In Business/Political Trends Worldwide on July 22, 2011 at 5:10 pm

This is CRAP!!!!
It is just like everything in this administration.
Too bad we didn’t kick out enough of Obama’s idiots from the Senate as well.Watch for this AFTER November elections; remember
this BEFORE you VOTE in case you think Obama’s
looking out for your best interest.1% tax on all bank transactions HR 4646This government just cannot think of enough ways
to hurt the American people!This Bill must die
FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!
1% tax on all bank transactions
HR 4646 ANOTHER NEW OBAMA TAX SLIPPED IN WHILE WE WERE ASLEEP.
Checked this on snopes , it’s true! Check out HR 4646. (see below copied from Snopes)

President Obama’s finance team is recommending a
one percent (1%) transaction fee (TAX). Obama’s
plan is to sneak it in after the November
elections to keep it under the radar.

This is a 1% tax on all transactions at any
financial institution – banks , credit unions ,
savings and loans , etc. Any deposit you make , or
even a transfer within your account , will have a
1% tax charged.

If your paycheck or your social security or
whatever is direct deposit , it will get a 1% tax
charged for the transaction.

If your paycheck is $1000 , then you will pay
Obama $10 just for the privilege of depositing
your paycheck in your bank. Even if you hand carry
your paycheck or any check into your bank for a
deposit , 1% tax will be charged.

You receive a $5 , 000 stock dividend from your
broker , Obama takes $50 just to allow you to
deposit that check in the bank..

If you take $1 , 000 cash to deposit at your bank ,
1% tax will be charged.

Mind you , this is from the man who promised that ,
if you make under $250 , 000 per year , you will not
see one penny of new tax. Keep your eyes and ears
open , you will be amazed at what you learn about
this guy’s under-the-table moves to increase the
number of ways you are taxed.

Oh , and by the way , you receive a refund from
the IRS next year and you have it direct
deposited or you walk in to deposit that check ,
you guessed it. You will pay a 1% charge of that
money just for putting it in your bank. Remember ,
any money , cash , check or whatever , no matter
where it came from , you will pay a 1% fee if you
put it in the bank.

Some will say , oh well , it’s just 1%. Are you
kidding me? It’s a 1% tax increase across the
board. Remember , once the tax is there , they can
also raise it at will.. And if anyone protests , they will just say ,
“oh , that’s not really a tax , it’s a user fee”! Think this is no
big deal? Go back and look at the transactions you
made from last year’s banking statements. Then add
the total of all those transactions and deduct 1%..
Still think it’s no big deal??? Vicki

Sovereign Man

Notes from the Field

Date: July 22, 2011
Reporting From: Split, Croatia

Over the last few weeks I’ve gotten away from our usual tradition of having a weekly Q&A session, so I’m going to get right to it today.

First, Constanza asks, “Simon, you were writing recently about ‘international diversification.‘ Can you explain a bit more about this?”

Sure. It’s becoming obvious that there are massive problems in the developed world– ballooning debts, stagnating economies, soaring inflation, high unemployment, food and energy shortages, rising crime, increased regulation, diminished civil liberties, etc.

These problems aren’t going away just because some politicians pull an accounting stunt or deny that they exist.  These problems are real, and thinking individuals need to realize that the consequences of inaction are only going to get worse.

Most people will unfortunately do nothing and wait for a political solution. Their faith in their elected leaders will unfortunately be rewarded with a front-row seat to witness the final erosion of their country.

Others will take the approach of trying to change the system. Relying on the democratic process certainly seems like a noble cause, but remember that democracy is really just two wolves and a lamb deciding what to have for dinner.

International diversification is the cornerstone of my own ethos– it involves looking overseas to protect you interests and seek new opportunities. If your home, your work, your family’s safety, your savings, your healthcare, and your entire livelihood are tied to one crumbling country, you are exposed to substantial risk.

Diversifying internationally can drastically reduce this risk. It might mean finding more stable sources of income overseas, better stores of value for your savings, stronger markets to invest in, safer places for your family to live, more cost effective places to obtain healthcare, more secure places to store gold, etc.

I’m not suggesting that everyone should get on a plane tomorrow and leave home… though for some people who have reached their breaking points, this is the ultimate solution. What I am suggesting is that people stop limiting themselves to a single country that’s in decline, and begin to consider the wider world.

