+Pamela Zuppo just in case you missed it. History has already proven my points but have fun in lala land. 

Paradoxically enough, the release of initiative and enterprise made possible by popular self-government ultimately generates disintegrating forces from within. Again and again after freedom has brought opportunity and some degree of plenty, the competent become selfish, luxury-loving and complacent, the incompetent and the unfortunate grow envious and covetous, and all three groups turn aside from the hard road of freedom to worship the Golden Calf of economic security. The historical cycle seems to be: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to apathy; from apathy to dependency; and from dependency back to bondage once more.
At the stage between apathy and dependency, men always turn in fear to economic and political panaceas. New conditions, it is claimed, require new remedies. Under such circumstances, the competent citizen is certainly not a fool if he insists upon using the compass of history when forced to sail uncharted seas. Usually so-called new remedies are not new at all. Compulsory planned economy, for example, was tried by the Chinese some three millenniums ago, and by the Romans in the early centuries of the Christian era. It was applied in Germany, Italy and Russia long before the present war broke out. Yet it is being seriously advocated today as a solution of our economic problems in the United States. Its proponents confidently assert that government can successfully plan and control all major business activity in the nation, and still not interfere with our political freedom and our hard-won civil and religious liberties. The lessons of history all point in exactly the reverse direction. – Henning W. Prentis, Industrial Management in a Republic, p. 22

AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE, when the rescue team reached the young woman’s house, they saw her dead body through the cracks. But her pose was somehow strange that she knelt on her knees like a person was worshiping; her body was leaning forward, and her two hands were supporting by an object. The collapsed house had crashed her back and her head.
With so many difficulties, the leader of the rescue team put his hand through a narrow gap on the wall to reach the woman’s body. He was hoping that this woman could be still alive. However, the cold and stiff body told him that she had passed away for sure.He and the rest of the team left this house and were going to search the next collapsed building.

For some reasons, the team leader was driven by a compelling force to go back to the ruin house of the dead woman. Again, he knelt down and used his had through the narrow cracks to search the little space under the dead body. Suddenly, he screamed with excitement, “A child ! There is a child !“
The whole team worked together; carefully they removed the piles of ruined objects around the dead woman. There was a 3 years old little boy wrapped in a flowery blanket under his mother’s dead body. Obviously, the woman had made an ultimate sacrifice for saving her son. When her house was falling, she used her body to make a cover to protect her son. The little boy was still sleeping when the team leader picked him up.
The medical doctor came quickly to exam the little boy. After he opened the blanket, he saw a cell phone inside the blanket. There was a text message on the screen. It said, “If you can survive, remember I love you.” This cell phone was passing around from one hand to another. Every body that read the message wept. “If you can survive, remember I love you.” Such is the mother’s love for her child!

please reshare if you love your Mother....

Wish people would give themselves a plexiotomy (see: surgically installing a plexiglass window in their stomach so they can see out while they have their head so far up their ass) so they could see all the damage their doing with their mythical sky wizard's warfare...  We need to have a "Day after tomorrow" or "2012" event that has a huge case of natural selection for mass population control/reduction and even if I didnt make it through; maybe, just maybe the remaining population would wise up, realize our existence is finite and become one people... it will take nothing short of that to get these morons in #gaza to wake the hell up!

Everyone loves to throw around "historically" or "statistically" shown that we'll be fine with more government (programs, bailouts, forced insurance coverage, etc)... Chew on this for a minute...

Where do you think we fall? I am thinking somewhere between Apathy and pre-Bondage. .

After doing some research on fiat currency and reading the history on it through several articles, I have to say that doesn't inspire any confidence! This one summed it up about the best though a bit biased - http://dailyreckoning.com/fiat-currency/
