Obama Attacks Social Security And Medicare

Picture 2Warlord Obama is now obeying the KGB clones in the CIA and the warbots in the Pentagon and has utterly transformed himself into a right wing Republican clone.  He is also obeying the Big Bankers who he and Bush bailed out this year.  These ungrateful critters want Obama to cut Social Security and Medicare while increasing the Pentagon spending so the orator is going around, trying to convince us, slitting our throats will save America.  Feh.

I am now totally disgusted with Obama.  But then, I was a Kucinich/Ron Paul supporter because both men at least were honest about what changes they wanted to make and both were aiming some of their rhetorical guns at the Federal Reserve.  Both were slaughtered by the media leaving us the final choice of one of three warmongers.  I was not happy about this.

 

But I was happy a minority reached the White House, this is still a singular matter of great importance.  Too bad, he isn’t a hero.  But then, the right wing attacks him for being a ‘socialist’ which I find utterly ridiculous.  Where, pray tell, does he act like a socialist?  Supporting Social Security, a system created by Otto von Bismark, an imperialist German working for the Kaiser 150 years ago?  Gads.

 

USNews.com: Political Bulletin: Thursday, May 14, 2009

In what media reports are broadly describing as an about-face, —whenever it comes to supporting the Constitution or supporting our imperial police state, all our leaders suddenly spin around and yell, ‘Sieg Heil!’ to the secret societies and secretive think tanks and of course, AIPAC—President Obama announced yesterday that he will fight the release of photos allegedly showing US soldiers abusing detainees in Iraq and Afghanistan. The story generated coverage in all three network newscasts including the lead in two of them and earned front-page headlines in major newspapers. The ACLU and other groups are reported to be furious over the President’s decision, but the overall tone of the coverage with some exceptions is more analytical that it is critical.  This is media code for ‘making excuses on behalf of the Real Rulers who are yanking their leashes or dog piling naked reporters on top of each other while taking embarrassing photos of them—On ABC World News, for example, George Stephanopoulos said: “The White House argues that first of all, the President did realize he could make new legal arguments. —-For years, I have begged our rulers to read the transcripts of the Nüremberg Trials.  Alas, they read the lawyer’s arguments on behalf of the Nazis and decided, ‘This is great!  Yes, we were only following orders!’  Etc.—The second is, these commanders came in hard on the President. Gen. Odierno in Iraq, Gen. McKiernan in Afghanistan, Gen. Petraeus, and they said, you are harming our troops. —Torturing people we kidnap is OK so long as those we are fighting don’t know we are actually Nazis.  The flaw in this belief system is simple:  They know we are Nazis because we are butchering them, kidnapping them and torturing them.  Duh.  How can they miss this?  We do it every day to them, obviously!  The President was convinced by this argument.”

So, this is why Hitler and his gang kept the Nazi concentration camps secret, you see.  If anyone knew about them, why, they would say, ‘Kill Nazi German soldiers and get Hitler and kill him!’  Unfortunately, since the Nazis were running around the place, killing and kidnapping whole populations, they figured pretty fast, the Nazis were Nazis and not Unicorns.  

 

Poor Obama!  He has to pretend that keeping CIA/KGB torture secret, we save our military adventures because this will FOOL the Afghanis who have tons of experience with the KGB.  HAHAHA.  Right!  The moon falls from the skies as the unicorns prance on the meadows while sphnixes sing of death.

 

OK: let’s picture what really happened.  The military industrialist stooges sat Obama down and played the Zapruder film.  Actually, they didn’t have to do this.  The Bilderbergers had their secret meeting and squealed at him, ‘We have to PRETEND to be good, not utter, craven, evil gnomes!  Put on a mask and tell the American people that torture is good, the Constitution is toilet paper and saving bankers is more important than social security.’  He said, ‘Will I get $100 million in speaking fees when I am driven out of the White House by screaming hordes of angry Americans?’ 

 

They said, ‘Look, we pay that nincompoop Bush Jr money to smirk and make jokes while doing nothing sane!  And we have that double-voice lying bastard, Clinton, giving speeches that are hard to follow because he literally talks with two voices at the same time but he does make some rational sense unlike the drunken ravings of Bush…we don’t pay Carter a penny, he is a non-person, look: we destroyed him utterly and now, he is in the Darkness.  You will be rich if you follow us and this means, killing the Constitution, killing the Baby Boomer seniors and killing lots of Muslim babies.’

