Financial Paradise ~~ The Greatest Awakening. . .
I hope you have had a great week. Market action has been very interesting. We???¦??ve seen the biggest losses of the year in both the DJIA and the S&P 500. Losses are going to get much more intense now that it appears the Feds are going to stop propping up an ailing marketing situation with taxpayer money. Bernanke took a couple of steps backwards this week. You can read about what he did following Max Keiser, Karl Denninger, Stacy Herbert or myself on the link pasted beneath this paragraph. You will also want to see what is going on which will effect you, as posted on 321gold.com. There can???¦??t be unemployment numbers (as unreported as they are by the Federal Government) at levels they are reported right now. It???¦??s not even possible. Not when 88 million people are dancing in the streets. They are not dancing with happiness in their minds. They are dancing with guns and protest movements. What needs to improve in order for the economy to get better is to have an increase in jobs! Up to date information can be found right here:
Yeah, right. That???¦??s exactly where all the information can be found as it pertains to the economical circumstances that are taking place, and those which have taken place. Everybody who reads this column should know by now that the ???¦?unemployment numbers???¦? are being FUDGED by the US Govt. The number of people without jobs is over 88 million. The evidence is documented on the previously posted thread. The government does not take into account the people who gave up looking for jobs because they couldn???¦??t find one. The good thing is, people are beginning to ???¦?awaken???¦? to what is going on. They are beginning to ask themselves, ???¦?Who are these individuals that we have elected into office to keep things in order????¦? Well, I???¦??ll tell you one thing, I personally do not believe they were elected by the ???¦?thinkers???¦? in society. We???¦??ll expand on previous columns in just a moment. For now, let???¦??s take a music break. Go get yourself a cup of your favorite beverage as this song is plays in the background . . . turn up your speakers ~
The Sounds of Silence ~ Simon & Garfunkel . . .
Okay, I had a nice drink of bullion while I listened to that song three times. One thing I???¦??ll throw in right now is that if you all purchase these songs or download them for your iPods you will be helping the musicians who sedate our nerves in this economy. Who doesn???¦??t need help in this economy? Warren Buffett? Eventually Berkshire Hathaway will need some help. There is no escape for the wealthy, the poor, the middle class or anyone else from what is taking place in the world. Well there is one. People can learn to love one another again. This fighting crap, come on, give me a break. It has never worked throughout history. We have to be assured that this nonsense stops. That is how economies flourish. Individual continents, states and regions learn how to grow their own economical success through providing for the people. Not killing their people.
Even those who find that they have attained what they perceive as ???¦?success,???¦? will find the period of time we are living in is very challenging. Some have achieved phenomenal things and have ended up right at the bottom of the scale ~ again (during this period). They hammer themselves but the thing is, they are not to blame for what happened. We have had a total lack of understanding by our leaders as to how to handle modern events. Peter Schiff expresses himself quite well as to where things have gone wrong, and where things continue to go wrong. Ron Paul is another, and add to those two Michele Bachmann. I don???¦??t really know enough about Mitt Romney to understand his perspective on things. However, I would vote Mitt Romney into office before I would ever vote for Barack Obama. That???¦??s just my opinion. The next thing Barack Obama is going to do is take away guns or put major restrictions on them. Then the Internet will have restrictions placed on those who write in the ???¦?alternative???¦? media section. My thought is that everyone should have a gun. I have said this once, and I will say it again ~ if everyone had a gun, incidents like 9-11 would have never taken place. Provided 9-11 actually occurred as was reported by the mass media, that is. I am strongly suspecting the way things were reported are not the way things actually happened. However, let???¦??s stick with the markets.
Let???¦??s take a break and listen to another song before I get too worked up to complete this article. This song is about a woman that travelled the world with expectations that the experience would lead her to paradise. ???¦?Oh yes, everything is going to be great when you can experience the world and all of the great things from other countries,???¦? she thought. But reality increases awareness, just listen to the song. . .
Charlene ~ I???¦??ve Been to Paradise. . .
What it all boils down to is that we are running into a situation today where ???¦?paradise???¦? is being blocked off. Try to get on an airplane and feel comfortable about it. Try to go overseas and have your currency exchanged to the local currency when you get to your destination. The chances are high that you won???¦??t be able to convert that paper in your wallet to the local currency of the bank you find on that paved road you just walked on for a couple of miles in order to figure out how you can purchase something to eat.
