The Husband Store

A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City where a woman
may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a
description of how the store operates:

You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value
of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may
choose any item from a particular
floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back
down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.
On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs

She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign
Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.
'That's nice,' she thinks, 'but I want more.' So she continues upward. The
third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.
'Wow,' she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.She goes to the
fourth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and
Help With Housework. 'Oh, mercy me!' she exclaims, 'I can hardly stand it!'
Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help
with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak. She is so tempted to stay,
but she goes to the sixth floor,
where the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on
this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to
please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opened a
New Wives store just across the street for the men.

The first floor has wives that love sex.

The second floor has wives that love sex and have money and
like beer

The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been

Mother, Daughter Charged With Abusing Male Minor

[From article]
"Rachel Brock is accused of committing numerous sex acts with the teenage boy between February 2007 and August 2008, and sending him nude photos and a video of herself masturbating; none of the acts involved intercourse.
[. . .]
"You have a situation where you have a mother who's abusing a juvenile victim, seemingly unknowingly to the daughter, or vice versa, and the daughter is also abusing the same victim," Favazzo said. "I just can't imagine a mother and daughter having this conversation, and the investigators say they don't have anything indicating the two of them knew about it."

Police Take Gun From Civilian. Was it legal?

Here's one more distorted report which makes a citizen look evil or perhaps deranged. The most important fact was omitted, i.e., "Did he have a license to carry the weapon? Did he have the gun legally?" Journalists have been conditioned (and condition citizens) to oppose guns, even legal ones. Why don't they object to police carrying loaded guns? Others report drunk drivers who sometimes kill civilians. Sometimes the drunk drivers turn out to be police officers. How many of them carry loaded weapons while intoxicated? This report does not explain why psychiatrists were concerned about the weapon. The actions of the psychiatrists make them appear to be acting weird without the omitted facts. Under the US Constitution civilians have a right to carry weapons. Calling the police who arrested the man might be intimidation. It is a felony under MA state law to intimidate a person from the free exercise of a right guaranteed under the Constitution. There is no consistency regarding guns. There was no outrage when a private citizen carried a loaded weapon into a Boston psychiatric clinic and shot dead one patient in the name of protecting a psychiatrist. The prevailing misguided belief is that psychiatrists have had their genes cleansed of mendacity, greed and sadism. Their drug company funded PR flacks created a massive taxpayer funded boondoggle which denies freedom to civilians in the name of health. How charming!

Major Abuses of Police Power, Priorities

This man was convicted of murdering 8 women from 1995 to 1998 in and around Springfield, MA. Clearly no police official was watching him. Yet for 42 years police, FBI informants and their Communist associates kept me under 24/7 surveillance, and still do. In addition they harass me, disturb my sleep, and broadcast character assassination stirring up racial, police and ethnic animosity from ignorant professors, students and racist bullies who abuse their police power even at Harvard University which promotes the idea of tolerance and diversity. When I travel to other states police follow me and harass me there also. Is it any wonder why there is no respect for the US Congress now at 9 percent of public support? Harvard runs leadership training courses for new Congressmen every two years. Many public officials have Harvard degrees, e.g., past two US Presidents, past three elected MA Governors. Can there be any more depraved abuse of police power than this?

FBI Dept. of Justice Abuses

This site describes many years of serious abuses by the FBI in New York and Boston, and also Department of Justice abuses. Not as if these abuses were not documented in books, but many young people have not and do not read books. They get their information online. Here are some facts that all Americans need to know for their own protections.

