Cooking the Golden Goose

A profit is nothing more than trickery and deception, for a thing is only worth the energy used to create it, nothing more, nothing less.

 

All that man has created, or could’ve created, or could create, could’ve or could be done without Gold.

 

What other creatures will take our money in exchange for something we want?

 

A gold rock, a piece of paper, a coin, has no energy to expend or provide and therefore has no worth.

 

Even a fool can become rich if he picks the winning number.

 

Bankers are like priests – they pass an empty bowl around and the people fill it with their money.

 

Making money off money is nothing short of a magic trick.

 

Taking a loan or using credit breaks the harmonious law of nature that says no energy can be used without using energy to use it.

 

A river flows from its source to the ocean while money flows onto itself.

 

A billionaire doesn’t have enough energy to count his billions.

 

The only currency that has value is the mind, the hand, blood and sweat.

 

Men dig tons of earth to find an ounce of gold (Heraclitus — sixth century B.C.)

 

Reprocessing the Middle Class – Act 1

The repercussions from the few siphoning away money from the majority of United States citizens begins to hit home with the young population as they enter college and then graduate.  Fresh out of the domestic womb, we load up our young people with thousands of dollars in debt via college loans.  The offspring of the few that have successfully siphoned away chunks of the community pie have little to worry about since their parents can afford ivy league costs. And connections will be available upon graduation for that six figure job on Wall Street or in the venture capital world, but the story is quite different for the vast majority.  Our young people graduate with over twenty grand in debt and then have to find a job on their own.  Good luck.

Worse yet, college tuition is skyrocketing and interest rates on student loans are rising.   The cost of college is outpacing working parent’s stagnant wages.  State governments can’t afford to subsidize public undergraduate education so the cost burden is shifted to the parents and students.  Federal student loan interest rates are expected to rise from 3.4% to 6.8% — the Federal Government certainly can’t lend our young people money at low rates any longer since they have gone to the well far too often in the last decade.  So there you have it young people and future of America.  Welcome to the real world.  I hope you enjoyed your youth.  If you want to live the middle class dream, get used to the idea of loading up on debt to get a thin slice of stale pie, with interest due upon consumption.
