Personal message to corporate America, UP YOURS!

Should we have to work until 70? These CEOS say yes
Bertha Coombs , CNBC

Executives of the Business Roundtable are urging Congress to raise the Social Security and Medicare age eligibility to 70, from the current 67, and to adopt means testing for wealthier retirees, in order to keep the entitlement programs solvent longer-term.

"When you look long-term at the U.S. fiscal health, you have to look at these questions," said Business Roundtable President John Engler during meeting with reporters in Washington Tuesday.

The idea is not likely to be popular. The Simpson-Bowles deficit reduction committee saw opposition when it suggested lifting the retirement age to 69. The Roundtable executives argue that raising the level gradually for those less than 55 years of age now will provide substantial long-term savings to the entitlement programs, while still giving Americans time to adjust to the new requirements.

"It’s the power of compound savings here," said Randall Stephenson, chairman and CEO of AT&T, and vice chair of the group’s health and retirement committee. "If you start to save now, it really adds up."

The Roundtable executives contend older workers will still be able to access subsidized health care through Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare, which begins in 2014. What’s more, they say, the economy will need older workers to remain in the labor force.

Kentucky Sheriff to Feds: ‘You Are Never Going to Pull Guns Out of Jackson County’
by AWR Hawkins 13 Jan 2013, 4:46 AM PDT

As I wrote on Jan. 11, Jackson County Kentucky Sheriff Denny Peyman has made it clear that gun laws which violate the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution will not be enforced in his county.

On Jan. 12, he followed this up with a press conference in which he explained that a Sheriff’s powers are predominant over the powers of federal and state agents. When he says these things he drives gun-grabbers batty because he says them with the conviction that rests on knowledge, and he has no intention of backing down.

During the press conference, he took time to explain his powers as sheriff:

I am responsible for the people inside this county. I am the highest elected official in this county, and this is the only opportunity the people have to speak for themselves and say ‘this is what we want.’

I can ask federal people to leave, they have to leave. I can ask state people to leave, they have to leave. …[And] it doesn’t matter what [new laws] Obama passes, the sheriff has more power than the federal people.

He said that if federal gun-grabbers don’t understand this, then "they need to go back and study it," because Kentucky "is a commonwealth."

Peyman says he has been approached by liberals within the gun-grabbing world since he made his original promise of no gun control in his county, and he told them plainly: "You are never going to pull guns out of Jackson County."

Howdy! Another big Sierra storm comin' on, big-time....and inside the portal will be perfect place to be.

My re-curring dream is actually reality: to be inside this Grand Mine when stuff is happening outside, is where I am. Fortunately I've been there in many times, underground, down to below 3000 when we could....and the dream is real.

It'll be SO GRAND to do it again!

"Everything comes, sooner or later" Anonymous

American's wealth is on a downward slope with no apparent end in sight. Americans need a reliable partner during the coming suspected storm and that partner is gold and silver.

American Households Hit 43-Year Low In Net Worth
The median net worth of American households has dropped to a 43-year low as the lower and middle classes appear poorer and less stable than they have been since 1969.
According to a recent study by New York University economics professor Edward N. Wolff, median net worth is at the decades-low figure of $57,000 (in 2010 dollars). And as the numbers in his study reflect, the situation only appears worse when all the statistics are taken as a whole.

My wife's great granpa, who came
from France in about 1850 came up to Sierra Co. and with his dad mined in two areas, Kanaka Cr.and Fosters Bar and over a 5+ year stretch did well and with the earnings went to San Francisco and into the meat packing business. To this day there are
french folks from S.F. who come to mine the creeks of Sierra Co.
and other areas.

Our challenge is to stay the course of invention, discovery, wisdom, perseverence, knowledge, and keep the re-writers off our back. I'm not really happy about the level of interest these words have sparked into the hearts of remaining true spirit Americans...and elections don't seem to reflect these attributes much anymore due to so many levels of distortion, so I'll break it down this way:

Whether or not they get out of the way, true spirit freedom had better rise to the top soon.

