“Money Is Gold — and Nothing Else”

This post “Money Is Gold — and Nothing Else” appeared first on Daily Reckoning . Following the Panic of 1907, John Pierpont Morgan was called to testify before Congress in 1912 on the subject of Wall Street manipulations and what was then called the “money trust” or banking monopoly of J. P. Morgan & Co. In the course of his testimony, Morgan made one of the most profound and lasting remarks in the history of finance.

Morgan: Not always. That is an evidence of banking, but it is not the money itself. Money is gold, and nothing else.

Congressman Proposes Banning Assault Weapons

“No one wants to take away your guns.” How many times have you been in an argument with a gun grabber and they uttered that very phrase? I’m not even talking about a variation of that phrase, I mean those exact words in that exact order.

Instead, we should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons. The ban would not apply to law enforcement agencies or shooting clubs.

Anyone have any doubt what the “Democrats” want to do?

Can you spell “genocide”?

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: The government school is the sacrament of the American religion?



*** begin quote ***

Our most recent episode of Contra Krugman — my weekly podcast with Bob Murphy that takes apart a Paul Krugman New York Timescolumn — took on Krugman’s claims about education, teacher salaries, and spending.

The government school is the object of veneration of the American religion.

Therefore, it’s become impossible to view it objectively.

But that’s what we did in our episode.

For example, surveys of adults in a variety of subject areas, from science to history to government, finds most unable to demonstrate even basic competence. It’s a disaster.

This after 13 years in the government’s system.

Just days ago the National Assessment of Educational Progress, a project of the U.S. Department of Education, reported that 65 percent of American eighth graders are not proficient at reading, and 67 percent are not proficient in math.

Students emerge from their 13 years, furthermore, without a single skill that can command a decent wage. In the age of the Internet, they’ve been taught none of the basics of how to make an online living.

Now if the private sector generated such atrocious results, we’d never hear the end of it. Why, these fatcats care nothing about education or the poor. Just their own profits!

But since it’s the government, we get…silence. Oh, and demands for more money.

(If the schools were run by Walmart, do you suppose these folks would accept the “we need more money” excuse?)

Gooferment Skrules are a disaster in every dimension, imho!!!

There were two great “definitions”:

  • The Federal Government is an insurance company with an army.
  • The State Governments are educational companies with police forces.

So true!

Seems like “We, The Sheeple” need to separate “insurance” and “education” from Gooferment.