3 journalists show how they report FBI abuses

Massachusetts Vote Counters Reveal Their Priorities

People who count the votes in Massachusetts revealed their priorities on Novemeber 2, 2010. They chose a comatose Attorney General, who says, "In Massachusetts, technically, it is not illegal to be illegal.", and who writes letters to the US Congress promoting more privileges for homosexuals. Vote counters chose a Governor with relaxed rectitude who says he is not a politician. The voter counters reaffirmed that they like having a court system that competes with the legislature for patronage jobs.
The Boston FBI office arranged a frameup of four white men for murder. Two died in prison. Two were released after 30 years. The Department of Justice under the allegedly racist US Attorney General refuses to pay court ordered $101 million in damages using taxpayer money for the abuse of power. No FBI agent suffered any penalty for destroying the lives of four families.
One Boston FBI informant was indicted for 19 homicides. His handler alerted him to an arrest warrant. The informant remains a fugitive after 15 years. While running free before he left he compromised local police departments, state police and the FBI in Boston. Civilians are supposed to believe that since he left there is no organized crime in the state.
To prevent one unpopular person from enjoying The Right to Pursue Happiness local police conduct a relentless program of harassment, and character assassination. One element of this abuse is broadcasting the false profile that he is a retired drug dealer. This encourages local drug dealers in Massachusetts to associate with the alleged retired drug dealer. Then police arrest the misguided dealers, who are then told that the retired dealer was really a police informant. Two charming FBI informants did this to the same man for 35 years in three states. They are both delightful homosexuals protected by Harvard University. This is what passes for education using taxpayer grants in the great state of Massachusetts.
When the man complains about these abuses police use psychiatry to discredit him. What a wonderful one-party-Democratic-state.

Cambridge Police Tamper With Computers, US Mail

Cambridge Police and their gambling ring bookies tamper with my sleep, and my computers. They harass me for 40 years, after they recruited me to work for them and I declined their invitation. Massachusetts politicians use Boston police and Boston FBI to frame their opponents for crime. Harvard professors use Harvard Campus cops to harass critics. The Boston FBI framed four white men for murder. Two died in prison. Two were released after 30 years. Eric Holder's Corrupt Racist Injustice Department refuses to pay a court ordered $101 million damage award. In 1971 out of law school the Cambridge police protected gambling ring tried to frame me for theft. In 1990 Cambridge police framed me for assault after I made a formal complaint about police harassment. When I seek assistance from the Apple Store "geniuses" the police (on one occasion it was the FBI) make certain that they have their own people in place to compromise me further. On Tuesday November 23, 2010 one of their "Geniuses" asked me to give him my computer password. I suspect that was one of the several black racist cops who harass me each day at my Harvard residence. On my way home two black males possibly police followed me and glared at me as I waited for the MBTA bus. One of the black racist Harvard campus cops stalked me for about 7 years. My complaints to Harvard administrators were ignored. Harvard administrators are as spineless as the politicians. There is no end to the corruption of the Cambridge police, the Harvard University campus cops and the Massachusetts state government. There was even an unannounced visit from Harvard celebrity poet Lloyd Schwartz on November 23rd at the Apple Store. Was he in on this criminal abuse also? When an FBI informant (one of about 10 who harassed me over 40 years) was pretending to be a "genius" at the Apple Store he told me that my hard drive was no good. I knew he was wrong and wrote to the Vice president of Apple. Never got any reply. Likely the letter never got to them. Police tamper with US Mail also. Once I sent a letter via Fedex from Cambridge to Cambridge. It never arrived. The President of Fedex sent me a check for $25. What good is money if I can't send a letter without it being intercepted? Cambridge voters are clueless and care less about the police corruption. They just give money to the politicians and police and want to be left alone. Many are trust fund babies who never earned their money. Black racism runs wild in Cambridge.

Bill Ayers, Government Official?

Bill Ayers used bombs for political expression in the 1970s, was a professor at a major state university for many years, and is a friend of the President of the United States. The FBI used me to fight organized crime for 15 years and did not pay me. Ayers is praised by liberals and their journalist enablers. In Massachusetts, liberals run the state government sharing with Harvard affiliates. Local police and Harvard campus cops harass me, 24-hour surveillance, and conduct a 40-year character assassination campaign against me. For 22 years FBI permitted organized crime families to retaliate against me. Who runs the US government?

