    Watch: The Fiat End Game: “Our Nation Is In Crisis” (Micro-Documentary)

    Our fiat currency system is terminal, nations around the world are dropping the U.S. dollar as a medium of exchange, central banks are buying gold, and Americans are seeing price inflation during an economic downturn.

    The Fiat End Game explains how we got here and our only way out.

    This is all leading to a collapse in our global fiat currency system.

    The first nation to return to a gold standard, or change their laws to allow competing currencies, will lead the way to a thriving sustainable recovery.

    Just as the Founders started the Declaration of Independence with “We the People,” we need to demand from our Congress and President that we the people want honest money, not worthless paper currency created by the Federal Reserve that has an inherent value of zero.

    The waste, fraud, and abuse starts with an endless supply of money going to D.C.

    If we don’t make the necessary changes now, the alternative will be disastrous.

            My Peeps, don’t believe the propaganda pushed by this film. While I understand the perils of fiat money, the Global GB’s control the precious metals, and when they re-establish metal backed money it will mean the end of YOUR freedom.

            It will mean that the NWO has established control over all metal and all money. Your assets, if you have any, will be digitized, the grazers exorcised by war, famine, and disease, and your productivity (or lack of it) will be reflected in YOUR ability (or in-ability) to purchase anything.

            Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t. BTW the narrator talks about “US” and “OUR money”; but I have never heard a native born American speak in such a heavy British accent.

            The dollar IS under siege by many OUTSIDE forces who call for its demise and hope that YOU will join in their chorus. Why? Why do they want to end the dominance of the Dollar?

            Its just another attempt to reduce America to third world status, destroy the Constitution, destroy OUR dollar and implement the North American Union under UN auspices after DISSOLVING the US Constitution.

            You are smarter than that. Don’t fall for the propaganda.

              The US is ALREADY a 3rd world, banana republic, police state. Maybe you don’t notice it in your back-woods neighborhood, but those of us outside it’s borders do.

              It is a dying nation, reverting to wars to keep it alive, but it cannot even win those anymore and with 3rd world, poor countries like Iraq and Afghanistan. Now the US is facing world war with the big boys and is backing down because those in power know that it would destroy what is left of the US.

                  credit has falsely made us to appear above a third world status…However, we are a third world debtor, and they are discarding our dollars…we borrow about 6 billion dollars from Chinese banks a day to finance big brothers spending..It is only a matter of a short time remaining. Meanwhile people still have the American Dream…The dollars collapse will make this all monoply money and the houses we buy a worthless nightmare. You need a home to live in, so to speak,it takes a lot of brainstorming and smart people thing together to stay level today. Most meanwhile continue to be puzzled. Listening to the mainstream media, and basing poor decisions one after another

                  Marylander: WE are a third world debtor, and the individuals. corporations, and nations that have OUR debt, LOVE OUR debt. Demand for OUR debt is high, which is why the dollar is strong.

                  Corporations, nations, and individuals, park their excess wealth into OUR treasuries. They are an essential financial tool for the Crony Capitalists.

                  That said, Congress wastes OUR money when they spend it, and transfers OUR wealth to third world (under-developed) nations as part of Agenda 21 and the NWO Plan to destroy America; while they (the Global Investment Class) profit handsomely under Free Trade at OUR expense.

                  Free Trade has real costs and you can measure that cost by the $350 Billion trade deficit WE run with China, and the $100 Billion deficit WE run with Mexico. Include the $300 Billion that Illegals cost the American Taxpayer every year and you can see how OUR annual Trillion Dollar Deficit develops so quickly.

                  The media would like us to believe that Americans are living beyond their means, but the truth is that wasteful spending and the subsiding of the Free World (through OUR defense spending) and the transfer of the American means of production to China represents the brunt of OUR costs.

                  Everyone should understand that the Hydrocarbon Industry receives a Trillion Dollar subsidy EVERY year, while oil is close to $100 per barrel. WTF?

                  Engage your employees or be enslaved and impoverished by them. Remember in November.

              The Constitution for all realistic purposes is dead. Only the third amendment stands unperverted by Supreme Court decree. Do you really want the dollar? I don’t, but I have no choice. I convert them soon after I recieve them. The dollar is as good as dead. We are currnetly living under the tyranny of the two party system of elections. There is no separation of powers. Congress writes the law, the president aproves it and the Supreme Court rubber stamps it. Welcome to warrantless searches, indefinite detention and assination by drone prior to trial. Shall I continue? Do you really expect me to fight FOR this? Poppycock.

            Sorry DK but you are sooooo wrong. A gold standard would keep the Govt from printing recklessly and inflating away YOUR money. The dollar has already lost 98% of it’s purchasing power (inflation). This is theft, plain and simple. The dollar is doomed, 100%. It’s days are numbered in months, not years. What happens to your savings when the dollar collapses? Theft. This is going to be the biggest “Wealth Transfer” in the history of the world. If you are invested in paper money (bonds, cash, etc) you will be wiped out. So, it seems that YOU are the moron.

            • durango kidd says:

              SHTFfan: While your statements are correct, they are only part of the equation and your conclusion is wrong. For example, the great wealth transfer has ALREADY occurred.

              In 2007, before the crash, a study by the FED revealed that 90% of the wealth in America was held by 10% of the population. After the crash, the middle class had lost 40% of their remaining wealth.

              Post crash, only the 10% has profited by the stock market run up while the bottom 90%, including the savaged middle class, continued to lose wealth. The dollar is NOT “doomed”. It is in great demand which accounts for its continuing strength; if you bother to read the charts.

              I am not in paper. I am in tangibles, and the only stock I own is in my own companies.

              Whose the moron now? :-)

                Are you under the illusion that the dollar will be in great demand in the near future is delusionary. As we speak the world is starting to dump the dollar which is the prelude to further erosion of monetary value and increased debt. The bankers are laughing because they know the end is near with the fake crap that they print and are using it to buy as much as they can before the headstone is set in place. Yes it is a great wealth transfer and that’s why their corporate media pundits will laugh at you for thinking pm’s are an asset.
                It is good that you are in tangibles but the taxes will still be due and the government ain’t going to take a can of beans on what you owe. However they will take your property as payment if you cannot come up with the metal (that can be exchanged) that has always held it’s value for the past 6,000 years.

                  MqG25: While the dollar will decline in value, must decline in value if jobs are ever to be created in this country again under the Free Trade dynamic under which WE live; it will become another currency in a basket of currencies that will be underpinned by metals.

                  Historically, the US Dollar has accounted for between 55 to 65% of all global trade. It is still currently at the lower of that range. It would be naive to think that in a multi polar, global economy that the NWO is building, that other global currencies like the Pound, Yuan, Rupee, Euro, and Roble, would not eventually share the status of global currency in a basket of currencies defined and supported by metals.

                  The living standard of most Americans will decline.Like always, some Americans will do quite well. The dollar will continue to lose value and anyone who doesn’t want to be counted among the depressed, dissolusioned , and disenfranchised; and who are young enough and so inclined, ought to return to school by borrowing what they need to achieve a much better education and the economic status it will generate.

                  Those dollars will be well spent if you have half a brain and any initiative at all. I understand that an education costs ten times more now than it did when I got mine, but you can roll over and die or you can grab your ass and get moving.

                  There are always opportunities with change if you are smart enough to see them and game enough to engage. There will be winners and losers of course, there always are; but you can’t take it with you so concentrate on how you play the game.

                  Engage!

