Devaluation Coming?

October 8, 2012 by  

Devaluation Coming?

Government statistics never hint at the cost to the American people of constant devaluation of the currency. It’s a deep, dark secret that operates above the awareness threshold. What thief would announce his devices?

Currency depreciation is a ploy governments have used for millennia. Why do evil men steal through currency depreciation? Because of its huge, ongoing income flow that goes to government over and above all taxes. Taxes have the implied legality of law and consent of the people. Currency depreciation is not allotted the parameters of legality or illegality. It is above the law and is almost never debated in the monetary realm.

Currency depreciation is seductively covert when a regime is relatively stable. But when a government becomes unstable, depreciation of the currency becomes more overt until collapse.

The modern-day currency-collapsing event was Zimbabwe. But a much bigger classic currency collapse was the German Weimar Republic collapse of 1923.

Currency depreciation, especially in its latter days, impoverishes the middle class and, indeed, most of the population. The effects of currency depreciation have become destructive long before the general public becomes aware. Then, for most people, it is only a matter of survival and a constant search for basic food and clothing.

Of course, there are always a very few people who are alert to these unannounced shenanigans of government and politicians. They are able to conserve their monetary resources by diversifying into foreign currencies, gold, silver and the necessary tangibles of survival. They become far more independent of the system, mainly by putting most of their resources out of the reach of government. Being out of reach of government can mean leaving the country. For most, it simply means hiding personal wealth.

For those who are restrained by the Christian ethic, I would only say that is your choice. Once, my sister said when filing her income taxes that she didn’t want to lie about her income sources. To that I remarked, “After all, you are lying to Satan, ‘the father of lies.’”

Collapsing confidence is a syndrome of fiat paper money. We are now in the latter stage of collapsing confidence. When paper money, i.e., the U.S. dollar, reaches a certain stage of depreciation, the economy simply can’t keep up because money can’t be created by the money creators fast enough. In other words, as fiat paper money becomes worthless, it becomes scarce. Visible bankruptcies begin to appear at every level. Counties, cities, States and the Federal government are short of money. But, of course, the Federal government keeps the money presses rolling.

Governments do many things to hide the constant depreciation of paper or fiat currencies. The U.S. government is particularly adept at currency depreciation cover-up. One of the ways is with a food stamp program for more than 47 million people. People at this level are pacified with free food, so depreciation (inflation) is not an issue with this segment of the population. Also, the food stamp programs effectively buy off revolution in the streets. Full bellies don’t riot. They watch sports on TV.

All avenues of debate are limited and controlled. There is no forum in the United States to carry on debate for a sound currency.

Normally, gold and silver escalate higher with paper money depreciation. But the U.S. government cooperates with the big banks to suppress the normal and natural price of gold and silver. The government implies that it is legal to own gold and silver but it keeps the market price suppressed to discourage ownership and competition with its paper money. The suppression will end and gold and silver will skyrocket as confidence collapses further.

The collapse of paper money is at this time the biggest event in our lives, but so few are aware.

There are many police state controls ready to be formalized. Exchange controls with huge penalties will be installed.

Governments devalue in two ways. They devalue all the time by printing money. On top of this I expect a big devaluation of 30 percent to 50 percent to come suddenly, unannounced, on a weekend.

It will be a case of today you have a “dollar.” Tomorrow you have 50 cents. So everything requires double money all at once.

Plan diversification as soon as possible!

Seniors, You Are Eating Your Seed Corn?

It used to be that “taxes and death” were sure things. Now we can confidently add that the U.S. monetary authorities will print (create) money until this system collapses. Have you bought gold and, especially, silver?

How does it feel to eat your seed corn? You have worked hard and saved. Now you are paying for your frugality. You are now giving the system your savings.

There is an undeclared war going on. It’s the government taking your savings by suppressing interest rates and currency devaluation (printing money).

Do you feel good about this? Has your Representative or Senator warned you about this? Do you still trust him?

There is still time for you to protect your savings, or what’s left. But believe me, there is not much time.

I have recommended for years that you buy gold coins and silver coins, especially pre-1965 90 percent silver U.S. coins. Buy in bags of $1,000 face amount or, if you can’t do that, buy half bags or $500 face amount.

Please don’t quibble over price, causing critical delay. A few pennies here and there won’t matter soon. This is first and urgent priority!

I don’t want you to get sick at your stomach in the coming days. I beg you! Shop for a coin dealer. They are everywhere.

Then if you have any money left, buy and store food. Inflated U.S. dollars will bring very high food prices and famine in the land.

Buy a small farm in the country. Growing your food will be important.

      If you go with Gold or Sliver make sure no one knows or the Gov. will seize it like the guy who found a stack of 1800s
      sliver dollars his grandpa had claiming FDR called it all in.

      • Deerinwater

        What amazes me is that the people that sell gold and silver want to be paid in greenbacks ~ do you find that somewhat odd?

        Anyone wish to address that ?

      • DaveH

        Due to legal tender laws, Deer, they don’t have much choice if they want to make most purchases of other goods.

      • dan

        they get 10% when you buy and 10% when you sell and 10% when the next guy buys…..
        and they buy their food and pay taxes and rent in greenbacks same as everyone until it all falls down….all while holding a commodity with no risk. it would be a good business to be in.

          Actually the government cannot tax certain gold coins like Austrian Philharmonics when they are sold. They can tax gold bars and some of the other gold coins but there are some immune from any federal, state or local taxation.

          Check it out….

      • Deerinwater

        So you lose 20% in the buying and selling of gold? plus anything else? So gold has to appreciated 21% to gain a 1%????

      • Vicki

        Deerinwater says:
        “So you lose 20% in the buying and selling of gold? plus anything else? So gold has to appreciated 21% to gain a 1%????”

        This is because you are thinking of gold like you might stocks. Those who are buying gold are not expecting to have a 21% gain. They are expecting to have real hard honest money when paper becomes worthless (well worthless as in worth less. A whole lot less. )

        Though as an investment it has done quite well over the last few years. Up a lot more than 20%. Oh and you forgot to include taxes on the amount over 20%. Even though it is real money it is taxed as though it is not.

      Gold and silver cannot buy anything no matter how valuable they become as there will be no farmers who can plant, fertilize, drop pesticides as the fuel will be too high. There will be no food in the stores, no clothes, no gasoline and Obama will have followed his reverend’s command, God-XXXX America. The chickens have come home to roost.

