JOBSEARCH: Turkeys must plan for “retirement” at 50!

http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-retirement24-2009may24,0,885521.story

Early retirement claims increase dramatically

Instead of working longer as the economy worsens, more Americans are calling it quits before age 66. The ramifications could be profound for the retirees, families, government and social institutions.

*** begin quote ***

Once they lose their jobs, older workers have a harder time finding new ones. On average, it takes laid-off workers 55 and older nearly a month longer than their younger counterparts to find new employment, and the gulf has been growing recently, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

*** end quote ***

I’m much more skeptical than the BLS.

For turkeys (i.e., fat old white guys who had high paying jobs), they must plan, that when they lose their current job (as they surely will), for the contingency that thewill be unable to find another.

Ever!

Not one at a lesser pay. Not one that is “yuckier”. Not one that is “elsewhere”.

No, they may never find another one at all.

That has terrible ramifications.

That means at age 50 or later, what ever you have is all that you will ever get. That means at 50, you may never have health insurance again. That means at 50, you will begin to draw against your “pot of gold” (i.e., your total savings and investments).

You may have to be the Greeter at WalMart to permit yourself the luxury of dining on the expensive dog food.

You may, in fact, be on welfare and / or food stamps in your not-so “Golden Years”.

You may be “medically bankrupt” if you get sick without insurance.

Sacred yet. You should be.

Immediately, turkeys using my not-patented not-copyrighted formula for “job replacement interval” —

{For those, who aren’t aficionados of the Big Turkey’s methodology for calculating “job replacement interval”. Using my patented and copyrighted methodology, you can easily determine how many months YOU will need to find a new job. That is a function of: Annual Salary; the likelihood of a layoff in your company, industry, or skill set; the ease of finding another job in their skill set; their age; and the economy.}

— I’m adjusting the age penalty formula from (Less than 40 is 1; 41 to 49 is 2; 50 to 57 is 3; 57 and up is 4) to (Less than 40 is 1; 41 to 45 is 2; 45-50 = 4, 51-55=8, 51-55=16, 56-60=32, and 61 is 64).

Yes, after 56, I don’t think you can get another job again ever.

My formula may be wrong, but it should serve as a wake up call.

Plan as if there was no job to work at tomorrow. There may well not be.

MONEY: LIBERTY DOLLAR NEWS

Dear Usual Suspects:

I’m a past fan of the Liberty Dollar until I got a good look at the extra cost of mark up for minting the coins. (Other bullion coins WERE cheaper. Today, due to demand, the markups are all significant! Low markups are essential in any bullion purchase.)

That’s not the issue today.

The Gooferment is attacking any form of alternative “money”. See they can’t afford to have anyone puncture their “balloon of illusion”. People might actually begin to “pay attention to the man behind the curtain”! If they begin to ask what is a “dollar”, then their whole house of cards since Roosevelt took us off the gold standard will come tumbling down. I’ve ranted at you and the world about the German WW1 hyperinflation, the Argentina inflation, the Carter stagflation, and the latest hyper inflation in Zimbabwe.

But that can’t happen here. Can it?

This is an interesting read of how far the powers in the District of Corruption will go to prevent anyone from pulling back the curtain on their “monetary paper monopoly”! See if the sheeple start to ask embarrassing questions, then the game is up. You’ll begin to ask questions. Embarrassing questions! And, they don’t have the answers.

What is your “dollar” really?

The politicians and bureaucrats will make up all sorts of “interesting” “barbara streisand” to take your eye off the fact that its just a green piece of paper. Worthless, unless you can find some fool to take it. The problem is now that the Chinese and the Arabs are growing reluctant to accept these at “face value”. What ever that is!

Time to smell the “barbara streisand” at the Federal Reserve Bank. (Which ain’t “federal”; “reserves” nothing; ain’t a “bank”!) Ron Paul has a bill that would audit this PRIVATE banking monopoly. (I thought monopolies were always bad? Only the gooferment can create a monopoly. Cause they will kill you if you don’t play along.)

