    Times are so bad in America nowadays that I can hear the typical conversation about this phenomenon.

    “Ralph…have you been in the oatmeal can again stealing change from the house fund?!” “Er…er no honey, I thought you might be taking a little extra out for yourself for a day out on the town to the “Dollar Store” and some corn dogs from Walmart with the kids.” “That’s bullsh*t Ralph and you know it. You’ve probably been spendin’ some of the money on one of them hoochie mammas down at the truck stop buyin’ fancy burgers an stuff. If this crap keeps up we’re headed to divorce court and by damn I’ll get everything in the can”… / : |

    We’ve been lied to as a nation in matter concerning the Federal Reserve note.

    The US Dollar continues to be devalued as votes are cast to raise the debt ceiling.
    Any rational American understands:
    * You cannot spend your way out of debt.
    * You cannot (as a nation) get out of debt when you are paying interest on money created out of thin air.
    * When your nation has outsourced your manufacturing sector how do you earn an income if you are not a Wall St. banker/trader?

    How can you earn an income when “Free Trade” has (by design) outsourced your manufacturing to foreign nations for the benefit of global corporate profit?

    Here’s a sobering thought to those who care enough to think (excludes a majority of Americans):
    “The US has lost 42,400 factories since 2001.”
    “The US has lost 32% of its manufacturing jobs since 2000.”
    -Peter Grandich (Google it)

    The Federal Reserve needs Americans to remain ignorant and apathetic of the truth pertaining to the US Dollar and its standing in the world.
    QE seems to be further devaluation of the US Federal Reserve note.

    They will continue to “lie” (I would use the phrase avoid examination of the truth) until they can no longer “afford” (pun intended) to lie.

    The 15% who thought they could hide a bank account are idiots: Banks send a copy of your 1099 to the IRS, and that better be included on your tax return! The IRS computers check EVERY RETURN for 1099 mismatches. Automatic audit if you leave one out, and then it all comes out.

    Same goes for a brokerage account: As soon as you sell anything it goes on a form reported to the IRS.
