P Page 2 Wednesday, November 27, 2013 The Adams County Record Theft by Any Other Name II - Your Money? Dear Editor, Money is a curious thing. It has no intrinsic value of its own, but it is cherished above nearly all other things. Especially by certain people whose lives seem to revolve around accumulating far more of it than anyone really needs. What is money, any- way? Where does itcome from? These topics get short shrift in our schools, and rarely make it into our public discuss, ions. Given the central role money plays in today's world, isn't that a bit.., odd? Most people believe that money iscreated by the Federal govern- ment. That's what the Constitution says, so it must be. Right? Wrong. Most of our money is created by banks. The biggest banks make up the Federal Reserve System, and they have special powers to create money. But your local bank also creates money when it makes a loan. Here's how. Suppose you take out a loan to buy a pickup truck. The bank .gives you a slip of paper with some numbers on it, and creates a bookkeeping entry to keep track of it all. You give the piece of paper to the truck dealer, who deposits it back into a bank - maybe even your bank! From there it works its way back to the origi- nal bookkeeping entry and *pooP. It's a wash for the banking system as a whole. As long as the banks work together, it's all good! They created money out of nothing. Didn't you and the dealer both treat the loan as money? But... now there's a debt. The "money" cre- ated through this process is always accompanied by a corresponding debt. Not to mention interest, which is going to provide the lender with income for years to come. Your income. On "money" that is mostly a bookkeeping entry from their point of view. Great work if you can get it! And speaking of work, you're .probably going to find yourself working for money rather than doing something you'd rather be doing until you've paid up. You've become a debt slave, Don't feel bad. You've got lots of company. And don't blame your local bank. As I'll demonstrate next time, virtually all of our money is debt-based. Your local bank is just playing by the rules. But debt-based money divides society into two classes, the few who can create it, and the many who must pay them to use it. And that's where things turn ugly. Cc,a, ;I - What difference 50 years Dear Editor, Question: Which "Radical Conservative" made the following state- ments? "The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God." '~ tax cut means higher family income and higher business profits and a bal- anced federal budget.... As the national income grows, the federal government will ultimately end up with more revenues. Prosperity is the real way to balance our budget. By'lowering tax rates, by increasing jobs and income, we can expand tax revenues and finally bring our budget into balance." "Every dollar released from Taxation that is spared or invested will create a new job and a new salary." "By calling attention to a well-regulated militia for the security of the Nation, and the right of each citi- zen to keep and bear arms, our founding fathers rec- ognized the essential- ly civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fear of governmen- makes tal tyranny, which gave rise to the 2nd amend- ment, will ever be a major danger to our Nation, the amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic military- civilian relationship, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the 2nd Amendment will always be important." Answer: John F. Kennedy. What a differ- ence 50 years makes! j C',e 5. /o, avd Deputies are out of control Dear Editor, This evening (Friday, November 22, 2013) I was asked if I could follow my daughter and our friend, who had lost his driving privilege just today, to please follow them to his home on Lappin Lane so his truckwould be home. Just after 6:00 PM we daughter) was driving.They then backed off and They should have easily a bit further zoomed up on seen that it was she and not my rear again with bright our friend driving. When lights glaring into my they (my daughter and friend) turned north onto Hwy 95, I pulled to the stop sign, and the deputies had disappeared from the line of traffic they had been in, and they wound up vehide. This was repeated over and over again. It was so frightening and blinding that I nearly hit a small dog in front of the Paradis home. This continued until I reached Tom Hill's barn left my home on Exeter, directly behind me. They with me following her. As followed me, as I turned on she got to the corner of 4th Avenue (NAPA) and US Hwy 95, two deputies (Green and Merritt) in the newest sheriff's vehicle passed the intersection, and I witnessed the deputy on the passenger side look and see the truck she (my Lappin Lane they turned on Lappin Lane. I knew it was them, so was being very cautious of my speed. They initially fell behind a bit, then suddenly zoomed up behind me with their lights on bright, It was blinding and frightening. where they then turned around and left. In just a few days I will be 62 years old, and this incident made me shake so badly I was nearly unable to fill out the complaint I filed with the Sheriff's Department. My daughter filed a complaint also, as Continued she was fearful for me, not knowing why someone would do this to her mom. I am sure that all reading this letter would agree that this type of behavior is totally unacceptable, dangerous, and I must ask the sheriff's department, "Would you have behaved this way if your mom had been in the car?" Certainly not. They are bullies and full of intimidation and I will not let this slip by without mention. I believe, withouta doubt, that these two immature deputies didn't think that I knew that their truck was an Adams County Sheriff's vehicle, had I not seen them turn around I would not have known. I pray that all reading this letter will be cautious driving after dark; we have an out of control law enforcement division in this county. Be careful everyone; you could be next. C/a~d;a 7"-/7o/,~a~ C,:,a,,m;/ Sllooting Grosbeaks is wrong Dear Editor, On my last visit to Council, I saw a couple shooting out their back door at birds now consid- ered an endangered spe- cies! The Evening Grosbeak is a pest when too many are in the yard, but their rarity in the wild has put them on the list of endangered spe- cies. In all my many trips into the woods-for hunting or hiking, I only once saw one in Adams County, but these people I visited were tired of their antics and shooting at them. Forest Service wants only non-motorized use Dear Editor, A good friend of mine went to the U.S.ES. office in New Meadows and asked the ranger how come there were no loop trails for ATV's like there are for motorcycles. She told him if he could find one she wanted to see it and ride on it. We found one 35 miles long, using old roads, so we went and advised her, she said she would look at it with us, we said we are both retired and could go anytime, just call one of us. This was TWO riding seasons ago, and nothing was ever done except place a locked gate on one of those roads. To me this says people who cannot walk, for whatever reason, under current management plans, are not supposed to enjoy the forests except where the USFS says they can, just pay their taxes so the non-motorized can enjoy the whole forest. To "prove a point, the USFS is closing roads, which have not seen motorized traffic for 50 years, which could be used for ATV trails, but no, they would rather oblit- erate them, :reating for- est personnel jobs and a place for invasive weeds to grow that cannot be treat- ed, which they will blame somebody else for starting.
