Feedback comes first, so...

[whitling wind] None...

My mother is out of the hospital. I sent her a bouquet of flowers as a "Happy Birthday" and "Stay Well" present.

I am at 29,000 downloads. Woo...hooo.

Feed Forward comes next, so...

This is "your" segment.

Say "your" piece on this segment.

Share with other MSers whatever "you" want to share.

Drop me an email: charles at

And I would apreciate if someone could write a review of this podcast on iTunes [ ] You can just select the link and, eventually, scroll down the iTunes page to "Customer Reviews"

Feed Me comes third, so...

Do you have a therapy, product, good or service that is of interest to MSers?

Consider advertising on this podcast.

Reminders on this segment only cost $0.03 per reminder per download of an episode. (A $30CPM targeted at MSers.)

It can/should lead to a full ad, in text, audio or video, which costs $3.00 per download.

That sounds expensive until you do the math and realize that if nobody downloads it it costs you nothing, unlike print, where you often can't even get an ad in to the specialized journals, or radio or TV where you'd just be wasting your money with the 0.0833% MSers rate of return. (That's about six times "below" the level of "statistical noise".)

But MSBPodcast is 100% in your market, and you only pay per download of your material.

No play, no pay.

Reach the MSers who would buy your therapy, product, good or service, with-out having to waste your advertising money on anyone who is "not" interested...

"Zeitgeist" is a German expression meaning "Spirit of the Times". [ ].

"Gestalt" is a German expression meaning "Shape" or "Form"

I think you should pause this podcast, click the link, let the movie come up in your browser and watch it.

I'll wait...

Part I.

Thank [insert deity name here] that I'm a product of "La Révolution Tranquile".

All religiosity was driven from me by the excesses of hypocrisy inherent in the system.

Part II.

The WTC towers came down because the supporting members along the outer wall bowed and "snapped" caused by the stresses of supporting the floors. Don't look for conspiracy where there isn't any.

But that doesn't mean that the government wasn't sleeping at the switch. (Very profitably for some people.)

Terrorism requires that people "not" be resigned to their ultimate fate, but instead be deluded into thinking that they have a chance. (The best enemy to have to be paid to "defend against," is one that you cant kill. The "War on Terror" is eternal because "anyone" can be the enemy at any time.)

Part III.

Bankers don't care about what you own, but they do care about what you owe, everything.

The economy of the United States has done wonderfully since it got off the gold standard. Apart from the Crashes of 1909, 1929 and the subsequent Great Depression, a couple of world wars, Vietnam and a few clashes, adventurism, the occasional recessions and bombings.

The United States became the richest country in the history of the world. (Okay, Nixon was an utter prick when it came to setting up a heath care system with any kind of future, instead setting up HMO's, but what of that? He did end the war in Vietnam and started a "raprochement" with China [who are now the major suppliers of everything left that our lower and middle classes can afford to buy and hold a major portion of our foreign debt.])

But these days, with a declared war against an undeclared enemy, tax cuts for the rich, "meh! Not so good..."

(Not just your piddling few thousand a year tax cuts either; these people, [who make up a vanishingly small portion of the population,] earn more "per second" that we are likely to see in our "entire lifetimes" [specially we MSers.])

(The power of compound interest is that, after a few centuries, a small investment becomes staggeringly huge. These people don't work for their living, "you" work for their living.)

And there's all those weapons to buy and to pay for...

I wouldn't mind for paying for something I could use, but what am I going to do with a cruise missile? You can't fire one of those indoors.

This film should really have pissed off some people, on both sides of the ideological "line in the sand."


And for those who wonder about the Carlyle Group, here's some information from a Dutch source.


---- "Think for Yourself" by: "George Hrab"


If the allegations are true, it doesn't matter, because everybody dies, even the richest die, even the bankers.

But I don't really want anybody to feel he can make my life miserable, just because he can.

Recording all of your transactions in an implantable chip is a fool's errand. Only a complete idiot would trust something that can be hacked, unless its backed up by layers of external systems.

But they could make life hell (and believe me, we MSers know what that hell can be just trying to get up out of a chair,) for anybody if there is "any" possibililty of wiping you off the face of the grid.
