Stocks Basics: Introduction
Turn on the TV news or open a newspaper, surf the internet or listen to the radio, and you will probably come across some information about the stock market: “The Dow Jones closed at record highs”; “The S&P 500 is trading down two-tenths of one percent”; “The stock market is reacting to news from Washington.” The stock market seems to be everywhere in our daily lives, but what exactly is the stock market?

Pornography as a Secret Weapon “We corrupt in order to rule.”— Italian Freemason Giuseppe Mazzini . . . by Lasha Darkmoon How do you take a nation of free and independent citizens and turn them into slaves? The answer is simple. As the sorceress Circe, with a wave of her magic wand, turned the followers of Ulysses into grunting swine, you can wield your weapon of mass hypnosis, the media, over a nation and transform its citizens into willing slaves. You can learn to roboticize man and turn him into a living machine. Is there a secret weapon or “magic wand” for turning men into swine? 1.
