Gold Bugs

Been busy have not had much time to write sorry. I hope all my readers had a wonderful holiday and hopefully a wonderful new year. My mother bought me a book for christmas, it was "Rich Dad's Advisors: Guide to Investing In Gold and Silver." I haven't finished this book yet but so far has been one of the most interesting books I have read all year. Not only does this book teach you how to invest in silver and gold, it also teaches you the histroy of silver and gold and why silver and gold should be in everyone portfolio. I have a ton of physical silver at home and after reading the frist 3 chapters of this book, I sent way for some gold. Not alot. When I bought this gold, an oz was just under $1100. With in a year or two the value will certainy increase with inflation and when this war is over forget about it ill make a killing.

Nationalities - What are we?

I have been doing some reading about how in the Byzantine empire every walk of life existed in peace until one day a man stood up and realized his family several hundred years came from Greece and started loose pride for Byzantine and gainned pride for greece though his family had been out of Greece for several hundred years(I know Greece was part of the Byzantine Empire). Others started doing the same and of course one nationality thought they were better then others and problems between people started to emerge later on contributing to the collapse. After the collapse greece and other nations were restored. The United States has people from all over just like the Byzantine Empire did with more pride for their ancestors former country then their own. Currently it seems there is a sterotype for each Nationality.

Just thinking! Me, both my parents and all my grandparents were born in the United States and have american citizenships. All of my great grandparents on my fathers side came from Greece and my great grandparents on my mother side came from Germany, Ireland and Scotland(came meaning they got on that boat, traveled across the atlantic checked in at ellis island and started a new life in new york). Regarless of my nationality I am 100% human like you and that should be all that matters.

I have a sister who brags about being greek to family and friends though we have never been to Greece and we are the fourth genetation americans. First question. When do we stop bragging about being greek. Maybe tenth generation? or by the time you become less then 15% greek (thinking about future generations). The factor of the matter is all these meaningless braggings just makes her look like an arrogant fool.

Now in order to be greek by great grandparents would have once had to live in Greece. Odds are that if we went back a couple of generations my greek ancestors would have most likely came from another country whether it was in their lifttime, 4 generation before them, or 4 centuries before them. Lets get say my great grandparents, great grandparents came to greece from Italy does this mean my great grandparents use to brag about being italian? If this ends up being true does this mean I should start telling people im italian? If i decide to move to Canada and have children, will my Children brag about being American, Canadien, Greek, or all three? What do you think?

The point im trying to make is why do people who are several generations in brag so much about their "ancestors" nationality when 90% of them will never go to their "ancestors"home country or bother to learn the language? Alot of them don't even know the history of the nation or current affiars of the nation they are bragging about. What if the history was all about tyranny is that something to be bragging about? Being human is all that should really matter.

Stealing Your Nickle through Water Bottles!

This is a followup to an older post. New York's new water bottle tax is bull shit! When I read about the new water bottle tax, they stated it was more of an incentive to get people to start recycling. They would charge anyone who bought a water bottle an extra five sense and inorder to recieve your five cents back you have to bring it to Stop and Shop or another food store for recycling. I was underthe impression with others that this ment pay an extra five cents at the register and get your five cents back when you recycle it plus you would get the original five cents your are suppose to get back when you recycle. In other words Stop and Shop is suppose to give me two nickles one for tax and one for the bottle. This is bullshit! I ended up paying an extra five cents at the register and five cents back from recycling. Where is my other nickle?

Why Does This Piss Me Off? I'm a hard working american just like all of you and I don't think its right to have a new tax which is suppose to save the environment by stealing our hard earned nickles, Or any other tax that nickle and dimes us over petty stuff. What happens when we have nothing left? The Economy is bad enough as it is so how will stealing our money going to allow us more to spend? (Spending means buying products creating start ups) Do we even know where our money is going? I don't but I do know alot of our money is being spent in this war that no american wants(people voted for Obama who promised to bring the troops home, what happened?) . Our Nobel peace prize wining president just sent a nother 30,000 troops over seas. Maybe this is where our money is going. Or maybe our warmongle president is going to be using it to create bunch of new temp jobs like rebuilding tunnels and bridges as he announced earlier this week. Creating temp jobs is just going to create another recession once the money is spent and the roads and tunnels are rebuilt it doesnt take a genuis to realize this one.

If these scumbag Senators or congressmen get to vote for rising taxes, creating regulations and supporting stimulus plans which is all bad for the economy, then why cant the american people vote to reduce their salaries, kick them out office for breaking promises, lower taxes or remove regulations.