Psychiatry Corrupts Criminal Justice System

[From article]
"Damascena had no history of mental problems
Does that mean that if he did have a history of mental illness that would explain his crime and violence? How is that different from claiming that a Black man committed a crime and was violent because he is Black?
[. . .]
Ironically, just two months earlier, in commemoration of World Mental Health Day on October 10, the Health Department of the Federal University of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais had presented a week of programs about the dangers of extreme jealousy on its radio station. It was normal to feel jealousy, but only to acceptable limits, said the department’s Professor Rodrigo Nicolato.
One program of the psychiatric industry to increase its client base is to make expression of human emotions into mental illnesses. Psychiatrists (and women) know that few men are aware of their emotions. Psychiatrists and women use emotions to manipulate men. Psychiatry uses their knowledge of emotions to control humans and to manufacture mental illnesses for profit. Women use emotions only for control.
[. . .]
An excessive preoccupation about being cheated on could indicate a psychiatric problem, Professor Nicolato added, and it was important to pay attention to signs of excessive jealousy. “There are possibilities that a psychotic episode could happen because of jealousy,” Professor Nicolato explained. “The jealous can experience a neurotic conflict. There are situations in which any attitude could be perceived as a clear sign of treachery.” This could provoke a "psychological shock."
Jealousy is a human emotion. How can it be evil, wrong to express an emotion? The Catholic Church recognizes human emotions but psychiatrists criminalize them.
[. . .]
In the absence of any other explanation, this is the motive that police are working to confirm. “Relatives report that he was jealous of her. We don’t know if this was something in his mind or not. [. . .]” Officer Joselito Amaral told The Daily Beast. “What the family and everyone else has said is that there were no psychological problems.”
For police jealousy is motive. But psychiatry makes motive into illness for business purposes. This corrupts the criminal justice system and dehumanizes people.

Cuomo Makes Change in Form Over Substance

"The change in setting is a metaphor for the change we must undergo as a state," Cuomo said. "We must reconnect with the people and rebuild a relationship of trust." (BRENDAN SCOTT, "Cuomo moves annual speech out of legislative chamber," New York Post, December 29, 2010) Cuomo indicates continued political posturing, offering more changes of form over substance. There is a medium called television (and internet streaming) which allows "the people" to see a Governor's speech.

Canine Politics

My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day. He has his food prepared for him. He can eat whenever he wants, 24/7/365. His meals are provided at no cost to him. He visits the Dr. once a year for his checkup, and again during the year if any medical needs arise. For this he pays nothing, and nothing is required of him. He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than he needs, but he is not required to do any upkeep. If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up. He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep. He receives these accommodations absolutely free. He is living like a king, and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever. All of his costs are picked up by others who go out and earn a living every day.

I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a brick in the head,

Holy S**t,

Is this any way to run a government? Here is the protocol revealed by Justices of the MA Supreme Judicial Court. They wait for someone to get hurt to make policy.

Government and taxpayer funded agencies allied to address this problem will never succeed. Having a functioning two-parent family cannot be matched for bringing up children. The refusal of liberals to recognize this wastes taxpayer funds and permits increasing criminal youth behavior.

Parolee Shoots Policeman Dead, No One Was Watching

This guy sentenced to three life terms, was released and on parole when he shot dead a police officer during a robbery. Why wasn't he under police surveillance as I am 24/7? Police priorities make political harassment more important than public safaty. Appointing police, joins probation department and judiciary in needing scrutiny.

"In May 1986, Dominic Cinelli pleaded guilty to five armed robberies in Suffolk Superior Court and was sentenced to 25 years in prison, but cut his wrists in a holding cell and was rushed to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he used a toy gun to disarm a Suffolk County deputy, then used the deputy’s gun to steal a 1981 Ford station wagon — all while still wearing leg irons, newspaper accounts show.

He was on the run for about 10 days before he was caught at the Corner Cafe in the North End listening to a police scanner with a .32 caliber revolver in his pocket, news accounts state.

He was eventually put back in prison, where he was serving three life sentences, when in 2005, a state appeals court ruled that he should be eligible for parole, according to a record of his parole hearing. After four years, the Parole Board released him, and he walked in February 2009, state records show."

Psychiatry is a Court Business

Psychiatric industry promotes the fantasy that what they do is science. If it is science why can two psychiatrists have two contrasting opinions of a human's mental health? Moreover if what they testify in court is true why does it matter who pays for the psychiatrist as in this case. It looks a bit, just a bit as if one can purchase testimony of psychiatrists in court for consideration, i.e. money. Hello? Is anybody home in the courts?

