What is wrong with this picture?
They are doing what Republicans get paid to do - defending the Holy Welfare State by changing the subject.
You didn't think the Washington Generals were a real opponent for the Globetrotters, did you? :)
Americans are not Europeans. Ergo...
is this wrong?...I’d rather my tax dollars to be spent on interest on the debt more than being spent on more welfare.
It’s okay: Americans love high taxes.
That’s why we keep voting for them. :)
Oh please, we can just print all the money we need.
I pointed out the fact that to some degree (and growing) that we are all greeks now and that the worlds economy is on life support and the doctors are all quacks and crooks! But I was surprised by the skeptsim of those who don’t seem to see it.
If the present spending continues I don’t see how we can avoid a collapse like that of Argentina ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yerKMQc7-w&feature=grec_index )but on a global scale.
But the market is up you say, yeah its up using billions in printed money in the hands of corrupted bankers, investors and their cronies. The world is now flooded with fake and faux money. The game is so rigged and now even the house is starting to lose.
When the whole thing tanks as it will what do you think the entiled class will do when they cant get their cell phones, their food stamps and EBT cards, rent vouchers and so forth.
What we will see is a much more violent version of Argentina, (checkout what is going on in Greece).
American has an even a larger entitlement minded population and much more violent and armed onen than Argentina or Greece.
I see many many small business wiped out by flash mob looting, and see rape, robbery and murder for murder sake. Many of these yutes will think no more about killing you than most people think about stepping on a roach. That will be the test of many. Most preppers I know are Christian people and they will hesitate to do what they might have to do to stop the yutes. On the other hand the yutes wont think twice nor lose a minute of sleep, in fact they will smile and laugh about it.
Think of this quote which is one of my favorites:
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Siege of AR-558 (#7.8) (1998)
Quark: Let me tell you something about Hew-mons, Nephew. Theyre a wonderful, friendly people, as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working. But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people... will become as nasty and as violent as the most bloodthirsty Klingon. You dont believe me? Look at those faces. Look in their eyes.
On top of all who knows how many saboteurs (Islamic, Chinese etc) and sleepers have crossed our borders and are now just waiting to cause havoc.
For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:
NOTE! THIS IS A FREE DOWNLOAD. I DO NOT MAKE ONE CENT OFF MY PREPAREDNESS MANUAL!
For those of you who havent started already its time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.
As the LDS say When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.
Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3
Lastly this for the doubters and the scoffers.
There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.
Underestimation can be fatal.
I just published a book called “Biflationary Depression: Protecting Assets From Inflation & Deflation In A Keynesian Collapse”. It contains groundbreaking stuff, including a Biflationary Index that shows just how screwed we are. We haven’t bottomed out yet by any means.
When you research for a book like this, you look at all the numbers and they give you nightmares. Look at the Biflationary Index here; http://www.futurnamics.com/biflation.php
Those of us who are awake and aware are already active. We are also not enough of a force compared to the gimme-gimme types out there.
This situation will get worse. There is no fixing it this side of outright collapse.
I would dearly love to be proven wrong.
Republicans have been hammering the message of the debt/deficit for months...make that years.
We can handle 2 messages at once (though I agree that you have to pick your issues carefully). The assault on religious freedom is a pretty big issue as well.
Bracko Bama without doubt has been the worst disaster to fall on this country.
However he didn’t do it alone he had plenty of help from both parties.
No it won't.
Then, even moreso than now, the Federal Reserve will just print it.
But, as the supply of dollars in existence approaches infinity, the value of each dollar approaches zero.
Contemplate what that means.
