As I intensely study my new direction towards being self sufficient, I continue to read Dr. Paugh’s message. She is ‘first hand informed’ beyond her years. As as a child she learned that the promise of security in exchange for a vote has never been fulfilled. We need ask… just how many American Women are 30 years behind her in acquiring the knowledge necessary to cast an informed vote?
You can easily pass up this opportunity to read Dr. Paugh’s post, but she clearly lays out what our future holds and helps to assure we know how to prepare for what happens next. Do read the comments, a few are insane, the majority are valuable reads. I do love the one comment where she’s accused of being extreme, it’s no more than an affirmation as to how well Ileana understands the current situation! It’s not who was running and who won as much as it was what they ran on, and what was popular with voters, consider that a focus point.
As I attempt to sort it all out, I got an email from a man who shares my affliction, he was raised with values proven totally out of date. He exposes his Achilles heal, and displays to the world a blueprint of how easily one can raid his house and burn it!
He may become annoyed that I share what he wrote, but I take that liberty. “Why do you tolerate Bill Knighton?” I respond… doesn’t it give us all a chance to know him?
Is the following a worthy comment to Dr. Paugh’s post? It may be the only recourse, do you know one better?
Worry NOT! This is a most Temporary Situation!
How many of us have looked on as we watched Government reward wrong behaviors, year after year?
Those who saved money in order to care for themselves and others in old age find themselves with an asset that earns no interest, and diminishes in value.
Pension funds, whether they be Corporate, Union or Private forced to fail as the managers must invest in far riskier investments than ever before! The FED has effectively stolen prudent investments via the prime interest rate they set at an insane zero!
As we look on, our wealth is transferred to whom and why? And if we complain, we are called extreme or racist? If you have a union pension fund, your investment is part of the transfer!
Some accuse Ileana of giving up, and they scold her for what she writes here. She knows that our President does little more than read the script borrowed from the past, and executes a plan older than Homer himself! Divide the people via race, class, wealth, and promise the impossible!
Is there really any way out of this other than to demand equal rights? Is there really any other way ‘FORWARD’?
Are you sitting silent while others are in the streets demanding a share of your life’s hard work? Will you allow them to make you as dependent as they are?
Tomorrow, we might be in the streets demanding the same gifts the Government hands out. We are wise enough to know that the real source of these payment are a direct transfer from our life savings, and tendered via the destruction of our currency through the printing press. WE know the FED has no money, they only take it from us, and now they do it through the back door!
THIS IS A VERY TEMPORARY situation, but perhaps the right thing to do is help let the air out of the tent as quickly as possible and end the charade. How many of us have gone without… never having drawn unemployment, never having taken advantage of the many programs we qualify for right now?
Are we as guilty as Nero? Do we fiddle as we watch the American dream being transformed into dependency? Is it a well honed plan?
Perhaps the very best way ‘FORWARD’ is to demand a share of your savings via the many Government programs? Are you too proud to help make this period of Transformation as short as possible? We know the Boomers are made up of many races, religions, and from rich to poor. Many of us have been raised to believe if we can go another 5 days without something, we don’t really need it. A so called ‘black’ American shared that he was taught the very same thing from an early age. Is that trait our Achilles heal?
I have thus far refused to take Social Security because…well, because of an old and perhaps outdated sense of pride, I now see it as a card to play. I am no Titan, but I am tired of helping to hold up the earth. I expect a lot of Boomers of all colors to join me, ask not what you can do for your Country, it will be used against you!
I think Dr. Paugh writes this day knowing what follows this most temporary period…. She has asked Woman to use their votes wisely, we note than many of them have voted for security… having never lifted a book to discover it’s an age old promise never fulfilled. Of course there’s plenty of blame to go around.
And the very idea that a person wedded to the State shall have a full vote? Don’t we all know how they will vote? Did we not tolerate it all, and for how long?
Why argue the point? Who has listened thus far? It’s best we join in and bring the tent down quickly, we might do this and spare our Grandchildren the trouble, no doubt it might take them years to understand who the Slavers really are. Why not use the first hand knowledge we have acquired to assure they inherit the truth? It may be the only asset we can pass on to them.
Know your enemy, it may be you discover they are the ones carrying the banner you march behind! And last but no least.. don’t let those who tell you about their Godless belief fool you.. They have every right to practce their belief, we’ve given them that freedom. It is your freedom to believe as you wish they want to deny! These comments about Christians or Jews, it sadens me to see it amongst my own family and friends.. parse their language, it’s all about you accepting their version of reality, it’s a very old game, and part of tearing apart the land of the free.. google Evan Sayett, no one sayit better…