 

‘Wow!’ said Obama.  ‘I can be a multimillionaire by making a dozen speeches a year in front of annoyed gnomes looking for sex and drugs!  I can’t wait!’

 

Obama Says U.S. Long-Term Debt Load ‘Unsustainable’ (Update1) – Bloomberg.com

 

President Barack Obama, calling current deficit spending “unsustainable,” warned of skyrocketing interest rates for consumers if the U.S. continues to finance government by borrowing from other countries.

Damn right, it is ‘unsustainable’.  So, why did he hike military spending by over 6% this year?  Eh?

“We can’t keep on just borrowing from China,” Obama said at a town-hall meeting in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, outside Albuquerque. “We have to pay interest on that debt, and that means we are mortgaging our children’s future with more and more debt.”

We could balance the budget.  All Obama has to do is invite me to his budget meetings and I will show up with a meat cleaver.  I will take the paperwork and begin slicing it up.

Holders of U.S. debt will eventually “get tired” of buying it, causing interest rates on everything from auto loans to home mortgages to increase, Obama said. “It will have a dampening effect on our economy.”

Right now, interest rates are at near zero.

The president pledged to work with Congress to shore up entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare and said he was confident that the House and Senate would pass health-care overhaul bills by August.

“Most of what is driving us into debt is health care, so we have to drive down costs,” he said.

This stupid bastard has a higher IQ than Bush so why is he so stupid?  See what happens when the Bilderbergers wave future speaking fees in front of his face!

Obama also prodded Congress to pass restrictions on credit- card issuers, saying consumers need “strong and reliable” protection from unfair practices and hidden fees.

Kiss your credit cards goodbye.

“It’s time for reform that’s built on transparency, accountability, and mutual responsibility, values fundamental to the new foundation we seek to build for our economy,” the president said.

 

Transparency?  So, where are the torture photos?  Eh?  And why isn’t Obama opening the lid of the CIA’s secret cesspool?  It is worse: Obama is considering closing Gitmo and removing the prisoners to US prisons and then HOLDING THEM WITHOUT TRIAL FOREVER.

 

This is called ‘ripping up the Constitution of the United States.’  As we remember, both the head of the craven Supreme Court that claimed, we don’t need to count the votes in a Presidential election because we don’t really vote for Presidents [!!!!!] got the swear in wrong and I suspect, this is because they all view the Constitution as some sort of farce, or a barrier they must overcome so they can directly tap into power.

This is why the Federal Reserve law was allowed to stand.  Obviously, it completely upends the Constitution which lays the burden of dealing with the currency on Congress, not the Bank of England!  Here are more headlines from the last 24 hours:

  1. Medicare, Social Security Funds Worsen in Recession (Update2) – Bloomberg.com
  2. Barack Obama unveils $2 trillion healthcare cuts – Telegraph
  3. Pelosi in public dispute with CIA over interrogation | Reuters  
  4. Critics Decry Wording of Notre Dame’s Honorary Degree for Obama – Presidential Politics | Political News – FOXNews.com

It is obvious, all over the media, this business of ‘Oh my god!  Social Security is EVIL!’.  And of course, ‘Cut Medicare!’ is the other battle cry.  I happen to be against putting the aging into hospitals and treating over and over again, as they die.  I feel, after a certain age, if you are going, let’s go with some dignity and the least dignified place on earth is a hospital.    I want to die at home.  Better still, haul me outside, to the top of the mountain where I can die with the eagles and vultures.

 

By the way, here is the official budget information site run by our own goverment:

 

GovBudget.com

Picture 1

Medicare is $464.2 billion and Social Security which pays its own way 120%, is $617 billion but IS NOT PART OF THE BUDGET SINCE IT IS SELF-FUNDING, indeed, it is skimmed for the other parts.  And the Military is $618 billion, bigger than SS and much bigger than Medicare.  Yet, in all the articles, speeches and hysteria about cutting stuff, NO ONE MENTIONS THE MILITARY.  Except us outsiders on the internet.