          @page

          Nope, you still post :) (take a chill pill in place of your meds, I am just kidding)

          @DK- Hey bro, I had personal interactions with Erwin many times. (back in the day) I was working in FL, my $10 phone card drained talking to him, he called me back on his dime and we talked another hour and a half, then I met him in person a few times when I got home. (no, I never bought ANY of his products, and I borrowed one of his books from him)

          Our discussions changed my outlook on this country and the constitution. @Erwin- Thank you!

          He is in JAIL for his beliefs (and many truths).

          As many of us will probably be one day.

          Mrs. Jackson
          Mr. Bannister
          Mr. Schiff

          Old hero’s (to me) and in the anti-tax movement. These are people who took the battle to the enemy, without fully understanding their foe, and have paid the price.

          Remember who owns the courts. (same people who count the votes)

          Remember who brings up charges.(the same people with the blind eyes)

          The blind fold of justice has been used as an a$$ rag for decades now.

          On the frn deal, remember who emits the bills of credit (the same people who collect the illegal income taxes).

          @them guys- Hope you don’t mind if I comment on the question you asked DK.

          Erwin has a little different belief system then ole Jacob (who knows if they are related)

          I am related to people who fought on both sides of the (so called) civil war. So do I believe in states rights(slavery hahaha, what a bull$hit story) or do I believe in the tyranny of a centralized government (preserving the union, hahahah)

          We (the us) invaded many countries to get Mexican pecos (silver coins) because of Jacob schiffs a$$. (his treachery started way before 1917)

          I believe he started the weeds to grow around the tree of liberty, and has sucked all the water, from the roots of that tree, so we have what we have now.

          less rights, endless wars, and paper money.

          May he (Jacob) burn in hell with the rest of them.

        I think Japan will be the one to win the race to the bottom. As Japan goes so goes the U.S. just with a time delay fuse. It will be interesting to see at what point the Japanese bonds start to puke. U.S. bonds have defied logic staying in a bubble as long as they have. So have Japanese bonds. But once they start to crack U.S. won’t be far behind.

                You need to be fully prepared. That includes storing at least a year’s supply of food and water. You also need guns and ammo. A way to cook your food and heat your home. I prefer kerosene stoves and heaters. For toilets we’ll use 5 gallon buckets with snap-on toilet seat lids and kitty litter to cover the smell. After you’re fully prepared then you should keep some of your savings in gold and silver.

                  If the kitty litter runs out, try adding brown matter–unintended joke, sorry–as you would to compost– slower decomposing things like pine needles or twigs, etc. When it’s filled up you can let it sit covered for a couple of years and then you have fertilizer. It’s probably safest to not use it on root vegetables or on things like lettuce where the edible parts might touch the ground. You can find the Humanure Handbook online for free.

                  Another possibility, which I have NOT tried yet but am researching– is letting it rot anaerobically–basically covering it in water and sealing off access to air. Usually people have a rubber lid that balloons outward on top so the methane has somewhere to go. The methane can be used for a stove or just released. It’s called a biodigester system and there are designs and instructions on the web. They look a little complex, but mostly that’s because of the methane-capture feature. I’m sure it could be done with a simple bucket and lid stem with a very small escape hole for methane that would minimize contact with outside air.

                  The rotted fluid or “biogested” fluid can be used as a fertilizer with some care that it is a couple steps removed from food you will be eating. It can fertilize a duckweed pond, which I have going already. The duckweed can be used as chicken feed or as a green manure.

                • Kitty litter would only be practical for short term as it would require a lot of space and expense. Stocking more TP would probably be better. But if you put away some litter for the short term try “Swheat”. It is light weight and made from wheat plants. It is scoopable so it is easliy compostable. You should compost for 2 years when using human manure as you can not be sure about getting the compost pile hot enough to kill pathogens completely. The 2 years time will ensure safety.
                  A cheaper system would be to get a couple bales of wood shavings(not cedar if you plan to use the compost in your garden) and use that to cover the bucket after each use. They come plastic wrapped and in large bales which are compressed so they contain quite a bit of product. You could also go with grass clippings or dry leaves or chopped up weeds , all of which are free but have a higher moisture content. Just some thoughts.

                  I would be glad to agree with you, OutWest, in another day and time, previously.

                  However; there is no government without the people, and now it is relevant that the vast majority of the people have become weak and too worldly to stand up to politicians/governments, for the sake of God’s laws and statutes.

                  If 75% of the population of America is “true” Christian, then why is it legal to “kill/abort” the, alive but unborn babies? Why has Homosexuality become acceptable/legal/promoted in America, when it is still an abomination to God?

                  So just on those two arguments I say; “We are no longer a great Nation. We are a “doomed” nation/society.

                  We “are” a nation in crisis. I think we are no longer seen by God as a nation of light, but a nation slipping into darkness and His saving light toward us is getting dimmer by the day.

                  In other words His hands of mercy and protection are just about removed, because we seek our own way and have taken God out of every equation possible. I see a whipping/chastisement coming upon our “once” great nation. It will lead to the rule of the Antichrist/Satan.

                  Things will continue to get worse, because people either look to themselves, their ancestors, or to the government for their protection and salvation. God did it before and He will do it again. That is, He gives the warnings and then sits back and watches as things go all to hell in a handbasket.

                  The dire warnings began on 9-11, and then again on 9-2008. I think we will see the big finale about 9-2015. Anything happening before that time will be little spankings in comparison.

                  To all “True Christians”, that have prepared, the spankings won’t hurt them. The promises are in the Book.
                  Have we read them?
                  What does it profit a man to gain the world by riches/gold/silver; if he looses his soul? Just asking?

        I was wondering how the change-over would work. For example, If my rent is $600 a month and my landlord will accept PMs, will I have to give up a quarter ounce gold coin and a half, at $1600 per oz?

        Or will the value be more like when gold was the standard, when rent was more like $20 a month and gold was less than $100 oz. I just don’t want to get ripped off because I didn’t know any better.

            Good point Rick. Gold was first given a specific weight and measure to get the label “1 dollar”. Conversely, a dollar was determined by a specific weight of gold. Today we determine the worth of gold’s weight by what the FED has determined the value purchasing worth of their fiat dollar. So as the dollar inflates, it looks like gold is going up (and I’m sure it is based on supply and demand) but using the FRN as the gauge of gold’s worth is just silly.

          And the BRICS nations have set up development for a bank to directly compete with the IMF (international monetary fund).

          @Jim,
          I believe if you follow the Chi-com’s you will have your answer. The most recent country to agree to accept the “Yuan” in direct currency swap, was Australia a few weeks back.

          The “Dollar’s” day as the world reserve currency is definitely coming to a close. The BRIC’s have already dumped the “U.S. PetroDollar”. And in all honesty who can blame them. Any country that is willing to devalue their currency in what Peter Schiff refers to as the great : “race to the bottom”, deserves what they get. “Helicopter Ben” and the Fed are managing the greatest wealth transfer in recorded history. The U.S.A. middle class will never shed the shackles of indentured servitude. Eventually you are looking at a currency default, reset, false flag, WW3 (call it when you see it)Because the Idea that you can “BORROW YOUR WAY TO PROSPERITY” was f-ing retarded yesterday, and will be just as f-ing retarded tomorrow. We sure know how to elect them.

          We as a country are to far in debt to ever recover; closing in on 17 trillion (that they admit to, I have seen numbers ten X that amount tossed around when unfunded off book liabilities are considered).

          If this somehow does not “ring true” I would love to hear your take on it. I personally believe hard assets like tin cans filled with food, and lead, will more valuable than gold or silver; but hey, for the time being it’s still a free choice.

