“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” ~ Martin
Luther King, jr.

Can you hear it too? What is that sound? The sound that has the ability to drive a man
nuts. The sound of electricity buzzing in the lights. Yes, that is the sound of silence. A
sound that has spread across this nation like a disease. It’s like sitting in a church when
everyone takes a moment to pray and suddenly you hear a baby start to cry. That’s what
we hear, the sound of helpless tears from mothers who hoped that their children would
outlive them. Yet, nobody runs to comfort her. The sound of nothing and an absence of
action to go with it. Silence, a sound foreign to America. A sound that is pleasing to kings
and crippling to peasants. For the rest of the world, this is America’s real shock and awe,
its silence. The days are gone when all nations would look to see what American’s were
saying. No longer do they look to America, simply because there is nothing to hear or see
here. America sits silent while lady Justice is raped. Just when did America lose it’s voice?

Silence is the sound of surrender. The sound of fear. Creating fear is the quickest way to
achieve silence. Who benefits from the silence? Who would want to mute the mouths of
Americans? You ask yourself that question; don’t run around asking everyone else until
you can answer it. It is not a trick question. It is a very simple question and has been
answered by generations of the past. Rome, Germany, Russia, France, and China are
prime examples of a people that were silent. As the past will prove, it is not an imaginary
organization that benefits from a nations silence. Indeed, it is the leaders of that nation’s
government which benefits from the silence.

Silence is Un-american. A patriot does not remain silent. It is in the blood of every
American to stand and protest that which is wrong. America was founded by rebels. Those
same rebels populated America. Our ancestors were very rebellious against government. It
is that spirit of a rebel that defeated the armies of dictators. It is with that spirit that America
would win wars and defeat any enemy of freedom. War against government is no stranger
to the American people, in fact, it is a specialty. Americans specialize in defeating domestic
enemies of freedom. At least we once did. Now it seems as though Americans forgot how to
spot threats to freedom. We are definitely not the same as our forefathers. America was
founded on the belief that ones own government was the first enemy of freedom. It was
with that understanding that the Constitution was written. It was understood that a nations
own government posed a bigger threat than multiple nations combined in war. This was
understood because we came from a dictatorship.

Our ancestors understood that Government was the enemy. This is why they created a
government ran by the people. They gave power to the people of the nation. Not just some
people, but all people of this nation. They did this because they knew that Government is a
small group of people who want control. They knew that government over people lies and
deceives to keep power and wealth. Our forefathers understood the fact that the people
had to be in control of the government to prevent that government from conspiring against
the people. The people were given the power to prevent conspiracy.

Today, the people laugh at the word conspiracy. They make a big joke about it as if only a
lunatic would believe in conspiracies. Yet, it is the foundation of America to realize that
government does indeed conspire against its own people. In America, it is the job of every
citizen to prevent this from happenening. Who is doing their Job? If our government does
something against us, it is our responsibility to do something about it. Instead, the majority
says it can’t happen here. Even though it is and has been happening here. We as a whole
have not done our job! We can not possibly expect government to protect us from its own
self. We were given power by our founding fathers, and we do nothing with it. We gave
power back to government and expected that government to keep our personal interest in
mind. It’s like giving a beer to an alcoholic and expecting them not to drink it.

Our founding fathers did not create a perfect system. The system they created works with
two parts. Government and People. What they did not realize is that the people would stop
keeping government in order. They thought amendments would be used to better the
constitution, they didn’t realize amendments would be used to limit the constitution. They
did not plan for elected officials to lie to the people and those people allowing it. They did
not think we would stand back while our own poor starve so we can support another nation.
The founding fathers did not plan for the silence of the people.

If the current president would have been there in 1776 and tried to introduce a “patriot act”
he would have been hung in the streets, you can believe that! Our system becomes more
and more corrupt with each new president. The lies get bigger. None of the last three
presidents would have been worthy in the beginning days. They have done nothing but
help destroy America. They have lied to the people, they have sent our jobs away, they
have sent our children to die and they have created a system to make the poor more poor.
They have lied to your face and walked away smiling. We the people have become
seduced and allowed our political and corporate leaders to stay drunk on wealth and
power, taking us from the greatest nation to one of the worst nations.

