  1. In my opinion it is most likely that Global Warming is real, but that its causes are primarily natural. Critics will now probably say that I am just of this opinion because it is convenient to blame it on the earth instead of blaming it on humans(including myself). A case could be made that I do indeed enjoy incandescent light bulbs over flourescent light bulbs. But aside from that it is vice versa – it is convernient to think that the earth can be so easily reinvigorated/saved like the anthropogenic global warming proponents proclaim. Just raise taxes, mandate carbon trading, drive smaller businesses out of work with more bureaucracy, and everything will be fine? Isn’t it much more uncomfortable to believe that you have no real control over your destiny in this regard? That your life is dependent on the uncontrollable forces of nature? Isn’t this very inconvenient? http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/20...rs-warming.html “In 2005 data from NASA's Mars Global Surveyor and Odyssey missions revealed that the carbon dioxide "ice caps" near Mars's south pole had been diminishing for three summers in a row. Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of space research at St. Petersburg's Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia, says the Mars data is evidence that the current global warming on Earth is being caused by changes in the sun. "The long-term increase in solar irradiance is heating both Earth and Mars," he said.” Aside from the sun, what is probably another huge contributor to global warming, is the earth itself! Many ice sheets are melting primarily because of geothermal activity! Also check the brilliant analogy “heating a pot of water on a stove instead of heating the air around the pot of water to get the pot of water boiling” near the end of this post: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/copenhage...-radiation.html “Professor Cliff Ollier, another geologist from the University of Western Australia, also said the environmental lobby have got it wrong on ice caps. He said the melting of ice sheets is caused by geothermal activity rather than global surface temperatures.” Last but not least I will present a quotation from an article by Amitakh Stanford, I got the inspiration to research and write this post because of this. I had never heard this perspective in the media clearly presented like that: http://www.flyingbuffaloes7.net/keluar8.html My question about whether carbon emissions cause higher temperatures is enough to have me ridiculed and mislabelled as a climate-warming denier by the “educated” scientists and by those who echo the carbon dogma. It is a known fact that many springs, creeks, streams and rivers are warmer than they were in past decades. Is it not much more reasonable to assume that the temperature increases in springs, creeks, streams and rivers are directly caused by geothermal conditions rather than indirectly caused by a warmer atmosphere? Water is more resistant to temperature changes than air is. It is quicker and easier to heat a pot of water on a stove than it is to heat the air around the pot of water and wait for it to increase the temperature of the water in the pot. In simple terms, the carbon dogma points to the warmer atmosphere as the main contributor to global warming. I propose that there is climate change, but that it is mainly caused by the sun and the Earth, and only marginally caused by the atmosphere. The sun is hotter, which is evidenced by increases in solar flares and other things. Since scientists cannot credibly argue that humans have polluted the Earth’s atmosphere so much that it has caused more solar flares and a hotter sun, for purposes of their carbon dogma, they ignore the hotter sun. Likewise, the same carbon dogma proponents ignore the fact that the Earth is getting hotter. Scientists are only looking at the hot air, which is the least significant factor in global warming, whilst ignoring the much more significant factors of a hotter sun and a hotter Earth. What kind of scientific equation would eliminate the most significant factors from it? One that is unsound and filled with hot air!
  2. Shut Down the Federal Reserve?

    You are misrepresenting what I said. Did I ever say anything about investors, about hedge funds? I am talking about the central banks and specifically about the FED. They have a government monopoly to create all the money they want and be SECRETIVE about it. Hey guys, if you like central bankers so much, then why not give me the government monopoly to create fiat money and force everybody through government power to take it? And at the same time I want secrecy about my activities like the FED has. So can I have that too?
  3. Shut Down the Federal Reserve?

    Did YOU ever audit the Federal Reserve and other Central Banks?
  4. Shut Down the Federal Reserve?

