●Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.
●The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes. .
●Liberals think the purpose of government is to protect the poor and powerless from the rich and powerful. Conservatives think the purpose of government is to protect the rich and powerful from the poor and powerless.
●The single most important problem in economics is the gap between rich and poor.
●Austerity is the government’s method for widening the gap between rich and poor.
●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.
●Everything in economics devolves to motive, and the motive is the Gap.
If you’re like me, age 50 and older, you sometimes may have trouble urinating. The problem probably is with your enlarged prostate, which is squeezing your urethra.
Sorry to tell you guys, it will get worse as you grow older.
You go to your doctor, who performs a variety of tests, including Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test for cancer and the dreaded digital test. (For the later, be sure to find a thin doctor with thin fingers.)
Here is a list of some of the tests your doctor might conduct:
Your doctor is looking for prostate cancer:
Prostate Cancer in Elderly Men
50% of men between 70 and 80 years of age show histological (microscopic) evidence of malignancy.
A lifetime risk of 42% for developing histological evidence of prostate cancer in 50-year-old men has been calculated. In men at this age, however, the risk of developing clinically significant disease is only 9.5%, and the risk of dying from prostate cancer is only 2.9%.
So, if you reach 80, there is a very high probability you have some cancer cells in your prostate, but there also is a high probability you will die of something else.
Now let’s get to the real purpose of this post: Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), in short, enlarged prostate. You wake up at night and you need to pee, but only a little comes out. After a bit of a struggle, and a bit of success, you go back to bed, but you still need to pee.
This is bad, because leaving urine in your bladder, or backing up into your kidneys, can lead to infection.
Your doctor may prescribe a drug to alleviate the symptoms. But even with the drug, you still might struggle.
So here is your solution: Mild exercise.
Do something that will get your heart rate up a little. For instance, do you live in a 2-story house? Go downstairs and upstairs once. About 5-10 seconds later, when you feel your heart rate rise, you’ll be able to pee.
The 5-10 second delay is the amount of time needed for the chemicals caused by that bit of exercise to signal your heart and brain that additional oxygen is needed.
If you don’t have any stairs to walk, try doing just three or four pushups (from the ground or even a few against the wall), or three or four squats (holding on to something for balance). Or do some situps — anything that will get your heart rate up a little.
And I’m not talking about heavy exercise. No need to puff and pant. Just one flight of stairs, or a few pushups or squats should do it.
Chances are, your doctor doesn’t know about this. At least, that’s been my experience.
The doctors I’ve told seemed puzzled. When I’ve asked them why it happens, they’ve guessed that it’s some mechanical effect as in, “The exercise must loosen up the prostate.” (Heaven forbid that a doctor should say, “I have no idea, but I’ll find out.”)
I’m positive it’s not a mechanical effect. There’s that delay. Nothing happens before that 5-10 second delay, until your heart rate goes up. If it were mechanical, the effect would be immediate.
My personal theory, based on no information: The exercise signals blood to go to your muscles, which reduces the blood supply in your prostate, which temporarily shrinks your prostate enough to let the urine flow through.
Anyway, for whatever reason, it works. So, all you older gents, who have to wake up multiple times because you can’t empty your bladder, try the exercise solution.
And when it works for you, pass the info on to your cronies.
When they are grateful for the information, perhaps they also will listen to your revelations about Monetary Sovereignty and the Ten Steps to Prosperity.

The Ten Steps to Prosperity:
1. Eliminate FICA (Click here)
2. Federally funded free Medicare — parts A, B & D plus long term nursing care — for everyone (Click here)
3. Provide an Economic Bonus to every man, woman and child in America, and/or every state a per capita Economic Bonus. (Click here) Or institute a reverse income tax.
4. Federally funded, free education (including post-grad) for everyone. Click here
5. Salary for attending school (Click here)
6. Eliminate corporate taxes (Click here)
7. Increase the standard income tax deduction annually. (Refer to this.)
8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher, progressive tax rates on all their forms of income. (Click here)
9. Federal ownership of all banks (Click here and here)
10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99% (Click here)
Initiating The Ten Steps sequentially will add dollars to the economy, stimulate the economy, and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.-
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.
1. A growing economy requires a growing supply of dollars (GDP=Federal Spending + Non-federal Spending + Net Exports)
2. All deficit spending grows the supply of dollars
3. The limit to federal deficit spending is an inflation that cannot be cured with interest rate control.
4. The limit to non-federal deficit spending is the ability to borrow.
THE RECESSION CLOCK
Long term view:
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.
