MONEY: inflation is a mandatory element

Peterson’s Law of Inflation
by William H. Peterson

***Begin Quote***

But still, would governments consciously inflate against their own citizens? The thought was too dismal, the theory too disconcerting. We never got to check out the connection, if any, between inflation and public debts, for we left the Museum of Moneys of the World – that monetary graveyard – for the purer air and traffic of New York’s Sixth Avenue and fished in our pockets for a fifteen cent subway token to take a ride that had cost a nickel not so long ago.*

*Current 2007 price of New York City subway ride is $2.

This article was originally published in National Review, December 19, 1959.

I’d suggest that inflation is a mandatory element of any financial plan.

INTERESTING: Taxes enslave everyone now

Martin Luther King, Jr.
“I Have a Dream”
delivered 28 August 1963,
at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C.

When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the “unalienable Rights” of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Are we there yet? Not even close. I’d argue we are actually further away. Taxes enslave everyone now!

TECH SERVICE: CollectiveX’s Groupsites (RECOMMENDED)

CollectiveX’s Groupsites

***Begin Quote***

What are Groupsites?

Groupsites make it easy for groups to share, communicate and network. They combine the best
features of:

– Discussion forums
– Email lists
– Calendars
– Social networks

Groupsites are powered by CollectiveX; are FREE to setup; and can be public, semi-public or private.

Interesting concept. You’re own social network. I’d suggest that it has a fragment of the solution. Jibber Jobber has a part. Yahoo Groups has a part. LinkedIn has a part.

Hmmm! Maybe I’ll create something for my fellow Turkeys, or just me?

INTERESTING: no commute, no HQ, and no office

The Future of the Workplace: No Office, Headquarters in Cyberspace
Some Companies Don’t Care Where Workers Are as Long as They Get the Job Done

Imagine a work world with no commute, no corporate headquarters and perhaps not even an office in the physical world at all.

For Bob Flavin, a computer scientist at IBM; Janet Hoffman, an executive at a management consulting firm; and Joseph Jaffe, a marketing entrepreneur, the future is already here.

Yeah, and kiss your personal time good bye.

Been there and done that. If you are not feeling that your on Robinson Crusoe’s island, then you’re at the Battle of <insert favorite movie battle like Alamo, Battan, or Pork Chop Hill> alone without help, and held accountable to move mountains with your magic wand. Having done “global”, you can kiss the clock good bye. Having a berry, you can’t even go to the head (i.e., loo or LV or “officer’s club”) with out interruption. (I hear people doing email in the stalls or answer calls. Yuck!)

Maybe I can start the virtual union hall! ;-)

(Always thought the AFL CIO aimed at the wrong target demographic. I’d organize the IT workers. Not only could they pay more in dues, they have the enterprises by the throat in their data is their life blood.)

RANT: 14 Reasons to Deport Illegal Aliens


Interesting, but how much are spent on “legal” freeloaders?

I’d suggest we dump all the “welfare” for “illegal” aliens, and right along with it, the “welfare” for all the freeloaders, including aliens, citizens, corporations, politicians, bureaucrats, “celebrities”, the media, and all those that “pig at the trough” by “servicing” all the gooferment programs.

We can while we’re at it end the phony War on Drugs, that doesn’t do anything about “drugs”.

Next, we bring home all the troops from all over the globe and become a porcupine like Switzerland.

Finally, nuke the Federal Reserve and let the dollar be backed by something other than politician’s promises!

And, life would get a whole lot better and cheaper.

Then, “legal” and “illegal” will have lost all meaning.

And there is a presidential candidate who’ll do most of this — Ron Paul.

See his site.

Subject: 14 Reasons to Deport Illegal Aliens


Hope these 14 reasons are forwarded over and over again until they are read by the majority of Americans. Then they will have something to yell at their U.S. Congress members about. Our elected officials must open their ears and listen to us, or vote them out and get in those who are willing to stop the ‘downfall of the ‘AMERICA’ which we loved!!!:

1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year.

2. $2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.

3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens.

4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English!

5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.

6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.

7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.

8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.

9. $200 Billion Dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.

10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that’s two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the United States.

11. During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our Southern Border also, as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from Terrorist Countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroine and marijuana, crossed into the U. S. from the Southern border. Homeland Security Report:

12. The National Policy Institute, “estimated that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.”

13. In 2006 illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin.

14. “The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One Million Sex Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States “.

So using the LOWEST estimates, the annual cost OF ILLEGAL ALIENS is $338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!

So if deporting them costs between $206 and $230 BILLION DOLLARS, start getting rid of em’. We’ll be
ahead after the 1st year!!!

Please pass this on. Americans need to wake up!
