The Serious Tracking of Americans Begins

They have passed the health bill, they have passed the financial regulations bill and they have snuck stuff into the stimulus package bills. They are going to track your money and your body. Here’s the first few things they are doing. This is step one. It will only get worse from here.

According numismaster.com:

…the Health Care Bill mandates, according to Numismaster.com, Starting on January 1st in 2012, S federal law will require coin and bullion dealers to report to the Internal Revenue Service all gold and silver coin purchases and sales greater than $600.
No that is not an error, they tacked the gold coin tracking regulations into the health bill. They are just tacking stuff on wherever they can.

As for your body, you will be required to have an “electronic health record”, by 2014. They snuck this into one of the “stimulus” bills. The electronic record will include an obesity rating. The information will be required to be on a “national exchange” with only secure access (Hah!). Why the F does your obesity rating have to be on a national exchange? This is a tip off to how micro-managed they are going to attempt to run your life.

Keep in mind that the health bill and financial “reform” bill are thousands of pages, with much of the details left up to the new agencies to fill in. Obama is appointing major league interventionists to head these agencies. They are completely clueless as to how an economy works. Their regs will be over the top. It will stifle America in so many ways, it is difficult to imagine. I was in East Berlin the year before the Wall came down. I saw what constant monitoring and micro-management did to people. It is not pretty. The gray, the drab, the despair was everywhere. When you can only take orders and wait for approvals and are constantly watched, it saps the life out of you. America is going to be changing and the government is going to try and watch you and monitor your vitals, as if you were a lab rat, as it does the changing.

It is not going to be pretty.

I wear many hats but history, economics and political observance have always been a passion. I am a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College of Business with a degree in Information Systems and Digital Business with a minor in European History. I work for a small mom-and-pop IT consulting and software design company. We deal in servicing mostly government funded non-profit mental and behavioral health care agencies in the state of Ohio. In this I deal with Medicaid and Medicare funds and have a little insight on the boondoggles of government there. Thankfully the undemanding nature of my daily profession gives me ample time to read and stay aware of our current state of affairs which I find stranger than fiction in many instances. In addition to being in the IT field, I have also been self employed with a small contracting company so I might know a thing or two about the plight of small business that employs 71% of the American workforce. I however don't draw my knowledge from my day jobs, which I have had a few; I draw it from an intense obsession with facts and observation about the world in which I live. I do have formal education in things such as history, economics and finance particularly as it pertains to global issues, but I have come to find much of what I thought I knew from the formalities of a state university I had to unlearn through much time and independent research. I hope you enjoy what I bring you which is not often heard in the mainstream news outlets. I would like to think my own personal editorializing is not only edifying but thought provoking while not at all obnoxious. That last one may be a hard to achieve.

    America is not the America of the founders any more.
    It is becoming a fascist police state.
    We are pathetic hollow ghosts of our forefathers. Shopping, watching/playing the idiot box, medicated, and stupid. We are very deserving of our fate.
    And we are also wimps and cowards compared to our forefathers.
    They drew blood after the satanic currency act doled out by King George. When that fat Brit dropped that hammer, our forefathers hammered him.
    Our forefathers would have revolted both physically and mentally way way before the Obama-droid was placed into office.
    We’re weak fools, and we’ll be shopping while America crumbles.
    Since we now choose the path of control, every American that has fought and died to support our ability to be free, which means not controlled, has died in vain. And that is a sad sobering fact now isn’t it? Why did we bother to fight Hitler, he did the same things the government is doing now. Why fight the Cold War, when we are now something Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev could be so proud of?
    Look in the mirror and realize how pathetic you and your fellow Americans have become. Now get off your ass and do something to prove you want to be sovereign, and free.

    Gee, since I have never been to a doctor or a hospital, I don’t have a health record or more accurately a sickness or injury or disease record. My health record is nonexistent therefore perfect. So this means I will have to get sick or injured or diseased by 2014 in order to comply with the new laws. Therefore it will be illegal to be in perfect health after 2014. Could I be put in jail or fined for being in good health?

    ‘When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.’ Thomas Jefferson

    REVOLUTION is the Solution!!!

    ‘God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion…. And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms…. The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.’ – Thomas Jefferson, in letter to William S. Smith, 1787

    One tiny, but very significant, component of the great 1099 storm that is headed straight for small businesses everywhere. There will be no meaningful investments which are not visible and seizeable by the Great Hall Monitors. Sold as anti-crime measures; these are, of course,enslavement schemes. Independent capitalists will be bogged down in paperwork ( filling out 1099′s)and made to be cops just as the average bank teller is now. What to do about it?
    Dont know since I always adhere to the law but here’s a hint: one ounce coins of gold or platinum are now useless. Gotta be one- quarter ounce coins or numismatics. Cant use a “private” box in a bank either now , can we? Next, the Great Hall Monitors will go after the use of nominee shell corporations out of Nevada and Wyoming; claiming that the bad people use them to shield assets from our heroic overlords.
