Mars-Uranus Results

The Weather Alternative forecast for April 14-16, 2009 relied on the Mars-Uranus conjunction for an energetic storm system to affect the Mississippi Valley and head eastward to New England.

The Weather Channel map at left for April 14th shows a low pressure system and front affecting those very areas. Meteorologists expected locally heavy rain (one to two inches) from the Great Lakes to the Mid-Atlantic Coast.

Conventional forecasters also expected severe storms over the Southeast with damaging winds, large hail, with the possibility of a few tornadoes. Some rain was expected over the New England area on the 15th.

Money and History

In my opinion, the quickest and easiest way to understand history is to study the history of money, especially gold and silver. This is because money is a mirror of civilization. Throughout history, whenever we find good, reliable non-inflated money, we almost always find a strong, healthy civilization. Whenever we find unreliable, inflated money we almost always find a civilization in decay.

The quality of money reflects the quality of ethics. This brings up an interesting question. Does good money create a healthy civilization or does a healthy civilization create good money? Which comes first, the chicken or the egg? --Richard J. Maybury

Very interesting observation. And very true. Of course the chicken (civilization) comes 1st.Money does not create civilization.Civilization creates money.
