A Celebration of the 9th Annual UsuryFree Week

Saturday, November 16th, 2013

The UsuryFree Network in
with The Family Life Foundation present

A Celebration of the 9th Annual UsuryFree Week

The Ninth Annual UsuryFree Day & Week

All of you who visit here and read this are invited to spread this information about the 9th Annual UsuryFree Day/Week throughout the world by 'word of mouth' and 'word of mouse.'

Founded on May 13th, 2001, The UsuryFree Network  with the support of the Family Life Foundation designated November 13th, 2005 as the first annual UsuryFree Day to promote awareness about the design flaw of 'usury' and how 'usury' is directly and/or indirectly related to violence, war, poverty, scarcity and lack.

In addition, and perhaps more importantly, the aim of UsuryFree Day is to promote the usuryfree, community currency movement as the optimal method of trading products and/or services locally, nationally and internationally.

It is resolved that in the not-too-distant future, everyday must become a UsuryFree Day so that everyone can experience the reality of usuryfree living. UsuryFree Day and Week remind us that we can replace usury with a simple service charge and thereby create peace, abundance and prosperity for all.

Additionally, it is resolved that the concept of dividend earnings in co-operation with entrepreneurs be advocated as an alternative to those investors who are currently relying on usury earnings on bank deposits.

Wherever you live, you are invited to make tentative plans now to celebrate The Ninth Annual UsuryFree Day and Week in your community. UsuryFree Day is celebrated on November 13th and UsuryFree Week extends from November 13th to 19th, 2013.

As you finalize these plans, please share details with your contacts and forward a copy of your plans to: with '9th Annual UsuryFree Week' in the subject line, for further networking to usuryfree creatives everywhere.

Guest Speakers:

1. Tom J. Kennedy aka “Tommy UsuryFree Kennedy” will give updates on his recent and life-long experiences with the Annual UsuryFree Week each year November. This past year was designated at The Year of UsuryFreeLiving.

Tom has been active as a part-time entrepreneur in the Self DirectedIncome (SDI) Industry
since 1979. Tom has been a participant in various barter networks since the early 1980’s when he first learned about the usuryfree LETS that was created by Michael Linton. 

Likewise, since the early 1980's Tom has been researching the banking system, the income tax system, the network marketing industry - which he prefers to call the SDI industry, -  world power and politics, the New World Order, alternative health and energy issues, historical events, freedom crusaders, conspiracy and cover-up theories, paranormal phenomenon and other uncommon information in pursuit of "truth".

In 2004, with the support of The Family Life Foundation,  Tom pioneered the Tamworth Hours Project. An article by Grasshopper Media gives a detailed review of Tamworth Hours Project: “Did Tamworth Miss A Golden Opportunity?”

In November of 2012, Tom was invited to be a guest speaker at “The 3rd Annual World Conference on Riba at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and his presentation is posted at Youtube at this link:

Noteworthy Quote:

"Interest never sleeps nor sickens nor dies; it never goes to the hospital; it works on Sundays and holidays; it never takes a vacation; it never visits nor travels; it takes no pleasure; it is never laid off work nor discharged from employment; it never works on reduced hours; it never has short crops nor droughts; it never pays taxes; it buys no food; it wears no clothes; it is un-housed and without home and so has no repairs, no replacements, no shingling, plumbing, painting, or whitewashing; it has neither wife, children, father, mother, nor kinfolk to watch over and care for; it has no expense of living; it has neither weddings nor births nor deaths; it has no love, no sympathy; it is as hard and soulless as a granite cliff. Once in debt, interest is your companion every minute of the day and night; you cannot shun it or slip away from it; you cannot dismiss it; it yields neither to entreaties, demands, or orders; and whenever you get in its way or cross its course or fail to meet its demands, it crushes you."
-       J. Reuben Clark’s classic statement on interest -- April, 1938.
