Most of you have heard the one about the frog in the pot of water that the temperature is slowing rising. Since it is gradual he doesn't really notice until he is cooked. Perhaps that is what we have allowed to be done to ourselves.

Lets look at it like the child we've turned into pack mules on their way to school.

Back in the sixties when America was a free country we had a job that was called, "loading watermelons". What you did was go out into a field, pick watermelons and you ended up loading them into a truck for market. It was much like any job one might do starting out in the work force. It was hard work then as watermelons are heavy. Specially after handing them over and over until the truck was loaded. On the other hand it was easier then than today. Today you go into the field with the weight of the world on your shoulders before you even bend that first time. Let me show you in dollars.

Back then the job paid about $1.50 an hour.

Today the act of the labor is still the same and should be equal to $1.50 and hour but we are not being paid that.

Figuring in inflation the $1.50 an hour would be equal to $35.00 an hour now. I'm not sure how many jobs there are now that pay unskilled people starting out that much an hour. The thing that hasn't change is the act of loading the watermelons. That act is still what it is. Being paid a rate of $7.50 and hour which I'm thinking is about minimum wage would mean that $35.00 minus $7.50 shows you carrying a burden of socialism of 27.50 an hour. That is what every man women and child are burdened with now before they ever get into the field and bend over.

We've got to carry that burden because it has already been spent!

Is it any wonder why we have been suffering with our economies?

Let me show you how this burden is being loaded on us a twig at a time.

Maybe this will help make the danger of fiat money clear.

Imagine you and me are setting across from each other. We create enough money to represent all of the world's wealth. Each one of us has one SUPER Dollar in front of him.

You own half of everything and so do I.

I'm the government though. I get bribed into creating a Central Bank.

You're not doing what I want you to be doing so I print up myself eight more SUPER Dollars to manipulate you with.

All of a sudden your SUPER Dollar only represents one tenth of the wealth of the world!

That isn't the only thing though. You need to get busy and get to work because YOU'VE BEEN STIFFED with the bill for the money I PRINTED UP to get YOU TO DO what I WANTED.

A concerned citizen. I floated down the Current River once with my Uncle, Cousin, a Judge, and some other Friends. It was one of the best times in my life, just going along the way the river was flowing, an occasional rapid but by in large an (more...)
