They did have gold backing their currency up to 1996

Up until 1996, the Swiss Constitution contained a provision requiring that the Swiss Franc be 40% backed by gold. In 1992, Switzerland joined the International Monetary Fund. In 1996 the Swiss Franc's gold backing was severed in an amendment to the Swiss Federal Constitution.

I take her with a big grain of salt

I appreciate her independent streak. I think when she is holding hands with republican party it is for money/fame. I also dont understand why neocons like her so much.

agreed

that confused me as well. very odd.

There is gold, and an abundance of jewels;
But the lips of knowledge are a more precious thing.

Cool

I do feel like God is tugging at me right now to get right, now I need the discipline to stay that way once I do. So easy to rest on things and fall away.

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

:-D

Precisely.

He is somewhat right

PTSD is used persuade the public against soldiers to turn them into govt check needing "disabled" people. 20% of Vets might have it, 500,000 is highest est.

It is talked about as if they are completely unable to have a job and alcohol dependent losers. That is the subtle message people receive and put that to ALL veterans. We are only talking about 500,000 people, not the 2.8 million who served during these two wars. I would bet even the 500,000 number is grossly overstated.

Of course I was over in Iraq twice so have some insight into how mental health and PTSD is talked about. There were plenty of people I knew who used that excuse and who suffered zero traumatic stress. They were just having a hard time adjusting to being deployed and the issues that come with being away from family members for a year.

The ones who actually suffer are usually the ones we never hear from. The people that are out front and want to use it as a badge of honor and a way to get sympathy, are probably the ones who stayed on base and were never in much danger.

Question to readers..

Would proving that it was an "inside job" accomplish what needs to be done? We need to repeal the act that was in response and took away personal freedom in America.

Poor Muslims Did 9/11?

The towers in NYC were brought down using extremely advanced technology. They did not largely turn to dust because of office fires and box cutters.

Anyone who thinks terrorists alone brought down the towers and crashed into the Pentagon seriously need to study the attacks.

The planes were flying too fast for such amateur pilots to successfully hit their targets. Even veteran pilots struggle to pull them off in simulators.
Especially the Pentagon due to it's height and the speed of the plane.

The buildings in WTC did not collapse with enough seismic force if they had collapsed or were "demolished". WTC7 came down with virtually NO SEISMIC IMPACT. Was Bin Laden down there holding it up?

The reason I bring this up is because, once again, we're fighting against a manufactured narrative that is most likely flawed.

While I was reading what you wrote, I got about half way down and thought, "Our dingoes wear clothes." When I read your last sentence, I burst out laughing.

Michael Nystrom's fists can punch through FUD.

After reading the "Life Hurts" thread

I wonder if this book covers emotional situations. Considering how family trauma can turn life upside down in a normal situation, I wonder if there are tips for doing this in a survival situation. You know, I've never seen a survival book that included instructions for burial, grieving, or even general relationship advice. It reminds me of that movie, "28 Days." The surviving characters look at a father/daughter team and envy the fact that those two will always have each other and that is what really matters.

Climate science

isn't predictive.
Back in the 1980's, computer models for weather prediction were being developed. In the process, it was noticed that the farther out the models went, the less accurate they were. It was found that this was due to the rounding of numbers used as input. The system was set up to use output as input and the looping of the information would extend the weather predictions out into the future.
These studies led to chaos theory and recognition of the butterfly effect (A butterfly flapping its wings in Tokyo will ultimately cause it to storm in New York) Also see the Ray Bradbury story "A Sound of Thunder" about traveling back in time to hunt dinosaurs.
The idea is, in a complex system, such as the planet's climate, miniscule variations in input will have multiplying influences on output.
The Scientists hawking the anthropomorphic climate change their are little more than hookers selling themselves for the next government grant. The idea that climate change, if such exists, might not have anything to do with human activity would make all of their grant funded research pointless. So for the money, climate change must exist; the change must be for the worse and ultimately disastrous; it must be within human power to do something about it. They are consequently locked into this paradigm, for scientists have to eat too.

In order to enact alcohol prohibition, the Constitution you swore to defend had to be amended.

13 years later when alcohol prohibition was found to be corrupting the police, and other officials so the Constitution had to be amended again.

