definition of our American Heritage is simply the handing down from
generation to generation a tradition of freedom and self sufficiency. Of
course, as we all know, those days are receding rapidly.
Valley Forge – “Shall I begin by saying some things you know, but
may have forgotten? This world you have cut from the wilderness, is a new
world, brighter with sun in summer, colder with winter cold than the world I
knew. The air's strange-sharp, the voice rings here with a hard ring. I find
no man but looks you in the eye and says his thought in your teeth, and means
it.” “This was not known before on this star we inhabit.”
“You will find this is not easy to throw away.”
is a rumor circulating that a bank holiday may be on its way.
is the type of holiday where the banks are all closed across the nation and
your money becomes temporarily unavailable. Even your savings box would be
off limits. FDR did this shortly after coming to office. Anyone paying
attention? Sure, it’s just a rumor, but a very scary rumor with lasting
and permanent consequences should it turn out to be true. We are all too
consumed impatiently waiting for the new trillion plus free health insurance
act would enable the real insiders to first clear up the chaos that almost
every banking institution in the US is struggling through. In the process the
banks would more than likely create new rules that may not be favorable to
the typical consumer. And also, the US dollar probably will be devalued in

industrial jobs don't return to America we are toast.”
Funds are beginning to purchase gold this year because they are betting this
financial crisis will continue and bring inflation. The institution still
holding the greatest number of derivatives and with the greatest exposure
continues to be JP Morgan.
Editor John Stepek Aug 25, 2009”But it's certainly a good reason to
have a chunk of your portfolio (about 10% say) in gold.”

the car called a Hummer? Sales dropped pretty quickly this past year or so.
An American status symbol now bought out and owned by a small and
insignificant Chinese company. Part of bankrupt GMs chopping assets. Can your
family cough up the required 184,000 dollars to pay down our massive US debt?
where is the world heading? Frankly I believe we are in the last days.
Next year? A generation from now? 50 years out? You would have to be
crazy and ignorant not to be aware of all the significant cosmological
changes in store for our world in the coming years. Just the
possibility of a “polar shift” is enough to get your house in
order. Is your house in order? Hope so cause times a’ passin!
US embassies worldwide are being advised to purchase massive amounts of local
currencies; enough to last them a year. Some embassies are being sent
enormous amounts of US cash to purchase currencies from those govts, quietly.
But not £’s. Inside the State Dept there is a sense of sadness
& foreboding that ‘something’ is about to happen, unknown re
a date - just that within 180 days, but could be 120-150 days.”
gold is not the panacea that will cure all the worlds’ ills. But it
could pay for a loaf of bread when the crash comes. It simply could be a
means of exchange needed when the US dollar crashes to the floor. Do I sound
pessimistic? Just look at the simple political changes we have observed in
just the past ten years. And these changes are beginning to occur more
rapidly. Thank Homeland Security for that. Anyway, where to from here?
O'Brien, August 25, 2009 - “Grassley (Grassley, the ranking
member of the Senate Finance Committee)…asserted that Bernanke's
ability to hold down inflation would be the metric by which the Fed's success
would be measured.” “…that inflation as a result from
government spending on bailouts could result in inflation rivaling rates in
1980, when it hit a peak of 13.5 percent.” briefingroom.thehill.com/2009/08/25/senator-warns-of-hyperinflation-rivaling-the-1980s/
by step and day by day. That is the measure of time that will show us which
way to turn. Of course you have to be diligently looking.Well, maybe not the
end of the world. But the world as we know it today will eventually undergo
changes that to say the least…will be challenging for humanity.
is a good word that I believe brings a good laugh. Heard of
“reflation?” Sounds like something to do with putting air
in a tire. “Reflation” is when the economy is stimulated by
tremendously increasing the money supply. New dollars made and circulated in
the economy. Today, reflation is the word given when prices are
increasing. Seems the word “inflation” is no longer
politically correct. Isn’t it neat how things seem to improve by simply
changing the meaning of certain words?
Sinclair – “It appears that gold is building a base from which a
rally up to $2,500 - $3000 area is very likely. There is even a possible rise
to the $5000 level, but that is the most extreme projection. This is
suggesting that confidence in the dollar is declining. This is not the
classic, "Inflation nonsense, but a collapse in currency value
I began writing at the beginning of this century I’ve found that most
of my predictions have come spot on. Now? What can I predict for
the coming decade? Maybe it can be summed up in the following song lyrics.
Currington - “God is great, beer is good and People Are Crazy”
will probably be provided free by the government to keep the citizenry in a
stupor as the country implodes. And don’t forget we still have the year
2012 staring us in our face. Well, well, well. Gold seems finally to
have climbed above the psychologically important 1,000 dollar level. The
US dollar is sinking and sinking fast.
