The Money System In a Nutshell: How the Rich get Richer and Why We Never Do

Wealth is forever. In case you’ve never thought about it, it’s true, once it’s created it’s forever. All you have to do is hold onto it. That’s something I realized a while back when I started analyzing how our society is set up, and it’s set up to make the rich and powerful more rich and powerful by using us and taking our share of the wealth we create for themselves.

It’s about money, that green stuff that strangely doesn’t turn out to be anything at all. It has no inherent value, you can’t eat it or wear it or use it for anything yet here we are, an enormous nation of people who get up every day and hump at jobs just to get their hands on more of that stuff they think is wealth.

The thing is, there is such a thing as real money but Federal Reserve Notes aren’t dollars, they aren’t based on anything. This was done on purpose too, it’s all part of the plan. Which is of course to rip us off for everything. They knew all they had to do was perpetrate the myth that Federal Reserve Notes are money and that they have value, even though they don’t. As long as nobody knows about it, then the plan is on.

The first step was to get everybody dancing to their tune, get them obsessed with the idea that it’s all about getting money. That was easy to do with the aid of Hollywood and TV sets. They presented the public with made up images of people living "the good life" and being all cool because they’ve got all the latest stuff. Soon everybody wanted the good life and to have the latest stuff, and the race was on.

People came off their farms and started taking every conceivable kind of job, giving up their lives and families and time and doing nothing but working. Working their lives away. Working to try to get their hands on ever more money because they now believed, after decades of consistent government/media brainwashing via the boob-tube in everybody’s living rooms, that nothing mattered more than getting rich. People wanted all the stuff that money can buy.

Soon the things in life that have real value, that money can’t touch with a ten foot pole like health, and love and family and friends, quality of life, free time, common sense, solidarity, community, education, self-empowerment, actual democracy and being self ruling, spirit and soul and the whole nine yards, all of that was devalued to zero. We went morally bankrupt a long time ago. But now being morally bankrupt is the in thing. It seems to work best for the criminal classes, the ones at the top and the ones at the bottom, there’s no real difference except the ones at the top are infinitely more dangerous and will never be punished for the crimes they perpetrate.

So now they had the whole country working, sweating away, laboring at every kind of job there is and that’s what they wanted. Because regardless of what they tell us in school, and regardless of what the financial whiz bangs drone on about, the bottom line is this: the only way to create wealth is through human labor. Period. End of story. No labor, no wealth. Forget about it.

Well, you may say, what about gold mines? What about all those natural resources? You can create wealth by snatching those up and selling them.

No Twinkles, you can’t, not without labor. Without lots and lots of labor to go dig those mines and mine that gold and shovel it into carts and process it and ship it and truck it and sell it, you ain’t got squat. Nothing happens unless somebody somewhere gets off their ass and does something. It is a physical impossibility that anything gets done in this world unless people get up and labor to accomplish it, whatever it is. But those natural resources are on the flip side of this concept of how to squeeze the life out of the world and everybody in it to make yourself king of the planet. More on that later.

So first, you invented play money and convinced everyone it’s the greatest thing in the world and made them want it. Then you used that worthless paper that you can print up in your monopolized private banking kingdom out of thin air since it’s based on nothing whatsoever, and offered to pay people with it to get up and get off their butts and work, labor, because only if they get up and labor will they create any wealth for you to steal.

Soon you’ve got the whole country digging and scratching for money, laboring every day for the best part of the day, year after year after year. And at the end of the week or the month when it’s payday, you grudgingly write out a check to pay them with fake money that has no value. And you make sure to calculate how much that labor is actually worth and you make sure to only give them a tiny percentage of that value back in pay. You want to keep them beneath you, that’s the whole idea, so you tell them their labor isn’t worth much and you pocket most of it for yourself. Free wealth for you, too bad for them.

But they don’t complain, and unions have been depicted as evil in the press so people don’t feel comfortable getting together to fight you for their fair share. And if unions do spring up you see to it they get rubbed out and so you keep total control over the workers and they can’t say or do anything or they’ll get fired. You win again, they lose again. Just the way you like it.

