Your Must See For The Week Money, Banking, and the Federal Reserve This 41 minute Documentary could change America.
Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson understood "The Monster". But to most Americans today, "Federal Reserve" is just a name on the dollar bill. They have no idea of what the central bank does to the economy, or to their own economic lives; of how and why it was founded and operates; or of the sound money and banking that could end the statism, inflation, and business cycles that the Fed generates.
Dedicated to Murray N. Rothbard, steeped in American history and Austrian economics, and featuring Ron Paul, Joseph Salerno, Hans Hoppe, and Lew Rockwell, this extraordinary documentary is the clearest, most compelling explanation ever offered of the Fed, and why curbing it must be our first priority.
Alan Greenspan was not, we're told, happy about this 1996 blockbuster. Watch it, and you'll understand why. This is economics and history as they are meant to be: fascinating, informative, and motivating. This movie could change America. 

I invite, encourage, entice, influence, pressure, persuade, cajole, coax, plead, request can I demand? Or would a threat of bodily harm move you to read FULL ARTICLE at http://lewrockwell.com/rep3/money-banking-fed.html  This is NECESSARY INFORNATION, making it a MUST SEE. This Documentary exposes our Government’s underhanded tacticts to institute a back door to a National ID Card. GET THE FACTS CONTAINED IMPRINTED ON YOUR MIND.IT COULD BE A MATTER OF LIFE OR DEATH. THEN YOU WILL UNDERSTAND AND BE READY TO PRESENT COGENT INFORMATION ABOUT THIS SUBJECT. READ THE FULL ARTICLE and then FORWARD IT TO EVERYONE ON YOUR E-MAILLIST.

ChallengeViews Even though this is a group of super heroes, which one does not belong? Spiderman, The Hulk, Batman, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America Nightcrawler. Tqsack was first with: The answer is Batman.  Batman is a DC comics creation.The others are in the Marvel group, Nightcrawler is part of the X_Men.

Bonus from Tqsack: Stan Lee is the brains behind Marvel and he always does a cameo in a Marvel produced film, a little like AlfredHitchcock.

A Mormon Leader's Promotion of Peace by Connor Boyack
In October 1946, a high-ranking leader of a large Christian church in America rose to the podium in a tabernacle, during a large conference in which were assembled 7,000 church members, with thousands more listening via radio transmission, and a million more receiving the messages in the weeks and months ahead. His message was scathing – a castigating rebuke of the use of atom bombs just over a year previous. He said, “wholesale destruction of men, women, and children, and cripples, [and] drew from the nation at large a general approval of this fiendish butchery.” He added, “as one American citizen of one hundred thirty millions, as one in one billion population of the world, I protest with all of the energy I possess against this fiendish activity, and as an American citizen, I call upon our government and its agencies to see that these unholy experimentations are stopped.” This man was J. Reuben Clark, a counselor to the President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), and thus a member of the Church's highest-ranking body. A lawyer by training and a diplomat and statesman by experience, Clark was an ardent advocate of peace. Read the FULL ARTICLE at http://lewrockwell.com/orig8/boyack4.1.1.html

The end results for Ron Paul in Nevada were nearly heartbreakingly disappointing--third behind Gingrich with 18.7 percent, just 6,175 total votes in a very low turnout caucus vote, with more than 10,000 fewer GOP caucus goers than 2008. This was for a campaign and candidate that expected at the least a strong second and, if they continued their pattern of enormous state-by-state increases vs. their vote totals in 2008, maybe even win.

The Deception of 0% Interest Rates, High Costs and Capital Destruction by Jim Willie Market Oracle
The interminable extension by the Federal Reserve on the 0% rate into 2014 represents history in the making. It’s adoption is heresy in monetary policy, making it mainstream. Worse, it forces foreign central banks to adopt the same destructive policy in the Competing Currency War. Once upon a time, the highest priests from the central bank would admit in a guiding tone that accommodation on interest rates must be temporary. Nowadays it is engrained in the market mindset and permanent in monetary policy. The chronic 0% means the entire financial and monetary system is totally irreparably broken. The old pendulum where the tilt was toward bonds during recession, then toward stocks during recovery, that is all gone, shattered by the endless financial crisis.

Worker shortage puts billions of AG production in jeopardy by Cowboy Byte
With spring rapidly approaching, American agriculture industries are increasingly worried about a growing labor shortage. An American Farm Bureau Federation economic analysis concluded that $5 billion to $9 billion in annual production is in jeopardy if the U.S. employee shortage cannot be filled.

A recent University of Georgia report found a projected loss of $391 million last year in the Peach State due to crop rot from labor shortages. Alabama is also experiencing severe economic losses due to labor shortage.  Go to http://cowboybyte.com/4123/worker-shortage-puts-billions-of-ag-production-in-jeopardy/ to read the Comments.

WordViews by Walt Clark
hubris (HYOO-bruhs) noun: Overbearing pride or presumption; an arrogance usually
 associated with the political realm.
 
SYNONYMS: 
•conceit is a pejorative like hubris in that there is too much self-esteem, but lacks the
 association with politics
•ostentation is a rather harmless pretentious display meant only to impress others
•pride is a positive as hubris is negative. It is a pleasure or satisfaction taken in an
achievement, a possession, or an association
   
WORD WISE: You may find it interesting that the positive “pride” is held by the
 subject of the word where the negative “hubris” is held by others. It is probably safe to
 assume that one person’s hubris is another person’s pride.
 
“Pride is the recognition of the fact that you are your own highest value and, like all of
 man’s values, it has to be earned.” 
--From John Gault’s Speech in Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand.
  
 
“This is the actor's hubris, to imagine the world possessed of a single, avid eye fixed
 solely and always on him.”
-- John Banville
“There is no safety in unlimited technological hubris” (McGeorge Bundy).

The Federal Reserve is nothing more than a stooge agency that acts as an ATM machine for the criminal US banking industry.

The artificially low interest rates (ZIRP - or Zero Interest Rate Policy) is merely transferring the wealth of the middle class savers to the criminal banksters. QE (Quantitative Easing) is simply a back-door bailout for the criminal banksters who brought the global economy to it's knees.

You see - they all work together as an organized racketeering syndicate - the pols, the Fed Reserve and the Too Big To Fail banksters. Their goal is to steal your wealth and transfer it to the financial oligarchs. And they have been remarkably successful.

10% of the richest Americans own 90% of the nation's wealth.

The top 10 banks own 77% of the financial markets. There are over 8400 banks in America.

Do you think you're going to solve that problem at the ballot box or by writing to your senator or congressman??

Good luck.
