Where Is The Money?

Questions I have asked myself since these power mongers stole trillions of dollars from our world:

  • Where is the money?!?
  • How much do they have to take from you before you baulk?
  • Does this "world crisis" really seem all that mysterious to you?
  • If you put your hand in front of your face will you NOT get mad if they smash it into your nose? Or will you just stand there look at the ground? Maybe defend their actions to your friends and family? Decry their critics to be blasphemers?
  • Where is the spine in all this dodging and capitulation mumbo jumbo?
  • Are you a controllable coward who repeats what the most powerful person you've heard speak lately told you to think?
  • Can I take all your wealth, health, freedom, and the future of your children? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions you might be a tool, a fool, or a ghoul. In that case I can't wrap my mind around this notion. Is this the self-image I want?
  • How many obvious incongruities will it take for you to recognize a lie?
  • How long can someone purposely mislead and harm you before you become angry?
  • Are these important questions? Look into the eyes of those you care most about and ask yourself these questions. I tell myself to keep asking until I have an answer.
  • Are you a William Wallace or an English tool demanding Prima Noctis? Or maybe just someone watching while the demand is made, doing nothing?
  • Do you want your children to be endentured remember their father as a toad who allowed all this to happen and said nothing? I don't. I can't. I WILL NOT.

Some number crunchings and munchings based on a 26 trillion dollar theft are listed below. The actual total, if all funds are included back through when the International Bank of Settlements issued phony treasury bonds, is much, much larger. These bonds were issued to governments and to this date not one of them has been honored!

Hours of work @ $10/hr represented by $26 trillion : 2,600,000,000,000 hours

Hours of work @ $1.50/hr (closer to the worldwide reality over last 30 years) represented by $26 trillion : 17,333,333,333,333 hours

Years of work @ $10/hr represented by $26 trillion : 1,250,000,000 YEARS!

Years of work @ $1.5/hr represented by $26 trillion : 8,333,333,333 YEARS! That's over 8 BILLION years worth the effort in man-hours. That's a lot of work by a lot of people!

Feel like you're spinning your wheels when you show up at your 9-to-5 to work? Feel like your energy and effort is just falling off the end of a giant assembly line and disappearing with no real benefit to you?

If you answer "yes" to this question you are not alone. Help find out where 8 billion years worth the sweat and tears of laborers worldwide has gone and it will make a difference.

They took it away from generations to yet be born. Get informed folks and get out and vote. This is what I like to think of as a call to action article. At least it makes you think about it.

if you're poor (meaning less than a few hundred million!) you have statutory law up your &%*. If you aren't you start a military campaign and you steal what you like, lie to your people to gain support, and answer to no one... Man we really gotta put our feet forward. We little guys have 14 billion feet total afterall...

Agreed, but fighting power with power usually becomes a nasty and counterproductive measure. Thinking independently and not as a herd is about the most power you can give yourself as an individual. Changes typically stems from individualism versus large groups.

to qualify that...I mean if we are all thinking individually but scattering in different directions it will be like crabs; one crab can crawl out of a bucket, but two or more cannot, because whenever one nears the top the others' efforts drag them back down...no thought of the next second. No unity of effort or whatever. the whole while the other side of the coin ARE unified, in a way not in our best interests.

that's very true, violence is not the answer. We could put our feet forward in a broadway musical, as long as people show up and the point is there...its vision and ethics that will change the world, not "just" individuality... : )

Outstanding article. Those are some big numbers, but true. I have only worked 7 months in the last 3 1/2 years because I have been told to my face that I am to old. I am 58. That is why I am doing this and hope it works out for me and my wife. We loose our house next month and have no idea where we are going to end up. It is scary.

I can relate. I was laid off in Jan and the last job I applied for had 122 applicants for one position! They claim they have to tax us because it "funds" the government but the amount of personal income tax directly correlates to the amount found unaccountable each year from the gov coffers. Then we find out that they have been stealing 98 cents out of every dollars worth the effort/wealth generated? If they hadn't stolen all the worlds money we wouldn't even need taxation or seat-belt laws or any of that crap to fund our society. There is plenty of wealth that has been generated over the last hundred years alone to support and nurture every human being but not when scumbags steal it...check out the links in the article to get more info at the blog on this topic. Encourage people to get upset and cry NO to this. thnx for checking it out, the blog content will grow steadily because i'm pretty passionate about this and theres lots of info. Share!
