To this act was attached the Thomas amendment that
provided a tax of 50 percent on all private sales of
silver when the "price" of silver was 80 cents per ounce
and the government was paying 50 cents an ounce.
Naturally, all sales were to the government to net more.
But what was government actually paying per ounce?
When the dollar by law IS approximately 3/4 ounce of silver,
fifty cents would be 3/8 ounce of silver so they were paying
3/8 ounce of silver for 8/8 of an ounce and in reality were
stealing all silver offered to the Treasury. Their victims could
not see this fraud because decades earlier they were convinced
that the dollar was just a piece of paper!
When silver was the money of account, the price of anything
meant how much silver was needed to pay for something.
The "price" of silver then meant how much silver was needed
to pay for silver which is ludicrous.
If you divided the ounces in a gallon by the ounces in a quart,
WOULD YOU HAVE THE PRICE OF MILK? That is exactly how
they first established a price for silver. They divided the 480
grains in an ounce by the 371 1/4 grains in a dollar of silver and
came up with 1.29. Then in 1968, they feared that if the "price"
of silver reached 1.29, people would melt their silver coins to
sell the silver so they took our silver coins out of circulation and
replaced them with copper clad with nickel, under the smoke
screen provided by Vietnam war. "Giddy the peoples' minds
with foreign wars and you can get away with anything at home,"
---Shakespeare. They sure got away with our uninflatable silver!
Black's Law Dictionary, 4th Ed. rev.a defines a quarter dollar as a
"copper clad coin" while a half dollar is defined as a silver coin.
Imagine, two small pieces of copper equal one large piece of silver!
Alchemy! "What fools these mortals be!"--Shakespeare
When you report an income of "dollars" to the Imaginary Revenue
Scum (IRS) under the penalty of perjury, what will your definition
of "dollar" be? HOW can there be revenue in a system where the
IRS said that dollar bills "are not dollars" and the Fed said that their
system "works only with credit", making dollar bills bills of credit ?
READ: "Money", The Greatest Hoax On Earth by Merrill Jenkins
before this out of print book is gone. You could get an audio tape
of a standing ovation speech given by Jenkins for just 4 bux. The
transcript of his 7 hour speech is 10 bucks. I asked one man how
he learned Monetary Realism and he said that he listened to those
7 tapes 10 times.
I listened to Jenkins twice monthly seminars for 2 years AND the tapes.
On a CDROM, you get all of his 7 books, audio of 7 hour speech, 30 other
tapes, Bouvier's Law Dictionary and MUCH more for 50 bux. It is really
incredible how much data can be put on one CD!
