    If governments are truly so great and wonderful, why cannot they even keep their "brown" straight on such matters that should be an agreeable cakewalk among all parties involved, such as promoting the NPT?

    Say, this raises a very concerning point, why is there no field for this (state and local taxes) as a deduction provided for on the 1040-set of IRS forms? I really doubt most people actually deduct this from their federal taxes due. (And reciprocally this rule ought to apply also to whatever state income taxes due.) Also, as an additional thought the interest accrued on all federal monies withheld throughout the year on individual and like withholdings should be credited to the taxpayer towards their taxes due or as a refund--this is literally free money the federal government is stealing from every taxpayer each year, in the sum of hundreds to thousands of dollars.

    Except gold doesn't have "intrinsic value". The concept implies objective value, which Menger and the Austrians disproved. Remember also that metallic and metal-backed currency can also be fiat if government issued.

    Not quite. They also had the value of greater portability and lighter weight, which is why people gravitate to them. #subjectivevalue You're right that gold and silver have utility for other things, but that doesn't help your argument any. It's a utilitarian point, not Austrian.

    Not true. That's why metallic standard-based bills came about. People *tend* strongly to prefer carrying paper in their wallets over coins. FRNs have value to the extent that other people want them. (Even your gold can be said to have no value if nobody but you wants to accept your gold as payment, barter, etc)

    Zip's actually right on this one. Gold/sliver eagles and the pre-FED 100% metallic standard notes were/are fiat currency. Fiat means money that is so because the government says it is so. You're thinking of unbacked paper money/scrip.

    The whole point of the article is to say that "saving money is hard". For 40% of Americans, saving money is impossible because the cost of everything continues to go up and low wages do not. Next, look at where the blame is pointed. A lot of people will blame people like Angela for not saving "enough" and try to say she is fully responsible for her own predicament. Not you or me, but there are a LOT of people out there who will blame victims of circumstance. Angela's predicament, even if she did save, is caused by drug companies charging $40,000 for a single drug, which that same drug in Canada costs $40 bucks and NONE of that money went to research. Link to that article here. We should prepare as best as we can, but there are limits to how much we can prepare. Insurance is supposed to help for situations like this, but look at the cost of both insurance and health care. You pay insurance but insurance has a bad habit of trying to not pay ANY bills at all. For Angela's situation, how much ability would her husband have to try to fight insurance companies in court after a stroke? The way insurance companies operate is predatory on those who are not able to defend themselves. If Angela's husband had not been married to Angela, he would be up shit creek without a paddle. Medical Care costs are also thru the roof. The cost of education is through the roof. The cost of living in general is through the roof. Really what is happening is not that the costs are rising, but the value of money is decreasing. The costs increasing are symptomatic of the value of the dollar, and represents exactly why Fiat Currency is a clear and present danger to society. The way that many companies handle the situations is to twist problems to blame victims and get victims to blame themselves in a way that benefits the companies, not individuals. For Angela's situation, again, she would be shown to the world as being responsible for her own problems because "she didn't buy enough insurance", when really its the insurance companies and the cost of health care that profit from Angela's situation. They put her in Checkmate, and no matter what she did or does, her situation falters through no fault of her own. I have a few disagreements with Angela, but overall, I understand that her situation is terrible through no fault of her own. I know for a fact she is the type of person to prepare for herself as best as she can and to the absolute best of her ability. Strokes happen. Her situation should be limited to coping with the situation only from a medical care perspective, but is exacerbated by the financial, time, and stress costs of that medical care to the point where surviving medically could ruin her financially, which leads us right back to square one, the title of this thread. So lets be clear here. Prepare. How does one "prepare"? Do they spend ALL their money on Health Insurance? Maybe the average person is blamed for "living beyond their means" when a single bedroom apartment now costs (here) $1500 a month and the average pay is $10 an hour? Lets blame the victim again for "not getting an education", an education that costs $50,000 and makes $30,000 a year. Can you say Teacher? I knew you could. Can you say that situation is quite normal? To be expected to be in financial dire straights and crushed by overwhelming debt to afford that education that qualifies a person only for low paying jobs? This is a new class of poverty known as "The Educated Poor". Now, take that average person who is $50,000 in debt, earning $30,000 a year, and trying to pay $1500 for a one bedroom apartment? 30k a year only provides 2500 a month BEFORE taxes, and if rent is $1500, that is well above the recommended 25% of income should be spent on housing. Now lets add in the rest of the bills. $1000 a month for health insurance. That number is also pretty average when insurance is not offered by employers. Ooops, that person...

    Hey, check out Men Without Hats S.O.S (ABBA) cover. I love it. I know you appreciate disco so I thought I would call your attention to it. I went to Retro Futura last night and saw them. Really fun show. If they come to your area, go. You will have a blast. Mr A doesn't care for that kind of music and he even had fun. I think he was mostly just enjoying making fun of me for liking gay music but still...he had fun.

The oft-parroted sound bite – “we need herd immunity”- implies that if ninety five percent of the population can become “immune” to a disease via vaccination, target immunity levels will be met and diseases will either be eradicated or controlled. This sound bite is the most commonly pulled weapon used by the vaccinators, only second to “smallpox and polio were eradicated by vaccination.” “Herd

Amino acids are the components of proteins. These amino acids are strung together like the links on a chain, where they form the proteins that make our bodies work properly. There are a few exceptions to this rule, amino acids that perform their function individually, not as components of proteins.
