I agree with you PP. Insurance planning 4th edition. Discusses the impact of the United States Constitution and landmark cases so that participants may better understand how the law has influenced the American public school. Advanced Accounting by Joe B. She was the youngest of six children:
As the dollar drops in value, other currencies go up in value in relation to the dollar. Take a trip Canada. The exchange rate is now around 1 to 1. Use to be Canadian stuf was a bargain for Americans. Currencies are priced against each other. The dollar index is priced against a basket of 8 currencies to arrive at the dollar price. Since we are no longer on a Gold Standard, our Dollar is based on literally nothing. Anyway, I could go deeper in explanation but I have to get things settled here at the homestead before dark… have a good evening!
Laura has been pissing, moaning, crying, and whining for two years. I am sick of her spreading defeatism, discouragement, and despair among a population that is burdened by the difficulties they face already.
She is part of the problem, not the solution. The price of gold is determined by the London Gold fix who is the market maker setting the price for everyone else. Its not a bid and ask system like currencies. It is arbitrarily pegged. All markets, all currencies and all commodities are then reflected in the price of gold.
Why the price of gold? Fiat is a tool for them like a nail gun for a roofer. The FRN is now the world reserve currency. Until then it gives them control over the markets. Japan and China need a mechanism to recycle their dollars gained from their manipulated currency advantage. This is how America gets some of its wealth back. The currency market is the largest market in the world and the most manipulated market as the major banks make a profit on every transaction as a fee, and manipulate the bid and asked with their lightning fast computers.
It is also structured to fluctuate within certain parameters to allow spread and from spread profit. You are telling me that currencies are the tail that wags the dog because you are a currency trader. I am saying that gold is the real tail that wags the dog and is the true basis of the global economic system; much of which is hidden from the public.
When the value of the dollar drops it costs more money to buy gold in dollars. But the cost of gold is static for someone who buys gold in Swiss Francs. When the price of gold is changed by the London Gold Fix, the price of gold changes for every fiat currency except the pound. Then all currency and commodity prices adjust. I get hammered in here sometimes…. All I do is repeat what high level patriots say on talk radio, yes Durango is a real jerk, loser and bully.
He cow tows to third party losers like others I know who never produce any results. True Patriots rally around the US Constitution and encourage their friends, family, and neighbors to do likewise. True Patriots do not lament or dwell on the problems, they look for doable, practical solutions to remedy OUR situation. True Patriots encourage others and initiate action that will preserve OUR rights and roll back tyranny.
I suggest you turn off the radio hosts that are spewing NWO propaganda, which you have obviously accepted as your own, and read her blog. She is a true patriot and someone to emulate. You are correct, We are no longer on the gold standard; and the FRN, like all other fiat, is backed only by the full faith and credit of the United States.
The central bankers have said that gold is not money. Mentally move beyond the classical theories of money, markets, and the economy and analyse what actually transpires within that context. Yet Gold is, and always has been since I suppose the discovery of that little yellow metal, the standard that all things are based.
God created it, He owns it, as He does everything and everyone He created. But, be that as it may, even if the Gold rises and falls with the strength or weakness of the Dollar and other currencies , it is still the basis for the overall price of goods worldwide.
Yet, if I came to you or anybody else for that matter with a Gold or Silver coin or bullion, you would listen and probably do business with me. Yes, you would I hope and pray fairly trade for the current value of my item Godl or Silver and your item, knowing all too well that someday that Gold or Silver will be worth A LOT more, thereby making you a nice little profit. They want the gold.
They want US to use paper. There is a chap on here, Mel,who takes exception to almost everything I say, and vice versa to be fair. Thing is if Mel stumped up and said something I agreed with I would still credit him with it. It is called freedom of speech, and we are all, at this point still allowed that freedom.
