Da Religion Of Money. "Wally-Nomics 102".

William Grieder, former assistant managing editor of the Washington Post, wrote a book in 1987 entitled, "Secrets of the Temple: How the Federal Reserve Runs the Country" that details how the Controllers have conditioned us to accept this absurd situation.
"To modern minds," he writes, "it seemed bizarre to think of the Federal Reserve as a religious institution. Yet the conspiracy theorists, in their own demented way, were on to something real and significant.
The Fed did also function in the realm of religion. Its mysterious powers of money creation, inherited from priestly forebears, shielded a complex bundle of social and psychological meanings. With its own form of secret incantation, the Federal Reserve presided over awesome social ritual, transactions so powerful and frightening they seemed to lie beyond common understanding.
" Mr. Grieder continues, "Above all, money was a function of faith. It required implicit and universal social consent that was indeed mysterious. To create money and use it, each one must believe, and everyone must believe. Only then did worthless pieces of paper take on value.
" Do you get it? MONEY is an ILLUSION! Why? Because the gold standard upon which our money is supposed to be based has been eliminated. There's no more gold in Fort Knox. It's all GONE!
Now, money really IS only paper!!!
In the past, money was supposed to represent something of tangible value. Now it's simply paper! Taken one step further, many of us don't even use paper money any more! Why? Well, here's a scenario.
Many places of employment directly deposit their employee's paychecks into the bank. Once the money is there, when bill time comes around, the person in question can write out a stack of checks to pay them. Plus, when they need gasoline they use a credit card; and groceries a debit card. If this person goes out for dinner on Friday night, they can charge the tab on their diner's card. But what about the tip? They simply scribble in the amount at the bottom of the check. So far, the person hasn't spent a single dollar bill. Plus, if you bring electronic banking into the picture, we've virtually eliminated the use for money. And, God forbid, what happens when encoded microchips are implanted into the backs of our hand? In essence, money has become nothing more than an illusion - an electronic figure or amount on a computer screen. That's it! As time goes on, we have an increasing tendency toward being sucked into this Wizard of Oz vortex of unreality. Think about it.
Americans as a whole are carrying more personal debt than in any other time in history.
Plus, our government keeps going further and further into the hole, with no hope of ever crawling out. But we have less and less actual MONEY!
We're being enslaved by the debt of electronic blips on a computer screen! And 70% of the banks that control this debt via the Federal Reserve exist in foreign countries!
What in God's name is going on?
As author William Bramley says, "The result of this whole system is MASSIVE debt at every level of society." We're getting screwed in a sickening way, folks, and the people doing it are demented magician-priests that use the ILLUSION of money as their control device. And I hate to say it, but if we allow things to keep going as they are, the situation will only get worse.

This economic "problem" is not over yet. I had a real-estate friend tell me the housing market has not yet seen the worst of it. He predicts we still have 6 mths. of downfall, then some people will start buying because the prices will be so low.

The funny thing about economics is that it is often hard to project very far ahead. There are so many variables & money is such a personal thing & like you point out involving faith, illusion, etc...This makes it hard to predict & hard to ponder.

Bail-Out, Smail-Mout...
We're in deep do-do!
We're in a war to keep labour here.
And Americans and Canadians still don't get it!!!

It's not Real Estate or funds from make-believe paper or electronic monies!!!

It's jobs guys, plain and simple jobs.

Without a stable, strong work force we will collapse.

What is hap'n now is just the tip'o da ice berg the da "Fed" has in store for us.

Union busting!!! In a full scale media campaign.

I've heard it every where i go... "the unions are to blame"... "the workers were greedy"...etc..

The bailout is merely a loan that will be paid back , with interest to the lender, not the U.S. people , but the the "FED"!

These companies will use this loan as a step out the door and to set-up plants in slave nations. China comes to mind as one of them.

Did you guys know that the largest car plant in the world is owned by General Motors? Do you know where that plant is? China! They also own the second largest plant in the world, where? Russia!

I wonder where all that loan will go?

I absolutely 100% agree. I was just discussing this last weekend with some people. Its flippin scary. And like you said... I think *right now* is going to be "easy" compared to what we'll see in years to come.

Not good.
