      It’s taken a hundred years

    It’s taken a hundred years for the bankster oligarchs to grab complete control of governments.  You may devise any system you like that you think is fair but unless you deny the banksters the power to create money you will have accomplished nothing.  The first thing is to realize that banking must be a government utility. No private person should ever be allowed to gain interest by creating money out of nothing.

    Of course, then you’ll realize that governments must work for the benifit of all the people for the above to work at all.  Then you’re left stunned to imagine the government in charge of printing money – not with our current or even future politicans.  So this better way will have to wait until we humans evolve to a higher standard… may take some time.

      Back in the 60’s I read

    Back in the 60’s I read Atlas Shrugged while training for service in SEA.  I thought it was the greatest thing I’d ever read, however, I was a 20 year old kid who didn’t know diddly squat.  45 years later I have a completely different view of her work and of her. 

    The first thing, how can you trust anything a person says who cannot recognize simple reality.  I feel the same way about anyone who has failed to question, search for and discover the truth of human life.  IT’S WHY WE’RE HERE!!! 

    Sorry about yelling, it’s just that a failure to discover reality is just about fundamental to discovering who you are.  That failure is just too glaring to give her a pass.  So on that point alone I wouldn’t trust her to walk my dog.

    Some things are self-evident, especially if you’ve dedicated your life to discovering truth.  Her ideal of selfishness, which is just an expansion of Adam Smith’s self-interest, is a very big cause of where we find ourselves in our present day culture.  Self interest is self destructive.  Capitalism, built on self interest must give way to an absense of self interest in favor of the interest of others.  And it will, in time, for we humans are destined for great things once this rough patch is traversed. 

    Do yourselves a favor, all those who favor her work, imagine there is a body of work that will help you explain and understand who we are and what has happened to us.  There is.  And a sincere search will not fail to lead you to truth.

      So, who’s going to buy those

    So, who’s going to buy those T-bonds when the Fed stops buying?  At these artificially high prices?  Conventional thinking would be that it’s time to buy TBT, however, conventional thinking hasn’t worked for two years.  Hmmm, what could cause bond yields to fall once QE II ends?

      You’ve probably gotten no

    You’ve probably gotten no decent responses because anyone who’s traded in any market knows $2,000.00 is not nearly enough to even begin to think about trading.  You didn’t even mention what you’re considering trading? options, stocks, futures, forex???  Since you seem determined to trade, take a look at thinkorswim, trade monster.  Spend 2 or 3 years on thinkorswim at least, you’ll soon understand what we mean.

      For all.  There were two

    For all.  There were two sets of vids.  “Debunking Money”  was the 2nd set, which has been removed.  I’d still like to know if anyone has copied those vids… I would greatly appreciate a copy if you have them, and, does anyone know why Damon took down THE MOST EXCELLENT vids about money ever. 

    LogansRun – Thanks for pointing out what I’ve learned after spending the last two hours in the forum.  It’s all a bit too much … must spend some time away for awhile.