Do you not believe in this? Having beliefs, or views does not make a person a bully, loser jerk or anything else…and having someone disagree with you sure as hell does not make them a moron. This of course is only my opinion, which I am entitled to. I only repeat good sensible info I read and hear that makes sense. Take it up with them.. The clue is in my name love…BRITish, your radio hosts are generally not on wavelengths i can receive, and the question was not about them, is was about your assumption that anyone who disagrees with you…or the radio hosts for that matter is a moron.
One mans trash is another mans treasure…it all comes down to point of view. If you regard your, and these radio hosts points of view as the only right view then that, in my book, is not patriotism…its dictatorship. Not I am not discounting the value of beans, bullets and band aids, far from it, but do not discount the value of a few gold coins. That gold financed the movement of the entire plantation and several of the neighbors to Brazil, where they stated over at the end of the war…..
I agree, what a lovely poem! Thank you for writing it. Various other links on her site: The patriot movements mostly fail because there is no consistency even among those web sites she posts. Young people see hypocrites among older patriots bickering among each other. Apparently you detest all talk shows since none agree totally with you. I pick several shows and yes, most fail to offer solutions. If no one agrees with you totally, they are NWO shills.. Why get Daisy involved in your quarrel?
Just forget about it and go on. I think we all got your message, just saying…. I did not say that links she has posted are the sites of Patriots. I said SHE was a Patriot. That is evidenced by her Posts..
I do believe it is un-patriotic to piss, and moan, whine, and complain like a cry-baby for two years puking out the defeatism that you have. Daisy is not giving up against impressive odds stacked against her; she is fighting the good fight, like all US who know and love the real America should do.
You wallow in despair. You accentuate the difficulties. You make the problems bigger than they are because they seem insurmountable to you, and discourage any unified dissent to the forces that are stealing OUR economy and OUR liberties.
You are not a true patriot by any stretch of the imagination; and anyone who has followed your comments over the past two years know it. Do not justify your acceptance of the PTB and your complicity in their propaganda by pointing to someone else; as if its ok for you to do it if someone else is doing it.
Why bring Daisy in on your argument? Just keep your quarrel between you and durango. I think we all know where you stand though on your thoughts. Thanks for your input…. So I re-did it not realizing that it had been posted. Not only do you sound like a reasonable person, but you obviously have artistic poetic talents. Actually, the mistakes are a bit different, modified by full bellies and hence no need to strain in making a living.
So here we are, fat and happy, looking at the ending of the empire. It was a nice ride that got us to this point. If things go as bad as they could, the ONLY thing that may be of any value are items that people can actually use. Silver coins and gold are the only currency that will probably be used at first, but eventually people will ONLY accept barter.
I sure like the idea of toilet paper as currency as it is a lot softer on your backside than cash money that will likely have just about the same value. Like someone said the other day, prep like there is no tomorrow.
Non-preppers are so clueless to the living nightmare coming on the close horizon. I know a couple people that have invested heavily in gold. They pay around whatever current value is per coin.
Probably in the neighborhood of to an ounce. I pay around 50 cents per pound for sugar and flour. I imagine the day when my 50 cent investment could net me an ounce of gold return lmao. May I suggest storing whole grains rather than flour? Flour ground grain oxidizes somewhat quickly making it less suitable for storage than whole grains. Of course, for making bread from whole grains you may want a mill, but not always needed. While grains such as rice, quinola, oats, etc.
Just have a mix with some grains. Also, jerky is good to store. Sure, people can live on sugar and other carbohydrates and some vegetables, but a pack of jerky will go a ways on a menu as well as being a nice tradable item. Yeesh, for 15 bucks you can just about buy half an ounce of silver, last time I looked. How many dimes is that? Ah-hem, or think they can use in the future.
And I think I can use silver and gold in the future. I got enough T. Plus, sponges will the thing is SHTF as bad as that. Rare is that event. Also, if there should be a tornado, fire or flood, gold or silver could be taken with you should you need to leave home quickly.
Just last weekend I huffed some bags of gardening soil to the garden area and she kissed me… not bad at all. Even in the Bible there are references to buying food. PMs will not be totally worthless. Another good thing about toilet paper is you can stock up all you want, it never goes bad. Same with paper towels.