On that note, Alvinium asks, “Simon, you recently wrote that owning agricultural land is a great hedge against rising food prices. What about the FDA, USDA, and other agencies that are stepping up their efforts to make it a crime to grow one’s own organic food?”

Easy. I think people in the US should consider buying property overseas where there is no FDA or USDA to stop them from reducing their ‘agflation’ risk.

A few months ago in an issue of Sovereign Man: Confidential, I interviewed Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms; Joel was featured in the documentary Food, Inc., and he has decades of personal anecdotes in dealing with various agencies, many of which are chronicled in his book ‘Everything I Want to Do is Illegal.

He told me one recent story about a school in California that grows its own carrots. The children pick the carrots and wash them before eating, but the local Health Department came in and said that the children are not allowed to wash and eat those carrots without a Food Handlers’ license.

It sounds like a sick joke, but the system definitely favors the big ag companies at the expense of individuals. To me, you can try to fight the system, or simply go somewhere else where you are free to do what you want.

Chile is the place that I’ve chosen for our resilient community exactly for this reason. In the future, I don’t think there will be too many things more important than a steady, healthy, independent food supply… and I’m not willing to take the risk of having some government agency dictate what I can/can’t do.

Last, Elai asks, “Simon, a lot of people blast Ben Bernanke, but given the tools that he has at his disposal, what can he do to improve the economy?

Think about it like this– even in the most basic economics classes, students learn that price controls just don’t work. Electricity is a great example– many governments (Argentina for instance) fix retail electricity prices at artificially low levels. This creates excess demand, often causing major power shortages.

Suppose the government announced that iPads would now cost $1. Everyone would rush out immediately to buy one, and as there would no longer be a profit incentive for Apple to continue manufacturing them, an iPad shortage would quickly ensue.

Simply put, price fixing creates terrible distortions in the marketplace that lead to shortages or gross misallocations of resources.

Now, consider that interest rates are essentially the price of money– the price which a willing borrower agrees to pay a willing lender in exchange for a specified amount of capital.

If we can agree that price controls are a bad idea, why does it seem like a good idea to give one man nearly sole control to set the price of money? This is absolutely the one price that shouldn’t be controlled above all else!

The price of money affects everything in an economy— savings, spending, investment, foreign exchange rates… the price of money has the most far-reaching implications, and yet our financial system leaves setting this price to the serially erroneous prognostications of a single individual rather than the market.

Bernanke’s role is to control the price of money, and it’s a role that should not exist. The issue isn’t what he can do to improve the economy… but that he has any function in the economy whatsoever!

Until tomorrow,

Thanksgiving, a cherished Holiday, or one that may not be cherished soon??……..Admin/capecoralblogger

In Business/Political Trends Worldwide, Constitution of The United States, Expatriation, History, Political, Political parties, Sovereign Man, Taxes, Travel on July 21, 2011 at 7:47 pm

THIS MAY NOT BE AS FAR FETCHED AS SOME MIGHT SAY

—–Original Message—Sent: Thu, Jul 21, 2011 12:58 pm by a unknown blogger.
Subject: Thanksgiving 2022

“Winston, come into the dining room, it’s time to eat,” Julia yelled to her
husband.
“In a minute, honey, it’s a tie score,” he answered.Actually Winston wasn’t very interested in the traditional holiday football
game between Detroit and Washington .Ever since the government passed the
Civility in Sports Statute of 2017, outlawing tackle football for its
“unseemly violence” and the “bad example it sets for the rest of the world”,
Winston was far less of a football fan than he used to be.Two-hand touch wasn’t nearly as exciting. Yet it wasn’t the game that
Winston was uninterested in.
It was more the thought of eating another Tofu Turkey . Even though it was
the best type of VeggieMeat available after the government revised the
American Anti-Obesity Act of 2018, adding fowl to the list of
federally-forbidden foods, (which already included potatoes, cranberry
sauce, and mincemeat pie), it wasn’t anything like real turkey.And ever since the government officially changed the name of “Thanksgiving
Day” to “A National Day of Atonement” in 2020, to officially acknowledge the
Pilgrims’ historically brutal treatment of Native Americans, the holiday had
lost a lot of its luster.

