    Default If someone really want's to know...

    A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.

    - James Madison in a letter to William T. Barry, 1822

    If someone really want's to know, he/she has to read a lot, "Youtube" and such likes will not cater to the one who want's to know what's going on around him and what is changing legally and technologically...

    Here is a link that has the latest releases of important facts that happen every day, happy reading...

    Only one article under the Philippines tab. Guess not much knowledge is needed here.

    From that one article:

    " Of the seven major TV networks, three are government-owned, but only one — NBN — is under the government’s operational control. NBN promotes official views but has lost audience share to private TV stations ABS-CBN and GMA, which sensationalize news and entertainment programs. "

    Sensationalized news....great for keeping people ignorant of the real problems. I think the worst kind of moron is one who THINKS he is "informed".

    I did not even bother to look at the one about the Philippines. But there are many interesting ones, like this one:Sworn Declaration of Whistleblower William Binney on NSA Domestic Surveillance Capabilities | Public Intelligence or this one:U.S. Treasury Office of Intelligence and Analysis (OIA) Strategic Direction 2012-2015 | Public Intelligence

    I am not concerned much what goes on locally but rather what the US and it's Allies are up to...

    Here something more interesting than not existing UFO's.

    STATEMENT OF SENATOR CARL LEVIN (D-MICH)
    BEFORE
    U.S. SENATE PERMANENT SUBCOMMITTEE ON INVESTIATIONS
    ON
    OFFSHORE PROFIT SHIFTING AND THE U.S. TAX CODE
    September 20, 2012
    America stands on the edge of a fiscal cliff. This challenge lends new urgency to a topic this
    subcommittee has long investigated: how U.S. citizens and corporations have used loopholes and
    gimmicks to avoid paying taxes. This subcommittee has demonstrated in hearings and
    comprehensive reports how various schemes have helped shift income to offshore tax havens and
    avoid U.S. taxes. The resulting loss of revenue is one significant cause of the budget deficit, and
    adds to the tax burden that ordinary Americans bear.
    U.S. multinational corporations benefit from the security and stability of the U.S. economy, the
    productivity and expertise of U.S. workers and the strength of U.S. infrastructure to develop
    enormously profitable products here in the United States. But, too often, too many of these
    corporations use complex structures, dubious transactions and legal fictions to shift the profits
    from those products overseas, avoiding the taxes that help support our security, stability and
    productivity.
