I think most here feel the same. Also so much concern for multinationals that started here first allowed tax breaks and options out of Obama care while outsourcing jobs here. Mr Copper even if people wanted to buy USA made they couldn’t. They keep saying that taxing multinationals would hurt the economy. These same multinationals have already hurt the economy for their own selfishness. That’s not counting some of them like Monsanto and GMO and pharmacies forcing vaccines on us by both lobbying and bribing gov officials. Maybe going after them will be also taking the ones doing their bidding who probably hold their stocks with them.
Lol. Oskaar needs a vacation in some sunny clime!
Nobody wants to face the truth. America is being destroyed from the inside out. America could be the most pristine and technologically advanced nation in the world if properly run and if all those billions/trillions had been used IN AMERICA to rebuild the deteriorating infrastructure from sea to shining sea. Instead we force people to become sedentary by taking away their need to work to eat. Just give them food stamps and welfare so they keep quiet while the country is being raped and pillaged. Open the borders to illegals and their diseases. Then thank them by giving them amnesty along with more welfare and food stamps and voting rights.
I guess it’s again time to post the picture. He’s just the latest in a long line of bought and paid for traitors to a once rich and beautiful nation. God help us all!! Silverngold
beats the hell out of my baked potat0e with sour cream and chives tonight. (GRIN)

re part revised:
Now Just Imagine if
Our own *PEOPLE*
Gave fellow ‘US’ citizens the same support they give to foreign countries.
Every time they buy a foreign made imported product.
Sad, isn’t it?
99% of people won’t have the ‘chutzpah’ to forward this.
It didn’t have to be the way things are today. Nobody here would be on food stamps. No credit cards. Cash and carry. There would be budget surpluses, not deficits. Too many Americans gleefully bought high quality, artificially cheap, foreign products thinking only of themselves.
Simple things makes like worth living.
There is no inflation, just more Americans joining the poor every day. I think I will take over an island in the Florida keyes, shell the nearest island to mine and negotiate a surrender and wait for the government rebuilding program.
Pretty quiet around the Tent …….
Got all my wood put away and presently cooking in the outdoor oven
Simple things ……. fire, food, family, friends and of course, Mrs Winedoc
“Even in a time of elephantine vanity and greed, one never has to look far to see the campfires of gentle people.”
I’m making her and my daughter dinner.
Over and out for now
repeat oh s..t three times
Now thats a good song too ……. ain’t it Farmy ??
IF THIS DOESN’T STIR YOU??? NOTHING WILL/// FORGET THE PARTY, THEY BOTH ARE AT FAULT.
DEMOCRATS and Republicans
We read all the jokes and forward the good ones
but I just wonder who will pass this one on?
How about you sending it on, and back to me,
if you have enough ‘chutzpah’ to do so.
And I wonder just how many I will get back?
Someone please tell me what’s wrong with
All the people that run this country!!!!!!
Both Democrats and Republicans
They Say,”We’re broke”
And can’t help our own
But, over the last several years THEY
have provided direct cash aid to…..
Hamas – $351 M,
Egypt – $397 M,
Mexico – $622 M,
Russia – $380 M,
Haiti – $1.4Billion,
Jordan – $463 M,
Kenya – $816 M,
Sudan – $870 M,
Nigeria – $456 M,
Uganda – $451 M,
Congo – $359 M,
Ethiopia – $981 M,
Pakistan – $2Billion,
South Africa – $566 M,
Senegal – $698 M,
Mozambique – $404 M,
Zambia – $331 M,
Kazakhstan – $304 M,
Iraq – $1.08Billion,
Tanzania – $554 M,
A total of 14,933,000,000
that is 14.933 BILLION
…with literallyBillions of Dollars
and they still hate us!!!!
(NOTE HOW MANYAFRICAN NATIONS!)
But on the other hand,
OUR MILITARY IS BEING CUT, OUR SOLDIERS ARE HAVING THEIR BENEFITS CUT AND THE GOVERNMENT HAS GONE BACK ON ITS
PROMISE OF FREE MEDICAL CARE AND DENYING DISABILITY TO THOSE PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY TORN APART FOR NO GOOD REASON IN POLITICAL WARS!
Our retired seniors,
Living on a ‘fixed income, have their
taxes raised to send to these countries and also are having medical benefits cut.
Our own citizens receive NO aid unless they are the ones who refuse to work and have babies for welfare payments!
Nor do they get any breaks, while our government
And religious organizations will pour
Hundreds of Billions Of $$$$$$’s
and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries and the illegals and leeches within our borders!
AMERICA: A country where we have
Our brave warriors, damaged for life, waiting in yearlong + for their due, the elderly going without needed medication
and the Mentally ill without treatment, and for all of
us, our safety is at risk because
prisoners are being
back onto the streets
due to “lack of funds– etc.
They will have a ‘Benefit’ Show
For the people of Haiti , on 12 TVStations;
Ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents
clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.
Now Just Imagine if
Our own *GOVERNMENT*
Gave ‘US’ the same support they give to foreign countries.
Sad, isn’t it?
99% of people won’t have the ‘chutzpah’ to forward this.
