Welcome to Roger's Economic Rant
November Economic Rant -Roger Mason
The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out... without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable...H.L. Mencken
We have just reached 7 billion sheeple on this planet. In 1927 we had a mere 2 billion. This should be a half billion or less. We have 14 times or 1,400% too many sheeple on earth. The stupidest, laziest, and least productive breed like cockroaches. Africa leads the world in breeding. The most intelligent, educated, hard working, and most productive don’t even reproduce to maintain their numbers. The Chinese are almost one fifth of the world population. India is almost one fifth of the population. This will just get worse and worse every year, unless something very drastic happens. Like nuclear war or a world-wide devastating bioengineered plague. Smallpox is the leading choice here. Every day the world gets even stupider. In America maybe (just maybe) 1% of the population has any idea at all of what is really going on. In third world countries literally no one has any idea of what is really going on. Only about 2% of Americans even support Ron Paul for example. They can choose freedom and affluence, but 98% would rather have government slavery and poverty. They will vote for Obama/Romney/Perry.
This is a 13 year chart of the infamous Apple stock. The media loves this and worship Steve Jobs as a deity. It was impossible for anyone to see the price would go up 70 times in 13 years. The volatility alone would have taken anyone out of the market. This is not the road to riches obviously. The road to riches is:
Buy value and hold for the long term.
Be right and sit tight.
Buy and hold and add on dips.
Never trade, never trade, never trade.
The majority of Americans want to punish the rich by taxing them more. This is their solution to Big Government, socialist, Marxist, and all the wasteful liberal programs and entitlements we have. The top 1% already pay 40% of all income taxes. The bottom 1% pay NOTHING. In addition, half the sheeple in this country get some kind of government check every month. When you keep taxing the rich you destroy the economy. The rich cut back on jobs and business and commerce. The rich lay off workers. The rich don't invest. You will get very very very little tax money by increasing taxes on the rich. History proves this beyond any doubt. Want a better way? Shut down every one of the approximately 865 overseas military bases we have. That is 865 foreign bases, PLUS the ones in Iraq and Afghanistan. Bring home every American solider now. Stop killing our young men and women. Stop killing innocent people in the Mideast. These evil, insane wars of aggression have nothing whatsoever to do with "defense". This will literally give us trillions of dollars we are currently wasting attacking other nations for no good reason. America spends 50% of the world military budget, when we have 5% of the world population. Yes, you can find reasons we could spend 10% of the world military budget, but no more. That would mean a cut of 80% of our military budget. Do you know how you can really "support our troops"? BRING THEM HOME NOW. That's how. We should not be the World Policeman and the World Bully. We have replaced Russia as the World Bully and it is a complete disgrace.
The five basic reasons for the decline and fall of the Roman Empire:
Edward Gibbon (The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire).
Let’s look at some very important facts…
The U.S. standard of living has been falling for almost 40 years now.
1 in 6 Americans have no health insurance. This is a good thing. Health insurance for people under 40 as a whole is a waste of time Health insurance for those under 21 is absolutely ridiculous. The average health insurance plan costs $15,000 per family.
Half of all Americans get some kind of government check every month.
Half of all Americans pay no income tax at all.
The top 1% pay 40% of all income taxes.
The top 1% own one third of all the wealth.
The bottom half of Americans own a mere 2.5% of the wealth.
The real unemployment rate is 23%, not “9%”.
The average college graduate has $25,000 in student loans he or she can’t pay back.
One third of college graduates take jobs that require no degree at all. Now your waiter,
waitress, janitor and store clerk have college degrees.
America has lost 32% of our manufacturing jobs since 2000. We used to be the manufacturing capital of the world. You get rich by MAKING things, not consuming things, In 1970 25% of jobs were manufacturing, making things. Now only 9% of jobs are making things.
Between 1969 and 2009 the median wage fell by 27% after adjustment for inflation. This means the standard of living fell 27% in 40 years.
Half of American workers earn $500 a week or less BEFORE taxes.
New home sales are down 80% since the 2005 peak. You will see the median U.S. home sell for $100,000 within 5 years. The housing crash will continue for years. Home prices have already fallen by more than a third since the 2005 peak.
18% of Florida homes sit empty and unrented and cannot even be insured.
In 1950 there were 16 workers to support each person on Social Insecurity. Now there are a mere 1.75 workers to support them. Social Insecurity has been bankrupt for decades now. They have been robbing Peter to pay Paul, but Peter is broke. Don’t expect anything from Social Insecurity. Don’t expect any private- or government- pension either.
