The Daily Climb-Monday, Jan. 6th, 2012

Monday, Jan. 6th, 2012 – Now that the Super Bowl is over for another year, we can all get back to the real world. Our decisions are in the present. Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow will get here, soon enough. I know that some people don’t realize that some places in the world had more immediate issues than a football game. I know that there are homeless people, people who are facing eviction or foreclosure and people who’s days on earth are numbered by terminal illness. In those circumstances, people just want there to be a tomorrow without trouble. We’ll see what can be done about making the trouble go away.

The Daily Climb-Monday, Jan. 30th, 2012

Monday, Jan. 30th, 2012 – Choices. The most complex problems are either avoided or created with simple choices. Is the currency, money? Is “the way it is”, the law? Do we live in the country, America, or do we occupy it as alien shareholders in the United States? They seem to be simple questions. The same yes or no answer to the first two questions decides the answer to the third question. If the currency is money and and “the way it is” is the law, then there are no choices left. That answer is a voluntary submission to being property of the United States. The result is to be managed to the maximum benefit of the Federal corporation, the United States. It means taking on the yoke of perpetual debt slavery.  It means that a commercial action has been taken. It means support for actions that the individual may object to, on moral issues of conscience. In the end, it means suffering the consequences of actions by people that act by presumed Power of Attorney. The individual is legally incompetent and a proxy renders decisions for the individual. This is the road that people have taken. It leads to a bad end.

The Daily Climb- Friday, Jan. 27th, 2012

Friday, Jan. 27th, 2012 – So far, 2012 is the Year of the Mismatch. Perception does not match up with reality. The economy doesn’t match up with money. Politics doesn’t match up with social stability. Of course, we never expect anything honorable from politics, anyway. It is what it is. My definition of politics is that it is the constant search for another human being to worship. Failure and disappointment are built into the process. Oh, and before I forget the big picture, production doesn’t match up with markets. That will be the common thread through every economic story of 2012.

The Daily Climb-Wednesday, Jan. 25th, 2012

Wednesday, Jan. 25th, 2012 – In all of the speculation about the global economy, and the European debt crisis, there is a question that I haven’t seen asked.

“What would happen if all of the currencies of the world collapsed, on the same day?”

With all of the apocalyptic speculation about 2012, I see the answer being between the extremes. Of course that would mean a period of civil disruption. Some places would be worse than others. But what would people do to transact business? I see it coming out with commodities indexed to each other, in parity pricing. Currency would be replaced by private contracts specified in quantities of commodities.

An ounce of gold = so many ounces of silver, so many tons of coal, a set quantity in bushels of produce, a specified amount of crude oil, on through equivalence in manufactured goods. A stabilized economy would of course be subject to the unforeseen. That’s what keeps life interesting.

The Daily Climb-Monday, Jan. 23rd, 2012

Monday, Jan. 23rd, 2012 – With Europe’s other shoe still hanging in the air,  Nothing definitive is certain, until Greece either gets a reprieve or or defaults. The stalemate between the rock and the hard place, continues. As has been discussed in many places, by many people in trhe financial world, the possibility of the currency printing presses going into overdrive is still there. That’s the carrot on a stick that keeps the markets coming back for more. When the paper comes out like confetti, government economic statistics won’t mean a thing. The “inflation under control” nonsense will be exposed for the lie that it is. The important necessities in the inflation figures would have to be replaced with manure to make the official figures. The other important statistic to people who live in the real world, employment figures, will have to count deceased people as employed, before the numbers will look good. In the meantime, the world moves on, and may do so without clearing it with those who think they are in control.

Black’s Law Dictionary Online

It is critically important to note the efforts to make exercise of freedom of speech, a commercial action. No one hired us to make any statement. We did not receive payment for our expression, and at no time, is our opinion offered in open commerce, for the purpose of soliciting corporate profits. Now do you understand why I read Black’s Law Dictionary?

This resource is an absolute necessity for anyone who wants to know what they are talking about
