Mark???¦??s Column ~ The ???¦?Southern Fried???¦? Edition ~ Beatin???¦?? the Odds. . .
I hope this day finds you in good form. Wow, do we have some interesting news to report in this issue. Hey, the Utah leadership has figured it out:
Two thumbs up for Orrin Hatch. Now we???¦??ll have to see what Mitt Romney has to deliver. On the other political front, Barack Obama attests that he ate dog meat and grasshoppers as a child. If he was born in America, why was he eating dog meat and roasted grasshoppers? He???¦??s the one that published that material and it???¦??s all quoted on this thread. . .

Well, as a person living in Utah I have a message for Barack Obama, Timothy Geithner and Ben Bernanke (Burnanke would be a better name for him for burning the cash of the citizens of the United States. ???¦?Helicopter Ben???¦? is what he is known as because prior to him being appointed, he stated that he would throw cash out of a helicopter to the people before he would let a recession occur. So, during Bernanke???¦??s reign we have a demise of the housing industry and people losing their homes at an unheard of rate. He as exacerbated a Federal Deficit in which there is no way the United States can recover. No way. So we are either going to pay through hyperinflation or higher taxes. If the Feds print more money, look for Super Inflation.)
Ted Nugent has it more correct than all of us. This past week Nugent started a controversy by stating, ???¦?If Barack Obama is voted back in office, I???¦??m going to be dead or in jail in 12 months.???¦? My feelings are pretty much the same. How we got some dog eating and grasshopper chomping ever-expending person into office is far beyond my comprehension. Hey, don???¦??t doubt that statement, Barack Obama is the one that published it in his own book. He should worry more about running this nation than he does about writing.
Okay, back to gold and silver . . . just listen to the people who know and understand what is going on and you will be just fine. Take a moment for yourself to celebrate for those of you that own gold and/or silver. Go grab a drink and chill out. This tune may be a little radical for some of you, but not for us old-timers ~~

Well, we???¦??re walking on a track of very interesting times. It appears the mass media is more focused on a bunch of crap than they are on focusing on what the public needs to be informed about. Utah has become the first state to actually pass a law that will permit both silver and gold to be traded in exchange for goods and services. Watch this, ???¦?After months of public outcry over Washington???¦??s out-of-control fiscal and monetary policies, Utah Governor Gary Herbert signed into law Utah House Bill 157 Currency Amendment allowing gold and silver bullion as legal tender within the state to settle retail transactions and debts.???¦? It???¦??s all documented right here ~ http://etfdailynews.com/2012/04/19/utah-goes-rogue-to-save-itself-gold-silver-now-legal-tender-uup-gld-slv-agq-iau/ ~ and you know where to find all of the best research on the earth. Combining Max Keiser, Bob Moriarty, Stacy Herbert, Karl Denninger, Matt Taibbi and the fine writers from Zerohedge.com along with the Drudge Report . . . It looks to me like we have something coming up here, ladies and gentlemen. Let???¦??s take another short break for something to take us through the southeastern states . . .

