IT'S NOW FEBRUARY AND THE BATTLE CONTINUES.  THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN SWORN IN WHETHER THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO BE IN POWER OR NOT AND THOSE OF US THAT WANT A TRUE CONSERVATIVE IN THE OVAL OFFICE HAVE TO KEEP PRESSING ON UNTIL THAT HAPPENS. THE NEXT BIG ELECTIONS ARE THE MID-TERMS IN NOVEMBER 2014.  WE MUST FIND AND SUPPORT CANDIDATES THAT WE BELIEVE WILL TRULY SERVE 'WE THE PEOPLE!"  MICHELE BACHMANN HAS FOUNDED MICHELE PAC IN THIS REGARD.  THIS IS A PART OF HER RECENT ANNOUNCEMENT:
 
Michele PAC only supports those candidates that make an unwavering commitment -- in words and in action -- to the principles of freedom, including:
  • Limited government;
  • Fiscal restraint and accountability;
  • Low taxation;
  • Respect for the sanctity of life; and
  • Ardent support for traditional family values.
 
JUST THIS WEEK, THE HIGHLY RESPECTED HERITAGE ACTION FOR AMERICA ANNOUNCED 29 MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WHO HAD ACHIEVED "SENTINEL STATUS" BY WORKING DAY IN AND DAY OUT FOR OUR SHARED CONSERVATIVE VALUES. THE LIST INCLUDES SIX (6) IN THE SENATE AND TWENTY-THREE (23) IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES INCLUDING HERSELF.  SOUNDS LIKE MICHELE AND THE HERITAGE GROUP ARE ON THE RIGHT PATH.  LET'S HELP THEM INCREASE THEIR NUMBERS IN CONGRESS;
 
THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR'S BUREAU OF LABOR STATISTICS REPORTED THAT TOTAL NONFARM PAYROLL EMPLOYMENT INCREASED BY 157,000 IN JANUARY AND THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE ROSE TO 7.9%.  THE INCREASE IN JOBS IS STILL WEAK AND THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS GOING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION.
 
IN LIGHT OF THOSE NUMBERS, CAN ANYONE UNDERSTAND NEW YORK TIMES COLUMNIST AND ECONOMIST, PAUL KRUGMAN AND HIS VIEWS ON THE ECONOMY.  HE RECENTLY GAVE AN INTERVIEW AND SAID THAT MORE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SPENDING IS NEEDED RATHER THAN LESS.  HE CLAIMS THAT THE MAIN PROBLEM WITH THE ECONOMY IS UNEMPLOYMENT WITH ALMOST 4 MILLION AMERICANS OUT OF WORK FOR MORE THAN A YEAR. EVEN SO, WHAT HAS ALL THIS STIMULUS SPENDING DONE TO RECTIFY THIS?  UNEMPLOYMENT IS GOING UP AND THE DEBT IS NOW APPROACHING 17 TRILLION.  HE NOTED THAT WE CAN PRINT OUR MONEY SO WE CAN'T RUN OUT.  WELL WHY DOES THE GOVERNMENT NEED TO TAX US  AS THEY SHOULD JUST BE ABLE TO KEEP PRINTING THE MONEY TO PAY THE BILLS. HE ALSO CLAIMS WE HAVE SLASHED GOVERNMENT SPENDING, BUT YET THE DEFICTS CONTINUE AND THE DEBT RISES HIGHER.  HIS POINTS JUST DON'T RING TRUE;
 
THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA ARE WAVERING ON THEIR LONGSTANDING VIEW THAT HOMOSEXUALITY WILL NOT BE TOLERATED IN THEIR ORGANIZATION.  THEIR BOARD IS SCHEDULED TO MEET SOON AND MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT.  AMERICANS WHO DO NOT WANT THEM TO CHANGE THEIR POLICY NEED TO LET THEIR VOICES BE HEARD. CALL, E-MAIL, WRITE, FAX OR WHATEVER, BUT TAKE ACTION ON THIS IMPORTANT MATTER;
 
APPLE COMPUTER IS NOW THE LEADING U. S. PHONE SELLER SURPASSING SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS OF KOREA, THE WORLD LEADER;
 
EARNINGS SEASON IS STILL UNDERWAY AND WE WILL CONTINUE 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;
 
GOLD AND SILVER SEEM TO BE IN A TIGHT TRADING RANGE. IT LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE WAITING FOR SOME NEWS TO HEAD THEM IN ONE DIRECTION OR THE OTHER. MANY ANALYSTS ARE STILL HOLDING TO HIGHER PRICE FORECASTS IN 2013, WITH $2,000.00 GOLD IN MANY OF THEIR PREDICTIONS;
 
 
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.