            Aren’t bloomberg and wall street journal part of the MSM’s? With such huge demands to buy gold, why isn’t “supply & demand” rules causing prices to Rise massivly? Supply verses demand is a religious belief to some folks. What went wrong? Gold has dropped alot. It should have gone UP alot based on supply vs demand right?

            Unless the banksters also rig gold prices too. Then whats to stop them from dropping gold prices way more?

            And if you believe in biblical stuff such as four horsemen etc, then you likly also believe in the 666 mark stuff too right. Well if that stuff becomes Fact and true, it says folks CAN BUY or sell as long as they accept that “mark 666″ right. So That means there WONT be anything such as unavalability to buy things. As long as you take that mark of course. But not any Lack in stuff to buy.(how can they entice folks to accept their Mark 666 unless there is something They offer? as in Stuff avail to Buy).

            Also how can any such 666 system operate in halting folks from buying or selling stuff without that 666 mark..”IF” things such as Cash and gold are allowed still?

            Nobody can ever control all worlds folks from buying or selling of anything unless they also totally control the “unit” used to buy with. Only One thing we know of is possible= Cashless debits. And even That fails to halt buying or selling unless all OTHER forms of cash etc and gold are banned or made Useless totally. Think about it all. What other posibility exists.

            My belief is yes I agree with the biblical versions. Weather or not you do matters not if TPTB use that method to control ALL forms buying and selling. If they do go to cashless and debits(computers debits) Nothing else will matter. That includes GOLD too as well as Silver.

            One fed law or Worldwide Law that Bans all forms barter too and with severe prison or Death penalty attached and good luck with barter too. Barter will then Only function with Close Known pals and in Close to You areas.

            Good luck getting stuff shipped across the nation or from Other nations by use of Barter or Gold or Cash if such a cashless world bank system becomes operational aka 666 Mark system. I am jusy saying is all. Think of whats written and How can it come to pass? There are Not a hundred different methods to make such system work right?

        If the Bible and christianity are correct, there will Not be any so called re set untill Christ returns and it will be He who Re sets it all. It wont matter how many folks go hide in some cave or hiddy holes in the woods or mountains waiting to emerge and re set it all. That will simply be a huge wasted effort. There are also verses describing those type folks and what will happen to them. Look it up you may find it interesting perspectives.

          The Lord knows exactly how each one of us will die.

          This should give each of us comfort until that day comes. When morning comes, get out and work and prepare. Work to pay debt down, or even be debt free. Also, learn your food and water supply. Perenials are at the top of my list to learn.

          Also work to share. Sharing now will make it easier to share later. When sharing, I don’t mean to the freeloader, I mean to people whom are trying as well.

          What you referring to is Revelation 13:16-18 A world religeous/political/military/financial World government/dictatorship that will cause all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond to recieve a mark IN their right hand or in their foreheads 13:17 and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, You know about 300-500 years ago millions of Christians died under the popes inquisition because they refused to acknowledge his authority on earth (antichrist). These christians that were martyred trusted in Christs merits alone for salvation (forgiveness from all unrighteousness & the guilt of past sin) because a sinner can only be saved by grace through faith Ephesians 2:8 not by religeous works or popish indulgences. So the most important PREP you can make is to receive this free grace by confessing your sins to God and to ask him to cleanse you by the blood of Jesus Christ his only begotten Son. All those who have not done so & survive what I believe will be the greatest series of cataclysmic events since the flood will somehow eventually be won over to recieve a digital implant IN the right hand or imprisoned with a digital implant IN the forehead only true christians who are written in the book of life with the help of God alone will overcome Ex 33:16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so whall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.

          Ah, yes, the Mark of the Beast.

          I’m not super religious either–mostly because I can’t sit still like that in church– but this prophesy stuck with me and there are plenty of indicators that this is where we are heading. It is clearly what corporations want and what our security state apparatus would like.

          If this is how things do play out, then it would have to be a controlled or orchestrated type of collapse. Scary enough to cause mass panic, but not the kind of chaos that would prevent the organization of the new microchip control system.

          There is a lot to consider here if one does believe this prophesy. You can be as prepped as you want to be, but how can you pay your property taxes and stay on the homestead if you are not part of the system? That’s the one that has me wondering most. But then there is a question of whether the US is part of the prophesy, which opens a big can o worms which we probably don’t need to get into here…

      Off topic again but I just can’t hold it in, don’t know if you would call it hypocrisy or exactly what you would call it. But I live in what would be called a Coservative State and as many States it has an open carry law, which I do, I open carry 7 days a week and carry in all locations that are legal. But to make a short story long, I went to a gun show today and they brought my blood to a full boil at the door, fist thing they did was have me remove the magazine and unload the gun, which is a 1911 and they placed a zig seal through the action and placed a sticker on the grip to show it was sealed. I carry this weapon into Wal Mart, Mickey D’s even in to the Bank where I live, I even wore it when I went to vote against Obammy, and I have wore it around all the LE where I live, and never once have I been asked to unload it, and now of all places, a gun show no less, I’m not trusted to carry a loaded weapon. I can understand why they would check guns that were being carried in for show or sale, for safty sake, but not one being worn for personal protection. I’m sure I’ll hear all the reasons such as liabilty, but all of the other places that I named could use the same excuse. Still Burning! Trekker Out.

            So M Trekker, did you walk around the gun show with a 1911 with a zip tie through the action a sticker on the grip? Why not leave it in the truck? ( you do drive a truck,right?) . Count your blessings. Here in Commyland, er, Maryland, no concealed carry unless you have a good reason. ( and trust me, you don’t according to these fuckers). The law says you can carry a long gun open, but I call that ” suicide by cop”. Currently , background checks are 60-90 days plus( they have just went de-facto gun ban). And in Sept or October, you’ll need a special license to purchase. This should be fun. The only reason I don’t leave this godforsaken shithole of a state,is I want a front row seat when SHTF. This state is either government or welfare. And lookout, that pointy eared piece of shit , Martin O’malley, our fine pinko governor , wants to run for president.

          I don’t know if you’re mistaken or lying. Either way, you’re wrong. There are few ADs at gun shows. VERY VERY VERY VERY few.

          Now, if you consider parking lots and dumbass inspectors, yeah, it happens occasionally. But, a gun show, as far as getting shot, IS THE SAFEST PLACE ON PLANET EARTH.

          Don’t BS us here. You may have an opinion but that needs to be based in fact. Please, show me links to articles about discharges at gun shows? I only know of 3 within the last year. Those have been mainly due to the buying frenzy of new gun owners. Before Sandy Hoax, it was much lower. Inexperienced gun owners are a little less careful.

          Everyone talks about discharges but nobody can ever come up with any. They’re all just in your mind.

        • Its funny, though, when you think about it: the CC gives you an advantage against what most people consider “The Good Guys”. In reality, those “Good Guys” are the ones that are the problem.

          There is a time and a place of CC and a time and a place for OC. The thing that irritates me are those that never concede that fact.

          I love CC! I do it all the time in places I am not supposed to be “C” at all! My argument: Police kill and injure more people than murderers. They can carry openly, everywhere. Why again is their self defense more important than my own? There are so very few private citizens that CC or OC that accidently or inappropriately hurt or kill someone that the statistic is virtually non-existent.

          …yet, cops murder, kill, injure and terrorize people all day long. And still, the laws are for me, not them.

          Huh? Am I living in backards world? Apparently so.

