The Dutch Tulip Bubble of 1637
The later part of the 20th century saw its share of odd financial bubbles. There was the real-estate bubble, the stock market bubbles, and the dot com bubble, just to name a few. In each instance of price inflation people paid exorbitant amounts for things that shouldn’t have been worth anything like the going price. And each time people stood around afterwards and said “What were we thinking?”

One has to believe that the same thought occurred to the Dutch in the 17th century when they settled down after their bout with tulipomania, wherein the humble tulip bulb began to sell for prices to make New York Realtors blanch.

As much as the tulip is associated with Holland, it is not native there. Rather it was introduced in 1593 by a botanist named Carolus Clusius, who brought it from Constantinople. He planted a small garden, intending to research the plant for medicinal purposes. Had Clusius’s neighbors been morally upright, the tulip might still be a rare exotic in the gardening world. Instead they broke into his garden and stole some of his bulbs in order to make some quick money, and in the process started the Dutch bulb trade

Breaking: O’Reilly Claims He Knows What Killed Roger Ailes… Chilling
Some on the left, however, immediately seized upon the opportunity to begin dancing on Ailes’ grave, calling him the worst person in the world, insinuating that he had ruined the media by opening it up to competing voices and rehashing the recent allegations of sexual improprieties that led to his ousting from Fox — essentially expressing their palpable hate for the man, even in his death.

Liberals have lost all sense of decency. Our world has taken on a strange feel.

>> Wikileaks Assange has a 100% accuracy rate. 100%!

>> From Wikileaks:

>> So here's the REAL story. Amb. Stevens was sent to Benghazi in order to retrieve US made Stinger missiles supplied to Ansar al Sharia without Congressional oversight or permission. Hillary brokered the deal through Stevens and a private arms dealer named Marc Turi. Then some of the shoulder fired missiles ended up in Afghanistan and were used against our own military. It was July 25th, 2012 when a Chinook helicopter was taken down by one of our own Stingers, but the idiot Taliban didn't arm the missile and the Chinook didn't explode, but had to land anyway. An ordnance team recovered the seri al number off the missile which led back to a cache of Stingers being kept in Qatar by the CIA. Obama and Hillary were now in full panic mode and Stevens was sent in to retrieve the rest of the Stingers. This was a "do-or-die" mission, which explains the stand down orders given to multiple commando teams. It was the State Dept, not the CIA, that supplied them to our sworn enemies, because Petraeus wouldn't approve supplying these deadly weapons due to their potential use on commercial aircraft.
>>
>> Then, Obama threw Gen. Petraeus under the bus after he refused to testify that he OK'd the BS talking points about a spontaneous uprising due to a YouTube video. Obama and Hillary committed treason and THIS is what the investigation is all about, why she had a private server, (in order to delete the digital evidence), and why Obama, two weeks after the attack, told the UN that the attack was the result of a YouTube video, even though everyone knew it was not. Further...the Tali ban knew that this administration aided and abetted the enemy without Congressional approval when Boehner created the Select Cmte, and the Taliban began pushing the Obama Administration for the release of 5 Taliban Generals.
>>
>> Bowe Bergdahl was just a pawn...everyone KNEW he was a traitor. So we have a traitor as POTUS that is not only corrupt, but compromised and a woman that is a serial liar, perjured herself multiple times at Congressional hearings. Perhaps this is why no military aircraft was called in...because the administration knew our enemies had Stingers. Forward this again and again until everyone reads the true story."

If you read websites like this one; if you talk about ‘individual liberties;’ if you support gun ownership and the Second Amendment; you may be categorized as a ‘potential terrorist’ because your beliefs are not aligned with the agenda of the Obama’s administration’s government.

Here is the list of 72 types of Americans that are considered to be ‘potential terrorists’ in official U.S. government documents as of August, 2015. Hopefully this will become a thing of the past as our new President “Drains The Swamp.”