America, so quick to war. The number of nations turning against us is growing. Meanwhile
Russia (once our greatest enemy), has eliminated most of its enemies by practicing what
America once stood for. Russia shows respect to other nations and is now prospering.
They have been lending a helping hand to nations like Iran. We on the other hand, bear
false witness against nations like Iraq and Iran, and we are failing. We supposedly elected
a “war President”. Most of his votes came from Christians. People who were warned by
their God to watch for wolves in sheep’s clothing. Is it a little strange that everything
America was taught to watch for has been allowed by those that have been warned? The
people of America are not innocent at all. We have the power to keep our government in
order. We have the power and the right to place and remove anyone in public office. We
have control of the game. Yet, we allow them to do as they will. The people who sit in
silence are as guilty as the people who do the deeds.

Americans are getting raped every which way they turn. This was once a nation that could
not keep silent. There was a time when we made sure the people were heard. Unions are
very American, in the past anyway. Even if you are not pro union, you have to admit, it is
American. I once was pro union, but I second guess that now. Unions at the upper levels
have become nothing more than a business for profit. They have been taking the money of
their members for years. At one time Unions were all about doing what it had to do to get
the point across. Now, it’s all about money. How is it that our unions sit back while people
are losing wages, benefits and even jobs? Since when did the working class become afraid
of standing up? The strange thing is, most union members claim to be democrat and vote
democrat. They praise Clinton for being such a great president. They refuse to look at the
fact that Clinton signed NAFTA into action. How is that for union? How is it that America
fails to see the power in their hands?

If all of the trucks shut down on the side of the road, and all of the factory workers didn’t
show up to work, it would only take one day for government to take notice. One day! That
is fact. What is your issue? High fuel prices? You will not get lower fuel prices by buying
fuel! You can’t just wait for an elected official to decide it is enough. That’s not going to
happen. Are we waiting for somebody honest to be elected president? Listen, it is not
going to happen!! We have to make them be honest. If we want results, it will take action
on our part. We have to take to the streets with our grievances. Petitions will not get us
anywhere. Apologies will not fix anything. We have to take action, the time is Now!
Government can not run without people. That is something our founding fathers knew. It is
something America has forgotten. We can not allow our troops to die for one mans lie.
While you sit their in silence and wait for somebody else to do something about it, you lose
more power. Stand up and be ready to fight! Are we Americans?

We waste our military power fighting for Israel’s interest, while an enemy strengthens. Iraq,
Iran and Syria are not threats to America. China is a threat to America. The nations we are
terrorizing are threats to Israeli interest, let Israel worry about their own problems. We have
been sending our jobs to China and don’t even realize what that is doing. This is putting
money into China’s economy. China is using that money to build up its military. If we go
messing with Iran, Russia will be sure to back them up. This will start a domino effect. All of
the other nations will chose sides. Britain will of course side with America and Israel.
France and Spain will likely side with America. China will certainly not back America. China
will side with Iran and Russia. If this does happen, America will see its defeat. We can not
allow this to happen! We have to stop fighting Israel’s wars, and we must stop financing
China’s military build up!

But the sound of silence is so loud.

We have no rights and no power. We have become weak. The rest of the world waits in
anticipation to see what America will do. Nothing?

