I have linked to an interesting article about the federal reserve and how this institution is destroying the currency,wealth and keeping this country in perpetual debt.  Rep. Ron Paul is the only candidate for President that is talking about this and he is painted as some kind of kook but he is right on target!! None of the other candidates in either party want to discuss what the Federal Reserve is doing to this country because they are in on it! Below is a link to to article:

10 Things That Every American Should Know About The Federal Reserve

http://www.worldviewweekend.com/worldview-times/article.php?articleid=7982

A friend of mine was showing me the difference between a one dollar silver certificate and a current dollar bill, I have also attached photos of a one dollar silver certificate from 1935 for everyone to see and a current dollar:

It may hard to see but in today’s dollar at the very top it reads “Federal Reserve Note”. On the one dollar silver certificate it reads ” Silver certificate” and at the bottom it reads ” One Dollar, In silver payable to the bearer on demand”.  All of today’s money has no value and by letting the Federal Reserve control the money it is keeping us in debt and getting worse. The congress is supposed to be in charge of the money, but they have given this authority to the Federal Reserve which is nothing more than a private bank run by a bunch of greedy bankers!  I am just helping to spread the word so we call become more educated and hope we as a nation become focused on the serious issues and not what the Kardashians are up to!

Once again I faced another tense moment while preparing my income tax as I was calculating, and researching ways as to not have to write a check to the IRS this year! Some might say I am part of the 47% that don’t pay income tax and I say “you are right”, but this does not bother me because I pay tax on income in way of payroll tax, ss tax, medicare tax, state tax and local tax so I think that I should be able to find ways (legally and within the rules of course) not to pay income tax!

I squeaked by this year by having the energy tax credit that I was able to deduct, but if not for that I would be writing a check! To top it all off, I already claim zero exemptions and put 15% in my 401K in order to reduce my tax burden and still on the borderline of paying income tax!

So to all of you all that think the 47% that do not pay income tax are dead beat losers that want to live off the government, guess what? I work, do not get a dime from the government and pay a helluva lot in taxes every year through what I produce from work each year and I don’t think this is fair so I will continue to blog about this and write Congress every chance I get until something is changed.  For the record.. I wrote the President asking why my bonus is taxed at a higher rate than my pay and once I again I get no response from a government that is suppose to work for me but I will keep wiring because I am least trying to do something!

The reason for the title to my post is the quote below from Albert Einstein:

Everybody is a genius.  But, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life believing that it is stupid.

— Albert Einstein, physicist, Nobel laureate (1879-1955)

I read this and it started me to think about a few things about life that I wanted to share and how sometimes we might make a big deal out of something or pound our heads against the wall in futility for something that may not be achievable.  Think about what it would really look like if a fish was truly trying to climb a tree! The most likely response would be “Look at that stupid fish”, doesn’t even know how to climb a tree.  This assumption would be made because you may have the ability to climb the tree and the fish doesn’t.

I find my self thinking that way about my dog! My dog will chase and bark at  Buzzards that are flying in the air above our house and I will think “Stupid dog, you can’t fly and catch that Buzzard!”  My dog like most dogs are very smart and if I judge my dog based on the fact she can’t fly and catch the buzzard then she may believe she is stupid which would be an incorrect assumption.

I find this quote to be particularly relevant in the workplace where someone may label you as stupid because you are unable or have the skill level to do what they do when in fact you may actually be smarter person.   This could apply to hobbies as well as in my situation where I enjoy taking dance lessons. I have been in group lessons and hear comments about someone being a “terrible dancer” of they “must be dumb”.

So when I sit back and think about this quote I truly believe we “are all geniuses” and just because someone is not cut out to do a particular thing does not make them stupid and to the people who hear that from someone; don’t believe it!  You may not have the ability to “climb a tree” or “fly like the bird”, but you are good at something and while you try don’t let those around you judge and call you “stupid” because we all are a genius at something, we just have to find out what it is.

I have been following this story over the last few weeks and find it very ironic that since Cain has become a front-runner in the Republican Presidential Primary Race that all of a sudden these women come out of the woodwork claiming they were sexually harassed by him.  Something may have happened, but know one really knows but Cain and these women but there does not appear to be any proof, but this liberal media is all in an uproar about this and reporting on it everyday.  I really don’t understand why they are making a big deal about this because I thought all of this kind of stuff didn’t matter like it didn’t when Bill Clinton was President in the 90’s!!

We were all told by the media during Clinton’s term that sex didn’t matter, these women accusers where crazy etc… and all that mattered was the President Clinton needed to get back to work for the American People!  So to me the liberal media set the template for themselves by allowing this to go as long as they did before holding the President accountable. With President Clinton there was verifiable proof, but with Cain there is none of this to date. For what it is worth, I don’t think the Democrats leaked this story I think it was one of the Republican candidates that leaked this story to knock Cain off the top.

