OUT SMART THE MONEY MAFIA!!! The Capitalist system has been built CROOKED to suit rich, corrupt, greedy men who program you to accept HOW THEY SHAPED IT. With our economy built that way, they can more easily suck the marrow out of the lowly workers' bones. You trusted legislators, banks, politicians and governmental systems that only built for themselves, stashed in their own pockets. They posed as your rescuer but really they just hooked you into being perpetually broke. Why? Cuz MASSAH and the factory wants the slave's nose just barely out of water so they can hire you for peanuts and then do the same to your children. Be the WILY COYOTE who knows how to escape their clutches, survive on trickle down.9) EDUCATE & CONVERT YOUR FRIENDS but do it GENTLY. I'll show you what I mean.
1.) LEARN GUERILLA CAPITALISM. It's a simple discipline based on independence, wily coyote knowledge, a life of simplicity and frugal modes of being. There are some 'just invented' NEW PATHS in MONEY MANAGEMENT that you need to know.
2.) AVOID ILLNESS AND DOCTORS. (they go hand in hand.) Master the art of Holism 101. Read up at this website on the researches of the finest, Hollywood and New York holistic healers, dieticians. You will rejuvenate your family members, save a million bucks on doctors, surgery, hospitals, medicines, pharmaceutical dependence, mortuary bills, Life insurance, you will sidestep HMO's, and you will dodge doctor inspired murder and you will save on food, too. GLUTTONY is the number one killer. The next biggest killers are on that list.
3.) PARTLY at least, HOME SCHOOL - Use the system for everything it gives you. The miserable PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM is good basic book l'arning but supplement it with the stuff kids only get in Posh Private Schools. See to the important features of your children's education, yourself. This starts in the crib. While your children are infants, there are interesting things that you can do which will increase baby's IQ. Teach the TEEN to avoid brain-frying time wasters, and bad habits. . Research the books kids need, googling around finding the truth telling books. Try JOY HAKIM for history books, the set of ten volumes. Get all those used books online. If a child is exposed to the best writers, film makers, philosophers, thinkers, homebuilders, landscapers, he will by age 18 have passions. He will leap into working at something he loves, not just be a wage slave. The people who love their unique work end up being multi-millionaires.
COLLEGE: NEVER let your kid work on the books as when he goes for that COLLEGE education, they won't give him grants. Work offbooks, pay no taxes at all, kids. Then go for huge grants. Stay away from STUDENT LOANS. They ruin many a marriage. If you belong to all kinds of special interests clubs in High School and run for president, you will get scholarships too. The system has used your parents and grandparents for centuries, now it's time to USE THE SYSTEM. Achieve 'gitback.'
4.) SHARE THE HOME. Why should Mom Dad and the four kids have this quasi "family divorce" when the kids near the end of their teens and everyone splits to the five winds and end up giving five landlords five rents? That is totally MONEY DOWN THE DRAIN. Be nice to each other and everyone sleep at home, except when you fool around at the sweetie's apartment. And don't rag on each other's privacy related to sweethearts, or curfews. Romance is only good from about age 16 to 30. Live and let live. Don't ask; don't tell.
START EARLY SHARING THE HOME- Get a foster child. State pays you a huge amount and you can invest that surplus cash. Second, rent the garage office to a college student and Dad can just put his PC on top of one of the bedroom bureaus, use bottom drawer as a foot rest, top drawer for keyboard. That's $450 a month you can put right into VIETNAMESE OIL STOCKS
5.) SHARE the WEALTH. Mom and Dad own a valuable home. They paid 100k and now it's worth three times that. In their lifetime, they should consider using its increasing value and cash clout to buy the kids their first property. As soon as a kid gets a job and has W-2s, credit, a bank account, buy him his first property, a condo or if there are three friends, young and with first jobs, buy a four unit building.
What keeps parents from doing this? Fear of not having money at the end, distrust of the kids makes parents hog the house, throw the kids out which is like saying "I'm alright Jack, screw you." Lending a kid a downpayment here and there gets the kid into the only part of the economy you can Trust. You can rely on the fact that a home will triple in value in a few years. Helping the kids with loans, co-signing and such assures a MINIMUM of usurious and quite nasty REAL ESTATE LOANS. A mother, when widowed, leaves the house to the kids. No reverse mortgages. The kids inherit a 300,000 paid off home and can buy a second piece of property off it and later another two. Two older children can buy fixer-upper houses off that one house. Then, wait a few yrs for prices to surge on the three homes and the other younger children can be given DOWN payments.
6.) Share the car- Why should one person drive a Lexus, and everyone else want posh, new, Hondas and Toyotas? Drive vintage heaps, all of you. They're classy and smart. No worries about bumped fenders as who cares? No insurance req'd. Just liability. The kids can share the old 83 Honda Civic as they all go to same school.