WELL, I’m one of the 1% who Just Did
Maybe they should start with theirs. Think their paranoid now wait till they see how many people really think about them.
At what point do they try to use theses waves to control people. Obey, be passive, go to work, give us your money.
They better be careful as what can be used on others can be used on them and anyone who is a stalker or bent on getting to someone or been on the other side of that knows any laws they make aren’t gonna stop these people and for some of them the list will be long with all the damage they’ve done to so many. See that cliff go walk off it.
Armstromgs latest. Some people think he’s a bit OCD. Can’t say, but he is focused on nothing else it seems but economy and politics. Least not golfing.
Believe it or not, Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have developed a machine and computer program which converts brain activity into sounds and words. That’s correct! Speech activates specific neurons as the brain operates to interpret the sounds as words. Each word activates a slightly different set of neurons. This is how language functions – it is actually pattern recognition with sound rather than sight.
These scientists have begun to develop an algorithm that can pick up the activity and translate it back into words from outside your mind. They claim this technology will help people who are unable to speak. In reality, it will help the NSA transcend everything to fill their paranoia about what people are thinking and can they eliminate those who would overturn their power. This is Stalin unplugged and unlimited.
The entire difference between humans and even chimps is our ability to associate patterns. Intelligence is a scale of pattern recognition. Most people, not all, finally realize that if they keep sticking their finger in a light socket it hurts. That is the first step in pattern recognition. We associate an effect to a cause. The road to becoming smart is based upon our capacity to create a three-dimensional concept of cause and effect. It dawns on us that getting struck by lightning will ;produce the same effect as sticking our finger into an electric socket.
Developing a machine that can tap into how our mind differentiates patterns is crossing that line and into the realm o
f reading minds. This is highly dangerous and the ultimate invasion of our privacy if anything is left.
I found a easy way to stack wood for busy nurses. Put them in those big trash barrels with wheels. Then you can just pull them up to the back door and grab them when you need them. Keeps the rain off them too.
Draw about $800 – $1000 a month, give or take, I believe
Perhaps Equis could weigh in on that …….
Trying to stack a cord or wood, but heavy rain showers keeps chasing me inside
See Ya’ll tonight
It has to be the Central bankers, (global gov’t) day trading the entire global economy. Moving and rotating simulative lower valued currency values, country to country. Like “topping off” tanks around the world.
But they can’t win. Tax PAYER labor values are too low, like Corn being too low for a farmer. There is simply too much labor (bodies) and not enough work, to drive labor values higher.
The earlier powers that be (in the ’40s?) understood the need for a standard tax paying wage for entry level employees. Back at $1.25/hr the standard equaled 5 gallons of gas per hour.
do your two female partners have the Canadian social security equivalents to American workers
and not to be to nosey LOL what is the monthly draw for these to friends
and at your ripe age do you draw on this Canadian retirement fund ..
savings now will cost .25 in some country’s
Farmboy, re your…
“I no longer think any of the ‘experts’ know where the price of the PM’s go next. Throw the charts to the wind, the PTB will push the levers of manipulation in whatever direction they wish, until that day when the levers no longer work.”
Hear hear on that Farmboy!! Seeing the SnP lose an entire year plus of gains in two weeks, and then see new highs? Seeing a US Dollar chart go straight up since June like a dot com stock chart.
Heating oil or diesel prices dropping like a rock? Way too many abrupt irrational and big moves, both ways. With this kind of action, a $100 up move in gold in two days won’t surprise me either.
Thats why “Working Retirement” is the new paradigm.
I am thankful for my health, what I have saved and for the cards I have been dealt.
Two of my partners are females, age 68, both widowed with no retirement plans in sight, what has gone wrong ?? Is that going to be me ??
RRSP’s have been a disaster for most Canadian Doctors, self employed and saving for their own retirement ……. on top of that cherry, …….. “Bail In” legislation may soon be coming to a neighbourhood near you.
yep that amount in bank .. even with social security is a wasting asset ,, when it is gone it is gone
the prospects of finding more disposable income is nil .. especially retired ..
how much is enough .. that depends.. this talk of deflation a mantra of the crowd .. is in reality not showing up in the things one needs to sustain life food and services are skyrocketing.. so how much is enough .. the many do not have this security .. its a conundrum for many
I was conversing with a colleague friday, he works in Palliative care, and sadly, he had a more than a brush with bowel cancer and is back working, with an unclear future.
Man, If that was me, I would be retiring on what ever I had in the bank …….
I was amazed with his optimism and clarity. Whether he still “needs” to work, I don’t know. I’m sure he’s thought about it, …….. and much more …….
Still, He has a lot to offer his patients, and I applaud him for that.
I said, “Mike” we can’t afford health care the way it is can we ?? ……..
We both agreed, for example …… very elderly patients having 3-4 or more rounds of chemo, and on the other side of the coin, waste, waste and more wasted resources.
I mean, a $900 mri scan of a “toe” …… while a plain film gives the same information.
Indeed …… pass the wine
I Enjoy your posts and musings
get the wine lol
question and a ponder
is it possible that the retirement system in US could blink and lower all benefits…how would this effect the American dream