So you pay them as little as you can get away with and buy off the government so they won’t try to step in and make you be fair and share the wealth the workers create. So even though the money is fake it will all work because everything has been converted over to this system of trade using the fake money as if it was actually money so as long as people believe it’s money and it has value, everything will proceed according to plan. And we do believe it, they believe it all over the world. And it’s that belief alone, and nothing else, that keeps everyone getting up and going to work to get more of something that has no value, that can’t buy gold, and that the value of can be reduced to zero in the course of an hour any time the powers that be decide they want to do it.

Now come the natural resources because they are free for the taking. And there are tons of them, all over the world, all different kinds of them. You can mine them just by getting them out of the ground and turning around and selling them to make a ton of money. So you get those laborers out there and tell them to start digging and voila! Wealth is being created for you, all for you, without you having to lift a finger. The laborers will do all of the work and all you have to do is pay them some fake money that you also fully intend to get back from them pretty soon.

How? By becoming the market too, by being the monopoly of stores and businesses that provide all the goods to the very same laborers who will spend that money. And they will spend it and you’ll get it all back again and they who have done all the work and created your little empire for you will have nothing to show for all their years of hard work. They’ll be broke and you’ll be rich.

To make sure that the laboring class can’t do what the rich twits are doing, they bought the government in order to make it illegal for anyone but them to do this scam; and they created and armed the police saying, "These guys are here to protect the citizens". But only they are citizens in their minds, and the police are there to protect them from us, the rabble. In fact we’re all enemies of the state the second we disagree with a thing they say. Just thought you should know that. So no, the cops are not there for your benefit. They work for the rich twits to keep us in line. That might explain a few things you see going on at protests or in jails and prisons all over the country. It starts making sense when you look at it right.

Next they made the laws that say that you and I can’t just start some kind of business for ourselves and opt out of their little game, like gambling or manufacturing in our own homes, or banking and printing fake money for ourselves to use and trade. That would be competition for them and they won’t stand for it. So it’s only legal for them to do anything that lets people get rich and for everyone else it’s not legal.

The whole system is devised to cheat the people out of everything, starting with their labor, the only way that wealth can be created. The trick was only to get people to get up and do that labor, and to not pay them with actual money, not with actual gold or silver because those hold their value and people would be able to put that real wealth aside, save it up or even get together to start something of their own and you can’t have that. That would give the working class actual power and then they could refuse to comply with your way of doing things. They would be able to say things like, "Take this job and shove it, jerk! I don’t need your money, I have plenty of my own, so bite me. I don’t have to put up with this".

That would never do. You need to be able to pull the plug on the entire money system when the moment is right, and in the meantime you need to be able to change the value of that fake money so that it keeps taking more and more of it to buy the goods they need to survive. You must pay them less and less, let foreigners take their jobs for cheaper wages, and jack up the prices for everything they need to survive. They must be kept hungry and struggling and in fear of losing their jobs so that you can work them to death and they won’t dare complain.

So if you’ve ever wondered why the government does nothing to stop the inpouring of illegal workers, now you know why. Remember, they are the government. They’ll never have to do anything to make it harder on themselves, they’ll always make it harder on you and profit from it. The media keeps us all fighting over the illegal aliens situation on purpose because that way we stay focused on a problem they created to help themselves instead of figuring out what they’re pulling and hunting them down and kicking their asses.

This is how they do us all the time. You’d really be surprised to find out how little of what they tell us is the truth. It’s all a scam designed to make them richer and more powerful by taking what is rightfully ours whether we like it or not. Like the way they keep telling us we are free and this is a democracy but it isn’t and it never was. But just like we believe the money is real, we believe the democracy is real, so we keep on playing the game, just the way they like it.

We are watching now as they keep devaluing our dollar, our fake money which already has no value, and it’s forcing everyone to spend more and more of something that is harder and harder to get enough of because they’re also lowering our wages, ending our benefits, and are no longer paying the parts of our salaries they used to have to pay. They tell us they can’t afford it when the fact is they can. But they’d rather strip us of wealth because we’re starting to catch on, so they need us hungrier than ever and in abject fear of not finding work to feed our families.