In historic German hyperinflation, one writer wrote that the most coveted items were sugar, coffee, and bacon. Also if you simply add a bundle of TP to each grocery store trip you can really stock up. BTW someone mentioned silver bullets. Great idea, but look into it. I got the bacon covered too! Ha, imagine trying to pawn off bad T. That — could be dangerous.
Er, it could backfire on ya? I do not know about toilet paper, but many paper towels have chemicals in them to make them more absorbent which also causes them to go brittle over time.
Water in the basement will ruin some things stored there, especially paper things. Thus most all bloggers are defeated, because they like talk radio shows promote the same, so by doing this we are defeated moaners, whiners, unpatriotic.
Intel hub is very negative and I no longer read it; ditto for many on RBN by the way,therefore you see anyone pointing problems with the gov. You are really twisted. Not at all Laura, those are your words not mine. All Preppers are not cry babys. All Prepppers are not un-patriotic. Your logic is flawed too! I see resistance everywhere.
Try reading Yahoo comments. They run about 10 to 1 against the goings on of the PTB. I am not talking about what others may or may not be doing. Worse YOU parrot that defeatism and spread that propaganda every time you post; encouraging others to give up hope and activity which might just develop into serious resistance to the NWO.
If YOU really are patriotic; if YOU do not mean to promote the defeatism, discouragement, and disenfranchisement propaganda of the globalists ….. I just gave you a thumbs up after saying I never would. I really thought you were a smart ass, but now think you are just an ass. All political activities as you should know for the last 60 plus years has been fruitless.
I suggest you read the party platform of the America First! They definitely have solutions to the problems WE face. They are under funded and under exposed to the masses. What everyone should see as they read your comments, is that you continually seek an excuse to fail, rather than seeking a way to succeed; that you continually blame someone else for your own lack of initiative. Your defeatism is a losing attitude that is embedded into your perspective. You must have a great life!
I stock up on tp but I also buy no name brand diaper wipes. LOTS of them lol sheets that take less space in the cupboard than a gallon of milk and cheaper than tp.
Thank you for this information concerning diaper wipes. I knew that they would dry out in time, so I have not bought any. But now with this new intel that the wipes can be dehydrated with water to work again, I think I will start stocking up on them.
I do think TP is expensive, and I think paper towels such as Brawny with divided half sheets might be a better deal than TP. I am going to see about it. Also, if you use one-part baby lotion to one-part rubbing alcohol on a washcloth or paper towels, a person can take a bath in a WROL situation, or even when there is a temporary electrical outage or water shortage.
If you do not have hot water or heat in the winter, it is a great way to bathe without harming yourself in cold water, which can be very brutal to the elderly and children.
I recommend wool blankets as the number one cold winter heating preparation along with polypropelene long underwear, both top and bottom. This is because eventually, unless your back yard is a forest, and you do not have solar panels, you will run out of fuel to heat your home in a WROL worst-case scenario. If you have enough wool blankets supplemented with fleece blankets and Down blankets if you can afford the latter , you can survive extreme indoor cold temperatures.
Get your wool blankets now while they are available, and if you can buy extra, what a great bartering item they will make. In Proverbs, a virtuous woman seeketh wool. Seek wool today, and you will have no fear of the cold for your household. Is that an iceburg ahead? There are no iceburgs in this area, keep full speed ahead!
In early I sold my house and moved in with my new wife. To those funds I added some savings and borrowed some money from my retirement penalty and tax free. I bought at Gainesvillecoins. Gainesville is a generally regarded as a good resource for coins. Just do your diligence. I prefer to buy from local coin shops.
When I bought they were the highest rated company with third-party evaluators. They shipped immediately insured and I picked up my order at the post office within a week. I talked to my local coin shop, but they were unwilling or unable to meet the match the terms.
Also, save your newspapers. Ammo has gone up everywhere except cheaper than dirt. Not in my neck of the woods. I, a bargain hunter, have been buying TP from DG for 3 years.. Have over 6 years supply for two.