Recently I was locked up, briefly for standing up for myself. I am no criminal, and I have no
record. The charge did not stick. But what happened? I had to go to court and when I got
there, I was told I couldn’t have time to find a lawyer. Even though the place taking me to
court had their lawyer, I was told the judgment was against me and I no longer had time to
get a lawyer. That was not about to stop me from defending myself. I used my right to
speech to defend myself and also used my right not to speak to defend myself. The judge
called the use of my rights “contempt of court”. It didn’t matter that this was a case that the
court was not to be involved in, and it didn’t matter that the judge was not supposed to be
involved. Because the other party’s lawyer did not want to accept my answer, he asked the
judge to put me under oath. Keep in mind that this lawyer and the judge were from the
same county, where I was from a different county. I guess that meant I did not have any
rights. Using my rights and quoting law, answering questions honestly, but because they
were not what they hoped to hear, it was called “contempt of court”. This of course was just
a scare tactic. They hoped by locking me in a cell that I would fear them and say what they
wanted to hear. The problem is, I don’t scare too easily. Fear is used to enslave people. I
will not be a slave to manipulated system. I am sure this has worked on many other people
in this particular court. I am also sure they think they can do this because you are too poor
to afford a lawyer. They did not count on the will of an American. People who know me told
me how it was nuts for me to do such a thing. I don’t think so, if exercising my rights is
crazy, I don’t want to be sane!

My case is irrelevant and really nobody’s business, so why would I bring it up? Because I
refuse to be silent. I refuse and if the rest of the nation would refuse to be silent, we would
get something done. There are hundreds of thousands who think like me and act like me,
but only hundreds who speak like me. The silence is much too loud. America needs to
realize what made us a great nation. It’s not the education that we force in order to
compete with other nations. It is not the Olympics. It is not the skyscrapers. It is the will. It is
the imagination. It is the belief that if you can dream it you can achieve it. It is the ability to
think for yourself. It is the guts to speak up. The world once respected America for what it
was. A nation who would jump to help others, and a nation of people who would not allow
anyone to tread on their freedom, foreign or domestic. We were known as the greatest
nation because of our freedom. When we become a nation of slaves to fear, there is
nothing to admire!

If we remain silent, nobody will know anything is wrong.

“In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I
wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I
wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I
wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up
because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left
to speak up.” ~ Martin Niemoller

 A former Canadian military officer finally goes public with shocking information he learned
while working at an underground base at Cold Lake in Canada. Although some may say
his story is pure fiction, others claim the secrets to the New World Order’s depopulation
plan lies underground.

      By Greg Szymanski / October 20, 2005

Everyone is talking about the New World Order and a one world government, but
according to a former Canadian military officer, nobody wants to believe its true sinister
nature lies in the mysteries surrounding thousands of deep underground military bases
scattered throughout the world. Here is his story:

Timothy of Canada tells a wild story, a story of underground military bases where animal
and human sacrifices nourish the bowels of creatures that have inhabited the earth long
before man arrived.

He doesn’t expect anybody to believe him, saying most people will think he’s talking
science fiction anyway. But nevertheless he feels compelled to speak, feeling compelled to
risk life and limb as the New World Order zeroes in on the last stages of its incredible
worldwide population reduction plan.

“They have been delayed with their plan to reduce the world’s population by 80 percent
but the globalists are now stepping up their activities,” said Timothy, who refuses to use his
real name, in an extended conversation this week from Germany, where he’s employed in
the aerospace industry.

“I am not about to use my name, risking incarceration as I would be in violation of our
country’s State Secrets Act. Also, do you know that more than 3,000 people have been
killed for trying to talk about what goes on in these underground bases. It’s basically a
death sentence when you start getting too close to the nerve center of the real New World
Order’s plans.”

And Timothy says the real heart and soul of the New World Order plan lies in the
mysterious underground military bases scattered all over the world, including roughly 30 in
Canada, 140 in the United States and more than 1,500 worldwide.

He became privy to this top secret information when he served as a junior officer in the
Canadian Armed Forces in the aerospace engineering branch, while working at one of the
top secret deep underground military bases at Cold Lake in Canada.

And what he learned and what he has been researching ever since leaving the military is
how this network of underground bases not only houses and conceals non-human life
forms with incredible powers, but conceals an underground warehouse of sophisticated
super-human technology used for mind control, advanced military weaponry and weather
manipulation with the eventual goal of depopulating the world.

“Most people, including most of the so-called patriots, are sincere about defeating the New
World Order, but they are really looking in the wrong direction. They need to uncover,
expose and alert the people of the world what’s going on below the earth’s surface,” said
Timothy who likes to talk in a machine gun, rapid fire fashion, as he recalled first being
alerted to the underground military base phenomenon when he researched the mysterious
events surrounding cattle manipulation in Alberta, Canada, in the 1970’s.