[From article]
Judge Kenneth Castel ordered Heller examined by two shrinks, with the feds paying for one and Heller -- who allegedly evaded more than $2 million in income taxes on his Swiss account between 2006 and 2008 -- paying for the other.
Defense lawyer Marc Agnifilo, who asked for the hearing, cited Heller's "strongly held and apparently sincere belief that both his telephonic and in-person communications . . . are being monitored and tape recorded by other individuals."

Psychiatric Control Extends to Courts

This legal abuse sounds just like something a psychiatrist control freak would create. Through campaign contributions to the elected criminal class the drug industry working with the courtesan-psychiatric industry made laws like these to control their clients. Knowing that the entire psychiatric industry is personal opinion masquerading as science, they must maintain lack of accountability for their extreme otherwise criminal abuses. Not mentioned in this report are the abuses of police power to force citizens into these hell-holes masquerading as hospitals in order to silence their complaints about political, economic and personal criminal acts.

[From article]
"Slip and fall in a New York prison, or suffer abuse by its guards, and inmates can keep whatever they win in court. But for patients in state-run mental hospitals — people too ill to live on their own and too poor to pay for their care — the state can drain court-awarded damages, effectively deducting the cost of their stays in the very hospitals that failed or abused them.
“It’s a Catch-22, isn’t it?” said Leo G. Finucane, the lawyer who represented Mr. Langevin. “I need to go to this facility because I’m sick. But if they hurt me worse, they’re immune.”
Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo’s office, which handles these kinds of cases for New York State, declined repeated requests to discuss the matter."

DEA Is Now Global Spy Agency

[From article]
"Leaders of Mexico’s beleaguered military issued private pleas for closer collaboration with the drug agency, confessing that they had little faith in their own country’s police forces.
How is this different from American police? Mexico can't hide their corruption as American journalists willingly do.
[. . .]
In Venezuela, the local intelligence service turned the tables on the D.E.A., infiltrating its operations, sabotaging equipment and hiring a computer hacker to intercept American Embassy e-mails, the cables report.
Again what's the difference in America? Organized crime controls many cities and state goeverments with major influence in US Agencies and elected offices. Is the issue that the US crime families do not control all drug and money laundering operations?
[. . .]
The D.E.A. faced even more intense pressure last year from Panama, whose right-leaning president, Ricardo Martinelli, demanded that the agency allow him to use its wiretapping program — known as Matador — to spy on leftist political enemies he believed were plotting to kill him.
Does this suggest that US agencies do not abuse their powers for political purposes using telephone companies and landlords to watch their targets' private lives? Instead of using the illegal product in courts FBI criminals forward it to friendly FBI informant journalists.
[. . .]
Mr. Martinelli threatened to expel the drug agency from the country altogether, saying other countries, like Israel, would be happy to comply with his intelligence requests. Or some other country's spies?
[. . .]
Created in 1973, the D.E.A. has steadily built its international turf, an expansion primarily driven by the multinational nature of the drug trade, but also by forces within the agency seeking a larger mandate. Since the 2001 terrorist attacks, the agency’s leaders have cited what they describe as an expanding nexus between drugs and terrorism in further building its overseas presence. If this is the justification why does the DEA refuse to help other countries in their fight against "terrorism?" Is terror the good that justifies all abuses of police powers within the US aganst civilian citizens too?
[. . .]
Both men were charged with agreeing to illegal arms sales to informants posing as weapons buyers for Colombian rebels. Notably, neither man was charged with violating narcotics laws.
CBS News broadcast the arrest on its 60 Minutes show. No journalist asked the question why the DEA was focused on arms trafficking. Is Interpol as corrupt as the FBI?
[. . .]
Top-to-bottom corruption in many West African countries made it hard for diplomats to know whom to trust.
Do Americans know who to trust or are they as clueless about the corruption of US law enforcement?

Crash: Film Review

This is a great attempt to address discrimination and stereotypes in contemporary Los Angeles. It has some good dialogue and some that is contrived. Missing from the diversity scrutiny is the usual forgotten child, i.e., persons with disabilities. Like police, politicians, lawyers, courts and journalists this film ignores the disability community. Hollywood includes homosexuals, and Jews in many productions, but seldom includes disabilities unless it shows the human services industry, psychiatry or the drug industry in a positive light. Several misperceptions focus on how trouble appears when there is none due to the tricks of the human mind. As Mark Twain observed "It's not what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you think you know for sure that just ain't so."