 

We know from the election cycle that there was only one option allowed at all times.  For example, no one was allowed to talk about cutting Pentagon spending.  Nor was anyone allowed to talk about curbing AIPAC. The uniformity imposed was so great, the only ‘choices’ we had were trivial ones like whether we supported teen sex [astonishingly, the GOP gave that its heartiest shout of approval!] or if we supported gay marriage. 

 

The unwed teens/versus/gay marriage debate was utterly stupid and infantile.  Our country was facing financial suicide and this was the #1 topic in the media covering the candidates. Now that we had our little faux election with choices that were really [as far as the power brokers are concerned] nonexistent [they didn’t care if Hillary, Obama or McCain won, it was all the same to them] we get to have a new debate, pushed by the robot in the White House, outlining how to cut our budget deficit.  And of course, being a tool, Obama can only talk about two items: SS and Medicare.

 

Here is an article from last year’s super-secret Trilateral Commission meeting.  These meetings, like all the other like-kind meetings, is secret.  This means, they are really CONSPIRACIES.  These conspirators need to drive everyone insane who talks about them so they encourage stupid conspiracy theories alongside real conspiracy actions.  These fake conspiracy stories cloak the real ones.

 

April 2008;  GLOBAL ELITE GATHER IN D.C./Trilateral Commission members want suffering U.S. taxpayers to shell out even more money « The Proud Political Junkie’s Gazette

Luminaries at the Trilateral Commission meeting in Washington expressed confidence that they own all three major presidential candidates, who, despite political posturing, will support sovereignty-surrendering measures such as NAFTA and the “North American Union.”

‘Free Trade’ runs alongside ‘privatize the Pentagon’ with these creepy conspirators. They also use quasi-military forces. That is, DARPA, the CIA, the NSA and now, Homeland Security. They love the many satellite spy systems as well as tapping illegally into the internet and all communication services. The recent revelations that the Democratic leadership knew all about torture as well as the illegal spying and ENDORSE BOTH has shaken the Democratic supporters of Obama. The Daily Ko crew is unable to cope with this utter betrayal.

Click here to see the very first Star Trek: The Original Series – The Man Trap-episode.

This old, old Star Trek episode is all about this alien sucking life from humans and it can appear as anyone it wishes via hallucinations. This is how the ruling elites operate only the hijack humans via bribery and fear.

“John has always supported free trade, even while campaigning before union leaders,” said one. “Hil and Barack are pretending to be unhappy about some things, but that’s merely political posturing. They’re solidly in support.” He was referring to Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Barack Obama (D-Ill.).

Mrs. Clinton, they noted, held strategy sessions as first lady on how to get Congress to approve NAFTA “without changes.” As president, they agreed, she would do no more than “dot an i or cross a t.”

Candidate Obama has not denied news reports in Canada that his top economic adviser, Austan Goolsbee, assured Canadian diplomats that the senator would keep NAFTA intact and his anti-trade talk is just “campaign rhetoric.”

When this article appeared, it was hard to tell if the writers were making things up or correct about their information. It is hard to check, of course, due to the media conspiring with the conspirators to keep the truth hidden from view. PETRIFIED ABOUT PAUL

While they are confident they can deal with any “potential president,” the Trilateralists paid huge tribute to Ron Paul in an equally large twist of irony, by expressing alarm that he is causing “significant future damage.”

ONLY IF RON PAUL RAN AS A THIRD PARTY CANDIDATE OR DISRUPTED THE GOP CONVENTION.

They expressed concern that Paul’s rallies have attracted multitudes of young people who are getting “their political education.” They want Republicans to pressure Paul to drop out now and stop his education rallies. This assignment was given to Thomas Foley, former U.S. House speaker….

Obviously, the GOP pressure worked. Mysteriously and infuriatingly, suddenly Ron Paul pulled his punches and supported McCain. He is happy to be the outlier Congressman while baaaing like a lamb in the midst of wolves, trying to keep his flock inside this particular cave. This is probably why the main supporters of the ‘Tea Party’ campaign are WITHOUT AN AGENDA AT ALL. They have nothing!

