Why John Taylor Gatto's message works

I am about 2/3 of the way through The Underground History of American Education.  It is incredibly informative.  Often the question is asked: why are schools today so terrible?  Why are public schools that as recently as 25 years ago were great, so horrible now?  What happened?  Some think that things just 'happen'.  As I get older, I now see that almost nothing just 'happens', especially such a large scale disemboweling of a once proud educational system.  One of the things bandied about in the colleges of Education is the excuse that it is the 'culture of poverty' - but that doesn't make sense, and Thomas Sowell has dismantled that myth repeatedly. 

It is convenient that a person who researches these things and finds the answers is dismissed as a 'conspiracy theorist' or worse, a 'revisionist historian'.  By this time you should IMMEDIATELY wonder why the person with the uncomfortable answers is victimized by an 'ad hominem' (personal) attack.  Why attack the person?  Why not attack and refute the facts?  Oftentimes the Establishment doesn't want the grand players known.  It is easier to stay in the shadows while the American people, once a force to be reckoned with, are dumbed down.

Part 5 - The Silver Saga Story Continues

These 'silver bears', while silly, provide good information.  The precious metals world is very small.  The prices of gold and silver keep rising, not because the metals are getting MORE valuable, but because our fiat money is becoming LESS valuable.  The Establishment HATES gold and silver because it is a check on their power.

We were on a gold standard, with a free market from 1793 - 1913.  It worked very well.  We had an amazing expansion of wealth as a country.  You've been taught that that era of the USA was horrible and wretched.  You've been snookered yet again.

The moneyprinting house known as the FED is practically guaranteeing that PM's go up in price.  Pay attention and think about how a gold standard would work.

Inflation Explained

Ok, it's a cartoon, but it gets the job done.  Yet another thank you goes out to www.zerohedge.com

Inflation is the reason why prices go up.  Who gets hurt?  The poor and middle class, especially the poor.  The next time you hear a politician or an economist talking about 'helping the poor', ask them what they've done to END THE FED, the institution that creates inflation.

Heading at ZH - "Inflation explained. So easy that no Ivy League Ph.D. is guaranteed to understand it."

How Money is Created

I never really learned about money.  I remember hearing about the gold standard, I remember hearing that gold had been replaced by "the full faith and credit of the United States".  I never did totally understand how gold could be replaced by 'faith'.  I also had the fact that "Federal Reserve Note" was the labeling at the top of the dollar bills pointed out to me.  That's it.

About 2 years ago, a poster on another site whose opinion I respected pointed out a great presentation called The Crash Course on chrismartenson.com.  It is a detailed presentation about how our money is created and the debt scam that is our monetary backbone.  This system of money creation is truly corrupt.

Upon coming across Tom Wood's site, he mentions an article about the system of fiat (created from nothing) money we have.  In the article by Robert Murphy, a truly bright man, he mentions the first 30 minutes of this movie on YouTube.  The 30 minutes are truly eye opening.  Feel free to go past the first 30 minutes, but beware, you're in for a session of "everything I thought I knew was wrong".  The knowledge presented in this is something that the Establishment would prefer you not know.  Most of your peers have no idea that this is how the system is made.  Only the Remnant is truly aware of this.

Peter Schiff - teaching about economics yet again.

We have now practically guaranteed a government default.  The losers in DC have no real interest in cutting the deficit - they are on the take, and they have no skin in the game.  Inflation will ravage the US, prices will rise, and you'll be expected to become a serf of the gov't so that you are under their thumb.  If you don't feel fury about our "politicians", then you're not paying attention.  Peter Schiff, who is a master on the economics of the USA, explains and teaches you here what will happen, how, and why.

Start listening to people like this.  Find the experts who have a track record and some real world experience and judge for yourself whom to trust.

Paul Krugman’s 'Civil War' Fantasies by Thomas DiLorenzo

Paul Krugman’s 'Civil War' Fantasies by Thomas DiLorenzo This is the perfect example of "everything you've been taught is wrong". Paul Krugman is probably one of the more dense public intellectuals out there - and he proves it often. Tom DiLorenzo proves it here. Courtesy of www.lewrockwell.com

Eisenhower: War is Theft and Waste

Ike isn't really on my list of favorite presidents, but this post from the blog 'Southernbread' really hit home. I think you'll see some staggering differences between a past leader and our current 'leader'.

Excel Breakdown Of All Discount Window Users Between March 2008 - 2009

In case you're wondering why Ron Paul wants to END THE FED - here's proof, courtesy of a lawsuit by Bloomberg News Corp. demanding the information of Federal Reserve activities during the real estate bust.  The FED sent what amounts to upwards of 15 TRILLION to banks - many of them overseas.

They are destroying our currency - yet we have to use Federal Reserve Notes.  That's like having to fly in a plane that you know will crash.  They are destroying lives, values and futures.  Here's the proof.
