12 Days of Christmas or if you prefer, 22 days of ADVENT
here is the LINK for the song.
If we observe last weeks perspective from here, we are unendingly grateful for the food the song sings about, especially the French Version. Seems when in English, there is an emphasis on STUFF, rather than Stuffing. Here would be that version:
“In the west of France the piece is known as a song, "La Foi de la loi," and is sung "avec solennité," the sequence being: a good stuffing without bones, two breasts of veal, three joints of beef, four pigs' trotters, five legs of mutton, six partridges with cabbage, seven spitted rabbits, eight plates of salad, nine dishes for a chapter of canons, ten full casks, eleven beautiful full-breasted maidens, and twelve musketeers with their swords “ From Wiki.
You must admit they like their food. Now the English version costs about 5% more this year, but with food inflation running about 10-15% in the developed world, we still can obtain food.
I think no one realizes how fast a severe debacle could be upon is, with the FED buying US Debt, essentially printing “funny money” as fast as they can, just like the Russians printing planeloads of Syrian Pounds as fast as their presses could run. What no one accepts is that Cost-Driven-Inflation will overcome us like a Tsunami, because they think there is NO pressure on prices, from a bad economy. Our Grocery Stores tell a different story, completely in line with what I am saying here. When Ernest Hemingway was asked how he went broke, he said:
“Slowly at first, but then it came very fast.”, and thus IMO, this is will be no different.

Since those other nasty members of the human race, BANKSTERS, have elected to screw young and old alike, it may be up to us to set the example. Buying $1,000 of someones debt for $50 seems poetic justice for predatory lending practices foisted on the young and unwary and needy. Tithing never seemed so right to me. Now since this screwing is a two way sword, with savers and pensioners getting hammered as well, it may be up to us to think of a fair way to turn that around as well. Are we that innovative? Well if the BANKSTERS can think up all these complicated ways to screw the people at large, I think someone amongst us will come up with a SIMPLE way to right this boat.........That is my hope.
I will be making a half price offer on the blog.
