“So you think that money is the root of all evil. Have you ever asked what is the root of all money?” -Ayn Rand

Money used to be a stable medium of exchange and a store of value but that was in the days when there were sound monetary principles, mostly backed by gold or silver.

*** and ***

But these are the consequences that history teaches us time and time again. But sadly everyone thinks it is different today.

Since every currency system in history has collapsed, it is quite a certain bet that this one will too.

For the few who have savings, wealth preservation in physical gold and silver is essential as insurance against yet another failed currency and financial system.

And for everybody it is important to remember that the most important things in life are family and friends. Helping others in difficult times is critical.

Remember also that many wonderful things in life are free, conversations, books, music and nature.

At this time of peace and joy, let’s prepare for the 7 years of “famine” ahead. 

Buy some commodities and stash them away for the future.

Vote with your wallet when you spend “dollars” and vote your politics considering your wallet.

POLITICAL: Are id requirements “racist”? No!

Asking For I.D. Before Voting Is ‘Racist’, But You Need A Govt. I.D. To Buy Drain Cleaner?

Got a clogged drain? Before you can buy that liquid drain cleaner, I need to see some ID.

*** and ***

If it is considered “racist” or “discrimination” to ask a voter for a photo ID before they are allowed to cast a ballot, why is it not racist to ask for a government issued ID card when you want to buy drain cleaner or pay for your gasoline with cash?

*** end quote ***

What stupidity?

The ONLY reason not to have voter id requirements is that the duopoly wants the ability to stuff the ballot box.

The Dead Old White Guys were right. Gooferment, politicians and bureaucrats are not to be trusted.

We’ve already seen “dead people” vote, more votes than people, and “math errors” in elections.

And, candidates don’t have to prove they’re eligible.

SO why vote?

Democracy is mob rule. Might as well turn the process over to the mob as we did with the Seventeenth Amendment.

Argh!

FUN: Sarcastic chicken story

FROM LUDDITE:

Homer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens) called “pullets,” and 10 roosters to fertilize the eggs. He kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup potand was replaced.

This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so he could tell from a distance which rooster was performing. Now he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening tothe bells. Homer’s favorite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen, but one morning he noticed old Butch’s bell hadn’t rung at all!

When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, could run for cover.

To Homer’s amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn’t ring. He’d sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one. Homer was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the County Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the No-Bell Piece Prize, but they also awarded him the Pullet surprise as well.

Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making. Who else but a Politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren’t paying attention.

Vote very carefully next year…the bells are not always audible.

Remember, a freeman can vote himself into slavery, but a slave cannot vote himself free.