Yes, it was a hoax, but it showed that people were starting to understand how tough it is and will get. I agree, I bought butter one week at 3. If I had put that same 3. Much higher return on putting any extra towards groceries that can be consumed at a later date. Purchase as many years in advance as you can. You are just paying yourself forward. Especially when inflation is a double or triple that.
Compound that with only two rate increases at work in 5 years and you can see the picture. Even if you have a good job the inflation rate is growing quicker than any increase you will see in pay. Knowing this And keep in mind the rest of the world knows it Why are on earth is there not a mad rush from the dollar?
Have you ever read some stuff by this guy named Frédéric Bastiat? He mentions something about broken windows that might have relevance here. The fantasy will go on…until it stops. The BLS numbers are B. Real inflation is already here. Filled your gas tank up? Yeah, when they said any one living outside the D.
Same goes with the politicians. And it gripes my azz when they open up their mouth acting like they understand and can FEEL our frustration,… oh please, give me a break!!! I always thought, almost everyone inside the D.
Just N East of there was some of the slummiest areas I have seen. After getting near the counter to place my order, it dawned on me that the only caucasians in the place were me and a pimple faced skinny guy handling the soda fountain drinks.
It had a small parking lot, so most of those people must have walked there. This is a pretty good article, I think I will show some non-preppers that have their head cemented in the sand this. Might do some good, who knows. Water and water supply drinkable. Food I have good water availability so I like freeze dried. Ammo for defense if needed and hunting if game available. For most of us, prep our bug in location alternative energy sources, get at least a small solar setup that can recharge the cell phone, computer, radio for news and contact purposes.
Silver Eagles made in America. Get one per week, month, whatever you can afford. Get healthy, walk and exercise. I agree Peter, except with one thing. If it does hit the fan and we need our own sources of electricity, cell phones will be worthless. Now the computer and radios will still be worth something. Also, the solar setup can be used as a barter setup to charge peoples batteries in exchange for food, ammo, or what ever you need. Hopefully soon I can wrap my solar panels in Mylar and put them in the cellar to protect the diodes and keep my batter bank topped of with wind since we are only there on the weekends.
I bought a container of magnet wire from a motor rewinding company that went bust right after the crash. I was going to sell it as scrap but no one wanted it at that time. So ive been making small PM alternators for people wanting to make bikes like you did and small wind or water turbines. I sure made out on that deal. I can start the gasoline generator every couple weeks to keep the batteries topped off if necessary. If gasoline becomes unavailable then I will be living there full time and deploy the solar panels.
I also have wall mounted kerosine lanterns for backup and when I want a rustic atmosphere. Ultimately, I hope to score another treadmill from FreeCycle and mount that generator on my bicycle. Wind turbines can now operate and produce electricity in a 3 mph wind.
You Tube has a video of a Japanese professor who has been experimenting with a fan-like collar casing around the blades. It creates turblence and a vacuum like effect that magnifies the wind moving through the blades by at least a factor of three.
You might think about soap, toothbrushes, TP, antibiotics, medical supplies. A lot of this little shit is going to be worth a gold mine when this hits. How do you fight inflation, taxes, a fucked up government or losing your life? A strong barter system will derail a lot of this nonsense.
We live in and depend on a paperless system. Some people are going to fall into this blindly following the Messiah and his bullshit and be dead or being a slave in the end. And then there are going to be others that will fight this to the end. Get ready to stand along or closely with others of like ideas. Our Liberty and freedoms are at risk. We may have to fight and die for them once again here on our land! Been buying a 4 pack of tp everyday 1. Stacks up quite well.
People take a lot of what they have for granted. Doing the same again can allow you to reuse that same water the for same type of things again, or for watering plants. It seems to me a good way to make a water supply last longer. I was watching a documetry once about the Haitian people and watched two Women fight tooth and nail over bars of soap.
It can make the difference between life and death for children. We all know dirty kids and hands mean intestinal diesease and dehydration. I figure it will be a good barter item if needed.
