I'm so sorry for you. My sister's friend's husband's ex-husband cheated with the husband of his cousin's ex-boyfriend...twice!  (Oct 21, 2013 | post #65)

Think About This

My question is: why don't you give a shit? Why do you allow yourselves to be lied to, bullied, harassed, victimized and punished for the sole purpose of upholding a sophistry; a sophistry that all governmental functions in most all capacities are essential? My thesis is simple: anyone who allows another entity to decide for them which is fair and unfair--in all matters of life--is a coward. This includes myself, sometimes. A vague statement. But it becomes tangible when I call you a coward for paying an income tax--or an idiot--for not understanding that government is almost completely unnecessary. Yes--almost all of government--is poisonous and redundant, in reality. So who is government? You will not like the answer; I certainly do not. Government is anyone who receives money--under any circumstance--from the pubic dole. This includes teachers, the armed forces, police officers, welfare recipients and anyone on social security, homeowners, college students, healthcare workers of any capacity, and any business which accepts borrowed government money in the forms of subsidy or contract. I think Politicians qualify, too. So, in America, most of us are part of the government. There are very few examples of industrially prosperous people whom haven't accepted support from government; tax returns are not included. My challenge to you is: decide for yourself if you believe in valor. Is there such thing as right and wrong? Are all things relative? If I make a trade with someone, is it ok for the government to steal part of my trade? If a construction manager desires my service of labor, and he offers to trade a bicycle in exchange for a full day's worth of my work--and I accept--is it fair for the government to be able to confiscate the front tire of my bike? If I become hungry after having chosen not to trade to acquire food, why does government sanction me to take from a grocery store at the expense of others? Why am I forced by law to engage in trade with certain businesses, such as automotive insurance in New York, and upcoming, healthcare insurance everywhere in the country? If I don't value the benefits of their services, I should not be forced to trade with them. This is regardless of whether it actually benefits me or not. It is completely my choice. I will accept all risk and all rewards in my choices. Why can the government force someone to work against their will for the benefit and at the expense of another? If I am a physician, why am I required to provide my service of labor to someone who has not acquired a private health plan? Why does anyone have the "right" to my service of labor? If the government pays me for work, do I not, then, work for the government? If I own a bank or a private school, how do I compete with the government to provide the best service at the lowest cost? It's hard. The student who graduates from my private school will pay a high tuition for college because the government will guarantee their loan. Why wouldn't a business such as a college, or hospital--raise their prices--if all which they charge is guaranteed to be paid? Do I have a right to have a happy marriage? Can the government force someone to marry me and be happy? No. I have to make a happy marriage, myself and my wife. I have to work for it. I cannot use government to force someone to be happy with me and love me, even if I think I have a right to it, and deserve it. Think.  (Oct 19, 2013 | post #1)

A Good Story

Here is a story which is analogous to the USA 's current economic/geopoliti cal posturing and circumstance, that I think will be well understood. Its about four shipwrecked inhabitants on an island. Four people--three Asians and an American--found theirselves shipwrecked on an island. Led by the American, the group strategized a survival plan--allocating duties among the four members. One Asian would fish all day; another would hunt for game and make clothing. The third Asian would build a shelter, make tools, and cook the food. The American, who by happenstance held onto his pistol while the boat capsized, held the duty of consuming the lions' share of the meals, and leading a daily speech of thanksgiving--to the ocean, island and Mother Nature, Herself--for providing a bounty of food for their sustenance. The Asians were grateful for his role, for, had it not been for the American, the value of their labor would be naught and their efforts fruitless. Of course, he would graciously share with his fellow inhabitants that food--albeit not much--which was left over,for them to eat. The foursome grew close over time, and one day,their great pain was equally shared when their brother fisherman was found washed ashore; he had drown in the sea. A tribute was held--led by the American--to honor his life and hard work. The two remaining Asians wept as the American beautifully euligized their fallen brother, lamenting the great loss and describing the fisherman's dedication to his work on the island. He surprised the two Asians with his testimony that, only days before, their brother fisherman attempted to teach him to fish for himself--for the American had gained much weight while serving his duties--and their brother--compassio nate as the kindest of brothers could be--expressed to the American his desire to share his skill with him. "Perhaps God has not found me worthy of learning my brother's great skill, for he was truly a master fisherman and loyal brother", sobbed the American through his heartfelt declination. It was noticed by the two Asians, oddly, that the American had cast a suspicious glance toward them at the end of his sermon, and that his speech was slurred. And so the trio pressed on. Perhaps an expression of grief from their loss, suspicions grew over time among the three remaining brothers. It was suddenly customary for the American to accompany one of the two Asians at any given time while hunting or preparing food, respectively. Fishing duties were now shared among the two Asians, who grew to distrust each other over suspicions of the others pilfering of food. Only when they came to blows one evening, did the American step in to mediate between the two. Such hostility lingered for a lengthy period of time afterward. It was after a particularly large meal one evening and when the American--who had been slurring his words all night--had fallen into a deep sleep, did the two Asians have their first conversation in quite a long time. It was noticed by the both of them that, the American had had his pistol in his hand as he slept, and each acknowledged witnessing him sleep that way every night. After much discussion, the Hunter and Builder came to realize the error of their ways. They spoke of how the American manipulated them into mistrust and envy of one another, and most importantly, of the value in both their work unto itself. The next morning, when the body of the American washed ashore--for he had met the fisherman's end--the two Asians planned and worked for what would prove to be the largest meal either of them had ever eaten. They vowed that evening that, neither of them would ever work for the sake of another man, and would never doubt the conviction of their own mind.  (Oct 17, 2013 | post #1)

