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

LIBERALS IN SHOCK AS GEORGE SOROS GETS TRAGIC NEWS!

The left-wing group that organized the violent riot that shut down of the Milo Yiannopoulos event in Berkeley, CA is backed by none other than George Soros.

George Soros has been kicked out of multiple countries for fomenting dissent and rebellion through funding these fascist groups.

He is in short trying to impose a new world order through the backdoor. But ginning up support and paying rioters to carry out demonstrations, he creates the illusion that Trump is unpopular.

All recent polling – and polls always undercount Trump support – show Trump’s numbers are skyrocketing.

This is a well-planned assault on democracy and Soros was getting away with it. But there has been a shift, a conservative awakening sweeping the globe. And it is kicking Soros out of country after country.

Here is the links between Soros and the rioters. According to breitbart,

Follow the money around Comey.

Doublespeak is an extremely powerful weapon used to create social chaos and fear through cognitive dissonance. The sinister goal of the Left is to reduce the adult population to compliant children by institutionalizing socialism, dependency, and regression. Cognitive dissonance engenders fear and regression in adults - it is a sinister tactic being deliberately used by the Left to transform an independent adult population into a dependent compliant population. The government handouts - the free stuff - is the candy for adults.

“The CIA doesn’t take part in drug smuggling operations at the US-Mexican border” said M. Boyd. “I do not know, for now, if the men are actually affiliated to the agency in any way, but I can tell you the cocaine doesn’t belong to the CIA.”