Mercola says to severely limit your intake of tuna due to high mercury content. Maybe he said to avoid it altogether, I forget, too tired to look it up and post a link … Wish I woulda read that before I got a bunch of them. I could be wrong, but if radiation killed everything off volcanoes would have done so long ago as they spew out much more radiation than mankind has ever produced,… and yet, here we are.
Psft, give up sockeye salmon, are you all crazy? Yes, that makes me worry, too, about any ocean-sourced seafood. Since may, , I have been consuming bentonite clay and now Zeolite, too, since March, Keep in mind that Chris Martenson has something that he wants you to buy.
How do you tell when a salesman is lying? His lips are moving. Now where have I heard that one before. Every transaction has to have an electronic record available. Can anyone substantiate this??? How do they require credit card payment for second hand stuff at a garage sale?
Sweden is moving toward the cashless society too. Businesses get charged a fee for every credit card transaction just like in the USA , and a law passed by the Swedish Parliament prevents businesses from passing on that charge to consumers. It is probably hard to find something earthshaking to post every time.
I skimmed the free book the author mentions and there was nothing new in their either. Basic economics and purchasing information. There are always new poeple joining the ranks daily.
Lets give them all the ideas we can! You know what that can be found in? It never ceses to amaze me how blind many people are….. I am wondering if Pre Pennys will be worth saving.
I have some already Copper wise they are currently worth about 2. During a collapse, you might sell them off shore for their raw value. Especially if the paper Dollar is tanking. Here in the UK copper is stolen from buildings regularly now. War memorials have been damaged.
A silver coin can be turned into collodial silver to stop that cut from festering. Basic sanitation and simple infections kill far more in times of war and poverty than fancy diseases noone can pronounce. I recommend Dental appointments an abcess can kill and eye appointments while: A your money is still worth something.
B you still have any type of insurance at all. Every household member here, has had back to back dental appointments this month. I almost had to drag the hubby there, but I am absolutley not going to yank out a bad tooth from his whining self.
Meanwhile, the local dentist is a happy man and even gave me a cash discount. A tetanus shot is good for 10 years and still worth having so long as you have no personal contra-indications. Different drug firms use different ingredients, different locales and climates carry totally different disease risks. I read his article too. If they change the composition of the nickel to zinc or tin then old nickels could be the new silver. It couldnt hurt to stock up on rolls from the bank.
At least its coinage and not paper. Debasing the coinage is treason and should be punishable by death. Tim Geitner should by high on the list of traitors to our republic. Five Pre 82 Pennys are worth On the positive side. The coinage will appreciate in direct proportion the the paper moneys declined value. I do know people who have bouight ryedale machine and sort a few hundred dollars everyday. Many expect the gov to changew the law so they can melt them down for the copper eventually.
Hell, why not save both, nickles and pre pennies. They might come in handy. And if nothing happens, well, spend them. Still I always check the change in my pockets before I spend it. Copper pennies look different in color and silver coins have a different sound when laid up on the counter. Strange, I know, but it works for me. Like I said, when I hear that sound, my radar goes up and I go in for the kill….. Sorry for the double reply… happened at the top too I noticed.
Why have a zinc penny when you can have a coin with a metal thats worth more. Question-Would rather have a penny made of copper or zinc? There is a reason they made a penny out of copper in the constitution and not out of zinc. Long before there were coins there were people trading in gold, silver, and copper. Coins were a way of trading in a guaranteed amount of metal. They were a way of knowing what you were getting was real metal.
You may have to store quite a bit to make it worthwhile but copper is copper no matter what the source. I think pre pennies are a waste of time. Current coins are useless. I found my grandfather had been saving old pennies when he died and we cleaned out his house. I took them to Coinstar. They were simply not worth lugging around. I feel the same about nickels. If I have to walk away with nothing but the pack on my back, I would rather be digging up a silver stash along the way than pennies or nickels.
