HOW TO FIX THE UNITED STATES ECONOMY AND AVOID DEPRESSION
BY FARLEY MALORRUS (Me)

In order to repair the severely damaged U.S. economy and World economy, the solution is rather simple. If a citizen is unemployed for 6 months, give him a TAX FREE CHECK for $10,000 to live on, pay his or her bills, and/or give them a chance to get reinstalled into the workforce.

If a citizen owes money on a home, is in foreclosure, or had a lot of credit card debt, give them $20,000 to $25,000 to catch up, and avoid the foreclosure.

By doing this, the BANKS, INSURANCE COMPANIES, and all corporations will benefit, as instead of giving the banks, corporations, and insurance companies Money, which the CITIZENS WOULD NEVER SEE; let the people have the money, to allow them to FUEL THE ECONOMY and pay the banks, insurance companies, and debtors, and in that way help THEM AVOID bankruptcy and default foreclosures.

I am stunned that our Government would choose to "Bail Out," the corporations, and NOT THE PEOPLE, when in truth if AIG is failing due to people not paying their bills, then IF THE PEOPLE ARE GIVEN MONEY on the basis they provide PROOF that they are not wasting the money, or gambling it, but PAYING THE MORTGAGES, CAR PAYMENTS, GROCERY BILLS, INSURANCE, and other things, in this way to support all the banks and corporations from 'the bottom up, not the top down.'

I for one, am not affected by the current economic slump as I owe no money, have no mortgages, own everything free and clear, and have all my savings in tax free, insured Municipal bonds, Gold, and Cash, in order to protect myself and my family.

I was shocked that the government was in such a hurry to bail out some corporations that have ripped off millions of Americans (like AIG who underpaid my Dad's life policy by $150,000) instead, of giving honest, hard working Americans the cash they need to survive, and FUEL THE ECONOMY.

Instead of writing something about what I would want in a relationship, I decided to 'open my mind,' and allow you to take a look at what is inside, as far as solving our greatest problems to day, the economy, and also the war.

The next thing of course would be for the government to stop spending on frivolous things, feeding an undeclared war, and start FUNDING things in AMERICA that would create jobs, repair infrastructure, and jumpstart the American Economy.

It's ONLY LOGICAL....Not looking for a debate, but if geniuses can't fix the economy, "THE CAR CAN'T RUN UNLESS YOU PUT GAS IN IT, NOT POUR GAS ON IT."

We could start by getting all of our money back from those companies that has it.
All those who took the bail out should now belong to the people of the USA..
Or they could give us back ALL of our money if they want to keep their companies from Foreclosure..
Forfeit the company and lose it to the bank "The People of the US." or pay back the money NOW.!!!

THEN give the money to the People after enough has been taken out to pay the countries Bills.

A country's economy is like a tree and how does a tree grow ?
Does a tree grow from the top down ?
Or, does a tree grow from the ground up ?
Do the birds who nest in the tree tops hold the tree up ?

The birds in the tree top, have convinced everyone that they are holding the tree up.
Parasites living in the tree have convinced everyone they are feeding the tree when in fact, they eat the life out of it.

You cure a sick tree by nourishing the roots, trimming dead branches, and killing the parasites which feed off the tree.
This is the only strategy which will work.

I finally posted something that got a positive response...Yes, I feel like the victim of a bank robbery, in that like "ROLLERBALL" the government discusses how to bail out CORPORATIONS and not people...

What happened to "Of the people, by the people, and for the people?"
It became "OF THE CORPORATIONS, BY THE CORPORATIONS, AND FOR THE CORPORATIONS."

I say the heck with the Corporations. LET'S GET BACK TO MOM AND POP SHOPS, and break up this bureaucratic monopoly as it is...

Ever heard of something called KARMA?
Well, if the officials don't intend to BANKRUPT THIS COUNTRY, they need to start DOLLING OUT SOME DOUGH TO CITIZENS who need it, who fought for this country, worked their buns off to survive, and now find themselves at the bottom of the American Dream. What every happened to good faith and trust?