          If you REALLY want to reduce gun deaths, take them away from the police. You’ll find that a lot of crime goes away *AND* a lot less people are injured or dead from cowards with guns shooting people and pets for no reason.

          I’d put a few links in to prove my point, however, once I get started, I can’t stop and I’d piss off everyone because the link list would go on FOR-FUCKING-EVER.

          Para as you may know,I live in Wyoming and this gun show was in Riverton, Wy. As I often hear people say they carry concealed because they don’t want to be a target. Well I have no problem with carring concealed if that is your choice, but many states have open carry laws and very few people carry open, which seems to say there is no reason to allow open carry because no one does it. This is one of the reasons, they can pass restrictive laws. I’m old enough to remember when the big push was on to ban hand guns, because few people owned hand guns. Well you don’t hear that so much now because many people have hand guns. Now they’re primarly after hi cap mags and so-called assualt weapons. They always take one step at a time! As for being safe with a gun, I guess if your unsafe at a gun show your unsafe everywhere. So what do you think, maybe we should take peoples guns? As for leaving it in the truck, it ain’t gonna happen!Rick,I can sure break the zip tie and put in a magazine alot faster than I can get to the truck. And on a sorry note, I’m with Eisenkraut, carry it everywhere or quit talking about how tough your gonna be when they come for your guns. One more point before I shut up, with open carry I have had the opportunity to discuss the 2nd Amend with a number of people including some youngsters.

              Not exactly. He could live by Pinedale or Afton. Or possibly Tensleep. But lets hope and pray not Wamsutter. If he lives in Wamsutter, then he is goofy. (Just joking).

              I say Wamsutter cause of old days. Back when I was 19-23 I travelled those areas and I had to stop at Wamsutter several times for gas. Back in those days, it was just billion miles of sagebrush and then finally this damn gas-station in middle of nowhere. Who the hell would live there? Friends, Wamsutter was only a gas-station. That was it!

              This guy was funny. He charged heftily for gas cause you could walk miles to Rawlins or miles to Rock Springs, or you could buy gas from him and travel on. He was an onry old-fart. But I did stop and had a beer or a fresca, as Fresca was popular in those days. When you approached Wamsutter, you sweared it was a mirage because who in heck would have a stand in this area. He did.

              I cannot remember his name, but when I drove passed that area about 5 years ago it was boarded up and totally deserted. It kind of reminded me about the ‘olds’ of Route 66.

      • People who insist on OC are a special breed. A good breed. A necessary breed.

        Now, at this gunshow, you have been taught the value of CC. I’m a big OC advocate but I see the value in CC when necessary.

        But, realize this: it is within the property rights of the show organizers to bar the carrying of weapons. They’re not like when you are on your own land (Yes, the streets and public property are *OUR* own land) and your own government restricts your rights, that runs afoul of the 2A.

        So, they really said “They have security personnel” for that? Really? Wow! I would have said, “Oh, you mean like the cops that take 20 minutes to show up after you’re dead?” In reality, many pro-gun people are not any smarter or have thought through more these issues than their anti-gun counterparts, they just don’t have the psychological problems dealing with guns that the anti-gun people do. They’ve never really “thought” about it, they just aren’t scared of guns.

        I just don’t like people that break the law. The biggest breakers of the spirit and letter of the law are the ones that supposedly write and enforce the color of law they pass off as law. They break it with impunity and reqularity. Your gun show organizers were simply thinking of safety. I don’t have a problem with what they required you to do. You must also realize there is no way the organizer has any way to know or control the safety aspect of your loaded weapon. So, again, it really all boils down to control and the show organizer demanded it. It was, however, at least, lawful for him to do so.

        Were I you, I would have said, “Oh, sorry, I’ll go put it in the truck.” and stuffed it under the seat and stuck my LC9 in my jacket pocket and headed back in. I carry, chambered and ready, at all gun shows just like I do in all places. My life and my safety is more important than anyone’s color of law firearms prohibitions. The best agent for my security and safety is me.

        I’m glad you made your voice heard. Maybe the organizer will take notice. I doubt it. Like I said above, the difference between pro-gun and anti-gun is in the unreasonable fears about guns. It does not guarantee an IQ bump or any distinct amount of thoughtfulness about the subject. Maybe you planted a seed. Thanks!

      I don’t care what any one says! No precious metal will be more valuable than copper and brass in a shtf scenario. The more bullets the better. I’d say 1000rds per rifle, 250rds per shotty and, 150rds per pistol and that’s the minimum. More is always better. Honestly I’d say the hell with gold and silver. In a shtf situation it will not do any good. It’s more to worry about and people get wind of it you may waste precious rounds on stupid thieves and be really up the creek when a true threat or threats come a knocking. If you can afford gold you can afford more ammo. Go with the ammo. Stay alive out!

        I agree, but problem I have is availability… I’m smack dab in the mid-west, and our shelves are bare… and if you are lucky to stumble into a delivery window, we’re limited to 3 boxes or one “value pack”.

        So… rather than keep my spare money in toilet paper fiat money, or in a bailed out, crook run bank, I think pm’s are a safe alternative. And if I need emergency cash, I run down to the local coin shop, and he trades me fair market value back to green tissue paper.

        But you are right, in a Mad Max scenerio, bullets, beans, and a whole lotta praying will serve ya better.

They had 40 & 38 all week, Still short 22 & 223. but everyone in line, plus, when they unloaded the weekly truck could get a brick of 22. Manager said he had had AR”S for sale every day for the last 4 weeks and his supply of guns was close to normal. Still low on reloading stuff.

        no b.s. , a typical modern gun fight shoot-out average # of bullets fired is 50 rounds per shooter .

        Some gun fights in the 1000′s of rounds .

        if you run out of ammo first , guess what happens to you and your children … ?

            my observation from investigating it as i have for the last 4 years is it is to be Slow Decade Long – Deteriorating Economic Collapse here in ZOG AMERIKA …

            they’ve plans for ZOG AMERIKA to be at WAR till the year 2050 … even if the dollar suddenly croaked from global refusal to use it anymore as a viable currency … the Feds would install fixed prices on all goods for sale in ZOG AMERIKA to ensure mass riots don’t start .

            thats their biggest fear that the riots would become so large they’d lose control of whole cities and eventually states .

            so i’m pretty sure the ammo will return first ;0) .

            it may cost $5.00 bucks a round but it will return first .

            HYPERINFLATION IS COMING ONE WAY OR ANOTHER they can no longer avoid it , only try and postpone it !

            STOCK UP NOW WHILE YOU STILL CAN .

Lastly, How many did you hit with that 300 rds? NO ONE! The US Army is the most wasteful of ammo in the history of the world. Ask your snipers how many they shoot, in combat, in a day. Any civilian that sets up to fight army style is dead.

          Sorry I disagree. I have that much ammo, but I’m nuts. As I have said before everyone shoots 5 people, the country is down to about 10 million, These huge firefights are not going to happen. To much TV, The whole Indian wars didn’t have a dozen major battles. The people who might come after you, in your home, have 6 rounds, plus what they steal from you. You start shooting, they go away. Find something easier. Almost nobody will shoot 50 rds in combat conditions. In the whole country we don’t hear of one or two fights that big in a year. Shooting starts, people run, especially when they know even a small wound is likely deadly. If you are sleeping at the switch you won’t get to shoot, If you are ready and careful, 5 rds is plenty. Doesn’t mean I don’t have 30 rd mags up the wazoo. But do the math these big ongoing firefights cannot last even weeks.