So many things to tell you, but our time is running out. May 6, we have elections. The condition is pathetic. The left parties are rising along with the fascists. People have gone to either extremes. They no longer trust the democrats, the socialists, and the conservatives.
In this specific period, communism is not our enemy; or at least not the only one. God bless you and your family Manos. Thanks for the update. Holland is a potential powder keg — far worse than Greece.
Please keep us up-dated on any news that comes out of Holland. There are significant racial tensions — mostly caused by too much immigration in the big cities of religeous fundamentalist types into a very cosmopolitan, easy going society. You put too many rats in a cage, they always turn a bit nasty due to lack of space iykim. Not the same issues as you have in the US — this is simple overcrowding.
I am not aware of anything insanely bad out there but if someone else is maybe they will share. France is the one to watch Hollande, if he gets in, will turn everything on its head…he hates Merckle.
Is it fair to say , that if nothing is done about the Muslim expansion. Do you have a party running for election that favors ditching the Eurozone membership? Perhaps if you drop the euro and go back to the drachma and maybe set up an alliance with another country that is not run by the ECB?
There are some political parties speaking of leaving the eurozone. Interestingly enough, only the communists have short and long-term goals and plans.
They are stuck in the stalin stereotypes, but this anyway is what they were telling in the first place:. Leave euro, create collective type of businesses, agriculture, and the rest. All these will be achieved through some revolution in ideas, mentallity, and customs. McLove From your name and comments I guess that you are pretty young.
They often die very young. Hey how about some jokes about cancer or Special Needs Kids, they were always good for a laugh in 6th grade, hey troll? I totally agree with what you are saying…. I sometimes feel like I spend most if my free time searching shops for bargains.
I am good at making money stretch, but if I stretch it much further it is going to snap. Things may be different there, but in the U. Being middle age also helps.
I agree with you PP. It is the general cost of living that is killing me.. Burt how r u girl. I am in the same boat prices keep goin up and up. I started preps a year ago and I am nowhere where I need to be. Still trying to get my act together and money is getting tighter and tighter, I even took a part time job hubby is full time elctrician and my part time job is just helping make ends meet not extra money. I search for bargains and seem as though I am loosing time to prep because I am hoofin it around town lookin for a bargain or wastin money buying something that is not on sale to sace time.
Only debt is house all cars older and paid for etc. Not a second goes by that I do no worry for my kids futer as I know you are worried also for them what mom is not Hang in there and take care. There are calorie figures and other helpful info, especially for the newbies.
Request to mctread embarqmail. Good as can be expected in the circumstances LOL how about you.? I am working on several ways to make things last longer.. I think it would well and truly hack people off if I popped up on here once a week posting ways to use a banana skin, or any other item for that matterLOL…and I can see why to be fair. The time taken for all my hunting trips …for all those of you are not lead deficient as we are in the UK, this means foot slogging around the shops not chasing furry critters in the woods, is getting to the point where it will soon exceed the time I spend at work…there is in my opinion something wrong with that equation.
Worth you taking a look at. Read the title page again…it does not say that. Still cheap but like I learned here a long time ago if you would not eat the food it is not a bargain.
It lists things like onion rings for dinner, admittedly there are other meals maybe I am a greedy bitch but that would not do it for me LOL.
They are also high in fats and calories, I think they are quite unhealthy but some look quite yummy. The rabbits in the neighborhood would cease to exist or learn not to get so close. Speaking of that I remember when rabbits were so frightened of humans that you could not close to within 60ft.
Oh I seen on the net where a good slingshot propelling a. I know you Brits are effectively disarmed but in a pinch that thing is lethal at 20 ft or so. I live on a housing estate in a large city. I cook from scratch, I container grow, I make do and mend, I work.
It is almost, not quite but almost, at the point where these measures are it enough to make ends meet. There are four distinct groups of people over here.
Those that have no work ethic at all and never intend to change that. Those who have a work ethic and have through no fault of there own become unemployed.