Out the window..
Another thing, the stock market is nothing more than a big casino, or Pyramid scheme run by the corporations, and no one wins, when everyone that gets in 'at the bottom,' loses all they have...

Great post everyone, thank you!
GO CARDS.!

I do not think people should be rewarded for being unable to manage their lived and finances effectively.
My grandfather fought for this country on the front lines of battle, and expected nothing from the government other than his GI bill that enabled him to go to college to obtain a well-paying career.

Do people who DO pay their bills and manage their lives effectively get rewarded?
Or are just expected to cover the asses of those who dont.

how about if they passed a one time resolution this year that stated that everyone could have every penny they paid into federal income taxes in 08 back in an 09 tax return.
this would make me a very happy fish!

where do you think all those crooked employees who cooked the books at ENRON went? -they didn't just disappear -they merely went to work for other corporations doing the same thing.

Some outstanding views, thanks....I know that dead beats, and people who should never have gotten credit, mortgages, or jobs, are in trouble right now...but does anyone recall the saying called, "Family of Man?" If your own family messes up, do you lock them out in the cold?

Are we ready for BREAD LINES, and a homeless epidemic, in lieu of OUR TAX DOLLARS being given to Corporate America and the War Machine, instead of to Idiotic citizens who hadn't embraced responsibility in their lives, and should be punished for it?

No, SUCCESSFUL, or wealthy people NEED NOT BE REWARDED, but to all our American brothers and sisters who have fallen on hard times, PARTICULARLY LAY OFFS TO THOSE WHO HAVE HELD JOBS most of their lives....
How about a bail out for those, to just help FUEL THE ECONOMY which is just about to BREAK AND BUST any day now?

I don't think people realize that Americans, many Americans, have no money, are deep in debt, are about to be thrown out on the street, and I want to know where the compassion is here?

MY passion is NOT WITH CORPORATE AMERICA. IF we are to fix the economy we can give the downtrodden ONE CHANCE, ONE LIFELIFE to restore their hopeless lives, then if they fail, it's there problem, but give 800 billion to companies and ZERO TO AMERICAN CITIZENS who are paying for this? That is wrong. I'm sorry. I just don't agree with it. To me it's like pouring GAS ON THE CAR, instead of FILLING THE CARS GAS TANK..

I know some of you may take offense to this because you are stable, have money, and are not in debt, and when the economy recovers, YES, THEY TOO SHOULD BE REWARDED; but at the same time, millions of Americans are hurting, and can't even go from paycheck to paycheck.
Just my opinion, but if we don't do something, get ready for the suicide rate to skyrocket, starving citizens, riots perhaps, and LOTS AND LOTS of homeless.

I think as a nation we can bond together, and HELP THOSE WHO hadn't the sense to prepare for this time.NOTE: I DID NOT SAY TO BAIL OUT STUPID STOCKHOLDERS that trusted the stock market. It's bad enough people bought real estate at ridiculous prices at the end.....but no help for speculators in the market..

Everybody go grab a newspaper and tell me there are no jobs in there and i will vote to pass every stimulus package there is. If people live way above their paygrade then well you screwed up. Time to start selling crap and living in that paygrade or better yet live a bit below that paygrade and learn to save.

Yep, that about sums it all up for me.

Look people, it's simple.

The banks aren't to blame.

The Politicians aren't to blame.

The Fed isn't to blame.

You want to know who to blame?

LOOK IN THE FREAKING MIRROR!!!!!!!!!!!!

When greedy and stupid consumers go above and beyond what they can afford, then they are going to start losing things, and that is life.

I'm sorry you lost your house, but guess what, YOU ARE the idiot who signed up for the mortgage you couldn't afford.

I'm sorry you can't make the minimum payments on your credit card, but guess what, YOU ARE the idiot who maxed it out.