      What it all boils down to is this: the money creators have implemented a rigged system. So, it’s like a game of chess. If your rival keeps cheating and making up the rules to benefit himself, and you never win because the rules aren’t fair, you STOP playing the game. Because the system is not fair, you have to be your own central banker by buying gold and silver. You really aren’t making any money at it, but you are preserving your wealth. When I was a little girl in the 1960′s my parents could buy a gallon of gas for a silver quarter. Today you can buy almost 2 gallons of gas for that same silver quarter. So, if you calculate goods and services with silver, the only logical reason is that there is theft by inflation.

        10/8/12, Precisely the way to bring down America is to devalue it’s currency, similar to Weimar republic (1923). BO now wants a UN treaty for a world tax, over & above those of 2013. We indeed have the enemy within.

      • deerinwater

        “BO now wants a UN treaty for a world tax, over & above those of 2013. We indeed have the enemy within.”

        This is all I can find on your claim of a “world tax.” I’m not so sure that it’s Obama, while I understand this is a kick Obama site. “Some Democrats” does not mean it’s Obama.

        “TAMPA, Fla. — National Republican party officials on Wednesday put their party officially on record opposing United Nations‘ attempts, “some backed by Democrats” in Congress, to assess a special tax on Americans and give the money to Third World nations.
        In a resolution, the Republican National Committee made clear its objection to “three global taxes and a global monetary governance mechanism to raise $400 billion a year to aid developing countries.”

        I suspect this is some form of carbon credit / cap & trade shell game. ?????

        We do have a deteriorating global weather condition to address and there are no simple answers.

        Governments rules by offering incentives, ~ incentive to “do” or “not do” ~to disagree with me about this nature of government would not be wise.

        Incentives can take many forms, offered or deny freedoms and liberties, taxes and penalties, subsidies and awards, ( the carrot or the stick approach)

        All and all a big price to pay by today’s generation for a promise of better weather that cannot be guaranteed for future generations must less today’s generation.

        It took 150 years to phase out the horse and draft animals to do our heavy lifting .

        Today we are going through yet another transition in the way we control electric motors with converting AC back to DC voltage and inversion drive. This upgrade replaces the old electric motor our father and grandfathers knew. ~ This upgrade on a global scale will take another 50 years to complete. This upgrade afforded much greater control and less energy consumption.

        It’s my personal belief that in the next 75 years a new generation of fuels will be discovered out of necessity. Something much lighter, smaller and much more powerful then crude oil byproducts or coal burning.

        As a democrat, ~ I would resist any notions of cap and trade, carbon credits or a world tax and contend with the bad weather with an umbrella ~ unless the current data drastically changes.

        If you will recall, our ships went from sails to steam, then to diesel. These are but baby steps in the progress of man.

        The next step?

        Electricity Shifts The Currents of Ship Propulsion
        December 2002
        By Sharon Berry
        Engineers work to unlock power shipwide.

        Over the years, ship propulsion has evolved from sail to steam to diesel and gas turbine engines. The U.S. Navy now is transitioning to all-electric ships, which will increase available power throughout a vessel. The benefits will be enhanced ship survivability, improved combat capability, reduced crew size—sending fewer sailors into harm’s way—and lowered ship life-cycle costs.

        Because today’s warship propulsion systems are separate from their auxiliary systems, weapons and sensors, 90 percent of more than 80 megawatts of power is locked into the propulsion system and is not available for high-energy weapons and sensors. All-electric ships will unlock this power by applying an integrated power system (IPS) that provides electric power to the entire ship.

        More than just electric drive, the IPS enables a ship’s electrical loads, such as pumps and lighting, to be powered from the same electrical source as the propulsion system. This eliminates the need for separate power generation capabilities and uses available power more efficiently through reconfiguration. When a ship is hit in battle, power distribution can be reconfigured to support surviving sections. IPS also enables the number of prime movers, for example gas turbines, to be reduced—allowing greater flexibility for their placement—and frees up space for more fuel or weapon systems. It also reduces maintenance and manpower demands with a savings of approximately 20 percent in manpower.

        In an address to the U.S. House of Representatives Armed Services Committee earlier this year, Rear Adm. Jay M. Cohen, USN, chief of naval research, Office of Naval Research, Arlington, Virginia, emphasized that the electric warship is an essential future naval capability and is key to naval transformation. The industrial base already is evolving to support electricity-powered technologies employed on commercial cruise lines, and the service must adapt to this trend. “Make no mistake.” Adm. Cohen said, “There is risk in going where no one has gone before. There is zero certainty that every research investment will pay the dividends we desire. What is certain: If we do not invest in promising research today, we guarantee that options and opportunities will be severely curtailed in future years.”

    Like I keep saying – I can’t eat gold. Hey, if you don’t want any of your $20′s, why not just give them away? Ah. i see! That paper isn’t worthless!

    You people were saying the same thing back in 1992. We were supposed to have a “hyperinflationary time bomb” go off, but instead we had almost a decade of real growth. Thanks to Mr. Bill. I remember people saying ” I would like to buy a house, but if Bush gets elected, I may not be able to afford one. But if a Democrat get’s elected, I’ll probably keep working.” Well, that’s exactly what happened.

    We can’t cut taxes anymore. That just DOESN’T WORK! What COULD happen is that people start investing in America instead of China. I know the profits aren’t double digit, but you would be making America what it was supposed to be. Why advocate that people leave America? I think that only a traitor would think something like that. If you do decide to leave America, I wouldn’t count on any US Navy SEAL’s coming to rescue you.

    This election is not about the middle east, it’s about the middle class.

      KG, you can stay in denial if you want but that would make you a fool! The dollar has already lost approx. 20% of its value already this year. Have you been to the grocery store lately? Have you bought gas? Have you paid a utility bill? If you have, you haven’t been paying attention! This isn’t a case of a shortage of ALL resources at once. This is inflation! We are already seeing it! You say that we’ve been warned before and it hasn’t happened. I say it has and is still happening! It’s the LEVEL of inflation that is about to exceed your imagination. Never before has our government had such an astounding level of debt. Never before has our government gone on a spree such as this, creating more money out of thin air. I say, if you have $20, you’d better go get your $16 worth of groceries while you can. Soon, you will only be able to get $10 worth of groceries and then it will wither down to nothing. What YOU think, will make no difference. It is and will continue to happen. There is NO way that it cannot happen.

