Jim Cook



Every once in a while I switch the TV channel from Fox to CNBC to see what the liberals are saying.  After listening awhile I get a deep sense of hopelessness and foreboding for our country.  The most important thing for the left is giving money to people.  They are happy to see the growth of food stamps, disability payments, housing subsidies, free healthcare and all the other welfare benefits.  They utterly fail to see the damage it is doing to the recipients.  Whole cities that once flourished have deteriorated into rotting eyesores populated with shambling hulks of chemically dependent drones.  These people are no longer employable.  They have become incompetent and helpless and the liberals can’t see that it’s their doing.

Just Be One Of The

LAST Trains To Leave Town

You don't have to be on the VERY last train out. Just be one ONE of the last trains out.

Have you notice how most of us procrastinate...we want to be the very last ones? Those who have read previous columns know I come from a 120-year-old railroad family. There is much common sense in railroading...a lot more than in government. Railroads can't print their own "money," legally, anyway.

When I was growing up in the days just before and after the advent of Amtrak, passenger trains in my little hometown would sometimes shut down in bad weather. Winter, I'm talking about.

The railroads would announce that this may be the last train before the line shut down, or there might be another one. Why gamble that there might be one more train out? Why not get on the one you KNOW is still in the clear.

Ted Butler writes about the manipulate of the prices of precious metals, especially silver. Gold prices are manipulated constantly; few would argue with that. In fact, the world's central banks and the International Monetary Fund almost brag how they will keep the price of gold down---but dumping tons of gold that were stolen---ah, taken, from the taxpaying pubic.

I think Mr. Butler is right; but I will tell you something I do know and it is printed almost daily in the newspapers.

The poliiticians and central bankers are MANIPULATING PAPER every day.

The Federal Reserve Bank manipulates paper, so-called interest rates, the volume of unbacked paper money and what have you.

This could go on for some time with such a gullible public.

I told an attorney, "You say the savings rate is down. The government does not even need your savings!"

"What?" he snapped. "That's right, they don't need you for anything. They can print up all of the paper money they want. It is unlimited."

He seemed shocked and speechless for ten seconds. "I never thought of that!"

And that is exactly when the corrupt Federal Reserve so-called Bank is doing.

Is this the last train out? Or can they fool us another time or two?

They are operating on STOLEN money. Money that was never earned....they have bailed out their corrupt campaign donors and other special interests.

Why would you truly care if you got out on the second to the last train out, or even the third train out?

Is it bragging rights, or what, that so many people want to tell you they were on the very last train?

If a hurricane is about to hit, would be like to brag about being the very last one out of town? Does that make you any smarter? Any more special? Or are truly the smartest people those who were among the first to leave? Think about that.
