Wouldn’t it be a fantastic place to live if our children were taught the basics of economics?

    Maybe reality over fantasy before economics.

    I wonder how they’re going to pay for this? But been reading @ some other blogs it mentions they know the whole worldislooking at them now and has a web page up for donations! 😆 I guess they are either looking for suckers to donate or realise they will have to pay for the rescue and need others to pay it for their stupidity. Look up to Bob Koss’s post after. 😉

    I like to think that I am a fairly bright guy — but I was approaching forty years old before I finally realized that I had learned almost nothing about economics and our monetary system. I knew plenty of history, plenty of science, plenty of literature, but why had I never been taught the history of money? Why was I never told what was the intrinsic difference between a franc, a yuan, a dollar, an ounce of gold or silver? In fact, what was a “dollar”? Was it the same as a “Federal Reserve Note”? Where did money come from? Where did it go? When the government spent or borrowed money, what were the implications for We The People? Most importantly of all, why were all those questions so pointedly unmentioned during my stint in school? Who benefited by keeping the public ignorant of economics and monetary creation?

      The same people who didn’t teach ;you.

      I learned it from my grandparents, who survived the Depression. Then I found Dr. Thomas Sowell. I have been reading/studying Economics ever since. I’ve read Marx, I’ve read Keynes, I’ve read Friedman, and I’ve read Hayek, von Mises, von Bawerk, and Menger.

      That reminds me, I must have gone to a special school district, for economics was taught in school (basic and home). Still that was some 40 years ago.

    Maoist Emo payama boy from the Guardian’s Antarctic Creep Crew posts video of him talking into the camera from the stuck ship. Peanut milkshakes? Is that a thing?

    It is now proven; the Femen “protests” are commercial undertakings.
    The paparazzo Hans Paul, who likely ordered the naked Femen hoe in the Cologne cathedral:
    http://www.sueddeutsche.de/medien/femen-aktion-im-koelner-dom-halbnackte-wahrheit-1.1852851
    “Leider kam unserem Paparazzo in Köln der Express in die Quere und nahm uns die Exklusivität. Dadurch entstand ein Verlust von mindestens 100.000 Euro, was mir eine schlaflose Nacht raubte”. Ganz so schrecklich war es dann unterm Strich doch nicht: “Wir konnten noch gut international verkaufen, wie an die englische Sun und auch in die USA und Südamerika”.

    “Unfortunately the Cologne Express got wind of it and robbed us off the exclusivity; which caused us a loss of at least 100,000 EUR (138,000 USD), which caused me a sleepless night.” But it turned out not to be all in vain, he continued: “We still had good international sales, for instance to the British Sun and also to USA and South America.”

    (The Cologne Express was able to identify the hoe sitting in the front row before she jumped up and their photograph immediately followed her making more photos as things went on. Hans Paul’s words seem to indicate that he was part of the organisation, maybe the paymaster and or instigator, and the Cologne Express seems to have piggybacked on it)

    ObamaCare includes so many taxes that it’s hard to keep track, but one of the worst takes effect on Jan. 1. This beaut is a levy on health insurance premiums that targets the small business and individual markets.

    At $8 billion in 2014 and $101 billion over the next decade, the insurance tax is larger than ObamaCare’s taxes on medical devices and prescription drugs combined. The Internal Revenue Service classifies the tax as a “fee” but it functions like an excise tax on premiums.
