RECOMMENDED: Julie & Julia

Julie & Julia

*** begin quote ***

Julia Child (Meryl Streep) and Julie Powell (Amy Adams) are featured in writer-director Nora Ephron’s adaptation of two bestselling memoirs: Powell’s Julie & Julia and My Life in France, by Julia Child with Alex Prud’homme. Based on two true stories, Julie & Julia intertwines the lives of two women who, though separated by time and space, are both at loose ends…until they discover that with the right combination of passion, fearlessness and butter, anything is possible. Written by Columbia Pictures

It was “funny peculiar”; not “funny haha”.

Maybe it resonated so well for the mid-life crisis aspect.

Not a chick flick, it had a poignant tone to it. Sadly funny.

I liked it; Frau didn’t. YMMV

p.s., especially funny; who would ever write a 700 page book? rofl!

MONEY: Gold was debunked?


The Gold standard debunked 80 years ago.. THere’s not enough Au or Ag in the ground to support an Earth-wide economy of 6+ Billion people….

*** my response ***

I believe, respectfully, that you missed the point. It’s not about Au or Ag. It’s about selecting something (anything) that limits the “sovereign” from adulterating the currency. With a fixed amount of Au in the universe, who cares if a dollar maps to micrograms as opposed to ounces. The respective gooferments can NOT just print more “wealth” that they use. From the Civil War to the Fed, prices gently declined. The greenback and the gold specie were circulated equally. “Good as gold”. Unfortunately, the Fed allowed the politicians to escape the chains of fiscal discipline. They can’t raise taxes so they inflate the currency. Look at the value of a dollar. It lost GT10% against the Euro last week alone. Argh!

I’ve blogged about my realization at the Smithsonian. The franc of Louis 1 was a hockey puck of gold; fast forward to Louis 14 and it’s a thin shirt button. That demonstrates inflation.

If we mined all the gold, currency units would be mapped to ounces of gold. Who cares if it mili ounces or nano ounces. It restricts how much currency the gooferment can print.

It doesn’t matter if it is gold, silver, or something else that’s limited in supply. The idea is to PREVENT gooferment from creating it. Out of thin air!

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: The unanswered questions of the Kennedy assasination

Deep Politics and the Death of JFK by Peter Dale Scott
Book review by Jodey Bateman

*** begin quote ***

Scott says that at this point it is not possible to say what specific individuals plotted to kill Kennedy. However, there is publicly available information, easy to obtain, on why a much larger group of individuals was willing to stage an official cover-up to make it appear that the Kennedy assassination was simply a horrible accident without political significance.

And, that is why dear Sheeple, we will never get the truth about anything.

The gooferment is corrupt.

Slowly, but surely, with age, I am becoming an anarchist.

The gooferment is the meme that kills and enslaves us.

We need to find a better answer.

GUNS: Suprise, suprise.

GA: Schoolteacher exchanges gunfire with carjackers
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

*** begin quote ***

“A DeKalb County schoolteacher carjacked early Sunday scored a measure of revenge against his attackers — thanks in part to their poor sense of direction. Derek Harper, 47, had just returned to his Lithonia home around 1:15 a.m. when two unidentified gunmen surprised him from behind, forcing the Evansdale Elementary teacher out of his car and onto the ground, demanding money. ‘After they figured out I didn’t have any cash on me they got into my van,’ he said. His narrow garage helped Harper sneak away. ‘One of them was having trouble getting into the passenger’s side, so while he was doing that I took off,’ said Harper, also the assistant track coach at Stephenson High. As he ran the gunmen started firing, striking Harper once in the arm before speeding off in his van, heading directly toward a dead end on Phillips Place. Knowing they’d be forced to turn around, Harper ran inside and grabbed his .380 pistol. ‘I was waiting for them,’ he said. Harper estimates he fired two to three bullets, which might have contributed to the driver crashing the van less than a block away.” (08/03/09)

380, a girllie gun. A 1911 45 would have been much more effective.

But better than nothing.

RANT: Reply to an abomb post

Unfortunately, the gooferment writes the history book. And, now teaches the young to bey. Secrets are hidden almost forever. A sad day for the American experiment in so many ways. Did the experiment end with the bloody “civil” war? If not, Shay’s rebellion? We’re just kidding ourselves that we control this monster called government. That’s why I call government the meme that kills and enslaves us. Time to update out thinking?

POLITICAL: Anyone ever heard of Basat?

Obama administration withholds data on clunkers

LaHood, for example, promotes the fact that the Ford Focus so far is at the top of the list of new cars purchased under the program. But the limited information released so far shows most buyers are not picking Ford, Chrysler or General Motors vehicles, and six of the top 10 vehicles purchased are Honda, Toyota and Hyundai.

*** end quote ***

How STUPID are we? This is like FDR having pigs slaughtered to raise the price of pork during the Great Depression!

(1) Damage and disable perfectly good cars and prevent the marketplace from giving poorer people good transportation. Where is the intelligence in this?

(2) Most folks (from my statistical survey) are buying foreign. (I would!)

(3) Where is the billion dollars for this coming from? Soon to be 2 billion? This is national suicide!

(4) Where is the economic GENIUS who figured this one out. It has to be someone who hasn’t heard of Bastiat and the Broken Window fallacy!

Hope stupid are the Sheeple? Very stupid!
