This guy’s Bible tells him different
I am writing this letter concerning [Wolf’s] story in the Feb. 14 issue entitled “MHS Students Confront Ingnorance.”
The Gay-Straight Alliance support has never been mentioned in our house and that they needed support.
The part regarding the film “For The Bible Tells Me So” must have been interesting.
I want to share what my bible says about homosexuality. The Book of Romans 1:26-28.
1:26: For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature. 1:27: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 1:28: And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.
My next concern is how they were able to bring information of this type into the school. It is my understanding that the students cannot pray in school or read their bibles in school, and that if they want to pray together, they have to go outside to the flagpole.
Wolf responds: Jim, it is unfortunate you were unable to actually see the film, “For The Bible Tells Me So.” The main argument for the movie was that it is inherently dangerous and historically inaccurate to constantly take The Bible literally.
A funny thing happened on the way to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The world witnessed an ex-KGB bureaucrat giving sound free-market advice, while supposed free market capitalists argued how best to centralize the economy under corporate/state control. Vladimir Putin sounded like the hope of a free world while Timothy Geithner and Gordon Browne contrived selling us into debt slavery.
Geithner continues looting the treasury for his banker buddies; TARP, TARF, and numerous other programs on top of the advertised bailouts and Stimulus packages. Now that the American people are tapped out they are piling debt straight onto the U.S. government. Politicians can be expected to be so dumb as to believe they can spend their way out of debt, but bankers know better. They pile on the debt because they will be left owning everything when the debt goes unpaid. Our credit system is designed to confiscate your wealth through inflation. Even Alan Greenspan said, “In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation.” The widely available movie “Money as Debt” illustrates nicely and succinctly how our credit system works. Google it!
Our financial system has lent out more than can ever be paid back and is insolvent. All of the bailouts and programs are simply transferring that insolvency to the federal government, which now is attempting to borrow more than can ever be paid back.
Investors know this, and at some point will stop buying treasury bonds. Last month the Germans held an auction at which fully 35% of the bonds went unsold. It is amazing that anyone is still buying American bonds, and it can’t be long before the market simply dries up. At that point the jig will be up. Prepare for the collapse of the credit system: no credit, no shipping; no shipping, no food on the shelves or gas at the gas station. No way to pay for electricity or water. What is available will cost a fortune or have to be bartered for. George Soros recently rebutted the comparison of our crisis to the Great Depression: He said it is more like the the collapse of the Soviet Union.
So, maybe that is how Putin can see with such clarity our situation. What does Putin suggest? First, all insolvent entities ought to simply go bankrupt, and the toxic assets and liabilities written off.
Second, we must rid ourselves of debt based, paper (fiat) currency. It is essential we return to asset backed money.
Putin’s third and fourth points emphasize the instability and liability to corruption of monopoly.
I find it ironic that Vladimir Putin suggests what every Mises and Cato institute John Bircher “wingnut” has been calling for since the Federal Reserve’s inception in 1913, and is prescribed very clearly in the U.S. Constitution.
First, Putin states the obvious of basic market economics. The bad die, the good survive. Free market regardless, virtually the entirety of the treasury and Fed programs are illegal. All dispersal of Federal funds require an accounting and authorization in Congress: the treasury programs have not been passed through congress, and the Federal Reserve is very plainly not Congress. In fact, when Bloomberg.com sued to see what happened to $2 billion in Fed TARP dispersals, the the FOIA request was denied in court. The Reserve is not subject to FOIA requests because it is not a government agency! How’s that for looting the Treasury? So much for transparency and accountability.
Second, regarding virtual money, perhaps Putin was at the Constitutional Convention in a past life. The American Constitution expressly prohibits the establishment of paper (fiat) money as legal tender. The record of the Constitutional Convention shows the framers arguing not over paper money at all, but how most clearly to prohibit it!
Third and fourth, monopoly is an anathema to a free market, and a private monopoly on money creation is the worst kind of dictatorial power. Our Constitution very clearly grants only Congress the authority to issue and regulate the currency. Congress has no authority to grant a private banking monopoly control over our money supply. Now they have ruined America, and through Gresham’s Law bankrupted the entire international system.
The Reserve creates money out of nothing, at interest. That means that when that money is issued we already owe them more money than exists! We need desperately to throw out bankers, bought politicians, and paid-for judges.
Who would have imagined that we would end up debt-slaves in a centrally controlled economy that a KGB bureaucrat would warn against? Excessive intervention in economic activity and blind faith in the state’s omnipotence.