MOM does NOT need a car to get to work, there's the bus or..Mom could analyze -- does her job really give her anything when she has no time to sew, cook, garden which would make Keep her young, make all the family's life opulent and save money? Why this penchant for outside work when she thusly is forced to insure a car and drive it? Quit the job, Mom. You really only need a couple of twenty year old Toyotas or Nissans. MAINTAIN THEM, they'll last 400,000 miles. All except a Ford. Everything on a FORD dies at l00k.Today's newspaper had an article about a dozen people in our area who kept their cars for 400,000 miles, so far. All said regular oil changes, plug cleaning was required. YES, PLUG cleaning. Clean the points, don't buy new. Learn to do a tune-up yourself.
How can we get this
damn article off the
7.) SHARE THE CHORES - WHo needs to pay a dog groomer? Put the cash you save in a piggy bank. After all, the dog trusts your daughter enough to have a vigorous flea bath at her hands. Who needs a gardener? MOWING is exercise, skip the costly Gyms. However, bottom line? Science tells us that Lawn is a costly waste. Takes more water than any garden. Turn the lawn upside down, divot by divot, rot it into compost for your vegie garden/ orchard, situated front and back of the house. The kids can do it with Mom guiding. THE FRUGAL GARDENER will find seeds and cuttings up and down the street. Most expensive fix is going to be Plumbers. Shun them. The Library has all those do-it-yourself Life Magazine Plumbing books. Check one out. A thermostat on a water heater blows every few years flooding the house. Easy to replace. The Water Heater often springs a leak. Replacing that big container isn't rocket science.. Have your 13 year old son unplug it then replace it. Leash Train the dog to heel by yourself? "Heel' and 'sit' aren't brain surgery even for a pooch. Home needs a remodel? Rent a sander, finish your own floors and escape costly carpeting. Buy garage sale area carpets. STUDY FRUGAL LIVING. Ladies, get together on weekends and clean your own home. SHUN costly servants. Take the money you save and buy vintage cotton fabric at garage sales and make thosecute frocks. Get the sweaters at garage sales.
8.) ENJOY THE REALLY GOOD LIFE. That nearby beach town is just as charming as Provence or Italy. Dollar's so weak now (1.39 dollars make a EURO) that Paris would break the bank! Use Craigs list to find a rental in nearby beach port a season ahead of time, as a beach cottage rental is way cheaper than a hotel and you will have a kitchen and a TV set for nightime entertainment. Two families can fit in it so you can really save money. All you need is to get some garage sale fishing rods and reels, and when you get there, catch your own dinners. Dig Clams at low tide. This stuff really out-delights the priciest pension on the Mediterrenean where a dinner for ONE is 50$ But someone programmed you to think it had to be FRANCE. WRONNNNNG!
I sent the above file out to my reader's list (write me at astrology at earthlink.net to get on that list. You get articles the day they're written.) And guess what? I got an angry letter back from a 65 year old close friend of mine, a New England widow who was TOO faint of heart TO HEAR THIS! This close friend probably didn't read it, just saw the bold headline MONEY MAFIA and the graphic of the fat crook and she shot back an email. "You know how sensitive I am. If the message isn't in Zen format, my nervous system can't take 'it'. Anita! Note those negative words: crooked, mafia, capitalist, guerilla, illness. Please don't send this type message to me. PLEASE DON'T SEND ME NEGATIVE WORDS. THANK YOU."
I wrote her back: "you are a healthy citizen and can very easily listen to the reality which 99% of the people alive in your city suffer and go thru daily. If you ask me, though you didn't, THE CURE FOR being 'faint of heart,' is to tell God to make you aware of the reality so that you can fix it. IN THIS LIFETIME, stand up for the FIX. The solution. Don't lie down and be faint and avert your eyes.
THE ENTIRE POPULATION of the US of A suffers the kind of vicious exploitation by the money mafia. I don't mean MAFIA crooks in the drug industry I mean government, cops, IRS, colleges, gov agencies, military but the gov/cia is in the drug industry, so they're major mafia and the pharmaceutical companies overselling us thru 'bought' doctors are another kind of mafia." Drugging our children! Medicating us into stupidity and death.
I don't know about the medicating part personally as I stay away from doctors, (as per the FILE recommending HOLISM) but I do know about education, raising kids. I was on the bottom of society, a single mother with four babies, THE CHILDREN IN YOUR CITY cannot make aliving except flipping burgers so they join the army. They can't go to college. It's 15k a yr to study there. They cannot park at a university for less than l0$ a day. They cannot park on street for getting ticketed if they don't put a buck in every hour. They cannot get a scholarship or subsidized education. Few qualify. They cannot get health care. Eyeglasses, dentistry. Clinton gutted welfare which would have given MED-I-Care to poor children. If they are lucky enough to buy a clunker car, insure it (thousand a year), they are hit with all kinds of licensing and penalties by the city for parking, minor traffic infractions and they don't cost hundreds they are costing thousands. These are people who are eating ramen as they can't afford food. You are a healthy woman. YOU CAN take listening to what's going on. They cannot drive a car without $l000 a yr insurance. That is twice what they spend eating in a year.
