    Passage by Congress of the national health care legislation has had an unintended consequence to the nation’s coin collectors, vest-pocket dealers who buy and sell coins, and larger dealers who are frequent buyers of coins that collectors periodically liquidate as they trade up their collections for better coins, or simply sell to take a small profit or loss.

    What has happened is that effective Jan. 1, 2012, the whole system of giving and receiving Internal Revenue Service 1099 forms will be turned on its head and all persons (including corporations) who are in business will now have to give 1099 tax reporting forms for coins and other goods that they sell as well as buy.

    The responsibility for issuing forms kicks in at $600 for coins or bullion – not a very high level and one that has already started sounding alarm bells. It doesn’t matter in what form payment is made, whether cash, check, credit card, or Yap stone money, the $600 threshold applies.

  32. Mep says:

    Tom – My best bet is we’ll find our own little escapes. Don’t forget that during the Great Depression, many of the poor actually didn’t feel an impact, because they had land and hence, food to eat. Oil shortages will cause all kinds of additional problems, but if we have food to eat, at least we’ll have the energy and wherewithal to come up with some solutions.

  33. Gordo says:

    @Mep

    I guess Rick Santelli is just fine with millions of people paying mortgages that are 30 – 50 % higher than real value due to FRAUD.

  34. Sean B says:

    Stacey, how do you and Max respond to facts like,

    “Today, the Federal Reserve no longer reports M3, which is unfortunate because it eliminates the possibility of accurate historical comparisons. M3 is estimated by economists by modeling historic trends. However, these models become less reliable as we move further from February 2006, the date the Federal Reserve stopped reporting M3. Eurodollars, a major M3 component, is particularly difficult to model.
    In any case, much attention is being given to these private estimates, even though the decline in M3 they are reporting stands in marked contrast to M1 and M2. The Federal Reserve reports that these two money supply measures have grown 7.1% and 1.7% respectively over the past twelve months. Thus, by these two measures, the dollar is inflating, i.e., the quantity of dollars is expanding – particularly so for M1 – relative to the available stock of goods and services being produced in today’s depressed economy.
    This inflation is also apparent from market prices. For example, crude oil prices have more than doubled since their post-Lehman crash low. More broadly, the price index of 19 commodities compiled by the Commodity Research Bureau is up 46% during this same period…” -James Turk

    Dead zone in gulf linked to ethanol production

    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2010/07/05/MNF91E84SL.DTL#ixzz0svBA6pC0

    “While the BP oil spill has been labeled the worst environmental catastrophe in recent U.S. history, a biofuel is contributing to a Gulf of Mexico “dead zone” the size of New Jersey that scientists say could be every bit as harmful to the gulf.

    Each year, nitrogen used to fertilize corn, about a third of which is made into ethanol, leaches from Midwest croplands into the Mississippi River and out into the gulf, where the fertilizer feeds giant algae blooms. As the algae dies, it settles to the ocean floor and decays, consuming oxygen and suffocating marine life.”

    @ Youri Carma from that link on moon landings

    “The main rule of thumb in photography is that the larger the format of the film the less depth of field. For instance, 16mm film has a large depth of field. 35mm has a smaller depth of field and 70 mm (which Stanley was using in 2001 as were all of the astronaut-photographers in the Apollo missions) has an incredibly small depth of field.

    What this means is that it is virtually impossible for two objects that are far apart in the lens of a 70mm camera to be in the same plane of focus. One of the two objects will always be out-of-focus. Filmmakers like to use depth of field because it creates soft out-of-focus backgrounds that are visually very pleasant to the human eye.”

    “This depth of field is impossible in real life using a large format film like 70 mm. Keeping everything in focus is only possible if everything is actually confined to a small place.

    It may look like the ape-men are somewhere in a huge desert landscape but in reality they are all on a small set in a studio.

    It may look like the astronauts are on a vast lunar landscape but actually they are on a small confined set.

    According to the NASA literature, the Apollo astronauts were using large format Hassleblad cameras. These cameras were provided with large rolls of 70 mm film on which they took the images. This large format film is exactly the same size film that Kubrick was using when shooting 2001.”

    Have no idea if man really did land on the moon but I do have detailed knowledge on photography – was once funded by The Arts Council UK to do research on the becquerel daguerreotype photographic process – an extremely difficult and hazardous process. The above comments are some what wide of the truth on depth of field.

    Lee Friedlander uses a 6cm x 6cm MEDIUM format Hassleblad camera he is noted for comparing the very near to the far and getting it all in focus as you can see from these:-

    Many of the Apollo photographs have been doctored (some proof follows). But that doesn’t mean that we never went to the moon (though it obviously should raise at least further investigative eyebrow).

    Please note that the first picture is not from the original sources and is not reliably discredited as being altered (I’ve checked it myself). All the others however…

    Please also note that in linking to this, I’m not accusing this organisation (that I happen to admire) of wanton impropriety. What I mean is that if anything deemed ‘alien’ is considered highly classified by the military as it apparently is (ref: “Above Top Secret” by Timothy Good), then they CANT saying anything because the ‘alphabet agencies’ won’t let them (see also: The Disclosure Project testimonies http://www.disclosureproject.org/ )

  46. Majestic says:

    @ Bonn

    I assume you mean “long term health benefits”.
    Unfortunately that only applies up to two glasses per day. Above that, the risks/disadvantages start to outweigh the benefits.
    So be careful!