Plot Summary for
Crash (2004)

Several stories interweave during two days in Los Angeles involving a collection of inter-related characters, a police detective with a drugged out mother and a thieving younger brother, two car thieves who are constantly theorizing on society and race, the white district attorney and his irritated and pampered wife, a racist white veteran cop (caring for a sick father at home) who disgusts his more idealistic younger partner, a successful Hollywood director and his wife who must deal with the racist cop, a Persian-immigrant father who buys a gun to protect his shop, a Hispanic locksmith and his young daughter who is afraid of bullets, and more.

Citizens applaud the arrest of a woman for refusing to allow TSA employees to feel her breasts. This reveals that the idea of freedom from government abuse is alien to many citizens. In the name of good all freedoms can be destroyed. Few privileged citizens of the nation understand this. Fewer are willing to fight for freedoms. They willingly yield their freedoms in the name of security. How is this different from what happened in Germany under Hitler?

Police Ignore Wealthy Criminals

Four generations of inherited wealth created this eccentric millionaire, with no accountability from the criminal justice system. No one watched him. But police, and their criminal associates among the Communist persuasion watch me 24/7. This after six crime families took turns harassing me and defaming me for 40 years saying I was a Communist. The FBI added retired drug dealer, mentally ill and racist to the mix. Hoover is dead. His legacy of being the Arsonist and the Fire Chief lives on.

Police found Busch at his home six hours later, claiming he had suffered amnesia. After a seven-month investigation, Arizona authorities decided not to press charges.

In 1985, he was charged with assault after a high-speed chase that ended when St. Louis police shot a tire of Busch's Mercedes. He was acquitted when the case went to trial."

AP Panders for Drug Industry

The notion of "a chemical imbalance " is a fantasy promoted by the drug industry. There are no tests for chemical imbalances. But even if there were, there is no chemical balance against which to measure. The AP continues to deceive consumers on behalf of the drug industry and the psychiatrc industry. Bad enough. Why does the Washington Post print the garbage?

Mayor Bloomberg Helps the Wealthy

The billionaire Mayor shows his administration helps wealthy and powerful constituents not vulnerable citizens. (SALLY GOLDENBERG and BRUCE GOLDING, "Mike defends city's mosque help," New York Post, December 25, 2010) He says, "our responsibility is: Anybody that walks in the door that needs help, our job is to help them. [. . .] When the pope came to town, the Catholic New York Archdiocese asked for help." Does the Mayor help write press releases for homeless persons and those denied access to government services due to disability?

NY Gov Commutes Light Sentence of Racial Killer

Many wealthy and prominent Black Americans live in the past and continue their Jihad against white people who had nothing to do with historical racial abuses. In this case a black man living in upscale Long Island New York, blamed fantasies of the past and shot dead an unarmed white teen. The incompetent Black Governor of New York who showed little concern for laws during his lawless tenure encourages vigilantism by commuting the sentence of this man, convicted and sentenced to four months for the killing.

Pill To Inhibit Sexual Desires Now Available

Here's more technology which will likely be used by state police powers to punish humans and to deny them their humanity and dignity. Look for strong support for this new drug from the control freaks among police, the political class, the psychiatric industry. They will see this as a blessed form of treatment to stop sexual predators. But like the wrongful convictions and abuses of power by police, lawyers, courts and psychiatrists there will lots of criminal abuses that remain unaddressed.

MA DA Shows Bigotry

Journalist Johnson says, "A British citizen with a history of mental illness pleaded guilty yesterday to second-degree murder." (O’Ryan Johnson, "Brit pleads guilty in grandma slay," Boston Herald, December 23, 2010) Does he suggest that the mental illness caused the murder? The report does not mention whether psychiatric chemicals were ingested by the defendant. The drug industry fears any mention of drugs with violence. Even the drug-industry-controlled FDA knows that drugs can cause violence. Especially when they are started then stopped. If stopping causes violence why start? It is good for business to have court ordered druggings. The DA shows his support for the psychiatric industry and bigotry contrary to state and US laws: he argues that a disability causes crime! Would he argue that being black causes crime? Has this politicians ever questioned what the psychiatric charlatans say under oath in court? Allowing mitigation of crime due to a fake illness shows how misguided the courts are these days. The DA shows a lack of awareness of the abuses of psychiatry by police and defense lawyers to avoid due process.