      Why should KG protect his money? He thinks he’ll just be able to steal it from other people who did when the SHTF.
      KG says — “Like I keep saying – I can’t eat gold. Hey, if you don’t want any of your $20′s, why not just give them away? Ah. i see! That paper isn’t worthless!”.
      Non-sequitur, KG. Paper money will have ever-diminishing value until it finally becomes worthless. And right now for most purchases, thanks to Progressive Legal Tender Laws, we have no choice when we want to buy most things. But be my guest. Please don’t protect your cash savings.
      According to the BLS inflation calculator, if a person put $1000 in savings in 1992, just 20 years later if would take $1640 to buy the same amount of goods. And that’s with the biased CPI as calculated by Government so as to lessen their COLA adjustments. The real price inflation rate is much higher.
      KG says — “We can’t cut taxes anymore. That just DOESN’T WORK!”.
      KG is right, sorta. It is useless to cut taxes unless the Government also cuts an equivalent amount of Spending. But fat chance of that, since we can’t even get them to quit spending money that they don’t have, and which payback burden will land on the shoulders of our children and grandchildren who didn’t even get to vote in the matter. But why should KG worry as long as he gets what HE wants? Typical selfish Liberal Progressive.

    KG, cutting taxes is the only answer…either the government starves or we do…if capitol gains were reduced to next to nothing, foreign money would flood into the country…if government and all their anti-business regulations were rolled back, the economy would come back..

    • Nancy in Nebraska

      Roger, as much as I’m for cutting taxes it is too late in the game for that to work. People who have money to invest, didn’t get it by being stupid. They understand the way money works so they see the inevitability of the dollar’s collapse. Our government and the fed can see the writing on the wall. They’re in an all out rush to bail out the bankers(their cronies), print as much as they can as fast as they can before it’s too late. These “bailouts” are not fashioned to grow the economy. They’re designed to rob the American people before everything crashes. “You help us prop up the house of cards for a little while longer and we’ll richly reward you.”. No one is going to invest in America. They’re all scrambling to buy gold and anything that won’t be affected by dollars. Billionaires are quietly reducing their holdings in the stock market. Last month, George Soros bought a hundred million dollars worth of gold. Things are happening and you won’t hear about them on the news. America just isn’t a good bet right now. Everything the government is doing is designed to collapse the dollar. It’s coming. Buy as much food as you can, NOW! Make sure you have essentials. If you still have anything left, buy gold and silver like all the people with money are doing. Things have gone too far to be able to turn them around.

          The Inflation that will cause Hyper Inflation in the USA coming from China , Asia labor slowing down manufacturing and their currency rising faster now than any time in the past 19 years will cause supply shortages and Corporate and Wall Street devaluations to the point of Free Market sell off . Guns and Canned foods are essential and get out of the Metro areas if possible .

          This will happen regardless of who gets elected because we have become 99 % Dependent on Foreign Parts supplies and these suppliers are not buying treasuries at all now and are not taking dollars at a rate that drives their import quotas to the USA and Europe like before the Financial crash that was Propped up on Private capital credit thats now gone and Governments are running themselves on Debt .

    Great article and advice, Bob. Too bad so many people are afraid to take it, or so brainwashed by the G’ment to see the forest in front of them.

    • Steve E

      Actually it is good that many people won’t take the advice to buy gold, because if they did, the price of gold would already skyrocket. I can use this chance we have now to still buy it cheaper than when finally everyone finds out that the fiat money system has collapsed. Buy gold and silver now before everyone come to their senses.

      • Nancy in Nebraska

        The government is using the bankers to keep the price of gold down. They do this through derivatives. This allows the dollar to APPEAR to have more value. In addition it makes the banks APPEAR to be solvent. They then reward the bankers for their efforts. Now is a good time to buy gold, before the whole house of cards collapses.

      • DaveH

        One good explanation I ran across is that the banks are trying to deter people from buying hard assets because it makes it harder for them to steal our money the hidden way (inflation).

  • Dagger

    What the hell good is buying gold, silver and foreign currencies if you are dying from hunger and thirst. All the precious metals and other investments will be worthless when this crooked system goes belly-up.

    • Schlumbio T

      Its going to get nasty very soon. Christians must trust God to show us how to best prepare. (to those who don’t believe in Christ I say “good luck”) I believe that means a good supply of food for our families (and friends who now doubt our sanity in stockpiling food) as well as a good supply of guns & ammunition to protect said stockpiles, and only then also a supply of gold and silver for buying other supplies we will need.

      We may have to “give up” a large portion of our food supplies in ONE DAY to neighbors and friends and family members not living with us, but close by for when the guvmint comes calling for those items so guvmint can survive.

      That’s when I say give them precious metals – lead first and lots of it, after all, they have ordered a BILLION rounds to do us in…

        Oh gee, Flashy! Let’s see… Did JESUS tell his followers to kill anyone who doesn’t believe in him? Nope! Did JESUS tell his followers that if their wives don’t behave, beat them? Nope! Did JESUS tell his followers if their daughters refused to marry who you tell them to, kill them? Nope! Did JEUS tell his followers to lock girls in a burning school because they didn’t have their head scarves on? Nope! Did JESUS tell his followers to rape their enemies? Nope! Did JESUS tell his followers to commit jihad? Nope! Did JESUS tell his followers if a woman was raped she was guilty of adultery and should be killed? Nope! Did JESUS tell his followers that anyone who disparaged him should be killed? Nope! I could go on and on and on! But you get the idea! There are innumerable things that make JESUS different from mohammed OR allah!!! To even try and compare them is absurd!!! You ARE the MOST IGNORANT person I have EVER conversed with!!! IGNORANT OR EVIL!!!

    The facts are that the middle class will disappear into the poor domain and will need to become subsistence dwellers, since the elite will still have all the wealth. Heaven knows what they are to do with that wealth,where will they get their yachts, palatial residences and gourmet meals from? Seems the world is headed for some trying times. Back to the woods and fighting for survival is all that remains. Finance has got nothing to do with what’s coming now! Somehow there are those who will make it since they know how to survive. The elites?? well they will have only their money and that won’t be enough since they never learnt how to live on the street and are in for some rude awakening. This should be fun. Hope to see you all there. I lived on the streets for two years and survived without once ever resorting to crime of any sort. It can be done, just have faith and watch your back.

  • Flashy

    “It’s a deep, dark secret that operates above the awareness threshold.”

    Shhh…be afraid, be very afraid. Fear feeds the mind, fear leads the weak and feeble minded, fear creates and feeds upon fear, and that is the main food source for the extremist right and American Taliban….for they promise to the ignorant and hate needers the unpromisable answers, the True Path. it’s ‘their’ fault. Do not pay attention to those who are brave, who are unafraid to face the future. Who see as what it should be, and work to attain that. Who tackle the complexities of the world and treat with disdain fear and all those who seek the comforts of cowardice…

    Work not to help solve problems, rather..act to increase the difficulty in overcoming. Be afraid, be very afraid. And above all…so not think. Inj any event, do not think. For sanity, rationality, common sense will expose fear for what it is…

        Nancy..me/ Income is up, debt is down. I have a stable life, a dream job in the private sector, and the worries of the ’08 crash are eased. Life is looking good and portends even better unless Romney gets in and the GOP hammers the Middle Class again with more body blows.