    Agree with you on focusing on attacking the traitors in America. Most Americans are indeed guilty. Sadly, us innocents get punished along with the Collectivists. Yes, the german "philosophers" did their "best" to bring the tyranny of the middle ages back. All hail to the king..uh..socialist dictator! But I do think you understood McFadden wrong. He didn't blame it on nations, he was talking about secretive European Banking Families like the Rothschilds. Of course, that is also unpopular, maybe even more unpopular that blaming it on foreign nations, as stuff like this gets labeled as an insane conspiracy theory.
  5. Shut Down the Federal Reserve?

    As a whole the Congress is allowed to legislate an audit of the Federal Reserve, but what I was referring to were single members like Ron Paul. Ron Paul is on the financial service committee and even he is not allowed to check their books! I agree with you to shut it down instead of giving it to politicians. Sadly, I also agree with you about the statist majority in America(as well as in every other nation on earth at the present time). Although the ideas of individualism do get a bit more popular the FED's probably not gonna be shut down like it should be, but will self-destruct.
  6. Shut Down the Federal Reserve?

    Are the fraud allegations from the article urging to Shut Down the Federal Reserve accurate? Why is there so little education about the Federal Reserve in the media, schools and universities? Why is the Government Accountability Office not allowed a full audit of the Federal Reserve? The position that something is very wrong with the Federal Reserve is even supported by some courageous Congressmen from both parties. If their accusations are unfounded, then why aren't the democratically elected Congressmen allowed to audit the Federal Reserve's alleged private ownership and selfish activities? The US Constitution in Article I, Section 8, Paragraph 5, states that Congress has the authority to "coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;". Why is the Federal Reserve so secretive? http://thomaspainereturns.net/posts/sdfr.html "The band aids will not help the economic crisis. There is a systemic problem. The Federal Reserve and all the central banks in the world that are designed on its model are defrauding the people of the world. There is no rational reason why the U.S. Congress cannot print its own currency. The Congress was intimidated, bribed and blackmailed into creating and maintaining the Federal Reserve Bank. The Federal Reserve was awarded a contract to manage the currency in America. The cost of that contract to the U.S. has been $10 trillion in national debt. To try to cover for the Federal Reserve's greedy fraud, many countries are being forced to pay into the Federal Reserve coffers to keep the world economy afloat. One of the ways they are being forced to pay is through devaluation of their currencies with respect to the U.S. dollar, which is a way of building up America at the expense of others in the world. All of the band-aid measures will fail. The problem is the Federal Reserve, which concept is founded upon debt-based currency and fraud. It must be closed down or it will continue to suck the resources of the U.S. with its currency management contract. The American government could do the Federal Reserve's job for virtually nothing, and save the U.S. taxpayers between $200 and $900 billion each year in interest off a debt that will never be paid off." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_McFadden "McFadden is also remembered for his criticism of the Federal Reserve, which he claimed was created and operated by European banking interests who conspired to economically control the United States. On June 10, 1932, McFadden made a 25-minute speech before the House of Representatives[2] , in which he accused the Federal Reserve of deliberately causing the Great Depression." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huey_Long "Long was a staunch opponent of the Federal Reserve Bank. Together with a group of Congressmen and Senators, Long believed the Federal Reserve's policies to be the true cause of the Great Depression. Long made speeches denouncing the large banking houses of Morgan and Rockefeller centered in New York which owned stock in the Federal Reserve System. He believed that they controlled the monetary system to their own benefit, instead of the general public's benefit." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rand_Paul "Paul opposes the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and the Federal Reserve's control of the nations money supply and interest rates. He wants to allow the free market to regulate interest rates, and supports congresses constitutional role of controlling the money supply. Paul endorses H.R. 1207, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, a bill introduced by Congressman Ron Paul mandating an audit of the Federal Reserve. Although Paul would abolish the Federal Reserve, he supports transparency and accountability of the semi-private institution. Additionally, Paul opposes inflation and supports "restoring the value of the dollar that has devalued by approximately 95% since the Federal Reserve's inception in 1913"." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Grayson "Grayson is a co-sponsor of the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009, which would provide addition provisions to audit the Federal Reserve, including removing several key exemptions."
