As the FED turns up the heat in the central bank frying pan, the frogs (public) don’t realize they are being cooked to death by inflation. I am quite amazed how loud the sizzling sound has become, but for some odd reason hardly anyone notices it.

Unfortunately, we are well past the point of no return. It’s only a matter of time now before the whole “Financial Cliff” falls off the mountain side. Until then, gold and silver investors will have to put up with some of the worst analysis ever to come out of government and MSM.

Another indication that “someone” is cooking the books.

In a free market, commodities don’t diverge from glacial trends.

Of course, as a tin foil hat, I suspect manipulation.

The FED can print “dollars”, but they can’t print gold, silver, oil, land, food, water, bandaids, or bullets.

This is all a fraud being pulled on the Sheeple and Clovers.

MONEY: What have we allowed to be done?

Book Review: What Has Government Done to Our Money?

*** begin quote ***

In the United States we currently have a stated policy by the Federal Reserve to create higher levels of inflation while artificially lowering interest rates. This is a policy devastating to savers and those attempting to live off of the proceeds of their capital. How did we arrive at the point where a government created agency can arbitrarily opt to destroy the value of people’s savings?

Murray Rothbard’s What Has Government Done to Our Money? lays out the step by step process by which the commodity based monies of the free market are slowly and deliberately usurped by governments and their central banks. The end result of this control is the ability of government to take purchasing power from the savings of its citizens through inflation.

Understanding money and its creation are essential to understanding how inflation originates. Rothbard assumes no prior knowledge of the subject and begins with first principles to derive what money is and how it is used in a free market. He then covers the manipulations used by government to wrestle control of money away from the free market. Finally he finishes with a two hundred year history of money and currencies in the Western world. It is through this history he demonstrates how government abuse has resulted in a series of breakdowns of the dollar with respect to gold that have inevitably led to our current global monetary crisis.

*** end quote ***

We have allowed the politicians and bureaucrats to inflate the paper currency and silently steal from everyone — rich and poor  alike — their wealth. For the poor, it’s the value of their labor. For the rich, it’s the value of their savings.



MONEY: Commodities tell us that the politicians are lying. (What’s news there?)

Riding Into the Sunset or a Brick Wall?

If everyone starts to carry rolls of cash everywhere, it’s not a big leap to carry coins. A silver coin the size of a dime is currently worth about $3.50. Two could buy you lunch.

*** end quote ***

As someone, who remembers 29 cent per gallon gas — with a glass, trading stamps, and a guy to wipe the window, it’s not a far stretch to imagine a country using gold and silver coins as money.

Paper should be bank warehouse receipts. No fractional reserve banking should be permitted.

We shouldn’t let the elite effete political class define money. Money should be a weight of something. The free market will assign it a value.

In the debate Ron Paul gave a classic line about “in the Sixties, three silver dimes would buy a gallon of gas and those same three silver dimes would buy more gas now”. Still true. Even in California.

Now if you are reading this, just ask yourself: “What’s changed?”

Three silver dimes = gallon of gas in 1960’s = more than a gallon of gas in 2012.

Yet, gas is now over $3 per gallon. 5 in California.

What’s changed?

Could it be that the value of the dollar has changed? Not the value of silver or gasoline?

What’s the yardstick?

This makes the case that gasoline is actually CHEAPER now.


And, the politicians tell us there is no inflation!

No wonder the oil sheiks are screaming like stuck pigs. They are getting robbed like the rest of us.