Debt has nothing to do w/ the problem at hand, my friend. Neither does spending money. Both are toxic to our economy.  (Sep 27, 2013 | post #74)

Obama the Socialist

He is a socialist; no question about it. Due to our inherently flawed monetary system, neither Obama or Romney is capable of correcting the deficit. But Obama will increase it much more dramatically than would Romney. The best politician is one who does absolutely nothing. That's right, nothing. Just sit there and get paid, and let We, The People handle the economy.  (Nov 6, 2012 | post #1)

The Most Important Book of All-Time?

In my opinion, it is 'The Creature From Jekyll Island', by G. Edward Griffin. A close tie for second--is--in my opinion, between '1984' by George Orwell, and 'Atlas Shrugged' by Ayn Rand.  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #1)

The Next Great Depression

I think films such as these distract from the overall point; rather than paying attention to monetary policy, the focus is aimed at secret societies. This film was made during the Vietnam war, and I think it's main pupose was to distract people's attention during wartime. A one-world government under the circumstances described in the film would be no different than our current situation today. It's a scare-film. A SMALL one-world government--princi pled in the intelligent management of technology and world resorces, combined with the dissolving of this hierarchial world-society--wou ld be much more preferable than our current corrupt system.  (Sep 22, 2012 | post #67)

I liked this short video. Thank you for posting it; it definately gives clarity to some unanswered questions regarding our military's many overseas operations--or investments.  (Sep 21, 2012 | post #65)

The Next Great Depression

You are greatly missing the overall point, my friend. The focus is not only on our impending economic collapse, but on current circumstances which necessitate a prudent preparedness for those who wish to thrive. Anyone who pays any attention to worldly affairs (i.e. economic policy/geopolitica l affairs) is accutely aware that a collapse is imminent. Not only is an "enjoy the moment" attitude nieve, it is dangerously irresponsible in light of these very troubled times. I suggest you do some research on subjects such as the Federal Reserve, the Great Depression, etc, and you will better understand--and perhaps embrace--the discontent shared by millions of Americans. Good luck to you.  (Sep 21, 2012 | post #64)

Very good point. To refine my point, I believe an impending collapse is approaching. A recession is when your neighbor looses his job. A depression is when you loose your job. And a collapse is when everyone is out of work.  (Sep 20, 2012 | post #59)

The Next Great Depression

I understand your point. I think the circumstances we face speak for themselves. You have to have an understanding of topics such as the federal reserve, our overall monetary system, the great inventions of physist Nicola Tesla (and their implications for feedom), and overall American History, to understand my point. It was the writings of Thomas Paine which sparked the American Revolution, you know. America was a British colony at first, and King George was imposing very high taxation and forcing the citizens of the new colony to use money from his central bank. They also had no representatives for them back in England, either. "no taxation without representation ", etc. England, at the time, was the largest empire on earth ("The sun never sets on England"), much like America is today. The people were sick of their corrupt government, which--in collusion with a central bank--was able to grow huge by printing fiat money. The same thing is happening again today. In fact, our country broke away from Britain for the exact same reason people are pissed off about here today: corrupt government in collusion with corrupt bankers. Sorry for typing so much, but its imoprtant to understand these things in order to become fully aware of our situation. I hope this made sense to you, but the truth is we need a huge overhaul of our entire system. Thanks for at least reading these posts, even if you disagree. Most people don't even talk about it.  (Sep 20, 2012 | post #57)
