Last Of The More Obvious Indicators

Sort of like watching the ocean recede Waaaay out... just before the tsunami hits.

The super-rich are looking to protect their wealth through buying record numbers of "Italian job" style gold bars, according to bullion experts.
The number of 12.5kg gold bars being bought by wealthy customers has increased 243pc so far this year, when compared to the same period last year, said Rob Halliday-Stein founder of BullionByPost.
"These gold bars are usually stored in the vaults of central banks and are the same ones you see in the film 'The Italian Job'," added David Cousins, bullion executive from London based ATS Bullion.
The bars which are made from pure gold and are worth more than £300,000 each at today's prices of $1,223 (£760) an ounce. (From today's' Telegraph)

Yep... the super-rich are converting to gold. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why. Paper money everywhere is about to collapse.

 If all your financial reserves are in paper, good luck.

At least you won't have to buy toilet paper for years to come.

The Birthing Pains Of Poverty


With our present immigration polices, our country can be like
 this in short order.

The poor, uneducated, untrained and disease-ridden people streaming across our borders by the millions are coming from places like the above. They are coming because they want to share in the prosperity we have created for ourselves.

Unfortunately, they do not want to become like us. The vast majority of them want to keep their own languages, their own cultures, their own form of laws and government, their own heritage.  They just want what we have, things they cannot create for themselves in their own countries, so they're coming here to take it from us.

What they want to keep is what put them into poverty in the first place. Besides bringing themselves, they are bringing their culture of poverty and ignorance with them. And they are coming in such massive numbers they are impacting our prosperity in a hugely negative way.

There has always been just so much to go around, even in the once hard-working America. We have always had our own poor and downtrodden to contend with... long before the first illegal slipped across our border.

The conditions for prosperity are fragile. Sure, there might be some abstract sense in which the world would be a better place if everybody could just come to America and cash in on our hard labor and effort.

" But you start bringing in waves of actual people, people who are poor for actual reasons, and they bring those reasons with them, then the result is they will be  better off, certainly, but we won’t be."*

The United states federal government estimates we now have over 50 million "refugees" imported from failed states and failing nations. These millions have displaced millions of Americans in their homes and jobs, because the truth is that we never did have 50 million jobs begging to be filled.  The real and ugly truth is that for every immigrant who found a job, an American lost one.

Every  "refugee" we have allowed entry receives all manner of government support... Free schooling, free medical, rental assistance, food stamps - the list is long - and all paid nowadays by our massive national debt.

And  every American who has lost their job to an immigrant - legal or illegal -  becomes yet another welfare recipient living off the working taxpayer. This vicious cycle will soon collapse the system.  

Then watch as the barrios, the ghettos and the slums grow exponentially in America.

We are facing a calamitous and massive invasion by the uneducated, untrained and diseased masses from states and nations that do not want them. If this is not stopped and reversed, America will collapse. 

If you know someone who actually believed the ludicrous statement that there were jobs Americans just would not do, remind them it was made by a spoiled rich boy elite who never had to truly work for anything in his life, Bush the Lessor.  No doubt dear little George would rather starve than actually have to pump out  septic tanks for a living.

Another Obligatory Post

This time on the 2.8 million dollars "our" government spent trying to find out why lesbians are fat. It's in the news everywhere.

They are fat because they eat too much. The same exact reason anybody else is fat.

See? I could have saved the taxpayers 3 million dollars.

Granny Rides Again

I enjoy visiting Yellowdog Grannys blog. There is always a large batch of posters designed to inflame the average liberal who is always too busy to check facts.

One of her latest:

Anyone, after reading this bit of  far left propaganda, might want to blame Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) for all those Kentucky woes.

Hmm. Let's look at that poverty rate. It's not "still 19%", it has gone up to 19.4%. Why? Well, 67% of their coal mining jobs are gone. That would certainly mean less jobs, more poverty. Where did those jobs go?

Now for a few of those pesky liberal-ignored facts:

The Sierra Club, on their web site, is doing some serious bragging about having helped to shut down 178 - one hundred and seventy eight - coal fired plants in the last few years, with the intention of seeing 345 - three hundred and forty five - more shut down ASAP.

And who is shutting them down? Our very own EPA under the direct orders of Barak Obama, who has directed the EPA to do so by using Executive Orders and bypassing Congress.

That's why Kentucky has lost 67% of their coal mining jobs, Fewer coal fired plants, fewer coal mining jobs required. More unemployed, more poverty. Funny how that works.

If Obama and his EPA stooges have their way, Kentucky will lose 100% of their coal mining jibs.

But that's not my point here.  Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell had nothing at all  to do with the loss of 67% of their coal mining jobs. That has been caused by Barak Obama and his deep green lackeys at the EPA.

Something to consider:

With 178 of our nations coal fired power plants shuttered, our reserves of electrical energy is at an all time low. If Obama and his EPA succeed in closing the remaining  345, this nation will not have enough electrical energy to make it through an average winter.  There will be many places with no heat and no lights, not for just a few hours, but for weeks at a time.

Remember:  This clueless president and his fanatical green followers at the EPA are replacing the plants they are closing with nothing but hot air about greener meadows and bluer skies.

Some boring facts:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

 The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), the electric reliability organization certified by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to establish and enforce reliability standards for three major electrical interconnections serving the United States, issues a reliability assessment each year.

 NERC estimated in November 2012 that the United States would have 966 gigawatts (GW) of electric supply capacity available for the summer of 2013. NERC estimated that about 786 GW would be needed to meet projected peak electricity demand and determined that another 117 GW should be available in case of supply outages or extreme weather (known as target reserve supply).

The United States has 63 GW of capacity above and beyond the NERC target reserve supply. The level of above-target capacity varies by region: some areas have significant excess capacity and others are more constrained.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The above  estimates were as of 2012, when many of the now-closed coal fired plants were still in operation and on line.

Our reserves are now much lower, and if Obama and the EPA have their way, we will soon have no reserves at all.

Oh... You say you're not worried? That your furnace runs on natural gas? How about that big blower motor that distributes all that heated air out throughout your house?

It needs electricity. Lots of it.
