Sunday will mark the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. And although the official version of what happened that day has more holes than a Revolutionary soldier’s sock in Valley Forge, it is now accepted as fact and without question. The reason for this goes back to what I wrote last week in Prima Facie. There is no inquiry by the American people. What their “leaders” feed them is automatically believed to be true.
Inflation-driven rising food prices, consumers with less discretionary income and alternatives to the hormone- and antibiotic-laden chickens found in grocery stores have caused a drop in the demand for store-bought chicken. Rather than let Big Chicken deal with the fact that it erred by raising production 4 percent as demand was decreasing, the United States Department of Agriculture (read the American taxpayer), is bailing out chicken producers to the tune of $40 million.
It’s an old political axiom that to win a national election a candidate has to target the independents. Each candidate is guaranteed a certain percentage of votes from his political party’s faithful, but it’s the remainder of the voting public that swings the election to one candidate or the other.
Increasingly, the independents, often inaccurately called by the media moguls and political pundits “moderates,” are feeling more and more disaffected. In recent national elections they have swung back and forth as they sought the candidate that would best fulfill their hopes and dreams. Increasingly, they are disappointed and feeling disaffected that it seems that no matter which way they vote, they continue to get what they got before. More and more, they are looking for a new way.
And they have come to realize, as the inside jacket cover of The Declaration of Independents puts it: “We are held hostage to an eighteenth-century system, dominated by two nineteenth-century political parties whose ever-more-polarized rhetoric masks a mutual interest in maintaining a stranglehold on power.”
In The Declaration of Independents, Nick Gillespie, editor of Reason.tv, and Matt Welch, editor of Reason magazine, point out a third way.
Fox News’ Chris Wallace is finally treating Representative Ron Paul with the respect he deserves. Rather than try and paint him as a kook and hitting him with “gotcha” questions, Wallace gives an honest interview and allows Paul to answer his questions.
“Most naturopathic doctors and nutritionists recommend that 10 mg of Lutein is taken daily for the treatment of macular degeneration. Yet the leading vitamins prescribed by most ophthalmologists only contain 0.2 mg of Lutein.”
I would like to know if I am doing the right thing by investing in three precious metals at the same time, or should I just concentrate on one of them?
