ONE NATION INDIVISIBLE...I DON'T THINK SO.
 
WE MAY STILL BE A NATION OF FIFTY STATES, BUT WE ARE DIVIDED IN EVERY WHICH WAY.  AND SINCE THIS ADMINISTRATION TOOK OFFICE IN 2009, IT IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE APPARENT.  IT HAS GOTTEN TO THE POINT WHERE YOU HEAR TALKS IN CERTAIN STATES OF SECESSION.  WHETHER WE ARE INTENTIONALLY BEING DIVIDED CAN BE DEBATED, BUT THE EVIDENCE IS CLEAR.  ON RACE, SEX, INCOME, AGE AND OTHER WAYS AMERICANS ARE NOT UNITED.  NOW GUN LAW PROPOSALS BEING PUSHED BY MANY IN GOVERNMENT WILL PIT THOSE THAT WANT THEM AGAINST THOSE THAT WANT TO PROTECT THEIR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS.  WE KNOW THAT WE WILL NEVER GET TO THE POINT ON THIS EARTH THAT WE ALL AGREE ON EVERYTHING, BUT I THINK IN THE PAST WE DISAGREED, BUT DID NOT BECOME DISAGREEABLE.  AT LEAST THE VAST MAJORITY DIDN'T.  TODAY THE CONTENTIOSNESS IS PALPABLE.  THE BLAME GAME IS SPREADING WHEN WE SHOULD BE RECONCILING OUR DIFFERENCES IN A CIVIL WAY.  A FUNCTION OF OUR GOVERNMENT IS TO INSURE DOMESTIC TRANQUILITY. ALSO, WE SHOULD ALWAYS REMEMBER WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE  'ONE NATION UNDER GOD'!
 
SPEAKING OF GUN CONTROL CHATTER...HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT YOU SELDOM HEAR REPORTING IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA ON THE NUMBER OF LIVES THAT WERE SAVED BY CITIZENS HAVING A GUN TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AND OTHERS WHO WERE ATTACKED BY DISTURBED INDIVIDUALS?  WE NEED TO ASK WHY!  ALSO, WHY DOES THE GOVERNMENT NOT KEEP STATISTICS ON THIS INFORMATION?
 
AN UPDATE ON PASTOR SCOTT LIVELY FROM HIS WEBSITE AT WWW.SCOTTLIVELY.NET REVEALS THAT HIS COURT CASE WAS HELD ON JANUARY 7, 2013 AT THE FEDERAL DISTRICT COURTHOUSE IN SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS.  THE PASTOR IS CAUTIOUSLY OPTIMISTIC THAT THE MOTION TO DISMISS THAT WAS FILED ON HIS BEHALF BY HIS TEAM OF LAWYERS, MOSTLY FROM LIBERTY COUNSEL, OFFERING THEIR SERVICES PRO BONO, WILL BE SUCCESSFUL.  LET'S KEEP SCOTT IN OUR PRAYERS AND CONSIDER DONATING TO HIS ALL-IMPORTANT MINISTRY;
 
BIG NEWS OUT OF THE EURO ZONE!  GERMANY, THE MOST FISCALLY SOUND OF THE ZONE NATIONS, HAS ANNOUNCED THAT IT WILL REPATRIATE ALL OF ITS GOLD HOLDINGS FROM ABROAD.  IT HAS SIZEABLE AMOUNTS IN FRANCE AND THE UNITED STATES AND NOW WANTS THEM BACK WITHIN ITS OWN BORDERS.  WHY?  COULD IT BE THAT IT NO LONGER HAS TRUST IN THOSE COUNTRIES WHERE THE GOLD WAS HELD?  WE ALL ARE AWARE THAT THE VENEZUELAN GOVERNMENT WITH HUGO CHAVEZ AS PRESIDENT CALLED BACK ALL ITS GOLD LAST AUGUST.  IT LOOKS LIKE THE NETHERLANDS IS ABOUT TO DO THE SAME.  ALL THESE ACTIONS ARE SIGNS WE SHOULD BE PAYING ATTENTION TO AS THEY COULD HAVE  A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT NOT ONLY ON GOLD BUT ALSO ON OUR INDIVIDUAL LIVES;
 