“It is very dangerous and you could be killed if you try to expose what the globalists are
doing with this network of tunnels and underground facilities, but I have ended my silence
since they are now in the final stages of there plan. Remember, AIDS being manufactured?
Well, what’s in store for mankind is now much worse and we need to do everything we can
to try and stop the destruction of the world as we know it.”

Although Timothy’s story can easily be dismissed as pure fantasy, stories like his have a
funny way of getting under your skin, a funny way of creeping up on you right before you
fall asleep at night. They have a strange way, no matter how outlandish and unbelievable
they are, to solicit questions in your mind like “What if he is telling the truth and what if
these sinister plans and military bases really do exist?”

Even though Timothy has promised from his undisclosed location in Germany to provide
names of at least three other people, making this initial story an ongoing saga, he provided
a battery of questions and perhaps a scientific Shakespearean soliloquy of sorts in the
interim, explaining why he decided to go public and why it is imperative to uncover the
secrets of the underground military bases.

“With the outbreak of the flu virus I feel compelled to break my silence. Maybe some of you
have heard the term New World Order and feel confused about its significance.

“From this point let’s put everything into a series of hypotheticals. Maybe I do not wish to
break the Official Secrets Act and wind up incarcerated. Let us pretend I am about to
reveal ultra-sensitive information to you. Please approach this with an open mind.

“In the late 1970s I first became aware of the cattle mutilation phenomenon living in
Alberta, Canada. The reasons given were unusual for this and it was the suppression of
the outcry and true angst I sensed from the cattle farmers protesting outside of Calgary
that first got to me.

“This was the first time I realized there was something seriously wrong. The hush-hush of
this left a lasting impression.

“Let us assume I served as a junior officer in the Canadian Armed Forces in the Aerospace
Engineering Branch. One base was Cold Lake.The members of this base wondered
innocently why this was the only base where it was required to always wear a black
radiation exposure detector.

“Maybe this is due to a Deep Underground Military Base with unusual aerial phenomena a
few hundred statute miles north almost straight in line with Cold Lake bordering with
Saskatchewan.

“What if you were to realize that Canada has over 30 DUMBs,and its neighbor to the south
has over 140 active DUMBs. Worldwide there are now over 1500 DUMBs.

“Let us assume all North American DUMBs are connected below by oxygenated
magnetoleviton trains from Krupp, Germany, and are able to reach MACH2+, having the
tunnels vacuumed of air to eliminate air resistance. Adjacent to this is a subterranean
tunnel highway.

“Let us assume that many of these bases are actually underground cities for beings that in
actuality have resided here for millennia. Do you have the courage to believe this?

“All patriots who are willing to resist this New World Order should realize that globalists who
have submitted are not the only problem. Maybe they have sold the rest of us out-thinking
they will survive and not be enslaved as the remaining.

“What if by 2029 the global population is to be massively reduced, the remaining subjects
enslaved and hauled off to underground slave labor factories to serve the global elite?

“What if the SDI project is in reality a weapon system to ward off unwanted “guests”. Maybe
all countries were fighting secretly a global war against strangers once they realized in the
late 1970s that true intentions of inhabitants of these DUMBs were evil beyond belief.

“What if society cannot handle the truth?

“What if Eisenhower decided at Holloman AFB keeping things secret would prevent mass
panic and decay into total anarchy? Examining the panic Y2K generated, has society
become more courageous with time? I, for one forgive Eisenhower.

“What if over 8 million humans have literally been devoured by residents of these bases,
the majority nourishing themselves with human glandular secretions?

“I do not expect anyone to believe this. But let us assume I have been privy to a lot of
horrific information. Let us assume that in reality there are 143 elements in the periodic
table. Maybe the only way the SR75 can reach MACH9+ is by using metal technology not
of this world? Maybe the stealth aircraft use special coatings combined with
electrochemical electronic countermeasures. Maybe this is why the stealth never were  
used when it rained in former Yugoslavia?

