A MIND FOREVER VOYAGING THROUGH STRANGE SEAS OF THOUGHT, ALONE


This is my second blog.

My first blog chronicled my experiences over three years caring for my dad as he lived through and finally died from Alzheimer's. That is the book that is for sale.

This second blog kind of chronicles of life, what it is like to start your life over in your late 50's. After caretaking, you are damaged, file bankruptcy, and the world doesn't care what you did. After 8 months of unemployment, you wake each day knowing the world doesn't want you. Finally you do find a job, 5 weeks before homelessness, but doing what you did 30 years ago and getting paid what you did 30 years ago. So this is starting over.



The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

FIAT CURRENCY AND THE FUTURE IS PAST

Backed by the Good Faith and Credit of the US Government.  Remember when that line carried some weight?  Now it sounds like a line by a comic on late night TV.  Plus, what it really means is backed by the sweat and blood of American citizens who are responsible for all this debt.

Lots of strange stories circulating of late about money and currency.  What is true, I don't know, much of this is coming from the looney fringe of the 'net, but just because it's from the looney fringe doesn't mean it's wrong.

And, it's time to blame Nixon once again.  Let's go back to a time where dollars were backed, at least partly, by gold and Britain had collected a whole lot of dollars and decided to turn them in for gold and Nixon said, "huh?".  So Nixon took us off the semi gold standard and put us on the petro dollar.  He cut a deal with the Saudi's, whom we've been their bitch ever since, that oil will only trade in US dollars, making the dollar the de facto standard on the planet.  If France wants to buy a barrel of oil from Britain, it has to be sold in dollars.  Canada buys from Venezuela?  In US dollars.

But we've had this international attempt to no longer deal in dollars, since we've been printing dollars like they are toilet paper, and several mideast countries like Iran, Syria, and Iraq, prior to our invasion, have tried to change this petro dollar scheme.  Well, Iraq kind of bit the dust for it, but now China, India, Russia and others are all on board and American is about to get dumped in the toilet.

Plus, apparently, Saudi Arabia's oil fields are now 90% water and 10% oil making Iran the number one country sitting on top of the biggest oil deposits.  Which is why Russia and China are protecting Iran.  Iran is about to become the Saudi Arabia of the 21st Century.

Ann Barnhardt does a wonderful presentation on fiat currencies and points out all you gold people that gold is a fiat currency too.  Once upon a time, in the old days, I'd grow cows and you'd grow veggies.  Then I would want some veggies and you'd want some milk and meat so I'd trade you some cow for some greens.  What developed was a system, let's just call it credits since that is where this is all headed anyways, and I'd sell the milk for 10 credits and the cow for 200 credits.  You'd sell bushels of veggies for 5 credits and now instead of dealing with you directly cause I hate dirt farmers, I would go to a middleman who'd pay me 500 credits for my two cows and 10 barrels of milk.  Then I would take some of my 500 credits and buy some bushels of veggies from another middle man who bought the dirt farmers veggies from him.

It doesn't matter if the credit is bronze, paper, silver, gold, or cow chips; they are all fiat currencies.  But somehow people feel better if said fiat is made of gold, silver, diamonds, or something similar.  Truth be told, there is not much use for gold, whereas diamonds and silver have actual value and use in manufacturing, but gold is gold and people are people and since the dawn of time, we've put a premium on gold.

And for those who think paper is useless, just wait until the SHTF and you have to go to the bathroom, you will start selling a box of ammo for a couple of rolls of toilet paper.

Here is a hint: when the SHTF, and you are at the store, buy toilet paper, tampons, and cigarettes.  Let everyone else fight over food.  They will trade that food to you later for the smokes and tampons.

Point of all this, and remembering Nixon, is China is about to try and pull a major takeover of the world economy and take it's place as the powerhouse of the 21st century. So, how does that opening of China by Nixon look now?  He wanted to open things up with China to scare Russia.  Now, China has all of our jobs, all of our technology, all of our manufacturing, and is buddying up with Russia to kick our asses.  Thanks Dick.  Nixon - The President that just keeps on screwing us from the grave.

What is scary is Obama will go down in history as worse than Nixon, though that history book will probably be in Chinese.