        This nation? Well…in October 2008 we were losing almost half a million jobs a month heading for a million job losses a month in the first months of 2012, a complete collapse of the financial markets and credit was cut off for everyone, we were facing the abyss of a Depression, social strife was rampant and this nation was tearing itself apart…

        We now have the beginnings of a solid base to grow on, a federal budget which has increases the lowest since Eisenhower, a President poised to invest in wise solid growth choices of infrastructure, education, and R&D, extremists are in the last throes of a an act and diminishing in voice and influence, the War against the Middle Class is now being fought back against the evil which attacked it beginning in the early 80′s, and we’re in the process of halting the most massive redistribution of wealth in the history of Man as the wealthy are now being forced to pay their way.

        There are problems ahead, issues to overcome, and a delicate way to weave…but nothing we can’t do.

        Our enemy? fear, hate, ignorance. Yes, exactly those elements the Tea party relies upon for its power are the elements which are this nation’s most powerful enemy…….

        Dave H contradicted himself. Flashy says he has a private job and Dave clamours that he is living on the “taxpayers back”. If that is true about Flashy then it must be true about Dave and probably everyone else.

      • Elda

        Flashy, it is important you don’t spend a moment’s thought or a dime on anything as silly as an economic crash. You are right, it is all just made up to scare people. I hope you do not live near me, I have enough idiots living near me to support when the crash comes, and you will be one of the first to take to the streets with your hand out on day 3.

      • eddie47d

        The nation is slightly better today than 4 years ago although there are enough negatives coming at us to cancel out those improvements. Conservatives won’t tell you the truth anymore than the Liberals. The Conservatives won’t say anything positive because it will make them look bad. The Liberals won’t say anything negative for that will make them look bad. Overall the housing market is improving and prices are either stablizing or going up. In 2005 my house was on the market and we couldn’t sell it until 2007. Lost $100,000 dollars and that same house in 2012 is back up by $95,000. The house we now live in is only $5,000 less than what we paid for it. (After dropping $20,000) That is an improvement over 4 years ago but the Conservative refuse to admit it. They can only be negative to win. Some can say gas prices are up again and that would be true but those increases are due to the world market and wild Speculators driving them up.

      • Flashy

        Elda…we went through the economic “reset’ when the house of cards built on the Conservative economy of the 00′s came home almost exactly four years ago. we averted economic disaster by mere hours…not days. The Crash was, if you examine it, closely aligned with neo-Conservative foreign policy and libertarian economic principles of lax regulation and oversight allowing the oligarchy of Big Business to pound the hel* out of small business and drain the resources of the Middle Class.

        Pres. Obama came to office with a series of options…all bad options, but options nonetheless. He chose, in my opinion at the time and as history has proven, the correct one.

        The Federal budget is flatlined. Yes…look it up. Almost flat. The deficit which is present is what Obama has inherited. Almost completely in place and in size. Pres. Obama’s policies did not add any significant size to the deficit, except if one counts a flat budget which could not be cut without severely affecting the economy to the negative.

        We’re in fair to middlin’ shape right now. Europe (which chose the way the GOP and TPers have been yelling for) has drug us down, and China is having the beginnings of its long term problem which lie ahead for that country.

        If we stay the course and adhere to the Obama Plan, we should be coming into a long term period of economic well being in about three or four years. if we have the “Romney plan”….yeah, I’d start to think about the future and start digging the shelter in the back yard, ’cause there is not much good in any path the GOP and TPers have promised to take us.

        The two major failings of this administration? I’d say not breaking up the Big Banks and falling short of having a pubic option to health care. A close third would be not moving to enforce anti monopoly laws as against the oligarchical Big Business sector.

        All in all, I’ll sleep very soundly when Obama wins another four years of guiding us through the reefs and shoals ahead

      • Nancy in Nebraska

        Wow, Flashy!!! Let me see if I can address your points. I doubt that it will make any difference though as you are living in a fantasy! You say we’re better off because we’re not losing as many jobs. The government has CHANGED the way they calculate the job losses and unemployment. They CAN’T let the people know how bad things really are so they just stopped counting MILLIONS of people. So….NO the jobs haven’t come back! You said we WERE facing a collapse of the financial markets. Yes and we are STILL facing the collapse of the financial markets! They have managed to prop things up and postpone the collapse by making deals with the bankers to keep buying their derivatives. Then they thank the bankers by bailing them out for their losses. You say we were on the abyss of depression. We still are. Many economists believe that we have already slipped into depression but that the government just hasnt told us yet. You say that social strife was rampant. I say that none of that started until AFTER obumass got in. Where was the social strife? WHAT social strife? You say the federal budget has the lowest increases since Eisenhower was in office. SERIOUSLY?!? There is NO federal budget! There hasn’t been a budget since obumass has been in office! Do you REALLY think you can just LIE and make stuff up?!? More money has been spent under this administration than any other, EVER!!! NOW we have QE3, under which they’re printing up money at a pace never seen before! Forty BILLION a month for EVER??? Don’t even TRY to compare that to Eisenhower! You say, the war in the middle east has been brought back against the evil which attacked it. WE are the evil which attacked it!!! Haven’t you been paying attention?!? The wars are about oil and control! Sadaam Hussein started selling his oil for gold. He didn’t want to use the petro dollar. That couldn’t be allowed because if others followed suit, the dollar would collapse. He had to be made an example of! They had to make war in Afghanistan to be able to run their pipeline through it! The current wars which they call “the Arab spring” are to upset the balance of power in preparation for war with Iran. Iran was selling their oil for gold and that can’t be allowed for the same reason it wasn’t allowed in Iraq! You say we are in the process of halting the most massive redistribution of wealth in the history of man. I’ve got news for you, the most massive redistribution of wealth is going on RIGHT NOW, RIGHT UNDER YOUR NOSE!!! It’s called QE3!!! They are printing the money as fast as they can and giving it ALL to the bankers!!!! Are you THAT naive?!? The wealthy are NOT being made to pay more! That’s just TALK to distract and polarize the people! I don’t believe the taxes will EVER be raised on the wealthy! If they ever do, they will put in some secret deduction for them! The wealth is being redistributed right now in ways you can’t even imagine!!! WAKE UP!!!

      • Nancy in Nebraska

        eddie47d, we had our house built 3 years ago, well after the housing crash! It’s value has since, dropped about $20,000. And Nebraska is actually doing better than most of the country!