            If things go to a shooting stage here, it will likely end up like the Balkan war. It seemed to be one long running gun battle that is fought between small groups of people running into each other, some on purpose, some by accident. Not major long engagements, except by existing military units fighting on either side.

            I think you and 3n3my both have very good points and it’s hard to know what will happen. There probably won’t be ongoing onslaughts of armed gangs with unlimited ammo because, eventually, enough people die. But, there will be some firefights. How many people in rural areas have guns and are buying up ammo but haven’t actually prepped? I think there’s a lot. And they can replenish their stock or expand their power base whenever they take over someone’s homestead and weapons. These people could be causing problems for a long time and they could actually win, forming little fiefdoms of thuggery. In which case, the only way to make it in the long run against that is to go along and pay one’s tribute.

            But, if roving gangs are not able to consolidate power, I look around where I live and I still see there will be an ongoing problem with the “druggy trash” boys as 3nemy3 calls them. They might not starve here right away because there’s enough pilfering to keep them going a very long time. I’m in an agricultural area in Hawaii. Pilfering and agricultural theft already happen. The thieves have a place to live. They’re mooching from their grandparents because they’re addicts or mom and dad are addicts, and they just steal sh*t from their neighbors and pay for groceries with their welfare debit cards. So, more of the same when the welfare stops, with home invasions increasing as things get worse. If they get caught, they’ll get shot, but a lot of these druggies are practiced thieves and if they are a different racial background from you, it complicates things. Bullies bully and control everyone around them so you don’t just go up against the one or two little thugs, you go up against all of their families and friends. It could be nice to have a lot of rounds for defensive purposes to last a long time in this case.

      Let’s put on the thinking cap (7 1/4, tinfoil) and see if we can figure this out. Suppose you were a NWO commie bankster thug, and you wanted to squeeze all that wealth (created and held by the middle class) back into your own pockets, where, of course, you know it rightfully belongs.
      You could keep a few wars going constantly. Wars are always good for cranking more wealth back to the top, since you already own all the munitions corporations. Plus, the only people who die in your wars are the sons of poor white people and the darker shaded sons from various uninteresting places on the globe. In other words, NOT your own spawn (you’re saving them to take over the family business of running the world) So, constant wars…check.
      You could weasel your way into permanent political power, simply by owning the rotten souls of the peon political class. That’s easy enough, considering the stupidity and ego of the wanna-be politicians. All you gotta do for them is let them dress up in suits and sit around in fancy buildings, calling each other ‘My esteemed colleague’ or ‘Mr. President’, ‘Mr. Prime Minister’ and such. And give them a jet to fly around in (paid for by the serfs), and the occasional intern to diddle, and they’re happy. It don’t take much to satisfy the political class. So, eternal political power…. check.
      Then, with that power, you could counterfeit as much fiat currency as you want. And it’d be LEGAL! And, best of all, the serfs are willing to work for the useless stuff! How cool is that!? Counterfeiting apparatus…check.
      Also, with your store-bought political power, you can pretty much control all other aspects of the serf’s lives. Just keep the masses supplied with television, (sports and porno are useful), drugs, and junk food and they’re mostly docile.
      The rowdier ones you’ll have to pay off with free cocopuffs and free fiat to purchase crack with. Here’s the genius of this part- The serfs are the ones paying for the cocopuffs and the crack money! Awesome! No coin out of your pocket! Oh, and throw in a few things like letting the serfs kill their unborn babies, worship trees, and sleep with goats (or whatever) and almost all of them are quite co-operative. So, control of masses…check.
      Of course, you’ll also have to keep them brainwashed. But, since you OWN the airwaves (by virtue of your politicians), and you OWN all the media outlets and schools, that’s easy as pie! Propaganda and Brainwashing…check.
      Of course, there may be a few disgruntled sheep who wake up enough to see a bit of what’s being done to them. And they might even become violent. So, once again, you use your purchased legislative power, along with the propaganda arm. You turn all gun owners into pariahs and lunatics with the media. And use your gestapo to make a public example of the few who do turn violent. Eventually, you’ll need to disarm them all, but that’s easy too. The media will brainwash almost all of the people to insist on gun confiscation. And, they’ll gladly turn in their neighbors who don’t disarm. Control of the use of force…check.
      Looks like your little world utopia is going well. But wait. There’s still millions of serfs who keep working their butts off, or inventing a popular product, and creating (and hogging to themselves) more wealth than they should. The danged middle class is still there! It’s shrinking, but not nearly fast enough. What are you going to do?
      Here’s an idea- All the third world countries have been absorbed into your empire. Some cultures just seem to be easier pickings than others. But those western Europeans, the cranky Australians, Canadians, and, worst of all, the Americans, just keep finding ways to earn and keep more than the daily minimum survival in wealth. Some of them even have the audacity to buy gold and silver! And the damned Americans; they still think they should own guns! How dare they?!
      Here’s a plan that might work; lets bring the third world to them! Yeah, that’s it! We’ll just import enough third world immigrants to water down their numbers. A quarter million a year into Canada, twice that into most western European countries, and maybe 5 or 10 times as many into America! We’ll have the natives outnumbered in no time! They’ll ALL be third world nations. Then, it’s simply the same plan as elsewhere. Rinse, repeat. Before the decade is out….there won’t BE a middle class anywhere on the planet! Whee! This world conquering stuff is fun!

        • SmokinOkie says:

          I know, Rick. The whole comment was a bit depressing, but I figured it ought to be said. It seems to me that every nation that has (or had) a thriving middle class, was also a little slower to be taken over by the Globalists. The propaganda had to be done more slowly. And those developed prosperous countries would’ve been much harder to take by force than, say, Uganda or Laos.
          The prosperous cultures had better communications, transportation, and (to some degree) an idea of self-determination among the populace, that the poorer countries didn’t.
          Just a hunch, but I think the NWO boys were tired of waiting and wanted to speed up the plan. Mass immigration serves that purpose in several ways. It creates friction between the natives and the newbies. That provides the excuse for greater government control to maintain ‘law and order.’
          Plus, the huge influx of refugees/immigrants drives down the cost of labor. Hence the lower standard of living for everyone, which is exactly what the gangsters want.
          And, in the past 20 yrs there’s been a massive shuffling of peoples around the world. Refugees by the millions have changed the very cultures into which they’ve been injected.
          Not trying to insult the migrants, but, when they arrive in large numbers in a short amount of time, they tend to pull the host nation down toward the living standard of their former homes.
          When they trickle in over time, they assimilate and join the higher standard of their new home nation. Faster is better, if you look at it from the globalists point of view.
          Another benefit (for the NWO) is the ability to spread diseases to any and all points on the planet. That’ll come in handy when they decide to thin the herd. Not saying any of this is right or good, of course. It’s just the way I see it.
          There is one other point, and it relates to the article above. (imagine that, okie saying anything on topic :) )
          Another version of the evil plan, which doesn’t require immigrants or mixing of cultures, is to simply impoverish the masses by inflation and engineered economic crashes. This basically returns most of the wealth held by the middle class, back to the gangsters on top. I believe that is what we are already seeing, it just hasn’t hit high gear yet.
          I’m beginning to think the globalists are getting tired of the bubble/crash routine, and are designing a future where that won’t be needed. That future is a world where every nation is third-world status. The saddest part of that, is that every one of us, native or newbie, basically loses our cultural identity…. :(

            Right on the money. It’s too late to turn back now. The immigrants, legal or not, are here by the millions. Some say the total of illegals/non-citizens, now stands about 50 million and most of those are sucking the bottom out of the taxpayer’s nest egg.

