So the new healthcare system has been in place for a few weeks now and I am noticing more informational commercials on the tv and radio for government websites that help you find a health insurance plan that meets your needs, etc.
This is why I was for the new healthcare reform and a change to our old system. This seems to be the best way to bring credible and better healthcare to people that can’t afford it. Normally this is not a very republican view, but I do have my own mind that I can make decisions on my own merit, which is more than I can say for half of the people in this country.
So, anyone else experiencing any differences in their lives because of the new plans? Is it for the better or worse for your life? Let’s discuss in the comments below and share some stories, information and opinions on the topic of the new health care reform. At least now, discussing it will actually be based on the real health care act and not pure speculation on heresay and what people “think” it is all about and how it will work.
The truth is finally known and, in my opinion, it’s better than a lot of people thought it would be, even myself.

There’s a big trend across the world right now… governments are buying gold. Why is this a concern? Well, it is usually a sign of concern in governments and thinking that the value of their currency will see a major fall. So when a government senses this, they buy gold to keep in reserves. Once this trend starts, other governments start doing the same (they don’t want to be left out with not enough gold, right?) and then scarcity of gold ensues… which means? Gold prices go up fast.
The power of gold comes from it’s intrinsic value and the fact that it can’t be made by man.. that’s obvious right? Well, since the US is no longer on the dollar standard, we don’t have the gold to back up all of the printed money. That’s scary right? Well, that’s where we are in the US and we don’t feel comfortable with it for the most part. What can be done about it now? Nothing really, but getting invested in gold is a start. You can move your IRA or 401k into gold quickly and easily and avoid getting caught in a currency downfall. A good website to learn about it is www.physicalgoldiras.net or something like this article from Forbes.
Next time I write about this, it will be about hyperinflation and why this is even scarier… check out this:
Now that information should be eye opening to say the least. I moved some of my own funds into gold years ago, and even some into silver because I was worried about another economic disaster. Although the stock market did take a huge hit, it wasn’t as bad as I feared, but I am glad I did more some of that money around because gold and silver have really increased my retirement over the last 6 years and helped fight against a down market. Consider the same for yourself.

Back with my crazy views on the republican and democratic parties as well as anything I find interesting. It’s my blog right? Maybe I will talk about the weather and sports if I want to… just kidding.
I will be sticking to controversial topics mostly… like anything that has to do with the government will become controversial whether intentional or not. I like to mix in views on business and the economy when discussing politics because our government should be held responsible for the economy and the work force and even the finance industry.
I always feel like the government is against the “little people” making a honest earning in stocks and commodities because they have a lot of control over it, we all know. Think about gold and why so many governments across the world are buying up and stocking reserves… and how the dollar keeps decreasing compared to a lot of other currencies. It’s all part of the politics in Washington DC and we must keep fighting for what we feel is right.
So let’s discuss and share ideas on these topics in the future. Use the comment forms to keep in the discussion but don’t put any nonsense in there, I won’t approve it.
Also, check out my random link of the day (this one is a real shocker!) while you are waiting for my next super ingenious installments: Washington DC
Thanks and enjoy your time here!
