The U.S. now has 10 illegal bases in Syria, when will our criminal foreign policy end?

    Never Ed. How long is it going to take you to figure this out?

    Never is a long time. When will you understand that the money system is the cause of our criminal foreign policy? Only when the money system ends can we stop our illegal interventions in other countries in order to control their natural resources for monetary profit.

    The money system will never end either Ed. It's time you move on. Enjoy life and quit worrying about this stuff.
  • EdBEdB Senior Member Posts: 2,843 Senior Member
    I am enjoying life, in fact I'll be fishing the Lake Fork of the Gunnison today with my son. That doesn't change the fact that the money system is the cause of our criminal foreign policy and that I should do all I can to change it.

    Doesn't sound like it Ed. Sounds like you spend the majority of your time worrying about that which you can't control...Money and War.

    Posting about it on fly fishing board with an audience of about 10 people isn't going to change it.
  • EdBEdB Senior Member Posts: 2,843 Senior Member
    It won't change as long as people (like you) don't want to change it.

    An incorrect assumption, I choose not share my opinion. All I was saying is; sticking your head in the sand is freedom to not care.

    Good to see you back to posting here more. I was beginning to become a bit worried. Hope you enjoy fishing with your son.

    I'll assume this was directed at me.

    It's not about being ignorant. It's about not worrying about that which I can't control.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    So you agree with Ed? You think that somehow the money system will change and wars will end? You think posting about it to an audience of 10 people will change things? Good luck. Ha ha ha...

    Actually no, it wasn't. But if the shoe fits 😜 no I meant people who don't care about what's going on around them.

    Had an excellent trip to the Lake fork of the gunnison from Pagoda Springs, we caught over 60 trout in a day and a half.

    Ok, Ed, I'll bite at this scraggly feathered hook again: If all wars are about the money system, what about those described in the bible? None about ....gods, etc??

  • EdBEdB Senior Member Posts: 2,843 Senior Member
    Since all people deal with the money system, the religous wars of the bible were also about money and the control of natural resources.

    OK, ED, you are finally exposed!! There is NO Pagoda Springs, Colorado, and the distance from Pagosa Springs, Colorado to Lake City on the Lake Fork is 112 miles by slow mountain roads.
    Are you so embroiled in the money system that you own a helicopter? And 60 trout??
    I am warming back up to the money system.

    Natural resources exist without a money system. It was the need for salt that created the need for money to buy it, if a barter was unavailable, not the other way around. Wars were fought at times for control of the salt (or the coal, ore, etc), not the money.

    My phone keeps misspelling Pagosa, and yes we drove there in a pickup truck, got there in three hours, fished all day till 7:00, got up today fished till 11:00 and drove home.

    It was closer to 65 wild trout from 10 to 17", probably the best day fishing in my life.

    And the sale of the salt, ore, etc produced money so the wars were for the resources which converted to money.
  • creekguycreekguy Senior Member Posts: 3,905 Senior Member
    But even if there were no money at stake, they would still have fought over the salt! (Running to his maps to figure out were he fished. Was he in a boat?)

    Indeed. We can pontificate about the Money system, or we can do a deep dive on the important issues.

    Tight lines forever Ed; even though I will always believe that Energy Credits are just another currency unit I am happy for you and your son son for your fishing trip.

    No, but I do believe that our foreign policy is not something that should just be blindly accepted because, "It's about not worrying about that which I can't control." That is not to say I agree with his conclusions or his remedy.

    Seriously if you do not want to discuss this stuff with him, there are less rude ways to express it.
