Today the Federal Reserve set the stage for “beginning to normalize the stance of monetary policy” in 2015. Rates have been held at near 0 since 2008, I truly believe that this rate may be raised briefly but will never get close to past levels. The debt that the US has cannot afford for rates to raise, we would have to borrow more money to pay for the interest.
Right before the Thanksgiving day holiday, congress had to pass a 1.1 trillion dollar emergency bill to keep the government from shutting down. This is not the first time, we continue to service our obligations by printing more money or paying for debt with more debt.
Can someone please explain to me how a regular person with 10 maxed out credit cards, who has to borrow more money or open a new credit line, just to pay the interest on their already maxed out credit lines is any different then what the US government is currently doing? This is exactly what our government is doing now but at a level that is completely unimaginable…
I fear for the years ahead…
I am not a scientist, I am not a musician, I cannot sing, I cannot dance, but there are people in this world gifted with the abilities to do these things. Today a Ted Talks video was brought to my attention that involves the following: music, science, and cancer.
What do the three have in common? They can’t have anything in common, right? Please view the link to the video below.
This research is mind boggling and ground breaking!
My buddy, who is of Indian (India) decent got cancer of the lymph nodes at the age of 28 years old. He has lived in the US his entire life. What blew me away when I did some research is that this type of cancer really does not exist in India. What gives?
The American people believe in the easiest and fastest way out. Give me a pill that will cure me, but this video shows that the power to heal is right in front of use. Maybe there is an alternative to the synthetic “antidotes” we are told to believe is at the cutting edge of medicine. Maybe we should begin to think about what our environment and lifestyle brings upon use…..
just a view thoughts, maybe someone feels the same. i just know that it makes me feel better to be able to communicate my thoughts beyond my own mind.
Today, I received a link from my wonderful aunt. Some would call her a hippie/gypsy, but I would say that she is her own being and seeks to fulfill the meaning of life. She has helped me to explore new ways of thinking, and expanding from the traditions of western culture. I have myself struggle with what western society has laid out for all of us as the path to success and happiness….to go school, get good grades, go to college, get a good job, buy a house, get married, raise a family. Although this is still the path i am and want to follow i question especially the go to school and get a good job. I feel that we have become slaves to the system, there are stats that show that up to 80% of college graduates are not getting jobs and are moving home, or if they are lucky enough to find a job usually it is not what society has “promised” them.
Anyways, sorry for the ranting. I wanted to provide a link about expanding ones consciousness. I do not know entirely what to think about this but I definitely say that it has made me think, and question. Civilized society is such and young thing and I wonder if we have lost some of the true meaning of life. Enjoy the video. It is quite long and is only free to few until tomorrow. Link below:
