"Bail Out"

"And the children of Israel remembered not the LORD their God, who had delivered them out of the hands of all their enemies on every side." Judges 8:34

In America we have been some what concerned by what we see happening in our economy. Major corporations, financial institutions, states and other public businesses having economic problems are all besieging our government to give them a "bail out"- a helping hand to pull them out of the "mess" they are in and fix their troubles. Some have received a bail out, others are waiting and hoping. The thing that I have noticed is that once they receive the bail out money, they in their "relief" that the trouble is "passed" go on their "merry" way continuing to do as they have always done.

I bring this up because it reminds me of the way we tend to treat God. We get in trouble- either of our own doing or because of someone or something else- and we turn to God for help. We ask Him to intervene, to come to our rescue, make a way, give us a solution, fight our battle, solve our problem--- "bail us out!" In His loving grace and mercy He does. But sadly, once He does, we go on our "merry" way, just glad the problem is resolved or the crisis is over. We soon forget the promises and vows that we made to Him if He would just help us. We forget His goodness, His mercy, the miracles that He performed to bring about our answer. Our gratitude is momentary. He is soon forgotten... until the next time we need help.

Tell me, what's wrong with this picture. Where our nation is concerned I see a lot wrong with the picture. But it's even worse when we adopt the same mentality toward God. Yes, we should cry out to Him for help- He is our helper and He is the only one who can help us. But we shouldn't forget Him, neglect Him or go back to our same way of living once He has helped us. We don't "use Him" to get what we want or need then "discard" Him once He's "bailed us out". We need Him desperately in the good times and bad times, in the times of need and lack as well as in the times of plenty. He is not just our "problem solver", He is our God- our object of worship. He isn't just our provider- He is the one we love and adore. He is our desire at all times not just in times of need.

Have a great day. We don't run to Him when we need help then forget Him once the crisis is over.

The People Wants The Credit Free, Free Market Economy

Dear, I should say Expensive Chairman Ben S. Bernanke,

All of Our Economic Problems Find They Root in the Existence of Credit.

Out of the $5,000,000,000,000 bail out money for the banks, that is $1,000 for every inhabitant of this planet, what is it exactly that WE, The People, got?

If my bank doesn't pay back its credits, how come I still must pay mines?

If my bank gets 0% Loans, how come I don't?

At the same time, everyday, some of us are losing our home or even our jobs.

Credit discriminates against people of lower economic classes, as such it is unconstitutional, isn't it? It is an supra national stealth weapon of class struggle.

Credit is a predatory practice. When the predator finishes up the preys he starves to death. What did you expect?

Where are you exactly in that food chain?

Credit gets in the way of All the Principles of Equal Opportunity and Free Market.

Credit is a Stealth Weapon of Mass Destruction.

Credit is Mathematically Inept, Morally Unacceptable.

You Bail Them Out, We Opt Out

President Bush Proposed the TARP, Senator Obama Voted It. Who Roots for US?

We Want Some TARP.

My Solution: The Credit Free, Free Market Economy.

Is Both Dynamic on the Short Run & Stable on the Long Run, The Only Available Short Run Solution.

I Am, Hence, Leading The Exit Out of Credit:

Opting Out Is Both Free and Strictly Anonymous.

Let me Outline for You my Proposed Strategy:

My Prescription to Preserve Our Belongings.

Our Property Title: Our Free, Strictly Anonymous Right to Opt Out of Credit.

Our Credit Free Money: The Dinar-Shekel AKA The DaSh, Symbol: - .

Asset Transfer - Our Right Grant Operation - Our Wealth Multiplier - Our Liquidity TARP.

A Specific Application of Employment, Interest and Money.
[A Tract Intended For my Fellows Economists].

If Risk Free Interest Rates Are at 0.00% Doesn't That Mean That Credit is Worthless Already?

Since credit based currencies are managed by setting short-term interest rates, on which you have lost all control, can we still say that are managing?

We Need, Hence, Cancel All Interest Bearing Debt and Abolish Interest Bearing Credit.

In This Age of Turbulence The People Wants an Exit Out of Credit: An Adventure in a New World Economic Order.

The only other option would be to wait till most of the productive assets of the economy get physically destroyed either by war or by rust.

It will be either awfully deadly or dramatically long.

A price none of us can afford to pay.

“The current crisis can be overcome only by developing a sense of common purpose. The alternative to a new international order is chaos.”

- Henry A. Kissinger

What Else?

Until We Succeed the Economy Will Necessarily Keep Sinking Into a Deeper and Deeper Depression

- Will people use the Credit Free money?

- That I don't know yet. What I already know though is that their wives will spend it.

You Bail Them Out, Let's Opt Out!

Check Out How Many of Us Are Already on Their Way to Opt Out of Credit.

If You Don't Opt Out Now, Then When Will You?

Let me provide you with a link to my press release of my open letter to you:

Chairman Ben S. Bernanke, Quantitative [Ooops! I Meant Credit] Easing Can't Work!

I am, Mr Chairman, Yours Sincerely [As if I really had the choice.],
