What Is A Resource Based Economy? - 01/27/10 07:48 AM
Answer: The Venus Project proposes we work toward a worldwide, resource-based economy, in which the planetary resources are held as the common heritage of all the earth's inhabitants. The current practice of rationing resources through monetary methods is irrelevant, counter-productive, and falls far short of meeting humanity's needs. Simply stated, a resource-based economy utilizes existing resources - rather than money - to provide an equitable method of distribution in the most humane and efficient manner. It is a system in which all goods and services are available to everyone without the use of money, credits, barter, or any other form of (3 comments)
The Left/Right Political Paradigm In Simplicity - 01/25/10 10:13 AM
The left/right political paradigm is a sick, worn-out, broken system that is no longer relevant. Nothing ever changes as we put in a different person or when a political party wins control of Congress. The end result of a new party or person causes continued strife by the opposing party. It is a joke perpetuated on the people who think their voice is truly being heard. 2 parties, 1 agenda. Democrats: Political Party favoring welfare and warfare Republicans: Political Party favoring welfare and warfare Liberals: Political Party favoring welfare and warfare Conservatives: Political Party favoring welfare and warfare Fascists: Political Party favoring welfare and warfare Socialists: Political (0 comments)
I Have $8 million in Assets - 01/20/10 09:02 PM
I have a high six-figure income, stellar credit history and $8 million in assets and I cannot get a mortgage. How can this be? Is it because more and more rich people are falling behind on their loans? Is a 12% rate of default by rich people on a loan of $1 million or more the cause for the denial of my mortgage? I know that 12% is twice the rate of loans under $250,000 and nearly triple the default rate on million dollar mortgages 12 months ago, but look at my stats. No late payments, $8 million in assets and a high 6 figure income. What gives? (7 comments)
U.S. Economy - Tanked by Mistake or Intent - 01/20/10 04:27 PM
Here is an excellent article written by Bill Sardi from LewRockwell.com. Is the U.S. Economy being tanked on purpose or by intent? If you are a student of history and or read some books on this subject matter, you will know it is by intent. As I have stated numerous times in the past, our economy is engineered by design and run in the same matter. The promotion of perceived scarcity for profit is one example that provides wealth to certain people at the expense of everyone else.

Fundamental Level as Human Beings - 01/20/10 12:26 PM
How is it that we have such limited amount of money to research cures for disease, need for poverty, and charity, but unlimited amounts of money and resources when it is time to go to war? The world over deserves better than what we have now! Politics, religion, money, class, race, ethnicity, patriotism, etc., keeps us divided. Down to the fundamental level we are all human beings and we should treat everyone the same. Period! Let's all grow up or we will cause our own demise in the end. (0 comments)
Real Estate Foreclosures - 01/20/10 10:16 AM
With the resetting of the ARM Alt A loans and the recasting of the 'neg am' Option ARM's, a new wave of foreclosures is upon us in 2010. An expected 3.5 million loans will go into default and enter into some state of foreclosure this year. This number does not include more job loss and job outsourcing, so the numbers could be higher. Right now banks are so over loaded with foreclosures, many of them are letting the homes go to their books for bulk resale instead of wanting to negotiate more short sales. On top of it, there are not enough people able to (3 comments)

Here is a close look at their mirrors and smoke machines, the pulleys, cogs, and wheels that create the grand illusion called money. A boring subject? Just wait. You'll be hooked in five minutes.

