ATTENTION, AMAZON Users

Today, I received a very official looking email from AMAZON email address.

It had an Amazon Dot Com link that “went to my account”. I check what was behind the text. Because the junk after Amazon Dot Com was garbage, it resolved to the front page and the cookie signed me in.

I almost fell for it EXCEPT:

  • Why would Amazon attach a zip file to an order confirmation?
  • IT came in from “delivers@amazon.com” which it not my address for amazon.
  • I didn’t order anything that I was still waiting for.

Even after that analysis, when it came it I almost screwed up.

Take care.

Of course, I reported it to: stop-spoofing@amazon.com

NOTE: GMAIL didn’t like it either.

The message “Order Details” from Amazon.com (delivers@amazon.com) contained a virus or a suspicious attachment. It was therefore not fetched from your account fjohn@reinke.cc and has been left on the server.

Message-ID: <0MfXLH-1XEgyE1rtz-00P1O6@mx.perfora.net>

If you wish to write to Amazon.com, just hit reply and send Amazon.com a message.

Thanks,

MONEY: THOSE SAME THREE SILVER DIMES

Gas Prices Near 6-Year Highs, No Inflation? Who SaysThursday
July 03, 2014 12:59

*** begin quote ***

While official government statistics show U.S. inflation at still low levels, anyone who buys gas, food or health insurance can attest to the fact that inflation exists in our everyday lives. GasBuddy has predicted that U.S. consumers will see the most expensive July 4th since 2008 at the gas pump.

Despite the dramatic increase in U.S. oil production in recent years, GasBuddy estimates that Americans are likely to pay about $1.435 billion per day for gasoline during the holiday week, about $50 million more each day, or $350 million more per week than last year.

*** end quote ***

Any wonder why the “stock market” is going up while the “standard of living” is going down like the Titanic!

The value of the Federal Reserve Note!

THREE silver dimes from 1964, when I started buying gas, would buy ONE GALLON of gas. At $21.15 per silver ounce, those SAME THREE SILVER DIMES are worth $5.70. Far more than a gallon of gas. (Never mind that today’s gas is better, cleaner, and healthier.)

So what’s changed?

The value of money has been inflated away by the Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats for the benefit of the Crony Capitalists and the Banking Cartel.

When do The Sheeple wake up?

POLITICAL: WW2 wage and price controls cause today’s problems

Time to cut employers out of the healthcare loop
Daniel Froomkin asks one of the right questions in the wake of yesterday’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case: “Why should employers have anything to do with people’s health insurance anyway?”

# – # – # – # – #  

I, for once, agree.

I would say why should Gooferment or its corporations be in charge of “health”, “health care”, “health care insurance”, or something else?

Look at “life insurance”. “Cheap”, easily available, and virtually unregulated.

Even “car insurance” is relatively the same when compared to “health insurance”.

When you think about it, the current “system” comes from the WW2 wage and price controls. There, the Gooferment, created the problem and “they” keep “rescuing” us from the problem they created.

Could we at least consider an alternative?

If the problem was “uninsured”, (which I dispute), then could “we” NOT bought every uninsured person a policy and avoided the financial and systematic débâcle that was Obamacare?

I think that you liberals think that only the Gooferment can solve “problems”. When in actuality, it causes the problem it seek to proclaim it’s solving.
