The Free Thought Project,The Daily Sheeple & FREEDOM OR ANARCHY Campaign of Conscience are dedicated to holding those who claim authority over our lives accountable. “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” - George Orwell, 1984

"Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained... now everywhere is war." - - Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia - Popularized by Bob Marley in the song War

STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY

The right to tell the Government to kiss my Ass Important Message for All Law Enforcers Freedom; what it is, and what it is not. Unadulterated freedom is an unattainable goal; that is what the founders of America knew and understood, which was their impetus behind the documents that established our great nation. They also knew that one of the primary driving forces in human nature is the unconscious desire to be truly free. This meant to them that mankind if totally left completely unrestricted would pursue all things in life without any awareness or acknowledgement of the consequences of his/her own actions leaving only the individual conscience if they had one as a control on behavior. This would not bode well in the development of a great society. Yet the founders of America chose to allow men/women as much liberty as could be, with minimum impact on the freedom or liberties of others

The Language of Political Scams and Flim-Flams

The Language of Political Scams and Flim-Flams

10 words that should be in your vocabulary.


10 Devious, Dated Words for Deceptions


The language of scams and flim-flams is colorful. No one likes to get bamboozled, but the words for getting duped are creative and vivid. This creativity extends to out-of-fashion words for dastardly swindles. Make sure to use one of the following the next time you get hornswoggled.

1. CANOODLE

This days, when we hear about canoodling, it’s usually two celebrities playing tonsil hockey or enjoying a wholesome hug. But this word has a more disreputable history. Canoodling has always had a sense of two people getting close, but originally one was trying to rip the other off. An Oxford English Dictionary example from 1864 describes someone “adept in that branch of persuasive dialectics known as ‘conoodling’.” Come to think of it, persuasive dialectics is another solid good term for trying to sell someone a bridge.

2. BEGUNK

This word has nothing to do with gunk in the sense of grimy filth, though it may be worse: It’s a rare word for conning someone that dates from the 1700s. To begunk is to befool. Begunkcan also be a noun, meaning an example of such nefarious treachery.

3. BESWIKE

Here’s a similar term that has roots in Old English. If you’re a dastardly deceiver, you’re abeswiker.

4. POSSUMING

Since the mid-1800, folks have been possuming, and it’s related to the still-common expression playing possum. When you possum, you’re usually pretending to be sick or dead, most likely for financial gain. An 1846 use by R. G. A. Levinge explains and uses another deception-centric term: “Possuming is become an idiom; a term signifying any one who is humbugging or deceiving.”

5. CONEY-CATCHING

Coney was originally a term for a rabbit, but a coney-catcher is someone who’s pulled the rabbit out of the hat in a sneaky way, most likely involving a swindle. This term goes back to the 1500s. An 1894 use by poet Edmund Goose is a characteristic example: “At Hodsdon he is prevailed on to play cards with some coney-catchers, who fleece him of everything.”

6. FUBBERY

This word is a variation of fub (to deceive) which itself is a variation of fob. Next time a politician is accused of corruption, the press should accuse him of fubbery, a rubbery word that deserves a comeback.

7. GAGGEE

This is a word like tutee—a person who is tutored—but a gaggee is the victim of a gag, which has often referred to a deception over the years. An 1819 use by J.G. Lockhart uses the word in a description of the proper tone for successful con-artistry: “Whether the Gag come in the shape of a compliment to the Gaggee, or some wonderful story, gravely delivered with every circumstance of apparent seriousness.”

8. JUGGLERY

There’s a deep history linking juggling with magic, hoodoo, snake oil, and other mysterious or disreputable practices, so it’s no surprise that jugglery has sometimes referred to bamboozlement. The idea is that a huckster juggles words as smoothly as an actual juggler handles balls, pins, torches, or knives. An 1838 example by W. H. Prescott refers to “an example of political jugglery and falsehood,” a phrase that could be put to constant use today.

9. RANNYGAZOO

This colorful, fanciful term has been around since the late 1800s and can mean any sort of nonsense, but especially the kind meant to deceive. A folksy use from the Washington Post in 1896 (with an alternate spelling) shows how little trust the word conveys: “Now, thar's a sort of rannikaboo liar on earth, an' I don't mind him nor his fabrications none whatever.”

10. CRINK

This word’s history is surprising. All its meanings involve some kind of bend or twist, like a crink in the neck. But its very first meanings, in the early 1500s, involve lies and scams rather than physical twists. As the OED puts it, a crink is “An intricate, esp. deceptive, turn or twist of thought, speech, etc.; an intricate deception or sleight.” There’s also an unrelated meaning that’s super-cool: crinks and cranks are aches and pains, which can definitely arise in the noggin region if you get canoodled and possumed.