Sowell on Intelligence, Pundits

[From article]
"Let's face it, most of us are not half as smart as we may sometimes think we are-- and for intellectuals, not one-tenth as smart.
[. . .]
Neither the Bible, the Torah nor the Koran mentions Christmas trees. Yet some secular zealots try to ban Christmas trees on government property, based on the doctrine of "separation of church and state"-- a doctrine found nowhere in the Constitution.

More disturbing than any of the issues of our time are the many people who debate those issues as contests in talking points, rather than as attempts to get at the truth. Too many people debate as if the point is to show who is smarter, rather than which conclusion is correct."

Kitty Werthmann

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
Thomas Jefferson

After America , There is No Place to Go"

By: Kitty Werthmann

What I am about to tell you is something you've probably never heard or will ever read in history books.

I believe that I am an eyewitness to history. I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. We elected him by a landslide - 98% of the vote... I've never read that in any American publications. Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.

In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25% inflation and 25% bank loan interest rates.

Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn't want to work; there simply weren't any jobs. My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people - about 30 daily.

The Communist Party and the National Socialist Party were fighting each other. Blocks and blocks of cities like Vienna , Linz , and Graz were destroyed. The people became desperate and petitioned the government to let them decide what kind of government they wanted.

We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany , where Hitler had been in power since 1933. We had been told that they didn't have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living. Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group -- Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria ... We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back. Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.

We were overjoyed, and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed.

After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn't support his family. Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been required to give up for marriage.

Hitler Targets Education - Eliminates Religious Instruction for Children:

Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my school room to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler's picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn't pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang "Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles," and had physical education.

Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail. The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free. We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.

My mother was very unhappy. When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn't do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun - no sports, and no political indoctrination. I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing. Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler. It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn't exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.

Equal Rights Hits Home:

In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn't work, you didn't get a ration card, and if you didn't have a card, you starved to death. Women who stayed home to raise their families didn't have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.

Soon after this, the draft was implemented. It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps. During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys. They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines. When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat. Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.

Hitler Restructured the Family Through Daycare:

When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers. You could take your children ages 4 weeks to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, 7 days a week, under the total care of the government. The state raised a whole generation of children. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.

Health Care and Small Business Suffer Under Government Controls:

Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna . After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything. When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full. If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and immigrated to other countries.

As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80% of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families. All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables. Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he h ad to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn't meet all the demands. Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

We had consumer protection. We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, and then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

"Mercy Killing" Redefined:

In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps . The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated. So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work. I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van. I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months. They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.

The Final Steps - Gun Laws:

Next came gun registration... People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

Totalitarianism didn't come quickly; it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria ... Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.

After World War II, Russian troops occupied Austria . Women were raped, preteen to elderly. The press never wrote about this either. When the Soviets left in 1955, they took everything that they could, dismantling whole factories in the process. They sawed down whole orchards of fruit, and what they couldn't destroy, they burned. We called it The Burned Earth. Most of the population barricaded themselves in their houses. Women hid in their cellars for 6 weeks as the troops mobilized, those who couldn’t paid the price. There is a monument in Vienna today, dedicated to those women who were massacred by the Russians.

This is an eye witness account. It's true...those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.

America Truly is the Greatest Country in the World.

Don't Let Freedom Slip Away!

Increased Mental Illness, Increased Profits

One observer noticed the connection between mental illnesses and business. It is pervasive, from creating the illnesses by consensus to the police power of the state being used to enforce diagnoses. Psychiatry is personal opinion masquerading as science. Psychiatry is a means of social control with no due process protections. Psychiatrty criminalizes constitutionally protected speech and behavior because psychiatrists do not like or do not understand the speech or behavior.