So the people are creating all of the wealth with their labor, and are being paid with your fake money which they then turn around and give back to you in order to survive so in the end you get the work for free and they get zip except barely enough to stay alive and come back every day to keep working to make more wealth for you to steal, while their own lives go down the toilet and become ever more unsatisfying and hopeless and they have to go into endless debt just to keep a roof over their heads. And you and your class get richer every step of the way. It’s so brilliant it almost hurts.

And that’s what they’ve done. They’ve created a huge money vacuum that sucks all of the wealth we create out of our pockets and puts it into their pockets. But wait you say, if that money has no value then how can they be rich even if they get all of it?

Well that’s the really sneaky and ugly part of this sinister system. You see, the money has no value but the labor created real value, it does create real wealth. So the wealth is real but it’s just not in any form that can make anyone secure or stable or rich. So the guys behind all this crap created the financial market and money games that almost none of us can relate to. And they trade that fake money for other money that does have value and they buy gold with it, and other things and it’s at that point that they transmute the wealth our labor creates into monetary forever- wealth. The wealth doesn’t come into three dimensional being until after they pull it out of our economy. When they’ve made their deals in the market, they con others into taking the worthless money off their hands and trading them for money that does have value, and then they take that value and pocket it and we never see it again.

Which was what brought this entry on in the first place, wondering where all of the wealth we’ve created has gone? This amounts to a hell of a lot of wealth. All of the productivity which we have increased and doubled and tripled again and again and which should have resulted in much shorter work days and shorter work weeks and more time off and better benefits and greater wealth for us all hasn’t been turned into any of that.

All of that exponentially increased wealth has been hijacked into their own pockets with stories of how they can’t afford to pay us a fair wage or cover the health benefits anymore as they buy out all of the smaller companies hoping to turn the whole country into a place that buys everything from only them and their five whole brands that supply us with everything, and all from China too. They’ve funneled literally trillions of dollars worth of our combined hard work and labor into their own pockets and totally out of our country and we’re seeing it now in bankrupt states and counties, crumbling infrastructure, and the total lack of concern over the increasing shabbiness of our country and the ever shrinking quality of life so many of us now face. They’ve simply taken it all and gone to Dubai to live like royalty.

What’s next? The banks are ’failing’ now we are told, they have no actual fake money to bring out if we all showed up and wanted to withdraw our fake money and somehow that means they are failing. They should fail, they deserve to, then maybe some of us can get real banks going. But they can’t have that.

So what happens? The government, who is nothing more than the lapdog of these goons, says to us, we need to ’bail out" the banks and they tell the Federal Reserve to go ahead and print up more hundreds of billions of fake money to charge us interest on and give it to the banks, so that they can loan it out. When they loan it out they get even more free wealth in the form of fees and interest, one of their most favorite scams, a way to get more of our money for nothing and keep getting richer than God.

So we are being taken every step of the way and the ones taking us are the ones funneling all the wealth to themselves screwing everyone they deal with every moment of the day.

They have stuck foreign countries with our worthless bills so they can get real wealth in other places and buy up the gold and silver and platinum and so forth and the other countries, afraid of our military and insane leadership who can’t wait to nuke anything that moves, put up with it. There’s your free trade right there. It’s all a big fat lie and a scam.

So the whole house of cards is a reality. All these other countries have literally bought trillions of our valueless dollars in "investments" and are sitting on it hoping they can sell it back to us, but we won’t buy it back because we’re all broke and we never intended to anyway. Nobody has any money here and were running the whole country on credit, which costs us honkin interest that all gets paid to the Federal Reserve who charges that interest on something they print up out of thin air that has no value.

Our whole system is a ghost, it doesn’t exist, it’s like the Emperor’s new clothes. If people ever stood still long enough to soak that in, they’d be righteously pissed off and this would change and things might be able to be fixed and we could get rid of the criminals feeding off of us. But, people are small minded and greedy and all they care about is getting more worthless money because they think it makes them cool or something and they don’t care who they screw to get some of it. Or they are so desperate and poor that they have no choice but to keep spinning inside their hamster wheels to put some lousy genetically tampered with food on the table to stay alive a little while longer, and keep paying those high interest rates and inflated prices and getting sicker and more downtrodden all the while. And we can’t explain this to the public because all they care about is shopping and they don’t believe anything unless they hear it on the news, which is all owned by the same people doing all this stuff to us and they’ll never admit to any of it. So there you go.

