By Zinko Jones: So China, the PRC, has cut her interest rate on a one year loan by ¼ %. Her first interest rate cut since 2008. She has begun a very aggressive spending spree building infrastructure, schools, power plants, public housing, and subsidizing the construction of manufacturing facilities. This week, too, Ben Bernanke, of the Federal Reserve Bank, FRB, told us AmeriCO.nia, the USA, is headed for a cliff. The United States of AmeriCO.nia paper dollar is about to be convicted in the court of world opinion and financial obligations for 100 years of DUI. Can you smell the green tea?
China has 160 cities with a population over one million. America has 9 … nine! Can you hear me? America has 9 cities with a population over one million. China, like the United States of America under Franklin Delano Roosevelt, FDR, is waking up to fully understand the benefits and rewards of government intervention and regulation. China is tending to and watering the future of her massive middle class garden. She has experienced scandal, but like a baby learning to walk, she will eventually run circles around AmeriCO.nia.
It’s the bottom of the ninth, the score is 160 to 9 … China is three outs away from the World Financial Championship!
A hollow, rusted shell, sprinkled with an electorate of idiota, add a dash of Goebbellian mind set, and the CEO’s of the United States of AmeriCO.nia are about to deliver America on a silver platter. Something the World Banking Cabal has desired since 1913. On December 23, 2013, on the one hundred year anniversary of the Federal Reserve Act the blade of the guillotine will fall. AmeriCO.nia has risen fully; our dear Republic will be no more. We, the People, will forget this cut of China’s interest rate. Fendi, Gucci & Louis Vuitton will bow down before China. AmeriCO.nia, the International Bank of Settlements, IBS, the International Money Fund, IMF & the Federal Reserve Bank, FRB, will line up to lick her boots as the Bank of China, BOC, becomes the world’s only sovereign banking institution not effected by the collapse of fractional reserve banking. Her wish will be our command.
The first coin authorized by the new United States Congress was a one-cent coin. Because there was not yet a government mint, more than one version of the coin was struck. The design (believed to be suggested by Franklin) shows the sun and a sundial on the obverse, with the words FUGIO and the date 1787. Centered on the reverse is the motto WE ARE ONE, surrounded by the words UNITED STATES and ringed by a chain with 13 links.
The Year of the Steel
The 1943 steel cent, also known as a steelie, was a variety of the U.S. one-cent coin which was struck in steel due to wartime shortages of copper. Due to wartime needs of copper for use in ammunition and other military equipment during World War II, the US Mint researched various ways to limit dependence and meet conservation goals on copper usage.
The Birth of Big Zinky
When the price of copper rose in 1982, the mint was forced to make a midyear change from solid bronze (about 97% copper) to copper-plated zinc. You can find cents dated 1982 made out of both metals. The only way to reliably tell them apart is to weigh them on a sensitive scale. Copper cents weigh 3.11 gm, zinc ones are 2.5 gm. The last copper penny was minted in Denver on October 22, 1982.
