What has been a mystery to me is why “we the people” didn’t storm their palace, help them pack their bags and bid them adue back in 2013? Ignorance? Cowardice? Other? Some combination of all? — jtl, 419
In 2013, Germany Asked for Its Stored Gold. HaHaHaHaHa.
By Gary North, The Tea Party Economist
In January 2013, the German central bank asked for half of its gold back. It was being stored by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York on behalf of the German government.

The day Germany turned over its gold to the New York Federal Reserve Bank, it surrendered ownership . . . forever.
There has never been a full audit of the gold held by the Federal Reserve or at Fort Knox. “Trust us.”
If the voters in Germany go along with this, they will announce for all the world to hear: “We are dumber than dirt.”
The German government needed to save face. So, now that has been stiffed by the Federal Reserve, it comes up with an explanation. “No problem!.”
The Federal Reserve has remained silent.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers. In keeping with the “holistic” idea that the land, the livestock, the people and the money should be viewed as a single integrated whole: Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. Not only would this book make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it. It is a comprehensive reference manual for managing the working ranch. The information in the appendices and extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book.
Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual. This is the ideal squeal to A Handbook for Ranch Managers. Although the ecological principles remain the same, what was originally known as “The Savory Grazing Method” now answers to a multitude of different names: ranching for profit, holistic management, managed grazing, mob grazing, management intensive grazing, etc. Land & Livestock International, Inc. uses “Restoration Grazing” under its “Managing the Ranch as a Business” program.” No mater what you call it, this summary and synopsis will guide you step by step through the process and teach you how to use it as it was originally intended. No more excuses for failing to complete your grazing plans.
