"Price Is No Longer A Factor" Says India Regarding Gold Imports

India's importation of gold continues to soar.  As per article, "Purchases were about 800 tons, compared to 557 tons in 2009."

Ajay Mitra, managing director for India and the Middle East at the producer-funded group, said "Price Is No Longer A Factor."

The article link is included below.

For those of us that view gold based on a "price" factor, maybe gold is being viewed the wrong way.  Gold is, itself, a currency.

If countries like India are buying up gold as quickly as possible, it makes you wonder what our beloved United States government is doing.  I have yet to see any indication that we are doing the same.

With gold levels at an all time high, that's a pretty bold statement.  Here in the United States, there's one of these on every corner.

Wouldn't it be interesting if the United States was secretly buying up all of these businesses and their inventory when these places sent their inventory to be melted?  I think that's wishful thinking at this point.

The Fall of The "American Dream"

The AMERICAN DREAM is a 30 minute animated film that shows us how we've been scammed by the most basic elements of our government system. And spotlights a few attempts to correct it in the past, such as JFK's attempt to dismantle the "Federal" "Reserve". 

All of us Americans strive for the American Dream, and this film shows us why our dream is getting farther and farther away. 

Do you know how your money is created? Or how banking works? Why did housing prices skyrocket and then plunge? Do you really know what the Federal Reserve System is and how it affects you every single day? 

THE AMERICAN DREAM takes an entertaining but hard hitting look at how the problems we have today are nothing new, and why leaders throughout our history have warned us and fought against the current type of financial system we have in America today.

Traffic Tickets: Multi Billion Dollar Business

> Sent to me from Kathy (please don't ask why).
> Excerpts:
> "Traffic tickets  are a multi-billion industry. They have virtually nothing to do with highway safety, but they have everything to do with money."
> "[Y]ou begin to understand why this unethical system continues to expand every year."
> "Many local units of government deliberately hide this information so they don’t have to split their traffic ticket revenue with the state."
> "[Y]ou can add another $3.75 to $7.5 billion dollars in profit for insurance companies. This is why
> insurance companies “care” so much about traffic “safety” programs and are
> willing to donate millions of dollars worth of radar and laser guns to
> the police. For them, it’s simple: more tickets equal more money!"
> "Local government encourage traffic enforcement practices that rip off travelers to support local government services and to reward government employees. Yet these hypocrisies go largely unnoticed."
> One strategy they use: "Keep the
> ticket prices below the pain threshold that would compel motorists to
> aggressively contest traffic citations in court." 
> A few solutions are outlined in the article. And : "Until these changes are made, you should forget the general notion that traffic tickets are fair and traffic courts are just. The entire system focuses on maximizing income. That’s why most of the people who seriously contest a traffic ticket either win or are offered an good plea bargain. They don’t want anyone “making waves“, that would cost them money.
