Good questions, all.

#48 -- That one is next on the "Agenda".

It will affect our First Amendment. Why? Because people are freely talking amongst themselves and sharing information real time. Our Information Age is making it harder and harder for the wizard to remain in control. People are discovering the truth behind the curtain.

"They" want to be able to flip the switch on the Internet and control what information we are allowed to have and share.

"They" have just this week removed one of the finest opposers to this type of control (RIP A. Swartz). He was too smart and too outspoken. Damn that "depression" (yeah, right.)

A couple of those I don't have a clue , a handful I could answer with "better safe than sorry" , but I think that most of them can be answered with "duh" .

Truth is that I think it's obvious that time's about up . No matter what scenario you believe in it's pretty clear that there's a huge turning point right around the corner . I try to make light of it because there's not a lot I can do about it and I don't think yelling and screaming a lot is going to help very much .

If I think of something I'll let ya'll know .

To add to the questions, here's another...Why will it take the U.S. seven years to give the Gold back to Germany if the U.S. Really has what they say they do?



But the biggest news of the day comes from the official Buba announcement that, in its official capacity as a prudent central bank, it - as first of many - is looking to repatriate some 300 tons of gold from the New York Fed. That, however, is not today's news - that was Monday's news. What is news is that courtesy of the supplied calendar of events in the Buba statement, it will take the Fed some seven years to procure Germany's 300 tons of gold. This is the same Fed that, in its own words, holds some "216 million troy ounces of gold" or some 6720 tons, in its vault 80 feet below ground level. Putting the above in perspective, the amount of gold that Germany will have to wait 7 years for is shown in red. The amount of gold the Fed supposedly holds, is shown in yellow with a shade of tungsten. Why it will take the Fed 7 years to part with an amount of gold that is less than 5% of its total holdings is anyone's guess... unless of course, the bulk of the gold in the column on the right has been rehypothecated numerous times to serve as collateral for countless counterparties, and it is no longer clear just who own what to anyone.

#4 Why have billionaires such as George Soros and John Paulson been hoarding massive amounts of gold?

Why did Thorin Oakenshield hoard all that gold?

The 'do you have a gun in the house' question goes back at least 25 years; I remember being asked that at the pediatrician's office when my kids were little.

Normally I just delete this stuff, but I thought this one had some particualrily good questions we should be asking ourselves.

Your thoughts on these 50 questions:



#1 Why are sales of physical silver coins breaking all sorts of all-time records? The U.S. Mint is on pace to sell more silver eagles during the first month of 2013 than it did during the entire year of 2007.

#2 Why has Germany announced that it will be moving gold from New York and Paris to its own vaults back home? Is this a sign of a breakdown in trust among global central banks?

#3 Why is China systematically hoarding gold?

#4 Why have billionaires such as George Soros and John Paulson been hoarding massive amounts of gold?

#5 Why are billionaires buying up so much ranch land up in Montana?

#6 Why is Russia warning that we are rapidly approaching a global "currency war"?

#7 Why has Barack Obama chosen this moment to launch an all-out attack on the Second Amendment?

#8 Why does Barack Obama want doctors to ask their patients questions about firearms?

#9 Why is there an incredibly severe nationwide ammunition shortage all of a sudden?

#10 Why has a bill been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives that "would ban Internet or mail order ammunition purchases"?

#11 Why are gun control advocates such as Piers Morgan pushing for us to become more like the UK when the UK actually has a much higher violent crime rate than we do?

#12 Why was a Forbes article that made a connection between the use of psychiatric drugs and the mass shootings that we have seen in recent years almost immediately taken down from the Internet?

#13 Why does the federal government want to start putting "black boxes" in all new motor vehicles?

#14 Why are some U.S. states now using computers to predict "future crimes"?

#15 Why are "black-clad federal SWAT teams" raiding farms and ranches all over the United States?

1. The mint actually suspended production. The reason I would reason is because the Fed has revved up the printing of the American dollar. So far, it's been reported that the Fed is printing up to 40 billion a month and now may be going to 50 billion a month.

2. Venezuela did the same thing 2 years ago and the Netherlands are considering doing the same thing. The reason why we held Germany's gold was for fear that Russia would take it. That's no longer a fear, but with the US economy circling the drain and our debt clock souring, and the central banks seemingly awaiting the collapse, I wouldn't want my gold in it either.