            It’s not just Mexicans. If it were, we could possibly put the lid on the big Genie bottle and move along. It’s the others that come here to do harm and get a free ride. Hence muslim extremists coming from all parts of the world.

            as a side note: For some curious reason, I tuned into the
            China News channel yesterday. It seems as though the Chinese powers are working overtime to bring Germany and Sweden on as major trading paetners. Japan is investing heavily into the Burma Myanmar economy.
            Burma is a country rich in precious stones, oil, natural gas and other mineral resources. In 2011, its GDP stood at US$82.7 billion and was estimated as growing at an annual rate of 5.5%
            Are the Asians getting ready for a decline in the North American market? Seems to me they are already looking elsewhere.

            Smokin Oakie, you have managed to state in your two posts an amazingly insightful, thorough, and horrifying scenario of what seems to be taking place under our noses. There is only one minor thing that I would quibble with. You mention the spread of disease to intentionally “thin the herd”. Thinning the herd implies that most of us except for some unfortunate souls, will make it through. My crystal ball tells me it will be more like a massive crisis of eugenics where the majority will be “selectively reduced”.

            There are too many people that don’t contribute to the bounty the NWO wants to keep for itself. Young able-bodied slaves will be saved but older people (like 79 million aging baby boomers) present too many problems. They expect a good income, a nice lifestyle, and will soon be retiring. What possible good are they to the NWO? How about the sick, elderly, and anyone in need of special resources such as soldiers wounded in action?

            The Georgia Guidestones tell us the capacity of the world is a 1/2 billion, so 93% of us have to go. How will they do this? Agenda 21, weaponized vaccines, fluoridated water, GMO foods, depleted soil, extinction of the bees, peak oil, the dwindling supply of fresh drinking water, chem trails, HAARP, EMP, Carrington Event; there are many ways to deal with the 93%.

            Those of us living in remote self sufficient communities won’t be depriving the NWO of anything, so I think they might be OK. On the other hand, these communities won’t be providing anything to the NWO so they might not be OK. Either way the prospects for those living in cities and suburbs don’t look so good in a grid down situation.

            That appears to be the plan, alright.

            What never made sense to me, though, is this: Just WHO is going to buy all the crap that keeps them rich when everyone is dirt poor?

            Is it possible they are just stupid with greed and hubris and that there is no grand plan? Or, is there a bigger driver than greed, for example, a managed die-off and scale back due to resource problems (peak everything) which could not be managed unless everyone was brow-beaten into submission first?

            An aside: Respectfully, allowing abortion and gay rights is not how they stay in power. Getting people all emotional over it is how they cause people to strongly identify with one or the other political parties and vote for that party (rather than revolting). I’m sure 98% of us, me included, have been suckered into this scheme. Meanwhile, both parties manage to get past these differences and act together to pass NAFTA and Patriot Act, etc., on a Friday night before Christmas recess.

Allow a few people to make it big and move up (then steal their money back) to keep the illusion that it isn’t all determined ahead of time.

    16. Indulge me for a moment while I share a nightmare I had last night. Southern California was invaded, immediately following a tsunami-like event (we weren’t home on the east coast with all our supplies) and something was sprayed that immediately killed every single person who was outdoors. There were also Chinese on our handheld radios. When I stepped outside, saw the dead bodies and smelled the agent used – BAMM! I woke right up.

      Although I’ve always known it, I immediately internalized how easy it would be to eliminate a ton of people without having to fight… It’s a much easier order to follow by pilots spraying above (or drones) than for boots on the ground to shoot Americans, as long as they’re spraying far from their home towns (if it’s even American soldiers doing the spraying).

      p.s. Really weird: I’ve had multiple dreams throughout my life that have come true. The details were somewhat different but the outcome was the same. Four examples: I dreamt years ago about the drones over our cities; about microphones along the strip in Vegas before they actually planned and announced them; decades ago I dreamt about carbon monoxide filters being used in public places like they’re now doing in Mexico City and other places; and I’ve dreamt about the microwave-type weapon they now have, about six months before it was made public.

      It was just a dream… but I’m going to make sure our masks/respirators are in excellent condition and that we’re skilled at sealing our location.

      • GV,you may be on to something here. When I was growing up in central California, my father had his own flying business. He was a crop duster. He told me once that another pilot had crashed. The pilot survived the crash, walked away from the plane but then fell over dead. The spray tank had ruptured and the pilot was soaked in the spray up to his waist. The spray entered the body through his skin and killed him. If there were some sort of disease going around, the gov could say that the insects were spreading it and we need to do spraying – like California use to do the mosquito abatement spraying – don’t know if they still do as I don’t live there anymore. Anyway, the population might even accept the spraying as a help, not knowing that it would kill them in mass numbers.

          I am not Daniel, but I will take a shot at your dreams.

          Those dreams have some reality in them. Nerve gas sprayed aerially can take out millions in a hurry and then dissipate. By dissipate, I mean it is a very lethal gas, does its job in about an hour and then becomes environmental friendly.

          That type of technology is cost effective. It saves tax-payers monies as drones, civil war, and ground troops cost trillions. Just pray, spray, and then play–you can do all of that in just one day.

          Drone spots an American Bugging-out, thus sprays. Then flies to another locale and sprays some more.

          The dreams are terrible ones, but probabilistic. Who knows what the future holds, but your dreams may hold some of those keys.

          But lets have better dreams, such as those of Peace and also of America becoming strong economically again. We can only dream.

    17. Be informed says:

      The activity on the Nazca plate has been so intense on the western borders, yet still nothing in South America or Central America. This morning yet another one southeast of Easter Island. This is a strange one in that every earthquake after this one has lead to ONLY two areas that have been hit multiple times. Southwest China to Burma/Nicobar Islands, Banda Sea to Soloman Islands. These areas are extremely suspect for something in the range of 6.8-7.8. A couple of other areas that could hit once was northern Japan and south of New Zealand.

      Here is what is so irritating. If I can predict these earthquakes without the benefit of a supercomputer like that the USGS and other government agencies have, they know also what is happening. These bastards would let the New Madrid, Cascadia, and/or the San Andreas break, and be near certain that it would and not even give an advisory that seismic activity was on the rise and there was a chance of something occurring. Not even some sort of imminent quake coming, just issue a slight chance of something. Those MF’s would not even do this to save people that are more than worth it, at least give them an idea that something is possible. That is why I say to the government FU.

      The government does the same manure with the economy, everything is fine, the stock market is flying, and it is time to invest. Doesn’t matter that the volume sucks and any major event could cause a 30% shutdown in one day and someone could lose their shirt in a cuple of days of trading, more like sell off. The government knows and yet they don’t only not warn people, they actually encourage doing what is hazardous to your financial health and sometimes your life.

      The government will encourage you to visit a seismic zone ready to go, because of tourism. Even if they know that a visitor could die, they would let you risk your life for a few bucks of revenue. To any government that would do this, FU. There is something called have a conscience, and payback in some form from the universe, God, whatever. Yet the governments of the world continue this hiding of what is really happening in so many aspects of everyday life. Again FU governments of the world, you suck and deserve absolutely none of our respect.

        BI: so why does the Same gov perps warn folks about huricanes and tornados? Just curious is all. Seems logical if they fail to warn of quakes so people will die? Why warn about those other events?

