I've ordered my gadsden flag to fly under my American Flag this summer.

Why is there not a "LOG IN" button on the "Site Home" page?

In certain circumstances, the "recently posted" link doesn't work; I think it's due to the ads that are embedded.

For all those who think they're making money with the recent gains in the stock market, I have to ask a FUNDAMENTAL question..."What are you making in the stock markets, or through employment, for that matter?"

What is the REAL VALUE of a dollar?

And who dictates what the dollar is worth (I know the answer)?

The upswing on the charts look real purdy, but at the end of the day, what does it mean?

It's all just belief, almost like a religion.

Sad. America used to be the greatest country in the world, without question.

Google HJR-192 and tell us.

This line is for rhetorical astuteness.

Whatever the USA dollar is worth, it is still worth more than most other currencies.

I think it's about 1/3rd of 1 cent.

That is my calculation.

I think its safe to say, that if all other currency's are compared to it.
Then it must have some significant importance, and isn't going away anytime soon

I'm not sure, but I was thinking about it the other day, if the penny was still coined from copper (PRE-1982 OR 1983), and you exchanged the dollar for pennies, you could actually have made money by melting those pennies down and selling the copper as a commodity!

Let's try to beat these criminals at their own game by thinking outside the box we've been put in.

THANKS FOR EDITING THE THREAD TITLE, GOOLS. I THOUGHT THAT THE WHOLE THREAD TITLE (all caps) NEEDED TO BE CAPS TO FALL INTO THAT CATEGORY.

SORRY FOR THE OFFENSE.

In 1970, $1.00 from 2008 is worth:

$0.18 using the Consumer Price Index
$0.22 using the GDP deflator using the value of consumer bundle
$0.18 using the unskilled wage
$0.11 using the nominal GDP per capita
$0.07 using the relative share of GDP


In 1980, $1.00 from 2008 is worth:

$0.38 using the Consumer Price Index
$0.44 using the GDP deflator
using the value of consumer bundle
$0.39 using the unskilled wage
$0.26 using the nominal GDP per capita
$0.20 using the relative share of GDP

In 1990, $1.00 from 2008 is worth:

$0.61 using the Consumer Price Index
$0.67 using the GDP deflator
using the value of consumer bundle
$0.58 using the unskilled wage
$0.50 using the nominal GDP per capita
$0.41 using the relative share of GDP


In 2000, $1.00 from 2008 is worth:

$0.80 using the Consumer Price Index
$0.82 using the GDP deflator
using the value of consumer bundle
$0.79 using the unskilled wage
$0.74 using the nominal GDP per capita
$0.69 using the relative share of GDP

Does not look good if you ask me.

Thanks, Plucky.

Isn't it sad? I've copied a bit from your suggestion, and here's what it said:

Note: "payment of debt" is now against Congressional and "public policy" and henceforth, "Every obligation . . . Shall be discharged."

As a result of HJR 192, and from that day forward (June 5, 1933), no one in this nation has been able to lawfully pay a debt or lawfully own anything. The only thing one can do, is tender in transfer of debts, with the debt being perpetual. The suspension of the gold standard, and prohibition against paying debts, removed the substance for our common law to operate on, and created a void as far as the law is concerned. This substance was replaced with a "PUBLIC NATIONAL CREDIT SYSTEM" where debt is "LEGAL TENDER" money.

HJR 192 was implemented immediately. The day after President Roosevelt signed the resolution, the treasury offered the public new government securities, minus the traditional "payable in gold" clause.

This is from: www.truthsetsusfree.com...

The whole
thing makes me sad in my soul.

And to have "In God We Trust" printed on the fake money makes it OK? That REALLY makes me sad.

Hey Gools, what's the code I have to use for that beautiful exorsist puke icon to appear?

Thanks in advance.

It would make sense to me. The all caps everything is shouting. Capping a word or two accentuates their importance. I can never rmember all the rules anyway.

The real value of a dollar is a dollar. The question is is the increasing costs of quality micro-brew worth the beer farts and my answer is a resounding NO.