“Maybe the cloaking technology successfully tested at Tonapaz Range and S2 employs
high frequency helix devices in the leading edges of the newest generation vehicles,
refracting light making the aircraft invisible.

“Maybe I have dealt with metallurgic technology with crystalline structures not of this earth?
Maybe the general public has been kept in the dark for many decades.

“I wish things were not the way they are. Nobody has the right to sell anyone out. Maybe I
would not be revealing anything if I was not certain that all the secrecy and timeline is
reaching a climax. We are all going to have to assert ourselves beyond belief. We have
been lied to and we thought we were doing our best for betterment.

“I know mankind is destroying this planet, but I refuse to be enslaved. I am sick of the lies
and the New World Order agenda. Maybe the force driving it resides in these bases. If you
sense your freedoms are being revoked, you are not mistaken.

“After the last element of gun control is implemented, all freedoms will be removed within a
ten year period. Never surrender your weapons. I wish this was not happening and I  have
had many sleepless nights, but for me I cannot stand it anymore. Never believe that the
One World government is good for us. Observe the dismantling of nations now and how
the United Nations is taking over.

“I wondered back then why is the Canadian military shrinking. This is no accident. The
American military is becoming more and more the global force combined with NATO. What
can we do? Well, I know this. I will not cooperate with anyone who has sold me out. I will
fight for every right I have, simultaneously enjoying the freedom of travel which still exists.
Not for long though.

“I will not believe whatever the World Health Organization dictates. Do not believe anything?

“Examine the new Denver International Airport. Maybe in reality below it is a massive DUMB
with 8 levels. Why does the fence point inward? Why the unusual security? Maybe the tent
spires are in actuality large ventilation shafts to the subterranean levels. Start with this
airport please. If you cannot find anything bizarre there then I feel sorry for you.

“I do believe in God.He gives us faith.The New Testament in the Book of Genesis refers to
the son of God. The Old Testament refers to the sons of Gods. Both refer to the serpent
or demons.Maybe the residents of the DUMBs are what were meant – a serpent race.

“God bless you. Remember, this information and revealing it is not without peril. Be wise!”

As Jesus entered Jerusalem in what many Bible teachers refer to as The Triumphal Entry,
his disciples rejoiced “with a loud voice.” Hearing this, the Pharisees demanded that Christ
rebuke and quiet His followers. Instead, the Lord responded saying, “I tell you that, if these
should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.” (Luke 19:40 KJV)

I was reminded of that episode in our Lord’s earthly life as I read a recent news item on the
Drudge Report. According to Drudge, the entertainer known globally as “Material Girl” now
believes “the beast is the modern world that we live in.”

Drudge quotes Madonna as saying, “The material world. The physical world. The world of
illusion that we think is real. We live for it, we’re enslaved by it. And it will ultimately be our
undoing.”

Madonna was explaining her new documentary film, “I’m Going To Tell You A Secret,”
which premiered at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City this week. In the movie, Madonna
warns that people “are going to go to hell, if they don’t turn from their wicked behavior.”

Imagine that. While Material Girl Madonna publicly and boldly sounds the clarion call for
repentance, many, if not most, Christian ministers preach a gospel of materialism. What in
the world is going on?

I believe what is going on is, the stones are crying out! Because ministers, pastors, and
televangelists refuse to address the fundamental ills of society, because they seem caught
up with prosperity theology, entertainment evangelism, pandering to politicians, and
delivering ear-tickling sermonettes, God is using “stones” to cry out truth!

I believe the stones were crying out when Mel Gibson produced “The Passion.” I believe
the stones are crying out again with Madonna’s warning.

Whether Madonna has had a religious experience, or whether she feels personal guilt for
the part she once played in helping to push the nation’s culture further down the slippery
slope, or something else altogether, it seems apparent that she is now proclaiming truth (at
least as quoted above) in a way many preachers seem too timid to do.

For those of us who are students of Scripture, this should come as no surprise. After all, if
God could use Balaam’s ass to do what the old prophet was unwilling to do, God could use
whatever instrument He chooses to proclaim His truth today.

