GOD, Guns, GOLD and Groceries
[I'd] like to address is the complete FALLACY regarding our monetary system.
The eco-doomsday sages all seem to think that we should all be debt free and have all of our investments in GOLD.
So there is "worth" in gold?
This is the biggest problem with humans today.GOLD? Because it makes a nice shiny ring?[GOLD] is as much a "fiat system" as paper money.
GOLD? Because it is a heavy metal?
GOLD? Because it can be used in electronic devices that further enslave us?
Because it makes a nice tooth filling and is non toxic?
Because THEY told us so.
Paper or wood (money even) can be used for at least as many beneficial human uses as gold. I won't go in to them here.
But my point is, a medium of exchange is as valuable as the exchangers want to make it.
Things of "REAL VALUE" such as drinking water, uncontaminated food, shelter, warmth in the cold or cold in the warmth, security and peace of mind for yourself and your children, are PRICELESS.
The most beautiful and pristeen and largest diamond in the world PALES beside my children, my hopes for them and my desire for all of humanity to understand that simple phrase.

Many thanks to my dear friend vper1, the artist behind our banner of freedom, for bringing it to my attention, and to my friend, Doc, who inspired the title God, Guns, Gold, and Groceries.
Gold is NOT the solution for our exchange system.
What is the solution?
a PUBLICLY OWNED medium of exchange, whatever it may be, that remains just that and nothing more.
As long as it is NOT transformed into a PRIVATE COMMODITY, we'll be okay.
In the meantime, use your groceries to sustain you, and
Put your LOVE in your family and friends, and
your guns only as a last resort.
your TRUST in GOD and eachother.