Does it still come as a surprise that we've come so far down this dark raod that I'm actually posting a thought about being FREE?

Time to back the fire, and break down the crap said about us.

Okay. Get to it.

The grades are in from Yahoo and California of all 50 states is the worst run of all. The guys in Sacramento have failed.

50. California

Thinkstock> Debt per capita: $4,008 (18th highest)
> Budget deficit: 20.7% (17th largest)
> Unemployment: 11.7% (2nd highest)
> Median household income: $57,287 (10th highest)
> Pct. below poverty line: 16.6% (18th highest)

California is 24/7 Wall St.’s “Worst Run State” for the second year in a row. Due to high levels of debt, the state’s S&P credit rating is the worst of all states, while its Moody’s credit rating is the second-worst. Much of California’s fiscal woes involve the economic downturn. Home prices plunged by 33.6% between 2006 and 2011, worse than all states except for three. The state’s foreclosure rate and unemployment rate were the third- and second-highest in the country, respectively. But efforts to get finances on track are moving forward. State voters passed a ballot initiative to raise sales taxes as well as income taxes for people who make at least $250,000 a year. While median income is the 10th-highest in the country, the state also has one of the highest tax burdens on income. According to the Tax Foundation, the state also has the third-worst business tax climate in the country.

From this morning's International Forecaster:

8) Gun control is coming via a United Nations Small Arms Treaty to ban all guns. Within 24 hours of his "victory" Obama called to get a copy of this bill to submit to Congress. The real reason for the Second Amendment is protection against the government, not home defense, hunting, or sport shooting. Slaves can't own guns, only free people can. You can't have a police state when the citizens own guns.
All the scumbags waiting for free government handouts, free food, free medical care, and free everything else will starve in the streets as the government runs out of money. They will find their "free" health care means almost no medical care at all. You know, like in Cuba where healthcare is free, only there isn't any.

We're in a new era, that's for certain.

While it shames me to witness Deserve-icrats voting presents for their apparent laziness, let's foregive them for their ignorance, move forward and lead by example, since the strong always survives.

Our focus is the same: Discovery. In fact, it is even made that much more powerful by each caltrop thrown down in front of us, by each new regulation whose intent is lost in practicality, by the ignorance we must overcome, and by the challenge to enlighten the ill-informed...and by success which will never be squashed by those intent on control.

Hey, we just show them!

Human spirit defines Success...not all the crap that inevitably gets in the way.

ONWARD!!!

Banksters Escape Jail Time, Again.

Seems the SEC has lost their deck of "go to jail" cards at public expense.

This is wonderful, the painful financial losses the public suffered at the hands of J.P. Morgan are now being shared with the SEC. Is the SEC now partners in crime with the banksters? It would seem so in the settlement as Morgan doesn't admit wrongdoing, keeps their immoral profits, and therefore no one goes to prison.

What ever happened to the Golden Rule?

No Individual Charges In Probe of J.P. Morgan

By JEAN EAGLESHAM and DAN FITZPATRICK

November 12, 2012

The top U.S. securities regulator doesn’t intend to charge any individuals in its planned enforcement action against J.P. Morgan Chase JPM -0.12% & Co. for the allegedly fraudulent sale of mortgage bonds, according to people close to the investigation.

The largest U.S. bank by assets will pay a significant financial penalty under the proposed deal, which has been approved by Securities and Exchange Commission staff but not by the agency’s five commissioners, said the people close to the probe.

The J.P. Morgan deal is expected to be the first in a series of SEC enforcement actions related to Wall Street’s manufacture and sale of mortgage-backed securities, said the people close to the investigation. But the landmark deal could revive a long-running argument about whether the authorities have let too many individuals go unpunished.

The settlement stems from a wide-ranging SEC probe dating back to 2010. The proposed deal wouldn’t require J.P. Morgan to admit to wrongdoing or face any allegations against any current or former executives, the people added.

