Le Dollar – World’s Reserve Currency? (November 28, 2011)

7          “Why did America invade Iraq?”

8          “. . . .  Why do you ask?”

7          “Why did America join in the bombardment of Libya.”

8          “. . . .  Why do you ask?”

7          “What if something much more subtle is also partly at play.  Look thoughtfully at some snippets of information from obscure sources.  What if there were credible challenges and even direct threats to the dollar’s position as the world’s reserve currency?”

8          “The problem is that America is not likely to invade or bomb some of the countries that are considering the denomination of some transactions in something other than the dollar.”

7          “America may be learning that it cannot invade and bomb its way out of every situation.”

8          “The world still flees to the dollar when it needs a secure haven, yet the flight is motivated by fear not love and may be temporary.”

7          “The breaking point will occur when a critical mass of countries abandon the dollar as the reserve currency.  Enough individuals in power in America realize what will transpire.”

Boycott Big Banks – Vote Your Dollars (November 21, 2011)

X          “The money you withdraw from a Big Bank and deposit in a credit union does not matter to the Big Bank.  The Big Banks get free money from the Federal Reserve.  The Federal Reserve has already given away more than 16 Trillion with no Congressional approval and no prospect of every receiving any of the money.  However, when you withdraw your money from a Big Bank, you are surrendering your serfdom and asserting your freedom.  The Big Bank can no longer fleece you.  All the little fees are little fleas that pester and annoy and destroy you.  The Big Banks are five and ten dollaring you to death.”

Y          “When I moved my money to my local credit union, I was already in the lobby when I thought about applying for a car loan.  They offered the best rate.”

X          “Never borrow money from a Big Bank; only borrow money from a credit union or community bank.  When too many Americans did not deserve credit, the Big Banks and their surrogates fooled them and forced credit on them.  Now when a few deserving Americans desire and deserve credit, the Big Banks are unwilling to lend.  A credit union is willing to loan.”

Y          “The brochure says that I may even be able to apply for a home improvement loan.”

?          “The Bonus Marchers sought what?”

!           “Bonuses owed to them by the government.”

?          “The civil rights advocates sought what?”

!           “Civil rights.”

?          “The women’s rights proponents sought what?”

!           “Women’s rights.”

?          “Those who sought to end the war in Vietnam sought what?”

!           “To end the war in Vietnam.”

?          “Those in the Occupy Movement seek what?”

!           “Simple.  They seek to end a game that is rigged at every step against everyone except a very small elite.  They seek to change a political and financial and legal and schooling scheme that is corrupt and decadent from top to bottom and from right to left.  They seek a build a future but suspect that there is not one.  They seek to replace the current vacuous kleptocracy with a viable democracy.  They seek to start a discussion and a dialogue among equals in an outdoor Academy to supplant the lies foisted on them from those in power.  That type of stuff.”

?!         “They want a fair chance.  I get it.”

U          “A state attorney general represents the people of the state in legal matters.  The attorney general is your attorney representing you as a citizen.  What are all these state attorneys general doing maintaining frivolous litigation against Romney – O’Bama Care?  They are tying up the courts and wasting tax dollars.”

V          “Their acts of commission are matched by their acts of omission.  Too many attorneys general are ready to give immunity to banks for all their crimes and fraud rather than doing their job and taking the banksters to court.  We need to fire the state attorney general before he can do more harm.”

U          “In my state, do we need to fire her or will she do her duty?”

V           “Do we need to fire the Attorney General?”