And the bitch of it is that we have no respect for money at all. We don’t save it, we spend it as fast as we can get it and we don’t care at all that they rip us off with super inflated prices or with crappy products that only last a couple of months and then we have to go get a new one. All good for them but not for us, if we had any sense.

If we had any sense we’d understand the rules of wealth and the first rule is, wealth is power, and the second rule is, in order to be wealthy you can’t spend your money. It has to be left somewhere, untouched, to grow into a bunch of money.

People used to understand that and so they demanded that when they spent money on something they got their full money’s worth. And the fact is that real wealth is forever. As long as you don’t touch it, it’s not going anywhere. Bars of gold will never lose their value, they will not rot, they will not evaporate, they are forever. Wealth is forever. So when we spend our wealth, such as it is, we can only be getting a fair price if what we buy has equal value, it has to be forever or we are losing. Vacuum cleaners used to be made out of solid steel and they lasted forever. You couldn’t wear them out. TV sets and appliances all came with lifetime warranties and free service because people wouldn’t settle for anything less, why would they? It would be stupid to pay 100% full price in forever wealth in exchange for something that was only worth 10% and wouldn’t work longer than a year or two, much less 30 days like most warranties are now.

Think about it. Do you think they would take your money if it was only good for 30 days and then it would evaporate into thin air? If when you went to buy a refrigerator you told them, "Here is nine hundred dollars, but it’s only good for the length of the warranty on this refrigerator, which is 90 days. After that whatever account you’ve got this money in, it won’t be there any more. It won’t be good anymore". Do you think they’d stand for that? Hell no. But it’s okay that they do it to you, you just don’t get to do it to them. You’re supposed to take it from them because it’s good for them when you have to keep coming back to buy new refrigerators and cell phones and CD players to replace the crappy ones you bought six months ago. They do that on purpose and it’s not fair. We are so stupid we don’t even care when they rip us off like this, it just doesn’t matter to us, all we want is more stuff. And even that is something they put into our heads so we’d do exactly this. And it’s worked out beyond their wildest dreams.

Now that they’ve funneled all of the wealth of the centuries out of the country, and turned it into real wealth that they have pulled out of the world economies and are sitting on it, keeping it stuffed away quietly somewhere, all of a sudden, there is a money shortage. The real money out there that is based on gold and silver and has actual value, can’t be printed up because that money is based on having physical assets to value it on. The physical assets have been bought up, and that’s all the gold and silver sitting in their private vaults. They’ve taken all of the wealth they could get their hands on, which is almost all of it in the whole wide world and what little is left is just enough to keep us stirring the pot, and keep us going to work so we don’t notice that they’ve robbed the country of everything. And soon they’ll leave, they’ll pull out and our system will collapse because the game will be over and we will suffer and die and eat shit and they will be giving each other high fives and buying their 17th mansion and 200 foot yacht. That’s how they do it.

But that’s not the end of the game because there is still more labor to tap and that means there is more wealth being created to steal and the next phase will be different but it will all be the same thing. A huge rip off. And the public never catches on so it lets them keep playing this scam on the whole world over and over and they have over the centuries, collected massive amounts of the wealth that is ours, and the goal is simple. They’ve said so themselves. They want to own the world. And it looks like they’re going to.

The wars and all that? It’s all a facade. The movies, the music, the candidates races, Fox news, it’s all there to distract us. They need to keep us distracted so they can keep ripping us off. That’s all anything is about, think about it. Nobody cares about anything unless there is money involved. It’s the only thing that matters to them, they are retards and psychopaths and we are a human resource to mine and use to get rich and throw away when we’re all used up. That’s why they hate to see our tax dollars going to pay for anything we need like welfare or medical care or education, they don’t care about any of that, not for us. We’re to be used not taken care of, we have no value if we can’t labor. So the elderly and the young and the injured and the sick, their philosophy is "fuck ’em". And the politicians tell you that those people suck the system dry and what a joke it is. They barely phase the system, they cost us nothing compared with the reality that those people take everything we have and now they want even that little bit too. They really want it all for themselves.