Americans on food stamps has increased 74% just in the last four years
One in every four American children is on food stamps. Needless to say, almost none of these are white children.
One third of the entire state of Alabama is on food stamps.
Half of all children will end up on food stamps by the time they reach 18.
77% of Americans are living from paycheck to paycheck. They have no savings, are deeply in debt, and live from day to day.
1 in 25 public school children (12-17) is drugged up by the authorities. This is not true in private schools. Every year more children are drugged up, mostly on Ritalin. Ritalin is a dangerous and powerful amphetamine that causes serious mental illness. Children on Ritalin are doomed, have no future, and will suffer from serious mental disorders.
In 1965 only 1 in 50 were on Medicaid. Now 1 in 6 is on Medicaid.
When the Federal Reserve was formed in 1913, an item that costs $20 would now cost you $458. A $20 item is now $458!!! This is what the Federal Reserve has done for America. The biggest Zionist Ponzi scheme in history. It is 100% owned by Zionist banks, isn’t federal, and has no reserves. They print money from thin air.
The registered (available) silver stocks at the COMEX are quickly disappearing. Just in the last three years they have fallen from almost 90 million ounces down to less than 30 million ounces. 30 million is a drop in the bucket, and this is THE largest stock of silver bullion in the world. We are running out of silver. The biggest bullion dealers in the world like APMEX are out of stock and giving 30 day wait times for delivery. Buy silver bullion now while it is still available. Junk bags of pre-1965 U.S. coins are your best buy, and very practical. Do not buy “paper silver” of any kind, SLV, silver stocks, or have anyone store it for you. You must hold your own silver. Be creative and you can safely hide your silver. No unsafe boxes at the bank. The best time to buy silver is when you have money in your pocket. Silver is the best investment in the world. It is four times better than gold. The gold to silver ratio will fall back to the histrorical 15 to 1 ratio. Maybe even 10 to 1. There really is no choice at all. Silver and gold have been the only real money for 5,000 years now. We are almost totally out of silver, and you cannot possibly begin to mine enough for annual requirements. Silver is going to Mars to refuel for the trip to Pluto. Silver at $35 is a steal. Put every dollar you can into silver.
Do you still think 9/11 was done by Arabs with boxcutters? Are you still not willing to admit 9/11 was an inside job? Then go to www.ae911truth.org and watch the 4 minute intro to their documentary. Just four minutes will convince you. Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth has 1,600 of the best and brightest people in the world. They can prove 9/11 was an inside job done with nanothermite. Jet fuel (kerosene) cannot melt steel. Please watch this four minute intro, as it is fascinating. Get their monthly newsletter for free. Donate to them if you can. They have a 501c3 non-profit status. This is a fine organization devoted to telling the truth about the 9/11 fraud.
The entire world Gross National Product (GNP) is only $65 trillion. The amount of derivatives is $1.4 quadrillion. That is 23 times the entire world GNP. We cannot even clearly define what a derivative is. Derivatives have absolutely no value at all on their own. None, zero, nothing. Even senile Warren Buffett said derivatives are, “financial weapons of mass destruction”. The Big Banks have been making huge profits from these paper delusions for many years now. They have never existed on earth before. They are crashing. They are going to crash and burn because they have no value. This is going to cause the entire world to suffer from the worst depression in history. You won’t hear the media warn you about derivatives. Just keep reminding yourself there are 23 times the amount of derivatives as the entire gross production of this planet. This is not even comprehensible. This alone with cause the entire planet to go into the worst depression ever. It is just a matter of time, and not much time.
The Center for Disease Control panel formally advised all 11 year old boys as well as 11 year old girls to routinely get Gardisil(R) vaccinations. The reason for giving this to boys is to "prevent anal cancer". No, I didn't make up something that absurd, they did. Anal cancer is almost non-existent. This won't stop stupid parents from allowing their children the get shot up with Gardisil. That, along with flu and whooping cough, and God only knows what else vaccines. All this is to make Merck Pharmaceuticals rich of course. Did the media tell you this is the second best selling vaccine worldwide, after flu? While we're talking about vaccines, Bill Gates just “discovered” a new malaria vaccine. He is going to personally see how many black people he can kill in Africa with this. Being fascinated by "white man's magic" the poor souls will line up for this deadly assault. Remember he said at a public meeting that we, “can control the population with enough vaccines.” His mouth outran his mind that day and he admitted it publicly. Never get a vaccination. Never allow your children to be vaccinated. Smallpox is the only vaccination you need for political reasons. That is the only vaccination you can’t get. Strange, huh?