Those of us who had thought this out, understood the concept of an economic cycle, and new that life was not always going to be high on the hog, did exactly what we needed to do. We didn't over extend ourselves with stupid mortgages that we can't afford. We don't use credit cards, and we certainly don't max them out. We set aside our money, and we saved it just for situations like this, where times were tough.

And honestly, when it all comes to a head, I'm going to be sitting in my cozy house next to my wife watching one of our favorite movies while laughing at all the idiots who couldn't figure out there own contingency plans.

So instead of belly-aching and whining, go to the mirror, look in it, and start blaming the real person who put you in that situation. Then pick yourself up by your boot straps and find a way to get through it.

Keep our businesses in America..not overseas. Our Government officials that throw all these lavish parties at taxpayer's expense..cut out all the crap and quit expecting us taxpayers to bail them out when they get in trouble. Keep a more watchful eye on all these freeloaders on foodstamps and welfare..there are so many who don't need it at all. I know there are some who do...but there are soooo many who don't!! There are so many things that needs to be done different.

THE reason why I am here, is because I don't have to work..I have a portfolio of TAX FREE, INSURED, Municipal Bonds that pay a sizeable monthly income, since I was a little kid......I invested in those because "Mom" and "Dad" suggested it. Gee, thanks Mom..

I never did like the rat race, and after 20 years in Show business, and 10 years in the corporate world up to a CEO, I banked most of what I earned and bought bonds, as I felt the U.S. Economy was designed as a Pyramid scheme and wanted out of it, so I sold my Condo for double what I paid in 05, before the fall, bought a nice house by a lake for about 168k, and live off the interest...The rest of my life is based on study, research, exercise, relaxation, and managing my portfolios in precious metals, bonds, and real estate....

MOST people, and I'd say MANY People might not have had the foresight I have, but I'm telling you guys, that the GOVERNMENT is getting ready to DOLE OUT BILLIONS to corporations and NOT PEOPLE...SO, to answer the question as to "Where do we get the money," simple, WE DON'T BAIL OUT THE CORPORATIONS, we let the people pay their bills with REBATE checks to those taxpayers who deserve it, earned it, or call it EARLY SOCIALL SECURITY Or whatever...Deduct it from their social security accounts in the future if you want...Still, I believe we NEED TO PUT GAS IN THE CAR NOT POUR GAS OVER THE CAR, which is what you do when you give the money to Corporations, and PEOPLE NEVER SEE IT, as the Corporations swallow it up..

I have great compassion for this country and it's citizens, and the mess the politicians and genius economists (Like SPorts experts Picking AGAINST THE CARDINALS THE LAST 4 weeks, there are no GENIUSES in power, otherwise we wouldn't be in this mess)

When I was unemployed, years ago, that CHECK I GOT, helped me survive.
SO, what are people getting today to help them pay their bills? ZERO, ZILCH, nada.
Meanwhile HALLIBURTON gets Billions, AIG gets Billions, and on and on..

What about JOE PLUMBER?

Just my take, but if we don't do something soon, we're talking the great DEPRESSION OF 2009, and you can say good bye to the USA as a World Power and kiss our INFRASTRUCTURE which is currently failing good bye..

IT IS TRUE (THE THING ABOUT LOOKING IN THE MIRROR) THAT it's the fault of those who over spent their means, bought an expensive home or condo at 'the top,' and/or didn't have a back up plan or savings should they lose their jobs, house, or that their stocks tanked this last few years...Lots of IRA's went kaput...

So, it is OUR FAULT, now doubt, the KARMA people pay, as they say, what you sow, so shall you reap..

Still, do we let our family of men and women, the family of man just go to the dogs, and laugh about how stupid they were, or as a nation, do we face this like a war, and teach them all how to be financially more responsible, cut their creidt status so they can't borrow anything, open up training facilities, (government facilities), give them a ONE CHECK CHANCE to recover, and assist, or as in Hurricane Katrina, do we just let them ROT?

