“That’s money in the bank” is on old expression of the surety of the value of money housed inside a banking system. But today savers are being clobbered by less than 1% interest being offered on saved money + erosion of purchasing power due to inflation.

Larken Rose voicing a remarkably coherent video comparing the blind faith in both religion and government. Making a good case for true and rational Liberty, this is the best 12:35 minutes you’ll spend this week!
What’s so great about majority rule? A majority may be as tyrannical as a single dictator, and majorities have often deprived minorities and individuals of their rights — exploited, enslaved, and murdered them. Democratic Athens executed Socrates.
For performing his patriotic duty, Wirt was branded a liar by committee Democrats, smeared by the press and even ridiculed by Roosevelt himself, a fate that would likewise befall future anti-communists such as ex-Soviet agent Whittaker Chambers, journalist M. Stanton Evans, Representative Martin Dies (D-TX) and Senator Joseph McCarthy (R-WI).
The term “anarcho-capitalism” has, we might say, rather an arresting quality. But while the term itself may jolt the newcomer, the ideas it embodies are compelling and attractive, and represent the culmination of a long development of thought.
If I had to boil it down to a handful of insights, they would be these: (1) each human being, to use John Locke’s formulation, “has a property in his own person”; (2) there ought to be a single moral code binding all people, whether they are employed by the State or not; and (3) society can run itself without central direction.
A video and text from Judge Andrew Napolitano. This is a repost from back in 2012, and more important than ever!
What IS this stranglehold?? By various means, of which I don’t pretend to know all, the Dem-Reps have managed to assert a monopoly which serves to restrict the rights of citizens to freely vote their choice of either a party or their candidates.?
Perhaps one of the most optimistic libertarians ever was Murray Rothbard, a happy intellectual warrior if ever there was one. And he was very enthusiastic about the revolution of libertarian ideas, because he understood fundamentally that liberty is the only manner of organizing society that is compatible with human nature and human action.
To understand why I am concerned about islamists, you must first take in to consideration the nature of my business.
This is not a coffee and donut shop. This is a liv e fire indoor shooting range. People come here to buy, rent, and shoot lethal weapons. In the range, people are shooting guns in close proximity to each other, so my patrons depend on me and my discretion regarding who I allow to shoot beside them.
One mistake in judgement on my part could cost innocent people their lives. The primary reasons I am concerned about islamists shooting at my range are listed:
After 3 generations of subtle brainwashing, we have ceded our moral rights to our freedom, our property, and the very life upon which those depend. The only way of recovery is ending our support of a system which ignores morality and forces socialism upon everyone. To continue support of this immorality is equally immoral.
So simply withdraw your support… This means …
“There is literally nothing left to the financial system but rigged statistics, false promises, and ever expanding debt. In fact, the concept of debt creation is the only thing holding our facade of an economy together.You and I probably find this rather strange. I have come across many mainstream economic acolytes and cultists in recent months who disregard ALL logic and reason, forsaking the realities of demand based trade and immersing themselves in a grand delusion in which central bank generated debt and inflation are the real source of “prosperity”.
