You may have noticed a few changes at Personal Liberty Digest™ over the last few weeks. Expect to see more changes in the coming weeks and months.

The Federal Reserve has presided over the death of the dollar, which is now in its final spiral. When the Federal Reserve opened in 1914, an ounce of gold equaled $18.99. Today, it takes more than 1,500 fiat dollars to buy that same ounce. In 2008, the banking industry became a shambles thanks to the bursting of the housing bubble, which had been created by the Fed’s easy-money policies.
Monday night, House Weeper John Boehner (R-Ohio) went before Wall Street’s Economic Club to assure the Nervous Nellies that Republicans would agree to raise the debt ceiling. Moneynews.com reported that Boehner was stuck between a rock and a hard place, trying to calm Wail Street while keeping up the façade that Republicans care about cutting government spending.
The last thing my doctor told me at my most recent appointment was, “Be sure to leave off the salt.”
And most people under the care of a doctor do “leave off salt.” In fact, they starve themselves of salt mainly because they believe myths about salt.
Beware! I am not recommending you eat (take) more salt. You have to decide that for yourself. But I do believe you will eat more salt (sea salt) if you have the facts.
Do you still recommend having cash on hand in view of the coming collapse of the dollar? Will there be an interim period to use paper, or will there be an immediate collapse?
Do you recommend having copper coins on hand?
We have read about forced inoculations for H1N1 coming this fall. Is this true?
There was once a time when the media understood it had a job to do: Question everything, take nothing for granted and do whatever it takes to ferret out the truth. Sadly, that time has passed. Now, the corporate media blindly accepts its nuggets of food from its government master — never questioning and often cheerleading rather than reporting, especially if that master is a socialist like the one we have in Washington, D.C., today.
A Wayne County (Mich.) Family Court judge has ruled that a Detroit teenager stolen from her mother by armed thugs of the Detroit medical police must be turned over to the custody of her aunt this afternoon.
If you’re looking for some scattered, interesting facts about prices and the spending habits of different societies, The Price of Everything by Eduardo Porter, is the book for you. Porter has spent the past few years researching global statistics on paying for things like housing, food, athletes and votes. Mixing this all together, he provides a few entertaining nuggets about the exuberance of financial bubbles, the differing costs of getting married, why Pele never got paid enough and how folks decide what to tip a waiter.
But in his extensive compilation of research, Porter can’t seem to see the financial forest for the trees. For instance, while wading through factoids like how much a donated kidney is worth (about $15,200) or the median salary of the 2009 New York Yankees ($5.2 million), he never asks himself a really meaningful question. He never stops to wonder: What is the real significance of wealth and prices in a world where the supply of money is cynically manipulated by government bureaucrats beholden to corporate oligarchs who continually seek to concentrate power in the hands of an elite few?
I kept waiting for him to go deeper into his subject as I waded through this book’s mish-mosh of stories and anecdotes about the byzantine subject of prices. But he stays on the surface.
