BANZAI7 FOOD AND BEVERAGE WARNING!
While there is no exact constant in economics, the stability of gold’s purchasing power is unprecedented...
The ECB president brazenly “refused to answer questions” regarding Deutsche Bank during a closed-door meeting in the German parliament.
The almighty dollar is looking less mighty these days. By almost every measure, the purchasing power of the US dollar is in precipitous decline.
Thank you, BernanQE, I can now buy less than 1/4th a loaf of bread as my parents used to buy.
Actually, even less. Your parents bought bread. You are buying bread flavored loaf -- now with real bread flavoring.
Would that be Soylent White?
I like the sourdough Soylent myself.
Actually all I really care about (and can influence) is my own (and family's) financial circumstances.
The Yen (and perhaps soon Korea's Won) are in freefall, which for now gives us a good deal on bearings from those countries.
In a way it is sad that I now feel that way. Thanks .gov and Fed. Thanks a lot.
Pretty much puts everyone else in the "bearing" straights?
Now that's just cold...
One more for FEMA Camp. Next!
Crash Course Chapter 10: Inflation
I see that "Mad Arrow" is on board tonight. Purse your lips, pucker up and kiss my ass Mad Arrow.
Dude with the Yen breaching 100 I think it's the Japanese consumer who deserves the most sympathy right now.
How much does a loaf cost made of saw dust, coming to a store near you soon!!
"wheat is the anti-christ"
The worst part is that eventhouvh economists recognize that what they do is not a science and that most of the time they are wrong. Their true honest intellectuals are honestly convinced that they are right and that the problem is not enough fiscal deficit spending. Oh and they call me a brilliant mind with "novel ideas" when I challenge them in their own turf. But they d9nt have time to give them a try ansd see the falacy in their models and understanding. It seems that the only way to challenge them would be to do a PhD in finance and prove them wrong. I dont know that there iss enough time. At the same time I dont know that there isnt...
Until next time,
"Their true honest intellectuals are honestly convinced that they are right and that the problem is not enough fiscal deficit spending."
I disagree. They are intentionally trying to take the system down do as to usher a new system in. Prepare accordingly.
- also an engineer, if that makes a difference.
Engineer #3 (me) agrees with engineer #2's disagreement about engineer #1's post. We are seeing an orchestrated collapse. A poorly ocrchestrated one, but orchestrated nonetheless. You're either in their club or you aint. If you in, you better have some damn good doublespeak and be able to doublethink like a champ.
And Bryers's Frozen Dairy Dessert? That would be Soylent Cream,
LTER, thanks that was great.
Something else very satisfying to make yourself. It's easy to do especially with a bread machine and it's not very expensive. The smell of freshly baked bread is fantastic. I have a loaf of honey oatmeal whole wheat just finishing up and the aroma has filled the house.
Thanks, Martha. Got any stock tips?
Sure. Buy low, sell high.
That is so 80's.
The new paradigm is buy high, sell higher.
Thanks to the Fed, the greater fool theory now reigns supreme.
I guess that's why we're on the sidelines, other than PMs. We got out with a profit but we're happy to leave it to those more clever -- or foolish, as you say AB.
I'd rather bet on my my husband's business than risk it in the market where nothing appears sustainable.
On the upside there, bronze is cheaper than it's been in years, a side effect of cheap copper.
BERNANKE SAVED THE WORLD!!! THE WORST IS OVER!!! JUST BTFD!!!
Buy high! That has so many double meanings.
I only buy high. I sell depressed.
I thought these days it was simply BTFD.
The "market" can only go up, ergo it is lower now than it will be soon, ergo in a dip relative to the future, ergo buy now.
Bread is a big part of why there are so many fat people in the US. Maybe yours is slightly more healthy than most but im sure it still has a relatively large amount of fat and some type of sweetener in it.
MADE WITH REAL FRUIT JUICE*
*contains less than 1% juice
"real bread flavoring" good to know there's still some room for further food debasement.
We still have room for "bread flavoring" then "simulated bread flavoring", and "loaf" has unlimited potential for food debasement.