DUH! They are tools just like McCain or Obama. They are run by a gang who are connected to the dark side of the GOP, the DARPA side, the ‘mislead people’ side. They are there to misdirect the public from looking at the Pentagon towards supporting cutting of Social Security! These are sheep being fleeced by the wolves who laugh at them.

The Trilaterals got down to real work on Saturday, April 26, with a high-powered panel called “U.S. Foreign and Domestic Policy: Broad Outlines for a New Administration.”

It was presided over by journalistic pimp David Gergen, who will write nothing about TC in his magazine, U.S News and World Report. Also participating were Kenneth Duberstein, former White House chief of staff for President Ronald Reagan; Strobe Talbot, president of the Brookings Institution and former deputy secretary of state; and Joseph Nye, former assistant secretary of defense. Henry Kissinger, former secretary of state and long-time Bilderberg leader, was present and listed as a participant. But a TC staff member crossed his name out. Some speculated he had throat problems.

Kissinger always sounds like a frog that is choking on a fish. One can barely understand a word he says in his Teutonic rumblings. Not that these people need to understand him. He is a clear example of ‘the MEDIUM is the message.’ He appears and everyone knows exactly what is going on. This is why we knew the 9/11 Commission was a cover up. The Trilateralists wanted Kissinger to run it.

This panel had these orders for the next president: increase foreign aid across the board because “America does not pay its fair share,” pay up the arrears in UN dues, allow as many immigrants into the United States as want to come and provide “amnesty” for illegal aliens already here….

It has been a year since that article appeared.  We see now, pretty clearly, that the assertions of the reporter who was not mainstream but strictly online, was correct.  I can’t express how furious I am with Obama’s campaign to force us to give up our own lives so he and his gang of Kissingerian Nazis can run war after war against the poorest peasants on earth or on wild conquests of oil-pumping nations. 

 

Already, the many South American countries pumping oil and gas are getting armed again, they are leaning to China and Russia for help, they are preparing for Obama’s wars and coups against them.  Note that Obama isn’t stopping the embargo of Cuba or the embargo of Gaza, he is not stopping our embargo of Iran, either, he is doing EXACTLY what McCain wanted to do INCLUDING STRIPPING US OF OUR SOCIAL SECURITY.

 

Already, the banking gnomes have stripped us of our 401k retirement funds, the free trade machine has stripped workers of their retirement funds in many industries as US companies go bankrupt and are replaced by FOREIGNERS who own our systems, run our economy and have zero interest in us retiring, once we can’t buy their stuff, they want us to drop dead.

 

This is why I call the entire ‘free trade’ business TREASON.  And I wish Ron Paul would do this.  Ross Perot did this very briefly and then, like all the others, ran off to become a pirate and to strip us of our wealth, who will save us?

 

We have to look in the mirror: there is only one person, ourselves.  We have to fight this alien creature that sucks out all our salt and leaves us for dead.  Ask Captain Kirk and Spock.

    Gleaned from another web site:

    Of all the enemies of true liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other.

    War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.

    In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people.

    The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manner and of morals, engendered in both.

    No nation can preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.

    War is in fact the true nurse of executive aggrandizement. In war, a physical force is to be created; and it is the executive will, which is to direct it.

    In war, the public treasuries are to be unlocked; and it is the executive hand which is to dispense them.

    In war, the honors and emoluments of office are to be multiplied; and it is the executive patronage under which they are to be enjoyed; and it is the executive brow they are to encircle.

    The strongest passions and most dangerous weaknesses of the human breast; ambition, avarice, vanity, the honorable or venal love of fame, are all in conspiracy against the desire and duty of peace.
    (James Madison, 4th President, Bill of Rights author, Congressman, Cabinet Member, also called the “Father of the U.S. Constitution”; above quote is from his “Political Observations,” April 20, 1795, in Letters and Other Writings of James Madison, Volume IV, page 491, emphasis added).

    Nobody’s talking about raising the cap for SS, or collecting from investment income. obama’s definitely out to screw us.

  2. openlyhidden

    do you think you will ever compromise even a little bit to gain some allies to help reclaim our country? ha! not a chance. well i will take your word for it that the tea-baggers are republican “tools”, although i still think denninger seems mighty independent to me and he was a tea-bagger fellow. oh well. the important news today is that the newest celebrity phenom, carrie prejean, will get her shot at hosting “fox and friends”. she and the donald said so this am.

