It takes a courageous person - Posted by Houserookie

to make such a controversial post like this. Idiotic or heroic that’s up to interpretation. We have people working for the Government that don’t know how to take tax deductions or apply for business licenses. We have people in this country that scream real estate flipping is a scam. It’ll take many months to convince the average person that flipping of real estate isn’t a scam…and here you discuss fractional banking. LOL
So here we are with the most creative minds on the web, CREONLINE community, fighting over something that took place prior to 1913. Few people on this board, with the exception of one or two, were born at the time. I was born over a half century after it happened.
Had the German worn WW2, we could be speaking in German right now. All of Europe could have become East, West, North, South Europe and Asian Nations would all be speaking Japanese.
I believe enough has been said on this topic. Each person can make his own decision. Just as flipping real estate has been discussed and now it is up to each person to decide whether flipping is legal or illegal.
A post by Brent ( IL ) seems to make the most sense to me.
The power that be will make any attempt for justice next to impossible. Just as REALTOR association makes it next to impossible to sell homes without using the mls.
You can’t speak Chinese and expect Americans to understand, just as you can’t explain real estate flipping to Joe Consumer. Do have consensus on what happend on 9/11? Power Blackout? I doubt it.
Personally, I believe many of the arguements over IRS, FED reserve, and the creation of money ( national debt ) are valid. But you are dealing with a situation where you are the guilty party until proven innocent. The Power That Be is innocent until proven guilty.
A college buddy of mine is sitting in jail today as we speak. He’s got a 400K bond set on him and his family does’t have the money to bail him out. Allegedly, his wife committed adultery and claims he forced sexual penetration on her, along with a count of kidnapping in her own home, and terroristic threat.
He may be innocent or he may be guilty. She may be lying or could be trying to lock her husband away to live a life with her new found partner.
Your position on this matter is clear but is that what you reallly want? How many Americans you know want to be guilty until proven innocent? It will take a major event to change public opinion.
Northeast power black out, Death of JFK, world trade center 9/11, Arnold Schwartezenger, internet virus, personal bankruptcy, jail time …something major in people’s life must take place for change to occur.
I once asked Senator Paul Wellstone when and if the US will ever print its own mney again, to that he repliad it’s cheap to contract out the work. I didn’t want to make a statement to get misquoted on the 30 second news coverage so I just planned my life accordingly. America is in debt. We are in trouble. One day, I may have to educate my kids’ kids to leave this country. I hold this crazy belief that a nation in debt is one nuclear bomb away from third world starvation. War is funded with money and one day we might not have enough money.
Now that you know the scoop what are you going to do? People have killed each other over religion, politic, neighbor and family disputes. Good luck trying to prove your point. There is remote possibility that the truth will come out one day, with Uncle Sam asking, So now what?"
We are the Super Power with the most Nukes. We set the rules. Our economic and monetary policies are echoed worldwide. Many nations of the word depend on our currency and power. The world is measured by what America does today.
So what if America is in debt by the trillions but the rest of the world is in debt to us.
Right or wrong. Morrally or immorrally. Politically correct or politically incorrect. This arguement is based entirely on placing faith and trust in government. I love my country, the US of A. It is faith and trust that bond a people to use one currency. It doesn’t matter what that
"currency" is it could be apples, cattle, fiat, plastic, freckles, diamonds, gold, peanuts, the consensus is that the power that be is the one that has the power to create money. They create the system to which we live. They create what and how our economy is to operate just as the King James Bible was influenced by King James. Everything else after the King James are deemend evil or incomplete. Who’s to say that KJ is right or wrong?
I can already hear it now, “who is this kid ( me )
think he is…I was born before he was?”
To that, I must say that many people in this country will live and die in ignorance. Don’t think too hard for we have Americans today that have never traveled out of their home State in a lifetime.
Try educating people that have never traveled out of their home State about world events, politics, currencies, and fractional reserve banking.
What you say is true in IMO, but it has become a way of life. As I have stated earlier, if you want to get to the nitty gritty, the whole concept of mney is based on faith. The man that wins the fight is the champion. The man with the money owns the champion.