Eating in the dining room was also a bit daunting. The unearthly gleam of
government-mandated fluorescent light bulbs made the Tofu Turkey look even
weirder than it actually was, and the room was always cold.

Ever since Congress passed the Power Conservation Act of 2016, mandating all
thermostats – which were monitored and controlled by the electric company –
be kept at 68 degrees, every room on the north side of the house was barely
tolerable throughout the entire winter.

Still, it was good getting together with family. Or at least most of the
family.

Winston missed his mother, who passed on in October, when she had used up
her legal allotment of life-saving medical treatment.

He had had many heated conversations with the Regional Health Consortium,
spawned when the private insurance market finally went bankrupt, and
everyone was forced into the government health care program.

And though he demanded she be kept on her treatment, it was a futile effort.

“The RHC’s resources are limited”, explained the government bureaucrat
Winston spoke with on the
phone. “Your mother received all the benefits to which she was entitled. I’m
sorry for your loss.”

Ed couldn’t make it either. He had forgotten to plug in his electric car
last night, the only kind available after the Anti-Fossil Fuel Bill of 2021
outlawed the use of the combustion engines – for everyone but government
officials.

The fifty mile round trip was about ten miles too far, and Ed didn’t want to
spend a frosty night on the road somewhere between here and there.

Thankfully, Winston’s brother, John, and his wife were flying in.

Winston made sure that the dining room chairs had extra cushions for the
occasion.

No one complained more than John about the pain of sitting down so soon
after the government-mandated cavity searches at airports, which severely
aggravated his hemorrhoids.

Ever since a terrorist successfully smuggled a cavity bomb onto a jetliner,
the TSA told Americans the added “inconvenience” was an “absolute necessity”
in order to stay “one step ahead of the terrorists.”

Winston’s own body had grown accustomed to such probing ever since the
government expanded their scope to just about anywhere a crowd gathered, via
Anti-Profiling Act of 2022.

That law made it a crime to single out any group or individual for “unequal
scrutiny,” even when probable cause was involved.

Thus, cavity searches at malls, train stations, bus depots, etc., etc., had
become almost routine.
Almost.

The Supreme Court is reviewing the statute, but most Americans expect a
Court composed of six progressives and three conservatives to leave the law
intact.

“A living Constitution is extremely flexible”, said the Court’s eldest
member, Elena Kagan. ” Europe has had laws like this one for years. We
should learn from their example”, she added.

Winston’s thoughts turned to his own children.  He got along fairly well
with his 12-year-old daughter, Brittany, mostly because she ignored him.
Winston had long ago surrendered to the idea that she could text anyone at
any time, even during Atonement Dinner.

Their only real confrontation had occurred when he limited her to 50,000
texts a month, explaining that was all he could afford.

She whined for a week, but got over it.

His 16-year-old son, Jason, was another matter altogether. Perhaps it was
the constant bombarding he got in public school that global warming, the
bird flu, terrorism, or any of a number of other calamities were “just
around the corner”, but Jason had developed a kind of nihilistic attitude
that ranged between simmering surliness and outright hostility.

It didn’t help that Jason had reported his father to the police for smoking
a cigarette in the house, an act made criminal by the Smoking Control
Statute of 2018, which outlawed smoking anywhere within 500 feet of another
human being.

Winston paid the $5,000 fine, which might have been considered excessive
before the American dollar became virtually worthless as a result of QE13.

The latest round of quantitative easing the federal government initiated
was, once again, to “spur economic growth.”

This time, they promised to push unemployment below its years-long rate of
18%, but Winston was not particularly hopeful.

Yet the family had a lot for which to be thankful, Winston thought, before
remembering it was a Day of Atonement.

At least, he had his memories.

He felt a twinge of sadness when he realized his children would never know
what life was like in the Good Old Days, long before government promises to
make life “fair for everyone” realized their full potential.

Winston, like so many of his fellow Americans, never realized how much
things could change when they didn’t happen all at once, but little by
little, so people could get used to them.

He wondered what might have happened if the public had stood up while there
was still time, maybe back around 2011 , when all the real nonsense began.

“Maybe we wouldn’t be where we are today if we’d just said ‘enough is
enough’ when we had the chance,” he thought.