OT, but a nice recap of Benghazi.
"America has a rare second chance to stem the tide of tyrannical oppression which is sweeping this country. Every American needs to become a citizen journalist through the upcoming summer. Each American needs to become responsible for spreading the truth about the criminals who have hijacked our government. I am not seeking a revolution against the United States government, I am seeking to drive the criminals from power who have hijacked our government. These criminals are destroying this country through abuse of power, malfeasance of office, treason against the Constitution of the United States, fraud, theft and ultimately murder. They need to be brought to justice at all costs. Obama and Clinton need to be tried for first degree murder for the planned death of Chris Stevens.
Testimony of government whistle-blowers has established the fact that there was plenty of opportunity for the Obama administration to save the life of Ambassador Stevens and his security detail. However, the Communist News Network (CNN) as well as ABC, NBC and CBS refuse to provide any meaningful coverage of the C-Span televised congressional hearings. However, the truth is out there on Youtube and all through the internet. I don’t care if the MSM refuses to cover the first degree murder of Chris Stevens carried out at the behest of key members of the Obama administration. We, the general public can take this information and disseminate it to a dozen colleagues, friends and family members because the present congress will not act.
Chris Stevens and his security team need not have died in vain. The circumstances surrounding his death give freedom-loving Americans the chance to expose elements of the NWO to the unaware public. Over the next week to 10 days, we are going to see a multitude of evidence which shows the following facts:
How come they wanted Stevens dead? That's the part I must have missed.
Just trying to get all the puzzle pieces sorted by pattern.
"...planned death of Chris Stevens."
The only thing that makes sense is if they were in fact running guns to AQ affiliates in Syria. He was a lose end.
I don't subscribe to this theory of "a hit" as there are plenty of people that would know what he knew as well, up & down the food chain/command structure. I think everyone knows my lack of respect for O'Barry & Hitlary, I'd love to nail em to the wall on something like that...but I don't think so.
More than likely its just what it is as we know so far...bloated, bureaucratic, incompetence. Other nations had already moved out their staff or increased security, throughout Libya, which is what is coming out now...they were asking for more security and were refused...plus they farmed out "guards" to the locals.
Then when TSHTF they froze. The big question is where was "our" Commander in Chief that night, apparently sleeping, while Americans were being slaughtered.
Yep. Hanlon's Razor. "Explains" a lot more than I formerly sheepishly believed. Even in my backyard.
wood kiln baked
sourdough french ...
let them eat
Yeah, and you make five times as much as your dad made a month... Kind of adds upp, does it not?
Then you need a new job.
What … You got bread in your house? It really throws salt on the wounds when the rich people come here to brag and rub it in.
You didn't bake that.
Bread and dark chocolate are up over 100%...gold up over 100% from it's $700/oz level.....silver used to be about $10/oz....even a can of sardines is up over 100%....Anyone who does not see this is blind.
Other things that were already overpriced (like housesand clothes) are plunging but have levelled off a little for awhile at last before they continue their correction downward.
I take in less than 1500 calories per day. Feel great
Food is so over-rated
Yikes, I would die at that level. I am at 3500-4k per day. Real food though.
Amen to real food. the surprising thing about produce; it is generally cheap in comparison to say, a box of cheese it's. Just takes a bit more work to prep it and get it to the tabIe.
1500 calories.....sounds like a normal breakfast to me.
Yeah, all true, but it's goin' to the MOON is the next few months...CRASHVILLE is here
That's why holding a fair amount of genuine FIAT dollars is not a bad idea. Three months expenses if possible. Good diversification that many people never think of.
+1. Cash may not rule everything around me, but it does rule some.
Out of curiosity, can you tell me one person it doesn't rule?
Truth is that fiat works fine as a medium of exchange. Who holds cash over the long haul? So what if the few $$$ in your safe loose 2% a year?
The problems start when we hold fiat (and derivatives) as a store of value. That forces us to earn a return..or try to...to keep up with inflation.
The big lie is that the dollar is as good as gold. It is not.