    There are 2 things that will short circuit American’s minds on understanding their world
    …..
    One is Race
    …..
    Two are taxes
    ……
    Take either one and most people’s minds will
    short circuit back to the primitive reptilian cortex part of the brain that’s in agreement with the right wing.
    …..
    90pct of Americans will become right wingers on those two topics. We cant get over our inability to
    realize that taxes are part of maintaining a civilization. Instead of bitching about where the tax money goes, we are programmed like circus monkeys, via our primitive brain functions, to
    reject taxes and blame things on “others” ie, minorities

    I organized many things over the years. I recognize what ‘co-opting’ is all about: someone bends real anger and concern to a NEW END. The same clowns that want to persuade us to kill Social Security, a socialist program created by the German ruling elites 150 years ago [HAHAHA]—they never stop or pause, they constantly seek weaknesses to exploit and they latched onto the Tea Bag group as gullible and easily misled.

    So they are now shoving relentlessly via the media, to convince these poor saps, they should stab SS in the chest and kill it and then lo and behold, they will be free….DEAD. Got that: DEAD. Not rich, not free, not unchained but D-E-A-D.

    In the good old days, people like many of the Tea Bag demonstrators didn’t live to see their 45th birthdays. They died. And this, during a time the upper classes lived long lives. I know, I come from that class.

    My godmother lived to be 105 and died in 1966. She lived her whole life in a huge Victorian mansion. She had a wonderful life AND DIDN’T DO LABOR. Nearly everyone who worked for her died long, long before I was born. But not my grandfather. He also lived a long time.

    Read the lives of the rich from 100 years ago. Most of them lived a fairly long time. Then look at the death stats for the workers! Day and night.

    When Germany came up with the SS concept, Bismark thought, ‘Soldiers will gladly die for us if they know their parents and children can live long lives’ and ‘If we take care of the workers, they get healthy and strong and can fight’ and certainly, the superior health of German soldiers was obvious. They nearly won WWI and then, WWII, in quick succession. And the only thing that stood in their path was the US which copied Germany’s SS program in the nick of time.

    We kill this while the Chinese copy Germany, we are DOOMED.

  5. nah

    from a perspective of tangible change ron paul is a great candidate… otherwise we have alot of bets on the table and a decent amount of chips to play… i gamble for fun… but i dont gamble
    .
    there is an easiness to what we do… kind of unnatural… i have a sence that better planning and ‘inteligence’ could have acomplished alot more… but it didnt… doesnt mean will will save a single dime
    .
    so how does the system work… let me tell you it relies heavily on the promise of US workers the same as ever
    .

    .
    the bottom dollar is demoninated in 1z

  6. Had someone like Ron Paul quit the GOP and took lead of the Tea Party movement upon invitation, they would never have been hijacked by Fox News et al into becoming the Republicans’ “teabaggers.”

    I have a solution to the SS problem: hike everyone’s income taxes by about 13% to include all the SS payroll tax for each. Hike the maximum income for full SS tax ratio to at least 250G’s. Have businesses count all its payroll taxes costs as wages and salaries expenses. The SS payroll tax is then fully shown as an employee salary deduction and is counted as a tax credit against the income tax.

    Solution to Medicare: a five-year transition to Canadian style single-payer beginning with RIGHT NOW permitting, then requiring that all business and individual purchaers of insurance buy through State group insurance commissions like this one: http://www.mass.gov/?pageID=afagencylanding&L=4&L0=Home&L1=Insurance+%26+Retirement&L2=Oversight+Agencies&L3=Group+Insurance+Commission&sid=Eoaf

    Solution to Budget Deficits: Same as Elaine’s cut the MIC by 80 to 90%.

    Solution to Trade Deficits: Same as Elaine’s put up trade barriers and tarriffs. Subsidise exports!

  7. Oh, and I forgot about insurance: premiums will gradually be replaced by Carbon Taxes. Beginning with a hefty gasoline tax!

  8. emsnews

    Tariffs funded our government once upon a time.