And that’s how the money system works. That’s the scam of forever that steals everything from us, that we never catch on to, that keeps us from gaining any power, enough to fight them back and that’s why there are bloody revolutions. People eventually do get sick of it, they do figure it out, usually when millions of people are starving and poor and sick, but they do eventually get the clue. Then they rise up and squish every elite they can get their hands on and we all start over.

That’s planet earth. You’d think we could come up with a better game plan than that but no, I guess not. Not when it’s all about some small handful of freaks and lying greed bag psychopaths who don’t give a shit about anyone but themselves and their own money class of assholes and liars and twits who actually believe they are better than we are. That’s our retarded world.

Closing Thoughts

That’s all you really need to know about our money system. In fact you probably know more about it now than a lot of so called experts. You don’t need to know formulas or any of the incomprehensible nonsense in financial books, none of that matters, it’s all made up anyway. All that matters is that when you peel away the nonsense this is what you’ll see because that’s what’s really there and anyone, anyone at all can understand it. It’s a big fat rip off. It’s something everyone should know, and now you do.

What you decide to do about it is up to you, but I’ll offer this for your consideration. No one anywhere is ever obligated to let crooks, thieves or criminals have their way with our lives. Why should we? We aren’t lesser beings! No one has to go along with that because it just doesn’t make sense. It’s stupid to even suggest it. And any law that says we have to let rich guys rip us off is bull, nobody with any self respect would lay down for that for one second.

And by the way, there is no shame in bankruptcy, that’s just another lie they’ve sold you to make you feel bad about not wanting to pay them more than you want to take care of yourself and your family. Taking care of yourself and your family and your needs should always come first. They want you to feel you’re not worth anything unless you give them all of your money. Do you see how they’ve gotten into our heads? It’s just stupid. We don’t have to care whether crooks get paid, why should we? We must always see to our needs first and foremost and never feel an ounce of guilt about it, that’s just common sense.

That’s what they do. They don’t care who they hurt or kill or screw or destroy in the name of getting more money for themselves. It’s a game to them, and they never lose, we always pay for their losses. The game is rigged and they always win and if you don’t know that they’ll take you for everything you’ve got. People actually kill themselves over bills piling up, it’s a horrible situation. If that’s happening to you, set yourself free. Screw them, they aren’t worth your life or anyone else’s life. File bankruptcy. The whole credit thing is a scam so screw that too. Don’t play along, don’t empower them. Nothing about them is worth you suffering and especially not dying over. They aren’t worth the crud on the bottom of your shoes.

No one should ever be more concerned about them than they are about you and in case you haven’t figured it out by now, they don’t care about you at all. And by the way, they file bankruptcy all the time. That’s how crooked and rotten this whole scam is. There is no shame in it, never forget that.

See the movie "Maxed Out" on the front page at pbsBlog.com for a closer look at the scam being perpetrated on the good people of this country. Being informed is being prepared and you won’t be prone to falling for their lies and schemes anymore. The quality of your life is up to you. You get to protect yourself from being destroyed by voracious capitalist bastards, it’s your basic human right to protect your interests and yourself, and don’t ever let anyone tell you any different. That is the biggest lie of all and the saddest thing is how many Americans have come to believe it. It’s an outrage. Stand up and refuse to cooperate. That’s where change begins. They get stopped when we stop them by not cooperating. How can that be wrong? It can’t be.

The hypocrisy has to end. There cannot be two different sets of rules, rules for the priveleged criminals and rules for everybody else. That’s not a democracy it’s a sham.

The rules have to be the same for everyone, no special priveleges, no bail outs for banks and giant corporations, and equal access to the major media for all. That’s fair, not what we have now. We don’t have to stand for this crap.

These people are not our superiors. They are not better than we are, they are just people and shitty people at that. They are liars and brainwashers who have the money to perpetrate gigantic head games on all of us, and keep those of us who see it from having equal access to the public airwaves to expose them. The game is rigged and that is not okay.

We don’t owe them anything, why do we think so? Because they’re rich? So what? They ripped it all off! Cash has nothing to do with being a decent person, they’re not related. And not having cash does not make anyone a lesser being. It’s an outrageous sick idea, stop buying into it.

