    I haven’t talked to one person who supports this stimulas bill so why did our representitives vote for it. Aren’t they supposed to vote the peoples wishes. Can’t we get an attorney like Gerry Spence author of “Freedom For None” and sew our congessman and senators for not following our constitution.

    Come on…

    If we now moved to a gold standard, china could take a portion of our reserves, fund a ton of cheap mining operations in South Africa, Indonesia, Russia (etc…), mine the crap out of their gold at a cheaper cost than the private market can compete with (as it would be a speculative attack), hoard gold, un-peg their currency, ship cheap gold in to people in the US to trade to banks, put dollars in a crate and burn them?

    Ouch.

    Then banks are stuck with gold that is freaking impossible to transmit (which is totally rad in an increasing velocity society), dollars are disappearing rapidly because they are getting burned, and noone knows wtf is going on so panic deflation occurs, and noone wants to spend because they are afraid they will get gold back, anyone can lie because now there is noone to confirm or verify a bank’s gold reserves.

    Revolution?

        Didn’t mean to confuse you with how the real world works :) As a capitalist that is where the market could realize huge profit. How would a gold standard prevent that, right now? Please let me know.

        Since there is a lot of extreme speculation, if there is asynchronous adoption of the gold standard, couldn’t russia, or other countries that are collapsing, just go communist while we go gold standard, throw their peeps in a mine, use the black market, smuggle, convert, and VOILA burn dollars again?

        I would also take 10% of gold and short US markets, 15% in posession, and buy up the economies pegged to gold.

      Matthew, when you sober up and the hang over wears off, please re-post your thoughts so they make sense to the rest of us.

      btw – this might not be the best place to bash the Gold Standard.

        Wow. Nice response! That is what I want from my free-market analysts! ‘Jeez, thats way confusing, ummm, so yeah’ Free markets grow and evolve, not all people do… As we are learning these days…

        Another way:

Dollars reduce and we hit what, massive HYPERINFLATION. Potentially.

        If I were some ruler of a gold-wealthy third world country Id be stoked.You finally gave me a chance to kick some ass!

        As the ruler of a slave-based gold-wealthy economy, I would also take 10% of gold, smuggle, convert, and short US markets, keep 15% in posession and wait to buy up the economies pegged to gold as they hyperinflate. I could screw capitalism, stout currencies, balanced budgets, and people that thought they know better than free markets.

      if we switched to the gold standard, than china and saudi arabia would rob us blind with the outragous surplus they recieve from us… Say there was a trillion dollars in circulation in the united states with a qt of our gold backing it up.. We give china 400 billion+ more than we recieve and saudi arabia 400 billion+ more than we recieve a year.. We would run out of gold in just so many years. Thats just logic.. There is no way we could mine a trillion dollars worth of gold a year to match our trade imbalance. If we did, it would just make us slaves. We would continue having to mine gold just to give it china and saudia arabia.. Is that your answer nate? do you want china to own all our commodities or are you okay to admit that we need to stop spending money overseas before we can change our currency?

    It’s early to tell what the future holds for The Unites States… but I predict New World Order.
    Since we all know that our currency has no value compared to Euro that leads me to believe that our next move would be joining forces with our neighboring countries in order to hold our economy to “sound money” THIS COUNTRY IS NOTHING COMPARED TO WHAT IT USE TO BE; OUR LIBERTY HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY FROM US AND THE INVESTMENTS WE SO HARD WORK FOR WILL BECOME THAT “STIMULUS PACAGE” Government is gambling with our own money. We, the taxpayers are being victimized and thrown into the pit to burn into failure. Sadly the entire world is looking at us really hating America and what it has become

    This world of lawless people and papers is slowly swallowing us.

    Too few are RESISTING, the insane game…

    If lawless people are in power, its because good people didnt do anything WHILE THEY COULD…

    WE ARE STILL DEEP ASLEEP, AND ONLY WHEN IT WILL HURT BADLY, THEN MOST WILL REACT.

    SADLY, CONFORMITY to theoretical reasonning, HAS MADE US, STUPID and ignorant, AND ALWAYS FURTHER AWAY FROM REAL ISSUES AND VALUES.

    WE THE PEOPLE, have LOST our BIGGEST ELEMENT TO REACTING, BY SUBMITTING TO CONFORMITY.

