●The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes.
●Austerity is the government’s method for widening the gap between rich and poor, which ultimately leads to civil disorder.
●Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.
●To survive long term, a monetarily non-sovereign government must have a positive balance of payments.
●Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.
●The penalty for ignorance is slavery.
●Everything in economics devolves to motive, and the motive is the gap.
I am a Jew.
Do you hate me?
I am a Muslim. Do you hate me?
I am gay, black, brown, an immigrant, a pregnant teenager, yellow, red and a Catholic priest. Do you hate me?
Obama immigration delay means 60,000 to be deported by November Do you hate them? Do you even care?
Or have you seen this the face of hatred?
In the Irish city of Limerick, in 1904, the priest John Creagh promoted a boycott of the Jews.
“It is madness”, the Christian leader declared, “for a people to allow an evil to grow in their midst that will cause them ruin”. Orders were given to the Jews’ customers not to buy their goods and to repay their loans. If the Jews walked in the streets they were beaten, confronting crowds shouting “Death to the Jews!” and “Hunt them out”.
A century later, a committee in Ireland’s Oireachtas, the country’s legislature, called for a national ban on imported products from “Israeli settlements considered internationally as illegal”.
The Irish government will also try to take the lead in the European Union in establishing such a ban and will champion an EU-wide ban during Ireland’s EU presidency next year.
Or is this the face of hatred?
[A] Jew [is] of that most contemptible of religions, the most vile of faiths…They, both the ancient and modern [Jews], are altogether the worst liars…They are the filthiest and vilest of peoples, their unbelief horrid, their ignorance abominable.
The vilest infidel ape [i.e., Jews; per Koran 5:60, 2:65, 7:166]…Do not consider that killing them [Jews] is treachery.
Amnesty has accused ISIS of “systematic ethnic cleansing,” including mass killings, of ethnic and religious minorities in Iraq.
We have become so acceptance of hatred, we even have made hatred into a game:
In the game, the protagonist (the player can choose either a neo-Nazi or a Klansman) runs through a ghetto killing African-Americans and Latinos, before descending into a subway system to kill Jews. Finally he reaches the “Yiddish Control Center”, where a fictionalized version of Ariel Sharon, then Prime Minister of Israel, is directing plans for world domination. The player must kill him to win the game.
Here we have seen the institutionalized, laughable, even enjoyable hatred. Have you played the game?
One cannot reason with hatred. There are no facts to dissuade hatred. Hatred always invents excuses for its existence. Hatred never builds. Hatred always destroys.
Islam is divided by hatred as is Christianity. Every nation that has encouraged or even allowed hatred, has experienced its corrosive effect. The Inquisition helped destroy Spain. The Holocaust, fostered by all of Europe, helped destroy Europe.
As hatred once again fills Europe, the destruction grows. No people filled with hatred ever can confine that hatred. It is a wild, untamable virus. It always spreads its poison tentacles, engulfing more and more of those who encouraged it and even those who stood by silently.
Hatred knows no boundaries. You cannot hide. Hatred will seek you out.
Now today, we see it in America, a metastasizing tumor, providing haters with excuses for murder by police and by civilians, excuses fo the deportation of unfortunate innocents, excuses to deny the poor health care and even water, excuses to close our eyes to bigotry and injustice.
The Detroit water shutoffs, the Ferguson police shooting, Texas Sheriff Joe Arpaio — all give lie to any claims that hate crimes “really have not increased all that much.” For none of these technically are classed as “hate crimes.”
They are the hidden rot, that slowly undermines, until even the mightiest tree falls. You are not safe from hatred. It turns neighbor against neighbor — against you. You cannot escape hatred. You cannot stand by.
If you do not defeat hatred it will defeat you. There are no neutrals in this war.
The widening Gap between the rich/powerful and the rest is caused by more than mere ignorance of economics and Monetary Sovereignty, more even than by the greed of the rich and the politicians and media the rich buy. The Gap is encouraged and fostered by hatred — hatred of those who need help, by those who could provide it.
The rich teach us to despise the poor as deserving of poverty, and despise minorities as deserving of anguish.
And so we have the Tea Party preaching an end to Social benefits for impoverished “takers,” and the right wing who demand that the government teach Christ to non-Christians, and the xenophobes demanding that child immigrants be sent back to misery and murder, and the pious who demand the death of the mother to produce the unborn, and the law enforcers who kill the innocent to protect you.
The list goes on and the Gap grows, urged by hatred.
Thus does our beautiful world die, not with a bang nor even a whimper, but with the slow internal rot of hatred.
Have you contributed, lately? Have you turned away?

10 Steps to Economic Misery: (Click here:)
1. Maintain or increase the FICA tax..
2. Spread the myth Social Security, Medicare and the U.S. government are insolvent.
3. Cut federal employment in the military, post office, other federal agencies.
4. Broaden the income tax base so more lower income people will pay.
5. Cut financial assistance to the states.
6. Spread the myth federal taxes pay for federal spending.
7. Allow banks to trade for their own accounts; save them when their investments go sour.
8. Never prosecute any banker for criminal activity.
9. Nominate arch conservatives to the Supreme Court.
10. Reduce the federal deficit and debt
No nation can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth. Monetary Sovereignty: Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia.
Two key equations in economics:
1. Federal Deficits – Net Imports = Net Private Savings
2. Gross Domestic Product = Federal Spending + Private Investment and Consumption – Net Imports
THE RECESSION CLOCK
Vertical gray bars mark recessions.
As the federal deficit growth lines drop, we approach recession, which will be cured only when the growth lines rise. Increasing federal deficit growth (aka “stimulus”) is necessary for long-term economic growth.
