Short Walk back to Old Africa

September 12, 2012

Many of you will recognize the pun on Nelson Mandela’s book Long Walk to Freedom.

 It looks like our day is unavoidable now; it has been just a short walk in time.  One link is enough; if you read all the related links that you will find as you surf around you will be reading until Election 2012 day and I don’t want to do that to you.

 So just read my closing comment in this one:

 We have always been the last bastion at the southernmost point of the continent.  Thanks to England, America and the World the end of the road is nigh.  For you who don’t know where and what it is [that specifically include the Kennedy, Carter, Clinton and Obama Administrations] we are now just round the corner from Zimbabwe as these ignoramuses wanted it to be.

Non-Racist Strikes and violence

Malema’s Strikers

 For the very first time the evil Colonists can smile; though we don’t smile with glee we could if we want to because the killing is between black and black.  The “haves” are now virtually 99% black and so are the have not’s, except that the gap is wider and the great divide is growing.

 Don’t cry for me America; cry for thee.  You have wished it upon us and thee are heading in the same direction.  You may not be immune to the same fate.

 I hate to do this to you and ask that you please note that it excludes “America of the 49 States” but our hope in this World lies in China and Russia.

 Your only hope, and one last opportunity not to be repeated lies in getting Romney into the White House in January of next year.  It will be numbered 2013 in the Gregorian Calendar; don’t fail.

How to figure your age

This is from an Email Friend; he deserves the credit and I didn’t want to steal his thunder particularly when it meant so much to me.

The Foundation of Money

June 27, 2012

What money, you may ask? And that will be a good question; yes Good Sir, a good question indeed and I will allow discussion on that. Let us have a look at this thing called Money.

There used to be a time when Governments vowed to exchange a one buck note of money for its value in solid gold but that time … well, it’s a long time ago. There have been many good stories about money including one of my favorites about the fellow in Germany long time ago, stacked all his money in a suitcase and went to the railroad station to spend it because it had become almost worthless, all his savings over a lifetime, but when he turned his back on the suitcase for few minutes he discovered to his amazement that his money was scattered all around the platform but the thief had taken the empty suitcase.

Way back then when money was still real one’s wealth was usually measured in terms of hard assets, land or other real estate; stock in trade in the business was visible in concrete and steel and, if you, for instance, owned a bicycle factory your inventory would include steel, leather, bells and whistles of the actual hardware through the various stages of manufacturing.

The natural thing any wise bicycle manufacturer would do in those days would be to keep an eye on the vacant lot next door with a view to buying it to enlarge his facilities when the time was right and when it came he would call the bank; a manager would come over and look at the lot and advance him the money.

Those days ended I would guess around 1990, about the time we got a thing called The Webby or as they would have us all call it The Mighty Internet, the Space Highway some call it and we all rise up in rage when any effort is mentioned to curtail or lessen our Freedom in Space.

You guys will argue with me now but I wish you to think about it. Who owns the Internet? The robbers, thieves and the drug cartels, ole friend, they own and operate it.

But what does that have to do with the Foundation of Money, you will ask?

Good Sir[s], you really think that the woes of the Financial World are over? Well, you had better think and have another guess, Good Sir[s], and think well, mind that. It ain’t over Sir; in fact, it has only just started.

The Webby and its owners have converted your money to entries on a computer chip.

Oh yeah, better watch your suitcase; spend the money that you have now; spend it and borrow as much as you can and spend that too. Debt is about the wisest investment anyone can have these days because The Foundation of Money exists no more.

The Webby is about to take over. Freedom, you ask? It’s a myth, good Sir[s]. Read all about it in the Euro Barclays Bank Scandals and what will happen to Greece/Spain to mention a few as things unfold over the next few weeks.
