 Hello folks..What does $5 buy you these days..?..A cup of coffee..10 cigarettes..a bottle of beer or pehaps a busride into town ?..If you were to lose $5 how would it impact your life ?..If you are in a fortunate position and losing $5 will not affect you greatly, this is to you. Can i make a bold suggestion and ask all of you who are able..please have a rummage around your pockets and spare whatever you can and donate it to Paranormalnews.com.  A few months ago divine intervention led me here..I was feeling pretty cut off from the rest of the world and having experiences that i had to somehow keep to myself for fear of ridicule, until that is i found you wonderful people,...this is more than just a website is a meeting place for like minded souls...i have come to know jeff a little and have read his marvelous works and i am sure that you will join me in appreciation for his work.....$5 is not a lot..and if it can help jeff expand his work here then is worthwhile cause.....god bless you

My wife and I just had a baby a few days ago.I asked my wife if I could donate 5$ to my favorite web site if I went all next week without buying a starbucks coffee.(I buy 1 coffee a day).She said sure because that will save us alittle money.I know five bucks isnt alot of money but i hope this will help my favorite site that im on daily.It was easy to donate using paypal.I urge everyone thst are regulars to do the same!I belive I have gotten MORE than five dollars worth from this site by getting to talk to GREAT people about subjects I cannot talk to people about in the real world.

I'm a college student and currently working on my first mortgage.  I have less money than the website.  I'll be in debt for the next thirty years.I don't know what 5$ means to me.  I've never seen that much before.  Any money I have belongs to a bank or government.  I just realized how bleak my life is.

Anyone who is still excuse the pun "buying" into property and saddling themselves with debt..[read about the elitists who enslave the majority into this mindset] for the foreseeable future is in need of some financial advice free of charge......dont do it...its a vicous circle and the only winners in the end are those who are running the show.!
Levinus   posted:9/18/2011 9:30:12 PM  (Reply)
Uhh, Monica...  JUST FYI. Buying into property by using debt and credibility is called INVESTING.  I promise you, any "winner" you would pick out of your book has invested and IS investing right now.  And, if that is the case, then I'm probably one of the elitists you talk about. I'm in debt, sure.  But I also have a stock portfolio, an IRA, savings account, life insurance, and college education.  I do all of this because I'd rather be in debt NOW, than when I'm 40, tired, and diabetic.  I don't quite approve of you calling my financial savvy an "excuse".  And to those who don't invest (I assume that is you, Monica), I will give you some free advice.  Attend an economics lecture.  The more I invest now, the more I can give to the website later.

Thanks, I guess.  The housing market isn't failing, Monica.  If you are selling a house, it is a horrible market.  For buyers though, some of the lowest interest rates in history are available.  It is not a "con" as you put it.  I'm honestly shocked you would say that.  Buying a home is part of starting a family and keeping them safe and securing their future.  I'm honestly curious...do you live in a structure of any kind? Monica, occasionally you have brushes of insight.  Other times, arguing with you is like trying to teach calculus to a panda.

 Yes Levinus, is a buyers market at the moment, and at the expense of thousands of families losing theirs......structure well i live in a gorgous bungalow, i sold my house at the right time and i am blessed with a cmfortable life, the interest rates will not stay down.....they are going to rise along with the cost of everything else...is a cycle of boom and bust, the is a sort of false sense of security around at the moment, and whilst i am in no way saying any of this wll affect you, but if it doesnt congrats,  you will be one of the lucky few...and the is absolutely no need to resort to nastiness, why is there a need to argue anyway ?......peace be with you.....

Just want the facts to be accurate.The housing mess here in US is as bad as ever , there are droves and droves of houses all over the place either vacant due to forecloser or pending forecloser. The stock market according to couple analysts is going to take another meltdown within the next couple years. And these are the same analysts that were laughed at and ridiculed by wall street when they were warning of the imminent housing collapse in 2008 well before it happened so I think I will believe them for now over the rest of wall street. I mean sure you can still invest as long as you realy research what you are investing in. And it is one hell of a home buyers market going on for people who know that they are going to have consistent employement or incoming money for the next 5 to 10 years. But nobody can honestly say that the Housing market in the US is good. The banks that are stuck with all these empty houses that are not selling, are in terrible shape. There are whole tracks of houses that are getting bulldozed by banks right now as I speak because they have come to the conclusion that it will be cheaper on them to take the loss. I was in Detroit in 04 when all of this shit realy started and saw what was on the way for the rest of the country. I bailed out and moved back to my home state which gave me a few years to prepare for what I already knew was coming. I know this was more of finance then a paranormal post , But I think if you realy dig into the root cause of all of it you could easily fit it into the conspiracy catagorey. (The warning signs were everywhere but were getting brushed off and downplayed by wallstreet)Detroit has always in recent times been kind of an early warning system for economic issues because of the industries there.

Oh and just to leave on a positive note with some investment advice. Be vary vary vary sceptical about investing in Gold and silver right now. The more and more ads you see on tv and the newspapers telling you it is a wise investment at this time, read between the lines. At the point when the advertising market is completely saturated with helpfull adds telling you why you should buy gold run away from it. I beleive gold is or has come close to reaching it's critical mass and is going to implode and drop like a rock. If anyone remembers this around the late 70s early 80s everywhere you turned you were hearing about investing in gold from all these real helpfull entities and look what happened shorty after. Basicly the helpfull firms that are convincing you of the great value of Gold in your investment portfolio are trying to get rid of there hoards of gold that they bought up real cheap during the last drop. (and when the adds get to a fever pitch level they know it is going to drop and they are scrambling, trying to sell everything they got.)Advice: buy it after it crashes again and stabilizes.

 in total agreement here.......with gold and silver....both prices have risen well above expectations, and now beyind the scope of the average person. althoughi have studied the metals for a few yrs as i dabble and i can say that gold will not drop not significantly anyway and silver it too is going to rise, the reasons being gold is a super conductor and is used in modern technology much the same as silver , i knew the market was going to crash  in 2007 as i worked for a company who designed and fitted the sales offices on new housing developments.....i was in the frontline so to speak i was able to see clearly the ensuing financial crisis as less and less houses were being built.......Here is my theory we have continually been in the 7 yr cycle that was first mentioned in the bible with joseph and the 7 ears of corn and 7 fat cows followed by lean years nothing has changed we still live within the parametres of these manmade cycles and will continue to do so