Maybe so, Winston. Maybe so.

Notes from the Field

Reporting From: Split, Croatia

Print. Lie. Borrow. Deceive. Deny. These are a the principal tenants of the Greek restructuring plan that were released today from Brussels… it’s as if EU policymakers put it together after shaking a Magic 8-ball.

The whole world knows that Greece is bankrupt and has been living bailout to bailout for over a year. Deep in debt and devoid of cash, the country has completely forsaken its sovereignty in exchange for becoming a ward of the European Union; Prime Minister George Papandreou is now a hapless stooge awaiting instructions from Germany.

It’s ironic that the Greek proposal released today calls for a ‘Marshall Plan’ of investment across Europe… given that the last time Greece was being controlled by Germany was during the country’s occupation by Nazi forces after being vanquished by Hitler’s 12th Army in April 1941.

And so, with limited debate and even less fanfare, Europe has just officially signed on to destroy its own currency. Utterly worthless, quasi-defaulted Greek debt will become perfectly acceptable collateral, much in the same way that the US Federal Reserve took every scrap of toxic paper it could find off banks in 2008 and 2009.

Given the favorable market reaction, European politicians must be feeling pretty proud of themselves. The euro is up. The stock market is up. Oil is up. Well, never mind about oil, they’ll blame that on evil speculators… just like food prices.

And the proposal is so deliberately vague, they can go back home and tell constituents whatever they want. Angela Merkel can tell German voters that the French are paying for it, and Sarkozy and tell French voters that the Germans are paying for it. Win, win!

The European sovereign default SOP has just been set. When Spain, Italy, Portugal, and Ireland’s time of insolvency arrives, it will be handled just like this: Print. Lie. Borrow. Deceive. Deny.

Every day it becomes more and more obvious that the financial system as we know it is breaking down. The United States and European monetary union, whose currencies comprise nearly the entirety of the world’s fiat reserves, have both signed up to debase their currencies as rapidly as possible.

This is going to kick inflation up another notch as anyone holding on to Greek debt is going to trade out of it as quickly as possible. All that money has to go somewhere… and it’s a sure bet that a lot of it will feed rising commodities price (which translates into more inflation).

If you haven’t found a safe haven for your savings yet, it’s time to start. Now. No more excuses. A few you could consider:

Swiss franc, Norwegian krone, Singapore dollar, Chilean peso: These four currencies are generally regarded as safer, stronger, and managed by less obtuse central banks. In a world of fiat, these are among the least worst of the bunch.

Unidad de Fomento (UF): This is a special unit of account used in Chile that was set up during the hyperinflation days of the 1960s. The UF is designed to keep pace with inflation and it’s possible to establish a bank account denominated in UF in Chile. I’ll be telling SMC members how to do that in an upcoming issue.

Agricultural Property: Nothing hedges your risk against rising food prices like being able to produce your own food. This idea underpins the concept for the resilient community we’re planning in South America.

Precious Metals: Portable, divisible, durable, and scarce, precious metals are the classic hedge against rising prices. Gold and silver aren’t going to go up in a straight line, and gold in particular is due for a correction, but in a world ruled by an economic magic 8-ball, it’s a much safer store of value than a government IOU.

High quality equities: If my only two options are Apple stock and a bank account earning 0% interest, I’m going with Steve Jobs. The chief problem with equities is that the more money that central banks print, the more money flows into equities… pushing valuations up to dizzying (and unsustainable) levels.

Firearms and ammunition: Weapons and ammo serve a dual purpose of providing better home security, as well as a reasonable store of value. Unfortunately, they can also serve a third purpose– putting you on some government agency’s radar.

This list is by no means exhaustive… but if you have the majority of your savings just sitting there wasting away, it’s time to act.

Until tomorrow,

Sovereign Man Notes from the Field

Date: July 20, 2011

Reporting From: Split, Croatia

Bruce Lee, a long-time hero of mine, died 38-years ago today, and in tribute to his intellect and philosophy, I wanted to blow the dust off an old quote of his that seems quite prescient:

“Those who are unaware they are walking in darkness will never seek the light.”

