    "This 4th of February will be the mightiest day in the history of our lives, the holiest, & the most generous toward us both -- for it makes of two fractional lives a whole; it gives to two purposeless lives a work, & doubles the strength of each whereby to perform it; it gives to two questioning natures a reason for living, & something to live for; it will give a new gladness to the sunshine, a new fragrance to the flowers, a new beauty to the earth, a new mystery to life; & Livy it will give a new revelation to love, a new depth to sorrow, a new impulse to worship. In that day the scales will fall from our eyes & we shall look upon a new world. Speed it!" - Samuel Clemens letter to Olivia Langdon (during courtship), 8 September 1869

  • Character. That alone should suffice. Whether lofty or lowly...


    Portrait by Frank Larson, Smithsonian Institution.

    "One must keep one's character. Earn a character first if you can, and if you can't, then assume one. From the code of morals I have been following and revising... and revising for 72 years, I remember one detail. All my life, I have been honest - comparatively honest. I could never use money I had not made honestly - I could only lend it." - Mark Twain, Speech 12/22/1907
    ======

    J. P. Morgan was asked in days gone by: "Is not commercial credit based primarily upon money or property?"

    "No sir," replied Morgan. "The first thing is character."

    "Before money or property?"

    "Before money or anything else. Money cannot buy it...Because a man I do not trust could not get money from me on all the bonds in Christendom."

    "A fool & his money is soon parted." - Wisdom of the ages

    Q: Are our green dollar bills, which carry the label "Federal Reserve notes" government money?

    A: Federal Reserve notes are actually promissory notes, promises to pay, rather than what we traditionally consider money. They are interest bearing notes issued against interest bearing government bonds, paper issued with nothing but paper backing, which is known as fiat money, because it has only the fiat of the issuer to guarantee these notes.

    The Federal Reserve Act authorizes the issuance of these notes,
    "for the purposes of making advances to Federal reserve banks... The said notes shall be obligations of the United States. They shall be redeemed in gold on demand at the Treasury Department of the United States in the District of Columbia."

    Tourists visiting the Bureau of Printing and Engraving on the Mall in Washington, D.C. view the printing of Federal Reserve notes at this governmental agency on contract from the Federal Reserve System for the nominal sum of . 00260 each in units of 1,000, at the same price regardless of the denomination. These notes, printed for a private bank, then become liabilities and obligations of the United States government and are added to our present $8 trillion debt [ circa 2005 year end. http://www.treasurydirect.gov/govt/reports/pd/histdebt/histd... ]

    The government had no debt when the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913. [Now it is heading toward $18 trillion.]

    Q: Who owns the stock of the Federal Reserve Banks?

    A:Dynastic families of ... internationalists who are loyal to no race, religion, or nation. They are families (clans) such as: Rothschilds; Warburgs; Schiffs; Rockefellers; Harrimans; Morgans; et al.

    Q: Can I buy this stock in the Federal Reserve corporation?

    A: No. The Federal Reserve Act stipulates that the stock of the Federal Reserve Banks cannot be bought or sold on any stock exchange. It is passed on by inheritance as the fortune of the elitest class. Almost half of the owners of Federal Reserve Bank stock are not Americans.

  • Clinton, et al: Largest Blood Donors

    # unaccounted for. , Kosovo War victims, Serbia and Albania, . The troubled history of the region, and the deep-rooted antagonisms between the different ethnic groups laying claim to it.

    Kosovo is the disputed borderland between Serbia and Albania. About 90 per cent of its two million inhabitants are Kosovo Albanians (Kosovars). Albanians are supposedly descended from the ancient Dardanians (Illyrians) who allegedly inhabited the western Balkans long before Slavs arrived in the sixth to eighth centuries AD.

    The Serbs, however, refer to Kosovo as the 'cradle of the Serb nation'. It was after the medieval Serbian Orthodox Church had established a new see at Pec in Kosovo in 1297 that the medieval kingdom of Serbia - founded a century earlier - reached its apogee. Serbian nationalists hold that Kosovo's numerous Orthodox monasteries, and the blood and the relics of those who died defending them, have 'eternally sanctified' Serbian claims to Kosovo. They dispute Albanian claims to direct descent from the ancient Dardanians, arguing that the modern Albanian nation emerged in Albania and Kosovo between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries from a fresh admixture of various 'ethnic strains', including Illyrians, Thracians, Dacians and Vlachs. They deny that an expressly Albanian people were in a majority in Kosovo prior to the Ottoman conquest of the fourteenth century.

    Each time you do a Google search, who is it that you are asking?
    Perhaps you imagine you are drawing down information stored and catalogued by Google on some giant database. Not really. Each time you Google, you are asking everybody else. When you Google, you are skimming the views of... maybe tens of thousands – of people like you. Think of it as a market place, with the relative weight and prominence of what crops up largely determined organically, by the online community.