        Besides unless anybody can predict a quake the same as tornados with a minimum 15+ min warn time in advance, what real good does it do to warn of potential quakes yet unable to say xact area to flee from or Where else to flee that will surely remain safe?(I mean if the best quake warning is 2-3 weeks Out it may occure? what should folks do about it? Move away till 3 weeks goes past? to Where? It isn’t very practical right.)

        I mean there is a big difference from quakes effects compared to more isolated tornado or huricane events right? Even if a quake can be predicted 15 min Prior to occureing. Where or which direction should folks run to?

        At least for a huricane or tornado it is way more isolated areas. Even then at least for tornados they too sometimes skip and jump to other areas so it wont do any good to run away. Except for the Main area like last week in OK occured. But if instead a quake hit there in OK, even going into buried shelters can be deadly, depending which direction quake crack follows right?

        I just think maybe for some things the gov likly thinks its worse to post an alert without valid directions as to What or Where to go next, as that can cause worse panic etc which can cause worse troubles or deaths too right.

        We cannot always just say This means That, and That means This…So…That over there Must mean abc because what else can it mean? It could mean something we aint even thought of right. There don’t always have to be an answer is what I mean. Always a Reason? Yes! always answers? No. or not any we are always able to figure out.

        BI, I hope you get what I am saying here, as I do not mean it in any bad way. Just am considering a few things I mentioned here is all. To me it makes not much sense to why the same gov will alert for one thing yet not another if that gov wants folks dead or harmed. Why any alerts if so?

        Let me first say I am in the boat that PMs are very low down on my prep list.

        But, I do believe it is super obvious that PMs in general but silver especially are undervalued. I do not see coincidence in bad economic times and low PM value but obvious conpiracy to divest the public of inherintly valuable matierel. Savings are for emergencies and if you need money then do what needs to be done but I would suggest that your PMs be the last thing you liquidate. I truly feel they have nowhere to go but up. Unfortunately real market forces seem to have less and less power on our ecxonomy and it is possible that we will never see reality reassert it dominance until after whatever is coming down the pipe gets here.

        I am assuming you are over 65 years old. I wouldn’t buy anymore gold or silver. I am 52 and what I buy this year will be it….

        I will focus on debt because whatever debt I pay off is an immediate monthly raise for me. If I can live better with $1,500 in less monthly bills; then guess what, I just got a raise and an immediate return on my investments.

        Save your gold and silver. When that day comes, give it away to your family (unless you need it).

        There are other things you can leave for your family, such as tools, an old F-150 that runs, pictures, knowledge, etc.

        My grandmother left me with some silver spoons. They are never for sale. She left me with a bunch of wisdom and a very hard work ethic. She was an avid gardener. She also gave me some seeds that were 20+ years old–guess what, they grew. Try that with today’s hybrid.

        To conclude, be generous with your family but make sure you pay your debt first. Buying gold and silver now at your age won’t do you any good. Tell your husband thanks for his service to this great USA! Hope I helped some?

I mean seen any Photos of such BI?…They showed a full storage room filled with spent or fired “rockets and missles”. What they really are is a Homemade xtra big Bottle rocket type. Aprox. 2-4ft long, made from old car metals, ie: car fenders/hoods etc. And all they are capable of is being fired off like a bottle rocket and NO explosives upon impact. They cant even control where it flys to. Just lite fuse and rocket fires in an arch and falls back to earth several hundred ft to maybe a mile away.

          Those so called missles from palestine only do dammage “IF” they land on your head or roof maybe. They do NOT expolde or operate like what is made to sound like on fox or cnn news BI.

          I realize those other nations likly do have more impressive rockets. But after hearing for so many yrs from our msms like fox or cnn how “deadly” Palestine rocket attacks are, only to actually SEE the real thing and how Inneficient it really is kinda makes a person highly Doubt MSM’s reports.

          Also CONSIDER this BI: Funny all a sudden MSM reports as you stated, when Just Last Nite RT-tv news says “Russia has Canceled an contract from over a year ago to supply Syria with Over a BILLION $$$ worth of Missles russia promiced to deliver and signed contracts for a year ago!

So, the slightly frustrated scientist was tinkering in the lab, trying to come up with a beer that really WAS great tasting and less filling. Quite by accident, he discovered a way to bring people back from the dead.
      He’d mix a few chemicals, run them through a centrifuge, then type in a section of the DNA sequence of a human, and…Presto! The dead person would appear, in the flesh, right in the lab! When he hit the ‘delete’ key, they disappeared.
      But there was a catch. He couldn’t bring back just one person. He had to bring back two at a time. And, their personalities were always switched with one another. Plus, he never knew who he was re-animating until they appeared. Still, it was quite a breakthrough.
      The first time he did it, it really startled him.

      Slightly frustrated scientist: Wow! It’s Abe Lincoln! And Elvis! I can’t believe it!
      Abe: You better believe it, you old hound dog. Now, run get me a peanut butter and nanna sandwich.
      Elvis: Four score and seven hunks of burnin’ love ago, our forefathers…
      Abe: Say, where’d I get this funny hat?
      Elvis: That blue suede shoes, of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
      Abe: And what happened to my collar? And my pants legs? They’re tiny!
      Elvis: Tell General Grant that if he doesn’t wind this up at Appomattox, he’s gonna be doing the ‘jailhouse rock’ when he returns to Washington.
      Scientist: Sorry boys, this is too much.

      At that point, the slightly frustrated scientist hit the delete key, and they vanished. A while later, he tried again. (mix, mix, type, type…poof)

      Scientist: Oh my goodness! It’s Michael Jackson! And Dean Martin!
      Michael Jackson: Why am I craving pasta?
      Dean Martin: Wow! I’m twice as white as I used to be. This is cool!
      Jackson: And why do I suddenly feel more Catholic than Jehovah’s Witness?
      Martin: Hey, I can moon walk right up to people’s door and give them an Awake magazine! (in squeaky voice) Heee!
      Jackson: I need a drink…and a cigarette.
      Scientist: Sorry fellas. This is too strange. You gotta go. (hits delete)

      The slightly frustrated scientist was getting a bit more frustrated than usual. He took some Ritalin, and tried again. (mix, type, poof)

      Scientist: Oh No! Mother Teresa and Marilyn Monroe! (he quickly hit delete)

      He tried once more. (mix, etc, poof)

      Scientist: Gosh! It’s Karl Marx…and John Wayne!
      Marx: Where’s my spurs? And who are you, pilgrim?
      Scientist: I’m a slightly frustrated scientist. And I have sooo wanted to meet you, Mr. Marx! I’ve been an admirer of yours for years. And you should see the advancements humanity has made with your wonderful philosophy. We have a new Progressive movement in America, and it’s led by a unique and gifted man!
      Marx: Well, pilgrim, I always knew the proletariat would rise up one day and-
      John Wayne (pulls his gun and shoots them both): I haven’t lost my temper in 40 years, pilgrim. But there are some things even my ghost can’t tolerate…

      Going back to the how many rounds are used in a gunfight discussion earlier. In Boston when the cops cornered the two idjuts on the street, there were hundreds of rounds fired. Idjut #2 that got away did so because the cops ran out of rounds.

      http://www.newsmax.com/Headline/Police-Ran-Out-Bullets/2013/04/20/id/500509

      When the government says that 10 rounds in a pistol should be illegal, point out that Boston police just trying to get two people down (and only got 1) went through a huge amount of ammo and one got away.

      You can never have enough ammo…be better to run out of targets than ammo. That’s just my take on it.

      What If We Have Only Memories of Freedom?
      by Andrew P. Napolitano

      “What if, on Memorial Day, we remember times that were more free than today? What if, on Memorial Day, when we think of those who died for our freedom, we end up recognizing that the freedom they died for is dying?

