Public outrage won't happen until they take away the gubmint checks, cheeseburgers, football, and cable tv.

Then, it's ON...

Yet another great post and with an excellent source ( Rolling Stone) magazine.
Thanks for the goody, and keep up the good work!


P.S. Brighten up your Avatar, your no ones enemy. Furthermore, there are plenty of people
working for "The State" that fully agree with you, as mind boggling as that may be.

Best Regards

You have to love "capitalism" in America today. These actions have nothing to do with free markets and everything to do with a fascist corrupt political system controlled by banking and oil interests.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Corporations are people too, and they deserve... to be bailed... out by the government.. just like they would... ah I can't even finish it.

I've been saying it, get out of gold now before they rob you blind there too. Get Land, Water, Energy and if you've got all your bases covered there you should buy whatever your heart desires. Gold, or an armageddon supply of twinkies, either way.

My words are more pertinent even now as the global financial markets are in a panic. Get out of GOLD as a hedge, or a backup plan. Get out of the DOLLAR. Get out of any fiat paper/digital currency and get tangible assets that can't be as easily manipulated.

Your gold is the property of the moneychangers, and if they have to manipulate it to rob you, or outright kick in your door for it, don't think they won't.

sbctinfantry, so if what you're saying is true. Gold is a trap, they may kick in your door to get it. What makes you think land or anything else is safe. Nothing AT ALL is safe, until the bankers and their imaginary debt is ended. Nothing else matters. I hope people see the truth before it's too late.

I had somewhat of a revelation last night regarding our economy and country. You tend to hear a lot about how people despise socialism and that we shouldn't have to take from the rich who work for their money and give it to the poor who don't. You hear constant rumblings about how unfair entitlement programs are and how they perpetuate a problem. Well I got to thinking about it, and realized it's not so much 'socialism' that's the problem, it falls back onto how fiscally responsible we are as a nation. 

We need to have better priorities when it comes to the nation spending money. The federal government winds up with some 15-20% of most peoples incomes in some way, shape, or form yet it's never enough to satiate our NEEDS. We spend trillions on wars, defense, and the military industrial complex in general to what real benefit? I've said it several times in the past, there is no country or grouping of countries that seriously has a chance to invade and take over America. Not because we have a superior military, but mostly because of our rebellious citizenry and our gun ownership spread throughout the population. So we are pretty well stacked, and besides that, I would find it hard to believe that Canada and 
Mexico would stand by idly in a situation such as that, considering it probably wouldn't be beneficial to either of those countries to have 'little china' set up shop here in America. 

So massive misuse of our money seems to be the larger issue. I would gladly give up all the war spending money if that money was used for Education, Healthcare, and some agreed standard of social welfare (roof over everyone's head, heat, running water, food, etc) that ensured everyone lived a relatively decent lifestyle. 

Now what I've said up to this point is pretty much common sense and makes some good sense to me at least, but last night I had an idea that expounded on some of this.

Let's say the government gets 20% from every individual. 15% of that should be the 'spendable' money that is used to support the 'socialistic' programs that we agreed we wanted/needed. Now the other 5% should be INVESTED into some tangible, legitimate, transparent money making opportunity to pay for what the government NEEDS to operate. Things like salaries for representatives and politicians, government buildings, vehicles, etc. Pretty much anything the government needs to operate, and with any extra they should build their project funds, war funds, and invest a portion back into the citizens that gave you the money to operate, whether it be in addition to our 'social' programs or adding new things to our society to give us an even better quality of life. 

Obviously this situation would need to be extremely transparent as to not fall into black market operations. But they could even maintain some of that money gathering for all I care, as long as our money is getting spent towards the right things.

Nothing is garunteed, but you can live in a house and people must drink water and power their homes. Once you've got those things covered, if you still want gold I guess you could put your money into worse things.

I've written a thread on the topic anyway, and my investigation that is backed by scripture and not popular myth is that even Jesus himself died to the moneychangers for kicking them out of the Temple when they cornered the market for 'half-shekels'.

Even the best laid plans can fail, but lets hope that once gold evaporates and is stolen, people will band together to defend their Land, Water and Energy. For the average guy like you and me, non-hybrid non-gmo seeds are our real Gold.

I've gone into depth about the old saying "Gold is the money of kings, Silver of gentlemen, Barter of Poor, and Debt of Slaves. Don't ever forget that no matter what, you're in debt. The greatest illusion ever weaved by the moneychangers is that you are something more than a debt slave, just because your local bank account digital debit transaction reciept says your bank account has a positive value.

The Outstanding Public Debt as of 25 Aug 2011 at 02:01:40 PM GMT is:

The estimated population of the United States is 311,184,171
so each citizen's share of this debt is $47,097.17.

The National Debt has continued to increase an average of
$3.96 billion per day since September 28, 2007!
Concerned? Then tell Congress and the White House!

So even after your weekly bills, after you've pinched all those pennies to get by, you still have this debt over your head that you never think about when you go out for entertainment on the weekend.

Check out the tread in my Signature to learn more about the Moneychangers. I also advise that gold is a bubble about to burst in another thread :

Get out of Gold now! It's a Trap!

Keep in mind, the trolls are saying that I support the US Dollar over Gold. I do not. I also do not advise against gold, just advise against owning it before owning real assets. I only caution that in times of crisis, the government has outright stolen gold from it's people. I also advise that with country's demanding physical gold, it's going to be a really volatile investment. If you want security, gold does not offer it. If you want liquidity, gold does not offer it. If you want a monetary freeze of your assets, gold does not offer it. If you want a garuntee you will be able to feed yourself later, gold does not offer it. If you want to turn a profit, gold is not a garuntee, though if you had enough to manipulate the markets, it would be. That is what I am saying the moneychangers are doing.

