Rule One. You must know the difference between an asset and a liability, and buy assets. If you want to be rich, this is all you need to know. It is Rule No. 1. It is the only rule. This may sound absurdly simple, but most people have no idea how profound this rule is. Most people struggle financially because they do not know the difference between an asset and a liability.

Robert T. Kiyosaki from the book Rich Dad Poor Dad (#ad)

Stock markets are rigged to provide funding for the shadow government. What appear as random fluctuations in the market are instead planned in advance, allowing the elite to retract their investments before a planned downturn or crash. This pumping mechanism happens on a greater economic scale as well, allowing the elite to periodically harvest wealth from ignorant citizens who buy into the illusion of a free economy.


The law of karma, the law of polarity states that you cannot have something for nothing. The price has to be paid. This is true in physics. This is physics here. This isn't witchcraft or sorcery. There has to be a price.

Cory Daniel (The Phoenix Enigma)

The more money that goes into my asset column, the more my asset column grows. The more my assets grow, the more my cash flow grows. And as long as I keep my expenses less than the cash flow from these assets, I will grow richer, with more and more income from sources other than my physical labor.

Robert T. Kiyosaki from the book Rich Dad Poor Dad (#ad)

Money isn't everything...but it ranks right up there with oxygen.

Rita Davenport

Happiness is a positive cash flow.

Fred Adler

#ad We Can't Eat Money

The biggest killer of flow is anticipation. Anticipation comes from worrying about the future, particularly when following a sequence of steps to create a pre-calculated effect. Some might attempt to apply higher principles solely as a means to obtaining more money. This is backwards from the correct system of following higher principles and letting money come naturally as a material complement to the enrichment of spiritual life. By reversing the process and impatiently anticipating the return after having applied a series of steps in order to 'milk' reality of wealth, one merely cuts off flow and suffers the consequence of exploiting higher principles to satisfy lower desires.

The proper way to open flow is to act on principle instead of anticipation. Anticipation is based on the illusions of past and future, principle exists in the only true moment, the present moment. Anticipation is temporal, principle is eternal. Following your heart, or acting from your higher center, negates the need for anticipation because first, doing so fills you with the faith and courage to know it will all work out and thus there is no worry pressing you into obsessing about the outcome, and secondly, instead of implementing a series of steps to create an eventual result, you are responding in the moment to a higher impulse, be it love, enthusiasm, or compassion.


If you know how to spend less than you get, you have the philosopher's stone.

Benjamin Franklin

Money is the seed of money, and the first guinea is sometimes more difficult to acquire than the second million.

Jean Jacques Rousseau

Money is usually attracted, not pursued.

Jim Rohn

Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship.

Benjamin Franklin

It is a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money.

Albert Camus

Lack of money is the root of all evil.

George Bernard Shaw

Anyone who says money can't buy happiness just doesn't know where to shop.


Many speak the truth when they say that they despise riches, but they mean the riches possessed by other men.

Charles Caleb Colton

When a fellow says it ain't the money but the principle of the thing, it's the money.

Artemus Ward

I've been rich and I've been poor. Rich is better.

Sophie Tucker

Money is good for bribing yourself through the inconveniences of life.

Gottfried Reinhardt

It is true that money cannot buy happiness but it does make it possible for you to enjoy the best that the world has to offer.

George S. Clason

Wealth is well known to be a great comforter.


Don't knock the rich. When did a poor person give you a job?

Laurence J. Peter

Rich people buy luxuries last, while the poor and middle class tend to buy luxuries first. The poor and middle class often buy luxury items such as big houses, diamonds, furs, jewelry or boats because they want to look rich. They look rich, but in reality they just get deeper in debt on credit. The old money people, the long-term rich, built their asset column first. Then, the income generated from the asset column bought their luxuries. The poor and middle class buy luxuries with their own sweat, blood, and children's inheritance.

Robert T. Kiyosaki from the book Rich Dad Poor Dad (#ad)

Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.

Woody Allen

If a man is after money, he's money mad; if he keeps it, he's a capitalist; if he spends it, he's a playboy; if he doesn't get it, he's a never-do-well; if he doesn't try to get it, he lacks ambition. If he gets it without working for it; he's a parasite; and if he accumulates it after a life time of hard work, people call him a fool who never got anything out of life.