I will add that I tried to get a 'tax' attorney early on

I will add that I tried to get a 'tax' attorney early on when I was making good money, but they all kept pushing for me to 'settle' to get this out of my hair. I couldn't bring myself to pay the same income taxes twice then, even at some reduced amount, and I can't do it now.

Unlike Irwin Schiff, I paid my income taxes, more than 3 times the average amount the average Georgian paid over the same period.

My financial life is already ruined and I've lost almost everything I have earned and tried to keep. I'm already taking one for the team. This is not just about me, this is about preventing other Georgians from experiencing the gross abrogation of rights and injustice that I have. This suit may have implications in other State's as well.

The State won't file criminal charges. I've demanded that they do since the civil procedures are based upon the claim that I am 'evading' taxes in a sum greater than $3,000. A Felony here in GA. They refuse to acknowledge the accused Felony. My guess is that they would need prove my tax evasion beyond a reasonable doubt and they think their 'prima facia' evidence (an assessment made because I didn't 'file') is good enough for a preponderance of evidence needed in a civil case. I have more than enough evidence to show their 'prima facia' assessment is without substance.

I don't believe 'tax' matters trump our rights and I am compelled to take this as far as it goes. I have been refused any sort of hearing, other than the misnamed Tax Tribunal, and have been told repeatedly that a Jury will never hear this case. I have to stand my ground.

Cause and effectTraumatising

Cause and effect

Traumatising experience, make the victims supple, then write the story of that event, say whatever you like, because if nobody knows who actually did it, then ANYONE could have, very simple, very easy, very effective........and no laws, hell, not even any awarenes to this very, very, manipulative possibility.......the possibility of making an action in response to another action, when no proof or investigation of the truth of that action, and right now im hearing alot of "sound bite" scaremongering in media, with little to no evidence or even a hint that PROOF is even NECESSARY

Edit
Hell they COULD be telling the truth, and they COULD be lying, how the hell am i suppose to know, and make an informed judgement, when im not sure on that very bassic, and very NESSECARY fact, baffles me that so many trust the elitist's to the point that they think their incapable of doing a bad thing

.......ive made that point twice today....2 seperate posts, .......must be on my mind, ill shuddup now :)

Edit
I mean undenyable proof........too hard.....tough, otherwise might aswell put EVERYONE prison and throw away the key

I mean if you're doing it ...

for the sole purpose of pissing off the cops. I'm NOT SAYING cops shouldn't be filmed. I'm saying look at the intent of the individual filming. If someone is filming for the sole purpose of pissing off law enforcement then chances are it may backfire. That's all.

plz show me the un-provable evidence of an old earth ..

Start by completing a high school physics course, then move on to more advanced classes, have a solid understanding of quantum theory and GR, AND THEN research the inflation theory and the questions/research regarding that theory. Compare that to the ridiculous creation story in the bible and you won't help but to just laugh at the silly myth in genesis, trust me XD.

Other than the fact that there's a complete lack of evidence for that myth, I just shake my head at morons that believe that millions and millions of species (current estimates range from 3 to 100 millions), got on a ship and sailed for seven months; as a side note, the ark would have been the biggest ship ever built, being ventilated by a 18 square inch window XD.

I also wonder what the carnivorous animals ate when they got off the ark and during their journey when they spread onto the world, you know seeing as there were very few animals alive (only those that got off the ark actually). I already know your answer to this one: Goddidit , of course.

"I am completely awake, the veil of deception has been removed, I see with clarity and purpose"

A free society, ALWAYS has "open borders"

and what anti-immigration people do not get is that we cannot have a free society and closed borders, the two are mutually exclusive.

What we should be doing is pushing for a very easy to get temporary visa that gives passage to just about anyone once a background check has been done. Should they be wanted in their home country or have a record, it will soon be discovered.

Making it getting into the USA wide open to all, very fast and cheap and relatively easy should be the goal. The goal should NOT be to make getting in rare, hard, difficult, expensive, etc. Making an entrance visa easy to get and temporary, will have the effect of wondering why anyone would choose to be "illegal". Being illegal, would then throw up red flags. We could call this easy to get temporary visa a Blue Card visa.