    Also, red wine is noticeably better (high Resveratrol compounds). (But too much wine starts to decay your teeth due to the high acidity)

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/art/4968509/Caravaggio-used-photography-to-create-dramatic-masterpieces.html

    It amazes me the amount of nonsense that is attributed to photography even by noted and ‘educated’ persons Art historian Roberta Lapucci clearly doesn’t understand depth of field either along with a whole host of problems that photography of the type suggested presents.

    Its laughable and ignorant to suggest Caravaggio used an early form of chemical photography. Roberta Lapucci should set up a test and try it out to find out why. People who are uneducated are easy to manipulate. Many artists used a camera obscura but fixing the image in a usable way only came in the first third of the 19th Century. And the one that stands today by John Herschel – Sodium Thiosulphate.

    Majestic I’ll take a look at that when I come back from the saw mills.

  54. MirrorMirror says:

    GOLD LEASING … Very interesting !!

    … By the way if you need any proof of GATA’s claims I suggest you look up and study the meaning of the term gold lease. This is an education in itself because a gold lease is like no other lease. Firstly in the case of project finance gold leases there is no exchange of physical real property a condition precedent for all other types of leasing. The term merely means a series of periodic payments in gold with the drawdown being money.

    Why are these arrangements called leases you may well ask instead of swaps which is what they are. The answer is that a gold lease contains a trust document and consequently has to executed under seal. Why does the gold lease contain a trust document? Well when you wind up a bank the third party accounts held in trust are paid out before the general depositors and creditors and treated as secured debtors.

    The reason for name lease rather than swap with a trust document is to cver the nature of the security. If it was revealed than Central Banks lend mainly against security above the depositors it tends to undermine the system. Clearly Central Banks and the IMF would not lend to each other under these conditons unless an emergency had been called in the credit of one of the Central Banks. This is the reason for swaps vs leases.

    Bear in mind that I went to Bank of England courses explaining gold leasing in the late 1970′s and these people were putting in place security documentation to cover what is about to happen now then.

    Think forty year planning cycle….

    The Diplomat : Could Japan Collapse?

    …Japan is in danger of financial collapse, Kan warned, as he called for a hike of the 5 percent consumption tax. Coming just before an important upper house election on Sunday, it was a bold move to touch a traditional ‘third rail’ of politics. And in doing so, he has turned the poll into something of a referendum on increasing the sales tax.

    Majestic – from the beginning of this link

    “Have you ever wondered where the stars went”

    In this example, the Earth has been isolated and the
    celestial backdrop was deliberately darkened”

    For people who are really interested in the truth you need to do some simple tests. Get a digital camera on a clear night set your camera up and make exposures until you see the image of stars they will be long exposures and the stars will show as white arc strips due to movement of the earth. Make a record of the exposure time. Next get an off white object like a football. Light it also outside in the dark a 60 watt filament table lamp will do at about 8 feet, frame it so that nothing else is in the shot and it fills about an 8th of the frame. Make an exposures until you can see good detail in the ball; not blown out highlights, make a note of the exposure. You will find a considerable difference in the exposure times of both. The exposure of that first shot in the video was for the earth not the stars that is why you dont see them – not enough exposure time.

    With regards those testimonials – would need to see original evidence first
    hand photographs, film and movie film. And it is entirely possible Kubrick could have set it up. If its out there it sure as heck isn’t going to get into anyone’s hands. Also context is everything – could just be joking at the
    time.

  58. Majestic says:

    @ flicks

    I agree the suggestion from that vid: “Have you ever wondered where the stars went” is a misleading furphy from the compilation’s creator. [Any significant light illuminating body (the Earth, the Moon, etc) would not allow for the even copious amount of stars in space to be properly exposed either digitally or on real film without computational compensation.]

    I posted the vid only because it seemed an easy and digestible way to get across some evidence in one hit, that (the first pic aside) many NASA images have been doctored (for whatever reason). The images therein are identified by {mission-film_magazine-image_frame} nomenclature and can be individually googled or found at http://history.nasa.gov/ or the Apollo Archive http://www.apolloarchive.com/ to evaluate for yourself direct from the source.

    With regards to the claims of those appearing for the Disclosure Project at the National Press Club conference in Washington, there is very little hard ‘proof’ presented other than: their own videotaped testimony, other corroborating evidence/testimony, and assertion to appear in front of congress under oath. There are hours of testimony and documents available from that conference (see: http://www.amazon.com/Disclosure-Military-Government-Witnesses-Greatest/dp/0967323819) from governmental, intelligence and military whistle-blowers; and I can only encourage you review the evidence for yourself at the aforementioned site.

    http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2010/05/more-corruption-bear-stearns-falsified-information-as-raters-shrugged/56753/

    I learned about this news from a documentary film director who is currently making one of the best movies we will see on what happened during the Bear fall out and how some of the fraud, known at a high level, has been covered up since then. The film is by Nick Verbitsky of BlueChip Films and is called: The Confidence Game.