However, the overall message of this story is that prophets and preachers should be the
ones who faithfully and loquaciously preach God’s truth to the nation. Because they are
not doing their jobs, the stones are crying out!

I read an article talking about Jefferson’s spirit of resistance. Where is it at? I agree with the
article, it asks a very good question. Resistance, it is in the blood of us all, right? The spirit of
government resistance is what lead to the foundation of America. The article got me thinking,
it is not only America’s Christian leaders that have backed down. There is another group that
has backed down.

Has Rock ‘N Roll Died?

Now I realize that is a silly question. As the song says, rock n roll will never die. Truth is, rock
n roll as music will not die. But the spirit of rock roll is almost dead. Where are your
rebellious rockers today? Musicians have a great deal of influence, and they once used it to
be a voice of the people. Today, they use their influence to become rich and corrupt the
minds of America’s youth. Not all do, but the majority. The very few that hit home on issues,
are chasing issues separately and they are scattered issues. The one issue right now, that
has a large following is the war based on lies. Where is rock n roll on this? There is a very
small percent of musicians hitting this today. So small, those who are hitting it are not heard.

Of course, you have your scattered radio stations playing “Born In The USA” but they think it
is an “America is great” song. A lot of them don’t realize that it is a protest song. I am
reminded of lyrics from Kurt Cobain. “He’s the one Who likes all the pretty songs And he likes
to sing along And he likes to shoot his gun But he knows not what it means” ~ Nirvana “In
Bloom”
How true those words are! This from a band when rockers still had it in them to speak
up. Of course around this time, we didn’t have the major issue we have right now, the “war on
terror”. Think about the influence that Cobain had on America’s youth. What do you think
would have happened if his prime was now, instead of then. What if he cam out against a war
because we were lied to? Do you think our government would have been able to censor him
enough? I don’t think so. Nirvana had such a large fan base, musicians dream about. Cobain
had the type of fans that are against establishment. Not to mention the rest of the bands at
about the same time, while a bit different, still held a lot of the same fan base. I.E.
Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Rage Against the Machine, etc. I guarantee, if this war was
then, we would have had another woodstock on our hands. A real one, not the false remakes.

So, where are they today? Today’s voices of Rock n Roll, where are they? Music is nothing
but big business these days. Metallica is proof of that. Rebel voices standing against rebel
actions. Where is the Metallica I knew? The Metallica that I helped make rich, that band that
dedicated a whole album to war songs. Where are they? We hear these musicians and like
what they have to say, so we run out and make them rich. Now when we need them to amplify
our voice, they are in hiding. Where are these brave and fearless rockers? What are they
afraid of?

Growing up, my dream was to be a great musician. (still is really). But if I would have had half
the fame, I would be damned if I would sit back and let the people down. How many Rockers
showed up in support of Cindy? When I say rockers, I don’t mean just the heavy metal
people. I mean any type of music that has any kind of rock n roll influence. Which is about all
music. Rappers are included too.
Where are your tough guy rappers at? Sure, they’ll tell you how big and bad they are, they
aint about to put up with no police harassing them over drugs. But they are not about to tell
you how they feel about the war started on a lie. They so tough, they aint gonna back down
from authority trying to break up their gang. But they aint so tough that their gonna talk about
the president. They aint afraid to bust a cap in your ass for spankin their bitches for free, but
they have no feelings on being lied into a deadly war.

Would protesting viet nam had been so big without the musicians? I really don’t think so.
Music is a part of everything. Follow the music, and you’ll find the people. When you find the
people, you find the advertisers. Then finally, you’ll end up finding the media. I am not at all
suggesting another woodstock. Corporations will certainly try to profit off that, and ruin the
whole thing. All I am suggesting is that some of these bands stick together to electrify the
voice of the people. We are their fans, without the fans they would have nothing. Return the
damned favor! Get out of hiding.

Somebody needs to revitalize the spirit of Rock n Roll! All you rockers need to get rid of your
damned business degrees and get back to your roots. Start making music, not money. If you
make good music, the money will come. There are some damned important issues right now, I
don’t need to see your commercialized live 8. I don’t need to support RAG Rock Against
Gingivitis. I need to hear you getting in the face of a liar who has put our nation in harms way.
But you are too commercial for that, so you keep on rock’n in the free world.

