A great conversation with the author/blogger Charles Hugh Smith who writes for the OfTwoMinds blog. We cover topics such as the financialization of our economy, the wealth and income gap, social and political subjects, and the various definitions of capitalism.

Although CHS and I weave in many topics into this episode we ran out of time to hear CHS's opinions on why we should be optimistic and hopeful of the future. That is why next week I will be inviting CHS back for another hour long discussion on Survival Preparation, Health, Diet, Organic Gardening, etc.. Should be another great chit-chat. Stay tuned.

Survival+: Structuring Prosperity For Yourself and the Nation The 5-Star rated book by CHS, available on Amazon

Je me souviens sutrout, c'est les moments comme e7a : Quand on vient me chercher pour me dire Mickaebl, des membres de ta famille sont arrive9s, tu viens ? Le0, on a le coeur qui bat e0 cent a l'heure, la pression qui monte, on de9marre au quart de tour, mais en meame temps, j'e9tais tre8s triste pour Natascha parce que y'avait pas grand monde pour elle et je l'aimais beaucoup,donc quand je partais, j'avais l'impression de l'abandonner on e9tait souvent ensemble, on faisait les truc ensemble Ca aidait e0 surmonter cette aspect dur ou de9chirant de ce cote9-le0 Paradoxalement, quand elle s'approchait plus vers les quelques personnes familiale qui venaient, je disais va t'en, c'est pas ta famille la pauvre, elle avait un petit regard,alors j'e9tais vraiment pas gentil mais e7a, c'e9tait parce que je voulais pas qu'on me prenne ma place Sinon, je l'adorais cette fille, c'e9tait incroyable. J'ai eu la chance, de faire mes sorties avec elle !! Dans mes souvenirs, j'ai l’impression qu'on e9tait un peu laisse9 Enfin, je veut dire On faisait ce qu'on voulait, c'e9tait brouillon peut-eatre ..? Et ce qui e9tait dur aussi, c'est que c'e9tait LA jungle. Je me souviens, pour se faire respecter, il fallait toujours montrer une agressivite9 envers les autres enfants, il fallait montrer qu'on osait taper pour montrer qu'on e9tait le0, que y'avait quelqu'un C'est tre8s fatiguant, je me souviens ! Mais meame comme e7a, j'ai perdu je sais pas combien de jouet.Alors le jour ou je suis parti pour de bon, de vrai, je me suis venge9. J'avais bien quatre sacs de petites voitures remplis Bien sur, ce n'e9tait pas e0 moi J'ai juste rendu le change e0 tout ceux qui m'avaient pille9 .Apres e7a, j'ai plus voulu parler de la pouponnie8re parce que j'entamais une nouvelle vie, qui enfin me permettait de m'e9lancer, ou je voulais, quand je voulais, avec tout le confort sans aucune frustration quelle qu'elle soit

Thanks man. No Wizard World for us, though. We are done trnielvag for 2011 I think. I always say that and something comes up. We have a handful of releases in early 2012, so we are socking away money to prepare for the printing costs. I hope you guys have fun and hopefully we'll see you soon. Did you ever print anything up?

Steve, that was just a brilliant conversation with Charles Smith. "Privatized gains and socialized losses." That pretty much sums up the crony system that has supplemented true capitalism in the United States through a clever bait-and-switch maneuver orchestrated by the behemoths of the financial industry. I was so pleased to hear Charles differentiate the vision of Adam Smith from the stinking corruption that now emanates from Wall Street bankers and their puppet operatives in government.

I work in law enforcement. I have no love for street-level thieves and enjoy locking them up. I am struck, however, at the disparate treatment between the drug-addicted petty thief who rides a 2-year sentence in the penitentiary and the Wall Street insider who is rewarded with opulent wealth for packaging and selling trillions of dollars of worthless financial derivatives. If you have an Ivy league education, you have a license to join Goldman Sachs, commit astonishing acts of fraud and reap only a fine from the SEC.

Where is Obama and his army of prosecutors in the Justice Department? Their lack of action is a stunning indictment of the symbiotic relationship between government office holders and their corporate sponsors.
