IN 1932, when I was an undergraduate in college, I purchased from the manufacturer a very useful piece of office furniture. It is a frame of light steel that supports twenty-seven fairly shallow drawers of the same material. I used it to file bulky manuscripts and to accumulate materials for various projects of research on which I was then working. I paid for it nine dollars, including transportation.
I have just received a catalogue from a well-known supply house which boasts that its prices are the lowest obtainable anywhere and backs its boast with a guarantee to refund the difference, if the same item can be obtained at lower price anywhere within thirty days. It offers the very same piece of furniture for $199.95 plus transportation, which is estimated as between $25 and $30. I am glad to see that duplicates of the cabinet which I still have and use daily are available at no increase in price.
The difference, of course, is that I paid $9 in real money. The $199.95 is in terms of pieces of paper that have been dirtied by the Federal Reserve. The difference is also a measure of what has happened to the Aryan simpletons in the United States.
When the Judaeo-Communist conspiracy seized the Russian Empire in 1917-18, conditions there permitted it to begin with soul-satisfying massacres of the kind described in Paul Knutson’s article in Liberty Bell, May 1984, pp.16f. That procedure, however, was obviously not feasible in the United States at that time. The conspiracy prudently used its alternative method, gradualism. The Federal Reserve swindle had been prepared for precisely that purpose. It was used to induce increasing economic dislocations that culminated in the fake “economic depression” of 1929, which in turn permitted the election of the unspeakable monster called Franklin Roosevelt and the gradual confiscation of real money (and property) that began the actual Communist take-over of this country. The soul-satisfying massacres were postponed to the now proximate completion of the capture and occupation of the country the Americans did not have brains enough to keep for themselves.
Everyone now knows the apologue that was long proverbial in Texas. If you drop a frog into boiling water, he will jump out, unharmed. If you put him in cool water and then bring it to a boil, he will remain contentedly in the pot while he is being cooked to a pulp.
The term ‘frog-men’ is now used to designate persons who are specially equipped for diving in shallow water. It seems to me that it could more appropriately be used as a synonym for ‘Americans.’