I don’t like to brag, but I have an enormous estate. Most of it has been passed down
through the generations, so I sorta got used to letting things run themselves. Years
ago, my ancestors started building what would become one of the greatest, wealthiest
and most powerful in it’s class. The cup runs over with power and wealth. To meet me
you would never guess I had so much. I am not a rock star, or an actor. I am just a
man with a lot of assets. I am thinking about applying for a loan so that I will not have
to file bankruptcy on my debts. As you will see, all that I have is putting me in debt. So
I would like to list some of my assets.

I have a Mansion
My mansion is beautiful. It is one of the most desirable homes in my country. It is large
and furnished with some of the finest furnishings around. It has a large yard, and
even has a place for the landing of my helicopter. My mansion is staffed with
personnel to cook, clean, and do everything else. My mansion has a security fence all
the way around. I keep armed security on guard 24/7 365, they are among the best
security personnel anywhere. It really is awesome. You may wonder why I would pay
so much money for so much security? The mansion was built a long time ago, and the
neighborhood has become one of the most corrupt. I let people on my payroll stay
there, just an added benefit for working for me, they love it. I have never been there,
but they tell me it’s nice. I really should throw a party there some day. You should
come, it’ll be fun.

I have a Limo
My limo is great. It is one tricked out ride. You really should see the inside. There is a
man on my payroll whose only job is to drive the car, he loves it. My limo has the best
of the best in auto security. It has reinforced metal and glass. I also pay security to
ride in a separate vehicle to guard the car and people inside. I never use it myself, I
let the employee of the year use it. He tells me the car is a gas hog, but why does he
care, I’m the one paying for it. He says it’s fun to piss people off because they can’t
harm him when he’s inside. We’ll have to take it for a spin sometime.

I have a Jet
My jet is so cool. You would love it. It’s like a flying house. My jet has everything you
could imagine. It does a whole lot more than getting from point a to point b. I don’t like
to fly, so I never use it. The folks on my payroll sure love it though. Just one of the
small perks. I have noticed recently though, the fuel cost is really tugging my wallet.

I like taking care of my employees. Sure, it cost a lot to take care of these people, but
I expect a great job performance. I pay them at the top of the pay scale, and give
them an excellent benefits package. They even get raises when they think they need
them.I also provide them with all of these extras that I don’t really use anyway. I don’t
mind, as long as they do me a good job. Of course, lately the cost is catching up to
me. I have to admit, I have taken my fortune for granted. Now, I think everyone on my
payroll is taking their job for granted. They are starting to get greedy and take too
much control of my
own property.

Some people would say I have it all. I guess I never realized how much I really did
have. It has all been passed down through the generations. I don’t really have the
time to worry about the day to day operations. Everything was already staffed by the
time I inherited it. It has always ran itself so far, so I just let it. I just figure I’ll pay the
professionals to run things. They can decide what is important. Why should I have to
worry about it. I mean I am the one paying them, it’s not like they can just take over, is
it?

Now, I am starting to see things through a different light. I’m thinking I should have
paid more attention. I started noticing that I was paying people to protect me and my
lifestyle, but the only thing they were doing is increasing their own. They have taken
me to the cleaners while I provide their wealth. I am thinking it may be time for me to
look into downsizing. I need to step in and protect my inheritance before it is all gone.
I think it may be time for me to fire some people.

Yes, I have a mansion. I never even seen it. I pay people to run things, and let them
live in my mansion. I also provide all of the basics for these people. Lately I have been
very displeased with these people whom I pay well. They have been lying and stealing
from me, so I am looking into replacing them.

Are you looking for work? Are you honest and trustworthy? Are you able to take
orders and do what you are paid to do? The pay is great, the benefits are great, and
the perks are awesome. If you are interested, you will need to know who I am!You can
find me anywhere. I am the average tax paying American citizen. ……  Now Hiring!