Most of all, like all libertarian positions, this position is also counter intuitive, ie making a blue card temporary visa cheap and easy to get will make us all relatively safer and at the same time, freer.

Good point

The State has a Waiver from Sovereign Immunity provision, and I need to read it again carefully. While each state 'actor' has played some role in this, I am not just looking for relief for myself, but to rid Georgia of the 'systemic' issues that arise from the vague and often contradicting rules and statutes the DoR uses to abrogate the rights of those who give it legitimacy.

Thank you for reminding me!

If I were you....

I would get a good tax attorney, because you have a tax case. Someone who works inside the system can help you find the least painful way to extract yourself out of your predicament. Good lawyers are actually worth the money sometimes. If I were you, I wouldn't focus energy on trying to fight the system in this tax case. Maybe you have heard of Irwin Schiff? He stuck to his principles, but he is also likely going to die in prison.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

In this ever changing twisty

In this ever changing twisty road of human awareness, where things and thoughts evolve as time goes, ive observed in my contemplating, that i think, and this is just my own personal thoughts on the subject, that we are ALL capable of doing good things AND bad things, its just that many CHOOSE to do good....... it baffles me to see the status "mob rule", think that those that lead them have their good/bad on/off switch permantly stuck on one side, some of those of the mob rule who say they are aware of the corruptness of their leaders, yet apart from that awareness then proceed not to think much on it, im talking those who have their popoms out, desperatly showing their support for something their leaders thought up, those that you would think, would have a sound reason based on a personal belief or shall we say ideaology, considering how hard they are pushing their leaders ideas, but most of the time, i cant distiguish what they say, and whats being said to them, hence the parroting phenomenon, or the monkey see, monkey do syndrome.......

Anyway, im sure theirs a point somewhere in that unfinished thought, i think im just mumbling there in the end, rabble rabble, whether the thought is good/bad or has any point i'll let the universe decide

Edit
As much i dont condone the actions ive probably vaguely explained, i did no honestly mean that as dig to those i feel have been ever so subtely manipulated,

Oh, huge bump!

Mahalia Jackson is one of the greats and "Precious Lord Take My Hand" is one my all time favorites that I often sing when I am hurting. It was sung during my beloved husband's funeral, which surprised me because that was the very first time I'd heard it inside of a Catholic Church. It touched my soul so deeply that the tears were steaming down my face. It was like God was letting me know he heard me. Thank you so much for posting this!!!!

Pretty bombastic of you, Lucif..., er, I mean, Michael Sss!

If the transcription here is accurate, Mr. Savage, you said, "What, are you the only generation that had PTSD? The only generation that’s depressed? I’m sick of it! I can’t take the celebration of weakness and depression…"

Hey there, Stupid PHD Title-Holder! Wait just a minute, Mr. Savage-Nation Supreme LIYOM, and consider that your artful ability to string words together into an emotional tirade does NOT equal a rational discussion of the facts! Speaking from the jaundiced audience that you've helped make of us; more folks are aware that we can't take as trustworthy, more of what you're telling than ever before. Pathetic!

What about the unprecedented, multi-tour, drug-numbing experiment being coerced on our volunteer troops, after sending them hither and 'yond, all over the world, for no honorable, nor constitutional purpose?!

Michael Savage, if you're as wise as your broad listenership gives you credit for, then perhaps you might, just might, want to more compassionately defend our egregiously abused troops, rather than dismissing them as whiners, eh?

'Nuff said.

Get one you feel comfortable with

A good attorney can be a god-send. You need an ally on your side who is competent.

Sounds like you've accomplished much, yet attorneys know how to deal with many types of adversaries and may know opportunities that can side-step everything.

For at least some people, a few thousand dollars is worth putting the issue to rest, so it doesn't haunt you the rest of your life.

Your's and friends tax offices may have someone they can recommend.

Just don't get too chatty, since you would probably pay per-minute.

Keep your eye on the big picture.

Whatever sacrifice or further debt is required for an important legal endeavour/defence may be nothing compared to a future life of earnings.

Being friendly and presenting your case to attorneys may yield bits of good advice. Some may give you a little time for free. Some may even choose to be a saint. Make it easy for them to help you.

You might stumble across one that has dealt with nearly the exactly same situation, and it might not take much to see the issue through.