Those who work for moderate wages and scrape to get by as they get no government help whatever, and those who are rich. Groups 1,2, and 4 do okay, group three is our equivalent of the middle class that are being destroyed in the United States…we fall through the net. But…but…I was told all I needed was this college degree!
Seriously wish I had more that I could prep with, and that I had woken up when I was This is not anything new. Only differance, the U.
Auntie, we Americans are also not serfs with generations of conditioning to obey the Tsar. In the rural areas, there are not just a class of rich farmers and many sharecroppers, either. It is a lot more difficult to enslave a people that has known freedom for over years and two generations of affluence. It is frustrating to see how many people are simply not standing up to these totalitarians, but I believe there is a simmering hatred being kept barely in check by our conditioning towards civility.
As some groups seem to believe they can simply launch on the majority however they wish and where ever they wish, the majority is getting the message that they are under threat, loud and clear. No one is quite ready to light the fuse, but I believe everyone is checking their pockets for a match. Many were in WWI and thus kept their weapons. Millions were killed because of this. The Cheka would go into a village, kill most of the people, and take everything of value.
First Lenin, then Stalin, issued orders to kill huge portions of the population simply because they belonged to a certain segment. My understanding has been that some serfs rebelled, but the Tsar was stronger and could also count on setting factions of the peasantry against each other and against the land owners. The government could marshal horse-mounted troops against any region and burn them out.
Besides the generational inculcations, those years prior to the October Revolution reinforced the beliefs that no one could win against the government.
When the left managed a win, it was a brief Constitutional Monarchy, followed by the Soviet repression that was even worse that that of the Tsar. When my grandfather fled in the early s,prior to the October revolution, they were hanging ten Jews, strikers, and assorted leftists a day in St.
This should, of course, be a lesson to Occupy. I still miss her. However, it was leftist-oriented, demanding rights from the government, rather than emphasizing inalienable rights inherent in all humans by virtue of our Creator.
That concept of inherent rights endowed by God in all humans is what makes America strong. Another thing in favor of Americans today is that we have so many veterans of our volunteer citizen military embedded in the general population. This, of course, is something else the administration is in process of changing as much as they can, but, right now, the strength of that is on our side, not theirs. Our present culture of social civility is being worn thin.
I tend to believe that, while there may be a few ill-conceived attempts at reciprocal violence by the general populace, there is more likely about to be some sort of organized revolt that is not going to go the way the PTP hope.
It will be better planned, multi-front and will include political and social elements. Bluewater, Millions of Russians fought back, millions. That is how the Communists came to power in the first place, as the promised the serfs their own land to farm.
Up to there were areas which the Reds did not even control. More and more I ponder how numerous the freedom loving opposition is. I suspect that when rebellion does erupt it will come seemingly out of the blue, and the actions of some brave few will spur others into action in sort of a chain reaction. I do think that as the pain and suffering increases the number of potential rebels will swell.
I wonder if concerned people are wrong to protest, such as Occupy, which I support. I believe that a good way to get T. This seems to happen a lot in France. Of course, in America, and in most Western countries, I imagine, that many people could NOT afford to stop working for like a week-plus.
Still, by not participating in the economy instead of being gassed, bludgeoned,and arrested in a protest, that might produce better results. The economy would grind to a halt. Peaceful resistance by not actively participating in the fraud. Yet, how would we get tens of millions of people to participate in this?
This sort of General Strike provides cover for Black Bloc action. It never stays peaceful. Things escalate and people become frightened and tired of the chaos.
They beg the government to stop the Occupiers and especially, the anarchists. The government happily complies and adds another layer of draconian control to an already regulation-oppressed society.
In shorthand, the bottom rises up, the top clamps down and a new order is instituted. This new order is never one of increased liberty. I could be mistaken. Been known to happen. That seemed harsh, and, if you knew me, uncalled for. Regarding Saul Alinsky, I, not being an American, had never heard of him. Thanks for that new topic to search. I am not convinced that we will have hyper-inflation of prices as this article argues.
Look at the way new money enters circulation. Banks create checking account balances out of thin air and loan them into circulation to people, businesses and government, collecting interest on this counterfeiting operation.