The American dollar is losing its prominent stance amongst other currencies. The United States Dollar is losing its value amongst other nations. Some nations won???¦??t even consider taking United States Dollars in exchange. How does that make you feel about wanting to take a trip to Austria or Switzerland for a one week excursion? And the Euro (EMU) is going down as fast as the EU (European Union). Now this is going to have a profound impact on the United States of America. Primarily because we have put our fingers in the pie of so many other countries, rather than focusing on our own. Ben Bernanke was supposed to be a professor in Economics. What was he thinking when he thought throwing money out of helicopters was a good idea? He didn???¦??t throw the money to the people who needed the capital for survival . . . instead he threw it to the banks. What did they do with it? They gave their executives higher bonuses while seeking the next fool to put in the White House to follow their commands. That???¦??s right, OLIGARCHS.
Okay, on this thread the markets are covered and most of you that monitor this blog are aware of that. You can all find the address to the blog on the first paragraph in this column. For now, here is another song to ponder. Even when times are tough, we still live. After you refill your cup of coffee, tea, water or whatever it is you prefer. . .we???¦??re going to talk about those most ???¦?apt???¦? to get our country out of this mess we are in. That includes the ridiculous wars we have overseas (which our own leaders from the United States initiated).
Five for Fighting ~ 100 years to live. . .
What we are looking at today is a severe need for ???¦?leadership???¦? in the United States. We are also in dire need of people who speak the ???¦?truth???¦? to the masses. We no longer need those who pay to place pawns into leadership roles. We need the real people to stand up and serve our country and the citizens of this country. That means seasoned and experienced citizens of THIS country. We do not need people who can???¦??t figure out where their birth certificate is located. It doesn???¦??t take a genius to figure out that if a person can???¦??t produce evidence they were born in America, they cannot run for office. Really, if somebody were to challenge me on my birth certificate I could produce it in less than 60 seconds. Why did it take so long for Barack Obama to produce his? I wonder how many people have actually read the Bill of Rights and the Constitution of the United States? I know some who have. And believe me, the number is very low.
When we begin to educate our populace, the problems we face will soon be apparent to the vast majority of those who reside in our nation. We need educators and former students to align themselves. The focal point needs to be to improve knowledge and come to understand the individuals we need to place into office. NETWORKING needs to ensue. We don???¦??t need battles in the streets. We don???¦??t need ???¦?Occupy Wall Street???¦? movements. We need appropriate leadership that curtails the events that have transpired which have led our nation into a dismal abyss of debt:
The end of the world is not near, but for 88 million people in the United States of America ~ it is hard to convince them that the end of times aren???¦??t upon us. There will be some tips that are thought to be helpful for everyone at the end of this article. For now, however, imagine yourself in a restive place in the middle of the desert. You are looking over the landscape and watching the sunset. A few palm trees surround your location and you have a nice trailer you are staying in . . . while a few roadrunners come into the scene. Then the following song comes on as you listen to the radio. . .
Desert Moon ~ Dennis De Young (From Styx). . .
Some of the political leaders I am looking at to get the nation back on its???¦?? feet are Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul and Sarah Palin. Barack Obama might as well jump ship. Somebody made a big mistake with that person. He sure knows how to spend money.
We have a situation where there is potential for an outsider to come in. With the Tea Party movement and the movement against Wall Street that have taken place ~ it is stirring up some interesting events. These events are far from over. If Romney can get the Tea Party on his side, this thing is all over. The democrats can take a permanent vacation. For now, protect your rights and those of everyone you love. For now, stand up and stand tall. Nobody can take anything away from you if you are prepared to battle back at them. After all, won???¦??t they be the ones that picked the fight? It???¦??s like in the movie with Sylvester Stallone ~ ???¦?They drew first blood.???¦? End of story.
Let???¦??s have one more tune for the ending . . .
You know what is really fun in a world that is so distorted ~ MUSIC. Here???¦??s one last tune for all of you that can be dedicated to your spouses, children, friends and whoever you believe might need a little ???¦?push???¦? to make it through trying times. Enjoy . . . (This song is the theme to the movie, Ice Castles. It is about a girl who was training for the nationals in ice skating and ended up pushing herself just a little too far. She ended up wrecking and going blind. However, she had a friend that helped her get back on her skates to win the regional event in her territory.)
Melissa Manchester ~ The theme from Ice Castles. . .
Hey everybody ~
Peace be with you always, and in all ways. I???¦??ll be back ???
