What does it say on the back of your money? (OK, besides Where’s George now, or someone’s phone number). What you should be paying attention to is not what it says, but what it doesn’t say. It doesn’t say that the money you hold in your in hand is backed by gold. It used to. This was a huge reason why this country wanted to be independent to begin with. Fuck the whole throwing the tea in the harbor thing. More than anything they didn’t want the system that we have in place today. They wanted something backing our money, hence giving it value.

Take a closer look at the bill. It says Federal Reserve Note. Technically, you could go right ahead and wipe your ass with it, because there is nothing backing it but debt. It works like any other loan. You borrow the money, next thing you know you're in over your head in credit card and loan debt. The interest keeps growing.

In the case of our currency, the government is you, (the borrower about to get screwed), and the one lending out the loans is the Federal Reserve, owned by a small group of wealthy people who are about to get richer. (I mean, when you are loaning out money to the government of a superpower, you're set for life). They can choose to raise their interest rates whenever they want to. This causes more debt and makes the dollar to drop like a rock.

Kind of like it’s doing right now, since we are just about equal to Canada for the first time in almost 31 years. So much for playing Texas Hold Em in Canadian casinos with almost double the money. The Canadian currency is currently right around .988 for every 1.01 US dollar. That my friends, is insane.

And what amazing timing this has. Just when the push for the AMERO is getting going. If you just read AMERO, and said “The What?” I’m sure you’ve heard of the Euro, the currency used in many of the countries in Europe. Well, the US wants to do that with Canada and Mexico. Bush wants to send all the illegal immigrants back to Mexico, and build a God damn fence to separate us from them, but we going to have the same currency. Say what? I might not brilliant, but that just makes no sense. What does make sense is that it is no coincidence the dollar has been falling.

Check it out at the website: Let’s just say that there is a reason why The United Kingdom (aka England…you know Posh and Becks, Oasis, The Beatles,…that England) told the Euro to go to hell. They are still using the Pound system. Because there is another alternative. We don't need the AMERO, or the current Federal Reserve Note. The dollar needs to be backed up in silver and gold like in the good old days. Such will be the case with the Liberty dollar, which has surfaced as the solution to inflation. Check out the website.

It's also another thing that's written in our Constitution but is been ignored. Benny, Washington, Madison and the boys were pretty smart guys. Maybe we should stop letting our ignorant leaders ignore the things the Founders put down on paper, because they wrote it for a reason.

"No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility."

-US Constitution Article 1, Section 10, Clause 1.

In case of emergency, Bush makes new government.

I'm beginning this blog with the intent to uncover laws and news that the media has ignored. They have done so in order to write meaningless stories about the latest trends or which celebrity is currently in rehab. One of the first things I found was this little gem, that quite honestly scares the shit out of me.

Executive Directive 51
When it should have been covered in the news: May-June 2007
Top stories in the news at the time: Paris Hilton in jail, and back again.

Imagine for a moment that our country is attacked again. A bomb goes of at an airport, or another building is reduced to rubble. Imagine a natural disaster that causes chaos and massive casualties. A new Katrina, an earthquake or Tsunami can hit the US and suddenly we have an entirely new government in place, and we are at their mercy.
This isn't the beginning to a brilliant movie. Although for the record, I'm trademarking it right now. This is possible with Executive Directive 51, a secretive little order that slipped undetected past most of the media. Apparently, Paris Hilton's time spent away from her cell phone and credit card was more important at the time. Let me give you the lowdown on what this order does.

Like any of Bush's ideas it was meant to protect us. Supposedly. The thought process behind it was that in case of a disaster there would be an emergency plan in place. Sounds good right? Cut through to the fine print and this order is one step down from giving Bush his own dictatorship. It basically takes the power out of the other branches and rests it solely in the executive branch. But only in the event of a "catastrophic emergency." Which is what exactly?

The order defines it as this, "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions." Well, that's very specific. Thanks for clearing the up, George. Regardless of location? So if there is a strike at the toilet paper production plants in Taiwan and it affects or economy, we get a new government?

This is the part that gets to me. During one of these so called "anything events," An "Enduring Constitutional Government," comprising of a cooperative effort among the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the Federal Government," coordinated by the President of the United States, will take the place of the nation's regular government. An official designated by the Chief of Staff to the President will be in charge of this "continuity of government effort".

Say what? Did I just read that right? How about we put that one on a bumper sticker. In case of emergency, Bush makes new government. Tough shit America.

This goes against the Constitution itself which, last time I checked made all three branches of power EQUAL for a reason. But that was the old days when we stuck to the Constitution, and didn't throw out the insignificant details like Habeas Corpus. Who needs that one anyway? the order for yourself and tell a friend. Make a bumper sticker. Wear a pin. Bring it up the next time your a few beers in and having a political debate. But don't just shrug it off.