      What if it becomes fashionable for the government to ignore the Constitution? What if the Constitution dies because the government stops following it?

      What if, next Memorial Day, freedom is just a memory?

      What do we do about it?”

        + 100 ^^^

        Add one more that most here won’t like. Once upon a time embattled farmers, in a fight picked by the intellectuals of the day, took on the world’s imperialist hegemon. And with help from interested others, won.

        Ours wasn’t the first or the last fight for self determination against an imperial power. William Wallace predated us by centuries. But since about 1848 we’ve been the imperial power with our boot astride someone else’s neck. Struggles for national liberation continue. Often with us on the wrong side.

        Dare to Struggle, Dare to Win

        Are we the only people entitled to liberty or is that a game everyone can play? If liberty is a universal birthright, following from one’s humanity, it doesn’t matter what race, religion, color or shoe size they are.

      After years of observing what the left has done and is still doing without interruption, without any quantifiable impact to their ideology or methodologies, as well as their consolidation of power within government itself, it would seem that revolt is the accurate word, if not tactic.

      They’ve been planning and implementing for a long time now and aren’t simply going to go away if asked, nicely. In fact it gets worse from here on. They are ready for a fight; they’ve been planning on one.
      Witness the activity in the general officer corps and recent examples of politicization of local police or their inability to recognize the problems that now require their choice of whom to serve.
      It seems that many believe that the oaths they took were loyalty oaths to the politicians, not the people.

      Constitution not withstanding and a majority media basically state run. The imagination runs wild with suppositions, all too closely borne out by actions and facts already known, with more upon the horizon.

      And some wonder why the sales of guns and ammunition are through the roof.

      The Bill of Rights, constituting the first ten amendments to the Constitution, was demanded by the States before they would agree to ratification. The Tenth Amendment guarantees that federal government will exercise only the power expressly afforded to it by the Constitution, and that the individual States retained all other sovereign powers. The federal government has, since before the Late Unpleasantness, made a mockery of the Tenth Amendment.

      The Second Amendment was not, as some speciously argue, intended to allow government-approved and sponsored militias. The States already had the power to do that. Nor was intended simply to permit Americans to hunt with firearms. It was, instead, understood to be the guarantee of last resort against unconstitutional federal action, a means for each citizen to reassert his liberty should it be stolen by a rogue government.

      Constitutional law has ended why because; A Supreme Court that resorts to the idiot notion of undefined and indefinable “penumbras,” violating the separation-of-powers doctrine in order to usurp power from a complicit and complaisant Legislature, is simply ruling by judicial fiat. They rely on the complexity of legal procedure, on unfamiliar terms of art, and on Byzantine analysis to prevent the average person – including the average lawyer – from realizing that they are simply spouting nonsense.

      The judiciary has been exercising blatantly unconstitutional authority for years at the expense of state sovereignty and individual liberty. So, too, has the executive branch of government. But nothing compares to the scope and rapidity of the usurpation of power conducted by the current President and his administration. These actions are so patently illegal that the States, in reaction to these breathtaking illegalities, are one by one asserting their sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to prevent further federal aggrandizement.

      Our liberties, already severely curtained, are threatened with extinction. Our access to firearms and ammunition must not be further restricted. I hope that the current administration is not foolish enough to attempt to do so.

        Many such Justices are simply doing the exact same thing Christ Condemned their Pharesee ancestors for. “Ye Vipers! Ye Pharasees! You take the word of God and Gods Laws, and twist them into meaningless teachings of the Doctrines and Traditions of…Men”

        If the Fruit dont fall far from the Tree it grew on, it is very likly that todays pharesee judges do not stray far from their ancestors ways. Which were begun while captive 70 yrs in Babalyon(about 3500 yrs ago).And are still today their Main teachings and Beliefs.

        Even Justice Scalia a catholic! Recently admited he is learning more and more regarding the Talmudic “Laws” etc. And how interesting he finds it all!

        About a year or so ago, Supreme ct justice Ruth “beedy rat eyed” Bader Ginsburg told a grad class at a Univ Law school(harvard?) that YES! They do in fact make use of the Talmud in deciding various court cases! When asked about use of talmud by a grad class student during Q&A’s to the Justice.

        If you begin reading most Any parts in their talmud books, you instantly become aware that what it states and the Way it is stated, is Very much akin to most every surpeme court case decision you ever read or heard about.

        A constant debate between Two Rabbi’s where one ask a question, the other give an answer. Then Both go on to non stop debate whatever the issue is for 50-100 or More pages! Untill it all gets so convoluted and twisted into knots, that even those two rabbi’s lose track and understanding of it all. Just like our fed ct case decisions! Our U.S.Const, has been gradually Replaced by Their Talmud wherever and whenever possible by those Justices. Stay Tuned! Just wait for Their “Noahide Laws”!!

      The global conquest for one currency from the Nomadic tribes has existed for thousands of years before Christ. These Nomadic tribes originated from a country that is South of Russia next to Mongolia and to the North of China.

      You see the conquest for the Asian and the western markets, and the wars that happened way before president NIXON was born. :(

      The NWO wants a new digital currency = a virtual currency = the BITCOIN.
      The NWO has not given up on the BITCOIN yet, because it’s easy to control (or get rid off ) an individual or a nation’s economy.

      Yeah, watched the vid. some over-simplified/wrong stuff (“nixon went off gold”). Also, they probably are missing the monster issue: no large nation can return to gold. Their money supply levels are too high.

      In contrast, any small country not 0wn3d by the IMF’er could.

      Better yet, individual communities could.

      The last statement is, to me, the crux of this opportunity. USA is falling into more and more socialism. Soon, 1/3 of all people will be free-loaders. So, how do you retain the value of your work? Exit from the free-loader system. I’m not sure growing your own food is net profitable but might be. Fixing your car? Providing your own basic healthcare (goodness knows most USA doctors are more concerned with payola than actually solving patient problems).

      I’m still not clear about how Ithaca HOURS or other alternative currencies could help. Maybe they can. Maybe they don’t. Clearly many of us are net earners from “the system” of fiat. It would be hard for us to migrate to another currency/barter/etc. This startup hump is largely what keeps USD et al in tall clover. Of course creating legal barriers to entry such as those thrown at flipcoin and others before it serves to make this hump somewhat of a little mountain.

      The documentary I really want to see is YoY prices increases and calculations about how much longer the debt printing can continues. The only good sources I’ve ever seen for the former are yahoo’s old yearly currency comparison calculator and the fartoomuch info dude who really nails it with his unit of measure of labor hour and then shows the inflation in so many areas. My opinion on the latter is they will print until people learn to use non false currency. I don’t see any light there. Which suggest our high inflation will accelerate – and every prepper nailed it by buying bulk and storing. Prepare for producing value as value always has a market. Hot air pays more though for now. And corruption pays the best by far. At least at the high levels of our country. Sad but true.

      It seems to me as though politicians are baffled by the situation at hand! They truly have no idea what to do about the problems of the economic crisis. What they need is advice from professional economic crisis specialists. The Orlando Bisegna Index for example specialist in the economic crisis have developed a programme that has brought much needed assistance to many US counties with debt problems, business failures and unemployment, therefore improving the economic situation for many families. The programme in question comes from their development of the Orlando Bisegna Index, a unique index based on 206 diverse indicators that measures the intensity of the economic crisis in the G20 nations and in other Euro currency nations.