Things will get a lot more worse than better, and I'd say about 80% of my friends either lost their jobs, homes, or their buns in the stock market this last year, and they were not being foolish, unless they have no savings or backup plans.
I think about 20 people have come to me for money, and I tell them all the same thing, "I'm not a bank." I'm glad I'm not as most of these people couldn't afford to pay back loans anyway....the point is, where is the love?
Do we LOVE OUR CORPORATIONS AND GIVE THEM THE MONEY, or DO WE LOVE OUR PEOPLE AND BAIL THEM OUT.
SOMEONE is going to get MONEY GUYS...Trust me, THE U.S. GOVERNMENT IS going to give BILLIONS and BILLIONS to institutions who help each other, and are invested into each other. YOu know that saying the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

I'm must saying if given the option as a citizen, I'D RATHER THE U.S. DOLE OUT MONEY TO PEOPLE TO FUEL THE ECONOMY instead of wasting it on Corporate abuse, and Institutions that suck the public dry, and it's their own faults, (The Banks and Institutions) that they are in this situation...They are the one's who are irresponsible. They are the one's who are derugulated.) Like kids out of control without regulations, we continue to enable this behavior without restriction or regulation? I SAY NO.

HERE'S THE CHOICE:
1. HELP AND BAIL OUT THE PEOPLE with MONEY.
2. HELP AND BAIL OUT THE CORPORATIONS AND BANKS WITH MONEY.
YOU DO THE MATH.
Go ahead and choose. Love to see whom here on POF would choose to ignore the public and then the NEXT DEPRESSION FOLLOWS......'
Go ahead, choose, as the US is choosing not to help the PEOPLE, not with ONE RED CENT..
WELCOME TO AMERICA.

If the Government gives people money to help them- it may only last a few months- and with some maybe just a few weeks. They will blow it on other crap..then in a few months be in worse shape than they were before. Most people will continue holding their hands out wanting more and more...I personally don't see an end to the crisis. There's just too much going on in the world today.

To Message 33--Right on the money.

Here's a Ron Paul interview from a day ago.

(Start of interview)

Texas Congressman Ron Paul has warned that passing the latest proposed economic stimulus package would be akin to pouring kerosene on an already raging fire.


Paul, who is also a member of the House Financial Services Committee, warned that such measures will cause a recession to turn into a full scale depression possibly worse than that of the 1930s.


During a Television interview with CNN, Paul explained why he believes stimulus funding is such a destructive policy.


“It’s because the government is spending it. If the people were spending it it would be fine, but the government never does anything productive. They have to take money from productive individuals and spend it in non productive ways, so it’s just digging a bigger hole, getting us into bigger debt, and that is the problem.” Paul said.


“This stimulus package is going to cost each and every American $6700 of more debt, so how can that be beneficial? If debt was the answer we would of never had a problem.


“We are doing exactly what we did in the 1930s, we are taking a recession and working very hard to try and turn it into a depression.” The Congressman added.


“What we’re worried about right now, well certainly I am, is that it’s worse than the 30’s because we’re on the verge of destroying the dollar. So if you think the financial crisis is bad, and the financial system isn’t working, wait ’til you find out when the Dollar doesn’t work.


The Congressman told viewers that only by liquidating debt, allowing the market to operate freely and allowing prices to come down will the problem be corrected.


Paul also spoke to those who have blamed the free market for the downturn and have suggested that deregulation is a primary cause of the financial crisis.


“We never had a hands off approach, that’s the fallacy, and as long as we believe that we will never correct our problem. If you blame Capitalism and free markets and sound money for this then we can’t win the intellectual fight.” Paul urged.


“If you want to regulate, regulate Government agencies, regulate the Treasury, regulate the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve has no oversight, they’re not even permitted to be audited by law, so that’s the kind of oversight we need. The Federal Reserve has committed trillions of dollars to individuals, corporations and banks, they don’t even have to tell us where it’s gone to.” he added.