(Adjusting my tin foil hat, it’s interesting to me that we invaded Iraq the second time with the intention of “regime change” shortly after Sadam had the impertinence to suggest that oil be priced and sold for gold. Now, was that just coincidence.)

Please read this with an open mind. You might be surprised.

fjohn
hopefully your favorite “tin foil” hat

Subject: 75,000 T-Dollars! & FBI Dirty Tricks

LIBERTY DOLLAR NEWS:
May 2009 Vol. 11 No. 05

Welcome Liberty Dollar Supporters!

1. FBI Dirty Tricks & Target Letters
2. Tea Party Dollar… Going… Going… Soon to be Gone!

1. FBI Dirty Tricks & Target Letters

In case you missed the last Newsletter that was mistitled – the Liberty Dollar is officially under “criminal investigation.” Have you ever heard the phrase, “Anything you say can and WILL be used against you?” Please be informed that if you have any Liberty Dollars you are NOT in any danger of going to jail but you may be contacted by an FBI agent who may take your comments out of context and be used against you and/or the Liberty Dollar. I know it is hard to imagine that our very own government might misrepresent the facts, but if you think that is not possible, just read the Affidavit (begins on page 9) submitted by Special Agent Andrew Romagnuolo for the original Search and Seizure Warrants.

So while I urge you to be respectful and helpful to the criminal investigation… My non-legal advise is: DO NOT talk to the FBI or any law enforcement officer without an attorney present. This is your right – please exercise it. Simply tell the law enforcement officer that you wish to have an attorney present. Why should you be at risk when there is so much mistrust? Remember you are not required to even talk to a law enforcement officer unless you are subpoenaed. And then you have still have a right to have an attorney represent you. And if you can’t afford an attorney, the court will provide one. Quite frankly, I think it would be GREAT if 1,000 people requested an attorney so we could all take part in this !@#$#@! criminal investigation. Meanwhile, Liberty Dollar is making as much Real Money as possible and remains dedicated to providing an “inflation proof” solution to our country’s mounting monetary problems.

Seriously, several calls have already been reported. So please be on guard for FBI, crank or mysterious callers. Given the government thirst for dirty tricks, scare tactics, misc. calls and other ploys of disinformation, please report anything out of the ordinary that you think might be related to the Liberty Dollar. Please call or email the Liberty Dollar office IMMEDIATELY: 888.LIB.DOLLAR or email: FBI@LibertyDollar.org.

Please note the government is not required to send out a Target Letter to anyone, even if they are the target of an investigation. In fact, Target Letter is a misnomer because it is NOT sent to “targets.” It is mainly used as a scare tactic against people who may be called to testify before the Grand Jury. Maybe 1,000 people whose property has been seized should call the FBI and volunteer to testify… all with a court appointed attorney of course.

In response to the FBI’s Target Letters to Sarah Bledsoe and Rachelle Moseley, some Liberty Dollar supporters feel cheated by the recent FBI action:

Matthew Pitagora – RCO of San Jose wants a Target Letter.

“What? The DOJ only targets women for their Grand Jury Investigations these days? I want to be the target of a Federal Grand Jury Investigation! Come on FBI! You know where I live, so come on over and deliver my target letter at 6:45 AM. Oh wait, I forgot… I’m a BoR, Article 2 militia man, so I will get the standard 3 AM, flash-bang no-knock, with the fully armed, armored and offensive assistance of the U.S. Marshalls and federally bribed, local LEOs! So much for equality, justice and the American dream!”

Art Nicolet – RCO of Tucson agrees!

“This is discrimination! How come the FBI picks on women?? I want my target letter too! Oh, by the way I was sworn in as an American Online Grand Jury member today through http://www.americangrandjury.org. You see, the government would have you believe that only the federal courts convene a grand jury. But wait! The Constitution provides a means for ordinary Americans to form a grand jury to investigate illegal and immoral acts of politicians, bureaucrats and even the FBI. Go check it out. Let’s convene a Grand Jury to investigate the illegal seizure of our personal property of gold and silver. We don’t have to wait for the government to decide what it is going to use as a ploy to postpone return of our assets. In the meantime I can’t wait to get my target letter.”

