Well I've pretty unlucky with comments lately. Didn't mean to say anything negative, was just trying to share another version of the picture that I enjoyed.
Probably could have phrased it better.

Oh well, down with my comment I go.

Well, that's disheartening. I've experienced the same in the past, you'd think that I would've remembered that before commenting.

ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO FIND THIS OUT!!!!!

I support Ron Paul as a politician, but I can't stand talking to most of his supporters, because most don't know what they're talking about and only do so because they think he's going to throw free weed at them. I too think weed should be legalized, but come on, the man has other platforms.

MFW I see ******** wearing Ron Paul shirts at my college in the style of Che Guivera, and I know at least 3 of 5 of them are ******* idiots.

Prove it. We didn't have a federal reserve before 1914 and we were one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

Please learn about economics. The Federal Reserve buys and sells treasury bonds to control the money supply. This affects aggregate demand because it causes the interest rate to go down allowing businesses to invest more freely. This increases output (albeit only in the short run) and can decrease the severity of a recession.

Furthermore, fiscal policy has to be decided on by congress and whatnot and can take up to a year to actually have an effect. by that time the problem may have changed and the solution implemented would become moot if not causing more damage. Monetary policy on the other hand (that's the fed) takes effect much more quickly. this is because they can just up and do it. no arguing.

TL;DR: The Federal reserve does a lot of stuff that wasn't necessary pre 1914 due to the nature of the economy. If we didn't have the fed the current recession we're in would be much worse.

Ya but a gold standard would control inflation, probably better, then we wouldn't have to worry about tinkering with pulling and releasing cash flow, and the credit disaster could have been minimalized in 2009. sometimes it seems the fed has a little too much freedom to act too quickly, causing bubbles that lead to worse recession. I understand that that's based on calls made that could happen in any setup, but it just seems to me that gold standard is safer. That way if somehow our currency collapses (which could be easy seeing how it depends on other nations currency) we would still have gold as a back-up.

a gold standard would not control inflation. have you ever taken an economics class? do you understand how economies work?

Gold is not a stable commodity, and it cannot be used as fiat currency, because it is a physical item

Do you know what gold standard or econ. are? Gold standard is not using gold as currency, it is only printing money equal to the amount of gold the government has. So every dollar of currency is backed by an equal amount of gold. As the price of gold rises and falls, so the amount of currency fluctuates with it. This may cause some deflation, but excess inflation, which we just dealt with, can be just as bad and lasts longer.

So yes, I know my econ, and there's a risk in everything, but many people feel gold standard is safer than uncontrollable inflation and interest rate fluctuation.

that's my point. it's unstable, and because of that is completely WORTHLESS as a standard for currency.

see picture. it's the price of gold (per ounce) from '68 to '10 both, also adjusted for inflation (the red line).

do you see the obvious problem with basing your currency on something you dig out of the ground? your money supply is based on the mining production which fluctuates. increase in production = drastic inflation. decrease in production = massive deflation.

if there is an economic crisis, the monetary demand cannot be manipulated to ease the crisis under a gold standard.

as the economy grows, the money supply should also grow, but with a gold standard, this is impossible, as again, it's based on gold production.

during a recession, it's best to add more money to the economy to boost production and slow down the recession. this is impossible with a gold standard.

That's why gold is used in the gold standard... It's a commodity that is easily traded. If the economy is growing, two things happen. a) the price of gold will most likely grow. b) The government can buy/trade more gold to grow currency, sell/trade away, during downward economy.
So it's not impossible.

As per your graph, what I notice is that gold naturally dips in periods of recession and climbs in periods of growth, even predicts the 2000's recession better than the fed ever could.

it's completely impractical, which is why every mainstream economist will tell you the same thing: the gold standard is one of the worst economic ideas ever proposed.

I see your point, but more money exists in the economy than actual printed money. going back to gold backed money just isn't possible. The same reason if everyone all at once tried to withdraw all their money from the bank it they wouldn't be able to.

That being said, the Fed may have a bit too much freedom, but it's because they're pretty much the only ones who know what they're doing. Congress doesn't understand a lot of what they're doing (not saying I do) but if we limited their power it could result in people who don't know what they're talking about not allowing the fed to do something that could really help.

And even if I did think the fed has too much power, completely abolishing the central bank all at once would be idiotic. Getting rid of it at all would hurt more than it helped.

A Ron Paul post including the Constitution seems a relevant place for me to rant. Here we go...   
   
To everyone saying the Boston Bomber should not be given an attorney, a trial, and should be tortured or that both his mother's and his citizenship should be stripped (booting his mom out of America) and the mother's phone lines need to be tapped:   
SHUT THE **** UP   
To everyone saying those rights are only for American citizens, you need to doubly shut the **** up. Our inalienable rights depend on our humanity, not citizenship. Any human being stripped of their rights is an offense to everything the United States stands for, even if the person is a monster. Firstly, any human is entitled to these rights as already stated, but secondly if it can happen to him, what is stopping the government from doing it to others they deem to be monsters or "terrorists" as a more political term? Nothing. We would set a horrible precedent. If you strip this man and his family of citizenship, torture him, or even refuse him trial you will compromise everything we as Americans have left to stand on. The true tragedy, then, would not be the lives he killed and maimed, but rather that he succeeded in also scarring the face of America forever and forced our fundamental understanding of human rights to tumble.

I might be trying to start an argument where there isn't one, but give my view and you can decide what your take on it is.

I don't interpret human rights literally. Yeah everyone deserves a fair trial, jury of their peers, legal counsel, etc., even those who commit horrible crimes, but that's just a device to prevent the government from being arbitrary. It doesn't mean we have to send our army to every corner of the earth to save people from oppression. It's not feasible for everyone who needs it, and frankly, they're outside of our legal domain.

This post is seriously a good opinion. It seems like everything on american news is twisted to be against the "terrorists" they captured. This is starting to seems like a conspiracy to me, a show of power and control by the american government. EVERYONE SHOULD BE GIVEN EQUAL RIGHT AND TREATED FAIRLY AND IT IS IRRELEVANT OF WHAT THEY DID. the guy wasnt even read his Miranda rights yet that doesnt seem to be a big deal. whats to stop the american government from pointing the finger at any of its citizens and because you are told on the news certain facts and pieces of information you blindly follow.

I agree, but the reason he hasn't been read his Miranda rights is because he's in the hospital doped up on pain killers, and if his rights are given when he's not ina sound state of mind, they're null and void, and he could still be let off for it.

Got to Skype with Ron Paul a few weeks ago at the California Young Americans For Liberty conference. I'll never forget what he said:

"The thing about the freedom philosophy is that it is appealing to everyone."

I was honored to have voted for him in November in my very first political election I was eligible to be a part of :)

I got the same opportunity at the Young Americans for Liberty conference in Kansas. He said something extremely similar to us too that, "liberty and the liberty movement can never die because it appeals to everyone and there are too many people like us fighting everyday for it." I'd totally upload pictures, but I'm too new here :(

That must've been an interesting conversation. One of the few honest politicians still out there. I just believe that he's in the wrong party. I wouldn't be too certain though being from Canada and all eh. I still try and follow American politics considering that whatever happens in the States has a ripple effect on the rest of the world. You need to know what it's aboot.