We are not anybody’s property. We are not here to obey. We are here to call our own shots and have it our way, not their way because their way sucks and they know it.

If we truly want to be free, then we have to be free of them, and they won’t pass any laws to make that easy. Refusing to comply with bogus criminal laws and disrespectful demands on us will send the message. That will get them scared enough to stop the rape and pillage. So tell people what’s really going on and help spread the word that we are equal beings who don’t have to take getting treated this way. Why should we? It’s our call to make and if we don’t want to be slaves for the rich then we better start thinking and acting like we’re autonomous, independent people who demand decency from government, and ethics, and fair treatment, justice and transparency.

It all starts here, at the abolition of the fake dollar and a return to the gold standard so that our wealth is real wealth that can’t be jerked around. That’s where security starts in a world that’s got a price tag on everything. It’s all about self respect and realizing their rules are not God’s laws. They’re just stuff made up by people no different than us who are hogging the show and taking advantage of us all. We don’t have to obey any of their rules or their dumb laws if they’re stupid, insulting outrageous grabs at what is not theirs to take. We don’t owe anybody that!

So do what you have to do, what you believe is right, and always take care of your own interests first and foremost. We don’t owe anyone our lives or happiness. We don’t have to give up justice or ethics just because they want it that way. And don’t ever believe you aren’t more important than they are, you are! In your life you are the most important person and it’s what you want that counts most. What they want is irrelevant. It’s only if they can get you to believe otherwise that they can win. It only happens if we give it to them.

Do you want to give it to them? Hell no! Lets get the criminal rich and the corporation twits out of our government! We need regulations placed on all of these people because they’re criminals! They’ve proven it time and again. They can’t be trusted.

This country and it’s laws and the whole dang economy is ours to take back anytime we wake up and just refuse to do what they want. And that’s something we can all do. I say, let’s do it.

The Money System In a Nutshell: How the Rich get Richer and Why We Never Do
Tuesday June 10 - 20:34 - Posted by John Hanks - 94bed4a345464e55...

I agree on the cycle. But, take care of your own interests? The pursuit of gold, power, virtue, etc. is the sure way to make your life meaningless. Whether you swim in a pool or the bathtub, it is the same. Learn to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted. Learn the power of ordinary everyday wisdom. Spot the racketeers and rackets and expose them casually.

I strongly recommend the 5-part video animation series talking about how money works, Money as Debt ( www.moneyasdebt.net ), narrated by Bob Bossin.

All Five are very good explanations and not too hard to understand. Part One is here:
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cy-f...

Money gets "conjured into existence" as this first video describes modern banking from its origins in money-lending. All five episodes combined are worthy of the hour or so they need to be seen. If you don’t learn what’s going on with our money, you will likely be victimized.

Money vs. God
The Bible does explain love of God as diametrically opposite of the love of money. But Jesus discusses money at least 400 times in the New Testament, so money is a primary issue. We need to use money, save money, and avoid usury—the charging of interest. The latter would defeat the entire modern money system. However, charging interest on gold—which is an alternative to the modern fiat system we have—would be wrong. Gold and more environmentally friendly silver are stores of value.

Now as for distinguishing wealth vs. income, people need to read the book Millionaire Next Door. A little dated, the book builds a profile between high income earners and wealth accumulation—the two aren’t the same but are in fact opposites. Distinguishing between the need to make income and build wealth is vital in escaping the rat race. So is frugality, the opposite of high consumption behavior exercised by most high wage earners.

Don’t let the elite’s system defeat you! The ultra-rich play by different rules, but money has objective realities we need to master in order to live in this world. Now if you join a Buddhist monastery, then you can avoid money issues, otherwise you will need to know how to use, and not over-consume and get caught in a debt trap. Good luck.

Bankruptcy is an explicit right—it was put in as an alternative to debt servitude which the British enforced. Your credit will be shot, but it might be the only way to get a new chance if things are bad.

The Money System In a Nutshell: How the Rich get Richer and Why We Never Do
Sunday June 15 - 05:20 - Posted by 70b7d7eaf8673409...