Well you know what has happened as well as the greatest deficit in United States history? The sales of guns has gone through the roof. Oh yes, that???¦??s right. People are getting set up for the disaster anybody with any common sense can see forthcoming. They are tired of hearing about skewed unemployment reports and that the economy is improving. Have you seen the increased usage of food stamps in the last quarter. Food stamp applications are up over 70%. Then we have Blackhawk helicopters circling the skies in Chicago. Why is that? Crime has increase just so people can get food. This is what is happening in America. The leadership regime in place right now in America has got to be the worst I have ever seen. There are many historians that are saying it is the worst ever. I have to say, as a researcher ~ I believe them.
Personal finance is difficult enough without having to deal with inflation, hyper-inflation, stagflation, crime and increases in the cost of energy. Wages are going down as the cost for fuel goes up. That means that those who have to commute to work using a motorized vehicle are losing on two sides of the coin. Companies are also cutting back on the number of hours they permit their employees to work. The most intelligent thing that an individual can do is to live in close proximity of their working environment, to drive vehicles that get good gas mileage and make as few commutes as possible. What is taking place is going to kill the travel industry as fast as it kills off the family household. It is also destroying relationships amongst married couples. The financial stress is getting horrendous for those that didn???¦??t learn to adapt to the rapid changes that have taken place.
The labor market has not opened up (in spite of what the bozos in the Beltway have to say), and unemployment rates are on the rise. The actual unemployment rate in the United States is over 20%. Start bartering! I have been yelling this for months. We are there! We are in the absolute terrible spot and right now, politicians are more interested in kissing rear ends than they are in representing the people who voted them into office.
The interesting thing about these issues is that when people speak the truth about the mentioned events, they get slammed by the mass media. Ted Nugent, perfect example. Oh I don???¦??t want to even go there in this report. I???¦??m on Uncle Ted???¦??s side. For now, I believe what this society needs to focus on is educating the public through Internet sources and viable education organizations. Let???¦??s take a teaching lesson . . . and a break. I???¦??m getting myself worked up again!
Teacher, Teacher . . . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL46rSUXW1k
Well, I???¦??m telling you one thing right now folks ~ unless we get courses in academia at an early age that teach our children how to handle finances, we are NEVER going to solve this catastrophe of a Federal Deficit that has been created by a bunch of Ivy League want-to-be people who have really screwed up the system. The financial system and the fiat system of currency are corrupt. Our leaders have been bought out by the oligarchs.
Utah has made some advances. Although Utah has passed a law where silver & gold can be exchanged for goods and services, how can anyone hand an ounce of gold to their local grocer and expect to get change on something that is valued at nearly 1,700 dollars an ounce? Silver is the most rational way to go and Eric Sprott knows it as well as anyone on this planet who is informed of commodities. In fact, he is projecting that silver will hit 100 dollars per ounce over the next 12-18 months.
Americans are very tired of the lies coming out of the White House. We have an egomaniac in office right now that doesn???¦??t even qualify to be there. He spends tens of thousands of dollars (taxpayer money) on vacations and parties without even remaining focused on events around the world that will destroy our currency, and our country. The trust of the people is falling apart as will the states of our nation. One by one they are going bankrupt. Municipalities are going bankrupt, as are states. Watch as this action speeds up after Germany doesn???¦??t bail Spain out of their disaster and Greece moves to a different currency (which they have already done ~ they have gone to exchanging silver and a bartering system rather than depending on the Euro).
Well, I???¦??ll tell you one thing right now ~ somebody in Utah has a clue. Now, take a moment and listen to this song . . . then tell me that you think events aren???¦??t cyclical:
In America . . . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSxSc3ylAkg&feature=fvsr
Well, on that note ~ Charlie Daniels sure hit it right on the head. Well, I???¦??ll tell you one thing right now, I have had it with events that are taking place in Washington DC. The previous song came out in the early 1980s when going through high school meant hoping you could find a job when you graduated. Does that sound familiar? Interest rates were about 17% and it was also a recessionary period. Actually, interest rates on credit cards were over 25%. Guess what folks, we???¦??re headed back to the old ???¦?wonderbank???¦? zone. Whether Bernanke thinks he can keep this false sense of security down for much longer is all up to him. Things are going to get tough, and once they get tough, they will get tough fast! Be prepared. The chances are good that the banks will get bailed out again and more and more people will lose their homes (to the banks).
Let???¦??s end on a mild note. How does that sound? We???¦??re all going to pull through. I know because I know one person who is pushing it to the limit to stop the nonsense going on in the Beltway and to align good people directed at bringing America back to speed. I am also aware of many people that bark about the systems in effect and do nothing about it. Nothing.
Here???¦??s one for everyone who needs to pull back from everything they???¦??ve been exposed to in this latest column:

Until next time ~ Peace be with you all, always . . . and in all ways. Please do something. Prove me wrong.
