It wouldn't be so bad if the bottom line rose like the top line. Gasoline in 1970 was 40 cents a gallon, if I'm remembering correctly, probably less.

So even though wages are falling, prices go up to feed the banksters and the Rothchild family.

Experience demands that man is the only animal which devours his own kind, for I can apply no milder term to the general prey of the rich on the poor.

Thomas Jefferson

I have resolved myself to be happy living a humble life and maintain a positive outlook and seek enjoyment in some 'free' or less expensive pleasures of life, such as family, friends, nature's beauty via travel, and art and being creative.

Here is a new study/slant on this subject..."Money Can Buy Happiness" - in our materialistic lifestyles.

It's all because of the Fed and their power to create money that is borrowed against property.

As more money is borrowed there is no new value added to the system so you have inflation. In order to pay off the debts and the interest more money must be borrowed. This cycle robs everyone who holds dollars, which is the 99%. The others keep very little in cash so they lose less.

Consider how much of the land back then was under debt. How much of it today has no debt? How much more is the National, State, county and city debts where you live?


When all of the money is borrowed it becomes impossible to repay it all because there is interest too. Slowly but surely the VALUE transfers to the wealthiest people and those who work for them.




The other big thing is Fed Policy. This is not controlled by the Gov or anyone else other than the Fed Board. The majority of the Fed Board is elected by the boards of the big banks that hold the voting shares. The boards of the big banks are elected by those big trusts that hold the voting shares and proxies.

This small group of Trusts, owned by the richest families, controls the economy because THEY KNOW THE FUTURE.

They know when interest rates will go up or down. They know when policy will make it easier or harder to buy a home or other property. They know because they select the people who decide what policy will be. And they won't select anyone who doesn't work for them first.


Imagine if you went to Vegas and you knew what the next cards were on the blackjack table. How could you lose?

People that don't gamble still put their money in the bank. What the hells the difference? Oh yeah, for some reason "banking" is legal in all 50 states.
The cards are stacked against us.
The best thing we could do to free ourselves from this system is to not deal with banks period. Cash your paycheck at the bank it's written and do money orders to pay bills.
End of story. People do not need banks, that idea is pure bullshit. The whole system would collapse in 6 months and free your elected "leaders" 37.gif of those evil greed based moneytards who make them dance
If you must purchase with credit, than you really don't need it to begin with.

The money for Credit Card purchases does not exist until credit is employed. The banks create money out of thin air against your ability to pay. These sorts of debts that go against an ability to pay instead of property are the most dangerous.

The Federal Government debt is one of those. They borrow against the ability of the taxpayer to pay.

But what happens when the debt isn't paid? What do the debt holders get to collect?

You can boycott the banks. But it will do no good. The amount that individual banks can loan is directly related to their own capital and deposits. But keeping your money in cash is only a drop out of the barrel.

Where they make the money is on loans. And that won't stop just because you have paper bills in your pocket.
