Mike Krieger On Why 2011 Is Not 2008 – Why It Is Much Worse – And On Dow-Gold Parity

If we are to have another contest in the near future of our national existence, I predict that the dividing line will not be Mason and Dixon’s but between patriotism and intelligence on the one side, and superstition, ambition and ignorance on the other.

Mubarak has been an ally of ours in a number of things. And he’s been very responsible on, relative to geopolitical interest in the region, the Middle East peace efforts; the actions Egypt has taken relative to normalizing relationship with – with Israel. … I would not refer to him as a dictator.
– United States Vice President Joe Biden
Stuck in a Time Capsule
I remember as a kid on several occasion putting together a time capsule as part of a school project. I am sure many of you reading this have done a similar thing at some point. The concept is simple and elegant. The group involved in creating the time capsule picks various things from their current society or culture that they feel is representative of the environment at the time and then they bury these items so that future generations can get a glimpse of what life was like for people in a prior time. The reason humans have a desire to perform acts such as this is because our collective consciousness understands how much things change over time. Empires rise and fall, major belief systems dominate and then become discredited, broad concepts of what is considered acceptable human behavior with respect to our fellow human beings also change and vary within different cultures over time. Everyone knows the saying “nothing is certain except death and taxes.” Actually this is garbage. Taxes may be certain in the current society we live in but there is nothing eternal about taxes. It is entirely a human creation. I would replace taxes with the word change (not Obama change, real change). From my perspective the one thing in addition to death that is certain in humanity’s existence is change. Volatile, massive change. What confuses people is that this change happens very suddenly and seemingly out of nowhere to those only paying attention to the establishment parrots that assure you all is stable and ok because they are the elites and they want things to stay the same. They want that giant boot stamped firmly on your face forever.
