The Fed’s Last Hurrah

It is very important for all of us to be aware of the dramatic shift that is occurring, shifting us from a capitalist country into the throws of socialism. My best advise is to be well informed, and stand up for your freedom and liberties! This is a very good article below to read:

The Fed’s Last Hurrah
by Peter Schiff
During the 1990s, inflationary Federal Reserve policy
fueled a tech stock bubble. When that bubble burst,
the Fed inflated a larger one in real estate. Now that
the real estate bubble has burst, the Fed is inflating the
biggest bubble of them all – a bubble in government.
While the earlier booms at least provided the illusion
of prosperity and some fun while they lasted, the
government bubble will cripple the economy and
deliver widespread misery to the vast majority of
Of course, there will be winners in the government
bubble, at least for a while. As was the case with the
stock and real estate bubbles, plenty of money will
be made by the well-connected and parasitic classes.
Government employees will continue to enjoy pay
raises at our expense, as will anyone benefiting
from the new wave of subsidies, such as Wall Street
investment bankers, financial speculators, and those
working in health care or education.
These gains will come at the expense of the taxpayers
who foot the bill and the consumers who face higher

Time is running out for taxpayers to plan and take advantage of some tax-saving breaks.
Here are some tax deadlines to keep in mind:

Buy a First Home before December 1st, 2009 to claim the First-time Home Buyer Credit: For 2009, the repayment obligation is eliminated for taxpayers who purchased homes after December 31, 2008. The maximum value of the credit has increased to $8,000. The new measure removes the prohibition on financing by mortgage revenue bonds, and extends the availability of the credit for homes purchased before December 1st, 2009.

Buy a New Car by December 31, 2009. Buyers of new vehicles may be able to deduct the state and local sales and excise taxes they pay on new cars, light trucks, recreational vehicles and motorcycles through 2009, but not the interest on their car loans.

Make Energy Efficient Improvements to Your Home before December 31st, 2010. Some home improvements made in 2009 and 2010 to increase the energy efficiency of your home may have a silver lining at tax time. Adding insulation, energy-efficient exterior windows, and energy-efficient heating and cooling systems may qualify for a tax break. These improvements may qualify for a credit of 30% of their costs up to $1,500. Residential energy credits apply to homes, houseboats, mobile homes, condominium, and qualifying manufactured homes in which you live.

The Unseen of the Infinite Banking

By Andy Safa

A little over a month ago I had the great privilege of having dinner with R. Nelson Nash. If you have had this experience, you know what a treasure it is in the fact that when you are in Nelson’s presence, you always find yourself a better, more knowledgeable and creative person.

A lot of very interesting and mind expanding conversations took place, but a certain thing Nelson spoke about especially stuck with me and turned the brain switch on. It was regarding the unseen factors of a life insurance policy. Nelson was telling us the story of when he was involved in a great real estate deal where he was in need of immediate cash to settle it. As soon as he heard he went down to State Farm and asked for a policy loan. Forty-five minutes later Nelson had a check in that man’s hand and the deal was settled.

Nelson then spoke of something that rapidly got my attention. “You can’t see on a ledger”, he said “You have the seen, and then you have the unseen. Whole Life as we know it, has incredible and infinite utility that is limited only by the ingenuity and creativity of the individual who owns it. The purpose of this article is not only to point out the unseens of the product and the process, but also by shedding light on the unseen, I hope to expand the creativity of the individual who reads this. In order for me to achieve this, I must again look at this in a macroeconomic point of view.

If someone would ask me on the definition of economics, in a very short answer I would say The “Science of Scarcity”. At anytime we are considering utilization of a scarce resource we have purely an economic dilemma. Money is certainly a scarce resource. Now this does not mean that if someone has made someone has lost like the socialists believe. As Adam Smith said in the Wealth of Nations,

TACKLING ACADEMIC CHALLENGES- Parents of College Bound Students

            In the midst of the flurry of activities with life, work and a child’s school and outside activities, parents may or may not immediately notice if there are certain areas in which a student’s academic performance is slipping a bit.  In some cases, this can happen so incrementally that there is barely any attention paid to it until the end of a semester, when the performance becomes part of the academic record!  Certainly, report cards are useful in this regard, although many times kids might not feel overly excited about this.  Each term or semester, the report card provides an assessment of where your child is currently in his or her academic progress.  If there is slippage, then obviously the grades will indicate this.  When parents receive the report card and notice that their child’s grades are not where they had anticipated they would be… then it is indicator that it is certainly time to make some positive changes. 

Now, while report cards are useful in this regard, it is far better to find ways to adjust to academic changes “on the fly.”  This is because fixing an academic challenge in mid-term allows the student to positively affect the actual grade that is reported onto his or her transcript, rather than waiting until the damage is done and then fixing things for the next semester or term.  Naturally, staying abreast of the academic climate during the school year – and not only on vacation – requires a little bit more effort and communication, both on the part of the parent and the student.

Fortunately, this may be easier than most people think.  There are several things that a parent and student can do.  First and foremost, it is vital to maintain communication with your student, as well as with the high school teachers or administration.  You can schedule a meeting with parent, student, and teacher.  By having all three parties present, there is less room for misunderstandings or misinformation.  We do recommend asking the teacher directly what his or her recommendations are, because in many cases this alone can remedy the situation.  History has shown that if grade performance is quickly assessed and addressed, the problem can often fix itself. 

However, if more intervention is needed then it might be time to enlist some reinforcements.  Tutors and instructors may be willing to advise and help in just about any subject.  Some schools even offer peer-to-peer tutoring.  There might be an arrangement that can be made directly with the teacher of the class or classes that are in need of attention.  If the teacher is willing, your child could schedule regular appointments to go over areas of the subject that he or she has been struggling with.  All in all, if you tackle this issue in the middle of the semester then the long-term results are generally far more positive!

Why Have Your Life Insurance Reviewed?

Interest Rates

  • Interest rates are at historical lows, which mean your life insurance policies may not perform to the standard originally illustrated.

Longer Life Expectancy

  • Because people are living longer, millions of current life insurance policies have become outdated.
  • As a result, you may be paying premiums on policies that may expire or terminate.

Underwriting Has Changed

  • Medical advances and changes in underwriting procedures have impacted the way that health issues are rated.
  • The outcome has been significantly improved ratings for many clients, resulting in lower monthly payments, higher benefits or extended benefits.

Objective Review

  • Our objective, third-party review will give you the peace of mind to know that your policy is still in good health.
  • If your policy is in danger, JTS Financial will offer you recommendations to improve the performance of your policy and insure that you have the protection you need.

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom.
“What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
“The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from
somebody else. “When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to
take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody
else is going to get what they work for; that, my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot
multiply wealth by dividing it.”
~Dr. Adrian Rogers (1931-2005)