        Nancy Nancy Nancy…
        You say we’re better off because we’re not losing as many jobs. [Yep. You understand]

        The government has CHANGED the way they calculate the job losses and unemployment. [Ummm…..to the best of my knowledge, they use the ame data they’ve always used. But the data has always been skewed, so the trends and private numbers are the best indicators. Try using the private stats being put out. A well recognized one is ADP. Private employment is a positive now..and has been for months. PUBLIC workers have dropped.]

        They CAN’T let the people know how bad things really are so they just stopped counting MILLIONS of people. So….NO the jobs haven’t come back! [ I’m not talking about the number without jobs…JOBS created! Heck, with what bush and Cheney did to us, it will be another three to four years just to make a healthy dent in those numbers. Nancy…we were screwed, blued and tatoo’d by the Bush/Cheney/extremist right cabal. You just don’t get over that extent of being whipped with a quick overnight cure.]

        You said we WERE facing a collapse of the financial markets. Yes and we are STILL facing the collapse of the financial markets! They have managed to prop things up and postpone the collapse by making deals with the bankers to keep buying their derivatives. Then they thank the bankers by bailing them out for their losses. [ What the heck are you talking about? Do you have any idea how the financials work????? The weakness is the Big Five control 52% of the credit market. With the exception of B of A, they’re fairly stable, especially now that the disclosure requirements are mandated and the stress tests in place. The major difference between the collapse of the financials in 2008 and if such occurred today is that today there are now mechanisms in place to let them collapse, and the system remain in place and able to operate. HAD WE THESE same plans and mechanisms in 2008…the bailouts of Chrysler and GM would not have been necessary. We had to bail them out because there was no credit in the private sector ! We would not had needed the TARP program. YOU of anyone should be all in support of not having to bail out the banks and to let them go under if that’s how they exposed their assets. THAt is capitalism! Or…dare I say it..you’re a secret socialist in disguise? ]

        You say we were on the abyss of depression. We still are. Many economists believe that we have already slipped into depression but that the government just hasnt told us yet. [Bullpucky. Flat out, that’s all the comment this remark deserves. Fear Nancy…fear. You’re being led and manipulated by Fear]

        You say that social strife was rampant. I say that none of that started until AFTER obumass got in. Where was the social strife? WHAT social strife? [Then you were leading a very sheltered life.]

        You say the federal budget has the lowest increases since Eisenhower was in office. SERIOUSLY?!? [Yep, seriously]

        There is NO federal budget! There hasn’t been a budget since obumass has been in office! [OK Nancy. Let me ask you. Do you ever think? I just applied for matching funds for stream bank erosion control. I’m putting up 50%, the USDA is putting up the other half. Funds to be available March 1. The Columbia River Crossing project (new bridge over the Columbia) has matching fed funds of over $235 mil coming due the next two years. There are several road and freeway upgrades coming due, a ton of research projects at the Universities..and on and on. Now how do you suppose these are being planned? Out of thin air???? Yes m’dear, there is a budget. There is not one overall budget which Congress can’t get to get its act together. The last time that we had a full-on, real-life federal budget that was signed into law, it was 1997. Bill Clinton was president, and Newt Gingrich was speaker of the House (and only on his second wife). Jeesh …. THINK once in awhile will ya ! It’ll do you wonders …]

        Do you REALLY think you can just LIE and make stuff up?!? More money has been spent under this administration than any other, EVER!!! [ Take away the Bush fiasco (up through 2009 was his ‘budget”] and you can see the fallacy of your point. Bush…aka neo-Conservative right extremists … blessed us with this deficit spending. Check out the actual INCREASE under this President. The smallest in % basis since Ike. ]

        NOW we have QE3, under which they’re printing up money at a pace never seen before! Forty BILLION a month for EVER??? [Nope. Not forever. Until it’s not required to smash open the credit markets. Credit is slow, QE3 is targeted to open it up more than what it is. Early next Spring probably is when QE3 will ‘offocially’ end. And will have far less than $40 bil a month spent. Now here’s a nice question for you. The Fed is buying fed debt. So the Fed will be paying itself when the debt is due. Go sit and ponder the math on that one … ]

        Don’t even TRY to compare that to Eisenhower! You say, the war in the middle east has been brought back against the evil which attacked it. WE are the evil which attacked it!!! [No…I wrote the Middle CLASS]

        Haven’t you been paying attention?!? The wars are about oil and control! Sadaam Hussein started selling his oil for gold. He didn’t want to use the petro dollar. That couldn’t be allowed because if others followed suit, the dollar would collapse. He had to be made an example of! They had to make war in Afghanistan to be able to run their pipeline through it! The current wars which they call “the Arab spring” are to upset the balance of power in preparation for war with Iran. Iran was selling their oil for gold and that can’t be allowed for the same reason it wasn’t allowed in Iraq! [Haven’t touched on the ME in this post.]

        You say we are in the process of halting the most massive redistribution of wealth in the history of man. I’ve got news for you, the most massive redistribution of wealth is going on RIGHT NOW, RIGHT UNDER YOUR NOSE!!! It’s called QE3!!!

The wealth is being redistributed right now in ways you can’t even imagine!!! WAKE UP!!! [Then you agree that the wealthy have been the beneficiaries of massive wealth redistribution. When do you suppose this began? Which is the point I was making. This President is attacking that…and the extremist Right and the neo_Cons are sying it’s he that is beginning it. When in fact he’s STOPPING it ! He is being attacked for wealth redistribution by the very ones who have been receiving all the cash I.E. the wealthy !!!!!!!! BTW…I suggest you read up on what QE3 is and what it does. Bloomberg has several good overall articles on it]

        Our government, our representatives have joined forces with the Federal Reserve Banks, and the bank owners. These international global elites will do exactly as the article states…including the QE III.

        Our politicians are willing to make their constitutients nothing less than beggars in the streets. It is all about “saving themselves” from what they have been told IS INEVITABLE! We have already had a “government take-over.” All that is left to do is to crush any rebellion with famine. Our government has been taken-over by the wealthy elites from around the world and THEIR ilk. Heard this morning that 43% of the people that go to the omaumau website are FOREIGNERS!
        Omaumau is being financed with foreign money to win this election as was the one in 2008!
        It is illegal for any candidate to take foreign donations. The reasons are obvious!

        America has been a gem eyed with envy by the wealthy of the world. They have long wished to take for themselves. Our resilience has only prolonged their desire, but now they are playing hardball…with omaumau as executioner.

      You write: “Shhh…be afraid, be very afraid.” I am not preaching fear. On the contrary, there is nothing to fear for the properly prepared. This is just sounding the warning, using history as a guide. Do you not remember George Santayana?