[Editor note: I must confess that I too feel left out of Agent F’s most recent holiday in Evansville. If he really wants to take a holiday he should “hand serve” my T-Letter in Hawaii! Now that would be real vacation. P.S.: Contrary to what you might think, “Agent F” does NOT stand for the F-word as defined by FCC. Nor does it stand for Fool, Fumbling or Funny. He is none of those. “F” simply stands for Failure because he is not an “A” agent nor is he going to win.]

2. Tea Party Dollar $1 Going… Going… Soon to be Gone!

I am still amazed that over 60,000 Tea Party Dollars were ordered in 24 hours! WOW! And the orders are continuing. The first T-Dollars have been shipped and are due to be in your hands by the Fourth of July! Please click HERE to avoid disappointment and order your Tea Party Dollar now. Still only a $1.00 or less! Disclaimer: Please note the Tea Party Dollar is NOT government issued money and is in fact a private voluntary barter currency (PVBC)dedicated to providing Americans with an inflation proof solution to our mounting monetary problems.

Get your Tea Party Dollar flag now! This terrific flag will be available in time for the Fourth of July! Currently we still have a limited number of 2 X 3 foot Tea Party Dollar flags for $6 each or order two or more for only $5 each! Please click HERE to order.

3. All Tea Party Dollar Orders are PRE-ORDERS

Let’s face it… the Tea Party efforts and the rise of the people’s opposition to government spending and bailouts is pretty damn amazing. And so is the Tea Party Dollar as evidence of that movement. Please note that all T-Dollars are ordered and paid for before delivery. This has been specified in all the offers. We had just enough lead-time to get the T-Dollars before the Fourth of July events. You can look forward to having your order in time IF YOU ORDERED IN THE FIRST 24 HOURS.

All orders placed after the initial 24 hours offer will not be available until after July 4th. We will ship them ASAP.

Meanwhile, I understand that the first $1 Tea Party Dollar has been posted on eBay for $5.99! And it is not even here yet. I am sure there is much fun to be had with such an inexpensive $1 item and I hope you have ordered enough. We do not plan to order more T-Dollars. Please click HERE to avoid disappointment and order Tea Party Dollars. It’s time to join the Party!

4. Federal Reserve can/will/have Created the Recession

Jon Nadler, Senior Analyst with Kitco Bullion Dealers in Montreal, finally gets it right in a long-winded article by quoting Marvin Goodfriend, a former official at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond: “Anybody who has been a central banker wouldn’t want to see inflation expectations become unhinged.” Goodfriend continues, “The Fed would have to create a recession to get its credibility back.” Goodfriend is now a professor at Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business in Pittsburgh.

Look at that quote! A Harvard professor acknowledges that the Federal Reserve has the ability to “create a recession” in the U.S. economy to regain its credibility! They can… will… and have done exactly that! The only thing more amazing is that the American people are standing by while the government steals their purchasing power, retirement money and everything they and their children hope to enjoy! Simply amazing!!! Time for REAL MONEY to the rescue!!

If you have lots of time to waste, I recommend you read this looooooooooong article at:

http://www.kitco.com/ind/nadler/may192009A.html

Chris Powell, Secretary/Treasurer of Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc. (GATA) confirmed, “Yes, the manipulation of interest rates is part of the manipulation of gold and the tyrannical power to control the whole economy.” If you are not familiar with the great work by GATA, please visit them at http://www.GATA.org.

5. Liberty Dollar M&M! How Sweet!

Now on a sweeter note. Did you know you can order custom M&Ms?! And as you may guess there are LIBERTY DOLLAR M&Ms!!! This is all the great work by Dave Gillie – RCO for Flint. Recently, I stopped by Dave’s Coney Island Restaurant and discovered… the Liberty Dollar M&M! They are the real thing and packaged 50 per bag. Just click HERE to design your custom M&M, select color and package! WOW what a great idea for a sweet commodity currency!

