Yeah- stand up for Jesus, onward Christian soldiers marching as to war ✝️

 

They can cancel Christmas for all I care, as Jesus was born in September, not in cold snowy December.

I celebrate Christmas as it's my spiritual birthday (24th December 2001). That day shall always be celebrated (and the season itself) because it was an extraordinary 12 days from repentance to being filled with the Holy Spirit on Jan 01st 2002.

Brilliant quote. Yes, I'll take medical advice from that man.

 

How's the weather today, Bill?

"You would need to go outside to see what the weather is like today, but that would mean you would have to go outside."

 

Ever notice Bill Gates has the same voice as Kermit the Frog?

My sister works for microsoft - and even though he left they still have to watch documentaries about how great a man he is and stuff - like a really weird cult....

 

My sister is usually chilled - only time I saw her get REALLY angry is when I made a comment about Bill Gates and the Cabal............😁

Sorry to bust your bubble here but we have been on a digital currency since the sixties, and the only money you carry is metallic, the paper stuff with pretty pictures on and all is fiat, or more appropriate FAITH currency as it's backed by your imagination, but still if you insist.

I don't understand economics but could you put that (fiat being backed by imagination) in simple terms please?

Well your both right, a hundred thousand pieces of paper is just that, and digits on a screen is an illusion as well, out of the two I want neither, so we have to examine which of the two will hold value longest, so if Government stopped poncing around with inflation and stuff, i guess we could go on with the illusion of paper cash that is backed by something of value and live happily ever after, some how though i don't see that happening.

 

It all went to shit in 1971. Thank Nixon for that.

Exactly as stated, it used to be backed by gold and silver in a time when people had morality and wanted the books to balance but greed set in, so the intrinsic value of metal was removed, therefore free floating against other currency's with perceived value.

No thank the bandit's that got the key's to fort knox, Nixon probably went for a visit and said some thing like "ohh crap does this mean we're broke"

Are bats that tasty? There can't be much meat on them, to begin with, and why would you even bother eating the wings? Maybe if they were to be deep fried. Hell, anything taste good deep fried. Still, I'll take a pass on this one.

How drunk would one have to be to even think about slurping from this bowl?

 

In case anyone wants to try for themselves:

I would explain it like this....

 

Gold was literally money prior to us going off the Gold standard.

 

What bank notes were, essentially, promissory notes - so you didn't have to carry around a load of gold with you, or have to chisel bits off.

 

In the 1970s we went off the gold standard.

 

So your money which was literally gold, literally disappeared, just like dat. And now it is a representation of essentially nothing.......

 

And yes, they just took the gold (your money) and gave you imaginary money in it's place......

If Nixon happened to find a leftover kilogram bar, it would be worth over $50,000 today, in his fiat currency value. I'm sure there were a few leftover that were 'seized under presidential orders' ;-)

In fact all the gold ever dug out the ground still exists.

Basically, in the ancient world you would buy your goods and services by weight of gold or silver. For example, and ounce of gold may buy you 20 goats. There was no 'dollar' amount.

 

Then when bank notes came along, in the USA for example, your paper was backed by an exact amount of gold that you could claim from the bank at any time. It actually said on the note something like 'x amount of gold payable to the bearer of this note on demand'.

 

Then long story short, after a few adjustments along the way, President Nixon took the USA off the gold standard. i.e. Your paper money was literally from 1971 onwards, backed by zero gold. Nothing. You couldn't trade your paper for anything physical in terms of precious metal. That means it became 'fiat'.

 

And the fact that the whole world was linked to the US dollar, which used to be backed by physical gold, meant the whole world by default also became backed by nothing. Just printed money.

 

Hopefully I got that about right. Feel free to correct me, anyone.

 

@Saved in my view the best video series to explain it all in simple terms is this one (full playlist below) --->

Unlike silver and platinum, especially silver, which is largely used and discarded/wasted. Yes it techincally still exists, but doesn't get hoarded on the same scale as gold. If I had to make a prediction, silver will one day be far more valuable because of its wide industrial usage and dwindling supply. Not my original thought; many people pointing this out these days.

It is, I like your thinking.