The increase was created by the banking system and loaned into circulation, and this had two effects. One was that debt levels grew, and the other was that as the money was spent price levels went up the value of the money went down as supply increased. So one factor in price increases is the supply of money.
Another is how fast or slowly this money moves through the economy. If someone borrow newly created money and spends it, but the person receiving it holds on to it or slowly spends it, the effect on prices is mitigated by the slow velocity.
But the real deflationary force out there is debt. If you owe a bank money when you write them a check to pay the loan and the interest on it, that cancels you debt to the bank, but it also cancels your checking account balance and that reduces the money supply. So payment of loans and the interest thereon become a drag of economic activity. Repayment of debt fuels deflation, sending money back into the netherworld from which the money was originally created out of thin air.
If government today borrows more newly created money and spends it, this offsets some of the deflation that is being caused by businesses and people repayment debts. It simply postpones the day of reckoning, creating even larger future obligations what will drag down future economic activity. At some point, if price increases were to become large, the willingness of banks to create new money to loan out would be compromised since they do not want to themselves be repaid later with money that has significantly lost its purchasing power.
They would demand increased interest rates to compensate. And as the public would be forced to pay more and more for what they buy, they could buy less; the rate of price increases always outruns the increase in incomes. And economic contraction diminishes demand for goods and services, affecting prices. This is a complex picture. Those in power are attempting to outrun the huge deflationary force of debt by trying to force credit expansion.
If you see the federal government changing the system and prints new money, bypassing the banking system, and spends it into circulation, then it is possible to rapidly destroy its value since the drag of debt would be removed.
Until that happens I think deflationary collapse is a much larger risk. I believe that all currencies of all countries are being competitively devalued.
If the dollar goes down so too will other foreign currencies, so it is not likely that suddenly everyone will just want foreign currencies and not dollars. I think the relative value of currencies has a lot more to do with the underlying strength or weakness of respective economies.
I personally sold all my gold and silver investments last April, after having bought most of them in near the prior cyclical bottom.
My profits were large. Until then I think most gold and silver investors will be very unhappy. Therefore, all those old bills now double or at least increase the amount in circulation, making it appear the U. Has anyone else noticed this? If this is a fact, the illusion just got worse.
Or am I being obtuse? That is as much as a direct injection of money into the system without a rise in interest rates to moderate the spending as one can have.
It is no different then just sending out checks which for the entitlements is happening. Clearly the borrowing by the federal government of newly created checking account balances from the FED inflates the money supply as you point out.
This is one part of the equation. There is also the possible public run from holding cash and government debt if prices start to get out of hand. When people withdraw money from banks it deprives them of reserves which then dampens lending.
And public refusal to hold federal debt undercuts bank solvency; already most banks are insolvent, only being held up by fraudulent accounting for their investments. It will be difficult for most of us to navigate the unfolding debacle. Uncertain as to when but not if. The money the Federal Government is putting directly into the economy by overspending is increasing M1. The rate is increasing too. The money in the US exchanges hands a few times and ends up overseas.
When not if those dollars come home to roost as they will when they are no longer needed in international finance will result in hyper inflation with very low velocity. No inflation but no goods either. There is no way in the world this will result in the USD having more purchasing power in the long run any more than a perpetual motion machine is possible. Let that happen and no lending will be required to fuel hyper inflation.
People in the above circumstance will not even make it home with their money stopping first to buy every necessity and anything else as an investment. They spend it while it still has some value. Germany did not need lending to fuel their hyper inflation. They just needed massive increases in M1 and a well deserved bit of panic. I mostly agree with this. You are right about the velocity of money is what causes hyperinflation. We do not have that currently.
This way they skim free money and it really never is loaned out as credit. I cost average my silver purchases and buy dips but whether this is a good investment now remains to be seen. If we could all time the best investments we would all be rich.
Buy gold on this current dip. Its nearing a bottom. Israel will attack Iran with a First Strike, sooner rather than later.