This is a 1912 cartoon. It is almost 100 years later. The Federal Reserve is the biggest economic scam in world history. This is a PRIVATELY owned organization. They are not audited. The control the entire money supply of America. We need to end the Fed completely, but that is not going to happen. The sheeple don’t care. They don’t understand and don’t want to understand. Thinking hurts their heads.
The average American home will fall to $100,000 within about five years. You will be able to buy that home for a mere 250 ounces of silver- or even less. Yes, that is $8,750 today. Yes, you will be able to buy a fine home for less than $9,000 if you buy silver today. The housing crash has years to go. Banks will become rental agents for the millions of empty homes.
Did you know 90% of Libyans clearly supported Quadaffi? He was no unelected dictator in any way. The Americans and Israelis wanted to get rid of him for a lot of reasons. They want Libyan oil since it is the 6th largest supplier. He dumped the U.S. dollar years ago when selling oil and priced it in Euros. He was not another America stooge and puppet like the Saudis are. You noticed the media never at any time told you who these
mysterious “rebels” were, what they stood for, or anything else about them. We still don’t know who the hell they are, or what they want. It is not our business what other countries do, who they elect, what religion they practice, or anything else. America was founded on the principle, “friendships with all, but alliances with none”. What isn’t clear about that? Now we are the World Bully, the World Policeman wasting 50% of the world military budget (but only 5% of the world population) killing innocent people and starting a new war every few months.
America has 5% of the world population but 25% of the world prison inmates. We have the nerve to criticize countries like Iran, when they have a mere fraction of the prison inmates per capita that we do. We have more people locked up percentage wise than Russia, Cuba, China, or even North Korea. AMERICA IS A POLICE STATE! Look at this chart. This is a disgrace!
None of this was true until 1970. For the last 40 years the police state mentality has taken over America. People literally get locked up in America for THINKING. We have conspiracy laws that no other country has even thought of. One third of inmates are in for drugs. If all drugs were legalized for all adults one third of prisons would close down. 99% of the Occupy Wall St. protesters in various cities are far left socialists, Marxists, and communists who want MORE GOVERNMENT control of their lives and more government handouts. You can see on the TV footage nearly all of them are losers with no job, no money, carrying signs, and beating on drums instead of looking for work. This will get worse. Remember, they want bigger government, more government control, more government handouts and more government help. Nancy Pelosi said, “God bless them”. This alone tells you all you need to know. Pelosi is the kiss of death. Obama also blessed them as “his people”.
Here is the Whore of Babylon folks. After a full and total face lift in 2007, she looks like she’s 75 at the age of 65. She defines ugly. She said, "I'm very privileged to have had the opportunity to serve my country ... I'm really old-fashioned. I feel I have made my contribution. I have done the best I can. But now I want to try some other things. I want to get back to writing and maybe some teaching, working on women and girls around the world ... I have made my contribution. I'm very grateful I have had the chance to serve, but I think it's time for others to step up." She is dying of cancer folks. We’ve been saying this for over two years now. She would never leave politics unless she was dying. She wants to be President of the U.S. more than anything in the world. The fact she is Secretary of State proves conclusively this country has gone totally down the toilet. Clinton advisor Dick Morris said on the Sean Hannity show that Obama is not going to run in 2012. This would leave Hillary as the only real choice the Democrats have. There are lots of stories that Obama will not run again. You may be looking at your next president here.
Thanks to Agora for the chart below. In the last 12 years jobs have gone to Hell, but salaries have gone down further into Hell. Less people working, making less money all the time. The U.S. standard of living has been falling since the early 1970s. Remember the population in America has risen dramatically in the last 12 years. You would need for more jobs just to match the population increase. The real unemployment rate is now 23%. This is almost as bad as the Great Depression. It is going to 40% within the next few years. The government doesn’t have enough welfare money to support 4 out of 10 workers out of work. They cannot tax enough to support them either. People are going to starve in the street. The soup lines in the Great Depression were very long. This time there aren’t even going to be enough soup lines. Seriously, the government is out of money, and the charities cannot possibly feed tens of millions of people.
Nothing good is ahead of us. Prepare for the future. Common sense tells you to be prepared and ready for what is ahead. Buy silver, gasoline, ammo, whole grains, dried beans, toilet paper, paper towels, some canned goods, soap, and all the other things you use every day. Be prepared folks. Another fake 9/11 attack is overdue, will be much worse, and will be blamed on Iran.
