Michael Cassius McDonald originated the saying, “there’s a sucker born every minute.” And, it was W.C. Fields, who coined the immortal line, “Never give a sucker an even break or smarten up a chump.” And it was congress w/ a complicit press and a white house that better resembles and parallels a handpicked hybrid of Lenin’s Council of People’s Commissars.
Thanks to Obama’s infantile economic reasoning, the fed has simply printed more whenever it needed – that it wasn’t actually backed by anything didn’t much matter. Now, China has joined Russia in a menacing symphony of disparagement and threats against the US economy.
Obama’s answer to everything is to lie, blame Bush, raise taxes, and class warfare. As a matter of fact, a case can sarcastically be made that Obama blamed Bush for his mother’s breast milk being warm. But I digress. Do you remember when candidate Obama assured voters with him in office, he would make sure the world loved us? Well, China and Russia have showed the extent that has happened as they followed suit condemning America for her growing debt.
Putin said U.S. is “leeching on the world economy” and Zhou Xiaochuan of the People’s Bank of China, blasted Obama and congress calling their increased debt “madcap brinksmanship of American lawmakers.” In the meantime “those suckers born every minute” here in our country have thoughtlessly seized upon the idea that by selling all of their gold they could get their hands on was a great idea. They never thought for a moment that there must be a reason, that every time you blink, there’s an advertisement saying “sell us your gold.”
Why would companies be doing that unless they had figured out that the dollar, i.e. paper money would be valueless? Instead of keeping the gold, people found inventive ways of selling it. And even more egregious most sold it, and then squandered the money on frivolous things.
I remember a person who blamed the misfortunes of their life on society. They blamed their child’s poor education on the schools even as the person could barely identify the name of Shakespeare in a two word sentence. The person had refused to do anything to improve her station, but was very quick to point out they weren’t to spend on the child’s education as those with money did.
Here’s my point. One of the primary reasons there is a wealth division is because, those who have achieved a certain level of wealth understand how to keep it making it work for them and sadly those who haven’t, blame others for their ignorance instead of focusing on that which has more ROI (return on investment) than a stupid video game for a child who cannot read or write.
Gold is now well over $1,600 an ounce, and people are still selling their gold jewelry and trinkets, to gold smelting outlets for a fraction of its value. Can you grow more gold? Can you reacquire your wealth?
Practically everything being offered and doled out by the government right now is being done to enslave you to government. From childcare to healthcare – people are being engineered and manipulated into believing government is acting in your best interest – when in reality it is stripping our last remaining freedoms.
America is going to go down financially, and people will be left with nothing but their XBoxes, flat screen televisions, and a car or two. The government under Obama is playing the public for suckers – and Boehner, Cantor, et al, are doing the same thing.
To paraphrase Delroy Lindo’s line in the movie Get Shortie, “you don’t know [congress], you only think you do.” The people, are being played like fiddles, because they refuse to understand just how corrupt government really is. And by the time they wake up to, if that day ever comes, it will be too late.