      You prove yourself daily to be a big government shill. I know you are not as ignorant as you appear.

        Mr. Livingston. Thank you for the observations and reply. A few questions and some commentary if I may. I apologize for this being incomplete and a rough read. I’m kinda rushed today, as I have been the past month as we enter the last quarter.

        If money ” is fast becoming worthless”, there could be many causes. One would be lost faith in the monetary unit. Would that be correct in your line of thought?

        Loss of faith. What causes a People to lose faith in the underpinnings of the economy? Dispair, lost confidence, fear. Are we today a weaker, lesser off nation than 10 years ago? Has the Empire fallen so quickly and rapidly as to not have hope for a future? No. What has occurred is we faced a huge potential of disaster, faced it and shoved it off..yet the naysayers and ‘doom and gloom’ crowd continue to yell the “sky is falling”.

        We are far better today than we were four years ago, if simply because we are prioritizing our nation’s goals. We are beginning to see a rebuilding of our infrastructure, and we are switching from outmoded ancient areas of industry into newer, more modern ones. In a way, we are fortunate we had the “reset” of 2008, for we are now able to start anew.

        Yet, those who are easily cowed, easily led by playing upon their propensities of cowardice and unwillingness to brave new worlds … they are the very same who are attempting to ensure we fall. They are the ones refusing to accept we have a bright future and can, with hard work and redirected energies, emerge stronger and better than ever. They are the ones saying we should have no confidence..for it is too hard. They are the ones who, when 9/11 hit, accepted the protections offered by the Conservatives because they feared for their safety..instead of accepting liberty has its price, and picking standing in the battle lines is one of those costs.

        You cite Greece. Yes, we are in danger of going down that path. The GOP and Romney propose that path. What occurred in Greece? The wealthy made off like bandits concentrating the wealth in the hands of a shrinking minority, privatizing profit and socializing risk. Deficits were rung up…not to pay for infrastructure and sound investment, but to pay for the welfare for the rich programs as well as pay for civil content. Now, when the bills became due…the “austerity’ programs hit the Middle and Lower incomes, while the wealthy retain their privileged stations and recipients of the wealth. In the so-called ‘austerity’ programs…the tax rates for the wealthy have not gone up, they have not been asked to pay for the welfare system put in place for their benefits, they are not being called on for helping. They took the wealth redistributed to them, enjoy the benefits, and even today are skating off leaving the people to pay the bills. The people are getting the shaft, and they aren’t too happy about it. If austerity was proposed for all, including those who were on the receiving side of the welfare system for the wealthy…I would proffer the story in Greece would be much different.

        Take Germany as a prime example. When the Crash hit, the government there took care that the pain was shared by all strata of the system. Including the revenues for government operations. Tax on corporation is a tad below 30%, Capital Gains is 25%, and the highest income tax rate is 45%. The government implemented a subsidized, reduced working hour to combat unemployment, increased government spending by over 3%, but increased the tax revenues (mainly on upper incomes) so overall deficit spending went up less than 1%. In other words, Germany did what Obama proposed from the beginning..but was thwarted by the ultra right extremists and the GOP placing politics above Nation.

        Katrina, power outages etc? Natural disasters which, you are correct in my opinion, everyone should have supplies set in for. Water..in glass not plastic…and I’d suggest carbonated water to ease any stomach cramps by a change in diet or illness. I myself have about a week set in…mainly dried foods which I dried and stored myself when the harvests came in and the veggie/fruit stands were selling …

        But I do not espouse fear. I believe that many right wing extremists are guided by and led by fear, and the hate that is bred by fear. I believe those who are left wing extremists are guided by ideology.

        I’m not a Big government shill Mr. Livingston. What I am is a conservative leaning Moderate who recognizes extremism in any case is not the path to adhere to. I do believe regulation of business is a must. If only to even the playing field allowing small family businesses to exist…instead of what has been wrought by GOP/extremist Conservative ‘free market’ policies which allowed for the oligarchy to control the market. I strongly believe that in today’s world, government should be involved in R&D, as well as setting forth incentives (and disincentives) to encourage new industry.

        I do not believe we should employ the State to guide any belief system or give protection to religions via tax exemptions or “special” considerations just because they happen to be religiously based or operated. I have a strong faith in the Commons, and that we have no further frontiers to grow the Commons, so we need and require a “referee” to keep the rules even and fairly applied. And we do need rules…anarchy or unregulated chaos…whether it be social or economic…is not my idea of a good cup of tea.

        Thanx

        Flashy, your post is full of inaccuracies! It kills me how you just lie and make up crap!!! I responded to your earlier post where you lied and intimated that things were improving so much that soon, things would be peachy! You didn’t address your lies, ok excuse me, inaccuracies then, and you’re just trying to repeat them now! No one could possibly believe the crap that you spew!!! Do you honestly believe that if you repeat your lies often enough, people will start to believe them? That IS a communist tactic! It’s not going to work here! Go somewhere else!!! We’re SICK of your LIES!!!

        Only one cause. Supply vs demand. The visible symptoms are increased prices for commodities and essentials. Increased prices for gold and silver.

        QEinfinity dramatically increases the supply of monetary units called dollar. The producers of commodities and essentials simply ask for (and get) more dollars for their (bushel of grain, head of cattle, barrel of oil, ounce of (gold, silver…) ….)

        You will see the effect in a ground swell of prices on everything going up. Watch for the leading edge of that wave. It is already visible on the near horizon.

  • Larry the king

    The facts are what good is gold and silver if there is no food to buy or it is so expensive that the producers of food end up with all the silver an gold then guess who will be calling the shots.We have paper money because it is easier to carry around than a bag of gold and silver. I believe if our currency reverted back to backing of gold and silver than inflation would slow dramactically down and prices would be stable.One last thought and yes i have some gold and silver bullion but there only at this time worth what paper money will pay for them.

    • Nancy in Nebraska

      Larry, the food producers won’t end up with all of the gold and silver. They have to buy their seed, their tractors, combines etc… They have to buy fuel. They have to buy fertilizers, irrigation etc… The food producers will end up with whatever profit the market will bear. However, food production will fall because the food producers, in many cases won’t be able to front those costs. In addition to inflation, there will be food shortages. People should be prepared to grow their own food.

      • Elda

        I am a single mother of 4 adopted children. We have moved to a farm and grow food in the ground, green houses for year round greens, and animals for meat, eggs, and milk. There is a tomato plant in the green house that is doing great and it is over 2 years old as are some of the celery and Swiss Chard. We are already learning to make cheese and drying our produce. We can make it but now we must learn to defend it. Our neighbors are doing nothing to help themselves and that is scary to me. If things never get any worse, we are still ahead, if they do we are ahead. Have you ever had fresh raw goat milk. It is delicious!