I thought you’d like to check out the political allegory of mine that I recently found a literary agent for. It’s a story set in the context of a teacher discussing with his class all of the evidence that the Bush administration is as corrupt as it is incompetent; and how to rectify the Constitutional crisis we face. It’s couched in a discussion about the urgent need to stop abusing Mother Nature. I wrote in 3 dozen celebrities to play the students, so it’s very funny despite how infuriating it is. You can read it at www.stoplittering.com/theswi... and, yes, StopLittering.com is my site.
And enjoy this poem of mine…

If Jesus Were Alive Today

If Jesus were alive today,
He’d surely feel despair,
Amidst a world of plenty,
And a bounty that’s not shared.

If Jesus were alive today,
He wouldn’t understand,
The system of oppression,
And how so few give a damn.

If Jesus were alive today,
He’d certainly be distraught,
Because the animals of Earth,
Are not treated as they ought.

If Jesus were alive today,
His eyes would have some tears,
And based on all the evidence,
I’d say he was sincere.

If Jesus were alive today,
He’d have to jump and shout,
To wake us from our slumber:
"THE FUTURE IS IN DOUBT!!"

If Jesus were alive today,
You know he’d try in vain,
To save us from each other...
(No doubt he’d go insane.)

If Jesus were alive today,
I expect we’d be rebuked;
It is likely he’d remark:
"Knock it off before I puke."

If Jesus were alive today,
No way he’d vote for Bush;
To those who say he should,
He’d say,"Kiss my tush!"

If Jesus were alive today,
With Bushies he’d be pissed:
"Ignorance is no defence!
Otherwise, get yourself a psychiatrist."

If Jesus were alive today,
He’d put John Kerry in his place,
As the world’s lamest candidate:
"Why’d they even let that Jackass race?!"

If Jesus were alive today,
Boy, would Congress get a smack,
For practically everything they’ve done,
Especially for trusting Jr. with Iraq.

If Jesus were alive today,
He’d say the media was to blame:
"Don’t think I haven’t noticed,
That you people have no shame."

If Jesus were alive today,
The Democrats he would scorn,
For keeping out Wes Clark:
"Was it yesterday these fools were born?!"

If Jesus were alive today,
His sense of humor would be great.
Too wry, perhaps, for some,
But that’s how he’d get laid.

If Jesus were alive today,
He’d be branded as a cynic,
Because no one wants to hear,
If it’s raining at their picnic.

If Jesus were alive today,
He’d force us all to see,
That hope and love are the answer,
To who we’re supposed to be.




The Money System In a Nutshell: How the Rich get Richer and Why We Never Do
Wednesday September 17 - 05:55 - Posted by 2c0151c7db65e77a...

Among trillions of stars in the Universe, if God really was *arbitrary* to the point of breaking his own rules... that is, of being everywhere every time... and LIMITED ITSELF by manifesting beyond immutable truly universal laws... and then God actually really did say something to the peoples of planet earth... it had to be : "Just keep me out of it, please" ....

But contrary to many i believe that is impossible to God to manifest anything "particular" because what is Infinite and Absolute Conscious of the whole, must be Absolutely Unconscious of anything particular and limiting. God doesn’t have a personality... God can be arbitrary... people can. But people are very limited and imperfect, that is, highly mutable which is the 180º opposite from God, that never did, it does not, and it never will, CHANGE. period.

God doesn’t emit opinions or change mood. But Evil, POWER and MONEY LOVERS, men, have always tryed making us believe IT does, and that *they* are God intermediary, and that *they* have instructions!!..

If God needs intermediarys how came is He All Powerful and All Knowing ??

God doesn’t need intermediarys, and is infinitely wiser, that is why it gave *mankind* a spark of itself... called CONSCIENCE... the direct path to communicate with *Him* trough the SUBJECTIVE UNIVERSE not the OBJECTIVE( the CONCIOUS mind always catch that is cold or warm, not 10º C or 30ºC.. as example)...

And CONSCIENCE is what anyone must leave out, when POWER and MONEY LOVING and or selling their souls to mass cults or groups... in search of *personality* appeasement or group recognition.

