How did the dollar die? First it died slowly — then all at once.
The slow death began with the dollar’s birth as a global reserve currency. America was creditor and manufacturer to the world, and the capitalist superpower. People around the globe transacted overwhelmingly in dollars. Above all else, people needed dollars to conduct trade, and they were willing to pay richly for them, and for dollar-denominated debt.
By the ’90s America began enjoying a tremendous free lunch — the world provided America with goods, resources and services, and Americans provided the global reserve currency, as well as acting as world military policing global shipping. Why manufacture at home, or produce resources at home when the world wants your currency? To get what you want, all you have to do is run your printing press — which was much easier after 1971, when Nixon ended the gold exchange standard. In a flat free-trade world, supply chains and technology agglomerated wherever the labour was cheapest, which was predominantly Asia. So America let her industrial base and her domestic supply webs degenerate, to enjoy the free lunch that the dollar brought:
The next leg of the story is that foreigners realised that actually maybe the necessity of the dollar was an illusion. With America no longer the world’s manufacturer or creditor, who needs America? If you need a consumer, there are billions of people and trillions of dollars, and trillions of dollars worth of resources in Asia, and South America, and Europe. America’s government is deeply-indebted, and its military is bogged-down in difficult conflicts around the world.
As Ron Paul noted:
We are like a man who used to be rich and is in the habit of paying for everybody’s meals and announces at a lavish dinner that he will pay the bill, only to then turn to the fellow sitting nearby and say,“Can I use your credit card? I will pay you back!”
The only slow death taking place is you’re moronic wingnuz brain, the $ is still (very much) the worlds currency and while US manufacturing has declined during the Bush years but it is coming back, the US is still the world’s top manufacturing country with an output of close to 2 trillion (China is less than 1 trillion) it has been since before WWII. In order of % we manufacture the most – production machinery and equipment, industrial supplies, consumer goods, motor vehicles and parts, food, feed and beverages. China, Japan, Germany and Russia are right behind us ...

By 1980, American agriculture was so productive that a small number of farmers could feed the American people with only three-fifths of their output, leaving the rest available for export, or bound for federal storehouses. Exports, however, accounted for only one-fourth of total output. Hence, the Reagan administration sought to increase exports as a means to improve farm income and reduce the burden on taxpayers of federal farm support policies. Unfortunately, since 60% of farm income depended on the domestic market, the well-being of American consumers was the ultimate determinant of farmers' prosperity. And in the early '80s the consumer suffered through severe recession brought about by the tight-money policies of the Federal Reserve, which were intended to bring down a crushing inflation rate that had risen to 21%. The consumers' difficulties rippled through the economy's largest sector, the food and fiber chain, which accounted for over 26% of GNP and employed 22 million workers..

Most Toyota vehicles are made in the US. Princeton, IN and George Town, KY. Just so you don't type stupid things again. With the two major factories and all its suppliers Toyota is employing nearly 100,000 in the US.

P.S. The vehicle sold in the US that has the MOST American made parts is the Ohio made Honda Accord.

What does this tell you?!

***

"The November general election and doomsday concerns are leading to a spike in gun sales in Wyoming and nationally.

Gun shop owners around the nation say sales have been brisk ever since President Barack Obama was elected in 2008. They are booming now, as some gun owners fear Obama will try to limit sales of guns and ammunition if he is re-elected.

Arms manufacturer Ruger announced on March 22 that the company is temporarily suspending new orders for guns because it has a backlog of more than one million orders, FoxNews.com reported.

Another manufacturer, Sturm, also suspended new orders after receiving orders for more than one million guns in the first three months of the year, according to the report.

Two Wyoming gun shops also reported heavy demand."

You think the NRA isn't paying attention?

An uncommitted DemocRat for Romney!

Some facts that you won't see on the alphabet channels.

*After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar, but never worked as an attorney.

* As a venture-capitalist, Romney's first major business deal involved investing in a start-up office supply company with one store in Massachusetts that sold office supplies.That company, called Staples, now has over 2,000 stores and employs over 90,000 people.

* Romney or his company BainCapital (using what became known as the "Bain Way") would go on to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again, with companies like Domino's, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot Supply,

and many others.

Got your calculators handy? Let's recap.

*Volunteer campaign worker for his dad's gubernatorial campaign 1 year.

*Unpaid intern in Governor's office 8 years.

*Mormon missionary in Paris 2 years.

*Unpaid as Bishop and Stake President for his church 10 years.

*Took no salary as president of the Salt Lake Olympics 3 years.

*No salary as MA governor 4 years.

*Gave his ENTIRE INHERITANCE to charity.

*That's a grand total of 28 years of unpaid service to his country, his community and his church. Why? Because that's the kind of man Mitt Romney is.

And he’ll show you his:

1)Un-doctored Birth Certificate!

2)College transcripts!

3)Law degree!

4)Un-doctored Draft notice!

5)And un-doctored Social Security card, and what state it's registered in!

Isn’t it time for a REAL CHANGE?

A brighter HOPE for America?

No more downing the opposition?

Mitt Romney – A True American for President!

::::More Bailout Facts::::

With Chrysler and GM announcing they have repaid their government loans, it did not take long for Democrats to crow that the federal auto bailouts were a clear success. Indeed, the president and his supporters hope to make political hay from these efforts for the 2012 elections.

Never mind that the bailouts were a use of taxpayer dollars not even within the initial scope of the constitutionally questionable TARP. Never mind that taxpayers are still a major shareholder in GM. And never mind that these bailouts have ingrained a “too big to fail” strategy among American businesses, who now feel entitled to federal funding should they fall short in the marketplace.

In reality, GM’s claim about paying back bailout money is misleading. Much of the $50 billion in federal assistance came in the form of equity purchases, with the government taking a 61-percent stake in the company. The cash loan totaled “only”$6.7 billion in taxpayer dollars. For taxpayers to recoup their investment, the federal government would have to sell its 365 million shares at a profit. The break-even price would be $55 a share, but GM is currently selling at $28.90..So at a loss of $26.10 per share x 365 million shares = A shitload of money::::
And it doesn’t look like share prices are increasing any time soon. The stock market is up since mid-November by about 8 percent. But the stock of General Motors has bucked the trend. It’s down more than 16 percent since its initial public offering on November 18, 2010.

Since 1913 (the year of the Federal Reserve creation), the U.S. dollar has lost about 98% of it's value. Blame this on constant, unchecked printing of paper currency..

Fiat currency is an arbitrary (fiat) process where banks make legal tender using laws created by politicians to enforce its use. It is said to have no intrinsic value because it takes little work to create it and because it is not linked to silver or gold reserves. There is no limit as to how much fiat currency can be created. As history has shown since the Roman Empire, it always inflates and becomes worthless over time.

I think it was related to the election for sherriff that Randy Weaver lost in a close race. Immediately after that BATF agent Larry Potts arrives, generates fraudulent evidence to get the US Marshals and an FBI siper team involved, and the rest of the story is one of the most disgusting chapters in the history of our federal government... only to be exceeded a few months later by the same goddam BATF agent Larry Potts again inventing fraudulent evidence and getting 4 BATF agents killed and another 80 people burned to death.
I suspect the incumbent sherriff that squeaked by Randy Weaver in the election had some involvement in getting Larry Potts there.
Larry Potts should swing, that's for sure. Probably the local sherriff up there, too.