  9. criticalcontrarian

    Elaine, the reason why the CIA, Pentagon et al will not easily give up Afghanistan is quite simple, it contributes roughly 30% of the $1.5 trillion a year narcotics trade profits. Those are 2004 UN figures. Today’s figures are probably 25% more in my estimate. An untraceable, unquestionable, unaccountable and unholy resource inflicted on humanity for demons disguised as humans…

  10. criticalcontrarian

    Correction: “inflicted on humanity by demons disguised as humans.”

    The military industrialist stooges sat Obama down and played the Zapruder film.

    Hilarious!

    Look, we pay that nincompoop Bush Jr money to smirk and make jokes while doing nothing sane!

    Crazy!

    ‘Wow!’ said Obama. ’I can be a multimillionaire by making a dozen speeches a year in front of annoyed gnomes looking for sex and drugs! I can’t wait!’

    Too much!

    Where on earth do you come up with this stuff? This is just classic. It should be taught in universities across the country. Maybe then our country would have a chance to survive.

    As for electing a minority, I would’ve voted for you before voting for any of those phony white guys.

    One of your best posts. So close to the truth. God help us all from these fiends running things.

    As we can see from this last article, voters who elected leaders and legislators, starting with those Reaganite GOP mongrels, believing they could cheat just a little bit on the Constitution and the rule of law, are now discovering that what they thought was just a little innocent cheating and fudging, has grown into a devouring monster….and some cries of alarm we hear are genuine.

    Cheating on the Constitution and the rule of law is very much like a very fertile, pure, young virgin girl having unprotected sex with a very fertile boy….she is gonna get herself knocked up! And when she does, she isn’t just a little bit pregnant….she is fully pregnant…and fully corrupted…..forever…for better or worse, never to be the same again.

    So it is with our dear nation…..the genie of unbridled greed and outright hubris and corruption is out of the bottle, and will not be stuffed back in again without suffering on a very large scale…..our nemesis.

    And that suffering will occur when those battle stressed troops return to no jobs and no future…and families living in poverty.

    And when their aging dads and moms go to the hospital for treatment for those chronic age related diseases…and are turned away…when they might have lived a few years longer.

    And when prices rise exponentially, and SS payments do not increase to match the costs of living…and old people have no children to rely on….and are left to sit and die alone…in the cold.

    When both young and old are turned into the streets because they have no income to afford housing.

    When protesters are brutally oppressed to serve up a lesson to them and others who might want to protest and complain.

    When working in government itself becomes like joining the mafia…one wrong move, and you’re dead.

    When war making policy becomes so incoherent that leaders make war on others, but cannot defend against others who might make war on them…..while creating the conditions where others desire to make war upon us all.

    This evil genie is growing to enormous size, and he is already, if Elaine’s article is correct, impossible to stuff back into his tiny bottle.

    And Alladin Obama just keeps massaging and rubbing the fucking bottle.

    and better pious rhetoric.
    ……
    I’m beginning to miss Bush !

    Star Trek was actually ‘green lighted’ by Lucille Ball.

    The network hated Star Trek. They tried to get rid of it every season but Roddenberry fought to keep it on the air. In the third season they sacked some of the more creative people and the quality diminished to the point where they could finally get rid of it.

    But not before ‘The Cloud Minders” was turned out for example:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cloud_Minders

    a little story about ruling elites, slaves, and terrorism.

    For some reason it soon became extremely ‘uncool’ to be a Star Trek fan for young males. Why all the hype? It’s just a TV show, right?- A TV show that might inspire a young person to think about things from time to time, as corny (and funny!) as it was.

    Now they are finalizing the desecration of Star Trek as a mindless thrill flick in which the original characters are completely replaced with changelings.

    ‘Rollerball’ was done the same way.

  17. emsnews

    Watching the oldest episodes, I am amazed at how much I remember of them. The story telling was 90% of the value of the show. The actors spoke very clearly and the psychological/intellectual probing was why I adored it after only two shows, back when it was first broadcast.

    Yes, the TV moguls hated Star Trek. It was a dangerous show in some ways. Like the darker, Outer Limits show, it probed the concept of empire, war and peace as well as political paranoia.

  18. You guys are awesome 🙂 keep up the good work.