Seeds to all the things I have mentioned in a time of real crisis. Selling food will net you gold as payment, far more at such a crucial moment than you would initially imagine. Also, it is sustainable. So you are investing in a future that secures you, turns a profit, and garuntees your stomach. Why do you think the MSM and Government are watching gold soar while preventing you from selling food?

Think about it. The flock is ripe for shearing, that's all I'm saying.

This makes me so angry!

I have been saying since 2008 that the Bankers stole all our gold (How many who have bought gold recently have GOLD certificates and not the real gold? HUMmmm) and the next taget was to steal the land right out from under our feet.

That is what the "Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010" was all about regulate farmers and levy HUGE fines to bankrupt them.

this just frosts the cake.

Who Rules America? Economic Elite Have At Least $46 Trillion In Wealth – Revealing The Economic Top 0.1%

"There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.” – Warren Buffett, Chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway

...If all this isn’t obscene enough, to further demonstrate how the global economy has now been completely rigged, Deloitte’s analysis predicated, based on current trends, that US millionaire households will see a 225% increase in wealth to $87.1 trillion by 2020. Accounting for wealth hidden in offshore accounts, they are projected to have over $100 trillion in total within the next decade....

Here is an analysis from an investment manager with mega-wealthy clients breaking down the economic top 0.5% of the population, recently published by William Domhoff, sociology professor and author of Who Rules America?:

“Unlike those in the lower half of the top 1%, those in the top half and, particularly, top 0.1%, can often borrow for almost nothing, keep profits and production overseas, hold personal assets in tax havens, ride out down markets and economies, and influence legislation in the US. They have access to the very best in accounting firms, tax and other attorneys, numerous consultants, private wealth managers, a network of other wealthy and powerful friends, lucrative business opportunities, and many other benefits.

Folks in the top 0.1% come from many backgrounds but it’s infrequent to meet one whose wealth wasn’t acquired through direct or indirect participation in the financial and banking industries…. Most of the serious economic damage the US is struggling with today was done by the top 0.1% and they benefited greatly from it….

For example, in Q1 of 2011, America’s top corporations reported 31% profit growth and a 31% reduction in taxes, the latter due to profit outsourcing to low tax rate countries…. The year 2010 was a record year for compensation on Wall Street, while corporate CEO compensation rose by over 30%.…

In 2010 a dozen major companies, including GE, Verizon, Boeing, Wells Fargo, and Fed Ex paid US tax rates between -0.7% and -9.2%. Production, employment, profits, and taxes have all been outsourced….

I could go on and on, but the bottom line is this: A highly complex and largely discrete set of laws and exemptions from laws has been put in place by those in the uppermost reaches of the US financial system. It allows them to protect and increase their wealth and significantly affect the US political and legislative processes....

If the US government went after these TRAITORS for all the illegal things they have done we could completely pay off the Federal Debt and still have money to spare.

I really hope this is sarcasm, because otherwise you're just trolling. Anyone with half a brain should know this is just another plan to screw the public while helping the banks.

The lack of public outrage is what leaves me scratching my head.

It must have something to do with a perceived remoteness; what does this have to do with the average Joe? Maybe if your average Joe understood the opportunity costs to his better life, it stands a chance of getting traction. Everyone is aware how bad it sucks and is just resigned to the status quo.

May be that is what is needed. Someone more talented than myself needs to spell it out in basic terms for people. Example: If we did not incur so much national debt, X, Y, and Z would be available to Joe. If we did not off shore every stinking job there is, Joe could look forward to X pay, Y benefits, and Z future. If the Fed stopped their criminal activity, the dollar in Joe's wallet would buy him A, B, and C. ...or something along those lines.

Oh, no, the outrage is there, it's just not as public as it should be, partly because the police state has repeatedly demonstrated its willingness to meet protesters with violence. One day soon the relief valve is going to blow, and when it does, the tables are going to be turned. Strength and safety in numbers...

Technically this is communism, not capitalism. It's literally the taking of private property by the state.

I hope you meant to say fascism and not communism, because we resemble nothing close to communist state.

This scam they have got going on is as old, as there have been any large gathering of humans into one concentrated area. And lots of people fall for it over and over again, the whole thing is like rinse and repeat for the past couple thousand years.

But yes the ultimate goal is to own and control the very thing that you stand on, because its really the only thing that can't be made, and everything comes from, ie that is your land. Everything else like houses, gold, paper energy transfers, and what not is just what the people on mass demand, or what they have been made to think is in demand.

But yes the whole thing is just illusions, and those who control the illusions control those who live in the illusions. Hence all the talking and things written on paper saying all kinds of things that they want the masses to believe in unconditionally. Making up rules in there favor that they don't have to follow, is just one of the tricks they do.

In reality the whole thing is set up on the other and without always bringing in new masses, or resources the whole thing will crumble and fall. And in a enclosed system such as earth, sooner or later you will run out all those things....But really, As above and so bellow.... Its evolution baby...the revolution. You see its all been done before, many, many times before.

This country is governed by its' financial institutions and large corporations. People are so worried about preventing further deterioration but I don't think many really understand that that time has passed. I wonder what the catalyst will be for there to be enough outrage for the people to try to take back our country.

I don't understand why their aren't people parked on the steps of every Capital in the country on a daily basis protesting this nonsense and all the other BS that goes on.

Are you parked on the steps of your Capital on a daily basis protesting this nonsense and all the other BS that goes on??

I guess not.

Peace out.