THE UNITED STATES MINT HAS SOLD A MASSIVE 3.9 MILLION OUNCES OF SILVER COINS IN THE FIRST FEW DAYS OF 2013, TRIPLE DECEMBER'S TOTAL. IT SEEMS THAT THE PAPER-TO-PHYSICAL CURRENCY ROTATION IS GATHERING PACE.  THAT CERTAINLY IS UNDERSTANABLE GIVEN THE MACHINATIONS OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK;
 
EARNINGS SEASON IS UNDERWAY AND WE WILL BE WATCHING THE REPORTS THAT COME IN FROM THE VARIOUS PUBLIC COMPANIES.  THIS INFORMATION WILL PROVIDE A MEASURE OF WHAT IS GOING ON IN CORPORATE AMERICA;
 
 

AS USUAL, IF TIME PERMITS, WE NEED TO CONTINUE DISCUSSING THE FOLLOWING:

PENSIONS - THEY NEED OUR ATTENTION.  MANY AMERICANS ARE RECEIVING THEM OR SOON WILL BE.  THE BABY BOOMERS ARE A LARGE GROUP IN THAT CATEGORY AND THEY NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT ACTIONS OR INACTION TO TAKE BOTH WITH ANY PRIVATE RETIREMENT PLANS THEY MAY HAVE OR EVEN WITH SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS AND STATE OR LOCAL GOVERNMENT PLANS.  ALSO, DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE SUPPLEMENTAL SECURITY INCOME FEATURE ADMINISTERED BY THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION? THE RULES KEEP CHANGING IN THESE AREAS AND IT WOULD BE SMART TO LEARN THEM;
 
THE FEDERAL RESERVE - WE HAVEN'T STOPPED LOOKING INTO THE INNER WORKINGS OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM AND WE WILL DELVE A LITTLE MORE INTO IT'S' BALANCE SHEET AND SEE IF WE CAN GLEAN THE FACTS REGARDING THIS INSTITUTION THAT HAS SUCH AN IMPACT ON OUR LIVES AND DETERMINE IF IT CAN BE ONE THAT TRULY SERVES THE PEOPLE OR SHOULD ANOTHER ACT OF CONGRESS BE PASSED TO END ITS' EXISTENCE. THIS CAN BE A TEDIOUS PROCESS, BUT WE MUST FOLLOW THE MONEY !;
 
BEFORE WE TACKLE THE FEDERAL SYSTEM HOWEVER IT MAY BE WORTHWHILE TO REVIEW WHAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING IN PRICHARD, ALABAMA WITH THEIR PENSION PLAN. I THINK THE LESSON HERE IS THAT WE SHOULD FIND A WAY TO TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN MONEY AND NOT RELY TOO MUCH ON OTHERS, ESPECIALLY IF THEIR ABILITIES HAVE NOT BEEN FULLY DETERMINED;
 
GOLD - A RECENT SURVEY SHOWS HOW GOLD DOES DURING TIMES OF TURMOIL.  FIND OUT THE DETAILS;
 
WE WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH MORE ON THE LIST OF THE 50 THINGS EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE COLLAPSE OF THE ECONOMY;
 
AND WE WILL KEEP YOU ABREAST OF ANY LATE-BREAKING DEVELOPMENTS IN THE STOCK AND COMMODITIES MARKETS, ESPECIALLY GOLD AND SILVER;
 
SOME THOUGHTS BY EXPERIENCED INDIVIDUALS IN THE WORLD OF MONEY MAY ALSO BE REVIEWED AND SOME AUDIO MAY BE PLAYED TO ROUND OUT THE SHOW.
