Congressman Paul asks a witness (perhaps from the Treasury Department) to define what, exactly, is a dollar. It’s funny to see the witness hem, haw and squirm for a few seconds and finally BS his way out of actually defining the “dollar”. Curiously, Congressman Paul lets him off the hook. Nevertheless, it appears that government has no current definition for “dollars”.
But definitions are the “law” of the Law. You cannot know what a “law” means unless you know the definitions of the words used to express that law. How can anyone know the the meaning of a law that employs a word that is not defined?
The gov-co alleges that if the debt ceiling isn’t raised by August 2nd (or someday soon), the US will (gasp!) default on its debts! So-So Security checks might not go out!
OMG! OMG! Say it isn’t so!
In fact, as I’d previously pointed out in “The Debt Ceiling Is Falling! The Debt Ceiling Is Falling!,” the government has routinely and persistently defaulted on its debts for decades. Default is what gov-co does. Default is what gov-co intends to do. The “debt ceiling crisis” is just a little dance they have to do to make the yokels believe that the very idea of default is horrific to government; that the gov-co’s word is its bond; that gov-co is an honorable institution.
Here’s a nice, animated explanation of why We the People should want a monetary system based on gold–and why big government and the New World Order wants a fiat monetary system.
An average man makes a lot of sense with observations and questions directed to government.
We’re mad as Hell . . . and we’re not gonna take it anymore!

Transferring wealth from society to the “creators of money”. Tyranny.
Let’s see how much trouble I can get into with this one.
During yesterday’s Bible study class, an interesting thought crossed my mind. It’s pure conjecture and not necessarily correct. It’s not intended to be evidence of my “side” in the “Zionist question”. It’s simply an observation that strikes me a logical and perhaps insightful (maybe even original), so I thought it might be interesting to my readers. What I write today as possibility, I may totally reject in a year or even in a week. But, for now, this notion seems intriguing (at least to me):
Among other things, the Bible study class instructor touched on the problem faced by the Christ when he entered Israel as the “Messiah”. The Jewish people were expecting a “messiah” who’d be a military genius able to lead Israel to victory in wars against their neighbors. Under the leadership of the expected messiah, Israel would gain glory and profit through conquest and plunder.
This video will piss you off. It’s sharp, brilliant, concise. Less than 4 minutes.
Congressmen get rich–BIG TIME–while the USA burns. Hundreds of millions of dollars.
Congress may have passed laws to allow them to commit insider trading, but I wonder if there are similar laws to allow them to commit treason. Could insider trading by Congress be construed to be treason (levying war against the several “United States” or giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the States of the Union)?
I’ve said for years that Congress and the Senate are nothing but a bunch of treasonous whores for sale to the highest bidder. This video pretty much proves that contention. The bastards need to be indicted. All of ‘em.
Here’s a subsequent video by 60 Minutes on the same subject:
“Sovereign debts” are those owed by national governments. Historically, any nation’s sovereign debts were deemed to be of higher value than most of that nation’s private debts. I.e., investors were more likely to be repaid if they loaned to a sovereign/government than if they loaned to a private corporation or private individual in the same country. As a result, the interest rates on sovereign debt were almost always lower than the interest rates on loans to private corporations or individuals.
Thus, the interest rates charged to a particular national government tend to set the lowest possible interest rates for that nation. Whatever interest rate is set for a particular national government, the interest rate charge to private companies and individuals within that nation will almost always be higher.
I.e., if the government of France borrowed money for 4% interest, the private companies of France would borrow for, say, 6%. If the less credit-worthy government of Greece was simultaneously paying 9% interest, Greek private companies might pay 12%.
The interest rate charged to the national government effectively determined the interest rate charged to that nation’s corporations.
