    "Bondage" includes "Bond". They must be British Spies! "Bond. James Bond." Since you "know" it is true, surely you have documentation to support your claim. State Secretaries of State have nothing to do with US Treasuries. How are they issued? Congress determines they have a budget shortfall and notify the US Treasury how much they need to borrow. The Treasury then decides how to raise the money- what time terms of debt they want to issue. Two month Treasuries? Ten year notes? A mixture?

    Like us, their debt was in unsecured bonds. And no assets seized by creditors who lost $billions.

    If your employer is paying 100% you are paying zero. CPI measures your out of pocket costs for things. You didn't pay the premium- your employer did. The money did not come out of your take home wages. Yes, your wages may be lower because your employer is covering your insurance but that does not count in the CPI. It looks at what you are actually paid and what you actually spend. If you are a person and have $10, you can loan me $10. If you are a bank and you have $10 in deposits, you are allowed to loan out $9 if there is a ten percent reserve requirement.

    The new statement avoids any mention of amounts. That is because they can't get to $200 billion. The China denial was in response to White House statement that China had agreed to buy $200 million more from us. http://fortune.com/2018/05/17/china-trump-trade-dispute-deficit-cut/ The only specific agricultural concession mentioned is that China will cut a tariff on sorghum- China only buys about $1 billion worth of that a year so it won't have any impact on the trade deficit (they are starting to use it to replace corn imports to feed livestock). http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-sorghum-china-20180418-story.html 998553122179084290 To get to Trump's goal of $200 billion increase in exports to China on agriculture alone, China would have to buy every ounce we currently export to the entire world plus another $60 billion worth (about 50% more) we consume domestically. US exports about $140 billion a year in agricultural products. https://www.statista.com/statistics/220767/total-value-of-us-agricultural-exports-since-2000/ China currently imports $20 billion worth so they would need to buy ten times what they currently do.

    So if I buy a US Treasury I can trade it in on people? If the government ever defaults on Treasuries, you get squat. You can't say "I want that statue from the Smithsonian instead!" Not like a car loan is backed by the value of your car and they can take that if you fail to make payments. If the government decides to stop paying on their borrowing (Treasuries) and you own one or more, you get.... nothing. It is unsecured debt. Your car loan was secured- the government debt is not. You are kind of right- their value is based on their ability to tax but the are not backed by anything beyond the word of the government.

    If a family of four has one wage earner and they have say employer covered insurance, then that is four people (not just one) not paying health insurance premiums. Employer coverage may not necessarily be 100% of premiums- that was an example- but the employer is still picking up a considerable portion of that amount. I have employer coverage and only pay $20 a month towards my premiums. So as far as the CPI is concerned, my health insurance costs are $120 a year. All those government programs and employer plans greatly lower the costs for the average person's insurance costs. If one pays $100, one pays zero, one pays $200 and one pays $5000, the average expense is $1325. The more people you have paying little to no insurance premium costs, the lower the average expenses for insurance premiums are for the entire population. Employer plans, CHIP, Medicare, Medicaid, uninsured.

    Like America in Afghanistan and Iran, Russia has been "in the process" of leaving for several years now. Peace is right around the corner. Or maybe the next corner. Every year he says he is withdrawing his troops from Syria. More of their "drawdown" from just a few days ago: http://tass.com/defense/1004567

    If your employer is covering 100% of your health insurance premiums, your costs are zero. If you are under Medicaid and don't pay any insurance premiums, your out of pocket insurance costs are zero. If one family is paying for example $5000 a year and the other two are paying zero, then the average person is paying $1600- not $5000. The portion of your insurance costs paid by somebody else are not counted as part of your (the average person's) expenses. CPI attempts to calculate what the average person actually pays out of their own pockets. Most people have somebody else paying most if not all of their insurance costs (actually they are paying too- it is in the form of lower wages in the case of employer paid insurance or higher taxes in the case of government funded/ subsidized insurance premiums). The figure is not based on what average premiums are since it has to account for people who have no premiums as well. Out of 325 million in the US, 53 million have Medicare. 155 million get insurance through their employer. 27 million have no insurance. 57 million get theirs through Medicaid or CHIP. Ten million were on Obamacare but got subsidies. All those people were paying little to no money out of their own pockets or at least below average for their medical insurance. Those add up to 300 million people or 90% of the population.

    Thank you for the link. That is what they say. Also keep in mind that this is the average person direct costs. If your insurance is from your employer, only your out of pocket counts towards the CPI insurance costs. If you are covered by the VA or Medicare, again, only the portion of that insurance you are paying is counted. Not everybody is paying $5000 a year themselves for their insurance. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_insurance_coverage_in_the_United_States

    US Treasuries are not backed by anything but dollars. There is no collateral behind them. They can't demand anything else (oil, gold, etc) for them though they could sell their Treasuries (lowering the value of them) and use that money to buy those things if they wanted to.

    Turkey's currency sucks. Even Turks keep most of their money outside their own currency plus they have double digit inflation. He is trying to prop it up (but won't do gold backed currency). He did suggest the IMF demand that all their loans be repaid in gold. Turkey has 582 tonnes which at $1300 an ounce would be worth about $24 billion- of that, about 28 tonnes were stored in the US. For comparison, the US has over 8,000 tonnes. Their annual trade deficit is $77 billion or three times their gold reserves. https://www.forbes.com/sites/stevehanke/2017/12/03/how-gold-would-fix-turkeys-achilles-heel-the-lira/#a374b3f2cb21 One tonne (metric ton) of gold- Turkey had 28 times this in New York:

    Please stop posting in my threads. Ok? you arent an libertarian since that is the case here just what are you doing here then? in fact if you truly support Ron Paul's movement just what have you done since 2008?

    In one of the threads that i had posted on Dec 3 you desperately tried on defending the Ukrainian opposition while as i pointed on the thread how your beloved Ukrainian opposition are nothing more then a bunch of parties with a history of having Nazism Ideology. This is not your first time, you also defended the Syrian Rebels and what for again?

    I lived in Europe you haven't. I have family in Europe do you? doubtfully. Before you can claim that the EU is more freer ok then why dont you go there and stay there in the EU for a couple months and see if you can find a job?

I appreciate the fact that you believe in what you are doing, there's no way you would be posting so much if you didn't. I also believe in what I am doing. Start new threads linking to and countering my threads if you want. I will stay out of them. Sound like a good solution?
