Just Open Up Your Eyes And Look - 65 Signs That The Economic Collapse Is Already Happening
theeconomiccollapseblog.com ^ | 8/1/12

Posted on 08/01/2012 4:37:26 PM PDT by Kartographer

Do you want to know when the "economic collapse" is going to happen? Just open up your eyes and take a look. The "economic collapse" is already happening all around us. So many people talk about the coming economic collapse as if it is some massively hyped event that they will be able to point to on the calendar, and a lot of writers spend a lot of time speculating about exactly when it will happen. But as I have written about before, the economic collapse is not a single event. The economic collapse has been happening, it is happening right now, and it will be getting a lot worse. Yes, there will be moments of great crisis. We saw one of those "waves" back in 2008 and another "wave" is rapidly approaching. But all of the waves are part of a process that is continually unfolding. Over the past 40 years, the United States and Europe have piled up the greatest mountain of debt in the history of the world, and now a tremendous amount of pain is heading our way. Economic conditions in the United States and Europe have already deteriorated badly and they are going to continue to deteriorate. Nothing is going to stop what is coming.

It's a pending economic collapse when your neighbor is starving.

It's a current economic collapse when you're starving.

"as if it is some massively hyped event that they will be able to point to on the calendar"

IMO, this is true. It is human nature.

There was no declaration of war in Iraq as the congress didn't arise as one and say "We declare war." There were no WMD in Iraq because there was no building with a blinking neon sign that said "WMD HERE."

I remember many years ago there was a national folly called 'Hands Across America' where people were to hold hands and form a single line of joined humans from sea to sea. The million hippie grasp was scheduled for noon eastern. I had a birds eye's view of the line in my neck of the woods. LOL ! It was a laugh riot. You could see the look of expectation on peoples faces at the stroke of twelve as if the clouds would open to mark the happening.

I believe this is it. This is what it looks like. It will change and morph and get more dramatic but this is it. It has happened.

Recession - neighbor out of work

Depression - you’re out of work

Recovery - when Obama is out of work

I keep thinking - and hopefully I'm completely wrong on this - that, as an "October Surprise", Bam & Co. are going to pull the plug on the economy, and as it crashes peeps will riot in the streets (because their EBT's no worky), and martial law will be invoked along with no elections.

I put nothing past this regime.

The collapse will begin upon the re-election of the Obmanation (if, alas, it happens). I expect the stock market to plummet.

Listen to those speeches on sorosfiles.com

The Breitbart team lays it out clearly. The Russian ex-kgb guy is a bit tough to follow, but the others are great. I applaud him though, because his life is on the line.

Me too and Me neither.

I am still expecting a "Reichstagg Fire" incident. When obama and the Democrat Party begn to suspect that they are going to lose the election, watch for something drastic to happen.

Your Reichstagg fire will culminate in Israel's war with Iran.

Tell me who exactly will enforce Martial Law in a country this size? There aren't enough police or military to do it.