      • Nancy in Nebraska

        Elda, that’s really cool! I admire you! I’ve got four 3′x20′ raised beds. I’ve been canning and dehydrating. I really wish I had a place like yours. However, I’ll pass on the goat’s milk. I don’t even like cow’s milk. Yuck!

    • John C

      If we reverted back now, you would instantly see the effects of Hyperinflation as the price of gold will skyrocket from $1775 per ounce to $10000 per ounce that is good for people who own gold…but it will take you from a loaf of bread costing $3 to it costing $50 this is good and bad it might even cause a revolt in the country also good and bad.

  • Chester

    Well, Warrior Man, a good number of them actually are, and that is happening more and more often. You would SEE it if you would crawl out of your cave and actually take a look around. More trucks on the highways than ever before, more new stores opening than at any time in the last ten years, and we are still going to hell in a handbasket? The same goes for all the rest of the naysayers on here. Don’t just sit back in your holes and cry doom, get out and see what is going on.

    • FreedomFighter

      Bravo Sierra Chester…5 dollar a gallon gas will make any products on any truck far more expensive, like say food…

      Higher food prices will eat up income even more so than 5-10 dollar a gallon gas will, QE III will give everyone less purchasing power, further reducing the purchasing power of everyones current income…

      crushing the middle class into poverty and making the poor — poorer

      To: Chester,
      I have seen over the last couple of years many business with signs going out of busines, the dollar is going to hell and it will collaspe. This government continues to waste money to the point that the dollar will collapse. This is being done by design, there will be a new form of government and it will be the New World Order, it is comming. Wake Up, why do you think omaba and hillary are working with the UN to take away our rights to Bear Arms. This is exactly what Hitler did, I see the same pattern first dis-arm all citizens in order to control the citizens by force. This is what this government is doing, they have a plan and this is taking place as we speak. We the people are being set up to failed by design.

    • TexasRide

      Chester, you must not be a business owner.

      Many small businesses have lost income, as the price of doing business keeps increasing, and there are fewer customers willing to pay the price increase necessary to keep up.

      Not only is there inflation, but coupled with the higher overhead, fewer people can afford the increase in the prices. Fewer sales makes the sellers increase their prices even more because the sellers need to make the amount of profit it takes to cover the increasing overhead. Coupled with that some sellers want to make the same amount of profit even though they have lost sales…another increase in prices. The result is that they lose even more customers. It is a vicious circle…

    • Jibbs

      You lie, there maybe more trucks on the road, but alot of them are LTL, I think you need to crawl out of your cave. There is a high demand for drivers, but they (companys) are weeding out the idiots. Please provide a source for your claims.

  • John C

    While the government keeps the price of Gols and silver relatiely low now is the time to buy..Gold is artifically low at $1775 per ounce.even as such over the last 10 yeras the price has risen 300% this means an average inflation rate of 30% per year over the last 10 and if you compare that with the price of food that same period it would seem about right. The real problem is you can not eat gold you must buy or grow your own food but the medium of the fiat currency will cause the coming hyperinflation overnight a loaf of bread costing $3 will cost you $20. I have moved to Brazil and although I am paid a lot less my money goes further food prices are half of what they are in the US. Brazil is energy independent they run their cars on a large part ethanol, which they make from sugar cane so energy prices are relatively stable and should go down once the US dollar collapses as American demand for gasoline will decrease. The sad part is it is going to hit many in the US very hard and I think to the point there will be a revolution in the US. As the government no longer funds its social programs and people start to starve

    Devaluation coming? Devaluation has been here since they started printing Federal Reserve NOTES. Every time they print more counterfeit FRN’s, the one’s out there are worth-less. If they found a way to turn dirt into gold, what would gold be worth? There turning money into dirt with all they’re printing. But there’s a catch. Their dirt is NOTES payable on demand to the holders. What they’re doing is posturing the whole world for takeover. The takeover of the world is not just the US when you consider that the counterfeit FRN’s are the world’s soverign currency. The dollar rules. There are countries like Iran, Syria, Russia, China, Brazil, India that posturing themselves against it and that’s where the turmoil comes in. We can’t forget the Zionists. Their tentacles are tight around America to a point where their ruling the world by ruling America.

    The Revolution is coming. I thought my cousin was crazy when he told me this 10 years ago. Now I see it is inevitable. First they will come to collect “taxes”, then your stockpile. THEN, reality will sink in, and awaken the sleeping giant; US. Remember the Civil War from grade school? That was nuthin’. I would venture to say that we will lose upwards of 10 percent of our population before the dust settles in the melee. Some will starve, some will die trying to steal food for themselves, but the bulk will die protecting what they have saved, and stealing it for the government.
    It is what OVomit wants. It is what they ALL want. To appear as loving, caring folks, but incite violence and destruction of civilization for the sake of “equality”. Trouble is, real Americans absolutely despise this sort of thing.

    Something’s gotta give, and the real Americans WILL fight to the death to restore the country and constitution. The question is: What side are you on? Are you for freedom and the heavily trampled constitution, or are you for those doing the trampling, and stealing?

    • http://alsina846.wordpress.com Linda from NYC

      To: Freedomfighter,

      Obama has divided this country, I see it in other forums where people will defend this man’s failed polices and go on the attacks to defend his honor, not that he has any. Obama is destroying this country, yes I admit that he inherited a bad economy but he has made it worst. I don’t understand why anyone would vote for this man and prefer 4 more years of no jobs and no prosperity but only poverty. Some of these people are only voting for him because he is black and feel the need to support him and others are out for the freebies, these people don’t seem to care what he is doing to our country, the change obama will give Americans is to change it to a socialist nation. Take from those who worked hard and give to those who will not help themselves such as career welfare recipients. I believe that this obamacare is going to be the nail on the coffin that will crash the economy, too many people on the system at the same time will bring it down. I pray he does not get re-elect and for Mitt Romney a chance to change direction and trie to save of what is left of America.

    you can buy bright uncirculated silver halves on ebay easily. i haven’t done this lately but the last time i bought i paid 290 or so for a roll of 1963 franklins (20 coins) that were never touched. the 63s are the best year for franklins because i think the mint held back their inventory with the plans to introduce the jfk. therefore there is less rarity numismatic pricing with them. well you aren’t buying, you are bidding. the best way to do it is to search by time ending soonest and jump in with a bid with less then a minute to go. this will catch everyone unawares. if you enter the auction too early and nurse your bidding along with each price increase you will show your hand, and they will know what to expect of you and outbid you by as little as 10 cents as the time expires. i shouldn’t be saying all this because now i’ll be going up against you. eddie47 and karolyn etc disregard this.

