Support Hobo Ed's Developments & Laughs Involving Government's Horrendous Travesties

 UPDATE 12/15/2017 Ed filed a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 Federal Law Suit in United States District Court, NH against the Corrupt Defendant Town Of Bartlett.                                            WELCOME MY FRIENDS, TO "OUR" HUMBLE ABODE 


  COMING SOON ..."BRITEHAVEN" : A  three month-plus Long Term Residential Treatment Center, (Alcohol as a Primary Addiction), located on Hobo Ed's commercial property in Bartlett, New Hampshire; former home to Lil' Man Snowmobile Rentals. This is an ideal location for this treatment facility: it's proximity to endless miles of hiking trials in the White Mountain National Forest (WMNF), is invaluable to a 'recovery strategy' (out back in the woods), and there's  a baseball field next door.  Saco river swim holes abound, only walking distance from "BRITEHAVEN."  Plenty of good trout fishing too. This will only act as a needed benefit to the recovering alcoholics, that will need those types of recreational amenities, that will support the total out-reach program at BRITEHAVEN.


 Let's hear some input from our community members, and interested parties, to what they have to say about "BRITE- HAVEN." Call  Ed  directly or email @  or please or call 603-387-9014 from 9-5 pm., 7 days.

BRITEHAVEN is seeking experienced Grant Writers;  some knowledge in web design a plus; an Associate Degree or higher education required. Prerequisite: Must have valid drivers licence, and be Clean and Sober for 2 years.

US Government Travesties


Five years of Prohibition have had, at least, this one benign effect: they have completely disposed of all the favorite arguments of the Prohibitionists. None of the great boons and usufructs that were to follow the passage of the Eighteenth Amendment has come to pass. There is not less drunkenness in the Republic, but more. There is not less crime, but more. There is not less insanity, but more. The cost of government is not smaller, but vastly greater. Respect for law has not increased, but diminished. READ MORE

Smoot-Hawley Tariff of 1930

The Great Depression began with the stock market crash in October 1929. However, the prior decade witnessed unprecedented economic growth. Government receipts failed to keep up with corporate profits. So, Congress passed the Smoot-Hawley Tariff to close the gap. Tariff rates hit historic levels on over 20,000 imported goods. This turned an economic downturn into the Great Depression. The depression helped lead to the rise of Hitler and World War II. After the war, the world decided it best to keep tariffs as low as possible. READ MORE

Bay of Pigs Invasion

The Bay of Pigs Invasion was a failed military invasion of Cuba undertaken by the CIA-sponsored paramilitary group Brigade 2506 on 17 April 1961.  READ MORE

Vietnam War

Dwight Eisenhower sent perfunctory advisers to South Vietnam, but warned against doing more. Douglas MacArthur advised that Vietnam was not worth fighting over. Lyndon Johnson ignored the advice and went to war. He hoped for a quick victory to halt the communists and prove his manhood to the voters. It cost 58,000 American lives, split the nation, destroyed the old New Deal coalition, and ended Johnson’s presidency. READ MORE

Watergate Scandal

Watergate was a major political scandal that occurred in the United States in the 1970s, following a break-in at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C. and President Richard Nixon's administration's attempted cover-up of its involvement.  READ MORE

Iraq Blunders

The Reagan Administration, using an Israeli-operated supply line set up through highly secret negotiations with the regime of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, last year began supplying U.S.-made missiles and weapons parts to Iran in exchange for Iran's aid in freeing Americans held hostage in Lebanon. One government official who refused to be identified called the Administration's decision to aid Iran in its war with Iraq "a major policy shift" that had been undertaken without the usual discussions within the executive branch and with intelligence and military experts in Congress.

USDA Discrimination Against African American Farmers

Pigford v. Glickman (1999) was a class action lawsuit against the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), alleging racial discrimination against African-American farmers in its allocation of farm loans and assistance between 1981 and 1996. READ MORE

Lewinski Scandal

The Lewinsky scandal was an American political sex scandal emerging in 1998, from a sexual relationship between 49-year-old President Bill Clinton and a 22-year-old White House employee, Monica Lewinsky. The news of this extra-marital affair and the resulting investigation eventually led to the impeachment of President Clinton in 1998 by the U.S.. READ MORE

Ruby Ridge

If you really want to understand what happened at Ruby Ridge to the Weavers, 8-12 hours of reading will give you much more information than a 90 minute movie. And with full details, it is harder for someone to "spin" some part of the story. The author of this website has read four books on the subject, and seen most of the videos produced. The truth becomes clear. The sequence becomes clear. The Weavers didn't want to bother anyone, hurt anyone, even be bothered by anyone. They tried to move as far out of harm's way as they could. But the FBI and ATF had written top priorities READ MORE

Katrina: Gov't Failure, Private Fraud

 As a congressional report blamed government-wide ineptitude for mishandling the Hurricane Katrina relief effort, a government accounting report called out misspending on hurricane efforts and the Justice Department announced widespread hurricane-related fraud. READ MORE

Birthers: Barack Obama Citizenship Conspiracy Theories

People who express doubts about Obama's eligibility or reject details about his early life are often informally called "birthers", a term that parallels[11] the nickname "truthers" for adherents of 9/11 conspiracy theories READ MORE

Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Environmental Tragedy

The Gulf of Mexico oil spill began on 20 April 2010 when the Deepwater Horizon offshore oil drilling rig operated by BP (known as British Petroleum until 2000) exploded and sank. Oil began leaking at a rate eventually estimated at 2.5 million gallons per day, resulting in massive environmental degradation. The federal government reported that 206 million gallons of crude oil leaked before the spill was stopped on July 15. The blowout killed eleven workers. Despite the known toxicity of the dispersant Corexit, the Obama administration dumped millions of gallons of the hazardous chemical into the Gulf of Mexico with C-130 aircraft provided by the U.S. Coast Guard and the Air Force.

US Shoots Itself In the Foot By Accidentally Arming ISIS

One of the earliest major setbacks in the war against ISIS came last June when the U.S.-backed Iraqi army was routed by Islamic militants in the northern Iraq city of Mosul. Government forces retreated from the Islamic jihadists’ assault. They left behind a trove of costly military hardware, including U.S.-made armored Humvees, trucks, rockets, machine guns and even a helicopter. READ MORE

Cliven Bundy vs Bureau of Land Management

Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of his sons was arrested while protesting the removal of the cattle. "I have no contract with the United States government," Bundy said.  READ MORE HERE  and HERE


The biggest Governmental Travesty in American History: President Barack Obama did absolutely nothing to advance America, generally speaking, but rather, augmented a detrimental divisionism among its people and politics.
