Designated member of Appraisal Institute (MAI), 1974. Employed with Western Life Insurance Company, 1968 – 71; Iowa Securities Company, 1971 – 73; American Appraisal Company, 1974 – 81.

Some 6 million citizens of Yemen are starving and have no bit money to purchase food and shelter. Some 800,000 refugees are seeking asylum in Europe from hunger and starvation as a result of conflicts in the Middle East. China’s bit currency called the Yuan or Renminbi is crashing with losses in the trillions in market value. All global stock markets are now starting their decent into the abyss of darkness. Yet, Americans continue to eat, drink, and party. The ‘music’ continues and the crowd desires more! Watch our politicians as they party from venue to venue as our planet descends into the abyss. Does any of this make any common sense?

800,000 seeking asylum in Germany, Sweden, France, England, and the European Union!

Our politicians and most Americans seem totally oblivious to real events on this planet. Living in the ‘now’ is the mindset of most Americans and our politicians. Let’s all ignore the hole in the Titanic’s bow as we party on the upper deck. The ship has not sunk yet so why think about the leak. Why worry until the problem hits our immediate venue! Is this the mindset which I witness today? I think so! The vast majority of thinking people live in the ‘now’ and ignore any problems which are emerging or developing (until the problem hits their immediate venue)! Is this human nature? I think so!

We all seem to live in the NOW…or the now past or the now future! This appears to be human nature!

As problems grow and multiply the mindset of the many is ignorance and avoidance! Could there be a real problem developing? Is our financial system a ‘house of collapsing cards’? Are we living within our ‘imagination’ without recognizing the events in our material world? Is our money a mere unit of imagination (nothing and nowhere)? What is the mindset of most thinking people? The words of most investors is: what is the stock market doing now! Are the ‘numbers’ inflating or deflating? Is my bit account growing or declining? All appears good if my bit accounts are increasing! This appears to be the mindset of the many!

Problems are not mine (until the ‘water’ gets up to my nostrils)! The mindset of the many (it seems)!

Those in control of the system (our Central Bankers) desire that the ‘music’ of bit stimulus continue and that consumers spend, spend, spend their bit money. It’s all about spending ‘numbers’ and one’s imaginary concepts of fantasy wealth. Fantasy wealth consists of ‘numbers’ which do not exist! I desire more of this fantasy wealth in my bit financial accounts so as to ‘feel’ confident! Trump said recently that he was offered $5,000,000 from a potential bit donor. What is five million today? Can I borrow this ‘number’ (bits and bytes) and give it to Trump? We live with ‘numbers’ as our fantasy money! Few discern the nature of our money! Gold and silver have been abandoned by the many!

Gold and silver (abandoned)! Fantasy money works for now!

Faith in our leaders has been our MO here in America. Faith in our funny money has been our MO within economics. Faith in the rhetoric and charisma of select leaders seems to be our MO. Faith based on ‘hope’ and ‘change’ and upon fantasies of the mind seem to be the MO of most Americans. Americans seem to live in the ‘now’ and assume that ‘faith’ and ‘hope’ will create continuing abundance, freedom, and prosperity!  We now look forward to new ‘hope’ and new fantasies from some 21 politicians who desire to RULE this planet. This MO will likely continue until it ends!

Is this the reality which we experience? Check out:!

The music keeps playing and the volume tends to increase! Few want to stop the financial music! HOPE and CHANGE is the meme of our politicians and our leaders. Americans like this MO (at least for the moment). Yes, we all live in the NOW and the ‘now’ creates our reality. Right NOW all is good! Right NOW I do not see the hole in the bow or the water gushing in through the hole! The music must continue until the leak becomes evident to the many! Keep the party going! This seems to be the MO of most Americans. Our politicians play upon this MO and it works for ‘now’! That is my sense! Think for yourself! I am:

P.S. Wisdom for today: Life is lived in the NOW and reality is successive moments of NOW! The ‘future’ and the ‘past’ are fantasies of the NOW mind! Right NOW all is good!