    To be sure, as in any market, some will try to rig it. Search engine optimisation firms manipulate the search algorithms for their advantage. But the non sponsored links that appear when you do a Google search more or less reflects what fellow web users think. It's a product of organic design, not central cataloguing.

    This did not stop the European court yesterday ruling that Google must be held responsible for what appears about each of us. We have, say the Euro judges, a "right to be forgotten"....

  • Hyper-inflation in Art, 2014. Printing money on a massive scale.

    The economic crash of 2007 and 2008 saw the bailout of a reckless casino-style banking industry in nearly every advanced economy in the world. Desperate to prop up a rapidly crumbling financial system, central banks flushed fresh money back into the system through a measure called quantitative easing, or QE, which is simply put the printing of money on a massive scale. In the United Kingdom this measure disproportionately benefited the financial industry while the general public is fed propaganda on the need for austerity. While on one hand government budgets are tightened and average wages continue to fall, on the other hand, the financial industry awards multi-million Pound bonuses in banks that are, in fact, failing miserably. The inevitable conclusion is that quantitative easing has become an award for failure and that it directly contributes to a rapidly increasing income gap.

    As the supply of currency is increased, the actual value of currency decreases. This government-backed devaluation of currency is a global phenomenon and is therefore not reflected in the exchange rate between currencies. However, this trend can be observed, precisely, in the rising prices in the art market as art is considered a safe store of value in times of crisis. The American economist Jim Rickards points out that historically European dynasties survived over the centuries by dividing wealth into three tangible and physical assets: gold, property and art.

    The mega boom occurring in the global art market at the moment thus has two interrelated significations. In the first instance, it clearly points to a hyperinflation with regards to the increase in value of the art work. The upcoming Christie’s auction in New York will confirm a trend that has dramatically accelerated through the access of cheap currency flushing the global economic system since 2007. In the second instance, the art market boom signifies a global economy that is not as much recovering as it is actually falling apart. The purchase of artworks in the hundreds of millions signifies a panic by the oligarchy fearing a currency system as well as a banking system that is in the process of collapsing. The value of currency is not only depreciating, bank runs in Cyprus for instance also show that it cannot be stored safely either. In this moment of crisis, where a corrupt financial system is unmasked, the acquisition of art is a desperate attempt to hold on to a hegemonic system that is unraveling.

  • Impeach? & President Biden? Boehner? Next Kerry?

    "It's 1, 2, 3.. What are we fighting for? Don't ask me I don't give a damn. Next stop is..." - Country Joe McDonald & the Fish, Woodstock, 1969.
    The original Constitution provides that if neither the President nor Vice President can serve, the Congress shall provide law stating who is next in line. Currently that law exists as 3 USC 19, a section of the U.S. Code. This law was established as part of the Presidential Succession Act of 1947. There, the following line of succession is provided:

    1. Vice President
    2. Speaker of the House of Representatives
    3. President Pro Tempore of the Senate
    4. Secretary of State
    5. Secretary of the Treasury
    6. Secretary of Defense
    7. Attorney General
    8. Secretary of the Interior
    9. Secretary of Agriculture
    10. Secretary of Commerce
    11. Secretary of Labor
    12. Secretary of Health and Human Services
    13. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development
    14. Secretary of Transportation
    15. Secretary of Energy
    16. Secretary of Education
    17. Secretary of Veterans Affairs
    18. Secretary of Homeland Security

    The only exception to the line provided in the law states that to ascend to the Presidency, the next person in line must be constitutionally eligible. Any person holding an office in the line of succession who, for example, is not a naturally-born citizen cannot become President. In this case, that person would be skipped and the next eligible person in the line would become President.

President Nixon stated that the reasons behind the invasion were to disturb the Northern Vietnamese supply lines transported from Cambodia. Other reasons why they invaded were to bomb and destroy the Viet Cong base camps that were interfering with operations in Southern Vietnam. What very few American citizens knew about the U.S. involvement with Cambodia was months before President Nixon announced the Invasion he had been ordering bombing of the country...

  • Pony Express lost but one mail delivery.

    The Pony Express carried mail horseback in saddlebags across a 2,000-mile trail. The service opened officially on April 3, 1860, when riders left simultaneously from St. Joseph, Missouri, and Sacramento, California. The first westbound trip was made in 9 days and 23 hours and the eastbound journey in 11 days and 12 hours. The pony riders covered 250 miles in a 24-hour day.

    Mail service has been going down steadily ever since.

    Eventually, the Pony Express had more than 100 stations, 80 riders, and between 400 and 500 horses. The express route was extremely hazardous, but only one mail delivery was ever lost. The service lasted only 19 months until October 24, 1861, when the completion of the Pacific Telegraph line ended the need for its existence. Although California relied upon news from the Pony Express during the early days of the Civil War, the horse line was never a financial success, leading its founders to bankruptcy. However, the romantic drama surrounding the Pony Express has made it a part of the legend of the American West.

    Let our country return to its more reliable mail service... Pony Express.
