a few foreign entities received bail out money, but now those rumors are fact. It's beyond absurd that government-owned banks, such as the Bank of China and the Bank of Scotland, were able to get bumped to the front of the line of the Fed's "discount borrowing window."

It's still nauseating that American banks (the likes of Bank of America, J.P. Morgan, Citibank) were handed over piles of cash in order to keep the financial system from totally imploding, but I'm still fuzzy on the justification of handing over taxpayer money to foreign banks?

Oh, that's right... I forgot for a second that Bernanke doesn't give a rat's ass about America because he's just a soulless puppet with a wooden noggin' who is getting his strings pulled by the banking elite.

The Waffles Report: C.H.U.D.



I have been thinking. Yes, I know. Dangerous.

We will probably have an outbreak of some form of C.H.U.D in the near future. Think about it. The meat and vegetables of radiated Japan are just sitting there. Nobody is supposed to buy this shit because it is going to be glowing for like 1,000 years. However, we all know that greed trumps humanity, so it will be sold. Either an inspector will get a payout, some politician will get "caught" screwing some 16 year-old Japanese girl, or some third world country will funnel the poisoned products through their system. At best, it will end up in cat and dog food all over our country. Kibbles and Bits -- now with real irradiated meat chunks!

All of these cats and dogs will be pissing as usual. Down the drain. Streams of irradiated urine will be flooding into the sewers and meeting up with that number two favorite sewer prize: Discarded Lizards. Alligators. Komodo Dragons. Snakes.

Lizards are the most adaptable species outside of cockroaches in the world. Cut off an arm. It regrows. Cut off a nuclear poisoned arm... what the fuck could it grow into?

It will cause a rise in giant alligators in the sewers, odd deformed creatures, and yes, man eating C.H.U.D. It will not be safe to walk the streets after midnight. One minute your watching trannies offering tricks on the streets of NYC and the next minute some C.H.U.D. is eating your face underground.

Be careful out there and keep the dog food in a lead box. This has been a public service announcement from the TAO of Fear.
