The good Sumerian liberal politicians that have the people's best interest at heart decided a few years back to reward the old folks by taxing their social security checks. Yet, there was no outrage, and the old folks still keep voting the same liberal politicians back in office, why is this? I’ll tell you why. When someone has bought into the big lie that there is something for nothing in life they can be flim flamed.
Right now many of the same politicians that have sold this country down the river is still running their pie in the sky something for nothing shell game successful when they know the cupboard is bare. No outside enemy is here taking our rights and country away, we are willingly voting into office smooth talking flamboyant people with the gift of gab, and expecting them and the government to take care off us, how sad. This country is broke, and we sure can't eat promises.
I’m repeating myself again, no one can understand the basics of how an economy works unless he starts with bartering. You can talk about the stock market, interest rates, compound interests, government bonds, municipal bonds, derivatives, Commodities, pork bellies, or whatever, but if you don’t understand the need for a bartering capacity foundation, you are lost in terms of long time survival.
This sugar daddy hand out welfare state has shut down the underground bartering capacity backup that have existed throughout the history of civilization. This welfare state is winner take all and leaves nothing, except starvation and back to the Stone Age. I’m no fan of Russia, but with the breakup of the former Soviet Union at least they had some bartering capacity in place. Their bartering capacity was the only thing that kept them afloat.
Sure, the US economy is the most powerful economy in the world but our welfare state economy have killed off almost all capacity to barter to survive in time of distress. It is never wise to have all of your survival eggs in just one basket. The saddest thing about this whole situation is the liberals has this nation by the throat, and will never let up until all individual responsibility and accountability is choked off.
Within their shallow minds, they care and want to do good, but in reality their eyes have never been pried open by true hardship to survive. Anyone that thinks that great character can be built without struggle has never been severely tested. Because when the chips are down and your friends walk away, how many will be able to ignore the taste of bittiness and never look back, certainly not one that thinks the world owes him a living.
There is no such thing as something for nothing. The US has had its nearly eighty year’s grace period of free spending, now its pay the piper time or mother nature is going to take it out of our hide, it may mean, even back to the stone age. Enough said, let's move on.
I see where more and more people are beginning to flee the dollar and run to the Euro for financial security. It may be a case of jumping out of hot water into the fire. Like the dollar the Euro does not have a gold backup and in my view is not nearly as strong as even a weaken dollar. What surprises and baffles me is why so many even learned economists are so ignorant of the very basics of economical survival.
What are they teaching in economic school, many do not have a clue as to the bartering foundation? Their priority is all wrong. Sure, money is extremely important, but it is not the most important thing to survive, people survived long before money was invented. Many primitive societies even to this day survive without money.
The priority follows in this order; food, shelter, warmeth, culture, bartering, and then currency (money). Money only allows a society to survive more efficiently. Even culture in the long run is more important than money. Without a culture with a strong nuclear family system and a strong moral code in place money will not matter because there will not be any unity to hold the society together.
I believe civilization would not be where it is today without the Christian religion and its moral code. The main reason I believe the Christian religion has allowed so much advancement is its emphasis on love and forgiveness. It may seem like a small thing that does not really matter, but without it, a society tends to stay primitive.
Just look around, there are countries that without outside trade and influence definitely would regress back to the primitive stage, especially culture-wise. Following bartering a currency is next in line of priority, but that means a currency that have it value in itself or a guaranteed backup.
There must be a physical accountability currency to protect a society’s culture because as human being we are controlled by our greed and self-interest. Also, a physical accountability currency would have purged out all of the liberal anti-survival threats we face today, such as men marrying men, women marring women, illegal aliens with driving licenses, and on and on.
There has never been a society that changed course even knowing it is headed toward total disaster, because greed and self-interest coupled with power concedes nothing. Right now with the financial condition this country is in the liberal and even conservative politicians will never voluntarily stop reckless spending without a physical barrier stopping them.
It is the nature of man to push the envelope or go the limit unless physical stopped, a real currency does that. The stock market, interest rates, and compound interest are all side issues; it is like playing the game monopoly in real life unless there is a gold backup. It just takes around five generations to catch up with us.
If a country does not have any fall back underground bartering capacity and a physical accountability currency, it is truly living in a fantasy world. There has never been and never will be a government that will not go broke at some point. To all of those running to the Euro, just remember that civilization was built on a physical accountability currency, not wealth based only on trust and faith.
A Lack of a gold backup and the welfare state have destroyed our small farmers and home gardeners, our underground bartering capacity backup, and our once strong nuclear family system. Now, same sex marriages and other anti-survival forces have the power to bring down the whole system.
The million-dollar question is: Can western civilization survive? Sad to say, I have my doubts. Something will come about, but it may not be freedom.