Each day it becomes increasingly obvious that there are essentially two kinds of people in this world– those who are unaware that they walk in the darkness, completely oblivious to the real dangers in the world, versus those who understand reality and seek the truth. The former group comprises the vast majority of society.

This is your voting electorate and mainstream media audience, and they’ll buy every bit of propaganda that’s sent their way… whether it’s support for the war(s), ruinous economic programs, child molesting TSA policies, or just plain old fear and hate. In its latest effort to spread fear and hate, the Ministry of Love, also known as the Department of Homeland Security, has produced an Orwellian new video intended to encourage Americans to rat each other out.

If you’re not in a place to watch the video right now, I’ll summarize briefly. First of all, it’s one of the most pathetic attempts at filmmaking in the history of motion picture; the average shampoo commercial has better acting and production quality… and is much more subtle in its message.

In the world of Homeland Security, terrorists all drive unmarked full-size vans, wear hooded sweatshirts, and deposit backpacks in conspicuous public places. They might as well have had a cackling James Bond villain twirling his moustache in the corner.

At its core, the video is filled with scenes of ordinary citizens spying on each other and alerting the authorities to their compatriots’ suspicious deeds. In my favorite scene, a woman calls the police after snooping over the shoulder of a young man typing away on his smartphone. Naturally, it’s all for the common good… for everyone’s safety and security. In fact, everyone shares in this responsibility according to DHS, so we should all be on our toes to rat each other out at the first sign of suspicious activity.

Apparently this is yet another obligation that comes with citizenship. For the majority of people who watch this video, their chests will swell with pride in the knowledge that they now have a role to play in their country’s security. These are the folks walking around in the darkness, unaware. You can’t talk to them about things like personal liberty as they’ll just regurgitate the propaganda they’ve been spoon fed since birth. These are the same folks who take their shoes off at the airport and proclaim, “Whatever it takes to keep us safe,” or “I have nothing to hide!”

Truthfully, real criminals aren’t back alley types, but rather the policymakers who spread fear and paranoia in the name of justice. They cloak their crimes in good deeds while building a brainwashed class of future Thought Police. If Orwell had written a prequel to 1984, this would all be part of it. It seems the boiling frog is getting just a bit warmer..

America, have you heard or seen this????….Via E-mail by a Veteran Friend this day

In Constitution of The United States, Government, History, Personal, Political on July 19, 2011 at 9:09 am
Just a reminder as to what our president truly believes.



Do you remember this? Don’t forget it, we’ll get more of the same in 2012 and onward……….Bill
WHY ARE WE SURPRISED.  SOME OF US KNEW HE WAS A MORON BEFORE THE ELECTION!
Attached Message
I forward this as received, and without comment.
Yes, he told us in advance what he planned to do.  Few were listening.
The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised “Meet The Press’.
From Sunday’s 07 Sept. 2008  11:48:04 EST,  Televised “Meet the Press” THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.
 
General Bill Ginn’ USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn’t follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.
The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171…
During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, “Stand and Face It”.

NOW GET THIS !!
 
‘Senator’ Obama replied:

“As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides”. “There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression..” “The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing.”

(ARE YOU READY FOR THIS???)

Obama continued: “The National Anthem should be ‘swapped’ for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like To Teach the World To Sing’.  If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it.  In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as ‘redesign’ our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love.  It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America     to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren.  If we, as a Nation of waring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails – – – perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments …..”
When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past”.
“Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path..My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country’s First black Family.  Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America “

WHAAAAAAAT, the Hell is that???
Yes, you read it right.
I, for one, am speechless!!!

Sovereign Man

Notes from the Field

Date: July 18, 2011
Reporting From: Becici, Montenegro

In March 2010, President Obama signed into law one of the most arrogant, unfeasible bills ever to hit the books.

Known as FATCA [Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act], it was enacted as part of the inappropriately titled HIRE Act; the law requires that foreign banks must disclose personal account details for their US clients, essentially agreeing to get in bed with the US government.

If a foreign bank does not agree to disclose information on all of its US customers, then the law further requires that noncompliant banks withhold a 30% tax on all payments that may have originated from the United States.

The arrogance of this law is overwhelming. It would be as if the Saudi King issued a decree forbidding US grocery store chains to sell pork to Saudi citizens while on US soil. Crazy, right? Americans would be up in arms– who do those Saudi’s think they are, trying to control a US company on US soil?