As for SENSITIVITY, Read Bertold Brecht's poem on SENSITIVE PEOPLE LIKE YOU He was Germany's greatest liberal, mystical, sensitive, poet/playwright.
To Those Born LaterI . Truly, I live in dark times
Naive words are dangerous. To have an unwrinkled brow bespeaks
insensitivity. One who laughs just hasn't received the dreadful news.
What are these time when a chat about trees is almost a crime because it
incorporates silence about so many evil deeds! Is the one who walks calmly
along the road out of reach now for his friends who are in trouble?
It is true: I am just earning my living but believe me: that's just
accidental. Nothing of what I do entitles me to eat my fill. I was saved by
accident. (Once my luck runs out, I am lost.)
They tell me: you just eat and drink! Be glad of what you have! But how can
I eat and drink if what I eat I take away from the those who hunger, and My
glass of water is what's lacking for the one who is dying of thirst? And
still I eat and drink.
I would like to be wise, too. The old books say what's wise: To keep away
from the struggles of the world and to spend the short time without fear
Also, to live without violence repay evil with good not to fulfill your
longings, but to forget --is what is said to be wise.
All that I cannot do.
Truly, I live in dark times!
II To the cities I came at the time of chaos
when there was hunger.
Among the people I came at the time of rebellion
and I rebelled with them.
Thus passed the time
that was given to me on earth.
I ate my food between battles
I slept among murderers
I loved heedlessly
And I watched nature without patience
Thus passed my time
that was given to me on earth.
The roads lead to the morass of my times
Language betrayed me to the butcher.
I was able to do so little. But the rulers
would sit more safely without me, that I hoped.
Thus passed my time
that was given to me on earth.
Strength was limited. The goal
was far away
It was clearly visible, even though for me
Thus passed my time
that was given to me on earth.
III. You who will emerge on the surface of the floodwater
in which we drowned
when you speak of our weaknesses
the dark times
whom you escaped.
Walking as we were, changing countries more often than our shoes,
through the wars of classes, desparate
where there was only injustice and no rebellion.
Yet we know:
Hatred of baseness too
contorts our features.
Anger about injustice too
makes the voice hoarse. Oh we
who wanted to prepare the ground for friendliness
were ourselves unable to be friendly.
But you, when the time comes when a human being is a helper to human beings
commemorate us leniently.
It is the 'artistic license' of Brecht to allege that HE was an insensitive, absorbed in Maya, when if you read of his life, he was not. He was an anti-war saint but he didn't let Hitler kill
him. THE VERY NIGHT that HITLER BURNED DOWN his own WHITE HOUSE, the
REICHTAG, and alleged that the COMMUNISTS did it.....the next day Bertold
Brecht left Germany as he was a known leftist. So he wasn't so mystical that he was suicidal. He lived all over Europe then came to L.A. where his other german pals were doing well in the film industry. I think he'd be the best central character in a play. Or film.
So I sent the poem off and I waited for an answer but as she's vegan on a diet, goes to bed at 8pm, as she drinks wine with dinner & I think she'd gone to sleep..
Now an aside about this pal. She's not a reader or literary but she's smart and she did things right. She followed the prime ADVICE for a healthy family by giving huge bucks to her BOY CHILD from the first marriage (a poor husband) so though the boy was not part of her second marriage, he was taken care of. He was given a real starter kit in life: an acre sized farm home property. A fixer upper but charming. She built his pool when he requested one, bought him a new truck. With such a starter kit, he can now get an education, drive a truck, insured, marry and he doesn't even have to go in the army. My friend was smart. So smart that second time around, she'd married a man worth 800 million bucks and she nickle and dimed that cash out of her lunch money to do it. But 99% of the people don't marry that well and they need to get smart. THEY SUFFER the lacks of that security. My article said that PARENTS SHOULD PUT the down on the condo so kid can enter into real estate. MOST parents are not that generous. Also, where in the rulebook does it say parents should buy kids condos? It doesn't. It's not in the local tradition but it should be. IN PERILOUS times, where entire continents at the poles are melting, where wheat just doubled in price in one year, 4$ to 9$, in these tsunami recessionary stagflationary times, our kids need a lifesaver and a leg up.
And we need to steer clear of the MONEY MAFIA as much as we can. We need to use the internet, the keyboard and the underground, pursue guerilla capitalism and read more Bertold Brecht. And we need to eduate and convert our friends to being SENSITIVE to grim realities without flinching.