But I hate to break the news to the world, and this is not just some pompous American talking out of his ass - okay, well I am,  but that doesn't mean I'm wrong, world, after you spend a day cheering as America falls, remember that laughter the next day when reality sinks in.

For all of our faults, and Lord they are many, do you fully understand why all you European countries have had it so good the last 60 years?  Why you could have jobs or not have jobs, retire in your 50's and full pay, have free health care, free college educations, and all that sophisticated stuff?  It's because the US was protecting your butts, you knew we protected your butts, so you haven't spent nearly anything close on defense that you would have had to spend if the US wasn't protecting your butts from Soviet Domination. No US and Finland, Sweden, and Norway would have been Russian territory before jet planes flew.  Germany, France, Spain - forget wine, you'd be known for  growing potatoes for vodka, not wine for grapes.

I might be wrong in all of this, you might all be German, not Russian, but the point is that all those socialist dreams of health care, education, and not working were paid for by US taxpayers supporting a war machine to keep the soviets at bay.

But now through stupid american voting, brainwashed americans in front of TV sets thinking some B actor or C actress dancing is entertainment, Americans have become America's worst enemy and nightmare.  Nay, the worlds nightmare.  Because all of you working jobs in Belize, Vietnam, India, etc supporting American products and services, when America falls, your job goes too.  No rich America, no "thank you for calling X, my name is Bob, thank you very much".  So the third worlds climb out of poverty will go right back into poverty with the Americans.  And all those Euro countries will sell their souls to the Chinese machine or risk having to cancel all those retirement plans, health care plans, 30 hour work weeks, and after multiple generations of sucking on a government teet, your people will not be prepared to survive on their own.

And what of China?  They will be kings of the new world junk yard.  Because no one will be around to buy all that stuff they make.  Their theft of technology will be useless because no one will be able to buy smartphones, pads, etc because no one will have money, jobs, homes, etc.  And when Chinese move to the US because, I've warned you about this, China is behind the buying of all of these mortgages the last 5 years, they will need the chinese army to get the people out of their homes, thus destroying the home in the process.  And instead of living in all these nice suburban homes they will be in a burned out war zone.  I hope every american who is going to be dragged kicking and screaming from their homes by our new chinese warlords remembers to turn on the gas and shut off the pilot light on the way out.

And long after we are all gone, here is how it will turn out, unless God intervenes, the Asians will lose because they always lose, in the end.  Asian history is full of the same story; someone gets to power and immediately kills off anyone and everyone who is a treat to his power.  Kills the man, the family, the kids, everything.  And after many generations of wiping out the brave, strong and smart, they are left with a nation of wimps.  In America, many and most will die under Chinese control, but some will survive, in the hills, in the desert, and over generations, the wimpy metrosexual liberal pencil neck bean counting psychotic neurotic sociopathic psychopathic parts of our bloodline will be wiped out and real America will emerge; white, red, black and brown, but will emerge, take parts of the country back, and history will repeat.  It always does.  Nothing new under the sun, as Solomon learned.

Now that I got that off my chest, back to currency.  It's time to reboot.  At the close of business some Friday before a holiday weekend, we reset.  We default on the debt, we announce a new currency backed by our gold, silver, oil, etc.  We come out with a new currency; we announce it is the equivalent of one credit is what was one dollar.  Make it easy on people.  So if you make 50,000 dollars you know make 50000 credits.

It will be dicey, there are problems, need to make sure Russia or China don't invade Hawaii or Alaska, but in the end, the world will adjust and life will go on.  As for countries like Japan and others who are smelling the air and buddying up to the Chinese right now, well, you are on your own.  Good luck.  Especially Japan, China has special plans for you; they still remember your occupation in WWII.

Why do I think all of this lays ahead?  Because it's happened before, over and over, throughout history.  Humanity is nothing but a hamster on it's wheel.

I am sure economists and all the talking heads of the world will mock and laugh at such thoughts, but then, it's those same economists and talking heads that put america's ass in the wringer in the first place, so mock away.  Their ideas and theories produced the cesspool we live in today.  And their ideas and theories are not going to be the solution.

There is a solution, don't you know, and it's in the Bible.

When you can't hear the rhyme and you can't see the reason
Why should the hope remain?
For a man will be tired and his soul will grow weary
Living his life in vain

And who are we to justify the right in all we do?
Until we seek until we find Ammonia Avenue