But that’s exactly what FACTA does. Needless to say, the international banking scene has been up in arms since March 2010 when the law was passed. Those cries have largely fallen on deaf ears… until late last week when the US government granted a brief extension for the law to take effect.

This is important, and I’ll explain why.

We’re in the early stages of what I call the Age of Turmoil– a tumultuous time in which governments turn to increasingly desperate, authoritarian measures in order to maintain the status quo.

They drive their economies into the ground, generate painful inflation, and destroy the livelihoods of millions, even hundreds of millions… and when you don’t like it, they turn their police forces after you to ensure they still get to live a life of power and privilege on your dime.

We’ve already seen these people in action– they’ve seized pension accounts, turned the nation into a police state, ruined the economy with corrupt, reckless spending programs, inflated the currency to dangerous levels, and made it extremely difficult to do basic things like establish a business or even open a bank account.

There are a few things you can try to do about it. The default option for most people is to do nothing. They’ll stick their heads in the sand as things continue to get worse and their families’ livelihoods get eaten away by public policy.

Others think they can ‘vote the bums out,’ only later to realize that the brand new crop of politicians is just as bad as the old batch.

I’ve long been an advocate of the internationalization approach– diversifying your assets and interests overseas to reduce the control that one single government has over you.

If you live, work, bank, invest, own property, store gold, operate a business, etc. in the same country of your citizenship, you are truly putting all of your eggs in one basket.

Internationalization is an approach to take back your privacy, cut your ‘sovereign risk,’ and declare your economic independence, and it’s what I discuss every month in our premium service, Sovereign Man: Confidential. Think of it as your personal, offshore intelligence service.

To give you an idea, here’s what you missed in the July edition that just came out over the weekend:

– How to LEGALLY establish a private, numbered account in one of the world’s strongest banking jurisdictions… as well as how to remain compliant with the law. I tell you exactly who to contact to get started.

– How to establish residency in an extremely safe, modern, vibrant, cost effective, beautiful, and FREEDOM LOVING European location… it’s a fantastic choice for families, retirees, and even singles. Again, I tell you exactly who to contact.

– My boots on the ground recommendations for entrepreneurial business ideas in one of the world’s most opportunity-rich boom towns. Some require very little up-front capital, and you can make a fortune;

– New intelligence just revealed about relinquishing US citizenship;

– Portfolio strategies to protect against (and profit from) the coming economic slowdown that we see happening in China

– How to make the right kinds of internationalization decisions– walking through your own situation, and what to do about it.

This is the sort of actionable intelligence that can help you survive and thrive in the Age of Turmoil by reducing your exposure to any one single government. It will take time for you to implement these strategies… and given the FATCA extension I told you about earlier, the limited window of opportunity is now open.

I strongly encourage you to consider these strategies; no matter what happens, you will sleep better at night knowing that your family’s livelihood is much better protected.

The alternative– doing nothing– could be devastating.

Notes from the Field

Date: July 14, 2011
Reporting From: Thessaloniki, Greece

Last night I had quite an unexpected surprise.

You see, at my hotel here in Thessaloniki, there’s a delegation from some group of the European Parliament called the Committee on Regional Development. They’re here to help… Hey, isn’t that what they always say? The Committee wants to supervise Greece working its way out of the debt crisis and make sure that Greece’s poor are getting the support they need.

The hotel’s restaurant was filled with these sycophantic parasites last night– an entire room full of people with a superiority complex who think that they are entitled to make decisions about other people’s lives and money.

They sat at dinner drinking fine wine and polishing up steak tartare making proud, bombastic proclamations about the virtues of foreign aid, the democratic process, and the great progress of Greece’s austerity measures.

Coincidentally, not 300 meters down the road, a campsite has been gathering for economic refugees, Thessaloniki’s former middle class that has been vanquished by the crisis. Some of the children swung by the restaurant’s outdoor terrace begging for change, only to be waved off by one of the delegate’s extended pinkie fingers as he sipped his wine.

It couldn’t have been more ironic… the perfect image of what passes for democracy today, right here in the country that invented it.