As the polls are showing Cain has not lost that much support because the American people have caught onto the double standard the liberal media plays when it comes to Republican candidates and the media only have themselves to blame as Americans that pay attention remember the 90’s and are not going to be swayed by a liberal media that plays along with destructive politics. Because to me, if it didn’t matter in the 9o’s to the liberal media when it came to President Clinton and his sexual issues, why should it matter in 2012?  The liberals burned that bridge and now they cannot cross back!

The developments this week indicate the Palestinian Authority is wanting to be granted statehood by the UN.  To me this process has been heading this way for a long time but really picked up steam last year when Israel stormed the flotilla that was headed to Gaza that had its origin in Turkey.  Fast forward to today and Turkey has all but broken diplomatic relations with Israel, Egypt and Jordan who have peace treaties with Israel and say they are still committed to the treaty but their public statements are tepid at best.  Turkey is on the front line leading these Arab nations into what I believe will be an eventual confrontation.

Turkey is considering sending naval warships to escort the next flotilla that is headed to Gaza in what would no doubt be a confrontation with the Israeli Navy.  The pace of this future confrontation is picking up steam and I believe will occur in the not to distant future.  If Egypt and Jordan decide the peace treaty is no longer in their best interest then Israel is once again surrounded on all sides by hostile countries.  For whatever reason Turkey is taking the lead on this and the only conclusion I can draw as they want Israel out-of-the-way because in their minds this will solve the Palestinian dilemma and the crisis and turmoil that always surround Israel and the Palestinians.

Maybe the Palestinians should have a state and a compromise worked out, but appears to me the elimination of the Jewish state is on the agenda which is in line with what Ahmadinejad of Iran wants.  And to those of you who the United States will stand by Israel at all costs, think again. As rapidly as the world changes and especially in the Middle East don’t be surprised in the United States tells Israel they are on their own.

 

I have attached an article from Yahoo finance and listened to several talks shows and have been hearing the liberal talking heads blame the Tea Party for the “debt deal” that was forced on the President and how bad it was for the country.  Personally, I don’t know how someone can honestly make this kind of statement and believe it. The Tea Party is the only force right now keeping Obama from spending this country into bankruptcy!

This is not a hard concept to understand; you can’t keep spending money that you don’t have because eventually the bill comes due.  How come the liberals don’t blame their own for starting all these entitlement programs and taking money from the working people and giving it to the ones that don’t work!!  Wake up people, because the President says he wants to take money from the “rich people” and redistribute the wealth but we all know in realty it will not be the “rich people” who have their money taken from them it will be the “working people” who pay the taxes in this country.

President Obama has done exactly what he said he was going to do which is to tear down capitalism and redistribute wealth in this country so in order to cover this up the liberals want to blame the Tea Party for taking the country down the wrong track.  Take your blinders off because the country is already off the track. How embarrassing to lose the AAA credit rating and this happened for the first time under Obama so that is why the Liberals are blaming the Tea Party for this mess because they want to take the light off of Obama for the AAA credit rating being lowered on his watch!

I am not defending the Republicans because they have been in on this out of control spending too but for the Democrats and Liberals to put all this on the Tea Party is completely ridiculous.

Last year the President proposed a payroll tax cut which was implemented for working Americans. While not a lot of money the cut is appreciated and every little bit helps.  However, in the debt ceiling agreement the continued payroll tax cut was not included and postponed for discussion at a later time.  To me this should have been a very important part of the discussion because it is possible the Congress would let this sunset and then the middle class would have their taxes raised on the sly to help pay for this continued unnecessary spending. So the Congress could be ready to “stick it” to us again!!

Don’t think the President is off the hook either for continuing to push for a continued payroll tax cut which I appreciate.  As we found out when we filed taxeS last year this increased the income that was brought home and then had to be declared income and taxeS paid so really no one came out ahead.  If the President really wanted to make a good impression not only would he continue to push for an extension of a payroll tax cut, but tell the IRS they are not allowed to collect any tax on the extra money working Americans received through a break in the payroll tax. Maybe instead of turning the IRS loose on Americans we should have them go after Iraq and Afghanistan because with all that money we gave them tax-free, there would be more than enough to close the budget gap!

The media is all a “buzz” as the deadline of August 2nd looms for a deal to raise the debt ceiling so the United States does not default on its payments and push the world into some kind of  “depression”.!!  Well, I have news for everyone… no way this will happen!  All we have in Democrats and Republicans are a bunch of politicians worrying about themselves and how they can pad their own wallets and their buddies on Wall Street.  And all of this going back and forth between the President and Congress is a “dog and pony show” to make us think there is a looming debt ceiling crisis and they are desperately trying to work it out.  In my opinion it is already worked out, and this posturing is just to pander to the voters to get re-elected for the next election cycle.

