the careful saving of a lifetime
can be wiped out in an eyeblink."

If our savings haven't been taken already, they will be in the not too distant future...

That's what I am worried about.

Too late. The dollar which grampa earned and saved is worth a nickel today. Kind of makes producing and saving an exercise in futility.
 -- Bryan Morton, Stuart, Florida
 
Cheer up, you kill joys,don't you know that Obama is going to save the day and the check's in the mail. It only makes sense that when a country is up to it's ears in red ink to spend another 800 billion or so. Happy days are here again, comrads.

An eyeblink being the time it takes to push the "enter" key, which opens up a whole new line of thought. If they can "lose" 2 trillion in 2001, it's certainly possible one might go to withdraw from his account and oops, somehow his money got lost!

Blessed are the nonsavers for they cannot be wiped out. The Buffets, Gates, and Trumps must be shaking in their boots. I am being facetious above of course. The biggest wipe outs have been from white collar theives, like Madoff, and corporate scandals like Enron and World Com. Maybe we should give the death penalty or life without parole for these folks similar to the penalties we give kids that rob convenience stores. Is this guy not only the President but the one and only member of FAME. I will google him and his org and report back.

Yeah he has something going called Fight for Honest Monetary Weights and Measures.

What's missing is a definition of money as a medium of exchange and an objective assessment of the positive and negative attributes of various substances in fulfilling that role. One positive attribute is a relatively fixed value relative to other goods and services. Precious metals fulfill that role well. Consider, for example, that one ounce of gold will still purchase about the same goods or services today that it would in the late 1800s. A negative attribute is the ease in which a medium of exchange can be manipulated, such as in counterfeiting. Legitimately or illegitimately is irrelevant. The result is still a gain for those who expand the supply and a loss for those use the inflated medium. Honest money should be a measure of value. Just like one cup of flour should always be no more or no less. If you went to the butcher shop only to discover that a pound of meat, which was 16 ounces two weeks ago, and 14 ounces last week, was 12 ounces this week, you would call him a thief and rightly so. It should be the same when the Fed creates and devalues currency. Precious metals are still being discovered and mined, but there's much more capital, (time, energy and equipment), expended in that process than there is at the Fed's presses and much less precious metals found than dollars printed, which is why the value of the dollar has declined relative to gold. It took only $20 to buy an ounce of gold in the 1800s. Today you must have about $900 to buy that same ounce. As I said, it's not that the value of gold has risen relative to other goods and services, but that the value of the dollar has fallen. It'll be that way until alchemy becomes a reality.
 -- Bryan Morton, Stuart, Florida
 
"And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny..." Seems like somebody else likes honest weights, measures, and money too.

Sound like NAZI Germany not far from wrong. And while those in that mindset are running rampant ------ we the people in the US today are treated as dunces standing in the corner with our nose in a hole. On President OBAMA staff are those that are ripping our nation apart and giving all the cream to their buddies in the BILDERBERG group. Case in point Chrysler is forced into bankruptcy ----- FIAT is going to take over, who looses is the investors to the tune of $6.9 billion chump change when you are a Bilderberger. NOW THIS GUY Giovanni_Agnelli started FIAT long ago and ponyed up to Nazi Germany and made a fortune while doing ---- along with many other seemed big GOOD CORPORATE NAMES that run ads on our TV VIEW STATIONS laying claim to be the worlds salvation in all ways.

GO FIGURE. So as most of us tried to stay up with Dick Cheney and Karl Rove as they drove US into the ditch many times ------ NOW who has enough of a criminal mind to look into the future and see how Chrysler will rival again as a big winner once FIAT takes the reigns. And who in the bunch of President Obamas staff will see a big thought to be golden parachute for cutting and slicing up our manufacturing base and selling it off for pennies on a dollar to war time criminals in WWII the BILDERBERGS. A Great man said long ago----SEEK TO KNOW THE TRUTH -----AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE. Blind assumptions led by our depraved media moguls today do not lead any to know the TRUTH.

THE AMERICAN CON JOB DOES HOLDER HAVE THE GUTS TO GET THE JOB DONE GOES MUCH DEEPER THAN MOST THINK OR EVEN CAN BELIEVE WE HAVE BEEN SEEING SMOKE ---- MAYBE CIA SMOKE WHAT HAS PRESIDENT OBAMA AND CREW BEEN DOING WHILE THE REAL FIRES HAVE BEEN RAGING? We must in an effort hurriedly stop being as mundane morose morons and take on the right and just tasks of changing one vital missing step in our current democratic process by adding a true voice of WE THE PEOPLE in having and supporting our own lobby in Washington DC. Now for those what want to know the truth beyond a shadow of doubt click on the site below and you will ----- if sane will want to SHOUT OUT. STOP THE MADNESS RIGHT NOW The truth is below not from our USA bought for VIEWS http://statismwatch.ca/2009/04/19/us-to-put-conditions-on-bank-bailout-repayments/ OFTEN MORE TIMES THAN NOT THE VICTIMS MESSAGES ARE MORE PROFOUND FAMOUS QUOTES BY FREDRICK DOUGLAS 1818 ----- 1885 America is false to the past, false to the present, and solemnly binds herself to be false to the future. At a time like this, a scorching iron, not convincing argument, is needed. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong, which will be imposed on them. I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence. If there is no struggle, there is no progress. It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. It is not light that we need, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake. No man can put a chain about the ankle of his fellow man without at last finding the other end fastened about his own neck. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. The life of a nation is secure only while the nation is honest, truthful, and virtuous. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppose. The thing worse than rebellion is the thing that causes rebellion. To suppress free speech is a double wrong. It violates the rights of the hearer as well as those of the speaker. Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.

"Congress cannot abdicate it's duty and delegate it to another group" U.S. Supreme Court. Schecter Poultry Corp. v US 295 US 405 1935. Google "Federal Reserve fraud" How do you amend without amending? Has it ever been amended? It states "Congress shall have power to coin money and regulate the value thereof".