Vic Oliver

The Matrix Control System takes care of its own. Those who sell their souls and assimilate themselves into the Matrix system of greed, competition, and manipulation are rewarded with sufficient material perks, social status, and power to keep them from wanting to leave.

Then there are people who look upon this system with disgust, seeking instead a path free from materialism. They live in poverty conditions, believing that the only way to be spiritual is to reject the material. However, this belief contains a fatal mistake, one that the Matrix Control System has encouraged because it disarms spiritual seekers from having any real power in the world. In truth, the key to spiritual empowerment is not in rejecting materialism, but in transcending it.

There is a difference between rejecting money and transcending money, for example. The first eliminates money from one's life, the second eliminates money's control from one's life. The first makes one slave to poverty, the second makes one spiritually free from material limitations. The first creates impotence, the second creates power.

Indeed, self-imposed material limitations can detrimentally affect one's ability to be of service to others. The greatest benefactors of humanity were those who transcended rather than rejected the system and therefore possessed the power to make a difference. For instance, Gandhi was not a poor man, but rather an educated lawyer who transcended the political and economic control system of the British Empire and was therefore able to free his people. If he had instead rejected the system and been an uneducated beggar, no one today would know his name.


When I was young I used to think that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old, I know it is.

Oscar Wilde

The only point in making money is, you can tell some big shot where to go.

Humphrey Bogart

It is sheer madness to live in want in order to be wealthy when you die.

Decimus Junius Juvenalis

A man that hoards up riches and enjoys them not, is like an ass that carries gold and eats thistles.

Sir Richard Burton

Wealth unused might as well not exist.


Riches are not an end of life, but an instrument of life.

Henry Ward Beecher

If you don't want to work, you have to work to earn enough money so that you won't have to work.

Ogden Nash

When I want a bigger house, I first buy assets that will generate the cash flow to pay for the house.

Robert T. Kiyosaki from the book Rich Dad Poor Dad (#ad)

The acquisition of riches has been to many not an end to their miseries, but a change in them: The fault is not in the riches, but the disposition.


Fortune does not change men, it unmasks them.

Suzanne Necker


In Case You Didn't Know


Trump's Jab = Bad

Did you know that Trump's rushed experimental rona jab has less than one percent overall benefit? It also has many possible horrible side effects. Some brainwashed rona jab cultists claim that there are no victims of the jab, but person after person will post what the jab did to them, a friend, or a family member on web sites such as Facebook and Twitter and they'll be lucky if they don't get banned soon after. Posting the truth is “misinformation” don't you know. Awakened sheep might turn into lions, so powerful people will do just about anything to keep the sheep from waking up.

H Word and I Word = Good

Take a look at my page called The H Word and Beyond. You might also want to look at my page called Zinc and Quercetin. My sister and I have been taking those two supplements since summer of 2020 in the hopes that they would scare away the flu and other viruses (or at least make them less severe).



B Vitamins = Good

Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I've been taking Jarrow B-Right (#ad) for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.



Soy = Bad

Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn't bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can't tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.



Wheat = Bad

If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by Ken D Berry, William Davis, and Ivor Cummins. It seems that most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: Undoctored (#ad), Wheat Belly (#ad), and Eat Rich, Live Long (#ad).



Negative Ions = Good

Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.



Litterbugs = Bad

Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground. Also remember that good people clean up after themselves at home, out in public, at a campsite and so on. Leave it better than you found it.



Climate Change Cash Grab = Bad

Seems like more people than ever finally care about water, land, and air pollution, but the climate change cash grab scam is designed to put more of your money into the bank accounts of greedy politicians. Those power-hungry schemers try to trick us with bad data and lies about overpopulation while pretending to be caring do-gooders. Trying to eliminate pollution is a good thing, but the carbon footprint of the average law-abiding human right now is actually making the planet greener instead of killing it.


Eliminating farms and ranches, eating bugs, getting locked down in 15-minute cities, owning nothing, using digital currency (with expiration dates) that is tied to your social credit score, and paying higher taxes will not make things better and “save the Earth.” All that stuff is part of an agenda that has nothing to do with making the world a better place for the average person. It's all about control, depopulation, and making things better for the ultra-rich. They just want enough peasants left alive to keep things running smoothly.

How to Wake Up Normies

Charlie Robinson had some good advice about waking up normies (see the link to the video below). He said instead of verbally unloading or being nasty or acting like a bully, ask the person a question. Being nice and asking a question will help the person actually think about the subject.