    Major governments around the world have decided that a UN world governnment will be the end all and cure for mankinds continued existence on this planet a thought that makes Americans madder than hell because the majority of us still like our own self reliance attitude and are willing to teach it to all who will listen. Communism or what ever you want to call it is directly opposed to this thinking that Americans posess, it takes their long time failed thinking and turns it inside out, the communist believe that man cannot exist as a self reliant society but needs the state to be there to intrude in all matters, it is government baby sitting and the utmost desire to control because a communist is a insecure individual and incapable of truly risking the achievement of anothers success….In the end if the state has decided what ever you have is theirs, then they will claim it and you have no say.

    we are so deep in debt they are taking up collections in mexico. moonbeam brown (gov) has an initiative for a tax increase on the ballot for nov. he is anticipating it’s passing and is spending this tax money before the bill is passed. of course the illegals and the entitlement society (47%’ers) will vote for this, they pay nothing as it is and expect any raise in tax will be to their benefits. they care less about these high gas prices, most who have cars don’t drive they sleep in them. “good ole happy days are here again” gas is =expected to go up to $4.85 and some are already charging over $5,00 today.

        “Gas prices on the West Coast hit record-breaking highs on Monday, averaging nearly $4.67 in much of California. Breaking records set in 2008, the recent surge in gasoline prices has been attributed to a series of pipeline and refinery problems that are slowing fuel production. ”

    b.c.(before president jimmy carter) hamburger 3lbs a $1.00 after 1lb $1.59 gas $.33 a gallon after $1.89 a gallon lived in Selma, Ala. at the time home mortgage 6% in just a little while home mortgage 15% if you could get it. often if you wanted to sell your home you would have to finance the equity in your home to the buyer your self, if you could afford it. prices of land and home increased a great deal people who had retired ok. with a monthly pension of $100 + social security in the end couldn’t pay their electric bill with the $100.00 bought a house for $8500 fixed it up and sold it 4yrs later for $14,500 , before a 3 bedroom brick house about 10,000 afterwards over $22,000. going out into a pasture and slaughtering some rancher,s cow for food became common place. Those who owned property had an easier time of it. so i decided that in the future i would own rental property and have money in the bank and damn if they haven’t screwed that plan up too. I didn’t hear of any body starving to death then and i don’t really expect to see that happen now. but it is wise and prudent to be prepared for emergency s and disasters. If you have a years supply of food on hand and you don’t use it or need to rotate your stock you can all ways donate it to the poor. if you have money saved up you can help the less fortunate. and most important you can take care of yourself and your family with out being a burden.

      I look at food storage as insurance. I buy health insurance in case I get sick or injured. I buy car insurance in case something unexpected happens while I’m driving. I buy food as insurance against a reckless, thieving, and corrupt Federal Reserve collapsing the US dollar. By the way, most fiat currencies last an average of 40 years. Our dollar was taken off the gold standard in 1971 by Richard Nixon. That means we are overdue for a collapse soon. Of course, with our dollar being the Reserve Currency, it may take a little longer. Survive by having gold, grub, guns, and a get away plan. :}

  • old hillbilly

    Inflation has been roughly 4.5%/yr over the past working lifetime (46 years). If you invested in a 1965 T-bill & kept it, 2011 face value is worth 14 cents of 1965 purchasing power on the dollar. If you sell it you lose $0.86 on the dollar purchasing power, and it isn’t tax deductable! The 224.91 CPI index for 2011 vs. 31.5 in 1965 says inflation was 714%. If you invested $1.00 in an asset in 1965 & sold it for $17.14 in 2011, you would be taxed on the false $16.14 gain.

    If you’re an average wage earner @ $43,500 paying 15.1% SSI-MED that increases with wage inflation (as it does now), zero interest, and inflation continues at 4.5%, you will have paid $1,022,768 in total SSI-MED taxes if you retire at the end of 2057. Your wages will be inflated to $329,487/yr. and your $1,022,768 contributions to SSI-MED will have evaporated to $576,776 which is only 1.75 years of 2057 salary, meaning the death panel will have to send you on your way to glory before your 67th birthday!

    But it doesn’t end there, the deposited cash is sent to the treasury where your money is instantly turned into worthless “you owe yourself notes”, salaries for politically correct bureaucrats, wars to empower the Muslim brotherhood, and endless political corruption… so much so, that trillions will be borrowed to pay retirement benefits!

    Assume zero inflation and a 5% interest (ROI) in the same example, you’ll retire making $43,500/yr and total SSI-MED contributions will be $312,809. The big difference is… (1) You will be a capitalist investing a very small part of your earnings to create production infrastructure and jobs! (2) Your fund will be worth $1,180,422 cash at retirement! (3) That equals 27+ years of employment wages, which can pay you and all of your descendants $55,894/yr forever and ever more, far more than the $43,500 wages you earned all of those working years. Imagine no sneaky taxes, no death panels – possibly living older than Moses or forever more instead of pulling your plug at 66yr. & 9mo.! Your zero inflation $55,894 forever interest only is roughly $399,000/yr inflated. Imagine $576,776 inflation devalued & zero interest nest egg

    We can’t seem to add things up & hold feet to the fire. Easy to use annuity computer programs are available everywhere, but we don’t use them! It may be too big to fail, but it won’t be too big to destroy our free economy and the lives of all but a few citizens. We need a massive political come-uppance – maybe an inquisition – where corruption has no quarter, nowhere to hide, and literally on the run!

    MR. Paul and the tea party best throw all of their support behind Govenor Romney. They will act like hair-brains, screw Romney out of votes,and help him lose the election, and then we will be in a Mel-of-a-Hess. Mr. Ron you and the tea party acts like you don’t have any common sense. Wake up and smell the tea. Don’t be stupid just because you can. You all are acting like those hardcore, far left leaning liberals. Ron just because you and the tea party don’t have what it takes to win don’t be foolish and condim the U.S.A. Use your head for something besides a hat rack. I am a registered Democrat, but I wasn’t born stupid, nor have I gotten that way in my 66 years of life which I thank God for. Please,just think about results of your actions before you act!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Soviet Union was another good example of currency devaluation. All countries die for the same reason. Bankers and businessman colluding to control the means of production by harnessing governments power to tax and redistribute. Once you control the majority through an income tax, you can spend and tax to manipulate what every industry you want to control. Mises stated. If socialist understood economics they wouldn’t be socialists.
