At least thats what the press is calling it. I read the bill and seemed benign enough. Leave it to the press to make fun of anyone outside the Hegelian Dialectic:

  • Country Codger

    Good one Rainmaker.

  • lastmanstanding

    This thing has, ” a lot of potential!”

    Elected officials embarrass the shit out of us…It is unbelievable that they ignore the writing on the wall…

    However, it is a step in the right direction…if their serious about it.

  • Silver Shield

    This totally plays into the Ultimate Exit Strategy where some states are going to realize the problem and address it with honest money and honest people.

    Those states that get their act together first are going to attract the best and brightest from all over the world much like the US used to.

    The Silver Shield Report seeks to build a intellectual foundation of a community to plug into that fertile ground when the time is right.

    Until then keep stacking.

    This article made me smile while it’s MSM spin was crazy doomers.

  • I am rather pleased to learn that some people in our country are aware of the
    coming disaster that the fifteen point four trillion dollar federal national debt
    is going to cause. I was just writing the other day stating that we have a country in which we have three hundred and thirteen million people who are in
    psychological denial of that fact.
    I have looked at the problem and concluded that it is not going to be easy to
    avert the coming disaster. However, I do have a plan. It has a number of steps
    to it. The first is that the American people have to wake up. The second is that to avoid collapse, people have to make changes in the way they think. The
    third is recognize that major changes have to be made. The forth is to stop spending money that we do not have. The fifth, the sixth, the seventh, etc.
    And why go on when nobody is even interested in step number one.

  • The only thing I can suggest is to call them as soon as you can. I have had them for years and never had a proelbm, but I’ve never thought about this when I’ve traveled to another country either! +2Was this answer helpful?
