Attack, Squash and Move On

Bad things happen to everyone. No one is immune to that. The differences between people who are happy and miserable people are that happy ones know what to do when something bad happens.

They attack it, like a vulture on prey. As soon as something look like it’s about to go awry they are on top of it to squash it.

If they aren’t able to stop the crisis from happening, they do everything in their power to control every part of it until it’s resolved. They take it over and do whatever they have to do to resolve it. Once it’s resolved, they take a deep breath, relax and move on with a smile.

So what does it feel like after an accomplishment like that? Image yourself conquering a crisis with control and strength. Now you know can take on anything life wants to throw your way. You are ready.

It’s not all that easy.

Some things are a permanent punch in the gut.

Some times you don’t have choice.

“My love, were it in my power, I would sadly grant thee this boon. But, we have to continue to follow His Plan for us. Let’s go forth and speak no more of this. Who ever is last will be last. It will be His choice; not ours. We’re but humble custodians of His temple on earth. It’s not our place to trump His plan. Whatever that plan be, know that I will be with you to my last breath.” — character “John” in CHURCH 10●19●62 Volume 2 Page 399

But that doesn’t mean being “happy” going forward.

One goes “forward” because there’s really no other choice.

MONEY: It’s always the money, stupid

It’s The Money, Stupid

*** begin quote ***

The American government is going to die because they screwed up the money. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY. IT’S THE MONEY, STUPID. And it’s DC’s greed that will be its undoing. Fiat currency…the dollar…is an nonredeemable debt instrument. The dollar-based monetary system is 100% based in debt. Precious metals are money. They are 100% based in value. Redeemability provides stability, which produces predictability. THAT’S how you run an economy.

*** end quote ***

If you distill “our problems” to one essential flaw it’s the money.

How can you play a game, where the “player / banker” participates?

At monopoly, the make introduced credit card to eliminate that flaw.

We need to do the same thing in our mess. (What else can you call the economy / politics / legal framework?

We need a free market in money.

Repealing the “legal tender” laws — it’s money because the Gooferment says it is — would allow “We, The Sheeple” to chose their poison.