3. China is the heir-apparent to the super power thrown. This hasn't been a secret. Also, China is the US's biggest creditor. If the US collapses and is unable to pay back, it will need that capital for themselves to be a super power.

4. Have you listened to radio for the past 20 years? They are always telling you to buy gold. Buying gold is a bet against the value of the dollar. When the value of the dollar falls, gold rises.

5. Didn't Ted Turner buy most of that state back in the 90's? Open land, quiet and low population. Great for getting away, having secret meetings and creating new plans!

6. All goes back to questions 1-3. Russia, being a former super power, still wants a place at the top of the list. The Ruble is just as much as a tool of the central bank as the US Dollar is. When The Dollar falls, who's will rise?

7. 2nd term. No fear of being voted out. Not that it's an all out attack. Clinton and Reagan has supported the same idea. Obama's executive orders are only scary to those who don't really know what an executive order really is. I think is a smoke screen so we argue about guns and not notice what's going on behind the curtain.

8. Again with the puppet Obama? Obama doesn't want anything, he's told to do whatever and does it. As far as the theater goes, Isn't it to identify Mental Illness? Mentally ill can't have guns under this plan, but it is covered by Obamacare!

9. The US Army's contract has came up with the manufactures. When ever this happens, there is always a shortage for civilians. Every Army/Army reserve bases suck up all the ammo from your local & regional distributors. Also, when ever government makes moves on the 2nd--

Amendment, people will naturally stock up, causing more demand than normal. It's also worth pointing out that Manufacturers of ammo don't produce ammo like Pepsi does soda's. There isn't that much ammo produced for general consumption. It maybe worth thinking about the fact that the 2nd amendment gives you the right to bear arms, but if we can control how to take away the bullets.......HMMMM

10. As you know, the internet is the one thing that government has been unable to police, monitor and enforce any law on. They may eventually get a website shut down, but 10 other are there to replace it by the time they do. If not, there are forums like this one that email accounts can be PM'ed and deals can be done that way. This is why it's great that SOAPA and PIPPA failed!

11. Because the point is to push the US into the same world status as England. A Democratic-Socialist state that belongs to a Union (See Amero) and a Former super power.

12. Forbes, while extremely capitalist, has also a global initiative. They just started in India recently and have a place where cheap labor is the way of life. Their job is to use capitalism like a carrot on a stick so people will work cheap and continue to line the pockets of the elites, who will will see is building China.

13. Obamacare. It's a device that can prove you was at fault of an accident. If resulting in injury, you Health insurance company can cut you, forcing you into Obamacare. Not to hard to figure it out, is it?

14. Welcome to the 21st century. The funny thing is that the program was developed to predict earthquakes lol. Its basically a statistical calculator. If you have a high crime neighborhood. It takes every time an officer files a crime in that area and just calculate how often a crime happens and gives you a time pattern. It's very simple. I'm more concerned with the small portable fingerprint scanners. Someone can lift your prints, file them without permission.

15. Food control. All food that's sold must go through the FDA & USDA. Most, if not all of these farms that were raided were selling food that wasn't inspected by either one. Our food has been controlled and has had additives for years. You can't trust things just because it has a sticker that says "Organic".

Frankly, this is the worst list of shocking things I've seen on this site. Actually I've never disagreed with one of these lists before.

the first 4 questions are all the same. Why are people hoarding physical metals?

Then there's this doozy of a coupling:

#7 Why has Barack Obama chosen this moment to launch an all-out attack on the Second Amendment?
He's not launching an all out attack on the second amendment. I'm not discussing it further. it's paranoid delusions.

#9 Why is there an incredibly severe nationwide ammunition shortage all of a sudden?
This is asked right near the questions about guns? really? It's such a stupid question. People were obviously scared about the threat of gun control and rushed to buy ammunition.

These lists are supposed to be based on real facts. This one is very poor and has lots of opinions.

Indeed. Very interesting, and disconcerting, the fact they seemed to have reversed it's applications to be used against their own.

What I want to know is, why they call something you park your car in a "driveway" and a road a car is driven on a "parkway"?
