Utah Considers Return to Gold, Silver Coins

The Utah House was to vote as early as Thursday on legislation that would recognize gold and silver coins issued by the federal government as legal currency in the state. The coins would not replace the current paper currency but would be used and accepted voluntarily as an alternative.

The legislation, which has 12 co-sponsors, would let Utahans pay their taxes with gold and also calls for a committee to study alternative currencies for the state. It would also exempt the sale of gold from the state capital gains tax.

The bill cleared a state legislative committee on Wednesday, the first of 11 similar bills in statehouses across the country to do so. If the bill clears the House, it would have to pass the Senate before the governor could sign it into law.

Excellent!

We need a return to sanity.

And, an end to “legal tender” laws.

Allow the marketplace and the people to decide what is “money”?

I’ll know we’re free when the supermarkets price their wares in units of silver or gold.

MYLIFE: Bought beach badges yesterday

Well, it’s almost spring and Frau Reinke would be disappointed in me if I didn’t get the beach badges. Don’t have them yet, but I paid for them.

And, paid the taxes. Argh!

I thought maybe a peek at the water would enhance my altitude. But it was cold. Shore cold. No wind, but you didn’t want to stay outside.

Didn’t help!

EVLYNN: Nothing seemed impossible with Ev on your side

Dear John,

I didn’t know. Thank you for letting me know. Ev was so special — I would have written that “she was the dream team” and not “a member of the dream team.” Nothing seemed impossible with Ev on your side. Didn’t realize how hard and serious her health battle was.

From our brief exchange, she seemed pleased with her life. Not so many can say that. And you must miss her terribly.

She’ll be in my prayers and in my thoughts. I sent the clipping to my sister who played on Benedictine’s basketball team — our arch rival. Ev was loved by all!

Love,
Jane

[JR: Thanks for those kind words. I’m not surprised. That she always minimized her own health and that she understated her role in the HFA victories. And, I always felt nothing was impossible. Except we never did hit that multi-million progressive. So I guess some things WERE impossible.]

Dear Ms. Jane,

I’m just going through all the old email and cleaning up. If you hadn’t heard, I just wanted you to know that Ev passed. She enjoyed catching up with you. Just wanted you to know, she was pleased.

MACBOOKAIR: Could Apple have a wifi software problem?

I don’t know. I don’t have the hardware, software, or expertise to debug the situation. But, when my MIFI and my WIFI, both have sucky performance. And, programs, that access the network, seem slow. And, I ‘always’ see “searching for networks”. Could it be that they have a significant problem with wifi at the operating system level?

Sigh!

How to figure that our?

RANT: Appealing to the UN Commission on the Status of Women; what gigantic joke!

Holy See defends marriage, family life before UN commission on women
March 02, 2011

*** begin quote ***

The Holy See’s delegation defended marriage and family life and condemned discrimination against women during a February 28 meeting of the UN Economic and Social Council’s Commission on the Status of Women.

*** end quote ***

That’s a colossal waste of time. (Although Betty White’s language might be much more appropriate.)

India, Iran, Turkey, Syria?

Countries and religions well known for their poor treatment of women.

In recorded history, what civilization permits femicide — in all sorts of ways.

It’s contra-survival. It’s immoral. It’s cutting down on genetic diversity. It’s stupid. It’s seen in no other species.

It’s a path down a dead end street. Like abortion. Like the Shakers. It leads to extinction.

China has a problem because they have socially engineered their way into not having enough women. Good for them. They need a few social problems to work on.

Now, personally, as a little L libertarian, they can do whatever they want in their section of the world. The USA should be like Switzerland. Don’t ask us, we’re neutral. Everyone has to fight for the rights they want to preserve.

“Governments are instituted among men to secure these rights …”

But don’t plan to import your brand of craziness here. We have enough of our own nuttiness! Or haven’t you seen our post office, listen to our radio. or talk to our politicians?

Frankly, in the competitive world market, I’m glad when our competition ties half their population in mental bondage. Imagine if all those women were doing their thing we might have to worry. The phrase “if momma ain’t happy, no one is happy” comes to mind.

And, women have the power to change the world for peace if they ever decide to use it.

Permit me a quote:

*** begin quote ***

Miss Abigail: “No, Miss Marie, in our new world run by women, there will be no sex discrimination. We control the box.” With no hint of self- consciousness or shame.

Miss Marie: “Dear, that’s not a nice way to say it. And, box is very crude. I’m sorry I used it but I was … incensed that war should happen. Maybe you could say ‘we control the future generations’?”

Miss Abigail: “OK, but those balls will be blue before I let my man start another war.”

Knowing she’d done all she could, Marie said, “When this is all over, we should talk my dear. We should really talk. Now away with you. Carefully mind you.”

*** end quote ***

— a conversation between ‘Miss Marie’ and ‘Miss Abigail’ in CHURCH 10●19●62 Volume 1 Page 263

Yes, I squeezed every concept I believe in into my novel.

But, I truly believe every word I put into Miss Abigail. When women assume their proper station and role in the world, it will become a much more peaceful place.

Donna Nobis Pacem!