J.P. Morgan’s payment is expected to be significantly less than the $550 million paid by Goldman Sachs Group Inc. GS +0.34% in 2010 to settle claims by the SEC that it misled investors in a type of mortgage-bond deal called a collateralized debt obligation. Goldman didn’t admit or deny wrongdoing.

From this mornings International Fotecaster:

The debt is too great to be repaid.

The official national debt is $16 trillion—about $50,000 for every man, woman and child. Technically, that debt might be paid in full, but only after Americans were subjected to at least five years of austerity and Greece-like riots.

However, John Williams (Shadowstats.com) calculates that an honest measure of the national debt may be $85 trillion—about $275,000 for every man, woman and child. That debt can’t ever be paid in full, or even by half. Common sense sez there’s no way to squeeze $275,000 out of each American (over $1 million from the average family of four)—simply because the people don’t have sufficient assets to pay such bills.

If I had to bet, I’d predict that at least 80% (and perhaps 90%) of that debt can’t be paid and therefore won’t be paid. If so, at least 80% of the current value of existing treasury bonds will be repudiated. Those holding US bonds will lose their assets.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has calculated that the entire funded and unfunded national debt is about $202 trillion—about $650,000 for every man, woman and child. If it’s impossible to pay the national debt as calculated by John Williams, it’s doubly impossible to repay the national debt calculated by the CBO—and doubly certain that those holding paper debt-instruments are going to lose their assets.

Jim Sinclair’s Commentary from http://www.jsmineset.com

The most substantial development hides in Weed.

The national egg is slowly cracking, a heads up, from David Madisonstyle.

Remember the Russian economist that predicted the USA would break down into various United States versus the US Central Government? How could that happen? Well, here are the seeds planted for the conflict called nullification.

If the central government passes a law that exceeds its ceiling of power as described in the Constitution, the individual states have a right to refuse to obey it. Claiming rights today is a very dangerous act. Claim the right of Warrant and see what happens to you when the local or federal swat guys come through the door. By the way they are trained that the first thing they shoot are your dogs.

What many have feared for so long is developing right in front of your eyes.

BIG VICTORIES UNDER THE RADAR TUESDAY NIGHT
by Jon Rappoport
November 8, 2012

www.nomorefakenews.com

Okay, so we saw Obama and Romney go head to head and grab the headlines Tuesday night. Clown puppet A beat clown puppet B. The real winner was big federal government, and that was a foregone conclusion before a single vote had been cast or rigged.

Big gov was going to come out on top either way. We knew that.

But at the state level, six things happened that are cause for celebration. Six states told the federal government to take a long walk on a short pier. They passed ballot measures which directly contradict federal law and, in three cases, the US Supreme Court.

The egg is slowly cracking.

It’s called Nullification. If the central government passes a law that exceeds its ceiling of power as described in the Constitution, the individual states have a right to refuse to obey it.

More on Frankenstein foods

The following was submitted by James Corbett in this mornings International Forecaster:


“Biotechnology”

Intended meaning: The modification of living organisms by scientific processes for the benefit of humankind.


Actual meaning: The use of technology to tamper with the genomes of plants and animals in order to create hybrid monstrosities for the benefit of well-connected corporations like Monsanto, Syngenta, Cargill and other seed monopolists. Funded and promoted by the Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation and other billionaires (who also happen to be heavy investors in the Svalbard doomsday seed vault project), GMOs and other examples of biotech are supposed to reduce farmers' reliance on pesticides, increase crop yields, and create foods that are perfectly safe for humans to consume. In reality, GMOs increase reliance on pesticides, produce no gain in crop yields, and are consistently shown in independent testing to have disastrous health consequences including increased cancer rates and sterility. They are, however, perfect for helping a very few companies to concentrate more and more of the world's food supply in the hands of fewer and fewer individuals, and have so far been spectacularly successful in accomplishing that very goal.

Excerpt today from a Jim Willie letter:

The deadly decline in California state sales tax receipts, down 40% from July 2011 to July 2012, in my view serves as the most deadly of highly visible signposts. The land of rotten fruits and bitter nuts is being racked by gasoline shortages.