    OUR , RESISTANCE TO POISON SEEMS TO BE, OUT OF ORDER

    RESISTING….RESISTING…RESISTING

    FIRST, we should stop debating,on tricked papers, and ignorant congressmans in the House. We have 3 persons who cares for us, the rest, works for there interests, not ours. SO, WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR NOW?…THE NOW!?

    Act = React, but sadly, we just are wating for worst.

    We are lost people stuck on a sinking ship, with lawless pirats.

    We need to do a COUP D’ÉTAT, and take over, or else choose to go to the PRISON ISLAND…AMEROCASE!!!!

    Do you really see another option????

    Stop Wating, stop Hoping,… IT will never, CHANGE!

    WE ARE THE CHANGE, NOT the ignorant lawless, PIRATS!

    I’M TIRED OF HUMAN STILLNESS,OR DUMBNESS, I’M TIRED TO SEE THEM ROB ARE FUTUR, OUR HEALTH,OUR PENSIONS, AND MOSTLY THE NEXT GENERATIONS FUTUR,…

    Its just because we dont want to be mature and responsable of
    ourselves, that we let everything in there hands…,

    EYES WIDE SHUT!

    WE ARE STUPID, AND STILL IMMATURE INFANTS, WE JUST DONT WANT TO ADMIT IT.

    We are so, Doomded,… THINK,… STOP TALKING AND DEBATING LOST ISSUES, AND REACT, KNOW!

    JESUS, ITS HARD TO MAKE PEOPLE GET OUT OF THAT ZOMBI, STATE OF MIND!

    GOOD LUCK TO ALL REAL PATRIOTS IN ACTION, FROM WHEREVER YOU ARE!

    FOR THOSE WHO FORGOT, Remember this; IT ONLY TAKES A FEW OF US TOGETHER, TO PUT DOWN THE PIRATES.

    ALL FOR ONE, AND ONE FOR ALL.

    LETS ROCK THE NATION, EXPOSE THEM EVERYWHERE, LETS PLAY THERE GAMES;
    LETS INFILTRATE IN THERE HOUSES, TO SEE IF THEY LIKE THERE OWN, MEDICATIONS, AND TAKE OVER, THE SAME WAY THEY TOOK OVER US!

    Lets play, there MIND GAME, for a change, lets make them be scared of us, ITs ABOUT TIME!

    WE ARE HERE, AND COMING to expose your fily sceams, JUST WATCH, WE ARE NOT SCARED OF DYING FOR THE FUTUR OF OUR KIDS!

    WE ARE PARIOTS, AND WE WILL DEFEAT YOU IN THE END!

      Given your lack of drive for self-improvement as evidenced by this terrible rant, I bet in the future, spelling, grammar, and prose will also be underutilized skills.

  10. Anti Oligarch

    I wonder whether talking about it is now enough.
    In my opinion is time for action.
    The evil oligarchs are killing us by the thousands.
    Let’s agree on an action plan and move on as soon as possible.

    Regarding this “stimulus” bill – QUIT ARGUING & START LOOKING!

    We need some REAL INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING ————-
    viewpoints and arguing are over —— when truth is evident. So we DO NOT HAVE THE TRUTH.

    Seeing as good ideas were never asked for, or when presented were passed by, and men of common sense & reason were stopped from reading this bill ———- I have to conclude ———the effectiveness of it was not really the purpose.

    So what is the REAL PURPOSE of this bill?

    Let’s start with that and quit arguing as to how many ways this bill is ineffective and start looking for the real PURPOSE this bill fits.

    Perhaps it’s all about a one world government —- How can we have a one world government if American’s are flourishing? I don’t think we would go for it.

    But if penalized for being productive in this country and lost our pride and have no Constitution anymore and the next generation has no hope for it’s future —— well? Maybe.

    Follow the money —— WHO and WHAT is it REALLY benefiting?

    Is there some plan going on that is in need of TONS of money? Is that money in the bill, via different groups? Is that money from interest that will go to the Fed Reserve for all this? If so, WHO will benefit and WHAT are they up to?

    We need some REAL INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING —- not just viewpoints on why this bill is no good. It isn’t. We got that. SO HOW COME? Investigate!