6. Bernard’s Personal Rule 41g Motion

The court denied my Motion to give the government an additional 60 days to reply to my motion for recovery of the office computers, etc., that were not covered by the overly broad Search and Seizure Warrants. The DOJ’s 137 days to reply ends on June 17, just three days before the DOJ must reply to the much larger Rule 41g Motion for recovery of all the gold, silver, copper, etc., seized in Evansville and Coeur d’Alene over a year and a half ago. Stay tuned and responsive to these actions to help get your property back ASAP!

Closing Remarks:

Thank you for reading this newsletter. The first 50 people to email Thanks@LibertyDollar.org with the word FREE in the subject field will receive a free Tea Party Flag! As the Liberty Dollar heads to court, we all need to hang together or we will all hang separately. And as our Founding Fathers discovered, it was advantageous and just more fun to hang out together. Please continue to spread the Liberty Dollar solution to the current government created monetary problems. Real Money is the solution!

Many thanks for your continued support. For it is only by banding together and adopting a free and independent currency that provides us with “just weights and measures” will we be able to throw off the yoke of a manipulated monetary/tax system and generate a peaceful and prosperous society.

Thank you again for all your efforts to return America to value – one dollar at a time!

INTERESTING: The nocebo hypothesis

http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig10/deutsch1.html

A Fat Nocebo by Marshall E. Deutsch

*** begin quote ***

R. A. Hahn defined it in Preventive Medicine in 1997: “The nocebo hypothesis proposes that expectations of sickness and the affective states associated with such expectations cause sickness in the expectant. The nocebo phenomenon is a little-recognized facet of culture that may be responsible for a substantial variety of pathology throughout the world.” This was recognized by reporter Brian Reid, who wrote, in an article on the nocebo effect, in The Washington Post for April 30, 2002: “Ten years ago, researchers stumbled onto a striking finding: Women who believed that they were prone to heart disease were nearly four times as likely to die as women with similar risk factors who didn’t hold such fatalistic views.” He was referring to data amassed during the massive collection of data on the causes of heart disease in Framingham Massachusetts.

*** end quote ***

Interesting, in that I’ve heard or read the phrase: “The Universe supplies what you think about.”

Even used the concept in my book at least twice that I remember.

Chapter 39: “You admired the Hungarian children resistance fighters; you’ve become what you admired. Your thought became your reality.”

Chapter 43: “Did I tell you how self-actualization and consciousness quantum collapse work?”

Funny.

Maybe it is a “scientific principle”, like the Law of Gravity, but we have not had an “Issac Newton” “discover” it for us?

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: The White House hustled the Chrysler bankruptcy judge?

http://apps.detnews.com/apps/blogs/autosblog/index.php?blogid=746

Category: Chrysler bankruptcy
Posted by Manny Lopez (The Detroit News) on Mon, Jun 1, 2009 at 6:19 AM
Carefully orchestrated indeed

*** begin quote ***

The bankruptcy judge hearing the Chrysler case said Friday he wasn’t going to rule on the asset sale until today or Tuesday, but a call from the White House must have prompted him to move faster because he ruled in the wee hours of this morning.

See, the administration wanted to hold up Chrysler as an example of a “quick and speedy” bankruptcy, but Judge Arthur Gonzalez – deciding he needed more time to rule – put a crimp in those plans and left the White House looking at a GM filing today and Chrysler still in. Oops.

Remarkably, Gonzalez got all his work done just in time and filed his opinion after midnight to save the show.

I’m sure we’ll hear today when questioned that the White House had nothing to do with that timing, just as we’ve heard that it is not making management decisions at GM or Chrysler.

*** end quote ***

Please you expect “justice” from a government court when the President is involved?
Don’t make me laugh!
Sheeple!