The Congressman also appeared on MSNBC this morning to discuss the same issue.


One commentator suggested that Paul’s analysis was misguided because “The house is already on fire” and something must be done to put it out.


“You are correct, the house is on fire,” Paul fired back, “and you think you’re putting water on it, but I think you are pouring kerosene on it.” he added.


“We got into this mess by spending too much, borrowing too much and inflating too much. Government was too big and we had too many regulations. We had rejected the market economy for decades, we have rejected the notion of sound money for decades, and we got into a mess this way. So what is the proposal? Spend more money, borrow more money, print more money, regulate more, it makes no sense whatsoever.” Paul asserted.


The Congressman suggested that a more sound approach to the crisis would be to abolish income tax and business tax to get Americans spending, whilst simultaneously cutting overseas spending to cover revenue losses.


“But the problem is no one wants to cut the American Empire,” Paul explained.


“Even Obama’s administration wants to increase spending overseas and increase military spending. As long as you want to run the world empire at a trillion dollars a year, believe me you cannot solve this problem.” he added.

(End of interview)

My personal advice.- Watch the value of the US Dollar very, very close. It might not be a bad idea to go to your bank and get Swiss Franc's, or even Euro's would be better then US dollars. Gold and Silver would also be very smart ways to invest. Do not take on more debt.

Ok,, We want to fix our country after letting Bush and his buddies take our money and turn a surplus into the biggest deficit in the history of this country and causing another Great Depression.

Alright lets get serious...
We the People OWN some of the richest gold bearing areas in the country.
The government put military bases on this land long ago to stop people from getting to the gold.
One such base is located in Nevada..
We the people need to tell the military to start earning their pay and dig that gold up to put into the countries coffers.
This would add to our countries wealth in a real golden way.
Then we will need to keep the politicians hands off of Our money..

Edit,
You are correct.
We first need to end the Federal reserve and cut ties to all foreign banks.

Cut federal spending, cut tax rates across the board, and reduce the burden of federal regulation, mandates, and litigation. These have almost always worked in the past at every level of government and in almost every country.

Basically, private companies need certain things: private investment, energy, capable engineers, infrastructure (usable roads, freeways, airports, seaports, communications), and quality people. Once they have what they need to get new products to marketplace, every barrier that government imposes is just an artificial obstacle that drives up costs. Consumers have to pay more for all of the bureaucracy, red tape, business taxes, fees, regulatory requirements, 2-3 year impact studies, etc.

Rapid increases in federal spending have resulted in higher levels of borrowing, which we've seen with increased deficits. Investors sell stocks in order to buy up those bonds, leaving less money available in the private sector. This is the main reason that every recession since WWII has been preceded or accompanied by a rapid run up in government spending and/or a rapid increase in energy costs.

Maybe we can BAIL OUT THE BANKS, and Also HELP THE PEOPLE with their mortgages, and rental vouchers, which HELPS THE BANKS Too...

Also, restore the "Gold STandard," Silver Standard, and stop giving money away to foreign countries...

Also, tax those corporations higher if they outsource their jobs out of the U.S...

Oh yes...

I'm also thinking a moratorium on Income Tax, Estate Tax, and let the U.S. start selling some of that SURPLUS OIL THEY HAVE to fund this stuff, (THEY HAVE A LOAD)...
They got it from Iraq...

Keep it up people....I'm loving this.

As I've voiced my 2 Cents worth, many times,.......

The best way to help restore the American Economy, reduce Runaway inflation, and allow the Citizens to catch up to the Cost of Living,....is to REDUCE GOVERNMENT SPENDING, and stop all these Government Bail Outs, to Companies that got themselves into this mess by mismanagment from the CEO's that it was their responsibilties to Run and Manage their business,...not Ours.

Duh !