Today’s democracy is nothing more that pseudo-authoritarian rule by an elite few, executed by legions of self-deluding freeloaders who have convinced themselves that their current bureaucratic roles are both necessary and honorable… as well as a stepping stone into the next job which will be even more necessary and honorable.

With each successive position up the bureaucratic ladder comes more power, more privilege… until they actually expect to be called “The Honorable…” so and so, or “His Excellency” so and so, etc.

My dictionary suggests a few definitions for ‘honor’. One of them refers to a person’s chastity… and I doubt it applies in this case given the political establishment’s Twitter record. The other definition says, “conferred as a distinction, especially an official award for bravery or achievement.”

In the United States, they must be confusing the term ‘achievement’ with ‘destroying the economy and culture of the formerly most powerful nation on earth.’  President Obama is apparently so honorable that he can’t even be bothered to hold negotiations anymore about debt compromise, arguing that Ronald Reagan wouldn’t be doing that…

He seems more concerned about his esteem and rank being respected than facing the grim facts of economic reality.

Simultaneous on Capitol Hill, Comrade Bernanke sent the dollar plummeting once again. Just to put things in perspective, the entire eurozone is on the precipice of a meltdown, and the euro had been falling for days. The second this man opened his mouth, the dollar plunged… indicating that investors would rather take a chance on European insolvency than Bernanke.

It was truly pathetic… and yet another example of what passes for democracy today: One man who has never been elected is essentially given control of the money supply to do with it as he deems best in his sole discretion.

All in all, as usual, it’s going to come down to the taxpayers. The bureaucrats will go on enjoying their steak tartare and ignoring the huddled masses. The politicians will go on posturing over title. The central bankers will keep making interest free loans to their friends and destroying their currencies.  We get stuck with the fallout.

In the end, the governments will make it a matter of national security and patriotism, ensuring that we ‘do our duty to the nation’ by coughing up more of our livelihood. I stumbled across this WW2 propaganda video a few days ago in which Daffy Duck tells us all that it’s our patriotic duty to give as much as possible to the government.

Should we expect a new video soon suggesting that it’s our patriotic duty to buy Treasury bonds…? In what passes for democracy today, you can bet on it.


Until tomorrow,

Election November, 2010…It was Memorable… What has happened????? Admin/CapeCoral

In Business/Political Trends Worldwide, Constitution of The United States, Government, History, Money and Finances, Political, Political parties, Taxes on July 14, 2011 at 2:59 pm

November 2010, The election cycle that was planned to be the beginning of change in the right direction….Yea, the nation voted, the results were published, the songs were sung and accolades were issued.

6 months down the crooked road and the whole terrain has changed again.

Fear has become the by-word, even our President has instilled the worst fear into our folks, the loss of our Social Security benefits along with other things. The interview on CBS news was sickening to view, especially since the President knew in his heart that there was enough money to write the checks to cover SS needs.  I was at a small gathering this PM with some folks and gradually the topic of conversation turned to the debt crisis, this after exhausting commentary by all regarding the Casey Anthony case which is a whole another story..Some Folks seem to believe that the President has the right to do what he wants without Congressional approval, this train of thought is to me, rather alarming. Is this what has happened to a good portion of our society, a real dumbing down as to how this government really works, has the Liberal Press really gained such a foot hold in the turning of peoples minds, the losing of the teachings of how a Republic really works??? It was scary for me to listen to some of the comments.

The November electorate needs to stand fast, make the peoples word heard in those hallowed halls.

This nation cannot stand another rise in the Debt Limit. The repayment plans offered cannot even get a handle on the immense dollars and cents involved. The behind closed door negotiations (Where is the TRANSPARENCY) that are being used by a small number of persons is not what we bargained for. What happend to the Democratic cry of [pay as you go], was that not a part of their platform???

These words are no longer used, the words now are (Pass the Bill first and then you can Read It)…..How does that fit on your plate and can you really digest that statement without gagging!!!!

Why have we let ourselves become so easy to lead down a garden path with just words – “Hope and Change” Man O Man, where does this end????

America, wake up before we have nothing left here to hang onto and the “Friends” who led and have “shown” us the way are long gone and living the high life on our backs…

STOP   STOP   STOP  this progression. It will eat you alive!!!!!

God Bless America……….

One Nation Under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for ALL……..