A perfect example is the “cut, cap and balance” amendment passed by the House but was defeated in the Senate.  This bill had no chance of making it to the President because this bill was proposed to give cover to the congressman who were elected to bring government under control, but even these congressman knew in the long run that the debt ceiling will be raised and the spending will go on. This bill was passed by the House with a 234-190 but was defeated in the Senate 51-46.

So my point is that our leaders are not looking out for us. They could care less what we want and believe that we are all idiots! The democrats come into power and nothing changes, the republicans come into power and nothing changes!  This is why I believe it is time for a legitimate third-party.  There seem to be a lot of libertarians around but their organization can’t seem to get off the ground. So the alternative is for all of us..the people getting together and finding a way to start a third-party that can get people elected that break the hold the Democrats and Republicans on the power in this nation.  Because until this occurs we will get the same thing year after year…. bigger government, more spending and making sure wall street is taken care of and not main street.

 

I have updated information in regard to Iran and the believe of their leader Ahmadinejad that by causing a cataclysmic war this will hasten the return of the Mahdi and the New World Order!  Finally, I have located an article by the Washington Post, one of the leading media outlets in this nation that is speaking about this very issue.   I have reposted below where I talk about this almost a year ago and hopefully with a major media outlet bringing the issue on the Mahdi then people will start to take this serious.  Remember, these kind of leaders maybe crazy but are very dangerous and mean what they say.  I would like to believe that some kind of action, even if covert is being taken to undermine Ahmadinejad and his government. Below is my repost and a current link to the Washington Post.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/ahmadinejad-defends-aide-suffers-political-cost/2011/05/12/AFvn0j2G_story.html

If you closely follow Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad then you are familiar with his believe in the final messiah returning which is the Mahdi that will usher in a New World Order.  The reason I say “follow closely” is that fact this belief of Ahmadinejad is not widely reported and must be deeply researched in order to find out any info on this subject.  I believe the media does not report on this because they probably think it is much ado about nothing and that surely someone is not that crazy to plunge the world into war over some kind of crazy believe.

Well, history is ripe with these scenario’s and the one mentioned above should not be looked at any differently.   Iran has shown their playbook and telegraphed exactly what they intend to do; acquire nuclear weapons, destroy Israel, and start and world war so the Mahdi will return.  I would like to think our leaders are smart enough to know that Ahmadinejad is a loon and that he plans on doing what he says and we as a nation and world just don’t stand by and attempt a piecemeal approach to accommodate Ahmadinejad.

There is also a lesson in this for the United States about getting involved in the affairs of other nations. This nation helped overthrow the elected government of Iran in the 1950’s and installed the Shah. When Iran was in an uproar in the 1970’s President Carter helped remove the Shah from power and the Ayatollah Khomeini took over and the Islamic Republic was born.  I know we have the hindsight of history but can anyone tell me why these leaders would think and “Islamic Republic” would be good for anyone.  I mean, I don’t think it is a good idea for religious leaders to lead a nation because they twist their belief system into thinking God has told them to do something and the result is people being killed and leaders like Ahmadinejad thinking he has to help the Mahdi to return. In an article I list below it is reported that Ahmadinejad takes hist entire cabinet to the city of Qom to report to the hidden Imam about what is going giving every indication that Iran is preparing for the end times.

I have listed several articles that speak on this subject in great detail as this is a serious threat and not the rumblings of some nut job.  It is not if, but when Ahmadinejad starts to implement his plans to have the Mahdi return we can only hope this nation and the rest of the world will quickly dispose of this problem so as to minimize the suffering that will surely follow.

As the war in Libya drags on into its sixth week the 60 day reporting to Congress under the war powers act expires today and the war continues. The Obama administration says this is “not a war” since there are not “boots on the ground”! Who are we kidding?  If this country is providing munitions, logistics etc.. people are fighting and dying on the ground then this is a war!

I have always believed the commander-in-chief has to make decisions on war and security issues, but we are involved in Libya were there is no vital interest to this county and the media is giving the President a pass on this war. Rest assured if this was a Republican it would be the top news story everyday!!

The liberals have to be going crazy because Obama has gotten this country involved in another war, we are still in Afghanistan, and Guantanamo Bay is still open!  I know we can’t understand all the reasons decisions are made, but the next time there is a conservative in office we all need to remember how the liberals and the media gave this President a pass on the unnecessary war in Libya.
