I’ve made no secret as to what I think will happen with an economic collapse.
The mathematics are indisputable; it is physically impossible to pay off the real national debt (the public debt standing at ~$17T, the off-book debts at $238T+). Thus, a financial collapse that will make “The Great Depression” look a minor speed-bump is assured.
Even Alan Greenspan, the man directly responsible for the dot-com bust AND the real-estate bust of 2008, finally admitted this, and recommends we buy gold. Of course, back in his early days (while a fan of “crazy” Ayn Rand) he stated that gold is the ultimate form of economic freedom. The inverse, of course, is that fiat money is the most efficient form of slavery. So all the crap that he did to “blow bubbles” in the economy, he knew beforehand would be an ultimate failure, and has just admitted that his efforts were complete failures. Let that sink in for a minute… when the former Federal Reserve chairman admits his efforts were failures, and his previous writings make clear that he knew such efforts would actually destroy the dollar, then all the religious fervor assigned to “the Maestro” Greenspan, was faith in a false idol.
He was merely the latest flim-flam artist to sell America on its own destruction, via currency debasement. Ann Barnhardt accurately details the history, and our current results in terms of debt, man-years of work needed to pay off the debts, and so on.
I’ve been an economics geek for 25 years or so… studied how money works, and how it does not work, long after I finished my undergrad degree (economics) and my MBA. I can say from experience, that NO school is going to tell you the entire financial system is a fraud, NO school is going to tell you that the Federal Reserve is private entity, and that the dollar bills we use represent values of debt, rather than stores of value. NO school will be permitted to tell you the full, unadulterated truth.
George Carlin was a crusty old curmudgeon of a guy, who more than made up in common-sense, what he lacked in the way of formal indoctrination education.
And here is what he said:
“The real owners are the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians, they’re an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the statehouses, the city halls. They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all of the news and information you hear. They’ve got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else.”
“But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago. “You know what they want? Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork but just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And, now, they’re coming for your Social Security. They want your fucking retirement money. They want it back, so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all, sooner or later, because they own this fucking place. It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club.
By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table has tilted folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-working people . . . white collar, blue collar it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means . . . continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t give a fuck about you . . . they don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t care about you at all . . . at all . . . at all, and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes everyday, because the owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American Dream cause you have to be asleep to believe it . . .”
The systemic corruption he describes is so blatant, those who deny it are either beneficiaries of that corruption or so damned stupid that they should be sterilized.
Really, it IS that bad.
But an interesting turn of events has happened; the corrupted economic system is collapsing on itself, and the public is waking up to that fact.
Ironically, it’s not the few remaining productive people in the workforce that are protesting. The guy being robbed (Peter) is not protesting so much, as Paul is protesting that he wants more money, more opportunities, more of EVERYTHING that belongs to Peter. The so-called Free Shit Army (FSA) is slowly realizing that prices are going up, but their proceeds from Peter aren’t matching… some of the more intelligent people within the FSA are even going so far as to observe that the money being stolen from Peter isn’t helping them to get ahead. It just feeds them at their current state. Imagine a group of people becoming complacent and living off the largesse of government (after the money was stolen from Peter), rather than learn how to get off your fat asses and work to improve your lot! The insolence of some people! The FSA has now been betrayed by Obama and friends, by executive actions to allow millions of illegals into the country, to steal the few jobs that the black community actually have.
But hey, as a politician, once you have the FSA eating out of your hand, with their vote as the debt to be repaid, then where else will the FSA turn to, when you stab the FSA members in the back? Republicans??? Ahh, YEAH. That’ll work. Watch the election Kabuki theater next week, to see which whore the voters decide will be “true” to them…
NONE of it matters, though. When the money stops flowing, all HELL will break loose.
For the “owners” of this country, the game is winding down, like the last few minutes at the end of a tough football game… they’re watching the clock, there’s two minutes left in the 4th quarter, and if they can just make it, somehow, to the end… but they’re 10 points down, their star QB is out with a twisted ankle, and they know there won’t be any miracles to turn things around. The “owners” know that the entire western civilization is simply awash in bad paper, massive amounts of debt hanging over their heads, without the slightest hope of ever being repaid…
… It’s “game over,” the audience just hasn’t figured it out, yet.
The banksters are deep in trouble, as deep as it gets.
The lovely aspect of the internet, technology, is that we now KNOW who is responsible for the financial collapse. When the man on the street drops his picket sign and picks up a pitchfork (or gun), the collective value of their lives will be less than zero; they’ll be more appreciated dead than alive.
This is the backdrop for the entrance of the force majeure, that makes the entire above situation moot: ebola.
You’ve read the news, you no doubt see what’s been happening: Obama and his friends have consistently screwed the pooch at every opportunity. Instead, they’ve gone full PR mode, to make it seem as though it’s not an issue. Hell, they’re intentionally importing people they KNOW are contaminated, sending US military troops to do make-work projects in places where they WILL be contaminated, and REFUSE to institute the most basic of quarantines.
It’s almost as though they want Ebola here…
The MSM, .gov agencies and their cronies at the CDC and WHO say (to us) that it’s really difficult to get. The reality is that the number of infected people doubles every three weeks. ~13,000 infected now (as announced by the World Health Organization on 10/25/2014). There will be more than 100,000 by Christmas, and 56 million by the fourth of July. By Thanksgiving next year, everyone will have it and will have either survived it, or be dead or dying.
With first-world care, mortality can be as “low” as 70%, but will be 90% after the medical system is overwhelmed and collapses.
Whether Obama and his shit-head cronies import this directly, or it lands in Central or South America first, really doesn’t matter at this point. You see, short of sealing off the borders completely, and using deadly force against those who try to sneak in (or by some other means import the virus intentionally or not) it will come to the USA. It doubles every three weeks, and NOTHING we can do to stop it, much less slow it down the slightest amount. And while it’s a terrible thing, if you’re one of the “owners” of this country, it makes a very efficient way to simply erase the debts (since the results of such a plague will collapse every economy in the world), hide their crimes… and then they can just slither away.
Do I have proof that this has been done intentionally, to make the most egregious examples of theft disappear like a puff of smoke? No, I don’t. I’m a nobody, and if I did have such proof, I’d quickly be a dead nobody… But if we assume Obama and all of his scumbag cronies are doing everything they can to bring Ebola into the USA, this would be a pretty good motive for HIS owners…
