Hugh’s Quote of the Day:

“When people can vote on issues involving the transfer of wealth to themselves from others, the ballot box becomes a weapon with which the majority plunders the minority. That is the point of no return, the point where the doomsday mechanism begins to accelerate until the system self-destructs. The plundered grow weary of carrying the load and eventually join the plunderers. The productive base of the economy diminishes further until only the state remains.” – G. Edward Griffin

    Hello Hugh

    This transfer of wealth goes mainly to the bank and financial institutions. Then Large enterprises are subsidized with billions of dollars from the “government”. They take their money and fire their employees and move to Mexico, China, Indonesia, Asian countries, wherever they can get their cheep deal. What else happens? Those enterprises and financial institutions immediately diligently reward themselves with million dollars bonuses for having accomplished such a great job.

    Now we have more jobless people on the dole, or social security, their pension founds have often been plundered. If you follow the news, you know what I am talking about. If you have been hit personally by this kind of activity you definitely know what I am talking about.

    Who transfers what? The middle class is being undressed financially and soon it will stand naked and it will joined the ranks of the growing poor in a city near you.

    The majority never plunders the minority at the ballot box. It never happens. It cannot happens because they control nothing.
    The people who vote have the illusion they can obtain positive changes by voting. You are voting on a big load of empty promises, and the best you can hope for, is the straw man voted in to sign his names on a load of decision making, will have enough brains, restraint, understanding, to make good decisions.

    The plundered is the middle class. If they join the majority of people who already are dependent on the dole, it is because they have been stripped down to that level themselves. And they have.

    The system does not self destruct. It is destroyed from within.
    Mr.Griffin has good intentions but it is not the ballot box that transfer the wealth. Money and influence go together and it has weight in the balance of politics.
    If the number of food stamps recipient increases, it is because the employment possibility providing a living wage vanishes.

    Here I am sending you to teacher Mr. George Carlin

    I hope you had a good time with this, Hugh and your public.

      Now we have the gloom & doom picture, how about some not so obvious fixes for the situation—or should we all just swallow a bottle of pills & escape-no, no, no—-solutions please.I used to think I was in the middle class–now not so sure. I never miss an opportunity to vote, it seems that is not sufficient?

    Hello Marian,

    The problem with the economy has no easy fix. It is not local but global. There is more than one problem causing trouble for the average American or Canadian. Are you aware that salaries have not followed the cost of living for decades? That is a good explanation why you can buy less. Then money is depreciated with inflation, so what you buy cost more. Full time employment in the USA is now part time for many Americans. Then your quality of life diminishes. If you have a hard time, it is not because you are lazy.
    I understand your reaction. People must stop expecting elected official to solve problems for them. There are solution of prepping and cooperating with people willing to adopt that mindset with you.
    Changing the way you live may help. I don’t know your situation, but here are some basic principles and they are in accordance with what James is preaching. 1) do what you can for yourself 2) have a plan 3) make a list of your resources, which include: employment, people to organize with, where to live with less money. Cutting cost.

    This means, will I live in and extended family grand-pa, grand-ma, Us the parents and our children and eventually my grand-son, because my son got married, he works but wants to save money, and there is always someone at home to look after children. It is another life style, but people lived like that for generations in the past.
    Who knows what in that group. Is grand-pa good with guns? good repair man, good at fixing cars? who is a good cook?

    Make a list of what you need by category. Food, medical kit, tools, gardening,spare tires etc. You know your needs better than anybody else.
    the point is things have change in time. People used to change their car every 2 to 4 years as a big maximum, they went on vacations every years ,education was very affordable back then. They lived a care free life, because employment was abundant, which is no longer the case.
    Make a list, get your family on board, be open to suggestions. Look on You tube for ideas. There is the minimalist movement with the tiny house, because it gives people a home without a mortgage. For some people it can be the way to go.

    The starting point is a food pantry. This is what James calls a deep larder. You have to rotate this food to avoid spoilage. Cash to pay the rent or mortgage, well the basics. If the only problem that comes your way is unemployment, at least you will be fed, and you will have a roof over your head. It is a very good start.
    I hope this will help you Marian.