You can have all of the money in the world, but if it won’t buy you food you can’t survive, you can’t eat money. Money is not going to do you any good if everyone is using their own fuel to stay warm and is unwilling to sell you any. Money is not going to do you any good if there is no strong culture and good morals because everyone is going to be at each others throat with no peace without force.
That is why individual freedom as we have known so long is on its way out, unless our welfare state is dismantled. Only power and forced authority will keep order when individual responsibility and accountability have been destroyed throughout western civilization by the welfare states.
The only thing that has a fighting chance of saving individual freedom and western civilization is to dismantling or privatizing out of the welfare state. There is no other way, but the politicians in office will never give up one inch of their provider role power.
The welfare state politicians are the ones that have given tax break incentives to businesses to move off shore and sell cheap labor goods back into the US with no penalty. When all is said and done it is the welfare state politicians that have sold the US down the river not the corporations.
Every business's goal is to survive and make as much profit as possible, that is just doing what a business does. corporations has no authority or power to force it's will on anyone, or do anything, except with the permission and approval of the welfare state. A person always has the option to quit and find another job. All of this blame big business and the corporations is just sheer ignorance.
It is sheer demagoguery; you hear it every day on the campaign trail, just blame the big bad corporation boogie man, it's sick. The hidden hand in all of this selling off of America has been and still are the liberal politicians of both political parties putting their greed for power above the long term survival of their country. As to the global economy, there is no saving it.
The fact is, a global economy is really a fool’s game, because there can never be a completely successful global economy without there first being a global military force to enforce it. Do you think the American people would pay all of these high property taxes, income taxes, school taxes, special purpose taxes, and other taxes without the welfare state enforcing it?
Plus, there are all types of license fees, permit fees, and other mandated fees. There is no way the people would comply without force. It is the same way with a global economy, Other countries are never going to pay or play fair without force.
Today no one truly owns a home or anything else in this country with the cost of property taxes. And, you better pay on time or penalties will still take it from you. The foundation of freedom is the ability to own private property. But that can't be if you can't pay the taxes, the welfare state is on it's way to owning all of the property.
As to a currency, a currency is supposed to represent spent human energy of some form. When traced back through bartering, spent energy and sweat is supposed to be what created something of value. To just crank up the printing presses and print worthless paper money without a gold backup is the same as those announcing they have invented a perpetual motion engine. It is an illusion. It is an impossibility.
Sure, you can get away with running a phony economy like this for eighty to a hundred years but it is going to eventual catch up with you. But, during all of these years it is slowly rotting away the nation’s means to survive when hard times come; it is slowly rotting away the nation’s culture, it is slowly rotting away the nation’s moral fabric, the nation’s nuclear family system, and the nations bartering capacity in case the economy fails. It is destroying all of the necessary things that holds a society together. My God! Why can’t more people see this?
Lately I hear the term “Protect the Children” and we know what is best for the children. In my view it is like “The three blind men examining an elephant.” I can’t remember all of the details, but all three came away with a different conclusion, one thought the legs were tree trunks. From a big picture point of view it is impossible for the welfare state to truly protect the children.
Until recently, going back over five thousand years the children were always protected because of one simple fact, the parents needed them for survival. Today most parents see children as love items to be pampered and doted upon. Kids are almost never seen as future meal tickets, which they are. The welfare state has taken away the need for the male head of household and the need to raise children like ones life will depends on it.
The supreme natural law of human survival is based on a survival need, and bleeding heart do good liberals have all but destroyed any need for responsibility, accountability, or anything else. I’m totally against any abuse of any child for any reason, period. God save us.
Lose weight without trying.
Anyone familiar with my writing knows that I have a super strong belief in “positive thinking” to change behavior. To those that don’t know what positive thinking is, I will explain. It is a technique to change behavior; take a phrase or quote and repeats it over and over to yourself. It doesn’t need to be repeated aloud.
However, to be effective it must be repeated at least fifty or more times every day. The more times it is repeated the faster it will work because it is the repeating process itself that breaks through to the subconscious. To apply the technique to losing weight one first must decide on a desired goal weight.
An example: If ones desired goal weight is “150LBS,” then one must visualize 150LBS when repeating the positive thinking quote. This is a new more powerful quote that I have just developed and is testing it on myself, and decided to share it with you. Hopefully, we all will physical reach our goal weight.
The quote is: “I can keep my weight down to “X LBS.” through God which strengthens me.” The through God part can be omitted or changed to fit ones own deity. It may take as long as six months to fully kick in, but if one doesn’t quit the repeating process is guaranteed to get results. Just keep saying the quote, God will make a way out of no way. Mighty forces will come to your aid. Just keep saying the quote, God will make a way out of no way. Mighty forces will come to your aid.