But funny thing is as the concept of Money derives into the concept of power and Value... and then the Ultimate Value( God) discussions. So Money is the ENFORCEMENT of something designating VALUE.. and ULTIMATELY, MONEY IS GOD !?

A very good exposition of the concept of Money is

http://www.appropriate-economics.or...

And IMHO, for a sane concept of money, it must incorporate intrinsically that it can’t be permanent, because is a circulating accounting memorandum, that is, MONEY IS A PROMISE TO PAY.

Money should have REDEMPTION... that is, when the PROMISE IS FULFILLED it must CEASE TO EXIST.... like the bank checks, when the recipient of your checks deposit them, they cease to exist. And bank checks are also PROMISES TO PAY... and BANK CHECKS are more REAL MONEY than any *Fiat Currency*. But for a better understanding read the PDF.

Yes, TONS of personal BANK CHECKS could circulate as *Currency*, without ever being deposited, that they could be good for any and all commercial transactions. That is why all over the world, bank check laws are so awkward, and why banks try to format checks in a way that they must be deposited before any currency redemption is available, in many cases a full week before the currency is available... like happened in my country... forcing the check holders to deposit then ASAP.

As i posted in this forum before, IMHO, Money should be ISSUED BY THE CONSUMERS, because by accounting principles and the logic of commercial transactions, it MUST BE A BUYER WHOM ISSUES MONEY... a promise to pay later, or redemption, of the NOTES that he delivers to the seller.

Changing...

"" People used to understand that and so they demanded that when they spent money on something they got their full money’s worth. And the fact is that real wealth is forever. ""

But it can change indefinitely from value, while the same piece of something remains the same its value may not... IF a Ford T was made of *adamantium*, the fictioned indestructible and hardest metal on the planet( never wears out a nanometer) would you pay for it the price of a Ferrary or would you prefer the Ferrary and bid the Ford T much much less ?... the same when the actual Ferrari is completely obsolete. Would your Gran Gran sons pay $1million for a Ferrary F60 in 100 years or would they prefer other... and the Ferrary loses value ?

"" Think about it. Do you think they would take your money if it was only good for 30 days and then it would evaporate into thin air? If when you went to buy a refrigerator you told them, "Here is nine hundred dollars, but it’s only good for the length of the warranty on this refrigerator, which is 90 days. After that whatever account you’ve got this money in, it won’t be there any more. It won’t be good anymore". ""

But money should company the real value of any item... called it a merchandise or a property.. its a promise to pay, and if by market the value of that merchandise or property is null, is the logic that the money that originally served to purchase it must cease to be... confusing ?... not really!

OTHERWISE IS INFLATION MONEY( MORE MONEY THEN REAL ITEMS).. ALWAYS.. ALWAYS LOSING VALUE WITH TIME, EVEN IF A GOLD STANDARD...

IMHO, Money should be issue by the buyers, meaning ALL, ALL the people not prevented otherwise... a STATE supervised and policed operation, the real functions of the STATE not wise in private hands, that is arbitration, policement and justice...

And Money should be made of plastic(like in Australia) and with a smartcard chip inside detailing among other things, its authenticity( not counterfeit like the FED *Fiat Notes*) its VALIDITY TIME ( 1,2,3... years or more, from the issuing date)... exactly like fixed value personal checks of 5,10,20... or other denominations...

People should pay a FIXED TAX( not income tax) for mostly this STATE JOB... and should present for its issuance an INSURANCE, like so many other insurances and or the same amount of other OUT OF VALIDITY TIME notes...

That is Money is always coming to be and being redempted... and the GOLDEN RULE is, that every piece of NOTE that cames to life, issued by any citizen according to the rules( which the STATE must PROTECT, its his job) must be DESTROYED...

The all planet may be forever.. as example... but it may happen that there isn’t any buyer for it, so it has no value, in terms of money, because it has no market.

Ppl please read the PDF for better understanding.

The whole Democratic Party establishment of pushing benefits onto small businesses only increases this. Instead of universal health care we are forced to stay in jobs to keep our benefits or suffer comparative to the population if we choose to be mavericks. This decreases entrepreneurship spirit among the less wealthy and hurts small business the most.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
