Food For Thought - The Petrodollar Explained

So what do you think?


  1. I seldom if ever watch a video of this length to its end. But this time I did. Being old enough (b.1951) I remember events leading up to the conclusion. McCarthy. Bay of Pigs. Cold War. Vietnam. Nixon who of "I am not a crook" fame. Nixon who took away the gold standard that started the cascade. the arrogance of a nation insisting on its currency be the common currency. Libya. Iran and the Shah. Etc. etc. etc. Is there anyone wandering around with a lantern looking for an honest man? He would not find one in government of the past few decades or now.

    I am angry, because I see it all happening and feel the helplessness. Not for myself, but for my grandchildren.

    Now I will go throw up.

    Great post.

  2. i dont think you would find one these days...i dont know where we took a hard left turn or when the kingdom got sold out....

  3. Yep, exactly what is going on, sadly

  4. That's the truth, unfortunately!