It's all here: the cause of wars, boom-bust cycles, inflation, depression, prosperity. Your world view will definitely change. Putting it quite simply, this may (0 comments)

The Great Credit Contraction - 01/18/10 02:22 PM
Give me control of a nations money supply, and I care not who makes it's laws. Mater Amschel Rothschild, founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty.
I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored (2 comments)
What Is It? - 01/17/10 10:21 AM
With all the divisionary aspects that control and consume our lives down to the second of every day, there is a better way for everyone to live when you understand we are all the same down to the fundamental level of being human. We all need clean air & water, and plants & the sun to live, so why so much misery? Power and control!! What is the Venus Project? Very Briefly, The Venus Project is an organization that proposes a feasible plan of action for social change; one that works toward a peaceful and sustainable global civilization. It outlines an alternative to strive (0 comments)

The Obvious - 01/15/10 08:30 AM
A news article came out this morning on Yahoo talking about the 4 things they are hoping will not happen that will impede economic recovery. There must of been a think tank of epic proportions that came up with these 4 obvious possibilites that can occur. I will put there 4 rainbow coated thoughts in bold, followed by my commentary. 1. Housing tanks all over again: Those who came up with this one obviously do not pay attention to the world around them. There are reports, and I know from past work, that another wave of foreclosures are upon us with another (3 comments)
A Rare VH Gem - 01/13/10 10:46 PM
Listen to the guitar. Definitely sounds like the Steinberger GL 2T Eddie used on the 5150 album, which means this song was recorded '85-'86. My ear is so tune with Eddie's and VH's sound, I can pick it up rapidly going through radio stations. I know there is material for hundreds of recorded songs sitting in the bowels of Eddie's 5150 studio. I'm itching to listen to this unreleased Guitar God's music. I bow down and worship the God of Rock! I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy! (1 comments)
Avatar - 01/12/10 09:00 PM
If you have not seen Avatar yet, you are missing a masterpiece. During the film, I had to bite my tongue from screaming resource based economy! We are killing the planet, polluting our water & air and poisoning our food with deadly chemicals and toxins. Our current path is not sustainable and we need massive change to avoid the inevitable destruction of Earth's natural resources. This is why I am an advocate for a resource based economy and a huge supporter of The Venus Project. There are so many opinions and interpretations with no technical solutions to issues that plague the world. (9 comments)
Future For Sale - 01/11/10 03:02 PM
People started to question what money is when the banks received $700 Billion. Where did it come from and how were the banks able to receive so much money in such a short period of time in order to not go out of business. People around the world are starting to wake up to what is going on and seeking other ways of living outside the monetary system. We have the power to do just that! (0 comments)
401K/IRA Screw Job Coming? - 01/09/10 09:58 AM
Money is no longer relevant especially if no one has any after the Gov't and Banks are done looting us! The banks engineered the sub-prime crash to loot the wealth of many people. Dot bomb was the same. More foreclosures the world over coming including commercial real estate, so this is no different. The banks win because 'we the people' bail them out per their set-up and design in 1910 with the inception of creating The Fed. There is only three things you need to know about money.- Fiat: All money is fiat - forced legal tender- Fractional Reserve Banking - money created (5 comments)

Zeitgeist - "the spirit of our time" What is Zeitgeist Movement?Started in late 2008, The Zeitgeist Movement exists fundamentally as the communication and activist arm of an organization called The Venus Project. The basic pursuit of The Movement is to begin transition into a new, sustainable social design called a "Resource-Based Economy". This term was first coined by Jacque Fresco of the Venus Project and refers to an economic structure based exclusively on resource management and relevant education.The world today has become very detached from nature, with techniques of production and distribution that have no relationship to the physical environment.

A Government of Bankers - 01/08/10 01:50 PM
A Government of bankers, for the bankers, by the bankers. I feel at this point, these guys are continuing to write the next chapters in 'The Creature From Jekyll Island' without needing assistance from the author. It is beautiful to watch this. Our fake economy is coming to light for the world to see firsthand! So let it be!!! Our economy is one gigantic ponzi scheme. (2 comments)
H.R. 3200 - Key Points - 01/08/10 11:19 AM
H.R. 3200 - The Government HealthCare Bill: Reads like a modern day eugenics program with a $2 Trillion price tag in which we will have to pay through inflation on top of the $54 Trillion combined Gov't and personal debt that already exists. Let the bankruptcy of our country and every citizen in it commence! Taxes, taxes, inflation, taxes, inflation, inflation, taxes, inflation....Resource Based Economy -Absolutely! (0 comments)
