Shocking Developments With Galt's Gulch Chile

"Many have wondered about the status of Galt's Gulch Chile (GGC), the libertarian community that was planned and sold in lots as a liberty oasis for those who wished to live freedom before they died. My husband and I purchased an option on 1.25 acres in July 2013. Others bought 10- or 25-acre lots and some invested in the agricultural side of the venture; extremely savvy investors committed small fortunes. GGC has been an unexpectedly wild ride since then.

Goals

I gave my kids a bath about a half hour ago and put them in bed... normally my wife handles bath time, but my daughter's birthday is tomorrow and my wife ran out to get some last minute stuff for a small family gathering we'll host tomorrow night.

I set this goal when my wife left to run errands to try to do something to make her life a little easier before she got back. Bath time was a small thing... 15-20 minutes, not a ton of effort involved... but it made my wife smile and hey, that was the ultra-simple short-term goal.

Swiss will vote on Nov. 30 for gold backed Franc

http://www.againstcronycapitalism.org/2014/08/will-the-swiss...

If the voters of Switzerland do choose to back their currency with gold I promise you that there will be MUCH more interest in the Swiss franc.

A gold backed currency? What a crazy concept. My bet is the market will love it. The banks will hate it, but overall the Swiss people will benefit. So will the non-Swiss who are paying attention now.

Switzerland yet again shows that it is the most sane nation-state on Earth.

A Mother’s Letter: “Who Gave the Order to Kill my Children?”

A Mother’s Letter: “Who Gave the Order to Kill my Children?”

Natalia, the mother of the murdered Christina, wrote a letter to the mother of Poroshenko’s children, asking: “Who gave the order to kill my children?”

I met Natalia, whose daughter and granddaughter were killed in the Grad shelling of Gorlovka by the Ukrainian troops, at the railway station in Kiev. In the eyes of the beautiful and once happy woman today there is deep pain, sadness and emptiness.

The Dangers of Sitting Too Long

By Tom Vick | Mother Earth News

Sedentary behaviors are classified as those that involve sitting for extended periods of time with little movement and low energy output. In day-to-day life, many people spend a lot of time sitting. Many office jobs require sitting all day at a desk, and some people spend hours a day in the car while commuting. After a long day, it is not uncommon to sit down to read, watch TV, or chat with friends. Even the hours eating around a dining room table are spent sitting. In fact, one survey estimates that children and adults in the United States spend 55 percent of their waking hours in sedentary activities.

While it may not be surprising that sitting down is not the healthiest activity you can do, it may be shocking to hear that the dangers of sitting too long could actually shorten your life expectancy.

Even people who exercise regularly can be affected by sedentary behavior. It is important to realize that being physically active does not necessarily mean that you cannot be at risk for excessive sedentary behavior. In fact, you can be both a physically active person and a sedentary person at the same time. For example, perhaps you spend eight hours a day sitting at a desk for work. Although you may go on a run when you get home after work, the eight hours you spend sitting each day are not cancelled out by the fact that you exercise daily.

He Supports All The Troops

He Supports All The Troops

He supports all the troops,
He's glad to see them go,
He fills them with patriotic fervor,
And sets their hearts aglow.

He conjures up a marching band,
He makes them all feel proud,
He tells them to take a stand,
And say the pledge aloud.

He tells them of the enemies,
Those filthy, evil foes,
Those foreign devils must be stopped,
And so his story goes.

Then they go in their prime,
To kill and fight and die,
Cut down before their time,
While loved ones wonder why.

His tales of glory,
Are just a story,
From forth his fetid breath,
They lead to sorrow,
And no tomorrow,
Just endless, dreaded death.

It Begins: CFR Proposes "Central Banks Should Hand Consumers Cash Directly"

"Rather than trying to spur private-sector spending through asset purchases or interest-rate changes, central banks, such as the Fed, should hand consumers cash directly.... Central banks, including the U.S. Federal Reserve, have taken aggressive action, consistently lowering interest rates such that today they hover near zero. They have also pumped trillions of dollars’ worth of new money into the financial system.

Douglas McAuthur McCain killed over the weekend fighting for ISIS

In our Orwellian world...reading an article where someone named Douglas McAuthur McCain is killed while fighting FOR ISIS is just too bizarre not to post. I'm convinced that ISIS...just like AL-CIA-DA...is a CREATED by USA fighting group to sell weapons, keep funding the war machine, keep the middle east destablized, and to backdoor some air strikes on Assad. Like the Federal Reserve, which is neither federal nor has any reserves, the Islamic State is neither Islamic nor a state.

Philadelphia Earns Millions By Seizing Cash And Homes From People Never Charged With A Crime

by Nick Sibilla | Forbes

Chris Sourovelis has never had any trouble with the law or been accused of any crime. But that hasn’t stopped the City of Philadelphia from trying to take his home.

The Sourouvelis family, along with thousands of others in Philadelphia, is living a Kafkaesque nightmare: Their property is considered guilty; they must prove their innocence and the very prosecutors they’re fighting can profit from their misery. Now the Institute for Justice has filed a major class-action lawsuit to end these abuses of power.

CNN caught red handed covering up CDC whistleblower stories

(NaturalNews) While CNN salivates over the news potential of an African-American teen being shot by a police officer, the network deliberately censors any news of the systematic medical abuse of African-American children by the CDC and the vaccine industry. That's the startling revelation which has now surfaced from recent events.

Following the explosive story of a key CDC scientist and whistleblower going public with his admission that the CDC committed scientific fraud to bury the truth about MMR vaccines causing autism, CNN has twice censored citizen journalists who posted well-cited stories on CNN's iReport website.
