Inclement Conditions

…..and life goes on – Sunday, December 29, 2013 (One Month to my 71st year on Earth)

(“……and, just what is my money really worth?” ~a concerned consumer)

 

What is money anyway? Simply put, it’s printed paper declaring itself to be of value. The printed paper indicates it’s a “Bearer” instrument of the specified value, but there is no guarantee of that value, not beyond that of a piece of paper partially covered with inks.

 

A Producer puts a numeric value on a product. Market forces prevail and paper is traded for goods. In truth, Sellers (desire) wish to maximize that numeric value. Supply and Demand rule the transaction between Buyer and Seller.

This is, at best (agreed on by dominant Governments), a transient mutual trust. There is no guarantee the perceived value of your money will not fall to zero in the next minute. None!

 

Have faith my Sisters and Brothers, for without that attribute the paper in your wallet is all you will have to eat. If Sellers refuse to accept your paper money, you will be left with nothing, i.e. unless you grow-it, make-it, etc. you will go without. Ah, that’s where the notion, “…God helps those who help themselves” comes in. Please take notice, within this simple statement, there is no mention of a Government stepping in for God, and truth-be-told, that’s a wee-bit arrogant.

 

I cannot help myself. Actually, Progressives leave themselves bare for the following observation: For some reason, after having been elected, Politicians (especially Democrats) begin to believe they are better than the Citizenry, and therefore know better than most of the Electorate. By keeping a separation of Church and State, Politicians are free to say your Freedoms are a product of Government, to be granted, and/or, taken by the Government and their unelected Bureaucrats.
